    September Loss - ??

    Thoughts: I did tweak my goals for September. Because the no calorie intake after 8pm has been effective for me, and I'm not a breakfast eater by nature, I figured I was already at a 12-13 hour fast. I'm gradually moving towards a 16:8 IF. Other than my sweet cream in my coffee, I don't think it will be too hard to get there - and it will help me maximum my limited calories at lunch and dinner.

    I fell off my strength training in a big way, so I joined a Squat & Lunge challenge in another thread here. My "regular" routine is pushups, squats, lunges, arm circles, side bends, and tricep lifts. I'm aiming for 3 days on / 1 rest day. I'm accelerating the reps as I go, being mindful of my arthritic knees and avoiding injury. The ultimate goal is consistency, and I think the accountability of a challenge will help.

    Anytime I stress my body, I see a fluid gain. Sure enough, I saw just that earlier this week. I've upped the water intake and am powering thru. I never get a "whoosh," but it is starting to fall off.

    September Game Plan & Goals: (Use stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Move to 2-week meal plans 👀
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • No calorie intake before 10am, edging towards noon for a 16:8 IF
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 3777 ⬇
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 22 ⬆
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day - 5 for 5 with 1 mile walk on rest day

    Female, 5'3", 58 years old for 14 more days.
    I will be weighing daily, it keeps me accountable and motivated and shows trends.
    Starting weight October 28.18 - 191
    August goal was 155 (Same as July goal) - lost 1.4 pounds for the month of August, lost 2.0 pounds in the month of July lost 0.7 pounds in the month of June. Slow going, but going. 4.1 pounds lost in 3 months, but 30 lost in 10 months so happy with that. It would be great to have lost 40 by October 28.19 - 2 months to lose 10 pounds, a girl can hope ; - )
    September goal 153
    Ultimate goal is 115

    September 01 - 158.6
    September 02 - 160.2 - Holiday weekend festivities caught up with me a bit. Hopefully I can get rid of that in a few days. Gained 1.6 in 1 day, took me almost 2 months to lose that much. It comes back way faster than I can lose it.
    September 03 - 161.7 - ouch. I am sure that tomorrow will be better.
    September 04 - 159.6 - still up, but heading in the right direction
    September 05 - 159.3 - I will try to get in extra workouts today.
    September 06 - 159.8

    September Loss/Gain: Gain 1.2 lbs

    September Loss - ??

    Thoughts: The amped up game plan is paying off on the scale! Trend Weight looks flat-lined and the projected weight is headed in wrong direction, but since these are based on averages, it will start pulling back down.

    Yesterday was supposed to be day 3 of my 3 days of training / 1 rest day. I'll just pick up here and do 4/1 to get back on track. I made it past 11am 2 days this week as I move towards a16:8 IF. These two changes seem to be working and I saw a steady loss all week. We'll see if continues this week :smile:

    I just did my grocery shopping with an eye to a 2 week meal plan. So we'll see how that goes.

    September Game Plan & Goals: (Use stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Move to 2-week meal plans 👀
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • No calorie intake before 10am, edging towards noon for a 16:8 IF
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 3979 ⬆
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 28 ⬆
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day Ready for Round 3

    Strength Training: (with accelerated reps)
    • 9/1-4 - 20, 25, 30, Rest ✔
    • 9/5-7 - 30, 35, Rest ✔
    • Next: 9/8-12 - 35, 40, 45, 50, Rest
