    For February, last Tuesday's official weigh-in, 172.4 Today is Sunday and TUESDAYs are the weigh in day for me.

    Feb 1 Sad day-sister died no weighing, barely got out of bed
    Feb 2 Went to church, had pancakes and sushi, went to YMCA, that scale seems to say 181 my scale is under 184
    Feb 3 new scale says 181 did no exercise
    Feb 4 not saying what my scale said-just hoping it is close to right, husband's wedding ring does not seem to snag on joint today. no exercise but I did chase kid around gym and we will walk to meeting tonight (10 mins at most) I have to wait while he does chorus I can stroll or do steps during that. Pool tomorrow.
    Feb 5 my scale lies and I love it but can't use its sweet mark. did 45 mins in pool.
    Feb 6 scale lied some more, will check at Y, gonna do a water zumba and add 30 more mins to make up for missed days. Wonder if I am under-estimating food and will more carefully measure.
    Feb 7 179.6 on my new home scale but sigh, I know it is fudging. Ate out-feel sick. Will do pool exercises. Wonder if it really helps or if I am just playing at pool. Wiggled for 20 mins in DMV line if that is worth anything.
    Feb 8 too early to say much. cold and I will do the Y pool some today. 176.4 a.m.
    Feb 9 177 at least made chili not a great day 45 pool mins
    Feb 10 who knows maybe 177 or so, definitely depressed, having nightmares and I know it is losing sister. Pool exercise this evening 7:15-8:15 I haven't seen Jeopardy in forever. Might rain tonight (might not).
    Feb 11 please be less than 180 will report late this evening Cold and rainy with a wind. Going to buy kid tacos at Taco Bell.
    Feb 12 weigh in 175.4
    Feb 13 can't recall but it was less than 175.4
    Feb 14 -- home scale suggests as low as 172 this morning went to pool 1 hour and food tracked well
    Feb 15 -- the 171.8 holding at home, short time at pool, but went.
    Feb 16 -- up a pound, 172.4, ate high cal pork w/ bbq sauce, potatoes w/ plant butter, pork and beans. Gonna take fiber, you know what I mean! Tomorrow is going to be Monday all day long I know, will double gym time for today's absence
    Feb 17 - 173 there will be no protein shakes for breakfast as of tomorrow, 2 Y classes for today
    Feb 18 - scale is back to morning reading at 172, no more regular classes, only the pool stuff at Y, Protein shakes for suppa not breakfast.
    Feb 19 - 172.4
    Feb 23 - Missed a few days but I have been weighing and frittering hither and yon. I think it is perhaps possible that I could be hovering at 169.9. I mean that scale that likes me say it is. The Y scale is snooty, possibly inaccurate b/c it suggests not below 170. In any case, I did eat Oriental so there is realistically sodium in me that would not be had I eaten at home. I exercised a bit more and I will drink more tomorrow in hopes that I meet the goal below.

    Start weight this month: 144.6 lb

    Target goal weight: 140 lb

    August: -5.5 lb ( 167.6 lb)
    September: -3.5 lb (162.1 lb)
    October: -6.2 lb (158.6 lb)
    November: + 3 lb (152.4 lb)

    January: - 4.8 lb (144.6 lb)

    1 Feb - 144.8 lb
    2 Feb - 143 lb -Wow!! I haven't seen this number in about 10 years!! It's the lowest in my adult life! 😲👍Feels like a temporary drop, being almost 2 lbs in one day... But I'll bask in it while I can 😊
    3 Feb- 144.6 lb- Welp.... ok then lol Late dinner last night.
    4 Feb- 144.2 lb- This seems like a more realistic number. B)
    5 Feb- 143.2 lb- Unexpected, but I'm not going to argue lol Surprised to see this drop. I ended up having to weigh myself after lunch today.... so tomorrow might be even lower. Just have to wait & see!
    6 Feb- 142.4 lb- AWESOME! I must be doing something right!! I noticed my wedding rings have been feeling dangerously loose lately. Starting to worry about them slipping off :o Close to time to get them refitted!!
    7 Feb- 141.8 lb- Wow! I might be in switching into maintenance mode THIS MONTH!!! :open_mouth:
    8 Feb- no weigh day
    9 Feb- I weighed myself on a different scale this morning. Seemed to low to be a "real" number. I'll wait until tomorrow to weigh in on my regular scale to confirm or disprove it. *shrugs* I don't wanna get my hopes up!
    10 Feb- 141.4 lb - Yep! A much more reasonable number today.
    11 Feb- 142.4 lb- Extra grazing lastnight while packing lunches and making the kids dinner. TOM is coming....
    12 Feb- 142 lb- I'm ok with this. I feel pretty bloated today. Yuck!
    13 Feb- 141.4 lb- TOM started. Should see the water weight on the scale in 1 or 2 days. Was better about controlling my snacking lastnight. Kept in mind TOM was near and that I wasn't actually hungry, just hormonal.
    14 Feb- 141.8 lb- Yeeeeep
    15 Feb - No weigh day
    16 Feb- No weigh day. Curious to see what the scale says tomorrow morning! Factor #1, different scale than I used during the week. Factor #2, still TOM & holding water weight. *shrugs*
    17 Feb- 141.6 lb
    18 Feb- 143.2 lb- This has to be hormones and other factors at work!! I hiked 10 miles yesteray!!! & TOM ended. We'll see how long this water weight stays on. Onward and forward!
    19 Feb- 142.2 lb- Still not as low as I'd like it, but better than yesterday!..
    20 Feb- 142.4 lb
    21 Feb- 143.4 lb- Super irritated. WHY?!!?!?! Late dinner?? Having a drink lastnight?? Ugh. Whatever. My husband and I are going out of town this weekend. I'm going to enjoy it. Just count my losses when I return on Monday...
    22 Feb- No weigh day
    23 Feb- No weigh day
    24 Feb- 144.4 lb- Welp... not bad for a weekend of eating out and drinking! Worth it. But now, back to work!!

    Feb: - 0.4 lb

    Most recently, I have hoped but not achieved less than 170 #.

    Feb 19 - 172.4
    Feb 23 - Missed a few days but I have been weighing and frittering hither and yon. I think it is perhaps possible that I could be hovering at 169.9. I mean that scale that likes me say it is. The Y scale is snooty, possibly inaccurate b/c it suggests not below 170. In any case, I did eat Oriental so there is realistically sodium in me that would not be had I eaten at home. I exercised a bit more and I will drink more tomorrow in hopes that I meet the goal below.
    Feb 24 - 170 and holding Tomorrow is weigh in day so I ope there is no gain. Took fiber, exercised a bit, ate within goals, Fasting during usual hours. Just another day.

    JGM1M: FEBRUARY 2020

    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)
    Jan: - 1.3 Goal: under 150. Achieved on 11/01. Popped back up on three days thereafter.

    OSW: 227 (Mar 2014)
    CSW: 170.1 (1 Aug 2019)
    LW: 147.8 (Nov 2019)
    FEB SW: 150.1
    GW: Under 150
    Week 1
    Sat 01: 150.1
    Sun 02: 151 😏 Self inflicted. Late night snacking always has consequences
    Mon 03: 150.1 😁 Made better choices.
    Tue 04: 148.6 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 Gotta stick with the sensible head.
    Wed 05: 149
    Thu 06: 149.2
    Fri 07: 149.1
    Week 2
    Sat 08: 148.9
    Sun 09: 149.4
    Mon 10: 149.2 💁🏼 These are normal fluctuations, so reasonably happy with them.
    Tue 11: 148.8 💁🏼 Back on the HIIT. Did 30 minutes yesterday. Feeling it this morning.
    Wed 12: 148.4 👍🏻 Hopefully on a roll here.
    Thu 13: 148.8
    Fri 14: 148.6 💁🏼 Losing the last few lbs is so slow. 😂
    Week 3
    Sat 15: 149.6 🍫🍾🍨 Awck! Well, it was just one day. Back at it today!
    Sun 16: 150.1 *sigh*
    Mon 17: 148.6 💁🏼 Phew!!! Back to where I was before the weekend.
    Tue 18: 148.8 💁🏼 Normal daily fluctuations. Working on discarding my last 5 lbs, and on muscle toning, so not entirely unexpected. Clothes are getting loose again. Have had to stop wearing a couple of pairs of trousers as they wouldn't stay up. Will have to get the needle and thread out again! 😂
    Wed 19: 148.8
    Thu 20: 149.6
    Fri 21: 149.6
    Week 1: - 1
    Week 2: - 0.5
    Week 3: 0
    Week 4:
    Sat 22: 149.4 💁🏼I have been down and up again all week. Hope to make a better stab at it in the last week of the month.
    Sun 23: 149.2
    Mon 24: 149.2
    Tue 25: 148.8 💁🏼 Got my biopsy results last week, all clear, but getting my blood pressure checked today at 12.30.
    Wed 26:
    Thu 27:
    Fri 28:
    [/spoiler]

    Looking forward:
    • February: focusing on getting back to where I was pre-Christmas
    • 2020 Goal: Stabilise weight around 145
    • Strengthen strategies to reframe the tendency to use unhealthy snack food as a reward/treat.
    • have prepared healthy snacks available
    • cut down on eating between meals
