My Fat Club Challenge for the day: an engagement party for friends. That was the expected challenge. The unexpected challenge was going out to dinner with the girls after the party.
Overall, I don't think I did too bad. I was aware of my portions and my food intake the entire day and that helped keep me in check. I mean, come on. We all know that if you put a table full of dessert and a cooler full of beer in front of me, it's a dangerous situation.
However, I did not eat any cupcakes. Let me repeat that: I did not eat ANY cupcakes. That alone should qualify me for a Fat Club Gold Star (or a cupcake with a gold star on top).
Anyweigh, I think all my weekly points are gone, but let's tally it up and see, shall we?

Weekly Flex Points remaining: 23.5

1 serving (3/4 cup) Honey Nut Cheerios, 2 points - 23

Am I okay with this? Hell yeah! I had fun today. Celebration of a good friend finding 'the one' and a girl's night full of chick flicks and bachelorette party planning. That's a good day in my book.
Plus, did I mention that I did not eat ANY cupcakes?! :)

My challenge today: baking cookies. I promised to bake some for a friend's engagement party and spent the morning baking up some delicious Lemon Cake Cookies as well as the dough for my famous Chocolate Chip cookies. When I go home tonight, I will be baking those as I didn't have time to do it today before work.
I am proud to say that I only sampled one Lemon Cake Cookie and only 2 cookie sized wads of Chocolate Chip Cookie dough.
I'm pretty impressed with myself.
MB and I grilled some Tandoori Chicken today for lunch and it was yummy. You can get the recipe here .
Due to my baking all morning, I didn't do a very good job of planning my dinner for tonight. That's why there are more snacks than anything else where there should be dinner. Fat Club Fail. (sigh) I am HUNGRY right now. If I am still hungry when I leave work, I will munch on a salad or an apple instead of binging on cookies. No matter how great the temptation.
Fat Club Swear. :)

Thursday 5/20/10

I am still in the process of developing a table/spreadsheet that will make this information look a little better. Until then, this is the boring, unattractive version of what I ate today.
I felt full while at work due to my veggie snack and didn't eat dinner until around
10pm because we got busy. It's okay though because my belly wasn't even growling. The veggies sustained me.

Hi peeps!
If you've followed me over from Girly Bitz, I'm so happy to see you. Thanks for coming over here and kicking my ass!
If you stumbled upon me some other way, then hello. It's nice to meet you. Hope you kick off your shoes and stay awhile. I may be able to offer you some delicious fat free, sugar free tasty treats.
You know, because this is all about fighting The Fatness and all.
Sheesh. Get with the program, peeps.
So, you should probably look over to the side there and read 'What is the blog all about anyway?' if you want a little background.
Did you read it?
I am a former Fat Club (aka Weight Watchers) member who had great success with the program in 2004. I dropped out when I met MB and returned many, many times since with minimal results. Seems I just couldn't commit.
I've been (or at least felt like) a fat girl for as long as I can remember. The Fatness has made me feel like less of a person for way too long. This blitz* is it. The last battle against The Fatness. I am getting back on track and staying on track. No more farting around.
I want to get back into my skinny clothes and be the healthy, confident person I know I can be.
For the next 30 days, I will be posting a daily journal of what I eat and how I exercise. I will be tracking WW points, fruit and veggie servings, water intake and maybe some other things. I will also be posting what I learn along the weigh (teeheehee) and how I'm doing with the blitz.
This is going to be where I am held accountable for what goes into my fat face and what comes off of my fat ass.
If you think I'm doing well, please tell me. If you think I'm a big fat failure, tell me that too. If you have tips or other stuff to share, please do that. I love feedback. Support is everything.
I will be back later to post my first journal along with beginning stats.

*Chibi suggested the title for this new blog. Once she mentioned it, I couldn't get it out of my head. She's pretty much a genius. You should go check her out. Thanks, Chibi. :)
