OSW - 213 (highest weight ever 280 but I've had most of that off for more than 15 years but still)
CW - 186.4
RGW - 185.4
UGW – 135
Get 5 servings of fruits/veggies every day.
Stay under my calorie goal of 1,400.
Walk at least an hour 3 days a week, 4 days if nothing better is available.
Weight training 1 day a week
12/04 - 186.4 Just one day off from hitting my 186 goal. I guess eating 300 calories all day and 1100 after 6:00 p.m. is going to have an impact. Sure I stayed within goal but the timing screwed me for next day weigh in - lesson learned. Going to the gym tonight for weights. After six rounds I've lost 5.9 pounds. Very close to a pound a week. If I keep that pace I'll be at my goal in 1 year. I started in March but didn't really get serious until July or August. Here's to the next six weeks. It would be nice to start the new year in the 170's.
12/05 - Traveling no scale. I drove four hours yesterday in the snow, then went straight to the hotel. I did two miles on the treadmill but did not make it to the gym. The roads are clear, I'm going to the gym tonight.
12/06 - Traveling no scale. Went to the gym and had a great workout. Stayed within calories and didn't have any sweets. I'm driving 4 hours home this afternoon - in snow again. I'm a little anxious about tomorrow morning's weigh-in after two days of nothing. This weighing every day thing is kind of addictive.
12/07 - 186.1 I'm happy with that. My boyfriend was traveling with me which means I'm going to much more interesting restaurants and it's more of a challenge to stay within calories. In this case Thai and Vietnamese; I struggle to log it. I do my best guess and that has to be good enough. I still exercised and didn't go too crazy (Ok I had more of his onion strings than I should have on the last day).
12/08 - 186.7 Boom- Chicka Dark Chocolate drizzle is fine in small quantities, unfortunately small quantities aren’t possible because it’s so delicious. I now know I can’t handle it and won’t buy it again. I have no excuse
12/09 - 185.3 Not sure why I’m down today but I ain’t mad. I was right on target yesterday and my only exercise was moving furniture and house cleaning but I guess it was enough.
12/10 - 185.5 Up slightly, my guess is the sodium rich Papa Murphy's Chicken artichoke delite pizza I had for dinner. Within calories easily but high in sodium. I would think that would be gone tomorrow as long as I stay on target today. I walked 4 miles yesterday and it was great. I am starting to love walking in the cold. I have a meeting with my boss at 3:30, should be done by 4:00. That should give me enough time to get another walk in before it's too dark.
I'm in - my 2nd round
Female - 56, 5'5"
End R60: 174.8
12/03 - 174.8
12/04 - 174.6 Small victory. I enjoyed goulash and garlic bread for dinner last night but used portion control.
12/05 - 174.6 Holding steady. I have to keep motivated. I should maybe add a little more exercise, or just some exercise lol, would be good. I know that would kick it up (or down) a notch.
12/06 - 174.0 Now that's more like it. 20 minutes on the treadmill and I survived. I might try it again tonight.
12/07 - 172.8 Woo Hoo! Gotta keep on it. Love the feeling of accomplishment.
12/08 - 173.6 Too much celebration. I didn't think I went over on my calories that much but just poor food choices - starchy and salty. I did exercise. Minor setback. I'm going to concentrate on more water and more veggies this weekend and maybe Monday i will see that number on the scale again.
12/09 - 175.0
12/10 - 175.8 The weekends are hard for me. I need a new plan - not sure what it is yet. I'm going to have to work hard to finish out this round with a loss. It can and WILL be done. (Pep talk to myself.)

12/03 (Start weight) 177.4
12/04 - Tuesday - 178.8 - Hmmm...well thats interesting. I guess the weekend just took a day to catch up with me. Yesterday was a good eating day, even did a little yoga to destress and it was a circus at work. Not sweating it though...I felt really good this morning. Sticking to habits today, canned soup for lunch and eggroll in a bowl for dinner and tomorrows lunches. When I closed yesterdays diary is said I would be 170.5 in 5 weeks time so that was encouraging seeing that I'm not far "off schedule" to short term goal #3!
12/05 - Wednesday - 178.8 - Ate Wendys without prelogging last night and now I know that a spicy chicken sandwich and fries is 1100 calories! Whoops. Ended the day around maintenance but it was not what I had planned and beat myself up over it for a moment - DH reminded me that it is a TREAT and I'm not eating fast food every day like I used to. I then gave myself some credit for the changes I've made and was able to enjoy the fact that we actually had a nice impromptu dinner date. This is a LIFELONG journey so getting used to a normal amount of eating out is needed - I cant beat myself up over living life! But I can learn from it!
12/06 - Thursday - 177.4 - Stressful evening last night. DH may be seeking other employment, unknown is terrifying but we will be okay. Anyway, work feels like a funeral today. Stuck to habits this morning and will be clinging to them thru this. Endo follow up this afternoon - and physical appointment labs came back looking good! My non-fasting glucose was 87 at 3PM!!! More labs to be done today and hoping to see improvement there also.
12/07 - Friday - 177.0 - Feeling more optimistic about our future today - the only thing I can plan for is that the plan will change - sticking by that motto through this next chapter. Endocrinologist appointment was amazing. Doc said I can come off my metformin, and other meds - continue with lifestlye changes and ready to start trying to conceive!!! PCOS symptoms have subsided, which is the whole reason I got serious about this journey. Smashing goals and pushing on to the next goal!
12/08 - Saturday - 176.0 - low cal day yesterday, mostly due to nerves still, wasnt terribly hungry. Our neighbor/tenant brought over homemade soup and grilled cheese for dinner, so that saved me from the super salty chili baked potato I had planned and was a nice little get together. Brought the dog for a bath at the new pet store and washed bedding so everyones feeling less stuffy and squeky clean! Also noticed my hair feels really healthy! Making meal plans today, need to do full haul grocery shop and farm shop.
12/09 - Sunday - 175.6 - Yesssss!!! Ate what I wanted yesterday but kept it in the green. This May also be a little bit stress related but Im usually a stress overeater so I'll take it as a win.
12/10 - Monday - 175.2 - Stress related still, appetite is just not there so I'm eating way smaller portions when I do eat. Went to the grocery store and farm this weekend so fridge is full to continue cooking most meals at home. Dinner with parents last night was really nice - it was foreign to me not to fill up on cheese and crackers before dinner, but I did stress eat an extra piece of pie late last night. Busy week so need to plan accordingly.

12/04: 176.6 Had a super disappointing weigh in today. I’m moping a little bit. Don’t hold it against me
12/05: 176.8 Don't you love when weigh ins make no sense I'm hoping I'm just retaining water, because the numbers definitely don't add up

12/07: 176.0 I'm gonna explode

12/10: 174.0 I forgot to weigh myself before I ate, so it was probably pretty close to yesterday! Officially crossed 20lbs off my milestone chart!

About me: 62, 5'7", hit maintenance in March 2018 and, typical yoyo, currently bouncing back up over original goal weight of 130.
Want to get back to 127-128
Crept back to JGM10D quietly in Round 60, after intentionally sitting out a number of rounds, because I need the daily accountability that worked before.
12/4 - 131.2 - over maintenance calories yesterday. Really tired plus sugary treats in the evening. Dropping goal calories to the .5 loss goal for this round, and we shall see!
12/5 - 130.4 - just at my new calorie limit that should result in .5 a week loss. 7500 steps and I do eat back as much of the fitbit calorie adjustment as I want to, that's worked for me before.
12/6 - 130.0 - just at my new gentle-loss calorie limit. 8500 steps. Poor sleep last night, can make for a weak-willed day, so I am on guard.
12/7 - 130.4 - yep I was over on calories yesterday. 7800 steps. However, did get almost 9 hours of sleep last night, much needed. Today I have a wellness check Dr appointment, something I rarely do!
12/8 -130.8 - over on calories and under on steps yesterday, only 5000. The after work snacking got me. Still, doing better so far today.
12/9 - 130.8- just under my .5 loss plan calories for yesterday, 7000 steps. Took a lovely 2 mile walk with our little rescue dog this morning - we've had her for only about 6 weeks - she is doing so much better with the "snoot loop" type collar, no longer getting my arm pulled off when she sees a squirrel or another dog or a bicyclist or a runner or ...
12/10 - 131.0 - under maintenance but a bit over my modest-loss goal yesterday. 13500 steps though, included a 1.5 mile run with dogger.
More than happy with the way my average is shaping up this challenge.
Hello! I am newly returned to MFP and this is my first challenge.
I am at my lifetime high, and seem to have gained 3.5 lbs in 2 days of reasonable eating- which cannot be real. So my goal for this challenge is to finish below 210.
12/4 216 (mini- win: went out for a rare lunch with a friend; didn't over eat! Saved $$ that way too!)
12/6. 214.5 still over my weigh-in from last Friday, frustrating! But down from yesterday so I'll take it. Happy Friday all!
12/9 213 swam laps today!

12/07 - 178.0 This is from working my butt off yesterday. So happy. A loss. I do not take this for granted.
12/08 - 178.0 After speaking with @MadisonMolly2017 and watching her successful progression using small steps and realistic goals, I decided that I needed to change my end weight goal and time frame. I have not done well this fall and it would be unhealthy of me to try to reach my original goal by Valentine’s Day, especially when I have already lost so much and am closer to the end of the weight loss journey. My new goal by Valentine’s Day is 155. I do continue to strive to ultimately reach 145, perhaps by my birthday in May. Between now and my two goals dates, I plan on making mini goals and changes to help me achieve success. She has pointed out that small changes over time turn into big successes. Example: Add a 15 minute walk into my day 3 or 4 times per week. Add 10 additional ounces of water into each day. Slowly progress these into more. (Sometimes you just can’t jump into the whole 80 or 90 ounces at once). Thank you @MadisonMolly2017 for helping and for setting such a good example. I am grateful to you all for your kind & caring help. @GrandmaJackie for this wonderful ongoing challenge that reminds us all with daily weigh-ins that we should take it one day at a time and that there will be normal fluctuations and that we are all challenged in different ways. @abowersgirl for your good example in exercise and making even 5 spare minutes that I may have really count. @tiabirdie56 for all your research, your shared information on this Just Give Me challenge and for all the challenges that you present on the Autumn Winter 2018 to Spring 2019 Challenge that you host. @quiltingjaine (and all the others) who support me in my Keto efforts, not just to lose weight, but to change my overall health by improving (and maybe someday eliminating) my Type 2 Diabetes using my low carb keto lifestyle as a tool. @fitby44 for her FABULOUS post today. I think her insight this morning has the potential to change all of our lives. With more short term and attainable goals, I think complete success will come soon enough. Taking things slower and doing it more simply will help me keep my head up during my journey instead of always looking down at my feet in shame. Sorry for the long post but I think those that help us most deserve the shout out. But know this…. I learn so much from each and every one of you and I am honored to get the opportunity to know you all.
12/09 - 180.6 OMgosh. 248 Net Carbs, 1835 Calories so what else would I expect? I know I am retaining water already because I am shedding practically nothing. Ordered pizza at lunchtime for myself, son, his friend, and my friend Joey who helped bring everything in and begin the process of Christmas decorating. A HUGE undergoing as it involves my home AND my business. Tree looks lovely on the new carpet. Also a tree in the office at the front of my house (for motel & cabin customers). Later, a friend was “nice enough” to bring me a Chinese dinner from out-of-town. I know I should not have felt “obligated” to eat with her, but I did. The victory is that I did not eat the rice and I made my Cauliflower rice and stuck to the Almond Chicken, gravy and egg drop soup (only 1 carb in that!). However, the breading on the chicken….ugg but delicious. Boxes are still everywhere with the rest of the decorations for the house and business. All sitting there with boxes not yet finished from carpet installation. I can tell you this, I have been getting all my steps in! 10,000 – 15,000 daily for the past few days! Today I have four cabins to clean, all the laundry from them to do, and I want to finish my decorating. Lofty goals. However, I will get out to that freezer in the garage and thaw something in my plan today and will do things to make a difference today. I feel like I’m back in school, have missed a day and now need to do my make-up work. But that is the only way to keep my grades up and add another “A” to my grade book, so make-up work it is!
12/10 - 180.4 Moving right along. Down a drop which is surprising after Chinese food. Preparing for my trip and nervous as heck about it. I fear a double mastectomy is in my future. I will NOT allow any stress eating today. Because of tomorrow’s travel and all the restaurants that are going to be involved, today is Paramount. Today I will get lots of steps in and try eating an especially low calorie and low carb meal plan today. I will also work on shedding some water weight with TTTW (Tish’s triple threat water). Tomorrow (at the suggestion of @MadisonMolly2017) I will travel with my healthy fats in tow to use as snacks (almonds and walnuts). This should help to minimize my hunger while traveling. I am thankful for another day and another opportunity to take care of this body I have been given. Today my strength and determination Will Prevail.
12/11 - I’ll have a very very early weigh-in and will post when I can. Traveling to the University Hospital for the Plastic Surgery consult regarding the breast issues related to the breast cancer (remission). I will be staying overnight.
12/12 - -Traveling, no weigh in.
12/13 - Final weigh-in directly after two days of traveling. This number will likely end in green instead of in-the-red. However, the appointments I am keeping is working on another aspect of my health. That, in itself, I hope will be a victory.
I am a 50 year old 5'5" woman. I am trying to get healthier to avoid diabetes and all of the problems that come from being overweight.
I have found this challenge to be both rewarding and frustrating! Looking at my weight daily has been a real eye opener to see all of the fluctuations and how a high carb day will affect me and the loss for 2-3 days after.
I need to step up my game if I want to meet any of my goals.

ROUND 61 (Round 8 for me)
5’5” 66 y/o Texas Lady
SW 178 lb.
GW 140 lb.
Started Keto WOE on September 24th (2018). Still experiencing decreased arthritis hip and shoulder pain since the second week of Keto. Since starting the keto, I’ve lost 21 lb., I wear smaller jeans, and I’m encouraged to press on. Staying within calorie limits is easy enough, but not exceeding my carb limit is difficult. Per my KetoMojo meter, I’m in ketosis most of the time.
Rounds 54 – 60 resulted in a loss of 20.4 lb.! Love it!
12/04 156.4 This is what I wanted to see yesterday! Better late than never. Yesterday, my podiatrist offered a $450 custom orthotic insert my insurance won’t cover. I’ll think about it for 2 weeks before I see the doctor again. Meanwhile, I have a wrap on my foot, and Thor (my GSD) and I will start C25K today. We walked 5.2 miles twice last week, so it’s time to pick up the pace.
12/05 156.0 Thor and I incorporated C25K into the beginning of our 5 mile walk yesterday. I was excited, and it felt great; however, last night, my left knee hurt—a lot. I iced it and took an extra anti-inflammatory. It’s not quite as bad this morning, but it hurts, and I’m walking with care. My initial thought is that I should have done more lower body strength training to prepare myself. I may have to backtrack and give myself another month of preparation. My foot didn’t hurt, so I’ll probably trust the podiatrist and buy the orthotic insert. I ran in my new Mizuno running shoes, which is a brand that has wide widths, good arch support, and has served me well in the past. I really want to run again.
12/06 156.2 As slow as I moved yesterday, this weight looks reasonable. I was supposed to complete my second C25K session today, but it’s not to be. I’ll have to be patient—knee is still hurting. I practiced walking slowly yesterday and making my knee bend. I can’t walk stiff-legged and expect it to loosen up. My cousin gave me an ointment, and I used heat a few times yesterday. I see the orthopedist tomorrow. For today, I’m going to play cards with the girls and try not to think about the knee. I’ve learned, “All things work together for good to them who love the Lord, to those who are called according to his purpose.” I just have to stop whining and complaining. 😊 Have a blessed day, Everyone!
12/07 155.2 No whining or complaining! I enjoyed playing cards with the girls and ate according to plan, but I sure miss walking normally. Thor doesn’t understand why we’re not getting out for our walks. I hope to get tips/information from the orthopedist that will soon have me walking (running?) again without pain.
12/08 154.4 I like the looks of that number. Doc said I have a torn meniscus and gave me a steroid shot. He suggested I stick with walking, but I’m not ready to give up on running. I will strengthen my knees before trying to run again. I hope the meniscus will heal, but, if not, I’ll have it repaired. This morning, my knee still bends more easily, but it’s more swollen than yesterday. I’ll try some ice. This, too, shall pass!
12/09 154.4 After posting yesterday, I looked up “swelling after steroid injection.” Apparently, it’s common and I need to ice and stay off my feet, as much as possible, for a couple of days. Sounded like a good excuse to take it easy, so, except for preparing meals, I rested! This morning, there’s less swelling, but the knee is still sore. I guess, after church, I’ll have to take it easy again. Today, I will pray for a blessed day of rest, in God’s loving care, for all of us.
12/10 154.0 Every day, I have small food temptations, but, so far, I’m pretty good at telling myself “No.” Sometimes, I yell "NO" at myself. Today, I’m grateful to be retired and not have to get ready and drive to work every morning, at least not until tax season starts in January. Even then, I won’t go to work every day. Of course, there’s always plenty of work to be done at home and on our small farm. Today, my knee is easier to bend than it was yesterday, but it's still sore. Tomorrow is the monthly community women's gathering. My grandmother, great grandmother, and two great-great aunts were charter members, so, last year, I decided I was old enough and had the time to join. My goal on Wednesday is to take Thor for a walk--something shorter than 5 miles.
@back2cute Did your Easter candy look like this?

You can do it, @motheroftwins95! I find that weekends for me are either really good or really bad. Sadly, way more of the latter lately than the former, but we can both turn that around.8
@back2cute If they were Cadbury mini eggs I totally get it2

12/12 - work travel, no weigh in
12/10: Did Not Weigh - Oh dear. So about once every 6 months or so I have the strange desire to eat and eat and eat until I feel so full that I want to throw up. Then I eat some more. Yesterday was that day. I don't even want to know how many calories I consumed, although I know the answer is going to be far far too many. I'll try and run up an estimate today, just for the record, but I really do feel awful because of it. The fluid retention is real. My skin feels all puffy and I am so bloated. I have an awful headache and legit feel like I am hungover (and considering I've not drunk any alcohol for over a week, it's definitely the food). I might leave it another day before I assess the damage, but I'm sure that was not good for the scales.
I'm inspired NOT to follow in your footsteps! Thanks for the reminder!4
This challenge helps me make MEANING out of the daily ups and downs that look so random and discouraging. When I keep my eye on the process (eating under my limit and getting some exercise so that isn't painful) and on the big picture (that 10-day average) I see that it's working.7

Round 61: (My 15th)
12/06 146 Holding steady. Can not believe how close we are to the end of the year. Thinking about the holidays makes me nervous. Even though my goal has been to get to 140 by the end of the year, I actually will be ok if I maintain my weight through the holiday and not gain! Sorry everyone, I have slacked off posting. I will make sure I post every day this round.
12/07 146 Surprise lol. It's all good though, better than a gain .
12/08 145.5 I'm happy for a little loss but surprised because the baby kept me up the past 2 nights so I'm running on only a couple hrs of sleep.
12/09 145.5 Slept a little better last night. Ate fast food yesterday evening because someone brought it to us for dinner, but I made sure I drank plenty of water.
12/10 145 So this means my BMI is normal (although I know BMI's can be misleading). 30 lbs loss since July 18th, this year. I'll be honest, I got to a point where I was really obsessive over the scale and what it said every day, and that was all I could focus on. I was weighing myself several times a day and I didn't realize it but I was becoming more self conscious, obsessive and depressed. I thought that if I didn't keep my mind focused on losing weight and weighing myself several times a day, then I wouldn't lose. I was wrong. Thank God I am now out of the obsessive mindset, and have been for several weeks. Anyone who is struggling with the mental end of this, know you are not alone but please please do some soul searching and work on changing it.. no telling where I would be mentally if I didn't.

12/10 150.4 Ok I am back, getting over a nasty cold and back on track to stay put or lose a little over the next couple of weeks. I went off the rails since Thanksgiving, but damage not too bad, just these 5 lbs up which I know with conscious eating and accountability I can drop. I will need to catch up with everyone's progress reports this evening. Missed you all!
