First day of Fall and goal dang near met!

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Ok – so I didn’t make my summer goal – but I only missed it by ONE POUND!!!!!! I lost 35 instead of 36 pounds since summer started. YYYYYAAAAAAHHHHHOOOOO!!!!!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

It’s also been 7 months today since I quit smoking!!!!!!!

The equinox brings autumn on September 22, 2013 at 4:44 P.M EDT. So actually it is not fall yet as of this posting.

It is the summer's great last heat,
It is the fall's first chill: They meet.
–Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt

Now it is time to make a new goal. I will post this on my page as well. My next big goal is to get to 100 pounds lost. I would like to do this by the end of the year. So this is my New Years Eve Goal. As of today I have lost 75 pounds. I need to lose 25 more to make this goal. This is less than I had to lose for my summer goal so I fully believe this is doable.

Happy Fall Ya’ll

    Girl, not only do I know you can do it, but you will do it. You have made such wonderful strides and will continue to do so. What are you doing for exercising? I have started walk away the pounds but won't be doing any today as my legs are still tired. I must have really worked them more than I thought at the Y earlier. I will also lmake a goal for the new years eve. I will make it that I will also lose 25 lbs by then. Here is to you and I will follow your lead emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon What an amazing achievement! Losing weight AND stopped smoking? Wow! I'm just so happy for you. You must feel so empowered right about now, huh? If ever you feel like you can't go on, you just think about how far you've come already and let that carry you right on down to goal!!! You can do anything you set your mind to and your achievements thus far are all the proof you'll ever need. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Kathy, You're doing so great! emoticon I think even more than weight loss you should be congratulated for quitting smoking, most people don't realize how difficult that really is. Nicotine is more addicting than heroin so to successfully quit is an accomplishment to be celebrated emoticon A lot of people (women especially) are afraid to quit because they're afraid of gaining weight. Not only did you quit but LOST an impressive amount. emoticon I have no doubt in my mind at all that you can accomplish your goal of 100 pounds lost by the end of the year . ONE HUNDRED POUNDS - WOW! Start planning your celebration now because I can feel it coming emoticon emoticon emoticon

    OH MY GOSH!!!! OH MY GOSH!!! JUST ONE POUND!!!

Young lady, you've done tremendously FANTASTIC!!!! I'm so proud of you!!! Yes, I do believe that you'll be able to make your new goal, with your hands tied behind your back. ROCK IT, YOUNG LADY!!! You even kicked that ole nicotine habit, too!!! DOUBLE YEA THERE!!!

The pictures are amazing!!! Where I live, we don't get the leaves changing with the seasons, and the beautifully painted landscape. Now if I travel about 3 - 4 hours north, yes, I can see it, but that's too far for one person to travel.

Thank you for sharing those magnificent rainbow of colors with me!!!

Be blessed,

- Nancy Jean -

    My goodness, you are doing so well! I am being slow about behaving
and you remind me to keep at it.

Leaves are getting tracked inside on our shoes in the morning dew, so no matter what the calendar says, my trees say it is autumn. The mornings are so cool now.

    YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION TO ME!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon In my book, you made your goal since that one pound could be water, etc. I KNOW you will make it because you are not only determined to do it but you have goals to accomplish. Keep up the GREAT work you are doing! emoticon

OMG! As far as I'm concerned, you met your goal!!!!! emoticon (I'll say that scales are calibrated +/- 1 lb and you did it!!!!!! emoticon emoticon I am so proud and happy and excited for you!!!! You're really an amazing and determined woman...there is no stopping you! emoticon

emoticon On the emoticon too! I'm sure that by now you can feel it in your lungs how much better it is, especially when you're exercising. (I quit smoking over 9 years ago, and I've not had the burning lung sensation during cardio for as long as I can remember.) emoticon

It's so fantastic that you've set another goal...and 25 lbs by New Years Eve is very reasonable. I'll be there every step of the way with you! emoticon emoticon

    Outstanding! emoticon

Plus, an extra emoticon and a great big emoticon on 7 months not smoking!

Doing two major life changes like that at the same time can be quite a challenge - it is a challenge that you have met and exceeded already!

Keep up the emoticon work!
