I know, LOL...it will be long. But then it will be cool to be able to look back at our progress too.

So this is the last weekend to go crazy!

I go to Thursday meetings. I did want to say to people who are just starting meetings - try out a few different days/time so you can try out different leaders. I did this and I found one that I love so much and is hilarious, so in-tuned to what everyone (including her) is going through and is motivating - not just about WW but about treating yourself well. Just my suggestion. I know if I stuck with the lady I went to the first time I defintiely wouldn't have kept going... she was BORING!

 

OK, so I confess i skipped my weigh in last week! I ended up drinking too much wine with friends wednesday nigth and then of course I ate chips and dips, and all sorts of non-diet friendly stuff. Anyway I am hopefully back on track now so I hope for a stay the same or loss for Thursday...

 

Oh, and no matter what week you're on get that Week 3 or 4 booklet with the exercise plan - it is SO helpful! I plan on getting my points through power yoga, stationary bike and wallking...

 

Jilly - not only does muscle weigh more than fat but SORE MUSCLES HOLD WATER!!! Which means your loss will probably show up next week once your muscles "heal." stay strong and keep at it. You will definitely lose more weight by eating right AND exercising in the long run... and that's what counts!

 

On that note I am going to try and hop onto the bike before going out tonight but I just can't get up from the computer!

We are having a dinner party tonight (patiently waiting for them right now). I am going to my famouse artichoke cheese dip without any guilt. Yummy! Oh, I can't forget the wine, we just opened it so it can breathe.

MMmm... Yum! Ruth Chris, is one of our favorite steak houses!

So, I was 'fairly' good tonight. After we went furniture shopping we went to dinner and I caved (at Steve's insistence), and had one drink. Only 1 though. Much better than a typical Saturday night.

I do have one question though. Steve said that Barcardi and diet coke is 0 calories (not sure if it's true), but if so why does the WW calculator, calculate them at 2 points?

Oooh, thanks for that Kash, I didn't know that, although I did so bad this week that I'm sure it was all for nothing!! I'm going to start going to meetings, I'm pretty sure they're on monday nights.

All alcohol has calories, I believe a shot of bacardi is around 90 calories or so?

So, I usually try to have drinks that I can use a non calorie mixer, like Diet Coke, Soda water, or my favorite, crystal light.

Or have wine, if I'm at home, I'll just measure out a glass of wine.

Thanks... I knew 0 calories was too good to be true! :-)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
