What do you see in the mirror?

When I look in the mirror I really don't see much of a change.  My face looks thinner.  I have dimples in front of my ears.  I now have a turkey wobbler.  When I look at my body I just don't see the difference.  I know I'm smaller.  I've lost inches and pounds and my clothes are fitting a lot looser.  I'm actually going to have to retire some of the pants I wore this spring because they are TOO BAGGY!!  When I look in the mirror I still see the rolls that are still there.  My stomach is still too big.  My rings keep twisting around on my fingers, but I still can't get them off.  So what do you see when you look in the mirror?

I went to the apple orchard today and got some honey crisp apples and some fresh cider.  I'm not sure I can have the cider yet due to my challenge.  I might have to wait until Tuesday to enjoy it.  So far I've gotten all my water in and all my bonus points.

Eating Friday and Saturday was under points again.  I just can't get the points in.  Friday"s breakfast was Rice Chex with almond milk and splenda.  For lunch I had 1 slice of bacon, a friend egg and 2 slices of toast.  For dinner we grilled some pork loin chops and I made mini pierogies, green giant healthy weight veggies and some cauliflower. A very filling meal.  For a snack after the football game I had a snack bar.  On Saturday we had for breakfast, 1 slice of bacon 1 fried egg, 2 slices of toast and a smoothie.  For lunch I had leftovers from  Fridays dinner minus the pierogies.  For dinner we went out for dinner and I ordered rigatoni and ate half of it and a side salad.  I had a small piece of bread.  I had 79 ounces of water both days.  Total points+ for Friday was 21 and Saturday 23.

I think we're going to a walk in the park after dinner to get some exercise in for today.


  1. I noticed that you were not getting all your points in, did you know that can hinder or slow down your weight loss ? My old leader told us that.

    That is good question...I need to look in the mirror.

  2. Yes, I know I'm not getting my points in. I'm eating until I'm full and I just can't seem to get them in. Once winter hits and my menu changes I should do better getting them in. Right now I'm enjoying fresh fruits and veggies and since they are zero points+ I'm getting full on them, but not getting the points in.
