Thumbs up I'm In The '80's

I weighed in this morning and I am IN THE 80's!

I am at 189.0....without a lean to one side of the scale ~ straight up and down! Oh yeah!

And I still have one more day of September. So from July 23rd until today I have lost 12 pounds by eating better choices ~ stepping away from the dinner table when I have really had "enough" ~ worked my butt off on the treadmill and lowered my beer intake (OK ~ so I could do better on that one at least it is mostly light beer now )

With Labor Day week-end and BBQ's here it could be tough for me...I will just have to ~

Make better choices!

HAVE A GREAT LABOR DAY WEEK-END FOLKS!

Congratulations Gary!! Don't you love the 80s. Now I'm ready to pass through the 80s and downward, but you'll be at goal long before I will.

I don't know about that TAMMY! My first goal is 185...but from the looks of my stomach at 189...I think I UNDER-estimated

Well ALLISON...in case NOBODY told you....women have ALL the POWER! Angie used to be able to get me to do ANYTHING! Pretty much still does....but I put up a fight sometimes now....she doesn't have that POWER like before.....refer to my pre-menopause thread

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! 3FC HELPS YOU TO BE MOTIVATED AND HONEST WITH YOURSELF ~ IT JUST COULD BE THE GREAT COMPANY WE KEEP!!

WOW 12lbs in a little over a month!?!?! Thats awesome!!
I've been gaining and losing the same 2lbs for over a month now. I'm going to take a page out of your book... Better choices and STEP AWAY FROM THE TABLE! I'm tired of giving the scale the ol' one finger salute every morning! lol

ERICAH ~Seriously, I eliminated all junk out of my diet, I eat fruits and veggies for my snacks instead of chips and I leave the table when I am full...most of the time

I am getting in almost an hour of treadmill work each day or more and it helps that I have a job in construction and can push myself to use up some calories if I want to.

But doing all this makes me hungry too....focus dear! JUST ONE POUND AT A TIME IS EASY!!...more can be hard...start with EASY!! Good luck to you!
