Weight loss and other updates

I lost 2kgs this week! My weigh in is on Thursdays and I am hoping for another kilo. I have been a lot more conscious of what I eat now that I have to write it down. I have still had a few little treats here and there, but I have stayed under my points and am making healthier choices.

My house is coming along. I have replaced some of our curtains, put new ones up where there wasn't any (I will have pictures soon).

I have also completed quite a few craft projects I had been planning such as dream catchers, hair clips, an advent calendar, head bands from old t-shirts and final put pictures in frames to hang on my wall.

I have finally been sticking to sort of cleaning schedule too. It is getting much easier as time goes on since I know my routine. I still hate cleaning, but hey it has to be done!

I have almost finished decluttering and it is feeling so good! Mind you there is still lots of room for improvement if I wanted, but I am content with how we are going for now.

So what have you been up to?

Weight Watchers Online

The other week I won a 6 month membership to Weight Watchers online, which I was pretty excited about. I put off joining until yesterday since I knew I would be traveling and too busy to even think.

So yesterday I logged in and signed up to start my 6 months. I had no idea it is so expensive. The program is good and does make it easy to track stuff so that's good. There are a few things I disagree with, but overall I think it is a good program.

Apparently if I stick to it I should lose 2kgs this week, which is like a kick start. I am 12kgs outside the highest weight according to BMI (which is NOT the best way to judge your size anyway once you start to lose weight and build muscle, but anyway...)

It's 5 weeks until Christmas and ideally I would like to lose 5kgs by then, if not more or at least reshape my body some more. I am not overly unhappy with my size, more unhappy with the wobbly belly and the fact nothing is toned.

So onto of doing Weight Watchers I am upping my exercise (which I can track on there as well.) My husband keeps saying he wants to be healthy too, but actions speak louder than words.

Today is day 2 for me. I started at 84kgs and need to be 72kgs or less.

Who's with me to lose 5kgs by Christmas?
