Yesterday the scales gave up 2.6 lbs for me! Woo, woo!
While it may not be a HUGE loss, it was overnight. I mentioned it to a young man and he seemed to disbelieve it. Huh! Youth. Wait till he finds out about things like Type 2 Diabetes, fluid retention, getting old, high blood pressure and arthritis. When his body no longer responds to his every demand....he will lean the hard way.
I worked for over a week to earn that "overnight" loss. The evil scales do not betray the young and healthy. Aging stinks, but we can make the most of it. I am not ready to give up and let go. Already did that and lost (actually gained weight)......but the war is far from over. The Battle of the Bulge continues.
I watched this young man of 17 help himself to dinner last night......rigatoni loaded with cheese.......fresh Italian bread and chocolate chip cookies. The food was placed next to me and smelled wonderful. But I was steadfast in demurring. They were shocked that I didn't partake, but I explained my loss and told them I am not about to load up on carbs. Fortunately, there were tons of young folks there and they went ahead and enjoyed the dinner. I wasn't jealous though. Those young adults were a joy to be around last night.
This weekend will be rough.......young Trick or Treaters seeking candy at our doors.........handing out all that sweetness. But, beware. The price to pay for all that junk food is high. I plan to resist.
So far for the October Challenge I have lost 8.4 lbs. this month. Woo, woo, woo, woo...........Happy Dance in progress!

How should I spend this day? I will never get it back again, so I will spend it wisely. My focus these days is getting fit and healthy......SO......I will do my cardio. I will earn all 24 Spark points......a walk DVD, elliptical time and a pool workout. Then I will continue to track all my food for the day. It is not an easy task, but it can be pleasant.
I will take time to enjoy the smell of a damp fall day........the sound of leaves crunching under my feet. I will smile at those I meet and spread some sunshine around......even though we have not seen the sun around here in days.
I will call a friend and chat, share my day with someone I care about.
I will cook a healthy dinner for my family.....and share it with them.
Tonight is bible study and I will go enjoy some wise words, smile and enjoy some good company. My soul will grow in love.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life........I will make the most of it.

It started with a donut....then in the morning I went out to breakfast....(OMG....those sausage patties were delish!)....then I went to Friendly's....well.......enough said. This morning I got up and went right back to my SP plan. Yesterday, I didn't do any cardio.........today I have 123 minutes done already. I fell off the SP bandwagon and let go of my healthy habits, but I am back on the wagon again.
I hope I have that out of my system, now.
Banning from my diet.
