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!
6/16 - Saturday - 197.6 - later than usual weigh in, but yeaaass!! Stuck to my plan at dinner party last night! A good day today, feeling more comfortable in my own skin. See ya next round!5

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.
6/16 231.2 / Not a great round with weight. Good with food. Today was more calories than recent days. I'm not too worried about it.1

6/14 192 lbs AM: various 30 day challenges. No other exercise today. Went 678 calories over. No breakfast because I craved fried chicken wings and French fries from Chinese spot. Dinner was crap at a meeting. Won’t get back to starting round weight. Good point: no pretzels! I’m thinking maybe I should just have the pretzels as I seem to be eating everything else!?!?
6/15 192 lbs did not log my foods today. Will do so tomorrow.
6/16 192 lbs. did not log my foods today. Had so much fun with my middle grand. Eating was not the best.

6/07 - 139.8 - I did a yoga class yesterday for the first time in 2 years. Every muscle in my body is screaming at me!!!!
6/08 - 141.9. eeek!!
6/09 - 141.0 - muscles are nearly back to normal so went to the gym!
6/10 - 141.0 - need to cut back on the snacking so I'm trying something new.....only 3 snacks a day (doesn't matter what it is). At the moment its probably way over 10 a day. Anything and everything that's got sugar in it.
It's 11:20am and I've already had 2! It's probably going to be a tough day!
6/11 - 140.6 - Thanks for the tips @jerier
I had 5 snacks yesterday. Big improvement on last week! The 'table of fair game' at work is the worse for me. There is always cake, biscuits etc and (at the moment) I can't resist!
Off to the gym to try to burn off some of those chocolate calories.
6/12 - forgot to weigh myself!

My Round 1
SW: 132.4 (6/7/18)
GW: 123 lbs
6/07- 132.4 - lots of brown rice and broccoli for lunch and dinner. Need to make sleep a priority.
6/08 - 133.2 -always annoying when you eat no processed food, lots of veggies and come in heavier. Gym and yoga. Intermittent fast from 6pm-11am.
6/09 132.8. Yay. Was expecting to have gained weight as we did sushi last night but I don’t use say sauce so winning. I slept through my morning alarm to go run. Sleep continues to be a need. Plan to run later and indoor Rock climb.
6/10-133. I had 2 beers and pasta for dinner last night. I needed the carbs. Lots of physical activity so came in under my calorie allowance. 2 hour solid effort bike ride this am. Goal is to not “reward” myself with junky food and /or beer but rather healthy foods and just one beer or glass of wine. I got sleep last night and feel so much better!
6/11 - 132.8. intermittent fast. Last night I ate a frozen veggie pizza. Not the best but not the worst. Enjoyed adult beverages, too. Early dinner last night to prepare for morning fast. Headed to the gym and then a short hill repeat run.
6/12 - 133. Drag. But I am not surprised. Work has been very busy. Popped another veggie pizza in the oven. I only ate 2/3 of it this time. I ate a big arugula salad first. I know I am making good decisions and eating within and under my calorie allowance. Eventually I think things will give.
6/13 -135. Good times. I am actually OK with this as I was expecting it. Did a nice workout at the climbing gym yesterday and went out to eat for a bday. I went 23 cal over my budget. I chose a fish sandwich on rye bread, a plain baked potato and I had two beers. It’s incredible how much sodium they put in food when you eat out. The cool thing is my harness for climbing is getting bigger. Ha. So clothes fitting better even if the scale mocks me today.
6/14 134. Aaaand it’s THAT time of the month so...I feel in a few days I’ll be back down as I am retaining water like a sinking boat. Gave in to salt cravings last night but didn’t give in to chocolate cravings. I also drank a super delicious big old beer to help with my cramps. Advil would have been a better choice. 2 calories over totally budget.
6/15 - intermittent fast. 133.8. I am certain I am holding on to water and that is my story! Really, I think the next round will see a bit of drop. The positive to take away is I am raising my own awareness about my food choices and making more and more good choices that will lead me to my end goal.
6/16 -133.4. I did 2 workouts yesterday but also had a bday party event…I was even with calories, thanks to the double workouts. I am not ready to take on round 44 with total focus!!
ROUND - 43
6/7 - 184.8....Off to a good start for this round!
6/8 - 185.2....Oopsie. Hit a hickup last night. Must do better over the weekend!

My official weekly weigh in, is Tuesday evening @ TOPS, so my ticker tape will reflect that loss.
My daily weight is on my home scale, so I can monitor how my week is going.
My ultimate goal is 175lbs, so any loss is a good loss.
I’m in. See y’all in the morning
Current weight 178.6
End of round goal. 175
6/8 - 178.2
6/9 - 177.6
6/10 176.4 (shocked but thrilled)
6/12- 177.8. I don’t even know what to say. Frustrating
6/13- 177.8 As ugly as this might get, I’m not giving up on this round!
6/14 - 177.8
6/15 - 178.9
Hi. I am Donna. I am on the low carb keto diet because I need to lose weight but also quickly lower my blood glucose levels since I am Type 2 diabetic and my glucose numbers got to a very dangerous level. So far it is working. My weight loss goals are also being met although I have found when it comes to weight loss, all true diets will work if you stick with it consistantly and try to get in some physical fitness as well. This is my first 10 day challenge. Good luck to us all (no matter which type of diet or physically activity you have chosen). We can do this folks!
6/07 193.8 lbs. I Had a doctor appointment today and found out my blood levels are all perfect including my cholesterol so I am thrilled. Dr. supports my keto diet and gave me some more tips. Stuck to my diet very good today although I still battle occasional cravings.
6/08 195.1 lbs. Darn that BBQ I attended anyway. I SHOULD NOT have had dessert either. Tomorrow will be better. I'm human and sometimes fail. But I always jump back on the horse and ride again, so I vow to be faithful tomorrow....
6/09 194.6 Going in the right directions finally. I have walked 1.5 - 3.0 miles each day including today. I have been steadfast to the diet today. I am proud of myself today.
6/10 194.6 I walked 13,180 steps today with lots of physical activity. Most of this was work related and not repetitive exercise, but still healthy on the heart and burns a couple hundred calories. I stuck to my diet today with very little temptation. Some days are just better than others!
6/11 193.6….. Down one pound. Slow movement. I have Intermittent fasted each and every day on the 12:8 plan. Today I also practiced an Egg Fast with very low calories to give myself a jolt as I wonder if I am hitting a bit of a plateau. Had 12,812 steps by 11:53 pm. Took a nice 1.5 mile moderate paced walk. REMEMBER FOLKS, ANY PROGRESS IS STILL PROGRESS. SOME ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE NSV'S. I REMAIN PROUD OF US ALL.
6/12 191.0 whoo hoo. Finally lost some weight which likely includes water weight, but Hey! It needed to go too! Also, I finally went to the bathroom (if you know what I mean). Sometimes hard to go on this particular diet due to lack of whole grains. I Didn’t feel too well today. Less than 6000 steps on my fitbit. No walk in the neighborhood. But I stuck to my diet very well. That’s the report on my physical. My mental and emotional state was very good because I feel I scored a scale victory. I’m just a smidgen from the 180’s. whoo hoo! This challenge is keeping me honest and keeping me real. I hope it is helping all of you too.
6/13 190.8 Out of town today / travel so I know I will be going off course. Will likely see a bump up tomorrow. Also had no ability to take my normal walk so I did a few stretches. Clocked in 6,700 steps, over 2 miles and 7 flights of stairs by 11:30 pm. I have a feeling I am really going to pay for all of this tomorrow. I got in lots and lots of water today though which is a NSV for me.
6/14 196.0 Likely a lot of water weight accompanying the fat. 3393 Calories yesterday while out of town. Over 300 carbs. Lots of sodium. While it was good that I drank lots of water, I think I am water-logged and bloated. I managed a 3 mile walk at moderate pace today and walked a total of over 7 miles including my work. I hope tomorrow will bring a better weight.
6/15 195.8 so easy to gain, so hard to lose. I have walked 7400 steps today but could not take my 3 mile neighborhood walk due to work. Total work related miles walked was over 3 miles. Lots of coffee (black but not much water.) I intermittent fasted for 15 hours before eating. I hope our last day will show some improvement. Diet was healthy today and within my macros.
6/16 195.6 not where I wanted to end . So many days to make up for one day but I’ll get back there. I am ready for the next challenge!
Age 60, 5'4.5" and eating in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet. I eat back exercise calories, or I would be starving and cranky. Hubby does not like cranky me. Changed MFP setting 5/5/18 [R39] to 1/2# per week loss ~ within 10# of UGW, weight loss had stalled 3 months + was feeling hungry more often.
MFP SW 195 ~ Goals: #1 = 150 / #2 = 145 [normal BMI] / #3 = maintain 140 - 145 / no goal dates ~ I get there when I get there
Thrilled with my 2/15/18 annual physical: BP 110/68, pulse 64 and BMI 26.14
Ecstatic with my 5/15/18 annual workplace Health Risk Assessment: waist smallest since 2007 and BMI 25.6
My digital scale only has 1/2# increments, and I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. Weigh first thing in morning / comments reflect prior day.

I had been stuck in or around 152 for about 6 week or more. During this go round, I took the No Junk Food Challenge and participated in some step challenges with friends on Fitbit. Did the trick to get me off that plateau. I may be down to a new one, but at least my BMI is "Normal" now--for the first time in my adult life, I think.2

Obstacles to overcome during round: Dinner with Hubs on the 9. Setting up an exercise schedule/routine that I can live with.
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.
6/15- 150. 45m The Body Project. Food was good. Life is falling into a good routine.
6/16- 149.5. 30m Jill. Stayed away from alcohol (not a typical weekend). YAY! Food was descent.
puddlegoober Posts: 291 MemberI'm fully back on Keto, and it kinda feels like I never left. I haven't had an official weigh-in below 190, but I have seen it on my scale, and I'm really excited. The end of last round was fantastic (~5lbs in 3 days), and it looks like it "stuck." Going on vacation next Tuesday for 1 week (and with my in-law side of the family... 10 people... in a van), and I'm really happy that I got back on Keto before this. It's just not THAT hard to maintain, and it gives me an extra reason (for them) to stay away from things I've always wanted to stay away from.
Historical SW (January 2015): 245 lbs

Total loss (since 1/14/18, but before this round): 29.8 lbs
Average weight loss per round: 2.08 lbs
R43 SW = 190.2, SBF% = 15.3
Goals for this round: get below 189.9 and stay there; continue to monitor body fat percentage
6/07 = 190.4 (+0.2), BF% = 15.3 (no change). I'm really happy to see this number, as I was not fully convinced that yesterday's weigh-in was accurate. I snacked a bit much yesterday, which led to me eating at about maintenance. I'm feeling super-positive right now. I have basketball and the weightlifting tonight. I think I'm eventually going to alternate my weightlifting and basketball days; I'm not sure it will make a difference health/fitness-wise, but it should improve the likelihood that I get my weightlifting in. At this point, when I have to sacrifice something (because of time), I just do legs at the gym, not upper body.
6/08 = 191.2 (+0.8), BF% = 15.3. This is "one of those days." I played basketball last night, I had a healthy dinner, and I ate well yesterday; everything indicated that today should have been, at worst, maintaining my weight. Daily fluctuations; sometimes they make sense, sometimes they don't. But, given my current Zen state, I'm going to see this for what it is. Basketball was mediocre last night, but I didn't get hurt. I'm experiencing some ridiculous drama at work today (petty personal drama), and it has me in a bad mood.
6/09 = 190.2 (-1.0), BF% = 15.3. Basically A WHOOSH™. I ate well yesterday. I'm right in the edge of 189.x. Trying not to obsess about it. I play basketball in a little over an hour, and I'm going to stop at the gym. This could be the day. I'm going to eat very mindfully today. Going it for drinks tonight for a friend's birthday, so it's going to be tough. 2 drinks max, and they must be Keto-friendly.
6/10 = 190.8 (+0.6), BF% = 15.3. Yesterday was a mixed bag. Basketball was great, eating, not so much. My wife was a horrible, insidious influence. I know my eating is my responsibility, but she was in rare form. I need to find a kind way to talk with her about this, because I can deal with temptation, but not sabotage from my wife.
6/11 = 192.6 (+1.8), BF% = 15.5. I feel like this is "leftover" from my day before, because I was within calories, macros, and whatever. Maybe I had a "little" more bacon last night than I should have. I have been a little light on sleep the past few days, and I've also been a little light on water, and both of those could be affecting things. I'm playing basketball and going to the gym tonight. I'll keep trying to figure this out. Not going to let this get me down.
6/12 = 191.0 (-1.6), BF% = 15.3. Total BWHOOSH™ (formerly known as BOUNCE BACK™). Finally a decent weigh-in after basketball last night. My knee felt loose/sore at basketball, though, so it wasn't all good news. I went to the gym before basketball last night, lifted weights (including legs), but I have to admit that I skipped the gym last Thursday and Saturday (but still played basketball). I know better. Thinking back, I'm pretty sure I know what's going on, as it's happened before. Part of me (hell, all of me) wants to be "normal" again, someone who isn't dealing with the aftereffects of reconstructive knee surgery 20 years ago, including pretty severe osteoarthritis. I would love to be able to play basketball and NOT need to lift weights every time I go in order to keep my reconstructed knee and associated leg in its best possible state (which still sucks). This experience, once again, reminds me that this day will never come. It's a little depressing, but this is old, old news. If I go to the gym regularly (one gym workout per one day of basketball), I generally feel much better. I'm recommitting to doing this. Again. On a happier note, I'm going on vacation for a week! I will not be weighing in again until Wednesday, 6/20. Anyone have any ideas regarding how I should "report" this in my history (SW, EW, AW, etc.)? *Edit* Last night I asked my wife to take the following phrase out of her vocabulary when it comes to me and food, "Maybe you can just have a little."
6/13 = no weigh-in. Driving to Sedona this morning for a weeklong vacation with my in-laws (9 adults plus one 5-year-old and and infant). I got very little sleep last night. Our plan was to rent a huge can and drive together, but that fell apart last second, and we spent an extra 2 hours coming up with an alternative (renting a car and a Suburban). I'm exhausted, but excited about keeping to my Keto and trying to at least maintain my weight until I get back.
6/14 = no weigh-in. I did pretty well yesterday when I was in control, but ordering pizza for dinner I couldn't do anything about. Just ate the toppings and threw away the bread. I different did my best, but I'm hoping for some better choices (opportunities) for food. Sedona is gorgeous.
6/15 = no weigh-in. Really busy, with a late night.
6/16 = no weigh-in. Got to Vegas last night. Went to the gym this morning. Weighed myself on a mechanical scale. If I trust it completely (which I don't), I'm about 6 lbs up. We'll see when I get home.1
Round 42: 179
6/08: 179...keep reminding myself this will take time
6/10 didn't weigh
6/12 didn't weigh
6/13 181...ugh need to drink more water
6/14 178....not sure what's going on here, but I'm not going to question
6/15 178.8....holding onto it
tiabirdie56 Posts: 3,695 Member@sue_01, I have been meaning to comment on your posts. I think about something to say and then change my mind, then get sidetracked. You are one of the strongest women that I have ever encountered. All that you have been through with your health and you forge ahead to restore it. I imagine that your personality is very vibrant, it seems so through your words. When I think of you, I say a prayer for you for the Heavenly Father to restore your health and will ask that he put people in your life's path to help you with your recovery.2
