    Hi , I am late in this thread, but I am 5’2 47 and I already weigh everyday, would love to keep up with some support. I lost 50+ lbs since April, goal is 140-160( need to see what 160 looks like, I weighted 140 in the Army at 22 years old. But I was solid muscle. 160 is a size 6-8 for me.

    Female; Age 52; 5'2"; San Diego, CA

    Original starting weight Dec 2019:- 173 pounds
    January 2020 starting weight:- 169.4
    Goal weight this month January 2020:- 164 lbs
    Target goal weight:- 135 lbs

    Dec 2019:- SW: 173 (-3.6 lbs)
    Jan 2020:- SW: 169.4

    We can do this! One step at a time, one week at a time, one pound at a time!

    Jan 1: 169.4 Quiet day! We're constantly doing projects at home, so today was my day off. Back at it tomorrow!
    Jan 2:
    Jan 3: 169.6
    Jan 4: 169.4
    Jan 5: 169.6 Not getting anywhere at the moment :(
    Jan 6: 168.2 About time seeing some movement. Started my exercise routine back up today. 15mins Max trainer; 30 mins fat burn treadmill; some free weights.
    Jan 7: 168.6 Ugh, back to work :(
    Jan 8: 168.6 Hanging in there - yet again, ups and downs.
    Jan 9: 168.4
    Jan 10: 168.0 Exercised every week day this week. Keep on keeping on!
    Jan 11: 167.8
    Jan 12: 167
    Jan 13: 167.8
    Jan 14: 167.6
    Jan 15: 168.2 And here it goes again - ups and downs. So frustrating. Unfortunately it's the 167 mark that I give up, so just going to have to keep up with the 2 threads I post on and 'keep on keeping on'.
    Jan 16: 167.4
    Jan 17: 167.6
    Jan 18: 168
    Jan 19: 167.6 Starting my pre colonoscopy eating today. It's going to be an interesting few days before and after. :s
    Jan 20: 167
    Jan 21: 166.4 Clear liquid only day...yikes, that's hard to do.
    Jan 22: 163.8 My system is cleaning out....I'll be squeaking tomorrow! Glad when its over and I can have real food again.
    Jan 23: 165.4 And here it comes back on - hoping to keep it at bay. We'll see tomorrow.
    Jan 24: 166
    Jan 25: 165.4 OK, so hopefully this is me leveling out after my procedure Wednesday. Really going to focus on getting down to my monthly goal I had hoped for. Before going grocery shopping, I'm going to scan the web for some recipes and get a menu going so I'm well prepared. DH is away all this week, so I have to be careful to be honest with myself.

    OOH-OOH, please let me try this. I can't weigh me everyday to be honest-it is too discouraging. And the boy seems to have hidden my scale. I can weigh at the YMCA but didn't go today b/c boy is SICK. I am at WW so really weigh just 1 x weekly but
    1-21 193.7 # official
    1-22 about 188 at Y
    1-24 still about 188 at Y
    Goal is 125 # but 10 # in 4 weeks would be fantastic. Hoping to do 2 # weekly. First happy goal--husband's ring falls off and have to wear mine. Progress: his ring sort of slips a bit

    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...
    Jan 6 =156.8 lbs :) Yesterday, I stayed under in calories. I only had 24 oz. of water, though. Right now, my aim is for at least 32 oz. of water.
    Jan 7 = 155.6 lbs Stayed under in calories, yesterday. Only drank 24 oz of water, tho.
    Jan 8 = 156.8 lbs Did not stay under in calories, had a little stress eating or a lot of stress eating. Drank 32 oz of water
    Jan 9 = 158.2 lbs
    Jan 10 = 159 lbs. yep, I know. It's the stress, binge eating thang. Shtupid, me! I will get with the program!!!!!!!!!! I expect to be weigh up on Saturday, the 11th. But, please make this the last time that I do this!!! When I follow my plans, I usually lose & even feel better! Come on Elbee1 -- You can do this!!!!!!!!!! We all can do it!!!!!! I'm not gonna give up! Never give up! This is my year -- I know it is!!!!
    Jan 11 = 159 lbs Well...I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't gain even more. . . just stayed the same from yesterday.
    Jan 12 = 158 lbs :) Stayed under in calories, yesterday.
    Jan 13 = 157 :) Stayed under in calories, yesterday, too. Somehow I controlled my binge urge, tonight. Only over by 83 calories, today.
    Jan 14 = 156.2 :) Only over in calories, yesterday, buy 83. Been drinking 4 glasses of water daily. Almost stopped, today, & gave in to the craving of wonderful foods that were smelling so good as I was driving thru an area that has some wonderful restaurants. Then, later while driving got sleepy & had to eat to stay awake.. could have been much worse.
    Jan 15 = 156.2 :) Stayed under in calories, yesterday.
    Jan 16 = 156.8
    Jan 17 = 156.8
    Jan 18 = 156.8
    Jan 19 = 157.2 lbs :( And, back to where I started this month... Ain't gonna lose it by having birthday cake at someone's party & not staying under in calories. Today will be a great day!!!
    Jan 20 = 157.8 lbs :( Yesterday, was a terrible food day...
    Jan 21= 156.8 lbs :) Yesterday was a good food day!!!
    Jan 22 = 156.8 lbs :) I may not make my goal, but I hope that I end up with a loss of anything & not a gain. 155 would be great ...
    Jan 23 = 156.8 lbs :)
    Jan 24 = 156.8 lbs :)
    Jan 25 = 157.8 lbs :) Yes, I am happy with this because the last couple days have been crazy & stressful. I thought I had gained closer to 5 or 10 lbs...

    Starting weight: 163.4 lb
    Start weight this month: 147.8
    Goal weight this month: 140
    Target goal weight: 128

    August: lost 1.2 lb
    September: lost 4.2 lb
    October: lost 3.7 lb
    November: lost 3.9 lb
    December: lost 4.3 lb (but ended high due to New Year’s)

    (I use Happy Scale, so the losses above are determined by moving average. I will post my actual daily weight below.)

    01 Jan: 147.8 (my lowest in Dec was 144.6) Definitely indulged for a couple of days at the beach for New Year’s with family. I expect this to go down quickly after a few days back to my normal routine....hopefully, anyways!
    02 Jan: 148.8 I ate within my deficit calories yesterday, so this increase is either from DOMS (I’m still extremely sore from a hard workout on Tuesday), or it’s PMS a lil early? Oh well, patience!
    03 Jan: 148
    04 Jan: 146.8
    05 Jan: 145.8
    06 Jan: 146.8 —had buttered popcorn at the movies yesterday, ie, sodium-induced water weight!
    07 Jan: 146.8 —staying at a calorie deficit, but more salt plus PMS still, so I’m not letting go of the water! Patience...
    08 Jan: 147.4 Seriously! Admittedly, more salt again.
    09 Jan: 147 TOM today, finally!! Hopefully I can lose some of this now. I’ve been within my calorie goal, so something’s gotta give soon! (It usually takes 5 more days after TOM starts-boo)
    10 Jan: 146.4
    11 Jan: 146.2 Surprised, since I had Domino’s pizza last night—high sodium
    12 Jan: 146.8 Tearin’ it up in Jan! Lol
    13 Jan: 146.8 Uuuugggghhhhhhh!!!! I mean, patience...!?! Within my goal calories...
    14 Jan: 145.2 There’s some of it gone after TOM (Yep, takes 5 days after I start!). I’m still not down to my lowest in Dec, but hopefully soon.
    15 Jan: 146.2 Had sushi last night, so yeah, sodium!
    16 Jan: 144.6 Okay, finally back to my previous low from Dec. Now to actually lose some!
    17 Jan: 145.0
    18 Jan: 145.0 pizza last night—sodium!
    19 Jan: 145.4 ate at maintenance yesterday
    20 Jan: 146.8 unexpectedly had sushi out last night—stayed within calories, but sodium!
    21 Jan: 145.8
    22 Jan: 144.2 Finally, a new low! I was beginning to wonder if I really was eating at a deficit! I peed a LOT yeasterday, so yeah, water weight! Whoosh!
    23 Jan: 143.4 Wow, that’s...nice! It’s really coming off now. I’ve had lower sodium the past two days, so I’m sure there was some water weight masking a some true weight loss. It’ll probably bounce back up soon, but I’ll take it for now!
    24 Jan: 142.8 Nice, but weird
    25 Jan: 143.4 Homemade pizza last night

    I was a bit of a couch potato yesterday, and may not have been as rigorous with my food and water as as I should have been. However, it's just one day, and not relevant in the scheme of things, so long as I don't do it often. Sometimes we just need to chill out!

    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
    Mon 06 Jan: 151.2
    Tue 07 Jan: 151.1
    Wed 08 Jan: 150.9
    Thu 09 Jan: 150.2 😍 not really expecting this drop as we were entertaining yesterday, and I did indulge somewhat.
    Fri 10 Jan: 150.2 😄 Happy that it’s sticking! 😂
    Sat 11 Jan: 149.9 😄
    Sun 12 Jan: 149.6 😄
    Mon 13 Jan: 149.4 😍 3 days under 150, and not yet half way through the month. Staying on track, upping the intensity of my workouts gradually, and reigning in on the snacks seems to be doing the business. Daily monitoring is underlining the need for being mindful.
    Tue 14 Jan: 149.6 😁 Note to self: Avoid salty snacks at bedtime! DOH!!!!
    Wed 15 Jan: 150.1 😏 Cause and effect! Water retention.
    Thu 16 Jan: 149.2 😍 Better!
    Fri 17 Jan: 150.2
    Sat 18 Jan: 149.6 Boing! Boing! Boing! 😂
    Sun 19 Jan: 149.4
    Mon 20 Jan: 149.6
    Jan 21: 149.2 🎉
    Jan 22: 149.2
    Jan 23: 149.6
    Jan 24: 149.6
    Jan 25: 150.1 Hey! Ho! 😏 Natural consequence of going off-plan 😏 (High sodium/low water)

  • Starting weight 325lbs 22nd August 2019
    Start weight this month 264.4
    Goal weight this month 256
    Target goal weight 165lbs possibly less undecided yet!

    Going a little easier on my goal this month as I didn't make goal again last month. Missed by 0.4lbs!

    Sept loss 14.9lbs
    October loss 12.1lbs
    November loss 11.6lbs
    December loss 10.2lbs

    1 January 264.7! Great I start the new year up by 0.3lbs! Probably last night’s alcohol so back on the water today 😊

    2 January 264.5 down a little but weighed late in the day so hoping it’s not accurate! Walked miles today so here’s hoping for a little more off tomorrow!

    3 January 264.4 down a little but today is my birthday so I’ve had a glass of Baileys tonight. Fingers crossed it doesn’t do too much damage tomorrow!

    4 January 264.4 again! Aaarrrggghhh! Sick of this number! Know full well I slightly overdid it yesterday but also didn’t drink enough water but just a little drop would be encouraging at this point! Extra exercise the last couple of weeks as well and still not a great result! Frustrating but I’m going to drink more and keep plugging away at it! I will have a summer body for the summer dagnamit!

    5 January 263.7 finally a little loss at last! All that walking and all the water drunk did help. Guess I’ll keep going today then!

    6 January - didn't weigh today, busy day.

    7 January 264.4! Not impressed but TOM on the way and this always happens. Drinking loads to try to help. Not helping that I'm back at work today and having to sit in front of the computer all day isn't helping with my step count! Treadmill for hours later it is then. Humph at this. Hate fluctuations I can't help!

    8 January 263.3! Yay a loss at last! A new low for me as well. Definitely going to keep on with the water and have chosen a new supper meal to stop me overdoing the butter on my toast. I'm doing this!!!

    9 January 263.3 Now I don’t like this number either! Gah! Can’t really expect a daily loss but I always hope! At least it wasn’t a gain so I’ll take that as a win! 😊

    10 January no weigh in

    11 January 262.9 pleased with this. Another new low. I know it’s getting harder now but I think the no toast and butter change is helping. 😀

    12 January 261.9 so pleased with this. Feels like progress and the first real progress of this month. Hope it continues or I’m not going to make my goal this month either! Keep drinking the water! 💦

    13 January 262! Ah well, not going to worry about this one, too small an increase to matter! Had expected more of an increase as I wasn't well yesterday and didn't move about much at all. So I guess I'll take that happily! Keep drinking the water!

    14 January 261.9 It seems similar numbers are here to haunt me, but it's a tiny loss so I'll take it!

    15 January 261.6, again a little loss but still a loss! Decided to be tougher with myself about my ambiguous calories. I've got a long way to go so i want to do it a little more quickly!

    16 January 260.7 Pleased with this! Hoping 4.7lbs is doable by the end of the month now! I'd really like to hit my goal just once on one of these threads! I suppose I could pick a less aggressive goal but I need to be aiming high to help motivate me!

    17 January 259.7 😃😃😃 utterly over the moon to be in the 250s again! I even did a little happy dance 💃 this morning. Delighted 😁 6.7lbs to my lowest ever recorded on here or Fitbit and 3.7lbs to this month’s goal. 😊

    18 January 259.3 woo hoo! Another loss! Delighted 😁

    19 January 259.5 ho hum. Will keep at it! Need to up the water again! 3.5lbs to goal. Gotta make this one! 😊

    20 January 259.6. I absolutely know this is due to not drinking enough water but it’s so hard when I’m spending all day in the car with no access to 🚽! Must try harder somehow!!! I will make every effort to make goal this month!

    21 January 259.9 double gah!

    22 January 259.9 I hate that number, it’s obviously my new 264.4 for this week! Big water day tomorrow for sure and being extra careful with calorie counting!

    23 January 259.1 We have another drop at last. Can't help thinking all the pasta I've had lately has hindered the losses. No more pasta for a while! I'm not going to make goal this month but as long as I keep getting the little losses I'm still smiling!

    24 January 258.2 woohoo 🙌 so pleased to see this number at last! Keeping on keeping on! Today is a lovely day 🌞

    25 January 257.3 Thrilled to bits with this! I still don’t expect to make my January goal but seeing this number makes me very happy 😆

    26 January 255.8 There aren’t enough squealing with delight emojis for this one! Now to hope I stay below this month’s goal until the end of this month 🤩😂

    Starting weight: 163.4 lb
    Start weight this month: 147.8
    Goal weight this month: 140
    Target goal weight: 128

    August: lost 1.2 lb
    September: lost 4.2 lb
    October: lost 3.7 lb
    November: lost 3.9 lb
    December: lost 4.3 lb (but ended high due to New Year’s)

    (I use Happy Scale, so the losses above are determined by moving average. I will post my actual daily weight below.)

    01 Jan: 147.8 (my lowest in Dec was 144.6) Definitely indulged for a couple of days at the beach for New Year’s with family. I expect this to go down quickly after a few days back to my normal routine....hopefully, anyways!
    02 Jan: 148.8 I ate within my deficit calories yesterday, so this increase is either from DOMS (I’m still extremely sore from a hard workout on Tuesday), or it’s PMS a lil early? Oh well, patience!
    03 Jan: 148
    04 Jan: 146.8
    05 Jan: 145.8
    06 Jan: 146.8 —had buttered popcorn at the movies yesterday, ie, sodium-induced water weight!
    07 Jan: 146.8 —staying at a calorie deficit, but more salt plus PMS still, so I’m not letting go of the water! Patience...
    08 Jan: 147.4 Seriously! Admittedly, more salt again.
    09 Jan: 147 TOM today, finally!! Hopefully I can lose some of this now. I’ve been within my calorie goal, so something’s gotta give soon! (It usually takes 5 more days after TOM starts-boo)
    10 Jan: 146.4
    11 Jan: 146.2 Surprised, since I had Domino’s pizza last night—high sodium
    12 Jan: 146.8 Tearin’ it up in Jan! Lol
    13 Jan: 146.8 Uuuugggghhhhhhh!!!! I mean, patience...!?! Within my goal calories...
    14 Jan: 145.2 There’s some of it gone after TOM (Yep, takes 5 days after I start!). I’m still not down to my lowest in Dec, but hopefully soon.
    15 Jan: 146.2 Had sushi last night, so yeah, sodium!
    16 Jan: 144.6 Okay, finally back to my previous low from Dec. Now to actually lose some!
    17 Jan: 145.0
    18 Jan: 145.0 pizza last night—sodium!
    19 Jan: 145.4 ate at maintenance yesterday
    20 Jan: 146.8 unexpectedly had sushi out last night—stayed within calories, but sodium!
    21 Jan: 145.8
    22 Jan: 144.2 Finally, a new low! I was beginning to wonder if I really was eating at a deficit! I peed a LOT yeasterday, so yeah, water weight! Whoosh!
    23 Jan: 143.4 Wow, that’s...nice! It’s really coming off now. I’ve had lower sodium the past two days, so I’m sure there was some water weight masking a some true weight loss. It’ll probably bounce back up soon, but I’ll take it for now!
    24 Jan: 142.8 Nice, but weird
    25 Jan: 143.4 Homemade pizza last night
    26 Jan: 144 Went out to eat last night

    Starting weight: 170.8
    Starting weight this month: 140.2
    Goal weight this month: 134
    Target goal weight: I’m not sure yet, shooting for 130 first.

    August: lost 5.5 pounds
    September: lost 5 pounds
    October: lost 10 pounds
    November: lost 5 pounds
    December: lost 5.6 pounds

    This month will be way different then usual. Doing the Daniel Fast starting Jan 5th for 21 days, for spiritual reasons. So my workouts will probably suffer a little and I will probably lose weight fast in those 21 days.

    Jan 01: 140.2
    Jan 02: 139.8
    Jan 03: 139.8
    Jan 04: 138.4
    Jan 05: 137.8
    Jan 06: 137.6
    Jan 07: 137.4
    Jan 08: 136.0
    Jan 09: 135.6
    Jan 10: 133.4 🤯 I know this is just a lot of water weight and will even out over the next couple weeks, so I’m not going to change my goal.
    Jan 11: 134.0
    Jan 12: 133.6
    Jan 13: 134.0
    Jan 14: 134.8
    Jan 15: 134.2
    Jan 16: 133.8
    Jan 17: 133.0
    Jan 18: 132.0 shocked I’m still losing. I feel like I’m eating so much food, it’s just Daniel fast approved 🤷‍♀️
    Jan 19: 132.0
    Jan 20: 131.4
    Jan 21: 130.4 I think the training for a 10k is burning more calories than I realized and that’s why I’m losing so fast 😬 Saturday is the last day of the fast, so I’m sure I’ll start gaining some back after that.
    Jan 22: 130.4
    Jan 23: 130.8
    Jan 24: 130.6
    Jan 25: 130.8
    Jan 26: 129.2 fasting ended after prayer yesterday, had ice cream and a burger for dinner 🤪

    May lost 8 lbs
    June lost 1.6 lbs
    July lost 2 lbs
    August lost 4.2 lbs
    September lost 6.6 lbs
    October lost 2 lbs
    November gained .4 lbs
    December gained 1.8 lbs

    Original weight: 234 lbs
    End of month goal weight: 208
    Goal weight: 180 lbs, then re-evaluate


    Jan 1: 211.8
    Jan 2: 211
    Jan 3: 210.4 (going HARD so far, been flawless with the diet, and working out more intensely than usual. The goal is to see if I can keep it up for a month)
    Jan 4: 209.6
    Jan 5: 208.8
    Jan 6: 208.8
    Jan 7: 209 (this was disappointing, I've done really well so far)
    Jan 8: 208.2
    Jan 9: 207.8
    Jan 10: 207.4
    Jan 11: 206.8
    Jan 12: 207.8 (I was under my calories, but my day was like 50% carbs, including 2 bowls of popcorn. I'm expecting this to come off soon)
    Jan 13: 207
    Jan 14: 206 (new low! Haven't seen this in a couple of months, so I'm pretty psyched. And the last couple of days have been HARD....eating the same amount, but much hungrier than usual).
    Jan 15: 208.8 (they catered lunch at work and, already off the wagon, I had fast food for dinner. Bad me! That said, I only went over by about half a pound worth of calories, so I expect this to come off in a few days).
    Jan 16: 208
    Jan 17: 207.4 (just a reminder that, at my age, a "cheat meal" takes 3 days to work off, and a "cheat day" takes a week. UGH)
    Jan 18: 208.8
    Jan 19: DNW
    Jan 20: 211.8
    Jan 21: 210.8 (This was a BAD weekend. While I didn't go CRAZY, I didn't follow my diet at all, and this was the damage. OUCH.)
    Jan 22: 209.6
    Jan 23: 208.6
    Jan 24: 208.4
    Jan 25: 207.6

    Female; Age 52; 5'2"; San Diego, CA

    Original starting weight Dec 2019:- 173 pounds
    January 2020 starting weight:- 169.4
    Goal weight this month January 2020:- 164 lbs
    Target goal weight:- 135 lbs

    Dec 2019:- SW: 173 (-3.6 lbs)
    Jan 2020:- SW: 169.4

    We can do this! One step at a time, one week at a time, one pound at a time!

    Jan 1: 169.4 Quiet day! We're constantly doing projects at home, so today was my day off. Back at it tomorrow!
    Jan 2:
    Jan 3: 169.6
    Jan 4: 169.4
    Jan 5: 169.6 Not getting anywhere at the moment :(
    Jan 6: 168.2 About time seeing some movement. Started my exercise routine back up today. 15mins Max trainer; 30 mins fat burn treadmill; some free weights.
    Jan 7: 168.6 Ugh, back to work :(
    Jan 8: 168.6 Hanging in there - yet again, ups and downs.
    Jan 9: 168.4
    Jan 10: 168.0 Exercised every week day this week. Keep on keeping on!
    Jan 11: 167.8
    Jan 12: 167
    Jan 13: 167.8
    Jan 14: 167.6
    Jan 15: 168.2 And here it goes again - ups and downs. So frustrating. Unfortunately it's the 167 mark that I give up, so just going to have to keep up with the 2 threads I post on and 'keep on keeping on'.
    Jan 16: 167.4
    Jan 17: 167.6
    Jan 18: 168
    Jan 19: 167.6 Starting my pre colonoscopy eating today. It's going to be an interesting few days before and after. :s
    Jan 20: 167
    Jan 21: 166.4 Clear liquid only day...yikes, that's hard to do.
    Jan 22: 163.8 My system is cleaning out....I'll be squeaking tomorrow! Glad when its over and I can have real food again.
    Jan 23: 165.4 And here it comes back on - hoping to keep it at bay. We'll see tomorrow.
    Jan 24: 166
    Jan 25: 165.4 OK, so hopefully this is me leveling out after my procedure Wednesday. Really going to focus on getting down to my monthly goal I had hoped for. Before going grocery shopping, I'm going to scan the web for some recipes and get a menu going so I'm well prepared. DH is away all this week, so I have to be careful to be honest with myself.
