<3 MAKING A MORE FABULOUS ME - SEPTEMBER EDITION <3

Ready for a new month?

Name a weight loss goal and a reward.

How about mention 2 more goals?

What's your favorite meal at the moment?

Having a rough time staying on plan? Is there a way we can help?


I'll be around more.

Hey Karen!

I started on this thread like back in July or August, can't remember but I am back to posting. I have a journal and I post on another challenge thread for Christmas. TOM makes me really anti-social and I don't mean to be, it just happens. I would like to continue posting here and getting to know you all again. At the moment I just lost some weight so I am working on maintenace for a bit like till next month and then I will get to working on losing some more. Phases work for me so that is what I will continue to do. I work out 3 days a week right now and walk the other days so I really don't have an exercise goal. I guess one goal for me is to get in more H20 and my favorite food(beverage) is coffee with lots of cream.

Have a Happy Labor Day!

My goal is to lose at least 5 pound and cut into the next bracket.

Other goals: exercise at least 3x a week

listen to motivational things that are on my ipod


There are 17 weeks left of the year. Since New year's eve fall on a Monday, 16 more mondays to go. Let's try to not let it be 17 times of starting over.

I feel very motivated.

Glad to hear that you feel motivated Karen, we all need motivation to keep working on our goals. I like your idea of listening to motivational things, I enjoy watching motivational stories about how people lose the weight once and for all. Zumba class today and then a 3 mile walk will get me going today. Have a fantastic Tuesday everyone, we can do this!!!!

Hi girls.
I apologize for being MIA. I am still struggling with vertigo almost daily. I have went through two rounds of antibiotics as the Dr. indicated I have ear infections in both ears. So far, no luck. I go to an ENT on the 14th where I hope to get a better understanding and treatment plan. Don't give up on me--I will be back.

Hey, my babes! Sooooo sorry that I have been MIA this week! I'm trying to learn a new computer program for the company billing this week and it has been eating into my chat time!

I am still on BFL....Hopefully I will have a loss this week! Kathe gained 2 lbs last week, but we're thinking it's muscle gain because she has been sticking with the work-out plan to-the-letter, if anything she is not eating enough because we are still trying to tweak the menus!

My weigh loss goal for this month is 8 lbs.

Maggie!

Anna!!!!
I've missed you! Hope you feel better soon! My mom used to suffer with vertigo really badly! She had to take fluid pills to keep the fluid out of her ear drums. I had a bout of it a couple of weeks ago - I think it was my sinuses & ears....bad stuff! It literally makes me so nauseous I have to lay down!

Karen - I feel the same way! Sooooo motivated! I think I may actually do it this time!

Kimmmmmmmer - Get those boxes unpacked and get back in here!

Hi Ladies sorry I've been MIA most of the week too, I've been swamped doing interviews but that's all said and done now.

Great job on another loss this week Karen how motivating!!!

Last week's Weight: 191.4
Current Weight:190.2
Total Loss: -1.2

One of my goals for September is to say no more often to the office lunch invites, that is SO difficult

Good to hear from you Anna, hoping you are feeling more like yourself soon

Heidi - That resort looks wonderful. Oh, and why did I think you lived in Norfolk?

Kimmer - glad to hear that move is behind you

Maggie - you go girl

Popping in here real quick. On my way to chaperon a party, work the door and water bar.

WTG Vik !

Heidi - that resort is so pretty. Have fun at the wedding and have a good weekend.

Any good weekend activities planned?

Me:
Tonight - there's this party
Tomorrow - haircut, Tattoo Convention, Go see a play
Sunday - celebrating my dad's birthday - not sure if it's a BBQ or not. I'll exercise this day.


Weekend goals:

STAY ON PLAN
DRINK LOTS OF WATER
Get a good night's sleep (from Sat to Sun, I guess)


Can't think of anything else for now, but if I do, I'll post it in my journal since I haven't been there for a few days.

Before we moved here, we lived in Hampton which is only a stones-throw away from Norfolk....and since I don't really live in a shopping metropolis and Norfolk is only 70-miles way, I still do most of my shopping in the Norfolk/Chesapeake area.

The wedding was beautiful and the hotel was awesome! We always have so much fun when we get together with that side of Louis's family! They are a blast!

I would really like to go back there with Louis for a long week-end without all of the hustle-and-bustle of a wedding!

Yesterday, I was having one of those days.

It seems that today, bosslady is out of the office until after 3:00pm so I can sneak in here once in a while.

How is everyone doing?

Tomorrow is weigh in day. I've been on plan, but have TOM so who knows how the scale will treat me.

Not doing too great with the exercise, but eating has been going well.

Made Whitecastle Cheeseburger pie, chicken alfredo, clouds, cream cheese muffins, will make zoodles, chicken patties, pancakes. etc to stay on plan.

Is anyone making anything good?


Hope everyone is doing well.

I'm so stressed out by life and work right now. I didn't need to see that there was no change on the scale. I guess I'll have to work harder from now on if I want to achieve my goals.

yay, Heidi!!!


I seem to be stuck at 163. Going to exercise on the weekend and eat cleaner to see if I can break it.

So far, I have no plans besides organizing drawers, documents, etc this weekend. How fun.

Anyone have any fun plans?

Happy Monday! Boy, is that a contradiction in terms or what???

How was everybody's week-end? Mine - bleh....nothing to write home about! My sinuses have been giving me a fit every since Friday, but its better today. I would really like to be at home, curled up on the sofa.

Karen are you still doing Slim in 6? How is it going?

Has anybody heard from Dani or Anna???

Heidi - I've been lazy, lazy and even lazier. I have to get up even earlier now due to traffic and it has KILLED my energy.

I'm going to hold off on Slim in 6 until I can get some walking in 3x a week. Once it becomes a routine, I'm going to try it again.

This weekend, I cooked a bit and mostly tried to rest up. The weekend before and the week at work totally drained me. I hadn't felt like that in a long, long time.

Total Loss: -1.0

I'll be traveling quite a bit for work this week but will sneak in when I can

Way to go on the losses
