Let's play a game!

Anyone ready? It's called

"Why do you keep doing this to yourself?"

Okay, so why do I continue to eat the M&M's, even though I know it is only going to make the scale go up?

Why do I keep putting food in my mouth, when it doesn't even taste that great and I am not really hungry?

Why is that Halloween candy in your office?

Why is it, that you can't seem to get back on track, no matter how hard you try?

Why do you stop recording your points after lunch?

Why is it, that I know I am bored/lonely/sad/frustrated/depressed that I continue to eat when i know it will only lead to more of the above emotions which will continue the cycle?

Okay, enough to answer them. Right now, I honestly don't know. I had the control for a while and now it seems to have slipped away. It is frustrating (and no, I am not currently stuffing my face, although I would like to). Ugggggggggggggggggggggggg!!!!!!!

I hate this! So why do I keep doing it to myself?

I really don't know how I did it. I expect next week to be a reality check, but I am going to do my best to keep the points low and the exercise points high...

Sigh...Slow and steady.

I. Can't. Stop. Eating.

I have very little else to say. TOM came for a visit, I haven't been able to stop eating all week and tomorrow is WI. Nervous some?

Yep. I did pack up a great healthy lunch for tomorrow. Have the points ready to go. DH left yesterday for a week so I am single parenting it. To all those who do this on a regular basis...I bow down to you.

Wish me luck tomorrow.

Me so..............h...

HUNGRY! geez...where did you think I was going with that? Okay, so maybe that is just my twisted mind. I know I am not near as funny as I think I am, but hey, as long as the voice in my head says it works then I will go with it!

So anyway, I am hungry. Not sure what the deal is. The only thing I can think of is my body is readjusting to my time zone and so the body is requesting more power? Well, it sounds good anyway.

I LOVED DC. It was really neat, although we had such little time. I took a night tour of all the monuments and then did a tour of Arlington as well. So amazing. That little area has so much freakin history. The class was good too, although I am now even more concerned about how to get my entire job done all in a 40 hr work week. Sigh.

I tried to work out today. Really. I had changed my clothes and walked down to get a government drivers license and was going to be on my way. However, the guy in line before me had a ton of things to add to his and it took about 45 minutes. So no work out. At least I walked down to the office. I got a couple of 10 minute walks in so that has to count for something.

Well, my boring self is falling asleep, and if you made it this far you must have drank some caffeine late in the day! Have a wonderful evening!

Watch out Washington!

I am here! I landed last night, took a tour with an old friend and went to her house for dinner. I managed to eat less than my points during my travel day (how does that happen?) and started today well. I did some snacking, but I chalk that up to boredom and have a plan to fix that tomorrow I am just a hop, skip and a jump away from Crystal City mall.

Coolness. We are waiting to meet up with some members of our group so we can walk somewhere nice for dinner.

Hope you all are well. I missed WI, but that can't be helped. Plan on staying on so I see something next week regardless of the travel!

Losing points

You know, I have watched the show the biggest loser and I get so jealous when they are shown having lost 13 lbs a week. Okay, I am not as big as some of them, but I am pretty close to some as well and I have never in my entire life lost 13 lbs in one week. I am sure, that the amount of work that is required is crazy too...
I would love to do it tho. Just to get rid of this fat. I have come to terms with losing just 1 lb a week average. It comes off so slow, but I have somehow managed to not give up. No matter if I have small breaks or gains I am still losing and am lower than I have been in a long time.

Okay, so that is just the thoughts I had going thru my head. Now, on to losing points. It has been about 2 months since I lost the last one. So, that is approx 10 lbs in 2 months. Sad but at least it is gone. Okay, sorry, enough about being a slow loser (not sore). So, I lost a point and quite honestly don't miss it. Dh asked me the other day if it is hard and I said "sometimes." I guess b/c sometimes it is, but since I have been eating so well and exercising, it is not the top priority. Plus, I have come up with some low point lunches and breakfast so that when dinner comes around it is a little hard to eat all that is left. Which is good b/c I am a night time snacker and have had to come up with ways to battle this.

I see this post is completly rambling so I will stop now. It was just what I was thinking of. Sorry to bore you...if you are still awake after reading this!
