Happy September, almost October! Itís Fall and I can feel it. It's my absolute favorite time of year. Of the many reasons I love Fall, there is one in particular that I am really taking advantage of especially given the turmoil in my life this year. Itís that during the Fall, I become much more alert, organized and prepared. I LOVE Fall so much, that I actually get up earlier, get outside more and work harder to check things off my list so that I can go enjoy more FALL! I know this may sound nuts, but it is so true. Itís an extra charge of energy I get in the Fall and I love it. I get more exercise, Iím happier and I just plain feel better. Iím definitely a cool weather girl!
So, to start Fall off right, I have been much more focused the last few weeks and I am happy to report that this morning I stepped on the scale and I am 225. To date this is a 104 pound loss! Now, a LONG time ago I meant to be down 100 pounds, but it hadnít happened, and thatís in the past. I yo-yoed between 233 and 236 for like 5 months. Iím not going to regret that. It was a time of learning and grieving for me and I needed it. But, now I have re-focused my efforts from maintaining to loss again and its working, very well, I might add. It feels great and Iím going to ride this wave for as long as I can.
So, hereís to you and yours!!!! Have a great Fall harvest season and as I tell my kids this time of year, get outside and smell the mums! hehe
Here is my shirt and matching nails for today:
