52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Week (weak?) One....

So the first of our 52 weeks is upon us. I have sent out emails that will allow you to be an "author" of this blog, to everyone that has responded so far. If you sent an email but haven't received a email back from me email me again and I will resend the author invite. If everyone who hasn't had a chance to do a post introducing yourself and what your goals are that would be great. My hubby Tom will be joining us to add some testosterone to the mix as will hopefully my brother who will play the role of contributing medical editor (Dr. Nurse). I will give an update on my past 2 days. Yesterday was easy to do the WW points and I didn't even feel very hungry today was another beast all together (hence the "weak one") I have stayed within my points today but have felt famished for the main portion of the day. I have found that for me the first 3-4 days of WW is hardest and then after that it is much easier to stay within my points. Anybody have any good tips for low-cal/ low-points snacks? My children would appreciate it....

P.S. I have been looking for a tool that will calculate calories for my recipes (They have one on the WW website that I love) and just found one HERE!

  1. Hang in there Dani. You will get less hungry. One thing I find that helps me, is I drink a metamucil (orange flavor) every morning. I don't mind the taste, it fills me up and keeps things moving (you know what I mean). I think it helps a lot. Dad takes the pill form.

    Snacks...Love the Skinny Cow 2 point bars (chocolate drizzled on the outside), also you can have a LOT of jello pudding (fat free-sugar free), and it tastes soooo decadent.

    Fruit is probably the best and healthiest, apple slices, etc. But I am not very good about eating as much fruit as I should, just doesn't seem like a treat (though I know it should).

    I used to use the 100 calorie packs of cookies, but I think they are too easy to eat extras. So if I really want I cookie I just eat 1 or 2 of what I want, and then give the rest away so I am not tempted. (I can't stop at just eating 1 or 2, if they are in the house).
