Weight History

Start Weight

Lost so far: 17.2 lb

Current Weight
153.8 lb
Performance: losing 2.1 lb a week

Goal Weight
135.0 lb
Still to go: 18.8 lb
This past year has been tough. I went from being an extremely active (12,000-15,000 steps a day) professional organizer and merchandiser to being... a couch potato. I blew out the ligaments in my right knee and tore the meniscus in my left. Good times.

Now... I walk the dog about once a day (hubby does morning duty as that's when the knees are creakiest) and have a brand new sit-down job staring at a computer monitor all day. My weight is creeping up and it's my own fault: bread and cookies are my number one comfort food and when I hurt, I turn to food.

I don't want another year like this one. I'm trying to actively lose some weight to make it easier on my knees. I had already lost 20 pounds, but have gained 6 back since October. Time to change! My goal is to lose 26 pounds and get to where I can exercise again.

My secrets to success.
Good for you! You've just described most of my diet and it's working for me, too. I do eat corn on occasion (I make a cold corn salad with other veggies that's so good), but I've found that bread and pasta are not my friend. I'm reading "Wheat Belly" right now and it's just confirming everything I've been experiencing for the last few years.

what is your goal weight, 5'3 and 5'4 ladies?
Mine is 135. I had originally set 145 as my goal but realized it kept me in the "overweight" category of BMI. I would like to just be "normal", Haha!

Entering current weight in weight history
I can get today's in, but not yesterdays! I realized that I hadn't clicked "100%" when following the diet completely, so I deleted yesterday's weigh-in and tried to change it using the historical weights option on the tool bar. No luck. I'm so irritated!

Weight Loss Bar Graph Help
Okay, that makes sense. Thanks for the help! I haven't found a place on this site where it really explains what's going on.

Weight Loss Bar Graph Help
In the weight history section I like to see the graph below which has a bar graph charting my weight. I noticed today that one of my bars is yellow while all the rest are red. Does anyone know what that means? I can't find an answer on the site.
