Just Give Me 10 Days - Round 189
Thanks for the thoughts and well wishes. I'll post how it goes.3
Hi, I’m Kathy.
57, F, 5’8”
15th round! Rebooting my lifestyle after several false starts. I need accountability to make sure it gets done.
Return to MFP SW (Dec 2021): 267
UGW for now: 195, then reevaluate
Goal for this round: less than I started with
2022 goals: move more (okay, move some), eat mindfully
6/6 230.0 New low thanks to a lovely bout with a stomach bug Sunday and Monday. Not the way to get there.
6/7 230.4 As expected, back up due to rehydration, etc.
6/8 230.2 I’m coming for you, 220s!! Headed to the gym this afternoon, meals for today are planned and logged. Welcome to all the new folks! I hope this group helps you as much as it has helped me.
6/9 230.2 Stress is not my friend. Several people on my work team are out for extended periods over the next couple of months, and it’s already getting to me. But I am proud that yesterday, instead of turning to food in the afternoon, I went to the gym. I felt much better after a solid workout and ate a reasonable dinner. Now let’s see if I can keep that mindset through the summer!
6/10 230.6 I’ll admit that’s not the number I was expecting to see this morning, but it’s a marathon, not a sprint. This weekend will be challenging with a local festival and a graduation party, but I’m up for the challenge! Have a great weekend, everyone!
6/13 231.0 Welp, that’s what happens when you go to a party Sunday afternoon and drink your calories. But I know this is temporary and hopefully will be gone in a day or two. I was hoping to reach 220s before this round ends but…we’ll see.
6/14 231.2 Don’t know where that came from. Ate well within calories, worked out, drank plenty of water. Not gonna lie, being on this plateau for a month is getting kind of old. If you have any suggestions for breaking it, bring them on.

Goal for this round: To weigh less than when the round started.
Previous days 6/6
6/12 Did not weigh this morning. Wow, I can’t believe I missed the equivalent of almost two rounds. Life has been super busy with work and home life. I’ve been thinking of you all though! I switched where my desk is for working from home and it resulted in less space for my personal laptop to be set up. So, I tend not to log in when I have down time now. I’ll be happy when our living space is finished with construction, so I have my own separate room for an office. That might be a few months though because the permits are just starting to be pulled.
Food has been pretty decent since I’ve been MIA. I’m currently in a cut and have lost about 2lbs since I started and I’m noticing the changes as well. I’m feeling less puffy and leaner. I’ve been sticking with my lifting program and have been able to incorporate a boxing class into one of my cardio days and either run or do a low impact cardio activity on the other cardio days.
6/13 Did not post.
6/14 120.4 Did 45 minutes on the stair master for my cardio today. Food was decent yesterday. We even got Cheesecake Factory take out, and I chose their Skinnylicious Turkey Burger that comes with a side salad. I was impressed with the flavor of the sandwich and the who meal was like 590ish calories I think. I probably ended up at maintenance, but I was content with that. Could I have eaten more? Yes, but at least I didn’t feel starving afterwards. On the work side of things, I’m anxiously waiting to hear about a job opportunity that I would be over the moon if I’m chosen! In the words of Tom Petty…. The waiting is the hardest part.

Challenge 188- 195 (+1.6)
6/6 196 (+1.0) Enough. I’ve enjoyed my time on vacation and have been really busy and off plan. I’m thankful for this community that inspires me to stay committed and moving forward and downward on this journey. Essentially, I’ve slid and as of today, am 8 pounds over my low weight. Vacation was great and I wouldn’t change anything, but today it’s time to refocus. I’ve thrown out all the food that isn’t on my eating plan and hiked yesterday with my sister to set our benchmark for the year. Last year, the first time I hiked this trail, I had to stop multiple times to catch my breath. Yesterday, we completed the 2.8 mile hike in 1:20. Last year it took almost 2 hours. I never felt the need to stop. It felt great and it was a beautiful day. We took progress photos and I can see it!! I don’t even want to be over 200 pounds again! Today, I honestly thought about not accurately recording my weight because I’m embarrassed, but who am I hurting and fooling?
6/7 194.4 (-.6) Not 100% on track but a much better day. Walked with the dogs, drank all my water and logged all my food. Just a little over on calories. Today, I’m scheduled for a mammogram and bone density test. Next? I really need to schedule my colonoscopy. Checking off the preventative care. Planning to swim today.
6/8 193.0 (-2.0) Swimming was great, although I did end up with a sunburn. They’ve closed the indoor pool by my house because of a lack of lifeguards. I need to do more research and figure out an indoor solution. Today, I’m back out at the large off-leash park with my dogs. Exercise four days in a row. My walk with the dogs is a leisure 2 and a half mile walk. It gets us out and moving, which is a really good thing. Still hungry and eating a few more calories than I should, but eating the right things and it’s showing.
6/9 192.2 (-2.8) Keeping busy is a key for me. It’s those times when I’m sitting watching television that the cravings seem to come, especially after dinner. My goal is back to not eating after 6pm. I’m wondering if my 4-5 weeks off of plan will mean my body resets enough to restart the bigger losses. I’d love to be in the 180’s by the end of this challenge. That means no indulgence meal this week.
6/10 193.2 (-1.8)
6/11 194.0 (-1.0) Dinner last night at an Italian restaurant with bread and pasta. I haven’t done that in the last year.
6/12 194.3 (-.7)
6/13 196.0 (+1.0) Four mile hike yesterday. Went wild over the weekend. Just hoping to end this round where I started or a bit lower. I’m in the middle of preparing for an art show in September and building a new business that is art related, but different than anything I’ve done before which is really stressful. I’m finding myself using food to deal with it. Just for today, I’m going to stay under calories. One day at a time.
6/14 194.6 (-.4) A much better day yesterday. I keep looking for the inspiration and dedication that got me this far. It comes in very short bursts and then disappears. It will come as long as I keep showing up.9
6/06 - 171.5 (+.1), Sore but motivated. Kicking off challenge celebrating yesterday’s success - actively worked out for 23 min. & happy to report I FINALLY reached my H2O daily goal (128oz.)!
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” - Maya Angelou
6/07 - 171.9 (+.4 - too much sodium), Had a terrible nights rest thanks to my PTSD (13 min. Deep/ 1 hr. 28 REM, 3.10 light, the rest of my 8.5hrs in bed registered as awake). My sleeping BPM shot up & down like a roller coaster all night from 43 to 126! It’s been almost 20 years & remains a difficult topic. I wish mental health wasn’t taboo. Nobodies pain should be wrapped in shame but it frequently gets dressed that way. I don’t want or need pity, a little bit of compassion or empathy goes a long way. Still sore on top of exhausted but I exceeded my H2O goal. Took a much needed rest & recovery day which included Hatha Yoga, light rowing, light strength training (gotta keep moving 1.5hrs. total), meditation & a nap.
“To live in the body of a survivor is to never be able to leave the scene of the crime. I cannot ignore the fact that I live here.” - Blythe Baird
6/08 - 172.2 (+.3 - Sodium again + TOTM), Another rough nights sleep but I will persevere! Not sure I like this daily weight in thing but sticking to the plan & seeing how it goes. Spent part of the afternoon hiking with the kids and had hoped to call my exercise. Then I met up with an old friend……all I needed was 1 delicious margarita to put me over and then there was dessert! I won’t even dig into the sodium. Tried to work it off in the evening with the rower (put in 50 min. of light effort) but was just too exhausted after all of the sunshine and poor sleep to put in more effort. Exceeded water & exercise goals even though my net calories were a disaster so I‘ll take those wins.
“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” - Winston S. Churchill
6/09 - 171.1 (-1.1) Slept better but still not great. Put in some extra effort to try and work off yesterday’s choices and feel good about what I was able to achieve. 1hr. Dancing with kids, 1.5hr. Rowing & water goal met again.
"Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” -Christian D. Larson
6/10 - 170.9 (-.2) Slept like a champ & seeing cardio improvement! Sqweee I’m so happy!!!!!Weather is nice so I took the day off & am headed to the lake.💧144 oz. (over), ⛑ +23 (247) - working towards, 👟 10,151 - met.
"When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves” -Buddha
6/11 - 170.7 (-.2) Found my zen kayaking/swimming at the lake all day with the kids. Just what the doctor ordered but whew sore before bed. Iced some & probably gonna take an R&R day but I’ll move somehow.💧132 oz. (over), ⛑ +36 (284) - working towards, 👟 7,623 (under but the paddling made up for it).
"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” - Oprah Winfrey
6/12 - 170.9 (+.2) - Another day kayaking/swimming at the lake with the kids.💧164 oz. (over), ⛑ +22 (261) - working towards, 👟 7,443 (under again but my arms did the work for me).
“Make joy your compass.” - Robyn Sharma
6/13 - 170.8 (-.1) - Was a sedentary day, weather ruined my plans & I had a lot of work to catch up on. Still fit in strength training + 40 minutes on the rower. Macro’s were darn near perfect woohoo! My personal goals were easy to achieve this round, considering how to push myself accordingly for the next one.💧160 oz. (over), ⛑ +20 (236) - working towards, 👟 4,632 (way under).
“If you have the courage to BEGIN, you have the courage to SUCCEED.” - David Viscott
6/14 - 170.4 (-.4) - Struggled with the motivation today but stuck with the plan. Did some strength training, 15 min. rowing, 25 min. Pilates, 20 min. Hatha Yoga & some dancing.💧160 oz. (over), ⛑ +10 (234), 👟 12,751 (met).

6/06 - 173.8 - 13,900 / 75. SO is home!! Ate at maintenance, lots of trail mix. Spent some time with the granddaughters is GD#2's 2nd birthday. She is Type 1D and we don't get to see her too much always outside and it was forecasted for lots of rain BUT the sun showed up and we had a wonderful day!! She wanted to catch me on the slide and held her hands out for me, so so sweet! Ate more, moved at my minimum goals, not worried at all.
6/07 - 173.7* - 16,900 / 116. SO invited the kids out for sushi, had a little more than usual as he went wild ordering everything. Was hard to log but most likely put me into another day of maintenance, again not worried. Did manage a second walk went a little slower then usual as my tummy was full.
6/08 -172.2* - 20,400 / 149. Went for an after dinner walk with SO, I can totally out walk him especially up hills. Feels great to breeze up the hill. Maybe he will work on his cardio more. I feel like its a hard subject to talk about, but maybe in time.
6/09 -170.7*- 14,400 / 102. SO wasn't feeling well so I walked home from work, found out this morning that's not as many steps as I usually do now. Bit of a whoosh after a couple days of more salt/carbs and higher calories.
6/10 - 170.8* - 17,400 / 117. SO went for a walk with me! It had been raining all day and there was a little clearing and YUP at the halfway point the sky opened up and it poured then it rained even more on us!! Haha... I don't melt but apparently he does. Ah we had fun. Will be out of town for a couple days no scale, no sure if I can get movement in, mother-in-law cooking and a meal or 2 out. This is how life works, just need to choose a smaller plate and light on the snacks. My 398.1km challenge is looking harder... Happy Friday to those who celebrate!!
6/11 - DNW* - 18,700 / 108.
6/12 - 172.3 - 7,800 / 40.
6/13 - 174.9* - 10,500 / 41. Travelled to see Father-in-Law who has Lewy Bodies which is a form of dementia. He is rapidly losing his mobility, was hard to see. Had dinner out a few times, way way less activity for me, a few adult beverages and not very 'regular'. Not worried about the scale as I know it will get back there, as I didn't go crazy high on calories.
6/14 - 174.5 - 10,400 / 65. SO is headed back to work so I will be able to get some extra walks in and reel my eating in. It's all about balance.
Good luck at the doc today @deepwoodslady3

6/6 / 160.4 / Worked from home with a Peloton ride at lunch. The rainy weather stopped me from taking my dog for her walk as she hates getting her paws wet, and rather than go out on my own I did a 10 minute strength workout instead.
6/7 / 162.2 / Last day in office before I start a string of corporate events including golf and field tours. I will get some form of exercise in tonight but I have lots to get organized.
6/8 / 162.2 / Round of golf today for work. Should get plenty of steps!
6/9 / 160.8
6/10 / DNW
6/11 / 163.2 / I was away on business Thursday and Friday with no down time. 5 hour drive to the location, a round of golf, supper and drinks, and then the next morning we did field tours and then hit the road again. I am at the lake for the weekend.
6/12 / 163.4 / Got my 10,000 steps yesterday and did a strength workout. My husband did ribs on the BBQ and there were a few cocktails so my calories were higher. Today is rainy so my movement has been low but I hope to make up for it later today in one way or another.
6/13 / 162.2 / Had a tough day at work but my husband and I had a lovely couples massage with my husband tonight so I feel a bit better.
6/14 / 160.8 / I was up before 5 tossing and turning so I decided to hop on the Peloton before work. Feels like a great start to the day!

6/6: - DNW - backpacking
6/7: 133.2 - I was super hungry yesterday after a very long hike with a 20 pound pack on. Even with the pack on, I was carrying 20 pounds less than when I started this journey 9 months ago. Imagine hauling around almost 40 pounds more day in, day out. I stayed within my calories, but once again did go high on sugar, carbs and fat.
6/8: 133.2 - Although I’m holding steady weight wise, I don’t feel like I am. Haven’t taken any waist or hip measurements, but my clothes feel just a *tad* snugger. Ate past my limit yesterday and I’m not sure I was actually hungry in the end.
6/9: 132.9 - I was busy making bread yesterday so my whole schedule was thrown off and didn’t do everything (eat, workout) until much later than normal.
6/10: 132.9 - normal workouts. Carb heavy eating.
6/11: 134.9 - Went out for Thai food last night - all the way from appetizers, drinks to dessert. Got my workout in despite the 95+ F degree weather.
6/12: 135.1 - This hot weather is not helping my cause, nor what I’m putting in my mouth,.
6/13: 134.0 - Better eating yesterday. Normal workouts and good sleep.
6/14: 133.4 - Had my normal Jazzercise workout and a 3 mile neighborhood walk yesterday. Then my daughter wanted to go for a walk after work, so off we went again as a family for another 2 miles. Not far, but nice to spend time together. I’ve been eating a lot of fresh plums from my neighbor’s tree that they gave us. That gets things *ahem* moving. I’ll be happy if I make it back to my starting weight for the round.
Total round weight loss/gain to date from EO last round: + 0.2 pounds8
@enlightenme3 I’ve noticed that the store seems to sell “dried plums” rather than “prunes” the last couple of years. I love them, whatever they’re called but, ohhh, the sugar/carbs!!!
@eaper64 LOL at the battery operated digital scale. I hardly ever get off and on again although I did one day last week when it said I weighed 103.5! I don’t know what got into it -trying to convince me I had lost ~17 pounds over night!5

We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19
What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

SW 120.0 (6/5)
6/6 121.0 GKI 11.9 Result of baby shower with pizza and pasta, essentially no protein. At least there was no cake!
6/7 120.5 GKI 9.7 Sewed off and on for 4 hours yesterday trying to avoid headache upon waking this morning. Still had headache but it’s almost gone. Arthritis stinks! Doc’s office called yesterday and my osteopenia has become osteoporosis. Going back on Fosamax.
6/8 118.5 GKI 8.3 OMAD yesterday “Just like the real thing” lasagna
6/9 118.0 GKI 6.3
6/10 118.0 GKI 9.8 OMAD at a new (to us) Japanese restaurant. Rice or noodles with everything, no low carb option. The General Tso’s chicken was not heavily breaded like most places. YAY! Delicious but could have been spicier - particularly after the fellow warned me twice about the hot spice!
6/11 118.5 GKI 5.7 (edited) Day 2 of helping get the school library in order.
6/12 118.5 GKI 7.0 OMAD was from a new to us BBQ place. It didn’t taste sweet except the taste of sauce I got when I dipped the tip of my fork. Properly seasoned BBQ doesn’t need sauce and this was good without it.
6/13 121.0 GKI unknown I don’t know what was wrong with my meter this morning. Late OMAD yesterday have no idea why the 2.5# gain. Smoked pork tenderloin, cauliflower, keto sour cream poundcake with berries and SF vanilla whipped cream.
6/14 119.0 GKI 5.9 Got a call from out of town cousin who was in town for a day so we went to The Strip to see them and sat with them while they had dinner. We had had Great Greek for OMAD at 4:30 rather than eating at 6:30 again.8

THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
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.

Open to suggestions from the rest of the group too, my workout play list is getting old.
LOL! Thanks so much @JbeanR0212!!

I am a 47 yo mother of two who has just let everything take priority over health. I need to make some adjustments.
Daily Goals: Water, PiYo, 10k Steps, Meditation, and Food Tracking
R188 = -0.7lbs
Initial SW: 196.5 GW: 165
Round 189 SW: 195.8
6/6 – 194.7 – Luckily I lost all the water weight I had retained due to the muscle soreness and I am back on track. It was nice to have a rest day and I am motivated for the week ahead!
6/7 – 194.6 – I think I forgot to post, but I did weigh in the morning
6/8 – 194.8 – Just hanging out here at this weight point for a bit…
6/9 – 194.0 – Popped down a little bit – hurray! I got in my exercise and meditation early this morning, because I’ll be working on our deck all day. Getting in that Vitamin D and fresh air :-D
6/10 – 194.1 – I totally wrecked my body by spending 8 hours staining our deck. I’ll be taking today and a rest day. Luckily I didn’t follow all that work with a burger and fries like I wants – here’s to forming better habits!
6/11 – 194.0 – My body feels better, so I did a Piyo workout. The sunburn is the only lingering annoyance. We were going to go hiking this weekend, but it’s raining so we’ve had to postpone.
6/12 – 193.2 - We’re buying a grill today and I can’t wait to cook some yummy, healthy foods on it!
6/13 – 192.5 – Whoooo, I’m having a bit of a slide down right now. I guess I should enjoy it while it’s happening. The rain put a crimp in my step count but at least I got Piyo in each day.
6/14 – 191.8 – And the slide continues. I’m not sure what the cause of this I, but I’ll take it! I’m eating all of my allotted calories for the day and only set at 1 lb loss per week. After 4 solid days of rain, today was gorgeous and I took a walk around the neighborhood – so gorgeous!
6/6 214.4 I am glad to see another weight loss. This morning I did gardening. I also prepped alot of fruits and veggies to eat throughout the week which is new but something I think will be helpful. Nervous about the upcoming two days because I am going to be working night shift which is going to be throwing things out of whack.
6/7 213.6 Very happy with another loss. Not sure what I am doing today really. I am working starting at 11pm so sleeping mostly today. The real challenge will be when it is past midnight and I would typically eat alot to keep myself awake during the shift. I can't really do that to stay on track. I do have some healthy things I am bringing.
6/8 I worked night shift and some other of the staff brought in chips and dip and doritos all which I love but I did not have any of it and I had my prepared food from home!
6/9 I worked night shift again. Hopefully not again for awhile. Again other people brought chips and things to share. But I held steady and brought my healthy packed food! And I was under my calorie for today.
6/10 212.2 Got back on the scale and was happy to see good number. I new were having pizza for dinner so was able to budget enough for dinner and still be under. Feeling surprisingly energized after work.
6/11 212.8 A little disappointed with the gain today. I really don't know where it is from I was under my calories.
6/12 213.4 Not sure what is going on... perhaps water weight.
6/13 211 Well finally back in the right direction! Hopefully staying this way from now on. I just discovered chocolate rice cakes and they are surprisingly good.
6/14 210.8! Very happy to see more progress. Went to Steak and Shake today and usually would have a melt and milkshake. I chose something a bit healthier but still tasty so was happy with that.

Thank you. Adding it to tonight’s list.

6/6 184.8 SW. I'm feeling better after a week back on MFP, eating well and exercising. Just adjusted my macros for higher protein and continuing with exercise routine. Walking, cycling and strength training are my go to's. Love reading everyone's comments and encouragements.
6/7 183.6 Always nice to see the scale go down, but remembering that there will be little ups and downs all week.....Busy day at work, and have a bike ride with dear husband after work to look forward to.
6/8- 183.6 It rained yesterday so the bike ride didn't happen, but I did 45 minutes of Jessica Smith workouts instead. Tried kickboxing--which was fun and harder than I expected. Does anyone else know Jessica Smith? If you are getting back into exercise, she has tons of free workouts on YouTube. The variety is great and it's easy to do in your own house.
6/9- 182.8 Okay, I'll take this! Just read a post yesterday that recommended "eating back your exercise calories" to make sure you don't lose too quickly. Does anyone have experience with that? In 2016, I lost 65 lbs in about 8 months--it was an
unsustainable program for me and I put it all back on and then some. The post said that loosing too quickly messes with your hunger and fullness hormones.....This kind of makes sense to me. I'm pretty active so on the days when I burn a lot from a long bike ride or a hike--I'll try eating more--but keeping it healthy--and see what happens.
6/10 - 182.8 I guess I forgot to log this yesterday?
6/11- 182.8 Same weight for three days---hoping for a decrease tomorrow. I felt a little discouraged yesterday--usually feel this at night when I am tired--so I just went to bed. Feeling more motivated this morning. This is when I have to lean in to consistency and keep doing the things--I start to get discouraged when the weight loss slows even though I know slow loss is normal and healthy. Any one else struggle with that?
6/12 182.3 Sigh, no decrease, but no increase either.....
6/13 - 183.4 (+.6) I think discouragement got me last night-- and there was chocolate chip cookie dough involved so an uptick on the scale this morning. NSV's are important on days like this. My clothes feel way better, I'm sleeping great, I can go down the stairs without leaning on the railing and my legs feel stronger. Even if I finish the 10 day challenge at this weight, I'm down 1.4 from the start of it--and creating better habits everyday.
6/14 184.8 Not feeling great this morning. Let my emotions get me last night and snacked freely after dinner. I'm back at the weight I started the challenge at. It's not likely to be any better tomorrow because I let last night carry into today and overate. Big piece of humble pie --I have to remember the scale isn't the only measure--I need to master the skill to get back on track when I have a rough day; don't let one rough day turn into two or three. I also got out of my routine last night and didn't get enough sleep which probably didn't help. Live and learn.
SW: 367.6 (6000 step goal, goal to lose 2 to 3 lbs. each challenge, go to bed by 11:30, no eating out more than once every 10-day challenge)
Day/Weight/Comment (previous day steps)
6/06 366.0 3853
6/07 367.2 6023 – Still working on getting back on track.
6/08 367.2 2816 – Welcome to all the new ones joining the challenge. There is a lot of support here and you will lose weight if you stick with weighing daily and checking in here no matter what. I am working in the office today so I will get my step goal in for sure. I must get cracking if I want to reach my goal for this round. Hard to get my MOJO back after vacation but I am getting there for sure. I brought fixings for salads Monday night. I may go again tonight to see if I can find some reasonable fruit in season besides bananas…lol
6/09 367.2 7508
6/10 367.2 3250
6/11 362.4 4375
6/12 362.4 7168 – Weekend good so far. I finally dropped some more pounds. I am getting ready to move so I have a lot to do to prepare for move. I will be moving in with my sister for the 1st ever and I am praying it works out. Reached my goal of 363 with 3 more days to go or two. So may squeeze in another pound.
6/13 359.6 4386 – Unbelievable! but I have been eating well under calories and not eating back movement calories. No real workouts yet. My knees have been acting up, but I have been walking more without cane and I have notice that I burn a lot more calories without cane assistance. Another lady at work told me she could see I was losing weight. This is always motivational for me to keep going. Especially since I have days without losing when I am eating right, and I know why that is.
6/14 359.6 6859 It is hot today but nice and cool in my apartment. Going to get in a nice, modified workout this evening. Under calories so far today…hope everyone is staying cool if in the heat wave states
@JbeanR0212 – Thanks for the inspirational quotes you put at the end of your daily posts.

Net change 2022 = SW 380.0 EW 367.6 (-12.4) Overall goal: 26-39 lbs.In 2003 Weighed over 600 lbs.My highest weight was 611 in 2003. Weight in 2004 before weight loss surgery was 580. Lowest weight after surgery was 302 in 2007. "I May Not Be Where I Want To Be, but I’m Not Where I Use To Be!"
In 2005 Weighed under 400 lbs.
In 2007 lowest weight after surgery 302lbs
I joined MFP on March 27, 2010, weighing in at 388 pounds. I was re-gaining weight and stumbled up on it while trying to get back on track. I was determined never to see 400+ on that scale again for me.
I have been morbidly obese all my life. I have a lifetime of mental and physical scars from obesity. In October 2004 I had Gastric Bypass surgery. WLS (Weight Loss Surgery) was the best gift that I could and did give to myself.
Between 2008 and 2010 I gradually gained back 80 of almost 300 pounds lost initially after weight loss surgery. I never reached my goal weight of 200 pounds. I still managed to keep off over 65 percent of the weight I lost which is very good and I am very proud of my accomplishments since 2004. It has literally changed my life for the better on all levels. I am here to lose re-gained weight and to reach my initial goal weight. I am in no hurry. I am taking this one day at a time and I am in it for the long haul.
Surgery did not fix the head. It is a good tool and the best gift I have given to myself, but it was not the easy way out as many people think. Once the honeymoon period is over after the WLS it is up to the patient to keep the weight off.
On August 29, 2011-- I was admitted to Intensive Outpatient Eating Disorder Program to learn how to manage my binge eating disorder effectively. The program is wonderful indeed and will be instrumental in me reaching all of my goals. The focus of this program was how to eat and not diet. Weight loss was not a goal of the program. I gained 20 pounds in program. But I had to get thru a lot of stuff and the time I was released I had stopped gaining. I was discharged from program on December 3, 2011.
My tool is still working for me today. My head is still the issue. SO, the struggle continues. I will never beat myself up again. I fight the fine fight faithfully and positively every day. Because that is what will get me to my goals one day. Even though it may not show up on the scale every day -- Every day I make progress one way or another just by showing up, waking up and trying.
Giving up is not an option for me. Perseverance, Patience, & Positive thinking will help me reach my goals…… and the same is true for you too!! We have the power within us.7

Round 189 ( my 121th). Thanks @QuiltingJaine.
I've enjoyed the Queen's platinum jubilee weekend, but that is now over, many of my clothes are beginning to feel a little uncomfortable, no way do I want to get into the sprial of buying the next size bigger clothes, I'd like to lose a couple of pounds this round, but any is a loss!!!!Achieved goal weigh of 125lb in summer 2016 by losing 66lb and then gradually gained between 7 and 11 since then & didn't want to gain any more, It's took me 75 rounds to achieve my under 130 target; back to maintenance again!! But then I crept up again, so need to get back under 130. A healthy life style has to be a permanent way of life.

End of round 188 – DNW (away for Queen's platinum jubilee celebrations)
6/6 141.6 – oh dear !! That is my highest weight since I started these rounds (round 69) ! As you can see I did celebrate Her Majesty's platinum jubilee and I did enjoy it. But now is the time to move on. Not only that I am starting to drop behind with my walking daily average goal; one of the reasons is my temp. seasonal part time job, but enough of the excuses, lets move on and make this round count!
6/7 140.4 - 9.2 miles walked, good food choices, a third of exercise calories eaten back.
6/8 139.6 – good to see the 130's again! 7 miles walked, no exercise calories eaten back, 11g carbs over.
6/9 139.4 – 11.07 miles walked. A third of exercise calories eaten back.
6/10 139,4 - only 2 miles walked yesterday child minding 3 DGC all 3 and under. Ate clean, but due to lack of structured exercise 149 calories over. Only 1 baby DGD today, so shall get out for a walk when she has her nap pushing her in pushchair.
6/11 140.4 – couldn't stop picking all day, shows on the scales. 5 miles walked, some “off roading” pushing little DGD, it wasn't planned – took the wrong path & when I realised it was too difficult to go back up the way I had come!!!! Was relieved to get back on the tarmac footpath!!
6/12 140.6 – 11 miles walked yesterday, chocolate monster got me; 253 calories over
6/13 139.8 -12.02 miles walked, good food choices – no chocolate!! 3/4rds exercise calories eaten back.
6/14 139.6 – 7.19 miles walked, all exercise calories eaten back. No chocolate !
6/15 139.2 – 7.03 miles walked, all exercise calories eaten back, 15 calories over. 2 pound loss this round, should be happy with that but in retrospect, I could have done better. Bring on the next round!
KEEP SAFE EVERYONE . Keep calm – Covid is still out there despite lifting of practically all restrictions, take care, remain vigilant we're still in this together!
