    Thanks @nikkit321

    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2"
    MFP Start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    UGW 110-115-ish
    Daily weighing keeps me accountable, prevents me from a few extra snacks the night before, and shows trends of perhaps what to avoid or limit in order to succeed at weight loss.

    WEEK ONE:
    Thursday 4/1: 132.3 - It would be great to touch the 120s this month
    Friday 4/2: 133.8 - wrong direction
    Saturday 4/3: 133.7 - Expecting a woosh, feeling lean today, I had thought that the scale would have been kinder today : - )

    WEEK TWO:
    4/4: 133.1 - Not exactly the woosh back to the 131s that I was getting last month, but I will stay at it.
    4/5:
    4/6: 134.3 - No reason for this gain.
    4/7: 133.7 - I have been steadfast, but my schedule is going to be turned upside down today so I will need a new strategy.
    4/8: 132.6 - Almost back to my start weight for the month.
    4/9: 133.2 - 3am weigh in, but I wanted to get on with my coffee and water, so weighed. Maybe I will be less tomorrow if I can sleep longer.
    4/10: 132.1 - Much better

    WEEK THREE:
    4/11: - 133.8 - Huge jump. All I can think of is that I had some marinated Prawn Skewers for dinner last night from a deli counter, perhaps they were full of salt? They were low in calorie.
    4/12: 132.4 - Close to my start weight, maybe tomorrow.
    4/13: 133.7 - I have to take these fluctuations in stride. I was very late home from work, thus a late dinner. Calories and exercise were on point.
    4/14: 133.3 - Another very late dinner, but I had to eat. Calories and exercise on track. A couple of more days of this and then some days off from multiple jobs.
    4/15: 132.1 - That is more like it.
    4/16: 131.5 - First time seeing this number. Yay!
    4/17: 133.3 - Expected the jump, I indulged in my monthly feast of Ribs. I will work it back down

    WEEK FOUR:
    4/18: 133.1 - Coming back down post ribs dinner.
    4/19: 134.2 - Ouch
    4/20: 133.0 - I really never take those fluctuations very well. I hadn't seen the 134s in awhile and have no desire to revisit them again!
    4/21: 132.9 - Still above my start weight with 9 more weigh days to go. My schedule is new, that might be part of it. This monthly format is great!
    4/22: 133.1 - Going to be indulgent tonight and possibly tomorrow too.
    4/23: 132.4 - Almost back to the month's start weight. I have added a new job into my mix of gig work, and have been battling a sore shoulder for a few weeks. The weather here is rainy mixed with a bit of snow, so walking trails are out for me right now - rain is forecast until April 30th. Not that I have really had the time anyway. Any tips on relieving a sore shoulder are welcome!
    4/24

    WEEK FIVE:
    4/25
    4/26
    4/27
    4/28
    4/29
    4/30

    I'm right there with you on the sore shoulder. My dr was no help because nothing was torn, which is good but frustrating. I researched physical therapy exercises for the shoulder and alternated heat & cold packs and of course took an anti-inflammatory. The main thing that I think really helped was seeing a massage therapist - she worked really deep which definitely didn't feel good, but I think that's what has fixed the problem. It still has taken months but until seeing her I saw no improvement. I hope you are able to heal your shoulder quickly!

    April starting weight: 190.8 oh dear Lord:#:(
    April goal: be more intentional so I can end the month lighter than where I start:
    - more intentional movement throughout the day
    - plan meals ahead
    - WATER
    - run 3x/week and walk the other days

    4/1 T - 190.8 Going to try a run today after some yoga stretches; haven't ran for a week so fingers crossed my calf muscles have improved. Dinner: beef roast and veg. Update: ran 10min, legs started cramping so walked 5, ran 5, walked 5, ran 5. Total 20m run, and I'm ok with that.
    4/2 F - 190.8 Updated with yesterday's run info. Today planning on a walk, will run again tomorrow.
    4/3 S - 190.6 ran 10, walked 5, ran 10, walked 5, ran 5; total 25m run. Feeling much better in the calves since I'm not running two days straight. Sometimes I forget my age...
    4/4 S - 193.8 ugh Chinese from Friday hit

    4/5 M - 190.6 3 rounds of 10min runs, felt good. Egg & avocado for dinner.
    4/6 T - 188.2 walk today, planning to run again Thursday. Beef roast & broccoli salad.
    4/7 W - 188.2 walking with the dogs today, loving the beautiful weather! dinner is egg/avo/salsa
    4/8 T - 186.4 surprised at this number but not holding my breath that it'll stick around tomorrow. I really pushed water yesterday, made good food choices; will do the same today. Planning a run today of 3 rounds of 10m along with walking the dogs in between rain spells. Dinner is beef roast and veg.
    4/9 F - 185.2 what???? Perhaps the fresh air walking with the dogs is helping? I don't know - maybe it's because I walk with the dogs am, noon, and evening so the burn is spread thru the day? No clue...I really hope I can hold onto the number thru the weekend, which is by far my weak point. The husky is yelling at me right now for the morning walk, so off I go!
    4/10 S - (run)
    4/11 S -

    Run plan for the week: 3 run intervals of 10m w/ 5m walk breaks (reduced walk from 10m to 5m)
    4/12 M - (run) 188.2 so I've proven that logging on the weekend is critical, and also that gluten is my enemy. If I want to succeed I have to change what I'm doing (or not doing).
    4/13 T - 187.8 good run yesterday, reduced my walk intervals and amazingly enough struggled more with breathing than I did with my legs. Walked 2 miles with the dogs outside, and another 3 on the treadmill.
    4/14 W - 189.2 absolutely no idea why, guess it's my dear friend water retention again. zumba tonight and hope to get the dogs out.
    4/15 T - 188.0 My run will be 3 rounds of 10m again; this week I dropped my walk interval from 10m to 5m
    4/16 F - 187.2 nice surprise this morning, now I just have to stay focused; heading out of town with my sister today and tomorrow, need to stay focused on my goals
    4/17 S - no weigh in since out of town
    4/18 S - 188.8

    Run plan for the week: 3 run intervals of 11m w/ 4m walk breaks
    4/19 M - (run) 190.8 here I am, back at my beginning weight. Will run and sweat today, and drink a ton of water!
    4/20 T - 189.8 glug glug
    4/21 W - (zumba) 188.2
    4/22 T - (run) 190.2
    4/23 F - 187.2
    4/24 S - (run)

    Run plan for the week: 3 run intervals of 12m w/ 3m walk breaks

    4/26 M - (run)

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 60 years old and from the Midwest USA.

    Starting Weight (from March 31st): 208.2
    Goal: 203.2 (Five lb Loss)

    04/01 – -207.6 Off to a better start! Good luck this round everyone! Remember to have some fun too!
    04/02 - -207.6 I definitely made some extra sacrifices yesterday so I’m a little disappointed to see no change. I guess I will just have to trust the process.
    04/03 - -208.6 I am beginning to feel that I may be lactose intolerant based on how bloated I feel after eating cheese or drinking a glass of milk. I will be watching this. Up one full pound after a grilled cheese for dinner that made me feel miserable and pregnant.
    04/04 - -207.6 That is better. No milk yesterday and no cheese.
    04/05 - -206.6 Watching the dairy by weaning down.
    04/06 - -205.6 Down 3 pounds in 3 days. Of course I am getting over 20,000 steps per day with the yardwork which is very helpful but weaning down on the dairy may really be making a difference. I’m going to double-down on those efforts!
    04/07 - 207.6 Two pounds overnight means something else is affecting my weight. I ate healthy but a little too late and close to bedtime. Fell asleep early and woke up after 3.5 hours completely done with sleeping. An early weigh-in. One glass of milk, no cheese.
    04/08 – -208.2 Yikes. I thought a drop was in order. Good healthy eating yesterday and a nice long hike following the river. Had a rare free evening and I jumped on it! The only thing I can figure is that I had 24 oz total of mixed drinks (vodka & orange juice) last night with a friend. I’m not clear on the affects of alcohol on me since I rarely drink.
    04/09 – -207.8 A bit better. Less movement due to rain.
    04/10 - -207.2 If I could hit my goal of 203.2 by the end of the month I would be over the moon! If I could hit 199 point ANYTHING by my birthday May 10th, I would probably faint! However, NEVER say never. Onederland Here I Come! (Can you tell I am in a positive, enlightened and GOOD mood? Happy Saturday Everyone!
    04/11 - -206.4 I skipped dinner (by accident) then ate a handful of cookies because I was so tired last night. No exactly the correct and healthy way to lose weight. I don’t know if it will stay off, but I am going to try to do better today although the house will be full of people who are working on my renovation today. Fingers crossed.
    04/12 - -207.4 Up & Down and All Around! I ate 3 meals yesterday (I usually eat 2). Food choices were good and quantities were fair. I think 3 meals just added up to more carbs than necessary. 11,000 steps and worked on yard clean-up for awhile which helped burn some calories. Rain today.
    04/13 - -207.2 Progress in any amount or form is a plus.
    04/14 - -207.6 Yesterday was a good day. This is likely due to no TMI.
    04/15 - -207.6 Grateful for no change after 2 unexpected slices of pizza last night courtesy of a friend. I worked hard in the yard yesterday evening to help work it off!
    04/16 - -207.2 Worked a half pound off in my yard. Keeping busy means less food too. Win, Win.
    04/17 - -206.6 On my way to a better place in regards to my weight. I can’t wait to get there! Feeling hopeful today!
    04/18 – -208.2 Frustrated in a really bad way today. Lots of steps and calorie burn yesterday. Food within calories. Carbs a bit high. No TMI and a lack of sleep last night. But mathematically, I should have lost a little more today. So sick of this! Gotta get my head back into a better place again!
    04/19 - -206.0 Lots of movement yesterday helped. Travel today will mean dinner out. Gotta watch the quanities!
    04/20 – -206.0 No damage on the scale yet from the travel and dinner out. Once home last night, I avoided all late-night snacks. Hoping the scale will not go up in the coming days.
    04/21 – -207.0 Well there it is, showing up from the travel two days ago maybe? Also, a very late dinner last night and an early weigh-in this morning. More travel today (Dentist) and tomorrow (Covid-shot #2). The scale is going to be going haywire! Gotta just get thru this time period.
    04/22 - -207.2 Light meals while traveling yesterday but I missed out on my normal movement and activity. Indulgent dessert that I should not have finished. I’m shocked the scale didn’t go up more. The dessert was very dense. Covid shot #2 today. Traveling again but I will be home in a few hours. I can likely eat at home if I start with a small breakfast in my own kitchen. Thanks ladies for all the support. It helps more than you know!
    04/23 - -208.6 I feel weak, dizzy and horrid today after the shot yesterday but I am still grateful that I could get it. A slight headache too, but no fever or chills. I woke up at 4:00 a.m and couldn’t get back to sleep. There is no way I can stay sitting up today. Even with the expected work crew, I’ve got to stay laying down. Tons of water yesterday. I ended up with subway because we passed one and my brother wanted it so bad (he doesn’t drive). Too much junk last night on the grab and go. Too bad my appetite wasn’t affected. Eating felt fine.

    @syreina ... looks like you're making progress this month. That must feel encouraging. :)

    @LazyBlondeChef Thank you. As much as I wanted to get away from calorie counting, I know that it helps and it's starting to show. Now, I'm trying to keep up this momentum.

    I'm really liking the Fitbod app since it takes all the guesswork out of what workout should I do today.

    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2"
    MFP Start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    UGW 110-115-ish
    Daily weighing keeps me accountable, prevents me from a few extra snacks the night before, and shows trends of perhaps what to avoid or limit in order to succeed at weight loss.

    WEEK ONE:
    Thursday 4/1: 132.3 - It would be great to touch the 120s this month
    Friday 4/2: 133.8 - wrong direction
    Saturday 4/3: 133.7 - Expecting a woosh, feeling lean today, I had thought that the scale would have been kinder today : - )

    WEEK TWO:
    4/4: 133.1 - Not exactly the woosh back to the 131s that I was getting last month, but I will stay at it.
    4/5:
    4/6: 134.3 - No reason for this gain.
    4/7: 133.7 - I have been steadfast, but my schedule is going to be turned upside down today so I will need a new strategy.
    4/8: 132.6 - Almost back to my start weight for the month.
    4/9: 133.2 - 3am weigh in, but I wanted to get on with my coffee and water, so weighed. Maybe I will be less tomorrow if I can sleep longer.
    4/10: 132.1 - Much better

    WEEK THREE:
    4/11: - 133.8 - Huge jump. All I can think of is that I had some marinated Prawn Skewers for dinner last night from a deli counter, perhaps they were full of salt? They were low in calorie.
    4/12: 132.4 - Close to my start weight, maybe tomorrow.
    4/13: 133.7 - I have to take these fluctuations in stride. I was very late home from work, thus a late dinner. Calories and exercise were on point.
    4/14: 133.3 - Another very late dinner, but I had to eat. Calories and exercise on track. A couple of more days of this and then some days off from multiple jobs.
    4/15: 132.1 - That is more like it.
    4/16: 131.5 - First time seeing this number. Yay!
    4/17: 133.3 - Expected the jump, I indulged in my monthly feast of Ribs. I will work it back down

    WEEK FOUR:
    4/18: 133.1 - Coming back down post ribs dinner.
    4/19: 134.2 - Ouch
    4/20: 133.0 - I really never take those fluctuations very well. I hadn't seen the 134s in awhile and have no desire to revisit them again!
    4/21: 132.9 - Still above my start weight with 9 more weigh days to go. My schedule is new, that might be part of it. This monthly format is great!
    4/22: 133.1 - Going to be indulgent tonight and possibly tomorrow too.
    4/23: 132.4 - Almost back to the month's start weight. I have added a new job into my mix of gig work, and have been battling a sore shoulder for a few weeks. The weather here is rainy mixed with a bit of snow, so walking trails are out for me right now - rain is forecast until April 30th. Not that I have really had the time anyway. Any tips on relieving a sore shoulder are welcome!
    4/24: 133.5 - I was a bit indulgent
