    You surely deserve some kind of vacation after everything you’re dealing with at the moment!

    @dawnbgethealthy
    It’ll be my first cruise ever. Pretty excited. Plus, I’ll be traveling with my mom so will certainly cherish the time with her.

    I have been actively trying to get healthier and lose weight seriously since May of this year.
    SW: 325.2
    CW: 296.2
    Goal weight for the challenge: 267
    I've been in a group with friends on WhatsApps since that time, but the momentum has died down and I've been struggling and in my head since July. I have lost and gained the same 3 pounds since then. I am looking to be more accountable and get my head back in the game.

    Day 1: Thurs, 8/18: dnw
    Day 2: Fri, 8/19: dnw
    Day 3: Sat, 8/20: dnw
    1st Week Goal Weight: N/A
    1st Week Actual Weight: N/A

    Day 4: Sun, 8/21: 296.2
    Day 5: Mon, 8/22: 296.6
    Day 6: Tues, 8/23: 295.6
    Day 7: Wed, 8/24: 293.8 (got to maintain atleast until the end of the week and trying to pause before over indulging in sugar which has been my downfall since July)

    I'm intentionally losing weight slowly, it's going to be about 2 years to get to goal weight (64 kg). Weight is in kilograms, did I eat sugary food, followed by how much I've overeaten above 6,000KJ per day since 1st August 2022, followed by my exercise on the treadmill (speed km/hr x minutes). Tracking intake and exercise will stop mid October 2022.
    Day 01 18-Aug 88.4, sugar, 11,500 excess food, treadmill 5.2x12, 4.0x33
    Day 02 19-Aug 88.1 new low, sugar, 10,500 excess food, treadmill 5.2x13, 4.0x32
    Day 03 20-Aug 87.6 new low, sugar, 9,500 excess food, treadmill 5.2x14, 4.0x31
    Day 04 21-Aug 87.2 new low, sugar, 9,000 excess food, treadmill 5.2x15, 4.0x30
    Day 05 22-Aug 87.6, sugar, 11,500 excess food, treadmill 5.2x10, 4.0x5, 5.2x5, 4.0x24, 5.3x1
    Day 06 23-Aug 89.3, sugar, 13,500 excess food, treadmill 5.2x10, 4.0x5, 5.2x5, 4.0x24, 5.3x2
    Day 07 24-Aug 88.6, sugar, 16,500 excess food, treadmill 5.2x5, 4.0x5, 5.2x5, 4.0x5, 5.2x5, 4.0x23, 5.3x3 I've been eating too much for various reasons, basically "sympathy meals", which really shouldn't be happening multiple times a week. I'm allowed to have "celebration meals" but again too often isn't useful. I've decided to stop running and I'll use the elliptical for a while, I'm getting quite tired and I can mentally switch off on the elliptical but I can't do that on the treadmill.
    Day 08 25-Aug 88.2, sugar, 15,500 excess food, elliptical 10 min each at 10, 9, 8 settings, I don't trust the energy values on machines so I'll give this session 100 units

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment

    Day 1: Thurs, 8/18: 222.7 Walk 1.5 miles with granddaughter in stroller. DIL & I took turns swimming laps at the pool while the other played with my 7 month old granddaughter who loves the water. Down a little from the highs of our last round. Success especially after book club at a Mexican restaurant last night. The chips & salsa filled me up before the chicken verde enchiladas arrived. The win is that I didn't order any margaritas or wine AND I replaced the rice & beans with a side salad. Another choice I made is when ordering fast food for lunch is I got the grilled chicken sandwich without the bun ... still had the fries which I shared with the baby & dogs and brought out the watermelon from the fridge to round out the meal.
    Day 2: Fri, 8/19: 221.6 Walked 1 mile and swam a few laps.
    Day 3: Sat, 8/20: 222.4 RAIN! No walk.
    1st Week Goal Weight: <222
    1st Week Actual Weight: 222.4

    Day 4: Sun, 8/21: 223.3 Walk 3.2. Bought some darn cookies that I mowed through.
    Day 5: Mon, 8/22: 224.2 Walk 1.6 miles. Cake at both lunch & dinner + cookies.
    Day 6: Tues, 8/23: DNW Walk 3.1 + .7 miles
    Day 7: Wed, 8/24: 223.4 Walk .8 mile, Strength Training 1/2 hr
    Day 8: Thurs, 8/25: 224.5 @3am
    Day 9: Fri, 8/26:
    Day 10: Sat: 8/27:
    2nd Week Goal Weight: <220
    2nd Week Actual Weight: N/A

    Not a great week for me. Focus seems to be out the window. I could not finish my strength training class Tuesday because I became dizzy going from floor to standing. Then my knee is bothering me walking. Gaining back the 20 lbs this year has done this to my active self and I need to get it back off so I can be active again!

    After 2 days of planning a vacation that is not happening. AND then helping my DD with her little 2 month old. I've not really done much for myself. TODAY's focus is less food, no snacking, more water ... and repairing all the wall damaged when we replaced the windows back in the spring so that I can put my curtains back up and get ready for entertaining a crowd at my home over the Labor Day weekend. I bought the paint and spackling Tuesday and ready to get started on this project.

    Geez, you have made amazing progress since coming back from vacay.
    This gives me hope that when I get back from my trip at the tail end of September that I will be able to shed anything that I put on eating all of that good Mexican food and beverages.
    I do have a full kitchen in the bungalow where I will be staying, but I very rarely cook. It will be good to have stuff in the fridge and snacks, but I envision that I will be getting food from the taquerias, fondas, luncherios while away. Why would I even think of trying to cook when there is authentic spicy food everywhere right? Completely can't wait to dive into those Mexicana breakfasts!! Normally I don't really eat breakfast, just berries and stuff all day at work, but to me there are no better breakfasts than the Mexican variety. Perhaps that will become my main meal of the day, flipping my normal eating on its head.

    You have had quite a few vacays this year, any plans for more?

    I am Dawn.
    61 and 11/12ths
    5'2"
    I live in SE BC Canada

    This will be my 11th round on this forum out of 13 of them.
    I have gained weight in 4 out of the last 5 100s
    I enjoy being on this journey with y'all. Weight loss requires a lot of work! We are worth it though.
    I aim to have an average of 500 calories in the Green each day, so I track my excess. I get in a good deal of activity and dance workouts. Like, if you had to pick a body type that you wanted to have, you do that sort of activity I think. Dance for me unlocks my creaky joints, lifts my spirits, stretches me out, works all of the muscles and is super fun. I do the 3-4 minute song variety, it keeps me up with what the "kids" are listening to : - )

    1st Week Goal Weight: 137.5
    1st Week Actual Weight: 138.8 Started at 137.7,
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 2548, /4 = 637 average

    Day 4: Sun, 8/21: 138.7 - Had hoped to be a little less today, but I guess being 0.1 down is better than gaining. I will try to be very "good" today : - )
    Day 5: Mon, 8/22: 139.1 - Absolutely no reason for a gain. Trying to take it in stride.
    Day 6: Tues, 8/23: 138.1 - Okay. Maybe into the 137s tomorrow? MFP yesterday said 117 if I ate like that every day. 2 years of MFP saying numbers like that, so I have hope.
    Day 7: Wed, 8/24: 138.8 - I have been hovering around this area for awhile, months? a year?
    Day 8: Thurs, 8/25: 138.3 - The weather has cooled right down here, 39c to 20c, almost 20 degrees. No more wandering around in a bathing suit, so I need to be careful because I am not conscious of my body in the same way.
    Day 9: Fri, 8/26:
    Day 10: Sat: 8/27:

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 135.9 (ambitious I know, but my trip will be coming up)
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: N/A
    Excess calories burned (in the green):

    Start weight this 100: 137.7
    Goal weight this 100: 127.7 - Very unrealistic, especially since I will be in Mexico for a good chunk of September and I am going to eat all of the yummy foods and drink a few Margaritas/Cervezas for sure. The most that I have ever lost in the 100 day challenge was 7 pounds once. In the 7 100s in which I actually lost weight it was more like 2-3 pounds loss over 100 days.

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ May 10, 2022 Starting Date
    My Name is Donna, Age 62. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA


    145320379.png

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s


    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    Starting Weight from End of Last Challenge: : 200.4
    Goal This Round: 185.4 (15 pound loss)
    Ending Weight this round:

    Weight in blue makes me blue because it’s a gain. Weight in fuchsia pink makes me feel cheery because it’s a loss. Weight in black means no change.

    Day 01-08/18-202.6-(Trend weight 199.9)
    Day 02-08/19-201.6-(Trend weight 200.0)

    Day 06-08/23-201.0-(Trend weight 200.2)

    Day 07-08/24-200.6-(Trend weight 200.3) I forgot to pull the water pill from the day before’s cubby (because I forgot to take it the day before) so now I am several days without it. Can’t take it today because I am traveling to cardiologist. My weight is up (probably related) from starting point by 0.4 and that is a disappointment. I’ll take it for sure tomorrow and I will watch my dinner out today! I hate when I can’t get my steps in when that is just about the only exercise I am approved for right now!


    WEEK 1 LOSS OR GAIN: +0.2 GAIN
    Accumulated Loss or Gain: +0.2 GAINED



    Day 08-08/25-199.8-(Trend weight 203.2) Onederland! Trying to figure that one out. Travel yesterday with very very little movement. Restaurant meal. Normal (not enough) sleep. Normal TMI. No water pill yesterday due to the travel. However, I was up & down all night going #1. I guess my body deided to finally get rid of some fluid retention in my ankles on it’s own so that must be it. So…cardiologist said absolutely no exercise including taking walks! I honestly thought I was approved to at least do that! I am supposed to be re-introduced into everything while being medically supervised (in case of another heart attack). They are especially worried because I still cannot breathe well with exertion. So I must attend cardiac rehab for probably 12 weeks. Of course, that will mean a lot of travel since we don’t have anything like that around here. I’m very disappointed. They are sending me for dopplers on my legs to look for blockages due to some symptoms, my vascular issues, my lack of pulse in the left foot, and my high glucose diabetes. That will be mid September. They are also sending me to a pulmonary function test in mid-October to make sure there isn’t something different going on with the breathing. My lung nodule appears to be stable so maybe COPD? I did smoke for 35 years but I quit 15 years ago! Anyway, sharing what I got in the case that it helps someone go get that medical care you need. Difficulty breathing which is different from before when you exercise? Call your doctor!

    @dawnbgethealthy You are going to have such a great time in Mexico! It's a tough balance enjoying vacation while not completely losing control (at least for me), but I've managed to have a good time every trip, have some indulgences, make good choices and exercise lots, and overall it's mostly been water weight that's come off when I get back. I wouldn't cook much on a vacation either.. I can relate to you there!

    Yes, it has been a big year of making up for lost travel time for sure.

    I actually leave on my last longer trip in a week. My aunt is getting married in Manitoba, so we're out there for the long weekend, and then we head to B.C. for my husband's second bike race of the year. He will be biking from Vancouver to Whistler on the Sea to Sky highway. We are driving out as it's easier to transport his bike so that will give us time to hit the Okanagan wineries on the way home!

    Other than that, we have a quick trip back to his home for Thankgiving to spend the holiday with his elderly mother who would otherwise be alone, and that's it. I say "it", but you're right... it's been a great year for travel!

    I don't really cook at home either. I make big batches of stuff, put them in containers marked with their name and calorie count and put them in the freezer. I take one out in the morning and have that for dinner. I do a bunch of cooking in the harvest season for my garden sometime in late October usually. (chili, borscht, carrot soups etc.)
    Otherwise I eat stuff right while I am in my garden, I gorge on sugar snap peas, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries etc. I will pull a pepper and bring it inside to eat with hummus. Such is my habit. Truth be told, I avoid having pots and stuff to wash for most of the year lol.

    You are driving across! Well, if I am not in Mexico on your way there or your way back I am pretty sure that you will have to come right by here or near here. I am in Cranbrook, BC. We could meet up!
    I love that you have had the chance for so much travel this year.

    I am Dawn.
    61 and 11/12ths
    5'2"
    I live in SE BC Canada

    This will be my 11th round on this forum out of 13 of them.
    I have gained weight in 4 out of the last 5 100s
    I enjoy being on this journey with y'all. Weight loss requires a lot of work! We are worth it though.
    I aim to have an average of 500 calories in the Green each day, so I track my excess. I get in a good deal of activity and dance workouts. Like, if you had to pick a body type that you wanted to have, you do that sort of activity I think. Dance for me unlocks my creaky joints, lifts my spirits, stretches me out, works all of the muscles and is super fun. I do the 3-4 minute song variety, it keeps me up with what the "kids" are listening to : - )

    1st Week Goal Weight: 137.5
    1st Week Actual Weight: 138.8 Started at 137.7,
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 2548, /4 = 637 average

    Day 4: Sun, 8/21: 138.7 - Had hoped to be a little less today, but I guess being 0.1 down is better than gaining. I will try to be very "good" today : - )
    Day 5: Mon, 8/22: 139.1 - Absolutely no reason for a gain. Trying to take it in stride.
    Day 6: Tues, 8/23: 138.1 - Okay. Maybe into the 137s tomorrow? MFP yesterday said 117 if I ate like that every day. 2 years of MFP saying numbers like that, so I have hope.
    Day 7: Wed, 8/24: 138.8 - I have been hovering around this area for awhile, months? a year?
    Day 8: Thurs, 8/25: 138.3 - The weather has cooled right down here, 39c to 20c, almost 20 degrees. No more wandering around in a bathing suit, so I need to be careful because I am not conscious of my body in the same way.
    Day 9: Fri, 8/26: 139.3 - Dang. Fridays are usually the day when I eat something a little more indulgent, call it a cheat meal that doesn't go over my calories. I will have to rethink that with a whole pound gain in one day seemingly for no reason.
    Day 10: Sat: 8/27:

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 135.9 (ambitious I know, but my trip will be coming up)
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: N/A
    Excess calories burned (in the green):

    Start weight this 100: 137.7
    Goal weight this 100: 127.7 - Very unrealistic, especially since I will be in Mexico for a good chunk of September and I am going to eat all of the yummy foods and drink a few Margaritas/Cervezas for sure. The most that I have ever lost in the 100 day challenge was 7 pounds once. In the 7 100s in which I actually lost weight it was more like 2-3 pounds loss over 100 days.

    I have been actively trying to get healthier and lose weight seriously since May of this year.
    SW: 325.2
    CW: 296.2
    Goal weight for the challenge: 267
    I've been in a group with friends on WhatsApps since that time, but the momentum has died down and I've been struggling and in my head since July. I have lost and gained the same 3 pounds since then. I am looking to be more accountable and get my head back in the game.

    Day 8: Thurs, 8/25: 293
    Day 9: Fri, 8/26: 293 (very unorthodox day for me, work up by 1 am and stayed up to do a 3:30 am airport drop-off. Within calories, but not the best foods, let's see how it reflects tomorrow)
    Day 10: Sat: 8/27:
    2nd Week Goal Weight: 294
