    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191

    June goal was 146.7 - Actual end weight 148.1
    July goal was 143.4 - Actual EW 145.0
    August goal was 142.9 - Actual EW 145.2 - Ouch
    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.
    Tuesday September 15 - 142.4 - Halfway through the month now. going to try to lose a couple of more ounces before going away on holiday.
    Wednesday September 16 - 142.3 - Going to indulge on my birthday vacation for a week, but not go crazy. Not much of a cushion, hope to bring it down another ounce before leaving tomorrow.
    Thursday September 17 - 141.7 - Good number before leaving for my trip. I will get a work out in before sitting in my car.

    Wow @Connie7355
    You have lost in half a month what normally takes me 5 months to do! Congrats on the great loss.
    What system are you using?
    @dawnbgethealthy
    I started trying IF and so far it’s working. Or it could be that I finally quit eating snacks every night 😀. I got off the program this winter and have had a lot of trouble getting back with it. I’m never hungry in the morning so now I’m just eating lunch and dinner. Nothing after 8 pm and usually nothing after 7 pm. Usually i‘m way under my calorie goal. I’m not a fast loser either. When you’re almost 65 years old it sure does slow down!! Great job on bringing your scale on vacation with you!! Hope you are having a great time!!

    It makes sense to not eat when you are not hungry. It is working for you!
    I would say that I don't exactly do IF. I was eating berries/cherries in the morning with my coffee and then I am on the go all day working in the field and don't eat again until the evening. Good on you for stopping eating at night. That is the only time that I really feel like eating. I definitely eat more calories in snacks than in anything else, but I measure or count (as in Pringles) them now.
    Berry season is now over. Yesterday and today I had a half of a Dragon Fruit to start my metabolism for the day.
    Once in awhile on the weekends I have lunch. I might today because there are a few nice restaurants in the area where lunch is about half the price of dinner.

    Yes, I agree that it gets harder to lose weight past a certain age.
    For me it has become easier after all of that menopause-y stuff was over. Very slow, but do-able without the hormones flying all over the place.

    Really glad that you have found something that is working for you. Our bodies are all different, and what works for one might not work for another.
    I don't lose weight at all just on 1200 (aprox) calories per day, I find that I have to have enough of a deficit from working out/activity to equal 500 calories in the Green on the tracker in order to lose anything.
    Being at an ideal weight is also a different goal past a certain age, we want to be healthy and take pressure off of our joints. Looking better is just a bonus.

    You are narrowing in on your UGW!!! Cheering you on.
