This is the final straw...

Finally caught up with everyone's blogs! Now onto me my last weigh in post was on 7/17 showing me at 164.0 and this morning when I stepped on the scale it showed 170.0 so a gain of 6lbs in a month. I was way out of control. Ever since I got back from vacation it was so hard for me to get back on plan. I kept saying oh this weigh in I will start fresh well next weigh in I will start fresh. I finally sort of got into the swing of things then my birthday was coming up so I said to myself well I'll start after my birthday and then pretty much ate whatever. Then we went to California for a few days and so I told myself well when we get back I will start there are just too many distractions. Well that turned into a big FAIL this is the worst I have done throughout this entire journey. I'm actually quite embarrassed but I'm glad I caught it before it got WAY out of control. I got up weighed in and tracked it and started with eating this

 egg whites with cheese and spinach along with juice made in my juicer. Kale, carrots, spinach, 1apple, 1 orange, grapes, a few strawberries and a few blueberries. total of 10pts. My husband and I recently saw fat, sick, and nearly dead. Its a documentary on netflix about an overweight guy who juices all of his meals for 60days and pretty much gets down to a normal weight and it is completely followed by drs monitoring him and no one ever told him to stop doing it. It was pretty inspiring. Hubby wanted to try it for at least five days so we figured what not a better time to try it then now. It would be a nice reboot to get back on track we did it for two days and it was fairly easy. The evening got a little hard and we were always starving at dinner time but pretty content throughout the day. So today I decided I will pair a juice with breakfast, have a juice for lunch, and then a fruit juice mix along with dinner for the rest of the 5days. I pretty much did not work out at all the whole month I think I hit the gym mayyyybe
twice which is completely inexcusable. So tomorrow I will be there for Zumba. My life is about to get pretty hectic since I am going to be starting school but it also will be a complete routine until October when we got to vegas. (which is the day I want to be at goal which is still possible.)

Hubby is all in (with gainging) and I know I am (for losing) and I'm really looking forward to what the scale says next week losses on ww the first few weeks are always a bit larger. I'm going to stick with my daily points+ and try not to use too many weeklies. Also we are going to try our best to stop eating red meat. That will be easier for me but not so much for him. I love fish and I am going to make some tonight for din with some mango salsa I can't wait!!!! Also we are cutting out alcohol too. I am going to treat it just like I did when I started ww back in Dec. Never going out working out a lot and I always consistently lost weight then. I know what I need to do to do it and the only person stoping me from hitting my goal is myself. No more lazy.

I noticed that a lot of people have been saying they have been off plan and that they have been going downhill. If you would like to join me in my restart lets see who can go the longest (hopefully we all do the same time) with working out and eating right!! If all hold each other accountable we can go a lot farther in this journey!!!


  1. Glad to see your back on track. I noticed a lot of ppl besides me and you fell off too. I started again last week and got back down to my last WI weight so saturday I am hoping for a 2 lb or more loss. Hope you get on track and stay on there keep us updated.

  2. I totally fell off plan! Time for a reboot!

  3. I have fallen off too!! Time to start moving again!! Good luck! I know you can do this!

  4. This is why I believe in never taking a sound-eating vacation. A lot of folks--like me, I'm one of them--if they loosen the reins, have a really, really, really hard time getting back in the groove. There's good science-verified reasons for this--THE END OF OVEREATING addresses this--having to do with neural pathways, but it basically comes down eat on vacation in a sound way and you don't have to fight to get back on track when you get home.

    My sister, who stayed sleek and trim most of her life (size 2/4 most of her life, only got up to 12/14 in her sixties when lupus and her thyroid issues affected her), would cut back in the two weeks prior to a vacation just in case she did overeat, and then watch what she ate the weeks after. Me, if I loosen things I can easily binge. I can't do that. I can cut back to plan for a special event, like I did for my birthday (and lost weight that week). I just cut back a couple hundred or a hundred calories each of the days before so I could have an extra 400 calories to enjoy MORE good food (not bad food). :) An extra splurge.

    But, well, if I let go of control, I fear what would happen. I really do. I'm not one of those "easy to get back on the horse" types. Sigh.

    Let's all get that horse trotting in a good directions!

  5. Hey I just stumbled upon your blog! I am recently married too and was doing great before the wedding, after the honeymoon, I gained a bunch back, but I am back on track and trying to get my husband to join in also! Let's do this!
