    5/07/20 - 181.4
    I went to a nearby park yesterday for a walk, and holy cow, it was very busy with many groups of 4-8 people on the paths, no masks (except mine), no sense of holding back to allow distancing. I ended up cutting my walk short, getting off the path and onto the grass to get back to my car. I simply don’t get it. I guess I need to get my fanny out very early for walks. On a happier note, I get to pick up a bunch of plants from our Botanical Conservatory’s annual sale this afternoon! Yay!

    5/08/20 - 181.6
    Now that I have a bunch of new plants to plant, we’re getting a freeze tonight. So the plants are snuggled in for now on top of the washer and dryer. 🌿🌸🌱 We’ve been having some nice conversations. 😁 In the meantime, I have a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread in the oven — the last of my gift list for members of our congregation, although I’m going to bake more bread for friends — the looks on people’s faces when you deliver home baked bread is priceless! 🥖 Plus I love to bake but don’t need the results within snacking distance. It’s a win-win!

    5/09/20 - 181.6
    Cold night last night, but I covered my tulip buds, and everything else seems to have made it, too. Everything’s coming back to life. Last year this time there was nothing in this bed except the roses and a couple of really hideous shrubs. Now it makes me happy. Have a lovely Saturday, all. Be well.

    5/10/20 - 182
    Ok, I saw that coming. I went a little nuts last night and snacked in the evening. Emotional eating. But my average over the week is well below maintenance, so this is temporary. Planning a walk if the rain and wind hold off. Maybe a little gardening, too.

    5/11/20 -181.6
    Cold nasty wind, rain today....frost again tonight. I’m being extra wimpy about outdoor activity because I don’t want to get any kind of sick right now. I think I’ll order more yarn. 🧶

    5/12/20 - 181.8
    I spent most of the day yesterday on my butt updating my website and, when I got sick of that, knitting and listening to audio books. I’d forgotten what a rabbit hole that can be! This is supposed to be the last of the chilly days around here. I hope so! I’m itching to get into my garden and to amp up my walking program to get back to my old 5-10 miles a day. I felt so much better when I was doing that. The habit fell by the wayside 2 years ago when I got PMR. It’s time! I hope you’re all doing well.

    5/13/20 - 181.8
    Trying to cut myself some slack but I’m pretty disappointed in myself righ5 now for regaining so much weight and hanging out in this neighborhood for the past 3.5 months. Not sure if I need a hug or a kick in the pants. Maybe both? Anyway, it’s a lovely day so I’m off to walk on the Rivergreenway and then stop by one of my favorite nurseries—need some happy flowers. Be well!

    5/14/20 - 182.6
    Sodium. Pizza. Excuses. Kicking myself.

    5/15/20 - 181.8
    I’m scared to break out my warm-weather clothes. I’m sure a lot of things won’t fit. I’ve been wallowing in a “what difference does it make?” funk the past week, which isn’t me, so obviously some depressed entity has possessed me. I’m trying to exorcise the demon with work, garden, walks between squalls, knitting, audio books.... Then I remind myself that, quarantine or not, I have it pretty good. I hope you’re all finding ways to cope. Off to play with plants — they’re pretty optimistic!

    5/16/20 - 181.6
    Ok, next round. Cya there.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    05/06 …..204.9….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
    05/07 …..208.8 ….. Another jump up on the scale from the carbs (restaurant) during yesterday’s business travel. I got the special order of indoor/outdoor carpet picked up for the cabins. It is only available for a very limited time due to Michigan weather so I am thrilled to have gotten it in time and when things are slow enough to have it installed (soon I hope). Even though I am an essential business that supports other essential workers, things have really slowed down. General travel (just for vacation or fun) has been cancelled thru the mandates since March 23. The mandate in Michigan (for the national emergency) is due to expire May 28th, unless extended again. In my area, all summer events have been cancelled. All the money makers and all the things that bring tourists to my community (which will kill my motel business!) However, I do understand that those in my small little town just want to put a wall around it and keep everybody from the cities out. I get it but financially it is difficult. Yesterday in the big city many customers were not wearing masks even though it has been mandated to do so in stores and public places. I would say about 25% had no masks and I was shocked so many of the stores allowed it, including a walmart! It was a very long day. I tried to make a few stops and walk around a bit. My diet was completely off. Today I will be back to normal. Sorry Carbs, Sorry Sodium I will be flushing you away today!

    05/08 …..207.2 ….. Goodbye travel bloat! Yesterday had very little movement due to working on electronic downloads and ordering with someone more “expert” than me to help. It was an all-day process. Diet was on point and I was surprised to find no major extra hunger or cravings after a travel day that included extra carbs. That really helped make it much easier to stay on point. Today is more electronic stuff including new downloads to the visa/mc machine which will keep me on the phone awhile for instructions and imputing. I will try to move as much as I can in-between. Snow today in Michigan! Cold & gloomy outside so I will have to pull the ski-machine out again to burn a little. If I can fit in a dance or a Zumba, I will. Have a nice weekend everyone!

    05/09 …..204.8 ….. Okay, there goes the rest of the water retention and bloat from the travel. It took two full days, but I’m back to pre-travel weight. I plan on pre-logging food, doing some prep cooking today for the freezer and FINALLY getting some movement back in again, although it will all probably be indoors due to more snow and cold/freezing temps. It’s supposed to be Spring for Goodness Sakes in Michigan! In no way can we plant yet. I can’t WAIT for flowers!

    05/10 …..205.2 ….. My 60th Birthday!!!! Happy Birthday to me! So nice that it lands on Mother’s Day this year. A good day yesterday except for the freshly baked banana nut bread my daughter dropped off (wearing her mask of course). We have not been able, still yet, to get flour in our area so this was a nice treat (she had bought in bulk before covid-19). The calories stayed under, the carbs were over but it was worth it. Very moist. So there is an uptick on the scale. Even with my double holiday, I will try to keep it reasonable today. I don’t want to permanently wipe out any progress I am making. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

    05/11 …..205.1 ….. I am posting late because I have been outside cleaning out the barn & storage area. This will be a multi-day project which includes hired help. I’m hoping all my hard work will show up on the scale tomorrow!

    05/12 …..205.1 ….. I will be working in the barn again today. I realized that going through totes and boxes does not include much walking but I sure was on my feet a long time yesterday and I anticipate the same today. I kept the calories good yesterday but the choices included carbs that were a bit high and sodium I didn’t really need. Today, no matter how busy I stay, I will try to choose healthier options to keep all the macros in line.

    05/13 …..205.1 ….. Exactly the same weight which kind of surprised me. I worked so hard on barn cleaning yesterday. A ton of lifting and sorting. I am very sore today! Finally a beautiful day here with no snow. Temp to reach high of 60 today and no freezing temps tonight so off to the nursery I go with hired help to choose hundreds of flowers (600-1000) to plant for my home and my business too! Lots of work to do today so the calorie burn should be good. The trip to the nursery, however, will eat up about 4 hours of my time due to the travel, but I should get a lot planted this evening. Tomorrow is rain so back to work inside the barn for me tomorrow! Maybe this stagnant scale will finally move!

    05/14 …..205.0 ….. I was hoping for a bigger drop. Yesterday I was gardening all evening after the long trip to the closest nursery. About 50% of the flowers were planted. All the weeds pulled and the dairy doo put down too. Today is cold and rainy so we will be working inside the barn to try and finish that project. I think tomorrow should be better weather, we should be able to finish the flower planting. Today I woke up starving (after days and days of extra hard work). I probably ate too many carbs for one meal so I am going to watch the carbs and calories more carefully for the rest of this very long day. It should be okay.

    05/15 …..204.3 ….. Yay!!! Finally a good show on the scale as my hard physical work continues with the barn cleaning and the flower planting/gardening. This inspires me to stay on track! It is going to be a beautiful day here after more rain last night. The birds are chirping and the work awaits. Have a nice weekend everyone!

    05/16 …..204.3 ….. My goal is to end with any loss and while I would wish for more, I have accomplished the goal so I will be grateful and continue on. Good calorie burn yesterday as my gardening and barn cleaning continued. The diet was somewhere between good & evil. Nice round everyone. See you in 114!

    29 yo female
    5’2”
    SW 126.2 (April 14th, 2020)
    Highest lifetime weight: 138 lbs. August 2011
    Goal Weight: 110
    Last round: 125.2  122.8
    Goal weight for this round: 121 range
    Weight on 5/6: 122.8
    05/07 122.6 Sweet, lost another .2! Yesterday was good food wise. I made carnitas in the pressure cooker last night for dinner and turned them into bowls with brown rice, black beans, and mango salsa. They were yummy and will be dinner tonight too! Had another good walk this morning, around 3.5 miles. Last night was fun and I had a random sober dance party for like 45 minutes because my husband was listening to throw back pop songs covered by heavy metal singers. So, I couldn’t help but dance while he continued to be on the computer and enjoy his beverages. Have a good day everyone 😊.
    05/08 123.2 Water weight fluctuations are fun, this is probably due to my salty dinner last night but man was that Annie’s Mac and Cheese worth it. I had a craving and indulged but I did manage to stay within calories. I also savored every bite! So, it’s all good. I even squeezed in an impromptu cardio session before dinner last night! Just got back from our morning walk and it was accidentally extra long at 5.5 miles. I’ll take it 😊.

    05/09 123.2 I’ll take the steadiness at least. Maybe I’ll drop tomorrow. Who knows. Bodies are so weird when it comes to weight loss. Today was decent with food but kind of a hard day to track my dinner. I made myself an awesome bowl of oatmeal for my breakfast/lunch @ 11 because I intermittent fast. Then for dinner I made buffalo chicken cutlets so that was hard to calculate. I probably ate about 5 oz of chicken with a ¼ cup bread crumbs made from Ezekiel bread (the only stuff I had to make crumbs with) and a couple tablespoons worth of oil. There was also some hand made fries cooked in the air fryer. So, I did the best I could with my estimates and I guess that’s all you can do. I’m pretty sleepy today and was happy that I attended a virtual christening for my baby cousin because it gave me an opportunity to see some family via Webex and lay in bed for a couple hours 😊. It’s been a solid day. Have a good night everyone!

    05/10 122.8 Was busy with stuff for mother’s day and didn’t have a chance to pop in here. I made a pot roast in the pressure cooker with some carrots and parsnips. Then, I made some mashed potatoes to go with it. It was a nice family dinner with my in-laws and my mother in law appreciated me cooking it all. We live with them but don’t typically eat with them because our living space is separate from theirs. Didn’t really exercise this weekend except for some nice stretching on Saturday. My body definitely needed the rest though.

    05/11 122.8 Feeling a little slow moving today. We went on our usual walk but kept it to around 5k this morning. I might break my fast early this morning and have some tea because I have zero ambition to do any work today. Have a great day everyone!

    05/12 122.8 Hey all! Feeling much better today. I got a good night’s sleep and have a feeling the weight will be dropping this week because the hormonal water weight/ and ish will be clearing out soon. Energy is up and we went for an almost 5 mile walk today 😊. Food went well yesterday, and today’s plan is looking good too! I’ll be making some maple blueberry breakfast sausage that came in our CSA to be part of my first meal of the day. I’m excited to try it because it’s new to me! Have an awesome day!
    05/13 122.8 I’ll take this little stagnation, I’m just grateful to be maintaining it. My body feels good, so I’m happy with that. We did a 4 mile walk this morning and I did a 15ish minute body weight workout this morning. The energy is slowly starting to come back again. It’s so interesting how hormone fluctuations can make you feel throughout the month. I’m also going to try some fennel and dandelion tea to see if this weight is just a bit of fluid retention. I also had a carb heavy dinner but it was so good! It felt and looked like a restaurant meal. We had dry packed gnocchi with frozen meatballs, Rao’s marinara (our favorite sauce to treat ourselves) fresh basil and romano cheese on top. The best part is that it was within my calories for the day 😊.

    05/14 122.8 Got in another good walk this morning. My muscles were sore from my workout yesterday so I took it as a sign to rest and focused more on stretching this morning instead of a body weight workout. I might try to do some jump roping later on today to get in a little cardio. My food was good yesterday, I made a breakfast sandwich plus an orange for my first meal, snacked on some dried fruit in the afternoon and made a mushroom and veggie coconut milk dish served over brown rice and lentils. Solid day over all 😊 I hope you all are able to enjoy your day a bit!

    05/15 121.6 Woo! It’s been a while since I’ve seen that number 😊 Yesterday was a good day food wise and I managed to get in some jump rope too later in the day. We went on another really good walk this morning and broke 6 miles kind of accidentally. It was so nice though, 56 and the first day in a long time where I was able to wear a sweatshirt instead of a winter jacket.

    05/16 121.6 Hit my goal for the round! Yesterday was a really good day all around activity and food wise. Our dinner was so good last night. I marinated chicken thighs in jerk sauce and then made a jerk seasoning to put on top of the chicken while it was cooking. We had some brown rice and black beans to go with it. Perfection. If anyone needs a good jerk chicken sauce, Charley Kings was really yummy! It had a nice balance of flavor, heat/spice, and sweetness. Today is going to consist of some yard work and chores around the house like dishes. Enjoy your weekend!

    05/07 152 Off my 153.2 plateau hopefully. It’s time to move the scale this round. I’m motivated.
    05/08 151.4 Walked around the neighborhood yesterday and glad I did! 1.4 miles is way better than just the desk to the kitchen! 🤣 Happy Friday! I’m thinking of some weekend intentions to keep on similar schedule and meal times as much as possible.
    05/09 152.4
    05/10
    05/11 153.4 (did not keep routine)
    05/12 151.8 Yesterday I recorded but didn’t post because I was reflecting on the gain. It’s going to take more intentional methods to see the scale change. I don’t get excited about intermittent fasting, but that is what works. I’m going to stick with it for the rest of the round.
    05/13 152.4 I think my dinner is still with me 🤣 I did walk 1.7 miles yesterday. That felt really good. It’s a brand new day and I’m not giving up.
    05/14 151.8 I had a very sensible dinner last night and feeling good today. Woke up hungry but going to stick to the plan!
    05/15 151.6 Another good day yesterday sticking to the plan. Probably won’t make my goal this round but feeling like I’m on track and making some progress. Maybe I should revise my goals to a slower loss. 🤣 I’d love to work towards more of a trending loss next round instead of seeing the weekend gain. #goals
    05/16 151.8 I had a filling dinner date night last night and slept in today. Thanks for a good round and everyone’s postings that keep me grounded and motivated!

    Day/Weight/Comment
    05/07 187.2 Not what I was looking for. Eating well, under calories, but I have added strength and I’m eating some different foods at breakfast. Will wait this out for awhile but hope to find losses soon.

    05/08 187.0 Guess I’m basically on another plateau. Doing habits “right” but I’m going to have to wait for results.

    05/09 186.8 I’ve been looking for a bigger drop, but if I knew I would lose 0.2 everyday for the next few weeks I’d be happy.

    05/10 187.4 So much for dropping 0.2 everyday! I’m ending my week on maintenance as of today and hope the lower calorie target will help get me going again.

    05/11 187.6
    05/12 DNW
    05/13 187.6
    05/14 188.2
    05/15 187.6 clearly I’ve been struggling through the last few rounds. I’m going to keep hanging on, though. Even if I just maintain I’m still down 25 for the year.
    05/16 185.6 Wow, didn’t expect this. But very gratifying not to have to put a gain as the result of this round. Yesterday was very good for my self efficacy—I met all my commitments for eating and exercise, including staying in the green, and I was compassionate to myself (very consciously avoiding restrictive, punitive thinking and instead dwelling on my successes and how good it feels to perform my healthy habits). On to the next round!

    Round 113: -1.0

    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    *****
    05/07 120.5 Reaction to carbs. I wasn’t excessive but my body hates them. Only 30 total grams, 26 net but the good news is that those tortilla chips I used to love are really not that good. Amazing how taste changes when you avoid that garbage. Also bloated and my shorts are tight when they were loose a couple of days ago.
    05/08 120.0
    05/09 120.5
    05/10 119.5
    05/11 121.0 Great Greek salad always does this. It will pass. Late addition- I weighed last night on the way to bed and almost had a stroke! I was 126!! Up 5.5 from yesterday morning. I got up and peed THREE times during the night! I know it will go back down in a day or two. The advantage of weighing daily and learning my body’s patterns.
    05/12 121.0 Online grocery shopping stinks!
    05/13 120.5 I can’t believe this round is almost over!
    05/14 121.5 Fasted until 3PM yesterday and then had one meal and a snack by 8:30, went to bed just before 11.
    05/15 120.0 I was right on my macros even after enjoying part of a baked potato with dinner.
    05/16 119.0 Dinner last night was salty but also very early - before 4PM. Average up but weight down and 18# below my original goal so life continues to be good. Special day tomorrow but unfortunately no special plans - thanks COVID-19!

    Hi, I’m Karen and I’m in my 50’s
    OSW-187 Sept. 2018

    Goal Weight this Round: Stay in 50’s-
    Drink plenty of water and get the boxes unpacked.
    RSW-153 RGW-150
    5/7-153-Off to meet movers to load the truck. Long day.
    5/8-DNW
    5/9-154-I’m OK with this. The movers brought our items from storage and I walked 5.5 miles putting it away. We are in the process of moving from where we have lived for the last year and it is hot. I’m off to the grocery store and will look like a hoarder, loading the empty refrigerator and cupboards.
    5/10-154
    5/11-153-My husband had our boys surprise me and they showed up to help us get moved and to celebrate Mother’s Day and my birthday. It was a wonderful weekend and we all got to spend the first night in our new house together.
    5/12-153-Glad to be holding. I cut up lemons and cucumbers had them in my water all day. Same today; it makes me feel healthy. I’m taking a walk this morning, then by quilt shop that is only open 2 hrs./week. Then back to working on boxes.
    5/13-152-Walked some in the morning, then worked on boxes and unpacking and ended up walking 6 miles. Lots of water.
    5/14-151-IF for 19 hrs. Ate sensibly, no walk but on my feet all day, drinking lemon/cucumber water. No cravings for junk.
    5/15-150-IF 17 hr. I don’t log my food because MFP is rude and tells me it’s not healthy to eat like that...IF, meaty salad for lunch, protein shake and VEGES for dinner. That’s what works for me. I don’t think a women in her 50’s designed this app.
    5/16-148-IF 19 hrs. Hopefully this lasts; my goal will be to maintain it. Still opening boxes and drinking cucumber lemon water.

    Round 113 - May 7 to 17
    Female, 5’, 67 years. SW – 168.4 GW – 167 or lower, UGW – 140.
    Goals: continue with 12 hr. IF, 5-6 glasses of water a day (I drink lots but it tends to be tea. I limit the black/green to 4 lg. mugs), complete my tracking every day and get some kind of outdoor exercise unless it is raining – in which case indoors. Did not do well on the exercise or IF the last couple of rounds and it shows – a steady creep up.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    05/07 – 168.4 – This is the most I have ever weighed, period. I am retaining water as my newly sized rings are suddenly tighter and my whole system seems slowed down. It may be that my thyroid meds. need changing but I have been the same dose for about 35 years. So first I’m going to just try drinking lots of water and walking. I have not been great on IF the last week but am quite sure I’m been within maintenance cals.
    05/08 – 169.2 – This is crazy. I actually changed the battery in the scale because I couldn’t believe it. Tracked cals. and was under maintenance, IF 12 hrs. and did 20 mins. exercises. Supper was a little salty but something we eat regularly and haven’t noticed a bounce before. Yesterday was rainy but today beautiful so will be working outside.
    05/09 – 169 – Tracked all (rather late) and was just at maintenance because of mango and hot choc. in the evening. Think I may have figured out cause of my water retention – black licorice. I don’t eat it often but every once in a long while get a craving for it. I ate about ½ a package in 3 days. I wonder if the craving is because my blood pressure is low because it both raises blood pressure and causes water retention as well as depleting potassium. Anyhow, staying away from it and ate some banana with frozen hascap berries.
    05/10
    05/11 – 168.8 - Nice Mothers’ Day yesterday – a lot of time on the phone. I hear from my 4 girls regularly but the 2 boys it tends to only be special days. Did not log at all yesterday but noted on Sat. that I was just at maintenance. So going to focus on tracking this next 6 days. Beautiful weather here so a major push this week to get the yard in shape for listing our house. Real Estate here seems to be up, much to our surprise. Maybe a reaction to people wanting to get out of the big city?
    05/12 – 168.6 – No IF but did track cals. Kept in maintenance even though I snacked in the evening. Did about 4 hrs. yard work but didn’t count the calories as I think MFP allows way too much for it. I did about 1 hr. that involved some digging and the rest was just sitting cleaning up perennials. I did go for a 20 min. evening walk on some of our steeper streets. Haven’t done that in a long while – so out of shape but a lovely evening.
    05/13
    05/14 – 167.8 – Nice surprise. Tracked until supper and then was in too much of a hurry to get back outside. I’m guessing calories were maintenance or just under. Yard work all afternoon and evening till it got too cold. May tends to be rainy/showery here so it’s ‘get stuff done’ whenever the rain stops. When I came in cold and tired figured I needed a little snack and hot chocolate. At least I’m not too sore on the arms after all my digging out grass.
    05/15 – 167.4 – Another day of digging and not doing so great in the evening. Today, more digging if it doesn’t rain and IF in the evening so I can get the whole benefit of my hard work. Also did some stretches this am to help balance things out.
    05/16 – 167.8 – Again, good day but evening snacking and stayed up too late. I think I have got rid of the water retention but likely gained a little in the weight since the beginning of the last round. Long phone call and rain limited the yard work but did get some done plus some housework. Got rid of a mound of gopher diggings (about 8 4-liter pails) just below our old stone retaining wall. Thankfully the gophers are gone – scary though to think what they have done behind that wall. As I was about to haul away the last bucket, the light dawned and I started pushing the subsoil in any place there seemed to be a space in that area of the wall. Then realized that the stones that I keep picking out of the beds would be even better and unloaded all that I had on hand. I think the stones roll down the tunnels – definitely want to fill up as much as I can to discourage any new ‘dwellers’ from moving in and keep the wall stable. On to the next round …

    Lost 5.4 pounds in 10 days. Fasting blood sugar down 126! Walked 6/10 days.

    I"ve been gone for about two years. I’ve been back at this for 1 week and lost 5 pounds. I know it won’t continue at that pace but it’s nice to have the reinforcement that I know how to do it.

    Food diary is open. I'm working with delivered food from the community we live in and what we can order from the grocery store.

    Day/Weight/Waking Blood Sugar/ Walk Steps/Comment

    05/07 266.8 287 1600 The walking steps are 5 times around our parking lot + 100 roundtrip to the lot.
    05/08 266.4 281
    05/09 264.8 268
    05/10 264.6 279 1300 Walking after two days skipped and in a whole gale. I hope to be back up to 5 tomorrow
    05/11 264.2 212!!
    05/12 263.4 263 1900 steps I’ve been back at this for 1 week and lost 5 pounds. I know it won’t continue at that pace but it’s nice to have the reinforcement that I know how to do it.
    05/13 262.8 208 1900 steps. Had a tele-appointment with an endocrinologist today. She gave me a fasting target of 130 and a two-hours-post-meal target of 180. She’s also changing my drugs.
    05/14 263.4 198!!
    05/15 261.8 203 1300 steps. 80 degrees on pavement in sunshine is enervating. Gotta measure steps around cooler parking garage for warmer weather. Rubber gloves and a mask don’t help!
    05/16 261.4 161!!! 1300 steps again. Tried stretching my right hip flexor before the walk but it seems to work better to do the stretch in the middle to relieve hip pain.

    I' m in! Thank you, @GrandmaJackie!

    70 year old female...5'5" ...I used to be 5'7" but arthritis hit and I lost two inches, so now that two inches is squished around my waist like the billows of a big accordion... :D...Oh, well. I'll just keep working on it.

    We used to walk 5 miles a day. A pinched nerve and back surgery side-lined me for about a year. Then I had back surgery. Then I had hip surgery March 10th. Recovery is slow. Sure do want to be back walking!

    The Shelter in Place has everyone freaked. We need to remain calm and respectful of each other.
