I'm down 1.2 lbs for a total of 21.6!
Let me just say that it's not been easy this week, as I was on the road for 2 days...eating out in restaurants & now staying w/family. As you know, when you're traveling, it's very difficult to remain in control & on track! I'll share what works for me!
*TRACKING everything! & stay in range!
*pack a cooler w/low fat yogurt/fruit/cheese/nuts/water for the road!
*exercise of some form, no matter what! Even just 20-30 mins a day!
*remain mindful of what I'm putting in my mouth! always!
I have to admit that it's been difficult at times when everyone around me is eating desserts & drinking beverages that I'd love to have! Case in point,...we went to a Mexican restaurant & of course, I have my most favorite! Shrimp fajitas! But when everyone ordered margaritas...which I LOVE! I looked up a margarita on WW's before I would order, & I found it's....(wait for it)
...19 points! I mean, really?!!! 19????!!!! So NOT worth it! That was my thought, anyway!
I kept looking things up before I ordered food in restaurants & sometimes it's crazy ridiculous the amount of calories or points some foods are! Many aren't worth it! My thoughts, anyway...
It certainly keeps me on my toes!!!
Alright guys, I hope you're all well! I'm staying w/family in Ohio & will be heading back to warmer temps & sunshine next Monday! Until then, I'm struggling to keep warm! I'm getting my exercise in, even though it's not my normal 2 hours/daily! I did get to do a SPIN class w/my youngest & I'm gonna do ZUMBA on Wednesday w/her too!
Keep moving forward everyone... & stay healthy!!!
Hugs & love!

Yep, my friends! I hit it!!! The BIG 2-0!!!
Yep! 10% of my body weight! GONE!!!
Um, can ya tell I'm a bit excited?!!
Well, I am, by golly! And I'm at the half way mark of where I wanna be! I was down 2.4 lbs this week for a total of 20.4! And I did it in 8 weeks! Uh, and ya know what? I've been down this road before...deja vu! As I'm writing this, it occurs to me that I've written this before! Oh yea, so I'm asking myself what will be different this time? I mean, I know I've been down this road SEVERAL times in the past. So what's gonna be different? Well, for me, the thing that makes the biggest difference of all is...
*The tracking of my foods!
*And making better choices!
*Portion control (most definitely)
*And stress management
*being mindful of emotional eating!
*don't fear that scale! (laughing...)
ALL important! And all I've gotta say is...I'm gonna do it one day at a time! Now, that's the way to do it!!!
I'm leaving for Ohio tomorrow & will arrive on Friday to watch little Ashlie cheerleading w/her rah rahs! We are also gonna cheer one grandson on in football (as the other one broke his ankle & is out for the season). We plan to do some clambakes & get some fresh fish in (like walleye & perch) while we're up there! They don't have any of these down here in SW Florida, & we're missing 'em! Can't wait!!!
Alright now, everyone enJOY a wonderful week...
& Happy October to you all!!!
Hugs & love!

I hope you are all well! Happy Fall to ya!!!
This week was a great success! I'm down another 1.6 lbs!
I tracked my foods religiously, exercised a lot (I had 132 activity points on WW's!), drank the water, & stayed in caloric range! Oh, & I ate well, my friends!!! Let's see, this week I made...
Chicken Fajitas (foodnetwork.com)
Broccoli & Cheddar Quiche (Kraftfoods.com)
Shrimp w/garlic Sauce (foodnetwork.com)
Chicken Sausage w/peppers & onions (my own!)
Oven Fried Fish (Better Homes & Gardens cookbook)
I also made & tried these!
A healthy "Grab N Go Snack Mix" (heart.org)
& a heavenly "Angelic Lemon Cheesecake (Fage.com)
On the snack mix, I gotta wonder if it's really worth making, cause I can only eat 1/4 cup at a time & not everyday!...& I'm sooo tempted to eat much much more! Now I got most of it sitting in snap-closed containers, calling my name! Um, not a good thing! Maybe I can freeze it?!!
Oh, & the Cheesecake is DIVINE! If you like lemony things...then this is an awesome recipe for you! It only has 4 ingredients & it's to die for!!! Main ingredient is plain greek yogurt! And it looks so pretty when it's set! And you won't believe how incredibly wonderful it is! And it's a serving for 1!
I'm off to do PILATES, 1/2 hour of ZUMBA, & SPINNING CLASS this morning! I hope you all have a FABULOUS day & a WONDERFUL week!!! It's half over, ya know!!! I'm getting ready to go up north in a couple of weeks to see my grandsons play ball & watch my granddaughter cheer! The twins are on the school football team & little Ashlie cheers for the hometown juniors! Ash also has a gymnastics meet the first weekend of October. So, but of course, the proud grandparents have to be there to cheer them on!!!
Go Ashlie! Go Brennan! Go Corey!
And I'm cheering you all on to continue moving forward!!! We CAN do it, one day at a time!!!
Love & Hugs!
