    Starting weight: 143.9 kg (317.2 lbs) 4th Jan 2020
    Goal weight: 118.4
    Current weight: 137.9 kg (304 lbs) 01 Feb 2020
    Total weight lost: 6 kg (13.2 lbs)
    This week's successes: I’ve been saying no to cakes and biscuits at work. Also avoiding the high carb foods that my fiancé has been eating in favour of low carb/keto meals.
    This week's challenges: I’ve been very low energy this week. So I’ve only worked out twice in the whole week. I also apparently hate cardio with a passion so I will be sticking with weight training from now on. I’ve also been extremely hungry all day every day. So I’ve been finding it extremely hard to not eat all the time.

    Starting weight:263 lbs
    Goal weight:140
    Current weight:262.6 lbs
    Total weight lost: .4 lbs
    This week's successes: I have 2 coworkers who are helping to keep me accountable and talking about how we can begin to take more advantage of everything offered from forums. I have started with walking for 30 min over my lunch break everyday during the week. I have also tried to cut down eating times to only allow 20 min for each meal and no snacks between meals. It is not always easy but I am going to try my hardest.
    This week's challenges: This week has been rough as I have officially logged every item i have consumed. I am having an issue with my tracker telling me I am under calories when I have a limit of 1500 calories a day and I am consuming them. I am trying to lose not maintain my current weight. still working on figuring out everything but excited about my new Fitbit, the new scale I just got as well as a the fact that several of the women in my office want to help me with my journey.

    Current Weight:

    Weekly change:

    Cumulative change (Month/Quarter/Year):

    This week's successes:
    • Strength training 2x
    • Walking
    • Honesty in logging
    • Not gaining

    This week's challenges:
    • First time fully off the train since September. The downhill slide (surpluses) started Sunday, but the habitual slide started last Friday.
    • Sick
    • Struggling to get things back in line. This is a somewhat success, though, as I did not go into a binge-restrict cycle this time. The struggle is a new one of learning how to get myself back in line without getting excessively restrictive.

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

    Challenge Starting Weight:

    21.5% body fat
    (currently estimated around 140)

    Current Weight:

    Weekly change:

    Cumulative change (Month/Quarter/Year):

    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.

    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
    2020/02/05: 184.1
    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.
