    I'm ready to get back to healthy habits and a healthier weight starting tomorrow!

    My goals…

    🌟Lose .5 pounds each week… 26 pounds this year
    🌟Work out 3-5 days a week
    🌟Drink less alcohol
    🌟Log consistently
    🌟Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌟Move 30 minutes a day

    Highest weight:214.5
    Current weight:214.5
    January Goal Weight: 209


    January 3—214.5 - well - that's a number I never want to see again. Let's do this!
    January 4—213
    January 5— 213.4 - had sushi last night. Hit my exercise goal, plus 10,000 steps and only 1 glass of wine - so I think it's the sodium.
    January 6—212.7 workout done
    January 7— 213.4 - hmm - I see some tweaks I need to make
    January 8— 211.9 - weight loss is weird - yesterday I had too many chips, had pizza for dinner with wine and I lose this - so bizarre!
    January 9—213.4 - there's the pizza! Did better yesterday and got my workout done for today.
    January 10—213.4 - not bad for the first week - down 1.2. Now for some tweaks for this week.
    January 11—211.9

    Happy new year everyone! I’m Athena. I am loving these challenges, they are helping me stay motivated!

    My goal for this month is to start to focus on my physical activity, this is where I struggle the most. I plan to wake up and go to the gym on weekdays every morning for 45 minutes and occasionally do classes in the afternoon. I’ll also continue to push to only eat out on weekends/on holidays. I am going to try to lose 4 pounds each month.

    Highest weight: 165
    End of month goal: 155
    Current weight: 159

    January 1 - 159 (went out)
    January 2 - 159 (went out)
    January 3 - Whoops! (home cooked/ walked 45 minutes)
    January 4 - 157 (went out/ walked, jogged 45 minutes)
    January 5 - 156 (home cooked/ walked 45 min.)
    January 6 - 157 (home cooked/ walked, jogged 45 min.)
    January 7 - 157 (home cooked/ walked 45 min.)
    January 8 - 156 (went out)
    January 9 - 156 (went out)
    January 10 - 157 (home cooked, walked 45 min.).
    January 11 - 157 (home cooked, jogged 45 min, Yoga 1 hr)

    Last night was very difficult and threw me out of threshold again. Didn’t eat great, literally ate pizza rolls for dinner, but I portion controlled it and avoided fast food/ alcohol. This morning I ran the fastest I ever have on the treadmill and feel more in threshold again. I also plan to do yoga tonight. Definitely feeling challenged to keep up on the diet end today - yearning for the comfort of fast food, but I’m determined to keep my goals. Going to have sausage with peppers and onions for dinner tonight.

    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 December 31st): 191.6
    Goal: 186.6 (Five lb Loss)

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

    01/01…...190.0…..(Trend Weight 191.5)….. Happy New Year everyone. I’ve been slipping, sliding and teetering back and forth since October (just prior to needing cancer scare breast surgery). I’m ready to stop eating all my emotions and grief and get back on track to the business of heath and well-being. Recommitting today!

    01/02.…..189.8…..(Trend Weight 191.4)….. I am happy to see my weight trending down. It feels like faith in me. I’ve been doing better on my meals but little to no movement for two reasons. First, I am still sick and too weak and unsteady. Second, I am having a “temporary floor put down in about 1000 throughout most of my main floor to rid myself of horrible carpet that was in the kitchen and dining room! I don’t know what the old owners were thinking but the kitchen carpet was actually RED so this new vinyl with suffice until the rooms are fully remodeled and my click flooring can be installed. Everything throught the 900 sq ft area is now piled up in my livingroom. I have no stove or fridge, they are in living room too. Food in cold garage. Exercise is out of the question at this point so it’s a good time to be sick. I’m wearing mask while workers are here to keep my germs to myself.

    01/03.…..191.0…..(Trend Weight 191.3}….. No clue why except for restricted movement during a floor remodel project that’s not going so well. Keeping the faith.

    01/04.…..192.6…..(Trend Weight 191.4)….. Besides lack of movement while still trapped in my packed livingroom during floor reno in multiple rooms, I think it is the 2% milk bloating me up because my meals honestly have been pretty good. I’ll have to go back to drinking my Fairlife now that the holidays are over. It’s lactose free and not bad tasting once you get used to the unusual smell.

    01/05.…..193.2…..(Trend Weight 191.6)….. Obviously I need to start logging my food again. Without snacks it seems like I’m not doing badly on the dietary side. I know my movement is little due to the renovation, but this is crazy. Keeping the faith!

    01/06.…..194.0…..(Trend Weight 191.8)….. Sadly, I know this is not water weight. It’s lack of movement and calorie burn from the floor reno. It’s make-shift meals that I am trying to be reasonable on since there is no stove or fridge. It’s too easy to grab cereal for a meal with milk from the coolor and other such things that I normally stay away from. Sandwiches which add up to too much bread overall for the day etc. Flooring man left at 10:30 so another late dinner. I am hoping the work will be completed today so I’m not trapped in my livingroom for much longer! Making plans for a comeback my friends!

    01/07.…..192.6…..(Trend Weight 191.9)….. I got in a little more movement yesterday by beginning to pack up Christmas stuff in the livingroom where I’m confined until the floor are done. They will be done today for sure and I will be free to roam the house again and put my appliances back into place. Yay!

    01/08.…..191.2…..(Trend Weight 191.9)….. A little extra packing Christmas Away Work helped. Diet about the same. Not bad but could have been improved. Today the floor will get the final finish with mouldings going on etc. then the handyman will help take down two trees and carry up totes of household décor that goes back in. I will try to be even more mindful with my diet. Most failures occur in the snack department. STARVING today already so this will be a challenge!

    01/09.…..192.2…..(Trend Weight 191.9)….. Very nice well-planned meals yesterday. Binge on snacks last night. The uptick is my own fault. I’ll do better today.

    01/10.…..194.4…..(Trend Weight 192.1)….. A lot of unexpected company. No lunch. Pizza for dinner. Pushing water today.

    01/11.…..192.6…..(Trend Weight 192.2)….. Strange. I ate the exact same food as the day before. Same breakfast, same lack of lunch and the same amount of pizza (leftovers) and this time I lost instead of gained. No difference in TMI and no difference in exercise. Hmph. Come to think of it though, I did push a little more water. I probably drank about 24 oz extra. Not as much as I’d hoped, but there is that. I hope the leftovers don’t catch up to me and wreak havoc again! Dining room getting painted. He’s been working on it a couple of days. It’s looking good and may be completed by today. It’s another temporary project to update things until the full kitchen / diningroom reno.
