    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.

    4th week goal weight: 139.2 - plugging this number in until I hit it - too lofty for this week methinks
    4th week actual weight: 141.0 Started the week at 142.0, 2nd out of 6 restaurant visits for the year.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP): 5744 - Average over 7 days: 820.57 - Not a typical week, but seemed to have helped with weight loss (as well as not having much time to eat)

    5th week goal weight: 141.0
    5th week actual weight: 141.0 - Started the week at 141.0 - Once every 3 month Ribs consumed for this 100, glad that I got that off in one week.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP) - 4636 - Average of 662.28 over 7 days

    Day 33 – Sat April 08 - 140.8 - Normally I go outside of my weekday foods on Fridays and Saturdays. I had 6 wings last night and adult beverages. We'll see what I get into today. Lots of healthy food in the house for Sunday to Thursday.
    Day 34 – Sun April 09 - 144.2 - What??? Argh!!
    Day 35 – Mon April 10 - 144.2 - 1083 calories consumed, lots of activity between workouts and digging in the garden. C'mon body, don't be holding on to stuff like this.
    Day 36 – Tues April 11 - 145.2 - Another whole pound. I feel like giving up. I won't though. I just don't get it.
    Day 37 – Wed April 12 - 144.8 - Is it because I am so stressed out from losing my favourite job and unsure how my house expenses and debts are going to be paid? Is my body holding on to weight because I am upset? Who knows. I do know that I do not like this huge jump of 4 pounds.
    Day 38 – Thurs April 13 - 144.0 - 4 pounds off by May 10? Sure I am in. Obviously I can easily put 4 pounds on in one day, and 4 pounds has usually taken me 1 year to take off but my weight is all over the place these days.
    Day 39 – Fri April 14

    6th week goal weight 139.8
    6th week actual weight: Started the week at 140.8
    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

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

    Day 36-04/11-192.8-(Trend weight 191.8)

    Day 37-04/12-193.2-(Trend weight 192.0) It was a good day yesterday. Diet was on point and I got plenty of steps/movement/exercise raking the yard and burning leaves. I will be working on that project over the course of many days. I think the uptick is just the “days later fallout” or “hangover”, if you will from days ago during the holiday and travel. Staying the course and hoping it will start reflecting that soon. The 180’s are pretty angry right now that I left them in the dust. My biggest disappointment is that I have to lose 9 pounds in order to have lost the 4 pounds for my mini-challenge. Ugh! Can I lose 9 in a month when my last challenge was to lose 10 in 4 months (and I made it by the skin of my teeth?) Well, I know I won't if I don't try, right? Who's with me on this mini challenge? 4 pounds by May 10th!

    Day 38-04/13-192.2-(Trend weight 192.5) Wow, did I ever get hungry last night! Usually the protein in chicken breast holds me over much better than it did last night. I ate an ounce of almonds, a piece of my sugar-free Russell Stover’s chocolate and drank my water. I must save the extra calories and carbs for those situations so I don’t go into a binge. Crisis Averted! Chris @cpanus and Dawn @dawnbgethealthy Let's Go!!!!!

    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.
    Day 23 – Wed March 29 -- 142.2
    Day 24 – Thur March 30 -- 141.1 – Happy about this number but only did IF 16:8 yesterday. Couldn’t hold out for the additional 2 hours. Was extra hungry and gave in to cravings. Shucks.
    Day 25 – Fri March 31 -- 141.9

    Day 37 – Wed Apr 12 -- 142.5 – IF 17:7 yesterday. Back on track with eating habits. Light cycling class on my Peloton to ease back into exercising.
    Day 38 – Thur Apr 13 -- 141.5 – IF 16:8 yesterday. No exercise. Not sure I believe the scale this morning, but I hope it’s true.

    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.
    Day 23 – Wed March 29 -- 142.2
    Day 24 – Thur March 30 -- 141.1 – Happy about this number but only did IF 16:8 yesterday. Couldn’t hold out for the additional 2 hours. Was extra hungry and gave in to cravings. Shucks.

    67yrs 5'10"
    Start 10/01/2022. 308.8
    UGW. 160.00

    This has been an off week for me. Too many eh-eh foods the last week.
    Weight jumped up there last weekend but luckily I've been able to drop some of it; plus, I reached a new low since starting 10/01/22. So close to that next decade of numbers! We leave May 27 for our cruise...6 weeks. I won't make my cruise goal of 220 but I'm pleased that even after discovering it wasn't in the cards for me, I didn't give up.

    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.

    4th week goal weight: 139.2 - plugging this number in until I hit it - too lofty for this week methinks
    4th week actual weight: 141.0 Started the week at 142.0, 2nd out of 6 restaurant visits for the year.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP): 5744 - Average over 7 days: 820.57 - Not a typical week, but seemed to have helped with weight loss (as well as not having much time to eat)

    5th week goal weight: 141.0
    5th week actual weight: 141.0 - Started the week at 141.0 - Once every 3 month Ribs consumed for this 100, glad that I got that off in one week.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP) - 4636 - Average of 662.28 over 7 days

    6th week goal weight 139.8
    6th week actual weight: 143.6 - Started the week at 140.8, crazy weight gain at one point 4.4 pounds
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP: 2892, 413.14 average over 7 days

    Day 40 – Sat April 15 - 144.8 - This was at 2am. The last time that I got up so early I didn't weigh, thinking that I would be going back to bed but didn't. I doubt that this number is very accurate, but I have had 2 glasses of water and 2 coffees since then so won't be weighing again today.
    Day 41 – Sun April 16
    Day 42 – Mon April 17
    Day 43 – Tues April 18
    Day 44 – Wed April 19
    Day 45 – Thurs April 20
    Day 46 – Fri April 21

    7th week goal weight - Mini goal of 4 pounds by May 10th would take me to 136.8, seems unrealistic because of last week's gains, but I will plug that number in as a goal.
    7th week actual weight
    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

    Day 39-04/14-189.4-(Trend weight 192.2) Wow! Back in the 80’s but barely. Yesterday was water pill day so that helped. I only take it about 3 times per week. My feet and ankles were filled and then near my calves were the VICE GRIPS that was SQUEEZING so tight and making sure none of the fluid moved! Feeling much relief today! I stuck to diet plan well yesterday and worked again on strenuous projects in the yard burning many calories. More yard work scheduled for today. In regards to today’s weight, I am only 1.2 lbs above my starting weight for my mini-goal listed above. Gotta get there so I can really start my personal challenge to lose the 4 pounds by my birthday in May. I really want this as it will put me so much closer to the 170’s and so much further from the 190’s.

    Day 40-04/15-191.0-(Trend weight 192.0) Ugh! Had fish fry yesterday at 4 PM, leftovers at midnight when I got hungry. All fit within my allowances but a late meal and a early weigh-in (got up early to babysit DGS) really did me in. Too early for my TMI too. Lots of yard work and calorie burn yesterday. Hopefully I will see a drop tomorrow.

    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.
    Day 23 – Wed March 29 -- 142.2
    Day 24 – Thur March 30 -- 141.1 – Happy about this number but only did IF 16:8 yesterday. Couldn’t hold out for the additional 2 hours. Was extra hungry and gave in to cravings. Shucks.
    Day 25 – Fri March 31 -- 141.9
    Day 26 – Sat Apr 1 --
    Day 27 – Sun Apr 2 --
    Day 28 – Mon Apr 3 --

    Day 38 – Thur Apr 13 -- 141.5 – IF 16:8 yesterday. No exercise. Not sure I believe the scale this morning, but I hope it’s true.
    Day 39 – Fri Apr 14 -- 142.3 – Oh well.
    Day 40 – Sat Apr 15 -- 141.6 – Went a little off-track yesterday. ½ of a muffin with my morning coffee. I usually don’t eat anything until the afternoon. And we all know how big those muffins from Costco are. Also had some white rice with dinner. I did manage to get some exercise in which I’m happy about.

    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
    Day 20 86.0 still going well, how long can it last?
    Day 21 86.1 I drank more water than previously, so expecting a gain tomorrow maybe
    Day 22 86.6 Gain as expected
    Day 23 86.9 Salty food (hopefully just that)
    Day 24 87.2, 38 grams a day loss which is on track
    Day 25 87.3, on track
    Day 26 87.6, for the last 13 days my weight has been dropping then gaining, let's see if I can get it losing again
    Day 27 86.6 a big drop because I controlled my eating yesterday, however I'm at 22 g/day when I should be at 35 g/day, so I need a few or so days of seriously controlled eating
    Day 28 86.1 another big drop, I'm at 26 g/day
    Day 29 85.7 I'm at 32 g/day which is almost where I'm meant to be, but right now those numbers vary wildly day to day
    Day 30 85.7 On track - 37 g/day
    Day 31 86.1 On track - I've given up on the trendline on my spreadsheet, since it's all over the place quite regularly. From now on, I've got a line which starts at 87.3 (first weight) and drops by 35.2 grams a day. So if I'm at or below that line, I'm on track. If not, I'm not on track
    Day 32 86.7 Off track, it's official - I have zero self-control when it comes to sugar
    Day 33 86.5
    Day 34 86.9
    Day 35 86.9
    Day 36 87.2
    Day 37 87.2 20 g/day < 35, I moved to a hot country 4 months ago and I'm still struggling with the heat and its effect on my eczema, and sweat itchiness, I've decided to experiment with increasing my weight loss, also I'm carrying about 22 kg of insulation, so getting rid of that might help. I've also noticed that my right knee doesn't act the way my left knee acts when I'm standing, I'll see a physiotherapist when I'm back in NZ but who knows, maybe carrying 11 kg extra weight on that knee isn't helping. So I'm going to slowly increase the rate I'm meant to be losing, in the next month or two. I can't suddenly speed up my weight loss, I find it very stressful.
    Day 38 87.2 17 g/day < 35 I'm increasing my water intake so as expected, my weight hasn't dropped although I didn't eat much yesterday
    Day 39 86.3
    Day 40 86.2
    Day 41 86.1 20 g/day < 35 I'm kind of doing 'emergency weight loss' because my measurements haven't dropped in a few days and I want them to reduce for the Give Me 10 Days challenge, I expect at least 2.5 cm drop for each round of that challenge and I went 3 days in a row without any change

    Day 40-04/15-191.0-(Trend weight 192.0) Ugh! Had fish fry yesterday at 4 PM, leftovers at midnight when I got hungry. All fit within my allowances but a late meal and a early weigh-in (got up early to babysit DGS) really did me in. Too early for my TMI too. Lots of yard work and calorie burn yesterday. Hopefully I will see a drop tomorrow.

    Day 41-04/16-187.4-(Trend weight 191.6) Firmly back in the 180’s so I have scratched off the 190’s so hopefully they are scratched for good! Thunderstorms today, snow tomorrow and Tuesday. Ugh! So much for the yardwork I’ve been trying to get done! It sure has helped burn calories though when I could get out there. I’m feeling pretty good about my scale results today. I’m on my way to my 4 pound mini-challenge (posted above). I plan on getting there, my friends. Even if I wiggle all around it afterward (like I have the Easter challenge loss). I can’t stay there if I don’t, at the very least, get there first right? I’m running like he!! From the 190’s.

    Do you remember last spring when I was doing so many sessions of digging, pushing, pulling, squatting, lunging, throwing shovel-fulls of dirt to get my potato garden started and then my sugar snap pea garden?
    I am pretty sure that I gained a bunch of weight then too, like my body was like "too much effort, better hold on to these pounds".

    I have been mystified by my weight gains until I thought about it.
    Anyway, those 2 big areas are as of yesterday evening complete : - ) Now to hopefully drop a bunch of pounds. Very sore this morning!

    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.

    4th week goal weight: 139.2 - plugging this number in until I hit it - too lofty for this week methinks
    4th week actual weight: 141.0 Started the week at 142.0, 2nd out of 6 restaurant visits for the year.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP): 5744 - Average over 7 days: 820.57 - Not a typical week, but seemed to have helped with weight loss (as well as not having much time to eat)

    5th week goal weight: 141.0
    5th week actual weight: 141.0 - Started the week at 141.0 - Once every 3 month Ribs consumed for this 100, glad that I got that off in one week.
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP) - 4636 - Average of 662.28 over 7 days

    6th week goal weight 139.8
    6th week actual weight: 143.6 - Started the week at 140.8, crazy weight gain at one point 4.4 pounds
    Excess exercise calories burned (in the green on MFP: 2892, 413.14 average over 7 days

    Day 40 – Sat April 15 - 144.8 - This was at 2am. The last time that I got up so early I didn't weigh, thinking that I would be going back to bed but didn't. I doubt that this number is very accurate, but I have had 2 glasses of water and 2 coffees since then so won't be weighing again today.
    Day 41 – Sun April 16 - 144.4 - Hoping for a woosh over the next couple of days.
    Day 42 – Mon April 17
    Day 43 – Tues April 18
    Day 44 – Wed April 19
    Day 45 – Thurs April 20
    Day 46 – Fri April 21

    7th week goal weight - Mini goal of 4 pounds by May 10th would take me to 136.8, seems unrealistic because of last week's gains, but I will plug that number in as a goal each week until I hit it.
    7th week actual weight
    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”

    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.
    Day 23 – Wed March 29 -- 142.2
    Day 24 – Thur March 30 -- 141.1 – Happy about this number but only did IF 16:8 yesterday. Couldn’t hold out for the additional 2 hours. Was extra hungry and gave in to cravings. Shucks.
    Day 25 – Fri March 31 -- 141.9
    Day 26 – Sat Apr 1 --

    Day 36 – Tues Apr 11 -- 144.4 – Back from vacation. This is my recovery week.
    Day 37 – Wed Apr 12 -- 142.5 – IF 17:7 yesterday. Back on track with eating habits. Light cycling class on my Peloton to ease back into exercising.
    Day 38 – Thur Apr 13 -- 141.5 – IF 16:8 yesterday. No exercise. Not sure I believe the scale this morning, but I hope it’s true.
    Day 39 – Fri Apr 14 -- 142.3 – Oh well.
    Day 40 – Sat Apr 15 -- 141.6 – Went a little off-track yesterday. ½ of a muffin with my morning coffee. I usually don’t eat anything until the afternoon. And we all know how big those muffins from Costco are. Also had some white rice with dinner. I did manage to get some exercise in which I’m happy about.
    Day 41 – Sun Apr 16 -- 141.2 IF 18:6 yesterday. I was able to hold out for two extra hours… yay! Also, stayed on track with what I ate. But no exercise.
