    100% not going to be able to get down to 224 by the end of October... but at least it's gone down some... I hope I can reach 229 at least, but probably not.

    I say post anyway. I hate when I have to post little or no progress, but it motivates me during the week, so... 🤷‍♀️ Hugs🤗

    Thanks. I tend to just get disappointed in myself easily. Even when I am doing well, I feel like I could be doing better.

    MFP starting weight: 195 (May 2019)

    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴✴
    Challenge Goal weight: 164

    I started this adventure back in May as I was at my heaviest. I wasn' feeling good and my confidence was in the toilet. I was to get married in July and to be honest I didn't want to look back at photos from my wedding day and be completely unhappy with how I looked. I am a full time EMT so unfortunately I have a pretty inactive job. I used to work out a lot but right now I am finding that eating an very low calorie/low carb diet is working for me. When I start to work out I feel like I have to double my intake and I usually end up plateauing instead. I'm currently focused on weight loss. I will focus on toning later.

    August 8th: 184.6
    August 13th: 182.8 I'm not doing much to really lose weight at this point.
    August 31st: 181
    I did't track much this month. I was having a really hard time getting in the swing of things.

    Total Loss for August……………… -3.6lbs.

    September 4th: 181 Still not doing much, I keep saying tomorrow but my will power to walk away from the junk food in the EMS rooms has not been there.
    September 8th: 179.6 I'm getting there
    September 9th: 179.2 been walking away from the junk food:)
    September 16th: 178.8 super excited that I'm still making this happen but i need to step it up
    September 22nd: 177.8 even better. Finally drinking sufficient amounts of water
    September 24th: 177.2 Every little bit counts
    September 25th 175.6 I have been really good about walking away from the junk food. Trust me this can be really hard at 2am. This is really exciting! I haven't been below 180 since 2012.
    September 30th:173.4 had a few beers on Saturday and went out for Mexican food on Sunday. Slacked on O2 consumption the last few days.

    Total Loss for September…………..7.6lbs pretty happy with total loss for this month

    By October I hope to lose the last 8-10 pounds and be in maintenance. I have been doing this for a year now and assumed I would already be there, but alas I am still working on it. So good luck everyone! My weigh in days will be every Saturday. They seem to be my best days and the lowest.

    Challenge Starting Weight: 143.7
    Challenge Level: 2 (technically my goal is to lose 8.7 pounds)
    Challenge Goal weight: 135

    08/01: 143.7 I think this is a little higher than it should be, but we are starting here.
    08/03: 142.2 I've been here for a couple of days now, hoping for a loss next week
    08/10: 139.6 this seems super low today. It will probably bounce up a bit, but I’m happy with it today
    08/17: 142.1 I have not been doing great this last week. Monday I’m back on track I matter what.
    08/24: 142.1 same as last week but that’s ok. The last couple of weeks I have not been on my best game!
    8/31: In Texas to deal with husbands dad’s stuff

    Total Loss For August:143.6 = a loss of 0.1 pound (not a great month, lol)

    9/01: In Texas NS
    09/07: 143.8 I’m on a diet break right now so this is pretty good
    09/14: 143.2 Just getting back into the swing of things. Looking to finish strong and around 141.xxxx
    09/21: 143.7 was a lot lower yesterday, but ate Chinese for lunch. Sodium I am sure
    09/28: 140.9 super excited about this. Have seen this number a couple of times before. Hoping it will stick
