Happy September, almost October! It’s 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. It’s 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. It’s an extra charge of energy I get in the Fall and I love it. I get more exercise, I’m happier and I just plain feel better. I’m 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 hadn’t happened, and that’s in the past. I yo-yoed between 233 and 236 for like 5 months. I’m 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 I’m going to ride this wave for as long as I can.

So, here’s 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:

    My youngest (just shy of 16) would just LOVE your nails... she changes hers up like the weather temps emoticon and always wants to do mine!

    You really inspire with your determination to move forward. So what if you didn't get to your goal by the time you wanted. You still got there and are getting healthier.

    Fall is a wonderful time of the year with cooling weather and the promise of changes.

    Congratulations on your weight loss! You can do it and you have proved it!
