It’s never too late to start over. If you weren’t happy with yesterday, try something different today. Don’t stay stuck, change.
Another 151lb lost on my scales yesterday morning, yep we’re getting slimmer this summer and I know predominantly meetings are female based, however I have my share on fellas and they are fabulous, I look forward to my Wednesday evenings where we have a good mixed meeting of bother ladies and lads including Dave, Phil, Taz and Alan who keeping me in check over my chips! Dave’s less than 10lb away from his 100lb certificate, how fantastic is that and Alan lost 3.5lb last night to get his 2 and a half stone, they’re all doing fab and the ladies were doing equally as well yesterday, with 6 receiving their 5% awards, a couple getting their 10% and the lovely Pearl reaching her goal, not to mention Tina who lost 8lb in her first week –gobsmacked I was! Anyway I shouldn’t start doing this because it gets out of control, as there is so much success going on in the meetings, it does prove that Weight Watchers works any time of the year, because it really is a forever thing…
Quite a few of you know my mom so this video is to make you smile (please don’t watch if you’re offended by swear words as there are a few in there, she’s 76 and has a potty mouth, what can I say) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152496989575862&l=8900142780605631398 This is moms usual bedtime ritual, or at least it’d be something like it! She’s my world is my mom, after all she's the reason I breath! She's as mad as a March hare but absolutely marvellous, the tales she could tell! To look at her you wouldn’t think she was once 18 stone would you, I’m so glad we both joined Weight Watchers ten years ago because her bodies a bit of a mess now with her aching joints and pain, I can’t imagine how it would feel if she was still carrying her extra weight.
I haven’t really talked food this week have I, we ate delicious yesterday we really did, I had a plum and banana with natural yogurt for breakfast and a couple of slices of low calorie brown bread with a scrape of jam on (that was yummy, haven’t had jam for ages!) For lunch we had salmon, brown rice and vegetables, I cooked the salmon using those Maggi ‘So Tender’ Garlic chicken papyrus things on my George Foreman, it worked a treat and cooked them perfectly, full of flavour. For tea I used one of the leftover salmon pieces and had salmon and cucumber Warburton square thins with WW dressing, again truly scrumptious. I do love Weight Watchers, the flexibility of Filling & Healthy foods and ProPoints really does make it easy to eat in a way that’s satisfying.
I’m loving the photos that are coming in for the “where do you read yours” magazine facebook thing. In case you missed it, here’s what it’s all about;
