25 January 2009

Does anybody have any idea about pasta... the box says 2oz. is 1 serving, do they mean dry or cooked? I put that I had 2oz. but I am not sure. I weighed 4oz. for my husband and my dinner last night but when it was cooked I only used 1 cup cooked which was a lot less then 1/2 of the total cooked pasta. I'd like to know!

Also, I appreciate everyones feedback, I am still ticked off, I did get on the scales today and am heavier today then yesterday, so for the last 3 days I've gained weight instead os lose weight. I am back up to where I started a couple of weeks ago at 185. So, I am going to take the advise I've been given and put my scales away for the week and see what it says next Sunday.

Is it the amount of carbs I'm getting? The last time I lost weight was with Healthy Inspirations and it was more of a low carb, low cal and high protein diet. I felt hungry or more, bored most of the time. I got in the habit of not eating any starch with dinner. So much so, that even before doing WW I still wouldn't eat carbs at dinner very often. I'd eat a very very small dinner and then junk food for the rest of the night. I told Vic last night I don't know if it is worth even eating healthy if I'm going to gain all this weight. I might as well go back to eating junk food, at least I wasn't gaining weight and I was using the bathroom more often... (I haven't gone to the bathroom today being 3 days)( I know that is TMI but might be part of the reason I am not losing)Or it could be that I have been exercising more in the last couple weeks then I have in years like someone said to me yesterday... but do you build that much muscle in such a little amount of time? I find that hard to believe. It could be like what someone else said, not getting enough points but I am getting close to my points if not a little more then my points each day. All the while, my husband is dropping 1-2 pounds a day! Then I go back to perhaps it is because I quit smoking and I know that effects your metabolism but then again, I've been exercising so that should counter act that. UURRGG... I am rambaling and my journal today I am sure it about the same as it was yesterday.

Well, like I said, I will put my scales away today.. this is very hard for me to do... I've been weighing myself everyday for the last 2 or 3 years... it has become a habit. I don't normally get upset about it I think I am now because I am doing all that I am supposed to (at least I think) and nothing is happening except gaining weight!

Oh, this is interesting... I was reading this morning on about.com and it had this calorie counter thing and it said I needed to be eating like 1,850 calories a day to lose 1 pound a week... From looking at my food diary I'm not eating close to that amount and I wouldn't being on weight watchers. I don't even know that I could eat that many calories a day... I haven't been feeling hungry, in fact.. I've been feeling full most all day. Maybe I might start eating a little more protein or food during my meals and less snacks and see if that helps, or perhaps I might do some yogurt rather then something sweet. Maybe I'll change it up a little and see if that helps.

I plan to go to the gym today and workout. If anything I can blow out some of this stress. You know, stress could also be a factor going on too. Both of us out of work, having to go into our savings to pay the bills.. not having the answer. I tend to not be fully aware of stresses in my life until my friends or family point it out to me. I don't really feel stressed out, I've been resting in faith that our situation is going to work out. But I must be feeling some stress about it... Well, I know I am but I don't really feel bent out of shape upset about it, it is there and I'm still moving on.

Wow... I guess I had a lot to get off my chest this morning. Till next time....

Ok, I am frustrated now. I just don't understand why I am gaining weight instead of losing weight. I am eating right, balance of veggies, fresh fruits, whole grains, lean proteins etc. .... exercising 3-4 times a week. Shucks, yesterday I worked out for about an hour then we took advantage of the nice weather and took a walk for a little longer then an hour.

The only thing I can think of is perhaps I haven't been using the bathroom everyday. During the last week I've been drinking a "get regular" tea every other day or so and it seems like on the days following drinking the tea (the days I actually use the bathroom) I am down... a lot, but then the next days I start gaining again.

That is frustrating too! A friend told me the other day that my body is going through a majior shock, she said, (which I didn't know before) that sugar acts like a laxative and I've taken most of it away and replaced it with good foods and it would just take my body awhile to get used to it.

Well, it's got to start coming off. I am going to do it for another week and if it doesn't start coming off I think I am going to switch to another "diet" or lower my points. For the most part I've been keeping within my points and in fact have a point or two left over. I hope I don't have to change becuase I really like this plan, it doesn't feel like I am on a diet and that is why I like it so much but... after two weeks (tomorrow being the start of week 3) I should be down more then .6 pounds. Vic has been on the same plan with me and has gone from 225 to 207 so... what's up with me??

Well, my company accepted my 2 weeks notice and let me work from home part-time even thought it feels like I quit. Feels really weird! Looks like I might have a made a sale today (from home) which is pretty cool. Need to find another job, put a bunch of resumes out this morning via email... I hope I get some responses. I have been sending out resumes over the last few months not a lot but some with no responses so I hope something comes up with the onces I've just sent. We are running out of money/savings so I need to find something quick!!

I forgot to put a patch on yesterday morning and went to see a friend of mine yesterday afternoon and smoked! Granted it was just one but still. I didn't put a patch on today since I didn't put one on yesterday and have been alright... I don't have any smokes laying around the house so that makes it easier.

I kind of have this feeling like I need to cry but can't... weird. I don't feel sad about anything imparticular so maybe I'm just stressed out. IDK

Planning to have a good day food intake wise. Might go workout tonight but don't know... have a business meeting networking thingy around 5 so we will see if I can make some time.
