Set backs and Nomsters

So yesterday I had a *huge* setback. i went out to lunch with my mother and my food choices were not spectacular but not heinous either. However of the 4 hours out with my mom my daughter was eating for at least 3 of them. Let me backtrack to the beginning.

My husband has to be at work by 4 pm, which means that we have to leave by 3:30pm. I was running a little late so we left at 3:35. Now you have to understand that my husband *hates* being late. However as I was walking out the door he had me run back in the house for gas money. So we had to get gas. Not a huge deal he leaves a little wiggle room but he's getting tense and blames me for leaving late. We go to hop onto 95 where there is a bunch of construction and there's an accident in the construction zone. So he starts to flip out blaming me. I offer him a piece of chocolate to make him feel better. STOP! As he was eating it I realized that I was enabling eating to fix emotional problems. BAD! but at least I realized it. I call his job (because he's driving) and let them know he's running late. So when we finally get there I call my mom and let her know I'm on my way.

I pick my mom up. We stop and get gas and then I pull over and feed Loey for an hour. Then I put her back in the car seat where she screams a bit as we drive to Applebees. We get inside and sit down and I feed her some more. I get part way through the appetizer (spinach artichoke dip) when she decides she's not happy with the situation at all and loses it. I get to have a couple bites of my lunch (3 cheese chicken penne). So I leave and set up in the car to feed her. My mom finishes her drink and pays and gets everything boxed up. This was about another half an hour of feeding. So I get her quiet and we go to Walgreens. By the time we reach Walgreens (only 5 min away) She's screaming again! So I feed her while my mom goes inside. My mom's inside for another hour and a half. She comes back out and my daughter is still eating! She goes back inside and I ask for a diet soda and A piece of chocolate. She brings out 2 OF EACH reeses cups, caramel eggs and cadbury mini egg packs. I was so frazzled at that point I ate 1 of each.

I drop my mom off and feed the baby some more till she finally fell asleep. (She is totally going through a growth spurt). I didn't have the energy to cook so we ended up eating McDonald's. I ended up with -14 weekly points. Go me.

Daily Points Plus: 55, Weekly:46, Activity: 5, Used: 157

Return of the vanishing Fattie!

Ok, so I've been gone for a while. I got pregnant. I'm aware that the world doesn't stop when that happens. I was busy though. In the beginning of my pregnancy I was still in school. During that time I was also diagnosed with anemia and gestational diabetes. I had to readjust what I ate (again) and I was put on insulin. This meant that I had to go twice a week for ultra sounds plus my regular appointments not to mention feeling run down. All that being said my wonderful daughter has made her appearance in this world (as of Jan 20th). She is healthy and beautiful. Now I have to continue working on making myself healthy and beautiful!

I've started weight watchers with Scarlet Simple again. Wish us luck!

Ok So...

I know I've been gone for a really long time. I've been having a hard time with the "diet". I lost almost 35 lb and then just fell. So my goal is to sign up for Weight Watchers and go at least once a month. I don't want to lose my progress. As someone once said "You don't want to lose everything that you've gained." Part of it is that I'm not living with Scarlet Simple anymore. I'm not blaming her but it was easier for me when I was accountable to someone. That's why despite my lack of funds I want to start going to the meetings.

I can do this!

Day 51

Starting Points - 32 daily + 24 weekly

So Wed I ran around and spent time with my mom. My mom is handicapped and I do all of the work for her. I shop for her and take her to her Dr. Appointments. Sometimes I forget that it's fun to spend time with her because almost all the interaction I had with her is taking care of her. I'm really sad that I lost sight of that. Well Wed I actually got to spend time with her, We had dinner (she had chinese and I had a low point sub from subway!) We watched my life in ruins which was much better than I was expecting. I made some Halloween cards and we talked a lot. It was a really good night and I want to make sure to repeat it.

Super sexy sandwhich made by my husband - 6
1/2 cup Apple Cider - 1
6" Oven roasted chicken sub - 6
6" Oven roasted chicken sub - 6
Barbie Cup - 6

A leave of absence

I know I stopped posting. I'm mad at myself for it actually. Since I stopped posting on Blogger I've done so much worse. I've continued to lose but less than a pound a week. Since I've stopped showing people I didn't have to be as good. Well that stops. I'm going to post and I'm going to share my ups and downs because that helps me to stay on track and I want this. So I'm back baby!
