minus 3.0

not too shabby. that sounds like a lot my friends, but it was over three weeks. haha. i've had a crazy couple of weeks, with my kids getting sick and going to disneyland with my family, so blogging took the back seat. i guess a pound a week is okay (slow and steady wins the race, right?)... i just get so impatient. i just need to think of it as a lifestyle change and not a diet, because if i keep eating the way i am now, i will just gradually drop the weight. and it's not like i'm deprived... last night i had a bowl of that dreyer's slow-churned cookie dough ice cream. man, that stuff is to die for. you'd never know it has less fat and calories in it. if any of you dieters out there are in need of a little treat, go and try any of those slow-churned flavors... you can't go wrong.

i decided that i'm going to make a mini-goal of losing at least 1 pound by next week. hopefully that will help keep me motivated to just keep going with the weight loss instead of always feeling like it's too hard and too hopeless and i have so far to go. how about you people? what do you do to stay motivated?

First - congrats on your losses!!
A pound a week is an awesome pace!

Second... I would LOVE to have some slow-churned ice cream sitting in my freezer, however, The Cub and I, well, be both suck in the 'have one reasonable portion' department and the half-gallon would literally disappear overnight, me thinks.

How do I stay motivated... Well, I guess I don't always... but after a week or two of crazies (which is precisely how I act when I'm not exercising!), I always come back to being on-track... Mostly because I like to have clothes that fit me. Yeah, it boils down to vanity over here.

Congrats on the weight loss - keep it up!

And I'm with thickchick about the motivation. I slip up every now and again, get really grumpy when my clothes are tight, and that usually kicks my butt back in gear!
