Weekly Weigh In : Week 5

Starting BMI:  25.9  (computed here)
Starting weight: 196 lbs
Goal weight:  170 lbs

Last week's weight: 191.5 lbs
Current weight:  190 lbs

Last week's BMI: 25.3
Current BMI:  25.1
Goal BMI:  22.4

Pounds Lost this week:  1.5 lbs
Total Pounds Lost:  6 lbs
Pounds until goal: 20 lbs

1.  Reiterate my goal(s) and where I stand in reference to this goal.

- I want to focus in on this more and find ways to remind myself and build willpower.  I want to be healthy and eat healthy so that I can teach my children good habits as well.

2.  Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals.

-  I will only eat one sweet/dessert each week
        * I eat less sweets but def not one a week; work on this more
-  I will learn more about portions and portion control
        * I've tried to limit my portions and try not to graze between meals. 
-  Drink more water; drink water when I want to snack 

3.  Try to motivate others to join in on trying to become more healthy.
-  Joined FitnessPal on new android tablet and trying to get a friend to re-join with me (let me know if you need a friend)

4.  Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I've tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out, a photo update of my weight loss or anything else I feel like sharing.
-   I will be getting a hair cut this time next week (if I don't change me mind about going shorter).  Pictures to come.

Still finding it a challenge to feel in control of my diet and other health goals while living with the in-laws.  Hopefully we will hear more affirmative news on the house this week.
