    First challenge for me on MFP. First time trying to lose weight without a paid sub (WW). So sad to have gotten back to my highest weight again. 😱 Need to get back to feeling good about myself which is really happens around 225lbs (I know a lot higher than some).

    Original starting weight - 257.8
    March starting weight - 257.8
    March l goal - 252
    Ultimate goal - 182

    You can do this! You’ve got the right tools you need and I’m sure you’ve learned much from WW. Use what they taught you and you will be back to where you feel good again before you know it!

    Well that wasn't a good week for my first challenge. But it could have been worse. Got in a 4 mile walk on Saturday and Sunday so that's a positive. Sticking to the plan of eating clean and working out everyday. I do have a well-meaning diet saboteur at work. He brings in snacks for the office and it's a small office so the table he puts them on is right behind me and I see it every day. I have no will-power especially if I see it all day. (It's packs of nuts, trail mix, granola bars). Any ideas how to get him to stop without coming across as a B****? There's 7 of us, he and 2 others eat the snacks.

    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.

    Those sound like pretty healthy snacks, maybe just set aside a few calories from your daily to have some once in awhile. I know that nuts have lots of calories, but they are good calories.

    I was out of town last weekend and couldn't weigh in on Friday. Last week was a really bad week for staying on task. I was exhausted and just didn't want to work on my diet. I took a couple of days off over the weekend and am starting fresh today. I'm setting a goal of stopping eating out at lunch during the work week. I think this will really help. :)
