    My name is Lisa
    Age 62; Height 5'2"

    Original Starting Weight ~ 158.5 (12/30/18)
    Challenge Starting Weight (9/26) ~ 147.5 (Trend Weight 147.4)
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 140.0
    Ultimate Goal Weight ~ 135.0

    Notes: To say October was a weird month would be an understatement. I saw a nice whoosh, then a spike. Big spikes are normal for me after a new low. Would like to see that number again for November. But then we end with Thanksgiving 🦃 Should be interesting, if nothing else.

    October 3 ~ 147.0 (Trend Weight 147.3)
    10/10 - 147.2 (Trend Weight 147.4)
    10/17 - 147.3 (Trend Weight 147.3)

    Original starting weight (March 2013) - 175.4
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    September 23, 2019 starting weight - 141.8 (ten-day rolling average 142.7)
    Ultimate goal - Maintain around 143 (range between 140 - 150)


    September:
    September 1: 143.0 (10-day average 145.8) First day of Meteorological Fall.
    September 23: 141.8 (10-day average 142.7) First day of Astronomical Fall. So I'll go with this date and make Monday my weigh-in day this season.
    September 26: 142.8 (10-day average 142.6) First day of challenge as requested by Tish.
    September 30: 139.4 (10-day average 141.4)
    September Goal: 143
    September Actual: I passed my goal and kept losing. Not a real problem yet, and I'm happy with it. August wasn't a great month for me. September was my catch up. Now if I can hold steady, I'll be chuffed.

    October
    October 7: 139.2 (10-day average 140.0)
    October 14: 144.4 (10-day average 141.1)
    October 21: 142.2 (10-day average 142.4)
    October 28: 142.6 (10-day average 143.3)
    October 31 - 144.6 (10-day average 143.8)
    October Goal: 143
    October Actual: Uh oh. I'm up from my monthly goal.


    November
    November 4: 146.0 (10-day average 143.8)
    November 11:
    November 18:
    November 25:


    Weight lost this week: Scale says I gained 3.8 pounds, and ten-day average says a half a pound.This feels bad, but when I looked on my spreadsheet, today's scale weight is actually the goal weight I had set for myself back in January 2018 when I started on MFP, so I should still be happy. 😉 But I have lowered my goal since then, and I'm far enough above I might slide back to a goal of slow loss versus maintaining. Or just get a better control of the really yummy foods I've been cooking and eating out. It's just little disappointing to see the average go up. 😖 🤯 😱 I should take my own advice and relax because I'm doing ok. 👌

    November Goal: 143.0
    November Actual: Check back to see how this goes closer to the end of the month

    Challenge Weight loss goal: Range between 142-148
    Actual Weight loss for the challenge: I'm still in my goal range by scale and average, just not by much. I had expanded my goal range, but I'm still using the old tighter one. For now I just need to stop the gain.

    Good luck with YOUR goals! 🍀

    Notes: Off to a good start. Rolling averages (Trend Weight & projected loss) is off from last month's whoosh and spike. I've got a couple of days off work, so I'm going to look for ideas to lighten up our traditional Thanksgiving fare and begin my meal planning for that since I'm hosting this year.

    November 7 - 183 - Scale weight has been up and down this past week. It may get a little more erratic in the days ahead, because I reset my calorie intake (increase) and macros (higher carb grams) two days ago.

    October 3 191.6 Woo Hoo! What a turbulent week of travel, ups & downs! Fighting very hard for success. 180’s I am talking to YOU…..Bring it ON!

    10/10 191.8 I made a ton of progress this week that was completely wiped out by 2 trips in the same week including lots of car sitting/driving & restaurant food. I hope a lot of this is fluid retention. I picked up some parsley, I shall be drinking a parsley tea today!

    10/17 189.0 Working it back down. Not always easy when my own body fights me with several health conditions & many medications. As time goes on, I am becoming more & more aware of my limitations and the reasons for my fluctuations. That is a gift.

    10/24 188.4 I am working so hard for progress. Its such a slow process these days. Ah…to be young again!

    10/30 188.0 Travel today.

    November 7 186.0 More progress than I realized for this past week. I’ve been stuck the last few days so I am going to rethink things. If it keeps up, an egg fast may be in order. Or a beef & butter fast. Last resort though as I don’t find either very pleasurable!

    @deepwoodslady - you are doing great. Just keep it up. Slow and steady is great. No need to feel bad that you're losing SLOWLY. It's way more sustainable. Just keep doing what you're doing. It's working!

    I will be back for another round! Did way better during the summer challenge than I did in the Autumn one. So maybe I can keep that going.

    Autumn Challenge SW - 155.4 EW - 151.9 Lost 3.5
    Summer Challenge SW - 151.9 EW - 144.3 Lost 7.6


    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 144.3 My weigh-in days will be Friday though
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 135-138 (ultimate goal weight)

    September 23, 2019 First day of Fall -145.4 Monday
    September 24, 2019 (last Spring/Summer challenge update)~ 144.3

    9/27~ 142.0 great start to the challenge. I am losing so slow these days, so I am hoping by the end of next month to be in the 130's firmly. Even if it is only 139.9, lol.

    October 4 ~142.0 same. I am with in 4 pounds of my maintenance goals, but it is proving to be a very difficult 4 to 6 pounds to get rid of. Maybe I will get somewhere next week.

    10/11 ~ 141.4 Finally made some progress. Not much by any means, but it's progress and I will take it.

    10/18 ~ 141.5 was lower all week. I didn't even have a beer last night and I still am up a bit.

    10/25 ~ 143.9 I have been high all week. Don't think I am getting anywhere this month

    10/31~ 140.7 Not great I know!

    November 1~ 141.5 Why can't I get under 140 uuugghh

    11/8 ~ 143.4 was lower all week, but went out for pizza for my husband's bday. Hopefully I will be back down next week.

    November 25:


    Weight lost this week: Scale says I lost about half a pound, but my ten-day average is up almost a whole pound. 😖 🤯 My mass has been slowly climbing since the beginning of October. 😱 I'm still well below where I got in August, so all is not lost. In fact, it's really not that bad at all, it just looks like it to me sometimes. 😉 In reality, I'm still near the middle of my goal range, and my weighted moving average weight is just a couple pounds over my goal. But in my head I look at that graph and just see a line going up instead of holding steady or dropping back to my actual goal. In reality, I am actually below the initial goal I set a couple years ago when I started my current journey, so I just need to see this as success rather than failure. Isn't it funny how our brains tease us like this. Because I know I'm doing fine, but somehow it just doesn't feel like it. I know I'm not alone in this. Thanks for letting me rant about it. 👌


    November Goal: 143.0
    November Actual: Check back to see how this goes closer to the end of the month

    Challenge Weight loss goal: Range between 142-148
    Actual Weight loss for the challenge: I'm still in my goal range by scale and average, just not by as much as I prefer. I had expanded my goal range, but I'm still using the old tighter one. For now I just need to stop the gain.

    Good luck with YOUR goals! 🍀

    My name is Lisa
    Age 62; Height 5'2"

    Original Starting Weight ~ 158.5 (12/30/18)
    Challenge Starting Weight (9/26) ~ 147.5 (Trend Weight 147.4)
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 140.0
    Ultimate Goal Weight ~ 135.0

    Notes: This is looking good. Scale is gradually moving down after the weird whoosh and spike. Used my time of work wisely - figured out the menus for both Thanksgiving and a family get together this Sunday that shouldn't set me back. Reading the book Quench which goes into the science of hydration and gives some great strategies for maximizing hydration from food. Highly recommend it!

    September 23, 2019 - 185.2
    September 24, 2019 (last Spring/Summer challenge update)~ 185.6 - I hope this improves by Thursday.
    9/25 - 184.6
    9/26 - 184
    October 3 - 182.4
    10/10 - 181.4
    10/17 - 181.2 - 183.2 on the 11th and 180.8 on the13th. Then up and down again. It's like driving on a rocky road.
    10/24 - 184 - Fluid retention. All joints feeling tight this morning.

    10/31 - 181.8 - 2.2 lbs lost
    so far. Smh. Takes me a long time to get rid of fat.
    November 7 - 183 - Scale weight has been up and down this past week. It may get a little more erratic in the days ahead, because I reset my calorie intake (increase) and macros (higher carb grams) two days ago.

    11/14 - 183 - I've been higher and lower than this weight in the past week. I'm trying to settle into 16/8 or 18/6 IF (instead of 20 to 23 hrs of daily fasting) for a while.
