    Hi everyone. Been struggling a bit a few days off plan but I'm back to it today. And ofc TOM shows up yesterday! I'm at my highest weight and I'm not happy about it at all so here goes to intermittent fasting, calorie counting, drinking lots of water and some exercise! 😁

    Hey folks, wow you have all been so busy! It's so inspiring to see you all turning up and working on yourselves. Thanks for being here and again for the thread.

    So I seem to be standing still for now but I'm ok with that as overall I'm down since the start of the month and just turning up for myself was my goal this month. I did also have a friend visit this week so I was more relaxed with food and I'm only just getting back moving (but that's also awesome after nearly a month of not walking/kayaking etc, but wow I was sore after that first walk!).

    SW: 220 lbs
    GW: 154 lbs

    Feb 3rd: 220 (SW)
    Feb 13th: 211.6 (-8.4)
    Feb 20th: 214 (+2.4)
    Feb 27th 214 (no change)

    Feb: -6lbs (and I'll take it!)

    Now to figure out next month's goal, I'll most likely go with being 4lbs down and movement. I'm planning my first kayaking outing for Tuesday, the weather has been pretty stormy and it's due to calm down for Tuesday which is great (it'll still be super cold, but I can handle that).

    Thanks again all and see you next month!

    SW: 287.4 (7/16/2021)
    CW: 226.4 (2/1/2022)

    GW for February: 221
    GW for 2022: 170
    UGW: 170

    2/5: 226.2 (but saw 225 yesterday!)
    2/12: 222.8
    2/19: 222.2

    Not much to report this week. Work is still crazy busy, and kids were out of school for the week. I managed to mostly stick with my deficit, but just barely. If I didn't do my workout in the mornings, my step counts probably wouldn't have passed 3000. Looking forward to getting back to normal soon.

    Goals for February:
    - Meet protein goal at least 3x weekly βœ”οΈ 3 of 7
    - Meet fiber goal at least 3x weekly βœ” 5 of 7
    - Eat out no more than 1x per week βœ” Ate out 1 time last week.
    - Get minimum of 6000 steps daily ❌ 2 out of 7 - really missed the ball on this goal. Too much time at the computer 😞
    - Drink minimum of 8 glasses water daily ❌ 6 of 7

    Goals for 2022:
    - Incorporate weight training and work on improving my muscle definition: 2 out of 2 days planned
    - Reach my goal weight and move into maintenance: With my slow down, looks like this will be cutting it close. Forecasting sometime in Dec
    - Plan for and make self care a priority at least quarterly (massage, mani/pedi, etc) : Need to schedule it sometime this month

    Age: 36!
    HT: 5'9"
    GW: 165ish
    NSV: Goal: Trail run 6+ miles at a time without needing to walk
    HW (Dec 21'): 214

    1st GW (Feb 4th (B-day)): 196 (already surpassed)

    2nd GW March 1st : 186lbs

    January: 207.1 - 194.4 (-12.5lbs)

    2/5 : 193 (-1.4) I actually saw 191.8 two days ago but my endless birthday celebrations have me retaining water.
    2/12: 193.8 (+0.8) still celebrating πŸ₯³
    2/19: 191.8 (-2)
    2/26: 189.2 (-2.6)

    Well, not gonna hit my goal for march 1st of being 186 but I’m heading in the right direction. I’ve been at a trade show all week and not able to find anything non-fried so it’s been a challenge putting in 13 hour days and not eating good. On a positive note, I’m still alcohol free! Even after 2 nights of sponsored events where all the booze was free. That’s 54 days straight with no alcohol which as some of you know is a great accomplishment for me!

    I bought a couple pairs of jeans in November. One was a 34 and the other a 33. I’m down so much I went out and bought 31s. Cool thing is that I also had to buy long now. Everything is changing. I am down 2-3 inches across all body parts and over 25lbs now!

    Here’s to march! πŸ₯‚

    UGW-122 lbs. I was there in 2009/10 and kept it off for 5 years then got lazy.

    My goal is to continue with what seems to work for me. 1000-1200 calories, low carb 15 Net +/- 3(My body seems to not do well with carbs. It doesn't know how to burn them and hangs onto them way too much!), minimum 70 + oz of water, 2 meals/day on my days off(3) and 3 meals on my work days(which are long), exercise on my 3 days off. My weigh in day is Sunday.

    9/14/20 SW-255 lbs

    6/1/21-228.8 lbs
    7/1/21-222.2 lbs
    8/1/21-212.0 lbs
    9/1/21-200.0 lbs
    10/1/21-191.4 lbs
    11/1/21-181.8 lbs
    12/1/21-176.2 lbs
    12/26/21-165.6 lbs
    1/1/22-168 lbs
    My goal is 5 lbs for February.
    2/1/22-157.4 lbs

    Down 100 lbs so far!

    Have been MIA from this and a couple other threads this month. Posting my updated weights though today.

    2/1/22-157.4 lbs
    2/6/22-158.4 lbs
    2/13/22-156.4 lbs
    2/20/22-157.6 lbs
    2/25/22-155 lbs. FINALLY!!! 100 lbs LOST!!! Sure I won't make the 5 lbs for February. Have to go back and catch up on all your postings. I have been working 60-65 hours/week since Christmas.

    2/27/22-156 lbs. Don't like this nor understand it. I have done more exercise than usual, stayed below my allotted calories and drank plenty of water and not increased sodium either.

    Age: 26
    Height: 5'10"
    SW: 246.9
    GW: 165.0
    February SW: 201.6
    February GW: 195-197
    Total pounds lost: 47.6
    Pounds until GW: 34.3

    Feb 1: 201.6
    Feb 8: 201.2
    Feb 15: 199.4
    Feb 22: 198
    Feb 28: 199.3 (+1.3 pounds)

    Did not reach my weight loss goal this month. Wasn't feeling well this past week, so I didn't exercise and ate at maintenance. Weight "gain" is easily explained by waste in system/higher sodium intake, so I'm not really counting it as a gain.

    That said, I'm ending the month with some very positive accomplishments. 1) I'm still in one-derland! 2) I ran my fastest 1.5 mile time- 15 minutes 10 seconds. 3) I kept up with my friend group on a difficult 5 mile hike which included jumping across boulders and scaling small cliffsides. 4) I can synch my belt down to the next hole, even if it is a smidge too tight. Sticking to the more comfortable one until it no longer functions as a belt at that notch.

    I'm incredibly proud of myself this month. The plan is to get under 195 next month.
