    January 1st - 181.4
    January 2nd -181.1 So glad to have my new digital scale so that I feel rewarded by "good" days. I am also happy with my decision to weigh every day, it makes me mindful every night that I will be weighing in the morning and affects my choices.
    January 3rd - 181.9
    January 4th - 181.7
    January 5th - 178.7
    January 6th - 182.5 Crazy how everything fluctuates. I couldn't believe yesterday, so weighed 5 times. Up 3.8 from yesterday, but I have skating on the docket for today. Perhaps I will discover a trend in something that I am doing, eating, or something that I am not eating with how it affects me.
    January 7th - 181.7
    January 8th - 183.0 - really don't get the gain this time, I was in really good numbers all week.
    January 9th - 182.2 - I seriously expect a really big loss soon. I am just sticking with it. I am working very long hours this week, maybe my body is holding on to it just in case.
    January 10th - 179.8 - not getting too excited, I see how I can be almost 4 pounds more the next day. Still, glad to be slightly under 180 at least for today : - )
    January 11th - 180.7
    January 12th - 182.4 - I was less disciplined in December and still lost weight, yet this month I am being so careful and am just not dropping weight. I have to stick with it.
    January 13th - 181.4
    January 14th - 181.7
    January 15th - 181.6
    January 16th - 180.3 - I have seen the 70s twice this month already, but not getting my hopes up just yet. Skating yesterday and again today. I work out every day no matter what, but skating seems to be the difference maker. Maybe because it is so fun and relieves me of stress at the same time as torching lots of calories. 16 days of discipline to lose a 1/2 of a pound is ridiculous.
    January 17th - 178.7 - Yay! 2 days of public skating makes such a difference. Wish that I could do it year round, it is the only thing that I enjoy for an entire hour.
    January 18th - 178.7 - No skating, so not even .1 of a pound. I did 30 minutes of Zumba yesterday and only managed to eat 1100 calories. Public skating is 3 days per week unless I drive to a different town. Lol, thinking about that!
    January 19th - 179.2
    January 20th - 180.7 - lack of sleep.
    January 21st - 180.7 - Up 2 pounds from the 18th. Even skated yesterday. I can't give up now though. Only 10 days until the end of the month. Hoping for a woosh. Very frustrated, not feeling like it is worth all of the effort today. Did 55 minutes of zumba. 4 days in the 70s this month, c'mon body!
    January 22nd - 180.9 - luckily I have skating today. .5 of a pound is not good enough for 22 days. Plateau?
    January 23rd - 178.9 - skating yesterday and again today, then none again until next week unless I can find a frozen pond while I am away for 5 days. I leave tomorrow and it is going to be a challenge with foodie friends cooking very high calorie foods. I was hoping to have had a bit of a cushion by this time in January so that I could enjoy myself on this trip, but I have had to be clawing for every increment of a pound.
    January 24th - 178.5 - result of ice skating yesterday. 7 days left in the month, 2 more opportunities for public skating before that. I won't be able to weigh in again until next Tuesday.
    January 25th -
    January 26th -
    January 27th -
    January 28th -
    January 29th - 178.6 - Not too bad! Glad to only have put on .1 of a pound, so much eating and drinking, birthday party, eating out. I was able to keep up my workouts. Only 2 days left of the month, 2 of those are skating days, so hoping to drop a bit more.
    January 30th - 177.3 - Yahoo! Skating today again too, hoping to end the month strong.
    January 31st -

    Running loss/gain for January - 4.1 loss for January

    December 2018 - Lost 2.4lbs 😃

    Original starting wgt: 253
    January starting weight: 178 (fluid retention)
    January goal: 170
    ❄Updating every day through January until completely back on track.

    •Monday Updates•📌
    1/01- 178 - Oh yeah, midnight eating and a little champagne. My weight is between 174 & 175 this is fluid.
    1/102 - 177.2
    1/03 - 175.8
    1/04 - 177.6 - Felt miserable all day yesterday with some type of weird allergy cold again. Exercised, ate dinner and went to bed later than usual. Now gut is upset. What the what?!
    1/05 -177.2 - Had no appetite most of the day yesterday, runny nose, gut in an uproar, whole 9 yards of misery. Took some cold medicine late afternoon and then proceeded to overeat cookies.😦
    1/06 - 178.2 - Still with the carb craziness!
    📌 1/07 - 177.2 - Coming back down. This "allergy cold" still hanging on. I will be staying under 20 grams of carbs today. (That should say net carbs.)
    1/08 - 174.4 - 18g net carbs, 16g net is the plan today.
    1/09 - 174.8 - I did better than planned yesterday, 19g carbs, 12g net. Today's plan is 16g/13g net.
    1/10 - 174 - 20g carbs, 17g net carbs.
    1/11- 172.8 - Yesterday 15g carbs, 12g net carbs.
    1/12 - 173.2 - Yesterday 29g carbs 23g net carbs
    1/13 - 175.2 - 21g carbs, 17g net carbs
    📌 1/14/ - 176.2 - 63g carbs, 57g net carbs - black truffle & olive oil kettle chips was the culprit. Did not want to resist them.😏
    1/15 - 173.2 - on track

    1/16 - 173.8 - on track - 45g carbs 19g net carbs. Since I've had a couple of days of eating something (nuts or those chips!) after my fasting hours began, I've changed my eating window to end a couple of hours later. It seems to be working, but my early weigh ins will read a higher number at the 12th-13th hr fasting point as opposed to the 15th-16th hour.

    1/17 - 173.2

    1/18 - 172.2 - Mmm, maybe I will see a new decade at the end of the month.

    After my post on the morning of the 18th, no Internet at home until the morning of the 23rd. I had a couple of high calorie days, a couple of high carb days. Mostly vegetables and nuts. Tomato soup one day, hot chocolate yesterday. A few days, junk carbs, cookie, chips, chocolate. The winter weather has been colder than it has been for a long time. Makes me want to eat!

    1/19 - 173.8
    1/20 - 173.8
    📌1/21 - 174.2
    1/22 - 174.2
    1/23 - 174.2
    1/24 - 173.6

    I’m ok with this. Remembering that I also lost the 5lbs of New Year’s bloat the first week.
    This month I also added in two days of strength training and my extreme Saturday Group Training so combined with yoga and cardio my body has actually changed A LOT this month.
    As long as I keep having NSVs and even if the scale moves slow, it’s still a success!

    Didn't weigh in on the 25th, life had me going everywhere. Haven't been able to hit the weights as much as I wanted this month but this midwest weather hasn't been very nice so I'll take what I've been able to do and push forth to next month.
