Points hang over

I have a points hang over, ugh. This weekend was awful for me points wise. I won’t bore you with the details but I went way over. Out of my 35 freebie points for the week I have 9 left. I’d been trying to ration them out.

One problem is not having very many healthy food choices on hand at home. I’m going to the grocery store tonight to buy things like vegetables (I’m getting as many frozen as I can because fresh just go bad too quickly for me), fruit, plain non fat yogurt, brown rice and whole wheat pasta.

I’m also trying to do a dinner menu plan for the week. I’m super excited about the recipe for Old Fashioned Chicken Pot Pie from the Weight Watchers Weekly leaflet for┬álast week (January 10-16). My husband loves chicken pot pie so I’m hoping this healthy one will satisfy him. I’m about to go on a google search for WW points friendly recipes using ground beef since we have 3 pounds already in the freezer.

I think I’ve decided on a goal weight of 115 pounds. I’m 4′11 so a healthy weight would be 104-124. I know I once weighed 110 in high school but I don’t even remember what weighing that was like. Like, what size would that be? Was I really that thin? What happened? I am almost scared of thinking of a goal weight because I am so afraid of failure. Maybe that is what I need to use to push myself though-the determination to not fail.

About Me

Aww, my very first weight loss blog post. How exciting!

A little bit about me: I’m 26, married and just had my first baby October 28th, 2009. I’ve struggled on and off with my weight for a while now. I needed to lose weight BEFORE I got pregnant. While pregnant I went over 200 pounds but I couldn’t tell you an exact number because I quit looking at the scale about a month before I delivered. After the baby though I dropped about 30 pounds right off. I think it was a combo of stress and just not eating. I’m now at 156 which is pretty much my pre-baby weight. I’ve joined Weight Watchers to help me get to my goal weight which is at least 125. I’m only 4′11 so once I get there I may keep going to 115 which was my high school weight.

I love blogging and tweeting because of all the interesting people I’ve met online. I hope to meet even more during my weight loss journey.
