    Thanks @nikkit321
    :):)

    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2"
    MFP Start weight Oct 28.18 - 191
    UGW 110-115-ish
    Daily weighing keeps me accountable, prevents me from a few extra snacks the night before, and shows trends of perhaps what to avoid or limit in order to succeed at weight loss.

    WEEK ONE:
    Thursday 4/1: 132.3 - It would be great to touch the 120s this month
    Friday 4/2: 133.8 - wrong direction
    Saturday 4/3: 133.7 - Expecting a woosh, feeling lean today, I had thought that the scale would have been kinder today : - )

    WEEK TWO:
    4/4: 133.1 - Not exactly the woosh back to the 131s that I was getting last month, but I will stay at it.
    4/5:
    4/6: 134.3 - No reason for this gain.
    4/7: 133.7 - I have been steadfast, but my schedule is going to be turned upside down today so I will need a new strategy.
    4/8: 132.6 - Almost back to my start weight for the month.
    4/9: 133.2 - 3am weigh in, but I wanted to get on with my coffee and water, so weighed. Maybe I will be less tomorrow if I can sleep longer.
    4/10: 132.1 - Much better

    WEEK THREE:
    4/11: - 133.8 - Huge jump. All I can think of is that I had some marinated Prawn Skewers for dinner last night from a deli counter, perhaps they were full of salt? They were low in calorie.
    4/12: 132.4 - Close to my start weight, maybe tomorrow.
    4/13: 133.7 - I have to take these fluctuations in stride. I was very late home from work, thus a late dinner. Calories and exercise were on point.
    4/14: 133.3 - Another very late dinner, but I had to eat. Calories and exercise on track. A couple of more days of this and then some days off from multiple jobs.
    4/15: 132.1 - That is more like it.
    4/16: 131.5 - First time seeing this number. Yay!
    4/17: 133.3 - Expected the jump, I indulged in my monthly feast of Ribs. I will work it back down

    WEEK FOUR:
    4/18: 133.1 - Coming back down post ribs dinner.
    4/19: 134.2 - Ouch
    4/20: 133.0 - I really never take those fluctuations very well. I hadn't seen the 134s in awhile and have no desire to revisit them again!
    4/21: 132.9 - Still above my start weight with 9 more weigh days to go. My schedule is new, that might be part of it. This monthly format is great!
    4/22: 133.1 - Going to be indulgent tonight and possibly tomorrow too.
    4/23: 132.4 - Almost back to the month's start weight. I have added a new job into my mix of gig work, and have been battling a sore shoulder for a few weeks. The weather here is rainy mixed with a bit of snow, so walking trails are out for me right now - rain is forecast until April 30th. Not that I have really had the time anyway. Any tips on relieving a sore shoulder are welcome!
    4/24: 133.5 - I was a bit indulgent

    WEEK FIVE:
    4/25: 134.3 - Going to try my best to get this back down.
    4/26
    4/27
    4/28
    4/29
    4/30

    April starting weight: 190.8 oh dear Lord:#:(
    April goal: be more intentional so I can end the month lighter than where I start:
    - more intentional movement throughout the day
    - plan meals ahead
    - WATER
    - run 3x/week and walk the other days

    4/1 T - 190.8 Going to try a run today after some yoga stretches; haven't ran for a week so fingers crossed my calf muscles have improved. Dinner: beef roast and veg. Update: ran 10min, legs started cramping so walked 5, ran 5, walked 5, ran 5. Total 20m run, and I'm ok with that.
    4/2 F - 190.8 Updated with yesterday's run info. Today planning on a walk, will run again tomorrow.
    4/3 S - 190.6 ran 10, walked 5, ran 10, walked 5, ran 5; total 25m run. Feeling much better in the calves since I'm not running two days straight. Sometimes I forget my age...
    4/4 S - 193.8 ugh Chinese from Friday hit

    4/5 M - 190.6 3 rounds of 10min runs, felt good. Egg & avocado for dinner.
    4/6 T - 188.2 walk today, planning to run again Thursday. Beef roast & broccoli salad.
    4/7 W - 188.2 walking with the dogs today, loving the beautiful weather! dinner is egg/avo/salsa
    4/8 T - 186.4 surprised at this number but not holding my breath that it'll stick around tomorrow. I really pushed water yesterday, made good food choices; will do the same today. Planning a run today of 3 rounds of 10m along with walking the dogs in between rain spells. Dinner is beef roast and veg.
    4/9 F - 185.2 what???? Perhaps the fresh air walking with the dogs is helping? I don't know - maybe it's because I walk with the dogs am, noon, and evening so the burn is spread thru the day? No clue...I really hope I can hold onto the number thru the weekend, which is by far my weak point. The husky is yelling at me right now for the morning walk, so off I go!
    4/10 S - (run)
    4/11 S -

    Run plan for the week: 3 run intervals of 10m w/ 5m walk breaks (reduced walk from 10m to 5m)
    4/12 M - (run) 188.2 so I've proven that logging on the weekend is critical, and also that gluten is my enemy. If I want to succeed I have to change what I'm doing (or not doing).
    4/13 T - 187.8 good run yesterday, reduced my walk intervals and amazingly enough struggled more with breathing than I did with my legs. Walked 2 miles with the dogs outside, and another 3 on the treadmill.
    4/14 W - 189.2 absolutely no idea why, guess it's my dear friend water retention again. zumba tonight and hope to get the dogs out.
    4/15 T - 188.0 My run will be 3 rounds of 10m again; this week I dropped my walk interval from 10m to 5m
    4/16 F - 187.2 nice surprise this morning, now I just have to stay focused; heading out of town with my sister today and tomorrow, need to stay focused on my goals
    4/17 S - no weigh in since out of town
    4/18 S - 188.8

    Run plan for the week: 3 run intervals of 11m w/ 4m walk breaks
    4/19 M - (run) 190.8 here I am, back at my beginning weight. Will run and sweat today, and drink a ton of water!
    4/20 T - 189.8 glug glug
    4/21 W - (zumba) 188.2
    4/22 T - (run) 190.2
    4/23 F - 187.2
    4/24 S - (run)

    Run plan for the week: 3 run intervals of 12m w/ 3m walk breaks
    4/25 S - 191.0 can you say "gluten"???? Yep, my own fault, had pizza last night. Did my run though, felt good, went well.
    4/26 M - (run)
    4/27 T -
    4/28 W -
    4/29 T - (run)
    4/30 F -

    4/26 M - 189.8 should be warmer today so will get the dogs out for a walk. Tired of the never-ending winter that's starting to resemble the movie Groundhog Day. I think Indiana had Winter #4 last week with 5 inches of snow.
