6/07--176.4 Yes!!! Happy to see some movement to start off the round! Had a good day yesterday; didn't snack throughout the day and ended up only a few calories over my goal.
6/08--176.2 Two days in a row is beautiful! I am determined to make this last the whole round! No snacking yesterday but I did overeat Ben and Jerry's non-dairy ice cream last night. Even so, only a few calories over my goal.
6/09--176.4 Three days in a row at 176, haven't seen that in four years! Pilates this morning and hopefully working on some projects around the house this weekend. I tend to do better, food-wise, on the weekends.
6/10--175.8 Could it be??? I was active yesterday. My diet was on point. I earned this!
6/11--176.4 It was fun while it lasted
6/12--176.4 Way over my calories yesterday but just over maintenance, so I think it will be okay. I hope! Headed out of town today for a concert so it will be two days of being in the car and eating out.
6/13--Out of town
6/14--178.0 TOM showed up to sabotage this round
6/13 - 238. I recall a few rounds ago I was 229. Disappointing to write this but also glad I have the accountability. Today I am focusing on tracking calories, everything that I eat, and increasing my water intake. I don't really have a goal till the end of the round, just perhaps staying away from overeating. *let's see*
6/14 - 237.4 Scale is in the right direction. Focusing on the positive today!
6/15 - 236.8 It's amazing how tracking your food (even if you overeat a little) will help with raising awareness and overall debloat. Progress is progress even if it's a few oz!
@GrandmaJackie LOL Thank you!
@puddlegoober Thanks, perhaps you hadn’t. I don’t know why but I like knowing where everyone is.
@mz144 HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Round 43: SW 231; GW 230
6/7 / 232 / Not a shocker given that I was up at 4 am to get on a train.
6/8 / 231 / Back to a more normal weigh in time. Yesterday was mostly train rides, though I did get walking in. High sodium and not enough water, so I'm pleased to be at 231. Woke up with a killer headache. I don't know if it's sinus or lack of caffeine (I've been trying to cut back). I started today with a big breakfast, so we'll see how my calories shake out.
6/9 / 230.6 / Sinus headache again (I'm pretty sure it's sinus).
6/10 / 230.4 / Slowly creeping down. And headache AGAIN. I've gone a tiny bit over calories the past couple of days. I've been eating bigger breakfasts than normal for me, and it's not a winning strategy. It's not enough to cause me to gain. It will just slow my loss. But today, I'm getting that back down to my normal. I've abandoned giving up caffeine right now.
6/11 / 231.4 / Bah.
6/12 / 230.4 / All day on the 11th in jury duty. Very under calories, though even more under on any hydration until late.
6/13 / 232 / I've got some digestive things going on that are no fun. I'm doing well, calorie-wise, so I'm not worried about this weigh in. I keep missing my exercise goal, though.
6/14 / 231.6 / Eating well. Got my exercise in. Tummy troubles continue to plague me.
6/15 / 231.6 / Groundhog day. Still eating well. (This has been a good round food-wise.) Got my exercise in yesterday. Still having digestive issues.
6/07 weigh myself Fridays
6/08 Fitbit steps over 10,000 which is good. I haven't been able to bend at all due to surgery, I would like to try some easy exercises to help me.(for bending) half way down.
6/09- busy a lot of shopping today. Went out for dinner, not the best choices, but it was a good dinner.On track tomorrow.
6/10 getting my steps, my fruits and vegetables in, eating healthy.
6/11 - Great start since the weekend my Fitbit steps have been over 10,000. Thursday I have to go to the Cancer Clinic then I will know where I stand.
6/12 On a great streak for walking, (45mins)-and it was hot!
6/13 -feeling great today starting to get my power walking back. Walking daily, starting to push myself more with out feeling tired.
6/14- I had a rough day yesterday, I had a good surgery and healing really good, but when I went to the Cancer clinic at the hospital they said I had a very rare tumour that they removed, and I have to start six weeks of radiation, and steroids again. So I have a rough afternoon today. Then I have to continue to fight this. Walking and eating healthy.Family and friends are the greatest.9
@sue_01, your MFP friends and family are pulling for you! I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this.
And everyone else facing physical issues or rough patches, know that there are a lot of us out here who are reading and who care about you!

Daily Goals: Smarter choices, that I still enjoy
Long Term Goals: A healthy lifestyle I can maintain
Short Term GW: 199.9 by 6/21
UGW: 155ish - by April 2019
6/07 - Thursday - 198.4 - Nice! Last night was crazy busy, still ate well. Packed and ready to leave from work! I am committed to being present in the moment while away, but also plan to keep up my habit and log in to MFP each day. No scales. Aim to maintain while still enjoying!
6/08 - Friday - Traveling - ate at maintenance today! And yesterday. Aiming to do the same tomorrow and Sunday!
6/09 - Saturday - Traveling - another day at maintenance!
6/10 - Sunday - Traveling - Ate at maintenance again!
6/11 - Monday - 199.8 - Holy moly I cannot believe this! Perhaps I'm a bit dehydrated after traveling? Although I usually retain water after a flight. I had a lovely vacation with my family - it was not entirely centered around food but I certainly enjoyed myself eating instead of stressing about every bite. It was so nice to get away from it all. It was also fun to enjoy things this weekend and not feel bad about it. I'm not on a diet this time around - it's a lifestyle change. So I'm not stressing about "cheating" or having a few not so perfect days. Life is for living and I did a lot of that this weekend! The food I ate fueled me to wake up and watch the sunrise on the beach. It fueled me to swim and play in the ocean for hours. It was food I shared with loved one's. It was food that made me smile. I thought I might go home with a few extra pounds of weight, but it seems I have found the right balance and I get to come home with a few hundred memories, a heart full of love, and gratitude for the things my body allows me to do.
6/12 - Tuesday - 201.2 - Yesterday was tough - I was so tired, and I don't do well with anything when tired. I made it to the grocery store - avoided the chips in the check out line - but ate 2 slices of deli meat when I got home. Cooked and ate dinner, ate some ice cream, ate some chips, ate some more ice cream. Oi. That hasnt happened in a while but between the indulgences over the weekend and the lack of sleep I got a bit out of control. Logged it and I'm moving on! Back to my usuals today - smoothie, leftovers for lunch, popcorn for a snack, and meats thawing for dinner tonight. Lots of water to flush out ALL this sodium I've consumed over the past 5 days, expecting the gain to stick around a few days but hopeful to be back in onderland by rounds end!
6/13 - Wednesday - 200.6 - Ate within calories yesterday! Lots of water and fresh air really helped. I also did a little research on lack of sleep and weight. Turns out not getting enough sleep does indeed cause hormonal shifts that make you hungrier, and hungrier for fatty foods. So, I got to bed early again and I'm ready to crush another day! Got my smoothie, wrap with chips (portioned out) for lunch, and an extra scoop of protein powder for a snack because my protein goals have been falling short lately. Visualizing the scale being in the 100's by Saturday. Visualization helps me with a lot of things - I used to drive crazy distances and I'd visualize myself getting home at the end of it and it really helped me through those drives, so I kept it as a tool, and I'm going to try applying it here. Visualizing myself strong, fit, healthy, and happy!
6/14 - Thursday - 199.6 - Got some lab test results yesterday. Triglycerides were sky high. I was so dissapointed for a moment. But instead of wallowing, I did my research, got some fish oil, and worked doctors orders of 2 doses/day into my regular routine. A teaspoon in my morning smoothie, and a teaspoon in the evening after dinner. It's scary to see the numbers like that in black and white. That's why I'm doing this though - to gain knowledge and improve my health! Also started taking vitamin b complex last night because my bilirubin was also slightly elevated - my body is telling me that it might be due to vitamin b deficiency from metformin use. Now the hard part - to maintain these habits! Eating was good yesterday - stayed within calories even though I was "hungry" right before bed I resisted. Smoothie, packed lunch, snacks, and planned dinner is all prelogged today. Havent done that before but I was stressing about food yesterday so it felt good to commit to a plan and be done thinking about it. Lots of water again today. Im visualizing the scale at 197.6 - not specifically for the end of this round, it will be a 15 lb loss so that is what I'm working towards currently.
6/15 - Friday - 198.6 - A good day yesterday! I'm feeling stronger - doing 15 wall push ups per bathroom trip and 15 squats (started at 5 each and it was hard then). Eating was good yesterday even though I went a bit off plan. I'm really happy that I'm learning how to go with the flow and make smart choices when things don't go as planned instead of using that as an excuse to eat junk. Another new winning recipe! https://thewoksoflife.com/2016/04/15-minute-lazy-noodles/ around 530cals/serving as written! Took ALL my meds and supplements yesterday - huge win for me, now to continue that! I did learn I can't take b-complex at night cause I woke up 3 times to pee! So I'll be adjusting that to mid day/early evening. Having a dinner party tonight - prelogged my day to see what will fit at dinner time, so I'll be a mindful while still enjoying the company of friends and some tasty food they are bringing from a local butcher. Looks like I'll get some more lettuce to add a salad for some volume. Forewarned is forearmed! Happy Friday!

This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.
6/7 136.5 I was feeling frustrated when I weighed this morning until I realized, I am still below my original goal weight. Working on changing my mind set.
6/11 135.0. Yesterday we cleaned our daughter’s carpets since they were gone until last night. Lots of going up and down stairs which I would not have been able to do a year ago due to knee pain. THANK YOU KETO!
6/12 135.5 Awake and up before 5. Too darn early! Today is my 1 year JGM10D anniversary. Although I was getting ready to be taking several trips before mid-July I decided I would use 10 days JUST ONCE. I didn’t realize it would go on forever but I am so glad it has. It’s my better addiction!
6/13 135.5 Early weigh in and Late post as I had to finish an ebook before it was retrieved. I have been very distracted lately. I took one of our granddaughters to lunch yesterday and then we walked around the mall. Got over 130% of my step goal. Ate all Keto but too much. I need to get my focus back. DH is stressing over the work the landscaper has done and says he should have done it himself. It’s 109* right now and at this age he doesn’t need to be digging trenches for watering system and hauling rock! His stress is causing me stress!!
6/14 134.0 Over on everything and had the first glass of wine since last fall, which I didn’t track. And I’m down 1.5#.
6/15 134.0 My daughter told me a few weeks ago that I wasn’t eating enough calories. Several days I was at about 775, but I wasn’t hungry. This week it doesn’t seem to matter what I’m eating, my calories and macros are over BUT my weight has dropped. This morning I looked at the calories expended on my Garmin app and since June 1st, they average about 1360. I need to examine my macros. Maybe my daughter was right.4

My habit of logging here is working as well in maintenance as it did while losing. Wishing everyone a god round!
Round 42 GOAL = Log every day. Get 5 cardio workouts. Get 5 mini strength workouts.
6/7 - 126.4 - whoosh of -2 pounds in a day. This takes me back to my pre-vacation range, getting rid of the bit I gained AFTER coming back. Yesterday just under maintenance calories, 30 min elliptical arctrainer, and tested my recovering knee in a 1.25 mile run ... it passed!
6/8 - 127.0 - Yesterday right at maintenance calories, RAN 2.2 MILES, walked an extra bit, and got my 10K steps.
6/9 - 127.4 - Yesterday under maintenance by 100 or so, ran 2 miles, and did a little body-weight strength workout, just starting. 10K steps.
6/10 - 128.0 - Yesterday 170 over maintenance calories and I LOGGED IT ANYWAY (that has been a fight for me so yay). Left Knee has gotten jealous of Right Knee and decided it wanted extra massage, the neoprene sleeve, arnica, and biofreeze TOO. Unfortunate, but maybe I shouldn't have done so many body weight lunges and squats barefoot on a cushy rug while watching the Warriors win the title Friday night. Nonetheless, 10K steps and a short walk.
6/11 - 128.4 - Yesterday under maintenance calories, 13K steps, and a workout that mixed short run, elliptical with sprints, and a little strength
6/12 - 126.8 - Yesterday under maintenance calories, 8K steps and at least got a few strength exercises in. Emotional day.
6/13 -126.8 - Yesterday under maintenance calories. It was just a day to get through and learn from. Here's to less self-caused emotional drama today.
Progress report: have accomplished 3/5 cardio workouts and 3/5 mini strength workouts so far. Time to finish strong, I see how anxiety the last couple of days affected my plan.
6/14 - 126.0 - Yesterday under maintenance calories - I have a little insurance built in and try to stay under as I let my fitbit burn sync up, and I consider that total to be "maintenance calories." Great run last night, most since the knees started feeling fragile: 3.75 miles.
6/15 - 126.8 - Yesterday 14 calories over maintenance. Hahaha! Got a nice mini-strength workout at lunch hour with some planks and stuff, 7K steps.
R39: AW 219.86
R40: AW 219.18 (-.68)
R41: AW 217.83 (-1.35)
R42: AW 217.64 (-0.19)
Two goals for this round:
1. Reach 10K steps for 7/10 days--2/10
2. Drink 2L of water a day
R43: SW: 218.2
6/07--219.2 I have no idea where the increase came from. Working on water today.
6/08--218.2 There it goes. Got my water in yesterday.
6/09--218.0 Going back down slowly. Working on making sure I get my water in this weekend. It's supposed to be a rainy weekend so I am planning on getting out when there is a break in the weather and get my steps in.
6/10--219.2 Chinese food water retention. Based on my past experience the water weight will stick around for 2-3 days. Got my steps in yesterday and already did Kettlebell for today. Going out to a bbq today, so it will be a good challenge for me to stay focussed on my balanced eating.
6/11--219.3 Surprised it wasn't higher. Between the soreness from Kettlebell and the small amount of water I drank yesterday, I was expecting more water weight to show up on the scale. I kept within my calories yesterday even though I went the bbq, so that was a success.
6/12--219.5 Sore from Kettlebell and not a great sleep. This has been a weird round for the scale. I will just keep doing what I need to do and let the scale do what the scale wants to do. Got walk in yesterday.
6/13--219.3 Woke up feeling heavy this morning. I looked back over my food diary and realized that for the past few days I have had little to no vegetables and very little fiber. I am going to work on increasing both over the next few days and see how I feel.
6/14--218.0 Feeling less heavy this morning. It's amazing how quickly your body can respond to a change in eating habits. Will continue to be conscious about the amount of fiber I am eating.
6/15--217.1 Weight loss is such a mental game.

6/06- 148.5. Morning workout (21d Fix). Lunch walk. Got into some snacks towards bedtime but I was still within calorie goals. Retail therapy with the girl after dinner. Minimum screens at bedtime. Good day.
6/07- 149.0 Slept in today. Exercise is going to be difficult. My cold is kicking my butt…. Biked for an hour yesterday. Food was good. Up a bit later than I wanted, but that’s okay. Spent time connecting with my husband. Nice night.
6/08- 150. Likely water retention from the peanuts I had before bed time. Not stressing over it. Did I exercise? I can't remember. I'm taking a as I know I battled various cravings.
6/09- OMG! I worked like a madwoman on Saturday. 10k steps before noon. 30m exercise. Food wasn't there as I had dinner out with a few drinks.
6/10- No exercise. Good day of setting things up for the weekend.
6/11- 153. Not worrying about this. Yes, it's high. But that generally happens after a weekend where I've had a couple of drinks. Morning workout. Walked at lunch. A bit off last night with my food choices. I was So very hungry. And I got into chocolate. Operation declutter is underway.
6/12- No weigh in today. No exercise this morning. Crappy night of sleep. Got to fit in some time at the gym lifting. But it doesn’t look promising today. Ended up walking to the ballpark- But decided to do #1 workout of C25K. Pretty good eating day.
6/13-150. Morning workout followed by some extra biking. Going to be a full day of exercise as I am planning on walking at lunch and the lawn needs to be mowed. Also want to work in the garden; and lift. I need to quit my job so that I can get it all in!!! Went out for lunch yesterday and ate too much. Ended up lifting last night. And eating…. All logged. Because of the chips at lunch, the day is not considered to be “good”.
6/14- No weigh in again today, didn’t want to face the number. Also slept in. Tonight will be a full with some sort of exercise. Walk at lunch; Bike ride after dinner. Food was on plan. Read before bed. First good day in a while.
Looks like another round where a couple of days of being off plan, leads to no loss. Boo.

We went out for lunch yesterday (Mexican, but I had grilled chicken and rice with veggies), so although I stayed pretty much within calorie bounds, I'm sure my sodium was higher than usual. I spent a good hour digging and planting flowers in my garden.
6/08 - 149.8 - 1245 - 10-day ave 1421.4
OK, scale, I'm ready for a little drop if you don't mind. I'm keeping calories low, macros good, and I'm exercising, so come on, your turn.
6/9 - 149.8 - 1433 - 10-day ave 1435.5
Sigh. I really thought I'd see a little more movement here. My total calories are right at my estimated TDEE (maintenance), but I'm burning a reasonable number each day. Or I thought I was. I guess I'll keep doing what I'm doing through the end of this round and see if there's any progress. If not, I'll look for a way to shake things up. It's pouring rain this morning, with lightning, so no walk, but I'll find something else.... Lunch with a friend, but I'll stick to good stuff. Have a lovely weekend, all!
6/10 - 149.6 - 1442 - 10-day ave 1448.9
Finally, a baby step in the right direction. I find these numbers & averages fascinating. There's still one high-calorie day in my 10-day set of numbers - it will be there for 2 more days. Without it, by average would be about 40 calories lower. I'll be interested to see what happens when I hit the lower averages (assuming I don't splurge again any time soon!). I do eat what I want - pizza for lunch yesterday with a friend - but still keep my daily total within bounds and that seems to make the difference. Anyway, if you find yourself frustrated with the daily ups & downs, try averaging, either yourself or using one of the apps that calculate running averages of weights entered.
6/11 - 150 - 1374 - 10-day ave 1456.6 (7-day ave 1421)
I'm officially frustrated. Phooey.
6/12 - 150 - 1325 - 10-day ave 1447.7 (7-day ave 1427)
Okay, whatever. I just reset my calories goal 90 lower than before. I'm not all that happy to be that low, although it's not much below my estimated TDEE, but will see what happens. I should be back to truly regular exercise by next week and will add back some calories then.

Back again to what seems to be my body's favorite weight. But we're gonna break through it this time! Our days of rain seem to be over for a while, so I should be able to get at least one, maybe two walks in. A year ago I was walking 2-3 hours/day and losing on 1800 calories. I need to get back to that regime! (Have I said before that moving & being "in transition" for 4 months sucks?) Again, thanks for the inspiration - I read your comments and see that I have no excuse for not getting my exercise in!

Crazy! The only reason I can think of for this increase is that I had Vietnamese lemongrass chicken, a little rice, one crab rangoon, one tiny eggroll, and a cup of clear soup for lunch. Maybe sodium (although it didn't seem that salty)? I walked an hour and did some heavy lifting in the garden, drank lots of water, and my calorie total & macros were fine. Hmmm. We'll see what happens tomorrow, although I'm going to an awards banquet tonight. I have a strategy, though.
Round 43: My second round
R42 SW 186.6 EW 182 (-4.6)
6/07 – 181.8: Miniscule drop, but I’LL TAKE IT!!! Ate well and didn’t eat back exercise calories. Really psyched for my Round 2. Thinking I’ll do another Booster Weekend. I didn’t do all the exercise I wanted last weekend, but the thought of my personal mini challenge kept me focused on eating well.
6/08 – 181.8: Same, and it’s ok. Did no workout yesterday and ate within calories but late. Planning how to stay on point this weekend with eating and exercise. Really want the downward creep to continue each day.
6/09 – 182.8: HUH??? This hurts my feelings because I ate within calories yesterday. Fine, I didn’t formally exercise, other than 45 minutes of housework, but seriously… a whole pound up??? This is too early in my journey for this. This is when I start to waiver, I NEED to go down please..
6/10 – 181.8: Back to starting weight at the beginning of this round. Grateful for this.
6/11 – 181.0: Late weigh in. Pleasant surprise since I had a Twizzlers attack last night. And not just the ordinary Twizzlers – the ones stuffed with creamy icing. I still managed to stay within calories, but way over on sugar and carbs. Gonna drink lots and lots of water today to flush it out.
6//12 – 181.0: Same. Below calories yesterday and one-hour walk. Would love to start running soon, but it’s been so long and I’m a bit nervous of injury. I really don’t want anything to stall my exercise, so I’ll take it slow, build strength and try a bit later. Hoping for a drop tomorrow.--
6/13 – 181.8: Hmmm. Trying not to overreact to this yoyo week. Last night, sweet cravings took over and I blew it. Note to self: next time DH calls to say “would you like anything [read junk food] from the grocery store” say NO!!! Twizzlers (again) and Sweet and Heat popcorn. My unevolved lizard brain is in control of my eating. I also jinxed myself and injured my knee on my walk yesterday. Yes, this is how far gone I am … I injured myself WALKING.
6/14 – 181.8: Well now! I want to be indignant because I ate within calories, but here is the lesson I learned today: weight loss is NOT just the result of calories in and calories out. It is the quality of calories in that makes the difference. For almost 95 per cent of the time, I am within calories. However, I regularly eat candy and chips in single servings so that I remain within my calorie limit, but it shows poorly on the scale. So, the scientific equation for me must be clean calories in, calories out. Doesn’t look like I’ll make my round goal weight of 179 or even close to it this time, but hey … I learned an important lesson, right???
6/15 – 182.4: Very irritated by this round. Grumpy this morning and the scale didn’t help. Ate within calories, but salty late-night snack and Diet Pepsi may have derailed things with high sodium content. Phhht!!!!
