    This was a little bit too fast. It worries me bc I have been struggling and struggling for years now with up and down and up and down. I am no good at moderation. I guess it is back to the therapist! Hahah! When I started I was 338lbs. Went down to 115.5 and was losing my hair, eating 800 calories a day and exercising for 2-3 hours a day. When to a great therapist but weight went back up to 160. Now I promised myself I would slowly, carefully get back to 122-125, in a healthy way. I am doing the right things- I think. I limit myself to running 45 min every day, 30 min of core stuff a day and measure even my carrots and grape tomatoes. When will I learn that we are children of God are all holy and beautiful at any weight?

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    June 30 starting weight - 148.0 (ten-day rolling average weight 148.8)
    August goal - 145
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight), and I post on Saturdays.


    July 31: 146.2 (10-day average 145.3)
    August 8: 145.8 (10-day average 144.8)
    August 15: 144.6 (10-day average 145.3)
    2August 22: 145.0 (10-day average 145.1)
    August 29:
    August 31:

    Total loss for August: According to my average, 1.6 ounces.

    My mass has been pretty steady all month right in the middle of my maintenance range. I am beginning to wonder if the goal weight I set for myself closer to the bottom of my goal range may be a fantasy. If I get there, great. If not, that's fine because I seem to be doing fine at my current mass.

    Hi, new user. I guess I had an account before but I don’t remember. Anyway, I’d love the accountability here. I hope this will be available in Sept too.
    I’ve done the yoyo (again). I didn’t go back to my highest weight, but I’d like to re-lose the weight.

    Starting weight: 146
    Goal weight: 125 (goal date Jan 11)
    Goal thought: I can cheat during holidays, but today, i can eat well.
