It's Billy's fault!

So I am not to blame for the lack of blog posts.

Billy is. No really!

He has been bugging me for weeks to play this new game he discovered, Minecraft.

Well I finally gave it a try the other day. Needless to say, I am addicted. I haven't done much other than eat, sleep and play!

I do have photos of all the food I have eaten, I just haven't done anything with them.

Sorry! But I will try to get back into it asap.

It is insane how fast those 0 point foods can add up. I was really tempted to use those 5 remaining points and go way over my calorie intake tonight. My monthly visitor is on it's way and I REALLY want cheese and crackers! haha Oh well.....

New jeans and stuff!

Summer is almost over and Autumn is on its way, with Winter at it's heels. Soon I will be donning jeans and boots and coats and scarves. When I thought about it, I realised I have NO jeans that fit me any more! I have a pair I bought a few weeks ago at Target on clearance but there is a good reason they were on clearance, they are not that nice. Not flattering at all. They kind of sag around my butt and don't have any shape.

So today Billy & I headed to Goodwill, just in hopes that there might be something there to hold me over until I got closer to goal. I hate spending money on "in-between clothes". Clothes that will only fit me for a short time. But sadly I tried on a bunch and even though I was happy to say most of the ones that fit were 10's (Aus 12-14) they were just not right. There wasn't really a lot to choose from that were even decent. I think women find good jeans and hang on to them forever! I know I would!

I did however find this very cute dress. It is a little small for me at the moment but next Summer it will fit me perfectly! I couldn't find a size on it but at a guess it's about an 8 Aus (10-12) roughly. I think it's so cute! Billy thought so too when he saw it.

Anyway, we had to pick up some stuff for dinner so I suggested we hit Walmart is it was like 1 block from where we were. Billy was hungry and wanted McDonald's so we went in there first and I ate 5 of his nuggets then left to go have a quick look at their jeans so a) I wouldn't eat any more and b) Billy didn't have to clothes shop with me! Lol!

I found a few pairs to try on and I found a pair I actually liked! I was shocked cause normally I don't really like Walmart Jeans. I used to get them from their when I was big but they were more for practicality over fashion.

Excuse the Batman shirt! Lol! It's actually a small mens t-shirt that I found on sale years ago and was never able to wear it until now and I was so happy to fit into it I wore it today! I am a nerd.

Anyway I really like these jeans. Although when I see my butt it tells me I really need to work on that and lift it up!

Snacks 13/09

So of course I was hungry not long after my dinner of salad and decided to have a 0 point apple.

Then a little while later I was still hungry so I decided to dip into my Weekly Points and have the rest of my Le Petite Creme cheese with some crackers.

IMG_3476

Total - 9 points.

I swore I would try extremely hard to track everything and blog it on here. So there might be more "additional" posts like this. But I will try to post just before I go to bed to save too many posts at once.

Weekly remaining points - 40

Weigh-in 13/09

Photobucket

I know I keep saying this, but seriously I did not expect a loss this week. I didn't track for like 3 days and I am pretty sure I went over my weeklies. But I lost a pound and got under the 160lb mark. I am ECSTATIC!

I have lost 41.6lb with Weight Watchers and add another 10lb I lost last year. Over 50lbs gone. 

Insane!

I suddenly realised today I need to get some nice, flattering jeans. I got some cheap at Target recently but the cut is not that nice, sure they are fine for a trip to the grocery store maybe, but they don't give me any kind of shape. 

What sucks is I don't want to spend too much money on them because in a few months they will most likely be too big.

Maybe I need to hit up Goodwill!

Breakfast:

Normally on Tuesday we hit up Starbucks and get coffee and a bacon & egg sandwich to share, but they didn't have any of them left! Boooo! So we just got coffees

1 x Starbucks Skinny Caramel latte - 3 points / 130 calories


Lunch:

I was STARVING by the time we got finished at Trader Joe's and Target and I wanted something yummy and filling so we went to a place called ENoodles which is like a Chinese/Thai type restaurant and I got Shrimp Lo Mein. I was thinking it wouldn't be too bad points wise. Sadly I was wrong! It was hard to know the exact points but I over estimated just in case.

Shrimp Lo Mein - 25 points

Dinner:

Seeming I had 1 point left for dinner I made a big bowl of salad with 1 point of Thai Peanut Salad dressing.

So I learnt a valuable lesson today. I need a back up plan for food when we are out and about. Now I could have gone to Chick-fil-a but I am soooo sick of eating there!

Weigh-in 06/09

Photobucket

40.6 pounds! oooohhh yeah baby! That's 18.5kg! Plus I lost 10lb before I joined Weight Watchers so that's 50lb and 22.5kg!

You have no idea how happy I am right now. I am a third of my way from my goal weight and I am feeling fantastic. I fit into clothes I have NEVER been able to wear since buying them. I can shop in the normal section of the store now. 

It's great!

There are 15 weeks until Christmas so I wonder if I can lose at least 10lb by then. To be 150lb at Christmas time would be SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET!

Hope everyone else is having a great week!

Another light eating day. There were tornado warnings and storms all day and I was just too stressed to eat lunch and I always have a light dinner the night before weigh-in. If this doesn't give me a good number I will kill someone! Lol!
