Emotional Eatng

Yesterday prompted the return of emotional eating! I had a not so great day at school and came home to a couple of beers and a container of chocolate covered almonds. Man did they taste good! I think that most people who struggle with their weight have had this problem and I have seen that a lot of people combat this problem with working out. The activity and the energy helps to relieve the stress of the day. For me... I haven't gotten there yet and for some reason I'm still turning to food. Don't know why! I need to find a way to make the switch:)

There was a light at the end of the tunnel though... after the binge, we went out to dinner and I made an awesome choice of a turkey burger and a HUGE side salad. Seriously this thing was the biggest "side" salad I had ever had. What was great about it was that there was hardly any cheese or croutons, something that restaurants really load up on. I think the whole salad including cheese, croutons, and my tiny bit of dressing was only 3 points! Yay for salads!

Ok, my stomach is telling me it's time for breakfast...
Enjoy the day!

Weigh day!

Down .4 it may seem like a little but it's not!! I'm about 4 pounds away from my 5 lb mini purse goal! The purse is already purchased and hopefully my mom is taking good care of it. Which probably means she's using it!

My two poor WW friends and I are meeting again tonight for dinner. We are each preparing a course, mine is a side dish. I think I'm going to make roast cauliflower and brussel sprouts. I love those two vegetables, we'll see if my friends do too!

Well, while I wait for my new cell phone to arrive in the mail, I'm going to experiment with a new cake mix I found at Big Lots:

It recieved good reviews and I'm planning to make a pumkin/chocolate cake cookie with the mix. We shall see how it works!
Happy Monday!

Hoping for a change...

I think motivation is the hardest part about weight loss. We get going well and then things change... why can't they change for the good instead of the downhill change! I'm hoping that having friends to meet with each week and discuss our goals and tips will really help us to keep our changes on the up-swing.

I really want to get used to smart choices forever, instead of smart choices for a while:)

I also have another motivation in my weightloss... purses! I'm addicted and I've decided that my next five pound loss will be a new purse... I've just spent 15 minutes trying to find the picture online and I can't! Grr! Well, once I loose my 5lbs, I'll take a picture of it on my shoulder!

Have a happy week!

I am trying to be productive! I can't seem to concentrate when all I can think of is finishing the last Harry Potter! Soon it will be finished and I shall be hard working again!

I've been doing great this week (It is only Monday!) with food and choices. I'm happy to have a couple of people at work who are supportive and also on WW. I'm trying to get a friend of mine to join on line so we can have our own meetings for the poor WW folk (don't tell!). I need a set time and place to meet and talk about stuff. I think it'll make me work harder.

I thought I'd share a goofy picutre of Timmy and I dressed in our Halloween costumes... here it is:

Aren't we the goofiest tourists ever!

Well, off to see what Harry Potter's up to...

Happy Halloween!

Here we go again...

It happens every Monday, or at least every Monday in the past month... I step on the scale and the weight I lost on Wednesday is back because I can't control myself on the weekends!! Anne, stop the madness!!!

In happy news... I went home to Cleveland this weekend and was so happy to see my family and the kiddos. I can't believe how big the little ones are getting and how talkative! It just makes me miss them even more when I see them for a little bit:( Better get to work earning money for my Sonic Jet that will get me to Cleveland in 5 minutes! One awesome thing that happened this weekend was all the compliments I got about my weight loss. It's a nice little pat on the back and a confirmation that I've been working hard at this.., do I sound snobbish... sorry! Gotta love my family cause they make me feel good... except the my Aunt Julie decided to pinch my "little butt" as she said... if you know my family you know that those things happen!

Ok... off to a fun day of workshops, woohoo:)
Happy Monday!

Weigh Day!

Down 3.9 pounds!! It's actually just the .9 because last week I gained the three I lost the week before, but I'm happy with it!! I'm almost in the 170's!! Don't think I've ever been there before! I want to go buy some new clothes but I'm not so much toned up yet, so I'm afraid to buy pants and stuff... I might take a trip to Target today and get some tops. I need something to wear to my big sis Martha's baby shower this weekend!

Tim has an interview today and one phone interview set up... I hope he gets something! He worked hard for his degree and I think he's bummed that he can't use it. Something will come up I know it.

I've been trying to keep up with my goals... the only thing that changed was that now I can't walk at school because beginning band started last week. The good thing is that my friend Jena joined Weight Watchers and we have set up a walking schedule after school! So there's my new goal!

Have a great Hump Day!
