Monday, my official weekly weigh-in day when I'm trying to eat well and move more! I got back on track with my weekly weigh-ins on September 29. I am excited to report that I'm down 11.2 pounds since then, and have reached my starting weight for 2014! I was aiming for that for the end of the year so I'd have a no gain year! Now, I'm confident I'll be down a few pounds by years end. So good to be back on track!
I even lost 1.2 pounds according to my weigh-in this morning and I was in Chicago for a 4-day vacation. I did water aerobics in the hotel one night, got some walking in, and watched my portions and food choices. It worked!
I'm starting my 10-day detox plan on Wednesday. If you saw my pantry and fridge, you'd wonder where Susie moved to and ask who lives here now! Ready for a healthy lifestyle which will lead to a healthier me!

When I was a kid/teen/twenty-something, I would bake in the sun unprotected and would even use baby oil to "get a better tan". Not smart, I know. So, I decided to have a full body skin cancer check and yesterday was the day. I had 2 suspicious spots, one on each leg, that the doc removed and sent to have biopsied. Results in 2 weeks. Not worried, just feel good that I did this for myself! On the down side, no water aerobics for a week to avoid infection at the removal sites. Small price to pay.
I intended to go for another great water workout today, and even invited my niece to join me. I have 5 free passes to my gym to share with her. She's hit a plateau with her weight loss. I think a new workout regiment may help. Rather than cancel, we met at the gym anyway. We walked for 30 minutes, then she went to use the cardio machines, while I went for strength training. I haven't done much of that for a long while and WHEW! My body is certainly telling me that I should have never stopped. Wow, I think I'm gonna be sore tomorrow. I even lowered my weight amounts since I hadn't been in so long. I'm meeting my niece again on Friday and will have another go at it. Gotta get this body stronger and firmer again..........while I'm dropping the excess weight, of course.
Still working my 'no gain holiday'! Hope you've got a plan for Thanksgiving! We've got this!
