    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 with 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!

    I am really intrigued by this. Thank you for sharing. You must poop like crazy lol, but also must feel great the next day and have glowing skin.
    I am glad that you can have bananas, since they are more filling.
    I wonder if you could do this with the addition of vegetables?

    I followed "Fit for Life" (and still kind of do) which is nothing but fruit before noon. It is a book that came out I think in the late 1970s.

    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 - 142.2 - Last fallout from the weekend's food choices. I sure do get a great deal of Fitness Marshall dances in on my days off, plus I have time for some outdoor activities. Back to my weekday eating habits Sun-Thursday. Typical dinner of approx 300 calories, 1/2 of a spicy sausage, my own potatoes and onions topped with sour cream, brussels sprouts:

    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-- 141.1 – IF 18:6 yesterday and stayed on track with eating. 3rd day in a row. I need to keep this up. I even had a little glass of some margarita last night. Soooo good.

    Week 3 gain/loss: 2.8 lb loss
    Challenge 15 gain/loss: 2.9 lbs loss
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal: 3.10 lbs

    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!

    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

    Goal This Round: 176.2
    Ending Weight: xxxxx

    Day 19-03/25-187.2-(Trend weight 189.5)


    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.


    Day 21-03/27-DNW-(Trend weight DNW) Nope. I’m not even gonna look! The birthday party was very nice and so was the food. I have 4 out of 5 days of travel this week which is never good for me. Also, my bp dropped badly again so I am back to laying around (no exercise allowed) babying it until the cardiologist figures out what to do. The one thing I’ve learned is that if I don’t move, I don’t lose. In fact, if I don’t move, I gain. Even when my calories and carbs are kept low. So I am going to wait at least five days to weigh in again. I will check in daily with all your posts. I will do my best to make good choices during my travel days. I can’t bear to be discouraged right now. I’m going through enough as it is!

    Oh no!
    Keep tracking, even if you don't feel like weighing.
    I know that the travel is tough for your willpower. You have made so much progress.

    Yes, please check in and let us know what the docs all say.

    Big hugs!!

    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 - 142.2 - Last fallout from the weekend's food choices. I sure do get a great deal of Fitness Marshall dances in on my days off, plus I have time for some outdoor activities. Back to my weekday eating habits Sun-Thursday. Typical dinner of approx 300 calories, 1/2 of a spicy sausage, my own potatoes and onions topped with sour cream, brussels sprouts.
    Day 22 – Tues March 28 - 142.0 - had hoped for a bigger drop, but no TMI yesterday for me, which is rare. My orange and apple that I normally eat at work weren't touched, and no fruit on Sunday, I will get back to that habit.
    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

    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!

    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

    Day 21-03/27-DNW-(Trend weight DNW) Nope. I’m not even gonna look! The birthday party was very nice and so was the food. I have 4 out of 5 days of travel this week which is never good for me. Also, my bp dropped badly again so I am back to laying around (no exercise allowed) babying it until the cardiologist figures out what to do. The one thing I’ve learned is that if I don’t move, I don’t lose. In fact, if I don’t move, I gain. Even when my calories and carbs are kept low. So I am going to wait at least five days to weigh in again. I will check in daily with all your posts. I will do my best to make good choices during my travel days. I can’t bear to be discouraged right now. I’m going through enough as it is!

    Day 22-03/28-DNW-(Trend weight DNW) I am heading north today to get my tax package to my accountant that moved quite far. I have not been able to take water pill due to bp drops as well as all this travel. All the more reason I am not weighing as I am bloating bigger. I have massaged my ankles and abdomen this morning in the hopes that it will help. Yet more restaurants today too along with lots of sitting. I am not allowed to exercise right now anyway so I suppose it’s okay. Hopefully the cardiologist will get back with me sometime today on the bp numbers I dropped off yesterday. I will read all the current posts later tonight. In the meantime, have a great day everyone!

    I am really intrigued by this. Thank you for sharing. You must poop like crazy lol, but also must feel great the next day and have glowing skin.
    I am glad that you can have bananas, since they are more filling.
    I wonder if you could do this with the addition of vegetables?

    I followed "Fit for Life" (and still kind of do) which is nothing but fruit before noon. It is a book that came out I think in the late 1970s.

    @dawnbgethealthy

    You can definitely eat tomatoes and avocado (a small amount), since they are fruits. I think it would be OK to eat veggies as well, since doctors in the clinic here recommend replacing one of the fruit intake with carrots for people with diabetes. They also recommend eating one type of fruit per meal. Generally the plan is as follows:

    8:00 herbal tea with a tsp of honey
    10:00 300-400 grams of fruit (one type)
    12:00 herbal tea with a tsp of honey
    14:00 300-400 grams of fruit (one type)
    16:00 herbal tea with a tsp of honey
    18:00 300-400 grams of fruit (one type)
    20:00 herbal tea with a tsp of honey

    You can add lemon juice to the tea.

    As for pooping, it's just the opposite, especially if you do a longer period. People often need to take pills like Triphala or other herbs to make sure they get rid of the toxins regularly.

    I’m Teri
    Age 59, 5’4”

    Incorporating intermittent fasting into my regimen is my greatest take away from the last challenge. It has REALLY helped get my eating under control!

    My goals for this challenge—
    Normal day-to-day: stick to an IF schedule of 16:8, eat whole foods as much as possible, stay low-carb and avoid refined sugar, exercise. No calorie counting or measuring food. I also need to get away from the all-or-nothing mindset, by being able to indulge here and there with no regrets and then getting right back to it the next day.

    I’m a slow loser which can be discouraging. My focus needs to be more on health & sustainability.

    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-- 141.1 – IF 18:6 yesterday and stayed on track with eating. 3rd day in a row. I need to keep this up. I even had a little glass of some margarita. Soooo good.

    Week 3 gain/loss: 2.8 lb loss
    Challenge 15 gain/loss: 2.9 lbs loss
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal of 138 lbs: 3.10 lbs

    Day 22 – Tues March 28 -- 141.8 – IF 18:6. Had some white rice with dinner, and two cookies last night. I don’t regret it. 😊 Hopefully, this is the only spike I’ll see because of it.

    I'm up a little today, not much movement from the scale these last 3-4 days even though I've stayed under my calories/macros. Told hubby it's probably due to lack of daily poo event LOL. Seems like my gut has decided to stop 'going'. Maybe tomorrow 😎. I'm a little worried for Wednesday food diary.... Neighbors are having us to dinner tomorrow night but they are making spaghetti. Will be careful putting 1-1.5 c. On my plate but will see how it pans out. 😯worried🤨

    Grrrrr. It's Wednesday morning and I'm feel frustrated. Scale isn't cooperating and now I'm up 1# this morning - I have been at or below my cal/macro goals. I better see a bid drop before Friday! 😉

    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 - 142.2 - Last fallout from the weekend's food choices. I sure do get a great deal of Fitness Marshall dances in on my days off, plus I have time for some outdoor activities. Back to my weekday eating habits Sun-Thursday. Typical dinner of approx 300 calories, 1/2 of a spicy sausage, my own potatoes and onions topped with sour cream, brussels sprouts.
    Day 22 – Tues March 28 - 142.0 - had hoped for a bigger drop, but no TMI yesterday for me, which is rare. My orange and apple that I normally eat at work weren't touched, and no fruit on Sunday, I will get back to that habit.
    Day 23 – Wed March 29 - 141.8 - Working late-ish the next couple of days, so dinner will be later than I like it to be.
    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

    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!

    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

    Day 22-03/28-DNW-(Trend weight DNW) I am heading north today to get my tax package to my accountant that moved quite far. I have not been able to take water pill due to bp drops as well as all this travel. All the more reason I am not weighing as I am bloating bigger. I have massaged my ankles and abdomen this morning in the hopes that it will help. Yet more restaurants today too along with lots of sitting. I am not allowed to exercise right now anyway so I suppose it’s okay. Hopefully the cardiologist will get back with me sometime today on the bp numbers I dropped off yesterday. I will read all the current posts later tonight. In the meantime, have a great day everyone!

    Day 23-03/29-DNW-(Trend weight DNW) I woke up to yet more snow today already. Finally, a day at home! Feeling bloated and miserable. Pushing water and better choices today.

    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:

    Incorporating intermittent fasting into my regimen is my greatest take away from the last challenge. It has REALLY helped get my eating under control!

    My goals for this challenge—
    Normal day-to-day: stick to an IF schedule of 16:8, eat whole foods as much as possible, stay low-carb and avoid refined sugar, exercise. No calorie counting or measuring food. I also need to get away from the all-or-nothing mindset, by being able to indulge here and there with no regrets and then getting right back to it the next day.

    I’m a slow loser which can be discouraging. My focus needs to be more on health & sustainability.
    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-- 141.1 – IF 18:6 yesterday and stayed on track with eating. 3rd day in a row. I need to keep this up. I even had a little glass of some margarita. Soooo good.

    Week 3 gain/loss: 2.8 lb loss
    Challenge 15 gain/loss: 2.9 lbs loss
    Balance to lose to meet challenge goal of 138 lbs: 3.10 lbs

    Day 22 – Tues March 28 -- 141.8 – IF 18:6. Had some white rice with dinner, and two cookies last night. I don’t regret it. 😊 Hopefully, this is the only spike I’ll see because of it.
