Updates


I’ve got a bunch to talk about today, so I’m going for the bullet list…

  • I made Baileys brownies yesterday!  They are SO good.  I had one for dessert last night and then another one for breakfast thismorning.  Worth EVERY calorie, and they were shockingly easy to make!  Next time I’m going to try making them with butterscotch schnapps instead of Baileys…

    Another Baileys brownie.

  • I had a little bit of a bummer over the weekend.  Most of my pants are WAY too big now, and for some reason I had myself convinced I was going to fit into a size 12.  I don’t know why, since all of my too big pants were 16s… but when I went to the store and tried them on, all of the 12s were (logically) too small.  It put me into a funk for a little while, until I thought about the fact that I was wearing super tight 18s in December.  I did get a new pair of pants (a 14) and they are both comfortable and flattering.  It helped me to remember that number are NOT everything.
  • I’ve been shifting my eating habits a little bit lately.  On top of doing what I can to incorporate more fruits and vegetables, I’ve also been trying to pay more attention to what I want and what makes me feel good.  Although I am still counting Weight Watchers points, I am also adjusting my intake a little bit.  For instance, if I’ve eaten all of my allowed points for the day but still feel hungry I’m happily adding more food.  I think it’s a step toward getting away from the counting/measuring/weighing for good… though I’m not anywhere near abandoning points just yet.  Right now it’s working, so I’m sticking with it.
  • As of Saturday, I’m officially down 30 pounds.  I’ve added a list of mini-goals to the right-hand sidebar now, and the next one is at 40 pounds, since at that point I will have lost exactly half of what I want to lose.
  • I’ve also been updating the food journal, so check it out on the Food Journal tab if you want to know what I’m eating lately.
  • There’s a great giveaway for a Lands End bathing suit going on a the Sisterhood!
