JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS ~ ROUND 73
I am now in my 4th round with all of you! I love doing this to keep me accountable. Let's keep it going everyone!
Location: Los Angeles, CA
SW for this challenge: 197.6
Mini GW: 192.0 to go on my very first diet break!
Ultimate GW: 141
Round 70: SW 202.6 EW 197.4 (-5.2 pounds)
Round 71: SW 197.4 EW 199.6 (+2.2 pounds)
Round 72: SW 199.6 EW 197.6 (-2.0 pounds)
04/03: 197.4 (A slight decrease, which is awesome! I did a core workout and made some vegetable soup with grilled cheese last night. I was so exhausted that I went to bed early. My energy level has been at a decline this week and I'm not sure why!)
04/04: 196.2 (This is a great drop! I haven't been this weight since November of 2015! I've restarted many many times, but at that time I went through a breakup in February of 2015 and lost wayyyy too much in an unhealthy way. I'm more motivated than ever and I hope it continues! Last night I did a 20 minute HIIT elliptical workout and ate some Cuban chicken, black beans and rice!)
04/05: 194.8 (I’m literally in shock! I didn’t do a workout last night and had steak with rice and peas for dinner. We also went to a celebration of life and I had a tiny bit of treats but nothing too crazy. I lost 1.8 pounds since last Friday and I’m thinking I’ve been overestimating calories? We’ll see if this trend continues since I have it set to 1.5 pounds a week.)
04/06: 196.2 (I did a 45 minute elliptical workout yesterday and I had a Chipotle vegetarian bowl that I’m regretting for lunch yesterday. Oh man that red spicy salsa!! Anyway, the hubby and I went on a date night last night to our favorite Mexican restaurant by our house. I saved half my dinner like I always do! The gain was expected. Even though I’m Mexican, those beans still bloat me up no matter what 😂)
04/07: 198.0 (Oh man! What a gain this weekend. I was on plan but I’ve been saving all my calories for the weekends and these gains are expected. I’m back to lower calories today. Last night I went to Panera for dinner and had soup and salad and did a 30 minute strength training workout!)
Lost down to 180 doing lazy keto last spring, but the summer vacations came and then the holidays
and I put all of the weight back on. I am going to be consistant with tracking my food...good or bad...and
get healthier this year.

I will be going out of town at the end of this round and again over Easter weekend, so April will be fun,
but a struggle weight wise.
04/03 191.0 Walked 13,000 steps yesterday and drank my water. Stuck to my plan, but had a glass of wine.
04/04 189.6 Yay! Let's keep moving down!
04/05 189.2 Planning to keep this downward trend going over the weekend. Want to get well into the 80's before my trip next weekend.
04/07 188.0 Walked 5 miles around the lake and did good with my food. Drank some wine by the fire pit, though......
04/12 Out of town14

Female, 5' 4 1/2 " age 53
Hi. My name is Trina. I've been mostly in since round 54, with a break for travel to NYC, appendicitis, and spring break. We spent spring break in Utah, day hiking in the national parks and logged 60 miles over 8 days. On vacation, I ate protein for breakfast, a reasonable lunch, a bit of gorp while hiking, corn chips after hiking (for the salt) and a large but protein & veggie heavy dinner. I didn't log, but mostly paid attention to what I ate. Happy to say that all the hiking meant I still ended up with a bit of a loss. I have about 10 pounds left to my current ultimate goal weight. Still hoping to get a bit leaner! We can do this!!!

04/04 139 Easy walk through the neighborhood with my mom yesterday. We went four miles, had to keep her moving after all the Utah hiking!
04/05 138.5 Took a fast four mile walk followed by a 5 mile walk with friends. Drank lots of water.
04/06 139.5 Good during the day, but had pizza and a brownie for dinner (salad, too). NSV--only ate one slice of pizza!
04/07 139.5 Off with my son and his team at a Destination Imagination contest all day yesterday. Eggs for breakfast, and eggs in a burrito for lunch. But the chocolate was calling me, and I indulged in a few mini- resees' peanut butter cups and mini kit-kats, and chocolate chip cookies squares. Salads and a brownie for dinner. Off to a better day today. Teddy's team did fantastic though and won the competition! Now to see if we can get support to compete at the next level!

***ROUND 73 (my 3rd)***Day/Weight/Comment
SW this round (4/02): 153
04/03 153 Off to a strong start! Yesterday I ate well, though I continue to struggle with meeting my protein goal of 60 grams. I'm always under. It's hard on just 1200 calories! How much that affects my fat loss, I don't know. Tomorrow I predict I'll be up by a few due to fast food meals with a lot of sodium...
04/04 153.6 I'll focus on the positive first: I made my step goal yesterday. Don't laugh when you read this- I did 2000 steps. You read that right. I have mobility issues and I'm usually at 1000 or less, so this was an accomplishment for me! Now for the negative...oh, wait, it's not as bad as I predicted! Only up by 0.6 lbs. Whew!
04/05 152.6 I did 3,267 steps yesterday just walking around the house more, and I'm so proud of myself. I got to eat grilled cheese and tomato basil soup with my family last night by tracking portions (half the sandwich, butter measured carefully, measured amount of soup).
I feel like I'm going to be successful this time because I'm doing 3 things in conjunction I've never done before: (1) weighing DAILY, (2) logging every bite and sticking to my calories DAILY, (3) giving and getting support from the MFP community DAILY. Oh, and perhaps equally important: (4) I'm being patient and forgiving, trusting the process enough not to freak out and give up if I stall or gain. This is a mindset shift, not a diet!
04/06 155.4 Per yesterday's insight, trying not to freak out. Had a lot of trouble eating enough yesterday, and didn't eat quality foods (cheeseburger, pizza, ice cream). Loaded with sodium. I know. Not at all balanced. Because I'm IFing, it is *sometimes* difficult to get in the junk plus the healthier stuff that would provide more balance and nutrients. The solution is obvious- eat the good stuff first, then add in treats if there's room, right? Better yet, skip the junk. I'll get there. But I'm not there yet. I've always gone extreme cold turkey in the past and burned out. This time, I'm focusing on not going over my calories, drinking tons of water, and moving more. The healhier foods will come eventually.
04/07 154.6 It was a slightly better eating day. Lunch was at a sub shop, dinner was BLTs with avocado (btw, my meatball sub sandwich was gross and I didn't even want to finish it, but I'd already accounted for it- anyone else ever make this mistake?). I was doing okay with my higher number on the scale until I realized from my MFP progress graph that it was the same weight as TWO WEEKS AGO. A real stall! I guess with all the bobbing up and down, I hadn't realized. Boooo. So then I felt super discouraged, but my MFP friends saved the day and gave me some great advice and encouragement. Two big takeaways: If I keep doing this, I'll be thrilled a year from now (strategy #4 from 4/05 check-in above) and I should be taking measurements to chart progress as well.

04/04 133.8 lbs - I did have a Starbucks drink yesterday ;;
04/05 132.6 lbs - Well this is a much better number, I haven't gone over any calorie goals so far.
04/06 132.6 lbs - I overate yesterday ;; enough to maintain weight. Its because I always get the munchies real bad when I watch shows. I will try to have more willpower next time.

04/04 153.2, need to be better about tracking food. I am good for breakfast and lunch and then at night I forget to log and weigh.
04/05 152.6, back at my lowest weight. Hope to be able to stay in the 152s through Monday.
04/06 153.3, back up but know it was from lasagna and caeser salad yesterday. Sodium was much higher than usual, but will make sure to be at 100 oz today of water and hopefully will be back down by Monday
04/07 153, ate well yesterday and exercised for 70 minutes on amt machine. Going to a basketball game tonight so weight might be more tomorrow, but going to enjoy the game!
Hi everyone, I am back for another round. So I am still floating around the low 150's, still waiting for that whoosh to get me into the elusive 140's. This round ends on a Friday and only has 1 weekend in it, so it should go well. No out of town events or anything crazy happening the next couple of weeks, so would love to get some real progress done in the next 10 days, but we will see. Ended the last round at 150.4, my body loves the 150's so much it doesn't want to let go for anything, lol. My goal this round is 149 anything, same as the last 2 rounds. Good luck everyone, glad to see that you are all coming back!
04/03 - 149.6 yyyeeeaahhh!!! I finally made it back here. It has taken some work though. Did well yesterday, did have an alcoholic drink once I got home last night, but other than that no bread and no sweets. Now just to continue to stay in this decade and not go back up. I officially only have 9.6 pounds left to lose. I am in single digits, lol.
04/04 - 148.8 What in the **** is going on. I can't believe I had another drop. I hit 150 something on 3/13 and could not budge from that number. Now I have had 2 nice drops on the scale in 2 days. I'm taking it and hoping to stay the course. I have officially lost 30 pounds as of today. I started trying to lose weight in July of 2018 and it has taken me a little longer than I thought it would. My initial time frame was 5 - 6 months to lose the whole 40 pounds I wanted to lose. 9 months and 30 pounds later I am still not at goal weight, but I am getting closer. Pretty much my average monthly weight loss is just over 3 pounds instead of the 6-8 I was striving for. Oh well, I finally made it to the 30 pound mark, so I am going to pat my self on the back and keep trucking. It's so funny because last week I was so frustrated and overwhelmed with the lack of progress I almost gave up. I'm glad I didn't and kept pushing my self. Somebody posted a couple of weeks ago that they actually weighed what their drivers license said they did, so I looked at mine. Well I put 150, which was obviously not the truth, but I actually weigh less than that now. No alcohol, bread, or sweets yesterday and staying on plan for today. My hubby and I do have date night with another couple planned, but I said I would drive (that way I have the perfect excuse not to drink any extra calories tonight). I love a good beer or cocktail on date night, but I will sacrifice the next couple of weeks to get where I want to be.
04/05 - 148.1 Didn't lose anything for weeks and in 3 days I lose 2 pounds. I am definitely expecting an uptick pretty soon. I only ate about 600-700 calories yesterday. I was slammed at work all day so only ate about 400 calories during the day and then by the time I got home, fed the family, did homework with kids, and then got ready myself, I was out of time. I grabbed a piece of grilled chicken I had cooked and a couple of bites of the mac and cheese and we left. Since I was driving I only drank ice tea at the bar and chose not to get any of the appetizers even though I was still kind of hungry. Normally I would have easily ate and drank a 1000 if not more calories last night, so I'm happy that I stayed the course. The play was good that we went to see and I had fun with our friends and my hubby, so all in all it was a great date night. Busy weekend scheduled like always, so hopefully I can stay on track and not gain to much for Mondays weigh in.
04/06 - 148.8 up a bit. Had some wings from hooters last night, but also a huge salad as my main course. So I’ll take the couple of ounces. 2nd oldest and middle child have prom tonight. So pictures and getting ready for that will be on the schedule for tonight. So far so good with my eating. Off to do shopping and errands. Hopefully will see another 140 something tomorrow.
04/07 - 150.3 expected! Texas Roadhouse for dinner last. So good! Just trying to stay on track today and maybe go down a couple ounces by tomorrow.
Please join us! Starting on 04/03 JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, we will begin Round 73
Anyone can join us at anytime during the round.
Join us! If we stay mindful we can do this, you can do this.
Welcome back past members, welcome new members, let's keep each other accountable for another 10 days!
Here is what you do: Post your daily weight and add little comments along the way of how your day went. Post everyday to let us know how you're doing! Copy and paste the days in your response--tell us how much you lost and other non scale victories (NSV) you'd like to share.
FOR NEWBIES - I find it easiest to copy the dates to a document or note in my device and edit it each morning. Then copy and paste to the message board. MFP will return you to the spot on the board where you left off on your previous visit which is nice to know if you like to scan all of the posts.
04/03 149.4 ~ (Steps 22,861) ~ Excellent day with my training plus a fabulous yoga session at night. Day 1 successful
04/04 148.8 ~ (Steps 17,979) ~ Yesterday was a tough day after lunch, I just couldn’t focus on getting my goals accomplished. On the bright side I was able to get a short walk in the evening. Also I’m managing NOT to eat AFTER between 5 or 6pm. Plus reducing my carb intake to about 20%. Day 2 successful
04/05 148.5 ~ (Steps 15,680) ~ Hit my goals, managed to not snack again, now the real challenge. Going into the week without breaking my focus, 👍🏼. Day 3 successful
04/06 151 ~ (Steps 16,575) ~ I had did wonderful until dinner time, we went out to Chinese so I over ate plus my sodium was extremely high, unfortunately, 👿😢👿
04/07 149.7 ~ (Steps 19,599) ~ I got right back on the horse, yay for me Day 5 successful

Round 72: -8.4
Round 71: +0.2
R73 SW: 232.1
Goal: a loss for round 73
04/03 232.6 . Whole family is working on our sleep hygiene. Think benefits for me could be reduced stress and fatigue which lead to emotional eating. Went to bed early last night but did not sleep well. Have a habit of stopping for a 32 oz iced tea on the way home from work and this is likely sabotaging my sleep quality.
04/04 232.1 Didn't have any caffeine yesterday! Wasn't feeling well last night. Think I have a recurring ulcer.
04/05 232.6 (forgot to weigh before breakfast) Had a rare lunch meeting at a restaurant yesterday. Very hard for me to guess the calorie content. Started listening to the “Losing 100 Pounds with Phat and Phit” podcast and enjoying it so far. I have a 40 min commute and have my main opportunities to overeat in the evening, so listening to a health podcast might help keep me focused on my goals.
04/06 232.4 Managed to make good choices part of the day yesterday. Emotions got the best of me during down time. Rarely have down time, but had 3 hours yesterday to myself. Doubts are creeping in. Think I may still just be processing this stressful week.

Alright, I am back after a couple of failed attempts of coming back and rather sporadic couple of months, little exercise and some gain.
For now, my goals are to get back to good habits of logging my food, eating healthily and posting here and then I finally want to make some real progress.

Female age 60
Achieved goal weigh of 125lb in summer 2016 by losing 66lb and have gradually gained between 7 and 11 since then; I don't want to gain any more, but would like to get back to my goal weight – but I am finding it difficult!
End of round 69 134.2 lbs
End of round 70 133.6
End of round 71 132.4
End of round 72 133.2
04/03 132.2 – a nice drop to start, but will it stay down? 6 ¼ miles walked yesterday plus 30 mins swimming
04/04 132.2 - 8 ¼ miles walked yesterday – today we move site to Great Malvern
04/05 132.2 - yesterday woke up to rain, sleet and snow so started the day with 45 mins swimming – rain didn't stop all day – no walking !!
04/06 131.4 - made up for not walking on Thursday by walking almost 14 ¾ miles yesterday and 69 flights of stairs as the first half of the walk was all climbing !! It felt good !!!
04/07 132.2 - walked 13 miles yesterday. Today we headed back home. I have to say that all my life I have never returned from holiday – even a walking holiday like this one, without putting on 4 or 5 pounds! I am so grateful for the support of this ground that at the end of a 10 day holiday I weigh less than when I started it !!

It occurred to me that this challenge - Just Give Me 10 Days - is 2 years old. I didn’t join until round 6 or 7 but want to thank @hillcrestbaby for starting it, @cyranda63 and @GrandmaJackie for continuing it, and @tiabirdie56 and the rest of us who have pitched in to keep it going. Is anyone still here from the original group? Happy birthday to us!
Happy Birthday to us!
Goal is to lose 2lbs
04/03 - 142.8 - dropped a pound already but I guess today was the official start so that’s where I’m starting.
04/04 - 142.5 - dropped .3 in a day, not too bad, that would be 3lbs by the end of this if I can keep it up.
04/05 - 141.6 - dropped .9 maybe going a little too fast. Didn’t quite reach my calorie goal yesterday but one day doesn’t hurt. I’ll try to be closer today.
04/06 - 142.4 - gained .8, i knew yesterday was a bit too fast but also had sweets yesterday and ate a little later than normal. It was a stressful day as well BUT its ok because today will be better and tomorrows weight will be less.
04/07 - 142.2 - small loss and more reasonable/expected results. I’ll take it. I also added in some Yoga yesterday previously I was just focused on eating right because have been on doc restriction from exercise but now I can add in yoga and I am so excited. I absolutely love Yoga. Yesterday’s practice was amazing.

THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving 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.

Original starting weight for this current journey : (1-11-2018) 235.0
R72 EW= 191.2

Short Term Goal: Lose 2 pounds this round.
First Long Term Weight Goal: To weigh 179 by my Birthday on May 10th by sticking to my plan to lose 1.5 pounds per week (or 2 lbs per round).
My Second Long Term Weight Goal: To weigh 169 by the 4th of July using the same plan as above.

04/02 …..191.2….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
04/03 …..189.6 ….. Those bits & pieces of calorie deficit & low carb each day finally added up to over a pound loss on the scale. Now I just need to stay focused. 1059 Calories In/2865 Calories Out. 8 Net Carbs. 17,881 Total Steps with a busy work day & a planned long walk. 8.56 Total Miles. IF 12:12 . 13/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 4 hours & 54 minutes. I took a long moderately paced walk totaling 150 minutes. I did not eat back my 717 Calorie burn for the walk. Another busy day at work. I must take the time to pre-plan my food so I don’t “grab & go”. That always ends in a nighttime binge & an overall disaster. Not today, nope, not today. Determined.
04/04 …..188.8 ….. More improvement. Such a busy work day yesterday with no time for planned exercise, but I was on my feet a lot for sure! Today will be even busier. I started spring cleaning in one of the cabins. EVERYTHING comes out, including furniture. Wall washing today! Yesterday’s stats: 1234 Calories In / 2601 Calories Out. 13,188 Total Steps & 5.58 Total Miles. IF 12:12 . Today I will go back to 16:8 in fasting as I was working on a metabolism reset. 12/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 4 hours & 13 minutes. Yesterday was another good eating day which paid off!
04/05 …..189.8 ….. Just not good at all. Worked physically hard yesterday but mostly not a lot of walking. Spring cleaning a cabin which I will complete today. Horrible stats for yesterday due to a binge late night. Best estimate on MFP food journal: 2340 Calories In / 2549 Calories out. 201 Net Carbs. 10,130 Total Steps & 4.31 Total Miles. IF 16:8 . 13/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 6 hours & 6 minutes which was probably a sugar crash. This is how it works & no amount of wishful thinking or regret can change it. Only I can through my actions. I’ll never give up.
04/06 …..189.8 ….. It comes off so much slower than it goes on! Holding steady thankfully after a late dinner out with son. I had a heavy work day again with little chance to exercise. Today I take my DGSs for their hair appointments & lunch. Tomorrow one of them has a birthday. I’ve got to get through these next two days without much damage so I will try to stay on high alert. Yesterdays stats: 1473 Calories In / 2471 Calories Out. 145 Net Carbs. 13,461 Total Steps & 5.7 Total Miles. IF 16:8. 12/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 4 hours & 37 minutes. Did elliptical for 16 minutes but exhausted from work day. Have a nice weekend everyone!
04/07 …..189.8 ….. It’s stubborn but so am I. I didn’t expect much movement after spending most of the day with my DGSs & my son yesterday but I enjoyed my time. Yesterday’s stats: 1850 Calories In/ 2123 Calories Out. Best guesstimate is 120 Net Carbs. 8,043 total steps & 3.4 Total Miles. IF 16:8. 11/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 5 hours & 38 minutes. I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday. I attended my DGSs 11th birthday party & enjoyed more family time.
