Round 80

Please join us! Starting on 06/12 JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, we will begin Round 80
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.


👍🏼👍🏼 This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE. 👍🏼👍🏼

    @cpanus, So sorry to hear that you need back surgery. I'll be praying that your procedure is successful and you have a full restorative recovery.

    **Goals Round 80**
    1) De-clutter - 0/2
    2) Try intermittent fasting 14:10 - 0/6 (1:00 or 2:00)

    ** ROUND 80 **
    Round # 14 for me
    06/21 <<<Round 80 goal weight: 369 >>>

    My journey …
    ("I May Not Be Where I Want To Be, but I’m Not Where I Use To Be!")
    In 2003 Weighed over 600 lbs
    In 2005 Weighed under 400 lbs
    In 2007 lowest weight after surgery 302lbs
    My highest weight was 611 in 2003. Weight in 2004 before weight loss surgery was 580. Lowest weight after surgery was 302 in 2007. "I May Not Be Where I Want To Be, but I’m Not Where I Use To Be!"

    I joined MFP on March 27, 2010 weighing in at 388 pounds. I was re-gaining weight and stumbled up on it while trying to get back on track. I was determined never to see 400+ on that scale again for me.

    I have been morbidly obese all my life. I have a lifetime of mental and physical scars from obesity. In October 2004 I had Gastric Bypass surgery. WLS (Weight Loss Surgery) was the best gift that I could and did give to myself.

    Between 2008 and 2010 I gradually gained back 80 of almost 300 pounds lost initially after weight loss surgery. I never reached my goal weight of 200 pounds. I still managed to keep off over 65 percent of the weight I lost which is very good and I am very proud of my accomplishments since 2004. It has literally changed my life for the better on all levels. I am here to lose re-gained weight and to reach my initial goal weight. I am in no hurry. I am taking this one day at a time and I am in it for the long haul.

    Surgery did not fix the head. It is a good tool and the best gift I have given to myself, but it was not the easy way out as many people think. Once the honeymoon period is over after the WLS it is up to the patient to keep the weight off.

    On August 29, 2011-- I was admitted to Intensive Out Patient Eating Disorder Program to learn how to manage my binge eating disorder effectively. The program is wonderful indeed and will be instrumental in me reaching all of my goals. The focus of this program was how to eat and not diet. Weight loss was not a goal of the program. I actually gained 20 pounds in program. But I had to get thru a lot of stuff and my the time I was released I had stopped gaining. I was discharged from program on December 3, 2011.

    My tool is still working for me today. My head is still the issue. SO the struggle continues. I will never beat myself up again. I fight the fine fight faithfully and positively everyday. Because that is what will get me to my goals one day. Even though it may not show up on the scale every day -- Everyday I make progress one way or another just by showing up, waking up and trying.

    Giving up is not an option for me. Perseverance, Patience, & Positive thinking will help me reach my goals…… and the same is true for you too!! :smile: We have the power within us.

    Thanks GrandmaJackie for getting these up for us!

    69 years old female...5'5" ...I used to be 5'7" but arthritis hit and I lost two inches, so now that two inches is squished around my waist like the billows of a big accordion... :D...Oh, well. I'll just keep working on it.

    Heaviest: 192.2
    RGW: 145.0
    UGW: 135.0

    06/10 - 146.0 at 5:00 a.m.
    06/11 -


    06/18 - Back surgery...will try to find a scale in the hospital. ;)
    06/19 - Hospital stay...
    06/20 - Hospital stay...
    06/21 - Homeward bound...maybe.


    The hospital will probably weigh you as part of the pre-op procedures, but, you should concentrate on your recovery from the op, don't be preoccupied and worried about weighing in. Try to make healthy food choices and keep hydrated, you can get back on the wagon when you are feeling strong enough. I shall be thinking of you xx.

    R78 SW 142.5 lbs / 64.4kg -***- EW 143.5 lbs / 65.1kg (gained 1lbs / 0.7kg)
    R79 SW 143.5 lbs / 65.1kg -***- EW 139.5 lbs / 63.3kg (lost 4lbs / 1.8kg)

    Round 80

    I'm 32 and from Glasgow, Scotland
    USW (July 2017) : 172 lbs / 78kg
    R80 SW: 139.5 lbs / 63.3kg
    R80 GW: 137 lbs / 62.1kg
    GW: 133 lbs / 60.3kg
    UGW: 126 lbs / 57.2kg

    R80 Goal: Round 79 (my 2nd round) was much better than R78, working my way to a 4lb loss! The goal for this round is to keep up with the training and controlled eating. I have Tough Mudder this round too and I can't wait!
    My overall aim for the whole month of June is to train consistently - with that should come the weight / inch loss.
    Also... 10K steps a day and more water!
