Weigh Down Wednesday

It is that time of the week again. 
I weighed in this morning and the turtle is still on the move.
I am down another pound.

I am late in posting today and have been thinking about what to write all day.
It does not seem enough just to give you my news, but to be honest, I am no health expert. 
I know what you know.

Eat less, exercise more.
Eat fruits and vegetables and whole grains.
Omega- 3s in salmon and flax are good for you and Hydrogenated Oil found in so many products is not!
Processed foods, corn syrup and foods with many ingredients are bad for you.
Hiking, walking, riding bikes, swimming and breathing fresh air are good for you.

It does not mean that I always eat the right foods, even though I know exactly what they are. 
I does not mean that I don't reach for the brownies when some luscious strawberries are sitting right on the counter. 
It does not mean that I get out and joyfully exercise every day.


But, I feel better and I look better when I make the right choice. 
And it really always comes down to that.
There are natural consequences for our choices.
Always.
We just have to make the choices with the good consequences.

I am now back into my pre-pregnancy clothes.
Goodbye maternity clothes FOR-EV-ER!
 (Picture Squints in Sandlot saying this)
Thanks for helping to get me there.
I just love you ladies and your comments.

But, I am going to discontinue Weigh Down Wednesdays at this point.
I am going to keep going on my journey, but I just don't feel like I have much in the regards to quality posts to say regarding this issue anymore.

When school starts up again for the boys, I may start training for a Sprint Distance Triathlon and maybe, just maybe, some of you will want to join me.
Perhaps we'll call it Fit Fridays or Triathlon Training Tuesdays.

So thanks again and for one last time-

What's the low down on your weigh down?

Good job on your weight loss! My weigh in is not technically till Friday so I need to wait and give myself a full week from last Friday (which at that point I had lost 3 lbs), so heres hoping for at least one more pound, though 2 would be better and 3 more would be excellent!

Stopping by from SITS.... About 3 years ago, I lost 75 pounds. Since February, I have tried very hard to lose more. I just reached losing 30 more last week! It is very hard! I really like your blog!

A pound of FAT lost is like 3 pounds of fat that seem to sneak up on you when your not trying... So to me a pound lost is like A LOT. Im proud of you! Remember what you told me... wanna do it the right way with me... And I am still the same and you are on our way. You look great! Be proud Girl!
