    Original starting weight - 189
    July starting weight - 183
    July goal - down 6 lbs to 177
    Ultimate goal - 145/150

    1st - 183 lbs
    7th- 181 lbs (pretty sure this is because I have been bad and not drank any water yet today! but I am surprised at this loss!)
    14th-- 177.6 (I weigh in in the morning after I workout)
    21st- 178.3 lbs (humph...)
    28th

    Can’t say I didn’t expect this, but it’s less than a pound so hopefully this week I can be consistent and healthy. I plan to walk more and drink no alcohol (has my first in person visit with a friend since March so we were a bit excited). One week left everyone, we’re awesome people let’s make these last seven days ours!

    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.

    Holy Moly so carb cycling not working for me! Maybe I am just not going to the extremes. I did much better a few years back by following the F-Factor (high fiber/lower net-carbs) I hate to quit something in the middle but my frustration is high and I have been feeling a bit sluggish so I think a change will be good.

    July starting weight - 130.4
    July goal - 125.4
    Ultimate goal - 116

    1st - 130.4
    7th - 126.4
    14th - 125.8 Period bloat has me feeling like a balloon and of course it lined up with with this week's weigh in.
    21st - 127.1 It started with a single day of over-eating and then went downhill from there. I can only hope I get my emotions under control to reach my goal but the 28th.

  • syreinasyreina Member Posts: 406 Member Member Posts: 406 Member
    @dawnbgethealthy That's awesome! The spreadsheet I have uses the Navy calculator but I've also been thinking about buying calipers - I'm scared to see a higher BF. Most of my fat is around my waist so my next goal (once I reach 110) is lowering to 28% but trying to keep my weight the same.

    Also, maybe your doctor can help measure at your next visit?
  • syreinasyreina Member Posts: 406 Member Member Posts: 406 Member
    #baecation is over and I've got to stop jumping around 110 but not quite reaching it. :|

    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!!!

    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 22 - 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 23 - 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.
