    January 2021 stats
    38 years old
    Height: 5' 7"
    SW (6/9/2020): 330.0 lbs
    Month SW (1/1/21): lbs
    Goal weight: 180 lbs
    Weigh-in day: Saturdays
    1/1/2021: 253.8lbs - 1st weigh-in of the year
    1/2: 254.8lbs
    1/9: 250.4lbs
    1/16: 249.6lbs - Finally below 250lbs for the first time in over 3 years (I was actually 248.8lbs 2 days ago).
    1/23: lbs
    1/30: lbs

    Weekly and Monthly Goals:
    * Keep logging in MFP
    * Disabled exercise calories sync in MFP and I am sticking to my 1200 calorie limit. ✔✔
    * Stop drinking water ~15 minutes before meals and no drinking water during meals -> this is going slowly, but have done it most of my meals this week (have to constantly remind myself) ✔
    * Continue the T-25 workouts (Beta cycle week one completed yesterday) ✔✔
    * Do either a quick yoga, stretch, or walk (Reps to the Rhythm or Up to the BEat Fit or Cize - Crazy 8's) workout in the evenings in addition to my morning workout ✔✔
    * Get as much sleep as possible
    * Classes began again on Monday, so my main goal is to keep hitting my step goal daily regardless of what may be going on. I am currently at day 33 of meeting my step goal - trying to make it to 60 days and get a new badge from Garmin!!

    Mid-year Goal:
    * Get below 200 lbs (Hopefully by the end of May)

    Way to go on breaking the 250 goal! That is awesome you are meeting your step goals. Well done!!!

    Good morning.

    12.27.20: 257.2
    1.7.21: 253.4
    1.17.21: 251.4

    I have been very diligent about logging everything that I eat. The first 4 pounds lost, I was within 15% of my 1500cal, 4 days of seven. The next week I was within 15% only 2 days. This seems to be my mentality with calories... that worked, so go lower to lose more. I usually leave several hundred cal on the table daily. Is this slowing my progress or just what is to be expected?

    Thank you for any thoughts.

    @uyister what's the thinking behind not drinking water with your meals? I've never heard that one! I would have thought it was a good thing to drink water with food??

    @goal06082021 I have that problem with getting an accurate reading on the scale as I live in an old house c. 1870 with zero decent foundations! I put my scale in 10+ locations in what I think are the most level areas and take the measurement, I go with the most frequent number, and if it's a dead heat (read: I lose my patience with the inconsistency!) then I use the higher number. It only occured to me today that my phone is effectively a spirit level as it has a gyroscope built in! There's definitely an app for that...
