Motivation Wax On, Wax Off

254.8  Tottering forward, one baby step at a time.  I don’t have a day that I don’t dip into my Weekly WW Points pool but I have lost 5 lbs in 4 weeks, though it only seems to be about half a pound a week at the moment.

I ate the daily WW points allotment today and was starving by tonight even though I ate vegies, fruits, lean meat, yadda yadda yadda.  I just ate 16 points of homemade popcorn (1/8  cup butter and oil combo and 1/2 cup popcorn) washed down with a NA beer and I feel 100% better.  I am craving carbs and I feel that if I deprive myself I am way more likely to fail in the end.

The big step forward is that  I measured the oil and popcorn and figured out how much I was eating.   Also, it was a minimally processed food made from scratch that did not come in a bag with a long list of ingredients.  I had an air popper at one point but honestly the popcorn tasted like poo (cardboard actually, stale and tasteless).  The old school stove top popcorn tastes pretty awesome but not so greasy that it is really bad like the stuff you get at the movies.

Really the big thing I need to move forward on is the exercise piece.  Making excuses not going to the gym.  Tomorrow. I. Will. Go.

I have been watching the MTV show I Used to Be Fat and it is pretty inspiring.
