    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA.

    Starting Weight (from May 31st): 206.4
    Goal: 201.4 (Five lb Loss)

    05/01 – 205.6 Happy to be off to a good start.
    05/02 - 203.0 Wowza! Happy Dance! Good choices yesterday and no bad snacks. Today and tomorrow will be Thai Food. (I split dinner into two meals). High sodium expected. Pushing water and good lunch choices today before my very late expected Thai dinner tonight.
    05/03 - 203.2 No Thai food afterall yesterday due to restaurant temporary closure. Ended up with Taco Bell and ate a bit more than I should have. However, I had pushed water all day and Fasted until 5:00 so it all paid off. Back to plan today.
    05/04 - 203.0 Look out 202’s….I’m coming for you!
    05/05 - 203.4 An unfair weight since yesterday was pretty perfect. Perhaps the Taco Bell is finally catching up from May 2nd. Today will be a day of higher calorie and carb just to confuse the metabolism but I’ll keep it reasonable with healthy calories and carbs. No junk.
    05/06 - 204.4 Up 1 lb from diet rest day. Pushing water and better meals today. Back on plan! BTW, I failed at the "no junk" plan from yesterday. Today I pay the fiddler.
    05/07 - 204.2 On my way back down from the rest day.
    05/08 - 204.8 Epic fail late last night, then no sleep as I laid in bed with chocolate caffeine and regret keeping me awake. Sleep last night 3 hours and 1 minute. Today will be better!
    05/09 – 204.2 Managed to sneak past the snack monster last night with something healthy and within plan. Epic win this time!
    05/10 – 203.8 I made good choices again. My NSV: Last night I got pretty hungry and decided to have some cheese nips. For the first time in years, I did not take the box to bed and watch TV with mindless eating. I measured out some, put them in a bowl and only ate what I had taken. Controlled!!!! I washed it down with tomato juice. It made a difference on the scale.
    05/11 - 203.2 Another drop on the scale due to a very low calorie and carb day. Pretty grossed out that my take-out dinner was cold and flavorless. Threw it in the trash and enjoyed a good movie instead. I am already overly hungry today due to the lack of calories yesterday. Taking my DGS’s to the salon today for their summer haircuts. Lunch will be out for their traditional treat. I will be mindful. I am planning a very low calorie/carb dinner to offset the lunch.

    December starting weight: 132.9

    After 10 days and eating at a deficit every day it seems like I should be down at least a pound (and not a mere .2) from the first of the month. I'm confident about my food calories most days since I measure everything. Restaurant food is of course an estimate based on eyeballed amounts and using primary ingredients plus I always pad with an extra 100. But, I've had only one restaurant meal during the first ten days.

    I suspect the Apple Watch/Fitness app is overstating the amount of calories burned. I'm giving myself 1200 calories plus active treadmill calories on the two rest days and 1400 calories plus active treadmill calories on the five workout days. I'm going to switch the two leg days to 1200 calories for the next week since those workouts are easier than the upper body ones and my legs are already stronger and more muscular than my upper body.

    Yeah, all good points.
    I have heard from others also that the Apple watch counts are not accurate.
    You are likely gaining muscle weight as well.

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

    Hoping to touch the 120s, maybe this month, definitely want to weigh less at the end of the month than what I am starting with. I gained 0.8lbs last month

    6/01 - 132.4 - (Using my end weight from May)
    6/02 - 132.3
    6/03 - 130.9 - Stressful day yesterday, thought that I would see a gain as the body would try to be holding on to fat during stress. Looks like quite a few people on here had stressful days yesterday too!
    6/04 - 131.1 - Productive day planned, with lots of activity.
    6/05 - 132.0 - I truly expected a loss today, not a gain. Maybe tomorrow's weigh in.
    6/06 - 133.4 - Ow
    6/07 - 132.0
    6/08 - 132.0 - I so seldom get the same weight two days in a row.
    6/09 - 130.9 - Hit this on the 3rd, glad to see it again.
    6/10 - 131.3 Busy work day ahead, I will prep my food
    6/11 - 131.2 - Quit one of my jobs halfway through the day yesterday, felt great. Hoping to up my nutrition and lower my stress level.
    6/12 - 132.0

    May goal 280 Lbs. (Ended at 280) Average step count 12,007
    June goal 268 Lbs.
    Ultimate goal - 225

    6/1 - 278
    6/2 - 278
    6/3 - 277 Going to be away from a scale for maybe 5 days will see if I can stay on track I hope I don't gain but also don't want to loss to much??

    6/7 - 273 Did not see this one coming? Lost way to much I have been out in the heat since the 3rd, working all day on resealing my motor home roof. I thought I was eating enough and consumed a lot of water to stay hydrated but lost to much to fast. Next time I will bring my scale with me to try and stop this. The phone only counts steps not all the work I was doing so had no clue to my calorie burn.

    6/8 - 275
    6/9 - 275
    6/12 - 275
