    Hoping for a good week this week. made good progress, but then a stressor shot up my weight last Monday....going back down but hoping it was a temp surge only. At this point not showing any September loss. Trying not to stress. Did a lot of exercise today, planning to increase activity this week if possible. I really want a 5 lb loss this month. I bought 2 pairs of 14 shorts for vacation, and they almost fit me; 1/4 inch more. ....

    @gabi_texanmom what kind of purse are you going to get? I love love handbags. Coach is about the nicest I can afford so if I treat myself it would be one of those.

    NSV for the weekend was having company over and putting out donuts for them but not giving in to temptation myself. That felt awesome. I made really good progress last week and didn’t want to derail that.

    I'm down 4lbs and I really wanna try to lose another 4 by the end of the month.

    💙Last week goal roundup💙

    *Eat at or under my cal limit = 4/6
    *Strength train = 1/3
    *Cardio = 2/3

    Didn't quite hit my goals for last week, so I'm going to push hard this week to do so. Headed to a new exercise class that my friend takes (MAX Challenge) just for one drop in session because she can get me in for free, but I'm trying to change things up a little.

    Hope everyone else's September is going well!

    Ugh, I had an awful weekend. Still struggling with them. I did great all week. We went out to eat Friday with friends that are in town and I have a very difficult time making good choices. When I am spending $ I want something good! I picked stuffed grouper and opted for asparagus and rice pilaf as sides. I only ate half of it which was a an accomplishment for me! However, they had rolls too, and I had two of those. The rest of the weekend was just a spiral. Not eating at all, then when I did, not good stuff. I also had drinks. Water intake next to nothing. I am so disappointed in myself.

    I gain weight if I look at food (very easily) and when I got on the scale this morning I almost cried. Just a few days of falling off the wagon, I have now gained back the weight I lost last week and a few pounds above what my weight was when I started in September. I have to figure out my weekends. I know what happened...my son was at his dads and I was kinda down and lonely. Wish I could figure out how to control my eating and drinking when this happens.

    I food prepped yesterday and I made enough to last through the weekend. Maybe this will help. Made a variety so I wouldn't get bored with it. I am sticking with my same goals this week and I am not giving up because of this set back. I have to keep trying to change my habits and live a healthier lifestyle.

    SW: 276.6
    Sept start weight - 259.6
    CW: 261.6
    GW: 160

    Goal for September:


    - log everyday
    - increase water intake
    - exercise more
    - limit alcohol intake

    Oh my gosh, I love love handbags too! I usually just admire from afar LOL. I'd love a new Coach bag - that's definitely on my list. I have a gray Michael Kors and a tan crossbody Coach, but my everyday bag is a black and gold Steve Madden. As a treat for sticking with it and losing 20lbs, I am getting a very nice, small, black Dooney & Bourke with a matching wallet! I am so excited! I never ever treat myself, even now I will buy them used, but they are sooo nice. I think I will motivate myself with a nice used handbag every 20lbs. When I reach ultimate goal weight I will defintely splurge and buy myself my dream Disney Dooney & Bourke. I guess I better start saving NOW...

    I’ve been crazy busy with family stuff, but I seem to be moving in the right direction. I had to see it two days in a row to believe it, but I’ve made it to Onederland!! I weighed in at 199.6 this morning. Thoroughly on track for a 5 lb weight loss this month.

    My goal this past week was to get to the gym at least 3 times. I went to the gym once, but the weather cooled nicely this weekend so I walked 2 miles each evening the past 3 days. Goal this week: 4 times to the gym or outside!

    Connie in KY

    YAY you!! Congratulations on your milestone and reaching Onederland

    Month start: 227
    Sept 16: 223

    That's pretty well on target, right? I was feeling frustrated but looking at the numbers it's ok.

    The rest of the month is gonna be a struggle though. I'm on a combination low FODMAP and gastritis diet, which leaves me eating... not a whole lot.

    Yup - definitely ON TARGET! Way to go.
    I'm hoping your new diet gives you some relief soon.

    My goals for september
    -practice more mindful eating
    -cut down on off days ( skipping planned exercises or eating fast food)
    -not dwelling, or hating on myself, if i do have an off day. Instead just focusing on doing better the next day

    What bugs me is when you just see a flicker of the number you want, always on a sneaky unofficial weighing day, and then you don't see that number again for weeks!
