STILL UNDER 250??!?!??!



super excited that i'm still going in the right direction!

although i must admit i've still been slacking a little on the exercise end of things. i really am a slacker by heart...but i'm trying to get over that. i haven't been doing Wii Fit regularly, but i have been more active. (cleaning the house, doing more when i get home than just making sure the ass-shaped dent in the couch doesn't disappear.)

i think what helped this week was the major grocery trip and eating the foods that we already have in the house. in the past, i would be so picky about what we were going to have for dinner. but now? i look forward to the variety and things i was never really excited about before actually taste good. and, believe it or not, last night i actually opted for sherbet over the double-chocolate-chip ice cream! crazy...i know!

i know they say that you can't just change what you do/eat, but you have to change your mindset and point of view. i think i've made that change when it comes to food, for sure. i snack more often to keep my metabolism up. and i'm snacking on healthier foods. i pretty much HAVE to have some sort of veggie with dinner, and i feel like i'm missing something if i don't get some fresh fruit throughout the day. (before, i'd consider cherry cordial ice cream both my dairy and my fruit...and if i got the frozen yogurt version? well, that was just a bonus!)

so, i need your help and encouragement. yell at me. tell me to get my ass in gear and get moving. let me know how your battle is going. nothing motivates me more than you guys and your comments!

  1. 10 pounds!?!?!?!?!?! That's awesome!!!!! A suggestion for you...look into Jorge Cruise's books. It sounds like you are doing the right thing with changing your mindset on how and when you eat. He might be able to give you a little more advice. He really helped me a while back (actually, I need to get back to what he really worked for me!). That's my advice for you for the week...go to the library and check out his books for the next couple of weeks, then let me know what you think :-)
