I got serious this week! I had a chiropractor appointment on Monday. He has me taking AF Betafood for arm pain. He says the arm pain may be signaling a gallbladder problem. The AF Betafood is helping, so he confirmed that it is a gallbladder problem. He said it's good news that I know what is causing the problem, but bad news that I know what is causing the problem. He said I know what I need to do. I drink too much pop and eat too many sweets. Last time he told me how bad nutrasweet is--like a poison, so I stopped drinking Diet Pepsi and started drinking regular, but way too much of it. I have cut down to 2 a day. I have to have one first in thing in the morning and I have 1 at night.
After my appointment on Monday, I stopped by Weight Watchers since they were open for walk-in's all day. I weighed 178 and decided okay, time to get serious about this again. I got a kit with the fast foot companion and regular food companion. I also got a cookbook which I need to start using. I lost my book with my previous weights in it, but they gave me a new one since I haven't been there yet this year. Where did the time go? Last time I went I know I weighed 163.
I have been counting my points all week. I did eat out a Grandma's Tacos Wednesday night. I did bring my book in to look up what I should have. I had a taco salad, and yes I did eat the bowl. I counted the points. I didn't eat the salsa and chips that was served before the meal. Last night I ate 3 pieces of pizza and dipped it in garlic butter sauce and I did have an ice cream cone too. I went over in points, but today is a new day. I didn't do too bad. I am down to 175.5 since Monday! I haven't even been exercising either. Hopefully it gets warm and stops raining so I can start walking again!
