I have finally lost 100 total pounds! :)

And with that news, this will be my last post to the cyagirl blog (I've imported everything here to the new "October Sol" blog so nothing is lost. An unbelievable amount of thanks go out to you all for being my support group in this leg of the journey. It would have been a lonely road without each and every one of you. I'm certainly not at the end, there are many more goals to meet, including another 30ish pounds to shed. I'll be following along and reading your updates as usual too.

If you are here I either contacted you or you are new friends. Either way … welcome! Thank you for being part of my support group, I hope you gain something (but not weight!) from getting to know me and reading about my determined trek to a better bod.



  1. Outstanding! Congrats on the fantastic achievement. 100 lbs... wow. I'm sure you're just a completely different person than you were before. Way to take control of your life.

  2. Thanks Jack ... I'm the same person ... just a little lighter. :) Give me an email address so I can send you my new blog url ... trying to keep it more private and less spammed this time but want you guys to get in. Mine is octoberfae(at)gmail.(com)

  6. Thank you guys. I've sent you all link to my new digs so please hop over there and keep me company. :)

    Chai and Cilla also posted, but I didn't publish those two since they included their email addresses (well, I'll go ahead and publish Cilla's comment since I see that she publicizes her email address on her own blog. I didn't know if they'd want the addresses published. I emailed them the new url instead.

    If anyone else would like my new info just let me know. There is no time limit so if you find this post months from now you are still welcome to let me know you'd like the new address. I'm always notified of posts left here and don't see that ever changing.

  7. CONGRATULATIONS! You have worked so hard and have more patience than you can imagine. That's so awesome. I want to be directed to the enw blog for sure!

  8. Thanks penny. Just let me know where to send the new info ... email me at octoberfae(at)gmail.(com) or moderate your comments for a day and let me know so you can delete the post without publishing it.
