Ok I need some encouragement here. I am only back to induction for day 2 today....but I again am battling the choc. cravings monster. I KNOW that once I get past the weekend I won't even bat an eyelash at it - but you know it's the "getting there" that's a killer.

So in reading today's chat, Leenie's post got me thinking and I want you all to help motivate me please!....maybe we could make a complete list (ie cut and paste and keep adding your ideas so we can all print off one full list in the end). I will start with Leenie's below

What are we looking forward to this spring?

Spring flowers
Wearing only a sweater - no coat (to hid under)
Wearing shorts instead of long pants or long skirts
Open windows
Morning walks with my kids in the jogger
Daylight lasting longer - for a bikeride(?)

Fresh air
Hearing birds sing
Not having to worry about soggy snowsuits/mittens

Daffodils and Tulips
Some blue in the skies!
Letting people really see the weight loss with teeshirts and shorts instead of bulky winter sweaters and jeans!

Eating lunch outside
Reading a book under my patio umbrella
Shaving my legs and not having a forest!
Wearing some body glimmer lotions, and pouty lip gloss.

Early sunrises
Thunderstorms
Snow run-off
Peepers singing at night - the little frogs ;)
Robins sitting on eggs in my garage
NO MORE FREEZING COLD HANDS (hate this!)
No more snow in my gloves, boots, life
