    Hi, I am Dawn, 60, 5'2"
    MFP start Oct 2018 - 191 pounds
    UGW 110-115

    Hoping to touch the 120s this month, definitely want to weigh less at the end of the month than what I am starting with. I lost 0.5lbs last month

    5/1 Sat - 131.6 - Day off, so more activity and time for meal prep

    5/2 Sun - 133.0 - Going to try to not let fluctuations bug me this month
    5/3 Mon - 132.2 - Looks like many of us had a weight spike early in the month. Going to try to get back to my start weight this week.
    5/4 Tues - 132.4
    5/5 Wed - 132.8
    5/6 Thurs - 132.0 - Still trying to get back to this month's start weight
    5/7 Fri - 131.3 - Up and down. i like the down better : - )
    5/8 Sat - 133.8 : - (

    05/09 – 134.3 - On track, so very surprised. I will try not to let it stress me out, lots of month left still.
    05/10 – 133.2 - Late dinner after working late last night. Hoping to see this number come down soon.
    05/11 - 133.8 - I have been "good". Trying not to get frustrated.
    05/12 - 133.4
    05/13 - 133.2
    05/14 - 131.3 - Happy to see this number!
    05/15 - 132.1
    05/16 - 132.1
    05/17 - 132.8
    05/18 - 133.1 - 2:30am weigh ins 5 days per week begin, kind of expected it to be higher, we'll see if it levels out.
    05/19 – 131.9 - Yay!
    05/20 - 132.7 - Keeping on track
    05/21 – 130.1 - New low! Getting closer to touching those 120s. I will try not to be upset if it jumps up again.
    05/22 – 132.0 - Indulgent evening. I'm okay with it, expected it.
    05/23 - 131.9 - Going for a hike between my split shifts today. It does so much for my mental/emotional health as well as my muscles : - )
    05/24 - 130.2 - Missed my hike yesterday due to weather. I work a split on Sundays and always look forward to the hike in between shifts. It is raining here. Most of my garden isn't in yet, so the rain is only helping my Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas.
    05/25 - 131.6 - Back to my start weight for the month, but 6 more days to go still.
    05/26 – 131.1 - Change of schedule starting today, I need to figure out what and when I am going to eat.
    05/27 – 131.9 - Late dinner, but rolling with it.
    05/28 – 133.5 - Ow
    05/29 – 133.8 - Far from my start weight. I haven't had a day off in 2 weeks, and don't foresee one for the near future. I need to adjust.
    05/30 – 132.9

    5/4: workout at home aiming for 45-60 minutes today
    5/5: fasting day, went for 3 mile hike with my dog this morning and planning on at home workout this evening for at least 30 minutes
    5/6: 166 lbs....definitely retaining some water so hopefully I will see a drop next week 🤷‍♀️ celebrating a friends birthday today, going to a state park to do a bunch of hiking so hopefully I will be burning more calories than we will be consuming tonight 🤞
    5/7: over indulged on pizza a bit last night, lots of sodium so going to focus on drinking extra fluids today....hiked a bit over 6 miles yesterday so going to make today a rest day
    5/8: long day at work had to force myself to get motivated to take my dog on a 2 mile walk/hike, in the 80’s today so trying to drink extra water
    5/9: Happy Mother’s Day! Fasting day, going to work out from home aiming for 45-60 minutes this evening 😸
    5/10: 163.8....expect a busy day at work but the weather is beautiful 😍 going to do a 3 mile hike after work with coworkers 😊
    5/11: rest day
    5/12: fast day, going to do at least a 3 mile hike with my dog. Since I’m fasting going to try and get 80-100 oz of fluids (water or tea) today 🤞
    5/13: 161.2 lbs! Much bigger drop than expected....not sure my scale is right??? I guess we will see what my next weigh day shows?? It’s my day off so going to hike this morning, climb a small mountain so should be a great workout 😊 Depending how I feel this evening may do a short workout at home as well and drink lots of water since it may have been a huge help from yesterday!
    5/14: should have been a rest day but did a little workout before bed
    5/15: going to try and get a hike in after work...the weather is looking stormy all next week 😬
    5/16: fast day, going to do some at home workout after work for 45-60 minutes

    5/18: rest day, but a little under my daily steps so might do something easy around the house
    5/19: fast day...rainy day so will try to get short walks when it’s not icky outside...45-60 minute at home workout this evening
    5/20: 158.6 lbs 🥳🥳🥳 I joined MyFitnessPal back in 2014....I was 158 lbs wanting to lose 10....a lot has happened over the years and instead of losing I kept gradually getting heavier until reaching over 200 lbs in 2020....to see 158 on the scale was amazing since I haven’t been in the 150’s for 6 years....so now that I am back to where I started 7 years ago l am finally going to finish what I started ❤️
    5/21:very tired after work so only managed a short walk/hike
    5/22: rest day technically, but I did get plenty of steps in at work today 👍
    5/23: fast day.... not getting my normal Sunday workout 😞... having to stay at work till 9 tonight...got about 10 minute workout when I stopped home before having to return to work....going to try and get in a few extra steps and drink extra water
    5/24: 159.8 lbs....was a bit of a disappointment to see an increase 😳 but I am going to hope it is just water retention and that I had a not so good night of sleep 🤞....going to stay focused and hope to see things back on track on Thursdays weigh in...going to do a hike this evening and continue to focus on drinking extra fluids with the temperatures being in the 80’s
    5/25: consumed way too much sugar this evening (small snow cone after work) and my body is not happy 😳 if I feel better going to try and do a short workout before bed 🤞
    5/26: fast day, did a 3 mile hike this morning
    5/27: 157.8 lbs, went over my calories today but will be better the rest of the week 😳 going to get a good workout in this evening so hopefully that will help 👍
    5/28: rest day
    5/29: beautiful day hoping to get a hike in this evening 😊
    5/30: fast day! Going to do a hike after work again, another day in the 70’s so going to take advantage before it gets really hot! May also do a little strength training before bed if I don’t feel too tired after the hike 😊
