Weigh in + Weekend Food Logs

Saturday's weigh in results...

Down another 1.6--woohoo! Just another pound until I hit 25 pounds lost and I get a manicure! Hopefully I'll get there in the next week or two, but I'm really trying not to assign any sort of time limit on it because for me that almost never works.

I actually exercised twice on Saturday--we walked to our favorite playground with the kids (it's fairly small, well-maintained, and fenced-in!) which is about 1.5 miles round-trip, and then I also went to the gym and rode the bike for 30 minutes during their nap time. It felt good!

My eating wasn't too crazy over the weekend...

I used to pretty much blow all my weekly points on the weekend, and just make sure to stay within my daily points during the week; however, I've learned that's not really the best way to do things week after week, and I think that's what caused my weight to yo-yo so much when I first started WW.

I deliberately did NOTHING on Mother's Day, except lay around and read. When I grew tired of laying around at home, I went to Starbucks and read some more (there's one near me that has a really nice patio with comfy couches to sit on; it's my favorite place to read and enjoy the weather).  I enjoy reading purely for entertainment, and lately I've found some fun (and ridiculous) YA fiction series. I like them because they're entertaining and very easy reads; I don't have to concentrate much to stay with the story. (Don't get me wrong, I read my share of adult fiction too--YA is my guilty pleasure, lol). The Kindle Lending Library and the free books are cheap, easy ways for me to get my fix.

On a side note, yesterday was my 1-year anniversary with WW; I've been working on a post for the last week to commemorate the occasion, but it's still just not ready. I'm hoping I'll be able to finish it tonight.


  1. Congratulations on being so close to your 25lb mark. Your Mother's day sounds divine! Happy Mother's day to you (albeit belated)! Thanks for posting your food logs. Are you mostly vegetarian? I notice that occasionally you have some meat, but in this post it was all vegetarian food. I am vegetarian, and it is so rare to find other WL/Food bloggers who are my size who eat mostly/all vegetarian.

    1. Thanks! I don't go out of my way to eat vegetarian--I do love meat!--but I try to make several meatless meals during the week, mostly for budget reasons. I actually didn't even realize I had a meatless weekend until you mentioned it! :)

  2. Great job on the loss! I never do well when I set a goal date either... Too much pressure or something.


Hi, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'd love to hear from you!
