    I'm Dawn. I live in SE British Columbia, Canada.

    Female, Age 60, 5'2"

    MFP Start Weight Oct 28.18: 191.0
    Ultimate Goal Weight: Not sure

    This is my 5th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    Day 1: 12/26: 137.7 - Extremely active day, but also ate quite a bit. 451 calories left over in the Green
    Day 2: 12/27: 137.1 - I have enough leftovers for a few days, stuffing and gravy is my weakness so I will load my plate with veggies and turkey and stretch out the badder stuff : - ) 561 in the Green
    Day 3: 12/28: 137.7 - I was awake throughout the night and weighed less just now, but am using my very early morning weight. 717 in the Green
    Day 4: 12/29: 137.2 - Back on track at least until NYE. 302 in the Green
    Day 5: 12/30: 137.5 - Hiccup yesterday, some sad news and went off a bit. 791 in the Green
    Day 6: 12/31: 138.3 - That is the highest that I have weighed in awhile. Not going to overdo it tonight, but I will have some Champagne and something delicious to eat. 384 in the Green
    Day 7: 01/01: 138.4 - I had Ribs, it might catch up more. I have had lots of activity, but also ate more than usual. 111 in the Green
    Day 8: 01/02: 137.2 - Now to get rid of the holiday eating. 624 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight:
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 137.2 - i see that I didn't set a goal weight for this week!
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3490 - So close to a pound worth
    Day 9: Sun, 1/3: 136.1 - A bunch of water loss yesterday. I remained very active throughout the holidays even though I upped my consumption. Very happy to see this number, it motivates me. 417 in the Green
    Day 10: Mon, 1/4: 135.9 - Going to do my measurements today. an astounding 1278 in the Green
    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 135.4 - Many workouts yesterday, and back to healthier eating. A scale drop always motivates me to be "good". We all fight so hard for each pound, too easy to backslide and undo the hard work. 1354 in the Green
    Day 12: Wed, 1/6: 135.5 - Very long work day and a very late dinner. Burned lots of calories and didn't eat them back, hoping that shows up in a day or two. 1190 in the Green
    Day 13: Thurs, 1/7: 134.8 - New low : - ) All of this calorie burning is showing up on the scale. Work alone was 20,000 steps yesterday on top of my daily workout. 506 in the Green
    Day 14: Fri, 1/8: 134.1 - Lowest so far in many many years. Hoping to keep this going. 620 in the Green
    Day 15: Sat, 1/9: 135.1 - Kind of bad choices yesterday, but I touched that 134.1 once so I know that I can get back there. 721 in the Green
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 135.1
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 135.1
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 6086, should have lost more than a pound, and did.

    Week 4:

    Day 16: 1/10: 137.4 - Wow, almost back up to Day 1 weight for some reason. Hoping that this is just a fluctuation. I have been on track except for Friday (which obviously caught up to me just now), but even then I was under calorie goals due to activity. 831 in the Green
    Day 17: 1/11: 137.4 - Got in lots of activity yesterday because I was planning on a huge steak and prawns for dinner. This will fuel my body for days to come, but I want to get this number back down. 663 in the Green
    Day 18: 1/12: 136.1 - Better, still 1 pound up from last week. 668 in the Green
    Day 19: 1/13: 136.5 - I'm okay with this, but hope to get closer to last week's EW. 558 in the Green
    Day 20: 1/14: 135.8 - Sticking with the plan. Hoping to be able to leave work and get up to another town's arena for a 1 hour public skate today. 827 in the Green
    Day 21: 1/15: 136.7 - Loads of activity yesterday, but .. Nachos. 410 in the Green
    Day 22: 1/16: 136.5 - So it looks like I lost 1 pound in a month. 452 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 134.4
    4th Week Actual Weight: 136.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3778 - just enough to lose a pound

    Day 23: Sun, 1/17: 137.3 - Ouch, apparently still paying for Friday's nachos. 999 in the Green
    Day 24: Mon, 1/18: - 135.8 - Much better. Now to get back to week 2's weights. 705 in the Green
    Day 25: Tues, 1/19: - 135.6 - Got in a few extra Fitness Marshall songs here and there 2 or 3 at a time throughout the day yesterday which added up to a nice calorie burn (and mood lifter) overall. 539 in the Green
    Day 26: Wed, 1/20: - 135.5 - I have moved all of my jobs from today to tomorrow. I am going to get out for a nice long walk/hike. Yesterday was incredibly windy with dust blowing everywhere when I tried to leave work for a small walk/break so I didn't spend any time outdoors. I had my 2 year physical early in the morning. Doc was pleased with my weight loss, but still needs me to lose more to bring my blood pressure further down and get me to a healthy body weight for my height. Working on it. Very slow. 526 in the Green
    Day 27: Thurs, 1/21: 135.4 - Always happy to see a drop even if tiny. 368 in the Green
    Day 28: Fri, 1/22: 136.9 : - ( 472 in the Green
    Day 29: Sat, 1/23: 136.4 - 203 in the Green

    5th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    5th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - disappointed with this, but know that it is up to me.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 3812 - enough to lose 1 pound
    Day 30: Sun, 1/24: 138.1 - Argh. Wings last night must have been the culprit. I wasn't over my calories though. 1060 in the Green
    Day 31: Mon, 1/25: 138.3 - Sodium? Lots of activity yesterday, I feel like the weight will drop back down over the next few days. 762 in the Green
    Day 32: Tues, 1/26: 135.3 - Maybe just being so banged up was causing my body to hold on to weight? Very happy to see this. 703 in the Green
    Day 33: Wed, 1/27: 135.2 - Very busy work week, prepping my meals ahead of time so that I don't grab something "bad". 799 in the Green
    Day 34: Thurs, 1/28: - 135.2 - Worked a super long day yesterday, I didn't get home until after midnight, but had to eat because I hadn't had anything since the morning. I thought that my weight would reflect the late eating and tiny amount of sleep. Glad that it didn't. 653 in the Green
    Day 35: Fri, 1/29: - 135.5 - Looming end of week weigh in always motivates me to be "good" : - ) 844 in the Green
    Day 36: Sat, 1/30: 134.8 - Going to try not to blow it today. 440 in the Green
    6th Week Goal Weight: 134.5
    6th Week Actual Weight: 134.8 - Close
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 5261- enough to lose a pound

    Day 37: Sun, 1/31: 136.9 - Ouch and TMI - 907 in the Green
    Day 38: Mon, 2/1: 137.5 - Another TMI uptick, expecting a woosh over the next few days. 562 in the Green
    Day 39: Tues, 2/2: 137.1 - Can't say that I am not disappointed to be so close to my start weight 39 days ago. Mind you I haven't been out on my trail walks in well over a week so that is probably making a difference (melting here, so water on top of ice, not going) 729 in the Green
    Day 40: Wed, 2/3: 135.9 - I touched the 134.1 in the last 100, but I was outside lots. Missing the trails indeed. 577 in the Green
    Day 41: Thurs, 2/4: 136.3 - MFP has been suggesting the 120s for 4 months now (if every day was like today) but it still feels far off. 966 in the Green
    Day 42: Fri, 2/5: 134.8 - So much better. I got out of the Obese Zone in September, working towards getting out of the Overweight Zone some day.
    Day 43: Sat: 2/6: 135.8 - Oh well, I will keep working at it. 678 in the Green

    7th Week Goal Weight: 134.9
    7th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 4949 - More than enough to lose a pound.


    Day 44: Sun, 2/7: 136.1 - Like a yo-yo. 193 in the Green
    Day 45: Mon, 2/8: 137.5 - Superbowl no-nos yesterday. 915 in the Green
    Day 46: Tues, 2/9: 137.2 - Working hard to get it back down. 862 in the Green
    Day 47: Wed, 2/10: 134.4 - Whew. Too hard fought to blow it. 489 in the Green
    Day 48: Thurs, 2/11: 134.2 - 383 in the Green
    Day 49: Fri, 2/12: 134.3 - I got to skate yesterday. I burned a lot of calories between that, workouts, and pedometer (1198) but ate more too. Going to eat light today. 661 in the Green
    Day 50: Sat, 2/13: 135.5 - Argh, no reason for a gain today after 3 days in the "4s". 817 in the Green

    8th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I just keep plugging in these goal numbers, I hit this number in week 2. Either wishful thinking or something to work towards.
    8th Week Actual Weight: 135.5 - I actually was on a good track to make my goal.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 4320 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 51: Sun, 2/14: 135.6 - Hoping that the weather goes back to "normal" soon, outdoor activity tends to lose me more weight than indoor for some reason. Perhaps it is a chemical that only gets produced outside? 1144 calories in the Red.
    Day 52: Mon, 2/15: 136.3 - This will go up more, I had Ribs yesterday, so this choice will lead to the expected results. Glad that I stop myself from having them once per week like I used to. MFP says that I would be 144 pounds in 5 weeks if every day were like that. I have to keep with the calorie intake/burn in which MFP says that I will be 123 in 5 weeks if I eat like that every day. I had an entire day of calories extra yesterday, that will take a while to undo. I will work out extra today and eat frequently and light to try to mitigate it.
    Day 53: Tues, 2/16:
    Day 54: Wed, 2/17:
    Day 55: Thurs, 2/18:
    Day 56: Fri, 2/19:
    Day 57: Sat, 2/20:

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I guess that I will just keep plugging this number in until I hit it. Hit it in week 2, so maybe this week if I can stay "good".
    9th Week Actual Weight:

    We all eventually know what works for us as individuals in order to lose weight.

    For myself, I have to have a deficit of at least 500 calories per day in order to lose any weight at all. This doesn't include breathing and stuff, just what shows in the Green on the MFP tracker at the end of the day.
    I eat anywhere between 1100 and 1700 calories per typical day.
    I had to change my eating/lifestyle habits. Certain things that I have noticed on the tracker that always gain me weight I have been learning to either limit how often I have them, or cut the portions.
    In order to rev up my sluggish metabolism I have tried a few methods. Short workouts several times a day on busy days adds up for me and keeps the furnace burning. On days off I workout for longer durations. On weekends I try to eat small things more frequently to get the furnace burning.

    My typical dinner is quite simple but easy for me:
    Chicken breast - I have them individually frozen and wrapped in cellophane. In the mornings I put a spice rub on one and put it into the fridge to thaw. I use: Jamaican Jerk, Taco, Blackened, Creole, etc. I buy my spices from a local lady who doesn't use any salt. At dinner time I use my George Foreman Grill. I always have 4 vegetables, Brocolli and Brussels Sprouts, Yam, and something else. Very filling, especially the Brussel Sprouts which I dip into 2 tbsp of half fat Hellman's.

    I have been trying to get more fibre and grains into my diet, but this is a work in progress.

    There is a good old saying: A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.

    Willpower is easier said than done for sure, but to succeed we kind of have to use it.

    I do know what works for me and what doesn't by now.

    What about y'all? What works/doesn't work?

    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 3812 - enough to lose 1 pound
    Day 30: Sun, 1/24: 138.1 - Argh. Wings last night must have been the culprit. I wasn't over my calories though. 1060 in the Green
    Day 31: Mon, 1/25: 138.3 - Sodium? Lots of activity yesterday, I feel like the weight will drop back down over the next few days. 762 in the Green
    Day 32: Tues, 1/26: 135.3 - Maybe just being so banged up was causing my body to hold on to weight? Very happy to see this. 703 in the Green
    Day 33: Wed, 1/27: 135.2 - Very busy work week, prepping my meals ahead of time so that I don't grab something "bad". 799 in the Green
    Day 34: Thurs, 1/28: - 135.2 - Worked a super long day yesterday, I didn't get home until after midnight, but had to eat because I hadn't had anything since the morning. I thought that my weight would reflect the late eating and tiny amount of sleep. Glad that it didn't. 653 in the Green
    Day 35: Fri, 1/29: - 135.5 - Looming end of week weigh in always motivates me to be "good" : - ) 844 in the Green
    Day 36: Sat, 1/30: 134.8 - Going to try not to blow it today. 440 in the Green
    6th Week Goal Weight: 134.5
    6th Week Actual Weight: 134.8 - Close
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 5261- enough to lose a pound

    Day 37: Sun, 1/31: 136.9 - Ouch and TMI - 907 in the Green
    Day 38: Mon, 2/1: 137.5 - Another TMI uptick, expecting a woosh over the next few days. 562 in the Green
    Day 39: Tues, 2/2: 137.1 - Can't say that I am not disappointed to be so close to my start weight 39 days ago. Mind you I haven't been out on my trail walks in well over a week so that is probably making a difference (melting here, so water on top of ice, not going) 729 in the Green
    Day 40: Wed, 2/3: 135.9 - I touched the 134.1 in the last 100, but I was outside lots. Missing the trails indeed. 577 in the Green
    Day 41: Thurs, 2/4: 136.3 - MFP has been suggesting the 120s for 4 months now (if every day was like today) but it still feels far off. 966 in the Green
    Day 42: Fri, 2/5: 134.8 - So much better. I got out of the Obese Zone in September, working towards getting out of the Overweight Zone some day.
    Day 43: Sat: 2/6: 135.8 - Oh well, I will keep working at it. 678 in the Green

    7th Week Goal Weight: 134.9
    7th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 4949 - More than enough to lose a pound.


    Day 44: Sun, 2/7: 136.1 - Like a yo-yo. 193 in the Green
    Day 45: Mon, 2/8: 137.5 - Superbowl no-nos yesterday. 915 in the Green
    Day 46: Tues, 2/9: 137.2 - Working hard to get it back down. 862 in the Green
    Day 47: Wed, 2/10: 134.4 - Whew. Too hard fought to blow it. 489 in the Green
    Day 48: Thurs, 2/11: 134.2 - 383 in the Green
    Day 49: Fri, 2/12: 134.3 - I got to skate yesterday. I burned a lot of calories between that, workouts, and pedometer (1198) but ate more too. Going to eat light today. 661 in the Green
    Day 50: Sat, 2/13: 135.5 - Argh, no reason for a gain today after 3 days in the "4s". 817 in the Green

    8th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I just keep plugging in these goal numbers, I hit this number in week 2. Either wishful thinking or something to work towards.
    8th Week Actual Weight: 135.5 - I actually was on a good track to make my goal.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 4320 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 51: Sun, 2/14: 135.6 - Hoping that the weather goes back to "normal" soon, outdoor activity tends to lose me more weight than indoor for some reason. Perhaps it is a chemical that only gets produced outside? 1144 calories in the Red.
    Day 52: Mon, 2/15: 136.3 - This will go up more, I had Ribs yesterday, so this choice will lead to the expected results. Glad that I stop myself from having them once per week like I used to. MFP says that I would be 144 pounds in 5 weeks if every day were like that. I have to keep with the calorie intake/burn in which MFP says that I will be 123 in 5 weeks if I eat like that every day. I had an entire day of calories extra yesterday, that will take a while to undo. I will work out extra today and eat frequently and light to try to mitigate it. 841 in the Green
    Day 53: Tues, 2/16: 135.3 - That is the quickest that I have bounced back from Ribs. It was a holiday yesterday though, so I had time for lots of workouts. Or maybe my body went into fat burning overdrive from the excessive calories the day before.
    Day 54: Wed, 2/17:
    Day 55: Thurs, 2/18:
    Day 56: Fri, 2/19:
    Day 57: Sat, 2/20:

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I guess that I will just keep plugging this number in until I hit it again. Hit it in week 2, so maybe this week if I can stay "good".

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ December 26, 2020 thru April 4, 2021
    My Name is Donna, Age 60. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    145320379.png


    Day 01 – 12/26 …..205.4…..My family Christmas dinner is on Sunday (tomorrow). I expect to see an increase. Good luck everyone this round.
    Day 02 – 12/27 …..203.2…..A nice big Whoosh. I cut back yesterday in anticipation for my very large Christmas Dinner and party today. I expect the scale will be up tomorrow, but I will be a good girl in the days following.
    Day 03 – 12/28 …..205.2…..Dinner was salty and fatty but delicious. I’ve got my work cut out for me.
    Day 04[/ b] – 12/29 …..206.0….. It had to be the over-abundance of wine. Perhaps dinner catching up a little with me too from 2 days ago?
    Day 05 - 12/30 …..206.0….. Poured out the wine and chose Chinese instead. Gave away the last of the goodies too. I will have the other half of the Chinese today.
    Day 06 – 12/31 …..207.0….. Expecting alcohol tonight but I will keep the food in check! Had the last of the Chinese food yesterday.

    Weight Loss in December……………….. 1.6 lb GAIN.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 LB GAIN


    Day 07 – 01/01 …..207.8….. Ouch! Chinese catching up? My late December Christmas dinner showing up? Perhaps. But then there were the buckeye balls brought over yesterday. The rest will go to my grandchildren that are visiting today.
    Day 08 – 01/02 …..208.1….. Travel today and tomorrow.
    Day 09 – 01/03 …..207.1….. Not sure I understand the fluctuations. It should have been yesterdays higher number or even higher after travel and restaurant food. Likely water retention released? More travel today.
    Day 10 – 01/04 …..207.4.….. Travel day cancelled yesterday. That allowed me to reach my 10,000 steps. However, my dinner wasn’t until 3:30 a.m. so that did not help the 9:00 a.m. weigh-in.
    Day 11 – 01/05 …..207.0….. I will have lots of company today as I’ve called in the troops to help me un-decorate and store my Christmas décor. I’m not sure how my meals will go – probably a very late dinner again, but I will get in lots of movement I hope.
    Day 12 – 01/06 …..207.2…..A normal fluctuation. Worked on taking down my Christmas stuff today with the help of one of my handymen. A long day.
    Day 13 – 01/07 …..207.2….. Drank milk. It always bloats me. Meals were good.
    Day 14 – 01/08 …..207.0….. Better portion control. @dawnbgethealthy WAY TO GO GIRL!!!! YOU ARE SLAYING IT!!!!
    Day 15 – 01/09 …..208.6….. Well-planned meals but milk seems to bloat me and kill my progress. I’m going back to a small amount of Fairlife. No more real milk, even when it’s lowfat!!!!
    Day 16 – 01/10 …..208.6….. Kept calories good again yesterday and avoided milk. Meals very late as a friend stopped by without notice until 11:00 p.m. That may explain it along with no TMI x 2 days now. My big worry coming up is the remodel we will likely be starting later this week in one of the bathrooms. It is friends and family helping and my meals will be interrupted greatly forcing late meals on the regular. It will be too many to feed and I just can’t eat in front of anyone. There will be many projects this year. I’ve got to figure it all out.
    Day 17 - 01/11 …..207.0….. Whoosh. Bathroom duty was better. A wretched night last night filled with personal family turmoil. Bad sleep. Traveled today while so unrested, so we will see what tomorrow holds.
    Day 18 – 01/12 …..207.0….. I am very happy to see no gain after travel. I chalk it up to falling asleep early causing all my meals to be earlier. However, sometimes it shows up a couple of days later so I will be watching and tracking the patterns.
    Day 19 – 01/13 …..207.2….. A tiny fluctuation. I managed to increase my steps yesterday but I had to work for it. I added a two mile indoor walk to get me over the hump.
    Day 20 – 01/14 …..207.0….. Movie night last night. A very good low cal/low carb planned dinner but the snacks were off-target. I’ll eat better today but not much movement. Feeling tired…..
    Day 21 – 01/15 …..xxxxx….. No chance to weigh today. A friend woke me up banging on door. Yesterday was good but last night I had too many bad snacks.
    Day 22 – 01/16 …..207.0….. A complete rest day yesterday. In bed at 6:45 pm to watch TV until 3:00 am. Slept in this morning to get more sleep than I’ve gotten in months. Over 6 hours which is AMAZING for me. I usually just don’t seem to need more than about 4.5 hours. Maybe retirement will change my sleeping patterns for the better! Going for a 6 for tomorrow’s numbers!
    Day 23 – 01/17 …..206.8…..Finally a 6! Barely, but finally!
    Day 24 – 01/18 …..206.2….. 3 meals instead of 2 yesterday but no snacks. Finally TMI (bathroom duty). It helped. Now I am going to push for a 5.
    Day 25 – 01/19 …..205.6…..Yay! The meals still aren’t perfect but I am focusing on at least a 12/12 IF and a “very diet” dinner in a small quantity. I am still eating very late, but better. Focusing on sleep. Phone woke me up at 5 hours & 5 minutes today. I forgot to mute it. Still better than usual but I would have slept a bit more otherwise. I feel my body fighting me a bit. I woke up starving. I am listening to the cues. I had a bit of an early breakfast. I will keep my dinner light.
    Day 26 – 01/20 …..205.2….. Moving right along and hoping to keep it up! This puts me back to just below my starting weight. Now, to get busy!
    Day 27 – 01/21 …..205.4….. Just a small fluctuation. Yesterday was pretty busy. Ended up with OMAD and low calorie but not much exercise or movement. Lots of water though! I am still feeling happy and strong!
    Day 28 – 01/22 …..205.2…..
    Day 29 – 01/23 …..206.2….. I cooked a beautiful low calorie and low carb meal for my friend yesterday. Day was going great. Then……late night snack monster reared his ugly head. Pop-tarts and milk. It wasn’t worth a full pound gain by any stretch of the imagination. I will try to extra-tweak today to make up for it so that pound doesn’t stick around.
    Day 30 – 01/24 …..208.2….. This is not the way to get to Onederland. It’s not even the scenic route. Turning this train around so I can go in the right direction. Lost my way.
    Day 31 – 01/25 …..207.0….. I wish I could take credit for doing something wildly healthier and different but I can’t. Scale shot up yesterday more than expected and shot down today more than expected. Strange. I seriously don’t think, based on what I ate, that it was fluid retention so I am baffled but happy this morning to see a bit of a correction.
    Day 32 – 01/26 …..206.6….. I hope to make better choices today.
    Day 33 – 01/27 …..207.6….. I need potty duty and more exercise, both of which is proving impossible.
    Day 34 – 01/28 …..207.0….. Better….
    Day 35 – 01/29 …..207.6….. Back down on hands and knees scrubbing carpets in my new home. Previous owners were extremely heavy smokers and very old so the entire house (all 3 floors) has not been thoroughally cleaned in YEARS! One room has blue carpet which appeared to be 100% completely green until I hand cleaned it then went over with shampooer. Doing around the edges where the shampooer struggles to reach is the hardest but I’m getting it done. With the process I’m using, each room takes 6 days so this will be going on for months. It is my winter project because spring holds so many things to be done! So I am burning the calories, for sure, but not getting in many actual steps. I just hope for continued progress in my journey as well as in my home.
    Day 36 – 01/30 …..206.4….. The last of the chinese food today.
    Day 37 – 01/31 …..207.6….. Hello Chinese Food aftermath. I guess I deserve this.

    Weight Loss in January……………….. 0.6 GAIN (from the December 31st weight)
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..0.6 GAIN

    Day 38 – 02/01 …..207.6….. No change yet. Staying hopeful.
    Day 39 – 02/02 …..207.6….. Banana nut bread snack. That gets you nowhere.
    Day 40 – 02/03 …..208.8……Epic failure. I finished the banana nut bread. Bathroom remodel starts today which will make cooking difficult. I must be creative in my eating choices and be willing to cook later when I am so tired. I am still working on carpets. It will be awhile before I can breathe easy.
    Day 41 – 02/04 …..xxxxx…… Woke up running and actually forgot to weigh.
    Day 42 – 02/05 …..208.6….. Okay, let’s try this again!
    Day 43 – 02/06 …..207.2….. I can’t quite pat myself on the back. The day ended in lower calorie overall but the choices of quick frozen food was questionable. Not very healthy.
    Day 44 – 02/07 …..207.7….. Pizza with DD and DGS which is a rare occasion these days, especially with the pandemic. No formal exercise except chasing the 3 yr old up & down the stairs most of the evening! Back on track today.
    Day 45 – 02/08 …..207.4….. Better.
    Day 46 – 02/09 …..206.6….. I am expecting a high-sodium dinner so I am being extra careful today and will be drinking plenty of water.
    Day 47 – 02/10 …..207.2….. Hello Sodium! Traveling today too. Oh boy!
    Day 48 – 02/11 …..206.8….. Nearly ½ pound down after travel? I’m suspicious this is going to sneak up on me tomorrow since it hid today. We shall see. Keeping the faith…..
    Day 49 – 02/12 …..206.0….. Didn’t expect to see lower today honestly. Lots of water shed yesterday. Maybe I’ve lost that high sodium day.
    Day 50 – 02/13 …..206.0….. I am grateful for no change. I ate great healthy meals yesterday and then binged on snacks. And I do mean BINGE!!!!! I will be extra careful today to help make up for my bad choices last night.
    Day 51 – 02/14 …..206.4….. I have gained exactly 1 pound since the start of this challenge. Very disappointed! I did an experiment. I added up all the weight loss from day-to-day since Jan 1, 2020 to see how much weight I had lost because I knew I was losing the same pounds over and over. I have lost 103.8 pounds! However, my scale is showing a gain of 12.4 lbs during the same timeframe. Talk about self-sabotage! Something has to change!
    Day 52 – 02/15 …..208.8….. One meal yesterday. This is frustrating and very unfair.
    Day 53 – 02/16 …..207.2….. Weight coming back down. Grateful where I can be.

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ December 26, 2020 thru April 4, 2021
    My Name is Donna, Age 60. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    145320379.png


    Day 01 – 12/26 …..205.4…..My family Christmas dinner is on Sunday (tomorrow). I expect to see an increase. Good luck everyone this round.
    Day 02 – 12/27 …..203.2…..A nice big Whoosh. I cut back yesterday in anticipation for my very large Christmas Dinner and party today. I expect the scale will be up tomorrow, but I will be a good girl in the days following.
    Day 03 – 12/28 …..205.2…..Dinner was salty and fatty but delicious. I’ve got my work cut out for me.
    Day 04[/ b] – 12/29 …..206.0….. It had to be the over-abundance of wine. Perhaps dinner catching up a little with me too from 2 days ago?
    Day 05 - 12/30 …..206.0….. Poured out the wine and chose Chinese instead. Gave away the last of the goodies too. I will have the other half of the Chinese today.
    Day 06 – 12/31 …..207.0….. Expecting alcohol tonight but I will keep the food in check! Had the last of the Chinese food yesterday.

    Weight Loss in December……………….. 1.6 lb GAIN.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 LB GAIN


    Day 07 – 01/01 …..207.8….. Ouch! Chinese catching up? My late December Christmas dinner showing up? Perhaps. But then there were the buckeye balls brought over yesterday. The rest will go to my grandchildren that are visiting today.
    Day 08 – 01/02 …..208.1….. Travel today and tomorrow.
    Day 09 – 01/03 …..207.1….. Not sure I understand the fluctuations. It should have been yesterdays higher number or even higher after travel and restaurant food. Likely water retention released? More travel today.
    Day 10 – 01/04 …..207.4.….. Travel day cancelled yesterday. That allowed me to reach my 10,000 steps. However, my dinner wasn’t until 3:30 a.m. so that did not help the 9:00 a.m. weigh-in.
    Day 11 – 01/05 …..207.0….. I will have lots of company today as I’ve called in the troops to help me un-decorate and store my Christmas décor. I’m not sure how my meals will go – probably a very late dinner again, but I will get in lots of movement I hope.
    Day 12 – 01/06 …..207.2…..A normal fluctuation. Worked on taking down my Christmas stuff today with the help of one of my handymen. A long day.
    Day 13 – 01/07 …..207.2….. Drank milk. It always bloats me. Meals were good.
    Day 14 – 01/08 …..207.0….. Better portion control. @dawnbgethealthy WAY TO GO GIRL!!!! YOU ARE SLAYING IT!!!!
    Day 15 – 01/09 …..208.6….. Well-planned meals but milk seems to bloat me and kill my progress. I’m going back to a small amount of Fairlife. No more real milk, even when it’s lowfat!!!!
    Day 16 – 01/10 …..208.6….. Kept calories good again yesterday and avoided milk. Meals very late as a friend stopped by without notice until 11:00 p.m. That may explain it along with no TMI x 2 days now. My big worry coming up is the remodel we will likely be starting later this week in one of the bathrooms. It is friends and family helping and my meals will be interrupted greatly forcing late meals on the regular. It will be too many to feed and I just can’t eat in front of anyone. There will be many projects this year. I’ve got to figure it all out.
    Day 17 - 01/11 …..207.0….. Whoosh. Bathroom duty was better. A wretched night last night filled with personal family turmoil. Bad sleep. Traveled today while so unrested, so we will see what tomorrow holds.
    Day 18 – 01/12 …..207.0….. I am very happy to see no gain after travel. I chalk it up to falling asleep early causing all my meals to be earlier. However, sometimes it shows up a couple of days later so I will be watching and tracking the patterns.
    Day 19 – 01/13 …..207.2….. A tiny fluctuation. I managed to increase my steps yesterday but I had to work for it. I added a two mile indoor walk to get me over the hump.
    Day 20 – 01/14 …..207.0….. Movie night last night. A very good low cal/low carb planned dinner but the snacks were off-target. I’ll eat better today but not much movement. Feeling tired…..
    Day 21 – 01/15 …..xxxxx….. No chance to weigh today. A friend woke me up banging on door. Yesterday was good but last night I had too many bad snacks.
    Day 22 – 01/16 …..207.0….. A complete rest day yesterday. In bed at 6:45 pm to watch TV until 3:00 am. Slept in this morning to get more sleep than I’ve gotten in months. Over 6 hours which is AMAZING for me. I usually just don’t seem to need more than about 4.5 hours. Maybe retirement will change my sleeping patterns for the better! Going for a 6 for tomorrow’s numbers!
    Day 23 – 01/17 …..206.8…..Finally a 6! Barely, but finally!
    Day 24 – 01/18 …..206.2….. 3 meals instead of 2 yesterday but no snacks. Finally TMI (bathroom duty). It helped. Now I am going to push for a 5.
    Day 25 – 01/19 …..205.6…..Yay! The meals still aren’t perfect but I am focusing on at least a 12/12 IF and a “very diet” dinner in a small quantity. I am still eating very late, but better. Focusing on sleep. Phone woke me up at 5 hours & 5 minutes today. I forgot to mute it. Still better than usual but I would have slept a bit more otherwise. I feel my body fighting me a bit. I woke up starving. I am listening to the cues. I had a bit of an early breakfast. I will keep my dinner light.
    Day 26 – 01/20 …..205.2….. Moving right along and hoping to keep it up! This puts me back to just below my starting weight. Now, to get busy!
    Day 27 – 01/21 …..205.4….. Just a small fluctuation. Yesterday was pretty busy. Ended up with OMAD and low calorie but not much exercise or movement. Lots of water though! I am still feeling happy and strong!
    Day 28 – 01/22 …..205.2…..
    Day 29 – 01/23 …..206.2….. I cooked a beautiful low calorie and low carb meal for my friend yesterday. Day was going great. Then……late night snack monster reared his ugly head. Pop-tarts and milk. It wasn’t worth a full pound gain by any stretch of the imagination. I will try to extra-tweak today to make up for it so that pound doesn’t stick around.
    Day 30 – 01/24 …..208.2….. This is not the way to get to Onederland. It’s not even the scenic route. Turning this train around so I can go in the right direction. Lost my way.
    Day 31 – 01/25 …..207.0….. I wish I could take credit for doing something wildly healthier and different but I can’t. Scale shot up yesterday more than expected and shot down today more than expected. Strange. I seriously don’t think, based on what I ate, that it was fluid retention so I am baffled but happy this morning to see a bit of a correction.
    Day 32 – 01/26 …..206.6….. I hope to make better choices today.
    Day 33 – 01/27 …..207.6….. I need potty duty and more exercise, both of which is proving impossible.
    Day 34 – 01/28 …..207.0….. Better….
    Day 35 – 01/29 …..207.6….. Back down on hands and knees scrubbing carpets in my new home. Previous owners were extremely heavy smokers and very old so the entire house (all 3 floors) has not been thoroughally cleaned in YEARS! One room has blue carpet which appeared to be 100% completely green until I hand cleaned it then went over with shampooer. Doing around the edges where the shampooer struggles to reach is the hardest but I’m getting it done. With the process I’m using, each room takes 6 days so this will be going on for months. It is my winter project because spring holds so many things to be done! So I am burning the calories, for sure, but not getting in many actual steps. I just hope for continued progress in my journey as well as in my home.
    Day 36 – 01/30 …..206.4….. The last of the chinese food today.
    Day 37 – 01/31 …..207.6….. Hello Chinese Food aftermath. I guess I deserve this.

    Weight Loss in January……………….. 0.6 GAIN (from the December 31st weight)
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..0.6 GAIN

    Day 38 – 02/01 …..207.6….. No change yet. Staying hopeful.
    Day 39 – 02/02 …..207.6….. Banana nut bread snack. That gets you nowhere.
    Day 40 – 02/03 …..208.8……Epic failure. I finished the banana nut bread. Bathroom remodel starts today which will make cooking difficult. I must be creative in my eating choices and be willing to cook later when I am so tired. I am still working on carpets. It will be awhile before I can breathe easy.
    Day 41 – 02/04 …..xxxxx…… Woke up running and actually forgot to weigh.
    Day 42 – 02/05 …..208.6….. Okay, let’s try this again!
    Day 43 – 02/06 …..207.2….. I can’t quite pat myself on the back. The day ended in lower calorie overall but the choices of quick frozen food was questionable. Not very healthy.
    Day 44 – 02/07 …..207.7….. Pizza with DD and DGS which is a rare occasion these days, especially with the pandemic. No formal exercise except chasing the 3 yr old up & down the stairs most of the evening! Back on track today.
    Day 45 – 02/08 …..207.4….. Better.
    Day 46 – 02/09 …..206.6….. I am expecting a high-sodium dinner so I am being extra careful today and will be drinking plenty of water.
    Day 47 – 02/10 …..207.2….. Hello Sodium! Traveling today too. Oh boy!
    Day 48 – 02/11 …..206.8….. Nearly ½ pound down after travel? I’m suspicious this is going to sneak up on me tomorrow since it hid today. We shall see. Keeping the faith…..
    Day 49 – 02/12 …..206.0….. Didn’t expect to see lower today honestly. Lots of water shed yesterday. Maybe I’ve lost that high sodium day.
    Day 50 – 02/13 …..206.0….. I am grateful for no change. I ate great healthy meals yesterday and then binged on snacks. And I do mean BINGE!!!!! I will be extra careful today to help make up for my bad choices last night.
    Day 51 – 02/14 …..206.4….. I have gained exactly 1 pound since the start of this challenge. Very disappointed! I did an experiment. I added up all the weight loss from day-to-day since Jan 1, 2020 to see how much weight I had lost because I knew I was losing the same pounds over and over. I have lost 103.8 pounds! However, my scale is showing a gain of 12.4 lbs during the same timeframe. Talk about self-sabotage! Something has to change!
    Day 52 – 02/15 …..208.8….. One meal yesterday. This is frustrating and very unfair.
    Day 53 – 02/16 …..207.2….. Weight coming back down. Grateful where I can be.
    Day 54 – 02/17 …..204.6….. Sodium likely gone. Great food choices yesterday. No exercise due to work crew. They are here again today.

    @deepwoodslady
    Great drop Donna. Below your start weight for this 100.
    I am sure that you are getting lots of exercise running around while the work crew is there.
    What are they working on this week? Bathroom on the main floor?

    I'm Dawn. I live in SE British Columbia, Canada.

    Female, Age 60, 5'2"

    MFP Start Weight Oct 28.18: 191.0
    Ultimate Goal Weight: Not sure

    This is my 5th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    Day 1: 12/26: 137.7 - Extremely active day, but also ate quite a bit. 451 calories left over in the Green
    Day 2: 12/27: 137.1 - I have enough leftovers for a few days, stuffing and gravy is my weakness so I will load my plate with veggies and turkey and stretch out the badder stuff : - ) 561 in the Green
    Day 3: 12/28: 137.7 - I was awake throughout the night and weighed less just now, but am using my very early morning weight. 717 in the Green
    Day 4: 12/29: 137.2 - Back on track at least until NYE. 302 in the Green
    Day 5: 12/30: 137.5 - Hiccup yesterday, some sad news and went off a bit. 791 in the Green
    Day 6: 12/31: 138.3 - That is the highest that I have weighed in awhile. Not going to overdo it tonight, but I will have some Champagne and something delicious to eat. 384 in the Green
    Day 7: 01/01: 138.4 - I had Ribs, it might catch up more. I have had lots of activity, but also ate more than usual. 111 in the Green
    Day 8: 01/02: 137.2 - Now to get rid of the holiday eating. 624 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight:
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 137.2 - i see that I didn't set a goal weight for this week!
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3490 - So close to a pound worth
    Day 9: Sun, 1/3: 136.1 - A bunch of water loss yesterday. I remained very active throughout the holidays even though I upped my consumption. Very happy to see this number, it motivates me. 417 in the Green
    Day 10: Mon, 1/4: 135.9 - Going to do my measurements today. an astounding 1278 in the Green
    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 135.4 - Many workouts yesterday, and back to healthier eating. A scale drop always motivates me to be "good". We all fight so hard for each pound, too easy to backslide and undo the hard work. 1354 in the Green
    Day 12: Wed, 1/6: 135.5 - Very long work day and a very late dinner. Burned lots of calories and didn't eat them back, hoping that shows up in a day or two. 1190 in the Green
    Day 13: Thurs, 1/7: 134.8 - New low : - ) All of this calorie burning is showing up on the scale. Work alone was 20,000 steps yesterday on top of my daily workout. 506 in the Green
    Day 14: Fri, 1/8: 134.1 - Lowest so far in many many years. Hoping to keep this going. 620 in the Green
    Day 15: Sat, 1/9: 135.1 - Kind of bad choices yesterday, but I touched that 134.1 once so I know that I can get back there. 721 in the Green
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 135.1
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 135.1
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 6086, should have lost more than a pound, and did.

    Week 4:

    Day 16: 1/10: 137.4 - Wow, almost back up to Day 1 weight for some reason. Hoping that this is just a fluctuation. I have been on track except for Friday (which obviously caught up to me just now), but even then I was under calorie goals due to activity. 831 in the Green
    Day 17: 1/11: 137.4 - Got in lots of activity yesterday because I was planning on a huge steak and prawns for dinner. This will fuel my body for days to come, but I want to get this number back down. 663 in the Green
    Day 18: 1/12: 136.1 - Better, still 1 pound up from last week. 668 in the Green
    Day 19: 1/13: 136.5 - I'm okay with this, but hope to get closer to last week's EW. 558 in the Green
    Day 20: 1/14: 135.8 - Sticking with the plan. Hoping to be able to leave work and get up to another town's arena for a 1 hour public skate today. 827 in the Green
    Day 21: 1/15: 136.7 - Loads of activity yesterday, but .. Nachos. 410 in the Green
    Day 22: 1/16: 136.5 - So it looks like I lost 1 pound in a month. 452 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 134.4
    4th Week Actual Weight: 136.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3778 - just enough to lose a pound

    Day 23: Sun, 1/17: 137.3 - Ouch, apparently still paying for Friday's nachos. 999 in the Green
    Day 24: Mon, 1/18: - 135.8 - Much better. Now to get back to week 2's weights. 705 in the Green
    Day 25: Tues, 1/19: - 135.6 - Got in a few extra Fitness Marshall songs here and there 2 or 3 at a time throughout the day yesterday which added up to a nice calorie burn (and mood lifter) overall. 539 in the Green
    Day 26: Wed, 1/20: - 135.5 - I have moved all of my jobs from today to tomorrow. I am going to get out for a nice long walk/hike. Yesterday was incredibly windy with dust blowing everywhere when I tried to leave work for a small walk/break so I didn't spend any time outdoors. I had my 2 year physical early in the morning. Doc was pleased with my weight loss, but still needs me to lose more to bring my blood pressure further down and get me to a healthy body weight for my height. Working on it. Very slow. 526 in the Green
    Day 27: Thurs, 1/21: 135.4 - Always happy to see a drop even if tiny. 368 in the Green
    Day 28: Fri, 1/22: 136.9 : - ( 472 in the Green
    Day 29: Sat, 1/23: 136.4 - 203 in the Green

    5th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    5th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - disappointed with this, but know that it is up to me.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 3812 - enough to lose 1 pound
    Day 30: Sun, 1/24: 138.1 - Argh. Wings last night must have been the culprit. I wasn't over my calories though. 1060 in the Green
    Day 31: Mon, 1/25: 138.3 - Sodium? Lots of activity yesterday, I feel like the weight will drop back down over the next few days. 762 in the Green
    Day 32: Tues, 1/26: 135.3 - Maybe just being so banged up was causing my body to hold on to weight? Very happy to see this. 703 in the Green
    Day 33: Wed, 1/27: 135.2 - Very busy work week, prepping my meals ahead of time so that I don't grab something "bad". 799 in the Green
    Day 34: Thurs, 1/28: - 135.2 - Worked a super long day yesterday, I didn't get home until after midnight, but had to eat because I hadn't had anything since the morning. I thought that my weight would reflect the late eating and tiny amount of sleep. Glad that it didn't. 653 in the Green
    Day 35: Fri, 1/29: - 135.5 - Looming end of week weigh in always motivates me to be "good" : - ) 844 in the Green
    Day 36: Sat, 1/30: 134.8 - Going to try not to blow it today. 440 in the Green
    6th Week Goal Weight: 134.5
    6th Week Actual Weight: 134.8 - Close
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 5261- enough to lose a pound

    Day 37: Sun, 1/31: 136.9 - Ouch and TMI - 907 in the Green
    Day 38: Mon, 2/1: 137.5 - Another TMI uptick, expecting a woosh over the next few days. 562 in the Green
    Day 39: Tues, 2/2: 137.1 - Can't say that I am not disappointed to be so close to my start weight 39 days ago. Mind you I haven't been out on my trail walks in well over a week so that is probably making a difference (melting here, so water on top of ice, not going) 729 in the Green
    Day 40: Wed, 2/3: 135.9 - I touched the 134.1 in the last 100, but I was outside lots. Missing the trails indeed. 577 in the Green
    Day 41: Thurs, 2/4: 136.3 - MFP has been suggesting the 120s for 4 months now (if every day was like today) but it still feels far off. 966 in the Green
    Day 42: Fri, 2/5: 134.8 - So much better. I got out of the Obese Zone in September, working towards getting out of the Overweight Zone some day.
    Day 43: Sat: 2/6: 135.8 - Oh well, I will keep working at it. 678 in the Green

    7th Week Goal Weight: 134.9
    7th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 4949 - More than enough to lose a pound.


    Day 44: Sun, 2/7: 136.1 - Like a yo-yo. 193 in the Green
    Day 45: Mon, 2/8: 137.5 - Superbowl no-nos yesterday. 915 in the Green
    Day 46: Tues, 2/9: 137.2 - Working hard to get it back down. 862 in the Green
    Day 47: Wed, 2/10: 134.4 - Whew. Too hard fought to blow it. 489 in the Green
    Day 48: Thurs, 2/11: 134.2 - 383 in the Green
    Day 49: Fri, 2/12: 134.3 - I got to skate yesterday. I burned a lot of calories between that, workouts, and pedometer (1198) but ate more too. Going to eat light today. 661 in the Green
    Day 50: Sat, 2/13: 135.5 - Argh, no reason for a gain today after 3 days in the "4s". 817 in the Green

    8th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I just keep plugging in these goal numbers, I hit this number in week 2. Either wishful thinking or something to work towards.
    8th Week Actual Weight: 135.5 - I actually was on a good track to make my goal.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 4320 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 51: Sun, 2/14: 135.6 - Hoping that the weather goes back to "normal" soon, outdoor activity tends to lose me more weight than indoor for some reason. Perhaps it is a chemical that only gets produced outside? 1144 calories in the Red.
    Day 52: Mon, 2/15: 136.3 - This will go up more, I had Ribs yesterday, so this choice will lead to the expected results. Glad that I stop myself from having them once per week like I used to. MFP says that I would be 144 pounds in 5 weeks if every day were like that. I have to keep with the calorie intake/burn in which MFP says that I will be 123 in 5 weeks if I eat like that every day. I had an entire day of calories extra yesterday, that will take a while to undo. I will work out extra today and eat frequently and light to try to mitigate it. 841 in the Green
    Day 53: Tues, 2/16: 135.3 - That is the quickest that I have bounced back from Ribs. It was a holiday yesterday though, so I had time for lots of workouts. Or maybe my body went into fat burning overdrive from the excessive calories the day before. 725 in the Green
    Day 54: Wed, 2/17: 134.8 - I have been working out and eating well since the Ribs. I have now made up for that day in the "Red" and am moving forward. Once in awhile "treat" takes a while to get back off.
    Day 55: Thurs, 2/18:
    Day 56: Fri, 2/19:
    Day 57: Sat, 2/20:

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I guess that I will just keep plugging this number in until I hit it again. Hit it in week 2, so maybe this week if I can stay "good".

    I'm Dawn. I live in SE British Columbia, Canada.

    Female, Age 60, 5'2"

    MFP Start Weight Oct 28.18: 191.0
    Ultimate Goal Weight: Not sure

    This is my 5th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    Day 1: 12/26: 137.7 - Extremely active day, but also ate quite a bit. 451 calories left over in the Green
    Day 2: 12/27: 137.1 - I have enough leftovers for a few days, stuffing and gravy is my weakness so I will load my plate with veggies and turkey and stretch out the badder stuff : - ) 561 in the Green
    Day 3: 12/28: 137.7 - I was awake throughout the night and weighed less just now, but am using my very early morning weight. 717 in the Green
    Day 4: 12/29: 137.2 - Back on track at least until NYE. 302 in the Green
    Day 5: 12/30: 137.5 - Hiccup yesterday, some sad news and went off a bit. 791 in the Green
    Day 6: 12/31: 138.3 - That is the highest that I have weighed in awhile. Not going to overdo it tonight, but I will have some Champagne and something delicious to eat. 384 in the Green
    Day 7: 01/01: 138.4 - I had Ribs, it might catch up more. I have had lots of activity, but also ate more than usual. 111 in the Green
    Day 8: 01/02: 137.2 - Now to get rid of the holiday eating. 624 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight:
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 137.2 - i see that I didn't set a goal weight for this week!
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3490 - So close to a pound worth
    Day 9: Sun, 1/3: 136.1 - A bunch of water loss yesterday. I remained very active throughout the holidays even though I upped my consumption. Very happy to see this number, it motivates me. 417 in the Green
    Day 10: Mon, 1/4: 135.9 - Going to do my measurements today. an astounding 1278 in the Green
    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 135.4 - Many workouts yesterday, and back to healthier eating. A scale drop always motivates me to be "good". We all fight so hard for each pound, too easy to backslide and undo the hard work. 1354 in the Green
    Day 12: Wed, 1/6: 135.5 - Very long work day and a very late dinner. Burned lots of calories and didn't eat them back, hoping that shows up in a day or two. 1190 in the Green
    Day 13: Thurs, 1/7: 134.8 - New low : - ) All of this calorie burning is showing up on the scale. Work alone was 20,000 steps yesterday on top of my daily workout. 506 in the Green
    Day 14: Fri, 1/8: 134.1 - Lowest so far in many many years. Hoping to keep this going. 620 in the Green
    Day 15: Sat, 1/9: 135.1 - Kind of bad choices yesterday, but I touched that 134.1 once so I know that I can get back there. 721 in the Green
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 135.1
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 135.1
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 6086, should have lost more than a pound, and did.

    Day 16: 1/10: 137.4 - Wow, almost back up to Day 1 weight for some reason. Hoping that this is just a fluctuation. I have been on track except for Friday (which obviously caught up to me just now), but even then I was under calorie goals due to activity. 831 in the Green
    Day 17: 1/11: 137.4 - Got in lots of activity yesterday because I was planning on a huge steak and prawns for dinner. This will fuel my body for days to come, but I want to get this number back down. 663 in the Green
    Day 18: 1/12: 136.1 - Better, still 1 pound up from last week. 668 in the Green
    Day 19: 1/13: 136.5 - I'm okay with this, but hope to get closer to last week's EW. 558 in the Green
    Day 20: 1/14: 135.8 - Sticking with the plan. Hoping to be able to leave work and get up to another town's arena for a 1 hour public skate today. 827 in the Green
    Day 21: 1/15: 136.7 - Loads of activity yesterday, but .. Nachos. 410 in the Green
    Day 22: 1/16: 136.5 - So it looks like I lost 1 pound in a month. 452 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 134.4
    4th Week Actual Weight: 136.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3778 - just enough to lose a pound

    Day 23: Sun, 1/17: 137.3 - Ouch, apparently still paying for Friday's nachos. 999 in the Green
    Day 24: Mon, 1/18: - 135.8 - Much better. Now to get back to week 2's weights. 705 in the Green
    Day 25: Tues, 1/19: - 135.6 - Got in a few extra Fitness Marshall songs here and there 2 or 3 at a time throughout the day yesterday which added up to a nice calorie burn (and mood lifter) overall. 539 in the Green
    Day 26: Wed, 1/20: - 135.5 - I have moved all of my jobs from today to tomorrow. I am going to get out for a nice long walk/hike. Yesterday was incredibly windy with dust blowing everywhere when I tried to leave work for a small walk/break so I didn't spend any time outdoors. I had my 2 year physical early in the morning. Doc was pleased with my weight loss, but still needs me to lose more to bring my blood pressure further down and get me to a healthy body weight for my height. Working on it. Very slow. 526 in the Green
    Day 27: Thurs, 1/21: 135.4 - Always happy to see a drop even if tiny. 368 in the Green
    Day 28: Fri, 1/22: 136.9 : - ( 472 in the Green
    Day 29: Sat, 1/23: 136.4 - 203 in the Green

    5th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    5th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - disappointed with this, but know that it is up to me.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 3812 - enough to lose 1 pound
    Day 30: Sun, 1/24: 138.1 - Argh. Wings last night must have been the culprit. I wasn't over my calories though. 1060 in the Green
    Day 31: Mon, 1/25: 138.3 - Sodium? Lots of activity yesterday, I feel like the weight will drop back down over the next few days. 762 in the Green
    Day 32: Tues, 1/26: 135.3 - Maybe just being so banged up was causing my body to hold on to weight? Very happy to see this. 703 in the Green
    Day 33: Wed, 1/27: 135.2 - Very busy work week, prepping my meals ahead of time so that I don't grab something "bad". 799 in the Green
    Day 34: Thurs, 1/28: - 135.2 - Worked a super long day yesterday, I didn't get home until after midnight, but had to eat because I hadn't had anything since the morning. I thought that my weight would reflect the late eating and tiny amount of sleep. Glad that it didn't. 653 in the Green
    Day 35: Fri, 1/29: - 135.5 - Looming end of week weigh in always motivates me to be "good" : - ) 844 in the Green
    Day 36: Sat, 1/30: 134.8 - Going to try not to blow it today. 440 in the Green
    6th Week Goal Weight: 134.5
    6th Week Actual Weight: 134.8 - Close
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 5261- enough to lose a pound

    Day 37: Sun, 1/31: 136.9 - Ouch and TMI - 907 in the Green
    Day 38: Mon, 2/1: 137.5 - Another TMI uptick, expecting a woosh over the next few days. 562 in the Green
    Day 39: Tues, 2/2: 137.1 - Can't say that I am not disappointed to be so close to my start weight 39 days ago. Mind you I haven't been out on my trail walks in well over a week so that is probably making a difference (melting here, so water on top of ice, not going) 729 in the Green
    Day 40: Wed, 2/3: 135.9 - I touched the 134.1 in the last 100, but I was outside lots. Missing the trails indeed. 577 in the Green
    Day 41: Thurs, 2/4: 136.3 - MFP has been suggesting the 120s for 4 months now (if every day was like today) but it still feels far off. 966 in the Green
    Day 42: Fri, 2/5: 134.8 - So much better. I got out of the Obese Zone in September, working towards getting out of the Overweight Zone some day.
    Day 43: Sat: 2/6: 135.8 - Oh well, I will keep working at it. 678 in the Green

    7th Week Goal Weight: 134.9
    7th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 4949 - More than enough to lose a pound.


    Day 44: Sun, 2/7: 136.1 - Like a yo-yo. 193 in the Green
    Day 45: Mon, 2/8: 137.5 - Superbowl no-nos yesterday. 915 in the Green
    Day 46: Tues, 2/9: 137.2 - Working hard to get it back down. 862 in the Green
    Day 47: Wed, 2/10: 134.4 - Whew. Too hard fought to blow it. 489 in the Green
    Day 48: Thurs, 2/11: 134.2 - 383 in the Green
    Day 49: Fri, 2/12: 134.3 - I got to skate yesterday. I burned a lot of calories between that, workouts, and pedometer (1198) but ate more too. Going to eat light today. 661 in the Green
    Day 50: Sat, 2/13: 135.5 - Argh, no reason for a gain today after 3 days in the "4s". 817 in the Green

    8th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I just keep plugging in these goal numbers, I hit this number in week 2. Either wishful thinking or something to work towards.
    8th Week Actual Weight: 135.5 - I actually was on a good track to make my goal.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 4320 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 51: Sun, 2/14: 135.6 - Hoping that the weather goes back to "normal" soon, outdoor activity tends to lose me more weight than indoor for some reason. Perhaps it is a chemical that only gets produced outside? 1144 calories in the Red.
    Day 52: Mon, 2/15: 136.3 - This will go up more, I had Ribs yesterday, so this choice will lead to the expected results. Glad that I stop myself from having them once per week like I used to. MFP says that I would be 144 pounds in 5 weeks if every day were like that. I have to keep with the calorie intake/burn in which MFP says that I will be 123 in 5 weeks if I eat like that every day. I had an entire day of calories extra yesterday, that will take a while to undo. I will work out extra today and eat frequently and light to try to mitigate it. 841 in the Green
    Day 53: Tues, 2/16: 135.3 - That is the quickest that I have bounced back from Ribs. It was a holiday yesterday though, so I had time for lots of workouts. Or maybe my body went into fat burning overdrive from the excessive calories the day before. 725 in the Green
    Day 54: Wed, 2/17: 134.8 - I have been working out and eating well since the Ribs. I have now made up for that day in the "Red" and am moving forward. Once in awhile "treat" takes a while to get back off. 717 in the Green
    Day 55: Thurs, 2/18: 134.4 - Worried about our friends in Texas with this climate change weather whip.
    Day 56: Fri, 2/19:
    Day 57: Sat, 2/20:

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.1 - I guess that I will just keep plugging this number in until I hit it again. Hit it in week 2, so maybe this week if I can stay "good".

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ December 26, 2020 thru April 4, 2021

    145320379.png


    Day 01 – 12/26 …..205.4…..My family Christmas dinner is on Sunday (tomorrow). I expect to see an increase. Good luck everyone this round.
    Day 02 – 12/27 …..203.2…..A nice big Whoosh. I cut back yesterday in anticipation for my very large Christmas Dinner and party today. I expect the scale will be up tomorrow, but I will be a good girl in the days following.
    Day 03 – 12/28 …..205.2…..Dinner was salty and fatty but delicious. I’ve got my work cut out for me.
    Day 04[/ b] – 12/29 …..206.0….. It had to be the over-abundance of wine. Perhaps dinner catching up a little with me too from 2 days ago?
    Day 05 - 12/30 …..206.0….. Poured out the wine and chose Chinese instead. Gave away the last of the goodies too. I will have the other half of the Chinese today.
    Day 06 – 12/31 …..207.0….. Expecting alcohol tonight but I will keep the food in check! Had the last of the Chinese food yesterday.

    Weight Loss in December……………….. 1.6 lb GAIN.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 LB GAIN


    Day 07 – 01/01 …..207.8….. Ouch! Chinese catching up? My late December Christmas dinner showing up? Perhaps. But then there were the buckeye balls brought over yesterday. The rest will go to my grandchildren that are visiting today.
    Day 08 – 01/02 …..208.1….. Travel today and tomorrow.
    Day 09 – 01/03 …..207.1….. Not sure I understand the fluctuations. It should have been yesterdays higher number or even higher after travel and restaurant food. Likely water retention released? More travel today.
    Day 10 – 01/04 …..207.4.….. Travel day cancelled yesterday. That allowed me to reach my 10,000 steps. However, my dinner wasn’t until 3:30 a.m. so that did not help the 9:00 a.m. weigh-in.
    Day 11 – 01/05 …..207.0….. I will have lots of company today as I’ve called in the troops to help me un-decorate and store my Christmas décor. I’m not sure how my meals will go – probably a very late dinner again, but I will get in lots of movement I hope.
    Day 12 – 01/06 …..207.2…..A normal fluctuation. Worked on taking down my Christmas stuff today with the help of one of my handymen. A long day.
    Day 13 – 01/07 …..207.2….. Drank milk. It always bloats me. Meals were good.
    Day 14 – 01/08 …..207.0….. Better portion control. @dawnbgethealthy WAY TO GO GIRL!!!! YOU ARE SLAYING IT!!!!
    Day 15 – 01/09 …..208.6….. Well-planned meals but milk seems to bloat me and kill my progress. I’m going back to a small amount of Fairlife. No more real milk, even when it’s lowfat!!!!
    Day 16 – 01/10 …..208.6….. Kept calories good again yesterday and avoided milk. Meals very late as a friend stopped by without notice until 11:00 p.m. That may explain it along with no TMI x 2 days now. My big worry coming up is the remodel we will likely be starting later this week in one of the bathrooms. It is friends and family helping and my meals will be interrupted greatly forcing late meals on the regular. It will be too many to feed and I just can’t eat in front of anyone. There will be many projects this year. I’ve got to figure it all out.
    Day 17 - 01/11 …..207.0….. Whoosh. Bathroom duty was better. A wretched night last night filled with personal family turmoil. Bad sleep. Traveled today while so unrested, so we will see what tomorrow holds.
    Day 18 – 01/12 …..207.0….. I am very happy to see no gain after travel. I chalk it up to falling asleep early causing all my meals to be earlier. However, sometimes it shows up a couple of days later so I will be watching and tracking the patterns.
    Day 19 – 01/13 …..207.2….. A tiny fluctuation. I managed to increase my steps yesterday but I had to work for it. I added a two mile indoor walk to get me over the hump.
    Day 20 – 01/14 …..207.0….. Movie night last night. A very good low cal/low carb planned dinner but the snacks were off-target. I’ll eat better today but not much movement. Feeling tired…..
    Day 21 – 01/15 …..xxxxx….. No chance to weigh today. A friend woke me up banging on door. Yesterday was good but last night I had too many bad snacks.
    Day 22 – 01/16 …..207.0….. A complete rest day yesterday. In bed at 6:45 pm to watch TV until 3:00 am. Slept in this morning to get more sleep than I’ve gotten in months. Over 6 hours which is AMAZING for me. I usually just don’t seem to need more than about 4.5 hours. Maybe retirement will change my sleeping patterns for the better! Going for a 6 for tomorrow’s numbers!
    Day 23 – 01/17 …..206.8…..Finally a 6! Barely, but finally!
    Day 24 – 01/18 …..206.2….. 3 meals instead of 2 yesterday but no snacks. Finally TMI (bathroom duty). It helped. Now I am going to push for a 5.
    Day 25 – 01/19 …..205.6…..Yay! The meals still aren’t perfect but I am focusing on at least a 12/12 IF and a “very diet” dinner in a small quantity. I am still eating very late, but better. Focusing on sleep. Phone woke me up at 5 hours & 5 minutes today. I forgot to mute it. Still better than usual but I would have slept a bit more otherwise. I feel my body fighting me a bit. I woke up starving. I am listening to the cues. I had a bit of an early breakfast. I will keep my dinner light.
    Day 26 – 01/20 …..205.2….. Moving right along and hoping to keep it up! This puts me back to just below my starting weight. Now, to get busy!
    Day 27 – 01/21 …..205.4….. Just a small fluctuation. Yesterday was pretty busy. Ended up with OMAD and low calorie but not much exercise or movement. Lots of water though! I am still feeling happy and strong!
    Day 28 – 01/22 …..205.2…..
    Day 29 – 01/23 …..206.2….. I cooked a beautiful low calorie and low carb meal for my friend yesterday. Day was going great. Then……late night snack monster reared his ugly head. Pop-tarts and milk. It wasn’t worth a full pound gain by any stretch of the imagination. I will try to extra-tweak today to make up for it so that pound doesn’t stick around.
    Day 30 – 01/24 …..208.2….. This is not the way to get to Onederland. It’s not even the scenic route. Turning this train around so I can go in the right direction. Lost my way.
    Day 31 – 01/25 …..207.0….. I wish I could take credit for doing something wildly healthier and different but I can’t. Scale shot up yesterday more than expected and shot down today more than expected. Strange. I seriously don’t think, based on what I ate, that it was fluid retention so I am baffled but happy this morning to see a bit of a correction.
    Day 32 – 01/26 …..206.6….. I hope to make better choices today.
    Day 33 – 01/27 …..207.6….. I need potty duty and more exercise, both of which is proving impossible.
    Day 34 – 01/28 …..207.0….. Better….
    Day 35 – 01/29 …..207.6….. Back down on hands and knees scrubbing carpets in my new home. Previous owners were extremely heavy smokers and very old so the entire house (all 3 floors) has not been thoroughally cleaned in YEARS! One room has blue carpet which appeared to be 100% completely green until I hand cleaned it then went over with shampooer. Doing around the edges where the shampooer struggles to reach is the hardest but I’m getting it done. With the process I’m using, each room takes 6 days so this will be going on for months. It is my winter project because spring holds so many things to be done! So I am burning the calories, for sure, but not getting in many actual steps. I just hope for continued progress in my journey as well as in my home.
    Day 36 – 01/30 …..206.4….. The last of the chinese food today.
    Day 37 – 01/31 …..207.6….. Hello Chinese Food aftermath. I guess I deserve this.

    Weight Loss in January……………….. 0.6 GAIN (from the December 31st weight)
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..0.6 GAIN

    Day 38 – 02/01 …..207.6….. No change yet. Staying hopeful.
    Day 39 – 02/02 …..207.6….. Banana nut bread snack. That gets you nowhere.
    Day 40 – 02/03 …..208.8……Epic failure. I finished the banana nut bread. Bathroom remodel starts today which will make cooking difficult. I must be creative in my eating choices and be willing to cook later when I am so tired. I am still working on carpets. It will be awhile before I can breathe easy.
    Day 41 – 02/04 …..xxxxx…… Woke up running and actually forgot to weigh.
    Day 42 – 02/05 …..208.6….. Okay, let’s try this again!
    Day 43 – 02/06 …..207.2….. I can’t quite pat myself on the back. The day ended in lower calorie overall but the choices of quick frozen food was questionable. Not very healthy.
    Day 44 – 02/07 …..207.7….. Pizza with DD and DGS which is a rare occasion these days, especially with the pandemic. No formal exercise except chasing the 3 yr old up & down the stairs most of the evening! Back on track today.
    Day 45 – 02/08 …..207.4….. Better.
    Day 46 – 02/09 …..206.6….. I am expecting a high-sodium dinner so I am being extra careful today and will be drinking plenty of water.
    Day 47 – 02/10 …..207.2….. Hello Sodium! Traveling today too. Oh boy!
    Day 48 – 02/11 …..206.8….. Nearly ½ pound down after travel? I’m suspicious this is going to sneak up on me tomorrow since it hid today. We shall see. Keeping the faith…..
    Day 49 – 02/12 …..206.0….. Didn’t expect to see lower today honestly. Lots of water shed yesterday. Maybe I’ve lost that high sodium day.
    Day 50 – 02/13 …..206.0….. I am grateful for no change. I ate great healthy meals yesterday and then binged on snacks. And I do mean BINGE!!!!! I will be extra careful today to help make up for my bad choices last night.
    Day 51 – 02/14 …..206.4….. I have gained exactly 1 pound since the start of this challenge. Very disappointed! I did an experiment. I added up all the weight loss from day-to-day since Jan 1, 2020 to see how much weight I had lost because I knew I was losing the same pounds over and over. I have lost 103.8 pounds! However, my scale is showing a gain of 12.4 lbs during the same timeframe. Talk about self-sabotage! Something has to change!
    Day 52 – 02/15 …..208.8….. One meal yesterday. This is frustrating and very unfair.
    Day 53 – 02/16 …..207.2….. Weight coming back down. Grateful where I can be.
    Day 54 – 02/17 …..204.6….. Sodium likely gone. Great food choices yesterday. No exercise due to work crew. They are here again today.
    Day 55 – 02/18 …..204.4….. Very little sleep and some late night hunger so I am happy for this small drop on the scale.
    Day 56 – 02/19 …..xxxxx…..
    Day 57 – 02/20 …..xxxxx…..

    @dawnbgethealthy


    They are working on the main bath on the main floor (not the master bath). Plumber working in basement for pipes and drains. The more he replaces or relocates them, the more the other attached ones leak, especially the PVC ones. He is also working with the copper lines that bring water in. The bathroom was a 3/4 with just a shower. It is being widened and will now have a larger vanity, a bathtub shower combo, another shower and a linen closet it never had.

    The carpenter upstairs is tearing down the walls of the utility room and giving 1/2 the space to the bathroom. So I am getting a new Utility area which requires moving all the water lines and drains for the washer (more work for Charlie downstairs.) The electrician has moved most of the plugs, switches and now has to do some overhead lighting which was moved.

    Once the carpenter finishes the demo (he is done installing the headers) he will start to build new walls in multiple areas of the bathroom and utility. Then it is drywall (it won't be finished just yet). Then we can bring in the tubs, toilet, vanity etc.

    We will be installing a pocket door and adding a heat vent (more work downstairs with the duct system). In the hallway the heat system must be moved to install the pocket door.

    Somewhere down the road flooring will be installed but that is complicated because I will probably want it to match the hallway which connects to the hip bone, which connects to the thigh bone.....well, you get the picture.

    Lots of shopping online. I am in a rural area so no big box hardware here (like home depot etc) so many things are being delivered. Some trips out of town when necessary. Lots of sitting on computer shopping to get things on time. No privacy for exercise anyway. I'm doing my best. Focusing more on diet right now. Can't wait for spring so I can get in some hikes!

    Thanks for you interest, continued support and always kind comments. I appreciate them so much!
