This morning the scale said 238 - 2 lbs lost... not as nice as what I saw yesterday, but I think this is real loss, so I am still happy about it!!
Looking forward to a great weekend - hope you all have one too!!!

1. To weigh 230 by Oct. 3
Weighed in at 236 this morning but I think I was completely dehydrated , so I am not confident that I have real weight loss here (I didn't update my tracker for this reason...)
2. To walk at least 6 miles outside each week, and at least 9 with the WATP videos, for at least 15 miles total each week.
Walked 7 miles outside and 10 with the WATP videos for a total of 17
3. To do at least 10 minutes of cardio and 10 minutes of body-weight exercises before my first cup of coffee at least 4 days/week.
Got in 3/4 again this week (there is no reason I can't meet this goal, I just didn't!)
4. 100% attendance to Sparkpeople for the month of September.
Earn at least 2500 SparkPoints for the month. Currently have 1484 for the month of Sept.
5. Track my food eaten daily,
and stay within the recommended ranges for total calories, carbs, fat, protein, all nutrients.
Over on total calaries 3 days, average is still in range
over on fat 1 day, under on protein 1 day, under on carbs 1 day, over on sodium 3 day (average over for the week)
6. Progress report in my blog every Friday.
Again, not a terrible week, but still room for improvement.
One pattern that I have noticed is that even though I do pretty well Mon - Fri, on Sat. & Sun. I have a tendency to over indulge. Makes sense since the food is more readily available when I am not at work, but I need to make some effort to both eat better and less on the weekends.
Tonight, I will not stay up too late. Tomorrow I will wake up on time and exercise. On both Saturday and Sunday, I will find active pass-times that keep me away from the fridge

One of the conference tables in our office has some strange chairs. The legs extend straight up above the seat and then turn outward for a few inches and then make another turn to form the arms of the chair. The result is that there is plenty of room in the chairs for big hips, but not for big thighs. Normally when I sit in these chairs, I need to sit all the way back so that my legs can fit snugly (not comfortably!). I am short, so sitting all the way back leaves just my toes touching the floor and the overall experience is just rather unpleasant the whole meeting long. Needless to say, I rarely schedule meetings for that conference room!
Today I had to attend a meeting at this conference table, and about 10 minutes into the meeting I noticed that I was sitting comfortably. My back was away from the back of the chair and my feet were flat on the floor. I actually looked to see if someone had changed out the chairs, but they were the same old chairs!!
I have not been measuring my legs, but between the two they have lost enough inches that I can slide forward in the chair and sit comfortably!! A very happy discovery for me, and one that leaves me feeling better about the slow, creeping movement on the scale!!
