Weight coming off

After 3 months of consistently going to the gym at least 3 times a week for 20-30 minutes and being mostly on weight watchers I have been able to drop 10 pounds.

I did weight watchers over a year ago and was able to drop 10 pounds in less than 6 weeks but I was super strict about it. This time around I haven't been as strict and allow myself to have a treat every now  and then which I think has made the dropping weight a little bit harder.

The part I am the most shocked about is that I have for 3 months been going to the gym and running/jogging/walking on the treadmill. I have never before been able to keep this up for this long and can I say that I am finally starting to really like going to the gym and running or getting on the treadmill.

I always told myself before I turn 30 I must learn to enjoy running. I bike all summer long and so I am able to get my cardio vascular exercise in that way but once it gets too cold to bike I normally start gaining some weight during the winter as I just do anything but sit on my bum. The perfect thing is running since you can do that indoors so I am beyond thrilled that finally it is working out for me.

It really does take a long, long time to get to this point but if I don't go to the gym at least 4 times a week now I feel like something is wrong.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday I can go without having to take Bentley along since Jon is home at some point to help out with him but the other days I just take him with me and he either walks on the treadmill next to me or brings toys to play with.

I am glad I have a child who just rolls with the punches and does whatever for the most part.

Now I have 4 more pounds to go till I get to my goal weight and then I get to reward myself by going out and getting a new bathing suit for the summer and I am so excited about this.

Good for you! How do you track your points? Do you use an app?
