Last day of September

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Well, today's the last day of September. So, I've been thinking about October--what will it hold. Tomorrow, Oct. 1st, I have my first weigh-in for the Fall 5% challenge. I'm looking forward to it--with some reserve. The past two weeks the scale has gone up and stayed there. While I haven't really stressed too much over the scale, because I know I am doing the right things, I'm still a little worried about weigh-in. Yet, I can't wait to weigh-in to see if I can do a happy dance!

I love Fall/Winter here in Florida. That's when the weather starts to cool down and you can enjoy outside activity. Now that I am getting healthier, I am hoping to be able to do some outside activities...maybe even go for a walk! I used to love walking.

With the 5% Fall Challenge now in full motion, I was thinking about my next big goal--entering Onederland! I am hoping to reach that goal by the end of this year. That means I have some where between 15-20 pounds to lose--depending on tomorrow's weigh-in. That's only 5-7 pounds a month. I think it is a reasonable goal!

Earlier I was playing with a BMI calculator. I've decided my next mini goal after that is 174. That will take me into the overweight category! Yes, I will be so excited to be overweight--not obese! I haven't set a date yet for this goal.

So there ya have it! My thoughts for this last day of September!

    I love to walk outside and as winter approaches for me I will get less of it. I don't mind the cold I just can't walk when the roads and sidewalks are covered in snow. Enjoy your season!

    Love your blogs. They are so inspirational to me. You have good goals, and I know you will succeed. I'm looking to some cooler, less humid weather here in Fl as well.

    It sounds like October will be an amazing month for you! Good luck with your weigh in. I need to weigh in tomorrow since I will be out of town on Saturday. Keep up the great work!

    I think my weigh in may be a bit of a disappointment too. But I'm not going to obsess over it. This fat has been around a long time and apparently my body is kind of attached to it. I'd love to see onderland by the new year too but I have 18 pounds to lose and I lose slOOOw. But, stranger things have happened. maybe we'll do it tigether.

    I am so looking forward to Onederland! However I am not looking forward to the cold PA winter. As you are able to begin outdoor activities, we become housebound.

You have a great plan! Good luck

    It's great to use the months to reflect on how far you've come, get new goals, and "reset your sails" to get to that new goal. I am so excited you will "soon" be in One-derland, and with me below BMI 30 in 2011!
You are A-MAZ-ING!!!
