    28th to 4th February

    Starting weight: 187
    Goal weight: 155
    Current weight: 179
    Total weight lost: 8 lb
    This week's successes: I kept to my fitness goals.
    This week's challenges: Went on a day trip to London to see King Tut Exhibition - ate complete rubbish all day. Must try to take own food if I do stuff like that. I mean, I ate a cheese and onion roll, crisps, chocolate cookie, I only have myself to blame for the scales not moving the right way.

    Good luck for the week ahead all

    New to MFP this year (yes, a New Years joiner) but a tired old hand at the diet cycle. Have been absorbing new lessons and mindsets and intend to break the cycle for good. Goal is not how much I lose, but how much I keep off forever! However, would still love to shed 52 this year and finish my 50th year much slimmer than I started...

    2020 Starting weight: 209.5
    First goal: 197
    Ultimate Goal weight: 148

    01/01: 209.5
    01/12: 207.0
    01/29: 205.0
    02/05: 202.2
    Total weight lost: 7.3

    This week's successes: sticking to my habits! (Track, exercise, journal-plan). So far yielding results so am happy

    This week's challenges: this past week it was getting food poisoning...helped drop some weight, but the challenge was to get back on track with good eating and exercise when I could eat again. Very proud of myself that I didn’t start binging on rice and soft bread “because my stomach hurts”.

    This coming week it will be in finding low density, low calorie, nutrient rich food...that I find palatable...while on a 12 day international business trip. I’m packing some protein bars and oatmeal, but any other tips welcome.

    I would like to join this challenge. I have been at my goal weight a couple of times in the past and know how good it feels. As I get older (57), it is getting harder to do the things I need to do to lose and maintain the lower weight. I am looking forward to reaching my goal again this year. Let's do this!

    Starting weight: 177.6 (January 1, 2020)
    Goal weight: 130.0
    Current weight: 168.4 (Friday, February 7th)
    Total weight lost: 9.2 lbs
    This week's successes: Last weekend was good. Stayed on track. Didn't have to lose the weight gained on the weekend during the week so was able to see a low weight I haven't seen in awhile.
    This week's challenges: TODAY - Chocolate Tour - My company is taking part and we are handing out homemade chocolate chip cookies. So I get to be around that all day. Rest of the week to be determined.

    Weigh-in day - Friday

    Starting weight: 143.9 kg (317.2 lbs) 4th Jan 2020
    Goal weight: 118.4
    Current weight: 138.3 kg (304.9 lbs) 08 Feb 2020
    Total weight lost: 5.6 kg (12.3 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 put on 400g which really sucks... It could partially be because of the weight training but I think it’s mostly water weight.

    It is always something, isn’t it? Superbowl, then Valentine’s Day, then 2 weeks of vacation for me. Hey, those are all very “Good” problems to have. So, I will gladly deal with them.

    This week’s challenges: Valentine’s Day
    This week’s successes: Survived Superbowl weekend with minimum damage

    I weighed in yesterday, but did not get an opportunity to post until today.

    Starting weight: 244 lbs (12/29/19)
    Goal weight: 192
    Current weight: 236
    Total weight lost: 8 lbs. :)

    This week's successes: Keeping breakfast and lunch very low calorie. Exercised everyday. Used my substitute adult coloring instead of snacking, in the evenings.

    This week's challenges: I did not lose anything last week but I am still ahead of the challenge of one pound per week weight loss. Too many stops at fast food joints due to too much stress this week (pet cat to emergency vet on Tues.; lots of little projects getting ready for my daughter-in-law's baby shower next month and my trip to TX next week; my birthday and sadness due to some circumstances beyond my control; snow needing shoveled, etc, etc).

    This week's plan is shaping up to be busy, as well, but I am committed to staying on track.
