Happy Election Day, Fellow Dieters!
I'm going to try to get in a little exercise (walk) after I vote. It is a cool, crisp day today. It would be a shame to waste all that sunshine, cool air, and pretty foliage - so off to the park I'll go, afterwards, for a quick 1-mile lap.
Congratulations to Jo (blog: Weight On Me at 50+), who has dropped into NORMAL weight range! Maybe I'll be able to join her there next year. I'm sure going to give it a try. Be sure to stop by and wish her congratulations! Jo has revised her goal somewhat, and will continue her journey a little while longer, before entering the golden maintenance mode.
This is the 9th day of the DDDY Challenge. Allan (blog: Almost Gastric Bypass) alluded to two additional follow-up challenges, so for anyone who missed out on this one (which ends Sunday night), be sure to sign up for the next! Allan will be signing up participants later this week/end. I am looking forward to seeing what he has up his sleeve for this next challenge, because it will take us to Thanksgiving. The timing (for me) is perfect. Thanksgiving is the holiday I am most likely to deviate from my plan, so I'm going to work hard to NOT let that happen!
In years (diets) past, it was Thanksgiving that usually derailed me, and then I'd think "oh well" and pretty much take a "food vacation" (as Clyde* put it) through the end of the year. And I remember really packing on the pounds in November and December - undoing a LOT of the hard, well-earned progress I had made. I am NOT going to let that happen this time. My mindset is different going into this, but I'm still weary enough to seek out methods to help me help myself. This is why I plan to sign up for Allan's next challenge, the follow up to the Double Dog Dare You (DDDY) challenge.
Hey, in other words, I'm not going to let the Turkeys get me down! LOL Gobble, gobble is something a turkey says, and should not be something I do.
