Round 131

Please join us! Starting on 11/03 JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, we will begin Round 131
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.



Goals
- check in at least every other day
- Participate
- Low carb

    Just Give Me 10 Days is the first “challenge” that has helped me gain some freedom over the scale. Most days my weight doesn’t shape my mood- so far. And so I am deeply grateful for this and for you all.

    My main goal is not to be elated or devastated by the scale. It has been a very long, emotionally painful journey with my weight, all of my life. I want so badly to escape my food addiction. I never want to be 338lbs. again but I know it could very well happen. I don’t want to be 115lbs. again because at that weight I was losing my hair and I was sick all of the time and exercising four hours a day, eating less than 800 calories. I just want moderation!

    This daily weigh-in has been a good discipline. Hard to get too excited or upset over the scale when one sees how much fluctuation happens regardless of my caloric intake and exercise.

    I limit myself to a manageable 3.5 mile run each day, a 20 min morning workout and a 10 minute bedtime workout. And I eat 1,200 6 days a week and 3,600 one day a week. (My high-protein day). No added sugar. No meat.

    STARTING WEIGHT: 338lbs on January 1, 2014
    ROUND 131 STARTING WEIGHT ON 11/3: TBD
    ROUND GOAL WEIGHT: TBD
    ULTIMATE GOAL WEIGHT: 122-125lbs.

    Previous Rounds
    Round 128: 138-139lbs. (+1)
    Round 129: 139-134lbs. (-5)
    Round 130: TBD

    Hi, I’d like to join round 131 please.

    I am seeking to maintain (or drop a small amount) and find that I need the discipline of daily weighing to stay on track. I use Happy Scale to record my weight and will post actual weight in kg and the trend direction.

    Round 130 (1st for me) SW 57.2. EW 56.5. Loss = 0.7 kg

    Round 132 SW 56.5kg. GW 56 kg

I never want to be 338lbs. again but I know it could very well happen. I don’t want to be 115lbs. again because at that weight I was losing my hair and I was sick all of the time and exercising four hours a day, eating less than 800 calories. I just want moderation!

    This daily weigh-in has been a good discipline. Hard to get too excited or upset over the scale when one sees how much fluctuation happens regardless of my caloric intake and exercise.

    I limit myself to a manageable 3.5 mile run each day, a 20 min morning workout and a 10 minute bedtime workout. And I eat 1,200 6 days a week and 3,600 one day a week. (My high-protein day). No added sugar. No meat.

    STARTING WEIGHT: 338lbs on January 1, 2014
    ROUND 131 STARTING WEIGHT ON 11/3: TBD
    ROUND GOAL WEIGHT: TBD
    ULTIMATE GOAL WEIGHT: 122-125lbs.

    I'm in. Supportive people and I'm ending up really learning from my own comments. Interesting to see where my head is/was at. I have been printing out a hard copy for a binder at the end of each round. Thanks @GrandmaJackie for setting up and maintaining this group!

    Next overall goal is to get under 140. I would like to get that done before Thanksgiving and hold through Thanksgiving. For this round, I am going to focus on getting to 141.

    Going to continue with daily tracking, staying under goal calories, and minimum of 20 min formal exercise/day (all from UAC challenge). I am also trying to do 90 minutes of planks, and 24 hours of formal exercise this November (24 hour and 60 minute plank challenges).

    Previous goals: get under 150; get under 145 for my birthday; get to pre-COVID 142.4

    I lost 16lbs with you all April-October 2020 and I want to keep it off!
    Maintenance goal: 135-140

    This round, I need to practice maintaining by: ✅eating really whole, fresh foods and
    ✅getting some activity every day.
    My challenges are:
    ◾the time change (work hours shift to an hour earlier for the winter) and
    ◾managing cravings and goals throughout TOM

    I think it would also feel less strict if I lost another pound or two and hovered closer to the middle of my range instead of popping over it so many days. Last round was over range 8 days, within range 2 days.
