I would love to join this challenge!

My goal is to lose 8 pounds by September 30th! *Crosses fingers* I have 2 birthdays this month, my daughters and my own so I'm going to have to be extra strong to resist birthday treats but I think 8 pounds GONE would beat any food birthday treat!

Tomorrow is my weigh day so I'll get a number goal and add it in tomorrow.

Thanks for this challenge, I just love these and was sad I didn't spot Augusts until it was almost over.

::Edit:: So my official goal is 8 pounds, 171.5lbs by September 30th.

Wow....miss a few days and the Sept goal thread is already on page 7!
Well, finally got internet set up at the new house (I have been going through withdrawals form 3FC, lol) so I should be able to be on here a bit more.

My goals for Sept--to get into the 250s and to fit into those smallest of small size 20 pants I have in storage and be able to wear them in public.

Well, kindof in a down mood....Besides it being TOM, I am feeling all weird and stressed with moving again, and trying to get everything arranged with my new jobs and the custody paperwork, etc. Putting DD in child care for the first time ever is also making me sad. I think the separation is really starting to hit me as now I am starting to miss the ex. Fun times, eh?

I cheated for the first time in over month....I was good at first. Moving day and no new food in the house and roommate went to go get Little Ceasars, so I decided I had been planning a cheat day forever and hadn't had one, so I ordered their smallest meal (1 slice of pizza with 4 breadsticks), which I shared with DD. Not so bad for a cheat day, right? It even would have fit in my calories for the day. Then I ate a whole bunch of chocolate toffees. Like a whole freakin small box of chocolates. Talk about jumping off the wagon. I felt like crap afterwards too and had a sugar headache. The next day I did much better, although I did allow myself to have some carrot cake and pasta salad at a potluck. I think the carrot cake pushed me over calorie wise, but not much. Oh well, back on schedule now. I guess we'll see if a cheat day will encourage more weight loss or if it will come back to bite me in the ars, lol.

I am totally joining and starting tomorrow.

My goal for Sept 30th would be 161 lbs. That's about a 9 lb loss from where I am at right now!

I also want to start excersizing. I just moved so I have tons of unpacking to do but I also want to start getting in walks now that I am back in a nice neighborhood with sidewalks and what not...should take advantage!

Here is to tomorrow....!

Hey ladies....SO much work got done here today. I had no time to post. Things are moving quickly in the sale of our house. We have to go over this weekend with a u-haul and move everything else out and into a storage unit near our land (where we're planning to build...someday!) So, I had to contact all sorts of people today to get things lined up.....lots of busy-ness plus I cleaned the house more thoroughly than I have since we moved in here. I plan to do more of that sort of cleaning Thursday. Tomorrow we're going to help my mom out before she has surgery. She wants to get her house all cleaned up, flower beds weeded, and all that kinda stuff before her surgery b/c she's supposed to keep her shoulder immobile after surgery for weeks. Anyway, super good to see urockmom and newshinyme joining in on the fall fun! Hope everyone has a great OP night!

Delphi-that has got to be my new favorite quote: "Sucks about the murder, though..."
Not to make light of it, but out of context, it just hits my dark humor bone.

and if i didn't mention it before, your pics are awesome!!!!!

Gooooooooooood Morning Beautiful People....

LE ~ Have I mentioned it's grrrrrrreat to have you back?

pucedaisy ~ I know exactly what you mean. And thanks so much for the kind words.

MsP ~ Well mom has my prayers and I hope the surgery goes well. Good luck with all that cleaning...you are one busy woman these days. You've got to be burning some major calories though.

hotsplashes
~ and I hope you feel better soon.

mizmizzy ~ aboard!

jessica ~ Yeah, a cheat day every now and again is fine in my book, so long as that day doesn't turn into another and another. Glad to see you back for September as well.

Meow Mix ~

Joci ~ You give me hope though. I'm watching you maintain and loving it. I can't wait to be where you are and setting maintenance goals.

As for me, I'm down a few pounds..finally. I think TOM is now offically gone. My hands are bit swollen this morning, but other than that, I'm golden. I have to get running as the morning will be busy, with two workouts, a shower, some wally world and the whole drag the boys out of bed and send them off to hogwarts....erm...to school.

So you ladies have a great day and don't forget to smile.

So many of the ladies (and men) at 3FC have inspired me so I am happy to inspire others. I have had a long, hard journey as others have, so we all need to continue to set goals and reach them.

Glad TOM is on his way out for you....he is lurking, although I always feel him right around the corner.

Everybody....have a great, successful day!!!

Hi ladies!

It took me all summer but I finally managed to get my weight back into the 170's. I currently sit at 171 and hope to be at 165 by the end of the month! It took a major life change, broke up with someone who was wayyy to inactive for me, and since then it has been all great!

I'm excited to be back at this and can't wait to see how the month goes. It will be amazzinnng of course!

Good for you Sometimes we need to get rid of something that we like or think is good for us in order to see that there are better things/ways out there!!!
