    I'm Jacquie - 59 years old from Canada. My goal is to lose the 15 lbs that have crept back on over the past two years. I'm looking forward to being accountable each day to help get back on track. I enjoy working out so didn't add any exercise goals but want to work on logging consistently and accurately and staying within my calorie goal each day.

    2022 goals:

    ⚫️Lose .5 pounds each week
    ⚫️Reach my goal weight of 130 lbs

    Daily Goals:

    ♥️Plan my meals and snacks each day
    ♥️Log consistently and accurately
    ♥️Eat within my calorie goal
    ♥️Avoid mindless snacking

    Highest weight: 170 lbs
    Current weight: 145.6 lbs

    February 1— 145.6
    February 2 - 144.4
    February 3 - 144.6
    February 4 - 144.8
    February 5 - 143.0 (???-think maybe from dehydration or because I ate dinner early yesterday)
    February 6 - 143.4 (Yeah! Stayed down in 143s!)
    February 7 - 144.6 (Sigh... didn't last! But take out Chinese food with friends yesterday was fun! And I felt good about the amounts I ate - even if it doesn't show up on the scale)
    February 8 - 143.6 (Yeah!)
    February 9 - 142.6

    My goals, which haven't changed from last month, include (from most difficult to the easiest)
    🚦 Getting started
    🥤 Drinking more water than diet soda
    🥅 Staying within my calorie limits
    📚☕ Making sure I get some “me time”
    😅🚶‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♀️ Exercising daily (at least 20 minutes total - not always an accurate time since I don't have a fitness watch. I use my phone, and I'm not allowed to have my phone with me during the day at work, so this category won't get a "thumbs up" unless I'm sure I've hit that 20 minute mark)
    📔 Tracking every meal
    ⚖️ Weighing daily is a given for me, so this will be the easiest one for me. I'm hoping to make it into the 180s by the end of February, and stay out of the 190s.

    Highest Weight: Somewhere between 227-230... I don't know. I avoided the scale.
    Return to MFP after ~ 5-6 year absence (June 11, 2020) = 216.9
    Final weight (January 31, 2022) = 193.2 (+1.6 from my January starting weight :disappointed: )
    Starting weight for this challenge (February 1, 2022) = 194.2

    🚦 Ready... set.... GO!
    01/31/2022 - ⚖️ 193.2
    02/01/2022 – ⚖️ 194.2 (+1.0 from yesterday/+0.0 from first day of current month/-22.7 from rejoining MFP) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔 - Eating stress and emotions again... Not good.
    02/02/2022 – ⚖️ 195.4 (+1.2 / +1.2 / -22.5) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/03/2022 – ⚖️ 195.2 (-0.2 / +1.0 / -22.7) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/04/2022 ¬ ⚖️ 196.2 (+1.0 / +2.0 / -20.7) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/05/2022 – ⚖️ 195.2 (-1.0 / +1.0 / -21.7) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/06/2022 – ⚖️ 196.6 (+1.4 / +2.4/ -20.3) - 😅🚴🏻‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/07/2022 – ⚖️ 197.8 (+1.2 / +3.6/ -19.1) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔 - Sigh... BMI is back into obese range. I do have to say that, when I lost the weight I lost, people would tell me "Oh, I bet you feel so much better." I'd reply, "No, not really... I don't feel like anything's changed." Well, let me tell you, going the other way? I can definitely feel the change and it's not good.
    02/08/2022 – ⚖️197.5 (-0.3/+3.3/-19.4) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔
    02/09/2022 – ⚖️198.5 (-0.3/+3.3/-19.4) - 🚶‍♀️📚☕📔🥅 - Holy *kitten*! I hit my calorie goal today! I'm shocked. We went grocery shopping tonight. I made good choices as far as food but I had to really fight the desire for something sweet, settling for sugar-free jello instead of donut holes or cookies. Sigh.....

    ♥️❤️February Challenge❤️♥️

    I’m Christine and I’ve been on and off MFP. Year 2022 for me is the year where I fully commit to making better choices for a healthier and happier me. I have already made one major change almost 4 years ago and that was to give up smoking, of course as most fear I did gain weight on top of weight I was not already happy with in the first place. My goal going forward is 1 pound loss a week, which would put me at 180 pounds.

    Joining this group a little late, but you know what they say-Better late than never!

    Daily Goals:

    ♥️Log honestly and consistently
    ♥️Eat at or under my calorie goal
    ♥️Get 30 minutes of exercise each day
    ♥️Drink and log more water

    Highest weight: 230
    Current weight:226.1
    February weight lost so far: 2.2 lbs

    February 1—224.6
    February 2—225.4
    February 3—227.9
    February 4—226.8
    February 5—227.7
    February 6—227.2
    February 7—227.7
    February 8—226.1 (Mastered 10-8oz glasses of water today--yippee!)
    February 9—225.0 (Streak 3 days of logging in!)
    February 10—225.5 (Streak 3 days logging in and 2 days streak of logging 80oz of H2O)

    145320379.png

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s

    Starting Weight (from January 31st): 197.0
    Goal: 192.0 (Five lb Loss)


    **************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME**************************

    02/01…...197.0…..(Trend Weight 195.1)….. Pro: No change. There’s that! Con: Only 28 days to get something done!

    02/02.…..197.4…..(Trend Weight 195.3)….. Meals good. Snacks bad. No TMI and exercise ziltch but the renovation is moving along, although slowly.

    02/03.…..195.8…..(Trend Weight 195.4}….. No better on the exercise due to the restrictions, but meals were much better planned. Quantities much better too. Pushing water today as tonight’s homemade Mexican food will likely be high in sodium.

    02/04.…..196.4…..(Trend Weight 195.5)….. Sodium from the Mexican I presume because otherwise the day was not bad. I did hit a record low on calories burned, miles walked and steps according to my fitbit. Fitness makes a big difference!

    02/05.…..196.4…..(Trend Weight 195.6)….. Full-on BINGE last night. Probably the worst I’ve ever experienced. I don’t even know what triggered it. Nothing showed up on the scale yet this morning, but I know it’s coming…..

    02/06.…..194.6…..(Trend Weight 195.5)….. This is the first time in awhile (I only checked records back to 3 weeks) that my trend weight has went down. Thrilled because that means that something is really happening! A nice drop on the scale this morning too. I’m surprised that the binge hasn’t shown up yet. Maybe I’ll luck out on this one. No matter! I’m running with it. It makes me feel encouraged today.

    02/07.…..195.4…..(Trend Weight 195.5)….. I had a very good day yesterday. Dietary was on point. More steps and activity than I’ve been able to get lately. The uptick is likely from a few days ago but I’m not worried since I’ve been doing well since then.

    02/08.…..193.4…..(Trend Weight 195.3)….. Three squares and some sugar-free candy for a snack. Upped the steps to 8700 but calorie burn was about the same as the days prior. This is a whoosh.

    02/09.…..193.4…..(Trend Weight 195.1)….. Holding steady and happy for that. I don’t expect loss everyday, so no gain is good and the path I’m on is the right one.

    02/10.…..196.0…..(Trend Weight 195.2)….. A good day, but pizza for dinner shocked my scale this morning. It is ridiculous how fast the scale flies up! It was very salty tasting so I will push water today.


    02/11.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..
    02/12.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..
    02/13.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..

    Donna, @deepwoodslady
    Pizza is always 2 pounds for me the next day or two while the real weight impact is closer to .25. As you say...salt!

    Laughing about all the pizza comments as I had the same experience this week.
    Ate pizza Sunday the 6th and I was up 3 on the scale the next morning!
    Back down to below where I was before I ate the pizza (and dropped slowly every day between then and now).
    I love the data we get when we weigh every day!
