You Lose Some

Pounds (one down from yesterday, inexplicably, after going overboard on Cheat Day). And my son's long-distance GF just broke up with him again. He seems okay. I sometimes I wish I could make him 7 years old again with glasses, but of course that is not the normal course of nature and it shouldn't be. Sigh.

Thank you, my dears, for weighing in yesterday. Some South Beach fans and some WW converts. I am actually on the Beach-y side myself, and was planning a SB version of WW (no reason you can't do that, right?) It would be hard for me to figure the points without actually joining, so for this week I plan to track and report my calories. I don't know where WW points would be for me exactly-- I know it doesn't translate perfectly-- but I am going to go for under 1600 a day (which seemed so onerous a few months ago, but seems very doable these days). Today once I eat my pork chop and asparagus, unless I forgot something crucial, I should end up under 1500. Easy because I ate so much yesterday I wasn't hungry today till after Zumba at 1:30. I had sufficient bra coverage and an empty stomach so I got in a good one. My instructor did point at me midway like something from Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but it just turned out that my shoelace was untied. Whew. I fancy myself not deficient in It, but I'll tell you, in Zumba I feel pretty square.

  1. Unexpected losses are pretty awesome, except when they are ld gfs. My son tends to have ld gfs also. I don't understand that, but that is how it is. Like you, I miss him being much younger. I am glad he is growing up, but I miss a lot of the things that happened when he was younger. It was great when Dad could do no wrong. :-)

  2. I think you can convert WW very easily to South Beach - just have to mind the protein portions. WW is all about veggies of course, but low carb choices work splendidly. As does Alli.

    I lost gobs of weight in a short time with WW and Alli... mostly skipping a lot of carbs unless they were fiber packed. Easy-peasy.

  3. I think feeling like a square in Zumba is pretty normal. I know I do.

  4. You could borrow my son - he's 5 with glasses. Your line about girlfriends just makes me want to hold on to him for dear life.

  6. I like how you adjust the different programs to your needs. That's great for thinking outside the box.

    Hope his heart mends well...

  7. I wonder if it's legal to mix SB and WW. You might need a special license. :)

    Hugs to your son from me. Break-ups are awful.

  8. I love those surprise losses! Congratulations on however it happened. I too wish my older kids were still small. Then the only heartbreak would be when their brother doesn't want to play cars with them! :)
