Weight Watchers Twelfth Week


I can’t believe I’m down another pound! That’s 9.6 altogether. Wow!

I really wanted to be back at Weight Watchers for the holidays so I could get through them without the ridiculous weight gains of years past. As I mentioned in my last post, work has been somewhat depressing with recent layoffs, etc., and there hasn’t been a whole lot of holiday-centric food around. Ahem, that was made up for this Friday. Kreighton, from Credit, brought in his annual French Toast and maple bacon breakfast. I was late coming in (had to get a fasting blood test) so I missed that but the smells were luscious. Then some vendor brought in bagels and donuts (the kind with frosting and sprinkles, dammit). AND we had a birthday breakfast for one of our co-workers. It was wall to wall food! I had a little bit of the eggs and turkey sausage my boss made (uber-protein, gotta be good, right??) and a lot of fruit. Oh, and about a fifth of one of those evil donuts. Yea, WW kept me on track.

Tomorrow, I have to eat light because in the evening, we’re going to Panda Express for chicken bowls, then we’re picking up hot chocolate (hot vanilla for The Husband) and going to our favorite outrageously lighted neighborhood. I figure walking around a mile or so there will work off the hot chocolate but I want to make sure I don’t over do with the rice…

Christmas was giving me fits about what to have for breakfast. This is awful~what we usually have for breakfast is a whole tube of the Dough Boy’s citrus rolls… That’s gotta be about a million calories. Walking through the grocery store today, I decided on a Weight Watcher loaded breakfast sandwich.

That should please The Husband, since they look full of eggs and other proteins, and I can be somewhat happy that I’ll be eating something less than a million calories… I’m already planning to eat only half my dinner (Scottish meatloaves-meatloaf mix formed around a peeled boiled egg-The Husband likes them on Christmas because he says it’s like opening another present). Not sure what I’ll do for dessert. Maybe something WW or maybe one of the little English mince pies we’ve got here at home. Suppose it will depend on how much exercise I get in that day, watching DVD’s on the tube…

So, Happy Holidays to all!! Do what makes you happy!!

C’est la vie!
