    My name is Donna and I am from the Great Midwest in the USA
    Age: Almost 61. Height 5 feet 5.5 inches when I stand up very straight (I’ve shrunk!)
    I like to weigh in on the 1st and the very last day of each month, but otherwise follow the leader.

    Original starting weight - 253
    March Ending Weight – 208.2
    April goal – 203.2
    Ultimate goal – 145-155 (We’ll see when I get there)

    1st – 207.6 I am THRILLED that this challenge is back. It is one of my favorites! Thank you @tiabirdie56 for letting me know. Good luck everyone!
    8th- 208.2 Frustrating as my eating has mainly been on target and my movement has increased. Banging head on the wall here.
    15th – 207.6 This finds me a bit lower than last week. I know my diet must improve. My exercise or movement has remained good.
    22nd - 207.2 Covid shot #2 today so I’m feeling a bit tired. I experienced some extra travel this week so I’m grateful that the scale is still below last week. I know I can try harder and do better. I have lots of tools in my toolbox, I just need to sharpen the blades and get to work!
    29th – xxxxx
    30th - xxxxx
    Total loss for April –
    Final Challenge thoughts: Okay, so my birthday is May 10th. I want to give myself a present of a consistent trend of healthy weight loss!

    I did reach my previous UGW of 110 lbs in August 2020 but gained weight every month since and I felt 110 lbs was too low.

    I've found my new UGW (maintenance) aim of 115 to 120 lbs. I'm using Fitbod app in hopes of slowly gaining muscle as I reach for my new maintenance goal.


    Original starting weight - 147.4 lbs - Nov 2017
    April starting weight - 128.4
    April goal - 125.4

    Ultimate goal - 115 to 120
    Height - 5 ft
    Age Range: 30s

    1st - 128.8
    8th - 130.6 ... Workout 4 completed
    15th - 128.6 ... attempting to count again... Calories In 1605 Calories Out 1726 ... 8,592 steps
    22nd - 127.4 ... Calories In 1472 Calories Out 1832 ... 10,259 steps ... Workout 10 completed

    •Lose 5 lbs in April 2021•

    Original (2016) starting wgt: 253
    April starting weight: 214.3
    April goal: Increase exercise to create a loss in weight


    •Monday Updates•📍

    4/01- 214.3
    4/02 - 214.3- just posting this weight again didn't have time to weigh. An early morning call had me helping out a family member.
    4/03 - 214.3- Again, just posting this weight again didn't have time to weigh. A family funeral today.

    4/04 - 215
    📍4/05 - 214.3

    4/09 - 215.5 - always a battle for me trying to regulate my body fluid.

    📍 4/12 - DNW - Just forgot to do it before drinking and eating.

    4/22- 216! - Too many carbs, not enough water. Beginning today, keep carbs at 50g & under and drink more water. Hope to see a change for the better by the end of April.

    📍4/26- 218 😣- No worries, just my body's response to increased water consumption and physical activity.
