Losing Weight by Taking Steps

For the last few years I have struggled with my weight, I have never weighed this much, not even at the end of any of my 3 pregnancies. It has been embarrassing and depressing, so when I was told the women in my family were going to do a Biggest Loser type of Weight Loss Competition I knew it was just what I needed for motivation.  The competition goes perfect with Walgreens new Steps with Balance Rewards. I receive almost daily emails from Walgreens as a Balance Rewards member. I learned of the Steps with Balance Rewards from an email and decided to check it out.

I became a member of the Steps with Balance Rewards and then I found out about the Step Up to Win Sweepstakes. There is an instant win everyday and then they teamed up with The Biggest Loser so the grand prize winner will get a stay at their choice of The Biggest Loser resort. 

After entering the Step Up to Win, I decided to look around the site. I checked out some of their health items and really like this pedometer heart rate monitor watch. I think I will reward myself with it after I lose a few pounds, maybe I'll use my reward points to buy it. 

After all of that I wanted to go shopping for some healthy items at Walgreens. You can see my entire shopping experience here. I wanted to find things that would help me lose weight. Just as I started looking in the weight management are I found a great deal on their SlimFast!

Once I got home I was so excited to start my weight loss journey. Here you can see I also picked up some multivitamins, a pill reminder and a low-calorie treat. Now all I need to do is stick to my healthy regimen and begin to exercise. It's so cool that for every weigh in and step I take I will be rewarded points through the Steps with Balance Rewards. Oh and by the way I have already earned over 300 points just for signing up, doing a weigh in and counting all my walking for the day.

I know I can do this, for me losing this weight is not just for myself but for my family, I want to be around for a long time. Also, it doesn't hurt that the family weight loss competition will have a cash prize for the lady that loses the most! So now that I have one more thing to motivate me. I am so ready! Make sure to keep up with me and my weight loss journey for the next few months and to see who wins in my family!
