    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) NOTE: Low 201.1 in August 2021
    2022 SW: 209 BMI 37.0 (1/1/2022)
    UGW: 165 BMI 29.2 Overweight NOT Obese

    * 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 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.

    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.

    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 miles, 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!
    Day 21: Thurs: 11/11: 205.5 Walked 1.6 + 3.1 + 1 miles, 1524 cal, 114 net carbs, AF. Donated blood (targeting 4x per year). Started journaling my food for the day in the morning again and then updating it throughout the day. Definitely makes me think before putting something else in my tummy and I’m more accountable.

    Weight is rising before the holidays even get here! I need a mental adjustment because I’ve gotten into the “I don’t give a flying fig” attitude. But in reality I do! I’m going to be on point Sat-Wed this week to prove to myself that this can be done so that the scale doesn’t tip over into the tens (210) on Thanksgiving.

    Day 31: Sun, 11/21: 208.5 Walked .6 + 3 miles, 1860 cal, 58 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Meals were pretty good but I got into the snacks in the afternoon. Steak night and my sister joined us which leads to more wine.
    Day 32: Mon, 11/22: 207.0 Walked 3.6 miles, 2042 cal, 69 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Made this yummy Olive Garden like soup recipe Zuppa Toscana Soup but with cauliflower instead of potatoes. I use frozen cauliflower flowerets and spinach (draining them before adding to the pot). https://www.shugarysweets.com/low-carb-keto-zuppa-toscana-soup-recipe/
    Day 33: Tues, 11/23: 207.5 Walked 3.6 + 1.4 miles, 1728 cal, 69 net carbs, AF. 2nd Shingrix vaccine (Shingles) and Tdap vaccine (Whopping Cough). Whooping Cough vaccine is recommended at least 2 weeks before being around a newborn and of course this new grandma is going to heed the advice! So 2021 we got 7 vaccines: 3x COVID, 2x Shingles, Flu, Tdap … I call this fully vaccinated 😂
    Day 34: Wed, 11/24: 208.5 @ 3am Strength Training 1 hr, no walk (DH walked the dogs while I was at class), 1894 cal, 212 net carbs, AF. Easily made it through class but then the vaccines from yesterday really kicked in and knocked both DH & I off our feet. Tired! Headache! Chipotle for lunch and Grimaldi’s Pizza for dinner. Not the best choices but I’m not up to fighting the battle. What is it they say? Feed a fever 🤒
    Should You Feed a Cold and Starve a Fever? - The answer is no. In actuality, you should feed both a cold and a fever — and starve neither.
    Day 35: Thurs, 11/25: 206.6 Walked 1 + 3 miles, 2217 cal, 96 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Still very tired yesterday… up at 3am when fever broke. Enjoyed lunch and decorating a tree for TX Children’s Hospital with DD and put out my outside Christmas lights. Woke up feeling better this morning! Tracking all my food the good the bad is working as usual. The trend is going down. I’m hosting lots of family today … I’ll try to be good :)
    Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃
    Day 36: Fri, 11/26: 208.6 Walk cut short due to it raining on us! Walked 1.3 miles, 2783 cal, 244 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Lovely day shared with lots of family but as always way too much food!
    Day 37: Sat, 11/27: 208.4 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles with the dogs after a long drive. No fishing Friday … too much wind. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.

    I can do better!

    Day 38: Sun, 11/28: 209.5 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles, fishing, not tracking food. Chips, pie, and drinks are damaging any success I’m making with good choices at meal time. Burned my hand which was not a good excuse to drink bourbon but I soothed it with Aloe on the hand and a few drinks instead of pain meds. TODAY is a good day to start fresh.
    Day 39: Mon, 11/29: 209.3 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 2.5 + .5 miles, fishing, 1404 cal, 123 net carbs, AF.

    Day 42: Thurs, 12/2: 209.7 Walked 1.5 miles, long drive in the car, 1791 cal, 145 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 43: Fri, 12/3: 209.8 Walked 3 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2171 cal, 205 net carbs, AF.
    Day 44: Sat, 12/4: 207.7 Walked 2.7 + 1.3 miles, 1797 cal, 202 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.

    Day 47: Tues, 12/7: 208.6 Walked 1.3 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Planned meals and did well but lacked green veggies in the house.
    Day 48: Wed, 12/8: 207.8 Walked 1.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, shopping, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Dinner out Italian again but I ordered grilled crab cakes. Went to a play (TUTS Little Mermaid) with my sister, DD and DIL which was a nice change of pace but it was a late night.
    Day 49: Thurs, 12/9: 207.5 Walked 2.8 + 1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Healthier eating and this time I included veggies! But I’m craving and snacking on Simply Jif by the spoonful.
    Day 50: Fri, 12/10: 206.6 Walked .7 + 1.5 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Doing great with meals but my snacking is still off … Snickers and then opened a bag of Fritos after coming home from grocery store.
    Pregnant DIL was in a car accident. The driver fell asleep behind the wheel at 3pm!! Didn’t even tap the brakes and ran into the back of her. He and his daughter were taken away in ambulance … he was not conscience. DIL and the baby are okay. She was wearing a Pregnancy Bump Strap so no trauma across the tummy from the seat belt! Met her doctor at the hospital for observation and to throughly check her & baby out.
    Buy this for every pregnant woman in your life!

    Day 51: Sat: 12/11: 206.4 Walked 3.1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Went to doctor to see if I can do anything about a lingering 3 week cough before granddaughter is born. No root cause except drainage down throat (not nose). No sinus congestion or headache, no chest congestion, no fever, no aches, clear ears, negative Covid, etc. Got a steroid shot, Z-Pak, & take Zyrtec. Hopefully it will knock out whatever it is.

    Not journaling my food but being more conscience about what I eat and planning better. Need to get back to journaling and need to up my water!

    Day 52: Sun, 12/12: 207.2 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Red Beans & Rice with cornbread for dinner was yummy & warm but not great carb wise! I made an extra large batch! Taking some to DD & hubby who are packing to move into their new home and DIL & my son who are expecting our granddaughter soon. Some will be going into the freezer and some left for DH on the nights I’m out this week.
    Day 53: Mon, 12/13: 207.0 Walked 3.4 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Healthy meals planned after grocery shopping and restocking the kitchen! Attended a cookie party today where a friend makes a dozen different cookies (small bites) and invites 75 of her friends to drop by and rate them all. Yummy annual holiday fun activity! After the sugar high I had a lot of energy but really didn’t accomplish much.
    Day 54: Tues, 12/14: 206.4 Walked 3.2 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Made Party Trash mixture to take to various parties this week. Also made chicken sausage gumbo.

    Day 55: Wed, 12/15: 208.4 No walking, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. I ate gumbo for lunch and the party trash as a snack. Making those on Monday and not eating them was an accomplishment for Mon but not Tues. Made holiday cookies Tues which I ate 7! Then I went to a party with tons of food and sampled everything. I am NOT surprised by the number on the scale this morning.
    Day 56: Thurs, 12/16: 208.6 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Book club party and yet again lots of yummy food! I chair the local Zeta alumnae book club. We had 60 nominations for books this year. 21 of the ladies voted electronically and we now have our reading list for 2022!

    Day 58: Sat, 12/18: 208.6 Walked 3.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Feeling more normal again! Invited my sister over for dinner to talk through my mom’s comments this week … mom (85 who lost her husband last year) started dreaming about a life and getting married to an old friend in January but he was not interested. She had built it up in her head that she would move back to our home town, into society, travel to his many homes, etc. Trying to help her through the disappointment and not be embarrassed. I believe she is lonely and the situation is remote where she is living but she is unwilling nor can she afford to move closer to my sister and I (nor does she want to). She’ll be here for 2 weeks and my sister and I needed to get on the same page before seeing mom again.

    9th Week Goal Weight: <205 Repeat until I hit it!
    9th Week Actual Weight: 208.6
    9th Week Weight GAIN: 2.2
    This is what happens when you go to 4 parties in one week and do not resist the temptations and then eat party trash and holiday cookies all week long at home as well.

    Day 59: Sun, 12/19: 208.5 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Really lazy rainy day! Puzzles, wrapped gifts and reading “Sherlock Holmes & The Christmas Demon”.
    Day 60: Mon, 12/20: 207.7 No exercise, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Party yesterday afternoon where they served a beautiful steak salad at Taste of Texas in Houston. Very easy to work with on my portions and calories for the day. Though the evening I did have red beans and rice with sausage. Again kept my portion small but wondering if it will come back to bite me. A little shopping with DD since she is overwhelmed with the work, moving into a new house on Saturday and pregnancy. She needed gifts for her in-laws and didn't want to weight until Friday when she was off work. Took her a fun bag of new mom moving kit I made with a Gaiam Relax Back & Neck therapy wrap, bath bombs, shower steamers, Burt’s Bees Mama Belly Butter Skin Care, and a bag of homemade party trash she has been craving.
    Day 61: Tues, 12/21: 207.7 Walk 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Shopped for flowers and made several flower arrangements that cheer up the indoors (kitchen, den, dining, guest bedrooms, powder room)! DD’s brother in law that is living with her husband’s parents tested positive for covid so his family is in quarantine. Her friend that was to stay over some this week also tested positive. SOOOoooo trying to keep safe and looks like DD will spend Christmas Day with us.
    Day 62: Wed, 12/22: 206.7 Walk 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Son and his wife came in town for the holidays and are bouncing back and forth from our house to his siblings. It has been fun having all the kids around. LOTS of cooking!
    Day 63: Thurs, 12/23: DNW Totally forgot to step on the scale or if I did I forgot the #! ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Also did not exercise … not even a walk! Took the girls (DD and 2x DIL) for pedicures :) Guess I really should do something that includes my boys one of these days! After a day of everyone running in and out it was nice for my son & his wife to go to my daughter’s home and hang out with just the younger adults. DH & I had a quiet evening.
    Day 64: Fri, 12/24: 207.3 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, lots of cookies, dinner out 3 glasses Prosecco. Final doctor’s appt of the year (well woman) and she said I did not need to come back annually anymore. Guess I made it to the age of … return when you notice something different LOL. I’ll keep up the annual mammograms since both my sister and mom had breast cancer. Fun time with the girls (DD & DIL other DIL her mom is now in town for the holiday so she did not join us) … took them to a candle making shop where there were over 100 scents for us to experiment and create our own candles!
    Day 65: Sat, 12/25: 209.2 No exercise. Lots of prep and cooking for our annual Christmas Eve party. 3 glass wine.

    Too much everything! Loved being around my adult kids though.

    Day 66: Sun, 12/26: 209.0 Walked 3 miles (6 people & 3 dogs) + 1 miles, 1 glass wine. Lunch at my sisters and leftover seafood gumbo later in the evening. No pies or cakes this year but lots of cookies. I need to get back to journalling every bite … on Monday after the family leaves.
    Day 67: Mon, 12/27: 208.2 Walked 3.9 miles, 1 Torchy’s Tini @ lunch and 2 glasses wine for dinner. Got the house back to ourselves after lunch … so tons clothes and bedding to wash. TODAY not Jan 1 is the beginning of my focus on weight loss again. No more of the holiday excess.
    Day 68: Tues, 12/28: 207.7 Walked 2.4 miles, over 15k steps shopping! Started journalling for the day with breakfast but then nose dived at lunch with my pregnant daughter and her cravings for queso w/ chips & fried pickles … splitting a hamburger. Dinner was good but snacks were poorly chosen when I returned home. 2 glasses wine.
    Day 69: Wed, 12/29: 207.5 Walked 2.9 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Pretty good day but still not journalling my food which means that I eat more snacks and junk than I would if I was tracking.
    Day 70: Thurs, 12/30: 207.8 No exercise, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Helped my daughter create a BabyList.com baby registry and unpack more boxes in her house since she is off work this week.
    Day 71: Fri, 12/31: 209.0 Walked 2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, AF. Too many salty snacks yesterday. BUT I did clean out the fridge, start menu plans again for the new year and signed up for Strength Training 4x per week instead of just 2x. Why does the flip of the year always spur me on. Well I guess because I didn’t achieve and maintain my goal for 2021. My goal was to get under 200. I was this close at 201.1 in August but then let things get out of hand and of course the scale jumps right back up when you do something stupid … like forget this is a lifestyle and not a diet. So starting a fresh page in my journal and creating the lifestyle that will help me get down to my goal set my both of my doctors.
    Day 72: Sat, 1/1: 209.0 Walked 3.8 + 1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not sure what happen or why but my heart started racing on my evening walk as we neared home. Heartbeat jumped up to 196. Marked the activity on my Apple Watch and iPhone to share with my doctor. Otherwise, quiet evening and early to bed … ready to start the new year!
    HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🎉 Well 2021 was a wash in that I lost 11 lbs but gained 8 back for a total loss of 3 lbs. Lost all my progress starting in October on a 16 day roadtrip and then just kept sliding. BUT I did meet Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last . Now to make the goal I’ve set for the past 2 years … <200 (Dr set target to reach & stay under 200).

    I’m amazed that I held steady and did not gain this week. Now to make real progress in the new year! HELLO 2022!

    Day 73: Sun, 1/2: 208.0 Walked 3.1 miles, 1674 cal (-40), 82 net carbs, AF. Planned my meals and did well though I went over my original target because of Cheetos with lunch and the appetizers set out for our family dinner. I did avoid the wine so didn’t have to worry about those calories.
    My son and his wife are at the hospital … my granddaughter is on her way!!!
    Day 74: Mon, 1/3: 206.8 Walked 1.3 miles ~ 5pm even though it was windy & chilly for Houston. 1554 cal (-77), 30 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Yeah I’m tracking my food again … which makes a huge difference on the snacking. Once when I started to go into the pantry I decided to make black coffee instead :) Kept busy taking down some of the Christmas decor & walking up & down stairs many times. Long slow delivery. Still waiting on my baby granddaughter … as of 4am this morning.
    Day 75: Tues, 1/4: 207.5 Walked 3 + .9 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2214 cal (-441), 49 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My little granddaughter is adorable! 7 lbs 9 oz, 19 inch. Her mom & dad are doing well. They get out of the hospital today and we get to go meet her! I need to get on the ball if I'm going to be a slimmer, active, flexible, stronger, mobile grandma!
    Day 76: Wed, 1/5: 208.3 Walked 1.1 + .6 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2005 cal (-306),138 net carbs, AF. Totally expected to be up on the scale! I journaled every bite so it is not a surprise. Meal plans were great up until dinner of Popeyes fried chicken … when we visited our new granddaughter. They were getting out of the hospital, called wanted us to drive up, they live an hour away on the other side of Houston. Emotional rollercoaster of a day. The snacking on Snickers, peanut butter, ice cream and Cheetos should not have even been options in my house but they were. Starting today with water before coffee and better intentions.
    Day 77: Thurs, 1/6: 209.3 Walk 1.4 + 3 miles, 2232 cal (-312), 12 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Grazed again but less carbs. Wrong direction! Still need to work on limiting my calories.
    Day 78: Fri, 1/7: 208.9 2021 cal (-507), 119 net carbs. Strength Training 1 hr. No walk Wednesday. Drove (round trip 2 hrs) to son’s home to deliver something they needed and of course stayed to visit with my new granddaughter. Meals were okay but snacking is still bad … especially since I snuck in a snickers when grocery shopping which is a bad habit I need to break!
    Day 79: Sat, 1/8: 209.7 Walked 1.2 + 1.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1837 cal (-115), 137 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Really no explanation for the jump on the scale unless it is that I weighed in a couple of hours earlier … didn’t sleep. Snacking was reasonable. Wow yesterday just seemed to slip away from me … a little reading, too much computer time, dropped off old clothing to Women’s abuse shelter, groceries yet again and cooked double batch of jambalaya for family Sunday lunch.

    12th Week Goal Weight: <205 Repeat until I hit it!
    12th Week Actual Weight: 209.7

    Wrong way to start the year. Need to turn things around.

    Day 80: Sun, 1/9: 211.6 No exercise. Drove (6 hr round trip) to New Braunfels for a day trip with DH which was fun attending the IPMS ModelFiesta show, shopping, lunch at GristMill in Gruene historic district on the Guadalupe River. Returning home stopped at my sisters for dinner which had tons of carbs (black beans & sausage w/ rice & cornbread). 2195 cal (-889), 215 net carbs, 1 beer at lunch + 1 wine at dinner.
    Day 81: Mon, 1/10: 210.9 Walked 2.5 miles, 1954 cal (-302), 202 net carbs, AF. All my kids got together to meet our new granddaughter today! Fun times. Jambalaya, salad, strawberries, pineapple and King Cake for lunch then just DH & I shared cheese & olives for dinner.
    Day 82: Tues, 1/11: 208.6 Walked .9 + .3 miles, Strength Training class 1 hr, 1874 cal (-251), 25 net carbs, 96oz water, AF. Grocery shopped AND followed my menu plan for the most part … switched out Wed & Mon menus but still I’m on point regarding the planning and executing. Now to get myself back into the green and not have negative red highlighted number under remaining calories! AND to get the scale going down consistently instead of these awful swings.
    Day 83: Wed, 1/12: 207.4 Walked 1.4 + 3 miles, Strength Training class 1 hr, 1714 cal (231 green!), 92 net carbs, 96+oz water again, AF. Nice chilly day exercising and relaxing reading The Maid by Nita Prose (highly recommend it). Evening alumnae meeting was a casual PJ and pizza party night after the chaos of the holidays. Proud to say I went comfy in my poodle pajama bottoms that now fit again!
    Day 84: Thurs, 1/13: 207.6 Walked 2.9 miles, 1450 cal (203 green!), 44 net carbs, AF. Gumbo without rice :( but I stuck to my plan. Training class for volunteers teaching English to adults through our church. The program is kicking off again after stopping in March 2020. It will be harder this spring as we only have 1 volunteer teacher per class instead of 2. I’m going to miss my co-teacher but I understand why she is not returning. She is in her 70s and got Covid in our class back in Feb 2020 and since has had many related heart health issues. ALSO the class time overlaps with my TTH workouts so I'm working with my teacher to have access to videos to keep up!
    Day 85: Fri, 1/14: 207.7 Hmmmm Walked 1.4 miles, Strength Training class 1 hr, 1718 cal (-200), 39 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Too busy to snack which is a good thing! Scheduled my day out :) Planning my daughter’s baby shower with her SILs & friends. Lot of activity! Made 2 casseroles for my son & DIL that just had our granddaughter. Didn’t get to cut DH’s hair … guess that will happen today after I visit my granddaughter.
    Day 86: Sat, 1/15: 207.4 Walked 2 miles with my granddaughter in a stroller … that is a first! Strength Training class 1 hr … which I’m finding really helps when holding a newborn and getting up off the couch without using my hands to push off … got the leg strength & the balance! Mobile and active grandma in action LOL Took my son & DIL a few frozen casseroles and brought my DIL Zoe’s for lunch. The pita bread and basil pesto hummus at lunch sent me over my calorie and carb limits for the day! After all that DH & I went out to eat dinner since he has been in a sales conference all week over video. WIN no snacks! 1528 cal (-91), 79 net carbs, AF.
    13th Week Goal Weight: <205 Repeat until I hit it!
    13th Week Actual Weight: 207.4
    13th Week Weight Loss: 2.3
    Better snacking this week and more focus on what I’m actually putting in my mouth … journalling everything. Shed the high spikes over 209 that I never want to see again! I’ve gotten rid of the holiday excess weight and need to now get rid of my October roadtrip excess weight.

    Status: Walked 31.1 miles in January

    Day 87: Sun, 1/16: 206.6 No exercise took the day off and shopped with my DD. 1595 cal (-281), 21 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Thought I would take down the Christmas tree but nope it is still up! Enjoyed my day though cheese and wine for dinner is not sustainable in the long run.
    Day 88: Mon, 1/17: 207.2 Walked 2.9 miles, 1540 cal (100 green!), 38 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Finished putting up all the Holiday dishes and Christmas tree. Laundry and cleaned out clothes to donate. Ready for the week.
    Day 89: Tues, 1/18: 207.1 Walked 2.8 miles, Strength Training last half of class 30 min, 1793 cal (-79), 113 net carbs, AF. Really good choices for all meals today then my kids drop off another king cake … so I tried it out. Meche’s which it tastes more like a donut. I think Randazzo’s is still one of my favorites. Moeller’s in Houston has a pretty good one if I don’t want to ship one in from Louisiana. BUT I really don’t need any more king cake. Telling myself that the Meche’s king cake is just not worth it.
    Day 90: Wed, 1/19: 208.4 Walked 1.4 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1638 cal (95 green!), 113 net carbs, 2 bourbon & diet cokes. Not surprised by # on the scale. Very good planned and executed meals for lunch & dinner. But so much for good intentions! King cake for breakfast then dessert after lunch and dinner. There is no more in the house. YEAH!
    Day 91: Thurs, 1/20: 209.5 Walked 3.1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. My indulgences this week are definitely catching up with me! Starting with the king cake and ending with the chips & enchiladas at Mexican restaurant last night at book club.
    Day 92: Fri, 1/21: 209.0 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Really chilly here and didn’t do much of anything outside of visiting my granddaughter and helping my DIL so that she had a little time for herself. 2hr round trip + the 3 hr visit really kills the day!
    Day 93: Sat, 1/22: 209.4 Walked 3 miles, Stretching Workshop with physical therapist 30 min, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Cold again which called for a large batch of chili! Problem … there was a new bag of Fritos that I opened. :(

    14th Week Actual Weight: 209.4
    13th Week Weight Loss: 2.0
    Great progress that was done in by king cake and then the non-decision to just eat whatever I wanted (bad portions, bad selections at restaurants, etc)


    Day 94: Sun, 1/23: 209.9 No exercise. Babysat my new granddaughter < 3weeks old while her parents when shopping for a car since theirs was totaled in Dec. Skipped lunch but very rich dinner at my sister’s crawfish chowder and lots of bread. 2 glasses wine.
    Day 95: Mon, 1/24: 210.1 Walked 2.5 miles, no journaling, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 96: Tues, 1/25: 210.8 No exercise. Skipped my class to babysit granddaughter while her parents went to bank and picked up new car. The 2 hr round trip also eats into my day. Dinner out at book club, AF.
    Revising my workout schedule to fit in my volunteering! Doing one does not mean that I have to give up the other ... I can and will do both.
    Day 97: Wed, 1/26: 210.4 Walked 2.7 2 glasses wine.
    Day 98: Thurs, 1/27: DNW Walked 1.4 miles, Strength Training class in the evening, did not journal, AF.
    I gave up and gave in Jan 22-27 … I did not journal and I DID NOT POST on the treads. In fact I did not even read them. Then on Thursday I didn’t step on the scale and threw up my hands and ate everything in site. BUT I’m going back and catching up my notes and TODAY I plan to work my way back down under 210. I cannot ignore the scale and let this slide any more.

    Day 99: Fri, 1/28: 211.4 Walked 2.8 + 1.3 miles, Snickers at grocery store, fast food hamburger & fries for lunch, lasagna and pizza and bread and 3 glasses of wine for dinner. That was yesterday. Today isa new day and tomorrow I will post my journal and continue checking in. This “DON’T CARE” attitude has got to come to an end! NOW!!

    Day 86…..01/15…..194.6…..(Trend weight 192.7) Finished the leftovers, the stocking and apparently everything else in the house! Another restart today. Hope it works this time!

    Day 87…..01/16…..193.8…..(Trend weight 192.8) I am happy to see some progress. Kitchen reno is done (for now) and now begins the livingroom painting. Also adding two small walls to keep an open concept but give me small areas for extra cabinets on the dining room side. This will likely take a few weeks but at least I have free access to the kitchen (and meal planning) again! I finally broke down and changed my ticker to the higher weight I’ve had since late Oct before my surgery and the holidays. I was not happy to do it but keeping it real and honest is important! It is odd to read posts on the different challenges about how many times folks get up to go pee at night. I usually read once for most people. I get up every 40 minutes at the most. I monitor this to share with my doctor. Last night I actually got up 14 times which is a little more than usual. During the day I also urinate just as often. I can never go a full hour. No, I don’t take a water pill. I think it is a combo of the diabetes and the medications for it, and the fact that I drink coffee all day until about 5:00 pm (since I go to bed so late it’s okay). My normal four hours of sleep are always so disrupted! My fitbit also tracks this for me. How I wish I could get that 4 hours uninterrupted! I do keep water at my bedside and sip everytime I get up but that is because of my breathing machine drying out my mouth so bad. That happens to be bad for the teeth so keeping my mouth moist is important too. A vicious cycle!

    Day 88…..01/17…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.0) No TMI and I just could get full yesterday. Hopefully the scale will fare better tomorrow if my body functions (TMI) cooperate. My breathing machine doesn’t wake me up. It’s that I have to pee so often, even during the day. It’s really bad when my sugar is really high. It is just my body trying to rid the sugar (toxic) similar to alcohol when I pee a lot if I drink. My body is trying to save me, now if I could just help a little bit more!

    Day 89…..01/18…..193.8…..(Trend weight 193.0) Good meals but too much grazing during the day. Extra hungry for some reason. Today there will be more work on the living room reno project. This project will last several weeks. No room. Furniture covered and in the center. No privacy again. However, the dining room turned out nice and the living room will be an even bigger impact! Glad to be getting some of this out of the way during the cold snowy and icy months. I will need some alone time to leave the house to walk when the weather gets better.


    Day 90…..01/19…..193.2…..(Trend weight 193.1) Well, this certainly proves that results, good or bad, are not always reflected the very next morning. I had a bad eating day yesterday for sure. Yet the scale is down. Very low steps, practically no water. Very bad sleep, disrupted. Busy, busy day. Yet the scale is down by slightly over ½ pound. This must be a result of the past couple of days where my meals were more planned and within my limits. I suspect the scale will creep back up because of yesterday’s fiasco. I’ll work on a good day today.

    Day 91…..01/20…..192.6…..(Trend weight 193.0)
    Day 92…..01/21…..193.0…..(Trend weight 193.0) I had a great day yesterday until that late night piece of pumpkin pie with Cool Whip. Otherwise, I am proud of my choices for my meals and for the quantities I managed to stick to, even with the pie! I started babysitting Mon-Thur (sometimes Friday) for my 4 yr old live-in grandson. He will likely keep me on my toes. I started last Monday but movement in house is still restricted. So far, he spends more time upstairs in his room.
    Day 93…..01/22…..193.6…..(Trend weight 193.1) Pasta last night, all within calories so I am a bit teed off about the uptick but when thinking about it, pasta often does this to me. It’s an easy frozen go-to when I have a busy day. I’m going to try for more steps today. I don’t have much room for movement in this house right now but I’ve got to do something!
    Day 94…..01/23…..196.0…..(Trend weight 193.1) WTH????? Okay, I know how to play this game and THIS doesn’t make ANY sense! I did have Chinese carry-out for dinner brought in by daughter so I expected a bump up even though I drank extra water and I only ate half leaving leftovers for today, but the rest of my day was very good. It has to be the lack of exercise. This project is not yet half finished . My poor grandson is trapped upstairs and I’m trapped down. I’ve got to use the steps today for some extra movement.
    Day 95…..01/24…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.5) Well, my calories were about the same as the day before and so was my (lack of) exercise level. Scratching head but understanding there are times when it just can’t be understood.
    Day 96…..01/25…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.6) Reno going strong. Hair appointment today so my son will keep an eye on the crew. Tomorrow I go quite far for the dentist and will shop while I have the opportunity. It will be a long day with no advancement in the projects but these teeth must be cleaned!
    Day 97…..01/26…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.6) No change this morning but the day was par for the course. 7000 step range. 15 flights of stairs. Totally restricted other than my stairs which are in the same room as the reno. I’m sure they think I am a crazy woman up & down those stairs but I just keep pretending that this old lady is setting an example for them. I traveled today to the dentist for my cleaning. I go every 4 months now that I’m older and have gum issues. Lots of shopping afterward and a nice dinner at Applebee’s that was way over calorie and carb. I hope tomorrow the scale will just overlook the whole thing and throw me a bone! Got home late evening so no work done on the house today. I left at 9:00 a.m. Yikes, folks. Look below this sentence! Only 3 days left! Pitiful!
    Day 98…..01/27…..196.8…..(Trend weight 194.0) After travel weight gain which is ridiculous! 2 ½ pounds overnight. I ate 3 normal meals with nothing exceptional. I did a lot of walking in Hobby Lobby, but otherwise, a lot of sitting including in the dentist chair. Back to babysitting today and restriction during the work on the house today. Back to using the stairs as a form of exercise. Still too cold outside and slippery and now with the babysitting……. Yesterday when I left for dentist office it was 10 below zero actual. Today it is already 20 degrees above zero. Lots of snow today but warmer. Tomorrow will be a high of about 15. I just got over the illness that took 3 weeks to heal. I’m staying warm!
    Day 99…..01/28…..196.4…..(Trend weight 194.2) I’m starting to get back the fat symptoms. Sweaty on lower belly. Knees hurting. Trouble sleeping. Acid reflux returning in a bad way. Cravings out of control. I hate feeling this unhealthy. I’m glad to see a drop on the scale. I am hoping there are bluer skies ahead.

    I think that this is my 8th round.
    I started MFP (this time around) at 191.
    I joined this thread at 158.5

    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 50: 136.6
    Day 75: 136.4


    13th Week Actual Weight: 136.8
    Excess Calories burned (in the Green): 4536 - enough to lose a pound and did



    14th Week Goal Weight: 134.0 - Start weight for this 100
    14th Week Actual Weight: 138.8 - up 2 pounds from last Saturday's weigh in somehow : - (
    Excess Calories burned (in the Green): 4036 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 94: Sun, 1/23: 137.6 - Last week!
    Day 95: Mon, 1/24: 139.0 - Weekend catching up, but also weighing at my usual early time.
    Day 96: Tues, 1/25: 137.8 - A bit better
    Day 97: Wed, 1/26: 136.6 - Okay, back to day 50 weight somehow. Good.
    Day 98: Thurs, 1/27: 137.6 - That was short lived. Better than 139 I suppose.
    Day 99: Fri, 1/28: 137.0 - Going to be eating indulgent food tonight, pizza etc. This won't bode well for our final check in for the 100 tomorrow, but really this 100 has not been stellar for me and a few of us. Skating this morning before work, that will get my head right.
    Day 100: Sat, 1/29:

    15th Week Goal Weight: 134.0 - Start weight for this 100

    15th Week Actual Weight: 138.2

    Didn't do as well as I'd hoped but given that I totally dropped the ball over December and haven't been putting much effort in in January, I think I did pretty well to lose 9lbs. I really want this year to be a year when I feel comfortable in my own skin and not feel I have to hide my body in baggy clothes so I need to start taking things more seriously. I know shedding 10 more lbs will make all the difference to my confidence and comfort. The next 100 takes us to the start of May, warm weather and longer days await! Well done everybody

    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) NOTE: Low 201.1 in August 2021
    2022 SW: 209 BMI 37.0 (1/1/2022)
    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 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.

    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.

    2nd Week Goal Weight: <205

    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.

    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!

    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

    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 miles, 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!
    Day 21: Thurs: 11/11: 205.5 Walked 1.6 + 3.1 + 1 miles, 1524 cal, 114 net carbs, AF. Donated blood (targeting 4x per year). Started journaling my food for the day in the morning again and then updating it throughout the day. Definitely makes me think before putting something else in my tummy and I’m more accountable.
    Day 22: Fri: 11/12: 207.0 Walked 1.8 + 1.4 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2267 cal, 151 net carbs, Torchy’s Tini. DH went to happy hour with clients. My sister stopped by to drop something off so we ended up going out as well. After I returned home I walked the dog once more before DH returned.

    Weight is rising before the holidays even get here! I need a mental adjustment because I’ve gotten into the “I don’t give a flying fig” attitude. But in reality I do! I’m going to be on point Sat-Wed this week to prove to myself that this can be done so that the scale doesn’t tip over into the tens (210) on Thanksgiving.

    Day 31: Sun, 11/21: 208.5 Walked .6 + 3 miles, 1860 cal, 58 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Meals were pretty good but I got into the snacks in the afternoon. Steak night and my sister joined us which leads to more wine.
    Day 32: Mon, 11/22: 207.0 Walked 3.6 miles, 2042 cal, 69 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Made this yummy Olive Garden like soup recipe Zuppa Toscana Soup but with cauliflower instead of potatoes. I use frozen cauliflower flowerets and spinach (draining them before adding to the pot). https://www.shugarysweets.com/low-carb-keto-zuppa-toscana-soup-recipe/
    Day 33: Tues, 11/23: 207.5 Walked 3.6 + 1.4 miles, 1728 cal, 69 net carbs, AF. 2nd Shingrix vaccine (Shingles) and Tdap vaccine (Whopping Cough). Whooping Cough vaccine is recommended at least 2 weeks before being around a newborn and of course this new grandma is going to heed the advice! So 2021 we got 7 vaccines: 3x COVID, 2x Shingles, Flu, Tdap … I call this fully vaccinated 😂
    Day 34: Wed, 11/24: 208.5 @ 3am Strength Training 1 hr, no walk (DH walked the dogs while I was at class), 1894 cal, 212 net carbs, AF. Easily made it through class but then the vaccines from yesterday really kicked in and knocked both DH & I off our feet. Tired! Headache! Chipotle for lunch and Grimaldi’s Pizza for dinner. Not the best choices but I’m not up to fighting the battle. What is it they say? Feed a fever 🤒
    Should You Feed a Cold and Starve a Fever? - The answer is no. In actuality, you should feed both a cold and a fever — and starve neither.
    Day 35: Thurs, 11/25: 206.6 Walked 1 + 3 miles, 2217 cal, 96 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Still very tired yesterday… up at 3am when fever broke. Enjoyed lunch and decorating a tree for TX Children’s Hospital with DD and put out my outside Christmas lights. Woke up feeling better this morning! Tracking all my food the good the bad is working as usual. The trend is going down. I’m hosting lots of family today … I’ll try to be good :)
    Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃
    Day 36: Fri, 11/26: 208.6 Walk cut short due to it raining on us! Walked 1.3 miles, 2783 cal, 244 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Lovely day shared with lots of family but as always way too much food!
    Day 37: Sat, 11/27: 208.4 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles with the dogs after a long drive. No fishing Friday … too much wind. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.

    I can do better!

    Day 38: Sun, 11/28: 209.5 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles, fishing, not tracking food. Chips, pie, and drinks are damaging any success I’m making with good choices at meal time. Burned my hand which was not a good excuse to drink bourbon but I soothed it with Aloe on the hand and a few drinks instead of pain meds. TODAY is a good day to start fresh.
    Day 39: Mon, 11/29: 209.3 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 2.5 + .5 miles, fishing, 1404 cal, 123 net carbs, AF.

    Day 42: Thurs, 12/2: 209.7 Walked 1.5 miles, long drive in the car, 1791 cal, 145 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 43: Fri, 12/3: 209.8 Walked 3 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2171 cal, 205 net carbs, AF.

    Day 46: Mon, 12/6: 208.3 Walked 3.5 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Pasta for both lunch & dinner when I told myself I would not have any for the day.

    Day 47: Tues, 12/7: 208.6 Walked 1.3 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Planned meals and did well but lacked green veggies in the house.
    Day 48: Wed, 12/8: 207.8 Walked 1.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, shopping, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Dinner out Italian again but I ordered grilled crab cakes. Went to a play (TUTS Little Mermaid) with my sister, DD and DIL which was a nice change of pace but it was a late night.
    Day 49: Thurs, 12/9: 207.5 Walked 2.8 + 1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Healthier eating and this time I included veggies! But I’m craving and snacking on Simply Jif by the spoonful.
    Day 50: Fri, 12/10: 206.6 Walked .7 + 1.5 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Doing great with meals but my snacking is still off … Snickers and then opened a bag of Fritos after coming home from grocery store.
    Pregnant DIL was in a car accident. The driver fell asleep behind the wheel at 3pm!! Didn’t even tap the brakes and ran into the back of her. He and his daughter were taken away in ambulance … he was not conscience. DIL and the baby are okay. She was wearing a Pregnancy Bump Strap so no trauma across the tummy from the seat belt! Met her doctor at the hospital for observation and to throughly check her & baby out.

    Day 51: Sat: 12/11: 206.4 Walked 3.1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Went to doctor to see if I can do anything about a lingering 3 week cough before granddaughter is born.

    Not journaling my food but being more conscience about what I eat and planning better. Need to get back to journaling and need to up my water!

    Day 52: Sun, 12/12: 207.2 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Red Beans & Rice with cornbread for dinner was yummy & warm but not great carb wise! I made an extra large batch! Taking some to DD & hubby who are packing to move into their new home and DIL & my son who are expecting our granddaughter soon. Some will be going into the freezer and some left for DH on the nights I’m out this week.
    Day 53: Mon, 12/13: 207.0 Walked 3.4 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Healthy meals planned after grocery shopping and restocking the kitchen! Attended a cookie party today where a friend makes a dozen different cookies (small bites) and invites 75 of her friends to drop by and rate them all. Yummy annual holiday fun activity! After the sugar high I had a lot of energy but really didn’t accomplish much.
    Day 54: Tues, 12/14: 206.4 Walked 3.2 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Made Party Trash mixture to take to various parties this week. Also made chicken sausage gumbo.

    Day 55: Wed, 12/15: 208.4 No walking, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. I ate gumbo for lunch and the party trash as a snack. Making those on Monday and not eating them was an accomplishment for Mon but not Tues. Made holiday cookies Tues which I ate 7! Then I went to a party with tons of food and sampled everything. I am NOT surprised by the number on the scale this morning.
    Day 56: Thurs, 12/16: 208.6 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Book club party and yet again lots of yummy food! I chair the local Zeta alumnae book club. We had 60 nominations for books this year. 21 of the ladies voted electronically and we now have our reading list for 2022!

    Day 58: Sat, 12/18: 208.6 Walked 3.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Feeling more normal again! Invited my sister over for dinner to talk through my mom’s comments this week … mom (85 who lost her husband last year) started dreaming about a life and getting married to an old friend in January but he was not interested. She had built it up in her head that she would move back to our home town, into society, travel to his many homes, etc. Trying to help her through the disappointment and not be embarrassed. I believe she is lonely and the situation is remote where she is living but she is unwilling nor can she afford to move closer to my sister and I (nor does she want to). She’ll be here for 2 weeks and my sister and I needed to get on the same page before seeing mom again.

    This is what happens when you go to 4 parties in one week and do not resist the temptations and then eat party trash and holiday cookies all week long at home as well.

    Day 59: Sun, 12/19: 208.5 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Really lazy rainy day! Puzzles, wrapped gifts and reading “Sherlock Holmes & The Christmas Demon”.
    Day 60: Mon, 12/20: 207.7 No exercise, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Party yesterday afternoon where they served a beautiful steak salad at Taste of Texas in Houston. Very easy to work with on my portions and calories for the day. Though the evening I did have red beans and rice with sausage. Again kept my portion small but wondering if it will come back to bite me. A little shopping with DD since she is overwhelmed with the work, moving into a new house on Saturday and pregnancy. She needed gifts for her in-laws and didn't want to weight until Friday when she was off work. Took her a fun bag of new mom moving kit I made with a Gaiam Relax Back & Neck therapy wrap, bath bombs, shower steamers, Burt’s Bees Mama Belly Butter Skin Care, and a bag of homemade party trash she has been craving.
    Day 61: Tues, 12/21: 207.7 Walk 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Shopped for flowers and made several flower arrangements that cheer up the indoors (kitchen, den, dining, guest bedrooms, powder room)! DD’s brother in law that is living with her husband’s parents tested positive for covid so his family is in quarantine. Her friend that was to stay over some this week also tested positive. SOOOoooo trying to keep safe and looks like DD will spend Christmas Day with us.
    Day 62: Wed, 12/22: 206.7 Walk 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Son and his wife came in town for the holidays and are bouncing back and forth from our house to his siblings. It has been fun having all the kids around. LOTS of cooking!
    Day 63: Thurs, 12/23: DNW Totally forgot to step on the scale or if I did I forgot the #! ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Also did not exercise … not even a walk! Took the girls (DD and 2x DIL) for pedicures :) Guess I really should do something that includes my boys one of these days! After a day of everyone running in and out it was nice for my son & his wife to go to my daughter’s home and hang out with just the younger adults. DH & I had a quiet evening.
    Day 64: Fri, 12/24: 207.3 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, lots of cookies, dinner out 3 glasses Prosecco. Final doctor’s appt of the year (well woman) and she said I did not need to come back annually anymore. Guess I made it to the age of … return when you notice something different LOL. I’ll keep up the annual mammograms since both my sister and mom had breast cancer. Fun time with the girls (DD & DIL other DIL her mom is now in town for the holiday so she did not join us) … took them to a candle making shop where there were over 100 scents for us to experiment and create our own candles!
    Day 65: Sat, 12/25: 209.2 No exercise. Lots of prep and cooking for our annual Christmas Eve party. 3 glass wine.

    Too much everything! Loved being around my adult kids though.

    Day 66: Sun, 12/26: 209.0 Walked 3 miles (6 people & 3 dogs) + 1 miles, 1 glass wine. Lunch at my sisters and leftover seafood gumbo later in the evening. No pies or cakes this year but lots of cookies. I need to get back to journalling every bite … on Monday after the family leaves.
    Day 67: Mon, 12/27: 208.2 Walked 3.9 miles, 1 Torchy’s Tini @ lunch and 2 glasses wine for dinner. Got the house back to ourselves after lunch … so tons clothes and bedding to wash. TODAY not Jan 1 is the beginning of my focus on weight loss again. No more of the holiday excess.
    Day 68: Tues, 12/28: 207.7 Walked 2.4 miles, over 15k steps shopping! Started journalling for the day with breakfast but then nose dived at lunch with my pregnant daughter and her cravings for queso w/ chips & fried pickles … splitting a hamburger. Dinner was good but snacks were poorly chosen when I returned home. 2 glasses wine.
    Day 69: Wed, 12/29: 207.5 Walked 2.9 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Pretty good day but still not journalling my food which means that I eat more snacks and junk than I would if I was tracking.
    Day 70: Thurs, 12/30: 207.8 No exercise, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Helped my daughter create a BabyList.com baby registry and unpack more boxes in her house since she is off work this week.
    Day 71: Fri, 12/31: 209.0 Walked 2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, AF. Too many salty snacks yesterday. BUT I did clean out the fridge, start menu plans again for the new year and signed up for Strength Training 4x per week instead of just 2x. Why does the flip of the year always spur me on. Well I guess because I didn’t achieve and maintain my goal for 2021. My goal was to get under 200. I was this close at 201.1 in August but then let things get out of hand and of course the scale jumps right back up when you do something stupid … like forget this is a lifestyle and not a diet. So starting a fresh page in my journal and creating the lifestyle that will help me get down to my goal set my both of my doctors.
    Day 72: Sat, 1/1: 209.0 Walked 3.8 + 1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not sure what happen or why but my heart started racing on my evening walk as we neared home. Heartbeat jumped up to 196. Marked the activity on my Apple Watch and iPhone to share with my doctor. Otherwise, quiet evening and early to bed … ready to start the new year!
    HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🎉 Well 2021 was a wash in that I lost 11 lbs but gained 8 back for a total loss of 3 lbs. Lost all my progress starting in October on a 16 day roadtrip and then just kept sliding. BUT I did meet Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last . Now to make the goal I’ve set for the past 2 years … <200 (Dr set target to reach & stay under 200).

    I’m amazed that I held steady and did not gain this week. Now to make real progress in the new year! HELLO 2022!

    Day 73: Sun, 1/2: 208.0 Walked 3.1 miles, 1674 cal (-40), 82 net carbs, AF. Planned my meals and did well though I went over my original target because of Cheetos with lunch and the appetizers set out for our family dinner. I did avoid the wine so didn’t have to worry about those calories.
    My son and his wife are at the hospital … my granddaughter is on her way!!!
    Day 74: Mon, 1/3: 206.8 Walked 1.3 miles ~ 5pm even though it was windy & chilly for Houston. 1554 cal (-77), 30 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Yeah I’m tracking my food again … which makes a huge difference on the snacking. Once when I started to go into the pantry I decided to make black coffee instead :) Kept busy taking down some of the Christmas decor & walking up & down stairs many times. Long slow delivery. Still waiting on my baby granddaughter … as of 4am this morning.
    Day 75: Tues, 1/4: 207.5 Walked 3 + .9 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2214 cal (-441), 49 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My little granddaughter is adorable! 7 lbs 9 oz, 19 inch. Her mom & dad are doing well. They get out of the hospital today and we get to go meet her! I need to get on the ball if I'm going to be a slimmer, active, flexible, stronger, mobile grandma!
    Day 76: Wed, 1/5: 208.3 Walked 1.1 + .6 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2005 cal (-306),138 net carbs, AF. Totally expected to be up on the scale! I journaled every bite so it is not a surprise. Meal plans were great up until dinner of Popeyes fried chicken … when we visited our new granddaughter. They were getting out of the hospital, called wanted us to drive up, they live an hour away on the other side of Houston. Emotional rollercoaster of a day. The snacking on Snickers, peanut butter, ice cream and Cheetos should not have even been options in my house but they were. Starting today with water before coffee and better intentions.
    Day 77: Thurs, 1/6: 209.3 Walk 1.4 + 3 miles, 2232 cal (-312), 12 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Grazed again but less carbs. Wrong direction! Still need to work on limiting my calories.
    Day 78: Fri, 1/7: 208.9 2021 cal (-507), 119 net carbs. Strength Training 1 hr. No walk Wednesday. Drove (round trip 2 hrs) to son’s home to deliver something they needed and of course stayed to visit with my new granddaughter. Meals were okay but snacking is still bad … especially since I snuck in a snickers when grocery shopping which is a bad habit I need to break!
    Day 79: Sat, 1/8: 209.7 Walked 1.2 + 1.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1837 cal (-115), 137 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Really no explanation for the jump on the scale unless it is that I weighed in a couple of hours earlier … didn’t sleep. Snacking was reasonable. Wow yesterday just seemed to slip away from me … a little reading, too much computer time, dropped off old clothing to Women’s abuse shelter, groceries yet again and cooked double batch of jambalaya for family Sunday lunch.

    Wrong way to start the year. Need to turn things around.

    Day 80: Sun, 1/9: 211.6 No exercise. Drove (6 hr round trip) to New Braunfels for a day trip with DH which was fun attending the IPMS ModelFiesta show, shopping, lunch at GristMill in Gruene historic district on the Guadalupe River. Returning home stopped at my sisters for dinner which had tons of carbs (black beans & sausage w/ rice & cornbread). 2195 cal (-889), 215 net carbs, 1 beer at lunch + 1 wine at dinner.
    Day 81: Mon, 1/10: 210.9 Walked 2.5 miles, 1954 cal (-302), 202 net carbs, AF. All my kids got together to meet our new granddaughter today! Fun times. Jambalaya, salad, strawberries, pineapple and King Cake for lunch then just DH & I shared cheese & olives for dinner.
    Day 82: Tues, 1/11: 208.6 Walked .9 + .3 miles, Strength Training class 1 hr, 1874 cal (-251), 25 net carbs, 96oz water, AF. Grocery shopped AND followed my menu plan for the most part … switched out Wed & Mon menus but still I’m on point regarding the planning and executing. Now to get myself back into the green and not have negative red highlighted number under remaining calories! AND to get the scale going down consistently instead of these awful swings.
    Day 83: Wed, 1/12: 207.4 Walked 1.4 + 3 miles, Strength Training class 1 hr, 1714 cal (231 green!), 92 net carbs, 96+oz water again, AF. Nice chilly day exercising and relaxing reading The Maid by Nita Prose (highly recommend it). Evening alumnae meeting was a casual PJ and pizza party night after the chaos of the holidays. Proud to say I went comfy in my poodle pajama bottoms that now fit again!
    Day 84: Thurs, 1/13: 207.6 Walked 2.9 miles, 1450 cal (203 green!), 44 net carbs, AF. Gumbo without rice :( but I stuck to my plan. Training class for volunteers teaching English to adults through our church. The program is kicking off again after stopping in March 2020. It will be harder this spring as we only have 1 volunteer teacher per class instead of 2. I’m going to miss my co-teacher but I understand why she is not returning. She is in her 70s and got Covid in our class back in Feb 2020 and since has had many related heart health issues. ALSO the class time overlaps with my TTH workouts so I'm working with my teacher to have access to videos to keep up!
    Day 85: Fri, 1/14: 207.7 Hmmmm Walked 1.4 miles, Strength Training class 1 hr, 1718 cal (-200), 39 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Too busy to snack which is a good thing! Scheduled my day out :) Planning my daughter’s baby shower with her SILs & friends. Lot of activity! Made 2 casseroles for my son & DIL that just had our granddaughter. Didn’t get to cut DH’s hair … guess that will happen today after I visit my granddaughter.
    Day 86: Sat, 1/15: 207.4 Walked 2 miles with my granddaughter in a stroller … that is a first! Strength Training class 1 hr … which I’m finding really helps when holding a newborn and getting up off the couch without using my hands to push off … got the leg strength & the balance! Mobile and active grandma in action LOL Took my son & DIL a few frozen casseroles and brought my DIL Zoe’s for lunch. The pita bread and basil pesto hummus at lunch sent me over my calorie and carb limits for the day! After all that DH & I went out to eat dinner since he has been in a sales conference all week over video. WIN no snacks! 1528 cal (-91), 79 net carbs, AF.
    13th Week Goal Weight: <205 Repeat until I hit it!
    13th Week Actual Weight: 207.4
    13th Week Weight Loss: 2.3
    Better snacking this week and more focus on what I’m actually putting in my mouth … journalling everything. Shed the high spikes over 209 that I never want to see again! I’ve gotten rid of the holiday excess weight and need to now get rid of my October roadtrip excess weight.

    Status: Walked 31.1 miles in January

    Day 87: Sun, 1/16: 206.6 No exercise took the day off and shopped with my DD. 1595 cal (-281), 21 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Thought I would take down the Christmas tree but nope it is still up! Enjoyed my day though cheese and wine for dinner is not sustainable in the long run.
    Day 88: Mon, 1/17: 207.2 Walked 2.9 miles, 1540 cal (100 green!), 38 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Finished putting up all the Holiday dishes and Christmas tree. Laundry and cleaned out clothes to donate. Ready for the week.
    Day 89: Tues, 1/18: 207.1 Walked 2.8 miles, Strength Training last half of class 30 min, 1793 cal (-79), 113 net carbs, AF. Really good choices for all meals today then my kids drop off another king cake … so I tried it out. Meche’s which it tastes more like a donut. I think Randazzo’s is still one of my favorites. Moeller’s in Houston has a pretty good one if I don’t want to ship one in from Louisiana. BUT I really don’t need any more king cake. Telling myself that the Meche’s king cake is just not worth it.
    Day 90: Wed, 1/19: 208.4 Walked 1.4 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1638 cal (95 green!), 113 net carbs, 2 bourbon & diet cokes. Not surprised by # on the scale. Very good planned and executed meals for lunch & dinner. But so much for good intentions! King cake for breakfast then dessert after lunch and dinner. There is no more in the house. YEAH!
    Day 91: Thurs, 1/20: 209.5 Walked 3.1 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. My indulgences this week are definitely catching up with me! Starting with the king cake and ending with the chips & enchiladas at Mexican restaurant last night at book club.
    Day 92: Fri, 1/21: 209.0 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Really chilly here and didn’t do much of anything outside of visiting my granddaughter and helping my DIL so that she had a little time for herself. 2hr round trip + the 3 hr visit really kills the day!
    Day 93: Sat, 1/22: 209.4 Walked 3 miles, Stretching Workshop with physical therapist 30 min, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Cold again which called for a large batch of chili! Problem … there was a new bag of Fritos that I opened. :(

    Great progress that was done in by king cake and then the non-decision to just eat whatever I wanted (bad portions, bad selections at restaurants, etc)


    Day 94: Sun, 1/23: 209.9 No exercise. Babysat my new granddaughter < 3weeks old while her parents when shopping for a car since theirs was totaled in Dec. Skipped lunch but very rich dinner at my sister’s crawfish chowder and lots of bread. 2 glasses wine.
    Day 95: Mon, 1/24: 210.1 Walked 2.5 miles, no journaling, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 96: Tues, 1/25: 210.8 No exercise. Skipped my class to babysit granddaughter while her parents went to bank and picked up new car. The 2 hr round trip also eats into my day. Dinner out at book club, AF.
    Revising my workout schedule to fit in my volunteering! Doing one does not mean that I have to give up the other ... I can and will do both.
    Day 97: Wed, 1/26: 210.4 Walked 2.7 2 glasses wine.
    Day 98: Thurs, 1/27: DNW Walked 1.4 miles, Strength Training class in the evening, did not journal, AF.
    I gave up and gave in Jan 23-27 … I did not journal and I DID NOT POST on the treads. In fact I did not even read them. Then on Thursday I didn’t step on the scale and threw up my hands and ate everything in site. BUT I’m going back and catching up my notes and TODAY I plan to work my way back down under 210. I cannot ignore the scale and let this slide any more.

    Day 99: Fri, 1/28: 211.4 Walked 2.8 + 1.3 miles, Snickers at grocery store, fast food hamburger & fries for lunch, lasagna and pizza and bread and 3 glasses of wine for dinner. That was yesterday. Today isa new day and tomorrow I will post my journal and continue checking in. This “DON’T CARE” attitude has got to come to an end! NOW!!
    Day 100: Sat, 1/29: 212.0 Walked 1 + 1.5 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1762 cal (-12 red), 112 net carbs, AF. More on track today that this past week but still have a few bad habits I need to drop (forever!). Not sure what my mind is telling me when I grab Snickers at the grocery checkout and then eat it while driving through to grab burger and fries for lunch. Both of these old habits need to be squashed!
    15th Week Goal Weight: Back to where I started this 100 days??
    15th Week Actual Weight: 212.0
    15th Week Weight Loss: 2.6
    Oh boy I’ve really been out of control these past few weeks! Now I’m back where I was at the beginning of 212. Not good! This has been my worst 100 days of progress since I started the journey in 2019. Time to buckle back down.

    Challenge Starting Weight: 207
    Challenge Goal: <195
    Challenge Ending Weight: 212

    Very glad to put this 100 days behind me and start fresh! Looking forward to tackling the next 100 days... I'm not giving up and giving in.

    Day 85…..01/14…..194.0…..(Trend weight 192.5)

    Day 86…..01/15…..194.6…..(Trend weight 192.7) Finished the leftovers, the stocking and apparently everything else in the house! Another restart today. Hope it works this time!

    Day 87…..01/16…..193.8…..(Trend weight 192.8) I am happy to see some progress. Kitchen reno is done (for now) and now begins the livingroom painting. Also adding two small walls to keep an open concept but give me small areas for extra cabinets on the dining room side. This will likely take a few weeks but at least I have free access to the kitchen (and meal planning) again! I finally broke down and changed my ticker to the higher weight I’ve had since late Oct before my surgery and the holidays. I was not happy to do it but keeping it real and honest is important! It is odd to read posts on the different challenges about how many times folks get up to go pee at night. I usually read once for most people. I get up every 40 minutes at the most. I monitor this to share with my doctor. Last night I actually got up 14 times which is a little more than usual. During the day I also urinate just as often. I can never go a full hour. No, I don’t take a water pill. I think it is a combo of the diabetes and the medications for it, and the fact that I drink coffee all day until about 5:00 pm (since I go to bed so late it’s okay). My normal four hours of sleep are always so disrupted! My fitbit also tracks this for me. How I wish I could get that 4 hours uninterrupted! I do keep water at my bedside and sip everytime I get up but that is because of my breathing machine drying out my mouth so bad. That happens to be bad for the teeth so keeping my mouth moist is important too. A vicious cycle!

    Day 88…..01/17…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.0) No TMI and I just could get full yesterday. Hopefully the scale will fare better tomorrow if my body functions (TMI) cooperate. My breathing machine doesn’t wake me up. It’s that I have to pee so often, even during the day. It’s really bad when my sugar is really high. It is just my body trying to rid the sugar (toxic) similar to alcohol when I pee a lot if I drink. My body is trying to save me, now if I could just help a little bit more!

    Day 89…..01/18…..193.8…..(Trend weight 193.0) Good meals but too much grazing during the day. Extra hungry for some reason. Today there will be more work on the living room reno project. This project will last several weeks. No room. Furniture covered and in the center. No privacy again. However, the dining room turned out nice and the living room will be an even bigger impact! Glad to be getting some of this out of the way during the cold snowy and icy months. I will need some alone time to leave the house to walk when the weather gets better.


    Day 90…..01/19…..193.2…..(Trend weight 193.1) Well, this certainly proves that results, good or bad, are not always reflected the very next morning. I had a bad eating day yesterday for sure. Yet the scale is down. Very low steps, practically no water. Very bad sleep, disrupted. Busy, busy day. Yet the scale is down by slightly over ½ pound. This must be a result of the past couple of days where my meals were more planned and within my limits. I suspect the scale will creep back up because of yesterday’s fiasco. I’ll work on a good day today.

    Day 91…..01/20…..192.6…..(Trend weight 193.0)
    Day 92…..01/21…..193.0…..(Trend weight 193.0) I had a great day yesterday until that late night piece of pumpkin pie with Cool Whip. Otherwise, I am proud of my choices for my meals and for the quantities I managed to stick to, even with the pie! I started babysitting Mon-Thur (sometimes Friday) for my 4 yr old live-in grandson. He will likely keep me on my toes. I started last Monday but movement in house is still restricted. So far, he spends more time upstairs in his room.
    Day 93…..01/22…..193.6…..(Trend weight 193.1) Pasta last night, all within calories so I am a bit teed off about the uptick but when thinking about it, pasta often does this to me. It’s an easy frozen go-to when I have a busy day. I’m going to try for more steps today. I don’t have much room for movement in this house right now but I’ve got to do something!
    Day 94…..01/23…..196.0…..(Trend weight 193.1) WTH????? Okay, I know how to play this game and THIS doesn’t make ANY sense! I did have Chinese carry-out for dinner brought in by daughter so I expected a bump up even though I drank extra water and I only ate half leaving leftovers for today, but the rest of my day was very good. It has to be the lack of exercise. This project is not yet half finished . My poor grandson is trapped upstairs and I’m trapped down. I’ve got to use the steps today for some extra movement.
    Day 95…..01/24…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.5) Well, my calories were about the same as the day before and so was my (lack of) exercise level. Scratching head but understanding there are times when it just can’t be understood.
    Day 96…..01/25…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.6) Reno going strong. Hair appointment today so my son will keep an eye on the crew. Tomorrow I go quite far for the dentist and will shop while I have the opportunity. It will be a long day with no advancement in the projects but these teeth must be cleaned!
    Day 97…..01/26…..194.4…..(Trend weight 193.6) No change this morning but the day was par for the course. 7000 step range. 15 flights of stairs. Totally restricted other than my stairs which are in the same room as the reno. I’m sure they think I am a crazy woman up & down those stairs but I just keep pretending that this old lady is setting an example for them. I traveled today to the dentist for my cleaning. I go every 4 months now that I’m older and have gum issues. Lots of shopping afterward and a nice dinner at Applebee’s that was way over calorie and carb. I hope tomorrow the scale will just overlook the whole thing and throw me a bone! Got home late evening so no work done on the house today. I left at 9:00 a.m. Yikes, folks. Look below this sentence! Only 3 days left! Pitiful!
    Day 98…..01/27…..196.8…..(Trend weight 194.0) After travel weight gain which is ridiculous! 2 ½ pounds overnight. I ate 3 normal meals with nothing exceptional. I did a lot of walking in Hobby Lobby, but otherwise, a lot of sitting including in the dentist chair. Back to babysitting today and restriction during the work on the house today. Back to using the stairs as a form of exercise. Still too cold outside and slippery and now with the babysitting……. Yesterday when I left for dentist office it was 10 below zero actual. Today it is already 20 degrees above zero. Lots of snow today but warmer. Tomorrow will be a high of about 15. I just got over the illness that took 3 weeks to heal. I’m staying warm!
    Day 99…..01/28…..196.4…..(Trend weight 194.2) I’m starting to get back the fat symptoms. Sweaty on lower belly. Knees hurting. Trouble sleeping. Acid reflux returning in a bad way. Cravings out of control. I hate feeling this unhealthy. I’m glad to see a drop on the scale. I am hoping there are bluer skies ahead.
    Day 100…..01/29…..(Final Weight In)……195.2……(trend weight 194.3) Yikes, first time I’ve looked at the top of my posts in a while. Exactly a 10 pound gain this 100 day round. This is worse than “not so stellar”. This is HORRIBLE. We all know I can do better. We can all do what needs to be done to reach our goals (whatever they may be.) Let’s get it done in the next round! My goal next round, lose these 10 pounds back and start back fresh the following round! Great job to all of you who accomplished your goals! You are my greatest inspirations!


    Weight Loss in January ………3.6 lb GAIN……….. 195.2
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..10.0 lb GAIN (This will NOT HAPPEN AGAIN!)

    I enjoyed spending the last 100 days with everyone! I left three decades behind. I know this was a tough time of year and we're not all where we wanted to be, but as many of you have said, the next 100 can be whatever you need them to be! Looking forward to spending it together.

    I think that this is my 8th round.
    I started MFP (this time around) at 191.
    I joined this thread at 158.5

    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 50: 136.6
    Day 75: 136.4


    13th Week Actual Weight: 136.8
    Excess Calories burned (in the Green): 4536 - enough to lose a pound and did



    14th Week Goal Weight: 134.0 - Start weight for this 100
    14th Week Actual Weight: 138.8 - up 2 pounds from last Saturday's weigh in somehow : - (
    Excess Calories burned (in the Green): 4036 - enough to lose a pound

    Day 94: Sun, 1/23: 137.6 - Last week!
    Day 95: Mon, 1/24: 139.0 - Weekend catching up, but also weighing at my usual early time.
    Day 96: Tues, 1/25: 137.8 - A bit better
    Day 97: Wed, 1/26: 136.6 - Okay, back to day 50 weight somehow. Good.
    Day 98: Thurs, 1/27: 137.6 - That was short lived. Better than 139 I suppose.
    Day 99: Fri, 1/28: 137.0 - Going to be eating indulgent food tonight, pizza etc. This won't bode well for our final check in for the 100 tomorrow, but really this 100 has not been stellar for me and a few of us. Skating this morning before work, that will get my head right.
    Day 100: Sat, 1/29: 137.8

    15th Week Goal Weight: 134.0 - Start weight for this 100
    15th Week Actual Weight: 137.8
    Excess Calories burned (in the Green):

    Challenge Starting Weight: 134.0

    Challenge Goal: 124.0

    Challenge Ending Weight: 137.8

    Excess Calories burned (in the Green) this 100:

    Total Weight Loss GAIN for Challenge: 3.8 pounds

    Some of you did so totally great this 100. Congrats!!

    Some of us not, and we will have to pull up our boots straps and get after it.
