    You're welcome! I needed to remind myself, too. My brain tells me that I looked better the last time I got this close. It's trying not to let me enjoy what's been a pretty amazing run.

    Screw you, brain!

    Try my scale trick. Weigh yourself tonight, fully clothed, preferably after dinner and before you go to the bathroom. Be the heaviest you're going to be that day.

    Then weigh yourself as normal in the morning.

    Age 60, 5'4" and eating in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet. I eat back exercise calories, or I would be starving and cranky. Hubby does not like cranky me. Changed MFP setting 5/5/18 to 1/2# per week loss ~ within 10# of UGW, weight loss was stalled 3 months + was feeling hungry more often.
    MFP SW 195 ~ Goals: #1 = 150 / #2 = 145 [normal BMI] / #3 = maintain 140 - 145 / no goal dates ~ I get there when I get there
    Thrilled with my 2/15/18 annual physical: BP 110/68, pulse 64 and BMI 26.14 :star:

    My digital scale only has 1/2# increments, and I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. Weigh first thing in morning / comments reflect prior day.
