    08/20 - 148.2 haven't checking in the last couple of days. Father-in-law passed away very suddenly on Saturday night and sent us into turmoil. Bad eating on the go, stress, alcohol, no sleep, and dealing with husband and family has taken a toll. Back at work today, but honestly I am exhausted and my heart hurts for my husband. We are probably going to have to go to Texas where his dad lived, but right now we are just trying to figure out what is going on. Terrible ending to this round obviously, but it's life and sometimes you can't avoid life. My 10 day average is way up and I am almost 10 pounds up from the ending to the last round. This is what happens when you go from eating little to no carbs for months to eating sandwiches in the car, easy fast food items, no water, lots of alcohol, and no sleep. It is what it is and I will see if I can get it back down. I am sure it's water retention and stress.

    @jenn990205 I am so very sorry to hear about your FIL. My thoughts & prayers are with you & your hubby and the family. I hope you both can get some rest & some lovely reflection before you have to make a long or stressful trip. He is in Good Hands now.

    @jenn990205 My condolences on your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    @jenn990205 I’m truly sorry for your loss and will be praying for peace for you all. If you are traveling by car, low carb fast food options are possible. Order the sandwich with no bun or just take the bun off and toss it. Subway makes a good salad. When we drove cross country 2 summers ago with 3 teenagers the only “bad” place we ate was KFC and if you throw away the skin, even that isn’t horrid. I remember almost 27 years ago, spending all day every day for a week in the ICU waiting room before we took my FIL home to pass. Some member of the family brought in carb loaded stuff several toes a day and that was hard but I wasn’t LCHF then. Now that stuff doesn’t taste good. Having said that, again I’m sorry for your loss and hope these thoughts help you. 😘

    ** ROUND 86 **
    Round # 18 for me

    08/11 392.8
    08/12 395.0
    08/13 394.4 – Well I am back. Had a busy weekend. I am still trying to get back on track. I had a great WW meeting. I attended the meeting. The goal is to attend the meeting again Saturday and to lose weight. I had a 1.2 pound gain this week. For a total of 3.6 gain. ☹ But I am going to turn this around. Not worried, just going to keep at it is all. I got my 7000 steps in yesterday. My eating could have been better. I had a salad last night instead of fast food.

    08/14 395.8 :| Salty foods but an overall ok day.

    08/15 394.4 back down or a maintain. :) I will take it…. Struggling. Trying to eat better today. I got my 7000 steps yesterday and will get them today. Keep rocking it you all--I see a lot of losses! :flowerforyou: If you have not lost today that is ok too because you are here and checking in and that is what counts and will help you on your journey. It will help us all get there. Keep up the good work Everyone!! :flowerforyou:

    08/16 392.6 :smile: Another blue day and another blue dot day yesterday too! Not enough blue dot days this week to have a loss this week at WW's weigh in tomorrow. But I am going for weigh in and staying for meeting also. I will make 5 days in a row 7000 step goal this week if I get it today which I will. Eating has been pretty good today too. My goal this weekend is to get in the 380's by Monday. I have a BBQ tomorrow and I must make Mac and Cheese for it. Not sure what I was thinking when I volunteered to bring M&C. But I have a plan. As long as I don't have 2 bad days on weekend, I usually do ok. But 2 bad days is never good. Have a great weekend everyone!! :flowerforyou:

    08/17 388.4 :smile:

    08/18 389.4 I stayed in the 380’s today! Hopefully I can stick it tomorrow. I had a lot of salt today and not enough water. The good thing is I have tomorrow to drink my normal water quota. It is normal for me not to get in enough water on the weekends. After 2 weeks of gains at WW I finally lost yesterday, and it was my 2nd week staying for the meeting! It was a very good meeting -- just what I needed. I got my 7000-step goal 7 days in a row this week! And today over 10,000 steps with a DVD and some cleaning! I am afraid to increase step goal. I am going to leave it at 7000 for a while. This is a 1st. Yesterday and today I did a Leslie Sasone dvd. I am getting back on track…yeah!! I got some more de-cluttering done this weekend. Next weekend I am going on a short weekend trip with friends. So I need to plan well. Have a good week MFP friends! :flowerforyou:

    08/19 387.6 :smile: Almost at goal for this challenge! Got step goal in today and another blue dot day.

    08/20 387.6 :smile: I missed my goal a little bit, but I feel good about my progress this past 10 days for sure. I lost 5 lbs. in 10 days! That is not too shabby at all. No happy dance for me this time. I want to be more consistent 1st.

    <<<Round 86 goal weight: 387 >>>

    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.
