    I will stay under my new calorie goal.
    I will work out for 40 minutes.
    I will express my wellness mantra.
    On the road 7 of the next 10 nights. Focus...
    I am expressing gratitude that I do have some healthy eating habits. Love yogurt for breakfast and have always been a big fan of oatmeal with fruit. Makes it easier to have these as "go to's."

    Good day.

    Well under my calorie goal but didn't work out.
    Expressed my wellness mantra

    For today:

    I will stay under my calorie goal
    I will work out for 40 minutes
    I will make good choices while dining out
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I am expressing gratitude for the ability to set my own travel schedule.

    Weight loss is still working, but I need to get back to the fitness part of things. So JFT Monday
    1. Brush/floss before bed :smiley:
    2. evening walk of at least 30 minutes. :neutral: Did more housework in the evening than normal

    @TerriRichardson112 both the weight loss and the unaided steps are fantastic. You are doing awesome

    My JFT Tuesday is to squash the greedy selfish voices in my head that want sugary carbs and promote and listen to the ones that know better. Translation: Don't give in to the sugary cravings.
    and brush and floss before bed.

    This is my first time posting here. I love the concept!

    Just for today I will ...
    1. Track everything
    2. Be kind to myself

    It's a great thread. I feel more accountable when I post & gain inspiration from so many members. Best wishes!

    Felt like I was slipping last night. An old habit of snacking unhealthy foods in the evenings. I'm amazed at how much more I'm paying attention to the "why" I'm eating now. I measured out lite popcorn & put away the bag. This was the hardest part LOL. I tracked it... Clothes are fitting better...so worth it! I've struggled w/drinking enough water & have finally worked my way up.

    JFT
    Maintain control of eating/activity.
    More protein at lunch today.
    Walk & weights. While walking listen to podcast "Halfsizeme".
    Work on art project.
    Be supportive to a loved one.
    Update resume.
    Having company this Sunday-start preparing (menu, special activity for kids, etc).
    Sort books for book sale at church (15 mins)
    Read something for inspiration (not necessarily related to weightloss).

    Good health is priceless!

    Today I am either going to start a conversation with a total stranger or with someone from work I have never talked to other than about work stuff. Going to be my hardest challenge yet. PLAY BALL !!

    I just read through a little bit, and I like this idea a lot! It's so easy to get discouraged by the 'big picture' of losing weight (have already lost 100 and gained back 40...have another 80 or so to go), but taking it one day at a time seems a lot easier to manage.

    Just For Today:
    1. Stick to the eating plan I mapped out this morning (going out to eat and have pre-selected what I'm going to eat)
    2. Go to bed at a reasonable hour (not midnight like the last few nights...aiming for 10/10:30)

    If I can manage those two I'll be doing great! The bedtime is harder for me I think.
