Welcome to the new team members! This is a great team, very interactive!
My name is Stephanie, and I’m from Maine. (You probably already guessed that lol.) I am married (23 years today-woo hoo!) and I have a 19 yo son that is in the Maine National Guard and sophomore year of college. I also have a stepson that has a 7 mo son so my hubs and I are now grandparents.
I have been overweight since about 3rd grade when I lived with my grandmother for a year. In high school and college, I was not terribly overweight, but once I started working, the weight has gradually crept up, up, up! I lost 49# about 5 yrs ago using mfp, but a back injury derailed my progress. This year, February 28th to be exact, I rejoined mfp and WW online. I decided to go for a walk the next morning and stepped on ice, slipped and fell, and dislocated and broke my ankle. I had surgery in March to put it back together. But I am back on track, lost about 35# so far this year.
Goals for October (pretty much same as September):
-Walk 30 minutes each day
-Drink 64 oz water daily
-Prelog Mon-Thur meals
-10,000 steps daily
This weekend was our anniversary trip away to NH. We walked around a car show on Saturday (something like 13,000 steps) and hiked 5+ miles today (17,531 steps so far today), but that doesn’t offset the crazy amount of calories I ate! Weigh in tomorrow is probably going to be bad! But I enjoyed every minute of it and logged every bite!

Well got my hike in this weekend at Theodore Roosevelt national park. I tried getting a co worker to go with me but her husband works shift work and this was his weekend off so I went on my own did a 4.5 mile hike through some moderately rough terrain and was completely worth it. I felt so great I love hiking I use to hike three times a week with a friend back in my hometown but it’s been a while since I’ve got a good hike it. Hopefully I’ll get a few more in before the snow settles in we are already getting into the low thirty’s in the morning but still around 65-70 mid day but it won’t last long here.

Wow, I HAVE to get this turned around! Thankfully, @minstrelofsarcasm has been talking to me and is going try and help me get back on track! I'm so grateful for my new friendship with her and hope she feels the same. 🙃 I hope I can prove to myself, her and you guys that I can get back on track and have a loss next week! I'm going to remain on the sideline again for this month and see what I can pull off before rejoining you guys! 😊🥰

Are we supposed to be keeping track of our steps?
