    πŸŽ„ Welcome to the minefield that is December πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    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! πŸ˜‚
    We 11/12: 149.2 And there it is! I'm wearing my celebrations πŸŽ‰ 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 πŸ˜‚ 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.
    Fri 27 Dec: 151.6 After 4 days of entertaining family, this is not unexpected. Despite not going completely over the top, it has been a carbs/sodium overloaded 4 days, so buckling down for the next few days should make a dent un the overage.
    Sat 28 Dec: 152.1 Just over 4lbs up, but I think that's it. I still have 4 days left to discard that festive overage before the end of the month.

    11 Dec: 14st 7.5 (-0.4lb / -4.6lb)
    12 Dec: 14st 6.7 (-0.8lb / -5.4lb) TOTM started yesterday, and am feeling so hungry.Β  My goal is set to 1.5lb a week in MFP, but think I need to raise my calories allowed to get through TOTM without a huge binge.
    13 Dec: 14st 7.7 (+1.0lb / -4.4lb).Β  Only ate just over 900 cal yesterday - had planned a special pudding to have once kids had gone to bed, but started having horrendous period cramps, so just crawled in bed andΒ  stayed there and never finished what I had planned to eat.Β  Will have to figure out how to fit it into today's budget!Β  Assuming the fluctuations are TOTM relates so trying not the get frustrated with an increase in the scales!
    14 Dec: 14st 5.9 (-1.8lb / -6.2lb)
    15 Dec: 14st 6.2 (+0.3lb / -5.9lb) Went to an all you can eat pan Asian restaurant yesterday.Β  I was very reserved and didn't stuff myself - only real naughtiness was the bottle of prosecco... needless to say, went over my calorie goal (but I believe less than maintenance).
    16 Dec: 14st 4.8 (-1.4lb / -7.3lb)
    17 Dec: 14st 4.4 (-0.4lb / -7.7lb) Have had a couple of weird days where I have eaten very little until evening dinner (where I then eat majority of calorie allowance) which seems to be paying off on the scales.
    18 Dec: 14st 3.4 (-1.0lb / -8.7lb) woohoo!Β  (But not sure where that came from, last few days losses more than I was expecting, but not complaining as I am sure scales will go up soon as the Christmas festivities get started!

    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: 168.2
    27 Dec: 168 One son comes home! Safe and sound :)
    28 Dec: Did not weigh. Other son comes home later tonight. Been weighing almost every day, keeping daily track of food, but just not checking in here. Hope everyone's holiday was a good one!

    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
    04 Dec: 149.8
    05 Dec: 148 (after ovulation increase)
    06 Dec: 147.6
    07 Dec: 147.2
    08 Dec: 147.2
    09 Dec: 147.4
    10 Dec: 146.8
    11 Dec: 147.4
    12 Dec: 147.6 PMS gain

    17 Dec: 146.8
    18 Dec: 147.4
    19 Dec: 145.6 end of PMS weight
    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 yesterdayβ€”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!
    26 Dec: 146.2 Not bad, since I definitely went over maintenance yesterday, but really, only by about 600 calories. I guess I lost some of the water gain and food mass πŸ˜„
    27 Dec: 146.6 (Ovulation water gain) I also had a lot of salt yesterday. I’m still a few lbs under for the month, so I’m happy.
    28 Dec: 146.6

    11 Dec: 14st 7.5 (-0.4lb / -4.6lb)
    12 Dec: 14st 6.7 (-0.8lb / -5.4lb) TOTM started yesterday, and am feeling so hungry.Β  My goal is set to 1.5lb a week in MFP, but think I need to raise my calories allowed to get through TOTM without a huge binge.
    13 Dec: 14st 7.7 (+1.0lb / -4.4lb).Β  Only ate just over 900 cal yesterday - had planned a special pudding to have once kids had gone to bed, but started having horrendous period cramps, so just crawled in bed andΒ  stayed there and never finished what I had planned to eat.Β  Will have to figure out how to fit it into today's budget!Β  Assuming the fluctuations are TOTM relates so trying not the get frustrated with an increase in the scales!

    17 Dec: 14st 4.4 (-0.4lb / -7.7lb) Have had a couple of weird days where I have eaten very little until evening dinner (where I then eat majority of calorie allowance) which seems to be paying off on the scales.
    18 Dec: 14st 3.4 (-1.0lb / -8.7lb) woohoo!Β  (But not sure where that came from, last few days losses more than I was expecting, but not complaining as I am sure scales will go up soon as the Christmas festivities get started!

    πŸŽ„ Welcome to the minefield that is December πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    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! πŸ˜‚
    We 11/12: 149.2 And there it is! I'm wearing my celebrations πŸŽ‰ 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 πŸ˜‚ 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.
    Fri 27 Dec: 151.6 After 4 days of entertaining family, this is not unexpected. Despite not going completely over the top, it has been a carbs/sodium overloaded 4 days, so buckling down for the next few days should make a dent un the overage.
    Sat 28 Dec: 152.1 Just over 4lbs up, but I think that's it. I still have 4 days left to discard that festive overage before the end of the month.
    Sun 29 Dec: 151.4 Not too bad.
    30 Dec:
    31 Dec:

  • 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! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜

    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. πŸ˜€

    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 πŸ™Œ delighted with this. Lowest I’ve been since 2013! 10 days to lose another 2.4lbs to make December goal πŸ˜³β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‚

    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 😊

    25 December 266.1 hmm small increase but not the end of the world.

    26 December 268.3 not drinking enough water!

    27 December 269.3 definitely down to the water, I’ve logged and I know I haven’t over eaten by 7000 calories. Need to drink more water πŸ’¦

    28 December 268.3 going in the right direction again but still not drinking enough due to being out and busy!

    29 December 267.7 well safe to say I’m not going to make goal this month but I’m glad I’m still counting a reasonable loss. Half a stone is a result especially over Christmas. Sorry I played catch up today! It’s been manic here! Hope everyone else is doing okay πŸ‘Œ

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 yesterdayβ€”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!
    26 Dec: 146.2 Not bad, since I definitely went over maintenance yesterday, but really, only by about 600 calories. I guess I lost some of the water gain and food mass πŸ˜„
    27 Dec: 146.6 (Ovulation water gain) I also had a lot of salt yesterday. I’m still a few lbs under for the month, so I’m happy.
    28 Dec: 146.6
    29 Dec: 145.4–(end of ovulation weight)
