One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

JOURNAL

bleh, Bleh and BLEH!

13 Comments 1464 views

I feel yucky.  Yup, yucky, and bleh.  Those are about the only words to describe me right now. I’m exhausted, tired, stuffed, bloated and overall YUCKY!

I ate too much every day since the day before Thanksgiving. That’s how many days? Ummmm *counting on fingers* 4, FOUR days of being out of routine, having more temptation and totally just eating what I wanted, when I wanted it. Is it possible to gain 25 points in 4 days? Because that’s how I feel right now.

Tomorrow is a new day. I returned home tonight.  I don’t care how tired I am tomorrow, I AM going to a Weight Watchers meeting, I AM working out and I AM going to journal in loss mode for the next few weeks.

For those that don’t know my “loss mode” is when I go back to basics with Weight Watchers and Flex points. I start tracking weekly points and keeping a food journal 7 days a week.  Normally I do my version of maintenance where I track only during the week and just try to stay under 30 points.  

So for as much as I got off track this past week I’m not letting it get me down. Don’t beat yourself up, it’s not worth it.  I lived it up for thanksgiving and now I’m home. I know what needs to be done and now I’m going to do it. It’s that simple!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a full report on my official weigh in (oh god, I’m trying not to think about it) and first food journal of the week.

Have a great night!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Me Four!!!

    OK so I’m jumpin on the counting points wagon too! I’ve been struggling for way too long and I need to get more consistant.

    Roni… I haven’t had the chance to comment on your page lately…I’ve been away. But I’m just so happy for you about being on the cover of Women’s world….what a nice treat for Thanksgiving! I haven’t picked up my copy yet but I will be the next time I’m in town. I just keep thinking of that song about being on the cover of the rolling stones….”gonna buy 5 copies for my mother….gonna see my smiling face on the cover of the rolling stones!” Yep that’s our Roni!!! Good for you!

    And I love, love, love your new food page….don’t know how you fit all this stuff in but I’m glad you do! And the toddler is way cute!

    Have a good week Roni….you will be feeling better in no time!

    I am so the same. We’ve had Thanksgiving things every day since the day before Thanksgiving. Today though is finally back to “normal”. I am bloated for sure, but stepped on the scale today and had a 4 lb gain. I nearly cried.

    It’s so great to know that I am not alone here. I really need to get back to basics too!

    Accountability, commitment. That’s what will set you apart from those who will continue to gain, then just give up.

    You recognize that you overdid it, which I believe is typical/normal behavior over the holidays, you admit it to yourself and others, and you are making the commitment to get right back on track. This is why you were,are and will continue to be successful at keeping off the weight. No reason to beat yourself up. Celebrate that you can still indulge on occasion so long as you get back into your routine (and maybe work a little extra hard for a few days). A few days of indulgence will not cancel out the good habits you follow the rest of the time :)))))

    Roni,
    Me too. I ate SO well during Turkey week but last month, I gained a good 10 lbs. I’ve lost 6 of them, but I had to start journaling 7 days a week, too. I’m right along with you. You are not alone and you’re a HUGE inspiration. Every time I want to “cheat,” I hear you in my head….thanks so much!

    Roni: You can pretty much sign my name to your post and it would say the very same thing. I way over did it before/during/after Thanksgiving. I’ve been tracking like a woman scorned now! We’ve done this before, we can do this again. Oh, and I picked up ‘your magazine’ yesterday. You look great!

    Roni,
    I have also been really good so far for the holidays. I seem to be doing great by staying busy. I bake, clean, and organize to stay on track. And even though I am a lifetime member, I weigh in at meetings every other week to stay on track. I am currently 12 pounds under my original goal and happy.. You guys can all do it!!!! BELIEVE!

    I agree with staying busy. I rarely sit down during the day and my motto is “There’s always something to clean.” I started at a size 20/22 and 230lbs and I am now a size 4/6 and 137.5lbs. I love weight watchers. It works if you work the program. All take care!
