8 Pound Plan

This picture has nothing to do with the title of this post.  It is a sign that I don't want to show my "before" picture!!  My sister and I are on our new 8 Pound weight loss plan!  We have a goal to loose 8 pounds in the next 2 months.  If we feel really good, we may go to the 10 pound realm, but we are sticking to our 8 lb range!

My plan, you ask?  Well, I dug out my pilates DVD's and will be using them as well as walking my dog at least 1 mile every day.  I'd love to get a treadmill, but only if a garage sale will give a good deal!  I'm also going to try and be disciplined with my sweet tooth.  I'm not sure what that will mean, but I'll be giving an account of my snacking to my sis, so I guess as much as I want to share with her will be what I eat!

Why are we doing this?  I am not excited to enter the winter months at my upper weight range.  I'd like to not be at this range in general.  I don't feel like I am overweight or anything, but if I don't change my patterns now, this 8 pound goal will grow to something much more difficult.  I'd much rather tackle small goals in the weight loss realm.  (just in case anyone thought I was too caught up in weight loss!)

I'm not sure I'll keep up my progress here, but hopefully in 2 months I can share the results!
