So how did I do?

Not so well.
I definitely have the walking under control. I have even added a new goal, which is to average 15,000 steps a day, and I am achieving that. Actually, I think I need to shake up my exercise a little. I don't think I burn enough calories for the amount of time I spend on cardio. I used to walk up a hill near my home, but it has gotten difficult as the days grow shorter. I will probably put the goal of changing up my cardio on hold for another month. I have joined a health club, but it will not open until November 10.
I did very well with the goal of avoiding processed sugars for a week. Thanks to Naomi on the Goonies team for setting this up as a challenge. I think that helped. But I went off track, and I have had a hard time getting back on. Also, I was compensating for the lack of sugar with added peanut butter, and I think that hurt. However, today was a good day for me in that regard (no processed sugar or peanut butter). So I'll report again after this week.
As for the weight loss, I really haven't lost. I was 193.4 when I started. I was 193.0 today. I had dropped below 190 and got up to 195, so it's been all over the place. Again, today was an encouraging day.
I have not been so great with tracking food or blogging. I have very limited access during the day at work, and at night I am exhausted. I have been going against my rules with the food tracking and need to improve.
As for commenting on other blogs, I have left more words of encouragement during this time, but I think there is room for improvement.
I feel like I am rambling, and I apologize if that is the case. I'll report again next week.
