    7/24: 179.6 yes, all my work went out the window. I went on the cruise. i have wanted to go on one for 20 years, but work has stopped me. well, retirement opened opportunities and i planned my cruise. since my baby sister is turning 50 on 7/30, I invited her to go with me as a birthday gift. we were on Royal Caribbean, and visited roatan, costa maya, and cozumel (i have probably spelled every one of those city names incorrectly). i will begin keeping track of my calories again, and MUST go shopping to get healthier options in the house (the man is predictable with donuts and frozen dinners.)

    7/25: 180.6 i've only been gone a week, and there's so much routine that has obviously slipped my mind. i forgot to do a morning weigh-in, so this mornings weight is after coffee and breakfast. i didn't drink enough water yesterday, need to get back to at least 8 glasses a day (hopefully more). i'm looking forward to my 173# again (even though that's not where near my goal weight)

    ROUND 194
    SW: 179.2


    Day/Weight/Comment

    7/26: 179.2 puffy leg this morning. that's not new, and i think it may have reduced a little since yesterday. salt intake was high yesterday, i'll have to watch that. calories and macros were great! so many things to stay focused on.

    7/27: 177.2 keeping up with the water is helping. leg is practically back to normal, just a little puff around the ankle. calories and macros were on point again, but sadly sodium was still a little high.

    7/28: 175.8 i think all the water weight is gone... the rest is probably the actual weight i gained. i usually eat a slice of white bread w/peanut butter as a snack for the last thing i eat. it carries me through 'til breakfast. i messed up last night and missed my snack. ended up eating PB bread at 2am today, so calories will be over today, and were under yesterday.

    7/29: 175.8 i'm actually quite happy to see this weight. my calories were excessive yesterday (as expected). I was sure to get my PB bread BEFORE going to bed last night. i will probably see a weight gain later in the week for my mess up.

    7/30: 174.8 look at that! it says i'm down a pound. did really good with calories yesterday, macros were off. oh well, keep on moving in the right direction.

    7/31: 173.4 my scale is just being deceitful again. i'll keep logging what it's spewing out, but don't believe a word of it.

    8/1: 172.6

    8/2: 172.2 not feeling my best this morning, so expecting a gain over the next few days. eating foods that will settle in my belly vs. counting calories. drinking ginger ale vs. water. got a little worried about covid since i just got back from the cruise, but took the rapid test, and got negative results. so, all i have to worry about will be added calories to my diet.

    8/3: 172.8

    8/4: 172.4 back to the diet (sort of). the man wants cheese burgers. i bought the ground beef, and handed it over to him. he said he made 6oz. patties for freezer and we each get a 5oz patty today. cheese burgers sound great, but oooh the calories. i took my burger and smooshed it very thin with 1 piece of cheese. once cooked, i cut the burger in half and placed the other half on italian bread w/mustard. i'll have the other half tomorrow. i'll be over my allotted calories for weight loss, but still below my maintenance calories.

    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!

    I am about 8.2 kg along the way to lose 32 kg. I use multiple tape measurements (cm) around my body because they aren't affected by salt intake. My weight has been dropping for 5 months now. Apparently I've been trying to lose weight since September 2012, the last time I was at goal weight. Let's see if stopping eating sugary food is going to change things.

    Heaviest ever 1st Jan 2021, goal+31.8 kg
    * means kg lost
    Round 181 ending 856 cm
    Round 182 ending 851 cm
    Round 183 ending 844.5 cm *
    Round 184 ending 841 cm
    Round 185 ending 836 cm
    Round 186 ending 833 cm *
    Round 187 ending 830 cm
    Round 188 ending 826 cm
    Round 189 ending 822.5 cm *
    Round 190 ending 817 cm
    Round 191 ending 814.5 cm
    Round 192 ending 812 cm
    Round 193 ending 808 cm *
    ...
    Round 262 ??? goal weight

    bolded numbers means dropped by 0.5 cm

    101.5 95.0 103.0 58.5 48.0 56.0 49.0 103.5 97.0 103.0 26th

    103.0 94.5 102.5 58.5 48.0 56.5 47.0 101.5 94.5 103.5 3rd
    102.5 96.5 104.5 60.0 49.0 57.0 47.0 104.0 97.5 104.0 4th
    This calculates to 805 cm, a loss from the last round

    How this round went: it would be fair to say that I ate too much this round, which seems to be my thing at the moment. I have moved, which means for various reasons I'm hoping that I'll lose weight faster from now on. I didn't do any exercise at the old place but I'm now at the gym, on the treadmill and walking with the expectation of running for a while within a month. Still having sugar, unfortunately.
