Future MILF Weigh-In: New Commitment, Week 2

Lots of drama in our house this week, normally that would have meant lots of comfort eating. This week I kept it under control, the no chocolate thing really seems to be working. I even sat through a meeting with a tray full of brownies, chocolate chip cookies and candy in front of me. I did find a single sugar cookie in the mix and enjoyed every single bite. Still loving Spark People, you earn points for recording stuff, being on the message boards, etc. I like those non-weight loss motivators.

In the gym challenge I swam for half an hour last Saturday, it was HARD. Trying to earn my stamps I also spent half an hour on the rowing machine this week, that was hard on my back. I had two elliptical & strength training workouts as well. I am up to 9 of the 20 stamps I need to win my t-shirt. Esmerelda and I are plotting a racquetball game to fill in another square.

Weight loss for the week--1.8 pounds
Total loss--5.4 pounds

Healthy foods--Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Beef Franks, yummy especially for only 50 calories. I made great Date-Nut Blondies from the Weight Watchers 2003 cookbook with a few of my own adaptations (101 calories!), I'll post later!

There must be something to this whole "exercise and eat better and you'll lose weight" thing, huh?

Good going!

Is G Man doing it with you?

sillychick- Yes and no. I am trying to eat better and such, but have not formerly signed up for Spark People thing yet. Mostly I am trying not to sabotage her efforts with my less rigid standards.

I like the hot dogs!

Good job love, Keep it up, especially the exercise ball !!

You're doing great!! I'm glad I was not in a room with cookies and brownies. I would have inhaled the entire tray this week.
