  • Starting weight 325lbs 22nd August 2019
    Start weight this month 274.6
    Goal weight this month 264
    Target goal weight 165lbs possibly less undecided yet!

    Going a little easier on my goal this month as I didn't make goal last month. Missed by 0.3lbs!

    Sept lost 14.9lbs
    October loss 12.1lbs
    November loss 11.6lbs

    1 December 274.6 up from yesterday by 1.3lbs. Too much exercise and not enough water! I'll learn eventually!

    2 December 274.1 down a little from yesterday but still 0.8lbs above my November low! Keep drinking the water!

    3 December 275.2 Not pleased with this but I have a really nasty water infection which I suspect is causing issues as I've not changed anything diet wise.

    4 December 274.2 Better but not great. Water infection still going strong. Have meds now so fingers crossed it goes soon.

    5 December 273.9 Better again but still 0.6lbs over my lowest so far. Water infection improving though so hopefully that'll show in tomorrow's weigh in.

    6 December 271.1! Finally I get a woohoo moment! Now at my lowest weight since October 2013. Maybe, just maybe goal is possible this month because I REALLY don't want to go back up just for Christmas! My best present is weighing less than I do now. :)

    7 December 270.9 delighted with this again! Had half expected a gain today so to lose again is awesome! 😁

    8 December 270.5 Woohoo again! This is 54.5lbs lost since starting. Only 1.5lbs to the 4 stone lost! Super pleased about this! 😊😃😁

    9 December 268.6! Super double woohoo! Really wasn't expecting that but am honestly so delighted. Definitely not screwing this up just for Christmas food!

    10 December - no weigh in, away with work.

    11 December - no weigh in away with work - very scary not having my daily weigh in guidance!

    12 December 267.9! Amazed and really delighted at this! 3.9lbs to go to December goal.

    13 December 267.2! Didn’t expect to lose again today so doubly delighted with this. MFP just works! 3.2lbs to make December goal. 😀

    14 December 267.2 still delighted with this!

    15 December 268.1. Not delighted with this but we’ll deserved since I had a Christmas meal out last night with friends and not enough water! Onwards and downwards to December goal.

    16 December 267.9 Heading in the right direction again but I've got a tough week ahead. Away in a hotel with hubby until Thursday night. Which means eating out. Going to be very careful but worried because I won't have my scales or control of what I'm eating!

    17 December no weigh in as staying away with hubby.

    18 December no weigh in as staying away with hubby.

    19 December 268.9. This was a very late in the day weigh in as we got home late. It’s also that TOM so overall I’m actually okay with this. 1lb on after 3 days of eating out and that time is a good result. I was dreading seeing a potential 6lbs go on and it didn’t so I’m good 😊

    20 December 267.9 back to pre trip weight. Treadmill session done this morning and being much more careful with calories today.

    21 December 266.4!!! Woohoo 🙌 delighted with this. Lowest I’ve been since 2013! 10 days to lose another 2.4lbs to make December goal 😳☺️😂

    22 December 266.6 Gah! Not happy with this but keeping on keeping on! I’m determined to do my best to reach my December goal, having missed November by a smidgen!

    23 December 265.5! Delighted with this! There’s hope for goal this month ☺️

    24 December 265.5, well at least it wasn’t a gain! Here’s to sticking with it tomorrow. Good luck everyone 😊

    So I went off track and regained all lost weight so I am starting again and this time I mean business!


    Starting weight: 63.4 kg
    Current weight: 63.4
    Goal weight: 55kg by May 2020 (ultimate goal weight 53/55 but with fat percentage of around 22%)
    December goal: 62kg - modified to 61kg - modifying further to a cautious 60.5kg - modifying again to 59.9! - reached 59.7! Yay! Not sure if I should set 59.5 as a goal, with all the holiday parties happening. We will see. I am happy as of now.

    01 Dec: 63
    02 Dec: 63.2
    03 Dec: 63.4
    04 Dec: 63.4
    05 Dec: 63.4
    06 Dec: 63.5
    07 Dec: 62.7 (cardio)
    08 Dec: 62 (cardio) (yay! Reached dec goal! New goal 61 kg for December)
    09 Dec: 61.8 (cardio)
    10 Dec: 61.8 (cardio)
    11 Dec: 61.6 (cardio and a bit of abs)
    12 Dec: 61.5 (cardio and some abs)
    13 Dec: 61.1 (yay! I am away from home and found a scale so hope this change is not some variance because of the different scale and is still reflected in my own machine once I get home!)
    14 Dec: 61.1 (yay! This is back in my own usual home scale! So happy! Tantalisingly close to my December goal!)
    15 Dec: 61.3 (oops! I had it coming I guess. Ate heavy meals and snacked on greasy high sodium foods to boot! I spent an hour on the treadmill hoping to burn it but I guess it wasn’t enough! I will be good today!)
    16 Dec: 61.2 (picking the heaviest of the three different weights my machine chose to show me this morning! But I am sure this is going down, I was really good yesterday with eating and exercise.)
    17 Dec: 60.9 (yay! Met my new December goal! Cardio and abs yesterday and calorie deficit)
    18 Dec: 60.8 (yay! Good food, cardio and abs)
    19 Dec: 61.0 (well I knew this was coming, but I really enjoyed the food I had so I don’t regret it. I suppose once in a week I am entitled to treating myself, it is the holiday season after all! I will be good today and tomo we will see a drop, I am pretty sure!)
    20 Dec: 60.6kg (yay! Being good with food watching, cardio and abs paid off)
    21 Dec: 60.2kg (yay! New goal reached! Modifying my goal now! But, well, I did skip dinner and sleep off early. So hope this change is reflected in the scale tomo too!)
    22 Dec: 60.1 (yay! Good food, cardio and abs. Limited sleep though)
    23 Dec: 60.0 (yay! Delighted with this considering I had cake with lunch and limited cardio due to a foot injury)
    24 Dec: 60.0 (I will take this. Controlling myself around chocolate and cakes as much as I can but not very successful frankly!)
    25 Dec: 59.7 (yay! Reached newest dec goal! Ate loads of chocolate but offset by holding off on all other carbs and thus staying within calorie limit. We are off on a trip from today till Monday, so I don’t know if I can weigh in unless the hotel provides a weighing scale. We will see the weight once I return on 30th, in case I don’t have a scale.)

    MFP Start weight: 160 lbs
    Started “just give 1 month” threads in Mid-Oct 2019 @ 157.4 lbs
    December start weight: 155.6 lbs
    December goal: 153 lbs
    Ultimate goal: 98 lbs, but that maybe too low. Main goal is to be healthier & stronger.

    October +2.6 lbs. (160)
    Nov. -2 lbs. (156.6 lbs)

    Dec 1 = 155.6
    Dec 2 = 156.6 Well, I'm not surprised cause I blew it, yesterday, and had 2 slices of pie.Why? just a weak moment & the temptation of this whole beautiful pie that was going to be thrown away. I took it home for my husband & then dove in, too. What a nut! I can & will do better!
    Dec 3 = 156.6
    Dec 4 = 156 :)
    Dec 5 = 157.6 :(
    Dec 6 = 157 :)
    Dec 7 = 157.8 :(
    Dec 8 = 157.8 Yesterday, was really rough. Very stressful. Somehow I must get used to my new normal of extra stress. Very frustrating with Drs, nurses, my Dad, Memory care, my dad's cough, medication.... I still to this moment haven't been able to get the medication called in.
    Dec 9 = 158.6 Binging yesterday & today... Not gonna give up yet! Expecting another gain tomorrow, tho.
    Dec 10 = 158 lbs. stuck with food plan today.
    Dec 11 = 157.2 lbs :)
    Dec 12 = 156.6 lbs :)
    Dec 13 = 158.4 lbs :( Was much better with food the last couple days, so I was surprised with it. Obviously, I did not stick with my food plans completely... I can do this!!!!!!
    Dec 14 = 158.4 lbs
    Dec 15 = 158.4 lbs
    Dec 16 = 157.4 lbs. Stayed under in calories, yesterday. No exercise
    Dec 17 = 156.8 lbs Was pretty good, but not under in calories. no exercise.
    Dec 18 = 156.8 lbs
    Dec 19 = 156.8 lbs That was coming off of a bad food night -- Last night was at friend's bday party at Karaoke Bar & Grill.
    Dec. 20 = 158.6 lbs Knew that was going to happen after last not sticking to my plan, yesterday.
    Dec 21 = 159.7 lbs Thought it would be worse... had a junk food binge during the night. Back on it, today.
    Dec 22 = 159 lbs Another smaller binge last night...
    Dec 23 = 159 lbs
    Dec 24 = 157.2 lbs
    Dec 25 = 155.6 lbs

    Starting weight: 79.9Kg
    Current weight: 67.6/149
    Goal weight: 55 -60/ 121- 132
    December goal: 64kg/141

    Oct loss: 4.4kg/9.7
    Nov loss: 3kg/6.6

    01 Dec: 67.6/149 This month will be interesting
    02 Dec: 68/149.9 All from the weekend 😐 hopefully today’s efforts change the direction.
    03 Dec: 67.2/148.2 🙂 TOM
    04 Dec: 67.5/148.8 calories have been ok.
    05 Dec: 66.7/147
    06 Dec: 66.7/147 Cal’s ok, food TERRIBLE
    07 Dec: 66.5/146.6 Cal’s ok food 😔
    08 Dec: 66.3/146.1 Cal’s ok food 😔 went shopping for better food so hopefully I eat it!
    09 Dec: 66.1/145.7 Cal’s ok, moved treadmill from HOT garage to air conditioned office. Haven’t been using it for weeks 🥵 no excuse now!
    10 Dec: 66 /145.5 Cal’s ok food good
    11 Dec: 65.9/145.3 Cal’s a bit over, had a frozen drink guesstimated what I thought was a generous calorie amount got home and looked up real Cal’s 😱😱
    12 Dec: 65.9/145.3 Cal’s a bit over yesterday
    13 Dec: 66/145.5 Cal’s a bit over yesterday. Last day of school for the kids before 7 weeks off. I love school holidays but I think it will make things harder, have a plan so hoping to prove myself wrong 😃
    14 Dec: 65.7/ 144.8
    15 Dec: 65.7/144.8
    16 Dec: 66.1/145.7 🧐 it’s super hot here and I’ve puffed up again. Had to loosen my watch, belt and bra so I thought the number would actually be higher! Also went over in calories yesterday but not by much.
    17 Dec: 66.1/145.7 still hot, 4 hours sleep last night. Someone else on here mentioned they gain around ovulation... I have never noticed before but looking back over last three months, I have gained about 1Kg/2.2lbs in the same three days leading up. If it does it next month I’ll be convinced it’s not a coincidence. Not sure if it’s a fluid thing or a bad food choice thing (that adds fluid) because I know that’s a problem around there for me. I dislike cooking and I always end up baking something like biscuits or cheesecake something high Cal’s. So interesting!! 😃
    18 Dec:65.5
    19 Dec:65.7/144.8 no excercise just spring cleaning (AKA impending visit from Mother in Law and Great Mother in Law 😏 not sure if that’s a thing) not too worried about numbers going up, still puffy.
    20 Dec: 65.4/144.2
    21 Dec: 65.1/143.5 want to be extra good the next few days so I can finish the year under 65 which is my pre having babies weight (9 years ago!)
    22 Dec: 65.4/144.2
    23 Dec: 65.1
    24 Dec: 65/143.3

    Start weight this month: 149.6
    Goal weight this month: 145-149.6 (even just maintaining is a lofty goal in Dec!)
    Target goal weight: 135-ish

    Aug lost 1.2 lbs
    Sept lost 4.2 lbs
    Oct lost 3.7 lbs
    Nov lost 3.9 lbs

    (I use Happy Scale, so monthly loss above is by moving avg, but I’m going to enter my actual daily weight below.)

    01 Dec: 149.6 lbs
    02 Dec: 149.8
    03 Dec: 149.2

    20 Dec: 146.2 had a lot of salt yesterday
    21 Dec: 144.6 I’m eating about 1700 cal/day, which equals a loss of about a lb/week for me. I don’t know why I’ve lost 5 lbs already this month, but it might have to do with how my cycle fell last month and this month. I was also temporarily a little higher at the end of last month due to Thanksgiving/vacation.
    22 Dec: 146.6 Christmas dinner party last night!
    23 Dec: 148.0 Son’s birthday yesterday—had buttered popcorn at the movies, and Mexican restaurant for dinner. I only went about 300 over maintenance, but had lots of salt! And food weight! I will eat within my goal today, with lower salt, and should drop some of this by Tuesday (just in time for Christmas Eve and Christmas!). I’m pretty happy with my progress so far, anyway.
    24 Dec: 147.8
    25 Dec: 148.4 Yep, holiday indulgences! Oh well, a few days of this, then back to it!

    So I went off track and regained all lost weight so I am starting again and this time I mean business!


    Starting weight: 63.4 kg
    Current weight: 63.4
    Goal weight: 55kg by May 2020 (ultimate goal weight 53/55 but with fat percentage of around 22%)
    December goal: 62kg - modified to 61kg - modifying further to a cautious 60.5kg - modifying again to 59.9! - reached 59.7! Yay! Not sure if I should set 59.5 as a goal, with all the holiday parties happening. We will see. I am happy as of now.

    01 Dec: 63
    02 Dec: 63.2
    03 Dec: 63.4
    04 Dec: 63.4
    05 Dec: 63.4
    06 Dec: 63.5
    07 Dec: 62.7 (cardio)
    08 Dec: 62 (cardio) (yay! Reached dec goal! New goal 61 kg for December)
    09 Dec: 61.8 (cardio)
    10 Dec: 61.8 (cardio)
    11 Dec: 61.6 (cardio and a bit of abs)
    12 Dec: 61.5 (cardio and some abs)
    13 Dec: 61.1 (yay! I am away from home and found a scale so hope this change is not some variance because of the different scale and is still reflected in my own machine once I get home!)
    14 Dec: 61.1 (yay! This is back in my own usual home scale! So happy! Tantalisingly close to my December goal!)
    15 Dec: 61.3 (oops! I had it coming I guess. Ate heavy meals and snacked on greasy high sodium foods to boot! I spent an hour on the treadmill hoping to burn it but I guess it wasn’t enough! I will be good today!)
    16 Dec: 61.2 (picking the heaviest of the three different weights my machine chose to show me this morning! But I am sure this is going down, I was really good yesterday with eating and exercise.)
    17 Dec: 60.9 (yay! Met my new December goal! Cardio and abs yesterday and calorie deficit)
    18 Dec: 60.8 (yay! Good food, cardio and abs)
    19 Dec: 61.0 (well I knew this was coming, but I really enjoyed the food I had so I don’t regret it. I suppose once in a week I am entitled to treating myself, it is the holiday season after all! I will be good today and tomo we will see a drop, I am pretty sure!)
    20 Dec: 60.6kg (yay! Being good with food watching, cardio and abs paid off)
    21 Dec: 60.2kg (yay! New goal reached! Modifying my goal now! But, well, I did skip dinner and sleep off early. So hope this change is reflected in the scale tomo too!)
    22 Dec: 60.1 (yay! Good food, cardio and abs. Limited sleep though)
    23 Dec: 60.0 (yay! Delighted with this considering I had cake with lunch and limited cardio due to a foot injury)
    24 Dec: 60.0 (I will take this. Controlling myself around chocolate and cakes as much as I can but not very successful frankly!)
    25 Dec: 59.7 (yay! Reached newest dec goal! Ate loads of chocolate but offset by holding off on all other carbs and thus staying within calorie limit. We are off on a trip from today till Monday, so I don’t know if I can weigh in unless the hotel provides a weighing scale. We will see the weight once I return on 30th, in case I don’t have a scale.)
    26 Dec: 60.1 (in hotel scale. Well deserved raise. Last night party was way too heavy, I have gone so overboard and did not even count. Well it is ok for a day in the holidays! Got to live a little!)

    Female; Age 52; 5'2"; San Diego, CA

    Starting weight:- 173 pounds
    Goal weight this month:- 169
    Target goal weight:- 140

    We can do this! One step at a time, one week at a time, one pound at a time!

    01 Dec: Did not weigh.
    02 Dec: 173
    03 Dec: 173
    04 Dec: 172.8
    05 Dec: 172.2
    06 Dec: 172
    07 Dec: Did not weigh
    08 Dec: 171.8
    7 days since weighing. Down 1.2 pounds. Have committed this time around to lose 1lb per week, possibly less. It's hard to realize that the older I am, the harder it is to lose and dropping 5lbs in a week is just not realistic anymore. I'm trying to re-set that thought process and commit to logging every day and losing 1lb per week.

    Looking at all the posters' numbers, and seeing your 'slow but sure' numbers coming down - had I committed to this 2 months ago, I would be down 8lbs by now!

    09 Dec: 171.8 Treadmill 30 mins.
    10 Dec: 172 :( Treadmill 30mins. Felt a tweek lower back in the last 2 mins, been uncomfortable all day.Will probably take a break tomorrow.
    11 Dec: 171.8 No exercise; food on track
    12 Dec: 171.8
    13 Dec: 172.2
    14 Dec: 172 Ugh. Need to try harder.
    15 Dec: 170.4 Wait, whaaaaat? OK, so a full week of yo-yoing and suddenly it drops. I'll take it, but hope it sticks.

    Down 1.4 since last week. Staying on track, logging every day. Woke up with a horrible sore throat, several students at school were sick last week, although I have a very strong immune system, it seems its got me this time around.

    16 Dec: 170.4
    17 Dec: 170.4
    18 Dec: 170.8
    19 Dec: Did not weigh. Had a little work get together today - chili and apple pie. Still not feeling very well, really dry, hacking cough. Several of our kids at school are sick and still arrive at school every day :(
    20 Dec: 171 Yay, my break for Christmas holiday.
    21 Dec: 171.2
    22 Dec: 169.6 Very surprised to see this number! And the same thing happened last week.

    Down 0.8 which I am very happy with considering the week.
    I'm glad for the accountability, I am certainly paying more attention to what I'm eating this month and attempting to be much healthier. This week should be pretty good. It's just DH and I for Christmas. 1 son is military and on an 8 day shift off the coast and the other still in Europe. We will have Christmas dinner several days late but always thankful we can have them home at some point during the holidays.

    23 Dec: 169.0
    24 Dec: Did not weigh
    25 Dec: Santa arrives! 168.2 Merry Christmas everyone!
    26 Dec:
    27 Dec: One son comes home!
    28 Dec: Other son comes home!

    Still have family staying so still not much time for reading/comments. So much to do! 😂

    🎄 Welcome to the minefield that is December 😂🤣😂😂🤣

    Journey so far:
    Jan 2015: I joined MFP, and gradually reduced
    Oct 2016: finally hit my target of 155
    Dec 2018: Had gradually wavered up again to 170s
    Jan 2019: Set new goal of 155 by end of the year
    July 2019: had bounced up and down between 160 and 170
    Aug 2019: Gave myself the proverbial kick up the a** and buckled down!
    Oct 2019: Set new goal weight of 150 by year end
    Nov 2019: Hit goal late Nov. I’m now focusing on increasing strength workouts
    Aug: -8.31 (a lot of this was holiday weight gained in July)
    Sept: -4.71
    Oct: -4.2
    Nov: -2.2 (Strength workouts temporarily slowing progress)

    OSW: 227 (Mar 2014)
    CSW: 170.1 (1 Aug 2019)
    DEC SW: 150
    GW: Under 150

    01 Dec: 150
    02 Dec: 150
    03 Dec: 149.9
    04 Dec: 149.6
    05 Dec: 148.8 Pleased that weight is moving again. This is the lowest I have been since my late 30s.
    06 Dec: 149.2 Normal daily fluctuations are a fact of life. And I have several shindigs today, so expect another temporary bounce up tomorrow.
    07 Dec: 150.4 Not too badly over goal, but salty snacks at wine tasting last night have had the inevitable result. It's the tightrope we walk. However, bouncing around 150 is vastly preferable to the 170s of last December.
    08 Dec: 149.6 Hopefully on the way down again but could just be normal daily fluctuations
    Mo 09/12: 148.6 I made better choices yesterday, but have a Christmas celebration with my Monday Painters after lunch, so eating light the rest of the day.
    Tu 10/12: 148.8 Phew! Not to bad. But this morning I am celebrating with my Craft Group. See what I mean about December being a minefield! 😂
    We 11/12: 149.2 And there it is! I'm wearing my celebrations 🎉 but today I am shopping (lots of walking) anc chores at home so will avoid the goodies.
    Th 12/12: 147.8 Yesterday I got in an extra hour walking in the unexpected sunshine after lunch. And had mostly healthy snacks. (Ate a ring doughnut at my evening crochet group, but still over 600+ Of a deficit, even after that.) After almost 5 years working at changing my previous bad habits, hoping this is my new normal. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
    Fri 13 Dec: 148.8 One or two social events.
    Sat 14 Dec: 148.6 Normal fluctuations 😂 Next week is relatively clear of social events, so there will be less temptation to stray.
    Sun 15 Dec: 147.2 Stayed on track yesterday. Spent most of the day doing prep on sleeping arrangements for family visiting over Christmas. Our outdoor lights are up and working.
    Mon 16 Dec: 148.6 On track. Normal fluctuation.
    Tue 17 Dec: 148.2 Under maintenance, although we did have afternoon tea with BiL and SiL, who are heading stateside on Friday for Christmas up near the Canadian border. Our 5 yr old Great niece is learning to ski.
    Wed 18 Dec: 147.4
    Thu 19 Dec: 147.8
    Fri 20 Dec: 149.2 4 days of festive social events have an inevitable effect. It's so difficult to accurately log food provided by others. At least I have nothing now until family arrives on Christmas Eve.
    Sat 21 Dec: 149.4
    Sun 22 Dec: 149.2 holding steady.
    Mon 23 Dec: 149.6 Visiting DED and grands yesterday. Granddaughter just flew in from Oxford on Friday. Her 25th birthday was on the 14th, so we celebrated.
    Tue 24 Dec: 149.8 Family celebrations begin today.
    Wed 25 Dec: DNW
    Thu 26 Dec: 149.6: I'm in shock! Fully expected to be up this morning. I tracked and was way over calories. I didn't go mad, but I ate lots of samples of treats/snacks which family had prepared/donated to the festive table, so expected high sodium would retain liquid. I did drink almost a litre of water before bedtime, so maybe that helped. Expecting tomorrow will show a rise, but very pleased that I have stayed more or less stable for the first Christmas in quite a few decades. Family still here today, but we have a walk planned. However, I reckon I can remove any overage before 31st.
