    10/28 - 172.2 good thing I've been running lol, probably water retention. Zumba tonight, and probably a walk.

    Hi : - )
    I am Dawn, 60, 5'2"
    MFP Start weight October 28.18 191 pounds
    UGW - 112-118

    I was on another monthly challenge for a couple of years, but it hasn't been updated since July, so I was looking for another. Thank you for creating this @cachoey
    I weigh daily, it keeps me accountable.

    Week 1
    10/1 -
    10/2 - 143.5
    10/3 - 143.5
    10/4 - 143.5 - I normally fluctuate like crazy, so this staying at the same weight for 3 days is new to me.
    10/5 - 143.1 - Good to see a slight drop. I was 141.0 in September, so trying to get back to that...and beyond.
    10/6 - 142.1 - Getting back down to September's weight, working on it!
    10/7 - 141.5 - I don't really want to count this first week as a weight loss, since I am still up (slightly) from September. Gaining weight and then losing that same weight is not weight loss to me. Onward : - )
    Week 2
    10/8 - 139.6 - New low for me, yay!
    10/9 - 141.3 - I am fine with this number. I hope to touch the 130s again this month : - )
    10/10 - 142.3 - I had hoped for a lower number as I go into 3 days of a feeding frenzy of Canadian Thanksgiving. I am particularly fond of gravy and stuffing. I will still be working out.
    10/11 - 142.6 - No big gain yet from seasonal foods
    10/12 - 143.0 - One more thanksgiving meal tonight
    10/13
    10/14
    Week 3
    10/15 - 143.6 - Time to get serious and bring this number down.
    10/16 - 142.1 - I actually went back to bed this morning and weighed 141.2 when I woke up, but I will stay with the former number because it was at a time when I normally get up.
    10/17 - 143.6 - Bad food choices yesterday
    10/18
    10/19 -
    10/20 - 142.9
    10/21 - 141.8 - Always good to see the scale go down.
    Week 4
    10/22 - 141.9 - I hit 141.0 Sept 20, and ended September at 141.7, so I am still in the gain margin
    10/23 - 141.2 - Getting back to my September numbers now, I had hoped to be into the 130s this month.
    10/24 - 140.6 - So much better.
    10/25 - 141.2 - I'm good with that, but I don't want to go over the 141s again!
    10/26 - 141.2 - Striving to get that .2 off before Wednesday weigh-in
    10/27 - 140.6 - Slept in, so maybe not an accurate number.
    10/28 - 139.6 - My 2 year anniversary of joining MFP at 191 pounds. Down 51.4 : - )
    Final Week
    10/29 - 140.2 - Yes, I celebrated weight loss by eating silly things.

    @cachoey Thank you for creating this challenge!!! Similar to @dawnbgethealthy , I was also a part of another group. Happy to join!

    At the end of July, I reached my UGW of 110 lbs. Since then I've been trying to maintain under 115 lbs and try to start gaining muscle.
    Progress Pics - 2 years and 8 months of hard work: http://imgur.com/a/g5I6KaG

    MFP Starting Weight: 147.4 - Nov 2017
    Aug starting weight: 110
    Sept starting weight: 113.8
    October starting weight: 113.8
    October goal: Maintenance under 115 lbs
    Height: 5'
    Age: 31

    Week 1
    10/1 - 113.8
    10/2 - 113.6
    10/3 - 114
    10/4 - 114
    10/5 - 114.6 ... 30% BF ... Navy Method: Waist, Neck, Hips
    10/6
    10/7

    Week 2
    10/8
    10/9 - 114.4
    10/10
    10/11 - 116.2
    10/12 - 116 ... No BF recorded
    10/13 - 115.6
    10/14 - 114.6

    Week 3
    10/15 - 115.6
    10/16 - 115.2
    10/17 - 116
    10/18 - 115.4
    10/19 - 115.8 ... 31% BF
    10/20 - 116.4
    10/21

    Week 4
    10/22 - 116.4
    10/23 - 116.8
    10/24 - 116.8
    10/25 - 116.6
    10/26 - 116.2 ... 30% BF... I've been somewhat content with measurements (except hips) because I first reached 30% BF at 111.2 lbs weigh-in on 6/29/20. This month, I've been trying to do at least 6k+ steps and two 30 min strength training sessions a week.
    10/27 - 115.4 ... I used to track calories daily but mostly stopped during Sept to now. Trying to start again.
    10/28 - 115

    Final Week
    10/29 - 116.4 ... Ouch! Last night, I had burrito bowl along with chips and queso for dinner, estimated 1750 cals for the whole day but perhaps the sodium at dinner had a bigger impact then I anticipated.

    10/25 - 141.2 - I'm good with that, but I don't want to go over the 141s again!
    10/26 - 141.2 - Striving to get that .2 off before Wednesday weigh-in
    10/27 - 140.6 - Slept in, so maybe not an accurate number.
    10/28 - 139.6 - My 2 year anniversary of joining MFP at 191 pounds. Down 51.4 : - )
    Final Week
    10/29 - 140.2 - Yes, I celebrated weight loss by eating silly things.
    10/30 - 140.5

    10/7- 267.0 staying even so far, still struggling to log food
    week1 thoughts- pretty sure i was up a couple over the weekend so I'm pretty happy to be even. I need to log my food and be accountable, so that's one area I plan to work on. I get 8000-10000 steps a day everyday so that is probably helping me not gain. On to week 2.

    10/18…208.2 Jumping in now since Lose 5lbs + is on sick leave. Thanks for offering this challenge. Nice to see some familiar faces!
    10/19…207.4 Yay!
    10/20…207.0 Made myself stop snacking last night. It wasn’t easy but I reminded myself that I wasn’t actually hungry. Old habits!
    10/21…206.2 Come on 205 !!!!!!!
    Week 4
    10/22…207.6 Wrong direction but still showing a loss this month. Today I will be more diligent.
    10/23…206.8 Still going strong…..I love good days!
    10/24…207.8 The struggle is real.
    10/25…208.2 This too shall pass! (but not tomorrow or the next day as I travel tomorrow).
    10/26…208.2 Still better than the beginning of the month, but I can do much better.
    10/27…210.4 After-Travel weight. Today I will reconcile.
    10/28…209.2 What a roller coaster ride the journeys can be!
    Final Week
    10/29…207.9 Working it down but could make better choices.
    10/30…208.4 Eating in the middle of the night and then weighing early AM is not recommended.
