Get Skinny

I know I have posted a billion times about my never-ending journey to lose these last few pounds!  I dream of the day when I can step on the scale or put on the pants that make me say Yes I finally made it!  I am so non self disciplined when it comes to dieting... I live on a diet full of cheats.  I have had a few friends who have really been working and lost some weight lately or are determined to work hard to lose those extra pounds and they have inspired me to do the same.  I am not the kind of "dieter" that is strict enough to restrict myself from certain foods and I don't have the time or money or really even the want to go on one of those premade plans so Weight Watchers definitely works best for me but.... you have to track your food and that is what I fail to do so often!  It is so easy for me to get caught up in everything else and forget or just not do it.  But thanks to some inspiration and motivation from my friends, I am determined to stick to it at least for a few months.  Plus I bought some new bikinis last year and I refuse to go back to my mom suit this year!  So a few plans I have made to help this go round...

1 - EXERCISE -- I am the world's worst about coming up with excuses to NOT exercise.  I always enjoy running and working out when I do so I am not sure why I tend to avoid it so much.  A few friends and I have signed up for a 5k in April and I really want to run a half marathon later this year so hoping that motivates me to get moving a little more.
2 - Take small steps -- I like to see results right away and I know that is not always a good thing when it comes to getting fit and skinny.  Instead of focusing on my long term goal, I have made small monthly and weekly goals to help me to stay on track.
3 - Plan Plan Plan -- I have always been a pretty good planner but I am making a little extra effort to really plan out my points for the week before I even get started.  This way I can see where I have room to wiggle plus it takes the stress of planning each day out of the equation!
4 - Weigh in and track my progress - I have set up a journal to log my points and exercise every day as well as to log weekly weigh-ins including not only pounds but also percentages and progress to my goals.

So I am raising my glass of water for a toast to another round of weight watchers!!!
