WEEKS 13 & 14

Confession time! I reached my first goal of 20 pounds
and then I got lazy! Don't get me wrong, I kept up with
my exercising, I just got lazy when it came to food. Maybe "lazy" isn't the right word for it - "comfortable" is more like it. I got too comfortable grabbing something to eat (Del Taco, chips, corn dog...) and then telling myself, "I'll make up for it at the next meal." That rarely
happened. I either wouldn't eat at all or I'd grab something again! What's with the self-sabotage??!!

My new focus... meal planning. If I want to continue to
see results, I need to get back to thinking ahead.
I'm going to try some new recipes (Weight Watchers and
Hungry Girl). I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm also adding to my workout. In addition to doing the
Wii Active at least 4 day this week, I plan to walk at least 5
days. It helps to have someone to walk with. My pal Sam and I walked a mile and a quarter today. We'll add a few more laps tomorrow!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

WEEKS 10 & 11

What is is about us girls? Why is it that we have
such a hard time seeing ourselves the way we
really are? I've spent the last two weeks complaining
that I was having a "fat week". Anytime someone would
comment (or compliment me) on my weight loss, I
would respond with a "I feel like a cow" or "I don't
feel like I've lost much". When I looked in the mirror
or at a picture of myself, I didn't see someone who
had lost almost 20 pounds, I only felt defeated.

Well silly girl, SNAP OUT OF IT!! I'm doing fine!!
I'm out of the 180's and only 1 pound from my first
20 pound goal! I'm right on track!! I can do this!
I'm looking good!!

Week Ten Results: -1.5 pounds
