Many of you know I've lost weight with Weight Watchers in the past year and a half but I've been struggling with my weight here since I came back from my Alaska cruise. It started on the cruise and I came home with a few extra pounds and have not been able to get them off. I have three mindsets when it comes to my weight. The first one is I just don't care and I'll sit down and eat a whole pint of United Dairy Farmers Cookie Dough ice cream or I'll go for the really hard stuff and eat a pint of Greater's Mocha Chocolate Chip or I'll hang out with my two good friends Ben and Jerry(you get the picture). I'm not there (yet). The second mode is being determine to take the weight off. I know what to do on Weight Watchers, I've done it before but 90% (maybe 100%) is in the mind, you have to want to do it. I'm not in that frame of mind right now but I want to so bad to be back there. And the third mindset is the maintaining part. I've been doing the maintaining longer then I was doing the losing and I know exactly what to do to maintain. So I've been in this maintaining mode with going over a little and I can see the scales sliding into the first mode if I'm not careful. And with the holidays coming, I'm afraid of going way off. Did anyone see the movie The Devil Wears Prada? There's a scene in the movie where one girl says to the Anne Hathaway character "I'm just one stomach flu away from my ideal weight." NOW I know that's not the way to lose weight but I did laugh at that line because I understand the mindset if I am being totally honest with you guys. So anyway here are my new jeans I want to wear for Christmas, just look at how pretty they are. They do fit me right now but I am not a tight jean person so I like them have a bit more room. I'm determine that these jeans will fit better by Christmas. Hey, it's as good of an incentive as anything else. Wish me luck. And with that whining done with, don't forget to go here and sign up for a chance to win Paula Deen's Christmas cookbook. I know there is something not quite right about giving away a Paula Deen cookbook and going on about my weight. But I'm not sure how many of you guys would want a Weight Watchers cookbook. Though they do have some great recipes in the Weight Watchers cookbook.
And just because I could not resist putting this picture up. Maddie has been making this funny face all the time, kind of like a frowning smiling face. It just cracks me up and she knows it so now she does it to make me laugh. She's coming to spend the night tonight and have a slumber party with Grams and Gramps. Hope you have a great weekend!
