Weight Loss Wednesday

Meet Veronica V. (V. for Vixen). She's my weight loss octopus. My weight loss group decided we needed something visual to help us along. Each week we set a goal. If we meet that weight loss goal, we get to braid a leg on our octopus. If we don't meet the goal, then no leg to braid. The person to braid all 8 legs first wins the pot.

My octopus couldn't just be a plain ole octopus...no! I needed to vamp her right up. She is my sassy alter ego, so she needed some fancy eyelashes to match the personality that I have given her.

I got to braid a leg my first week. Last week I lost .2 pounds. This week I gained the .2 pounds back. Darn dieting for being such a pain in the tush! Today there were only 2 of us not braiding a leg, and that was a pretty darn crummy feeling.

This is a neat way to motivate! And your octopus is fab!

Hang in there. It's not easy (we'd all look like Jennifer Aniston if it was!). I've been walking on the beach lately. I'm trying to shift the focus from losing weight to getting healthy.
