JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS - ROUND 62
5'5, female, 37.
End R61: 278 (-4.6)
12/14 - 277.2
12/15 - 277.2 - had a crap ton of sodium last night so I'm ok with this.
I am a 50 year old 5'5" woman. I am trying to get healthier to avoid diabetes and all of the problems that come from being overweight.
I have found this challenge to be both rewarding and frustrating! Looking at my weight daily has been a real eye opener to see all of the fluctuations and how a high carb day will affect me and the loss for 2-3 days after.
I need to step up my game if I want to meet any of my goals.

12/14: 172.4 Eating out tonight and heading into the weekend. I want to make good choices. I have got to make good choices. I WILL make good choices.
12/15: 172.6. Win! Went out to eat last night. I chose the southwest salad. Even though I ordered half size, the salad was HUGE (at least a half head of lettuce). Soooo delicious. Lots of add ons but not a lot of anything. Dressing on the side. I've got a plan for today so I'm feeling good about the weekend and not having a "weekend gain" that I have to work on losing next week.

UGW: updated 67-63kg (148-139lbs) end of spring 2019I just realised that R61 was my last full round for the year as I'll be travelling for most of the rest of it. I am considering taking my body scales and/or my yoga mat, depends on my packing skills. The first trip next week is with work here, 3 meals catered for in a lodge, so i'll have to make the best choices available to me, but won't be logging as there is no point with it being all estimates. And then after only one night back, the second trip is for another job in Jordan over xmas followed by a few days on a tourist tour with my mom who will come and join me. I'll be staying in a hotel (and a tent one night), so again no way of logging accurately. I think i might just keep a list of what i've put in my mouth to keep some sort of overview.
R61 end weight: 69.6kg
Fri 12/14 - 70.4kg
Yesterday went ok during the day, but work stress and feeling a little home sick drove me to wine in the evening, after I've done a bit of body weights. And wine lead to crisps, which were incredibly salty, and also chocolate and cookies. Not surprisingly, I skipped Yoga this morning - I should just admit that I only do every other day. Then, as if to confirm that I won't be logging properly for the weekend, the batteries on my food scale seem to be dead. If I had my standard breakfast, I could have estimated, but in anticipation of going away, i'm using up what's left in the fridge/cupboard. Anyway, I know i'll come back to the routine in January, for now i'll focus on not giving up completely.
Sat 12/15 - 70.4kg this is surprising given yesterday, but I have been on the treadmill.
Had a night out after dinner at home. But obviously had snacks when I got home.
I'm really missing my actual home (London) this week, my husband, my cats. There are lots of lovely people here to hang out and have fun with. But I feel quite lonely and also guilty that I'm not with my husband while he's not feeling great. I know food isn' t going to resolve any of these feelings, but it's sure easier to be sad and full than sad and hungry...

Starting Weight 175-178
Current Weight 150.4 end of round 60
Goal Weight 140
Back again! I am honestly just going to try and maintain this round. If I lose an ounce I will be thrilled! We have my DH work Christmas party, my work party, a cookie and candy making family party, and this one ends on a Sunday. Plus we have family coming in Christmas weekend and they are staying with us. The next couple of weeks are going to be rough! I was really hoping to hit the 30 pound mark by the end of the year. I'm close, but don't think it is realistic that I will lose another 2 or 3 pounds by then. I'm happy with what I have done though this year, so I will take it! Good luck everyone!
12/14 - 151.1 back up a little from yesterday. I was under calories, but I did have a peach turnover at 9:00 and dinner at 8:30. Both my daughters 10 and 16 had choir performances at 2 different schools last night. So my husband and I had to juggle seeing both of them and getting dinner done for the other kids. I didn't want to eat out, but I ended up eating really late when we got home. Hopefully I can bring it back down, but I have my DH work Christmas party tonight and then candy and cookie baking with the fam tomorrow. So we will see what happens. All I know is this is a once a year thing, so I will try and make smart decisions, but I am going to enjoy it and have fun! Seeing that 149.xxx would be really nice this round though!
12/15 - 150.4 DH Christmas party was a success. We walked away with $150 playing bingo and I ate well. Saved most of my calories for dinner and ate what I wanted without worry. Stayed away from the desserts and even had a beer. Had a great time and stayed on my path. I also got back into a pair of black really tight pants size 6 that I had not worn in many years. So another win. Family cookie and candy baking today. Oldest son is home from school and helping out. So always good to have him home. 1 event down, 4 to go!

12/15 191.4 fully expected this, had our Christmas party at work last night. Good food and drink. Lots of water today and my yoga class is taking a break for the holidays so I have a new workout I want to do so it looks like the perfect time to try it. Change things up a little might help get over this hump.
@pinkfairy88 We are all here to help you! I’m one of those who reads every post. I don’t comment on every one but having been on this road for decades I think I have experienced almost every bump there is!
@fraukazi Definitely keep some record of what you are eating when you can’t log. When we cruise, I snap a picture of my plate before I start eating and keep a little pad in my purse so I can write things down. Those notes go in my MFP journal in my phone and become part of my “yay, I have internet again” post.
@tiabirdie56 Look how far you have come in 15 months! I hadn’t looked at your spoiler before!
@doseofcrazy Prayers for you and your mom.
@deepwoodslady You are to be commended for catching up on 17 days of posts! That’s almost 2 full rounds! YIKES!! I’m having trouble catching up on 2 days!7

@DebCountsAll, Excellent Debbie!
@Birder165, I'm gonna send you a friend request so you can keep an eye on my carb status, lol. I gotta GET OUT of this decade!
@deepwoodslady, So glad to see you back Donna! You, me, @AR10at50, @AJB1014, @Snowflake1968, @allmannerofthings, @eatingfoodles, @motheroftwins95, who did I miss? A LOT OF US in the 170's, and some of us have been parked here for whatever the reason. I'm getting out. Who's with me? @TonyB0588, You dance up and down the 170's too. Let's get OUT!
On a crazy note, because I know I was looking crazy. I was wearing 3 different sizes of clothing yesterday. 16/18 pants, way baggy, but oh so warm velour. I can't afford to replace everything right now, just hanging around home anyway. A size 12/14 tank top. I use my tank tops as undershirts. Since losing so much weight, I feel cold and need the extra layer. An 8/10 long sleeve shirt. Surprisingly the bigger shirt underneath doesn't look bulky. I bought a pair of size 12 jeans. They're going to be too big in a month I'm afraid. They look a tiny bit saggy in the butt without a belt.
@tiabirdie56 yes! out of the 170's That is my goal for January. Part of me is getting complacent here - enjoying the achievement of being lower than I have been in 22 years (guess how old DS1 is) but I am determined to keep going. I need to loose 10 more to get out of obesity - but for the next 2 weeks I am keeping myself at maintenance. This is the first winter in all those years that I did not gain weight during November so I will be starting the new year in a better place than ever. I like the idea that there is a group of us facing this challenge together. Lets go do this! I am almost looking forward to the holidays being over so I can focus on this again. That being said, I am off to New York for the weekend so weighing and tracking will be on hold for a couple of days. Have a great weekend everyone!7
Round 62 - my 5th round
Female - 58 - 5'7"
OSW: 271.8 (Oct 9/18)
UGW: 165.0 or lower
End R58: 261.2 (-2.2)
End R59: 258.8 (-2.4)
End R60: 256.6 (-2.2)
End R61: 252.0 (-4.6)
My goal for this round is to keep my wits about me! I'd also like to get in to the 240s during this round.
12/13 - 252.0 - End R61 - starting weight for this round.
12/14 - 253.4 - Nothing to worry about. 3168 cals yesterday. I was super hungry all day and gave in to it. For the 3 days before yesterday, my calories averaged 1506/day and that seems to be my "1200". I can't do too many days in a row at that level. I can lose a lot of weight quickly but I get too hungry & tired. That's without even exercising. I should probably aim for at least 1600 - 1700 per day and perhaps that would help me avoid the high calorie days. ***ETA: I just changed my daily goal to 1700. Hopefully that'll help me find a balance.
12/15 - 254.4 - Oops! I seem to sabotage my efforts whenever I get close to a milestone. 4010 calories yesterday!
Yeah, I do that too. Don't know why. I am the same way with lots of things, I get them 95% done and then leave them - it takes a big self push to get them finished. Funny because finishing and reaching milestones feels so good. Take a deep breath and keep on going - you know you can do it.8

R62 SW 173.4 -1.4 (- 26 with this challenge; -34.6 since Jan 1 2018; -56.in total)
Goal for this round - maintenance.
12/15 174 One thing I love about my job is that we close for an extended Christmas break - I am off now until Jan 2. We are heading to New York for a couple of days. Exercise will be good - lots of walking, but food maybe tricky. DS2 is travelling with us and we need to choose restaurants that work with his sensory issues. Have a great weekend everyone.
12/16 travelling no scale
12/17 travelling no scale
@tiabirdie56 I got out my non-elastic waist jeans when my DD told me the elastic waist ones looked like I had “a load in my pants!” They were loose enough that I had to pull them up every time I stood up! LOL
Regarding clothing sizes - no two companies do the same thing. Even within one company there are huge discrepancies on sizing. I sew. Back in the 60’s or 70’s the pattern companies decided to be more like manufacturers’ sizes and came up with “New Sizing” - hahaha. According to the measurements on pattern envelopes, I’m between at 16 and an 18. If I made either of those sizes, I would appear to be wearing a sack! A tank style dress I made two summers ago (size 14) falls off my shoulders! I REALLY wish they all could get together and size for real people! Current rant over.
@salleewins Great job taking the apple!5

Please join us! Starting on 12/14 JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, we will begin Round 62
Anyone can join us at anytime during the round.
Join us! If we stay mindful we can do this, you can do this.
Welcome back past members, welcome new members, let's keep each other accountable for another 10 days!
Here is what you do: Post your daily weight and add little comments along the way of how your day went. Post everyday to let us know how you're doing! Copy and paste the days in your response--tell us how much you lost and other non scale victories (NSV) you'd like to share.
FOR NEWBIES - I find it easiest to copy the dates to a document or note in my device and edit it each morning. Then copy and paste to the message board. MFP will return you to the spot on the board where you left off on your previous visit which is nice to know if you like to scan all of the posts.
12/14 146.5 ~ (Steps 23,296) ~ Today I was about able to get a fabulous swimming session in plus make smart food choices. Yesterday a 1/2 hour before my Body Works class was scheduled, it got canceled AGAIN. So aggravating when you plan to go and they can’t get a reliable instructor, BTW, I would loveeee to be at least in the low 140’s by the end of the year. Focus focus focus.
12/15 144.2 ~ (Steps 23,187) ~ Extremely successful day, I went to a different location, my gym has at least 30 different locations so it was kind of cool checking out a different one. Plus I finally finished Christmas decorating, . My goal too is to be as close to 140 as possible. If I could figure out NOT to snack at night NOT so much, it would of happen long time ago,
👍🏼👍🏼 This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE. 👍🏼👍🏼15
May I point out that -
We ALL are in this challenge TOGETHER no matter our position on the scale.
@GrandmaJackie Which gym do you go to? It sounds like Planet Fitness here. I noticed they are opening another only about 3 miles away.8
