    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    June 30 starting weight - 148.0 (ten-day rolling average weight 148.8)
    August goal - 145
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight), and I post on Saturdays.


    July 31: 146.2 (10-day average 145.3)
    August 8: 145.8 (10-day average 144.8)
    August 15: 144.6 (10-day average 145.3)

    Total loss for August: According to my average, not an ounce. If I paid more attention to single-day weights, my mass today is 1.6 pounds less than the end of July.

    I continue to slowly get back to my ultimate goal weight after the COVID weight gain in March and April. I'm staying in my maintenance range. Today I weigh less than one month ago, less than two months ago, and less than three months ago. My ten-day average weight is about three quarters of a pound more than a year ago when I was maintaining near the bottom of my range.

    Notes:
    Aug 15: I spent a long weekend taking mini-roadtrips to see friends, which also meant I ate and drank indulgently over 3 days. Still kept active and physical in order to balance it all out. I did come back from the long weekend, though, constantly craving takeout and restaurant food. I bargained with myself that I would be disciplined this week so that I can relax and enjoy myself during my week long vacation next week. Wondering if anyone here still tries to follow some of your diet while on vacation? Or, do you allow yourself to be completely free, ex. no logging meals/calories in MFP while on vacation?

    Aug 8: I think the scale is off by 2lbs, so I believe I'm likely in the 154-155 range. The past week I've been feeling decent energy and less feelings of boredom/anxiety hunger. Still trying to level out how much to eat back calories when I'm exercising more; I think I am undereating on those days. Tbh my new challenge in this weight loss journey is dealing with the loose skin, and how I feel about it changes day to day.

    Aug 1: My final weigh-in yesterday for the July 2020 Weight Loss Challenge was 155 (the day before that was 158.5)... so yeah, my scale is kinda busted. I should probably get a more accurate scale, but maybe I can live with the consistently inconsistent scale.

    Just came back from vacation and tracked my calories in MFP everyday. Mentally, I struggled with knowing that I was overeating but MFP kept me conscious of what I was eating even though I ate whatever I wanted. It will have an impact on your scale—which I found I could not handle. (I should’ve brought the scale with me then I wouldn’t have been freaking out!). I guess the question is, can you handle the scale going up a few pounds?
