@krea4 I am in the same weight as yesterday. We have also in the office a lot of sweet things. But I just pretend I don’t see them. I am happy with my small chocolate in the morning. At least most of the time. Yesterday I had few ginger sticks in dark chocolate. This might be the reason that there is no weight change today. But I like the sooo much

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 1636
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 1491
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) 1588
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.
01/10 71.2kg 1503
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 motivated, so I need to not let frustration overshadow that!
01/11 70.8kg (-0.4)
Ok, Ok, I will keep reminding myself to trust the process... It actually puts me at 2kg for the round, which is good. I guess those 3 weeks over Christmas did more damage than I wanted to admit.
I also realise that I set my goal to only 0.25kg/week because of how little I walk at the moment. I'm not eating back exercise cals, logging them at only 1cal, but the rate of loss is probably what it should be. I had just been hoping for more. However, the 1540cal/day often leave me hungry, maybe I need to go back to more in between snacks (healthy of course and more protein) and smaller portions for meals.
I do have a NSV this week, usually, my resolve to not snack at night lasts a day or two. but this week, I've done 4 days without. I mean I had almonds and a couple of rice waffles last night, but I never went back to get more.
@Kristawatkins52 popcorn is also my go to snack, but this week, I have been really strict and asked myself "do I really want it? is it worth not seeing a drop?" I have to do this several times during the eve, while sipping tea, but 4 successful days and counting
@quiltingjaine I now decided to get myself a fitbit as a reward after thinking about your advice. I had been thinking about getting one and now I decided it is a good reward and I should see it as that.
So, fitbit users, which one do you have and what do you like/dislike about them? I was thinking Alta HR or Flex2, I don't want a big smartwatch. Or I am also happy to consider alternative trackers? I've done some research online, but haven't made up my mind just yet.
@MadisonMolly2017 well done! you can be very proud of yourself
@fraukazi THANK YOU!!6

TerriRichardson112 Posts: 15,904 Member@fraukazi I have the Fitbit Alta HR. It's compact and I wear it with a leather watch strap. I find it does all that I require.
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.

12/01: xxx: Goals
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.
GrandmaJackie Posts: 33,931 Member@fraukazi, about two years ago, I switched from a Fitbit to a garmin. The garmin you don’t have to charge plus I can track my activity in the pool. I think though now a Fitbit Charge 2 maybe waterproof too.1

5’4” 61yo female
01/07 – 201 – just starting - I’m ready to begin!
01/08 – 200.4 – Logged all food, walked, drank all my water, and no alcohol!
01/09 – 200.4 – Logged all food, walked, drank all my water, and no alcohol! Need to keep this up.
01/10 – 199.7 – YEA! Below 200! Logged all food, walked, drank all my water, and no alcohol!
01/11 – 1997.7 – still below 200! Same as yesterday. Now the hard part, the weekend!
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.
01/11 - 187.7 - No carbs yesterday, but still not enough water. After a few days of exhaustion, I’m starting to feel more consistent energy without the spike and crash of carbs. Unfortunately for my eating habits, I’m going to north to ski country for a couple of days. Cold and snow = carb central. I probably won’t have a scale so I’ll try my best to stay on track the next two days! See ya in round 65!
1/5=196.2. Started Keto 3 days ago,pretty amazing but probably water. Still doing IF too.Hope that I can keep this focus bc I plan on only doing this do 2 weeks. After all my honest attempts with little success this is just unbelievable. Love all of your posts.Those 4 W's are a perfect reminder,Weigh,water,workout & Watch.Thank you,G
1/6=194.0. What???? Hard to imagine this loss after working for so long. Hope this downward trend continues.I am focused with Keto,water & workouts. I am so thrilled
1/7=193.9 Good day yesterday,plan on doing it all over today.
1/8=193.0 Now I do get that Keto does work.Not as hard as I expected,Eating berries&roasted (acceptable veggies) in my new airfryer,along with protein& always water.Fingers crossed that this continues.
Everyone have a Joyful day
1/9=192.9. I do continue to track everything,drink water,calories counted&under,most days exercise.I will have a few real challenging days this week.Hope that I can keep up this pace then.
1/11=191.7 Going to swim class today,missed a few bc it is so cold & snowy.No excuse though.I walked & biked right here but difficult to get 10,000steps,
R61EW = 195.6

R63EW = 194.2

01/09 193.8 weird but I’ll take it
01/03 - 166.4lbs
01/04 - 166.6lbs
01/05 - 166.6lbs... hmm!
01/06 - 166.6lbs... lol, staying the same is better than a gain I suppose!
01/07 - 165.9lbs... yay!
01/08 - 165.8lbs... today marks the day that I start Synthroid for the rest of my life. Prepping for surgery (in a couple weeks) to remove the other half of my thyroid due to cancer. Hoping the meds help rather than hinder my weight loss success!
01/09 - 165.8lbs
01/10 - 166.2lbs
01/11 - 165.9lbs
Round 64 - my 4th round
Round 61 11st 12lb (-1 lb)
Round 62 11st 11.6lb (-0.5lb
Round 63 11st 11.8lb (+0.2lb)
01/03 11st 10.4lb Was not feeling too well yesterday so didn't quite manage to eat all of my calories which explains the loss. Better today but I do have a sore throat.
01/04 11st 11lb Slightly up. I did have to estimate my breakfast out yesterday but it couldn't have been much more than I put and I had a lot of exercise calories that I didn't eat which wouldn't explain the difference. But I'm not too worried
01/05 11st 10.2lb Happy with this although it only takes me down 0.2lb from starting weight of round. Still not feeling well. I'm beginning to think I would have been better staying at home for Christmas instead of picking up bugs from family!
01/06 11st 8.8lb Not surprised with this as I didn't eat all of my calories yesterday. That's due to not feeling well still. I'll have to be careful when I'm feeling better and more active that I keep to my calorie limit as I don't want to under eat anymore than over eat.
01/07 11st 8.0lb Late weigh in this morning. At the moment I'd rather feel better than lose this weight by not being able to eat properly. I have a committee meeting this evening so I need to give myself a little push today and stop lounging around
01/08 11st 7.8lb. Weight loss has slowed slightly which is good. I was worried it was going too fast this month. Yesterday I cooked chips for the first time and not only managed to calorie count them but managed to keep within my fat and calorie level for the day. I am still eating lower than my planned calorie level but I hope by going out today and getting some exercise my appetite will increase.
01/09 11st 8.0lb Late weigh in. Slight increase which I'm not surprised at, except I did get out and walked for the first time in 3 days! I didn't eat any of my exercise calories but I also didn't eat all my allowed calories either. This I think shows me that I will gain on 1200 calories, and I'm only losing when I don't eat all of them. So the solution really is that I do have to more exercise if I want to lose on 1200 calories. Everything weighed properly.
01/10 11st 8.2lb Slight gain. I ate 1249 calories yesterday out of an allowed 1380 (including exercise calories) I only ever lose weight when I eat under 1200 calories or I when I get a lot of exercise calories and only eat a few of them. I went over because I had a second truffle - but I was feeling cold yesterday in the house and I think that led to me eating over my fat allowance. I usually manage to stay within my macros
01/11 11st 9lb No idea how I've put a pound on. I recorded under my calories yesterday and ate none of my exercise calories. I really want to lose that pound today for the end of the round. Thank goodness I didn't eat the crisps I was pining for!
Hi all, I'm too late for Round 64, but I am looking forward to round 65.10

My goal for this round is to get in to the 240s.
01/01 - 253.6 - 2019 Start Weight
01/02 - 251.8 - 20# Milestone. End weight of R63. Start weight for R64.
01/03 - 253.8 - I'm sick and my BF is sick. Neither of us felt like cooking. I ate a lot of bread, oatmeal & oatbran yesterday that all tend to stick to me for a couple of days. Sick or not, I can eat! lol If I eat high protein/low carb today I should be back down tomorrow.
01/04 - 251.8
01/05 - 252.2
01/06 - 250.8 <<< new low for this attempt at weight loss. I did hit 248.8 last May (down from 274.2 in Jan/18) so I'm only 2 pounds away. I know it's not productive to think about where I could be right now had I stuck with it but I do kick myself for regaining most of it back (271.8) At the very least, it would've been better to stay and maintain the new low weight until I was ready to lose more. I'm determined to keep going this time!
01/07 - 250.4
01/08 - 250.8 - weighed earlier than yesterday
01/09 - 252.2 - I ate 1329 calories AFTER dinner last night. I get so tired of myself.

01/11 - 253.0 - I did this last year as well - kept sabotaging myself whenever I got close to getting out of the 250s. When I finally did get in to the 240s, I ate myself back up again and threw in the towel. I don't want to do that this time. I hope that by sticking with these challenges that I'll eventually get over my stumbling blocks.
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.
01/11= 152 Ugh, I am self-sabotaging right now. Please, Dear God, I NEED to hike tomorrow!!! Hiking was my sanity and I haven’t been on a trail in months.
Form good habits, and they’ll be just as hard to break as bad ones! ~Anonymous
My goal for 2019 is to get into ONEderland. Changing my life.
SW: 245 (R63 starting 12/30/2018)
End R63: 245 (0 loss; lowest 244.4 & avg 244.7 over the 4 days)
Round 64 FIRST full 10 day round!
R64 my focus will be to not break my tracking streak since 12/28 and being active every day in some way shape or form! Get up out of the chair from work, reading or tv and MOVE! Focusing on baby steps and correcting so many bad habits! Goal is to reach 240-243 and make it stick.
01/03 - 244 - I guess yesterday’s bounce up was the fluke as I’m starting today’s round a pound lower! Rain and did not follow through with indoor bike.
01/04 - 244.4 - Yesterday reflection on the bump on the scale. Well deserved due to some choc cake and wine at bunco. Positive note. Stuck to raw veggies and lunchmeat at bunco to offset and tasted but did not eat the whole piece of cake! No exercise. Did not get up from chair during long day at work. Craved chips around 5 after work and gave in… tried carrots but then caved limiting the damage counting out the chips… slapping my own hand. 2 days back at work and again losing focus on exercise Wed & Thurs! This cannot continue!!! Prioritize yourself over work. Today’s challenge will be 1/2 day work then driving 7 hours today for a funeral tomorrow. Then turning around Saturday and driving home. Take clothes for the hotel gym.
01/05 - @ hotel no scale; followed through with my commitment and went to the hotel fitness center at 6am! 45 min on a bike hoping that it will make up for any damage from mexican food the night before. The rest of today will be funeral, combined sit down lunch/dinner after funeral with the large family then driving back from Arkansas to Texas.
01/06 - 247 - hoping this is sodium and just not moving much over the past couple of days traveling. We’ll see. Today walking around boat show and eating mindfully. AND drinking water.
01/07 - 243.9 Wonderful to see that yesterday was the fluke that I suspected. Today’s mindset is to not sit all day … get moving. Hopped on bike and went for 2 walks during work breaks! 11 day tracking food in MFP! Drank more water yeah me!
01/08 - 244.8 hmmm lots of salty stuff yesterday and a larger portion of my dinner than necessary. Need to learn to not just split with DH but take an even smaller portion. Reminder - It is okay to leave food on the plate. Restaurant lunch challenge today ... so planning to be mindful when ordering.
01/09 - 243.3 Yesterday picked a restaurant without chips on the table, ordered a side Mediterranean salad (cucumber & tomato) to offset the shoe string fries that came with the crab cake. Extra $ but so worth it! Water was my friend.
01/10 - 243.3 Bike and walked yesterday in addition to tracking and drinking water. Feels wonderful. Today worked and only walked to the mailbox then driving all evening. When we stopped for fast-food I choose the small hamburger (no cheese & no bun oil)!
01/11 - @ Camp no scale. 15 day streak on tracking! Will not have a scale Fri-Mon so I'll have to be accountable to myself without the scale and call yesterday's WI the end weight for this round and the start of the next until I return home on Tues. Plan to walk 4 miles
01/12 - @ Camp no scale.11

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!
01/11 - no weigh in, didn't even think of the scale this morning. It is my sons first day of kinderstart so I'm a ball of emotions! Can't believe he is starting school, time is going way to fast! 😢 Kind of glad I missed the weigh in this morning anyway..ate at around maintenance yesterday, had only 25oz of water and no exercise. We ended up going out of town to visit family so that threw my day off and than we went out for supper with my mom when we got back. Will be a better day today and if my son doesn't stay up to late tonight I'm finally going to get back to the gym (it's been months)
I’m 42 and currently ~225. I’d like to lose 75lbs, maybe more. I tend to get overwhelmed when I think about how much I need to lose and then I give up as soon as the going gets tough. I struggle with consistency.
01/03 - 223.4- I did a 30-min cardio video and stayed within my calories for the day.
01/04 - 222.2- awesome strength workout and decent eating day. 64oz water (most in a long while). No mindless eating (big for me). Stayed within my calories (eating some exercise calories)
01/05 - 222- I am so proud of myself. Today is my son’s birthday and last night we had his family dinner celebration. I exercised in the morning and ate super light all day to prepare for the big meal. I ate 1500 calories for dinner! 😱 But I didn’t eat all day and still eat that big of a meal, which is huge for me. I managed to stay under 1800 calories for the day (1580 is my goal). Also I exercised 5 days in a row this week.
01/06 - 221.6-yesterday was my son’s birthday and my friend and I took a small group to play Airsoft. The boys play a round then come back for a rest. So, my friend and I walked while they were out. It helped me get over 13,000 steps and my 6th consecutive day of exercise. Despite having chorizo for breakfast, just snacking for lunch, and pizza for dinner, I stayed under my calories for the day. I’m a teacher and today is the last day of break. Tomorrow is when the real challenge begins.
01/07 - 221.6- I ate okay all day but didn’t move much and didn’t drink all of my water. Still, no gain and I’m down 3.4lbs in a week so I’ll take it!
01/08 -221.4- I went back to work Monday after 2 weeks off. We had professional development which means lunch out. I am thrilled I made a good decision there. I did a 20-minute HIIT workout after my dinner settled, so I can check off my Monday workout commitment! More water tomorrow (only 5 cups today).
01/09- 222.0- My first increase. Not going to worry about it because I know I’m on track. I did my 3rd strength training exercise (since getting back on track) and it felt amazing. It makes me wonder why I ever stopped in the first place. My only struggle right now is that my fat consumption is a little high each day. I’m mostly worried about tracking, exercise, and staying within my calorie range so I’ll worry about that later.
01/10- 221.6- I stayed within my calorie allowance but decided not to exercise (it was late, I was sore and felt I would benefit more from rest). I got a great night sleep.
01/11- 221.8- I’m not going to lie. This teeny yo yo hurts because I’m working so hard. But this is not a sprint. I know it will go down if I keep at it!
