    Hello everyone.

    Thank you for posting the challenge. I am new to MFP. Was a former WeightWatcher. Thought about joining again since I found it was a very good program for me, but since O took over local meetings are hard to come by and the online cost is higher. May upgrade MFP, if, and only if tech department can get my phone log in fixed (worked fine and then one day asked me to log in - since that time I have removed twice from phone, changed PW, etc. and still am unable to access via phone).

    That all said the reason why I like MFP is the logging in of foods and exercises. It's database is extensive and I have had no issues finding the foods I have eaten and/or plan to eat. It is very much like WW except I am counting calories instead of points.

    Stats
    08/24 - Starting Weight - 195.0
    09/01 - 189.0
    09/02 - 188.8
    09/03 - 188.2
    09/04 - 188.6 - I am blaming the slight gain on hurricane Dorian. Stocked up with wholesome foods/vegetables but those darn Pringles (the only junk I bought) got me!
    09/05 - 188.2 - Back to pre-hurricane warning weight.
    09/06 - 188.0


    My ultimate goal is to hit and maintain my weight at 155. I have a medium to large frame and am 5'9". Once I start building back up the muscle, if I get much lower than 155 I start to look sickly. Another goal is to continue to log foods and exercise FOREVER! Every time I have lost and maintained for years as soon as I give up my journal the weight starts to creep up and I am back where I started. I am not so young anymore and I do not want to find myself in retirement as a sickly old lady who collects cats (lol).

    I hope everyone has a great day!

    Original starting weight -190lbs

    September goal - 168lbs (my goal will always be to lose 5lbs. Anything else is gravy :smile:
    Ultimate goal - 168lbs (also I don't want to be overwhelmed. So ultimate goal will always be my goal for that month). I haven't been in the 160s in a few years so serious goal.

    Happy Saturday everyone!!

    I have literally gotten on the scale 5 times this morning because I really did not believe it. So I will not be surprised if there is weight gain tomorrow. My scale is sometimes funky and likes to take a weekend off every now and then.

    That said - I used to weigh in weekly (former WW) and after reading several articles on the matter have been weighing daily. Per the most recent articles daily weigh ins can really shed some light on diet.

    Per my previous post I keep remembering pointers as I move forward with this journey and something about plateaus came to my mind. When we find ourselves hitting a wall and at the same time are maintaining our diet and exercise programs we either need to change it up (like exercise) or start measuring all of our food again. I know, for me, in the beginning I measure everything. Then, I start saying, oh, that looks like a tablespoon of mayo or a cup of brown rice. And, then I break out the measuring spoons and cups and find my portions have taken a detour.

    09/06 - 188.0
    09/07 - 186.8 - Is the scale on the weekend shift?

    OK, enough from me. I hope everyone has a positive day. Remaining thankful and praying for those suffering in the Bahamas (and, around the world).

    I doubt anyone was offended. You aren't the first, and I bet you won't be the last. See you over on the other challenge.

    Good morning everyone.
    Early morning for me (as is every morning). Got 30 minutes of fast-paced walking in and am meal planning and getting some housework done. Scale is still moving in the right direction. I am attributing the quick drop to my previous lack of attention to my diet and no exercise. The quick drop is certainly motivating. I know in due time this will slow and I will have to switch things up and ramp up the exercise.

    My original ultimate goal for this month was to be down 10 pounds since my starting weight. I would be extremely happy to hit the 184.0 for a total of 11 pounds.

    I hope everyone has a great day.

    So interesting, when your calories were lower you gained weight, and when your calories were up you lost weight. Hmm.

    I think that we weren't sure that there was going to be a September thread or not, so I was glad to see it created. These threads are like a daily thing for some of us who really count on them to keep us motivated and accountable.
