    💐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⬇️
    April 12: 184 lbs It is amazing it takes 1 say to gain 4lbs but not as fast to lose.

    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)…..
    04/03.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.6}…..
    04/04.…..198.2…..(Trend Weight 199.5)…..
    04/05.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 199.4)…..
    04/06.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.5)….. 04/07.…..DNW…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..
    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.

    04/13.…..202.8…..(Trend Weight 200.7)….. Travel always bites me in the *kitten*. What I hate most is that the trend weight is consistently over 200 and climbing. Oh, strength and resolve, where for art thou?

    I am ready for an awesome April!

    Heaviest weight: 234
    January 1st: 213.2
    April 1st: 208.1
    Current weight: 209.6

    April weight lost so far: up. 1.5 😕
    Weight lost this year: 3.6 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!

    April 12: 208.4… progress. 🥰

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

    April 14:
    April 15:

    Heaviest weight: 293

    🌱Track all my food
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal

    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 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.)

    Hi... I think I've rejoined the land of the living after being sick the past week. I didn't finish the March challenge because of that. I was heading the wrong way throughout March and hope to do better this month. Fingers crossed.

    Goals:
    ⚖️ weigh daily (starting tomorrow 4/4/22)
    * actually LOSE weight instead of gain it
    😅🚶‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♀️ get back out on my feet or on my bike for at least 20 minutes each day
    🥤 drink more water
    📚 me time, every day

    Highest Weight: Somewhere between 227-230... I don't know. I avoided the scale.
    Return to MFP after ~ 5-6 year absence (June 11, 2020) = 216.9
    Lowest weight since I started in June 2020 = 177.4 (9/19/21) - been climbing ever since...
    Final weight from last month's challenge (March 30, 2022) = 204.4
    Starting weight for this challenge (April 4, 2022) = 199.2 (Don't recommend this "sick" method to lose)

    So..... here goes nothing.....

    4/1 - didn't weigh, slept most of the day
    4/2 - didn't weigh, slept most of the day, but did walk the dog twice (had to, my daughter wasn't home .... it wasn't pretty)
    4/3 - didn't weigh - haven't tracked - everything (including work) starts again tomorrow.
    4/4 - ⚖️ 199.2 - back to work. Oh Yay. 🚶‍♀️ Decided to drive so knew I wasn't going to get my exercise in today. Wrong. Pulled out of my parking lot this morning, thought, "Wow, my truck is running kind of rough today." No sooner were the words formed in my head than... BAM! Check engine light came on. I was headed to the gas station. Finished that, drove home, grabbed my stuff and waved sadly at my bus as I was walking out of the gate. Sat at the stop for another half hour then, when I finally got downtown, hoofed it a little faster than my lungs were happy with to get to work on time. That meant walking back to the bus stop after work, then I walked the dog last night.
    4/5 - ⚖️ 201.2 (+2.0) - see what happens when you eat three "real" meals. Sigh. Truck is going to cost about $600 to fix. Better than I expected, more than I wanted. Anybody know anybody that removes curses? I'd like to talk to that person. :)
    4/6 - ⚖️ 200.8 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️ - called the shop and asked them to check the truck's ac, if they would. Said if they check it, they service it and that's going to cost me an additional $200. Le sigh. It's a black truck. This is Arizona. I haven't run the ac much yet this year, but I have run it and it doesn't blow as cool as it used to. I refuse to drive here without the ac, so I'm sucking it up and they're servicing the ac. BAH!
    4/7 - ⚖️ 200.8 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/8 - ⚖️ 200.8 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/9 - ⚖️ 201.2 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/10 - ⚖️ 202.0 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/11 - ⚖️ 202.4 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/12 - ⚖️ 202.2 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/13 - ⚖️ 201.0 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️- I've been absent, but I've been keeping track. The "save draft" feature saves me too. :)
    4/14 -
    4/15 - First night of Passover! חג פסח שמח📜
    4/16 -
    4/17 - Happy Easter! 🐰
    4/18 -

    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)…..
    04/03.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.6}…..
    04/04.…..198.2…..(Trend Weight 199.5)…..
    04/05.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 199.4)…..
    04/06.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.5)….. 04/07.…..DNW…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..
    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.

    04/13.…..202.8…..(Trend Weight 200.7)….. Travel always bites me in the *kitten*. What I hate most is that the trend weight is consistently over 200 and climbing. Oh, strength and resolve, where for art thou?

    04/14.…..203.8…..(Trend Weight 201.3)….. Feeling pudgy and squishy. Even my cat has begun to knead on my belly before laying down. Not a good sign! This is the day between two travels. I’ve got to make it count!

    04/15……xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..
    04/16……xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)…..

    💐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: ⬆️ +6 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 14: 186 lbs ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️ OMG how does this happen. I did my exercises no changes in my food. I gain 4 lbs less than 24 hours. This is depressing 😕

    I am ready for an awesome April!

    Heaviest weight: 234
    January 1st: 213.2
    April 1st: 208.1
    Current weight: 209.1

    April weight lost so far: up 1 pound
    Weight lost this year: down 4.1 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!

    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.❤️
