Weight Loss Ticker

so i've decided to be more accountable for what i'm eating/drinking. mainly bc i'm maintaining and not losing any weight and also because it's about damn time. lately i'll guestimate points, count 3 huge spoonfuls of ice cream as 1 point, when it's probably 2+, count a *full* glass of wine as 2 pts...knowing that its probably more. whats the point of it? why do i think lying to myself is going to produce any kind of change. there is no point. i've watched laura lose weight every week, and it's motivated me to get my act together! i need to drop 1-2 lbs a week too! she uses sparkpeople. i have an account so i signed back in today and i'm already at 17 out of 20 total points (i convert to WW points myself). and its 6:30 at night. puts things into perspective.

but i'm on track, every point is accounted for an i even measured out what 4oz (2pts worth) of wine looks like and its not as much. not nearly as much as im used to having. gonna limit myself to one regular size, unlike the 2 super size i'll indulge in. got to the gym today and did 35 mins on the elliptical and 30 mins of weights. finished "bitter is the new black" and i think i might read jen lancaster's next book "bright lights, big ass" - i like her style of writing. any other good books you all recommend.

oh! and to challenge myself even more, i'm going to try to stay on WW even throughout my out of town trip to chicago. normally i have the "eat what i want" on vacation mentality. but i just don't want to. i'm coming up with a plan of attack, scheduled cheats, exercise to do, etc. i'll let you know what i decide. any vacation tips?

alright, off to watch some tivo-ed bridezillas. love that show! :)

sounds like a great plan of attack!

I drink wine now out of a port glass. It holds 2 oz and then I can have two glasses! Silly, I know, but it works, and surprisingly, it now takes me as long to drink one 2 oz glass as it used to when I had 10oz in my glass!!

I'm jumping on the accountability bandwagon right along with you. Who are we kidding? We are only lying to ourselves!
