Jersey Mike's

I had 17 points left for the rest of the day when I got off of work. Wade had planned to make tater tot casserole for dinner, but when I got home he was still asleep. At this point I was super hungry, so we decided to go out to eat. I looked at the Weight Watchers app and saw that my favorite sandwich at Jersey Mike's was only 11 points. I had never had it on wheat so I practiced ordering in my head so I wouldn't mess up. I proudly ordered my sandwich, started to log my points and realized I had ordered the wrong size! The mini is 11 points but a regular is 19.5!!! I can't order another sandwich... What do I do? Lie to the app? Nope, that's just cheating myself. So I recorded it as ordered. The more and more I thought about it the more upset I got. This sandwich is not worth all this and especially not worth 20 points AND going 3 over for the day. So, I am guessing you are wondering what i did. Well... I ate half the sandwich, recorded it as a mini and spent the rest of dinner blogging about it. Wade is still eating his full size double meat sandwich and I didn't want to watch. Weight Watchers day 3 was a rough one... but I have managed so far. Maybe blogging will fill the void of food - maybe not.

Today I said no...

Today I said no to stuffed jalapenos and pumpkin muffins with cream cheese icing. I am pretty proud of myself. I just hope the will power can keep holding on. :)

Headed over to mom's to finish up Davy's invites. (I will post it later)

it's been a while

I am sorry to say that I have been missing from my blog for a long time. I am back, at least for today.
I joined Weight Watchers today. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. This week's goal is to stick with it for one week. I can do one week. I went to my first meeting tonight and the lady in front of me met her goal, she had lost over 65 lbs. I was so proud of her! After she started talking, I realized that I knew her. She was one of my teachers in high school. I was even happier when she remember my name. Another lady at the meeting got her sticker for losing 150 lbs. I keep telling myself that if they can do it - so can I. I can do this - one week at a time. Wade and I went grocery shopping after dinner and I am ready to go. Day 1 - HERE I COME!!!

On another weight loss note - I am debating on weather or not to pursue having gastric bypass or not. I have to decide by Friday. I have done a lot of reading on the subject. I have always thought I wanted to, but now I am not so sure. I think I am probably going to do Weight Watchers for one year and if I am not happy with where I or haven't been able to stick with it then I will reconsider next November. I just don't know. What do you think?
