    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    June goal was 146.7 - Actual end weight 148.1
    July goal 143.4 (realistically I would be happy with 147.1 since I normally only lose one pound per month)
    Ultimate goal: 112-115 - Age 59, height 5'2"

    Wednesday July 01 - 148.4 - Up just a titch from June EW, but really pleased to be starting the month in the 140s for the first time.
    Thursday July 02 149.4 - Eh? Not sure why I would gain a pound in one day, not doing anything differently. Staying on track and hoping to see it lower tomorrow. I am never happy with fluctuations, you would think that I would be used to it by now! Very long work day, didn't get home to start making dinner until very late.
    Friday July 03 - 149.2 - I am off of work today, so can get more workouts in and eat well. Another .2 off tomorrow would be great.
    Saturday July 04 - 149.1 - Late dinner 2 nights in a row, I need to change that.
    Sunday July 05 - 149.1 - I expected a gain because I partied yesterday - it might catch up i a few days, but I hope not!
    Monday July 06 - 149.3
    Tuesday July 07 - 149.1 - Happy to be staying in the 140s so far this month even if I am still one pound up from my June EW. Being at the higher end of the 140s is precarious, so I hope to get down to an area where I have a bit of a cushion if I feel like eating like a normal person for a meal or a day.
    Wednesday July 08 - 149.4 - No reason for the gain, staying diligent.
    Thursday July 09 - 148.4 - Slept in weight.
    Friday July 10 - 148.7 - So far this month no forays back into the 150s. I hope to keep that up for the entire month. I am still up from June's EW and haven't touched that number yet this month. I will try to.
    Saturday July 11 - 148.8
    Sunday July 12 - 150.1 - 4am weigh in instead of 9am. Expecting (hoping) this is just due to weighing 5 hours early.
    Monday July 13 - 149.1 - 7am weigh in
    Tuesday July 14 - 148.7 - Okay. Now to get to June EW, or at least July start weight. Working on it.
    Wednesday July 15 - 148.4 - Back to my beginning of the month start weight. Next goal to get to June's EW.
    Thursday July 16 - 148.3 - How great it would be to lose 0.1 of a pound consistently for 10 days netting me another 1 pound loss. Staying diligent.
    Friday July 17 - 148.3 - Maybe I will get to see the 147s one of these days. This weekend will be a test because I have 2 bbqs and a lunch to attend (I don't normally eat lunch). Hoping that I don't gain too much, it is too hard to lose.
    Saturday July 18 - 148.1 - Surprised I didn't gain, but it could catch up to me. We'll see.
    Sunday July 19 - 148.5 - I loosened up a bit over the weekend. Time to tighten the reins.
    Monday July 20 - 149.8 - There it is, the weekend catching up with me. I will work very hard to bring this back down.
    Tuesday July 21 - 147.4 - New low, hope that I can stick somewhere around that number for awhile.
    Wednesday July 22- 147.0 - Wow, 0.4 loss in one day? Almost couldn't believe it, but am so happy. I am not doing anything differently, tracking, measuring portions, working out.
    Thursday July 23 - 146.1 - A woosh that has been in the making since January? Scale needing a battery change? Like I just don't normally lose much more than a pound per month. Hmm.
    Friday July 24 - 146.8 - I had Ribs and cocktails last night, my weight might go up higher still, but going to work at getting it off. Might have been worth it, my monthly Ribs feed.
    Saturday July 25 - 147.7 - Oh well. I have touched those 146s now and want to get back there. Nose to the grindstone.
    Monday July 27 - 147.7
    Tuesday July 28 - 147.3 - 3 more weigh days to hopefully hit those 146s again before the end of the month.
    Wednesday July 29 - 145.6 - Yipee! Newest low. I imagine that I won't stay at this weight, but if I hit it once I can get back there. I went back to bed for 2 hours early this morning, so got this nice low number when I got up.
    Thursday July 30 - 144.5 - Another going back to bed day until 9am. Really making up for the lack of a drop when I was ice skating so much and not losing any weight...I guess? I will be nice to go into the weekend with a bit of a buffer, bbqs, cocktails, and other high calorie stuff planned. Holding tight to finish out this month well. Lol, I will try to go back to bed tomorrow morning too.
    Friday July 31 - 145.0 - The long weekend has started here, going to try my best to not derail.

    3.4 pounds lost this month - so much better than my usual 1 pound loss. If I could keep up this pace I would be at my goal weight within a year.

    Good job this month of keeping accountable everyone.

    Monday August 03 - 147.7 - Ouch - Too easy to gain. I still had calories in the "green" but had a few cocktails over the weekend which always spells disaster. I will dust myself off and keep going.

    I lost 1 lb. this July! It's not quite 5 lbs. or more, but it's a step in the right direction, and I'm very hopeful to keep on stepping in the right direction with "Lose 5lbs./+ in August 2020" challenge (-:

    Me too @Cassandraw3
    I feel like the liver just holds on to things. Bloating, water, and fat retention suck.

    So happy to see the photos. It really gives perspective to all of your hard work.
    The Backstreet Boys t-shirt gave me a giggle.

    Your before photos are the weight that I am at now. I wish that I had done that, taken photos along the journey.

    Yes yes yes keep posting here, we would miss you too much if you didn't!

    In the spirit of seeing all of those photos, here I am at my current weight. I will be 60 in September, so weight loss has sure not been easy.

    Thank you so much!!! It's so surreal!

    I have loved the backstreet boys since I was a teen, lol. I'd never seen them in concert. So when they were coming to town, I had to get tickets and I was so ecstatic that my husband was happy to join me. 😆

    July goal 143.4 (realistically I would be happy with 147.1 since I normally only lose one pound per month)
    Ultimate goal: 112-115 - Age 59, height 5'2"

    Wednesday July 01 - 148.4 - Up just a titch from June EW, but really pleased to be starting the month in the 140s for the first time.
    Thursday July 02 149.4 - Eh? Not sure why I would gain a pound in one day, not doing anything differently. Staying on track and hoping to see it lower tomorrow. I am never happy with fluctuations, you would think that I would be used to it by now! Very long work day, didn't get home to start making dinner until very late.
    Friday July 03 - 149.2 - I am off of work today, so can get more workouts in and eat well. Another .2 off tomorrow would be great.
    Saturday July 04 - 149.1 - Late dinner 2 nights in a row, I need to change that.
    Sunday July 05 - 149.1 - I expected a gain because I partied yesterday - it might catch up i a few days, but I hope not!
    Monday July 06 - 149.3
    Tuesday July 07 - 149.1 - Happy to be staying in the 140s so far this month even if I am still one pound up from my June EW. Being at the higher end of the 140s is precarious, so I hope to get down to an area where I have a bit of a cushion if I feel like eating like a normal person for a meal or a day.
    Wednesday July 08 - 149.4 - No reason for the gain, staying diligent.
    Thursday July 09 - 148.4 - Slept in weight.
    Friday July 10 - 148.7 - So far this month no forays back into the 150s. I hope to keep that up for the entire month. I am still up from June's EW and haven't touched that number yet this month. I will try to.
    Saturday July 11 - 148.8
    Sunday July 12 - 150.1 - 4am weigh in instead of 9am. Expecting (hoping) this is just due to weighing 5 hours early.
    Monday July 13 - 149.1 - 7am weigh in
    Tuesday July 14 - 148.7 - Okay. Now to get to June EW, or at least July start weight. Working on it.
    Wednesday July 15 - 148.4 - Back to my beginning of the month start weight. Next goal to get to June's EW.
    Thursday July 16 - 148.3 - How great it would be to lose 0.1 of a pound consistently for 10 days netting me another 1 pound loss. Staying diligent.
    Friday July 17 - 148.3 - Maybe I will get to see the 147s one of these days. This weekend will be a test because I have 2 bbqs and a lunch to attend (I don't normally eat lunch). Hoping that I don't gain too much, it is too hard to lose.
    Saturday July 18 - 148.1 - Surprised I didn't gain, but it could catch up to me. We'll see.
    Sunday July 19 - 148.5 - I loosened up a bit over the weekend. Time to tighten the reins.
    Monday July 20 - 149.8 - There it is, the weekend catching up with me. I will work very hard to bring this back down.
    Tuesday July 21 - 147.4 - New low, hope that I can stick somewhere around that number for awhile.
    Wednesday July 22- 147.0 - Wow, 0.4 loss in one day? Almost couldn't believe it, but am so happy. I am not doing anything differently, tracking, measuring portions, working out.
    Thursday July 23 - 146.1 - A woosh that has been in the making since January? Scale needing a battery change? Like I just don't normally lose much more than a pound per month. Hmm.
    Friday July 24 - 146.8 - I had Ribs and cocktails last night, my weight might go up higher still, but going to work at getting it off. Might have been worth it, my monthly Ribs feed.
    Saturday July 25 - 147.7 - Oh well. I have touched those 146s now and want to get back there. Nose to the grindstone.
    Monday July 27 - 147.7
    Tuesday July 28 - 147.3 - 3 more weigh days to hopefully hit those 146s again before the end of the month.
    Wednesday July 29 - 145.6 - Yipee! Newest low. I imagine that I won't stay at this weight, but if I hit it once I can get back there. I went back to bed for 2 hours early this morning, so got this nice low number when I got up.
    Thursday July 30 - 144.5 - Another going back to bed day until 9am. Really making up for the lack of a drop when I was ice skating so much and not losing any weight...I guess? I will be nice to go into the weekend with a bit of a buffer, bbqs, cocktails, and other high calorie stuff planned. Holding tight to finish out this month well. Lol, I will try to go back to bed tomorrow morning too.
    Friday July 31 - 145.0 - The long weekend has started here, going to try my best to not derail.

    3.4 pounds lost this month - so much better than my usual 1 pound loss. If I could keep up this pace I would be at my goal weight within a year.

    Good job this month of keeping accountable everyone.

    Monday August 03 - 147.7 - Ouch - Too easy to gain. I still had calories in the "green" but had a few cocktails over the weekend which always spells disaster. I will dust myself off and keep going.
    Tuesday August 04 - 146.4 - Also parking here until the August thread.
    Wednesday August 05 - 145.8 - Need to get back to July's end weight.
