    Really wanting to get to my goal and maintain between 135-138 by Thanksgiving. I am losing so slow these days though and it may take me till Christmas. My weigh in days will be Wednesday and hopefully I can finish the month at least 2 pounds down (which will be at the top of my maintenance weight). Not aiming for huge losses these days, just trying to make life changes that I will be able to sustain in the long run.


    October Start Weight: 140.9 = 9/30 weigh in
    October Goal Weight: 138.5 = this will put me at a 40 lb loss
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 135

    Oct 1: 146.5 Monday weigh in so doesn't really count. I also started a new medication on Saturday and am retaining a ton of water. I was just at 140.9 on Friday and Saturday.
    Oct 2: 143.9 already getting back to normal. Hate water retention
    Oct 9: 143.6 lower, but was really hoping for more. This is after a 3 day weekend and a bit of a fall. So I will take it.
    Oct 16: 140.9 back down to my end weight last month. Now hoping for some progress in the next 2 weeks
    Oct 23: 143.9 sore so I think this is water retention

    Oct 30: 140.7 I have lost an entire 2/10 of a pound in the month of October. Not my greatest, lol.

    Oct 29:170 Not to bad considering 10 hours of driving to visit family and Halloween parties over the weekend. I thought it would be much worse.
    Oct 31: 171

    Ended the same as I started. Ugh! At least I didn't gain. I spent to much of this last week in the car and not working out. I will have to switch up somethings for November.

    Original start weight: 271.9 (May 23, 2019)
    October Start Weight: 248
    October Goal Weight: below 240 (so, anywhere in the 239s)
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 165

    Oct 1: 248.0

    Oct 8: 247.6 traveled to a different state for a wedding (at a winery) over the weekend and have been celebrating my birthday and our anniversary with my husband. Think this is a false high due to banquet food and wine.

    Oct 15: 244.4. Down 3.2 from last week, 3.6 somfar this minth, and 27.5 from official start. This weight is up a little after pizza night last night. And don’t worry about the 3lbs drop in one week, last week was a false high due to water weight, this weigh-in is right on the line for HappyScale. Still a little ways to go to be out of the 240s by the end of the month, definitely need to go out walking again...but when? After work is tough.

    Oct 27: 241.8 for a total loss of 30lbs and a challenge loss of 6.2. Back up today due to tailgating yesterday and 3 days of late night dinners screwing up my digestive patterns. But I survived back to back 13 hour days for conferences and have Thursday off and a 6 day “no students” weekend. The team has a bye this next weekend, so I will actually get to spend Saturday with my husband instead of standing in a parking lot in the cold. Looking forward to that!

    Oct 31: 242.6 Went out for Mexican last night, complete with margaritas, queso, guacamole, and chips. 10/10, will do again. 5.4 lost in October.

    Oct 30: 140.7 I have lost an entire 2/10 of a pound in the month of October. Not my greatest, lol.

    Oct 31: 140.7 So I am finishing the month pretty much where I started. My moving average is down 2.2 pounds in the last 31 days, so there's a win and I am smack in the middle of a healthy BMI. The last couple of pounds may take me a long time to lose, but I will just keep working at them. I only have 2 pounds to lose to be at the top of my maintenance and 5 to be on the low end of it. Good job everyone!
