That's how many pounds I am down. I am hopeful that next Monday will bring 1.1lbs at least so I can be at the 15lbs mark.

I have 44.1lbs left before I want to try on a wedding dress. I am hoping that by the end of May I will be close enough to try on a dress. That gives me 4 months. I know I can do this. Weight Watchers is such an awesome program, if you are on the fence or considering it - I whole heartily say DO IT!

One of the things I really need to start doing is getting active. I have the treadmill, it is just at my parents. I am hoping come March I will be able to start running C25k again . I have to get moving!

Do you have any tips on how to move in the winter? What about weight watcher recipes?

First week of WW (almost)

Well tomorrow is the dreaded weigh in. I have done well for the most part and surprisingly I feel better just after one week of trying to move more, eat less and drink a lot more water. I had a few weak moments this week and with the start of AF I knew it would be tough, I did ok though and made it through. I have been making better choices and really thinking twice before eating anything. I am nervous, anxious and excited to step on the scale tomorrow.

Today we are taking Justin's mom back to the airport. I am not sure if we will stop at IKEA or do any shopping - it is a little too cold for anything outdoors if you ask me (8 degrees here).

The snow ruined our plans to go home to see my parents and get the treadmill. I have to start moving more. I felt so much better when I was active! How do you cold weather girls stay active in the winter? Any tips?

I am doing a guest post this week for one of my favorite weight loss blog. I am excited to share more of my story on her site and hopeful that I will in turn gain some support!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I have to do a teacher's in-service tomorrow :( So no Monday off for me! I will gladly go back to my 4/10s next week though!

Have a great day!!

Ha, how appropriate! Today I am linking up to show off my ring :)

Justin gave me it yesterday morning, sunrise on the beach. It was absolutely perfect. I will share the full story soon!

I picked out my ring on a whim. I fell IN LOVE with it the minute I saw it and he picked it up in August and made me wait till our vacation to Florida on a perfect sunrise morning to propose.

Vacation...all I ever wanted...

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring
And said, marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes
