Default Featherweights Plan and Chat -- October !!

Good morning!

OK here's my assessment for the last three weeks. I'm averaging between 1300 and 1400 cals. I've gone well over my exercise ticker and ... and ... I've lost 7.4 pounds!!

Have a good October everyone!

Hello all, I'm just going to jump in here. Congrats Susan on your loss. Right now, I can't find much time for exercise. I get up at 5:45 to get my oldest on her school bus, then I get my toddler ready for daycare, then we leave. I also work at the daycare, so I have a fairly active job, working with four year olds. After work, I pick up the girls and head home with hubby. Cook dinner, spend time with the girls. Put them to bed, pass out an hour later and start it all again the next day. So, I am starting off slow and maybe I can squeeze in some exercise when I am on a better track. I am going to make myself some small goals, this seems to work for me.

For the next two weeks.

I will drink 4 glasses of water a day.
I will stop eating after dinner.
I will cut my portions by 25%.
I will seriously think before shoving food in my gullet due to habit and boredom.
I will be accountable and check in here daily.

I think I can handle this. Thanks for having me guys!
Dana

Hi Featherweights! My plan in October is to run outside more to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather.

Hey Everyone. I'm working to lose 10lbs this month. I've joined the October Weight loss and Exercise challenges to help motivate me. I have worked out every day this week so far, although last night I got 10 minutes in and quit - but then rethought that decision and got back to it for another 20 minutes. Part of my exercise goals is to start the C25K and so I plan to do that today while my kiddo is taking her nap (and daddy is here to watch her).

Congrats Susan on your loss for September - I saw your post on the September board. Way to Go!

I hope everyone has a great day and an awesome October!
~Amy

Robsia, you asked what size I am. It varies from shop to shop. Dresses usually a 10, jeans a 10 or 12.

Happy October! It's a beautiful month in MI when it's not raining, so I'm going to get started with a little walking/running, and get back into the pool at least twice a week.

I'm in a Halloween challenge with my 40+ chickies, and I intend to hit the end of my ticker by then. I promised myself an iPod Touch at 150.0 and my DS10 is cheering me along (he wants to play with it, of course). Not sure about what to do after 150 - there's still going to be fat to remove and muscle to build. Maybe move to an inch-reduction mode ...

I think I'm catching that bug from Meg. A whole new month!

I'm pumped. This is going very well.

Measuring ... hmmm ... I have that recorded somewhere. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow after work.

Today wasn't as good calorie wise but I was just so ravenous all day, I think it's because yesterday was leg day and I worked them pretty hard so I was needing extra food... It was all clean food but 1800 cals of it

wow Susan!

I am still walking, I take the dogs everyday, and am moving at a fast clip. Today I ran all over the park with them felt good.

I am eating well but seem to be losing a bit of weight, my body does this as the weather cools. I am now 128lbs and holding.

Funny that all my weight is centered in my mid section so when a pound comes off it makes a big difference in my jeans, they get looser.

Here's to a nice fall so we can be outside running and walking

Good morning!

I'm starting to see changes in my clothing too. Not enough to buy new things, just enough to feel that my stuff is getting big.
