    So...... how’s everyone doing this month?
    Are you all happy with your progress?

    I’m super proud of you all :)


    Is everyone looking forward to Halloween? Or dreading it?

    I personally was dreading it, I have a major sweet tooth!! but then I got to thinking.. my son doesnt.. he’s 4, and prefers fruit over sweets anyday! So I decided to take him to a Halloween party (for children) at one of the local pubs (family friendly pub btw lol) instead of trick or treating this year.
    Mostly because he doesn’t eat enough sweets to get through the amount he gets, so I end up eating them too :o
    My family are putting together some little goody bags for him though, so he won’t be going without his Halloween supply lol.

    Anyone else with small children and not sure how to avoid the sugar craze?

    Or does sweet treats simply not bother you?

    Share some ideas and stories, you never know who they could be helping out :) xx

    My kids are so excited for Halloween!! If you don’t want the candy in the house there is a thing called a “Switch Witch” look it up online. She takes the candy and leaves one special toy in place.

    What I do is everything in moderation, so I make sure that I log whatever I eat. Even if I go over on my calories.

    Female, age 59, 5'3" (probably only 5'2" by now)
    Starting weight was October 28, 2018 - 191
    Long term goal 112-115
    October 28.2019 goal - 151

    1st day back to my scale. I don't know what my starting point was for the month, I will use the 7th.

    October 07 - 156.7 - Hard to believe that I actually lost weight on my vacation to Dallas, what with Texas bbq, Taquieras, Margaritas etc. Mind you, I ice skated almost every day. Very pleased.
    October 08 - 160.3 - That gain in one days seems kind of crazy since I had good workouts and was well within my eating levels. Perhaps I had been dehydrated from the flights and am hydrated again.
    October 09 - 159.3
    October 10 - 159.9
    October 11 - 159.6
    October 12 - 158.0
    October 13 - 158.1 - Thanksgiving dinner tonight, but going to eat very light beforehand to save up calories for stuffing and gravy etc.
    October 14 - 159.8 - This could go up a little more still as all of that fabulous food and drink settles in.
    October 15 - 159.5 - Half a month yet, Thanksgiving leftovers mostly finished. Time to lose some weight : - )
    October 16 - 158.7 - just 2 pounds up from October 7th now.

    @amya71006 Thank you! It definitely helps to keep my focus on how far I have come since 2017.

    We are starting to get back into our 6am workouts so getting up at 5am has been difficult as well as going to sleep between 8pm to 10pm. When we were steadily into our workouts, I would have the occasional day of waking up at 4am or 5am and not being able to go back to sleep so I can relate to the sleep struggles. I'm hoping it doesn't happen this time around. I may have to start taking sleeping pills.

    The good thing is that once you are no longer sick, you can get your active vibe back too. Try not to stress too much about it - we have all been there. Keep up the great work too! :)
