Weekly Weigh In

After a week of not really paying attention to much but sticking to the plan I have lost 2.5 more lbs!
Which means only 2.5 more to 145! When I weigh myself I am so surprised because I don't see a difference in myself but the scale does change so I guess somethings are shrinking?

A movers lunch

As we are moving there have been several meals out recently. Last night I knew we were getting chinese takeout in advance so I hopped on over to the WW site to see what they recommended.

They have this "eating out" section where you scroll over the items you want to eat .. its basically nauseating and makes your eyes roll weirdly.. cannot figure out who thought that was a good idea!

Anyways they recommend brown rice and chicken chow mein. I thought sure that sounds great.. but i have never had chicken chow mein. It is weird and white. But I ate it. Bc that is how I roll.

I also had a mooshoo pancake w/veal, a bit of fried rice and chicken chow mein.

Today's lunch was leftover with some brown rice, chicken chow mein, and some duck sauce:
looks hot, I know.

I have noticed that I have not been sticking to the "Good Health Guidelines" over the past couple of days .. and wouldn't you know that that is on my this week you should homepage!

The guidelines are:
1. Eat at least five servings of vegetables and fruits each day, (nine servings if you weigh over 350 pounds.)
2. Choose whole-grain foods, such as brown rice and oats, whenever possible.
3. Include two servings of milk products – low fat (1%) or fat-free – each day. If you’re a nursing mom, teenager, over 50 years old, or weigh more than 250 pounds, you should have three servings of milk products each day.
4. Have 2 teaspoons of healthy oils (olive oil, canola, sunflower, safflower or flaxseed) each day.
5. Ensure that you are getting enough protein by choosing at least a serving or two of lean meats, skinless poultry, fish, beans, soy products, and lentils.
6. Limit added sugar and alcohol.
7. Drink at least 6 8-ounce glasses of liquid a day. Water is the best choice.
8. Take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement each day.

I have definitely not been eating as much dairy as I used to with my yogurt smoothies and cottage cheese, or that many veggies for that matter! Once we move.. oh didn't I mention that we are moving? well we are. So once that's over I will definitely get back in the swing of grocery shopping and plan on eating more dairy and more servings of veggies!

Yummy dinner

I haven't posted food pics in awhile because I haven't been making much of anything. Very busy times right now in the personal life so food (although I am still on WW) isn't all that new and exciting. Neither was last nights but it was so good that I decided to take a pic:

This was leftover Beef Shish-Kabobs cut up and grilled Yellow Squash from Hapisga Steakhouse in Queens, NY (Really good kosher meat place!) over a cup of Rice Pilaf- Spanish Rice flavor.

It was delicious and filling! And we all know how much I love beef so this was a win!

Weekly Weigh In- AC Style

Soo After a weekend on the Jersey Shore (not the sleezy one) but the AC one and the Deal one I am back! We stayed at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City, aka the most random mix of people ever. I only sat outside for 1 hour on Shabbat and then on Sunday after applying tons of spray on sunscreen burnt my entire back and both shoulders!
So Burnt:
Might not look like much.. but it hurts!

I weighed in this morning after a not so strict weekend (as usual) and I am back to 151.5 which I am happy with. I ate constantly and even had 2 bites of a Ben and Jerry's sunday which is essentially as many points as a meal.

This week I will be much more strict with eating and hope to lose btw 1 and 2 lbs again!

Back From California

We were away on an amazing vacation for a week and it was my first vacation while on Weight Watchers. While I wasn't really logging in and noting all my points I definitely didn't just let myself go (at least until the last day). I missed my weekly weigh in and decided to just not weigh myself until the next week.

With all the Coffee Beans and yummy food I am pretty happy that I only gained back a 1/2 lb which means that this past Mondays weigh in was 152. Now I am back on the plan at full throttle and hopefully will continue to lose..

Here are the food shots from our Cali trip:

Cheesy Jalapeno Bagel at Coffee Bean
 (I know this is a gross pic but I had to document my first bagel in at least 3 months!)

Side of the road corn!

Fish Grill in Malibu - Grilled Fish Tacos
Not as good as it sounded or looked so I only ate 1 and the salad and snacked on a couple of fries

Hubs Grilled salmon on a bed of pasta - ate some of the salmon - delicious!

Falafel platter - split with friends

Crazy Amount of Chinese Food Consumed

Now back to losing weight!
