I titled this post with my current weight.  Today, I weigh 173.  It's all part of my goal to accept the weight I am right now and move on.  I can't do anything about the fact that I've gained some weight.  The only thing I can do is face it and work on it.

So that's what I'm doing.  Today.  I went to my weight watchers meeting.  I stepped on that scale.  I kicked and screamed told the weigh in lady to have a good day.  And sat and listened to the meeting. 

I never take pictures of my food.  That was one thing I had planned on doing when I started this blog.  But since I don't have a computer at home, it's really difficult to keep that plan up.  And taking the photos with my phone doesn't look very good either.  So, I never really did it.  But at my meeting, someone was talking about how she remembers to keep track of her food and it was because she takes a picture of everything she eats. 

I thought that was a great idea.  Even if I don't post it on here because I'm technologically challenged, I can still record my food for the sole purpose of tracking it. 

I do apologize for the lack of posting.  I'm miserable at work.  Completely miserable.  I haven't had much down time either.  So hang in there.  My posting may be sporadic.  Please continue to read and offer your words of support.  I'll have to do the same and make sure I'm catching up on your blogs!  I get some many ideas and inspiration from your blogs. 

I will post all my pictures from today of my food on tomorrow's post.  I will be posting tomorrow!!  :)

Hope you all have a great weekend!

If you track your food, how do you remember to do it or how do you keep it up?

Another woman at my ww meetings puts a dollar in a jar for every day she tracks.  Interesting!  But I'm broke!  Maybe if she would put a dollar in MY jar for every day I tracked, now we have something!


  1. As usual, Amanda, you made me laugh, when you said maybe if the lady put a dollar in YOUR jar, I laughed out loud. So funny.

    Hang in there, kiddo. You've acknowledged what's going on. You went to a meeting. You've done this before. You can do it again! (I should listen to my own words to you!)

    How do I track? I keep my tracker right on my kitchen counter where I see it every single hour of the day. Of course, I work at home, so that makes it easier, but keep it right there where it's a constant reminder, your tracker AND a pen so there are no excuses that you don't have a pen and you'll do it later.

    We're all here to support each other. Remember that.

  2. Thanks Reen! And glad I could give you a laugh! I know I can do it! Thanks!

  3. Yep, accept where you are and just move on. I don't have much advice because I have a blackberry, lap top and home computer - so I am never without technology (even if I don't know what to do with it!)

    I love the eTools on WW - I almost always put my points in the night before I eat (yes, I am that organized with my food!) and then can play around with the points a little.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. That is a good take photos. I might have to try that, too.

    And I LOVE your before and after photos!! Thanks for sharing them. :O)
