Thank you!

Thank you so much for the advice!! Right now I'm going to stick with what I am doing, stay very strict on my meal plan during the week and then relaxing a little on the weekend. I am going to NOT indulge SOO much on the weekend though like I have been the past few weekends. I have basically been maintaining my weight and not losing anything. I think during the week I probably lose a lb or two because I always feel so amazing on Friday and Saturday but then I end up blowing it on the weekend and basically eat my FACE OFF!

I didn't even realise how much I had eaten last weekend until I stopped over at my sister's place tonight and I listed it all off to or her. It was so spaced out though on the weekend that I didn't even notice. It's amazing how much JUNK we can eat and still justify it. Everything I ate last weekend (and there was A LOT of sugary greasy things) was totally justified in my mind because ...hey it was the weekend, I had done good ALL week, I deserved a treat (or 2 or 3 or 17) I need to get out of that mind set. I need to control myself better on the weekends

This weekend Scott and I are doing Rally for Hope on Saturday so I should be pretty occupied for most of the day and not thinking about food. They are providing lunch though in the form of a BBQ so that has me slightly worried but I'm just going to go, have fun and make the best choices I can make. Saturday night we are heading out on a date with some friends to dinner and a movie so I know I will be saving myself for that! (What a great idea you guys had about using the point system on the weekend and my meal plan during the week, I think that is a fabulous idea!!)

On another note, I FOUND MY SEXY JEANS!! You ladies ALL know what I'm talking about. Those dressy sexy jeans that make you feel hotter than hell! They are a dark wash and I found them at Bluenotes (Thrifty's). I was a little confused about the sizing because I am so used to shopping at Suzy Shier and stores that run 5,7,9,11,13 etc. These jeans were a 29...I'm not really sure what size that would translate too but there seemed to be a lot of size 26, and 25 and 27 on the table so maybe I don't want to know.....At least I feel great in them!! I will have to get a picture of me in them to add to my Before and After stack!

That's it for me ladies! Sarah and Ann...I love the talky blogs so much, I'm trying to work up the nerve to join in!!


  1. Yes!! You must do one!!

    The weekends are so hard to be on track. Just do the best you can, don't beat yourself up, and get back on track during the week.

    WoooHooo for sexy jeans!! :)

  2. Your Favourite sister and nieceJune 13, 2007 at 5:28 a.m.

    You forgot to tell everyone you bought a house!!!!
    Size 29?? That is tiny! 29 is like a 7 or 8!!!! I was a 29 when I first met ANdrew... It all went down hill from there.. hahahha
    Congrats on everything!!!!!
    Your fav sis and niece!

  3. Sounds like you have a great plan, hopefully you can start seeing some losses again like you'd like too :) But at least maintaining is good

    As far as my menus, really I just take all the recipes I used pre-WW's and lighten them up a bit (and of course, control the portion size!). I love to try and cook new things, I hate eating the same thing over and over again :)

  4. I can't wait to see the jeans...I need a pair of those!!

    Where are your before and after pictures? I'd love to see them. YOu look so amazing now.

    Keep up the great work!

  5. i am the exact same way, i am perfect during the week and then when the weekend rolls around i eat crap and drink lots of beer. i'm trying to save all my flex points for the weekend but i'm just maintaining. i need to knock some sense into myself!

  6. Im another one who has a hard time through the weekend but I keep trying to tell myself what does that food really do for me and do I really want to add all that fat into my new sexy body that Ive worked so hard for?!

    For the jeans thats fabulous I think thats how large your waist is if Im not mistaking so not bad at all.

    Oh and for the code thing Im not sure exactly which one you are talking about is it the counter?? or something else and Ill be happy to help!

  7. Yay! I'm glad you've found something that you think will work out for you. I struggle so much on the weekends. It is SOOOO hard to say "no" when someone is offering to take you out to a restaurant.

  8. ah sexy jeans... been a long time since i've seen those! ;o)

    maybe set aside one meal on the weekends where you can splurge a little more. that way - you can say "ok, saturday we're going to dinner and i know i'll be eating more" you know, like talking yourself down from that small piece of cake or something... works for me! :)

  9. Yay for the sexy jeans!!! You totally deserve them - you should feel amazing for all your efforts to date.

    And personally, I think a a few "planned" splurges on the weekend are fine - you're enjoying life, afterall. I think after all your success, you should enjoy a few treats in moderation without feeling guilty.

    Yay for the jeans again!!!!
