MADiddles… 6lbs is GREAT!! emoticon
Particularly compared to my holding steady for the month.... I just set up the November thread, as this will be my last post for October. I need to do some re-evaluation about this past month...I'm not sure what factor made it a 'no loss' month exactly. I know those happen to all of us, but I really went into the month with that feeling it was going to be a good one! Hmmmm…..

HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL!! emoticon And for those who celebrate Dia de los Muertos... may your ancestors reach out to inspire you in this Life!!

Goal - Lose 3 pounds in Oct

I didn't lose a thing this week. It must of been the 95th BD Party I attended this past week. Today I am preparing a huge salad that will last a few days and a Bolthouse smoothie as well. They will be handy and healthy when I open the fridge.

It is cool this morning in FL. I have Food Prep, Gardening, pool time on the agenda for today. I watched a Netflix movie and wogged this morning so I almost have my 10,000 steps in for today.

Wishing all a healthy week. MA

This is, above all else, a Continuing Journey....

I like to think of it as a nice wilderness trail...there are lots of ups and downs, some changes in direction...its a lot of work...but worth it however far I make it!!

(oh, and a few distractions along the way: like Halloween candy... hmmmmm)
LOL patti

I have been away from home, on the other side of the world, living with others--eating not as easy to watch, basically NO tracking, but I have increased my walking

Oct. 1--180.7
Oct. 24--180.8

So...no loss at all this month, but, frankly, I'm just happy to be holding steady, not going up.

Catduck: if your "nope" means you didn't lose this week, you don't stand alone!! Its a "nope" for me this week too..... I'm sure it has to do with:
1. the salty potato chips that used to be in a bag (ahem... I *know* better!!)
2. the salty pork roast served at our friend's home for dinner 2 days ago
3. two days of very little exercise... (for a good reason though: donated blood!)

SO I shall focus on my plan better this coming week...and at least make this a month I haven't gained!!
Hope you all enjoy a great successful week.

Slowly but surly getting my garden in. Lots of good things planted for salads and stirfrys. Lot of pool time too for strength and aerobic exercises.
I have been invited to a 95th BD party luncheon today. Now that might be tuff.

WAY to GO Francine --- that's impressive for 3 weeks! Please don't get discouraged if/when your weight loss slows down... you obviously are on the right track!!

Also kudos to Ma, Anna and Zosbos for their losses as well.
Here's wishing us all continued success for our next two weeks! emoticon

Hmmm... my midweek weights are sitting right where they were. I'm really waiting for that cycle where I *suddenly* drop a pound or two... I know it takes good decisions, perseverance and patience. I'm working on the first two....and running out of the last one. LOL

EDIT: ah yes... also the 3rd "P": PLAN! Makes those "good decisions" easier!!

Hope everyone else is doing great this week...!

Ma...I'm envious... just getting to the end of our growing season up in the NOrthwest. It was with regret that I pulled out my bean plants a day ago. I will have to pick all the tomatoes soon and bring them in to ripen. Beets, Kale and a few others are growing still though....

I've been on the attentive side this week, so making progress in the direction I want to see. So slow and inconsistent at this stage of my Journey. Have a great week everyone!! Remember: One Decision At A TIme!

Hi all
I hope everyone has a great OCTOBER.
I am in the Sunshine State, so getting into the gardening mode. I like planting veggies for salads and stirfries. I plan on spending the afternoon outside get pots ready for planting.

I spent the morning in the pool doing water aerobics for a couple hours. Enjoy your day. MA

Delighted to welcome new folks along...and continue the Journey with those of us *regulars*. We might not be where we want to be quite yet....but it always strikes me as such a good thing that at least we're "aware of and trying" to reach a healthier weight. Oh, but for the grace of God...and Spark(!)… where might I be otherwise?!

Lets get this month off to a determined start!!

You are here on the community challenges every month and I admire your determination to stick around. It gives me a place to go when I feel I have no other.
I just might join up this month for the added motivation. I just got back from a month long vacation. Diet wise it was a disaster. I so dislike when I sabotage myself. Well, it is done and now I have to undo. Need to get off the tush and head to the swimming hole for a couple hours. Have a good day. Ma
