    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 62 years old and from the Michigan USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    Starting Weight (from Feb 28th): 191.6
    Goal: 186.6 (Five lb Loss)
    Actual Ending Weight:

    **************************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME************************************


    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.

    03/10-191.6-(Trend Weight 192.5)- What a nice surprise on the scale today! I didn’t expect a drop even though my diet and calorie burn was excellent yesterday. The past two days I have not been able to take my water pill, (Wednesday because of concert and Thursday because of cardiac rehab & travel). So this a true fat loss. Today I will take my pill as I am home on babysitting duty for DGS and snowed in anyway after several inches dropped last night. My ankles feel like I have vice grips on them so it will be a relief to shed the excess fluid. It should show up on the scale in the morning too. I have already pre-logged my planned food for today. Exercise will be tough with grandson here until about 9:30 pm. I’ll do what I can when I can but it’s hard to have a whole 20 minutes doing anything without constant interruption. Enjoy your day everyone!


    03/11-189.2-(Trend Weight 192.2) Well, here’s the true weight after the water pill took all the excess fluid out that I spoke of yesterday. What a relief to my ankles especially! Interestingly, the last two nights I dozed off on the couch and woke up STARVING TO ABSOLUTE DEATH, both times at about 12:30 a.m. I was so close to a binge it was UNBELIEVABLE! I found myself justifying (out loud, mind you) why it’s okay for me to eat whatever I want right now, and in large quantities. Why I should just shove in many kinds of foods and “get it out of my system” as long as I’m so hungry anyway. I tell you folks, it took EVERYTHING I HAVE INSIDE THIS NEARLY 63 YEAR OLD BODY to stop myself. I grabbed a handful of almonds (21 of them to be exact, which is ¾ of a serving) and I ate those, drank water and focused back on something on TV. It worked both nights. Hunger banished because of the healthy fat. I would have grabbed walnuts (so healthy) but I had already had some during breakfast both days. I’m so glad I did this two nights in a row as I know it has helped continue my weight loss. I knew, by the way, that I had already had sufficient calories, carbs, protein etc. or I would have eaten something more. My body was fighting the weight loss. We were in a bitter battle – I won this time.

    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 – Thurs 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

    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.
    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.

    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.

    Day 5 – Sat March 11 - 142.0 - Busy work week, lots of steps. Going out for drinks and dinner before he Modern Ballet tonight, I will maybe eat very little during the day to make up for it.
    Day 6 – Sun March 12
    Day 7 – Mon March 13
    Day 8 – Tues March 14
    Day 9 – Wed March 15
    Day 10 – Thurs March 16
    Day 11 – Fri March 17

    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
    Excess calories burned (in the green):

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

    I'm sure that you burn lots of calories running after your DGS!

    @dawnbgethealthy His bedroom with his toy box and his own TV is upstairs so, yes, It's going up and down those very steep steps so many times! He definitely keeps me on my toes. Let's just say I spoil him a bit?

    So glad you are feeling better and back to work. It was rough-going for you for a bit!

    Our clocks go back in the US tonight for daylight savings time. Do you folks do that in Canada?

    Think Spring! I've been looking at my shorts and capris in my drawers to see what is too big and what is too small. Yes, my weight fluctuates THAT bad. Hopefully, it will just go down this spring and summer. The other day I closed out my MFP log and it said that I was going to lose 19 pounds in the next 5 weeks. Ridiculous, of course!

    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
    Day 6 87.4 0 g/day

    Hi all, I'm Rowan, I live in Northamptonshire, UK.
    I have been off and on MFP since 2013, and have been 128lbs at my lowest, 180.8 at my highest.
    In the summer of 2021, I was at my highest weight and feeling utterly sick, tired and depressed. I restarted tracking my calories, with no exercise other than walking 5 miles a day most days, and managed to lose 43lbs in about 5 months. But then I took a break in March last year and didn't come back until January this year, by which time I'd regained 26lbs. So I got back in the game and am now down about 13lbs since then.
    I am taking a different approach this time, I have raised my calories slightly and am focusing on getting lots of protein and staying hydrated. I have been strength training for about the last month, which I am really enjoying, but it does leave me feeling quite tired at times, so it can be difficult to get my steps in every day.
    I have a health tracker watch which tells me that I have a BMR of 1254 calories a day and on days that I work out I burn around 1800-2000 calories in 24hrs, 1500 calories on days that i don't. I aim to eat around 1200 calories a day with 40% protein. I have a BMI of 26.5 and I have a high body fat percentage of 40.4%, so I really need to lower my body fat to at least 30% and raise my muscle mass. Hopefully this will help increase my metabolism, which seems to crawl along at a snail's pace. Gaining any muscle while eating at a deficit is really difficult, but at least I can do my best to retain the muscle that I have.
    I should be losing about 1.5lbs a week, however things aren't always so straightforward, so I have set a target for 1lb a week for the first 50 days of this challenge, then 0.5lb a week for the second 50 days. If I manage to get to within the healthy BMI range by the end of this, I will be very happy. So that's 143lbs for me, about 9lbs to lose, but I'm hoping for 141lbs.

    Sorry for the essay! Good luck to everyone, we can do this!

    F42 5'4
    Highest weight: 180.8lbs July 5th '21
    Current weight: 151.6lbs
    Challenge goal weight: 141.0lbs
    Ultimate goal weight: Under 130lbs
    Target lbs to lose: 10.6lbs
    Day 50 mini goal 143.2lbs based on trend weight prediction

    Day 1 – Tues March 07 151.6
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 151.8
    Day 3 – Thurs March 09 151.2
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 151.2

    1st week goal weight: 151.0
    1st week actual weight: 151.2

    Challenge weight lost: 0.4
    Challenge weight to go: 10.2


    Not the best start, but I think I'm in the middle of my usual monthly plateau, and water retention from muscle soreness is also at play.
    I'm fully in my routine now of gym 4/5 days a week, cals 1200 or less and walking 8500 a day, so I just need to stay consistent and let the magic happen. I would like to find ways to be more active, outside of intentional exercise. When the weather improves it should become easier. I have loads of DIY that I need to get done but traipsing in and out of my cold garage in the sleet and rain really doesn't appeal.
    A couple of days ago we booked flights to Portugal, leaving on the 22nd, back on 28th. I'm thinking of taking a food scale and an exercise band with me to help me stay on track. There's a pool at our apartment and push bikes we can use, so hopefully I'll be able to counteract any excesses by staying active. OH will be working while we're there, so I'll have a lot of time to kill. I'm wondering if I'm brave enough to do a sea kayaking tour on my own... I'm a water baby but OH can't swim and has a bit of a fear of deep water, so I don't often get the chance to get out on the waves. Need to brush up on my Portuguese, I was doing daily lessons for a few months then stopped abruptly about 2 weeks ago and I'm shocked how much I've forgotten already! Agora, eu vou a commer o pequeño-almoço, depois eu vou para o gym. Até tarde!

    Day 5 – Sat March 11 150.2

    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!

    Hahaha, yes, a chuckle indeed about the underwear : - 0

    Yes, we still change our clocks, but don't want to anymore. It is contingent on the USA, with many States already on board to stop this antiquated/outdated practice. Hopefully this is the last time for that!

    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.
    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.

    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.

    Day 5 – Sat March 11 - 142.0 - Busy work week, lots of steps. Going out for drinks and dinner before he Modern Ballet tonight, I will maybe eat very little during the day to make up for it.
    Day 6 – Sun March 12 - 143.8 - Expected, restaurant food. The place is called Mr. Mike's Steakhouse and Grill, not sure if you have those in the States or not. The Ribs listed as 2800 calories. A chicken breast cooked at home on the George Foreman grill is around 80 calories. At Mr. Mike's a grilled chicken breast to put on your salad is 380. Some salads listed at 793 calories. I'll see if I can add a snip here. Restaurants are killer for me personally, around a 2 pound gain in one day, sometimes it is a 3 pound gain. I had a Salad and grilled cajun chicken btw, it was delicious. I am setting a goal here publicly to only eat in restaurants 6 times per year. The lodge chips alone are like a days worth of calories, and that is not including any other actual food that day.

    @dawnbgethealthy The same thing happens to me. 2-3 pound gain at the restaurant! However, I know I did not eat over 10,000 calories (not EVEN counting my BMR and my exercise calories too) so I just don't sweat it as much as I used to. I know the food is LOADED with sodium and that a weight gain of that much is usually a lot of water retention on me.

    Having said that, though, the Calories are MUCH Higher than what I would have eaten at home and there is bound to be some sort of real gain, even if it's only 0.3 or 0.4 on the scale after a day or two of water shedding. It's not conducive to weight loss, no matter how you look at it. Since we only have a few very tired and very overused restaurants in my area, I mainly use restaurants when out of town traveling. And I always have to take the extra sitting in the car and at the appointments into account too. I never get as much burn or as many steps on those days and THAT don't help the situation either.

    There is however, the matter of heart, body and soul. When it comes to the soul, a dinner out with friends cannot be measured in numbers. I'm glad you got out and enjoyed yourself, especially after being couped up and so sick! How was the ballet?

    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

    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


    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    Starting Weight from End of Last Challenge: : 191.2
    Goal This Round: 186.2

    Ending Weight: xxxxx


    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 07-03/13-189.4-(Trend weight 191.6) The scale is up a bit even though I followed my plan, logged all my food and stayed under in both calories and carbs. I did take a rest day with no exercise and enjoyed my Oscar night. Also dinner was late at 10:30 pm and not much sleep. Travel today.

    Hi all, I'm Rowan, I live in Northamptonshire, UK.
    I have been off and on MFP since 2013, and have been 128lbs at my lowest, 180.8 at my highest.
    In the summer of 2021, I was at my highest weight and feeling utterly sick, tired and depressed. I restarted tracking my calories, with no exercise other than walking 5 miles a day most days, and managed to lose 43lbs in about 5 months. But then I took a break in March last year and didn't come back until January this year, by which time I'd regained 26lbs. So I got back in the game and am now down about 13lbs since then.
    I am taking a different approach this time, I have raised my calories slightly and am focusing on getting lots of protein and staying hydrated. I have been strength training for about the last month, which I am really enjoying, but it does leave me feeling quite tired at times, so it can be difficult to get my steps in every day.
    I have a health tracker watch which tells me that I have a BMR of 1254 calories a day and on days that I work out I burn around 1800-2000 calories in 24hrs, 1500 calories on days that i don't. I aim to eat around 1200 calories a day with 40% protein. I have a BMI of 26.5 and I have a high body fat percentage of 40.4%, so I really need to lower my body fat to at least 30% and raise my muscle mass. Hopefully this will help increase my metabolism, which seems to crawl along at a snail's pace. Gaining any muscle while eating at a deficit is really difficult, but at least I can do my best to retain the muscle that I have.
    I should be losing about 1.5lbs a week, however things aren't always so straightforward, so I have set a target for 1lb a week for the first 50 days of this challenge, then 0.5lb a week for the second 50 days. If I manage to get to within the healthy BMI range by the end of this, I will be very happy. So that's 143lbs for me, about 9lbs to lose, but I'm hoping for 141lbs.

    Sorry for the essay! Good luck to everyone, we can do this!

    F42 5'4
    Highest weight: 180.8lbs July 5th '21
    Current weight: 151.6lbs
    Challenge goal weight: 141.0lbs
    Ultimate goal weight: Under 130lbs
    Target lbs to lose: 10.6lbs
    Day 50 mini goal 143.2lbs based on trend weight prediction

    Day 1 – Tues March 07 151.6
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 151.8
    Day 3 – Thurs March 09 151.2
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 151.2

    1st week goal weight: 151.0
    1st week actual weight: 151.2

    Challenge weight lost: 0.4
    Challenge weight to go: 10.2


    Not the best start, but I think I'm in the middle of my usual monthly plateau, and water retention from muscle soreness is also at play.
    I'm fully in my routine now of gym 4/5 days a week, cals 1200 or less and walking 8500 a day, so I just need to stay consistent and let the magic happen. I would like to find ways to be more active, outside of intentional exercise. When the weather improves it should become easier. I have loads of DIY that I need to get done but traipsing in and out of my cold garage in the sleet and rain really doesn't appeal.
    A couple of days ago we booked flights to Portugal, leaving on the 22nd, back on 28th. I'm thinking of taking a food scale and an exercise band with me to help me stay on track. There's a pool at our apartment and push bikes we can use, so hopefully I'll be able to counteract any excesses by staying active. OH will be working while we're there, so I'll have a lot of time to kill. I'm wondering if I'm brave enough to do a sea kayaking tour on my own... I'm a water baby but OH can't swim and has a bit of a fear of deep water, so I don't often get the chance to get out on the waves. Need to brush up on my Portuguese, I was doing daily lessons for a few months then stopped abruptly about 2 weeks ago and I'm shocked how much I've forgotten already! Agora, eu vou a commer o pequeño-almoço, depois eu vou para o gym. Até tarde!

    @deepwoodslady

    Agreed, restaurant food is loaded with hidden sodium and fat. Not to mention how expensive it is compared to what it costs to eat the same thing at home or at someone's house. But yeah, nice to go out once in awhile.

    Thank you for asking about the Ballet. It was wonderful. I went to a Classical ballet around a month ago, this one was a Modern Ballet, 5 pieces altogether.

    I am going to the same theatre twice this week, an all female comedy show (Women who Laff) tomorrow night, and then a String Quartet Chamber music (Agora) on Thursday night. I am looking forward to them both : - )

    Those are late nights 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.
    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.

    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.

    Day 5 – Sat March 11 - 142.0 - Busy work week, lots of steps. Going out for drinks and dinner before he Modern Ballet tonight, I will maybe eat very little during the day to make up for it.
    Day 6 – Sun March 12 - 143.8 - Expected, restaurant food. The place is called Mr. Mike's Steakhouse and Grill, not sure if you have those in the States or not. The Ribs listed as 2800 calories. A chicken breast cooked at home on the George Foreman grill is around 80 calories. At Mr. Mike's a grilled chicken breast to put on your salad is 380. Some salads listed at 793 calories. I'll see if I can add a snip here. Restaurants are killer for me personally, around a 2 pound gain in one day, sometimes it is a 3 pound gain. I had a Salad and grilled cajun chicken btw, it was delicious. I am setting a goal here publicly to only eat in restaurants 6 times per year. The lodge chips alone are like a days worth of calories, and that is not including any other actual food that day.

    Day 7 – Mon March 13 - 145.0 - Even more fallout from eating a salad with grilled chicken at the restaurant on Saturday? Yesterday I only had 1100 calories. I feel derailed, but will soldier on.

    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 – Thurs 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
