Wow, where did October go? It was such a busy month for us. We harvested the soybeans and just finished the corn. We had two birthdays, had a few days off of school, did lots and lots of cooking and went out for Halloween. But, the most important thing about October is I got back on the wagon.

I started the Mayo Clinic diet. It is a really straight forward plan and all pretty common sense but layed out in a way that works for me. I haven't counted a calorie or measured any portions and I've lost 13 pounds in a week and a half. The biggest challenge has been giving up sugar, real and the fake stuff. After the first two weeks are up I move into a different stage where I learn how much of each food group I need each day and how to figure it out without a food scale. Yippee! This isn't a harsh diet that I will have to figure out how to live normally when I'm done, to me it feels like a plan that I can live with. And I'm excited about it emoticon

    Great job, Jodie! We finished combining yesterday before noon. Whew! I'll have to email you questions on this Mayo Clinic diet. 13 lbs in 2 wks! Wow! I lost over 2 lb this week, but hadn't changed my ticker up, so SP said I lost 1 :) That's ok, it's still a loss!

    Have a great day and a great November!
