BRAGGING RIGHTS


Sheesh!  I sure wish there WAS a finish line to being thinner.  It obviously has to be a life time way of eating (and drinking).  

Weight Watchers works for me.  Despite the fact that I still fit into the earrings I wore in high school ... nothing else was fitting.  Except X-large light weight Maui sweats ... actually Fresh Produce capris and v-neck t-shirts.  The other big reason is my health!  I want to live many, many years in Maui and not have to cramp my kids' style and live with them forever.

My eating routine is LOW point breakfast, usually fruit and coffee.  Low point lunch ... today was a chopped hard boiled egg on 2 pt English muffin with lots of tomato.  So I can have a decent dinner when eating with the family.  I made my own spaghetti sauce with soy crumbles and whole mushrooms instead of meatballs.  One cup of pasta and tonight I'm adding spiralized zucchini as more "noodles".  I always add a huge salad so the plate looks full.

It's interesting to socialize but I try to choose wisely and not make a big production.  One glass of bubble whatever (less points for more ounces than wine ... and people assume I'm celebrating!!).  

Cheer me on!  It's working!  Because I'm working at it.

  1. Wouldn't it be nice if we didn't need to work on it? There are just too many tempting thing around us and calling our names. Good for you for sticking with Weight Watchers!

    1. Yes. Wouldn't it be nice if eating healthy was my FIRST choice? Down another pound last week. And bravo for making myself paddle around in the pool twice last week! Slowly ...

  2. I'm surprised you two didn't lose weight when the hubbies died. No one to cook for. Well, you do like to cook and you both like to socialize with meals out, so maybe that is why. I have gone from a bit too plump to looking like an Auschwitz survivor--especially my arms and legs. There seems to be no happy middle ground. My daughter Karen had great luck on WW. I used it five years ago and it worked great--while I used it, LOL..

    1. I AM an emotional eater ... good or bad, happy or sad. I just love snacking! Now I force myself to choose an apple first ... if I'm still hungry after that, I can choose something again. But the apple takes the edge off ...
