    Woo!!!!! I lost more than 2 lbs this month. I'm ecstatic for this feat!

    I'm glad that I have been eating a little less. I've been cutting back a bit on how much bad snacking I do - chips, pretzels, cookies, etc. And I visit the vending machine a little less and it's right down the hall from my office.

    I have not really been doing strenuous exercising - only walking and biking. I'm extremely happy about this weight loss because if I keep this up then I can reach my goal by April 2019. I most certainly want to look my best for myself, fiance, and my family.

    Let's keep going everyone!!! :D

    Original starting weight - 305 May 5, 2018
    September starting weight - 256
    September goal - down 9 pounds, so be at 247
    Ultimate goal - Still not sure, 1st big goal 195

    9/1 256
    9/8 253
    9/15 250.8
    9/22 249.8 :# I am not totally surprised with only down a pound. More of the reason! Starting this week I have really increased physical activity. Now cycling three times a week (indoor recumbent bike). resistance, time, distance and speed. Plus mall walking twice a week. Considering when I started in May 2018 I could not walk a half block.

    9/29 246.4


    Total loss for September :- 9.6 lbs Kicked butt this month! Helped having 5 Saturday weigh ins.

    PS I know others have said it as well, but if you are not using a food scale to weigh everything you eat. I am telling you that food scale is priceless in assisting me, so I know exactly how much I am eating, for calories, carbs, fat, protein so I stay on track.

    Highest Weight Ever: 253 ( in 2014/2015)
    Original starting weight - 235 (on Jan 11, 2018)

    September starting weight - 178.8

    September goal - 5 lb Loss to be at 173.8

    Ultimate goal – 145 lbs by Valentine’s Day. By March 15, 2019 I hope to weigh no more than 153 after an initial and expected water weight gain after transitioning off my diet. I am allowing for (hopefully no more than) 8 pounds for the water weight.

    Total loss for September (so far): 1.2 Gain

    Sept 01: 178.8
    Sept 08: 177.6
    Sept 15: 180.0 I am not doing well at all this September round. I’ve got to reign it in.
    Sept 22: 176.0 Down four pounds since last weigh in and nearly 3 pounds since the beginning of the challenge overall. Still making up for the travels between 9-8 and 9-15. I’m not likely to make the whole 5 pound goal with a travel day (again) next week that will probably involve all the wrong foods. However, any loss is a good loss and all losses lead to that same Wonderful Place.
    Sept 30:

    Final Thoughts: I am weighing in on the FIRST and LAST day of each month to see the total monthly loss.

    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    September starting weight - 148.4
    September goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    September 1 - 148.4
    September 8 - 147.6
    September 15- 149.6
    September 22 - 149.2
    September 29 - 147.8 ... I dropped back into the very top of my maintenance range four of seven days this week. I plan to get back to the middle of the range or lower as I was in July and August. It feels good to at least be back below the ceiling.
    September 30 -

    Total loss for September: 0.8 pounds. Certainly not where I wanted to be at the end of the month, but WAY better than a continued increase!

    After being in maintenance and recomposition for a couple months, I started a small but steady increase. After realizing it wasn't just a "normal" fluctuation, I spent September getting back down just a bit. I may end up adjusting my goal range up or at least expanding it to more than seven pounds, but I'm sure glad I caught this before it was a MAJOR increase.

    I am still participating in monthly maintenance challenges, like this one, but until I'm solidly steady back in the middle or bottom my goal range for a while, I'll also be in weight loss mode.
