Geez I hated to log this weight. No way in heck i ate 7000 calories worth of food this week
I have not been eating much, and drinking virtually zero water.
Yesterday I finally joined the gym, and I drank water like it was my job, so I'm saying water weight..which is still frustrating to see your goal number go.
Thank goodness there are 3 more days of redemption left this month...

Only 1.2kg loss this month so far but I did go up and stagnate a little this month so a loss is a loss.

Yesterday wasn't a fluke? Wow! Added another .3 to the loss, so I'm at 10.9. Ovulation must be delayed or nonexistent this month.... Never know what is going to happen these days - the fun of peri menopause.

Well I saw my goal weight once this month, and slipped again The same pattern I had last month. -- Must do better next month. I hope I can drop 1.4 pounds by the 31st...that way I would show atleast a few pound loss for the month. Today I a fast day so I should see some sort of a downward movement for tomorrow's weigh in

--------------------

I'm in. My goal is to drop 8 pounds; Looks like a lot, but since I went on a week long binge and I am carrying a lot of bloat. I am hoping the first 4 pounds will drop off quickly.

Definitely cycle-related water weight, I think, since calories and exercise have all been on track.

I thought for sure I would see a gain today as these losses are so out of character for me. And when I stepped on the scale this morning, I thought it had gone up .2. Then I realized it actually went down .7. I definitely said an explicative! Wow! I even ate a hazelnut flour and chocolate meringue frosting cupcake last night (though accounted for in my calories).

SW: 233.0
GW: 226.0 (met 5/16)
Amended GW: 224.0 (met 5/23)
2nd amended GW: 223.0 (met 5/28)

05/01: 233.0 (-0.0)
05/02: 234.0 (+1.0) Ovulation weight gain
05/03: 234.4 (+1.4) Ovulation weight gain
05/04: 235.1 (+2.1) Ovulation weight gain
05/05: 233.9 (+0.9) Starting to come down from Ovulation weight gain
05/06: 233.1 (+0.1) Can't wait to stop putting a PLUS in front of my totals!
05/07: 232.1 (-0.9) YAY!!!! First loss of this month!
05/08: 230.0 (-3.0) FINALLY dropping!
05/09: 228.9 (-4.1) Not sure how much "whoosh" is left for this post-ovulation thing.
05/10: 228.4 (-4.6) Let's see if I can lose 2.4 more pounds in 3 weeks. My body will stall out soon.
05/11: 227.5 (-5.5) totally shocked by this
05/12: 228.9 (-4.1). This is how I know I'm carb sensitive 1.4 pound gain from a slice of pie and a scoop of ice cream for Mother's Day.
05/13: 228.0 (-5.0) Lost .9 of that 1.4 pound carb weight gain.
05/14: 227.1 (-5.9) lost the rest of the water weight and added .4 of new loss
05/15: 226.4 (-6.6) woohoo only .4 to go for the month to reach goal!
05/16: 226.0 (-7.0) I made my goal!!!!!! Yay!!!! Phew... as I know the monthly stall-out should be here in the next day or two! (starting with my period).
05/17: 225.6 (-7.4) bonus ounces!
05/18: 225.9 (-7.1) monthly visitor should be here any minute (I think... darn perimenopause!)
05/19: 225.4 (-7.6) Period started. Yay for regularity.
05/20: 225.5 (-7.5) SOOOOO happy that I'm not getting a lot of water weight gain with AF.
05/21: 224.1 (-8.9) Eek! Wow gardening is a great way to drop weight!
05/22: 224.5 (-8.5) I knew that huge drop had to be a fluke, but glad it didn't go up much!
05/23: 223.7 (-9.3) Unbelievable really. I've never lost this much in a month EVER before.
05/24: 223.6 (-9.4) So expected it to bounce up this morning, as this can't be real?
05/25: 223.7 (-9.3) Yep... Monthly stall out is beginning.
05/26: 223.3 (-9.7) close to 10 lbs, but it will start to climb as I near ovulation.
05/27: 224.0 (-9.0) and as predicted, climbing as I near ovulation - day 9
05/28: 222.4 (-10.6) OMGosh! I did it! NEVER have I lost 10 pounds in a month!
05/29: 222.1 (-10.9) guess ovulation is delayed this month with these losses!
05/30: 221.3 (-11.7). #%*€???? What???

tinajayne, I've noticed it takes my body a couple days to get back on track when I don't hydrate, not sure if it was always like that, I did weights yesterday too, I don't think that helps with the whoosh, but makes me feel smaller...

Goal for May 155 - giving myself a real challenge

May 1 - 161.0
May 2 - 159.4 - weekly WI thought I was only 160 yesterday, so I lost a pound more than I thought...lol
May 3 - 161.5 - erg
May 4 - 161.8 - ergg
May 5 - 160.2 - grrr
May 6 - 160.4 - sigh
May 7 - 161.5 - big sigh...
May 8 - 161.1
May 9 - 159.5 - weekly WI love seeing that 5, however briefly
May 10 - 160.0
May 11 - 162.6 - TOM, not to mention wings and beer...
May 12 - 160.3
May 13 - 163.1 - stupid peanuts...TOM, cheese and crackers...
May 14 - 161.2
May 15 - 158.3 feeling hopeful!
May 16 - 158.1 weekly WI down 1.4
May 17 - 162.2
May 18 - 164.7 yikes!
May 19 - 160.3
May 20 - 161.9
May 21 - 161.1
May 22 - 160.4
May 23 - 158.0
May 27 - 162.6 - Festival weight
May 28 - 160.2
May 29 - 161.1 ok so maybe giving up on 155 for May, but going after it again in June. July, etc however long it takes
May 30 - 160.7 - I feel thinner

Congrats to all the losers and everyone toughing it out who didn't make goal, whatever you do, don't quit!

Best to all

GOAL: Lose 5 pounds

SW: 201
GW: 196
-----------
5/2: 201.6
5/8: 200.2
5/14: 200.2
5/20: 199
5/22: 198.6
5/23: 198.2
5/30: 196.4

Total loss: 4.6 pounds

So close to my goal! I don't expect to lose it by tomorrow, but I will weigh-in anyway, just in case. I'm still very pleased since I had a slow start, made some changes mid-month and loss most of that weight in the past two weeks. Plus. I managed to get to Onederland this month, and stay there!

Congrats to everyone who met their goals or lost this month!
