    Since I just started again after gaining steadily for several months, I am sure this first week is water weight and not actual fat loss, but I will take it! I logged religiously and did not go over my goal of 1200 calories per day. I am not going to add exercise at the gym quite yet, but hopefully soon.

    MY NAME IS DONNA. I AM 59 YEARS YOUNG & FROM THE MIDWEST USA. I AM APPROX 5’ 5” TALL.

    Challenge Goal weight: xxxxx

    February 01: 191.6 Good luck everyone!

    February 08: 192.0 I started my new plan in order to figure out what is going on with my glucose numbers. Watching calories more than carbs this time (glucose has been running too low!). Today and yesterday found my glucose too high so I will continue to tweak to see if I can come up with a good weight loss plan without hurting my T2D efforts. I am down 0.1 from yesterday which I will call a normal fluctuation.

    @CaliMomTeach Level 5 at your weight is probably too much—it's harder to lose that much weight in that amount of time if you're not 200+ pounds. Also, you should not be eating under 1200 calories a day unless a doctor gave you the okay, but even then, I would say a second doctor's opinion would be best. You're working hard and that's clear to see, but slow and steady wins the race and is much healthier for you! Eating too few calories consistently can lead to many problems for you, both physically and mentally.

    Sorry if you meant it was just a one-time thing for intermittent fasting or something of that sort. I just want to be sure you are not trying to eat under 1200 all the time!

    I put in to lose 2 pounds a week and MFP gave me 1200 calories a day. When I add exercise, I am planning on eating more.

    Started this seriously when I went to the doc and the scale tipped 200.4 9 days ago. I used to always say to myself "well, I'm not 200" Now I am 200. I have faithfully been staying under my calorie count, going to the gym every week day and doing at least an hour workout on the arc trainer plus strength training two days a week. Needle has not moved one bit. Wondering what I could be doing wrong? Any advice would be awesome! I am 54 years old, have 5 kids and a very active job.

    Well done on making a start. Stick with it!
    Are you weighing/measuring portions out? (Eyeballing it is notoriously unreliable.)
    Logging every single mouthful? (Every lick, nibble, sip has calories. They mount up!)
    Drinking enough fluids? (Good hydration is essential.)
    Paying attention to salt content? (Salty foods can lead to water retention, and apparent weight gain.)
    All of these can impact your efforts.

    If you're paying attention to all these things, the scale will move eventually!

    Welcome to the rest of your life. Make it a good one! 😂

    Been weighing everything. Stopped drinking beer, stopped drinking soda. MFP has me at 1360 calories and I try to stay under that even though I add exercise. Made an appointment with the doctor for next week to see if she has any suggestions. I'll bring her all of my info and data. Maybe there's a medical reason. Maybe 1360 is too high.
