Fun Reminders!

Posted by: Hilary In: Weight Loss Goal

Today was a productive day.  I weighed in for the first time in awhile.  I’m not all the way back up to my highest again and for that I am psyched!  I was a little nervous about the possibility, dodged that bullet though.  I bought a new crock pot, which I’m excited to use, and then went grocery shopping for some healthy food.  Then I made a new recipe from my Hungry Girl cookbook, Chicken Enchilada Casserole.  It was very good.  (Only would have been better with a dollop of sour cream on top, mmmmmm)

Heather and I got this great idea from someone on Pinterest the other day.  It’s a visual reminder of all the weight that we lose.  We have a large vase full of colored gems and some flowers in the middle and on each side, we have an empty (for now) vase for ourselves.  Each gem represents .5lbs and every week we weight in, we’ll take from the center jar the amount of gems that equal how much weight we lost.   It will be a fun way to see our achievements!

Here are a couple pictures for you!

My jar has the green ribbon.  It matches my bedroom.  It’ll be a fun thing to keep on my dresser once I have lost all my weight!
