September Monthly Challenge

Goodness how did this happen It's the September Challenge!!

A new challenge month but the old spreadsheet!

So don't look for a new one of those, but continue to post your weight on the 'Keto Monthly Challenge Spreadsheet' which Nikki will update as needed. You can obviously also post your weight in this post and many do.

For anyone new out there; feel very welcome to join, we usually post our weigh Sundays and use the 'Keto Monthly Challenge Spreadsheet' also in 'Announcements' to track weight.

We use this thread to encourage each other and to add our weight as well if we want to and generally chat!

It's fun and it's been working and we've lost a shed load of weight between us. It seems to keep us going and even if we go up occasionally (and who doesn't!) we get back to it and continue the journey.

So here we go, good luck in September.

To finish off August: Friday 31st

Sunday 09/02
Sunday 09/09
Sunday 09/16
Sunday 09/23
Sunday 09/30

For once that actually completes the month!

Good luck to everyone, welcome to everyone new and well done the old faithfuls!!

    I'm really looking forward to this month! I'm going to implement some new restrictions - dairy & coffee free, and practice some new tactics - exercise & lots of water!

    i am in for sure, but i have to post my weight on saturday. i seems more accurate, because after measuring myself, i have my saturday refeed and might have too much water on sunday.

    btw, a week looks like that: (friday and saturday i am at lowest weight)

    and 6 months look like this:

    Small goals for me this month. Get below 154.2 (August start weight) and be able to do 10 consecutive sit ups (I'm doing Crossfit, so I really hope this goal is met).

    I'm in! I so need to drink more water (still cramping despite increased electrolytes) and start a daily workout routine again (including anti-sciatica core strength work).

    September's goal is to break into the 140's.

    I'm on a roll. Let's do this! My original goal when I started in January was 150. I set it that high because I was so discouraged after months of trying to lose to no avail. I didn't want to set it at something unreachable. Now I'm 4 lbs away from my original goal! Keto was the key. I stalled for three months bouncing around 160. Cutting out most alcohol was the key. I'll be interested to see if there is a stall between here and my goal and what the key will be to breaking it.

    SW - January - 175
    September goal - weigh less than 153.6
    Goal - 140

    Anything to help keep me accountable. September will be hard since we are taking a two week trip to visit my in-laws in Michigan, so I will have less direct control over what is served at the dinner table, and I guarantee there won't be a bunch of keto-friendly meals. Eating out all the time would be easier!

    I started Keto with my hubby in June and have been doing really well. We are doing dirty/lazy Keto, but doing well. I've decided that I'm giving myself 15 lb goals, and reward myself with little things, then maybe a big one on big losses. :)

    September? Wow! The entire month of August just passed me by. Our kids started school and for some reason, this year it threw me for a loop. With my work load increasing, working on continuing my education, and traveling; I have been a bit stretched.

    The last time I logged on the spreadsheet was 7/29 :( I read through a lot of August's comments - you are all awesome! It is such an encouragement to see what everyone has been up to and the progress that has been made - even in the midst of some pretty difficult life events.

    Yesterday was my first day back to logging meals and next week I plan to get back into the gym. I have not weighed myself in weeks - which is rare for me because I typically weigh every day. I know I have been off the rails, so I'm concerned about what I will see when I do. (Not quite ready to yet - I'm thinking ignorance is bliss - even though I know it's not)

    SW: 153
    Weight as of 7/29: 130

    I’m a newbie to the group, but not MFP or keto. I have been a bit off program the past month as my mother passed away and I am definitely an emotional eater. Looking forward to accountability and progress.
