    @mari_moulin I don't know how you're even upright let alone weighing in. You're amazing! I'm so glad your in-laws have you, your husband and kids. Hang in there!

    @dawnbgethealthy Wow! Happy birthday to you! If you care to share...where are you on holiday? Sounds fantastic!

    Thanks for asking : - )
    I am in the Crowsnest Pass (Alberta), hiking every day, mostly around mountain lakes. So beautiful and relaxing.

    Here are a few of them : - )

    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 60, 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.



    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.
    Friday September 18 - 142.3 - Happy with this number. Yup, I brought my scale with me. Very beautiful here.
    Saturday September 19 - 141.6 - Ah, less stress more hiking I guess. I don't have cooking facilities in my motel, so I am not eating my usual chicken with fresh veggies from my garden. I do have a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Most importantly, I have a Jacuzzi in the living room overlooking the mountains : - )
    Sunday September 20 - 141.0 - Yippee Yahoo!!! Hit my 50 pound weight loss milestone right on the morning of my milestone 60th birthday :):):):)
    Monday September 21 - 142.3 - I kind of expect for it to go up higher still. Hiking lots, but also no kitchen while away so food choices are not the best.
    Tuesday September 22 - 142.9 - Burned way too many calories yesterday when I got lost on mountain trails. My body might have been gripping on to fat in fear lol. I expect my weight to go back down when that catches up in a few days. 8 days left in the month, wanting to finish strong. This weight number would have me at a 2 pound loss for the month, which I am always pleased with if I can attain it.

    I honestly don’t know how I’m still checking in. I think it takes my mind off it all even if for a couple of minutes. This has been so hard and overwhelming. I’ve been travelling Back and forth to and from Bordeaux since last week. My kids have been staying at friends houses but I can’t stay away too long as my youngest needs me. I fly back tomorrow morning To Bordeaux and come back Friday night again. I’m exhausted. I feel absolutely drained. My brother in-laws funeral is this Thursday and my nieces is yet to be set as they have yet to identify their Little bodies. As they were twins it’s harder to know which is which. They need proper identification in order to make accurate death certificates. And we need death certificates to have the cremation and funeral.


    @mari_moulin It's just an incredibly tragic nightmare. I am so sorry for all the losses and for all that the family is going through. My heartfelt prayers continue for you and your family.

    No, it is not near Banff. I used to live around that area though, very very busy.
    Crowsnest Pass is about 2 hours north of Eureka Montana.

    Hopefully the borders open up someday for your bucket list : - )

    I don't know where you are located. Somewhere in the USA I am guessing.
