Weigh In - 11/7

Can you believe we are already a week into November? I know they say times goes by more quickly the older you get, but at this point I feel like I'll be 85 next month!!

OK, on to the weigh in.

I've lost 3 pounds this week! Last week I only lost one, so I guess this averages out OK. I'm really trying to make exercise more of a lifestyle and not a "I have to do this." I have dieted on and off (actually, yoyo-ed) for my entire 20's and I think this is the first time I am truly more focused on being healthy. I started this endeavor the least excited I've ever been. Ever. I started out just making a few small changes, seeing a few small results, decided I had to work more to get more and that's how it has taken off.

9.5 pounds to lose by 12/31!!!!

I found a great new food item at my Super T@rget this week. They have seasoned/mixed chicken from Chi-Ch!'s. I've only seen that brand of salsa before and when I read the nutritional info about the chicken, it wasn't bad at all. It's not seasoned cut up pieces of chicken, it is more of a consistency of shredded chicken bbq with lots of sauce. Anyway, it would be great on a burrito or whatever. I purchased some FF tortilla chips and put some lf shredded cheese on top and nuked it until the cheese was melted. Delicious chicken nachos for me on Sunday! I think it would also be good on a Mexican salad or something. Anyway, that's my food find for this week. If you decide to look for it, it's in a yellow bowl with red writing.

Hope you had a great week!

That is what I'm doing or starting to try to do is make small changes. Exercise use to be fun for me before Kids. Now I feel funny saying I have too. Time is flying by here also. I'll have to try your chicken idea this weekend. Oh,I wish I only had 9.5 to go. Congrats on the lost lbs. Good Luck!

Mystery Mom,

My 9.5 pound goal is just for the rest of this year. I still need to lose 40 more pounds next year.

Thanks for the comment,

I'm *so* proud of you! Great job! BTW, or Target here has unbelievable prices on tuna pouches, in case you're interested. Particularly the family sized ones.

Congrats on the 3 pound loss!!! I understand that exercising can be easy to talk yourself out of but don't... truly you will feel so much better emotionally, physically, mentally then before. Even if it is just a walk go for it.

Great job!!! I probably should have broken down my weight loss in parts like that! But I have lost 20 pounds in 2 months before, so I am hoping that I can do it again! I have almost lost 10 pounds (but it took longer than I expected), but it's not over till it's over! Right?!

Keep up the good work!
