Fat Ass Friday #3

It's time for the weekly update! I didn't eat as well as I wanted to this week, due to the fact that I was really broke, so I pretty much bought myself a loaf of bread and ate Peanut Butter and Jelly.  However, here are the positive things.  I am a shaper-top addict.  If I go out in public, chances are I'm wearing one, I just like the security it provides.  I went to the corner store without my shaper top, and I didn't feel like I was bulging over my jeans! I felt thinner! I'm even wearing my little sundress today and I feel pretty and like I've lost a little bit (however tiny an amount) of size.

Yes it's a bad bathroom mirror shot, but I look pretty!

I realized all these good things though.  I have been a NON-soda drinker for 6 months now! Also, I haven't had Candy in weeks.  I still crave the candy now and again, but the willpower is strong.  I don't crave soda at all, mostly just tea and water-which is good! :) Yay!

Anyway, in case you missed it, here are some of this week's highlights!
Things I recommend you look at:
 My question for you guys this week:
Have any of you done Weight Watchers?
Do you like it?

Also, how did you do this week?

I am starting week 5 of Weight Watchers... I have lost a total of 15 lbs in the first 4 weigh ins...
I have to tell you- I love it! I love the fact that I can eat WHATEVER I want- I just have to count the points... I do not feel deprived. It is working!!

i tried ww and hated it because of all the rules/numbers/etc. but i know some people need that! and you look gorgeous! i need to try out some shapewear!

You look great Angie, I love that dress! I don't wear shape wear BUT I do wear camis with the built in bras under EVERYTHING, I feel like I'm spewing out and jiggling all over if I don't. I honestly don't know how people can go without SOMETHING, it just seems uncomfortable to me.

Good for you your accomplishments, looking back proves that you have the willpower to become a more healthy person!

I did Weight Watchers a couple of years ago, when I was about the weight I'm at now. I didn't like it. I didn't like the points system, I didn't like the meetings and more importantly I didn't like the cost. However, A LOT of people I know have had really great success with it so if you're looking for a specific diet plan program it's worth checking out. If you're just looking for the support or motivation then I would suggest looking into other weight loss groups that are out there.

I know all about the poverty and unhealthy eating. But don't forget I have that post about eating on $5/day, and how you can still do that somewhat healthily (as you did, avoiding processed foods.....you go, girl!). :D

I lost a pound last weel, which surprised me given how much I cheated on food and booze last weekend. But I'm exercising every day this week so far, and keeping my caloric intake to 1500/day, so hopefully it wasn't a fluke loss.

I DID try Weight Watchers for almost a year.
It took a lot of my money.
I didn't feel supported in either of the two groups that I joined (nobody made an effort to befriend me, though the staff was nice).
I followed EVERYTHING to the letter because I really wanted to lose weight.
I gained ten pounds.

So I can't in good conscience recommend that route, though I've been told it has worked for other gals. *shrug*

I can recommend Curves for Women, if you have one nearby. It's not nutrition so much, more workout and support, but I lost weight and inches both times I've been signed up there. Best of luck!

Oh, and also...what brand shapewear do you use? I have none, and want to try it out....thanks! :D

You look great!! Love that dress.
I did Weight Watchers on my own a couple times and lost quite a bit both times, but I didn't manage to keep it off. I don't think it was the right fit for me. It's been amazing for other people I know though.
