    weekly weigh-in 2021 -- every friday

    Name: Joan
    5'11"
    69 yrs old

    SW: 195
    1st goal: 185
    2nd goal: 180
    Ultimate goal: 170-175

    Word for the year 2021: Consistency

    My weight history:
    SW Year 2017: 217
    SW Year 2018: 195.5
    SW Year 2019 : 206 -- met my goal weight of 178 on December, 2019

    SW Year 2021:195

    Goals for 2021:
    These are the healthy habits I would like to do in 2021:
    1. Lose 25 pounds to get to my ultimate goal of 170, and then learn how to maintain it.
    2. To be better with planning my meals each week
    3. to get up in the morning, and have a rough idea of what I plan to eat the rest of the day.
    4. To stop mindless eating. To learn how to eat to live, not live to eat.
    5. To make drinking water a regular habit.. and drink 8+ glasses of water a day
    6. To curb and stop nitetime snacking for good.

    Weekly weigh-in. I plan on weighing every friday
    Jan 1st: 195.6
    Jan 8: 194.4 . down 1.2#
    Jan 15: 194.6. up .2 # I was down to 193.4 2 days ago .. but this reflects 2 days of mindless eating.
    Jan 22: 191.4 down 3.2# . Five out of 7 days were good ... (Down 4.2 for the month so far)

    Overall good day but it was a fight

    For Friday

    -I'm grateful for technology, specifically my Kindle. The small Paperwhite makes it easy to read in bed and when I do travel it's very convenient and lightweight for the plane and hotels. Really working to read more and cut back on scrolling the news and watching TV. The Kindle makes that possible.
    - 1900 calories: 1894 Frontloaded calories so ended up restricting at the end of the day. Not the path I want to take
    - Walk for 40 minutes: Chose not to walk or work out. Broke my 21 day streak of walking
    - Eat between 8 and 6: Started at 7 but cut off at 5:30
    - Eat dinner at the table: Nope
    - Invest 15 minutes on professional development: Nope
    - Invest 30 minutes on home duties: Nope but kept up with my stuff
    - Read one book chapter in bed: Nope, scrolled news. Not productive

    For Saturday:

    -Grateful for the progress I've made in adopting a lifestyle versus a timed event. With 12+ months down on my journey I'm looking at my diet and exercise more as a lifetime commitment versus a means to a end. Not there 100% but making progress.
    -1900 calories:
    -Work out for 90 minutes:
    -Eat between 8 and 6:
    -Eat dinner at the table:
    -Invest 15 minutes on professional development:
    -Invest 30 minutes on home duties:
    -Read one book chapter in bed. Shut off the wifi.:

    @Bex953172 love you girl. Here if you need a friend, but understand reaching out is tough. Be careful stopping your antidepressants all at once, some you need to come off of slowly.

    Hi all! I hope it's okay to join-in? I've been looking for an active thread where folks check in daily and interact. :smile: I'll try to go back and read some of ya'lls posts after work tonight. (Updated to add: Friend requests are welcome! My profile is filled out and my diary is open.)

    My name's Trent, I'm 37 from Colorado. I've lived alone with 2 dogs and a cat since my wife died from cancer in 2019. Eating has always been an emotional coping mechanism for me, so needless to say my weight went up in 2019 & 2020. I'd like to change that, and have been tracking my food and activity consistently for 51 days now - I committed 11/23/2020 at 250.4 lbs (I'm 5' 3.5"), and currently weigh 227.2.

    My primary motivator for making this lifestyle change is that I intend on undergoing IVF this year to conceive a child (I'm a trans man & can carry a child) - my wife and I were trying to conceive in the 2 years before she died, and we lost the one pregnancy we had at about 20 weeks (also in 2019), which was devastating. I still want to be a parent, and don't feel like I can wait any longer given my age. Most IVF clinics won't proceed with IVF if your BMI is over a certain level, so I'm trying to get my BMI down to a point where it won't be a stressor during the process. I've wanted to lose weight anyways, but this was what really kicked me in the pants to get serious.

    2021 Goals:
    Walk or Jog 1000 miles - (at 26.5/1000)
    consistently track my eating and activity (Logged 10/10 days so far)
    Weight from 230.9 12/31/2020 to 190-200 lbs. by 3/31/2021 (currently 227.2)
    undergo IVF (will continue trying to lose weight until I conceive)

    JFT Monday 1/11:
    Drink lots of water - goal = 100 oz. (in the form of coffee (1 cup), plain water, or herbal tea)
    Walk/Jog 3 miles on treadmill after work
    Go to bed at 9:30pm, wake up at 6am in the morning
    Log food/activity
    Burn 3100 cal/Eat 1400, deficit 1700

    WELCOME!😍😃🌹👏👏👏🤗 WELCOME!! WELCOME TRENT! GREAT TO HAVE YOU. Great support with this group... I love it here. ENJOY! 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 WELCOME

    Recap 1/22 TGIF
    1) Move hourly :/ more sedentary than planned 12/14 & 5.3k
    2) Prelog / net cals zero / 14c water :)
    3) Rest day? Treadmill later?
    4) Work at home: AJNH updates / update Project Status s/s / PRO s/s comments / submit PRO & PAR s/s / keep up with emails / Facebook Live 12:00 = 6/6
    5) Declutter 15 min. / at least one other chore = 2/2
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / no Sat. alarm (workout if F rest day) = 2/5

    JFT 1/23 Sat.
    1) X-train
    2) Move hourly
    3) Net cals zero / 14c water
    4) Air in car tires / declutter 15 min. / one other chore
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 7:45 alarm (9:00 church)

    @Snowflake1968 Thanks for the words of support. I actually know at least six people that have had cataract surgery (years ago for some). The most recent one (just over a year ago) is a friend close in age to me & he was thrilled with the results. Based on preliminary info from my optometrist, I probably won't have to wear glasses for distance anymore. I've worn either glasses or contacts since I was in the 5th grade, so I'm looking forward to that change!

    Very cold day again, feels like temp is 0. Don't want to expose dog to that for an hour or more walk, so x-training in basement after I post JFT. Have a good day, all!

    2021 Goals:
    1) Weight 150#
    2) Plan meals most days & prelog meals/snacks whenever possible on MFP
    3) Post weekly weigh-in on JFT for accountability. Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale.
    4) Take measurements & log on MFP every month end ~ remember this year!
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking but include weights/circuit & other x-training
    6) Participate in race or challenge events even if virtual ~ started MapMyWalk You Vs. Year 1021K on Jan. 1 / virtual 50 Mile Frenzy 11.27.20 - 1.15.21 (replaced Frenzy on the Fox for Jan. 2021) 50.37 miles 12.17.20 and continuing to log / Tour de Northeast WI virtual challenge: cover distance from Oshkosh to Gills Rock (139 miles) 1.1.21 - 3.31.21
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together ~ excellent goal last year that should be repeated
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states) ~ had this goal in 2020 and how ironic
    9) Declutter bedroom, home office and basement ~ made good progress in 2020 & want to keep it up
    Word for 2021: Gratitude ~ be mindful of & appreciate my many blessings

    Hey everyone, been feeling pretty low recently. I took my meds everyday for 4 weeks and unfortunately they've not worked and are actually making me feel worse. Well not worse. But just numb. And I just keep isolating myself from everyone. As soon as it gets too noisy or to OTT or I just find it too hard. I just go upstairs into my room. I do this normally, but for 10 mins to compose myself and then hit it head on but I've been spending hours and the whole day the other day.
    I'm sleeping far more than I should be, my house is getting a mess again but then it seems to daunting to even start.
    The worst thing, I didn't even notice. Ash told me, I flipped out at first because he suggested I should take my antidepressants again and now he's saying I should come off them. But that's not his fault, we both agreed I should go on them and they worked in the past, but he could see familiar patterns returning and he knew what that meant. So after having an honest talk about how I really thought if they were working. I realised they just weren't and I was doing the same things in the past which weren't helping me then either.
    So now I've stopped taking them and I'm ringing the doctor again on Monday, I don't know what they're going to suggest but I'll just have to wait and see.

    Ash told me to come on here and tell you guys because he said youve supported me in the past because I told him I hadn't even bothered posting on here anymore.

    I was just getting more lost, so I'm back kind of.
    I just don't really know what to do anymore.
    I do t know how to live normally, literally nothing makes me happy and if something does its very short lived.
    Caseys poorly so everyone's off school and I'm already 3 days behind with home learning :(

    I don't really know what to expect back from posting this but Ash said I'd feel better if I told you what was going on and get your support.

    Im really grateful for my partner, he knows me better than everyone and always tries to get me on the right path to get me better

    Thanks for reading, I'm not after a pity party but just wanted to say I'm sorry I've not been on here I'm just finding it hard x

    I hope everyone else is well x

    🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗❤ OH MY BEAUTIFUL BEX... I too am thankful for Ash telling you to come share. This was a very strong and brave move on your part to share this with us. You already know we want to physically be there for you. But such as we have, we offer ourselves to you. Endless hugs, and love. I won't water it down by saying I know how you feel. I don't because we each have a different level of what we can and can't take. So the more you talk, the more we will be able to comprehend what you're going through. You share as much and as often and however you want and need to. We ARE ABSOLUTELY HERE FOR YOU... I truly mean that. I love you so much.

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    Age 63, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)

    Hey everyone, been feeling pretty low recently. I took my meds everyday for 4 weeks and unfortunately they've not worked and are actually making me feel worse. Well not worse. But just numb. And I just keep isolating myself from everyone. As soon as it gets too noisy or to OTT or I just find it too hard. I just go upstairs into my room. I do this normally, but for 10 mins to compose myself and then hit it head on but I've been spending hours and the whole day the other day.
    I'm sleeping far more than I should be, my house is getting a mess again but then it seems to daunting to even start.
    The worst thing, I didn't even notice. Ash told me, I flipped out at first because he suggested I should take my antidepressants again and now he's saying I should come off them. But that's not his fault, we both agreed I should go on them and they worked in the past, but he could see familiar patterns returning and he knew what that meant. So after having an honest talk about how I really thought if they were working. I realised they just weren't and I was doing the same things in the past which weren't helping me then either.
    So now I've stopped taking them and I'm ringing the doctor again on Monday, I don't know what they're going to suggest but I'll just have to wait and see.

    Ash told me to come on here and tell you guys because he said youve supported me in the past because I told him I hadn't even bothered posting on here anymore.

    I was just getting more lost, so I'm back kind of.
    I just don't really know what to do anymore.
    I do t know how to live normally, literally nothing makes me happy and if something does its very short lived.
    Caseys poorly so everyone's off school and I'm already 3 days behind with home learning :(

    I don't really know what to expect back from posting this but Ash said I'd feel better if I told you what was going on and get your support.

    Im really grateful for my partner, he knows me better than everyone and always tries to get me on the right path to get me better

    Thanks for reading, I'm not after a pity party but just wanted to say I'm sorry I've not been on here I'm just finding it hard x

    I hope everyone else is well x

    Oh @bex ... many hugs to you dear friend. I am so sorry that you have not been feeling well. I missed seeing you posting, and had hoped that you were doing OK.. so thank you for updating us. The right combination of medication makes such a difference. I know you know about my daughter.. while she is more severe, she still suffers a lot from depression and lack of joy. The right combination of meds is what helps. No one should have to live a life where you cannot find joy .. and its not because of anything you are doing .. its the inbalance of chemicals. So I am so glad that you have a appointment with the doctor. Sometimes it takes someone else to see what is going on, and I am happy you have Ash there with you .. to let you know that you need support.

    We all love you here .. please post anytime. You are always so quick to help anyone on here .... we are also here to help and support you, and will always be here for you!

    <3<3<3<3<3<3 Many virtual Hugs <3<3<3<3<3<3<3

    Good day on Saturday

    For Saturday:

    -Grateful for the progress I've made in adopting a lifestyle versus a timed event. With 12+ months down on my journey I'm looking at my diet and exercise more as a lifetime commitment versus a means to a end. Not there 100% but making progress.
    -1900 calories: 1863
    -Work out for 90 minutes: 88 minutes including a difficult 44 minute, 2.12 mile treadmill walk
    -Eat between 8 and 6: Done
    -Eat dinner at the table: Done
    -Invest 15 minutes on professional development: Podcast on treadmill
    -Invest 30 minutes on home duties: Solid progress on files
    -Read one book chapter in bed. Shut off the wifi.:Nope, triple meh


    For Sunday:

    - I'm grateful for the influence of Tony Robbins. Many, many positive messages but one that is a guiding principle for me is that I don't get what I deserve or want but what I accept.
    - 1950 calories:
    - Work out for 90 minutes:
    - Eat between 8 and 6:
    - Eat dinner at the table:
    - Invest 15 minutes on professional development:
    - Invest 30 minutes on home duties:
    - Shut off wifi when I go to bed:

    @Bex953172 So sorry you are having a hard time at the moment. It's not surprising. We are not designed to live under the added pressure of our present circumstances on top of the usual winter gloom. It's good that you have Ash by your side. And we have broad shoulders, and wish only the best for you.

    It seems that many of us are suffering a bad cases of the January blues. This time in January is documented as being a real downer, and then we have the added pressures of the worsened situation with Covid. But we will get through it.

    This week I got lost down a rabbit hole of sloth. This is my least favourite month in the year as the weather is so wet and dull.

    However, I got a real boost this morning when I opened my curtains to a wonderful white winter wonderland. This is a rare occurrence where we live. It brings back memories of snowball fights, snowmen and, of course, ski-ing in the Alps. Cheered me up no end. Spring will be here before we know it. My snowdrops are in flower and there are even a few crocuses showing their faces.

    i9zf7r27zbgp.jpg

    Then I stepped on the scale and got a second boost. Lowest weight since I was in my thirties.

    @WellingTX Tony Robbins is one of my favourites. I have several of his books, well-thumbed and bookmarked.

    Terri 🦄

    2. Read and notes for ch 20-21 P&P. Groceries.
    3. Unload/reload/run dishwasher. Set 2 of lifts.
    4. Lunch: Sushi. Buy Hood Feminism and New Jim Crow?
    5. Stretch. Philosophy of ed. Podcast.
    6. Afternoon: Run - 3 miles? Organize dresser.
    7. Evening: S&F 4. Dinner: Tikka Masala. Breathe. Set 3 of lifts. Update directions for Tuesday.
    8. Drink more water. No, more. Keep the pitcher in the fridge full. You're not actually hungry. Make some tea. Drink more water! Chop celery and pack lunch. Set out clothes for tomorrow. Set up JFT for tomorrow.
    9. Shower. Review papers by desk. File or trash. Pester S about sending emails for characters.
    10. Gratitude journal. Therapy exercises: crunches, push-ups, squats, ankle lifts, box jumps, plank. Meds. Floss, rinse, brush teeth. Wed book group. MH Monday check-in; Tough Question Tuesday; Whatever Wednesday AMA; Thankful Thursday. Indochino suit fitting - Atlanta or Nashville?

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of 2020: 187.4
    Today: 191.2

    Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
    1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
    2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
    3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
    4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
    5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals.
    6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning – March? ObG schedule for April. Schedule PCP for May.
    7. Theater: Little Princess.
    8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor.
    9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
    11. Family: Book group. Dinners?
    12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story. Open Wordpress in Safari.
    13. Lifting: 15 squats, 15 deadlifts, 10 shoulder presses, 15 arm raises, 15 pushups, 30 crunches, 15 side lifts, 15 back kicks, horse stance for 5 breaths.
    14. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Check on appts for drs. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

    WFTY: Persistence. This week I need to start making parent calls. I'm still trying to do too much. I'm going to be cutting back on the videos but I have lots of books to read and I'm thinking about getting back to blogging. I need to be careful.
    Reminder: Last year's WFTY was progress, and I am ... actually, I was going to say content, but it's more than that. I'm proud of myself, and I'm pleased with the progress that I made. Even without the challenges throughout the year, I accomplished things that I should be proud of; and given those challenges, I'm even happier about what I was able to do.

    It's 8:30 pm Sunday, but I wanted to hop on and post goals for tomorrow since I have an early dental appointment.

    @Bex953172 Oh honey, I wish I could give you a great big hug. I totally agree with what the others have said (Mary, Joan, Terri). We are here to listen anytime you need to get anything off your chest. We all love you so much! I hope you can get in to see your doctor soon. Like Joan said, many times it's a chemical imbalance that they just have to find the right medication for. I have been on a few different kinds until they found what worked for me. Sometimes the med that worked in the past doesn't anymore and they need to try a new one. You can WhatsApp me anytime! I think just talking about it sometimes can take a huge load off our backs. If I don't reply right away, it might mean I'm with my mom. She gets ticked off if I text anyone while I'm around her. :wink: BIG HUGS my friend!

    [*] 25 Jan: 143.8⏬ My lowest weight in over 40 years. 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 I have reset my UGW.
    [*] Total weight loss: 83.2 ⏫

    @TerriRichardson112 that's a major accomplishment, well done! I'm so happy for you :)

    I don't know what happened with me last week, I took one planned day off logging and just never started back again. Quite deliberately ate over my calories every day, even had wine which I don't do very often (and it takes me a few evenings to finish a bottle on my own!)

    So starting again! It's one month until my next osteopath appointment and I really want to have lost something by then, and also see some improvement from the exercises she gave me. So just focussing on the next few weeks.

    JFT Monday 25th Jan

    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    No evening snacking
    Back exercises x2
    Walk, it's freezing out
    Admin, again! Stuff for Dad's estate today
    Housework

    Woke this morning to find the central heating boiler had turned itself off again as it was so cold (great design...not!)
    Been outside in my dressing gown dismantling the pipe to get it going again. So now just waiting on the water heating up so I can shower. I am thankful I have heating to warm my house.

    For Monday:

    -I'm grateful for my health, that I'm able to do the things I can. Started MPF, again, 01.01.2020. Grateful over a year later that I made that first logging entry.
