Happy Hump Day!

I know I've said this so many times but it's amazing what one good OP day can do for your confidence! I feel so in control and I am loving the freedom that WW gives you! I am doing great and I am beyond motivated! I am going to get these last 15 lbs off before I even know it.

When I weighed in on Monday I was pretty shocked at the number. It hasn't been that high in a while. Then I though back to all the junk I ate at the drive in the night before (Peanut M & Ms, Swedish berries, onion rings, Smartfood popcorn AND a chocolate bar all in the course of 6 hours!!) No wonder my weigh in was so high on Monday morning. My body was bogged down with all that awful junk food. I'm very excited to use my flex points because it gives me something to look forward to all week and my splurges will now be controlled. No going over points for me! No Way! My motivation has also transferred over to my hubby so it's great to have someone help me along the way.

For some odd reason, I really don't know why, I have been petrified about posting my weight on this blog. For some reason I just didn't want anyone to know how much I weighed. It scared the hell out of me. But for some reason now, I feel like I should post my weight, I just feel like it will hold me more accountable and it will only motivate me more to get this last 15 lbs off. So here it comes....I'm announcing my weight to the world, or at least my blog buddies........(deeeeeeeep breath)................


Ok That wasn't sooo bad. I weigh 159. 159. 159.
In May at my lowest I was 150.5 so I need to get back down there and pronto. I am hoping to see 2 lbs come off my Friday but that is asking quite a bit so I will be happy with 1 or 1.5. Usually your first week back on the plan, you tend to lose a little more.

I did buy my mini trampoline yesterday at lunch and spent a good chunk of time last night putting it together so tonight will be my first workout on it. I found one online and I plan on following that for the first week or so. I've done some reading online and apparently the trampoline is great for toning your legs and butt. I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes.

Today at lunch I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few things for the weekend. My Mom is down from Ontario this weekend and I haven't seen her in almost 4 months so I am really looking forward to spending some quality time with her and to show her my new house!! I picked up some Weight Watchers Whole Wheat Wraps. Anyone tried these ones? They are new to my grocery store so I thought I would give them a go.

That's it for me today. Except a little recap of BB8 last night. I missed the Biggest Loser Recap last night as it was on the same time as BB8! I couldn't believe how mad Jessica was at Eric. I really hope she doesn't go home on Thursday but it is a double eviction night so anything could happen. I wonder why they haven't shown the jury house? Hmmm....


  1. Yeah for being OP! Feels good doesn't it?!

  2. I'm rooting for you! We're in a similar weight range with similar weight goals - we can egg each other on!

    Congrats on staying OP!

  3. 159 isn't that bad, i'm .4 pounds heavier than you right now... i'm shooting for 150 too - let's do it!!! :o)

  4. I've been wondering why they haven't shown the house either.

    I think Jess is going tomorrow. I didn't like her at first, but now I do, so I am kinda bummed.

    Can't wait to see how the trampoline works out. I've never thought about it, but that would be fun to do while watching tv!

    So I am so glad you are joining the 3 day photo food challenge with me. Have you started taking pictures yet? If not you still have 4 days left. And yes you can post them on Monday. :)

  5. i'm back!! i am finally ready to be accountable again. i think i was hiding from posting because 1. i had nothing to say as far as eating healthy, because i wasnt 2. i wasn't getting my exercise in and felt guilty about that and 3. i didnt want to reveal that i've gained 3 lbs in like 3 weeks. yikes! oh well, back on track, at least until the weekend. lol. but at least i dont have any big events planned like i have lately.

    smartfood's so addictive, you can't take just one handful. so yummy. my boyfriend and i split the small bag on car trips bc i can't control myself with the big one.

    i think jessica is going home tonight, just from what i've read on blogs. what is with the double eviction though! wow! that's going to be interesting. i dont' want jessica to go but it's time to shake the game up again. i like the way ED/daniele play the game. and daniele is definitely the strongest player i think.

    alright time to eat a healthy breakfast and happy to be doing so!! thanks for checking in with me and i will be a better blogger, i need to drop this weight i've been gaining lately!!

    p.s. posting your weight definitely keeps you accountable...i feel guilty when i have to change my sidebar and up my weight. maybe thats why i've been avoiding doing so!! haha

  6. I'm quite pissed that they aren't showing the jury house!! That was one of my favourite parts! I must say, the segment with Eric mimicking E.D. actually made me throw up! Yikes!

    I know what you mean about weights. I do believe though, that if you can get over the #, that it will really go a long way to helping with long term success. I'm 161.3. There. I said it too!!

  7. Hi Carolyn, Caught your message on Randi's blog. The 3 of us can post lots of Blue Menu stuff. Who needs Trader Joe when we have the PC President watching out for us.
