Waving the White Flag

I’ve known for a long time that I need consistency and structure to my eating.  When I choose to celebrate and have a “normal” weekend of not watching, I severely fail.  So, I’ve thrown in the white flag and went back and joined Weight Watchers new Points Plus.  The points per day were a little alarming to me (seemed to be a lot), but what the heck, I’ve had success before on Weight Watchers, so I’ll give it a try, it’s got to be better than what I’ve been doing, right?



Hey, Take a Look At Yourself For a Change!

I have had some realizations over this long, never ending eating weekend.  First of all, I did get on the scale yesterday morning and shock of shocks, was about 15 pounds less than I expected to be.  I’m not sure if that is because I was semi-watching earlier in the fall or whether I just expected to be REALLY heavy.  Either way, I’ll take it and it makes a starting point a lot easier.

In my last post, I said I didn’t set resolutions and that’s true – I have, however, set a few goals for myself.  I have a son graduating from high school in June, and I’d like to look nice by then and feel comfortable in my own skin.  That gives me a point of which to aim for.  While I have a number in my head, I am going to concentrate on 10 pound increments and feeling good.

    1 chopped red pepper (sauteed with onion)
    1 10 oz. box of spinach (also sauteed)

    Heat oven to 450 and bake for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 375 for an additional 30 minutes. During the last 15 mins. add approximately 2 C of sharp cheddar cheese.

    This will yield approximately 6 large pieces, amounting to around 110 calories per piece.

    Failure is merely a perception; with each effort, we get the ability to start over again.
