    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    June goal was 146.7 - Actual end weight 148.1
    July goal 143.4 (realistically I would be happy with 147.1 since I normally only lose one pound per month)
    Ultimate goal: 112-115 - Age 59, height 5'2"

    Wednesday July 01 - 148.4 - Up just a titch from June EW, but really pleased to be starting the month in the 140s for the first time.

    Friday July 31 - 145.0 - The long weekend has started here, going to try my best to not derail.

    Monday August 31 - 145.2

    Kind of a bust of a month, gained 0.2 from last month.

    It would be great if we had a new month to post in for September. If not we can still keep posting here on the July thread.

    Okay, parking here on the July thread again.

    Tuesday September 01 - 144.9 - Staying the course and trying to be patient

    So so close to the one hundreds!!! I started the Nita Strauss Body Shred Challenge today. It is a 12 week workout program. I also am starting my half marathon buildup training program. We will see what happens. :)

    I will still try to stay low carb most of the time. Have a great September all!!

    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

    Tuesday September 01 - 144.9 - Staying the course and trying to be patient
    Wednesday September 02 - 143.8 - 18 days until my 60th birthday - my goal was to be 130 which obviously won't be happening. MFP has been saying "137 in 5 weeks" since January of this year. Yesterday it said "133 in 5 weeks". 2 pounds in 18 days might be realistic, I am a very slow weight loser. Yes, I do plan to be indulgent over my birthday getaway, but not out of control indulgent after all of this hard work.

    @dawnbgethealthy A couple friends and I wrote down the number MFP told us a couple weeks ago. We've been tracking ever since. Looking forward to getting to that 5 week mark to see if we're even close. The good news is....it got me tracking again! :)
    Enjoy your birthday celebration/celebrationS! Lemme guess...ribs?! :)

    Haha, I'm not sure what I will be eating on my actual birthday, I will be away. You are right though, I do eat ribs once per month or so, so fattening!

    That number by MFP - if you eat/workout the same every day as you did today you will weigh...
    I will be interested if it works out for you, it doesn't for me usually : - )

    Glad that you are tracking again! I lost weight once before, stopped tracking and measuring, thinking that I knew approximately. I gained 40 pounds and with tracking have managed to get that back off. I will always have to track, not being an ectomorph. I am okay with that, it keeps me focused on my weight and nutrients.

    @dawnbgethealthy Nice job! Good for you! You'll be in the next decade soon!
    Have a great weekend all!

    I am down two from last Friday to 170.2. Dang that POINT 2. I SO wanted the next decade. I'm gunnin' for you! Next week I'll hit it. I'm starting a new exercise video program with a friend. 21 days of workouts. Not looking forward to it. They look really hard and she's 20 years younger than me. Ha! I want the results though so I'm in!

    Ugh!! I've been under calories and under 20 net carbs ALL week and i GAINED!!! So frustrating. I started a new workout challenge so I am hoping this is just water retention.
  • rmwb529rmwb529 Member, Premium Posts: 83 Member Member, Premium Posts: 83 Member
    @lizziebtothec stick with it. You're doing all the right stuff. What workout are you doing to do?
    I'm going to be trying the BB MBF for 21 days. I watched a sample today. Looks tough. I'm tougher. Ha!
    Keep at it. My starting weight was 228 back in the day. Kept it off for the most part. These pesky last ones I take off and put back on will be the death of me.
    Hang in there! Have a great long weekend!
  • dawnbgethealthydawnbgethealthy Member Posts: 3,478 Member Member Posts: 3,478 Member
    BBMBF - Beach Body ??? What does the MBF stand for? Melt Body Fat?
    They say after 21 days that things become a habit @rmwb529

    I am a workout-er. I need it for sanity, clarity, weight loss, joint lubrication, escapism and a myriad of other things.

    I look forward to hearing how it goes. Great that you have a friend to do it with, that is extra motivation. Lovely to add it to the tracker also!
