    2nd Week Goal Weight: < 212
    2nd Week Actual Weight: N/A Returned my mom’s scale since we were leaving out early to return home.

    Day 9: Sun, 1/3: 211.6 Walked 3 miles after 5 hr drive, plank, 1531 cal, 48 net carbs, 2 wine. Time to get back on plan ... saw this number on Dec 15 and it is a relief that it returned after seeing higher numbers during the holidays.
    Day 10: Mon, 1/4: 210.1 Walk 5 miles, plank, 1751 cal, 57 net carbs, AF.
    Jumping up and down!!! Finally see the zero at the end of the number ... I know that numbers on the scale are not the end all but a zero is a happy place to land right now. Can't wait to see the next zero when I hit 200!
    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 210.0 Walked 3.7 miles in Memorial Park, plank, 1902 cal, 64 net carbs, 1 glass wine.

I’m not a chocolate person but the Russell Stover - Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mix with Stevia (low net carb but still high calorie) is too tempting and I find I’m snacking on it too much when bored or stressed. I need to break this new habit.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: See the ZERO … 210.anything
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 209.3 Yeah! I saw 210 and whooshed down to 209 and held it for another day 🎯
    NSV of sorts. I woke up this morning because my gown was bunched up at my hip and when laying on my side I could feel my hip hurting. Seems I have much less padding now that I've lost 35 lbs LOL

    Day 16: Sun, 1/10: 210.3 Walked 3 miles, bike, plank, 1873 carbs, 73 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Swoosh the pound is back 🙁
    NSV Took my measurements and I'm 3" smaller in bust & hips and 2" smaller in the waist so I dug into my drawer and found a favorite old pair of pajamas bottoms to try on and they fit!!!
    Day 17: Mon, 1/11: 210.0 Walked .25 miles rain, plank, 1969 cal, 88 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Too much chocolate and lots of canned & frozen meals today.
    Day 18: Tues, 1/12: 210.5 Walk 1.4 miles, bike, plank, 1184 cal, 75 net carbs, AF. I believe the stirfry with soy sauce that made me thirsty for water last night is cause for the bump.
    Day 19: Wed, 1/13: 209.5 Walked 2.4 miles, plank, 1600 cal, 98 net carbs, 1.5 glasses of wine. Happy to see the 209 again from last mid week. Now to hang on to it over a weekend!
    Day 20: Thurs, 1/14: 209.1 Walked 3.9 + 2.9 miles, plank, 1005 cal, 43 net carbs, AF.
    Day 21: Fri, 1/15: 207.9 Walked 2.5 + .5 miles, plank, 1473 cal, 17 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Unexpected dinner out Brandini’s lettuce wrap burger, no fries & Paco y Lola Albarino (dry white wine). Today’s calories are a result of still too much sugar free choc habit.
    Nightly plank routine is so funny! DH & I on the floor with our standard poodle joining us for a plank minute break! All of us are enjoying it.
    Day 22: Sat, 1/16: 209.3 Walk 3.3 + .6 miles, ⁉️1926 cal, 🔺116 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Palazzo’s bread sticks & pizza and Blue Bell Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream did damage obviously.

    4th Week Goal Weight: 208.x Shooting for my 15% goal
    4th Week Actual Weight: 209.3 I let it slip away from me.

    I'm Dawn. I live in SE British Columbia, Canada.

    Female, Age 60, 5'3" (or maybe only 5'2" by now)

    MFP Start Weight Oct 28.18: 191.0
    Ultimate Goal Weight: Not sure

    This is my 5th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    Day 1: 12/26: 137.7 - Extremely active day, but also ate quite a bit. 451 calories left over in the Green
    Day 2: 12/27: 137.1 - I have enough leftovers for a few days, stuffing and gravy is my weakness so I will load my plate with veggies and turkey and stretch out the badder stuff : - ) 561 in the Green
    Day 3: 12/28: 137.7 - I was awake throughout the night and weighed less just now, but am using my very early morning weight. 717 in the Green
    Day 4: 12/29: 137.2 - Back on track at least until NYE. 302 in the Green
    Day 5: 12/30: 137.5 - Hiccup yesterday, some sad news and went off a bit. 791 in the Green
    Day 6: 12/31: 138.3 - That is the highest that I have weighed in awhile. Not going to overdo it tonight, but I will have some Champagne and something delicious to eat. 384 in the Green
    Day 7: 01/01: 138.4 - I had Ribs, it might catch up more. I have had lots of activity, but also ate more than usual. 111 in the Green
    Day 8: 01/02: 137.2 - Now to get rid of the holiday eating. 624 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight:
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 137.2 - i see that I didn't set a goal weight for this week!
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3490 - So close to a pound worth
    Day 9: Sun, 1/3: 136.1 - A bunch of water loss yesterday. I remained very active throughout the holidays even though I upped my consumption. Very happy to see this number, it motivates me. 417 in the Green
    Day 10: Mon, 1/4: 135.9 - Going to do my measurements today. an astounding 1278 in the Green
    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 135.4 - Many workouts yesterday, and back to healthier eating. A scale drop always motivates me to be "good". We all fight so hard for each pound, too easy to backslide and undo the hard work. 1354 in the Green
    Day 12: Wed, 1/6: 135.5 - Very long work day and a very late dinner. Burned lots of calories and didn't eat them back, hoping that shows up in a day or two. 1190 in the Green
    Day 13: Thurs, 1/7: 134.8 - New low : - ) All of this calorie burning is showing up on the scale. Work alone was 20,000 steps yesterday on top of my daily workout. 506 in the Green
    Day 14: Fri, 1/8: 134.1 - Lowest so far in many many years. Hoping to keep this going. 620 in the Green
    Day 15: Sat, 1/9: 135.1 - Kind of bad choices yesterday, but I touched that 134.1 once so I know that I can get back there. 721 in the Green
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 135.1
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 135.1
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 6086, should have lost more than a pound, and did.

    Week 4:

    Day 16: 1/10: 137.4 - Wow, almost back up to Day 1 weight for some reason. Hoping that this is just a fluctuation. I have been on track except for Friday (which obviously caught up to me just now), but even then I was under calorie goals due to activity. 831 in the Green
    Day 17: 1/11: 137.4 - Got in lots of activity yesterday because I was planning on a huge steak and prawns for dinner. This will fuel my body for days to come, but I want to get this number back down. 663 in the Green
    Day 18: 1/12: 136.1 - Better, still 1 pound up from last week. 668 in the Green
    Day 19: 1/13: 136.5 - I'm okay with this, but hope to get closer to last week's EW. 558 in the Green
    Day 20: 1/14: 135.8 - Sticking with the plan. Hoping to be able to leave work and get up to another town's arena for a 1 hour public skate today. 827 in the Green
    Day 21: 1/15: 136.7 - Loads of activity yesterday, but .. Nachos. 410 in the Green
    Day 22: 1/16: 136.5 - So it looks like I lost 1 pound in a month. 452 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 134.4
    4th Week Actual Weight: 136.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3778 - just enough to lose a pound

    Day 23: Sun, 1/17: 137.3 - Ouch, apparently still paying for Friday's nachos. 999 in the Green
    Day 24: Mon, 1/18: - 135.8 - Much better. Now to get back to week 2's weights. 705 in the Green
    Day 25: Tues, 1/19: - 135.6 - Got in a few extra Fitness Marshall songs here and there 2 or 3 at a time throughout the day yesterday which added up to a nice calorie burn (and mood lifter) overall. 539 in the Green
    Day 26: Wed, 1/20: - 135.5 - I have moved all of my jobs from today to tomorrow. I am going to get out for a nice long walk/hike. Yesterday was incredibly windy with dust blowing everywhere when I tried to leave work for a small walk/break so I didn't spend any time outdoors. I had my 2 year physical early in the morning. Doc was pleased with my weight loss, but still needs me to lose more to bring my blood pressure further down and get me to a healthy body weight for my height. Working on it. Very slow. 526 in the Green
    Day 27: Thurs, 1/21: 135.4 - Always happy to see a drop even if tiny. 368 in the Green
    Day 28: Fri, 1/22: 136.9 : - ( 472 in the Green
    Day 29: Sat, 1/23: 136.4

    5th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    5th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - disappointed with this, but know that it is up to me.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - I will fill this in after today's numbers

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ December 26, 2020 thru April 4, 2021
    My Name is Donna, Age 60. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    145320379.png


    Day 01 – 12/26 …..205.4…..My family Christmas dinner is on Sunday (tomorrow). I expect to see an increase. Good luck everyone this round.
    Day 02 – 12/27 …..203.2…..A nice big Whoosh. I cut back yesterday in anticipation for my very large Christmas Dinner and party today. I expect the scale will be up tomorrow, but I will be a good girl in the days following.
    Day 03 – 12/28 …..205.2…..Dinner was salty and fatty but delicious. I’ve got my work cut out for me.
    Day 04[/ b] – 12/29 …..206.0….. It had to be the over-abundance of wine. Perhaps dinner catching up a little with me too from 2 days ago?
    Day 05 - 12/30 …..206.0….. Poured out the wine and chose Chinese instead. Gave away the last of the goodies too. I will have the other half of the Chinese today.
    Day 06 – 12/31 …..207.0….. Expecting alcohol tonight but I will keep the food in check! Had the last of the Chinese food yesterday.

    Weight Loss in December……………….. 1.6 lb GAIN.
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..1.6 LB GAIN


    Day 07 – 01/01 …..207.8….. Ouch! Chinese catching up? My late December Christmas dinner showing up? Perhaps. But then there were the buckeye balls brought over yesterday. The rest will go to my grandchildren that are visiting today.
    Day 08 – 01/02 …..208.1….. Travel today and tomorrow.
    Day 09 – 01/03 …..207.1….. Not sure I understand the fluctuations. It should have been yesterdays higher number or even higher after travel and restaurant food. Likely water retention released? More travel today.
    Day 10 – 01/04 …..207.4.….. Travel day cancelled yesterday. That allowed me to reach my 10,000 steps. However, my dinner wasn’t until 3:30 a.m. so that did not help the 9:00 a.m. weigh-in.
    Day 11 – 01/05 …..207.0….. I will have lots of company today as I’ve called in the troops to help me un-decorate and store my Christmas décor. I’m not sure how my meals will go – probably a very late dinner again, but I will get in lots of movement I hope.
    Day 12 – 01/06 …..207.2…..A normal fluctuation. Worked on taking down my Christmas stuff today with the help of one of my handymen. A long day.
    Day 13 – 01/07 …..207.2….. Drank milk. It always bloats me. Meals were good.
    Day 14 – 01/08 …..207.0….. Better portion control. @dawnbgethealthy WAY TO GO GIRL!!!! YOU ARE SLAYING IT!!!!
    Day 15 – 01/09 …..208.6….. Well-planned meals but milk seems to bloat me and kill my progress. I’m going back to a small amount of Fairlife. No more real milk, even when it’s lowfat!!!!
    Day 16 – 01/10 …..208.6….. Kept calories good again yesterday and avoided milk. Meals very late as a friend stopped by without notice until 11:00 p.m. That may explain it along with no TMI x 2 days now. My big worry coming up is the remodel we will likely be starting later this week in one of the bathrooms. It is friends and family helping and my meals will be interrupted greatly forcing late meals on the regular. It will be too many to feed and I just can’t eat in front of anyone. There will be many projects this year. I’ve got to figure it all out.
    Day 17 - 01/11 …..207.0….. Whoosh. Bathroom duty was better. A wretched night last night filled with personal family turmoil. Bad sleep. Traveled today while so unrested, so we will see what tomorrow holds.
    Day 18 – 01/12 …..207.0….. I am very happy to see no gain after travel. I chalk it up to falling asleep early causing all my meals to be earlier. However, sometimes it shows up a couple of days later so I will be watching and tracking the patterns.
    Day 19 – 01/13 …..207.2….. A tiny fluctuation. I managed to increase my steps yesterday but I had to work for it. I added a two mile indoor walk to get me over the hump.
    Day 20 – 01/14 …..207.0….. Movie night last night. A very good low cal/low carb planned dinner but the snacks were off-target. I’ll eat better today but not much movement. Feeling tired…..
    Day 21 – 01/15 …..xxxxx….. No chance to weigh today. A friend woke me up banging on door. Yesterday was good but last night I had too many bad snacks.
    Day 22 – 01/16 …..207.0….. A complete rest day yesterday. In bed at 6:45 pm to watch TV until 3:00 am. Slept in this morning to get more sleep than I’ve gotten in months. Over 6 hours which is AMAZING for me. I usually just don’t seem to need more than about 4.5 hours. Maybe retirement will change my sleeping patterns for the better! Going for a 6 for tomorrow’s numbers!
    Day 23 – 01/17 …..206.8…..Finally a 6! Barely, but finally!
    Day 24 – 01/18 …..206.2….. 3 meals instead of 2 yesterday but no snacks. Finally TMI (bathroom duty). It helped. Now I am going to push for a 5.
    Day 25 – 01/19 …..205.6…..Yay! The meals still aren’t perfect but I am focusing on at least a 12/12 IF and a “very diet” dinner in a small quantity. I am still eating very late, but better. Focusing on sleep. Phone woke me up at 5 hours & 5 minutes today. I forgot to mute it. Still better than usual but I would have slept a bit more otherwise. I feel my body fighting me a bit. I woke up starving. I am listening to the cues. I had a bit of an early breakfast. I will keep my dinner light.
    Day 26 – 01/20 …..205.2….. Moving right along and hoping to keep it up! This puts me back to just below my starting weight. Now, to get busy!
    Day 27 – 01/21 …..205.4….. Just a small fluctuation. Yesterday was pretty busy. Ended up with OMAD and low calorie but not much exercise or movement. Lots of water though! I am still feeling happy and strong!
    Day 28 – 01/22 …..205.2…..
    Day 29 – 01/23 …..206.2….. I cooked a beautiful low calorie and low carb meal for my friend yesterday. Day was going great. Then……late night snack monster reared his ugly head. Pop-tarts and milk. It wasn’t worth a full pound gain by any stretch of the imagination. I will try to extra-tweak today to make up for it so that pound doesn’t stick around.

    1st Week Goal Weight: N/A
    1st Week Actual Weight: N/A

    Day 2: Sun, 12/27: 212.5 Walked 4.4 +2.2 miles, plank, still snacking on cake & cookies arghhhhh. Pizza & 2 glasses wine for dinner.
    Day 3: Mon, 12/28: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.5 miles, plank, 1691 cal, 157 net carbs, 2 bourbon & diet cokes. I forgot the scale!! Guess I’ll have to check in on my mom’s off and on this week.
    Day 4: Tues, 12/29: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 2 miles, Fishing caught a 20” speckled trout & 23” redfish, 1611 cal, 163 net carbs, AF (though lots of temptations)
    Day 5: Wed, 12/30: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 No exercise, fishing & helped mom, 2044 cal, 131 net carbs, 1 bourbon diet coke + 2 wine.
    Day 6: Thurs, 12/31: 213.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 2.6 miles, fishing caught nothing, 1359 cal, 83 net carbs 1 bourbon diet coke. Borrowed my mom’s scale.

    Day 8: Sat, 1/2: DNW @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked .5 miles, plank, fishing caught nothing, 1971 cal, 78 net carbs, toast with 1 small glass champagne.
    2nd Week Goal Weight: < 212
    2nd Week Actual Weight: N/A Returned my mom’s scale since we were leaving out early to return home.

    Day 9: Sun, 1/3: 211.6 Walked 3 miles after 5 hr drive, plank, 1531 cal, 48 net carbs, 2 wine. Time to get back on plan ... saw this number on Dec 15 and it is a relief that it returned after seeing higher numbers during the holidays.
    Day 10: Mon, 1/4: 210.1 Walk 5 miles, plank, 1751 cal, 57 net carbs, AF.
    Jumping up and down!!! Finally see the zero at the end of the number ... I know that numbers on the scale are not the end all but a zero is a happy place to land right now. Can't wait to see the next zero when I hit 200!
    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 210.0 Walked 3.7 miles in Memorial Park, plank, 1902 cal, 64 net carbs, 1 glass wine.

    Day 13: Thurs, 1/7: 211.1 Rain, bike, plank, 1669 cal, 69 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Food tracking is incomplete. Stress eating while TV flicking news channels and putting together 2020 expense reflection for our home budget and retirement planning.

I’m not a chocolate person but the Russell Stover - Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mix with Stevia (low net carb but still high calorie) is too tempting and I find I’m snacking on it too much when bored or stressed. I need to break this new habit.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: See the ZERO … 210.anything
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 209.3 Yeah! I saw 210 and whooshed down to 209 and held it for another day 🎯
    NSV of sorts. I woke up this morning because my gown was bunched up at my hip and when laying on my side I could feel my hip hurting. Seems I have much less padding now that I've lost 35 lbs LOL

    Day 16: Sun, 1/10: 210.3 Walked 3 miles, bike, plank, 1873 carbs, 73 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Swoosh the pound is back 🙁
    NSV Took my measurements and I'm 3" smaller in bust & hips and 2" smaller in the waist so I dug into my drawer and found a favorite old pair of pajamas bottoms to try on and they fit!!!
    Day 17: Mon, 1/11: 210.0 Walked .25 miles rain, plank, 1969 cal, 88 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Too much chocolate and lots of canned & frozen meals today.
    Day 18: Tues, 1/12: 210.5 Walk 1.4 miles, bike, plank, 1184 cal, 75 net carbs, AF. I believe the stirfry with soy sauce that made me thirsty for water last night is cause for the bump.
    Day 19: Wed, 1/13: 209.5 Walked 2.4 miles, plank, 1600 cal, 98 net carbs, 1.5 glasses of wine. Happy to see the 209 again from last mid week. Now to hang on to it over a weekend!
    Day 20: Thurs, 1/14: 209.1 Walked 3.9 + 2.9 miles, plank, 1005 cal, 43 net carbs, AF.
    Day 21: Fri, 1/15: 207.9 Walked 2.5 + .5 miles, plank, 1473 cal, 17 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Unexpected dinner out Brandini’s lettuce wrap burger, no fries & Paco y Lola Albarino (dry white wine). Today’s calories are a result of still too much sugar free choc habit.
    Nightly plank routine is so funny! DH & I on the floor with our standard poodle joining us for a plank minute break! All of us are enjoying it.
    Day 22: Sat, 1/16: 209.3 Walk 3.3 + .6 miles, ⁉️1926 cal, 🔺116 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Palazzo’s bread sticks & pizza and Blue Bell Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream did damage obviously.

    4th Week Goal Weight: 208.x Shooting for my 15% goal
    4th Week Actual Weight: 209.3 I let it slip away from me.

    Day 23: Sun, 1/17: 209.6 Hike 1.8 miles in Austin, 1195 cal, 53 net carbs, AF. Not enough water and not sure I believe the calculations on my food today.
    Day 24: Mon, 1/18: 208.6 Plank, yard work, cleaning attic, 2008 cal, 65 net carbs, 2 glasses wine + 2 rum & 7up.
    Day 25: Tues, 1/19: 209.1 Walked 3 miles, plank, 1967 cal, 41 net carbs, AF.
    NSV: Purged my closet of size 20 pants! ✔️ Shopping in my closets I found I have two times the number of pants and capris size 18 that fit now!!!! Whooohoo!
    Day 26: Wed, 1/20: 208.4 Walked 3.7 + 1.2 miles, plank, 1707 cal, 46 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 27: Thurs, 1/21: 207.7 Walked 3 miles, bike, plank, 1533 cal, 125 net carbs, AF. 2nd time I’ve seen 207 at the end of the week. Can I make it stick?
    Day 28: Fri, 1/22: 209.6 Walked 2.5 miles, bike, plank, 1424 cal, 95 net carbs, AF. Whoa way up! Pasta for lunch & pizza for dinner is not carb friendly.
    NSV: Actually tucked my shirt into my jeans & wore a belt out this evening.
    Day 29: Sat, 1/23: 209.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles, 1849 cal, 138 net carbs, 1 bourbon & 7up. Walked after long car ride. Snacking did me in. Brought my scale to the camp!

    5th Week Goal Weight: 208.x Shooting for my 15% goal
    Dipped down last week to 207.9. This time I need to make it stick
    5th Week Actual Weight: 209.6 Well darn! I saw suck great numbers this week then I let my cravings get the better of me.

    @dawnbgethealthy - 4 falls ice skating this week might be better than sitting on the couch ... okay it definitely is but OUCH! Take care ... we break easily as we age.

    @deepwoodslady - I can't keep pop tarts in the house ... they would be eaten too! I remember walking down the aisle in December and seeing pumpkin cinnamon pop tarts and other new flavors and thinking I should try some of these ... it won't hurt. But put them back. I'm just not strong enough to have the box in the house without sitting down and eating them all.

    I'm struggling here ... I've gotten to 207.x multiple times in the past couple of weeks then I just start snacking throughout the day or blowing things up with portions. I know this time around it was Thursday's unexpected pasta for lunch and then DS2 inviting us out for pizza. I'm still paying for it but the carbs on Thurs really got me snacking ... nuts, chips, candy, crackers, pretzels, cookies, cheese, etc. I'm journalling it and it might not seem like a lot each time but it adds up.
    Today I'm telling myself is the day to put on the brakes and quit carb snacking at the fishing camp.

    One fall ice skating, 3 falls walking on icy trails.

    I'm Dawn. I live in SE British Columbia, Canada.

    Female, Age 60, 5'3" (or maybe only 5'2" by now)

    MFP Start Weight Oct 28.18: 191.0
    Ultimate Goal Weight: Not sure

    This is my 5th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    Day 1: 12/26: 137.7 - Extremely active day, but also ate quite a bit. 451 calories left over in the Green
    Day 2: 12/27: 137.1 - I have enough leftovers for a few days, stuffing and gravy is my weakness so I will load my plate with veggies and turkey and stretch out the badder stuff : - ) 561 in the Green
    Day 3: 12/28: 137.7 - I was awake throughout the night and weighed less just now, but am using my very early morning weight. 717 in the Green
    Day 4: 12/29: 137.2 - Back on track at least until NYE. 302 in the Green
    Day 5: 12/30: 137.5 - Hiccup yesterday, some sad news and went off a bit. 791 in the Green
    Day 6: 12/31: 138.3 - That is the highest that I have weighed in awhile. Not going to overdo it tonight, but I will have some Champagne and something delicious to eat. 384 in the Green
    Day 7: 01/01: 138.4 - I had Ribs, it might catch up more. I have had lots of activity, but also ate more than usual. 111 in the Green
    Day 8: 01/02: 137.2 - Now to get rid of the holiday eating. 624 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight:
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 137.2 - i see that I didn't set a goal weight for this week!
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3490 - So close to a pound worth
    Day 9: Sun, 1/3: 136.1 - A bunch of water loss yesterday. I remained very active throughout the holidays even though I upped my consumption. Very happy to see this number, it motivates me. 417 in the Green
    Day 10: Mon, 1/4: 135.9 - Going to do my measurements today. an astounding 1278 in the Green
    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 135.4 - Many workouts yesterday, and back to healthier eating. A scale drop always motivates me to be "good". We all fight so hard for each pound, too easy to backslide and undo the hard work. 1354 in the Green
    Day 12: Wed, 1/6: 135.5 - Very long work day and a very late dinner. Burned lots of calories and didn't eat them back, hoping that shows up in a day or two. 1190 in the Green
    Day 13: Thurs, 1/7: 134.8 - New low : - ) All of this calorie burning is showing up on the scale. Work alone was 20,000 steps yesterday on top of my daily workout. 506 in the Green
    Day 14: Fri, 1/8: 134.1 - Lowest so far in many many years. Hoping to keep this going. 620 in the Green
    Day 15: Sat, 1/9: 135.1 - Kind of bad choices yesterday, but I touched that 134.1 once so I know that I can get back there. 721 in the Green
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 135.1
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 135.1
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 6086, should have lost more than a pound, and did.

    Week 4:

    Day 16: 1/10: 137.4 - Wow, almost back up to Day 1 weight for some reason. Hoping that this is just a fluctuation. I have been on track except for Friday (which obviously caught up to me just now), but even then I was under calorie goals due to activity. 831 in the Green
    Day 17: 1/11: 137.4 - Got in lots of activity yesterday because I was planning on a huge steak and prawns for dinner. This will fuel my body for days to come, but I want to get this number back down. 663 in the Green
    Day 18: 1/12: 136.1 - Better, still 1 pound up from last week. 668 in the Green
    Day 19: 1/13: 136.5 - I'm okay with this, but hope to get closer to last week's EW. 558 in the Green
    Day 20: 1/14: 135.8 - Sticking with the plan. Hoping to be able to leave work and get up to another town's arena for a 1 hour public skate today. 827 in the Green
    Day 21: 1/15: 136.7 - Loads of activity yesterday, but .. Nachos. 410 in the Green
    Day 22: 1/16: 136.5 - So it looks like I lost 1 pound in a month. 452 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 134.4
    4th Week Actual Weight: 136.5
    Excess Calories left over in the Green: 3778 - just enough to lose a pound

    Day 23: Sun, 1/17: 137.3 - Ouch, apparently still paying for Friday's nachos. 999 in the Green
    Day 24: Mon, 1/18: - 135.8 - Much better. Now to get back to week 2's weights. 705 in the Green
    Day 25: Tues, 1/19: - 135.6 - Got in a few extra Fitness Marshall songs here and there 2 or 3 at a time throughout the day yesterday which added up to a nice calorie burn (and mood lifter) overall. 539 in the Green
    Day 26: Wed, 1/20: - 135.5 - I have moved all of my jobs from today to tomorrow. I am going to get out for a nice long walk/hike. Yesterday was incredibly windy with dust blowing everywhere when I tried to leave work for a small walk/break so I didn't spend any time outdoors. I had my 2 year physical early in the morning. Doc was pleased with my weight loss, but still needs me to lose more to bring my blood pressure further down and get me to a healthy body weight for my height. Working on it. Very slow. 526 in the Green
    Day 27: Thurs, 1/21: 135.4 - Always happy to see a drop even if tiny. 368 in the Green
    Day 28: Fri, 1/22: 136.9 : - ( 472 in the Green
    Day 29: Sat, 1/23: 136.4 - 203 in the Green

    5th Week Goal Weight: 135.3
    5th Week Actual Weight: 136.4 - disappointed with this, but know that it is up to me.
    Excess Calories left over in the Green - 3812 - enough to lose 1 pound

    Day 30: Sun, 1/24: 138.1 - Argh. Wings last night must have been the culprit.
    Day 31: Mon, 1/25:
    Day 32: Tues, 1/26:

    Day/Weight/Comment
    01/21 …..205.4 ….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
    01/22 …..205.2 ….. I am inviting my friend over tonight (the one that always brings me high calorie foods without notice) for dinner. I am making low calorie / low carb shish-kabobs. This time it’s MY choice for the menu lol. My friend is a friend of 20 years. He is male and can eat things without gaining which just isn’t true for this female post-menopausal body! No matter how many times I tell him, he just doesn’t get it. Anyway, I hope to dip into the 204’s by tomorrow or the next day. Persisting……..

    01/23 …..206.2 ….. A wonderful low cal/carb dinner with my friend. Then, late night pop-tarts with milk. Just don’t do it folks!

    01/24 …..206.2 ….. Drats!

    01/25 …..xxxxx …..

    01/26 …..xxxxx …..

    01/27 …..xxxxx …..

    01/28 …..xxxxx …..

    01/29 …..xxxxx …..

    01/30 …..xxxxx …..

    01/31 …..xxxxx …..

    My Goal is to get my 10,000 steps in daily (like I used to!)

    82l57fj7vlae.png
    STEPS REPORTED ARE FROM DAY BEFORE

    01/22/21 10,238 steps.
    01/23/21 7229 steps. Busy with dinner guest. I made a nice low cal/low carb dinner but not much activity.

    @Lilylady3k I am noticing the pattern that when my meals are on target, I am STARVING at night. I've got to get back to the healthy snacking. I know what to do, I just have to do it! We can get to Onederland. I'll never give up and I'll never give in!

    @dawnbgethealthy - 4 falls ice skating this week might be better than sitting on the couch ... okay it definitely is but OUCH! Take care ... we break easily as we age.

    One fall ice skating, 3 falls walking on icy trails.
    I really need to find/get myself some cramp-ons or something!
    Thanks for the concern : - )

    Icy trails are dangerous ... I don't run across that much down here. But the same result when "slippery when wet". :) Take care of yourself! Do hiking sticks help? Cramp-ons ... do those clip to your boots?

    Ultimate Goal Weight: Not sure

    This is my 5th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    Day 1: 12/26: 137.7 - Extremely active day, but also ate quite a bit. 451 calories left over in the Green
    Day 2: 12/27: 137.1 - I have enough leftovers for a few days, stuffing and gravy is my weakness so I will load my plate with veggies and turkey and stretch out the badder stuff : - ) 561 in the Green
    Day 3: 12/28: 137.7 - I was awake throughout the night and weighed less just now, but am using my very early morning weight. 717 in the Green
    Day 4: 12/29: 137.2 - Back on track at least until NYE. 302 in the Green
    Day 5: 12/30: 137.5 - Hiccup yesterday, some sad news and went off a bit. 791 in the Green
    Day 6: 12/31: 138.3 - That is the highest that I have weighed in awhile. Not going to overdo it tonight, but I will have some Champagne and something delicious to eat. 384 in the Green
    Day 7: 01/01: 138.4 - I had Ribs, it might catch up more. I have had lots of activity, but also ate more than usual. 111 in the Green

    Day 11: Tues, 1/5: 135.4 - Many workouts yesterday, and back to healthier eating. A scale drop always motivates me to be "good". We all fight so hard for each pound, too easy to backslide and undo the hard work. 1354 in the Green
    Day 12: Wed, 1/6: 135.5 - Very long work day and a very late dinner. Burned lots of calories and didn't eat them back, hoping that shows up in a day or two. 1190 in the Green

    Week 4:

    Day 16: 1/10: 137.4 - Wow, almost back up to Day 1 weight for some reason. Hoping that this is just a fluctuation. I have been on track except for Friday (which obviously caught up to me just now), but even then I was under calorie goals due to activity. 831 in the Green
    Day 17: 1/11: 137.4 - Got in lots of activity yesterday because I was planning on a huge steak and prawns for dinner. This will fuel my body for days to come, but I want to get this number back down. 663 in the Green

    Day 25: Tues, 1/19: - 135.6 - Got in a few extra Fitness Marshall songs here and there 2 or 3 at a time throughout the day yesterday which added up to a nice calorie burn (and mood lifter) overall. 539 in the Green
    Day 26: Wed, 1/20: - 135.5 - I have moved all of my jobs from today to tomorrow. I am going to get out for a nice long walk/hike. Yesterday was incredibly windy with dust blowing everywhere when I tried to leave work for a small walk/break so I didn't spend any time outdoors. I had my 2 year physical early in the morning. Doc was pleased with my weight loss, but still needs me to lose more to bring my blood pressure further down and get me to a healthy body weight for my height. Working on it. Very slow. 526 in the Green
