    CHALLENGE TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS GOAL: Total Loss of 15 pounds to land at 192.0
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT (FROM February 28, 2021): 207.0
    CHALLENGE ENDING WEIGHT:

    Challenge Weight loss goal: I am aiming for a 5 pound per month.




    March 01: 206.6 Off to a good start! It’s not spring here (time without snow) until May where I am at in Northern Michigan. So no walking or outside activity until May as I am a fall risk. I’ll do my best to keep moving inside as best I can. Good luck everyone!
    March 08: 208.2 Wrong direction. Pizza last night during a family meeting showing up.
    March 15: 207.2 Daughter and 3 yr old grandson moved in. I’m not sure for how long. Family troubles. And I thought planning the diet was tough with remodeling team here every day! Wow, this will be challenging!
    March 22: 207.4 Up & Down & topsy turvy all week. Focus…Focus…Focus…
    March 29: 207.0 Better than last week and right back at the challenge starting weight. Now, to focus on actual progress and not yo-yo’s.
    March 31: 208.2 A bit of an unfair way to end the month. It’s up today due to no TMI but it is what it is.


    March Goal: 202.0
    March Actual: 208.2
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 1.2 lb Gain



    April 01: 207.6 This makes me feel much better!
    April 05 206.6 Much better. I am suspecting that I am becoming lactose intolerant. My stomach really gets hard and bloats up after milk, cheese etc. I am weaning off for a test. Happy for this drop on the scale.
    April 12: 207.4 An overnight setback. I made good choices yesterday and got in plenty of steps and exercise through some tough yardwork but my calories and carbs were over due to eating 3 meals instead of my normal 2. Hopefully this will adjust and I will get my 206 back soon!
    April 19: 206.0 An overnight drop helped. Travel today with dinner out so the rest of the week will be filled with movement to offset!
    April 26: 204.0 A ton of yard work after multiple trees were cut down has really burned the calories. Starving today but will try to keep the meals light.
    April 30: 206.2 This is a more realistic true weight for me. Two pounds down in April. I’ll take it!


    April Goal: 203.2
    April Actual: 206.2
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 0.8 lbs Lost



    May 01: 206.6 Late night hunger leads to early morning scale shock! Better days are ahead!
    May 03: 207.4 A horrible glucose difficult week. Tweak slowly, tweak slowly. Tread lightly. I am going to try to sneak up on this weight without tipping the glucose scale. Wish me luck!
    May 10: 208.8 My 61st birthday. I know things can slow down with age including weight loss, but weight gain is inexcusable! My gift to me today will be to stay on course, one day at a time! My birthday celebrating will be next Sunday so I should be able to stay on course today.
    May 17: 206.8 Not too bad after multiple celebrations this past week. I am almost back to starting weight. I don’t see myself losing the 5 pounds I had hoped for but any loss would be a plus. Working toward that at the very least.
    May 24: 210.8 OMG 4 pound gain in one week! My daughter and DGS moved back in with me. It changes a lot of things. I’ve got to separate myself at meal times and do my own thing but it won’t be easy!
    May 31: xxxxx


    May Goal: 201.2
    May Actual: xxxxx
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far:
  • RetiredAndLovingItRetiredAndLovingIt Member Posts: 958 Member Member Posts: 958 Member
    Hi, can I join this challenge? I weigh everyday & average them on Monday, so my numbers are the weekly average.
    Thanks for letting me join, I am hoping the accountability will help.

    STARTING WEIGHT/DATE WITH MFP: about 175 on 8/19/12 (been here a long time, lol, but kinda off & on)
    Lost about 25 pounds, then pretty much maintaining, up a little, down a little, but would like to lose another 15 or so.

    Challenge starting weight: 148.8

    3-1: 148.8
    3-8: 148.54
    3-15: 148.51
    3-22: 146.77 think this was artificially low because doing low fiber for colonoscopy prep
    3-29: 146.1 still low because of colonoscopy prep & only 3 days of weighing

    4-5: 149.2 probably more likely actual weight, been gone for a week & not logging eating and only 3 days of weighing when returned
    4-12: 148.57
    4-19: 147.66
    4-26: 147.4
    5-3: 148.09 too many days over calorie goal..fully vaxxed, so seeing friends for first time in over a year
    5-10: 147.26
    5-17: 150 spent the last week with daughter & we ate out too much, hopefully some is water weight because I never remember to drink enough when there
    5-24: 148.8

    Weight lost this week: 1.2##
    Current challenge loss: 0#

    Challenge weight loss goal: 10#

    I missed a couple of updates! I didn't quite meet my goal, but I came within spitting distance of it. Hubs and I went out of town 5/13-5/19 and I did successfully maintain during that time - were it not for that I probably would have met the -15lb goal.

    Is anyone making a Summer Weight Loss Challenge thread for June, July, and August? If so, see y'all there!

Thank you for your motivation, support, and inspiration!! Here is to more success for us all in the coming months!

    In the next challenge I am going to set a more realist goal of 2lbs per month.

    CHALLENGE ENDING WEIGHT:

    Challenge Weight loss goal: I am aiming for a 5 pound per month.




    March 01: 206.6 Off to a good start! It’s not spring here (time without snow) until May where I am at in Northern Michigan. So no walking or outside activity until May as I am a fall risk. I’ll do my best to keep moving inside as best I can. Good luck everyone!
    March 08: 208.2 Wrong direction. Pizza last night during a family meeting showing up.
    March 15: 207.2 Daughter and 3 yr old grandson moved in. I’m not sure for how long. Family troubles. And I thought planning the diet was tough with remodeling team here every day! Wow, this will be challenging!
    March 22: 207.4 Up & Down & topsy turvy all week. Focus…Focus…Focus…
    March 29: 207.0 Better than last week and right back at the challenge starting weight. Now, to focus on actual progress and not yo-yo’s.
    March 31: 208.2 A bit of an unfair way to end the month. It’s up today due to no TMI but it is what it is.


    March Goal: 202.0
    March Actual: 208.2
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 1.2 lb Gain



    April 01: 207.6 This makes me feel much better!
    April 05 206.6 Much better. I am suspecting that I am becoming lactose intolerant. My stomach really gets hard and bloats up after milk, cheese etc. I am weaning off for a test. Happy for this drop on the scale.
    April 12: 207.4 An overnight setback. I made good choices yesterday and got in plenty of steps and exercise through some tough yardwork but my calories and carbs were over due to eating 3 meals instead of my normal 2. Hopefully this will adjust and I will get my 206 back soon!
    April 19: 206.0 An overnight drop helped. Travel today with dinner out so the rest of the week will be filled with movement to offset!
    April 26: 204.0 A ton of yard work after multiple trees were cut down has really burned the calories. Starving today but will try to keep the meals light.
    April 30: 206.2 This is a more realistic true weight for me. Two pounds down in April. I’ll take it!


    April Goal: 203.2
    April Actual: 206.2
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 0.8 lbs Lost



    May 01: 206.6 Late night hunger leads to early morning scale shock! Better days are ahead!
    May 03: 207.4 A horrible glucose difficult week. Tweak slowly, tweak slowly. Tread lightly. I am going to try to sneak up on this weight without tipping the glucose scale. Wish me luck!
    May 10: 208.8 My 61st birthday. I know things can slow down with age including weight loss, but weight gain is inexcusable! My gift to me today will be to stay on course, one day at a time! My birthday celebrating will be next Sunday so I should be able to stay on course today.
    May 17: 206.8 Not too bad after multiple celebrations this past week. I am almost back to starting weight. I don’t see myself losing the 5 pounds I had hoped for but any loss would be a plus. Working toward that at the very least.
    May 24: 210.8 OMG 4 pound gain in one week! My daughter and DGS moved back in with me. It changes a lot of things. I’ve got to separate myself at meal times and do my own thing but it won’t be easy!
    May 31: 206.4 I’m sure glad I was able to reel it in from last week or the whole 3 month period would have been shot! Only down 0.2 in three whole months. Disappointed but at least no gain! Aiming for better next round.
