    I am 51 year old 6'0" with a Thyroid issue, that I am on Meds for, and tore my Achilles in May. My weight constantly yoyo's and the up is more than the down. Heaviest I have ever been.

    I have been unable to do any cardio and the weight has continued to creep up. I also have a torn Meniscus but can still get around.

    Starting weight: 287.2 ( January 1, 2021)
    Goal weight: 195

    Current weight: 272.0 (-15.2)
    Total weight lost: 10.4 lbs

    01/15: 279.2 (-8)
    01/22: 274.2 (-5)
    01/29: 273.0 (-1.2)
    02/6: 276.8 (+3.8)
    2/12: 272.0 (-4.8)

    This weeks successes: was able to lift two days this week. Felt it in my right knee, so will likely not add any more than 2 days a week until the meniscus is repaired.

    This weeks challenges: Not getting enough protein. It is hard to get enough protein, even when adding a Meal Replacement shake and scoop of protein to my diet. I eat a lot of chicken and eggs. May need to increase the amount of fish I eat. 2 days this week: Salmon and shrimp.

    This week's successes: lost half a kilo!
    This week's challenges: Inflamed my chest muscles due to belly dancing so no dancing for me for until it heals.
    My stomach and my acid reflux are really giving me problems. So I have solved this by eating much less and eating blander food. It has helped a lot. Taking meds for chest pain. Still.. very happy with continuing loss.

    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    A pound a week seems reasonable
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.
    48 weeks till 2022 🎉

    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 Starting Weight: 245 (1/2/2019) BMI 43.4
    2020 Starting Weight: 235 (1/1/2020) BMI 41.6
    2021 Starting Weight: 212 (1/1/2021) BMI 37.6
    Goal for 2021: <200 BMI 35 (Dr set target before next physical)
    Stretch Goal for 2021: <170 (Overweight instead of obese)
    Current weight: 209.3 BMI 37
    2021 weight loss: 2.7
    Total weight lost: 35.7

    Past week's successes: Stuck with my Feb challenge … no sugar free dark chocolate candies! But then I ate king cake & macaroons, fried chicken, fast food hamburger & fries 2x, etc etc etc … The point is I ate a lot and it shows on the scale. Also less exercise so the outcome was predictable.
    This week's challenges: Need to get back into an exercise routing of walking, biking and planks even though we have snow on the ground (unusual in the south) and clean up my act on the food front. DON’T eat out of boredom

    Challenges: Well a pretty big one this week I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m really angry that I’m finally taking care of myself and my body and my reward is cancer! Of course I know that’s not true but I’m furious. Not sure yet what the treatment plan will be but scared and worried about how it will derail my progress to get healthy.

    Success: i am still hiking 5 miles a day so I guess cancer is holding me back yet:)

    start brewing your own essiac tea, and drink it daily. (you can buy the herbs in a powder form, I don't agree with the pre ready made tea in tea bags)
    I drink it ever since I was diagnosed with "pre cancer" I buy it off ebay, as its the same formula as rene caisse used.
