    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.
    October 15 - 159.5 - Half a month yet, Thanksgiving leftovers mostly finished. Time to lose some weight : - )
    October 16 - 158.7 - just 2 pounds up from October 7th now.
    October 17 - 158.2
    October 18 - 159.2

    From Monday to Thursday, my calorie average was 1300 so I don't quite understand - I know I do not drink nearly enough water (2 to 4 cups) and I have been focusing on slow strength training.

    I'm happy to be back at 125. The last 10 lbs are proving to be difficult to lose but as the saying goes "Slow and steady wins the race."

    [Side Note: I have been able to do 32 sit-ups (4x8 reps) for a week now. I had been working 3x 8 reps for a good while. My husband has to hold my feet, lol, but I can do them. :D ]

    Progress! Let's keep it up!

    Leg Day:
    Warm-Up
    Squats, 3x10
    Lunges, 3x10
    Glute Extension, 3x10, 10lbs
    Leg Extension, 3x10, 10 lbs
    Leg Press, 3x10, 10 lbs

    Arm Day:
    Warm-Up
    Lateral Raise, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Overhead Press, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Bench Dips, 1x10
    Extension, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Curl, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Flat Fly, 1x10, 3 lbs
    Kneeling Push Up, 1x10
    Lat Pulldown, 1x10, 10 lbs

    Thank you Donna @deepwoodslady. According to my keto calculator, I am on track to lose 3.7lbs this month. We shall see. It will be good to return to the 170's and this time around get OUT of the 170's!

    October Loss ~

    Thoughts: Oh yeah. I've been way off my game. First had sick granddaughter to take care of, then I picked up her cooties. Eating's off. Haven't hit my exercise routine for a week. The weight has been bouncing a bit, but the 10 day average is steady, so that's a plus. I was actually back down to 147.0 this morning.

    Feeling better, and big activity day today. Our 30 year old shed was getting close to collapse, so it was demolished this morning. I got 2.5 hours of moderate cardio sorting thru the contents - bagging trash, getting stuff we're keeping ready to haul to a storage unit, and setting aside some for my son and daughter in-law. Major accomplishment - and my Fitbit showed decent cardio and peak heart rates!

    October Game Plan & Goals: (Use stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Move to 2-week meal plans - Need to start writing them down
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • No calorie intake before 11am, edging towards noon for a 16:8 IF
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 2328 ⬇ Fitbit was on charger a full day
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 0 ↔
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day Off schedule 👀

    Strength Training:
    Squats, lunges, push-ups (elevated), arm circles, side bends, & tricep lifts. Adding planks and transitioning regular push-ups to scapula push-ups.
    • 10/1-4 - 50, 50, 50, Rest ✔
    • 10/5-8 - 50, 50, 50, Rest ✔
    • 10/9-12 - 50, 50, 50, Rest ✔
    • 10/13-18 - missed
    • 10/19 - 2.5 hour cardio day ✔
    • 10/20-23 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/24-27 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/28-31 - 50, 50, 50, Rest

    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: 142.2 (10-day average 142.4)
    October 28 -
    October 30 -

    Checking in a day early this week because I'm going to be on a tight schedule tomorrow morning. I kind of want to just wait and post a day late because I want to report a "better" number :smile:

    Total loss for October: Scale says I lost 2.8 pounds, and ten-day average says I GAINED one pound. I should be ok with this because I am below my set goal and right in my maintenance range. I am still considering lowering my goal range by a few pounds, but it won't be easy, especially when my mass is going UP.

    How tall are you? What is your age? How did you come up with your ultimate goal range?
    Mine was by calipers and charts, but you seem pretty cutting edge with the stats, so I would like to hear your take please : - )
