Here's the cake that I made for my 6 yr old. Everything is edible except for the Hot Wheels cars. The big Spiderman and the spiders on top of the cake are made out of chocolate. The buildings are royal icing, as well as the little web shooting out of Spiderman's hand. This is a stacked cake, the bottom tier is a 14" round, and the top tier is a 6". This is my first stacked cake, it was interesting that's for sure :O)

My son requested Wall-E cupcakes for his birthday party yesterday. Phoenix lent me the stand, isn't it awesome? That's 38 cupcakes there. I'm making a cake for his actual birthday on Wednesday. I will post pics :O)

First...a new haircut!

Second...a new bag! This is the Core Gym Bag *Dip Dye by Lululemon. I LOVEEEEE this bag!!!

Sharing some pics of my family and I that were taken on my trip last weekend.

Haha, my 5 yr old took this shot and told us all to pose "like silly statues". This is my Dad and his girlfriend in the photo. We were over at their place for a BBQ.

My new plan is working! One day of lower points/healthier eating, and I'm already down a lb. The lowest I've been in 5 weeks. I hope this continues! I'm excited! I want to see those 140's again :O)

I really appreciate all the helpful comments everyone. I'm so lucky to have all this support :O)

So, I'm done pouting and moping about my body not wanting to lose weight. I'm ready to tackle this again. I've tried low points, I've tried high points, and I've tried mediocre points...all of these options have gotten me nowhere. Now, I'm going to try the NOT GIVING MY BODY A DAMN CHOICE plan. I will drop my points again to 23, and I'm NOT going to eat my flex this week (which will be hard because I always eat my Flex). I'm going to revert to the old WW plan and only eat up to 4 AP's per day. I will do my best to earn 28 ap's during the week despite this crappy ankle injury that I have. I'm also going to take some of your great suggestions and try to incorporate more of the Core-style foods into my menu. I'm still going to count points though because I don't trust myself not to overeat. I guess that I'll be doing kind of a Flex/Core combo. I really hope this kicks my body into weight loss mode. I think once I get the ball rolling, I will lose consistantly like I did before.

Wish me luck!

(Oh, and weigh in today was 151.5 lbs, so basically I stayed the same again)

Well...I'm 151.6 lbs today. Which is down 2 lbs from last week, but right back to where I was the week before. So basically, in the last 3.5 weeks of lowering my points, I haven't gotten anywhere. I GIVE UP! I'm sick of eating so few points, especially since it's not working. So, I'm bumping my points up to 27, which is 3 less than I normally do for maintenace, and 4 more from what I've been doing these last few weeks. I feel totally defeated :O(

This will be my last week of eating 23 pts. It's just not working! I will finish the week because that's just my style. I don't quit. The lowered points isn't doing a darn thing though! I've been trying for 3 weeks now, and I've been earning my AP's just like I usually would (28 per week).
