Plan of attack

In my last post I forgot to mention how I plan to lose weight and how much.

My Mom had asked me to do Weight Watchers (WW) with her some time ago. I know that she wants me to be healthy and she knows that I'm not happy with the way that I am now. So I did not take this as an insult. On Memorial Day she challenged me to lose 10 lbs with her because that's what she is hoping to lose. So here we are.

I plan on doing WW from home. Since we can not afford for me to go to the meetings I will follow the program since I'm familiar with it and weigh in with her weekly (for accounability). I will also give her $2 a week as opposed to WW's $10/week. The plus side to this all is that once I've reached my goal then she will give me my money back. What an incentive, right?! I was pretty humbled when I stepped on the scale in front of her for the first time. Here I am 25 years younger than her and almost weigh almost 2 of her! Good thing she's my Mom and loves me no matter what, right?! :D

I plan to set short term goals at first. My first goal is 5% which would be 12 lbs. (See the goals chart.) I am hoping that if I set short term goals then they'll be easier to reach. We'll see. I plan to reward myself once I hit a goal whether it be a coffee, new piece of clothing, facial, pedicure, etc (I haven't figured out that part yet).

Any thoughts or suggestions to success are always appreciated!
