I will also be listing my progress.

I would love to hear about your progress and help keep you motivated!

Healthy Steps:
Well, I gained this week but you know what?  I don't really care.  I knew I would after spending 3 days snacking while I wasn't counting my food.  On the fourth day I decided I needed to start tracking again.  The good news here is that I know the Weight Watchers plan is working for me, I just need to stick to it.  Every week I have followed the plan I have lost.  That is the most consecutive losses each week in the last 3 years {counting the times when I had surgery and lost weight over a few weeks}!  I am excited to see how I do next Saturday since I am back on the plan and doing well.  I'm still struggling a bit with my daily exercise, but since finding my FitBit pedometer tracker in my purse I have been walking more each day. {I thought I lost it when I flew to take LB to his surgery.}

I'm also linking up to Slimmer this Summer hosted by Debbi and Mir.  Join us!

Slimmer This Summer Goals:
  • Track my calories and use proper portion control {Check}
  • Exercise at least 10 minutes per day, preferably more {Still struggling with this, but I am walking more during my days since finding my FitBit pedometer again.}
  • Drink at least 6 cups of water per day working my way up to 9 (48 ounces minimum) {Check}
My Weekly Weight Watchers Progress Report:

{The orange thing is a multi-vitamin. I have trouble taking mine.  They make me sick. I need to find another brand.  The drop is healthy oils.  I also have problems with this one since I don't cook with oils, but I need healthy fat to lose fat so I need to work on that too.}
