Skinny Bread

I just took a regular loaf of bread (a bakery style loaf) and sliced the bread super thing. The sandwich was a million times better than with those expensive lite or lo-carb breads. Loved it!

Those breads are so expensive and since I have 29pts a day, I was using regular 100% whole wheat bread. Two sandwiches = 6pts just for bread! This was only 3 pts for delicious white bread.

Just wanted to share.

Also on the sandwich is Quorn roast (so delicious, you'd never know it was vegetarian and its 1pt for 90grams!), low fat American Cheese, yellow mustard and tomato. Yum.

More weight lost

Two weeks ago it was .7lbs, which had me kind of bummed. Hubs tried to cheer me up; a loss is a loss.

This past weekend I couldn't wait until Sunday so I weighed first that Saturday morning and it was a flat 0!

Well, that'll teach me to be impatient. I weighed again Sunday ant it was 2.2! I think that puts me around 13lbs down.

My inlaws said I look thinner and while hubs and I were snuggling on the couch, he said I felt different.

As for me - I'm not thin my any stretch of the imagination and really I didn't know how fat I looked until I saw a video clip from my graduation. So really, I am back to what I thought I was all the long...

I am feeling good though, like this could be it, this could be THE time I actually carry it through to the end and lost real weight. If I bust out of the 220's, it will be phenomenal - like no woman's land - at least not for the past 4 years.

Gym Nudity

So I have been going to gym for a few weeks and I am amazed by how casual some people can be about nudity. I know it's a locker room but my modesty (embarrassment) does not check itself at the door. I also don't understand how people can eschew the private shower stalls in favor of the group shower!

I am not grossed out; I'm impressed. I wish I could just walk around naked and not care. I wish I was that comfortable. Maybe it comes with age (the over 50 crowd seem totally ok with it) or something.

I've worked up to taking off my t-shirt and standing there in sports bra and shorts while getting my shower stuff together. Everything else is series of acrobatics involving holding my towel and undressing/dressing. Skirts are eat to get into ;)

Pretty Face

I know fat girls love hearing they have a pretty face.

But, it's different when it's you yourself saying it. I was just looking in the mirror and although I didn't have my glasses on (and maybe because I didn't have my glasses on - both because of the glasses themselves and also less imperfections show up) I looked at my face and thought, "I look pretty pretty today." It was a good feeling. I think I can see that I've lost weight in my face. Could that be after not even 10lbs?

In other good news, Angie from Angie All The Way sent me an e-mail and I feel so special.

Weigh In Week Two

So I am counting this past week as week two of consecutive consistent commitment.

I lost less than 2lbs. I was pretty bummed, because that it was I would hope for with diet alone, but I am working out for an hour a day burning 650 calories and not eating more food to make up for them. I am eating the WW pts allowed for a sedentary women my size. Maybe I should eat more of my points? My SIL said her group, people said they did better when they ate all their points and their flex points. I sometimes come in 2 or 3 points under - all last week I did.

Anyway, 1.8lbs was sad but my husband was very encouraging. He was proud of the loss. I guess it is exciting to only be 10 lbs away from beating my weight loss efforts in recent history. When I had my dieting kick last year, I got down to 221. Here's to blasting through that.

I think the lowest I ever weighed in in the 1.5 years I have had my Wii Fit is 219.

Here's to record breaking!
