    🐈‍⬛ 🎃 October Daily Log & Weigh in Challenge 🎃🐈‍⬛

    Highest Weight: 234
    October 1st Weight: 211.2
    Current weight: 209.8

    October Weight lost so far: 1.4 pounds 🪄❤️
    Goal: 2 pounds

    ⭐️October 1… 211.2… up a pound from
    yesterday’s month end low, but I had a feeling it would rebound a bit.
    🎃Happy October 1st!🐈‍⬛
    ✔️Logged
    ✔️Weighed in
    ✔️9,585 steps from cutting the grass and cleaning up the garden. I should have taken before and after pictures.
    ✔️Ate well over calories. The Snacky Stress monster is back! October is a crazy month of college applications, FASFA, & her last SAT test.

    ⭐️October 2…211.6…I was stress eating yesterday for my daughter, but today I’m over it! I’ll put my nervous energy to good use and dance while she takes her SAT this morning, and I’ll clean up her room and bathroom…which will make me feel better! HAPPY SATURDAY!

    ✔️I agree! Weekends are hard… ate well over my calories… felt so over stuffed when I went to bed… thought for sure that the scale would read higher, but it will catch up with me. ⭐️October 3…210.9…👍
    ✔️Logged
    ✔️Weighed in
    ✔️6,072 steps… under my 7,000 step goal
    ✔️ATE UNDER CALORIES! This is day 1 of my under calorie streak! I can feel it!

    ⭐️October 4…211.4…there is the correction from Friday night’s Jimmy John’s sub. I have to learn to put half of it away in the refrigerator for the next days lunch or dinner instead of eating ALL of it in 1 sitting. Self discipline!

    ✔️Ate over my calories…I have to learn to savor and save. If I’m going to eat the brownie, I can portion it better and save some for later. With treats I’m more like a squirrel 🐿 that jams all of the nuts 🥜 in its mouth. 🤣

    ⭐️October 5…212.6… the backslide has begun… and I’m going to stop it right now! It’s time to dance with Gina B on UTube and get my day moving on the right foot. 💃🏻

    ✔️Weighed in
    ✔️9125 steps from Day 5 10 minute walking workout with Gina B and walking Roxie for 15 minutes.
    ✔️Ate under my calories! Only ate 1/2 a brownie today and said no to the large chocolate bar I was craving. Hope the scale is kind.

    ⭐️October 6… 212.1… whew! Moving downward again. Looking forward to seeing the 211’s and the 210’s soon.
    ✔️Logged
    ✔️Weighed in
    ✔️13,367 steps.. repeat Gina B walk and Roxie walk… and some yard work.
    ✔️Was having an “at calorie goal” day, but overate chips in the evening.

    ⭐️October 7…212.2…glad I didn’t go up much after yesterday. Already on a good start with exercise… just need to keep the calories in check. Today is a clean up house day, then back to work tomorrow. Happy Thursday!
    ✔️Logged
    ✔️Weighed in
    ✔️13339 steps
    ✔️Gave into snacking on chips… again. Time to stop the self sabotage and only eat chips with a meal, because they are not satisfying as a snack… you know this, and you’ve got this , Jill.

    ⭐️October 8… 212.2 holding steady, but when I get snacking back under control it will move downward. I’m worth it, so I have to stop giving in to overeating. I can conquer 2.2 pounds and get into the 210’s by the end of October.

    Jill - you're so good with getting those steps in
    @adc - are you wearing one of those boots for the plantar fascitis? trying to sleep with that was a thumbs down.

    went for labwork on sat and triglycerides are out of range, more reason to do this

    I'd love to join this party! I've struggled with my weight my whole life, but when I log, I lose--it's as simple (and as hard) as that. My problem is with consistency. I lost 30 lbs last year but nothing this year, and I've got 30 to go before getting out of the obese zone. Here's wishing us all good health.

    total weight loss so far 41.2
    total october weight loss 2.6 pound
    Hope to lose in october 8 pounds
    Goal weight for 10/31/21 165.4

    I've been packing to move, so that's contributed to my weight loss stall. Carrying tons of heavy boxes, which I hope has built muscle, and burning tons of calories, which should have created a large fat loss. But I've also been eating a bit more, trying not to get sick during a stressful time, and not able to eat my usual diet plan. I suspect some of this is water weight due to muscle soreness. And I haven't moved house yet, so the disruption will continue. I'm just glad I'm still losing during this time and not gaining. I may not meet my october goal, even if my body settles down, but I'm 2/3s of the way to my weight goal, so I'm still pretty happy.

    Goal weight for 10/31/21 169

    I've revised my october weight loss goal, due to packing to move - been eating more due to all the exercise. Hope my weight loss will improve once my body settles down, if it is true that sore muscles retain water weight, then the scale should go down once that is dropped. don't know, Would be nice if my weight loss is more than the scale is showing, but I'll take the 3 pounds and hope to be in the 160s by the end of october.

    👻October 25…211.2… the birthday get-togethers for my daughter are now over. She had lots of fun, and she’s now 17.🎈🎉❤️

    As for me, the sweet and salty food fest is over. No more mindless grazing for me.

    I am at a 0 pound loss for the month… but I have 6 more days to go.

    Hi everyone. I'd like to join your group. I'm 63, 5'2", 240 pounds. My goal is somewhere around 140ish. My first mini goal is to get to 230. Figure it'd be easier to do small goals then look at the big goal of 100 lbs.

    Welcome to the group! I agree with tiered goals… 5 pounds… 10 pounds… baby steps along the way. ⭐️
