emoticon Blog every Saturday reviewing if meeting goals, making adjustments as necessary. ~Need to review this goal.

emoticon September loss goal: 5lbs ~ Rather 7.8!!!

emoticon Remember to make time for my husband... :) I'm always so busy with the boys and household responsibilities and work that I think I need to really make time for us - go on a date, and sit and really talk and laugh together. This needs to be a priority to keep me mentally healthy. ~Although we didn't get any date nights for September we did have fun together!

emoticon Also, I do spend time on FB so I've altered my feed to show me a lot of the healthy groups and people (ie, Bob Harper, Biggest Loser, Women's Health, SP). And I've started a 'secret' group where I can be more transparent to family and friends which will help keep me accountable. Let me know if you're on FB! :)
