    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
    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.
    5/9 Well finally, I'm into to 144 range. If I can hold that, I'll be glad because it has been a slow process for that one dang pound loss in the past week!
    5/10 144 This is going to be my last round for now, I'll jump back in a few rounds from now. Tomorrow will finish up this 10 days, will I show an overall 10-day-loss? I sure hope so. I was getting pretty disappointed a few days ago. I didn't eat or drink enough today, I better at least get some more fluid into me tonight before bedtime.

    05/11 - 147.3 - Hey! Not only did I drop quite a bit from yesterday, but I'm below my start weight. Too bad I didn't get below last round's end weight, but it's been a rough one. I'm feeling heavy and bloated so the weight shocked me quite a bit. Hopefully the feeling won't last too long.

    Previous Day's Comments
    05/03 - I fasted 15 hours yesterday, which exceeded weekend goal. Today should be easy to hit 17hours. Drank over 90 oz (estimating about 100-105oz). Didn't do kickboxing workout last week at all so I'm making myself do it after this morning meeting whether I like it or not. I know I'll thank myself after. I'm weathering this storm. Need to get fasting back on track and regular. Need to focus on eating better. Weekends are always rough but I can control lunch this week and that should make an impact if I behave and stay mindful of goals.
    05/04 - My first thought was along the lines of "why do I even bother?!" as the scale didn't budge despite my efforts yesterday. Then I reminded myself that the scale doesn't always reflect what's really going on and I'm not worried so much about my weight as I am my health. Health first, weight is just a side effect of health. Fasted 18 hours, drank 100oz water and did not only my kickboxing workout, but a walk/run with the pup after! Food wasn't ideal for lunch but dinner was good! Been sleeping better since I've been using my herbal supplements (not melatonin!). Half a dose and I'm knocked out and feeling much more rested within an hour of waking up (disclaimer, I'm ALWAYS groggy/cranky and want to go back to bed when my alarm first goes off. But instead of being so for 2-3 hours, within an hour I'm pretty well awake and ready to go) May the Fourth be with you!
    05/05 - Starting to show a little progress. Feeling a tad bloated today so didn't expect a drop at all. 90 oz water, fasted 16hours. Got a walk in with the pup last night. Nothing major to report. Need to do some gardening today and head to the grocery store to stock up with more healthy lunch options.
    05/06 - Fasted just a few minutes shy of 19 hours, but only drank about 65oz water. My fault, I was distracted. Still happy to see a drop despite eating out last night. I was able to transplant all my plants to my raised garden bed, including my jalapenos which were still in the seed starter. I have green bell peppers and scotch bonnets still too little to transplant, but saved a little space for those guys. Got home when it was a tad too dark to take the crazy pup for a walk. I'd be more comfortable if she behaved better, but we are working on that. Slept horribly last night so don't know if I'll get my kickboxing workout in. Will try for yoga. Determined to make it a good day regardless of sleep!
    05/07 - Slow progress is still progress. Fasted 17 hours and had 90oz water. Took pup for a walk, checked in on my garden, and read. A lot of reading. Slept much better last night after I remembered to take my sleep supplements. So far, it seems to help a ton so long as I remember to take it.
    05/08 - DNP
    05/09 - Its okay, it's a tad bit of dehydration from working at the land and then Chinese food for dinner. I expected to be up. I did try my best to drink as much water and gatorade to keep up (gatorade was all we had on hand besides water and I knew I needed electrolytes with how much I was sweating). Both of us were so tired we couldn't handle cooking so we got Chinese since he wanted sushi/sashimi. Today is a lazy day, methinks, so I'm pushing water and getting back to my fasts (didn't really fast Saturday since I wanted to eat before I got too hot and lost appetite). Hopefully it'll all drop enough by end of round. So long as I behave. Happy Mother's Day to all my mom friends out there!
    05/10 - Inching back down despite the Mother's Day dinner we had, which I'm quite happy about. Fasted a tad more than 17.5 hours, drank 90 oz water. Just keeping on!

    We had Indian carry out yesterday — yummy, but a bit salty & caloric. Also raisin bread French toast for breakfast before I knew we’d be ordering, so.... I didn’t get my walk yesterday — by the time I finished digging in my new stone path, the wind had come up and it wasn’t very nice out, so I decided my digging and lifting would have to do. It’s lovely today, though, so I’m off in a few minutes for a walk by the river and then I’ll plant the few plants I have waiting. I see a big nursery trip or three in my future! I also ordered a bunch of native plants from the Botanical Conservatory sale and get to pick them up on Thursday. Yay! My garden is definitely one of my happy places.🌷🌻🦋🌹🌼🐞🌳 Also keeps me out of the kitchen. Have a lovely Sunday, all!

    5/03 - 188 - 1632
    Rainy day. Yesterday was gorgeous, and I finished laying the stone pathway and started planting between & along the pavers (bare beginnings, but I’m really pleased with it). Picture this, filled with flowers!

    5/04 - 188.4 - 2036🤯😳☹️
    Aacckkkk! I don’t know what got into me yesterday. Why in the world does grappling with how much I’ve gained make me eat more, even as I think about not needing the food? The struggle is real. Well, it’s a new day, and I’m determined to get my act back together. I need to get on a regular walking schedule (though I am doing better). And off I go now, before the rain.

    5/05 - 188 - 1332
    🇲🇽🥑🌮🍊Feliz Cinco de Mayo! I’m considering chicken fajitas to celebrate, but no cerveza! Yesterday was a good food day but for the death by chocolate ice cream last night — but total calories low, so ok. I bought a bunch of plants, so I guess I’ll be out digging in the dirt in about 5 minutes! Have a lovely, healthful day!

    5/06 - 188.2 - 1732
    Chilly morning here, rain coming in. I don’t mind the rain — we need it — but I’m much happier with a little warmth! I don’t care for gardening in the cold. I guess I could clean the house... Nah!

    5/07 - 188.4 - 1601
    Anyone else unable to log in all morning? Weird.

    5/08 - 188.2 - 1754
    Great weekend so far, aside from being a bit chilly. Picked up my plant order from the Botanical Conservatory sale, and off later this morning for a native plants sale. The lots of planting, weeding, pruning, & enjoying. Have a happy weekend!

    5/09 - 188.2 - 1751
    Rainy day, all day, and chilly. But the forecast is looking warmer, so all good. I did get some planting and weeding done yesterday, and went for a reasonable walk.

    5/10 - 188.2 - 1801
    “...the rain is gone...it’s gonna be a bright, sunshiny day.” I’m heading out for a walk soon, but my favorite part of the Rivergreenway is flooded, so I’ll try a new-to-me trail. And methinks it’s a good day for cleaning weeds and grass from remaining beds since the ground is soft. Burn a few calories!

    5/11 - 188 - 1549
    Well, not a fabulous round — pretty much a wash, which is ok considering my calorie average was 289 over my goal. See you in R150.

    3: 201.4 Indulged in bacon ranch pasta salad with supper. There's a reason I don't eat pasta! 🤦🏽
    4: 200.4 Going back down. Hopefully, a little chocolate with lunch won't be an issue. 😕
    5: 198.3 Guess the chocolate didn't hurt. Long fast today. So far, so good.
    6: 195.3 Now, hopefully I can stay on the right track and keep it in the 190s for a bit, rather than climbing back over 200.
    7: 196.7 Post-fast rebound. No worries. Seems to be the norm after getting for 36-40 hours. Hoping to stick to normal IF schedule over the next several days and keep calories and carbs at least mostly in check. With multiple sporting events for my kids and mother's day, I'm gonna be on the go a lot over the weekend.
    8: DNW Left home early for soccer games.
    9: DNW Not home
    10: 199.8 pre-TOM. Didn't do horribly over the last few days of being super busy, but could've done better.
    11: 199.8 pre-TOM. Didn't make my goal, but glad to be finishing in onederland.

    There's no such thing as failure; only feedback.

    Previous days

    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 over night 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!
    5/11 117.8 Oh hey salty weekend biting me in the butt and hormone fluctuations beginning. One good thing is that my husband is now on the healthier eating bandwagon, so hopefully, that’ll make life a little easier this weekend. I peeled a butternut squash this morning to go with dinner tonight and I think we’ll be having sirloin steak with it and some other vegetable or salad.

    @playhardkf2017 thank you very much for your advice! I had thought about the frozen meal idea and I think that’s a great way forwards. Takeaways you just never know what’s in them do you! It is usually spontaneous aswell either he’s really hungry and orders food or our plans change at the last minute so keeping some in the freezer is a good idea. Sorry to hear your husband is stressed I hope things settle down at his internship soon! Thank you again for your thoughtful reply ☺️

    It's so true about not knowing what's in takeout, especially with non-chain restaurants that may not list the calories on their webiste! I figure, at least I know I'm eating 800 calories in a frozen meal versus the unknown of possibly eating 2,100 calories with one takeout meal. Thanks for the less-stress wishes for my husband, he's in an occupational therapy internship/fieldwork full time with patients recovering after hospitalizations from Covid, spinal cord injuries, and many other issues... so he'll be happy at the end of June when he finishes and then in August when he takes his licensing exam. :) Have a lovely day!

    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 AW 116.8
    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.
    5/9 118.0 HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!
    5/10 117.5
    5/11 118.5 Great Greek salad with shrimp (4) and 1/3 pita. 1/2 of a pastry from the diabetic bakery - no sugar but still wheat flour. A friend raves about this bakery but ONE Danish for $2.95 that has no sugar and only about 1 teaspoon each of blueberries and cream cheese is not worth it. Very disappointed. Happy with bouncing around well under my various goal weights.

    See you all in Round 150 tomorrow!

    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 …..208.8 ….. Not a good round for me.

    05/10 …..208.8 ….. My birthday. I am actually celebrating next Sunday with my children. I was hoping to give myself a better present than my current weight gain. I was hoping to be closer to Onederland. However, its never a bad time to get healthy and lose weight so….Forward and Onward I go!

    05/11 …..208.8 ….. Really stuck. Better choices going forward. 90% doing well. I’ve got to work on the other 10%.

    My challenge this time is to lose 2 lbs and also to write a sentence each day on how the previous day has gone. I am a 52 year old woman with primary progressive multiple sclerosis which means my mobility is poor and my weight loss slooooooooooooow. But I keep going!

    Start weight (31 August 2020): 349.2 lbs
    Start weight for 149 challenge: 308.9 lbs
    Aim for 11 May 2021 (end of 149 challenge): 306.9 lbs

    5/2: 307.1 lbs - bit of a surprise to have lotst this weight, but I'll take it! It's a good start to this challenge for sure.
    5/3: 308.1 lbs - not bad, Monday morning and I had quite an indulgent Sunday. Determined to lose a good chunk of weigh on this challenge.
    5/4: 310.4lbs - that's a bit steep! I don't think it's real weight gain, but we shall see. Have been tracking and eating well, so here goes. Trying also to do squats and weights to keep moving.
    5/5: 309.8 lbs - coming down slowly - let's do this:)
    5/6: 310.9 lbs - it's very depressing that the harder I try this week the more my weight goes up. Never mind, am not worrying too much and just keep tracking and keeping under my goals and trying to exercise.
    5/7: 310.9 lbs - I had a good day as well! Pah, never mind

    5/8: 309.8 lbs
    5/9: 308.1 lbs
    5/10: 308.9 lbs - Monday morning and this stretch hasn't gone as well as I had hoped despite eating to goal and exercising. Fingers cross to at least not put on weight.
    5/11: 308.9 lbs - didn't make it, but didn't put on either....

    Challenge 137: lost 1.5 lbs
    Challenge 138: lost 2.6 lbs
    Challenge 139: lost 2.7 lbs
    Challenge 140: lost 1lbs
    Challenge 141: lost 2 lbs
    Challenge 142: lost 1.5 lbs
    Challenge 143: lost 1.7 lbs
    Challenge 144: lost 1.4 lbs
    Challenge 145: lost 2 lbs
    Challenge 146: lost 0.5 lbs
    Challenge 147: lost 1 lb
    Challenge 148: lost 0.2lbs

    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷
    May focus: improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale

    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
    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!
