Today was weigh in day. I was very apprehensive because last week showed such a large loss. Could it have been a fluke?? I stuck to the program just the way I have been, but when I stepped on the scale and looked down, it showed that I had gained 2.8 pounds from last week. I was so disappointed, could last week have been a fluke?? I don't really know. But time marches on, and so do I. I'm not giving up.
Last night we made Weight Watchers Macaroni and Cheese with Broccoli. It was delicious, and the rest of the family must have thought so too, since Rod had 3 helpings! One serving, however was 7 points. Right now those points aren't a big deal, but as I lose weight I will lose points and that could be a problem. But in my Scarlet O'Hara mode, I won't think about that today.
This morning was really chilly for this time of year - 39 degrees. It was the perfect morning for oatmeal. I had 1/2 cup left over from Sunday, and I still had pumpkin with spices added that I had stored in the refrigerator. So I took 1/4 cup of the pumpkin, added it to the oatmeal and heated it. I added some milk, and mmmm it was so good! Fall is my favorite time of year - partly because I love apples and pumpkin. I was born in the fall, I was married in the fall, and I guess that if Mother Nature asked me to help with the seasons, I'd pick fall. Soup, apple butter, pumpkin pies, football games, and hot cocoa - what more could a person asked for.
