    Day/Weight/Comment
    09/20 127.2 I feel like I will always need to be part of this group, can it please go on forever? Although my habits are mostly squared away (12-8 eating window, track my calories, weigh in daily, that's it!), I do feel there will *never* be a day when I don't love my favorite treats and meals. Donuts, c'mon, I will heart them forever! And the only way I have found to enjoy donuts- or pizza, homemade cookies, French fries, etc.- is to stick to the habits I just outlined. I have lost 30 lbs eating everything I love, including ice cream every day. But. I. Need. This. Challenge. Accountability is everything.
    09/21 DNW
    09/22 DNW
    09/23 DNW
    09/24 DNW
    09/25 129.2 Yikes. My head hasn't been in it so far this round, and it's showing.
    09/26 128.4 I didn't eat nutritiously yesterday, but I did stay under calories, so there's some progress.
    09/27 127 Heading into the weekend in a good place. My body seems to love this weight.
    09/28 128 Meh.
    09/29 127.4 Ha, basically back to where I started! I'm beginning to wonder if I honestly need to lose the "last" 3 lbs to get to my UGW. I'm 5'7", 127 lbs, down from 158, and I feel comfortable with where I am, though I'm far from having achieved my "dream" body lol. I've gotten to this point since March, so it's taken about 7 months to lose 30 lbs. Not super fast, but steady loss. My conclusion?

    I DON'T NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT, I NEED TO TONE UP. That means [said in a whisper] I think I *might* be in maintenance-land, friends, but I'm scared to declare it officially.

    RESULTS SUMMARY
    Round 71 loss: (-2.4)
    Round 72 loss: (-2.4)
    Round 73 loss: (+0.6)

    Round 86 loss: (-1.4)
    Round 87 loss: (+0.4)
    Round 88 loss: (-2.7)
    Round 89 loss: (+0.2)
    Round 90 loss: (+0.2)

    Total lost after 20 rounds: 30.4 lbs

    That's brilliant ! Well done ! You will find toning up will make a massive differance to your body, I know for you it's not easy, but I am sure you could find some easier exercises on the "net", even seated exercises will help I'm sure. Good luck in the next challenge for you. Please stay with us though, I enjoy your posts xx

    Day/Weight/Comment

    09/20: 307.1 lbs (+4.0) … ugh. I’m used to the idea that fluctuations are normal and to be expected, but it’s still a kick to the gut each time it happens. Especially when it’s a bigger one like this.

    09/21: 307.8 lbs (+0.7) … apparently yesterday wasn’t high enough of a water weight gain.

    09/22: 304.8 lbs (-3.0) … some uptick recovery, but still up a decent chunk over my start weight for this round. Hopefully I’ll continue seeing a downward trend tomorrow. Completed Couch to 5k Week 6 Day 1 this morning.

    09/23: 304.7 lbs (-0.1) … at least it wasn’t an increase!

    09/24: 303.0 lbs (-1.7) … whew, what a relief. A new low, if only by .1 lb, is very welcome after a ~5 lb uptick in weight! Glad to be on the correct side of zero for this challenge now. Completed Couch to 5k Week 6 Day 2 this morning… the last workout with walking intervals in the program. I was feeling good, so I passed on the walking in the middle and turned it into a 23 minute jog instead.

    09/25: 302.5 lbs (-0.5) … another new low! Feeling good.

    09/26: 301.4 lbs (-1.1) … another new low! Sub-300 is getting closer. Completed Couch to 5k Week 6 Day 3 this morning. Workout called for a 22 minute jog, but I was able to push it to 32 minutes. Very happy with that, considering the very last workout in the program, in three weeks, aims to have you run 30 minutes. I’ve already met that goal so I can work on pace a bit now.

    09/27: 302.1 lbs (+0.7) … a minor uptick, likely due to the fact that I had a heavier (delicious) dinner last night. Still within my budget. Nothing to worry about.

    09/28: 301.2 lbs (-0.9) … another new low! Played an hour session of Beat Saber both last night and this morning, then went out for a 7 mile bike ride this afternoon. .1 lb more loss until I hit my goal for this round. Hopefully I can make that happen for tomorrow.

    09/29: 299.1 lbs (-2.1) … Sub-300, finally! I’m very happy this morning. Mowed the lawn last night (push mower; I retired my riding mower this year to get more exercise), had my C25k run this morning (Couch to 5k Week 7 Day 1 complete!) and cleaned out the garage this afternoon. Hell of a way to finish out a challenge round!

    Challenge delta: -4.0 lbs
    Total Weight Loss: 87.5 lbs
