    Day 99 - 11/20:
    Day 100 11/21:

    Went for a 6 miles hike yesterday and today! I will be seriously sore tomorrow! Not thrilled with my weight, but I know it will come down... eventually.

    Insane doctors appointment. My new doctor does not want me to be vegan and thinks I have an eating disorder because I weigh myself every day 🙄. This was only mentioned due to larger than usual weight fluctuations and previous high creatinine levels - I wanted to make sure my kidneys weren't an issue. She kept telling me I was far thinner than the average woman. Why should that be a consideration? I don't eat or live like the average woman, so you'd expect me to look different too, would you not? And since when did looking different from most people become a benchmark of health???? I cannot believe I heard this from a medical professional. Most doctors wish they had patients cared about their health as much as I do! I know because my other doctors tell me so!

    Yes, the anger fueled my hike 😁. Was going to go to the gym instead. Was over 50 degrees and sunny for a bit - need to take advantage of the nice days!

    Sorry about the rant, just needed to vent.

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ August 14, 2019 through November 21, 2019
    My Name is Donna, Age 59. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA


    145320379.png


    “What you eat in private will show up in public.” ~Unknown


    Day 01 – 08/14 ……197.8……
    Day 02 – 08/15 ……195.4……Whoosh! A good day yesterday. Stayed on point all around.
    Day 03 – 08/16 ……196.0…… Oops. Pizza.
    Day 04 – 08/17 ……196.2…… Normal fluctuation. A conservative dinner out yesterday in which I showed much restraint.
    Day 05 – 08/18 ……196.0…… A bit better.
    Day 06 – 08/19 ……196.0…… Backyard BBQ always stalls me.
    Day 07 – 08/20 ……195.4…… A nice well-earned overnight drop.
    Day 08 – 08/21 ……196.7…… So happy I found the part 2 challenge. It is exciting to do the whole thing this time. I had an increase due to DQ yesterday. My own fault & today I’ve paid for it. Good luck everyone!
    Day 09 – 08/22 ……196.2…… Better. I fought the cravings last night & won.
    Day 10 – 08/23 ……194.4…… WooHoo! Worked hard for this yesterday eating just 1100 calories and burning over 3200. “ Let’s just keep it up Donna,” she says to self!
    Day 11 – 08/24 ……196.6…… Fish fry dinner out last night. Stayed within calories but over on carbs. No worries. Today is remedy day. Flushing sodium!
    Day 12 – 08/25 ……196.4 ……s..l..o..w.. progress. But it’s a journey, right?
    Day 13 – 08/26 ……193.0…… Travel Day. I hope I choose well & I don’t come home & blow the whole day bingeing just because I had a nice restaurant lunch while out of town. That’s the goal today! Scale will be up a bit tomorrow, but hopefully it will be just water retention that can be erased within 48 hours.
    Day 14 – 08/27 …197.8…… After Travel Weigh-in. Nearly 5 pounds gained overnight! Much of it has to be water from the restaurant food & the late night binge I spiraled into. I’ll be working hard on flushing today & making good choices.
    Day 15 – 08/28 ……195.6…… Losing some of that binge & travel weight from Monday. More to go…..
    Day 16 – 08/29 ……195.4…… BBQ last night stalled me a bit, but still moving slightly down on the scale.
    Day 17 – 08/30 ……193.6…… Extra low calories & carbs yesterday on purpose to shake things up! Yes to the whoosh. Today, back to my normal healthy plan & hopefully another difference (even if small) on the scale. Progress is what counts!
    Day 18 – 08/31 ……192.6…… Thrilled with this but traveling today so I must keep myself in control!

    Weight Loss in Auguast (18 days)……………….. 5.2 lbs

    Day 19 – 09/01……192.6…… Staying level with the scale, even over a holiday weekend so far. Going to try to keep it strong!
    Day 20 – 09/02 ……194.2…… I ate 885 Calories last night and gained 1.6 pounds. Wow!
    Day 21 – 09/03 ……194.8…… I obviously enjoyed my Labor Day Holiday. However, body is acting weird on scale (see yesterday) so its time to shake things up!
    Day 22 – 09/04 ……194.8…… Still shaking!
    Day 23 – 09/05 ……194.6……slightly better thanks to bathroom duty TMI. But I really need to work harder toward the 180’s. Going on a picnic later but will be mindful & will hike along river while there to offset the meal. I want the 180’s this month. I mean, I REALLY REALLY want it!
    Day 24 – 09/06 ……193.0……I really shook it up yesterday. Hiked instead of just walked and added a few carbs by having a lovely riverside picnic near the trail. Also danced for almost 20 minutes last night. Sample song, “To Love Somebody” by the Bee Gees. It wasn’t fast, but it got a great vibe & groove on and put me back in the mood to stay on my journey. Music working its magic! I hope you'll put that little 3 minute song on and be inspired today. Join me!
    Day 25 – 09/07 ……193.4……A slight gain because of a very severe diabetic sugar drop late last night that forced me to eat carbs specifically laid out by my doctor’s plan for my Type 2 Diabetes. Otherwise, I had a great on point day with calories & extra exercise. Moving on.
    Day 26 – 09/08 ……193.4…… Happy with this after the fresh zucchini bread from my neighbor last night!
    Day 27 – 09/09 ……193.6…… Finished off the zucchini bread last night so I just barely treaded water. Back to business today!
    Day 28 – 09/10 ……193.6…… Same old song & Dance. Come on September, throw me a bone!
    Day 29 – 09/11 ……193.6…… I hope for a whoosh tomorrow before the travels!
    Day 30 – 09/12 ……195.4…… Unexpected travel yesterday causing gain today. Now Travel & restaurant again today for an occasion. Another gain expected tomorrow due to probable water retention & lack of exercise/movement. Uggg.
    Day 31 – 09/13 ……197.8…… After Travel weigh-in. Likely a lot of water retention. I’ll be working on this the next few days.
    Day 32 – 09/14 ……197.4…… Still retaining traveling water from sodium filled meals & lack of movement!
    Day 33 – 09/15 ……193.0…… Whoosh! There goes that water retention from the Chinese food. Now, to stay on track until the next travel day.
    Day 34 – 09/16 ……191.0…… I just can’t tell you how thrilled I am. I really worked hard for this yesterday!
    Day 35 – 09/17 ……190.6…… I really needed these drops these past few days. Upcoming travel again which always reeks havoc but it’s usually a temporary set-back.
    Day 36 – 09/18 ……191.8…… Out of town travel with lots of car sitting & restaurant is in the day’s plan this afternoon. I ate too much (a double helping) of my “diet” pre-prepped food last night. It showed up on the scale this morning. And now travel with restaurant today. This required trip came at a bad time.
    Day 37 – 09/19 ……195.0…… After travel weigh-in. Very disappointed. I practiced more restraint than normal at the restaurant. Food choices not the greatest, but quantity of food eaten much smaller than days gone by. Water retention sucks!
    Day 38 – 09/20 ……193.2…… Dropping some of the water weight. More to go!
    Day 39 – 09/21 ……193.0…… Every little bit counts! TMI would really help!
    Day 40 – 09/22 ……193.0…… Holding steady even after a T2D glucose drop which forced me to eat a few more carbs than I’d planned. I stayed calm and did not quickly overeat (which is the instinct) and used the smarties candy method my doctor advised. It worked. I stayed on track with my diet plan without too much damage to my macros.
    Day 41 – 09/23 ……193.0…… No change again.
    Day 42 – 09/24 ……192.2…… That’s more like it!
    Day 43 – 09/25 ……192.2…… Travel Day #1. This means less movement, restaurant food and less water, but I’ll really try to improve on all 3 today keeping my goals in mind as much as possible.
    Day 44 – 09/26 ……196.6…… Travel Day #2 and after travel weigh-in. I hate the water retention after a restaurant meal! I promise I didn’t eat the 15,000 calories that are required for a true 4 ½ pound gain! Lack of movement in car doesn’t help either. I was up late just working to get in my 10,000 plus steps!
    Day 45 – 09/27 ……198.0 …… After two days of travel. I’m very disappointed in myself. Today I am home, I have frozen pre-prepped meals & I will be on track. Weather is bad so I’m not sure about my activity yet, but food will be on point!
    Day 46 – 09/28 ……192.6…… Huge fluctuation up then back down due to water retention. Now its time to get back to work on the real fat!
    Day 47 – 09/29 ……192.2…… Pleased with this today. Come on 180s!
    Day 48 – 09/30 ……192.0……

    Weight Loss in September……………….. -0.6 lbs.

    Day 49 – 10/01 ……194.2…… This is what traveling looks like on me. Not a good way to start October!
    Day 50 – 10/02 ……191.4…… I tackled the bloat & won the game! Now, back down to real fat loss!
    Day 51 – 10/03 ……191.6…… A normal fluctuation. Ate on plan. Exercised as planned with a 3 mile walk. Under calorie. Good Carb Count. Calories burned 3093. Over 18,000 steps & nearly 8 miles walked yesterday. Progressing well.
    Day 52 – 10/04 ……191.4…… A good day overall. Dinner at neighbors forced me to make good judgments (home is safer) but I did pretty well.
    Day 53 – 10/05 ……189.6…… I have not been in the 180’s in a very long time folks! Beyond thrilled & truly worked hard for it yesterday. It payed off.
    Day 54 – 10/06 ……188.8…… My first short-term goal was to be 187.X by Halloween. So far I’m crushing it! So proud of myself. Now, just to avoid self-sabotage and keep up the good fight!
    Day 55 – 10/07 ……187.2…… Travel Day. I hope I don’t ruin all my progress. Thanks realgirl177 for the shout-out. I’ll take all the encouragement I can get!
    Day 56 – 10/08 ……188.2…… After-Travel weigh-in. Chinese Food. Need I say more?
    Day 57 – 10/09 ……189.2…… Very long Travel Day. Perfect diet & exercise yesterday. Not sure why the bump up but it too shall pass…..
    Day 58 – 10/10 ……191.8…… After-Travel weigh-in. Back home in my “safe zone” & able to fit in more fitness today too! 4.6 lbs up from Monday morning before my first trip this week. Hopefully lots of water retention and not all fat!
    Day 59 – 10/11 ……189.8…… Coming back down after the travel. Back home where my house isn’t booby-trapped! LOL
    Day 60 – 10/12 ……189.8……
    Day 61 – 10/13 ……190.2……
    Day 62 – 10/14 ……190.0…… Working hard.
    Day 63 – 10/15 ……189.9…… A beautiful hike yesterday at the Bayou following the river. Gorgeous fall colors & a crisp but sunny day here in Northern Michigan. Rain expected today.
    Day 64 – 10/16 ……190.1…… A perfect day then…..A late night sweet binge. I hope this number reflects the only damage, but I will have to watch the scale for a few days to see the total picture. So disappointed!
    Day 65 – 10/17 ……189.0…… Okay. That’s better. The sweet binge apparently does not retain the water (weight) like a savory binge or sodium-high restaurant meal. Whew! Close call & working it back down now!
    Day 66 – 10/18 ……188.2…… It’s going great. Fish fry tonight at the local restaurant with friends. Sodium packed! I will try hard to be mindful but I’m still working on control in restaurants. I’ll get there eventually.
    Day 67 – 10/19 ……188.0…… Went out to dinner last night locally. I tried to make good choices and control quantity. A small drop today so it really paid off to be extra mindful, which is something have a hard time doing in restaurants. Proud of myself this morning!
    Day 68 – 10/20 ……189.0…… Drats. I didn’t realize at first that I’d gained an entire pound overnight! Working on this today!
    Day 69 – 10/21 ……189.2…… Must be a normal fluctuation. I walked almost 11 miles yesterday, only ate 900 calories and burned over 3200. Fluid.
    Day 70 – 10/22 ……192.8…… Emergency travel yesterday for a family problem. Wow, a few extra carbs & it goes up POUNDS! I’ll be working on this hard today.
    Day 71 – 10/23 ……188.2…… Very low carb & cals yesterday to eliminate bloat. Extra exercise/work time to burn, burn, burn. Back to basics today. I hope to continue to make progress in a healthy way.
    Day 72 – 10/24 ……188.4…… A normal fluctuation of muscle fluid. Extremely sore today from the past few days of yard work. Yesterday I walked over 25,000 steps, burned over 3100 calories. Walked over 10 miles. At almost age 60, my body is screaming “STOP”, but snow is in the near prediction and there’s still more to do before its arrival.
    Day 73 – 10/25 ……187.2…… Finally the meal planning & extra exercise showed up on the scale. The work days are hard but the paydays are fantastic!
    Day 74 – 10/26 ……186.6…… Avoided a binge last night. Whew, it was so close! I am proud of the strength I showed in powering through it. It was UNBELIEVABLEY tough!
    Day 75 – 10/27 ……187.8…… A perfect day of diet & exercise. Then along came the “charity” goodies I bought for “my son” which will help my grandson's graduating class in a few years. I ate half and it rewarded me with a 1.2 pound gain! I’ll be drinking more water today & keeping calories and carbs in check. Next time I will donate the dollars & not take the goodies!
    Day 76 – 10/28 ……187.8…… No change. Good night last night. Resisted more than the average bear!
    Day 77 – 10/29 ……188.8…… A bit over on carbs & calories yesterday. Today will be a good day. Travel tomorrow.
    Day 78 – 10/30 ……188.8…… Travel Day for Breast Cancer Remission re-check. Mammogram & Oncologist appointment at the University of Michigan. Long trip. Lots of sitting. Restaurant meals. I hate that I will end October after a massive travel day! However, I am not weighing in on Oct. 31st immediately following because of expected false fluid retention & bloat. I will pick it back up on the first, giving myself 24 hours to weight adjust.

    Weight Loss In October……………….. – 5.4 pounds

    Day 80 – 11/01 ……188.0…… I lost some of the travel bloat thankfully! Good luck everyone as we finish up this challenge in November!
    Day 81 – 11/02 ……188.0…… It’s a miracle that my weight is the same. I ate more calories & especially carbs that I had planned. Eating my emotions for sure due to serious health issues. But I remain UNSTOPPABLE at this point. Today will be a good day, the kind that I deserve!
    Day 82 – 11/03 ……185.6…… I actually did not eat enough yesterday, thus this drop. May float back up a bit but I know I am making progress. Healthier eating planned today with a few more calories & carbs than yesterday allowed.
    Day 83 – 11/04 ……186.0…… Too much indulgence in sodium filled food. Cals & carbs were not too bad, just bad choices in what I poked in my face.
    Day 84 – 11/05 ……186.0…… Holding steady but clearly not going to make my goal. I’m just happy at this point for ANY progress.
    Day 85 – 11/06 ……186.0…… Lots of water shedding last night, but no change on the scale. I had a great day. Stuck to food plan, ate very healthy choices and I exercised to my normal capacity. Patience is definitely part of this process!
    Day 86 – 11/07 ……186.0…… Stuck at this weight. I have a busy schedule today & will not be doing some of my normal walking. Maybe this will shake it up, one way or another!
    Day 87 – 11/08 ……186.8…… Nachos and fun sized candy combined with that lack of exercise I knew was coming. Not happy today but will be diligent.
    Day 88 – 11/09 ……186.8…… A good day yesterday but no movement on the scale. I walked off an extra 617 calories and kept my calories & carbs within reason. Still bloated from nachos I ate on day 86. Today I will focus on water.
    Day 89 – 11/10 ……186.6…… I followed plan & got in lots of extra calorie burning movement yesterday. I had hoped for a bigger drop on the scale, but trusting the process……. Unfortunately, tomorrow is travel and the following day (Day 91) will likely see an increase on the scale. It’s a very important day for me tomorrow medically. Please pray for me!
    Day 90 – 11/11 ……185.8…… Traveling for CT Scan. There will be Pizza involved in the travels.
    Day 91 – 11/12 ……188.6…… After travel weigh-in. Now, the work begins again.
    Day 92 – 11/13 ……188.6…… Some emotional eating last night, but great stats on the calorie burn & activity so it leveled it. News from the University is actually no news yet. Their call to me revealed that they are sending the CT’s for additional diagnostics with other specialists to see if a biopsy is in order. More waiting….
    Day 93 – 11/14 ……188.8…… I’ve got to pull it together.
    Day 94 – 11/15 ……188.0…… I don’t know that I deserve this after last night’s LNS, but I will take it and be humbled and grateful.
    Day 95 – 11/16 ……187.8…… Bad LNS again last night. I guess it was a mini binge. I think the scale only went down because of a much needed TMI. I’m going to try better today to eat less and much healthier! I’ve put Salmon on the menu for tonight.
    Day 96 – 11/17 ……187.0…… Well, clearly I am not going to lose 9.2 lbs in four days to make my goal, but I am still thrilled that I finally began to make progress again. I had not had any progress since November 2018 (only gains & yo-yo’s) so I call this success, not just progress. I will continue to work hard. 4 more days are 4 more chances to get lighter, toner & healthier!
    Day 97 – 11/18 ……185.8…… That’s more like it! I don’t know that I deserved the whoosh but I’ll take it!
    Day 98 – 11/19 ……185.8…… Holding steady but I was hoping for another drop as we near the end of this round. However, I can’t expect a whoosh two days in a row, right? Anyhow, very good day yesterday with diet & exercise. I even fit in some prep cooking. Dinner guests tonight who are NOT DIETING so I will try to be mindful!

    Day 10: 142.1
    Day 11: 142.1 very low calorie again yesterday. Today I have laundry, house cleaning, and shopping to get done before the Cowboys game tonight. So hopefully I can stay on track and be good today.
    Day 12: 143.1 did well yesterday so I think this is just sodium or the couple of beers I had last night.

    Day 14: 144.1

    Day 20: NW - Texas for FIL services
    Day 21: 148.7 back and way up. That's what 4 days of drinking and eating out does to me. Back at it!
    Day 22: 146.9 slowly coming back down.
    Day 23: 145.1
    Day 24: 145.1 still just hanging out
    Day 25: 143.8
    Day 26: 144.5 seems I’ve evened out and I’m ok with this weight. I think I’m going to end my diet break a week early and start back on Monday.
    Day 27: 147.0 Monday jump
    Day 28: 146.5
    Day 29: 143.8 Last day of my diet break. I am back in 100% tomorrow. I have done really well maintaining though.
    Day 30: 145.6 Maintenance and diet break are done. I am getting under 140!
    Day 31: 143.8 did really well yesterday and on track for today. Hopefully I see another drop tomorrow.
    Day 32: 143.2 hopefully I can be good today and stay on track.
    Day 33: 144.8 I thought I did a little better than this yesterday, but maybe it’s sodium or something.
    Day 34: 146.3 TOM will be here today and I snacked a lot on chips and dip yesterday. Darn-it!
    Day 35: 146.3 Day 2 will go down by Thursday or Friday
    Day 36: 145.7 Still really high, but staying on track with food and water.
    Day 37: 143.7 finally a good whoosh! Now to see some downward movement on the scale
    Day 38: 142.8 and another good whoosh! I am officially back to where I was a month ago, lol. Now to be strong through the weekend
    Day 39: 143.7 sodium induced. We went out last night for dinner and had Chinese.
    Day 40: 143.7 holding steady
    Day 41: 145.4 This is probably from the 2 restaurant meals yesterday.
    Day 42: 144.3 and the roller coaster continues
    Day 43: 140.9 only ate about 600 calories yesterday. I am sure it will bounce back up tomorrow. Hopefully not to much though
    Day 44: 142.0 up a bit, but hopefully will see a drop tomorrow again.
    Day 45: 142.0 was hoping to drop a little, but still happy with this today. Progress is progress I guess
    Day 46: 140.9 had another very low calorie day yesterday. Hopefully I can stay on track today and finish the month strong
    Day 47: 140.9 super happy! But will be up tomorrow. Have breakfast with the family this am and watching football all day with the hubby. Alcohol and pre-gaming for the Cowboys game today.
    Day 48: 145.9 tons of alcohol and snack food. Hopefully will be back down in a day or 2

    October 1st
    Day 49: 146.5 WTH????? No clue!
    Day 50: 143.9 it's coming back down.
    Day 51: 143.2 would have been lower but I ate a piece of pizza and 4 wings last night for dinner.
    Day 52: 142.0 and we are back to this number. These low 140's are going to be the death of me.
    Day 53: 141.5 almost back to my lowest last week
    Day 54: 141.5 still here but will probably see a bounce up tomorrow.
    Day 55: 143.2 not terrible for a Monday. Definitely my lowest Monday by far.
    Day 56: 144.9 not bad for a 3 day weekend. Went to a movie (Joker-was super weird) and snacked more than actually eating a meal all day. Back on track today.
    Day 57: 143.6
    Day 58: 142.9 kind of annoyed at my lack of progress. I only have 4 pounds to go to get to my maintenance and I am thinking it may be impossible to get into 130's. I am determined to stick to this and at least see 139 by the end of this month. UuugghhhH!!!
    Day 59: 141.4 a little lower than my lowest last week. Keep moving along.
    Day 60: 142.3 food was good, but I had a couple of beers with dinner. Why do I like beer so much?
    Day 61: 143.6 This is the rest of Friday night
    Day 62: 142.8 Nice way to start the week.
    Day 63: 142.3
    Day 64: 140.9 and we are back down to the lowest I have seen on the scale.
    Day 65: 140.9
    Day 66: 141.5 uuugghhh
    Day 67: 141.5
    Day 68: 143.9
    Day 69: 144.6 My Monday weigh ins are so bad!
    Day 70: 144.6 who knows why. I exercised for the first time in years yesterday and am really sore. Maybe that's why
    Day 71: 143.9
    Day 72: 144.6 dinner out for son's 20th bday last night and still slightly sore
    Day 73: 143.9
    Day 74: 142.3 no alcohol on a Friday night!
    Day 75: 139.7 did an almost 24 hour fast yesterday so will see a bounce up tomorrow, but liked seeing this the am.
    Day 76: 142.3 well that sucks
    Day 77: 142.3 same and annoyed
    Day 78: 140.7 Omg! I may have finally seen a new low, lol, and I didn't fast. It's only 2/10 of a pound lower, but I am taking it.
    Day 79: 140.7 same as yesterday. Total loss for October 2/10 of a pound!

    November 1st
    Day 80: 141.5 Chinese cooked at home though
    Day 81: 139.7 yes and this is a real weight, but now it’s the darn weekend!
    Day 82: 140.7 food was way under, but no water and a couple of beers
    Day 83: 141.5 steak for dinner last night and a couple of beers. Food was still under for the day
    Day 84: 139.7 and the Cowboys won last night!
    Day 85: 140.7 I am assuming this is the rest of my Monday night.
    Day 86: 140.7 husband's bday today. So dinner at pizza place tonight
    Day 87: 143.4 and there it is. Pizza and beer.
    Day 88: 140.7
    Day 89: 144.3 Bloody Mary with Mexican food for lunch and this is what I get. My body hates salt!
    Day 90: 143.4 no water yesterday and mostly cleaned and did laundry yesterday. Back on track today
    Day 91: 141.3 going back down after my nice sodium bomb
    Day 92: 139.7 and back down to my lowest
    Day 93: 139.7 hopefully not up tomorrow
    Day 94: 140.6
    Day 95: 140.6 five days left and haven’t even seen my goal weight once, lol
    Day 96: 141.3
    Day 97: 141.3

    Day 89 - 11/10: 131.5 A bit excessive on the snacking, plus burger fries and a beer--Actually, I didn't have a beer. I had to drink my husbands. I got carded, didn't have my wallet, and apparently, 54 was not old enough to pass! :) :0 :)

    Day 100 11/21:

    Well, there's the drop. Did take a rest day yesterday and totally needed it. All of my blood work came back normal, including my creatinine which had been high (hence my concern about larger weight fluctuations). No nutritional deficiencies, as expected. I take good care to prevent them - it can be incredibly easy to become seriously deficient. In hindsight, I probably was too hard on my new doc. She was really triggering (attacking diet and body don't give you nice patients), but I could have handled it far better than I did. She was concerned about my health, which is a good thing.

    Obviously not going to reach my weight goal, but not really concerned. I know my body has dealt with a lot starting with a new workout plan, so I have to be patient.

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ August 14, 2019 through November 21, 2019
    My Name is Donna, Age 59. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA


    145320379.png


    “What you eat in private will show up in public.” ~Unknown


    Day 01 – 08/14 ……197.8……
    Day 02 – 08/15 ……195.4……Whoosh! A good day yesterday. Stayed on point all around.
    Day 03 – 08/16 ……196.0…… Oops. Pizza.
    Day 04 – 08/17 ……196.2…… Normal fluctuation. A conservative dinner out yesterday in which I showed much restraint.
    Day 05 – 08/18 ……196.0…… A bit better.
    Day 06 – 08/19 ……196.0…… Backyard BBQ always stalls me.
    Day 07 – 08/20 ……195.4…… A nice well-earned overnight drop.
    Day 08 – 08/21 ……196.7…… So happy I found the part 2 challenge. It is exciting to do the whole thing this time. I had an increase due to DQ yesterday. My own fault & today I’ve paid for it. Good luck everyone!
    Day 09 – 08/22 ……196.2…… Better. I fought the cravings last night & won.
    Day 10 – 08/23 ……194.4…… WooHoo! Worked hard for this yesterday eating just 1100 calories and burning over 3200. “ Let’s just keep it up Donna,” she says to self!
    Day 11 – 08/24 ……196.6…… Fish fry dinner out last night. Stayed within calories but over on carbs. No worries. Today is remedy day. Flushing sodium!
    Day 12 – 08/25 ……196.4 ……s..l..o..w.. progress. But it’s a journey, right?
    Day 13 – 08/26 ……193.0…… Travel Day. I hope I choose well & I don’t come home & blow the whole day bingeing just because I had a nice restaurant lunch while out of town. That’s the goal today! Scale will be up a bit tomorrow, but hopefully it will be just water retention that can be erased within 48 hours.
    Day 14 – 08/27 …197.8…… After Travel Weigh-in. Nearly 5 pounds gained overnight! Much of it has to be water from the restaurant food & the late night binge I spiraled into. I’ll be working hard on flushing today & making good choices.
    Day 15 – 08/28 ……195.6…… Losing some of that binge & travel weight from Monday. More to go…..
    Day 16 – 08/29 ……195.4…… BBQ last night stalled me a bit, but still moving slightly down on the scale.
    Day 17 – 08/30 ……193.6…… Extra low calories & carbs yesterday on purpose to shake things up! Yes to the whoosh. Today, back to my normal healthy plan & hopefully another difference (even if small) on the scale. Progress is what counts!
    Day 18 – 08/31 ……192.6…… Thrilled with this but traveling today so I must keep myself in control!

    Weight Loss in Auguast (18 days)……………….. 5.2 lbs

    Day 19 – 09/01……192.6…… Staying level with the scale, even over a holiday weekend so far. Going to try to keep it strong!
    Day 20 – 09/02 ……194.2…… I ate 885 Calories last night and gained 1.6 pounds. Wow!
    Day 21 – 09/03 ……194.8…… I obviously enjoyed my Labor Day Holiday. However, body is acting weird on scale (see yesterday) so its time to shake things up!
    Day 22 – 09/04 ……194.8…… Still shaking!
    Day 23 – 09/05 ……194.6……slightly better thanks to bathroom duty TMI. But I really need to work harder toward the 180’s. Going on a picnic later but will be mindful & will hike along river while there to offset the meal. I want the 180’s this month. I mean, I REALLY REALLY want it!
    Day 24 – 09/06 ……193.0……I really shook it up yesterday. Hiked instead of just walked and added a few carbs by having a lovely riverside picnic near the trail. Also danced for almost 20 minutes last night. Sample song, “To Love Somebody” by the Bee Gees. It wasn’t fast, but it got a great vibe & groove on and put me back in the mood to stay on my journey. Music working its magic! I hope you'll put that little 3 minute song on and be inspired today. Join me!
    Day 25 – 09/07 ……193.4……A slight gain because of a very severe diabetic sugar drop late last night that forced me to eat carbs specifically laid out by my doctor’s plan for my Type 2 Diabetes. Otherwise, I had a great on point day with calories & extra exercise. Moving on.
    Day 26 – 09/08 ……193.4…… Happy with this after the fresh zucchini bread from my neighbor last night!
    Day 27 – 09/09 ……193.6…… Finished off the zucchini bread last night so I just barely treaded water. Back to business today!
    Day 28 – 09/10 ……193.6…… Same old song & Dance. Come on September, throw me a bone!
    Day 29 – 09/11 ……193.6…… I hope for a whoosh tomorrow before the travels!
    Day 30 – 09/12 ……195.4…… Unexpected travel yesterday causing gain today. Now Travel & restaurant again today for an occasion. Another gain expected tomorrow due to probable water retention & lack of exercise/movement. Uggg.
    Day 31 – 09/13 ……197.8…… After Travel weigh-in. Likely a lot of water retention. I’ll be working on this the next few days.
    Day 32 – 09/14 ……197.4…… Still retaining traveling water from sodium filled meals & lack of movement!
    Day 33 – 09/15 ……193.0…… Whoosh! There goes that water retention from the Chinese food. Now, to stay on track until the next travel day.
    Day 34 – 09/16 ……191.0…… I just can’t tell you how thrilled I am. I really worked hard for this yesterday!
    Day 35 – 09/17 ……190.6…… I really needed these drops these past few days. Upcoming travel again which always reeks havoc but it’s usually a temporary set-back.
    Day 36 – 09/18 ……191.8…… Out of town travel with lots of car sitting & restaurant is in the day’s plan this afternoon. I ate too much (a double helping) of my “diet” pre-prepped food last night. It showed up on the scale this morning. And now travel with restaurant today. This required trip came at a bad time.
    Day 37 – 09/19 ……195.0…… After travel weigh-in. Very disappointed. I practiced more restraint than normal at the restaurant. Food choices not the greatest, but quantity of food eaten much smaller than days gone by. Water retention sucks!
    Day 38 – 09/20 ……193.2…… Dropping some of the water weight. More to go!
    Day 39 – 09/21 ……193.0…… Every little bit counts! TMI would really help!
    Day 40 – 09/22 ……193.0…… Holding steady even after a T2D glucose drop which forced me to eat a few more carbs than I’d planned. I stayed calm and did not quickly overeat (which is the instinct) and used the smarties candy method my doctor advised. It worked. I stayed on track with my diet plan without too much damage to my macros.
    Day 41 – 09/23 ……193.0…… No change again.
    Day 42 – 09/24 ……192.2…… That’s more like it!
    Day 43 – 09/25 ……192.2…… Travel Day #1. This means less movement, restaurant food and less water, but I’ll really try to improve on all 3 today keeping my goals in mind as much as possible.
    Day 44 – 09/26 ……196.6…… Travel Day #2 and after travel weigh-in. I hate the water retention after a restaurant meal! I promise I didn’t eat the 15,000 calories that are required for a true 4 ½ pound gain! Lack of movement in car doesn’t help either. I was up late just working to get in my 10,000 plus steps!
    Day 45 – 09/27 ……198.0 …… After two days of travel. I’m very disappointed in myself. Today I am home, I have frozen pre-prepped meals & I will be on track. Weather is bad so I’m not sure about my activity yet, but food will be on point!
    Day 46 – 09/28 ……192.6…… Huge fluctuation up then back down due to water retention. Now its time to get back to work on the real fat!
    Day 47 – 09/29 ……192.2…… Pleased with this today. Come on 180s!
    Day 48 – 09/30 ……192.0……

    Weight Loss in September……………….. -0.6 lbs.

    Day 49 – 10/01 ……194.2…… This is what traveling looks like on me. Not a good way to start October!
    Day 50 – 10/02 ……191.4…… I tackled the bloat & won the game! Now, back down to real fat loss!
    Day 51 – 10/03 ……191.6…… A normal fluctuation. Ate on plan. Exercised as planned with a 3 mile walk. Under calorie. Good Carb Count. Calories burned 3093. Over 18,000 steps & nearly 8 miles walked yesterday. Progressing well.
    Day 52 – 10/04 ……191.4…… A good day overall. Dinner at neighbors forced me to make good judgments (home is safer) but I did pretty well.
    Day 53 – 10/05 ……189.6…… I have not been in the 180’s in a very long time folks! Beyond thrilled & truly worked hard for it yesterday. It payed off.
    Day 54 – 10/06 ……188.8…… My first short-term goal was to be 187.X by Halloween. So far I’m crushing it! So proud of myself. Now, just to avoid self-sabotage and keep up the good fight!
    Day 55 – 10/07 ……187.2…… Travel Day. I hope I don’t ruin all my progress. Thanks realgirl177 for the shout-out. I’ll take all the encouragement I can get!
    Day 56 – 10/08 ……188.2…… After-Travel weigh-in. Chinese Food. Need I say more?
    Day 57 – 10/09 ……189.2…… Very long Travel Day. Perfect diet & exercise yesterday. Not sure why the bump up but it too shall pass…..
    Day 58 – 10/10 ……191.8…… After-Travel weigh-in. Back home in my “safe zone” & able to fit in more fitness today too! 4.6 lbs up from Monday morning before my first trip this week. Hopefully lots of water retention and not all fat!
    Day 59 – 10/11 ……189.8…… Coming back down after the travel. Back home where my house isn’t booby-trapped! LOL
    Day 60 – 10/12 ……189.8……
    Day 61 – 10/13 ……190.2……
    Day 62 – 10/14 ……190.0…… Working hard.
    Day 63 – 10/15 ……189.9…… A beautiful hike yesterday at the Bayou following the river. Gorgeous fall colors & a crisp but sunny day here in Northern Michigan. Rain expected today.
    Day 64 – 10/16 ……190.1…… A perfect day then…..A late night sweet binge. I hope this number reflects the only damage, but I will have to watch the scale for a few days to see the total picture. So disappointed!
    Day 65 – 10/17 ……189.0…… Okay. That’s better. The sweet binge apparently does not retain the water (weight) like a savory binge or sodium-high restaurant meal. Whew! Close call & working it back down now!
    Day 66 – 10/18 ……188.2…… It’s going great. Fish fry tonight at the local restaurant with friends. Sodium packed! I will try hard to be mindful but I’m still working on control in restaurants. I’ll get there eventually.
    Day 67 – 10/19 ……188.0…… Went out to dinner last night locally. I tried to make good choices and control quantity. A small drop today so it really paid off to be extra mindful, which is something have a hard time doing in restaurants. Proud of myself this morning!
    Day 68 – 10/20 ……189.0…… Drats. I didn’t realize at first that I’d gained an entire pound overnight! Working on this today!
    Day 69 – 10/21 ……189.2…… Must be a normal fluctuation. I walked almost 11 miles yesterday, only ate 900 calories and burned over 3200. Fluid.
    Day 70 – 10/22 ……192.8…… Emergency travel yesterday for a family problem. Wow, a few extra carbs & it goes up POUNDS! I’ll be working on this hard today.
    Day 71 – 10/23 ……188.2…… Very low carb & cals yesterday to eliminate bloat. Extra exercise/work time to burn, burn, burn. Back to basics today. I hope to continue to make progress in a healthy way.
    Day 72 – 10/24 ……188.4…… A normal fluctuation of muscle fluid. Extremely sore today from the past few days of yard work. Yesterday I walked over 25,000 steps, burned over 3100 calories. Walked over 10 miles. At almost age 60, my body is screaming “STOP”, but snow is in the near prediction and there’s still more to do before its arrival.
    Day 73 – 10/25 ……187.2…… Finally the meal planning & extra exercise showed up on the scale. The work days are hard but the paydays are fantastic!
    Day 74 – 10/26 ……186.6…… Avoided a binge last night. Whew, it was so close! I am proud of the strength I showed in powering through it. It was UNBELIEVABLEY tough!
    Day 75 – 10/27 ……187.8…… A perfect day of diet & exercise. Then along came the “charity” goodies I bought for “my son” which will help my grandson's graduating class in a few years. I ate half and it rewarded me with a 1.2 pound gain! I’ll be drinking more water today & keeping calories and carbs in check. Next time I will donate the dollars & not take the goodies!
    Day 76 – 10/28 ……187.8…… No change. Good night last night. Resisted more than the average bear!
    Day 77 – 10/29 ……188.8…… A bit over on carbs & calories yesterday. Today will be a good day. Travel tomorrow.
    Day 78 – 10/30 ……188.8…… Travel Day for Breast Cancer Remission re-check. Mammogram & Oncologist appointment at the University of Michigan. Long trip. Lots of sitting. Restaurant meals. I hate that I will end October after a massive travel day! However, I am not weighing in on Oct. 31st immediately following because of expected false fluid retention & bloat. I will pick it back up on the first, giving myself 24 hours to weight adjust.

    Weight Loss In October……………….. – 5.4 pounds

    Day 80 – 11/01 ……188.0…… I lost some of the travel bloat thankfully! Good luck everyone as we finish up this challenge in November!
    Day 81 – 11/02 ……188.0…… It’s a miracle that my weight is the same. I ate more calories & especially carbs that I had planned. Eating my emotions for sure due to serious health issues. But I remain UNSTOPPABLE at this point. Today will be a good day, the kind that I deserve!
    Day 82 – 11/03 ……185.6…… I actually did not eat enough yesterday, thus this drop. May float back up a bit but I know I am making progress. Healthier eating planned today with a few more calories & carbs than yesterday allowed.
    Day 83 – 11/04 ……186.0…… Too much indulgence in sodium filled food. Cals & carbs were not too bad, just bad choices in what I poked in my face.
    Day 84 – 11/05 ……186.0…… Holding steady but clearly not going to make my goal. I’m just happy at this point for ANY progress.
    Day 85 – 11/06 ……186.0…… Lots of water shedding last night, but no change on the scale. I had a great day. Stuck to food plan, ate very healthy choices and I exercised to my normal capacity. Patience is definitely part of this process!
    Day 86 – 11/07 ……186.0…… Stuck at this weight. I have a busy schedule today & will not be doing some of my normal walking. Maybe this will shake it up, one way or another!
    Day 87 – 11/08 ……186.8…… Nachos and fun sized candy combined with that lack of exercise I knew was coming. Not happy today but will be diligent.
    Day 88 – 11/09 ……186.8…… A good day yesterday but no movement on the scale. I walked off an extra 617 calories and kept my calories & carbs within reason. Still bloated from nachos I ate on day 86. Today I will focus on water.
    Day 89 – 11/10 ……186.6…… I followed plan & got in lots of extra calorie burning movement yesterday. I had hoped for a bigger drop on the scale, but trusting the process……. Unfortunately, tomorrow is travel and the following day (Day 91) will likely see an increase on the scale. It’s a very important day for me tomorrow medically. Please pray for me!
    Day 90 – 11/11 ……185.8…… Traveling for CT Scan. There will be Pizza involved in the travels.
    Day 91 – 11/12 ……188.6…… After travel weigh-in. Now, the work begins again.
    Day 92 – 11/13 ……188.6…… Some emotional eating last night, but great stats on the calorie burn & activity so it leveled it. News from the University is actually no news yet. Their call to me revealed that they are sending the CT’s for additional diagnostics with other specialists to see if a biopsy is in order. More waiting….
    Day 93 – 11/14 ……188.8…… I’ve got to pull it together.
    Day 94 – 11/15 ……188.0…… I don’t know that I deserve this after last night’s LNS, but I will take it and be humbled and grateful.
    Day 95 – 11/16 ……187.8…… Bad LNS again last night. I guess it was a mini binge. I think the scale only went down because of a much needed TMI. I’m going to try better today to eat less and much healthier! I’ve put Salmon on the menu for tonight.
    Day 96 – 11/17 ……187.0…… Well, clearly I am not going to lose 9.2 lbs in four days to make my goal, but I am still thrilled that I finally began to make progress again. I had not had any progress since November 2018 (only gains & yo-yo’s) so I call this success, not just progress. I will continue to work hard. 4 more days are 4 more chances to get lighter, toner & healthier!
    Day 97 – 11/18 ……185.8…… That’s more like it! I don’t know that I deserved the whoosh but I’ll take it!
    Day 98 – 11/19 ……185.8…… Holding steady but I was hoping for another drop as we near the end of this round. However, I can’t expect a whoosh two days in a row, right? Anyhow, very good day yesterday with diet & exercise. I even fit in some prep cooking. Dinner guests tonight who are NOT DIETING so I will try to be mindful!
    Day 99 – 11/20 ……184.6…… Ate candy corn so I had to eat a much lighter dinner with my dinner guests but it payed off. Carbs were too high but calories remained low. A nice drop on the scale afterall. Okay folks, lets all be good today & finish off with the best final weigh-in possible!

    Day 10: 142.1
    Day 11: 142.1 very low calorie again yesterday. Today I have laundry, house cleaning, and shopping to get done before the Cowboys game tonight. So hopefully I can stay on track and be good today.
    Day 12: 143.1 did well yesterday so I think this is just sodium or the couple of beers I had last night.

    Day 14: 144.1

    Day 20: NW - Texas for FIL services
    Day 21: 148.7 back and way up. That's what 4 days of drinking and eating out does to me. Back at it!
    Day 22: 146.9 slowly coming back down.
    Day 23: 145.1
    Day 24: 145.1 still just hanging out
    Day 25: 143.8
    Day 26: 144.5 seems I’ve evened out and I’m ok with this weight. I think I’m going to end my diet break a week early and start back on Monday.
    Day 27: 147.0 Monday jump
    Day 28: 146.5
    Day 29: 143.8 Last day of my diet break. I am back in 100% tomorrow. I have done really well maintaining though.
    Day 30: 145.6 Maintenance and diet break are done. I am getting under 140!
    Day 31: 143.8 did really well yesterday and on track for today. Hopefully I see another drop tomorrow.
    Day 32: 143.2 hopefully I can be good today and stay on track.
    Day 33: 144.8 I thought I did a little better than this yesterday, but maybe it’s sodium or something.
    Day 34: 146.3 TOM will be here today and I snacked a lot on chips and dip yesterday. Darn-it!
    Day 35: 146.3 Day 2 will go down by Thursday or Friday
    Day 36: 145.7 Still really high, but staying on track with food and water.
    Day 37: 143.7 finally a good whoosh! Now to see some downward movement on the scale
    Day 38: 142.8 and another good whoosh! I am officially back to where I was a month ago, lol. Now to be strong through the weekend
    Day 39: 143.7 sodium induced. We went out last night for dinner and had Chinese.
    Day 40: 143.7 holding steady
    Day 41: 145.4 This is probably from the 2 restaurant meals yesterday.
    Day 42: 144.3 and the roller coaster continues
    Day 43: 140.9 only ate about 600 calories yesterday. I am sure it will bounce back up tomorrow. Hopefully not to much though
    Day 44: 142.0 up a bit, but hopefully will see a drop tomorrow again.
    Day 45: 142.0 was hoping to drop a little, but still happy with this today. Progress is progress I guess
    Day 46: 140.9 had another very low calorie day yesterday. Hopefully I can stay on track today and finish the month strong
    Day 47: 140.9 super happy! But will be up tomorrow. Have breakfast with the family this am and watching football all day with the hubby. Alcohol and pre-gaming for the Cowboys game today.
    Day 48: 145.9 tons of alcohol and snack food. Hopefully will be back down in a day or 2

    October 1st
    Day 49: 146.5 WTH????? No clue!
    Day 50: 143.9 it's coming back down.
    Day 51: 143.2 would have been lower but I ate a piece of pizza and 4 wings last night for dinner.
    Day 52: 142.0 and we are back to this number. These low 140's are going to be the death of me.
    Day 53: 141.5 almost back to my lowest last week
    Day 54: 141.5 still here but will probably see a bounce up tomorrow.
    Day 55: 143.2 not terrible for a Monday. Definitely my lowest Monday by far.
    Day 56: 144.9 not bad for a 3 day weekend. Went to a movie (Joker-was super weird) and snacked more than actually eating a meal all day. Back on track today.
    Day 57: 143.6
    Day 58: 142.9 kind of annoyed at my lack of progress. I only have 4 pounds to go to get to my maintenance and I am thinking it may be impossible to get into 130's. I am determined to stick to this and at least see 139 by the end of this month. UuugghhhH!!!
    Day 59: 141.4 a little lower than my lowest last week. Keep moving along.
    Day 60: 142.3 food was good, but I had a couple of beers with dinner. Why do I like beer so much?
    Day 61: 143.6 This is the rest of Friday night
    Day 62: 142.8 Nice way to start the week.
    Day 63: 142.3
    Day 64: 140.9 and we are back down to the lowest I have seen on the scale.
    Day 65: 140.9
    Day 66: 141.5 uuugghhh
    Day 67: 141.5
    Day 68: 143.9
    Day 69: 144.6 My Monday weigh ins are so bad!
    Day 70: 144.6 who knows why. I exercised for the first time in years yesterday and am really sore. Maybe that's why
    Day 71: 143.9
    Day 72: 144.6 dinner out for son's 20th bday last night and still slightly sore
    Day 73: 143.9
    Day 74: 142.3 no alcohol on a Friday night!
    Day 75: 139.7 did an almost 24 hour fast yesterday so will see a bounce up tomorrow, but liked seeing this the am.
    Day 76: 142.3 well that sucks
    Day 77: 142.3 same and annoyed
    Day 78: 140.7 Omg! I may have finally seen a new low, lol, and I didn't fast. It's only 2/10 of a pound lower, but I am taking it.
    Day 79: 140.7 same as yesterday. Total loss for October 2/10 of a pound!

    November 1st
    Day 80: 141.5 Chinese cooked at home though
    Day 81: 139.7 yes and this is a real weight, but now it’s the darn weekend!
    Day 82: 140.7 food was way under, but no water and a couple of beers
    Day 83: 141.5 steak for dinner last night and a couple of beers. Food was still under for the day
    Day 84: 139.7 and the Cowboys won last night!
    Day 85: 140.7 I am assuming this is the rest of my Monday night.
    Day 86: 140.7 husband's bday today. So dinner at pizza place tonight
    Day 87: 143.4 and there it is. Pizza and beer.
    Day 88: 140.7
    Day 89: 144.3 Bloody Mary with Mexican food for lunch and this is what I get. My body hates salt!
    Day 90: 143.4 no water yesterday and mostly cleaned and did laundry yesterday. Back on track today
    Day 91: 141.3 going back down after my nice sodium bomb
    Day 92: 139.7 and back down to my lowest
    Day 93: 139.7 hopefully not up tomorrow
    Day 94: 140.6
    Day 95: 140.6 five days left and haven’t even seen my goal weight once, lol
    Day 96: 141.3
    Day 97: 141.3
    Day 98: 142.0 up a little from my 3 day weekend. Movie popcorn yesterday and a nice lunch out with some enchiladas. 2 more days

    Day 01 – 08/14 ……197.8……
    Day 02 – 08/15 ……195.4……Whoosh! A good day yesterday. Stayed on point all around.
    Day 03 – 08/16 ……196.0…… Oops. Pizza.
    Day 04 – 08/17 ……196.2…… Normal fluctuation. A conservative dinner out yesterday in which I showed much restraint.
    Day 05 – 08/18 ……196.0…… A bit better.
    Day 06 – 08/19 ……196.0…… Backyard BBQ always stalls me.
    Day 07 – 08/20 ……195.4…… A nice well-earned overnight drop.
    Day 08 – 08/21 ……196.7…… So happy I found the part 2 challenge. It is exciting to do the whole thing this time. I had an increase due to DQ yesterday. My own fault & today I’ve paid for it. Good luck everyone!
    Day 09 – 08/22 ……196.2…… Better. I fought the cravings last night & won.
    Day 10 – 08/23 ……194.4…… WooHoo! Worked hard for this yesterday eating just 1100 calories and burning over 3200. “ Let’s just keep it up Donna,” she says to self!
    Day 11 – 08/24 ……196.6…… Fish fry dinner out last night. Stayed within calories but over on carbs. No worries. Today is remedy day. Flushing sodium!
    Day 12 – 08/25 ……196.4 ……s..l..o..w.. progress. But it’s a journey, right?
    Day 13 – 08/26 ……193.0…… Travel Day. I hope I choose well & I don’t come home & blow the whole day bingeing just because I had a nice restaurant lunch while out of town. That’s the goal today! Scale will be up a bit tomorrow, but hopefully it will be just water retention that can be erased within 48 hours.
    Day 14 – 08/27 …197.8…… After Travel Weigh-in. Nearly 5 pounds gained overnight! Much of it has to be water from the restaurant food & the late night binge I spiraled into. I’ll be working hard on flushing today & making good choices.
    Day 15 – 08/28 ……195.6…… Losing some of that binge & travel weight from Monday. More to go…..
    Day 16 – 08/29 ……195.4…… BBQ last night stalled me a bit, but still moving slightly down on the scale.
    Day 17 – 08/30 ……193.6…… Extra low calories & carbs yesterday on purpose to shake things up! Yes to the whoosh. Today, back to my normal healthy plan & hopefully another difference (even if small) on the scale. Progress is what counts!
    Day 18 – 08/31 ……192.6…… Thrilled with this but traveling today so I must keep myself in control!

    Weight Loss in Auguast (18 days)……………….. 5.2 lbs

    Day 19 – 09/01……192.6…… Staying level with the scale, even over a holiday weekend so far. Going to try to keep it strong!
    Day 20 – 09/02 ……194.2…… I ate 885 Calories last night and gained 1.6 pounds. Wow!
    Day 21 – 09/03 ……194.8…… I obviously enjoyed my Labor Day Holiday. However, body is acting weird on scale (see yesterday) so its time to shake things up!
    Day 22 – 09/04 ……194.8…… Still shaking!
    Day 23 – 09/05 ……194.6……slightly better thanks to bathroom duty TMI. But I really need to work harder toward the 180’s. Going on a picnic later but will be mindful & will hike along river while there to offset the meal. I want the 180’s this month. I mean, I REALLY REALLY want it!
    Day 24 – 09/06 ……193.0……I really shook it up yesterday. Hiked instead of just walked and added a few carbs by having a lovely riverside picnic near the trail. Also danced for almost 20 minutes last night. Sample song, “To Love Somebody” by the Bee Gees. It wasn’t fast, but it got a great vibe & groove on and put me back in the mood to stay on my journey. Music working its magic! I hope you'll put that little 3 minute song on and be inspired today. Join me!
    Day 25 – 09/07 ……193.4……A slight gain because of a very severe diabetic sugar drop late last night that forced me to eat carbs specifically laid out by my doctor’s plan for my Type 2 Diabetes. Otherwise, I had a great on point day with calories & extra exercise. Moving on.
    Day 26 – 09/08 ……193.4…… Happy with this after the fresh zucchini bread from my neighbor last night!
    Day 27 – 09/09 ……193.6…… Finished off the zucchini bread last night so I just barely treaded water. Back to business today!
    Day 28 – 09/10 ……193.6…… Same old song & Dance. Come on September, throw me a bone!
    Day 29 – 09/11 ……193.6…… I hope for a whoosh tomorrow before the travels!
    Day 30 – 09/12 ……195.4…… Unexpected travel yesterday causing gain today. Now Travel & restaurant again today for an occasion. Another gain expected tomorrow due to probable water retention & lack of exercise/movement. Uggg.
    Day 31 – 09/13 ……197.8…… After Travel weigh-in. Likely a lot of water retention. I’ll be working on this the next few days.
    Day 32 – 09/14 ……197.4…… Still retaining traveling water from sodium filled meals & lack of movement!
    Day 33 – 09/15 ……193.0…… Whoosh! There goes that water retention from the Chinese food. Now, to stay on track until the next travel day.
    Day 34 – 09/16 ……191.0…… I just can’t tell you how thrilled I am. I really worked hard for this yesterday!
    Day 35 – 09/17 ……190.6…… I really needed these drops these past few days. Upcoming travel again which always reeks havoc but it’s usually a temporary set-back.
    Day 36 – 09/18 ……191.8…… Out of town travel with lots of car sitting & restaurant is in the day’s plan this afternoon. I ate too much (a double helping) of my “diet” pre-prepped food last night. It showed up on the scale this morning. And now travel with restaurant today. This required trip came at a bad time.
    Day 37 – 09/19 ……195.0…… After travel weigh-in. Very disappointed. I practiced more restraint than normal at the restaurant. Food choices not the greatest, but quantity of food eaten much smaller than days gone by. Water retention sucks!
    Day 38 – 09/20 ……193.2…… Dropping some of the water weight. More to go!
    Day 39 – 09/21 ……193.0…… Every little bit counts! TMI would really help!
    Day 40 – 09/22 ……193.0…… Holding steady even after a T2D glucose drop which forced me to eat a few more carbs than I’d planned. I stayed calm and did not quickly overeat (which is the instinct) and used the smarties candy method my doctor advised. It worked. I stayed on track with my diet plan without too much damage to my macros.
    Day 41 – 09/23 ……193.0…… No change again.
    Day 42 – 09/24 ……192.2…… That’s more like it!
    Day 43 – 09/25 ……192.2…… Travel Day #1. This means less movement, restaurant food and less water, but I’ll really try to improve on all 3 today keeping my goals in mind as much as possible.
    Day 44 – 09/26 ……196.6…… Travel Day #2 and after travel weigh-in. I hate the water retention after a restaurant meal! I promise I didn’t eat the 15,000 calories that are required for a true 4 ½ pound gain! Lack of movement in car doesn’t help either. I was up late just working to get in my 10,000 plus steps!
    Day 45 – 09/27 ……198.0 …… After two days of travel. I’m very disappointed in myself. Today I am home, I have frozen pre-prepped meals & I will be on track. Weather is bad so I’m not sure about my activity yet, but food will be on point!
    Day 46 – 09/28 ……192.6…… Huge fluctuation up then back down due to water retention. Now its time to get back to work on the real fat!
    Day 47 – 09/29 ……192.2…… Pleased with this today. Come on 180s!
    Day 48 – 09/30 ……192.0……

    Weight Loss in September……………….. -0.6 lbs.

    Day 49 – 10/01 ……194.2…… This is what traveling looks like on me. Not a good way to start October!
    Day 50 – 10/02 ……191.4…… I tackled the bloat & won the game! Now, back down to real fat loss!
    Day 51 – 10/03 ……191.6…… A normal fluctuation. Ate on plan. Exercised as planned with a 3 mile walk. Under calorie. Good Carb Count. Calories burned 3093. Over 18,000 steps & nearly 8 miles walked yesterday. Progressing well.
    Day 52 – 10/04 ……191.4…… A good day overall. Dinner at neighbors forced me to make good judgments (home is safer) but I did pretty well.
    Day 53 – 10/05 ……189.6…… I have not been in the 180’s in a very long time folks! Beyond thrilled & truly worked hard for it yesterday. It payed off.
    Day 54 – 10/06 ……188.8…… My first short-term goal was to be 187.X by Halloween. So far I’m crushing it! So proud of myself. Now, just to avoid self-sabotage and keep up the good fight!
    Day 55 – 10/07 ……187.2…… Travel Day. I hope I don’t ruin all my progress. Thanks realgirl177 for the shout-out. I’ll take all the encouragement I can get!
    Day 56 – 10/08 ……188.2…… After-Travel weigh-in. Chinese Food. Need I say more?
    Day 57 – 10/09 ……189.2…… Very long Travel Day. Perfect diet & exercise yesterday. Not sure why the bump up but it too shall pass…..
    Day 58 – 10/10 ……191.8…… After-Travel weigh-in. Back home in my “safe zone” & able to fit in more fitness today too! 4.6 lbs up from Monday morning before my first trip this week. Hopefully lots of water retention and not all fat!
    Day 59 – 10/11 ……189.8…… Coming back down after the travel. Back home where my house isn’t booby-trapped! LOL
    Day 60 – 10/12 ……189.8……
    Day 61 – 10/13 ……190.2……
    Day 62 – 10/14 ……190.0…… Working hard.
    Day 63 – 10/15 ……189.9…… A beautiful hike yesterday at the Bayou following the river. Gorgeous fall colors & a crisp but sunny day here in Northern Michigan. Rain expected today.
    Day 64 – 10/16 ……190.1…… A perfect day then…..A late night sweet binge. I hope this number reflects the only damage, but I will have to watch the scale for a few days to see the total picture. So disappointed!
    Day 65 – 10/17 ……189.0…… Okay. That’s better. The sweet binge apparently does not retain the water (weight) like a savory binge or sodium-high restaurant meal. Whew! Close call & working it back down now!
    Day 66 – 10/18 ……188.2…… It’s going great. Fish fry tonight at the local restaurant with friends. Sodium packed! I will try hard to be mindful but I’m still working on control in restaurants. I’ll get there eventually.
    Day 67 – 10/19 ……188.0…… Went out to dinner last night locally. I tried to make good choices and control quantity. A small drop today so it really paid off to be extra mindful, which is something have a hard time doing in restaurants. Proud of myself this morning!
    Day 68 – 10/20 ……189.0…… Drats. I didn’t realize at first that I’d gained an entire pound overnight! Working on this today!
    Day 69 – 10/21 ……189.2…… Must be a normal fluctuation. I walked almost 11 miles yesterday, only ate 900 calories and burned over 3200. Fluid.
    Day 70 – 10/22 ……192.8…… Emergency travel yesterday for a family problem. Wow, a few extra carbs & it goes up POUNDS! I’ll be working on this hard today.
    Day 71 – 10/23 ……188.2…… Very low carb & cals yesterday to eliminate bloat. Extra exercise/work time to burn, burn, burn. Back to basics today. I hope to continue to make progress in a healthy way.
    Day 72 – 10/24 ……188.4…… A normal fluctuation of muscle fluid. Extremely sore today from the past few days of yard work. Yesterday I walked over 25,000 steps, burned over 3100 calories. Walked over 10 miles. At almost age 60, my body is screaming “STOP”, but snow is in the near prediction and there’s still more to do before its arrival.
    Day 73 – 10/25 ……187.2…… Finally the meal planning & extra exercise showed up on the scale. The work days are hard but the paydays are fantastic!
    Day 74 – 10/26 ……186.6…… Avoided a binge last night. Whew, it was so close! I am proud of the strength I showed in powering through it. It was UNBELIEVABLEY tough!
    Day 75 – 10/27 ……187.8…… A perfect day of diet & exercise. Then along came the “charity” goodies I bought for “my son” which will help my grandson's graduating class in a few years. I ate half and it rewarded me with a 1.2 pound gain! I’ll be drinking more water today & keeping calories and carbs in check. Next time I will donate the dollars & not take the goodies!
    Day 76 – 10/28 ……187.8…… No change. Good night last night. Resisted more than the average bear!
    Day 77 – 10/29 ……188.8…… A bit over on carbs & calories yesterday. Today will be a good day. Travel tomorrow.
    Day 78 – 10/30 ……188.8…… Travel Day for Breast Cancer Remission re-check. Mammogram & Oncologist appointment at the University of Michigan. Long trip. Lots of sitting. Restaurant meals. I hate that I will end October after a massive travel day! However, I am not weighing in on Oct. 31st immediately following because of expected false fluid retention & bloat. I will pick it back up on the first, giving myself 24 hours to weight adjust.

    Weight Loss In October……………….. – 5.4 pounds

    Day 80 – 11/01 ……188.0…… I lost some of the travel bloat thankfully! Good luck everyone as we finish up this challenge in November!
    Day 81 – 11/02 ……188.0…… It’s a miracle that my weight is the same. I ate more calories & especially carbs that I had planned. Eating my emotions for sure due to serious health issues. But I remain UNSTOPPABLE at this point. Today will be a good day, the kind that I deserve!
    Day 82 – 11/03 ……185.6…… I actually did not eat enough yesterday, thus this drop. May float back up a bit but I know I am making progress. Healthier eating planned today with a few more calories & carbs than yesterday allowed.
    Day 83 – 11/04 ……186.0…… Too much indulgence in sodium filled food. Cals & carbs were not too bad, just bad choices in what I poked in my face.
    Day 84 – 11/05 ……186.0…… Holding steady but clearly not going to make my goal. I’m just happy at this point for ANY progress.
    Day 85 – 11/06 ……186.0…… Lots of water shedding last night, but no change on the scale. I had a great day. Stuck to food plan, ate very healthy choices and I exercised to my normal capacity. Patience is definitely part of this process!
    Day 86 – 11/07 ……186.0…… Stuck at this weight. I have a busy schedule today & will not be doing some of my normal walking. Maybe this will shake it up, one way or another!
    Day 87 – 11/08 ……186.8…… Nachos and fun sized candy combined with that lack of exercise I knew was coming. Not happy today but will be diligent.
    Day 88 – 11/09 ……186.8…… A good day yesterday but no movement on the scale. I walked off an extra 617 calories and kept my calories & carbs within reason. Still bloated from nachos I ate on day 86. Today I will focus on water.
    Day 89 – 11/10 ……186.6…… I followed plan & got in lots of extra calorie burning movement yesterday. I had hoped for a bigger drop on the scale, but trusting the process……. Unfortunately, tomorrow is travel and the following day (Day 91) will likely see an increase on the scale. It’s a very important day for me tomorrow medically. Please pray for me!
    Day 90 – 11/11 ……185.8…… Traveling for CT Scan. There will be Pizza involved in the travels.
    Day 91 – 11/12 ……188.6…… After travel weigh-in. Now, the work begins again.
    Day 92 – 11/13 ……188.6…… Some emotional eating last night, but great stats on the calorie burn & activity so it leveled it. News from the University is actually no news yet. Their call to me revealed that they are sending the CT’s for additional diagnostics with other specialists to see if a biopsy is in order. More waiting….
    Day 93 – 11/14 ……188.8…… I’ve got to pull it together.
    Day 94 – 11/15 ……188.0…… I don’t know that I deserve this after last night’s LNS, but I will take it and be humbled and grateful.
    Day 95 – 11/16 ……187.8…… Bad LNS again last night. I guess it was a mini binge. I think the scale only went down because of a much needed TMI. I’m going to try better today to eat less and much healthier! I’ve put Salmon on the menu for tonight.
    Day 96 – 11/17 ……187.0…… Well, clearly I am not going to lose 9.2 lbs in four days to make my goal, but I am still thrilled that I finally began to make progress again. I had not had any progress since November 2018 (only gains & yo-yo’s) so I call this success, not just progress. I will continue to work hard. 4 more days are 4 more chances to get lighter, toner & healthier!
    Day 97 – 11/18 ……185.8…… That’s more like it! I don’t know that I deserved the whoosh but I’ll take it!
    Day 98 – 11/19 ……185.8…… Holding steady but I was hoping for another drop as we near the end of this round. However, I can’t expect a whoosh two days in a row, right? Anyhow, very good day yesterday with diet & exercise. I even fit in some prep cooking. Dinner guests tonight who are NOT DIETING so I will try to be mindful!
    Day 99 – 11/20 ……184.6…… Ate candy corn so I had to eat a much lighter dinner with my dinner guests but it payed off. Carbs were too high but calories remained low. A nice drop on the scale afterall. Okay folks, lets all be good today & finish off with the best final weigh-in possible!
    Day 100 FINAL WEIGH-IN ……186.8…… Darn it! If I’d remembered it was our final weigh in, I may have made better choices yesterday. I overindulged with visiting family.

    Day 32: 143.2 hopefully I can be good today and stay on track.
    Day 33: 144.8 I thought I did a little better than this yesterday, but maybe it’s sodium or something.

    October 1st
    Day 49: 146.5 WTH????? No clue!
    Day 50: 143.9 it's coming back down.
    Day 51: 143.2 would have been lower but I ate a piece of pizza and 4 wings last night for dinner.
    Day 52: 142.0 and we are back to this number. These low 140's are going to be the death of me.
    Day 53: 141.5 almost back to my lowest last week
    Day 54: 141.5 still here but will probably see a bounce up tomorrow.
    Day 55: 143.2 not terrible for a Monday. Definitely my lowest Monday by far.
    Day 56: 144.9 not bad for a 3 day weekend. Went to a movie (Joker-was super weird) and snacked more than actually eating a meal all day. Back on track today.
    Day 57: 143.6
    Day 58: 142.9 kind of annoyed at my lack of progress. I only have 4 pounds to go to get to my maintenance and I am thinking it may be impossible to get into 130's. I am determined to stick to this and at least see 139 by the end of this month. UuugghhhH!!!
    Day 59: 141.4 a little lower than my lowest last week. Keep moving along.
    Day 60: 142.3 food was good, but I had a couple of beers with dinner. Why do I like beer so much?
    Day 61: 143.6 This is the rest of Friday night
    Day 62: 142.8 Nice way to start the week.
    Day 63: 142.3
    Day 64: 140.9 and we are back down to the lowest I have seen on the scale.
    Day 65: 140.9
    Day 66: 141.5 uuugghhh
    Day 67: 141.5
    Day 68: 143.9
    Day 69: 144.6 My Monday weigh ins are so bad!
    Day 70: 144.6 who knows why. I exercised for the first time in years yesterday and am really sore. Maybe that's why
    Day 71: 143.9
    Day 72: 144.6 dinner out for son's 20th bday last night and still slightly sore
    Day 73: 143.9
    Day 74: 142.3 no alcohol on a Friday night!

    @ deepwoodslady You are doing great! Especially with everything you have going on. You are making real progress the last couple of months!

    @realgirl177 I feel your struggle. I am right there with you! The last couple of pounds are so hard! Sometimes I wonder if they are really worth it, lol

    Next round will be set up today. Look for "100 DAYS OF WEIGHING #3" Hope to see you all there!

    GW: 70 before my 50th birthday 🎂!

    Day 20: 72.8 - it smells like a plateau to me, so I'll just keep on going, this will change !

    This will be my last post people, as I won’t be able to weigh anymore this month - it’s vacation time!!! Hopefully I will be able to maintain this weight throughout.
    See you in Oct!

    Day 48: 70.8 - I'm really chuffed about this, I had a lot of restaurants eats, but also a lot of exercise during these holidays. Absolutely glad that I didn't gain any weight without feeling restricted at all !

    Day 95: 69.6
    Nov 20th - Day 96: 69.1 - And I have no idea why this happened. I'm eating away my maintenance calories, and yesterday I even ate an extra 400 cals.
    Day 97: 69.1
    Day 98: 69.1

    I'm away for the weekend, so I won't have the opportunity to weigh on day 99 and 100. I'll start on Monday with the new thread.

    Conclusion of these last 98 days: I got to my maintenance weight, but now I'm struggling to stay there. Some days, I find it hard not to start bingeing, other days I find it hard to eat away all my allocated cals, as I got so used to eating less. I'm clearly a all or nothing type, and the next 100 days will be about finding balance.

    @deepwoodslady , @realgirl177, @jenn990205, @kmfeig87, @syreina and all other: see you in the next thread! :wink:

    I'm Trina. 54 and 5'4". Hoping to reach maintenance in these 100 days. I have surgery on day 42...That may cause some weirdness in the middle!

    Day 87 - 11/08: 130.5
    Day 88 - 11/09: 130.5 Some DOMS today...Also too much snacking :(
    Day 89 - 11/10: 131.5 A bit excessive on the snacking, plus burger fries and a beer--Actually, I didn't have a beer. I had to drink my husbands. I got carded, didn't have my wallet, and apparently, 54 was not old enough to pass! :) :0 :)
    Day 90 - 11/11: 131.5
    Day 91 - 11/12: 132.5
    Day 92 - 11/13: 132 Rats. Need to work harder so I can end below start weight!
    Day 93 - 11/14: 132 I swear I ate well yesterday and walked a lot!
    Day 94 - 11/15: 132 Stuck. Not sure what is going on that I am high this week.
    Day 95 - 11/16: 132
    Day 96 - 11/17: 131.5 Bizarre. Yesterday we had wine, beer and cake. Apparently there are fewer calories in my own drink then when I am forced to drink my husbands!
    Day 97 - 11/18: 131.5
    Day 98 - 11/19: 132.5 Hmm. Maybe TMI
    Day 99 - 11/20: 136.5 (Chemo stress weight??? I can't believe it jumped that high just on pure stress!)
    Day 100 11/21: 136 I was really bloated from the chemo IV....What a great way to end!
    Day 101 11/22: 132.5 Luckily I didn't post yesterday, so I can end a bit lower! Chemo bloat is mostly going away, but I think this is still high for what I am.

    End Result 101 days.... + 2.5 lbs from start

    On the other hand, I started two pounds from ultimate goal weight and their were lots of weird goings on in the 100 days including surgery & chemo, and I only had 4 days (not including those last 2, which I'm not counting!) that were outside of my selected maintenance range of 128-132. So not a bad run all in all, although not quite perfect.
