I've found a cute motivator that I have right in my kitchen of a just 2 small jars - one filled with glass beads. The one with glass beads has on it "Pounds to Lose" the other "Pounds Lost". Every time I lose a pound I move a bead to the "lost" jar. I really enjoy seeing the beads collecting in that jar, especially when I want to grab a night time snack. After cleaning up after dinner, I put the jars front and center on my counter so I have to see it to get to the fridge.

Hope everyone has been having great weeks.
for the jar idea! Love it. I saw pictures of me taken at the birthday party yesterday. Oh my, not flattering at all. After losing 46 lbs it is so obvious that I have a long way to go. I didn't realize how much I still look like "before" and not what I think I look like, if that makes sense.

You inspire me! Thanks for always posting your updates.

How did you decide your goal? No one at WW talked to me about goals, just showed me a chart and said that I need to get down to the range on the chart. In my head, I'm shooting for the highest number on the chart for my goal, since that's pretty much what I was in high school. But I'm wondering if there is something more official I should know about.

You're welcome! I try to be totally transparent with my progress, because I know it helps me to read about what other people are doing.

I did the same thing you did to pick my goal. I looked at a chart and picked the highest number for my height. I figure if I get there and want to lose more, I can.

West Milford is east of Sussex Co. I grew up in the Newton, Andover area. Went to Newton High School.

Weigh in today for me was not what I expected. I stayed the same...worked out this week and tracked, so I'm blaming on that time of the month. Here's to next week being better!

Another 2.4 lbs this week! I'm really happy with that since we were out of town, ate out a lot, and I wasn't tracking. I did make good choices, like the baked salmon and whole sweet potato at the truck stop where everyone was having burgers! It was shockingly good! LOL. 11.9 lbs total in 5 weeks. Yay! I signed up for a learn to run program starting September 4th and although I wanted to wait to be down 20 lbs, it's the only one offered. I'm going to try for 15 by then!

Feeling so much better already.

I haven't weighed in since August 2. I've been on vacation since then. My first weigh in after returning will be Thursday. My goal was to not gain more than 2#. So far my home scale says I've gained more than that but not much more. I'll take the number, know I've "earned" it and move on. It's nice to be back on a routine though. I also haven't seen a salad in over 2 weeks. Tonight is chicken buritos for dinner but tomorrow night I'm have a big salad!
