Incentives

Confession time................ Controling my weight has been my life long problem. For the past year and a half, I have been on Weight Watchers and have done well. I lost 45 pounds and gained back three in the last few months. I'm struggling to stay within the points limits each day. I want to lose another 10, 20, 30 or possibly 40 pounds. Today it dawned on me that summer is just around the corner and if I want to wear something acceptable for hot weather, I better get back on track. It is so much easier to look decent in the winter with sweaters, jackets, and sweats. I want to find comfortable and appropriate clothes for summer too, but it would be much easier if I lost more weight. The word SUMMER is now my mantra. I posted a sign on my pantry door and on my refrigerator.
I sure hope these signs work as an incentive to work towards a lighter Bonnie for the long hot summer.

My biggest downfall lately has been this tasty treat from Trader Joes - Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds. Dark chocolate is heart healthy and almonds are the healthiest of the nuts. I just don't think it is proper to eat the whole container full in one day!

Good idea - you might want to check my blog on weight loss & maintenance.

I'm 65; have never been over-weight, so I put up 'my secrets' for staying slim all my life.

I get a bit tired of reading the normal 'weight loss' forums, and information because you have to 'wade' through too much; too much advertising, and pop-ups.

I enjoyed looking at your blog; like your quilts, and love your cat!

I'm originally from Michigan, so I know the 'weather' you deal with.

Happy spring.... Diane
