    @dawnbgethealthy Thanks for the great tips! I don't know how you find the time! You exercise so consistently (sometimes for hours) , have held down up to 5 jobs at a time, and work diligently in your garden. You are my superhero and your ability to get to the 130's is so admirable! I'm glad we are "friends". [/quote]

    Lol. Well, prepping food and pre-logging definitely saves me time. Some of my burned calories are from at work. Some were indeed from hours doing yardwork/gardening once I quit a bunch of jobs, I was very late in planting this year. I do try to get a minimum 10-20 minutes of some sort of dance workout in the mornings, it gives me energy for the rest of the day and balances my emotions.
    Now to get on top of my weight before it gets out of control like my garden did.
    You are doing amazing with your weight loss journey! I am glad that we are friends too : - )

    July starting weight: 184.8
    July goal: 182

    7/1 - 184.8 a new "low" on this journey down. A little scary starting the month with a low as I bounce up and down many times during the month.
    7/2 - 185.2 slight bounce up, but it's ok. Fireworks tonight!
    7/3 -
    7/4 - 187.0

    7/5 - 188.0 ugh daily jumps but back on track today. It's fluid retention but it'll still take all week to shed.
    7/6 - 187.0 off to the Y today for a run and some weight machines. I think dinner is going to be a hunk of meat and a veg.
    7/7 - 186.2 my silly scale gave me 185.2 2x, then on the 3rd jumped up a pound and stayed there for 2 more times. So I'm going with the higher even though I liked the first number much better. I go with whatever number displays 3x, first lol. No run yesterday, the lovely FL hurricane is affecting air pressure, which bothers my 4 and 6 year old fractures in my left foot and leg...didn't even know I hurt until I tried running. I did walk though, and used the rowing machine. Will walk again today, either on the treadmill or outside if it doesn't rain.
    7/8 - 185.4 didn't walk yesterday, worked too late. Still struggling with putting myself higher on the priority list. Raining today, still achy...
    7/9 - 185.4 I'll take it as a win today. TGIF!!
    7/10 - 185.4 at least I'm being consistent and not bouncing lol Happy weekend!!
    7/11 - 187.0 guess I got slapped for yesterday's comment lol

    7/12 - 187.2 ok, gotta control weekends. I have a work conference in mid-September and none of my work clothes fit! I have a deadline and need a solid loss.
    7/13 - 186.6 got a run in last night, planning on the Y today
    7/14 - 186.0 planning a walk today, either outside or inside if it rains. So over all the rain...10 days of it and it makes my old bone breaks hurt.

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.


    Starting Weight (from June 30th): 196.4
    Goal: 191.4 (Five lb Loss):
    Ending Weight for Challenge:

    07/01 – 197.6 After a tummy illness which produced a false low weight, I think this is likely my true current weight. I did very well for an old gal in June. I hope to keep up the progress in July. Let’s make it happen my friends!
    07/02 - 198.6 My son’s birthday was yesterday. High calorie celebrations. Today I will be very careful as I have a very long trip tomorrow and there will be multiple meals out. Gotta get past this madness!
    07/03 - 197.8 I did pretty well yesterday and increased my movement a bit. Travel today. I expect the scale will be up tomorrow, but it will be temporary.
    07/04 - 199.2 I expected this after a very long day of travel. I am really going to have to make some selective choices and watch my quantities today to keep the scale in Onederland. Today is a food-driven American Holiday so I must really tip-toe today but I know I can do it. Happy Independence Day to all my American Friends.
    07/05 - 198.0 Okay then. Now I’m glad I kept the calories low on my 4th of July holiday! It pays off! Lots of stresses this week. Very big ones that is so bad I can barely sleep. By Friday all should be resolved. Praying for strength to stay the course until then.
    07/06 - 197.4 Busy day yesterday with lots of visitors so I didn’t get in any extra movement. Glad to see the scale down anyway. Today I travel and lunch will be Thai food. One of my all-time favorites and such a treat that the town I am going to has a Chinese-Thai restaurant. Scale may swell up from it in the coming days but I know the bloat will only be temporary so I am not going to sweat the small or the temporary. I can live my life and still be victorious. Setbacks make my journey a little longer, that’s all.
    07/07 - 198.0 Travel weight and restaurant lunch showing up on the scale this morning. Tonight will be leftovers so it may affect the scale tomorrow too. I plan on making adjustments to the overall day to make up for it. It rained all night and will be raining all day so outdoors are a no-go. Expecting a worker here today anyway. I will try to use my stairs to get in some steps with extra effort.
    07/08 - 198.4 Uptick due to the leftovers from the Thai restaurant. Temporary weight. I’m not worried. I’ll pee it out LOL.
    07/09 – 196.6 It has been about 9 days since I was down to this approximate weight (June 30th). Finally all my travel weight, the restaurants, the car sitting is receding. Huge stresses this week also that only happen once or twice in a lifetime. Got through them without signing myself into the looney bin. I can’t say that it was completely successful, but just that it is over puts me back in the functional category. Finally 5 hours of sleep instead of 2 or 3 all week!
    07/10 – 197.6 Ouch! I’m not sure what happened. I took a short walk yesterday. My calories were not too bad but I did have some ice cream that was not sugar free. My bad. I’ll make today better.
    07/11 - 197.6 Calories were okay yesterday but the choices were questionable. I am going to work today at better healthier meals. I’ve got to stop being lazy about cooking. Sometimes I just don’t feel like messing up the kitchen! My workers didn’t leave until 9:00 PM. They will be back today.
    07/12 - 195.8 I think I am going to be in a good mood all day. I haven’t been this low in quite some time. Goodbye Covid-19 pounds!
    07/13 - 195.2 I got pretty hungry last night. I realized my calories for the day were still a bit low. Canned Organic Tomato Basil soup did the trick. It fit within my calorie budget and the liquid aspect of it filled my belly. High sodium though so I’m glad to not see a jump on the scale (especially since I ate it so late). Hopefully, with extra water, there will be no impact upcoming.
    07/14 - 196.0 Too much sodium lately. Last night my calories were a bit up at about 1550. My bad snack consisted of peanut butter filled pretzels with that big chunky salt on them. The day before was canned soup which usually makes me retain water. Today is a trip to the dairy queen with son & his friend. I must be reasonable with the DQ lunch and work it off later. Workers will be here later this afternoon so my privacy will be affected. I’ll walk in the yard, and also use my indoor steps to get in some form of workout.
