    Day/Weight/Comment

    11 September - 166.6 lbs - as someone said earlier, better late than never!
    12 September - 166.0 lbs - Hanging in there. I'm going for my last camping trip of the summer tonight and won't be able to weigh in again until Monday. In the meantime, I am going to do my best and try to see a loss on Monday. Wish me luck! :smiley:
    13 September - No weigh in
    14 September - No weigh in
    15 September - 162.6 lbs - I feel like I am being pranked. How is that even possible? I’ll probably step on the scale tomorrow and it will all be back. 🤣 We will see I guess! I managed to get on the scale a day earlier than I thought! Woohoo!
    16 September - 164.2 lbs (-2.4 lbs) - Hey, I will take it. :)
    17 September - 164.2 lbs - I’m ok with that because I have a serious migraine and haven’t been able to move since yesterday afternoon without wanting to be sick. I’m just going to sleep a lot today.
    18 September - 164.8 lbs - That’s what I get for giving up soda and dealing with migraines for two days.
    19 September - 165.4 lbs - ... ... I am not even sure what to say. I've been so good this week, no extra sugar, no going over my calorie goal... and I'm still up. :'(
    20 September - 164.0 lbs - It’s Friday!!! Hallelujah!
    21 September - 164.0 lbs
    22 September - 164.4 lbs, that extra slice of zucchini bread didn’t do me justice! Lol!
    23 September - 163.8 lbs - we are starting to get somewhere! (That 15 mile bike ride and 3 mile walk helped! LOL) I am also celebrating one week with no soda, no candy, one brownie but nothing else! I am so excited and I think that the headaches and crappy side effects are gone now!
    24 September - 163.2 lbs
    25 September - 162.0 lbs - I’m taking it easy today. I had a horrible night terror last night and only managed 3-4 hours of “sleep”. I’m so exhausted, I’m tempted to break my no soda streak just to get through the day...
    26 September - 161.8 lbs - I made it though the day yesterday with no soda, so my streak is unbroken. I anticipated a gain because I ate a little over my calorie allotment and I barely moved because I was so tired but that didn’t happen. 😁 I’m just going to take that as a win and try to get back on track today.
    27 September - 161.6 lbs - I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop... lol!
    28 September - 162.4 lbs - there’s that other shoe! 🤣 Honestly though, I am super happy because we went to a buffet for dinner last night for my brother-in-laws birthday and I didn’t stuff myself and I didn’t pig out on the sugar afterwards. All in all, I will take it. Just no more gaining please. Lol!
    29 September - 162.4 lbs - Hey, I did say no more gaining so I can’t complain. 😜 Another plus, today is two weeks with no soda! I’ve had only water these last two weeks except for one 6 oz glass of moscato the other night. I’m so proud of myself! I never thought I would break the sugar cycle.

    I turn 40 years old this month and I was really wanting to be at 140, but I don't see that happening. Maybe by the end of the month I can hit that goal.

    Starting weight: 178
    Start weight this month: 143.6
    Goal weight this month: 140 and to continue to drop my trend weight
    Target goal weight: 135

    May gained 1.1 pounds (EW - 149.3)
    June lost: 3.4 pounds (EW - 145.9)
    July lost: 2.2 pounds (EW - 143.7)
    August lost: 0.1 pounds (EW - 143.6) complete wash for the month


    1 September - NW - FIL Funeral in Texas 4 days
    2 September - NW - FIL Funeral in Texas 4 days
    3 September - 148.7 we are back and I am up about 5 pounds. I am sure a lot of water weight. Very stressful time.
    4 September 146.9 at least it went down. Did ok yesterday, but my motivation is not great at the moment. I need about a week of sleep right now.
    5 September - 145.1 Still working my way back down
    6 September - 145.1 wish it was a couple of pounds lower, but I'll take it. Haven't tried at all this week. kind of took a diet break!
    7 September - 143.8
    8 September - 144.5 not enough water yesterday. Tons of movement, cleaning, laundry, and tons of errands all day.
    9 September - 147.0 I thought I did better than this yesterday, but I guess not. Maybe I am just holding onto some water weight.
    10 September - 146.5 was expecting to be lower, but ok with this. I am 40 years old today!!!
    11 September - 143.8 not a real number. Drank way to much last night celebrating my bday. Will be back up tomorrow.
    12 September - 145.6 This sounds more like it. As of today I am back on it and looking to finally lose the last 10 pounds. Diet break officially over
    13 September - 143.8 On track for today so far. Maybe next week I can start seeing some lower numbers
    14 September - 143.2 this is the lowest this month so far. Still have about a pound to go to get back to where I was last month and now it’s the ever so dreaded weekend.
    15 September - 144.8 maybe sodium, but did well yesterday
    16 September -146.3 TOM is showing up today and the chips and dip I decided to snack on all day probably didn't help.
    17 September - 146.3 Day 2 and feel like crap. Major water retention, my ring barely fit this am
    18 September - 145.7 a little movement, not much though. Hormones will be the death of me!
    19 September - 143.7 finally a whoosh. Now maybe I will see a decent drop tomorrow.
    20 September - 142.8 another great drop. I’m back to where I was before month long break. Now to get some progress made and get under 140!
    21 September - 143.7 up a bit today from restaurant sodium. Chinese for a surprise lunch date with the hubby.
    22 September - 143.7 drank to much yesterday so will probably be up tomorrow a bit, did well on food though.
    23 September -145.4 normal Monday fluctuation. Lower than last Monday so I am ok with it.
    24 September - 144.3 and back down we go. Really looking to finish this month strong. It sucks the last day is a Monday this month.
    25 September - 140.9 I weighed multiple times this morning. I did a 24 hour fast yesterday and only ate about 600 calories, so I am sure I will have a bounce up. I would be happy ending the month at 141 or 140 though.
    26 September - 142.0 I knew I would go up a bit, but it's really only 1.1 pounds, so I am not going to complain.
    27 September - 142.0 just a couple more ounces and I will make my goal for this month!
    28 September - 140.9 another low calorie day and not enough water. It will probably bounce back up a bit tomorrow. Need to stay good through the darn weekend!
    29 September - 140.9 I may end the month today, but super stoked! Today the Cowboys play and it’s going to be a rough day. Happy with this month though!

    Well done everyone for sticking with it and not giving up! Be proud of what you have achieved!

    Starting weight 86

    Goal weight this month 79.0
    Target goal weight 60

    Day/Weight/Comment

    1 Sept - 81.2 Ready to start again this month. Holiday in November. Will be in the 60s for it 😊
    2 Sept - 81.1 😁 it's a loss even though I drank that Lewis Road Creamery chocolate milk 😋
    3 Sept - 80.8 😁 not bad!
    4 Sept - 80.6 🙂 happy with that, it's a drop.
    5 Sept - 80.7 🙂 all good!
    6 Sept - 81.2 😄 back where I started! But I feel like it will be gone by the end of the week.
    7 Sept - 81.2 😄 lol that'll be down to that bag of Whitakers Tweats I ate last night #noregrets
    8 Sept - 81.4 😕 eating well enough, but digestion super gluggy the last 3 days. Have taken a double dose of phloe - fingers crossed!
    9 Sept - 81.7 😬 still gluggy
    10 Sept - 82.2 👀 soooo freaking bloated. Oh well. Shall persevere!
    11 Sept - 82.5 what goes up must come down!
    12 Sept - 82.2 😎
    13 Sept - 82.1 😊 will probably be up again tomorrow. Ate too much today 😄
    14 Sept - 82.5 was expecting that. I suspect perimenopause has a bit to answer for too.
    15 Sept - 82.2 🙂
    16 Sept - 81.6 😊
    17 Sept - 81.0 😎😎 happy with that.
    18 Sept - 81.0 😊 all good.
    19 Sept - 80.6 😁 lunch and dinner out today, but hoping to hit the 70s by the end of the week!
    20 Sept - 80. 8 😄 totally deserve that number. No regrets.
    Edited as I re-weighed and it was 80.8!
    21 Sept - 80.1 fingers crossed for hitting the 70s tomorrow!
    23 Sept - 80.8 nearly there 😀
    24 Sept - 80.5 really sucky day today, will probably be up tomorrow.
    25 Sept - 81.2 not too bad, but ate badly again today. Must not let myself be derailed.
    26 Sept - can't for the life of me remember what the scale said this morning 🤔
    27 Sept - 79.9😎 Well hello 70s!
    28 Sept - 80.2😄 ribs and M&Ms will do that!
    30 Sept - 80.3💃a successful month all in all. Well I didn't gain anyway!

  • Starting weight 324.5 (started on 22nd August 19)
    Start weight this month 312.5
    Goal weight this month 299
    Target goal weight 180 (maybe, that's subject to change as I haven't given much thought to where I want to be ultimately, just the little targets along the way!)

    1 September - 312.5 exceeded 10k steps today for the first time since I started!

    2 September 311.4

    3 September 311.7 feeling rubbish today. Think I have a nasty cold coming! Only just met my step goal too.

    4 September 310.9 yay for going in the right direction again!

    5 September 310.1 small loss but still good for THAT time of month! Step goal met and exceeded too! I will get less fat!

    6 September 308.8 delighted with that and I think it's down to the extra walking. There has to be some bonus to heaving all this weight around, and that's it, walking burns the calories!

    7 September 307.9 over the moon to read this on the scale this morning and actually did a little victory dance when the scale updated my status here. I'm in the next stones bracket! Started in 23 now (just) in 21 😁😁😁😁 stupidly delighted and also scared of wrecking it!

    8 September 308.1 lol, couldn’t really expect it to go down again today even though I’ve stuck to my plan. More steps today to see if it helps tomorrow 😊

    9 September 309.5 😔 so I knew it couldn't constantly go down but guessing that's my TOM water weight hitting. Logically I know it'll go off again but gutted that I got into the next stone bracket and am now not! Steps still high yesterday so keeping on going! Guess my body is adjusting to the diet and not losing weight in shock now!

    10 September 308.0 Thank goodness for that! I knew in my head it couldn't be a gain but seeing the numbers go up wasn't nice! Glad they're back down even if not in the bracket yet!

    11 September 308.6 so a short lived thank goodness for that. Ho hum. Tomorrow is another day.

    12 September 308.4 Dare I hope it's going in the right direction? Maybe! 🙄

    13 September 307.9 now have everything crossed that it doesn't go back up! 😂 big grin today though!

    14 September 307.5 heading in the right direction but been out for dinner tonight so who knows what the next few days will bring?

    15 September 305.6!!!!! Ecstatic but waiting for last night's dinner to have an impact. Not that I was silly in what I ate but chips are never good! Neither is a tiny bit of lemon meringue! 🙄😂

    16 September 304.7!!! Even more ecstatic! Finally the TOM water is gone and all my effort is working! I might have an outside chance of hitting my wildly ambitious goal for this month of 299! 😁😁😁😁😁

    17 September 304.8 Still grinning! Struggling with getting my steps in on my work days but doing my best!

    18 September 305.2 can’t always go down lol. Still smiling! Haven’t hit step goal today yet as 5 hours in the car and then 3 in a meeting doesn’t help but I’ll do better tomorrow 😊

    19 September 304.9 Definitely still smiling! Not sure that 299 at the end of September is possible but hanging in there anyway. MFP one month anniversary for me today! Here's to the next months/years etc!

    20 September 304.8 Struggling with plantar fasciitis (severe heel pain) today. It’s been coming for a couple of weeks but I tried to work through it. Big mistake. Desperate to get my steps in but it’s unbelievably painful. Ice is helping and I’ve bought a kit from Amazon. Fingers crossed it helps. Will be delighted if I manage to get down to 300 this month let alone my overly optimistic 299!

    21 September 305.4 Could be the lack of movement yesterday, could be because I didn't drink enough, could be natural fluctuations. Whatever it is I'm sticking with it. The almost permanent icing of my foot seems to be really helping but I'm going to take it easy again today just in case!

    22 September 305.6 heading in the wrong direction again! Hopefully just a fluctuation! I'm not quitting!

    23 September 304.8 thank goodness for that again! Onwards and downwards 😁

    24 September 302.8 WooHoo! Delighted with this one! No idea how I've managed it because I can't walk so much at the moment with the heel pain but thrilled to bits with this. Praying it continues until the end of the month and I get my 299 goal for the month!

    25 September 302.2 woohoo again! If I can just do 3lbs by the end of the week I might make my overly ambitious goal that was just plucked out of thin air! 😂

    26 September 301.2 Triple Woohoo! Can’t quite figure out how this is happening but not complaining! Even if I don’t get to my goal of being at 299 in 4 days I’m still delighted with this! Might be a bit more realistic next month 😂

    27 September 299.8!!!!!! Ok so it might only be for today just now but I’m under 300lbs already! 5 weeks and 1 day in and 25.5lbs down! Totally delighted! 😁

    28 September 299.1! Holy kittens! Truly hope I’ll stay here for the next 3 days but can’t see how that’ll happen, but if only for today I made it close to my September goal. 😃

    29 September 297.8 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

    30 September 297.6 Over the moon! Great month! Thank you so much for this thread and I look forward to the next one!

    Have a good day all 😊

    Starting weight :236.3
    September SW: 229.3
    September GW: 223.6
    Ultimate GW: 160

    Day/Weight/Comment


    1 September - 229.3
    2 September - 229.6, I did a lot of walking yesterday and didn’t drink enough water.
    3 September - 229.1
    4 September -230.0, I don’t know why it feels like I’m not moving out of this range at all!
    5 September - 228.4, feel better about the scale finally going down. Just wish it would do this consistently.
    6 September - 228.6, this is feeling frustrating. I’m going to suck it up and get a food scale tonight.
    7 September - 229.5
    8 September - 230.2, I went and purchased a food scale today. Also I was able to get my 10k steps in.
    9 September - 229.3, not feeling so hot today. Very nauseous and pukey.
    10 September - 227.7, it’s a step in the right direction! I’ll take it
    11 September - 227.6
    12 September - 227.4! It’s still moving yesterday was a rough day. Didn’t eat very well but I did get a nice long walk in last night.
    13 September - 227.2
    14 September - 226.0!
    15 September - 226.0
    16 September - 225.6, I’m thinking this isn’t a real number.
    17 September - 226.0
    18 September - 225.2
    19 September - 225.0, it’s been a crazy week at work. Have got to get a walk in!
    20 September - 226.0
    21 September - 227.2, TOM started yesterday. I ate all the food so I’m sure the water retention is strong.
    22 September - 226.0, back what I started TOM at, hopefully I’ll start to head back down.
    23 September - 226.5, feeling really discouraged but I am starting to wonder if this is just how my body does it. I bounced around for just over a week last month until it really went down.
    24 September - 224.8, that made me feel good this morning! Hopefully it stays going in this direction.
    25 September - 222.1, oh yeah!
    26 September - 220.7 , I’m officially going to say I passed my goal for this month!
    27 September - 221.6, late night bowl of cereal
    28 September - 222.0, haven’t done any kind of exercise all week at least have to try to get a walk in.
    29 September - 223.5, I got a lot of house work done just shy of 10k steps. Hoping I will start to see some sort of trend in the way my weight fluctuates.
    30 September - 221.8

    Lost 7.5 lbs this month!

    01 Sep- no weigh day (NA)
    02 Sep- no weigh day (NA)
    03 Sep- 159 lb. Feeling good!! Might still be holding water weight from TOM.
    04 Sep- 160.5 lb ( + 1.5 lb) ??? Not sure why the spike. I felt pretty dehyrated yesterday so I am making it a point to drink more water today. Maybe that's why. Just have to wait and see!
    05 Sep- 160 lb ( -0.5 lb) TOM weight is tappering off I think.
    06 Sep- no weigh day (NA)
    07 Sep- no weigh day (NA)
    08 Sep- 159.5 lb ( -1 lb) Heck yeah! The scale might not say I have lost anything this month so far.... But I feel like I have! Not sure what the deal is.... oh well. Just gonna keep on it and see what happens
    09 Sep- 159.5 lb ( 0 )
    10 Sept- 159.5 lb ( 0 ) I think my scale has gone on strike lol
    11 Sept- 158 lb ( -1.5 lb) WHOOP THERE IT IS!!!! I had a feeling I was going to see a drop soon *happy dance*
    12 Sept- 158.5 lb ( +0.5lb ) Does "slow and steady wins the race" apply here?? Lol I hope so.
    13 Sept- no weigh day (NA)
    14 Sept- no weigh day (NA)
    15 Sept- no weigh day (NA)
    16 Sept- 158.5 lb ( 0 ) Errrrrrmmmmm. I need to start doing better if I want to get to -4 lbs!! I'm only at -0.5 lbs and we are over halfway through the month. *sighs*
    17 Sept- 159.5 lb ( +1 lb ) FML
    18 Sept- No weigh day (NA
    19 Sept- 157.5 lb ( -2 lb) Getting there. Frustrating ups & downs... but overall heading in the right direction..slowly.
    20 Sept- 156.5 lb (-1 lb) I was really good lastnight about not snacking on my kid's dinner... Trying out a new thing where I chew gum while preparing it. Can't snack with gum in my mouth lol Seems to be working.
    21 Sept- no weigh day
    22 Sept- no weigh day
    23 Sept- 157 lb ( +0.5 lb) Not bad for a Monday!
    24 Sept- 156.5 lb ( -0.5 lb) Up, down, up, down, up, down..... As long as I still end up being down for this month, I'm happy!! Hopefully TOM won't screw it up too bad, cus it's around the same time... of course. I might hold off on my doing my "official" September loss weigh in total until after the TOM water weight comes back off.... super frustrating. I had to do the same thing last month lol Oh well. Life goes on!
    25 Sept- 156.5 lb ( 0 ) 5 days to lose 1.5 lbs??? Making my goal is possible... but not likely at this rate lol
    26 Sept- no weigh day
    27 Sept- 155.5 lb ( -1 lb) Yay!!
    28 Sept- no weigh day
    29 Sept- no weigh day
    30 Sept- 155.5 lb......... -3.5lb / -4lb goal. Not bad!! I will take it and be proud :) Bring on October!

    I turn 40 years old this month and I was really wanting to be at 140, but I don't see that happening. Maybe by the end of the month I can hit that goal.

    Starting weight: 178
    Start weight this month: 143.6
    Goal weight this month: 140 and to continue to drop my trend weight
    Target goal weight: 135

    May gained 1.1 pounds (EW - 149.3)
    June lost: 3.4 pounds (EW - 145.9)
    July lost: 2.2 pounds (EW - 143.7)
    August lost: 0.1 pounds (EW - 143.6) complete wash for the month


    1 September - NW - FIL Funeral in Texas 4 days
    2 September - NW - FIL Funeral in Texas 4 days
    3 September - 148.7 we are back and I am up about 5 pounds. I am sure a lot of water weight. Very stressful time.
    4 September 146.9 at least it went down. Did ok yesterday, but my motivation is not great at the moment. I need about a week of sleep right now.
    5 September - 145.1 Still working my way back down
    6 September - 145.1 wish it was a couple of pounds lower, but I'll take it. Haven't tried at all this week. kind of took a diet break!
    7 September - 143.8
    8 September - 144.5 not enough water yesterday. Tons of movement, cleaning, laundry, and tons of errands all day.
    9 September - 147.0 I thought I did better than this yesterday, but I guess not. Maybe I am just holding onto some water weight.
    10 September - 146.5 was expecting to be lower, but ok with this. I am 40 years old today!!!
    11 September - 143.8 not a real number. Drank way to much last night celebrating my bday. Will be back up tomorrow.
    12 September - 145.6 This sounds more like it. As of today I am back on it and looking to finally lose the last 10 pounds. Diet break officially over
    13 September - 143.8 On track for today so far. Maybe next week I can start seeing some lower numbers
    14 September - 143.2 this is the lowest this month so far. Still have about a pound to go to get back to where I was last month and now it’s the ever so dreaded weekend.
    15 September - 144.8 maybe sodium, but did well yesterday
    16 September -146.3 TOM is showing up today and the chips and dip I decided to snack on all day probably didn't help.
    17 September - 146.3 Day 2 and feel like crap. Major water retention, my ring barely fit this am
    18 September - 145.7 a little movement, not much though. Hormones will be the death of me!
    19 September - 143.7 finally a whoosh. Now maybe I will see a decent drop tomorrow.
    20 September - 142.8 another great drop. I’m back to where I was before month long break. Now to get some progress made and get under 140!
    21 September - 143.7 up a bit today from restaurant sodium. Chinese for a surprise lunch date with the hubby.
    22 September - 143.7 drank to much yesterday so will probably be up tomorrow a bit, did well on food though.
    23 September -145.4 normal Monday fluctuation. Lower than last Monday so I am ok with it.
    24 September - 144.3 and back down we go. Really looking to finish this month strong. It sucks the last day is a Monday this month.
    25 September - 140.9 I weighed multiple times this morning. I did a 24 hour fast yesterday and only ate about 600 calories, so I am sure I will have a bounce up. I would be happy ending the month at 141 or 140 though.
    26 September - 142.0 I knew I would go up a bit, but it's really only 1.1 pounds, so I am not going to complain.
    27 September - 142.0 just a couple more ounces and I will make my goal for this month!
    28 September - 140.9 another low calorie day and not enough water. It will probably bounce back up a bit tomorrow. Need to stay good through the darn weekend!
    29 September - 140.9 I may end the month today, but super stoked! Today the Cowboys play and it’s going to be a rough day. Happy with this month though!
    30 September - 145.9 not using this weight as my end of he month one. I am using the 140.9 as my month end. Didn't want to cheat and not be accountable for my actions yesterday, but I obviously didn't gain 5 pounds since yesterday. I did have a blast though and drink way way to much. On to October and hopefully get into a new decade. I dropped my trend weight almost 3 pounds this month and lost 2.7 pounds.

    Feeling a bit annoyed - my quite new set of scales is on the blink. For the last couple of days, it's been weighing all over the place from one minute to the next.

    It has a new battery, and on a hard, flat surface, but just not behaving.

    I'm a bit disappointed to not be able to officially weigh in for the end of the month, but happy with my progress anyway - I was on track, and I have noticed some clothes fitting differently, so that's good.

    I'll be returning to scales for repair/replacement, so will join in another challenge thread when that's sorted - I found it really helpful to keep me focussed.

    11 September - 166.6 lbs - as someone said earlier, better late than never!
    12 September - 166.0 lbs - Hanging in there. I'm going for my last camping trip of the summer tonight and won't be able to weigh in again until Monday. In the meantime, I am going to do my best and try to see a loss on Monday. Wish me luck! :smiley:
    13 September - No weigh in
    14 September - No weigh in
    15 September - 162.6 lbs - I feel like I am being pranked. How is that even possible? I’ll probably step on the scale tomorrow and it will all be back. 🤣 We will see I guess! I managed to get on the scale a day earlier than I thought! Woohoo!
    16 September - 164.2 lbs (-2.4 lbs) - Hey, I will take it. :)
    17 September - 164.2 lbs - I’m ok with that because I have a serious migraine and haven’t been able to move since yesterday afternoon without wanting to be sick. I’m just going to sleep a lot today.
    18 September - 164.8 lbs - That’s what I get for giving up soda and dealing with migraines for two days.
    19 September - 165.4 lbs - ... ... I am not even sure what to say. I've been so good this week, no extra sugar, no going over my calorie goal... and I'm still up. :'(
    20 September - 164.0 lbs - It’s Friday!!! Hallelujah!
    21 September - 164.0 lbs
    22 September - 164.4 lbs, that extra slice of zucchini bread didn’t do me justice! Lol!
    23 September - 163.8 lbs - we are starting to get somewhere! (That 15 mile bike ride and 3 mile walk helped! LOL) I am also celebrating one week with no soda, no candy, one brownie but nothing else! I am so excited and I think that the headaches and crappy side effects are gone now!
    24 September - 163.2 lbs
    25 September - 162.0 lbs - I’m taking it easy today. I had a horrible night terror last night and only managed 3-4 hours of “sleep”. I’m so exhausted, I’m tempted to break my no soda streak just to get through the day...
    26 September - 161.8 lbs - I made it though the day yesterday with no soda, so my streak is unbroken. I anticipated a gain because I ate a little over my calorie allotment and I barely moved because I was so tired but that didn’t happen. 😁 I’m just going to take that as a win and try to get back on track today.
    27 September - 161.6 lbs - I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop... lol!
    28 September - 162.4 lbs - there’s that other shoe! 🤣 Honestly though, I am super happy because we went to a buffet for dinner last night for my brother-in-laws birthday and I didn’t stuff myself and I didn’t pig out on the sugar afterwards. All in all, I will take it. Just no more gaining please. Lol!
    29 September - 162.4 lbs - Hey, I did say no more gaining so I can’t complain. 😜 Another plus, today is two weeks with no soda! I’ve had only water these last two weeks except for one 6 oz glass of moscato the other night. I’m so proud of myself! I never thought I would break the sugar cycle.
    30 September - 161.8 lbs - I did it!

    Total loss for the month: 4.8 lbs


    well done! You did great this month...

    03 Sep- 159 lb. Feeling good!! Might still be holding water weight from TOM.
    04 Sep- 160.5 lb ( + 1.5 lb) ??? Not sure why the spike. I felt pretty dehyrated yesterday so I am making it a point to drink more water today. Maybe that's why. Just have to wait and see!
    05 Sep- 160 lb ( -0.5 lb) TOM weight is tappering off I think.
    06 Sep- no weigh day (NA)
    07 Sep- no weigh day (NA)
    08 Sep- 159.5 lb ( -1 lb) Heck yeah! The scale might not say I have lost anything this month so far.... But I feel like I have! Not sure what the deal is.... oh well. Just gonna keep on it and see what happens
    09 Sep- 159.5 lb ( 0 )
    10 Sept- 159.5 lb ( 0 ) I think my scale has gone on strike lol
    11 Sept- 158 lb ( -1.5 lb) WHOOP THERE IT IS!!!! I had a feeling I was going to see a drop soon *happy dance*
    12 Sept- 158.5 lb ( +0.5lb ) Does "slow and steady wins the race" apply here?? Lol I hope so.
    13 Sept- no weigh day (NA)
    14 Sept- no weigh day (NA)
    15 Sept- no weigh day (NA)
    16 Sept- 158.5 lb ( 0 ) Errrrrrmmmmm. I need to start doing better if I want to get to -4 lbs!! I'm only at -0.5 lbs and we are over halfway through the month. *sighs*
    17 Sept- 159.5 lb ( +1 lb ) FML
    18 Sept- No weigh day (NA
    19 Sept- 157.5 lb ( -2 lb) Getting there. Frustrating ups & downs... but overall heading in the right direction..slowly.
    20 Sept- 156.5 lb (-1 lb) I was really good lastnight about not snacking on my kid's dinner... Trying out a new thing where I chew gum while preparing it. Can't snack with gum in my mouth lol Seems to be working.
    21 Sept- no weigh day
    22 Sept- no weigh day
    23 Sept- 157 lb ( +0.5 lb) Not bad for a Monday!
    24 Sept- 156.5 lb ( -0.5 lb) Up, down, up, down, up, down..... As long as I still end up being down for this month, I'm happy!! Hopefully TOM won't screw it up too bad, cus it's around the same time... of course. I might hold off on my doing my "official" September loss weigh in total until after the TOM water weight comes back off.... super frustrating. I had to do the same thing last month lol Oh well. Life goes on!
    25 Sept- 156.5 lb ( 0 ) 5 days to lose 1.5 lbs??? Making my goal is possible... but not likely at this rate lol
    26 Sept- no weigh day
    27 Sept- 155.5 lb ( -1 lb) Yay!!
    28 Sept- no weigh day
    29 Sept- no weigh day
