    October
    Initial Starting Weight: 225.2
    October Starting Weight: 205.5
    October Goal Weight: 200.6
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 180.0

    Me again, I weigh every day due to heart failure and fluid issues. I am finally making a daily weight check part of my morning routine (It had been doctors advice for a couple of years now but I just could not get in the routine of it)

    For reference, I am 55f, 5'11" tall, and August 1st got back to a low carb menu in my house after losing a bunch and gaining it back 2 years ago.

    OCTOBER GOALS (DAILY):
    ⚖️ Weigh in
    👟 Walk 5,500+ steps (Starting September 15th- nice to add something to the daily goal)
    1-205.5 Welcome October! Bought dance tickets for the 27th of October, so I will be looking for a costume for the first time in a couple of years, and I would like to meet my Oct goal by then.
    2-204.8 👟 1.1 km
    3-203.6 👟 1.5km
    4-202.8 👟 1.0 km
    5-203.0
    6-204.2 I slipped a little yesterday, skipping that tiny treadmill 1km and being sloppy with my eating, and didn't log my food. It is probably good that there is a bit of a gain to snap me back in line, even if it is maybe just a natural fluctuation lol
    7-203.2
    8-204.4 Losing the same couple of pounds repeatedly takes some of the rah-rah sis boom bah out of the :....has lost 1.4 pounds since her last weigh in..." I am going to stick to it though.
    9- 203.4 It is Thanksgiving Sunday here in Canada. I am up before 7am to get things started cooking. Have a great day everyone!
    10-203.4
    11-202.4 Not feeling great this morning. Maybe a bit of a cold coming on. -1C this morning outside
    12-203.0
    13-201.4 Unexpected. I will take it though lol
    14-203.8 Also unexpected lol. By the way I feel it is quite possible that the entire 2.4 pound gain is sitting in my sinuses. Blaaaah I feel awful.
    15-202.4
    16-203.0 Dear body. You are toying with my emotions. To show me that 201 3 days ago then just bounce around is cruel and unusual punishment. Stop it. I am logging my food, I am sticking to the plan. Just show it on the scale for goodness sakes. Grr.
    17-201.4 Begging works?!? lol
    18-200.8

    I’m glad to have this inspiring group of people to share this journey with!

    My October goals are the same as my September goals because those didn’t get met at all. September went sideways on me. I would like to get more movement in, especially on work days and more self care, 3 out of 7 days per week.

    OSW: 250 lbs
    UGW: 150 ish
    December 2022 GW: Onederland
    CW: 207.4 lb
    10/31 GW: 203 lb

    10/1: 207.4
    10/2: 209.4
    Yikes!
    10/3: 205.8
    I weighed myself 3 times. The body is a weird thing.
    10/4: 205.3
    Trying to catch up from all of last month’s drama. I could sleep for three days and still be tired!
    10/5: 205.3
    10/6: 205.1
    So far this months goals have not been being met unless you count an hour nap on Sunday as self care. I guess it is because I needed for my “self.” I’m actually not sure how to meet these goals. They are harder to do than expected.
    10/7: 204.0
    10/8: 204.3
    A manicure and shopping today after work.
    10/9: 205.3
    Salty takeout for dinner. It will come off. Self care yesterday, nails and shopping. Went to my usual plus sized store and am happy to report the last time I was there I was choosing between a 3x/4x (22-24) and yesterday I walked out of there with size 0 (Size 16) and likely will not need to shop there again (hopefully) ever. Definite NSV!
    10/10: 205.3
    10/11: 204.0
    10/12: 204.0
    10/13: 204.0
    10/14: 204.3
    It’s finally Friday!
    10/15: 204.0
    Ticked some more health markers off the list for my path to wellness yesterday, mammogram✅recheck bloodwork ✅. I’m left with an eye appointment and a spine appointment for the year. The rest of yesterday was spent doing self care aka shopping and laying on the couch. I’ll take it!
    10/16: 205.3
    Ugh! Not happy to see this but I know it’s just a bump in the road.
    10/17: 204.6
    My recheck bloodwork came back with a normal A1C but still elevated cholesterol. I’ve also got my blood pressure back to normal. I still have about 60 pounds to lose but my doctor and I talked extensively about my diet and she doesn’t think that’s what’s causing the cholesterol issue. It is likely genetic and something I can’t get away from. I really did not want to have to take a pill though. Ugh.
    10/18: 204
    Bloated, yuck.
    I’m going to try @girlsaint s method!
    Dear body: I am treating you right, better than I ever have before, can you please please drop 5 pounds (or just anything below 204) before I go crazy?

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 62 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    Weight in blue makes me blue because it’s a gain. Weight in fuchsia pink makes me feel cheery because it’s a loss. Weight in black means no change.

    10/17-200.6-(Trend Weight 200.2)- My scale weight was exactly the same after a long rainy travel yesterday. This also happened earlier this week. I think I am succeeding in making better restaurant choices when I’m on the road. I’m feeling pretty good about that.

    10/18-200.2-(Trend Weight 200.2)- Under calorie which is reflected on the scale. However, I am not proud of my food choices. Too many carbs! Too much “junk foods” even for meals and not enough healthy stuff. I usually make much better choices at home. I’ll work on that today. On another note, I would like to remind everyone that this is breast cancer awareness month. Please don’t forget to do a very good self-check and schedule your mammogram. It saves lives and your life is important! I hope you will also encourage all the men in your lives to remember their prostate screening.

    Heaviest 222 lbs
    Current. 207 lbs


    Daily Focus
    Weigh in everyday in October
    Stay under calorie goal 5 out of 7 days per week
    Exercise 4 days a week


    Oct 19 207 lbs - Weighed, Tracked, Under Calories, No Exercise. Got away from the scale for a couple of months and it really is my best accountability device. When I stop weighing it is easy to justify other bad habits.

    Hi there!
    My name is Ashley, I'm 35 years old, and in early 2021 I weighed 293 pounds.
    I have spent a good portion of this year in my maintenance range (160-165). However, after a big trip in September, I'm above it. Time to get back to under 165!

    October Start Weight: 172.2
    October Goal Weight: 165 or less

    October 1 - 172.2 (I ended September in a big fury of work related stress. Happy October 1! Looking forward to setting a positive tone for this month.)
    October 2 - 171.4 (Yesterday we biked over 40K in the mountains and today we are going to hike around 5K. The fall weather in Alberta is gorgeous right now.)
    October 3 - 171.4 (Worked from home, walked my dog at lunch, rode the Peloton after work, and then ate salad for supper. Good day.)
    October 4 - 172 (Started with an early morning call for work that got the adrenaline going. I'll walk at lunch and see how I feel after work to do more.)
    October 5 - 172.8 (Had a good day yesterday. Lots of steps and a Peloton ride.)
    October 6 - 171.8 (Flying to Toronto with my hubby and dog to visit some family for Canadian Thanksgiving.)
    October 7 - 170.2
    October 8 - 169.4
    October 9 - 168.2
    October 10 - 169.8 (On our flight home after a lovely visit with my MIL. We had a nice Thanksgiving meal last night. Missing her already.)
    October 11 - 169.8 (Tough day, put myself to bed right after work, husband convinced me to get up for a light supper. Got 10,000 steps at least and ate under on calories.)
    October 12 - 169.2 (Coming to terms with what I can do in limited time. Trying to find ways to make peace with that. Not everything can be a priority. For now I need to work on getting back to my maintenance range while maintaining a reasonable amount of mental health at work.)
    October 13 - 168.8 (Had a good chat with my boss this morning. Feeling a bit more grounded. Dinner out and a concert with friends tonight.)
    October 14 - 168.4 (Today was a whirlwind.. worked from home, went to an appointment, walked my dog, did some strength training, went for a beer, did grocery shopping, and cleaned. Tired!)
    October 15 - 170.2 (Busy day with brunch, coffee, a walk, and supper out.)
    October 16 - 171.8 (Not surprised at the effects of yesterday on the scale today. We are going out for a bike ride today.)
    October 17 - 169.6 (Yesterday's bike ride was amazing. Calories on track. Today was a busy day at work but it was another on track day.)
    October 18 - 169.6
    October 19 - 170 (Today is my third wedding anniversary. Unfortunately I have to travel for business but my husband and I went out for dinner last night and we will do a cooking class together Friday.)

    10/19-200.2-(Trend Weight 200.2)- Exactly the same. Probably because I did all the same right things, and all the same wrong things. Hair appt today. There will be plenty of sitting and lack of activity. I’ll try to make up for it on the exercise bike tonight for a bit. Can’t do much though until I go through the cardiac rehab. Waiting for insurance approval. Day 3 of snow here in my little neck of the woods.

    October
    Initial Starting Weight: 225.2
    October Starting Weight: 205.5
    October Goal Weight: 200.6
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 180.0

    Me again, I weigh every day due to heart failure and fluid issues. I am finally making a daily weight check part of my morning routine (It had been doctors advice for a couple of years now but I just could not get in the routine of it)

    For reference, I am 55f, 5'11" tall, and August 1st got back to a low carb menu in my house after losing a bunch and gaining it back 2 years ago.

    OCTOBER GOALS (DAILY):
    ⚖️ Weigh in
    👟 Walk 5,500+ steps (Starting September 15th- nice to add something to the daily goal)
    1-205.5 Welcome October! Bought dance tickets for the 27th of October, so I will be looking for a costume for the first time in a couple of years, and I would like to meet my Oct goal by then.
    2-204.8 👟 1.1 km
    3-203.6 👟 1.5km
    4-202.8 👟 1.0 km
    5-203.0
    6-204.2 I slipped a little yesterday, skipping that tiny treadmill 1km and being sloppy with my eating, and didn't log my food. It is probably good that there is a bit of a gain to snap me back in line, even if it is maybe just a natural fluctuation lol
    7-203.2
    8-204.4 Losing the same couple of pounds repeatedly takes some of the rah-rah sis boom bah out of the :....has lost 1.4 pounds since her last weigh in..." I am going to stick to it though.
    9- 203.4 It is Thanksgiving Sunday here in Canada. I am up before 7am to get things started cooking. Have a great day everyone!
    10-203.4
    11-202.4 Not feeling great this morning. Maybe a bit of a cold coming on. -1C this morning outside
    12-203.0
    13-201.4 Unexpected. I will take it though lol
    14-203.8 Also unexpected lol. By the way I feel it is quite possible that the entire 2.4 pound gain is sitting in my sinuses. Blaaaah I feel awful.
    15-202.4
    16-203.0 Dear body. You are toying with my emotions. To show me that 201 3 days ago then just bounce around is cruel and unusual punishment. Stop it. I am logging my food, I am sticking to the plan. Just show it on the scale for goodness sakes. Grr.
    17-201.4 Begging works?!? lol
    18-200.8
    19-202.4
    20-203.8 So yesterday I got up and did something I haven't done in forever. I got up and had a giant bowl of Special K with a banana cut up in it. 80 grams of carbohydrates before the day even started. stayed pretty good the rest of the day but did a little mindless eating just before bed. Rice cakes. Salty and crunchy but not potato chips. I expect this gain is fluid retention and will be mostly gone in less than a week. Back with the program today after this little wake up call lol

    Heaviest 222 lbs
    Current. 207 lbs


    Daily Focus
    Weigh in everyday in October
    Stay under calorie goal 5 out of 7 days per week
    Exercise 4 days a week


    Oct 19 207 lbs - Weighed, Tracked, Under Calories, No Exercise. Got away from the scale for a couple of months and it really is my best accountability device. When I stop weighing it is easy to justify other bad habits.
    Oct 20 207 lbs - weighed, tracked over calories. Strength trained. Went to bed early

    Hi there!
    My name is Ashley, I'm 35 years old, and in early 2021 I weighed 293 pounds.
    I have spent a good portion of this year in my maintenance range (160-165). However, after a big trip in September, I'm above it. Time to get back to under 165!

    October Start Weight: 172.2
    October Goal Weight: 165 or less

    October 1 - 172.2 (I ended September in a big fury of work related stress. Happy October 1! Looking forward to setting a positive tone for this month.)
    October 2 - 171.4 (Yesterday we biked over 40K in the mountains and today we are going to hike around 5K. The fall weather in Alberta is gorgeous right now.)
    October 3 - 171.4 (Worked from home, walked my dog at lunch, rode the Peloton after work, and then ate salad for supper. Good day.)
    October 4 - 172 (Started with an early morning call for work that got the adrenaline going. I'll walk at lunch and see how I feel after work to do more.)
    October 5 - 172.8 (Had a good day yesterday. Lots of steps and a Peloton ride.)
    October 6 - 171.8 (Flying to Toronto with my hubby and dog to visit some family for Canadian Thanksgiving.)
    October 7 - 170.2
    October 8 - 169.4
    October 9 - 168.2
    October 10 - 169.8 (On our flight home after a lovely visit with my MIL. We had a nice Thanksgiving meal last night. Missing her already.)
    October 11 - 169.8 (Tough day, put myself to bed right after work, husband convinced me to get up for a light supper. Got 10,000 steps at least and ate under on calories.)
    October 12 - 169.2 (Coming to terms with what I can do in limited time. Trying to find ways to make peace with that. Not everything can be a priority. For now I need to work on getting back to my maintenance range while maintaining a reasonable amount of mental health at work.)
    October 13 - 168.8 (Had a good chat with my boss this morning. Feeling a bit more grounded. Dinner out and a concert with friends tonight.)
    October 14 - 168.4 (Today was a whirlwind.. worked from home, went to an appointment, walked my dog, did some strength training, went for a beer, did grocery shopping, and cleaned. Tired!)
    October 15 - 170.2 (Busy day with brunch, coffee, a walk, and supper out.)
    October 16 - 171.8 (Not surprised at the effects of yesterday on the scale today. We are going out for a bike ride today.)
    October 17 - 169.6 (Yesterday's bike ride was amazing. Calories on track. Today was a busy day at work but it was another on track day.)
    October 18 - 169.6
    October 19 - 170 (Today is my third wedding anniversary. Unfortunately I have to travel for business but my husband and I went out for dinner last night and we will do a cooking class together Friday.)
    October 20 - 171.6 (Yesterday turned into a food and drink fest after the work event. Got carried away and the scale reflects that.)

    I’m glad to have this inspiring group of people to share this journey with!

    My October goals are the same as my September goals because those didn’t get met at all. September went sideways on me. I would like to get more movement in, especially on work days and more self care, 3 out of 7 days per week.

    OSW: 250 lbs
    UGW: 150 ish
    December 2022 GW: Onederland
    CW: 207.4 lb
    10/31 GW: 203 lb

    10/1: 207.4
    10/2: 209.4
    Yikes!
    10/3: 205.8
    I weighed myself 3 times. The body is a weird thing.
    10/4: 205.3
    Trying to catch up from all of last month’s drama. I could sleep for three days and still be tired!
    10/5: 205.3
    10/6: 205.1
    So far this months goals have not been being met unless you count an hour nap on Sunday as self care. I guess it is because I needed for my “self.” I’m actually not sure how to meet these goals. They are harder to do than expected.
    10/7: 204.0
    10/8: 204.3
    A manicure and shopping today after work.
    10/9: 205.3
    Salty takeout for dinner. It will come off. Self care yesterday, nails and shopping. Went to my usual plus sized store and am happy to report the last time I was there I was choosing between a 3x/4x (22-24) and yesterday I walked out of there with size 0 (Size 16) and likely will not need to shop there again (hopefully) ever. Definite NSV!
    10/10: 205.3
    10/11: 204.0
    10/12: 204.0
    10/13: 204.0
    10/14: 204.3
    It’s finally Friday!
    10/15: 204.0
    Ticked some more health markers off the list for my path to wellness yesterday, mammogram✅recheck bloodwork ✅. I’m left with an eye appointment and a spine appointment for the year. The rest of yesterday was spent doing self care aka shopping and laying on the couch. I’ll take it!
    10/16: 205.3
    Ugh! Not happy to see this but I know it’s just a bump in the road.
    10/17: 204.6
    My recheck bloodwork came back with a normal A1C but still elevated cholesterol. I’ve also got my blood pressure back to normal. I still have about 60 pounds to lose but my doctor and I talked extensively about my diet and she doesn’t think that’s what’s causing the cholesterol issue. It is likely genetic and something I can’t get away from. I really did not want to have to take a pill though. Ugh.
    10/18: 204
    Bloated, yuck.
    10/19: 203.1
    Apparently begging works! Thank you
    10/20: 204
    10/21: 203
    My results showed one mass with a 95% chance of malignancy and another mass that is “suspicious.” I go for biopsies November 1st but regardless of the results I have to have one if not both masses surgically removed. Trying to stay positive!
