Good morning girls--Happy Halloween!!

It was a long long day yesterday! I was beat last nite and know Mom was too! I went to bed by 9:30--unheard of for me! I even fixed fajitas for dinner though-I so wished I had something ready but didn't have any left overs--the bad thing---I regained my 3 lbs somewhere--I ate lunch at Pizza hut --I always gain after eating there for some reason? too much salt yesterday and I am swollen in my legs today! even tho I was good? so I am leaving this challenge at:

176.5
165


that is 11.5 pounds and I will be happy with any pounds lost and remain focused on the new challenge...I have no clue if I did the bold thingy right-I forget if I don't use it! duh!

From Naperville, IL (chicago)

Would like to be at 210 by Halloween!!!
Well I didn't hit goal but close...today I am 212.3!! 15 lbs! Not too bad. Today will be a true test. As I am sitting here next to a bowl full of candy (smells so good) I read the label and the carbs are crazy!! Not worth it.

I hope everyone did great and looking forward to the next challenge. I hope I can swing by more as I think things are settling down a bit more.

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!

DD going out with friends trick or treating and they better not get up to any tricks. That age where just a little freedom and someone in the group gets a dumb idea. But then we are picking them up from the friends and they are coming back here.

My goal was 20 lbs and I hit 29 lbs lost. If it wasnt the height of tom today I was hoping for that 1 more. But am totally pleased with my last 3 months progress.

If ya all set up a new challenge will you put a link to it in here with the new name so I can haunt ya easier!

I think we all did fabulous cause we are still here and trying, I think the key is never giving up. Whats that saying if you fall 100 times, how many times do you get up? ....101 times.

chigirl and Michellehu--you guys did great-I am wowed by the weight you lost--fabulous-Monica and Michelle always put a link to the next challenge-they are so good!! and yes-we all did great-even staying the same weight is a great way to end the challenge--I have done that also and maintaining is a win!!!

Raining here today-I had planned on staying in jammies all morning but that didn't happen--I got an early call to take the grandson to school-so I am dressed and working on paperwork-yuk-it gets ahead of me way to easy! what doesn't get ahead of me-too dark to clean-at least that is my reasoning-I have an excuse for everything I think!

check in tomorrow for final weigh in huh-I thought it was bad enough today lol!

now that Halloween is almost over-I am thinking about Christmas music!!! maybe later this afternoon-I really wanted that Bose system on QVC the other day-I really thought with my hearing aides it would help-anybody have one? maybe Santa would bring me one if I asked nicely!

Happy Halloween ladies

Well Halloween played a trick on me and the weigh scale today and added almost 3 lbs.

Oh well I finish this challenge at 176lbs. Not my goal but still a 16 lb loss and I will not loomk at that as a failure. Now it is time to keep the head held high and move on to the next challenge.

I'm so glad so many people stayed in this last challenge an I hope to see you all in the new one. I will try to set it up right after this post.
