I've enjoyed participating in the October Challenge and am looking forward to the next one. I've just been lurking and sending my updates to Samantha and haven't been involved in posting, so I just want to say what a great support you all have been over the past few weeks. I began the challenge at 162 (when I started on my own I was at 165) and I am now down to 145. I have a way to go but I already feel so much better, physically but even more so mentally. Thank you, thank you for sharing the ups and downs over the past few weeks. I will try to post next time, hoping I can help someone else stay motivated (and when that lapses, help them to see it's not the end of the effort but just a new start again.)
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
You are doing really well! I remember a BIG difference in the way I felt between 155 and 135, so I can totally understand the big changes you are seeing and feeling!
We would love to have your wisdom and insight for the holiday chat and the next BL challenge! Stay in touch!
Enjoy your T.giving and safe travels to you my friend! I know that there have been some reports of big snow storms in the NW. Your dinner at the Space Needle sounds AWESOME! A visit there is definitely on my bucket list!Aww, Pamela, I remember when your poor DH was injured. I'm so glad that he is fully recovered and that you got to experience some real WISH magic during that stressful time. Thanks for being our Christmas elf and hostessing the holiday chat.
It was a really dark time for me, when DH was hurt. There was about 24+ hours when I didn't even know if he could be the same person every again, when they were concerned about bleeding in the brain, etc. But with prayers and modern medicine, he is better than ever! And being able to come here and "visit" with my friends really kept me going!!
It was a disappointment being swept and losing my bid for the Coast to Coast medal this year. I've finished four half marathons so I know I can do it. It's just getting this Western girl to finish one at WDW in the heat and humidity that is the challenge this time. That is one of the things I've learned from WISH -- never give up!
And I KNOW you won't give up. Fingers crossed that you can attempt another C2C in the near future!!
We are driving to Seattle for Thanksgiving. It is about a 6 hour drive. We drive over the Cascade mountains but it warmer and rainy so we shouldn't have any problems. We will have Thanksgiving with my Mom and dinner Friday night in the revolving restaurant at the Space Needle.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and don't forget to stick around for the results! Who will be the Biggest Loser of the Fall Challenge???
Time to get off my butt and get something done today! I've been on the computer reading and scanning scrapping websites and blogs and such all morning! I need to get productive with my day! TTYL................P
