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
11/03: 211.0 / Clearly, I can maintain the proximity of 210. (If you see my recent history in the spoiler.) And, I do like my bod better now than I did at 240. But, I am trying to see if I can muster the discipline to get to that 205 plateau.
11/05: 210.0 / I looked right at the bag of leftover Halloween candy and then looked away. In fact, it is hanging in the pantry and it seemed to reach out and brush my shoulder. Brazen temptress. I gave it the cold shoulder.
Another three-day weekend coming up with friends. Our fellowship usually revolves around some form of exercise (hiking, pickleball, yoga, biking), food (+ alcohol) and cards (bid euchre, rummy). There are ALWAYS piles and bins of naughty things to eat between meals.
Upon reflection, I am amazed how no ten-day challenge passes without involvement of some festival of food. First world problem.
11/11: 212.2 / Had a fun weekend. Lots of bulk food and salt. On my way back to discipline. I see I have missed reading 202 posts from you all. Not sure I will be able to lay eyes on all of them.
11/12: 210.0 / Ending on a lower weight, but a higher ten day average.

Round 129 BW: 213.6
Round 130 BW: 209.2
Round 131 BW: 211.2
Round 131 Goal: 207.8
1. Run/walk 12 miles with Tony (see profile pic). 3.8+1.4+3.53+3.51+3.73= 15.97
2. Strength train 3 times.
3. Stretch/tone with Essentrics 3 times (check it out - I LOVE this program)
4. Log every morsel of food 5 days.
Round 130 was a bust - intermittent internet, not focused, candy, Tony was lame, no shortage of excuses.
11/5 216.8 OUCH. Too many margaritas. This is getting ridiculous.

11/06: 290.4 (-.6 oz) ⬇️
11/07: 290.4 ↔️ No loss is better than a gain! 😊
11/08: 290.2 (-0.2 oz) ⬇️ still losing at a tortoise pace 🐢 Very slowly. But at least I'm losing and not gaining. 🙂 Trying to stay positive. Won't be weighing in tomorrow or posting. it's a very busy day for me will be back Tuesday.
11/10: 290.0 (-2 oz)⬇️ MFP give me a daily calorie limit of 1,520 and I've been staying at or just below this amount. I've decided to cut 220 calories from that amount to 1,300 calories a day to see if this will help me lose weight better. Also, yesterday I started keeping track of my daily steps. I'm aiming for 3,300 to 4,000 steps a day and hopefully, build from there. Also, increasing my water intake and will see how this works out. 😊
11/11: 289.6 (-4 oz)⬇️ Will at least I'm out of the 90's finally. 🙂 One more day for this round, let's see what happens tomorrow. 🤔

Day/Weight/Calories Previous Day/Walking/Comment
11/3 - 182.8 - 1521
Calories still higher than my goal, but lowest of the past two weeks, so a good start. No snacks last night, but I did have a modest serving of pumpkin crunch cake, hence the calories. But all good!
11/4 - 182.8 - 1524
Still didn’t get my calories to my goal, but below maintenance and so far I’ve avoided stress-eating my way through the election, so good. I went for a lovely walk at one of my favorite parks. We have a string of sunny 60s days in the forecast so I’ll be sticking to the walking routine.
11/5 - 182.8 - 1624
Oops. I had some popcorn with butter last night and chickpea linguini with clam sauce for dinner, a little salty — feel puffy this morning. But all good. I’m off for a walk, then some garden work and stowing outdoor furniture for the winter. Mike the cat and I had fun watching a chipmunk run back and forth by the sliding door this morning while I had my coffee. Building his winter stash!
11/6 - 182.8 - 1627
Ok, stuck is better than gaining, and I did have a fun-size PayDay stress bar 😁 yesterday. Gorgeous day here — I’m off for a walk.
— I was just thinking yesterday about training again for a race, more for the training than the race. I ran several 5Ks and 10Ks and a half marathon in 2015-17, but have gotten out of shape/practice. Maybe we could egg each other on! I haven’t searched the virtual events yet — do you have any good links in the meantime? I’m not sure how it will go when winter weather hits, but a goal might motivate me. (Training for the half was grueling, but I did it. Time to get off my lazy COVID butt!)
11/7 - 183.4 - 1523
Whaaaaa? Ok, I have to assume water retention because my average calories are down. Weird. Anyway, I had a nice walk yesterday and am heading out again soon, aiming for more time & distance. Have a lovely Saturday!
11/8 - 183.4 - 1801
I walked a little farther yesterday than the day before, and am aiming for more today as I build back to my old 5-6 miles once or twice most days. I need to get some warmer clothes to keep this up as we settle into colder weather, but for now we t-shirt weather by afternoon. I did eat too much — DH, totally clueless about calories and skinny — made chicken pasta Alfredo for dinner, and I didn’t realize until after dinner how astonishingly high the calories are. Whew! If I’d known, I’d have gone lighter at lunch, but oh, well. Leftovers tonight, but salad for lunch should help, and half a normal serving for dinner. 😁 I think I’m retaining water from the sudden uptick in exercise plus no doubt higher sodium in all that cheese. Have a happy Sunday, all!
11/9 - 182.8 - 1838
I swear, I’m going to make a graph of calories and weight because sometimes they make no sense. OTOH, I’ll take the bounce back down and hope for more. I have a fun afternoon coming up — a friend has a 6-wk-old litter of Miniature American Shepherd puppies and I get to go do the first of two outsider evaluations of the puppies (I’m an Australian Shepherd dog show judge) and, you know, play with them! Nothing better than baby dogs! Off to walk first — I’m making Turkey Trotting a priority!
11/10 - 183 - 1782
I don’t know how I ever kept my calories below 1400. I can’t seem to get there. Sigh. I’m hoping as I increase my exercise, I’ll at least even things out and maybe shave off some calories. Anyway, the puppy visit was fun and I had a nice walk yesterday, heading out for a longer one soon.
11/11 - 183 - 1189
Ok, I kept my calories in check yesterday, which is encouraging. Weight is from previous high days. I had a good walk and plan to go again soon. Doubt I’ll make my weight goal for the round, but at least I’m walking regularly. Work in progress.
11/12 - Goal <182 - Actual 183 - 1673; 10-day averages 183 - 1776
Well, that’s a wash. I ate too much, still a lot of it emotional eating with the stress of our national condition, but at least I’m walking regularly, if not as far/long as I’d like. I will make my Turkey Trot walking goals for the month, though! Im also going to start a “digital declutter” in a couple of days, as soon as I decide on my goals for that. I’m reading Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism and have known for ages it’s past time to get off FB and delete some of my time-eating apps (Pinterest, I’m looking/not looking at you!). I think spending less time online will help me in many ways, including poor eating habits. I’ll still check in here once a day, though. 🙂 See you in R132!
Goal — 5K/3.1 mi - <55 min walking by 11/15; 10k/6.2 mi - <2 hrs by 11/30
11/7 - 3.2k/2mi - 39 min
11/8 - 1.6k/1mi - 17 min
11/9 - 2.4K/1.5mi - 29 min
11/11 - 4.8k/3mi - 55 min - almost there!
11/12 - 1.6k/1mi - 18 min - I didn’t dress warmly enough for the wind & had to turn back.

11/04 116.0 DD#2 and friend came over early yesterday to help go through more stuff in the garage, huge allergy issues from dust last night. AF last night because of all of the sinus meds. Better this morning.
11/06 115.5 Community socially distanced Arts and Crafts today - first time in person for me since February.
11/09 117.0 Expected, it’s fine.
11/10 116.0 Feeling like a real slacker because I have not made one step toward the Turkey Trot. Feeling down as we learned yesterday that older daughter (RN in a hospital) is positive for COVID. One of her coworkers came to work in spite of not feeling well and DD is #12 on her wing to have it. A young person who wants to use their leave for fun not when actually sick!
11/11 116.5 Expected, Great Greek yesterday and going to get Chinese take out today so tomorrow will probably be higher. Can’t believe tomorrow is the last day of another round! AF
11/12 118.5 Expected as I satisfied a craving for General Tso’s Chicken. At least 2 days of carbs in that serving on top of the whatever is in the gyro meat. Not worried.

Next overall goal is to get under 140. I would like to get that done before Thanksgiving and hold through Thanksgiving. For this round, I am going to focus on getting to 141.
Going to continue with daily tracking, staying under goal calories, and minimum of 20 min formal exercise/day (all from UAC challenge). I am also trying to do 90 minutes of planks, and 24 hours of formal exercise this November (24 hour and 60 minute plank challenges).
Previous goals: get under 150; get under 145 for my birthday; get to pre-COVID 142.4

Round 131 – starting weight 142.2
11/3 – 141.6 Nice start to the round. I am starting also to make note of my net calories to begin the process of learning what calories accomplish what. Yesterday was net of 1022. I have read a woman should not be regularly under 1200. I was hungry later in the evening yesterday, but rode it out. The previous day, leading into the challenge, my net was 1227 and no hunger issues.
11/4 – 141.0 Wow! Not expected. I guess my reward for not engaging in my normal stress eating patterns. The french’s onions, that I purchased way too soon, were calling me all evening. Did not open and am considering asking my husband to hid them from me until I am cooking for the 5 of us for Thanksgiving.
11/5 – 140.8 I really was expecting some take back. I’m sure its coming. But last night, I tried something new. I headed out after dark and walked/jogged for the equivalent of a 5K. Took just over 40 minutes, but I now know a route that would achieve this and I can measure improvement against it over time. Maybe someday I will enter a 5K.
11/6 – 140.8 Pleasantly surprised there was no take back.
11/7 – 140.4 (not my regular scale – weekend in Maine) no idea if the two scales weigh differently (same make/model, etc) and if I am actually down. At least glad to not see an up. Monday morning the 9th will give me a true indication. Have been consistently staying under my 1340 base and not eating back any exercise, and tracking everything.
11/8 – 140.0 (not my regular scale – weekend in Maine) Happy confused. I continue to lose more quickly than expected. Maybe this is my reward for halting my planned first 8 mile walk, only 2.5 miles in, to rescue the little guy below, who was hopping around the street in Maine looking for food. He is now safe and people are working on getting him back home, or to a new home.
11/9 – 140.0 Pleased to see that the two scales are close enough that I can’t tell the difference between their results. Overall, I am really shocked with how I am losing. My “dream” back in September was to get into the 130’s by December and I was concerned I was setting too high an expectable. At this point, it is looking rather attainable.
11/10 – 139.4 Totally confused. Grateful, but confused and wondering how and when I will get a take back. On another note, yesterday I had promised that I would get out and try that 5K route again. Well things kept happening and “after dark” became 9 PM. I still headed out, but hit the wrong button on my watch, so I had no milage feedback. I figured “what the heck, I know the route”. Nope, I did not. While out there I was doing significantly more jogging this time and was excited to see its impact. As I am reaching home, my time was almost identical, so I was disappointed. Well turns out that when I use the right buttons the apple watch maps my route. So I looked up my route from 11/5 and sure enough, last night I had done one of my walking routes that includes two cul-de-sacs, so my “same time” was for a route .3 miles longer. So I did improve, just harder to see. Today, lots of body aches so I will be going for less aggressive exercise for the day. I think I’m taking grandson out in his stoller.
11/11 – 139.6 ok, up is totally reasonable given it is the only up this entire round. Yesterday, was even later than the night before. Went 3.5 miles at a “slow” pace, which took an hour. Just good to get out and do something and stretch things out again from the previous night’s walk/jog. I’m thinking I need to figure out how to format my 5k info.
11/12 – 139.4 What a nice surprise for this round. Need to figure out next goal. Went for distance yesterday, I was channeling
and her interest in a 10K. Looked up milage in a 10k and its 6.214 miles. Walk ended up 6.37 miles and was a bit over 90 minutes. Was my longest walk I have tried. Between it and my Monday night walk/jog, my legs are “angry” around my knees (mainly insides) so I need to be smart and not get injured. That would mess everything up!

Day, Weight, Comment
Hello, TOM (officially). You've really done a number on me this go 'round. I was so so so tired this morning when my alarm went off. Was planning a walk but still so groggy I couldn't manage. Now, I'm playing the waiting game at work. I can't leave my computer unattended too long should my project come through. I need to get started on it immediately. Hoping, instead, during my lunch break I can watch something on youtube to get a step workout in my living room. Its too late in the morning to go for a walk, now. Too many people out and about - my pup will be uncooperative if history holds true. If I go for a walk without her, she'll be even more of a nightmare and, I'm sure, enact her revenge. She always does. Hopefully the workout will help with the cramps I'm dealing with. So glad they're a rare occurrence. Dinner tonight is salmon pesto with salad and bread. Lunch is either leftover chicken bacon fried rice or my dinner last night (the cajun inspired sausage and rice with bell peppers). I'll probably eat the fried rice today, already 2 days old, and have the sausage and rice tomorrow as it is fresher. I'll see about adding some of my steamables for a veggie boost to lunch. I have 1 more hour, as of typing this, to hit my 16hr goal. Aiming for 17hrs as it puts me right at the end of my lunch period and I can get my workout in before it (I'm envious of those who can eat and work out not long after, I get nauseous)
Previous Day's Comments
Dinner wasn't great. I felt so bloated and heavy and just ick in general within minutes of eating. I didn't have a lot, but it felt like I gorged myself out of nowhere. 1 cup of stew is it. Not sure what that was about. Water was short, but not by too awful much. Better than it has been. Chilly out this morning so definitely thinking yoga if I manage a workout. 16hrs fastest yesterday. Might try for 17 today, depends on how my poor tummy feels.
I don't feel overly bloated AND I dropped? My body is really all over the place lately. I'll take it, though, since that makes more sense to me. I didn't get to fast much as BF made breakfast (he was really excited and wanted me to try this new combination he thought of - it was AMAZING). Today I definitely want to fast a bit longer. Dinner ended earlier than it has been the last several days, back to where it was previously, so that helps with longer fasts in the morning. I was shy about 6oz of hitting water goal, but much much better than before. I'm already ahead of the curve this morning with water so today should go well. I have a salad and some fresh fruit for lunch so I'm set to break my fast with the good stuff. Not sure what dinner is yet. Hopefully it has a side of vegetables, though. Been trying to focus on healthier options. I bought some Meal Simple options from HEB. Had General Tso's with veggies on Monday (craving Chinese food while shopping) and yesterday I had teriyaki salmon with stir fry veggies. Last week I had a baked potato from it. It is a little more expensive, but I figured I'd try it. I was craving a baked potato and my fast was over while I was still shopping - boom, I happened to see a baked potato in that section!. Worked out really well and it was quite yummy. Plus, it inspired me to start thinking of lunches I can make for myself at home/prep for when I begin commuting (if that ever happens). Some require an oven (like my salmon - its uncooked), and some are cooked and ready to reheat in the microwave. Its definitely way better than a frozen meal when in a pinch! I think I really needed those to kickstart me back into focusing on healthier options during my eating window.
Not really bloated, but have a bit of heaviness in my low belly. Nothing terrible, just noticeable. I managed my water goal yesterday of 64oz. 16hr 20min fasting. Dinner did not have veggies, but I feel my salad helped balance that, as well as the fruit I snacked on a bit for that sweet flavor. Not ideal, but better. Think I need to focus on getting veggies in during lunch. I typically don't know what dinner will be until its being made so to ensure I get some in, my lunch needs to include veg. If there's veg at dinner as well, that's even better! I have some steamables veggies for lunch but nothing else. May pair with a small sandwich. Then I'll focus on brainstorming ideas for when I go shopping next. I really loved steamables before, but it seems HEB hasn't had the selection I'm used to. Walmart may have to bridge that gap which will take more planning. My health is worth it!
Likely from my fish and chips (its a guilty pleasure I've been wanting to try at this new place for awhile. Worth it!). Water was over 75oz but didn't measure how much over. Finally! Getting ready to head towards east Texas to go help FamHub's mom pack her house (closes Dec 1) and move her here (she's already living with him until the new apartments are finished building and she can move in them). Won't be weighing in tomorrow, but should be back Sunday. BF will leave Monday morning to go see his mom (4th time with breast cancer - going in for treatment and not looking good) and won't be back until next Sunday so I'll have more freedom to deep clean the house and get exercise in the living room (more space) without disturbing him at work. Also thinking of experimenting with longer fasts (maybe an alternate day to see how that feels? Guess I'll see how OMAD goes, first). Lots of sitting (5hrs approx) today and tomorrow but also lots of packing and moving so it should offset. BF still can't lift anything terribly heavy so FamHub and I will be the heavy lifters. His mom will likely focus on packing and also has bad shoulder so her and BF will take smaller stuff. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Expected with traveling/moving. Of course, when moving, things are packed and you have to eat out in some form or fashion - pizza Friday night for dinner, packing some stuff. Woke up to boudin kolaches before resuming loading. Had cold pizza for lunch then another long drive home (5.5hrs there, about 6hrs back with uhaul truck) before dinner out (cooking was out of the question, especially with kids involved - they needed to eat before bedtime). Unfortunately Gigi gravely underestimated how much stuff and the uhaul truck was not enough by any means and nothing available to load the rest so in 2 weekends time, we'll be doing it again. We would next weekend but BF is in Oklahoma visiting his parents so I think he managed to convince FamHub to wait another weekend. Minus the 2 refridgerators, washer, and dryer, this is the easy (but awkwardly shaped) light stuff. Today, because we got home so late yesterday, we have to unload into the storage unit. My poor arms are so tired. This is definitely a workout and I can tell I haven't lifted weights in awhile haha Doesn't help I'm a bit dehydrated. I tried drinking water, but its hard when traveling because I'll have to pee every 5 minutes. Definitely taking my water jug with me to unload.
Back down a bit. Still low on water, but definitely have a chance to push more today. Luckily we had extra hands to help unload the truck into the storage unit. We had more of a Linner at 330 and then snacked a little around dinner. I hate salt and I was craving it so I had chips and salsa. Ended fast early so hopefully today my longer fast will go well (and easy!) Hoping minimum 18hrs. BF leaves this morning for a week in Oklahoma so that will only make it easier (no surprise breakfasts from him nor the smell/sound of him making his own breakfast to derail me). May try for some yoga once he's up and out of the house to help with these sore muscles. If work goes well, may also try for a walk with the pup. She's going to be so depressed her dad is leaving (gone 2 days/1night, back for 2 nights (gone during the day unloading), then gone again for a week) so maybe a walk will cheer her up a bit. May have a look to see what virtual 5ks are out there first and knock that out this week. Also have to reorganize bedroom a bit to get our new bed frame in there once he's back. Gives me a chance to vacuum the entire room instead of just where I can reach haha (oh the joys of having a dog who loves to shed). I think I have way more than enough to keep me busy while he's gone.
11/10-Was up drinking water all morning - couldn't sleep. Its really odd to sleep in this house with nobody else here. It feels too empty and quiet, even with my normal sleep sounds/white noise app (we have the same). I decided not to weigh due to that. Hopefully tonight will be better. My phone was at 1% despite being plugged in all night. Still struggling to get it to charge. Its a brand new charging cable (only a month old) so makes me think its my phone. I can't really afford a new one, but I might need to look into it. Going to do some google research first to see if there's something else. I know the outlets in this house are finicky but I've had success with this one since I moved in so not sure what's going on. Think I've found one here in the living room that's working as long as I keep an eye on it to get me through the day. The one time I care about having a working phone is when I'm home alone and it'd be the one time I struggle with it! Go figure, thanks Murphy and your dumb law hahaha
I'm feeling horribly bloated. Woke up with a headache and uneasy stomach that rivaled a nasty hangover. Hungover with no alcohol, huh. Now that the day's gone on a little more, I've rid of most of the bloat, but I still feel heavy like I've gained. Headache is there, but when distracted I don't notice it. Ah well. Also didn't fast yesterday. I was feeling nauseous and the only thing that seemed to help was bread. From that point, it was challenging to not eat everything in sight constantly. But then again, I had TOM pay a visit, so I'm assuming it was an oddball hormone fluctuation - I get those oddball ones every now and again, not often. Today's lunch (break-fast) will be leftover chicken-bacon fried rice with egg drop soup. Dinner I'm making a sausage/kielbasa-rice dish (has a bit of a cajun influence) with side salad and fresh dinner rolls. I'm already halfway to my minimum water goal so hoping I can hit my 75oz goal without too much trouble. I'm slightly peckish right now, but nothing compared to yesterday so I feel I can stick to my goals a bit longer. 16hr fast is up here in about 10 minutes, but thinking I may try to push through. Will see how this water settles the stomach and if I'm still feeling a tad hungry.
- No walk today but aiming for a nice walk-like living room youtube workout. I still need to sign up, but I don't get paid until Friday next week so I have to wait. Worst case, I'll do a 5k without an official race bib/medal in solidarity with you lovelies! It won't do me any harm to miss out on the official, but all the benefit to do the workout itself (:

Ultimate Goal Weight: 118
Challenge Starting Weight 125
Challenge Goal Weight- anywhere in the 124 range
11/09- 125.00-Finally got brave enough to step on scale- relieved damage wasn't as much as I thought. Bummed though pulled muscle in calf yesterday playing pickleball so my easy way to burn calories is off the table for the next few days. We are having a beautiful fall day do hope to go for a power walk after doing my new stretch routine.
11/10- 124- Well took a muscle relaxer last night for my calf- Calf felt great but was loopy all day. Trying to figure out the negative calorie adjustments with my apple watch - ate the calories adjusted yesterday and was down a pound- must be water weight? Probably last awesome day of year- but 75 in November is incredible-
11/11-123.4- I am wondering if I should turn off negative calorie adjustments? I am trying it one more day, its great to drop weight quickly but usually it pops back on quickly too, I want sustained weight loss. Did body pump today and 1 1/2 hours of pickleball, with several challenging games. Errands all afternoon, think I will let the leaves sit on the lawn one more day.
11/12- 122.8 -Ate the recommended calories, Spin class and then Essentrics- someone else recommended and love it too and body definitely hates when I do not stretch now. Playing pickleball this afternoon outside, will be cold but its sunny, we are closing in on the days left for outside play. Looking forward to next round and starting at beginning.

I lost 16lbs with you all April-October 2020 and I want to keep it off!
Maintenance goal: 135-140 lbs
This round, I need to practice maintaining by: ✅eating really whole, fresh foods and
✅getting some activity every day.
My challenges are:
◾the time change (work hours shift to an hour earlier for the winter) and
◾managing cravings and goals throughout TOM
I think it would also feel less strict if I lost another pound or two and hovered closer to the middle of my range instead of popping over it so many days. Last round was over range 8 days, within range 2 days.
11/03 140.6 had a weird dinner. Need to be more intentional and plan what I want to eat earlier in the day when I'm not hungry and tired.
11/12 138.6 More days within range this round. Unfortunately that's due to sadness and not eating right. My brother in law passed away in a car accident and I just got back from funeral. I read posts but nothing is sinking in. I think I'll take a round off and see how it goes. I just need a break from trying so hard. That's how I feel today anyway. 💔

Hi, I’d like to join round 131 please.
I am seeking to maintain (or drop a small amount) and find that I need the discipline of daily weighing to stay on track. I use Happy Scale to record my weight and will post actual weight in kg and the trend direction.
Round 130 (1st for me) SW 57.2. EW 56.5. Loss = 0.7 kg
Round 132 SW 56.5kg. GW 56 kg
Tue 3 56.6 Trend ↔️ Not the best start but yesterday’s lunch was good!
Wed 4 56.7 Trend ↔️ Going in the wrong direction 👿
Thu 5 56.6 Trend ↔️ Scale was undecided between 56.6 and 56.7. I think I worked hard enough for 56.6 or lower!
Fri 6 56.1 Trend ⬇️ It looks as if the scale woke up but I’m not sure I trust it!
Sat 7 56.5 trend ↔️ Ohh well, I’m not really surprised
Sun 8 56.3 trend ⬇️ That’s better
Mon 9 56.1 trend ⬇️ 😊
Tue 10 56.1 trend ⬇️ I should be able to meet my target for this round
Wed 11 56.1 trend ↔️ 56.1 again!
Thu 12 56.1 yet again and I missed my target 👿. Trend ⬇️
Round 131 SW 56.6 EW 56.1. Loss 0.5 kg

Round 126 (1): 156 to 153.2 (-2.8 lbs)
Round 127 (2): 153.2 to 150.4 (-2.8 lbs)

Round 129 (4): 148.0 to 146.0 (-2.0 lbs)
Round 130 (5): 146.0 to 144.4 (-1.6 lbs)
Goals for this round:
- Lose 2 lbs
- Meal prep breakfast for at least 6 days
- Add Just Dance 2020 to morning workout 4-5x a week to increase cardio on top of Ring Fit strength exercises
11/03 - 143.8 - Ok, I think I’m back to my normal trend after Halloween. I’m really, really anxious about the election today here in the US though, and it will be a struggle all day not to eat those feelings.
11/04 - 141.6 - Well, that was another “wait, what the...?” moment on the scale this morning. I’d be ecstatic if some of this loss stays around, but I think a chunk of it is due to not being able to eat much of anything yesterday afternoon/evening. Still, by breaking 143 I have now officially lost 20 lbs!
11/05 - 142.4 - Completely expected that bump back up; I was going to be happy with anything under 143. I ordered my “reward” workout outfit (for getting to 145) a week or so ago and it should be arriving in the next day or two. I can’t wait for it to get here - I just hope it fits!
11/06 - 141.6 - And back down again! Wow, I might make it to 140 before Thanksgiving (which would be awesome). Noticing more definition in my arms and legs, which is really encouraging.
11/07 - 141.8 - Beautiful sunny fall day - cool and crisp. Hope to go for a nice walk later today. I’d been trying for the past few days to watch the moment the election was called... and I missed it by minutes since I was exercising this morning. 😂. Oh well! Made it to the last world on Ring Fit - hopefully can beat the final boss before the end of this round.
11/08 - DNW - I went out and got doughnuts for the family this morning, so I skipped my workout and usual weigh-in time. I limited myself to half a doughnut and a few doughnut holes, and will get back to regular tracking for lunch and dinner.
11/09 - 141.6 - Just holding here for a little longer, I guess.
11/10 - 140.8 - Yay, yay, yay!!! 140, here I come! I actually expected a bump up this morning since we did take-out BBQ for dinner last night (and it was delicious!). I guess it’s a good thing the kids ate all the mac & cheese before I could have more than a few bites. 😂
11/11 - 140.0 - That was fast! Can’t believe I hit 140 already! I am now officially back to a “normal” BMI. I know BMI is far from an accurate measurement, and I have another 15 lbs to go to hit my ideal weight, but I’m so happy to hit this milestone. My “reward” outfit finally arrived yesterday - and it fits!
Today’s goal for 5K - going to take the dog out tonight and figure out a 5K route I can do; then I can “train” on our nightly walks.
11/12 - 139.6 - Super happy with how this round went. Clearly a big part of it was being high at the end of the last round, but I certainly didn’t expect to get under my overall goal weight. I think I’m going to do one more round working hard to lose weight, then switch to a lower rate or maintenance for Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s.
Today’s goal for 5K - Found a route that’s 1.57 miles, so it should work great if I do it twice. Will start turning my evening walk into a walk/run and do the loop twice.
Total Round Loss: -4.8 lbs

ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
TMI helped. Just sayin’…… Good luck everyone on this round!
I can’t believe I forgot to weigh in today before the half pot of coffee I have already drank! Will have to wait until tomorrow. Yesterday was an excellent day for meals and movement. The snacks were a bit much but, otherwise, all well-chosen meals. I hope to get in a lot more movement today. I had to cancel my far-away oncology and mammogram appointments due to insurance issues. Rescheduled for spring to avoid bad weather driving, 4 hours each way.
I figured that it would be pretty good on the scale today. The last couple of days have been filled with lots of work & some lower calorie choices. Not perfect but I knew it would reflect well on the scale.
More movement for sure and it’s helping. So much going on around here. I will explain when I have more time, but in the meantime, I am really trying to watch it and move as best I can!
I am just happy to be the same today. I had a severe glucose drop last night. I managed to stay away from the panic and the feeding frenzy that usually accompany diabetic sugar drops, but I still stuffed things into my pie hole that I would not normally pick due to sheer need and fear. Thankfully the scale was okay today. I know what happened. I took my normal lunch and cut it in half to eat for dinner. Problem: my lunch was very very small to begin with so it was just not enough carbs or calories. I will be more careful today. Low cal volume with some reasonable carbs are on the menu!
Stayed with small meals yesterday and some extra movement so I am a little stumped. However, no TMI and my meals may have been a bit too salty (??). We will see what tomorrow brings.
McDonald’s which tasted like a salt shaker. I am just not used to it. It is the only fast food in my immediate town. I got tired of it years ago but yesterday was just too busy. Holding water I hope because I know I did not overeat.
All my fault.
The madness must stop.
Down 1.2 lbs which makes goal but I think I could have done better. See you all in the next round.
