    @LisaW57 -- nice job this past quarter. I remember looking at a pretty flat graph for quite some time, and now it's definitely on the decrease. Of course the graph has a pretty small range, but I would take a two pound loss by trend over a few months. Nice job! I don't expect you'll get to your ultimate goal before the end of the year. The last five or ten seem, at least to me, tenacious. But you'll get there early 2020. That's a good 2020 vision. See you in maintenance in 2020!

    Thanks, @mtararoot. It's been slow for sure. And long periods of flat lined trends. I have never had this much trouble dropping weight - it's a brand new learning curve with lots of trial and error. It seems I've hit on something that's working. Time will tell. I suspect it will be spring before I see goal. And that's ok.

    On a side note, thank you for turning me onto Trend Weight and The Hacker's Diet. While I don't follow that diet, I learned a lot. And focusing on the trend instead of the scale had kept me in the game.

    The trend keeps me sane when the scale tries to get in my head. The trend frustrates me occasionally when it can't see that was just a blip. I'm glad it helps you, too.

    Close to goal is a pain in the tigress.

    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.

    11/15 ~ 140.6 Would love to post a 138.xxxx before Thanksgiving. We will see

    11/22 ~ 138.7 I like this weight, finally. Hopefully I can keep it here

    11/29 ~ 142.2 up a bit after Thanksgiving. oh well, hopefully it will drop soon

    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 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.

    November 30: 146.2 (10-day average 144.4)

    November Goal: 143.0
    November Actual: I've been up and down all month, but oddly my weight trend has been really steady. I end the month with the trend about a pound above goal.

    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.

    End of Fall (08:18 PST December 21):
    December 30:
    End of year:

    Weight lost this week: Looks like I stopped the gain. My scale is just a hair below a week ago, and my ten-day average is exactly the same. Now to push down in the other direction back to my goal! 😖 🤯 My mass was slowly climbing from October 1 through about November 11. 😱 I put a stop to it for about a week, but it started up again. I will get back to goal! Those last few pounds, though; they're tenacious. They keep wanting to come back, and I keep trying to evict them. 😉 My trending weight is within two pounds of my goal, so I hope to be at goal by the end of December, and I hope you find YOUR success this week, too. 👌

    Good luck with YOUR goals! 🍀

    My name is Donna


    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 196.6
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 166.6



    9/26~ Challenge begins 196.6

    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!

    11/14 188.8 This is not going according to plan. I’ve got to get a grip!

    11/21 186.8 Was a better number yesterday but I blew it. Still, a 2 lb loss this past week is nothing to sneeze at. I still need to get that grip!

    11/28 185.6 Travel this week set me back, but this is still an improvement over last week. I am determined that Thanksgiving will not be the start of my usual fall/winter spiral downward in defeat. I worry more about all the big city travel for shopping than I do about the actual holiday meals. The meals are one day (just don’t keep the leftovers! Give, Give, Give). The shopping season is 5-6 weeks of sitting in cars driving and eating in restaurants. The diabetes only complicates things. I’m going to have to plan wisely.

    December 5 184.6 The Christmas traveling begins today. It will be an up & down week!

    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.
    11/8 - 182.6
    11/9 - 183.6
    11/10 - 184.4 - Ate pretzels yesterday.
    11/11 - 181.4
    11/12 - 183
    11/13 - 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.
    11/14 - 182.6
    11/15 - DNW
    11/16 - 184.4 - Very early weigh in , but could have been carb choice. I will assess carb foods/carb grams and effects on daily weight at the end of the month.
    11/17 - DNW
    11/18 - 183.6
    11/19 - 183.2
    11/20 - DNW
    📍11/21 - 183 - I don't like my weight hovering here, but right now it's not about my weight number, it's about healing. Feeling calmer, sleeping better.

    End of year (December 31):

    I moved my weigh day to Saturday for December for convenience.

    Weight lost this week: Depends on what number you look at. My scale is almost a pound below a week ago, and my ten-day average is up about a third of a pound. I am now seeing a pattern the last three years of slow gain from October through December. 😖 🤯 The last three years I got back down after December, and my gain this year is less than last year (and last year was less than 2018). 😱 I will get back to goal! Those last few pounds, though; they're tenacious. They keep wanting to come back, and I keep trying to evict them. 😉 My trending weight is within two pounds of my goal, so I hope to be at goal by the end of December, and I hope you find YOUR success this week, too. 👌

    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.


    Good luck with YOUR goals! 🍀


    December Goal: 143.0
    December Actual: ....

    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.

    11/15 ~ 140.6 Would love to post a 138.xxxx before Thanksgiving. We will see

    11/22 ~ 138.7 I like this weight, finally. Hopefully I can keep it here

    11/29 ~ 142.2 up a bit after Thanksgiving. oh well, hopefully it will drop soon


    December 6 ~ 140.2 was lower yesterday, but ate pizza and drank a couple of beers to watch the Cowboys lose again.

    •Thursday Updates•
    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.
    11/8 - 182.6
    11/9 - 183.6
    11/10 - 184.4 - Ate pretzels yesterday.
    11/11 - 181.4
    11/12 - 183
    11/13 - 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.
    11/14 - 182.6
    11/15 - DNW
    11/16 - 184.4 - Very early weigh in , but could have been carb choice. I will assess carb foods/carb grams and effects on daily weight at the end of the month.
    11/17 - DNW
    11/18 - 183.6
    11/19 - 183.2
    11/20 - DNW
    📍11/21 - 183 - I don't like my weight hovering here, but right now it's not about my weight number, it's about healing. Feeling calmer, sleeping better.
    11/28 - 183
    December 5 - 185.4

    My name is Donna


    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 196.6
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 166.6



    9/26~ Challenge begins 196.6

    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!

    11/14 188.8 This is not going according to plan. I’ve got to get a grip!

    11/21 186.8 Was a better number yesterday but I blew it. Still, a 2 lb loss this past week is nothing to sneeze at. I still need to get that grip!

    11/28 185.6 Travel this week set me back, but this is still an improvement over last week. I am determined that Thanksgiving will not be the start of my usual fall/winter spiral downward in defeat. I worry more about all the big city travel for shopping than I do about the actual holiday meals. The meals are one day (just don’t keep the leftovers! Give, Give, Give). The shopping season is 5-6 weeks of sitting in cars driving and eating in restaurants. The diabetes only complicates things. I’m going to have to plan wisely.

    December 5 184.6 The Christmas traveling begins today. It will be an up & down week!

    12/12 186.6 I fell off the wagon with the travels. Getting back on track, at least for now. Lord, help me thru the rest of this holiday season!

    12/13 ~ 137.7 right smack in the middle of my maintenance weight and I seem to be maintaining, so I am happy

    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: 145.6 (10-day average 144.6) - checking in a day early this week as I'm going to be in a rush tomorrow at 05:30
    November 18: 143.6 (10-day average 144.8)
    November 25: 145.2 (10-day average 143.8)
    November 30: 146.2 (10-day average 144.4)
    November Goal: 143.0
    November Actual: I've been up and down all month, but oddly my weight trend has been really steady. I end the month with the trend about a pound above goal.

    December
    December 7: 145.4 (10-day average 144.7)
    Dec 14: 143.8 (10-day average 144.8)
    End of Fall (08:18 PST December 21):
    December 28:
    End of year (December 31):

    I moved my weigh day to Saturday for December for convenience.

    Weight lost this week: My scale reports a 1.6 pound loss from a week ago; my ten-day average is up an insignificant amount. It is possible I have stopped what may be an annual pattern of slow gain from October through December. 😖 🤯 My Fall spike this year is less than last year, so that's a success. 😱 I will get back to goal! Those last few pounds, though; they're tenacious. They keep wanting to come back, and I keep trying to evict them. 😉 My trending weight is within two pounds of my goal, so I hope to be at goal by the end of December, and I hope you find YOUR success this week, too. 👌

    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.


    Good luck with YOUR goals! 🍀
