I was thinking about this and realized that Spring Break is in about three months. We have a trip planned to Orlando during that week. My goal is to be in a smaller size and have more energy for the trip. I know I can do that by tracking my food and being faithful to exercise. Having this goal will hopefully be a motivator! emoticon

My short term goal is to lose 30 pounds (10 pounds a month). Hopefully being home on snow days won't jeopardize that.

Considering I went for my yearly cholesterol check up yesterday and it's up again I have to get back into exercising and get at least 25 lbs. off so that's my 3 month goal. I go back for a recheck in 4 months and I want to see a big change in the numbers. It went up last year and is up more this year. Not good. I am on tons of meds for it already so there isn't much more the dr. can do (family history). It's up to me. I was within normal limits 2 yrs. ago when I was 40 lbs. lighter.

I am having "issues" with anything marshmallow. The librarian just told me that there is a roasted marshmallow candle sold at our local mall. Maybe the smell will be enough satisfaction and that will help. He did caution me that it is not edible.

Hmmm, timely question. I haven't been able to get my motivation back to stay for over a year. The result of that is a regain of the 33 lbs. I lost plus another 8. I just came back from shopping for a few things that fit. I'm sick of everything being tight, including bras! Maybe this will do it! I already own all the smaller sizes.

Snow days!!! My son does not go to school in the district I work in. I love having a day off all to myself. I usually have far more snow days than he does. I also love the days we have off together. We shovel snow, drink hot chocolate, and play games together. Wonderful memories to be made and cherished.
