    January Starting Weight: 194.7
    February Starting Weight: 196.1
    March Starting Weight: 189.8
    April Starting Weight: 187.0
    April Goal Weight: 183.0

    Stats: 44 y/o female, 2x cancer survivor with Hypothyroidism dealing with menopause, plantar fasciitis, bone spurs, and rosacea - not to be used as excuses, but to be reminders of being kind to my body and accepting of its journey.

    Goals: Drink 96 oz. of water, daily stretching and PT exercise, start weight lifting, increase walking.

    4/01: 187.0
    4/02: 186.7 - Woo-Hoo! I nailed my calories yesterday. Off to a good start!
    4/03: 185.0 - A long day at work with no time to drink any water.
    4/04: 186.1 - Evening back out with increased fluids.
    4/05: 184.7 - Surprised by this number. Thinking I am still dehydrated.
    4/06: 185.2 - Evening back out again.
    4/07: 187.0 - I have no idea. Perhaps the extra carbs and sugar, as I had allowed myself a cake snack and had baked beans for lunch.

    I am Dawn. 61, 5'2"
    I joined MFP October 28.18 at 191
    I averaged a 1 pound loss per month, so very slow.

    My ideal healthy weight by plugging in my numbers (height, age, measurements etc.) is 110-118

    I was close to the 120s in February of 2021 at 130.6.
    I was 131.1 in September of 2021. I somehow gained quite a bit since then, but in March of 2022 I did a cleanse to reset my body and eating habits and ended up with a small loss at the end of the month, the first loss in a long time.

    3/31 - 135.2
    4/01 - 137.4 - 2.2 pounds overnight?? I had a healthy and active day yesterday, so hoping that it is just a weird fluctuation. I am still going to use my EW from March as my start weight for this month though. No point (in my mind) of counting a loss if it is not cumulative.
    4/02 - 136.2 - Terrible day eating wise, I was so busy, then stressed, so basically didn't eat all day and then ate a bit but nothing nutritious. I will try to do better today.
    4/03 - 137.0 - Very early weigh in, I feel leaner than that. Up and down is normal for me though. I will get lots of activity in today, my day off, and will have time for healthy food prep.
    4/04 - 136.4 - Not a very good day for nutrition. Calories and activity were good.
    4/05 - 137.6 - ?? Such as it goes. Lots of workouts, good food choices.
    4/06 - 137.2 - Lots of workouts, good food choices, but very long workday and didn't finish dinner until midnight. Tonight will be the same.
    4/07 - 137.0 - It has been a busy work week for me with a couple of late nights. Food choices could be a bit better, but not bad overall.

    Run when the sun shines.

    I don't mind a little rain on a run - But when it's early spring and there have not been too many pretty days yet, I wish the pretty ones were running days :)

    April Starting weight: 147.2
    April goal. 143

    4/01 -147.2
    4/02 -146.6 Stayed within calories.
    4/03 -146.0
    4/04 -145.8
    4/05 -145.4 Stayed within calories, but definitely didn't get enough water yesterday. I don't generally eat my exercise calories back, my weight loss will basically stop if I do.
    4/06 -145.2 Very surprised I had a drop. Took my grandson to swim lessons and then we stopped at Wendys for lunch before heading home.
    4/07 -145.2 Did not get enough sleep last night, and I've got a busy day today.
    4/08 -145.0 I've been eating on the run, I need to make better food choices.

    I don't run (well maybe 20 steps at a time during my hikes/walks) but yes, you runners seems to run no matter the weather.
    I rearrange my schedule where I can to get out to the trails when the weather is favourable.
    Could you just make the pretty days running days? Lol, I obviously don't know how this works in the running world, perhaps you need a rigid schedule.
    My whole life feels largely dependent on weather. I had such a busy work week when the weather was perfect and I just couldn't get out to the trails, I am hopeful that it will be nice out on my weekend days off. If not it will be indoor workouts for me.
    We are so far flung here geographically, and weather really does seem to make a difference to our activity levels.

    Height 5'4" Age:52
    Ultimate Goal Weight 127-134 lbs.

    April Start Weight: 189.4 lbs.
    April Goal Weight: 182.4 lbs.
    April Goals: Running 3 x per week, Work on core/hip strength, Mindful Way of Eating, Daily Accountability

    4/01- 189.4 lbs. Rest Day...not great with calories today
    4/02- 189.2 lbs. Nice Running Day + 30 minutes of core/hip strength training
    4/03- 189.2 lbs. Active Recovery Day planned + doing some household organizing & menu planning for the week ahead.
    4/04 -188.9 lbs. Easy day yesterday, good food choices & into bed early (early for me at least). Good way to start this new week! Lots of rain expected this week (after today) which will cause some shuffling to my running plans but hoping for the best!
    4/05 - 188.4 Good running day yesterday + 30 minutes of core/hip strength training. Very little sleep last night, due to aching joints but surprising feel okay this morning. This is the last sunny day this week before the rainy days start but this is an active recovery day for me, so won't get to enjoy the good running weather instead have a short body strength workout planned and lots of yoga stretching.
    4/06 - 188.2 Went to bed super early last night, which was much needed! Being overtired yesterday, led to ordering pizza instead of cooking my planned dinner, but I was mindful of what I was eating and logged it and stayed within my calorie range. Yesterday was an active recovery day so worked on agility & balance strength movements and yoga-based stretches for hips and hamstrings. Waiting for the rain to ease up today, and then I'll get a run in.
    4/07 - 188.2 Really thought there was going to be a big drop on the scale this morning, maybe tomorrow! Feels like a whoosh is coming :) Today is a non-running cardio day + maybe some weight training.
    4/08 - DNW..my husband was still taking a shower this morning (where the scale is) when I needed to weigh-in, so no stats to post today. Ended up taking yesterday as a rest day (originally scheduled for today), so re-working my exercise plan for the remainder of the week - think today will be a running day.

    We are so far flung here geographically, and weather really does seem to make a difference to our activity levels.

    If I am training for a specific race or event then I run no matter the weather (except lightening) because I am usually on a strict timeline and you never know what race day conditions will be so it is helpful to train in a variety of conditions. If I don't have a goal race, then I'm super flexible with when I run. Currently, I am easing back into running after an injury in November and I only run 3 days a week and my body needs those days to be non-consecutive to aid in injury prevention. Makes it a little tricker to shuffle for weather, but I'm so happy to be running again, that it's all good!

    April goal: 195
    UGW: 145


    3/31 - 198.4 planning a treadmill walk and logging food choices
    4/1 - 198.0 rest day, dinner out with my husband and not sure where we're going yet but plan is a hunk o'meat + veg.
    4/2 - 197.8 no exercise
    4/3 - 197.4 3.5 mile run/walk with my son, we managed to beat the rain. Lunch out (salmon, broccoli, salad); dinner was a big mac salad (lettuce, spinach, ketchup, mustard, ranch, hamburger patty & swiss)
    4/4 - 199.9 ??????????? chili soup for dinner (hamburger, 3 rinsed cans of different beans, vegetable juice, 2 can of tomatoes+chiles, cauliflower rice, and add avocado when serving). It's raining and 45 today, so I'll be putting a few miles on the treadmill instead of outside.
    4/5 - ??
    4/6 - ? ran/walked 3 miles w/ son, then walked dogs another mile
    4/7 - ? walked 2 miles w/ dogs
    4/8 - 199.9 I'm sure I've been making entries but perhaps I don't manage to actually post? Sorry I've been MIA again. Cold, rainy/slushy mix here in Indiana today, makes my ankle hurt (probably arthritis). Taking a rest day, will make smart food choices. Today is my 31 year anniversary with my employer...yikes that makes me feel really old!
