    Hello everyone. Sorry I’ve gotten off for awhile I’ve been very busy with our move, guests, and back to school and couldn’t really participate much. I will
    Be back soon 🤞🏻

    I got a message from Samantha.

    “Could you let everyone know that I will have them (the lose 5+ challenge) up and running again next month. Unfortunately I’ve been in hospital with a bad case of coronavirus, I got out of hospital thismorning and I’m still not feeling 100%, but I will be coming back”

    Thank you so much!!

    @mari_moulin, thank you for posting Samantha's situation. I was hoping that she was just busy with life in general. I'm so sorry to hear that she has been ill with CV19.

    After 2 years and 8 months of hard work, I met my ultimate weight loss goal on 7/31/2020.

    Overall Loss from Nov 2017 to July 2020: 38.2 lbs

    What's next? Maintenance, muscle gain and toning my stomach.

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017
    August Starting Weight: 109.2 lbs
    August Maintenance Goal: 110 lbs
    New BF Goal: 26%
    Height: 5 ft
    Age: 31

    Ultimate Goal: 110 lbs ✅
    Maintenance Goal: 108 to 113 lbs ✅

    Weigh-In Days: Monday and Friday

    August 3: 109.6 ... 29% BF
    August 7: 110.6 ... yesterday: 11k steps, 1651 cals in, 1701 cals burned, 106g protein, 192g carbs, 53g fat ... 1k calorie dinner 😬

    I've been eating at maintenance a little too well. MFP set maintenance (with no exercise) at 1400 cals which might be low but in either case, my calorie avg this week is 1638. I'll work on finding a good medium.
    I'm already noticing that I am eating one too many bad snacks after dinner. I need to tone it down. I'm very happy that I'm hitting personal protein goals of 100g or more.

    August 10: 110.4 ... It's all a work in progress... 29% BF
    August 14: 110.6 ... a bit confused by a loss... yesterday: 111.8 lbs, 5k steps, 1718 cals in, 1514 cals burned, 128g protein, 211g carbs, 50g fat

    August 17: 112.6 ... 30% BF ... not a bad BF but ouch. I allowed myself to eat chips and queso on Saturday but I've got to be careful.
    August 21: 112.4

    August 24: 114.8 ... 30% BF ... Yes, I went overboard last week with weekly cal avg of 1800 cals and not much exercise. I'm going to bring down my calorie avg this week! All of my hard work will not be in vain.
    August 28: 112 ... much better! Calorie avg from Mon to Thurs is 1530 and we have taken three 1 hour walks so far.

    August 31: 114

    I ended outside of maintenance but I'm trying to take this as a learning curve and not be too down in the dumps. I haven't experienced trying to stay within maintenance ever.

    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    June goal was 146.7 - Actual end weight 148.1
    July goal was 143.4 (realistically I would be happy with 147.1 since I normally only lose one pound per month)
    August goal was 142.9
    September goal 141.9
    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.
    July - Lost 3.4 pounds

    Monday August 31 - 145.2
    August 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
    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.
    Thursday September 03 - 143.7
    Friday September 04 - 142.3 - Wow, super happy to see this number after all of my diligence.
    Saturday September 05 - 143.1
    Sunday September 06 - 142.5 - 1.5 pounds away now from a 50 pound weight loss. It could take awhile, but I am definitely going to work at it.
    Monday September 07 - 143.1 - Hit those 142s twice, so hoping to return there tomorrow.
    Tuesday September 08 - 143.2 - On track, and sticking with it.
    Wednesday September 09 - 143.6 - Went off track a tiny bit last night, dusting off and will work out extra today.
    Thursday September 10 - 143.9 - Maybe I will see a drop tomorrow. Hope so.
