    STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP: Starting weight 280s and joined MFP January 2010. I've been here on and off for years but this time it's different. I am determined. This is by far the best program.

    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT:268.6

    Sept. 3: 266.8
    Sept. 10: 263.6
    Sept. 17: 263.0
    Sept. 24: 264.4

    SEPTEMBER GOAL: 6 lb. loss
    SEPTEMBER ACTUAL: -2.4 Much smaller loss than I wanted but at least I'm headed in the right direction.

    OCT. 1:
    OCT. 8: 260.6
    OCT. 15: 262.6 - pure carelessness on my part. New week, new attitude!
    OCT. 22: 265.2 - this is the most emotionally draining experience I've ever had. My coping skills are sorely lacking and if this keeps up my challenge weight will be higher than my starting weight. I wasn't going to weigh in but that doesn't make me any lighter. :(
    OCT. 29: 262.4 - up a little from yesterday but less than last week.

    OCTOBER GOAL: 6 lb. loss
    OCTOBER ACTUAL: -2.2

    NOV. 5: 265.0 - and I'm right back up there. I'm so angry at myself and tired of the repeated failures. It's my own fault. Time to let it go and move forward.
    NOV. 12: 264.4 - Right direction but not enough. Better times ahead.
    NOV. 19: 269.4 - I discovered my scale is 3 lbs. off so in the interest of honesty and proper posting I'm showing my correct weight. I didn't have a 5 lb. weight gain but I did gain 2 lbs. A gain is a gain is a gain. Boo! >:)
    NOV. 26: 272.2 - I am at a place where I strongly dislike the holidays. And after the holidays what will my excuse be? I have no idea but I have to figure this out; this is so depressing.

    NOVEMBER GOAL: 6 lb. loss
    NOVEMBER ACTUAL: UGH! 4.2 gain :(

    DEC. 3: 269.8
    DEC. 10:
    DEC. 17:
    DEC. 24:
    DEC. 31:

    DECEMBER GOAL: 6 lb. loss
    WEEK TO WEEK LOSS: -2.2
    DECEMBER ACTUAL:
    TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE SEASON:

    Don't let it bring you down @pizzafruit. Is this a on day weigh in or a trend for the week? If it is one day, try again the next few days and see if it moderates. If it's a trend, try to learn from it and keep moving hour your journey. I got a little bummed when I was up eight or nine pounds over a few days, but I also recognized I was eating a lot more salt than normal. Slowly and steadily over the next six to eight days, it kept coming back down. Acknowledge the number and move on.

    We can do this!

    NOV. 01: 177.6
    NOV. 05: 177.2 Lots of travel this week. Oh no!
    NOV. 12: 177.6 Better than expected. I actually went up drastically earlier in the week after 5 days of travel (I hit over 180), so I am relieved it is working it’s way back down. Have a great week everyone!
    NOV. 19: 178.6 I am not proud but it is due to yet more traveling. From here to the New Year I will be doing lots of it. I enjoy it, but hate the affects of restaurant dining.
    NOV. 26: [limegreen]180.4[/color=limegreen] Thankgiving dinner feast was yesterday for our family. Then, weigh today. Ugg. I actually ate way less than the old days, but still ended up quite bloated. Caved for the pecan pie which is never good. Next week will be a huge improvement.
    NOV. 30: 178.1 A small loss since the 26th, but a bad month overall. Ugg.

    NOVEMBER GOAL : 159.9
    NOVEMBER ACTUAL: 178.1
    ………………………………TOTAL GAIN IN NOV: 0.9 lbs

    DEC. 01: 178.0 Late December will be very difficult with all the social gatherings, baking and receiving baked goods, the Feasts and the restaurants while doing the out-of-town shopping. However, today is only December 1st and I am going to do my best to make these first couple of weeks count and help neutralize my overall stats for the month. A joyous time of year, but lets all enjoy it in good health.
    DEC. 03: 178.4 A small bounce due to my Grandson’s first birthday party. I managed to be more mindful of my portions but enjoyed my day. More carbs and calories that are normal to my plan, and very little water but overall a success in my attitude about the food.

    DECEMBER GOAL: 143
    DECEMBER ACTUAL:

    WEIGHT LOST THIS WEEK: Scale says UP 10.0 pounds? If looking at ten-day average, only 0.2 pounds. Is this just a blip? I sure hope so. Ten pound gain in a week is unrealistic and totally unsustainable.


    CHALLENGE WEIGHT LOSS GOAL: 6.4 pounds
    ACTUAL WEIGHT LOSS FOR CHALLENGE: The exact opposite - gained 6.0 pounds. The only good news is my ten day average weight is down 1.4 pounds since the beginning of the challenge). Can you tell I'm trying to be positive about gaining ten freakin' pounds in seven damn days?

    From the last twelve months; you can see the loss:
    myufnv0pd1fp.png

    Looking just at the past six months, I can almost imagine seeing a downward trend:

    The last three months looks kind of flat, but with spikes:

    @Cloverdoll - I was interested in that, too!

    I can get a graph from MFP. It does not look exactly like the graph @mtaratoot posted (it's weight; no trend line), but it might be close enough for you as a start. On the PC version of MFP, go to:
    Reports (in top menu bar) > choose a report (Weight) > Choose Reporting Period (Last Year, Last 180 Days, etc.)

    @mtaratoot how do you get the graphs?

    I use a website at www.trendweight.com. It's set up to use with a Fitbit scale, but I ain't got one of those. So instead I have to first visit www.fitbit.com/weight and enter my weight. Kind of annoying, but I like the graph on Trendweight.

    For whatever it's worth, I can do the same thing with ANY amount of data from within an Excel spreadsheet. For that one, I just graph each day's weight and the average of the ten previous entries. With Trendweight, you can also have it interpolate points in between actual measurements. That's great for when I miss a day or two traveling. With my spreadsheet, it's just straight up the last ten measurements irrespective of how long it took to log them. Another nice thing is if you zoom in to three months, you get a projection based on your trend.

    Here's what my spreadsheet graph looks like. This one happens to be pretty much the year to date. Note it just has the raw measurements (blue diamonds), a ten-day moving average (green line) and a long term trend (black straight line) that is a simple linear regression of all the data. I am happy it looks like it's going downhill from left to right :) I am not as pleased with the individual readings the last six times I hopped on the scale. My food diary explains most of it, so there's one person who can make this go back the way I want, and we all know who that is, and it ain't my fairy godmother :wink:

    No matter how you do it, the long term view helps you see that maybe you are on a successful trend rather than get sidetracked by "today's" number. Or in my case, this week's numbers. I fully expect to see an extended sine wave of weight over time. My only dig right now is that it's a few pounds over where I'd like to see that long term. Note to self: read the previous paragraph and do what you know need to be done :)
