Hey pretty girls! I have read all your emails and some of you are really doing very great! Keep that up!
Faye, that’s AWESOME you walked to church! If your weather was like ours yesterday – it would have been a nice time to be out and soak up Mother Nature.
Sharon, it’s total Carbs, Total Fat, Protein and Dietery Fiber. I love my WW app on my phone!
Claudia, congratulations for being away from home and staying OP – that’s a huge NSV in itself. Was this a weight you were at for a while on your way up? I wonder if that’s not my problem since Christmas. I “think” this is the weight I was when Elizabeth was born. They say that can be a contributing factor to your hanging on to THIS weight.
Connie, my daughter’s colors are navy blue and silver. I just got my shoes at Penney’s – they’re like my “glass slippers” – have a clear acrylic base and then glittery silver strappy things on top. A friend of mine got an eggplant Alex Evening dress similar to mine (although short bolero jacket and it gathers over to the side and slit up the leg) but it’s very similar – -same rhinestones around the jacket front. The fabric on these dresses lays really nice and the sizes seem to be true (which in itself is a miracle!)
Mary, after your post I felt I should be singing “hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to WW we go… ” LOL But YES!
Rebecca – you can make it through this week. After all, one of these comes every year so bet you’ll take a WW dish to all those “dish to pass” functions. No? By the way, if you like “flavors”, get your water in via the Crystal Lights or other flavored zero calorie drinks. I also buy that “Tru Orange/Lime/Lemon” packets and use 1-2 in a huge glass of water for an additional flavor. Good plan on beefing up the exercise! You can do this!
Shawn, corn dogs aren’t that awful point-wise, no sauces on them, etc. Every once in a while I get REALLY hungry for those and have to have one. I’ve found that SOME lemon shake-up vendors will do them with artificial sweetners! I fix those for myself at home a lot – - diet sweetener, of course.
Dianne, that’s AWESOME you’re down in the low 160′s. WOO HOO! Girls, (for those that are new) way back in 2010, there was Dianne, myself and Victoria – we called ourselves the “3 Muskateers” as we had all joined about the same time, were neck and neck weight-wise (all hoping to reach ONEDERLAND together) and Dianne was always in the rear. Well, she caught up, went ahead and MILES ahead of both of us. Victoria is FINALLY pregnant at the moment (Congrats to her!). So Dianne has been the bright shining STAR of this trio – I’m so proud of her (and envious!)
Chris, sounds like you’ve identified where you could make some changes and are planning for the week ahead. GOOD for you girl! You can do this. For the past months, I’ve been living the “if you sort of do it, it sort of works” plan which is NOT where I want to be either. By the way, the Crystal Light slushies sound good! I best get my blender out and on the cupboard again! What about red/white/blue veggie sticks, cherry tomatoes, kohlrabi and drawing a blank on the blue! How about white peaches instead of the marsh-mellows? Green grapes? (CLOSE?) Maybe I need to get a Ninja . my blender takes up so much room and is a pain to use.
Kelley, when I’m using my WW scanner on my phone and it’s a Hyvee brand, I quickly check the back of the name brand and compare and usually it’s the SAME stats so I just scan the name brand, get the points from that and then buy the HyVee brand. What I NEED to do though is carry a sharpie marker with me and when I identify the WW points, write it on right then and there!
Gotta head out to work and won’t be at a computer ’til tonight… working with volunteers this morning on our newsletter and then have Dr. appt for mother. Later!
