Weight Loss Update - August 2014

So I'm back on Weight Watchers. MFP just doesn't work for me. Weight Watchers does the trick. Since rejoining on the 9th of August (I think...) I've lost about 10 lbs. I say about because my weight tends to fluctuate between 5-10 lbs daily...I'm not joking. I hate it. Anyway, I've also started a waling regime with some co-workers and because of that I can tell that I'm losing inches. I don't keep track of inch measurement...maybe I should start...but there have been several indications.
1. My watch is loose. It used to pinch my wrist now I have a little sliding action.
2. My maxi dresses/skirts are longer, I'm assuming it's because there's less of my wideness taking up the material.
3. My shirts hang more loosely. I wish my pants would be looser but hey, I'll take what I can get.
4. A few people have told me my face appears slimmer. IDK. I can kind of tell but not really.
5. My shoes are bigger on my feet.
Here are my goals for September (I know it's early but I need the next week or so to get my mind right):
1. Lose 20 lbs.
2. Work out at LEAST 3 times a week (5 per week is the ultimate goal)
3. No sodas. I was doing really well on this but the afterschool snack cart is back at work and things are just all messed up.
4. Walk 75 miles (I see a lot of people doing the 100 mile challenge but I don't want to set myself up for failure)
5. Work my way up to 10 continuous rotations with my fitness hoop (I'm gonna post about this soon).

BOOK REVIEW: "I Almost Forgot About You" by Terry McMillan

While I'm not a Terry McMillan fanatic, I do usually enjoy her books. This title was hard to read and confusing from the very beginning. I understand that Georgia is on a mission to find herself but the books is long and gets boring often. Plus there are way too many characters to keep up with. I will still pick up a Terry McMillan book in the future but I do not recommend this book.

BOOK REVIEW: Habit Changers by M.J. Ryan

I really enjoyed reading this book. Habit changing is one of things I've focused on in my 30s as I try to make changes in my life that will make me a better person. This book makes habit changing actually seem doable. I have learned how to reach my goals by breaking things down and doing it in a way that makes it easier and more likely for me to accomplish. I recommend this book to anyone looking to make positive changes in their life.

Here's two links to purchase the book.

Do you have any tips for effectively changing habits?

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …
