    Total loss for March - 0.4 LBS

    I always get 2 weight spikes in my cycle. At TOM and at Ovulation. This is the only explanation I have for today’s weight. Wow! I can’t even. It’s huge this month.

    I love Zumba. I have found a modern twist on it, Youtube. Fitness Marshall. Super fun. Let me know if you try it.

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    March 2 starting weight - 144.0 (ten-day rolling average weight 144.3)
    March goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

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

    March 2 (standing in for February 29): Back from vacation and... 144.0 (I don't trust the ten day average since I have been gone ten days and it would calculate from the nine days before I left, but it would be 144.3)
    March 7: 143.8 (10-day average 143.7)
    March 14: 146.2 (10-day average 145.2)
    March 21: 147.0 (10-day average 146.7)
    March 28:
    March 31:


    Total loss for March`: March hasn't been good to me - up 2.5 pounds. At least I'm still in my maintenance range, but moving farther from my goal the last couple weeks. Some is stress eating. I need to be mindful of that and CUT IT OUT.

    UPDATE: Ok now I’m thinking this is more than ovulation spike. This may also be confinement gain. Sigh.

    Female, 59, 5'3"
    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    February end weight 154.4
    March goal: 150.3
    May goal: 138.1
    Ultimate goal: 112-115

    Sunday March 01 - 155.3 - Starting up almost a whole pound higher than my February end weight, but definitely going to stay the course. I must have had something salty today, because I had 3 litres of water and am still thirsty, I normally have about 1.5 litres (=6 8oz glasses).
    Monday March 02 - 156.8 - My consumption and exercise calories out were on point, but I think that the jump could be due to liquid from yesterday and sodium.
    Wednesday March 04 - 156.1 - Those 140s are looking elusive, but I will continue to try
    Thursday March 05 - 154.8 - MFP said 139 in 5 weeks. I don't believe that, but it gives me hope : - )
    Friday March 06 - 155.5
    Saturday March 07 - 155.2
    Sunday March 08 - 156.4 - Burned lots of calories yesterday so still had calories left over, but had pita pizza and drinks, so up over a pound. Hopefully lots of it is just salt, we'll see how the next couple of days go to undo this.
    Monday March 09 - 156.7 - Maybe tomorrow this will go back down, I will work out extra today.
    Tuesday March 10 - 157.2 - Not sure why I am gaining, hoping to see it come back down soon, I am working at it.
    Wednesday March 11 - 155.3 - back to day one of this month weight, I'll take it.
    Thursday March 12 - 154.2 - Much better.
    Friday March 13 - 152.1 - New low! Really happy to see this number today.
    Sunday March 15 - 154.5 - Right on track, so hoping to see this drop tomorrow.
    Tuesday March 17 - 156.7 - Ouch
    Wednesday March 18 - 156.1 - I almost let discouragement of this process get to me yesterday. I have to keep logging daily and dig deep to keep on doing this.
    Thursday March 19 - 155.4
    Friday March 20 - 156.5 - Ribs dinner last night.
    Saturday March 21 - 157.2 - Still being self-indulgent.
    Sunday March 21 - 157.8 - I have been burning lots of calories exercising and hiking, I will have to stop eating everything that I feel like having and get back on track.
