Eid Al-Adha at Home, on Weight Watchers 

Eid mubarak to those who are celebrating today.   Today we had a tiny Eid celebration with just my husband, myself, and my daughter. The big family gathering is tomorrow at a restaurant, then back here for cake and tea. Luckily my husband recently started Weight Watchers as well, so he didn’t mind that I […]

Just the Foods, Ma’am

Today’s breakfast was a turkey BLT with a raspberry tea, 15 Weight Watchers Points Plus.   2 caramels for a mid morning snack, 4 Points Plus.  And for lunch, 3 inches of leftover tuna sub, plus an apple, 6 Points Plus.    In the afternoon I did my arm, butt, and thigh challenges and got […]

Caramel, Maple, Meat

Ok, I’m not sure what is happening this week, but I keep getting startled every time I catch a side view of myself in the mirror. There has been a really sudden belly reduction! It’s in the region between the waist and hips, so not a place I measure, but who needs a measuring tape […]

The Day I Broke Up With an Old Comfort Food / C25k Day 4

Today’s breakfast was a turkey B.L.T. from the deli, 12 Points Plus.   With a side of important info: Lunch was a can of Annie’s cheesy ravioli with one cookie. O-n-e, one, 11 Points Plus. Just kidding, I had a second one. 2 Points Plus   I’ve been worrying about how I’m going to fit C25k in […]

C25k Week One, Day 3

Hi, guys! A quick Luna bar breakfast, 5 Points Plus, then it was time for some exercise. C25k day 3 went incredibly well. The chimes indicating that I should switch from jogging back to running seemed to come very quickly. I think I’ll actually be ready to start week 2 on Tuesday. I felt so […]

It fit!

I was extra hungry at breakfast. Two mini pitas with tons of hummus, 12 Points Plus.    I’ve had some Honest teas in the house staring me down since before I started Weight Watchers.  I’ve been avoiding them because they’re sweetened with sugar but today I found out that a raspberry one is only 3 […]

Behaving Myself

So, after my slight gain at weigh in I decided to be a little more reasonable with the food today. I know, I know, it’s a crazy concept, but bear with me. Breakfast was a turkey blt, 12 Points Plus.    After that I did week one, day 2 of C25k.  I’d call it a […]

I’m So Fat That I Can Eat Like This and Still Lose Weight…So Yay?

I was not feeling well today and I was super hungry. Long story short, I had the points and I used them. Breakfast: mini pita with hummus and peaches canned in juice, drained, 5 Points Plus    Midmorning: Kind bar w/ vanilla yogurt, 10 Points Plus    For lunch I had some homemade white turkey […]

C25k Day One…and I Enjoyed It?

Something huge and strange happened today. I did Couch to 5k day one, and I actually enjoyed it. This is the third time I’ve attempted C25k in years gone by and the other times were a huge struggle, I hated that voice that told me to start running, and my ankles and calves were swollen to […]


I had a big non scale victory today. I sat on the hard floor and played jacks with my daughter. It has been so long since I’ve been able to sit on the floor comfortably, or even without my feet falling asleep. Today, the way I was sitting wasn’t on my mind; I was just […]
