    Female Age 38, 5'10", Idaho

    Original starting weight Jan 2020: 322 lb
    January 2020 starting weight: 322 lb
    Goal weight this month January 2020: 310 lb
    Target goal weight: 175 lb

    Jan 3: 322 lb (pm weighing - always my heavier time of day)
    Jan 4: 319 lb (yay down, but morning weigh in - will continue on mornings from here out)
    Jan 5: 317.6 lb :)
    Jan 6: 314.4 lb (thinking there was a lot of water weight to start, but I'll take it!)
    Jan 7: 314.4 lb
    Jan 8: 314.4 lb
    Jan 9: 312.6 lb
    Jan 10: 312.4 lb
    Jan 11: 312.4 lb (hurray for downward trend! Shoveling snow is definitely helping that trend)
    Jan 12: 312.4 lb
    Jan 13: 312.4 lb (the scale stopped at 310.6 but I didn’t believe it so tried again and went with the higher weight. But am totally stoked about the possible lower number!)
    Jan 14: 312.4 lb
    Jan 15: 310.4 lb (yay!!!)
    Jan 16: 310.4 lb
    Jan 17: 310.6 lb
    Jan 18: 309.8 lb
    Jan 19: 309.8 lb
    Jan 20-24: scale broke but stayed under calories
    Jan 25: 314.4 lb (I choose to think the old scale was wrong all along and I’ve not gained)
    Jan 26: 314.4 lb
    Jan 27: 314.4 lb
    Jan 28: 313.4 lb
    Jan 29: 312.7 lb (getting so close to my goal, although I’m pretty sure that based on the about 5 lb difference to the old scale that I’ve hit the goal of 12 lbs, if not the 310 goal officially)
    Jan 30: 312.2 lb
    Jan 31: 311.3 lb

    I’d say I’m happy with my month overall. I almost hit the weight goal and am pretty sure that I did hit the loss goal with all the scale issues. Overall Win! Looking forward to next month!

    Starting weight: 170.8
    Starting weight this month: 140.2
    Goal weight this month: 134
    Target goal weight: I’m not sure yet, shooting for 130 first.

    August: lost 5.5 pounds
    September: lost 5 pounds
    October: lost 10 pounds
    November: lost 5 pounds
    December: lost 5.6 pounds

    This month will be way different then usual. Doing the Daniel Fast starting Jan 5th for 21 days, for spiritual reasons. So my workouts will probably suffer a little and I will probably lose weight fast in those 21 days.

    Jan 01: 140.2
    Jan 02: 139.8
    Jan 03: 139.8
    Jan 04: 138.4

    Jan 07: 137.4
    Jan 08: 136.0
    Jan 09: 135.6
    Jan 10: 133.4 🤯 I know this is just a lot of water weight and will even out over the next couple weeks, so I’m not going to change my goal.
    Jan 11: 134.0
    Jan 12: 133.6
    Jan 13: 134.0
    Jan 14: 134.8
    Jan 15: 134.2
    Jan 16: 133.8
    Jan 17: 133.0
    Jan 18: 132.0 shocked I’m still losing. I feel like I’m eating so much food, it’s just Daniel fast approved 🤷‍♀️
    Jan 19: 132.0
    Jan 20: 131.4
    Jan 21: 130.4 I think the training for a 10k is burning more calories than I realized and that’s why I’m losing so fast 😬 Saturday is the last day of the fast, so I’m sure I’ll start gaining some back after that.
    Jan 22: 130.4
    Jan 23: 130.8
    Jan 24: 130.6
    Jan 25: 130.8
    Jan 26: 129.2 fasting ended after prayer yesterday, had ice cream and a burger for dinner 🤪
    Jan 27: 130.8 ate awful yesterday. Movie popcorn, Taco Bell, cookies, etc. didn’t track 😬
    Jan 28: 131.6. Back on track, just bloated.
    Jan 31: 131.8 had 4 kids 4 and under the last 2 days so I couldn’t work out and decided to eat like crap 🤦🏼‍♀️ getting my crap together and back on workout schedule 😁

    Total loss for January: 8.4 pounds 👏🏻

    MFP Start weight: 160 lbs
    Started “just give 1 month” threads in Mid-Oct 2019 @ 157.4 lbs
    January start weight: 157.4 lbs
    January goal: 153 lbs
    Ultimate goal: 98 lbs, but that maybe too low. Main goal is to be healthier & stronger.

    October +2.6 lbs. (160)
    Nov. -2 lbs. (156.6 lbs)
    Dec. Stayed the same (155.6 lbs)

    Jan 1 = 157.2
    Jan 2 = 156.6
    Jan 3 = 156.6 I need to start back to planning my meals, again. Got way off during the holidays... with out of town guests & of course the holiday parties.
    Jan 4 = 157.4
    Jan 5 = 157.6 I haven't been trying at all the last couple days, but I just planned my meals, today. So, even if I don't show a loss the next couple days... I'm hoping that each day I'll be able to report that I was at or under calories...
    Jan 6 =156.8 lbs :) Yesterday, I stayed under in calories. I only had 24 oz. of water, though. Right now, my aim is for at least 32 oz. of water.
    Jan 7 = 155.6 lbs Stayed under in calories, yesterday. Only drank 24 oz of water, tho.
    Jan 8 = 156.8 lbs Did not stay under in calories, had a little stress eating or a lot of stress eating. Drank 32 oz of water
    Jan 9 = 158.2 lbs
    Jan 10 = 159 lbs. yep, I know. It's the stress, binge eating thang. Shtupid, me! I will get with the program!!!!!!!!!! I expect to be weigh up on Saturday, the 11th. But, please make this the last time that I do this!!! When I follow my plans, I usually lose & even feel better! Come on Elbee1 -- You can do this!!!!!!!!!! We all can do it!!!!!! I'm not gonna give up! Never give up! This is my year -- I know it is!!!!
    Jan 11 = 159 lbs Well...I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't gain even more. . . just stayed the same from yesterday.
    Jan 12 = 158 lbs :) Stayed under in calories, yesterday.
    Jan 13 = 157 :) Stayed under in calories, yesterday, too. Somehow I controlled my binge urge, tonight. Only over by 83 calories, today.
    Jan 14 = 156.2 :) Only over in calories, yesterday, buy 83. Been drinking 4 glasses of water daily. Almost stopped, today, & gave in to the craving of wonderful foods that were smelling so good as I was driving thru an area that has some wonderful restaurants. Then, later while driving got sleepy & had to eat to stay awake.. could have been much worse.
    Jan 15 = 156.2 :) Stayed under in calories, yesterday.
    Jan 16 = 156.8
    Jan 17 = 156.8
    Jan 18 = 156.8
    Jan 19 = 157.2 lbs :( And, back to where I started this month... Ain't gonna lose it by having birthday cake at someone's party & not staying under in calories. Today will be a great day!!!
    Jan 20 = 157.8 lbs :( Yesterday, was a terrible food day...
    Jan 21= 156.8 lbs :) Yesterday was a good food day!!!
    Jan 22 = 156.8 lbs :) I may not make my goal, but I hope that I end up with a loss of anything & not a gain. 155 would be great ...
    Jan 23 = 156.8 lbs :)
    Jan 24 = 156.8 lbs :)
    Jan 25 = 157.8 lbs :) Yes, I am happy with this because the last couple days have been crazy & stressful. I thought I had gained closer to 5 or 10 lbs...
    Jan 26 = 157.8 lbs :)
    Jan 27 = 157.8 lbs
    Jan 28 = 158.4
    Jan 29 159.4
    Jan 30 159.2
    Jan 31 158

    Gained .8 lbs.

    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!
    03 Jan: 148
    04 Jan: 146.8
    05 Jan: 145.8
    06 Jan: 146.8 —had buttered popcorn at the movies yesterday, ie, sodium-induced water weight!
    07 Jan: 146.8 —staying at a calorie deficit, but more salt plus PMS still, so I’m not letting go of the water! Patience...
    08 Jan: 147.4 Seriously! Admittedly, more salt again.
    09 Jan: 147 TOM today, finally!! Hopefully I can lose some of this now. I’ve been within my calorie goal, so something’s gotta give soon! (It usually takes 5 more days after TOM starts-boo)
    10 Jan: 146.4
    11 Jan: 146.2 Surprised, since I had Domino’s pizza last night—high sodium
    12 Jan: 146.8 Tearin’ it up in Jan! Lol
    13 Jan: 146.8 Uuuugggghhhhhhh!!!! I mean, patience...!?! Within my goal calories...
    14 Jan: 145.2 There’s some of it gone after TOM (Yep, takes 5 days after I start!). I’m still not down to my lowest in Dec, but hopefully soon.
    15 Jan: 146.2 Had sushi last night, so yeah, sodium!
    16 Jan: 144.6 Okay, finally back to my previous low from Dec. Now to actually lose some!
    17 Jan: 145.0
    18 Jan: 145.0 pizza last night—sodium!
    19 Jan: 145.4 ate at maintenance yesterday
    20 Jan: 146.8 unexpectedly had sushi out last night—stayed within calories, but sodium!
    21 Jan: 145.8
    22 Jan: 144.2 Finally, a new low! I was beginning to wonder if I really was eating at a deficit! I peed a LOT yeasterday, so yeah, water weight! Whoosh!
    23 Jan: 143.4 Wow, that’s...nice! It’s really coming off now. I’ve had lower sodium the past two days, so I’m sure there was some water weight masking a some true weight loss. It’ll probably bounce back up soon, but I’ll take it for now!
    24 Jan: 142.8 Nice, but weird
    25 Jan: 143.4 Homemade pizza last night
    26 Jan: 144 Went out to eat last night
    27 Jan: 146.8 Yep, ate all the food yesterday, including sushi, so like more than 4000mg sodium for the day. Went way over maintenance calories for the first time since New Year’s. Oh well, nothing a couple days at deficit calories can’t fix! But also... PMS, oh my!!

    I’ve eaten out more than usual lately, and we usually have Pizza Night once a week. Normally, when I’m trying to lose weight, I tend to shy away from restaurants so they won’t trip me up, but I need to figure out how to incorporate those times we do go out, since this is for the long haul. I’m not going to eat in for the rest of my life, or avoid pizza forever (gasp!). So, I’m happy enough if I can still enjoy the good food out, and also manage to lose, or at least maintain! One day eating 3000 calories is offset by two days at a 500- calorie deficit—worth it to me!!
    28 Jan: 146.4
    29 Jan: 145.6
    30 Jan: 145.6. PMS, so appetite is a struggle. I stayed just within maintenance calories yesterday. Hopefully just another couple of days before TOM, then my appetite goes way down (well, back to normal, anyway!)
    31 Jan: 145.2 At least includes ending in a good note! This is still almost a pound over my low from December, but it’s 2.6 lb down from January 1, so I guess it’s something! On to February!
