It is nice to have it a little earlier in the fall. Gives a little break between the end of summer and Christmas.

It was a wonderful dinner. It ended up with 9 people which included 5 - 20 year old boys all home from university. They have gone out to a local bar for pumpkin beer. The drinking age is 19 here. Because the dinner table was so active, no one noticed except my mother in law that I did not eat dessert. I did really good on the portion sizes. Only thing missing was my daughter. I had hoped to skype her in for part of the dinner. Currently, she is teaching in Egypt. This is the first family gathering that she was missing. Her internet was down, so she was not able to join us.

Well this should be my last challenging meal until my cruise Dec. 9!

I have lost 51 lbs. In the first three months before I went on the Fantasy Maiden Voyage, I lost 25 lbs. The next 25 lbs. took longer due to "cheating", but integrating my eating habits with my social habits. I am trying to lose another 20 - 24 lbs before my next cruise. It is looking more like another 20lbs. if I can pull off 2 lbs. per week.

It is very exciting to get into clothes that you have not worn for years or maybe a couple of decades. I can not believe that I have saved clothes that long. They are quite out of style now. I really need new fall/winter clothes but with the goal of another 19 lbs by Dec. 8, it is hard to buy now and then again in 8 weeks. I am struggling a bit this weekend because of being sick. My cold hit my chest on Monday. Yesterday, I did go to work and went curling last night. I am feeling better. Now to figure out how to get the gym tonight. It is Girl's Night Out. Eating should not be too bad, but I would have to leave work at 3:00 to work out, and I really can not leave until 5:00. I should have gone this morning. Well I will be back to it tomorrow with my trainer.

Hi PinkPug,

I scanned back through your previous comments. You have lost 9 lbs. in 6 weeks. That is excellent.

I believe you are on my cruise - EBPC. Do you have a goal for the cruise in just over 8 weeks?

Keep reporting in, I know you can do it!

Yesterday i went to BodyPump for the second time since the accident (car accident early September >whiplash >major backslide in weight loss).
It wasn't terrible. Although finishing upright was a major accomplishment for me this week.
Yay!
Now for a morning run to try to work out all the soreness.

I'm wanting so badly to run today, but last Monday I tore a muscle in my calf and I know it has to heal. Been biking instead and I went 7 miles one day last week -- I was very excited!

Maybe today I'll do yoga and take it easy. I'm feeling like sitting around, and I know I can't do that or I'll fall into a bad pattern again.

Way to go to everyone, though! And you two who are cruising in 8 weeks! You'd better post some pics to keep me going! I have to wait for February!

Rode my bike for 5 miles, then did a little yoga in the park. So tired now!
