    I was feeling extraordinarily fat & just couldn't take it any more. I think just tracking things makes me competitive with myself! Funny how that works. Anyway, I am allowed 23 points per day. I have come to grips with the fact that my preference for a couple glasses of wine after work is a major problem. I didn't have any last night & went to the gym instead.

    Getting old sucks!

    Good girl, Christa! So proud of you!
    I finally talked Doug into adding on to my membership. I know for a fact I will be more motivated to go since he will be with me. I hate getting home from work and leaving him there to wait for me.

      Good luck, Christa! I just joined a group at my work and lost a few lbs in the first week, so I am excited about it and it seems to work!

      But I agree, the wine/liquor is a problem!

        Great job Christa! Since I'm no longer on the "gotta fit into my wedding dress" diet.. the lbs are starting to show up again.. I might get on this band wagon too..

              I'm surprised to see that I'm pretty good in the eating department. I think my real issue is portion size management and alcohol consumption!

              Last night I did have a glass of wine because it fit into my points. I must say that was much more conscious of savoring it since I was being mindful of controlling the amount. Eek gads!

                Christa I know exactly what you mean. My portions were definetly larger before, not to say that I never ate bad things, but having to actually count the points really helps keep you in check.

                I try not to drink too much when I'm dieting, partially because of the points it costs and also because when I drink, the next day I wake up STARVING and will end up falling off the wagon.

                However, when I know I'm going to want to have a few drinks, like on the weekends, I will usually eat pretty light during the day to save up points. A whole bottle of wine is around 12-14 points if I remember correctly, lol! Yep, I measured every cup, but I was starting to get a little loopy towards the end thats why I don't remember the exact amount of points.

                when I know I can only have one glass, I do the same thing, savor every sip.
