Amazing what a difference a week makes!
Check out last week's view.

Only 1 out of 7 stars, but I consciously was taking it easy this week.  I still managed to show a slight loss.

It will be interesting to see if this week decrease in activity shows up on next week's weigh in. According to The Whoosh Effect, it might take that long to show accurate results.  I plan to get back on track this week with my exercise.

I hope you all are having a great day. Do you have a plan for Thanksgiving day yet? Even if you plan to go hog wild, that's a plan! My plan is to enjoy the day, enjoy my company and enjoy our meal. Special treats included.  But I will not go over board! None of that too stuffed to walk stuff.

The Whoosh Effect

Currently loving and getting motivated by this article: The Whoosh Effect.

Very interesting article about fat burning, plateaus, water retention and what we can do to get the scale moving again.

October weight

Let's look at my October weight tracker.

I started the month at 174.4
And weighed in today at 172.8
That's a total loss of 1.6 this month.

As you can see though, my weight goes up and down daily.  Never too far out of range, but still up and down.

My highest weight this month was 174.6.
My lowest was 172.6.
My 31 day average was 173.3

So over all I'm trending down. But it is really slow. I am currently working on making some changes to my plan. I'll also be changing my tracker in December.  I'm hoping that by making these changes now,  I'll be going into the new year on a solid foundation with good momentum. I have 38 pounds to my goal and I'd love to get there in 2019!
