    I'm in for round #123!

    Round #122 < 3.8lbs

    SW: 139lbs GW: 115lbs

    I've done this before, successfully; I know that it can be done. My challenge is ignoring a hurting body, and/or not getting up and moving-because *that* is more comfortable. I want ME back. Oh, and I also signed up for a virtual 5k today (to be completed in Sept) and I'm doing a *live* 5k in Dec. If I don't want to be thoroughly embarrassed, guess I'd better move my bum!

    Round 123

    Please join us! Starting on 08/15 JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, we will begin Round 123
    Anyone can join us at anytime during the round.

    Join us! If we stay mindful we can do this, you can do this.

    Welcome back past members, welcome new members, let's keep each other accountable for another 10 days!

    Here is what you do: Post your daily weight and add little comments along the way of how your day went. Post everyday to let us know how you're doing! Copy and paste the days in your response--tell us how much you lost and other non scale victories (NSV) you'd like to share.

    FOR NEWBIES - I find it easiest to copy the dates to a document or note in my device and edit it each morning. Then copy and paste to the message board. MFP will return you to the spot on the board where you left off on your previous visit which is nice to know if you like to scan all of the posts.

    JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS ~|~ Round 123 (round 55 for me ) I'm in for another round (as always!) – I need to just keep going! As always, thank you @GrandmaJackie such a champion particularly in these unprecedented & unsettled times, helping keep some stability in our lives, for setting up these challenges.

    Female age 62 5' 4” - Achieved goal weigh of 125lb in summer 2016 by losing 66lb and have gradually gained between 7 and 11 since then; I don't want to gain any more, but would like to get back to my goal weight – I'm working at it – it's a permanent way of life !

    Goal for this round – Bathroom being refurbished and is almost finished before they move on to the downstairs cloakroom. Miles are more of a challenge to achieve whilst the workmen are here, but I'm trying to get an hour or so in before they arrive and then some in the evening around commitments with MIL care. Stick with good habits: be mindful of what I eat & drink, keep walking, no binges, really want to keep the 10 days binge free again!

    08/14 133.4 - 8.62 miles walked yesterday, 749 calories in credit, all macros in green. I'm happy with that; 1.8 pounds lost from the end of last round – I was aiming for the 2 pounds from the last round but 1, but as last round I lost 0.2 that makes the 2 pound !! So inwards and upwards they say, here it should be onwards and downwards !! See you all in the next round. (DGS still doing well.)


    ​Day/Weight/Comment

    08/15 131.8 wow !! Got on the scales 3 times to check, a new low this year. 5.66 miles walked yesterday, 100 calories in credit, all macros in green.

    Ready to reach my ultimate goal weight, ten days at a time!

    SW 242
    GW 130

    Round 122 End- 160.2
    Round 123 Goal -2lbs

    8/15- 159 that’’s a nice drop, let’s see how much it bounces. I just realized I should take my measurements. In the past those numbers have gotten me through some really frustrating plateaus.

    🌾🎍🌵🌴🌳🏖🎡⛱🌳🌴🌵🎍🌾
    🏖🎡🎍🌳🍄 AUGUST🍄🌳🎍🎡⛱
    🌾🎍🌵🌴🌳🏖🎡⛱🌳🌴🌵🎍🌾

    Looking forward:
    I'm just too danged cussed to let this thing knock me back, and ruin all the effort I have put in to get here. I am stepping up my routine, and taking control. Sheltering in place means I can fully concentrate on getting in my exercise, and preparing healthy food.
    August focus: improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale
    Aims:
    2020 Focus:
    • Stabilise weight around 145
    • Strengthen strategies to reframe the tendency to use unhealthy snack food as a reward/treat.
    • Make sure I have prepared healthy snacks available
    • Cut down on eating between meals by keeping busy
    Never give up! Never give in!
    Recent Back Story:
    2018 goal: get back down to 160 ✅
    2019 goal: proceed down to 150 ✅ with 2 months to spare
    2020 goal: maintain below 150 dropping slowly down to 145 ✅ Working on it. Strength training has slowed progress, but that’s okay.
    That's a WIN in my book!
    2020
    Focus: maintenance! I might even manage to lose a bit more ever so slowly.

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    08/15: 286.6 / am going to fast until this evening as I have a heavy night out tonight. If the weather stays dry (doubtful right now) I'm going to my first karaoke in months outside. Im really looking forward to it. I've made the change from beer to white rum and diet coke so will save a lot of calories there, but expecting weight to jump up tomorrow due to water based on having a meal out.

    You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine. - John C. Maxwell
    My goal for 2020 is to get into ONEderland and making it stick. Changing my life.
    Plans:
    - Find workout routine that works (walk, bike, planks, yoga, swim, take advantage of retirement to be more active); target walking 100 miles in August
    - Drink more water (target min 80 oz daily; start with 1 glass before coffee)
    - Journal Food Daily (tracking with MFP since 12/28/2018; basically skipped June-Dec 2019; recommit 1/1/2020; skipped out April-July 2020)
    - Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)

    A little annoyed with the scale this morning. It’s on a solid, flat, surface. Batteries are maybe a month or so old. First weighed in at 222.4lbs. Wasn’t so sure about that, so re-weighed (minutes later) & got 224.0lbs. Immediately got back on for “best out of three” & got 225.0lbs. Finally that was replicable, so it’s what I went with, but what the heck??

    08/15 - 154.5 - Holy DOMS am I sore! I nearly fell out of bed and then I had to use to disabled bar things by my toilet to be able to get down to it without collapsing or crying from soreness. I suppose today is my rest day and I'll be doing some stretching. Didn't hit my step goal yesterday but my legs huuuurt and I gave myself some grace. Goal will be to hit my steps and move some of this soreness out of my system today.

    ROUND 123

    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: 13.7 lb
    17.5lb to go!

    R121: -3.1 lb✔️
    R122: -1 lb ✔️

    Round 123 SW: 182.5
    (on 8/14/20)

    08/15 – 183.0 – My husband and I had a day off from our food tracking and got take-out lunch. The rest of the day we weren’t very hungry, so half a pound doesn’t seem too bad.
