    @syreina I'm not a counter of steps, I don't have a fitbit or anything. I just look under the heart thing on my iPhone (not the most tech savvy gal either) but how on earth do you get that many steps? I walk/run/trot about 6 miles a day and my phone says maybe 11-13 thousand steps. Maybe my phone isn't the most accurate way to measure that sort of thing. I got a heart rate monitor but saw your steps and then learned I could check them on my phone so I started doing that. Just wondering about its accuracy.

    Super job on getting to goal and maintenance!

    I have an app on my phone. You put in your weight, it tracks your steps and gives you a calorie count. I use that number in mfp. I don't have a fitbit.
    I work out lots in other ways every day, but walking really loosens everything up and I think helps with water retention too. It just takes a lot longer to burn calories than say...Zumba (which burns twice the calories per hour compared to walking). Any way that we can burn extra calories is great!

    Female, 59, 5'3"
    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    June goal: 146.7
    Ultimate goal: 112-115

    I weigh every day.

    Monday June 01 - 151.7
    Tuesday June 02 - 150.7 - Yay!!! Finally hit the 40 pound loss, it has been a long haul. Even if it is temporary, I hit it. Very happy.
    Wednesday June 03 - 150.7 - Great to see this number again.
    Thursday June 04 - 150.6 - Any drop is a good drop for me, even if very small.
    Friday June 05 - 151.3 - Low on sleep, calories and exercise were on point. Hoping to see those 150 numbers again tomorrow.
    Saturday June 06 - 151.2 - Gave up a tiny bit yesterday, had nachos. Still well within my calorie range.
    Sunday June 07 - 152.0 - Up way too early, Hope to be below this number tomorrow.
    Monday June 08 - 151.7 - Okay, back to the beginning of the month again.
    Tuesday June 09 - 151.2 - Better.
    Wednesday June 10 - 149.9 - Very excited to touch a new decade. That will motivate me.
    Thursday June 11 - 150.1 - I am good with that number, touched those 140s once, so I can do it again. I delayed my cheat meal (rib eye steak with prawns), but I will be having it over the next few days or so. It would be great to get firmly into the 140s sometime this month.
    Friday June 12 - 153.4 - Had Ribs last night, Asian Sesame. They were delicious! They also must have been salty because I drank like 2 litres of water afterward I was so thirsty. I expected a gain, but not this much. I will work on getting it back down now. No regrets on having my fave food, I went from having them weekly to once per month or less. I won't be giving them up, life is too short. Just trying to moderate.
    Saturday June 13 - 153.2 - Expected to be less today, but it is slowly coming back down.
    Sunday June 14 - 152.9 - Good thing that there is a half of a month left!
    Monday June 15 - 150.9 - Okay, the Ribs seem to be finally gone, time to get back to that 149.9 as my next mini goal.
    Tuesday June 16 - 151.0 - 14 days left, I hope to lose at least 2 pounds, and of course I want to hit those 140s!!
    Wednesday June 17 - 150.2 - Inching closer to the 140s : - )
    Thursday June 18 - 150.2
    Friday June 19 - 150.3 - Huh? I have been super disciplined, I was hoping for a loss today. The gain is small though. I had scheduled a cheat meal for today (still haven't had that Rib Eye), I will have to rethink that, I gained 3.3 pounds the last one (7 days ago) and it took me awhile to get rid of it.
    Saturday June 20 - 150.6 - 10 days to try and drop another pound. I will work hard for it.
    Monday June 22 - 152.0 - Ouch
    Tuesday June 23 151.6 - frustrated
    Wednesday June 24 - 151.6 - Still haven't had my Rib Eye (cheat meal). I had a couple days where my output was almost as big as my input, yet no loss. I really don't get it. I won't give up. Chicken Breast and veggies yet again for dinner tonight. Something's got to give.
    Thursday June 25 - 150.7 - Hmm. Well, it was raining here yesterday, so I wasn't out busting my kitten in the hot sun. I peed like 40 times, maybe that 1 pound was water and just being hung on to by my body because of the heat? I changed nothing in my daily eating and exercise regime.
    Friday June 26 - 150.1 - Hope to keep this up until the end of the month. Hating on fluctuations, but that happens.
    Saturday June 27 - 150.0 - How great it would be to have lost 2 pounds this month. 3 days left to lose 0.3. Always trying!
    Saturday June 28 - 149.3 - Great to have touched this number. I slept in, so it might not be very accurate.

    Running total: 2.4lb loss so far

    I was hoping to finally meet my UGW this month and post progress pics. Oh well, BUT BUT BUT I have met my BF goal and I am soooooo close to the UGW!

    Here's to July!!!

    The cause of my weight gain in May 2020, lol: Renpho Bluetooth Scale on Amazon

    FYI: My body fat (BF) had been back and forth between 33% and 35% from Oct 2019 to March 2020. My goal is 30% and we will see what happens. I tend to carry my weight around my waist and hips.
    I have seen 31% twice in May - on my way!
    30% Finally!!!

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017
    June Starting Weight: 113.4 lbs
    June Goal: 110 lbs
    Height: 5ft
    Age: 31

    Ultimate Goal: 110 lbs
    Maintenance Goal: 108 to 113 lbs


    Weigh-In Days: Monday and Friday

    June 1: 112.4 @ 7am ... yesterday: 14k steps, 1210 cals, 3 cups of water, ~1737 mg sodium ... 31% BF :D
    June 5: 112.2 @ 7am ... yesterday: 14k steps, 1310 cals, 7 cups of water, ~2258 mg sodium
    June 8: 114.8 @ 6am ... yesterday: 3k steps, 1870 cals, 4 cups of water, ~3393 mg sodium ... 31% BF ... expected gain when you are annoyed by restriction, eat all the junk food you want and barely take a walk. Time to work it all off!
    June 12: 112.6 @ 6am ... yesterday: 14k steps, 1200 cals, 7 cups of water, ~1572 mg sodium
    June 15: 112 @ 6am ... yesterday: 9k steps, 1150 cals, 5 cups of water, ~1022 mg sodium ... 31% BF :D
    June 19: 110.6 @ 6am ... yesterday: 11k steps, 1220 cals, 4 cups of water, ~1667 mg sodium, 115g protein ... I'm about to enjoy a well deserved jr burger with small tots for dinner.
    June 22: 112.4 @ 6am ... yesterday: 11k steps, 1780 cals, 4 cups of water, 64g protein, 194g carbs, 80g fat ... 31% BF
    June 26: 110.4 @ 6am ... yesterday: 15k steps, 1130 cals, 6 cups of water, 98g protein, 120g carbs, 34g fat, 2201mg sodium ... I know I will gain tomorrow after I plan to have pizza and mozzarella sticks for dinner ... you can't always eat healthy and I will work it off this weekend.
    June 29: 111.2 @ 7am ... yesterday: 12k steps, 1190 cals, 5 cups of water, 44g protein, 188g carbs, 30g fat, 1813mg sodium ... 30% BF :) - I don't understand the gain from Sun (110.8) since I had 458 extra calories that I did not eat back. Tomorrow is another day.

    Total Loss for June: 2.2 lbs

    Overall Loss from Nov 2017 to June 2020: 36.2 lbs --- Over 35 lbs!! :)
