Well I weighed in last night and had a 3.4 lbs weight loss. That brings my total to 43.4 lbs and my new weight is 221.2 lbs. When the WW leader asked for words of wisdon, well what do I say. I am not tracking my points. I am trying to be aware of what going on with me when I get the urge to eat. Am I hungry or not? Then I try to only eat when I am hungry, then I am trying to eat better foods. I am drinking lots of water. At least a half gallon a day. I am not freakishly working out. I walk 3 miles EVERYDAY, but really that's it. Another thing that I know must be helping is that I go to bed very early. Almost every night by 9 pm. Sometimes earlier, that way I don't eat late nights. I have been trying to follow what my body tells me to do...HONESTLY. I get up early also.....I am finding my routine. It feels great. I totally did not think that I would loose. I almost feel guilty. I read and hear about so many that are working their butts off and getting only a little bit of weight loss. I didn't even say anything about my weight loss in bravo time, cause I had such a fuss last week ove rthe 40 lbs and the 10%. I felt weird. Like I was bragging or something. Like....here I am again!
I have read 2 blogs this morning that I totally got me thinking. The 1st one was www.iamsucceeding.com/. She talks about when she counts her points she feels like she has an all or nothing mentality. I can relate to that. I think to myself, well I am going to go over anyway...fill in the blank. I like the way I am doing things now.
The other was from this blogger doinitforme.blogspot.com/. She talks about willpower. She talks about Mizfit's post last week about willingess vs. will power. Ok...I know that if I start with the sugary, carby, processed foods that I won't be able to stop. Now, mind you it's not every time....but I can't predict which splurge will lead to a binge. So if I remind myself that I am really powerless over that food, and that if I start, I might not be able to stop, it gives me back my power. But I wouldn't call it will power. Would you?
The last thing, and something that I am alittle afraid to post, is this. I have been drinking a juice extract that contains 7 Super Foods. I was skeptical at 1st. Believe me, I still kind of am skeptical. The bottom line is I really think in some way that juice is helping me with my weight loss. It doesn't make me not hungry or anything like that. I think, in some way it accelerates the weight loss.
I know that my weight loss so far is not normal. I mean, come on, I am like 16 weeks into this thing and in the past 2 weeks I have lost over 9 lbs. Not normal. If you are interested in the juice I am a distributor and would love to share this with you. My aunt got me hooked up with it when I first started with WW in March. If you want more info you can check out the website exfuze.com. The juice is called Seven Plus. This is also a multi-level marketing thing ( of course). I am sure there is some money to made in this thing. I am not very good at that kind of thing, so I haven't been actively working at it, but if you would like some more info you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am kind of uncomfortable about posting about the juice, cause I don't want to use my blog to pimp any weight loss product. But I am finding out that this stuff just makes me feel good in other ways too. For one thing, my knee as stopped hurting too. I haven't had to take a narcotic pain pill for the dang thing in MONTHS! That is a payoff of weight loss too, but I can't help but think the juice might have something to do with that too. Anyway enough about that.
Onward and Downward. Gonna try to keep my mood and my food REAL....lol
