Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to check in and say hi and tell you where I'm at!

I didn't do another round, I worked the extra gain of pounds off by getting into a religious schedule of exercising at least 4 times a week - 1 1/2 hour walk/jog (more walk than jog!) or pilates.

I watch what I eat, minimal sugar (weekends only), and all carbs are eaten before 3 o'clock. I got this advice from a Naturopath and it seems to be working. I eat low carb anyway, but make sure I have none after 3.

I am currently maintaining at 140-142 and broke the 130 barrier only once at 138.6. It seems that for me to stay in the 130's I have to work my ass off and be super-strict with my eating, and I'm simply not prepared to be that way.

I'm comfortably into a size 8, some clothes are loose and so I go to a 6. I have noticed in the past 2-3 weeks I am more toned and the size 6's are fitting better. I hope by Christmas with the constant exercise to be able to transition most clothes into 6's.

I have learned that even if the scale doesn't say the figure you want it to, you can still be in the size you were aiming for by exercise and toning. Essentially hard work and discipline with eating really are the answer - at least for me.

HCG did teach me discipline with my eating and for that I'm grateful.

I am blogging a few times a week about life, family and humor over at An Observant Mind, so I'd love to see you over there if you want to join me, and a few times a month over at Natures Conspiracy.

I will keep checking back in, and I hope everyone has a great Halloween!
