What a Slacker!

I seriously haven't posted since last WEDNESDAY? What in the blue blazes have I been doing? I know I had company starting Thursday, but GEEZ!

Well, I wanna update you on The Quest to Be Healthy at All Costs.

I'm doing really well this week! I'm exercising and sticking to the eating plan (Weight Watchers Core Plan) and am feeling more and more confident that I can make it through this to my goal. Sure, I struggle (like walking past the dessert bar today at lunch) but it hasn't stolen my motivation and drive so far.

These are some of the things I'm doing differently this time around:
  • Journaling every. single. thing. that I eat. Not a single tic-tac or piece of gum is spared from this!
  • Plan menus and grocery trips--it felt so good to go through the store with a PLAN last night...and to now have a pantry stocked with good-for-us stuff.
  • Positive attitude-- i think this has been one of the biggest changes from past attempts to get healthy. I really, truly believe I can attain my goal. That is a huge change for me.
  • Having a solid support network--including my hubby and my family doing the program, too--means that I'm not "alone" in my struggle. :-)

If I feel this good at 10 pounds lost, I can't imagine how 20, 30, 40+ pounds gone feels...but I'm looking forward to finding out!

Actually, I think a better title would be "What a LOSER!"

Seriously. Way (weigh) to go. You're doing great!
