    100 Days of Accountability 10/22-1/29
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 61, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 207 (10/21)
    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

    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: Fri, 10/22: 206.8 Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr, 2105 cal, 102 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 2: Sat, 10/23 206.1 Walked 3.2 miles, gardening, 1894 cal, 74 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    1st Week Goal Weight: Happy to lose any of this darn ~4 lb gain from 16 day road trip vacation in October!
    1st Week Actual Weight: 206.1

    Day 3: Sun, 10/24: 206.8 Walked 3 miles, 1784 cal, 83 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.
    Day 4: Mon, 10/25: 205.9 Walked 4 miles, Bike 20 min, 1808 cal, 110 net carbs, AF.
    Day 5: Tues, 10/26: 207.0 [/b] Walked 4.75 miles, 2190 cal, 129 net carbs, Torchy’s Tini. Weight up due to snacks not meals. Went to Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo plus John Waite concert last night. They still have great voices! Really enjoyed John Waite’s opener as he sang a wide variety of songs.
    Day 6: Wed, 10/27: 208.9 🎂 Too much celebrating this week. 61 Bday bring it on! Sounds like I’m going to have 2 grand babies … end of Dec 2021 and then mid June 2022. Walked 3.3 miles, Strength Training 1 hr (this class is wearing me out I’m useless after returning home for hours on end!), 2282 cal, 249 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Our dog ate the steak and then Plan B: Pizza did me in on carbs & calories! GO ASTROS!
    Day 7: Thurs, 10/28: 207.8 Walked 3.1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Decided to take a little break and not track but choose wisely. That worked right up until the Dove dark chocolate raspberry sorbet bar at 10pm.
    Day 8: Fri, 10/29: 208.5 @ fishing camp 🎣 Strength Training 1 hr, no walk, long car drive, 2037 cal, 226 net carbs, AF.
    Day 9: Sat: 10/30: 207.9 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 2.6 miles, fishing, 1224 cal, 112 net carbs, AF.
    Oct Total 80.1 miles

    2nd Week Goal Weight: <205
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 207.9

    Day 10: Sun: 10/31: 209.0 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles, fishing caught 21” Speckled Trout, 1653 cal, 124 net carbs, 3 drinks. Way too many chips (even counting them) with fried fresh fish tacos w/ avocado. Driving home today to spend the evening with our adult kids eating traditional chili and handing out full size (not fun size) M&Ms candy while we sit out on the driveway. Taking my mom with us for a long visit.
    Day 11: Mon: 11/1: 209.6 Long drive, .5 mile walk, bad food choices, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Time to turn things around and get focused on getting back under 205.
    Brought my mom back to visit for the baby shower at the end of the week as well as doctor’s visits she scheduled in Houston.
    Day 12: Tues: 11/2: 207.9 Walked 3.2 miles, gardening, 1692 cal, 70 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Bought and planted flowers yesterday in front of my house! Snapdragons, Pansies, Kale, Alyssum, and a few extra for the large pot next to the door. Great exercise weeding digging planting ... not to mention lugging big bags of mulch.
    Day 13: Wed: 11/3: 207.7 Walked .6 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1848 cal, 171 net carbs, AF. Lots of shopping & mom’s doctors visits. But did cook chicken enchilada soup (added zucchini) in crock pot so we had a healthier dinner when we returned home!
    https://www.skinnytaste.com/crock-pot-chicken-enchilada-soup/
    My mother self diagnosis and medicates usually. She has had neuropathy for 4 years but would not see someone about it. Took my mom to a doctor about her neuropathy in her feet & lower legs. Her doc has not done A1c lab work but this one thinks she might be pre-diabetic so she will get more lab work to check. He is switching her from over the internet TrueWell (150 mg alpha-lipoid acid) to EBM’s pharmaceutical grade EB-N6 (600 mg alpha-lipoid acid). Said she is not a candidate for his program to reverse with surgery. She is 85 (5’4” 175 lbs) and eats primarily carbs with few vegetables & protein. He recommended she start keto and then switch to Mediterranean diet. Read Sugar Crush and Fat for Fuel to better understand what she is doing to her body with all the carbs. We checked these books out from the library. She needs to walk, bike or swim at least 20 min 3x per week so I took her out for a short walk … she is active but doesn’t exercise. I also have her doing daily stretches and exercises for her sciatic nerve issue. It is hard to incorporate these changes in an 85 year old … but reinforces my path to healthier lifestyle and I need to get back focused on my own journey to lowering the number on the scale!
    Day 14: Thurs: 11/4: 207.5 Walked 3.8 miles, 1530 cal, 138 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Baked pumpkin cookies and pear cake for the baby shower on Saturday at my house. Also cooked a very large pot of chicken sausage gumbo to prep for all the company coming in Friday evening. Kitchen sort of day which was good activity given all the rain in the afternoon/evening.
    Day 15: Fri: 11/5: 208.3 No exercise, did not journal food, 2 glasses wine at my sisters … relatives are in town for the shower already and she cooked dinner for us. I was dressed for strength training class when my DIL called crying ~8am. My son is out of town and she is pregnant due late Dec. She was at the school where she teaches. Spotting/bleeding. Drove the 50 miles across Houston picked her up then drove back into town to the med center to see her doctor. All is fine with mom & baby no sign of preterm early labor. Small infection that can cause early contractions so antibiotics and she is good. Lunch out to feed her and then took her home to rest until my son arrived back home from AZ. Then back to my home to care for my mom who I had promised a mani pedi.
    Day 16: Sat: 11/6: 207.2 No exercise yet again. Did not journal but ate at home no restaurants! Long visit at the doctor’s office with mom, errand running for the baby shower, my son & his wife arrived from Austin, decorating the house … never seen so many balloons & star garland LOL, gumbo and late night talking with our adult kids over bottles of wine. 3 glasses wine.
    3rd Week Goal Weight: N/A <205
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 207.2
    3rd Week Weight Loss: .9
    It’s going to take me forever to get back < 205 and to this year’s goal of <200 if I don’t start paying more attention to what I put in my mouth and get back into my exercise routine.

    Day 17: Sun: 11/7: 208.3 No exercise, baby shower at my home took most of my time, no journaling food, AF.
    Day 18: Mon: 11/8: 207.9 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Wonderful jazz music brunch at Brennan’s with our adult children (they threw in their credit cards and would not let us pay), 60th birthday celebration for DH since we had the kids all together. Walked through our daughter’s new home built in 1948 … definitely a fixer upper in an up and coming area of town. She told her siblings she was pregnant at brunch. So much celebration this weekend. Taking my mom to the airport today and pulling the plug on gluttony for the rest of the week!
    Day 19: Tues: 11/9: 207.4 Walk 3 miles, Bike 20 min, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.

    I take it that you are measuring your waist every day but not your weight?

    Thanks Miyoka : - )
    I think that this is my 8th round.
    If I don't have 500 calories in the Green on the tracker (on average) I don't lose weight.

    Day 1: Fri, 10/22:- 134.0 - Using my EW from the last 100
    Day 2: Sat, 10/23 - 136.6 - Had a healthy day, I don't understand the big gain.
    1st Week Goal Weight: N/A
    1st Week Actual Weight: 136.6
    Excess calories burned (in the Green): 911

    Day 3: Sun, 10/24: 135.9 - very late dinner after a super long workday
    Day 4: Mon, 10/25: 135.4 - No split shift today just a regular day shift, so I will be home for dinner at a reasonable hour. I am going to have a burger on a Kaiser, so had better eat very light all day until then.
    Day 5: Tues, 10/26: 135.1 - Going back to split shifts today, trying to have smaller dinners when they are late
    Day 6: Wed, 10/27: 136.0 - Trying to stay positive. Absolutely no reason for this gain, not like there was at Thanksgiving.
    Day 7: Thurs, 10/28: 135.8 - Well, I ate an entire small takeout pizza last night, planning to have half only. I can't remember the last time that I had pizza (except for my own low cal Pita pizza). I gave into my frustrations that no matter what I seem to do I have been gaining weight, so basically said *kitten* it, I am having pizza.
    Day 8: Fri, 10/29: 136.6 - Pizza caught up with me as I knew that it would. Kind of worth it : - )
    Day 9: Sat: 10/30:

    2nd Week Goal Weight: I want to erase the gains from the last 100 and the one before - 0.8 and 1.8 = 2.6
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: N/A
    Excess calories burned (in the Green): 2229 - not enough to lose a pound

    Day 10: Sun: 10/31: DNW
    Day 11: Mon: 11/1: 137.1 - Too high. I will work hard on this. Really glad that I have an active job.
    Day 12: Tues: 11/2: 136.4 - Long way to go to get back to that 130.6 and beyond, but going in the right direction.
    Day 13: Wed: 11/3: 135.6 - 2 nights of steak and prawns, but only half each night.
    Day 14: Thurs: 11/4: 135.3 - Really happy to see this coming down. Back to chicken breasts and veggies for dinners. Tonight I will be having dinner at a "normal" time, so hoping to see a nice drop on the scale tomorrow.
    Day 15: Fri: 11/5: 135.0 - Glad to see it coming down, but I am being too strict with myself which is not a recipe for the longterm.
    Day 16: Sat: 11/6: 136.5 - not happy about the number, especially since I was at 135.0 yesterday. Day off today with lots of activity and dinner at a reasonable time.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: 133
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 136.5 - 0.6 down for the week, I'll take it even though i think that it is inflated.
    Excess calories burned (in the Green): 4417 - more than enough to lose a pound

    Day 17: Sun: 11/7: 137.5 - Completely don't understand this gain. Food and Exercise has been on point.
    Day 18: Mon: 11/8: 136.9 - Dinner will be at a "normal" time until the weekend when I go back to split shifts. Hoping that this makes a dent in this weight.
    Day 19: Tues: 11/9: 136.2 - Trying to keep an average of 500 per day in the "Green". I haven't had Ribs in 2 months, but my weight is still up so high, pants are tight.

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ October 22, 2021 through January 29, 2022
    My Name is Donna, Age 61. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan.


    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


    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    Starting Weight from End of Last Challenge October 21, 2021 : : 185.2
    Day 01…..10/22…..DNW…..(Trend weight xxxxx)
    Day 02…..10/23…..DNW…..(Trend weight 186.8)
    Day 03…..10/24…..188.2…..(Trend weight 186.9)
    Day 04…..10/25…..187.0…..(Trend weight 186.9)
    Day 05…..10/26…..188.0…..(Trend weight 187.0)
    Day 06…..10/27…..188.2…..(Trend weight 186.8)
    Day 07…..10/28…..189.2…..(Trend weight 187.2)
    Day 08…..10/29…..186.6…..(Trend weight 187.2)
    Day 09…..10/30…..188.0…..(Trend weight 187.3)
    Day 10…..10/31…..188.2…..(Trend weight 187.2)

    Weight Loss in October (partial month) ……………….. 3.0 lbs GAINED in 10 days!
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..3.0 lb gain


    Day 11…..11/01…..189.4…..(Trend weight 187.7) Dancing dangerously around the 190 mark. Gotta get my Fitness Marshall or my free form dancing with Alexa back on and start dancing back in the right direction. I ate all junk yesterday and I haven’t completed my logging since before surgery. DGS keeps my hands full at all times!

    Day 12…..11/02…..189.0…..(Trend weight 187.8) I hate that it’s trending upward. Like the universe has no faith in my future! I’ll show them!
    Day 13…..11/03…..189.0…..(Trend weight 187.9) Good News Folks. No sign of cancer in my breast skin tissue! Pathology reported today. Today is a double day of celebration. May daughter who moved back in is celebrating her 27th birthday today. There will be a special dinner, cake, ice cream and lots of fun and love. I will try to watch portion control but the menu will put me over the top of my goals. Tomorrow back on 100% track. Lots of snow last night. Everything covered in lasting white here. It’s very pretty but not very useful. I will have to get creative on movement again today.
    Day 14…..11/04…..189.6…..(Trend weight 188.1)The celebrations are over. It’s time to get serious now. Today I take my DGS’s to their hair appointments and dinner afterward. I will not be ordering. Today will be a good day. I have no choice. Look how close I am to the 190’s again!
    Day 15…..11/05…..188.8…..(Trend weight 188.2) Happy face on the scale going down. Sad face on the trend weight still going up. Gotta clean up this mess!
    Day 16…..11/06…..188.0…..(Trend weight 188.2) More progress but still trying to turn that trend weight around. Inch by inch….pound by pound (or fraction thereof!).

    Day 17…..11/07…..189.0…..(Trend weight 188.2) A day very similar to yesterday but a gain this time. I’m sure it’s due to no TMI. I also had a bit fewer steps yesterday and not as much water as usual. Today I rake with a small crew of help. This should get in more steps and calorie burn. Just what the doctor ordered! Speaking of doctor…..I hope this will not cause problems with my stitches healing. I will try not to get over-zealous!
    Day 18…..11/08…..189.2…..(Trend weight 188.2) Over 700 calories burned just in raking. But you can’t outrun the fork, believe me, I’ve tried!
    Day 19…..11/09…..189.6…..(Trend weight 188.4) No TMI again. Very early weigh-in after, essentially, no sleep and all those other excuses. Yesterday it was not on my daughter. It was on me. I know what good habits are. I know what low calorie is and what low carb can do to help me. I recognize the right foods. It’s time to stop glancing at it all and start staring at what I need to do. It has been out of control since just before my surgery.

    F41 5'4
    Highest weight: 180.8lbs July 5th '21
    Current weight: 147.2lbs
    Challenge goal weight: 135lbs
    Ultimate goal weight: Under 130lbs


    Day 1: Fri, 10/22: 147.2 (trend 149.1)
    Day 2: Sat, 10/23 149.4 (trend 149.2) Ate a lot of bulky low cal food yesterday, so I'm guessing this gain is mainly waste. Not a great start!
    1st Week Goal Weight: 147.2
    1st Week Actual Weight: 149.4

    Day 3: Sun, 10/24: 148.2 (trend 149.0) Settling back down
    Day 4: Mon, 10/25: 148.6 (trend 148.9)Feel like I'm going backwards
    Day 5: Tues, 10/26: 147.4 (trend 148.7)Almost back where I started

    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 61, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 207 (10/21)
    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

    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)

    My mother self diagnosis and medicates usually. She has had neuropathy for 4 years but would not see someone about it. Took my mom to a doctor about her neuropathy in her feet & lower legs. Her doc has not done A1c lab work but this one thinks she might be pre-diabetic so she will get more lab work to check. He is switching her from over the internet TrueWell (150 mg alpha-lipoid acid) to EBM’s pharmaceutical grade EB-N6 (600 mg alpha-lipoid acid). Said she is not a candidate for his program to reverse with surgery. She is 85 (5’4” 175 lbs) and eats primarily carbs with few vegetables & protein. He recommended she start keto and then switch to Mediterranean diet. Read Sugar Crush and Fat for Fuel to better understand what she is doing to her body with all the carbs. We checked these books out from the library. She needs to walk, bike or swim at least 20 min 3x per week so I took her out for a short walk … she is active but doesn’t exercise. I also have her doing daily stretches and exercises for her sciatic nerve issue. It is hard to incorporate these changes in an 85 year old … but reinforces my path to healthier lifestyle and I need to get back focused on my own journey to lowering the number on the scale!
    Day 14: Thurs: 11/4: 207.5 Walked 3.8 miles, 1530 cal, 138 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Baked pumpkin cookies and pear cake for the baby shower on Saturday at my house. Also cooked a very large pot of chicken sausage gumbo to prep for all the company coming in Friday evening. Kitchen sort of day which was good activity given all the rain in the afternoon/evening.
    Day 15: Fri: 11/5: 208.3 No exercise, did not journal food, 2 glasses wine at my sisters … relatives are in town for the shower already and she cooked dinner for us. I was dressed for strength training class when my DIL called crying ~8am. My son is out of town and she is pregnant due late Dec. She was at the school where she teaches. Spotting/bleeding. Drove the 50 miles across Houston picked her up then drove back into town to the med center to see her doctor. All is fine with mom & baby no sign of preterm early labor. Small infection that can cause early contractions so antibiotics and she is good. Lunch out to feed her and then took her home to rest until my son arrived back home from AZ. Then back to my home to care for my mom who I had promised a mani pedi.
    Day 16: Sat: 11/6: 207.2 No exercise yet again. Did not journal but ate at home no restaurants! Long visit at the doctor’s office with mom, errand running for the baby shower, my son & his wife arrived from Austin, decorating the house … never seen so many balloons & star garland LOL, gumbo and late night talking with our adult kids over bottles of wine. 3 glasses wine.
    3rd Week Goal Weight: N/A <205
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 207.2
    3rd Week Weight Loss: .9
    It’s going to take me forever to get back < 205 and to this year’s goal of <200 if I don’t start paying more attention to what I put in my mouth and get back into my exercise routine.

    Day 17: Sun: 11/7: 208.3 No exercise, baby shower at my home took most of my time, no journaling food, AF.
    Day 18: Mon: 11/8: 207.9 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Wonderful jazz music brunch at Brennan’s with our adult children (they threw in their credit cards and would not let us pay), 60th birthday celebration for DH since we had the kids all together. Walked through our daughter’s new home built in 1948 … definitely a fixer upper in an up and coming area of town. She told her siblings she was pregnant at brunch. So much celebration this weekend. Taking my mom to the airport today and pulling the plug on gluttony for the rest of the week!
    Day 19: Tues: 11/9: 207.4 Walk 3 miles, Bike 20 min, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    Day 20: Wed: 11/10: 206.7 Walked 1.3 + 1.3, Strength Training 1 hr, weeding garden, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Still not journalling my food but I am paying more attention Mon & Tues. TODAY is the day I pull it all back together water, tracking every bite and exercise. Took the leftover pumpkin cookies & pear cake from the baby shower to alumnae social event last night instead of a bottle of wine. All the sweet temptations are gone!
