    @dawnbgethealthy an hr of Zumba at my weight (today, 121) burns 317 calories according to Cronometer. I also live in a 3rd floor apartment with wood floors - it's really not my thing either. I like walking, hiking, running or gym machines. I do not do well with anything requiring coordination, lol.

    I'll probably join a gym soon. I am not tolerating even cool weather now that I'm thinner.

    Oh yes, I forgot that you weigh so little, for sure you wouldn't burn as much as I do.

    Female, age 59, 5'3" (probably only 5'2" by now)
    Starting weight was October 28, 2018 - 191
    Long term goal 112-115
    October 28.2019 goal - 151

    1st day back to my scale. I don't know what my starting point was for the month, I will use the 7th.

    October 07 - 156.7 - Hard to believe that I actually lost weight on my vacation to Dallas, what with Texas bbq, Taquieras, Margaritas etc. Mind you, I ice skated almost every day. Very pleased.
    October 08 - 160.3 - That gain in one days seems kind of crazy since I had good workouts and was well within my eating levels. Perhaps I had been dehydrated from the flights and am hydrated again.
    October 09 - 159.3
    October 10 - 159.9
    October 11 - 159.6
    October 12 - 158.0
    October 13 - 158.1 - Thanksgiving dinner tonight, but going to eat very light beforehand to save up calories for stuffing and gravy etc.
    October 14 - 159.8 - This could go up a little more still as all of that fabulous food and drink settles in.
    October 15 - 159.5 - Half a month yet, Thanksgiving leftovers mostly finished. Time to lose some weight : - )
    October 16 - 158.7 - just 2 pounds up from October 7th now.
    October 17 - 158.2
    October 18 - 159.2
    October 19 - 156.9 - 9 days until my 1 year since starting. I was hoping for 40 pounds in a year, but at least I am getting close.
    October 20 - 157.5
    October 21 - 158.5
    October 22 - 158.5
    October 23 - 158.4 - I have had 1100 calories left over many times over the last week because of all my calorie burning activity. Hoping for a big whoosh soon.
    October 24 - 156.8 - Another day with 1100 calories left over that I didn't consume. I have been eating around 1300 calories per day on average.
    October 24 - 156.3
    October 25 - 158.2 - Well, 3 days in the 156s this month - 3 more days to my one year start on MFP
    October 26 - 158.5
    October 30 - 158.7 - I lost about 32 pounds in a year. I was hoping for 40, but I will take it. Staying the course.
    October 31 - 158.1

    I'm hoping to reach the top of my maintenance by the end of this month (138). By Thanksgiving I would like to be at my goal weight and maintaining with in the 3-4 pounds (135-138) I have given myself for my crazy fluctuations. I am losing at a really slow rate though and seem to be able to mess up and get off track very easily now that I am so close. My goal this month is to stay on track everyday with only Sunday's being a little more lenient. No other cheat days for any reason!

    Original starting weight - 178 July 2018
    October starting weight - 140.9
    October goal - 138
    Ultimate goal - 135 -138


    1st -146.5 this is from a Sunday of way to many drinks and tailgate food. No more of this allowed.
    3rd - 143.2 already lost a ton of the bloat, but have been high all week. I think due to a medication change
    10th - 142.9 I guess every little bit counts. I was hoping for a lower number though.
    17th - 140.9 back to exactly where I was at the end of Sept. Maybe I will see a new number here in a couple of days.
    24th - 144.6 still sore from a workout a couple of days ago and dinner out for my son's 20th bday!
    31st - 140.7 I lost an entire 2/10 of a pound this month. My monthly average is down 2.2 pounds so I am taking that as a win. One day my hard work is going to have to show up on the scale, lol. Onto November!

    Original starting weight (2014) - 229.5
    May 2018 - 134
    May 2019 Restart - 142.5
    September ending weight - 123.5
    Oct goal - 118
    Ultimate goal - 114

    10/01: 123.5 // 126.25
    10/07: 126 // 124.94
    10/14: 122 // 124.40
    10/21: 122.5 // 122.60
    10/28: 123 // 123.40
    10/31: 121.5 // 123.05

    Total loss: 2lbs

    This month could have been disastrous if I let my eating get out of control. However, I didn't. I had my days, but I kept going back to plan.

    Moving forward:
    1) Gym membership
    2) Eating more - my body needs it. Slower weight loss is still weight loss. I'm too hungry too often.

    •Lose 5 lbs in October 2019•

    June 2019 thru mid September 2019. Gains!/ Loss
    From 177 to 186. Began with stress, ended in adrenal fatigue.


    Original starting wgt: 253
    October starting weight: 183
    October goal: 180
    🍁Updating every day through October.

    •Monday Updates•📌
    📌September 30 - 183
    October 1 - 183
    10/2- 184.6 - fluid retention from exercise. My muscles are so weak! I'm working on it.
    10/3 - 182.4
    10/4 - 182
    10/5 - 182.6
    10/6 - 181.6
    📌10/7 - 183.6
    10/8 - 183.6
    10/9 - DNW
    10/10 - 181.4
    10/11 - 183.2 - my normal fluid gains
    10/12 - 181.6
    10/13 - 180.8
    📌10/14 - 181.8
    10/15 - 182.4 - Mmm, I think. Well, I'm going with that. It's typical. Need to get back to taking a photo of my weigh ins, because I don't usually record it on the MFP app immediately after weighing and don't always write it on paper.
    10/16 - 181.4
    10/17 - 181.2
    10/18 - 182.4 - no worries, some elimination is due😯
    10/19 - 180.8
    10/20 - 181.6
    📌10/21 - 181.6
    10/22 - 183 - starchy carbs
    10/23 - 181.2
    10/24 - 184 - No starchy carbs this time, just fluid retention in general.
    10/25 - 181.8
    10/26 - 181.6
    10/27 - 183.8 - just the usual fluid retention
    📌10/28 - 183 - Smh. Up and down the scale to end the month the same weight as I started. The good news is that this 183 is excess fluid and not October 1st excess fat. My body fat percentage decreased. My strength is improved, not to where it was this past Spring, but increasing. The scale weight will catch up eventually.
    10/29 - 182.8 - I made a lot of physical improvements; in muscle tone & strength, shoulder, knee and ankle becoming more stable (jumping jacks!) inches lost, bodyfat% coming back down, sleeping more soundly. Still in recovery, but I am managing my adrenal fatigue. I can wait for the scale to catch up. That is low on my concerns list right now.
    10/30 - 182
    10/31 - 181.8

    Gain / 1.2 lb Loss
