Hey girl!

Yeah she is mean, but I'm not gonna let her bring me down. While stewing on it a little, I thought you know what letting her upset me like that gives her power over me and I refuse to do that... So I'm letting it go.

I'm feeling a little better today. Still having some coughing spells but I can breath better. Today is my last day off work, I go back tomorrow and work all weekend and all week next week. So today is my last rest day. But I do have to get out to go do some grocery shopping this morning.

While I have been off work the last few days, I have been doing some thinking. I brought up to the people in the office at work the ideal of us having a weight loss contest this summer. They seemed to like the ideal and my boss even said he would come up with a cajun name for our group. I hope the others at work will join in.

Hey Meg, I'm feeling better this morning. I'm also headed back to work. I work the next 8 days.

I got on the scale this morning and I have gained 2 lbs, I suspect the steroids are causing me to gain. Because I haven't gone off plan.

My menu for today

B- special K cereal and skim milk
Sn- banana
L- smart ones spaghetti
Sn- watermelon
Supper- baked chicken breast dipped in BBQ sauce and carrots
Desert- WW ice cream

Sorry to hear about your Mom. Glad they did the stent and I hope she will be good as new now! The best thing about the stent is the recovery from it is easier than a bypass...I was back to work in 2 weeks and I had 4! My prayers are with her and you.

Nikki I am sorry to hear this has happened to your Mom. I know how you feel not being able to be there. I remember when I was pregnant with my 2 year old. My Mom had a heart attack and they flew her to a hospital just down the street from where I was and I couldn't be there. Keeping your Mom in prayers.

Thanks ladies!

Seems like I'm wanting to snack all the time, even when I'm not really hungry. I guess it is still effect of the stress from what was going on with my mom. Anyway I'm trying to get that under control.

I have lost 109 lbs in 11 months. 11 months ago when I gave WW PP a try I never dreamed I would be where I am today. I had done LC on and off for so many years and I believed it was the right way. I was mad at myself for not being strong enough to keep at it. So my mom talked me into giving WW a try. I'm so glad I did because it works for me! So I just want people to know that you can eat healthy carbs and still lose weight.

Nikki I was feeling a few weeks ago before I got into ww +. I was so afraid to try a new "diet" because if seemed like there was no way I could lose eating the good carbs. It truly does work. I am just getting into it but I have watched you transform into a very strong and amazing woman. You are an inspiration to so many. Keep your chin up and the snacking will go away. Stress is a killer for me on the snacking. That is how I gained so much wait back in such a short amount of time.

Nikki- indeed I too agree that you can eat healthy carbs and lose weight, I dont like eliminating whole food groups, like seriousy an orange or apple here and there is not what made me 350 pounds. I might look into WW PP.. See where I could go wrong is the snacky stuff, like fiber one bars, cheetos, baked lays, crispy salty things is where I lack control!

If you look at your menu you are eating well below 2000 calories and as long as your fats and carbs are not both high the weight loss works.

You have done an amazing job with your weight and as Reva said I can see your new found confidence emerge, it is a great show to watch!!! Beating a weight problem has got to be the most rewarding thing we do for ourselves!

Thanks Amber! You are a big inspiration to me!! I agree I have to be careful not to over do it on the baked chips. When I buy them, the first thing I do when I get home is break them down into the 100 cal snack size baggies. That way I don't eat more then I should.

My menu for today

B- 1 cup special K cereal and skim milk
Sn- banana
Lunch- small grilled chicken salad
Sn- watermelon
Supper- left over BBQ chicken breast from last night and some broccoli and cheese
Dessert- mini WW ice cream cone

Nikki your menu looks yummy. I have only bought the small bags of baked lays from Subway. There is no way I am ready to have a big bag laying around. I am afraid if I even broke them down that I would cave and dig into the other baggies too. I am awful when it comes to portion control.

Nikki,
I'm a lurker in your journal most times but just wanted to say how great I think you are doing. So happy for you!

A weight loss contest at work is such a great idea. At our workplace we are doing a pedometer challenge and it's really motivating me to move alot more than I normally do. I work from home so it's more of a challenge for me than some people in the office but what I really like about it is that we are working in teams and getting to know each other better and supporting each other in our goals.

Have a great day!

Hi Laura! Thanks for posting ... The pedometer challenge sounds like a good idea. Do you have a set goal of steps for the day or week?

Reva, when my mom had her heart attack and I was very stressed I ate almost 3 100 cal bags.

I have been craving pizza so I'm making chicken pizza tonight. I'm putting chicken, mushrooms, tomatoes, red onions and 2% cheese. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

Sounds very tasty! What kind of crust are you using? Sadly I could probably sit down and eat a whole big bag of baked lays.

It's Mama Mary's Thin crust, points wise the crust cut into 6 each slice is 3 points. Once I added my toppings I figured it at 8 points for a slice. It was very yummy!!
