    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ (Date) through (Date)
    My Name is Donna, Age 60. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    ENDING WEIGHT YESTERDAY: 211.0
    Day 01 – 06/09 …..211.0….. Traveling today which will help get me out of the expected HOT day. So I do expect an increase on the scale tomorrow (water weight) but all will be okay. I’ll stay on top of it in the coming week. I am looking forward to some progress (finally)! Good luck everyone on this 100 !!!!
    Day 02 – 06/10 …..211.0….. I’m actually pleased with this after a very long day of travel (sitting & restaurants). Usually I just drive by a restaurant sign and gain a few pounds. It’s time to work my way down now!
    Day 03 – 06/11 …..211.0….. No change again. Unusual for me to hit a plateau at my higher weights. I don’t know if that is what is going on but I guess time will tell. dawnbgethealthy Congrats on hitting the 140’s. All that gardening and sacrifice is paying off (zumba too!) You continue to inspire!
    Day 04 – 06/12 …..209.6….. Whew! Working hard & its paying off. Not 100% the best choices on low carb foods, but lower calories and lots of movement! Keep it up Donna!
    Day 05 - 06/13 .…..209.0….. Okay then! I wasn’t perfect but I was mindful, even on such a busy day yesterday. The spring cleaning has been UnGodly awful but it has got to have an end somewhere soon! Today and tomorrow I work on painting a bedroom and prepping for new carpet. Just getting the furniture out and stored in the garage was a chore. Thank Goodness I had help!
    Day 06 – 06/14 …..208.1….. Working hard & sticking to plan. Yesterday was a very disciplined day. Calories burned 3218.
    Day 07 – 06/15 …..208.7 ….. Not the best food choices but kept the snacking under control. Ate bread for quick filling sandwiches and carbs don’t like me. Lots of hard work again yesterday. 3167 Calories burned. Not enough water or sleep though.
    Day 08 – 06/16.…..207.6….. I stayed away from the bread (mostly) and tried to grab & go fast but less carby things and it payed off. Slightly over 3000 calories burned so that was good. Work included gardening, rigorous cleaning and lots of walking and steps. Multiple home projects are going well. Dawnbgethealthy: Yes I have been burning more than my usual calories but don’t forget that I am a much bigger gal than you right now so my burn with each step is bigger. I can’t wait to be smaller again but I’m aware that the smaller we get, the less we burn with each activity, making it harder to lose the weight. You are there now but your weight is moving too. Let’s stay strong together! Even if it’s inch by inch instead of foot by foot, you are doing fantastic, staying dedicated and inspiring me for sure!
    Day 09 – 06/17 …..208.4….. I had a very serious and very embarrassing glucose drop while working with a handyman I hard for the heavy jobs around the house yesterday. I stuffed my face and recovered within 30 minutes so I could drive 20 miles round-trip to the hardware store. I ended over calorie & carb but less than a pound showed up on the scale. I hope it stops at that. Damn set-backs! Lack of willpower on some days is all the set-backs anyone ever needs. This glucose problem just plain ol’ sux!
    Day 10 – 06 /18 ….208.4….. Carpet is now installed. Now, to get the furniture back in and all the curtains back on the windows (after cleaning)! Another busy day ahead. Today I may try to finally log my food again. I think it will help keep me on track with portion sizes (which is where I am going wrong right now). A very hot day expected today (92 F). No AC so I am hoping that I can sweat off a good pound in what will feel like a sauna instead of a house!
    Day 11 – 06/19 …..208.4….. Holding steady but need to get this weight down. I appreciate all the concern & suggestions in regards to my glucose. It is scary when it happens and I do guzzle drinks and shovel in food (more than probably necessary) until it comes back up. In just moments, the whole day’s numbers can be ruined but I am slowly learning that the rest of my day should stay on point, even if I close out the day with numbers I am not happy with. I am getting better at NOT saying “well, today is blown so I may as well eat anything that I want”. Today I will aim for a bit more snacking (as suggested) of healthy foods that can help keep my sugar up. However, I usually start the day with my glucose too high and work at getting it down. Sometimes it just drops too quickly and to very low (and sometimes dangerous) levels so it is so challenging! Getting my weight back down is what will help the most. My medications are geared for a lower weight (not what I weight right now after the holiday gain and the corona gain). I just DON’T want to get into a medication change when I still feel I can get better numbers on the scale. I’m going to work as hard as possible to achieve my goals safely but surely. Thanks for all the support! It helps more than you know!
    Day 12 – 06/20 …..208.4….. What goes up must come down! Waiting as patiently as I can. I feel bloated and sticky from the heat. I definitely need more water to replenish and renew.
    Day 13 – 06 /21 .….208.3….. Ugg!
    Day 14 – 06/22 …..208.2….. As long as it keeps moving downward, I guess I’ll be happy. It’s hard not being greedy. I would rather see whole numbers and not fractions for losses!
    Day 15 – 06/23 …..209.8….. Two slices of pizza while finally being able to dine-in somewhere. A pound and a half later, I’m still wondering if it was worth it. I will stay strict and strong today and inch this number back down. Defeat is not an option.
    Day 16 – 06/24 …..209.1 …..
    Day 17 - 06 /25 …..208.5…..Working it back down.
    Day 18 – 06 /26 …. 208.5….. Maintaining was not exactly the goal but I am happy for no gain after the ice cream my part-time neighbor brought over. Trying to keep it honest and on track today. So far, so good!
    Day 19 – 06/27 …..208.5…..
    Day 20 – 06/28 …..208.8….. Hot dogs with buns, chili & ketchup. Fast cook, grab & go food on a busy Saturday. Carbs will always be my enemy.
    Day 21 – 06 /29 ….208.8…..
    Day 22 – 06/30 …..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 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:
    The one ending February 29 - Total loss over 100 days: 3.7 pounds
    This last one:
    Day 1 March 01 - 154.4
    Day 100 June 08 - 151.7
    Total: 2.7 pounds lost in 100 days. Argh, all of that hard work for such a piddly result.
    200 days = 6.4 - So hopefully at least 10 pounds per year. This will take forever!!
    I like to see a monthly total usually, but will try this weekly idea. More accountability : - )
    I am going to keep track of my leftover calories this time, based on 1200 calories consumed per day.

    Weeks 1 & 2
    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!

    Excess calories burned in June (will update this tomorrow)
    Weight Loss in June - 3.1 pounds!!! Yippee Yahoo!!

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ (Date) through (Date)
    My Name is Donna, Age 60. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    ENDING WEIGHT YESTERDAY: 211.0
    Day 01 – 06/09 …..211.0….. Traveling today which will help get me out of the expected HOT day. So I do expect an increase on the scale tomorrow (water weight) but all will be okay. I’ll stay on top of it in the coming week. I am looking forward to some progress (finally)! Good luck everyone on this 100 !!!!
    Day 02 – 06/10 …..211.0….. I’m actually pleased with this after a very long day of travel (sitting & restaurants). Usually I just drive by a restaurant sign and gain a few pounds. It’s time to work my way down now!
    Day 03 – 06/11 …..211.0….. No change again. Unusual for me to hit a plateau at my higher weights. I don’t know if that is what is going on but I guess time will tell. dawnbgethealthy Congrats on hitting the 140’s. All that gardening and sacrifice is paying off (zumba too!) You continue to inspire!
    Day 04 – 06/12 …..209.6….. Whew! Working hard & its paying off. Not 100% the best choices on low carb foods, but lower calories and lots of movement! Keep it up Donna!
    Day 05 - 06/13 .…..209.0….. Okay then! I wasn’t perfect but I was mindful, even on such a busy day yesterday. The spring cleaning has been UnGodly awful but it has got to have an end somewhere soon! Today and tomorrow I work on painting a bedroom and prepping for new carpet. Just getting the furniture out and stored in the garage was a chore. Thank Goodness I had help!
    Day 06 – 06/14 …..208.1….. Working hard & sticking to plan. Yesterday was a very disciplined day. Calories burned 3218.
    Day 07 – 06/15 …..208.7 ….. Not the best food choices but kept the snacking under control. Ate bread for quick filling sandwiches and carbs don’t like me. Lots of hard work again yesterday. 3167 Calories burned. Not enough water or sleep though.
    Day 08 – 06/16.…..207.6….. I stayed away from the bread (mostly) and tried to grab & go fast but less carby things and it payed off. Slightly over 3000 calories burned so that was good. Work included gardening, rigorous cleaning and lots of walking and steps. Multiple home projects are going well. Dawnbgethealthy: Yes I have been burning more than my usual calories but don’t forget that I am a much bigger gal than you right now so my burn with each step is bigger. I can’t wait to be smaller again but I’m aware that the smaller we get, the less we burn with each activity, making it harder to lose the weight. You are there now but your weight is moving too. Let’s stay strong together! Even if it’s inch by inch instead of foot by foot, you are doing fantastic, staying dedicated and inspiring me for sure!
    Day 09 – 06/17 …..208.4….. I had a very serious and very embarrassing glucose drop while working with a handyman I hard for the heavy jobs around the house yesterday. I stuffed my face and recovered within 30 minutes so I could drive 20 miles round-trip to the hardware store. I ended over calorie & carb but less than a pound showed up on the scale. I hope it stops at that. Damn set-backs! Lack of willpower on some days is all the set-backs anyone ever needs. This glucose problem just plain ol’ sux!
    Day 10 – 06 /18 ….208.4….. Carpet is now installed. Now, to get the furniture back in and all the curtains back on the windows (after cleaning)! Another busy day ahead. Today I may try to finally log my food again. I think it will help keep me on track with portion sizes (which is where I am going wrong right now). A very hot day expected today (92 F). No AC so I am hoping that I can sweat off a good pound in what will feel like a sauna instead of a house!
    Day 11 – 06/19 …..208.4….. Holding steady but need to get this weight down. I appreciate all the concern & suggestions in regards to my glucose. It is scary when it happens and I do guzzle drinks and shovel in food (more than probably necessary) until it comes back up. In just moments, the whole day’s numbers can be ruined but I am slowly learning that the rest of my day should stay on point, even if I close out the day with numbers I am not happy with. I am getting better at NOT saying “well, today is blown so I may as well eat anything that I want”. Today I will aim for a bit more snacking (as suggested) of healthy foods that can help keep my sugar up. However, I usually start the day with my glucose too high and work at getting it down. Sometimes it just drops too quickly and to very low (and sometimes dangerous) levels so it is so challenging! Getting my weight back down is what will help the most. My medications are geared for a lower weight (not what I weight right now after the holiday gain and the corona gain). I just DON’T want to get into a medication change when I still feel I can get better numbers on the scale. I’m going to work as hard as possible to achieve my goals safely but surely. Thanks for all the support! It helps more than you know!
    Day 12 – 06/20 …..208.4….. What goes up must come down! Waiting as patiently as I can. I feel bloated and sticky from the heat. I definitely need more water to replenish and renew.
    Day 13 – 06 /21 .….208.3….. Ugg!
    Day 14 – 06/22 …..208.2….. As long as it keeps moving downward, I guess I’ll be happy. It’s hard not being greedy. I would rather see whole numbers and not fractions for losses!
    Day 15 – 06/23 …..209.8….. Two slices of pizza while finally being able to dine-in somewhere. A pound and a half later, I’m still wondering if it was worth it. I will stay strict and strong today and inch this number back down. Defeat is not an option.
    Day 16 – 06/24 …..209.1 …..
    Day 17 - 06 /25 …..208.5…..Working it back down.
    Day 18 – 06 /26 …. 208.5….. Maintaining was not exactly the goal but I am happy for no gain after the ice cream my part-time neighbor brought over. Trying to keep it honest and on track today. So far, so good!
    Day 19 – 06/27 …..208.5…..
    Day 20 – 06/28 …..208.8….. Hot dogs with buns, chili & ketchup. Fast cook, grab & go food on a busy Saturday. Carbs will always be my enemy.
    Day 21 – 06 /29 ….208.8…..
    Day 22 – 06/30 …..207.9….. That’s better but I am doubting it will stick because my calories were very low yesterday and my calorie burn very high. Not my typical day. However, I’ll take what I can get, even if it’s just incentive by seeing smaller numbers on the scale.

    Day 6: Sun, 6/14: 203.8 - worked a 12hr shift yesterday. Didn't eat horribly, but could've been better. I didn't workout either. Today's focus: weighing and measuring food logged, and walking during downtime at work.
    Day 7: Mon, 6/15: 200.0 I lost 3lbs overnight 😮 however, I know this was because I drank a lot of water yesterday and TOM started. But, I’ll take it! I was holding on to that 203 foot over a week now.
    Day 8: Tues, 6/16: 201.2 - I ran 7 miles yesterday, and I can visibly see that I have some swelling around my knees and left ankle. This is common for me after a long run, and I am certain this is what caused the slight gain. I work 2 12hour shifts in a row the next couple of days, so no working out. I am sure this number will come back down after 2 rest days.
    Day 9: Wed, 6/17: 202.4 trying not to get discouraged. I didn’t log this in time because I had 0 sleep that night and I had to travel for work today. I’ll just have to keep pushing though.
    Day 10: Thurs, 6/18: 201.2 heading back in the right direction. Oddly enough, yesterday sucked for nutrition, and I hadn’t worked out for 2 days. Today, one of my favorite classes is back at the Y, and I plan to be there! I have off work until Tuesday, and plan to spend the next few days with a heavy focus on nutrition and solid workouts.
    Day 11: Fri, 6/19: 200.00!!!! I honestly doubted my body would get here. It likes to hold onto weight, but aside from my days at work, I’ve been working out hard! It went up after my last 200 weigh in the other day and I thought for sure I’d continue that trend. Yesterday was arm day, and I lifted for 50min before hopping on the treadmill for another 50. Usually the day after I lift or do a long run, I gain at least 1-2lbs. I’m excited to keep going!
    Day 12: Sat, 6/20: 199.8 BOOYA!!
    2nd Week Goal Weight: 200.00
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 199.8

    Day 13: Sun, 6/21: 202.4 yesterday I didn’t workout, and took the man to Texas Roadhouse for an early Father’s Day supper. Damn you cinnamon sugar butter and rolls 😂
    Day 14: Mon, 6/22: 201.2 spent yesterday at the lake with the man’s family. It was a horrible eating day, but we really had a nice day so trying not to be hard on myself. Woke up this morning with horrible vertigo. Like hold on to the wall kind of dizzy. Not feeling well at all.
    Day 15: Tues, 6/23: Didn’t weigh, still wasn’t feeling well ☹️
    Day 16: Wed, 6/24: 202.4 😒 moving in the wrong direction. I haven’t worked out since Friday- traveling for work
    Day 17: Thurs, 6/25: 201.2 still not happy with where I’m at, but I’m feeling so much better. It’s going to be a double workout day today. 45 minutes of weights/45 minutes of jogging in the morning with my man. Then Zumba this evening. Hoping I can still get on track for 198
    Day 18: Fri, 6/26: I could've sworn I recorded my weight for Friday, but I must've forgot to come here and log it! I was at 201.2 Still. I did get a workout in yesterday morning, but I did not end up going to Zumba. I have had pain in my left knee and need to listen to my body.
    Day 19: Sat, 6/27: 200.00.... *sigh* I didn't hit the 198 I had so hoped for. It was a rough week though, starting off with eating out, then vertigo and I was horrible about logging my food. However, I did workout more, and I am getting stronger when I lift, so I am happy with that. I will continue to push for 198 next week. I am also modifying my end date. I am realizing now that my original goal was pretty steep given that I would have 14 weeks to lose 40ish pounds. I do want to lose, but I also want to go slow and steady and learn my body and its needs along the way.
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 198
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 200.00

    Day 20: Sun, 6/28:199.00 - I'm shooting for the same goal as last week. At least this week I am starting off better than I did last week. Back in onderland….again, and down a little from that 199.8 I logged previously. I'm happy about that. I'm just frustrated with fluctuating back into the 200's. I did REALLY well yesterday. I weighed, measured, and logged all of my food today.
    Day 21: Mon, 6/29: 197.8 say WHAAAA?!?! Yeah, I had to weigh myself twice because I couldn’t believe it 😂 I decided to change things up a bit and get back into intermittent fasting eating between noon and 6. Days I work and can’t get to the gym, restrict my calories between 1200-1300. After 2 days of putting this plan into action I finally see the numbers move down again!
    Day 22: Tues, 6/30: 196.6 🥳 I could get used to this!!

    Day 100 June 08 - 151.7
    Total: 2.7 pounds lost in 100 days. Argh, all of that hard work for such a piddly result.
    200 days = 6.4 - So hopefully at least 10 pounds per year. This will take forever!!
    I like to see a monthly total usually, but will try this weekly idea. More accountability : - )
    I am going to keep track of my leftover calories this time, based on 1200 calories consumed per day.

    Weeks 1, 2, & 3
    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!!! Yippee Yahoo!!

    Great to see your scale move @deepwoodslady Keep it up.
    Maybe small snacks instead of big meals and burning lots of extra calories is sustainable for you.
    And also maybe a better way to keep your glucose in check (the frequent healthy snacks portion)

    I have definitely had to change my eating to drop pounds, now it is a habit. If I make a sandwich I eat half, wrap the other half to eat the next day. It takes 20 minutes to feel full, so I just wait instead of continuing to eat.

    Day 6: Sun, 6/14: 203.8 - worked a 12hr shift yesterday. Didn't eat horribly, but could've been better. I didn't workout either. Today's focus: weighing and measuring food logged, and walking during downtime at work.
    Day 7: Mon, 6/15: 200.0 I lost 3lbs overnight 😮 however, I know this was because I drank a lot of water yesterday and TOM started. But, I’ll take it! I was holding on to that 203 foot over a week now.
    Day 8: Tues, 6/16: 201.2 - I ran 7 miles yesterday, and I can visibly see that I have some swelling around my knees and left ankle. This is common for me after a long run, and I am certain this is what caused the slight gain. I work 2 12hour shifts in a row the next couple of days, so no working out. I am sure this number will come back down after 2 rest days.
    Day 9: Wed, 6/17: 202.4 trying not to get discouraged. I didn’t log this in time because I had 0 sleep that night and I had to travel for work today. I’ll just have to keep pushing though.
    Day 10: Thurs, 6/18: 201.2 heading back in the right direction. Oddly enough, yesterday sucked for nutrition, and I hadn’t worked out for 2 days. Today, one of my favorite classes is back at the Y, and I plan to be there! I have off work until Tuesday, and plan to spend the next few days with a heavy focus on nutrition and solid workouts.
    Day 11: Fri, 6/19: 200.00!!!! I honestly doubted my body would get here. It likes to hold onto weight, but aside from my days at work, I’ve been working out hard! It went up after my last 200 weigh in the other day and I thought for sure I’d continue that trend. Yesterday was arm day, and I lifted for 50min before hopping on the treadmill for another 50. Usually the day after I lift or do a long run, I gain at least 1-2lbs. I’m excited to keep going!
    Day 12: Sat, 6/20: 199.8 BOOYA!!
    2nd Week Goal Weight: 200.00
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 199.8

    Day 13: Sun, 6/21: 202.4 yesterday I didn’t workout, and took the man to Texas Roadhouse for an early Father’s Day supper. Damn you cinnamon sugar butter and rolls 😂
    Day 14: Mon, 6/22: 201.2 spent yesterday at the lake with the man’s family. It was a horrible eating day, but we really had a nice day so trying not to be hard on myself. Woke up this morning with horrible vertigo. Like hold on to the wall kind of dizzy. Not feeling well at all.
    Day 15: Tues, 6/23: Didn’t weigh, still wasn’t feeling well ☹️
    Day 16: Wed, 6/24: 202.4 😒 moving in the wrong direction. I haven’t worked out since Friday- traveling for work
    Day 17: Thurs, 6/25: 201.2 still not happy with where I’m at, but I’m feeling so much better. It’s going to be a double workout day today. 45 minutes of weights/45 minutes of jogging in the morning with my man. Then Zumba this evening. Hoping I can still get on track for 198
    Day 18: Fri, 6/26: I could've sworn I recorded my weight for Friday, but I must've forgot to come here and log it! I was at 201.2 Still. I did get a workout in yesterday morning, but I did not end up going to Zumba. I have had pain in my left knee and need to listen to my body.
    Day 19: Sat, 6/27: 200.00.... *sigh* I didn't hit the 198 I had so hoped for. It was a rough week though, starting off with eating out, then vertigo and I was horrible about logging my food. However, I did workout more, and I am getting stronger when I lift, so I am happy with that. I will continue to push for 198 next week. I am also modifying my end date. I am realizing now that my original goal was pretty steep given that I would have 14 weeks to lose 40ish pounds. I do want to lose, but I also want to go slow and steady and learn my body and its needs along the way.
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 198
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 200.00

    Day 20: Sun, 6/28:199.00 - I'm shooting for the same goal as last week. At least this week I am starting off better than I did last week. Back in onderland….again, and down a little from that 199.8 I logged previously. I'm happy about that. I'm just frustrated with fluctuating back into the 200's. I did REALLY well yesterday. I weighed, measured, and logged all of my food today.
    Day 21: Mon, 6/29: 197.8 say WHAAAA?!?! Yeah, I had to weigh myself twice because I couldn’t believe it 😂 I decided to change things up a bit and get back into intermittent fasting eating between noon and 6. Days I work and can’t get to the gym, restrict my calories between 1200-1300. After 2 days of putting this plan into action I finally see the numbers move down again!
    Day 22: Tues, 6/30: 196.6 🥳 I could get used to this!!
    Day 23: Wed, 7/1: 196.6 again. After weighing in these past couple weeks, I know that when I workout, I tend to gain weight. I’m glad I stayed the same. It was arm day yesterday, and I went harder than I ever have. I felt good and just wanted to keto lifting, so I cut back my cardio time. I traveled for work today, but I still did well with nutrition.

    Great to see your scale move @deepwoodslady Keep it up.
    Maybe small snacks instead of big meals and burning lots of extra calories is sustainable for you.
    And also maybe a better way to keep your glucose in check (the frequent healthy snacks portion)

    I have definitely had to change my eating to drop pounds, now it is a habit. If I make a sandwich I eat half, wrap the other half to eat the next day. It takes 20 minutes to feel full, so I just wait instead of continuing to eat.

    I totally agree about the small snacks vs large meals. It wasn’t until I changed up my eating habits last week with smaller snacks that I saw a change.

    @deepwoodslady it sounds like you may have unlocked the secret for yourself!

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ (Date) through (Date)
    My Name is Donna, Age 60. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA


    145320379.png


    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    ENDING WEIGHT YESTERDAY: 211.0
    Day 01 – 06/09 …..211.0….. Traveling today which will help get me out of the expected HOT day. So I do expect an increase on the scale tomorrow (water weight) but all will be okay. I’ll stay on top of it in the coming week. I am looking forward to some progress (finally)! Good luck everyone on this 100 !!!!
    Day 02 – 06/10 …..211.0….. I’m actually pleased with this after a very long day of travel (sitting & restaurants). Usually I just drive by a restaurant sign and gain a few pounds. It’s time to work my way down now!
    Day 03 – 06/11 …..211.0….. No change again. Unusual for me to hit a plateau at my higher weights. I don’t know if that is what is going on but I guess time will tell. dawnbgethealthy Congrats on hitting the 140’s. All that gardening and sacrifice is paying off (zumba too!) You continue to inspire!
    Day 04 – 06/12 …..209.6….. Whew! Working hard & its paying off. Not 100% the best choices on low carb foods, but lower calories and lots of movement! Keep it up Donna!
    Day 05 - 06/13 .…..209.0….. Okay then! I wasn’t perfect but I was mindful, even on such a busy day yesterday. The spring cleaning has been UnGodly awful but it has got to have an end somewhere soon! Today and tomorrow I work on painting a bedroom and prepping for new carpet. Just getting the furniture out and stored in the garage was a chore. Thank Goodness I had help!
    Day 06 – 06/14 …..208.1….. Working hard & sticking to plan. Yesterday was a very disciplined day. Calories burned 3218.
    Day 07 – 06/15 …..208.7 ….. Not the best food choices but kept the snacking under control. Ate bread for quick filling sandwiches and carbs don’t like me. Lots of hard work again yesterday. 3167 Calories burned. Not enough water or sleep though.
    Day 08 – 06/16.…..207.6….. I stayed away from the bread (mostly) and tried to grab & go fast but less carby things and it payed off. Slightly over 3000 calories burned so that was good. Work included gardening, rigorous cleaning and lots of walking and steps. Multiple home projects are going well. Dawnbgethealthy: Yes I have been burning more than my usual calories but don’t forget that I am a much bigger gal than you right now so my burn with each step is bigger. I can’t wait to be smaller again but I’m aware that the smaller we get, the less we burn with each activity, making it harder to lose the weight. You are there now but your weight is moving too. Let’s stay strong together! Even if it’s inch by inch instead of foot by foot, you are doing fantastic, staying dedicated and inspiring me for sure!
    Day 09 – 06/17 …..208.4….. I had a very serious and very embarrassing glucose drop while working with a handyman I hard for the heavy jobs around the house yesterday. I stuffed my face and recovered within 30 minutes so I could drive 20 miles round-trip to the hardware store. I ended over calorie & carb but less than a pound showed up on the scale. I hope it stops at that. Damn set-backs! Lack of willpower on some days is all the set-backs anyone ever needs. This glucose problem just plain ol’ sux!
    Day 10 – 06 /18 ….208.4….. Carpet is now installed. Now, to get the furniture back in and all the curtains back on the windows (after cleaning)! Another busy day ahead. Today I may try to finally log my food again. I think it will help keep me on track with portion sizes (which is where I am going wrong right now). A very hot day expected today (92 F). No AC so I am hoping that I can sweat off a good pound in what will feel like a sauna instead of a house!
    Day 11 – 06/19 …..208.4….. Holding steady but need to get this weight down. I appreciate all the concern & suggestions in regards to my glucose. It is scary when it happens and I do guzzle drinks and shovel in food (more than probably necessary) until it comes back up. In just moments, the whole day’s numbers can be ruined but I am slowly learning that the rest of my day should stay on point, even if I close out the day with numbers I am not happy with. I am getting better at NOT saying “well, today is blown so I may as well eat anything that I want”. Today I will aim for a bit more snacking (as suggested) of healthy foods that can help keep my sugar up. However, I usually start the day with my glucose too high and work at getting it down. Sometimes it just drops too quickly and to very low (and sometimes dangerous) levels so it is so challenging! Getting my weight back down is what will help the most. My medications are geared for a lower weight (not what I weight right now after the holiday gain and the corona gain). I just DON’T want to get into a medication change when I still feel I can get better numbers on the scale. I’m going to work as hard as possible to achieve my goals safely but surely. Thanks for all the support! It helps more than you know!
    Day 12 – 06/20 …..208.4….. What goes up must come down! Waiting as patiently as I can. I feel bloated and sticky from the heat. I definitely need more water to replenish and renew.
    Day 13 – 06 /21 .….208.3….. Ugg!
    Day 14 – 06/22 …..208.2….. As long as it keeps moving downward, I guess I’ll be happy. It’s hard not being greedy. I would rather see whole numbers and not fractions for losses!
    Day 15 – 06/23 …..209.8….. Two slices of pizza while finally being able to dine-in somewhere. A pound and a half later, I’m still wondering if it was worth it. I will stay strict and strong today and inch this number back down. Defeat is not an option.
    Day 16 – 06/24 …..209.1 …..
    Day 17 - 06 /25 …..208.5…..Working it back down.
    Day 18 – 06 /26 …. 208.5….. Maintaining was not exactly the goal but I am happy for no gain after the ice cream my part-time neighbor brought over. Trying to keep it honest and on track today. So far, so good!
    Day 19 – 06/27 …..208.5…..
    Day 20 – 06/28 …..208.8….. Hot dogs with buns, chili & ketchup. Fast cook, grab & go food on a busy Saturday. Carbs will always be my enemy.
    Day 21 – 06 /29 ….208.8…..
    Day 22 – 06/30 …..207.9….. That’s better but I am doubting it will stick because my calories were very low yesterday and my calorie burn very high. Not my typical day. However, I’ll take what I can get, even if it’s just incentive by seeing smaller numbers on the scale.

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

    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 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:
    The one ending February 29 - Total loss over 100 days: 3.7 pounds
    This last one:
    Day 1 March 01 - 154.4
    Day 100 June 08 - 151.7
    Total: 2.7 pounds lost in 100 days. Argh, all of that hard work for such a piddly result.
    200 days = 6.4 - So hopefully at least 10 pounds per year. This will take forever!!

    I like to see a monthly total usually, but will try this weekly idea. More accountability : - )
    I am going to keep track of my leftover calories this time, based on 1200 calories consumed per day.

    Weeks 1, 2, & 3
    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:
    Day 26: Sat, 7/4:
    4th Week Goal Weight: 148.3
    4th Week Actual Weight:

    @Zoomie402
    Why do you think that workouts cause weight gain, scientifically? Drinking more water? Body turning on a mechanism trying to hold on to fat?
    I think in the long run that building muscle is probably a good thing, because muscle burns fat right?
    This weight loss journey is so tough!

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ (Date) through (Date)
    My Name is Donna, Age 60. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    ENDING WEIGHT YESTERDAY: 211.0
    Day 01 – 06/09 …..211.0….. Traveling today which will help get me out of the expected HOT day. So I do expect an increase on the scale tomorrow (water weight) but all will be okay. I’ll stay on top of it in the coming week. I am looking forward to some progress (finally)! Good luck everyone on this 100 !!!!
    Day 02 – 06/10 …..211.0….. I’m actually pleased with this after a very long day of travel (sitting & restaurants). Usually I just drive by a restaurant sign and gain a few pounds. It’s time to work my way down now!
    Day 03 – 06/11 …..211.0….. No change again. Unusual for me to hit a plateau at my higher weights. I don’t know if that is what is going on but I guess time will tell. dawnbgethealthy Congrats on hitting the 140’s. All that gardening and sacrifice is paying off (zumba too!) You continue to inspire!
    Day 04 – 06/12 …..209.6….. Whew! Working hard & its paying off. Not 100% the best choices on low carb foods, but lower calories and lots of movement! Keep it up Donna!
    Day 05 - 06/13 .…..209.0….. Okay then! I wasn’t perfect but I was mindful, even on such a busy day yesterday. The spring cleaning has been UnGodly awful but it has got to have an end somewhere soon! Today and tomorrow I work on painting a bedroom and prepping for new carpet. Just getting the furniture out and stored in the garage was a chore. Thank Goodness I had help!
    Day 06 – 06/14 …..208.1….. Working hard & sticking to plan. Yesterday was a very disciplined day. Calories burned 3218.
    Day 07 – 06/15 …..208.7 ….. Not the best food choices but kept the snacking under control. Ate bread for quick filling sandwiches and carbs don’t like me. Lots of hard work again yesterday. 3167 Calories burned. Not enough water or sleep though.
    Day 08 – 06/16.…..207.6….. I stayed away from the bread (mostly) and tried to grab & go fast but less carby things and it payed off. Slightly over 3000 calories burned so that was good. Work included gardening, rigorous cleaning and lots of walking and steps. Multiple home projects are going well. Dawnbgethealthy: Yes I have been burning more than my usual calories but don’t forget that I am a much bigger gal than you right now so my burn with each step is bigger. I can’t wait to be smaller again but I’m aware that the smaller we get, the less we burn with each activity, making it harder to lose the weight. You are there now but your weight is moving too. Let’s stay strong together! Even if it’s inch by inch instead of foot by foot, you are doing fantastic, staying dedicated and inspiring me for sure!
    Day 09 – 06/17 …..208.4….. I had a very serious and very embarrassing glucose drop while working with a handyman I hard for the heavy jobs around the house yesterday. I stuffed my face and recovered within 30 minutes so I could drive 20 miles round-trip to the hardware store. I ended over calorie & carb but less than a pound showed up on the scale. I hope it stops at that. Damn set-backs! Lack of willpower on some days is all the set-backs anyone ever needs. This glucose problem just plain ol’ sux!
    Day 10 – 06 /18 ….208.4….. Carpet is now installed. Now, to get the furniture back in and all the curtains back on the windows (after cleaning)! Another busy day ahead. Today I may try to finally log my food again. I think it will help keep me on track with portion sizes (which is where I am going wrong right now). A very hot day expected today (92 F). No AC so I am hoping that I can sweat off a good pound in what will feel like a sauna instead of a house!
    Day 11 – 06/19 …..208.4….. Holding steady but need to get this weight down. I appreciate all the concern & suggestions in regards to my glucose. It is scary when it happens and I do guzzle drinks and shovel in food (more than probably necessary) until it comes back up. In just moments, the whole day’s numbers can be ruined but I am slowly learning that the rest of my day should stay on point, even if I close out the day with numbers I am not happy with. I am getting better at NOT saying “well, today is blown so I may as well eat anything that I want”. Today I will aim for a bit more snacking (as suggested) of healthy foods that can help keep my sugar up. However, I usually start the day with my glucose too high and work at getting it down. Sometimes it just drops too quickly and to very low (and sometimes dangerous) levels so it is so challenging! Getting my weight back down is what will help the most. My medications are geared for a lower weight (not what I weight right now after the holiday gain and the corona gain). I just DON’T want to get into a medication change when I still feel I can get better numbers on the scale. I’m going to work as hard as possible to achieve my goals safely but surely. Thanks for all the support! It helps more than you know!
    Day 12 – 06/20 …..208.4….. What goes up must come down! Waiting as patiently as I can. I feel bloated and sticky from the heat. I definitely need more water to replenish and renew.
    Day 13 – 06 /21 .….208.3….. Ugg!
    Day 14 – 06/22 …..208.2….. As long as it keeps moving downward, I guess I’ll be happy. It’s hard not being greedy. I would rather see whole numbers and not fractions for losses!
    Day 15 – 06/23 …..209.8….. Two slices of pizza while finally being able to dine-in somewhere. A pound and a half later, I’m still wondering if it was worth it. I will stay strict and strong today and inch this number back down. Defeat is not an option.
    Day 16 – 06/24 …..209.1 …..
    Day 17 - 06 /25 …..208.5…..Working it back down.
    Day 18 – 06 /26 …. 208.5….. Maintaining was not exactly the goal but I am happy for no gain after the ice cream my part-time neighbor brought over. Trying to keep it honest and on track today. So far, so good!
    Day 19 – 06/27 …..208.5…..
    Day 20 – 06/28 …..208.8….. Hot dogs with buns, chili & ketchup. Fast cook, grab & go food on a busy Saturday. Carbs will always be my enemy.
    Day 21 – 06 /29 ….208.8…..
    Day 22 – 06/30 …..207.9….. That’s better but I am doubting it will stick because my calories were very low yesterday and my calorie burn very high. Not my typical day. However, I’ll take what I can get, even if it’s just incentive by seeing smaller numbers on the scale.

    @Zoomie402
    Why do you think that workouts cause weight gain, scientifically? Drinking more water? Body turning on a mechanism trying to hold on to fat?
    I think in the long run that building muscle is probably a good thing, because muscle burns fat right?
    This weight loss journey is so tough!

    You know, I really don't know why. I've heard so many different thoughts, theories and opinions on it, that it's hard to know why exactly. Personally, I think it's probably because I retain water through torn muscle fibers. It's certainly not enough to be noticeable. For instance, I don't feel the same retaining/gaining a lb from eating salty foods vs working out. When I workout I do feel better and actually feel less bloated contradictory to what the scale says. I'm just glad I'm seeing the trend and know what to expect. Then I don't feel so bad working hard and seeing a gain.
