    Journey so far:
    Jan 2015: I joined MFP at 227 lbs and gradually reduced
    Oct 2016: finally hit my target of 155
    Dec 2018: Had gradually wavered up again to 170s
    Jan 2019: still wavering round 170
    July 2019: bounced up and down between 160 and 170
    Aug 2019: Gave myself the proverbial kick up the a** and buckled down!
    Oct 2019: Set new goal weight of 150 by year end
    Nov 2019: Hit goal late Nov. I’m now focusing on increasing strength workouts
    Aug: -8.31 (a lot of this was holiday weight gained in July)
    Sept: -4.71
    Oct: -4.2
    Nov: -2.2 (Strength workouts temporarily slowing progress)

    Dec: + 4.4 (Christmas indulgences)

    OSW: 227 (Mar 2014)
    CSW: 170.1 (1 Aug 2019)
    LW: 147.8 (Nov 2019)
    JAN SW: 151.4
    GW: Under 150

    Wed 01 Jan: 151.4
    Thu 02 Jan: 151.6 Not the best start. We got Series 8 of GoTs for Christmas and DH opened a box of liquorice allsorts as we were watching the first episode last night. I was under goal, but the sugar has given me a touch of bloat this morning.
    Fri 03 Jan: 151.8
    Sat 04 Jan: 151.4 Phew! Glad it’s started to shift again.
    Sun 05 Jan: 151.2

    Jan 2020:- SW: 12 st 5.8

    Hope you don't mind me joining in on day 5!
    I have had a couple of days that I haven't weighed myself - including Jan 1st as I was away from home for new year's so I'm using my Jan 2nd weight as starting weight - I barely eat anything Jan 1st as, to be honest, I wasn't awake for much of it and felt quite sick when I was so I think I can still count it as a diet day.

  • I'm trying this again. I did it for several months, then got lazy. With the laziness came weight gain, so I'm back where I started.

    CW - 216.4
    January GW - 210
    Ultimate GW - 150

    I need friends! Feel free to add me!


    Jan 2020:- SW: 216.4



    Jan 1: 216.4 - Day one hasn't gone quite to plan, but I've really only had a big lunch that probably accounted for a day's worth of eating 😖, and I don't plan on eating anything else (still full). I have tomorrow logged and ready, and will use the treadmill tomorrow as well. Here I go!

    Jan 2: 215.4 (- 1.0) - Wahoo! Yesterday didn't hurt me too bad!

    Jan 3: 215.0 (-0.4, -1.4lb total) - A loss is a loss no matter how small. Today is going to be hard for me, I'm home all day which means I have free reign and can do what I want (vs where I pack my breakfast and lunch / snack for work and don't have to worry about anything till dinner). Time to find the willpower and just stick to what I'd eat at work.

    Jan 4: 213.6 (-1.4, -2.8lb total) - Wasn't really expecting that! Must be the last is the water weight from TOM ending. I'll take it though!

    Jan 5: 213.0 (-0.6, -3.4lbs total) - Still going down. Wasn't expecting it. We had sandwiches (capriottis) for dinner and I ate a whole medium sandwich. Luckily it made me so full that I didn't eat anything after 645 last night. I've found that if I eat a large lunch, and then a smaller dinner, I lose better that way. So as long as my dinner isn't too heavy and I don't snack afterwards (I may have a piece or 2 of the left over Christmas chocolate (mmm lindor truffles and godiva)) I'm usually okay the next morning. I guess I'm IF-ing in a sense cause I normally don't eat anything until I take my lunch at work (1pm ish). But it's working so far so I'm gonna stick with it! I stopped drinking coffee like 3 weeks ago, but I'm tempted to start drinking it again using sugar free creamer, or even a scoop or so of vanilla protein powder. I havent made up my mind on that one yet though.

    MFP Start weight: 160 lbs
    Started “just give 1 month” threads in Mid-Oct 2019 @ 157.4 lbs
    January start weight: 157.4 lbs
    January goal: 153 lbs
    Ultimate goal: 98 lbs, but that maybe too low. Main goal is to be healthier & stronger.

    October +2.6 lbs. (160)
    Nov. -2 lbs. (156.6 lbs)
    Dec. Stayed the same (155.6 lbs)

    Jan 1 = 157.2
    Jan 2 = 156.6
    Jan 3 = 156.6 I need to start back to planning my meals, again. Got way off during the holidays... with out of town guests & of course the holiday parties.
    Jan 4 = 157.4
    Jan 5 = 157.6 I haven't been trying at all the last couple days, but I just planned my meals, today. So, even if I don't show a loss the next couple days... I'm hoping that each day I'll be able to report that I was at or under calories...

    I gained ~8 pounds during the second half of December. It's time to get back on track! My goal for January is to make it down to the 150s again. I'd like to put the 160s behind me for good this time!

    Starting weight: 184.6
    Start weight this month: 167.9
    Goal weight this month: 159.9
    Target goal weight: TBD

    Jan 1: 167.9 - stayed on track with diet; 20-minute workout
    Jan 2: 166.2 - stayed on track with diet; 20-minute workout
    Jan 3: 165.1 - stayed on track with diet; 20-minute workout
    Jan 4: 164.4 - stayed on track with diet; 20-minute workout
    Jan 5: 162.9 - stayed on track with diet; 20-minute workout; it looks like much of my holiday weight gain was water and food/waste that has now worked its way through my system -- that's a relief!
