Hi guys!

I am so excited because this week we picked up at least 3 new members to the weight loss journey chronicles!  The more people we have in, the more motivated I feel.  Check out my mid week update for posts on other blogs of ladies joining and sharing their weight goals.

The purpose of my posts are to motivate not only me, but others who read who might be struggling.  I am tired of fad diets, yoyoing up and down, and never learning anything along the way.  So, as a recap, I am giving myself 52 weeks to lose 38 pounds.  I am on week 3 and I am breaking even to a pound down.

I weighed in this morning and was 167.6.  Yesterday morning, I was 165.6.  I know my weight will fluctuate as I go, so I am fine knowing that I at least lost some this week…  almost a pound I think.  Plus, it was a rough week, as you all probably know, so I am allowing this week to kind of rest.  At least I lost the one, right?  37 to go!

My husband is AWESOME and got me the Jenny McCarthy camera and work out DVD for Wii!  I am SO excited and my goal this week is to try to do the DVD at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days.  I am ramping my protein back up and really working in my water habit.  I kept forgetting last week to drink it until late in the afternoon.  It’s hard to start new habits.

So that is it for this week.  More protein, more water, and more exercise!

I hope I have good news next week!
