    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.

    I got nothin'. I am just not tracking. Can't get on board with it. Don't wanna do it. I guess I don't want it bad enough. It's so bad how I don't want to track that I'm trying reverse psychology on my own self! I'm not tracking my "regular" food...you know...the fuel food. I've taken to just tracking the bad stuff I eat. I thought I would show myself how many calories all of that adds up to in addition to my fuel food. We'll see how this goes.

    So...the #baecation this week with my husband is definitely a vacation. We have ate well and barely worked out but hey everyone deserves a break here and there.

    I'm happy the gain hasn't been extreme.

    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!!!

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017
    July Starting Weight: 111.2 lbs
    July Goal: 110 lbs
    Height: 5ft
    Age: 31
    BF: 30% ☑️

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


    Weigh-In Days: Monday and Friday

    July 3: 110.6
    July 6: 112.6 ... 31% BF
    July 10: 110.2
    July 13: 110.8 ... yesterday: 1250 calories, 71g protein, 169g carbs, 42g fat, 1548mg sodium... 30% BF
    July 17: 112.4

    @rmwb529
    Just do it. Just track every mouthful, or pre-track what you are planning to eat.
  • dawnbgethealthydawnbgethealthy Member Posts: 2,652 Member Member Posts: 2,652 Member
    @syreina
    I was inspired by you and ordered a caliper to measure body fat. (Like they use in some gyms)
    The other method (measurements) doesn't really work for me because my fat has re-distributed with age. It is impossible that I have more body fat now than I did when I was 40 pounds heavier.

    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.
