The frustration lives on.

Weight watchers is pissing me off again. I am not losing and it is just killing me to go and pay to weigh in. I am using the accurate number of points, drinking water, counting everything, and going to the gym. I am also up four pounds. I have been at ww for about 20 weeks now. I have fallen off the wagon a couple of times, nothing major but I have a total loss of 9lbs. For some reason I find that when I am off program I tend to lose a lb or 2 even though I am eating everything in sight. Maybe it is because I'm not thinking about food all the time. Maybe it is time to try something new? I think I am just worn out from counting points, in foods, left for the day, the week. What should I do? I guess the plan for now is to give ww two last weeks and if nothing changes then I'm done with points.

12 dollars

Well I weighed myself at home this morning and was down a little bit so I decided to pass up the weigh in and use the time to go to the gym instead. I do think that it would have been a great idea to just go tot he meeting (thanks Diet Coke and Zingers) but since I am a cheap bastard I figured I would save the $12. The more that I think about it I have realized that attending the meetings does help me stay motivated and positive. I probably should have gone but I feel really good about the workout that I got in instead.

Free Registration or Get Out of Jail Free card?

So this free registration thing is really great for those who want to give weigh watchers a try but for me it is kinda like a get out of jail free card. Since it is free registration it means that if I miss a week I don't have to pay for it. Even though I have been on plan all week I think that I have still not lost any more weight. That being the case I am thinking I might miss my meeting tomorrow. I hate paying to find out that once again I haven't lost any weight.
I am feeling a bit low about my lack of weight loss and I a trying really hard to not let it get me down. I am actually really proud of how I ate this week I had used up all my "bonus" points by valentines day and had to really stick to a small point budget for the rest of the week. I did stick to the plan but usually when I am low on points I just give up but not this week.
I'm on break this week YAY! even though I still have to work not having classes is a nice break and will allow me to schedule in the gym. I am hoping that going to the gym this week will get me in the groove to fit it in my school schedule as well. Ok. good luck to me!

Do you want an add?

Hey I just figured out how to add links to other blogs and if you would like to have one on my page leave a comment. I only ask that it is a weight loss, fitness, health tips or weight watchers type of blog.
I would also like to update that I weighed in after two or so weeks of not really paying attention to my points. I gained .4lb but I am ok with it. I am viewing this as a new week, a new starting point. So far so good.

Maybe tomorow I will...

Ok so maybe I fell off the ww wagon again and maybe it was for a couple weeks but really it was just not fully counting points but in the end I really haven't lost any weight. Or gained. It seems that every once and a while I get a little peeved at counting and writing and basically thinking about everything I put in my mouth. I do have to note that I have been eating pretty normally and not going completely overboard with junk. I think I just get really discouraged because I haven't lost any weight in a while...a long while. I really don't think that 16 weeks and 9 lbs evens out. I could quit. I would save money and get to eat junk. I'm NOT going to quit! I refuse to quit. I am back, I am on plan, and I am freaking committed. I weigh in tomorrow and I am using it as a starting weight instead of being irritated that it isn't any lower (it shouldn't be anyways) I am going ot except that number and move on. It is a new week. That is one thing that I love about ww, every week is a new week. Can you feel it? Yeh that is the first week on plan enthusiasm and I am going to use it for all it's worth. Yay, celery! yeah right.

I got it!!!

Yay I got my drivers license today! It snowed basically all day but slowed just around the time I took my test. I am so glad that I passed. I feel so accomplished to finally have done it. Thats all really. I plan to get back to the gym next week hopefully.

Points...what points?

So I've done it again, I got stressed and sick. I am soo focused on my driving test that I have completely avoided counting my points lately. My other excuse is that I have just been so busy/stressed with school and work which is normal but once you add the driving test to the mix I simply have no room to even think about counting points. Don't get me wrong I have been eating just as I usually do, nothing outrageously horrible. To top it all off I caught a stomach bug that has been circulating around the preschool that I work at.
It almost seems like the energy that I usually put towards counting points and exercise for that matter has been all used up thinking about being sick, school, and this damn driving test. So as all weight watchers members say at some point....I'll be back on plan tomorrow. In my case after my driving test tomorrow evening. I could get back on plan right NOW as I am realizing what I am doing. However I plan on eating a good dinner tonight and a planned out lunch tomorrow but I will start counting again on Friday. I also need to get back to my couch to 5k program again.
Please excuse all my excuses. At least I am accountable for them.

It's just driving...

So I am a 25yr old who doesn't have her license yet. Yet is the key word because on Thursday Feb 7 I will take my driving test. Don't get me wrong, I can drive. I have been driving for years with a permit but I just never got around to taking the final test.
Driving is really an exciting thing for me because it will allow me to become more independent especially in my weight loss. I will be able to drive to the gym and not have to rely on a "workout buddy" because you know they always give up a week in to the plan. I am sick of having to abandon my gym workout just because I can't get there. It may seem that I am just using the ride thing as an excuse but when my gym was a block away (it closed) I went almost everyday and sometimes even twice a day!
So think of me on Thursday and send me good driving vibes!
