    Hi : - )
    I am Dawn, 60, 5'2"
    MFP Start weight October 28.18 191 pounds
    UGW - 112-118

    I was on another monthly challenge for a couple of years, but it hasn't been updated since July, so I was looking for another. Thank you for creating this @cachoey
    I weigh daily, it keeps me accountable.

    Week 1
    10/1 -
    10/2 - 143.5
    10/3 - 143.5
    10/4 - 143.5 - I normally fluctuate like crazy, so this staying at the same weight for 3 days is new to me.
    10/5 - 143.1 - Good to see a slight drop. I was 141.0 in September, so trying to get back to that...and beyond.
    10/6 - 142.1 - Getting back down to September's weight, working on it!
    10/7 - 141.5 - I don't really want to count this first week as a weight loss, since I am still up (slightly) from September. Gaining weight and then losing that same weight is not weight loss to me. Onward : - )
    Week 2
    10/8 - 139.6 - New low for me, yay!
    10/9 - 141.3 - I am fine with this number. I hope to touch the 130s again this month : - )
    10/10 - 142.3 - I had hoped for a lower number as I go into 3 days of a feeding frenzy of Canadian Thanksgiving. I am particularly fond of gravy and stuffing. I will still be working out.
    10/11 - 142.6 - No big gain yet from seasonal foods
    10/12 - 143.0 - One more thanksgiving meal tonight
    10/13
    10/14
    Week 3
    10/15 - 143.6 - Time to get serious and bring this number down.
    10/16 - 142.1 - I actually went back to bed this morning and weighed 141.2 when I woke up, but I will stay with the former number because it was at a time when I normally get up.
    10/17 - 143.6 - Bad food choices yesterday
    10/18
    10/19 -
    10/20 - 142.9
    10/21 - 141.8 - Always good to see the scale go down.
    Week 4
    10/22 - 141.9 - I hit 141.0 Sept 20, and ended September at 141.7, so I am still in the gain margin
    10/23 - 141.2 - Getting back to my September numbers now, I had hoped to be into the 130s this month.
    10/24 - 140.6 - So much better.
    10/25 - 141.2 - I'm good with that, but I don't want to go over the 141s again!
    10/26 - 141.2 - Striving to get that .2 off before Wednesday weigh-in
    10/27 - 140.6 - Slept in, so maybe not an accurate number.
    10/28 - 139.6 - My 2 year anniversary of joining MFP at 191 pounds. Down 51.4 : - )
    Final Week
    10/29 - 140.2 - Yes, I celebrated weight loss by eating silly things.
    10/30 - 140.5
    10/31 - 140.1

    I don't want to use the beginning of this month as a marker because I ended September at 141.7
    I will say that I lost 1.6 pounds this month.

    Overall a really good month! I first saw my “ending” weight on October 11th and it took 20 days to see it again. My water weight fluctuates by a lot and it’s hard to tell whether it’s fat loss/gain or water sometimes; but persistence pays off. Daily weighing keeps my head in the game even when I get a bit off track. Great work this month everyone!

    🎃October Goals🎃
    ✅Weigh myself every day
    ✅Count every calorie
    ✅End the month weighing the same or less than the beginning!

    10/18…208.2 Jumping in now since Lose 5lbs + is on sick leave. Thanks for offering this challenge. Nice to see some familiar faces!
    10/19…207.4 Yay!
    10/20…207.0 Made myself stop snacking last night. It wasn’t easy but I reminded myself that I wasn’t actually hungry. Old habits!
    10/21…206.2 Come on 205 !!!!!!!
    Week 4
    10/22…207.6 Wrong direction but still showing a loss this month. Today I will be more diligent.
    10/23…206.8 Still going strong…..I love good days!
    10/24…207.8 The struggle is real.
    10/25…208.2 This too shall pass! (but not tomorrow or the next day as I travel tomorrow).
    10/26…208.2 Still better than the beginning of the month, but I can do much better.
    10/27…210.4 After-Travel weight. Today I will reconcile.
    10/28…209.2 What a roller coaster ride the journeys can be!
    Final Week
    10/29…207.9 Working it down but could make better choices.
    10/30…208.4 Eating in the middle of the night and then weighing early AM is not recommended.
    10/31…208.4 No change overnight but down 2.6 lbs for the round and I am grateful for that.

    @cachoey Thank you for creating this challenge!!! Similar to @dawnbgethealthy , I was also a part of another group. Happy to join!

    At the end of July, I reached my UGW of 110 lbs. Since then I've been trying to maintain under 115 lbs and try to start gaining muscle.

    10/25 - 116.6
    10/26 - 116.2 ... 30% BF... I've been somewhat content with measurements (except hips) because I first reached 30% BF at 111.2 lbs weigh-in on 6/29/20. This month, I've been trying to do at least 6k+ steps and two 30 min strength training sessions a week.
    10/27 - 115.4 ... I used to track calories daily but mostly stopped during Sept to now. Trying to start again.
    10/28 - 115

    Final Week
    10/29 - 116.4 ... Ouch! Last night, I had burrito bowl along with chips and queso for dinner, estimated 1750 cals for the whole day but perhaps the sodium at dinner had a bigger impact then I anticipated.
    10/30 - 115.6
    10/31 - 116.6 ... Yep, I really indulged on a Friday night. Just gotta keep going and keep my head in the game. Maintenance is not easy and I may slip up but I won't give up! I'm in it for the long run!

    October Weight Gain: +2.3
    Well, this was not in my plans. But life has really changed for me these past two months. I recognize that I have been snacking on my children's leftovers as I am eating to deal with the stress of virtual school. I forget to add those calories to my log and they are adding up quickly on the scale. I see my doctor this week for additional follow up on my knee, as it is not getting better despite four months of rest. I need to drink more as well. Despite this setback, I do have more insight to what I need to change. Many of you had a great month. Congrats on your achievements and I wish you the best next month!
