    5/22 - End/start weight 137.0

    5/23 - 136.8
    It has begun. Haven't maintained under this weight in 3 years. Feeling anxious.
    5/24 - 135.8
    I don't trust this. My scale was spazzing out.
    5/25 - 136.2
    had another scale spasm but trust this more. Also my morning weight. I wasn't going to make it home in the afternoon before eating a meal to see weight after finishing up burning last night dinner calories.
    5/26 136.6
    Could say it was the strawberries and nutella but I know better. I've hit my plateau. This is the point I usually get discouraged over indulge until I hit 140 lbs and start all over again. My willpower has already started cracking. To stay on track this weekend will be tough.

    5/27 - 135.2
    TOM ended. Went over DL almost 300 cal but I had deficits during the week. Indulged in kfc, pizza, ice cream and chips(all within moderation). It was a good day.
    5/28 - 136.2
    Went on a 5 mile hike. Have a feeling this is water weight. But it will take a while to break 135lbs anyways

    This is so good for me mentally - knowing others are also working to reach goals and sharing about it - and physically - keeps me working towards getting in better shape. I'm starting at 150, my goal is to reach 148, or less, after the next 10 days. Here we go!

    05/23 150 Have a Chia Seed pudding chilling in the fridge: 1/2 cup 2% milk, 1 c water, 1/3 c chia seeds, 1 scoop quest chocolate milkshake protein powder. Been seeing these sorts of concoctions for a while so thought I'd give it a go. Low cal, carbs and high protein. This amt should be good for 3 servings. Entertaining my sweet tooth.

    05/24 149.2 Yeah!!! I've been hovering around 150 - 152 for a month and finally broke thru. Now to head to 148. At 71 years losing is more challenging for me then when I was younger - it is for all of us. Avoiding processed foods and sugar just makes me feel better and even if it takes 'til the end of the year to reach goal, so be it.

    05/25 149.8 I will celebrate the fact I'm still under 150 and accept the elevator ride that seems to be my body's weight. Had some wine last night so maybe water? Worked with trainer yesterday, my last one for the package I bought, sob, but will continue on as I had my second knee replacement in Dec and need to have the muscles supporting legs/ hips, etc strong. Last night while falling asleep, I was thinking how long it has taken me, since late February, to lose 13 pounds. I'm only averaging a pound a week despite weight training 3x week, 6 days of cardio a week and keeping below goals for cals and carbs. Looked at that way it seems an awfully stingy loss rate. Then, I realized something. 2 more pounds and I'm at 50% of my weight loss goal. Yeah me! Perspective is so important.

    05/26 149.6 45 min on ellip and way under on cals, a little on carbs. Feeling good in the body. Know what I mean? Feel stronger and lighter. Not so much gut. LOL Today is gym day. Have appts so may not get in ellip. We'll see. I wish everyone a successful day filled with self loving choices. One of mine? Egg whites with a tbsp of cheese for flavor. Maybe some hot sauce. :) Life is good.

    05/27 150.2 Not bad considering I blew it on carbs yesterday. Nothing junky but someone gave me some honey mangoes - unbelievably good and then a hot dog with most of the bun. Confession is good for the soul. :) Weight training but got in no elliptical yesterday- too busy and tired from phlebotomy to reduce iron levels. Today, at least an hour on ellip is in my future as well as some pre-planning meals so I stay in range for carbs. Netflix has some exercise/dance, etc videos streaming. I might check those out.

    05/28 149.2 Yeah! Ate really clean yesterday, stayed well within goals and walked on track at Community Center 2.5 miles. Feeling really good about it all.

    I wish there was an easier way to calculate net carbs on MFP- chia seed pudding is great for fiber, but the total car count is nuts, and doing math throughout the day is NOT what I signed up for!

    It's easy, just subtract the fiber column from the carb count column and that's your carbs. It's simple. The carb count for the way I made it is 1 Carb per serving. Even if I ate the whole recipe - which I couldn't - it would only be 6 carbs. One Serving= 6 carbs gross - 5 fiber = 1 carb.

    Do you track your fiber on MFP? You can change the default nutrients under Settings. I swapped sodium for fiber and it makes the math easier since they're all right next to each other.

    05/23 150.6
    05/24 150.6 I resisted the break room donuts by picturing cockroaches crawling all over them. One of them may have been filled with Boston Cream filling.
    05/25 149.8 See what happens when you picture cockroaches crawling on food!?!?!?!
    05/26 147.6. This seems too good to be true. I was even afraid to log it. The scale actually said 147.2. I usually get down to 148.6 and sabotage myself, so this really blows me away. I haven't been below 148 in years. Yesterday I drank a lot of water and walked a lot. I stayed within my calorie goal. My back is still tender, so I'm resting it. Yesterday was also my son's 12th birthday. I only had the slightest bite of cake.
    05/27 148.6. I had some salty food last night. Today I'm going on a 5 mile hike. My family is gone on a fishing trip so I can spend the weekend eating the right foods without worrying about anybody else.

    05/28 148.6 I did the hike, cleaned, and drank lots of water. I was waaaaaay under my calorie goal, but no change today. I bet I'll see another change in the scale soon. Today will be another great day. I'm going to the gym after church and will spend time in the kitchen preparing healthy foods for next week. My grape vine is doing really well, so I'll make dolma. I've also been cleaning and organizing. I've heard there's research behind clean, organized homes and fit people. : )

    05/23 178.6
    05/24 176.8-- Maybe I finally lost the water weight after eating movie theater popcorn!! Nice surprise this AM.
    05/25 180.6-- My car broke down and we ordered out-- Chinese food. I stayed within calorie limits so I'm sure that this is just water weight... I hope!! My menstrual cycle just started so that probably has something to do with it.
    05/26 178.6 ughhh to period cravings. I played with my brothers (3 & 7) for an hour and fifteen minutes and it tired me out!! Instead of eating half a pizza, I ate a coconut popsicle to ease my cravings. I hope that this will pass and I will have a nice surprise on the first!
    05/27 178.8 Come on man :( Feeling discouraged today. I have been eating so well compared to a month ago. I ate pizza for breakfast(eek).
    05/28 178.9 just biked to work. Drank a bit much last night...

    05/23: 138.4

    05/24: 140...Went to a concert last night and ate crappy plus I didn't exercise. That's a recipe for a disappointment. I knew I was going to weigh in a little bit more this AM but I'm feeling a bit bummed out. Also feeling motivated to eat much healthier today though! When this semester is over with I know I will have much better control over my eating this weekend, once the semester is over.

    05/25: 139...feels better. Came in under my calorie count yesterday and chugged water.

    05/26: 138.6...Came in 200 over my calorie count yesterday because I went to a party and I didn't pay attention to what I was eating. I don't really have many excuses now that the semester is over and I did well. Oh wait, a family member is having a birthday party tomorrow! *facepalm*

    05/27: 140...no surprise here. So let's just say I'm pretty famous for baking and my family always asks me to bring something to whatever gathering we go to. And I'm a big sampler of my dishes. I haven't eaten sweets in so long (because I'm literally addicted) that this morning I felt sick and a little bit hung over when I woke up.

    05/28: 140...still not a surprise. I ate some more sugar yesterday. And I'm not talking about one bite. Also I was at a birthday party. So far today has been better as it is all gone from the house now.
