Good morning...time for a post from me!

Good morning friends!

Oh my goodness, I just realized I haven't been on the blogs for a few days. Seems that I have succumbed to the throws of a nasty cold...yuck! :( I just haven't had the energy to sit at the computer. I'm hoping it passes soon. I really hate being under the weather! I had plans to hit the gym today but I am just too tired & congested , my throat is so sore & the nose is in a constant state of running so I think I will hold off until things improve. Not trying to be a whiner here so sorry if it comes off that way. Just wanted to let you all know why I haven't been around. I did try to post on your blogs to get caught up with whats new with you all. My heart goes out to Pattie & her family. There are no words to describe such a  catastrophic loss. You are in my thoughts & prayers Pattie.

Not much new here on the diet front. I am trying to eat "clean" & rid my body of processed food. I do love my turkey bacon though and nitrites & all, I am still gonna eat it! Weight watchers has a part of their weight loss plan called "Simply Filling". Now I know many of you girls are BFC girls, and you know that I am a WW girl, so oblige me here for a moment. The Simply Filling Technique is where you eat mainly "Power Foods" which are whole unprocessed foods. Fruits, veggies, lean proteins low fat dairy & 2 tsp of healthy oils/day. It has worked great for me in the past , where I have lost 3-4#/week. The hardest part is the preparation. When you are eating "good" you have to be prepared & have those good foods on hand so that is my plan today. Since I am not going to the gym today, my plan is to prep some healthy meals for the week with Simply Filling foods. I started eating SF on Sunday and I got on the scale this am and am down 2# already! Now, mind you, when weigh in day on Sat rolls around, we could be talking a different story because my weight fluctuates 1-2# daily (which might I interject here drives me CRAZY!!!! Sigh...I know its a girl thing but still) I feel better eating this way and there is some flexibility with the program as you have 49 extra points that you can use toward foods that aren't power foods. So we shall see what happens. I am tired of spinning in neutral and it is time to SHAKE THINGS UP!!!!!!!!! My goal is to lose 5# this month to stay on target for reaching my goal weight of 150# by June 20th.

So that's my thoughts for today. I hope you are all having a great week!!!
Keep on Keepin on Girls!!! Its a NEW YEAR and we are on our way to being our BEST ever!!!!
Hugs to all my peeps!


  1. Great goals Sherri...WW is a great program too and has helped a lot of people.
    We're rooting for you!

  2. Hi Sherri,

    That SF sounds good and I have a feeling by Saturday you will surprise yourself.
    Have a great day :-)

  3. Ms. Sherri, you are rocking the New Year! I like your ideas of putting the pictures up on my fridge. I usually eat out so I would have to take my refrigerator with me:) Kidding, kind of!
    The simply filling is different? I can see where it would make sense? Kind of like eat this/not that?
    That is a bummer that you can't have my friend Frito/or Wavy at your house. I don't know why, but I can just put a few on my plate and put them away and I am good. This whole thing is so mental! Mentally, I am defeated by toffee, but not by Mr. Frito:) Crazy!!!
    You will make your goals, I just know it!

  4. I am so glad to hear that you are making progress! It doesn't matter what plan you are on, as long as it's working for you. Have a great night!

  5. Sherri, I LOVE the idea of Simply Filling! I've sort of incorporated the idea of that into the BFC too. I'm a huge believer in "real" foods. Those that are not processed and as fresh as possible. They say we should always shop in the outer aisles at the grocery store where the fresh produce, meats, and dairy are kept. Shop in the middle aisle as little as possible. Losing 2 lbs all ready is great!! I know we can reach our 150 lb goal this year if we keep to our plans and support!! Keep shaking it up!

  6. Whatever works for you is the right plan, doesnt matter what they call it. Just sticking with it is the key! Pattie is on my mind too...
