Just Give Me 10 Days ~ Round 121
58 y.o. female 5' 7"
HW: 186 UGW: 150
R119 - Lost 2.9# -
R120 - Lost 1.9# - 171.3
R121 - 169.9 CARRY-OVER GOAL
Need to dip my toe into the 160's!
7/26: 171 nice round number to start R121
7/27: 170.1 Glimpse of the "0" back from last round. Lots of gym activities for me over the weekend. A bit worried going into the week. The gym is not as ready of an option with my work/sleep routine; and mother-nature is dishing out extreme heat which doesn't work out well for me walking outside during my lunch time. Tune in tomorrow to see how I resolve this activity quandary!
7/28: 169.8 Blessed with a cooling rain so a nice evening for my walk. Can't credit the BIG 3 oz loss solely to that. All I can say is don't mistakenly take a magnesium supplement instead of your crazy pill on an empty stomach. In a desperate attempt to keep what is likely not a fat loss, I just got back from a fasted hour walk in the low 80's sunshine. Plan to take the pup on a shorter one when it cools off this evening--gotta stay on her good side.;)
7/29: 170.0 Feels like a solid pound lost since the beginning of the round. YAY! I feel more "centered" once I inexplicably nudge up a couple ounces after following all my rules for several days in a row. Something comforting about knowing that lower number lives because it's been achieved. Maybe those ounces are in transformation, too? Fat-to-Water-to-Muscle-to burn Fat-to-Water to....? So I made that last part up--I don't know if that is how the body burns or not, but it feels like how my "extra" is rolling right now. (pun intended):*
7/30: 171.1 Speaking of inexplicable...I noticed many of us bumped up overnight, more than a few ozs in some cases, despite doing everything right. (
on solidly landing in the 160's!) Oddly enough, my mirror and my scale are not synced. I look so much healthier than I did last round and even yesterday when I was over a pound lighter--lol! So I share this to say that our daily victories are where we find them, scales be damned! Keep pushing 10-day Fit Fam!
7/31: 171.2 Looking forward to gym day and date night with the hubs. He is such a lucky man!;)
8/3:172.1 Skipped a couple days of sharing my weight increase. Yes, there was cake involved. Not going to make it to the scale goal in short of 24 hours but continue to see positive physical changes that also may help to explain the weight increase. Am I going "less fluff; more buff"?
8/4: 171.9 Weird round. I may be allergic to the 160's. As soon as I dipped my toe into that range, I bounced up fast! Still eating right, logging and exercising so I know
someday my whoosh will come
. (I already have my prince!) Hope to see you all in R122.

07/27 209.8 13394 steps yesterday 1260 calories in beach and sun day with my family. Exhausted today and very, very hot outside today. Lunch walk will be in the halls.

07/30 208 Yesterday 16298 steps and 1740 calories. A little high for calories, but very active afternoon. Walked my little ones to the park and back one mile there and one mile. Not high intensity although we do some running but we also stop to look at every beautiful flower!!! My daughter “It’s so beautiful, I love it!” Steak for dinner and half a slice of fruit tart at work. Very good.
07/31 208.2 Yesterday 13744 steps and 1526 calories very active, happy not stressing about slight uptick. My office is having pizza today but I am having a turkey cutlet salad. Been up since 330 this morning so today should be interesting…
08/01 207.5 13000 yesterday good on calories

I don't eat whipped cream easy to skip it and eat the fruit only. Bee sting came with cake causing me to flash my neighbors friends as I try to remove the bee from my upper thigh. It was quite a show. Lol
08/04 207.1 Yesterday slow cooked beef with asparagus for dinner, Omelet with avocado toast for breakfast, snap peas and wasabi and soy almonds for lunch.1602 calories 13885 lunch walk and aerobics in afternoon.

Not sure how, but this is what popped up and made it really close to goal. This partial round was really to see where I'm hovering, and less to lose despite setting a goal (which really was wishful thinking of dropping water weight since I've been horribly dehydrated). I'll take that as a win. Not sure if its a mental thing or what. I was so used to being brutally honest posting here that I built a habit of being cognizant of my habits. I'd have to admit to this community my shortcomings (which are plenty but some... well...) and it was easier for me to walk away rather than admit I was being an uncontrollable glutton. Not consciously doing that, but maybe, just maybe, being back to posting is causing it to happen subconsciously. Hmmm...
Previous Day's Comments
Well, first time weighing at all since May... Not too bad, I'll say. I haven't done anything except the occasional yoga, walk, and once a hill run with the middle kid. She's in cross country so she likes to try to kill me on runs haha Absolutely no food tracking done, no attempt at portion control, nothing! I'm actually quite surprised about my weight, especially as I've been super bloated and heavy feeling lately, I figured I'd creeped back up in to the 160s. Apparently this is a stuck weight and I'm glad for it. Now time to move my stuck weight down.
Not surprised, had a big day out yesterday goofing off and trying to enjoy time with the kids during their last full weekend together. I'm not as bloated as normal, but I am a bit dehydrated so I'm assuming that's the uptick. Going to focus on water today as much as I can. Update on my Godson -- he's out of the hospital and seems almost normal. Obviously a little slow and groggy from 5 days in the hospital getting poked and prodded (he's 2 so easy to irritate with that) but his attitude is definitely come back to shine. His appointment concerning transplant has been postponed as the family wants both parents there during the process (and to calm the little man -- they learned during this trip if only 1 parent is there at a time, he is uncontrollable but once they got approval for both to stay, he was much better and his health turned around for the better almost immediately) and to make decisions as a team regarding their son's future. Hopefully things will calm down on the COVID front as they can't postpone too much longer but I also understand the concerns of having only 1 parent at a time.
We did a Linner yesterday and it was the only meal I had (hello unplanned IF day). Ended up hungry right before bed and was scared to get nauseous so I had a quick pizza pocket snack. Glad I ended up down despite that. Hoping the girl gets up to go for a run with Fam so I can maybe join in for at least a walk. I don't feel super bloated, but my belly is sticking straight out instead of a sag so I know there's some bloat there. Had water but not enough yesterday so pushing water as I type to get a headstart on my day and hoping it'll alleviate some of that bloat look. Since my late night snack last night, I'm pushing breakfast out and trying to fast a bit longer despite being peckish right now (been eating a small half breakfast around this time and then eating another small half breakfast when BF gets up and moving to make something (or I realize he's not and I start to feel pretty hungry again). I need to get back into IF but I've been waking up super hungry since spring. Not sure if its the heat, the change in pace of meals in TX (mainly routine change), or if I somehow trained my body to be hungry first thing in the morning somehow (which NEVER was the case before in my life). Guess I have some learning to do with my body again

7/26 - 181.2
It’s a lovely morning but heating up fast. Birthday cake on tap for DH, but I’m planning the rest of my day to compensate, and will be spreading soil in my new garden bed, so that should burn a few calories. I’m determined to lower my calorie average by at least 100 this round, and to up my exercise. Have a gorgeous Sunday, all. Be safe & healthy. 🌸❤️🌼🥗🌻
7/27 - 181.8
Oooh, the cake was good. And lasagna for DH’s birthday dinner. Salad today, baby! I did do a couple hours worth of hard labor in the garden — I’m turning the lawn at one side of the house into flowers, so schlepped a lot of 40-lb bands of soil around. More today, then compost. Better than the gym!
7/28 - 182.8
Cake + no walk due to lightning + a bit of munching last night = bloat + weight gain. Back with the program today. I want to get back to running, so am thinking of doing a round of C25K starting tomorrow. Planning a nice walk this evening. I’m off to buy more soil — I have about half the lawn covered for my side-yard garden. Yesterday was horrible hot, but it’s lovely today, so I need dirt! These days, I dream in flowers.
7/29 - 181.8
I almost finished laying the new garden bed yesterday — today’s the day! I’ll do that this morning (12 more 40-lb bags of soil will be my weight training) and then I’m off for a long walk along the river this afternoon. Now to eat well at meals and slay the snack monster....
7/30 - 182.8
Aaack. But I did eat salty yesterday and had an adult beverage last night, which I rarely do, but I finished laying out my new garden space (below). Now I wait for the paper under the soil to decompose, and in the spring I’ll plant a wide variety of flowers for birds, bees, butterflies, moths, and me! That’s 2,240 pounds of soil there!
7/31 - 181.8
Almost forgot to check in!
8/1 - 182
DH wanted Thai yesterday, so I had just 2 summer rolls with shrimp and peanut sauce. Delish! I did eat a bunch of popcorn last night and feel a bit bloated — still wrestling with the evening snack monster. It’s a new month so I am going to try for one behavioral change — breaking the evening snack habit is my goal for this month. I did go for a lovely 5-mile walk yesterday, and worked in the garden. All good. Have a lovely weekend, all!
8/2 - 181.8
Holy cow, where has this round gone? And why am I still not doing what I need to do? More to the point, why am I still doing what I don’t need to do? To be honest, I don’t even mind my weight right now, especially since it’s been with a 4-lb range for 6 months (so I’m no longer gaining), but most of my clothes are for smaller me and I don’t want to buy clothes! I’m wondering once again whether obsessing constantly about calories, macros, minutes, miles is counter-productive for me at the moment. I mean, I record everything I eat, so it’s not as if I’m unaware of what and how much, but it’s not working for me like it did before. Maybe I should stop thinking in terms of re-losing 50 pounds and shift to a 10 or 20 pound goal. Your thoughts/experience about this sort of thing appreciated!
8/3 - 182
Gorgeous day here! I have a full morning of garden work planned, removing a few things, moving a few, planning and plotting.... One thing about working in the garden — I can’t snack! 🌻🌿🌸🌱🌼 I wish you all a lovely day!
8/4 - 182
First, I hope everyone in Isaias’s path is safe. 🌂
And then there’s my lack of progress.... Since my calorie average for the round is higher than my TDEE, I can’t pretend to be surprised. Even with exercise (obviously not enough), I need to eat fewer calories (also obviously). Next round? I’ll try.

I’m a 5’ 8”, 45 yo Mom of 2 young ones. The lockdown had me squeaking toward 200, so I knew I had to start taking better care of myself!
Original SW: 196.2 lb (6/11/20)
GOAL Weight: 165 lb
Total weight loss to date: 12.7 lb
1st Round for me!! Goal for this round is just to make some downward progress.
Round 121 SW: 186.6
This is a glorious day as I have been recently struggling with the 187 speedbump. I’ve now had TWO days under 187 and I think it’s going to stick!
– Not surprising, because I had some rice with a little soy sauce with dinner last night and that always makes me retain a little water.
– I guess that exciting “dip” was just a tease. That’s okay. It is cardio day on the stationary bike so hopefully I’ll get this moving back in the other direction.
7/29 – 186.3 – Holding steady here, not bad. I’m really not feeling well today so I’m just going to try to take it easy.
– There we go! Yesterday I got in my steps, logged my food and drank tea as I tried to rest a bit.
- Had “dinner night” with my husband. It was the first take-out we’d had in 4 weeks. It was delicious – no regrets.
– Nice recovery after a take-out dinner. Now it’s time to work on August goals!
- That was unexpected, but I’ll take it! I’ve been doing my scheduled cardio and being really careful about logging foods after the take-out day and it seems to have worked.
- Wow, even more unexpected. I wasn’t feeling well yesterday, so I was essentially coach bound all day. I did close my diary “under” yesterday – my only healthy accomplishment.
– It has been 10 days already! Time flew! I am also pretty stunned by this weight decrease, because in July I struggled with getting under 187 for weeks. I guess that’s proof to just keep going and be patient!
3.1 lbs lost this Round!

I love learning about food and everything about it; from the way it acts in the body to learning to cook a new recipe. I went to school for nutrition (got my bachelor's) but I didn’t become an RD because it didn’t feel like the path for me. I guess I wanted to keep it as more of an interest instead of a career. I then went into public health to further my education and I currently help medically complex patients by connecting them with community resources to improve their health and life. I enjoy helping family and friends when they ask for advice related to food and nutrition. Plus, it helps me brush up on what I spent so much time learning!
I’m here because when I’m not paying attention to what I eat, I start to gain and feel uncomfortable in my body. For me that results in frustration and a lot of other emotions. It has also increased my cholesterol in the past (It’s good now as far as I know thanks to diet and exercise). I have a family history of diabetes, heart disease, and all that fun stuff. So, I want to prevent that for myself by getting a hold of my food habits now.
I’m always open to conversation about food and nutrition, so feel free to reach out to me!
Previous days’ entries
07/26 117.2 Starting at the same weight I ended in round 119 thanks to eating a whole lot of salt on Friday after our hike. As semblances of normal life start creeping back in like takeout food, I find it harder to resist. Especially when it’s right in my face (Like my in-laws ordering takeout and wanting us to eat upstairs with them). I have a hard time saying no to those things because I enjoy them. One positive is that I feel like I did well last week and made a huge volume of summer squash to go with a minimal amount of Chinese food I ended up eating (maybe 1 cup worth of General Tso’s chicken, one chicken finger, and ½ cup pork fried rice, a fried dough ball, then a mountain of sautéed zucchini/summer squash). That method worked pretty well, I felt satisfied afterwards, but it took a while to feel full. I wanted to eat more but resisted.
I know I said going into this it would be tough because the lower you go the harder it is to get to the goal number at my height. I just need to remind myself of that and keep on chugging because I love the changes I have seen and feel very comfortable in my own skin. I just don’t want to feel uncomfortable again…which can happen if takeout becomes a habit.
So cheers to a new round with a new focus and challenges of not letting takeout food get in the way of my success.
07/27 117.2 Solid start to the day with a good soccer workout before the 100 degree plus humidity weather rolls in. I made a new batch of granola yesterday and added some crushed up brown rice cakes to it to add some bulk without a lot of calories. I’m excited to try it with my fruit and yogurt for breakfast.
It’s CSA pick up today and I got an email saying there will be peaches in it, so I’m very excited to try those! I love in season and local peaches! They are so so yummyyyyy! We’ll also be getting kohlrabi which will be fun to cook with! I love kohlrabi just sliced and munched on raw. So much yummy produce is really going to start rolling in and I’m so excited about it!
I’m also feeling refreshed after my mini vacation last week of having Wednesday to Friday off work.
07/28 118.0 Salt is not my friend. Had Thai food last night and wasn’t over on anything numbers wise. Done with takeout for a while. My husband really wanted it last night and I caved because it sounded way too good as I was really hungry at the time. Bleck,now I pay. Hoping the water weight doesn’t stick around because it doesn’t feel good being all swollen. I felt it in my fingers and face this morning snd hoping it fades.
Besides that, we went for a really nice walk this morning at around 5ish miles and it included black berry picking! So that was fun coming home with about a pint of wild black berries to accompany our CSA blueberries, apples and peaches in the fridge. I have healthy food all planned out for today and planning to stick to it.
07/29 119.2 Water weight is crazy right now. Besides that, I had a really good soccer workout this morning. I also switched up my breakfast routine today because I had leftover kielbasa to finish up. So I browned the kielbasa (4 oz) slices in a pan and then threw in an egg. Then on the side, I had a slice of whole wheat raisin toast (Angelic Bakehouse brand) topped with ½ tbs peanut butter along with some blueberries and blackberries. It was a pretty balanced breakfast and it’ll be interesting to see how well it keeps me satisfied.
07/30 117.0 Finally got the whoosh of water weight released. I can feel it too! My fingers don’t feel swollen which is nice 😊. We went for a really nice walk this morning. I think it clocked in at about 6.5ish miles. I think I’ll be frying an egg to go with my yogurt and fruit this morning. Then for a snack I’ll have some fresh kohlrabi and cucumbers. I’ll probably have a couple pieces of dried fruit with it too for a sweet treat. I’m looking forward to possibly having a taco salad for dinner tonight! Have a good day!
07/31 116.4 More whoosh of water weight 😊. Finally back to baseline after over a week of highs. We did a really good soccer workout this morning. I have my meals all planned for the day. For breakfast I’m having leftover chili I made last night topped with an egg. Then I’ll have fruit, yogurt and granola on the side. Snack will be some more kohlrabi and cucumber sprinkled with chili lime seasoning. Then, for dinner I think I want to make chicken thighs, purple potatoes, and zucchini ribbons with a touch of alfredo sauce for dinner tonight.
08/01 115.6 Whelp there’s a number I don’t remember seeing, even in high school. Maybe middleschool, so when I was an awkward 13/14 year old with a completely different shape to me. This is exciting and I’m really happy with it 😊. Let’s hope it sticks! In the meantime I will celebrate the victory with some online shopping to treat myself.
I have my typical breakfast planned today in addition I’ll be having some leftover chili on the side with an egg on top. Not sure if I’ll be hungry after such a big breakfast. Then we’ll be having homemade pasta & meatballs for dinner tonight. I think I’ going to make some zucchini ribbons to add some veg to the dish as well. I’ll probably have a cucumber salad to go with it too.
NSV: I have officially been logging for 110 days in MFP 😊.
08/02 115.6 Nice to see it stick. We had Chipotle door dash for lunch today and I calculated my bowl on their website and realized after the fact that the bowl I ordered had almost 3,000 mg of sodium in it. (Ingredients: barbacoa, brown rice, black beans, fajita veg, guac, mild and hot salsa, and romaine lettuce.) So, I’m sure I’ll have some water fluctuations into tomorrow. It also clocked in at 1,000 calories. After logging all of that, it makes me realize how I got up to the weight I was at. We were eating a lot of Chipotle and take out pre-pandemic, which definitely adds up over time into real poundage. After having for the first time in a while… I wonder why I ate it so much before because I wasn’t that impressed with it today. I think I’d rather splurge on Thai food for a sodium bomb vs Chipotle. I plan on having a light dinner tonight like salad and then some fruit and yogurt. I really hope the sodium doesn’t bother me too much.
08/03 114.8 We did a killer soccer workout this morning and I feel great afterwards! I’m glad the Chipotle sodium bomb didn’t stick. I wonder if it’s from the magnesium I’ve been taking each evening to help with sleep and a few other things I had read about. Other than that, I haven’t really changed anything with my routine. I’ll happily take it though 😊. CSA pick up today and I’m so excited because they said we’ll be getting tomatoes and peppers! I haven’t had fresh peppers yet from them and it’s been a few weeks since we’ve gotten tomatoes. Breakfast and lunch will be typical meals for me and dinner will be jerk roasted chicken thighs with a ton of roasted veggies (summer squash, eggplant, and green beans) to use up what we didn’t eat from our csa last week.
08/04 114.8 Last day of the round and feeling like it was a success. 😊 Our CSA was amazing last night and shocked that we got 2 cantaloupes! I wasn’t expecting that and got so excited when I saw them grab them to put in the trunk! I can’t wait to have some with my breakfast this morning!! Anyways, we went for a really nice walk this morning and picked some more wild blackberries along the way.
Today we have our meat csa pick up and are planning to stop for ice cream afterwards because my sister in law has been craving soft serve frozen yogurt for well over a week now. So, I’ve decided to indulge too!
This round was crazy and really showed me how much my weight can fluctuate. At one point it went up 2 or 3 pounds over two days. Then it whooshed down and stayed there after a couple rounds of not losing. Feeling grateful today about it all. Looking forward to the next round!
Total weight loss for this round: 117.2 -> 114.8 2.4lbs lost total.

Your/our weight fluctuates daily because of hormones. I used to have a video in my spoiler which explained this AND why weighing only once a week is not an accurate representation for women. Don’t stress over the fluctuations, learn the pattern of your body. 😘

Wednesday 07/29 - 145.6 - New low. Went back to bed this morning, so got this great number either from being more rested or having 2 more hours before weighing to sleep off a few calories.

Any round with a loss is a good round. Any round where you learn something is a good round. Any round we “hang in there” is a good round.

We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19
What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.
This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

Thank you all for sharing your daily updates, stumbles, and notes of encouragement! It was a great experience being in this challenge with all of you and I look forward to another round in the future. Success to all!

End of round 119: 224.6
End of round 120: 220.2
7/26: 220.6 Yesterday’s number was a big drop, I said then that a lot of it was probably water. Just balancing out today.
7/27: 221.4 My scale was acting weird last night (display light on and flickering when it hadn’t been touched since that morning) and I had to replace the battery this morning, so I can totally blame this bump on that, right? In all seriousness, I’m still lower than three days ago...still balancing out that big one-day drop, I guess. Follow the trend, not the fluctuations. It’s why I post the chart.
7/28: 222.6 Right...there’s no “just balancing out the fluctuations” or “follow the trend” here. I had a mini fast food binge yesterday, and I gained. Time to get back on track.
7/29: 222.4 Was hoping for a bigger drop, but at least it’s in the right direction at last!
7/30: 220.4 There it is.
7/31: 220.2 Back to where I started the round, except now the trendline is catching up to the low number on the scale. The scale flirted with numbers in the 219 range, but settled here. Soon enough...
8/1: 220.4 Didn’t post yesterday, but I did weigh in, so here it is.
8/2: 220.2 Seriously flirting with the idea of getting below 220 without actually getting there. It’ll happen soon enough, whenever the next big drop happens, and then I’ll be waiting impatiently for the next one! Big exercise day yesterday, met a goal I’d been working toward, so maybe I’m holding onto some water for recovery today. Would be nice to drop a bit in the next two days so I can end the round lower than I started, though.
8/3: 221.0 🤷🏻♀️ I don’t even know. Maybe it’s salt today? Just keep going, trust the process...but if I don’t see a drop tomorrow, I may have to take a break from daily weigh-ins for the next round.
8/4: 219.8 I’ll take it. The numbers have been frustrating this round, but 0.4 down overall isn’t nothing. Looking at the trend line instead of the scale numbers, I actually have lost a pound and a half of true weight even if the scale isn’t showing it since I started on a low outlier. And I’ve accomplished some significant things in my exercise journey over the last few days, so I’ll focus on that and keep going.
