    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ July 14 through Oct 21, 2021
    My Name is Donna, Age 61. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    Day 59 – 09/10 …..DNW……Ttrend weight DNW) They stopped my diabetic medications Wednesday night and I can’t begin taking them again until Sunday morning to protect the kidneys. Hopefully, knowing that, I will be able to do better on my eating. Today the well company comes back. Of course, it breaks down when they are NOT here, instead of when they are. This time, I hope they can figure out from the patterns what is going on. Praying it’s adjustments and not new pump or well. I am starving already (which happens after a day of eating with all caution to the wind). It won’t be easy, but I’ve got to be creative today and make it a good day.

    Day 80 – 10/01 …..187.0……Oops. Typed my weight wrong yesterday. It was 186.2. Corrected now. Up again today after a full-on binge. It was ridiculous. May be traveling tomorrow too so that won’t help. I’ve got to make today count!
    Day 81 – 10/02 …..185.0……Got back on track yesterday with carefully planned meals and snacks. I burned 2900 calories overall for the day with over 16,000 steps working outside painting and staining again. The work itself was not a big calorie burner, it was going up & down my slope of a yard into the house and back that really gave me the burn, the flights of stairs documented on fitbit and the steps. Today will be opposite. Lots of car sitting/driving. Restaurant meal(s). I will try to choose carefully remembering that whatever damage I do, I will have to work hard to get rid of in the upcoming week. Maybe that will help my choices as I look over the menu. Because of my eating issues, sometimes it is hard to find the right things, but I will be thoughtful.
    Day 82 – 10/03 …..187.0……There’s the expected uptick. Now, to work it back down!
    Day 83 – 10/04 …..187.2…… Some unexpected travel yesterday which took me away for about 4 hours late afternoon until evening. However, the shorter trip did not blow my dietary goals. I just lacked movement and as much water as I would normally drink. I hope today goes smoother.
    Day 84 – 10/05 …..186.8…… I ended up eating into the red on my mfp log after I logged it out. An extra 410 calories but it was healthy small meal and I was hungry. My overall fitbit calorie expenditure minus my food stayed in the green and so I saw a small loss which is better than nothing! I will aim to spread my meals out better today. I ate too early yesterday, thus the nighttime hunger.
    Day 85 – 10/06 …..184.6….. Finally my TMI body functions worked properly yesterday so it was reflected on the scale today. It’s nice to know where I really am without false inflated numbers from no TMI or from water retention after a high sodium choice. Not too bad. Now it’s time to think about getting closer to 180.
    Day 86 – 10/07 …..184.8……A normal overnight fluctuation. I had a good day and plan on another one today. I’m down 10.4 pounds since the start of this round. I lost 12.4 in the last round (#8). I’m not going to say those are stellar performances because I know I could have done better so so so many times on choices. I also know that my exercise and movement has been INCREDIBLY stifled. But I am glad for the progress that I feel is very good considering my eating issues and my renovation (trapped inside at home) situations. Most of the time it feels like not much progress. It’s nice being able to look back at 100 days at a time and see that I’m doing something right.
    Day 87 – 10/08 …..185.6……There is absolutely no reason for such an uptick. I am thinking my body is recompensating for some recent larger drops. I stayed in the green yesterday and did not even log all the extra activity that I did. I am going to try to follow how certain food choices are affecting me (even though they keep me in the green and with good macros). Not an easy thing to do when TMI is not regular and with water retention at times. But I just want to see a pattern of something that may be helping or hurting. I plan another good day today except rain is expected all day. Very cold and damp.
    Day 88 – 10/09 …..184.0……Okay. It finally shows up in a more accurate range than that Godforsaken bump up yesterday without cause! I’m dreaming of 182 point anything. I hit it back on Sept 1st for a minute and a half. I’m sure it was not accurate. However, I like the way it digitally shined up at me from the scale. Reaching for those stars as it’s about halfway to hitting the 170’s. I just checked my stats. My lowest weight since 2006 (15 years ago) was 174 .6 which I hit three years ago in Oct 2018. Inching my way to the 170’s and getting there will really boost my morale.
    Day 89 – 10/10 …..185.6……My daughter moved back in last night with my 3 year old grandson. Figuring out meals for me will be tough. She has already brought us Chinese food which I think caused water retention this morning. I was only over by around 100 yesterday after eating a yogurt. So I’m thinking the sodium. Either that or cortisol. This is stressful while so many are in the house on these reno projects too. I can barely walk through between drywall buckets, pain buckets, boxes of ceramic tile and toys. I’ll try to stay positive.
    Day 90 – 10/11 …..185.6……(Trend weight 188.1)My daughter brought in over $150.00 worth of Halloween candy for a party she had been planning. She has now had to cancel it due to her circumstances. I’m talking Reeses pumpkins, kit-kats, Hershey kisses galore, the whole 9 yards. Today I am going to carry the whole huge basket and bags upstairs to get it out of my face. My hips don’t need it and neither does my diabetes. I ate many pieces yesterday. I suspect it will show up on the scale sooner or later since I am babysitting now and can’t get out at all. I’ll need to make a plan. I adore my DGS but he is demanding and takes up every moment of my time. Lots to figure out here.
    Day 91 – 10/12 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.9) My daughter will be making goodie bags for the kids originally invited to her Halloween party she’s cancelled. She will hand deliver them. Anything leftover she will take to work. It was a nice and fruitful talk. Travel today. Dinner will be out so I expect an uptick tomorrow. I wish there had been a small change on the scale today because yesterday was an excellent day for me. However, all good things come to those who wait, so Do You Hear Me Universe? I’m Waiting…….
    Day 92 – 10/13 …..187.0……(Trend weight 187.8) Expected uptick from yesterday’s travel. Started the day horribly with my grandson age 3 who wouldn’t stop screaming, writhing on the floor and kicking. He was not in a good mood at all. I already feel drained. Today is not going to be a good day. That is clear. Poor little fella has been uprooted from his home and so I understand his frustration. But it doesn’t make it any easier, especially physically. It took two of us getting kicked in the face, just to get him standing to get his clothes on. I’m already reminding myself about every 3 minutes that I will not emotionally eat today or that I will not take the easy way out and eat something that doesn’t require a lot of planning due to exhaustion. That usually has more calories and carbs. I’ve got to try to offset today's travel uptick while figuring out how to deal with 4 different people and 4 different eating tastes and habits including my Autistic son and his white food. 7 workers (including one's family members who will sit at my kitchen table all day) expected throughout the day today, overlapping. Last one will leave about 9:30 pm. I’m not looking forward to this day. DGS sets the whole tone for all of us in the morning. BTW, the one who leaves latest is the one with the family. My dinner is often very late.

    Day 93 – 10/14 …..186.2……(Trend weight 187.6) Travel weight oozing back out. Happy to see it. Downward trend going well too. My daughter made pumpkin cheesecake for dessert tonight from scratch which is pretty cruel. I will have one piece and allow for it, but I will have to have her padlock me in at night as I stay up late and my bedroom is not far from the refrigerator for 2nds. Control……Not just now, ……for Life……

    Day 94 – 10/15 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.2) Nice to see a drop. Travel today . Here comes the yo-yo.

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 61, 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? 1226 in the Green
    Day 58: Thurs, 9/9: 134.1 - That is a nice drop. Yesterday's numbers are not sustainable (burned more than I ate!), but glad that they made a difference. 1060 in the Green
    Day 59: Fri, 9/10: 133.7 - Planned indulgences tonight after work. 390 in the Green
    Day 60: Sat, 9/11: 134.1 - I had some food from Spice Hut, the Indian restaurant where I work. Mutter Paneer. It was really good, I ate half. This is only the second time that I have had food from there since April. With all of the activity that I had, I have skimmed 2.2 pounds off of the beginning of this week. 12 in the Green

    9th Week Goal Weight: 133.3
    9th Week Actual Weight: 134.1
    Calorie deficit totals: 4617 enough to lose a pound and I did

    Day 61: Sun, 9/12: DNW, woke up at 3am and had water, coffee, etc. I expected to be able to go back to sleep before my 5pm shift, but couldn't. 908 in the Green
    Day 62: Mon, 9/13: 137.8 - This weight is unacceptable, I hit it last November. I have got a frantic week and then am gone on 5 days vacation. I will be taking rice cakes and almond butter for sure on my trip. 350 in the Green
    Day 63: Tues, 9/14: 134.7 - Okay. Scrambling to get a few things done before I leave at 3pm on Thursday. Tomatoes and Peppers are now covered in case of frost while I am gone. Doing extra shifts at work to allow for my upcoming time off. 927 in the Green
    Day 64: Wed, 9/15: 133.9 - 2 more workdays before vacay : - ) 336 in the Green
    Day 65: Thurs, 9/16: 134.4 1133 in the Green
    Day 66: Fri, 9/17: 132.9 - Started this 100 off at 132.2. Worked and then traveled yesterday. Yes, I brought my scale. I did not eat nearly enough yesterday. Skating today for the first time this season : - ) 949 in the Green
    Day 67: Sat, 9/18: 131.8 - Hard pressed to get enough calories in, I supplemented with Pringles, champagne, and brandy last night :p 1375 in the Green


    10th Week Goal Weight: 131.1
    10th Week Actual Weight: 131.8 - That scary spike up to 137.8 this week? Well, I just hope to never see that again!
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 definitely enough to lose a pound or more


    Day 68: Sun, 9/19: 132.1 - I was awake way too early, I expect that my weight would be less had I not weighed at 4am. Having said that, I plan to indulge over the next few days. Today is a driving day, I will get a workout in before I hit the road. 391 in the Green
    Day 69: Mon, 9/20: 132.8 - My 61st birthday, so down 7.3 pounds since my 60th. I'll take it : - ) Still up above my 100 day start weight, and planning on indulging some more today. Perhaps my high output days will save me a little. 27 in the Green
    Day 70: Tues, 9/21: 134.0 - Hiked all day yesterday, hopefully that will catch up on the scale in the days to come. Driving home today. I will get a nice walk and workout in before that. I have an appointment in Cranbrook to get my silver roots dyed out - I usually do it, but am treating myself : - ) 340 in the Green
    Day 71: Wed, 9/22: 134.8 - Up 2 pounds since my birthday! Home now and will be back to work. 512 in the Green
    Day 72: Thurs, 9/23: 134.5 - My calorie burn output is so much less this week in comparison to my input. I am not going to have the 300 calories of hummus with my peppers as my work snack today. 815 in the Green
    Day 73: Fri, 9/24: 134.1 - Skipping the hummus helped, and that in turn helped my activity output number. The fresh peppers from my garden were completely delicious even without the hummus. 26 days to get back to my start weight. 518 in the Green
    Day 74: Sat, 9/25: 133.7 - Great active days and 1 bad day led to a gain. 405 in the Green
    11th Week Goal Weight:
    11th Week Actual Weight: 133.7 - Up 1.6 pounds over the week : - (
    Calorie deficit totals: 3008 - Not enough to lose a pound

    Day 75: Sun, 9/26: 132.9 - Okay, getting closer to my start weight 75 days ago. 1165 in the Green
    Day 76: Mon, 9/27: 134.4 - Don't know why. I was getting closer to my start weight. I will try to be patient and stay "good" even though I am working splits most of the week and dinners will be late. 751 in the Green
    Day 77: Tues, 9/28: ?? 733 in the Green
    Day 78: Wed, 9/29: 134.8 - Looks like my yesterday's post didn't "take". These late dinners are taking a toll, but it is my work schedule which doesn't look like it will change. I am working splits until we replace the girl that moved away. Calorie input is on point, calorie output is on point. Looks like time of day of eating does make a difference. Skating starts mid-October here, but I may be working during public skating. The ice on the lakes doesn't freeze until well into December. Kind of resigning myself into the mid 130s for now. 776 in the Green.
    Day 79: Thurs, 9/30: 133.4 - I am doing better with my calorie deficit this week compared to last. I really don't lose weight unless I average at least a 500 deficit each day. 376 in the Green
    Day 80: Fri, 10/1: 134.4 - Kind of expected, my deficit was lower yesterday because I consumed more calories. 40 in the Green
    Day 81: Sat, 10/2: 133.9 - Day off, going to go for a hike, have a good workout, and spend most of the day in the yard getting some harvest before the temps dip below freezing in a week from now. 737 in the Green

    12th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 (That would be a 1 pound loss in 81 days)
    12th Week Actual Weight: 133.9
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 - More than enough to lose a pound
    Day 82: Sun, 10/3: 135.4 - I don't get it, not happy with this number after an awesome active day with healthy choices. 769 in the Green
    Day 83: Mon, 10/4: 135.4 - Does my body just want to be this weight? Pants are tight! Late dinners with my work schedule are probably not helping. 715 in the Green
    Day 84: Tues, 10/5: 134.3 - Late dinners are not going to be going away any time soon, but glad to be down slightly. 476 in the Green
    Day 85: Wed, 10/6: 133.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the later dinners? 213 in the Green
    Day 86: Thurs, 10/7: 134.5 - Going out for Jamaican food with a friend tomorrow night, then Turkey, stuffing, gravy, libations etc. start Saturday and go for 3 days. Going to get some extra activity in today and keep my eating light. 669 in the Green
    Day 87: Fri, 10/8: 134.7 - kind of expected a drop this morning, but nope.
    Day 88: Sat, 10/9: 136.4 - Dinner out at a restaurant. This is exactly why I haven't gone out to eat in a restaurant in years - weight gain. Thanksgiving dinner for the next 3, and although it will be homemade, it will include all kinds of fattening stuff. 974 in the Green

    13th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 88 days!
    13th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - 1 dinner out really got me.
    Calorie deficit totals: 4022 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 89: Sun, 10/10: 137.4 - 1st day of Thanksgiving eating. I will try to cut the portions over the next 2. It took me 300 days to take off what I just put on, but whatever, really delicious foods. 509 in the Green
    Day 90: Mon, 10/11: 137.0 - Lots more Turkey with all the trimmings to eat still. I will try to gets lots of activity in. 1387 in the Green
    Day 91: Tues, 10/12: 136.2 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, 5 hours digging up potatoes on top of workouts and work Only a few rows left to do in the potato garden, if the snow flies I will at least have gotten most of them out. Portioning out my Thanksgiving leftovers still. 811 in the Green
    Day 92: Wed, 10/13: 135.5 - A couple more days of Thanksgiving leftovers still, but they are all portioned out. Glad to see the scale moving back down after that one dinner out and feasting for Thanksgiving.
    Day 93: Thurs, 10/14: 135.9 - Had restaurant food last night, this could spike me for a few days. Hoping not though. I had Daal Makhni, but no rice or appies.
    Day 94: Fri, 10/15: 135.6 - I need to get more motivated, maybe today.
    Day 95: Sat, 10/16:

    14th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 95 days!

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ July 14 through Oct 21, 2021
    My Name is Donna, Age 61. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s

Hopefully, knowing that, I will be able to do better on my eating. Today the well company comes back. Of course, it breaks down when they are NOT here, instead of when they are. This time, I hope they can figure out from the patterns what is going on. Praying it’s adjustments and not new pump or well. I am starving already (which happens after a day of eating with all caution to the wind). It won’t be easy, but I’ve got to be creative today and make it a good day.

    Day 88 – 10/09 …..184.0……

    Day 89 – 10/10 …..185.6……My daughter moved back in last night with my 3 year old grandson. Figuring out meals for me will be tough. She has already brought us Chinese food which I think caused water retention this morning. I was only over by around 100 yesterday after eating a yogurt. So I’m thinking the sodium. Either that or cortisol. This is stressful while so many are in the house on these reno projects too. I can barely walk through between drywall buckets, pain buckets, boxes of ceramic tile and toys. I’ll try to stay positive.
    Day 90 – 10/11 …..185.6……(Trend weight 188.1)My daughter brought in over $150.00 worth of Halloween candy for a party she had been planning. She has now had to cancel it due to her circumstances. I’m talking Reeses pumpkins, kit-kats, Hershey kisses galore, the whole 9 yards. Today I am going to carry the whole huge basket and bags upstairs to get it out of my face. My hips don’t need it and neither does my diabetes. I ate many pieces yesterday. I suspect it will show up on the scale sooner or later since I am babysitting now and can’t get out at all. I’ll need to make a plan. I adore my DGS but he is demanding and takes up every moment of my time. Lots to figure out here.
    Day 91 – 10/12 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.9) My daughter will be making goodie bags for the kids originally invited to her Halloween party she’s cancelled. She will hand deliver them. Anything leftover she will take to work. It was a nice and fruitful talk. Travel today. Dinner will be out so I expect an uptick tomorrow. I wish there had been a small change on the scale today because yesterday was an excellent day for me. However, all good things come to those who wait, so Do You Hear Me Universe? I’m Waiting…….
    Day 92 – 10/13 …..187.0……(Trend weight 187.8) Expected uptick from yesterday’s travel. Started the day horribly with my grandson age 3 who wouldn’t stop screaming, writhing on the floor and kicking. He was not in a good mood at all. I already feel drained. Today is not going to be a good day. That is clear. Poor little fella has been uprooted from his home and so I understand his frustration. But it doesn’t make it any easier, especially physically. It took two of us getting kicked in the face, just to get him standing to get his clothes on. I’m already reminding myself about every 3 minutes that I will not emotionally eat today or that I will not take the easy way out and eat something that doesn’t require a lot of planning due to exhaustion. That usually has more calories and carbs. I’ve got to try to offset today's travel uptick while figuring out how to deal with 4 different people and 4 different eating tastes and habits including my Autistic son and his white food. 7 workers (including one's family members who will sit at my kitchen table all day) expected throughout the day today, overlapping. Last one will leave about 9:30 pm. I’m not looking forward to this day. DGS sets the whole tone for all of us in the morning. BTW, the one who leaves latest is the one with the family. My dinner is often very late.

    Day 93 – 10/14 …..186.2……(Trend weight 187.6) Travel weight oozing back out. Happy to see it. Downward trend going well too. My daughter made pumpkin cheesecake for dessert tonight from scratch which is pretty cruel. I will have one piece and allow for it, but I will have to have her padlock me in at night as I stay up late and my bedroom is not far from the refrigerator for 2nds. Control……Not just now, ……for Life……

    Day 94 – 10/15 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.4) Nice to see a drop. Travel today . Here comes the yo-yo.
    Day 95 – 10/16 …..185.8……(Trend weight 187.3) This is actually pretty good after a travel day where my movement and steps were so low I had to blink a couple of times and check them again. I hope nothing continues to creep in from it, especially when we are so close to the end of this round. I will try to make today a good day although movement will be difficult in the rain and with the house full of people. What I can when I can, right?

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 61, 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? 1226 in the Green
    Day 58: Thurs, 9/9: 134.1 - That is a nice drop. Yesterday's numbers are not sustainable (burned more than I ate!), but glad that they made a difference. 1060 in the Green
    Day 59: Fri, 9/10: 133.7 - Planned indulgences tonight after work. 390 in the Green
    Day 60: Sat, 9/11: 134.1 - I had some food from Spice Hut, the Indian restaurant where I work. Mutter Paneer. It was really good, I ate half. This is only the second time that I have had food from there since April. With all of the activity that I had, I have skimmed 2.2 pounds off of the beginning of this week. 12 in the Green

    9th Week Goal Weight: 133.3
    9th Week Actual Weight: 134.1
    Calorie deficit totals: 4617 enough to lose a pound and I did

    Day 61: Sun, 9/12: DNW, woke up at 3am and had water, coffee, etc. I expected to be able to go back to sleep before my 5pm shift, but couldn't. 908 in the Green
    Day 62: Mon, 9/13: 137.8 - This weight is unacceptable, I hit it last November. I have got a frantic week and then am gone on 5 days vacation. I will be taking rice cakes and almond butter for sure on my trip. 350 in the Green
    Day 63: Tues, 9/14: 134.7 - Okay. Scrambling to get a few things done before I leave at 3pm on Thursday. Tomatoes and Peppers are now covered in case of frost while I am gone. Doing extra shifts at work to allow for my upcoming time off. 927 in the Green
    Day 64: Wed, 9/15: 133.9 - 2 more workdays before vacay : - ) 336 in the Green
    Day 65: Thurs, 9/16: 134.4 1133 in the Green
    Day 66: Fri, 9/17: 132.9 - Started this 100 off at 132.2. Worked and then traveled yesterday. Yes, I brought my scale. I did not eat nearly enough yesterday. Skating today for the first time this season : - ) 949 in the Green
    Day 67: Sat, 9/18: 131.8 - Hard pressed to get enough calories in, I supplemented with Pringles, champagne, and brandy last night :p 1375 in the Green


    10th Week Goal Weight: 131.1
    10th Week Actual Weight: 131.8 - That scary spike up to 137.8 this week? Well, I just hope to never see that again!
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 definitely enough to lose a pound or more


    Day 68: Sun, 9/19: 132.1 - I was awake way too early, I expect that my weight would be less had I not weighed at 4am. Having said that, I plan to indulge over the next few days. Today is a driving day, I will get a workout in before I hit the road. 391 in the Green
    Day 69: Mon, 9/20: 132.8 - My 61st birthday, so down 7.3 pounds since my 60th. I'll take it : - ) Still up above my 100 day start weight, and planning on indulging some more today. Perhaps my high output days will save me a little. 27 in the Green
    Day 70: Tues, 9/21: 134.0 - Hiked all day yesterday, hopefully that will catch up on the scale in the days to come. Driving home today. I will get a nice walk and workout in before that. I have an appointment in Cranbrook to get my silver roots dyed out - I usually do it, but am treating myself : - ) 340 in the Green
    Day 71: Wed, 9/22: 134.8 - Up 2 pounds since my birthday! Home now and will be back to work. 512 in the Green
    Day 72: Thurs, 9/23: 134.5 - My calorie burn output is so much less this week in comparison to my input. I am not going to have the 300 calories of hummus with my peppers as my work snack today. 815 in the Green
    Day 73: Fri, 9/24: 134.1 - Skipping the hummus helped, and that in turn helped my activity output number. The fresh peppers from my garden were completely delicious even without the hummus. 26 days to get back to my start weight. 518 in the Green
    Day 74: Sat, 9/25: 133.7 - Great active days and 1 bad day led to a gain. 405 in the Green
    11th Week Goal Weight:
    11th Week Actual Weight: 133.7 - Up 1.6 pounds over the week : - (
    Calorie deficit totals: 3008 - Not enough to lose a pound

    Day 75: Sun, 9/26: 132.9 - Okay, getting closer to my start weight 75 days ago. 1165 in the Green
    Day 76: Mon, 9/27: 134.4 - Don't know why. I was getting closer to my start weight. I will try to be patient and stay "good" even though I am working splits most of the week and dinners will be late. 751 in the Green
    Day 77: Tues, 9/28: ?? 733 in the Green
    Day 78: Wed, 9/29: 134.8 - Looks like my yesterday's post didn't "take". These late dinners are taking a toll, but it is my work schedule which doesn't look like it will change. I am working splits until we replace the girl that moved away. Calorie input is on point, calorie output is on point. Looks like time of day of eating does make a difference. Skating starts mid-October here, but I may be working during public skating. The ice on the lakes doesn't freeze until well into December. Kind of resigning myself into the mid 130s for now. 776 in the Green.
    Day 79: Thurs, 9/30: 133.4 - I am doing better with my calorie deficit this week compared to last. I really don't lose weight unless I average at least a 500 deficit each day. 376 in the Green
    Day 80: Fri, 10/1: 134.4 - Kind of expected, my deficit was lower yesterday because I consumed more calories. 40 in the Green
    Day 81: Sat, 10/2: 133.9 - Day off, going to go for a hike, have a good workout, and spend most of the day in the yard getting some harvest before the temps dip below freezing in a week from now. 737 in the Green

    12th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 (That would be a 1 pound loss in 81 days)
    12th Week Actual Weight: 133.9
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 - More than enough to lose a pound
    Day 82: Sun, 10/3: 135.4 - I don't get it, not happy with this number after an awesome active day with healthy choices. 769 in the Green
    Day 83: Mon, 10/4: 135.4 - Does my body just want to be this weight? Pants are tight! Late dinners with my work schedule are probably not helping. 715 in the Green
    Day 84: Tues, 10/5: 134.3 - Late dinners are not going to be going away any time soon, but glad to be down slightly. 476 in the Green
    Day 85: Wed, 10/6: 133.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the later dinners? 213 in the Green
    Day 86: Thurs, 10/7: 134.5 - Going out for Jamaican food with a friend tomorrow night, then Turkey, stuffing, gravy, libations etc. start Saturday and go for 3 days. Going to get some extra activity in today and keep my eating light. 669 in the Green
    Day 87: Fri, 10/8: 134.7 - kind of expected a drop this morning, but nope.
    Day 88: Sat, 10/9: 136.4 - Dinner out at a restaurant. This is exactly why I haven't gone out to eat in a restaurant in years - weight gain. Thanksgiving dinner for the next 3, and although it will be homemade, it will include all kinds of fattening stuff. 974 in the Green

    13th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 88 days!
    13th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - 1 dinner out really got me.
    Calorie deficit totals: 4022 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 89: Sun, 10/10: 137.4 - 1st day of Thanksgiving eating. I will try to cut the portions over the next 2. It took me 300 days to take off what I just put on, but whatever, really delicious foods. 509 in the Green
    Day 90: Mon, 10/11: 137.0 - Lots more Turkey with all the trimmings to eat still. I will try to gets lots of activity in. 1387 in the Green
    Day 91: Tues, 10/12: 136.2 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, 5 hours digging up potatoes on top of workouts and work Only a few rows left to do in the potato garden, if the snow flies I will at least have gotten most of them out. Portioning out my Thanksgiving leftovers still. 811 in the Green
    Day 92: Wed, 10/13: 135.5 - A couple more days of Thanksgiving leftovers still, but they are all portioned out. Glad to see the scale moving back down after that one dinner out and feasting for Thanksgiving. 388 in the Green
    Day 93: Thurs, 10/14: 135.9 - Had restaurant food last night, this could spike me for a few days. Hoping not though. I had Daal Makhni, but no rice or appies. 186 in the Green
    Day 94: Fri, 10/15: 135.6 - I need to get more motivated, maybe today. 449 in the Green
    Day 95: Sat, 10/16: 136.7 - Absolutely no reason for the gain - this makes me un-motivated.

    14th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 95 days!
    14th Week Actual Weight: 136.7 : - (
    Calorie deficit totals: I will figure this out after today's numbers.

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 61, 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? 1226 in the Green
    Day 58: Thurs, 9/9: 134.1 - That is a nice drop. Yesterday's numbers are not sustainable (burned more than I ate!), but glad that they made a difference. 1060 in the Green
    Day 59: Fri, 9/10: 133.7 - Planned indulgences tonight after work. 390 in the Green
    Day 60: Sat, 9/11: 134.1 - I had some food from Spice Hut, the Indian restaurant where I work. Mutter Paneer. It was really good, I ate half. This is only the second time that I have had food from there since April. With all of the activity that I had, I have skimmed 2.2 pounds off of the beginning of this week. 12 in the Green

    9th Week Goal Weight: 133.3
    9th Week Actual Weight: 134.1
    Calorie deficit totals: 4617 enough to lose a pound and I did

    Day 61: Sun, 9/12: DNW, woke up at 3am and had water, coffee, etc. I expected to be able to go back to sleep before my 5pm shift, but couldn't. 908 in the Green
    Day 62: Mon, 9/13: 137.8 - This weight is unacceptable, I hit it last November. I have got a frantic week and then am gone on 5 days vacation. I will be taking rice cakes and almond butter for sure on my trip. 350 in the Green
    Day 63: Tues, 9/14: 134.7 - Okay. Scrambling to get a few things done before I leave at 3pm on Thursday. Tomatoes and Peppers are now covered in case of frost while I am gone. Doing extra shifts at work to allow for my upcoming time off. 927 in the Green
    Day 64: Wed, 9/15: 133.9 - 2 more workdays before vacay : - ) 336 in the Green
    Day 65: Thurs, 9/16: 134.4 1133 in the Green
    Day 66: Fri, 9/17: 132.9 - Started this 100 off at 132.2. Worked and then traveled yesterday. Yes, I brought my scale. I did not eat nearly enough yesterday. Skating today for the first time this season : - ) 949 in the Green
    Day 67: Sat, 9/18: 131.8 - Hard pressed to get enough calories in, I supplemented with Pringles, champagne, and brandy last night :p 1375 in the Green


    10th Week Goal Weight: 131.1
    10th Week Actual Weight: 131.8 - That scary spike up to 137.8 this week? Well, I just hope to never see that again!
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 definitely enough to lose a pound or more


    Day 68: Sun, 9/19: 132.1 - I was awake way too early, I expect that my weight would be less had I not weighed at 4am. Having said that, I plan to indulge over the next few days. Today is a driving day, I will get a workout in before I hit the road. 391 in the Green
    Day 69: Mon, 9/20: 132.8 - My 61st birthday, so down 7.3 pounds since my 60th. I'll take it : - ) Still up above my 100 day start weight, and planning on indulging some more today. Perhaps my high output days will save me a little. 27 in the Green
    Day 70: Tues, 9/21: 134.0 - Hiked all day yesterday, hopefully that will catch up on the scale in the days to come. Driving home today. I will get a nice walk and workout in before that. I have an appointment in Cranbrook to get my silver roots dyed out - I usually do it, but am treating myself : - ) 340 in the Green
    Day 71: Wed, 9/22: 134.8 - Up 2 pounds since my birthday! Home now and will be back to work. 512 in the Green
    Day 72: Thurs, 9/23: 134.5 - My calorie burn output is so much less this week in comparison to my input. I am not going to have the 300 calories of hummus with my peppers as my work snack today. 815 in the Green
    Day 73: Fri, 9/24: 134.1 - Skipping the hummus helped, and that in turn helped my activity output number. The fresh peppers from my garden were completely delicious even without the hummus. 26 days to get back to my start weight. 518 in the Green
    Day 74: Sat, 9/25: 133.7 - Great active days and 1 bad day led to a gain. 405 in the Green
    11th Week Goal Weight:
    11th Week Actual Weight: 133.7 - Up 1.6 pounds over the week : - (
    Calorie deficit totals: 3008 - Not enough to lose a pound

    Day 75: Sun, 9/26: 132.9 - Okay, getting closer to my start weight 75 days ago. 1165 in the Green
    Day 76: Mon, 9/27: 134.4 - Don't know why. I was getting closer to my start weight. I will try to be patient and stay "good" even though I am working splits most of the week and dinners will be late. 751 in the Green
    Day 77: Tues, 9/28: ?? 733 in the Green
    Day 78: Wed, 9/29: 134.8 - Looks like my yesterday's post didn't "take". These late dinners are taking a toll, but it is my work schedule which doesn't look like it will change. I am working splits until we replace the girl that moved away. Calorie input is on point, calorie output is on point. Looks like time of day of eating does make a difference. Skating starts mid-October here, but I may be working during public skating. The ice on the lakes doesn't freeze until well into December. Kind of resigning myself into the mid 130s for now. 776 in the Green.
    Day 79: Thurs, 9/30: 133.4 - I am doing better with my calorie deficit this week compared to last. I really don't lose weight unless I average at least a 500 deficit each day. 376 in the Green
    Day 80: Fri, 10/1: 134.4 - Kind of expected, my deficit was lower yesterday because I consumed more calories. 40 in the Green
    Day 81: Sat, 10/2: 133.9 - Day off, going to go for a hike, have a good workout, and spend most of the day in the yard getting some harvest before the temps dip below freezing in a week from now. 737 in the Green

    12th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 (That would be a 1 pound loss in 81 days)
    12th Week Actual Weight: 133.9
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 - More than enough to lose a pound
    Day 82: Sun, 10/3: 135.4 - I don't get it, not happy with this number after an awesome active day with healthy choices. 769 in the Green
    Day 83: Mon, 10/4: 135.4 - Does my body just want to be this weight? Pants are tight! Late dinners with my work schedule are probably not helping. 715 in the Green
    Day 84: Tues, 10/5: 134.3 - Late dinners are not going to be going away any time soon, but glad to be down slightly. 476 in the Green
    Day 85: Wed, 10/6: 133.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the later dinners? 213 in the Green
    Day 86: Thurs, 10/7: 134.5 - Going out for Jamaican food with a friend tomorrow night, then Turkey, stuffing, gravy, libations etc. start Saturday and go for 3 days. Going to get some extra activity in today and keep my eating light. 669 in the Green
    Day 87: Fri, 10/8: 134.7 - kind of expected a drop this morning, but nope.
    Day 88: Sat, 10/9: 136.4 - Dinner out at a restaurant. This is exactly why I haven't gone out to eat in a restaurant in years - weight gain. Thanksgiving dinner for the next 3, and although it will be homemade, it will include all kinds of fattening stuff. 974 in the Green

    13th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 88 days!
    13th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - 1 dinner out really got me.
    Calorie deficit totals: 4022 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 89: Sun, 10/10: 137.4 - 1st day of Thanksgiving eating. I will try to cut the portions over the next 2. It took me 300 days to take off what I just put on, but whatever, really delicious foods. 509 in the Green
    Day 90: Mon, 10/11: 137.0 - Lots more Turkey with all the trimmings to eat still. I will try to gets lots of activity in. 1387 in the Green
    Day 91: Tues, 10/12: 136.2 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, 5 hours digging up potatoes on top of workouts and work Only a few rows left to do in the potato garden, if the snow flies I will at least have gotten most of them out. Portioning out my Thanksgiving leftovers still. 811 in the Green
    Day 92: Wed, 10/13: 135.5 - A couple more days of Thanksgiving leftovers still, but they are all portioned out. Glad to see the scale moving back down after that one dinner out and feasting for Thanksgiving. 388 in the Green
    Day 93: Thurs, 10/14: 135.9 - Had restaurant food last night, this could spike me for a few days. Hoping not though. I had Daal Makhni, but no rice or appies. 186 in the Green
    Day 94: Fri, 10/15: 135.6 - I need to get more motivated, maybe today. 449 in the Green
    Day 95: Sat, 10/16: 136.7 - Absolutely no reason for the gain - this makes me un-motivated. 333 in the Green

    14th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 95 days!
    14th Week Actual Weight: 136.7 : - (

Hopefully, knowing that, I will be able to do better on my eating. Today the well company comes back. Of course, it breaks down when they are NOT here, instead of when they are. This time, I hope they can figure out from the patterns what is going on. Praying it’s adjustments and not new pump or well. I am starving already (which happens after a day of eating with all caution to the wind). It won’t be easy, but I’ve got to be creative today and make it a good day.

    Day 89 – 10/10 …..185.6……My daughter moved back in last night with my 3 year old grandson. Figuring out meals for me will be tough. She has already brought us Chinese food which I think caused water retention this morning. I was only over by around 100 yesterday after eating a yogurt. So I’m thinking the sodium. Either that or cortisol. This is stressful while so many are in the house on these reno projects too. I can barely walk through between drywall buckets, pain buckets, boxes of ceramic tile and toys. I’ll try to stay positive.
    Day 90 – 10/11 …..185.6……(Trend weight 188.1)My daughter brought in over $150.00 worth of Halloween candy for a party she had been planning. She has now had to cancel it due to her circumstances. I’m talking Reeses pumpkins, kit-kats, Hershey kisses galore, the whole 9 yards. Today I am going to carry the whole huge basket and bags upstairs to get it out of my face. My hips don’t need it and neither does my diabetes. I ate many pieces yesterday. I suspect it will show up on the scale sooner or later since I am babysitting now and can’t get out at all. I’ll need to make a plan. I adore my DGS but he is demanding and takes up every moment of my time. Lots to figure out here.
    Day 91 – 10/12 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.9) My daughter will be making goodie bags for the kids originally invited to her Halloween party she’s cancelled. She will hand deliver them. Anything leftover she will take to work. It was a nice and fruitful talk. Travel today. Dinner will be out so I expect an uptick tomorrow. I wish there had been a small change on the scale today because yesterday was an excellent day for me. However, all good things come to those who wait, so Do You Hear Me Universe? I’m Waiting…….
    Day 92 – 10/13 …..187.0……(Trend weight 187.8) Expected uptick from yesterday’s travel. Started the day horribly with my grandson age 3 who wouldn’t stop screaming, writhing on the floor and kicking. He was not in a good mood at all. I already feel drained. Today is not going to be a good day. That is clear. Poor little fella has been uprooted from his home and so I understand his frustration. But it doesn’t make it any easier, especially physically. It took two of us getting kicked in the face, just to get him standing to get his clothes on. I’m already reminding myself about every 3 minutes that I will not emotionally eat today or that I will not take the easy way out and eat something that doesn’t require a lot of planning due to exhaustion. That usually has more calories and carbs. I’ve got to try to offset today's travel uptick while figuring out how to deal with 4 different people and 4 different eating tastes and habits including my Autistic son and his white food. 7 workers (including one's family members who will sit at my kitchen table all day) expected throughout the day today, overlapping. Last one will leave about 9:30 pm. I’m not looking forward to this day. DGS sets the whole tone for all of us in the morning. BTW, the one who leaves latest is the one with the family. My dinner is often very late.

    Day 93 – 10/14 …..186.2……(Trend weight 187.6) Travel weight oozing back out. Happy to see it. Downward trend going well too. My daughter made pumpkin cheesecake for dessert tonight from scratch which is pretty cruel. I will have one piece and allow for it, but I will have to have her padlock me in at night as I stay up late and my bedroom is not far from the refrigerator for 2nds. Control……Not just now, ……for Life……

    Day 94 – 10/15 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.4) Nice to see a drop. Travel today . Here comes the yo-yo.

    Day 95 – 10/16 …..185.8……(Trend weight 187.3) This is actually pretty good after a travel day where my movement and steps were so low I had to blink a couple of times and check them again. I hope nothing continues to creep in from it, especially when we are so close to the end of this round. I will try to make today a good day although movement will be difficult in the rain and with the house full of people. What I can when I can, right?

    Day 96 – 10/17 …..186.2……(Trend weight 187.2) The continued uptick from travel I suppose since yesterday was an all-around excellent day. Daughter worked a side-job and was gone most of the day. DGS was with his dad. I ate smart and got in my steps and some exercise. However, no TMI x 2 so it is difficult to gauge real progress or damage. I am still down 9 pounds this round which is only about 3 pounds average per month. I was hoping to do better than that but, at this day & age, I suppose I will take anything my body gives me. Slow progress yesterday in the reno as only the guy with his family showed up. No tile man, no floor man, no explanations or cancel calls. The work ethic in this area sucks!

    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)
    3rd Week Weight Loss: +0.9

    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.

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.

FINISHED my 100 miles for August! I’m walking on the 31st anyway.

    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.

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.
    Day 58: Thurs, 9/9: 202.3 Walked 4 miles, Strength Class 1 hr, 1357 cal, 91 net carbs, AF. Didn’t accomplish much today outside of menu planning, groceries, cooking, and exercising … oh and reading “This Tender Land” by William Kent Krueger and listening to “The House in the Cerulean Sea” by TJ Klune. Headed to the fishing camp today for a long food & drink weekend where exercise is challenging. Before I leave planning to attend strong & fit strength class this morning.
    Day 59: Fri, 9/10: 203.7 @ fishing camp 🎣 Strength Class 1 hr, no walking, 5 hrs in the car, 1599 cal, 139 net carbs, not enough water. 1.5 bottles of Michelob Ultra at the Community BBQ event hosted by one of the resort camps and held at Dirty Reds outside bar … get to know your neighbors (free brisket & beer)
    Day 60: Sat, 9/11: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.4 miles, fishing … caught 21.5” & 23” Redfish, 1405 cal, 68 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.

    9th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! But I would be happy just get back below 202. Repeat until I hit either or both!
    9th Week Actual Weight: 203.7
    9th Week Weight Loss: -.2

    Day 65: Thurs, 9/16: 204.1 Walked 4.5 + 1 miles, 1845 cal, 117, 2 margaritas on the rocks. Book club met at a Mexican restaurant. My downfall … I’ve not been out to eat Mexican food and drink margaritas in a very long time. Put that with a group of ladies that enjoy “discussions” and it was a fun evening but filling!
    Day 66: Fri, 9/17: 204.5 Walked 2.4 + 1.2 miles, Strength Class 1 hr, 2002 cal, 178 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine.

I’m on a roll this year toward vaccines … first the Pfizer covid19 vaccine, then 1st Shingrix shingles vaccine and now the Fluzone Quad flu vaccine. Prepping DH & I for our vacation in October as well as our 1st grandchild which we are expecting in late December.
    Day 67: Sat, 9/18: 203.2 Walked 2.9 miles, 1901 cal, 85 net carbs, AF. Dog sitting for my daughter and it is really hard to walk 3 large dogs together!

Then our husbands joined us for sushi dinner. Later in the evening DD & her hubby introduced us to 2 David Chang TV series “Ugly Delicious” and “The Mind of a Chef”. Wonderful Friday.

    11th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! But I would be happy just get back below 202. Repeat until I hit either or both!

It turned out to be good comfort food for DS1 just returning from a work trip to Dubai and my DIL that is now 6 months pregnant and didn’t cook for herself while he was gone.
    Day 76: Mon, 9/27: 202.7 Walked 3.4 miles, ? Cal, ? Net carbs, AF. Dined out at Hearsay and ordered a Mojito mocktail (requested less sugar) since we were attending a Squeeze + Halls & Oates concert at Woodlands Pavilion an hour from home. Loved the food DH & I split! AHI TUNA FLATBREAD - rare tuna, micro greens, carrot, cucumber, gochujang aioli, wasabi caviar.

    Day 77: Tues, 9/28: 203.9 Walked 3 + 1.4 miles, 2093 cal, 154 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Snack monster got to me today … 2 Nestles Lil Drum ice cream, mixed nuts, peanut butter and sugar free dark chocolate most between lunch and dinner! No wonder my meal planning is not working to get the scale moving in the right direction.
    Day 78: Wed, 9/29: 203.6 Walked 1.3 Miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2047 cal, 149 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Rain which limited my walk. Teacher introduced a new exercise routine today that we’ll be using for the next 3 months. It was a killer … including 6+ min of slow motion squats with a weight bar. We did these before but not in real real slow 8 count up 8 count down. I’m really sore this morning!
    Day 79: Thurs, 9/30: 203.7 Walked 3 Miles, 1574 cal, 126 net carbs, AF. Spent the day shopping & lunch with DD. She signed on with a new firm! And her husband also signed with a new company.

    Day 80: Fri, 10/1: 204.0 Walked 2.2 + 4 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1703 cal, 92 net carbs, AF. Made my 100 mile goal for September WHEW! (102.6) No side effects from the booster which was a nice surprise. Fried chicken for lunch & then chicken sausage jambalaya for dinner were not the best choices … where were my veggies yesterday?
    Day 81: Sat, 10/2: 203.7 Walked 3 miles in the rain then bathed the dog since we were already wet! Evening walk 1.3 miles. 1520 cal, 75net carbs, 1 glass wine. Leaving out this morning!
    Morning WI before starting our road trip.
    12th Week Goal Weight: 200.anything! But I would be happy just get back below 202. Repeat until I hit either or both!
    12th Week Actual Weight: 203.7
    12th Week Weight Loss: +.8

    Day of reckoning … What’s the damage?
    Day 97: Mon, 10/18: 207.6 . Up 3.9 pounds since I left. Lots of walking & hiking 43+ miles for exercise however the opposite of activity was driving 2900 miles … so lots of sitting. Then the rest obviously is revealed in the scale … eating at restaurants 16 days for breakfast lunch & dinner, snacking daily on M&Ms, not enough water, too much alcohol. I’m not surprised. If I had just ordered better and not given into biscuits, fries, etc it would have been much better. But it is what it is. Now to focus and tackle the gain before it gets comfortable.

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 61, 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 -

    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? 1226 in the Green
    Day 58: Thurs, 9/9: 134.1 - That is a nice drop. Yesterday's numbers are not sustainable (burned more than I ate!), but glad that they made a difference. 1060 in the Green
    Day 59: Fri, 9/10: 133.7 - Planned indulgences tonight after work. 390 in the Green
    Day 60: Sat, 9/11: 134.1 - I had some food from Spice Hut, the Indian restaurant where I work. Mutter Paneer. It was really good, I ate half. This is only the second time that I have had food from there since April. With all of the activity that I had, I have skimmed 2.2 pounds off of the beginning of this week. 12 in the Green

    9th Week Goal Weight: 133.3
    9th Week Actual Weight: 134.1
    Calorie deficit totals: 4617 enough to lose a pound and I did

    Day 61: Sun, 9/12: DNW, woke up at 3am and had water, coffee, etc. I expected to be able to go back to sleep before my 5pm shift, but couldn't. 908 in the Green
    Day 62: Mon, 9/13: 137.8 - This weight is unacceptable, I hit it last November. I have got a frantic week and then am gone on 5 days vacation. I will be taking rice cakes and almond butter for sure on my trip. 350 in the Green
    Day 63: Tues, 9/14: 134.7 - Okay. Scrambling to get a few things done before I leave at 3pm on Thursday. Tomatoes and Peppers are now covered in case of frost while I am gone. Doing extra shifts at work to allow for my upcoming time off. 927 in the Green
    Day 64: Wed, 9/15: 133.9 - 2 more workdays before vacay : - ) 336 in the Green
    Day 65: Thurs, 9/16: 134.4 1133 in the Green
    Day 66: Fri, 9/17: 132.9 - Started this 100 off at 132.2. Worked and then traveled yesterday. Yes, I brought my scale. I did not eat nearly enough yesterday. Skating today for the first time this season : - ) 949 in the Green
    Day 67: Sat, 9/18: 131.8 - Hard pressed to get enough calories in, I supplemented with Pringles, champagne, and brandy last night :p 1375 in the Green


    10th Week Goal Weight: 131.1
    10th Week Actual Weight: 131.8 - That scary spike up to 137.8 this week? Well, I just hope to never see that again!
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 definitely enough to lose a pound or more


    Day 68: Sun, 9/19: 132.1 - I was awake way too early, I expect that my weight would be less had I not weighed at 4am. Having said that, I plan to indulge over the next few days. Today is a driving day, I will get a workout in before I hit the road. 391 in the Green
    Day 69: Mon, 9/20: 132.8 - My 61st birthday, so down 7.3 pounds since my 60th. I'll take it : - ) Still up above my 100 day start weight, and planning on indulging some more today. Perhaps my high output days will save me a little. 27 in the Green
    Day 70: Tues, 9/21: 134.0 - Hiked all day yesterday, hopefully that will catch up on the scale in the days to come. Driving home today. I will get a nice walk and workout in before that. I have an appointment in Cranbrook to get my silver roots dyed out - I usually do it, but am treating myself : - ) 340 in the Green
    Day 71: Wed, 9/22: 134.8 - Up 2 pounds since my birthday! Home now and will be back to work. 512 in the Green
    Day 72: Thurs, 9/23: 134.5 - My calorie burn output is so much less this week in comparison to my input. I am not going to have the 300 calories of hummus with my peppers as my work snack today. 815 in the Green
    Day 73: Fri, 9/24: 134.1 - Skipping the hummus helped, and that in turn helped my activity output number. The fresh peppers from my garden were completely delicious even without the hummus. 26 days to get back to my start weight. 518 in the Green
    Day 74: Sat, 9/25: 133.7 - Great active days and 1 bad day led to a gain. 405 in the Green
    11th Week Goal Weight:
    11th Week Actual Weight: 133.7 - Up 1.6 pounds over the week : - (
    Calorie deficit totals: 3008 - Not enough to lose a pound

    Day 75: Sun, 9/26: 132.9 - Okay, getting closer to my start weight 75 days ago. 1165 in the Green
    Day 76: Mon, 9/27: 134.4 - Don't know why. I was getting closer to my start weight. I will try to be patient and stay "good" even though I am working splits most of the week and dinners will be late. 751 in the Green
    Day 77: Tues, 9/28: ?? 733 in the Green
    Day 78: Wed, 9/29: 134.8 - Looks like my yesterday's post didn't "take". These late dinners are taking a toll, but it is my work schedule which doesn't look like it will change. I am working splits until we replace the girl that moved away. Calorie input is on point, calorie output is on point. Looks like time of day of eating does make a difference. Skating starts mid-October here, but I may be working during public skating. The ice on the lakes doesn't freeze until well into December. Kind of resigning myself into the mid 130s for now. 776 in the Green.
    Day 79: Thurs, 9/30: 133.4 - I am doing better with my calorie deficit this week compared to last. I really don't lose weight unless I average at least a 500 deficit each day. 376 in the Green
    Day 80: Fri, 10/1: 134.4 - Kind of expected, my deficit was lower yesterday because I consumed more calories. 40 in the Green
    Day 81: Sat, 10/2: 133.9 - Day off, going to go for a hike, have a good workout, and spend most of the day in the yard getting some harvest before the temps dip below freezing in a week from now. 737 in the Green

    12th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 (That would be a 1 pound loss in 81 days)
    12th Week Actual Weight: 133.9
    Calorie deficit totals: 5978 - More than enough to lose a pound
    Day 82: Sun, 10/3: 135.4 - I don't get it, not happy with this number after an awesome active day with healthy choices. 769 in the Green
    Day 83: Mon, 10/4: 135.4 - Does my body just want to be this weight? Pants are tight! Late dinners with my work schedule are probably not helping. 715 in the Green
    Day 84: Tues, 10/5: 134.3 - Late dinners are not going to be going away any time soon, but glad to be down slightly. 476 in the Green
    Day 85: Wed, 10/6: 133.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the later dinners? 213 in the Green
    Day 86: Thurs, 10/7: 134.5 - Going out for Jamaican food with a friend tomorrow night, then Turkey, stuffing, gravy, libations etc. start Saturday and go for 3 days. Going to get some extra activity in today and keep my eating light. 669 in the Green
    Day 87: Fri, 10/8: 134.7 - kind of expected a drop this morning, but nope.
    Day 88: Sat, 10/9: 136.4 - Dinner out at a restaurant. This is exactly why I haven't gone out to eat in a restaurant in years - weight gain. Thanksgiving dinner for the next 3, and although it will be homemade, it will include all kinds of fattening stuff. 974 in the Green

    13th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 88 days!
    13th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - 1 dinner out really got me.
    Calorie deficit totals: 4022 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 89: Sun, 10/10: 137.4 - 1st day of Thanksgiving eating. I will try to cut the portions over the next 2. It took me 300 days to take off what I just put on, but whatever, really delicious foods. 509 in the Green
    Day 90: Mon, 10/11: 137.0 - Lots more Turkey with all the trimmings to eat still. I will try to gets lots of activity in. 1387 in the Green
    Day 91: Tues, 10/12: 136.2 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, 5 hours digging up potatoes on top of workouts and work Only a few rows left to do in the potato garden, if the snow flies I will at least have gotten most of them out. Portioning out my Thanksgiving leftovers still. 811 in the Green
    Day 92: Wed, 10/13: 135.5 - A couple more days of Thanksgiving leftovers still, but they are all portioned out. Glad to see the scale moving back down after that one dinner out and feasting for Thanksgiving. 388 in the Green
    Day 93: Thurs, 10/14: 135.9 - Had restaurant food last night, this could spike me for a few days. Hoping not though. I had Daal Makhni, but no rice or appies. 186 in the Green
    Day 94: Fri, 10/15: 135.6 - I need to get more motivated, maybe today. 449 in the Green
    Day 95: Sat, 10/16: 136.7 - Absolutely no reason for the gain - this makes me un-motivated. 333 in the Green

    14th Week Goal Weight: 131.2 - I want to have lost at least a pound over 95 days!
    14th Week Actual Weight: 136.7 : - (
    Calorie deficit totals: 4033 - Enough to lose a pound


    Day 96: Sun, 10/17: 137.2 - Ouch. I don't get it. Yikes. 1009 in the Green
    Day 97: Mon, 10/18: 135.9 - This will be my second 100 where I have gained. Not giving up though.

Hopefully, knowing that, I will be able to do better on my eating. Today the well company comes back. Of course, it breaks down when they are NOT here, instead of when they are. This time, I hope they can figure out from the patterns what is going on. Praying it’s adjustments and not new pump or well. I am starving already (which happens after a day of eating with all caution to the wind). It won’t be easy, but I’ve got to be creative today and make it a good day.

    Day 88 – 10/09 …..184.0

    Day 89 – 10/10 …..185.6……My daughter moved back in last night with my 3 year old grandson. Figuring out meals for me will be tough. She has already brought us Chinese food which I think caused water retention this morning. I was only over by around 100 yesterday after eating a yogurt. So I’m thinking the sodium. Either that or cortisol. This is stressful while so many are in the house on these reno projects too. I can barely walk through between drywall buckets, pain buckets, boxes of ceramic tile and toys. I’ll try to stay positive.
    Day 90 – 10/11 …..185.6……(Trend weight 188.1)My daughter brought in over $150.00 worth of Halloween candy for a party she had been planning. She has now had to cancel it due to her circumstances. I’m talking Reeses pumpkins, kit-kats, Hershey kisses galore, the whole 9 yards. Today I am going to carry the whole huge basket and bags upstairs to get it out of my face. My hips don’t need it and neither does my diabetes. I ate many pieces yesterday. I suspect it will show up on the scale sooner or later since I am babysitting now and can’t get out at all. I’ll need to make a plan. I adore my DGS but he is demanding and takes up every moment of my time. Lots to figure out here.
    Day 91 – 10/12 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.9) My daughter will be making goodie bags for the kids originally invited to her Halloween party she’s cancelled. She will hand deliver them. Anything leftover she will take to work. It was a nice and fruitful talk. Travel today. Dinner will be out so I expect an uptick tomorrow. I wish there had been a small change on the scale today because yesterday was an excellent day for me. However, all good things come to those who wait, so Do You Hear Me Universe? I’m Waiting…….
    Day 92 – 10/13 …..187.0……(Trend weight 187.8) Expected uptick from yesterday’s travel. Started the day horribly with my grandson age 3 who wouldn’t stop screaming, writhing on the floor and kicking. He was not in a good mood at all. I already feel drained. Today is not going to be a good day. That is clear. Poor little fella has been uprooted from his home and so I understand his frustration. But it doesn’t make it any easier, especially physically. It took two of us getting kicked in the face, just to get him standing to get his clothes on. I’m already reminding myself about every 3 minutes that I will not emotionally eat today or that I will not take the easy way out and eat something that doesn’t require a lot of planning due to exhaustion. That usually has more calories and carbs. I’ve got to try to offset today's travel uptick while figuring out how to deal with 4 different people and 4 different eating tastes and habits including my Autistic son and his white food. 7 workers (including one's family members who will sit at my kitchen table all day) expected throughout the day today, overlapping. Last one will leave about 9:30 pm. I’m not looking forward to this day. DGS sets the whole tone for all of us in the morning. BTW, the one who leaves latest is the one with the family. My dinner is often very late.

    Day 93 – 10/14 …..186.2……(Trend weight 187.6) Travel weight oozing back out. Happy to see it. Downward trend going well too. My daughter made pumpkin cheesecake for dessert tonight from scratch which is pretty cruel. I will have one piece and allow for it, but I will have to have her padlock me in at night as I stay up late and my bedroom is not far from the refrigerator for 2nds. Control……Not just now, ……for Life……

    Day 94 – 10/15 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.4) Nice to see a drop. Travel today . Here comes the yo-yo.
    Day 95 – 10/16 …..185.8……(Trend weight 187.3) This is actually pretty good after a travel day where my movement and steps were so low I had to blink a couple of times and check them again. I hope nothing continues to creep in from it, especially when we are so close to the end of this round. I will try to make today a good day although movement will be difficult in the rain and with the house full of people. What I can when I can, right?
    Day 96 – 10/17 …..186.2……(Trend weight 187.2) The continued uptick from travel I suppose since yesterday was an all-around excellent day. Daughter worked a side-job and was gone most of the day. DGS was with his dad. I ate smart and got in my steps and some exercise. However, no TMI x 2 so it is difficult to gauge real progress or damage. I am still down 9 pounds this round which is only about 3 pounds average per month. I was hoping to do better than that but, at this day & age, I suppose I will take anything my body gives me. Slow progress yesterday in the reno as only the guy with his family showed up. No tile man, no floor man, no explanations or cancel calls. The work ethic in this area sucks!
    Day 97 – 10/18 …..185.6……(Trend weight 187.0) My friend said that the deep nasal covid test felt like they put the q-tip up to her brain. It watered her eyes and caused a nose bleed they had a hard time stopping. I get that test today along with the EKG, my A1C and a blessings exam. All for my surgery Friday at the University Hospital Cancer Center. I will leave on Thursday and not be back until Saturday night. I my not be able to post of surgery day Friday but I will be back online asap. I will be in a University local hotel for both nights of my stay. They want me near in case my glucose goes any higher after surgery (It’s already running so high), and for other surgical reasons. There will be lots of restaurant foods for 3 days and I expect the scale increase will likely tip 5 extra pounds as a day trip can typically cost me between 2 and 3 pounds. That is very disheartening but I’ve got bigger worries to contend with. Let’s hope the pathology comes up clear! I’ll try to post Thursday before I leave and Saturday night when I get back. I’ll miss you all…..

    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)

    Let my low 204s slip away :(

    Day 19: Sun, 8/1: 205.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 2.2 miles completing my 100 miles in July walking the dog! Gardening, fishing, 1435 cal, 86 net carbs, AF.
    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 23: Thurs, 8/5: 202.5 Walked 3.4 + 1 miles, Strength class 1 hr, 1532 cal, 83 net carbs, AF. Over 15.5k steps. Took my DIL out for birthday lunch at Bistro Menil and went to the Menil Art Museum. It is Houston Restaurant Weeks all of August! LOTS of really nice places that have special menus.

    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 202.9 Walked 3 + 1 miles, swam laps 400m, 1682 cal, 83 net carbs, AF.
    🩺 Annual Physical & bloodwork today so fasting this morning.
    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.

    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.

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.

    Oct Total 43.1 miles

    Day of reckoning … What’s the damage?
    Day 97: Mon, 10/18: 207.6 . Up 3.9 pounds since I left. Lots of walking & hiking 43+ miles for exercise however the opposite of activity was driving 2900 miles … so lots of sitting. Then the rest obviously is revealed in the scale … eating at restaurants 16 days for breakfast lunch & dinner, snacking daily on M&Ms, not enough water, too much alcohol. I’m not surprised. If I had just ordered better and not given into biscuits, fries, etc it would have been much better. But it is what it is. Now to focus and tackle the gain before it gets comfortable.
