Goal: to lose 2 kg before October
I'm way behind with this goal as I had a few celebrations at the beginning of September and ate too much the cake etc. I put nearly a 1kg back on but I've lost it again so hopefully I can stay focused and still achieve my goal
Total lost (since July 27th) 3.20kg 😁👍🎉7
Joining this group to boost my restart.
09/17. 141.4. Beginning
Didn't check in yesterday, I normally do this in the morning but I had a meeting and then missed my normal time, and then forgot!
Female, 28, 159cm
Rounds Start: 73.8
Round 125: 73.3 (-0.5)
09/14 - 73.8 - Because of course it jumps up to what it was a week ago. This is why I'm glad I weigh every day, because it would look like I've not lost anything this last week, but I know that this is just a fluctuation up. And I know why too. Yesterday was a maintenance day. I knew it was going to be a maintenance day. I banked calories for it to be a maintenance day. It still feels wrong to allow my numbers go into the red. Ah well. Cider at lunch (first time I've drunk alcohol for ages, damn it was good), went out for lunch (nice burger and chips), lots of cheese for dinner and topped it off with a big chocolate cookie. CI was slightly above CO so not quite a true maintenance day, but considering my deficit for the week, I'm still pretty happy with it all and all. And I didn't eat all of my lunch because it was there. When I was full, I stopped nibbling at the chips and left them.
09/15 - 74.0 - Now you can just stop it. My legs are killing me. Judo yesterday killed me. My legs were still kind of hurting going into the session left over from Saturday, and then what did we do during the circuits? More flipping frog jumps. Aaaaah! It's fine, I don't need to use my legs! And I think I've pulled my hamstring because I am so close to getting left side splits flat to the floor (something I've not been able to do since I was a about 10), so I pushed it a little too much trying to get there, I did make it though, but only for a second, and it hurt so maybe a little bit longer on that one. So yeah, fluid retention is strong today. Hopefully we'll see a drop tomorrow back to something a little more sensible.
09/16 - 74.4 - Why? Seriously though, why?
09/17 - 73.8 - Right, well at least that better. Lets see if this trend continues. Yesterday was hard, I am getting really hungry at the moment (lead up to my period week, I think) and I decided to work from home where all the food was available. But managed to keep it at bay and eat fairly sensible. Dinner was somewhat disappointing as I'd bought some lean cut pork sausages with a lower calorie count. But the amount of calorie difference was no where near enough to make up for the fact that they were just not as nice a normal sausages. And they shrank up quite small, so two wasn't really quite enough, and at that point is the sausage just less calories because there's less of it than other brands. Well whatever, not going to be going for that again.

09/14 - walking 5k.
09/15 - weigh day 96.7! Mini GW1 accomplished. Now just need to keep it in the 96.x till the end of the challenge. Not sure if it will work since it must be water fluctuations.
09/16 - raining day, but you would be surprised how many steps you can get in the supermarket It was a bit too crowded but we tried to go in and out. 5K steps and groceries are in!
09/17 - It is surprisingly hard to combat curiosity and *not* get on the scale every day. It has been to discouraging before so I am trying something new. 2 more mornings to go! Better weather today so will try to compensate for yesterday slacking day
09/19 -weigh day

Round 123 - 124: 2.7kg loss
Round 125: 0.8kg loss
Happy that the drop from yesterday has held so far. I spent the weekend dealing with some of the responsibilities on my plate, so that has helped my stress levels a bit.
I have moved to an IF 16:8 model, as I am finding if I have an early breakfast, then I am more hungry throughout the day. Still keeping it low carb as well, which really helps prevent snacking.
I'm finally settling into some good habits, and maintaining this new lifestyle is becoming easier. My husband is supportive, but still offers me treats that are high carb, which I medically need to control. He will get there at some point, but it is a test of my new habits.
Bounce, bounce, bounce. It will go down again. I just need to be patient. I'm going to try some low carb chocolate for dessert tonight. It will either work, or it won't.

Round 125 EW: 152.2:
We thoroughly enjoyed our celebration day on the 12th. Phone calls and messages, and a garden visit from DED and her dogs. 💦 Water is up over 5% (having an analytical scale is very reassuring) which will go in a day or two. This is what maintenance is all about. The occasional indulgent day does little harm in the long run.

THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
REMINDERS One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
- Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
- A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
- Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
- The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
- Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
- The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
- When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
- Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.

9/14: 128.8..binged on Saturday and worked out like crazy yesterday to counter it. So sore today so going to try to get my 10,000 steps in and do a 30 minute body weight workout. I use CocoLime Fitness since I have chronic conditions.
09/15: 129.2...yesterday I put all my calories into the mfp and was trying so hard to stick to them but at the end of the night, I was so hungry and nauseous I ate a bigger later snack. Need to try harder today to stick to what I input in my calorie diary but at least my last snack was healthy plain oatmeal. I didn’t eat any junk yesterday but I still feel I eat too much healthy food I guess.
09/16...129.2 I don’t think I will ever loose these last few pounds again because I eat too much. I exercise every day for 1-2 hours either walking or doing a video but I know I probably eat too many calories. They are all one ingredient and super healthy foods but I hate being hungry after battling multiple eating disorders over the last 20 years. I get a little hungry and I panic and need to eat. It is that time of the month so hopefully that is adding a pound or so.
09/17...128.6 Glad to see it going down instead of up. Have to keep trying.

🎯Mini Goal: 225 I’ll no longer be morbidly obese
Date – Morning weigh in – Previous day summary:
09/14 DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 Well the roofers did not finish so we are still at the camp and I don’t have an ending weight for R125 nor a starting weight for R126. But I’m checking in! Walked 3+ miles yesterday morning, tracked food.
09/15 227.7 Finally stepped on the scale. I’m solidly in the 20s and closer to my mini goal. First time in many years I did not gain weight at the camp! Down 1.6 lbs. Yesterday long day in the car 5 hrs returning from the camp, grocery shopping, etc. But tracked, didn’t stop for fast food, drank a ton of water, AF and went on an evening 1+ mile walk.
09/16 227.5 3 mile walk, bike, hand weights, tracked food, 2 glasses of wine. Lots of time spent on reflection, mini goals, habits, and not returning back up to the 230s or 240s like I have in the past.
09/17 227.0 3 mile walk, tracked food, AF. DH had a craving for fried chicken. Popeyes Chicken Breast but tossed the biscuits in the trash immediately then cooked my own green beans as a side and did not break my calorie or carb goals for the day. Bye Bye 18 pounds! I’m not losing weight. I’m getting rid of it with no intention of finding it again.9

Day, Weight, Comment
09/14 - 159.2
09/15 - 155.0
09/16 - 154.3
09/17 - 154.1 - I'll take any drop I can get. I'm up earlier than normal by an hour since I have to drive into work today so I'm really surprised at this. No workout unless I can squeeze it in somehow tonight. Not sure how training will be so not sure if I'll hit step goal, especially if its all classroom stuff.
Previous Day's Comments09/14 - This is what lactose and upset stomach looks like on me. I ordered soy but they gave me milk. Didn't know until late last night and by then taking my lactose pills didn't do much as it was too long after eating. Woke up with sharp pain in my belly. Don't feel bloated but do feel very heavy in general and a tad bit nauseous. Flushing with water and trying to fast longer today to overcome this and hope my nausea goes away. Glad this is the start of a round so I have plenty of time to bounce back
09/15 - Oh so thankful!!! I'm below my ending weight and my lactose bump is gone! I expected it to take 2 days at least so I'm super duper happy my work paid off yesterday. The best part is that yesterday I wasn't that good, just good enough to not feel bad about my day. Goes to show you don't have to be perfect, you just have to be better than before. I might just keep that in mind going forward. The only person I'm competing against is myself and every day I just have to be better than I was the day before.
09/16 - Some more bloat drop. I feel so might lighter and my belly is much flatter today. Its not the most debloated I could get, but the closest I'll get while eating as a family (dinner's veggies were grilled in melted butter- not the healthiest but oh so delicious). I'm willing to make those sacrifices, though, because I know its possible to still feel good without being absolutely perfect and still be able to enjoy a family dinner. Water was good yesterday. Didn't get a walk in with work but aiming for one this morning once it lightens up a bit. So weird to be awake when its so dark now that days are shorter and shorter. Makes getting my walk in harder unless I'm willing to walk in the dark either in the morning or in the evening. Need to stick to my guns about it and get it done
Starting weight 179lbs

Round 125 170.0lbs
09/14 170.0lbs Four days at the same weight, I'm hoping for a drop soon. However, I'm weighing in an hour earlier than usual.
09/15 169.8lbs Just done half an hour of exercise. An even earlier weigh in as well, I've been meaning to do this for ages but didn't want to show an increased weight!
09/16 169.6 later weigh in but have not exercised yet so not too worried
09/17 169.8 late weigh in, no exercise yet. Not worried about 0.2lb
Good morning everybody, happy Thursday! It'll be a cool cloudy day here in NYC, perfect for jogging. Or at least that's what I'm telling myself!
SW: 248 (1/1/2020)
GW: 200 by 2021
Starting weight for this round: 224lb
Goal weight for this round: 222 lb
Goal activity this week: Lift/Resistance train 2+ times, jog+ 3 times.
09/14 Weight: 223.2, fasting blood glucose: 102.
09/15 Weight: 232.8, fbg 111.
09/16 Weight: 225.4.
09/17 Weight: 226. So I've gained 3 pounds in 3 days, which is pretty impressive! Given that I did not in fact eat 9000 calories in the last 72 hours, I can't really let it concern me. I will however be getting in some extra miles.
44, 6' trying to maintain at 150. Have to track here for accountability. More water, more low/0 calorie snacks when starving.
9/14 155.6 It's been a gradual up from my low of 150 in early June. Need to make getting back down to 150 more of a priority. I've been super active so that's not the problem. Tough 12 mile hike up to Mt Le Conte this weekend and riding quite a bit. It's adjusting to the smaller portions and getting comfortable with feeling hungry more.
9/15 156.2 I had a really rough day yesterday. Kids home schooling day was HARD. I comforted myself by eating. I felt bad. I'm paying for it today rightfully. I will try to remind myself of this and this feeling when I'm struggling again.
9/16 155.2 better. Staying the course. Insanely busy week this week and then vacation for a week. I won't be weighing but I'll try to be conscious of portions.
9/17 154.6 Keeping at it. Jumping with Frosty yesterday and a couple mile walk while the girl did gymnastics. Busy, busy9
OK Ready to try again
I got way off track last round, Trying not to be an emotional eater, I found myself craving a drink at the end of the day. I have never been much of a drinker. I could count on my fingers how many drinks I have in a year, so this was alarming. So I had a snack instead and within a couple of days all my old bad eating habits were back. I don't have a solution right now - but I have to keep trying. I have special needs adults in my family who depend on me to be there for them 24/7. I need my health.
09/14 215.6 another tough day - if DS2 does not get his act together by Friday -take his meds, have a shower etc doctor will 'form" him. I am still hoping it won't come to that - but also very scared that it will.
09/16 213.8 Happy with how fast I am regaining lost ground - (re-losing gained ground?) Taking the doggo on extra walks to help manage the stress.
09/17 213.4 not enough sleep last night - will have to work extra hard on the impulse control today.

09/15 - 144 - Hopefully, this is the end of my weekend bounce. Weight loss calories and extra water for the rest of the week.
09/16 - 144 - OK, I'm going to work on getting this down before the weekend.
09/17 - 143.5 - DH and I took a long walk starting from a newly discovered (to us) trailhead on the Ohio/Erie Canal towpath last night. We've walked along the towpath from many different trailheads, but somehow we missed the one that was closest to our house.

Day/Weight/Calories Previous Day/Snack Status/Comment
9/14 - 181.6 - 1596 - snack late in lieu of dinner - pear, Eng muffin w/cheese
Weird eating day yesterday as DH wanted pizza (veggie) for lunch. I kept my calories reasonable, but ate later than planned (wasnt hungry at supper time, but I was later). Probably same today with leftover pizza, but I’m planning my day better. @quiltingjaine, I’m reading Life in the Fasting Lane and am thinking of trying it. Actually no snacks between dinner (we eat early) and breakfast pretty much does it, I think. We shall see. Off for a walk.
9/15 - 182.8 - 1756 - snack 🍨
Today’s the day. Cutting refined carbs as much as possible, starting with a cheese omelette for breakfast instead of cereal. I had ice cream last night and savored it as my last indulgence until I drop at least 20 pounds. I’m making salmon salad for lunch — yummy with broccoli slaw. If I fill up on protein, fat, and veggies 🧀🥚🍳🥦🥕🥒🥬, I shouldn’t crave snacks later. This time I mean it. I feel ready, if that makes any sense. Also, I refinished a dresser over the weekend — got it cheap, banged up. Here it is now.
9/16 - 181.4 - 1086 - no snacks ⭐️
I had a good day yesterday. Now to rinse and repeat!
9/17 - 181 - 1278 - no snacks ⭐️
Two days in a row without snacking. Yay! I was really hungry last night watching a movie, but I held out. I know partly that’s trained hunger that will pass eventually. Onward!
I’m a 5’ 8”, 45 yo Mom of 2 young ones. The lockdown had me squeaking toward 200, so I knew I had to start taking better care of myself!

09/14 – 177.3 – A good start for the round! I got in my 3 goals yesterday – calories, steps and water
09/15 – 177.2 – Just a squeak down, but still in the right direction.
09/16 – 178.4 – I had an incredibly rough day yesterday and got take-out at the end of the day. I’m feeling better and time to get back on track.
09/17 – 178.4 – Still holding onto water from the take-out. I’m back to logging and stepping, but vacation is just around the corner. I won’t be weighing then but trying to we careful with what I eat.

A few years ago I weighed around 410 lbs, and I started walking everywhere and eventually lost 122 lbs.⬇️ However, I allowed life to get in the way of my weight-loss. Over the past two years I've stayed around 288 lbs, 😩 and I finally made the decision to complete my weight-loss journey, and joined this challenge. I have (83.2 lbs) to go to reach my ultimate goal as of today. 😄
We can achieve our goals together!! 🌟 We can do this. 😄
Highest Weight: 410?
Restart Weight: 288.
Ultimate Goal Weight: 198
Challenge Goal Weight: (1st- 285) (2nd- 281.2)
09/15: 283.6 (-4.4) I think the reason I lost so much, is that I've been in a lot of pain the last few days and haven't felt like eaten to much. I tend not to feel like eating anything when not feeling well. I do try to eat at least something.
09/16: 282.8 (-0.8) I thought the scale would show a gain, since I ate a little over my daily calorie goal yesterday. Especially, since I haven't eaten much the last few days. I'm really happy for a loss. 😄
09/17: 281.2 (-1.6) Yesterday, I stayed under my daily calorie goal of 1,500 by 30 calories. I'm happy that the weight is still coming off. 😄 .2 oz to go to reach my second goal. 🎉
Thank you @GrandmaJackie for this challenge, it's helping me to stay accountable.7
