My weight (I lost 1.3 pounds!):
Brandon's weight (he lost .4 pounds!):
TaLaisa's weight (she lost 5 pounds! GO TALAISA!! WHOO-HOO!!):
Marianne's weight LAST week (What are you now, Marianne??):
My thoughts on the show:
*I don't like it when they get all dramatic about dying, even though it's true. Sometimes it's a little much.
*I like the Italian guy, even if his mom is a little...umm...sad? Although, I do get the water thing. I'm not afraid of water myself, but I know people who are, and it's a tough fear to overcome. Really tough.
My thoughts on weight loss this week:
*I started counting points again! (Weight Watchers Points.) Yesterday I rocked it and today I'm on track.
*Exercise is tough; but yesterday, after a motivating conversation with a buddy, I exercised on the elliptical and did some arm weights. Go me!
*Interesting thought I had:
Everybody knows what to do to be healthy. EVERYBODY. You eat fruits, veggies, grains, and you drink water. You exercise. You brush your teeth. You get enough rest. You smile. You surround yourself with good music, good friends, and good work. We all know this, right? So why is it so hard? Why are the temptations so much easier? Why do the distractions rule the day?
I like to blame Satan.
The Devil made me do it!
Just kidding! Well, sort of. You know what I mean, though. We have to take responsibility for our actions, even if it's hard. Ooh, ooh! Like I was telling Brandon last night: It doesn't matter if I lose 30 pounds or not, I will still have to take my Zoloft and my asthma meds. But that doesn't mean my asthma or my Depression should stop me from being as healthy as I can be. Limits don't automatically equate impossibility!
