If you just listened to my progress report on the Everything Wellness show and are popping in to see what I look like and learn more about me, I welcome you! It is my pleasure to have you stop by.
I hope that your visit here will encourage you to reach for your weight loss goals. By me posting, it is making me accountable to a LOT of people and pushes me to do my best.
As you heard on the show, I am following the new Weight Watchers Points Plus program. Because I am committed to being able to attend the meetings and get the support I need, I pay for a monthly pass. I can’t use the excuse of not having the meeting fee to keep me from going because I pay a month at a time…which actually saves money AND I get the e-tools included. I love the e-tools because it allows me to track everything I eat and the activity I do right from my Droid. I don’t have to worry about how many points something has, I can look it up anytime, anywhere. If you don’t have a need to attend meetings (I do right now) then you can check out another online system at Spark People. It is completely free! They have tips and recipes. I am still using it for these features but haven’t been tracking on it since I have been using e-tools.
Along with all of these tools, I hear the voice of Tracy reminding me to eat breakfast and reading the tips she posts on Facebook. I also look at people who I know personally who have lost a lot of weight and see how their lives are changed. That inspires me so much!
I spoke about some challenges I have faced. It isn’t as much fun to get out and walk when it is so cold so I have not been doing my morning outdoor walk in the past 2 weeks. I have been dancing with the kids and using my stepper while I watch TV. I wanted to get some workout games for our Wii but it quit working last week so I guess I need to come up with another idea. The food challenges have not been that great so far but I know with Christmas here, this next week is going to a little more difficult. I will just take what I have learned and try to stick with my plan.
Please be sure to subscribe to my blog, follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook. I know that the more people I have keeping up with me, the harder I am going to work and the more successful I will be. Imagine the celebration we will all have together next November when we celebrate the achievement that you have helped me with! Let’s do this!
