    Oct 15: 142.4 well, no excuses...I did have my wedding anniversary, but we ate lobster, red snapper and garlic shrimp. Then well, last night was thanksgiving. So, I'm not excusing or explaining...well I guess I'm explaining, but this is silly. There will always be celebrations in life, those little ups and downs will not make the difference over time....but my habits will make the difference, not the celebrations. The day in day out habits, the routines. I have wine every day, probably 2 to 3 glasses, so there it is. I eat very healthy, otherwise. I do not eat processed foods. I live in a small fishing village in Nicaragua so there are no fast food places. Not that I would go there. Anyways I am digressing. I eat a what I think is a well balanced diet with about 1200 cal per day. Carbs are not low, but reasonable less than 120, less than 100 most days. I eat loads of vegies, and I love meat:) I work out every day, 30 min stretch, 30-40 min yoga (beginner yoga) and then about 20-50 min pilates. Then I go clean my pool, and while I'm cleaning the sides of the pool, I do my squats..it's kinda funny to watch. Then I eat (either sauteed cabbage with left over vegies and meat; or my homemade soup, or cottage cheese and tomato, or eggs with vegies. Then I do my spanish, wander the 1/2 accre garden, read my book on the hammock. When I get too hot I jump into the pool and goof around for half hour (with a vodka and ensa), then it's time come up and watch the sunset with a glass of wine of course. Then make dinner...high protein, low carb. I dont add salt to anything, rarely buy canned vegies or frozen, I cook with what's fresh....I've lost about 12 lbs since June, but seem to be stuck now...maybe my body is just happy where it is. Or do I need to get real and shake it up...I suspect the obvious answer....ummm
    Oct 22: 139.2 Well, I took 2 days away from documenting everything and I think I needed to do that. I'm ready to recommit to this challenge.

    My name is Donna & I am from Michigan. I am 5’5” and 59 years young.


    Original Highest Weight: 253
    Original Starting Weight on MFP: 235


    October Start Weight: 194.2
    October Goal Weight: 188.2
    October End Weight: 188.0



    Oct 01:
    194.2 After travel weigh-in. Ugg. Feeling motivated today. I would like to securely hit the 180s in October!

    Oct 08:
    188.2 I’m feeling really great about hitting the 180’s. However, I’ve shown fluctuations this week due to travel, and more travel expected this week. That means lots of sitting & restaurant food. Trying to keep my mindset on my overall plan!

    Oct 15:
    189.9 The effects of the travel. It never looks good on me!

    Oct 22:
    192.8 Emergency travel yesterday for a family matter. Over on carbs & calories but this is ridiculous! I will be working this back down today with water & careful meal planning and a nice long walk inside the school (rain today).

    Oct 29:
    188.0 Much better than last week and back on track! I will be traveling tomorrow (8 hour round trip of driving) so I will make my last weigh in tomorrow morning before I leave. I am sure that the scale will be up on the 31st from all the car sitting & restaurant food. I don’t want to end the month with temporary water retention from the sodium found in most restaurant meals showing on the scale. That would signal a false ending weight this round, and more importantly (since I've done well this round) it would start me too high next round with a false high which would end on a bigger loss than what is true for November, so I'm keeping it real. I'll reweigh on November 1st which gives me 24 hours after travel to release fluid retention & travel bloat.
    Anyway, I am below goal this morning so I am a very happy camper!

    Oct 30:
    188.0 I made goal for the first time in a long time in this challenge. I am proud of my persistence. Nice round everyone. See you in November.
