- 2.8 lbs Oh My!

This week I had a weigh in and a Drs. appointment. First off I weighed in on Tuesday and lost 2.8 lbs for a total loss of 8.4 lbs in two weeks! I've met my 4% goal for Diet Bet! Only 11 more days before the game is over and the money is split up among those that reached their goal. There are 7,947 players and $238,440 in the pot. I'll keep you posted on the winnings.

Earlier this week I had an appointment with a surgeon and I made the decision to go ahead with the surgery as scary as it seems. I don't relish the thought of being cut into. Thankfully it's a minimally invasive procedure and I'll be in and out of the hospital in the same day. My surgery date is set for October 24th.

There was no shortage of comedy at the surgeons office. Of course in the waiting room as I'm speaking to the nurse/receptionist she asked me how my injury happened. "Did this happen at work or where you in a car accident?" Of course just two feet to the left of me was a mature woman in a chair filling out some medical forms. What could I do? What should I say? So I just put all my cards on the table in a matter of fact fashion and said: "It happened in bed". The receptionists expression was a memorable one. Her eyes got big and her jaw dropped. She was speechless for a second and then said "Oh My!". She then said "I'll be with you shortly". Maybe 30 seconds or a minute went buy and she opened the door to the waiting room and called my name: "Sonya". I then asked my husband to come in the room with me and introduced him to her: "This is my husband Chris" I said with a big smile. We then walked through the threshold with her leading us. While her back was to us she threw out a statement "Time to put the trapeze away".  She glanced back at us and smiled. She explained that she never heard that as an explanation for an injury. I think I made her day. :)

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

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

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
