    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 : - )
    November 09 - 140.1 - Staying the course.
    November 10 - 139.1 - Happy to see this number
    November 11 - 140.2
    November 12 - 139.3
    November 13 - 138.5 - New low for me : - )
    November 14 - 139.7 - Ate more calories than usual yesterday.
    November 15 - 139.3 - I haven't been that "good" this weekend, so happy to see this number this morning.
    November 16 - 140.4 - Saturday's extra calories caught up with me : - (
    November 18 - 138.8 - 12 more days to the month left. I have been so up and down.
    November 20 - 138.8
    November 21 - 138.4
    November 24 - 140.2
    November 27 - 138.8
    December 04 - 137.1

    I'm back on the bandwagon. It's going down now (My weight, that is!). I haven't weighed myself yet but I'm all in now as of this morning: counting calories.

    Funnily enough, my motivation has been sparked from having now several people in town see me and comment about my weightloss. I'm not shy but I don't like attention drawn to just me, particularly in public. But the comments were surprisingly pleasant and humbling over the past couple weeks. Which is funny to me, because I lost 50# in 2019. BUT in 2020 I've fluctuated with an additional 17lbs up and down, but still kept off that initial 50lbs. I need to remember that that's significant. I was really down on myself for being so undisciplined this year. But I've lost 50lbs! That was a difficult thing to do and I don't want to gain it back.

    We buy dog food in 50lbs bags and it's so heavy. I can't really quite grasp that that weight was on my frame every day. It must have been so hard on my heart, lungs, and joints. I remember more difficult deep breathing, lying on my back, walking, steps, etc. Those areas are healthier now. I need to keep it that way.

    I still have a lot to go, and some of it will come off in December. Probably only 4-8lbs but it will be something.

    December 7th is my launchpad for a 2021 50lbs weightloss goal.

    With the Lord's help, I can do this!

    (week 13) December 31, 2020: (GOAL: 136 pounds)

    Three weeks to go, nine pounds to lose. Chances are slim but let's not give up now. To be frank, getting to 140 will be a major victory over my own weaknesses. But I am determined to try to get to that goal weight.

    I am going to continue beyond December 31 because we are doing "Biggest Loser" contest at work and it ends on January 27. Plus, I still have 20+ pounds to lose anyway... So whether reporting in here or not, my journey will continue...

    I am in another challenge that goes till 1/31/21. It is the 3 Month weight loss challenge. I also am in the Fat to Fit and it is a monthly challenge. I have a little over 30 lbs to go, to goal weight. Maybe a bit more. I will decide when I get closer. Good luck to you :):)

    I lost much less that I wished I had but at least I did lose something. Usually I gain weight in December so it is an achievement. Unfortunately, it is clear at this point I will not meet my challenge goal by the end of 2020. On the brighter side - I will finish the year much lighter that I was starting it! :)
