    My name is Donna and I am from the Great Midwest in the USA
    Age: Almost 61. Height 5 feet 5.5 inches when I stand up very straight (I’ve shrunk!)
    I like to weigh in on the 1st and the very last day of each month, but otherwise follow the leader.

    Original starting weight - 253
    March Ending Weight – 208.2
    April goal – 203.2
    Ultimate goal – 145-155 (We’ll see when I get there)

    1st – 207.6 I am THRILLED that this challenge is back. It is one of my favorites! Thank you @tiabirdie56 for letting me know. Good luck everyone!
    8th- 208.2 Frustrating as my eating has mainly been on target and my movement has increased. Banging head on the wall here.
    15th – 207.6 This finds me a bit lower than last week. I know my diet must improve. My exercise or movement has remained good.
    22nd - 207.2 Covid shot #2 today so I’m feeling a bit tired. I experienced some extra travel this week so I’m grateful that the scale is still below last week. I know I can try harder and do better. I have lots of tools in my toolbox, I just need to sharpen the blades and get to work!
    29th – 207.2 I am still down from the start but I am disappointed with my overnight jump on the scale. It had actually been a good day yesterday but there may be some water retention based on my choices, even though they were within calorie and carb range. My last weigh-in is tomorrow. I always do an entire month on the challenge. Let’s hope the water weight drops.
    30th - xxxxx
    Total loss for April –
    Final Challenge thoughts: Okay, so my birthday is May 10th. I want to give myself a present of a consistent trend of healthy weight loss!

    I did reach my previous UGW of 110 lbs in August 2020 but gained weight every month since and I felt 110 lbs was too low.

    I've found my new UGW (maintenance) aim of 115 to 120 lbs. I'm using Fitbod app in hopes of slowly gaining muscle as I reach for my new maintenance goal.


    Original starting weight - 147.4 lbs - Nov 2017
    April starting weight - 128.4
    April goal - 125.4

    Ultimate goal - 115 to 120
    Height - 5 ft
    Age Range: 30s

    1st - 128.8
    8th - 130.6 ... Workout 4 completed
    15th - 128.6 ... attempting to count again... Calories In 1605 Calories Out 1726 ... 8,592 steps
    22nd - 127.4 ... Calories In 1472 Calories Out 1832 ... 10,259 steps ... Workout 10 completed
    24th - 126.8 ... Calories In 2000ish Calories Out 1855... 11,476 steps ... day full of delicious sodium but Workout 11 completed
    25th - 129.2 ... Calories In 1544 Calories Out 1719 ... 8,190 steps
    29th - 127 ... Calories In 1417 Calories Out 1753 ... 8,352 steps
    30th - 125.6 ... What! I weighed myself 3 times, it was true! Workout 13 completed! (2 more workouts than last month.)

    Total loss for April: 2.8 lbs :D

    Workout Log with Fitbod app:

    I've added a few days above since I track daily to show that weight loss is never linear.

    Great job everyone! Let's keep on! <3
