    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    March 31 starting weight - 146.6 (ten-day rolling average weight 146.2)
    March goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

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

    March 31: 146.6 (10-day average 146.2)
    April 1: 147.8 (10-day average 146.3)
    April 4: 146.0 (10-day average 146.0)
    April 11: 148.4 (10-day average 147.8)
    April 18: 147.8 (10-day average 148.8)
    April 25:
    April 30:

    Total loss for April: Well whaddaya know? My scale weight today is the same as April 1. That's about the only good thing I an say, and that's kind of cheating because it's more than a pound over my March 31 scale weight.

    OK, well, my scale was also less than last week, so that's good too.

    But my average weight has been going up, up, up, UP.

    I gained in March, and I continued to gain in the first half of April. It looks like I may have maxed out and have started to moderate again back to where I should be. Of course it looked like that near the end of March when I had a slight decline before heading towards the top of the screen again. Grrr.

    This has been my second biggest spike since I started weight maintenance almost two years ago. My only solace is that I did have ONE that was bigger. It was shortly after I got into maintenance and was learning to adjust. This one? Well.... stress eating is a big part of it. And being at home so much of the time. And being a good cook.....

    Hey, wait; here's another good thing: As my weight does start to come back down, I'll be able to post here that YES I weigh less than last month :smile: If I accept my wider ten-pound goal range, I haven't quite gone over it, but I certainly went over the top of what I claim to be my goal range ten of the last 14 days by scale weight and seven days by ten-day average. The TrendWeight app says it's only four days, and only by 0.1 pounds, so I will go with that and still say I'm maintaining. Not very well, but.....

    Stay safe!

    Total loss for April +1.4 LBS

    NOTES - i know exactly why I had that spike. High sodium foods yesterday and a beer. Hubby got the grill on and made pre seasoned Ribs and sausages and even if all I had were veggies as a side I can feel I’m retaining water due to the high sodium. Let’s hope that today’s cleaner eating and lots of water brings this back down by tomorrow morning.

    Saturday April 11 - 156.7 - I had ribs last night even though I said that I will try not to have them again for 3 months. I expect this weight to hang on for a few days or climb more. They were Memphis rub and very delicious. I have 2 more packs still in the freezer, but I will try not to touch them - for at least a month, but better if it is 3 months.
    Sunday April 12 - 155.7
    Monday April 13 - 156.3 - 1200 calories left over from yesterday due to time for extra workouts, I expect a drop.
    Tuesday April 14 - 157.5 - Not giving up, I am way more on track now that I don't have a job, working out more, eating better. Maybe tomorrow's weigh-in : - )
    Wednesday April 15 - 155.5 - Better. Almost back to the beginning of the month weight. Time to surpass that.
    Thursday April 16 - 154.9 - That is more like it. Quite honestly, I awoke very early to a pound more than that, so went back to bed again and then got this number.

    NOTES - so frustrating! This can either still be water retention from Saturday or that I’m halfway through my ovulation cycle which I tend to gain a little at this time. Either way it’s so damned frustrating. I did so much better yesterday and still doing my workouts. Whatever.

    I'm in. I'm Chris. 70 years old. Had back surgery last June and hip surgery last month. Used to do 5 miles a day w/DH but I've been grounded for a very, very long time. Getting back to it tho. Weight is going crazy with the shelter in place but I'll get back to that too.

    NOTES - well at least it’s coming back down. I’m so over going up and down the same few lbs. Still doing IF and have done ok with logging my food with the exception of a couple of days where I didn’t. Drinking my water and doing my morning 5K runs.

    I hear you @mari_moulin
    I first hit this weight last October.
    I hope that you are able to get back into the 180s and stay there awhile.
    My tracker keeps saying that I will be 139 in 5 weeks, but it has been saying that for many months. 149 would be a good start. Long way for me to go yet to get to my UG.
    I guess that we just have to stay the course and stay on track.

    I first hit this weight last October.
    I hope that you are able to get back into the 180s and stay there awhile.
    My tracker keeps saying that I will be 139 in 5 weeks, but it has been saying that for many months. 149 would be a good start. Long way for me to go yet to get to my UG.
    I guess that we just have to stay the course and stay on track.

    I’ve been lingering at my current weight since December last year. I’ve just been going up and down the same few lbs and right when I think I going down again I shoot right back up. I am up 20 lbs from my lowest weight and have been here unable to make it go back down. I almost feel like my body is too happy at my current weight and it just refuses to move. It’s so discouraging and frustrating. I just feel like giving up at times and just saying it is what it is. But I want to reach my goals I work my butt off daily. I’m far from perfect so I get why I would have slow losses but ......no losses is bumming me out.
