New Year, New Me!

Pin It Now!
   Well after taking a year off from trying to lose weight with all that went on in our life last year I am back on track this year. I happy to report that upon starting Weight Watchers this past Thursday I am starting 7 pounds lighter than I expected so that was definitely a motivation booster. The other helpful aspect I have is that my friends at TOS have started a crew weight loss support group on facebook. It is so nice to be able to chat about our ups and downs and no there is no judgement.

Another motivation I am using this year is an idea I saw on pinterest. Where you take 2 jars one is marked pounds to lose and the other pounds lost. You put a marble in the pounds to lose jar for each pound you want to lose for me my ultimate goal is 112. SO I put 112 marbles in the jar, on the lid I put my starting date and the starting pounds to lose. The other jar is empty until at least Thursday when I go weigh in, on the lid of that jar I put finished and left a spot for the date and then 112 lost.
Here are pictures of my jars. I will be blogging about my weight loss journey every Thursday after I have weighed in to report my loss or gain. Feel free to blog about your weigh loss journey and leave your link in the comments section of my post.
  Good luck to all of you that are sharing in the same journey as I am.
