      Sun 8/14: 157.4; -1.5lbs
      ~ I’m proud that I was consistent with checking in through the entire challenge this go round. It was really important to me that I did that. Any weight loss will be an added bonus, especially since I never really did a good grocery run in preparation and my birthday celebrations trickled over to the first weekend of this challenge. So, I’ll take whatever loss I can get!

So seems noteworthy that if I succeed this time, then I would be able to say I overcame a challenging challenge in this 10-day challenge.”

    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.

    People say keto/LCHF isn’t sustainable. I’ve been doing it for almost 5 years with amazing results!

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

    Up and down - just riding the waves of life. 🌊 🏄‍♀️ (My new mantra-3/19/22)

    8/5 119.0 GKI 5.1
    8/6 118.0. GKI 6.6 Made chicken enchiladas from the leftover chicken breast. They were a little bland for my taste but DH has an intolerant tummy. In hindsight, mine are made in 1c corn tortillas and look different from his. I should have put some jalapeños in mine! Well, there are leftovers for today. DGD#2 arrives this evening. Eating out both tomorrow and Monday. A show tomorrow night and she gets to meet her new cousin who is 6 weeks old today.
    8/7 118.5 GKI 12.7 Today we ladies are getting mani/pedis, family lun-ner at Great Greek and a show with DGD#2 at South Point.
    8/8 118.5 GKI 11.0 The show last night was very good. Dinner at Juan’s Flaming Fajitas tonight with family.
    8/9 120.5 GKI 7.5 I knew I would be up and I’m fine with it. It may go up more and that’s okay. Steak fajitas for late (for us) dinner, about 3 chips and one small flour tortilla (both of those are house made,) also one regular Margarita and one skinny Margarita. The later was SOOO sweet! Awake at 5:20 this morning.
    8/10 119.5 GKI 12.3 I ate the 2 small flour tortillas I had left. DGD#2 went home. Amazing and sad how empty the house felt last night.
    8/11 118.5 GKI 8.3 Under all macros because I wasn’t really hungry.
    8/12 118.5 GKI. 5.8 Going to Texas Roadhouse this afternoon. YUM!
    8/13 120.0 GKI 10.4 2 rolls at TR so good and so expected! Almost 3x my carb limit from those rolls!!!
    8/14 121.0 GKI 13.7 at 4:45AM WHAT am I doing up this early????? No TMIx3 Under all macros yesterday.

    Day/Weight/Calories/Comment

    8/5 - 177.2
    Finally! I actually thought I might be up this morning—after 3 hours of tracking last night (which means 3 hours walking on a variety of surfaces from asphalt and concrete to mowed grass to knee-high weedy fields to lay tracks, track Rory, and follow my training partners as their dogs track) I was hungry (and skipped dinner) so I had popcorn and then a small dish of ice cream. I know, I know, but hey, I got my whole grain and fiber, my calcium, and a whole lot of satisfaction. 😁 Anyway, I’m glad to see this drop—I re-weighed three times to be sure! This morning I’m doing laundry and some weeding—the summer fun never stops! Here are a couple of shots of my gardens, back & front.

    8/6 - 177.8
    I thought yesterday’s check in was a little optimistic! That’s fine. Lots of miscellaneous jobs to do today, so that will keep me moving. Have a lovely Saturday!

    8/7 - 177.4
    Rory and I were out the door at 6:30 this morning to track with a friend before it gets too hot, which it’s starting to do. It was lovely out early, though! Enjoy your Sunday!

    8/8 - 178.8

    8/9 - 178.4

    8/10 - 177.4
    Apparently I failed to post for two days. But I’m sure I did. Hmmmm. Anyway, I filled in the missing weights, kicked up over the weekend. I did a bit of emotional eating. Oh, well, doing the best I can right now.

    8/11 - 177.6
    Later than usual. I weighed first thing but then was off to the vet with Rory and after that, i was sidetracked all day. But here I am! Off to do some tracking in a few minutes. Yep

    8/12 - 178
    Enjoy your Friday, all! I have two new roses to plant, so I’ll enjoy that. 🌹

    8/13 - 177.8
    Crazy ups & downs! But it’s ok, at least trend is slowly downward. It’s really cool here this morning, so great day to catch up on some gardening. The weeds are horrible this year, so I haven’t been able to keep up with them in the heat. They’d better look out now, though. 😁

    8/14 - 178
    Okay, not as down as I’d hoped for, but down for the round, so all good. I’m thinking of taking a break from tracking and and weighing next round, because I think about food all the time and wonder whether constant tracking contributes to that. I also excuse snacks too often because “it’s just a little over,” so I’m going to try next round just eating intuitively and intelligently to see what happens. Another great gardening day—I have one more rose to plant, and geziliions of weeds to pull. Enjoy your day!


    Goal for 2022-2023 Progress

    Total gain/loss = 0.8 gain

    So while my guests are visiting, I'm not loosing but consider it a holding pattern, but that works for me. I'm hoping to get back on track during the next round. My ultimate goal is mid-130s. I'll see y'all in the next round!

    08/12 -197.8- (Trend weight 199.4)

    08/13 -198.4- (Trend weight 199.3) My daughter brought home Thai food from out of town. Only ate half but I retain water easier than ever these days. Reunion dinner with friends today out of town. Scale will be up again tomorrow, especially from the drive/sitting. The food won’t help either but I’ll be extra careful on Sunday. I want to stay in Onederland.

    08/14 -200.2- (Trend weight 199.4) What a great reunion dinner it turned out to be yesterday! However, I wish the scale would have stayed a smidgen under 200. Tomorrow I see an endocrinologist for my diabetes. I guess my family doctor has given up on trying to manage it. This was such a wonderful round for so many! I am proud of you all for continuing to stay accountable and to make positive changes in your lives. See you next round.

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    RGW: < 135.0 pounds
    UGW: 130-135 pound range

    Day/Weight/Comment
    8/05: 133.4 - Holding steady. Did my workouts and normal eating and good sleep.
    8/06: 133.8 - Normal workouts and eating.
    8/07: 133.2 - Normal workout plus cleaned the refrigerator. Went to a barbecue at a friend’s place and they had so many fresh vegetables from their garden - delicious!
    8/08: 133.2 - Ate back every calorie on my plan. Snuck a small walk in at the end of the day to bring up my exercise calories.
    8/09: 132.9 - Worked out and then finished the rest of the house cleaning in preparation for our friends’ arrival. They called around 5pm with the news that the wife tested positive for Covid just then. We’re all so disappointed as we’ve been looking forward to this visit for almost a year.
    8/10: 132.1 - Got both my workouts in. Good eating within calories. Didn’t do much yesterday other than a little unsuccessful shopping trip.
    8/11: 133.4 - Had a nice long hike, but then ate a bunch of salty, sweet, carby things the rest of the afternoon/evening.
    8/12: 133.4 - Recovering from the hike (and fall) the day before so didn’t do anything more strenuous than a 35 minute slowish walk around the neighborhood. Consequently, didn’t have the exercise calories to consume, but ate as if I did.
    8/13: 133.2 - Back on track with my workouts. Ate every exercise calorie back. Slept well.
    8/14: 132.7 - Got my workouts in. Bought a bike helmet so I can join my husband again on bike rides.

    Total round weight loss/gain to date from EO last round: - 0.7 pounds

    ROUND 194
    SW: 179.2

    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.

    ROUND 195
    SW: 172.4

    Day/Weight/Comment

    8/5: 172.4 not a bad place to start the challenge

    8/6: 171.8 weight is "pre" everything. i usually weigh in after i've had coffee and water. haven't had coffee or water yet this morning, so i'm figuring i'm at least a solid 172 lbs.

    8/7: 172.4

    8/8: 171.8

    8/9: 171.4 i am actually getting excited to see the 160's. maybe by round 197??? what an accomplishment that would be!

    8/10: 171.8 had 1/2 a blueberry muffin from sams club yesterday. had the other 1/2 this morning. i knew i shouldn't have, but who can just leave a muffin top just sitting there!

    8/11: 171.4 that muffin sent me on a carbohydrate binge. exceeded calories and days was primarily carbs and fat, very little protein. my indiscretions always takes a few days before they surface. wish it was cooler, i might have been able to walk a little bit of that off. this summer has been miserably hot. diet diligence for the rest of the challenge!

    8/12: 170.2 the loss has confused me. after the carb. binge, i have mostly been eating fruits and vegetables. i did also have chicken wings, which i think i mis-calculated nutrition on (on the higher side) so i probably had way less calories than is healthy.

    8/13: 172.6 and there is it.... my carbohydrate binge taking its vengeance on me. :neutral:

    Day/Weight/Comment
    8/5 / 165.8 / Today after work my husband and I go up to the lake.. it's been a couple weekends since we've been there so we'll have grass cutting chores. Lots of relaxing otherwise!
    8/6 / 164.6 / Back to my maintenance range. Woo hoo! Yesterday I did a 30 minute Peloton ride and got my 10,000 steps. We have a celebratory dinner tonight at the lake for a friend who has been successfully kicking cancer's butt for a year now.
    8/7 / 165.8 / Didn't get many steps yesterday - went out for one walk but mostly ended up relaxing at our trailer. My husband cooked the celebratory meal for our friends.
    8/8 / 167 / Did walking, yoga, and strength for exercise yesterday. Our friends had us over for homemade pizza.
    8/9 / 166.2 / Dealing with some pretty big upcoming changes at work and finding the stress difficult. Trying to ensure I don't let my self care suffer. Still finding ways to execute on my good habits.
    8/10 / 167.6 / My night last night turned into a self-pity meltdown. I missed my exercise, had a donut and wine, and put myself to bed early. Today was a much better day all around. I did a good strength session, got in a bit of walking, and ate well.
    8/11 / 167.4 / Did a strength class after getting home last night and got to bed early. Haircut after work tonight.
    8/12 / 166.8 / In the middle of a painful IT upgrade at work. So glad the weekend is almost here. I had a big night of exercise yesterday that was a lot of fun. Off to the lake tonight.
    8/13 / 164 / Back in my maintenance range. Last night we were worried about our dog as she was acting strange but I think it was a bug bite. No long term effects but we were up much later than usual. I tested her with a short walk this morning and she seems back to normal. It's going to be too hot for me to bring her on the bike carrier so just my husband is going out so her and I will hang out and relax.
    8/14 / 163.8 / Yesterday was a day of good planning as I knew my husband was preparing a feast for supper. Rather than eat an unnecessary lunch and then eat the meal, I asked him to cook supper earlier than normal, so I was able to save my calories for the bigger meal. Between that and my efforts to get out for my 10K steps, it was a great day.

    64 yr young F, 5ft 4 Round 195 ( my 127th). Thanks @QuiltingJaine.

    Goal this round again is to lose. I need to continue to resist the Commonwealth Games Volunteer goodies to keep the movement downwards (3 shifts out of 10 left to do !! ) No binges, keep within calories & macros.
    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.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    8/5 136.4 – 217 excess calories eaten. Child minding my little DGS hence no structured exercise.
    8/6 136.4 - 6.83 miles walked yesterday, 217 calories over.

    exercise.png

    8/7 136.4 – 7.41 miles walked yesterday, 357 calories over; it was pizza night !
    8/8 136.4 – no structured walking; travelled to meet up with some old friends for lunch that we had not seen since BC (before covid !), sat til early evening catching up!!
    8/9 136.2 - 7.41 miles walked yesterday, my last Commonwealth Games volunteer shift, and I've really enjoyed the experience. Half of exercise calories eaten back.
    8/10 136.2 - 7.96 miles walked yesterday, gave blood and afterwards always indulge in a few treats! All but 16 exercise calories eaten back.
    8/11 138.4 – 10.91 miles walked, 225 calories over; went out for fish & chip lunch with DSs.
    8/12 138.4 – 3.59 miles walked, caring for little DGS & went out for a short walk as it was so hot !! Tried to keep cool & chill !
    8/13 138.4 – 9.27 miles walked , a third of exercise calories eaten back.
    8/14 139.2 – 4.66 miles walked yesterday. We travelled to North Wales yesterday to the longest, highest, fastest zip wire over a disused slate quarry. I bought the experience for DH's 60th birthday in 2020, like so many things, it was delayed due to Covid!! Such an adrenolin boost, loved it! We took a healthy packed lunch with us, but stopped at a bistro on the way back, I had seafood risotto, so much rice!! Hoping this bounce is due to the extra carbs!

    I have done this challenge before and it really helped keep me on track to healthy living. I have since gained most of that weight back (and then some) but I'm not discouraged. I am a 21-year old varsity college athlete who is just looking to lean up a bit - taking small goals at a time as weight-loss isn't my goal - just trying to lean myself into a healthier lifestyle.
    Round 146: -5.1lbs
    Round 147: -0.3lbs
    Round 148: -3.5lbs
    Round 149: +1.6lbs

    SW: 181.1lbs
    CW: 190.0
    GW: 175.0

    Day/Weight/Comment
    8/10: 190.0 - this is +17 lbs from where I was the last time I did this challenge. Not to be discouraged because this is also 5lbs DOWN from where I was at the beginning of summer. Excited to see how my numbers progress over the days!
    8/11: 189.8 - gonna be tough this weekend to be in my deficit as it's my anniversary
    8/12: 190.4 - not a promising start to the weekend, I may be unable to weigh tomorrow but it is what it is. I'm not restricting myself from food at all this weekend so we'll see where that takes us. 8 more days until I move and I can properly meal plan
    8/13: 190.8
    8/14: 191.0 - results as expected considering the weekend

    Average: 190.4
    Net Loss/Gain: +16.6

    Maintenance Range Goal: 200-205

    2. Major Goal this round is to make even a little bit of progress toward my maintenance range.
    3. Resist mindless shoveling of food into my cake hole! This is a big one.

    /walking/ Family reunion this Saturday night. Sister In-law and DH with us over the weekend. They always bring some nutrition damaging store bought snack or treat. Going to try to think twice before damage is done.


    8/6: 217
    / not much/ This big bump up in weight is not as bad as it looks since I round to the nearest whole number. And, it is not without reason. TMI, TMF (food), TMS (salt), TMD (drink).

    8/7: 217
    / big bike ride (for me), mowed grass /

    8/8: 219
    /walking/ It hurts to report this number, but this is why I am here, so I can own up to my compulsive behavior. DW made a belated Birthday Blueberry Pie. (my preference in lieu of BD cake) Lots of reunion/houseguest food + leftovers. I probably ate a whole fried chicken over the course of two days.

    8/9: 219
    /walking/ Still recovering from the weekend obviously. I don’t like myself very much right now, but I will get over it. 😊

    As a start, I want to eliminate processed sugar and severely reduce other carbs from the diet. (except for the last piece of blueberry pie.) Time to set a couple world records (at least personal bests) for low carb consumption.

    8/10: 216
    /spinning and stretching/
    Yesterday was not the low carb record day…. Not with that last piece of pie to finish off. In spite of that, I DID make a choice to avoid a lot of carbs.

    8/11: 215
    /none/ Did manage to keep calories logged and under yesterday.

    8/12: 215
    /pickleball/ Pickleball is a fun game. Played last evening and one time on my trip to Colorado. Played doubles with DW and another couple. I hurt myself playing about a year ago, so I am mindful of staying within my own limits. (I can’t go diving for those dink shots! HA!)


    8/13: 215
    /bike rode, walk/

    8/14: 215
    /bigger bike ride, busy all day/ Overall a good round in spite of the prior weekend catastrophe. I really do think about my accountability to this group whether I am winning or failing. Thanks all for joining me in this endeavor. Onward and downward!

    I like to track averages due to my wild fluctuations. For the same reason, I like to weigh daily so I can see the lows from time to time. It gives me hope.

    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!

    Day/Weight/Steps/Active Minutes/Comment:

    8/5 - 162.2 - 23,600/162. Nice cool night for a walk. Slept terribly. Made an Avocado Shrimp salad for dinner, was really good. SO is allergic to shellfish so I try and sneak some in when he's away now and then. Happy Friday to those who celebrate!!
    8/6 - 161.4 - 27,700/198. SO Is home a few days anyway. Going to visit his Dad a day or 2 possible no scale. Possible extra calories. Got in an extra long walk last night and slept fabulous!!

    8/7 - DNW - No scale
    8/8 - DNW - No scale
    8/9 - 167
    8/10 - 167.7
    8/11 - 170
    8/12 - 170.2
    8/13 - 169.8

    8/14 - 169.5 - It's been a busy week off! and my son who lives in the basement has been working night shift so we've been getting up and rushing out so he can rest up. SO was home the whole time and we visited his Dad for a few days. We hike to an amazing waterfall. Had some great meals out. Ice cream adventures and many day trips and visits. Even a trip to the hospital as SO hit some high blood pressure numbers. Looking forward to the next 10 and hoping this 10 lb gain is mostly water. It's a lesson and a good reminder not to give up, enjoy life sometimes.
