Well, week 2 of my Weight Watchers experience has passed. And I have to say, I am about to through everything over board. Seriously it’s not, that I don’t want to diet, I set my mind on this and I wouldn’t stop right now. But I am getting more and more frustrated with it and I don’t think WW is the right thing for me. See, have you ever gone to the grocery store, looking at the vegetable and fruit isle and wanted to take out a knife to stab everything on there to death??? That’s how I feel right now. I mean, I love fruits, I love vegetables, but that’s kinda all I eat the whole day to feel satisfied. Veggies don’t have any kind of points you know. And instead of chocolate, candy or chips I eat a banana, a clementine or some snap peas at night.

Alright, don’t get me wrong, I eat my pasta for lunch or some potatoes with…, you guess… vegetables! Yay! (Urgh!) But I feel I’ve become more and more angry during those two weeks. I want chocolate soooo bad!!!

You might think that a look at the scale is motivating me not to stop? Well the first week it kinda was. I lost 1.3 lbs. Not that much, but at least it was a healthy amount of weight. (I have to admit, that I was a little jealous of room-mate cause she lost 4.9 lbs in that week! But she did some sports as well, and I didn’t.) This week the results were kinda devastating to me. I lost only 0.2 lbs! WTF??? Seriously??? I followed the rules, counted my points, didn’t overeat, but this was kind of… well I haven’t expected that. This was the point were I started to wonder if this was the right thing for me.

Now I’m starting this project to do a little workout at least every other day, to see if this changes a bit. If it does I guess I won’t continue WW cause it proves my point, that I don’t need to starve myself to death, to loose weight, if I just work out. I’m reading a lot of health and diet books, cause I really like them, and I might start something new. But I guess I just try out different things and sum up what I think is best for me.

Well, if anybody thinks I am weak now, let me tell you this. Everybody of us is different. Some of us need certain things, and others don’t. I love food, and I love eating. I want to eat a f***ing fat pizza sometimes without thinking “Oh gosh, that was way more than my points allow me”. I give kudos to everybody who has the dicipline to stick with strict diets or who are not craving something for the sweet tooth sometimes. But anyways,…

I’m not giving up (yet)! And I still want chocolate sooooooooooooooooooooo bad!!!!

Same procedure as every year. We all made our New Years resolutions. Mine was actually to make no resolutions. But anyways, somehow out of  coincidence, Roomate and I decided to start doing Weight Watchers at the same time. You’ve never heard of Weight Watchers? Well then you’ve probably lived under a rock for the last 20 something years or you simply have the genes of a supermodel paired with a fitness guru with a size 0 waist. If not, you now what I am talking about.

So I’ve never done his before, well maybe ’cause I am not really the kind of girl who loves dieting adventures, but I thought whatever, let’s give this ride a try. Alright, alright, alright. The actuall reason is another. Have you ever looked at photographs of you, and asked yourself  “where the heck have I been in this picture?” And then you realize you’re the fattie in the front covering everybody else? – Guilty! That’s the only reason my facebook page has so many portraits of me!

Alright, so yesterday I subscribed for the online program, which is new. It’s quite nice, you don’t have to go to the meetings, don’t have to carry a journal around with you, you simply type everything in that little program on your computer. It even has an iPhone App for on the go! Pretty awesome, right? Well, for those who have an iPhone at least. (Oh, dear people at Weight Watchers. Just imagine, even though Apple has kinda become the leading force in mobile comunication technology, still not everybody owns one of their mobile phones. So if you’re not willing to give one out for free, who cares about your stupid App???)

I updated my profile, filled in my facts, measured my size. And nope, I won’t tell you my weight, cause I’m a girl and we’re not talking lbs. Sorry! And then I started counting the points. And after day 2, I’m already almost about to give up. I am bored, I am hungry and I am starving! Maybe I shouldn’t surround myself with people who are nibbling on chocolate the whole time. Makes it pretty hard, to stay focused. So dear fellow work-mates, I dare you to eat that damn candy around me. If I’m going through hell, I’ll take you with me! #insert-evil-laughter-here. I’m even thinking of suggesting healthy snacks for our First Class passenger to my company. What about grapes, cherry tomatos or cucumber sticks instead of that mean chocolate covered almonds???

Besides, vegetables and fruits count o points. So here’s a little peek at my “dinner” tonight:

Apricots and clementines. Looks delicious, right? Hm, I wonder if you can deep-fry them, to make them taste more like potato chips…

So here we are. Another year has passed and a new one just begun. Let me introduce you to the girl behind this blog. Born and raised in the northern part of Germany, about 30 (and little more) years ago, she’s travelling the country day to day, just to return at night. Cryptic, right? Well, not so. Just a very very short description of my life. Imagine that. You’re living outside the city you work in, and every morning you drag yourself to use public transportation to take you to your office. I’m the one who dares to disturbe your early-morning-sleep, just to ask you: “May I see your ticket, pleeaase?” Yepp, yepp, that’s me. The girl in the blue uniform with the red scarf around her neck. I bet you hate me know, right?

Well, well, after torturing you now, 10-12 hours a day, I finally return home and do this: Writing, Reading, Shopping, Facebooking, TV Watching, Eating, Sleeping. That’s pretty much it. My Life. Hm, anything else you need to know??? Alright, alright I insist. You wanna hear a story? So here’s what I came up with:

Here goes my year, watch it as it leaves…

Yesterday I started my life the easy way. Well I did some sleeping, and some sleeping, and some more sleeping, oh some TV watching, some facebooking and maybe some more sleeping. Chilly, right? At 6.30 pm, Roomate, Boyfriend of hers (let’s call him B-FoR in our further remarks), and I left,  to meet Kitty (who is “obvioulsy” a boy) and Metti (who is “obviously” … Metti) to follow the invitation for a “Burger Party” from Ka-Di (who is “obviously” a couple), to celebrate the END OF THE WORLD!!!…. Ooops, I guess I mixed that one up. I mean the END OF THE YEAR 2011!!!! Yeah!!! (What makes me think, would anybody, except Al Kaida, really celebrate the end of the World??? … Spooky thought…)

So, we arrived fashionably late, one hour so to speak, starving from hunger and thirst. I mean if somebody tells you, you get huge homemade Burgers and Cocktails, you wouldn’t have eaten anything during the day, too. But let me warn you. Please don’t do so. Eat! Eat whatever you want, or at least bring a sandwich! And as a side note for party hosts: You don’t want to have 15 starving guest waiting for food in your living-room, almost tearing your furniture apart. To prevent that, give them something to nibble on. Chips, Cracker, Candy, whatever. But at least give them something!!!

Well don’t get me wrong. There was plenty of food. Plenty of raw, uncooked, unfinished food!!! As I read the invitation I thought it was “build your own burger”, not bake your own burger bun, stir your own burger sauce and shoot your own “Burger-Meat” to put something inbetween. Ok, I’m getting a little overdramatic here. But, with the words of the always fist-pumping Zack Ryder: “ARE YOU SERIOUS, BRO???” If I am invited to a party, I’m not in the mood to cook my own meal! I could have done that at home, duh.

So whatever, after a short period of time, the Burgers were finally ready. I mean, come on, what are 4 hours of waiting, right??? It’s not, that we haven’t had fun during the idle time. We asked eachother Trivial Pursuit questions, what somehow proceeded in a pillow fight, oh and some of us (including me) even “tried” to eat some of the rock-hard gingerbread cookies, that where sitting there on a plate. Well, obviously the only thing kinda eatable in the whole room. I just wanna mention, that I made it through 3 (!!!) of the cookies, even though, they were so damn hard, that you could hit someone in the head with them and he wouldn’t have waken up for the rest of the night. But I’ll have to admit, the Burgers were delicious, and kinda worth the waiting. Well, not the whole 4 hours, they were worth a little waiting.

But in the meantime, time was ticking away, and whoops, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,… Happy New Year!!!! Welcome 2012!!! Or as the Pink Panther would sing: “Wer hat an der Uhr gedreht, ist es wirklich schon so spät…” And here we are. Hopefully for longer… 🙂

So there you have it.  A little peak into my so-called wonderland of life. I’m out now, and if I had a catchphrase I maybe might say “Take care, Spike your hair” now. But if I’d spike mine, I would look ridiculous. So, therefor “Later, marks…” (Ooops, guess this one was stolen, too…;) )

OUT…
