Okay, drum rolls pleeeeaaassee!!! (...for the NOT so big reveal!)
I'm down 0.4 lbs for a total of............29.8 lbs gone since I began WW's!
So CLOSE, & yet so FAR!!!
Oh, believe me, I WAS shooting for that final 30 lbs gone forever!!!
But, it didn't happen!!!
It's okay, it's okay! I'm not fretting it! I'm just gonna keep doing what I've been doing & I know soon I'll be there!!! I know I CAN, I know I CAN, I know I CAN!!!
This week, I'm gonna continue to track, HONESTLY! I'm gonna increase my water intake & stay in range most days!!! I CAN do it!!! I'm also continuing to pack, cause we're moving at the end of the month! My youngest daughter is gonna be here on the 19th & I can't wait to hug & visit with her!!!

I hope you're all healthy & well! The new year is in full swing & we're anticipating the arrival of Spring!!! Not soon enough for most, I hear!!! Well, let's just put it right out for all to see, shall we?!!
There, doesn't it feel better already?!!
Alright...(cue the trumpets, please!!)
I'm down 2.0 lbs this week!!!
Total of 29.4 so far since I joined WW's!!!
I'm feeling great & the week went well! I'm still struggling w/keeping in range w/carbs & proteins...but overall, I did much better! Honestly, I've been very busy w/packing & volunteering & shopping!!! So, the week just flew by! I'm eating well...& continue to eat healthy & make good choices! I've increased my intake of fruits & veggies & that's working well! It's been chilly here (oh, I know...I'm not complaining!) & I've made chili, veggie soup, & chicken stew this week! Yum!!! All good to the last drop!!!
I'm in training for a 5K in May...& I'm getting my speed up! I continue to enJOY my Spinning class at the Y! I'm LOVIN' the Spin!!! I've incorporated lifting free weights a couple of days in the gym prior to the Spin Class so I can make certain I'm getting my ST in! It's true that when you build & maintain muscle, your body continues to burn more calories, even at rest! Maintaining muscle mass is crucial to weight loss! It also helps maintain a healthy blood sugar! All good!!!
Oh, we bought a new car yesterday! A 2013 Honda CRV! A beautiful car, I must say! And the best part is...
No more car shopping!!! It's done!!!
Still packing...still moving at the end of the month! Exciting but crazy! And my youngest daughter comes for a visit on the 19th! Oh, I hope the temps improve so we can do the beach while she's here! I haven't seen her since October, so I'm so awaiting her hugs!!!
So, all is well in my world! I hope the same goes for yours, my friends! Plan this week is to remain sane & stay the course!!! I would LOVE to reach that 30 lbs gone, finally!!! WooHoo!!! Now, wouldn't that be nice!!!!
EnJOY a wondrous week all...& stay healthy & warm out there!!! You're all worthy of the best life has to offer, my friends!!! You're all worthy!!!

I hope all is well in your world, my friends! As for me, I'm holding steady! Yep! My weight remained exactly the same this week! My initial reaction? Well, I was a bit shocked & disappointed & then angry! And the women weighing me in at Weight Watcher's says to me, she says... "well, you can just add a little more exercise!" What?!!
More exercise????!!! Uh, NO! I think NOT!
What I do think though, is that I need to take a look at what I'm eating. Not that I'm eating anything that's wrong, cause I'm not. But I know I've gone over my carbs just about everyday this past week. It's because of all the fruits & veggies I'm eating! And I've gone over on my proteins too most days. I've been hitting the mark most days on the fats & calories have remained around 1500 most days.
Okay, so I'm going to adjust what I'm eating & attend to staying in range most days! I'll continue the exercise just as, thank you very much! And I'm moving on!!!
Things coming up for me... (insert stress here!)
-I've volunteered for a bunch of things coming up at St. Matthews House & the Y
-I've got my daughter visiting in a couple of weeks! (no stress, just fun & love!)
-I'm moving the end of March (to a bigger & better place in Naples!)
-We're hunting for a new car.... (I HATE car shopping!)
Oh, & I'm also gonna be running a 5K in May...in Cincinnati, OH, no less! And I'm doing it with a Spark Buddy friend of mine, COMPUCATHY!!! Oh, I'm very excited & I've already begun to train!!! I say...
Alright! You all enJOY a wonderful week! I hope the weather's gonna clear & that the sun comes out & shines for ya all! I'm hoping! I'm hoping!!! Stay healthy & warm out there!!!

Hello Fellow Sparkers!
I hope everyone is well! The media's reporting that the flu season has eased up a bit, but I gotta tell ya, I'm hearing a lot of people say that there are a lot of sick folks out there! And those that get this nasty flu have been very, very ill! Please take special care, my friends! I'm not wanting any of ya's out there to be sick! Stay healthy!
Now, I'm not complaining or anything, but I just find it a little "odd" that last week, I lost 1.8 lbs...& this week, well, I "found" 1.8 lbs! Coincidence?
I think NOT!
I mean, come on now! So, let's recap, shall we? Thus far, for the new year...
1/2/13 - +4.4 lbs
1/10 - -2.4
1/17 - -1.2
1/31 - +4.0
2/7 - -1.8
2/14 - +1.8
(Just so ya know, I had NO Valentine's Day candy or goodies! None! Nadda!)
Total loss with WW's is 24.4 lbs! Ok. Ok. So, I'm HAPPY I'm down 24.4 lbs, but I've got some work to do! Some serious work!
I've been exercising everyday, but this week, I've not had the chance to squeeze in much walking in the evening, so I'm doing to step up to the plate there & make more of an effort to get out. I can do that! And honestly, I've not been tracking at all. I know I keep saying I'm gonna, but, well...I just plain don't do it! So, I'm gonna do it! So, goals for the week are...
-walk at least 5 evenings this week
-TRACK! TRACK! TRACK!
Okay, I CAN do it, by golly! I hope you're all well out there fellow Sparkers! Stay healthy & keep warm! You're all my JOY!
