    @aFit50 Glad to hear you fasting while working out experiences. I've only done this the last two days, so not enough to share my thoughts yet. I usually IF 16:8, but because of my vacation and gym reopening, I lost another hour or so of the eating window as I don't eat after 7 p.m. Next week, I'm back to working from home (WFH) so I'll need to rework my workout schedule again. I'm thinking a fasted 2.5 mile morning walk and the gym in the evening....hmmm, not sure. 🤔🙂

    Hope you see good results! Definitely keep us posted!

    Happy Belated Birthday!!! @Shortgirlrunning

    NYC, 54, 5'9" | GW: 170-180 < 25% BF | HW: 278 | SW: 225.4
    Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th. ~ Julie Andrews
    R115: 225.9 (+0.5)
    R116: 222.1 (-3.3)
    R117: 218.8 (-3.3)
    R118: ????
    R118 Goals: 9-12K steps daily / strength training 5 days / IF 16:8 4-6 Days / 2-3 meals, no snacks 7 of 10

    06/25: 218.8
    06/26: 218.5 -- set new step record yesterday (17,188 - yeah baby!) but its all hands on deck today. Glued to my desk with no relief in sight! They'll be no avoiding sitting on my tuckas way too much today ....
    06/27: DNW -- (less than 2K steps yesterday!) woke feeling a bit bloated from too much takeout, but the goal is to match or beat my step record today. Already have 9,000 steps in, about to do a TaeBo weighted workout and plan on breaking fast with some salad, scallops and pesto potatoes when I'm done.
    06/28: 216.9 ~ didn't match steps, but was more than 10K so happy about that! Corralled into working additional hours and just want to lounge around like a cat in the sun today. No plans at all.
    06/29: DNW -- (9,327 steps)
    06/30: 216.6 (worked 12 hours; 8,118 steps)

    07/01: 215.0 -- (lost a total of 9.6 lbs and 3.8 inches in June)

    07/02: 215.4 -- totally ok with this, no hugs necessary (9,899 steps and massive calorie burn)

    07/03: 214.7 -- Hopeful, but not realistic I'll hold on to it. They'll be some restraint, but I fully intend to enjoy all opportunities presenting themselves this weekend! No work, worries, counting steps or even thinking about weighing til Sunday. #MentalHealthDays ~~ #80/20Rule ~~ (ended 5,206 steps / 1,371 cals burned / 1,757 consumed)

    OK ~ couldn't keep myself from counting, lol

    07/04: DNW -- ended 8,293 steps / 1,967 calories consumed / 2,545 cals burned (MFP macros in the red, but according to GoogleFit ~ still a good day. no regrets)

    07/05: DNW -- drinking lots of water today to combat all the extra fat, sugar and sodium since Friday. More grilling, fish and chicken frying on the agenda today for the kids ~ but will mix it up with some salad. Will also keep moving, stretching and toning in tiny bursts as much as possible so not worried what the scale says tomorrow.

    Hope you've all had a good weekend! See ya next round.

    7/2 118.5 had a high carb drink yesterday evening. Our OMAD has crept to 5 or later. Today it will be around 3 so I can go meet my gal pals and DH can go to a meeting. Virtual doctor appointment yesterday was great. My cholesterol has AGAIN improved while eating LCHF. We are both slightly anemic from giving blood donation 2 weeks earlier. Who knew it it could take 2-3 MONTHS to get your hemoglobin back up at our age!?! So adding iron to the pill boxes! He also wants me to take gabapentin to see if it helps my leg (sciatica) and that concerns me because it can cause weight gain.


    @quiltingjaine Yikes!!!! I did not know that Gabapentin caused weight gain! I take 300 mg 3 times daily for a total of 900 mg. I take it for restless leg syndrome. I have been on my feet and on the go for so many years straight that my legs don't know how to stop. Without it, I would not even be able to get the 3-4 hours of sleep I get now. It also helps with my occasional diabetic neuropathy. I knew that my cancer pill caused weight gain but I never knew about the Gabapentin! Sometimes it just seems like an uphill battle. All I can do is soldier on!

    Hi @deepwoodslady I have restless leg syndrome periodically but not often enough for meds so this simple trick I've used in the past may not work for you. When I do have it, it's horrible and there is no way to sleep, much less even stay in bed. I read about this technique - I think in Prevention, not sure - but you put your back against the wall squatted down like you are sitting in a chair and you stay there until you can't hold it any longer because your legs are so tired. That's the key, your legs almost burn from holding it. I know it sounds counterintuitive but it works for me every time. I've been up doing it many times at 3AM. Again, with yours being so bad that you needs meds, this may not work for you, but thought I would suggest if it happened to give you any relief.

    Current start weight: 161.0
    Goal weight: 130

    Day/Weight/Comment

    06/30 161.0 I've been eating clean for two days. My biggest challenge is drinking water.

    07/01 160.6 Yesterday I had a rest day at the beach (recovering from 2 consecutive days of cardio sculpt with my personal trainer via zoom). Today I hope to make sure that any weight loss is not due to dehydration and I'll make sure to get some yoga and walking in.

    07/02 160.4 I have a training session with my trainer via zoom today. 4,918 steps

    07/03 160.8 This could be because I drank so much water during my workout. I'm ok with it. I also had to taste the jam I was making. You know. Strawberry jam with Grand Marnier. Only 4,181 steps and a couple of glasses of wine.

    07/04 160.0 Happy Independence Day! I'm surprised by any loss today because yesterday I felt like crap. No alcohol for me today because I have to train tomorrow.

    07/05 161.2 I don't believe this number. Going 500 calories over does not equal 1.2 pounds. What-ever. Strength training session today via zoom. I ordered my NordicTrack s22i because I miss spinning and need the cardio workout. I think it's time to cancel the gym membership. I don't think we're going back any time soon.

    Looking forward to round 119!

    5’7" Age 40's
    Original start weight: 178 lbs (Oct. 10, 2019)
    Goal this round: loose and stay under 160.0.

    Ultimate goal 145 lbs.

    End of round 117 6/25= 162.0 lbs

    Day/Weight/Comment

    6/26 159.4lbs. Back to counting calories, now just need to start my back exercises again. So much to do outside that I forget.

    6/27 160.8 lbs Unexpected quests in the evening led to campfire, pizza, smores and a few beers. Ugh, way over on calories because I wasn't expecting to even eat in the evening. But a great time. I always thought it was harder to keep weight off in the winter but it is summer for me.

    6/28 158.9 lbs So when I first weighed the scale was actually 20 lbs less, I have an old house and the wooden floor is wavy in spots, goodness get one board over and you loose weight, who needs a diet. LOL Just find the weight you like and weigh there.

    6/29 DNW

    6/30 160.8lbs ugh, I do good all day until evening time, then I crave everything.

    7/1 161.0 lbs not sure for the gain, calories were under but some were from beer with friends again unexpectedly.

    7/2 157.8 lbs Going to town with friends for grocery shopping hoping to hold unto some of this.

    7/3. 157.0 lbs

    7/4 DNW

    7/5 157.8 lbs Not to bad for it being the fourth yesterday.

    Loss of 4.2 lbs for the round and am below 160. Hoping to stay there all next round.

    @quiltingjaine Yikes!!!! I did not know that Gabapentin caused weight gain! I take 300 mg 3 times daily for a total of 900 mg. I take it for restless leg syndrome. I have been on my feet and on the go for so many years straight that my legs don't know how to stop. Without it, I would not even be able to get the 3-4 hours of sleep I get now. It also helps with my occasional diabetic neuropathy. I knew that my cancer pill caused weight gain but I never knew about the Gabapentin! Sometimes it just seems like an uphill battle. All I can do is soldier on!

    Hi @deepwoodslady I have restless leg syndrome periodically but not often enough for meds so this simple trick I've used in the past may not work for you. When I do have it, it's horrible and there is no way to sleep, much less even stay in bed. I read about this technique - I think in Prevention, not sure - but you put your back against the wall squatted down like you are sitting in a chair and you stay there until you can't hold it any longer because your legs are so tired. That's the key, your legs almost burn from holding it. I know it sounds counterintuitive but it works for me every time. I've been up doing it many times at 3AM. Again, with yours being so bad that you needs meds, this may not work for you, but thought I would suggest if it happened to give you any relief.

    I’ve struggled with this too, yet not enough for meds. Maybe not even as much as y’all do. But a hot bath has always helped me. I’ve gotten up many times in the middle of the night to go draw hot bath water. Really helps me. Also, I pull my toes as far toward my knees as I can and hold it as long as I can. My “jitters” are in my calf. Don’t know if that’s true of everyone who gets it.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    06/25 …..208.5….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
    06/26 …..208.5 ….. Good luck this round everyone! I am hoping to make a bigger difference on the scale this time. A whole pound (or more) would be nice!

    06/27 …..208.5 ….. Making decent choices but not logging like I should. Still no sleep or downtime. Very tired.

    06/28 …..208.8 ….. I ate the two buns on the hot dogs. Carbs, carbs, carbs.

    06/29 …..208.8 ….. Another L..O..N..G day. Barely getting this documented before midnight!

    06/30 …..207.9 ….. Finally a bit of a dramatic drop on the scale for me. More snacking and grazing than eating yesterday due to time constraints so I hope this sticks!

    07/01 …..207.9 …..

    07/02 …..208.0 ….. Normal fluctuation and readjustment to yesterday’s loss.

    07/03 …..207.9 …..

    07/04 …..207.9 …..

    07/05 …..207.8 ….. My goal is to lose anything possible. My loss is 0.7 lbs so I will take it and strive to do even better next round.
