aka "The Holy $hit I see a FOUR in the Scale!" Post

aka "NO, I’m NOT following Weight Watchers!" Post.

I SO wish I had more time tonight. I have too much to get out of my head but it’s already late and I’m still paying bills with husband –we do all our finances together but have been slacking. Now he’s sitting next to me but I bailed to talk to you. It’s more fun. ;)

Crap! I also have to try to get bed early because tomorrow is an early workout day.

DAMN there’s just not enough hours in the day!

Ok, sorry. I’m all over the place tonight. I’m just so darn excited. My food journaling is working! This is the lowest number I’ve seen on the scale since before getting pregnant.

And I feel GREAT!

Momentum has taken over.

I’m in the zone.

And NO, I’m NOT following Weight Watchers. Everyone seems to be asking me that lately. Here’s the really, super quick, story..

I feel in love with Weight Watchers, lost 70lbs, went into maintenance, still counted points for a few years, got pregnant, tried to follow PointsPlus after baby #2, didn’t like it, decided to do my own thing.

After being at this for 7 years I’ve come up with my own set of "rules" and I’m putting them into practice to finally lose these last 5, er, I mean 4 pounds! (145 is my personal goal.)

They seem to be working despite the random s’more. ;)

Anyway, I promise to go more into my "rules" but right now I have to finish these bills with The Husband before he kills me and then I have to go to bed. Here’s today’s food journal…

Food
What Why
1 egg/1 egg white omelet made with some kale, chard and bacon bits. The farm is REALLY influencing my veggie intake now. I have the stuff, might as well eat it!
mozzarella caprese quinoa salad (click here for the recipe) OMG made this up for lunch.. it was SO good.
Popcorn fun snack with Little Bean – He’s as obsessed as I am!
watermelon Snack time, I had some becuase Bean had some.
Grilled Turkey Loin + roasted veggie mix + 1/2 sweet potato/1/2 baked potato Dinner was great! I split the potatoes with kids. It really works for us.
orange I REALLY wanted to munch when we started the bills, grabbed this instead
Activity
Walked with the baby to the gym and took yoga
Water
Good. hydrated but not running to the bathroom every 10 minutes. :)

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

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. 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.

    Wonderful Wednesday weigh-in indeed! Your posts have been just what I needed this week. You’re an inspiration for a lot of reasons;-) but this week is for perseverance. You reminded me that you don’t throw in the towel over a plateau. You just keep doing it because as you say, what’s the alternative? Way to go Roni! I actually squealed when I saw your number on the scale! lol I’m so happy for you!

    Hi Ronnie. I have been following you for over a year now and happy for your success in the 140’s. You have such a hectic schedule and can imagine it is hard to plan but being a former weight watchers less 85 lbs I look forward to your daily emails. I still go and weigh in every Thursday for the last 2 years and hav been able to keep it off for a year and a half. I have a 6, 5 and 2 year old and life is crazy. The great thing about ww is that we always know what to do when we don’t necessarily have a great day or 2. Your success is a highlight in my day and you inspire me everyday! Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    Congrats on a great weigh in..what an awesome feeling! :)

    Congrats! I’m way too excited for someone I’ve never met. LOL!

    I think this shows that a week off from working out is NOT a bad thing. (that was this past week that you were sick, right?) Your body got to recover and looks to be pretty happy about it. :)

    Oh Roni, you are SO SO SO motivating to me. I am your height and at my highest, was 212 pounds. After several years, having three daughters, and occasionally losing my focus on losing weight, I am at 167 pounds. I am exercising and counting calories and the scale is moving! My goal is to look as fabulous as you do in your pics when you are 140-150 pounds. So I feel how excited you are to see a 4 on the scale. Your excitement gives me excitement as well. Congrats!!

    SO happy for you! Seriously. YOU are inspiring (capitalized b/c it’s you – not WW, not your “rules,” not even the # on your scale!)
