Lose 5lbs + in September 2019
I will be here again, but I think I am taking a diet break for the next couple of weeks. I didn't really get anywhere in August because to be honest I lost my motivation. I have been on this journey for over a year now and have lost just over 35 pounds, but I am tired. Last month was a really rough month with some family issues that needed to be taken care of and now my birthday is coming up in a couple of days. So I am eating at maintenance until the 15th and will get back to my losing routine and finally get rid of these last couple of pounds. My ultimate goal is 135-138. I have been hovering between 142-145 the last month, so I am super close, but exhausted at the same time.
Original starting weight - 178
September starting weight - 8/30 weigh in 143.6
September goal - 141
Ultimate goal - 135-138
1st - 143.6 on 8/30 before I left for FIL funeral in Texas
5th- 145.1 still working on restaurant and water weight from 4 days in Texas
12th - 145.6 I am officially 40 year old! Where has the time gone, lol. I have been able to maintain and live normally for about 5 weeks now. Even with all the stress of my FIL passing and all the craziness of my kids getting back into their new school years I have been able to do it. I have 2 in college (different schools), a senior in high-school, an 8th grader, and a 5th grader, lol, so when I say it's been crazy I mean it. I am really looking forward to getting under 140 and reaching my goal, so the diet break is over. Back at it today! Let's see what I can do the last half of the month.
19th - 143.7 I have been back on my plan for about a week. Stalled for a couple of days with TOM, but dropped back down to my pre-break weight today. Hopefully I can lose at least a pound by next week and start making some progress.
26th - 142.0 was lower yesterday, but am totally fine with this weight in. A couple more ounces and I will hit my goal for the month!
30th - 140.9 I am using my Saturday and Sunday weight as my ending weight for September. Today I was at 145.9 tailgating and alcohol. Not a real number so I am down 2.7 pounds, my trend is down over 2 pounds, and I met my goal and surpassed it by a couple of ounces. I am ready for the new decade in October.6
So perhaps last week was a mix of everything with TOM as I started this weekend. No idea.
I worked hard to eat 1200 calories yesterday. Saturday was great (1300 calories) given that we went to a birthday party. I think my allergies were working together with my desire to keep the calories down because we only stayed at the party (in a rural area) for a short while before my husband told his family that we are done for the night due to my allergies.
Additionally, we went to the gym on Saturday afternoon and had a good workout.
I am glad I set a 3 lb loss goal. On to October everyone!
I have noticed that I am losing a bit of muscle in my arms so I will step away from cardio a bit and add strength exercises again. Initially, I started with a mix of strength exercises and cardio which I have learned leads to slow weight loss [10 lbs in 7 months] but I do love my small muscle gains.

@syreina lol NVM Just saw what you were talking about BTW keep up the great work any helpful tips? You seem to be doing a great job. My problem is that I typically lose a significant amount of weight fast but have trouble keeping it down or losing more even though I stay active and try my best to keep calories down.
