    Joining in late. 10/16/19. -- I’ve kinda been tracking. Will do daily weigh ins for this, if possible.

    Starting at: 160 lbs
    10/16/19 Current at: 157.4 lbs
    October goal: 156 lbs
    Ultimate goal: 98 lbs, but that maybe too low. Main goal is to be healthier.

    10-1
    10-2 156 lbs
    10-3
    10-4
    10-5 158.8
    10-6 158.8
    10-7
    10-8
    10-9
    10-10
    10-11
    10-12
    10-13 157.2
    10-14
    10-15
    10-16 157.4
    10-17 157.4 did pretty darn good with food
    10-18 157.4 did even better with food
    10/19 158.2 Hmmm...
    Had to take Dad to ER. Couldn't follow menu plan. Pretty sure I screwed up, but not too much. Will do better, tomorrow. He was admitted. So far, I haven't snacked.
    10/20
    10/21
    10/22
    10/23 157.4 yay. Dad still in hospital. Only snacked 1 day. Too large of meals (lunch & dinners). Have done lots more walking.
    10/24
    10/25 157.4 I’m happy that it’s not going up. Walked a lot. Ambulance took Dad back to Assisted Living Memory Care. Dad had to have a Foley Catheter put in the hospital. I hate this! Last 2 days very stressful at work. Someone was let go on the spot today. Very sad. And, of course my boss (owner) made me do most the dirty work. She was sweet but made lots of mistakes.
    10/26 157.4
    10/27 159.2 it’s my bday bday & now i almost wish that I hadn’t weighed. Yesterday was not a good food day, but not as bad as I’ve been in my past. I’ve been dehydrated so need to drink at least minimum water. For me. My goal looks way off now. I’d have to lose 3.2 lbs in 4 days. Lol.
    10/28 159.2
    10/29 158 yay!
    10/30

    Starting Weight: 183.9
    (post giving birth in June)
    Starting weight this month: 168.1
    Goal weight this month: 165.5
    (It's going to be a hard month to diet, so I want to be realistic and set myself up for success.)
    Target goal weight: 140

    July loss: +1
    August loss: -2.5
    September loss: -3.5

    October 1
    October 2: 168.3 :) considering I ate a lot and didn't record for the last two days
    October 3: 168.3
    October 4: 166.5 ;) wow!
    October 5
    October 6: was 168 something. I ate a lot on Saturday the 5th. But I was still happy, because a few weeks ago I would have been 171 after a day like that.
    I ate better today. Better luck tomorrow! :)
    October 7: 168.3 gotta get back down...
    October 8: 166.8 :)
    October 9:
    October 10: 166.0 ;) (kind of artificial. Didn't really eat much yesterday.)
    October 11: 166.4
    October 12-15: didn't weigh in. Ate a lot, so expecting a gain. Hoping it will be under 168.5. ;-/
    October 16: 168.3
    October 17: 166.8 (I am lucky. I haven't been logging since last Friday. I HAVE to get back at logging my food!!!)
    October 18: 167.0 (? I logged and stayed under limits. I've got to keep it up and it sure the numbers will go back down a bit.)
    October 19-23: didn't weigh
    October 24: 168.9 OH NO! I let myself go the last week. HELP! Going to get back to good habits. Drinking water now...
    October 25-26: didn't weigh
    October 27: 167.7 today I was good (finally!!!) and stayed within my calorie limits. It's so hard to rein myself back in after eating cookies and cookies and cookies... :( but I have to remind myself that I want to be thinner!
    October 28: 166.5 (ate within my limits yesterday, and drank a lot of water.)
    October 29: 166.3 (was very careful yesterday- drank water and stayed under calorie limit.)
    October 30: 165.4 :) met my goal! (Hope to keep it.)
    October 31:164.4
    Yay!!

    May lost 8 lbs
    June lost 1.6 lbs
    July lost 2 lbs
    August lost 4.2 lbs
    September lost 6.6 lbs
    October lost 2.4 lbs

    Starting weight: 234
    October goal: 207
    Goal weight: 180, then reevaluate.

    1 Oct - 211.6
    2 Oct - 212
    3 Oct - 212 (My TDEE numbers are frustrating me so much. I have a very sedentary desk job, but I work out everyday, so I'm getting SOME activity in. And yet, my "maintenance" calories seem to be less than 10x my body weight, which seems wrong. Or maybe I'm just old!)
    4 Oct - 211.6 (Tomorrow should be interesting. I had a normal breakfast, pigged out on sushi for lunch, but MFP doesn't seem to think it was too bad, and am having dinner out tonight. I'm expecting tomorrow's numbers to be GARBAGE, but fingers crossed)
    5 Oct - 212.8 (Yep...there it is. It was actually 215 at my normal weighing time, but I got stubborn and stayed in bed and didn't eat until it got down to a more reasonable number!)
    6 Oct - 211.8
    7 Oct - 211.8 (Discipline is the word for today. I'm ready for a new "first 3 digits" number.)
    8 Oct - 211 (I feel this may be an outlier; I hit my calorie limit EARLY yesterday...like 5pm. So technically I'd been fasting for 14 hours prior to this weigh-in).
    9 Oct - 210.2
    10 Oct - 210.6 (Going to a conference tonight. Catered dinner, drinks, networking. A little scared for tomorrow).
    11 Oct - 210.6 (Ate beforehand, so I behaved at the conference. This is as good as I could ask for)
    12 Oct - 209.6 (Great news, but I'm going to an orchard tomorrow. Hopefully cider and donuts won't hit me too hard)
    13 Oct - 212.6 (OUCH. This was just like on the 5th, where it was 215 when I woke up, so I stubbornly refused to eat until it got back to a normal number. And even this one hurt. Last time it took me 3 days to undo that damage. And it wasn't even that bad, all things considered....2 cups of cider, 5 donut holes, and a small pumpkin loaf. 5.5 pounds, really?)
    14 Oct - 211.8
    15 Oct - 211.4 (Just a reminder of how much cheat meals hurt my progress. Still trying to undo the damage from the 12th)
    16 Oct - 211.2
    17 Oct - 210.6
    18 Oct - 210.6
    19 Oct - 213.2 (I had a friend visit this weekend. Didn't even get crazy....one beer, some pizza. It really frustrates me how much damage ONE meal can do...and the rest of the weekend isn't going to be much better!)
    20 Oct - 213.6
    21 Oct - 213.8 (At this point, I think I'll just be happy to lose anything this month. Hopefully a good chunk of this is water/bloat, but we'll see)
    22 Oct - 212.4
    23 Oct - 211.4 (I've been pretty hardcore about my calories these last couple days...I'm determined to show some sort of progress this month.)
    24 Oct - 211.6 (It was only .2 lbs, but this one REALLY stung. I was actually WELL under for calories yesterday, and normally I'm pretty responsive to caloric intake...if I go over a little, I go up a little, if I stay under a lot, I go down a lot. I can't explain this one other than "random body things", but after how hungry I was yesterday, this hurt.)
    25 Oct - 211
    26 Oct - 210.8
    27 Oct - 209.8 (nice!)
    28 Oct - 211.6 (aww)
    29 Oct - 210 (2-day hike coming, let's go!)
    30 Oct - 209.4
    31 Oct - 209.2

    Goal missed, but 3 cheat meals didn't do me any favors. Some near-term goals include:

    200 by end of the year.
    20% bf (I'm at 22.5 now).
    Fitting into "that" pair of jeans.

    Starting weight 178
    Start weight this month 140.9
    Goal weight this month 138.5
    Target goal weight 135

    May gained: 1.1 pounds (149.3)
    June lost: 3.4 pounds (145.9)
    July lost: 2.2 pounds (143.7)
    August lost: 0.1 pounds (143.6) maintained
    September lost: 2.7 pds (140.9)

    We can do this


    29 Sept - 140.9
    30 Sept - 145.9 (Monday not a real number)

    1 Oct - 146.5 I have no clue. Maybe water, maybe my medication change. Who knows. Hopefully it will be back down soon.
    2 Oct - 143.9 way better. Hopefully the other 3 pounds are gone in the next couple of days
    3 Oct - 143.2 would have been lower, but ate pizza last night and a couple of wings.
    4 Oct - 142.0 did really well yesterday and should stay on track for today
    5 Oct - 141.5 ok with this. Hoping not to go up to much this weekend
    6 Oct - 141.5 nice!
    7 Oct - 143.2 one of my lowest Monday’s so far.
    8 Oct - 144.9 not bad for a 3 day weekend. Movie yesterday and didn't eat any popcorn,but did some snacking after we got home.
    9 Oct - 143.6
    10 Oct - 142.9 Ate pizza last night and a large salad. Stayed under calories. Got a flu shot yesterday and sore
    11 Oct - 141.4 I like to see that. Maybe I can hold on to that through the weekend.
    12 Oct - 142.3 beer last night, but food was good. Fingers crossed for today
    13 Oct - 143.6 This is the rest of Friday night showing up
    14 Oct - 142.8 This is amazing for a Monday morning weigh-in.
    15 Oct - 142.3 Some stomach issues, but was hoping for a lower weight this morning. Half way through the month and have made 0 progress
    16 Oct - 140.9 Back down to my lowest last month. Hopefully I can hold onto it this time and see a new low!
    17 Oct - 140.9
    18 Oct - 141.5 uuugghhh
    19 Oct - 141.5
    20 Oct - 143.9 ate 3 restaurant meals yesterday on our scenic drive to see the leaves changing. Worth the sodium.
    21 Oct - 144.6 uuugghh back to work. 10 days left of the month and have made zero progress!
    22 Oct - 144.6 I worked out and am sore. 9 days left to make some kind of progress
    23 Oct - 143.9 I don't see myself breaking into the decade this month. Pretty much a maintaining month so far.
    24 Oct - 144.6
    25 Oct - 143.9
    26 Oct - 142.3 no alcohol on Friday has helped with this.
    27 Oct - 139.7 did a 24 hour fast will go up tomorrow
    28 Oct - 142.3 Why? I expected some uptick, but not this much. Did not even have a drink with football yesterday
    29 Oct - 142.3 annoyed
    30 Oct - 140.7 I have officially lost 2/10 of a pound this month, lol. 1 more day
    31 Oct - 140.7 same on to the next one!

    Don't beat yourself up. That's 4.3lbs you won't have to lose again. You're nearer your goal then when you started the month.

    Starting weight 166.6
    Start weight this month 162.4
    Goal weight this month 157
    Target goal weight 140

    Sept lost 4.8 lbs

    1 Oct - 162.4 - I don’t get why I am stuck between 161.8 and 162.4 lbs... 🙄
    2 Oct - 162.8 lbs - I kind of asked for it, didn’t I? Lol! I’m pretty bloated and gross feeling so I figure it will go away at some point.
    3 Oct - 161.6 lbs
    4 Oct - 161.4 lbs - we’re creeping down... 😂
    5 Oct - 161.0 lbs - still creeping...
    6 Oct - 161.4 lbs - ugh. That’s all I have to say.
    7 Oct - 162.0 lbs - and I’m feeling awful today.
    8 Oct - I didn’t have the heart to weigh in today.
    9 Oct - 161.0 lbs :) Still feeling kind of crappy, but I'm ok with this weigh-in today
    10 Oct - 161.2 lbs - We are just playing a game recently! How many days can I stay stuck between 161 and 162? Lol! I’m actually ok with this because yesterday sucked. My youngest son got a concussion and we were in the hospital all night last night and dinner consisted of a pizza I grabbed on the way home at 10 and absolutely no workout. All in all, I’m ok with that number today.
    11 Oct - 160.2 lbs
    12 Oct - 161.4 lbs
    13 Oct - 160.8 lbs - I’m in a rut at the moment. I kind of binged on sweets the other day and got back in the habit. (No soda tho, so I haven’t totally sabotage myself.) Plus, I have started studying for a 3 part exam and haven’t been able to dedicate as much time to exercise as I would have liked. I’m going to do my best, but passing these exams is crucial.
    14 Oct - 161.8 lbs
    15 Oct - 161.6 lbs
    16 Oct - 161.2 lbs - I am struggling a little bit this month. I'm not sure why, but I am. I will get through it though.
    17 Oct -
    18 Oct -
    19 Oct -
    20 Oct - 161.6 lbs
    21 Oct - No weigh in, running late
    22 Oct - 163.2 lbs - TOM started which is always random and explains a lot. Definitely not where I want to be, but I will get back on track and try to end the month strong!
    23 Oct - 162.2 lbs - I hate tom bloat. I feel so gross! Lol! Nice to see that the 163 didn’t stick though after a week off. I was kind of worried that I went the wrong direction!
    24 Oct - 160.6 lbs - can I get to the 150’s ever or will I bounce back again just for giggles? Stay tuned to find out! 😂
    25 Oct - 160.0 lbs
    26 Oct - 160.0 lbs
    27 Oct - 160.2 lbs - I think the name of the game is to maintain this month? Oy vey.
    28 Oct - 160.0 lbs
    29 Oct - 159.6 lbs
    30 Oct - 160.2 lbs
    31 Oct - 159.8 lbs - so I fell short of the goal, but I still lost 2.6 lbs, so I shouldn’t complain. Slow and steady wins the race, right?
    See you all next month! Lol!

    Joining in late. 10/16/19. -- I’ve kinda been tracking. Will do daily weigh ins for this, if possible.

    Starting at: 160 lbs
    10/16/19 Current at: 157.4 lbs
    October goal: 156 lbs
    Ultimate goal: 98 lbs, but that maybe too low. Main goal is to be healthier.

    Sadly opposite of losing.
    October +4 lbs. (160)

    10-1
    10-2 156 lbs
    10-3
    10-4
    10-5 158.8
    10-6 158.8
    10-7
    10-8
    10-9
    10-10
    10-11
    10-12
    10-13 157.2
    10-14
    10-15
    10-16 157.4
    10-17 157.4 did pretty darn good with food
    10-18 157.4 did even better with food
    10/19 158.2 Hmmm...
    Had to take Dad to ER. Couldn't follow menu plan. Pretty sure I screwed up, but not too much. Will do better, tomorrow. He was admitted. So far, I haven't snacked.
    10/20
    10/21
    10/22
    10/23 157.4 yay. Dad still in hospital. Only snacked 1 day. Too large of meals (lunch & dinners). Have done lots more walking.
    10/24
    10/25 157.4 I’m happy that it’s not going up. Walked a lot. Ambulance took Dad back to Assisted Living Memory Care. Dad had to have a Foley Catheter put in the hospital. I hate this! Last 2 days very stressful at work. Someone was let go on the spot today. Very sad. And, of course my boss (owner) made me do most the dirty work. She was sweet but made lots of mistakes.
    10/26 157.4
    10/27 159.2 it’s my bday bday & now i almost wish that I hadn’t weighed. Yesterday was not a good food day, but not as bad as I’ve been in my past. I’ve been dehydrated so need to drink at least minimum water. For me. My goal looks way off now. I’d have to lose 3.2 lbs in 4 days. Lol.
    10/28 159.2
    10/29 158 yay!
    10/30 159.2
    10/31 160
    This is so embarrassing, but I will try again. Gained a whopping 4 lbs. I’m at about my highest weight now.

    Oops counted from my goal weight for October. I still had embarrassing gain, but not 4 lbs. Was a gain of 2.6 lbs.
  • Hi all,

    I've been lurking on MFP for quite a while but have never participated so this is my first challenge! Looking forward to jump-starting my weight loss with your help! I'm also hoping to overcome my love affair with potato chips this month! :)

    Starting weight 208.8 lbs
    Start weight this month 208.8 lbs
    Goal weight this month 200.8 lbs
    Target goal weight 165lbs



    We can do this!

    1 Oct - 208.8 So it begins! (GO TEAM!)
    2 Oct - 205.2 Ah, the joys of the beginning! (and the end of my TOM) Woot - I'll take it :)
    3 Oct - 204.6 Woot! Headed in the right direction! Packing lunches in the evening seems to be helping. A little apprehensive about the weekend (we'll be out of town) since that is usually when I sabotage my progress. Hmm
    4 Oct - 204.2 Good morning! Starting to level out, I think. This is as focused as I've been in a very long time so I am so proud that I've weighed, tracked, and logged for 4 days in a row! :) Today, I will drink water like it's my job!
    5 Oct -203.8 Woot! Looking good!
    6 Oct -205.2
    7 Oct -206.8
    8 Oct -208.2 Oh dear. My first of three weekends out of town this month was a huge challenge! This week I'll be going back to basics: packing lunch, drinking water, 30 mins of exercise. Slow and steady! :)
    9 Oct -207.0 Back to tracking and I drank a TON of water yesterday. Woot! Progress (even if it is just transtional...) :)
    10 Oct -206.8 Drank water yesterday but let myself get a little too hungry and scarfed down too much dinner. Today I brought adequate snacks to work and will do my level best to eat them. Onward!
    11 Oct - 207.2 Well, rats - wrong direction. Minor setback! Went over my calorie budget yesterday and I had ham roast for both dinner and lunch...sodium too high, maybe? Still, happy with what I’ve been doing and ready to continue learning to make good choices long term.
    12 Oct -207.6 *wince* I’ll keep trying.
    13 Oct -206.0 Yay! Happy with that!
    14 Oct -205.2 Hmmm. I’m happy with but suspicious of these weekend numbers. I had a few drinks yesterday and am wondering if I’m simply dehydrated. Back to regularly scheduled programming this week so we’ll see. I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing and give healthy choices a real shot for once! Nice to see numbers going the right way, either way :)
    15 Oct -205.2 So far so good :)
    16 Oct - 202.8 What the WHAT?! We'll see if I can keep the momentum! (yesterday was an unusually low calorie day due to being busy...I'll keep doing what I'm doing!
    17 Oct -200.8 :) Well, this feels good but I fully suspect that it might be due to having another unusually low calorie day yesterday from just being busy. I have to remind myself that it's okay to bounce around a bit and when I go above this number that it's not a failure.
    18 Oct -200.8
    19 Oct -200.0 So close to onederland! Today was my son’s fifth birthday party! So, while I tried to limit some of the treats I definitely did not have a particularly healthy day. Back on the horse tomorrow!
    20 Oct -203.0 Well, that is disappointing but not at all unexpected. Doing way better today and think I have things handled with regard to residual treats from the party! We’ll see what tomorrow looks like. 😊
    21 Oct -202.2 tom Good day, though. :)
    22 Oct -200.8 I'm hoping to make some official (read: sustainable) progress below this number this week! Happy to see it again, though. :)
    23 Oct -198.2 Onederland!
    24 Oct -197.8
    25 Oct -197.8
    26 Oct -out of town
    27 Oct -out of town
    28 Oct -197.4 This was kind of a nail biter! I really tried to keep things under control when I was gone but sometimes I have better luck than others and I didn’t track so it was hard to tell. So happy to see a loss!
    29 Oct -197.2 progress is progress!
    30 Oct -195.6 I am utterly delighted! Things are going well! Feeling great! 😁
    31 Oct -195.2 I made my goal and am ready to make a new one!!! Thank you all for your support! It helps so much to have this group!

    Total loss for October: 4.3lbs UGH! Not happy but only myself to blame.

    Don't beat yourself up. That's 4.3lbs you won't have to lose again. You're nearer your goal then when you started the month.

    Thank you!! I needed that <3
