We're Still Here! Days 5-9

Sorry for the lapse in posting.

The beginning of the month is extremely busy for the kittehs.

The Kitteh's are still working the diet, or is it that the diet is working us?
It's hard to tell these days.


We have been totally committed to the diet. We are very proud of our accomplishments. For a tad over a week we have tracked ALL our food. Everything. Every little crumb, morsel, bite, taste, E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. And let me tell you, it's been little crumbs, morsels and bites.

We have diligently drank our 64 oz of water each day.

The side effect of which has been a constant trail to the restroom.

We have faithfully exercised 3 hours/week.

Now, I know that doesn't sound like much, but let me tell you, it HURT. Either the 3 years since we first joined WW has been very unkind to us, or we totally let ourselves go. Because there has been nothing easy about the exercise we have been doing. Before, the exercise came easy. We would walk for miles and feel invigorated afterwards! Now, walking seems to have been a challenge that we were not anticipating!

After 9 and now, almost 10 days into our challenge, we cannot honestly decide if we prefer counting calories or WW points. We are doing both and we find that it is intriguing to see how we end the day calorie and point wise.

We don't really manage our calories/points wisely. We tend to skimp during the day, to save the calories/points for dinner, only to find that we have more than enough at dinner time. We end up with points to spare, and yet, we cannot seem to make ourselves splurge a little bit during the day to stave off the hunger.


We have also found that we do not function well mentally on a diet.

We have a hard time focusing on anything but the growling of our bellehs.

In conclusion, we have learned that no matter how healthy, how filling, how tasty the food is, our brains still crave cheezburgers.

Today is day 10...80 more to go.
