Wednesday Weigh-In and Charms

I got 2 bright and shiny charms to add to my 10% keychain today - the 16 week charm which means I have been in attendance that long....AND....the 25 pound charm! I hit 25 pounds today, and I am thrilled.

What am I doing that is working?
-Exercising a lot. I do the stairmaster, I have been running, and I love going to spin class. Last week I earned 35 activity points.
-Following the WW plan. Staying on my points is key.
-Pre-tracking. If I pre-track my day, I don't eat anything that I didn't already type in. This has been good for me and keeps me in check mentally.
-Talking about it. I talk to my friends and family about my progress and what happened in meetings, etc. And I blog!
-Going with friends. This helps us all motivate each other. I was out of town for today's meeting and the first person I called with my news was my friend Anna, who has been doing this with me since the beginning.
-Choosing healthier foods. I'd rather eat a sweet potato than 2 oreo cookies - this is a big change for me. Yes, i still want the oreos....who doesn't....but I would rather choose the more satisfying potato 9 times out of 10.

I have dropped 2 pant sizes and 1 shirt size. It's exciting and motivating.

You can do it, too!!!

Last day of Whole 30!

Today is my last day of doing Whole 30! It has been a challenge. Yes, I have cheated a couple times, but only very minor cheats. For example...
