  1. Time to celebrate breaking the habit. What would be a great mini-celebration for you? Pick a few rewards and let's set some goals for them. (No, I'm not subbing while you go to the Caribbean.) They can be weight goals, but can also be sugar free days, portion control or exercise too.

    Journaling looks complete. Make a note of your water intake too when possible.

    Great job thus far!

  2. Shoes. I really need new shoes. And a new alarm clock. I have to use two clocks right now to function as one.

    My biggest, hugest goal is just to fit into the clothes I have and that I've received. There's a super cute pair of capri pants in the latest shipment of freebies and I have them on a shelf where I can see them every time I look in my closet. I would say that I have pants on today and a skirt on yesterday that already feel like they are fitting better. :)

  3. Sorry to hear about the cold. Maybe some weekend rest and sunshine will do the trick.

    Exciting to hear there's some progress already. Journal through the weekend, pick the best day to weigh yourself, and I'll review the week's diet on Monday.

    Leaving on the train at 4:30 to WashMo for a weekend wedding. Jake is joining us, Adam is in the wedding, so it should be a fun family (minus Shaun) time.

    Btw, I modified the food tracker doc I sent u and posted it on my blog. Have had lots of diet questions lately. Everyone wants to get moving. Only some of you are doing anything about it. Congrats!
