    Day 85…..08/02…..202.0…..(Trend weight 201.4) I weighed at hospital on different scale this morning. I’m okay post-surgery. They changed the surgery up a bit. Some for good reasons, some for not-so-good but they promise I will be able to breathe much better soon. No improvement yet and I really thought the better breathing would be immediate. Taking it easy and following Drs orders. Lots of changes in the meds.

    Day 86…..08/03…..201.6…..(Trend weight 201.4) The heart surgeon I met for the first time when I was in the OR. He said that he will not triple stent me, if it becomes 100% necessary, he will do a by-pass but he wasn’t in the mood to crack open any ribs that day. Yikes! He thought that two of the blockages could be managed with new meds for now but one was further blocked than the CTA test indicated. It was 76% blocked instead of 50%. So he stented that one, changed my cholesterol meds to 80 mg instead of 10 mg. Added the blood thinner recommended for those specifically with stents, added another heavy-duty blood pressure med to go with my other and gave me an emergency script for nitro just in case. He said my breathing on exertion should improve but it’s still rough breathing so far. Gotta heal up I guess. No exercise for a week and then light moderate like walking or bike. Breathing was worse yesterday instead of better but so far today, I feel a little improvement. Glad it’s over. Thanks again to all of you for the well wishes, personal IM’s and hugs. You are all the best friends a girl could ever ask for!

    I am Dawn. 61yrs old, 5'2"
    Ideal healthy body weight for my stats is 112. Many rounds away from that, and quite honestly I would be happy to get to 118 some day.
    I would really like to lose 7 pounds this round.

    Ideal healthy body weight for my stats is 112. Many rounds away from that, and quite honestly I would be happy to get to 118 some day.
    I would really like to lose 7 pounds this round.

    I lost 1.8 pounds the last 100, which was a departure from gaining in the last 4 of them.


    1st Week Goal Weight: 135.0
    1st Week Actual Weight: 138.8
    Excess calories burned (in the green): Shorter week, 1874, which only averages to 372.8 per day, less than usual

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 135.0 - seems ambitious.
    2nd Week Actual Weight: No idea, wonky scale on holiday with me read 48 pounds
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 5167 - very happy with that.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: N/A
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 138.3 - had Ribs this week
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 3976. Even after having a RED from Ribs, I still averaged 568 per day overall.

    4th Week Goal Weight: 136.1
    4th Week Actual Weight: 138.5
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 3568 - Not as much as usual, and it is reflected in my weight.

    5th Week Goal Weight: 135.0 until I hit it
    5th Week Actual Weight: 139.4 - lunch out contributed to this gain.
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4477 - 639.5 daily average

    6th Week Goal Weight: 135.0 until I hit it
    6th Week Actual Weight: 138.5
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 5751 - That averaged out to 821.5 per day - a few very heavy calorie burn days toiling in the yard.

    7th week Goal Weight: 135.0 until I hit it
    7th week actual Weight: 137.3 - Restaurant food behind me now, time to drop some lbs
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4247 - averaging out to 606.7 each day. Always happy to have 500+ in the Green overall

    8th Week Goal Weight: 135.0 until I hit it
    8th Week Actual Weight: 136.2 - This in a week where I topped out at 140.1
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 5091 which works out to a good average for me. A few very heavy calorie burn days working in my yard. 5091/7 = 727.3

    9th Week Goal Weight: 135 until I hit it
    9th Week Actual Weight: 137.7 - started the week with a 2 pound gain overnight, 138.4
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4330. Divided by 7 = an average of 618 per day, my goal is 500 per day average or I don't lose.

    10th week goal: 135 until I hit it
    10th week actual weight: 140.2 - Saturdays are usually my highest weigh of the week, but they are inching up each week.
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4974 = 704 average daily

    11th Week Goal Weight:
    11th Week Actual Weight: 139.5
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 5751 - lots of calorie burn this week! Averaged 821.5 per day

    12th Week Goal Weight:
    12th Week Actual Weight: 138.8
    Excess calories burned (in the green): Lots. 4101 - 585.8 average per day

    Day 83: Sun, 7/31: 139.2 - I am actually okay with that considering all of the late dinners that I had this past week.
    Day 84: Mon, 8/1: 140.2 - Kind of ignoring that one, burned off more than I ate yesterday, not panicking.
    Day 85: Tues, 8/2: 138.6 - Sort of what I felt like yesterday. I have to learn to roll with these fluctuations, although I would rather that they were fluctuating around 122-125. Maybe someday, I will keep working towards that.
    Day 86: Wed, 8/3: 139.0 - My friend that is coming Saturday for 8 days is a chef, I will need to keep my portions very small to not hit that 140 again. Wow, just realized that we are quickly running out of days for this 100! 3 pounds above my start weight.

    Weight remaining stubbornly in the 150's.
    NSV: My comfy summer shorts that were a major inspiration for getting started on this round of weight loss have gone from:
    "Hard to pull up and a nightmare to close" to
    "Ok to pull up but hard to close/uncomfortable" to now just
    "Easy to pull up and just a little snug, could wear these without discomfort."
    I'm joining in late. I started this diet and myfitnesspal on May 31st. I do track my weight everyday. I find that it works for me mainly because it avoids making a weekly weigh in so impactful and therefore stressful. I am trying to lose 33.6 pounds in total. At my height the extra 33 pounds was making me borderline obese with a BMI of 29.5.

    Hoping to do 1.5 pounds a week for now and then taper off to 1 pound and finally half a pound.

    100 Days of Accountability 5/10-8/17
    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: 216.4 (5/9)
    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
    * Onederland: 199
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195


    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: Tues, 5/10: 216.5 No exercise. 1532 cal (-180 red), 66 net carbs, 1.5 glass wine. DH & I tested positive on Tuesday 5/3 for COVID19. We quarantined per CDC for 5 days. I was asymptomatic except for a headache the first day and then tested negative for Covid on Monday 5/9 so I’ve been cleared. DH still has flu like symptoms and tested positive on Mon. We are using the CUE system which is a PCR like test that DH’s company provided employees.
    Day 2: Wed, 5/11: 216.4 Short walk .6 miles. 1725 cal (-346 red), 45 net carbs, 2 glass wine.
    Day 3: Thurs, 5/12: 216.4 No exercise. Played with my 4 month old granddaughter instead :) 1631 cal (-330 red), 107 net carbs, 2 glass wine. Lunch at Mexican restaurant with DIL where we split fajitas making salads and neither of us at the rice, beans or tortillas. But of course we ate chips! Happy that the scale did not blow up on that minor splurge.
    Day 4: Fri, 5/13: 218.4 Cancelled our trip. DH still has congestion and fatigue from his bout of COVID. My students from ESL class gave me a dozen beautiful roses :) No exercise. 1839 cal ( -507), 126 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Blew my focus on healthy eating … sabotaging myself with fried okra & cornbread for lunch and pizza at dinner! What am I thinking!
    Day 5: Sat, 5/14: 217.3 Walk 3.2 miles. Why can’t I get back into the groove. I know my knee hurts but that is not excuse for skipping my strength class! 1562 cal (-73 green), 93 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not bad given that DH & I picked up lunch and took it over to our daughter today to check on her … she had the pregnancy blues. Made up for it with salmon with spinach & white beans easy light dinner.

    1st Week Goal Weight: <215
    1st Week Actual Weight: 217.3
    1st Week Weight GAIN: .9
    Success this week is that I actually journaled every bite and started walking a little again.

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 6: Sun, 5/15: 217.5 Walked 3.7 miles, trimmed bushes. 1624 cal (59 green), 91 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 7: Mon, 5/16: 217.2 No exercise. Did not even wear my Apple Watch so no credit for steps either. 2518 cal (-1218 red), 164 net carbs, 2 glasses wine, 2 bourbon & diet cokes, THREE cupcakes! Did okay until DH asked for me to cook a dessert and I made something I liked too. Sent home most of the cupcakes with my kids after dinner. Thought about not completing my journal but then I didn’t want to get into bad habits so reporting in the mess of a day!
    Day 8: Tues, 5/17: 219.2
    Day 9: Wed, 5/18: 219.1 Strength Class 1 hr
    Day 10: Thurs, 5/19: 219.4 Walked 3.2 miles
    Day 11: Fri, 5/20: 219.2 Strength Class 1 hr
    Day 12: Sat, 5/21: 218.4 Walked .5 miles, Strength Class 1 hr

    2nd Week Goal Weight: <215
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 218.4
    1st Week Weight GAIN: 1.1
    Success with picking back up on my Strong & Fit classes again but my walking is still a struggle in the heat. My knee feels a little better and I think the lunges and squats are helping. However, I blew off journaling every bite because I was eating everything. That has to stop! Starting to journal again this morning.

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 13: Sun, 5/22: 218.4 Walked 2.6 to drop off library book instead of taking the car. 2041 cal (-397 red), 146 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Spent most of the day practicing both sketching and spanish.
    Day 14: Mon, 5/23: 219.5 Walk 1.25 miles. 1701 cal (-227 red), 132 net carbs, AF. Pancakes for breakfast and hamburger w/ tater tots for dinner blew up my carb count for the day.

    Day 20: Sun, 5/29: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 with my sister cleaning out mom’s house since she has an offer … mom will move into my smaller house next door if the sell goes through. Tons of stuff there as she loved shopping garage sales and it was my grandfathers before. The house has been in the family since 1954 and it grew organically with many additions and remodels over the years.
    Managing my mother’s expectations and the entire situation has been really challenging and I’ve totally derailed on my weight loss journey losing all focus on myself.

    Day 30: Wed, 6/8: 219.8 Walked .6 miles, Strength Training 1 hr. Heading in the wrong direction while eating cookies, Cheetos, and cornbread. Really need to clean up my eating habits and clear my mind of the junk that has me turning to comfort food. TODAY is a good day to start!
    Day 31: Thurs, 6/9: 219.0 Walked .8 miles. My normal 3 mile walk was cut short by a call from my sister. She had an allergic reaction to the dye in her annual CT scan. So I turned around hurried home and picked her up. She came to my house to rest in bed till noon then felt better but still had a headache. She is the only one of our family that still has the symptoms (fatigue, drainage down the throat, etc) from Covid well over a month ago. She is also the one in the poorest health having had stage 4 breast cancer 15 years ago. She is fine but went to bed still with the headache last night.
    Then after lunch my 37 weeks pregnant daughter calls. She lost her mucus plug with lots of blood, scared her, went home from work and called the doctor. So she too was resting with her feet up.
    DH & I babysat my granddaughter at their house while the parents had a movie & sushi date night :)
    More calls and setting up viewings of my mom’s home.
    Overall I’m not sure where the day went but I accomplished nothing on my todo list! I also didn’t snack!

    Day 34: Sun, 6/12: 220.1 Walked 4 miles. Wrong direction! Do NOT like seeing that number. When am I going to start focusing on me? Problem last few nights … Asleep before 10pm but I’m up and totally awake around 3-4 which is not healthy for me. So many things running through my mind that I have no control over … selling my mom’s house, my daughter is due any day, caring for my son’s dogs this weekend. At least I did get out and walk the dogs! Caught up the laundry, grocery shopped, menu planned. Today I’ll focus on me myself and I.
    Day 35: Mon, 6/13: 219.0 Walked 3 miles. Much of what I did today was again for the sell of my mom’s home following up with the buyer and their questions after the inspection on Friday. BUT I did walk, wash my hair, file my nails, color a mosaic mandala, read and cooked 3 new meals (breakfast lunch & dinner). Baby steps focusing on me.
    Day 36: Tues, 6/14: 219.2 Walked 3.2 miles. WAY TOO MUCH snacking through stress today. Attended morning spanish class, afternoon sketching class (I’m definitely the amateur!), evening spanish assessment for another M & W evening class with DH, many calls and scheduling for my mom’s house, lots of interruptions while in classes.
    ALSO my daughter started having minor contractions but no baby movement … they went to the hospital to make sure the baby was okay and were sent home to continue the early labor after finding the baby’s strong heartbeat and the monitor recognizing more contractions that my daughter was feeling. She thought they were 10 min apart but they were 6 min apart, 2cc dilated, 80% effaced. Exciting that their baby due July 1 with a scheduled inducement for June 23 will likely be earlier than expected. Good news because they are having what the doctor predicts as a big baby.
    Day 37: Wed, 6/15: 220.4 Strength Training Class 1 hr. I’m on watch for grand baby #2! DD has had what the hospital Monday evening called labor contractions (not Braxton Hicks) regularly about 6 min apart but not long enough or strong enough to keep her there. So yesterday she decided not to go into work and joined me in visiting my granddaughter and DIL. We helped out since my son is out of town this week working. My DIL asked if I could babysit so she could go grocery shopping and prep cook for her sister’s bachelorette party this weekend. It was a fun day. Did not stay into the evening like I originally planned since DD wanted to go home and rest. But all in all I ended up with 2 restaurant meals and snacks and the scale shows that I’m not on point and focused.
    Day 38: Thurs, 6/16: 220.4 Walked 3 miles.
    Day 39: Fri, 6/17: 220.2 Strength Training 1 hr

    Day 41: Sun, 6/19: 219.2 Walked 1.5 miles but my son’s dog laid down at least 2x because he is not use to walking. 6mo old very large Doberman. DH did the normal 3 mile walk with our dog.
    Day 42: Mon, 6/20: 219.7 Walked 1 mile with my son’s dog … this is very challenging. In addition, he is pulling up my plants in the back yard!!! Looks like my son will not be out of the hospital until mid week and has follow up with surgeon on Friday. Hopefully he is able to fly home this weekend and then we’ll need to return his dog to Austin.
    Day 43: Tues, 6/21: 219.6 Walked 1 mile with my son’s dog. Skipped all my daytime Monday leisure classes and book club that evening so that I could concentrate on the sell of mom's house. Also cancelled my plans to study Spanish on Mon & Wed evenings this summer. I had taken too much on with the new grandbaby, DH's retirement, Mom's sell of her home and her moving into my camp house. Renegotiated on the owner financing once again. Basically changed Mom's address online for everything except doctors and pharmacy which she will handle! Rural area and since I didn't have a mailbox for the camp house ... got that too taken care of.

    Day 44: Wed, 6/22: 219.8 Walked 1 mile with my son’s dog. Updated contracts for my mom’s house and spent the day with DD to reduce her anxiety and boredom as she waits for the baby! We did mani/pedi :) Ordered internet for the camp house to separate it from mom's. Renegotiated mowing contract to break it away from mowing the larger house's 2 lots and just mow my 1 lot. Transferred trash service to the camp house, too. Got the updated contracts and they are now executed!
    Day 45: Thurs, 6/23: 219.1 No exercise. A little less stressful. When on the phone with DD … DH came in with a can of pumpkin wanting me to bake pumpkin cookies. Of course this was just the distraction I needed! Not the calories LOL Mom is having a moving sale and I'm not sure what all she is getting rid of or keeping. She is being unreasonable about a number of things but then I can't be down there since I need to be here to help my daughter. My sister is heading down to help mom and plans to stay through the closing. Oh and I designed a budget and plan for setting up new Fidelity account for mom so that we could ensure she doesn't burn through the monthly income from the owner financing since she never saves and this was to be her savings for moving to Houston and getting an apartment or assisted living in a few years. Made sure she has more income now than earlier for monthly use so she can travel with a friend.
    Day 46: Fri, 6/24: 221.1 We have a beautiful little granddaughter! Margot 7l bs 15 oz 20.75 inches.
    Day 47: Sat, 6/25: 220.7 Walked 1 mile. DD had to stay in the hospital an extra day but baby and mom are doing well.

    Day 48: Sun, 6/26: DNW Walked 1 mile. Unusual schedule since I stayed with my daughter & her husband when she and the baby came home. Almost everything else went on hold.
    Day 49: Mon, 6/27: DNW My daughter is doing really well with her new baby. DH picked up our son and wife at the Austin airport and took their dog home. Whew that was a bundle of energy.
    Day 50: Tues, 6/28: DNW Skipped all my leisure classes and focused on my new granddaughter.
    Day 51: Wed, 6/29: 221 Stressful day … selling boat on consignment, reading contracts for mom’s sell by owner with owner financing, issues with setting up internet for our camp house where my mom is moving, etc etc. All I wanted was to be supporting my daughter and holding my granddaughter instead I was on the phone a ton of the time.
    Day 52: Thurs, 6/30: 221.5 Continued getting corrections on the contracts for the sell of mom’s house. Confirmed the buyer transferred the funds and got insurance before the closing. Also disconnected internet at the old house now that we have it working at the little house. I did though catch up with a friend shooting sporting clays for a couple of hours! Also DH and I got our medical insurance straight since we’ll no longer be covered by his old company starting July 1.
    Day 53: Fri, 7/1: 220.9 Walked 3+ miles. Completed mom’s closing but the wire transfer will not happen until Tuesday due to the title company closing for a 4 day weekend. Felt like I accomplished nothing except grocery shopping and investigating medical insurance plans. Need to find a new focus … oh yeah right … it should be me!
    Day 54: Sat, 7/2: 220.6 No exercise. The house closed and the wire transfer is pending in mom’s acct. The last time my mom received a large sum from inheritance she blew the whole $300k in less than a year. So with her permission I worked on mom’s financials and set up an investment acct for the house downpayment. This for a woman that didn’t have a savings account for the past 40 years until her husband passed away at the end of 2020 and then I set her up a savings acct with automatic deposits from her checking. Doing the same for the owner financing where the majority of the loan payments will go to her investment account, then some to savings and minor portion to checking.
    Afterward I spent the afternoon with my new granddaughter.
    Needless to say meals were not great either. Chili & Fritos for lunch then Grimaldi’s pizza and wine for dinner.

    Day 55: Sun, 7/3: 222.4 Walked 1 mile. All the kids were here for our family celebration with the new grandbabies. Huge spread of hamburgers & brats, tater tots & zucchini fries + key lime pie for our mid day meal. DH & I will have leftovers for days. I ate the hamburger as a salad without bun and the zucchini fries but obviously the 2 pieces of pie hit me hard … or was it the one Heineken 0.0? Not sure since I thought I had been pretty good. Called a neighbor and got a great family photo since we had all of us together! Now to get myself slimmer for the next family photo! I need to get out of the 220s.
    Day 56: Mon, 7/4: 220.0 Walked 3 miles, meal planning was good, the rest of the day I either read, caught up on my sleep or shopped the sales online (2 granddaughters to buy magneticme & simply magnetic sleeping outfits).
    Day 57: Tues, 7/5: 221.8 Gardening in the heat.
    Day 58: Wed, 7/6: DNW Strength Training class 1 hr. Helped DD after she had a rough night with the baby. Ensured DD got lunch, afternoon nap, a shower, picked up the house for her, helped her figure out her breast pump, and gave her lots of hugs and support. Mom & baby are doing fine. Then fed my sister dinner and wine to celebrate her return from a week+ of helping my mom with the move and unloaded her car of all my stuff she brought back.
    Day 59: Thurs, 7/7: 221.5 No exercise … my knee is bothering me. But I did go up and down the stairs a million times LOL. Unpacked and found a new home in my house for everything that came back from the camp that my mom doesn’t need so she had space to put her own stuff. Cooked a tasty Hello Fresh dinner of Bulgogi Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Carrots & Lemony Rice
    Day 60: Fri, 7/8: 221.6 Swam with my granddaughter. No real exercise for the day.
    Day 61: Sat, 7/9: 222.4 No exercise. Wonderful girls day hanging out with my DD, DIL, sister and the 2 grandbabies over lunch that I brought to DD’s house. Dinner out too. DH and I found a new to us Italian restaurant about 11 miles away which was very good. Ran into friends and sat with them in the bar area for dinner. Fun time and really great food. DH & I split toasted ravioli and Cappellini Crusted Red Snapper - red snapper filet wrapped with angel hair pasta topped with artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes, and green onions in bianco sauce. Served with a side of steamed vegetable medley. YUMMY!
    9th Week Goal Weight: <220
    9th Week Actual Weight: 222.4 TOTAL MISS! Refused to exercise daily as well as I’m not drinking much water nor journaling which combined leads to a gain.

    Day 62: Sun, 7/10: 222.8 No exercise. Too much food. I know what causes the gains but haven’t wrapped my head around turning things in another direction. Today I concentrate on me myself and I.
    Day 63: Mon, 7/11: 222.6 Walked 3 miles. Crazy heat 108 degrees.

    It's time to stop making excuses and procrastinating.
    Getting out of my own way and reminding myself of the reasons I want to lose weight and get in better shape:
    * Better health
    * More active & outgoing
    * I'll look better in pictures
    * Not always biggest person in room
    * Fun shopping for clothes
    * Example for my adult kids
    * Live longer & enjoy those years more

    Day 69: Sun, 7:17: 224.0 Walked 1 mile
    Day 70: Mon, 7/18: 223.2 Walked 3.8 miles, started journaling 1892 cal (-91 red), 130 net carbs
    Day 71: Tues, 7/19: 224.1 Walked 3.1 miles, 2420 cal (-771 red), 241 net carbs. The cookies did me in both homemade and store bought.

    Day 72: Wed, 7/20: Leaving on a 2000 mile roadtrip! Long Travel Days planned. 14 hrs over 2 days not including stops for gas, food, potty. Ax Throwing & Brewery at the end of the long drive to Topeka.
    Day 73: Thurs, 7/21: DNW Shorter Travel Day + conference in the afternoon. Walked to a little French place in Old Market area of Omaha and stayed for dinner at La Buvette Wine & Grocery.
    Day 74: Fri, 7/22: DNW Strategic Air Command Museum (SAC) & conference. Italian dinner at Nicola’s Italian Wine & Fare.
    Day 75: Sat, 7/23: DNW Long Travel Day. 10 hrs not including stops. Wine & broiled crab cakes for dinner.

    11th Week Goal Weight: <224
    11th Week Actual Weight:

    Day 76: Sun, 7/24: DNW Walking around Hot Springs. Grateful Head Pizza for lunch & leftovers for dinner.
    Day 77: Mon, 7/25: DNW Long Travel Day. 7 hrs not including stops. Fried Shrimp, Fish and Potatoes for lunch. Yummy but a fry fest.
    Day 78: Tues, 7/26: What’s the damage? 224.6 Wonderful trip but long days driving which meant lots of sitting on top of the heat 100+ which prevented us from really getting out to walk or hike. DH gained 5 lbs and I gained .5 lbs but then I was already up on the scale before we left.
    READY TO LOSE WEIGHT!
    Day 79: Wed, 7/27: 221.7 Functional Strength Training. 1534 cal (-10 red), 19 net carbs. So glad I passed on the Snickers at the grocery check out! Menu planned and followed through … on track for the first day back.
    Day 80: Thurs, 7/28: 220.6 No exercise. 1442 cal (-121 red), 53 net carbs. Shared the day with my DIL & DD and the 2 granddaughters. Lunch out for DIL’s birthday. I did okay … preplanned and journaled my day before leaving home in the morning. Tasty Ginger Salmon with roasted green beans at Papas Seafood. Had to add tracking the bread I ate but other than that it was a really good day. Fresh crusty warm French bread is hard to pass up!
    Day 81: Fri, 7/29: 221.3 Walked 3.2 miles. 1196 cal (623 green), 43 net carbs. Finished Lady Clays summer league (sporting clays) this evening and went to the celebration dinner. I was the only one that ordered a salad with grilled chicken & water … everyone else had pasta & wine. Did indulge in a piece of garlic bread … bread is my downfall.
    3 days in a row that I've planned and journaled in the morning my meals & snacks and then returned to make corrections. Getting into better habits. This is the one I'll be working on all next week too.
    Day 82: Sat, 7/30: 221.5 Walked 1.6 miles. 1573 cal (30 green), 67 net carbs. Dark Chocolate Ghirardelli Brownie threw me off course. DH wanted some after dinner last night so I whipped up a batch. Otherwise my meals were well planned. I even ordered just a grilled chicken breast with no fries when at a fast food place for lunch. Guessing that single decision helped when I splurged later in the evening.

    Coming back to where you started is not like never trying in the first place.
    Bouncing around and got down to 220 this week now I just need to make it stick and go lower!


    I’m joining globalhiker for a "commitment to myself" for the entire month of August. I can stick to good habits for a month and meet my target goals that I set for myself. Here is to us holding ourselves accountable!

    Day 83: Sun, 7/31: 221.7 Walked 3.1 + .4 miles. Two brownies oh my! But little dinner or rest since I babysat my 5 week old granddaughter to let my DD & her husband have an evening out. I’m glad I spent part of the day making chicken & sausage gumbo so both DH & I had the soup on hand for dinner even though we didn’t get to eat together. I ate it without rice.

    STARTING my personal challenge in August:
    🔹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; off/on Oct 2021-July 2022; recommit 8/1/2022)
    🔹Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)
    🔹Drink less alcohol (~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)

    Day 85: Tues, 8/2: 222.4 No exercise. 1256 cal (44 green), 112 net carbs. 64oz water, no vitamins, AF. Working on finding my way back to good habits!

    Bouncing around. Not too serious since I keep diving into the goldfish or pretzels as snacks instead of something that supports the wonderful healthy meals I've had recently!
    Yesterday took DD out with the granddaughter for a longer outing to test how things would go. DD needed the outing and she needed the support for the baby. We did pretty good until she got hungry and wouldn't take the bottle and there was no where for DD to sit to breastfeed ... so out to the car!

    If you get a chance check out the restaurant we ate at yesterday for lunch! YUM! One of DD's favorites that I've been wanting to try.
    Flower Child
    Lots of healthy unique options. I had the salmon with 2 sides: 1. heirloom tomato & watermelon (crispy chickpea, mint, honey goat cheese) 2. Cauliflower Risotto (lemon gremolata, toasted bread crumb)

    Ideal healthy body weight for my stats is 112. Many rounds away from that, and quite honestly I would be happy to get to 118 some day.
    I would really like to lose 7 pounds this round.

    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4330. Divided by 7 = an average of 618 per day, my goal is 500 per day average or I don't lose.

    10th week goal: 135 until I hit it
    10th week actual weight: 140.2 - Saturdays are usually my highest weigh of the week, but they are inching up each week.
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4974 = 704 average daily

    11th Week Goal Weight:
    11th Week Actual Weight: 139.5
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 5751 - lots of calorie burn this week! Averaged 821.5 per day

    12th Week Goal Weight:
    12th Week Actual Weight: 138.8
    Excess calories burned (in the green): Lots. 4101 - 585.8 average per day

    Day 83: Sun, 7/31: 139.2 - I am actually okay with that considering all of the late dinners that I had this past week.
    Day 84: Mon, 8/1: 140.2 - Kind of ignoring that one, burned off more than I ate yesterday, not panicking.
    Day 85: Tues, 8/2: 138.6 - Sort of what I felt like yesterday. I have to learn to roll with these fluctuations, although I would rather that they were fluctuating around 122-125. Maybe someday, I will keep working towards that.
    Day 86: Wed, 8/3: 139.0 - My friend that is coming Saturday for 8 days is a chef, I will need to keep my portions very small to not hit that 140 again. Wow, just realized that we are quickly running out of days for this 100! 3 pounds above my start weight.
    Day 87: Thurs, 8/4: 138.8 - Beginning to think about how I can be trying to lose weight while having a chef in my house for 8 days. He is a very old friend. I maybe will try to eat just a little bit of everything. Not sure if it is possible, but if I can lose one more pound before he arrives on Saturday that would be great.
    Day 88: Fri, 8/5:
    Day 89: Sat, 8/6:

    @deepwoodslady
    How are you feeling today?

    @dawnbgethealthy Feeling a little better every day as far as wounds and incisions go. When they put the camera and balloon and stent into the artery, they rip (off & on) the inside a bit causing a lot of bruising on the outside of the skin starting at wrist and going all the way up the arm, over the collar bone area (sore), across the chest to the heart. Just small intermittent bruises mostly but a few big ones. Those still hurt a bit but I am, overall, doing better. Breathing improved maybe 20%. I want more oxygen, of course, so I hope that improves even more.

    I am excited for you that an old friend is coming to visit. And a chef at that! Perhaps if he chooses to only cook one meal (like dinner), you can be careful earlier in the day in anticipation? A very light breakfast and a very small snack before a fantastic dinner? I try to do that when traveling to have "more room" for the dinner calories and if I stick to that, it usually helps. Of course, for me, "sticking to that" is the problem lol. Anyway, Enjoy your friend. It's not everyday we get that time together with them!

    Day 85…..08/02…..202.0…..(Trend weight 201.4)

    Day 86…..08/03…..201.6…..(Trend weight 201.4) The heart surgeon I met for the first time when I was in the OR. He said that he will not triple stent me, if it becomes 100% necessary, he will do a by-pass but he wasn’t in the mood to crack open any ribs that day. Yikes! He thought that two of the blockages could be managed with new meds for now but one was further blocked than the CTA test indicated. It was 76% blocked instead of 50%. So he stented that one, changed my cholesterol meds to 80 mg instead of 10 mg. Added the blood thinner recommended for those specifically with stents, added another heavy-duty blood pressure med to go with my other and gave me an emergency script for nitro just in case. He said my breathing on exertion should improve but it’s still rough breathing so far. Gotta heal up I guess. No exercise for a week and then light moderate like walking or bike. Breathing was worse yesterday instead of better but so far today, I feel a little improvement. Glad it’s over. Thanks again to all of you for the well wishes, personal IM’s and hugs. You are all the best friends a girl could ever ask for!

    Day 87…..08/04…..200.6…..(Trend weight 201.3) I am done with the 2 days of extreme light duty. I go back on all diabetes medications today and start 5 days of light duty that is a tiny bit less restrictive. Still no exercise allowed, bu I can now carefully (under 5 lbs) use my right hand. I took my son out to a local restaurant last night mainly because I felt sorry for myself. Just being honest. We even split a dessert. Food doesn’t fix anything, of course, it’s just a bandaid. Feeling much better today and I can’t wait to be able to take walks again and get on my stationary bike! I can’t wait to dance! Weight dropped but it was probably fluid loss from the water pill. I can see my ankle bones again this morning and my feet look normal. They always do when I get rid of the water. I can’t believe this round is almost over. I am proud of us all for showing up each and everyday. Commitment pays off in the long run!

    Hi all, I am jumping in late. But I will carry whatever I achieve here to the next 100 days' challenge. I have been facing the problem of weight cycling for a while now. Started at 87 kgs -> achieved 72 kgs, 72 kgs -> gained 81kgs, 81 kgs-> achieved 75 kgs, 75 kgs -> 80 kgs. Now I just want to get rid of this for good and never want to see these numbers again. I am currently @ 80kgs (177 lbs). The ultimate goal weight is 50 kgs (110 lbs). I am fairly active, I work out at least 4-5 days/week and get in 10k steps almost daily. It is my diet that puts me off many times. Hopefully not this time! I’m setting off a very ambitious goal of losing 2 lbs per week, but there are a lot of factors that I counted in, this is just to keep me going.


    Day 74: Fri, 7/22: 80 kgs (177 lbs) SW—> started my challenge here
    Day 81: Fri, 7/29: 174 lbs —> I got COVID positive and I’m having high fever (104), hence the drop in weight I guess. I obviously can’t workout for a few days now and lost my appetite due to loss of taste 😰… let’s see what happens to my challenge

    Day 82: Sat, 7/30: 173 lbs —> The fever is down now, I’m feeling much better but body is still very weak

    12th Week Goal Weight: 175 lbs
    12th Week Actual Weight: 173 lbs

    12th week insights: Birthday, covid--> did not put a lot of effort in my diet but saw a lot of fluctuations in weight. My fever is all down, I gained my taste back and I'm able to eat well. I'll try to include more protein and cut down on simple carbs and see how the next week turns out. Had nice long walk yday. I didn't count any calories burned though! Hope all of us have a productive new week🥳


    Day 83: Sun, 7/31: 174 lbs. Feeling much better. I won't go heavy on workouts as I still have very bad cough and cold. But I'm able to enjoy slow walking. So I'll keep doing it as long as I can. I will start working on my diet and make more conscious choices as it will also help me with recovery.
    Day 84: Mon, 8/1: 174.8 lbs
    Day 85: Tues, 8/2: 174.2 lbs
    Day 86: Wed, 8/3: 173 lbs --> started working out and kept my carb content low while continuing 20 hours fasting. Hope this continues
    Day 87: Thurs, 8/4: 173.8 lb --> had a cake yday at work. Gotta watch!

    100 Days of Accountability 5/10-8/17
    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: 216.4 (5/9)
    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
    * Onederland: 199
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195


    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: Tues, 5/10: 216.5 No exercise. 1532 cal (-180 red), 66 net carbs, 1.5 glass wine. DH & I tested positive on Tuesday 5/3 for COVID19. We quarantined per CDC for 5 days. I was asymptomatic except for a headache the first day and then tested negative for Covid on Monday 5/9 so I’ve been cleared. DH still has flu like symptoms and tested positive on Mon. We are using the CUE system which is a PCR like test that DH’s company provided employees.
    Day 2: Wed, 5/11: 216.4 Short walk .6 miles. 1725 cal (-346 red), 45 net carbs, 2 glass wine.
    Day 3: Thurs, 5/12: 216.4 No exercise. Played with my 4 month old granddaughter instead :) 1631 cal (-330 red), 107 net carbs, 2 glass wine. Lunch at Mexican restaurant with DIL where we split fajitas making salads and neither of us at the rice, beans or tortillas. But of course we ate chips! Happy that the scale did not blow up on that minor splurge.
    Day 4: Fri, 5/13: 218.4 Cancelled our trip. DH still has congestion and fatigue from his bout of COVID. My students from ESL class gave me a dozen beautiful roses :) No exercise. 1839 cal ( -507), 126 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Blew my focus on healthy eating … sabotaging myself with fried okra & cornbread for lunch and pizza at dinner! What am I thinking!
    Day 5: Sat, 5/14: 217.3 Walk 3.2 miles. Why can’t I get back into the groove. I know my knee hurts but that is not excuse for skipping my strength class! 1562 cal (-73 green), 93 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not bad given that DH & I picked up lunch and took it over to our daughter today to check on her … she had the pregnancy blues. Made up for it with salmon with spinach & white beans easy light dinner.

    1st Week Goal Weight: <215
    1st Week Actual Weight: 217.3

    Success this week is that I actually journaled every bite and started walking a little again.

    Day 7: Mon, 5/16: 217.2 No exercise. Did not even wear my Apple Watch so no credit for steps either. 2518 cal (-1218 red), 164 net carbs, 2 glasses wine, 2 bourbon & diet cokes, THREE cupcakes! Did okay until DH asked for me to cook a dessert and I made something I liked too. Sent home most of the cupcakes with my kids after dinner. Thought about not completing my journal but then I didn’t want to get into bad habits so reporting in the mess of a day!

    Success with picking back up on my Strong & Fit classes again but my walking is still a struggle in the heat. My knee feels a little better and I think the lunges and squats are helping. However, I blew off journaling every bite because I was eating everything. That has to stop! Starting to journal again this morning.

    Day 14: Mon, 5/23: 219.5 Walk 1.25 miles. 1701 cal (-227 red), 132 net carbs, AF. Pancakes for breakfast and hamburger w/ tater tots for dinner blew up my carb count for the day.

    Day 20: Sun, 5/29: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 with my sister cleaning out mom’s house since she has an offer … mom will move into my smaller house next door if the sell goes through. Tons of stuff there as she loved shopping garage sales and it was my grandfathers before. The house has been in the family since 1954 and it grew organically with many additions and remodels over the years.
    Managing my mother’s expectations and the entire situation has been really challenging and I’ve totally derailed on my weight loss journey losing all focus on myself.
    Day 21: Mon, 5/30: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣
    Day 22: Tues, 5/31: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣

    Day 28: Mon, 6/6: 219.1 Walked 3.2 miles
    Day 29: Tues, 6/7: DNW
    Day 30: Wed, 6/8: 219.8 Walked .6 miles, Strength Training 1 hr. Heading in the wrong direction while eating cookies, Cheetos, and cornbread. Really need to clean up my eating habits and clear my mind of the junk that has me turning to comfort food. TODAY is a good day to start!
    Day 31: Thurs, 6/9: 219.0 Walked .8 miles. My normal 3 mile walk was cut short by a call from my sister. She had an allergic reaction to the dye in her annual CT scan. So I turned around hurried home and picked her up. She came to my house to rest in bed till noon then felt better but still had a headache. She is the only one of our family that still has the symptoms (fatigue, drainage down the throat, etc) from Covid well over a month ago. She is also the one in the poorest health having had stage 4 breast cancer 15 years ago. She is fine but went to bed still with the headache last night.
    Then after lunch my 37 weeks pregnant daughter calls. She lost her mucus plug with lots of blood, scared her, went home from work and called the doctor. So she too was resting with her feet up.
    DH & I babysat my granddaughter at their house while the parents had a movie & sushi date night :)
    More calls and setting up viewings of my mom’s home.
    Overall I’m not sure where the day went but I accomplished nothing on my todo list! I also didn’t snack!
    Day 32: Fri, 6/10: DNW Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr.
    Day 33: Sat, 6/11: 219.0 No Exercise. Busy day but lazy and did not join my Strength Training class.

    Interesting Quote: “I feel like I’m constantly worrying about the next part of my life without realizing that I’m right in the middle of what I used to look forward to.”

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 34: Sun, 6/12: 220.1 Walked 4 miles. Wrong direction! Do NOT like seeing that number. When am I going to start focusing on me? Problem last few nights … Asleep before 10pm but I’m up and totally awake around 3-4 which is not healthy for me. So many things running through my mind that I have no control over … selling my mom’s house, my daughter is due any day, caring for my son’s dogs this weekend. At least I did get out and walk the dogs! Caught up the laundry, grocery shopped, menu planned. Today I’ll focus on me myself and I.
    Day 35: Mon, 6/13: 219.0 Walked 3 miles. Much of what I did today was again for the sell of my mom’s home following up with the buyer and their questions after the inspection on Friday. BUT I did walk, wash my hair, file my nails, color a mosaic mandala, read and cooked 3 new meals (breakfast lunch & dinner). Baby steps focusing on me.
    Day 36: Tues, 6/14: 219.2 Walked 3.2 miles. WAY TOO MUCH snacking through stress today. Attended morning spanish class, afternoon sketching class (I’m definitely the amateur!), evening spanish assessment for another M & W evening class with DH, many calls and scheduling for my mom’s house, lots of interruptions while in classes.
    ALSO my daughter started having minor contractions but no baby movement … they went to the hospital to make sure the baby was okay and were sent home to continue the early labor after finding the baby’s strong heartbeat and the monitor recognizing more contractions that my daughter was feeling. She thought they were 10 min apart but they were 6 min apart, 2cc dilated, 80% effaced. Exciting that their baby due July 1 with a scheduled inducement for June 23 will likely be earlier than expected. Good news because they are having what the doctor predicts as a big baby.
    Day 37: Wed, 6/15: 220.4 Strength Training Class 1 hr. I’m on watch for grand baby #2! DD has had what the hospital Monday evening called labor contractions (not Braxton Hicks) regularly about 6 min apart but not long enough or strong enough to keep her there. So yesterday she decided not to go into work and joined me in visiting my granddaughter and DIL. We helped out since my son is out of town this week working. My DIL asked if I could babysit so she could go grocery shopping and prep cook for her sister’s bachelorette party this weekend. It was a fun day. Did not stay into the evening like I originally planned since DD wanted to go home and rest. But all in all I ended up with 2 restaurant meals and snacks and the scale shows that I’m not on point and focused.
    Day 38: Thurs, 6/16: 220.4 Walked 3 miles.
    Day 39: Fri, 6/17: 220.2 Strength Training 1 hr
    Day 40: Sat, 6/18: 219.2 Walked 3+ .6 miles

    Day 41: Sun, 6/19: 219.2 Walked 1.5 miles but my son’s dog laid down at least 2x because he is not use to walking. 6mo old very large Doberman. DH did the normal 3 mile walk with our dog.
    Day 42: Mon, 6/20: 219.7 Walked 1 mile with my son’s dog … this is very challenging. In addition, he is pulling up my plants in the back yard!!! Looks like my son will not be out of the hospital until mid week and has follow up with surgeon on Friday. Hopefully he is able to fly home this weekend and then we’ll need to return his dog to Austin.
    Day 43: Tues, 6/21: 219.6 Walked 1 mile with my son’s dog. Skipped all my daytime Monday leisure classes and book club that evening so that I could concentrate on the sell of mom's house. Also cancelled my plans to study Spanish on Mon & Wed evenings this summer. I had taken too much on with the new grandbaby, DH's retirement, Mom's sell of her home and her moving into my camp house. Renegotiated on the owner financing once again. Basically changed Mom's address online for everything except doctors and pharmacy which she will handle! Rural area and since I didn't have a mailbox for the camp house ... got that too taken care of.

    Day 44: Wed, 6/22: 219.8 Walked 1 mile with my son’s dog. Updated contracts for my mom’s house and spent the day with DD to reduce her anxiety and boredom as she waits for the baby! We did mani/pedi :) Ordered internet for the camp house to separate it from mom's. Renegotiated mowing contract to break it away from mowing the larger house's 2 lots and just mow my 1 lot. Transferred trash service to the camp house, too. Got the updated contracts and they are now executed!
    Day 45: Thurs, 6/23: 219.1 No exercise. A little less stressful. When on the phone with DD … DH came in with a can of pumpkin wanting me to bake pumpkin cookies. Of course this was just the distraction I needed! Not the calories LOL Mom is having a moving sale and I'm not sure what all she is getting rid of or keeping. She is being unreasonable about a number of things but then I can't be down there since I need to be here to help my daughter. My sister is heading down to help mom and plans to stay through the closing. Oh and I designed a budget and plan for setting up new Fidelity account for mom so that we could ensure she doesn't burn through the monthly income from the owner financing since she never saves and this was to be her savings for moving to Houston and getting an apartment or assisted living in a few years. Made sure she has more income now than earlier for monthly use so she can travel with a friend.
    Day 46: Fri, 6/24: 221.1 We have a beautiful little granddaughter! Margot 7l bs 15 oz 20.75 inches.
    Day 47: Sat, 6/25: 220.7 Walked 1 mile. DD had to stay in the hospital an extra day but baby and mom are doing well.

    7th Week Goal Weight: 218

    Day 48: Sun, 6/26: DNW Walked 1 mile. Unusual schedule since I stayed with my daughter & her husband when she and the baby came home. Almost everything else went on hold.
    Day 49: Mon, 6/27: DNW My daughter is doing really well with her new baby. DH picked up our son and wife at the Austin airport and took their dog home. Whew that was a bundle of energy.
    Day 50: Tues, 6/28: DNW Skipped all my leisure classes and focused on my new granddaughter.
    Day 51: Wed, 6/29: 221 Stressful day … selling boat on consignment, reading contracts for mom’s sell by owner with owner financing, issues with setting up internet for our camp house where my mom is moving, etc etc. All I wanted was to be supporting my daughter and holding my granddaughter instead I was on the phone a ton of the time.
    Day 52: Thurs, 6/30: 221.5 Continued getting corrections on the contracts for the sell of mom’s house. Confirmed the buyer transferred the funds and got insurance before the closing. Also disconnected internet at the old house now that we have it working at the little house. I did though catch up with a friend shooting sporting clays for a couple of hours! Also DH and I got our medical insurance straight since we’ll no longer be covered by his old company starting July 1.
    Day 53: Fri, 7/1: 220.9 Walked 3+ miles. Completed mom’s closing but the wire transfer will not happen until Tuesday due to the title company closing for a 4 day weekend. Felt like I accomplished nothing except grocery shopping and investigating medical insurance plans. Need to find a new focus … oh yeah right … it should be me!
    Day 54: Sat, 7/2: 220.6 No exercise. The house closed and the wire transfer is pending in mom’s acct. The last time my mom received a large sum from inheritance she blew the whole $300k in less than a year. So with her permission I worked on mom’s financials and set up an investment acct for the house downpayment. This for a woman that didn’t have a savings account for the past 40 years until her husband passed away at the end of 2020 and then I set her up a savings acct with automatic deposits from her checking. Doing the same for the owner financing where the majority of the loan payments will go to her investment account, then some to savings and minor portion to checking.
    Afterward I spent the afternoon with my new granddaughter.
    Needless to say meals were not great either. Chili & Fritos for lunch then Grimaldi’s pizza and wine for dinner.
    8th Week Goal Weight: Not focused!
    8th Week Actual Weight:

    Day 55: Sun, 7/3: 222.4 Walked 1 mile. All the kids were here for our family celebration with the new grandbabies. Huge spread of hamburgers & brats, tater tots & zucchini fries + key lime pie for our mid day meal. DH & I will have leftovers for days. I ate the hamburger as a salad without bun and the zucchini fries but obviously the 2 pieces of pie hit me hard … or was it the one Heineken 0.0? Not sure since I thought I had been pretty good. Called a neighbor and got a great family photo since we had all of us together! Now to get myself slimmer for the next family photo! I need to get out of the 220s.
    Day 56: Mon, 7/4: 220.0 Walked 3 miles, meal planning was good, the rest of the day I either read, caught up on my sleep or shopped the sales online (2 granddaughters to buy magneticme & simply magnetic sleeping outfits).
    Day 57: Tues, 7/5: 221.8 Gardening in the heat.
    Day 58: Wed, 7/6: DNW Strength Training class 1 hr. Helped DD after she had a rough night with the baby. Ensured DD got lunch, afternoon nap, a shower, picked up the house for her, helped her figure out her breast pump, and gave her lots of hugs and support. Mom & baby are doing fine. Then fed my sister dinner and wine to celebrate her return from a week+ of helping my mom with the move and unloaded her car of all my stuff she brought back.
    Day 59: Thurs, 7/7: 221.5 No exercise … my knee is bothering me. But I did go up and down the stairs a million times LOL. Unpacked and found a new home in my house for everything that came back from the camp that my mom doesn’t need so she had space to put her own stuff. Cooked a tasty Hello Fresh dinner of Bulgogi Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Carrots & Lemony Rice
    Day 60: Fri, 7/8: 221.6 Swam with my granddaughter. No real exercise for the day.
    Day 61: Sat, 7/9: 222.4 No exercise. Wonderful girls day hanging out with my DD, DIL, sister and the 2 grandbabies over lunch that I brought to DD’s house. Dinner out too. DH and I found a new to us Italian restaurant about 11 miles away which was very good. Ran into friends and sat with them in the bar area for dinner. Fun time and really great food. DH & I split toasted ravioli and Cappellini Crusted Red Snapper - red snapper filet wrapped with angel hair pasta topped with artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes, and green onions in bianco sauce. Served with a side of steamed vegetable medley. YUMMY!
    9th Week Goal Weight: <220
    9th Week Actual Weight: 222.4 TOTAL MISS! Refused to exercise daily as well as I’m not drinking much water nor journaling which combined leads to a gain.

    Day 62: Sun, 7/10: 222.8 No exercise. Too much food. I know what causes the gains but haven’t wrapped my head around turning things in another direction. Today I concentrate on me myself and I.
    Day 63: Mon, 7/11: 222.6 Walked 3 miles. Crazy heat 108 degrees.
    Day 64: Tues, 7/12: DNW

    10th Week Goal Weight: <220
    10th Week Actual Weight: 223.6
    It's time to stop making excuses and procrastinating.
    Getting out of my own way and reminding myself of the reasons I want to lose weight and get in better shape:
    * Better health
    * More active & outgoing
    * I'll look better in pictures
    * Not always biggest person in room
    * Fun shopping for clothes
    * Example for my adult kids
    * Live longer & enjoy those years more

    Day 69: Sun, 7:17: 224.0 Walked 1 mile
    Day 70: Mon, 7/18: 223.2 Walked 3.8 miles, started journaling 1892 cal (-91 red), 130 net carbs
    Day 71: Tues, 7/19: 224.1 Walked 3.1 miles, 2420 cal (-771 red), 241 net carbs. The cookies did me in both homemade and store bought.

    Day 72: Wed, 7/20: Leaving on a 2000 mile roadtrip! Long Travel Days planned. 14 hrs over 2 days not including stops for gas, food, potty. Ax Throwing & Brewery at the end of the long drive to Topeka.
    Day 73: Thurs, 7/21: DNW Shorter Travel Day + conference in the afternoon. Walked to a little French place in Old Market area of Omaha and stayed for dinner at La Buvette Wine & Grocery.
    Day 74: Fri, 7/22: DNW Strategic Air Command Museum (SAC) & conference. Italian dinner at Nicola’s Italian Wine & Fare.
    Day 75: Sat, 7/23: DNW Long Travel Day. 10 hrs not including stops. Wine & broiled crab cakes for dinner.

    11th Week Goal Weight: <224
    11th Week Actual Weight:

    Day 76: Sun, 7/24: DNW Walking around Hot Springs. Grateful Head Pizza for lunch & leftovers for dinner.
    Day 77: Mon, 7/25: DNW Long Travel Day. 7 hrs not including stops. Fried Shrimp, Fish and Potatoes for lunch. Yummy but a fry fest.
    Day 78: Tues, 7/26: What’s the damage? 224.6 Wonderful trip but long days driving which meant lots of sitting on top of the heat 100+ which prevented us from really getting out to walk or hike. DH gained 5 lbs and I gained .5 lbs but then I was already up on the scale before we left.
    READY TO LOSE WEIGHT!
    Day 79: Wed, 7/27: 221.7 Functional Strength Training. 1534 cal (-10 red), 19 net carbs. So glad I passed on the Snickers at the grocery check out! Menu planned and followed through … on track for the first day back.
    Day 80: Thurs, 7/28: 220.6 No exercise. 1442 cal (-121 red), 53 net carbs. Shared the day with my DIL & DD and the 2 granddaughters. Lunch out for DIL’s birthday. I did okay … preplanned and journaled my day before leaving home in the morning. Tasty Ginger Salmon with roasted green beans at Papas Seafood. Had to add tracking the bread I ate but other than that it was a really good day. Fresh crusty warm French bread is hard to pass up!
    Day 81: Fri, 7/29: 221.3 Walked 3.2 miles. 1196 cal (623 green), 43 net carbs. Finished Lady Clays summer league (sporting clays) this evening and went to the celebration dinner. I was the only one that ordered a salad with grilled chicken & water … everyone else had pasta & wine. Did indulge in a piece of garlic bread … bread is my downfall.
    3 days in a row that I've planned and journaled in the morning my meals & snacks and then returned to make corrections. Getting into better habits. This is the one I'll be working on all next week too.
    Day 82: Sat, 7/30: 221.5 Walked 1.6 miles. 1573 cal (30 green), 67 net carbs. Dark Chocolate Ghirardelli Brownie threw me off course. DH wanted some after dinner last night so I whipped up a batch. Otherwise my meals were well planned. I even ordered just a grilled chicken breast with no fries when at a fast food place for lunch. Guessing that single decision helped when I splurged later in the evening.
    12th Week Goal Weight: 220
    12th Week Actual Weight: 221.5
    Coming back to where you started is not like never trying in the first place.
    Bouncing around and got down to 220 this week now I just need to make it stick and go lower!


    I’m joining globalhiker for a "commitment to myself" for the entire month of August. I can stick to good habits for a month and meet my target goals that I set for myself. Here is to us holding ourselves accountable!

    Day 83: Sun, 7/31: 221.7 Walked 3.1 + .4 miles. Two brownies oh my! But little dinner or rest since I babysat my 5 week old granddaughter to let my DD & her husband have an evening out. I’m glad I spent part of the day making chicken & sausage gumbo so both DH & I had the soup on hand for dinner even though we didn’t get to eat together. I ate it without rice.

    STARTING my personal challenge in August:
    🔹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; off/on Oct 2021-July 2022; recommit 8/1/2022)
    🔹Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)
    🔹Drink less alcohol (~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)


    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 84: Mon, 8/1: 223.1 Walked 3.5 miles. 2293 cal (-601 red), 160 net carbs. Meals well planned but then my sister invited us for dinner … the wine, steak with a double stuffed potato and coconut cream delight (like Allrecipes Mom’s Texas Delight) blew right past all my good intentions.
    Day 85: Tues, 8/2: 222.4 No exercise. 1256 cal (44 green), 112 net carbs. 64oz water, no vitamins, AF. Working on finding my way back to good habits!
    Day 86: Wed, 8/3: 223.4 Walked .4 miles … not a great start toward my 100 miles this month. Strength Training class 1 hr. 2108 cal (-512 red), 120 net carbs, 64oz water, vitamins, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 87: Thurs, 8/4: 222.4 Walk .6 mile. 2005 cal (-652 red), 147 net carbs, 64oz water, vitamins, 3 glasses wine.
    Day 88: Fri, 8/5: 222.4 Walked 3.5 miles. 1634 cal (94 green), 110 net carbs, 48 oz water, no vitamins, 1 beer at lunch. Passed on the open 1.5 bottles of wine available to me during dinner and drank sparkling water instead.
    Day 89: Sat, 8/6:

    Still in the 150's. I have a scale that measures fat % and at least that number is going down a little.
    I'm joining in late. I started this diet and myfitnesspal on May 31st. I do track my weight everyday. I find that it works for me mainly because it avoids making a weekly weigh in so impactful and therefore stressful. I am trying to lose 33.6 pounds in total. At my height the extra 33 pounds was making me borderline obese with a BMI of 29.5.

    Hoping to do 1.5 pounds a week for now and then taper off to 1 pound and finally half a pound.

    I hadn't realized that they go into your wrist, up your arm and across your collarbone to get to your heart! Wow.
    Glad that you got it done.

    Yes, I eat only berries during the day, dinners with my old friend coming from Victoria will be delicious I have no doubt, hard to eat just a little bit : - )
    I will still be going to work for 3 of those 8 days, 3 of them are my usual days off, and I took a couple off. He cooks all meals, I will no doubt cave to some of his wonderful breakfasts and lunches during the full days. It is a treat indeed.
