Thanks for starting the new thread gardenerjoy. I'm in, of course

So I was really optimistic for September, and it turned out to be sort of a dud. I was hoping for 5 pounds, instead, it looks like I'm going to end up with only about 1 pound. But my pattern is to stall and whoosh and I'm due for a whoosh. So I'm going to be optimistic again and go for marking off my next 3 minigoals, which would be about 4 pounds from where I'm at today.

SW: 175.8
October GW: 171.6 * Met 10/13/19
New goal: 169.8

Upcoming minigoals:
173.8 - 35% lost *Met 10/5/19*
172.4 - BMI 27 *Met 10/12/19*
171.6 - 15 BMI lost *Met 10/13/19*
160s - High School weight-ish *Met 10/20/19*

I'm here, hello, I got this! It's October, Autumn is around the corner (despite this week being still summer temperatures, grrrr) but I don't care anymore because I'm gonna drag my a$$ out on a run three times a week, no more excuses. My goal is to the lost 4 lbs this month, however, I would love to reach 185 lbs and meet my ticker goal of being firmly in the 180's by Halloween.

Since I'll be working from home a few days a week now I'll have more time to post here, huzzah! October's weighing in has begun for me, my starting weight is 193.1 lbs. I've been holding on to a similar number since I restarted a few months ago, hoping that this is finally the month where I get to see the 180's again! Tomorrow I'll be starting the C25K program, for the first time using my phone instead of scribbling the intervals on my hand.

Hey all! Thanks to the amazing bunch on these threads, I feel incredibly motivated to up the goals!

Goals: Daily weigh-ins, minimum of 5 on-plan meals per week, meal prep on weekends so MINIMAL cooking during the week!

SW: 151.2
GW: 145.0 {also hits mini goal of no longer overweight!}

9/30: 151.2
10/1: 150.4
10/2: 149.4
10/3: 150.9
10/4: 151.1
10/5: 149.7
10/6: 151.1

10/7: 152.3

I'm behind on getting ready for work. Just wanted to continue to say thank you to all of you for being a great support system. Since one side of my family is overweight and doesn't care and the other is in normal range, but makes comments when they gain half a pound, there is nobody in my own personal life that understands the struggle. So while I apologize for being cheesy, thank you.

That's a new low for me today. Not by much, but every time I see a new low, it means I'm trending the right way, so even the tiny increments add up and I'll take it.

Wednesday weigh-in updates...yay! Today I'm at 149.4, which does make me feel 'officially' out of the 150s, although I'm aware an all-in day could change that haha! I am a pound heavier than what my weigh-in was late last week (148.5 last Friday), but it's alright since last Wednesday, I was at 150.0!

On my meal prep weekend, I didn't prep for myself though! We ended up lacking room in the fridge because my grandma, for whatever reason, has SOOO MUCH FOOD this week. I'm more so eating based on convenience this week, and it really makes me understand the importance of meal prep; this ish is hard! Luckily I did still have some leftovers for yesterday's lunch, so now it's just to scrounge around to finish out the week.

Good morning. I found out Monday that I am indeed pregnant, so the weight loss will have to wait until sometime next summer. So, I hope to catch up with you all then.
