Aweigh With A Self Portrait

Yes, this is me.  The day after the Super Bowl and all the munchies involved.

I am in a carb stupor.  If I fell out of a tree, I wouldn't even know it.

And Mondays are the days that I usually weigh myself.

Not happing

I have decided that February is a month of grace from Weight Watcher points.  I will still do my best to eat right and kind of sort of count my points but I am not going to hold myself accountable to them.

February will be a month of Valentine's Day delights and traveling up North.  There will be much going on and I don't want to stress about WW points or feel guilty about eating a few choice dainty morsel sweets.

So I say aweigh with weighing myself for now!

  1. "Aweigh with Weighing" how fun...you do make me smile, Gina. I think it is a most excellent idea to not stress about the celebrations in February and counting points. Have yourself a merry little holiday and enjoy those little treats. This Aussie gal loves the sweet fellow in the photo. Aren't Koalas the cutest.

  2. I totally agree, Gina. You need this time to be able to enjoy yourself...house viewing will seem not so daunting if you don't need to feel guilty about eating something that will throw you over your points for the day or week. You go, Girlfriend. xx

  3. It seems that's a smart thing to do. Otherwise, we (meaning me) are likely to binge out with really stupid stuff. But if you're doing it for special things or travel -- well, you deserve a pass!

  7. Good idea. I think being kind to yourself is important too, and not beat yourself up.
    Enjoy your house hunting and spending time with your hubby.

  8. Have a wonderful trip and time house hunting with your husband! I think you will still be mindful of what you are eating, but without the stress of counting points. Thinking of you!

  9. I agree, Gina, you have enough stress going on without worrying about a little treat (or two :) I haven't been on-line much this month so I am trying to catch up - I see you are going North to house-hunt. I hope your trip goes smoothly and that you can enjoy some good weather, too. Hugs xo Karen

    1. Thank you, Karen. It does look like it will be in the low 40's during the day which isn't bad. I'm glad to see you blogging again! You've been missed! XO

  10. I think that is a good idea, although I would have weighed myself Sunday morning before the super bowl goodies just to have an idea of where I was prior, LOL! I didn't watch what I ate at all over our 3 days away and I gained 3 pounds, but I have lost a couple since being home so I am almost back to where I was before hand.

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
