I found this article at L-Jay Health & it is something that I have been thinking about for a while actually, especially since I’ve upped my use of these.
“A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.”

I was really on point this week! I ended the week with eleven of my weekly points allowance left over & 32 activity points racked up. Hurray for me! At my weigh-in last night I had lost 2.2lbs. Hurray for me again! That leaves me just another 4.6lbs to got to meet my first 10% loss.
But as good as the loss is, I’m keeping my focusing on the NSVs (Non-Scale Victories). I can control what I eat & what I do. The scale however I have no control over. Why yes, I am mentally preparing myself for a bounce next week. Hopefully it won’t happen, but historically it has been a big issue. But I’m going to keep making healthy(er) food choices & enjoying my exercise regardless. Screw you numbers on a scale:~p You can not defeat me! Continue reading
I have failed over & over in my life, & that is why I succeed.

So, I had a not so good week. If you’ve read any of my posts this week you know I found out last Friday a friend of mine, who had been ill for some time, took a turn for the worse. Went into a bit of a panic & binged over the weekend. It didn’t help I made brownies Sunday, even if they were Hungry Girl brownies. Wednesday afternoon, she passed away.
I rehash this here, just to say I ate through all my points, even my activity points. I actually ate into negative points for the week, & had to make sure I went out Wednesday to earn some more activity points & balance it out, lol. Though, what I can proudly say is, even though I still have occasional binges, they are not near what they were. I call that a win! Continue reading

So last week was pretty much a bust. I did nothing around the house, went nowhere socially, & didn’t call anyone. I did text & email a few people though, which is good. I spent the week locked in by snow & ice, & the couple of times I did get out I went for fast food & soda. Being cooped up led me to feel extra stressed & mopey, & loading up on fat, salt, caffeine, & sugar didn’t help anything. I definitely feel better & deal better when I eat healthier & drink enough water. And get regular sleep. Continue reading
“Weather is a great metaphor for life – sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, and there’s nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.”

Let me just say I’ve been pretty much useless this week. I haven’t been able to get out of the house all week & so I’ve sat around working on this blog, setting up a Twitter, & generally farting around online. I did manage to get in three days of exercise though, & I tracked every day faithfully. I went over points on three days, but still ended the week with plenty of weekly points left & never had to touch my activity points. I’m claiming that as a success! Continue reading

So, I had a good week I am proud to report! The last Weight Watchers meeting I had attended was before Christmas, so it had been three weeks. I had also not tracked or exercised much, or mostly at all, in that time, & had eaten out a lot; so naturally I was nervous. But I was also hopeful. I felt thinner. That’s gotta count for something, right? I had gained 1.6 pounds at the last weigh-in, so I was doubly hoping for a loss this time; at least enough to balance out what I had gained.
