    8th Week Actual Weight: 162.8 (These past 2 weeks have been more aggressive and it shows. While I transition into something not so aggressive the next few weeks, we'll see what happens, but of course, I am happy and want to keep this momentum up! It's been a LOOOONG TIME since I've been in the 150s, so that's what I'm currently striving for!

    Day 55: Sun, 8/2: 162.8
    Day 56: Mon, 8/3: 163 (Weigh-In Day) (-1.2 lbs lost since last week)
    Day 57: Tues, 8/4: 164 (not going to fret yet, I'm not being as aggressive this week, but if this continues, I may change it up again)

    Day 64: Tues, 8/11: 163.8 (I love the week before TOM! lol)
    Day 65: Wed, 8/12: 164.6 (I'm going to attribute this to week before TOM and the new heavy lifting routine I've been doing and *crossing fingers* hope it's muscle haha! I'm not going to worry too much about the numbers just yet as I've been still within my goals!)
    Day 66: Thurs, 8/13: 164
    Day 67: Fri, 8/14: 163.8
    Day 68: Sat, 8/15: 164.6 (Ate crappy, but that's because my daughter is here and that's okay! I'll go back to normal on Monday, but for now, we are enjoying our time together. I mean I'm not eating TOO bad, but definitely different than my norm and it will definitely show on my weigh in day. But the good thing is that we've been very active and I'm still getting my workouts in somehow!)

    10th Week Goal Weight: 162
    10th Week Actual Weight: 164.6

    Day 69: Sun, 8/16: 166 (Ouch, that is scary looking, but I'm not going to let it get to me. Today is my last day with my daughter and tomorrow is a new day, plus TOM is next week as well. I've still been active, but haven't been able to do my strength training. All back to normal tomorrow. We are having a great time together and that's more important to me than numbers right now!)
    Day 70: Mon, 8/17: 166.6 (Weigh-In Day) (+3.8 since last week) - (As awful as this looks, I'm not letting this get to me. I just dropped my daughter off at the airport and we had a wonderful time together! Today I will be back to my regular schedule and will work hard to get this off. I know what I need to do. Also this week is TOM so we'll see what happens!)
    Day 71: Tues, 8/18: 165.6 (Back on track with my workouts and eating schedule. Strength training yesterday was tough though.)
    Day 72: Wed, 8/19: 164.6 (It's weird how each day fluctuates so much, but that's just how it is!)
    Day 73: Thurs, 8/20: 162.4 (Lol, I don't understand this at all, but whatever!)
    Day 74: Fri, 8/21: 161.6 (I guess all that good food I ate, while not immense was just salty?? Still so strange!)
    Day 75: Sat, 8/22: 161.2

    11th Week Goal Weight: 164
    11th Week Actual Weight: 161.2

    Day 76: Sun, 8/23: 161.2
    Day 77: Mon, 8/24: 161.2 (Weigh-In Day -5.4 lbs since last week) (So glad this stuck! I lost the weight I gained plus an extra 1.6 lbs to bring me back to where I needed to be)
    Day 78: Tues, 8/25: 160.6 (I wasn't hungry last night after my workout and after my protein shake. I still had quite a bit to go and I struggled to make my macros. I still did fairly well, but still didn't reach them. Maybe I should eat more at lunch just in case.)
    Day 79: Wed, 8/26: 160.2
    Day 80: Thurs, 8/27: 160.4
    Day 81: Fri, 8/28: 159.8 (I haven't seen the 150s in 4 years. I'm not going to be TOO happy yet, since weight fluctuates daily, but it's still so nice to see!)
    Day 82: Sat, 8/29: 160.2

    12th Week Goal Weight: 160
    12th Week Actual Weight: 160.2 (I'm happy with this! Gotta keep it up!)

    Day 83: Sun, 8/30: 159.4
    Day 84: Mon, 8/31: 160.4 (Weigh-In Day; -.8 lbs since last week. I'm happy with whatever I can get!)
    Day 85: Tues, 9/1: 161.2 (I'm a bit off this week for some reason. I'm trying so hard to get at least 7 hours of sleep, but I only get 5-6. That's probably my biggest struggle. I need my body to fully rest, so I can keep going. I woke up with a cramp in my calf, so I didn't want to get up to work out, so I gotta try after work.
    Day 86: Wed, 9/2: 161.2 (sorta back on track today with my morning workout. I just wish I could sleep more than 6 hours!)
    Day 87: Thurs, 9/3: 161 (Just came back from a 3 mile trail walk with my doggy. It was great!)
    Day 88: Fri, 9/4: 161 (Admittedly this week I haven't been 100% following my macros, but I am still under my calorie goals. But I feel so much better sticking to my macros, so gotta get back to it!)
    Day 89: Sat, 9/5: 160.4 (Trying to get back to the 150s and stay there - this week has been tough, but happy where it's ended thus far.)

    13th Week Goal Weight: 158
    13th Week Actual Weight: 160.4
    Day 90: Sun, 9/6: 160.4
    Day 91: Mon, 9/7: 160.2 (Weigh-In Day; -.2 lbs since last week. Whew! Wasn't sure I was going to lose anything, so I'm happy about this. This week will be much more intense, so we'll see how these final days go. My ultimate goal now for this challenge is to reach 15 lbs lost.)
    Day 92: Tues, 9/8: 161 (Next week is TOM, so I know how this goes and am expecting the gain this week, just gotta remember the loss that comes with it!)
    Day 93: Wed, 9/9: 161
    Day 94: Thurs, 9/10: 160.8
    Day 95: Fri, 9/11: 160.2
    Day 96: Sat, 9/12: 159.8 (Glad to see this again, no matter how small or short lived!)

    14th Week Goal Weight: 159
    14th Week Actual Weight: 159.8

    Day 97: Sun, 9/13: 159.8
    Day 98: Mon, 9/14: 160.2 (Weigh-In Day; 0 lbs lost since last week. So maintained. I'm fine with that.) Of course these final few days it's now my TOM. Oh well!!

    Weight Loss in June……………….. 3.1 lbs
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..3.1 lbs.


    Day 23 – 07/01 …..207.9…..
    Day 24 – 07/02 …..208.0….. A normal fluctuation because yesterday was a pretty good day although I could still tighten my belt some if I had a minute.
    Day 25 – 07 /03 …..207.9…..No time, even for a quick chat. I seriously need to plan & log because I am burning calories but likely eating too many too. And those carbs……
    Day 26 – 07/04 …..207.9…..
    Day 27 – 07/05 …..207.8….I suppose I should be grateful : /
    Day 28 – 07/06 …..207.5….. Some things went right, some things went wrong during this holiday weekend, but when the good outweighs the bad it’s a bit of progress. I hope to have things slow down a tiny bit this week and be able to focus more on logging and food prep. Only I can make the changes that need to be made and do so Consistently. Everyone is doing fantastic. Let’s keep up the good fight!
    Day 29 – 07/07 …..208.6….. One small cheeseburger and BAM!!! I think it’s salt and water retention. Let us hope……
    Day 30 – 07/08…..208.4….. Hopefully losing this water retention but I am not peeing very much (sorry for TMI) so I have to wonder….. Of course, there is all the sweat from the heat and no AC. Anyway, just happy for a small drop on the scale. @dawnbgethealthy I hope things are going well with your job and being back to work. My best to you…..
    Day 31 – 07/09 …..208.4….. Status Quo
    Day 32 – 07 /10 …..209.0….. Feeling inspired today by you all. I will make today a good day, one day at a time!
    Day 33 – 07/11 …..209.8….. I did everything right and the scale just ignored that fact. It’s okay……I don’t give up that easily!
    Day 34 – 07/12 …..209.6…..Not exactly happy but at least its back in the right direction.
    Day 35 – 07/13 …..209.6…..
    Day 36 – 07/14 …..209.6…..Much ado about nothing!
    Day 37 – 07/15 …..209.6….. Wow, really on the hamster wheel here.
    Day 38 – 07 /16 …..210.1….. Going thru some life-altering things right now. Most of it surprising and unexpected on so many levels. I am not able to follow thru on everything I wanted to accomplish. The rest of this year will prove to be challenging in my time and efforts but I will hang in here, be inspired, and do what I can whenever I can. I know it won’t be 100%, there is honestly nothing I can do about that right now. But I will give it every percent I can, when I can. Thanks for your patience folks. You are all my greatest of inspirations. #notgivingup
    Day 39 – 07 /17 …..210.0…..Dizzy with stress all day. I don’t mean the normal stresses we all must endure on the daily. This is the bad stuff but I am coping. Diet was off today pretty bad but I actually got in more deliberate movement. Changing what I can when I can, that is the best any of us can hope for. Tonight I am going to go for some “me” time.
    Day 40 – 07/18 …..210.0…..


    Day 41 – 07 /19…..210.1…..
    Day 42 – 07/20 …..210.0….. Flipping & Flopping. Not overeating but eating the “wrong things” for sure. Fair calories but higher carbs.
    Day 43 – 07/21 …..210.0….. You guys are all slaying it. Hopefully my turn soon. Just gotta make the changes consistently and not let so much get in the way!
    Day 44 – 07/22 …..210.1….. like a teeter-totter
    Day 45 – 07/23 …..210.0…..
    Day 46 – 07/24 …..210.0…..
    Day 47 – 07/25 …..210.0…..
    Day 48 – 07/26 …..210.0…..Holding my own, I suppose. While I can’t exactly focus or fully commit during this time, I realize that even small changes can help. I’ve been doing that when possible and I am happy there is no gain.
    Day 49 – 07/27 …..210.2….. likely a fluctuation or a bit of water retention. Diet was average yesterday. No reason for a gain.
    Day 50 – 07 /28 …..209.8….. I am pretty sure they are going to put my loving cat to sleep today. I am a wreck. Weight drop on the scale because I can’t eat right now. Vet appointment at 3:00 .
    Day 51 – 07/29 …..208.1….. She was put down at 3:30. Obviously couldn’t eat yesterday. They say time heals all wounds and I know it will get better. I’ve been down this road before. Right now, however, it feels like it will never get any easier.
    Day 52 – 07/30…..209.2….. Thanks ladies for you comforting words. I am going to try to focus more on my quality of eating in the coming days. My quantities are okay, it’s the choices I am making. Goal: To get back on track asap although there is still so much going on in my life that I cannot control right now. The coming months will continue to be dreadful but I will do what I can, when I can. Every choices counts.
    Day 53 – 07 /31 …..209.4….. I think this is a correction. OMAD today. I will have a small snack tonight. I was pretty upset all day thinking about my Reeces. As time passes, I know it will get easier. In the meantime, more water and better choices are what is on the menu!

    Weight Loss in July……………….. 1.5 lb GAIN
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 lb Loss



    Day 54 – 08/01 …..209.4…..
    Day 55 – 08/02…..209.9….. Chocolate.
    Day 56 – 08/03 …..209.8….. Much deserved bloating and tummy aches. I hope it will resolve itself today.
    Day 57 – 08/04 …..209.8…..
    Day 58 – 08/05 …..209.8….. Hovering…..
    Day 59 – 08/06…..209.8…..
    Day 60 – 08/07 …..209.6……Finally a small bit of improvement!
    Day 61 – 08/08 .….209.8……Thai food with rice. Hopefully this small increase is sodium related and temporary.
    Day 62 – 08/09 …..209.8……
    Day 63 – 08/10 …..209.5…… Love this drop on the scale this morning! I wish I could say I was 100% back on track but it would be a lie. I did burn many many calories yesterday with my normal Sunday work cleaning tourist cabins and had little time to eat so the calories were down. But my nighttime efforts of avoiding the junk food or bad quick foods paid off. It would be nice if I could pick up the ball and run with it today. I will try but today is scheduled to be stressful day #1 of many more stressful days to come. Some of the things I’m going thru and really starting to progress and take hold. Focus….Focus….Focus……
    Day 64 – 08/11 …..209.5……
    Day 65 – 08/12 …..209.7……
    Day 66 – 08/13 …..209.6…… My whole world is turned upside down so I am happy just to be maintaining from day to day. Things will eventually get better!
    Day 67 – 08/14 …..209.6…… I appreciate all the kind and thoughtful words. Thanks everyone.
    Day 68 – 08/15 …..209.6……
    Day 69 – 08/16 …..209.5……
    Day 70 –08 /17 …..209.3…… I picked up my kitty’s ashes today. It was rough but she is with me again and that’s all I can cling to. Not much appetite. Yesterday was a more careful day and it showed up on the scale this morning. Trying as hard as I can, whenever I can. My situations won’t last forever.
    Day 71 –08 /18 …..209.4…… A slight fluctuation. Yesterday was a bit of a low calorie day.
    Day 72 – 08/19 …..209.6…… Grrr….
    Day 73 – 08/20 …..209.5…… Just bouncing around in what appears to be Maintenance. A long road ahead.
    Day 74 –08 /21 …..209.2…… A nice way to start the weekend!
    Day 75 – 08/22 …..209.3…… Just a normal fluctuation. Things went well yesterday although I could have used a bit more exercise/movement.
    Day 76 –08 /23 …..209.3…… Holding my own I suppose. Today will be a busy day so extra calorie burn is what is on the menu for me.
    Day 77 –08 /24 …..209.3…… Poured the rain yesterday so not as much exercise as planned. Cooked a wonderful “diet dinner” but found myself way too hungry last night. Stuck to some lean cuisine at midnight. Low calorie but was like having a second dinner. My bigger fatter me is not like the smaller quantities I was eating before. I’ve got to re-train on portion control.
    Day 78 – 08/25 …..210.5…… 1 ½ slices of pizza and WHAM!
    Day 79 - 08/26 …..210.2…..
    Day 80 –08 /27 …..210.2 …… no change. Out of town today. Tomorrow the scale will probably be up.
    Day 81 – 08/28 …..210.7…… After travel. Ugg!
    Day 82 – 08/29…..211.4…… Still creeping up from travel because yesterday was actually a pretty good day. However, I did not get to the fitness marshall video yet. Will try to aim for it again today. Weekends are tough to try to have a few private moments here at the motel. Phones galore and someone always at the desk interrupting everything from exercise, to meals, even potty. I’m a one-man show since my hubby passed away. We shall see how today goes.
    Day 83 –08 /30 …..210.9…… Yesterday went well with the diet although still no time for zumba. Too tired to do it late at night last night. Hopefully soon! Scale down due to a strict diet yesterday. However, emergency travel today for a tv replacement for son. Over 5 hours total just in driving time. Ate at Applebee’s. I ordered the grilled lime chicken but I expect a jump on the scale due to the rice, even though I didn’t finish the rice. Carbs are my enemy.
    Day 84 – 08/31 …..211.1…… The after travel weight gain a bit less than I expected so I am okay with this. Picnic today but I will pack healthy stuff and fit in a short hike along the river as long as the plans aren’t cancelled.

    Weight GAIN in August……………….. 1.7 pound GAIN
    Total Accumulated Weight GAIN….. 0.1 lb gain. Getting nowhere.



    Day 85 –09/01 …..211.6…… Well there is the expected bump from after travel x2 this week. Because I have not been watching carbs like I should, that it actually a small gain. When deep into the carb counting, one travel day can cost me 3-5 pounds so I am actually pleased with this number. But it’s in the wrong direction, so I’ve got to get back on track!
    Day 86 – 09/02 …..211.6…… At this point, I am just focusing at getting this under my challenge starting weight. Gaining per 100 days is not an option!
    Day 87 – 09/03 …..211.2…… Truthfully, peed a lot yesterday. I guess I was losing water from restaurant/travel retention.
    Day 88 –09 /04 …..211.3……
    Day 89 – 09/05…..211.2……
    Day 90 – 09/06…..211.2……
    Day 91 – 09/07 …..211.8…..Pizza. I hope to burn it off today with a heavy work day scheduled.
    Day 92 – 09/08 …..211.6……Lots of work yesterday but also I made a trip to the campground to see my grandson enjoy nature. A cheeseburger and chips for dinner which is not what I usually plan, but all is good. Weight still working its way back down.
    Day 93 – 09/09 …..211.4…… Some travel yesterday and a restaurant meal, but I kept it in check and did not over-indulge. I hope for some clean eating today. I have a heavy schedule which includes 3 hair appointments for son & 2 DGS' which always include a restaurant meal out, but I plan on sustaining and eating my dinner at home in a more controlled atmosphere. I don't need restaurant food two days in a row or the water retention that comes with it!
    Day 94 – 09/10 …..211.4……
    Day 95 – 09/11 …..212.2……
    Day 96 – 09/12 …..211.6……Finally able to get back onto MFP communities. They must have fixed the glitch!
    Day 97 – 09/13 …..212.6…… I know why.
    Day 98 – 09/14 …..211.6……Okay, back in business. I kept carbs a bit lower yesterday. No incidents with my glucose even with the lower carbs so that was good. Lots of stress here today, I will be working hard on not eating my emotions. I would like to get under my 211.0 starting weight, even just a smidgen, to maintain my self-respect and to point me in the right direction for the next round.
    Day 99 –09 /15 …..xxxxx……
    Day 100 – 09/16 (Final Weight In)……xxxxx……

    This will be my 3rd round.
    I like to weigh every day to keep me accountable - knowing that I will be weighing in the morning sometimes stops me from continuing to eat at night : - )
    My name is Dawn. 59 year old female. I was 5'3" but think that I am 5'2" now. Broca Index says that I should be 112.8 pounds.
    I live in South East British Columbia Canada
    MFP start date October 29.18 - SW 191
    This round start weight: 151.2 - June 09.20
    Ultimate goal weight - 112 - 115

    My previous 2 rounds:

    My first round of this was round #3:
    Day 1 November 22.19 158.1
    Day 100 February 29.20 - 154.4
    Total loss over 100 days 3.7 pounds

    This last one, #4:
    Day 1 March 01.20 - 154.4
    Day 100 June 08.20 - 151.7 - 2.7 pound loss
    Total loss over 100 days 2.7 pounds

    200 days = 6.4 pounds lost. Sloooowwww

    I am going to keep track of my leftover calories this time, based on 1200 calories consumed per day.

    Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10, 11,12 and 13

    Day 1: Tues, 6/9 - 151.2 - 607 calories leftover in the tracker (Green)
    Day 2: Wed, 6/10 - 149.9 - Yippee Yahoo to touch the 140s, even if only slightly. - 1278 leftover in the tracker (Green)
    Day 3: Thurs, 6/11 - 150.1 - 14 calories leftover in the tracker
    Day 4: Fri, 6/12 - 153.4 - Had a cheat meal (Asian Sesame Ribs) last night and it was delicious. I try to have Ribs only once per month or less because of the weight gain. I must have drank 2 litres of water or more afterwards because they were salty, that adds to the high weight this morning. I don't expect my weight to be so high tomorrow, I will keep my calories low today. 910 calories left over
    Day 5: Sat, 6/13: 153.2 - Well, it comes off much slower than it goes on as we know! In the green always even if small, but to lose I need at least 500 calories per day in the green. 104 Calories left over

    1st Week Goal Weight: 150.2
    1st Week Actual Weight: 153.2 - Gain of 2 pounds in 5 days. Hoping for a woosh to start the next one.
    Excess calories burned: 2913 - Not enough to burn a pound, but still more than enough to not gain 2 pounds!


    Day 6: Sun, 6/14 - 152.9 - This was my first full workout in a few days since I dropped a piece of concrete on my toes. 776 leftover in the tracker (Green).
    Day 7: Mon, 6/15 - 150.9 - Good, now to get back to that 149.9. 846 excess calories left over.
    Day 8: Tues, 6/16 - 151.0 - Below day 1 slightly, so that is good, but really working for some progress this week. 1354 left over in the tracker.
    Day 9: Wed, 6/17: - 150.2 - Burned lots of calories yesterday, struggled to get enough calories in for a change. Jello and cookies was my silly solution. 800 calories left over
    Day 10: Thurs, 6/18 - 150.2 - Hope to see a small drop tomorrow morning. 773 left over in the tracker (green)
    Day 11: Fri, 6/19: - 150.3 - Hmm, small gain, not sure why. Going to try to delay my cheat day (Rib Eye) since there is only one more weigh in for this week. It is in the freezer, I will have it another day. 176 calories left over
    Day 12: Sat, 6/20: - 150.6 - I had a Samosa and a Chimichanga last night. 571 left over in the tracker

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 149.9 - I know that this sounds ambitious, but my average (even with the high days) was 151.5
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 150.6 - 0.8 down from Day 1 (12 days)
    Excess calories burned, Green showing in the tracker as left over - 5296 calories

    Day 13: Sun, 6/21: - 150.6 - Missed the weigh in today, going with yesterday's weight. 1045 cal left over in the tracker
    Day 14: Mon, 6/22: - 152.0 - Ouch. Makes no sense. 926 cal left over in the tracker.
    Day 15: Tues, 6/23: 151.6 - Super frustrated. I work so hard at this! 608 calories left in the tracker
    Day 16: Wed, 6/24: - 151.6 - I don't get it, right on point. Still above day 1!! 909 calories left over in the tracker (green)
    Day 17: Thurs, 6/25: 150.7 - Peed like 40 times yesterday, guessing that it was trapped water? I had been working out in the hot sun every day since Monday, and yesterday it rained. Perhaps my body was holding on to the water because of the heat? 744 calories left over in the tracker.
    Day 18: Fri, 6/26: 150.1 - Good. Still a slight chance at hitting the weekly goal weight, but that is 1/2 a pound which normally takes me 2 weeks to lose. We'll see tomorrow. 1531 calories left over
    Day 19: Sat, 6/27: 150.0 - I am happy with this, super ready to get into the 140s - and stay there, I have touched them twice. 1676 calories left over
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 149.6
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 150.0
    Excess calories burned, Green showing in the tracker as left over: 7439 calories left over, which should equal 2+ pounds, but only in reality netted me a 0.6 pound loss. Very cruel, I am working very hard at this.

    Day 20: Sun, 6/28: - 149.3 - Tending not to believe this number, I mean, I like it, but I slept in today so got a lower number than I probably would have. Still great to touch this number for the first time! 875 calories left over.
    Day 21: Mon, 6/29: - 148.7 - New low! Maybe all of those excess calories burned are now showing up. Hoping that this is not just a fluctuation : - ) 1503 Calories left over
    Day 22: Tues, 6/30: - 148.1 - Last weeks excess calorie burn must be kicking in to this slow old metabolism! 714 calories left over

    Excess calories burned in June: 25,437, but this includes the entire month and we started this round on the 6th. 7.267 pounds mathematically that I should have lost for the entire month. (3500 calories equals a pound)
    The number not counting the 1st to the 5th is 21,658. 6.188 pounds mathematically I should have lost in 24 days.
    Weight Loss in June - 3.1 pounds - so much better than my usual 1 pound loss per month.

    Day 23: Wed, 7/1: 148.4 - 1053 calories left over
    Day 24: Thurs, 7/2: 149.4 - I didn't do anything to gain a pound in a day. Hoping that it is just a fluctuation. I never want to visit the 150s again, I was there for a long time.
    Day 25: Fri, 7/3: 149.2. I'll take it. Day off today, so lots of extra workouts here and there, healthy food. 1171 excess calories burned
    Day 26: Sat, 7/4: 149.1 - 332 excess calories burned
    4th Week Goal Weight: 148.3
    4th Week Actual Weight: 149.1
    Excess calories burned: 6634 - Should have amounted to an almost 2 pound loss, but somehow I gained.

    Day 27: Sun, 7/5: 149.1 - This could go up over the next few days, I partied yesterday. Hoping not and I will try to work out extra today. 1120 calories left over in the tracker - ate 1200
    Day 28: Mon, 7/6: 149.3 - Could have been worse from Saturday, mitigated it. Another one of my jobs has lifted lay-off, so my time for working out will not be as much soon, I will try to keep it up though. 1598 calories left over
    Day 29: Tues, 7/7: 149.1 - Major calorie burn yesterday, including lots of Zumba and yardwork, burned off more than I ate for the second day in a row. Hoping for a drop soon. 658 calories left over.
    Day 30: Wed, 7/8: 149.4 - High calorie burn days will be over for me now except for weekends now that I am back to work. 322 calories left over.
    Day 31: Thurs, 7/9: 148.4 - Very surprised at this, I worked extremely late and didn't get lunch/dinner until 10:30 at night. Sleeping in always gives me a good number. 785 calories left over
    Day 32: Fri, 7/10: 148.7 - I was so late in from work last night that I didn't finish lunch/dinner until 11:30!! Too late to be eating. Maybe it really does boil down to calories in calories out no matter what time of day that happens? I definitely get better results on the scale if I am 12 hours in between my last mouthful and weighing the next day. Working from home today instead of out in the field, so it should be better. 472 cal left over
    Day 33: Sat, 7/11: 148.8 138 calories left over
    5th Week Goal Weight: 148.1
    5th Week Actual Weight: 148.8 - Down 0.3 of a pound, had hoped for more, but better than gaining.
    5th Week Excess calories burned (Green in the tracker leftover) 4535 - so should have lost at least a pound

    Day 34: Sun, 7/12: Weighed at 4am instead of 9am, so will use my tomorrow weight as my week start weight. Ended at 148.8 for week 5. 886 calories left over.
    Day 35: Mon, 7/13: 149.1 That seems not right. 1,004 calories left over
    Day 36: Tues, 7/14: 148.7 - Weighing daily drives accountability, but there is also that fluctuation thing to deal with which can be a bit hurtful at times. I feel normalized today. 545 calories left over
    Day 37: Wed, 7/15: 148.4 - Still adjusting to going back to work, I don't eat or exercise like I was. 832 calories left over
    Day 38: Thurs, 7/16: 148.3 - Sloooowwww Took the day off of work, so less stressed and more time to work out. 1222 calories left over
    Day 39: Fri, 7/17: 148.3 - I had really expected a drop for this morning's weigh in, but nope. End of week weigh in tomorrow will keep me "good" I hope. 459 calories left over
    Day 40: Sat, 7/18: 148.1 - Somehow down 0.6lb. I ate "out" last night and I normally see at least a 2 pound gain when I do that. Hoping that it doesn't catch up with me. I was active, but also ate more than usual, so only 58 calories leftover.
    6th Week Goal Weight: 148.1
    6th Week Actual Weight: 148.1
    Excess calories burned: 5,006
    Day 41: Sun, 7/19: 148.5 - I ate and drank outside of my normal box this weekend including cheeseburger pizza (kept it to one slice), Wings, cocktails, chips...etc. Definitely grinding that to a halt immediately. Lucky to have only gained 0.4 of a pound. 919 calories left over
    Day 42: Mon, 7/20: 149.8 - There is the rest of the gain from the weekend. I cut right back starting yesterday, but the gain took a couple of days to show, and the loss won't happen overnight either. 281 calories left over
    Day 43: Tues, 7/21: 147.4 - Lowest ever! Very happy to see this number. 650 calories left over
    Day 44: Wed, 7/22: 147.0 - Happily surprised, almost didn't believe the low number, hoping that it is not a fluke. Tracking, measuring portions, working out...keeping it the same. 738 calories left over
    Day 45: Thurs, 7/23: 146.1 - So are all of those excess calories burned month after month just now catching up? I haven't changed anything at all. Maybe this heatwave is sweating the fat off of me. 30 calories left over
    Day 46: Fri, 7/24: 146.8 - This could go higher, I had my monthly Ribs feed last night. Kind of worth it, I will be more strict now. 667 calories left over
    Day 47: Sat, 7/25: 147.7 - So I looked at my pedometre and my weight was still entered as 178.1 so I wasn't burning as many calories walking as I had thought, although I don't walk often, especially in the heat. 321 calories left over
    7th Week Goal Weight: 147.1

    Day 51: Wed, 7/29: 145.6 - New low due to going back to bed for 2 hours early this morning. Nice number, I hope to see it again! 819 calories left over.
    Day 52: Thurs, 7/30: 144.5 - Almost unbelievable. Another case of going back to bed for 2 hours. Back in February I was ice skating every day and had 27,000 calories burned in excess, yet still only lost 1 pound instead of 7.71lbs. Maybe it is finally all kicking in with my old slow metabolism? Who knows. I will take it. The weekend will be a challenge, many bbqs and cocktails planned, so going into it with a bit of a buffer will be great. Feeling firmly into the 140s now, need to keep it there...until I can get into the 130s of course. 433 excess calories burned
    Day 53: Fri, 7/31: 145.0 - Long weekend here, it is going to be tough to keep on track 600 excess calories burned

    Day 57: Tues, 8/4: 146.4 - So happy that there are still a good variety of local berries and cherries this time of year. It makes breakfasts healthier, quick, and low calorie. 508 calories left over in the tracker.
    Day 58: Wed, 8/5: 145.8 - These weeks are going by fast, the summer is going by fast! 312 calories left over.

    Day 60: Fri, 8/7: 147.1 - Ouch! Hoping that it is a glitch and that I end this "week" better than that. Input and Output were on point. 767 calories left over
    Day 61: Sat, 8/8: 145.8
    9th Week Goal Weight: 145.7 - This sounds aggressive because of my poor start to the week, but I hit 144.5 in last week, week 8

    Day 65: Wed, 8/12: 145.6 - Burned almost as much as I ate yesterday! Full workout planned for today, 25 minutes of Zumba (Hip Hop Fitness Marshall) to loosen up and stretch the whole body, then 35 minutes of HIIT with weights (Heather Robinson I think). 40 seconds on, 20 seconds off. Primarily working from home today and will be doing a very long day in the field tomorrow. 3 days until our weigh-in for this week. I am trying really hard lol. 1343 calories left over!
    Day 66: Thurs, 8/13: 145.1 - Trying to lose 0.3 over the next few days. Working at it. 898 calories left over
    Day 67: Fri, 8/14: 144.9 - Yay. I have been burning a lot of extra calories this week including cutting the grass and stuff like that on top of my workouts. Keeping my eating calories low. Today my diet changes for at least a month, my first tomatoes are ripening and the rest will follow. Planning on a Tomato sandwich every single day with lots of mayo (1/2 fat Hellman's) and some sort of protein like bacon, ham, eggs. I will cut back elsewhere : - ) 132 calories left over

    Day 70: Mon, 8/17: 144.4 - Slept in, so got a great number. Also peed like 100 times yesterday, so must have had some trapped fluid. 582 calories left over
    Day 71: Tues, 8/18: 143.2 - This number makes me motivated to continue to make weight loss my priority. My goal all year was to be into the 130s by my 60th birthday which is now in a month. I am starting to feel like I can get there even though I usually lose extremely slowly. Great way to start my day! 705 calories left over
    Day 72: Wed, 8/19: 143.2 - So great to see this number again. I have a long way to go still, but would be very happy if this is my new set point. 315 calories left over.

    Day 82: Sat, 8/29: 144.1 - I gained 0.2 total for this week, which I suppose could have been worse if I didn't pull it out on the last day.

    Day 88: Fri, 9/4: 142.3 - The more deficit that I can create with extra calorie burn seems to work for me! If I can stay focused I am on track to lose 10 pounds this 100 which would be super duper.

    Day 93: Wed, 9/9: 143.6 - Pizza last night, so up in weight this morning. 752 calories left over
    Day 94: Thurs, 9/10: 143.9 - Still showing the effects of my homemade naan pizza. I worked out extra yesterday, hoping to see some better results tomorrow. Only 6 more days left of the 100!! Definitely striving for a 10 pound loss this 100, but 2.8 more pounds seems unreasonable in 6 days. Going to try anyway. 716 calories left over
    Day 95: Fri, 9/11: 142.0 - Yippee Yahoo! Hard work indeed, but I want this. 445 calories left over
    Day 96: Sat, 9/12: 142.0 - Going to try for a deficit of 500 calories today, weekend, time for extra workouts/activities. 673 calories left over
    14th Week Goal Weight: 141.2
    14th Week Actual Weight: 142.0
    Excess calories burned: 4066 - enough to lose a pound.

    Day 97: Sun, 9/13: 142.9 - Ow, gain 0.9 in one day and to lose 0.9 can take 2 weeks. Hoping that it is just a fluctuation. Worked out lots - 982 calories left over
    Day 98: Mon, 9/14: 142.7 - Of course would have liked to see it lower, still above my 14th week EW. 672
    Day 99: Tues, 9/15: 142.4 - On track to lose more weight than my previous 2 rounds of 100. Keeping track of and working towards my deficit each day seems to be working for me.
    Day 100: Wed, 9/16:

    15th Week Goal Weight: 141.2 - Because this would be a 10 pound loss for the 100. Unreasonable maybe with only 1 day left.
    15th Week Actual Weight:

    8th Week Actual Weight: 162.8 (These past 2 weeks have been more aggressive and it shows. While I transition into something not so aggressive the next few weeks, we'll see what happens, but of course, I am happy and want to keep this momentum up! It's been a LOOOONG TIME since I've been in the 150s, so that's what I'm currently striving for!

    Day 64: Tues, 8/11: 163.8 (I love the week before TOM! lol)
    Day 65: Wed, 8/12: 164.6 (I'm going to attribute this to week before TOM and the new heavy lifting routine I've been doing and *crossing fingers* hope it's muscle haha! I'm not going to worry too much about the numbers just yet as I've been still within my goals!)
    Day 66: Thurs, 8/13: 164
    Day 67: Fri, 8/14: 163.8
    Day 68: Sat, 8/15: 164.6 (Ate crappy, but that's because my daughter is here and that's okay! I'll go back to normal on Monday, but for now, we are enjoying our time together. I mean I'm not eating TOO bad, but definitely different than my norm and it will definitely show on my weigh in day. But the good thing is that we've been very active and I'm still getting my workouts in somehow!)

    10th Week Goal Weight: 162
    10th Week Actual Weight: 164.6

    Day 69: Sun, 8/16: 166 (Ouch, that is scary looking, but I'm not going to let it get to me. Today is my last day with my daughter and tomorrow is a new day, plus TOM is next week as well. I've still been active, but haven't been able to do my strength training. All back to normal tomorrow. We are having a great time together and that's more important to me than numbers right now!)
    Day 70: Mon, 8/17: 166.6 (Weigh-In Day) (+3.8 since last week) - (As awful as this looks, I'm not letting this get to me. I just dropped my daughter off at the airport and we had a wonderful time together! Today I will be back to my regular schedule and will work hard to get this off. I know what I need to do. Also this week is TOM so we'll see what happens!)
    Day 71: Tues, 8/18: 165.6 (Back on track with my workouts and eating schedule. Strength training yesterday was tough though.)
    Day 72: Wed, 8/19: 164.6 (It's weird how each day fluctuates so much, but that's just how it is!)
    Day 73: Thurs, 8/20: 162.4 (Lol, I don't understand this at all, but whatever!)
    Day 74: Fri, 8/21: 161.6 (I guess all that good food I ate, while not immense was just salty?? Still so strange!)
    Day 75: Sat, 8/22: 161.2

    11th Week Goal Weight: 164
    11th Week Actual Weight: 161.2

    Day 76: Sun, 8/23: 161.2
    Day 77: Mon, 8/24: 161.2 (Weigh-In Day -5.4 lbs since last week) (So glad this stuck! I lost the weight I gained plus an extra 1.6 lbs to bring me back to where I needed to be)
    Day 78: Tues, 8/25: 160.6 (I wasn't hungry last night after my workout and after my protein shake. I still had quite a bit to go and I struggled to make my macros. I still did fairly well, but still didn't reach them. Maybe I should eat more at lunch just in case.)
    Day 79: Wed, 8/26: 160.2
    Day 80: Thurs, 8/27: 160.4
    Day 81: Fri, 8/28: 159.8 (I haven't seen the 150s in 4 years. I'm not going to be TOO happy yet, since weight fluctuates daily, but it's still so nice to see!)
    Day 82: Sat, 8/29: 160.2

    12th Week Goal Weight: 160
    12th Week Actual Weight: 160.2 (I'm happy with this! Gotta keep it up!)

    Day 83: Sun, 8/30: 159.4
    Day 84: Mon, 8/31: 160.4 (Weigh-In Day; -.8 lbs since last week. I'm happy with whatever I can get!)
    Day 85: Tues, 9/1: 161.2 (I'm a bit off this week for some reason. I'm trying so hard to get at least 7 hours of sleep, but I only get 5-6. That's probably my biggest struggle. I need my body to fully rest, so I can keep going. I woke up with a cramp in my calf, so I didn't want to get up to work out, so I gotta try after work.
    Day 86: Wed, 9/2: 161.2 (sorta back on track today with my morning workout. I just wish I could sleep more than 6 hours!)
    Day 87: Thurs, 9/3: 161 (Just came back from a 3 mile trail walk with my doggy. It was great!)
    Day 88: Fri, 9/4: 161 (Admittedly this week I haven't been 100% following my macros, but I am still under my calorie goals. But I feel so much better sticking to my macros, so gotta get back to it!)
    Day 89: Sat, 9/5: 160.4 (Trying to get back to the 150s and stay there - this week has been tough, but happy where it's ended thus far.)

    13th Week Goal Weight: 158
    13th Week Actual Weight: 160.4
    Day 90: Sun, 9/6: 160.4
    Day 91: Mon, 9/7: 160.2 (Weigh-In Day; -.2 lbs since last week. Whew! Wasn't sure I was going to lose anything, so I'm happy about this. This week will be much more intense, so we'll see how these final days go. My ultimate goal now for this challenge is to reach 15 lbs lost.)
    Day 92: Tues, 9/8: 161 (Next week is TOM, so I know how this goes and am expecting the gain this week, just gotta remember the loss that comes with it!)
    Day 93: Wed, 9/9: 161
    Day 94: Thurs, 9/10: 160.8
    Day 95: Fri, 9/11: 160.2

    Day 97: Sun, 9/13: 159.8
    Day 98: Mon, 9/14: 160.2 (Weigh-In Day; 0 lbs lost since last week. So maintained. I'm fine with that.) Of course these final few days it's now my TOM. Oh well!!

    Weight Loss in June……………….. 3.1 lbs
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..3.1 lbs.


    Day 23 – 07/01 …..207.9…..
    Day 24 – 07/02 …..208.0….. A normal fluctuation because yesterday was a pretty good day although I could still tighten my belt some if I had a minute.
    Day 25 – 07 /03 …..207.9…..No time, even for a quick chat. I seriously need to plan & log because I am burning calories but likely eating too many too. And those carbs……
    Day 26 – 07/04 …..207.9…..
    Day 27 – 07/05 …..207.8….I suppose I should be grateful : /
    Day 28 – 07/06 …..207.5….. Some things went right, some things went wrong during this holiday weekend, but when the good outweighs the bad it’s a bit of progress. I hope to have things slow down a tiny bit this week and be able to focus more on logging and food prep. Only I can make the changes that need to be made and do so Consistently. Everyone is doing fantastic. Let’s keep up the good fight!
    Day 29 – 07/07 …..208.6….. One small cheeseburger and BAM!!! I think it’s salt and water retention. Let us hope……
    Day 30 – 07/08…..208.4….. Hopefully losing this water retention but I am not peeing very much (sorry for TMI) so I have to wonder….. Of course, there is all the sweat from the heat and no AC. Anyway, just happy for a small drop on the scale. @dawnbgethealthy I hope things are going well with your job and being back to work. My best to you…..
    Day 31 – 07/09 …..208.4….. Status Quo
    Day 32 – 07 /10 …..209.0….. Feeling inspired today by you all. I will make today a good day, one day at a time!
    Day 33 – 07/11 …..209.8….. I did everything right and the scale just ignored that fact. It’s okay……I don’t give up that easily!
    Day 34 – 07/12 …..209.6…..Not exactly happy but at least its back in the right direction.
    Day 35 – 07/13 …..209.6…..
    Day 36 – 07/14 …..209.6…..Much ado about nothing!
    Day 37 – 07/15 …..209.6….. Wow, really on the hamster wheel here.
    Day 38 – 07 /16 …..210.1….. Going thru some life-altering things right now. Most of it surprising and unexpected on so many levels. I am not able to follow thru on everything I wanted to accomplish. The rest of this year will prove to be challenging in my time and efforts but I will hang in here, be inspired, and do what I can whenever I can. I know it won’t be 100%, there is honestly nothing I can do about that right now. But I will give it every percent I can, when I can. Thanks for your patience folks. You are all my greatest of inspirations. #notgivingup
    Day 39 – 07 /17 …..210.0…..Dizzy with stress all day. I don’t mean the normal stresses we all must endure on the daily. This is the bad stuff but I am coping. Diet was off today pretty bad but I actually got in more deliberate movement. Changing what I can when I can, that is the best any of us can hope for. Tonight I am going to go for some “me” time.
    Day 40 – 07/18 …..210.0…..


    Day 41 – 07 /19…..210.1…..
    Day 42 – 07/20 …..210.0….. Flipping & Flopping. Not overeating but eating the “wrong things” for sure. Fair calories but higher carbs.
    Day 43 – 07/21 …..210.0….. You guys are all slaying it. Hopefully my turn soon. Just gotta make the changes consistently and not let so much get in the way!
    Day 44 – 07/22 …..210.1….. like a teeter-totter
    Day 45 – 07/23 …..210.0…..
    Day 46 – 07/24 …..210.0…..
    Day 47 – 07/25 …..210.0…..
    Day 48 – 07/26 …..210.0…..Holding my own, I suppose. While I can’t exactly focus or fully commit during this time, I realize that even small changes can help. I’ve been doing that when possible and I am happy there is no gain.
    Day 49 – 07/27 …..210.2….. likely a fluctuation or a bit of water retention. Diet was average yesterday. No reason for a gain.
    Day 50 – 07 /28 …..209.8….. I am pretty sure they are going to put my loving cat to sleep today. I am a wreck. Weight drop on the scale because I can’t eat right now. Vet appointment at 3:00 .
    Day 51 – 07/29 …..208.1….. She was put down at 3:30. Obviously couldn’t eat yesterday. They say time heals all wounds and I know it will get better. I’ve been down this road before. Right now, however, it feels like it will never get any easier.
    Day 52 – 07/30…..209.2….. Thanks ladies for you comforting words. I am going to try to focus more on my quality of eating in the coming days. My quantities are okay, it’s the choices I am making. Goal: To get back on track asap although there is still so much going on in my life that I cannot control right now. The coming months will continue to be dreadful but I will do what I can, when I can. Every choices counts.
    Day 53 – 07 /31 …..209.4….. I think this is a correction. OMAD today. I will have a small snack tonight. I was pretty upset all day thinking about my Reeces. As time passes, I know it will get easier. In the meantime, more water and better choices are what is on the menu!

    Weight Loss in July……………….. 1.5 lb GAIN
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 lb Loss



    Day 54 – 08/01 …..209.4…..
    Day 55 – 08/02…..209.9….. Chocolate.
    Day 56 – 08/03 …..209.8….. Much deserved bloating and tummy aches. I hope it will resolve itself today.
    Day 57 – 08/04 …..209.8…..
    Day 58 – 08/05 …..209.8….. Hovering…..
    Day 59 – 08/06…..209.8…..
    Day 60 – 08/07 …..209.6……Finally a small bit of improvement!
    Day 61 – 08/08 .….209.8……Thai food with rice. Hopefully this small increase is sodium related and temporary.
    Day 62 – 08/09 …..209.8……
    Day 63 – 08/10 …..209.5…… Love this drop on the scale this morning! I wish I could say I was 100% back on track but it would be a lie. I did burn many many calories yesterday with my normal Sunday work cleaning tourist cabins and had little time to eat so the calories were down. But my nighttime efforts of avoiding the junk food or bad quick foods paid off. It would be nice if I could pick up the ball and run with it today. I will try but today is scheduled to be stressful day #1 of many more stressful days to come. Some of the things I’m going thru and really starting to progress and take hold. Focus….Focus….Focus……
    Day 64 – 08/11 …..209.5……
    Day 65 – 08/12 …..209.7……
    Day 66 – 08/13 …..209.6…… My whole world is turned upside down so I am happy just to be maintaining from day to day. Things will eventually get better!
    Day 67 – 08/14 …..209.6…… I appreciate all the kind and thoughtful words. Thanks everyone.
    Day 68 – 08/15 …..209.6……
    Day 69 – 08/16 …..209.5……
    Day 70 –08 /17 …..209.3…… I picked up my kitty’s ashes today. It was rough but she is with me again and that’s all I can cling to. Not much appetite. Yesterday was a more careful day and it showed up on the scale this morning. Trying as hard as I can, whenever I can. My situations won’t last forever.
    Day 71 –08 /18 …..209.4…… A slight fluctuation. Yesterday was a bit of a low calorie day.
    Day 72 – 08/19 …..209.6…… Grrr….
    Day 73 – 08/20 …..209.5…… Just bouncing around in what appears to be Maintenance. A long road ahead.
    Day 74 –08 /21 …..209.2…… A nice way to start the weekend!
    Day 75 – 08/22 …..209.3…… Just a normal fluctuation. Things went well yesterday although I could have used a bit more exercise/movement.
    Day 76 –08 /23 …..209.3…… Holding my own I suppose. Today will be a busy day so extra calorie burn is what is on the menu for me.
    Day 77 –08 /24 …..209.3…… Poured the rain yesterday so not as much exercise as planned. Cooked a wonderful “diet dinner” but found myself way too hungry last night. Stuck to some lean cuisine at midnight. Low calorie but was like having a second dinner. My bigger fatter me is not like the smaller quantities I was eating before. I’ve got to re-train on portion control.
    Day 78 – 08/25 …..210.5…… 1 ½ slices of pizza and WHAM!
    Day 79 - 08/26 …..210.2…..
    Day 80 –08 /27 …..210.2 …… no change. Out of town today. Tomorrow the scale will probably be up.
    Day 81 – 08/28 …..210.7…… After travel. Ugg!
    Day 82 – 08/29…..211.4…… Still creeping up from travel because yesterday was actually a pretty good day. However, I did not get to the fitness marshall video yet. Will try to aim for it again today. Weekends are tough to try to have a few private moments here at the motel. Phones galore and someone always at the desk interrupting everything from exercise, to meals, even potty. I’m a one-man show since my hubby passed away. We shall see how today goes.
    Day 83 –08 /30 …..210.9…… Yesterday went well with the diet although still no time for zumba. Too tired to do it late at night last night. Hopefully soon! Scale down due to a strict diet yesterday. However, emergency travel today for a tv replacement for son. Over 5 hours total just in driving time. Ate at Applebee’s. I ordered the grilled lime chicken but I expect a jump on the scale due to the rice, even though I didn’t finish the rice. Carbs are my enemy.
    Day 84 – 08/31 …..211.1…… The after travel weight gain a bit less than I expected so I am okay with this. Picnic today but I will pack healthy stuff and fit in a short hike along the river as long as the plans aren’t cancelled.

    Weight GAIN in August……………….. 1.7 pound GAIN
    Total Accumulated Weight GAIN….. 0.1 lb gain. Getting nowhere.



    Day 85 –09/01 …..211.6…… Well there is the expected bump from after travel x2 this week. Because I have not been watching carbs like I should, that it actually a small gain. When deep into the carb counting, one travel day can cost me 3-5 pounds so I am actually pleased with this number. But it’s in the wrong direction, so I’ve got to get back on track!
    Day 86 – 09/02 …..211.6…… At this point, I am just focusing at getting this under my challenge starting weight. Gaining per 100 days is not an option!
    Day 87 – 09/03 …..211.2…… Truthfully, peed a lot yesterday. I guess I was losing water from restaurant/travel retention.
    Day 88 –09 /04 …..211.3……
    Day 89 – 09/05…..211.2……
    Day 90 – 09/06…..211.2……
    Day 91 – 09/07 …..211.8…..Pizza. I hope to burn it off today with a heavy work day scheduled.
    Day 92 – 09/08 …..211.6……Lots of work yesterday but also I made a trip to the campground to see my grandson enjoy nature. A cheeseburger and chips for dinner which is not what I usually plan, but all is good. Weight still working its way back down.
    Day 93 – 09/09 …..211.4…… Some travel yesterday and a restaurant meal, but I kept it in check and did not over-indulge. I hope for some clean eating today. I have a heavy schedule which includes 3 hair appointments for son & 2 DGS' which always include a restaurant meal out, but I plan on sustaining and eating my dinner at home in a more controlled atmosphere. I don't need restaurant food two days in a row or the water retention that comes with it!
    Day 94 – 09/10 …..211.4……
    Day 95 – 09/11 …..212.2……
    Day 96 – 09/12 …..211.6……Finally able to get back onto MFP communities. They must have fixed the glitch!
    Day 97 – 09/13 …..212.6…… I know why.
    Day 98 – 09/14 …..211.6……Okay, back in business. I kept carbs a bit lower yesterday. No incidents with my glucose even with the lower carbs so that was good. Lots of stress here today, I will be working hard on not eating my emotions. I would like to get under my 211.0 starting weight, even just a smidgen, to maintain my self-respect and to point me in the right direction for the next round.
    Day 99 –09 /15 …..211.6…… Travelled today. I hope it doesn’t hurt my final weigh-in. It's not always what I eat. Sometimes it's just the lack of movement.
    Day 100 – 09/16 (Final Weight In)……xxxxx……

    Challenge Starting Weight: 211.0
    Challenge Goal: 191.0 (20 pound loss)
    Challenge Ending Weight: xxxxx

    This will be my 3rd round.
    I like to weigh every day to keep me accountable - knowing that I will be weighing in the morning sometimes stops me from continuing to eat at night : - )
    My name is Dawn. 59 year old female. I was 5'3" but think that I am 5'2" now. Broca Index says that I should be 112.8 pounds.
    I live in South East British Columbia Canada
    MFP start date October 29.18 - SW 191
    This round start weight: 151.2 - June 09.20
    Ultimate goal weight - 112 - 115

    My previous 2 rounds:

    My first round of this was round #3:
    Day 1 November 22.19 158.1
    Day 100 February 29.20 - 154.4
    Total loss over 100 days 3.7 pounds

    This last one, #4:
    Day 1 March 01.20 - 154.4
    Day 100 June 08.20 - 151.7 - 2.7 pound loss
    Total loss over 100 days 2.7 pounds

    200 days = 6.4 pounds lost. Sloooowwww

    I am going to keep track of my leftover calories this time, based on 1200 calories consumed per day.

    Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10, 11,12 and 13

    Day 1: Tues, 6/9 - 151.2 - 607 calories leftover in the tracker (Green)
    Day 2: Wed, 6/10 - 149.9 - Yippee Yahoo to touch the 140s, even if only slightly. - 1278 leftover in the tracker (Green)
    Day 3: Thurs, 6/11 - 150.1 - 14 calories leftover in the tracker
    Day 4: Fri, 6/12 - 153.4 - Had a cheat meal (Asian Sesame Ribs) last night and it was delicious. I try to have Ribs only once per month or less because of the weight gain. I must have drank 2 litres of water or more afterwards because they were salty, that adds to the high weight this morning. I don't expect my weight to be so high tomorrow, I will keep my calories low today. 910 calories left over
    Day 5: Sat, 6/13: 153.2 - Well, it comes off much slower than it goes on as we know! In the green always even if small, but to lose I need at least 500 calories per day in the green. 104 Calories left over

    1st Week Goal Weight: 150.2
    1st Week Actual Weight: 153.2 - Gain of 2 pounds in 5 days. Hoping for a woosh to start the next one.
    Excess calories burned: 2913 - Not enough to burn a pound, but still more than enough to not gain 2 pounds!


    Day 6: Sun, 6/14 - 152.9 - This was my first full workout in a few days since I dropped a piece of concrete on my toes. 776 leftover in the tracker (Green).
    Day 7: Mon, 6/15 - 150.9 - Good, now to get back to that 149.9. 846 excess calories left over.
    Day 8: Tues, 6/16 - 151.0 - Below day 1 slightly, so that is good, but really working for some progress this week. 1354 left over in the tracker.
    Day 9: Wed, 6/17: - 150.2 - Burned lots of calories yesterday, struggled to get enough calories in for a change. Jello and cookies was my silly solution. 800 calories left over
    Day 10: Thurs, 6/18 - 150.2 - Hope to see a small drop tomorrow morning. 773 left over in the tracker (green)
    Day 11: Fri, 6/19: - 150.3 - Hmm, small gain, not sure why. Going to try to delay my cheat day (Rib Eye) since there is only one more weigh in for this week. It is in the freezer, I will have it another day. 176 calories left over
    Day 12: Sat, 6/20: - 150.6 - I had a Samosa and a Chimichanga last night. 571 left over in the tracker

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 149.9 - I know that this sounds ambitious, but my average (even with the high days) was 151.5
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 150.6 - 0.8 down from Day 1 (12 days)
    Excess calories burned, Green showing in the tracker as left over - 5296 calories

    Day 13: Sun, 6/21: - 150.6 - Missed the weigh in today, going with yesterday's weight. 1045 cal left over in the tracker
    Day 14: Mon, 6/22: - 152.0 - Ouch. Makes no sense. 926 cal left over in the tracker.
    Day 15: Tues, 6/23: 151.6 - Super frustrated. I work so hard at this! 608 calories left in the tracker
    Day 16: Wed, 6/24: - 151.6 - I don't get it, right on point. Still above day 1!! 909 calories left over in the tracker (green)
    Day 17: Thurs, 6/25: 150.7 - Peed like 40 times yesterday, guessing that it was trapped water? I had been working out in the hot sun every day since Monday, and yesterday it rained. Perhaps my body was holding on to the water because of the heat? 744 calories left over in the tracker.
    Day 18: Fri, 6/26: 150.1 - Good. Still a slight chance at hitting the weekly goal weight, but that is 1/2 a pound which normally takes me 2 weeks to lose. We'll see tomorrow. 1531 calories left over
    Day 19: Sat, 6/27: 150.0 - I am happy with this, super ready to get into the 140s - and stay there, I have touched them twice. 1676 calories left over
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 149.6
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 150.0
    Excess calories burned, Green showing in the tracker as left over: 7439 calories left over, which should equal 2+ pounds, but only in reality netted me a 0.6 pound loss. Very cruel, I am working very hard at this.

    Day 20: Sun, 6/28: - 149.3 - Tending not to believe this number, I mean, I like it, but I slept in today so got a lower number than I probably would have. Still great to touch this number for the first time! 875 calories left over.
    Day 21: Mon, 6/29: - 148.7 - New low! Maybe all of those excess calories burned are now showing up. Hoping that this is not just a fluctuation : - ) 1503 Calories left over
    Day 22: Tues, 6/30: - 148.1 - Last weeks excess calorie burn must be kicking in to this slow old metabolism! 714 calories left over

    Excess calories burned in June: 25,437, but this includes the entire month and we started this round on the 6th. 7.267 pounds mathematically that I should have lost for the entire month. (3500 calories equals a pound)
    The number not counting the 1st to the 5th is 21,658. 6.188 pounds mathematically I should have lost in 24 days.
    Weight Loss in June - 3.1 pounds - so much better than my usual 1 pound loss per month.

    Day 23: Wed, 7/1: 148.4 - 1053 calories left over
    Day 24: Thurs, 7/2: 149.4 - I didn't do anything to gain a pound in a day. Hoping that it is just a fluctuation. I never want to visit the 150s again, I was there for a long time.
    Day 25: Fri, 7/3: 149.2. I'll take it. Day off today, so lots of extra workouts here and there, healthy food. 1171 excess calories burned
    Day 26: Sat, 7/4: 149.1 - 332 excess calories burned
    4th Week Goal Weight: 148.3
    4th Week Actual Weight: 149.1
    Excess calories burned: 6634 - Should have amounted to an almost 2 pound loss, but somehow I gained.

    Day 27: Sun, 7/5: 149.1 - This could go up over the next few days, I partied yesterday. Hoping not and I will try to work out extra today. 1120 calories left over in the tracker - ate 1200
    Day 28: Mon, 7/6: 149.3 - Could have been worse from Saturday, mitigated it. Another one of my jobs has lifted lay-off, so my time for working out will not be as much soon, I will try to keep it up though. 1598 calories left over
    Day 29: Tues, 7/7: 149.1 - Major calorie burn yesterday, including lots of Zumba and yardwork, burned off more than I ate for the second day in a row. Hoping for a drop soon. 658 calories left over.
    Day 30: Wed, 7/8: 149.4 - High calorie burn days will be over for me now except for weekends now that I am back to work. 322 calories left over.
    Day 31: Thurs, 7/9: 148.4 - Very surprised at this, I worked extremely late and didn't get lunch/dinner until 10:30 at night. Sleeping in always gives me a good number. 785 calories left over
    Day 32: Fri, 7/10: 148.7 - I was so late in from work last night that I didn't finish lunch/dinner until 11:30!! Too late to be eating. Maybe it really does boil down to calories in calories out no matter what time of day that happens? I definitely get better results on the scale if I am 12 hours in between my last mouthful and weighing the next day. Working from home today instead of out in the field, so it should be better. 472 cal left over
    Day 33: Sat, 7/11: 148.8 138 calories left over
    5th Week Goal Weight: 148.1
    5th Week Actual Weight: 148.8 - Down 0.3 of a pound, had hoped for more, but better than gaining.
    5th Week Excess calories burned (Green in the tracker leftover) 4535 - so should have lost at least a pound

    Day 34: Sun, 7/12: Weighed at 4am instead of 9am, so will use my tomorrow weight as my week start weight. Ended at 148.8 for week 5. 886 calories left over.
    Day 35: Mon, 7/13: 149.1 That seems not right. 1,004 calories left over
    Day 36: Tues, 7/14: 148.7 - Weighing daily drives accountability, but there is also that fluctuation thing to deal with which can be a bit hurtful at times. I feel normalized today. 545 calories left over
    Day 37: Wed, 7/15: 148.4 - Still adjusting to going back to work, I don't eat or exercise like I was. 832 calories left over
    Day 38: Thurs, 7/16: 148.3 - Sloooowwww Took the day off of work, so less stressed and more time to work out. 1222 calories left over
    Day 39: Fri, 7/17: 148.3 - I had really expected a drop for this morning's weigh in, but nope. End of week weigh in tomorrow will keep me "good" I hope. 459 calories left over
    Day 40: Sat, 7/18: 148.1 - Somehow down 0.6lb. I ate "out" last night and I normally see at least a 2 pound gain when I do that. Hoping that it doesn't catch up with me. I was active, but also ate more than usual, so only 58 calories leftover.
    6th Week Goal Weight: 148.1
    6th Week Actual Weight: 148.1
    Excess calories burned: 5,006
    Day 41: Sun, 7/19: 148.5 - I ate and drank outside of my normal box this weekend including cheeseburger pizza (kept it to one slice), Wings, cocktails, chips...etc. Definitely grinding that to a halt immediately. Lucky to have only gained 0.4 of a pound. 919 calories left over
    Day 42: Mon, 7/20: 149.8 - There is the rest of the gain from the weekend. I cut right back starting yesterday, but the gain took a couple of days to show, and the loss won't happen overnight either. 281 calories left over
    Day 43: Tues, 7/21: 147.4 - Lowest ever! Very happy to see this number. 650 calories left over
    Day 44: Wed, 7/22: 147.0 - Happily surprised, almost didn't believe the low number, hoping that it is not a fluke. Tracking, measuring portions, working out...keeping it the same. 738 calories left over
    Day 45: Thurs, 7/23: 146.1 - So are all of those excess calories burned month after month just now catching up? I haven't changed anything at all. Maybe this heatwave is sweating the fat off of me. 30 calories left over
    Day 46: Fri, 7/24: 146.8 - This could go higher, I had my monthly Ribs feed last night. Kind of worth it, I will be more strict now. 667 calories left over
    Day 47: Sat, 7/25: 147.7 - So I looked at my pedometre and my weight was still entered as 178.1 so I wasn't burning as many calories walking as I had thought, although I don't walk often, especially in the heat. 321 calories left over
    7th Week Goal Weight: 147.1
    7th Week Actual Weight: 147.7

    Day 50: Tues, 7/28: 147.3 - This is exactly the half-way mark of our 100 - looks like I am down 3.9 pounds in 50 days. 968 calories left over.
    Day 51: Wed, 7/29: 145.6 - New low due to going back to bed for 2 hours early this morning. Nice number, I hope to see it again! 819 calories left over.
    Day 52: Thurs, 7/30: 144.5 - Almost unbelievable. Another case of going back to bed for 2 hours. Back in February I was ice skating every day and had 27,000 calories burned in excess, yet still only lost 1 pound instead of 7.71lbs. Maybe it is finally all kicking in with my old slow metabolism? Who knows. I will take it. The weekend will be a challenge, many bbqs and cocktails planned, so going into it with a bit of a buffer will be great. Feeling firmly into the 140s now, need to keep it there...until I can get into the 130s of course. 433 excess calories burned
    Day 53: Fri, 7/31: 145.0 - Long weekend here, it is going to be tough to keep on track 600 excess calories burned

    Day 57: Tues, 8/4: 146.4 - So happy that there are still a good variety of local berries and cherries this time of year. It makes breakfasts healthier, quick, and low calorie. 508 calories left over in the tracker.
    Day 58: Wed, 8/5: 145.8 - These weeks are going by fast, the summer is going by fast! 312 calories left over.
    Day 59: Thurs, 8/6: 145.8 - Glad to not have gained, had a bit of an indulgent day, but I worked out lots. 777 calories left over.
    Day 60: Fri, 8/7: 147.1 - Ouch! Hoping that it is a glitch and that I end this "week" better than that. Input and Output were on point. 767 calories left over
    Day 61: Sat, 8/8: 145.8
    9th Week Goal Weight: 145.7 - This sounds aggressive because of my poor start to the week, but I hit 144.5 in last week, week 8
    9th Week Actual Weight: 145.8 - Close to goal
    Excess calories burned: - 4208 - more than 1 pound worth.

    Day 65: Wed, 8/12: 145.6 - Burned almost as much as I ate yesterday! Full workout planned for today, 25 minutes of Zumba (Hip Hop Fitness Marshall) to loosen up and stretch the whole body, then 35 minutes of HIIT with weights (Heather Robinson I think). 40 seconds on, 20 seconds off. Primarily working from home today and will be doing a very long day in the field tomorrow. 3 days until our weigh-in for this week. I am trying really hard lol. 1343 calories left over!
    Day 66: Thurs, 8/13: 145.1 - Trying to lose 0.3 over the next few days. Working at it. 898 calories left over
    Day 67: Fri, 8/14: 144.9 - Yay. I have been burning a lot of extra calories this week including cutting the grass and stuff like that on top of my workouts. Keeping my eating calories low. Today my diet changes for at least a month, my first tomatoes are ripening and the rest will follow. Planning on a Tomato sandwich every single day with lots of mayo (1/2 fat Hellman's) and some sort of protein like bacon, ham, eggs. I will cut back elsewhere : - ) 132 calories left over
    Day 68: Sat, 8/15: 145.9 - Not a good way to end a very determined week of shedding weight : - ( 710 calories left over

    Day 70: Mon, 8/17: 144.4 - Slept in, so got a great number. Also peed like 100 times yesterday, so must have had some trapped fluid. 582 calories left over
    Day 71: Tues, 8/18: 143.2 - This number makes me motivated to continue to make weight loss my priority. My goal all year was to be into the 130s by my 60th birthday which is now in a month. I am starting to feel like I can get there even though I usually lose extremely slowly. Great way to start my day! 705 calories left over
    Day 72: Wed, 8/19: 143.2 - So great to see this number again. I have a long way to go still, but would be very happy if this is my new set point. 315 calories left over.

    Day 74: Fri, 8/21: 145.2 - Ouch! Back to day 1 of this round even though I felt like I was making so much progress. I will try not to sweat it and see what happens for our final weigh-in for the week tomorrow. 2 pound gain in 2 days really sucks! 698 calories left over.

    Day 76: Sun, 8/23: 143.9 - Less than a month left before my 60th birthday now. So badly want to hit those 130s. Really working on it. 533 calories left over.
    Day 77: Mon, 8/24: 144.9 - Argh this is so hard. 377 calories left over.
    Day 78: Tues, 8/25: 145.2 - Ouch. Trying not to be discouraged. 605 calories left over.
    Day 79: Wed, 8/26: 144.6 - Hanging tough, I am working very hard at this, trying to create a deficit each day. My goal weight for this week looks awfully far away. 315 calories left over.
    Day 80: Thurs, 8/27: 144.2 606 calories left over.
    Day 81: Fri, 8/28: 145.1 - Going to roll with it like a fluctuation, I was on point for everything yesterday. Way up from the start of this "week". 400 calories left over.
    Day 82: Sat, 8/29: 144.1 - I gained 0.2 total for this week, which I suppose could have been worse if I didn't pull it out on the last day. This might be the first week wherein I haven't burned enough calories on top of the regular to lose a pound. I really can't lose anything if I don't. 400 excess burned
    12th Week Goal Weight: 142.9
    12th Week Actual Weight: 144.1 - I gained this week : - (
    Excess calories burned: 3063 - not enough to lose a pound

    Day 83: Sun, 8/30: DNW 650 excess calories burned
    Day 84: Mon, 8/31: 145.2 - disappointed with that! 565 excess calories burned
    Day 85: Tues, 9/1: 144.9 - Wow we are getting close to the end of our 100 days. Final push underway. 666 calories left over (yup, the number of the beast)
    Day 86: Wed, 9/2: 143.8 - Much more calorie burn yesterday, and more (healthy version) food too. 390 calories left over
    Day 87: Thurs, 9/3: 143.7 - Only 12 days left to Day 100!!! Final push is on. 916 calories left over
    Day 88: Fri, 9/4: 142.3 - The more deficit that I can create with extra calorie burn seems to work for me! If I can stay focused I am on track to lose 10 pounds this 100 which would be super duper.
    Day 89: Sat, 9/5: 143.1 - 994 calories left over

    13th Week Goal Weight: 143.2
    13th Week Actual Weight: 143.1
    Excess calories burned: 4487 - Definitely enough to lose one pound +

    Day 90: Sun, 9/6: 142.5 - Good way to start this week on the challenge. 840 calories left over.
    Day 91: Mon, 9/7: 143.1 - Aiming for 2 pounds less than this by the end of the 100. Taking it seriously and working hard at it, making weight loss a priority. I have hit the 142s twice now, maybe I can hit that again tomorrow : - ) 445 calories left over
    Day 92: Tues, 9/8: 143.2 - Hanging in there. I would like to see a loss, but know that I am on track and that it will come. 195 calories left over
    Day 93: Wed, 9/9: 143.6 - Pizza last night, so up in weight this morning. 752 calories left over
    Day 94: Thurs, 9/10: 143.9 - Still showing the effects of my homemade naan pizza. I worked out extra yesterday, hoping to see some better results tomorrow. Only 6 more days left of the 100!! Definitely striving for a 10 pound loss this 100, but 2.8 more pounds seems unreasonable in 6 days. Going to try anyway. 716 calories left over
    Day 95: Fri, 9/11: 142.0 - Yippee Yahoo! Hard work indeed, but I want this. 445 calories left over
    Day 96: Sat, 9/12: 142.0 - Going to try for a deficit of 500 calories today, weekend, time for extra workouts/activities. 673 calories left over
    14th Week Goal Weight: 141.2
    14th Week Actual Weight: 142.0
    Excess calories burned: 4066 - enough to lose a pound.

    Day 97: Sun, 9/13: 142.9 - Ow, gain 0.9 in one day and to lose 0.9 can take 2 weeks. Hoping that it is just a fluctuation. Worked out lots - 982 calories left over
    Day 98: Mon, 9/14: 142.7 - Of course would have liked to see it lower, still above my 14th week EW. 672 left over
    Day 99: Tues, 9/15: 142.4 - On track to lose more weight than my previous 2 rounds of 100. Keeping track of and working towards my deficit each day seems to be working for me. 703 left over
    Day 100: Wed, 9/16: 142.3 - - I totally could have went back to bed for an hour instead of weighing at 5am and would have gotten to 142.1 today

    15th Week Goal Weight: 141.2 - Because this would be a 10 pound loss for the 100. Unreasonable maybe with only 1 day left.
    15th Week Actual Weight:142.3
    Excess calories burned: I will tally the last day in tomorrow, and I want to tally my excess (calories in the Green) and compare them to my weight loss based on 3500cal to lose a pound.

    Challenge Starting Weight: 151.2
    Challenge Goal: 131.2
    Challenge Ending Weight: 142.3
    Total Weight Loss for Challenge: 8.9 pounds
    By far my best round of my 3 of 100. Definitely doing what I need to do to lose weight. Next 100 I want to see the 130s for sure!
    It has been a pleasure to spend these 100 with y'all!

    @dawnbgethealthy - Thanks! 100 days takes me right into 2021 and past the holidays so thinking that is a wonderful idea. Great seeing you here too.

    @Miyoka_Tata has been looking after us by re-instating this previously abandoned thread. Thanks Gurl : - )

    100 days of checking in every day and weighing every day is real accountability, and a motivator to reach goals. quite a big picture.

    @Miyoka_Tata broke it down into weekly chunks, so short term goals/accountability, and long term.

    8th Week Actual Weight: 162.8 (These past 2 weeks have been more aggressive and it shows. While I transition into something not so aggressive the next few weeks, we'll see what happens, but of course, I am happy and want to keep this momentum up! It's been a LOOOONG TIME since I've been in the 150s, so that's what I'm currently striving for!

    Day 64: Tues, 8/11: 163.8 (I love the week before TOM! lol)
    Day 65: Wed, 8/12: 164.6 (I'm going to attribute this to week before TOM and the new heavy lifting routine I've been doing and *crossing fingers* hope it's muscle haha! I'm not going to worry too much about the numbers just yet as I've been still within my goals!)
    Day 66: Thurs, 8/13: 164
    Day 67: Fri, 8/14: 163.8
    Day 68: Sat, 8/15: 164.6 (Ate crappy, but that's because my daughter is here and that's okay! I'll go back to normal on Monday, but for now, we are enjoying our time together. I mean I'm not eating TOO bad, but definitely different than my norm and it will definitely show on my weigh in day. But the good thing is that we've been very active and I'm still getting my workouts in somehow!)

    10th Week Goal Weight: 162
    10th Week Actual Weight: 164.6

    Day 69: Sun, 8/16: 166 (Ouch, that is scary looking, but I'm not going to let it get to me. Today is my last day with my daughter and tomorrow is a new day, plus TOM is next week as well. I've still been active, but haven't been able to do my strength training. All back to normal tomorrow. We are having a great time together and that's more important to me than numbers right now!)
    Day 70: Mon, 8/17: 166.6 (Weigh-In Day) (+3.8 since last week) - (As awful as this looks, I'm not letting this get to me. I just dropped my daughter off at the airport and we had a wonderful time together! Today I will be back to my regular schedule and will work hard to get this off. I know what I need to do. Also this week is TOM so we'll see what happens!)
    Day 71: Tues, 8/18: 165.6 (Back on track with my workouts and eating schedule. Strength training yesterday was tough though.)
    Day 72: Wed, 8/19: 164.6 (It's weird how each day fluctuates so much, but that's just how it is!)
    Day 73: Thurs, 8/20: 162.4 (Lol, I don't understand this at all, but whatever!)
    Day 74: Fri, 8/21: 161.6 (I guess all that good food I ate, while not immense was just salty?? Still so strange!)

    Day 77: Mon, 8/24: 161.2 (Weigh-In Day -5.4 lbs since last week) (So glad this stuck! I lost the weight I gained plus an extra 1.6 lbs to bring me back to where I needed to be)
    Day 78: Tues, 8/25: 160.6 (I wasn't hungry last night after my workout and after my protein shake. I still had quite a bit to go and I struggled to make my macros. I still did fairly well, but still didn't reach them. Maybe I should eat more at lunch just in case.)
    Day 79: Wed, 8/26: 160.2
    Day 80: Thurs, 8/27: 160.4
    Day 81: Fri, 8/28: 159.8 (I haven't seen the 150s in 4 years. I'm not going to be TOO happy yet, since weight fluctuates daily, but it's still so nice to see!)
    Day 82: Sat, 8/29: 160.2

    12th Week Goal Weight: 160
    12th Week Actual Weight: 160.2 (I'm happy with this! Gotta keep it up!)

    Day 84: Mon, 8/31: 160.4 (Weigh-In Day; -.8 lbs since last week. I'm happy with whatever I can get!)
    Day 85: Tues, 9/1: 161.2 (I'm a bit off this week for some reason. I'm trying so hard to get at least 7 hours of sleep, but I only get 5-6. That's probably my biggest struggle. I need my body to fully rest, so I can keep going. I woke up with a cramp in my calf, so I didn't want to get up to work out, so I gotta try after work.
    Day 86: Wed, 9/2: 161.2 (sorta back on track today with my morning workout. I just wish I could sleep more than 6 hours!)
    Day 87: Thurs, 9/3: 161 (Just came back from a 3 mile trail walk with my doggy. It was great!)
    Day 88: Fri, 9/4: 161 (Admittedly this week I haven't been 100% following my macros, but I am still under my calorie goals. But I feel so much better sticking to my macros, so gotta get back to it!)
    Day 89: Sat, 9/5: 160.4 (Trying to get back to the 150s and stay there - this week has been tough, but happy where it's ended thus far.)

    13th Week Goal Weight: 158
    13th Week Actual Weight: 160.4
    Day 90: Sun, 9/6: 160.4
    Day 91: Mon, 9/7: 160.2 (Weigh-In Day; -.2 lbs since last week. Whew! Wasn't sure I was going to lose anything, so I'm happy about this. This week will be much more intense, so we'll see how these final days go. My ultimate goal now for this challenge is to reach 15 lbs lost.)
    Day 92: Tues, 9/8: 161 (Next week is TOM, so I know how this goes and am expecting the gain this week, just gotta remember the loss that comes with it!)
    Day 93: Wed, 9/9: 161
    Day 94: Thurs, 9/10: 160.8
    Day 95: Fri, 9/11: 160.2

    Day 97: Sun, 9/13: 159.8
    Day 98: Mon, 9/14: 160.2 (Weigh-In Day; 0 lbs lost since last week. So maintained. I'm fine with that.) Of course these final few days it's now my TOM. Oh well!!
    Day 99: Tues, 9/15: 159.6 (Just one day left!!!)
    Day 100: Wed, 9/16: 158.6 (Okay, I did NOT expect to see this, but a welcome surprise on this final day of this 100th day! Here's to the next 100!)

    Weight Loss in June……………….. 3.1 lbs
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..3.1 lbs.


    Day 23 – 07/01 …..207.9…..
    Day 24 – 07/02 …..208.0….. A normal fluctuation because yesterday was a pretty good day although I could still tighten my belt some if I had a minute.
    Day 25 – 07 /03 …..207.9…..No time, even for a quick chat. I seriously need to plan & log because I am burning calories but likely eating too many too. And those carbs……
    Day 26 – 07/04 …..207.9…..
    Day 27 – 07/05 …..207.8….I suppose I should be grateful : /
    Day 28 – 07/06 …..207.5….. Some things went right, some things went wrong during this holiday weekend, but when the good outweighs the bad it’s a bit of progress. I hope to have things slow down a tiny bit this week and be able to focus more on logging and food prep. Only I can make the changes that need to be made and do so Consistently. Everyone is doing fantastic. Let’s keep up the good fight!
    Day 29 – 07/07 …..208.6….. One small cheeseburger and BAM!!! I think it’s salt and water retention. Let us hope……
    Day 30 – 07/08…..208.4….. Hopefully losing this water retention but I am not peeing very much (sorry for TMI) so I have to wonder….. Of course, there is all the sweat from the heat and no AC. Anyway, just happy for a small drop on the scale. @dawnbgethealthy I hope things are going well with your job and being back to work. My best to you…..
    Day 31 – 07/09 …..208.4….. Status Quo
    Day 32 – 07 /10 …..209.0….. Feeling inspired today by you all. I will make today a good day, one day at a time!
    Day 33 – 07/11 …..209.8….. I did everything right and the scale just ignored that fact. It’s okay……I don’t give up that easily!
    Day 34 – 07/12 …..209.6…..Not exactly happy but at least its back in the right direction.
    Day 35 – 07/13 …..209.6…..
    Day 36 – 07/14 …..209.6…..Much ado about nothing!
    Day 37 – 07/15 …..209.6….. Wow, really on the hamster wheel here.
    Day 38 – 07 /16 …..210.1….. Going thru some life-altering things right now. Most of it surprising and unexpected on so many levels. I am not able to follow thru on everything I wanted to accomplish. The rest of this year will prove to be challenging in my time and efforts but I will hang in here, be inspired, and do what I can whenever I can. I know it won’t be 100%, there is honestly nothing I can do about that right now. But I will give it every percent I can, when I can. Thanks for your patience folks. You are all my greatest of inspirations. #notgivingup
    Day 39 – 07 /17 …..210.0…..Dizzy with stress all day. I don’t mean the normal stresses we all must endure on the daily. This is the bad stuff but I am coping. Diet was off today pretty bad but I actually got in more deliberate movement. Changing what I can when I can, that is the best any of us can hope for. Tonight I am going to go for some “me” time.
    Day 40 – 07/18 …..210.0…..


    Day 41 – 07 /19…..210.1…..
    Day 42 – 07/20 …..210.0….. Flipping & Flopping. Not overeating but eating the “wrong things” for sure. Fair calories but higher carbs.
    Day 43 – 07/21 …..210.0….. You guys are all slaying it. Hopefully my turn soon. Just gotta make the changes consistently and not let so much get in the way!
    Day 44 – 07/22 …..210.1….. like a teeter-totter
    Day 45 – 07/23 …..210.0…..
    Day 46 – 07/24 …..210.0…..
    Day 47 – 07/25 …..210.0…..
    Day 48 – 07/26 …..210.0…..Holding my own, I suppose. While I can’t exactly focus or fully commit during this time, I realize that even small changes can help. I’ve been doing that when possible and I am happy there is no gain.
    Day 49 – 07/27 …..210.2….. likely a fluctuation or a bit of water retention. Diet was average yesterday. No reason for a gain.
    Day 50 – 07 /28 …..209.8….. I am pretty sure they are going to put my loving cat to sleep today. I am a wreck. Weight drop on the scale because I can’t eat right now. Vet appointment at 3:00 .
    Day 51 – 07/29 …..208.1….. She was put down at 3:30. Obviously couldn’t eat yesterday. They say time heals all wounds and I know it will get better. I’ve been down this road before. Right now, however, it feels like it will never get any easier.
    Day 52 – 07/30…..209.2….. Thanks ladies for you comforting words. I am going to try to focus more on my quality of eating in the coming days. My quantities are okay, it’s the choices I am making. Goal: To get back on track asap although there is still so much going on in my life that I cannot control right now. The coming months will continue to be dreadful but I will do what I can, when I can. Every choices counts.
    Day 53 – 07 /31 …..209.4….. I think this is a correction. OMAD today. I will have a small snack tonight. I was pretty upset all day thinking about my Reeces. As time passes, I know it will get easier. In the meantime, more water and better choices are what is on the menu!

    Weight Loss in July……………….. 1.5 lb GAIN
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 lb Loss



    Day 54 – 08/01 …..209.4…..
    Day 55 – 08/02…..209.9….. Chocolate.
    Day 56 – 08/03 …..209.8….. Much deserved bloating and tummy aches. I hope it will resolve itself today.
    Day 57 – 08/04 …..209.8…..
    Day 58 – 08/05 …..209.8….. Hovering…..
    Day 59 – 08/06…..209.8…..
    Day 60 – 08/07 …..209.6……Finally a small bit of improvement!
    Day 61 – 08/08 .….209.8……Thai food with rice. Hopefully this small increase is sodium related and temporary.
    Day 62 – 08/09 …..209.8……
    Day 63 – 08/10 …..209.5…… Love this drop on the scale this morning! I wish I could say I was 100% back on track but it would be a lie. I did burn many many calories yesterday with my normal Sunday work cleaning tourist cabins and had little time to eat so the calories were down. But my nighttime efforts of avoiding the junk food or bad quick foods paid off. It would be nice if I could pick up the ball and run with it today. I will try but today is scheduled to be stressful day #1 of many more stressful days to come. Some of the things I’m going thru and really starting to progress and take hold. Focus….Focus….Focus……
    Day 64 – 08/11 …..209.5……
    Day 65 – 08/12 …..209.7……
    Day 66 – 08/13 …..209.6…… My whole world is turned upside down so I am happy just to be maintaining from day to day. Things will eventually get better!
    Day 67 – 08/14 …..209.6…… I appreciate all the kind and thoughtful words. Thanks everyone.
    Day 68 – 08/15 …..209.6……
    Day 69 – 08/16 …..209.5……
    Day 70 –08 /17 …..209.3…… I picked up my kitty’s ashes today. It was rough but she is with me again and that’s all I can cling to. Not much appetite. Yesterday was a more careful day and it showed up on the scale this morning. Trying as hard as I can, whenever I can. My situations won’t last forever.
    Day 71 –08 /18 …..209.4…… A slight fluctuation. Yesterday was a bit of a low calorie day.
    Day 72 – 08/19 …..209.6…… Grrr….
    Day 73 – 08/20 …..209.5…… Just bouncing around in what appears to be Maintenance. A long road ahead.
    Day 74 –08 /21 …..209.2…… A nice way to start the weekend!
    Day 75 – 08/22 …..209.3…… Just a normal fluctuation. Things went well yesterday although I could have used a bit more exercise/movement.
    Day 76 –08 /23 …..209.3…… Holding my own I suppose. Today will be a busy day so extra calorie burn is what is on the menu for me.
    Day 77 –08 /24 …..209.3…… Poured the rain yesterday so not as much exercise as planned. Cooked a wonderful “diet dinner” but found myself way too hungry last night. Stuck to some lean cuisine at midnight. Low calorie but was like having a second dinner. My bigger fatter me is not like the smaller quantities I was eating before. I’ve got to re-train on portion control.
    Day 78 – 08/25 …..210.5…… 1 ½ slices of pizza and WHAM!
    Day 79 - 08/26 …..210.2…..
    Day 80 –08 /27 …..210.2 …… no change. Out of town today. Tomorrow the scale will probably be up.
    Day 81 – 08/28 …..210.7…… After travel. Ugg!
    Day 82 – 08/29…..211.4…… Still creeping up from travel because yesterday was actually a pretty good day. However, I did not get to the fitness marshall video yet. Will try to aim for it again today. Weekends are tough to try to have a few private moments here at the motel. Phones galore and someone always at the desk interrupting everything from exercise, to meals, even potty. I’m a one-man show since my hubby passed away. We shall see how today goes.
    Day 83 –08 /30 …..210.9…… Yesterday went well with the diet although still no time for zumba. Too tired to do it late at night last night. Hopefully soon! Scale down due to a strict diet yesterday. However, emergency travel today for a tv replacement for son. Over 5 hours total just in driving time. Ate at Applebee’s. I ordered the grilled lime chicken but I expect a jump on the scale due to the rice, even though I didn’t finish the rice. Carbs are my enemy.
    Day 84 – 08/31 …..211.1…… The after travel weight gain a bit less than I expected so I am okay with this. Picnic today but I will pack healthy stuff and fit in a short hike along the river as long as the plans aren’t cancelled.

    Weight GAIN in August……………….. 1.7 pound GAIN
    Total Accumulated Weight GAIN….. 0.1 lb gain. Getting nowhere.



    Day 85 –09/01 …..211.6…… Well there is the expected bump from after travel x2 this week. Because I have not been watching carbs like I should, that it actually a small gain. When deep into the carb counting, one travel day can cost me 3-5 pounds so I am actually pleased with this number. But it’s in the wrong direction, so I’ve got to get back on track!
    Day 86 – 09/02 …..211.6…… At this point, I am just focusing at getting this under my challenge starting weight. Gaining per 100 days is not an option!
    Day 87 – 09/03 …..211.2…… Truthfully, peed a lot yesterday. I guess I was losing water from restaurant/travel retention.
    Day 88 –09 /04 …..211.3……
    Day 89 – 09/05…..211.2……
    Day 90 – 09/06…..211.2……
    Day 91 – 09/07 …..211.8…..Pizza. I hope to burn it off today with a heavy work day scheduled.
    Day 92 – 09/08 …..211.6……Lots of work yesterday but also I made a trip to the campground to see my grandson enjoy nature. A cheeseburger and chips for dinner which is not what I usually plan, but all is good. Weight still working its way back down.
    Day 93 – 09/09 …..211.4…… Some travel yesterday and a restaurant meal, but I kept it in check and did not over-indulge. I hope for some clean eating today. I have a heavy schedule which includes 3 hair appointments for son & 2 DGS' which always include a restaurant meal out, but I plan on sustaining and eating my dinner at home in a more controlled atmosphere. I don't need restaurant food two days in a row or the water retention that comes with it!
    Day 94 – 09/10 …..211.4……
    Day 95 – 09/11 …..212.2……
    Day 96 – 09/12 …..211.6……Finally able to get back onto MFP communities. They must have fixed the glitch!
    Day 97 – 09/13 …..212.6…… I know why.
    Day 98 – 09/14 …..211.6……Okay, back in business. I kept carbs a bit lower yesterday. No incidents with my glucose even with the lower carbs so that was good. Lots of stress here today, I will be working hard on not eating my emotions. I would like to get under my 211.0 starting weight, even just a smidgen, to maintain my self-respect and to point me in the right direction for the next round.
    Day 99 –09 /15 …..211.6…… Travelled today. I hope it doesn’t hurt my final weigh-in. It's not always what I eat. Sometimes it's just the lack of movement.
    Day 100 – 09/16 (Final Weight In)……211.3……Damn it! I was hopeing to at least break even at 211 or even get down a bit. I am ready for the new 100. My situation is no better and my stress level is through the roof on matters both personal and business, but I’ve GOT to keep up the faith! Congrats to all of you with such wonderful successes. I may not have earned it this 100, but I am proud to be a member of the group!
