Conversation #110: Family Shape-Up

So you may remember that I started WeightWatchers a few months ago, and I have continued following my plan.  This summer has been a struggle for me, but I sit at 136 lbs right now.  My goal from the beginning was 132 so I’m going to see if I can get down to that now.  Even if I never do, I feel great and I’m enjoying seeing my body change and become more tone.  I have been working out almost every morning, and I plan to continue on that for the rest of my life if possible.  I feel like I’m finally making a lifestyle change.

Well, my mom started WeightWatchers a bit after me, and than my oldest sister followed.  My other sis hasn’t actually officially signed up yet, but over Labor Day weekend we decided that we were doing this together.  They need motivators and I needed extra motivation so helping them helps me.  Since I have been doing it longest, I’m motivating my sisters to workout and eat better (and more just helping my mom be accountable and give support because she has a pretty good thing going).

I text them each morning at 6:30 to make sure they are up and exercising, and then we all keep in touch about what we did today and how it went.  We set weekly goals, and we are finalizing our long term goal and reward for reaching it (we are thinking about a girls’ trip).  Anyway, I will use my blog to track our journey.  Not sure which day each week, but I’m thinking maybe Sundays…we’ll see.

Anyone else working on making any lifestyle changes?
