Weekly Weigh-In: Week #3...or is it 5? maybe 6?

I kind of fell off this band wagon. Yes, I stopped blogging about it but that doesn't mean I fell off the weight loss journey band wagon!

I have actually lost 11 pounds according to WiiFit (BTW I hate that it 'groans' when I step on it, like I'm hurting it or something). Tomorrow I have an appointment at the doctor's so we will see how much I have lost according to their scales.

We went to the Georgia National Fair on Saturday. I wanted to ride this ride with my daughter. I had trouble getting in and getting Sweet Pea in too was no piece of cake. I seriously just wanted to cry. And although my mother-in-law says she can see a difference, this made me feel discouraged because there were many rides I couldn't ride because of my weight.

But I'm on the right path and I have to try and remember that. I have totally changed my eating habits. I don't eat after 7 p.m., I don't snack on salty or sugary foods like I use to, and I have cut my portion sizes by more than half. I aim to work out 45 minutes, 5 times a week. To be more realistic it has been like 30 minutes, 3 times a week. But that's more than I was doing before. And that is on top of housework. Which by the way, working out has given me more energy to do housework. Who would have thought?

Still not comfortable with any pictures but I do feel comfortable enough to leave a weight loss ticker on my blog, and that's something right? :)

*This is a ticker for my small goal. Will keep updating until I reach my big goal. :)*
