    JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS | ROUND 6
    Weighing every day and recording my weight helps me to stay encouraged when the scale doesn't go down. When I stop weighing myself I let self-control slip. My goal is to lose the weight but also learn to eat in a way that I naturally maintain my goal weight. No more Yo-Yo weight. In the last 7 years I have probably lost close to 200#.
    I keep reminding myself: that extra serving of food that tastes so good for about 30 seconds stays with me for a long time.
    Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

    Day Weight Comments
    06/02 245.4 Still fighting an infection, but getting better. 1.6 pounds in 10 days is almost 60# a year. :)
    06/03 244.4
    06/04 No weigh-in:Not at home on Sunday mornings so I can’t weigh in.
    06/05 246 4
    06/06 246.0 Went a little over calorie goal (1900) on Mon. was highest. I have been way more active. Sunday after church repaired bikes for about 4 hours. 1000 + bikes donated to our community most in need of quick repairs.
    06/07 247.2 stayed under goal exercised, still fighting infection, sunburn and allergic reaction. Pants getting loose.
    06/08246.6
    06/09 246.6
    06/10 248.2 Yesterday’s calorie intake 1960 calories, ( 19th day) I use high estimates on portions so calorie count is artificially high. Disappointed with this experiment 1800 calories for 21 days. Stayed under goal except for 3 days stayed under 1900 calories & 1 day 1960. A staph infection and allergic reaction may or may not have been a factor. No explanation for weight gain.

    Second twenty-one day challenge:
    This challenge shows the reality of a weight loss journey. Nobody loses weight without set backs and I hope lots of people find this challenge encouraging. When I first signed into MFP I was so discouraged by my Yo-yo dieting I wanted to give up. The reality is I am not going to stop eating chocolate, bread, pizza, ice cream and the foods I love. That is not what makes me fat. What makes me fat is a lack of self -control. There I admitted it.
    Should I celebrate being down 21# since May 20, 2016(266.6), or cry because I am up 20# since January 17,2017 (226.0) I think I will put the past in the past and move on. I am determined to use this forum to keep me accountable. Seeing it posted online should help. My goal is to stabilize my eating habits so I stop the Yo-yoing. I will celebrate the victories, and hope to just keep that scale going down .

    New 21 day Round goal: 1600 calories for 21 days. My goal is about practicing self-control learning to eat correct portions and eat without gaining weight. I really need to get my eating under control. Weight loss would be a bonus.
    I'm going to get back on track.
