So far I am doing pretty good. I am gong to do my weekly weigh in tomorrow. I was to get some different workouts from online i am excited to start trying out this week. My goal is to get everyone close to me to get a little bit more healthier. I try to be their support system. I checked my fitness tracker and realized that i average from 15 to 20 miles a week; So i set a personal goal to run 100 miles in 30 days.

Doing great. Lost 5 pounds this month so far and a total weight loss of 50 lbs. I was even able to get outside for a 3 mile walk on our local River Walk Trail this week. In Sept. I could barely make it 1/4 of the way around around the figure eight mile and a half course in 40 mins. Friday I made 2 laps around in an hour for 3 miles. My husband could not believe how much I had improved. He is such a big support and gives me lots of encouragement. I am blessed with such a wonderful support system at home and online.

How others see you isn't important, but how you see yourself is everything.

How is the month going - I have been so busy moving that time just flew - I have been doing the program for at least 4 times a week and walking for the rest. We all have busy times and maybe we have times when the diet is not going so well either - found this and thought it might help.

So I googled to see what others had to say about it. Here's a recap of tips from WebMD:

1. Imagine You: Healthy and Vibrant

Have a vision of success. According to Katherine Tallmadge, MA, RD, author of Diet Simple, the mind is a strong tool -- use it to achieve what you want.

2. Understand Your Weight Loss Personality

According to Thomas R. Przybeck, PhD, personality plays a role in our attitude towards food. As an assistant professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Przybeck recommends that you know your tendencies and tailor your plan to conquer the unproductive inclinations.

3. Record Every Food Morsel You Eat, Taste, or Lick

Underestimating just how much food you've eaten is a common mistake, one that can lead to a weight loss plateau or weight gain. Yet keeping a diary of your daily food intake (every bite, taste, or lick) can help you see where you're going wrong.

4. Beware of 'Calorie Creep'

A key reason for a weight loss plateau is eating more than you think. It's easy for portion sizes to creep up, and before you know it, you end up eating more than your plan prescribes. That's why it's important to weigh and measure your food to understand proper portions. Try cutting your daily calorie intake by 100 or 200 to move beyond the weight loss plateau.

5. Watch Restaurant Overeating

At restaurants, rich foods and supersized portions can sway even the most determined dieter. Especially if you eat out often, look at restaurant eating as a chance to practice good portion control.

6. Eat Low-Fat Protein to Manage Hunger Pangs

New findings show that a high protein diet can help squelch hunger. Protein foods work by suppressing ghrelin, a hormone secreted by the stomach that stimulates appetite (yes, it triggers hunger!).

7. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

Fill up on produce. Eating lots of low-calorie, high-volume fruits and vegetables crowds out other foods that are higher in fat and calories. Move the meat off the center of your plate and pile on the vegetables.

8. Push the Envelope Past That Plateau

Hitting the treadmill every day for a 30-minute walk or doing the neighborhood loop with your buddies gets your body into a groove. After a while, your muscles get used to the routine and become very efficient at doing the task at hand.

9. Wear a Pedometer

Wearing a pedometer each day and having a daily step goal can boost your activity level and burn more calories. Wearing a pedometer may also help decrease blood pressure.

10. Try Yoga to Avoid Stress Eating

Stress eating is bingeing on food -- homemade chocolate chip cookies, salty chips, a handful of this, a fistful of that -- to soothe your inner emotional turmoil, not your real hunger. Studies show that yoga lowers levels of stress hormones and increases insulin sensitivity -- a signal to your body to burn food as fuel rather than store it as fat.
