Very, very sorry for not posting lately. Had my surgery and life just got in the way. Had a relapse and ended up making bad food decisions as well as started drinking soda again. Needless to say, things didn't turn out so well. I didn't gain all I lost back but I gained about half of it. Ugh!
<------ See him? Umm yeah that's Jimmy Thomas in case you were wondering. I know he has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss but gah the man is so sexy. He's also a romance book cover model. His handsome face (and smoking hot body) has graced over 1,200 book covers. *sigh* Just thought I'd share him with you lol He always put a smile on my face when I see his photo.
Ok back on track. Several years ago I joined Weight Watchers and had success with it. I lost over 30 pounds. Before my surgery I was eating healthy, drinking all water with the exception of a glass a milk twice a day. To be honest eating that way was healthy but I didn't seem satisfied at the end of the day. I somehow felt deprived. Anyway, I think that was the problem with my binge eating while recovering after my surgery.
With that said, I have decided to join Weight Watchers again. I will continue to work out with my trainer and do my cardio as well but wanted help with the eating issues. On Weight Watchers I can pretty much eat anything I want but I have to stay within my daily point values. I think this will be much easier for me to stick with. I joined the Weight Watchers Online since I don't have time to go to meetings every week. It costs around $20.00 a month and you get access to all their tools and such.
Moving on....I recently discovered Hungry Girl. Have you heard of her? Here's her website if you want to check her out. http://www.hungry-girl.com/ She has several recipe books out and is appearing on The Food Network during the month of May. Maybe longer. I'm not quite sure on that. You can find out more information by visiting her website.
Her newest cook book is 300 under 300. I purchased it over the weekend. While I did find a handful of recipes that I think I would enjoy, the majority of them had ingredients I don't even eat. Most of which don't even sound good. But if you like things like eggplant, ground beef-style soy crumbles etc then you might want to check her book out.
That's all for now. Here's the damage I managed to do while out after surgery.
Starting weight: 210 lb
Last week: 192.2 lb
This week: 199.4 lb
It's depressing I know. I'm ashamed to say I've gained the weight back (half of it anyway) but on the bright side, I am back on track and hoping to be able to stick with it. Have a great rest of the week.
