No Whining Zone

First of all, I want to thank everyone for your kind words and support regarding my last several posts.  I have not been happy with myself, my food choices and certainly not my result from Saturday’s Weight Watchers weigh in .  It was very distressing and frustrating and has my mind going in circles to figure out what went wrong.  I think I need to stop wasting my energy trying to find out what happened and just move on.  I mentioned that if I gain anymore I will have to pay.  My friend Zo suggested that since I identified that as the line in the sand that I will not cross, then I know what to do.  She’s right and the more I think about it, that’s all I need to remember.

In fact a few years ago, prior to starting BCDC, I was over goal and I was paying each week.  I realized all the money I was wasting.  I tallied up what I had paid to that point during the time I was over goal.  I wrote that total on the front of my WW membership card.  Each week, I wrote what I paid and added it to the total.  When I actually saw what it was costing me, I got myself on track and before long, I was free again.

That’s what I’m going to keep in mind this week-that total, which I don’t remember at the moment but it was in the area of $500.00!  I’m not spending one more penny on this.  I know what has to be done and I WILL do it!

I started the day with a good breakfast in order to feel on track.

A very tasty egg sandwich with sriracha sauce.  I love making these and Ralph enjoys when I do.  Counts for 5 Points and is very filling.  I resisted putting cheese on it as I think I’ve decided that cheese is one of my problems.  Breaks my heart but I’m going to have to be very careful of cheese.  I can’t give it up altogether, but I need to Beware.

I toyed with the idea of posting what all of my Points are for my various meals, but decided against it.  I think it might be a little boring for all of you who are not WW members.  I’ll continue as I have…sharing the Points when I think something is an especially good Points value.  Tracking will be crucial though, so I’ll be writing EVERYTHING!

But I do prefer to be positive rather than negative.  I think I’ve been throwing out too many negative comments lately.  I don’t want that to continue.  So from now on…

 

Happy Monday!!

  1. fran, good for you. we all get down on ourselves from time to time, but it is such a refreshing feeling when we realize it, decide to turn the boat around, and focus on the positives in our lives!!
    i find money a motivator, too. keep a smile on your face and have a great monday – i like mondays because it’s the first day of a fresh and new week!!

  2. A spanking fresh day/week is a great thing!
    I made egg sandwiches today too ;)

  3. I love egg sandwiches with sriracha! Glad it’s so point friendly. Cheese is so hard. And nuts…You can do it though!

    • Stacie, cheese and nuts are two of my hardest things. I gave up chips completely because I couldn’t deal with them…they always got me into trouble. It’s been 18 months since I gave them up. Obviously, they would still be a problem since I’m still calculating!

  4. Sounds like you have a goal and a plan! The best way to make something happen. And that egg sandwich DOES look good. Sriracha+egg=magic.

  5. Happy Monday! I’m glad my advice struck a chord.
    Mr. sc and I finally bought a bottle of sriracha after hearing from a number of people how good it is…and we love it. Constantly finding more stuff to put it in.

  6. Who needs cheese when you have sriracha sauce? :-)
