    Do you ever feel ripped off when you know you nailed your food and exercise and all you lost was one measly little pound? I get it...one pound is good and all but man...I did the work. Have a great weekend everyone![/quote]

    Most definitely!! Sometimes I handle it better than others : - )
    At least you are losing each week.

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    December 31 starting weight - 146.4 (ten-day rolling average weight 145.2)
    January goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

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

    December 28: 144.6 (10-day average 145.0)
    January 4: 144.8 (10-day average 145.3)
    January 11: 143.6 (10-day average 144.4)
    January 18: 139.8 (10-day average 143.5)
    January 25: 144.2 (10-day average 142.7)
    January 31:

    Total loss for January: My scale went up three pounds overnight from my late night feast. Oh well. It's still a bit lower than the beginning of January, and my ten-day average weight is definitely back down at/below goal about 2.25 pounds less than the beginning of the month. Last week's weight was low from the bug that was running amok in my gut.

    January 06 - 159.8
    January 10 - 161.2 - Going in the wrong direction!
    January 11 - 160.2
    January 12 - 162.8 - Officially back to my April 2019 weight, ouch
    January 13 - 164.0 - Still gaining apparently, I think that this is left over from the 11th when I went out for dinner.
    January 14 - 162.5

    January 23 - 157.5 - Well, that is more like it!
    January 24 - 157.5 - Going out to dinner tonight, so will keep the calories to a bare minimum during the day.
    January 25 - 157.2 - After Dinner out, kept the calories in check. Even when I do that, I sometimes I gain 3 pounds, probably because of restaurant sodium overload.

    SUCCESS! Five pounds in January - over a pound a week. At some point, you'll even be slowing down to a half pound a week and reporting THAT success too. Whatever you've been doing this month is working.

    January 27 - 160.1 - There are a few reasons for that even though I am feeling leaner today: No sleep due to cold/flu, I put 4 tablespoons of Black Bean Sauce into my stir-fry last night and didn't know until I tracked it that it was 6,893 of sodium!! I have been tracking my left over calories in the 10-day challenge and in 9 days I had 4,090 left over so really should be seeing a loss very soon.

    Running tally for January Gain/Loss: Gain 0.6 pounds

    @mtaratoot, Still 4 days left😁

    @dawnbgethealthy, Dawn, woo, that sauce would be in my trash can right now. Fresh lemon juice and parsley in water will flush out the sodium. You've done so well in the past year. Your weight will begin to drop again soon.
