    Total loss for August + 1.5 LBS

    This has been the worst weekend ever. We got some very bad news from my I laws Saturday evening.

    My husbands brother and our twin nieces died in a plane crash Saturday afternoon. They were on a small tourist plane. The girls had won a plane ride in their club and it alL went horribly wrong. There is an investigation going on. My in-laws are devastated and my husband and I are in shock. My boys are being strong but it’s been hard on them as well. Please keep us in your thoughts.

    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.
    Friday September 11 - 142.0 - Yahoo for the scale reading, but a terrible day historically. I was probably around 165 pounds back then before I started packing on the menopause pounds. I couldn't carry 165 these days as my body weight shifted around with age.
    Saturday September 12 - 142.0 - I usually get more workouts/activity over the weekends, hoping to be able to sustain this number.
    Sunday September 13 - 142.9 - I will get back to that number from the last couple of days. Hard work and determination : - )
    Monday September 14 - 142.7 - I was heavier than that at 5am when I got up, so...I went back to bed until 7 lol.

    @mari_moulin I am so sorry to read your post today! Such sad news. My friend too just lost an aunt and uncle in a small plane crash in Iowa. To lose so many family members at one time is just too much to comprehend. I am so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    @dawnbgethealthy

    She does this challenge a few times a year and you sign up for 12 weeks. I think her next one will be in January. You can do a $20 plan that is just the ebook and workouts, $35 plan that is ebook, workouts, and a shirt, or $100 that is ebook, workout, shirt, and nutritionist information. I did the $35 so I don't know what all is included in the nutritionist plan.

    The strength workouts are about 30 minutes a day and she recommends getting cardio in as well.

    I hope this helped!
