Hey Ashly -

It looks like you have a solid plan in place, so the trick is just keeping on it! Remember, even if you slip temporarily off plan, it won't matter much as long as you GET RIGHT BACK ON. You're making changes to your lifestyle so you can control your weight for life.

Best of luck to you. Keep posting...I can't wait to get to know you better!

Amanda
