    @dawnbgethealthy, and @Birder165, Congrats on entering a new decade!

    @SamanthaLouiseMence, Congrats on reaching your 5lb loss! "What is going on?" I think your body is saying the same and trying to catch up a bit.

    @tramaine_21, Wishing you much success with your fasting and return to keto!


    Thank you!!

    Happy Sunday, everyone!

    Last week I said, "You don't have to do drastic things. Make small changes, they are more likely to stick."

    Putting my words into practice. Sticking to my calorie goal, AND making sure to walk more. It is working. That is encouraging. Went to the park and walked in the rain yesterday. Today it is really cold and windy.... Might be harder to push myself. Once you get on a roll though, it is motivating to keep going. It is early yet, maybe the wind will subside later...

    Highest weight ever: 254 in October 1999.

    Lowest since 1991: 194.4 November 25, 2018.

    Original starting weight: 243 in 2015.

    MFP Starting weight December 25th, 2016: 233.

    Goal: 180 in however long it takes.

    Weekly averages:

    December 24 - 31: 199.1... OK kids, party time is OVER!
    December 30 - January 6th: 199.8 -Rut roh!!
    January 7 - January 13: 199.4. Moving in the right direction again.
    January 14 - January 20: 198.3. That's more like it!

    Loss for January: 0.8 lbs.

    MFP Loss: 34.7 lbs.

    Total cumulative loss since mid 2015: 44.7 lbs.

    Until next week...

    Move more, eat less.

    January 20th cannot come faster!

    As I mentioned earlier in the month I'll be getting back on the Ketogenic train again. We're going to try this again--the right way! I'm mentally, physically, spiritually and nutritionally prepared--yes, that's a lot! My lowest weight was 187 last summer and I've been on a somewhat stagnant position for a while. Now, keto train is ready to go! Choo-Choo!!
    I've been eating like a crazy person; kind of like eating my "last meals" "treats"--maybe not for good--just not having the junk for a long time. Almond and Coconut flour are going to be my new best friends! I'm excited! This is the year I am finally going to get the victory!

    P.S. I can tell ya right now my weigh-in won't be great but, that's okay I'm not going to be stuck for long! Let's do this!

    Weigh-in: Jan 20th

    ***Extended Fast Starts Jan 20th through (possibly) Jan 27th. 7 whole day fast. My goal is to reach at least 5 days. My fast comprises of: Detox/Tea tox/, Vitamins, Electrolytes, Bone Broth and the occasional Coconut Oil (1 tbsp).*** Lots of Water!!

    Afterward, I go right into the Ketogenic Diet...Low carb, moderate protein and fat. No Keto rash will stop me this time!!

    Prayer Hands. I'll keep you all posted of my progress...

    Sounds like we are both ready to step it up a notch! We are unstoppable!

    January 1st - 181.4
    January 2nd -181.1 So glad to have my new digital scale so that I feel rewarded by "good" days. I am also happy with my decision to weigh every day, it makes me mindful every night that I will be weighing in the morning and affects my choices.
    January 3rd - 181.9
    January 4th - 181.7
    January 5th - 178.7
    January 6th - 182.5 Crazy how everything fluctuates. I couldn't believe yesterday, so weighed 5 times. Up 3.8 from yesterday, but I have skating on the docket for today. Perhaps I will discover a trend in something that I am doing, eating, or something that I am not eating with how it affects me.
    January 7th - 181.7
    January 8th - 183.0 - really don't get the gain this time, I was in really good numbers all week.
    January 9th - 182.2 - I seriously expect a really big loss soon. I am just sticking with it. I am working very long hours this week, maybe my body is holding on to it just in case.
    January 10th - 179.8 - not getting too excited, I see how I can be almost 4 pounds more the next day. Still, glad to be slightly under 180 at least for today : - )
    January 11th - 180.7
    January 12th - 182.4 - I was less disciplined in December and still lost weight, yet this month I am being so careful and am just not dropping weight. I have to stick with it.
    January 13th - 181.4
    January 14th - 181.7
    January 15th - 181.6
    January 16th - 180.3 - I have seen the 70s twice this month already, but not getting my hopes up just yet. Skating yesterday and again today. I work out every day no matter what, but skating seems to be the difference maker. Maybe because it is so fun and relieves me of stress at the same time as torching lots of calories. 16 days of discipline to lose a 1/2 of a pound is ridiculous.
    January 17th - 178.7 - Yay! 2 days of public skating makes such a difference. Wish that I could do it year round, it is the only thing that I enjoy for an entire hour.
    January 18th - 178.7 - No skating, so not even .1 of a pound. I did 30 minutes of Zumba yesterday and only managed to eat 1100 calories. Public skating is 3 days per week unless I drive to a different town. Lol, thinking about that!
    January 19th - 179.2

    Resubmitting this as found my scales were incorrect :( but also forgot that I had actually already managed to lose 10.5lbs from 2016!! so why not give myself the credit for it! :D

    Original starting weight - 150.5
    January starting weight - 140
    January goal - 135
    Ultimate goal - 125

    UPDATE

    January 6th - 140
    January 13th - 135.8 (-4.2lbs) :)

    Update 2

    January 6th - 140
    January 13th - 135.8 (-4.2lbs) :)
    January 20th - 136.8 (+1lb)
    January 27th

    feeling frustrated but I had 1 meal out and a takeaway night with my friend on saturday. Back to it today and hopefully everything will come right. I was fairly confident that the first weight loss was mainly water weight so 3.2lbs lost so far is still a good result.

    Day 2 of 7 Extended/Nutritional Fast! Goal is to lose 5 to 7 lbs.


    July 2017: 187 (lowest)--Jan 20th 2018: 202.6!! Yikes--a 15 lb-gain over the last six months!

    Not good, but it won't last!

    It's okay I expected this; I let my appetite loose because I knew it was going to be the last time for a very, very long time that I was going to indulge in the wheat/sugar/junk etc...I ate like this since the holidays, so I'm not surprised. No need to feel sorry for me, I earned it. :wink:

    Day 2: After 1 day of my fast I can tell I've already lost some water weight and I don't feel as bloated. And, guess what? I don't feel hungry or fatigue, I feel pretty darn good actually! This Southern Gal is going to ride this wave!

    Weigh-in: Jan 28th:
