    July Starting Weight: 141.4
    July Goal Weight: 137

    7/1: 141.4
    7/2: 140.8
    7/3: 140.8
    7/4: 141
    7/5: 140.8
    7/6: 140.8 This is getting silly!
    7/7: 140.8 This is the most stuckest I’ve ever been. There better be a big whoosh after this!
    Week 1 Loss: -0.6

    7/8: 140.8 This is impossible. Not even a wiggle!
    7/9: 141 Well at least its different haha!
    7/10: 140 About time!!
    7/11: 139.4 New decade!
    7/12: 139.8
    7/13: 139
    7/14: 139.8 I ate dinner later than usual, may be the reason for this little bump. I was within my calorie limit.
    Week 2 Loss: -0.6

    7/15: 140.2 For the past week or so, when I ate over 1100 calories, I gained the next day. So I'm gonna stay under 1100 for the foreseeable future, except for special occasions. I have a birthday party to attend Saturday and a family reunion the next Saturday, so there will be some significant face stuffage then.
    7/16: 140
    7/17: 141.6 Had a fairly hefty dinner last night, so this is mostly sodium and actual weight of the food, which is still with me.
    7/18: 141
    7/19: 139.8
    7/20: 138.2 Well, that was a nice whoosh! I am unofficially down 30 pounds since January 15. I say unofficially because my official weigh day is Friday. And I'm eating Chinese food for dinner tomorrow.
    7/21: 137.8
    Week 3 GAIN: 1.8

    7/22: 142
    This is mostly sodium and weight of food from eating out last night, but dang! I didn’t think I ate that much!
    7/23: 139.6
    Much better!
    7/24: DNW
    7/25: DNW
    7/26: DNW
    7/27: 139.8
    Had a family reunion Saturday where there was much food. I actually didn't eat to the point that I was uncomfortable, but it was enough to make me too scared to get on the scale the last few days!
    7/28: 139.2

    July Starting Weight - 206.2
    July Goal - <204

    Adding my Happy Scale Trend because these fluctuations are messing with my head. The trend gives me a better view of my overall progress. Happy Scale Smoothing based on change over previous 14 days
    Date - Daily WI / 14 day TREND
    7/1 – 206.2 / 206.8
    7/2 – 207.6 / 206.9
    7/3 – 207.4 / 206.9
    7/4 – 207.1 / 206.8
    7/5 – 208.7 / 206.9 - DARN!
    7/6 – 207.6 / 206.9
    7/7 – 206.4 / 206.7
    7/8 – 205.7 / 206.6 - Finally the right direction!
    7/9 – 206.1 / 206.5
    7/10 – 206.1 / 206.4
    7/11 - 205.4 / 206.3
    7/12 - 204.9 / 206.2 - I’m below 205 barely but finally
    7/13 - 205.2 / 206.1 - Teeter tottering
    7/14 - 207.0 / 206.2 - Not sure what happened???
    7/15 - 207.2 / 206.3
    7/16 - 207.4 / 206.3 - Need to clean up my meal planning
    7/17 - 206.2 / 206.3
    7/18 - 207.0 / 206.4 - High anxiety is not helping
    7/19 – 205.9 / 206.2
    7/20 - 207.1 / 206.2 - Restaurants & sodium … need I say more?
    Broke out of the 206.x trend and below my starting weight for July!
    7/21 – 204.9 / 205.9 - Water does a body good!
    7/22 – 204.3 / 205.6 - HaPpY DaNcE! 2nd reading in a row below 205
    7/23 - 204.6 / 205.1 - Love the lows but the trend gives me insight that I’m making real progress
    7/24 - 204.5 / 204.8
    7/25 - 205.0 / 204.7 - Slight bump up on the daily WI due to pizza night but still trending downward!
    7/26 – 204.6 / 204.6
    7/27 – 204.6 / 204.5 - 14 day trend is below my WI this morning!
    Uncertain how the happy scale smoothing aspect of the trending works but I do like it based on change over previous 14 day instead of 7 day (longer view). This combo seems more consistent and less jumpy than the seven day moving average.
    7/28 – 205.2 / 204.7
    7/29 – 205.0 / 204.7

    I am Dawn, 60, 5'2"
    MFP start weight 191
    UGW 110-115

    June was a bit of a bust, up 1.3 pounds.
    Hoping to touch the 120s this month.

    Thursday July 01 - 131.8
    Friday July 02 - 132.9 - Had Ribs last night, the gain could have been worse.
    Saturday July 03 - 131.7
    Sunday July 04 - 132.3
    Monday July 05 - 133.2 - Argh
    Tuesday July 06 - 132.4
    Wednesday July 07 - 132.1 - at this rate I hope to be back to my month's start weight tomorrow
    Thursday July 08 - 133.0 - Nope
    Friday July 09 - 133.2 - Wrong direction
    Saturday July 10 - 133.5 - 2 full days off, more time to work out, create healthy food, work in my garden. I got my second vaccine yesterday, so I will be fully protected in 2 weeks : - )
    Sunday July 11 - 133.9 - I got indulgent, I will have to work this back down.
    Monday July 12 - 134.4 - I have to get on top of this!
    Tuesday July 13 - 133.9 - I worked the evening shift last night, was home so late and ate so late. I have the same shift tonight, I will have to figure something out.
    Wednesday July 14 - 132.2 - Getting a little closer to my start weight of the month
    Thursday July 15 - 132.2
    Friday July 16 - 133.1
    Saturday July 17 - 132.9
    Sunday July 18 133.3 -
    Monday July 19 - 133.9 - No reason whatsoever for this gain. I have been teetering between overweight and normal for the last 2 months, I really would like to get firmly into the (high at least) normal range.
    Tuesday July 20 - 132.8 - A pound above my start weight
    Wednesday July 21 - 133.3 - sheesh
    Thursday July 22 - 132.8 - Morning weigh ins are never predictable for me.
    Friday July 23 - 132.7 - Late dinner again due to my changed work schedule. A woosh would be great!
    Saturday July 24 - 132.1 - Running out of days to get at least back to this month's start weight. I am trying lol
    Sunday July 25 - 132.4 - I see that I had my dates wrong, changed them, now feel like I still have a chance to lose a bit more before the end of the month : - )
    Monday July 26 - 132.4 - 6 weigh-ins to get back to my month's start weight.
    Tuesday July 27 - 132.2
    Wednesday July 28 - 132.1
    Thursday July 29 - 134.8 - Argh

    July starting weight: 184.8
    July goal: 182

    7/1 - 184.8 a new "low" on this journey down. A little scary starting the month with a low as I bounce up and down many times during the month.
    7/2 - 185.2 slight bounce up, but it's ok. Fireworks tonight!
    7/3 -
    7/4 - 187.0

    7/5 - 188.0 ugh daily jumps but back on track today. It's fluid retention but it'll still take all week to shed.
    7/6 - 187.0 off to the Y today for a run and some weight machines. I think dinner is going to be a hunk of meat and a veg.
    7/7 - 186.2 my silly scale gave me 185.2 2x, then on the 3rd jumped up a pound and stayed there for 2 more times. So I'm going with the higher even though I liked the first number much better. I go with whatever number displays 3x, first lol. No run yesterday, the lovely FL hurricane is affecting air pressure, which bothers my 4 and 6 year old fractures in my left foot and leg...didn't even know I hurt until I tried running. I did walk though, and used the rowing machine. Will walk again today, either on the treadmill or outside if it doesn't rain.
    7/8 - 185.4 didn't walk yesterday, worked too late. Still struggling with putting myself higher on the priority list. Raining today, still achy...
    7/9 - 185.4 I'll take it as a win today. TGIF!!
    7/10 - 185.4 at least I'm being consistent and not bouncing lol Happy weekend!!
    7/11 - 187.0 guess I got slapped for yesterday's comment lol

    7/12 - 187.2 ok, gotta control weekends. I have a work conference in mid-September and none of my work clothes fit! I have a deadline and need a solid loss.
    7/13 - 186.6 got a run in last night, planning on the Y today
    7/14 - 186.0 planning a walk today, either outside or inside if it rains. So over all the rain...10 days of it and it makes my old bone breaks hurt.
    7/15 - 186.6 no idea why I'm up today but didn't walk yesterday. It's a new day!
    7/16 - 187.6 up again...yesterday I ran and weights at the Y, good food. Whatever.
    7/17 - 189.6 yup, I glutened myself and it wasn't as good as I had imagined
    7/18 - 188.8 still feeling bloated and a lot of water retention from the gluten Friday, but it's starting to leave. Y today for another run.

    7/19 - 188.4 still working back from gluten...takes so long. I have to admit that I don't log my food very often. I've been inspired by some comments yesterday and have prelogged my day. Will comment here so hold me to it!
    7/20 - 187.4 my goal for July is to end at my starting weight. Walked for an hour yesterday. Workout at the Y later, drink a ton of water, off to log my food for the day now!
    7/21 - 187.6 up a smidge, didn't workout yesterday so planning it tonight. Logging my food now.
    7/22 - 186.6 Y workout tonight, and off to log today's food
    7/23 - 187.8 no idea why but didn't manage a workout yesterday. This week has been rough, glad it's ending. My entire goal for the month is to get back to my initial July number.
    7/24 - ???? I did weigh yesterday but never logged it here and now I don't remember.
    7/25 - 186.6 still pushing to get back to the beginning of the month. Planning a workout and run today.

    7/26 - 188.4 this morning. Yesterday was a good day so not sure why the 2lb bump. I didn't manage a workout/run yesterday but just got back from a 2mile walk w/ the dogs so off to a healthy start today. I'm going to look for a scale trend app because I agree, the fluctuations are messing with my head and motivation.
    7/27 - 187.6 just walked the dogs, I'm enjoying being outside first thing in the morning, and the dogs definitely like it! Workout/run tonight, I'm determined to make it happen!!
    7/28 - 187.6 steamy walk with the dogs this morning, but I did manage to workout last night.
    7/29 - 186.6 thunderstorm this morning so no walk with the dogs, will run tonight.

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.


    Starting Weight (from June 30th): 196.4
    Goal: 191.4 (Five lb Loss):
    Ending Weight for Challenge:

    07/01 – 197.6 After a tummy illness which produced a false low weight, I think this is likely my true current weight. I did very well for an old gal in June. I hope to keep up the progress in July. Let’s make it happen my friends!
    07/02 - 198.6 My son’s birthday was yesterday. High calorie celebrations. Today I will be very careful as I have a very long trip tomorrow and there will be multiple meals out. Gotta get past this madness!
    07/03 - 197.8 I did pretty well yesterday and increased my movement a bit. Travel today. I expect the scale will be up tomorrow, but it will be temporary.
    07/04 - 199.2 I expected this after a very long day of travel. I am really going to have to make some selective choices and watch my quantities today to keep the scale in Onederland. Today is a food-driven American Holiday so I must really tip-toe today but I know I can do it. Happy Independence Day to all my American Friends.
    07/05 - 198.0 Okay then. Now I’m glad I kept the calories low on my 4th of July holiday! It pays off! Lots of stresses this week. Very big ones that is so bad I can barely sleep. By Friday all should be resolved. Praying for strength to stay the course until then.
    07/06 - 197.4 Busy day yesterday with lots of visitors so I didn’t get in any extra movement. Glad to see the scale down anyway. Today I travel and lunch will be Thai food. One of my all-time favorites and such a treat that the town I am going to has a Chinese-Thai restaurant. Scale may swell up from it in the coming days but I know the bloat will only be temporary so I am not going to sweat the small or the temporary. I can live my life and still be victorious. Setbacks make my journey a little longer, that’s all.
    07/07 - 198.0 Travel weight and restaurant lunch showing up on the scale this morning. Tonight will be leftovers so it may affect the scale tomorrow too. I plan on making adjustments to the overall day to make up for it. It rained all night and will be raining all day so outdoors are a no-go. Expecting a worker here today anyway. I will try to use my stairs to get in some steps with extra effort.
    07/08 - 198.4 Uptick due to the leftovers from the Thai restaurant. Temporary weight. I’m not worried. I’ll pee it out LOL.
    07/09 – 196.6 It has been about 9 days since I was down to this approximate weight (June 30th). Finally all my travel weight, the restaurants, the car sitting is receding. Huge stresses this week also that only happen once or twice in a lifetime. Got through them without signing myself into the looney bin. I can’t say that it was completely successful, but just that it is over puts me back in the functional category. Finally 5 hours of sleep instead of 2 or 3 all week!
    07/10 – 197.6 Ouch! I’m not sure what happened. I took a short walk yesterday. My calories were not too bad but I did have some ice cream that was not sugar free. My bad. I’ll make today better.
    07/11 - 197.6 Calories were okay yesterday but the choices were questionable. I am going to work today at better healthier meals. I’ve got to stop being lazy about cooking. Sometimes I just don’t feel like messing up the kitchen! My workers didn’t leave until 9:00 PM. They will be back today.
    07/12 - 195.8 I think I am going to be in a good mood all day. I haven’t been this low in quite some time. Goodbye Covid-19 pounds!
    07/13 - 195.2 I got pretty hungry last night. I realized my calories for the day were still a bit low. Canned Organic Tomato Basil soup did the trick. It fit within my calorie budget and the liquid aspect of it filled my belly. High sodium though so I’m glad to not see a jump on the scale (especially since I ate it so late). Hopefully, with extra water, there will be no impact upcoming.
    07/14 - 196.0 Too much sodium lately. Last night my calories were a bit up at about 1550. My bad snack consisted of peanut butter filled pretzels with that big chunky salt on them. The day before was canned soup which usually makes me retain water. Today is a trip to the dairy queen with son & his friend. I must be reasonable with the DQ lunch and work it off later. Workers will be here later this afternoon so my privacy will be affected. I’ll walk in the yard, and also use my indoor steps to get in some form of workout.
    07/15 - 196.8 Dairy Queen yesterday. No TMI x 2 days. Recipes for disaster overall. Today is the day I make a step in the right direction again. I just hope my body cooperates by working properly. Time to pull out the cleanse tea.
    07/16 - 195.6 Much better. Lost some of that water retention finally. Clease tea helped a little, not a lot. I will work on more steps today, I was only at 9000+ yesterday and I want to hit my 10,000 daily. No excuses when the weather is nice and not raining. Even if I have to get them in my yard!
    07/17 - 195.4 Sometimes progress is in leaps & bounds. Sometimes in slow Chinese torture type drips. I’ll take progress any way I can get it. Feeling more fit today which is also a plus!
    07/18 - 194.8 I had a great day yesterday. I logged food for the first time in 1 ½ years (pre-Covid). I felt ready to face my choices in my food and exercise. I see this as further venturing into my journey, deep into the woods of the unknown. Time to face my demons!
    07/19 – 194.0 This may be a temporary low as I ended up with an extra low calorie day yesterday due to time constraints. Tomorrow will give the bigger picture. I burned a lot of extra calories yesterday also because I scrubbed down my whole house yesterday outside which is not something I do everyday. I love seeing this lower number and I hope it sticks. I will have to plan carefully today.
    07/20 - 194.4 No reason for the uptick. All my calories were in the green with plenty left over. My carbs were on the low end. No high-sodium foods that should have caused this. Sometimes it is just a mystery but it does eventually move forward again so I am just taking it in stride. I am still down 2 pounds from my challenge starting weight.
    07/21 – 193.4 The results of the past couple of days finally showed up on the scale. Now to hang on and keep the 180’s in my sights!
    07/22 – 194.2 Dammit! I got really hungry last night because dinner earlier just didn’t satisfy. I ended up eating extra “diet” snacks. I was in the red by 199 calories. 0.8 heavier today which is concerning because I am having a long travel day today which will mean restaurants and sitting. I dread tomorrow’s weigh-in! On the good side – my trend weight is still going down. Staying grateful!
    07/23 - 196.4 The results of Thursday travel and that dastardly mini-binge Wednesday night. I refuse to allow it to stay in my life! Today will be a very low cal day. Lots of water. Some mini-walks and some extra movement. I expect a whoosh tomorrow as long as I follow plan. Of course, it’s easy to say when you’re not hungry. Hopefully this great attitude and plan will stick with me throughout the day!
    07/24 - 196.6 Out to dinner last night unexpectedly. Kept a good eye on the menu and avoided dessert (my weakness). So, today will be my low calorie day instead. Pouring the rain. I’ll be stuck inside all day. Ugh!
    07/25 - 194.8 Kept my extra low calorie day at 1004 yesterday with lots of veggies. Today I travel again and am meeting an old friend for lunch who is visiting Michigan from Tennessee. I will try to keep it reasonable. I am so excited to see her! It’s been a few years.
    07/26 – 194.8 Grateful for the steady weight after the special dinner outing yesterday. Down 1.6 pounds from the start. I am going to buckle down until the final weigh-in. I just hope there is no more unexpected travel as it always throws me off.
    07/27 – 193.4 A nice whoosh. Dinner was very late last night. No sleep either. Bat in my house which I hope escaped out of my attached garage doors I opened before I hid like a sissy in my bedroom with my new cat. No sign of it this morning but where would it be sleeping in here during the day? Any advice or help is appreciated folks!
    07/28 – 193.2 No sign of the bat last night but I’m not feeling super confident yet. Keeping eyes peeled here and also watching my cat to see how she is behaving. Feeling very tired today. Not much sleep lately. I feel like staying in my PJ’s all day and curling up to a book but I am going out of town today to look at a car I may want to buy. Dinner will be out and scale will probably go up tomorrow but I know it will only be temporary.
    07/29 – 194.4 Expected after the travel yesterday. I will have leftovers today for dinner so I’m not sure how that will affect the scale tomorrow for the weigh-in. I will, otherwise, IF 16/8 today, push water, and watch my nighttime snacks. I am grateful I am still down 2 pounds for the month. Progress! I signed on the newer used car at the dealership yesterday. I asked them to add remote start, change the grill in the front because I found a small crack in it although it’s never been in an accident (grocery cart?). They are also going to deliver it to me when all is done. That is great considering it is almost 100 miles away each way. Spoil me already! No bat detected last night before sleep…….

    7/12: 139.8
    7/13: 139
    7/14: 139.8 I ate dinner later than usual, may be the reason for this little bump. I was within my calorie limit.
    Week 2 Loss: -0.6

    7/15: 140.2 For the past week or so, when I ate over 1100 calories, I gained the next day. So I'm gonna stay under 1100 for the foreseeable future, except for special occasions. I have a birthday party to attend Saturday and a family reunion the next Saturday, so there will be some significant face stuffage then.
    7/16: 140
    7/17: 141.6 Had a fairly hefty dinner last night, so this is mostly sodium and actual weight of the food, which is still with me.

    7/19: 139.8
    7/20: 138.2 Well, that was a nice whoosh! I am unofficially down 30 pounds since January 15. I say unofficially because my official weigh day is Friday. And I'm eating Chinese food for dinner tomorrow.
    7/21: 137.8
    Week 3 GAIN: 1.8

    7/22: 142
    This is mostly sodium and weight of food from eating out last night, but dang! I didn’t think I ate that much!

    Much better!
    7/24: DNW
    7/25: DNW
    7/26: DNW
    7/27: 139.8
    Had a family reunion Saturday where there was much food. I actually didn't eat to the point that I was uncomfortable, but it was enough to make me too scared to get on the scale the last few days!
    7/28: 139.2
    Week 4 Loss -1.4

    7/29: 138.2

    I'm Anna Height: 5'4" Age: 40
    July 21 weight: 138
    July end goal weight: 136
    Ultimate goal: 130

    I'm also tracking my fat loss, since scale weight is only part of the story of body composition. I intend for my goal weight to reflect only fat loss. I also measure my waist to track that as well since that is ultimately what I care about.

    07/21 - 138, 35 inch low waist, 3 mile run, eating on track
    07/22 - 138, 35" low waist, 30 min HIIT cardio, eating on track
    07/23 - 137.6, 35" low waist, 45 min strength training, walking,
    07/24- 138, strength training, 2.5 mi run, too much snacking
    07/25 - 138, 2.5 mi run, eating on track
    07/26 - 139 (feeling bloated, hoping just water weight), strength training, treadmill, eating on track
    07/27 = 136.8 (woot woot!), strength training, walking, eating on track
    07/28 = 136.8, 34.75" low waist (it's going down!), 3 mile run, a bit of extra snacking
    07/29= 138.1 (hoping water weight), 34.75" low waist, 3 mile run,

    July has been a month full of ups and downs, holidays, vacations, family get-togethers. Many have had successful months, others (like me) spent the month bouncing up and down. Remember, you only fail if you stop trying!

    The August thread is up - I hope you join us again next month!

    July Starting Weight - 206.2
    July Goal - <204

    Adding my Happy Scale Trend because these fluctuations are messing with my head. The trend gives me a better view of my overall progress. Happy Scale Smoothing based on change over previous 14 days
    Date - Daily WI / 14 day TREND
    7/1 – 206.2 / 206.8
    7/2 – 207.6 / 206.9
    7/3 – 207.4 / 206.9
    7/4 – 207.1 / 206.8
    7/5 – 208.7 / 206.9 - DARN!
    7/6 – 207.6 / 206.9
    7/7 – 206.4 / 206.7
    7/8 – 205.7 / 206.6 - Finally the right direction!
    7/9 – 206.1 / 206.5
    7/10 – 206.1 / 206.4
    7/11 - 205.4 / 206.3
    7/12 - 204.9 / 206.2 - I’m below 205 barely but finally
    7/13 - 205.2 / 206.1 - Teeter tottering
    7/14 - 207.0 / 206.2 - Not sure what happened???
    7/15 - 207.2 / 206.3
    7/16 - 207.4 / 206.3 - Need to clean up my meal planning
    7/17 - 206.2 / 206.3
    7/18 - 207.0 / 206.4 - High anxiety is not helping
    7/19 – 205.9 / 206.2
    7/20 - 207.1 / 206.2 - Restaurants & sodium … need I say more?
    Broke out of the 206.x trend and below my starting weight for July!
    7/21 – 204.9 / 205.9 - Water does a body good!
    7/22 – 204.3 / 205.6 - HaPpY DaNcE! 2nd reading in a row below 205
    7/23 - 204.6 / 205.1 - Love the lows but the trend gives me insight that I’m making real progress
    7/24 - 204.5 / 204.8
    7/25 - 205.0 / 204.7 - Slight bump up on the daily WI due to pizza night but still trending downward!
    7/26 – 204.6 / 204.6
    7/27 – 204.6 / 204.5 - 14 day trend is below my WI this morning!
    Uncertain how the happy scale smoothing aspect of the trending works but I do like it based on change over previous 14 day instead of 7 day (longer view). This combo seems more consistent and less jumpy than the seven day moving average.
    7/28 – 205.2 / 204.7
    7/29 – 205.0 / 204.7
    7/30 – 205.6 / 204.9
    7/31 –


    204.x is slipping away. Hopefully this is just water retention from all the new exercise and long travel day. But then again food choices have not been exactly on point. One more day of progress in July! My goal today is to NOT let the trend go back into the 205.x range! Need another 204.x day. Ready to tackle this :)
