    Glad to see you back @tiabirdie56 - you've been missed!

    So yesterday's gain to 147.9 must have been a blip. Scale this morning was 146.7. That's more like it.

    Being extra careful today. Have a birthday party tomorrow - my son and his (now) 3 year old have back to back birthdays. Daughter in law is serving pizza - which always causes water retention.

    Thoughts: I was a tad lower yesterday, but ate dinner late. I'm on track with my exercise and eating plan. I'm a bit worried about today's birthday party. Pizza & cake never bode well. May switch out today's rest day until tomorrow to minimize the hit. Guzzling water lol.

    More than hit my initial goal this month, thanks to a cold that wiped me out for a week. Actually weighed in at 143.8 lbs yesterday, which is hitting what my current goal weight was set to, but it went back up this morning as I did not eat the best yesterday. Current plan is to drop my goal weight down to 140 and maintain in a range of 140-145.

    September Gain - 0.7 lbs

    Thoughts: ARGH. At least it's only a half pound. Knew this spike would happen. Pizza. Every stinking time. Expecting it doesn't make it any less irritating. Not worried, just irked. It will drop back down and my meal plan this coming week is solid.

    September Wrap-up: All in all, not a bad month. Yes, there were a couple of spikes, and almost a week of being totally off due to not feeling well. But, as we like to say, success is more than numbers on a scale.

    Trend Weight is down - so that's a plus!

    I amped up my strength training in both frequency and intensity. Most importantly, I kept at it - going right back after the break when I wasn't feeling well. I also listened to my body - resting and adjusting the goals as needed I'm at a level that is challenging, so October will be focused on consistency and will be adding planks to help with core strength.

    As we move into fall and winter, I have been figuring out how to lighten up my comfort food recipes and looking at continuing to add more whole foods as the products seasons change.

    • Move to 2-week meal plans 👀
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP

    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day Back on track!

    Not too bad at 1 lb average a month. I like pushing myself to a higher weight loss even if I rarely get to the target of the month.

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    August 31 starting weight - 145.2 (ten-day rolling average weight 146.3)
    September goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight).

    August 31 - 145.2 (146.3)
    September 7 - 144.8 (145.1)
    September 14 - 143.4 (144.5)
    September 21 - 142.0 (143.0)
    September 28 - 139.0 (141.8)
    September 30 - 139.4 (141.4)

    Total loss for September: By one-day scale weight, I lost 5.8 pounds, and my average is down 4.9 pounds. That's a lot for someone my size. My average weight is now BELOW my goal weight. My scale weight is below my goal RANGE. August was not a good month; I made up for it in September. Bring on the fall!. I hope YOU get to YOUR goals soon, too, and I'll see you on the October thread (thanks @SamanthaLouiseMence)
