Heather also has a website http://www.thewwchick.com/, she has a newsletter, recipes, tips, etc. Can you tell I'm excited?
Whether you follow WW's or are just doing your own thing, Heather's blog is worth checking out!
I've been tracking my calories for the last few days and I don't think I've been eating enough. This is the part of dieting that I hate. I get to a point where food makes me nervous. That I will eat too much so instead I eat to little. Gaahhhh. I guess my weigh-in Saturday will tell if I need to add more food.
Happy Saturday bloggers. Turn up the music and dance while you're cleaning house! Don't forget to have some fruit and drink your water!

After having a big loss last week I was not expecting to lose much this week. Well, the bike rides have been worth it. I lost 3.2 lbs this week! I'm so excited! I've proven to myself that making a plan and sticking to it really is the answer.
And you know what, I don't feel like I'm missing a thing. It's just food. I'm more interested in exploring new things. Things that my fat self hasn't been able to do. Things I didn't think a fat person should do. I have a long way to go but I feel strong. The support I get from blogging here is priceless. I can't say thanks enough, really.
I rode today. When I started out it was sprinkling a little and then all of a sudden, the rain stopped and I rode for 38 minutes. During the first 15 minutes I felt like my legs had weights on them. It just made me pedal harder. The rest of the time just flew by and I was done.
We're going out to dinner for my son's b-day - our favorite, Mexican food. I have a plan to eat slowly. Take a few chips from the bowl and break them into smaller chips and that's all for me from the bowl. Then meal-wise I plan to eat half whatever is on my plate. We will have cake when we get home. My mom made him a great chocolate cake w/choc icing. It's been sitting on the bar in it's glass case. I'll have a tiny piece with very little icing. And a big mug of coffee. It's looking like a great day to celebrate!
Hugs and kisses! If you have a chocolate, savor it, then drink your water!
Today is Valentine's Day. It's also my baby boy's birthday. He's not a baby anymore though, he's 25! My munchkin is such a grown-up. He's all a mom could ever want in a son if I say so myself! I do miss the days when we used to catch lizards and build "forts" out of sheets. Anyway, I love him to pieces!
The last couple of days have been the same diet-wise. Sticking to my plan, riding my bike. It rained again today so I did the Leslie Sansone Walking DVD. Worked up quite a sweat just tromping around in the den. Missed riding. I think I'm addicted. Wait, did I just say that?!
I hope you have a perfectly sweet day. Oh, and don't forget to drink your water!

Finally. We got some rain in Houston last night. It even rained in my neighborhood. The rain was much needed but the timing was not to my liking. 20 minutes into my bike ride the wind picked up and raindrops started pelting away. I'm not afraid of a little rain so I rode for 5 more minutes but the wind was too gusty for comfort. So I headed home.
It rained during the night and I heard on the news a lot of people got hit with some really rough weather. Hope all are safe. It's sunny today and feeling crisp outside. Can't wait to get out and ride this afternoon. This is the kind of day I wish I had an outdoor job. I feel like when I was in school and used to sit and daydream out the window...
This week I've been fighting the feeling that I'll give up ship and fail again at losing weight. After my post yesterday, I got some really great support. Thank you, blogger pals, for zeroing in and offering pearls of wisdom and food for thought (the diet kind). I feel so blessed to have you guys as my life line. (I've linked each item on my list to the blog of the blogger that left me a comment yesterday, except for #4 which is linked to zenhabits.net) Here's the plan:
- Banish the fear
- Love the highs and work through the lows
- Think in abundance, not in lack
- Shine light on the dark areas of my life
- Keep my eye on the prize
- Keep blogging
- Defend my new lifestyle fiercely
- Keep doing what I'm doing
Have a great hump-day and don't forget to drink your water!

And today I was right back to eating according to my plan. I'm tweaking it a little because as we all know diets can get complicated what with all the planning and recipes, etc. I'm keeping it simple this week. Sometimes I have to take the focus off the food because it leads to overeating. Less on the menu gives me less anxiety.
