My Pants Have Died

4 Oct

A couple weeks ago I had to stop wearing one of my work pants – they just became so big I couldn’t wear then anymore, while I am sad to lose a pair of pants cause I don’t have all that many in the first place I did quite the happy dance when I was able to take those pants off without undoing them. lol. 😀

Well, even better…I was able to take off a different pair of pants saturday without undoing them. 😀 wOOt! I am slowly but surely losing my wardrobe…those pants are dead to me! mwahahahahahaha

It’s kinda too bad cause the pants that became officially too big this past saturday were a pair of my favourite pants, lol, figures right? They were brown cords with some detailing on the back pockets and a slightly distressed look around the front and back pockets. I was grocery shopping and they were literally falling off my hips/ass. Awesome!!

I was going to go digging through my closet this past sunday and retry a bunch of my clothes on, see if there is anything else I can get in to or better yet something I haven’t been able to wear in a loooong time that now fits, or is at least closer to fitting but I decided to wait. In total I have lost 11.6 lbs which YAH!! But I decided to wait to retry all my clothes on until I have lost 15 lbs – it will be my reward/treat to me for reaching a kick ass number.

I have been trying to not give myself treats for losing weight – if I associate losing weight with me getting something I want then what happens when I have lost all the weight I want to lose (man, I hope that actually happens!) and I no longer have a reason to treat myself? So instead of going out and buying a new pair of pants when I have lost 15 lbs I will go through my closet and see if something I already own I can now wear. It’s like a treat but not…least in my head…lol

I think if I do buy something at some point it will be a mirror, a full length mirror. The only mirror I have is the one in the bathroom and it only shows me down to my upper thigh. This hasn’t bothered me all that much since I moved in here cause I don’t think I look good Ev-Er! and I don’t like looking at myself but I think at some point I may not mind seeing myself in a mirror quite so much…I don’t know that that time is coming up right away – after all, there is a full length mirror in the bathroom at work that hates me and makes me look oh so fat, ugh, I hate that mirror. That mirror makes me never want to look at myself in a mirror again! But eventually, when my self-esteem and my wallet are in cahoots I will treck off to Winners and get me a snazzy full length mirror for my room – just like a normal person! lol. 😛

Today I ate:

29 grams honey nut cheerios = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 banana = 2 points

1 nectarine = 1 point

1/2 cup Maple Baked Beans = 2 points

1 piece toast = 1 point

2 triangles light laughing cow cheese = 1 point

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

salad = 0 points 

1 tbls three cheese ranch dressing = 1 point

raw mixed veggies = 0 points

85 grams whole wheat pasta = 5 points

1/2 cup Primo Thick n Zesty sauce = 1 point

mixed veggies cooked = 0 points

1 corn on the cob = 1 point

1 tsp margarine = 1 point

That puts me at 21 points for the day. I am going to eat my Soft Pumpkin cookie that I saved for my evening treat in just a little bit. It’ll put me over in to flex points because the cookie is 3 points but that is ok because the potluck at work got moved from this wednesday to next wednesday so I don’t have to save all my flex points for wednesday anymore. This doesn’t mean I am gonna go crazy with them or anything but it does mean I get a cookie! teehee

Lately I have realized I am not eating as many veggie servings as I had been in the past and that’s no good! So with dinner I cooked up some mixed frozen veg then put it in the tomato sauce so when I topped the pasta it was with a veggie filled tomato sauce. It was good, the flavour of the veggies totally made up for me not putting the parmesan cheese on tonight – I didn’t put the cheese on cause I wanted the corn on the cob (and margarine to top it with) more – there’s a lot of give an take with weight watchers. Like, ok you can have the cookie but that means you can’t have as large a dinner as you are used to so you may be hungry by the end of the day – stuff like that. Oh, btw, that did not happen today, my dinner was plenty big and tasty and filling and I still get my cookie but that’s cause I learned how to work the system. lol.
