    Total weight loss/gain to date this month: + 0.4 pounds

    This is a pretty big swing for me for a week (+ 3 pounds). I never fully committed to my diet after travel. However, I really need to get this back under control as we're set to travel for the weekend and then in a couple more weeks.

    March 29: 227.50 I didn't use a yoyo much when I was a kid, but seem to be doing a lot of it as an adult! Having said that, I yoyoed a lot in my 240's and 230's then settled in so I'm hoping it's my way of stabilizing! :)

    Maybe you could just give the $20 to the non-profit and skip the burger? Or find someone to share it with?
    Do you have a food scale? If not, treat yourself to one. A digital one that weighs in grams can be found for twenty bucks. Then when you put your dinners together, you can track the ingredients. It's actually pretty easy, and then you can eat many wonderful things, but just not too much of them.

    I go out to dinner with family as a treat each year to enjoy burger month. Yes I could skip it but we're suppose to be able to enjoy life. This is times that I can enjoy the offerings of our great restaurants. I also donate to charities without eating food. I have a digital scale and know how to use it. I've just fallen off track a bit that's all. Enjoyed food a bit too much....during the cold & ugly winter/spring it's a comfort. Warm weather is coming so I'm not worried. Thanks.

    Female, 6 ft.
    [MFP Highest Weight: (8/2018): 268]
    [MFP Restart Weight: (8/30/22): 243.4]

    March Start Weight: 212 lbs
    March Goal Weight: 208 lbs
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 199


    March 6: 210.6 (-1.4 lbs)
    March 18: 208.8 (-1.8 lbs)
    March 22: 207.8 (-1 lb)
    March 31: 208.6 (+0.8)

    March Total Loss: -3.4 lbs***

    So close to my goal weight of 199. I can't even claim water weight. According to my height, 6ft. I need to be at 184, I hopefully will figure it out. MFP gets a lot of flack, but it definitely works, 268 to 208.6. Almost 60 pounds.
