    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 21 - 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 22 - 155.5
    Sunday February 23 - 155.4 - A 3 pound loss for the month would be so great, there are days left in which to accomplish this.
    Monday February 24 - 156.3 - No reason for the gain, so going to think of it as a normal fluctuation.

    Total loss for February -4lbs overall I'm happy with it. Didn't lose the 5lba but had issues in the last week so makes sense hoping to get down the full 5 for March 🙂

    @dawnbgethealthy Thank you for the encouragement!! It really helps me out. I've been weighing in - I just never got around to posting this month, lol.

    I have my days where I feel bleh about the scale just going back and forth but overall, I'm not giving up. :)
