    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    September 30 starting weight - 139.4 (ten-day rolling average weight 141.4)
    October goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

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

    September 30 - 139.4 (141.4)
    October 7 - 139.2 (10-day average 140.0)
    October 14 - 144.4 (10-day average 141.1)
    October 21 -
    October 28 -
    October 30 -

    Total loss for October: Scale says I gained over pounds, and ten-day average says a little more than a pound.

    I did really well in September, and I held steady the first two weeks in October. Except the last couple days. I gave myself permission to splurge as I had been below goal, but now that's got to stop.

    Female, age 59, 5'3" (probably only 5'2" by now)
    Starting weight was October 28, 2018 - 191
    Long term goal 112-115
    October 28.2019 goal - 151

    1st day back to my scale. I don't know what my starting point was for the month, I will use the 7th.

    October 07 - 156.7 - Hard to believe that I actually lost weight on my vacation to Dallas, what with Texas bbq, Taquieras, Margaritas etc. Mind you, I ice skated almost every day. Very pleased.
    October 08 - 160.3 - That gain in one days seems kind of crazy since I had good workouts and was well within my eating levels. Perhaps I had been dehydrated from the flights and am hydrated again.
    October 09 - 159.3
    October 10 - 159.9
    October 11 - 159.6
    October 12 - 158.0
    October 13 - 158.1 - Thanksgiving dinner tonight, but going to eat very light beforehand to save up calories for stuffing and gravy etc.
    October 14 - 159.8 - This could go up a little more still as all of that fabulous food and drink settles in.

    Original starting weight – 253
    October starting weight – 194.2
    October goal – 187.0
    Ultimate goal – 145 to 155 (We’ll see when we get closer)


    01 - 194.2 first weigh-in after a day of travel.
    07 – 187.2 traveling today & Wednesday. I hope I don’t wipe out all the progress.
    14 – 190.0 Travel kills me.

    Good things this week
    I intentionally exercised twice and me tmy step goal every day.

    My eating habits during the work week were good.

    I didn't eat chips the afternoon of our thanksgiving meal.

    I've scheduled an appointment with a counsellor to talk about my anxiety /stress in dealing with my son.

    Not so great stuff
    My eating fell apart when we went for supper Friday night. I did have a salad but we also ordered a bread type appetizer.

    I hosted Thanksgiving yesterday so I need to restrain my self with leftovers.

    I had my physical and my blood pressure was hovering around 140/95. So weird for me because until my third pregnancy, I was never over 90/60 and I had low blood pressure issues. I still have to do blood work and I know cholesterol will be high too.

    So...... how’s everyone doing this month?
    Are you all happy with your progress?

    I’m super proud of you all :)


    Is everyone looking forward to Halloween? Or dreading it?

    I personally was dreading it, I have a major sweet tooth!! but then I got to thinking.. my son doesnt.. he’s 4, and prefers fruit over sweets anyday! So I decided to take him to a Halloween party (for children) at one of the local pubs (family friendly pub btw lol) instead of trick or treating this year.
    Mostly because he doesn’t eat enough sweets to get through the amount he gets, so I end up eating them too :o
    My family are putting together some little goody bags for him though, so he won’t be going without his Halloween supply lol.

    Anyone else with small children and not sure how to avoid the sugar craze?

    Or does sweet treats simply not bother you?

    Share some ideas and stories, you never know who they could be helping out :) xx

    I'm American, but live in the Middle East. My kids don't know what Halloween is. Poor kids. Just nothing much here happens for it. 🤦🤦🤦
