    How can I easily find my last post to update? It's really frustrating to have to go through so many pages to find it.

    There is a search function. Hit the little arrow, and you can also put filters on; search for yourself as author and you can add a time limit.

    Alternately, if you are using a computer rather than a phone, you can create a text file or word processor file. I just use Notepad for Windows; the files are tiny. Then update, copy, and paste. Easy peasy!

    If you quote an old post, be sure to remove the place where it says [ quote] from the beginning and where it says [ /quote] at the end.

    Someone shared this tip with me last fall. Keep your post on a word doc. Update that every Monday and then copy/paste it here. You don't ever have to look up your old post again! Works pretty nice.

    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL): 253 on January 11, 2018
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 191.8

    Jan. 6: 191.8 A nice small overnight drop. I need better choices & more water.
    Jan. 13: 195.4 I am really fighting severe glucose drops & frenzied eating to bring it back up. Horrid! Until my blood sugar stabilizes, I can't begin to set each month's goal. I will get there....
    Jan. 20: 189.7 Its been a week of blood glucose highs and lows. Slowly I am re-adjusting my body to my original meal plan & exercise goals. Each day finds me feeling a bit better and closer to better numbers all around. It’s nice to see this drop. It was done slowly, a little everyday for the most part.
    Jan. 27: 190.0 I made goal right on target but with a severe struggle due to the glucose issues. I am still actively work hard on that and hope I can get it resolved soon.
    Jan. 31: 191.6 I’m not ending this month very well. It will be a catchup game in February.

    January Goal: 190.0
    January Actual: 191.6


    Feb 1: 191.6
    Feb. 3: 192.6 Superbowl Carbs. Was mindful of the snacks but there was pasta.
    Feb. 10: 193.1 Was trying a new experiment. It’s clearly not working for me. I think I just confused my mind AND my body!

    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL): 187 lbs Aug., 2019
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 172.4 lbs (I weigh in every Fri ~ longtime habit ~ so I will be posting twice a week.)

    Jan. 6: OK. Here we go...Fri Jan 3 ~ weighed in @ 171.2 ~ I'm really hoping that this time my "plateau" is finally OVER!! I just have 1or2 questions: Why, oh WHY do cough drops have to have calories?! 💔 And if I cough my head off for a week, does that count as exercise?? 😷😜😂 ...MON JAN 6 ~ 172.6 lbs. I must be holding water or something cuz even tho' I've been sick & not working out very much, I have been VERY CAREFUL about weighing everything I eat. At this point I am *this close* to giving up. 😥
    I found this link via one of my email newsletters ~ good advice for yours truly here...
    https://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_articles.asp?id=1951&utm_source=sparkpeople&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=best-of-sparkpeople&utm_content=F1
    Jan. 13: Fri Jan 10 ~ 171.6 lbs ~ OK...I'm not gonna say any more. I don't wanna "jinx it." 😜 ...MON JAN 13 171.6 lbs ~ one comment: "thank God it's not a gain" ...that's all I was worried about; starting today, finally back to workouts!!
    Jan. 20: Fri Jan 17 ~ 171.2 lbs ~ back to where I was, at least! not bad...not great...but not bad! I'll just pick it up from here, I guess! Mon Jan 20 ~ 171.2 lbs !!! 😂 no loss, no gain. no loss, no win. LOL ...not bad after 2 birthday parties AND...a get-together @ my bro's house!! I'm actually kinda proud of myself this morning! 😜
    Jan. 27: Fri Jan 24 ~ 169.8 lbs! YESSSS!!!! 😂 ...MON Jan 27 ~ 169.8 lbs *again, same as FRI's update...but as long as I did NOT gain, I'm good with it. And...updating my measurements, I have LOST a total of 3.5" overall since November. I only wish I had measured myself when I first started back in August...but as my BMI has also gone DOWN a grand total of 2.9 since the beginning, I think I can safely say I'm gonna be just fine!! hehehe ........
    JUST ONE LAST WEIGH-IN for Jan ~ Fri Jan 31 weighed in @ 168.8 lbs ~ I guess I'll say that I very nearly made my goal here, only .8 lbs above what I aimed for! (This may very well be the BEST I've done yet! 😉)

    January Goal: 168 lbs
    January Actual: 168.8 lbs

    Feb. 3: 170.4 lbs ~ 😫 ~ This is a no-brainer...traveling out-of-state to visit relatives, eating unfamiliar food late at night with people who don't always weigh/measure (I'm used to no later than 6pm), no chance to work out, no place to put my feet up & now my ankles are swollen again...it all adds up, doesn't it?! 😥 Well...as they say, today is a NEW DAY!!! hehehe... Fri Feb 7 ~ 170.6 lbs ~ ouch! not as bad as I feared, but not as good as I would have hoped, either...When I get home next week I will be sure to be VERY watchful...I need to make that goal by the end of Spring! *wanna get back down to 135 lbs by the end of this journey....* 🙏....
    Feb. 10: 170.2 lbs ~ back down! :p ...Fri Feb 14 ~ 169.8 lbs ~ back home now, back to strict program...over the whole "stomach thing" & actually ate a complete meal for lunch lol ...let's see how this weekend plays out, shall we? Birthday for 9yo grandson on Sunday, BE CAREFUL with cupcakes & ice cream...

    Original starting weight (March 2013) - 175.4
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    December 21, 2019 starting weight - 144.2 (ten-day rolling average 144.6)
    Ultimate goal - Maintain around 143 (range between 140 - 150)

    I had achieved my goal last Winter and gone into maintenance. I hope y'all don't mind a maintainer in here as an interloper. When you get to your goal, you'll see that maintenance is still a challenge. I have mostly stayed within my goal range, but have bounced around a bit.

    Happy winter!


    Winter Begins:
    Dec. 21: 144.2 (10-day average 144.6)
    Dec. 28: 144.6 (10-day average 145.0)

    JANUARY:
    Dec. 31: 146.4 (10-day average 145.2)
    Jan. 4: 144.8 (10-day average 145.3)
    Jan. 11: 143.6 (10-day average 144.4)
    Jan. 18: 139.8 (10-day average 143.5)
    Jan. 25: 144.2 (10-day average 142.7)
    Jan. 31: 144.8 (10-day average 144.6)

    January Goal: 143
    January Actual: By scale, depending which day you look at, I either gained an insignificant 0.2 pounds or lost almost a pound. By average weight, I'm down a little bit. I had a Bagel Disaster a week ago and had a weight spike that I'm finally getting over. Whew. I am optimistic I can stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.

    FEBRUARY:
    Feb. 1: 143.4 (10-day average 144.5)
    Feb. 8: 142.8 (10-day average 144.5)
    Feb. 15: 145.8 (10-day average 144.0)
    Feb. 22:
    Feb. 28:

    February Goal: Stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.
    February Actual: I have been bouncing around all month, and I guess that's my goal, right? Just still trying to get the fluctuation a tiny bit lower. It will happen.

    Challenge Weight loss goal: Range between 142-148
    Actual Weight loss for the challenge: After the gains in October through November, I'm really happy to be back to maintaining right near my goal.
