I'm in. I will probably be a little short of my 2# September goal, so I will try 2# again in October. I get one more day in October than in Septemebr, so maybe that will help!

Start 9/30 =
October 3 =
10/10 =
10/17 =
10/24 =
10/31 =

Like Imabehot says, "I am so in."

I was purt smug about easily making and exceeding my sept goal of 6 lbs, but it is beginning to look like maybe, there might be a slight chance, that perhaps I will not get another 4 lbs off in the next two days.....

So, my goal will be six lbs plus my deficit from Sept, if there is one.
And in addition, I am going to not eat anymore late night snacks, which I made first months goal and stuck with real good.... easy even. Then.... I let it back

In addition again, I see that my estimations of calories consumed was off (it has to be if I still have the weight and ate (or thought I did) the amount leaving the deficit which would have yielded me a net loss of 7 1/2 lbs and still have 3 or 4 of them (hanging around my belly at that) so, I am going to copy Joy and post my calories consumed daily. Plus I am going to use a more accurate system of figuring the calories this time, such as adding up calories of all ingredients used in cooking then making sure the amount I eat per serving calculates in accurately being as I very often cook up dishes which last me several days. I love hot spicy Mexican or Cajun tasting dishes and have several methods of cooking it, such as some pasta or brown rice and adding the sauce like mixture to it for variety, and sometimes a meat in it.

Sheesh. I need to learn how to make things short, maybe I better go back to posting on my hard to type on droid.

Anyway, six lbs plus Sept's deficit which I will post in a few days, plus no late night snacking and post my daily more accurate calories.

BTW, I am proud of the determination I see here from you wonderful ladies, keep it up

B F R

PS, I got my new puter built

BFR - I agree with kelijpa...love reading your posts.

kelijpa - unless I have a sudden horrifying amputation today, there's no way I am even close to meeting goal. #%$^&*! And it's my own stupid fault.

My big goals for October are to track my WW points daily and come to this thread at least during the week to keep myself accountable. I haven't been checking in like I should because I am too embarrassed and ashamed to admit that I have done absolutely nothing in the past few months to rectify my gain. Somebody please send me some big kicks in the butt, cause I need them. Maybe even a smack upside the head, occasionally.

Will post start weight tomorrow. That's going to suck!
