DRUMROLL PLEASE.....

dum da da dum......

DOWN 3.6 tonight at WI.

Yes, you read that right...almost 4#!!!!! WOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I also got my first 5# star. For my own personal records, I go by my scale this morning which said 164.9. YEAH!!!

So...maybe there is something to having a really high point day on Saturdays? I mean a controlled high day...not a free for all, eat-all-you-can-shove-in-and-then-some day, but maybe 10 points over?? I guess, technically, this would be the Wendie plan. But man...2 days before WI??!?!? Today, Randi posted a blog about this kind of thing. I seriously think she was talking to me a little bit! Thank you swizzlepop for pointing this out to me. I greatly appreciate it!

So, with that being said...I think I might just give Wendie a try this week. I just looked at the link NCChris posted a while back and found out that my SHD would be Friday and not Saturday. Check it out here, if you are interested. I could probably switch them up and be really low on Sunday. I may give it a shot. See, my sister's bachelorette party is on Saturday, thus the reason for me wanting to have a higher day then. I don't plan to totally overindulge, but BFF superjayman is coming into town Saturday morning and she is bad news on the diet front. I love her to death, but the last time she was here, we were bad, bad, bad!!! All we did was eat out and eat badly. She's been doing really well lately, but I know how she is....she's losing now so she can have a "cushion" when she comes here. I told her today over the phone that I am not the one on vacation, she is. If we could stick to say Ruby Tuesday's (with NO burgers!) or even Panera, or even better Subway, it would be great. But I am sure that won't be the case all the time. I know one night is going to be Cheeseburger in Paradise, but that will be Monday night AFTER WI. Thank the good lord! I will get a plan in place for when she's here before she gets here. I will have to think about it though! :)

So my goals for the week:

1)Water--135 ounces minimum
2)Fruits and veggies--5 per day
3)Exercise--3 days of some kind--it's going to be a tough week b/c DS starts gymnastics tomorrow (Tuesday) night and that's my usual night at the gym. So I may have to go even later or just do Pilates. And since Tuesday is my first day of my WW week, I like to start the week off in good form. It usually helps to set the tone for the week. So 3 days is my goal, don't care if it's 3 days of pilates, but I would really love at least 2 cardio sessions.
4)Wendie--stick to her like white on rice

Also, I am going to REALLY try to get in more milk this week and really stick to the 8 healthy guidelines. Notice I said try. I know I need more milk. I bought some chocolate syrup this weekend at the store and it's really good in my milk...it's the lite Hershey syrup.

Oh and a HUGE NSV tonight....no ice cream after WI. I've gotten into that habit, but tonight I didn't have any. Mostly b/c it was raining, but stilll..forces of nature told me I didn't need it! :)

Oh and one more thing...Someone gave me a great idea for breakfast and I had it today and it was awesome. I scrambled up some egg beaters, toasted an english muffin and put some 2% cheese on it with a slice of tomato--yum!!! All for only 4 points and boy was I stuffed for a while! I will definitely have that tomorrow. I may even add some turkey bacon to it. I also had a banana with it so 5 points total. Absolutely YUM! :)

That's it from me tonight....Have a great OP Tuesday!

Great job on the loss! Woohoo! Now you're one of THOSE people in meetings who get the 5# stickers.....:)

Candace said...

Awesome!! This Wendie thing has really peaked my interest. As I mentioned to Size 6 Again, I think it will involve a fair bit of planning, but could be the ticket to jumping those plateau's.

Ahhh!!! I am bouncing and screaming for you in my desk chair!!! I am so excited, that is such an awesome loss!! You ROCK!
I think Wendie would be a great option for you while Superjayman is in town. It realy lets you splurge without feeling like you are totally off plan. The only thing I have found that doesn't work for me is not using my APs. The first week I tried it I didn't use any of them and I didn't lose anything, this week I have been using them well anything over 4 and the scale is moving.
Well, keep it up and keep me posted.

3.6 is GREAT!!!!!! Thanks for the note letting me know you mentioned me, that was sweet. If you read my latest entry I really think that there is something to the Wendie plan or at least something similar. At least for me and my "research" ;).

You are doing great. I hope you and superjayman have a great weekend! Enjoy!
