Thumbs up Sunday - Set clocks back. New moon with partial eclipse.

Diet Coaches/Buddies Exercise was walking, CREDIT moi, to a Dia De los Muertos party for much fun but, unfortunately, more food than I planned - Ouch. I did limit myself in a situation where multiple refills of tiny plates was the norm as well as multiple trips to flowing bars. I did discard part of a HUGE roll that seemed to be part of the celebration.

I'm typing fast because I still want to get out and see if the rumors about my moonbeam are true. As Joy (gardenerjoy) mentioned, she is predicted to present herself, Full Monty, to the sun this morning! She says it's only a 'partial' eclipse, but that's as satisfying as hearing that they 'only' went to second base. Sounds a bit Miley Cyrus to me. Fortunately I'm over it and am only looking because I'm curious.

Joy (gardenerjoy) Great to be reminded that it's possible, "Nothing else went according to plan, but the food did!"

CeeJay - So encouraging to read, "Feeling committed and strong!" Kudos for all those days in a row.

maryann - Glad your back is healing. DW just bought a persimmon that I'm staring at warily because the last one we had puckered me beyond endurance. Kudos for avoiding a big meal to celebrate weight loss.

nationalparker A "few hundred pavers" is Kudos worthy exercise. LOL at the old story of painting yourself in.

sparks17 This "lost and gained the same ..." seems to be common among those of us wrestling this weight thing. Kudos for designing your own "Intermittent Fasting lite" for your eating plan.

Helpful Response: Wait, that may be true, but it's even more important to me to lose weight. I can't have it both ways. I can't resist making changes and lose weight. I'll go read my Advantages Response Card right now.
