Today marks the final day of August and the end of the Healthy Loser Gal AwesomeAugust challenge!  I walked and/or worked out, went swimming, hiking, or something for 25 of the 31 days! The photo above is of me and my incredibly great trainer at the Waltham YMCA, Parker.  Please note he and I are wearing Healthy Loser Gal t-shirts! LOL He is such a good sport to wear the TRAINER one I made for him for this photo!  : )

 I feel great about getting in my August activities and am so thankful to all of you guys who joined in the fun and inspired me to keep going when the weather was sticky and hot and I felt more like laying low than going out and MOVING! :)  I lost another 9 lbs in August, I'm proud to report!

I have had an incredible month as it included starting a relationship with a wonderful, handsome, healthy, fit man named Jeff whom I've dubbed "Healthy Loser Guy".  He's an early morning exercise guy who has inspired me to roll out of my comfy bed and pull on my walking clothes and meet him at the local track!  The iPhoto is of us a week or so ago right after an early Sunday morning pre-church walk!  Life is, indeed, good!

Next up... a new challenge for September... "Septemeber Success" or #SeptSUCCESS if you're following along on Twitter.  More in a second blog post tonight! : )

Dream. Believe.  Achieve.
