Weekly check in... week 13!!!

Oh me, oh my!!! 13 weeks already and feeling really good about some of the changes that we have made as a family in our eating and lifestyle changes! What a great family I have as they have embraced our new changes with little to no complaining and surprised at what they actually like to eat :)Turkey instead of red meat has become a staple and yogurt, fruits and veggies have replaced almost all snacky type foods that used to occupy our snack drawer! The biggest hurdle we have right now is that we are eating later at night then I would like to because we are always on a baseball/softball field until long after dinner time. Weekly hiking trips discovering new trails and areas around Colby College and the Kennebec River have become something that we all look forward to, even our little sweet doggy girl, Erin!! We have also started using the Colby College outdoor track once a week, what fun that is to watch the kids pretend to be in a race and running around the track, exercising but oh what fun!
So, here it is, I lost 1.5 lbs this week.... FINALLY 25lbs gone!!! Now I get to celebrate and treat myself to some spa time!!!!! That was my goal to reach, 25lbs and then I would use my gift certificate to a local spa for some pampering and me time!! I am so excited and top of my to-do list tomorrow morning is to call and make the appointment!!! I can't wait and I can't wait to tell Frank, he will be so proud and happy for me. He truly is my biggest cheerleader and knows just what to say to keep me motivated (thanks Babe!).
So, now I am focusing on 10lbs at a time instead of 25. It was tough going there at the end of it, slow losing and too many poor me moments so a really good friend who has lost 50lbs on WW(awesome job Katie!), told me not to focus so big, so I am going to try that and see how it goes! Also, she loaned me her WW books, as well as point finder so I am going to incorporate some of that into my calorie counting and see what that does for me. Either way feeling good and loving the way I am starting to look in smaller clothes that I have had to unpack!!!
Till next week, hopefully lighter in spirit and in body!
