    100 Days of Accountability 1/30-5/9
    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: 212 (1/29)
    Challenge Goal: <200
    History & Goals
    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last

    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

    * 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 2022 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/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 1: Sun, 1/30: 211.4 Walked 3.9 miles, 1823 cal (-99 red), 100 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Highly recommend this recipe for a London Broil. I cooked it twice now ... in the oven and grilled and both turn out great. Love the marinade (2-12 hrs). I used Tamari (Japanese form of soy sauce) instead of the Coconut Aminos. Think I’m going to try the marinade out on chicken next.

    Day 2: Mon, 1/31: 210.1 Walked 3 miles, 1763 cal (-112 red), 65 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. The above marinade works wonders with chicken legs! Completed menu plan and grocery list for this week. Also prepped the Unit 1 for volunteer teaching ESL/LEM (Learn English Ministry).Day 3: Tues, 2/1: 210.2 Rain so no walk, Strength Training 1 hr, 1867 cal (-350 red), 51 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Successful grocery shopping trip this morning led to following through with my menu planning for lunch & dinner! BONUS: I did NOT pick up a Snickers at the checkout when grocery shopping.
    Day 4: Wed, 2/2: 211.8 Walked 1.5 miles, 2082 cal (-575 red), 164 net carbs, 2 glasses wine + bourbon & diet sprite. Skipped strength training class since I’m teaching English on Tues & Thurs mornings now. I need to find a new exercise schedule that works! Loved my new photography with the cell phone class! Great plan for both lunch & dinner. HOWEVER, the community center gave me a box of fried rice, egg roll and fortune cookie to celebrate lunar new year when I went to class. I took it home and added it to our dinner … which took me into the red for the day.
    Day 5: Thurs, 2/3: 212.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 2033 cal (-569 red), 71 net carbs, Torchy’s Tini. Crazy day driving up early after not sleeping well to babysit granddaughter while my DIL went to doctor, both lunch & dinner dined out, no real exercise … short walk but skipped my strength training class in the evening because I was exhausted. Terrible excuses and the number on the scale is a reflection of my poor choices.
    Day 6: Fri, 2/4: 210.1 Walked 1.3 miles, 1690 cal (-199 red), 63 net carbs, 1 bourbon & diet sprite. Watched the 2007 movie Waitress on Amazon. Then watched on YouTube the Sara Bareilles concert What’s Inside - Songs From Waitress (music she created for the broadway play). It really gave insight to songs that I’ve heard her sing but didn’t know the background.
    Cold for us in Houston this morning. 29degress wet weather so schools are closed for the day.
    Day 7: Sat, 2/5: 209.9 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine. Dinner at my daughter’s home. Requested to bring dessert so made lemon raspberry cupcakes for Fri & Sat night.

    1st Week Goal Weight: <210
    1st Week Actual Weight:209.9
    1st Week Weight Loss: 2.1
    Cold & wet weather kept me from exercising as much plus the volunteer teaching that overlaps with my exercise class. But those are just excuses … I can do much better with the meals, snacks and exercise. No choice on the meals Fri & Sat night but I did do well with portion control! I was the only one that didn’t go back for seconds.

    Day 8: Sun, 2/6: 211.0 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 blackberry liquor w/ club soda + 1 glass wine. Lunch at restaurant and then dinner at our friend’s home.
    Day 9: Mon, 2/7: 212.1 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. All the lemon raspberry cupcakes are now consumed! That was a yummy but terrible diet killer. Ate ~2-3 each day … Fri, Sat & Sun. Tried out a fun recipe Supreme Pizza (no crust) in a cast iron skillet. DH loved it too. I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger. https://lowcarbquick.com/deep-dish-pizza-casserole-keto
    Day 10: Tues, 2/8: 212.1 Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Accomplished a lot of to dos that have been on my list for a month … serviced car, submitted paperwork to HOA for window & siding replacement, dog to vet, etc etc.
    Day 11: Wed, 2/9: 212.4 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 12: Thurs, 2/10: 211.4 Walked 2.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lunch w/ DD. Purchased way too many cookies at the bakery and the grocery store! What was I thinking? Ate at least half a dozen.
    Day 13: Fri, 2/11: 211.9 Walked 2.9 + .8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Outside of volunteer teaching English … what did I accomplish? Definitely ate the rest of the cookies which was not helpful!
    Day 14: Sat, 2/12: 213.3 Strength Training 1 hr, No walk … lunch with DD, DIL and granddaughter, late afternoon drive with DH & our dog with the windows down on a beautiful day, happy hour glass of wine at 4pm and people watched. Too many snacks in the evening and not enough will power … total wine for the day 4 glasses.

    2nd Week Goal Weight: <210
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 213.3
    2nd Week Weight GAIN: 3.4
    The I don't give a dxxx attitude has got to stop. No more buying bakery cookies and eating a dozen. No more gobbling down chips at lunch and then snacking on them after dinner too. Eating out almost every day is also killing my good intentions. Mentally I'm a mess when it comes to wanting to lose the weight and it shows on the scale. I've gained back everything I lost in 2021.
    Made my menu for this week. Plan to grocery shop today and put healthier items in the pantry. Also need to get back to more exercise ... slacking off on the walking because I'm driving into town more often to meet up with my daughter and daughter-in-law for lunch multiple days. No excuse ... I could still walk on these days.


    Day 15: Sun: 2/13: 213.0 No exercise but busy all day meal planning, groceries, making decorations for baby shower, reading, visiting, etc. ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 16: Mon: 2/14: 212.1 Walked 2.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Super Bowl and did fairly well food wise … since I brought the veggies & dips and boiled shrimp. Dinner grilled hamburger no bun.
    Day 17: Tues: 2/15: 213.5 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Wed: 2/16: 210.5 SICK (sinus infection tested negative for covid) all day Tuesday. No exercise. Lots of sleep. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    Day 19: Thurs: 2/17: 211.0 Walked .9 miles. Started my normal walk but then it started to rain. ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. Worked on my long to do list and led book club at a new restaurant we wanted to try out. Mexican food and it looks like it will be a popular place for our group in the future.
    Day 20: Fri: 2/18: 211.9 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not a great eating day. Frozen pizza for lunch and then a pot pie for dinner. I did snack on bell pepper strips and carrots with black bean hummus as a snack.
    Day 21: Sat: 2/19: 211.4 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My son & DIL drove in from Austin to show us their new puppy. So much energy and you have to watch them all the time. But it was a wonderful socialization & intro to another dog since ours is calm and loving. They got a doberman w/ floppy ears and we have a standard poodle. Explosion of toys everywhere!

    Day 22: Sun: 2/20: 212.1 Walked 2.9 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Completely lost my voice due to sinus infection. Took another covid PCR like test using CUE to ensure that DH and I do not have covid before leaving this morning to Baton Rouge. Did not want to expose everyone since there will be 3 sets of great grandparents, 3 sets of grandparents and lots of children under age 9 at the baptism.

    Day 24: Tues: 2/22: 213.8 Walked 2.8 miles, missed my Strength Training class since travel day. AF at book club in the evening but ate the entire meal and did not half it like I should. Still suffering from sinus infection. :(
    Day 25: Wed: 2/23: DNW Walked .6 miles. AF! Taught class with very little vocal … which really makes it difficult for the adult students to understand me in the Learn English Ministry. Today we get my daughter’s dogs (2 golden doodles) while she and her husband go on vacation to celebrate her 30th birthday. How/When did I get old enough to have kids in their 30s? No getting enough sleep. This past week with the sinuses has made it very difficult to lie down and sleep. I’m a walking zombie and very much out of my routine of meal planning and exercise.
    Day 26: Thurs: 2/24: 112.4 No exercise … cold outside and now I have 3 large dogs which is harder to walk by myself. EXCUSES! Worked a hard puzzle all day that has been on my dining room table since Christmas. I gave myself a goal to finish it this week. I should give myself a few other health related goals! AF!
    Day 27: Fri: 2/25: 213.4 Walked 1.2 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Bundled up … DH & I got out and walked the 3 dogs :) Teaching ESL and working my puzzle.

    For Lent I’m committed to walk 100 miles in March (usual target but I’ve not done it since October), 1 strength training class in person and 1-2 virtual classes per week, no alcohol, journal my food, water over diet cokes, and NO snickers at the grocery store!
    Day 34: Fri, 3/4: 215.2 Walked 1 + 1.3 miles, gardened, 1759 cal (-180 red), 77 net carbs, AF. Went to the grocery store twice today and did NOT buy a snickers. The desire was there but my promise to myself won out.

Focusing this week on journaling everything and drinking more water … creating those good habits that lead to success. Oh grocery store and no snickers when I checked out! That is 3 trips to the grocery store in 2 days. I really had a conversation (battle) going in my head but I've passed on the snickers so far this week.
    Day 37: Mon, 3/7: 215.5 Walked 1.8 miles through River Oaks neighborhood on the Azalea Trail event with my daughter and her mother inlaw. 11700 steps. 1934 cal (-476 red), 113 net carbs, AF.

    Day 57: Sun, 3/27: 213.7 Walked Bayou City Art Fest but didn’t count it + .8 miles, 1677 cal (-236 red), 40 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Sister visited for dinner so of course there was wine.
    Day 58: Mon, 3/28: 214.7 Walked 5.1 miles, 1921 cal (-21 red), 47 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Really long walk today, visiting with my son and steak night!
    Day 59: Tues, 3/29: 213.5 Walked 2.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1510 cal (197 green), 65 net carbs, AF. Sore knee made it through my exercise class but skipped the lunges to baby the knee. Then walked to the library to drop off a book. Beautiful day. THEN rested the knee. Think I’ll take off tomorrow and not exercise since I really don’t want to push it … hobbling a little this evening.
    Day 60: Wed, 3/30: 213.4 Walked 1 mile taking it easy on my right knee which I twisted on the long walk Sunday, 1677 cal (-244 red), 99 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not bad choices eating out with friend at a new Italian restaurant. I kept it simple! One spinach manicotti and a side house salad with vinaigrette dressing. Avoided the basket of fresh bread which is hard but noticed that my friend also did not touch it. Executed planned dinner without a hitch as well.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 212.7 Walked .5 miles in park after lunch and before eye doctor appt instead of sitting in car! Strength Training 1 hr. 1593 cal (27 green), 56 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Not Keto but pushing for low net carbs between 50-100 daily and the weight is coming down gradually without all the extra sugar and carbs + drinking my water. Now if I can just keep it up. Adding daily vitamins back into my daily routine of better habits.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 213.6 No walk, but did garden … fertilizing the yard, weeding the veggie bed. Grocery shopped to make sure I have healthy options. However there is now Easter candy in the house. Yep I have 3 adult children that are married and I bought it for them. I give them the Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs usually … next weekend (not this weekend) we have an evening couples baby shower for my DD & her husband then Sunday a family crawfish boil. Bringing it to the crawfish boil … so I need to keep myself out of the bags this week! Tasted 2 Thursday. Now I need to move on! 1658 cal (-286 red), 81 net carbs, 3 glasses of wine.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2:
    9th Week Goal Weight: 210.x till I hit it!
    9th Week Actual Weight:

    Being up and weighing in at 3am drinking coffee is not healthy ... I need to get rid of this lingering cough I've had for 7 weeks. Last week doc put me on a Zpak antibiotics and while it helped it did not knock it down enough. Not Covid. Not Flu. Allergies? I've taken every thing I could think of to get rid of the drainage (cough meds, decongests, Benadryl, Zyrtec, gargling with warm salted water, etc). Nothing seems to work. :(

    @Lilylady3k
    I sometimes get clogged up at the beginning of gardening season, we send so many spores into the air when we begin to dig.
    Of course conditions here are much different than Texas. Here the snow covers everything and we get things like leaf mold which hits the air once it melts.
    Hoping that you get it cleared up soon.

    I am Dawn.
    I have gained weight the last few 100s
    Time to turn that around

    61 years old, 5'2"
    Highest weight 207
    Ultimate goal weight 110-115
    This is my 9th round on this forum, I joined it at 158.6


    5th Week Goal Weight: 135
    5th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5074 - My usual activity, but less calories in since it is really tough to get more calories when we are eating "clean".

    6th Week Goal Weight: 132
    6th Week Actual Weight: 139.2
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 3642 - Enough to lose a pound, but gained almost 4.

    7th Week Goal Weight: 135
    7th Week Actual Weight: 137.0
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4791 - more than enough to lose a pound

    8th Week Goal Weight: 135.0
    8th Week Actual Weight: 136.8 (started week at 138.8)
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4335, enough to lose a pound

    Day 57: Sun, 3/27: 137.2 - Friday's small indulgence catching up to me.
    Day 58: Mon, 3/28: 137.8 - No! Going to be extra good today.
    Day 59: Tues, 3/29: 136.2 - That seems more realistic, but having an evening out tonight. I will try to be careful.
    Day 60: Wed, 3/30: 135.2 - Very happy to see this number again (even though I said I never wanted to be that high in weight again). Very very late dinner after the Celtic Tenors concert, so expected a gain. Perhaps my body is in shock and it will show up later, but my calories were very low. Working late tonight, so I will have to be careful with my choices.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 135.2 - Surprised that I didn't gain, I basically had cocktails and snacks, no real dinner after a very long workday. Not very healthy choices, but I was too tired. Calories well within range. Today will be better.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 137.4 - Argh. Absolutely no reason for a 2.2 pound gain over night. Hoping that it is just a fluctuation. I will work out extra today.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2:

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.2 (ambitious)
    9th Week Actual Weight:
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker:

    Day 45…..03/15…..199.0…..(Trend weight 197.7)
    Day 46…..03/16…..199.8…..(Trend weight 197.9)


    Day 47…..03/17…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.1) No change in diet = no change on scale. I ended up taking my new tenant (from my brother’s cabin) out to dinner, which meant restaurant food, yet again. He is a young man on the Autism spectrum (like my son) who is venturing out on his own for the first time. He wanted a meeting to set the ground rules and to “adult”. His parents live on the same street so this could work well. It was hard to rent out this house that I had rented to my brother for so many years before his death. Today will be that leftover Chinese I didn’t get to.

    Day 48…..03/18…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.2) TMI was helpful. Yesterday was not the best of days with left over Chinese and other things I could have done without. I did have more steps overall for the day.

    Day 49…..03/19…..xxxxx…..(Trend weight xxxxx) Up about 4 hours earlier than usual this morning and was guzzling coffee before I realized I forgot to weigh. A broken routine this morning in every way. It’s going to be a rough day with very little sleep.


    Day 50…..03/20…..198.4…..(Trend weight 198.4) Relieved. My diet was about the same (so-so) but I did get in my 10,000 + steps. We are at the halfway point already? I did not even see that coming. Ouch!


    Halfway Progress Report: …..Pounds Lost so Far: 2.8 pounds GAINED. I’ve got some serious work to do!

    Day 51…..03/21…..198.0…..(Trend weight 198.3) My trend weight went down a touch and for that I am very happy. Up early posting and then I will be doing a travel day which is much further than usual. I am picking up something from facebook marketplace which is between 3 and 4 hours away (each way). Taking my handyman and there will be lunch or dinner out mid-state. Lots of sitting today so I don’t expect it will be that great tomorrow on the scale, but I will just keep working on it.

    Day 52…..03/22…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.4) Golden Corral during travel yesterday. I am aiming for a slim day today.

    Day 53…..03/23…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.5) One pound down today which is probably excess water from the travel/restaurant weight. I did okay yesterday diet-wise. I made some good choices but there is still lots of room for improvement.

    Day 54…..03/24…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.6) I mistyped my weight yesterday by a bit but I’ve corrected it now. No change today. Diet was okay until the snacking. Snacks lower in calorie but too many. However, I made an actual effort to get in my 10,000 steps and I am proud of the progress there. Getting in movement and exercise has been almost impossible and had definitely made my efforts more difficult. Gotta eat so gotta burn calories every day!

    Day 55…..03/25…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.7) I did horribly yesterday after grocery shopping for the wrong things. Treats for others turned into treats for me. I hope to grow some willpower and make today better.


    Day 56…..03/26…..199.2…..(Trend weight 198.8) I resolved an issue with my daughter (who is currently staying with me along with my 4 yr old DGS), so I am feeling a little bit better emotionally but it is still fragile. Trying not to eat every emotion.


    WEEK 8 LOSS OR GAIN: 0.8 GAIN


    Day 57…..03/27…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.0) Out-of-town travel about 90 minutes each way to the pizza parlor yesterday for my DGS’ 14th birthday. Of course there was pizza and cake but I skipped on the ice cream and stuck to water. My snacks last night were a bit out-of-control and I know that is the main reason for the uptick. That, too much sitting yesterday and then there is that milk last night that ALWAYS bloats me up. I’ll try hard today to make up for my transgressions yesterday.

    Day 58…..03/28…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.1) 3 meals instead of 2 but snacks were better.
    Day 59…..03/29…..199.8…..(Trend weight 199.2) So close to where I just don’t want to be again. So far from where I need to be. More changes needed.


    Day 60…..03/30…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.2) I’m not doing well enough to make any big differences. I’ve got to watch the carbs way more than I am right now.

    Day 61…..03/31…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.4)

    100 Days of Accountability 1/30-5/9
    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: 212 (1/29)
    Challenge Goal: <200
    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:
    * Prior to Oct roadtrip damage: 205
    * 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 2022 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/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 1: Sun, 1/30: 211.4 Walked 3.9 miles, 1823 cal (-99 red), 100 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Highly recommend this recipe for a London Broil. I cooked it twice now ... in the oven and grilled and both turn out great. Love the marinade (2-12 hrs). I used Tamari (Japanese form of soy sauce) instead of the Coconut Aminos. Think I’m going to try the marinade out on chicken next.

    Day 2: Mon, 1/31: 210.1 Walked 3 miles, 1763 cal (-112 red), 65 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. The above marinade works wonders with chicken legs! Completed menu plan and grocery list for this week. Also prepped the Unit 1 for volunteer teaching ESL/LEM (Learn English Ministry).Day 3: Tues, 2/1: 210.2 Rain so no walk, Strength Training 1 hr, 1867 cal (-350 red), 51 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Successful grocery shopping trip this morning led to following through with my menu planning for lunch & dinner! BONUS: I did NOT pick up a Snickers at the checkout when grocery shopping.
    Day 4: Wed, 2/2: 211.8 Walked 1.5 miles, 2082 cal (-575 red), 164 net carbs, 2 glasses wine + bourbon & diet sprite. Skipped strength training class since I’m teaching English on Tues & Thurs mornings now. I need to find a new exercise schedule that works! Loved my new photography with the cell phone class! Great plan for both lunch & dinner. HOWEVER, the community center gave me a box of fried rice, egg roll and fortune cookie to celebrate lunar new year when I went to class. I took it home and added it to our dinner … which took me into the red for the day.
    Day 5: Thurs, 2/3: 212.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 2033 cal (-569 red), 71 net carbs, Torchy’s Tini. Crazy day driving up early after not sleeping well to babysit granddaughter while my DIL went to doctor, both lunch & dinner dined out, no real exercise … short walk but skipped my strength training class in the evening because I was exhausted. Terrible excuses and the number on the scale is a reflection of my poor choices.
    Day 6: Fri, 2/4: 210.1 Walked 1.3 miles, 1690 cal (-199 red), 63 net carbs, 1 bourbon & diet sprite. Watched the 2007 movie Waitress on Amazon. Then watched on YouTube the Sara Bareilles concert What’s Inside - Songs From Waitress (music she created for the broadway play). It really gave insight to songs that I’ve heard her sing but didn’t know the background.
    Cold for us in Houston this morning. 29degress wet weather so schools are closed for the day.
    Day 7: Sat, 2/5: 209.9 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine. Dinner at my daughter’s home. Requested to bring dessert so made lemon raspberry cupcakes for Fri & Sat night.

    Cold & wet weather kept me from exercising as much plus the volunteer teaching that overlaps with my exercise class. But those are just excuses … I can do much better with the meals, snacks and exercise. No choice on the meals Fri & Sat night but I did do well with portion control! I was the only one that didn’t go back for seconds.

    Day 8: Sun, 2/6: 211.0 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 blackberry liquor w/ club soda + 1 glass wine. Lunch at restaurant and then dinner at our friend’s home.
    Day 9: Mon, 2/7: 212.1 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. All the lemon raspberry cupcakes are now consumed! That was a yummy but terrible diet killer. Ate ~2-3 each day … Fri, Sat & Sun. Tried out a fun recipe Supreme Pizza (no crust) in a cast iron skillet. DH loved it too. I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger. https://lowcarbquick.com/deep-dish-pizza-casserole-keto
    Day 10: Tues, 2/8: 212.1 Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Accomplished a lot of to dos that have been on my list for a month … serviced car, submitted paperwork to HOA for window & siding replacement, dog to vet, etc etc.
    Day 11: Wed, 2/9: 212.4 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 12: Thurs, 2/10: 211.4 Walked 2.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lunch w/ DD. Purchased way too many cookies at the bakery and the grocery store! What was I thinking? Ate at least half a dozen.
    Day 13: Fri, 2/11: 211.9 Walked 2.9 + .8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Outside of volunteer teaching English … what did I accomplish? Definitely ate the rest of the cookies which was not helpful!
    Day 14: Sat, 2/12: 213.3 Strength Training 1 hr, No walk … lunch with DD, DIL and granddaughter, late afternoon drive with DH & our dog with the windows down on a beautiful day, happy hour glass of wine at 4pm and people watched. Too many snacks in the evening and not enough will power … total wine for the day 4 glasses.

    The I don't give a dxxx attitude has got to stop. No more buying bakery cookies and eating a dozen. No more gobbling down chips at lunch and then snacking on them after dinner too. Eating out almost every day is also killing my good intentions. Mentally I'm a mess when it comes to wanting to lose the weight and it shows on the scale. I've gained back everything I lost in 2021.
    Made my menu for this week. Plan to grocery shop today and put healthier items in the pantry. Also need to get back to more exercise ... slacking off on the walking because I'm driving into town more often to meet up with my daughter and daughter-in-law for lunch multiple days. No excuse ... I could still walk on these days.


    Day 15: Sun: 2/13: 213.0 No exercise but busy all day meal planning, groceries, making decorations for baby shower, reading, visiting, etc. ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 16: Mon: 2/14: 212.1 Walked 2.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Super Bowl and did fairly well food wise … since I brought the veggies & dips and boiled shrimp. Dinner grilled hamburger no bun.
    Day 17: Tues: 2/15: 213.5 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Wed: 2/16: 210.5 SICK (sinus infection tested negative for covid) all day Tuesday. No exercise. Lots of sleep. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    Day 19: Thurs: 2/17: 211.0 Walked .9 miles. Started my normal walk but then it started to rain. ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. Worked on my long to do list and led book club at a new restaurant we wanted to try out. Mexican food and it looks like it will be a popular place for our group in the future.
    Day 20: Fri: 2/18: 211.9 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not a great eating day. Frozen pizza for lunch and then a pot pie for dinner. I did snack on bell pepper strips and carrots with black bean hummus as a snack.
    Day 21: Sat: 2/19: 211.4 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My son & DIL drove in from Austin to show us their new puppy. So much energy and you have to watch them all the time. But it was a wonderful socialization & intro to another dog since ours is calm and loving. They got a doberman w/ floppy ears and we have a standard poodle. Explosion of toys everywhere!

    Day 22: Sun: 2/20: 212.1 Walked 2.9 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Completely lost my voice due to sinus infection. Took another covid PCR like test using CUE to ensure that DH and I do not have covid before leaving this morning to Baton Rouge. Did not want to expose everyone since there will be 3 sets of great grandparents, 3 sets of grandparents and lots of children under age 9 at the baptism.

    Day 24: Tues: 2/22: 213.8 Walked 2.8 miles, missed my Strength Training class since travel day. AF at book club in the evening but ate the entire meal and did not half it like I should. Still suffering from sinus infection. :(
    Day 25: Wed: 2/23: DNW Walked .6 miles. AF! Taught class with very little vocal … which really makes it difficult for the adult students to understand me in the Learn English Ministry. Today we get my daughter’s dogs (2 golden doodles) while she and her husband go on vacation to celebrate her 30th birthday. How/When did I get old enough to have kids in their 30s? No getting enough sleep. This past week with the sinuses has made it very difficult to lie down and sleep. I’m a walking zombie and very much out of my routine of meal planning and exercise.
    Day 26: Thurs: 2/24: 112.4 No exercise … cold outside and now I have 3 large dogs which is harder to walk by myself. EXCUSES! Worked a hard puzzle all day that has been on my dining room table since Christmas. I gave myself a goal to finish it this week. I should give myself a few other health related goals! AF!
    Day 27: Fri: 2/25: 213.4 Walked 1.2 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Bundled up … DH & I got out and walked the 3 dogs :) Teaching ESL and working my puzzle.

    For Lent I’m committed to walk 100 miles in March (usual target but I’ve not done it since October), 1 strength training class in person and 1-2 virtual classes per week, no alcohol, journal my food, water over diet cokes, and NO snickers at the grocery store!
    Day 34: Fri, 3/4: 215.2 Walked 1 + 1.3 miles, gardened, 1759 cal (-180 red), 77 net carbs, AF. Went to the grocery store twice today and did NOT buy a snickers. The desire was there but my promise to myself won out.

Focusing this week on journaling everything and drinking more water … creating those good habits that lead to success. Oh grocery store and no snickers when I checked out! That is 3 trips to the grocery store in 2 days. I really had a conversation (battle) going in my head but I've passed on the snickers so far this week.
    Day 37: Mon, 3/7: 215.5 Walked 1.8 miles through River Oaks neighborhood on the Azalea Trail event with my daughter and her mother inlaw. 11700 steps. 1934 cal (-476 red), 113 net carbs, AF.

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 57: Sun, 3/27: 213.7 Walked Bayou City Art Fest but didn’t count it + .8 miles, 1677 cal (-236 red), 40 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Sister visited for dinner so of course there was wine.
    Day 58: Mon, 3/28: 214.7 Walked 5.1 miles, 1921 cal (-21 red), 47 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Really long walk today, visiting with my son and steak night!
    Day 59: Tues, 3/29: 213.5 Walked 2.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1510 cal (197 green), 65 net carbs, AF. Sore knee made it through my exercise class but skipped the lunges to baby the knee. Then walked to the library to drop off a book. Beautiful day. THEN rested the knee. Think I’ll take off tomorrow and not exercise since I really don’t want to push it … hobbling a little this evening.
    Day 60: Wed, 3/30: 213.4 Walked 1 mile taking it easy on my right knee which I twisted on the long walk Sunday, 1677 cal (-244 red), 99 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not bad choices eating out with friend at a new Italian restaurant. I kept it simple! One spinach manicotti and a side house salad with vinaigrette dressing. Avoided the basket of fresh bread which is hard but noticed that my friend also did not touch it. Executed planned dinner without a hitch as well.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 212.7 Walked .5 miles in park after lunch and before eye doctor appt instead of sitting in car! Strength Training 1 hr. 1593 cal (27 green), 56 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Not Keto but pushing for low net carbs between 50-100 daily and the weight is coming down gradually without all the extra sugar and carbs + drinking my water. Now if I can just keep it up. Adding daily vitamins back into my daily routine of better habits.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 213.6 No walk, but did garden … fertilizing the yard, weeding the veggie bed. Grocery shopped to make sure I have healthy options. However there is now Easter candy in the house. Yep I have 3 adult children that are married and I bought it for them. I give them the Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs usually … next weekend (not this weekend) we have an evening couples baby shower for my DD & her husband then Sunday a family crawfish boil. Bringing it to the crawfish boil … so I need to keep myself out of the bags this week! Tasted 2 Thursday. Now I need to move on! 1658 cal (-286 red), 81 net carbs, 3 glasses of wine.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2: 214.8 Walked 1 + 3 miles, 1700 cal (9 green), 86 net carbs (included 5 Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs ARGHHH), 2 glasses wine. I felt from all the sugar … hope I learned my lesson. Some of the lack of will power might be from starting my day at 3am because I couldn’t sleep due to the coughing. Got some different allergy meds to try out at the pharmacy.

    Day 45…..03/15…..199.0…..(Trend weight 197.7)
    Day 46…..03/16…..199.8…..(Trend weight 197.9)


    Day 47…..03/17…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.1) No change in diet = no change on scale. I ended up taking my new tenant (from my brother’s cabin) out to dinner, which meant restaurant food, yet again. He is a young man on the Autism spectrum (like my son) who is venturing out on his own for the first time. He wanted a meeting to set the ground rules and to “adult”. His parents live on the same street so this could work well. It was hard to rent out this house that I had rented to my brother for so many years before his death. Today will be that leftover Chinese I didn’t get to.

    Day 48…..03/18…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.2) TMI was helpful. Yesterday was not the best of days with left over Chinese and other things I could have done without. I did have more steps overall for the day.

    Day 49…..03/19…..xxxxx…..(Trend weight xxxxx) Up about 4 hours earlier than usual this morning and was guzzling coffee before I realized I forgot to weigh. A broken routine this morning in every way. It’s going to be a rough day with very little sleep.


    Day 50…..03/20…..198.4…..(Trend weight 198.4) Relieved. My diet was about the same (so-so) but I did get in my 10,000 + steps. We are at the halfway point already? I did not even see that coming. Ouch!


    Halfway Progress Report: …..Pounds Lost so Far: 2.8 pounds GAINED. I’ve got some serious work to do!

    Day 51…..03/21…..198.0…..(Trend weight 198.3) My trend weight went down a touch and for that I am very happy. Up early posting and then I will be doing a travel day which is much further than usual. I am picking up something from facebook marketplace which is between 3 and 4 hours away (each way). Taking my handyman and there will be lunch or dinner out mid-state. Lots of sitting today so I don’t expect it will be that great tomorrow on the scale, but I will just keep working on it.

    Day 52…..03/22…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.4) Golden Corral during travel yesterday. I am aiming for a slim day today.

    Day 53…..03/23…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.5) One pound down today which is probably excess water from the travel/restaurant weight. I did okay yesterday diet-wise. I made some good choices but there is still lots of room for improvement.

    Day 54…..03/24…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.6) I mistyped my weight yesterday by a bit but I’ve corrected it now. No change today. Diet was okay until the snacking. Snacks lower in calorie but too many. However, I made an actual effort to get in my 10,000 steps and I am proud of the progress there. Getting in movement and exercise has been almost impossible and had definitely made my efforts more difficult. Gotta eat so gotta burn calories every day!

    Day 55…..03/25…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.7) I did horribly yesterday after grocery shopping for the wrong things. Treats for others turned into treats for me. I hope to grow some willpower and make today better.


    Day 56…..03/26…..199.2…..(Trend weight 198.8) I resolved an issue with my daughter (who is currently staying with me along with my 4 yr old DGS), so I am feeling a little bit better emotionally but it is still fragile. Trying not to eat every emotion.


    WEEK 8 LOSS OR GAIN: 0.8 GAIN


    Day 57…..03/27…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.0) Out-of-town travel about 90 minutes each way to the pizza parlor yesterday for my DGS’ 14th birthday. Of course there was pizza and cake but I skipped on the ice cream and stuck to water. My snacks last night were a bit out-of-control and I know that is the main reason for the uptick. That, too much sitting yesterday and then there is that milk last night that ALWAYS bloats me up. I’ll try hard today to make up for my transgressions yesterday.

    Day 58…..03/28…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.1) 3 meals instead of 2 but snacks were better.
    Day 59…..03/29…..199.8…..(Trend weight 199.2) So close to where I just don’t want to be again. So far from where I need to be. More changes needed.


    Day 60…..03/30…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.2) I’m not doing well enough to make any big differences. I’ve got to watch the carbs way more than I am right now.

    Day 61…..03/31…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.4)

    Weight Loss in March:……………….. 1.4 lb Gain
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss….. 4.4 lb GAIN


    Day 62…..04/01…..199.8…..(Trend weight 199.4)
    Day 63…..04/02…..198.6…..(Trend weight 199.6) A very small dinner, no snacks. Very tired last night. Got in more sleep than usual. A good TMI this morning. A lot of good contributing factors to a loss on the scale.

    Day 19: Thu, 2/17: 134.4 Expected bump. Yesterday’s drop was too much. Nice, but not realistic. Did good at lunch yesterday.

    Day 45: Tue, 3/15: 133.6 Don’t know where this uptick came from. I was 100% yesterday. It’s possible that yesterday’s weight was too low. I was physically sick Sunday night and may have been a bit dehydrated.

    I am Dawn.
    I have gained weight the last few 100s
    Time to turn that around

    61 years old, 5'2"
    Highest weight 207
    Ultimate goal weight 110-115
    This is my 9th round on this forum, I joined it at 158.6


    5th Week Goal Weight: 135
    5th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5074 - My usual activity, but less calories in since it is really tough to get more calories when we are eating "clean".

    6th Week Goal Weight: 132
    6th Week Actual Weight: 139.2
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 3642 - Enough to lose a pound, but gained almost 4.

    7th Week Goal Weight: 135
    7th Week Actual Weight: 137.0
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4791 - more than enough to lose a pound

    8th Week Goal Weight: 135.0
    8th Week Actual Weight: 136.8 (started week at 138.8)
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4335, enough to lose a pound

    Day 57: Sun, 3/27: 137.2 - Friday's small indulgence catching up to me.
    Day 58: Mon, 3/28: 137.8 - No! Going to be extra good today.
    Day 59: Tues, 3/29: 136.2 - That seems more realistic, but having an evening out tonight. I will try to be careful.
    Day 60: Wed, 3/30: 135.2 - Very happy to see this number again (even though I said I never wanted to be that high in weight again). Very very late dinner after the Celtic Tenors concert, so expected a gain. Perhaps my body is in shock and it will show up later, but my calories were very low. Working late tonight, so I will have to be careful with my choices.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 135.2 - Surprised that I didn't gain, I basically had cocktails and snacks, no real dinner after a very long workday. Not very healthy choices, but I was too tired. Calories well within range. Today will be better.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 137.4 - Argh. Absolutely no reason for a 2.2 pound gain over night. Hoping that it is just a fluctuation. I will work out extra today.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2: 136.2 - Had a stressful work situation and didn't eat all day and then ate a bit, but nothing nutritious. Tonight will be different for sure, chicken breast, yams, brussels sprouts all prepped with time to eat properly.

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.2 (ambitious)
    9th Week Actual Weight: 136.2 - Started the week at 137.2, so I'll take it even though I hit 135.2 this week.
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: I will fill this in after today's numbers.


    Start weight this 100: 138.4 - Highest start weight for the last 4 100s

    100 Days of Accountability 1/30-5/9
    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: 212 (1/29)
    Challenge Goal: <200
    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:
    * Prior to Oct roadtrip damage: 205
    * 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 2022 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/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 1: Sun, 1/30: 211.4 Walked 3.9 miles, 1823 cal (-99 red), 100 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Highly recommend this recipe for a London Broil. I cooked it twice now ... in the oven and grilled and both turn out great. Love the marinade (2-12 hrs). I used Tamari (Japanese form of soy sauce) instead of the Coconut Aminos. Think I’m going to try the marinade out on chicken next.
    https://www.wholesomeyum.com/london-broil/#What_Is_London_Broil
    Day 2: Mon, 1/31: 210.1 Walked 3 miles, 1763 cal (-112 red), 65 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. The above marinade works wonders with chicken legs! Completed menu plan and grocery list for this week. Also prepped the Unit 1 for volunteer teaching ESL/LEM (Learn English Ministry).Day 3: Tues, 2/1: 210.2 Rain so no walk, Strength Training 1 hr, 1867 cal (-350 red), 51 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Successful grocery shopping trip this morning led to following through with my menu planning for lunch & dinner! BONUS: I did NOT pick up a Snickers at the checkout when grocery shopping.
    Day 4: Wed, 2/2: 211.8 Walked 1.5 miles, 2082 cal (-575 red), 164 net carbs, 2 glasses wine + bourbon & diet sprite. Skipped strength training class since I’m teaching English on Tues & Thurs mornings now. I need to find a new exercise schedule that works! Loved my new photography with the cell phone class! Great plan for both lunch & dinner. HOWEVER, the community center gave me a box of fried rice, egg roll and fortune cookie to celebrate lunar new year when I went to class. I took it home and added it to our dinner … which took me into the red for the day.
    Day 5: Thurs, 2/3: 212.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 2033 cal (-569 red), 71 net carbs, Torchy’s Tini. Crazy day driving up early after not sleeping well to babysit granddaughter while my DIL went to doctor, both lunch & dinner dined out, no real exercise … short walk but skipped my strength training class in the evening because I was exhausted. Terrible excuses and the number on the scale is a reflection of my poor choices.
    Day 6: Fri, 2/4: 210.1 Walked 1.3 miles, 1690 cal (-199 red), 63 net carbs, 1 bourbon & diet sprite. Watched the 2007 movie Waitress on Amazon. Then watched on YouTube the Sara Bareilles concert What’s Inside - Songs From Waitress (music she created for the broadway play). It really gave insight to songs that I’ve heard her sing but didn’t know the background.
    Cold for us in Houston this morning. 29degress wet weather so schools are closed for the day.
    Day 7: Sat, 2/5: 209.9 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine. Dinner at my daughter’s home. Requested to bring dessert so made lemon raspberry cupcakes for Fri & Sat night.

    1st Week Goal Weight: <210
    1st Week Actual Weight:209.9
    1st Week Weight Loss: 2.1
    Cold & wet weather kept me from exercising as much plus the volunteer teaching that overlaps with my exercise class. But those are just excuses … I can do much better with the meals, snacks and exercise. No choice on the meals Fri & Sat night but I did do well with portion control! I was the only one that didn’t go back for seconds.

    Day 8: Sun, 2/6: 211.0 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 blackberry liquor w/ club soda + 1 glass wine. Lunch at restaurant and then dinner at our friend’s home.
    Day 9: Mon, 2/7: 212.1 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. All the lemon raspberry cupcakes are now consumed! That was a yummy but terrible diet killer. Ate ~2-3 each day … Fri, Sat & Sun. Tried out a fun recipe Supreme Pizza (no crust) in a cast iron skillet. DH loved it too. I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger. https://lowcarbquick.com/deep-dish-pizza-casserole-keto
    Day 10: Tues, 2/8: 212.1 Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Accomplished a lot of to dos that have been on my list for a month … serviced car, submitted paperwork to HOA for window & siding replacement, dog to vet, etc etc.
    Day 11: Wed, 2/9: 212.4 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 12: Thurs, 2/10: 211.4 Walked 2.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lunch w/ DD. Purchased way too many cookies at the bakery and the grocery store! What was I thinking? Ate at least half a dozen.
    Day 13: Fri, 2/11: 211.9 Walked 2.9 + .8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Outside of volunteer teaching English … what did I accomplish? Definitely ate the rest of the cookies which was not helpful!

    The I don't give a dxxx attitude has got to stop. No more buying bakery cookies and eating a dozen. No more gobbling down chips at lunch and then snacking on them after dinner too. Eating out almost every day is also killing my good intentions. Mentally I'm a mess when it comes to wanting to lose the weight and it shows on the scale. I've gained back everything I lost in 2021.
    Made my menu for this week. Plan to grocery shop today and put healthier items in the pantry. Also need to get back to more exercise ... slacking off on the walking because I'm driving into town more often to meet up with my daughter and daughter-in-law for lunch multiple days. No excuse ... I could still walk on these days.


    Day 15: Sun: 2/13: 213.0 No exercise but busy all day meal planning, groceries, making decorations for baby shower, reading, visiting, etc. ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 16: Mon: 2/14: 212.1 Walked 2.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Super Bowl and did fairly well food wise … since I brought the veggies & dips and boiled shrimp. Dinner grilled hamburger no bun.
    Day 17: Tues: 2/15: 213.5 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Wed: 2/16: 210.5 SICK (sinus infection tested negative for covid) all day Tuesday. No exercise. Lots of sleep. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    Day 19: Thurs: 2/17: 211.0 Walked .9 miles. Started my normal walk but then it started to rain. ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. Worked on my long to do list and led book club at a new restaurant we wanted to try out. Mexican food and it looks like it will be a popular place for our group in the future.
    Day 20: Fri: 2/18: 211.9 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not a great eating day. Frozen pizza for lunch and then a pot pie for dinner. I did snack on bell pepper strips and carrots with black bean hummus as a snack.
    Day 21: Sat: 2/19: 211.4 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My son & DIL drove in from Austin to show us their new puppy. So much energy and you have to watch them all the time. But it was a wonderful socialization & intro to another dog since ours is calm and loving. They got a doberman w/ floppy ears and we have a standard poodle. Explosion of toys everywhere!

    Day 22: Sun: 2/20: 212.1 Walked 2.9 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Completely lost my voice due to sinus infection. Took another covid PCR like test using CUE to ensure that DH and I do not have covid before leaving this morning to Baton Rouge. Did not want to expose everyone since there will be 3 sets of great grandparents, 3 sets of grandparents and lots of children under age 9 at the baptism.

    Day 24: Tues: 2/22: 213.8 Walked 2.8 miles, missed my Strength Training class since travel day. AF at book club in the evening but ate the entire meal and did not half it like I should. Still suffering from sinus infection. :(
    Day 25: Wed: 2/23: DNW Walked .6 miles. AF! Taught class with very little vocal … which really makes it difficult for the adult students to understand me in the Learn English Ministry. Today we get my daughter’s dogs (2 golden doodles) while she and her husband go on vacation to celebrate her 30th birthday. How/When did I get old enough to have kids in their 30s? No getting enough sleep. This past week with the sinuses has made it very difficult to lie down and sleep. I’m a walking zombie and very much out of my routine of meal planning and exercise.
    Day 26: Thurs: 2/24: 112.4 No exercise … cold outside and now I have 3 large dogs which is harder to walk by myself. EXCUSES! Worked a hard puzzle all day that has been on my dining room table since Christmas. I gave myself a goal to finish it this week. I should give myself a few other health related goals! AF!
    Day 27: Fri: 2/25: 213.4 Walked 1.2 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Bundled up … DH & I got out and walked the 3 dogs :) Teaching ESL and working my puzzle.

    For Lent I’m committed to walk 100 miles in March (usual target but I’ve not done it since October), 1 strength training class in person and 1-2 virtual classes per week, no alcohol, journal my food, water over diet cokes, and NO snickers at the grocery store!
    Day 34: Fri, 3/4: 215.2 Walked 1 + 1.3 miles, gardened, 1759 cal (-180 red), 77 net carbs, AF. Went to the grocery store twice today and did NOT buy a snickers. The desire was there but my promise to myself won out.

Focusing this week on journaling everything and drinking more water … creating those good habits that lead to success. Oh grocery store and no snickers when I checked out! That is 3 trips to the grocery store in 2 days. I really had a conversation (battle) going in my head but I've passed on the snickers so far this week.
    Day 37: Mon, 3/7: 215.5 Walked 1.8 miles through River Oaks neighborhood on the Azalea Trail event with my daughter and her mother inlaw. 11700 steps. 1934 cal (-476 red), 113 net carbs, AF. Large BBQ dinner for my son, his wife & my sister … way too full. On top of that my daughter gave us lots of cake leftover from her crawfish boil … which I regret eating.
    Day 38: Tues, 3/8: 214.2 Walked 1.3 + .6 miles, 7000 steps, 1644 cal (-99 red), 130 net carbs, AF. I retired in Jan 2019.

    Day 39: Wed, 3/9: 215.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 7400 steps, 2110 cal (-626 red), 133 net carbs, AF. BBQ for lunch & Mexican for dinner but I think the goldfish snacking really did me in.

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 57: Sun, 3/27: 213.7 Walked Bayou City Art Fest but didn’t count it + .8 miles, 1677 cal (-236 red), 40 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Sister visited for dinner so of course there was wine.
    Day 58: Mon, 3/28: 214.7 Walked 5.1 miles, 1921 cal (-21 red), 47 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Really long walk today, visiting with my son and steak night!
    Day 59: Tues, 3/29: 213.5 Walked 2.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1510 cal (197 green), 65 net carbs, AF. Sore knee made it through my exercise class but skipped the lunges to baby the knee. Then walked to the library to drop off a book. Beautiful day. THEN rested the knee. Think I’ll take off tomorrow and not exercise since I really don’t want to push it … hobbling a little this evening.
    Day 60: Wed, 3/30: 213.4 Walked 1 mile taking it easy on my right knee which I twisted on the long walk Sunday, 1677 cal (-244 red), 99 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not bad choices eating out with friend at a new Italian restaurant. I kept it simple! One spinach manicotti and a side house salad with vinaigrette dressing. Avoided the basket of fresh bread which is hard but noticed that my friend also did not touch it. Executed planned dinner without a hitch as well.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 212.7 Walked .5 miles in park after lunch and before eye doctor appt instead of sitting in car! Strength Training 1 hr. 1593 cal (27 green), 56 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Not Keto but pushing for low net carbs between 50-100 daily and the weight is coming down gradually without all the extra sugar and carbs + drinking my water. Now if I can just keep it up. Adding daily vitamins back into my daily routine of better habits.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 213.6 No walk, but did garden … fertilizing the yard, weeding the veggie bed. Grocery shopped to make sure I have healthy options. However there is now Easter candy in the house. Yep I have 3 adult children that are married and I bought it for them. I give them the Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs usually … next weekend (not this weekend) we have an evening couples baby shower for my DD & her husband then Sunday a family crawfish boil. Bringing it to the crawfish boil … so I need to keep myself out of the bags this week! Tasted 2 Thursday. Now I need to move on! 1658 cal (-286 red), 81 net carbs, 3 glasses of wine.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2: 214.8 Walked 1 + 3 miles, 1700 cal (9 green), 86 net carbs (included 5 Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs ARGHHH), 2 glasses wine. I felt from all the sugar … hope I learned my lesson. Some of the lack of will power might be from starting my day at 3am because I couldn’t sleep due to the coughing. Got some different allergy meds to try out at the pharmacy.
    9th Week Goal Weight: 210.x till I hit it!

    Day 64: Sun, 4/3: 215.0 No walk, plant shopping and then lots of gardening instead. 1940 cal (-259 red), 161 net carbs. I did really good on the eating front until my sister invited us over for dinner. Then it was a carb & wine fest with pasta, pork piccata, zipper cream peas and 4 glasses of wine. That meal I estimated to be over 1000 cal and over 100 net carbs alone!

    Day 46…..03/16…..199.8…..(Trend weight 197.9)


    Day 47…..03/17…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.1) No change in diet = no change on scale. I ended up taking my new tenant (from my brother’s cabin) out to dinner, which meant restaurant food, yet again. He is a young man on the Autism spectrum (like my son) who is venturing out on his own for the first time. He wanted a meeting to set the ground rules and to “adult”. His parents live on the same street so this could work well. It was hard to rent out this house that I had rented to my brother for so many years before his death. Today will be that leftover Chinese I didn’t get to.

    Day 48…..03/18…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.2) TMI was helpful. Yesterday was not the best of days with left over Chinese and other things I could have done without. I did have more steps overall for the day.

    Day 49…..03/19…..xxxxx…..(Trend weight xxxxx) Up about 4 hours earlier than usual this morning and was guzzling coffee before I realized I forgot to weigh. A broken routine this morning in every way. It’s going to be a rough day with very little sleep.


    Day 50…..03/20…..198.4…..(Trend weight 198.4) Relieved. My diet was about the same (so-so) but I did get in my 10,000 + steps. We are at the halfway point already? I did not even see that coming. Ouch!

    Day 51…..03/21…..198.0…..(Trend weight 198.3) My trend weight went down a touch and for that I am very happy. Up early posting and then I will be doing a travel day which is much further than usual. I am picking up something from facebook marketplace which is between 3 and 4 hours away (each way). Taking my handyman and there will be lunch or dinner out mid-state. Lots of sitting today so I don’t expect it will be that great tomorrow on the scale, but I will just keep working on it.

    Day 52…..03/22…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.4) Golden Corral during travel yesterday. I am aiming for a slim day today.

    Day 53…..03/23…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.5) One pound down today which is probably excess water from the travel/restaurant weight. I did okay yesterday diet-wise. I made some good choices but there is still lots of room for improvement.

    Day 54…..03/24…..198.8…..(Trend weight 198.6) I mistyped my weight yesterday by a bit but I’ve corrected it now. No change today. Diet was okay until the snacking. Snacks lower in calorie but too many. However, I made an actual effort to get in my 10,000 steps and I am proud of the progress there. Getting in movement and exercise has been almost impossible and had definitely made my efforts more difficult. Gotta eat so gotta burn calories every day!

    Day 55…..03/25…..199.8…..(Trend weight 198.7) I did horribly yesterday after grocery shopping for the wrong things. Treats for others turned into treats for me. I hope to grow some willpower and make today better.


    Day 56…..03/26…..199.2…..(Trend weight 198.8) I resolved an issue with my daughter (who is currently staying with me along with my 4 yr old DGS), so I am feeling a little bit better emotionally but it is still fragile. Trying not to eat every emotion.


    WEEK 8 LOSS OR GAIN: 0.8 GAIN


    Day 57…..03/27…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.0) Out-of-town travel about 90 minutes each way to the pizza parlor yesterday for my DGS’ 14th birthday. Of course there was pizza and cake but I skipped on the ice cream and stuck to water. My snacks last night were a bit out-of-control and I know that is the main reason for the uptick. That, too much sitting yesterday and then there is that milk last night that ALWAYS bloats me up. I’ll try hard today to make up for my transgressions yesterday.

    Day 58…..03/28…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.1) 3 meals instead of 2 but snacks were better.
    Day 59…..03/29…..199.8…..(Trend weight 199.2) So close to where I just don’t want to be again. So far from where I need to be. More changes needed.


    Day 60…..03/30…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.2) I’m not doing well enough to make any big differences. I’ve got to watch the carbs way more than I am right now.

    Day 61…..03/31…..199.6…..(Trend weight 199.4)

    Weight Loss in March:……………….. 1.4 lb Gain
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss….. 4.4 lb GAIN


    Day 62…..04/01…..199.8…..(Trend weight 199.4)
    Day 63…..04/02…..198.6…..(Trend weight 199.6) A very small dinner, no snacks. Very tired last night. Got in more sleep than usual. A good TMI this morning. A lot of good contributing factors to a loss on the scale.


    WEEK 9 LOSS OR GAIN: 0.6 Loss


    Day 64…..04/03…..199.8…..(Trend weight 199.6) Lunch out with a friend yesterday. ½ for lunch and ½ for dinner. Bouncy-bounce.

I’m watching every minute of the Olympics (except for hockey) and I have a sprained wrist so its hard to type. I’m still weighing every day tho!

    Day 19: Thu, 2/17: 134.4 Expected bump. Yesterday’s drop was too much. Nice, but not realistic. Did good at lunch yesterday.

    Day 45: Tue, 3/15: 133.6 Don’t know where this uptick came from. I was 100% yesterday. It’s possible that yesterday’s weight was too low. I was physically sick Sunday night and may have been a bit dehydrated.

    100 Days of Accountability 1/30-5/9
    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: 212 (1/29)
    Challenge Goal: <200
    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:
    * Prior to Oct roadtrip damage: 205
    * 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 2022 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/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 1: Sun, 1/30: 211.4 Walked 3.9 miles, 1823 cal (-99 red), 100 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Highly recommend this recipe for a London Broil. I cooked it twice now ... in the oven and grilled and both turn out great. Love the marinade (2-12 hrs). I used Tamari (Japanese form of soy sauce) instead of the Coconut Aminos. Think I’m going to try the marinade out on chicken next.

    Day 2: Mon, 1/31: 210.1 Walked 3 miles, 1763 cal (-112 red), 65 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. The above marinade works wonders with chicken legs! Completed menu plan and grocery list for this week. Also prepped the Unit 1 for volunteer teaching ESL/LEM (Learn English Ministry).Day 3: Tues, 2/1: 210.2 Rain so no walk, Strength Training 1 hr, 1867 cal (-350 red), 51 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Successful grocery shopping trip this morning led to following through with my menu planning for lunch & dinner! BONUS: I did NOT pick up a Snickers at the checkout when grocery shopping.
    Day 4: Wed, 2/2: 211.8 Walked 1.5 miles, 2082 cal (-575 red), 164 net carbs, 2 glasses wine + bourbon & diet sprite. Skipped strength training class since I’m teaching English on Tues & Thurs mornings now. I need to find a new exercise schedule that works! Loved my new photography with the cell phone class! Great plan for both lunch & dinner. HOWEVER, the community center gave me a box of fried rice, egg roll and fortune cookie to celebrate lunar new year when I went to class. I took it home and added it to our dinner … which took me into the red for the day.
    Day 5: Thurs, 2/3: 212.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 2033 cal (-569 red), 71 net carbs, Torchy’s Tini. Crazy day driving up early after not sleeping well to babysit granddaughter while my DIL went to doctor, both lunch & dinner dined out, no real exercise … short walk but skipped my strength training class in the evening because I was exhausted. Terrible excuses and the number on the scale is a reflection of my poor choices.
    Day 6: Fri, 2/4: 210.1 Walked 1.3 miles, 1690 cal (-199 red), 63 net carbs, 1 bourbon & diet sprite. Watched the 2007 movie Waitress on Amazon. Then watched on YouTube the Sara Bareilles concert What’s Inside - Songs From Waitress (music she created for the broadway play). It really gave insight to songs that I’ve heard her sing but didn’t know the background.
    Cold for us in Houston this morning. 29degress wet weather so schools are closed for the day.
    Day 7: Sat, 2/5: 209.9 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine. Dinner at my daughter’s home. Requested to bring dessert so made lemon raspberry cupcakes for Fri & Sat night.

    Cold & wet weather kept me from exercising as much plus the volunteer teaching that overlaps with my exercise class. But those are just excuses … I can do much better with the meals, snacks and exercise. No choice on the meals Fri & Sat night but I did do well with portion control! I was the only one that didn’t go back for seconds.

    Day 8: Sun, 2/6: 211.0 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 blackberry liquor w/ club soda + 1 glass wine. Lunch at restaurant and then dinner at our friend’s home.
    Day 9: Mon, 2/7: 212.1 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. All the lemon raspberry cupcakes are now consumed! That was a yummy but terrible diet killer. Ate ~2-3 each day … Fri, Sat & Sun. Tried out a fun recipe Supreme Pizza (no crust) in a cast iron skillet. DH loved it too. I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger. https://lowcarbquick.com/deep-dish-pizza-casserole-keto
    Day 10: Tues, 2/8: 212.1 Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Accomplished a lot of to dos that have been on my list for a month … serviced car, submitted paperwork to HOA for window & siding replacement, dog to vet, etc etc.
    Day 11: Wed, 2/9: 212.4 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 12: Thurs, 2/10: 211.4 Walked 2.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lunch w/ DD. Purchased way too many cookies at the bakery and the grocery store! What was I thinking? Ate at least half a dozen.
    Day 13: Fri, 2/11: 211.9 Walked 2.9 + .8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Outside of volunteer teaching English … what did I accomplish? Definitely ate the rest of the cookies which was not helpful!
    Day 14: Sat, 2/12: 213.3 Strength Training 1 hr, No walk … lunch with DD, DIL and granddaughter, late afternoon drive with DH & our dog with the windows down on a beautiful day, happy hour glass of wine at 4pm and people watched. Too many snacks in the evening and not enough will power … total wine for the day 4 glasses.

    The I don't give a dxxx attitude has got to stop. No more buying bakery cookies and eating a dozen. No more gobbling down chips at lunch and then snacking on them after dinner too. Eating out almost every day is also killing my good intentions. Mentally I'm a mess when it comes to wanting to lose the weight and it shows on the scale. I've gained back everything I lost in 2021.
    Made my menu for this week. Plan to grocery shop today and put healthier items in the pantry. Also need to get back to more exercise ... slacking off on the walking because I'm driving into town more often to meet up with my daughter and daughter-in-law for lunch multiple days. No excuse ... I could still walk on these days.


    Day 15: Sun: 2/13: 213.0 No exercise but busy all day meal planning, groceries, making decorations for baby shower, reading, visiting, etc. ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 16: Mon: 2/14: 212.1 Walked 2.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Super Bowl and did fairly well food wise … since I brought the veggies & dips and boiled shrimp. Dinner grilled hamburger no bun.
    Day 17: Tues: 2/15: 213.5 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Wed: 2/16: 210.5 SICK (sinus infection tested negative for covid) all day Tuesday. No exercise. Lots of sleep. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    Day 19: Thurs: 2/17: 211.0 Walked .9 miles. Started my normal walk but then it started to rain. ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. Worked on my long to do list and led book club at a new restaurant we wanted to try out. Mexican food and it looks like it will be a popular place for our group in the future.
    Day 20: Fri: 2/18: 211.9 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not a great eating day. Frozen pizza for lunch and then a pot pie for dinner. I did snack on bell pepper strips and carrots with black bean hummus as a snack.
    Day 21: Sat: 2/19: 211.4 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My son & DIL drove in from Austin to show us their new puppy. So much energy and you have to watch them all the time. But it was a wonderful socialization & intro to another dog since ours is calm and loving. They got a doberman w/ floppy ears and we have a standard poodle. Explosion of toys everywhere!

    Day 22: Sun: 2/20: 212.1 Walked 2.9 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Completely lost my voice due to sinus infection. Took another covid PCR like test using CUE to ensure that DH and I do not have covid before leaving this morning to Baton Rouge. Did not want to expose everyone since there will be 3 sets of great grandparents, 3 sets of grandparents and lots of children under age 9 at the baptism.
    Day 23: Mon: 2/21: DNW No exercise. Travel day for granddaughter’s baptism in Baton Rouge. Lots of cookies. 1 Bloody Mary @ brunch; 2 wine @ dinner
    Day 24: Tues: 2/22: 213.8 Walked 2.8 miles, missed my Strength Training class since travel day. AF at book club in the evening but ate the entire meal and did not half it like I should. Still suffering from sinus infection. :(
    Day 25: Wed: 2/23: DNW Walked .6 miles. AF! Taught class with very little vocal … which really makes it difficult for the adult students to understand me in the Learn English Ministry. Today we get my daughter’s dogs (2 golden doodles) while she and her husband go on vacation to celebrate her 30th birthday. How/When did I get old enough to have kids in their 30s? No getting enough sleep. This past week with the sinuses has made it very difficult to lie down and sleep. I’m a walking zombie and very much out of my routine of meal planning and exercise.
    Day 26: Thurs: 2/24: 112.4 No exercise … cold outside and now I have 3 large dogs which is harder to walk by myself. EXCUSES! Worked a hard puzzle all day that has been on my dining room table since Christmas. I gave myself a goal to finish it this week. I should give myself a few other health related goals! AF!
    Day 27: Fri: 2/25: 213.4 Walked 1.2 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Bundled up … DH & I got out and walked the 3 dogs :) Teaching ESL and working my puzzle.

    Day 30: Mon, 2/28: 215.8 Walked 1.7, miles, AF. Made cookies Sunday and DH & I ate them ALL on Sunday and Monday. Self sabotage!

    Day 32: Wed, 3/2: 215.0 Walked 1.7 + 1 miles, 19800 steps, 3 wine celebrating Mardi Gras.
    Day 33: Thurs, 3/3: 214.1 Walked 3 + 3.2 miles, 11200 steps, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    For Lent I’m committed to walk 100 miles in March (usual target but I’ve not done it since October), 1 strength training class in person and 1-2 virtual classes per week, no alcohol, journal my food, water over diet cokes, and NO snickers at the grocery store!
    Day 34: Fri, 3/4: 215.2 Walked 1 + 1.3 miles, gardened, 1759 cal (-180 red), 77 net carbs, AF. Went to the grocery store twice today and did NOT buy a snickers. The desire was there but my promise to myself won out.

    Day 36: Sun, 3/6: 214.1 Walked 3 + 1.2 +.7 miles, 16500 steps, 1678 cal (170 green ), 110 net carbs, 1 wine. LSU baseball game in Minute Maid Stadium. Focusing this week on journaling everything and drinking more water … creating those good habits that lead to success. Oh grocery store and no snickers when I checked out! That is 3 trips to the grocery store in 2 days. I really had a conversation (battle) going in my head but I've passed on the snickers so far this week.
    Day 37: Mon, 3/7: 215.5 Walked 1.8 miles through River Oaks neighborhood on the Azalea Trail event with my daughter and her mother inlaw. 11700 steps. 1934 cal (-476 red), 113 net carbs, AF. Large BBQ dinner for my son, his wife & my sister … way too full. On top of that my daughter gave us lots of cake leftover from her crawfish boil … which I regret eating.
    Day 38: Tues, 3/8: 214.2 Walked 1.3 + .6 miles, 7000 steps, 1644 cal (-99 red), 130 net carbs, AF. I retired in Jan 2019. Spent the day on expenses in 2021 and a review compared to 2019 & 2020 and how we are doing in 2022 … as part of understanding our personal finances before DH pulls the plug and joins me in early retirement.
    Day 39: Wed, 3/9: 215.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 7400 steps, 2110 cal (-626 red), 133 net carbs, AF. BBQ for lunch & Mexican for dinner but I think the goldfish snacking really did me in.

What is with this bad habit of mine that I only acquired last Nov? The battle is real. :( Couldn’t sleep … another bad habit … waking up too early in the morning for no good reason.
    Day 42: Sat, 3/12: 213.2 @ 5:30 Walked 3.3 miles, 1717 cal (-27 red), 161 net carbs, AF.

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 57: Sun, 3/27: 213.7 Walked Bayou City Art Fest but didn’t count it + .8 miles, 1677 cal (-236 red), 40 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Sister visited for dinner so of course there was wine.
    Day 58: Mon, 3/28: 214.7 Walked 5.1 miles, 1921 cal (-21 red), 47 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Really long walk today, visiting with my son and steak night!
    Day 59: Tues, 3/29: 213.5 Walked 2.1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1510 cal (197 green), 65 net carbs, AF. Sore knee made it through my exercise class but skipped the lunges to baby the knee. Then walked to the library to drop off a book. Beautiful day. THEN rested the knee. Think I’ll take off tomorrow and not exercise since I really don’t want to push it … hobbling a little this evening.
    Day 60: Wed, 3/30: 213.4 Walked 1 mile taking it easy on my right knee which I twisted on the long walk Sunday, 1677 cal (-244 red), 99 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not bad choices eating out with friend at a new Italian restaurant. I kept it simple! One spinach manicotti and a side house salad with vinaigrette dressing. Avoided the basket of fresh bread which is hard but noticed that my friend also did not touch it. Executed planned dinner without a hitch as well.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 212.7 Walked .5 miles in park after lunch and before eye doctor appt instead of sitting in car! Strength Training 1 hr. 1593 cal (27 green), 56 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Not Keto but pushing for low net carbs between 50-100 daily and the weight is coming down gradually without all the extra sugar and carbs + drinking my water. Now if I can just keep it up. Adding daily vitamins back into my daily routine of better habits.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 213.6 No walk, but did garden … fertilizing the yard, weeding the veggie bed. Grocery shopped to make sure I have healthy options. However there is now Easter candy in the house. Yep I have 3 adult children that are married and I bought it for them. I give them the Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs usually … next weekend (not this weekend) we have an evening couples baby shower for my DD & her husband then Sunday a family crawfish boil. Bringing it to the crawfish boil … so I need to keep myself out of the bags this week! Tasted 2 Thursday. Now I need to move on! 1658 cal (-286 red), 81 net carbs, 3 glasses of wine.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2: 214.8 Walked 1 + 3 miles, 1700 cal (9 green), 86 net carbs (included 5 Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs ARGHHH), 2 glasses wine. I felt from all the sugar … hope I learned my lesson. Some of the lack of will power might be from starting my day at 3am because I couldn’t sleep due to the coughing. Got some different allergy meds to try out at the pharmacy.

I did really good on the eating front until my sister invited us over for dinner. Then it was a carb & wine fest with pasta, pork piccata, zipper cream peas and 4 glasses of wine. That meal I estimated to be over 1000 cal and over 100 net carbs alone!

    Weekend seems to haven got to many of us ... bumping up the scale. We can turn it back around and not let those pounds settle and establish permanent residency. GOOD LUCK!

    Beck's Monday Motivation: One thing we know about habits is that when something is part of your identity, it becomes easier and easier to do it. For example, you might have the identity, "I'm a regular exerciser," or "I'm someone who makes healthy decisions," or "I relieve stress in helpful ways." This week, think about what identities you have or ones you'd like to start putting into place!
