    60+ age
    SW 4/4/21 155 lbs.
    Long Term Goal 135
    Short Term Goal 139 by mid May 2021
    Method = calorie counting, avoid sugar.
    I round off my weight to the higher pound (I don't chart half pounds, etc.)

    My short term goal of 139 by mid May is likely too aggressive, so if I can't accomplish it, I won't be worked up about it. I am being careful to not overly short my calories.
    [EDIT 5/5/21. Well, reality is that I'm NOT going to be a 139 by mid May. That is only 2 weeks away, and my loss rate is at a stand still.]

    Round 148 = 2 lb (it was my first round)

    Round 149
    Day/Weight/Comment
    5/2 145. I am starting off this round with a newly earned drop down to 145 (yesterday I was still in the 146 range.) I hope those wheat thins that I ate two day ago don't hit my scale tomorrow, I hope they will be of no big consequence to my weight.
    5/3 145
    5/4 146. Well that's going in the wrong direction! I'll reevaluate tomorrow. I know that yesterday's eating of about 300 more calories than usual does not account for a pound.
    5/5 146 Good thing when I bought my new pants for an upcoming trip, I got them "too big" rather than "too tight". It seems I'm sort of slowing down in my weight loss, and so I'd have been mad if I couldn't fit into them by the trip.
    5/6 146
    5/7 I weighed this morning, but have forgotten by tonight was it was..... I cannot remember if I'm back into 145 yet.

    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.

    **Comments and steps apply to previous day**

    SW 149 115.5
    5/2 115.0 Surprise! We had “Thai-Chinese” for lunch yesterday-NO RICE. Veggies and beef.
    5/3 115.5 I made and ate buttered popcorn last night.
    5/4 115.5 Donated blood yesterday. Forgot to take a healthy snack with me. Going to Outback with neighbor ladies for lun-net today. Haven’t been there in YEARS!
    5/5 116.0 Ate half of my small steak and half of my “loaded” baked potato. I was satisfied and not stuffed. I LOVE that the outside of the potato skin is covered in salt!
    5/6 116.5 Yesterday should have been my fasting day but I ate the leftovers from Tuesday.
    5/7 118.5 🤷‍♀️Greek salad with gyro and 1/2 pita - I ate the whole thing, it was all I ate all day. OMAD but 3rd high carb day in a row and up 3# in 3 days! I know it will go back down.
    5/8 117.5 Just getting rid of what ever it is the carbs cause.

    Sept. ‘18. 187.
    R149 Goals-168 limit alcohol, lots of water.

    5/3-172–We’ve had lots of really hot wind here. I need to get on a new plan for dealing with the weather-riding horse and getting exercise. Made keto pizza, using ground pork rinds and it was good.
    5/4-169-I was up yesterday from the weekend. Less wind today, walk A.M., horse, walk and work around the house.
    5/3-168-Walked 2 miles, got 1/4 of my seedlings transplanted. I need to get them all transplanted into 4” pots and I’ll put them in a small plastic pool and water them from the bottom up. That is my best bet to keep them alive while I will be gone next week taking care of my dad.
    5/4-167-A couple of my girlfriends are coming to stay and quilt for my birthday next week, so I made a couple of dinners and froze them. We will just need to thaw them out, cook them and keep sewing, I can’t wait!

    5/8-DNW-Went out to eat hamburgers last night. Yard and house work today to prep for MIL to come over for brunch tomorrow. I joined a local cribbage group; we’ll meet this afternoon.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    05/01 …..206.6….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
    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.

    05/03 …..207.4 ….. No change after a good day is disappointing me but onward I march in this battle. On another note, a cat that looks to be around 6-12 months old came walking out of the woods yesterday. She looks almost identical to the one I lost due to old age after 21 years last summer. I put her on my local facebook to see if someone will claim her and no hits yet. I bought a litter box, some litter, a cat toy, some food, some treats and she slept in the house last night. She is using the box well. She seemed to be starving and ate savagely. She is doing very well. She may end up my new pet. We shall see. I didn’t expect another pet at this very moment but pets are something I’ve always had and loved. I hope I will get to keep her. I haven’t picked a name yet. I am trying to think of something related to her coming out of the woods. Any ideas would be great!

    05/04 …..206.6 ….. Back where I started which I consider progress. In regards to the kitty, I think I will name her Pebbles. It’s not the sophisticated name I was looking for but after watching her personality and seeing that blend of orange hair I realized the name belonged to her. She is a sweet little thing. Still no hits on Facebook for her so maybe she will be mine after all. We shall see. Traveling today to get a bone scan because that is what they do to old people like me lol. Is it because my birthday is coming up? They said it is because of my cancer and specifically, my cancer meds. I guess I will just have to believe them LOL.

    05/05 …..208.8 ….. I did NOT eat enough to gain 2.2 pounds during my travel. No breakfast. No lunch. Only half my dinner, but there was a large piece of cheese cake I will confess to. Still….. 2.2 lb gain? The scale better be in a nicer mood tomorrow. Ridiculous!

    05/06 …..208.6 ….. Up fast, down slow. Funny I often think of this journey as a roller coaster ride when the trajectory is actually the opposite!

    05/07 …..208.6 ….. If I don’t change anything, I guess I can’t expect the scale to change. Meals ok. Not enough movement on a rainy day yesterday or today. Also, too many snacks. Even good snacks add up!

    05/08 …..208.6 ….. Pushing water today and planning on some extra movement. Metimucil later if necessary as this morning was not eventful.

    05/09 …..xxxxx …..

    05/10 …..xxxxx ….. My birthday!

    05/11 …..xxxxx …..

    5/6 116.2 I think this is the longest I’ve gone without posting. Last week after my husband’s birthday weekend, left me exhausted but this past weekend I was able to rest and then woke up with real energy again on Sunday. I decided to take today and tomorrow off to get some things done and have some time for myself. I’ve been consistent with exercise this week and calories but as usual the weekends are the tough time for me when take-out is easy and tempting. For dinner tonight I have short ribs planned with mashed potatoes. Have a good Thursday!
    5/7 Did not weigh
    5/8 Did not weigh. Yesterday was a super active day for me, I started with a 2.5 mile run, then I went for a couple walks as well. I ended up with like 19k steps or something like that. I also did some errands that involved walking around stores which added to that step count. By the end of the day, I was so tired! Later this afternoon, my husband and I are heading to the Berkshires to stay overnight and go for a hike in the morning. It’ll be nice to get out into the woods again and see new views. This morning, we got takeout for breakfast and I indulged in strawberry cheesecake pancakes, I ate about half and was so full. Then, I proceeded to feel a crash a little while after that. I even said out loud, it’s crazy how much I feel the way food affects me. It helped me realize why I try not to eat that way regularly. Happy Saturday!

    60+ age
    SW 4/4/21 155 lbs.
    Long Term Goal 135
    Short Term Goal 139 by mid May 2021
    Method = calorie counting, avoid sugar.
    I round off my weight to the higher pound (I don't chart half pounds, etc.)

    My short term goal of 139 by mid May is likely too aggressive, so if I can't accomplish it, I won't be worked up about it. I am being careful to not overly short my calories.
    [EDIT 5/5/21. Well, reality is that I'm NOT going to be a 139 by mid May. That is only 2 weeks away, and my loss rate is at a stand still.]

    Round 148 = 2 lb (it was my first round)

    Round 149
    Day/Weight/Comment
    5/2 145. I am starting off this round with a newly earned drop down to 145 (yesterday I was still in the 146 range.) I hope those wheat thins that I ate two day ago don't hit my scale tomorrow, I hope they will be of no big consequence to my weight.
    5/3 145
    5/4 146. Well that's going in the wrong direction! I'll reevaluate tomorrow. I know that yesterday's eating of about 300 more calories than usual does not account for a pound.
    5/5 146 Good thing when I bought my new pants for an upcoming trip, I got them "too big" rather than "too tight". It seems I'm sort of slowing down in my weight loss, and so I'd have been mad if I couldn't fit into them by the trip.
    5/6 146
    5/7 I weighed this morning, but have forgotten by tonight was it was..... I cannot remember if I'm back into 145 yet.
    5/8 145 + a couple of ounces. My loss has been at at stand still, which is disappointing to me since I carefully count calories. For the next round in a couple of days, I'll be adjusting my intro info because it's now confirmable that I'm going to be way over my "hope for short term" weight by mid May.

    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷
    May 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!

    JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS ~ Round 149 (round 81 for me ) I prove time after time that I need this to help me keep on track! Thank you @QuiltingJaine for setting up the new challenge.

    Female age 63 5' 4” - Challenge again for this round; need to continue to get back to maintenance weight– get back to and stay at or >130. A healthy life style has to be a permanent way of life.

    Keep calm – we're all in this together! Wash hands, be kind, continue to follow all latest Government guidelines in roadmap to normality for C-19 virus. Be positive for the vaccine – I've had my first, spread positivity and encouragement for it to others.

    Achieved goal weigh of 125lb in summer 2016 by losing 66lb and then gradually gained between 7 and 11 since then & didn't want to gain any more, It's took me 75 rounds to achieve my under 130 target; back to maintenance again!! A healthy life style has to be a permanent way of life.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    5/2 132.4 - 12.33 miles walked yesterday in the glorious Derbyshire dales, calories under.
    5/3 133 - picked up 3 year old DGS for the day, Managed to get out for a walk after we took him home, 5.97 miles in total. Calories 200 over.
    5/4 134.2 – no walking yesterday as travelling back from Derbyshire Dales and heavy rain when we got home hence calories over (I have a cold & want to keep feeding it!!). Happy Star Wars day for all fans (May the 4th be with you) !!!
    5/5 136.4 – uhgh!! still feeding that cold and feeding frenzy/comfort eating whilst 15 month old DGS seriously ill, back in transplant hospital with pneumonia & serious abdominal virus too, so worried about him & DD, she is exhausted. Must stop this ridiculous shoveling of wrong foods into my face; it will not help, I need to be strong (& healthy) to support them both even if it can only be at the end of the 'phone due to the pandemic & by taking his 3 year old elder brother out on his non nursery days. Also funeral of 94 year old aunt today. 8.4 miles walked yesterday.
    5/6 135.8 - 10.74 miles walked yesterday. Back on track & behaving myself, calories under.
    5/7 135 - Took DGS#1 (sick DGS's older 3 year old brother) out for the day, met DS & 2 year old DGD, we all played in the woods, “Stickman's” house, balanced on logs, chased them around on their balance bikes, helped them climb small trees, picnic'd on the lawn of Hardwick Hall and generally had fun with both!! A very satisfying enjoyable day. Just short of 5 miles walked, calories over, but no binging!exercise.png

    5/8 134.6 – 10.93 miles walked, did afternoon tea for SIL's birthday, hence Calories 101 over. (No binging though & did exercise control over portions!) DGS slightly improved again.
    5/9 134.2 – 6..82 miles walked yesterday despite the rain! Caloires just in green, carbs over due to pizza night.
    5/10
    5/11



    KEEP SAFE EVERYONE :). Keep calm – we're all in this together!
