    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...
    Feb. 17: 168 lbs! Well, that's surprising...but not. I am finally back on track here. But I am updating my Feb goal to reflect what is possible in the next 2 weeks...maybe I will get past that, eh?! ...Fri Feb 21 ~ 169.6 lbs. huh. interesting, not sure how but.... 😩 ...
    Feb. 24: 167.8 lbs ~ *whew!* ...much better than I had feared...I do NOT wanna give up frequent family gatherings, no matter the food served...I love my family! so, there's THAT. 😉 hehehe...

    February Goal: 166 lbs *update*

    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!
    Feb. 17: 194.8 Yucky!
    Feb. 24: 195.5 Up, then moving back down. I am tweaking my carbs to under 50 and my cals to under 1400. I think this is the best spot for those severe glucose problems I’ve been having. Next week’s weigh-in should tell much.

    My Start is 241lbs my Jan 1 weight (returning to MFP after a long absence ) 2 months of hitting my goal achieved. Goals are pretty aggressive and I am adjusting based on prior month finish, I am getting ready for spring and on May 3rd I will participate in the Toronto Marathon for the third time and am raising funds to battle cancer (Princess Margaret Hospital is one of the top research hospitals in the world - if you want to help me hit my goal of $2500 message me and I will provide the link) (seems every time I set out to lose weight I do this - walking the half not running the full--- I am a long way from that fitness level ;) )

    2/24 Goal: 242 / Actual: 237.8 / -44.2 Over All / -22.2 for the Challenge. I think my body finally caught up with what is going on and put the brakes on the weight loss. Gave back a few pounds this week. That’s okay, Hopefully it is muscle and I am still under my Weekly Goal. Eating Healthy and Working Out but I Need to fine tune my calorie intake and get back to logging in food daily. More motivation for this week!

    WINTER WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE 2020 (January, February, March and April) A Continuation

    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL): 1/6/20
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 224 (350+ starting weight in 2019, 225 end of 2019).

    Jan. 6: 227 - (MFP current low at 223.4 and my normal weigh in Day is Wednesday so i'm adjusting key challenge schedule accordingly.) I just got back from a 2 week vacation and need a week to dump this water weight, I stayed close to calorie counts so actual weight should be 223-225 once thats gone)
    Jan. 15: 221.3 - Burned off the water weight and made some positive progress. Not as far as I’d like to have went considering but the holiday weight took longer to recede than I thought it would. I’m going to hold the goals and let it fade. I moved my Feb goal to something I think is attainable when factoring overage from Jan that may need to be caught up.
    Jan. 22: 231
    Jan. 29: 223


    January Goal: 215
    January Actual: 218

    Feb. 5: 216.5 - I had a really bad tooth infection and was put on fairly strong painkillers as well as antibiotics and had a quickly scheduled procedure in the course of 1 week in the third week of January. It showed up as a crazy amount of water weight but my logging stayed consistent and as hoped it still showed a drop when it all settled. Not sure if that little setback on overall loss makes Feb unattainable now but we’ll see. Regardless I should hit my final goal body fat percentage sometime in my goal timeframe even so!
    Feb. 13 - 214.5
    Feb. 19: 213 - Definitely not going to hit the original goal timeline for this challenge due to the beginning of year setbacks but still making solid steady progress. I adjusted the goal markers appropriately. I’m still 100% on track for my spring time goal.
    Feb. 26: 210.8 - Not shabby in the end for final weigh in Wednesday of February. Might hit 210 on the dot by end of the month the way it’s going. In between the goal and moved goalpost from delays. Either way i’ll take it!

    February Goal: 208 - Moved to 211

    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...
    Feb. 17: 168 lbs! Well, that's surprising...but not. I am finally back on track here. But I am updating my Feb goal to reflect what is possible in the next 2 weeks...maybe I will get past that, eh?! ...Fri Feb 21 ~ 169.6 lbs ~ huh. interesting, not sure how but.... 😩 ...
    Feb. 24: 167.8 lbs ~ *whew!* ...much better than I had feared...I do NOT wanna give up frequent family gatherings, no matter the food served...I love my family! so, there's THAT. 😉 hehehe... Fri Feb 28 ~ 167.6 lbs a little less lost than I expected but I'll take any loss here; I'll see what Monday brings! (feeling hopeful)

    February Goal: 166 lbs *update*
    February Actual: 167.6 lbs
