    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ March 07, 2023 through June 14, 2023
    My Name is Donna, Age 62. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    My mini-challenge is to lose 10 pounds by Easter 2023. I started my efforts on Dec. 10th weighing 198.4. My wish is to weigh 188.4 by Easter April 9th, 2023. That gives me about 4 months to lose 10 pounds. Sounds easy but, trust me, it won’t be. Especially when outside exercise is so limited for me this slippery time of year!

    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

    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 16-03/22-188.2-(Trend weight 190.1)

    Day 17-03/23-188.4-(Trend weight 190.0) Travel today. Yesterday’s stats: 1145 Calories, 68 Total Carbs, 364 exercise calories burned and not eaten back. 4 hours 38 minutes of sleep. 0.2 lbs Gained overnight. Humph.

    Day 18-03/24-188.0-(Trend weight 189.8) My good choices finally caught up with the scale today from the days earlier in the week. But yesterday was a bit of a binge. I lost all control. It was fueled by emotions as I was called into the “principal’s office” at the cardiac rehab and told that I should have went to the hospital with the bp drops, or at the very least, contacted one of my doctors. My readings that had improved by Sunday night were still good enough on Monday morning to go. However, yesterday evening at home, they dropped yet again and stayed that way all night. I began my emotional eating binge and didn’t stop until midnight. I discontinued the night time bp med again (Lisinopril) but continue to take the Metroprolol (prolly spelled wrong) in the mornings because it is not just a bp med but it also helps the heart to actually pump. My blood pressure is now okay again today. I am babysitting my DGS again today so hopefully I will continue to feel well. In any case, overeating foods, especially those that are bad for my diabetes, are not going to help. Emotional eating never solves the problem. This realization is helping me, at least for today. I hope it helps someone else too.

    I’m Teri
    Age 59, 5’4”

    Challenge Starting Weight: 144 lbs
    Challenge Goal Weight: 138lbs
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 130-133 lbs
    Challenge Ending Weight:
    Total Weight Loss for Challenge:
    Day 1 – Tues March 07 -- 144 – This is the same weight I started with on the last Challenge. There were many ups and downs on the scale but, alas, I’m right back where I started.
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 – 144.6 – I think this jump is still a result of going off track last week up until Sunday. This week’s goal is to bring down the inflammation.
    Day 3 – Thur March 09 – 144.4
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 – 142.9 – Happy to see this number on the scale this morning. I’ve been working on correcting what I undid last week with too much sugar & carbs. Just glad I was able to jump back on the wagon this week. Feeling less bloated. Yay! Still working on getting some exercise in though.
    Day 5 – Sat March 11 – 142.4
    Day 6 – Sun March 12 – 142.6 Ate later than usual last night. Also had a glass and a half of wine.
    Day 7 – Mon March 13 – 142.8 Greek food for lunch yesterday with a girlfriend, then a visit to the Cat Café. Of course, I came home with one of those things.  McDonald’s for dinner. Not a good choice but didn’t overdo it. Just a McChicken sandwich and small fries.

    Week 1: 1.2 lbs lost
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal: 4.8

    Day 8 – Tues March 14 -- 142.5
    Day 9 – Wed March 15 -- 141.5
    Day 10 – Thur March 16 -- 141.9
    Day 11 – Fri March 17 -- 142.4 Still consistent with IF, but this jump is definitely a combination of eating too much even when not hungry, adding more carbs than usual, and having dinner last night from Panda Express is which is high in sodium and sugar. Not happy with this jump in weight at all. Tomorrow probably won’t be much better since I already had a butter croissant from Starbucks this morning with my coffee.
    Day 12 – Sat March 18 -- DNW
    Day 13 – Sun March 19-- DNW
    Day 14 – Mon March 20-- 143.9 – Did not stick to plan over the weekend. Need to do better.

    Week 2 gain/loss: 1.10 lbs gain
    Challenge 15 gain/loss: .1 lb loss
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal: 5.9 lbs

    Day 15 – Tues March 21 -- 144.1
    Day 16 – Wed March 22 -- DNW
    Day 17 – Thur March 23 -- 143.1 – I’m surprised at this decrease. Of course I’ll take it but I’m sure tomorrow’s weigh-in will reflect my bad eating habits of the past week. I’d like to be at least 140-141 before my trip during the Easter weekend. Probably wishful thinking, eh?
    Day 18 – Fri March 24 -- 143.7 – I know this is still the result of the past week. I did a little better yesterday but not fully the way I should. Just trying hard not to completely undo my progress. Writing this out helps my mindset😊
    Day 19 – Sat March 25 --
    Day 20 – Sun March 26--
    Day 21 – Mon March 27--

    Aiming for a loss of 50 grams a day
    Day 1 87.3 kg I had what I call a 'sugar fest', I always do that at the start of losing weight, plus some fruit and crackers, I drank a lot of water in an attempt to battle the heat here, so I'm not surprised that my weight has increased...
    Day 2 87.6 on track? Probably. I am trying to go off sugar, but I am not too successful usually, be on the lookout for "x days without sugar" now and then. Today went alright, however from now on I am limiting myself to only 2 small packs of crackers, because I wasn't really hungry.
    I've decided to aim for 30 grams loss a day since I'm in a new environment now, sharing food and I don't really know what level of hunger to aim for, I'll increase it later
    Day 3 87.3 on track? Probably. Today was a good day, I probably ate under maintenance, although I wonder if my weight loss is just my body emptying out since I splurged in Day 0. Against my better judgement (done this soooo many times) I plotted on my spreadsheet and I'm guessing May 30th next year is goal day. Mark your calendar.
    Day 4 86.8 on track, I think I ate too much today, I wasn't really hungry unless I thought about food
    Day 5 87.5 on track, spreadsheet trendline says I am losing 30 grams a day which is exactly what I am meant to be losing right now, I didn't eat under maintenance, a bit of emotional eating, I need to decide what I am going to eat in the morning and stick to it
    From now I'll post the weight and then number of grams a day I'm losing as told by my spreadsheet
    Day 6 87.4, 0 g/day, the last few days my weight has increased dramatically, I decided that I needed to cut back a lot and that happened today
    Day 7 86.8, 50 g/day > 30 = good, I ate reasonably well, although I only drank two water bottles instead of the usual 3, so maybe my weight tomorrow will be lower than expected
    Day 8 86.6, 105 g/day > 30 = good, I controlled my eating, and ate less than maintenance, also had 3 water bottles
    Day 9 86.8, 104 g/day > 30 = good, I think maybe I ate too much, it's hard to know though
    *** half a kilogram lost, 23 kilograms to lose, goal day estimated at 30th May 2024 ***
    Day 10 87.0, 89 g/day > 30 = good, I definitely ate too much, plus some salty food so I expect to see a gain tomorrow
    *** 10 day update: it's pretty easy to lose 30 grams a day, and I did find it easy. These 10 days haven't been stressful at all. I think I 'emptied out' a lot which is why my numbers are greater than 30 grams. I could stay at 30 grams but it would take an extra year almost, so I'm going up to the next step - 35 grams a day ***
    Day 11 87.6, 37 g/day > 35 = good, I think I ate too much today, which would mean two days in a row, I really need to undereat for at least a few days or else
    Day 12 87.6, 32 g/day < 35 = bad
    *** Update - so I've just had a major life change and as you probably know, major life changes are bad for weight loss. I don't want to pause the weight loss, but I do want to keep losing, so I'll just aim for one kilogram a month, I rate I feel I can manage while undergoing major life changes, this gets me to goal weight on 5th February 2025. If I speed things up somewhat I can reach goal weight 1st Jan 2025 which means 4 years exactly to lose 32 kg. So I'm trying to lose 23 kg / 654 days = 35.2 grams a day ***
    Day 13 87.3, 2.2 g/day < 35.2 = quite bad, I need to get into serious mode for a while,
    Day 14 87.4, still need to turn the ship around since according to my spreadsheet, I'm gaining right now
    Day 15 87.1, I'm losing (finally) but it's taking a while to turn the ship around
    Day 16 86.7, things are going well it seems
    Day 17 86.6, going well
    Day 18 86.4, still going well
    *** half a kilogram lost, 22.5 kilograms to lose, goal day estimated at 31st December 2024 ***
    Day 19 86.1 going well it seems

    @Queen_of_Lean

    A fruit day on Fridays. Hmm.
    I feel like I need a shake up going forward, maybe I should try one day a week of something like that.
    How many calories do you get on that day? I guess 11-12 apples or some such would get you over 1,000. Do you feel terribly hungry on those days?

    @deepwoodslady

    I'm sorry that you had to go to the Principal's office.
    Like...when you are feeling that bad the last thing that you want to do it get dressed, get in the vehicle and sit in a waiting room somewhere. Sheesh.

    When I had messaged work when I had tested positive for Covid it was suggested that I get to a doctor. Like...what? Contagious, can't stand up or stay awake, definitely don't want to get dressed or try to drive.

    What would a doctor have done for you anyway had you actually been well enough to get your tush out the door?

    I hope that you don't get too much fallout on the scale in the coming days from your binge.
    Chase that dgs around : - )

    Hi everyone.
    I am Dawn. 5'2", 62 years old.
    My BMI and stuff like that shows my optimum healthy weight should be between 110 and 120.

    I have steadily gained in all but one of the last bunch of 100s (gained 2.2 pounds this past one)
    I need to turn that around.
    I am not cutting out any food groups, or anything at all really because I want weight loss to be sustainable for life. I have learned to have less of certain things, and have moved some other stuff to once per week or once per 3 months (Ribs, very fattening). If I thought that I couldn't have them at all I believe that it would be worse. For the most part I eat very healthy foods.
    I have had quite a bit of success since I started MFP October 28.18, but this past year has been an almost 15 pound gain after being in the 130s for 2 years.
    I am into my biggest pair of pants and have no desire to buy bigger pants. I have lots of cute clothes that I was wearing at 130, and at that point I was driving hard to get into the 120s and beyond.

    I love this long length of 100 days, and seeing how each week is going,

    As always, I am open to suggestions. I think most of us have tried everything at this junction.
    Calories in vs. Calories out really should work though.

    I have made a decision to limit restaurant food to 6 times per year since I seem to gain a few pounds each time which could take 3-6 months to get back off from one visit.
    Rolling total so far: 2 out of the 6

    Best of luck to everyone.


    1st week goal weight: 142.2 - Start weight from the last 100 and go from there.
    1st week actual weight: 142.4 - Started the (short) week at 143.4
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 3055, 756.25 average over 4 days, back to work and reflected in my weight loss. The corrected weekly calendar is now on page 2.

    2nd week goal weight: 142.2 or less - Still wanting to get back to the start weight from the previous 100
    2nd week actual weight: 142.6 - Started the week (high) at 145.0 after a restaurant meal of salad and grilled chicken.
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 2553 - Average of 364.7 (had a day in the red)

    3rd week goal weight: 139.2
    3rd week actual weight: 141.0. Started the week at 141.2
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4913. Average over 7 days 701.85 - I knew that I had burned a lot.

    Day 19 – Sat March 25 - 142.0 - Restaurant food result, my second outing of my planned 6 for the year. I will try to eat very little today, but days off are always more difficult for me, more time to eat.
    Day 20 – Sun March 26
    Day 21 – Mon March 27
    Day 22 – Tues March 28
    Day 23 – Wed March 29
    Day 24 – Thurs March 30
    Day 25 – Fri March 31

    4th week goal weight: 139.2 - plugging this number in until I hit it - too lofty for this week methinks
    4th week actual weight: Started the week at 142.0, 2nd out of 6 restaurant visits for the year.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP):

    Start weight of the 100: 143.4, up 1.2 from the start weight of the previous 100, 142.2

    @dawnbgethealthy Yes, yes, yes. This is me and my life now. Up until just over 2 years ago I was working at my motels, living on the grounds of one of them in my home. I was open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, ESPECIALLY holidays. I was at my lowest weight in over 20 years but I still worked at it. I worked my *kitten* off, while also dancing, hiking, and planned walking like you wouldn't believe! I reached at least 15000 steps per day just from work alone. To reach 25000 or 30000 wasn't a stretch.

    Now I sit here with my heart condition and my diabetes out of control. I sit here with my refrigerator(s) and freezer(s) in my face everyday since I have retired. Also my walk-in pantry, full cabinets and tri-fold pantries just packed full of food. I shop for me but also my son. My daughter who stays here very often (several days per week), my grandson I babysit and my other children and grandchildren who visit. Even after 2 years of being retired, I am still trying to learn how to be around the food all day and not partake every given bored moment. No one told me I would need to prepare for this. By last June I was up 34 pounds from my weight just a couple of years prior during my working years.

    Now I must contend with the healthy issues but still try to get healthier in every other way (including my weight) in order to be able to "get back out there". You are my age. Prepare yourself for retirement, not just financially, but with the freedoms you will have, including with food and social situations. It's tough! But I know I can do this!

    I just wanted to tell you that in your case, it's only the weekends you have to contend with for now. Someday it will be a weekend every single day. Prepare! I truly wish someone would have pointed it out to me or given me a heads up on this side of retirement.

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ March 07, 2023 through June 14, 2023
    My Name is Donna, Age 62. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    My mini-challenge is to lose 10 pounds by Easter 2023. I started my efforts on Dec. 10th weighing 198.4. My wish is to weigh 188.4 by Easter April 9th, 2023. That gives me about 4 months to lose 10 pounds. Sounds easy but, trust me, it won’t be. Especially when outside exercise is so limited for me this slippery time of year!

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

    Day 17-03/23-188.4-(Trend weight 190.0)


    Day 18-03/24-188.0-(Trend weight 189.8) My good choices finally caught up with the scale today from the days earlier in the week. But yesterday was a bit of a binge. I lost all control. It was fueled by emotions as I was called into the “principal’s office” at the cardiac rehab and told that I should have went to the hospital with the bp drops, or at the very least, contacted one of my doctors. My readings that had improved by Sunday night were still good enough on Monday morning to go. However, yesterday evening at home, they dropped yet again and stayed that way all night. I began my emotional eating binge and didn’t stop until midnight. I discontinued the night time bp med again (Lisinopril) but continue to take the Metroprolol (prolly spelled wrong) in the mornings because it is not just a bp med but it also helps the heart to actually pump. My blood pressure is now okay again today. I am babysitting my DGS again today so hopefully I will continue to feel well. In any case, overeating foods, especially those that are bad for my diabetes, are not going to help. Emotional eating never solves the problem. This realization is helping me, at least for today. I hope it helps someone else too.


    Day 19-03/25-187.2-(Trend weight 189.5) Snow storm today. 8 – 10” expected and it looks like the numbers are right on target. On the weight front: I’m so glad to see a drop and also a downward trend weight after the binge on the night of the 23rd. Back on track! In regards to health, I ended up calling my cardiologist (on the advice of the aforementioned “principal”) because of the drop again in my bp. They agreed for me to stay off the one bp med (Lisinopril) through the weekend. Doctor was not in for the day. They wanted me to record bp’s several times a day on Fri, Sat and Sun then stop in at the Heart Failure Clinic (love the name!) and let Cardiologist see them on Monday when I am back in the town where they are located (same town as my Rehab I go to on Mondays). They will then further advise. Possibly a different medication or stay off the one I stopped? I dunno. Of course, I am hoping that my weight loss (21 lbs down since my high weight last June) is affecting my medication doses for the positive. Is it possible that I’m not actually getting sicker but instead, getting HEALTHIER? It’s possible……. Wait until you hear about my glucose numbers these past few weeks. More on that tomorrow……

    I’m Teri
    Age 59, 5’4”

    Challenge Starting Weight: 144 lbs
    Challenge Goal Weight: 138lbs
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 130-133 lbs
    Challenge Ending Weight:
    Total Weight Loss for Challenge:
    Day 1 – Tues March 07 -- 144 – This is the same weight I started with on the last Challenge. There were many ups and downs on the scale but, alas, I’m right back where I started.
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 – 144.6 – I think this jump is still a result of going off track last week up until Sunday. This week’s goal is to bring down the inflammation.
    Day 3 – Thur March 09 – 144.4
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 – 142.9 – Happy to see this number on the scale this morning. I’ve been working on correcting what I undid last week with too much sugar & carbs. Just glad I was able to jump back on the wagon this week. Feeling less bloated. Yay! Still working on getting some exercise in though.
    Day 5 – Sat March 11 – 142.4
    Day 6 – Sun March 12 – 142.6 Ate later than usual last night. Also had a glass and a half of wine.
    Day 7 – Mon March 13 – 142.8 Greek food for lunch yesterday with a girlfriend, then a visit to the Cat Café. Of course, I came home with one of those things.  McDonald’s for dinner. Not a good choice but didn’t overdo it. Just a McChicken sandwich and small fries.

    Week 1: 1.2 lbs lost
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal: 4.8

    Day 8 – Tues March 14 -- 142.5
    Day 9 – Wed March 15 -- 141.5
    Day 10 – Thur March 16 -- 141.9
    Day 11 – Fri March 17 -- 142.4 Still consistent with IF, but this jump is definitely a combination of eating too much even when not hungry, adding more carbs than usual, and having dinner last night from Panda Express is which is high in sodium and sugar. Not happy with this jump in weight at all. Tomorrow probably won’t be much better since I already had a butter croissant from Starbucks this morning with my coffee.
    Day 12 – Sat March 18 -- DNW
    Day 13 – Sun March 19-- DNW
    Day 14 – Mon March 20-- 143.9 – Did not stick to plan over the weekend. Need to do better.

    Week 2 gain/loss: 1.10 lbs gain
    Challenge 15 gain/loss: .1 lb loss
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal: 5.9 lbs

    Day 15 – Tues March 21 -- 144.1
    Day 16 – Wed March 22 -- DNW
    Day 17 – Thur March 23 -- 143.1 – I’m surprised at this decrease. Of course I’ll take it but I’m sure tomorrow’s weigh-in will reflect my bad eating habits of the past week. I’d like to be at least 140-141 before my trip during the Easter weekend. Probably wishful thinking, eh?
    Day 18 – Fri March 24 -- 143.7 – I know this is still the result of the past week. I did a little better yesterday but not fully the way I should. Just trying hard not to completely undo my progress. Writing this out helps my mindset😊
    Day 19 – Sat March 25 -- 142.5 – IF 18:6 yesterday. Stayed on track with eating: low carb, avoided refined sugar, whole foods. Need to work on getting some movement in. But happy with the scale this morning.
    Day 20 – Sun March 26--
    Day 21 – Mon March 27--

    Day 20-03/26-187.8-(Trend weight 189.3) Go figure! It was another very good day food-wise. Got in a bit of exercise but otherwise not a lot of activity as I still continue to baby my blood pressure so maybe that explains the uptick? Anyway…. I travel today to my DGS’s 4th birthday in another town. I usually don’t log when the food (and dessert) is out of my control or too complicated (even though logging is NEVER a bad idea). I do plan to enjoy the day. I’ve actually saved a few calories and carbs back over these past few days to help offset the damage at least a little. In regards to my glucose numbers (since last seeing the idiot dietician). My morning fasting numbers (usually the lowest of the day before food) was running 300-525. Those are EMERGENCY ROOM numbers for many but my body got very used to it and I actually didn’t even feel that bad. Since ignoring my dietician by counting my calories AND my carbs, incorporating some Intermittent fasting (against her advice) and doing what I know works FOR ME, my morning glucose readings are now 130-165. I think I could get them even lower if I tried because I have been eating sugar-free jello almost every night with sugar-free cool whip but they contain artificial sugars (which are not Natural sugar-free sugars) so they spike my glucose. I recently found on the Walmart website that they sell a keto friendly whipped topping that is made with monk fruit so I will start buying that when I’m out of town. I also found on Amazon that the vitamin company Swanson sells a sugar-free jello made with Erythitol (spelled wrong) and Stevia, both of which do not spike the glucose. It is double the price of Jello brand (it’s about @2.50 per small 4 serv box I think), but it will help my glucose numbers so I’m ordering a bunch. What I can’t yet give up is my nightly piece of Russell Stovers sugar-free dark chocolate candy which uses an artificial sweetener. I’m just not there yet. But progress is progress, right? I did learn to really enjoy the 90% dark cacao chocolate when I was on Keto. It was the Sam’s club brand but I haven’t been able to find it at Walmart lately so it’s just been me and Russell.

    Yes, I burn a great deal of calories while working, like you did.

    Retirement? I wish!! I don't see it in my cards unfortunately.
    I feel like if I could that I would be hiking more, dancing more, X-country skiing and stuff in the winters.
    Right now weekends are laundry, cleaning, stuff like that. I also have been dealing with an ankle that I have been resting on the weekends. My latest steroid shot in it a week ago seems to be taking, it is supposed to be 2-6 weeks, but it already is starting to feel better

    I haven't mentioned yet, but Foster Grant has terminated 100% of Canadian staff. Long story short, Essilor out of France, and Luxxotica out of Italy merged and absorbed the Foster Grant brand. They will be using a 3rd party to service the accounts, paying $10 an hour less than what I have been making. Pretty sure that I won't be going down that road.
    April 1st is the last day, so I will have to get yet another job, hopefully waitressing.
    I have been with the company for a very long time, and figured that I always would be. I am sad, I love the job, am good at the job, and loved working for the company for all of these years.
    Big change for me.

    Hi everyone.
    I am Dawn. 5'2", 62 years old.
    My BMI and stuff like that shows my optimum healthy weight should be between 110 and 120.

    I have steadily gained in all but one of the last bunch of 100s (gained 2.2 pounds this past one)
    I need to turn that around.
    I am not cutting out any food groups, or anything at all really because I want weight loss to be sustainable for life. I have learned to have less of certain things, and have moved some other stuff to once per week or once per 3 months (Ribs, very fattening). If I thought that I couldn't have them at all I believe that it would be worse. For the most part I eat very healthy foods.
    I have had quite a bit of success since I started MFP October 28.18, but this past year has been an almost 15 pound gain after being in the 130s for 2 years.
    I am into my biggest pair of pants and have no desire to buy bigger pants. I have lots of cute clothes that I was wearing at 130, and at that point I was driving hard to get into the 120s and beyond.

    I love this long length of 100 days, and seeing how each week is going,

    As always, I am open to suggestions. I think most of us have tried everything at this junction.
    Calories in vs. Calories out really should work though.

    I have made a decision to limit restaurant food to 6 times per year since I seem to gain a few pounds each time which could take 3-6 months to get back off from one visit.
    Rolling total so far: 2 out of the 6

    Best of luck to everyone.


    1st week goal weight: 142.2 - Start weight from the last 100 and go from there.
    1st week actual weight: 142.4 - Started the (short) week at 143.4
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 3055, 756.25 average over 4 days, back to work and reflected in my weight loss. The corrected weekly calendar is now on page 2.

    2nd week goal weight: 142.2 or less - Still wanting to get back to the start weight from the previous 100
    2nd week actual weight: 142.6 - Started the week (high) at 145.0 after a restaurant meal of salad and grilled chicken.
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 2553 - Average of 364.7 (had a day in the red)

    3rd week goal weight: 139.2
    3rd week actual weight: 141.0. Started the week at 141.2
    Excess calories burned (in the green): 4913. Average over 7 days 701.85 - I knew that I had burned a lot.

    Day 19 – Sat March 25 - 142.0 - Restaurant food result, my second outing of my planned 6 for the year. I will try to eat very little today, but days off are always more difficult for me, more time to eat.
    Day 20 – Sun March 26 - 141.8 - Beautiful day here today. Planning to get out on a trail around 2pm, I will get some Fitness Marshall in before that. Dinner is prepped for tonight and tomorrow. Heading into a very busy work week tomorrow.
    Day 21 – Mon March 27
    Day 22 – Tues March 28
    Day 23 – Wed March 29
    Day 24 – Thurs March 30
    Day 25 – Fri March 31

    4th week goal weight: 139.2 - plugging this number in until I hit it - too lofty for this week methinks
    4th week actual weight: Started the week at 142.0, 2nd out of 6 restaurant visits for the year.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP):

    Start weight of the 100: 143.4, up 1.2 from the start weight of the previous 100, 142.2

    I’m Teri
    Age 59, 5’4”

    Challenge Starting Weight: 144 lbs
    Challenge Goal Weight: 138lbs
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 130-133 lbs
    Challenge Ending Weight:
    Total Weight Loss for Challenge:
    Day 1 – Tues March 07 -- 144 – This is the same weight I started with on the last Challenge. There were many ups and downs on the scale but, alas, I’m right back where I started.
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 – 144.6 – I think this jump is still a result of going off track last week up until Sunday. This week’s goal is to bring down the inflammation.
    Day 3 – Thur March 09 – 144.4
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 – 142.9 – Happy to see this number on the scale this morning. I’ve been working on correcting what I undid last week with too much sugar & carbs. Just glad I was able to jump back on the wagon this week. Feeling less bloated. Yay! Still working on getting some exercise in though.
    Day 5 – Sat March 11 – 142.4
    Day 6 – Sun March 12 – 142.6 Ate later than usual last night. Also had a glass and a half of wine.
    Day 7 – Mon March 13 – 142.8 Greek food for lunch yesterday with a girlfriend, then a visit to the Cat Café. Of course, I came home with one of those things.  McDonald’s for dinner. Not a good choice but didn’t overdo it. Just a McChicken sandwich and small fries.

    Week 1: 1.2 lbs lost
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal: 4.8

    Day 8 – Tues March 14 -- 142.5
    Day 9 – Wed March 15 -- 141.5
    Day 10 – Thur March 16 -- 141.9
    Day 11 – Fri March 17 -- 142.4 Still consistent with IF, but this jump is definitely a combination of eating too much even when not hungry, adding more carbs than usual, and having dinner last night from Panda Express is which is high in sodium and sugar. Not happy with this jump in weight at all. Tomorrow probably won’t be much better since I already had a butter croissant from Starbucks this morning with my coffee.
    Day 12 – Sat March 18 -- DNW
    Day 13 – Sun March 19-- DNW
    Day 14 – Mon March 20-- 143.9 – Did not stick to plan over the weekend. Need to do better.

    Week 2 gain/loss: 1.10 lbs gain
    Challenge 15 gain/loss: .1 lb loss
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal: 5.9 lbs

    Day 15 – Tues March 21 -- 144.1
    Day 16 – Wed March 22 -- DNW
    Day 17 – Thur March 23 -- 143.1 – I’m surprised at this decrease. Of course I’ll take it but I’m sure tomorrow’s weigh-in will reflect my bad eating habits of the past week. I’d like to be at least 140-141 before my trip during the Easter weekend. Probably wishful thinking, eh?
    Day 18 – Fri March 24 -- 143.7 – I know this is still the result of the past week. I did a little better yesterday but not fully the way I should. Just trying hard not to completely undo my progress. Writing this out helps my mindset😊
    Day 19 – Sat March 25 -- 142.5 – IF 18:6 yesterday. Stayed on track with eating: low carb, avoided refined sugar, whole foods. Need to work on getting some movement in. But happy with the scale this morning.
    Day 20 – Sun March 26-- 141.6 – Whoa! Where did this come from? I did stay on track with what I ate yesterday, tried to be mindful of not spiking my insulin too much. But I think what’s helping is the added two hours to my IF regimen (18:6, instead of 16:8). Not sure I can do this consistently, but I will certainly aim for it daily.
    Day 21 – Mon March 27--

    I didn't expect that gain after the weekebs, since I managed to keep my calorie intake under control and generally I'm happy with myself (as opposed to having cheat days on Sundays). I hope it's just something temporaral, which will go away quickly. Nevertheless, I mark my W3 goal as completed, because I was below 59.5 on Saturday.

    @dawnbgethealthy

    I'm doing the fruit days each Friday for 2-3 years already, I'm also doing longer periods during the summer (20 days on fruit + 10 days gradually getting back to normal food). There is a clinic in Bulgaria where they practice this mild hunger treatment and successfully treat many illnesses like high blood pressure, diabetes etc. Their principle is to eat up 1.5 kg fruit per day (including bananas) and drink herbal tea wirh a teaspoon of honey 3 times per day.

    On my weekly fruit days I'm also eating 30-50 grams of nuts, if I feel very hungry and my calorie intake is between 900 and 1200, but the result is great!
