I Love Stars!

Gosh, I really need to keep up on posting over here! I've been busy working on another project with my sister in the past week or so and I forgot about being here. I'm sorry!

So anyways, since I don't have a new video post ready yet, I'll catch up with how the past two weigh-ins went. I think I'm beginning to get a handle on what my body will do, and know what to do in order to make it function better. First: EAT! Second: Move daily! I've lost 5.4 pounds in the past two weeks....3.6 pounds on Valentine's Day and 1.8 pounds this Saturday. I really expected a small loss based on my track record this week, so I'm happy!

Who would have guessed how motivating stars could be for me? Last week, I got my 5% star at WW, and this week I got my 20 pound star. Also, giving myself stars for exercise and whatnot is really keeping me moving! When I don't exercise for a day, I feel like crap and more exercise makes my body feel better. Weird! Also, I've hit a new milestone: I haven't missed one WW meeting in 11 weeks and have made it through a whole round of books without quitting. When my leader gave me my 5% star last week, she told me I need to decide my next goal. With my success so far this year, I already had one in mind. I want to hit 30 pounds gone and my 10% goal by my birthday! I've averaged about 10 pounds each month since making a commitment to exercise (AGAIN!), so I think I can succeed! My birthday is March 18th and I have 9.2 more pounds to go. I will do it!

I have to scurry off to work, so I'll be back again soon with some more to share...I promise!

That is awesome! This time I am doing WW Online but when I was attending meetings (Before I got pregnant with my son), I was uber motivated by stars. I think that WW is onto something. Keep it up, you are doing great!

I am going to follow along, hope you don't mind. I think you have a good thing going here!

Congrats on 5.4 down.

I find those stickers motivating too. I've been giving myself different coloured stars (in my journal) for different exercise. Couldn't remember who I 'borrowed' this idea from: must have been you! Thanks :)
