    12/01 - 184.6 - My personal forbidden carbs (cookies, tortilla chips, chocolate) causing the uptick.
    📌12/02 - DNW
    12/03 - 185.6 - Needing some elimination 😟 and more water than I've been thirsting for. Indoor heat is really dehydrating me. Gonna have to force it for a few days.
    12/04 - 185.6
    12/05- 185.4 - I REALLY need to force a breakthrough on my water consumption. Lately, I can't get past 80-96ozs. Yesterday was only 72ozs. A couple of times a year this happens. I need a gallon a day for about a week to rehydrate.

    December 03 - 158.4
    December 04 - 158.0
    December 05 - 156.8
    December 06 - 156.7 - Wow, almost on track to lose one pound this first week. Shouldn't jinx myself : - )
    December 07 - 156.9 - Upped my water.
    December 08 - 157.5 - Haha, all of that water : - P
    December 10 - 159.0 - Keeping up with my recommended body weight water 72-80 ounces, hope the weight gain goes away. I am not counting my coffee consumption, just pure water and herb tea.
    December 11 - 157.2 - Another 2250 ml of water, glad to see that the weight gain from upping the water went away.
    December 12 - 157.4 - 2000 ml of water. I don't think that the added water is long-term sustainable for me, but I am trying.
    December 13 - 157.6 - 2250ml of water again. I had hoped that the scale would go in the other direction once I got used to the extra water, but nope. Calories are still in check. Going to a party tonight, so will have to eat light during the day and get all of the water guzzling and peeing out of the way early too.
    December 14 - 158.5 - Nice holiday party, but gained one pound in one day. Hoping to be able to get rid of it, extra workouts today. Somehow managed 2250ml of water again, so that is 7 days.
    December 15 - 157.5 - 2240 of water. Not going to push it today. I have been drinking more of it during my workouts. Since I have upped it I seem to be thirstier, so I guess that I am getting used to it. All the more motivation to weigh less so that I don't have to drink so much water : - P I have been doing lemon water first thing in the morning along with upping my intake to the recommended amount.
    December 16 - 158.8 - I am taking fluctuations in stride more than I used to.
    December 17 - 158.9 - Hoping to get this back down soon.
    December 18 - 159.0 - And this is before I have even begun any holiday feasting. Definitely have been getting tired of the increase of water, but I have kept it up.
    December 19 - 159.5 - Up yet again. I have changed my diet over the last 12 days to include 1/2 brown rice (1g fibre) and 1/4 kidney beans (2g fibre) and upped my water intake. Maybe I have to wait it out.
    December 20 - 157.0 - I was low on water yesterday, only got 750ml in plus 2 coffees. I had a water bottle with me at work, but couldn't choke any down. Plus I was way to busy to have to go and find a washroom every 10 minutes. I didn't have to get up to pee at all during the night last night. Not the best way to lose 2 1/2 pounds in one day I am sure, but no regrets.
    December 21 - 156.7 - Back down to 1500ml of water plus coffee each day. It is much more comfortable for me. Still working on the fibre, added a bit of oatmeal the last 2 days and it has a whopping 3g of fibre. Going to try to eat 1/2 of an apple each day too.
    December 22 - 157.2
    December 23 - 158.0 - Just a blip I think, I haven't begun the holiday feasting just yet! Well within my calorie range and lots of activity. Averaging 1500-1750ml of water plus coffee on top of that. My tracker has been saying 146 in 5 weeks...for more than 6 months lol.
    December 24 - 158.8 - Not planning to eat light the next couple of days, going whole hog.

    I am redoing my goals to start my weight with what I ended with in November. My December 1st was up from Thanksgiving Dinner & it doesn't seem fair to use that weight. I can do better than that!


    My name is Donna & I am 59 years old. I am from the Midwest in the USA. 5’ 5.5” tall
    Original starting weight – 253
    December starting weight – 183.4
    December goal – 178.4
    Ultimate goal – 145 to 155 (We’ll see when we get closer)
    December results for Challenge: TBD

    01 - 187.4 Starting with a gain after Thanksgiving dinner last night. I’ll be working hard on this. I’m hoping to get back to my ending weight from November THEN lose 5 pounds on top of it. Am I dreaming? I don’t know. Stay tuned.
    03 – 183.6 That’s more like it. Travel, Restaurants & Shopping this week. Most to far away places (lots of sitting). It will be a challenge to get a good weight for the 10th but I’m up for the task of trying!
    10 – 188.4 And that is how you totally screw things up! Back to basics today!
    17 – 187.7 up & down all week, ending with up, sadly. Gotta get a grip!
    24 - 192.0 More festivities to come in the next few days coupled with travel time. January will be better.

    My weigh-in days will be Thursday. Would love to full be in maintenance by January, but we will see how December goes.

    12/1 - 144.4 up 6.7 pounds because of my 5 day Thanksgiving holiday. Way to much fun!
    12/5 - 139.4 back in the 130's at least. I'll take it!
    12/12 - 136.8 I have been floating around 137 and 138 for the last couple of weeks. I do think this will go back up.
    12/19 - 138.9 up a bit, but we are just super busy and have been drinking way more than usual at all of our parties.
    12/26 - 144.7 way to much food and alcohol. January hopefully will be better, lol!

    I'm not losing anything, nor do I plan to until after the holiday food festivities. lol
    Just keep moving, drink plenty of water, and enjoy yourself. I know I'm a lot better off now than I was two year ago when I was 65 lbs over weight! And that says something...

    Happy Holidays and Have a happy New Year!

    December 12 - 157.4 - 2000 ml of water. I don't think that the added water is long-term sustainable for me, but I am trying.
    December 13 - 157.6 - 2250ml of water again. I had hoped that the scale would go in the other direction once I got used to the extra water, but nope. Calories are still in check. Going to a party tonight, so will have to eat light during the day and get all of the water guzzling and peeing out of the way early too.
    December 14 - 158.5 - Nice holiday party, but gained one pound in one day. Hoping to be able to get rid of it, extra workouts today. Somehow managed 2250ml of water again, so that is 7 days.
    December 15 - 157.5 - 2240 of water. Not going to push it today. I have been drinking more of it during my workouts. Since I have upped it I seem to be thirstier, so I guess that I am getting used to it. All the more motivation to weigh less so that I don't have to drink so much water : - P I have been doing lemon water first thing in the morning along with upping my intake to the recommended amount.
    December 16 - 158.8 - I am taking fluctuations in stride more than I used to.
    December 17 - 158.9 - Hoping to get this back down soon.
    December 18 - 159.0 - And this is before I have even begun any holiday feasting. Definitely have been getting tired of the increase of water, but I have kept it up.
    December 19 - 159.5 - Up yet again. I have changed my diet over the last 12 days to include 1/2 brown rice (1g fibre) and 1/4 kidney beans (2g fibre) and upped my water intake. Maybe I have to wait it out.
    December 20 - 157.0 - I was low on water yesterday, only got 750ml in plus 2 coffees. I had a water bottle with me at work, but couldn't choke any down. Plus I was way to busy to have to go and find a washroom every 10 minutes. I didn't have to get up to pee at all during the night last night. Not the best way to lose 2 1/2 pounds in one day I am sure, but no regrets.
    December 21 - 156.7 - Back down to 1500ml of water plus coffee each day. It is much more comfortable for me. Still working on the fibre, added a bit of oatmeal the last 2 days and it has a whopping 3g of fibre. Going to try to eat 1/2 of an apple each day too.
    December 22 - 157.2
    December 23 - 158.0 - Just a blip I think, I haven't begun the holiday feasting just yet! Well within my calorie range and lots of activity. Averaging 1500-1750ml of water plus coffee on top of that. My tracker has been saying 146 in 5 weeks...for more than 6 months lol.
    December 24 - 158.8 - Not planning to eat light the next couple of days, going whole hog.
    December 25 - 159.1 - turkey and stuffing and gravy yet to come... Happy holidays everyone : - )
    December 26 - 161.0 - Not really finished eating yet either, looking forward to leftovers.
    December 27 - 160.2
    December 28 - 161.8

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    November 30 starting weight - 146.2 (ten-day rolling average weight 144.4)
    October goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight).

    November 30: 146.2 (ten-day rolling average weight 144.4)
    December 7: 145.4 (ten-day rolling average weight 144.7)
    December 14: 143.8 (10-day average 144.8)
    December 21: 144.2 (10-day average 144.6)
    December 21: 144.6 (10-day average 145.0)

    Total loss for December: Scale says I gained about a half pound for yet another week :frown:. My ten-day average says about the same thing. Damn. I am still in the middle of my maintenance range, and I am sort of close to my goal weight, and I'll get back there. December has been really interesting in that I really haven't gained much. In fact, my scale weight is down from November 30, but that was a HEAVY day for me. My average is up just a bit - about the same as for the week. It was October and November that I gained; now I'm pretty steady, and I'm looking to move that line back DOWN. Stay tuned to find out if I'm successful.

    I did in fact indulge a bit on the 23rd, 24th and 25th. On Christmas I ate a 3 pack of Ferrero Rocher Hazlenut Chocolates. OH MY they were so Good, worth the 230 calories and 16 Carbs. That is the first real sugar and Chocolate I have had since Mid August. So I savored it, and said no guilt. And most important, it did not lead to a binge attack, or over eating. I just enjoyed it.

    This is so awesome. That's what it's supposed to be! I'm thrilled to read this. Yay!

    Onward and Downward for all. Be kind to all you meet, as we never know what burdens others may carry.

    This, too, is awesome. Thank you!

    The hurdles exist: I am eating a little more junk food than normal but I do not feel like I am over-indulging.

    What I did not eat on the 24/25th, I did eat on the 26/27/28th, lol.

    I have one more day to attempt to eat well (1200ish calories) so I can try to start the new year under 120.

    December's Hurdles:
    Being at home from 12/20 to 12/31 - keeping myself in check with junk food and ice cream. My last day at the seasonal PT job was the 14th.
    Not eating too much food during Christmas - tamales are not the healthiest.
    Attempting to chug water while I am home from 12/20 to 12/31 - My daily average is 2 to 4 cups.
    Trying really hard to meet my goal and start the new year under 120

    Give me strength, y'all!

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017
    December Starting Weight: 122.2 lbs
    December Goal: 119.2 lbs

    Height: 5ft

    Ultimate Goal: 115 lbs
    Maintenance Goal: 110 to 115 lbs

    Weigh-In Days: Monday and Friday

    Dec 2: 123 at 8am ... I am not sweating this gain, we gain and we lose all the time. A downward trend is key.
    Dec 6: 121.8 at 7am
    Dec 9: 120.8 at 7am ... I had an evening shift the day before and really stuck to 1200 calories.
    Dec 13: 120.4 at 6:30am ... Ecstatic to break through 120.8 which I first saw on Nov 17th.
    Dec 16: 119 at 7:30am ... Umm, so I had 1250 calories on both Sat and Sun. On Sat, I had 6-hr PT shift (last one).
