Default November weight loss 2015

November is starting all of the holiday parties, so we need all the help we can get. The weather should cool down so we can get outside and exercise! So I thought a good FQ theme for November would be pink. We need something bright as the days become darker. So I think it is the month we should try to renew our commitment to weight loss and our health We need to get ready for holiday season. We are all so used to doing for others.Remember sometimes it is ok to put yourself first. So lets see how we can play with some your choice of FQ's. Please send quality fabric that you would want to receive in return. As always if you don't have the theme, send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, then send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the running for the prize, please send your FQ to the hostess by the 15th of the month. As the winner has worked hard for her prize.

Eat healthy, exercise, make wise choices and lose weight but most of all have fun!!!

Here we go!

I am supposed to reach my goal end November. We'll see. I kind of doubt it as I have over 7 lbs to go and the last couple of months I have not lost that much in one month.

I am not sure what I am supposed to do to maintain and am worried. Is there a maintain thread? LOL

I'm in again. I'll have to be really good this month since I'll be going to a 4-day retreat and following that up with Thanksgiving dinner.

I'm in again for November. My weight has been up the past 3 months - October the absolute worst. I'd like to blame it on increase hunger since I rode 140 miles, but the truth of it is - my eating/soda drinking is out of control.

I probably wouldn't even bother except I've already sent my FQs.

Best wishes everyone.

i think I better join, too! I took my parents back to the old homestead 2 weeks ago and have been spiraling ever since. I"m very disappointed in myself. I need to get back to where I was before the holidays get here. Plus- I'm all about pink!!!

I went for a 2 mile walk this morning. Most of the area near my house is [pretty level so I don't walk or ride many hills. I have been walking a short path, then the steps that lead to an old cemetary twice then up and down a hill twice. I can walk a long distance but I am out of shape on hills. We are going out of town in the mountains for Thanksgiving. I gotta get in shape so I can go on the hikes. I haven't been able to do most of them the last couple of years because of my knee. Hopefully with the new knee I can do it. I also signed up for a spinning class that starts tomorrow. I hope I survive it.
Don't forget to PM me your loss for October. I have only heard from 2 people so far.

I survived my first spinning class. It has been a couple of years and a knee replacement since I have done spinning. I think I did pretty well. I kept up with the class. 17 miles in 50 minutes. Hopefully I will be able to get out of bed in the morning.

meanmom, no October weight loss for me. Just the opposite actually. I agree that you did pretty well in your spin class. DH & I have been riding outdoors in this gorgeous weather, between the rains.

I know it is only the 2nd day of the month, but I've been on course so far. Trying not to let my hunger from riding get out of control. That hasn't been easy.
