    Female, 59, 5'3"
    MFP start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    February goal: 153.1
    May goal: 138.1
    Ultimate goal: 112-115

    Saturday February 01 - 158.1
    Sunday February 02 - 158.1 - I am going to indulge a bit at a Superbowl party, but will try to be moderate. I will eat light beforehand and get in extra workouts to give myself a few calories to play with.
    Monday February 03 - 161.4 - Superbowl aftermath, almost 3 pound gain in one day.
    Tuesday February 04 - 161.4 - Maybe tomorrow it will start to go back down
    Wednesday February 05 - 159.2 - First goal - get back to the beginning of the month weight. Second goal - get back to October/November weight. Third goal get into a lower set point in the 150s.
    Thursday February 06 - 158.1- 1st goal reached.
    Friday February 07 - 157.4 - I was at 156.7 in October - but I ceased being able to ice skate after November when my knees became sore. Ice skating is a huge calorie burn, so I have had to adjust. Hoping to see that number again soon, I am working very hard at it.
    Saturday February 08 - 155.9 - Yahoo! The hard work might be paying off! New low for me today : - )
    Sunday February 09 - 157.9 - 2 pound jump for no reason, but I will stay the course doing what got me to my new low yesterday.
    Monday February 10 - 157.4
    Tuesday February 11 - 158.2 - less working out yesterday, plus a very early weigh-in compared to usual.
    Wednesday February 12 - 159.6 - Had Ribs for dinner last night, so many calories, burned many calories, but ate more erasing my deficit.
    Thursday February 13 - 158.8 - Coming back down. I will have to work really hard to make up for that one delicious dinner : - )
    Friday February 14 - 157.7 - Festivities tomorrow, going to moderate as much as I can. Half way through the month and down 0.4lbs - not good enough. Such hard work!!
    Saturday February 15 - 156.3 - bit of a buffer before the festival food and drink.
    Sunday February 16 - 158.2 - Up almost 2 pounds in one day argh. Hopefully I can get that back off fast.
    Monday February 17 - 158.5 - I was "good" lots of calories left over yesterday. It will come back down with diligence.
    Tuesday February 18 157.9 - better
    Wednesday February 19 - 158.4 - Had a good dinner. Still within my calorie range, but I only seem to lose weight if I can work out enough to to have a 500+ deficit on my tracker each day. I only had 200 calories left over yesterday, so am up in weight. Really need to get back to my Feb beginning weight and beyond in the next 10 days. Not destined to eat like normal people, but I'm okay with that, willing to put in the work.
    Thursday Feb 20 - 157.9
    Friday February 20 - 156.0 - Not getting my hopes up too high, but this could be the first month since November where I might see a loss : - )
    Saturday February 21 - 155.5

    @dawnbgethealthy Your dates are off for today and yesterday (Fri & Sat). Congratulations on how well you are doing this month!

    I am weighing in on the First and the Last day of each month for a full monthly account.


    MY STATS:

    Highest weight ever (2014/2015): 253
    Original starting weight for this current journey : (1-11-2018) 235.0
    January Ending weight – 191.6
    February goal - 186.6 lbs
    February Actual Ending Weight:


    Weight/Comment:

    Feb 01 - 191.6 Good luck everyone!
    Feb 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.
    Feb 15 - 194.8 Slowly getting worse. Experimenting with diet and apparently it’s not working like I thought it would. I need to lose weight while keeping my glucose numbers in check and watching the fats because of my gall bladder. Uggg. It’s a science. I’ll get it.
    Feb 22 - 195.0 I went up a bit higher this past week after travel and glucose problems, but am slowly working it back down. It’s at a trickle pace, but it all counts!

    Original starting weight -305, May 2018
    Restart Weight 250.6 September 2019
    February starting weight - 224
    February goal - 219
    First big goal, then will decide how much more 190
    Age 61
    Height 5'9
    I weigh in on Saturdays.

    1st - 224
    8th- 223.5
    15th - 227
    22nd - 227 is average weighing every day, goes up a bit, goes down, comes back to this.
    29th -

    Up 3 lbs or so.

    So I got bit on 2/12/2020, put on antibiotics. I do not do well on antibiotics, that reads weird but is true. Had follow up blood tests, now am seeing an infectious specialist. Yep, MRSA has shown up.
    You know sometimes, we need hit over the head or at least I do. One of the nurses at the specialist office said to me. Take a break, go into maintaining your weight mode. You need to work on getting the cellulitis under control, and getting rid of the MRSA, and the low grade fever. That is what is important. Once that is under control, then yes go back to your weight loss quest. But first this part of your health is what needs your attention. I felt about an inch tall. As I never once looked at it that way. And she is so right. I am working on about 20 minute of exercise per day. But also working on everything they told me. And going in three times per week for 3 hour sessions of antibiotic cocktails via IV.

    Onward and downward we shall go!
