    This week's successes:
    • Strength training 2x
    • Walking
    • Kept fighting the war.
    • Got past 20% of the estimated weight loss needed to reach my goal.

    This week's challenges:
    • Really tempting to just stop. Need to keep fighting.
    • Overate sweets I'd brought into the house as an experiment (fun packs). Guess I'm not ready to try that yet.

    High Weight/Stats:
    252.0 pounds, 5'1" F

    Challenge Starting Weight:

    21.5% body fat
    (currently estimated around 140)
    Last week:
    Current Weight:

    Weekly change:
    -3.5 (partially hormone water retention change)

    Cumulative change (Month/Quarter/Year):

    This week's successes:
    • Stuck to my intake goals
    • Strength training 2x
    • Walking
    • Kept fighting the war.

    This week's challenges:
    • I'm down to walking as an option for extended LISS, and even that hurts.
    • Tired. Exhausted. Pain. Constant mental battle. Running on empty. Gotta keep fighting for every step.

    Q1 History:
    2020/01/01: 197.1
    2020/01/08: 192.5
    2020/01/15: 190.7
    2020/01/22: 187.2
    2020/01/29: 185.0
    Original post:
    I'm not sure I have 52 pounds of fat that I want/need to lose at this point, but I'm close enough that I'm going to call myself "in."

    Starting weight: 197.1 pounds
    (HSW: 252, MFP restart: 242.7)
    5'1" F

    Goal: 21.5% body fat
    (currently estimated at 140-145)

    Current weight: 197.1
    Total challenge weight lost: 0.0

    This week's successes: Getting back into deficit after a maintenance break.
    This week's challenges: Extremely low motivation (for life-ing in general -- not out of the norm, as I battle physical and mental health issues on an ongoing basis).

    A heads up: I will likely go faster than 1 pound/week for the first 4-ish months, then looking to tighten up and go into a slow loss followed by a recomp phase. I'll likely make 52 pounds of weight loss on the scale with some skin loss (hopefully), along with lean mass having to do with the support of the fat stores I have. I am aiming to maintain/increase muscle mass and bone density, so that may throw off the scale results. I do hope to reach my goal body fat percentage by the year's end, whatever scale weight that puts me at.
