    Looks like you're having a good November. Whatever you've been doing the last few weeks, KEEP DOING THAT! I know you've had plenty of success punctuated by kicks in the head. This is a good month. Let's keep seeing that fuchsia! Then let's see you cross one more number off the bottom of the list!

    @mtaratoot Not such a good week for me and I don't think the month will end with any great progress. However, I appreciate your support and your reminding me to keep on track. You are right! The small changes add up and differences Can be made! I know why I had that good week and I will keep on keeping on. But perhaps not on Saturday during our Thanksgiving dinner. I'm only human lol.

    A little mid-week update.

    I haven't been updating my weight here on my MFP profile regularly. I had been when I was in maintenance. I set my profile not to send out a note on my feed because I thought it was silly for it to keep announcing I lost a few tenths of a pound. Over and over. Because I was gaining and losing the same few pounds.

    Well, when COVID-19 arrived in early 2020, I was still ~mostly~maintaining until about October of that year. Then I gained. And gained. I did lose and gain some, but it was at a higher weight than I had been able to maintain for several years. It was a little frustrating. What am I saying; it was ANNOYING. I tried not to let it get to me because I was still in a healthy BMI range most of the time. I did pop out of both my ideal and my absolute maintenance ranges. I didn't like that.

    I had decided a year or so ago not to update my profile weight until I hit a new low. I did that a few times. The last time I did that was back in May. Well, today the scale told me I had attained a mass slightly lower than that, so I updated MFP's profile.

    Today I weighed less than I have weighed since October, 2020. I am now well within my maintenance range, and I'm just a few pounds over what used to be my goal weight. I might actually even get there. For sure I'll surpass my monthly goal on this challenge; that's something I haven't done since... since I really don't remember when.

    Sad thing is it took me getting sick and having unsustainable loss rate to get here. I'll take that windfall and get back to maintaining like I used to do!

    @mtaratoot Congrats on the new low. You've worked for it and deserve the success! How inspiring!

    My name is Donna. I am 62 years old and I live in the Midwest of the US. I am 5โ€™ 5โ€ tall.

    Start Weight (from Oct 31, 2022 ): 197.8
    Goal Weight: 192.8 (5 pound loss)

    End of Challenge Weight: xxxxx
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 145-155 (Iโ€™ll know it when I get there!)



    Weight in blue makes me blue because itโ€™s a gain. Weight in fuchsia pink makes me feel cheery because itโ€™s a loss. Weight in black means no change.


    11/01-199.8-(Trend Weight: 200.2)-

    11/08-198.2-(Trend Weight: 199.7)- Traveling today downstate to accompany a friend on a specialist medical appointment. She needs me today and Friday to be a driver. Dinner will be out in the big city. Between that and no pill during travel, my weight tomorrow will be a disaster but I will bounce back. Even with several days of travel, I am aiming for another loss by next weekโ€™s weigh-in.

    11/15-195.8-(Trend Weight: 198.7)- Iโ€™m doinโ€™ the happy dance friends! Wow, all that yard work and good food choices is finally catching up. Travel today. Iโ€™m hoping this good news will help keep me on track! Iโ€™ve worked hard this week on both diet and movement (yard work). It payed off!

    11/22-198.6-(Trend Weight: 198.7)- Well, I didnโ€™t get to dance for long. Last weekโ€™s weight was a one day fluke after some heavy yard work. Iโ€™ve not made any progress this month at all according to the stats and that is a huge disappointment. However, I can honestly say that I am a size down in my tops (that means my big diabetic belly is smaller for sure!) and my pants are looser. My breathing is a bit better. What Iโ€™m really enjoying is shopping on the regular racks of clothing now, not the 1x, 2x stuff anymore. I want to hang on to that progress, even during all the foody holidays that are coming up.

    11/30-xxxxx-(Trend Weight: xxxxx)-


    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    @deepwoodslady NSVs are the best. Hold on to them when the scale doesn't reflect your progress. We can beat the holidays ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ
