    'm here again to get back on track. I haven't been mindful of my eating and really feel miserable for it. Healthy eating please! That said, I'm joining in here a bit late have camped over the long weekend with all the yumminess that goes along with that.

    Round 146
    64 years old, 159cm, starting weight ~68kg April 2020, having been in maintenance for the last 6 months or so.

    Goal weight this round: 56.5kg

    Day/Weight/Comment
    04/02 - 57.3kg, off to camp for long weekend
    04/03 - away from scale
    04/04 - away from scale
    04/05 - away from scale
    04/06 - 57.4kg, need to buckle down and get serious about food choices
    04/07 - 56.8kg, feeling much better after just one day of sensible eating
    04/08 - 56.8kg, no change but not unexpected, need to do more physical activity to offset calorie intake

    @starrjulia8 @PrimalJillian @Chalmation

    I’ve had trouble with MFP by itself. I don’t use Fitbit, I have Garmin and enter my weight there and it DOES sync with MFP but I try to go from the MFP weight graph to here and it “can’t connect” I think the issue is ALL MFP

    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    @quiltingjaine I think your right. A bit frustrating. I have reset the link between Fitbit and MFP, and it will sync immediately after but not continuously. Also it won't let me do it from my phone only the computer. My concern it there is no open case within Help or Tech support on the website indicating they are aware of the issue or they are trying to fix it. Previously I sent them emails about this and they were working on a resolution. As of yesterday, nothing in the works and no way to contact them. Only a instant pre-set message.

    Increase daily steps to 8000

    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷

    March focus: improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale

    Aims:
    2021 Focus:
    • Maintain weight < 150
    • Strengthen strategies to reframe the tendency to use unhealthy snack food as a reward/treat.
    • Make sure I have prepared healthy snacks available
    • Cut down on eating between meals by keeping busy
    [/color]
    Never give up! Never give in!
    Recent Back Story:
    • 2018 goal: get back down to 160 ✅
    • 2019 goal: proceed down to 150 ✅ with 2 months to spare
    • 2020 goal: maintain below 150 dropping slowly down to 145 ✅ Strength training has slowed progress, but that’s okay.
    • That's a WIN in my book!
    • 2021
    • Focus: maintenance! I might even manage to lose a bit more ever so slowly.
    • (One good thing about Covid is that I don't have to traverse the minefield of family celebration meals.)

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!
