October 1st Weigh-In - What a Beauitful Fall Day!

Dateline Orlando, FL, October 1, 2011

The air is cool and crisp. The sun is bright and beautiful. I weighed in at 168 lbs. That is a six pounds loss this month. 

What did I do differently this month? Three things: I returned to weighing daily instead of once a month. I added more weight bearing exercises to my week and in my food I cut one of the eggs from my breakfast omelet, increased my healthy fat intake: nuts, avocado, and Evoo. 

October is my favorite month of the year. Fall baby that I am, I love the season of colored leaves, crisp nights and Halloween. This month my goal is to lose three pounds for the month. If I can lose thee pounds it will be a nice benefit of my healthy behaviors. If I have the healthy behaviors without losing the pounds it will still be a great month because it is October!

Lets see how this month goes.

I weigh nearly daily, but I've let calories add up and didn't lose in September...I plan to see a loss in October. For me, a 6 lb loss for one month would be great, as it gets harder and harder to make that.

Good for you. Eye on the numbers, discipline with the meals.

On to another month of making improvements!

That's great!! I like how you explained the changes you made for the month. It really shows that small tweaks can make a big difference. It is time for me to make small tweaks!!!

Wow. That is really phenomenal. Your body likes a shakeup. I like the added healthy oils, it does help you process your foods nutrients better. So you not only lost weight, but probably had better nutrition.

My hubby is also a Fall baby. I heart October and adore me some Libras. I must because I surround myself with them. My sister also a fall baby - Scorpio. I think I remember you saying you are Scorpio. Maybe I am imagining that.

Great day!! You had such a great month, and I admire your smart way to drop a few pounds that bother you!

I completely changed the way I eat and was happy to lose another pound! This month's goal is to really increase exercise, starting with Zoomba this morning. Have a feeling I'm gonna be sore!

Hmmm. Daily weighing. I have only hopped on the scale once a month. Wonder if more frequent checking could help me change up & know if something is not working!

Thanks, Jane!
