I'm getting very anxious about not being able to weigh myself and all the eating that's been going on. The only silver lining is that I've been able to keep up my workouts. All my normal walking has been cut out though and that's usually around 15k steps a day. My entire day now might be fewer steps than my normal morning dog walk.

Started September at 210.4.

This morning was a 208.8, so, almost halfway there to my 5lb September goal.

Forgot to post this yesterday 3/15.



This morning I ended up weighing in at 136.2. Up a bit, but weight loss is not linear and I’m not getting discouraged over it.

Iíll weigh in tomorrow before the gym. Workout 2/15 for September. Had to take the first week off due to a hip strain. All better now.



My wife goes to OTF and I know how tough it is to get splats let alone ~30. Awesome job!

I'm in for 5 lbs.  That might be an overly modest target since I (for some reason) spiked up like 4 lbs on my end of August number.  It is pretty crazy how much my numbers (I use one of those bio impedance scales) can move around over a couple of days.

Down 3.3 lbs month to date, but like I said the starting point was kind of artificially high since I just spiked up almost 4 lbs at month end (in like one day).  My weight is bouncing around like crazy but I'm lifting a fair amount too.

My 1 week check in had me down 2lbs for the week. Diet has been slightly better but have started adding in a workout.  My motivation usually wanes after 1-2 weeks.  Hopefully hanging around here gives me a little extra kick.

I'm really excited. Somehow I managed to keep on track without access to a food scale, a people scale, or much control over what I ate, and free flowing alcohol and carbs. One meal was literally just leftover cake!  I'm down about 3.5 lbs this month so halfway to my goal. And basically as much as June, July, and August combined!  It's a big motivational boost to keep me going.

I've lost 3lbs. Ran 2 miles without stopping for the first time since retiring from Army 2007. No gluten or sugar. I've been sober since 2004 so sugar has been my go too. Feel good.

1st of September I was 96.3 kg.  My aim is a loss of 1.4 kg, to 94.9 kg.  Not a huge target, but one I really want to hit and keep.

96.6 kg today.  No real movement yet, but considering what I ate on the weekend, not too bad.

96.2 today.  Consistent, but not going down.  Better have a good weekend.

135.2 today.
I hurt my mid-back yesterday, hopefully not too badly but it was definitely not a good time. Here’s the workout results from yesterday. Taking today off and maybe tomorrow too depending on how I’m feeling with my back tonight.

9/1   188.8 lbs
9/8   186.1 lbs
9/15 182.2 lbs

End of month goal 178 lbs

Iíve been very disciplined with sticking to a whole food plant based diet, except for one cheat meal per week. The cheat meal this week was a fantastic Indian dinner (vegetarian). I exercised 3 times last week, one 90 minute bicycle ride and two (90 - 100 minute) nice long walks after dinner. Iím quite overweight and am assuming the weight loss will decrease as I approach my healthy weight range. I feel great with a lot more energy than Iíve had in the past (heaviest weight was 231 lbs).

Met my 3 lb goal-- it's been consistent for a few days so I'm ready to call it. Going to go for a bonus 2 lbs. Adding a few runs a week into my routine to try and surprise my body with something new!

Workout #6 for this month. Performed well but my eating has been a little all over the place. I’m dating someone new, so a lot of our dates are going out for drinks or food. I need to come up with new ideas for dates that don’t involve so much eating (and spending).

Iím down 2 pounds out of the 5 I wanted to lose this month.  I have done a great job exercising this month and pushing myself to work harder and do more but have fallen short when it comes to my diet.  Iím going to try to eat out less in the last half of the month so hopefully I will still meet my goal.

9-19 184.4

Trying to hit 182 by 9-30 and STAY at 182.   

It's been so hard because since school started my son stopped begging me to go daily to the gym. Over the summer, gym nights became a habit for us.  I didn't work out much, but I worked out more than I do when I don't go to the gym.

Almost there, ahead of schedule.

Actual weigh in numbers:
210.4 on 9/1
205.4 on 9/19
5lb weight loss

Moving average numbers:
211.3 on 9/1
206.7 on 9/19
4.6lb weight loss

Goal is 5 lbs, so moving average (what I keep an eye on) is almost there!

But, I have a week of vacation next week, so I'm guessing there will be some regression. I'm not looking to overindulge, but I'm not going to limit my calories or carbs since it'll be good times with family.

Um never mind. I started creatine supplementation and wow I pretty much instantly gained around 5 lbs.  So now I'm up 2lbs for the month.

I fell off the wagon during/after an entire week of work travel.

Up to 203 this morning, 7 day average up to 201.2......so I''m now 6.2lbs above my goal, with 10 days left in the month.

135.4 this morning. Finally back on a downward trend.

Had to leave my workout 15 minutes early today to get to a deposition on time, but still got a good burn in. Ran mostly on 4%+ inclines so my heart rate was up almost the whole time.

203.6 today
6.8 lbs lost

Moving 7 Day Average
211.3 on 9/1
205.5 today
5.8 lbs lost

So my moving average is now firmly over my 5 lb loss goal. Woot! I have vacation the last week of September and I'm really going to try hard to continue weight loss. So, a challenge for me within this challenge thread!

I think that's a great idea!  I know when I go on vacation I enjoy being able to eat whatever delicious food they have in the area that you can't get at home.   But it's a great idea to think about what wonderful exercise they have in the area that is different from at home.   Scuba diving, hiking, rock climbing, beach walking, cliff climbing....

Or what great (low carb, diet, whatever you are into) food they have that might be different from what you eat at home.   Maybe find some new and fun foods?

I might not reach my 178lb goal but Iím really happy with my progress this month. Knowing Iím posting my numbers here helped me walk past the office treats. 😊

Really not happy.  I ate one small serving of lasagna last night for dinner, and a 400 calorie ravioli frozen dinner for lunch.  That was enough to push me back up 2 pounds? 

Just going to keep on keeping on.

Yep, that's just what you have to do.

If it helps, that frozen dinner was probably loaded with salt. You're probably just a bit waterlogged today. If you stay on track it should be gone soon.

I am slightly hesitant to announce it too soon, but, you guys, I've been under the magical 160 number for 4 days now!!! I don't think I'll hit my goal for September, but I did finally hit a BMI of 25!   Bodyfat wise I'm still at "what's a muscle?" But we're working on that.

Overall, I'm down 20 lbs for the year or halfway to where I wanted to be by now. I'm back to the weight I'd been maintaining around for about 5 years until things got out of hand last year.  20 lbs to go to goal and then I'll reevaluate.

#12 for this month. Mostly a “green” day because (1) I started with weights instead of on the treadmill so I was too tired to get my heart rate up that high; and (2) I’ve started power walking on inclines instead of running because I was losing booty! :-(

Weight update: finally got some movement. 134.0.

Down 8.2 for September from 164 to 155.8! It's my first time meeting my goal this year!

Part of it I attribute to more aggressive calorie tracking and a delayed effect of the increase in physical activity that started in August, BUT a good chunk is just water weight. I started a medication last week that has the side effect of being a diuretic and the scale has been falling daily. I was around 159 when I started it. I don't really know what to do with this info. I assume this water whoosh will start to stabilize soon and then I'll be able to see where I am and set a new short term goal from there.

I'm also bracing myself for it to go whooshing back on when I go off the meds. It will be distressing when it happens, even if I know why. I'll probably be on them for a couple months at least, potentially significantly longer, so there is time for my body to adjust to this and get on with the real weight loss in the meantime.

Down a total of 9.6lbs for the month! Iíve been averaging a 4lb loss per month, and I have about 20 more pounds to lose before Iím in my healthy weight range. I havenít been in the 170ís since high school. Iíve struggled with weight my entire adulthood, and now that my finances are in order and Iím not stressing over debt, I have room in my life to concentrate on healthy eating and exercise. Feeling blessed for finding this group.

Meh.  Only did a 3 spot this month.  Need to pick it up next month!

Iím in. Iíd like to drop 9 lbs this month. I have a lot to drop so this shouldnít be impossible, but will still be a challenge.

Iím down 6.4 lbs. Not quite what I wanted, but not bad either. Since starting to lose weight in August, Iím down 15.4 lbs.

Lost 5 lbs.  not the 8 lbs I was hoping for, but not bad.

I'm down to 189.4 pounds this morning ( from 199 last month!!)

I'm eating moderate low carb (probably between 50-80 g. of carbs per day) and using MFP to track calories, trying for under 1600 daily.   I work out daily in the evenings but am not doing anything too strenuous.   Weight loss for a woman in her 50s is hard so I"m expecting a stall.

My goal for this month is therefore to end at 182 pounds.

I got sick last Monday, started eating carbs again, and really lost all my self control.

Finally got back on the scale today (Oct 2) to see the damage -- I am still 184 pounds.

So I'd say I lost about 5.4 pounds.   Still a few pounds over my goal weight for the month, but under the circumstances I will take it!   And keep working through October.

Woops. Maybe I spoke too soon. Back up to 158.8 today. Maybe my body is already adjusting to the meds and cancelling out the initial water weight loss?  I think my goal for October is just going to be to get to 155 and stay steady there for a little bit.
