    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.
    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.
    Thursday August 06 - 145.8 - I was glad not to have gained, I had a few cocktails and a homemade Naan pizza yesterday. I had a double workout though in the morning (Zumba to loosen up and then HIIT with weights) so that likely saved me.
    Friday August 07 - 147.1 - Hoping this is only a temporary jump.
    Saturday August 08 - 145.8 - Levelling out. Still not back to July's EW, but working on it ... and beyond. Touched 144.5 in July, that is my next goal.
    Sunday August 09 - 146.4 - Had cocktails with a friend yesterday, a recipe for weight gain indeed.
    Monday August 10 - 146.8 - Weighed twice, but yup, I am up in weight. Very early weigh-in however.
    Tuesday August 11 - 146.4 - Staying on track, still 2 pounds up from July 30th so of course not happy with that. Maybe one of these days. I am working on it.
    Wednesday August 12 - 145.6 - Okay, getting closer to my July EW. Working hard at weight loss and trying to be patient with the process.
    Thursday August 13 - 145.1 - Better. Good thing that there is lots of the month left.
    Friday August 14 - 144.9 - Yay, finally below July's end weight, even if only slightly. I will be changing my daily eating habits starting today, when my first tomatoes are becoming ripe. Tomato sandwiches will be on the menu each day for a month or so, I will adjust elsewhere.
    Saturday August 15 - 145.9 - Ouch!
    Sunday August 16 - 145.2 - Going to stay determined
    Monday August 17 - 144.4 - Slept in, so got a great number
    Tuesday August 18 - 143.2 - New low, very excited. I so wanted to be into the 130s by my 60th birthday in a month from now. I have hope.
    Wednesday August 19 - 143.2 - Very happy to see this weight again. It is very hot here right now, maybe that is helping.
    Thursday August 20 - 144.5 - Well...at least still under (slightly) my July EW
    Friday August 21 - 145.2 - Very unhappy to see a 2 pound gain in 2 days : - (
    Saturday August 22 - 144.2 - Bouncing around, not sure why.
    Sunday August 23 - 143.9 - More favourable.
    Monday August 24 - 144.9 - Argh, really want to pull out a loss this round. Counting from July 31st weight that is(145.0), since I had such a rough start at the beginning of this month.
    Tuesday August 25 - 145.2 - I am working hard at this, trying to be patient. Sitting above July EW right now : - (

    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.
    Thursday August 06 - 145.8 - I was glad not to have gained, I had a few cocktails and a homemade Naan pizza yesterday. I had a double workout though in the morning (Zumba to loosen up and then HIIT with weights) so that likely saved me.
    Friday August 07 - 147.1 - Hoping this is only a temporary jump.
    Saturday August 08 - 145.8 - Levelling out. Still not back to July's EW, but working on it ... and beyond. Touched 144.5 in July, that is my next goal.
    Sunday August 09 - 146.4 - Had cocktails with a friend yesterday, a recipe for weight gain indeed.
    Monday August 10 - 146.8 - Weighed twice, but yup, I am up in weight. Very early weigh-in however.
    Tuesday August 11 - 146.4 - Staying on track, still 2 pounds up from July 30th so of course not happy with that. Maybe one of these days. I am working on it.
    Wednesday August 12 - 145.6 - Okay, getting closer to my July EW. Working hard at weight loss and trying to be patient with the process.
    Thursday August 13 - 145.1 - Better. Good thing that there is lots of the month left.
    Friday August 14 - 144.9 - Yay, finally below July's end weight, even if only slightly. I will be changing my daily eating habits starting today, when my first tomatoes are becoming ripe. Tomato sandwiches will be on the menu each day for a month or so, I will adjust elsewhere.
    Saturday August 15 - 145.9 - Ouch!
    Sunday August 16 - 145.2 - Going to stay determined
    Monday August 17 - 144.4 - Slept in, so got a great number
    Tuesday August 18 - 143.2 - New low, very excited. I so wanted to be into the 130s by my 60th birthday in a month from now. I have hope.
    Wednesday August 19 - 143.2 - Very happy to see this weight again. It is very hot here right now, maybe that is helping.
    Thursday August 20 - 144.5 - Well...at least still under (slightly) my July EW
    Friday August 21 - 145.2 - Very unhappy to see a 2 pound gain in 2 days : - (
    Saturday August 22 - 144.2 - Bouncing around, not sure why.
    Sunday August 23 - 143.9 - More favourable.
    Monday August 24 - 144.9 - Argh, really want to pull out a loss this round. Counting from July 31st weight that is(145.0), since I had such a rough start at the beginning of this month.
    Tuesday August 25 - 145.2 - I am working hard at this, trying to be patient. Sitting above July EW right now : - (
    Wednesday August 26 - 144.6 - better, now to get back to those 143 numbers and lower. It takes work!
    Thursday August 27 - 144.2 - only 3 days left of the month!

    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.

    After 2 years and 8 months of hard work, I met my ultimate weight loss goal on 7/31/2020.

    Overall Loss from Nov 2017 to July 2020: 38.2 lbs

    What's next? Maintenance, muscle gain and toning my stomach.

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017
    August Starting Weight: 109.2 lbs
    August Maintenance Goal: 110 lbs
    New BF Goal: 26%
    Height: 5 ft
    Age: 31

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

    Weigh-In Days: Monday and Friday

    August 3: 109.6 ... 29% BF
    August 7: 110.6 ... yesterday: 11k steps, 1651 cals in, 1701 cals burned, 106g protein, 192g carbs, 53g fat ... 1k calorie dinner 😬

    I've been eating at maintenance a little too well. MFP set maintenance (with no exercise) at 1400 cals which might be low but in either case, my calorie avg this week is 1638. I'll work on finding a good medium.
    I'm already noticing that I am eating one too many bad snacks after dinner. I need to tone it down. I'm very happy that I'm hitting personal protein goals of 100g or more.

    August 10: 110.4 ... It's all a work in progress... 29% BF
    August 14: 110.6 ... a bit confused by a loss... yesterday: 111.8 lbs, 5k steps, 1718 cals in, 1514 cals burned, 128g protein, 211g carbs, 50g fat

    August 17: 112.6 ... 30% BF ... not a bad BF but ouch. I allowed myself to eat chips and queso on Saturday but I've got to be careful.
    August 21: 112.4

    August 24: 114.8 ... 30% BF ... Yes, I went overboard last week with weekly cal avg of 1800 cals and not much exercise. I'm going to bring down my calorie avg this week! All of my hard work will not be in vain.
    August 28: 112 ... much better! Calorie avg from Mon to Thurs is 1530 and we have taken three 1 hour walks so far.

    Wednesday August 19 - 143.2 - Very happy to see this weight again. It is very hot here right now, maybe that is helping.
    Thursday August 20 - 144.5 - Well...at least still under (slightly) my July EW
    Friday August 21 - 145.2 - Very unhappy to see a 2 pound gain in 2 days : - (
    Saturday August 22 - 144.2 - Bouncing around, not sure why.
    Sunday August 23 - 143.9 - More favourable.
    Monday August 24 - 144.9 - Argh, really want to pull out a loss this round. Counting from July 31st weight that is(145.0), since I had such a rough start at the beginning of this month.
    Tuesday August 25 - 145.2 - I am working hard at this, trying to be patient. Sitting above July EW right now : - (
    Wednesday August 26 - 144.6 - better, now to get back to those 143 numbers and lower. It takes work!
    Thursday August 27 - 144.2 - only 3 days left of the month!
    Friday August 28 - 145.1 - Argh
    Saturday August 29 - 144.1 - Wow, this month is almost over! Glad to be below July's EW. At best I hope to be down 1 pound this month from last month, one more weigh day. It looked so promising when I hit the 143s for a couple of days in a row mid month - so easy to gain, so hard to lose. Gain 2 pounds in one day and it can take 2 months to lose 2 pounds. Got to keep trucking.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Thursday August 06 - 145.8 - I was glad not to have gained, I had a few cocktails and a homemade Naan pizza yesterday. I had a double workout though in the morning (Zumba to loosen up and then HIIT with weights) so that likely saved me.
    Friday August 07 - 147.1 - Hoping this is only a temporary jump.
    Saturday August 08 - 145.8 - Levelling out. Still not back to July's EW, but working on it ... and beyond. Touched 144.5 in July, that is my next goal.
    Sunday August 09 - 146.4 - Had cocktails with a friend yesterday, a recipe for weight gain indeed.
    Monday August 10 - 146.8 - Weighed twice, but yup, I am up in weight. Very early weigh-in however.
    Tuesday August 11 - 146.4 - Staying on track, still 2 pounds up from July 30th so of course not happy with that. Maybe one of these days. I am working on it.
    Wednesday August 12 - 145.6 - Okay, getting closer to my July EW. Working hard at weight loss and trying to be patient with the process.
    Thursday August 13 - 145.1 - Better. Good thing that there is lots of the month left.
    Friday August 14 - 144.9 - Yay, finally below July's end weight, even if only slightly. I will be changing my daily eating habits starting today, when my first tomatoes are becoming ripe. Tomato sandwiches will be on the menu each day for a month or so, I will adjust elsewhere.
    Saturday August 15 - 145.9 - Ouch!
    Sunday August 16 - 145.2 - Going to stay determined
    Monday August 17 - 144.4 - Slept in, so got a great number
    Tuesday August 18 - 143.2 - New low, very excited. I so wanted to be into the 130s by my 60th birthday in a month from now. I have hope.
    Wednesday August 19 - 143.2 - Very happy to see this weight again. It is very hot here right now, maybe that is helping.

    Sunday August 30 - DNW
    Monday August 31 - 145.2

    Kind of a bust of a month, gained 0.2 from last month.

    It would be great if we had a new month to post in for September. If not we can still keep posting here on the July thread.

    As of today, I'm up one pound from last week. We had Chinese food on Saturday night and ribs last night. It ain't easy being good. :blush:
    I have my food and exercise mapped out for the week so I'm good to go. Did a lot of meal prep Saturday and Sunday so I'm setting myself up to succeed. Now to execute. Work the plan, the plan works!

    It was a good month! I don't think I will stay on keto for a long time. It is too restrictive. I just hope I can maintain the loss I had with keto once I have carbs again.
