    You knew I'd be back even though I don't want to lose any more weight. Maintaining is just as hard, so I'll be reporting on that. And @kristen8000 -- it's fine if you don't get five pounds, it's about getting where you want to be and staying there. I hope to see you in maintenance soon!

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    September 30 starting weight - 139.4 (ten-day rolling average weight 141.4)
    October goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight).

    Total loss for October: It's not October yet!

    Yep, the staying there part hasn't worked in the past. I think this is the 4th time I've lost the last 15lbs in about 8 years...LOL You'd think I'd learn.

    Welcome to all the new members! This community is great - I have been a part of this challenge for over a year.

    @kristen8000 I am in the exact same boat. I've been at it for years. I've lost the weight successfully once before but this time around I have added the gym (thanks to my husband) for strength training and cardio and I love it!

    @mtaratoot Congrats on reaching your maintenance goal!

    This is my strength training for the month along with whatever cardio I can do as time allows. (5am workouts and the doc has said I need to strengthen my legs so I do not feel discomfort in my knees when I am on the elliptical. Why not attempt to strengthen my arms too? I will start with 1 set for arms since I have gone too far in the past by doing 3 sets.)

    Leg Day:
    Warm-Up
    Squats, 3x10
    Lunges, 3x10
    Glute Extension (I'm too short for Leg Curl), 3x10, 10lbs - I am trying this for the first time later this week so we'll see about 25 lbs
    Leg Extension, 3x10, 25 lbs
    Leg Press, 3x10, 10 lbs

    Arm Day:
    Warm-Up
    Lateral Raise, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Overhead Press, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Bench Dips, 1x10
    Extension, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Curl, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Flat Fly, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Kneeling Push Up, 1x10
    Lat Pulldown, , 1x10, 20 lbs

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147 lbs - November 2017
    October Starting Weight: 124.6 lbs
    October Goal: 121.6 lbs

    Height: 5ft

    Ultimate Goal: 115 lbs

    I've been in maintenance for about 18 months. If you think I haven't been gaining and losing even to the point of frustration, you weren't paying attention. I think it's par for the course, and now you've had some practice so it should be easier. I have no doubt I'll struggle again in the future, and I hope I have the right attitude because that's the tough part. I think I spent most of spring and summer maintaining, but at a weight just a few pounds higher than my goal. I thought about revising the goal, but just kept plugging away. I'd like to avoid the WILD fluctuations. That's the healthiest to maintain lean mass, so let's do it!

    61 years old; 5'2"
    Original starting weight - 158.5 (12/30/2018)

    I have found Monday (M), Wednesday (W), Friday (F) weigh-in accountability works best for me. I've pinned the weekly weigh-in days for the challenge.

    October Loss ~

    Thoughts: Here we go! As much as I believe in BIG goals, and would love to see a 5lb drop in a month, the weight is simply not coming off at that rate. I'm leaving the 5lb goal there for motivation, but I've added an intermediate goal of 2lbs. That is absolutely doable with consistency and discipline. Good luck everyone!

    October Game Plan & Goals: (Use stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Move to 2-week meal plans - Need to start writing them down
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • No calorie intake before 11am, edging towards noon for a 16:8 IF
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 2836 ⬇
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 32 ⬆
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day

    Strength Training:
    Squats, lunges, push-ups (elevated), arm circles, side bends, & tricep lifts. Adding planks and transitioning regular push-ups to scapula push-ups.
    • 10/1-4 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/5-8 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/9-12 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/13-16 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/17-20 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/21-24 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/25-28 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/29-31 - 50, 50, 50, Rest 11/1
