STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL), Aug : 186.8
CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 187
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*
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! 🦃🥧
Dec. 9: ...Fri Dec. 6~ back up to 172.8...I was hoping to lose at least a lb this past week, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be! Anyway, not losing hope, not giving up! I'll just have to watch it over the weekend, try again on Mon! (BTW...are we doing this again for the Winter?? I feel like I need to be held accountable LOL.) ....AGH!!! It's a TOTAL MONDAY this week, folks~ my weigh-in was NOT good. I went up to 174.2 lbs. This is such a bad time of the year for me...THREE birthdays celebrated yesterday, plus Thanksgiving last week and all that pumpkin pie sitting in the fridge with no one home to eat it but myself, so of course it made my lunch a couple of times 😩 ...it was, of course, the only thing I ate, but still....Anyway, I don't see myself making my goal by the end of Dec. unless I knock it off & GET BUSY!! No more cheating (birthday cakes are DONE, thank goodness!) Back to WORK!!! 😡😭 .....

Challenge Weight loss goal: 167 (This will bring me to my challenge goal of 20 lbs.)
