    Track every day! Pre-tracking also works.

    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.

    I will meet my UGW this month and I'm on #baecation this week with my husband so we have time to walk and workout together. No plans to go anywhere but to the trail during this pandemic.

    Keep up the good work everyone! :)

    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% in June, finally!!!
