    I am donna from the Midwest USA. I am 61 years old, a cancer survivor, a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 6. I am Type 2 diabetic. I did well for awhile about 2 years ago but have relapsed pretty bad. I need to get it together and start making some progress. I am okay with baby steps or giant leaps forward, whatever it takes. . I just need to see start going in the right direction. I have other challenges in my life as well, but I want to stop letting them define me. I weigh on the 1st and last day of every month for a full month’s progress. I also weigh on Monday’s based on the starting date listed on the challenge. Let’s do this!

    Starting Weight on MFP: 253
    Current Weight: 208.8
    Goal Weight: 153.0 (or thereabouts)
    Goal for this challenge: 198.8
    Actual end of challenge weight: xxx

    Hi All!
    Hope your Monday weather is as good as mine in Upstate NY! This week has been pretty good. I usually have one weekend day/week that I don’t log in. I don’t go crazy that day, I just relax a bit more. It helps me stay on track the other 6 days. Let’s see if that keeps working…. 😬 Here’s my weigh in info:


    Starting date= 5/10/2021

    Starting Weight= 150.6 lbs.

    Goal weight= 140 lbs. (maybe 138) by 8/10/2021

    Week 1: 5/17/2021 weight= 149.6 lbs.

    Weight lost to date= 1.2 lbs.

    😊

    Today went well. Got out for 3 mile walk before getting called into work. Going to go to bed early to avoid snacking tonight. I met my goal of drinking more water then Diet Coke. Nice work everyone.

    Good morning!
    Worked a 12 hour shift yesterday. 9500 steps and not much time to eat. Met my goal of drinking more water then Diet Coke. Reminding myself throughout the day of why I need to monitor what I fuel my body with and importance of hydration.
    I need to do more meal planning so I have quick meal options for breakfast when I work (6 am start) and packed lunch.
    Have a great day. Kim

    Weight was trending down 1 lb after a quick drop and evening out. But today I'm back where I started. My plan is to just stop touching the foods that have been triggering these failures. After succeeding and maintaining for almost two years, I thought I was beyond this and could finally moderate all the things. Well, I have to re-learn moderation I guess, and for me this always starts with a short term elimination. Didn't want to be back in this place but, oh well, time to do what I have to do!
  • energyseekerenergyseeker Member Posts: 480 Member Member Posts: 480 Member
    You got this! @Niki_Fitz One of my comfort foods is ice cream. I think I’m going to buy those no sugar added fudgesicles for a occasional treat (only 40 calories and chocolatey.)

    I'm in the same boat as you. And I feel like this seems so much harder than the first time. In fact I've failed multiple times trying to lose this 10 pounds.

    May 24: 210.8 4 pounds in one week! Can you tell my daughter and DGS moved back in? It will be difficult separating meals. Traveling today. The car sitting and restaurant meals won’t help the situation. I’ll try to choose wisely but tomorrow I will be in focus for sure.

    Weight down 1.5 #. Must be all the extra hours I’m picking up at work because my food choices not so good past couple days. Off next two days. If weather cooperates I should be able to get more outdoor walking in.

    Hi I would love to join this challenge. My starting weight was 184, current weight is 171. Goal weight is 125 so I have a long road ahead of me. Taking it one day at a time and losing slow. Hoping for more than 10 pounds by August but would be happy with it. I could also use friends on here if anyone would like to add me. Good luck everyone!
