Tell All Tuesday - Week 7

Yeah! I lost 1.8 today! That means I have 15.4 to go to meet my 20 lbs by July 4th goal! I really think I can do it or at least get VERY close! I just need to have another great week this week. By the way, I am at my LOWEST weight EVER with WW! I weigh less now than I did when I got pregnant with James...that is pretty exciting since I made this goal before his 1st Birthday!

Check out my post about our weekend. We were VERY busy and had a great time as a family! I am proud of several things about this past week. First of all I earned 46 Activity Points this week at the gym! Yeah for me!!! When we ate at Joe T's (my favorite restaurant), I noticed some major changes we have made. First, they didn't have to refill our chips cause we still had over half the basket. Second, David, Kirstyn, James and I all shared fajitas for ONE and had leftovers! This is amazing to me. This was our late lunch....David and I were still so full at dinner time that we just had some fruit. The old us would have polished off the chip basket, each had our own meal, and we probably would have eaten dinner that night! Yeah for changes in appetite!

I have to say thank you for all of the encouragement. I am getting it from everywhere! Yall are leaving it in the comments, emailing me, and talking to me in person! Thank you! Just this week alone I got an email from two different ladies that I have been friends with since we were in diapers! They both know how I have struggled with weight my entire life and have both been reading my blog and sent me an email with lots of kind words and encouragement! Thanks Chayla and Camille!

Okay, now for what I am going to do this week in order to lose big again! I am going to cut back on the Diet Sodas, again! Yes, I know I am addicted! I am going to continue to journal everyday! I am going to earn at least 28 AP this week. What are you doing this week to make sure you lose?

Look at how cute Kirstyn and James looked this morning in their Scooby Doo t-shirts that they got at Six Flags!

These two cuties are a big part of my motivation! I am teaching them good eating and exercise habits that should keep them from ever needing to set foot in a Weight Watcher meeting! I don't cook two meals at our house. The kids are eating healthy and balanced meals every day! If you ask Kirstyn why we don't order french fries, she will tell you 'because they aren't healthy and I want to get big and strong!' It feels good to know that I am at least getting this right!

OMG - thank you so much for stopping by my blog!! I think we probably live in the same area since we frequent the Joe T. Garcia's as well - LOL! Small world!

Congrats to you for losing 40+ pounds - that rocks! So do you participate in bootcamp?? I have really wanted to try that but I'm a big chicken and well now I'm pregnant so don't know if it would be a good idea. I think I'm going to join though after I have the baby - any advice??? I'm scared!

Thanks again for introducing yourself and I look forward to getting to know yoU!

Great job again Natalie. I know you are going to make your goal. And that is wonderful that you are teaching the kids good eating habits early.

Natalie, I am so very proud of you girl! It's hard work to change eating habits but you have stuck your nose to the grindstone and done it. Yay for you!

You should post some before and after pictures now or when you meet your goal. It's really motivating to see the differences in print like that.
