    Well I've about had it with this month. Everything started to settle down after stopping breastfeeding and then BAM mother nature slaps me with my first period post pregnancy and all I can say is wow. So much bloating, cravings, cramps and misery. So now I'm just counting myself lucky if I maintain this month and hopefully my hard work will start paying off again soon. By far the most difficult weight loss weeks since I started in June.

    My name is Donna and I am 60 years old. I am from the Midwest USA. 5’ 5
    I will be keeping the Thursday weigh-in (in addition to the 1st and last day of the month for the full tally)
    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

    September start Weight: 211.1 (Weight on August 31, 2020)
    Sept Goal Weight: 205.1 (6 lb loss)
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 145-155 (I’ll know when I get there).


    Sept 01 : 211.6 Wrong way!
    Sept 08: 211.6 All progress made earlier in the week was lost over the holiday. Disappointed.
    Sept 15: 211.6 Gotta shake things up!
    Sept 22: 210.8 Finally under my starting weight. Got to get a grip and hang onto it.

    I would like to be a part of this challenge. I need to start participating and holding myself accountable and hopefully in the process starting to believe I can do it!

    Sept 9...I guess I did better than I thought, was pleasantly surprised by the scale this morning. I haven't been very mobile because of pain in my legs and hip, seeing a chiropractor but not helping yet, hope to do some walking this week. Thanks for the challenge, it helped me this past week for sure!
    Sept 16..I blew it over the week end and that is usually my signal to give up but I'm trying not to do that this time.
    Sept 23..Well, it's coming along, but I can't take credit for the loss. I am still trying to find out what's going on with my legs and hip, even the chiropractor can't help. Waiting for a cat scan. Thanks again for the challenge, it helps to keep me focused.

    Notes:
    Sep 23: I got a last minute invite to a friend's beachhouse rental for a long weekend. So per usual, I enjoyed myself immensely according to the scale. Seems like I've been losing the same 5-7lbs since August with these vacation weekends. Something I noted: my thin and fit friends can sample 1-2 pieces of candy/cookies or a few chips from a bowl and be done; I keep reaching into the bag/bowl and want to keep eating until it's done, or until the dopamine is exhausted (something I've always done). I wonder if it's a habit that I can eventually break, or is this behavior wired neurally in the same way that other addicts also feel compelled to keep drinking or taking drugs?

    Sep 15: A few days ago I hit my 100 day food logging streak on MFP! The food logging has definitely been the game changer in my health and weight loss journey. Some days I have a self-pity party thinking that I might have to do this for the rest of my life. On other days, I feel the control that I have over tracking food and calories is a small but positive action worth doing.

    Sep 8: I was very active over the long weekend, but also, ate lots of sodium laden & calorific foods. While I also had some cool NSV's over this past week, I'm noticing a trend that the weight is very slowly going up rather than down over the past few weeks. Time to nip that now and get focused on reaching my goal this month.

    Sep 1: In the August Weight Loss Challenge, I ended the challenge yesterday with scale readings of 155-157. This morning, I got readings of 150.5 and 152. I'm a broken record about my wonky scale, and at this point, I should probably just get a new scale. Ugh. Anyone have scale recommendations?

    So tomorrow is the official weigh-in day but as is my obsessive nature, I get weighed every day. This has been an awful week. Most days, including today I am at 137. I know this happens. I just hate it and can’t make sense of it. I have weighed every group of cherry tomatoes, counted every ounce of water, measured my vegetables in cups, not added sugar to anything, weighed my peaches and nectarines and assigned the appropriate calories. I’ve run 45 minutes every day, had some good times, done my aerobics daily. Walked more steps. I just don’t know how I have gained 6.5lbs. Even though I read it could be water weight, hormones (I do have my period). I just hate the scale some days....

    And so today was 135.5lbs. which means a gain of a pound during September. Which means...today is a new day, right? Sigh.

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    August 31 starting weight - 145.8 (10-day average 145.5)
    September goal - 144
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight), and I post on Saturdays.


    August 31: 145.8 (10-day average 145.5)
    September 5: 143.2 (10-day average 145.6)
    September 12: 142.8 (10-day average 144.5)
    September 19: 146.0 (10-day average 142.9)
    September 26: 144.0 (10-day average 143.3)
    September 30:


    Total loss for September: About a pound, and I'm really close to my goal weight. My ten-day average actually dipped below my goal from last Friday through this Wednesday, was right at goal Thursday, and up the last couple days.
