Hiya from Europe 👋
I've been experimenting with this in August and found it disheartening to be out of Winers Circle relatively soon. 3 passes are not much; 28 days of behaving are a lot! It means taking each day seriously and not slipping off!
I'll make a little experiment: I set my goal on maintaining (though I intend to lose back about 5-7lb) and plan to not eat all my calories back. It's merely for the mental impact and basically the same of setting MFP on losing and eating back everyhing.
September was a month of sort of resting, but I need to get back to working out hard, since this is what kept me sane during the whole pandemic. I just need to take the time to work out during the day and not when everyone's sleeping. Its enough already that I workout from home or that I give the kids a chance to bike along when I'm running. Weather permitting, weekend are family active time: hikes, biking tours, high ropes courses...
I felt like a quitter in September and missed the lovely team I found here. I did quite well, given that I focused on other aspects. Gained at most 3.3 lbs. Yet, I want to be back in the team❣Let's give October a chance!

Happy pre-birthday Dave.
This is my first time in a group challenge. For the past two months, I've been doing the monthly plank challenge in the main forums. My elbows were displeased but bore through it.
My weight-loss/body fat lowering progress was halved in the past month. While I realize I'm quite close to maintenance, my goal for this challenge is to see if accountability and a smidgen less food can get me back to my previous rate of body fat loss.
OCT Exercise: Kettlebell (KB) workout program, daily walking, stair climbing and random calisthenics.
OCT Nutrition: Hit my protein macro (40%) at least once a week 😭 Not surpass my carb and/or fat macros more than 3x a week 😪

I been lurking this group for a while thinking about getting back to it.
The necessity is kind of approaching. I am only like 3 or so pounds above my GW but that 3 pounds is what is still left of my last winters weight gain.
Yeah. Just now coming off of last winter's weight and it is getting ready to be winter again.
When I am well behaved dietarily my wife does better. We got kind of a goal of 300 pounds between the 2 of us. That is because the air mattresses we camp on have that as a weight limit. That is a pretty weird motivator I guess.
I exercised pretty good over the summer. Got 5 months in a row of merit badges for bicycle climb. Yeah, that don't pan out in winter... less exercise and more party equals winter weight gain.
