    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL): 187 lbs August, 2019.
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT: 163.8 lbs

    May 4: Friday May 1 ~ starting @ 163.8 lbs ...gonna post it here cuz it’s the 1st of May, and I always weigh in on Fridays. But I’m also putting it @ my Winter Challenge cuz it’s also the last day of my Winter goal tracking. *whew!*
    I’m just gonna say here that I have no idea why this is?! How did I gain nearly 1.5 lbs when I did what any trainer would say was right?! All week...and yet, here I am. How disappointing, how frustrating. 🤬😭
    May 11: Friday May 8 ~ I was tempted to skip this week cuz I was getting frustrated, but I couldn’t help myself; I had to know. Well, this morning the scale said 163.4 lbs ...sorry I gave in!
    Saturday May 9 ~ my daughter said the scale is not the most important thing...so I weighed in again, just mostly curious...and lo! The scale actually updated my weight DOWN to 162 lbs!! Also, measuring myself (first time in 3 weeks, been out walking a LOT) I lost another 1.5” from my waist & another .5” from my hips!! I guess this was all worth it after all... talk to you all next Friday! 😎
    May 18: Well, I actually DID weigh myself this past Friday, May 15, and my weight was back up to 163.2 lbs...but after having back troubles all week *hence, no workouts to speak of!* and going over my cal.count limit twice, I was not too surprised.
    Today, Tuesday May 19 I am feeling better but giving it this one last day before I jump back in to my walking regimen,...besides, it’s been raining for the past 3 days so there’s no where to go anyways lol. The treadmill, of course, stands unused in the spare room...but it will still be there tomorrow!! So I’ll give it a try in the morning....
    May 25: Friday May 28 ~ I’m actually really behind here, but as my weight didn’t change at all that last week (so far) I kinda didn’t bother...still @ 163.2 lbs as of this past Monday, May 25. Today is Thursday, May 28. I will weigh in again tomorrow, and hopefully be down, ...and ahead! (Obviously, I won’t make my goal this month...😢)
    SO...weighed in again this morning (Friday May 29) and I actually LOST 1.4 lbs...so at least NOW it appears I am back on track, esp happy about that cuz it seems that the entire month of May was not good for losing (I’m not even sure why?) ...but at least I can say that, pounds staying pretty much the same, I did lose inches!! So I’ll just take what I can get! LOL

    May Goal: 158 lbs
    May Actual: 161.8 lbs

    June 1: Friday June 5 ~ 161.2 lbs ~ no real workouts to speak of, but LOTS of walking!! ...if I can I will weigh in again on Monday June 8...
    June 8: 159.6 lbs !!! I finally broke into the 150s!! 😂 I feel like celebrating! My inches lost so far=8 inches overall, my BMI has gone down by 4.4 points, and I’ve lost a total of 27.4 lbs !!!! Lots of walking last week & lots of yard work/gardening ~ gonna keep this up FOR SURE! 😄
    June 15: It's actually Friday, June 19 ~ weighed in this morning @ 159.2 lbs ~ total of 8" LOST overall so far...a little behind in weighing in but as long as it keeps going DOWN then 1or2 days missed don't matter!
    June 22: Friday, June 18 ~ 159.2 lbs
    June 29: no weigh-in today!

    June Goal: 157 lbs (updated)
    June Actual: 159.6 lbs

    July 6: 159.6 lbs
    July 13: 160.4 lbs ~ I am so tired of these plateaus that I keep hitting...I don't believe I have lost as much as I could have, if I wasn't being so tempted by all the deliveries, carry-outs, etc...my fault, I know, but others keep putting these things in front of me...I lose track of calories by the end of the day; plus, I cannot get much exercise in this humidity, with my asthma...it's a never-ending cycle...I AM RESOLVED: TODAY IS MY NEW BEGINNING. No more!!

    Week Progress: -2.2
    Challenge Weight loss: -23.3 lbs


    It’s been a good week. On Saturday we traveled to a state park and went on a short hike. I wanted to go longer but it was long enough for my small people. We want them to enjoy themselves, not see hiking as torture but fun, exciting, & adventurous. We do need to hike more often, it’s good for the outdoor soul. I had a good run yesterday, I felt pretty good, kept my heart rate in a good place, breathing good, and managed a 6 mph pace. This is great progress. Today it’s 10%incline walk day and 30 mins on the bike. I’ve figured out a healthier alternative when we order chinese(once a month treat kind of thing) I love beef& broccoli and chicken and broccoli; So I can order light on the sauce. I can’t believe I never thought of that. I’m a big fan of either dish as I love broccoli(I tend to like the dishes with lots of meat and crunchy veggies). But it helps with the salt, along with the sugar/calories from the sauce. I’m not sure why it took me this long to figure this out but it makes me happy I can now choose something that is a little better for me and still be the delicious chinese American food I love.

    05/11 I adjusted all my goals downward a bit. I initially set them as 5lbs a month as per my start weight but I dropped a few by the first check in so I changed them. A bit more hopeful but we'll see how it goes.
    05/20 Not an auspicious week given zero loss but hey I haven't gained either and I'm not going to mention the number of Reese peanut butter cups I've eaten in the last three days.
    05/25 I'm going to optimistically think it's actually 169.5 but an old scale isn't really the best for small measurements. There is still one week left of may so my June 1st and May actual will be the same.
    06/01 Made it to my May goal if only just. Those pounds just didn't want to go. Hopefully this month goes a bit smoother.
    06/09 Good week. More time walking to/from work with this nice weather rather than on the road probably helped.
    06/15 ok week. Ruining my good start this week by eating an ice cream sandwich for breakfast today. Totally worth it😄
    06/23 Couldn't get on here yesterday mfp kept telling me Community was unavailable🤷‍♀️ Weighed in at 164 yesterday though and somehow after eating over my cal yesterday this morning my scale says down another half pound (I think anyway, it's an old analogue not digital scale. I can be hopeful anyway🤣)
    06/29 162?? I don't know how I managed that cause I over ate multiple days this week but maybe I didn't add the right amount of exercise calories 🤷‍♀️ Oh or possibly overestimated my calories. I don't have a food scale so with foods that aren't easily measured from larger packages I kind of well Guess? Like ribs. I totally had ribs and guessed the hell out of how much I ate😅
    07/02 Just on to put up June's final / July's start. Made it to a pound under my June goal. Very happy.
    07/06 Slow and steady as she goes. Going to drop off my best friend's birthday stuff sometime this week hopefully. Haven't seen her since new years day cause of all this social distancing. I hope she notices I've lost weight since we last got together. 😅I also kind of hope she doesn't say anything cause I'm so freaking awkward like that.
    161 marks 25lbs down since I started mfp end of February😶🙂(I'm celebrating with an ice cream cone😅)

    07/13 Ok maybe I should have skipped the ice cream last week😅 still no gain though so I'm ok with it.
