I'm down 1 lb this week. Awesome! Even better than that, I am now at a healthy BMI. I'm never going back to overweight. Woohoo! But, I do want to lose a bit more. I'm glad I managed to lose weight even with labor day weekend this week and the barbecues that went with it. I'm getting better at eating healthy foods at events like that, and allowing myself to really enjoy a reasonable amount of junk food (without going over my calorie limit). This week was definitely a success!

I got plenty of exercise this week too. Two tennis matches, two ballet classes, two days of lifting, and 1 swim. Just 11.4 lbs down, and I'm already feeling better, faster, and stronger. It's fantastic. I do need to kick up my swimming a bit. September's goal is to swim at least 10 miles. So, I need to swim more often or make my weekly swim longer (~3 miles). I'm off to the pool now. I'm planning a 2 mile swim, so I'm getting closer to my 10 mile goal.

Happy Saturday Everyone! Enjoy the weekend!

Are you meeting your September goals? Do you need to make any adjustments so you can reach them?


  1. Great work! =) Once you change your eating habits and you see results it gets easier going to places where there will be lots of food!

  2. Congrats on getting to a healthy BMI and eating right at those bar-b-ques! I wish I had a pool at my disposal so I could swim. I absolutely love it (definitely a water baby), but the gym I have doesn't include the pool. They were actually going to tear it down, but I think they're going to keep it. I should check in to see how much it costs to join...

  3. I feel pretty confident that I will meet my September goals. I'll find out the first Wednesday of October:) Congratulations on your success!

  4. Sounds like a good week. Congrats on the weight loss! You are doing great. Finding that balance in healthy living is so important so that you don't feel deprived or overwhelmed, so good job!

  5. That's fantastic! I'm so envious. Good for you!
