Current Weight: 152.2 This Week: -1.6 Total: -93.6 YAY!  I lost weight this week!  Considering how much I’ve been struggling the past few weeks, I’m thrilled with a loss of 1.6.  I have 2 more pounds to go to get back to my lowest weight ever and 7.2 pounds to reach my ultimate goal. I don’t know why it’s been so tough to lose.  I’ve been trying to get back to my pre-Christmas weight for SIX …

Current Weight: 153.8 This Week: +1.2 Total: -92.0 Yep, there it is.  I gained this week.  I expected it.  You know how much I’ve been struggling the past few weeks.  I was dreading going to the meeting. I was just not in the mood.  My husband reminded me that I NEEDED the meeting.  He was right. The meeting topic was “Get happy!” and it totally worked for me!  At some point during the meeting, I …

I started a 30 Day Challenge for myself on May 19. You can read about my motivation in my Confessions of a Late Night Snacker post.  I’m late AGAIN posting my weekly recap, probably because I’m not exactly proud of my week AGAIN. Sigh.   CHALLENGE DETAILS: Only one PLANNED snack after dinner No eating in front of the TV Journal daily (privately or in FaceBook group) about feelings related to snacking I’m pretty sure …

Weekly Meal Plan ~ 06/08/15

In Weekly Meal Plans by Tanya2 Comments

This week I actually finished my meal plan BEFORE I did my grocery shopping.  Smart, huh?  Usually I have a general idea in my head of what I’m having but when I actually get my meal plan finalized, it seems like I’m always missing something!  That shouldn’t be an issue this week! If you want to save or print the meal plan for reference, just click the photo for the PDF version! BREAKFAST: Every breakfast …

Current Weight: 152.6 This Week: 0.0 Total: -93.2 I’m totally fine with maintaining this week. It seems like the more I try to restrict myself, the more I overdo it. I’ve been trying to watch my fruit intake. I’ve been trying to control my snacking more. I’ve been trying to limit my use of my weekly points. Ya know what? I think it’s just stressing me out which makes me want to eat more. When …

In Weekly Meal Plans by Tanya1 Comment

I was busy with meal prep on Sunday! I made 2 batches of spinach feta egg muffins, 12 breakfast sandwiches, 3 servings of pancakes, and 10 chicken stir fry kits all for the freezer. I also portioned out 18 servings of frozen berries & 10 servings of frozen mushrooms for future meals.  For dessert, I tried a recipe for a homemade Wendy’s frosty, but I wasn’t that impressed with it.  By the time I was done with …

Current Weight: 152.6 This Week: -3.0 Total:  -93.2 I am shocked that I lost 3 pounds this week! I gained 4.4 last week, so I expected some kind of loss. However, I’m really not proud of my week. I had several days of overeating and not tracking and mindless snacking. I also had 4 pretty good days. I guess it’s easier to focus on the negative because I feel like I didn’t earn this 3 …

Current Weight: 155.6 This Week: +4.4 Total:  -90.2 I was expecting this. You may have noticed that I didn’t weigh in last week, so this gain is for 2 weeks. Not going to the meeting last week was a big mistake. I should have known. I wasn’t feeling well and just wanted to relax. We went out to dinner. I ate an unhealthy meal at the restaurant, but that wasn’t the biggest issue. The biggest …

Confessions of a Late Night Snacker

In Struggles by Tanya3 Comments

I have always struggled with snacking in the evenings. I can do great all day with confidence and no temptation and then blow it after dinner. I had been doing better for a while but lately the old habits are creeping back in. I am hoping that by talking about it and sharing what I am going through, it will be easier to stop the behavior. Logically I know that eating doesn’t fix anything but …
