Round 97

Please join us! Starting on 11/29 JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, we will begin Round 97
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.

    Glad to have you back! It’s extremely HARD to lose weight but finding its is another story. Maybe change one thing, once you make that a habit, work on something else. You know what it takes, you can do this!

    Ah thanks for your kind words! I think I found some of my mojo !
    I started back with piloxing, stopped eating mindlessly and back to walking the dogs more to get in my steps. I was 147 this morning. Huge drop from 152 so I can only assume it must not have been all fat!!! ha ha! Still WAY above where I was so I'm on a mission now. How hard I worked to lose those 10lbs only to have found them all again, why on earth did I do that to myself!

    Back for Round 96
    Female / Age 62 / 5'2"
    OW: 158.5 (12/30/18)
    UG: 135.0 (for now, healthy weight for me)


    Intro:
    Let me introduce myself. I struggled with my weight as a teen, topping out at nearly 200. I dropped it after high school and got to a healthy weight. Every major life changed has brought weight back on - having kids, pre-menopause, menopause, family tragedy, post menopause. I've knocked it back down each time, and have been surprised that each time required a different strategy, and resulted in a different type of lifestyle change to maintain. Each time as been much harder and slower. At this point, it's moving off at a snail's pace.

    Motivation. I have a hyatial hernia. It does not bother me as long as I keep the weight at 150 or below. Every female on my mother's side has had arthritic knees, and I'm starting to feel twinges. They have also sustained falls and broken bones. My husband had a major health scare a coupe of years ago. The idea of being put out of commission by a preventable injury or illness scares the bejimminies out of me.

    Goals. The goals at this stage are to drop weight to a healthy range, realign my eating style to a lifestyle that will keep me healthy into my golden years, and strengthen the muscles that support my knees, ankles, and shoulders, along with my core, to prevent injury.

    Dropping weight post menopausal has been so difficult, I need this to be the last time. 10-15 pounds used to be easy to drop, so that was always my warning bell to focus. Not so much now. Looks like a 3-5 pound fluctuation will be it.

    A healthy weight for me is 135-140. I've always looked anorexic at 120. We'll see how things are at 135, and go from there.

    Round Stats
    R95: SW 146.3 GW 146.0 EW 145.3 Results -1.0
    R96: SW 145.3 GW 144.0 EW 145.0 Results - 0.3

    Strategy: Up the hydrating foods. Fruit with breakfast. Salad/veggies as bulk of lunch. Healthy dinner. Limit/eliminate processed carbs and sugars. Zero calorie intake after 8pm. Strength exercises 3 days on/1 day rest. Regular movement through day to compensate for desk job.

    R97 Challenges: Getting back on track after Thanksgiving. I'll be starting December off with a Hydration Challenge to increase the amount of plant based hydration in my diet.

    R97 SW: 145.0 (11/28 Will be interesting to see if this stays steady after today's dinner)
