    I am about 8 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, although I had a blip of 10 weeks when I headed in the wrong direction. 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


    I gained this round so I'm starting again, bolded numbers are for referring to in the next round


    100.5 93.5 105.0 58.5 48.5 57.5 49.0 101.5 95.0 105.5 3rd Nov
    100.0 93.0 103.5 58.0 48.5 57.0 49.0 101.0 94.5 104.0 4th Nov
    101.5 94.5 104.0 57.5 48.0 56.5 49.0 102.5 96.0 104.5 5th Nov
    101.0 94.5 104.5 58.5 48.0 57.5 48.0 102.0 96.0 105.0 6th Nov
    101.0 94.0 104.5 58.0 48.5 57.0 49.5 102.0 95.5 105.0 7th Nov
    101.0 93.5 103.5 57.5 48.5 57.0 46.5 102.0 95.0 104.0 8th Nov
    100.0 93.5 105.0 57.0 46.0 57.5 47.5 101.0 95.0 105.5 9th Nov
    101.5 94.0 104.5 58.5 48.0 56.0 48.0 102.5 95.5 105.0 10th Nov
    101.0 93.5 105.5 58.0 48.5 57.0 48.0 102.0 95.0 106.0 11th Nov
    101.0 93.5 104.5 58.5 48.0 57.0 47.0 102.0 95.0 105.0 12th Nov



    Total is 812.5 cm

    How this round went: my gym closed and I joined another gym. I have started matching the day of the month with the number of minutes running on the treadmill. I think that's why I didn't lose this round. The exercise was too easy and it didn't encourage me to eat less.

    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!

    SW: 235
    R204 GW:230 AW:228.4 Loss:6.6
    GW: 180

    My basic plan is to lose one pound a week (on avg). This week is a little extra since I am just starting (first week, if I am good, is usually more).

    Day/Weight/Comment
    11/7 235: The morning after a 2-week cruise. Changing from WW to MyFitnessPal and calories.
    11/8 231.8: First day is always easy to lose. I tracked everything and really didn't eat enough. Wasn't my plan.
    11/9 231.6: Customer was in town so I was less active and ate a few things that I shouldn't. But I owned it all and tracked everything!
    11/10 230.6: A little surprised. Same going on as 11/9. Tracked everything. I'll take it! Hungry today but I am watching the calories and other nutrients - mostly trying not to eat all the candy that is here at work (and I have been really good - because it is over if I even have just one!).
    11/11 228.6: Like I said yesterday... I was hungry... and I did eat my calories...
    11/12 228.4

    SW: 183
    Day/Weight/Comment

    11/14: 165.2
    11/15: 164.8 .. hard day. woke at 3am, worrying. Too many areas of stress. At 7pm vowed I'd stay away from "all breads" for 5 days but that didn't work.
    11/16: 166, expected gain. Today I will breathe, try to stay focused and positive. Tomorrow I'll weigh less.
