    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)

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

    04/01…...199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.4)….. Not such a great way to start.

    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.

    04/03.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.6}….. Lunch out with a friend yesterday. ½ for lunch and ½ for dinner. Bouncy-bounce.

    04/04.…..198.2…..(Trend Weight 199.5)….. Really no change in behaviors here (though there should be more!) I’m not sure why I go up and down but here it is today. Lowest weight since Mar 14. I’ll take it, shake it and see what I can do with it.

    04/05.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 199.4)….. My daughter brought donuts home last night which was a special treat from out of town. I just wish she had brought ONE. Today I am planning a big pot of soup for dinner and she is inviting her boyfriend to join us. I will keep portions under control and try to make up for yesterday a bit. Cooking is challenging right now. The stove is in the livingroom sitting on a cement board on the carpet. The kitchen is fully gutted down to studs so dishes are in my bedroom and anticipated food items we may need in the next month or two is upstairs on the landing. Pots & pans on the console style entertainment piece under the LR tv. The back & forth for every spoon or glass is giving me extra steps. It all adds up!

    04/06.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.5)….. Donuts showed up on the scale today. Thank Goodness for all the extra steps and miles yesterday or it could have been worse. Staying diligent today.

    04/07.…..DNW…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)….. Travel.

    04/08.…..204.0…..(Trend Weight 200.2)….. OMG! Heavy food day during travel and no movement to speak of. Gotta get this back down or I’ll be spending April hiding under the blankets!

    04/09.…..202.0…..(Trend Weight 200.4)….. Probably a water weight loss after the travel meals. It was too big of a jump when I got home so I knew something was up. Now…..to get it back under 200 then get some real fat loss progress going!

    04/10.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 200.3)….. Travel weight/water retention disappearing which is fair. Now down to the nitty gritty.

    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.

    Heaviest weight: 234
    January 1st: 213.2
    April 1st: 208.1
    Current weight: 208.7

    April weight lost so far: up. 6 pounds
    Weight lost this year: 4.5 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
    🌱Drink and log more water

    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!

    04/11.…..201.8…..(Trend Weight 200.5)….. Wow, first a big drop, then a big gain. I’m all over the place! I had a light breakfast, out to lunch with a friend for lasagna and garlic toast. I ate half and had the other half for dinner. It didn’t seem like too much food for one day but…..well……pasta!

    💐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 thus 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: 180 lbs

    April weight lost so far: ⬆️ +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 7: 180.5 lbs ⬆️
    April 8: 181 lbs ⬆️
    April 9: 185 lbs ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️ how can this be...oh yeah that binge eating yesterday.
    April 10: 184.5 lbs
    April 11: 184 lbs⬇️

    Hi all,
    48 year old female (5’7”)
    I’ve been very unmotivated and been off of here for a few weeks and feeling really lousy. Trying to get back on track…

    April 11: 195.4
    I’ve been distracted lately and sadly I am back up to my highest weight. I am really not happy about it with the first family dinners in two years coming up this weekend for Passover. I haven’t seen my folks all winter because they have been away and I'm sure my mom will make a comment. All I can do is try and be better.

    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌱
    🌱

    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.

    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)

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

    04/01…...199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.4)…..
    04/02.…..198.6…..(Trend Weight 199.6)…..

    04/08.…..204.0…..(Trend Weight 200.2)…..

    04/09.…..202.0…..(Trend Weight 200.4)….. Probably a water weight loss after the travel meals. It was too big of a jump when I got home so I knew something was up. Now…..to get it back under 200 then get some real fat loss progress going!

    04/10.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 200.3)….. Travel weight/water retention disappearing which is fair. Now down to the nitty gritty.

    04/11.…..201.8…..(Trend Weight 200.5)….. Wow, first a big drop, then a big gain. I’m all over the place! I had a light breakfast, out to lunch with a friend for lasagna and garlic toast. I ate half and had the other half for dinner. It didn’t seem like too much food for one day but…..well……pasta!

    04/12.…..200.8…..(Trend Weight 200.5)….. Travel today and Friday. I will try to make good choices but it’s never good. The lack of any activity while driving really hurts too. This will be a challenging week.

    I am ready for an awesome April!

    Heaviest weight: 234
    January 1st: 213.2
    April 1st: 208.1
    Current weight: 208.4

    April weight lost so far: up. 3pounds
    Weight lost this year: 4.8pounds 🥰

    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
    🌱Drink and log more water

    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. 🥰
