My quest at finally shedding 100 pounds or more. Good days or bad, weight up or down, exercised or not, I want to blog about it to for the next 12-20 months. Why the next 20 months. I figure if I lose 5 pounds a month, it will take me 20 months. I'm hoping by doing this, not only will it hold me more accountable, but will help me figure out what triggers my downfalls.

The month of August has been my worst month yet. I exercised like crazy, but also ate to many things I shouldn't have. I think if it wasn't for the exercising I would have put 15 pounds on. This entire month has been loose 4 pounds, gain 4 pounds. I was hoping that I would be below the 160 mark by the time September rolled around, but because of my lack of self-control "I'm Not"!!! This is the first time I haven't hit my 5 pound a month goal!! Not only did I not hit my goal, but I gained a few ounces! To top it off it's Labor Day weekend. This is normally a weekend end of friends, family & food! We have a thing called the "Peach Festival" here in our little town. I've been going to it since 1963 and have no plans of stopping. This year I'm trying to be good. No 'elephant ears', no 'pop', no 'cinnamon sugar almonds', no 'cotton candy', no carnival fries, no nachos and so on and so forth. I will allow myself my 'Italian Sausage' with grilled onions & peppers that I get every year and I may have a peach donut, but that's it. Then on Tuesday when I get back to a normal life, I must do better with my food choices. I have found that just about the time I think I've got this eating healthy and making healthy choices thing licked, I fall off the wagon. I sure hope September is better than August was. I am really going to be ticked with my self if I don't get below that 160 mark.
