Weight Watchers - week 14 update

It's been a while since I've posted a Weight Watchers update. As of yesterday's weigh in, I'm down 16.4 pounds. I'm currently obsessed with getting jeans that fit. The droopy drawers look is funny, but not very attractive. (Can someone tell that to all the guys who wear their pants around their asses and have boxers showing?) Not all days are easy to stay on plan. Last week I tried the Simply Filling Technique for 3 days. Friday was lunch at the restaurant run by a local cooking school. I planned ahead, because I knew I wanted the pork schnitzel with braised red cabbage and the chocolate mousse for dessert. Worth every bite. By the way, it's a serious bargain too. $10 for a 3 course meal. Check out cooking schools in your area and find out if they have a teaching restaurant.

On the recipe front, I made buttermilk roast chicken last night. I read about it over at Running Off The Reeses. It looked good, it smelled good, it tasted like regular roast chicken. So, I won't be posting it, but check out Smitten Kitchen if it sounds awesomesauce to you.

Finally, I've made a concious decision not to run the Hot Chocolate 15k this weekend. I'm not making any excuses. I'm not up with my mileage, and we have a lot going on. I'll still do some races this year, but I'm focused on other things right now. My mother in law's illness has made The Aussie and I to start to focus on new priorities.


  1. I teach saggy pantsed boys and I tell them all the time how ridiculous they look. Doesn't help. Congrats on over 16 pounds!

  2. Sounds like you have a lot of serious in your life. How about a little... not serious?

    not that you need my .02 but I think you made the right choice.

  4. Good job on the over 16 pounds! That's awesome! We won't actually be out at HC either! Sometimes life happens - glad you are in NO way beating yourself up over it! Sorry to here about your MIL! :-/

  5. I tell my students (well, the boys) to pull their pants up ALL day long!! It drives me CRAZY and I tell them how ridiculous they look but they tell me I am crazy!!!

    CONGRATS on the weight loss!!
    and HUGS!! I think you made right choice about the race!
    AND I totally get the new priority thing - I have been going through that myself!
