Hope - love your thread title! So many of us struggled last week -- it's perfect. I feel motivated just reading the title. I like reading other people's goals and food plans - it's interesting and sometimes it gives me ideas. Re your learning 3 Spanish words -- I had been learning Tagalog (one of my daughters in law is Filipino) - listening to CDs in the car. But then I stopped having to make a 45-min weekly drive, so mostly stopped. I'm not ready to add it to my weekly goals yet, but I'm now thinking about it.
Welcome, cnorulak! Good goals.
Jenn - hooray for your good start on the day. Keep in going.
Cassie - I liked how you said you treat a plateau like a child having a tantrum - you just don't give in and it strengthens your resolve. I'm taking that to heart and am going to bust that plateau this week.
Robin - new day today, forget last night's extra snacks. Is your back feeling any better?
Wishing everyone a successful week!
