    Highest weight: 234
    Current weight: 208.9

    February weight lost so far: up 3.3 pounds

    February 2—205.8… shoveled snow
    February 3—207.2…shoveled more snow
    February 4—206.6.. 🌟
    February 5—206.5…👍
    ❤️February 6—206.3… slow and steady
    February 7—205.5! The streak has begun!
    Yesterday I hit all of my goals including eating at/under my calories. Feeling tired, but fabulous! Happy Monday Friends!
    February 8—206.2… gotta start a new streak today. It’s so hard to stay at or under calories.
    I consistently hit 5 of my 6 goals… but not eating at or under calories… but I am determined to do it!

    February 9—205.6… pleasantly surprised this morning. 💃🏻 Maybe it was the new workout routine.💪. Getting the streak going today!

    February 10– 205.7… today the streak starts! 😄 “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again”
    Happy to be holding steady.

    February 11— 205.8 … today starts the streak! 🥰 Hit 5 out of 6 goals yesterday.

    February 12— 205.7
    February 13— 207.2
    February 14— 207.2 ate way too much at our Super Bowl small get together. Glad to have maintained for now. Have a 75 minute walking tour today at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with my daughter. Currently it’s -3 degrees outside, but it will get up to 20 degrees today. Multiple layers is the key!
    ❤️❤️HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!❤️❤️

    February 15– 207.6. Walked 4.9 miles yesterday, but no matter how hard I try, I simply can’t out walk what I eat. 🥰 Back to basics. U of M is beautiful. My daughter is going to have a tough decision, but we have 1 more college visit on Thursday… Ferris University in Big Rapids. It may snow 3-5 inches… so we may have to reschedule.

    February 16-🎂 207.7
    February 17—209.2
    February 18—208.5
    February 19—209.3
    February 20—208.9
    I took 5 days off as kind of my reset. I weighed in everyday, but didn’t log calories, or workout regularly. I am now ready to get things moving back in the slow and steady downward motion.
    We’ll be visiting Ferris University on March 3rd. Happy Sunday friends!

    ♥️February 21– 209… but feeling fine! I hit all of my daily goals yesterday including not eating over my calories. Happy Monday!♥️

    February 22—208.7…slow and steady.
    February 23—209
    February 24—210… time to break this mental funk! I took a nice 15 minute walk with my dog… cold but sunny outside. I came in and did a 19 minute dance walk (Day 4 with Up to the Beat with Gina B) she’s my favorite! Now it’s time to get my house cleaned then prep some veggies.

    February 25–209.7… Got in my day 5 of exercising ( 10 minutes) now it’s time to shovel snow then off to work. HAPPY FRIDAY!

    February 26—208.8
    February 27—208.7
    February 28-

    Is it me or has February just FLOWN BY?
    It’s time to start our MARCH CHALLENGE!!
    I’ll get going on that now. Happy Sunday!!

    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 24- DNW
    February 25- 213- had a girls night and getting back into the groove. Hoping most will fall off because I didn’t think I did that bad.
    February 26- 211.4- I had a great day yesterday!
    February 27- 210.4 pleasantly surprised after a few drinks last night

Thank you Jill! My goal is 5 lbs for February. Welcome back everyone! JOIN US!

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 25-155 lbs!!!! :-) FINALLY!!!! 100 lbs lost! 200 minutes on my Elliptical for 13.65 miles. Did another 100 minutes later in the evening for 7 miles.
    February 26-155 lbs. So far 200 minutes on my Elliptical, for 13 miles. Planning on another 100 minutes session later today after babysitting 2 of my grandchildren this afternoon. Did a total of 326 minutes, for the day, on my Elliptical for 23 miles.

    February 27-156 lbs. Don't understand this with all the extra exercise the last few days! My calories were always way under daily too. Did 201 minutes on my Elliptical this AM for 13.6 miles. Plan to do another session later today.

    @Arc2Arc
    Completely understand! At times when I think about my weight number I start with a 2, then think "No. I'm not! I'm in the 100's now." Part of body dismophia. Takes awhile to get past it.

    February 1—205.6… Here we go!
    February 2—205.8… shoveled snow
    February 3—207.2…shoveled more snow
    February 4—206.6.. 🌟
    February 5—206.5…👍
    ❤️February 6—206.3… slow and steady
    February 7—205.5! The streak has begun!
    Yesterday I hit all of my goals including eating at/under my calories. Feeling tired, but fabulous! Happy Monday Friends!
    February 8—206.2… gotta start a new streak today. It’s so hard to stay at or under calories.
    I consistently hit 5 of my 6 goals… but not eating at or under calories… but I am determined to do it!

    February 9—205.6… pleasantly surprised this morning. 💃🏻 Maybe it was the new workout routine.💪. Getting the streak going today!

    February 10– 205.7… today the streak starts! 😄 “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again”
    Happy to be holding steady.

    February 11— 205.8 … today starts the streak! 🥰 Hit 5 out of 6 goals yesterday.

    February 12— 205.7
    February 13— 207.2
    February 14— 207.2 ate way too much at our Super Bowl small get together. Glad to have maintained for now. Have a 75 minute walking tour today at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with my daughter. Currently it’s -3 degrees outside, but it will get up to 20 degrees today. Multiple layers is the key!
    ❤️❤️HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!❤️❤️

    February 15– 207.6. Walked 4.9 miles yesterday, but no matter how hard I try, I simply can’t out walk what I eat. 🥰 Back to basics. U of M is beautiful. My daughter is going to have a tough decision, but we have 1 more college visit on Thursday… Ferris University in Big Rapids. It may snow 3-5 inches… so we may have to reschedule.

    February 16-🎂 207.7
    February 17—209.2
    February 18—208.5
    February 19—209.3
    February 20—208.9
    I took 5 days off as kind of my reset. I weighed in everyday, but didn’t log calories, or workout regularly. I am now ready to get things moving back in the slow and steady downward motion.
    We’ll be visiting Ferris University on March 3rd. Happy Sunday friends!

    ♥️February 21– 209… but feeling fine! I hit all of my daily goals yesterday including not eating over my calories. Happy Monday!♥️

    February 22—208.7…slow and steady.
    February 23—209
    February 24—210… time to break this mental funk! I took a nice 15 minute walk with my dog… cold but sunny outside. I came in and did a 19 minute dance walk (Day 4 with Up to the Beat with Gina B) she’s my favorite! Now it’s time to get my house cleaned then prep some veggies.

    February 25–209.7… Got in my day 5 of exercising ( 10 minutes) now it’s time to shovel snow then off to work. HAPPY FRIDAY!

    February 26—208.8
    February 27—208.7
    February 28– 209.5

    February has been far from stellar for me, BUT… in looking at the BIG PICTURE… so far this year:

    ✔️2022 lost 3.7 pounds since January 1st… just under my goal of .5 pound loss each week

    ✔️Exercise Dancing 10 minutes on 6 out of 7 day average… and averaging daily 9,000 steps in the past 6 months.

    I am moving in the right direction overall.

    I look forward to seeing you all in the March Challenge. 🌱🍀🌷☘️

    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.

    02/24.…..198.0…..(Trend Weight 196.0)….. Alarming! Looking back, yesterday was actually a pretty good day. Not perfect but pretty good all around. I’m truly not sure what happened. I’ll see what the scale tomorrow brings. And Water…..I have water. The new company responded quickly. It was expensive and there is no doubt I will need a new well at some point, but I’m going to make this nearly $3000.00 spent count for awhile. Happy camper here. Jury duty was cancelled for today. I call tonight to find out if I have to report tomorrow. I hope not. I have a lot of catching up to do on cleaning!

    02/25.…..198.0…..(Trend Weight 196.2)….. Bad day yesterday all around. Jury duty this morning.

    02/26.…..196.2…..(Trend Weight 196.2)…… A better day yesterday all around. Now, just to keep it up!

    02/27.…..197.0…..(Trend Weight 196.4)…… No sleep last night. Late night mini-binges. No TMI this morning. I was not very patient or kind yesterday to anyone around me. I hope they will all forgive me. So much guilt today over my behavior. I am usually a very nice person and yesterday I was not fun to be around. I will do everything today to make it better for everyone.

    02/28.…..198.2…..(Trend Weight 196.5)…… It was actually a pretty good day yesterday. A light breakfast, no lunch, ½ bowl of chili for dinner (so filling!). I’m not sure why the large uptick. I did have a glass of milk. Activity level was moderate. Lots of company yesterday and reno still going on. It will be a busy week with company in from out of town until Monday. Congrats to all who achieved some progress on their goals. I’ll see you for the March challenge! 1.2 pound gain this round (all overnight). Otherwise It would have been a wash for me.

    Current weight: 177.2
    February weight lost so far: 0.8

    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.)
    February 23-176.4 (Planning to meet up with some MFP friends after work for a group Peloton ride. Will do my strength session at lunch.)
    February 24-177.2 (Day started early and it's going to be go go go! Taking my mom to a doctor's appointment over my lunch break and then I'll have to work later to make up for it. Going to pick up my new gravel bike and have sushi dinner with my husband after work. Doesn't feel like there will be enough hours in the day to fit in my exercise but I'll find a way!)
    February 25-176.6 (Kept my promise to myself and did my Peloton workout last night before bed. Felt amazing to make sure I fit it in. The weather is warming up so I'm looking forward to a walk in the sunshine at lunch. Another supper out with family tonight so I'll be doing either my strength or Peloton workout late again.)
    February 26-176 (Mini road trip and brunch with friends today. Likely a movie too. Also have to find time to fit in my exercise. Have a lovely day!)
    February 27-175.8 (Today is snowshoeing day. Hooray! The weather is much better and it will be great to spend time in nature.)
    February 28-177.2 (Spent all day outside and then came in and rode the Peloton for 60 minutes. It was a lovely way to spend my Sunday.)

    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)
    February 24 - 153 (home cooked/ walked 20 m)
    February 25 - 153 (home cooked/ ran 45 m)

    February 26 - 155 (went out)
    February 27 - 155 (went out)
    February 28 - 155 (home cooked)

    Ok! I consider this a small victory! Gained 2 instead of 3 by restricting how much I ate when I went out this weekend. Technically still the same weight I started as, but saw a 2 pound loss a fair amount this month! Just gotta keep mindfully eating!

    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 24- DNW
    February 25- 213- had a girls night and getting back into the groove. Hoping most will fall off because I didn’t think I did that bad.
    February 26- 211.4- I had a great day yesterday!
    February 27- 210.4 pleasantly surprised after a few drinks last night
    February 28- 210- had a great day with tracking food but 0 activity due to not feeling well. Bring on March

    Total feb loss: 6.4

    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/-19.5) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕
    02/22/2022 – ⚖️196.4 (-1.0/+2.6/-20.5) - 📚☕
    02/23/2022 – ⚖️196.8 (+0.4/+3.0/-20.1) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/24/2022 – ⚖️198.4 (+2.4/+4.2/-18.5) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔 - fixed some of the weight numbers after using a calculator. Math is not, nor has it ever been, my strong point.
    02/25/2022 – ⚖️198.0 (-0.4/+3.8/-18.9) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/26/2022 – ⚖️ weighed myself, but didn't write it down. It was probably about 198.8. - 🚶‍♀️- drove to Phoenix for a baby shower. Then to the ASU/BYU baseball game which was really *really* painful to watch (we got there middle of the 3rd and it was 9-0. Ended up 19-3 BYU). Wandered up and down one of the streets by ASU until my son got off work and then met him for dinner. He was in a foul mood due to the game so despite the best efforts of the girls and I, there wasn't much conversation. Drove home. And just crashed.
    02/27/2022 – ⚖️ 199.8 (don't feel like doing the math) - 🚶‍♀️📔 - didn't do much except laundry. Walked the dog twice, so that gave me my exercise. I've been in a foul mood myself the past few days, really peaking last night and today. Can't stop tearing up. On top of my other issues, I found out today that a friend passed away on Thursday, but because we were "just friends" not family and due to the workload and short staff, I can't have time off to go to the funeral.
    02/28/2022 - ⚖️ 200.2 - and there it is. Back into the 200 pound range. I'm so ashamed of myself right now. Ah well, I'm tracking today and will be joining the March challenge.

    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 7—159.4 lbs Ate too may Carbs last pm.
    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 :-(
    February 24-156.6 lbs Have 6 days off. Planning to get some exercise in each day. Maybe twice a days. So far today's Elliptical 180 minutes for 11.56 miles.
    February 25-155 lbs!!!! :-) FINALLY!!!! 100 lbs lost! 200 minutes on my Elliptical for 13.65 miles. Did another 100 minutes later in the evening for 7 miles.
    February 26-155 lbs. So far 200 minutes on my Elliptical, for 13 miles. Planning on another 100 minutes session later today after babysitting 2 of my grandchildren this afternoon. Did a total of 326 minutes, for the day, on my Elliptical for 23 miles.
    February 27-156 lbs. Don't understand this with all the extra exercise the last few days! My calories were always way under daily too. Did 201 minutes on my Elliptical this AM for 13.6 miles. Plan to do another session later today.

    February 28-155 lbs Did 2 Elliptical sessions today (211 minutes/16.63 miles & 113 minutes/9 miles) total 324 minutes for 25.63 miles. I'm a bit legalistic. I use my 3/1/22 AM weight as my end weight for February, since it's a reflection of what I did today.
