Had my next meeting and weighed in at 217! BUMMER! I gained a pound in the last two weeks since my last visit. That really helped reality set in of all the late night snacks and my uncontrollable binges I get. It really hit me harder then most other times. We spoke about new goals and today I finally bought myself a scale. In the last few months I have only been measuring some portions and estimating others since I don't have a scale but she convinced me to get one today so that I can more accurately measure my portions. So this two weeks goal is to better portion size and my personal goal is to lose at least another pound by the next two week visit. emoticon
The weather has been so emoticon these past two weeks in anchorage it is really starting to warm up and the daily bike rides are getting to be much more fun with the better weather. I switched my studded bike tires to my summer bike tires and it was AMAZING how different it feels now so much BETTER! emoticon
Hope everyone is well and thank you for all the encouraging comments you guys are awesome!! emoticon

    I just came across your blog. Old habits are so hard to break. Good job for making a decision to change for the better. Your new journey starts today!

    Also I know you said that you don't have a scale. I have been working a program called the 21 day fix. It comes with color coded portion control containers. You get a certain number of each container each day and you fill it up and you are good to go. You should check it out. Let me know if you have questions it could be exactly what you need to really kick it into high gear. It also comes with an amazing workout program that can be modified for any level! I'm on my second week now.

    Here's the link
