i am so rockin' WW right now and the scale is rewarding me nicely - it showed a 2.6 pound loss this morning... whoo hooo carrots! gotta love the eTools thing though, it congratulates you and then reminds you that even though you may lose a lot in the beginning, its normal to lose 1 pound or less in the future - what a buzz kill... but seriously, i love the fact that i can still eat my friday bagel & cream cheese, partake in a work potluck, drink wine, and still lose weight... even though i've been down this road before, this is the first time i'm feeling that the program CAN work when i WORK the program... and this can be said w/any program i know, so it just goes to show you that if you stick with something - good results can happen... :o)

running was H A R D last night - we didn't do the track because of some lacrosse meet so we ran on a path instead (1 mile and then 1 mile of intervals - fast/slow)... i thought i was going to die because its not all flat but i finished and i'm so proud of myself... for any of you out there who think they can't run - you can! i am continuously amazed at how far i can push myself each week and for those that run 8-10K, i am envious because i know difficult that must be... maybe i'll get there someday, who knows... ;o)

work is slowing down and the big event happens today/tonight - i'm hoping i don't have to attend but we'll see what my boss says later this afternoon... plan b is bowling w/eric and his friends so i'd rather do that instead - i even picked a healthy, mediterranean place to grab dinner... this week is going to be challenging point-wise because i have a 'cinco de mayo' party on saturday and i know there will be tons of yummy food/drink there - i will just have plan really well for the weekend... i can do it! :o)

i came across this really interesting site a while back and mind you, its not for everyone but if you like reading anonymous letters - check this out... some entries are so depressing and sad but others are quite romantic... :o)

and for you ice cream lovers, baskin-robbins is having a 31-cent scoop night TONIGHT from 5–10pm...

happy hump day...

CONGRATS on the loss!!! This is my 2nd time on WW too and this time its just clicking. I love that I can have all the things I love, just in smaller amounts.

I LOVE trail running. For many years hubby and I stopped all the road running and just rain trails in the woods near our house. Its hard at first but its just so satisfying and beautiful. I miss it (no longer live hear any trails :( )

Anne  – (2:32 PM)

Congrats on the Weight Loss, it always feels so flipping fantastic when you get on the scale and you see a loss!

WW is great isn't it? I've NEVER been able to follow any diet, but I can follow WW, because like you said, I can eat what I want!

So glad it's working for you, congrats.

THat is so motivational. I have gotten back to the gym and Im doing a version of the run/walk on the treadmill. I am up to walking 5 and running 5, then I walk again and finally the last 5 I run, Im proud to say I push right thru and it feels great after. My goal is to go the whole 25 min running on the treadmill. I have been doing free wieght training as well. So I feel good and also doing WW. It does give back as much as you put in...I haven't been putting in, and now i have this week and have lossed 1 pound this week so far. weigh in is Friday...Im happy I didnt gain..Good Blog you are so great and I love reading it every morning. Your inspirational!!!!!
