    @tracimckinney I don't really have a mental game persay, but as I start to see lower numbers, mentally I shift to seeing the new highs and lows as just that. A few months ago, 145 seemed like such a huge feat to make it to, but this month that has transitioned to being a "heavy" day. Hoping that pretty soon I feel that way about 140....then 135.....then 130 LOL

    @weatherking2019 - that workout looks brutal! Thanks for posting the graphic - gave me some ideas to work on.
    @HoneyBadger155 - outstanding progress!
    @l4a_p - I totally feel ya on the emotional eating this month. Oh sure, I'll have another glass of wine - why the hell not? Life sucks anyway, my body hurts... I don't care if I'm fat. (I swear I'm done whining).. LOL!

    30, 5'6"

    SW: 69,3kg
    GW: 63kg

    Goal #1: Try to only lose 250g - 500g per week * aka : adjust cals over 7 days to match if possible - TRIED - in progress
    Goal #2: Start StrongLift - DONE

    Oct 04 : 69,3kg
    Oct 11 : 68,8 kg (-0,5kg) - 1 week @1500cals + w/o and being active
    Oct 18 : 67,8 kg (-1,0kg) - week @1650 cals + w/o and being active
    Oct 25 : 67,0 kg (-0,8kg) - week @1750 cals + workouts and walking
    Oct 31 : 66,7 kg (-0,3kg) - stayed @1750 cals + workouts and walking


    This week I got TOM. I never really tracked the changes in weight and bloating before now. I am still not paying too much attention to it and just logging the data.

    I took my monthly measurements and got very small changes. I am still a bit bloated but I feel so good in general that I am just going to log numbers as they are when I take them and focus on the trend overtime.

    This month has really shown me a lot of successes, and I am really happy about managing my expectations and keep upping the calories. I shall continue to do that until I am really close to maintenance.

    Very happy with my big "woosh" this month and keeping the losses steady (with my normal trends considered). Trusting the process finally paying off, I have not consistently been this low since 2012!!

    Onward! Would like to see consistent 13x's next month!

    @Go_Deskercise I’m going as a hot mess. Which un-coincidentally is the same costume I wore yesterday... :smile:

    My youngest is going as a slice of pizza and my husband got a t-shirt that says, Pizza Delivery Guy. I’m sorta jealous of both costumes.

    @Cora0477 I'm pretty much a hot mess runner since I planned it 20 min before leaving for work. Then I got an alert on my way to work that someone wanted to see our house (in the process of selling) so I had to run back home, straighten up and get the dogs. One is with me at work and the other is at my mother in laws until noon when I have to get him because she has to leave at 12:30

    Your husband and sons's costume sounds great!!
