-.6lb Feeling Full


After all the carbs I ate yesterday I'm feeling not super hungry this morning however I did eat for breakfast:
Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves, 13-Ounce Jars (Pack of 6)
Wheat toast w 1TB light cream cheese and a thin smear of Bonne Maman Cherry Preserves.  3pt
Coffee w creamer 1pt
Applesauce 0pt
Banana 0pt

In case you are wondering - yes I eat allot :-)

Bonne Maman is my favorite brand of preserves and the price in the store is manageable when it's on sale.  Here are the ingredients:
Cherries, Sugar, Cane Sugar, Fruit Pectin, Citric Acid.  I purchase the Strawberry Preserves for the kids PBJ sandwiches.  I'm sure there are some lower sugar versions of Strawberry Preserves out there that don't cost an arm and a leg that have organic ingredients - I just haven't found any in my local store (unless we drive to Trader Joe's which is about 45minutes away :-(.

Before I had breakfast this morning I stepped on the scale and I'm a minus .6 lbs.  I was a little bit surprised based on how much food I ate yesterday ( I ate beyond the point of being full - not good even if I could eat the extra calories).  The interesting part is I did a pre weigh in on Saturday and I had a loss of 1.2lbs.  It is what it is and I'm not stressing about it.  I'm exercising and eating well 95% of the time so it all evens out in the end.  I have to live right?

Here is my food log from yesterday (I ate dinner for lunch.  I must say I'm slightly embarrassed on how much food I ate - I've always felt embarrassed at how much food I can eat):



 My Weight Watchers meeting is tomorrow evening so I'll see what their scale says at that weigh in.  Wish me luck!


Note: When it comes to working out and Weight Watchers I don't credit myself extra points for the exercise I do.  I figure I'm going to have to workout for the rest of my life so what better time than now to just accept that fact and keep it simple.

  1. 160.2 here's to only going down from here! I joined peertrainer, haven't had a lot of time yet this a.m. to browse the site. I woke up with what seems to be the beginning of a cold :( The kids had fever yesterday -- we are going to the pediatrician's today. :(

    So fun to catch up!!!

  2. Sonya, I always eat more than my husband does. For dinner, I always have seconds; he rarely does. He jokes that I am "eating for two" - because I am nursing. For the past 5 years, I've been either pregnant or nursing almost the entire time. Anyway, I never felt embarrassed that I eat so much... I really enjoy food, and it's all really good home-made food, so there's nothing to feel badly about.
    Keep up your positive attitude, your healthy eating, and your workouts. You are doing great!

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!! The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and l

Mini Blizzards

Genius This Mini PB cup Blizzard is worth 10 Weight Watchers points plus vs a Small PB cup Blizzard which is worth 16 Weight Watchers points plus. Mini blizzards are great when you want something sweet on occasion but don't want to kill yourself with tons of calories (there are still more calories in a mini blizzard compared to a cup of carrot sticks however).  This PB cup Mini Blizzard was perfect size and hit the spot. Here is the download on 'nutrition' for the Mini PB cup Blizzard ( http://www.calories-nutrition.buddyslim.com/dairy-queen-blizzard-mini/ ): Mini PB Cup Blizzard
