I got a pair of jeans (Target, sz 18) for christmas from my mom.  I was able to start wearing them immediately.  They're starting to get really baggy and driving me crazy.

So, I went to Old Navy tonight to see if I could find anything (Target is 30+ miles away).  I tried on several different styles of size 18s and they all looked like I had painted them on - even tight in the calves.

It sucks.  I thought I was an 18 but I guess I'm a 20.

Starting Day 7

I had kinda been planning to quit for a couple of months.  I just loved it too much.  Very few of my friends smoke and my husband smokes but my parents don't and I won't smoke in front of them.  We are living with my parents right now to pay off some debt and save $$ for a new house.  Smoking made me become inflexible and dishonest.  I wouldn't ride in other people's cars cause I had to smoke (even short distances). I didn't want to take long trips with my family because I couldn't smoke around them.  And it took me years to finally admit to my mom that I was a smoker?. Now I can't admit to her that I'm quitting because I'm embarrassed to remind her that I was a smoker?.

Long story short (LOL) I had to. Now I've got a sinus infection - Boo!   Sometimes I feel like that commercial where people forget how to do everyday things because they don't have a cigarette in their hands.

I'm doing great with WW staying OP.  This time is so different for me.  I feel different. I'm not trying to diet like I was before and I'm accepting that this is my life and I have to take care of me.

So today is Day 2 of quitting smoking.

I have a raging headache and want to eat EVERYTHING... but I'm not because i've already eaten my points for the day.

I made myself go to the gym this afternoon even though it was the last thing I wanted to do today. "Just do it till it becomes habit."

Hoping Day 3 is easier!

Dustin and I went to eat at a local seafood restaurant last night. I usually order the crab cakes with a side of fried pickles but decided I didn't have the points for that. So I got seared tuna, steamed broccoli and a baked potato. It was delicious and now I'm craving it!

When we got home I still felt a little snackish and had 2 points left. Instead of going for the chips and cookies he keeps around, I fixed some coffee and had my favorite creamer. It was just enough to satisfy and guilt free too!

I'm at work right now sad
It's not bad, I'm just not in the mood to be here. 
I've stayed OP for several weeks now that the dang holidays are over!! 
I hated not having my normal routine. 
Lately I've been staying up way too late and then not getting up early 
to go walk... this has to stop! now!  
Good news is that I've been walking at lunch or after work to make up 
for it... I feel weird when I don't get my APs in now smile... 
that's definitly a NSV for me because I used to be the LAZIEST 
person on earth and now I like to move as much as possible!
I don't really know why but this go-round of WW feels different... 
like I will actually do it this time. Very exciting for me!!!
