Weigh in day again...

Well it is my weigh in day again, and I am hoping for at least 2 lbs this week.  Everyone keep their fingers crossed for me.  Oh hell cross your toes to.   No really I have had an amazing week with my eating and working out.  I set the clock to get up and walk this morning and I got up and got dressed went out on the porch and could not see nothing.  Remember I live way out in the country so no street lights or anything.  I am going to have to wait until the time changes and it is lighter in the morning.  I am to scared of snakes or walking up on a wild critter of some kind.  So the morning walk is ditched for now.  I guess I could get me a treadmill, but I have always hated those things.  I like walking outside in the fresh air.   All you walkers or runners out there any preference? Outside or the treadmill or both?   Let me know..

I am really into the watermelons and cantaloupes right now as you can see from my past food journals.  Watermelons are great this year and sweet, and the cantaloupes are good to.  I prefer watermelon, but I tend to eat the whole thing so I try and only buy it once a week, cut it up and get it into the frig for the week.  I have eat a whole one before believe it or not.  I had to pee all night long that night and gained 3 lbs the next morning.  I will not do that again. 

Here is yesterdays food dairy.

Lets say you ate a watermelon. 10 cups-12 cups of usable fruit. That's 10 - 12 points. Not the end of the world, and alot of it will fly out of you... There are worse things than eating watermelon... You da bomb !!

I second Allan's thoughts. Better to eat loads of watermelon then pie. Good luck at weigh in im sure it will go great!

I really love my treadmill. I have a little room set up with all of my exercise equipment. If I can't get to the gym, or I'm pressed for time I can just go to my home gym to work out. I am really proud of myself, I thought the treadmill would be an clothes hanger....but I really use it a ton!! At least 5 days per week!! Plus I'm safe in my home. I just put a fan in front of it, it blows my hair around enough that I feel like I'm outside. Works for me! Hugs!

Hey Debbie, I looked online and found a diet called Weigh Down with a lady called Gwen Shamblin. Is this the one you did years ago?? If so, do you recommend that I get the books or tapes?? What did you think of it?

Re: Watermelon. Ask yourself - Did I get fat by eating watermelon? I doubt it. Indulge while it's in season.

I love to walk outside, but since it has been so hot, I am walking on my treadmill. I find that I get a better workout by not poking around and stopping for my dog to pee and to chat with my neighbors. But it is SO boring. I think it's best to mix it up, a few days outside and a few inside. But there is nothing like walking outside when the weather is great! It's good for the soul.

Debbie, Thanks for your genuine thoughts of support on my blog!


I prefer to walk outside, hands down. I don'tmind the treadmill but if the choice is at hand I go out every time.

I'm a watermelon freak too. Love the stuff, and canteloupes. Yummy!

I can't wait to see your weighin. I've been thinking about you and a little nervous since I told you to eat more Points. :) I'm sure it's going to be a great weighin. I'll check back tomorrow to see how it went. Fingers and toes crossed for you!

I also love watermelons! I could probably eat a whole one if I just sat in front of the TV. I think you're doing great. WW was of great help to me in the past, and if you stick with it you'll definitely lose weight. Good luck on your weigh-in.
