down, but not out.

Hi all. Yes, 2 posts in one day. What HAS come over me?

After weigh in and posting I was planning my 'no one will know about this - it's Saturday - I will make up for it later chocolate.' However you will all be pleased to know this never happened.

I went to my favorite food inspiration - Trader Joes - which is a partly organic, whole food store with many many good meatless products and awesome stuff in general. It was time for a change from Aldi - my routine of meals from there had become a bore to me. I was inspired. I did not buy any chocolate. I may not have long left of the journey here in the states but it WILL continue in the UK. Probably on the US plan. I can't figure out why they are different. Why is is sat fat in the UK and total fat grams here? Why does fiber have a positive effect on points here but not in the UK? I don't know.

Anyway here is what I bought...

It includes sour dough bread (oh San Francisco how I miss you - great sour dough bakery there), meatless chicken strips, meatless meatballs, kettle chips (sweet and salt mix, yet to try them), organic apple slices, quinoa , wholewheat pizza dough, some fruit and organic cereal bars, wholewheat pasta and vodka pasta sauce. I feel refreshed and renewed and no longer bored. Yay. I will keep going.

stuck. in. a. rut.

I am so tired of being stuck in this rut. I have hovered around the 12/13lbs loss mark for....let me see..well April 3rd I hit 13lbs loss and today I am at 12.6 loss. I feel like I am going nowhere. I have, really, one official weigh in left and I feel like giving up. Almost like what will one more week help me to achieve?

This week I don't know what I did wrong. I really don't. I only went to the gym once but stuck to my points. I just don't know what I have to do anymore to lose this weight and I'm sick and tired of it. I lost 0.2lbs. Really? I mean, what's the point?

I did get my 16 week charm - here you get a kind of 'staying power' charm. This almost made me feel worse. 16 weeks and only 12.6lbs loss. I'm bitterly disapointed. This is not where I expected to be, and with a little over 3 weeks until we fly home, it has hit me. This isn't what I wanted.
