This week I got my first star (you get one every time you loose 5 lbs) at Weight watchers. I have lost -5.4 lbs. I was so thrilled to have lost this week. I didn't loss the week before and that really bummed me out. Thankfully I didn't give up (cause that isn't even an option) and I still went back (Thank you Sara for the encouragement). It has been very hard for me since we have had so many party's to go to. Sept - Dec. seems to be the hardest time (eating wise) since a lot of our family has a Sept. or Oct. birthday. Now that we are home we get to enjoy all these birthday parties and all the goodies...Oh My! It's been great but it is so hard to keep my hand out of the chip bowl...Yikes! It's even harder to have a hubby who works for Kraft/Nabisco. A lot of cookies cross our path.
We (as a family) have been trying to make time to walk around the park by my Moms house but that seems to be a challenge since we are always so busy. John and I are both going to try to exercise more and get into shape. I want my family to be healthy and that means making better choices. With the holidays fast approaching I want to be able to learn to make better choices and actually loose during Thanksgiving and Christmas. I kinda look forward to the challenge...Bring it on!
