Round 88

Please join us! Starting on 08/31 JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, we will begin Round 88
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.

    Thanks @GrandmaJackie! I’m in. I’ve had the app since 2011 and use it on and off if I gain 5 or 10 lbs. Weight is up and I have managed to gain 30 lbs after saying “I do” I’ve reached my heaviest and need to get back to me. I’ve been tracking for a week and walking 3 mi a day for 2 weeks. This challenge will give me much needed accountability.
  • GrandmaJackieGrandmaJackie Posts: 24,650Member Member Posts: 24,650Member Member
    @jazzeb, welcome back! It seems like it’s sooo much easier to gain our weight then loss it! 😈. Outstanding job jumping right back on the horse!

    You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine. - John C. Maxwell
    My goal for 2019 is to get into ONEderland. Changing my life.
    Plans:
    - Find workout routine that works (walk, bike, planks, yoga, swim, take advantage of retirement to be more active); target 70k steps per week
    - Drink more water (target min 64 oz daily; start with 1 glass before coffee)
    - Journal Food Daily (tracking with MFP since 12/28/2018)
    - Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)
    - Drink less alcohol (4 AF days per week; ~16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)

    Round 88: Disappeared in R78 with very few WIs since and the lack of focus shows on the scale. Slowly trying to recover from the 5+ lbs gained since May.

    I’m in. Going back to work after 8 weeks off for surgery. I’m really going to need the accountability with the stress & busyness of working 12 hour shifts.

    So I am going to be out of town for the first 3 days of this round to attend my FIL's services. I am not going to have a lot of control over my food choices seeing as I will be eating what my husband's family will be serving and probably a lot of restaurant food. This round I am sure is just going to be another maintenance round for me, which I am fine with. If it takes me losing a pound or two a month until the end of the year to finally reach my goal I am fine with that.

    8/31 - no scale out of town

    Thank you @GrandmaJackie for another round. I fell out of the last round. Every day I gained and got so discouraged. I thought "what's the use, this is who I am". Then I told myself that I've lost the weight before, surely I can do it again. I lost 93 lbs back in 2002. Of course I was a lot younger then and I've been told it's harder to lose when you're older. Maybe though I CAN lose, but just at a slower pace. Wish me luck!
