    This week's successes: I am keeping within my limits of carbs/sugar. Staying active through housework or exercise. Trying to eat healthier.
    This week's challenges: Sometimes I am sore from the day before so it’s hard to exercise. Craving sweets. Not drinking enough water or if I do it is late at night which wakes me up to go to the bathroom.

    This week's successes: I did really well with the workouts. I'm considering to not eat back calories though, the needle doesn't seem to be moving if I do.

    Starting weight: 190
    Current weight: 169.6
    Week 19 Total weight lost: 20.4

    This week's successes: 4,6-pound weight loss. Caught up to and passed the 52 in 52 goal. 20.4 pounds in 19 weeks

    This week's challenges: Continue Alternating Day Fasting (ADF). This fasting technique is what I attribute to catching up to the 52/52 curve. I want to use ADF to get closer to my ultimate goal weight. I’m not certain I can sustain ADF as a Way Of Existing (WOE). I will use ADF to approach my goal, then as a maintenance tool to stay there. I am so happy to be back on the curve!

    Week 19
    This week's successes: I am feeling more relaxed and feeling a lot more confident in my clothing. My energy levels while working out are improving and my walking stamina has really improved.
    This week's challenges: As the lockdown's ease, another challenge is to maintain home-cooking habits. THIS (from last week --> it got me!) So I need to HOME COOK. The other thing that changed last week was I walked more and did less workouts. I am going to focus on food this week and see if that's enough, if not I'll start to up the workouts. But I'll give it a week with a focus on home-cooked.

    2/03 Goal: 248 / Actual: 244.4 / -37.6 Over All / -15.6 for the Challenge. 4 Workouts Achieved & 2 PT sessions. A little more movement in the neck. Swinging a golf club not so good, need to strengthen lower back.

    2/10 Goal: 246 / Actual: 238.6 / -43.4 Over All / -21.4 for the Challenge. 4 Workouts Achieved & 2 PT sessions. Neck getting a little better. Golf swing with weighted training club seems a little better. Maybe ready to hit a few balls on the range.

    2/17 Goal: 244 / Actual: 234.8 / -47.2 Over All / -25.2 for the Challenge. Fun Week but a tough one on the diet. 2 Days in the Bahamas… Stone Crab Claws & Mustard Sauce & Conch Salad! And 2 days out of town with family. Worked hard this weekend to get back under last week’s weight and actually lost a few pounds. Managed to get in 4 workouts & 1 PT session. 230 in my sights!

    2/24 Goal: 242 / Actual: 237.8 / -44.2 Over All / -22.2 for the Challenge. I think my body finally caught up with what is going on and put the brakes on the weight loss. Gave back a few pounds this week. That’s okay, hopefully it is muscle and I am still under my Weekly Goal. Eating Healthy and Working Out but I Need to fine tune my calorie intake and get back to logging in food daily.

    3/02 Goal: 240 / Actual: 237.6 / -44.4 Over All / -22.4 for the Challenge. Hope everyone had a great week! I’ve been eating healthy and exercising but still stuck at 237-238. Going to have to really watch my daily calorie intake and cut back on portions some. Still under weekly goal weight so that is a positive.

    3/09 Goal: 238 / Actual: 236.8 / -45.2 Over All / -23.2 for the Challenge. Hello All. Hope you had a good week. It has been a battle for me. My body is not making it easy for me. Finally got my neck feeling better and now I’m having issues with my middle and lower back. Workouts haven’t had the intensity I would like. Still managed to lose a pound and stayed under weekly goal weight.

    3/16 Goal: 236 / Actual: 235.2 / -46.8 Over All / -24.8 for the Challenge / -1.6 this week. Had a good start to the week but was out of town Thursday, Friday and Saturday and ate out a lot and missed a few workouts. Got back on track Saturday night and Sunday to get back under my weekly goal.

    3/23 Goal: 234 / Actual: 237.4 / -44.6 Over All / -22.6 for the Challenge / +2.2 this week. Good news / Bad News… Good news: I was able to play 2 rounds of golf and my neck and back are doing well. Bad news: (other than the world shutting down for Corona Virus) I was out of town for a couple days and ate out and take out and I gained a couple pounds back and I am above my weekly goal weight for the first time since I started November 1st. Doesn’t help that my gyms (even the community gym at my complex) are closed. Really need to bear down and stick to healthy eating and get my exercise in this week and get back on track with weekly weight goal! No Excuses!

    3/30 Goal: 232 / Actual: 234.4 / -47.6 Over All / -25.6 for the Challenge / -3.0 this week. Hope everyone is staying safe and virus free. Even more reason to eat healthy and get your vitamins and minerals in and keep your immune system strong. Tried to keep from splurging this week and was able to get 3 pounds back. Need to get some good cardio in this week and get back to my weekly goal weight.

    4/06 Goal: 230 / Actual: 233.3 / -48.7 Over All / -26.7 for the Challenge / -1.1 this week. Hello everyone. I hope you and your family and friends are staying safe. Hang in there! Things will get better! It has definitely been a challenge to stay active since everything is shut down. I was able to get in a 7-mile run and a 22-mile bike ride to get in some cardio. Doing some stretching and core exercises and practicing the golf swing at home.

    4/13 Goal: 228 / Actual: 232.5 / -49.5 Over All / -27.5 for the Challenge / -.8 this week. Slacked off this week. Gotta be more consistent with my exercises. Got in some bike rides and some golf swing practice. Eating pretty healthy but need to cut back on my portions.

    4/20 Goal: 226 / Actual: 233.6 / -48.4 Over All / -26.4 for the Challenge / +1.1 this week. Started the week off good but out of town for a few days got me off my routine. Was good to get away on the boat for a couple days… 11 tuna, 4 dolphin, 3 kingfish!

    4/27 Goal: 224 / Actual: 231.8 / -50.2 Over All / -28.2 for the Challenge / -1.8 this week.

    Phase 1 Recap:
    #1 Goal: Weight 224: Well… I wasn’t able to reach my Phase 1 Weight Goal but I did reach the -50lb loss mark so pretty happy with that.
    #2 Goal: Heal my Neck & Back without Surgery – Achieved.
    #3 Goal: Play Golf – Achieved, back in the swing of things and able to play or practice on a regular basis (If courses are open)
    Phase 2 Goal: Run a 5K: Achieved. I actually skipped the 5K and went right to the 10K. Definitely didn’t break any records but got it done!

    Original post:
    I'm not sure I have 52 pounds of fat that I want/need to lose at this point, but I'm close enough that I'm going to call myself "in."

    Starting weight: 197.1 pounds
    (HSW: 252, MFP restart: 242.7)
    5'1" F

    Goal: 21.5% body fat
    (currently estimated at 140-145)

    Current weight: 197.1
    Total challenge weight lost: 0.0

    This week's successes: Getting back into deficit after a maintenance break.
    This week's challenges: Extremely low motivation (for life-ing in general -- not out of the norm, as I battle physical and mental health issues on an ongoing basis).

    A heads up: I will likely go faster than 1 pound/week for the first 4-ish months, then looking to tighten up and go into a slow loss followed by a recomp phase. I'll likely make 52 pounds of weight loss on the scale with some skin loss (hopefully), along with lean mass having to do with the support of the fat stores I have. I am aiming to maintain/increase muscle mass and bone density, so that may throw off the scale results. I do hope to reach my goal body fat percentage by the year's end, whatever scale weight that puts me at.

    This week's successes: Continued Alternate Day Fasting (ADF). Stayed on our 52/52 schedule.

    Highest weight: 250 (07/11/18)
    Challenge starting weight: 173.2 (12/31/19)
    Goal weight: 150
    Current weight: 183.8 (05/17/2020)
    Total weight lost: -66.2
    Challenge weight loss: +10.6

    This week's successes: I managed to eat within my calorie range for 4 days.

    This week's failures: I've gained 18.9 pounds in the last 2 months. The stress of all the upheaval has wrecked my eating. I avoided posting for awhile but I finally started getting back on track. My pattern is to lose weight then put it all back on (and then some). Gaining 20 pounds is a huge wake up call for me. I do not want to put it all back on. I'm trying to take it slow and think about what I need to change to make this work long term. I really thought that I had conquered it so it was a blow to find out that actually the old patterns of emotional eating and bingeing are still there.
