The Beginning of A New Month

Once September hits its the end of summer in my book. So how have I done on the weight loss front this summer? Well this month I have a monthly loss for the first time in 5 months. I lost 3 pounds this month for a total of 214. That means that this summer, June, July, and August, I gained .5 pound. Actually, that is very good for me. As long as I've been trying to manage my weight (which is the last ten years) summer has been the hardest for me.

So now I have my first monthly loss since February and I'm going to keep the momentum going! Weight loss is much easier for me once school starts. You can see that in my sidebar on my monthly weight loss widget. Last September I took off 9 pounds with the starting of school. I really don't know why this is. It could be that during the school year I am on the road a lot taking kids to classes and such and I'm just not in the kitchen and near the food.

I still have a hope of eeking out a 20 pound loss this year. I would only have to lose 4 pounds a month to do it so it's not out of the realm of possibility. For now though I am going to bask in my monthly loss of 3 pounds and be happy.
