Sweets Cravings

This morning I weighed in at 207.8, which is a .4 gain this week. I can’t be mad at myself or beat myself up, because I can say with confidence that I followed the plan. I tracked my points, I exercised for 5 hours and 19 minutes. I earned 32 AP’s. I did use all of my weekly points and used 6 AP’s. But with all of that exercise- I would think I would be ok. So I am proud of my week. I am going to give it my all this week again, knowing that I am taking better care of my body and that I am getting healthier—even if the scale doesn’t want to show me any love. Plus, come on, .4 lbs.—that could be anything.

I slept in this morning instead of getting up with hubby at 5 AM. It was raining and perfect sleeping weather. I felt much more refreshed this morning after a good night’s sleep.

It’s easier for me to eat breakfast when it’s not so early in the morning. Today, I ate a Bagel thin egg sandwich—a little different than my recipe because I had to use what I had in the house. I also had a glass of milk and 1/2 cup of strawberries for 10 points total.

Before signing in to work, I made my iced latte for 1 point.

Later on in the morning, I had a Fiber One bar for 4 points.

For lunch, I had a baked potato topped with broccoli and sharp cheddar cheese for 6 points.

And for a little something sweet, I had banana soft serve with a VitaBrownie for 3 points.

We’ve been trying to use up food that’s in the house before getting groceries—so I’m finding lots of things in the freezer. Smile

On my last break, I ate 2 Cuties clementines for 0 points.

I ended up working a couple of hours overtime tonight. I’d rather get off early on Friday- but we’ll see! Smile

For supper, I had stuffed pasta with spaghetti sauce, garlic toast, and green beans for 9 points.

I have been craving ice cream for the past few days and didn’t want to eat it before weigh in—so I had some today for 6 points, including a little caramel syrup.

I have been craving sweets like crazy lately. Not sure why. Later on in the evening I had a Reese’s PB cup for 6 points.

Yeh, probably wasn’t worth 6 points- but it was good. I also had a banana later- but I didn’t get a picture.

I have been feeling like I want to eat all of the time lately—sometimes I’m hungry, other times I know that I’m not really hungry, just probably trying to fill an emotional void that I can’t quite put my finger on. Why can’t I just be a normal person? lol

So I’m ending out the day using 11 weekly points today—a little excessive, but it won’t happen everyday!


  1. I get wicked cravings for sweets too! I usually make room for a clif bar it kind of tastes like a chocolate bar but its healthy :)

  2. Do you think you may be eating too much and that's why you don't seem to be losing? I know that ww says that eating all activity and weekly points don't work for everyone maybe try to only eat your daily points and see if that makes a dif... I know you didn't ask for advice just trying to help!!!

  3. hugs and thoughts of defining that emotional void today.

    It's hard but for me when I just SIT WITH THE FEELING and try to puzzzzle it through i can sometimes figure the IM SO HUNGRY!! out.



  4. I have been Sooo Hungry lately too!

  5. I've been quite the hungry girl lately too. Reeses Pieces is one of my fav's! And I've been eating ice cream every day. The Light kind, and only 1 serving but still!

  6. I bet you've already dropped that .4! You have a wonderful attitude Alissa...keep doing what you're doing!!! Why can't you be normal? Know what? You ARE!! :) And you are also an inspiration!!! Take care.

  7. It's so refreshing to hear you say you gained a tiny bit--and you know you've done everything right so whatever! You're so right and I'm so impressed with that attitude. You rock!

  8. Gains are frustrating. Just make the adjustments you know you need to make and keep on going!
