My Name is Donna. I am 60 years old and I live in the Midwest USA. I am 5’ 5” tall. My relapse in my weight loss journey started last November (2019) so I am here to make sure my situation does not get worse as we enter another season that is laden with many food-filled holidays. Most challenges weigh daily or weekly. I will experiment with weighing intermittently during this challenge.
My highest weight: 253
Highest weight on MFP: 235
Weight on Aug 20, 2020 (Challenge start): 209.5
Goal: 194.5 by January 1st 2021
I am starting this challenge late.
October 18: 208.2 My weight went up overnight. Too much bread.
October 21: 206.2 Wow! Proud of my changes but it will likely level off soon on my scale.
October 27: 210.4 Travel Yesterday. I wasn’t going to post today but I just want to face my truth. I also want to share that the struggle is real. We are in this together folks! Today I will try for a great healthy day!
November 3: 207.6 Better than last time but I am still not making the best choices.
November 5: 206.6 Happy with the downward trend. Let’s hope I can keep my fat trap shut and only open it for healthy food!
November 15: 208.6 The path is filled with many ups & downs and unexpected curves. Just sharing one of mine. You are not alone. The journey continues…..
November 20: 208.4 I am moving out of my home today and handing over the keys to my two businesses that I own. Going into early retirement and am nervous but excited. Watching my diet will be hard in the coming weeks of organizing, unpacking and returning to train the new owners. But I should get in a lot of movement. I hope to have life become normal again before the Christmas holidays.
November 23: 207.2 That’s better but travel today will be sure to bring some water retention, some bloat and some gain due to food and inactivity in the car. I’ll will try to make good choices and get in extra movement in the coming days.
November 30: 207.2 I managed to maintain over Thanksgiving week with a few ups & downs along the way. Yay! I am happy to start the Season without having too much damage so far! I hope this challenge will keep me more accountable during the most difficult and challenging time of year for me (when I usually begin my downward spiral of gaining)!
December 06: 203.4 I am very happy about this. Normally during this time I am beginning my horrible bout of Holiday Weight Gain. I hope I can keep up the momentum.
December 14: 203.4 Up & down since the last post. Trying to finish less than the challenge start even throughout the holidays. That would be a first for me!

Had a strange week. I gained 6lbs in one day. And then lost it all in 3 days. I am not going to hit my target. But going to try to lower my weight the next 2 weeks.
