Hello again, Joy. My overall goal is to lose 1 lb. each week, on average. October is a bit more than 4 weeks. So, I will aim for a total of 5 lbs.

Sep 30: 238.0
Oct Goal: 233.0

thanks gardenerjoy.

I'll join if I may. I've rather taken my eye off the ball lately & could do with making myself a bit more accountable.

start: 16st 1.5lb / 225.5lb
target: 15st 10lb / 220lb

so, a target of 5.5lb loss for the month, starting today.

Nice to meet you MrBadger. My daughter and her family live in London, although I live in Canada. Good luck to you and Joy this month. I'm off to a slow start this month, but it's better than an up!

Hello Muffs & Joy. Welcome MrBadger.

I didnít quite meet my September goal and had a bounce up this morning to start the month (probably partially due to my crazy day yesterday of eating out of the house for all 3 meals). Well a new month & a new goal, so Iím going to set my goal for the month a drop below my September goal (183) so Iím going 182. Itís 4.6 from where I am today & 2.8 from where I was yesterday. If I get it Iíll set a bonus goal. My Immediate goal is actually to get below 185 & stay there for a week (thatís when I earn my first ďtreatĒ I set for myself).

Hereís to a positive, productive month for us all. We can do it!!!!


9/30: 184.8
10/1: 186.6

Goal: 182.0

Muffs: I went in the wrong direction, too. I suspect too much salt and some water retention from muscle-building yoga poses.

October goal: -1.0 kg, Weigh 20x

No change this morning...definitely not due to muscle building yoga poses in my case! Still, doing what I'm doing has got me this far, so I shall continue to wait patiently..

I was going in the wrong direction as well. Mine was definitely not due to muscle building anything. In my case it was Chinese food & visiting my mother-in-law for her birthday (she wanted to cook). Iíll be back to cooking this week. Also decided to be determined to get my steps in, even if that has to be at home walking in place. Itís rainy & cold and I had too much to do at work yesterday so didnít make it to the gym. Hereís hoping I can get there today.

You're doing well, Wendy...keep it up. Joy: thanks for reminding me about Leslie...I will look into those videos.

As for me...my scales are stuck. They like where they are; they are tired; and they have decided not to move any more going forward!

Scale continues to be stubborn! P.S. I'm not sure if this was just good luck or an anomaly...but the 3FC site today is operating at normal speeds, as opposed to its normal snail's pace. I hope whoever runs the site has managed to fix whatever the problem was that caused it to be so slow!
