What am I doing......right?

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 danacip226@msn.com. 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

  5. PLEASE help me to like The Thorn Birds! I started reading it in December of last year and then I put it down because I COULD NOT get interested...so I started again at the end of May and I'm procrastinating it! I just can't REALLY get into it...it seems almost pointless. :( But, I'm about 100 pages away from finishing so maybe if I QUIT BLOGGING and start READING...I will get something accomplished!

  8. You know after a while you just know.....whether your counting points or calories...you just know when your doing good or not even without actually counting. It just becomes second nature and i think thats a very good thing.....Jinx!

  14. Hey, if I were getting the results you were ... I'd be shouting from the rooftops. Don't feel guilty - you are doing all the right things and it's showing. BTW - last post - that's awesome about how much your face has changed. Keep going!

  15. wow. You are doing awesome. I basically have done the same thing that you have been doing keeping busy and eating consciously and while I was pregnant it helped a ton after I had the baby cause I did not gain extra weight. So I am back where I started last fall (weight wise) and am going to continue the quest for a better me. Thanks for the post
