Chapter 30, Day 28 Challenge complete

Saturday, December 01, 2018

Lost 6.5# over the Challenge, short of the 8.6# needed for a 5% weight loss goal. My loss looks good on paper, but the first 4 # were dropped Week 1, and 2.5# lost (and some re-gained) over the remaining weeks. So, I fiddle fooled around for most of the Challenge.

Yet, a loss is a loss and progress. And, during a holiday month.

I'll keep it going during the In-Between Challenge. It helps keep me focused on weight loss. With another holiday month afoot, it's a good strategic decision for me.

Lately, I've been browsing at Ellie Krieger cookbooks I borrowed from the library. She has a usually-sometimes-rarely approach to food; no food is off limits and with no use of artificial sweeteners. Over the next month, I'm going to adopt her approach and see where this journey takes me. And, for the first time in my life, ever, I'm going after a more balanced lifestyle. LOL, that's a goodie..... I'll soon be into my busy season with client work. If I am 1% successful, that will be progress.

New month, new opportunities, new plan in hand
Hello lovely weekend!

    Nice blog, Vicki...I've always liked the way you post your Day Positives. Helps me think positive, too. You have a great attitude, and that's half the battle. Glad we're doing the In-Between together. BTW, the Winter sign ups just began today, so get on over there asap, ok? Love, Carol

    A loss is a lose, and you did well, so don't feel bad about not making your goal. The older you get the harder it is to lose, so for that reason I never did make mine goal. But anything is better than none.
