    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 March 31, 2022): 199.6
    Goal: 194.6 (Five lb Loss)

    04/26.…..202.2…..(Trend Weight 201.6)…… Better diet but low level movement. Very restricted with this middle of house new drywall and sanding going on. Travel today with my 77 year old friend several hours each way to get her to her neurology appointment for essential tremors. Lunch/Dinner will be out.

    04/27.…..204.4…..(Trend Weight 201.9)…… Travel yesterday with no shopping/walking. Very little natural calorie burn and Golden Corral for dinner. Yep, that’ll do it! Gotta really watch my P’s and Q’s today!

    04/28.…..204.2…..(Trend Weight 201.1)…… A small drop even though dinner was out with my son, his friend and friend’s mother. A nice simple meal that didn’t go over the top.


    04/29.…..202.4…..(Trend Weight 202.2)…… We are in the midst of the sanding of the kitchen and dining room renovation. Sand everywhere! There has been a lot more of carry-out dinners and local restaurant meals but I’ve been keeping the choices reasonable. To me, in this very small town, the local restaurant food is tiresome after 24 years here. It’s much easier to not over-indulge than when I go to bigger cities that have so many delicious and hard-to-resist choices. I love trying new things and that often gets me in trouble! Anyway, glad to see a nice drop today even after dinner carry-out (Mexican). I’m going to try to get more movement today but I dunno…. We’ll see how the schedule goes. My birthday is May 10th. I would love to give myself the present of being solidly under 200!

    April 1: DNW (Off to see my mother in law and sister in law again today. Snow here in Ontario - feels like we're back in Alberta with this weird weather.)
    April 2: DNW
    April 3: 169 (Weighed on a friend's scale so it may not be super accurate but it gives me an indicator at least that things are relatively on track. Off for a couple days of more touristy activities before a bit more family time and our flight home.)
    April 4: DNW (Greetings from Niagara Falls. We are in the touristy part of our trip - having a blast! Off to some wineries today.)
    April 5: DNW
    April 6: DNW
    April 7: 171.6 (Back home from holidays and overall I'm happy with the minimal weight gain. I still have lessons learned from this vacation that I'll look to grow from for next time. It was a great time... back to busy times at home now.)
    April 8: 172.8 (Busy first day back at home running errands with my husband. We also took our dog that we missed SOOO much for a nice long walk at a park. One day of work and then the weekend!)
    April 9: 173 (Busy getting my basement ready for my Mom's arrival. Also did two long walks yesterday and a Peloton ride. Loving the spring weather.)
    April 10: 172.4 (Up early to go to the landfill before my Mom moves in this afternoon. Going to stop for breakfast and walk our dog too.)
    April 11: 173.6 (Return to office in the morning. Feeling very out of practice. Wish me luck! Lunch is all packed and ready to go.)
    April 12: 172.4 (Taxing day between going to the office and helping work on clearing the last of the things from my Mom's house before the sale goes through. Possibly one more night of that... we shall see. I did fit in a 30 minute Peloton ride for myself.)
    April 13: 170.8 (Mentally tired but physically I enjoyed a fantastic hard ride on the Peloton. My husband has been on the road for work all week so I look forward to having him back tomorrow.)
    April 14: 168.8 (So excited for the long weekend. It's snowing here tonight. My husband got home and we ran errands so I didn't ride the bike today. Back on tomorrow!)
    April 15: 167.2 (Going to take it easy around the house for the most part today I think. My husband is making us a nice steak dinner tonight. I will get on the Peloton too.)
    April 16: 167.6 (Today's activities will include a Peloton ride, a haircut, a walk with my dog, and a date night with my husband.)
    April 17: 167.6 (Love that I've held in my normal BMI range for three days now. Today was a full day of activity - a hike, some strength work, and a Peloton ride. Really enjoyed the day!)
    April 18: 168.6 (Even if you think you can't.... you can! Wishing everyone a good week after Easter fun.)
    April 19: 167.6 (Super snowy day here today. We got into downtown and back for work and had a yummy pork chop dinner. Waiting for my turn on the bike.)
    April 20: 167.6 (My body seems to love this number!! :) The massive dump of snow we got yesterday is starting to melt away but I'll likely be out to shovel after dinner before I get on the bike.)
    April 21: 166.4 (Walked over 15,000 steps today due to converting normally sedentary meetings to walking meetings. Also had an appointment with my doctor for the first time since I lost weight and he was very happy about my progress.)
    April 22: 165 (Another massive snowfall this morning so I did some shoveling but it's starting to melt already. After work we have dinner at a friend's house but we're going to walk over. Hoping to fit in a Peloton ride yet today but time is tight.)
    April 23: 167.2 (60 minute Peloton ride done. The sun is out and we are going to take our dog for a walk before date night out which consists of dinner and a play.)
    April 24: 167 (Epic bike ride today in the mountains for just over 60 KM. Ate two larger meals before and after to fuel it. I am tired and will sleep well tonight I'm sure!)
    April 25: 166.8 (Nice weather for my lunch time walk again today. Sure does make it easier to get out! I have my taxes to do tonight.. how quickly I get done will determine if I also have time for a Peloton ride or not.)
    April 26: 166.4 (Taxes AND Peloton ride done last night. Back to office today and we have a meeting over lunch so my step count will be low until I get home unless I can sneak out for some movement during the day.)
    April 27: 166.4 (Busy day today. Salmon for supper and then an after dinner walk with my husband and dog. Loving the spring weather.)
    April 28: 166 (Managed to do a Peloton ride last night on top of the walk. Last day of work in the office for the week. Feels like a mini Friday!)
    April 29: 167.2 (Big day today as we go up to the lake after work to open up our trailer for the summer season. So excited!)

    April 1: Happy April Fools Day! 156.4 lbs
    April 2: 154 lbs. I think mainly water weight from higher sodium a couple of days ago. But I'll take it! Worked today but got out early enough I could get a 98 minute Elliptical workout in for 6 miles. My 14 hour days ended yesterday (Thank God!) It was a long 12 weeks. Now back to 10 hour work days and got out at 9 hours today. Don't know how to act, leaving work when the sun is still up!
    April 3: 152 lbs
    April 4: 150 lbs NEW LOW!!!
    April 5: 148.6 lbs ANOTHER NEW LOW!!! 3.6 lbs more till I'm not overweight!!! I think my whoosh is because I didn't lose anything in March.

    April 6: 147.6 lbs ANOTHER NEW LOW!!! :-) I did 2 sessions on Tues on my Elliptical, 335 mins total for 26.2 miles, A MARATHON!
    April 7: 147.6 lbs
    April 8: 150 lbs :-( Was hoping not to see 150's ever again. Did 143 minutes on my Elliptical today after work for 10 miles. I never exercise after work but it felt great! And I'm off the weekend!

    April 9: 152.2 lbs :-( Disappointing but I'm sure it's water weight. I ate the last of the corned beef last evening. It's so salty. Did 330 minutes on my Elliptical today for 22.51 miles total in a 280 minute session in the AM and a 50 minute session in the afternoon. Was going to do the last 3.69 miles needed for a marathon distance after dinner at my son's house but didn't then. Tomorrow's another day. :-l
    April 10: 151 lbs Did my Elliptical 272 minutes today for 17.54 miles.

    April 11: 155 lbs, I'm human. :-( Stayed with in my calories yesterday but dinner was junk. Today I ate Chinese for dinner so tomorrow will be worse.
    April 12: 156.4 lbs
    April 13: 155.6 lbs
    April 14: 151.6 lbs
    April 15: 151.8 lbs SOME of the water weight finally off. I hadn't had Chinese for over a year till 4/11/22 and realized after I ate it, it really wasn't that great tasting anyway. Hopefully I get myself back on the WAGON and get back on track. I want to lose the last 25 or so pounds. Elliptical today 183 minutes for 13.56 miles. At least I'm still doing at least 3 hours on my Elliptical on my days off.
    April 16: 151.8lbs

    April 17: 151.8 lbs Happy Easter!
    April 18: 154 lbs
    April 19: 154 lbs
    April 20: 151.8 lbs
    April 21: 152.8 lbs
    April 22: 152.8 lbs Earth Day (It was my Birthday First, before Earth Day!) Big One this year, 65!
    April 23: 153.8 lbs Traveling today to Oklahoma, to see for the first time, my newest granddaughter born in August. Probably no weigh ins till I get back and the next morning on 4/29.
    April 24: Travel
    April 25: Travel
    April 26: Travel
    April 27: Travel
    April 28: Travel Returned home late tonight.

    April 29: 156.6 lbs Not too bad considering I was traveling and we ate out most days. I even went to The Cheesecake Factory. I haven't been to one in 14 years, I think. So I had to indulge with dessert! Ghirardelli Chocolate cheesecake. Had some of the Braun's Oklahoma City local ice cream from local products and ate at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. Did a decent amount of walking with some sight seeing. I got to go into a AWAC. My son is a mechanic on them. I sat in the pilot's seat and walked out on the wing.

    Today back on the Elliptical 228 minutes for 14 miles. I have off Saturday and Sunday and back to work Monday. Now to catch up on what the rest of you have been up too!
    April 30:

    Each day is a fresh, new beginning. Enjoy your journey! (Love this Quote!)

    Heaviest weight: 234
    January 1st: 213.2
    April 1st: 208.1
    Current weight: 211.3

    April weight lost so far: up 3.2 pounds
    Weight lost this year: down 1.9 pounds 🥰

    Daily Goals:

    🌱Start my day with a 10 minute dog walk or 10 minute dance workout
    🌱Plan meals and log in advance
    🌱Log honestly and consistently
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌱Get 30 minutes of exercise or close my Apple Watch activity ring each day

    April 1: 208.1–Happy April Fools Day! I’m so excited my son is coming home to celebrate his 21st birthday! I’m making a taco bar with all the fixings including lots of veggies! 🍰 🌮
    Now it’s time for my outdoor adventure with Roxie! 🐕

    April 2: 209.2–Had a fun birthday party! Crazy to think my oldest is now 21. Wow does time fly!

    April 3: 210.4– the birthday treats are now over, so it’s back on track today. Back to basics, weighing food and pre logging.off to get my dance walk in this morning! We’ve got this! Happy Sunday!

    April 4: 209.1 Back on track! Feeling fabulous! The key to my success is my 10 minute morning exercise. 💃🏻 Happy Monday!

    April 5: 208.2 🐣 Back in the good groove! Trying out the “FlyLadyPlus” cleaning mobile app and pairing it with MFP. So far after a week I feel a little less overwhelmed with keeping up the house. The secret for most things in life is “progress not perfection” and short bursts of activity. It’s working! No… I’m not a paid spokesperson just a working mom trying to keep it together. 😆 Have a terrific Tuesday! Off to dance like no one is watching! 😂

    April 6: 207.4 Feeling off today. Gonna take it easy… it’s supposed to rain most of the day, so I won’t feel like I’m wasting a day off not being out in the yard. It’s the perfect day for catching up on laundry. Enjoy your Wednesday. ❤️

    April 7: 208.1 Feeling better today. 🙂. I’ll try to get in a Roxie walk in between rain clouds. ☔️ Happy Thursday! We took a nice long walk today, so Roxie will be sleeping most of the day. 🐾

    April 8: 207.4 Another rainy day, but the daffodils are popping up. ☔️🌼 It’s a good day to be at work… no guilt that I should be outside in the sunshine. Happy Friday!

    April 9: 207.5 Holding steady… feeling good. Happy Saturday! 🥰

    April 10: 208.1 was doing well until I ate 4 chocolate chip cookies before bed. I logged them disgustedly into my diary then decided to just move on. Can’t dwell on the past… only try to learn from it. Today is a new day and the sun is out!!☀️ Time to take Roxie for a walk. 🦮🌱

    April 11: 208.7…night snacking 😕Ah well, today is a new day. Just exercised so I’m starting off on the right foot. Happy Monday!

    April 12: 208.4… progress. 🥰

    April 13: 209.6… must… stop… stress… snacking. Hanging in there… by a thread

    April 14: 208.6 Happy Thursday! It’s a yard day today!!! 56 degrees and ☀️

    April 15: 209.1 Happy Good Friday & Happy Easter Weekend! Be kind to yourself.❤️
    April 16: 210.1
    April 17: 210.1 Happy Easter & Passover

    April 18: 209.4 focusing on Positivity, Persistence, Planning, Preparing, and Progress not Perfection this week. Embrace your Monday!
    April 19: 211.5
    April 20: 211.6 put together a Clicklist to pick up later today. Today is a reorganization day… getting ducks in a row 🦆 🦆 🦆 Planning meals in advance and at least one salad a day. Finally the snow is mostly gone after the spring snowstorm on Monday. The dog is ready for a walk, so I’ll chat with you all again soon. We’re in this together through the ups and downs. 🥰❤️❤️

    April 21: 210.2 let the slide 🛝 begin! Have a terrific Thursday… progress not perfection.

    April 22: Earth Day… 209.9.. in celebration of 🌎 Day, Roxie and I took a nice 18 minute walk and she met 2 new furry friends (doggos). Happy Earth Day friends!

    April 23: 210.4… started today with 14 minute dance/walk on UTube. Prelogged/ planned for the day… off to work! Happy Saturday!

    April 24: 210.8
    April 25: 211.1
    April 26: 211.4
    April 27: 211.4
    April 28: 211.6… the creep back stops in May
    April 29: 212.3…

    April 1: 208.1–Happy April Fools Day! I’m so excited my son is coming home to celebrate his 21st birthday! I’m making a taco bar with all the fixings including lots of veggies! 🍰 🌮
    Now it’s time for my outdoor adventure with Roxie! 🐕

    April 2: 209.2–Had a fun birthday party! Crazy to think my oldest is now 21. Wow does time fly!

    April 3: 210.4– the birthday treats are now over, so it’s back on track today. Back to basics, weighing food and pre logging.off to get my dance walk in this morning! We’ve got this! Happy Sunday!

    April 4: 209.1 Back on track! Feeling fabulous! The key to my success is my 10 minute morning exercise. 💃🏻 Happy Monday!

    April 5: 208.2 🐣 Back in the good groove! Trying out the “FlyLadyPlus” cleaning mobile app and pairing it with MFP. So far after a week I feel a little less overwhelmed with keeping up the house. The secret for most things in life is “progress not perfection” and short bursts of activity. It’s working! No… I’m not a paid spokesperson just a working mom trying to keep it together. 😆 Have a terrific Tuesday! Off to dance like no one is watching! 😂

    April 6: 207.4 Feeling off today. Gonna take it easy… it’s supposed to rain most of the day, so I won’t feel like I’m wasting a day off not being out in the yard. It’s the perfect day for catching up on laundry. Enjoy your Wednesday. ❤️

    April 7: 208.1 Feeling better today. 🙂. I’ll try to get in a Roxie walk in between rain clouds. ☔️ Happy Thursday! We took a nice long walk today, so Roxie will be sleeping most of the day. 🐾

    April 8: 207.4 Another rainy day, but the daffodils are popping up. ☔️🌼 It’s a good day to be at work… no guilt that I should be outside in the sunshine. Happy Friday!

    April 9: 207.5 Holding steady… feeling good. Happy Saturday! 🥰

    April 10: 208.1 was doing well until I ate 4 chocolate chip cookies before bed. I logged them disgustedly into my diary then decided to just move on. Can’t dwell on the past… only try to learn from it. Today is a new day and the sun is out!!☀️ Time to take Roxie for a walk. 🦮🌱

    April 11: 208.7…night snacking 😕Ah well, today is a new day. Just exercised so I’m starting off on the right foot. Happy Monday!

    April 12: 208.4… progress. 🥰

    April 13: 209.6… must… stop… stress… snacking. Hanging in there… by a thread

    April 14: 208.6 Happy Thursday! It’s a yard day today!!! 56 degrees and ☀️

    April 15: 209.1 Happy Good Friday & Happy Easter Weekend! Be kind to yourself.❤️
    April 16: 210.1
    April 17: 210.1 Happy Easter & Passover

    April 18: 209.4 focusing on Positivity, Persistence, Planning, Preparing, and Progress not Perfection this week. Embrace your Monday!
    April 19: 211.5
    April 20: 211.6 put together a Clicklist to pick up later today. Today is a reorganization day… getting ducks in a row 🦆 🦆 🦆 Planning meals in advance and at least one salad a day. Finally the snow is mostly gone after the spring snowstorm on Monday. The dog is ready for a walk, so I’ll chat with you all again soon. We’re in this together through the ups and downs. 🥰❤️❤️

    April 21: 210.2 let the slide 🛝 begin! Have a terrific Thursday… progress not perfection.

    April 22: Earth Day… 209.9.. in celebration of 🌎 Day, Roxie and I took a nice 18 minute walk and she met 2 new furry friends (doggos). Happy Earth Day friends!

    April 23: 210.4… started today with 14 minute dance/walk on UTube. Prelogged/ planned for the day… off to work! Happy Saturday!

    April 24: 210.8
    April 25: 211.1
    April 26: 211.4
    April 27: 211.4
    April 28: 211.6… the creep back stops in May
    April 29: 212.3…

    April 1: DNW (Off to see my mother in law and sister in law again today. Snow here in Ontario - feels like we're back in Alberta with this weird weather.)
    April 2: DNW
    April 3: 169 (Weighed on a friend's scale so it may not be super accurate but it gives me an indicator at least that things are relatively on track. Off for a couple days of more touristy activities before a bit more family time and our flight home.)
    April 4: DNW (Greetings from Niagara Falls. We are in the touristy part of our trip - having a blast! Off to some wineries today.)
    April 5: DNW
    April 6: DNW
    April 7: 171.6 (Back home from holidays and overall I'm happy with the minimal weight gain. I still have lessons learned from this vacation that I'll look to grow from for next time. It was a great time... back to busy times at home now.)
    April 8: 172.8 (Busy first day back at home running errands with my husband. We also took our dog that we missed SOOO much for a nice long walk at a park. One day of work and then the weekend!)
    April 9: 173 (Busy getting my basement ready for my Mom's arrival. Also did two long walks yesterday and a Peloton ride. Loving the spring weather.)
    April 10: 172.4 (Up early to go to the landfill before my Mom moves in this afternoon. Going to stop for breakfast and walk our dog too.)
    April 11: 173.6 (Return to office in the morning. Feeling very out of practice. Wish me luck! Lunch is all packed and ready to go.)
    April 12: 172.4 (Taxing day between going to the office and helping work on clearing the last of the things from my Mom's house before the sale goes through. Possibly one more night of that... we shall see. I did fit in a 30 minute Peloton ride for myself.)
    April 13: 170.8 (Mentally tired but physically I enjoyed a fantastic hard ride on the Peloton. My husband has been on the road for work all week so I look forward to having him back tomorrow.)
    April 14: 168.8 (So excited for the long weekend. It's snowing here tonight. My husband got home and we ran errands so I didn't ride the bike today. Back on tomorrow!)
    April 15: 167.2 (Going to take it easy around the house for the most part today I think. My husband is making us a nice steak dinner tonight. I will get on the Peloton too.)
    April 16: 167.6 (Today's activities will include a Peloton ride, a haircut, a walk with my dog, and a date night with my husband.)
    April 17: 167.6 (Love that I've held in my normal BMI range for three days now. Today was a full day of activity - a hike, some strength work, and a Peloton ride. Really enjoyed the day!)
    April 18: 168.6 (Even if you think you can't.... you can! Wishing everyone a good week after Easter fun.)
    April 19: 167.6 (Super snowy day here today. We got into downtown and back for work and had a yummy pork chop dinner. Waiting for my turn on the bike.)
    April 20: 167.6 (My body seems to love this number!! :) The massive dump of snow we got yesterday is starting to melt away but I'll likely be out to shovel after dinner before I get on the bike.)
    April 21: 166.4 (Walked over 15,000 steps today due to converting normally sedentary meetings to walking meetings. Also had an appointment with my doctor for the first time since I lost weight and he was very happy about my progress.)
    April 22: 165 (Another massive snowfall this morning so I did some shoveling but it's starting to melt already. After work we have dinner at a friend's house but we're going to walk over. Hoping to fit in a Peloton ride yet today but time is tight.)
    April 23: 167.2 (60 minute Peloton ride done. The sun is out and we are going to take our dog for a walk before date night out which consists of dinner and a play.)
    April 24: 167 (Epic bike ride today in the mountains for just over 60 KM. Ate two larger meals before and after to fuel it. I am tired and will sleep well tonight I'm sure!)
    April 25: 166.8 (Nice weather for my lunch time walk again today. Sure does make it easier to get out! I have my taxes to do tonight.. how quickly I get done will determine if I also have time for a Peloton ride or not.)
    April 26: 166.4 (Taxes AND Peloton ride done last night. Back to office today and we have a meeting over lunch so my step count will be low until I get home unless I can sneak out for some movement during the day.)
    April 27: 166.4 (Busy day today. Salmon for supper and then an after dinner walk with my husband and dog. Loving the spring weather.)
    April 28: 166 (Managed to do a Peloton ride last night on top of the walk. Last day of work in the office for the week. Feels like a mini Friday!)
    April 29: 167.2 (Big day today as we go up to the lake after work to open up our trailer for the summer season. So excited!)
    April 30: 165.4 (Happy for what I achieved this month. I am officially in my normal BMI category and weight loss from here is going to be much slower. I started April off with a vacation that was much more indulgent than my normal routine, but I am proud of how I handled myself. Thanks for another month of accountability and support.)

    04/26.…..202.2…..(Trend Weight 201.6)…… Better diet but low level movement. Very restricted with this middle of house new drywall and sanding going on. Travel today with my 77 year old friend several hours each way to get her to her neurology appointment for essential tremors. Lunch/Dinner will be out.

    04/27.…..204.4…..(Trend Weight 201.9)…… Travel yesterday with no shopping/walking. Very little natural calorie burn and Golden Corral for dinner. Yep, that’ll do it! Gotta really watch my P’s and Q’s today!

    04/28.…..204.2…..(Trend Weight 201.1)…… A small drop even though dinner was out with my son, his friend and friend’s mother. A nice simple meal that didn’t go over the top.


    04/29.…..202.4…..(Trend Weight 202.2)…… We are in the midst of the sanding of the kitchen and dining room renovation. Sand everywhere! There has been a lot more of carry-out dinners and local restaurant meals but I’ve been keeping the choices reasonable. To me, in this very small town, the local restaurant food is tiresome after 24 years here. It’s much easier to not over-indulge than when I go to bigger cities that have so many delicious and hard-to-resist choices. I love trying new things and that often gets me in trouble! Anyway, glad to see a nice drop today even after dinner carry-out (Mexican). I’m going to try to get more movement today but I dunno…. We’ll see how the schedule goes. My birthday is May 10th. I would love to give myself the present of being solidly under 200!

    04/30.…..203.2…..(Trend Weight 202.3)…… Very long travel today across the state. I won’t be home until late tonight. Low level movement and meals out = oh no!

    💐April Challenge💐

    My name is Mary. I participated in the monthly challenges last fall. Back home and would like to start again. A couple reasons why I like this challenge and group is because of self awareness and accountability. I find support in the groups updates and feedbacks. I do hope I able to join this group again.

    Heaviest weight: 204 lbs (I was probably heavier but did not have the courage to step on the scale.)
    Current weight: 182.5 lbs

    April weight lost so far: ⬆️ +2.5 lbs

    Daily Goals:
    🌷start my day with meditation 🧘‍♀️
    🌷start my morning 🌄 with water🚰 and stepping on the treadmill
    🌷reduce my carbs and replace with proteins
    🌷end my day practicing gratitude🌠
    Weight loss goal 5lbs 🖐

    April 1: 180 lbs
    April 6: 180 lbs
    Wednesday is my usual weigh in time. I have been mindful of my calories but exercising could be better. I ended up binge watching Ozark so my evening gratitude was lacking also. Will work on the exercising and Ozark is done.

    April 13: 182 lbs ⬇️⬇️ Well not back to my original weight but I will take it. It helps to have yardwork to add in for extra activity. Keep my nose to the grindstone. The month is halfway over.

    April 20: 183 lbs
    April 27: 182.5 ⬇️⬇️ Happy to see this but not sure about the why's. This is my usual weigh in day.
    April 28: 184 ⬆️
    April 29: 184 lbs
    April 30: 184 lbs
    Well not a productive month. Very unusual but will accept it and move on to May. Thanks everyone for your personal feedback.

    April 1: Happy April Fools Day! 156.4 lbs
    April 2: 154 lbs. I think mainly water weight from higher sodium a couple of days ago. But I'll take it! Worked today but got out early enough I could get a 98 minute Elliptical workout in for 6 miles. My 14 hour days ended yesterday (Thank God!) It was a long 12 weeks. Now back to 10 hour work days and got out at 9 hours today. Don't know how to act, leaving work when the sun is still up!
    April 3: 152 lbs
    April 4: 150 lbs NEW LOW!!!
    April 5: 148.6 lbs ANOTHER NEW LOW!!! 3.6 lbs more till I'm not overweight!!! I think my whoosh is because I didn't lose anything in March.

    April 6: 147.6 lbs ANOTHER NEW LOW!!! :-) I did 2 sessions on Tues on my Elliptical, 335 mins total for 26.2 miles, A MARATHON!
    April 7: 147.6 lbs
    April 8: 150 lbs :-( Was hoping not to see 150's ever again. Did 143 minutes on my Elliptical today after work for 10 miles. I never exercise after work but it felt great! And I'm off the weekend!

    April 9: 152.2 lbs :-( Disappointing but I'm sure it's water weight. I ate the last of the corned beef last evening. It's so salty. Did 330 minutes on my Elliptical today for 22.51 miles total in a 280 minute session in the AM and a 50 minute session in the afternoon. Was going to do the last 3.69 miles needed for a marathon distance after dinner at my son's house but didn't then. Tomorrow's another day. :-l
    April 10: 151 lbs Did my Elliptical 272 minutes today for 17.54 miles.

    April 11: 155 lbs, I'm human. :-( Stayed with in my calories yesterday but dinner was junk. Today I ate Chinese for dinner so tomorrow will be worse.
    April 12: 156.4 lbs
    April 13: 155.6 lbs
    April 14: 151.6 lbs
    April 15: 151.8 lbs SOME of the water weight finally off. I hadn't had Chinese for over a year till 4/11/22 and realized after I ate it, it really wasn't that great tasting anyway. Hopefully I get myself back on the WAGON and get back on track. I want to lose the last 25 or so pounds. Elliptical today 183 minutes for 13.56 miles. At least I'm still doing at least 3 hours on my Elliptical on my days off.
    April 16: 151.8lbs

    April 17: 151.8 lbs Happy Easter!
    April 18: 154 lbs
    April 19: 154 lbs
    April 20: 151.8 lbs
    April 21: 152.8 lbs
    April 22: 152.8 lbs Earth Day (It was my Birthday First, before Earth Day!) Big One this year, 65!
    April 23: 153.8 lbs Traveling today to Oklahoma, to see for the first time, my newest granddaughter born in August. Probably no weigh ins till I get back and the next morning on 4/29.
    April 24: Travel
    April 25: Travel
    April 26: Travel
    April 27: Travel
    April 28: Travel Returned home late tonight.

    April 29: 156.6 lbs Not too bad considering I was traveling and we ate out most days. I even went to The Cheesecake Factory. I haven't been to one in 14 years, I think. So I had to indulge with dessert! Ghirardelli Chocolate cheesecake. Had some of the Braun's Oklahoma City local ice cream from local products and ate at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. Did a decent amount of walking with some sight seeing. I got to go into a AWAC. My son is a mechanic on them. I sat in the pilot's seat and walked out on the wing.
    Today back on the Elliptical 228 minutes for 14 miles. I have off Saturday and Sunday and back to work Monday. Now to catch up on what the rest of you have been up too!

    April 30: 156.6 lbs. Elliptical 240 minutes for 16.36 miles and 1 hour 50 minutes mowing the grass (a rider).

    Each day is a fresh, new beginning. Enjoy your journey! (Love this Quote!)
