week 1 ww weigh in

I wasn't sure if I would lose any weight because of Thanksgiving. Actually thought I would gain some. but I lost!!! I am down 3 pounds! Woop! Woop! Very excited! I just saved all of my weekly points for Thursday so that helped. I have been looking through the points book just becoming aware of the points for foods and beverages I commonly eat. Hopefully I will have another successful week this week!

to decorate or not?

I am going to be honest. I have no desire to decorate the house this year for the Holidays. We barely get to celebrate them anyway because we work so much. I will barely see my husband this month because when I am going to work he will be home. And when I come home he will be at work. Especially in December - that is the busiest part of the year for him at work.
And it's not like anyone will come over and see the decorations because we will be working so much. Last year I took the Christmas Tree down on Christmas day. yes - the same day. The only ones who might enjoy the tree is the dog who can lift his leg on it and the presents and the cat who tries to grab at the ornaments at the bottom. So as of now - I am going to say no tree this year.

I came home Friday night to open up a gift box consisting of this -

I received this beautiful frame and gift card from Merry the gift fairy!

It totally made my day!

On to another note, Saturday I started Weight Watchers. I paid for 11 weeks so I couldn'y use having no money as an excuse for not going to meetings. I did find out that Weight Watchers is changing their program on Dec.4 so I will be getting all new materials then and relearning how to use the system. I plan on documenting my successes and challenges with WW every saturday aftet the meeting. I do need suggestions for easy recipes. any suggestions?
