my journey

I am so excited to finally have hit my WW goal after all the ups and downs I’ve had over the last 4 months.

I think I have finally figured out that only using my daily points and activity points I earn each day (and not touching my 49 WPA) seems to be working for me to see and feel consistent results.

The biggest lessons I have learned so far in my journey is:
 -TRACK everything you eat!!!
(dietSNAPS has been my most awesome/fav tracking tool)

-Have a support/buddy system!!
(I would have quit long time ago on my own.)

-You have to make healthier food choices.
(I now crave fruits and veggies instead of sugar!)

-Allow yourself to have the things you love as long as you plan for it.
(Cookies and chips & salsa are still like cryptonite to me-
but I am in control when I plan when I eat them.)

-You HAVE to put YOU first.
(I have 4 kids and a military husband–
its not easy but it makes all the difference in your world!)

and lastly….
-My motto the last 4 months has been:
Don’t let one overindulgence or bad meal throw you off track.
Own it, account for it, learn the triggers, and move on.
That is life and always will be.
Our lives will be what we make of it.
and I want to have a life full of health and vitality!!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
