My report on my September goals goes like this:

I am down to 199.5 this morning (loss of 5.5 so far this month)
Still getting all my freggies per day --- easy peasy as I love freggies

Began working a second part-time job as a Foodie at Harmon's (local family-owned grocery) and loving it!!!

Trials and tribulations testing us this week: both of my younger siblings who are bipolar manic depressives are having episodes (sister is hospitalized and brother on the way). It's been 3 years for both of them; such a hard illness to deal with. My daughter has been told she is being replaced at her job and her husband is currently deployed -- praying that she will successfully find another position and soon. She was also diagnosed with ovarian cyst this week. God will prevail!!!!!

  Congrats on your birthday!! You can get that 1.7 down...just get back on a plan. I've found that if I know I'm going to be going to a party or dinner, I plan it out as much as I can before-hand so that mentally I'm prepared when I get there. If I overeat, then so be it....I just try to cut back in other places, or simply start again fresh. Good luck and I'll be in touch! emoticon
