    Back to accountability. I did not journal my food over the last 3 days ... only my alcohol consumption. Weight is up ... no wonder! No walking, little diet and lots of stress. Time to turn it back around.

    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 207.1 Dancing, 4 glasses of wine. DD’s 1 year anniversary celebration at The Grove in Houston!
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 206.8 Walked 1.2 + 1.4 miles, 2 glasses wine. All the company at my house has left, my DD & her husband are on their honeymoon, my mom is around for a couple more days for doctors’ appts, and I’m caring for DD’s 2 golden doodles … so lots of walking planned this week as well as running mom around and gardening! Today back to losing the pounds … no more excuses.

    I let things get out of hand yesterday eating wise and just kind of threw in the towel. Back to being responsible!

After dropping off DD’s dogs DH and I went out for dinner Ragin Cajun … yummy fried shrimp but switched the french fries out for grilled veggies. I avoided eating what DH & I usually get shrimp poboy and shrimp & crab gumbo which both of those are loaded with carbs.

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds
    UGW 110-115

    This is my 6th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.0
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days. Round 5 loss 4.6.
    23.9 pound loss over 500 days.
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    I keep track of calories left over at the end of each day, in the Green on the MFP tracker. My aim is 500+ average calories in the Green each day (deficit) - this would lead to a 5lb loss over 100 days.
    Day 1: Mon, 4/5: 133.1 - I actually dnw, I am using my EW from the last round. 1049 in the Green
    Day 2: Tues, 4/6: 134.3 - Ouch. 607 in the Green
    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 133.7 - Completely on track. I am starting to wonder if the daily skating for 2 weeks developed me some heavier quads and glutes. 844 in the Green
    Day 4: Thurs, 4/8: 132.6 - Saw 131.XX many times in the last 100, trying to get there and beyond. 536 in the Green
    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 133.2 - Extremely early weigh-in, 3am. My schedule is out of wack right now. 516 in the Green
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 132.1 - Do we have only 6 days in this first week? 439 in the Green


    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 133.8 - Hoping that this is just some sort of weird fluctuation. 565 in the Green
    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 132.4 - Better. 846 in the Green
    Day 9: Tues, 4/13: 133.7 - Trying not to let this fluctuation upset me. eating and exercise were on point. I am really off of my clock this week adding an evening job into my mix. 765 in the Green
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 133.3 - I had hoped to have a cushion so that I could have Ribs later this week. After juggling my bunch of jobs, getting home late and eating very late...I may have to delay my Ribs feast. Keeping my workouts up, but only little bits at a time this week. 900 in the Green
    Day 11: Thurs, 4/15:: 132.1 - Good, back to last week's EW. 822 in the Green
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 131.5 - Lowest so far on this journey, fluctuations may happen, but touching it for the first time feels great. 7 in the Green
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 133.3 - Delicious Ribs last night. Honey Garlic variety this time. Kind of worth the almost 2 pound gain, and expected. I will work it off over the next week. I will have Ribs again in the month of May : - ) Hours of yard work/gardening on the schedule for today on top of Fitness Marshall workouts throughout the day. 865 in the Green



    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 133.1 - Hoping to work the Ribs off over the next few days. I used to have them each week instead of each month. I see why it was impossible for me to take weight off back then. Once per month is enough : - ) 698 in the Green
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 134.2 : - ( 689 in the Green
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 133.0 - Better, but 16 days in and only 0.1 under my start weight. Sticking with it. 899 in the Green
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 132.9 - I have been battling a sore shoulder for 2 weeks, still working out, but modifying. 1187 in the Green
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 133.1. I am going to give myself a break after work tonight for the next 2 days and indulge slightly. I will just have to deal with the consequences. I have been going at breakneck pace this week on the work front. 283 in the Green
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 132.4 - Surprising, because I had appies for dinner: spinach artichoke bites, boneless dry garlic pork, and the like. Calories in and out were on point though. Veered away from my usual chicken breast with 4 veggies and a bit of rice. 893 in the Green
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 133.5 - I repeated the eating behaviour, so expected this. I needed a break and my weight wasn't changing anyway. Meal prepping today, my day off. 646 in the Green



    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 134.3 - Not very happy with this number. 528 in the Green
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26:133.5 - I worked a split shift yesterday, so ate later than I like to do. 842 in the Green
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 132.7 - Hopefully adapting to my newest work schedule and can begin to drop some more weight again. 986 in the Green
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 131.9 - That was really nice to see this morning. 867 in the green
    Day 25: Thurs, 4/29: 132.2 - Planning on having something a bit more indulgent tonight after work. 570 in the Green
    Day 26: Fri, 4/30: 131.8 - Better. I actually have 2 days off this week, so I will get some meal prep in and lots of outdoor activity. 290 in the Green
    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 131.6 - Wasn't really that "good" yesterday, but did keep within my calories 1133 in the Green

    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 133.0 - Really? Sticking with it even though I am pretty much back up to my start weight today. 812 in the Green
    Day 29: Mon, 5/3: 132.2 - Later dinner because of a split shift yesterday, but back to normal for the rest of the week. 428 in the Green
    Day 30: Tues, 5/4: 132.4 - Planning to stay "good" until at least Thursday. I know that it takes awhile for that "good" lifestyle to show up on the scale. 123 in the Green
    Day 31: Wed, 5/5: 132.8 - Poor food choices yesterday. Stayed within calories, but barely. 861 in the Green
    Day 32: Thurs, 5/6: 132.0 - That is better. 496 in the Green
    Day 33: Fri, 5/7: 131.3 - Another weird food choice day. I stayed within calories. Vaccine day 102 in the Green

    Day 35: Sun, 5/9: 134.3 - Way too high, hoping it is just a fluke. 811 in the Green
    Day 36: Mon, 5/10: 133.2 - Busy week, going to make sure to stay on track. 691 in the Green
    Day 37: Tues, 5/11: 133.8 - Still putting in the effort, but disappointed with the scale. 453 in the Green
    Day 38: Wed, 5/12: 133.4 - Kind of gave up a little last night, poor food choices even though still within calories. I need to make sure that nutrition is the most important thing. 453 in the Green
    Day 39: Thurs, 5/13: 133.2 - Almost back to my start weight of 39 days ago. I have hit those 131s a few times and was hopeful. 674 in the Green
    Day 40: Fri, 5/14: 131.3 - I was planning my monthly dose of Ribs tonight, I may postpone that, we'll see. 168 in the Green
    Day 41: Sat, 5/15: 132.1 - Down one pound in 41 days 1150 in the Green

    Day 43: Mon, 5/17: 132.8 - Not sure why the gain, I have been on point. The next 3 weeks will be challenging adding in this extra training for an additional job. 9-5 today and then will pretty much need to eat and go straight to bed for my 2:30 alarm clock tomorrow. 434 in the Green
    Day 44: Tues, 5/18: 133.1 - 2:30am weigh in. Maybe on the weekend I will weigh way less : - ) 938 in the Green
    Day 45: Wed, 5/19: 131.9 - Happy to see this number. I am awake a bit longer getting up so early for the newest job, but somehow didn't eat more. 619 in th4e Green
    Day 46: Thurs, 5/20: 132.7 - Needing a good BM, the new schedule is wreaking a bit of havoc with my guts. I have never had an issue in this area before. 929 in the Green
    Day 47: Fri, 5/21: 130.1 - New low, yay! I didn't keep that extra job that had me waking up (and weighing) at 2:30am. Weighed at 7:30 this morning so got these great results. I expect it will jump around, as it does. Plus, I haven't had my Ribs yet this month. 748 in the RED
    Day 48: Sat, 5/22: 132.0 - My monthly Ribs last night. Kind of worth the gain, delicious. 731 in the Green

    Day 49: Sun, 5/23: 131.9 - A much more "normal" schedule heading into this week. 803 in the Green
    Day 50: Mon, 5/24: 130.2 - Very happy to see this number, I have been jumping around this whole 100 so far. Maybe starting to lose a bit finally. 846 in the Green
    Day 51: Tues, 5/25: 131.6 - No reason for the gain, so not sweating it. 306 in the Green
    Day 52: Wed, 5/26: 131.1 - Beginning split shifts for the rest of the week, modification of eating times and choices will have to happen. 674 in the Green

    Day 54: Fri, 5/28: 133.5 - Argh 387 in the Green
    Day 55: Sat, 5/29: 133.8 - Well, the week's weight numbers were good until the last couple. Working so much and not finding time for more activity. 623 in the Green

    Day 56: Sun, 5/30: 132.9 - It has been a challenge for me recently with a hectic schedule. This will be for at least 1 more month, I will have to figure out my nutrition. 749 in the Green

    Day 59: Wed, 6/2: 132.3 - Astounding amount of calories burned yesterday during work breaks that added up. Pre-logging and prepping food because I am time crunched. 757 in the Green
    Day 60: Thurs, 6/3: 130.9 - Surprised (in a happy way) to see this number once again. We broke heat records here yesterday, maybe it was sweat lol. 855 in the Green

    Day 71: Mon, 6/14: 132.9 - No reason for a gain, so hoping to see a better result on the scale tomorrow. 483 in the Green
    Day 72: Tues, 6/15: 133.3 - Above my start weight! I quite expected a drop this morning. Taking it in stride, I turned that frown upside down by having my coffee (and blueberries) out on my covered front porch watching a thunderstorm : - ) 264 in the Green
    Day 73: Wed, 6/16: 133.0 - Very disheartened to be into these 133s again. Not even sure why. I will stick with the plan. I was looking forward to my monthly Ribs for Saturday or Sunday, but I may have to forego them this month. 1083 in the Green
    Day 74: Thurs, 6/17: 132.4 - Ended up burning a whopping amount of calories yesterday between various things. Still higher than I want to be, but glad to not be in the 133s this morning! 811 in the Green
    Day 75: Fri, 6/18: 131.9 - Large calorie burn again. I was so tired that I only ate 1/2 of my dinner. Now I have dinner already made for tonight : - ) (Ground chicken pesto burger on Brioche, delicious) 810 in the Green
    Day 76: Sat, 6/19: 131.6 - Still haven't hit that 2 pound loss yet, 24 days left of this 100, and i certainly had hoped to lose more than 2! Really wanting Ribs or some other indulgence, but I don't want to derail.

    11th Week Goal Weight: - 131.1 Running goal until I hit it
    11th Week Actual Weight: 131.6 - Same as week 4
    Excess calories left over in the Green on the tracker (deficit): I will add this up after today's numbers

    @deepwoodslady

    What a beautiful picture, thanks for posting that.

    1400 calories is a nice number.
    I personally range around quite a bit but probably average somewhere in that range.
    I think that I like volume of food, but have settled on some filling things that I eat almost every day, like Brussels Sprouts lol. I have reduced my butter consumption from 2tblsp to 1/4 tblsp on my Brocolli. I now use half fat Hellman's (on my Brussels Sprouts) and use Sour Cream in place of heavy cream and on my Yam/rice combo that I eat with dinner most days. Surprisingly low in calorie sour cream!
    As you know, I am about burning calories so that I can eat more : - )

    You are doing so great!!

    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 149.2
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 149.8 weighed earlier than usual so could have been lower
    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 152 Had bad day yesterday. Happens every time I lose weight – I start off great then regress.
    Week 1 GAIN: +3.2

    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 151

    April Loss: -5.8

    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 144.6
    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 149 This is simply not possible. I think yesterday’s weight may have been too low, because this huge gain cannot be right. I did eat out last night but I was reasonable. This has to be some major water retention.
    Week 4 Loss: +2

    Day 29: Mon, 5/3: 147.2
    Day 30: Tue, 5/4: 146.2

    Day 40: Fri, 5/14: 144
    Day 41: Sat, 5/15: 144.8 Possible water retention because I was well under my calories yesterday and had over 10K steps.
    Day 42: Sun, 5/16: 148.8
    Week 6 Loss: -0.2

    Day 43: Mon, 5/17: 149.6 Had a very indulgent off-plan weekend.

    Day 49: Sun, 5/23: 143.6
    Week 7 Loss: -0.4 (from lowest weight last week)

    Day 50: Mon, 5/24: 143.8
    Day 51: Tue, 5/25: 143.4
    Day 52: Wed, 5/26: 144 Had Mexican food last night, just chicken tacos, tortilla chips, refried bean dip and salsa. Didn't eat to the point of feeling full, and was within calories (including exercise) if I input the correct info. The restaurant didn't have nutrition info available, so I used info in MFP food database. Suspect this bump up is sodium so I'll be hitting the H2O hard today. My goal is to be 142.x Friday.
    Day 53: Thu, 5/27: 143.4
    Day 54: Fri, 5/28: 143.4
    Day 55: Sat, 5/29: 145.8 Lazy and indulgent yesterday

    Day 61: Fri, 6/4: 141.2

    Day 72: 144.8 Had a rough weekend, and was too scared to get on the scale lol! They say eventually old habits die off. Not true for me; they are always lurking just below the surface.

    Day 72 – 06/15 …..202.0……
    Day 73 – 06/16 …..203.4…… A longer day of travel than expected. Two meals out. I only ate about 75% of each meal but the damage is done. Today will be a compensation day. I hope to have fewer of those in the coming weeks.
    Day 74 – 06/17 …..202.8…… Great choices yesterday until I got too hungry last night. I think I kept my calories a bit too low during the day. After a mini-binge offset by some extra movement in the form of dancing, I came out on top but it was a close call. Down 0.6 today. Trying for a better day again today minus the bad late-night snack.
    Day 75 – 06/18 …..203.0…… A normal fluctuation that I’m okay with. Diet was on target yesterday. Not a lot of steps or activity due to a lot of car riding and running local errands. No workers were here so I was able to leave and get some business done. I hope to take some short walks today and fit in a bit of dancing. Some nice interval exercise is on the horizon for sure!
    Day 76 – 06/19 …..202.6…… don’tcha just hate how the weight can go up so quickly overnight (June 16th) but takes SO….MANY….DAYS to go down? Keeping the faith here and watching my p’s and q’s. My daughter is still living here (I think). Her stuff is still here but she has been back at home the last couple of nights. She will probably be gone tonight too. It is easier to plan my meals and stick to my guns when my routine is normal, for sure. Therefore, today should be another good day. I’m not gonna lie, last night was a LIVING NIGHTMARE . I ate about 1390 calories, got in 8000 steps (2000 short of goal). However, I was starving! I mean, it felt like I was shriveling away to INVISIBLE. No glucose drop (that was good) just STARVATION. I sipped my water, ate a little lunch style cuplet of applesauce and made my way through it, but it wasn’t easy. Hoping for a better day today.

    @dawnbgethealthy

    I think those substitutions can really add up to saved calories. I've got to move more! Exercising and movement does allow for a little more play in the diet as long as we keep it healthy.

    Back to accountability. I did not journal my food over the last 3 days ... only my alcohol consumption. Weight is up ... no wonder! No walking, little diet and lots of stress. Time to turn it back around.

All the company at my house has left, my DD & her husband are on their honeymoon, my mom is around for a couple more days for doctors’ appts, and I’m caring for DD’s 2 golden doodles … so lots of walking planned this week as well as running mom around and gardening!

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds
    UGW 110-115

    This is my 6th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.0
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days. Round 5 loss 4.6.
    23.9 pound loss over 500 days.
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    I keep track of calories left over at the end of each day, in the Green on the MFP tracker. My aim is 500+ average calories in the Green each day (deficit) - this would lead to a 5lb loss over 100 days.

    Day 1: Mon, 4/5: 133.1 - I actually dnw, I am using my EW from the last round. 1049 in the Green
    Day 2: Tues, 4/6: 134.3 - Ouch. 607 in the Green
    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 133.7 - Completely on track. I am starting to wonder if the daily skating for 2 weeks developed me some heavier quads and glutes. 844 in the Green
    Day 4: Thurs, 4/8: 132.6 - Saw 131.XX many times in the last 100, trying to get there and beyond. 536 in the Green
    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 133.2 - Extremely early weigh-in, 3am. My schedule is out of wack right now. 516 in the Green
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 132.1 - Do we have only 6 days in this first week? 439 in the Green


    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 133.8 - Hoping that this is just some sort of weird fluctuation. 565 in the Green
    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 132.4 - Better. 846 in the Green
    Day 9: Tues, 4/13: 133.7 - Trying not to let this fluctuation upset me. eating and exercise were on point. I am really off of my clock this week adding an evening job into my mix. 765 in the Green
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 133.3 - I had hoped to have a cushion so that I could have Ribs later this week. After juggling my bunch of jobs, getting home late and eating very late...I may have to delay my Ribs feast. Keeping my workouts up, but only little bits at a time this week. 900 in the Green
    Day 11: Thurs, 4/15:: 132.1 - Good, back to last week's EW. 822 in the Green
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 131.5 - Lowest so far on this journey, fluctuations may happen, but touching it for the first time feels great. 7 in the Green
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 133.3 - Delicious Ribs last night. Honey Garlic variety this time. Kind of worth the almost 2 pound gain, and expected. I will work it off over the next week. I will have Ribs again in the month of May : - ) Hours of yard work/gardening on the schedule for today on top of Fitness Marshall workouts throughout the day. 865 in the Green



    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 133.1 - Hoping to work the Ribs off over the next few days. I used to have them each week instead of each month. I see why it was impossible for me to take weight off back then. Once per month is enough : - ) 698 in the Green
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 134.2 : - ( 689 in the Green
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 133.0 - Better, but 16 days in and only 0.1 under my start weight. Sticking with it. 899 in the Green
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 132.9 - I have been battling a sore shoulder for 2 weeks, still working out, but modifying. 1187 in the Green
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 133.1. I am going to give myself a break after work tonight for the next 2 days and indulge slightly. I will just have to deal with the consequences. I have been going at breakneck pace this week on the work front. 283 in the Green
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 132.4 - Surprising, because I had appies for dinner: spinach artichoke bites, boneless dry garlic pork, and the like. Calories in and out were on point though. Veered away from my usual chicken breast with 4 veggies and a bit of rice. 893 in the Green
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 133.5 - I repeated the eating behaviour, so expected this. I needed a break and my weight wasn't changing anyway. Meal prepping today, my day off. 646 in the Green



    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 134.3 - Not very happy with this number. 528 in the Green
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26:133.5 - I worked a split shift yesterday, so ate later than I like to do. 842 in the Green
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 132.7 - Hopefully adapting to my newest work schedule and can begin to drop some more weight again. 986 in the Green
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 131.9 - That was really nice to see this morning. 867 in the green
    Day 25: Thurs, 4/29: 132.2 - Planning on having something a bit more indulgent tonight after work. 570 in the Green
    Day 26: Fri, 4/30: 131.8 - Better. I actually have 2 days off this week, so I will get some meal prep in and lots of outdoor activity. 290 in the Green
    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 131.6 - Wasn't really that "good" yesterday, but did keep within my calories 1133 in the Green

    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 133.0 - Really? Sticking with it even though I am pretty much back up to my start weight today. 812 in the Green
    Day 29: Mon, 5/3: 132.2 - Later dinner because of a split shift yesterday, but back to normal for the rest of the week. 428 in the Green
    Day 30: Tues, 5/4: 132.4 - Planning to stay "good" until at least Thursday. I know that it takes awhile for that "good" lifestyle to show up on the scale. 123 in the Green
    Day 31: Wed, 5/5: 132.8 - Poor food choices yesterday. Stayed within calories, but barely. 861 in the Green
    Day 32: Thurs, 5/6: 132.0 - That is better. 496 in the Green
    Day 33: Fri, 5/7: 131.3 - Another weird food choice day. I stayed within calories. Vaccine day 102 in the Green
    Day 34: Sat, 5/8: 133.8 - Ouch. I will try to get lots of activity in today. 603 in the Green

    Day 35: Sun, 5/9: 134.3 - Way too high, hoping it is just a fluke. 811 in the Green
    Day 36: Mon, 5/10: 133.2 - Busy week, going to make sure to stay on track. 691 in the Green
    Day 37: Tues, 5/11: 133.8 - Still putting in the effort, but disappointed with the scale. 453 in the Green
    Day 38: Wed, 5/12: 133.4 - Kind of gave up a little last night, poor food choices even though still within calories. I need to make sure that nutrition is the most important thing. 453 in the Green
    Day 39: Thurs, 5/13: 133.2 - Almost back to my start weight of 39 days ago. I have hit those 131s a few times and was hopeful. 674 in the Green
    Day 40: Fri, 5/14: 131.3 - I was planning my monthly dose of Ribs tonight, I may postpone that, we'll see. 168 in the Green
    Day 41: Sat, 5/15: 132.1 - Down one pound in 41 days 1150 in the Green

    Day 43: Mon, 5/17: 132.8 - Not sure why the gain, I have been on point. The next 3 weeks will be challenging adding in this extra training for an additional job. 9-5 today and then will pretty much need to eat and go straight to bed for my 2:30 alarm clock tomorrow. 434 in the Green
    Day 44: Tues, 5/18: 133.1 - 2:30am weigh in. Maybe on the weekend I will weigh way less : - ) 938 in the Green
    Day 45: Wed, 5/19: 131.9 - Happy to see this number. I am awake a bit longer getting up so early for the newest job, but somehow didn't eat more. 619 in th4e Green
    Day 46: Thurs, 5/20: 132.7 - Needing a good BM, the new schedule is wreaking a bit of havoc with my guts. I have never had an issue in this area before. 929 in the Green
    Day 47: Fri, 5/21: 130.1 - New low, yay! I didn't keep that extra job that had me waking up (and weighing) at 2:30am. Weighed at 7:30 this morning so got these great results. I expect it will jump around, as it does. Plus, I haven't had my Ribs yet this month. 748 in the RED
    Day 48: Sat, 5/22: 132.0 - My monthly Ribs last night. Kind of worth the gain, delicious. 731 in the Green

    Day 49: Sun, 5/23: 131.9 - A much more "normal" schedule heading into this week. 803 in the Green
    Day 50: Mon, 5/24: 130.2 - Very happy to see this number, I have been jumping around this whole 100 so far. Maybe starting to lose a bit finally. 846 in the Green
    Day 51: Tues, 5/25: 131.6 - No reason for the gain, so not sweating it. 306 in the Green
    Day 52: Wed, 5/26: 131.1 - Beginning split shifts for the rest of the week, modification of eating times and choices will have to happen. 674 in the Green

    Day 54: Fri, 5/28: 133.5 - Argh 387 in the Green
    Day 55: Sat, 5/29: 133.8 - Well, the week's weight numbers were good until the last couple. Working so much and not finding time for more activity. 623 in the Green

    Day 56: Sun, 5/30: 132.9 - It has been a challenge for me recently with a hectic schedule. This will be for at least 1 more month, I will have to figure out my nutrition. 749 in the Green

    Day 59: Wed, 6/2: 132.3 - Astounding amount of calories burned yesterday during work breaks that added up. Pre-logging and prepping food because I am time crunched. 757 in the Green
    Day 60: Thurs, 6/3: 130.9 - Surprised (in a happy way) to see this number once again. We broke heat records here yesterday, maybe it was sweat lol. 855 in the Green

    Day 75: Fri, 6/18: 131.9 - Large calorie burn again. I was so tired that I only ate 1/2 of my dinner. Now I have dinner already made for tonight : - ) (Ground chicken pesto burger on Brioche, delicious) 810 in the Green
    Day 76: Sat, 6/19: 131.6 - Still haven't hit that 2 pound loss yet, 24 days left of this 100, and i certainly had hoped to lose more than 2! Really wanting Ribs or some other indulgence, but I don't want to derail. 955 in the Green

    11th Week Goal Weight: - 131.1 Running goal until I hit it
    11th Week Actual Weight: 131.6 - Same as week 4
    Excess calories left over in the Green on the tracker (deficit): 5089 - more than enough to lose a pound.

    Day 77: Sun, 6/20: 131.2 - Very very late dinner because I worked late (and a lot) yesterday, and will be working late again today. I will be having the other half of my dinner from last night, ground chicken pesto burger on Brioche with potato patties.
    Day 78: Mon, 6/21:

    Day 80: Wed, 6/23:

    Day 82: Fri, 6/25:
    Day 83: Sat, 6/26:

    12th Week Goal Weight: - 131.1 Running goal until I hit it - It would represent a 2 pound loss since the beginning of this 100
    12th Week Actual Weight:
    Excess calories left over in the Green on the tracker (deficit):

    Start weight April 05.21: 133.1
    Goal weight 123.1 (I have yet to reach a 10 pound loss in this 100 before, but aiming for it anyway)

    @dawnbgethealthy

    I think those substitutions can really add up to saved calories. I've got to move more! Exercising and movement does allow for a little more play in the diet as long as we keep it healthy.

    Yes, and finding filling nutritious satisfying foods that we enjoy.
    I took a waitress job a couple of months ago, so am getting extra steps there for sure. Down to 3 jobs from 6, and soon (once the Census is complete) I will be down to 2 jobs. My garden is so behind - lots of calories burned when I have time for that too. Of course I don't garden expressly to burn calories, I grow mostly food and in the fall put a bunch up to eat over the winter. I really do love to garden. And like you I enjoy the dance, again, not expressly for burning calories - I feel that it sets my tone for the day, is great for my emotional and mental health, gives me more energy, and loosens/stretches my joints and muscles.

    You are doing so great my friend, crushing it!

    Day 71 – 06/14 …..201.8……
    Day 72 – 06/15 …..202.0……
    Day 73 – 06/16 …..203.4…… A longer day of travel than expected. Two meals out. I only ate about 75% of each meal but the damage is done. Today will be a compensation day. I hope to have fewer of those in the coming weeks.
    Day 74 – 06/17 …..202.8…… Great choices yesterday until I got too hungry last night. I think I kept my calories a bit too low during the day. After a mini-binge offset by some extra movement in the form of dancing, I came out on top but it was a close call. Down 0.6 today. Trying for a better day again today minus the bad late-night snack.
    Day 75 – 06/18 …..203.0…… A normal fluctuation that I’m okay with. Diet was on target yesterday. Not a lot of steps or activity due to a lot of car riding and running local errands. No workers were here so I was able to leave and get some business done. I hope to take some short walks today and fit in a bit of dancing. Some nice interval exercise is on the horizon for sure!
    Day 76 – 06/19 …..202.6…… don’tcha just hate how the weight can go up so quickly overnight (June 16th) but takes SO….MANY….DAYS to go down? Keeping the faith here and watching my p’s and q’s. My daughter is still living here (I think). Her stuff is still here but she has been back at home the last couple of nights. She will probably be gone tonight too. It is easier to plan my meals and stick to my guns when my routine is normal, for sure. Therefore, today should be another good day. I’m not gonna lie, last night was a LIVING NIGHTMARE . I ate about 1390 calories, got in 8000 steps (2000 short of goal). However, I was starving! I mean, it felt like I was shriveling away to INVISIBLE. No glucose drop (that was good) just STARVATION. I sipped my water, ate a little lunch style cuplet of applesauce and made my way through it, but it wasn’t easy. Hoping for a better day today.
    Day 77 – 06/20 …..200.2…… Thought I was still asleep and dreaming when I saw the scale! I was up all night with TMI so I’m hoping this is not just dehydration, but rather a Whoosh that I’ve been hoping for. Calories yesterday at 1210 with many better choices to sustain me through the night. I felt very much in control. When I reach 197.8 I will feel firmly placed in Onederland since I can gain 2 pounds overnight easily just with a partial take-out meal. I’m having faith that the changes are adding up and paying the fiddler for my past transgressions.

    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 152 Had bad day yesterday. Happens every time I lose weight – I start off great then regress.

    April Loss: -5.8

    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 144.6
    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 149 This is simply not possible. I think yesterday’s weight may have been too low, because this huge gain cannot be right. I did eat out last night but I was reasonable. This has to be some major water retention.
    Week 4 Loss: +2

    Day 29: Mon, 5/3: 147.2
    Day 30: Tue, 5/4: 146.2

    Day 50: Mon, 5/24: 143.8
    Day 51: Tue, 5/25: 143.4
    Day 52: Wed, 5/26: 144 Had Mexican food last night, just chicken tacos, tortilla chips, refried bean dip and salsa. Didn't eat to the point of feeling full, and was within calories (including exercise) if I input the correct info. The restaurant didn't have nutrition info available, so I used info in MFP food database. Suspect this bump up is sodium so I'll be hitting the H2O hard today. My goal is to be 142.x Friday.

    Day 63: Sun, 6/6: 146.2 Attended my goddaughter's graduation party where there was barbeque, crawfish, and a chocolate fountain. Weight is up today, but I don't care.

    Thanks @Miyoka_Tata :)
    I am Dawn. 60, 5'2
    Began MFP Oct 28.18 at 191 pounds
    UGW 110-115

    This is my 6th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.0
    19.3 total loss over 4 rounds, 400 days. Round 5 loss 4.6.
    23.9 pound loss over 500 days.
    I always reach for a 10 pound loss each 100 even though that hasn't happened.
    I keep track of calories left over at the end of each day, in the Green on the MFP tracker. My aim is 500+ average calories in the Green each day (deficit) - this would lead to a 5lb loss over 100 days.

    Day 1: Mon, 4/5: 133.1 - I actually dnw, I am using my EW from the last round. 1049 in the Green
    Day 2: Tues, 4/6: 134.3 - Ouch. 607 in the Green
    Day 3: Wed, 4/7: 133.7 - Completely on track. I am starting to wonder if the daily skating for 2 weeks developed me some heavier quads and glutes. 844 in the Green
    Day 4: Thurs, 4/8: 132.6 - Saw 131.XX many times in the last 100, trying to get there and beyond. 536 in the Green
    Day 5: Fri, 4/9: 133.2 - Extremely early weigh-in, 3am. My schedule is out of wack right now. 516 in the Green
    Day 6: Sat, 4/10: 132.1 - Do we have only 6 days in this first week? 439 in the Green


    Day 7: Sun, 4/11: 133.8 - Hoping that this is just some sort of weird fluctuation. 565 in the Green
    Day 8: Mon, 4/12: 132.4 - Better. 846 in the Green
    Day 9: Tues, 4/13: 133.7 - Trying not to let this fluctuation upset me. eating and exercise were on point. I am really off of my clock this week adding an evening job into my mix. 765 in the Green
    Day 10: Wed, 4/14: 133.3 - I had hoped to have a cushion so that I could have Ribs later this week. After juggling my bunch of jobs, getting home late and eating very late...I may have to delay my Ribs feast. Keeping my workouts up, but only little bits at a time this week. 900 in the Green
    Day 11: Thurs, 4/15:: 132.1 - Good, back to last week's EW. 822 in the Green
    Day 12: Fri, 4/16: 131.5 - Lowest so far on this journey, fluctuations may happen, but touching it for the first time feels great. 7 in the Green
    Day 13: Sat, 4/17: 133.3 - Delicious Ribs last night. Honey Garlic variety this time. Kind of worth the almost 2 pound gain, and expected. I will work it off over the next week. I will have Ribs again in the month of May : - ) Hours of yard work/gardening on the schedule for today on top of Fitness Marshall workouts throughout the day. 865 in the Green



    Day 14: Sun, 4/18: 133.1 - Hoping to work the Ribs off over the next few days. I used to have them each week instead of each month. I see why it was impossible for me to take weight off back then. Once per month is enough : - ) 698 in the Green
    Day 15: Mon, 4/19: 134.2 : - ( 689 in the Green
    Day 16: Tues, 4/20: 133.0 - Better, but 16 days in and only 0.1 under my start weight. Sticking with it. 899 in the Green
    Day 17: Wed, 4/21: 132.9 - I have been battling a sore shoulder for 2 weeks, still working out, but modifying. 1187 in the Green
    Day 18: Thurs, 4/22: 133.1. I am going to give myself a break after work tonight for the next 2 days and indulge slightly. I will just have to deal with the consequences. I have been going at breakneck pace this week on the work front. 283 in the Green
    Day 19: Fri, 4/23: 132.4 - Surprising, because I had appies for dinner: spinach artichoke bites, boneless dry garlic pork, and the like. Calories in and out were on point though. Veered away from my usual chicken breast with 4 veggies and a bit of rice. 893 in the Green
    Day 20: Sat, 4/24: 133.5 - I repeated the eating behaviour, so expected this. I needed a break and my weight wasn't changing anyway. Meal prepping today, my day off. 646 in the Green



    Day 21: Sun, 4/25: 134.3 - Not very happy with this number. 528 in the Green
    Day 22: Mon, 4/26:133.5 - I worked a split shift yesterday, so ate later than I like to do. 842 in the Green
    Day 23: Tues, 4/27: 132.7 - Hopefully adapting to my newest work schedule and can begin to drop some more weight again. 986 in the Green
    Day 24: Wed, 4/28: 131.9 - That was really nice to see this morning. 867 in the green
    Day 25: Thurs, 4/29: 132.2 - Planning on having something a bit more indulgent tonight after work. 570 in the Green
    Day 26: Fri, 4/30: 131.8 - Better. I actually have 2 days off this week, so I will get some meal prep in and lots of outdoor activity. 290 in the Green
    Day 27: Sat, 5/1: 131.6 - Wasn't really that "good" yesterday, but did keep within my calories 1133 in the Green

    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 133.0 - Really? Sticking with it even though I am pretty much back up to my start weight today. 812 in the Green
    Day 29: Mon, 5/3: 132.2 - Later dinner because of a split shift yesterday, but back to normal for the rest of the week. 428 in the Green
    Day 30: Tues, 5/4: 132.4 - Planning to stay "good" until at least Thursday. I know that it takes awhile for that "good" lifestyle to show up on the scale. 123 in the Green
    Day 31: Wed, 5/5: 132.8 - Poor food choices yesterday. Stayed within calories, but barely. 861 in the Green
    Day 32: Thurs, 5/6: 132.0 - That is better. 496 in the Green
    Day 33: Fri, 5/7: 131.3 - Another weird food choice day. I stayed within calories. Vaccine day 102 in the Green
    Day 34: Sat, 5/8: 133.8 - Ouch. I will try to get lots of activity in today. 603 in the Green

    Day 35: Sun, 5/9: 134.3 - Way too high, hoping it is just a fluke. 811 in the Green
    Day 36: Mon, 5/10: 133.2 - Busy week, going to make sure to stay on track. 691 in the Green
    Day 37: Tues, 5/11: 133.8 - Still putting in the effort, but disappointed with the scale. 453 in the Green
    Day 38: Wed, 5/12: 133.4 - Kind of gave up a little last night, poor food choices even though still within calories. I need to make sure that nutrition is the most important thing. 453 in the Green
    Day 39: Thurs, 5/13: 133.2 - Almost back to my start weight of 39 days ago. I have hit those 131s a few times and was hopeful. 674 in the Green
    Day 40: Fri, 5/14: 131.3 - I was planning my monthly dose of Ribs tonight, I may postpone that, we'll see. 168 in the Green
    Day 41: Sat, 5/15: 132.1 - Down one pound in 41 days 1150 in the Green

    Day 42: Sun, 5/16: 132.1 - Heading into a very busy week with a new schedule (up at 2:30am) so focusing on nutrition. 739 in the Green
    Day 43: Mon, 5/17: 132.8 - Not sure why the gain, I have been on point. The next 3 weeks will be challenging adding in this extra training for an additional job. 9-5 today and then will pretty much need to eat and go straight to bed for my 2:30 alarm clock tomorrow. 434 in the Green
    Day 44: Tues, 5/18: 133.1 - 2:30am weigh in. Maybe on the weekend I will weigh way less : - ) 938 in the Green
    Day 45: Wed, 5/19: 131.9 - Happy to see this number. I am awake a bit longer getting up so early for the newest job, but somehow didn't eat more. 619 in th4e Green
    Day 46: Thurs, 5/20: 132.7 - Needing a good BM, the new schedule is wreaking a bit of havoc with my guts. I have never had an issue in this area before. 929 in the Green
    Day 47: Fri, 5/21: 130.1 - New low, yay! I didn't keep that extra job that had me waking up (and weighing) at 2:30am. Weighed at 7:30 this morning so got these great results. I expect it will jump around, as it does. Plus, I haven't had my Ribs yet this month. 748 in the RED
    Day 48: Sat, 5/22: 132.0 - My monthly Ribs last night. Kind of worth the gain, delicious. 731 in the Green

    Day 49: Sun, 5/23: 131.9 - A much more "normal" schedule heading into this week. 803 in the Green
    Day 50: Mon, 5/24: 130.2 - Very happy to see this number, I have been jumping around this whole 100 so far. Maybe starting to lose a bit finally. 846 in the Green
    Day 51: Tues, 5/25: 131.6 - No reason for the gain, so not sweating it. 306 in the Green
    Day 52: Wed, 5/26: 131.1 - Beginning split shifts for the rest of the week, modification of eating times and choices will have to happen. 674 in the Green
    Day 53: Thurs, 5/27: 131.9 - Worked a split yesterday, so a late dinner. 97 in the Green
    Day 54: Fri, 5/28: 133.5 - Argh 387 in the Green
    Day 55: Sat, 5/29: 133.8 - Well, the week's weight numbers were good until the last couple. Working so much and not finding time for more activity. 623 in the Green

    Day 56: Sun, 5/30: 132.9 - It has been a challenge for me recently with a hectic schedule. This will be for at least 1 more month, I will have to figure out my nutrition. 749 in the Green
    Day 57: Mon, 5/31: 132.2 - I will be finished work at a reasonable hour today, so will get in a healthy dinner which I will prep this morning.
    Day 58: Tues, 6/1: 132.6 - Working until 9pm tonight and tomorrow - long days for 2, I will have to change up my eating. 1238 in the Green
    Day 59: Wed, 6/2: 132.3 - Astounding amount of calories burned yesterday during work breaks that added up. Pre-logging and prepping food because I am time crunched. 757 in the Green
    Day 60: Thurs, 6/3: 130.9 - Surprised (in a happy way) to see this number once again. We broke heat records here yesterday, maybe it was sweat lol. 855 in the Green
    Day 61: Fri, 6/4: 131.1- Healthy dinner prepped, my go-to: marinated (or sometimes rubbed) chicken breast on the George Foreman grill, 3 or 4 veggies, 1/2 cup basmati, condiments (sour cream and mayo, 1/4 tbsp butter). 733 in the Green
    Day 62: Sat, 6/5: 132.0 - Dissapointed with what the scale said this morning, really thought that it would be less. 221 in the Green

    Day 63: Sun, 6/6: 133.4 - Above my start weight for the 100 : - ( 698 in the Green
    Day 64: Mon, 6/7: 132.0 - Okay. 981 in the Green
    Day 65: Tues, 6/8: 132.0 - Okay. 860 in the Green
    Day 66: Wed, 6/9: 130.9 - I have hit this number before, happy to see it again. 224 in the Green
    Day 67: Thurs, 6/10: 131.3 - It will be a late dinner tonight, I have a long work day today. 660 in the Green
    Day 68: Fri, 6/11: 131.2 - Oooohh, maybe I will hit that weekly ongoing goal finally! We'll see : - ) 229 in the Green
    Day 69: Sat, 6/12: 132.0 - I always seem to be up on the Saturday weigh-ins, so haven't hit my weekly goal this whole 100 even though I have been under it many times. Keeping at it. 571 in the Green

    Day 70: Sun, 6/13: 132.1 - I will be having a split shift schedule at the restaurant starting Wednesday of this week, finishing at 9pm. I will have to figure out/change my eating. Truth is I love to eat lots of veggies with my dinner, specifically Brussels Sprouts (very filling, yummy, and nutritious), so don't want to eat dinner before my evening shift if you catch my drift. (gassy lol) 683 in the Green
    Day 71: Mon, 6/14: 132.9 - No reason for a gain, so hoping to see a better result on the scale tomorrow. 483 in the Green
    Day 72: Tues, 6/15: 133.3 - Above my start weight! I quite expected a drop this morning. Taking it in stride, I turned that frown upside down by having my coffee (and blueberries) out on my covered front porch watching a thunderstorm : - ) 264 in the Green
    Day 73: Wed, 6/16: 133.0 - Very disheartened to be into these 133s again. Not even sure why. I will stick with the plan. I was looking forward to my monthly Ribs for Saturday or Sunday, but I may have to forego them this month. 1083 in the Green
    Day 74: Thurs, 6/17: 132.4 - Ended up burning a whopping amount of calories yesterday between various things. Still higher than I want to be, but glad to not be in the 133s this morning! 811 in the Green
    Day 75: Fri, 6/18: 131.9 - Large calorie burn again. I was so tired that I only ate 1/2 of my dinner. Now I have dinner already made for tonight : - ) (Ground chicken pesto burger on Brioche, delicious) 810 in the Green
    Day 76: Sat, 6/19: 131.6 - Still haven't hit that 2 pound loss yet, 24 days left of this 100, and i certainly had hoped to lose more than 2! Really wanting Ribs or some other indulgence, but I don't want to derail. 955 in the Green


    1st Week Goal Weight: 131.1

    @deepwoodslady

    I totally hear you about being able to gain 2 or 3 pounds in one day.
    I hit 130.2 on day 50 but have yet to get back there. It sometimes seems precarious.
    However, I felt the same way about trying to get out of the 180s - 2 steps forward 1 step back. I teetered up and down and around it, and until I hit 175 I didn't feel really entrenched into the 170s
    The lifestyle/eating habits changes are a mindset, or rather a reset.
    Eventually it pays off and is sustainable long term.
    The yo-yoing drives me nuts lol. I suppose that I need to just trust in the process.

    200.2!!! You are on the precipice : - )
    You can totally do this. Rooting for you.

    Day 75: Fri, 6/18: 206.4 Walked 2 miles, 1936 cal, 58 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Dining out Italian style :) Otherwise a good day but with bad results on the scale.
    Day 76: Sat, 6/19: 205.6 No exercise, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 margaritas. Morning funeral for a friend's husband + when my mom (84) drove in Thursday late afternoon we realized that she needed to go to the doc after her fall Wednesday morning (stubborn woman) so Friday morning talked her out of getting her nails done and going to the doc instead ... she ended up with surgery last night for a broken wrist + another celebration for DD & her husband. Fiesta planned in 2020 before her wedding that had to be postponed.

    11th Week Actual Weight: 205.6
    Well that was a lot of up and down this past week! Let’s see if I do better next week getting below 205.

    Day 77: Sun, 6/20: 207.1 No exercise, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. We celebrated fathers day on Saturday and ate two large meals. Guessing that I should have not filled my plate! And maybe sleep in so I’m not weighing myself before the sun rises. Hope some of this is just temporary!!!

    Day 28: Sun, 5/2: 149 This is simply not possible. I think yesterday’s weight may have been too low, because this huge gain cannot be right. I did eat out last night but I was reasonable. This has to be some major water retention.

    Day 52: Wed, 5/26: 144 Had Mexican food last night, just chicken tacos, tortilla chips, refried bean dip and salsa. Didn't eat to the point of feeling full, and was within calories (including exercise) if I input the correct info. The restaurant didn't have nutrition info available, so I used info in MFP food database. Suspect this bump up is sodium so I'll be hitting the H2O hard today. My goal is to be 142.x Friday.
