Just Give Me 10 Days - Round 23
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!
08/15 135.2lbs No exercise, but got plenty of steps in cleaning house!

I'm in! Thank you, @GrandmaJackie!
70 year old female...5'5" ...I used to be 5'7" but arthritis hit and I lost two inches, so now that two inches is squished around my waist like the billows of a big accordion... ...Oh, well. I'll just keep working on it.
We used to walk 5 miles a day. Recovered from back surgery then hip surgery!! Got back to walking then I sprained my ankle. UGH! hurt! I was down for 6 weeks with the ankle.
The Shelter in Place has everyone freaked. We need to remain calm and respectful of each other.

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!End of round 69 134.2 lbsKeep calm – we're all in this together! Wash hands, be kind and follow all latest Government guidelines for C-19 virus.

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.
08/16 131.8 – happy this stuck. 4.55 miles walked yesterday, took 2 year old DGS out for the day, hence reduced mileage. 57 calories & 4g carbs over.
08/17 132.2 – happy with that considering walking mileage is really down with one thing and another. Walked only 2.31 miles yesterday; in fact didn't actually get out to walk, that was cleaning and pottering in the house and garden !! 249 calories in credit, 13g carbs over.
DGS still doing well, on 4 hourly obs now instead of hourly, pain relief IV & catheter removed – all looking positive.
08/18 132.2 - 7.14 miles walked yesterday, 642 calories in credit, all other macros in green.
08/19 131.8 - 7.08 miles walked yesterday, 352 calories in credit, 29g carbs over.
08/20 131.8 – no walking yesterday, sat at MIL whilst boiler replaced & then continual rain throughout the day , hence 171 calories, 79g carbs & 1g fat over . Lucky to retain number !
08/21 131.2 – wow ! Another new low not just for this year but since June last year!! 12.14 miles walked yesterday, 318 calories in credit, 25g fat over.
08/22 131.2 – 7.86 miles walked yesterday, 443 calories in credit.
08/23 132 - Took 2.5 year old DGS out yesterday so mileage was restricted to his activity; following him round on his balance bike, helping him climb over logs, fallen trees etc. but precious time with him. His baby brother still doing well & expected to be discharged from hospital before the end of the week.
08/24 132.4 – 9.63 miles walked yesterday. 587 calories in credit & all macros in green. A little disappointed that the round end number has gone back up, but that's the way it is!! 0.8 pounds loss for the 10 days. Pleased how I've stayed sensible this round – no binging but not felt deprived, a good healthy lifestyle which is what I'm striving for. See you all in the next round.
KEEP SAFE EVERYONE . Keep calm – we're all in this together!

Goal: to lose 6.6 lbs/3 kg before September
Mini goal: lose 1.0 kg this round 👍
Last round lost 1.2 kg 😁
Total lost (since July 27th) 2.2kg6
Round 116 (1st round for me): +0.1
Round 117: -0.4
8/16 197.6 lots of salt Friday night and Saturday. Also extra desserts both nights too. Back to the grind
8/17 197.8 started the day strong with a good workout. Still had a lot of salt yesterday, and too many sweets, but weekdays are better for me to control anyway.
8/18 198.2 meh. Yesterday was so so. Above my calorie goal, extra sodium that's making me puffy. Need to drink more water today.
8/19 198.2 I drank a bit more water yesterday, which was great. I'm aimimg for 2 days of activity followed by 1 rest day, so yesterday was off. That said, I wish I got more steps in. Will be making today a great day!
8/20 197.9 good workout yesterday, got some additional activity in after dinner with the kids outside. Good day overall.
8/21 196.9 I'm satisfied to be almost back where I started. Exceeded my step goal, great workout. Ate fairly well too. Going to finish strong.
8/22 197.0 not bad for no official workout yesterday and a meal out. This weekend will be a mixed bag for sure, so im going to have to balance out what will be high sodim with lots of water and other low salt options.
8/23 197.3 ⬆️ lots of salt, just like I said. Feeling sore today, did some standing pilates which I might feel tomorrow! Good food choices all day.
8/24 197.1 I guess this is how round 123 ends with 0.5 lb loss. All in all, this is progress. I am starting to tweak more of my goals since I'm not aiming for fast results, just solid habits to last forever. See you all next round!6
5'4" and my start date to a healthier life was 160.2 lbs in October 2019.
Round 122: -1.8 lbs
Goal of round 123: -1.0 lb
My weight loss is slowing since I am within 10 lbs of ultimate goal weight of 120 lbs
08/15: 130.0 lbs -I have officially lost 30 lbs in 10 months! Dinner is calorie dense tonight, but this morning is my long run and my early eating is on par to keep me at calorie goal. Fingers crossed I only go up about .2 lbs ￼
08/16: 130.6 lbs - I knew I would be up a little from dinner. already pre-planned Mon-Wed to ensure I'm back on track. And I have a make-up run tonight.
08/17: 131.8 lbs - not sure why the fluctuate up is so high... just need to be better
08/18: 130.8 lbs - stayed on track with eating and had a really good strength workout and run
08/19: 130.4 lbs - slightly distracted lower strength workout and shorter run last night. Today is a longer run only. Slowly trending down.
08/20: 131.0 lbs - this one is a mystery since I ate just below calories. Body must be repairing with how sore my hamstrings are from Tues strength workout
08/21: 131.4 lbs - another mystery as I was 20 calories below last night. It was an upper strength workout though. Body must be retaining the water, TOM coming, or a mix of the two
08/22: 131.0 lbs - Nice to see the scale go down instead of up. Rain had other ideas for my run last night. I had a mini binge (2 handfuls of peanuts and dove chocolates) so I'm shocked happily surprised to see a .4 loss
08/23: 130.2 lbs - probably not going to lose the 1 lb this 10 day challenge
08/24: 131.0 lbs - fluctuation dance. Got the 1 lb goal - it was just gained instead of lost7

08/15 185.2 had a fun day with the kids and it shows a little. Made sure to choose a salad for lunch but had a couple of treats.
08/16 184.2 kind of surprised by this since we hosted some friends last night. Did shoulder strength workout
08/17 183.6 kindof surprised by this goal is to make it last and not jump back up
08/18 183.4 completed strength workout and was mostly good with eating. Passed on ice cream with the kids
08/19 185.2 no clue what happened here
08/20 184.6 coming back down, didn’t do great had an emotional day and that was reflected in my eating
08/21 184.8 did strength work out, did not fully track meals
08/22 184.8 holding steady here right now but my tracking has not been happening well
08/23 184.4 moving back in the right direction slowly
08/24 did arms strength work out and started to test my knee a tiny bit. Had a good day eating wise with the exception of ice cream with the fam. Glad I ended the round with zero gains even though I was hoping for at least a small loss.

🎯Mini Goal: get out & stay out of the 30s
10 weeks till 60th birthday 💖
5 months till next physical
08/15 - 235 - Ready for 2nd round of being back on track and checking in daily! Don’t worry about the little bump up on the scale.
08/16 - 234.5 - My son lost 80 lbs and his wife 50 since February. We had dinner at their house last night. Never thought I would eat cheesecake and take more pieces home on a diet. My first time trying Keto and finding it hard to mentally adjust monitoring low carbs instead of low fat.
08/17 - 234.4 - My weekly weigh in on Monday! Down 4 lbs from last week. Calories have been high over the weekend though I’m on target for the net carbs. Need to work on getting my total calorie intake lower.
08/18 - 233.4 - 2 weeks alcohol free which is a big accomplishment for me
08/19 - 233.4 - Ready for a new day and repeat yesterday's calorie and carb success! Need to figure out how/when to get more exercise today. I only made it 1 mile this morning and our dog got sick. Then had to take the car in for a recall. Soooooo No excuses! I just need to do it … heat or no heat! Went through the pantry and tossed everything that is not friendly LOL. We don't need that battle when trying to select meals or snacks!
08/20 - 233.5 - Goal today is to plan meals for the next week and shop for those groceries!
08/21 - 232.4 - If I slip up once and jump back into good habits the next hour instead of next day or waiting till Monday I won’t be out of control all weekend. Telling myself wouldn’t it be great to wake up Monday morning knowing I was in control all weekend! Note to Self: It’s worth it. Just do it!
08/22 - 232 - I took yesterday off from exercising and just relaxed. But I did talk DH into a 1 mile stroll with the dog after dinner … beautiful evening. Today I’ll be back to my morning 3 mile walk + biking on my recumbent inside.
08/23 - 231.5 Nice seeing a drop though it might be because I slept in. Walked 4.5 miles yesterday but then no bike because we went to help my sister with her internet. Then birthday dinner celebration for my SIL. Made a low carb low sugar blackberry cobbler … DH & I used Keto ice cream and served Bluebell to our SIL.
08/24 - 231.4 - Down 3.4 lbs this round! Making progress getting back to my 15 lbs lost that I reached in 2019 … I’ll be glad when I quit working on pounds I’ve gained and lost and start working on a new low!

Day - Weight - Comment
08/15 - 65.9kg - Slept in today, had a healthy breakfast.
08/16 - 66.1kg - Not a good weekend in terms of eating. Getting back on track tomorrow. I know I can do this, I just have to keep reminding myself at the toughest of times.
08/17 - 66.3kg - Lots of walking today.
08/18 - 66.6kg - Really struggling to keep up with the weight loss mindset recently. Not giving up though!
08/19 - 67.1kg - Did not snack today:))
08/20 - 66.8kg - Happy to see my weight move in the right direction again.
08/21 - 66.5kg - Drove out to the lake for the weekend, next weigh in on Monday. I’m planning to stay active with lots of hiking!
08/22 - vacation
08/23 - vacation
08/24 - 66.3kg - Didn’t meet my goal but I’m ready to do it next week!
I'm in! Good luck to all of us!
08/15 DNW. Camping this weekend. I haven't done a horrible job but I've definitely had a few things I wouldn't normally while trying to lose weight. It's ok, lake calories dont count 😁
08/16 198.8 That's ok! I knew it would go up a little, I'm just happy I'm still in Onederland. Back at it today. Happy sunday!
08/17 197.8 Down a little I got a compliment yesterday about losing weight. I'm going to use that as fuel to keep going! Happy Monday, hope you all have a great week!
08/18 196.6 Today is my sons birthday! We always let them pick what they would like for dinner on their birthdays and he chose my favorite barbeque restaurant. I plan to make good choices, but it's going to be hard!
08/19 196.2 I was able to stay under my calorie goal yesterday. I didn't get in enough water so my goal today is make sure I do. I have a long drive this morning, so I see many pit stops in my future 😄 Happy hump day!
08/20 196.2 Did good on water yesterday. Hope you all have a great day!
08/21 195.8 I feel like I should probably start exercising soon. I was waiting because I have knee and back problems and was hoping that if I got some weight off it would help ease the pain a little. I'm almost down 20 lbs and still in pain so now I'm hoping that exercise will help. I'm not sure. I'll just start slow. Slow and steady wins the race, right?!
08/22 196.8 T.O.M showed up this morning. Totally unexpected too. I'm hoping that the 1 pound jump is just from that and it'll be gone as quick as it showed up! Have a great weekend!
08/23 196.6 I didnt do great yesterday on water intake and my food was packed full of carbs all day. We were on the run all day and most of my food was fast food. I was over on calories by 70. I'm not beating myself up though, just going to make better choices today 🤷♀️
08/24 195.6 My lowest weight during the challenge! I didnt make my goal weight for this round but that's ok. T.O.M may have messed it up a little. I'm still happy with my progress and not letting the little things get to me. Good luck un the next round!
Total loss for round 123: 2.4 lbs7

08/22 173.0lbs...really happy with this
I've no idea why i put a pound back on again. I walked 10,000 steps on Saturday, though hardly any yesterday.
I kept within my calories without eating any exercise calories at all.
But my scales show a lower body fat percentage compared to Saturday so that's a good sign.
I hope to do better on the next round as I'd like to be losing a pound a week.

08/24 - 153.9 - Surprised and very very happy. I was thinking I wouldn't meet goal but I didn't realize I'd have this big of a drop and hit so close to goal. Didn't get a ton of movement but got outside and chased kids around a bit with Fam. Also didn't have a ton to eat, skipped dinner due to being so full from a real late lunch (Linner?) and breakfast was small, but I was quite satiated. Must've been the water keeping me feeling full and happy.
Previous Day's Comments08/15 - 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.
08/16 - I really have no idea where this came from. I had a very small breakfast, a few bites of a charcuterie board fam threw together, and 2 small ribs with some cooked spinach. And a crunch bar for lunch because it was that or nothing and I was getting nauseous. Probably not enough water but couldn't keep up - working outside in a heat advisory. Still drank a lot more water than I normally would if I were inside during the day. DOMS are still around pretty bad so working on that today again.
08/16 - Working my way down now. Went swimming to beat the heat yesterday and tried to actually do something to raise my heart rate a little while I was in the pool. Not a huge place, especially with the kids splashing around and having fun, but underwater swimming helped me with that a bit. Had to go get bloodwork and urine test for my appt on Wednesday with the VA and boy am I hungry now. Going to try a yoga workout later today once I get some food and more water in me to make up for it. Not a lot of blood, but enough I don't want to overdo it. Goal is to meet step goal again. Last few days, I've barely made it to my 7225 goal but today I'm going for 8000 steps. Legs still quite sore from leg day on Friday and I need to get that worked out anyway, a nice walk should help.
08/17 - I don't know... I really don't know. I wasn't as active yesterday because work got really crazy. Food wasn't terrible -- I had a grilled chicken caesar salad for lunch and a small bit of leftovers for dinner. Could've drank more water but even that wasn't horrible. I'm still a little sore but nothing like the previous days so that's dropping off. Whyyyyy, body, are you torturing me? Guess that's the motivation I really need to go work out this morning, even though I was debating not doing it because I'm tired. Wake up call, much?
08/18 - So confused with my body... Not sure where this came from. I figured after dinner (I made my favorite meal from home) I had gained or at least maintained my higher weight. So confused. Ran with the pup yesterday morning (with walking warmup, cooldown, and a short break we went 0.71mi) then I took her for a nice walk after dinner to reach my step goal. Today I think Fam is doing arms this morning so I'm going to join her if I can hurry up and wake up enough to function.
08/19 - Not holding my breath on that one. Fasted until about 130 and ate out in San Antonio (had to drive fam there to pick up jeep parts so she can be mobile. Dinner may not be much, if anything at all, because of how filling the food was and how late lunch was. No workout today due to an early start getting to San A in time for a WebEx meeting (not ideal to have a video call while being tossed around on construction roads haha!) Definitely in need of water the rest of the day and hopefully it'll keep me satiated enough through dinner so I don't overdo it if I do end up eating.
08/21 - I did not expect that, especially feeling as heavy as I do right now. I didn't drink anything but water from the time of posting until I went to bed. I did have a tiny slice of pizza (it took 2 of my normal bite sizes to finish it off) I wasn't hungry for much else, honestly. Doing yoga at about 9 with Fam so I may go for a nice walk around the neighborhood after I replenish my lifeblood (drink my coffee) before walking over to hers. As long as everyone's work stays calm enough, we all plan to (safely) walk mainstreet before too many tourists arrive for the weekend.
08/22 - DNP
08/23 - It is okie-dokie, I knew that was coming. Yesterday was a weird day for me -- forgot to weigh, ignored my water bottle even though I was thirsty for some reason. I think I got so sick of the taste of plain water I couldn't bring myself to it but I'm back to drinking it this am. Was outside and sweating like crazy with no source of water in the afternoon and couldn't catch up once home. Today should be calm and I'll be focusing on water intake and light meals. Hopefully it'll drop back down tomorrow if I'm diligent. I might try for a walk once my fitbit is charged and no plans come up.
F 37 158cm (5'2)
SW 136.6kg (Jan 2020)
GW (24 Aug) 129.5kg
Birthday dinner, but enjoyed a walk in the evening.
Rediscovered podcasts, which I love walking and swimming to. Will go for a walk once the kids are in bed.
No walk today, just trying to catch up on the housework instead. I found individual portions of brie, which really helps avoid going overboard on it.
Started metformin today. Feeling really down on myself, but I know that this is what I need to do to deal with this.
My weekly trip into the Uni today. It is nice to go out and see other people, even if we have to stay distanced. It is built on a hill, so I also did eleventy billion steps.
20/8 129.4kg <-- Woo, mini goals!
Picked up a bad cough, so a quiet day today. Hopefully I can sleep okay tonight.
I put my favourite pasta sauce on my chicken for dinner. A easier way to reduce carbs and increase protein without feeling like I am missing out.
Still sick, but my COVID test came back negative. Not really hungry, so nowhere near my calorie budget. Got a bunch of sugar free drops to help me drink more water. Just trying to rest and keep hydrated.
Another quiet day. I know this big a drop is mainly due to not eating much yesterday, so expect to be a bit higher tomorrow.
Not as much of an increase as I expected, so I'm very happy with this one. This group has been really motivating, so I'm definitely joining the next one.

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.
08/16 – 183.0 – Staying stable. It looks like 183 is my current weight “speed bump.” I just need to be diligent to be able to make it over the speed bump and back down.
08/17 – 182.7 – Trying to be gentler on myself and make sure I’m not treating this as a race to the finish line. Consistent, reasonable effort is all that in needed.
08/18 – 181.9 – I have a huge work project keeping me at my desk more this week, so there is less exercise, but I’m still be diligent about logging my food.
08/19 - 181.1 – Looks like a gentler approach is helping this week. Just letting my body guide the way
08/20 – 181.5 – A little bump, but I’m still feeling really positive about this Round!
08/21 -182.0 – And here the roller coaster goes again. I’m feeling a little bloated, so probably water retention.
08/22 – 182.1 – Well, this is discouraging. Not sure what’s going here, but I’ll keep hanging in there.
08/23 – 181.9 – Just trying to be a little tighter on my calorie window and my logging to try to push under 182 for good
08/24 – 182.3 – Really? Seriously? Only .2 lbs lost in 10 days? Eating at a deficit the entire time? How discouraging. I feel like when I am super-productive in one area of my life (this week I got SO much done for work), then other areas on my life seem to suffer. I need to get back on the ball if I am going to keep making progress toward my goal.

08/16 218.6 Humph!! Patience is a virtue right? And virtues are like muscles, you gotta use them or loose them, so today's exercise is patience and perseverance.
08/19 216.8Best part of yesterday was that I did not hit exhaustion until the evening!! So nice not to feel like a zombie for half the day.
08/21 216.4 really enjoying not getting the mid afternoon crash!
08/22 216.6 sleep deprived day yesterday - very little movement. Today will be better. Have already done my workout.
