    I will never ever weigh 270 again. Soon I will say the same about 260.

    Starting weight: 272 (1-1-20)

    Goal WT 259

    7/8: 269.9
    7/16: 267.8 I keep gaining and losing the same 2 or 3 pounds its nuts I tell ya.
    8/10: 267.5 Its a work in progress, still waiting for that big drop but so far it has been slow coming.
    8/17: 268.0 Am I disappointed in losing only 4 lbs this year? Yep. Am I still determined to have a great year of losing wt and getting healthier? Yep.
    8/24

    10/28 265.5 Yes It has been awhile but the fight continues. I have been doing some short term challenges as well and it has been a battle. Down 6.5 lbs this late in the year is not that exciting but its 6.5 lbs less than I weighed Jan 1st. Yes my goals have changed this late in the year but if I hit my target Jan 1 2021 I will be quite happy. Next weigh in Nov 1st, hey we have two more months left and a lot can happen in 60 days. Keep at it folks.

    11/8 264.0 down 8 on the year, still time to do some good, the fight continues

    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.

    7 weeks till 2021 🎉

    A pound a week seemed reasonable in January until I checked out back in the spring and then gained even more. 15 lb loss in 2019; gained back 5 before 2020; gained back 6 more during pandemic spring 2020. Starting again in August to continue my journey! I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    I'll turn 60 this year and really want to get into Onederland and make it stick this decade!
    2019 Starting Weight: 245 (1/2/2019) BMI 43.4
    2020 Starting Weight: 235 (1/1/2020) BMI 41.6
    Goal weight: <200 in 2020
    Current weight: 214.5 BMI 38.1
    Total weight lost: 30.5

    Past week's successes: Controlled the food in a challenging environment while supporting my mom through her husband’s sudden hospitalization after a fall, ICU, Hospice, Memorial. I basically organized the meals & cooked for everyone so that our scales were not going up!
    This week's challenges: Continued stressful week ahead caring for my mom and driving to Arkansas for the funeral. It will be difficult to get my 100 miles of walking in November if I continue to let other things get ahead of my personal priorities. Need to care for myself as I care for others!

    Every day is a new beginning. While my logging hasn't improved, my running has. Completed a half marathon training run yesterday in celebration of my 62nd birthday. Still haven't broken that 3:00 mark but I'm so close I can almost grab it. Will get in at least one more before my organized half on Jan 3.

    Past week's successes: Walked most days but lots of days in the car to South Texas and to Arkansas. Funeral and tons of food off plan. Roller coaster scale week due to all the travel, but today and earlier in the week saw the same thing my mom’s scale showed last Monday … consider being under 215 a success!
    This week's challenges: This week 2 book clubs, DH’s birthday and our anniversary … plus my mother returns after visiting relatives and we’ll need to help her adjust. It is going to be difficult for her without her husband … and also adds another element for my sister & I to consider and think through if she is able to live on her own.

    Week 46. Holding the line
    Spent a few weeks enjoying my eldest before she headed off to live with her mother in California to attend school on-line from there. Wasn’t as diligent in my diet so we could enjoy her favorite foods and activities. Getting back into the swing of things is taking some adjustment (cooking for two instead of three), but I’m slowly working to get back on track, pushing to under the curve before she returns for Thanksgiving.

    Starting weight: 233 lbs
    Goal weight: 165 lbs
    Current weight: 189 lbs
    Total weight lost: 44 lbs, +.3 lbs since last entry (week 42)

    This Week’s Successes:

    Still riding and started walking as well in preparation for a “Tough Turkey 5k” my sister and sister-in-law challenged me to do. Sticking with my logging and have kept under my adjusted calorie targets on most days, though no days above 2,000. I guess holding the line under 190 is a success, but it feels hollow as the pounds lost number falls under the weeks passed number.

    This Week’s Challenges:
    Rain. Hurricane Eta threw a wrench in my riding earlier in the week, but it cleared it and I was able to get in a couple good rides before the rain returned. Not used to walking, so my feet are complaining. Still finding less healthy snacks in the pantry that make their way into my day; not many, but caving in on a Zebra cake doesn’t feel as bad when i’m losing…
