    I have been tracking, and I thought I had posted weekly weights, but I can't find them. I have got back down below 150, but it's slow going.

    Let's try this again. Never give up! Never give in!
    I'm Terri, 74 on 20/04/2020, living in Northern Ireland, 5'2" tall.

    Talk about a whoosh after a plateau! In the last few days, I achieved the 130 goal I set for myself 10 years ago. 10 years and 2 kids later, I finally got there yesterday. As I’ve lost this weight, I realized how good it will feel not carrying around those extra 15 pounds, especially on my knees. My knees aren’t in the best shape, and I love to run, so I lowered my UGW another 5lbs to 125. I’m hoping to get there by Memorial Day but with all that’s happening, being at home 23 hours each day, I’m happy just not gaining.

    I'm at a stand still, currently trying to hold on to 167... I just feel exhausted and looking for comfort foods. :( I worked out for 20 mins today, but the lack of energy was noticeable while I pushed through.

    MY NAME IS DONNA. I AM 59 YEARS YOUNG & FROM THE MIDWEST USA. I AM APPROX 5’ 5” TALL.



    Start date: February 1, 2020
    Challenge Starting Weight: 191.6 on January 31st
    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴ (15 lbs.)
    Challenge Goal weight: 176.6

    February 01: 191.6 Good luck everyone!

    February 08: 192.0 I started my new plan in order to figure out what is going on with my glucose numbers. Watching calories more than carbs this time (glucose has been running too low!). Today and yesterday found my glucose too high so I will continue to tweak to see if I can come up with a good weight loss plan without hurting my T2D efforts. I am down 0.1 from yesterday which I will call a normal fluctuation.
    February 15: 194.8 Clearly my Valentine’s Day was wonderful and full of food and candy-filled surprises. Back at it today.
    February 22: 195.0 My weight went up this past week after travel and more glucose problems. At a snail’s pace, it is slowly coming back down over the past 2 days. I hope next week’s weight will be even better!
    February 29: 198.6 A 3 lb gain overnight. ½ of a restaurant meal. Good calorie count. Good extra exercise. But carbs hate me. Back to the grind again today!

    Total Loss for February ……………… 7.0 lb GAIN
    Total Accumulation of Weight Loss for Challenge…………




    March 01: 199.8
    March 08: 201.0 You can eat too much diet food too. Clearly.
    March 15: 200.1
    March 22: 202.0 ugg. Ingredients are getting hard to find in this tiny one store town. I went about 100 miles from here to a city that has 3 different grocery stores (including Walmart) last Monday but it was just as bad due to the higher population. My freezer is pretty full, but the sides are the challenge without getting into too many carbs. Okay, keeping my chin up. This too shall pass.
    March 29: 203.5 No comment.
    March 31: 203.5 Eating sugar here too. Once you start, it’s hard to stop and it calls and haunts you daily. A horrible addiction. I am going to work on that starting TODAY on a much more intense level.

    Total Loss for March ………….. 4.5 lb GAIN
    Total Accumulation of Weight Loss for Challenge………… 11.9 lb GAIN



    April 01: 203.2
    April 08: 202.8 Okay! That is more like it. Now, just to keep up the momentum. Clearly, I can't make my goal for this challenge, but I can make improvements and get back on track!
    April 15: 203.5 Back to basics!
