Good Week for Dawn

It's so good to be doing this as a challenge instead of me just trying to do it all by myself. I think a challenge is the best way for me to lose the weight. It makes me more responsible. So my points for this week are 75 ( 69 + 5 for $ + 1 for weight loss). I would have had a perfect point week if we hadn't have gotten back so late from boating on Saturday...I didn't get my exercise in. You would think I would have gotten some in while boating but I've decided my skiing days are over so I was the "flag holder". Not much exercise in that. I tried very hard this week. I was careful to put small portions on my plate and they looked so tiny sitting there on that big plate, but I was satisfied at the end of eating. I truly did not eat sweets! We're having a BBQ today so I will allow myself a small dessert, which of course, will veto the point for the day but I lost 3.8 pounds this week and proud of that. I think getting exercise in on the weekends will be hard. And like Denise, I'm worried that the closer to the end I get, the harder this will be. I guess we'll just have to see. I'm hoping to not have an "end" but keep on incorporating these things into my life. That's where the true success will come.
