    Journey so far:
    Jan 2015: I joined MFP at 227 lbs and gradually reduced
    Oct 2016: finally hit my target of 155
    Dec 2018: Had gradually wavered up again to 170s
    Jan 2019: still wavering round 170
    July 2019: bounced up and down between 160 and 170
    Aug 2019: Gave myself the proverbial kick up the a** and buckled down!
    Oct 2019: Set new goal weight of 150 by year end
    Nov 2019: Hit goal late Nov. I’m now focusing on increasing strength workouts
    Aug: -8.31 (a lot of this was holiday weight gained in July)
    Sept: -4.71
    Oct: -4.2
    Nov: -2.2 (Strength workouts temporarily slowing progress)

    Dec: + 4.4 (Christmas indulgences)

    OSW: 227 (Mar 2014)
    CSW: 170.1 (1 Aug 2019)
    LW: 147.8 (Nov 2019)
    JAN SW: 151.4
    GW: Under 150

    Wed 01 Jan: 151.4
    Thu 02 Jan: 151.6 Not the best start. We got Series 8 of GoTs for Christmas and DH opened a box of liquorice allsorts as we were watching the first episode last night. I was under goal, but the sugar has given me a touch of bloat this morning.

    Starting weight: 163.4 lb
    Start weight this month: 147.8
    Goal weight this month: 140
    Target goal weight: 128

    August: lost 1.2 lb
    September: lost 4.2 lb
    October: lost 3.7 lb
    November: lost 3.9 lb
    December: lost 4.3 lb (but ended high due to New Year’s)

    (I use Happy Scale, so the losses above are determined by moving average. I will post my actual daily weight below.)

    01 Jan: 147.8 (my lowest in Dec was 144.6) Definitely indulged for a couple of days at the beach for New Year’s with family. I expect this to go down quickly after a few days back to my normal routine....hopefully, anyways!
    02 Jan: 148.8 I ate within my deficit calories yesterday, so this increase is either from DOMS (I’m still extremely sore from a hard workout on Tuesday), or it’s PMS a lil early? Oh well, patience!

    Hi All, I am happy to be back. I stopped posting at the end of November when life got so crazy and i have gained 67 lbs! I did weigh in every day however so I guess that is a good thing! From now on I am committed to posting every day! My goal this month is 1.5 lbs per week. I am also committing to swimming at least 3times every week and walking 2 days (or swimming). Good luck to all of us!

    Starting weight 189
    Start weight this month 176

    It works over time. The ups and down but hopefully a downward level overall.

    I get pretty bad sugar cravings at night. What are some recommendations to help with that?

    I started off a sugar addict so I chose a set amount of healthy snacks for in between meals through the day and evening and left myself the choice of which ones to choose at the time but always leave some for the evening. I had one 30-50g packet of jelly lollies a day when I started out as well and I always chose to save that for the evening. Have discontinued that now as I don’t need the sugar any longer but I still have as part of my in between meal snacks a 25gm pack of mixed nuts/dried fruits, a 60gm packet of popcorn, a iced tea drink of 400mls (I allow myself two small non water drinks a day to cut down on sugar - usually have orange juice at breakfast), a packet of wheat chrisps, a fruit and a yougurt. I don’t necessarily have all that just choose what I want and they are small chunks out of my calorie count. Th evenings eventually get easier but they are the hardest.

    I’ve lost nearly 25kg(55lb) in five months.

    Not sure where you are from so products could be different. But, you could try the Jello chocolate pudding cups; I also make sugar free jello and add a 'no sugar added' fruit cup of peaches (or whatever fresh fruit you prefer). You could make the jello into serving size containers to make it easier to grab from the fridge. Just make sure your calorie count for the day allows for the sugar craving at night.

    Hang in there, I agree it does work over time and its natural to have gains and losses. And I also second using the Happy Scale app, it shows the highs and lows but it averages it out right in the middle to see the progression you're making over time.

    December was not my best month. I finally had reached maintenance the first couple of weeks of the month and then lost it after that. I am up about 5 pounds from where I want to be. Hoping a lot of this is water weight and will drop fairly quickly.


    Jan 1: 143.1
    Jan 2: 143.7 there is the rest of my alcohol weight from New Year's Eve.
