Haven't done well so far today as far as eating every meal or even the best.. although I don't think what I've had to eat has been terrible, like if I were to eat 5 candy bars in one day. I spent most of the morning on the phone, had a couple cups of coffee, and a couple cups of decaf tea (Chai and now Detox). Vic went ahead and made a pot of white beans which are to die for good and had some corn bread with hot peppers in it already made up in the freazor and pulled that out. So, I had a couple small bowls of beans with 2 small pieces of corn bread. What I am feeling quilty about mostly is that Vic cooked the beans with a ham bone (which I couldn't find in the ingredients list and went with the next best thing) which of course makes it taste better but adds fat to it. Oh, well... I don't think it's going to kill me!... I probably won't use all my points today and I have points saved up from the week that I haven't used. Darn it! I weighed myself today and am up 2 tenths of a pound from yesterday.

I was talking to a mentor of mine today and she reminded me that the fact that I just quit smoking may be also part of the reason I am not dropping truck loads of weight real fast. That when you quit smoking your metabolism changes or will slow down so that I've lost any weight at all I should be patting myself on the back. That I quit smoking I should be patting myself on the back. That I haven't gained any weight is cause for a pat on the back. So... I guess I will go ahead and pat myself on the back...lol.

Well, I just found this site and love it! Looks like a fantastic tool for keeping up with my weight loss and lifestyle change. 4 years ago I lost 30 pounds through Healthy Inspirations but I always felt hungry. This year I wanted to change my overall health habits so I quit smoking last week and started looking on the internet at different diets. My co-worked started to talk to me about weight watchers and I researched it all weekend long last weekend. (I am doing this on my own). I love it! I don't feel like I am on a diet but can already tell I've made some big changes. For meals, I've always done pretty good picking healthy things to eat (unless I didn't) but I would eat really small meals and tons and tons and tons of junk food (candy, cookies, cup cakes etc. it was so bad that we didn't always buy junk food because the rest of my family wouldn't get any... I would eat it all). I would usually eat small dinners and munch on junk food all night.

Being on weight watchers so far has been easy. I really like the fact that I can eat anything I want as long as I stay within my points. So far, I've done really good and I try to stay at the lower end of my range.

My husband, being a chef is also doing this with me and has really gotten into coming up with new recipes that work within our points. Every dinner we've had this week has been awesome!! Even my 13 year old has liked it!! That is a big deal.

Sunday 1/18/2008 will be the start of week 2... I am looking to drop 1-3 pounds a week. So far I've almost lost 2.. woo hoo!
