    5'1" 51yo female, northern Michigan~ cherry country. I love football!! Been losing/regaining weight my entire life, since elementary school. I am ready to learn to keep it off. It truly is a mental battle for me. I want to not be sore all the time! I'm not interested in being a marathon runner, just able to walk whenever and wherever.

    Fall 2016 HW 274
    Jan '19 PW 260.0
    100D GW 220.0

    5/6 SW 256.2
    6-May D1 256.2
    7-May D2 254.8
    8-May D3 255.6
    9-May D4 256.6

    14-May D9 254.8
    15-May D10 253.6
    16-May D11 252.8
    17-May D12 252.2
    18-May D13 253.8

    19-May D14 251.4; surprised & thrilled considering I had a binge on Friday night. BUT, I did increase my exercise this week; so it must have offset it. I journaled about my binge to learn triggers and make strategies.
    20-May D15 251.4;
    21-May D16 250.8; Woooohoooo! Two days of not-so-healthy food, but was able to eat in moderation. And recently increased exercised and splitting it up into 3x/day.
    22-May D17 250.0; ~1200 calories and exercise 3x/day (total of 50mins)
    23-May D18 249.4; ~1400 calories and exercise 3x/day (total of 40+mins)
    24-May D19 251.4; binged last night. Dang! Why can't I control myself and remember that it affects the scale drastically!?
    25-May D20 252.8; binged again!!

    26-May D21 250.4; ~1005 calories, 85min exercise, and 15C water. I need to stop playing mind games and just be consistent.
    27-May D22 251.4; ate as planned & tracked, but then after dinner... :( binged. Grrrrr. I must have exercised enough to make it only be a 1# gain. Now I just need to exercise that much 65mins Sat. & 75mins Sun. to make it a loss!!!
    28-May D23 252.6; another binge night. I have to stop feeling sorry for myself. I have had a few days of hating to track, not wanting to exercise, and the "doom" of doing this forever. BUT! What I have to remind myself (easier in the morning than at night) is that I am making this choice because I want my body to be lighter. My knees and joints need me to be lighter so that I'll be in less pain. So I need to get my mind right at night, too! Thanks for listening.
    29-May D24 251.6;
    30-May D25 250.4;
    31-May D26 250.8;
    01-Jun D27 250.0;

    02-Jun D28 248.8;
    03-Jun D29 248.2; over the last couple of days, have increased my morning out time from 20-30, varying calories by the day 1000 to 1300 on weekdays, and on weekends allow up to 1500 as long as exercised 2+ times/day.
    04-Jun D30 249.2; hmmmmm? One snack after dinner-small, under 1300 calories for the day, 53mins exercises burned at three different times. hhhhhhhhhmmmmmmm. TOM? Not worrying, just trying to learn my body.
    05-Jun D31 250.2;
    06-Jun D32 251.2
    07-Jun D33 249.4
    08-Jun D34 247.2

    09-Jun D35 246.4; Whoa! 2.4# loss from last Sunday. I didn't expect that!
    10-Jun D36 246.6
    11-Jun D37 248.2
    12-Jun D38 249.4- late-night binge on D36, and B-Day party for mom D37.
    13-Jun D39 250.0- Not surprised, three nights in a row of late-night binges. :(
    14-Jun D40 249.6
    15-Jun D41 247.8

    16-Jun D42 246.4 - Exercise and sleeping 8hours/night sure does make a difference w/my body.
    17-Jun D43 246.2
    18-Jun D44 246.4 ~ no binges, no losses???!!

    19-Jun D45- 245.8
    20-Jun D46- 245.4

    It's amazing how fast the weight comes on when I have a night binge!! I have been so good this week and thought the scale would jump just a little more. But that's why we are doing this, right!? To learn more about how food affects our body & our weight. And to learn that it's okay that we don't lose 5# in one day! LOL Even though we might gain it in one day. It's progress! Training the mind to NOT be ruled by the scale is going to be a good exercise from these 100 days. Progress!

    Keep working the plan and making good choices!


    I motivated myself to walk 2.0 miles and it paid off!!

    25-Jun D51 243.2
    26-Jun D52 245.0 :frowning: binge last night... darn TOM and salt cravings. Grrrrrrr!
    27-Jun D53 246.0 "funky" "crabby" "moody"
    28-Jun D54 246.2
    29-Jun D55 247.6

    30-Jun D56 249.6 Ouch! Okay, onto a new day, a new week, a new month! But this challenge makes me face the facts. No more hiding ever.
    01-Jul D57- 248.6
    02-Jul D58- 249.4
    03-Jul D59- 249.8
    04-Jul D60- 249.4
    05-Jul D61- 248.8
    06-Jul D62- 249.4 - Okay. Time to get back to good habits. No more excuses. 29.4# in 38 days. Only if I stay focused!!

    07-Jul D63 - 250.0

    It's amazing what NO binging at night can do to the scale in the morning! DUH! Along with exercise. :)

    My Name is Donna, Age 59. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA


    145320379.png


    Starting Weight on June 4th, 2019 Day 30 is 194.8
    August 14- Day 100 GOAL Weight: 180.8


    June 04th - Day 30: 194.8
    Day 31: 195.3
    Day 32: 194.7
    Day 33: 194.7
    Day 34: 194.5
    Day 35: 194.2
    June 10th - Day 36: 194.2
    Day 37: 195.9 Unexplained gain. Good food & exercise plan yesterday.
    Day 38: 195.9 Patience is a virtue.
    Day 39: 195.7
    Day 40: Travel no weigh
    Day 41: 198.6 Travel & Restaurants are my enemy!
    Day 42: 198.1 Working on Fat Adaption & fluid retention
    June 17th - Day 43: 198.4 Travel today
    Day 44: Travel
    Day 45: 198.7 This is what travel & restaurant meals looks like!
    Day 46: 198.1 This is what following through and doing the right thing looks like. Woo Hoo!
    Day 47: 197.7 Working on fat adaption for Keto. Weight starting to go back down.
    Day 48: 197.4 It’s moving like an inchworm, but in the right direction so I’m happy!
    Day 49: 196.4 A nice even whole pound gone forever!!!! Staying on track. Last night’s cravings were hard but I powered through by sipping water. It was worth it!
    June 24th - Day 50: 196.4 Powered thru those cravings yet again. Disappointed in no change on the scale. Calories were low (1392). Carbs were low (11). I burned 3279 Calories. 20,180 steps & 8.54 miles walked yesterday. Ah well, the scale will catch up!
    Day 51: 196.6 A normal fluctuation. I had a great day yesterday & stayed on plan.
    Day 52: 196.6 Stalling……
    Day 53: 196.4 Slow as molasses. Still up from my starting weight : /
    Day 54: 196.4 Like a hamster on a wheel. Working hard but getting nowhere!
    Day 55: 196.8 Tacos did me in on carbs.
    Day 56: 196.0 Yay me!

    June Loss: +1.2 Yikes!!!!


    July 01st - Day 57: 194.6
    Day 58: 193.6 I’ve been working on getting fat adapted again in my LCHF Journey. I think I’ve finally gotten there as my hunger is now minimal. I haven’t had travel in the past 10 days so that has really helped. It’s much easier to control my diet when I’m away from new & exciting restaurants out of town.
    Day 59: 193.6 Holding steady. Not enough water or shedding yesterday. Calories have been a bit low. I will increase everything today to keep the metabolism up. Staying between 1200 & 1400 Calories is the plan.
    Day 60: 193.8 A normal body fluctuation. I did well yesterday but was a little low on calories again. Happy 4th of July to all of us in the USA.
    Day 61: 195.8 What a difference a day makes! I obviously enjoyed my 4th of July holiday. Back on track today & feeling strong. The plan is lots of water & movement & sticking to my food plan.
    Day 62: 195.2 Working on the holiday indulgences.
    Day 63: 194.8 I had an extreme low cal/low carb day yesterday with lots of movement to offset the holiday BBQ & leftovers. Scale is trending back down.
    July 08th - Day 64: 195.9 Bad food day yesterday but phenomenal activity & calorie burn. Hopefully this is water weight.
    Day 65: Travel Day 195.7
    Day 66: After Travel Weigh-In 196.9 And this is what travel looks like on Donna.
    Day 67: 196.7 a bit down. Now to keep up the trend!
    Day 68: 196.0 Keeping up my momentum but activity level dropped. Working on that today.
    Day 69: 194.8 I still need more activity & water but I’m grateful for the whoosh!
    Day 70: 198.0 I smelled my son’s pizza last night & blew it! But 3.2 pounds? That’s ridiculous! Back at it today.
    July 15th - Day 71: 195.8 Okay, love the improvement over yesterday! My lowest weight on this particular challenge was 193.6 on days 58, 59 & 60. Look out 193.6, I’m coming back for you. You’re my next short term goal!
    Day 72: 194.2 Yes I Can!!!! I can do this! Finally back below where I started on this challenge!
    Day 73: 194.4 Normal Fluctuation with a bit of potty trouble. A good day yesterday. I anticipate another good day on plan today. Meals are already planned!
    Day 74: 194.2 Staying on track. A nice walk yesterday evening with a new friend/neighbor.
    Day 75: 194.6 My fault. One small temptation, otherwise a great day!
    Day 76: 194.6 Hanging in there. A great day yesterday but no major exercise due to extreme heat.
    Day 77: 195.4 Yuck! Now, off to DGS’s birthday which will be celebrated with a huge lakeside BBQ & lots of food. Pray for me!
    July 22nd - Day 78: 198.2 After party weigh-in. Lots of sodium & too many calories. I’ve got work to do!
    Day 79: 196.8 Shed water all night which released some bloat from the sodium & party. Travel-sitting & restaurant tomorrow. Strength needed.
    Day 80: Travel Day. 196.2 Hoping not to blow it today & keep the scale at bay.
    Day 81: After Travel Weigh-In. 197.9 More travel for the next few days until Sunday. I will not be able to weigh in on Saturday or Sunday morning.
    Day 82: Travel begins today.
    Day 83: No scale/No weigh
    Day 84: No scale/No weigh
    Day 85: After vacation return no weigh-in
    Day 86: 199.7 Traveling does not look good on me.

    Travel is tough for many of us.

    I read a post a while back that got me thinking. She said something like you have a choice you can lose the weight before him much like saving money for something and then enjoy the trip without too much concern. Or you can gain weight and then I have the struggle afterwards and the fear of having to lose it it would be like taking out a loan.

    So my plan is to lose before a trip, So I can come home and not have a big dieting battle ahead of me.

    Travel disrupts our routine.

    @MadisonMolly2017 An excellent idea I have never thought of. Traveling again today, but these travels lately have been so close together. I will surely try it next time a have a few days between travel! Thanks for another great tip!

    Day/Weight/Comment
    07/21 …..195.4….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
    07/22 …..198.2 ….. After DGS’ birthday party weigh-in. However, it’s the late night binge that bit me in the butt. 2793 Calories In / 3003 Calories Out. 16,678 Total Steps & 7.06 Total Miles. 13/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 5 hours & 6 minutes which was badly needed.

    07/23 …..196.8 ….. Yesterday’s stats: 1293 Calories in / 3289 Whopping Calories Out!. 31 Net Carbs which included Spaghetti Squash Lasagna. 23,543 Total Steps & 10.04 Total Miles. Both are probably my record. 13/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 4 hours & 50 minutes & woke up tired but am doing okay now. I walked for 60 minutes, rigorously cleaned cabins for 97 minutes & I danced for 51 minutes. Sample Song: “Black Magic Woman” by Santana.

    07/24 …..196.2 ….. Travel Day. Yesterday’s stats: 1121 Calories In / 2458 Calories Out. 28 Net Carbs. 12,207 Total Steps & 5.17 Total Miles. 10/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 3 hours & 16 minutes. I walked 43 minutes, did 44 minutes of general light/moderate house cleaning.

    07/25 …..197.9 ….. After Travel weigh-in. I really don’t want to talk about it. It was lunch AND dinner out because of it being such a long day out of town afterall. Let’s just say that I’ve got some work to do. Traveling tomorrow and I will not be back until Sunday. I use a PC and I will not likely have access to a computer. I have an older phone but I can’t seem to get the app to work I’ll go by my daughters this evening for help. I would like to be able to log in while away on my phone. I hate to break my mfp streak. I hate to go away for the next 3 days but emotionally & socially it seems vital to me right now. It is odd & unexpected the way things change when your husband passes away and you are not longer a “couple”. You feel more like a 5th wheel. Not at family events, but socially. This lady friend that I am going with was someone I met as a customer of mine this past spring. She is recently divorced and feels much of what I’ve been feeling the past 3 years. So this trip is important to both of us emotionally & socially. We plan on having great fun! It will be filled with lots of activities & food choices will not always be something I can 100% control, but I plan on doing my best, even though my best is just not good enough yet. Notice, I said YET. I’ll never give up the good fight!

    07/26 …..197.9 ….. Travel begins. I really want to drink more water but I usually don’t get as much during travel & events. I am going to try to focus on that this time.

    07/27 …..xxxxx ….. Travel. No scale.

    07/28 …..xxxxx ….. Travel, no morning scale.

    07/29 …..xxxxx ….. After travel weigh-in. Nope. Not even going there! Buffet dinner on the way home last night. Today, not so good. Grab & go. So behind in work in the cabins due to all the checkouts yesterday that now need to be cleaned. Also, contractors showed up today to dig up behind cabins 3 & 4 to resolve some slow (septic) plumbing issues (clogs easily) so I am s.t.r.e.t.c.h.e.d to my limit on time. HUGE part of my yard dug up. Tons of cabin laundry awaits. My house is a mess from my brother (the house sitter while I was gone). And I would still LOVE to walk this evening if the thunderstorms stop. Not a good round for me but I'll check back in tomorrow. Have a good evening everyone!

    07/30 …..199.7 ….. Does spit have calories? If so, I’m afraid if I swallow I will hit the 200 mark and that is not something I will accept after all my hard work, so today will be a day under 1200 calories & under 20 net carbs. Yesterday both were still too high on a grab & go today. Today is better planned. Yesterday I burned 2771 Calories, 13,905 Total Steps & 5.88 Total Miles. I rigorously cleaned cabins for 68 minutes burning 333 extra calories. Luckily I’m like a Phoenix and I always rise up from the ashes. I am thinking about going downstate (about 2 hours each way) to take my son & 2 of my grandson’s to see The Lion King. It would involve eating at a restaurant again. My son & I are SO EXCITED about the movie & the trip would be to the closest movie theater from us in general. It would involve at least one restaurant but if I stuck to ordering breakfast foods it would be a tremendous help in the food section of my plan. I’ll try to organize that trip today for asap.

    07/31 …..199.7 ….. Travel again today & leaving very soon. I’ve packed travel snacks to avoid gas station junk. I will be back tonight. I will be eating at a restaurant for dinner, but I will avoid all snacking at the theater. Yesterdays stats: 1726 Calories In / 2645 Calories Out. 78 Net Carbs. 14,330 Total Steps & 6.06 Total Miles. 13/13 Fitbit Step Hours. I slept 5 hours & 3 minutes. I walked 71 minutes with my neighbor & I light to moderate cleaning for 100 minutes. Not a perfect day but I stayed moving as much as possible. A disappointing round full of travel & bad choices. Great job to everyone. I saw lots of hard work & dedication that payed off for many! See you next round!

    Day 44: Travel
    Day 45: 198.7 This is what travel & restaurant meals looks like!
    Day 46: 198.1 This is what following through and doing the right thing looks like. Woo Hoo!
    Day 47: 197.7 Working on fat adaption for Keto. Weight starting to go back down.
    Day 48: 197.4 It’s moving like an inchworm, but in the right direction so I’m happy!
    Day 49: 196.4 A nice even whole pound gone forever!!!! Staying on track. Last night’s cravings were hard but I powered through by sipping water. It was worth it!
    June 24th - Day 50: 196.4 Powered thru those cravings yet again. Disappointed in no change on the scale. Calories were low (1392). Carbs were low (11). I burned 3279 Calories. 20,180 steps & 8.54 miles walked yesterday. Ah well, the scale will catch up!

    July 01st - Day 57: 194.6
    Day 58: 193.6 I’ve been working on getting fat adapted again in my LCHF Journey. I think I’ve finally gotten there as my hunger is now minimal. I haven’t had travel in the past 10 days so that has really helped. It’s much easier to control my diet when I’m away from new & exciting restaurants out of town.
    Day 59: 193.6 Holding steady. Not enough water or shedding yesterday. Calories have been a bit low. I will increase everything today to keep the metabolism up. Staying between 1200 & 1400 Calories is the plan.
    Day 60: 193.8 A normal body fluctuation. I did well yesterday but was a little low on calories again. Happy 4th of July to all of us in the USA.
    Day 61: 195.8 What a difference a day makes! I obviously enjoyed my 4th of July holiday. Back on track today & feeling strong. The plan is lots of water & movement & sticking to my food plan.
    Day 62: 195.2 Working on the holiday indulgences.
    Day 63: 194.8 I had an extreme low cal/low carb day yesterday with lots of movement to offset the holiday BBQ & leftovers. Scale is trending back down.
    July 08th - Day 64: 195.9 Bad food day yesterday but phenomenal activity & calorie burn. Hopefully this is water weight.
    Day 65: Travel Day 195.7
    Day 66: After Travel Weigh-In 196.9 And this is what travel looks like on Donna.
    Day 67: 196.7 a bit down. Now to keep up the trend!
    Day 68: 196.0 Keeping up my momentum but activity level dropped. Working on that today.
    Day 69: 194.8 I still need more activity & water but I’m grateful for the whoosh!
    Day 70: 198.0 I smelled my son’s pizza last night & blew it! But 3.2 pounds? That’s ridiculous! Back at it today.
    July 15th - Day 71: 195.8 Okay, love the improvement over yesterday! My lowest weight on this particular challenge was 193.6 on days 58, 59 & 60. Look out 193.6, I’m coming back for you. You’re my next short term goal!
    Day 72: 194.2 Yes I Can!!!! I can do this! Finally back below where I started on this challenge!
    Day 73: 194.4 Normal Fluctuation with a bit of potty trouble. A good day yesterday. I anticipate another good day on plan today. Meals are already planned!
    Day 74: 194.2 Staying on track. A nice walk yesterday evening with a new friend/neighbor.
    Day 75: 194.6 My fault. One small temptation, otherwise a great day!
    Day 76: 194.6 Hanging in there. A great day yesterday but no major exercise due to extreme heat.
    Day 77: 195.4 Yuck! Now, off to DGS’s birthday which will be celebrated with a huge lakeside BBQ & lots of food. Pray for me!
    July 22nd - Day 78: 198.2 After party weigh-in. Lots of sodium & too many calories. I’ve got work to do!
    Day 79: 196.8 Shed water all night which released some bloat from the sodium & party. Travel-sitting & restaurant tomorrow. Strength needed.
    Day 80: Travel Day. 196.2 Hoping not to blow it today & keep the scale at bay.
    Day 81: After Travel Weigh-In. 197.9 More travel for the next few days until Sunday. I will not be able to weigh in on Saturday or Sunday morning.
    Day 82: Travel begins today.
    Day 83: No scale/No weigh
    Day 84: No scale/No weigh
    Day 85: After vacation return no weigh-in
    Day 86: 199.7 Traveling does not look good on me.
    Day 87: 199.7 Traveling again today.

    5'1" 51yo female, northern Michigan~ cherry country. I love football!! Been losing/regaining weight my entire life, since elementary school. I am ready to learn to keep it off. It truly is a mental battle for me. I want to not be sore all the time! I'm not interested in being a marathon runner, just able to walk whenever and wherever.

    18-May D13 253.8

    19-May D14 251.4; surprised & thrilled considering I had a binge on Friday night. BUT, I did increase my exercise this week; so it must have offset it. I journaled about my binge to learn triggers and make strategies.
    20-May D15 251.4;
    21-May D16 250.8; Woooohoooo! Two days of not-so-healthy food, but was able to eat in moderation. And recently increased exercised and splitting it up into 3x/day.
    22-May D17 250.0; ~1200 calories and exercise 3x/day (total of 50mins)
    23-May D18 249.4; ~1400 calories and exercise 3x/day (total of 40+mins)
    24-May D19 251.4; binged last night. Dang! Why can't I control myself and remember that it affects the scale drastically!?
    25-May D20 252.8; binged again!!

    26-May D21 250.4; ~1005 calories, 85min exercise, and 15C water. I need to stop playing mind games and just be consistent.
    27-May D22 251.4; ate as planned & tracked, but then after dinner... :( binged. Grrrrr. I must have exercised enough to make it only be a 1# gain. Now I just need to exercise that much 65mins Sat. & 75mins Sun. to make it a loss!!!
    28-May D23 252.6; another binge night. I have to stop feeling sorry for myself. I have had a few days of hating to track, not wanting to exercise, and the "doom" of doing this forever. BUT! What I have to remind myself (easier in the morning than at night) is that I am making this choice because I want my body to be lighter. My knees and joints need me to be lighter so that I'll be in less pain. So I need to get my mind right at night, too! Thanks for listening.

    01-Jun D27 250.0;

    02-Jun D28 248.8;
    03-Jun D29 248.2; over the last couple of days, have increased my morning out time from 20-30, varying calories by the day 1000 to 1300 on weekdays, and on weekends allow up to 1500 as long as exercised 2+ times/day.
    04-Jun D30 249.2; hmmmmm? One snack after dinner-small, under 1300 calories for the day, 53mins exercises burned at three different times. hhhhhhhhhmmmmmmm. TOM? Not worrying, just trying to learn my body.

    09-Jun D35 246.4; Whoa! 2.4# loss from last Sunday. I didn't expect that!
    10-Jun D36 246.6
    11-Jun D37 248.2
    12-Jun D38 249.4- late-night binge on D36, and B-Day party for mom D37.
    13-Jun D39 250.0- Not surprised, three nights in a row of late-night binges. :(
    14-Jun D40 249.6
    15-Jun D41 247.8

    16-Jun D42 246.4 - Exercise and sleeping 8hours/night sure does make a difference w/my body.
    17-Jun D43 246.2
    18-Jun D44 246.4 ~ no binges, no losses???!!

    19-Jun D45- 245.8
    20-Jun D46- 245.4

    It's amazing how fast the weight comes on when I have a night binge!! I have been so good this week and thought the scale would jump just a little more. But that's why we are doing this, right!? To learn more about how food affects our body & our weight. And to learn that it's okay that we don't lose 5# in one day! LOL Even though we might gain it in one day. It's progress! Training the mind to NOT be ruled by the scale is going to be a good exercise from these 100 days. Progress!

    Keep working the plan and making good choices!


    I motivated myself to walk 2.0 miles and it paid off!!

    Day 45: 198.7 This is what travel & restaurant meals looks like!
    Day 46: 198.1 This is what following through and doing the right thing looks like. Woo Hoo!
    Day 47: 197.7 Working on fat adaption for Keto. Weight starting to go back down.
    Day 48: 197.4 It’s moving like an inchworm, but in the right direction so I’m happy!
    Day 49: 196.4 A nice even whole pound gone forever!!!! Staying on track. Last night’s cravings were hard but I powered through by sipping water. It was worth it!
    June 24th - Day 50: 196.4 Powered thru those cravings yet again. Disappointed in no change on the scale. Calories were low (1392). Carbs were low (11). I burned 3279 Calories. 20,180 steps & 8.54 miles walked yesterday. Ah well, the scale will catch up!
    Day 51: 196.6 A normal fluctuation. I had a great day yesterday & stayed on plan.
    Day 52: 196.6 Stalling……
    Day 53: 196.4 Slow as molasses. Still up from my starting weight : /
    Day 54: 196.4 Like a hamster on a wheel. Working hard but getting nowhere!

    Day 56: 196.0 Yay me!

    June Loss: +1.2 Yikes!!!!


    July 01st - Day 57: 194.6
    Day 58: 193.6 I’ve been working on getting fat adapted again in my LCHF Journey. I think I’ve finally gotten there as my hunger is now minimal. I haven’t had travel in the past 10 days so that has really helped. It’s much easier to control my diet when I’m away from new & exciting restaurants out of town.
    Day 59: 193.6 Holding steady. Not enough water or shedding yesterday. Calories have been a bit low. I will increase everything today to keep the metabolism up. Staying between 1200 & 1400 Calories is the plan.
    Day 60: 193.8 A normal body fluctuation. I did well yesterday but was a little low on calories again. Happy 4th of July to all of us in the USA.
    Day 61: 195.8 What a difference a day makes! I obviously enjoyed my 4th of July holiday. Back on track today & feeling strong. The plan is lots of water & movement & sticking to my food plan.
    Day 62: 195.2 Working on the holiday indulgences.
    Day 63: 194.8 I had an extreme low cal/low carb day yesterday with lots of movement to offset the holiday BBQ & leftovers. Scale is trending back down.
    July 08th - Day 64: 195.9 Bad food day yesterday but phenomenal activity & calorie burn. Hopefully this is water weight.
    Day 65: Travel Day 195.7
    Day 66: After Travel Weigh-In 196.9 And this is what travel looks like on Donna.
    Day 67: 196.7 a bit down. Now to keep up the trend!
    Day 68: 196.0 Keeping up my momentum but activity level dropped. Working on that today.
    Day 69: 194.8 I still need more activity & water but I’m grateful for the whoosh!
    Day 70: 198.0 I smelled my son’s pizza last night & blew it! But 3.2 pounds? That’s ridiculous! Back at it today.
    July 15th - Day 71: 195.8 Okay, love the improvement over yesterday! My lowest weight on this particular challenge was 193.6 on days 58, 59 & 60. Look out 193.6, I’m coming back for you. You’re my next short term goal!
    Day 72: 194.2 Yes I Can!!!! I can do this! Finally back below where I started on this challenge!
    Day 73: 194.4 Normal Fluctuation with a bit of potty trouble. A good day yesterday. I anticipate another good day on plan today. Meals are already planned!
    Day 74: 194.2 Staying on track. A nice walk yesterday evening with a new friend/neighbor.
    Day 75: 194.6 My fault. One small temptation, otherwise a great day!
    Day 76: 194.6 Hanging in there. A great day yesterday but no major exercise due to extreme heat.
    Day 77: 195.4 Yuck! Now, off to DGS’s birthday which will be celebrated with a huge lakeside BBQ & lots of food. Pray for me!
    July 22nd - Day 78: 198.2 After party weigh-in. Lots of sodium & too many calories. I’ve got work to do!
    Day 79: 196.8 Shed water all night which released some bloat from the sodium & party. Travel-sitting & restaurant tomorrow. Strength needed.
    Day 80: Travel Day. 196.2 Hoping not to blow it today & keep the scale at bay.
    Day 81: After Travel Weigh-In. 197.9 More travel for the next few days until Sunday. I will not be able to weigh in on Saturday or Sunday morning.
    Day 82: Travel begins today.
    Day 83: No scale/No weigh
    Day 84: No scale/No weigh
    Day 85: After vacation return no weigh-in
    Day 86: 199.7 Traveling does not look good on me.
    Day 87: 199.7 Traveling again today.

    July Loss:0 Gain 5.1 pounds immediately during much travel.


    Aug. 01st - Day 88: 202.0 The Lion King was fantastic. The buffet a bit too much. All in all, great travels with son & grandson to that far away movie theater & town we love to visit!
