Every night I sit here and write about my day.....about how I did not put 100% in, about how I want to be healthy and lose the weight. Over the last few days I have been doing a lot of thinking about what I want and how I am going to accomplish it. I was shopping today and looked at some dresses - I want to get something for  when the Hubby and I head for Vegas - something pretty for a night out on the town. I was thinking about buying something a size or 2 smaller as motivation - but just looking at one of the dresses in my current size was all I needed! I do not want to be a size 14 anymore - I do not want my thighs to rub together, I do not want to be the big girl lying by the pool. I need to make these changes. So I have been making plans - hubby and I have not decided when we are going to start the C25K - he is super busy at work right now so I think I might start it on my own, in the meantime I have asked him to take Grace upstairs for 30 minutes when he gets home so I can do a workout video. I am going to try and get 2 activities in per day - do Just Dance everyday and do the workout video on days when I don't have my mommy workout group.

I also took the time today to look through my WW cookbook and I was really impressed, there are some great recipes! I am going to start making some of them. More importantly I am going to start sticking to my points! No more of too many treats and not counting on weekend - if I want to lose this weight I actually need to follow the program and make the changes. A very wise leader once said

" You will almost lose weight if you almost follow the program"

Almost isn't good enough.....


  1. I am in exactly the same place as you. Moving right along I say! No more chub rub :)

  2. I LOVE that quote!! Just about any plan will work, if it's followed consistently- and that's where we ALL struggle!

    IDK about buying a dress too small, especially by 2 sizes. Sometimes setting a timed deadline can backfire (for me at least!). If it will help motivate you, at least maybe consider not setting a deadline and just try it on every few weeks? Just an idea, I'll support whatever you decide to use for motivation!! :)

  3. Thanks! I think I am going to wait for the dress because I have had it backfire on me too!

  4. You go girl! I am at the same point..
