I thought I might end up and 135, but the quarantine really threw me for a loop. I’m back to logging all my food and exercising consistently. Hoping the scale reflects some of that hard work soon. See you in the summer challenge!

    I actually weighed 150.5 yesterday and the day before, but overate Sunday. I’m very happy that at the end of the challenge I turned it around and still lost weight in the past 4 months rather than gained.
    I’m going to take a break and not post in the Summer challenge, but my next goal is 145 by my 4 year anniversary, August 20th.
    Good Luck, everyone!

  • mtaratootmtaratoot Member Posts: 3,276 Member Member Posts: 3,276 Member

    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 have been in maintenance since mid-2018. 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.

    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: Away from scale
    Feb. 28: Away from scale
    Mar. 2: Back from vacation and... 144.0 (I don't trust the ten day average since I have been gone ten days and it would calculate from the nine days before I left, but it would be 144.3)

    February Goal: Stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.
    February Actual: Coming back from vacation, I expected to gain more, so I'm fine with where I am; on to ultimate goal again!

    MARCH:
    Mar 2: 144.0 (10-day average 144.3)
    Mar 7: 143.8 (10-day average 143.7)
    Mar 14: 146.2 (10-day average 145.2)
    Mar 21: (Winter ends March 19 at 20:49 Pacific Standard Time): 147.0 (10-day average 146.7)
    Mar 28: 143.8 (10-day average 146.3)
    Mar 31: 146.6 (10-day average 146.2)

    March Goal: Stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.
    March Actual: March hasn't been good to me - ended the month up 2.5 pounds. At least I stayed in my maintenance range.

    APRIL:
    Apr 4: 146.0 (10-day average 146.0)
    April 11: 148.4 (10-day average 147.8)
    April 18: 147.8 (10-day average 148.8)
    April 25: 149.0 (10-day average 148.7)
    April 30:

    April Goal: Same as all the other months: Stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.
    April Actual: At least I seem to have stopped gaining. Again.

    Challenge Weight loss goal: Range between 142-148
    Actual Weight loss for the challenge: By scale weight I was within that range only two days. My ten-day average weight has been just over the top of that range all week. I have a secondary goal of 140-150, and I'm still ok there, but.... I'm still in my larger (ten pound) goal range by scale and average, just not by as much as I prefer, and I'm outside my tighter (six pound) goal range. Stress eating, easy access to kitchen, love to cook.... That damn stress from that damn virus. I think I may just say I'm ok at my current weight and move my goal to where I am, because I still feel ok. Nah. I'll just continue to be frustrated :smile:

    Feb. 24: 196.5

    February Goal: 195
    February Actual: 196.5 (Feb 29: 195.9) pretty close to goal!

    Mar. 2: 196.5 Nothing! actually a small gain from Leap Day! I've worked hard the past few weeks so this is depressing
    Mar. 9: 196.5 Getting discouraged! I've really upped the game with exercise and nothing is coming off
    Mar. 16: 196.5 YOWL! I swear I was down to 194.6 on Saturday! I'm getting discouraged.
    Mar. 23: 194.6! Finally! After a month of nothing!

    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!
    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.
    Feb. 29: 198.6 Out last night with a friend. I only ate half and boxed the rest for my son. But carbs are carbs and they are still my enemy.

    February Goal: 184.0
    February Actual: 198.6


    Mar. 1: 199.8 A new month, a new start, a new me! Let’s go everybody!
    Mar. 2: 201.6 Emergency travel yesterday. Limited movement and food choices. Back home today and motivated!
    Mar. 9: 200.2 Better.
    Mar. 16: 200.7 Things are getting very rough here in Michigan in regards to the Coronavirus. I’ve got to stop stress eating and grazing!
    Mar. 23: 201.7 Our state is now on lockdown. Only allowed out for essentials such as grocery/pharmance. All non-essential businesses are closed until further notice including all manufacturing.
    Mar. 30: 203.5 Failing miserably. I hate to blame it on this virus, but not being able to get out for my long daily walk and being here near the fridge is playing havoc on every single one of my weaknesses. I’ve got to get my *kitten* together!
    Mar. 31: 203.5 boy oh boy. Did I EVER fall short of goal. It’s time to get serious.

    March Goal: 178.0
    March Actual: 203.5

    Apr. 1: 203.2
    Apr. 6: 202.8 A small start on a big journey that continues. Finally a little progress! Clearly I will not make goal, but I would like to turn this train around!
    Apr. 13: 203.7 I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Now, back to basics!
    Apr. 20: 202.5 Better!
    Apr. 27: 203.2 Phooey! Travel kills my efforts!

    2/03 Goal: 248 / Actual: 244.4 / -37.6 Over All / -15.6 for the Challenge. 4 Workouts Achieved & 2 PT sessions. A little more movement in the neck. Swinging a golf club not so good, need to strengthen lower back.

    2/10 Goal: 246 / Actual: 238.6 / -43.4 Over All / -21.4 for the Challenge. 4 Workouts Achieved & 2 PT sessions. Neck getting a little better. Golf swing with weighted training club seems a little better. Maybe ready to hit a few balls on the range.

    2/17 Goal: 244 / Actual: 234.8 / -47.2 Over All / -25.2 for the Challenge. Fun Week but a tough one on the diet. 2 Days in the Bahamas… Stone Crab Claws & Mustard Sauce & Conch Salad! And 2 days out of town with family. Worked hard this weekend to get back under last week’s weight and actually lost a few pounds. Managed to get in 4 workouts & 1 PT session. 230 in my sights!

    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.

    3/02 Goal: 240 / Actual: 237.6 / -44.4 Over All / -22.4 for the Challenge. Hope everyone had a great week! I’ve been eating healthy and exercising but still stuck at 237-238. Going to have to really watch my daily calorie intake and cut back on portions some. Still under weekly goal weight so that is a positive.

    3/09 Goal: 238 / Actual: 236.8 / -45.2 Over All / -23.2 for the Challenge. Hello All. Hope you had a good week. It has been a battle for me. My body is not making it easy for me. Finally got my neck feeling better and now I’m having issues with my middle and lower back. Workouts haven’t had the intensity I would like. Still managed to lose a pound and stayed under weekly goal weight.

    3/16 Goal: 236 / Actual: 235.2 / -46.8 Over All / -24.8 for the Challenge / -1.6 this week. Had a good start to the week but was out of town Thursday, Friday and Saturday and ate out a lot and missed a few workouts. Got back on track Saturday night and Sunday to get back under my weekly goal.

    3/23 Goal: 234 / Actual: 237.4 / -44.6 Over All / -22.6 for the Challenge / +2.2 this week. Good news / Bad News… Good news: I was able to play 2 rounds of golf and my neck and back are doing well. Bad news: (other than the world shutting down for Corona Virus) I was out of town for a couple days and ate out and take out and I gained a couple pounds back and I am above my weekly goal weight for the first time since I started November 1st. Doesn’t help that my gyms (even the community gym at my complex) are closed. Really need to bear down and stick to healthy eating and get my exercise in this week and get back on track with weekly weight goal! No Excuses!

    3/30 Goal: 232 / Actual: 234.4 / -47.6 Over All / -25.6 for the Challenge / -3.0 this week. Hope everyone is staying safe and virus free. Even more reason to eat healthy and get your vitamins and minerals in and keep your immune system strong. Tried to keep from splurging this week and was able to get 3 pounds back. Need to get some good cardio in this week and get back to my weekly goal weight.

    4/06 Goal: 230 / Actual: 233.3 / -48.7 Over All / -26.7 for the Challenge / -1.1 this week. Hello everyone. I hope you and your family and friends are staying safe. Hang in there! Things will get better! It has definitely been a challenge to stay active since everything is shut down. I was able to get in a 7-mile run and a 22-mile bike ride to get in some cardio. Doing some stretching and core exercises and practicing the golf swing at home.

    4/13 Goal: 228 / Actual: 232.5 / -49.5 Over All / -27.5 for the Challenge / -.8 this week. Slacked off this week. Gotta be more consistent with my exercises. Got in some bike rides and some golf swing practice. Eating pretty healthy but need to cut back on my portions.

    4/20 Goal: 226 / Actual: 233.6 / -48.4 Over All / -26.4 for the Challenge / +1.1 this week. Started the week off good but out of town for a few days got me off my routine. Was good to get away on the boat for a couple days… 11 tuna, 4 dolphin, 3 kingfish!

    4/27 Goal: 224 / Actual: 231.8 / -50.2 Over All / -28.2 for the Challenge / -1.8 this week.

    Phase 1 Recap:
    #1 Goal: Weight 224: Well… I wasn’t able to reach my Phase 1 Weight Goal but I did reach the -50lb loss mark so pretty happy with that.
    #2 Goal: Heal my Neck & Back without Surgery – Achieved.
    #3 Goal: Play Golf – Achieved, back in the swing of things and able to play or practice on a regular basis (If courses are open)
    Phase 2 Goal: Run a 5K: Achieved. I actually skipped the 5K and went right to the 10K. Definitely didn’t break any records but got it done!

    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 have been in maintenance since mid-2018. 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.

    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: Away from scale
    Feb. 28: Away from scale
    Mar. 2: Back from vacation and... 144.0 (I don't trust the ten day average since I have been gone ten days and it would calculate from the nine days before I left, but it would be 144.3)

    February Goal: Stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.
    February Actual: Coming back from vacation, I expected to gain more, so I'm fine with where I am; on to ultimate goal again!

    MARCH:
    Mar 2: 144.0 (10-day average 144.3)
    Mar 7: 143.8 (10-day average 143.7)
    Mar 14: 146.2 (10-day average 145.2)
    Mar 21: (Winter ends March 19 at 20:49 Pacific Standard Time): 147.0 (10-day average 146.7)
    Mar 28: 143.8 (10-day average 146.3)
    Mar 31: 146.6 (10-day average 146.2)

    March Goal: Stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.
    March Actual: March hasn't been good to me - ended the month up 2.5 pounds. At least I stayed in my maintenance range.

    APRIL:
    Apr 4: 146.0 (10-day average 146.0)
    April 11: 148.4 (10-day average 147.8)
    April 18: 147.8 (10-day average 148.8)
    April 25: 149.0 (10-day average 148.7)
    April 30: 150.4 (10-day average 149.1)

    April Goal: Same as all the other months: Stay at my long term goal of 143 with small fluctuations.
    April Actual: Sigh. I sure didn't succeed in April.

    Challenge Weight loss goal: Range between 142-148
    Actual Weight loss for the challenge: At least my average weight is still in my larger ten-pound maintenance range, but not by much.

    I am eating too well. I'm enjoying it; that's for sure. I am buying lots of produce and other perishable foods on my once-a-week trip out in public. I shop on days that I go to the office for a few hours. I hate wasting food, so I make tasty meals. Then some days I eat too much. You don't have to guess the result; just look at my posts from this month. The number that represents my mass is increasing. I am back to being 5% over goal weight, and my trending weight is about to bounce out of my maintenance range.

    "F" You SARS-CoV-2!

    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

    Mar. 06: 166.6 lbs (going back to FRIDAY-only weigh-ins!!)
    Mar. 13: 167.2 lbs ~ Well that's what I get for going over my cal. limit 2 days in a row & not getting any work-out times in nearly all week!! new resolution here..... 🤞...
    Mar. 20: 165.2 lbs ~ signs of HOPE HERE! :)
    Mar. 27: 166.4 lbs

    March Goal: 162 lbs
    March Actual: 166.4 lbs

    Apr. 3: 164.6 lbs At Least this month is starting out on a happy note! This is just going too slow for me...I need to step things up here!!
    Apr. 10: 164.0 lbs ~ not as much as I had thought but still...as long as it’s heading DOWN on the scale I don’t care! 😉
    Apr. 17: 162.4 lbs ~ back to my much-needed work-out schedule...and it paid off, I see lol
    Apr. 24: 162.2 lbs ~ honestly, I’m a little surprised. I have been very careful all week & working out nearly every day...but oh well, it is what it is...

    April Goal: 160 lbs
    April Actual: 163.8 lbs 🥺
