Good morning, Debbie and all! =)

I had a wonderful first week. After about a year off of my healthy eating food plan, I was actually eager to get back to many of the clean foods that I missed. My refrigerator and cupboards are much happier and healthier, too.

I had no real problem staying on track over the weekend either, which has always been my downfall. After my first week, I weighed in for the first time today, and I'm down 3 lbs.! Now I know that the weight loss will slow as I get closer to my goal weight, BUT what a great feeling to see the numbers come down instead of up! That's pretty amazing, because I was only able to get outside for my walks 3 times last week. I STILL don't have my SUV back. It is now at the third garage for a diagnosis. Fingers crossed, I'll have it back this week so that I can at least walk at the HS gym or at the mall, which I hate, but it's better than nothing. Temps are still below zero for the next couple of days.

I have a slow cooker full of healthy minestrone soup already made for dinner tonight, which should give me leftovers for lunches this week.

Working on my goals which I'll post in a little bit. Since everything is working well, I'll probably keep them pretty much the same.

Have a great day, everyone and let's make this a successful week for all of us. =)

Good morning Debbie!

It's time for me to hop back on this train!! My goals will be simple again. I'm back up to 207.0 (after a week of not logging and barely drink any water). That's still 3.6 down from just a couple weeks ago, so I'm not mad.

1) Drop 1 pound
2) Drink a bottle of water before every meal
3) Drink 100oz of water per day
4) Log foods
5) No king cake this week

Went fine with the doctor, I'm feeling better. Not quite 100% but much better, thanks. I have to bring one of our girls to the doctor today, she may have strep.
