Default I spy...

So, the kids and I were playing this today -- thought we could give it a try here --

List three things you spy in a room in your house that would not have been there before your lifestyle change -- I'll go first

The treadmill in the middle of the dining room.
The WW recipes posted to my fridge.
My very own cabinet full of "my food".

Weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint.

-My resistance band

This is a cute idea Shelby and I look forward to reading everyone's responses. Here are my three:

1) My hand weights

2) The bowl of fruit on my counter

3) The sneakers I use to exercise and walk with each day

I have a treadmill in my dining room too
A Nordic Track in my office
A fit, way energetic, smiling and muscular jack russell dog- he was getting chunky until we started walking miles a week. I wish my progress was as speedy and apparent as his!

I like this!!

1. 5 beautiful spiral notebooks where I have written down my daily food plan, logged what I eat, and kept track of my calories.
2. lots and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables in the kitchen and fridge
3. a full closet of clothes that are way too big on me - ready to be packed up.
4. one more - I think the most important one for me - 4 wonderful meditation CD's - different approaches. I listen to one almost everyday.

Move ticker, move!
Next Mini Goal - 214

I can't lose 100 pounds....but, just maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times.

What a great game

In my house, I now spy:

1. walnuts instead of potato chips
2. lots and lots of different kinds of beans in the pantry
3. grapes and not chocolate in the fridge
one foot in front of the other

Too cool. To make it a little more challenging, I will only do things that I can see from my vantage point as I type this.

*Handweights ranging in size from 2 lbs. to 12 lbs.
*MP3 player charging for my daily dose of exercise
*3FatChicks on my computer screen! (Is that cheating? Okay, one more then...)
*MY FEET! I never used to be able to see them when I looked down

Calendar tracking daily weight by the scale.
Espresso/Latte machine on the kitchen counter (I know you're laughing, but I finally found a way to get the dairy allotment in. Previously I either just overlooked/ignored this part of a "diet" as I couldn't stand milk. Or I ate it in pudding, yogurt, LF or LC ice creams etc. & got intestinal cramps. Steaming it seems to break it down enough that it doesn't upset my stomach. Although I don't drink coffee, mixing the steamed milk with espresso gives it a flavor that allows me to swallow the milk.)
Watering can on the kitchen counter so I'll remember to water the garden boxes on the patio.
