    When my husband lost weight in his 40s the skin took about a year to really bounce back. Give it a little time.
    At 25 years old ... focusing on yourself and getting your life & weight under control will be so much help to your future of a long healthy life.

    What are you doing for exercise to help tone? I noticed that you are fasting 23/1 ... was that how you also lost the earlier 200-300 lbs?

    You are doing GREAT!!!

    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…..2.4 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 …..204.8….. Good diet yesterday but very very little movement. On the computer most of the day with tax prep. Today is day 3 with no TMI so I think that contributes. Still no word of vaccine in my little town. They are still on the very first group here – Group 1A for medical personnel. We don’t have many medical personnel in our town so it is a lack of the vaccine itself. I just want to get this over with! I am group 1C due to diabetes and cancer remission.
    Day 57 – 02/20 …..205.0…..
    Day 58 – 02/21 …..205.0….. Grateful to have the same numbers glaring at me from the scale. My calories were okay yesterday but OMGosh on the choices I made. Horrid, Horrid little girl I was! Absolutely nothing fueling or replenishing about what I stuck in my pie-hole. That makes me feel gluttonous and (almost) childlike. I was a limited thinker yesterday. Today I will ponder before I put my greedy little fingers upon anything!
    Day 59 – 02/22 …..207.2….. I had a bowl of ice cream instead of lunch. I guess my body knows the difference and punished me. Nutrition matters.
    Day 60 – 02/23 …..207.2…… I refuse to spend 100 days making more better choices than not, move movement than not, more sacrifices than not and end up in a higher weight than when I started! I am expecting Chinese tonight (and leftovers tomorrow) for dinner. Pushing water. Skipping lunch. Diet alone isn’t doing it though. I need more movement and there is absolutely zero privacy here during this remodel. (And more remodeling coming.) I’m so tired at night but I have to fit something in!
    Day 61 – 02/24 .….207.5…… Chinese leftovers today so I don’t expect to see anything very nice or friendly on the scale tomorrow.
    Day 62 – 02/25 …..207.5…… Thankful that the leftovers didn’t kill my scales or my spirit. Using the stairs………..
    Day 63 – 02/26 …..207.2…… Yay, I put that Chinese behind me (which was a tasty treat) and had a low calorie dinner yesterday. I walked the steps but found I could only do it once at a time (very steep and I am out of shape). That is okay because I can just do it more often and build up my strength. Love the idea!
    Day 64 – 02/27 …..207.6…… Frustrated. It was the homemade sour dough bread from the Amish with butter. I should not have went back for that 2nd piece later last night. Extra stairs today!
    Day 65 – 02/28 …..207.0…… Although this was a nice overnight drop, I am up 1.6 lbs since the start of this challenge. My main goal now is just to get back to starting weight by the end. It sounds easy, but based on my stats, it won’t be. Focusing on this shorter term goal at this point may help.

    Weight Loss in February……………….. 0.6 Loss
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 lb GAIN

    Day 66 – 03/01 …..206.6…… Hopeful I’ll stay smart & ready as each day comes. I fit in 20 minutes of dancing last night when I got a burst of energy. It put my steps over 11,000. So grateful!
    Day 67 – 03/02 …..207.4…… Bouncy Bounce. Snacks with milk. Why can’t I be like a normal person and have a snack with a glass of milk and not balloon up so much? Gosh I miss being in my 20’s
    Day 68 – 03/03 …..207.0…… Better and very pleased because I did end up traveling yesterday afternoon until later last night. I needed a Home Depot for some returns and some remodel shopping. The crew took the day off for some personal business so my son & I took care of our business. I steered clear of Chinese because I struggled all last week over one dinner. Instead I opted for my son’s pick….Applebees. I tried something new, the prime rib sandwich. I also had 4 boneless honey-BBQ wings. I left the fries on the plate and drank water with lemon. Sandwich was delicious. So glad I kept my cool. Down nearly half of a pound when traveling is a record for me!
    Day 69 – 03/04 …..208.4…… Maybe that travel/restaurant lunch caught up with me afterall. I dunno. I also had a SEVERE glucose drop last night. I kept my cool pretty good. A bowl of cereal with milk very late night did not help my scale this morning, but it did fix the symptoms. Aiming for a well-balanced day today. Tomorrow is travel out-of-town for my appointment with attorney. Time to update my will. I haven’t made changes since my husband died 5 years ago. My children are all grown since I originally made my will which changes things. Also, with the recent sale of my two businesses, it really needs to be done. I will try to keep any luncheon choices reasonable. I am not off to a very good start on my search for Onederland. But it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. #fightingthegoodfight.

    Day 70 – 03/05 …..208.4…… Small quantities but bad choices. Another glucose drop last night. This one was the type that makes you feel drunk. Woozy, unsteady on feet. Strange foot to floor sensations. Clouded thinking and judgement. High fall risk, must hold on to things because of staggering. Not as fast coming on as the feeding frenzy kind but something that has to be dealt with. Very cloudy vision. Strange thinking. Drunk is the only way I can describe it. This shows how out of shape my diet is (when too low calorie or carb puts me in this state). My body doesn’t want the (healthy) change. I will take it slow. Traveling today to work on having my will & trust updated along with some other legal matters. Lunch will be out-of-town. Everything is challenging right now.
    Day 71 – 03/06 …..208.4…… Traveled to attorney appointment yesterday to begin the process of updating my will, trust, power-of-attorney and advanced directive. Now I have some homework to do before my next appointment on March 17th. I had lunch at a restaurant in that town. I ate half and boxed the rest up for my dinner. I kept it reasonable but my snacks late last night are something I’m not too proud of. Glucose stayed steady probably because of the snacks. I hope to keep today better and that the meal out does not show up in a day or two on the scale.
    Day 72 – 03/07 …..207.6……Yay! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am, especially after travel! Today will be takeout pizza. No, I am not self-sabotaging (this time). After the work crew leaves today, I will be having takeout with my children as we hold a family meeting in regards to my Will & Trust. It will be a difficult evening so I am already stressing and I didn’t sleep well last night. I will try to keep portion reasonable and get in some pacing steps & stairs today while the work crew are here.
    Day 73 – 03/08 …..208.2…… Pizza straight to the hips! I will be better today.
    Day 74 – 03/09 …..206.8…… Meals light. Snacks…..Meh. I can do better!
    Day 75 – 03/10 …..204.8…… What a shock on the scale! I actually had another drunken sugar drop last night which woke me up from sleeping at 4:30 am. This is quite surprising because there is this time period during the night, (it has a name bug my cancer brain fog is preventing me from remembering it) when a T2D has a pretty big raise in their glucose numbers at night. So walking up to such a drop was uncharacteristic. I dealt with it with a pop tart and milk and felt pretty good pretty quickly. Of course, I thought that would ruin my weigh-in this morning and I was quite surprised to not see a bad affect on the scale. I’ll remain grateful today and try to run with the ball. I will be traveling later this week, perhaps Friday, for more building supplies. I am going to try to save up some calories and stay reasonable like I have the past couple of trips.
    Day 76 – 03/11 …..206.2…… Two pounds overnight I suppose was not realistic and my body adjusted. Still down 0.6 from 2 days ago. TMI would help but daily is not a regular thing for me so this probably affected the scale today too. I had a good day yesterday with meals and I increased my steps. Happy overall to be seeing a downward trend. I’ve just got to keep fighting the good fight, like everyone else!
    Day 77 – 03/12 …..207.0…… Dinner out last night. Family emergency today.
    Day 78 – 03/13 …..207.2…… My daughter and grandchild (3 yr old rambunctious boy) decided to move back in last night. For how long, I don’t know. A family squabble that will not resolve easily. I foresee some back & forth going on but time will tell. Lots of cooking and small meals for my grandson. Eating and schedules will be different. I am even curious how this remodel can possibly work out. Everything up in the air right now, but I see more steps coming (which is good) and lots of nice time with my family. Just difficulties with the food planning and diets.
    Day 79 - 03/14 …..207.2…..
    Day 80 – 03/15 …..207.2……Not doing well on the diet with the houseful of people daily. Between family moving in and the renovation crew, my life is upside down! Doing my best here but I just don’t have the space, the energy or the privacy I need to cook multiple dinners, lunches, etc. I already cook 2 different ones per meal due to my son’s autism and eating disorders. I’m not going to throw my hands up. I will find the answers.
    Day 81 – 03/16 …..207.0…… Okey Dokey. A touch better and in the right direction! Traveling tomorrow back to the attorney office finishing up some more Will & Trust. Lunch will be out. I will try to be thoughtful in my selections. I'm a little depressed today that I will have to fight a good fight just to get back to my starting weight at the top of this challenge (before it ends). So, I suppose that is my new goal. Maybe next challenge I can do more than just tread water.
    Day 82 – 03/17 …..xxxxx…… DNW. I forgot during the hustle and bustle of the morning prior to my trip. Lunch was the best pizza I’ve ever had. I kept my portions low, but my oh my, the carbs! I hope the scale will be understanding.
    Day 83 – 03/18 …..207.4…… Not bad after a pizza luncheon and a lack of activity due to being on a long car ride there and back and a 2 hour sitting appointment. Tonight we will be having the high sodium corned beef for our St. Patty’s day dinner we couldn’t have yesterday. Pushing water today!
    Day 84 – 03/19 …..207.4…… Grateful for no gain (so far) from the dinner. My portions were reasonable. It was nice to share a special meal with others.
    Day 85 – 03/20 …..207.0…… I am grateful for this after two days of salty corned beef and all the fixings! Pushed water so bad that I was up all night peeing, but I am grateful to see a loss. I have a birthday party tomorrow for my DGS turning 2. I can’t turn down cake and icecream so I am going to try to be extra careful today and Monday. That’s my plan! My starting weight this challenge was 205.4 and that feels a million miles away from where I am now. I know, in reality it’s not, but at my pace, it may as well be. A couple of good days in a row, (after the party and now that the holiday is over) and I could possibly get back there. That would be a great mini-goal!
    Day 86 – 03/21 …..208.4…… WHAT???? Love cal junk yesterday. Not healthy but well within calorie range. No TMI/Potty so playing that game again! Frustrating but typical.
    Day 87 – 03/22 …..xxxxx……

    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 4.0
    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. 717 in the Green
    Day 55: Thurs, 2/18: 134.4 - Worried about our friends in Texas with this climate change weather whip. 911 in the Green
    Day 56: Fri, 2/19: 133.3 - New low. I have been working my tail off this entire week to try to mitigate my overage from Ribs consumption. I have a nice steak and prawns for tonight's dinner, so will definitely need to get a bunch of activity in before that. 493 in the Green
    Day 57: Sat, 2/20: 133.5 - Not too bad after my huge bacon wrapped beef tenderloin steak last night. Pizza and drinks tonight though...138 in the Green

    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".
    9th Week Actual Weight: 133.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 2681 - Not enough to lose a pound, but I had excess of that every other week so lost some weight

    Day 58: Sun, 2/21: 136.0 - Pizza, beer, and copious amounts of water after from the salty bacon/ham and stuff pizza yesterday. I will get lots of activity in today. 965 in the Green
    Day 59: Mon, 2/22: 136.9 - I really feel like this is temporary, I expected to see a drop this morning. 1007 in the Green
    Day 60: Tues, 2/23: 136.6 - Very active yesterday, had hoped to see a drop. Maybe tomorrow. 258 in the Green
    Day 61: Wed, 2/24: 135.5 - Meal prep is done. Going to get a bunch of small workouts in today here and there. 997 in the Green
    Day 62: Thurs, 2/25: 135.1 - 2 more weigh days left of this week.
    Day 63: Fri, 2/26: 135.1- Got up to another town for a public skating time slot yesterday. Hoping to see a nice number tomorrow. 956 in the Green
    Day 64: Sat, 2/27: 135.2 - I'm okay with this. 242 in the Green

    10th Week Goal Weight: 133.9 - seems ambitious, but after hitting 133.3 I feel like I can achieve it.
    10th Week Actual Weight: 135.2
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 5332, more than enough to lose a pound.

    Day 65: Sun, 2/28: DNW - up during the night, water, coffee, breakfast already consumed. 633 in the Green
    Day 66: Mon, 3/1: 136.0 - I will get on top of that. It takes 3 days for "bad" foods to show up on my scale. 653 in the Green.
    Day 67: Tues, 3/2: 135.0 - Okay, back close to last week's weights. I am going to try to stay "good" the rest of this week. 502 in the Green
    Day 68: Wed, 3/3: 133.0 - Super pleased to see this number again finally. 958 in the Green
    Day 69: Thurs, 3/4: 132.2 - Are all of those weeks when I had more than enough excess calories left over to "lose a pound" finally catching up? Pretty darned happy with this new low. 46 in the Green
    Day 70: Fri, 3/5: 134.1 - So easy to put it on, hard to get it off. Food choices weren't great yesterday. MFP went from saying 121 in 5 weeks to 133 in 5 weeks. Groan. 620 in the Green
    Day 71: Sat, 3/6: 134.9 - Had lots of activity yesterday and today will be ice skating. Expected a lower number today, maybe tomorrow. 634 in the Green

    11th Week Goal Weight: 134.0
    11th Week Actual Weight: 134.9
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 4046 - enough to lose a pound.

    Day 72: Sun, 3/7: 133.8 - Day off, I will up my activity and prep meals for the week. 813 in the Green
    Day 73: Mon, 3/8: 134.7 - Saturday's food choices kicking in? 628 in the Green
    Day 74: Tues, 3/9: 134.7 - Expected a drop this morning, but nope. 1119 in the Green
    Day 75: Wed, 3/10: 133.3 - My calorie burn was through the roof yesterday, because on top of my regular workouts and walking I got a very good ice skate in which burns a ton. 883 in the Green
    Day 76: Thurs, 3/11: 133.4 - Only 23 days left of this 100!! 543 in the Green
    Day 77: Fri, 3/12: 133.7 - I have been a bit more indulgent this week. Nothing crazy, but I need to limit that a bit more. 888 in the Green
    Day 78: Sat, 3/13: 134.1 - I was all over the place this week. 727 in the green

    12th Week Goal Weight: 132.2 (because I hit that last week)
    12th Week Actual Weight: 134.1
    Excess Calories left over in the MFP tracker (Green, deficit): 5651 - More than enough to lose a pound

    Day 79: Sun, 3/14: 134.3 - Up even more. I can't let this get away from me, too hard fought. 1033 in the Green
    Day 80: Mon, 3/15: 134.2 - Well, if I can drop that .1 each day this week I will be back to last week's average. 1069 in the Green
    Day 81: Tues, 3/16: 133.8 - Better, need to keep it up. 625 in the Green
    Day 82: Wed, 3/17: 132.8!! Yippee!! Best not to celebrate and undo it : - ) 303 in the Green
    Day 83: Thurs, 3/18: 132.4 - I did celebrate my new low from yesterday with yummy food, but kept it within my calorie range. It could catch up with me in a few days. 873 in the Green
    Day 84: Fri, 3/19: 133.0 - Bit of an upward fluctuation after some lower weight days, but happy with it. There is some bonus indoor ice skating every day for 9 days starting on Monday, and it will be the last for the year. They didn't open in my town this year and the Kinnettes stood up and rented the facility for over March break to offer it. Perfect timing for our last days of the 100, expecting to lean out. Skating burns major calories, is super fun, and great for the mental/emotional health. Very excited! 474 in the Green
    Day 85: Sat, 3/20: 133.0 - On to our final 15 days. 570 in the Green

    13th Week Goal Weight: 133.3
    13th Week Actual Weight: 133.0
    Excess Calories left over in the Green (Deficit) - 4947 - More than enough to lose a pound.

    Day 86: Sun, 3/21: 133.5 - Up by .5 but 6 days in a row of ice skating starts tomorrow, so I hope to melt that off + more doing something so fun.

    I did a major check-in today, measurements and calculators.

    I will have been on this thread for 500 days, and with some of you on it for all of it!

    There was talk of loose skin.
    Last year I lost 12 pounds and didn't have any.
    This year I lost a whopping 20 pounds!! and do have it. There should be some good muscles under there somewhere though ; - )

    In this past year:
    Waist: 34 to 31 – Lost 3 inches
    Hips: 40 – 35.25 – Lost 4.75 inches
    Thigh: 20.5 to 18.5 – Lost 2 inches
    Under bust: 33.5 to 32 – Lost 1.5 – At ribcage now thanks to Fitness Marshall, don’t expect this to change much further
    Upper Arm: 11.8 to 11 sinc last September no change – Not even an inch lost Lost .8
    Calf: 14.3 to 13.5 pretty much the same since September Lost .8 in the year
    Bust: 42 to 38, this has been exactly the same since September – Lost 4 inches in the year
    Weight: 154.4 to 133.5 – Lost 20.9

    Kind of pumped. I did my charts:

    Into the Average Zone with this one: - )
    582utqi0269l.png

    Just now squeaked into the average zone on this one:

    This one is what I base my wanting to have 500 "in the Green" from:

    And my ideal weight, 110-115:

    Here is the link from that one if anyone wants to try it:

    https://www.calculator.net/ideal-weight-calculator.html?ctype=standard&cage=60&csex=f&cheightfeet=5&cheightinch=2&cheightmeter=180&printit=0&x=79&y=18

    I changed my eating/lifestyle habits a couple of years ago.

    Thank you all who have been there for me when I am frustrated at not losing anything.

    I have a Ribs day coming up this Friday, but I will have ice skated 5 days in a row by then and will try to be gentle on myself if I gain 3 pounds from that (which I usually do).

    Being here with y'all, checking in daily, meal prep, measuring everything, logging meticulously, pre-logging sometimes a few days in advance, keeping active, limiting my splurges, and having that deficit every day (but one) over the past year has been my new life. I eat everything still, only smaller amounts or trade-offs, always trying to keep the metabolism/furnace going. I have also added more fibre to my diet once I realized that it was only at 6%.
    I eat more berries, yams, etc. I am so lucky to make a big garden each year and I freeze so much of it.
    Some of you saw my beets from November, took out a slice to have with dinner last night, it is shaped like a heart : - ) I have a bunch more of those in the freezer still.
    @deepwoodslady Now those will clean you out with the TMI

    I had high blood pressure when this all began, and the doctor told me to lose weight.
    I love being leaner, but as you can see from the charts I have 20 pounds more to go over the next couple of years.
    Happy to be on this journey. Happy today to be into a Normal range, from Obese to Overweight to Normal : - )

    Thanks again @Miyoka_Tata for keeping us going.

    @dawnbgethealthy

    Congratulations for reaching a healthy BMI. Those numbers change in such small increments so it's Wonderful that you have reached the normal range. All your numbers are looking so fantastic and I know how hard you have worked for them. You are so inspiring......

    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

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

    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…..2.4 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 …..204.8….. Good diet yesterday but very very little movement. On the computer most of the day with tax prep. Today is day 3 with no TMI so I think that contributes. Still no word of vaccine in my little town. They are still on the very first group here – Group 1A for medical personnel. We don’t have many medical personnel in our town so it is a lack of the vaccine itself. I just want to get this over with! I am group 1C due to diabetes and cancer remission.
    Day 57 – 02/20 …..205.0…..
    Day 58 – 02/21 …..205.0….. Grateful to have the same numbers glaring at me from the scale. My calories were okay yesterday but OMGosh on the choices I made. Horrid, Horrid little girl I was! Absolutely nothing fueling or replenishing about what I stuck in my pie-hole. That makes me feel gluttonous and (almost) childlike. I was a limited thinker yesterday. Today I will ponder before I put my greedy little fingers upon anything!
    Day 59 – 02/22 …..207.2….. I had a bowl of ice cream instead of lunch. I guess my body knows the difference and punished me. Nutrition matters.
    Day 60 – 02/23 …..207.2…… I refuse to spend 100 days making more better choices than not, move movement than not, more sacrifices than not and end up in a higher weight than when I started! I am expecting Chinese tonight (and leftovers tomorrow) for dinner. Pushing water. Skipping lunch. Diet alone isn’t doing it though. I need more movement and there is absolutely zero privacy here during this remodel. (And more remodeling coming.) I’m so tired at night but I have to fit something in!
    Day 61 – 02/24 .….207.5…… Chinese leftovers today so I don’t expect to see anything very nice or friendly on the scale tomorrow.
    Day 62 – 02/25 …..207.5…… Thankful that the leftovers didn’t kill my scales or my spirit. Using the stairs………..
    Day 63 – 02/26 …..207.2…… Yay, I put that Chinese behind me (which was a tasty treat) and had a low calorie dinner yesterday. I walked the steps but found I could only do it once at a time (very steep and I am out of shape). That is okay because I can just do it more often and build up my strength. Love the idea!
    Day 64 – 02/27 …..207.6…… Frustrated. It was the homemade sour dough bread from the Amish with butter. I should not have went back for that 2nd piece later last night. Extra stairs today!
    Day 65 – 02/28 …..207.0…… Although this was a nice overnight drop, I am up 1.6 lbs since the start of this challenge. My main goal now is just to get back to starting weight by the end. It sounds easy, but based on my stats, it won’t be. Focusing on this shorter term goal at this point may help.

    Weight Loss in February……………….. 0.6 Loss
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 lb GAIN

    Day 66 – 03/01 …..206.6…… Hopeful I’ll stay smart & ready as each day comes. I fit in 20 minutes of dancing last night when I got a burst of energy. It put my steps over 11,000. So grateful!
    Day 67 – 03/02 …..207.4…… Bouncy Bounce. Snacks with milk. Why can’t I be like a normal person and have a snack with a glass of milk and not balloon up so much? Gosh I miss being in my 20’s
    Day 68 – 03/03 …..207.0…… Better and very pleased because I did end up traveling yesterday afternoon until later last night. I needed a Home Depot for some returns and some remodel shopping. The crew took the day off for some personal business so my son & I took care of our business. I steered clear of Chinese because I struggled all last week over one dinner. Instead I opted for my son’s pick….Applebees. I tried something new, the prime rib sandwich. I also had 4 boneless honey-BBQ wings. I left the fries on the plate and drank water with lemon. Sandwich was delicious. So glad I kept my cool. Down nearly half of a pound when traveling is a record for me!
    Day 69 – 03/04 …..208.4…… Maybe that travel/restaurant lunch caught up with me afterall. I dunno. I also had a SEVERE glucose drop last night. I kept my cool pretty good. A bowl of cereal with milk very late night did not help my scale this morning, but it did fix the symptoms. Aiming for a well-balanced day today. Tomorrow is travel out-of-town for my appointment with attorney. Time to update my will. I haven’t made changes since my husband died 5 years ago. My children are all grown since I originally made my will which changes things. Also, with the recent sale of my two businesses, it really needs to be done. I will try to keep any luncheon choices reasonable. I am not off to a very good start on my search for Onederland. But it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. #fightingthegoodfight.

    Day 70 – 03/05 …..208.4…… Small quantities but bad choices. Another glucose drop last night. This one was the type that makes you feel drunk. Woozy, unsteady on feet. Strange foot to floor sensations. Clouded thinking and judgement. High fall risk, must hold on to things because of staggering. Not as fast coming on as the feeding frenzy kind but something that has to be dealt with. Very cloudy vision. Strange thinking. Drunk is the only way I can describe it. This shows how out of shape my diet is (when too low calorie or carb puts me in this state). My body doesn’t want the (healthy) change. I will take it slow. Traveling today to work on having my will & trust updated along with some other legal matters. Lunch will be out-of-town. Everything is challenging right now.
    Day 71 – 03/06 …..208.4…… Traveled to attorney appointment yesterday to begin the process of updating my will, trust, power-of-attorney and advanced directive. Now I have some homework to do before my next appointment on March 17th. I had lunch at a restaurant in that town. I ate half and boxed the rest up for my dinner. I kept it reasonable but my snacks late last night are something I’m not too proud of. Glucose stayed steady probably because of the snacks. I hope to keep today better and that the meal out does not show up in a day or two on the scale.
    Day 72 – 03/07 …..207.6……Yay! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am, especially after travel! Today will be takeout pizza. No, I am not self-sabotaging (this time). After the work crew leaves today, I will be having takeout with my children as we hold a family meeting in regards to my Will & Trust. It will be a difficult evening so I am already stressing and I didn’t sleep well last night. I will try to keep portion reasonable and get in some pacing steps & stairs today while the work crew are here.
    Day 73 – 03/08 …..208.2…… Pizza straight to the hips! I will be better today.
    Day 74 – 03/09 …..206.8…… Meals light. Snacks…..Meh. I can do better!
    Day 75 – 03/10 …..204.8…… What a shock on the scale! I actually had another drunken sugar drop last night which woke me up from sleeping at 4:30 am. This is quite surprising because there is this time period during the night, (it has a name bug my cancer brain fog is preventing me from remembering it) when a T2D has a pretty big raise in their glucose numbers at night. So walking up to such a drop was uncharacteristic. I dealt with it with a pop tart and milk and felt pretty good pretty quickly. Of course, I thought that would ruin my weigh-in this morning and I was quite surprised to not see a bad affect on the scale. I’ll remain grateful today and try to run with the ball. I will be traveling later this week, perhaps Friday, for more building supplies. I am going to try to save up some calories and stay reasonable like I have the past couple of trips.
    Day 76 – 03/11 …..206.2…… Two pounds overnight I suppose was not realistic and my body adjusted. Still down 0.6 from 2 days ago. TMI would help but daily is not a regular thing for me so this probably affected the scale today too. I had a good day yesterday with meals and I increased my steps. Happy overall to be seeing a downward trend. I’ve just got to keep fighting the good fight, like everyone else!
    Day 77 – 03/12 …..207.0…… Dinner out last night. Family emergency today.
    Day 78 – 03/13 …..207.2…… My daughter and grandchild (3 yr old rambunctious boy) decided to move back in last night. For how long, I don’t know. A family squabble that will not resolve easily. I foresee some back & forth going on but time will tell. Lots of cooking and small meals for my grandson. Eating and schedules will be different. I am even curious how this remodel can possibly work out. Everything up in the air right now, but I see more steps coming (which is good) and lots of nice time with my family. Just difficulties with the food planning and diets.
    Day 79 - 03/14 …..207.2…..
    Day 80 – 03/15 …..207.2……Not doing well on the diet with the houseful of people daily. Between family moving in and the renovation crew, my life is upside down! Doing my best here but I just don’t have the space, the energy or the privacy I need to cook multiple dinners, lunches, etc. I already cook 2 different ones per meal due to my son’s autism and eating disorders. I’m not going to throw my hands up. I will find the answers.
    Day 81 – 03/16 …..207.0…… Okey Dokey. A touch better and in the right direction! Traveling tomorrow back to the attorney office finishing up some more Will & Trust. Lunch will be out. I will try to be thoughtful in my selections. I'm a little depressed today that I will have to fight a good fight just to get back to my starting weight at the top of this challenge (before it ends). So, I suppose that is my new goal. Maybe next challenge I can do more than just tread water.
    Day 82 – 03/17 …..xxxxx…… DNW. I forgot during the hustle and bustle of the morning prior to my trip. Lunch was the best pizza I’ve ever had. I kept my portions low, but my oh my, the carbs! I hope the scale will be understanding.
    Day 83 – 03/18 …..207.4…… Not bad after a pizza luncheon and a lack of activity due to being on a long car ride there and back and a 2 hour sitting appointment. Tonight we will be having the high sodium corned beef for our St. Patty’s day dinner we couldn’t have yesterday. Pushing water today!
    Day 84 – 03/19 …..207.4…… Grateful for no gain (so far) from the dinner. My portions were reasonable. It was nice to share a special meal with others.
    Day 85 – 03/20 …..207.0…… I am grateful for this after two days of salty corned beef and all the fixings! Pushed water so bad that I was up all night peeing, but I am grateful to see a loss. I have a birthday party tomorrow for my DGS turning 2. I can’t turn down cake and icecream so I am going to try to be extra careful today and Monday. That’s my plan! My starting weight this challenge was 205.4 and that feels a million miles away from where I am now. I know, in reality it’s not, but at my pace, it may as well be. A couple of good days in a row, (after the party and now that the holiday is over) and I could possibly get back there. That would be a great mini-goal!
    Day 86 – 03/21 …..208.4…… WHAT???? Love cal junk yesterday. Not healthy but well within calorie range. No TMI/Potty so playing that game again! Frustrating but typical.
    Day 87 – 03/22 …..207.4…… Left, Right and Upside Down. The birthday party was really nice but filled with junky food and treats so I’m a bit surprised at this drop. I’ll have to keep an eye on this over the coming days.
    Day 88 – 03/23 …..xxxxx……

    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 4.0
    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. 717 in the Green
    Day 55: Thurs, 2/18: 134.4 - Worried about our friends in Texas with this climate change weather whip. 911 in the Green
    Day 56: Fri, 2/19: 133.3 - New low. I have been working my tail off this entire week to try to mitigate my overage from Ribs consumption. I have a nice steak and prawns for tonight's dinner, so will definitely need to get a bunch of activity in before that. 493 in the Green
    Day 57: Sat, 2/20: 133.5 - Not too bad after my huge bacon wrapped beef tenderloin steak last night. Pizza and drinks tonight though...138 in the Green

    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".
    9th Week Actual Weight: 133.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 2681 - Not enough to lose a pound, but I had excess of that every other week so lost some weight

    Day 58: Sun, 2/21: 136.0 - Pizza, beer, and copious amounts of water after from the salty bacon/ham and stuff pizza yesterday. I will get lots of activity in today. 965 in the Green
    Day 59: Mon, 2/22: 136.9 - I really feel like this is temporary, I expected to see a drop this morning. 1007 in the Green
    Day 60: Tues, 2/23: 136.6 - Very active yesterday, had hoped to see a drop. Maybe tomorrow. 258 in the Green
    Day 61: Wed, 2/24: 135.5 - Meal prep is done. Going to get a bunch of small workouts in today here and there. 997 in the Green
    Day 62: Thurs, 2/25: 135.1 - 2 more weigh days left of this week.
    Day 63: Fri, 2/26: 135.1- Got up to another town for a public skating time slot yesterday. Hoping to see a nice number tomorrow. 956 in the Green
    Day 64: Sat, 2/27: 135.2 - I'm okay with this. 242 in the Green

    10th Week Goal Weight: 133.9 - seems ambitious, but after hitting 133.3 I feel like I can achieve it.
    10th Week Actual Weight: 135.2
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 5332, more than enough to lose a pound.

    Day 65: Sun, 2/28: DNW - up during the night, water, coffee, breakfast already consumed. 633 in the Green
    Day 66: Mon, 3/1: 136.0 - I will get on top of that. It takes 3 days for "bad" foods to show up on my scale. 653 in the Green.
    Day 67: Tues, 3/2: 135.0 - Okay, back close to last week's weights. I am going to try to stay "good" the rest of this week. 502 in the Green
    Day 68: Wed, 3/3: 133.0 - Super pleased to see this number again finally. 958 in the Green
    Day 69: Thurs, 3/4: 132.2 - Are all of those weeks when I had more than enough excess calories left over to "lose a pound" finally catching up? Pretty darned happy with this new low. 46 in the Green
    Day 70: Fri, 3/5: 134.1 - So easy to put it on, hard to get it off. Food choices weren't great yesterday. MFP went from saying 121 in 5 weeks to 133 in 5 weeks. Groan. 620 in the Green
    Day 71: Sat, 3/6: 134.9 - Had lots of activity yesterday and today will be ice skating. Expected a lower number today, maybe tomorrow. 634 in the Green

    11th Week Goal Weight: 134.0
    11th Week Actual Weight: 134.9
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 4046 - enough to lose a pound.

    Day 72: Sun, 3/7: 133.8 - Day off, I will up my activity and prep meals for the week. 813 in the Green
    Day 73: Mon, 3/8: 134.7 - Saturday's food choices kicking in? 628 in the Green
    Day 74: Tues, 3/9: 134.7 - Expected a drop this morning, but nope. 1119 in the Green
    Day 75: Wed, 3/10: 133.3 - My calorie burn was through the roof yesterday, because on top of my regular workouts and walking I got a very good ice skate in which burns a ton. 883 in the Green
    Day 76: Thurs, 3/11: 133.4 - Only 23 days left of this 100!! 543 in the Green
    Day 77: Fri, 3/12: 133.7 - I have been a bit more indulgent this week. Nothing crazy, but I need to limit that a bit more. 888 in the Green
    Day 78: Sat, 3/13: 134.1 - I was all over the place this week. 727 in the green

    12th Week Goal Weight: 132.2 (because I hit that last week)
    12th Week Actual Weight: 134.1
    Excess Calories left over in the MFP tracker (Green, deficit): 5651 - More than enough to lose a pound

    Day 79: Sun, 3/14: 134.3 - Up even more. I can't let this get away from me, too hard fought. 1033 in the Green
    Day 80: Mon, 3/15: 134.2 - Well, if I can drop that .1 each day this week I will be back to last week's average. 1069 in the Green
    Day 81: Tues, 3/16: 133.8 - Better, need to keep it up. 625 in the Green
    Day 82: Wed, 3/17: 132.8!! Yippee!! Best not to celebrate and undo it : - ) 303 in the Green
    Day 83: Thurs, 3/18: 132.4 - I did celebrate my new low from yesterday with yummy food, but kept it within my calorie range. It could catch up with me in a few days. 873 in the Green
    Day 84: Fri, 3/19: 133.0 - Bit of an upward fluctuation after some lower weight days, but happy with it. There is some bonus indoor ice skating every day for 9 days starting on Monday, and it will be the last for the year. They didn't open in my town this year and the Kinnettes stood up and rented the facility for over March break to offer it. Perfect timing for our last days of the 100, expecting to lean out. Skating burns major calories, is super fun, and great for the mental/emotional health. Very excited! 474 in the Green
    Day 85: Sat, 3/20: 133.0 - On to our final 15 days. 570 in the Green

    13th Week Goal Weight: 133.3
    13th Week Actual Weight: 133.0
    Excess Calories left over in the Green (Deficit) - 4947 - More than enough to lose a pound.

    Day 86: Sun, 3/21: 133.5 - Up by .5 but 6 days in a row of ice skating starts tomorrow, so I hope to melt that off + more doing something so fun. 1038 in the Green
    Day 87: Mon, 3/22: 131.7 - Quite a drop. I had touched the 132s last week and 2 weeks before, first time seeing anything in the 131s! If I have touched it once I know that I can get back to it even if it fluctuates from here. I normally get up at 5am, and slept until 9am today, so that has probably a lot to do with the lower number.

    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 4.0
    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. 717 in the Green
    Day 55: Thurs, 2/18: 134.4 - Worried about our friends in Texas with this climate change weather whip. 911 in the Green
    Day 56: Fri, 2/19: 133.3 - New low. I have been working my tail off this entire week to try to mitigate my overage from Ribs consumption. I have a nice steak and prawns for tonight's dinner, so will definitely need to get a bunch of activity in before that. 493 in the Green
    Day 57: Sat, 2/20: 133.5 - Not too bad after my huge bacon wrapped beef tenderloin steak last night. Pizza and drinks tonight though...138 in the Green

    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".
    9th Week Actual Weight: 133.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 2681 - Not enough to lose a pound, but I had excess of that every other week so lost some weight

    Day 58: Sun, 2/21: 136.0 - Pizza, beer, and copious amounts of water after from the salty bacon/ham and stuff pizza yesterday. I will get lots of activity in today. 965 in the Green
    Day 59: Mon, 2/22: 136.9 - I really feel like this is temporary, I expected to see a drop this morning. 1007 in the Green
    Day 60: Tues, 2/23: 136.6 - Very active yesterday, had hoped to see a drop. Maybe tomorrow. 258 in the Green
    Day 61: Wed, 2/24: 135.5 - Meal prep is done. Going to get a bunch of small workouts in today here and there. 997 in the Green
    Day 62: Thurs, 2/25: 135.1 - 2 more weigh days left of this week.
    Day 63: Fri, 2/26: 135.1- Got up to another town for a public skating time slot yesterday. Hoping to see a nice number tomorrow. 956 in the Green
    Day 64: Sat, 2/27: 135.2 - I'm okay with this. 242 in the Green

    10th Week Goal Weight: 133.9 - seems ambitious, but after hitting 133.3 I feel like I can achieve it.
    10th Week Actual Weight: 135.2
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 5332, more than enough to lose a pound.

    Day 65: Sun, 2/28: DNW - up during the night, water, coffee, breakfast already consumed. 633 in the Green
    Day 66: Mon, 3/1: 136.0 - I will get on top of that. It takes 3 days for "bad" foods to show up on my scale. 653 in the Green.
    Day 67: Tues, 3/2: 135.0 - Okay, back close to last week's weights. I am going to try to stay "good" the rest of this week. 502 in the Green
    Day 68: Wed, 3/3: 133.0 - Super pleased to see this number again finally. 958 in the Green
    Day 69: Thurs, 3/4: 132.2 - Are all of those weeks when I had more than enough excess calories left over to "lose a pound" finally catching up? Pretty darned happy with this new low. 46 in the Green
    Day 70: Fri, 3/5: 134.1 - So easy to put it on, hard to get it off. Food choices weren't great yesterday. MFP went from saying 121 in 5 weeks to 133 in 5 weeks. Groan. 620 in the Green
    Day 71: Sat, 3/6: 134.9 - Had lots of activity yesterday and today will be ice skating. Expected a lower number today, maybe tomorrow. 634 in the Green

    11th Week Goal Weight: 134.0
    11th Week Actual Weight: 134.9
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 4046 - enough to lose a pound.

    Day 72: Sun, 3/7: 133.8 - Day off, I will up my activity and prep meals for the week. 813 in the Green
    Day 73: Mon, 3/8: 134.7 - Saturday's food choices kicking in? 628 in the Green
    Day 74: Tues, 3/9: 134.7 - Expected a drop this morning, but nope. 1119 in the Green
    Day 75: Wed, 3/10: 133.3 - My calorie burn was through the roof yesterday, because on top of my regular workouts and walking I got a very good ice skate in which burns a ton. 883 in the Green
    Day 76: Thurs, 3/11: 133.4 - Only 23 days left of this 100!! 543 in the Green
    Day 77: Fri, 3/12: 133.7 - I have been a bit more indulgent this week. Nothing crazy, but I need to limit that a bit more. 888 in the Green
    Day 78: Sat, 3/13: 134.1 - I was all over the place this week. 727 in the green

    12th Week Goal Weight: 132.2 (because I hit that last week)
    12th Week Actual Weight: 134.1
    Excess Calories left over in the MFP tracker (Green, deficit): 5651 - More than enough to lose a pound

    Day 79: Sun, 3/14: 134.3 - Up even more. I can't let this get away from me, too hard fought. 1033 in the Green
    Day 80: Mon, 3/15: 134.2 - Well, if I can drop that .1 each day this week I will be back to last week's average. 1069 in the Green
    Day 81: Tues, 3/16: 133.8 - Better, need to keep it up. 625 in the Green
    Day 82: Wed, 3/17: 132.8!! Yippee!! Best not to celebrate and undo it : - ) 303 in the Green
    Day 83: Thurs, 3/18: 132.4 - I did celebrate my new low from yesterday with yummy food, but kept it within my calorie range. It could catch up with me in a few days. 873 in the Green
    Day 84: Fri, 3/19: 133.0 - Bit of an upward fluctuation after some lower weight days, but happy with it. There is some bonus indoor ice skating every day for 9 days starting on Monday, and it will be the last for the year. They didn't open in my town this year and the Kinnettes stood up and rented the facility for over March break to offer it. Perfect timing for our last days of the 100, expecting to lean out. Skating burns major calories, is super fun, and great for the mental/emotional health. Very excited! 474 in the Green
    Day 85: Sat, 3/20: 133.0 - On to our final 15 days. 570 in the Green

    13th Week Goal Weight: 133.3
    13th Week Actual Weight: 133.0
    Excess Calories left over in the Green (Deficit) - 4947 - More than enough to lose a pound.

    Day 86: Sun, 3/21: 133.5 - Up by .5 but 6 days in a row of ice skating starts tomorrow, so I hope to melt that off + more doing something so fun. 1038 in the Green
    Day 87: Mon, 3/22: 131.7 - Quite a drop. I had touched the 132s last week and 2 weeks before, first time seeing anything in the 131s! If I have touched it once I know that I can get back to it even if it fluctuates from here. I normally get up at 5am, and slept until 9am today, so that has probably a lot to do with the lower number. 809 in the Green
    Day 88: Tues, 3/23: 132.6 - Ribs some time this week and a close friend's birthday on sunday coming up, it would be nice to have a cushion. I already have limited Ribs to once per month, but I think that this time I am going to try have only 1/2 of a rack so that I don't have to "pay" for it for so much. Such little meat on 4 or 5 bones, but so fatty and very high in calorie.

    Day 81: Tue, 3/16: 152.6 This is probably more accurate since yesterday’s weight was too low from not eating dinner the night before.

    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…..2.4 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 …..204.8….. Good diet yesterday but very very little movement. On the computer most of the day with tax prep. Today is day 3 with no TMI so I think that contributes. Still no word of vaccine in my little town. They are still on the very first group here – Group 1A for medical personnel. We don’t have many medical personnel in our town so it is a lack of the vaccine itself. I just want to get this over with! I am group 1C due to diabetes and cancer remission.
    Day 57 – 02/20 …..205.0…..
    Day 58 – 02/21 …..205.0….. Grateful to have the same numbers glaring at me from the scale. My calories were okay yesterday but OMGosh on the choices I made. Horrid, Horrid little girl I was! Absolutely nothing fueling or replenishing about what I stuck in my pie-hole. That makes me feel gluttonous and (almost) childlike. I was a limited thinker yesterday. Today I will ponder before I put my greedy little fingers upon anything!
    Day 59 – 02/22 …..207.2….. I had a bowl of ice cream instead of lunch. I guess my body knows the difference and punished me. Nutrition matters.
    Day 60 – 02/23 …..207.2…… I refuse to spend 100 days making more better choices than not, move movement than not, more sacrifices than not and end up in a higher weight than when I started! I am expecting Chinese tonight (and leftovers tomorrow) for dinner. Pushing water. Skipping lunch. Diet alone isn’t doing it though. I need more movement and there is absolutely zero privacy here during this remodel. (And more remodeling coming.) I’m so tired at night but I have to fit something in!
    Day 61 – 02/24 .….207.5…… Chinese leftovers today so I don’t expect to see anything very nice or friendly on the scale tomorrow.
    Day 62 – 02/25 …..207.5…… Thankful that the leftovers didn’t kill my scales or my spirit. Using the stairs………..
    Day 63 – 02/26 …..207.2…… Yay, I put that Chinese behind me (which was a tasty treat) and had a low calorie dinner yesterday. I walked the steps but found I could only do it once at a time (very steep and I am out of shape). That is okay because I can just do it more often and build up my strength. Love the idea!
    Day 64 – 02/27 …..207.6…… Frustrated. It was the homemade sour dough bread from the Amish with butter. I should not have went back for that 2nd piece later last night. Extra stairs today!
    Day 65 – 02/28 …..207.0…… Although this was a nice overnight drop, I am up 1.6 lbs since the start of this challenge. My main goal now is just to get back to starting weight by the end. It sounds easy, but based on my stats, it won’t be. Focusing on this shorter term goal at this point may help.

    Weight Loss in February……………….. 0.6 Loss
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 lb GAIN

    Day 66 – 03/01 …..206.6…… Hopeful I’ll stay smart & ready as each day comes. I fit in 20 minutes of dancing last night when I got a burst of energy. It put my steps over 11,000. So grateful!
    Day 67 – 03/02 …..207.4…… Bouncy Bounce. Snacks with milk. Why can’t I be like a normal person and have a snack with a glass of milk and not balloon up so much? Gosh I miss being in my 20’s
    Day 68 – 03/03 …..207.0…… Better and very pleased because I did end up traveling yesterday afternoon until later last night. I needed a Home Depot for some returns and some remodel shopping. The crew took the day off for some personal business so my son & I took care of our business. I steered clear of Chinese because I struggled all last week over one dinner. Instead I opted for my son’s pick….Applebees. I tried something new, the prime rib sandwich. I also had 4 boneless honey-BBQ wings. I left the fries on the plate and drank water with lemon. Sandwich was delicious. So glad I kept my cool. Down nearly half of a pound when traveling is a record for me!
    Day 69 – 03/04 …..208.4…… Maybe that travel/restaurant lunch caught up with me afterall. I dunno. I also had a SEVERE glucose drop last night. I kept my cool pretty good. A bowl of cereal with milk very late night did not help my scale this morning, but it did fix the symptoms. Aiming for a well-balanced day today. Tomorrow is travel out-of-town for my appointment with attorney. Time to update my will. I haven’t made changes since my husband died 5 years ago. My children are all grown since I originally made my will which changes things. Also, with the recent sale of my two businesses, it really needs to be done. I will try to keep any luncheon choices reasonable. I am not off to a very good start on my search for Onederland. But it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. #fightingthegoodfight.

    Day 70 – 03/05 …..208.4…… Small quantities but bad choices. Another glucose drop last night. This one was the type that makes you feel drunk. Woozy, unsteady on feet. Strange foot to floor sensations. Clouded thinking and judgement. High fall risk, must hold on to things because of staggering. Not as fast coming on as the feeding frenzy kind but something that has to be dealt with. Very cloudy vision. Strange thinking. Drunk is the only way I can describe it. This shows how out of shape my diet is (when too low calorie or carb puts me in this state). My body doesn’t want the (healthy) change. I will take it slow. Traveling today to work on having my will & trust updated along with some other legal matters. Lunch will be out-of-town. Everything is challenging right now.
    Day 71 – 03/06 …..208.4…… Traveled to attorney appointment yesterday to begin the process of updating my will, trust, power-of-attorney and advanced directive. Now I have some homework to do before my next appointment on March 17th. I had lunch at a restaurant in that town. I ate half and boxed the rest up for my dinner. I kept it reasonable but my snacks late last night are something I’m not too proud of. Glucose stayed steady probably because of the snacks. I hope to keep today better and that the meal out does not show up in a day or two on the scale.
    Day 72 – 03/07 …..207.6……Yay! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am, especially after travel! Today will be takeout pizza. No, I am not self-sabotaging (this time). After the work crew leaves today, I will be having takeout with my children as we hold a family meeting in regards to my Will & Trust. It will be a difficult evening so I am already stressing and I didn’t sleep well last night. I will try to keep portion reasonable and get in some pacing steps & stairs today while the work crew are here.
    Day 73 – 03/08 …..208.2…… Pizza straight to the hips! I will be better today.
    Day 74 – 03/09 …..206.8…… Meals light. Snacks…..Meh. I can do better!
    Day 75 – 03/10 …..204.8…… What a shock on the scale! I actually had another drunken sugar drop last night which woke me up from sleeping at 4:30 am. This is quite surprising because there is this time period during the night, (it has a name bug my cancer brain fog is preventing me from remembering it) when a T2D has a pretty big raise in their glucose numbers at night. So walking up to such a drop was uncharacteristic. I dealt with it with a pop tart and milk and felt pretty good pretty quickly. Of course, I thought that would ruin my weigh-in this morning and I was quite surprised to not see a bad affect on the scale. I’ll remain grateful today and try to run with the ball. I will be traveling later this week, perhaps Friday, for more building supplies. I am going to try to save up some calories and stay reasonable like I have the past couple of trips.
    Day 76 – 03/11 …..206.2…… Two pounds overnight I suppose was not realistic and my body adjusted. Still down 0.6 from 2 days ago. TMI would help but daily is not a regular thing for me so this probably affected the scale today too. I had a good day yesterday with meals and I increased my steps. Happy overall to be seeing a downward trend. I’ve just got to keep fighting the good fight, like everyone else!
    Day 77 – 03/12 …..207.0…… Dinner out last night. Family emergency today.
    Day 78 – 03/13 …..207.2…… My daughter and grandchild (3 yr old rambunctious boy) decided to move back in last night. For how long, I don’t know. A family squabble that will not resolve easily. I foresee some back & forth going on but time will tell. Lots of cooking and small meals for my grandson. Eating and schedules will be different. I am even curious how this remodel can possibly work out. Everything up in the air right now, but I see more steps coming (which is good) and lots of nice time with my family. Just difficulties with the food planning and diets.
    Day 79 - 03/14 …..207.2…..
    Day 80 – 03/15 …..207.2……Not doing well on the diet with the houseful of people daily. Between family moving in and the renovation crew, my life is upside down! Doing my best here but I just don’t have the space, the energy or the privacy I need to cook multiple dinners, lunches, etc. I already cook 2 different ones per meal due to my son’s autism and eating disorders. I’m not going to throw my hands up. I will find the answers.
    Day 81 – 03/16 …..207.0…… Okey Dokey. A touch better and in the right direction! Traveling tomorrow back to the attorney office finishing up some more Will & Trust. Lunch will be out. I will try to be thoughtful in my selections. I'm a little depressed today that I will have to fight a good fight just to get back to my starting weight at the top of this challenge (before it ends). So, I suppose that is my new goal. Maybe next challenge I can do more than just tread water.
    Day 82 – 03/17 …..xxxxx…… DNW. I forgot during the hustle and bustle of the morning prior to my trip. Lunch was the best pizza I’ve ever had. I kept my portions low, but my oh my, the carbs! I hope the scale will be understanding.
    Day 83 – 03/18 …..207.4…… Not bad after a pizza luncheon and a lack of activity due to being on a long car ride there and back and a 2 hour sitting appointment. Tonight we will be having the high sodium corned beef for our St. Patty’s day dinner we couldn’t have yesterday. Pushing water today!
    Day 84 – 03/19 …..207.4…… Grateful for no gain (so far) from the dinner. My portions were reasonable. It was nice to share a special meal with others.
    Day 85 – 03/20 …..207.0…… I am grateful for this after two days of salty corned beef and all the fixings! Pushed water so bad that I was up all night peeing, but I am grateful to see a loss. I have a birthday party tomorrow for my DGS turning 2. I can’t turn down cake and icecream so I am going to try to be extra careful today and Monday. That’s my plan! My starting weight this challenge was 205.4 and that feels a million miles away from where I am now. I know, in reality it’s not, but at my pace, it may as well be. A couple of good days in a row, (after the party and now that the holiday is over) and I could possibly get back there. That would be a great mini-goal!
    Day 86 – 03/21 …..208.4…… WHAT???? Love cal junk yesterday. Not healthy but well within calorie range. No TMI/Potty so playing that game again! Frustrating but typical.
    Day 87 – 03/22 …..207.4…… Left, Right and Upside Down. The birthday party was really nice but filled with junky food and treats so I’m a bit surprised at this drop. I’ll have to keep an eye on this over the coming days.
    Day 88 – 03/23 …..209.0…… My daughter brought Dairy Queen home from out of town. 2 chili dogs that tasted like a salt shaker and a medium Blizzard. Bloated me up this morning and I hope it is just temporary. I got in almost 12,000 steps yesterday. Over 5 miles on my fitbit and 16 sets of steps just doing housework and chasing DGS. But it was not enough to mitigate the damage.
    Day 89 – 03/24 …..xxxxx……
    Day 90 – 03/25 …..xxxxx……
    Day 91 – 03/26 …..xxxxx
    Day 92 – 03/27 …..xxxxx……
    Day 93 – 03/28 …..xxxxx……
    Day 94 – 03/29 …..xxxxx……
    Day 95 – 03/30 …..xxxxx……
