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



    Starting Weight (from Nov 30th): 189.2
    Goal: 184.2 (Five lb Loss)

    **************************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME************************************

    12/01…...188.7…..(Trend Weight 189.5)

    12/02.…..188.2…..(Trend Weight 189.4)

    12/03.…..189.8…..(Trend Weight 189.5}….. I don’t understand the huge increase overnight. It actually should have been lower. Trusting the process….

    12/04.…..188.8…..(Trend Weight 189.4)

    12/05.…..189.4…..(Trend Weight 189.4)….. Pizza last night for all the visiting family. Not surprised by this. My brother was cremated yesterday morning. We await his ashes.

    12/06.…..189.6…..(Trend Weight 189.4)….. Little Debbie’s that I no longer even find special. Frosting like Crisco after dieting and staying away from processed baked goods (for the most part). I guess I am just trying to find comfort where there is none yet. I’m donating the junk today to my handymen. It came from my brother’s house.

    12/07.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.5)….. I am a little surprised by this. I didn’t overeat yesterday and I was so active in going through and laundering my brother’s things literally all day and much of the night. I also started the decorating process. Maybe one of my 4 new meds. Maybe stress raising my sugar causing fat storage. Maybe just loaded down with continued grief. I’m going to log today to see if I am missing any parts of this picture. I’m fuzzy headed right now and that is always possible.

    12/08.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.6)….. I’m a hot mess. Now I’ve ran my glucose up and I am feeling like sheer crap on top of it all. I’m making changes today to get to a better place. More paperwork and business for my brother is due today. I don’t even feel like I can raise a pencil to paper! It’s the food choices.


    12/09.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..
    12/10.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..

    12/26.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    12/27.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    12/28.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    12/29.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    12/30.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    12/31.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……

    We are all here for you, Donna, in your time of grief and sadness. We love you. ❤️

    I wish I could send you a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup so you wouldn’t have to even think of food for a little while.
