    100 Days of Accountability 7/14-10/21
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 60, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 205 (7/13)
    Challenge Goal: <195

    History & Goals

    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 SW: 245 BMI 43.4 (1/2/2019) Lost 15 lbs in 2019 then regained 5
    2020 SW: 235 BMI 41.6 (1/1/2020) Then back up to 241 before refocusing in Aug
    2021 SW: 212 BMI 37.6 (1/1/2021)
    UGW: 165 BMI 29.2 Overweight NOT Obese
    🎯 Mini Goals & Weight:
    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * Onederland: 199
    * Weigh less than DH: 206 (April 2021) ✔️:)

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150's

    My goal for 2021 is to get into ONEderland and make it stick. Changing my life.
    Plans:
    🔹Find workout routine that works (walk, bike, planks, yoga, swim, strength training, take advantage of retirement to be more active); target walking 100 miles each month
    🔹Drink more water (target min 64-80 oz daily; start with 1 glass before coffee)
    🔹Journal Food Daily (tracking with MFP since 12/28/2018; basically skipped June-Dec 2019; recommit 1/1/2020; skipped out April-July 2020; recommit 8/6/2020)
    🔹Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)
    🔹Drink less alcohol (3 AF days per week; ~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)
    Day 1: Wed, 7/14: 207.0 Walked .9 + 1.75 miles, swimming, 1565 cal, 68 net carbs, AF. Hiking in Brazos State Park & swimming to entertain my daughter-in-law’s 5 yr old niece that is visiting. Came too close to an alligator! Wow that is a strange & disappointing jump up on the scale this morning! Could sweet potato fries do that much damage at lunch?
    Day 2: Thurs, 7/15: 207.2 Walked 4.5 miles, bike 30 min, squats, hand weights, cal, net carbs, 1 Torchy’s Tini. Chili for lunch and Torchy’s for dinner. Walked the dog to my home owners’ assoc. local lap pool (heated during the winter) to see if my key card still works which was much further than I thought but a nice walk (better than jumping in the car!). It is still active so I guess I need to consider adding swimming laps to my routine. The dog & I were both exhausted walking in the heat but we beat the rain! Need to make a point to get out earlier in the morning.
    Day 3: Fri, 7/16: 207.4 WI at 4am. Walk 2 + 1.3 miles, weeding/gardening, 2187 cal, 141 net carbs, AF (Neon Zebra margarita mocktail). Pizza for lunch & quesadillas for dinner. Need to clean up my meal planning.
    Day 4: Sat, 7/17: 206.2 Walk 1 + 1.3 miles, 1892 cal, 95 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.

    1st Week Goal Weight: 204.x Repeating goal until I hit it
    1st Week Actual Weight: 206.2 (7 day avg 206.1)
    1st Week Weight Loss: +1.2
    Not even close. I was at 205 the day before the challenge started and it should have been easy peasy to make a 204.x goal. But on day 1 my weight skyrocketed. Finally got it going back down. Now to continue breaking through that 205 barrier.

    Day 5: Sun, 7/18: 207.0 Walk 1.3 miles , 1511 cal, 83 net carbs, 4 glasses wine. Nice morning breakfast outside then farmers market with DD & her husband & dogs. A pretty lazy day but did throw out more stuff as I anticipate a possible move. Also sorted more of my kids’ medical, scouting and school records along with their birth, baptism, lifeguarding & other certificates to pass along to them. The idea of moving elsewhere away from the kids and all the community I’ve built up over the past 30 years in Houston is starting to stress me out. Drinking more, not paying attention to the meal planning, not sleeping well (dreams of what if) and in general riddled with anxiety.
    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 205.9 Walked 3.2 miles, 1480 cal, 76 net carbs, 4 glasses wine. Good day. Kids came over to cook burgers for lunch and chat.
    Day 7: Tues, 7/20: 207.1 Walked 3.25 miles, gardened, 1509 cal, 122 net carbs, AF. Lunch & dinner with friends first Thai and then Mediterranean so I’m assuming that this is sodium or hidden calories since I was in the green 246 calories yesterday. Plan is to stay on track today and drink LOTS of water.
    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 204.9 Walk 4.5 + 1.3 miles, bike 30 min, squats & hand weights, 1252 cal, 110 net carbs, AF. Big swoosh from yesterday which was an obvious sodium uptick. Now to keep this below 205 for the rest of the week!
    Day 9: Thurs, 7/22: 204.3 Walk 3 + 1.3 miles, garden, 1161 cal, 49 net carbs, AF. Tried Kombucha for the first time. Kevita sparkling Lemon Cayenne. Nice change of pace!
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 204.6 Walk 3.3 miles, garden, 1439 cal, 77 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine. Today I’m meeting an old friend to walk the paths on Buffalo Bayou downtown Houston, Cisterns tour, and picnic!
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: 204.5 Walked 2 + 3.4 + .6 miles Buffalo Bayou, 1564 cal, 101 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine. Wonderful active day! Closed all my rings plus overlapped the rings on the Apple Watch. 19550 steps!

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 204.x Repeating goal until I hit it
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 204.5 (7 day avg 205.5)
    2nd Week Weight Loss: 1.7
    Nailed it! 4 days in a row :)

    Day 12: Sun, 7/25: 205.0 Walk 3.2 + .6 miles, 1538 cal, 120 net carbs, AF. Grimaldi’s pizza … need I say more? Drinking water!
    Day 13: Mon, 7/26: 204.6 Walk 3.6 miles, bike 30 min, squats. plank & hand weights, 1649 cal, 64 net carbs, AF. Woke up too early and I was exhausted all day. Tried on every pant in my closet which was interesting. I’m pear shape size 18. I already threw out the size 20 & 22 pants. Put everything that was too small in another area to pull out when I’m 10 pounds lighter because though size 16 fits it doesn’t look great. I’m really apprehensive about this 1 hr Strong and Fit total body workout I signed up to take once per week. But I think it will be good for my bones & muscles as I age and hopefully it will help shape my legs, tummy and arms!
    Day 14: Tues, 7/27: 204.6 Walk 3.2 + .6 miles, 14200 steps, total body workout class 1 hr, 1552 cal, 103 net carbs, AF. Survived my first Strong & Fit class one-hour total body workout increases muscle strength and endurance by using light weights and high repetition. Lots of lunges, squats, planks and such with tons of arm movement. Sore this morning.
    Day 15: Wed, 7/28: 205.2 Walk 4.6 + 1.4 miles, bike 30 min, 2044 cal, 120 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Almost 500 cal in snacks during the day then changed dinner plans and went to a favorite Italian restaurant. Undid all my great efforts exercising in the morning.
    Day 16: Thurs, 7/29: 205.0 Walk 2.3 miles, swim 400m, 2171 cal, 84 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. I’m really starting to feel all the muscles in my body adding the strength training Monday and then swimming Wednesday on top of my regular walking dog 100miles/month and bike 1x/wk.
    Day 17: Fri, 7/30: 205.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walk 2 miles, long 5+ hr car ride, 11602 cal, 127 net carbs, AF. Got up and walked at 6am yesterday since I knew I was taking my mom to the doctor before driving to the camp. It all makes for a very long day.
    Day 18: Sat, 7/31: 205.4 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles, power washed the dock, 1789 cal, 108 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Took mom to the rehab center for her wrist and a lady behind us fell … took 3 people to get her up. Then neighbor at the camp fell hitting her head. She is 101 years old. Helped her until ambulance was able to make it out to our remote location. Then when her husband brought her back home he called again for me to help get her into bed. I did not sleep well. After seeing these 2 fall I REALLY want to lose weight. Being old, obese and not very mobile is not in my vision of my future. Ready to tackle August and lose more weight.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: <204
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 205.4 (7 day avg 205.1)

    Day 20: Mon, 8/2: 205.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walk .5 miles, fishing/casting for 3 hours and caught nothing, gardening digging up mom’s sago palm pups which is hard work, 1676 cal, 102 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not surprised … pizza for lunch & pasta for dinner. Fished in the morning and it was too hot to walk the dog in the afternoon. Headed back home today.
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3: 204.4 Walked 2.2 miles, long 5+ hr drive, cut and trashed large limb that fell out of neighbor’s tree into my yard while we were gone … plus cut the damage it made on my redbud tree, 1533cal, 81 net carbs, AF, tons of water. Behind on my walking toward 100 mile goal this week so I need to get walking.
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 202.8 Whoosh! Walked 3.1 + 2.2 miles, Bike 30min, 1552 cal, 71 net carbs, AF, guzzling water. Lightning when I got to the pool so delayed swimming laps until Thursday. Over 18000 steps today! All my rings closed and overlapped.

    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 203.7 Walked 1.3 miles then took the day off from other activity. 1404 cal, 56 net carbs, 2 wine. NOT enough water. DH & I were fasting for physical & bloodwork which went well. Then we went to Pappadeaux’s for a really nice lunch! Changed my plan for dinner … moved salmon night out to next Friday since I had not yet purchased the fish. I was able to take last night’s smoked chicken and make chicken salad wraps to go with our wine for a relaxing TGIF at home!

    4th Week Goal Weight: <204
    4th Week Actual Weight: 203.7 (7 day avg 203.9)
    4th Week Weight Loss: 1.7
    I’ll take it!

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 203.1 Walk 4.75 + .6 miles, Bike 30 min, 1569 cal, 68 net carbs, 3 wine. Tackled a long walk early in the day to make up for my lack of progress toward 100 miles in August AND try to get back down to 202.x.
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 203.2 Walked 1.4 miles, 1180 cal, 55 net carbs, AF. Books books books … reading & listening.
    Day 28: Tues, 8/10: 202.4 Walked 3.1 + .6 miles, Strength Class 1 hr, 1678 cal, 91 net carbs, AF.
    Day 29: Wed, 8/11: 202.2 Walked 3 miles, Bike 30 min, 1415 cal, 83 net carbs, AF. Started planning a road trip for October up to TN & NC! Ordered a couple of new pairs of shorts and a swim suit since both are falling off me … which doesn’t work well when going to the strength training class or swimming laps.
    Day 30: Thurs, 8/12: 202.1 Walked 3.4 + 1.3 miles, 1588 cal, 137 net carbs, AF. More planning for our trip this fall as well as making plans to remodel & repair our home.
    Day 31: Fri, 8/13: 202.0 Walked 3 + 1.3 miles, 1537 cal, 107 net carbs, AF. Switched up my daily nutrition goals and target calories. We’ll see how this plays out over the next week. My new bathing suit from Lands End came in yesterday! The size 16 fit! Yeah! I can get rid of my 1x & 2x bathing suits and swim laps today without flashing anyone. 🏊‍♀️
    Day 32: Sat, 8/14: 201.6 Walked 3.3 + .7 miles, swam laps 400m, treaded water 7 min, 1543 cal, 85 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Still eating more than the new target of 1300 cal but I’m definitely burning extra as well.
    Do you eat your exercise calories?
    I seem to eat at least half of mine each day usually as a snack. Trying to cut out the treats/something sweet after the meal but not successfully. This was never an issue before since I’m not a chocolate eater and normally ignore everything including ice cream but never ignore pie. Though for the last year … I’ve craved something sweet, choc and even ice cream … hmmm where did that habit come from?

    5th Week Goal Weight: <202
    5th Week Actual Weight: 201.6 (7 day avg 202.37)
    5th Week Weight Loss: 2.1
    Inching down a little each day/week toward 200! Next week is going to be really challenging since I have social events M-Th night at restaurants. I need to look up the menus and figure out a game plan.

    Day 33: Sun, 8/15: 202.0 Walked 3.2 miles with my DD & her dogs, 1808 cal, 100 net carbs, 1 glass wine. In the red calorie wise so not surprised by the uptick on the scale. Wedding shower which included cake then my kids came over for dinner. Definitely what I would call a food day though I spent most of the time talking to friends and family.
    Day 34: Mon, 8/16: 201.8 Walk 3 miles, Bike 30 min, 1325 cal, 113 net carbs (biscotti at breakfast & rye bread on sandwich blew my carb budget
    Day 35: Tues, 8/17: 202.9 Walked 3.4 miles, Bike 30 min, 1514 cal, 95 net carbs, AF. Book club. Chose wisely at restaurant (chicken kabob, tomato cucumber salad, 1/2 cup rice, water) and still got a bump up. This was the easiest restaurant for the week to plan & execute. First of 4 nights out. Hmmm
    Day 36: Wed, 8/18: 201.6 Walked 2 miles, Strength Class 1 hr, 1049 cal, 78 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Evening event where my dinner consisted of a few appetizers … mini crab cakes & pot stickers.
    Day 37: Thurs, 8/19: 202.9 Walked 3 miles, 1321 cal, 110 net carbs, AF. Uptick from pizza & tacos? Woke up thirsty with a salty taste in my mouth. Fasting this morning with DH since he has a liver scan today.
    NSV: Vanity sizing probably but I ordered pants and shorts for walking in a couple of different sizes along with the new swimsuit from Lands End. I’m sending back the XL pants & shorts and the 18 swimsuit! Keeping the L and 16. 😊 That feels good.
    Day 38: Fri, 8/20: 203.0 Walked 4 miles, Bike 30 min, 1590 cal, 76 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Cooking class with friends where we made Fruit Empanadas, Paella Mixta, Tortilla Española. Exercised and fasted through breakfast but obviously not enough. Expected bump up after 4 evenings in a row eating at restaurants with friends. Gearing up for damage control and not let this be an excuse to continue to backslide.
    Day 39: Sat, 8/21: 204.6 Walked 4 miles, Swam 500m + treaded water 12 min, 2003 cal, 110 net carbs, 3 glasses wine, >100 oz water. Great exercise day but snacked on way to many nuts, fries at lunch & rice at dinner. But wow the continued rise in the scale is worrying me!

    6th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! With 4 evenings at restaurants I would be happy just to stay below 202.
    6th Week Actual Weight: 204.6 (7 day avg 202.7)
    6th Week Weight Loss: +3
    Wrong direction. I need to turn this wagon around.

    Day 40: Sun, 8/22: 203.6 Walked 4.5 + .5 miles, 1568 cal, 71 net carbs, AF. Planning fall road trip and kitchen remodel. My best friend has Covid running rampant in her family that live in Sulphur Louisiana starting early last week. Her vaccinated uncle passed away Friday & her unvaccinated brother is in the hospital. Both of their families now all have it as well. My unvaccinated DIL’s 2 brothers (age 24) in Lafayette Louisiana got it last weekend. One brother had it last summer but this time it is much worse. They were around my son & his wife over last weekend but they are both vaccinated and tested negative. Scary how fast it hits & spreads.
    Day 41: Mon, 8/23: 203.5 Walked 3.2 + 1 miles, 1521 cal, 110 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lazy day.
    Day 42: Tues, 8/24: 203.7 Walked 3 miles, Strength Class 1 hr, 1656 cal, 156 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Cousin came in from Florida and we went to my sister’s for crawfish étouffée and wine … but I insisted on going to my exercise class before meeting up with them.
    No swimming laps for a couple of weeks since they closed the olympic size lap pool for maintenance.
    Thinking about signing up for twice per week strength classes in September to prep for hiking plans in Oct. The lunge part of the routine has made me much better at going up and down steps at home.
    Day 43: Wed, 8/25: 201.9 Walked 2.4 miles, 1255 cal, 117 net carbs, AF. Walked first thing in the morning, breakfast, donated blood & cleaned out a few kitchen cabinets … all before lunch! Then yard work and more cabinets in the afternoon.
    Day 44: Thurs, 8/26: 203.1 Walked 3.6 +1 miles, gardening, 1794 cal, 143 net carbs, AF. Errand day in the afternoon … library, dry cleaners, groceries, gas, and tried on tons of bras until I found my new favorite.
    NSV: New sports bras & bras ✔️(Aug 2021)
    Day 45: Fri, 8/27: 203.6 Walked 1.3 miles, 2108 cal, 135 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Scan of leg veins to determine swelling in one ankle + 1st shot of Shingrix (shingles) Vaccine. Needless to say eating fried chicken for lunch and then Italian dinner out did not soothe my feelings or help my progress on the scale. Rain and low energy yesterday and today.
    Day 46: Sat, 8/28: 203.0 Walked 3.2 + .7 miles, 1496 cal, 127 net carbs, AF. Headache & fatigue kicked my butt after the Thursday shingles vaccine … read & slept a ton. Feeling better this morning.

    7th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! But I would be happy just get back below 202.
    7th Week Actual Weight: 203.0 (7 day avg 203.2)
    7th Week Weight Loss: -1.6
    Posting a loss this week but disappointed since I let the 201.x slip away and I’m stuck at a higher weight than I wish. Back to the habits that work!

    Day 47: Sun, 8/29: 203.1 No Exercise … worked on design to remodel the entire downstairs of our house instead with DD who is a commercial interior designer. Structural engineer last week said it was possible to remove all the walls and posts that we considering as well open up the rooms to each other more than they are already. 2162 cal, 114 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.
    Day 48: Mon, 8/30: 203.0 Walked 3.8 + 1, 1402 cal, 81 net carbs, AF. Cancelled plans with friends to dine out since my friend’s family has many in the hospital with covid and DH was not feeling well. Finished reading The Forest of Vanishing Stars by Kristin Harmel.
    Day 49: Tues, 8/31: 203.7 Walked 3.25 + 1 miles, 1568 cal, 172 net carbs, AF. Walked to the library to drop off my book :) Then another short walk in the evening after dinner with DH. FINISHED my 100 miles for August! I’m walking on the 31st anyway. Scale bumped up due to terrible choices for meals … breakfast - waffles & sausage; lunch - spaghetti & salad; dinner - Salisbury steak w/ rice & gravy & green beans. Few veggies and lots of carbs.
    Day 50: Wed, 9/1: 204.6 Walked 2.4 miles, 2257 cal, 141 net carbs, 1 glass of wine. Slice of Berry Chantilly Cake on top of a late dinner. DH’s sister unexpectedly drove in to stay with us … celebrated her birthday which is Friday since we rarely see her and it was a treat. Not surprised that the scale jumped right up!
    Day 51: Thurs, 9/2: 204.3 No morning exercise, feeling blah, walked 1 mile in the evening, 1730 cal, 130 net carbs, 1 glass wine w/ frozen pizza. DH met with allergist over Zoom and he thinks we might have covid … constant headaches for days w/ fatigue, tightness in DH’s chest … prescribed Prednisone for DH. Went to 8 local pharmacies and they were out of the rapid covid test (BinaxNOW). Scheduled PCR Covid 19 test Thursday morning but won’t have the results for 2-5 days. Our son has a rapid covid test and is dropping it off today. Good news is that we are both vaccinated. Not sure where we would have picked up covid … restaurant? grocery store? My sister that is an elementary teacher? Moved trip to fishing camp out to the next weekend.
    Day 52: Fri, 9/3: 204.1 Walked 3 + 3.8 miles, 1588 cal, 116 net carbs, AF. Our son brought us a BinaxNOW covid home test kit … it was negative! So we both must have really bad colds since Sunday. The Prednisone is working for DH. Waiting for the PCR test results. Decided to skip strength training class this week since I didn’t want to expose the others in the class.
    Day 53: Sat, 9/4: 203.9 Walked 3.4 + 1.3 miles, 2026 cal, 159 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine.

    8th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! But I would be happy just get back below 202.
    8th Week Actual Weight: 203.9
    8th Week Weight Loss: +.9
    Not my best week. I can do much better.

    Day 54: Sun, 9/5: 203.9 Hiked 1.3 miles in Austin … time in a car 3 hrs both ways today, 1893 cal, 150 net carbs, <1/2 glass beer with lunch, 2 glasses wine with dinner.
    Day 55: Mon, 9/6: 203.2 Walked 3.1 miles, 1976 carbs, 194 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine.
    Day 56: Tues, 9/7: 202.6 Walked 3.1 miles, Bike 30 min, 1738 cal, 165 net carbs, AF. I went overboard eating not 1 but 3 cupcakes today that I made for my sister’s birthday. No more for me this week!
    Day 57: Wed, 9/8:
    Day 58: Thurs, 9/9:
    Day 59: Fri, 9/10: @ fishing camp 🎣
    Day 60: Sat, 9/11: @ fishing camp 🎣

    9th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! But I would be happy just get back below 202. Repeat until I hit either or both!

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds
    UGW 110-115

    This is my 7th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.0
    Round 5 loss 4.6. Round 6 - gain of 0.08
    24.8 pound loss over 601 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 7/14:132.2 - Wish that I had weighed this yesterday instead of 133.9 to end the previous 100! 312 in the Green
    Day 2 7/15: 132.2 - Usually my weight jumps around quite around a bit, nice to see that I didn't somehow gain. 489 in the Green
    Day 3 7/16: 133.1 - Had Beef Palak last night 803 in the Green
    Day 4 7/17: 132.9 - 390 in the Green

    1st Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    1st Week Actual Weight: 132.9
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 1994. Divided by the 4 days is 798.5, very close to my goal of having a 500 calories deficit each day (3500 calories in a pound, so shooting to lose 1 pound per week)

    Day 5: Sun, 7/18: 133.3 - owch. 616 in the Green
    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 133.9 - I didn't do anything to gain. I will keep plugging along though. I am working out of town today and have scheduled 2 visits with separate groups up there once I finish my work, and then another back here. Would have been nice to have a cushion since there will be drinks and snacks at all 3. 334 in the Green
    Day 7: Tues, 7/20: 132.8 - I have an evening shift today and a split shift tomorrow. I don't like eating so late, but I eat so many vegetables with my dinner that I don't eat before work so that I am not gassy lol. 906 in the Green
    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 133.3 - Late dinner, as tonight will be because of my work schedule. I really do know that eating late is a killer to my weight loss, but it is what it is. 391 in the Green
    Day 9: Thurs, 7/22: 132.8 - Bouncing around as usual. Of course i would rather be bouncing around in the 120s, hopefully eventually! 917 in the Green
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 132.7 - Late dinner last night again due to work schedule. 313 in the Green
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: 132.1 - Tonight will be late dinner again. 389 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 132.1
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 3866 - Average 552, so should have lost a pound and did.

    Day 12 Sun 7/25: 132.4 - My work schedule is posted, I am working the day shifts until Friday, eating dinner earlier will be a benefit to my weight loss I believe. 970 in the Green
    Day 13 Mon 7/26: 132.4 - I got a bunch of yard work done yesterday (drop in the bucket) even though it is smoky around here. 1070 in the Green
    Day 14 Tues 7/27: 132.2 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, dance workout to warm up, HIIT with weights to follow, gardening/yard time before work and after work, plus the 300-400 that I usually burn at work running around. Back to start weight. 217 in the Green
    Day 15 Wed 7/28: 132.1 55 in the Green
    Day 16 Thurs 7/29: 134.8 - Ouch 595 in the Green
    Day 17 Fri 7/30: 134.8 - Not happy about this of course, but taking it in stride. Hopefully my 500 deficit that I aim for will average out over the week, I haven't had time for workouts because of being wrapped up trying to fix my car issues. Spent the entire day yesterday buying a new one, but still have to deal with the dead one in the retail parking lot. On evening shifts for the next couple of weeks, so eating times are a challenge for me. 325 in the Green
    Day 18 Sat 7/31: 133.8 - Down a pound since yesterday, carved out time to work out. My body will just have to get used to eating late after work. 866 in the Green

    3rd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 133.8 - Gain of 1.4 this week, don't want this to get away from me.
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 4098


    Day 19: Sun, 8/1: 132.9 - My internal clock is off working evening shifts, glad to see a tiny drop. Last week was kind of disastrous on the scale. I had planned an indulgent day after tonight's shift, we'll see. 243 in the Green
    Day 20: Mon, 8/2: 133.3 - We had a bit of drizzle last night, hoping that it will help with the fires 574 in the Green
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3: 133.3 - 738 in the Green
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 132.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the evening shifts and late dinner. 374 in the Green
    Day 23: Thurs, 8/5: 132.8 - was planning some indulgence tonight after work, we'll see. 93 in the Green
    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 134.2 - Had wings last night, but also only 3 hours of sleep and water before weighing at 4am. I'm sure tomorrow's number will be better. Day off today, so will get lots of workouts and yard work done, not another day off until next Thursday. 371 in the Green
    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 134.3 - Wings again 468 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 -
    4th Week Actual Weight: 134.3
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 2861 - not enough to lose a pound

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 136.0 - Double ouch. So hard to lose it, and so quick and easy to put it back on. 675 in the Green
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 135.5 - It was so nice to eat dinner at a normal time. 1248 in the4 Green!!
    Day 28: Tues, 8/10: 132.6 - Ended up with evening shifts after all, on top of day shifts. Burned a tonne yesterday after an unexpected shift. Didn't finish dinner until 11:30pm. 590
    Day 29: Wed, 8/11: 131.7 - Very pleased with this, but will try not to get complacent after the huge jump in weight recently. Glad to see the drop a few days after the big calorie burn. Holding off on ribs for this month so far. 407 in the Green
    Day 30: Thurs, 8/12: 132.9 - I basically only had snacks and Mojitos with a friend, no dinner. 541 in the Green
    Day 31: Fri, 8/13: 134.0 - A couple of indulgent days. 146 in the Green
    Day 32: Sat, 8/14: 134.7 - Self-imposed. 781 in the Green

    5th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, seems a bit ambitious at this point, but going for it anyway
    5th Week Actual Weight: 134.7 - Saw the 131s once this week.
    Calorie Deficit totals: (Green on the Tracker) 4388 - enough to lose a pound.

    Day 33: Sun, 8/15: 135.9 - Had a good calorie burn yesterday, so expect a good drop over the next couple of days. No reason for the gain today, so last week is still tolling. It always takes a few days in either direction. 581 in the Green
    Day 34: Mon, 8/16: 134.4 - Working to get it down this week. 763 in the Green
    Day 35: Tues, 8/17: 133.9 - Doing a split today, so dinner will be late. 1193 in the Green
    Day 36: Wed, 8/18: 133.1 - Crazy amount of calories burned yesterday - A nice long workout in the morning and then a double shift waitressing where I burned almost 1000 calories running around - it was busy! Had a very late dinner. Normal dinners at normal times for the next 2 at least. 51 in the Green
    Day 37: Thurs, 8/19: 134.3 - Not enough of a deficit yesterday. 567 in the Green
    Day 38: Fri, 8/20: 134.9 - Disappointed for sure. I have a get together tonight, so am not expecting much of a loss for tomorrow morning. 232 in the Green
    Day 39: Sat, 8/21: 134.3 - I know my exercise numbers, but my food numbers will be guestimates at best, lots of snacks with Mojitos - nuts, crackers, cheese etc. Like 1 ounce of cheese or 4? 10 crackers or 50? I am editing now, I went in and overestimated on the snacks. I had burned 1050 (including cutting the grass, work, a work out etc.) so did have a bit of a buffer. 201 in the RED

    6th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - I keep plugging that one in. I was 141.1 on my birthday last year, aiming to have lost 10 pounds by September 20th.
    6th Week Actual Weight: 134.3
    Calorie deficit totals: 3186 - Not enough to lose a pound

    Day 40: Sun, 8/22: 134.7 - I was in the red yesterday, which has only ever happened a couple of times. 453 in the Green
    Day 41: Mon, 8/23: 135.6 - Had a great workout and a hike yesterday, even slept as late as possible because I have an evening shift today. Not sure where the spike came from, maybe left over from Friday or Saturday or both. 456 in the Green
    Day 42: Tues, 8/24: 135.1 - Sticking with the plan. 499 in the Green
    Day 43: Wed, 8/25: 136.4 - Last November's weight : - ( 710 in the Green
    Day 44: Thurs, 8/26: 134.4 - Teeter tottering. 250 in the Green
    Day 45: Fri, 8/27: 134.8 - CICO was - just okay yesterday. I really don't lose weight if I don't have a 500 in the Green. 774 in the Green
    Day 46: Sat, 8/28: 136.5 - Ouch 486 in the Green

    7th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - I keep plugging that one in. I was 141.1 on my birthday last year, aiming to have lost 10 pounds by September 20th. Kind of unrealistic for this week, but aiming.
    7th Week Actual Weight: 136.5
    Calorie deficit totals: 3628

    Day 47: Sun, 8/29: 136.5 - Day off today, I will likely get in some extra activity. My last measurements were at 130.6, not going to be measuring right now lol. Pants are tight for sure. 580 in the green
    Day 48: Mon, 8/30: 137.0 - I have really been climbing these past 2 months. Not feeling good about that.
    Day 49: Tues, 8/31: 134.7 - Late dinner last night and will be again tonight because I am working a split. I should be happy to see this drop, but am not. I really started the weight climb in July. I will have to turn it around. 1146 in the Green
    Day 50: Wed, 9/1: 134.0 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, more than I actually ate!. Double shift, workouts. August is gone and I did not even have Ribs because I am unwilling to stop fighting the battle of the bugle. Halfway mark today, and I am up almost 2 pounds from the start of the 100. Expecting a good drop tomorrow morning reflecting yesterday's huge calorie burn. 951 in the Green
    Day 51: Thurs, 9/2: 133.9 - Kind of expected a bigger drop today after cutting the grass, yardwork, workouts, work, and low calories. I haven't had Ribs since July and was thinking that I might have some tonight if my weight was down more. I get a really good discount on Indian Food at the restaurant, but I have been avoiding that as well. Had a bit of a Eureka moment talking to a friend yesterday, I lose most of my weight for the year during skating season - I burn lots of calories and keep my food pretty good year round, is it the joy that skating gives me that changes the chemistry in my body? Or is it that I love skating so much that I do it for longer than other things. Not sure, but have decided to not beat myself up that the weight isn't coming off right now. 377 in the RED
    Day 52: Fri, 9/3: 135.3 - Ribs last night. Memphis Dry Rub. Soooo yummy. I may pay for that on the scale for awhile, but it was kind of worth it. 693 in the Green
    Day 53: Sat, 9/4: 135.8 - expected to see a Ribs uptick for a couple of days, I'm okay with it. 724 in the Green

    8th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - plugging it in again, someday I will hit it, I hit 130.6 last 100
    8th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Calorie deficit totals: 4305 - enough to lose a pound and I came close to that, 0.7 off of day 47

    Day 54: Sun, 9/5: 136.3 - Still the aftermath of the Ribs? I was "good" yesterday. 352 in the Green
    Day 55: Mon, 9/6: 135.5 - Better. Still paying for Thursday's Ribs, but I am okay with that. 790 in the Green
    Day 56: Tues, 9/7: 135.2 No woosh, but steadily coming down
    Day 57: Wed, 9/8:

    @dawnbgethealthy Thanks! I am feeling a little better today although I am not sure why! Doctor's today which always makes me nervous. It's for a general blood sugar check-up since it's been running dangerously high. I'm sure all this stress is going to hold me back from the improvement she wants to see, but I feel like there will be at least a little improvement! Coming after the holiday and after a bad week of travel and grief will not help my case, but I'll give her all my blah blah excuses (that's how she'll hear them, I'm sure!) and I'll probably have to see her again next month too. My motivation to stick to plan this week is to stay off of insulin shots. I can do this through diet and exercise! I've got to keep believing that and keep working toward that goal. Thanks for the well wishes.

    Day 46 – 08/28 …..188.4…..(Trend weight 188.4)
    Day 47 – 08/29 …..188.4…..(Trend weight 188.4) Hmmm….4 days in a row with the exact same weight and fat percentage. I had a very good day yesterday. I was in the green by nearly 500 calories on MFP. My fitbit stats were: 31 floors, 6.01 accumulated miles, 2681 Total calories burned, 74 minutes of added exercise including stationary bike and walking. All my circles were closed. However, I only slept 3 hours on the button last night and I’m sluggish again today. Not sure what is going on with all of this but I am just going to hang in there and let my body throw it’s tantrum before losing my own temper!
    Day 48 – 08/30 …..189.2…..(Trend weight 188.5) I’m not sure why I keep typing my weight wrong but I corrected yesterday’s today. Up again on the scale and I know it was my fault. I had a good compliant day but ate a couple of small snacks last night after logging that put me over (one of them salty). I’ll push water today, get in some walks and some exercise bike. Maybe even some dancing if I’m not too tired after my workers leave. Gotta stop this runaway train. It’s all part of the journey, I know, but I hate the bumpy parts of the road!
    Day 49 – 08/31 …..186.8…..(Trend weight 188.3) Finally I see the drop I’ve been looking for. Sometimes it takes more than one day to show up either way. I will work to have another good day. Yesterday no handyman but my drywall man was here for awhile. I had time to visit my 76 year old friend who misses me during these long reno projects. It was nice. I set up some doctor appointments for her, got some mail together for her (paid some bills etc) and called to have doctors renew some scripts for her that she had run out of. I’ve got to get over there more often to help her. She has a local daughter (a nurse!) and granddaughter but the job is not 100% getting done. She has shaking syndrome and can’t write anymore (among other things). It was nice to spend a couple of hours with her. Today I will try to get more movement in. I’ve been doing a little, but not a lot. I can do more.

    Actual Weight Loss in August (from July 31) ……………….. 6.0 lbs. Lost
    Total Accumulated Actual Weight Loss…..8.8 lbs. total lost so far


    Day 50 – 09/01 …..182.8…..(Trend weight 187.8) I find this weight hard to believe today. 4 pound loss overnight??? (After a 2.4 loss the day before???) My scale is reliable and I stepped on it 3 times but I don’t trust this and consider it a fluctuation. I did everything right. I had TM. I finally slept over 4 and ½ hours which is good for me> But that is a bit much. Traveling today and tomorrow. Plenty of sitting and restaurant food. I’ll be home each night and will keep up with the posts. Friday morning my scale reading will not be pretty but that is how I roll.



    Halfway Progress Report: …..Pounds Lost so Far: 10 pounds but I am skeptical. I’ll change this on Sunday to keep it realistic.

    Day 51 – 09/02 …..185.2…..(Trend weight 187.5) This weight seems much more accurate although I have yet more travel today getting an elderly friend to her neurologist downstate. I am going to take all my weight scale readings with a grain of salt until Sunday. That puts all the travel behind me and gives me a day or two to shed any water and get in a couple of walks or some movement after all the car driving. I will then change my 50 day progress and my MFP charts. Much more travel in the coming two weeks due to some of the cancer re-checks and MRI scans etc associated with the biopsy results. Still no definitive answers but the biopsy did not get to the margins like they had hoped and they are still nervous about possible problems. I am worried about seeing a breast surgeon? Why a breast surgeon? I guess the answers will come in the next two weeks. In the meantime, water is still flowing but I definitely can hear the pump running more often than it should. Kicking on & off during water requests way more often. I sure wish the well company would call me back. I just wanted to ask about that! I hate for my pump to burn up! Back to the weight…….It sure was nice to see myself so close to the 170’s for a split second. The low 180’s is a dream I didn’t see possible back on May 23rd & 24th when I weighed nearly 209 pounds. I touched the low 180’s yesterday for a flukey moment. I will revisit it again soon!
    Day 52 – 09/03 …..187.5…..(Trend weight 187.7) There are those extra calories showing up. I should have skipped that MASSIVE piece of cheesecake but no looking back! Back home and on track today. I plan a great day. 3 hours and 2 minutes of sleep last night. No enough water yesterday. No TMI today. Weigh in was less than 5 hours after my last food (that happens with so little sleep and such a long day). I suspect tomorrow will be better. Cement for the 80 foot set of steps down to the mailbox today is being poured by a company and being leveled by my handymen. Exciting day! I think the cabin I rent out is also being painted today unless plans changed while I was away. Progress…….
    Day 53 – 09/04 …..187.5…..(Trend weight 187.8) Yesterday I found out that my ex-sister-in-law that I’ve known for 46 years died of Covid in South Carolina. She was fully vaccinated and had just turned 64. She was immuno-compromised. Her daughter found her unresponsive in her home (she lived alone). She was alive, but was later determined to be brain dead. She was lucky enough to get a ventilator for a short time since they are scarce, but she was taken off all life support measures when it was determined she would never wake up and never go home. Please, even if vaccinated, mask up in those highly public places. More people love you and don’t want to lose you than you even realize. I spent all evening and night eating my emotions and moving into the 2nd phase of grief = anger. I am surprised the scale didn’t go up. Today I will try hard to be more mindful. The food binges changes nothing.

    Day 54 – 09/05 …..188.2…..(Trend weight 187.8) I’ve got to get this train back on track before my trend weight changes. Those numbers are harder to get movement on and I don’t want to deal with that too. I ate 400 extra calories after I closed out MFP last night which put me in the red. I hadn’t planned well and was hungry and looking for comfort too. I have regret today. Lots of phone calls and texting yesterday. Not as much movement as I could have had. Today is the BBQ at my DD’s house for Labor Day. I don’t want to disappoint anyone, especially my grandkids so I’ll probably go but I would rather stay here in my pajamas all day and allow myself to be sad and angry. I don’t need the scale’s loud voice screaming at me tomorrow, so I’ll try to watch it today. However, no guarantees at a large holiday gathering.
    Day 55 – 09/06 …..189.4…..(Trend weight 188.0) My well went out again this morning. Luckily I was able to complicate my handyman on his holiday and get him over to re-prime. Luckily my neighbor was gracious enough to let us use his hoses and spigot/water for the reprime, even though he has overnight friend and his girlfriend staying with them. Nothing like imposing on a bunch of very nice people! Scale is up again, cortisol levels are through the roof. 2 doctor appointments this week. Tomorrow for glucose that has been running dangerously high. The other involves travel to get 2 different CT scans (one with contrast and one without). This is for the liver check and the lung check due to some cancer concerns. Seriously, can things get any worse? Oh, yeah. And the funeral for ex-SIL is tomorrow halfway across the country. I can’t go and hate that too. Chin up Donna! The odds are in my favor that things can only get better from here. I’m going to start by having a great day full of movement and water (but not full of food). Have SOMETHING go right is what I need most right now. Control what we can, right?
    Day 56 – 09/07 …..187.2…..(Trend weight 187.9) I stuck to a 1002 calorie diet yesterday and added in some extra walking. It made the difference! Onward but not forward. I prefer downward.

    @deepwoodslady - Thinking of you this week with your scans for liver and lung. Hoping that you get a clean bill of health on those. As well as the glucose testing ... hoping the less carbs and sugar as well as the scale dropping below 190 pays off.

    @Lilylady3k A1C ended up better at 9.3 but she wants to see me at 6.9 at least. I've never been in the 6's except before I was diabetic so that looks more like a mountain than a steep hill. I'm going to try harder on those carbs/starches. Otherwise, it showed another over 4 pound drop on the scale even though I was dressed heavily compared to last month. I'm please with that and am going to grab that progress and run with it! I must admit I am worried about the lung scan specifically because it has become hard to breathe on my uphill walks or my hikes. I'll find out soon I suppose. Thanks to you and to everyone for the good vibes and thoughts.

    100 Days of Accountability 7/14-10/21
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 60, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 205 (7/13)
    Challenge Goal: <195

    History & Goals

    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 SW: 245 BMI 43.4 (1/2/2019) Lost 15 lbs in 2019 then regained 5
    2020 SW: 235 BMI 41.6 (1/1/2020) Then back up to 241 before refocusing in Aug
    2021 SW: 212 BMI 37.6 (1/1/2021)
    UGW: 165 BMI 29.2 Overweight NOT Obese
    🎯 Mini Goals & Weight:
    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * Onederland: 199
    * Weigh less than DH: 206 (April 2021) ✔️:)

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150's

    My goal for 2021 is to get into ONEderland and make it stick. Changing my life.
    Plans:
    🔹Find workout routine that works (walk, bike, planks, yoga, swim, strength training, take advantage of retirement to be more active); target walking 100 miles each month
    🔹Drink more water (target min 64-80 oz daily; start with 1 glass before coffee)
    🔹Journal Food Daily (tracking with MFP since 12/28/2018; basically skipped June-Dec 2019; recommit 1/1/2020; skipped out April-July 2020; recommit 8/6/2020)
    🔹Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)
    🔹Drink less alcohol (3 AF days per week; ~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)
    Day 1: Wed, 7/14: 207.0 Walked .9 + 1.75 miles, swimming, 1565 cal, 68 net carbs, AF. Hiking in Brazos State Park & swimming to entertain my daughter-in-law’s 5 yr old niece that is visiting. Came too close to an alligator! Wow that is a strange & disappointing jump up on the scale this morning! Could sweet potato fries do that much damage at lunch?
    Day 2: Thurs, 7/15: 207.2 Walked 4.5 miles, bike 30 min, squats, hand weights, cal, net carbs, 1 Torchy’s Tini. Chili for lunch and Torchy’s for dinner. Walked the dog to my home owners’ assoc. local lap pool (heated during the winter) to see if my key card still works which was much further than I thought but a nice walk (better than jumping in the car!). It is still active so I guess I need to consider adding swimming laps to my routine. The dog & I were both exhausted walking in the heat but we beat the rain! Need to make a point to get out earlier in the morning.
    Day 3: Fri, 7/16: 207.4 WI at 4am. Walk 2 + 1.3 miles, weeding/gardening, 2187 cal, 141 net carbs, AF (Neon Zebra margarita mocktail). Pizza for lunch & quesadillas for dinner. Need to clean up my meal planning.
    Day 4: Sat, 7/17: 206.2 Walk 1 + 1.3 miles, 1892 cal, 95 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.

    1st Week Goal Weight: 204.x Repeating goal until I hit it
    1st Week Actual Weight: 206.2 (7 day avg 206.1)
    1st Week Weight Loss: +1.2
    Not even close. I was at 205 the day before the challenge started and it should have been easy peasy to make a 204.x goal. But on day 1 my weight skyrocketed. Finally got it going back down. Now to continue breaking through that 205 barrier.

    Day 5: Sun, 7/18: 207.0 Walk 1.3 miles , 1511 cal, 83 net carbs, 4 glasses wine. Nice morning breakfast outside then farmers market with DD & her husband & dogs. A pretty lazy day but did throw out more stuff as I anticipate a possible move. Also sorted more of my kids’ medical, scouting and school records along with their birth, baptism, lifeguarding & other certificates to pass along to them. The idea of moving elsewhere away from the kids and all the community I’ve built up over the past 30 years in Houston is starting to stress me out. Drinking more, not paying attention to the meal planning, not sleeping well (dreams of what if) and in general riddled with anxiety.
    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 205.9 Walked 3.2 miles, 1480 cal, 76 net carbs, 4 glasses wine. Good day. Kids came over to cook burgers for lunch and chat.
    Day 7: Tues, 7/20: 207.1 Walked 3.25 miles, gardened, 1509 cal, 122 net carbs, AF. Lunch & dinner with friends first Thai and then Mediterranean so I’m assuming that this is sodium or hidden calories since I was in the green 246 calories yesterday. Plan is to stay on track today and drink LOTS of water.
    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 204.9 Walk 4.5 + 1.3 miles, bike 30 min, squats & hand weights, 1252 cal, 110 net carbs, AF. Big swoosh from yesterday which was an obvious sodium uptick. Now to keep this below 205 for the rest of the week!
    Day 9: Thurs, 7/22: 204.3 Walk 3 + 1.3 miles, garden, 1161 cal, 49 net carbs, AF. Tried Kombucha for the first time. Kevita sparkling Lemon Cayenne. Nice change of pace!
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 204.6 Walk 3.3 miles, garden, 1439 cal, 77 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine. Today I’m meeting an old friend to walk the paths on Buffalo Bayou downtown Houston, Cisterns tour, and picnic!
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: 204.5 Walked 2 + 3.4 + .6 miles Buffalo Bayou, 1564 cal, 101 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine. Wonderful active day! Closed all my rings plus overlapped the rings on the Apple Watch. 19550 steps!

    Day 13: Mon, 7/26: 204.6 Walk 3.6 miles, bike 30 min, squats. plank & hand weights, 1649 cal, 64 net carbs, AF. Woke up too early and I was exhausted all day. Tried on every pant in my closet which was interesting. I’m pear shape size 18. I already threw out the size 20 & 22 pants. Put everything that was too small in another area to pull out when I’m 10 pounds lighter because though size 16 fits it doesn’t look great. I’m really apprehensive about this 1 hr Strong and Fit total body workout I signed up to take once per week. But I think it will be good for my bones & muscles as I age and hopefully it will help shape my legs, tummy and arms!
    Day 14: Tues, 7/27: 204.6 Walk 3.2 + .6 miles, 14200 steps, total body workout class 1 hr, 1552 cal, 103 net carbs, AF. Survived my first Strong & Fit class one-hour total body workout increases muscle strength and endurance by using light weights and high repetition. Lots of lunges, squats, planks and such with tons of arm movement. Sore this morning.
    Day 15: Wed, 7/28: 205.2 Walk 4.6 + 1.4 miles, bike 30 min, 2044 cal, 120 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Almost 500 cal in snacks during the day then changed dinner plans and went to a favorite Italian restaurant. Undid all my great efforts exercising in the morning.
    Day 16: Thurs, 7/29: 205.0 Walk 2.3 miles, swim 400m, 2171 cal, 84 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. I’m really starting to feel all the muscles in my body adding the strength training Monday and then swimming Wednesday on top of my regular walking dog 100miles/month and bike 1x/wk.
    Day 17: Fri, 7/30: 205.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walk 2 miles, long 5+ hr car ride, 11602 cal, 127 net carbs, AF. Got up and walked at 6am yesterday since I knew I was taking my mom to the doctor before driving to the camp. It all makes for a very long day.
    Day 18: Sat, 7/31: 205.4 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles, power washed the dock, 1789 cal, 108 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Took mom to the rehab center for her wrist and a lady behind us fell … took 3 people to get her up. Then neighbor at the camp fell hitting her head. She is 101 years old. Helped her until ambulance was able to make it out to our remote location. Then when her husband brought her back home he called again for me to help get her into bed. I did not sleep well. After seeing these 2 fall I REALLY want to lose weight. Being old, obese and not very mobile is not in my vision of my future. Ready to tackle August and lose more weight.

Not surprised … pizza for lunch & pasta for dinner. Fished in the morning and it was too hot to walk the dog in the afternoon. Headed back home today.
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3: 204.4 Walked 2.2 miles, long 5+ hr drive, cut and trashed large limb that fell out of neighbor’s tree into my yard while we were gone … plus cut the damage it made on my redbud tree, 1533cal, 81 net carbs, AF, tons of water.

Then we went to Pappadeaux’s for a really nice lunch! Changed my plan for dinner … moved salmon night out to next Friday since I had not yet purchased the fish. I was able to take last night’s smoked chicken and make chicken salad wraps to go with our wine for a relaxing TGIF at home!

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 203.1 Walk 4.75 + .6 miles, Bike 30 min, 1569 cal, 68 net carbs, 3 wine. Tackled a long walk early in the day to make up for my lack of progress toward 100 miles in August AND try to get back down to 202.x.

    Day 29: Wed, 8/11: 202.2 Walked 3 miles, Bike 30 min, 1415 cal, 83 net carbs, AF. Started planning a road trip for October up to TN & NC! Ordered a couple of new pairs of shorts and a swim suit since both are falling off me … which doesn’t work well when going to the strength training class or swimming laps.
    Day 30: Thurs, 8/12: 202.1 Walked 3.4 + 1.3 miles, 1588 cal, 137 net carbs, AF. More planning for our trip this fall as well as making plans to remodel & repair our home.
    Day 31: Fri, 8/13: 202.0 Walked 3 + 1.3 miles, 1537 cal, 107 net carbs, AF. Switched up my daily nutrition goals and target calories. We’ll see how this plays out over the next week. My new bathing suit from Lands End came in yesterday! The size 16 fit! Yeah! I can get rid of my 1x & 2x bathing suits and swim laps today without flashing anyone. 🏊‍♀️
    Day 32: Sat, 8/14: 201.6 Walked 3.3 + .7 miles, swam laps 400m, treaded water 7 min, 1543 cal, 85 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Still eating more than the new target of 1300 cal but I’m definitely burning extra as well.
    Do you eat your exercise calories?
    I seem to eat at least half of mine each day usually as a snack. Trying to cut out the treats/something sweet after the meal but not successfully. This was never an issue before since I’m not a chocolate eater and normally ignore everything including ice cream but never ignore pie. Though for the last year … I’ve craved something sweet, choc and even ice cream … hmmm where did that habit come from?

    5th Week Goal Weight: <202
    5th Week Actual Weight: 201.6 (7 day avg 202.37)
    5th Week Weight Loss: 2.1
    Inching down a little each day/week toward 200! Next week is going to be really challenging since I have social events M-Th night at restaurants. I need to look up the menus and figure out a game plan.

    Day 33: Sun, 8/15: 202.0 Walked 3.2 miles with my DD & her dogs, 1808 cal, 100 net carbs, 1 glass wine. In the red calorie wise so not surprised by the uptick on the scale. Wedding shower which included cake then my kids came over for dinner. Definitely what I would call a food day though I spent most of the time talking to friends and family.
    Day 34: Mon, 8/16: 201.8 Walk 3 miles, Bike 30 min, 1325 cal, 113 net carbs (biscotti at breakfast & rye bread on sandwich blew my carb budget
    Day 35: Tues, 8/17: 202.9 Walked 3.4 miles, Bike 30 min, 1514 cal, 95 net carbs, AF. Book club. Chose wisely at restaurant (chicken kabob, tomato cucumber salad, 1/2 cup rice, water) and still got a bump up. This was the easiest restaurant for the week to plan & execute. First of 4 nights out. Hmmm
    Day 36: Wed, 8/18: 201.6 Walked 2 miles, Strength Class 1 hr, 1049 cal, 78 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Evening event where my dinner consisted of a few appetizers … mini crab cakes & pot stickers.
    Day 37: Thurs, 8/19: 202.9 Walked 3 miles, 1321 cal, 110 net carbs, AF. Uptick from pizza & tacos? Woke up thirsty with a salty taste in my mouth. Fasting this morning with DH since he has a liver scan today.
    NSV: Vanity sizing probably but I ordered pants and shorts for walking in a couple of different sizes along with the new swimsuit from Lands End. I’m sending back the XL pants & shorts and the 18 swimsuit! Keeping the L and 16. 😊 That feels good.
    Day 38: Fri, 8/20: 203.0 Walked 4 miles, Bike 30 min, 1590 cal, 76 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Cooking class with friends where we made Fruit Empanadas, Paella Mixta, Tortilla Española. Exercised and fasted through breakfast but obviously not enough. Expected bump up after 4 evenings in a row eating at restaurants with friends. Gearing up for damage control and not let this be an excuse to continue to backslide.
    Day 39: Sat, 8/21: 204.6 Walked 4 miles, Swam 500m + treaded water 12 min, 2003 cal, 110 net carbs, 3 glasses wine, >100 oz water. Great exercise day but snacked on way to many nuts, fries at lunch & rice at dinner. But wow the continued rise in the scale is worrying me!

    6th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! With 4 evenings at restaurants I would be happy just to stay below 202.
    6th Week Actual Weight: 204.6 (7 day avg 202.7)

    Wrong direction. I need to turn this wagon around.

    Day 40: Sun, 8/22: 203.6 Walked 4.5 + .5 miles, 1568 cal, 71 net carbs, AF. Planning fall road trip and kitchen remodel. My best friend has Covid running rampant in her family that live in Sulphur Louisiana starting early last week. Her vaccinated uncle passed away Friday & her unvaccinated brother is in the hospital. Both of their families now all have it as well. My unvaccinated DIL’s 2 brothers (age 24) in Lafayette Louisiana got it last weekend. One brother had it last summer but this time it is much worse. They were around my son & his wife over last weekend but they are both vaccinated and tested negative. Scary how fast it hits & spreads.
    Day 41: Mon, 8/23: 203.5 Walked 3.2 + 1 miles, 1521 cal, 110 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lazy day.
    Day 42: Tues, 8/24: 203.7 Walked 3 miles, Strength Class 1 hr, 1656 cal, 156 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Cousin came in from Florida and we went to my sister’s for crawfish étouffée and wine … but I insisted on going to my exercise class before meeting up with them.
    No swimming laps for a couple of weeks since they closed the olympic size lap pool for maintenance.
    Thinking about signing up for twice per week strength classes in September to prep for hiking plans in Oct. The lunge part of the routine has made me much better at going up and down steps at home.
    Day 43: Wed, 8/25: 201.9 Walked 2.4 miles, 1255 cal, 117 net carbs, AF. Walked first thing in the morning, breakfast, donated blood & cleaned out a few kitchen cabinets … all before lunch! Then yard work and more cabinets in the afternoon.
    Day 44: Thurs, 8/26: 203.1 Walked 3.6 +1 miles, gardening, 1794 cal, 143 net carbs, AF. Errand day in the afternoon … library, dry cleaners, groceries, gas, and tried on tons of bras until I found my new favorite.

    Day 45: Fri, 8/27: 203.6 Walked 1.3 miles, 2108 cal, 135 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Scan of leg veins to determine swelling in one ankle + 1st shot of Shingrix (shingles) Vaccine. Needless to say eating fried chicken for lunch and then Italian dinner out did not soothe my feelings or help my progress on the scale. Rain and low energy yesterday and today.
    Day 46: Sat, 8/28: 203.0 Walked 3.2 + .7 miles, 1496 cal, 127 net carbs, AF. Headache & fatigue kicked my butt after the Thursday shingles vaccine … read & slept a ton. Feeling better this morning.

    7th Week Actual Weight: 203.0 (7 day avg 203.2)
    7th Week Weight Loss: -1.6
    Posting a loss this week but disappointed since I let the 201.x slip away and I’m stuck at a higher weight than I wish. Back to the habits that work!

    Day 47: Sun, 8/29: 203.1 No Exercise … worked on design to remodel the entire downstairs of our house instead with DD who is a commercial interior designer. Structural engineer last week said it was possible to remove all the walls and posts that we considering as well open up the rooms to each other more than they are already. 2162 cal, 114 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.
    Day 48: Mon, 8/30: 203.0 Walked 3.8 + 1, 1402 cal, 81 net carbs, AF. Cancelled plans with friends to dine out since my friend’s family has many in the hospital with covid and DH was not feeling well. Finished reading The Forest of Vanishing Stars by Kristin Harmel.
    Day 49: Tues, 8/31: 203.7 Walked 3.25 + 1 miles, 1568 cal, 172 net carbs, AF. Walked to the library to drop off my book :) Then another short walk in the evening after dinner with DH. FINISHED my 100 miles for August! I’m walking on the 31st anyway. Scale bumped up due to terrible choices for meals … breakfast - waffles & sausage; lunch - spaghetti & salad; dinner - Salisbury steak w/ rice & gravy & green beans. Few veggies and lots of carbs.
    Day 50: Wed, 9/1: 204.6 Walked 2.4 miles, 2257 cal, 141 net carbs, 1 glass of wine. Slice of Berry Chantilly Cake on top of a late dinner. DH’s sister unexpectedly drove in to stay with us … celebrated her birthday which is Friday since we rarely see her and it was a treat. Not surprised that the scale jumped right up!
    Day 51: Thurs, 9/2: 204.3 No morning exercise, feeling blah, walked 1 mile in the evening, 1730 cal, 130 net carbs, 1 glass wine w/ frozen pizza. DH met with allergist over Zoom and he thinks we might have covid … constant headaches for days w/ fatigue, tightness in DH’s chest … prescribed Prednisone for DH. Went to 8 local pharmacies and they were out of the rapid covid test (BinaxNOW). Scheduled PCR Covid 19 test Thursday morning but won’t have the results for 2-5 days. Our son has a rapid covid test and is dropping it off today. Good news is that we are both vaccinated. Not sure where we would have picked up covid … restaurant? grocery store? My sister that is an elementary teacher? Moved trip to fishing camp out to the next weekend.
    Day 52: Fri, 9/3: 204.1 Walked 3 + 3.8 miles, 1588 cal, 116 net carbs, AF. Our son brought us a BinaxNOW covid home test kit … it was negative! So we both must have really bad colds since Sunday. The Prednisone is working for DH. Waiting for the PCR test results. Decided to skip strength training class this week since I didn’t want to expose the others in the class.
    Day 53: Sat, 9/4: 203.9 Walked 3.4 + 1.3 miles, 2026 cal, 159 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine.

The neighborhood olympic size lap pool reopened after being closed for 2 weeks for maintenance! Remaining calories in the green! This has been a tough 10 days with 6 in the red and only 4 in the green. No wonder I was gaining weight. Turning that ship around and focusing on staying in the green.

    @deepwoodslady - Thinking of you this week with your scans for liver and lung. Hoping that you get a clean bill of health on those. As well as the glucose testing ... hoping the less carbs and sugar as well as the scale dropping below 190 pays off.

    @Lilylady3k A1C ended up better at 9.3 but she wants to see me at 6.9 at least. I've never been in the 6's except before I was diabetic so that looks more like a mountain than a steep hill. I'm going to try harder on those carbs/starches. Otherwise, it showed another over 4 pound drop on the scale even though I was dressed heavily compared to last month. I'm please with that and am going to grab that progress and run with it! I must admit I am worried about the lung scan specifically because it has become hard to breathe on my uphill walks or my hikes. I'll find out soon I suppose. Thanks to you and to everyone for the good vibes and thoughts.

    @deepwoodslady - Wonderful that the weight dropped and the A1c as well. So no insulin treatment. I imagine that the 6s does seem like a mountain. When my doc started doing A1c in addition to Glucose I was curious about the difference. She said that what I did before seeing her the couple of days leading up to the appt would show in the Glucose, but the A1c gave her the last 3 months picture. So before focusing on lower carbs on a regular basis I could get the Glucose to drop but had a much harder time with the A1c. I love pasta, bread, rice, pastries, potatoes, etc ... seems every meal every day included one of those. Now I limit them but well darn. She advised me to not focus on Keto because of family history of stroke. Instead she said to study up on the Mediterranean diet style.

    What has your doctor advised? Any particular diet? Has she advised you to walk daily? Does she have you on meds that help without going to the insulin. My SIL is on some pill or another which helped her, walks daily, dropped 50 lbs last year ... she says that her doc was happy to see that but that now she'll fit in the seats for the rides at Disney next year LOL. I have two friends that have diabetes that were advised by their doctors to walk 3-5 miles per day to ward off the negative effects (one of the reasons I try for 3 miles per day myself).
    Interesting list of medications pros/cons that might give you some alternatives ... of course doctor not google knows best! LOL
    https://mymedicalscore.com/hemoglobin-a1c-levels/9-3/

    Glad that you are getting the lung scan especially if your breathing is more difficult. My sister was coughing all the time when cancer spread from breast to lung and again when it reappeared in her other lung. She didn't notice the coughing as much ... but I did and pointed it out for over a year before she went to the doc. In fact the first time before she was diagnosed with breast cancer I was looking up whooping cough and everything else trying to figure it out. Then 10 years later when she started coughing again I pressed her to chat with her oncologist about it and they found a very small growth in her other lung that was easily addressed. She refuses to go to doctors but sees her oncologist at least 2-4 times per year ... 14 year survivor. I'm working on her to visit with my regular doctor for a physical to check all her blood counts and pursue treatment for her knee issue, scoliosis, etc since she can't walk up and down stairs ... but she is hard headed.

    Thinking of you and rooting for you to beat this!

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds
    UGW 110-115

    This is my 7th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.0
    Round 5 loss 4.6. Round 6 - gain of 0.08
    24.8 pound loss over 601 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 7/14:132.2 - Wish that I had weighed this yesterday instead of 133.9 to end the previous 100! 312 in the Green
    Day 2 7/15: 132.2 - Usually my weight jumps around quite around a bit, nice to see that I didn't somehow gain. 489 in the Green
    Day 3 7/16: 133.1 - Had Beef Palak last night 803 in the Green
    Day 4 7/17: 132.9 - 390 in the Green

    1st Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    1st Week Actual Weight: 132.9
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 1994. Divided by the 4 days is 798.5, very close to my goal of having a 500 calories deficit each day (3500 calories in a pound, so shooting to lose 1 pound per week)

    Day 5: Sun, 7/18: 133.3 - owch. 616 in the Green
    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 133.9 - I didn't do anything to gain. I will keep plugging along though. I am working out of town today and have scheduled 2 visits with separate groups up there once I finish my work, and then another back here. Would have been nice to have a cushion since there will be drinks and snacks at all 3. 334 in the Green
    Day 7: Tues, 7/20: 132.8 - I have an evening shift today and a split shift tomorrow. I don't like eating so late, but I eat so many vegetables with my dinner that I don't eat before work so that I am not gassy lol. 906 in the Green
    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 133.3 - Late dinner, as tonight will be because of my work schedule. I really do know that eating late is a killer to my weight loss, but it is what it is. 391 in the Green
    Day 9: Thurs, 7/22: 132.8 - Bouncing around as usual. Of course i would rather be bouncing around in the 120s, hopefully eventually! 917 in the Green
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 132.7 - Late dinner last night again due to work schedule. 313 in the Green
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: 132.1 - Tonight will be late dinner again. 389 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 132.1
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 3866 - Average 552, so should have lost a pound and did.

    Day 12 Sun 7/25: 132.4 - My work schedule is posted, I am working the day shifts until Friday, eating dinner earlier will be a benefit to my weight loss I believe. 970 in the Green
    Day 13 Mon 7/26: 132.4 - I got a bunch of yard work done yesterday (drop in the bucket) even though it is smoky around here. 1070 in the Green
    Day 14 Tues 7/27: 132.2 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, dance workout to warm up, HIIT with weights to follow, gardening/yard time before work and after work, plus the 300-400 that I usually burn at work running around. Back to start weight. 217 in the Green
    Day 15 Wed 7/28: 132.1 55 in the Green
    Day 16 Thurs 7/29: 134.8 - Ouch 595 in the Green
    Day 17 Fri 7/30: 134.8 - Not happy about this of course, but taking it in stride. Hopefully my 500 deficit that I aim for will average out over the week, I haven't had time for workouts because of being wrapped up trying to fix my car issues. Spent the entire day yesterday buying a new one, but still have to deal with the dead one in the retail parking lot. On evening shifts for the next couple of weeks, so eating times are a challenge for me. 325 in the Green
    Day 18 Sat 7/31: 133.8 - Down a pound since yesterday, carved out time to work out. My body will just have to get used to eating late after work. 866 in the Green

    3rd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 133.8 - Gain of 1.4 this week, don't want this to get away from me.
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 4098


    Day 19: Sun, 8/1: 132.9 - My internal clock is off working evening shifts, glad to see a tiny drop. Last week was kind of disastrous on the scale. I had planned an indulgent day after tonight's shift, we'll see. 243 in the Green
    Day 20: Mon, 8/2: 133.3 - We had a bit of drizzle last night, hoping that it will help with the fires 574 in the Green
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3: 133.3 - 738 in the Green
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 132.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the evening shifts and late dinner. 374 in the Green
    Day 23: Thurs, 8/5: 132.8 - was planning some indulgence tonight after work, we'll see. 93 in the Green
    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 134.2 - Had wings last night, but also only 3 hours of sleep and water before weighing at 4am. I'm sure tomorrow's number will be better. Day off today, so will get lots of workouts and yard work done, not another day off until next Thursday. 371 in the Green
    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 134.3 - Wings again 468 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 -
    4th Week Actual Weight: 134.3
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 2861 - not enough to lose a pound

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 136.0 - Double ouch. So hard to lose it, and so quick and easy to put it back on. 675 in the Green
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 135.5 - It was so nice to eat dinner at a normal time. 1248 in the4 Green!!
    Day 28: Tues, 8/10: 132.6 - Ended up with evening shifts after all, on top of day shifts. Burned a tonne yesterday after an unexpected shift. Didn't finish dinner until 11:30pm. 590
    Day 29: Wed, 8/11: 131.7 - Very pleased with this, but will try not to get complacent after the huge jump in weight recently. Glad to see the drop a few days after the big calorie burn. Holding off on ribs for this month so far. 407 in the Green
    Day 30: Thurs, 8/12: 132.9 - I basically only had snacks and Mojitos with a friend, no dinner. 541 in the Green
    Day 31: Fri, 8/13: 134.0 - A couple of indulgent days. 146 in the Green
    Day 32: Sat, 8/14: 134.7 - Self-imposed. 781 in the Green

    5th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, seems a bit ambitious at this point, but going for it anyway
    5th Week Actual Weight: 134.7 - Saw the 131s once this week.
    Calorie Deficit totals: (Green on the Tracker) 4388 - enough to lose a pound.

    Day 33: Sun, 8/15: 135.9 - Had a good calorie burn yesterday, so expect a good drop over the next couple of days. No reason for the gain today, so last week is still tolling. It always takes a few days in either direction. 581 in the Green
    Day 34: Mon, 8/16: 134.4 - Working to get it down this week. 763 in the Green
    Day 35: Tues, 8/17: 133.9 - Doing a split today, so dinner will be late. 1193 in the Green
    Day 36: Wed, 8/18: 133.1 - Crazy amount of calories burned yesterday - A nice long workout in the morning and then a double shift waitressing where I burned almost 1000 calories running around - it was busy! Had a very late dinner. Normal dinners at normal times for the next 2 at least. 51 in the Green
    Day 37: Thurs, 8/19: 134.3 - Not enough of a deficit yesterday. 567 in the Green
    Day 38: Fri, 8/20: 134.9 - Disappointed for sure. I have a get together tonight, so am not expecting much of a loss for tomorrow morning. 232 in the Green
    Day 39: Sat, 8/21: 134.3 - I know my exercise numbers, but my food numbers will be guestimates at best, lots of snacks with Mojitos - nuts, crackers, cheese etc. Like 1 ounce of cheese or 4? 10 crackers or 50? I am editing now, I went in and overestimated on the snacks. I had burned 1050 (including cutting the grass, work, a work out etc.) so did have a bit of a buffer. 201 in the RED

    6th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - I keep plugging that one in. I was 141.1 on my birthday last year, aiming to have lost 10 pounds by September 20th.
    6th Week Actual Weight: 134.3
    Calorie deficit totals: 3186 - Not enough to lose a pound

    Day 40: Sun, 8/22: 134.7 - I was in the red yesterday, which has only ever happened a couple of times. 453 in the Green
    Day 41: Mon, 8/23: 135.6 - Had a great workout and a hike yesterday, even slept as late as possible because I have an evening shift today. Not sure where the spike came from, maybe left over from Friday or Saturday or both. 456 in the Green
    Day 42: Tues, 8/24: 135.1 - Sticking with the plan. 499 in the Green
    Day 43: Wed, 8/25: 136.4 - Last November's weight : - ( 710 in the Green
    Day 44: Thurs, 8/26: 134.4 - Teeter tottering. 250 in the Green
    Day 45: Fri, 8/27: 134.8 - CICO was - just okay yesterday. I really don't lose weight if I don't have a 500 in the Green. 774 in the Green
    Day 46: Sat, 8/28: 136.5 - Ouch 486 in the Green

    7th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - I keep plugging that one in. I was 141.1 on my birthday last year, aiming to have lost 10 pounds by September 20th. Kind of unrealistic for this week, but aiming.
    7th Week Actual Weight: 136.5
    Calorie deficit totals: 3628

    Day 47: Sun, 8/29: 136.5 - Day off today, I will likely get in some extra activity. My last measurements were at 130.6, not going to be measuring right now lol. Pants are tight for sure. 580 in the green
    Day 48: Mon, 8/30: 137.0 - I have really been climbing these past 2 months. Not feeling good about that.
    Day 49: Tues, 8/31: 134.7 - Late dinner last night and will be again tonight because I am working a split. I should be happy to see this drop, but am not. I really started the weight climb in July. I will have to turn it around. 1146 in the Green
    Day 50: Wed, 9/1: 134.0 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, more than I actually ate!. Double shift, workouts. August is gone and I did not even have Ribs because I am unwilling to stop fighting the battle of the bugle. Halfway mark today, and I am up almost 2 pounds from the start of the 100. Expecting a good drop tomorrow morning reflecting yesterday's huge calorie burn. 951 in the Green
    Day 51: Thurs, 9/2: 133.9 - Kind of expected a bigger drop today after cutting the grass, yardwork, workouts, work, and low calories. I haven't had Ribs since July and was thinking that I might have some tonight if my weight was down more. I get a really good discount on Indian Food at the restaurant, but I have been avoiding that as well. Had a bit of a Eureka moment talking to a friend yesterday, I lose most of my weight for the year during skating season - I burn lots of calories and keep my food pretty good year round, is it the joy that skating gives me that changes the chemistry in my body? Or is it that I love skating so much that I do it for longer than other things. Not sure, but have decided to not beat myself up that the weight isn't coming off right now. 377 in the RED
    Day 52: Fri, 9/3: 135.3 - Ribs last night. Memphis Dry Rub. Soooo yummy. I may pay for that on the scale for awhile, but it was kind of worth it. 693 in the Green
    Day 53: Sat, 9/4: 135.8 - expected to see a Ribs uptick for a couple of days, I'm okay with it. 724 in the Green

    8th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - plugging it in again, someday I will hit it, I hit 130.6 last 100
    8th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Calorie deficit totals: 4305 - enough to lose a pound and I came close to that, 0.7 off of day 47

    Day 54: Sun, 9/5: 136.3 - Still the aftermath of the Ribs? I was "good" yesterday. 352 in the Green
    Day 55: Mon, 9/6: 135.5 - Better. Still paying for Thursday's Ribs, but I am okay with that. 790 in the Green
    Day 56: Tues, 9/7: 135.2 No woosh, but steadily coming down. 787 in the Green
    Day 57: Wed, 9/8: 135.1 - On split shifts yesterday and today, so late dinners. Glad to still see a small drop. 7 days to get the Ribs off?

    I liked the advice that you gave on another thread, about putting the snacks in the tracker and adjusting elsewhere so as not to deprive yourself.

    Caleb (Fitness Marshall) says in that "Bad Habits" video that he can't NOT eat while watching TV.

    Day 46 – 08/28 …..188.4…..(Trend weight 188.4)
    Day 47 – 08/29 …..188.4…..(Trend weight 188.4) Hmmm….4 days in a row with the exact same weight and fat percentage. I had a very good day yesterday. I was in the green by nearly 500 calories on MFP. My fitbit stats were: 31 floors, 6.01 accumulated miles, 2681 Total calories burned, 74 minutes of added exercise including stationary bike and walking. All my circles were closed. However, I only slept 3 hours on the button last night and I’m sluggish again today. Not sure what is going on with all of this but I am just going to hang in there and let my body throw it’s tantrum before losing my own temper!
    Day 48 – 08/30 …..189.2…..(Trend weight 188.5) I’m not sure why I keep typing my weight wrong but I corrected yesterday’s today. Up again on the scale and I know it was my fault. I had a good compliant day but ate a couple of small snacks last night after logging that put me over (one of them salty). I’ll push water today, get in some walks and some exercise bike. Maybe even some dancing if I’m not too tired after my workers leave. Gotta stop this runaway train. It’s all part of the journey, I know, but I hate the bumpy parts of the road!
    Day 49 – 08/31 …..186.8…..(Trend weight 188.3) Finally I see the drop I’ve been looking for. Sometimes it takes more than one day to show up either way. I will work to have another good day. Yesterday no handyman but my drywall man was here for awhile. I had time to visit my 76 year old friend who misses me during these long reno projects. It was nice. I set up some doctor appointments for her, got some mail together for her (paid some bills etc) and called to have doctors renew some scripts for her that she had run out of. I’ve got to get over there more often to help her. She has a local daughter (a nurse!) and granddaughter but the job is not 100% getting done. She has shaking syndrome and can’t write anymore (among other things). It was nice to spend a couple of hours with her. Today I will try to get more movement in. I’ve been doing a little, but not a lot. I can do more.

    Actual Weight Loss in August (from July 31) ……………….. 6.0 lbs. Lost
    Total Accumulated Actual Weight Loss…..8.8 lbs. total lost so far


    Day 50 – 09/01 …..182.8…..(Trend weight 187.8) I find this weight hard to believe today. 4 pound loss overnight??? (After a 2.4 loss the day before???) My scale is reliable and I stepped on it 3 times but I don’t trust this and consider it a fluctuation. I did everything right. I had TM. I finally slept over 4 and ½ hours which is good for me> But that is a bit much. Traveling today and tomorrow. Plenty of sitting and restaurant food. I’ll be home each night and will keep up with the posts. Friday morning my scale reading will not be pretty but that is how I roll.



    Halfway Progress Report: …..Pounds Lost so Far: 10 pounds but I am skeptical. I’ll change this on Sunday to keep it realistic.

    Day 51 – 09/02 …..185.2…..(Trend weight 187.5) This weight seems much more accurate although I have yet more travel today getting an elderly friend to her neurologist downstate. I am going to take all my weight scale readings with a grain of salt until Sunday. That puts all the travel behind me and gives me a day or two to shed any water and get in a couple of walks or some movement after all the car driving. I will then change my 50 day progress and my MFP charts. Much more travel in the coming two weeks due to some of the cancer re-checks and MRI scans etc associated with the biopsy results. Still no definitive answers but the biopsy did not get to the margins like they had hoped and they are still nervous about possible problems. I am worried about seeing a breast surgeon? Why a breast surgeon? I guess the answers will come in the next two weeks. In the meantime, water is still flowing but I definitely can hear the pump running more often than it should. Kicking on & off during water requests way more often. I sure wish the well company would call me back. I just wanted to ask about that! I hate for my pump to burn up! Back to the weight…….It sure was nice to see myself so close to the 170’s for a split second. The low 180’s is a dream I didn’t see possible back on May 23rd & 24th when I weighed nearly 209 pounds. I touched the low 180’s yesterday for a flukey moment. I will revisit it again soon!
    Day 52 – 09/03 …..187.5…..(Trend weight 187.7) There are those extra calories showing up. I should have skipped that MASSIVE piece of cheesecake but no looking back! Back home and on track today. I plan a great day. 3 hours and 2 minutes of sleep last night. No enough water yesterday. No TMI today. Weigh in was less than 5 hours after my last food (that happens with so little sleep and such a long day). I suspect tomorrow will be better. Cement for the 80 foot set of steps down to the mailbox today is being poured by a company and being leveled by my handymen. Exciting day! I think the cabin I rent out is also being painted today unless plans changed while I was away. Progress…….
    Day 53 – 09/04 …..187.5…..(Trend weight 187.8) Yesterday I found out that my ex-sister-in-law that I’ve known for 46 years died of Covid in South Carolina. She was fully vaccinated and had just turned 64. She was immuno-compromised. Her daughter found her unresponsive in her home (she lived alone). She was alive, but was later determined to be brain dead. She was lucky enough to get a ventilator for a short time since they are scarce, but she was taken off all life support measures when it was determined she would never wake up and never go home. Please, even if vaccinated, mask up in those highly public places. More people love you and don’t want to lose you than you even realize. I spent all evening and night eating my emotions and moving into the 2nd phase of grief = anger. I am surprised the scale didn’t go up. Today I will try hard to be more mindful. The food binges changes nothing.

    Day 54 – 09/05 …..188.2…..(Trend weight 187.8) I’ve got to get this train back on track before my trend weight changes. Those numbers are harder to get movement on and I don’t want to deal with that too. I ate 400 extra calories after I closed out MFP last night which put me in the red. I hadn’t planned well and was hungry and looking for comfort too. I have regret today. Lots of phone calls and texting yesterday. Not as much movement as I could have had. Today is the BBQ at my DD’s house for Labor Day. I don’t want to disappoint anyone, especially my grandkids so I’ll probably go but I would rather stay here in my pajamas all day and allow myself to be sad and angry. I don’t need the scale’s loud voice screaming at me tomorrow, so I’ll try to watch it today. However, no guarantees at a large holiday gathering.
    Day 55 – 09/06 …..189.4…..(Trend weight 188.0) My well went out again this morning. Luckily I was able to complicate my handyman on his holiday and get him over to re-prime. Luckily my neighbor was gracious enough to let us use his hoses and spigot/water for the reprime, even though he has overnight friend and his girlfriend staying with them. Nothing like imposing on a bunch of very nice people! Scale is up again, cortisol levels are through the roof. 2 doctor appointments this week. Tomorrow for glucose that has been running dangerously high. The other involves travel to get 2 different CT scans (one with contrast and one without). This is for the liver check and the lung check due to some cancer concerns. Seriously, can things get any worse? Oh, yeah. And the funeral for ex-SIL is tomorrow halfway across the country. I can’t go and hate that too. Chin up Donna! The odds are in my favor that things can only get better from here. I’m going to start by having a great day full of movement and water (but not full of food). Have SOMETHING go right is what I need most right now. Control what we can, right?
    Day 56 – 09/07 …..187.2…..(Trend weight 187.9) I stuck to a 1002 calorie diet yesterday and added in some extra walking. It made the difference! Onward but not forward. I prefer downward.
    Day 57 – 09/08 …..187.6…..(Trend weight 187.9) My calories were in the green and I did well with planning. However, due to very severe rain, thunderstorms and hail, I was unable to get outside. Busy day with my SIL funeral. I was able to be there thanks to a live video. Lots of phone calls and texts later kept me busy. I hope today I can fit a little more fitness in. Possible rain again, but it may pass us.
