    I have a busy weekend ahead with dinner out with friends on Saturday and a date night wine maker's dinner on Sunday. I am a little worried about all of the food/drinks out but I am trying to remind myself that this is about establishing and maintaining a lifestyle in the long run and not putting my life on hold while I lose weight. I will log honestly, balance where I can and enjoy the weekend's adventures!

    Prelogging really helps me in other ways.

    I almost always have my next day prelogged the night before. I meal plan for the week so I know what dinner is going to be. I also always have a premier protein shake for breakfast and pack my lunch the night before. So all I really log at spur of the moment is snacks and sides or if something needs to be weighed. Prelogging helps tremendously!

    November goals - get outside and hike as much as possible
    Stay within calorie goals, no more than 30% of exercise calories
    SLEEP at least 8 hours a night

    I love that you list getting regular sleep as one of your goals.
    It is so important!

    Congratulations on restarting! You can do it!

    Age 61 / height 5' 4.5"

    8/13/2021 - 298.8 (SW & ATH)

    11/5/2021- 277.8

    I will be in Hawaii 🌴 (on Kauai,  cannot wait) from Nov 7-18th so unable to weigh in then - seriously considered bringing the ⚖ but too heavy! I normally weigh in almost daily but will record on Fridays.

    November goals-
    [v] Get Fitbit charged & synced and start tracking steps - DONE!
    [  ] Go for minimum 15 minute walk each day when at home (will do a ton more on vacation!)
    [  ] Get my water in, minimum 6 glasses, especially while away
    [  ] Continue tracking food daily, making  best guesses & choices while away
    [  ] Get right back on track once home
    [  ] November Weight Loss Goal- 275

    Getting pretty excited about my trip! In line for COVID-19 testing as I type 😆

    Thank you @goal06082021 both very helpful points! Definitely going to try to prep my lunches at least, it's daytime that I struggle with more as it's just me at home and obviously have my baby girl to look after! Often end up just grabbing things that are easy, so meal prepping would be ideal.

    Day one has gone okay anyway, had a healthy dinner whilst my husband ordered pizza. Unfortunately for me, he has the metabolism of a cheetah.

    It's FTMF (Face the Music Friday)

    40 y/o. 6'0" tall
    SW: 277.7
    November 1: 232
    November goal: 226
    Ultimate goal weight: 180-185(ish)

    I weigh in on Fridays
    11/5:230.2 (-1.8)
    11/26: (I will not be weighing in this day. I'll be in Mexico)

    This week was just kind of "meh." I've slacked on the exercise (it's getting colder outside, and I'm not wild about exercising inside...but I'm going to have to get that way), but have maintained my deficit.
    I'm anxiously awaiting a trip at the end of the month, and I'm stressing clothes/a bathing suit. There's NOTHING in the stores, and I don't have much that fits.

    @TheKookyKiwi what a cute, fuzzy, face! Are you in New Zealand? Welcome!

    Good luck, @Deanner03 ! I imagine it would be a tough time to find a bathing suit. Congrats on nothing you have fitting, though...?
