    Hi : - )
    I am Dawn, 60, 5'2"
    MFP Start weight October 28.18 191 pounds
    UGW - 112-118


    10/1 -
    10/2 - 143.5
    10/3 - 143.5
    10/4 - 143.5 - I normally fluctuate like crazy, so this staying at the same weight for 3 days is new to me.
    10/5 - 143.1 - Good to see a slight drop. I was 141.0 in September, so trying to get back to that...and beyond.
    10/6 - 142.1 - Getting back down to September's weight, working on it!
    10/7 - 141.5 - I don't really want to count this first week as a weight loss, since I am still up (slightly) from September. Gaining weight and then losing that same weight is not weight loss to me. Onward : - )
    10/8 - 139.6 - New low for me, yay!
    10/9 - 141.3 - I am fine with this number. I hope to touch the 130s again this month : - )
    10/10 - 142.3 - I had hoped for a lower number as I go into 3 days of a feeding frenzy of Canadian Thanksgiving. I am particularly fond of gravy and stuffing. I will still be working out.
    10/11 - 142.6 - No big gain yet from seasonal foods
    10/12 - 143.0 - One more thanksgiving meal tonight
    10/13
    10/14
    10/15 - 143.6 - Time to get serious and bring this number down.
    10/16 - 142.1 - I actually went back to bed this morning and weighed 141.2 when I woke up, but I will stay with the former number because it was at a time when I normally get up.
    10/17 - 143.6 - Bad food choices yesterday
    10/18
    10/19
    10/20 - 142.9 - I really want to be 141 on my MFP anniversary Oct 28
    10/21
    10/22
    10/23 - 141.2 - Okay, 5 days to lose 0.2 pounds and return to my September weight. Easier said than done sometimes.
    10/24 - 140.6 - That is more like it!
    10/25 - 141.2 - Okay.
    10/26 - 141.2 - Wanting (and will try) to shed that .2 before Wednesday.
    10/27 - 140.6 - This is after going back to bed, so I'll see a real number tomorrow.
    10/28 - 139.6 - My 2 year anniversary of joining MFP at 191 pounds
    10/29 - 140.2 - wrong way to celebrate my 2 years of weight loss lol, rewarded myself with naughty food.
    10/30 - 140.5 -
    10/31 - 140.1

    Nov 01 - 141.9 - I have to get on top of that!
    Nov 05 - 140.7 - I thought that I was posting every day on here, maybe I just wasn't pressing "post reply"
    November 06 - 139.5 - Yay!
    November 07 - 140.8 - I have tasted those 130s a few times now. I will work hard to get back there.
    November 08 - 140.8 - Feeling leaner this morning. I get lots more calorie burning activity on the weekends, so waiting for a small drop in weight : - )

    Wow. This is painstakingly slow... But I'll take the small loss rather than gaining weight. I'm revising my October goal from 141 to 146. Garage workout space is finally done and is a pretty good solution. Except I feel guilty when I see how much junk we have in there! It's a good metaphor for the weight I need to dump. Onward!!

    Start Date: October 1, 2020: 150
    Goal Weight: December 31, 2020: 135
    Weigh ins: Wednesdays

    Oct 1: 150
    Oct 7: 149.5
    Oct14: 148.5 Yay! a little movement!
    Oct 21: 148 (-.5)
    Oct 28: Goal: 146 Actual: 148

    Hi : - )
    I am Dawn, 60, 5'2"
    MFP Start weight October 28.18 191 pounds
    UGW - 112-118


    10/1 -
    10/2 - 143.5
    10/3 - 143.5
    10/4 - 143.5 - I normally fluctuate like crazy, so this staying at the same weight for 3 days is new to me.
    10/5 - 143.1 - Good to see a slight drop. I was 141.0 in September, so trying to get back to that...and beyond.
    10/6 - 142.1 - Getting back down to September's weight, working on it!
    10/7 - 141.5 - I don't really want to count this first week as a weight loss, since I am still up (slightly) from September. Gaining weight and then losing that same weight is not weight loss to me. Onward : - )
    10/8 - 139.6 - New low for me, yay!
    10/9 - 141.3 - I am fine with this number. I hope to touch the 130s again this month : - )
    10/10 - 142.3 - I had hoped for a lower number as I go into 3 days of a feeding frenzy of Canadian Thanksgiving. I am particularly fond of gravy and stuffing. I will still be working out.
    10/11 - 142.6 - No big gain yet from seasonal foods
    10/12 - 143.0 - One more thanksgiving meal tonight
    10/13
    10/14
    10/15 - 143.6 - Time to get serious and bring this number down.
    10/16 - 142.1 - I actually went back to bed this morning and weighed 141.2 when I woke up, but I will stay with the former number because it was at a time when I normally get up.
    10/17 - 143.6 - Bad food choices yesterday
    10/18
    10/19
    10/20 - 142.9 - I really want to be 141 on my MFP anniversary Oct 28
    10/21
    10/22
    10/23 - 141.2 - Okay, 5 days to lose 0.2 pounds and return to my September weight. Easier said than done sometimes.
    10/24 - 140.6 - That is more like it!
    10/25 - 141.2 - Okay.
    10/26 - 141.2 - Wanting (and will try) to shed that .2 before Wednesday.
    10/27 - 140.6 - This is after going back to bed, so I'll see a real number tomorrow.
    10/28 - 139.6 - My 2 year anniversary of joining MFP at 191 pounds

    Thought you all might like this. I'm feeling a little snacky today, and it is not quite time for dinner. :p

    Great chart @Bluetail6
    Thank you!
    Tryptophan is mentioned a couple of times, surprised it didn't list Turkey as a suggestion. That Tryptophan is what makes us sleepy from eating Turkey : - )
