This has been a really rough week!

This has been a really rough week for me. I've been so not OP except a few days. I've tried and tried and would get determined only to eat things that I knew I shouldn't be eating! It's been really hard, but I cannot let it get myself down. I need to go weigh tomorrow and suffer the scale truth and know that the only way I can respond is get myself back OP and get myself up and moving. I will not fail! I will not quit! This is a lifestyle change, not a do it for a little while, then go back to what I was doing before! I am not perfect and will have imperfect days and even weeks, but quitting is not an option. I will do this! I know I can do this with the help of my new friends on the WW boards, the 2009 WLC, and the Fabulous Fit Club.

I also need to make sure and stay on the computer visiting other blogs, the WW boards, the Fabulous Fit Club and working to help other people. I find that when I do that, then it helps me stay OP. We can all do this, and we will!

Rough Day Today!

Well, last night about 12:30 a.m. my son called from college crying. His girlfriend of over a year broke up with him. She told him she still loved him, but couldn't do the long distance thing anymore. She's in the Houston area, he's in Dallas. Today I can't get ahold of my son since he won't answer his phone, text messages, and he hasn't been on his facebook. I know he has classes, but I wish he would just say, hey, mom, I'm here and busy. It hurts so much when one of your children hurt and you can't be there to put your arms around him/her and give them a big hug and be there where they just cry on your shoulder. I know it will get better, but....

Right now I'm resisting the urge to go eat a candy bar (chocolate, of course). I'm such an emotional eater and my son hurting has got that candy bar calling my name! I know things will get better. It's just convincing my son they'll get better.

Saturday WI

After kind of a rough week, really bad toothache, now feeling yucky, I had a great WI. I lost 3.2 lbs for a total lost of 21.2 lbs. Wow! Sure makes me feel better to see the weight coming off. I'm just 3.8 lbs from losing my first 25 lbs. That's so exciting for me. I just wish I felt better. I hate cold and flu season because if it's around, I'm going to catch it!

Today's WI

Today was my WI day and I had a nice Valentine's day present. I had lost 2.8 lbs and received my 5% star. I was so excited. Now, onwards and downwards to lose 25 lbs. I'm only 7 pounds away from that goal, so I'll be working hard to get there. I definitely need to get back in to the swing of the exercise thing. I get bored so easily and even though I know it helps tremendously, I quit. I need to start using a little variety, maybe walk one day, use the recumbent bike the next, a DVD workout, etc. Maybe if I start doing it that way, I'll be less hit and miss and more go, go, go.

Hope everyone has a very happy Valentine's day!

Wow! It's been so long!

I just realized today that I hadn't blogged about anything in over a week. Wow! I've been so busy with work, I haven't even been able to read those blogs I'm following. I've also been really tired lately for some reason. I think my stress level is too high.

What do I want to talk about today? Well, I think I'll discuss those two servings of good oils I'm supposed to be getting in today. This has got to be the hardest thing to get in. No. 1, who wants to waste 2 points on oil? Not me! We discussed this in my WW meeting on Saturday. I didn't realize how very important it is, though, either. I was informed that it helps deter hair loss, dry skin, constipation. No wonder my hair is so thin! I don't think I've ever gotten in those good oils. The other two, yeah, I have to deal with that, too. Not fun!

So, my goal for the week is to get in two servings of "good" oils every day. So far so good, but the olive oil I have just tastes yucky. Does anyone know any oils that taste good? I added this olive oil I have to my oatmeal yesterday, and it just didn't taste good. Today I added it to my oatmeal, along with applesauce. The applesauce helped tremendously! I'm making taco soup for dinner tonight, so I'll probably add it to my bowl of soup and see if I can handle it that way.

Anyone have any ideas?
