    Good Monday Morning everyone.

    I'm new to the group this month and I thank you all for the warm welcome already.

    Little bit about me, I'm 47 years old, married, have 3 kids (21,19 &17) and one dog.

    Weight journey wise I am a yoyo dieter. Exercise is not my problem, food is. I love it. Not the good healthy food the junkier the better. I can honestly say I love Mcdonalds and could eat it every day for all 3 meals. :( I used to yoyo between150-143 always wanting to reach 140. Why I am stuck on numbers on a scale is another thread.

    9 years ago, I went back to school and changed my job. Freshman 15 hit and then my new career didn't help. Since then, I have been on and off myfitnesspal and going between 172-155.

    For myself I really need to pre-plan and prep meals. If I don't have it readily available, I will pick the quickest option which is usually fast food or a bag of chips. I work 7am-7pm or longer so all of my meals are at work, and I have huge cravings to snack at night when I get home, or somedays I will be so busy I will not eat or even drink all day.

    This week has been a mix. I started with an overly inflated initial weight, 168.8, due to a pizza and beer party the night before. I had one failed day with snacks and cals over 2,000 but I also had 2 days of too low-calories. I know the reasons and I know the corrections. Exercise was ok I managed to get 3 runs in but only 1 strength training but considering I worked over 60 hours this week I'm good with that.

    Oct. 2 steps- 17,616

    5'8"
    PW-168.8
    CW-160.2

    This week goals:
    1: Prep and Plan meals
    2: Run x4
    3: Strength x3
    4: Close all my circles on my apple watch

    I would like to join the step tracker group for October if I may. I currently do about 7,000/day. One of my new October goals is to hit 8,000/day. Thanks. I am not sure how this works, exactly. Do I report on a daily basis or weekly? Is it liketge weigh INS where you have a specific day? Do you need my end of September numbers or do I just start with October?

    Here are my October numbers

    Oct 1: 7448
    Oct 2: 3049

    All my numbers will be coming from my Fitbit.

    Happy Birthday! I am glad you had a great day.

    @JR50Fit
    Congrats on the loss!

    @tahm42
    Fantastic loss!

    @fatfifties
    Look at you settling into onderland. Nice loss! It must be fun travelling like that for 8 months.

    @rwood566
    It is always inspiring to read your journey. I have to get thanksgiving out of the way before I think about hallowe’en. I forgot it was this weekend and I have the family coming over.

    Let’s set the goal at 8,000, in keeping with our monthly activity. Start on Oct 2nd, got it. I wasn’t sure if you had it set up like the weigh ins starting on the first Sunday of the month. If it is Ok with you, I’ll just report on a weekly basis to cut down on the paper work. 👍

    @lindamtuck2018

    I really do need to at least try to stick to a whole recorded day, one day a week. For instance, today breakfast and dinner were fine. Lunch was more calorie dense because I added a fresh fruit smoothie. To that fresh fruit smoothie, I added dried golden berries, goji berries, etc. It wound up being delicious and way more calories than I had planned. 😉
