Hungry Wednesday

This morning I weighed in at 210.8, which is a .2 loss for the week. That doesn’t even make up for my gain last week. I had a really good week this last week so I was a little disappointed, but a loss is a loss and it’s better than a gain. Total lost is 77.2 lbs.

For breakfast, I had a slice of light toast topped with peanut butter and a sliced banana along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 5 points.

I was hungry by my first break, and decided to try something different. I took a serving of Ak-Mak Whole wheat crackers and spread with 2 Laughing Cow Cheese wedges on top for 4 points.

I also made a green smoothie: 2 oranges, 1 cup of spinach, for 1 point.

For lunch, I had leftover ham and cheese casserole and squash for 6 points.

And I had a No Pudge! Brownie for 3 points.

On my last break, I had a sore throat and wanted something cold on my throat, so I had a Weight Watcher’s Dark Chocolate Raspberry bar for 2 points.

I don’t know what was up with me, but I will be totally honest. I just wanted to eat. I ate a couple bites of different snacky items. I think this was emotional eating for a variety of reasons. I will estimate this as 3 points. That’s behavior I cannot get started!! Sad smile

So to try to stop with the mindless snacking, I had a 100 Calorie Pack of popcorn for 3 points.

For supper, I had a egg white omelet with ham and cheese along with a bowl of strawberries and blueberries for 5 points.

I also had a glass of orange juice because it just sounded good. I hardly ever drink orange juice anymore and couldn’t believe how SWEET it tasted it- almost made me sick! 3 Points.

After supper I jumped on the bike for 30 minutes and burned 102 calories.

I used 1 weekly point for the day.

We’re over half way through the week! Yay!

  2. Oh I hate those hungry days. I try to do everything I can to distract myself. I'm home late from the gym tonight and can't decide what to make for late supper and now after reading this, I'm having an omelette and some turkey bacon!!

  3. Even though you were snacky you made great choices.
    Popcorn usually does the trick for me. You're going to be in onderland before you know it

  6. I know all about those snacky days. I sit at a desk for 10 hours a day and I get so bored sometimes all I will do is snack. So I am having to make sure that its nothing but good stuff, though you can sure overeat on the good stuff as well. >.<

    You count points, do you count calories by chance?

    And how did you get your tracker at the very top of your page? I am only able to get it on the side of mine for some reason.
