Well Its very hard to believe that it is October ! This year has really flown by for me! I started out doing well but after 2013 and only basically maintaining all year I really wanted to change some things and try to "re- charge" my diet so to speak !
We went on vacation in may and that is when I also took on another part time job. Things just went downward from there. I fell off track and spiralled out of control. It was bad.... I ate everything I had gotten away from.... ice cream blizzards, lots of fast food and I felt bad quickly.
In September I was out of town for approx 3 weeks and ate all 3 meals out except some healthy breakfasts ! My clothes became tight again and it reminded me why I am doing this ... I started having heartburn at night ... I noticed a loss of energy...

Now its October and after time,this year seems to have alluded me as well....... I have gained about 16 pds from the beginning of this year. THAT"S ENOUGH !!!! I know I must get this under control or all my work in 2012 will be erased. I do NOT want to go back to that woman. I am not getting any younger and I know some of this is to do with my hormones but I will not use that as an excuse. The WORST time of the year is coming.... halloween, thanksgiving , and Christmas. Don't get me wrong... I love the holidays .... I just mean ALL THE FOOD and EATING CONSTANTLY is this time of year.
I have about 90 or so days left to try to get back to my beginning of the year weight and I really really want to do that. I must focus focus focus !!

thanks for listening and PLease give me any suggestions that you have for upcoming seasons !!

    I was just thinking the same thing. It's October and I've gone no where with my weigh loss goals. I'm trying to go back to getting more freggies and more movement less sitting. Let's make this last 90 days count!! emoticon

    Hey girl! I feel like you do. I am GOING to get some of this weight off! One new thing that I've started doing is taking multiple mini-walks. When we were traveling a few weeks ago, I just took 5 minute walks around the RV parks we were staying in. But now that I'm back in my "usual" RV park in Kansas City, the route is about 8 minutes. I'm averaging about 4 times per day, but I WANT to up that to at least 5X. (5 circuits X 8-minutes = 40 minutes). I know that I could do 40 minutes all at once, but I think the multiple "get-up-and-go" is helping me much, much better! We Can Do This!
