    Female, 5'4"
    Starting Weight: 135 lbs
    Goal Weight: 115 lbs - Met in late 2017

    I met my goal weight a few months ago. My new goal now is to stay around 115 average. I seem to be ranging lower around 112-114 lately. I love this group & enjoy the daily check ins. I enjoy following everyone else's progress & thanks to my OCD tendencies, I enjoy tracking my calories & daily weight.

    Goal This Round: Maintain 115 lbs Average

    01/28 • 112 • Dehydrated today. Played 3 sets of tennis. 1600 cal. 3 servings of alcohol
    01/29 • 110 • Wow, I can’t seem to stop losing weight. Ran 3 miles & lifted weights. 1150 cal. 3 servings of alcohol
    01/30 • 111 • Ran 3 miles. 1650 cal. 1 serving of alcohol
    01/31 • 112 • Ran 4 miles. 1450 cal. 2 servings of alcohol
    02/01 • 111 • Ran 3.5 miles & lifted weights. 1150 cal

    02/04 • 112 • Skiing all day. 1550. 3 servings of alcohol
    02/05 • 111 • Played 3 sets of tennis. 1700 cal. 2 servings of alcohol
    02/06 • 111 • My body seems to like a lower weight than my 115 goal. I’m not going to fight it. 1600 cal. 3 servings of alcohol

    Average: 111.3

    02/05 - 183.5 my first weight in in about a million years. This is disappointing but about where I thought I would be.
    02/06 -

    2/06 - 182.4 ran a 5K on the treadmill yesterday but also had some wine and a post-workout snack before dinner. Was 270 calories over my goal but did not count my work out calories.

    I have my calorie goal set at 1670 to start. I do not count my work out calories gained as I don't trust the MFP calories burned estimates.

    I logged my weight into MFP this morning and saw my history. I used to be very active here but have been away for over a year. I have gained 30 pounds since my lowest weight in 2012! In 2012 I had stopped drinking and was in marathon training and had lost about 20 pounds over 4 or 5 months. I loved how I felt and looked at the weight (154.2) and I want to get back there!

    So that's my goal! 154.2

    I am loving this challenge so far. I am ready for the Round 31!

    Good work everyone and thanks for sharing

    Day/Weight/Comment

    01/28: 216
    01/29: 216.4 ---Expected this rise. Yesterday was our 4th Sunday family gathering and also a time for everyone to celebrate my son's recent birthday, so it was ALL his favorites. And yes, needless to say, ALL high calorie stuff. :/
    01/30: 216 :sweat_smile: I was hoping down and not another increase.
    01/31: 216 ---Felt really bad yesterday evening so, I laid down early with no workout. Woke up this morning on a cleaning spree. I worked through breakfast but, made myself eat lunch. My fitbit showed I'd been in exercise mode for 8.5 hours. Now I'm exhausted and don't feel like working out, but at least my house is clean.
    02/01: 215.4 ???--- :weary: I don't know what I weigh. My scale has given me error messages and different weights 5 times ranging from 214.2 to 216.6. So, I'll go with the first number it gave me. Who knows what it will say tomorrow, but I'm comparing scales now online.
    02/02: ??????????? - Going to get a new scale.
    02/03: 217-- new scale :-1:
    02/04: 217.4 --- I kept the receipt and packaging, but this thing may end up thrown out the door. :angry:
    02/05: 217.2
    02/06: 216.6---my son put another battery in the old scale even though it wasn't giving the error code LO, and it seemed to help. So, this morning I weighed on both: new 216.6 old: 215.8. I'm going with the new because I'd rather go down than to fool myself in thinking I was already there. So, with all of that being said, I don't know how i made out this round :confused:

    More sweat now, less jiggle later

    2/4 221.6 struggled with cravings yesterday but managed to stay within my calorie goal. Hopefully I can control myself during the super bowl.
    2/5 223.6 I guess the Super Bowl cheating was a bad idea. No more big cheats allowed. Haha
    2/6 223 Off to a great start. I hope I can keep it up. I’ve been logging all my food and staying within calorie goal. I’ve also been making sure to reach 10,000 steps everyday. I’ve added about 3 days of strength training as wel. It’s been a while since I’ve tried and lost any weight so 7 lbs lighter feels great!! I’m so glad I started this challenge!

    I didn't do as well in January as I hoped. This process is really an exercise in patience.
    01/29: 155.5
    I went to a yoga class tonight that I found quite challenging. I'm proud of myself for doing pretty well, I'm mostly new to yoga.
    01/30: 154.5
    Likely be up again tomorrow, I had a big dinner out with all the sodium. But, I hiked and went for a run today so overall it was a good day for progress, it just won't show up on the scale right away, I'm sure.
    01/31: 156.5
    I felt like today was a good day, but I still went over my planned calories.
    02/01: 158.5
    Groan. TOM may be part of it. Gave in to doughnuts at work today after being sugar free most days in Jan, so tomorrow's weigh-in is going to be bad, too.

    Goal: keep active and less salt
    Day/Weight/Comment
    01/28 139.8lb absolutely stuffed myself on salty foods last night
    01/29 138.2 had no appetite yesterday, was very busy. Weight sure to bounce back up again. As long as it’s not in the 140’s!
    01/30 137.2 this is a nice surprise! Practiced last night, Sunday night we went out dancing for a couple hours.
    01/31 137.8 got in yoga, a run, and some dancing yesterday but also ate a lot, including more salt and sugar than i should.
    02/01 138 salt, why can’t I quit you? Going to dinner and a musical in another city tonight, so lots of sitting and sure to exceed food limits.
    02/02 137.2 Early appointments this morning, then worked out with a fitness specialist, ran despite the weather, and practiced yoga for an hour. Was feeling great until I fainted and hit my head super hard. Should have drank more water before all the activity!
    02/03 ?? honestly I forget my weight because never had time to record it. Went straight from work to ER where my husband was waiting for emergency appendectomy. Thank God he’s OK!
    02/04 135.8 not a real loss: didn’t eat or drink yesterday in the ER. Hubby back home and recovering but we haven’t had hardly any sleep. Not exercising yet- I’m still sore from my fall. Oh the bumps and bruises
    02/05 135.8
    02/06 137.4 stayed in the 130’s and lost a little, but definitely got off track. Looking forward to settling back into a healthy routine.

    Very grateful for the support and encouragement from this amazing group. :heart:
    See you all for Round 31!

    Day/Weight/Comment
    01/28 142.7 (over on sodium- Mexican restaurant- estimated logging- 60 min. elliptical- ate back all or more)
    01/29 141.4 (30 min elliptical, ate back all calories)
    01/30 141.2 (11 min elliptical; Body Pump Class: ate back all calories)
    01/31 142.9 (60 min elliptical; under calorie goal; higher sodium day, but not over)
    02/01 143.2 (Body Pump Class; over by 20 calories-1220 net- slightly over on sodium- maybe TOM weight too?)
    02/02 143.9 (50 min elliptical; at back most calories-weight gain is frustrating when in deficit- probably TOM)
    02/03 143.1 (50 min elliptical; ate back all calories; still no TOM, but probably why weight jumped up this week)
    02/04 144.5 (35 min elliptical; WAY over calories-like over 1000 over- TOM-gave in to serious cravings)
    02/05 148.1 no exercise; no tracking; ate alot. So after about a month of almost daily exercise and netting 1200 calories my weight can go up by so much and so quickly. So do I have to net 1200 for life to not gain? Frustrated. I know it's water retention mostly, but I want to eat what I want ONCE IN A WHILE without worry. Twice now I've had weight swings of 7 pounds within the same 10 day challenge. Do I need a low sodium diet?
    02/06 150.1 (Highest weight in a long time! no tracking , no exercise)

    Gain of 7.4 pounds this round. Will drink lots of water and get back on track with logging, exercise, and drinking water. This has to be mostly water because though I ate a lot, it's was only 3 days of eating over a 1200 calorie net

    No, you don't have to live on 1200 calories a day for life. I've been able to maintain under 115 lbs eating 1500 calories a day on average. I know it can be frustrating, but what I like to remind myself is that it's about the daily seemingly unimportant decisions. But consistently making them everyday is what leads to success.

    Round 30 Goal: Under 150

    I kept my goal of tracking and weighing in everyday in the last round. My goals for Round
    30 are to 1) exercise at least 4 days every week (so 6 workouts within the next 10 days).
    2) pack my meals 3) cook at least 2 vegetarian dinners"

    1/28 151.8
    1/29 "153.4, even though I stayed within my caloric intake, i think the late night snack
    may have bumped me up. I'm still down from when I started so not too upset"
    1/30 "155.4 I should not have eaten the pizza last night. I was over by a lot.
    Back on track today!"
    1/31 155.4 This is hard
    2/1 155.4
    2/2 157 I don't know what is going on with my body
    2/3 155.2
    2/4 153.2 OK, finally coming back to what I would expect. I can't give up
    2/5 153.6 This week I'm commiting to tracking every day. I will lose weight
    2/6 153.6 I did a run yesterday. Will hit the gym today and track

    5’0” 47yo female. Sw-106 Gw 103.2

    Day/Weight/Comment
    01/28; 106.0 - My Birthday - Didn't weigh in, had buffet lunch and spent the day riding in the car to/from grandmas. I have my meals planned for 1/29 and this board will help me stay accountable.
    01/29: 107.0 - I mean, I didn't want this number, but it is what it is and it reflects what I've been doing. eating too much crap, not focused and just beating myself up mentally. I'm ready for that to change. I want tomorrows number to be better. Surprising enough, last week I had a 104.6 number...so I know this is feasible for this challenge. Goal tomorrow is to be 106.x

    1/30: 105.4 - Woosh, there it is. High Fat yesterday, and the scale showed it. I will keep high fat again today as I just loved how it made me feel, satiated and not craving.

    1/31: 103.8 - Day 2 of intermittent fasting. Today I did One 4 hour eating window and wow, look at the results. My last meal was finished at 1230pm, so technically, If I'm not hungry, I can maybe make this an entire 24hour fast. I love the number on the scale. I'm in disbelief at how well checking in with this group has made me focus. I honestly expected this weight on day 10 instead of day 4. Macros ; Fat:55% Carb:25% Protein:15%

    2/1: 105.2 - Carb day yesterday, arund 130g so, i'm not shocked by this. Its still less then before and gives me motivation to do well today with Keto style eating and keeping carbs to a minimum. #noBarsTodayPeeps
    2/2: 105.8 - Still had around 130g carbs yesterday. I really didn't want to get on the scale. Also had chicken tenders with plenty of salt for supper. Trying to get the mind right. At least I'm still working out. I hope (plan) to be more compliant today.

    2/3 104.4 - Amazeballs, Motivation to eat healthy today just because of this number. #mindset Also, need to meal plan. OH, and I got a job offer and accepted it. Start date is Feb 12. YAY! SO relieved!

    Age - 63
    Height - 5'-6"
    Beginning weight - 250 lbs
    Current - 190 lbs
    Goal - 150 lbs

    I'm starting a bit late but since I record my weight daily, I will catch up. I started my journey to a healthier life June 2017 when I was told I was pre-diabetic. So far I have lost 60 lbs and incorporated regular exercise into my day. So, here goes:

    Day/Weight/Comment
    01/28 - 193.8 / I eat about 1400 calories a day; best thing ever is the MFP food diary
    01/29 - 192.6
    01/30 - 191.8
    01/31 - 190.6
    02/01 - 190.0
    02/02 - 190.0
    02/03 - 190.2 Guess I should not have eaten that extra cup of Broccoli Cheddar soup last night before bed. But I did walk my daily 3 miles this morning.
    02/04 - 190.0, Walked 3.3 miles this morning then did a little housework for exercise.
    02/05 - 191.0, walked 4.3 miles, didn't eat badly but did indulge with a Turkey and Swiss panini. Will do better tomorrow.
    02/06 - 190.0, walked again today for 4+ miles, took me an hour and half but was worth the time.

    Thank you for this round (my first to participate in). I will be continuing my efforts in improving my health through activity and eating a healthier diet. Good luck to you all.
