Weekly Weigh-in {August 1st}

     I lost four pounds this week! After a gain last week, I was really hoping I'd lost what I had gained and maybe a bit more. I did it!

     Each week, I write down what I'd like to see on the scale the next week. I use it to focus on staying on track and keeping my goals in sight. I typically keep my weekly goal in a 1-2 pound range as that's a healthy rate of loss each week. WW averages a 1.25 pound loss for those who stay on track each week. If I use that average, it will take me approximately 120 weeks to reach my goal weight. That's just over two years. Ouch. That's hard to think about, but I know that if I just stick with it, how long it takes to get to my goal really doesn't matter. What matters is that I live a new, healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. I'm only 36 years old and hope to have at least another 50 years in me, so what's two years out of that to work towards a goal of a healthy life? It's nothing and it'll be totally worth it!

      I spent a lot of my free time this week working on a project for our house. I've wanted family rules in our home for years, but never found any in a store that I loved enough to buy. So, I finally decided that I'd just make it myself! It took many hours to complete, as I hand-painted it, but I think it was worth it. It measures 2x4 feet and I have it hanging in the center of our house, where we can't help but see it daily. So, this week I'll have more activity built in since I won't be sitting down working on a project! :)
