    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
    October 19 - 156.9 - 9 days until my 1 year since starting. I was hoping for 40 pounds in a year, but at least I am getting close.
    October 20 - 157.5
    October 21 - 158.5

    October Loss ~

    Thoughts: Back on my game. Scale is bouncing around a bit, expect some of it is fluid gain after big yard work day.

    You may have noticed I flipped age from 61 to 62. Yep, it's my birthday 🎂 No big plans. Had to work. Might slip something in later this week, but I don't want to center any celebration on food. Maybe a drive & walk to enjoy fall change of color.

    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 - 3709 ⬆ Fitbit was on charger a full day
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 23 ⬆
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day Back on track 😏

    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 ✔ Next: 50, Rest
    • 10/24-27 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/28-31 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
