    Hoping to reach my final goal weight by the end of this year and start to figure out maintenance. I lost just over 6 pounds in the summer challenge so the weight is coming off super slow these days, but I am ok with that. My weigh-in days are on Tuesdays. Good luck everyone!

    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL): 178 in July of 2018
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 143.6

    Sept.3: 148.7 just got back from a 4 day trip to Texas for FIL funeral. Lots of alcohol, stress, and food out.
    Sept.10: 146.5 still trying to get back down to pre-Texas weight. Haven't really been trying though.
    Sept.17: 146.3 Was much lower all week, but TOM showed up yesterday. Water retention!
    Sept.24: 144.3 started back logging and CICO last week, so this is a nice drop. 1 more week to lose a couple more pounds

    Sept. Goal: 140
    Sept. Actual: 140.9 = 9/30 weigh-in (super happy with this)


    Oct. 1: 145.9 have been super high the last couple of days. Hopefully it will come down soon
    Oct. 8: 144.9 it's movement. Have been lower all week, but this is after a 3 day weekend.
    Oct.15: 142.3 Finally some progress! Now to keep it up
    Oct. 22: 144.6 No words except for frustrating
    Oct. 29: 142.3 I am having to fight for every single ounce. I don;y know if I am ever going to get below 140

    Oct. Goal: 138.5
    Oct. Actual: 140.7 = 10/31 weigh in (I lost a whole 2/10 of a pound last month)


    Nov. 5: 139.7 Finally into a new decade. I have seen this number a couple of times now this week, but it hasn't stuck yet.
    Nov. 12: 141.3 Up a little from husbands birthday celebrations last weekend. Should be back down by the end of the week
    Nov. 19: 142.0 well this is definitely going the wrong direction. Although this is my weigh-in after a much needed 3 day weekend so I can't complain to much

    Nov. 26: 137.7 This is after a week on shingle medication and not eating very well at all. Hoping now that I am off and back to normal food I don't take a huge jump up. Technically I am in maintenance though!!!

    Nov. Goal: 137

    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL), Aug : 186.8
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 187

    Sept.2: 183.6
    Sept. 9: 184.6 (I believe this is actually correct...got a new scale last week, was not calibrated correctly! 😡)
    Sept.16: 184.6 ...weighed in again today (Sept. 20) scale said: 182.2!! so...I'm very happy about this! 😁 I'll try again on Mon., the 23rd...
    Sept.23: 181.6 (I am more used to weighing myself on Fridays so I will probably be posting to my updates here 2x per week...if I keep that up! So far, I'm doing OK... 😉 ...On Friday Sept. 27 I weighed in @ 180.6.~ lost another pound!! yea!
    Sept.30: 181.6 ...Well, that's kinda disappointing! I think it's partly due to swelling in my ankles, plus extra calories yesterday, AND most of all a real lack of exercise last week! But no worries here...I've hit plateaus before! I'll just keep on keepin' on!! Here's to a better week, right?!? 😉

    Sept. Goal: by the 30th I want to be down to 180.
    Sept. Actual: 181.6 (loss of 5.4 lbs)


    Oct 7: (will weigh in for this date when the time comes) Today, the 4th, I weighed in @ 179.6! So it pays to PAY ATTENTION,. .....right?!? LOL ....weighed in again today, Monday, the 7th ~ still @ 179.6. I was hoping to lose that ".6" over the weekend...but who can resist homemade mac'n'cheese??! Oh well...back to the treadmill...onward and downward, as they say.... 💪
    Oct 14: OK...so here it is, Friday 11 Oct ~ weighing in @ 177.6! lost another 2 lbs!!! 😁 See you all on Monday! ...~~ And now it's Monday the 14th, so once again....GOOD NEWS for yours truly: 176.8 lbs! I am feeling REALLY good about all this....lost 10.2 lbs, very hopeful about making my goal by the end of the year!
    Oct 21: And now, for my Friday weigh-in, I am now down another 1/2 lb: 176.2. ...very encouraging! I've lost 1.5 lbs in the past week, even tho' I have not had a chance to do any real workout in the past few days. But today will be different, I have promised myself! I am home all day so there is NO excuse! ...and I will see how Monday's results shape up... ... ... Monday, the 21st: OUCH!! Today, Monday Oct 21 ~ UP a pound. weighed in this morning @ 177.2...I knew that 2nd cupcake yesterday was a mistake, but how many times does my youngest turn 31yo, right? 🎂 ...I don't see myself making my Oct goal of 175 lbs, but we shall see...I still have over a week til then, so maybe if I FOCUS this week I can come close! (even tho next week I have my granddaughter's b*day party ~ turning 8yo, born on Halloween 🎃) ...I will be more careful...
    Oct 28: And here we are, on Friday 25 Oct, with my usual end-of-week post: This morning I came in @ 176.2 ~ so I lost that lb that was nagging at my conscience all week!! haha Big family get-together this Sunday @ my sister's house, so I will have to be especially diligent. *fingers crossed* ..... Monday, the 28th: 176.2 lbs. I am not gonna be disappointed about this ~ didn't gain, didn't lose (since Friday) and just relieved that I maintained yesterday @ the party! Only ONE slice of pizza...lol. The trouble with parties is this: the company is a delight. The food is delicious...but...I never know the count on anything!! 😱 ...but it was wonderful to see everybody! 😍 ...so I don't care lol.

    Oct goal: 175
    Oct actual: 174.4 (loss of another 7.2 lbs)
    😂

    Nov. 4: Today, Friday Nov 1 ~ weighed in this morning @ 174.4!! So I made my goal after all...and then some! It was a bit of a surprise ~ but a happy one. No one was home last night so I have no idea if we had any beggars or not...but we had no candy to give out because of other plans. And now I discovered a huge bag of leftover Halloween candy that my daughter brought home from a friend's house! I will just NOT snack too much on that. LOL ... 🎃🍫🍭....And once again, it's weigh-in day: Monday Nov 4 ~ down to 173 lbs!! so happy and proud of myself (if I may be allowed to boast here LOL) ...another birthday yesterday ~ my granddaughter turned 8yo on Halloween, so once again, cupcakes & IC all around! It was lots of fun 😂 but, remembering last week I made sure to hold back on those extra treats, and now it's paid off! kinda proud of myself .... 🤣...
    Nov 11: Today is actually Sunday Nov 10, but I'm logging in early (rather late cuz I wasn't here on Friday) but I'm still @ 173lbs. I was holding more than usual on Friday ~ actually went UP 2lbs due to not enough working out, water weight, probably those darned cupcakes sitting on the kitchen counter all week(even tho' I counted them as meals, not snacks: eat one, skip lunch 😖) ~ so I decided to weigh myself a day early just to check up on myself. So, I'm happy that I lost those 2lbs but I still wish I could be lighter than this. I feel like this past week has been a waste.... from now on NO MORE CUPCAKES. ...even if they get thrown OUT! 😡
    Nov. 18: It is the morning of Friday, Nov. 16. This is SO DEPRESSING! I weighed in @ 173.8 lbs. ...I have not lost a single ounce; as a matter of fact, I have gained nearly a lb back! And I was sure to get in a couple of workouts, I was as careful as possible counting my caloric intake...I've hit plateaus before, but THIS is RIDICULOUS! From now on, I am doing a workout every single day (except Sundays) & I'll see if that helps! (I don't even think I lost any inches, either!! 😭) But I am NOT giving up!! And I'll check in again on Monday, the 18th...hopefully with better news!
    ....UPDATE: On Sunday, Nov 17, I weighed myself (a day early) cuz for some reason that plateau was really buggin' me & my weight was down to 171.2! So finally, I rested easier...and then ~ This morning, Monday Nov 18, I was up a lb again: 172.2...but I'm thinkin' it must be water weight, right?!? No matter, at least I'm DOWN!! ...'bout time! 😊...
    Nov. 25: 172.8 ...depressing? YES! I don't know what I did wrong all week, but I guess I'll just keep at it; sooner or later, it's gotta get better! 😩
    Nov. 29: 173.2...I gained 1 lb since my last weigh-in but I did splurge a bit more this week than I would have wanted to ...I will get better, I have PROMISED MYSELF! I still have 1 month to go, right?!

    Nov. Goal: 170 *revised*

    Not my check-in day, but it's the end of the month.


    Original starting weight (March 2013) - 175.4
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    August 30, 2019 starting weight - 146.0 (ten-day rolling average 146.7)
    Ultimate goal - Maintain around 143 (range between 140 - 150)

    I had achieved my goal last Winter and gone into maintenance. I have mostly stayed within my goal range, but have bounced around a bit. Now as the seasons change again, a new maintenance challenge awaits. I'm sticking to it!

    September 1: 143.0 (10-day average 145.8) This is the meteorological beginning of fall.
    September 2: 148.2 (10-day average 146.0) Look how the scale went up so much but the average just a little.
    September 9: 147.2 (10-day average 145.2)
    September 16: 144.0 (10-day average 144.4)
    September 23: 141.8 (10-day average 142.7) Equinox - astronomical start of fall. I am now at my goal weight.
    September 30: 139.4 (10-day average 141.4)
    September Goal: 143
    September Actual: I passed my goal and kept losing. Not a real problem yet, and I'm happy with it.

    October 7: 139.2 (10-day average 140.0)
    October 14: 144.4 (10-day average 141.1)
    October 21: 142.2 (10-day average 142.4)
    October 28: 142.6 (10-day average 143.3)
    October 31 - 144.6 (10-day average 143.8)
    October Goal: 143
    October Actual: Uh oh. I am up from my monthly goal.

    November 4: 146.0 (10-day average 143.8)
    November 11: 145.6 (10-day average 144.6) - checking in a day early this week as I'm going to be in a rush tomorrow at 05:30
    November 18: 143.6 (10-day average 144.8)
    November 25: 145.2 (10-day average 143.8)
    November 30: 146.2 (10-day average 144.4)

    November Goal: 143.0
    November Actual: I've been up and down all month, but oddly my weight trend has been really steady. I end November up from the end of October - 1.2 pounds by scale and 0.8 pounds by rolling average. My scale weight is about three pounds above goal. If I just go by my trending weight, it's pretty close. I still did not QUITE make my goal, but it's only by a pound and a half. I know this is normal, but I'm not keen about it.

    Challenge Weight loss goal: Range between 142-148
    Actual Weight loss for the challenge: I'm still in my goal range by scale and average, just not by as much as I prefer. December: will you be friend or foe? Time will tell!

    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL), Aug : 186.8
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 187

    Sept.2: 183.6
    Sept. 9: 184.6 (I believe this is actually correct...got a new scale last week, was not calibrated correctly! 😡)
    Sept.16: 184.6 ...weighed in again today (Sept. 20) scale said: 182.2!! so...I'm very happy about this! 😁 I'll try again on Mon., the 23rd...
    Sept.23: 181.6 (I am more used to weighing myself on Fridays so I will probably be posting to my updates here 2x per week...if I keep that up! So far, I'm doing OK... 😉 ...On Friday Sept. 27 I weighed in @ 180.6.~ lost another pound!! yea!
    Sept.30: 181.6 ...Well, that's kinda disappointing! I think it's partly due to swelling in my ankles, plus extra calories yesterday, AND most of all a real lack of exercise last week! But no worries here...I've hit plateaus before! I'll just keep on keepin' on!! Here's to a better week, right?!? 😉

    Sept. Goal: by the 30th I want to be down to 180.
    Sept. Actual: 181.6 (loss of 5.4 lbs)

    Oct 7: (will weigh in for this date when the time comes) Today, the 4th, I weighed in @ 179.6! So it pays to PAY ATTENTION,. .....right?!? LOL ....weighed in again today, Monday, the 7th ~ still @ 179.6. I was hoping to lose that ".6" over the weekend...but who can resist homemade mac'n'cheese??! Oh well...back to the treadmill...onward and downward, as they say.... 💪
    Oct 14: OK...so here it is, Friday 11 Oct ~ weighing in @ 177.6! lost another 2 lbs!!! 😁 See you all on Monday! ...~~ And now it's Monday the 14th, so once again....GOOD NEWS for yours truly: 176.8 lbs! I am feeling REALLY good about all this....lost 10.2 lbs, very hopeful about making my goal by the end of the year!
    Oct 21: And now, for my Friday weigh-in, I am now down another 1/2 lb: 176.2. ...very encouraging! I've lost 1.5 lbs in the past week, even tho' I have not had a chance to do any real workout in the past few days. But today will be different, I have promised myself! I am home all day so there is NO excuse! ...and I will see how Monday's results shape up... ... ... Monday, the 21st: OUCH!! Today, Monday Oct 21 ~ UP a pound. weighed in this morning @ 177.2...I knew that 2nd cupcake yesterday was a mistake, but how many times does my youngest turn 31yo, right? 🎂 ...I don't see myself making my Oct goal of 175 lbs, but we shall see...I still have over a week til then, so maybe if I FOCUS this week I can come close! (even tho next week I have my granddaughter's b*day party ~ turning 8yo, born on Halloween 🎃) ...I will be more careful...
    Oct 28: And here we are, on Friday 25 Oct, with my usual end-of-week post: This morning I came in @ 176.2 ~ so I lost that lb that was nagging at my conscience all week!! haha Big family get-together this Sunday @ my sister's house, so I will have to be especially diligent. *fingers crossed* ..... Monday, the 28th: 176.2 lbs. I am not gonna be disappointed about this ~ didn't gain, didn't lose (since Friday) and just relieved that I maintained yesterday @ the party! Only ONE slice of pizza...lol. The trouble with parties is this: the company is a delight. The food is delicious...but...I never know the count on anything!! 😱 ...but it was wonderful to see everybody! 😍 ...so I don't care lol.

    Oct goal: 175
    Oct actual: 174.4 (loss of another 7.2 lbs) 😂

    Nov. 4: Today, Friday Nov 1 ~ weighed in this morning @ 174.4!! So I made my goal after all...and then some! It was a bit of a surprise ~ but a happy one. No one was home last night so I have no idea if we had any beggars or not...but we had no candy to give out because of other plans. And now I discovered a huge bag of leftover Halloween candy that my daughter brought home from a friend's house! I will just NOT snack too much on that. LOL ... 🎃🍫🍭....And once again, it's weigh-in day: Monday Nov 4 ~ down to 173 lbs!! so happy and proud of myself (if I may be allowed to boast here LOL) ...another birthday yesterday ~ my granddaughter turned 8yo on Halloween, so once again, cupcakes & IC all around! It was lots of fun 😂 but, remembering last week I made sure to hold back on those extra treats, and now it's paid off! kinda proud of myself .... 🤣...
    Nov 11: Today is actually Sunday Nov 10, but I'm logging in early (rather late cuz I wasn't here on Friday) but I'm still @ 173lbs. I was holding more than usual on Friday ~ actually went UP 2lbs due to not enough working out, water weight, probably those darned cupcakes sitting on the kitchen counter all week(even tho' I counted them as meals, not snacks: eat one, skip lunch 😖) ~ so I decided to weigh myself a day early just to check up on myself. So, I'm happy that I lost those 2lbs but I still wish I could be lighter than this. I feel like this past week has been a waste.... from now on NO MORE CUPCAKES. ...even if they get thrown OUT! 😡
    Nov. 18: It is the morning of Friday, Nov. 16. This is SO DEPRESSING! I weighed in @ 173.8 lbs. ...I have not lost a single ounce; as a matter of fact, I have gained nearly a lb back! And I was sure to get in a couple of workouts, I was as careful as possible counting my caloric intake...I've hit plateaus before, but THIS is RIDICULOUS! From now on, I am doing a workout every single day (except Sundays) & I'll see if that helps! (I don't even think I lost any inches, either!! 😭) But I am NOT giving up!! And I'll check in again on Monday, the 18th...hopefully with better news!
    ....UPDATE: On Sunday, Nov 17, I weighed myself (a day early) cuz for some reason that plateau was really buggin' me & my weight was down to 171.2! So finally, I rested easier...and then ~ This morning, Monday Nov 18, I was up a lb again: 172.2...but I'm thinkin' it must be water weight, right?!? No matter, at least I'm DOWN!! ...'bout time! 😊...
    Nov. 25: 172.8 ...depressing? YES! I don't know what I did wrong all week, but I guess I'll just keep at it; sooner or later, it's gotta get better! 😩

    Nov. Goal: 170 *revised*
    Nov. Actual:

    Challenge weight loss goal: 20-25lbs (my own goal ~ 20lbs)

    Dec. 2: 172.6 ~ I actually lost .2 lb! I must admit to being happily surprised by this even tho' I had hoped for better during this past month. But at least I can be relieved that I didn't gain during all that Thanksgiving feasting! 🦃🥧

    Sept 09: 193.6 Could have done much better if not for the nice neighbor’s zucchini bread for two days! Carbs, carbs, carbs but delicious!
    Sept 16: 191.0 Thrilled with a new low!
    Sept 23: 193.0 Up & Down all week. It does not look like I’ll make goal, especially with 2 days of travel this week. Ugg.
