    Back to accountability. I did not journal my food over the last 3 days ... only my alcohol consumption. Weight is up ... no wonder! No walking, little diet and lots of stress. Time to turn it back around.

    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 206.8 Walked 1.2 + 1.4 miles, 2 glasses wine. All the company at my house has left, my DD & her husband are on their honeymoon, my mom is around for a couple more days for doctors’ appts, and I’m caring for DD’s 2 golden doodles … so lots of walking planned this week as well as running mom around and gardening! Today back to losing the pounds … no more excuses.
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 206.6 Walked .6 miles, gardened, 1365 cal, 97 net carbs, 1 glass wine.

    I let things get out of hand yesterday eating wise and just kind of threw in the towel. Back to being responsible!
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 206.3 Walked 1.4 + 1.5 + 3.4 miles … lots of dog walking! Gardening digging up bushes. 1520 cal, 36 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.

    hmmmm not making much progress at reaching my 205.x target … repeating it again!

Virtual cooking class with Underbelly Hospitality making mac & cheese with pork & smoked bacon sausage. Rich foods … scale was not kind to me this morning.
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26: 207.7 Walked 1.5 + 3.2 miles, gardening replacing bushes (bruised the ball of my foot), 1378 cal, 68 net carbs, AF. Very active day. After dropping off DD’s dogs DH and I went out for dinner Ragin Cajun … yummy fried shrimp but switched the french fries out for grilled veggies. I avoided eating what DH & I usually get shrimp poboy and shrimp & crab gumbo which both of those are loaded with carbs.
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 206.6 Walked 1 mile, 1845 cal, 110 net carbs, 2 wines.
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 207.4 Walked 2.6 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 wines.

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds

    This is my 6th 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. Round 5 loss 4.6.
    23.9 pound loss over 500 days.
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    I keep track of calories left over at the end of each day, in the Green on the MFP tracker. My aim is 500+ average calories in the Green each day (deficit) - this would lead to a 5lb loss over 100 days.
    Day 1: Mon, 4/5: 133.1 - I actually dnw, I am using my EW from the last round. 1049 in the Green
    Day 2: Tues, 4/6: 134.3 - Ouch. 607 in the Green
    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 133.7 - Completely on track. I am starting to wonder if the daily skating for 2 weeks developed me some heavier quads and glutes. 844 in the Green
    Day 4: Thurs, 4/8: 132.6 - Saw 131.XX many times in the last 100, trying to get there and beyond. 536 in the Green
    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 133.2 - Extremely early weigh-in, 3am. My schedule is out of wack right now. 516 in the Green
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 132.1 - Do we have only 6 days in this first week? 439 in the Green


    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 133.8 - Hoping that this is just some sort of weird fluctuation. 565 in the Green
    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 132.4 - Better. 846 in the Green
    Day 9: Tues, 4/13: 133.7 - Trying not to let this fluctuation upset me. eating and exercise were on point. I am really off of my clock this week adding an evening job into my mix. 765 in the Green
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 133.3 - I had hoped to have a cushion so that I could have Ribs later this week. After juggling my bunch of jobs, getting home late and eating very late...I may have to delay my Ribs feast. Keeping my workouts up, but only little bits at a time this week. 900 in the Green
    Day 11: Thurs, 4/15:: 132.1 - Good, back to last week's EW. 822 in the Green
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 131.5 - Lowest so far on this journey, fluctuations may happen, but touching it for the first time feels great. 7 in the Green
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 133.3 - Delicious Ribs last night. Honey Garlic variety this time. Kind of worth the almost 2 pound gain, and expected. I will work it off over the next week. I will have Ribs again in the month of May : - ) Hours of yard work/gardening on the schedule for today on top of Fitness Marshall workouts throughout the day. 865 in the Green



    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 133.1 - Hoping to work the Ribs off over the next few days. I used to have them each week instead of each month. I see why it was impossible for me to take weight off back then. Once per month is enough : - ) 698 in the Green
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 134.2 : - ( 689 in the Green
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 133.0 - Better, but 16 days in and only 0.1 under my start weight. Sticking with it. 899 in the Green
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 132.9 - I have been battling a sore shoulder for 2 weeks, still working out, but modifying. 1187 in the Green
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 133.1. I am going to give myself a break after work tonight for the next 2 days and indulge slightly. I will just have to deal with the consequences. I have been going at breakneck pace this week on the work front. 283 in the Green
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 132.4 - Surprising, because I had appies for dinner: spinach artichoke bites, boneless dry garlic pork, and the like. Calories in and out were on point though. Veered away from my usual chicken breast with 4 veggies and a bit of rice. 893 in the Green
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 133.5 - I repeated the eating behaviour, so expected this. I needed a break and my weight wasn't changing anyway. Meal prepping today, my day off. 646 in the Green



    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 134.3 - Not very happy with this number. 528 in the Green
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26:133.5 - I worked a split shift yesterday, so ate later than I like to do. 842 in the Green
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 132.7 - Hopefully adapting to my newest work schedule and can begin to drop some more weight again. 986 in the Green
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 131.9 - That was really nice to see this morning. 867 in the green
    Day 25: Thurs, 4/29: 132.2 - Planning on having something a bit more indulgent tonight after work. 570 in the Green
    Day 26: Fri, 4/30: 131.8 - Better. I actually have 2 days off this week, so I will get some meal prep in and lots of outdoor activity. 290 in the Green
    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 131.6 - Wasn't really that "good" yesterday, but did keep within my calories 1133 in the Green


    1st Week Goal Weight: 131.1
    1st Week Actual Weight: 132.1

    @deepwoodslady
    Oh Donna, so sorry to hear about the blood sugar spike and then blood sugar drop.
    Awful that you were in your car when it happened. Please put some emergency sugar cubes or glucerna or something in your vehicle - just in case.
    I know that this is one of the main reasons that you are on this weight loss journey - to hopefully get out of that terrible pattern.
    Kudos to you for sticking with it and big big hugs.

    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 149.2
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 149.8 weighed earlier than usual so could have been lower
    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 152 Had bad day yesterday. Happens every time I lose weight – I start off great then regress.
    Week 1 GAIN: +3.2

    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 151
    Day 9: Tue, 4/13: 150.4
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 149.8 Slowly making my way back down!
    Day 11: Thu, 4/15: 149
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 149
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 148.2
    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 150.2 Lunch out yesterday. Had a salad but it was huge and I ate every last bite!
    Week 2 Loss: -1.8

    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 148.8
    Day 16: Tue, 4/20: 148.4

    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 144.6
    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 149 This is simply not possible. I think yesterday’s weight may have been too low, but this huge gain cannot be right. I did eat out last night but I was reasonable, and it was something I've eaten before. This has to be some major water retention.

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

    STARTING WEIGHT (April 4, 2021): 207.6

    Day 01 – 04/05 …..206.6….. Good luck everyone this new 100.
    Day 02 – 04/06 …..205.6…..
    Day 03 – 04/07 …..207.6…..
    Day 04 – 04/08 …..208.2…..
    Day 05 - 04/09 …..207.8…..
    Day 06 – 04/10 …..207.2…..
    Day 07 – 04/11 …..206.4…..
    Day 08 – 04/12 …..207.4…..
    Day 09 – 04/13 …..207.2…..
    Day 10 – 04/14 …..207.6…..
    Day 11 – 04/15 …..207.6…..
    Day 12 – 04/16 …..207.2…..
    Day 13 – 04/17 …..206.6…..
    Day 14 – 04/18 …..208.2…..
    Day 15 – 04/19 …..206.0…..
    Day 16 – 04/20 …..206.0….. Nothing extra popped up on the scale from the travel yesterday. Sometimes it takes a few days but I can always hope…..
    Day 17 - 04/21 …..207.0…..Good day yesterday. However, very very late dinner and very early weigh in probably explains. Travel today to the dentist. UGH.
    Day 18 – 04/22 …..207.2….. slightly up after yesterday’s travels. More travels today (Covid #2 shot) but I may try to just eat at home as I will be home in just a matter of a few (3-4) hours. Last night was an indulgent dessert that was way too dense and sweet. I should have left some of it on the plate but I didn’t. I’m glad the uptick is only 0.2 . Hopefully more will not creep up on the scale later because of it.
    Day 19 – 04/23 …..208.6….. I feel weak, dizzy and horrid today after the shot yesterday but I am still grateful that I could get it. A slight headache too, but no fever or chills. I woke up at 4:00 a.m and couldn’t get back to sleep. There is no way I can stay sitting up today. Even with the expected work crew, I’ve got to stay laying down. Tons of water yesterday. I ended up with subway because we passed one and my brother wanted it so bad (he doesn’t drive). Too much junk last night on the grab and go. Too bad my appetite wasn’t affected. Eating felt fine.
    Day 20 – 04/24 …..206.6….. My scale is all over the place. I think yesterday’s weigh-in may have been because I was super-hydrating after the vaccination and bloated with water (?). Two pounds is a lot to drop when I ate just fine in light of, otherwise, feeling bad Feeling better today. You are right about this thing @Lilylady3k : It is worth feeling like you have the flu for one day in order to be protected. A real flu would last much longer. Today the tree service is coming to chop down some scary trees and my work crew will be here to help with the clean-up and then (hopefully) do a little more work in the bathroom and laundry area. I am grateful for the drop on the scale.
    Day 21 – 04/25 …..206.0….. burned 4000 calories in yardwork yesterday. More scheduled for today. Gnats swarmed and now my right eye is swollen up and I’m itching all over. Will still try to make a good day of it.
    Day 22 – 04/26 …..204.0….. So thrilled! Doing the happy dance. Tree clean-up is complete except for a one small area that they still need to cut up. Bad weather for the next 3 days so that will come later this week. Snow/rain mix today. Thunderstorms tomorrow followed by rain on Wednesday predicted. I am so happy right now. I feel so liberated and smart!
    Day 23 – 04/27 …..205.4….. I am shocked but not shocked. I thought it was too good to be true! Yesterday was an extremely successful day in the food department. Both calories and carbs were very low. So low, in fact, that I experienced a small glucose drop. I caught it very quickly (while idly sitting, sitting, sitting waiting for my limestone pad to be poured, my stumps to be excavated out and my new shed to be brought in by the Amish). I handled the drop easily at the beginning of feeling sickly. No binge. I slept really really good last night with more sleep than normal. The only explanation is that my calorie burn and steps were way down due to having to stay away from the work being done outside. Lots of sitting. Only 5600 steps and only 2200 calories burned. I’ll try to get in more activity today although rain and thunderstorms are on the way any minute. I am still very happy to losing consistently. Even with the uptick overnight, my fat percentage went down. Thai food is being brought in by a friend tonight from out of town for me. Lots of healthy veggies, chicken breast and curry. However, the sodium will not be good. I will eat half today and half tomorrow. Going to push water all day. I liked the look of that number 4 in my readings yesterday. Going to get back there asap.
    Day 24 – 04/28 …..205.6….. No Thai food afterall which was probably a blessing. Weight is still trending down at trendweight.com . Fat % is really going down. It now says I will reach my goal by 2023. That is way way better than the 2050’s and the 2030’s so I am pleased.
    Day 25 – 04/29 …..207.2….. I have no idea what is going on. It was a meatless day yesterday. All veggies for dinner with a little sour cream and oatmeal for breakfast. Very low calorie. The only thing I can think of is that I did have some sunflower seed kernals for a snack last night. A small measured amount but they were salted. I will watch my diet carefully today and push water and see what happens tomorrow. I do know this…..my body really wants to stay in the 7’s and I’m just not having it!
    Day 26 – 04/30 …..206.2….. Horridly high glucose in the middle of the night. Almost called an ambulance (there is a tiny hospital one hour away) when my numbers hit 565. Should be about 80-90. Found some old medication I am no longer on to supplement my current diabetes medication and took it. Walked my backyard in the dark and downed some apple cider vinegar shots. Finally, after no sleep, I got it down to 200. The hunger (a symptom) was ravenous but food would have made a high glucose level worse so I had to suffer through that. Tweaking my diet, trying to change things up for the better is just affecting me in an unfair way. It’s an obstacle course but I will continue to try to navigate it and get to the other side with the changes I need. I see my doctor on the 11th. I will talk to her about my options although I HATE the idea of going back on extra meds because I can’t seem to substantially lose weight. I am nervous about how today will go. Watching things carefully. In the meantime, I am grateful for the drop on the scale and the small loss for April.

    Weight Loss in April……………….. 1.4 lbs
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.4 lbs


    Day 27 – 05/01 …..206.6….. Not a good start for May but I’ll stay on top of it today.
    Day 28 – 05/02 …..207.4….. This time it was a severe sugar drop while in my car the next town over. Feeding frenzy in the car with snacks bought at the gas station. I ate until it stopped. Not good because that usually means it goes too high afterward from the food but I swear, it is instinct to eat, eat, eat until you can feel the difference. My body is really fighting me on dietetic changes. Even exercise. I will win this battle! I know my journey is a bit different than most of yours, but I appreciate you all being here with me on mine as I navigate and overcome.
    Day 29 – 05/03 …..207.4….. This should have dropped a bit after a good day yesterday. My body is just fighting me and being stubborn (which is also part of my normal personality lol) but persistence should pay off.

    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 205.8 No exercise, 1835 cal,, 86 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. YEAH! Now to stay in the 205s and not slip back up the rest of this week. Challenges ahead this week with the extra company, joint family dinner (think rehearsal dinner at fancy restaurant) and 1 year anniversary party.
    Day 11: Thurs, 4/15: 206.3 Walked 2.4 miles, plank, 1612 cal, 88 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 205.x Crawling my way back to 205.7 again after losing it in February
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 207.6 … let the 205s slip away yet again.

    Back to accountability. I did not journal my food over the last 3 days ... only my alcohol consumption. Weight is up ... no wonder! No walking, little diet and lots of stress. Time to turn it back around.

    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 207.1 Dancing, 4 glasses of wine. DD’s 1 year anniversary celebration at The Grove in Houston!
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 206.8 Walked 1.2 + 1.4 miles, 2 glasses wine. All the company at my house has left, my DD & her husband are on their honeymoon, my mom is around for a couple more days for doctors’ appts, and I’m caring for DD’s 2 golden doodles … so lots of walking planned this week as well as running mom around and gardening! Today back to losing the pounds … no more excuses.
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 206.6 Walked .6 miles, gardened, 1365 cal, 97 net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 206.5 Walked 1.3 miles, 1499 cal, 109 net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 207.3 Walked 2.73 miles, a little gardening, 2162 cal, 168 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Lots of running around today in town … mom caught her plane home, checked on DD’s condo (plants & packages), fast-food lunch then Grimaldi’s pizza for surprise dinner with DS & his wife.
    I let things get out of hand yesterday eating wise and just kind of threw in the towel. Back to being responsible!
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 206.3 Walked 1.4 + 1.5 + 3.4 miles … lots of dog walking! Gardening digging up bushes. 1520 cal, 36 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 206.7 Walked 2.3 + 1.4 miles, 1381 cal, 86 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Sister stopped by for dinner and more than usual bottles of wine opened. Definitely a TGIF.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: 205.x It was touch and go last week.
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 206.7
    hmmmm not making much progress at reaching my 205.x target … repeating it again!
    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 208.1 Walked 1.6 miles, 1967 cal, 158 net carbs, 1 Little Sunday Cocktail + remaining 1/2 can Vinny New York Bubbly Wine, 1 glass wine. Virtual cooking class with Underbelly Hospitality making mac & cheese with pork & smoked bacon sausage. Rich foods … scale was not kind to me this morning.
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26: 207.7 Walked 1.5 + 3.2 miles, gardening replacing bushes (bruised the ball of my foot), 1378 cal, 68 net carbs, AF. Very active day. After dropping off DD’s dogs DH and I went out for dinner Ragin Cajun … yummy fried shrimp but switched the french fries out for grilled veggies. I avoided eating what DH & I usually get shrimp poboy and shrimp & crab gumbo which both of those are loaded with carbs.
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 206.6 Walked 1 mile, 1845 cal, 110 net carbs, 2 wines.
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 207.4 Walked 2.6 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 wines.

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds

    This is my 6th 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. Round 5 loss 4.6.
    23.9 pound loss over 500 days.
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    I keep track of calories left over at the end of each day, in the Green on the MFP tracker. My aim is 500+ average calories in the Green each day (deficit) - this would lead to a 5lb loss over 100 days.

    Day 1: Mon, 4/5: 133.1 - I actually dnw, I am using my EW from the last round. 1049 in the Green
    Day 2: Tues, 4/6: 134.3 - Ouch. 607 in the Green
    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 133.7 - Completely on track. I am starting to wonder if the daily skating for 2 weeks developed me some heavier quads and glutes. 844 in the Green
    Day 4: Thurs, 4/8: 132.6 - Saw 131.XX many times in the last 100, trying to get there and beyond. 536 in the Green
    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 133.2 - Extremely early weigh-in, 3am. My schedule is out of wack right now. 516 in the Green
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 132.1 - Do we have only 6 days in this first week? 439 in the Green


    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 133.8 - Hoping that this is just some sort of weird fluctuation. 565 in the Green
    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 132.4 - Better. 846 in the Green
    Day 9: Tues, 4/13: 133.7 - Trying not to let this fluctuation upset me. eating and exercise were on point. I am really off of my clock this week adding an evening job into my mix. 765 in the Green
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 133.3 - I had hoped to have a cushion so that I could have Ribs later this week. After juggling my bunch of jobs, getting home late and eating very late...I may have to delay my Ribs feast. Keeping my workouts up, but only little bits at a time this week. 900 in the Green
    Day 11: Thurs, 4/15:: 132.1 - Good, back to last week's EW. 822 in the Green
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 131.5 - Lowest so far on this journey, fluctuations may happen, but touching it for the first time feels great. 7 in the Green
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 133.3 - Delicious Ribs last night. Honey Garlic variety this time. Kind of worth the almost 2 pound gain, and expected. I will work it off over the next week. I will have Ribs again in the month of May : - ) Hours of yard work/gardening on the schedule for today on top of Fitness Marshall workouts throughout the day. 865 in the Green



    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 133.1 - Hoping to work the Ribs off over the next few days. I used to have them each week instead of each month. I see why it was impossible for me to take weight off back then. Once per month is enough : - ) 698 in the Green
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 134.2 : - ( 689 in the Green
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 133.0 - Better, but 16 days in and only 0.1 under my start weight. Sticking with it. 899 in the Green
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 132.9 - I have been battling a sore shoulder for 2 weeks, still working out, but modifying. 1187 in the Green
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 133.1. I am going to give myself a break after work tonight for the next 2 days and indulge slightly. I will just have to deal with the consequences. I have been going at breakneck pace this week on the work front. 283 in the Green
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 132.4 - Surprising, because I had appies for dinner: spinach artichoke bites, boneless dry garlic pork, and the like. Calories in and out were on point though. Veered away from my usual chicken breast with 4 veggies and a bit of rice. 893 in the Green
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 133.5 - I repeated the eating behaviour, so expected this. I needed a break and my weight wasn't changing anyway. Meal prepping today, my day off. 646 in the Green



    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 134.3 - Not very happy with this number. 528 in the Green
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26:133.5 - I worked a split shift yesterday, so ate later than I like to do. 842 in the Green
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 132.7 - Hopefully adapting to my newest work schedule and can begin to drop some more weight again. 986 in the Green
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 131.9 - That was really nice to see this morning. 867 in the green
    Day 25: Thurs, 4/29: 132.2 - Planning on having something a bit more indulgent tonight after work. 570 in the Green
    Day 26: Fri, 4/30: 131.8 - Better. I actually have 2 days off this week, so I will get some meal prep in and lots of outdoor activity. 290 in the Green
    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 131.6 - Wasn't really that "good" yesterday, but did keep within my calories 1133 in the Green
    1st Week Goal Weight: 131.1
    1st Week Actual Weight: 132.1
    Excess calories left over in the Green on the tracker: 3991 in the Green, still more than enough to lose a pound (3500 cal) even though it was a shorter week.

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Same as last week's goal (which i didn't reach)
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 133.3
    Excess calories left over in the Green on the tracker: 4770 - more than enough to lose a pound

    3rd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Running goal until I hit it
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 133.5
    Excess calories left over in the Green on the tracker (deficit): 5295 in the Green, should have lost a pound

    4th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Running goal until I hit it
    4th Week Actual Weight: 131.6 - getting closer to that 2lb loss since the start of the 100
    Excess calories left over in the Green on the tracker (deficit): 5216 - More than enough to lose a pound and lost 2lbs

    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 133.0 - Really? Sticking with it even though I am pretty much back up to my start weight today. 812 in the Green
    Day 29: Mon, 5/3: 132.2 - Later dinner because of a split shift yesterday, but back to normal for the rest of the week.
    Day 30: Tues, 5/4: 132.4 - Planning to stay "good" until at least Thursday. I know that it takes awhile for that "good" lifestyle to show up on the scale.
    Day 31: Wed, 5/5:
    Day 32: Thurs, 5/6:
    Day 33: Fri, 5/7: Vaccine day
    Day 34: Sat, 5/8:

    5th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Running goal until I hit it

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ (April 5th through July 12, 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

    STARTING WEIGHT (April 4, 2021): 207.6

    Day 01 – 04/05 …..206.6….. Good luck everyone this new 100.
    Day 02 – 04/06 …..205.6…..
    Day 03 – 04/07 …..207.6…..
    Day 04 – 04/08 …..208.2…..
    Day 05 - 04/09 …..207.8…..
    Day 06 – 04/10 …..207.2…..
    Day 07 – 04/11 …..206.4…..
    Day 08 – 04/12 …..207.4…..
    Day 09 – 04/13 …..207.2…..
    Day 10 – 04/14 …..207.6…..
    Day 11 – 04/15 …..207.6…..
    Day 12 – 04/16 …..207.2…..
    Day 13 – 04/17 …..206.6…..
    Day 14 – 04/18 …..208.2…..
    Day 15 – 04/19 …..206.0…..
    Day 16 – 04/20 …..206.0….. Nothing extra popped up on the scale from the travel yesterday. Sometimes it takes a few days but I can always hope…..
    Day 17 - 04/21 …..207.0…..Good day yesterday. However, very very late dinner and very early weigh in probably explains. Travel today to the dentist. UGH.
    Day 18 – 04/22 …..207.2….. slightly up after yesterday’s travels. More travels today (Covid #2 shot) but I may try to just eat at home as I will be home in just a matter of a few (3-4) hours. Last night was an indulgent dessert that was way too dense and sweet. I should have left some of it on the plate but I didn’t. I’m glad the uptick is only 0.2 . Hopefully more will not creep up on the scale later because of it.
    Day 19 – 04/23 …..208.6….. I feel weak, dizzy and horrid today after the shot yesterday but I am still grateful that I could get it. A slight headache too, but no fever or chills. I woke up at 4:00 a.m and couldn’t get back to sleep. There is no way I can stay sitting up today. Even with the expected work crew, I’ve got to stay laying down. Tons of water yesterday. I ended up with subway because we passed one and my brother wanted it so bad (he doesn’t drive). Too much junk last night on the grab and go. Too bad my appetite wasn’t affected. Eating felt fine.
    Day 20 – 04/24 …..206.6….. My scale is all over the place. I think yesterday’s weigh-in may have been because I was super-hydrating after the vaccination and bloated with water (?). Two pounds is a lot to drop when I ate just fine in light of, otherwise, feeling bad Feeling better today. You are right about this thing @Lilylady3k : It is worth feeling like you have the flu for one day in order to be protected. A real flu would last much longer. Today the tree service is coming to chop down some scary trees and my work crew will be here to help with the clean-up and then (hopefully) do a little more work in the bathroom and laundry area. I am grateful for the drop on the scale.
    Day 21 – 04/25 …..206.0….. burned 4000 calories in yardwork yesterday. More scheduled for today. Gnats swarmed and now my right eye is swollen up and I’m itching all over. Will still try to make a good day of it.
    Day 22 – 04/26 …..204.0….. So thrilled! Doing the happy dance. Tree clean-up is complete except for a one small area that they still need to cut up. Bad weather for the next 3 days so that will come later this week. Snow/rain mix today. Thunderstorms tomorrow followed by rain on Wednesday predicted. I am so happy right now. I feel so liberated and smart!
    Day 23 – 04/27 …..205.4….. I am shocked but not shocked. I thought it was too good to be true! Yesterday was an extremely successful day in the food department. Both calories and carbs were very low. So low, in fact, that I experienced a small glucose drop. I caught it very quickly (while idly sitting, sitting, sitting waiting for my limestone pad to be poured, my stumps to be excavated out and my new shed to be brought in by the Amish). I handled the drop easily at the beginning of feeling sickly. No binge. I slept really really good last night with more sleep than normal. The only explanation is that my calorie burn and steps were way down due to having to stay away from the work being done outside. Lots of sitting. Only 5600 steps and only 2200 calories burned. I’ll try to get in more activity today although rain and thunderstorms are on the way any minute. I am still very happy to losing consistently. Even with the uptick overnight, my fat percentage went down. Thai food is being brought in by a friend tonight from out of town for me. Lots of healthy veggies, chicken breast and curry. However, the sodium will not be good. I will eat half today and half tomorrow. Going to push water all day. I liked the look of that number 4 in my readings yesterday. Going to get back there asap.
    Day 24 – 04/28 …..205.6….. No Thai food afterall which was probably a blessing. Weight is still trending down at trendweight.com . Fat % is really going down. It now says I will reach my goal by 2023. That is way way better than the 2050’s and the 2030’s so I am pleased.
    Day 25 – 04/29 …..207.2….. I have no idea what is going on. It was a meatless day yesterday. All veggies for dinner with a little sour cream and oatmeal for breakfast. Very low calorie. The only thing I can think of is that I did have some sunflower seed kernals for a snack last night. A small measured amount but they were salted. I will watch my diet carefully today and push water and see what happens tomorrow. I do know this…..my body really wants to stay in the 7’s and I’m just not having it!
    Day 26 – 04/30 …..206.2….. Horridly high glucose in the middle of the night. Almost called an ambulance (there is a tiny hospital one hour away) when my numbers hit 565. Should be about 80-90. Found some old medication I am no longer on to supplement my current diabetes medication and took it. Walked my backyard in the dark and downed some apple cider vinegar shots. Finally, after no sleep, I got it down to 200. The hunger (a symptom) was ravenous but food would have made a high glucose level worse so I had to suffer through that. Tweaking my diet, trying to change things up for the better is just affecting me in an unfair way. It’s an obstacle course but I will continue to try to navigate it and get to the other side with the changes I need. I see my doctor on the 11th. I will talk to her about my options although I HATE the idea of going back on extra meds because I can’t seem to substantially lose weight. I am nervous about how today will go. Watching things carefully. In the meantime, I am grateful for the drop on the scale and the small loss for April.

    Weight Loss in April……………….. 1.4 lbs
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.4 lbs


    Day 27 – 05/01 …..206.6….. Not a good start for May but I’ll stay on top of it today.
    Day 28 – 05/02 …..207.4….. This time it was a severe sugar drop while in my car the next town over. Feeding frenzy in the car with snacks bought at the gas station. I ate until it stopped. Not good because that usually means it goes too high afterward from the food but I swear, it is instinct to eat, eat, eat until you can feel the difference. My body is really fighting me on dietetic changes. Even exercise. I will win this battle! I know my journey is a bit different than most of yours, but I appreciate you all being here with me on mine as I navigate and overcome.
    Day 29 – 05/03 …..207.4….. This should have dropped a bit after a good day yesterday. My body is just fighting me and being stubborn (which is also part of my normal personality lol) but persistence should pay off.
    Day 30 – 05/04 …..206.6….. I am traveling today for a bone scan. Found a new kitty in the woods next to my yard day before yesterday. I am trying to find an owner on Facebook but no hits yet. I hope I get to keep her. I’ve already named her Pebbles. She is a sweet young thing.

    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 149.2
    Day 4: Thu, 4/8: 148.8
    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 149.2
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 149.8 weighed earlier than usual so could have been lower
    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 152 Had bad day yesterday. Happens every time I lose weight – I start off great then regress.
    Week 1 GAIN: +3.2

    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 151
    Day 9: Tue, 4/13: 150.4
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 149.8 Slowly making my way back down!
    Day 11: Thu, 4/15: 149
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 149
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 148.2
    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 150.2 Lunch out yesterday. Had a salad but it was huge and I ate every last bite!
    Week 2 Loss: -1.8

    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 148.8
    Day 16: Tue, 4/20: 148.4
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 147.8
    Day 18: Thu, 4/22: 148.2
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 147.4
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 147.4
    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 147
    Week 3 Loss: -1.2 (from lowest weight last week)

    Day 22: Mon, 4/26: 147
    Day 23: Tue, 4/27: 147
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 146.2
    Day 25: Thu, 4/29: 146
    Day 26: Fri, 4/30: 146
    April Loss: -5.8

    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 144.6
    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 149 This is simply not possible. I think yesterday’s weight may have been too low, but this huge gain cannot be right. I did eat out last night but I was reasonable, and it was something I've eaten before. This has to be some major water retention.
    Week 4 Loss: +2

    Day 29: Mon, 5/3: 147.2
    Day 30: Tue, 5/4: 146.2

    Day 27 –05/01 …..213.8….. Woke up ready to kill the beginning of this challenge, even tho I started a month late, I'm ready to shred it! Spent most of the day studying and decluttering our downstairs. Added in a 3.75km walk with my pup.

    Day 30 – 05/04 …..214.0….. not liking the small gain but I am not worried,  I have been eating healthy and staying on track. One of these days I will be in oneder land and will forget about this small struggle 💪🏽.

    Happy Tuesday!

    May starting weight: 160
    May goal: 147

    Day 30 -
    05/04: 158.4

    No change in weight since yesterday. Hmm, was it because I had a heavy dinner? 🤔
    Today was okay - ate clean, got a quick workout in. But I did not meet my step goal. Had a long work day, so I skipped my post dinner walk to turn into to bed early.

    Well, tomorrow's schedule looks empty, so I hope to get in some extra steps. Until later!

    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 207.4 Walked 2.4 + .5, 2077 cal, 100 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Fried chicken for lunch and pizza for dinner. Plenty of water! Need to clean up my meals in order to get to 206 by Saturday.

    This Week’s Challenge
    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 207.2 Walk 2.3 miles, garden, 1584 cal, 131 net carbs, 1 beer … my favorite St. Arnold’s Summer Pils is back in season! Fast food fries for lunch and chips with guacamole at dinner ... right back where I was :( Letting the 206 slip away.
    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 206.4 Walked 3.2 miles, plank, garden, 1396 cal, 58 net carbs, AF. Resetting to focus on getting my water and carbs under control. Found the 206 again from Saturday!
    Day 9: Tues, 4/13: 206.0 Walked 4.2 miles, garden, 1762 cal, 152 net carbs, AF. Took 5” out of my dress waist and hips when tailoring it for the anniversary party! Feel so much better in it this year.
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 205.8 No exercise, 1835 cal,, 86 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. YEAH! Now to stay in the 205s and not slip back up the rest of this week. Challenges ahead this week with the extra company, joint family dinner (think rehearsal dinner at fancy restaurant) and 1 year anniversary party.

    2nd Week Actual Weight: 207.6 … let the 205s slip away yet again.

    Back to accountability. I did not journal my food over the last 3 days ... only my alcohol consumption. Weight is up ... no wonder! No walking, little diet and lots of stress. Time to turn it back around.

    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 207.1 Dancing, 4 glasses of wine. DD’s 1 year anniversary celebration at The Grove in Houston!
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 206.8 Walked 1.2 + 1.4 miles, 2 glasses wine. All the company at my house has left, my DD & her husband are on their honeymoon, my mom is around for a couple more days for doctors’ appts, and I’m caring for DD’s 2 golden doodles … so lots of walking planned this week as well as running mom around and gardening! Today back to losing the pounds … no more excuses.
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 206.6 Walked .6 miles, gardened, 1365 cal, 97 net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 206.5 Walked 1.3 miles, 1499 cal, 109 net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 207.3 Walked 2.73 miles, a little gardening, 2162 cal, 168 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Lots of running around today in town … mom caught her plane home, checked on DD’s condo (plants & packages), fast-food lunch then Grimaldi’s pizza for surprise dinner with DS & his wife.
    I let things get out of hand yesterday eating wise and just kind of threw in the towel. Back to being responsible!
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 206.3 Walked 1.4 + 1.5 + 3.4 miles … lots of dog walking! Gardening digging up bushes. 1520 cal, 36 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 206.7 Walked 2.3 + 1.4 miles, 1381 cal, 86 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Sister stopped by for dinner and more than usual bottles of wine opened. Definitely a TGIF.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: 205.x It was touch and go last week.
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 206.7

    5th Week Actual Weight:


    Challenging weeks ahead for food and drink as everyone gets back into the gathering mode and all my retirement activities kick back into high gear. Alumnae group which has monthly meeting as well as monthly bookclub, sisters who sip, dining out opportunities! I chair the book club. Then another alumnae group of ladies ... that also meet monthly where wine is usually involved. And I can't forget neighborhood bunco and another book club! Thank goodness for Lady Clay Shooters ... we don't drink or eat when shooting rounds of sporting clays.

    Then top that off with bridal showers, friend's 60th birthday party, weddings, and 1 year anniversary celebrations for weddings that occurred last year during COVID19 lockdown. As well as DH & I are planning a whirlwind trip to New Orleans, Natchez and Memphis in early June!

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds

    This is my 6th 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. Round 5 loss 4.6.
    23.9 pound loss over 500 days.
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    I keep track of calories left over at the end of each day, in the Green on the MFP tracker. My aim is 500+ average calories in the Green each day (deficit) - this would lead to a 5lb loss over 100 days.

    Day 1: Mon, 4/5: 133.1 - I actually dnw, I am using my EW from the last round. 1049 in the Green
    Day 2: Tues, 4/6: 134.3 - Ouch. 607 in the Green
    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 133.7 - Completely on track. I am starting to wonder if the daily skating for 2 weeks developed me some heavier quads and glutes. 844 in the Green
    Day 4: Thurs, 4/8: 132.6 - Saw 131.XX many times in the last 100, trying to get there and beyond. 536 in the Green
    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 133.2 - Extremely early weigh-in, 3am. My schedule is out of wack right now. 516 in the Green
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 132.1 - Do we have only 6 days in this first week? 439 in the Green


    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 133.8 - Hoping that this is just some sort of weird fluctuation. 565 in the Green
    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 132.4 - Better. 846 in the Green
    Day 9: Tues, 4/13: 133.7 - Trying not to let this fluctuation upset me. eating and exercise were on point. I am really off of my clock this week adding an evening job into my mix. 765 in the Green
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 133.3 - I had hoped to have a cushion so that I could have Ribs later this week. After juggling my bunch of jobs, getting home late and eating very late...I may have to delay my Ribs feast. Keeping my workouts up, but only little bits at a time this week. 900 in the Green
    Day 11: Thurs, 4/15:: 132.1 - Good, back to last week's EW. 822 in the Green
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 131.5 - Lowest so far on this journey, fluctuations may happen, but touching it for the first time feels great. 7 in the Green
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 133.3 - Delicious Ribs last night. Honey Garlic variety this time. Kind of worth the almost 2 pound gain, and expected. I will work it off over the next week. I will have Ribs again in the month of May : - ) Hours of yard work/gardening on the schedule for today on top of Fitness Marshall workouts throughout the day. 865 in the Green



    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 133.1 - Hoping to work the Ribs off over the next few days. I used to have them each week instead of each month. I see why it was impossible for me to take weight off back then. Once per month is enough : - ) 698 in the Green
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 134.2 : - ( 689 in the Green
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 133.0 - Better, but 16 days in and only 0.1 under my start weight. Sticking with it. 899 in the Green
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 132.9 - I have been battling a sore shoulder for 2 weeks, still working out, but modifying. 1187 in the Green
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 133.1. I am going to give myself a break after work tonight for the next 2 days and indulge slightly. I will just have to deal with the consequences. I have been going at breakneck pace this week on the work front. 283 in the Green
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 132.4 - Surprising, because I had appies for dinner: spinach artichoke bites, boneless dry garlic pork, and the like. Calories in and out were on point though. Veered away from my usual chicken breast with 4 veggies and a bit of rice. 893 in the Green
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 133.5 - I repeated the eating behaviour, so expected this. I needed a break and my weight wasn't changing anyway. Meal prepping today, my day off. 646 in the Green



    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 134.3 - Not very happy with this number. 528 in the Green
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26:133.5 - I worked a split shift yesterday, so ate later than I like to do. 842 in the Green
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 132.7 - Hopefully adapting to my newest work schedule and can begin to drop some more weight again. 986 in the Green
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 131.9 - That was really nice to see this morning. 867 in the green
    Day 25: Thurs, 4/29: 132.2 - Planning on having something a bit more indulgent tonight after work. 570 in the Green
    Day 26: Fri, 4/30: 131.8 - Better. I actually have 2 days off this week, so I will get some meal prep in and lots of outdoor activity. 290 in the Green
