    Highest weight: 293 (1/28/22)
    Current weight: 179.4
    February weight lost so far: -

    February 1—178 (A new short month is upon us. Looking forward to firmly establishing myself in the 170's this month and continuing to make progress towards my fitness goals.)
    February 2—178.4 (Had lots of fun exercising yesterday - shadow boxing, indoor cycling and upper body strength. It's cold so I'm finding fun ways to exercise indoors.)
    February 3—179.2 (Got a new PR on my 45 minute Peloton ride yesterday. We had a delicious steak dinner and I had a relaxing night. Only one more day of bad cold until the dog and I will resume our outdoor walks.)
    February 4—179.6 (The weekend is almost here... looking forward to the mental break. I am juggling cycling, strength and boxing programs and wanting to do it all so having more time for exercise is very exciting to me.)
    February 5—179.8 (Up at 5 am to crush my long ride of the week. 75 minutes done and ready to get into the day.)
    February 6—178.6 (Off to snowshoe in Kananaskis today. Warm weather is back and the mountains are calling.)
    February 7—181.6 (Had a fabulous weekend... Monday morning always comes so quickly. The weather is divine, most of our snow has melted, and the sun is out. Looking forward to a lunch time walk as I have a heavy bloated feeling in my stomach this morning.)
    February 8—181 (Husband made beef ribs on the BBQ last night - he is a charcoal grill master. The portion size on ribs to keep calories reasonable is very low, but I enjoyed my serving. I've had many moments in the last few weeks where I think back to old me and I have no idea how many calories I was eating, but it must have been a lot! Knowledge is power for me.)
    February 9—180.4 (Tired in the mornings so I've been exercising more at night which is harder on me, but I'm getting it done. We have dinner out with friends tonight so I have the meal pre-logged and I'm planning a maintenance day.)
    February 10-177.8 (Had a lovely supper out last night and stuck to my pre-tracked plan. Just focused on getting my 10K steps and got to bed when we got home from supper. Got up at 5 a.m. this morning to get my Peloton ride in since we're out again tonight.)
    February 11-178 (Got up early to ride before work and got a new PR on my 60 minute ride. Busy work day so far. Just wrapping up and need to back as we're off to Banff to meet out-of-town family for supper.)
    February 12-176.2 (Had a great time in Banff with family. Had supper out that we walked to and from. Stayed up later than normal. Breakfast and a snowshoe this morning before returning home. Now about to go out again to take my Mom into Calgary for a one night staycation.)
    February 13-179.6 (Had fun with Mom and my husband in Calgary. Picked the healthier of the meal options available but there was dessert and wine so I did go over my calories. Enjoy Superbowl today everyone!)
    February 14-180.4 (Between yesterday and today I did a lot of strength so I'm sore now. Night in to celebrate with my sweetie. His birthday is also in two days and then we will be mostly back to normal here.)
    February 15-181 (Had a loving Valentine's Day celebration. Got my Peloton ride in before work as we are busy tonight with appointments and phone calls.)
    February 16-180 (Today was my husband's birthday. I got a Peloton ride in and then I went out to get him breakfast before work. We had a nice sunshine filled walk at lunch and I took him to a fun restaurant in downtown Calgary for supper. The week of events is almost coming to a close!)
    February 17-179.8 (Not a skier but figured tubing down Lake Louise was our speed so off to do that today.)
    February 18-180.2 (Was back at work for one day today and now it's onto a three day long weekend as it's a holiday here in Alberta on Monday. The weather has turned cold again but the hubby and I will still ensure we find ways to be active.)
    February 19-180.2 (Have a long list of stuff I am doing today - some social stuff, some errands, some outdoor time/exercise. Time to get to it!)
    February 20-181.6 (The snow has come back. There is a lot of it outside waiting for me to shovel. Plans for today include that, a movie, the possible purchase of a road bike, and a Peloton ride.)
    February 21-180.6 (Had fun yesterday at a movie out. Also bought a gravel bike like I thought so I'm ready to keep up to my husband in the spring. I rode the Peloton for 60 minutes last night. Feeling sore today but want to get a strength day in.)
    February 22-179.4 (Back at work today. Life feels busier lately so I'm trying to ensure I'm planning ahead as best I can. I have my dad coming to stay with us for 10 days in March so I'll need to get some stuff done before then. Riding the Peloton on my lunch break.)

    Hi I’m Leah 😊

    I’ll be 51 in March. I lost 65 lbs. about 10 years ago on Weight Watchers but have gained a lot back.

    The last year brought some personal issues as well which have really thrown me for a loop. Struggling with some depression...slow and steady weight gain NOT HELPFUL lol

    I’m right now in physical therapy trying to resolve several overuse injuries I’ve acquired from many years of running. I think I need a new favorite workout.


    2022 goals:

    -Find an activity that won’t put me back in pain.
    -Lose 25 pounds 🎉
    -Lift the depression and be “me” again 😊



    Daily Goals:

    -Follow my morning routine
    -Drink enough water
    -Take my supplements
    -PLAN AND LOG
    -30 minutes planned activity
    -Eat between 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. (intermittent fasting 16/8)

    Current weight: 180

    February 21- 180

    February 22- Did not weigh today but will tomorrow. Hit the daily goals except exercise. Seeing an ortho doc tomorrow to address chronic leg pain- any sustained activity brings the pain. Sitting, driving, standing, sleeping brings the pain. Can’t wait to get some answers. About to eat my egg roll bowl for dinner and shut down the kitchen for the night 👍🏻

    February 21- 216.4- I’m joining late. I tried on bridesmaid dresses yesterday and it didn’t go well so it’s time to get back on track!
    February 22- 213.2 - no way is this accurate. I think my weigh in yesterday was off since I barely slept and then yesterday I had a salad for lunch and went to bed after work without dinner since I was so tired.

    ♥️❤️February Challenge❤️♥️

    Hi! Excited to participate in another challenge! I’ve kept off 7 pounds so far after starting these challenges in October. I’m planning to work out every work day for 45 minutes, restrict eating out for the weekend, log and drink 8 glasses of water daily.

    Highest weight: 165
    Month start weight: 155
    February weight lost so far: 1

    February 1 - 155 (home cooked/ ran 45 m)
    February 2 - 156 (home cooked/ ran 45 m)
    February 3 - 156 (home cooked/ ran 45 m)
    February 4 - 156 (home cooked)
    February 5 - 156 (went out)
    February 6 - 155 (went out)
    February 7 - 155 (home cooked, ran 45 m)
    February 8 - 154 (home cooked, ran 45 m)
    February 9 - 154 (home cooked, ran 45 m)
    February 10 - 154 (home cooked, ran 45 m)
    February 11 - 154 (went out, walked 45 m)
    February 12 - 155 (went out)
    February 13 - 156 (went out)
    February 14 - 156 (home cooked/ walked 15 m)
    February 15 - 156 (went out/ walked 45 m)
    February 16 - 155 (home cooked/ jogged/walked 45 m)
    February 17 - 154 (home cooked, ran 45 m)
    February 18 - 153 (home cooked/ walked 30 m)
    February 19 - 153 (went out)
    February 20 - 155 (went out)
    February 21 - 156 (home cooked/ ran 45 m)
    February 22 - 155 (home cooked/ran 45 m)
    February 23 - 154 (home cooked/ran 45 m)

    Super close to 153 again! Definitely going to manage my weekend food more so I stop undoing my progress so much. I’m going to focus on eating half of the restaurant food, see how that does.

    I am so sorry about the loss of your sister. I lost my brother Dec 1st and I am still not okay most days. It may take awhile to come to terms with the loss (if ever). I find peace in knowing he is no longer suffering and that, like your sister, it came fast. Many prayers to you and your family at this time.

    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.

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s

    Starting Weight (from January 31st): 197.0
    Goal: 192.0 (Five lb Loss)


    **************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME**************************

    02/01…...197.0…..(Trend Weight 195.1)….. Pro: No change. There’s that! Con: Only 28 days to get something done!

    02/02.…..197.4…..(Trend Weight 195.3)….. Meals good. Snacks bad. No TMI and exercise ziltch but the renovation is moving along, although slowly.

    02/03.…..195.8…..(Trend Weight 195.4}….. No better on the exercise due to the restrictions, but meals were much better planned. Quantities much better too. Pushing water today as tonight’s homemade Mexican food will likely be high in sodium.

    02/04.…..196.4…..(Trend Weight 195.5)….. Sodium from the Mexican I presume because otherwise the day was not bad. I did hit a record low on calories burned, miles walked and steps according to my fitbit. Fitness makes a big difference!

    02/05.…..196.4…..(Trend Weight 195.6)….. Full-on BINGE last night. Probably the worst I’ve ever experienced. I don’t even know what triggered it. Nothing showed up on the scale yet this morning, but I know it’s coming…..

    02/06.…..194.6…..(Trend Weight 195.5)….. This is the first time in awhile (I only checked records back to 3 weeks) that my trend weight has went down. Thrilled because that means that something is really happening! A nice drop on the scale this morning too. I’m surprised that the binge hasn’t shown up yet. Maybe I’ll luck out on this one. No matter! I’m running with it. It makes me feel encouraged today.

    02/07.…..195.4…..(Trend Weight 195.5)….. I had a very good day yesterday. Dietary was on point. More steps and activity than I’ve been able to get lately. The uptick is likely from a few days ago but I’m not worried since I’ve been doing well since then.

    02/08.…..193.4…..(Trend Weight 195.3)….. Three squares and some sugar-free candy for a snack. Upped the steps to 8700 but calorie burn was about the same as the days prior. This is a whoosh.

    02/09.…..193.4…..(Trend Weight 195.1)….. Holding steady and happy for that. I don’t expect loss everyday, so no gain is good and the path I’m on is the right one.

    02/10.…..196.0…..(Trend Weight 195.2)….. A good day, but pizza for dinner shocked my scale this morning. It is ridiculous how fast the scale flies up! It was very salty tasting so I will push water today.

    02/11.…..194.8…..(Trend Weight 195.1)….. An okay day yesterday reflected better on the scale. Doctor appointments today for son & I for diabetes. Also for heart for me. They are going to send me to a heart and vascular center I guess. It doesn’t pay to flunk two EKG’s. They were supposed to do it late last fall but had trouble with insurance. Then I let it go due to all the holidays and then my brother’s death. Time to get things right with my heart now. I’ve gotten to the point where I am a little afraid to even exercise with all the sinking and fluttering I am feeling. Need answers.

    02/12.…..197.8…..(Trend Weight 195.4)….. Fasted until 3:00 for doctor appointment/bloodwork. Then subway and cake. Cake twice. Did I take advantage of the fact I won’t have glucose checked by doctor for another 3 months? Probably. Regrets today.

    02/13.…..197.4…..(Trend Weight 195.6)….. I was so sick last night from all of this weeks bad choices. Pizza, Subway, Cake etc. All too rich. My body could not get enough water yesterday as it tried to flush everything out to save this diabetic from a hospital trip. My sugar read 438 an hour after my medication. I’m smarter than this. I just need to win this staring competition with my diabetes. I will not blink today!

    02/14.…..197.6…..(Trend Weight 195.8)….. A great day yesterday which I am disappointed did not reflect on the scale. Over 14,000 steps, over 6 miles and 3047 calories burned overall including my normal expenditure. Diet was light and on-point. No cheats. The scale is playing games with me but I know if I stay on point it will eventually have to be honest. I was proud of yesterday. The numbers were all in hard work cleaning out master bdrm to get new bedroom set and that was a back and forth chore. But I worked really hard! Going thru lots of clothes today too. No point in putting back in things I’m not wearing or no longer like. I know I had some dietary cheats this week that are probably reflecting on the scale today. So today I pay the piper and hope for a better tomorrow.

    02/15……196.0…..(Trend Weight 195.8)….. Another good day yesterday and finally the scale is cooperating. Down 1.6 today. My choices and hard work are paying off. I’m still working on the bedroom project. Lots to go thru. Also, I’ve been using that room as storage during the renovations for lots of living room décor so there is a lot to get thru. New wall and archway is still being built and finished. It’s looking good although the mess is horrid! Drywall dust is the worst! It gets everywhere!

    02/16……194.4…..(Trend Weight 195.7)….. This is a couple of good days in a row of diet and movement finally showing up in a bigger better way. Yesterday was another very good day on both fronts until…..that late night bagel (Starving!) with honey butter on it and the handful of jolly ranchers (couple hundred calories?). Glad I didn’t sabotage the scale with it, unless it shows up later……To be continued.

    02/17.…..196.0…..(Trend Weight 195.7)….. Up & Down by about a pound and a half over and over. It’s getting annoying. Diet on point all day. A little less movement than the prior couple of days but still not too bad. I’m thinking it’s those jolly ranchers from the other day. But still…..that is a big jump on the scale!

    02/18.…..194.2…..(Trend Weight 195.6)….. Well, after what appeared to be a very serious house fire filled with smoke I found out that it was my well pump that burned up. Smoke got into the cold air register making the smoke get transferred to all 3 floors. Breathing was difficult but it was obvious it was something I could shut down at it’s electrical box. Now, no water until God Himself know. Rural area here. Limited resources. Need a 1.5 HP jet deep well pump with dual inlet. Can’t seem to find one anywhere in America. I would like new, but I can’t even find one used. House size requires no less than that. And the well man (only one in my town) is not sure he knows how to even install this type. I have no idea what I am going to do at this point. Smdh. No answers.

    02/19.…..194.4…..(Trend Weight 195.4)….. I just need water. To drink, to bathe, to do dishes, to do laundry, to wash my hands! No answers. Where are my husband and brother when you need them? Oh, that’s right. They are in heaven. Maybe God will help then. Prayers requested please.
    02/20.…..196.0…..(Trend Weight 195.5)….. The up & down of the 1.5 pounds is really getting annoying! Great quantities yesterday. Steps & movement back up again. No snacks whatsoever. I think maybe it was the choices even though I am sure they were all within proper calorie levels. Gotta trust & move forward I guess.
    02/21.…..196.0…..(Trend Weight 195.6)….. A better week for sure but the renovations are still limiting my ability to exercise or get in enough movement, as well as my privacy. My short term goal is to hit the 180’s again and then hang on for dear life. I am picturing the man from “Up” holding on to those balloons. I need to get moving, hang on for dear life but enjoy the ride! Oh, and I need to keep promises….even to myself.

    02/22.…..197.6…..(Trend Weight 195.8)….. The well company never showed up for the appointment and never answered multiple calls. Pretty typical in my rural area. Not too many skilled trades like to travel to the multiple small towns that need service. My handyman put in a call to another company who said they would try to come today but we are in the midst of a winter storm warning with freezing rain and snow mix. I don’t know if they will come in this weather. Cortisol and stress eating and drinking last night (chocolate milk). The scale knows all your secrets.

    02/23.…..196.4…..(Trend Weight 195.8)….. Very low calorie burn yesterday but the diet was better. The other well company showed up bright & early this morning. This will cost way more than I planned and they are trying to figure out if a new type of pump (vertical) jet pump will fit in the space as they feel that will be more efficient than the horizontal pump that I have right now. They will call me later. Hopefully all will go well and they can get me on their schedule soon. Jury duty, however, tomorrow and Friday unless the evening call to the court house tells me the trial is off. Life is a tangled ball of yarn right now but it sounds like the knots are closer to being out. Continue prayers please and thanks to everyone for the well wishes.

    February 21- 216.4- I’m joining late. I tried on bridesmaid dresses yesterday and it didn’t go well so it’s time to get back on track!
    February 22- 213.2 - no way is this accurate. I think my weigh in yesterday was off since I barely slept and then yesterday I had a salad for lunch and went to bed after work without dinner since I was so tired.
    February 23- 211.6- gotta love the first week woosh

    February weight lost so far: lb.

    February 1—157.4 lbs
    February 2—157.4 lbs
    February 3—159.4 lbs. I had too many Carbs yesterday and went over calories by a couple hundred. It was a co-workers birthday celebration and I had a piece of the chocolate cheesecake I got for her. Today 1 did 210 minutes on my Elliptical for 14.6 miles. A bit shorter today as I have someone I need to meet up with. May do a bit more later on. And I did another 120 minutes for 8.5 miles. So the day was 5 1/2 hours for 23.1 miles.
    February 4—158.4 lbs
    February 5—157.4 lbs
    February 6—158.4 lbs Probably from eating my dinner so late after getting off work. :-( Did 190 minutes on my Elliptical today.

    February 8—159.4 lbs :-( Did 280 minutes on the Elliptical for 18.14 miles
    February 9—159.8 lbs
    February 10-157.6 lbs
    February 11-156.4 lbs
    February 12-156.4 lbs. Did 300 minutes on my Elliptical today for 18.5 miles. Been crazy long days at work on 2/9-2/11. 15-18 hour days!! Come home, shower and go to bed and backup at 5 AM and do it all over again. I really needed this weekend off! Got a set of new scrubs on Sunday 2/6. Size SMALL! Others I ordered online and they came this past Thursday. Started with 2XL to LARGE and now SMALL! Only 1.4 lbs away from the 100 lb weight loss mark.
    February 13-156.4 lbs. Did my Elliptical 200 minutes for 13.19 miles.
    February 14- 156.4 lbs.
    February 15- 156.4 lbs Same weight for 5 days Good thing too because I ate some carbs yesterday that I shouldn't have. Wasn't even hungry and they weren't even worth the calories/carbs. (People brought in sweets for Valentine's Day) And afterwards I felt mentally horrible for doing it! So I did my Elliptical today for 301 minutes for 20.02 miles. Just had to get the 20 mile mark!
    February 16- 156.4 lbs Still same weight the sixth day. :-(
    February 17- 155.4 lbs! New low and 99.6 lbs off! Just this close __ to the hundred mark! My day off but no exercise today. My sister is in the hospital 2 hours away from me. And being the nurse in the family, it is serious and I went to decipher what is going on and back as I work Friday and Saturday.
    February 18-155.4 lbs
    February 19-156.4 lbs
    February 20-157.6 lbs Not good, off the rails a bit. Did 310 minutes on my Elliptical today for 20.16 miles. I turned to unnecessary food.
    February 21-158.6 lbs
    February 22-159.4 lbs. My sister passed away yesterday morning. I'm glad she didn't linger on and on.

    February 23-160.6 lbs :-(

    My goals, which haven't changed from last month, include (from most difficult to the easiest)
    🚦 Getting started
    🥤 Drinking more water than diet soda
    🥅 Staying within my calorie limits
    📚☕ Making sure I get some “me time”
    😅🚶‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♀️ Exercising daily (at least 20 minutes total - not always an accurate time since I don't have a fitness watch. I use my phone, and I'm not allowed to have my phone with me during the day at work, so this category won't get a "thumbs up" unless I'm sure I've hit that 20 minute mark)
    📔 Tracking every meal
    ⚖️ Weighing daily is a given for me, so this will be the easiest one for me. I'm hoping to make it into the 180s by the end of February, and stay out of the 190s.

    Highest Weight: Somewhere between 227-230... I don't know. I avoided the scale.
    Return to MFP after ~ 5-6 year absence (June 11, 2020) = 216.9
    Final weight (January 31, 2022) = 193.2 (+1.6 from my January starting weight :disappointed: )
    Starting weight for this challenge (February 1, 2022) = 194.2

    🚦 Ready... set.... GO!
    01/31/2022 - ⚖️ 193.2
    02/01/2022 – ⚖️ 194.2 (+1.0 from yesterday/+0.0 from first day of current month/-22.7 from rejoining MFP) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔 - Eating stress and emotions again... Not good.
    02/02/2022 – ⚖️ 195.4 (+1.2 / +1.2 / -22.5) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/03/2022 – ⚖️ 195.2 (-0.2 / +1.0 / -22.7) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/04/2022 ¬ ⚖️ 196.2 (+1.0 / +2.0 / -20.7) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/05/2022 – ⚖️ 195.2 (-1.0 / +1.0 / -21.7) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/06/2022 – ⚖️ 196.6 (+1.4 / +2.4/ -20.3) - 😅🚴🏻‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/07/2022 – ⚖️ 197.8 (+1.2 / +3.6/ -19.1) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔 - Sigh... BMI is back into obese range. I do have to say that, when I lost the weight I lost, people would tell me "Oh, I bet you feel so much better." I'd reply, "No, not really... I don't feel like anything's changed." Well, let me tell you, going the other way? I can definitely feel the change and it's not good.
    02/08/2022 – ⚖️197.5 (-0.3/+3.3/-19.4) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/09/2022 – ⚖️198.5 (+1.0/+4.3/-18.4) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔🥅
    02/10/2022 – ⚖️195.2 (-3.3/+1.0/-21.7) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔🥅
    02/11/2022 – ⚖️193.5 (-1.7/-0.7/-23.4) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/12/2022 – ⚖️194.2 (+0.7/-0.0/-22.7) - 📚☕📔
    02/13/2022 – ⚖️193.9 (-0.3/-0.3/-23.0) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/14/2022 – ⚖️194.4 (+0.2/+0.2/-22.5) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔 (Do I get extra credit for hoofing it in heels to the Post Office and back to work with time to heat and eat my lunch? I know it's only about 3/4 mile round-trip, but... heels! Hahaha!) - back to choosing badly at dinner and it wasn't even that good. :(
    02/15/2022 – ⚖️194.4 (+0.0/+0.2/-22.5) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/16/2022 – ⚖️194.8 (+0.4/+0.6/-22.1) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/17/2022 – ⚖️195.4 (+1.4/+1.6/-21.5) -
    02/18/2022 – ⚖️196.4 (+2.4/+2.6/-20.5) - 🚶‍♀️📔
    02/19/2022 – ⚖️195.4 (+1.4/+1.6/-21.5) -🚶‍♀️📚☕
    02/20/2022 – ⚖️195.4 (+0.0/+1.6/-21.5) - 📔
    02/21/2022 – ⚖️197.4 (+2.0/+3.6/-28.5) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕ - what a crappy day - car troubles (not mine this time, but was super worried that it was going to cost 1000s to fix - didn't track anything for dinner, but don't remember eating dinner)
    02/22/2022 – ⚖️196.4 (-1.0/+2.6/-29.5) - 📚☕ - another crap day that started with my daughter running into my room, yelling, "MOM! Get up! It's 6:30!" - not sure what scared me more, the initial "MOM!" or that it was 6:30. I catch my bus at 6. So... I drove to work. Waited to hear something about the car to finally get the word that it was fixed, a new motor wasn't necessary. Good news. But the way I was awakened really effed up my day, so I was pretty zombie like. Didn't track a thing.
    02/23/2022 – ⚖️196.8 (-0.4/+3.0/-29.1) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔 - I got nuthin'.....
