    Hello everyone,

    Sadly, no change from last week, but at least I didn't gain! Here are the scale stats from this morning:

    I'm hoping to lose at least 2 lbs. this week.

    Best to all!

    Hi, I'm Jude. I'm 67 YO, 5' 2"
    My history includes large swings in weight with up to 50 lb weight gains. My goal for 2024: to change the habits that hurt me and learn how to integrate and maintain healthy eating habits for good.

    June: 6 months into this challenge! I've been consistent this time (compared to the previous 60+ years;-) and am learning what "maintenance" means. My downfall in the past was to lose the weight and fall right back into the habits of a lifetime; it finally occurred to me I have to change.
    1/1/24: 147 lbs
    2/1: 138.6
    3/1: 135.0
    4/1: 130.2
    5/1: 124.6
    6/1: 125.0
    Previous months:
    January goals:
    * continue my exercise routine- which has been pretty good
    * eliminate evening snacking- which is my downfall
    * weigh every day- which I avoid and then gain
    * log in here every week on Monday so I can't pretend the weekend is "free"!

    1/1: 146.6
    1/8: 142.6
    1/15: 141.4
    1/22: 140.2 (a day early, we're away and traveling tomorrow)
    1/29: 139.2
    Starting weight: 146.5

    Goal weight: around/under 142
    Actual: 139.2
    Loss: 7.4 lbs


    February goals:
    * continue exercise routine, weighing and logging- I know what works, now do it.
    * continue to make good choices every day, enjoy food appropriately and within healthy numbers.
    2/5: 137.2
    2/12: 136.8
    2/19: 135.0
    2/26: 134.2
    Starting weight: 139.2
    Goal weight: around/under 136
    Actual: 134.2
    Loss: 5.0 lbs


    March goals:
    * stick with the plan, it gets harder to lose as I get closer to the goal
    * enjoy all our March birthdays and be conscious of portions
    * continue to log consistently
    3/4: 135.0 (birthday dinners!)
    3/11:132.8
    3/18: 131.4

    The Plan (so far):
    [Reestablishing my earlier habits]
    1. Weigh myself, record, and reflect daily
    2. Track all food prior to eating (except my standard breakfast, which I can record before lunch.

    SW 1/1/2016 228
    In a maintenance: over 5 years until extreme stress May 2023 followed by a severe fracture.) Motivated to get to 166 by the New Year. (about 2lbs per month) I felt better before & carrying less weight should be easier on my body.

    6/3 179.1 (gained wt last month with visitors & my addiction to eating out) Time to address this!
    6/10 179.1 okay, good that I’m only up 0.6lbs since Jan 1. But time to nudge scale down. Developed a significantly higher distance walking program this week which should help achieve my weight goal. Visitors have settled down & with my husband’s support, vanquishing the eating out habit. Not there yet, but improving.

    My name is Donna. I am 64 years old and I live in the Midwest of the US. I am 5’ 5” tall. My highest weight was 253 in 2016. My MFP start weight was 235 in 2018.


    Ultimate Goal Weight: 145-155 (I’ll know it when I get there!)
    Start Weight (from May 31st, 2024 ): 181.8
    Goal Weight: 177.8 (4 pound loss)

    End of Month Final Weight: xxxxx
    Total Lost/Gained this Month: xxxxx





    Weight in blue makes me blue because it’s a gain. Weight in fuchsia pink makes me feel cheery because it’s a loss. Weight in black means no change.


    06/01-182.4-(Trend Weight: 185.3)-

    06/03-184.6-(Trend Weight: 185.2)- Not too bad of a day yesterday. I stayed within calorie though my carbs were over target. I used the exercise bike for 32 minutes and I did a lot of deep cleaning in the house. Up today on the scale but its probably catching up to the binges/splurges I had on night time snacks recently. Today I may head out of town for the planned trip of shopping. It depends when my drywall guy gets done for the day. I hate to go because I know that lunch or dinner will be out and it will just be another day of a heavier weight on the scale tomorrow. A rollercoaster I’d like to stop. However, I really would like to go and get it out of the way. The projects they are starting will keep them later the rest of the week. Regardless, I know I’ll be right back on top of my plan in the days following so I suppose it is what it is. Have a great week everyone. Crush it!

    06/10-DNW-(Trend Weight: DNW)- Not such a good day yesterday due to a celebration cake. We have one who graduated from Head Start to Kindergarten, one who graduated from Kindergarten to 1st grade and one going to 2nd grade. We celebrated it all at once with one cake and one gathering. The cake frosting was too sweet, I did remove about half of it. Today I have a special tradesman coming to use a “break” which puts the white metal around my bay window and my bow window. Otherwise, no work is being done inside today. It should be a good day for my pre-logged diet. I also plan on pulling a lot of weeds today as it’s getting out of hand. The lawn guy will be here to mow later this evening. I’m feeling a little lazy right now. Hopefully the coffee will kick in. Tomorrow I travel to the cardiologist and was hoping to show more progress than what I’ve been weighing of late. My own fault.

    06/17-xxxxx-(Trend Weight: xxxxx)-
    06/24-xxxxx-(Trend Weight: xxxxx)-
    06/30-xxxxx-(Trend Weight: xxxxx)-

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    Hey, I'm Crystal! ❤️ Goal for June is to get in the 150's! Still watching macros (1260 calories/day, low sugar around 100 carbs or less). Also continuing the increase of protein and to walk most days!

    5'4
    SW: 198 lbs (Oct. 2023)
    GW: 145-150 (By June, 2024)
    Feb 1st SW: 184.5
    March 1st SW: 176.8
    April 1st SW: 178.1
    May 1st: 170.2
    June 1st: 166.9
    Feb 1st: 184.5
    Feb 7th: 183.6
    Feb 14th: 182.1 (weight was 181.4 yesterday). I expected a little increase, as some ladies and I had a Gallentines party last night with all sorts of goodies and champagne 🍾
    Feb 21st: 180.6 yayyy! Still loving OMAD. I think this number could have been better because I didn't put all the work in I should have. I only walked 2 times this week. Also, my sleep has been awful. If I can do better about those things then I know the loss will be better. Still satisfied though.
    Feb 28th: 177.2 had a couple of very low calorie days the past week due to sickness but all is better now! Didn't get as many walks in as I planned, but I'm happy to see a good loss! (7.3 lbs lost total in February)
    March 6th: 176.6 I could have done better this past week. Looking back at the week, there were a lot of social outings. Had a bunch of junk that I didn’t need. (Pizza, fries, candy, burger etc). I know these things are ok sometimes but when it's several days in a row, it doesn't do me any good. Didn't stick with Omad the whole week either, or my calorie/carb goals. The plan for this next week is to stay on track with my goals and omad.
    March 13th: 176.1 I did have a better week this past week, so I was hoping for more of a loss. The only thing I can figure is that it could be that I'm not sleeping well. Only got decent sleep maybe half of the days. At least it's not a gain. Just a little discouraged.
    March 20th: 175.5 Sloww loss for sure. I've changed some things since last week. Added more protein in my diet and getting more steps in. Hopefully this will help.
    March 27th: 173.1 Thank goodness for more of a loss this week. I was starting to wonder if I was going to lose anymore. I added more protein in and am aiming to walk most days. I stopped OMAD too because I dont think I was eating enough protein with the 1 meal. I'm having a protein shake and a cucumber for lunch. Still fasting, but doing 16:8 and 2 meals/day. Doesn't look like I'll meet my goal of the 160's by the end of the month but hopefully soon.
    April 3rd: 174.8 I was traveling this past weekend and I had a 5lb gain from not tracking, eating all the foods I normally do not and several alcoholic beverages. Most of it has came back off thankfully but it's still upsetting that it set me a week behind. Next week will be better.
    April 10th: 172.0 Aiming for no cheat days in April, and at least 20 minutes of exercise each day. So far, so good 😀.
    April 17th: 170.2 I'm super excited about the loss but this really is almost overnight. I have been doing really well the past this whole month with no cheat days and haven't missed a day of exercise. The past 2 days I have barely had an appetite so my eating calories were really low. Might have a little gain but I'm hoping not!
    April 24th: 169.3 So happy to see the 160's 😀. Still keeping up with my goals each day. I feel like the loss was a little slow this week but it's still a loss. Today is my youngest boy's 6th birthday. We will celebrate Saturday and there will be pizza and cake. These kinds of things do make me nervous because I know it can set me back for days but I plan to still keep up with my calorie goals.
    May 1st: 170.2 😒 A mixture of things within the last week caused the gain- little sleep, eating out, cake etc.. I met my goals each day though in April and didn't miss a day of exercise, so I'm proud of that.
    May 8th: 166.9 😀 It's nice to pull out clothes that were too tight last year. I tried on the only bathing suit that I kept from last year and it was too big. Ordered me a new one and I love the way it fits. I'm now at a 31 lb loss since last October. Pushing through and keeping up with my goals each day!
    May 15th: 166.9 Got down a little lower several days ago. Lots of days with out to eat and fast food. Busy time of the year for us, which makes it harder for me to plan good meals. Still kept in my calories most of the week.
    May 22nd: DNW- beach vacation
    May 29th: 167.5 Little gain from not tracking and my food/drink choices at the beach.
    June 5th: 166.0 Back on track, yay!
    June 12th: 168.3 Boooo.. my fault, as I had a girls weekend away with no tracking. I ate and drank more than usual and no exercise. Working hard to get it back off.

    I'll weigh in on Saturdays to be on the same day as my other challenges (and the last day of the month).

    Jan 1: 163.8 Happy New Year!
    Jan 6: 162.8 😁
    Jan 13: 162 😁
    Jan 20: 161 😁
    Jan 27: 162.2 ☹️ Not the right direction
    Jan 30: 159.8 😁 Will be traveling January 31, so will not have access to a scale - so this is my official end of month weight.
    Total weight lost in January: 4.2 Pounds

    Feb 3: 160.6 Not as bad as I expected. Have been traveling and eating out every day since Jan 31.
    Feb 12: 159.8 😁 I am so happy with this - been on vacation since Jan 31 - got back yesterday and today weigh the same as I did when I left. Now to focus and lose some weight in February!
    Feb 18: 158.8 😁 Forgot to post on Saturday - but I was one more down!
    Feb 29: 156.8 😁 Nice way to end the month

    Total Weight Lost in February: 3 Pounds

    Mar 2: 156.8
    Mar 9: 154.8 😁
    Mar 16: 154.2 😁
    Mar 23: 153.4 😁 I am really liking this weekly weigh in, I flucuate so much daily and forget that it is actually a trend downward week to week.
    Mar 30: 152.6 😁

    Total Weight Lost in March: 4 Pounds

    Apr 6: 153 ☹️ My first up in a long time. Had a self sabatoge day yesterday - and expected this. Will have a tough week ahead (which probably caused my self sabatoge) with Easter tomorrow and then going on a small trip for two days.
    April 13: 151.6 😁 Worked super hard this week to get back to where I was!
    April 20: 150.6 😁Working hard in the garden uses a LOT of calories.
    April 28: 152 ☹️ Sad to see - but had trouble with my scale - bit the dust. The new one says a lot heavier than I would like to see - but it is what it is. First day with the new scale was 152.4 - so a little progress since then. Hoping at least to see a loss in April and looking forward to starting a fresh new month in May (two more days to leave April behind me!).
    April 30: 151.6

    Total Weight Lost in April - 1 Pound

    May 6: 150.2 😁 Got below my old scale weight. Went to the doctor this week. She was very happy with me. The new scale was right. I've probably been understating for a while.
    May 11: 150 😁 A little less than last week. I did see the 140 range this week, but just for split second.
    May 18: 150.6 ☹️ It has been a tough week. On Monday I threw out my knee - couldn't walk. Went to the doctor on Tuesday - xrays showed arthritis in both knees but that wouldn't be why I couldn't put any pressure on my leg. Dr. referred me for an MRI - which isn't scheduled until this Thursday - (a week and a half later), was concerend that it might be a meniscus tear . In the meantime - it is getting a little better, I can walk without crutches - probably just a sprain or something. Mostly seated exercises for now - did get in a short slow walk yesterday. Needless to say, the scale was not my friend. I'm thinking that my exercise tracker over estimates how many calories I burn in my seated workouts. With that in mind, yesterday adjusted how I am tracking - will not count ANY calories burned from exercise towards my calorie goal (I usually allow some (not all) - it's a complicated calculation that I won't bore you with). I would really like to see the 140s again by next week!
    May 26: 150.2 Had MRI, now the waiting game to get the results and follow-up appointment. Did get to the 140s but a slow creep back. Five more days to reach my goal.
    May 31: 149.6 I made it to the 140's!

    Total lost in May - 2 Pounds

    June 8: 146.2 😁 Great week. I bought two weeks of Nutrisystem food. They were having a free month of their advantage (a la carte) plan, so I thought I would give it a try to boost my slow loss the last couple of months. I started at the end of May. Could I do it long term? - absolutely not - I love to cook and the food is already getting boring. But it worked. I contributepart of the loss due to the fact that I am off the ibuprofen medication for me knee. The Dr. had me on 600 mg - 3 times a day. From what I read, it can cause water retention. I stopped taking about the same time as I started NS. My MRI results showed a meniscus tear with moderate arthritis. I got a cortizone shot, and will start physical therapy next Friday. In the meantime, still seated cardio workouts - but did get in a 1/2 mile walk yesterday.

    June 14: 145 😁 Anther good week. Very excited - we booked a last minute trip to Hawaii (leave Sunday). We have to drop off Allyson at JFK and said as long as we are there, why don't we use those frequent flyer miles that we have used in AGES! We found a good deal on a condo on VRBO - so have a full kitchen. My plan is to eat two meals in and go out for one. When I do go out - DON'T finish my plate - bring half home for breakfast or lunch the next day. Limit the alcohol. I won't let it be a free for all - I never came home from a vacation saying I wish I ate or drank more! Here on my findings on the Nutrisystem experiment.
    1. It works - I got over my plateau and continued to lose - lost almost 5 pounds in two weeks. 😁
    2. It was super easy to follow 😁 but, had we had to cook two meals daily - one for me, one for Greg. ☹️
    3. The food was edible - not fantastic, not gross 😐
    4. I did not meet my protein goal most days ☹️, but met carb, fat, sodium and fiber goals almost every day 😁.
    5. Most days the calories were about 1,350 - ranging from a little under 1,200 to 1,600. I wasn't hungry. 😁
    6. I ususally eat 5 fruits/veggies a day - but switched to 4 veggies one fruit on Nutrisystem. 😐
    6. It's doable as a quick fix, I couldn't do it long term. 😐
    7. Overall - I am extremely happy with the weight loss. So overall score! 😁 But am really looking forward to cooking again! 👩‍🍳
    8. Next step - see if I gain it all back?

    06/01-182.4-(Trend Weight: 185.3)-

    06/03-184.6-(Trend Weight: 185.2)-

    06/10-DNW-(Trend Weight: DNW)- Not such a good day yesterday due to a celebration cake. We have one who graduated from Head Start to Kindergarten, one who graduated from Kindergarten to 1st grade and one going to 2nd grade. We celebrated it all at once with one cake and one gathering. The cake frosting was too sweet, I did remove about half of it. Today I have a special tradesman coming to use a “break” which puts the white metal around my bay window and my bow window. Otherwise, no work is being done inside today. It should be a good day for my pre-logged diet. I also plan on pulling a lot of weeds today as it’s getting out of hand. The lawn guy will be here to mow later this evening. I’m feeling a little lazy right now. Hopefully the coffee will kick in. Tomorrow I travel to the cardiologist and was hoping to show more progress than what I’ve been weighing of late. My own fault.

    06/17-187.0-(Trend Weight: 184.7)- Whoa Nelly! I guess the multiple social events and travel has finally caught up with me! Today’s plan….. very low carb and low calorie day using the lowest numbers on my zig-zag plan (1050 calories). Since there was no TMI today I will load up on drinking water which should be easy since it will be 92 degrees today. I don’t have A/C so I will have to be very careful about exercise outside or inside. I will see how that goes this evening. I am hopeful I will shed some water weight and see where I actually land and where the real work begins. Feeling capable and strong right now as I drink my late morning coffee. I hope my resolve sticks around and lasts through the evening. I have many snack monsters to fight each night so I will spend the day sharpening my swords and preparing for the battle! In the big picture, I am nearly 10 pounds over my goal weight today. Clearly I won’t be making goal in June, In fact, it’s almost impossible that I will even make my June starting weight. But I will take whatever redemption progress I can get since it will make July’s job a bit easier. Forward and March Soldier!

    I'll weigh in on Saturdays to be on the same day as my other challenges (and the last day of the month).

    Jan 1: 163.8 Happy New Year!
    Jan 6: 162.8 😁
    Jan 13: 162 😁
    Jan 20: 161 😁
    Jan 27: 162.2 ☹️ Not the right direction
    Jan 30: 159.8 😁 Will be traveling January 31, so will not have access to a scale - so this is my official end of month weight.
    Total weight lost in January: 4.2 Pounds

    Feb 3: 160.6 Not as bad as I expected. Have been traveling and eating out every day since Jan 31.
    Feb 12: 159.8 😁 I am so happy with this - been on vacation since Jan 31 - got back yesterday and today weigh the same as I did when I left. Now to focus and lose some weight in February!
    Feb 18: 158.8 😁 Forgot to post on Saturday - but I was one more down!
    Feb 29: 156.8 😁 Nice way to end the month

    Total Weight Lost in February: 3 Pounds

    Mar 2: 156.8
    Mar 9: 154.8 😁
    Mar 16: 154.2 😁
    Mar 23: 153.4 😁 I am really liking this weekly weigh in, I flucuate so much daily and forget that it is actually a trend downward week to week.
    Mar 30: 152.6 😁

    Total Weight Lost in March: 4 Pounds

    Apr 6: 153 ☹️ My first up in a long time. Had a self sabatoge day yesterday - and expected this. Will have a tough week ahead (which probably caused my self sabatoge) with Easter tomorrow and then going on a small trip for two days.
    April 13: 151.6 😁 Worked super hard this week to get back to where I was!
    April 20: 150.6 😁Working hard in the garden uses a LOT of calories.
    April 28: 152 ☹️ Sad to see - but had trouble with my scale - bit the dust. The new one says a lot heavier than I would like to see - but it is what it is. First day with the new scale was 152.4 - so a little progress since then. Hoping at least to see a loss in April and looking forward to starting a fresh new month in May (two more days to leave April behind me!).
    April 30: 151.6

    Total Weight Lost in April - 1 Pound

    May 6: 150.2 😁 Got below my old scale weight. Went to the doctor this week. She was very happy with me. The new scale was right. I've probably been understating for a while.
    May 11: 150 😁 A little less than last week. I did see the 140 range this week, but just for split second.
    May 18: 150.6 ☹️ It has been a tough week. On Monday I threw out my knee - couldn't walk. Went to the doctor on Tuesday - xrays showed arthritis in both knees but that wouldn't be why I couldn't put any pressure on my leg. Dr. referred me for an MRI - which isn't scheduled until this Thursday - (a week and a half later), was concerend that it might be a meniscus tear . In the meantime - it is getting a little better, I can walk without crutches - probably just a sprain or something. Mostly seated exercises for now - did get in a short slow walk yesterday. Needless to say, the scale was not my friend. I'm thinking that my exercise tracker over estimates how many calories I burn in my seated workouts. With that in mind, yesterday adjusted how I am tracking - will not count ANY calories burned from exercise towards my calorie goal (I usually allow some (not all) - it's a complicated calculation that I won't bore you with). I would really like to see the 140s again by next week!
    May 26: 150.2 Had MRI, now the waiting game to get the results and follow-up appointment. Did get to the 140s but a slow creep back. Five more days to reach my goal.
    May 31: 149.6 I made it to the 140's!

    Total lost in May - 2 Pounds

    June 8: 146.2 😁 Great week. I bought two weeks of Nutrisystem food. They were having a free month of their advantage (a la carte) plan, so I thought I would give it a try to boost my slow loss the last couple of months. I started at the end of May. Could I do it long term? - absolutely not - I love to cook and the food is already getting boring. But it worked. I contributepart of the loss due to the fact that I am off the ibuprofen medication for me knee. The Dr. had me on 600 mg - 3 times a day. From what I read, it can cause water retention. I stopped taking about the same time as I started NS. My MRI results showed a meniscus tear with moderate arthritis. I got a cortizone shot, and will start physical therapy next Friday. In the meantime, still seated cardio workouts - but did get in a 1/2 mile walk yesterday.

    June 14: 145 😁 Anther good week. Very excited - we booked a last minute trip to Hawaii (leave Sunday). We have to drop off Allyson at JFK and said as long as we are there, why don't we use those frequent flyer miles that we have used in AGES! We found a good deal on a condo on VRBO - so have a full kitchen. My plan is to eat two meals in and go out for one. When I do go out - DON'T finish my plate - bring half home for breakfast or lunch the next day. Limit the alcohol. I won't let it be a free for all - I never came home from a vacation saying I wish I ate or drank more! Here on my findings on the Nutrisystem experiment.
    1. It works - I got over my plateau and continued to lose - lost almost 5 pounds in two weeks. 😁
    2. It was super easy to follow 😁 but, had we had to cook two meals daily - one for me, one for Greg. ☹️
    3. The food was edible - not fantastic, not gross 😐
    4. I did not meet my protein goal most days ☹️, but met carb, fat, sodium and fiber goals almost every day 😁.
    5. Most days the calories were about 1,350 - ranging from a little under 1,200 to 1,600. I wasn't hungry. 😁
    6. I ususally eat 5 fruits/veggies a day - but switched to 4 veggies one fruit on Nutrisystem. 😐
    6. It's doable as a quick fix, I couldn't do it long term. 😐
    7. Overall - I am extremely happy with the weight loss. So overall score! 😁 But am really looking forward to cooking again! 👩‍🍳
    8. Next step - see if I gain it all back?

    June 22 147.7 I am in Hawaii and the salt from the food, and the alcohol has me all over the place this week. Up two pounds, down a pound, up a pound, down two pounds. This is me today. I have two more days in paradise and then back home to normal. I know it won't come off as quickly as it came on, but hope I can get back to where I was before the end of the month. The memories are worth it.

    The Plan (so far):
    [Reestablishing my earlier habits]
    1. Weigh myself, record, and reflect daily
    2. Track all food prior to eating (except my standard breakfast, which I can record before lunch.

    SW 1/1/2016 228
    In a maintenance: over 5 years until extreme stress May 2023 followed by a severe fracture.) Motivated to get to 166 by the New Year. (about 2lbs per month) I felt better before & carrying less weight should be easier on my body.

    6/3 179.1 (gained wt last month with visitors & my addiction to eating out) Time to address this!
    6/10 179.1 okay, good that I’m only up 0.6lbs since Jan 1. But time to nudge scale down. Developed a significantly higher distance walking program this week which should help achieve my weight goal. Visitors have settled down & with my husband’s support, vanquishing the eating out habit. Not there yet, but improving.

    06/17-187.0-(Trend Weight: 184.7)- Whoa Nelly! I guess the multiple social events and travel has finally caught up with me! Today’s plan….. very low carb and low calorie day using the lowest numbers on my zig-zag plan (1050 calories). Since there was no TMI today I will load up on drinking water which should be easy since it will be 92 degrees today. I don’t have A/C so I will have to be very careful about exercise outside or inside. I will see how that goes this evening. I am hopeful I will shed some water weight and see where I actually land and where the real work begins. Feeling capable and strong right now as I drink my late morning coffee. I hope my resolve sticks around and lasts through the evening. I have many snack monsters to fight each night so I will spend the day sharpening my swords and preparing for the battle! In the big picture, I am nearly 10 pounds over my goal weight today. Clearly I won’t be making goal in June, In fact, it’s almost impossible that I will even make my June starting weight. But I will take whatever redemption progress I can get since it will make July’s job a bit easier. Forward and March Soldier!

    06/24-187.4-(Trend Weight: 185.5)- Spiraling out of control since all the travel and events. Old habits and cravings come back so easily but are so hard to beat back down. I’ll be working on this issue all week. Especially at night time when the snack monsters seem to come out in full force. All good food in the house, but that doesn’t mean you can’t overeat!
