    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. 60 year old female
    I live in South East British Columbia Canada
    MFP start date October 28.18 - SW 191
    Ultimate goal weight - 112 - 115

    My previous 3 rounds:
    The 1st one:
    Nov 22.19 ending February 29.20 – Start weight 158.1 EW 154.4 Total loss over 100 days: 3.7
    The 2nd one:
    March 01 - June 08.20 Start weight 154.4 EW 151.7 Total loss over 100 days 2.7 pounds
    The 3rd one:
    June 09 - September 16th Start weight 151.2 EW 142.3 Total loss over 100 days 8.9 pounds
    3 rounds of 100 days each total results = 15.3 pounds lost

    I started tracking my excess calories each day last round, those in the Green at the end of the tracking day. My results (based on 1200 calories per day) from 100 days were 78,627 - which over 100 days should lead to 7.86 pound loss, and I actually lost 8.9, so pretty good.

    Day 1: Thurs, 9/17: 141.7 - I expect to get a lot of activity on my trip, but today is a driving day so I will have a nice workout before I leave. 919 in the green

    Day 4: Sun 9/20 - 141.0 - My 60th birthday weight



    Day 88: Sun, 12/13: 138.1 - Indulged a bit. I have to be vigilant, but also need a cheat day here and there. Very easy to put on 2 pounds in 1 day, but it can take 2 weeks to lose it back sometimes. It is what it is. I will try to skate that off today : - ) 950 calories left over in the Green
    Day 89: Mon, 12/14: 137.4 - Only 10 more weigh days left of the 100! 804 in the Green
    Day 90: Tues, 12/15: 136.9 - Yay. I have hit this number before, glad to see it again. 984 in the Green
    Day 91: Wed, 12/16: 137.5 - Working hard to stay in the 130s. Skated on a lake yesterday. 210 in the Green
    Day 92: Thurs, 12/17: 136.9 - I was very tired and hungry all day yesterday, couldn't even get myself out for a skate. I ate more than usual. The scale seems to like it though. 993 in the Green
    Day 93: Fri, 12/18: 137.0 - Going to try to hold on to this, I have food and drink events going on within my "bubble" over the weekend. Too hard fought for to let it slip away. I will keep my activity (calories out) high. 777 in the Green.
    Day 94: Sat, 12/19: 135.9 - Lowest so far. Even if it is a fluctuation, nice to see that number. 434 in the Green

    14th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    14th Week Actual Weight: 135.9
    Excess Calories burned this week: 5152 - Enough to lose a pound

    Day 95 – 12/20: 136.2 - Had a tonne of activity, but also ate a bunch of stuff with 2 friends (in my bubble) and not sure that I got the things tracked perfectly after. I will be strict today, and accept what ever number I get tomorrow morning.
    Day 96 – 12/21:
    Day 97 – 12/22:
    Day 98 – 12/23:
    Day 99 – 12/24:
    Day 100 - 12/25:

    Excess Calories burned the final week:

    Challenge Starting Weight: 141.7

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ (Date) through (Date)

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


    STARTING WEIGHT: 211.3

    Day 01 – 09/17 ….210.8…..Very Pleased. This is a nice way to start! Good luck everyone!
    Day 02 – 09/18 ....210.6….. Happy Dance!
    Day 03 – 09/19 ….211.2….. canned soup with crackers. Too much sodium but had no time to cook yesterday.
    Day 04 – 09/20 ….210.8….. Better!
    Day 05 - 09/21 …..211.0….. not a bad little increase after movie night with son and some pizza.
    Day 06 – 09/22 …..210.8….. Traveled today so tomorrow will be pitiful. Going to get very diligent to knock it back into the atmosphere. No extra fat allowed to hang around here. Time to go!
    Day 07 – 09/23 …..212.0….. After travel. I will work on this today.
    Day 08 – 09/24 …..210.8….. Traveled again but kept it to one meal and a small snack and I was rewarded!
    Day 09 – 09/25 …..211.6….. I hate gaining when there is no apparent reason why. Yesterday was a pretty good day. However, there was not much movement due to all the special meetings I had. So today I will focus on more movement and cautiously go to the grocery store for more water (which is a little scary on a Friday in this small tourist town). Hydration may be key today. Flush, flush, flush.
    Day 10 – 09/26 …..211.4…..
    Day 11 – 09/27 …..211.2….. I am not getting where I want to be in a very healthy way. Even with the scale going down I am not super happy. I know I avoided meals yesterday and just ate too much junk. It may have been lower calories overall and it may have caused a decrease on the scale but it is all about healthy and sustainable. I vow to have a better day today. One day at a time, right?
    Day 12 – 09/28 …..209.8…..Yay!!! Better meals, a bit better movement. I just gotta watch those bad snacks!
    Day 13 – 09/29 …..210.0….. Just a simple fluctuation. I had a very well-balanced day yesterday. Low cal for sure.
    Day 14 – 09/30 …..211.0….. Chinese food yesterday with leftovers today. Still down a tad from the start.
    Weight Loss in September……………….. 0.3 lb LOSS
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..0.3 Loss


    Day 15 – 10/01 …..211.0…..I finished the last of the Chinese food. Now time for healthier and less sodium!
    Day 16 – 10/02 …..209.0….. Whoosh! Practiced some IF yesterday and tried to keep the calories low (AS THEY SHOULD BE) . I hope today will be another good day!
    Day 17 - 10/03 …..210.4….. I salted my low sodium veggie soup because it tasted sweet and then I cheated with some dessert when I could have just had the soup and called IT dessert! Lesson learned. However, I am still down 1.6 in the last 10 days which is better than I’ve done in awhile so I will try to keep up the momentum. I am hydrating a lot today to offset any bloat.
    Day 18 – 10/04 …..210.0….. Going back down, even with challenges. #nevergiveup
    Day 19 – 10/05 …..211.6….. I ate healthy yesterday but dinner was not until 11:00 pm (busy day). Lots of steps also so this is a shock! No TMI this morning so that doesn’t help. Very disappointing but not disrupting. Staying on track today.
    Day 20 – 10/06 …..209.4….. Whoosh!
    Day 21 – 10/07 …..209.6….. A good day yesterday so this is likely a normal fluctuation.
    Day 22 – 10/08 …..209.8….. Another good day. The slight fluctuation must be from no TMI (potty) x 2 days. Otherwise, all is well. Good choices are being made. Not too much movement due to a pretty yucky foot injury but otherwise, all is well.
    Day 23 – 10/09 …..209.6…..Slightly better but my snacks were cheats last night. Working to stop the midnight madness!
    Day 24 – 10/10 …..210.0…..Fish fry last night. Today I will be extra careful. I am going to go look at Dawn’s videos right now. Pretty exited!
    Day 25 – 10/11 …..209.2….. Yay!
    Day 26 – 10/12 …..208.6….. Artificially low? We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 27 – 10/13 …..208.6….. I see I posted my stats yesterday on the wrong challenge. I guess I was just excited! I traveled today so I am afraid of tomorrow’s numbers, but I will try to stay positive and tackle whatever mean ol’ number that scale may bring.
    Day 28 – 10/14 …..209.2….. I’m actually quite pleased with this. Sometimes carbs pack on 2-3 pounds from one travel meal! As a diabetic, I always eat when traveling. I am sure I will always choose those lovely foods not available in my little home town. However, changing habits in some way IS good so I am trying to resign myself to smaller portions. Also a lighter calorie/carb day the day after. No need to keep the extra ounces (on my hips) right?
    Day 29 – 10/15 …..208.4….. God is Good and He has always had my back. Today is the first step in some life-changing things I have been working on. It puts me one step closer to where I need to be in my personal and professional life. I hope everyone will smile with (and for) me today. As far as my weight goes, I am not counting every carb and calorie again, just yet, but I am tweaking and making some important changes on this particular path of my journey. When all my resolutions are here, I will be able to focus again. It will be before Christmas I hope. Thanks to everyone for their continued support. Down almost a whole pound overnight and a bit lower than my pre-travel weight! I am estatic!
    Day 30 – 10/16 …..208.2….. I’ll take it!
    Day 31 – 10/17 …..207.6….. I am trying to make a better difference everyday in my diet, movement and attitude. I’m not 100% yet, some personal things continue to hold me back in time and energy, but I’m on my way!
    Day 32 – 10/18 …..208.2….. I was very careful and got in some extra movement. I did have garlic bread (2 slices) so I guess I deserve this. I am still carefully watching portions (otherwise).
    Day 33 – 10/19 …..207.4….. I enjoyed a new Deep Dish Pizza place in my little rural town. It was very good. I ate ½ of what I would normally eat and saved the rest for my dinner. No snacks at TV time to make up for the carbs/calories. It really helped and my weight has moved down! I will make today a great day!
    Day 34 – 10/20 …..207.0…..I made a few bad choices but stopped temptation in it’s tracks and made the actual decision to make better one’s for the rest of the day. So glad I did!
    Day 35 – 10/21 …..206.2….. I’m actually patting myself on the back today. So proud I have continued my changes. Yesterday I danced to one song on my Alexa and I did one Fitness Marshall (Sour Candy) with Lady Gaga. It felt like a 20 minute workout so I am out of shape but it was fun. I always love watching him!
    Day 36 – 10/22 …..207.6…..Well that Sux! I guess grilled cheese & tomato soup is off the menu in the near future! Having chili-dogs at a local bar/restaurant today with a friend. I will have to work my whole dietary day around the pre-planned lunch. I need more movement and water today too.
    Day 37 – 10/23 …..206.8….. I could have done without the French silk pie, or could I? Still trending down so I must be diligent!
    Day 38 – 10/24 …..207.8….. Lucky Charms for dinner is a no-no.
    Day 39 – 10/25 …..208.2…..A horrid day of grab & go eating. In fact it has been that way for the past few days. I MUST find time to cook but its pretty hard to do when most of my time lately has been away from home on projects. Tomorrow I travel far & wide to pick up my car from transmission shop downstate. I won’t be home until late evening. More weight!
    Day 40 – 10/26 …..208.2….. Feeling like a loser right now without losing.
    Day 41 – 10/27 …..210.4….. After travel weight. Fall is trying to get to me again with the pre-snow (bad roads) travel rush and with the warm & toasty comfort food. Too cold to walk and all that jazz. Knowledge is power! Today will be a good day.
    Day 42 – 10/28 …..209.2….. Working it back down again. Cha-Cha!
    Day 43 – 10/29 …..207.9….. I don’t think I entirely deserve the nice drop on the scale but I’m grateful. Skipped breakfast with a fast, very low cal lunch. We won’t talk about the rest.
    Day 44 – 10/30 …..208.4….. I woke up in the middle of the night and ate a tremendously large meal before going back to sleep. I was starving! Very unusual. Early morning weigh-in afterward.
    Day 45 – 10/31 …..208.4…..

    Weight Loss in October……………….. 2.6 lbs Lost
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..2.9 lbs LOST so far Total


    Day 46 – 11/01 …..207.4….. Even after sneaking some Haloween Candy so I am very happy with this. A very light dinner helped.
    Day 47 – 11/02 …..208.6….. I ate 3 meals yesterday. They were pretty healthy but I usually only eat two and a snack at night with TV so I know it was higher calories than typical.
    Day 48 – 11/03 …..207.6….. What a roller-coaster ride this is!
    Day 49 – 11/04 …..?????….. I actually forgot to weigh today before the coffee. Yesterday was an above-average day so the scale would probably have smiled a little bit on me.
    Day 50 – 11/05 …..206.6….. At the halfway mark in the challenge and feeling very happy with my progress. Will this 206 hold? Stay tuned.

    ******************************HALFWAY MARK**************************

    Day 51 – 11/06 …..205.2….. Yay! I’m going to keep this train going and plan my meals carefully today!
    Day 52 – 11/07 …..205.2.….. Blood sugar drop last night really did me in. I tried to be more in control of the situation but it still requires sugar and carbs to fix very quickly. I managed to bring it back up without being totally ridiculous. Thankful for that. I will plan more carefully today and avoid that situation tonight, I hope.
    Day 53 – 11/08 ……206.0…..Must have been hidden high sodium. My menu wasn’t bad yesterday and my movement was increased.
    Day 54 – 11/09 ….206.2….. More salty food. Today is a very big day in my life. I will have little control of anything but I will do my best.
    Day 55 – 11/10 …..207.0….. Pizza & icecream during a celebration. Kicking my own butt today.
    Day 56 – 11/11 …..207.4….. Reading my posts from various challenges, I think I’ve found a pattern of self-destruction. Every time I have a glucose drop (very scary) I end up eating high carb or sugary things at night which I believe sub-consciensly (spelled wrong) caused me to eat wrong and too much at night to avoid an episode. I am going to work around this but it won’t be easy. That survival instinct we have as humans is very strong and hard to manipulate.
    Day 72 – 11/12 …..207.4….. Same
    Day 58 – 11/13 ……207.6….. You CAN overeat healthy low cal foods. I was STARVING yesterday. Woke up STARVING again today. I hope for a better day but I am trying to pay attention to my body's cues to avoid sugar drops. Fear changes things and it's a hill I climb sometimes in my journey. Figuring it out.
    Day 59 – 11/14 …..210.0…..A neighbor brought me a Chinese Dinner yesterday from out of town. Half for lunch. Half for dinner. I thought he was my friend. : /
    Day 60 – 11/15 …..208.6….. I was careful yesterday due to some bloat and it helped. I will stay diligent today. I am proud that I turned down icecream when everyone else had it. I had a glass of cold water instead.
    Day 61 – 11/16 …..207.2….I am still working down the bloat. Michigan is closing down restaurants starting Tuesday night/Wednesday morning at midnight. I see restaurants in my day for tomorrow and Tuesday for me and my son. Just like last time, nearly all of our very few restaurants in this very small town will completely close, even if carry out is allowed. Carry out only is just not enough to sustain small town places. I will try to be mindful but I think Pizza will be one choice and that is usually not good. So, my plan is to watch the quantities. I will survive and overcome any damage.
    Day 62 – 11/17 …..209.0….. This is making me crazy. I know I need more water. Hardly shedding any at all and that is very unusual for a diabetic!
    Day 63 – 11/18 …..209.0….. Bad choices on the run with my busy life right now. I can’t wait for things to improve!
    Day 64 – 11/19 …..208.4….. Finally losing some water weight. I can’t wait to actually get to the fat!
    Day 65 – 11/20 …..208.4……Final moving day. Handing over the keys to my home and two businesses. I will be very busy unpacking over the next couple of weeks. I will not be able to focus on my diet so much, but I should be able to get in lots of movement!
    Day 66 – 11/21 .….208.4……
    Day 67 – 11/22 …..208.1…… Finally got internet straightened out in new home!
    Day 68 – 11/23 …..207.2…… Thankful for the drop. Traveling today for a new hot water heater. I will be careful with the carry-out at the restaurant but I will expect some water retention tomorrow.
    Day 69 – 11/24 …..207.2…… Shocked there is no after travel major damage.
    Day 70 – 11/25 …..206.2…… Burning it off. Diet just so-so.
    Day 71 – 11/26 …..206..6…… Frustrating!
    Day 72 – 11/27 …..207.6…… Not too bad after a Thanksgiving meal in the new house. Our view was unpacked boxes, but the meal was delicious. I can’t believe I pulled the kitchen together (just) enough to cook and bake! My son & I have so much to be grateful for this year so this was an important event for us.
    Day 73 – 11/28 …..206.4…… I’m very happy with this post-Thanksgiving weight as it goes back down. I will be adding 20 minutes of general dancing and/or Fitness Marshall to my routine starting soon!
    Day 74 – 11/29 …..xxxxx…… I actually forgot to weigh today. Wrapped and prepped for my DGS birthday party who turned 3. It was handled in a Covid-safe way. Cake & icecream that I couldn’t say no to, so hopefully not too much damage tomorrow.
    Day 75 – 11/30 …..207.2…… Back on track today. Those after-holiday late night cravings got to me last night. I realized after eating that I could easily have eaten much much less. Sometimes I fill my plate with the “old amounts” out of habit. I’ll have to watch that!

    Weight Loss in November……………….. 1.2 Lbs Lost.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..4.1 lbs Lost Total. Very Grateful.



    Day 76 – 12/01 …..207.6…… No TMI for 2 days now which I know is affecting the scale.
    Day 77 – 12/02 …..206..8…… I credit the bathroom activity. Diet could have been worse but could have been better too.
    Day 78 – 12/03 …..206.2…… I’m liking this!
    Day 79 – 12/04 …..203.6…… I hate to be graphic, but I peed so much during the night that I think this may strictly be fluid loss. When rehydrated, what will I actually weigh? We shall see…..
    Day 80 – 12/05 …..203.8…… Rehydrating after a big drop due to fluid loss. Getting in a little dancing on my Alexa.
    Day 81 – 12/06 …..203.4……The 203’s are for real????? Pleased as punch here.
    Day 82 – 12/07 …..202.6…… I tested it and it’s true. I just don’t need that many crackers in my soup! Keeping the calories lower and working hard at continued unpacking, wrapping presents and decorating too.
    Day 83 – 12/08 …..203.4…… A bit up today so I will buckle down!
    Day 84 - 12/09 …..204.0…..I need to start thanking people for their kindness when they bring over food, but lay it aside.
    Day 85 – 12/10….. 204.2…… Creeping up.
    Day 86 – 12/11 …..204.2…… I guess the same is better than a gain.
    Day 87 – 12/12 …..204.2…… Holding my own, I suppose.
    Day 88 – 12/13 …..203.2…… Lots of online shopping so more sitting than moving yesterday sadly. However, I kept the calories pretty low and the carbs very reasonable. I just wish I had not needed that peanut butter toast and milk late last night. Next time, ½ the serving size. I have got to stop relying on old amounts of food out of habit and actually use my natural cues to determine how much I need to eat. Old habits are hard to break! Visually the new amounts look so small, even on smaller plates. But in reality, the smaller versions are usually enough now!
    Day 89 – 12/14 …..203.4…… Christmas treats truly are irresistible.
    Day 90 – 12/15 …..205.0…… Spent time with a friend. Did we eat more than we talked? It sure looks like it. I will attempt to be better today. Blue skies ahead.
    Day 91 – 12/16 …..205.0…… Well thought-out meals. Snacks….eh…..not so much. I’ll try harder on that front today.
    Day 92 – 12/17 …..205.2…… Bread. Like Dawn, I just couldn’t seem to get enough food yesterday. I had bread at every meal to finish filling me up.
    Day 93 – 12/18 …..205.0…… I traveled out of town today for Christmas shopping. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 94 – 12/19 …..205.4… After travel weight.
    Day 95 – 12/20 …..206.0…… No activity yesterday other than wrapping and a little bit of housekeeping. Workman was here until 11:00 pm (slow but reasonably priced Charlie) . Then i was just hungry and tired. Charlie is back today. I hope it will not take all day and night to complete the tasks.
    Day 96 – 12/21 …..xxxxx……
    Day 97 – 12/22 …..xxxxx……
    Day 98 – 12/23 …..xxxxx……

    Heading to the camp in order to help my Mom (her husband passed away this month) … review her financial situation, review & pay bills, get her Christmas decor out of attic and decorate (plus find a spot for it to store so there is no need to use attic in the future).

    12th Week Goal Weight: <214 AGAIN
    12th Week Actual Weight: 214.6 Frustrated that I’ve not been able to make 213 stick and keep seeing 214 and 215! But then again this has been a stressful week with lots of challenges. Not giving up on this goal … in it again for the next round!

    Day 81: Sun, 12/6: 215.1 No exercise, long car ride, 1834 cal, 126 net carbs, 2 wine.
    Day 82: Mon, 12/7: 215.0 (+ .5 Weigh-In Day) Walked 3.3 miles, 1517 cal, 52 net carbs, 2 wine + 1 Benedictine. Time to get serious about losing weight and not let it creep up this holiday season!
    Day 83: Tues, 12/8: 214.9 Walked 3.5 miles + 1 mile, 1 plank, 1438 cal, 27 net carbs, AF. Back to better habits … weekly menu planning, logging my meals each day in the morning, less alcohol, focus on water & exercise!
    Day 84: Wed, 12/9: 214.1 Walked 4 miles, 1 plank, bike 30, 1630 cal, 21 net carbs, 1 wine, 1 Benedictine.
    Day 85: Thurs, 12/10: 213.9 Walk 3.6 miles, 1 plank, 1227 cal, 27 net carbs, 2 wine. There is that elusive 213 again! Now to not bounce back up and lose sight of it again for weeks on end!
    Day 86: Fri, 12/11: 213.4 Walked 2.3 miles, 1 plank, bike 30, 1465 cal, 45 net carbs, 3 wine.
    Day 87: Sat, 12/12: 213.3 Walked 2.2, 1 plank, bike 30, 1538 cal, 45 net carbs, 2 wine.

    13th Week Goal Weight: 213.ANYTHING Time to make the scale quit bouncing up to 214 & 215. Basically been here for about 4 weeks.
    13th Week Actual Weight: 213.3 YEAH!!! 213.x three days in a row. Now lower than I was before Thanksgiving.

    Day 88: Sun, 12/13: 213.1 No exercise, 1492 cal, 47 net carbs, 1 wine. Pancakes for breakfast + chips & guac for lunch.
    Day 89: Mon, 12/14: 212.8 (-2.2 Weigh-In Day) No exercise rainy weekend, plank, 2486 cal, 44 net carbs, 2 wine. Really rich dinner - Sheet Pan Mustard Chicken with Bacon, Mushrooms & Onions.
    Day 90: Tues, 12/15: 211.6 🎗Walked 3.1 miles, plank, 1142 cal, 78 net carbs, AF. Red beans and rice for dinner surely bump up the scale but it didn't. Maybe because of smaller portion or no cornbread? Low calories overall today and I guess carbs were not as out of control as I thought.
    Day 91: Wed, 12/16: 212.1 Walked 2.4 miles in misty rain, plank, 1269 cal, 85 net carbs, 3 wine. Pasta for dinner. WI at my obgyn’s yesterday fully clothed w/shoes in the afternoon was 212! When I last saw her in Feb 2019 I weighed 235.
    Day 92: Thurs, 12/17: 213.4 Walked 1.9 + .9 miles, 1846 cal, 144 net carbs, AF. I think I pushed the limits with a restaurant salad at lunch and then Grimaldi’s pizza for dinner! Both were delicious but back to the board to drive the scale back down.
    Day 93: Fri, 12/18: 213.4 Walked 3.2 miles, 1659 cal, 72 net carbs, 2 wine. Lost electricity unexpected dinner out.
    Day 94: Sat, 12/19: 212.7 Walked 3.3 miles, plank, 1465 cal, 39 net carbs, AF. Still not drinking enough water … need to up my game and guzzle more water this weekend.

    14th Week Goal Weight: 212.something Hoping to see myself dip down to 211 during the week!
    14th Week Actual Weight: 212.7 Not much progress. Let unexpected dinners get the best of me and let 211 slip away!

    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. 60 year old female
    I live in South East British Columbia Canada
    MFP start date October 28.18 - SW 191
    Ultimate goal weight - 112 - 115

    My previous 3 rounds:
    The 1st one:
    Nov 22.19 ending February 29.20 – Start weight 158.1 EW 154.4 Total loss over 100 days: 3.7
    The 2nd one:
    March 01 - June 08.20 Start weight 154.4 EW 151.7 Total loss over 100 days 2.7 pounds
    The 3rd one:
    June 09 - September 16th Start weight 151.2 EW 142.3 Total loss over 100 days 8.9 pounds
    3 rounds of 100 days each total results = 15.3 pounds lost

    I started tracking my excess calories each day last round, those in the Green at the end of the tracking day. My results (based on 1200 calories per day) from 100 days were 78,627 - which over 100 days should lead to 7.86 pound loss, and I actually lost 8.9, so pretty good.

    Day 1: Thurs, 9/17: 141.7 - I expect to get a lot of activity on my trip, but today is a driving day so I will have a nice workout before I leave. 919 in the green

    Day 4: Sun 9/20 - 141.0 - My 60th birthday weight



    Day 88: Sun, 12/13: 138.1 - Indulged a bit. I have to be vigilant, but also need a cheat day here and there. Very easy to put on 2 pounds in 1 day, but it can take 2 weeks to lose it back sometimes. It is what it is. I will try to skate that off today : - ) 950 calories left over in the Green
    Day 89: Mon, 12/14: 137.4 - Only 10 more weigh days left of the 100! 804 in the Green
    Day 90: Tues, 12/15: 136.9 - Yay. I have hit this number before, glad to see it again. 984 in the Green
    Day 91: Wed, 12/16: 137.5 - Working hard to stay in the 130s. Skated on a lake yesterday. 210 in the Green
    Day 92: Thurs, 12/17: 136.9 - I was very tired and hungry all day yesterday, couldn't even get myself out for a skate. I ate more than usual. The scale seems to like it though. 993 in the Green
    Day 93: Fri, 12/18: 137.0 - Going to try to hold on to this, I have food and drink events going on within my "bubble" over the weekend. Too hard fought for to let it slip away. I will keep my activity (calories out) high. 777 in the Green.
    Day 94: Sat, 12/19: 135.9 - Lowest so far. Even if it is a fluctuation, nice to see that number. 434 in the Green

    14th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    14th Week Actual Weight: 135.9
    Excess Calories burned this week: 5152 - Enough to lose a pound

    Day 95 – 12/20: 136.2 - Had a tonne of activity, but also ate a bunch of stuff with 2 friends (in my bubble) and not sure that I got the things tracked perfectly after. I will be strict today, and accept what ever number I get tomorrow morning. 940 in the Green
    Day 96 – 12/21: 137.2 - Going to keep it light until at least Christmas Eve. Saturday's indulgence showed up this morning.
    Day 97 – 12/22:
    Day 98 – 12/23:
    Day 99 – 12/24:
    Day 100 - 12/25:

    Excess Calories burned the final week:

    Challenge Starting Weight: 141.7

    @deepwoodslady
    I am glad that you found a reasonably priced workman Donna. It must be lovely to see these things getting accomplished.
    I'm also glad that you were able to travel to shop. Some of our provinces have locked down everything except essential stores, allowing the sale of food, diapers, and medication only.
    So happy that you are embarking on this new chapter for you and your son.

    @Lilylady3k
    Very wise warning to not add holiday overindulgence to the list of what went wrong in 2020.
    I do plan on indulging, but am going to try to keep it to one day only. (stuffing and gravy are irresistible to me!)

    @dawnbegethealthy

    I've mentioned before how far the stores are from my community. Many of them were closed although it was not mandated. But I did manage to get quite a bit of shopping done.

    The workman is not working on the popcorn ceilings. I would never start that before Christmas LOL! But there are a lot of small things that add up and he is tying up many loose ends for me. Unfortunately, yesterday I realized the pipes coming in from the well are leaking badly into the well closet. I just can't let him turn the water off and try to fix it this close to Christmas in case he encounters a problem (can't be without water during my family Christmas gathering!) So that is on the agenda for AFTERWARD. I hope it is not a huge issue. In the meantime, he is installing and mounting shelving units and benches in the garage. Repairing furniture using tablesaw. He is also doing some of the heaviest lifting in the house (as needed). I have to baby my right arm because of the breast cancer and chances of lymphedema setting in. He will be back today.

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


    STARTING WEIGHT: 211.3

    Day 01 – 09/17 ….210.8…..Very Pleased. This is a nice way to start! Good luck everyone!
    Day 02 – 09/18 ....210.6….. Happy Dance!
    Day 03 – 09/19 ….211.2….. canned soup with crackers. Too much sodium but had no time to cook yesterday.
    Day 04 – 09/20 ….210.8….. Better!
    Day 05 - 09/21 …..211.0….. not a bad little increase after movie night with son and some pizza.
    Day 06 – 09/22 …..210.8….. Traveled today so tomorrow will be pitiful. Going to get very diligent to knock it back into the atmosphere. No extra fat allowed to hang around here. Time to go!
    Day 07 – 09/23 …..212.0….. After travel. I will work on this today.
    Day 08 – 09/24 …..210.8….. Traveled again but kept it to one meal and a small snack and I was rewarded!
    Day 09 – 09/25 …..211.6….. I hate gaining when there is no apparent reason why. Yesterday was a pretty good day. However, there was not much movement due to all the special meetings I had. So today I will focus on more movement and cautiously go to the grocery store for more water (which is a little scary on a Friday in this small tourist town). Hydration may be key today. Flush, flush, flush.
    Day 10 – 09/26 …..211.4…..
    Day 11 – 09/27 …..211.2….. I am not getting where I want to be in a very healthy way. Even with the scale going down I am not super happy. I know I avoided meals yesterday and just ate too much junk. It may have been lower calories overall and it may have caused a decrease on the scale but it is all about healthy and sustainable. I vow to have a better day today. One day at a time, right?
    Day 12 – 09/28 …..209.8…..Yay!!! Better meals, a bit better movement. I just gotta watch those bad snacks!
    Day 13 – 09/29 …..210.0….. Just a simple fluctuation. I had a very well-balanced day yesterday. Low cal for sure.
    Day 14 – 09/30 …..211.0….. Chinese food yesterday with leftovers today. Still down a tad from the start.
    Weight Loss in September……………….. 0.3 lb LOSS
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..0.3 Loss


    Day 15 – 10/01 …..211.0…..I finished the last of the Chinese food. Now time for healthier and less sodium!
    Day 16 – 10/02 …..209.0….. Whoosh! Practiced some IF yesterday and tried to keep the calories low (AS THEY SHOULD BE) . I hope today will be another good day!
    Day 17 - 10/03 …..210.4….. I salted my low sodium veggie soup because it tasted sweet and then I cheated with some dessert when I could have just had the soup and called IT dessert! Lesson learned. However, I am still down 1.6 in the last 10 days which is better than I’ve done in awhile so I will try to keep up the momentum. I am hydrating a lot today to offset any bloat.
    Day 18 – 10/04 …..210.0….. Going back down, even with challenges. #nevergiveup
    Day 19 – 10/05 …..211.6….. I ate healthy yesterday but dinner was not until 11:00 pm (busy day). Lots of steps also so this is a shock! No TMI this morning so that doesn’t help. Very disappointing but not disrupting. Staying on track today.
    Day 20 – 10/06 …..209.4….. Whoosh!
    Day 21 – 10/07 …..209.6….. A good day yesterday so this is likely a normal fluctuation.
    Day 22 – 10/08 …..209.8….. Another good day. The slight fluctuation must be from no TMI (potty) x 2 days. Otherwise, all is well. Good choices are being made. Not too much movement due to a pretty yucky foot injury but otherwise, all is well.
    Day 23 – 10/09 …..209.6…..Slightly better but my snacks were cheats last night. Working to stop the midnight madness!
    Day 24 – 10/10 …..210.0…..Fish fry last night. Today I will be extra careful. I am going to go look at Dawn’s videos right now. Pretty exited!
    Day 25 – 10/11 …..209.2….. Yay!
    Day 26 – 10/12 …..208.6….. Artificially low? We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 27 – 10/13 …..208.6….. I see I posted my stats yesterday on the wrong challenge. I guess I was just excited! I traveled today so I am afraid of tomorrow’s numbers, but I will try to stay positive and tackle whatever mean ol’ number that scale may bring.
    Day 28 – 10/14 …..209.2….. I’m actually quite pleased with this. Sometimes carbs pack on 2-3 pounds from one travel meal! As a diabetic, I always eat when traveling. I am sure I will always choose those lovely foods not available in my little home town. However, changing habits in some way IS good so I am trying to resign myself to smaller portions. Also a lighter calorie/carb day the day after. No need to keep the extra ounces (on my hips) right?
    Day 29 – 10/15 …..208.4….. God is Good and He has always had my back. Today is the first step in some life-changing things I have been working on. It puts me one step closer to where I need to be in my personal and professional life. I hope everyone will smile with (and for) me today. As far as my weight goes, I am not counting every carb and calorie again, just yet, but I am tweaking and making some important changes on this particular path of my journey. When all my resolutions are here, I will be able to focus again. It will be before Christmas I hope. Thanks to everyone for their continued support. Down almost a whole pound overnight and a bit lower than my pre-travel weight! I am estatic!
    Day 30 – 10/16 …..208.2….. I’ll take it!
    Day 31 – 10/17 …..207.6….. I am trying to make a better difference everyday in my diet, movement and attitude. I’m not 100% yet, some personal things continue to hold me back in time and energy, but I’m on my way!
    Day 32 – 10/18 …..208.2….. I was very careful and got in some extra movement. I did have garlic bread (2 slices) so I guess I deserve this. I am still carefully watching portions (otherwise).
    Day 33 – 10/19 …..207.4….. I enjoyed a new Deep Dish Pizza place in my little rural town. It was very good. I ate ½ of what I would normally eat and saved the rest for my dinner. No snacks at TV time to make up for the carbs/calories. It really helped and my weight has moved down! I will make today a great day!
    Day 34 – 10/20 …..207.0…..I made a few bad choices but stopped temptation in it’s tracks and made the actual decision to make better one’s for the rest of the day. So glad I did!
    Day 35 – 10/21 …..206.2….. I’m actually patting myself on the back today. So proud I have continued my changes. Yesterday I danced to one song on my Alexa and I did one Fitness Marshall (Sour Candy) with Lady Gaga. It felt like a 20 minute workout so I am out of shape but it was fun. I always love watching him!
    Day 36 – 10/22 …..207.6…..Well that Sux! I guess grilled cheese & tomato soup is off the menu in the near future! Having chili-dogs at a local bar/restaurant today with a friend. I will have to work my whole dietary day around the pre-planned lunch. I need more movement and water today too.
    Day 37 – 10/23 …..206.8….. I could have done without the French silk pie, or could I? Still trending down so I must be diligent!
    Day 38 – 10/24 …..207.8….. Lucky Charms for dinner is a no-no.
    Day 39 – 10/25 …..208.2…..A horrid day of grab & go eating. In fact it has been that way for the past few days. I MUST find time to cook but its pretty hard to do when most of my time lately has been away from home on projects. Tomorrow I travel far & wide to pick up my car from transmission shop downstate. I won’t be home until late evening. More weight!
    Day 40 – 10/26 …..208.2….. Feeling like a loser right now without losing.
    Day 41 – 10/27 …..210.4….. After travel weight. Fall is trying to get to me again with the pre-snow (bad roads) travel rush and with the warm & toasty comfort food. Too cold to walk and all that jazz. Knowledge is power! Today will be a good day.
    Day 42 – 10/28 …..209.2….. Working it back down again. Cha-Cha!
    Day 43 – 10/29 …..207.9….. I don’t think I entirely deserve the nice drop on the scale but I’m grateful. Skipped breakfast with a fast, very low cal lunch. We won’t talk about the rest.
    Day 44 – 10/30 …..208.4….. I woke up in the middle of the night and ate a tremendously large meal before going back to sleep. I was starving! Very unusual. Early morning weigh-in afterward.
    Day 45 – 10/31 …..208.4…..

    Weight Loss in October……………….. 2.6 lbs Lost
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..2.9 lbs LOST so far Total


    Day 46 – 11/01 …..207.4….. Even after sneaking some Haloween Candy so I am very happy with this. A very light dinner helped.
    Day 47 – 11/02 …..208.6….. I ate 3 meals yesterday. They were pretty healthy but I usually only eat two and a snack at night with TV so I know it was higher calories than typical.
    Day 48 – 11/03 …..207.6….. What a roller-coaster ride this is!
    Day 49 – 11/04 …..?????….. I actually forgot to weigh today before the coffee. Yesterday was an above-average day so the scale would probably have smiled a little bit on me.
    Day 50 – 11/05 …..206.6….. At the halfway mark in the challenge and feeling very happy with my progress. Will this 206 hold? Stay tuned.

    ******************************HALFWAY MARK**************************

    Day 51 – 11/06 …..205.2….. Yay! I’m going to keep this train going and plan my meals carefully today!
    Day 52 – 11/07 …..205.2.….. Blood sugar drop last night really did me in. I tried to be more in control of the situation but it still requires sugar and carbs to fix very quickly. I managed to bring it back up without being totally ridiculous. Thankful for that. I will plan more carefully today and avoid that situation tonight, I hope.
    Day 53 – 11/08 ……206.0…..Must have been hidden high sodium. My menu wasn’t bad yesterday and my movement was increased.
    Day 54 – 11/09 ….206.2….. More salty food. Today is a very big day in my life. I will have little control of anything but I will do my best.
    Day 55 – 11/10 …..207.0….. Pizza & icecream during a celebration. Kicking my own butt today.
    Day 56 – 11/11 …..207.4….. Reading my posts from various challenges, I think I’ve found a pattern of self-destruction. Every time I have a glucose drop (very scary) I end up eating high carb or sugary things at night which I believe sub-consciensly (spelled wrong) caused me to eat wrong and too much at night to avoid an episode. I am going to work around this but it won’t be easy. That survival instinct we have as humans is very strong and hard to manipulate.
    Day 72 – 11/12 …..207.4….. Same
    Day 58 – 11/13 ……207.6….. You CAN overeat healthy low cal foods. I was STARVING yesterday. Woke up STARVING again today. I hope for a better day but I am trying to pay attention to my body's cues to avoid sugar drops. Fear changes things and it's a hill I climb sometimes in my journey. Figuring it out.
    Day 59 – 11/14 …..210.0…..A neighbor brought me a Chinese Dinner yesterday from out of town. Half for lunch. Half for dinner. I thought he was my friend. : /
    Day 60 – 11/15 …..208.6….. I was careful yesterday due to some bloat and it helped. I will stay diligent today. I am proud that I turned down icecream when everyone else had it. I had a glass of cold water instead.
    Day 61 – 11/16 …..207.2….I am still working down the bloat. Michigan is closing down restaurants starting Tuesday night/Wednesday morning at midnight. I see restaurants in my day for tomorrow and Tuesday for me and my son. Just like last time, nearly all of our very few restaurants in this very small town will completely close, even if carry out is allowed. Carry out only is just not enough to sustain small town places. I will try to be mindful but I think Pizza will be one choice and that is usually not good. So, my plan is to watch the quantities. I will survive and overcome any damage.
    Day 62 – 11/17 …..209.0….. This is making me crazy. I know I need more water. Hardly shedding any at all and that is very unusual for a diabetic!
    Day 63 – 11/18 …..209.0….. Bad choices on the run with my busy life right now. I can’t wait for things to improve!
    Day 64 – 11/19 …..208.4….. Finally losing some water weight. I can’t wait to actually get to the fat!
    Day 65 – 11/20 …..208.4……Final moving day. Handing over the keys to my home and two businesses. I will be very busy unpacking over the next couple of weeks. I will not be able to focus on my diet so much, but I should be able to get in lots of movement!
    Day 66 – 11/21 .….208.4……
    Day 67 – 11/22 …..208.1…… Finally got internet straightened out in new home!
    Day 68 – 11/23 …..207.2…… Thankful for the drop. Traveling today for a new hot water heater. I will be careful with the carry-out at the restaurant but I will expect some water retention tomorrow.
    Day 69 – 11/24 …..207.2…… Shocked there is no after travel major damage.
    Day 70 – 11/25 …..206.2…… Burning it off. Diet just so-so.
    Day 71 – 11/26 …..206..6…… Frustrating!
    Day 72 – 11/27 …..207.6…… Not too bad after a Thanksgiving meal in the new house. Our view was unpacked boxes, but the meal was delicious. I can’t believe I pulled the kitchen together (just) enough to cook and bake! My son & I have so much to be grateful for this year so this was an important event for us.
    Day 73 – 11/28 …..206.4…… I’m very happy with this post-Thanksgiving weight as it goes back down. I will be adding 20 minutes of general dancing and/or Fitness Marshall to my routine starting soon!
    Day 74 – 11/29 …..xxxxx…… I actually forgot to weigh today. Wrapped and prepped for my DGS birthday party who turned 3. It was handled in a Covid-safe way. Cake & icecream that I couldn’t say no to, so hopefully not too much damage tomorrow.
    Day 75 – 11/30 …..207.2…… Back on track today. Those after-holiday late night cravings got to me last night. I realized after eating that I could easily have eaten much much less. Sometimes I fill my plate with the “old amounts” out of habit. I’ll have to watch that!

    Weight Loss in November……………….. 1.2 Lbs Lost.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..4.1 lbs Lost Total. Very Grateful.



    Day 76 – 12/01 …..207.6…… No TMI for 2 days now which I know is affecting the scale.
    Day 77 – 12/02 …..206..8…… I credit the bathroom activity. Diet could have been worse but could have been better too.
    Day 78 – 12/03 …..206.2…… I’m liking this!
    Day 79 – 12/04 …..203.6…… I hate to be graphic, but I peed so much during the night that I think this may strictly be fluid loss. When rehydrated, what will I actually weigh? We shall see…..
    Day 80 – 12/05 …..203.8…… Rehydrating after a big drop due to fluid loss. Getting in a little dancing on my Alexa.
    Day 81 – 12/06 …..203.4……The 203’s are for real????? Pleased as punch here.
    Day 82 – 12/07 …..202.6…… I tested it and it’s true. I just don’t need that many crackers in my soup! Keeping the calories lower and working hard at continued unpacking, wrapping presents and decorating too.
    Day 83 – 12/08 …..203.4…… A bit up today so I will buckle down!
    Day 84 - 12/09 …..204.0…..I need to start thanking people for their kindness when they bring over food, but lay it aside.
    Day 85 – 12/10….. 204.2…… Creeping up.
    Day 86 – 12/11 …..204.2…… I guess the same is better than a gain.
    Day 87 – 12/12 …..204.2…… Holding my own, I suppose.
    Day 88 – 12/13 …..203.2…… Lots of online shopping so more sitting than moving yesterday sadly. However, I kept the calories pretty low and the carbs very reasonable. I just wish I had not needed that peanut butter toast and milk late last night. Next time, ½ the serving size. I have got to stop relying on old amounts of food out of habit and actually use my natural cues to determine how much I need to eat. Old habits are hard to break! Visually the new amounts look so small, even on smaller plates. But in reality, the smaller versions are usually enough now!
    Day 89 – 12/14 …..203.4…… Christmas treats truly are irresistible.
    Day 90 – 12/15 …..205.0…… Spent time with a friend. Did we eat more than we talked? It sure looks like it. I will attempt to be better today. Blue skies ahead.
    Day 91 – 12/16 …..205.0…… Well thought-out meals. Snacks….eh…..not so much. I’ll try harder on that front today.
    Day 92 – 12/17 …..205.2…… Bread. Like Dawn, I just couldn’t seem to get enough food yesterday. I had bread at every meal to finish filling me up.
    Day 93 – 12/18 …..205.0…… I traveled out of town today for Christmas shopping. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 94 – 12/19 …..205.4… After travel weight.
    Day 95 – 12/20 …..206.0…… No activity yesterday other than wrapping and a little bit of housekeeping. Workman was here until 11:00 pm (slow but reasonably priced Charlie) . Then i was just hungry and tired. Charlie is back today. I hope it will not take all day and night to complete the tasks.
    Day 96 – 12/21 …..206.0……I’m planning on pre-prepping a special low calorie & low carb dinner today. I’ve got to try to erase some ounces off my behind. Tomorrow is baking day and fudge making with my daughter. I see disaster. No one knows me like I do. Just keeping it honest!
    Day 97 – 12/22 …..xxxxx……
    Day 98 – 12/23 …..xxxxx……
    Day 99 – 12/24 …..xxxxx……
    Day 100[/color=darkturquoise – 12/25 (Final Weight In)……xxxxx……

    @deepwoodslady - Your baking day with your daughter is worth every ounce! Enjoy!

    @dawnbgethealthy - Good plan ... limit the number of days of celebration eating and not let it turn into a full week of indulgence! I think I'll follow your plan and indulge Thurs & Fri but these next few days are not open kitchen. Thank you for the reminder.

    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. 60 year old female
    I live in South East British Columbia Canada
    MFP start date October 28.18 - SW 191
    Ultimate goal weight - 112 - 115

    My previous 3 rounds:
    The 1st one:
    Nov 22.19 ending February 29.20 – Start weight 158.1 EW 154.4 Total loss over 100 days: 3.7
    The 2nd one:
    March 01 - June 08.20 Start weight 154.4 EW 151.7 Total loss over 100 days 2.7 pounds
    The 3rd one:
    June 09 - September 16th Start weight 151.2 EW 142.3 Total loss over 100 days 8.9 pounds
    3 rounds of 100 days each total results = 15.3 pounds lost

    I started tracking my excess calories each day last round, those in the Green at the end of the tracking day. My results (based on 1200 calories per day) from 100 days were 78,627 - which over 100 days should lead to 7.86 pound loss, and I actually lost 8.9, so pretty good.

    Day 1: Thurs, 9/17: 141.7 - I expect to get a lot of activity on my trip, but today is a driving day so I will have a nice workout before I leave. 919 in the green

    Day 4: Sun 9/20 - 141.0 - My 60th birthday weight



    Day 88: Sun, 12/13: 138.1 - Indulged a bit. I have to be vigilant, but also need a cheat day here and there. Very easy to put on 2 pounds in 1 day, but it can take 2 weeks to lose it back sometimes. It is what it is. I will try to skate that off today : - ) 950 calories left over in the Green
    Day 89: Mon, 12/14: 137.4 - Only 10 more weigh days left of the 100! 804 in the Green
    Day 90: Tues, 12/15: 136.9 - Yay. I have hit this number before, glad to see it again. 984 in the Green
    Day 91: Wed, 12/16: 137.5 - Working hard to stay in the 130s. Skated on a lake yesterday. 210 in the Green
    Day 92: Thurs, 12/17: 136.9 - I was very tired and hungry all day yesterday, couldn't even get myself out for a skate. I ate more than usual. The scale seems to like it though. 993 in the Green
    Day 93: Fri, 12/18: 137.0 - Going to try to hold on to this, I have food and drink events going on within my "bubble" over the weekend. Too hard fought for to let it slip away. I will keep my activity (calories out) high. 777 in the Green.
    Day 94: Sat, 12/19: 135.9 - Lowest so far. Even if it is a fluctuation, nice to see that number. 434 in the Green

    14th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    14th Week Actual Weight: 135.9
    Excess Calories burned this week: 5152 - Enough to lose a pound

    Day 95 – 12/20: 136.2 - Had a tonne of activity, but also ate a bunch of stuff with 2 friends (in my bubble) and not sure that I got the things tracked perfectly after. I will be strict today, and accept what ever number I get tomorrow morning. 940 in the Green
    Day 96 – 12/21: 137.2 - Going to keep it light until at least Christmas Eve. Saturday's indulgence showed up this morning. 291 in the Green
    Day 97 – 12/22: 137.1 - I didn't get very much activity in yesterday. Hoping to drop a couple of more ounces before holiday foods.

    It will be a fun day. She will be here after work. I wish I could say that I will only be tasting tidbits but I don't think I'm there yet. In all honesty, around the holidays I don't know if I ever will be. I will plan on watching my actual meals very closely to help offset the tasting and the gobbles. I will also try to get in a little fitness after she leaves (if I'm not too tired).

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


    STARTING WEIGHT: 211.3

    Day 01 – 09/17 ….210.8…..Very Pleased. This is a nice way to start! Good luck everyone!
    Day 02 – 09/18 ....210.6….. Happy Dance!
    Day 03 – 09/19 ….211.2….. canned soup with crackers. Too much sodium but had no time to cook yesterday.
    Day 04 – 09/20 ….210.8….. Better!
    Day 05 - 09/21 …..211.0….. not a bad little increase after movie night with son and some pizza.
    Day 06 – 09/22 …..210.8….. Traveled today so tomorrow will be pitiful. Going to get very diligent to knock it back into the atmosphere. No extra fat allowed to hang around here. Time to go!
    Day 07 – 09/23 …..212.0….. After travel. I will work on this today.
    Day 08 – 09/24 …..210.8….. Traveled again but kept it to one meal and a small snack and I was rewarded!
    Day 09 – 09/25 …..211.6….. I hate gaining when there is no apparent reason why. Yesterday was a pretty good day. However, there was not much movement due to all the special meetings I had. So today I will focus on more movement and cautiously go to the grocery store for more water (which is a little scary on a Friday in this small tourist town). Hydration may be key today. Flush, flush, flush.
    Day 10 – 09/26 …..211.4…..
    Day 11 – 09/27 …..211.2….. I am not getting where I want to be in a very healthy way. Even with the scale going down I am not super happy. I know I avoided meals yesterday and just ate too much junk. It may have been lower calories overall and it may have caused a decrease on the scale but it is all about healthy and sustainable. I vow to have a better day today. One day at a time, right?
    Day 12 – 09/28 …..209.8…..Yay!!! Better meals, a bit better movement. I just gotta watch those bad snacks!
    Day 13 – 09/29 …..210.0….. Just a simple fluctuation. I had a very well-balanced day yesterday. Low cal for sure.
    Day 14 – 09/30 …..211.0….. Chinese food yesterday with leftovers today. Still down a tad from the start.
    Weight Loss in September……………….. 0.3 lb LOSS
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..0.3 Loss


    Day 15 – 10/01 …..211.0…..I finished the last of the Chinese food. Now time for healthier and less sodium!
    Day 16 – 10/02 …..209.0….. Whoosh! Practiced some IF yesterday and tried to keep the calories low (AS THEY SHOULD BE) . I hope today will be another good day!
    Day 17 - 10/03 …..210.4….. I salted my low sodium veggie soup because it tasted sweet and then I cheated with some dessert when I could have just had the soup and called IT dessert! Lesson learned. However, I am still down 1.6 in the last 10 days which is better than I’ve done in awhile so I will try to keep up the momentum. I am hydrating a lot today to offset any bloat.
    Day 18 – 10/04 …..210.0….. Going back down, even with challenges. #nevergiveup
    Day 19 – 10/05 …..211.6….. I ate healthy yesterday but dinner was not until 11:00 pm (busy day). Lots of steps also so this is a shock! No TMI this morning so that doesn’t help. Very disappointing but not disrupting. Staying on track today.
    Day 20 – 10/06 …..209.4….. Whoosh!
    Day 21 – 10/07 …..209.6….. A good day yesterday so this is likely a normal fluctuation.
    Day 22 – 10/08 …..209.8….. Another good day. The slight fluctuation must be from no TMI (potty) x 2 days. Otherwise, all is well. Good choices are being made. Not too much movement due to a pretty yucky foot injury but otherwise, all is well.
    Day 23 – 10/09 …..209.6…..Slightly better but my snacks were cheats last night. Working to stop the midnight madness!
    Day 24 – 10/10 …..210.0…..Fish fry last night. Today I will be extra careful. I am going to go look at Dawn’s videos right now. Pretty exited!
    Day 25 – 10/11 …..209.2….. Yay!
    Day 26 – 10/12 …..208.6….. Artificially low? We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 27 – 10/13 …..208.6….. I see I posted my stats yesterday on the wrong challenge. I guess I was just excited! I traveled today so I am afraid of tomorrow’s numbers, but I will try to stay positive and tackle whatever mean ol’ number that scale may bring.
    Day 28 – 10/14 …..209.2….. I’m actually quite pleased with this. Sometimes carbs pack on 2-3 pounds from one travel meal! As a diabetic, I always eat when traveling. I am sure I will always choose those lovely foods not available in my little home town. However, changing habits in some way IS good so I am trying to resign myself to smaller portions. Also a lighter calorie/carb day the day after. No need to keep the extra ounces (on my hips) right?
    Day 29 – 10/15 …..208.4….. God is Good and He has always had my back. Today is the first step in some life-changing things I have been working on. It puts me one step closer to where I need to be in my personal and professional life. I hope everyone will smile with (and for) me today. As far as my weight goes, I am not counting every carb and calorie again, just yet, but I am tweaking and making some important changes on this particular path of my journey. When all my resolutions are here, I will be able to focus again. It will be before Christmas I hope. Thanks to everyone for their continued support. Down almost a whole pound overnight and a bit lower than my pre-travel weight! I am estatic!
    Day 30 – 10/16 …..208.2….. I’ll take it!
    Day 31 – 10/17 …..207.6….. I am trying to make a better difference everyday in my diet, movement and attitude. I’m not 100% yet, some personal things continue to hold me back in time and energy, but I’m on my way!
    Day 32 – 10/18 …..208.2….. I was very careful and got in some extra movement. I did have garlic bread (2 slices) so I guess I deserve this. I am still carefully watching portions (otherwise).
    Day 33 – 10/19 …..207.4….. I enjoyed a new Deep Dish Pizza place in my little rural town. It was very good. I ate ½ of what I would normally eat and saved the rest for my dinner. No snacks at TV time to make up for the carbs/calories. It really helped and my weight has moved down! I will make today a great day!
    Day 34 – 10/20 …..207.0…..I made a few bad choices but stopped temptation in it’s tracks and made the actual decision to make better one’s for the rest of the day. So glad I did!
    Day 35 – 10/21 …..206.2….. I’m actually patting myself on the back today. So proud I have continued my changes. Yesterday I danced to one song on my Alexa and I did one Fitness Marshall (Sour Candy) with Lady Gaga. It felt like a 20 minute workout so I am out of shape but it was fun. I always love watching him!
    Day 36 – 10/22 …..207.6…..Well that Sux! I guess grilled cheese & tomato soup is off the menu in the near future! Having chili-dogs at a local bar/restaurant today with a friend. I will have to work my whole dietary day around the pre-planned lunch. I need more movement and water today too.
    Day 37 – 10/23 …..206.8….. I could have done without the French silk pie, or could I? Still trending down so I must be diligent!
    Day 38 – 10/24 …..207.8….. Lucky Charms for dinner is a no-no.
    Day 39 – 10/25 …..208.2…..A horrid day of grab & go eating. In fact it has been that way for the past few days. I MUST find time to cook but its pretty hard to do when most of my time lately has been away from home on projects. Tomorrow I travel far & wide to pick up my car from transmission shop downstate. I won’t be home until late evening. More weight!
    Day 40 – 10/26 …..208.2….. Feeling like a loser right now without losing.
    Day 41 – 10/27 …..210.4….. After travel weight. Fall is trying to get to me again with the pre-snow (bad roads) travel rush and with the warm & toasty comfort food. Too cold to walk and all that jazz. Knowledge is power! Today will be a good day.
    Day 42 – 10/28 …..209.2….. Working it back down again. Cha-Cha!
    Day 43 – 10/29 …..207.9….. I don’t think I entirely deserve the nice drop on the scale but I’m grateful. Skipped breakfast with a fast, very low cal lunch. We won’t talk about the rest.
    Day 44 – 10/30 …..208.4….. I woke up in the middle of the night and ate a tremendously large meal before going back to sleep. I was starving! Very unusual. Early morning weigh-in afterward.
    Day 45 – 10/31 …..208.4…..

    Weight Loss in October……………….. 2.6 lbs Lost
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..2.9 lbs LOST so far Total


    Day 46 – 11/01 …..207.4….. Even after sneaking some Haloween Candy so I am very happy with this. A very light dinner helped.
    Day 47 – 11/02 …..208.6….. I ate 3 meals yesterday. They were pretty healthy but I usually only eat two and a snack at night with TV so I know it was higher calories than typical.
    Day 48 – 11/03 …..207.6….. What a roller-coaster ride this is!
    Day 49 – 11/04 …..?????….. I actually forgot to weigh today before the coffee. Yesterday was an above-average day so the scale would probably have smiled a little bit on me.
    Day 50 – 11/05 …..206.6….. At the halfway mark in the challenge and feeling very happy with my progress. Will this 206 hold? Stay tuned.

    ******************************HALFWAY MARK**************************

    Day 51 – 11/06 …..205.2….. Yay! I’m going to keep this train going and plan my meals carefully today!
    Day 52 – 11/07 …..205.2.….. Blood sugar drop last night really did me in. I tried to be more in control of the situation but it still requires sugar and carbs to fix very quickly. I managed to bring it back up without being totally ridiculous. Thankful for that. I will plan more carefully today and avoid that situation tonight, I hope.
    Day 53 – 11/08 ……206.0…..Must have been hidden high sodium. My menu wasn’t bad yesterday and my movement was increased.
    Day 54 – 11/09 ….206.2….. More salty food. Today is a very big day in my life. I will have little control of anything but I will do my best.
    Day 55 – 11/10 …..207.0….. Pizza & icecream during a celebration. Kicking my own butt today.
    Day 56 – 11/11 …..207.4….. Reading my posts from various challenges, I think I’ve found a pattern of self-destruction. Every time I have a glucose drop (very scary) I end up eating high carb or sugary things at night which I believe sub-consciensly (spelled wrong) caused me to eat wrong and too much at night to avoid an episode. I am going to work around this but it won’t be easy. That survival instinct we have as humans is very strong and hard to manipulate.
    Day 72 – 11/12 …..207.4….. Same
    Day 58 – 11/13 ……207.6….. You CAN overeat healthy low cal foods. I was STARVING yesterday. Woke up STARVING again today. I hope for a better day but I am trying to pay attention to my body's cues to avoid sugar drops. Fear changes things and it's a hill I climb sometimes in my journey. Figuring it out.
    Day 59 – 11/14 …..210.0…..A neighbor brought me a Chinese Dinner yesterday from out of town. Half for lunch. Half for dinner. I thought he was my friend. : /
    Day 60 – 11/15 …..208.6….. I was careful yesterday due to some bloat and it helped. I will stay diligent today. I am proud that I turned down icecream when everyone else had it. I had a glass of cold water instead.
    Day 61 – 11/16 …..207.2….I am still working down the bloat. Michigan is closing down restaurants starting Tuesday night/Wednesday morning at midnight. I see restaurants in my day for tomorrow and Tuesday for me and my son. Just like last time, nearly all of our very few restaurants in this very small town will completely close, even if carry out is allowed. Carry out only is just not enough to sustain small town places. I will try to be mindful but I think Pizza will be one choice and that is usually not good. So, my plan is to watch the quantities. I will survive and overcome any damage.
    Day 62 – 11/17 …..209.0….. This is making me crazy. I know I need more water. Hardly shedding any at all and that is very unusual for a diabetic!
    Day 63 – 11/18 …..209.0….. Bad choices on the run with my busy life right now. I can’t wait for things to improve!
    Day 64 – 11/19 …..208.4….. Finally losing some water weight. I can’t wait to actually get to the fat!
    Day 65 – 11/20 …..208.4……Final moving day. Handing over the keys to my home and two businesses. I will be very busy unpacking over the next couple of weeks. I will not be able to focus on my diet so much, but I should be able to get in lots of movement!
    Day 66 – 11/21 .….208.4……
    Day 67 – 11/22 …..208.1…… Finally got internet straightened out in new home!
    Day 68 – 11/23 …..207.2…… Thankful for the drop. Traveling today for a new hot water heater. I will be careful with the carry-out at the restaurant but I will expect some water retention tomorrow.
    Day 69 – 11/24 …..207.2…… Shocked there is no after travel major damage.
    Day 70 – 11/25 …..206.2…… Burning it off. Diet just so-so.
    Day 71 – 11/26 …..206..6…… Frustrating!
    Day 72 – 11/27 …..207.6…… Not too bad after a Thanksgiving meal in the new house. Our view was unpacked boxes, but the meal was delicious. I can’t believe I pulled the kitchen together (just) enough to cook and bake! My son & I have so much to be grateful for this year so this was an important event for us.
    Day 73 – 11/28 …..206.4…… I’m very happy with this post-Thanksgiving weight as it goes back down. I will be adding 20 minutes of general dancing and/or Fitness Marshall to my routine starting soon!
    Day 74 – 11/29 …..xxxxx…… I actually forgot to weigh today. Wrapped and prepped for my DGS birthday party who turned 3. It was handled in a Covid-safe way. Cake & icecream that I couldn’t say no to, so hopefully not too much damage tomorrow.
    Day 75 – 11/30 …..207.2…… Back on track today. Those after-holiday late night cravings got to me last night. I realized after eating that I could easily have eaten much much less. Sometimes I fill my plate with the “old amounts” out of habit. I’ll have to watch that!

    Weight Loss in November……………….. 1.2 Lbs Lost.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..4.1 lbs Lost Total. Very Grateful.



    Day 76 – 12/01 …..207.6…… No TMI for 2 days now which I know is affecting the scale.
    Day 77 – 12/02 …..206..8…… I credit the bathroom activity. Diet could have been worse but could have been better too.
    Day 78 – 12/03 …..206.2…… I’m liking this!
    Day 79 – 12/04 …..203.6…… I hate to be graphic, but I peed so much during the night that I think this may strictly be fluid loss. When rehydrated, what will I actually weigh? We shall see…..
    Day 80 – 12/05 …..203.8…… Rehydrating after a big drop due to fluid loss. Getting in a little dancing on my Alexa.
    Day 81 – 12/06 …..203.4……The 203’s are for real????? Pleased as punch here.
    Day 82 – 12/07 …..202.6…… I tested it and it’s true. I just don’t need that many crackers in my soup! Keeping the calories lower and working hard at continued unpacking, wrapping presents and decorating too.
    Day 83 – 12/08 …..203.4…… A bit up today so I will buckle down!
    Day 84 - 12/09 …..204.0…..I need to start thanking people for their kindness when they bring over food, but lay it aside.
    Day 85 – 12/10….. 204.2…… Creeping up.
    Day 86 – 12/11 …..204.2…… I guess the same is better than a gain.
    Day 87 – 12/12 …..204.2…… Holding my own, I suppose.
    Day 88 – 12/13 …..203.2…… Lots of online shopping so more sitting than moving yesterday sadly. However, I kept the calories pretty low and the carbs very reasonable. I just wish I had not needed that peanut butter toast and milk late last night. Next time, ½ the serving size. I have got to stop relying on old amounts of food out of habit and actually use my natural cues to determine how much I need to eat. Old habits are hard to break! Visually the new amounts look so small, even on smaller plates. But in reality, the smaller versions are usually enough now!
    Day 89 – 12/14 …..203.4…… Christmas treats truly are irresistible.
    Day 90 – 12/15 …..205.0…… Spent time with a friend. Did we eat more than we talked? It sure looks like it. I will attempt to be better today. Blue skies ahead.
    Day 91 – 12/16 …..205.0…… Well thought-out meals. Snacks….eh…..not so much. I’ll try harder on that front today.
    Day 92 – 12/17 …..205.2…… Bread. Like Dawn, I just couldn’t seem to get enough food yesterday. I had bread at every meal to finish filling me up.
    Day 93 – 12/18 …..205.0…… I traveled out of town today for Christmas shopping. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 94 – 12/19 …..205.4… After travel weight.
    Day 95 – 12/20 …..206.0…… No activity yesterday other than wrapping and a little bit of housekeeping. Workman was here until 11:00 pm (slow but reasonably priced Charlie) . Then i was just hungry and tired. Charlie is back today. I hope it will not take all day and night to complete the tasks.
    Day 96 – 12/21 …..206.0……I’m planning on pre-prepping a special low calorie & low carb dinner today. I’ve got to try to erase some ounces off my behind. Tomorrow is baking day and fudge making with my daughter. I see disaster. No one knows me like I do. Just keeping it honest!
    Day 97 – 12/22 …..204.8…… Dropped a little weight overnight in anticipation for the baking and candy making today. My biggest weakness! (Even worse than donuts).
    Day 98 – 12/23 …..xxxxx……

    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. 60 year old female
    I live in South East British Columbia Canada
    MFP start date October 28.18 - SW 191
    Ultimate goal weight - 112 - 115

    My previous 3 rounds:
    The 1st one:
    Nov 22.19 ending February 29.20 – Start weight 158.1 EW 154.4 Total loss over 100 days: 3.7
    The 2nd one:
    March 01 - June 08.20 Start weight 154.4 EW 151.7 Total loss over 100 days 2.7 pounds
    The 3rd one:
    June 09 - September 16th Start weight 151.2 EW 142.3 Total loss over 100 days 8.9 pounds
    3 rounds of 100 days each total results = 15.3 pounds lost

    I started tracking my excess calories each day last round, those in the Green at the end of the tracking day. My results (based on 1200 calories per day) from 100 days were 78,627 - which over 100 days should lead to 7.86 pound loss, and I actually lost 8.9, so pretty good.

    Day 1: Thurs, 9/17: 141.7 - I expect to get a lot of activity on my trip, but today is a driving day so I will have a nice workout before I leave. 919 in the green

    Day 4: Sun 9/20 - 141.0 - My 60th birthday weight



    Day 95 – 12/20: 136.2 - Had a tonne of activity, but also ate a bunch of stuff with 2 friends (in my bubble) and not sure that I got the things tracked perfectly after. I will be strict today, and accept what ever number I get tomorrow morning. 940 in the Green
    Day 96 – 12/21: 137.2 - Going to keep it light until at least Christmas Eve. Saturday's indulgence showed up this morning. 291 in the Green
    Day 97 – 12/22: 137.1 - I didn't get very much activity in yesterday. Hoping to drop a couple of more ounces before holiday foods. An astounding 1426 in the Green.
    Day 98 – 12/23: 136.9 - I think that if it weren't so close to the end of our 100 that I would have been indulging in holiday stuff already. Floodgates might open after the Dec 25th weigh in. Shoveling pounds of snow for an hour yesterday on top of my workouts and 15,000 steps dropped me .2 pounds.
    Day 99 – 12/24:
    Day 100 - 12/25:

    @dawnbgethealthy

    It will be a fun day. She will be here after work. I wish I could say that I will only be tasting tidbits but I don't think I'm there yet. In all honesty, around the holidays I don't know if I ever will be. I will plan on watching my actual meals very closely to help offset the tasting and the gobbles. I will also try to get in a little fitness after she leaves (if I'm not too tired).

    Yes, I do that too. If I know that I will be having Ribs I work out double that day : - )
    I think that we all expect to indulge over the holidays, although try not to undo all of our hard work.
    I picture candy thermometers and stuff : - )
    Have fun!!!

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


    STARTING WEIGHT: 211.3

    Day 01 – 09/17 ….210.8…..Very Pleased. This is a nice way to start! Good luck everyone!
    Day 02 – 09/18 ....210.6….. Happy Dance!
    Day 03 – 09/19 ….211.2….. canned soup with crackers. Too much sodium but had no time to cook yesterday.
    Day 04 – 09/20 ….210.8….. Better!
    Day 05 - 09/21 …..211.0….. not a bad little increase after movie night with son and some pizza.
    Day 06 – 09/22 …..210.8….. Traveled today so tomorrow will be pitiful. Going to get very diligent to knock it back into the atmosphere. No extra fat allowed to hang around here. Time to go!
    Day 07 – 09/23 …..212.0….. After travel. I will work on this today.
    Day 08 – 09/24 …..210.8….. Traveled again but kept it to one meal and a small snack and I was rewarded!
    Day 09 – 09/25 …..211.6….. I hate gaining when there is no apparent reason why. Yesterday was a pretty good day. However, there was not much movement due to all the special meetings I had. So today I will focus on more movement and cautiously go to the grocery store for more water (which is a little scary on a Friday in this small tourist town). Hydration may be key today. Flush, flush, flush.
    Day 10 – 09/26 …..211.4…..
    Day 11 – 09/27 …..211.2….. I am not getting where I want to be in a very healthy way. Even with the scale going down I am not super happy. I know I avoided meals yesterday and just ate too much junk. It may have been lower calories overall and it may have caused a decrease on the scale but it is all about healthy and sustainable. I vow to have a better day today. One day at a time, right?
    Day 12 – 09/28 …..209.8…..Yay!!! Better meals, a bit better movement. I just gotta watch those bad snacks!
    Day 13 – 09/29 …..210.0….. Just a simple fluctuation. I had a very well-balanced day yesterday. Low cal for sure.
    Day 14 – 09/30 …..211.0….. Chinese food yesterday with leftovers today. Still down a tad from the start.
    Weight Loss in September……………….. 0.3 lb LOSS
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..0.3 Loss


    Day 15 – 10/01 …..211.0…..I finished the last of the Chinese food. Now time for healthier and less sodium!
    Day 16 – 10/02 …..209.0….. Whoosh! Practiced some IF yesterday and tried to keep the calories low (AS THEY SHOULD BE) . I hope today will be another good day!
    Day 17 - 10/03 …..210.4….. I salted my low sodium veggie soup because it tasted sweet and then I cheated with some dessert when I could have just had the soup and called IT dessert! Lesson learned. However, I am still down 1.6 in the last 10 days which is better than I’ve done in awhile so I will try to keep up the momentum. I am hydrating a lot today to offset any bloat.
    Day 18 – 10/04 …..210.0….. Going back down, even with challenges. #nevergiveup
    Day 19 – 10/05 …..211.6….. I ate healthy yesterday but dinner was not until 11:00 pm (busy day). Lots of steps also so this is a shock! No TMI this morning so that doesn’t help. Very disappointing but not disrupting. Staying on track today.
    Day 20 – 10/06 …..209.4….. Whoosh!
    Day 21 – 10/07 …..209.6….. A good day yesterday so this is likely a normal fluctuation.
    Day 22 – 10/08 …..209.8….. Another good day. The slight fluctuation must be from no TMI (potty) x 2 days. Otherwise, all is well. Good choices are being made. Not too much movement due to a pretty yucky foot injury but otherwise, all is well.
    Day 23 – 10/09 …..209.6…..Slightly better but my snacks were cheats last night. Working to stop the midnight madness!
    Day 24 – 10/10 …..210.0…..Fish fry last night. Today I will be extra careful. I am going to go look at Dawn’s videos right now. Pretty exited!
    Day 25 – 10/11 …..209.2….. Yay!
    Day 26 – 10/12 …..208.6….. Artificially low? We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 27 – 10/13 …..208.6….. I see I posted my stats yesterday on the wrong challenge. I guess I was just excited! I traveled today so I am afraid of tomorrow’s numbers, but I will try to stay positive and tackle whatever mean ol’ number that scale may bring.
    Day 28 – 10/14 …..209.2….. I’m actually quite pleased with this. Sometimes carbs pack on 2-3 pounds from one travel meal! As a diabetic, I always eat when traveling. I am sure I will always choose those lovely foods not available in my little home town. However, changing habits in some way IS good so I am trying to resign myself to smaller portions. Also a lighter calorie/carb day the day after. No need to keep the extra ounces (on my hips) right?
    Day 29 – 10/15 …..208.4….. God is Good and He has always had my back. Today is the first step in some life-changing things I have been working on. It puts me one step closer to where I need to be in my personal and professional life. I hope everyone will smile with (and for) me today. As far as my weight goes, I am not counting every carb and calorie again, just yet, but I am tweaking and making some important changes on this particular path of my journey. When all my resolutions are here, I will be able to focus again. It will be before Christmas I hope. Thanks to everyone for their continued support. Down almost a whole pound overnight and a bit lower than my pre-travel weight! I am estatic!
    Day 30 – 10/16 …..208.2….. I’ll take it!
    Day 31 – 10/17 …..207.6….. I am trying to make a better difference everyday in my diet, movement and attitude. I’m not 100% yet, some personal things continue to hold me back in time and energy, but I’m on my way!
    Day 32 – 10/18 …..208.2….. I was very careful and got in some extra movement. I did have garlic bread (2 slices) so I guess I deserve this. I am still carefully watching portions (otherwise).
    Day 33 – 10/19 …..207.4….. I enjoyed a new Deep Dish Pizza place in my little rural town. It was very good. I ate ½ of what I would normally eat and saved the rest for my dinner. No snacks at TV time to make up for the carbs/calories. It really helped and my weight has moved down! I will make today a great day!
    Day 34 – 10/20 …..207.0…..I made a few bad choices but stopped temptation in it’s tracks and made the actual decision to make better one’s for the rest of the day. So glad I did!
    Day 35 – 10/21 …..206.2….. I’m actually patting myself on the back today. So proud I have continued my changes. Yesterday I danced to one song on my Alexa and I did one Fitness Marshall (Sour Candy) with Lady Gaga. It felt like a 20 minute workout so I am out of shape but it was fun. I always love watching him!
    Day 36 – 10/22 …..207.6…..Well that Sux! I guess grilled cheese & tomato soup is off the menu in the near future! Having chili-dogs at a local bar/restaurant today with a friend. I will have to work my whole dietary day around the pre-planned lunch. I need more movement and water today too.
    Day 37 – 10/23 …..206.8….. I could have done without the French silk pie, or could I? Still trending down so I must be diligent!
    Day 38 – 10/24 …..207.8….. Lucky Charms for dinner is a no-no.
    Day 39 – 10/25 …..208.2…..A horrid day of grab & go eating. In fact it has been that way for the past few days. I MUST find time to cook but its pretty hard to do when most of my time lately has been away from home on projects. Tomorrow I travel far & wide to pick up my car from transmission shop downstate. I won’t be home until late evening. More weight!
    Day 40 – 10/26 …..208.2….. Feeling like a loser right now without losing.
    Day 41 – 10/27 …..210.4….. After travel weight. Fall is trying to get to me again with the pre-snow (bad roads) travel rush and with the warm & toasty comfort food. Too cold to walk and all that jazz. Knowledge is power! Today will be a good day.
    Day 42 – 10/28 …..209.2….. Working it back down again. Cha-Cha!
    Day 43 – 10/29 …..207.9….. I don’t think I entirely deserve the nice drop on the scale but I’m grateful. Skipped breakfast with a fast, very low cal lunch. We won’t talk about the rest.
    Day 44 – 10/30 …..208.4….. I woke up in the middle of the night and ate a tremendously large meal before going back to sleep. I was starving! Very unusual. Early morning weigh-in afterward.
    Day 45 – 10/31 …..208.4…..

    Weight Loss in October……………….. 2.6 lbs Lost
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..2.9 lbs LOST so far Total


    Day 46 – 11/01 …..207.4….. Even after sneaking some Haloween Candy so I am very happy with this. A very light dinner helped.
    Day 47 – 11/02 …..208.6….. I ate 3 meals yesterday. They were pretty healthy but I usually only eat two and a snack at night with TV so I know it was higher calories than typical.
    Day 48 – 11/03 …..207.6….. What a roller-coaster ride this is!
    Day 49 – 11/04 …..?????….. I actually forgot to weigh today before the coffee. Yesterday was an above-average day so the scale would probably have smiled a little bit on me.
    Day 50 – 11/05 …..206.6….. At the halfway mark in the challenge and feeling very happy with my progress. Will this 206 hold? Stay tuned.

    ******************************HALFWAY MARK**************************

    Day 51 – 11/06 …..205.2….. Yay! I’m going to keep this train going and plan my meals carefully today!
    Day 52 – 11/07 …..205.2.….. Blood sugar drop last night really did me in. I tried to be more in control of the situation but it still requires sugar and carbs to fix very quickly. I managed to bring it back up without being totally ridiculous. Thankful for that. I will plan more carefully today and avoid that situation tonight, I hope.
    Day 53 – 11/08 ……206.0…..Must have been hidden high sodium. My menu wasn’t bad yesterday and my movement was increased.
    Day 54 – 11/09 ….206.2….. More salty food. Today is a very big day in my life. I will have little control of anything but I will do my best.
    Day 55 – 11/10 …..207.0….. Pizza & icecream during a celebration. Kicking my own butt today.
    Day 56 – 11/11 …..207.4….. Reading my posts from various challenges, I think I’ve found a pattern of self-destruction. Every time I have a glucose drop (very scary) I end up eating high carb or sugary things at night which I believe sub-consciensly (spelled wrong) caused me to eat wrong and too much at night to avoid an episode. I am going to work around this but it won’t be easy. That survival instinct we have as humans is very strong and hard to manipulate.
    Day 72 – 11/12 …..207.4….. Same
    Day 58 – 11/13 ……207.6….. You CAN overeat healthy low cal foods. I was STARVING yesterday. Woke up STARVING again today. I hope for a better day but I am trying to pay attention to my body's cues to avoid sugar drops. Fear changes things and it's a hill I climb sometimes in my journey. Figuring it out.
    Day 59 – 11/14 …..210.0…..A neighbor brought me a Chinese Dinner yesterday from out of town. Half for lunch. Half for dinner. I thought he was my friend. : /
    Day 60 – 11/15 …..208.6….. I was careful yesterday due to some bloat and it helped. I will stay diligent today. I am proud that I turned down icecream when everyone else had it. I had a glass of cold water instead.
    Day 61 – 11/16 …..207.2….I am still working down the bloat. Michigan is closing down restaurants starting Tuesday night/Wednesday morning at midnight. I see restaurants in my day for tomorrow and Tuesday for me and my son. Just like last time, nearly all of our very few restaurants in this very small town will completely close, even if carry out is allowed. Carry out only is just not enough to sustain small town places. I will try to be mindful but I think Pizza will be one choice and that is usually not good. So, my plan is to watch the quantities. I will survive and overcome any damage.
    Day 62 – 11/17 …..209.0….. This is making me crazy. I know I need more water. Hardly shedding any at all and that is very unusual for a diabetic!
    Day 63 – 11/18 …..209.0….. Bad choices on the run with my busy life right now. I can’t wait for things to improve!
    Day 64 – 11/19 …..208.4….. Finally losing some water weight. I can’t wait to actually get to the fat!
    Day 65 – 11/20 …..208.4……Final moving day. Handing over the keys to my home and two businesses. I will be very busy unpacking over the next couple of weeks. I will not be able to focus on my diet so much, but I should be able to get in lots of movement!
    Day 66 – 11/21 .….208.4……
    Day 67 – 11/22 …..208.1…… Finally got internet straightened out in new home!
    Day 68 – 11/23 …..207.2…… Thankful for the drop. Traveling today for a new hot water heater. I will be careful with the carry-out at the restaurant but I will expect some water retention tomorrow.
    Day 69 – 11/24 …..207.2…… Shocked there is no after travel major damage.
    Day 70 – 11/25 …..206.2…… Burning it off. Diet just so-so.
    Day 71 – 11/26 …..206..6…… Frustrating!
    Day 72 – 11/27 …..207.6…… Not too bad after a Thanksgiving meal in the new house. Our view was unpacked boxes, but the meal was delicious. I can’t believe I pulled the kitchen together (just) enough to cook and bake! My son & I have so much to be grateful for this year so this was an important event for us.
    Day 73 – 11/28 …..206.4…… I’m very happy with this post-Thanksgiving weight as it goes back down. I will be adding 20 minutes of general dancing and/or Fitness Marshall to my routine starting soon!
    Day 74 – 11/29 …..xxxxx…… I actually forgot to weigh today. Wrapped and prepped for my DGS birthday party who turned 3. It was handled in a Covid-safe way. Cake & icecream that I couldn’t say no to, so hopefully not too much damage tomorrow.
    Day 75 – 11/30 …..207.2…… Back on track today. Those after-holiday late night cravings got to me last night. I realized after eating that I could easily have eaten much much less. Sometimes I fill my plate with the “old amounts” out of habit. I’ll have to watch that!

    Weight Loss in November……………….. 1.2 Lbs Lost.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..4.1 lbs Lost Total. Very Grateful.



    Day 76 – 12/01 …..207.6…… No TMI for 2 days now which I know is affecting the scale.
    Day 77 – 12/02 …..206..8…… I credit the bathroom activity. Diet could have been worse but could have been better too.
    Day 78 – 12/03 …..206.2…… I’m liking this!
    Day 79 – 12/04 …..203.6…… I hate to be graphic, but I peed so much during the night that I think this may strictly be fluid loss. When rehydrated, what will I actually weigh? We shall see…..
    Day 80 – 12/05 …..203.8…… Rehydrating after a big drop due to fluid loss. Getting in a little dancing on my Alexa.
    Day 81 – 12/06 …..203.4……The 203’s are for real????? Pleased as punch here.
    Day 82 – 12/07 …..202.6…… I tested it and it’s true. I just don’t need that many crackers in my soup! Keeping the calories lower and working hard at continued unpacking, wrapping presents and decorating too.
    Day 83 – 12/08 …..203.4…… A bit up today so I will buckle down!
    Day 84 - 12/09 …..204.0…..I need to start thanking people for their kindness when they bring over food, but lay it aside.
    Day 85 – 12/10….. 204.2…… Creeping up.
    Day 86 – 12/11 …..204.2…… I guess the same is better than a gain.
    Day 87 – 12/12 …..204.2…… Holding my own, I suppose.
    Day 88 – 12/13 …..203.2…… Lots of online shopping so more sitting than moving yesterday sadly. However, I kept the calories pretty low and the carbs very reasonable. I just wish I had not needed that peanut butter toast and milk late last night. Next time, ½ the serving size. I have got to stop relying on old amounts of food out of habit and actually use my natural cues to determine how much I need to eat. Old habits are hard to break! Visually the new amounts look so small, even on smaller plates. But in reality, the smaller versions are usually enough now!
    Day 89 – 12/14 …..203.4…… Christmas treats truly are irresistible.
    Day 90 – 12/15 …..205.0…… Spent time with a friend. Did we eat more than we talked? It sure looks like it. I will attempt to be better today. Blue skies ahead.
    Day 91 – 12/16 …..205.0…… Well thought-out meals. Snacks….eh…..not so much. I’ll try harder on that front today.
    Day 92 – 12/17 …..205.2…… Bread. Like Dawn, I just couldn’t seem to get enough food yesterday. I had bread at every meal to finish filling me up.
    Day 93 – 12/18 …..205.0…… I traveled out of town today for Christmas shopping. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
    Day 94 – 12/19 …..205.4… After travel weight.
    Day 95 – 12/20 …..206.0…… No activity yesterday other than wrapping and a little bit of housekeeping. Workman was here until 11:00 pm (slow but reasonably priced Charlie) . Then i was just hungry and tired. Charlie is back today. I hope it will not take all day and night to complete the tasks.
    Day 96 – 12/21 …..206.0……I’m planning on pre-prepping a special low calorie & low carb dinner today. I’ve got to try to erase some ounces off my behind. Tomorrow is baking day and fudge making with my daughter. I see disaster. No one knows me like I do. Just keeping it honest!
    Day 97 – 12/22 …..204.8…… Dropped a little weight overnight in anticipation for the baking and candy making today. My biggest weakness! (Even worse than donuts).
    Day 98 – 12/23 …..205.0…… Not too bad after baking late into the night.
    Day 99 – 12/24 …..xxxxx……
    Day 100[/color=darkturquoise – 12/25 (Final Weight In)……xxxxx……
