    I chose Wednesday because that was the day I started using MFP so I figured just use this day.

    It's weigh-in day!

    Username piqueaboo
    Weigh In Day: Saturday
    PW (Previous Weight): 211
    CW (Current Weight): 212.6

    I'm back from holidays and gained a little (I think it was yesterday's sandwich mainly and not enough water) but I'm not upset, I'm back home so can get back on track - here's to October! I need to excuse myself for the next weigh-in, I won't have access to a scale on Saturday.

    So today I had a bday meal out with my son and it was Nando's …needless to say I think I went over my calories … but I only do one birthday a year so I'm all ok with that....my scales broke as well so have to get some new ones ..so they will arrive tomorrow and hopefully not too much of a difference in weight, but we will see … so for today and a tiny bit yesterday, I went over my calories for my bday, but again all good and well I have to enjoy life … I might lose this week I might sts but either way back on it full pelt tomorrow! wooot!!

    I am glad you enjoyed your birthday. My personal opinion is there are times we have to go over calories and it’s ok if it is only occasionally.

    I hope your back and tummy feel better today. Is the car show for old cars? My Moms friend owns a bunch. He drove us to the airport in a 68 New Yorker I think. Cool car!

    Not too bad for a vacation gain. Getting back into a routine will set you up for a great October.

    Friday check in
    ✅ Steps 5k daily
    Zone minutes 480/650
    ❌ Stay within calories
    ✅ Track food accurately

    Yesterday’s swim was awesome as I already reported. Now my goal is to hit 80 laps. Today will be a short swim as we have to grocery shop and then go to another store. Afternoon we have a dentist appointment.

    It was nice to read about why you all choose your weigh day. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Saturday!

    I picked Saturday (morning) because we often go out to dinner Saturday night and that may involve a drink. So I’d rather weigh in BEFORE that and have the whole week to recover.

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 steps. I can’t remember what date I posted last so let me know if I miss a day.

    Hi all. So my planned absence turned into a not so planned absence and I've been gone for longer than I meant to be. But, I'd like to come back now. I've been doing a lot of self reflection for the past few days and have come to some realizations.

    So first, we got some terrible news about my Uncle. He went to the doctor because he hasn't been feeling good for awhile. Turns out he has cancer in his kidneys and lungs and they've given him weeks to live. I didn't cope well with that. Through my reflection though, I've realized that this derailment- eating everything in sight and not exercising - was due to more that just that. I've realized that I'm scared of getting to goal. Like, what happens then? Maintenance is so much harder isn't it? Also, I freaked out a little after having a conversation with my husband about having skin removal surgery someday and he wasn't really supportive of the idea. To work this hard and lose all this weight and still have body age issues but for different reasons; it sucks. But I can't go back. The alternative was much worse. I feel tired and cranky all the time right now from being bloated and not feeding my body the things it needs. My clothes are also tight and uncomfortable. Good thing I gave away all my bigger ones! It's either knock this off or go naked!

    Anyway, October is going to be a fresh start for me. Back to eating right, back to exercising, and most importantly-back to this group. If It wasn't for this group, I wouldn't have gotten as far as I have. According to the scale this morning, I've gained 15lbs, yikes.

    So, Daily Goals

    80+ oz water
    9000steps
    Between 1200-1300 calories
    Intermittent fasting window 12:30-8:30
    30+ min exercise

    My starting weight for this month is 165.0

    Welcome back - We got this Ashley .... I gained 35lbs while I was on support the entire month of September ... So sorry to hear about your Uncle ....big hugsssssssssss .. back on Keto and walking 5 days a week ... we can do this :)

    @Tazaria87
    Sorry about your uncle. I can imagine it would be scary getting near maintenance and what comes next. There is a maintenance thread in the group and you could check it out and even ask some questions. Great goals to get you back on track.

    @Jpedno
    That’s one of the reasons I weigh in on Fridays. If I am going to eat out it will more likely be on the weekends especially if the grandkids come over and we get pizza.

    Hi there, is it too late to change my weigh in day for October? I had picked Wednesday, but I'd like to change it to Friday if possible.
