What I Ate Yesterday and What I've Thought About Today

My official weigh in weight yesterday:  335.8 pounds.  I didn't cry.  I didn't scream.  I didn't even feel nauseated over it.  If anything, I felt numb.  But mostly, I think it didn't bother me as much, because I'm tired.  I'm tired of the weight and I'm READY.  Ready for it to go away and never come back.

At 335.8, I am entitled to 51 daily points in addition to my 49 weekly points.  I planned ahead Monday night and I stuck to it.

Now, the reason I'm talking about what I ate yesterday and not what I ate today is completely superficial - I took photographs of almost all my food yesterday.  And I feel like I need to share those with you.  But please forgive my addiction to Instagram.

Breakfast:  9 Points Plus

1 serving old fashioned oatmeal cooked in water
1 tbsp reduced fat peanut butter
1 tsp brown sugar
1 cup coffee
1/2 cup 2% milk

Oatmeal 1 tsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp reduced fat = oatmeal that tastes like a cookie.  So good!

I'm sure you can't tell from the AMAZING quality of these photos, but I am not a professional photographer.  And yes, that is Mickey Mouse gracing the front of my coffee mug.


2 cups romaine lettuce
1/4 cup red onion
1/4 cup bell pepper
1/4 cup garlic hummus
1/2 avocado
LARGE unsweetened McDonald's Iced Tea (they have the BEST iced tea!!!)

The iced tea of champions!


1 Kim's Magic Pop
2 tbsp Nutella


Weight Watchers Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken
mashed potatoes

NOT the best picture in the world, admittedly, but the chicken was delish!

Today was equally good, my friends.  I'm feeling so motivated, so in control, like I can do anything.  We had a work "retreat" today that started after lunch.  In the past, I probably would have grabbed some fast food and eaten it on the way or once I arrived.  Not today.  I made myself a big salad with light sour cream, homemade guacamole, salsa, and lots of veggies.  I didn't touch (and didn't want) any of the chocolate or party mix that was sitting on our table.  I had originally intended to stay for the dinner, but ended up leaving beforehand and making myself a vegetarian buritto with more veggies for dinner.  And I finished it all off with a chocolate frozen yogurt from Braum's (omg!  can't believe how good that was).  And for the first time, in a long time, I can honestly, honestly say there is not one thing in the past 3 days that I have eaten that I have been ashamed of. 

And I'm also noticing that I really, really want to start moving again.  And right now, it's just a matter of working it into my day.

So, tomorrow's another day.  Lunch is provided at work, so wish me luck!
