    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 -

    4/12 M - (run)
    4/13 T -
    4/14 W - (zumba)
    4/15 T - (run)
    4/16 F -
    4/17 S - (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.
    04/07 - 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!
    04/08 - 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.
    04/09 – 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.
    04/10 – 207.8 A bit better. Less movement due to rain.

    March starting weight: 178.6
    April starting weight: 172.6
    April goal: 167.0

    04/01: DNW - first full family visit post-Covid!
    04/02: DNW - traveling back from family visit.
    04/03: 173.5 - alright, not too far off track.
    04/04: 172. 6 - Worked 10 hours and was under calories.
    04/05: 171.7 - another 10-hour shift and under calories
    04/06: 171. 4 - under calories.
    04/07: 172.0 - under calories but over carbs.
    04/08: 173.3 - over carbs and calories.
    04/09: DNW - away from home.
    04/10: DNW - away from home. With the specialized therapy I need post-mastectomy, the facility is closer to my parents house than mine, so the kids and I stay with them for my sessions. I know the scale is going to have an uptick because there are several challenges here that I have not handled well - not drinking enough water, mom making fresh baked goodies everyday, no caffeine here (all decaf. Lol!), and the stress of being out of my element and keeping the kids from destroying their house and eating poorly all day. These are all things within my control to manage. I just need to prepare and plan better before our next trip.

    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
    4/12
    4/13
    4/14
    4/15
    4/16
    4/17

    @BittersweetVita


    My very best to you during this time. I am a breast cancer survivor who has not had reconstructive surgery. At the time of my partial mastectomy my husband was very sick and dying (dialysis every other day). There was so much travel from my very rural area. I still had 3 kids at home, (age 13, 13 and 15) to drive around and no time for myself.

    It is something that I can still correct now that my husband has passed and my kids have grown up and out (all but one). It would still be a lot of travel for me (my treatment center was 4 hours each way by xway).. I just have not decided yet. I will be 61 in May. There is the possibility of another plastic surgeon and breast reconstruction center about 2 hours away and out of my normal medical practice.

    It is nice to have choices and I am so glad that you have found what is right for you. I congratulate you on your successes and decisions. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I would love it if you could keep me posted (even through PM if you like) on your progress and thoughts. {{hugs}} to you.

    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.

    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.
