Okay, okay. I know, they don’t have to cover 90 yards to get a down….but that’s not really yards I’m talking about, it’s pounds. I have lost another 2 pounds this week! I had a lapse a couple of weeks ago, but I hopped back on the wagon last week and got more focused on my weight loss goals.

Hubs has been doing my weight training (which isn’t much yet, believe me) and I’ve been walking three times a week, which needs to be six, but oh well. I’ve once again cut out sugar and am trying to eat low carb/low fat. I say “trying” because with three kids under the age of 10 and a husband, it’s not easy, as any other woman who’s on a diet knows. “Mom…can we puh-LEASE have those cookies?” “Honey…where’s the garlic bread to go with the veggie lasagna?” Sigh.

One day at a time, K. One day at a time. Breathe in. Breathe out. Focus. You ARE doing it!
How’s it going for you? Let me know you stopped by in the comments!

    Saw a compelling segment on cutting out sugar. It’s a smart move. I may have to work toward that. Great job on the two pounds! Have a good week!

    Congrats! I really need to jump on the wagon myself! I want to work more towards being healthier! A friend of mine has lost a LOT of weight simply by eating more meals of smaller portions. She had to go this way because her job requires her to sit most of the day. My problem is that I dont eat much during the day and then we eat dinner around 7:00. By that time, I am starving and overeat.
