    2017 Starting Weight - 242
    September 2019- 151.8
    September Goal - 146.8
    Ultimate goal - 121 (1/2 of my former self)
    5th- 151.8
    12th- 157.6
    15th- 152.4
    16th- 151.4
    17th- 150.4
    18th- 150.2

    I’m going to weigh in more often while I work on getting back on track this month. I think I’m done with my rebound loss, 7lbs of carb bloat in the last 5 days.

    Female, 5'3", 58 years old for 04 more days.
    I will be weighing daily, it keeps me accountable and motivated and shows trends.
    Starting weight October 28.18 - 191
    September start 158.6
    September goal 153
    Ultimate goal is 115

    August goal was 155 (Same as July goal) - lost 1.4 pounds for the month of August, lost 2.0 pounds in the month of July, lost 0.7 pounds in the month of June. Slow going, but going.
    4.1 pounds lost in 3 months, and 30 lost in 10 months so happy with that. It would be great to have lost 40 by October 28.19 - 2 months to lose 10 pounds, a girl can hope and try ; - )

    September 01 - 158.6
    September 02 - 160.2 - Holiday weekend festivities caught up with me a bit. Hopefully I can get rid of that in a few days. Gained 1.6 in 1 day, took me almost 2 months to lose that much. It comes back way faster than I can lose it.
    September 03 - 161.7 - ouch. I am sure that tomorrow will be better.
    September 04 - 159.6 - still up, but heading in the right direction
    September 05 - 159.3 - I will try to get in extra workouts today.
    September 06 - 159.8
    September 07 - 159.7 - So the first week of the month is a bit of a bust so far, but I am determined to push through.
    September 08 - 159.5 - I have been really "good", so am hoping to get out of the Gain column and into the Loss column soon.
    September 09 - 160.3 - no comment
    September 10 - 159.3
    September 11 - 159.3 - Ice skating today : - ) It is early in the season for that, so one session only this week. It will ramp up in October as will my muscles associating with it.
    September 12 - 159.6 - Thursday
    September 13 - 158.7 - Almost back to September starting weight. So much hard work, seemingly without results. I have to stick with it. Really due for a woosh.
    September 14 - 160.4 - More gain, but not stressing about it. I had a sore shoulder this week, so didn't do Zumba for 4 days. It feels better today, so I will get in a good session. I really have to burn 500 calories per day and keep to 1200-1400 consumed in order to lose 1-2 pounds per month. 2 skating sessions this coming week will definitely help with calorie burn. Nowhere near throwing in the towel even though my results have sucked this month (and pretty much every month except for April lol). Very slow, but I will get there eventually.
    September 15 - 158.2 - Yay, I am finally below my September start weight for the first time this month. Thank you Zumba (Fitness Marshall hip-hop) for squishing all of the water out of me.
    September 16 - 157.6 - Woohoo finally lost 1 pound : - ) That was a lot of work.
    Sore shoulder again this morning, I woke up laying on it funny. I didn't do Zumba for my cardio yesterday so I am happy to not blame those movements since it I love and can stick with. I will have to think about the supporting muscles around my shoulder. Any exercises that would do that I am open to hearing about please.
    September 17 - 159.3 - Hmm, up almost 2 lbs since yesterday. I had 1116 calories left over yesterday so hoping it is a blip only.
    September 18 - 158.1

    September Loss/Gain: Loss 0.5

    Original starting weight – 253
    September starting weight – 192.6
    September goal – 187.6
    Ultimate goal – 145 to 155 (We’ll see when we get closer)


    01 - 192.6
    05 –194.6 Up after the holiday.
    12 – 195.4 Up again. I know what I need to do but have much upcoming travel. Uggggg.
    19 – 195.0 Bounced around all week. Scale up right now due to travel, lack of movement in car and high sodium restaurant food. I tried to make good choices, but so much hidden sodium! Working on it today.

    I will be here again, but I think I am taking a diet break for the next couple of weeks. I didn't really get anywhere in August because to be honest I lost my motivation. I have been on this journey for over a year now and have lost just over 35 pounds, but I am tired. Last month was a really rough month with some family issues that needed to be taken care of and now my birthday is coming up in a couple of days. So I am eating at maintenance until the 15th and will get back to my losing routine and finally get rid of these last couple of pounds. My ultimate goal is 135-138. I have been hovering between 142-145 the last month, so I am super close, but exhausted at the same time.


    Original starting weight - 178
    September starting weight - 8/30 weigh in 143.6
    September goal - 141
    Ultimate goal - 135-138

    1st - 143.6 on 8/30 before I left for FIL funeral in Texas

    5th- 145.1 still working on restaurant and water weight from 4 days in Texas

    12th - 145.6 I am officially 40 year old! Where has the time gone, lol. I have been able to maintain and live normally for about 5 weeks now. Even with all the stress of my FIL passing and all the craziness of my kids getting back into their new school years I have been able to do it. I have 2 in college (different schools), a senior in high-school, an 8th grader, and a 5th grader, lol, so when I say it's been crazy I mean it. I am really looking forward to getting under 140 and reaching my goal, so the diet break is over. Back at it today! Let's see what I can do the last half of the month.

    19th - 143.7 I have been back on my plan for about a week. Stalled for a couple of days with TOM, but dropped back down to my pre-break weight today. Hopefully I can lose at least a pound by next week and start making some progress.

    My husband has been sick all week and we have not been able to go the gym this week. For me, my allergies along with congestion bothered me all week. Also, I did eat only 1000 calories yesterday so I'm sure that helped. I had a dentist appt at 3pm. My usual lunch time is 1pm but I chose to leave work at 2pm and forego lunch. I let the fear of going way beyond 1200 get to me so I chose to just wait to eat my calories at dinner. I will keep trying.

    Have a good weekend!

    Previous post:
    I have noticed that I am losing a bit of muscle in my arms so I will step away from cardio a bit and add strength exercises again. Initially, I started with a mix of strength exercises and cardio which I have learned leads to slow weight loss [10 lbs in 7 months] but I do love my small muscle gains.
