Thank you Rie for starting this challenge. I was looking for another challenge after successfully completing the Labor Day Challenge over the summer. I really want to keep the momentum going especially since the Fall/Winter months are the hardest for me to stay on track (so much yummy comfort food as well as all the food related holidays - Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, my birthday - plus the weather gets depressing and cold which means I spend most of my time inside curled up under a blanket and not exercising/moving much). I'll be posting in the spreadsheet throughout the challenge but I'll also be updating this post with my weekly weigh-ins.

Happy Halloween everyone!! I wouldn't exactly call this challenge a bust for me because, up until last week, I had lost about 3 lbs. Not much but at least I stuck to the challenge and boy was it a challenge. Our house is on the market and for about 3 weeks in late September/early October we had showings every single evening which meant a ton of fast food for supper. Showings have died down - none in the past 2 weeks but we have a 2nd showing on Friday - one of the first people to look at it back in September - so I'm crossing my fingers that they put in an offer. Then yesterday, I had 4 of my wisdom teeth removed and have been drinking a ton of liquids, plus my mouth is swollen up like a balloon. I'm sure that is adding some extra water-weight to the scale. Plus, I ate a ton of Halloween candy this weekend since I knew I won't be able to eat much hard food for the next 3 weeks. I'll probably try to get back to counting calories next week. I would love to be in the 180's by the end of the year - Thanksgiving & Christmas are going to make that tough but I think I can do it.
