    Female, 59, 5'3"
    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    January goal: 152.6
    May goal: 130.0
    Ultimate goal: 112-115

    January 02 - 159.5 - I haven't had a scale for a few days. I thought that it would be worse, but I will definitely take it. Using this as my start weight for the month.
    January 03 - 160.9 - I have some work to do to get off the holiday gain.
    January 04 - 159.6 - I really don't want to see the 160s again.
    January 05 - 159.6 - Hoping to see a drop soon.
    January 06 - 159.8
    January 10 - 161.2 - Going in the wrong direction!
    January 11 - 160.2
    January 12 - 162.8 - Officially back to my April 2019 weight, ouch
    January 13 - 164.0 - Still gaining apparently, I think that this is left over from the 11th when I went out for dinner.
    January 14 - 162.5
    January 15 - 159.5 - Happy to see this number this morning. Back to my starting weight for the month with half a month left hopefully to start to go in the other direction.
    January 16 - 159.6
    January 17 - 159.7 - The weekend is coming up and I always have more time for working out and cooking healthy food.
    January 18 - 159.6
    January 19 - 158.4 - ah, finally seeing a loss will motivate me to stay the course.
    January 20 - 159.0
    January 21 - 161.0 - No reason for this spike, maybe it is just too early in the morning.
    January 22 - 160.0
    January 23 - 157.5 - Well, that is more like it!
    January 24 - 157.5 - Going out to dinner tonight, so will keep the calories to a bare minimum during the day.
    January 25 - 157.2 - After Dinner out, kept the calories in check. Even when I do that, I sometimes I gain 3 pounds, probably because of restaurant sodium overload.
    January 26 - 158.8 - Friday's dinner out now showing up?
    January 27 - 160.1 - There are a few reasons for that even though I am feeling leaner today: No sleep due to cold/flu, I put 4 tablespoons of Black Bean Sauce into my stir-fry last night and didn't know until I tracked it that it was 6,893 of sodium!! I have been tracking my left over calories in the 10-day challenge and in 9 days I had 4,090 left over so really should be seeing a loss very soon.
    January 28 - 160.0
    January 29 - 159.0 - Losing only 1/2 pound per month is not acceptable to me, I hope to end the month better, 2 days left.
    January 30 - 159.2
    January 31 - 159.7

    Running tally for January Gain/Loss: Gain 0.2 pounds

    I love black bean anything, but yeah the sodium content is in outer limits. I made some fairly low carb Chili, put more veges in it. And only used one can of beans, and it was low sodium black beans, that I rinsed twice. And spread out over 12 servings, hubby likes as well. But it amazed me how much even then 3/4 cup serving had of sodium.

    My name is Donna & I am 59 years old. I am from the Midwest in the USA. 5’ 5.5” tall
    Original starting weight – 253
    December ending weight – 192.0
    January goal – 187.0
    Ultimate goal – 145 to 155 (We’ll see when we get closer)
    January results for Challenge: 0.4 Loss

    01-189.2 Off to a nice start. Happy new year everyone! Thanks to Tish for helping keep this going and a nice big welcome back to Samantha. I hope a lot of the personal issues have been resolved. {{hugs}} to you!
    08 –190.6 Went up higher than this, then back down. Got to keep things going a little more steady/consistent in the New Year. Time for me to kick butt and take names!
    15 – 189.7 It’s been a long road getting back down to this. My oh my, what a week it has been for my diabetes and weight gain! My goal this month was 187. I think I can do it!
    22 - 189.6 Went way up and then back down again this week. Absolutely nothing stable going on right now for me. I continue the brave fight!
    29 - 191.8 Traveled yesterday. Paid for it today. I tried to show some restraint so I am hoping this is fluid retention. Pizza. I am barely under my starting weight. I will work hard to show a better loss by weigh-in on the 31st.
    31 – 191.6 I ended 0.4 below my December 31 Ending weight so that is about the only plus for this round. No where near goal, but a small loss is still a loss. I’ll see you all in February!

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    December 31 starting weight - 146.4 (ten-day rolling average weight 145.2)
    January goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight).

    December 28: 144.6 (10-day average 145.0)
    December 31: 146.4 (10-day average 145.2)
    January 4: 144.8 (10-day average 145.3)
    January 11: 143.6 (10-day average 144.4)
    January 18: 139.8 (10-day average 143.5)
    January 25: 144.2 (10-day average 142.7)
    January 31: 144.8 (10-day average 144.6)
    February 1: 143.4 (10-day average 144.5)


    Total loss for January: I decided to add my December 31 weigh-in; I had only been showing December 28 since it was my normal weigh-in day. By scale, depending which day you look at, I either gained an insignificant 0.2 pounds or lost almost a pound. By average weight, I'm down a little bit. I had a Bagel Disaster a week ago and had a weight spike that I'm finally getting over. Whew. See you in the February thread!

    I worked super hard to eat between 1200 to 1400 calories and I had a 500 calorie deficit on Wed/Thurs. A lot of walking due to moving apartments really really helped.

    FYI: I have adjusted my ultimate goal because when I hit 118 last month, I realized that I still wanted to try to lower my body fat to a normal range. I have been back and forth with 33% and 34% for about a month. My goal is 30% and we will see what happens. I tend to carry my weight around my waist and hips.

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017
    January Starting Weight: 121.6 lbs
    January Goal: 118.6 lbs

    Jan 17: 120.8 at 5:30am ... at least we went to the gym this morning
    Jan 20: 120.2 at 7:30am ... a step in the right direction
    Jan 24: 120.4 at 5:15am ... not a bad gain
