I'm a mom of two beautiful girls trying to get healthy in order to be a good role model.

Not about my weight loss - or weight maintain.  But I went the night without after dinner snacking.  Huge, huge victory for me.  Not only that, but when I was about to walk over and crack open a bottle of wine for an evening glass, I chose a Diet pepsi and water instead!  When I went to bed, I actually felt good about my day for the first time in a really LONG time. 

And it doesn't end there.  I made split pea soup out of my Weight Watcher cookbook yesterday for my lunches this week.  I finally picked up some steel cut oats which everyone seems to rave about.  Made that yesterday too for my breakfasts for the rest of the week.  I had it this morning with some cut up strawberries.  Yummy!  I also cut up all my veggies so they are easy to grab and munch throughout the day. 

I think my goal of hitting 185 by Christmas is still possible.  That would be 2 lbs a week from now until Xmas.  Totally doable but I really am not going to punish myself if I don't reach it since it is a tight time frame.  I just feel that if you set goals (especially in small increments) it gives you something to work towards and they feel more possible to reach.  If I sit here and think, ugh I have 25-40 pounds left to lose then it gets discouraging.  A 12 pound loss seems much more attainable.

You know what?  After the planning I did and the eating healthy yesterday, I am in a great mood today!  I really think that I am back on track after veering off slightly for a bit.  Off to go have my soup!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm happy to have found yours too.

It's amazing what one day will do for your psyche, isn't it? Don't look behind or too far ahead: just focus on one day at a time, and you'll get there.:-) Keep it up!
