    @KittenloverTN
    Good luck with your new IF goal.
    It works for some people but doesn't work for everyone. Keto doesn't work for everyone. Paleo doesn't work for everyone. etc. etc. Some people swear by eating 6 times a day.
    Once you experiment with it you will see if it works for you or not - and how easy or hard it is to stick to.

    You picked a great challenge to join as your first one! You will find everyone here very supportive.
    We are all trying to do the same thing...lose weight!

    Female, 5'3", 58 years old for 10 more days.
    I will be weighing daily, it keeps me accountable and motivated and shows trends.
    Starting weight October 28.18 - 191
    September start 158.6
    September goal 153
    Ultimate goal is 115

    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, and 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 and try ; - )

    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 07 - 159.7 - So the first week of the month is a bit of a bust so far, but I am determined to push through.
    September 08 - 159.5 - I have been really "good", so am hoping to get out of the Gain column and into the Loss column soon.
    September 09 - 160.3 - no comment
    September 10 - 159.3

    September Loss/Gain: Gain 0.7 lbs

    September Loss - ??

    Thoughts: Not hitting the strength training goals, but I'm listening to my body. Good sore is one thing, warning sore is another. I do not want to push forward at the expense of injury. The whole purpose off this is to build stamina and strength to be less susceptible to injury. It's all good.

    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 - 3873 ⬇
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 31 ⬆
    • 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 ✔
    • 9/8-10 - 35, 40, Rest ✔
    • Next 9/11-13 - 40, 45, 50, Rest

    4-Week Progress:

    You said: "Good sore is one thing, warning sore is another. I do not want to push forward at the expense of injury. The whole purpose off this is to build stamina and strength to be less susceptible to injury. It's all good."

    I hear you sister. We definitely get new areas that hurt as we are aging. And for sure we want to build some muscle to support our joints and bones.

    I have been in and around a sore shoulder for a few days, so flinging and spinning my arms around in Zumba is probably not helping it. Pretty glad that there is ice skating today and I will take a day off of Zumba. Of course skating is all quads and buns doing the work and little arm movement. Calorie burn nonetheless, and endorphins. and at least as fun as Zumba : - )

    I am interested to know what kind of strength training that you are doing.

    We haven't seen @mari_moulin in a long time.
    Has anyone heard from her?

    Girl, if you are reading this please at least say hello to us.

    I have seen her on my home page here & there but not regularly. Last time I saw her she was working out hard & doing very well. She had gained a couple of pounds in the months prior and was getting it back off with lots of extra exercise plans.

    I am interested to know what kind of strength training that you are doing.

    Hey Dawn. I'm doing inclined push ups (against bathroom vanity), squats, lunges, arm circles and side bends using my body weight for resistance. Also doing tricep lifts using 1 lb weights.

    I started the push ups against kitchen counter and went to the lower vanity as I got stronger. I started the tricep lifts with 3 pound weights but backed off to 1 lb to get more reps and not injure shoulder.

    I started with 10 reps and gradually worked up to 40. I fell off, so this time started at 20. We'll see how far it goes
