Ultimate Goal: 135lbs
Starting weight for R23: 151.2lbs
R23 Goal Weight: 149lbs
10/24 150.2 I have a feeling todays drop is from being dehydrated. I stayed within calories yesterday, and did a 1mile brisk walk.
10/25 149.6 Stayed within calories.
10/26 149.4 Stayed within calories, but had too much sodium. Roasted pumpkins seeds yesterday. Boy those are hard to resist!
10/28 149.0 Baby steps, but I'll take it
10/31 DNW I know my weight will be up today. Covered in hives from an antibiobic I was taking for a sinus infection, so I'm also taking an antihistamine.
11/1 149.2 Just hanging in there. Staying within calories
Awesome! Thank you as always for posting @quiltingjaine! These challenges really keep me motivated and you are a great group of people! ❤️
This will be my 14th round and I have lost a total of 28.9 pounds so far while doing these challenges! This challenge brings me the most success and is much easier by breaking up my goals into smaller chunks.
I have one very solid goal, to be in Onederland by 12/17/22, after that, let the weight come off how it does.
UGW: under 150 ish
RGW: 202 ish
I’m hoping to at least maintain this round. I have some pretty nerve-wracking medical procedures coming up and I’ve been eating my emotions.
I feel like I’ve been so close to Onederland for FOREVER but it’s really just that I’ve been thinking about it forever and I need to chill.
10/27: 204.6 🙁

My breast biopsies came back as one benign, one malignant. I will have surgery in the next 3-4 weeks. I will have more of a plan in place next week. My only option is to move forward!
Not at home, no scales
This is really really depressing. I’m doing everything the same except being really stressed out because of my diagnosis. I worked really hard to lose 47 pounds and DO NOT want to gain it back. 🙁5
@deepwoodslady Thank you, your words mean so much. I will send you a message❤️2

Round 202 Posts
This is my posting format….
Month/Day: Scale Reading - First thing today after bathroom visit before getting dressed.
/ Exercise – yesterday / Comment
/walking/ Can’t believe it is a new round already. This round there will be some of the dreaded Halloween candy in the house.
10/23: 215 Starting weight at end of last round.
/…/ Nothing much to report
/a little walk/ These readings do not jive with what I have been eating. They should be higher.
Getting ready for a weekend with friends at their lake cottage. Hopefully we will get a little hiking in to go along with the great food. Maybe some fishing too.
/nothing/ A long weekend of feasting capped with a bowl of candy. I am having a hiccup. Time to buckle down.

You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be better than you were before

11/01 - 161.3 - Still no TOM, still excessively bloated, and still very much uncomfortable. I am not sure what's going on with my body at this point. I'm rightfully impatient this go around. We ended up going to Fam's for homemade gumbo then trick or treating with the kiddos. I tossed together a Wednesday Addams look from the Addams Family (didn't have time or opportunity to buy anything. Fortunately I have the hair!) and walked around with them. Last night's dinner was going to be homemade burgers (with homemade buns! Wheee) but not sure if we are changing it up to "Taco Tuesday" today and forgetting burgers. I do have some sweet potatoes I roasted yesterday I can add to lunch or dinner because I simply love them so much. I also bought a butternut squash (a fall favorite of mine) and an acorn squash. I've never had acorn or spaghetti squash but it was a goal of mine to try at least one of them this year. I might have to find a good recipe and make it up for lunch. Alright, it's 6:30 already, I need to get some yoga in before work at 7. Hopefully today is the day I can catch up on posts, too.
Previous Day's Comments10/24 - Not the worst for a weekend bump. Linner turned into dinner last night and all the sides brought me closer to calorie goal than I originally anticipated. I attempted to estimate logging, but could be off as with anything made by others. I did manage no alcohol, though! And only ate until I was comfortably satisfied and no more! Little things that will keep me on track. I also did a 10 minute bedtime yoga routine before curling up in bed which got me my 3 days of workouts. New week starts today with a 10 minute rowing workout followed by 15 minute flexibility yoga. Not sure plans for lunches or dinners this week but I haven't gone to the store. Trying to focus on paying off debt and limit the grocery bill to only as necessary. No fresh fruits or veggies so I think I'll add frozen fruits and veg to my list for the future. I do have some canned veg as well as the steamable packs to get through until my next trip. On to the weekly routine and (hopefully) progress!!
10/25 - Only thing I can think of is that dinner was a bit more salty than I prefer last night.... That and I'm pretty sore, mostly upper body/back but a little in the lower legs from yesterday's rowing workout. No workout this morning due to the soreness. May aim for a little yoga later on. Not entirely sure dinner other than BF pulled out some fajita chicken meat (he makes fajitas, burritos, and tacos from it). I splurged with breakfast as I was hungry and ate a piece of pumpkin bread I made over the weekend with my coffee. I've been craving coffee cake, but the bread is lower calories and less sugar. Plus, for someone who hates pumpkin flavor, it's not terribly bad! Will need to up the movement through the day as well as watch my food intake very carefully if I want to see a drop tomorrow, though. I have lunch planned (the frozen steam bags of broccoli with some of the chicken breast from yesterday's lunch), and logged both lunch and what I KNOW will be involved with dinner to give me a good idea of how close I am. Totally doable!
10/26 - It's down but not as much as I had hoped. Had to estimate calories on a chicken caesar salad from a bar/grill (it was the best caesar salad I've had). Went there after dropping truck off and hearing there's a high chance it'll be done by end of day. (Spoiler: it was not). Fortunately, it was so filling (and we ate so late) that I wasn't super hungry at dinner. I ended up only having one small taco which, by estimate, put me right at goals. And no exercise calories eaten back. Today BF promised to help FamHub and with only one vehicle (jeep has a flat) I will have to go into town with him to drive the car home if the truck gets finished. Tossed and turned all night so slept in an extra 30 minutes. No time for workout. Depending on what we help with at FamHub's (usually physical labor), I'll focus on squeezing in 10 squats here, 10 pushups there through the day to get that little strength building and movement. About to go pour my cup of coffee and I'll knock out 10 squats doing that to start the day strong!
10/27 - I really don't know.... I'm still a tad sore today but not enough to increase the scale... I'm honestly feeling horribly bloated, even if I don't look that bad. It seems too early for the pre-TOM bloat, but maybe? It's about all I can think of. I've been logging all my food, paying attention to portions, and drinking OVER my 90oz goal most days (and right on goal the other days). Yesterday I ended up having to do a lunch break grocery run since we were out of breakfast foods for today and tomorrow. I parked at the back of the parking lot and ran inside..not walked, I actually jogged. Walked with the grocery cart back to the car, loaded it and got a text asking for something. So I jogged back to the store, got what I needed, and it was small enough to hold so I jogged the entire parking lot back to my car. 3 parking lot distance runs in one day. Whew. This morning I went ahead and knocked out a 20 min complete rowing workout so I couldn't distract myself or procrastinate until it was too late. On a happy note, I got a big ol' thing of baby spinach and some extra bell peppers so I can make myself some healthier breakfasts and lunches. I'll turn my leftover tacos into taco salad haha! I'll add spinach and bell pepper to my eggs!

10/31 - Weekend was not kind to me. Eating out all day Saturday then spur of the moment meals Sunday as we did some much needed house work while watching football (new dining room light installed, got a wall back up behind washer and dryer. Whew). Today I'm sore, slightly dehydrated still (despite having enough water yesterday, it takes a few days), and I'm all kinds of bloated. I expected TOM to be here by today but it's having a grand ol' time keeping me feeling bloated and miserable as long as possible I'm guessing. No workout as my body needs a break after yesterday's manual labor. Will be trying to get up and move through the day, though, just to help move some of the water I'm retaining. Already ate breakfast so no fasting for me. Will have to plan lunch accordingly as I'm not sure dinner plans yet. Fortunately, no trick or treaters this far out into the country so no halloween candy in the house. I'm in full-on damage control for the last days of this round for sure.

11/01-121.8 Ate a real dinner last night. Still waking up with a raw "Omicron" throat until I drink my first cup of coffee. I bit the bullet and booked an 11 days cruise for our anniversary (which we celebrate for 3 days) and my birthday. This reinforces my goal timeline as the cruise is at the end of Dec.
Original Starting Weight - 301.4
Lowest Weight - 190.0
10/24 - 209.2 - I'm just going through a rough patch right now. Hard to be motivated to get up and work hard. I don't know if I'm sick or just a little overworked. I got a 30 minute ride in this morning and a strength class. Hoping to do some more tonight but I'm already tired so we shall see... I'd like to see 207 during this 10 days.
10/25 - 211.0 - Well I guess this is the difference between weighing after a hard cardio workout and weighing after just strength. Have to get the eating under control that's the big issue. Obviously I can't work out as much with a baby so diet is so important and I just have to focus on that.
10/26 - 211.0 - Baby woke me up at 1:30am and 5am to eat. Still got a ride in this morning but man the stress eating is real. I have to focus on drinking water so I don't mistake thirst for hunger. I frustrate myself because I say this stuff and then grab an easy snack in the afternoon and then more at night.
10/27 - 209.6 - I got a little more sleep last night after my wife took the baby for the 1am feeding. I should've woken up at 5 to start my workouts but I needed that sleep. I got a 30 minute ride in and a 10 minute strength class. Hoping to do something tonight whether it's a walk, yoga, whatever to get my body moving more.
11/1 - 212.0 - Disappeared for a few days but I was weighing about the same every day. My friends and I are doing sober November and I'm really going to try to watch my diet this month to try to get these extra pounds off. All this working out I'm doing is for nothing if I eat poorly!
10/25 208 do I see a pattern here? Lol. At least it’s a good pattern.

10/24 - 178.6
Carry over from my grief splurge. This too shall pass. I’m hoping to get out for a long walk on our beautiful Rivergreenway.
10/25 - 177.6
10/26 - 178.2
Pitch-in lunch yesterday with my creative group. I did skip dinner, but also ate well at lunch and some of it was salty. Mostly healthy, though, so that was good. I think a lot of this is H2O. On track today.
10/27 - 176.8
Yay! I knew a lot of that weight was water.
10/28 - 176.8
Nothing to report! 🤪
10/29 - 176.6
I’m doing much better controlling my snack monster at night. Yay!
10/30 - 176.2
Ok, something’s working!
10/31 - 🎃 177
Pizza last night, and calories a bit high, but not catastrophic. And I haven’t touched the Halloween candy, so there’s that!
11/01 - 176.4
That’s better. I feel like I beat Halloween. I had one mini PayDay bar, which satisfied my desires, and was still within calories.
@joans1976 I am so sorry about your diagnosis. Wishing you strength as you proceed with your treatment plan. You've got this5
SW: 127.4 on 10/23/22
10/24 125.2 -(added after a late morning weight after I forgot first thing. Guess I was retaining quite a bit of water). “Forgot” to step on the scale this morning. I also "forgot" to finish out the last round but I think it would have been a gain of 2 lbs! I have been really off track but I've been giving myself grace for the past week in the wake of the grandfather's death. No more of that, though, as I don't want to have to start over entirely. The service was very nice on Friday and gave me closure, and I was happy to see my dad was handling everything pretty well. I'm sure he'll have his ups and downs, but I think we all knew Grandaddy was ready to move on at the age of 97. This week I'm traveling for work Wednesday through Friday, then it will be Halloweekend with lots of parties so it's sure to be a challenging round for me again. I can do it, though!
10/25 - 125.4. Rough day here as my 20-month-old popped a fever overnight. He seems to be doing better, but the timing stinks because I leave for the airport at 4am tomorrow for a business trip. Very grateful my mom is still coming to help out. I’m 95% sure she already has been exposed to this via my nephew anyway. DH and I are going on a date to see Weird Al about 45 minutes from home tonight, so I’m really going to be burning the candle at both ends. I only hope the toddler can sleep through, unlike last night.
10/26 - 124.4! I don’t expect to stay here but it feels good to bust through 125. All of my sleep was in the recliner with my restless toddler, until about midnight to 3am. Then I couldn’t sleep due to travel anxiety until my alarm at 4, plus the kiddo needed me again. It’s going to be a rough day.
10/27 - DNW - travel. Shortly after I posted yesterday my dad called me and told my grandma had passed away. That's both of his parents within a week and a half. I'm a little shaken up. They were married for 75 years so maybe it's just the perfect ending to their love story. I was in the middle of my layover when I got the call. I'm kind of glad I got the call while enroute because if I'd heard about it on Tuesday night I may have yet again postponed my trip. But between this and the sick baby I am feeling like I shouldn't be here at all. I really have to make it through the study I'm doing today, though. I'm getting home at midnight on Friday and we have to drive to my hometown yet again for a funeral Saturday.
10/28 - travel
10/29 - 125.6
10/30 - 124.8. Thank you everyone for the kind words and condolences. The funeral was a little harder than I expected. I have many fond memories of her, mostly from childhood playing games on her living room floor and going on walks with her when she would still walk around her neighborhood. She was probably the first person to model the necessity of exercise to me. Unfortunately she started having a lot of foot problems many years ago, and now I know how difficult that must have been for her. Her funeral service was basically a carbon copy of my grandfather’s. It was closed casket but we got to view her before the visitation, and she looked beautiful and peaceful.
The toddler has hand-foot-and-mouth disease, so we didn’t get to go to the dinner my dad hosted. Instead, we drove home and didn’t spend the night, which honestly I am grateful for because our house is in total shambles after all the chaos. I am going to make a meal plan for the week now. I hope everyone has a restorative Sunday.
10/31 - 126. Not too surprised. I have fallen off the wagon in many ways this round. I got into my 3-year-old's candy that he got from the drive-through trick or treat we went to. My challenge for November is going to be rationing my own candy intake *and* my kids' candy intake. I'm adding in more strength training starting today. Assuming I can have somewhat productive work sessions, I'm planning a good amount of activity for myself including: 30-minute dog walk/jog, 45-minute peloton ride, 10-minute arms with light weights, and a 10-minute core workout.
11/1 - 126 again. OMG candy. My kids collected so much last night, and I really struggle with stopping at a single serving. I guess the only answer is to skip it all together. I did not start my strength training yesterday, so I'll start today! Update: I did it! Twenty minutes of pilates
Thanks @quiltingjaine for another round.

10/24 211. A little surprised since yesterday was a good day with lots of exercise.
10/25 210.8 I look at the scale and think just .2 is all? But then I think great how can I do this every day? That would be 73 pounds in a year, 6 pounds in a month, and 2 pounds in a round. Wow, what a little bit every day could accomplish.
11/1 209.8 Finally back under 210! No Halloween candy yesterday and only one little homemade sweet treat. Also got a walk in.
HSW: - 9/16/2022 – 235 lbs.
UGW: 150 lbs.
R201 EW: 225.2 lbs.
R202 EW: 223.4 lbs.
10/24 223.8 lbs.
10/25 222.4 lbs. I am having a love hate relationship with the daily weigh ins. I hate to see the up and down fluctuations. I love that the fluctuations teach me how my body is reacting to the things I do and eat. I can usually look at my food log and see what is going on.
10/26 223 lbs.
10/27 223 lbs. I have been fairly good with my exercising but have been slightly over on my food intake the last couple of days.
10/28 223.4 lbs.
10/29 222.4 lbs.
10/30 221.8 lbs.
10/31 222 lbs. I went to the doctor today for a follow up and it was such a wonderful change to be able to tell her all the positive changes I have been making since the last visit. She was pleased as well. My only problem is that she doesn’t think I should lose the weight that I would like to lose. She said that as you get older if you are slim you end up having more injuries. Don’t get me wrong I will be thrilled to get down to 180lbs. but I don’t envision that as my end goal. I guess we will have to look at it again when I get there.
11/1 222.4 lbs.
10/24 - 176.4 Salty dinner but in calorie budget. Will try to drink extra today.
10/25 - 176.2 Ate every last calorie in my budget yesterday and lost a small bit. I can live with this. I need to cut down on the salt tho.
10/26 - 175.8 Ok, back to the start and ready to post a loss for this round.
10/27 - 176.0 No biggie. Just have to cut back a little.
10/28 - 175.4
10/29 - 175.8
10/30 - 176.0
10/31 - 176.2 Definitely going the wrong way.
11/1 - 176.2 What the heck! Cut waaaay back yesterday and stayed the same. Could have at least had a .2 loss.
Thank you, @quiltingjaine !

@joans1976 Stress is tough!! I’m sure that has been my problem for several weeks - between husband’s shoulder replacement on 9/6 (he’s sleeping in the recliner STILL) and wants his other done ASAP, additionally he’s running for our HOA board, my discovering the apparent cause of my vertigo issue and the doctor insisting I need to take that med, med asst arguing with me about my BP cuff being “inaccurate” before she saw and DID NOT acknowledge that her reading and mine were similar and topped off by the pharmacist pointing out a previous allergy that I’m now hoping to not see with the new medication. 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️ Sometimes I feel like giving up and getting a dozen jelly donuts!!! This is life and better than the other option! Unfortunately stress is everywhere. 😢

SW RND 203 122.5
10/24 122.0 Today was my art quilt group. I left the house at 8:30 and got home around 2:30. Lots of sitting and driving!
10/25 122.0 My glucose and ketones were great this morning considering we had McRib and fries for dinner! DH read they’re back - maybe for the last time and wanted to see if they were as good as the first time - decades ago at the Riverboat McDonald’s in St. Louis. They’re not.
10/26 122.5 Went to brunch at Omelet House, ate 1 slice of sourdough and some fried potatoes as well as about 1/4 of my 6 egg Chile verde omelet.
10/28 123.0 I was 123.5 when I got up but after 6 cups of coffee and TMI x 2, I reweighed. That’s not something I usually do but I felt lighter.
10/29 123.5 Had pot roast and veg (no potatoes for me) for the first time in months. Not DH’s favorite-he tolerates it on occasion because I like it. ❤️ Doctor wasn’t happy with my BP, med asst said “those cuffs aren’t very accurate” before she even checked my BP which is ALWAYS up in office however, I showed her that it was within a couple of points of their machine and my BP is good when not there. He said I had only taken the one med for “a couple of days” but I had taken it for about 2 YEARS (he initiated it) when I realized it was the cause of my vertigo. Added another med which I wasn’t able to pick up when I was headed home from errands in the afternoon. Sorry for the rant - not checking BP now!!!
10/30 123.0 Took new BP med last night. Not excited about possible side effects especially since the pharmacist said because I had a previous allergic reaction to a CCB I need to watch for it. Plus “peripheral swelling” is on the list.Sorry for another rant. This whole thing is making my BP go up!!!!
10/31 123.5 Great Greek yesterday, ate half a pita. Had a headache yesterday afternoon and it was worse when I woke up this morning. Not my “normal” arthritis headache but may be gone now. Awake at 4:30AM
11/1 122.0 ??? Lots of protein yesterday ???
@deepwoodslady Long ago I realized that only I can control what goes in my mouth. My MIL was a food pusher and I had to learn to deal with it.6
SW: 204.4 (Used to be 245, got down to 172, then it edged back up (220s ) and has been bouncing around since.
10/24 - 204.4 Been doing pretty much everything I can think of to make the weight come off instead of creeping up and it's been working, kindof. Meal planning starting this week making my cico stricter. Went walking at lunch even though didn't want to as was windy. Round 203 is another first to add to accountability.
10/25 203.4 At Costco during my lunch. Had eaten my am/lunch food all at breakfast, bought a bag of Cauliflower bits and finished it off. Finding it difficult to stick with my plan; need more bulk and crunch. And to sloooww down. Will roast carrots tonite to add in.
10/26 205.8 Sodium bloating I believe. Again at Costco.
10/27 207.0 Turning this around, have to control myself instead of sabotaging. I've been meal planning, and not enough there.
10/28 207.8 So upset with myself. I worked so much to get the wt down and cutting loose. Let it go! So this weekend hydrate & hydrate. I'm exercising+, going to bed earlier+, following through at work+. It's the pm at home. Today have a hs football game and going to a game tomorrow night. Plan ahead and get back on track, this is for ME.
10/29 211.0 Think it was the burrito last night that again is too much sodium. aaah
10/30 206.0 Ate sparingly on the 29th and some of the bloat came off. Sunday is my relax and catch up day, but was headachey from the last night. Haven't been following a routine this whole thing.
10/31 207.8 Drank the green smoothie, walked at lunch and went to the gym this am. Drinking water, and going to bed early tonite. Feel like this 10 day has been a wash, but going to look at it as a practice. I can do better.
11/01 206.8 No candy opened & no sabotage yesterday. Mind is in a better place. Mindful!

10/24: 134.5 - another travel day, but arrived home to weigh. Not sure how accurate it was since it was later in the day.
10/25: 134.5 - Today begins recovery from 2.5 weeks of vacation where I really didn’t count any calories and probably ate my weight in carbs, desserts, fried foods, etc. Got some good exercise in, but there were too many rest days or travel days that made exercising hard.
10/26: 132.3 - Super surprised. I got a lot of exercise/move points in, but had a full-on carb binge in the evening.
10/27: 132.5 - Back to my routines…
10/28: 132.5 - Same ‘ol, same ‘ol…
10/29: 134.9 - Yikes! Did not exercise nor did I drink much water. Carb city as well…
10/30: 134.9 - Better with exercise, eating and water.
10/31: 133.6 - Got my workouts in and ate pretty well yesterday
11/1: 134.0 - Workouts completed, but did not particularly watch what I ate.
