Hi ladies! My weekend was so off from what I planned!!! Saturday night I ended up drinking which I didn't plan at all, and I had 3 or 4 light beers! I was already at my points for the day when I started =(

Yesterday I had plans for the restaurant we were going to for lunch BUT we got there and it was closed for rennovations! So we went to another chinese place, but it was all "american" chinese stuff and not the really traditional food. WELL I went to the bathroom when we got there and got back to the table and found out that my MIL just ordered the buffet for everyone. I was so ticked because she is on WW too, and so is my FIL. Apparently they didn't care yesterday. So I stopped the waiter and asked for some egg drop soup as well. It filled me up a bit before I hit the buffet. On top of greasy fried stuff int he buffet, I am allergic to fish and I don't eat red meat so there was more than one reason I DID NOT want to eat the buffet. I had 2 things (a little chicken and broccoli and a little of the rice stick) for the main meal and a couple of the desserts. SO I ended up doing well.

Then I went to my parents and my mom had made dessert (!!!!!) but it was 100% whole wheat gingerbread (only 2 points per serving!) and so I had some with some frozen yogurt. I also had some cucumber and tomato while I was there to get in some veggies. So it was GREAT until I got home and was STARVING at 8:30. I ended up having a toasted pita bread with hummus, some turkey pepperoni and some light cheese. All that stuff at 8:30 was in my extra points which I did NOT want to dip into. I ende dup with 8 extra points left for the week.

Normally I wouldnt be so upset but I woke up on Sunday morning and TOM had arrived! And I felt crampy all day and horrible. SO I weighed myself this morning and after having apparently lost 1.5 pounds this week, after the beer Saturday night and TOM, I am now UP by .8! I'm hoping I can drink lots of water this morning to undo some of the bloating before weigh in tonight. Wish me luck!!!

The best part of Sunday actually was seeing my nephew (4) and niece (3) and SIL and BIL since I hadn't seen them in 2 months and I missed them like CRAZY. My SIL is like a best friend, and I LOVE my niece and nephew. They were all over me! It was sweet, and I realize that I have to go up there soon to see them again for more than an hour or so.

Wow that was long!!! How was everyone else's weekend???

Hey Lori
I finally got around to seeing your ink and it’s amazing. I love the kois.

For Mother’s Day my sister and I took my mother to a Mediterranean restaurant called Ayhan's Shish Kebab. My sister ordered us the all you can eat buffet. Like you I was disappointed in her for ordering me that. But I later I as happy to find out that all I could eat was one plate. I didn’t even make it to the hot food. With small potions of food like couscous and grape leaves and don’t forget hummus I was in heaven. It is no wonder Mediterranean people are so thin, their food is so fulling. I also had two mimosas so I was feeling great lol.

Hey gals! Went to WI last night and I was down 1.2! I was shocked, since I thought I would stay the same. I drank my water like crazy yesterday to undo the bloating I was feeling and I guess it worked! :)

Donna - Your buffet sounds like it was much better than mine!

Kier - last time I traveled I stayed at one of those places that had a fridge, microwave, sink, and a mini stove top. That was great because I cooked just about everything!

Last Saturday night, for my Mom's day with my Mom we went to a tavern style restaurant. Of course, the appetizers kill me. Instead, I ordered Caesar salad for my entree with dressing on the side. When the salad came, of course, the dressing was mixed in. My mom was like, "Just take it. Don't send it back," but I sent it back. My husband said, "well your going to put the dressing on it anyways." So, when it came back, I used the "fork" method like I had planned. And when I was done (I only ate half of the salad) I leaned over to him and pointed out how much dressing I actually ate compared to what they gave me. They just give you soo much!

My hubby gave me a great pair of tennis shoes for mother's day to get me started back walking again. He said they were made for me because they are pink and that is my fave color. I'm blessed to have such a great supporter. I wish my other family was not so toxic and dramatic. My mom has been a size 6 all her life and it just kills her to have a daughter who is an 18/20. Its like she can't let it go. But when I lost weight last year, she, I swear tried to sabatoge me by calling me names, pinching my butt, and offering to take me out for pizza. Anyone have this problem?

Hey Law Mom
I found this with A lot of my naturally thin friends. They don't understand how hard it is. and Also I hate to say it they don't want the competition!
One of my gfs who lives far away asks me every time I talk to her How much I weigh now. And My gf who was a bit skinner than me initially is now trying to lose so she is not the fattest in our group. She's also tried to sabotage me!
You are worth the effort to stand up for yourself and what you want!

Thanks! That's so sweet.

To think of "friends" and family trying to sabotage makes my heart hurt. Why are we, as women, so critical and devisive to each other? God says "Encourage one another, and build each other up." I've made my goal next week to do better in this area.

Lawschoolmom: some people just feel threatened by other's success... I wonder if they think we're going to change on the inside because we changed on the outside who knows?

Kierie: Great job you're doing!!

Anyway, I went to an preventative medicine specialist and he put me on a plan which is essentially like WW, I think I need to mix it up a bit for a while... I just wasn't feeling motivated on WW (it's temporary, I still think WW is great though), but I feel motivated on this.
