I like to track averages due to my wild fluctuations. For the same reason, I like to weigh daily so I can see the lows from time to time. It gives me hope.
Month/Day: Weight / Comment
09/24: 208.2 / Starting this round in one of my prototypical valleys. Maybe I can try to get a little lower. I would love to touch my maintenance range a time or two this round. 😊 Having lunch with a couple friends, outdoors today. Going to be a nice one weather-wise. I will try to choose a salad instead of the awesome burgers they have at this place.
09/25: 209 / Yesterday I chose half sandwich and salad for lunch. It was a fancy BLT. Delicious. For supper DW had planned BLT’s. Yay! No evening snacks.
09/28: 211 / I was not near a computer over the weekend so I am post three days today. Saturday was a feast at a friend’s house. Fried Fish, baked beans (special kind with smoked sausage and apple pie filling in it) , corn bread and dessert.
Yesterday I went crappie fishing with DW and we fried up our catch for supper! Two nights in a row with fried fish. Gave some to DS’s family and to our neighbor, and, leftovers tonight.
I ate a lot, but it is also VERY salty. Blew up my average for this round. 😊
09/29: 209 / rinsed a little salt from my system and stayed under calories.
Starting weight 170.1
Long term goal 125
Goal weight this round 167
09/27- 167.1 I ate a bunch of stuff I shouldn't have yesterday. Thought for sure I would have gained today. It will probably show up tomorrow.
09/28- 168.3 I seen this coming, so I just have to be extra vigilant the next few days.
09/29- 167.9 I am always amazed at how fast the weight goes up and how slow it goes down.

This will be my 33rd round of the 10 day challenge. I started at round 95
Round 95 My 1st Round EW - 158.4
Round 126 My 32nd Round EW 142.9
9/24/20 - 144.0 - This seems high, and I am feeling quite lean, so hopefully it will come back down quickly
9/25/20 - 141.8 - Yesterday's weight alarmed me, glad that it seems like it was a blip.
9/26/20 - 141.6
9/27/20 - 143.6 - Had a great big Rib Eye + Prawns in butter sauce last night. This was my delayed birthday meal that I couldn't have on my trip. Maybe worth the 2 lb weight gain.
9/28/20 - 143.1 - Working to bring the number back down.
9/29/20 - 143.9

Round 124 = 173.4 (4.6 lbs lost)
Round 125 = 171.6 (1.8 lbs lost)
Round 126 = 171.0 (0.6 lbs lost)
09/24 = 171.0 (no change from yesterday) being having an inner ear issues this week so haven't been able to go running, hoping to get a nice run in today. This round ends the day before my 17th wedding anniversary, so would like to reach my 1st major goal of being in the 160s by then.
09/25 = 171.0 (no change from yesterday)
09/26 = 171.0 (no change from yesterday)
09/27 = DNW (slept in too late to weigh)
09/28 = 170.6 (down .4 lbs) I did all my weekend posts on my phone and when I logged in this morning on my laptop could not find any of them, maybe they never posted?? Anyway, I got in my 3 weekly runs on Friday, Saturday, & Sunday - none of them felt "great" but at least I stayed committed to being consistent to my scheduled runs. This week I am going to start to get back into strength training on the days I'm not running. Hopefully it well help make my runs stronger and get this scale moving again in the right direction! Still doing well with IF 16/8 (some days longer) and but need to be better with my AF days, goal is 4 per week but having only been getting 3 AF days the last 2 weeks which I know is affecting the scale.
09/29 = 171.6 (up 1.0 lbs from yesterday) I ate within my calories yesterday but instead of starting my fast at 7 p.m. as I do most nights, I had popcorn watching a show with my husband around 11 p.m. So not surprised to see this bump up on the scale. So today, I will be drinking lots of water and OMAD, fasting until dinner, hoping for close to a 20 hour fast. Will try to get out for a run today but may put it off until tomorrow if I feel too sluggish.

9/24/20 - 182.6 - ~2100!!! - Just. Too. Much. Food.
My creativity group came over for what may be our last in-person meeting before it’s too cold outside, and we made it a meal — teriyaki chicken, rice, salad, and chocolate chip s’mores cookie cake. Yikes! I didn’t eat big amounts, but lots of calories and the chicken was very salty. But it was lovely to be together, so all good, and I’m back on track today.
9/25/20 - 182.6 - ~2000!!! - don’t ask about snacks 😡
I thought I’d be back on track yesterday, but for whatever messed up reason, I ate everything in sight all evening. I think I need to turn off the news! Anyway, I had turkey sausages for breakfast, and we’re getting smoked chicken for dinner to support a fundraiser for a cause we support — going for protein and fat to counter all the carbs I’ve been snarfing the past two days. I do feel puffy, so I know some of this is water, but not all. I’m hoping all the p & f will make be feel more satisfied. Happy Friday, all! Enjoy this final weekend of Sept. 🍁🌻🐝🧶
9/26/20 - 182.8 - 1645 - 4 triscuits
Calories a bit high yesterday, but better, and healthy, even with my little Triscuit snack. Macros about where I want them. Day by day. I did spend an hour cleaning up my side of the garage, organizing my shelves full of garden tools, pots, references, paint and painting tools, and other miscellaneous garage things and tossing stuff I don’t need anymore. Made me feel more in control! I’m sort of working my way through the house — my closet is partly done. It’s supposed to be nice and warm today and tomorrow, so I plan so be outdoors as much as possible, and have friends coming to hang out in the garden both days, before we can’t get together. I have a writing deadline crashing down on me, so that’s first indoors, so I’ll finish closets next week. When I get every little thing organized and decluttered, I know I’ll feel better! Funny how having our surroundings in order can affect our eating, attitude, work, even play. I’m also seriously thing of taking 6 weeks away from social media for sanity and to see how much more I get done without it. I’ll stay here, though. 🙂 Way tmi, right? Have a great weekend, all!
9/27/20 - 181.8 - 1285
This is a nice surprise. We had a pretty caloric dinner last night—baked chicken with broccoli, green pea fusili, and Alfredo sauce. But it was so satisfying, I didn’t snack in the evening — yay! Leftovers tonight, so I’m planning a light lunch. It’s gorgeous out, so I’m off for a walk. Supposed to cool down and rain tomorrow. Enjoy your Sunday!
9/28/20 - 182 - 2045 😳 - 🍨
Ok, it’s Monday, a new week, a new start. Still fighting the snack monster.
9/29/20 - 181.6 - 1545 - 🍌
Better. It rained all day yesterday, but I did get a short walk in the evening. Today is chilly but bright, so I’m off for a walk along the river and then to buy soil for my new raised beds to get them ready for spring. I may even plant some bulbs in them this fall. 🌹🌷🌹🌷 Planning a nice salad for lunch and dunno for dinner. 🤓

9/24: DNW ~ Just didn’t have a chance to weigh in. Busy day. But ate reasonably and hit my steps, so counting those as wins!
9/25: 266.4 ~ Planning to make actual progress in this round! Last round was more maintaining than losing.
9/27: 266.0 ~ I haven’t been logging calories lately. But I logged everything yesterday, and it felt like a step in the right direction again, after weeks of a diet break.
9/28: 267.0 ~ I didn’t drink enough water yesterday. Caught up with me! But I’ve already accomplished today’s workout and today is going to be better. 🙂
9/29: 266.6 ~ Another good day of tracking yesterday. Trying to make that back into a habit.9

Round 126 SW 164.8 EW ????
9/24 164.8 walked 3.04 Third day in a row at the same weight. I moved the scale to make sure it was level and after 3 times the weight was still 164.8. I have to keep watching the sodium and I think I'll be down in a day or two. And calories, obviously but those have been in check all week.
9/25 166.1 hiked 3.25 I can only assume it's the vigorous hike or maybe the sodium was a little high. I didn't think it was but when I looked this morning, those biscuits had 550mg each. Before I had a 2nd one I checked calories and I was fine but did not even LOOK at sodium I mean it's a buttermilk biscuit how much salt does it need.
9/26 166.0 hiked 2.51 Short hike, I had a bunch of stuff to do Friday night and needed to wrap up. So my unexpected gain was due to TOM coming a week and a half early. I'm 51 years old, this TOM can wrap up any time now.
9/27 165.9 hiked 4.11 Nice Saturday morning long hike. I should have gone 5 but I was picking up the baby and didn't have time.
9/28 165.8 walked 3.03 More than half of that was in the rain. A nice weekend. Spent more time with the baby and the BF. He says bring her over anytime. His kids are in their early 20's in college. He's ready for grandkids so I guess I'll share mine She doesn't really have a "grandfather" figure in her life. Both kids have Dads that are either out of the picture or drunk most of the time. He made sure to have toddler friendly snacks (and not just cookies although cookies did play a part). If I didn't already love him, this would push me over the top.
9/29 165.0 No walk A very Monday-y Monday. Didn't have time to walk after work, too many errands to run then the Chiefs were on (we won). It's beautiful today I hope to get in a long walk. At the car dealer now getting my oil changed. Ain't modern technology great. I'm working from the car dealer and updating my status here.

09/24- 96.1 woosh but didn't sleep well today so hard to resist any high fat food. Will avoid the scale till saturday at least.
09/25- Ok yesterday was snacking (nothing major, proably maintenance), but tonight there are some plans for dinner that I can't really control so I can't compensate even though I am not too hungry today. Will take it and continue on
09/26- 96.0 Yesterday kept it reasonable though I am not sure how much I succeded. The scale showed potentially good despite, but that just means tomorrow I will get the bloating. So let see if I can sustain not weighing till Tue! Dinner was semi clean but we were having a bbq with friends and some icecream might have found it's way to my dinner plate.
09/27- weekend! 10k hike and low cal clean eating should compensate for the last few days
09/28- Not much walk. Not much food.
09/29- 95.7Weigh day!✓ stress at work leads to snacking but healthy ones (for now...)
10/03- Weigh day!9
@playhardkf2017 - I had found the interstitial cystitis this past weekend while I was trying to figure out what to do about my symptoms. I am wondering if the injury I sustained years ago set me on the path to develop this as I get older. My relatively minor symptoms have been getting worse over the past year or so until it got so bad the weekend before I thought I may have to go to the hospital. I really feel for your Mom since there doesn't seem to be any real cure for the disease.
I know with her it flares up and down. She'll get the spasms and pain etc. There are different triggers that some people have with it. I'm not sure if the injury could have done it, but it is essentially inflammation of that whole area, so maybe? I hope you feel better and live in an area where the doctors are well versed in it!

Its very uncomfortable to move and can't even lift my coffee cup to my face without pain. Deep breaths are out of the question. No walks until I'm feeling 100% again, especially with the pup ):
That sounds like broken rib(s). My exact symptoms when I boke some several years ago after a fall. They really don't do much for them these days, but you still may want to have it checked by hospital or doctor to make sure there are no complications. Do you remember anything happening that could have caused a broken rib or two?
@jaccimc63 I use AZO. It usually catches it before it becomes an infection. Once infected, only antibiotics will cure. I hope this helps.4

Happy fall and another round for me! Still on a good track with motivation and consistency
Goal for this round: to lose 1.5 lb, to get to 186.x
I plan to keep my calories around 12-1300 each day and continue drinking lots of water and green tea.

Day, Weight, Comment
9/24/20 - 187.8 to start this round, inching downward. I had a very hungry day yesterday too which made me think about the long term plan. I hope my body can adjust to eating less overall calories in the long run bc I don't want to end right back where I started. I am going to work on eating some volume veggies in the meantime. Estimated total calories 1351.
9/25/20 - 187.4 I should be more excited about it but.. total estimated cals yesterday 1292 so not bad. Need more water today.
9/26/20 - 187.6 hmmm. In good news, got an hour walk in this morning while my youngest was at volleyball practice. Since it was Friday yesterday I celebrated with some wine and chocolate last night. Total calories 1601, higher than my goal , but lower than maintenance calories so I'm ok with that.
9/27/20 - 186.4 super excited about this number. hope it sticks! I'm getting very close to my goal for this round! total estimated calories for yesterday 1298. I did have a glass of wine while playing a board game with my family but plan on limiting for the rest of this week until my girl's night in. For health reasons it is recommended that I avoid alcohol (reduces chance of cancer recurrence) but sometimes it comes down to a quality of life issue. I don't want to live the rest of my life without being able to enjoy something nice once in a while. Same thing with dieting I guess. Have a little piece of cake and move on with your life.. it's what you do most of the time that counts.
9/28/20 - 186.6 not bad considering I had rice with lunch yesterday, I don't eat a ton of carbs so usually when I do it is reflected on the scale. Total estimated calories yesterday: 1349 I'm so close to getting into the "overweight" category, I hope I can make it by the end of this round.
9/29/20 - 187.6 A whole pound up from the day before. Total calories yesterday 1595 because I had an apple turnover for my afternoon snack. Supposedly I still had 244 left due to exercise so I'm not sweating it but I need to dial it in for today. still sitting on my trend line though so that's something.
10/1/20 - Girl's night

Goal -150 Alcohol only on weekends, exercise daily, plenty of water, no bread.
9/24-162-Walked 6.5 miles. Made turkey meatloaf with mashed cauliflower and gravy. I went out after dinner to finish up my walk and almost stepped on a rather large king snake. Eeek! I was done walking for the evening.
9/25-160-Yay. No walk, took the day off. Light dinner.
9/26-160-Whew! Biked 10 miles then drove round trip 5 hours to a funeral by the sea, husband wanted hamburgers on the way home. Waves wear huge and it was a beautiful day.
9/27-160-Whew, again! Made hummus yesterday.
9/28-162-BBQed ribs, sewed a lot, too hot to walk. Off to quilting class this morning.
9/29-162-Sat in a quilt class all day, then grocery shopped. Still, to hot to exercise, but will start today off with a bike ride!7
@prehistoricmoongoddess If you edit from early morning to late night, be sure to change AM to PM.When I get a lot of pink (awake time) that has been the problem.

We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19
What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.
This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

9/24 117.0 *16 hour fast broken at 11:30AM Had a lovely evening with friends yesterday. I made Mexican pork chops with rice and made myself Mexican cauliflower rice. I did eat a little real rice and a partial serving of ice cream (def not keto) making it another higher carb day. It’s all about learning what I can enjoy ON OCCASION and still maintain below my goal. Additionally, I’m working out at the gym an PT so hope I’m getting some muscle back. *15.5 hour fast done.
9/26 117.0 Talked to PT guy yesterday and since I’m back to the gym, seeking the machines that duplicate what I’m doing at PT, I’m going to go it alone. If I need to, I can get a referral back to PT. There are a few exercises that I will to continue at home, too. I feel so much better than I have for almost 2 years!
9/27 116.0 I only ate one meal yesterday and didn’t snack. I just wasn’t hungry. Short gym session and haircut - first since COVID, over 29 weeks
9/28 115.5 Early morning blood draw. No gym 😢
9/29 117.5. Totally expected. KFC for lunch yesterday. EPL for lunch with the girls today, then I’m fasting for ?? hours.6

09/23 …..212.0….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
09/24 …..210.8 ….. Quite a long travel yesterday but my time was so limited, I missed a meal or two. Even with the restaurant stop it turned out a loss on the scale!
09/25 …..211.6 ….. I’m honestly not sure why this is up. I had two healthy meals yesterday (not large) and one Atkins bar for a snack. However, I did have a lot fewer steps and plenty of sitting in meetings yesterday. Today I will try to move more and focus on hydration.
09/26 …..211.4 ….. Too many bad snacks yesterday and last night but more movement & water so it helped.
09/27 …..211.2 ….. I don’t know why I started buying such junk food snacks. As a diabetic, I don’t need them and neither does my son. I vow to stop it starting now! Back to my healthier snacks and meals that I actually miss! I am lucky that my weight has crept down a bit again today. Honestly a lack of good meals and small junk sessions led to less eating overall yesterday and it is not a good way to get where I need to go. Healthy today!
09/28 …..209.8 ….. My snacks were still kinda bad, but my meals were thoughtful and satisfying. A touch more movement helped too and there is always the benefit of TMI when a day has been skipped. Let’s hope this trend continues downward.
09/29 …..210.0 ….. Must be a normal fluctuation. I had a very good day yesterday with my eating plan.

Highest lifetime weight: 138 lbs. August 2011

Goal weight for this round: I really want to see 113 this round but I’m not sure it will happen because of where I’m at in my cycle. Getting back to 114 would be nice though. Darn vacation weekend away last round.
Another goal: Embrace the scale fluctuations and not get flustered.
09/24 115.4 We did a nice soccer workout this morning and my body also felt good from my run/walk workout yesterday. My food was pretty on point yesterday and I have good feelings for today as well. I think breakfast will be yogurt, a white peach, and granola on top. I’m not completely sure of what the rest of the day will bring. We finally got a diagnosis yesterday for my mother in law after almost 6 months of various procedures and such. The outlook is good even with it being cancer. The process will suck but there is hope for a good outcome 😊. So, we are all just feeling a little relieved right now but still processing it all. Any ways, I’m just feeling grateful for my own health right now and the fact I get to live with my in-laws and help any way possible. I’m thinking with the added stress, I’m going to focus on trying to lose but be happy if I maintain. The added stress of not losing won’t help me in any way, so if I don’t worry about it…it’s all good. Have a good day and give an extra hug to those you can!
09/25 115.0 We went for a nice walk this morning. I have a training for work and then I’m done at 12 today. Then, I’m going apple picking with my inlaws and hoping it’s quiet there. I’m excited to make a healthy apple crisp tomorrow with our apples! Have a good weekend!
09/26 115.0 Apple picking was great yesterday. The orchard was nice and quiet and we were there for about an hour. My food yesterday was on point within my log and I had enough calories in the bank for a cider donut as a snack and apple crisp for dessert. When I made the apple crisp, I weighed everything out to create a recipe in MFP. After creating a recipe, I created a food in MFP so I can just weigh my portions and enter how many grams it is resulting in a more accurate entry.
Instead of using flour in crumbly topping I used oats and oat fiber, which added a nice dose of fiber in addition to the apples. I didn’t skimp on butter but I only had to use about 4 tbs worth. I left the apple skins on as well because I didn’t feel like peeling them. It wasn’t the most decadent apple crisp around but it sure was tasty! For 277 grams it clocked in at 324calories, 10.4 g fat, 63 carbs, 14.7 g fiber, and 2.4 g protein.
For today, I plan on riding the spin bike, organizing my clothes, cleaning up my work space/office, and doing a few other things around the house. Have a happy Saturday everyone!
09/27 116.6 Salt plus edging into heaviest part of my cycle. That’s life I suppose. I know it’s not real weight because after my workout yesterday I was 113.8 lbs “dry”. We got takeout for lunch yesterday the components were healthy except for the salt. It was a bi bim bab bowl which had brown rice, carrots, shitake mushrooms, water spinach, daikon radish I think?, a bit of marinated beef, an egg and another vegetable I can’t remember. The dish was delicious but high in salt. I also has some Tom Yum soup on the side. Then for dinner I made homemade macaroni and cheese. So it was just a salty day but on the bright side my calories were in check.
We went for a nice walk this morning and then I jumped in our portable sauna contraption to help rid some of that salt and water weight! This morning’s breakfast was yogurt with fruit and some apple crisp from Friday. My snack will be more fruit that needs to be used from our CSA last week but I think I’ll put some on top of cottage cheese so I have some protein with my snack. I’m roasting a chicken with veggies for dinner tonight. So hopefully I’ll be back down tomorrow 😊.
09/28 115.8 Back down it goes. I did a killer workout this morning consisting of run a mile walk a mile and the last mile was up and down hills at the soccer field. On our walk this weekend my husband was talking about how he was thinking we should get take out once a week and then I proposed we get it every other week. We talked about it and how it just messes with me so much and once a week seems like a lot for me. So, we met in the middle and decided on take-out about every 10 days. My next goal with that is to try to choose lower sodium options and eat something healthy like a salad before so I’m less starving prior. Therefore leading me to eat less of the higher sodium meal. In reality take-out food is not an option for us to eliminate because my husband and I are decently addicted to Thai food lol. So it’s all about balance right?
09/29 114.6 Whoosh whoosh. Went for a nice walk this morning coming in at just under five miles. Today’s breakfast was some yogurt topped with leftover “healthy” apple crisp and a side of cottage cheese because I had less Greek yogurt in the container than I thought. I wanted to boost the protein content a bit for some extra staying power. My snack will be a chickpea cake batter dip I made because I was craving cake batter on Sunday and wanted to try making one of those “healthy” chickpea dips. It turned out decent. I wouldn’t serve it at a party because it definitely has a touch of a chickpea flavor… but it does the trick for me especially when dipped with apple slices. Dinner tonight will be some sort of stir fry with green beans, eggplant, shitake mushrooms, and possibly flank steak. Yum! Have a good day!

Round 126 goal(s): Any loss would be fantastic. I got through my previous plateau at the end of last round.
9/24: 221.8 (+0.4)/18.7 (0.0). This is the first slight uptick for me in the past few days, but I'm not going to let it get me down. I'm having lunch at the office today with a couple of coworkers; I have both chosen something relatively healthy, and I am not "breaking my fast" this morning until lunch. My wife made me an extra plate of vegetables last night after I was done eating. If I'm going to go "a little over" in calories for a specific reason, I could have done worse, I guess.
9/25: 221.2 (-0.6)/18.7 (0.0). I'm feeling good food-wise right now. Yesterday could have been mess, but I was good; healthy food, good portion. My wife wants to get take-out tonight from a place that we get salads from. I'll get a delicious chicken cobb. Things are working again, for the most part. I still can't wait until I can fully get back into exercise. I'm happy that I've been losing pounds, but I'm really missing the positive effects that exercise has on weight loss and my overall well-being.
9/26: 220.2 (-1.0)/18.5 (-0.2). My wife and I are arguing. I'm not even sure about what, to be honest. It's not going to be the end of the world, but it feels pretty $#!++y in the moment. That being said, I'm almost out of the 220s, which is REALLY exciting. I'm going to try to keep myself busy today with something other than stuffing my face. Usually, on this kind of day, I would park myself on the couch and watch TV all day. Instead, I'll head over to my sister-in-law's and get the rest of our stuff from there (we stored a bit in her garage before we moved into our house almost 1.5 years ago).
9/27: 222.0 (+1.8)/18.8 (+0.3). My rough day yesterday ended up okay, but I definitely ate more than I should have. That being said, my weigh-in yesterday was likely artificially low. I'm not going to let either one bother me. I'm seeing my in-laws today for a bit, and I'm sure they'll want food involved. I'm going to be disciplined today. I may even eat before we go over there, and skip whatever it might be that they try to shove down my throat. I still hate seeing a bad weigh-in; I could feel all the icky internal dialogue/emotions as I looked at the scale. But this is the place I need to come right after, no matter what the scale says. I'm in this for the long haul.
9/28: 221.4 (-0.6)/18.7 (-0.1).
9/29: 221.4 (0.0)/18.7 (0.0). I had a weird day eating yesterday. I did not have a bite until about 3pm because I had a dentist appointment at 12. My wife brought home In-N-Out for Linner, including fries (even though I did not ask for them). I snacked later for dinner. Things will get back to normal today, even though tonight is the first Presidential debate. My wife has informed me that she will need to have a few drinks while it's occurring; I will be completely sober (for better or worse).
