    R175 EW: 199.6
    R176 EW: 197.1
    R177 EW: 198.0
    R178 EW: 193.9
    R179 EW: 195.8
    R180 EW: 191.8
    R187 EW: 197.9

    27: 197.5 A little surprised by the loss. Our Keto lasagna wasn't done until 8, so I started fasting an hour and a half late last night. It was delicious though. Paired with garlic bread chaffles. Even my redneck foodie bf wants to keep using palm noodles instead of pasta!
    28: DNW
    29: 199.2 Late night for bf's birthday party. Drinks. Cake. Had a great time, but definitely sleep deprived. We have a graduation party to go to today, so one last day of moderate celebration. Early to bed tonight, and I may do an extended fast tomorrow.
    30: DNW
    31: 202.7 pre-TOM gains combined with the long weekend full of graduations and a birthday and emotional/hormonal eating yesterday while I binged Why Women Kill. I'm guessing about half the overall gain will be gone in the next few days when TOM starts. The rest is just a matter of getting back on track today after a holiday weekend. I don't like that scale is up so much, but no sense dwelling on it.
    1: 199.5 Hydrated, well rested, and ate much better yesterday.
    2: 199.6 Still waiting for TOM and the drop that usually comes with it. Had my maintenance allergy shot yesterday, so no exercise. Went over calories a bit, but not too bad. Macros were ok.
    3: 198.3
    4: 199.2 ♀️ Could I be lucky enough to break even this round? I think with just starting TOM, it's definitely possible.
    🤞🏼197.9 tomorrow🤞🏼
    5:199.9 ♀️

    Total gain 2 pounds

    There's no such thing as failure; only feedback.

    05/26 - 174.8. Down 37.2 lbs

    Day/Weight/Steps/Active Minutes/Comment

    05/27 - 174.2 - 17,300 steps and 111 active minutes. Another push myself for my after work walk. Pretty sure it’s all the rain happening. Have the day off with no real plans. Happy Friday all.
    05/28 - 173.3* - 16,000 / 61. A day of shopping and some new clothes and maybe a purse. Then went home and tried on every pair of my pants in my closet. Tossed the ugly, hate these, and too bigs (donated), kept a couple of the too bigs but really nice, spent some $’s on. (I know you’re suppose to get rid of those too, but in time…) Have about 6 that are still too small and lots that I’m fitting back into nicely. Need to do this with the rest of my closet too. No structured walks but lots of steps lower activity but that’s ok. Going to a kids football game in the rain hope I good structured walk happens. Scale number is the result of a whoosh …TMI
    05/29 - 172.2* - 16,000 / 90. Watching 7- 8 year olds play football is amazingly great! Spent the day with my Mom out for lunch and split a beer. Went for a short no push walk when I got home. Great day! Happy Sunday.
    05/30 - 173.9 - 15,500 / 50. Went for Chinese against my will. Not as active of a day but I was busy. Ate more then I wanted to BUT ate less then I use to. Not worried I know this number will drop soon.
    05/31 - 172.7* - 19,300 / 134. All things aligned.
    06/01 - 171.8* - 18,700 / 132. Happy June!! Hopefully we get some sun now.
    06/02 - 171.1* - 21,200 / 139. Added more fiber, working on getting more 'regular' ... My June monthly watch challenge is to walk 398.1 km. I told my son and he asked if I'll have to quit my job, lol. I think I can hit that no problem but its when it asks me do keep doing more and more!! UTMom81 I love fly fishing, but it's been too long and I'm also terrible at it. Just like being out there.
    06/03 - 170.7 - 21,900 / 147. Not sure if this is a fiber issue or if I should up my calories. SO might be home for Saturday and that always means more calories. Watched one of my sons play ball, oh do I miss playing. Maybe they will let me practice with them, would have to dig out my glove. Wishing everyone a happy Friday!
    06/04 - 170.1* - 19,900 / 115. Some of this loss is added fibre and getting more regular, but if I’m going to get my 2 walks in I think I’m going to up my calories to 1700 minimum. SO arrives late tonight so it’ll go up anyway. It’s a ‘push pull’ feeling trying to find the right balance.

    06/05 - 170.8* - 32,000 / 218. Did a 20km walk felt great upped calories. SO got home just after dinner, great to have him home.

    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    ROUND 188
    starting a little late: weighing every day will be difficult, i usually only weigh in on sunday. i've been bouncing back and forth with my weight, a tiny gain, a tiny loss. think i will add a little exercise to the dieting plan.

    👍👍This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE👍👍

    SW: 179.2
    5/29: 179.2 30 minute walk @2.5mph 1691 calories
    5/30: 178.6 1193 calories
    5/31: 176.6 30 minute walk @ 2.5 mph 1254 calories
    6/1 : 178 1100 calories (and there is the bounce. not letting it bother me, 'cause my normal weigh in is sunday. when i report my weight on sunday i'll still have lost some). not sure if i'll be walking for a little while. i have arthritis in the hips. the walk yesterday i wasn't sure if i would make it home. healthy weight must come with a healthy body.

    6/2 : 178, 1538 calories. going to have to do better. i caught myself "boredom" eating. i will be sure to set higher standards of myself tomorrow.

    6/3 : 178.2, 1224 calories not a bad day. disappointed with my sandwiches. i used to make them with joseph's flax, oat bran, wheat lavish bread. the grocery store didn't have that when i went shopping. decided to buy pepperidge farm very thin whole wheat. it'll be excellent for toast, but for sandwich? naaah. making a mental note to buy extra joseph's when they're back... i'll freeze it.

    6/4 : 178.6 1609 calories. was my calorie intake poor choices? i don't think so. it's disappointing to see my weight continue to go up.... but there's other things to consider. i haven't been able to walk for several days, and my quitting smoking has been going very well. i am still using the step 2 patch, but sometimes i forget to replace it, and when stress triggers the "i NEED a cigarette" i'm able to fight past the urge. maybe i'm seeing things right/wrong. i've consumed 350 less calories this week than needed to "maintain" without the exercise, so my weight is probably right where it should be.

    6/5 : 180.2 1037 calories. hmmmm. not really understanding how the app keeps telling me i'll weigh less in 5 weeks, but my weight keeps going up. it's proving to be quite the disappointment.
    ROUND 189

    SW: 180.2

    6/6: 179, my eating was a mess today, macro's messed up, calories exceeded. i did get a good 2mi. walk in @3.0mph. i have also graduated to step 3 with the nicotine patch, that was a difficult experience also (yay me.... i didn't give in!) i'd like to go for another walk tonight, but worry about the arthritis. maybe a nice slow stroll around the community.
