Hello my lovelies.

I have not had internetz at my house since Monday, hence the longer than normal time lapse between posts.  Well, not surprisingly I am only down .6 (point six) this week but I really wasn't expecting much more after a 4lb loss last week.

I did purchase a new handbag (squeeeee!) and I lurve it.  I can't find a pic of it so I'll have to take one to show you guys.  It's a slightly metallic dark gray Nine West bag from Ross.  From what I understand...gray is very in this season.  I have seen a lot of gray/white/yellow combinations out there.  Me likey!

I wish I had more interesting things to report but I have just been kinda "checking in" to my days lately.  I am purging and packing for my move in November.  Stressful. This is my last full month membership to the far far away gym that I belong to.  To be honest I really haven't been much in the past few months so I don't think that I will miss it.  I have decided to give up on the yoga DVDs.  Most of the ones available on Netflix are not really conducive to actually trying to learn the poses.  I have done classes before and will have to go back to learning in a classroom setting. 

I belong to a German Sister City program in lovely Fredericksburg,VA.  It's one that just started in May and at the end of September we have about 30 German folks staying in our fair hamlet.  They will be here a week and I have no idea how I will have any time left for myself once work, packing, socializing and transporting this folks gets underway.  After they leave I have a wedding and then I am off to Colorado for a week at the end of October and then I move.  Phew!  I am exhausted just thinking about it. 

I am going to try to stay focused and inspired so that the weight continues to wave bye bye.  I have a goal.... to fit more comfortably in the airplane seat this time around.  I am even flying the same airline and type of aircraft as I did this time last year.  I hope there is a noted difference.  Colorado is my light in the murk right now.  I can't wait to breathe that amazing mountain air, hike those trails and lust after those handsome rugged outdoors men.

I really wanted to thank you all for your amazing suggestions for combating emotional eating.  It's good to know I am not alone.

Till next time!

P.s. I have some reviews coming up on several natural products and a book.  Stay tuned.

I have been to Colorado, even though I'm Irish, and it's fabulous. I wish I had that trip to look forward to myself. Just being there is bound to lose you a couple of pounds.

LOVE your blog title, been there done that! I am the same way with vacations, I need to have them planned every few months so the anticipation keeps me from jumping off the nearest building. I lived in Colorado Springs for 2 years, and have traveled all over CO-it is probably my favorite state in the country. Have a blast!!

Yes, have an awesome time in Colorado! Good on you for making the goal to fit more comfortably in the airplane seat.

In 2002 I decided to start my own weight loss journey. Instead of turning to faddy diets and impractical exercise routines, I leveraged off the mindset that had made me so successful in my professional career. Feeling empowered, I lost over half of my body weight and maintained that weight for over five years before losing even more.

Just recently I wrote to my blog about motivation to lose weight, a post that will hopefully help you (and other people) to stay focussed on your goals and continue to shed the pounds -
