Original starting weight for this current journey : (1-11-2018) 235.0
R63 EW= 185.5
R64 EW= TBD
First Weight Goal: To weigh 175 by Valentine’s Day 💗💗💗 I hope to achieve this by losing about 1.5 pounds per week (or 2 lbs per round).
My Second Weight Goal: To weigh 155 by my Birthday on May 10th by sticking to my plan to lose 1.5 pounds per week (or 2 lbs per round).
My third Weight Goal: To weigh 145 by the 4th of July using the same plan as above.
During each Weight goal I plan on increasing my walking (back to what I did when I was on a downward trend). I also want to increase my cardio and regularly use weights to help firm my flabby arms.

01/03 185.5 Stuck in the depths of a living hell with my scale, however, I successfully stayed on course with my diet and exercise plan. I am THRILLED to report that my son joined me in the aerobic dancing and agreed to follow his special diet plan WITHOUT COMPLAINT. Because of his eating disorders (due to the Autism) I felt truly inspired. If he can do this so gracefully, so can I. And so I succeeded in all my efforts. I just wish the scale would budge. Metimucil tonight for sure (Intermittent Fasting today). I am going to skip pool tonight. It is a potluck feast and I’ve had enough of those in December to stuff a pig : ) I need this good jumpstart to get things going. I also need to return the gesture and be the inspiration that my son deserves. Good luck everyone on #64.
01/04 185.4 It’s a small change, but a change nonetheless. Last night I invited my old friend Joey over to watch Christmas movies. I really wanted to enjoy the last of the twinkling Christmas Tree and to show myself that life is good even when I cannot indulge or overeat. He constantly claims to be “on a diet” and is using the calorie counting method only. He asked me if he could bring icecream or popcorn for a snack during the movie. I told him no. Please eat before he comes as I am restarting my plan, am struggling with willpower and need to stay on track to get my body jumpstarted. He showed up with a share-sized bag of some type of chips (looked like maybe a flavored Doritos ?) and soda pop. I told him that if he wanted to go home and finish eating before he comes (like I asked) to go ahead, he could come back in awhile. Otherwise, I asked him to put his food in the car. I told him he could keep the soda if necessary or I had water and some sugar free options available. He kept the soda. I was a little ticked about the whole thing and was brutally honest with him. I’m not sure if it was sabotage, selfishness or stupididy, but I know I was very clear that I didn’t want to have any snacking while I’m still very fragile. It was only 2 hours and I knew he could have came pre-fed. I had already explained to him about how eating carbs so consistently through the holidays put me in a state of cravings, weakness for carbs etc. I spent the evening trying to be nice in spite of my feelings. While he sipped on his soda I made myself a miracle tea. My own homemade concoction of green tea, lemon, ACV, stevia, red pepper flakes, turmeric powder with a touch of black pepper for absorption, and I added a bit of parsley sprigs to it while steeping. It felt like an exotic drink and I enjoyed it. I let it calm me and help me get over my touch of anger. We watched “The Christmas Chronicles” with Kurt Russell which was better than I expected. In the end I was proud of myself for staying strong and showing up for myself. I’ve known him many years so that did help. I am not strong like this everyday, but I truly want to stay strong in my own home & environment as that is where I spend 80-90% of my time (I work from home). Sorry for the rant, but how dare he?
01/05 185.4 AGAIN. A little disappointed in this. I walked 5.5 miles yesterday including a planned walk inside the school of 2 miles. Ate way below calories at 977. Net carbs of 19. Over 12,000 steps. I was a little low on all my macros because my calories were a bit too low. However, for the amount of calories I ate, my protein, fat etc was right in balance with my goals. I guess I will just have to wait it out. My body’s a little angry with me right now perhaps. Walt Disney and Cinderella taught me long ago not to worry, my whoosh will come true at some point
01/06 184.6 I’m in the red! I’m in the red! I’m showing a loss! Now if I was in the in the red in the stock market (again) I’d be a little worried, but in my weight?, HOW SWEET IT IS! In fact, it is sweeter than all the desserts I could imagine today! I love it when I’m feeling so strong & capable! Happy Sunday everyone.
01/07 183.6 Moving back down the way I moved up in December. It’s going well. I do Keto, but I also track my CICO as @quiltingjaine mentioned. I intermittent fast 16:8 at a minimum. Now, if I could just be more consistent with my water intake!
01/08 183.3 Still inching down. I haven’t taken my measurements in awhile because of the holiday gain. I hope to feel comfortable enough to do that again soon. I have a short out-of-town trip tomorrow which will not require restaurants. Whew! Thursday is another trip which will run from early morn until very very late at night. Probably two restaurants so I am trying to mentally strengthen myself starting today to make some decent choices. No matter, I am sure there will be a bump up on Friday due to water retention, but I can combat that with Tish’s triple threat Tea. Nice & warm & comforting on a cold blistery Northern Michigan day!
01/09 183.6 A very late dinner last night which included a few starchy veggies in the stirfry mix. Calories were good, carbs a little high. Not enough water. Walked 2 miles at the school. Travel tomorrow. Inspired today. Emotional day overall, in a good way. I feel like I need to take control of my life, and I feel like I can actually do it.

2019 SW: 72.8kg (oops)
GW: 62-67kg depending on how it feels
01/02 72.8kg 1570
After long haul flights and plane/airport food yesterday. Back to work, the gym and logging everything that passes my lips today.
01/03 72.3 (-0.5) 1544
Good day yesterday, ate what I logged, went to the gym and didn't give in to cravings in the evening. I've decided not no eat back my exercise cals, so I'm logging them as just 1 cal.
Is anyone doing Yoga with Adriene's Dedicate? I meant to start today with day 1 as the video isn't available until I leave the house in the morning, but then found it was too long for the time I had available, so did an old one instead.
01/04 71.9 (-0.4) 1557
I like this trend, hopefully it'll continue through this round back to below 70k. Yesterday went ok, I mostly stuck to my pre-logged food. I did have one piece of sweet I had brought back for my colleagues (it was a 130cals!), but changed my dinner from pasta to salad. I also ate the last of a few cereal bars I had from my trip, which were also high calorie. In the evening, I decided not to go shopping or to the gym or communicate with various people, but take time for myself and start with Dedicate Day 1. It was great! This morning, I did Day 2 and will also go to the gym tonight. I'll also do a healthy food shop. I remembered today that I had started eating bigger portions to curb the snacking, I'll get back to that from this evening. And I also looked at my macros and again noticed I need to up my protein, which I seem to always struggle with.
01/05 71.0kg (-0.9) wild guess: 2400??
I think this is all water weight, which i'm shedding with help of Tish's parsley/cucumber water. I can even see how my feet are no longer swollen.
Yesterday was good, stuck to my eating plan, went shopping, went to the gym. I spent the evening on the sofa and really wanted wine and all the snacks, but stuck to tea and my prelogged snacks. Today, started with yoga, which was sweatier than expected, had a filling and late breakfast and now have to do some work. I plan to either go for a walk or to the gym for a walk on the treadmill later.
01/06 71.0kg 1587
My plan didn't work out as I helped a friend, who's been having a *kitten* time, and that help came in form of going for food and drinks. I was relatively mindful, but even a few beers meant I went way over cals. I didn't walk or run, partly also due to the rain and also didn't do much of my work. Today was supposed to be my more "relaxed eating" day as i'm meeting another friend. But now i'm about to rush to the gym, squeeze in some work and then meet my friend... not the Sunday I had in mind.
01/07 71.0kg again (+-/0.0) 1468
That's not what I wanted. Good day yesterday, didn't turn out as hectic as I thought, which was nice. My legs were tired, so didn't run as much as I wanted to, but walked instead. After the gym, I weighed 70.5kg. Then went for coffee&cake with my friend and fit in a brownie without eating back my exercise cals. I have officially eaten the last snacks at home and I'm going to try not to buy any more. Fruit and tea for late night snacking now and if I manage to stick to it until Fri, there will be a reward in form of a bagel or cake from this nice shop.
Today, started with Yoga, all my food is planned and I will to go to the gym. I was gonna write 'want to go/plan to go', but decided it's not optional, so I will go. I was speaking to a friend on the phone yesterday and talking abut weight and exercise etc. And I realise that my legs and bum have gone quite wobbly and it must be due to the lack of walking here. So I know, once back in the UK, this will change again, but it's really annoying. I will increase my treadmill walking, but I can't make up walking around 5-7km every day, just through my commute and a little extra.
01/08 71.3kg (+0.3) bahhh 1442
Hm, I did not expect a gain, but I am feeling very bloated, soft and chubby. But maybe, this is the actual gain from the year end showing... Either way it needs to go!
I ran 35mins on the treadmill in one go yesterday eve, the longest treadmill run so far, and spent a total of 80mins on there. Today i'll go again and will just walk, depending on how interesting my podcast is, i'll do at least 60, if not 90 mins. I did have a late, slightly salty dinner last night, so maybe that's part of the cause for my gain. Also just saw on my app that TOM is due in a few days, so that may be the other part. Once that's done I plan to feel all nice and slender
4 more days to get back below 70.0, just have to sweat it all out and not go crazy at a lunch with colleagues on Friday. I'm quite motivated to keep up the treadmill work because I have 3 weeks until my husband arrives and I want to be below the weight I was when I left, which was 71, grrr.
01/09 71.2kg (-0.1) 1539
I stayed up way too late, reading on my phone, so getting up was a challenge and late, so no time for yoga, I will do it tonight.
My macros finally look better for yesterday! But I'm still incredibly bloated, treadmill didn't really help. Went for a 55mins walk plus 20mins elliptical. Then had a healthy dinner. I did have almonds and biltong for a snack, but well within my cals so I'm not counting those an LNS. It was late and a snack, but kinda part of my dinner.
Today, my food is planned, I will not go to the gym but just do my yoga in the eve. I also need to catch up on some work, which i want to do from my sofa.
Oh come on, this is getting on my nerves now. So I'm definitely retaining some water, my feet look chubby. I suspect it's from my salty dinners (haloumi). I managed not to snack beyond biltong and almonds again last night. I kept thinking I want that bagel on the weekend, that I promised myself as a reward. So far, I haven't touched the popcorn I bought 2 days ago. I logged it and then deleted it again because I decided not to have it.
I managed to do two yoga days in the eve, which was nice. Today, I started with yoga, but I'm still very tired as rain woke me last night around 2.30 and I keep dreaming about work. Tonight, back on the treadmill for a run. Two days ago I wrote I'm motivatex, so I need to not let frustration overshadow that!12
My 1st round.
UGW 70KG or 65 if I'm still motivated!
01/06 88kg just starting out
01/07 86.9kg stayed in the green for food yesterday and was up at 5 am for 1st run of the year. 3 km using the Nike app and in the rain!
01/08 86.4kg in the green again yesterday and also did a little strength training in the pm
01/09 86.1kg in the green and strength training completed last night. Early morning run - just a short recovery run as Nike told me!
01/10 86.2 kg managed the training and tried to eat well at BF birthday but a tiny gain. Back on track today
01/05: 235.5. I ate 1700 calories and did 2 hours of exercise (lifting weights and walking).
01/06: 235.5. 1900 calories for the day. Walked for 90 minutes.
01/07: 235.0. I consumed 1900 calories. Lifted weights for 40 minutes and walked for 90 minutes. I'm still going higher than planned on calories, but it's still below maintenance along with a good amount of exercise.
01/08: 234.5. I'm glad to see a downward trend with my weight. It's been awhile since I've seen that. Around 2200 calories today because I ate at an Italian restaurant. I walked for 90 minutes and completed a 35 minute workout so I was still in a deficit.
01/09: 235.0. 2000 calories today. 35 minutes of weight lifting and 90 minutes of walking.

Goal weight for this round: 129.8
01/03 - 131.7 (didn't work out, ordered takeout 😖)
01/04 - 132.1
01/05 - 132.4 (ate the right food but did terribly with portion control. did a good workout though. Today is my one cheat meal for the week so expecting a spike tomorrow. Goal is to make sure I workout pre-cheat)
01/06 - 133.3 (cheat meal turned into cheat day, turned into booze and binge and takeout. Horrific. Hoping seeing these gross patterns in black and white will trigger something in me)
01/07 - 133.3 (worked out, ate low carb, could've definitely done better on portion control)
01/08 - 131.7 (ate pretty clean, limited portions, didn't work out though. Struggling to get enough water. Aim to do better on this front tomorrow.
01/09 - 131.1 (ate clean, limited portions, drank >3l of water and worked out. Only manage 20 mins of a 30 min workout though. Aim aiming for a minimum of 30 min of work out every week day because outside of that my lifestyle is very sedentary.)
01/10 - 130.8 (ate clean, limited portions, got enough water, but didn't work out.)

SW - 242lbs
GW - 238lbs
01/03 - 240.5lb - expected to lose some water weight from the kind of food I’ve been eating but also expect to lose some as TOM is due in next few days so I normally a lb or two with that. Getting back on track with healthy eating and putting all the festivities behind me
01/04 - 240.1lb - I’ll take this
01/05 - 238.25 - TOM started yesterday so water weight coming off and that combined with good deficits. Still feeling quite disappointed with a gain over Christmas however atleast its coming off quickly and not as bad as it first appeared. If this weight sticks I will set a new goal for this round.
01/06 - 239lb - slight fluctuation. Met with my family last night and they suggested doing a weekly weigh in again, this was how I actually became motivated to lose weight back in September and it worked well for a few weeks but then people dropped off and eventually it was just me doing it. I definitely find the accountability helps me but then find it really hard when others are on and off to keep myself on and not just join them if that makes sense. We will see how it goes 😅
01/07 - 237.85lb - slowly coming back off. I think I’d like at least another lb off by the end of this round so going to set a revised goal of 236.5lb.
01/08 - 237.1lb - I’m happy it’s moving but obviously this is all work I’d already done and then redone so not quite the same feeling about it. Will be happy when I’m hitting new lows again
01/09 - 236lb - - hopefully this number sticks around as that’s my goal for this round.
01/10 - 235lb - very nearly back to pre-Christmas low (233.8lb)
01/03- 62.60 kg
01/09- 62.25 - Sugar overdose yesterday
01/10- 62.20 - eat way too much sugar again!

@krea4 I am already so close. You have to push your self
GW this round 72.5
01/06 - 73.9kg This is my starting weight and the heaviest I have ever been without being pregnant! Today is the day this stops. Hoping to see a 1 kg drop by the end of this session. I know I can do this, I just have to get my head in the right place and keep in mind why I want to lose this weight.
01/07 – 73.4kg Ate pretty well yesterday, though still slightly above target. I was planning on exercising while my daughter was doing her gymnastics training, but I got involved with setting up and unpacking her new gym. I guess in a way that was exercise since I was carrying boxes and walking around a lot. I plan on doing a lot of exercise today though, including an hour of Zumba and an hour of adult gymnastics.
01/08 - 72.6kg Ate really well and stayed slightly under calories. I also got over 1000 calories worth of exercise. Plus, one more day alcohol free!
01/09 – 72.5 kg Ate a lot of salt yesterday in the form of McDonalds and popcorn. I am trying to make this a lifestyle change, not a diet, so I allowed myself to have the McDonalds I always have, but made sure I tracked it. Due to the fact that everything else I ate that day, minus the late night popcorn, was healthy, I manage to only go over my calorie goal by a little bit. I am actually quite proud of myself for this accomplishment.
01/10 72.6 - I am not surprised by this. Had migraine yesterday and slept until 11. I didn’t manage to get any workouts in and I took the easy route and ordered pizza for the family for dinner. I also had popcorn again while watching tv with my hubby. I think the popcorn eating is something I am going to have to work on, since I am eating it only because we are watching tv and I want it, not because I am hungry. However, I still managed to stay right at calorie goal. Hopefully with enough water, mindful eating and an easy workout today I can shed this little bit of gain so I can finish this round at goal.
Back for another year. Planning to post weight each morning, and post comments for the previous day.
In October 2017 I weighed 158lbs. My aim for 2019 is to reach 155.

THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieve permanent change.
REMINDERS One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
- Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
- A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
- Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
- The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
- Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
- The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
- When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
- Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.

Mini goal is to get back in the 230's.
UGW: 165lbs by the end of the year.
01/03 - 243.8...We had blizzard like weather yesterday so it was an in the house day. Managed to stay within calories, drink 125oz of water, do a walking video and shovel some snow.
01/04 - 242.4
01/05 - 242.0...walked for about 30 mins yesterday while shopping. Under calories and 75 oz ot water.
01/06 - no weigh in. Had a really bad day yesterday, and learned that my biggest food trigger is anger. I ate until I was sick and still feeling sick this morning from it.
01/07 - 241.0...stayed low calorie yesterday, under 1000 (mostly because I was still to sick to eat much) Did about 30 mins of walking and had 100 oz ot water.
01/08 - 241.6..went out for supper yesterday but kept it within calories, did water aerobics, helped my mother move a bunch of stuff and had 100 oz of water. Either up from sodium in supper or because it's a 3hr earlier weigh in than yesterday.
01/09 - 240.4
01/10 - 239.8..whoohoo!! Back to the 230's finally. Noticed on my trend tracker app today that if I get below 233 I will move from obese class 3 to class 2, so that is my new mini goal!

01/05 - 212.00 1st day back to clean eating

@Winner_in_Life OMGosh I Just read the blog and am literally in tears. As a person in remission with cancer, I ask myself these same things all the time. This is my story. I could have written this blog post! Often I feel stuck in a rut. With my weight, with my profession, with my whole life situation since my husband passed. How much time do I really have to change anything, including my own weight and health? I need to stop putting off those things that would please me most, like swimming or writing poetry, or reading more. I need to stop dying and start living while life has been gifted to me! Wow. I'll post later. Gotta seriously sit in this for a little while and let it bring me the strength I need to continue forward in an enlightened and more self-loving way.
Leaving for a short trip in a little while. I will post later this afternoon. Thanks so much for sharing. I am not alone. This is my greatest tool and blessing of all. I hope everyone will read the blog post too. Today is the day I am changed.
When I first came across this blog, I printed out all posts for 2 years and read all in one day. And now I am always checking for a new post. Very often she brings me to tears, but also to smile. She has a wonderful humor and she is a very good storyteller. And sense of humor is a great thing –it is easier to struggle through the difficulties and getting older… I wish you all the best, be strong and stay healthy5

Round 64 SW: 217.2
1/7—217.2—Hello friends and friends-I-haven't-met-yet! I hope everyone had some break time. I had some vacation days, some lounging about days, and some recharging my batteries for 2019 days. I'm starting this round at almost the same as my start weight for round 62, which pleases me.
1/8—219—Digestive whammy. I forgot to mention yesterday that I'm continuing on my quest to be able to do 100 pushups by the end of 2019. When I started, I could do 4. Now I can do 20! The program I'm using requires me to hit certain goals before I can move on to the next level, and I need to get to 31 before I can move on. In the meantime, I'm repeating week 4 a few million times.
1/9—221—Yikes! Okay, I know I ate some gluten free puff pastry treats last night, but this amount of water retention is insane. There is obviously pufferfish in my family tree.
There is a pushup challenge on here that I am trying to be a regular part of: 2019 Pushup and Sit-Up Challenge! Set your own Goals!3
01/02 - 192 - I know this is a day early, but I needed to start ASAP. Yikes! Those holidays really added up.
01/03 - 190.4 - I know these first pounds are water, but it’s nice to see the scale move.
01/04 - 189.7 - I stayed low carb all day yesterday even through the cravings.
01/05 - 190.6 - I knew my weight was up when I woke up this morning and couldn’t get me rings off. I was too high on carbs yesterday, but it’s ok. I’ll clean it up today and drink a lot of water.
01/06 - 189.7 - Did pretty well with food and water yesterday but still woke up feeling dehydrated. I have been trying to make sure I get lots of water today and stay low on the carbs.
01/07 - 189.2 - Made it through the weekend without giving into carb cravings. That’s an achievement for me!
01/08 -188.8 - While the number is good, I gave into my carb cravings yesterday. The weight will probably bounce back up tomorrow. I’ve eaten low carb today and packed a nice low carb lunch. Hopefully, I can keep working on breaking that carb addiction!
01/09 - 188.5 - Well, that’s surprising but I’m happy with it! I ate super low carb yesterday so that probably helped. I need work on drinking more water, so that’ll be my goal for today.
01/10 - 188.2 - Stayed low carb but I still need to work on drinking more water.
Hi everyone! I always have success in this group but totally ruin everything once I stop 😑 so anyway, I’m back! Debating trying 16:8 fasting- is anyone doing that while still eating semi-normal without having to meal prep? Is it working for you?? Thanks!
Hi. I am doing the IF. Too soon to tell if it is working. I also changed my type of foods I eat dramatically (but normal) at the same time, yikes!3
Heaviest Weight: 213
Recent Start Weight: 193 (January 2017)
I’ve been in maintenance for several months until the holidays, content at around 146. I am now OVER the point at which I didn’t want to be again (150), so I’ll be getting back on track to lose back down to at least around 146 or so. May try to go lower in the new year, but we will see. For the immediate future, I just want to get and stay back under 150.
Goal for round 64= 149.x
01/04= 151.8 Slowly headed in the right direction. I’ve really been doing better, but the scales are hard to move. I have been moving my body an incredible amount, really, but the scales are not responding as desired…yet! (The power of YET!)
01/06= 152.0 Last couple days of vacation, so it’ll be back to routine tomorrow.
01/07= 153.0 Home to a different set of scales. Done with vacation, so hoping this doesn’t stay long.
01/08= 151.0 That’s better! Felt good to eat right again yesterday. Have low carb lunch packed, but travel tonight, so I’ll have to be careful. Won’t be at a scales tomorrow morning.
01/09= traveling, no scales
01/10= 151.4 Up just a bit from sitting in the car way too much and not eating like normal, but I’ll take only .4.
