A week in the life of Ann on Weight Watchers

One of my regular readers, Jen, asked if I would be willing to share what I eat to be successful on Weight Watchers®. So I am going to share my “menus”/tracking/what I have eaten this week. For those of you not familiar with WW–just a few things I want to mention before I launch into my […]


Back on plan, on my way to goal weight (again)

Right before Curt and I headed to Mexico City I weighed in super close to my goal weight. Like ounces away. My hard work is paying off. Like I said I would, while in Mexico City I ate and drank what I wanted. I had a lot of amazing food and beer and margaritas. We […]


To stay on plan or to not stay on plan?

My mom comes into town tomorrow night. Curt is heading to Missouri for a high school reunion. So I invited my mom out here for a girls’ weekend. I haven’t decided yet whether the time she is here I will be counting points and tracking my food. I am gonna just go with the flow. […]


Recommitting to Weight Watchers

I am committed to eating healthy as I wrote about recently. But I have to admit I am having a hard time with the accountability. Weight Watchers helped me lose my 30 pounds years ago. So I have decided to utilize the expertise of them once again. I don’t have time to go to meetings […]


Planning, dedication, hard work pays off

Last week I talked about how planning my meals and my exercise was keeping me on track. Well, the regular exercise and healthy eating has proven to be worthy. I got on the scale this morning and I lost 2.2 pounds from a week ago. I haven’t tracked my food or counted Points or calories. […]


Heading back toward healthy lifestyle

Getting beach ready by tracking food

I have a little more than three weeks until Curt and I head to Barcelona for a a glorious week. So that means I have a little more than three weeks to get back to my goal weight. I have 5 pounds to lose. I would love to also be toned as I will be […]


Stress eating

Today was a stressful day on a few levels. As I stated yesterday I am not hitting the gym this week in the hopes I take it easy I feel better quicker. But that also means I have to be much more careful in the caloric intake department. Things were going well until this afternoon. […]


Staying on track

Today is Day 7 of me getting back to healthy living. I worked out six times this week and counted points (tracked food) every day and stayed on track. Once I got going again with tracking my food it was liking riding a bike. The hardest part is the willpower. But once you get back […]


About 3 pounds

The working out and tracking food is slowly working. I am about 3 pounds from my goal weight. Last week I hit the gym six times. And I tracked my food all week. I hope I can keep the discipline for the rest of this week. Next week will be tough as friends will be […]
