    While I was at home during the holidays, I found it easier to eat two meals a day. I had a few days where I really indulged (1500 to 2000 calories) but they have seemed to balanced out now.

    My weekly average was 119.4 last week so I am not worried about my weigh-in today.

    FYI: I have adjusted my ultimate goal because when I hit 118 last month, I realized that I still wanted to try to lower my body fat to a normal range. I have been back and forth with 33% and 34% for about a month. My goal is 30% and we will see what happens. I tend to carry my weight around my waist and hips.

    MFP Starting Weight: 140 lbs - February 2011
    Current Starting Weight: 147.4 lbs - November 2017
    January Starting Weight: 121.6 lbs
    January Goal: 118.6 lbs

    Height: 5ft

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

    Weigh-In Days: Monday and Friday

    Jan 3: 118.6 at 12pm ... yes, I slept for 8 hours and went to sleep extra late the evening prior
    Jan 6: 117.6 at 5:30am ... so happy that we went to the gym this morning and it's my first day back at work

    Just curious if you have looked into intermittent fasting. It’s a nice supplement to counting calories and can help with hormone regulation. Dr. Fung’s videos on YouTube have some great info.
