Extreme Makeover - Week 1 update

Hallelujiah!!! Oops, not supposed to say that during Lent, but I really can't help myself. I have broken my plateau!!! I have you all to thank! Just getting a new wind in my sails, and following along with all you ladies that are on this personal health journey have done wonders for me. This is when I pray that I don't gain it back and my 1.4 lb. loss isn't some weird fluke, but the result of stepping up my cardio. I've just been jogging and walking on the treadmill. Waiting for some real spring weather to get outside to do it.

I've been really watching what I eat. I do keep a food journal, but alow myself pizza and a couple cookies on the weekend. I find this the best time to have a "cheat" meal, since I have 3 days to "work it all off" ;0

Hopefully you all had a great week!!

Favorite low calorie snack food is pretzels right now. That's for when I need something salty. For my sweet tooth {which I seem to have all the time} I love the fiber one chocolate and oat bars. Only 140 cals and 2 points I believe because they are high in fiber. It's the best replacement for a candy bar IMO.

Woo hoo!! You go girl! I'm so glad you broke through that plateau---I knew you would! Isn't that the greatest feeling?? Keep it up!

I also think the Fiber One bars are only 2 pts b/c of ll the fiber. Have you had the Chocolate Raspberry one?? You'll really flip over that one. Mmmm...

Congrats on breaking the plateau - those are the worst! Is everyone on here doing Weight Watchers? Am I the only lonely one who isn't?

GOod for you! I just bought those Fiber 1 bars this weekend. I really like them! I was looking for something to up my fiber intake.

It's so nice to have people to talk to about this and get ideas from!
