35 by 35! #5


Good morning, friends!  Week four wrapped up beautifully ... sharing time!

Progress:
I've shed 3 more pounds!  Woohoo!

As I look back at my weight loss over the past four weeks I can't help but laugh!  I initially aimed to lose two pounds per week.   Instead I lost 1 pound the first week, followed by three pounds the next.  Last week I dropped only one pound, but the pattern repeated this morning when the scale revealed there were three less unwanted pounds of me today!  It has all balanced out and I'm thrilled to be right on track!  

Although I have a long way to go, I am starting to feel better which motivates me all the more to resist temptation and push forward towards my goal!

How are you doing this week?



Food Find:

Who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter? Such a delicious combo!  These yummy bars have a fraction of the calories you'd spend on those tempting candy bars at the grocery store check out, yet I think they are every bit as delicious!  I've been happily using 3 WW points towards this "skinny candy bar" when my sweet tooth is begging for chocolatey goodness!



Tip of the Week:
Make the most of gorgeous Summer weather and find excuses to squeeze in extra exercise during normal every day activities.  Choose to walk instead of grabbing those car keys if heading somewhere nearby.  Next time you go shopping, rather than circling a store parking lot to find something closer, go ahead and take that further parking spot.  Simple choices that add steps to your day, in time may take inches from the waistline too. ;)



Until next Thursday, remember ...





REMINDER: My comments section is officially a CHEERING SECTION on Thursdays!  Let's cheer each other on, friends!  I'd love to hear how you're doing too!  Struggles, triumphs, things you've found helpful...feel free to share! A BIG THANKS to each of you who have left encouraging comments, or have joined in on this challenge yourself!  The interactions I've had with each of you have served as an incredible inspiration and encouragement! Bring on week 5!

  1. OH yes those bars look so yummy when I can have sugar again so will be on my good to snack on list!

    You're rocking it girl!

    I did go off my diet on Sunday, first time in over 9 months. I'm paying the price for the birthday splurge but this week will be so much better.

    I've been getting out do my walks since the weather is permitting.

I would love to hear from you today!! I enjoy reading each and every comment I receive. (I do moderate them before they're published. Gotta keep it family friendly! ;)) My preferred means of replying to you is via email, so please make sure you aren't a "no-reply blogger". It's sad when you take the time to leave a sweet lit'l comment, but I'm unable to reach you with my appreciation. If I can't reply to you through email, I will reply directly below your comment, right here on this post. ;)

Thanks for visiting! Have a fabulous day! :*)
