    @musicsax nice walk!

    @SheilaBoneham hugging you anyway because I know I could use one. I’m proud of you for sticking in no matter how discouraged you may get. It’s much easier to throw in the towel but you are a force to be reckoned with! 🤗

    Happy Sunday @deepwoodslady and @roz0810 way to kick this round off on a positive note!

    @SheilaBoneham i have lived through two elimination diets, my own and my teenager’s. My own was difficult but forcing a teen through it was almost worse. Luckily for me, they only needed to do it for 3 months.

    While I was on mine I lost 35lb. I needed to stay on it and keep a lot of foods, especially sugars, eliminated for 7 years. My weight stayed down while I stayed on it. My body healed enough to come off it just at the beginning of Covid, and I went back up 25lb. Sigh! I am with you here to reclaim the loss.

    @quiltingjaine Thank you. I am so happy to have found this group. The 10 day challenges and the daily check ins are a great match for my attention span and motivations.

    I used to do this challenge back in 2019 when I was on my weight loss journey. Pandemic hit and I gained it all back. I lost a bit in January this year but the number on the scale is creeping back up so I'm returning to myfitnesspal and the 10 day challenge.

    34 F 5'8'' - Vancouver, BC
    OSW 173 CW 165.4 GW 135

    Goals this round - weigh less at the end than I did at the start, get back into tracking food, workout/exercise at least every other day and drink water.

    ROUND 188
    SW: 179.2

    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.

    6/7: 178.8 my eating is still a mess, macro's still messed up, now i have seriously lagged in calories. it was too hot to sleep last night, so when i finally got to sleep i ended up waking up too late to take a walk. heat and humidity do not agree with me. i'd like to go out now to walk, but sometime tonight the county is spraying for mosquito's (not even sure if my area is being sprayed, just don't want to get caught in it if it is). every thing seems disappointing today, but i do have a beautiful cucumber in my garden that i will pick tomorrow morning!

    6/8: 178.2 that's not a true weight loss. previously, i have been weighing myself at all different times of the day, so my weight would vary. i think i have found the perfect time in the morning to get on that scale. hopefully, i can continue to hit the scale about the same time in the morning to get an accurate weight gain/loss. calories today were pretty good. macros still terrible. took a 1.5mi walk @3.0mph, so i'm feeling good that i got that in. cigarette cravings are still high, and a couple times today i replaced smoking with food.... not good.

    6/9: 178.2 way over in my fats, way under in my carbs, protein just about perfect. bacon is one of my weaknesses... i just couldn't resist those 2 extra pieces this morning. i had planned on just one. today was a hectic day inside the house. the AC needs replacing ($$$), and i was bouncing back in forth between chores to stay out of the tech's way. it's my off day from walking which i am glad of. surprisingly, it's not arthritis that's giving me trouble, it's pain in the arch of my foot (i believe it to be plantar fasciitis, but have never had it diagnosed). have it wrapped with ace bandage so pressure is applied. maybe tomorrow i will get out and purchase duct tape to wrap it in (believe it or not, it works!)

    6/10: 178 today... craving comfort food. went over in calories and waaay over in sodium. dreading my weight in tomorrow, but that's the price i pay.

    6/11: 178...no loss, no gain which i am feeling grateful of. again today i exceeded calories. i did get to go for a walk though, 1.5mi @3.0mph. i've got my ear buds charging (maybe i'll go out late tonight and dance around). tomorrow i am going to "the sons of italy" lodge to make my membership official. no, i'm not italian (although the way i eat some pasta, you might think so). I live in a gated community, and have only met people at least 20 yrs. older or at least 20 yrs younger than myself. i'm hoping i can meet some people at the lodge with similar likes as myself so i can get out and do more.

    6/12: 179... and there is (some?) of the weight i've been expecting to see. i am hoping to be more mindful of my sodium intake (it is a little difficult, as i have italian cured meats (sopressata and prosciutto which i must be sure NEVER to purchase again) in the fridge. the person i live with had said he wanted tuna mixed up for sandwiches. i made it for him, and now after drinking too much and not feeling well after eating the sandwich, he has decided he doesn't want to eat any more of it. sometimes i wonder if he's trying to sabotage me, knowing that i will not throw food away. i try eating it in moderation before it spoils, but obviously that hasn't worked out so well for me.

    6/13: 180.8 hopefully this is all that will show up! i mean honestly.... i didn't exceed my calories by THAT much, and my walks aren't figured into my calorie allowance. is it the salt? well, i made a decision to plan all those cured meats into my meals immediately, so i'm not dragging out the high sodium. making to to at least drink 8 cups water (hopefully to flush some out of my system). i did get to walk 2mi @3.0mph. i had the ear buds in, and i didn't want to stop. it was after 11pm, so figured i should before neighbors thought i was someone snooping around looking to commit a burglary.

    6/14: 178.2 well, originally the scale said 177.8 and i didn't believe it so went back and did it again. came up with the 178.2 i like that number, so i'm going to keep it and not go back again. (i lied, i went back again this time it said 177.6 stupid battery operated digital scale!) the HVAC people were here yesterday putting in the new AC from 9am to 7:30pm. no AC hot, humid, and miserable in the house all day, and they still have to come back today to finish. at least the AC is back on. i hope they don't have to turn it off again. calories and macros have been good the past couple days, and that cured meat is gone (there was only a total of 6oz), so sodium should start to be at a reasonable level. i have also been measuring my inches, just the 3 that originally show up in the MFP app., neck, waist, and hips. i do only 1 on a rotating basis so it takes 3 weeks of MFP before the area gets a new measurement. i have been doing this for 9 weeks. this past sunday was "hip" day which is the only measurement which has ever showed any loss. i went down 1 inch.

    6/15: 178.2 well, it looks like i picked the correct weight to list yesterday. i will be leaving this afternoon to visit with my father up north. i'm expecting a terrible diet, and weight gain. it's OK though, it's a small price to pay to visit your dad when they're in their mid 80's. i'm wishing you all the best of luck in the next week, and i will be back posting probably for the last couple days in round 190

    ROUND 190
    SW: ?

    6/24 176.6 back from vacation. was i stressing over gaining weight so i didn't eat as much, or was i not stress eating? kinda like that old tootsie pop commercial, "the world may never know".

    6/25 175.8 don't believe everything you see. it HAS to be my scale messing with me again because everyone knows i don't lose almost a pound overnight. someday i will invest in a better scale. until then....i'm enjoying the tiny fibs it tells me every once in a while.

    ROUND 191
    SW: 174.4


    6/26: 174.4 i will keep accepting these lower weights my scale is spitting out, just as i will accept the higher ones when it decides to tell the truth. maybe it's all my fault, and i should change the batteries? I forgot to mention my failures that have occurred since vacation. i am ashamed to say i have had a set back in my quitting smoking. i know that i will have to get that under control as well as my eating habits. i have also failed in my walking. i will need to get motivated and include that also. i have emotional stress in my life right now, which i see an end to in the future but that will take a few months. my weeks vacation visiting with family was nothing but smiles and laughter. driving home my failures began, and i realized i must do something besides diet and exercise for myself. i will continue to recognize my failures, but i will not beat myself up over them. a slow and steady path in the right direction is what i have chosen.


    Don’t beat yourself up too much @eaper64, change is hard. Today is a new day & we’re here for you.

    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.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!
