Five Down

Tried spaghetti squash tonight with dinner.  It was just ...meh, you know?  I don't know what it's supposed to taste like, but it kind of reminded me of cauliflower maybe?  And I don't know if I cooked it long enough - an hour at 375.  I think I expected it to be more "noodle-ly" but instead it had a light crunch, almost like a tiny shred of apple.  Maybe I needed to cook it a few minutes longer or at a higher temperature?  Anyway, it wasn't bad, just different.

So, five days of WeightWatchers complete.  I have to say that I've felt pretty hungry all week.  That's not a good thing for me because I'll be tempted more often, but maybe it'll go away.  We'll see what the scale says tomorrow to know how beneficial it's been.  Since I'm already 5 months into this weight loss journey, I'm not expecting a whole lot, but of course, I would like to see a lower number at the very least.  On the positive side, I've made a lot of healthy decisions knowing I needed to stay within my points.  Today, I actually made my goal of 31!  I also exercised and earned a few more points - so much so that I have balanced out all the overages from the last 5 days, without needing to dip into those weekly points.

Yesterday - 100 posts - wha-whaaaaat?!?  I'm pretty stoked.  I know for a fact that if I hadn't been telling you all about this stuff, I would've quit long ago and probably be heavier than ever.  So thanks for being there!


  1. I actually prefer my spaghetti squash with a crunchy texture - I made chili mac and pour that over my spaghetti squash, with cheese and hot sauce - I like the salty/sweet combo of the squash to the chili and cheese.

    Make sure you eat all your points - even the activity ones and flex points - that's why they are there! Happy 100 posts!!

    1. Thanks Biz! I was thinking I had to eat daily points but would lose more if I saved the other. I'll try eating them all this week...
