    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!

    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!

    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: 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.

    Accumulated Loss or Gain: 1.8 lbs. LOST


    Day 08-03/14-187.8-(Trend weight 191.3)


    Day 09-03/15-188.8-(Trend weight 191.0) Up a full pound today but I’m not going to be discouraged. It was a very good day yesterday and my trend weight is still dropping. Yesterday was 976 calories and 56 carbs. Both below my daily goal. I saw my family doctor in a nearby town yesterday for a medication check (no major traveling) and she was THRILLED with my progress and I felt very proud. I think the scale is reflecting the water retention I have on non-medication days and no TMI today. This is exactly why I like the wiggle room in each new decade. On the exercise front, I went to the school yesterday evening and walked 2 miles until the janitors kicked me out. Today I am batch cooking for the freezer. Yesterday at the out-of-town grocery store I bought a 3 pack of large English cut Roasts. I cooked one overnight in the crock pot, I’m cooking another all day today and I’ll do the last one overnight. Guess what I’m having for dinner? LOL


    Day 10-03/16-188.8-(Trend weight 190.8) No scale change. Another late dinner like most have been the past few days. Dinner at 10:00 pm and snacks at midnight. This is becoming a problem with the scale a bit, I think. Problem is that I’m just not hungry earlier and I don’t like to eat when I’m not hungry. I’ve got to start my first meal earlier which will interrupt my IF a little sooner, but it’s the only thing I can think of. I may also lighten up my first meal, but I’m already running under calorie so I just dunno. I’ll throw this up in the air, spin it around and see what comes out this weekend. Today I travel for my cardiac rehab. I do like that the trend weight is still going downward, noticing my calorie and carb cuts and recognizing both my exercise and my determination.

    @dawnbgethealthy thanks for the welcome.

    I'm 52yrs. and 5'0" Up until February I was 108. and 6 months prior (Jun, 2022) I was 104. I know it's tiny..... but gaining 8# in a short period of time is NOT the right path. I do a TON of strength training, so if I can just get down a little I should see some awesome muscle definition.

    I know part of my weight gain in feb. was from visiting family in SouthDakota. and then that leading into my dad passing.....which is 3 weeks ago. I have a nutritionist I'm going to start working with at the end of March. Fingers crossed for that. Right now, I'm just working on eating less and seeing if I can make any trend downward again.

    I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. Very hard.

    My 2 cents: I was the heaviest of my life at 52 - all of the perio and meno really messed up my hormones.

    I will look forward to hearing about your experience with a nutritionist.

    @deepwoodslady

    Yes, late eating is a killer for sure. Like you, I don't eat when I am not hungry.
    Word is that it is better to eat the big meal earlier in the day and then very light later. This doesn't work for me at all for several reasons.

    Are you getting close to being finished with the cardio rehab?

    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.

    yt8zihcafc8d.png


    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.
    Day 8 – Tues March 14 - 144.2 - Going out to an all female comedy show tonight, so dinner will be late. I will probably have some egg whites and toast before going to the show - so as not to have gas while there lol.
    Day 9 – Wed March 15 - 144.2 - I ate quite late. The show was good, but kind of raunchy.
    Day 10 – Thurs March 16 - 144.0 - Argh, I feel like I am firmly in the 140s, I only touched the 130s a few times during the last 100. Better than the 190s I suppose, but I am not comfortable at this weight, in my clothes or with my mobility. I will keep working on it. Tonight I am going out to the theatre to see a String Quartet Chamber Music concert, so dinner will yet again be very late (not wanting gas or an uncomfortable tummy while sitting still) and not good for my weight.
    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

    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

    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

    Yes, late eating is a killer for sure. Like you, I don't eat when I am not hungry.
    Word is that it is better to eat the big meal earlier in the day and then very light later. This doesn't work for me at all for several reasons.

    Are you getting close to being finished with the cardio rehab?

    My cardiologist told me 12 weeks which should end in March since I started in December. But when I asked them at rehab a couple of weeks ago, they told me my insurance had pre-approved for much longer so...... I don't exactly know. I do know that the rehab folks believe the more I can strengthen and condition my heart, the better, so I may be in for a few more months. I guess I'll find more out later. I don't want to ask again right away because the main lady (she handles all the paperwork too) is really mean.......

    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

    Day 10 – Thurs March 16 150.8 Oh well.
    Day 11 – Fri March 17 151.4 Not impressed.

    That really sucks. I don't think there's anything else I can do, I have been sticking to my calories and macros, doing my best to stay hydrated, walking at least 8500 steps, weight training at least 4 times a week and not eating back any exercise calories. And I have lost NOTHING since the start of the month. I do not want to drop calories any further, I average 1100 a day. So frustrating. I need to keep reminding myself that my trend weight is down 2.5lbs from the start of the month, and even though progress is slow, there's still progress.

    GOAL: 104
    03/14 : 111.4
    3/15 : 111.6
    03/27 : 112.2


    @dawnbgethealthy - interesting that 52yrs was your heaviest year. So far 50 -52 has been my most challenging.

    I'm working on healthier habits. Re-watching some vLogs I've recorded. Reminding myself that fruit is a better snack option than bread and peanut butter. The warmer weather will help (if it ever gets here).
    I will share all I can on the nutrition piece when I start on March 27th.

    Im on a cruise starting Sunday. I want to have a goal of weighing LESS when I get off the cruise on 3/25.
    the goal is to do like 3 bites of anything .... stopping when not hungry. <-- that is really what is hard. To eat when actually hungry and to stop eating.

    one of my greatest weight losses was with Keto because I convinced myself that 4 nuts and a tsp of oil was a meal. (Not healthy weight loss!). This time i want it to be sustainable. and also, I KNOW i have been snacking between meals A LOT more. When I just simply drop a few of those activities I KNOW I will be heading in the right direction also.

    Hi - Female, Age 50, height 5’4”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 200 lbs (March 15, 2023)
    Challenge Goal: 15 lbs in 100 days
    Ultimate Goal: 50 lbs in one year (or less!)

    I was wondering how often to weigh myself. I realize the first month includes losing a bit of water weight. I am mindful that it could take longer than three months to see a noticeable weight loss… patience is a virtue! But this challenge ought to help me stay on track while I get over the starting phase.

    Hi. Welcome.

    I think most of us weigh every morning before water and coffee and stuff.
    I like to weigh every day because of fluctuations. I found that weighing once per week was frustrating because it might be on a fluctuation day.
    I also think that it helps in the long run to see on the loss or gain days what you ate the day before those occur.

    Yes, we post daily. Good, bad, or indifferent. For most of us it is about accountability.

    I cut and paste each week's dates from page 2 of this forum, you will see that under my name. We are heading into week 3 of the 100 days now.

    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.

    yt8zihcafc8d.png


    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.
    Day 8 – Tues March 14 - 144.2 - Going out to an all female comedy show tonight, so dinner will be late. I will probably have some egg whites and toast before going to the show - so as not to have gas while there lol.
    Day 9 – Wed March 15 - 144.2 - I ate quite late. The show was good, but kind of raunchy.
    Day 10 – Thurs March 16 - 144.0 - Argh, I feel like I am firmly in the 140s, I only touched the 130s a few times during the last 100. Better than the 190s I suppose, but I am not comfortable at this weight, in my clothes or with my mobility. I will keep working on it. Tonight I am going out to the theatre to see a String Quartet Chamber Music concert, so dinner will yet again be very late (not wanting gas or an uncomfortable tummy while sitting still) and not good for my weight.
    Day 11 – Fri March 17 - 142.6 - Weird drop, but I will take it.

    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): I will add this up after today's numbers.

    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

    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 10-03/16-188.8-(Trend weight 190.8) No scale change. Another late dinner like most have been the past few days. Dinner at 10:00 pm and snacks at midnight. This is becoming a problem with the scale a bit, I think. Problem is that I’m just not hungry earlier and I don’t like to eat when I’m not hungry. I’ve got to start my first meal earlier which will interrupt my IF a little sooner, but it’s the only thing I can think of. I may also lighten up my first meal, but I’m already running under calorie so I just dunno. I’ll throw this up in the air, spin it around and see what comes out this weekend. Today I travel for my cardiac rehab. I do like that the trend weight is still going downward, noticing my calorie and carb cuts and recognizing both my exercise and my determination.

    Day 11-03/17-DNW-(Trend weight DNW) I traveled yesterday for cardiac rehab (2 hours of class) which was mainly a lot of sitting and educational training yesterday. Because I always shop when out of town and eat at a restaurant for lunch which usually puts me over my goals, I made a conscious and deliberate decision to have a “shake it up” day. I don’t dare look at the scale today because I don’t want to be discouraged. However, in the coming days I hope it will get things moving in the right direction again since I had a couple of days that did not make sense. Hopefully this will trick my metabolism which feels like it’s really slowed down. This isn’t my first rodeo and I have to do this from time to time. Sometimes a couple of times per month. Today I will be back to my normal lifestyle choices and keeping my glucose levels normal. I will push water.

    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

    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 --
