    Thank you @mtaratoot. January seems to be successful, so far. Still 11 days left. Lol. If only I could exercise like I want to! I will always do as much as I can.

    Oh, and concerning my goal, it is always in 10lb increments. I don't change it until I reach that number. It's a goal for the month, but with no grand expectations in 30 days time. If I lost 10lbs in a month, I'd be worried.

    The snacking will take a longer time to control but my husband will also be helping me keep an eye on it.

    FYI: I have adjusted my ultimate goal because when I hit 118 last month, I realized that I still wanted to try to lower my body fat to a normal range. I have been back and forth with 33% and 34% for about a month. My goal is 30% and we will see what happens. I tend to carry my weight around my waist and hips.

    *Currently, I have had 13 days (just counted it) of no peanut butter. I have gotten into a habit of eating it to make up for the protein and fat I was missing in a day, only a lot of carbs come with it too. I will not buy it anymore.
    *2020 is my commitment year to breaking 2 habits, crunchy, (no pretzels!) and peanut butter.
    Okay, it's in the world now and I will do it.
