    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ July 14 through Oct 21, 2021
    My Name is Donna, Age 61. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 159-154

    Ending Weight Last Round (start weight this round): 195.2 lbs


    Day 01 – 07/14 …..196.0….. Ouch! Starting a bit higher than I’d hoped for. No proper TMI since last weigh-in. However, I know the peanut butter filled pretzels with those big chunks of rock salt on them didn’t help. I know I am retaining fluids. No proper pee either. Sorry so graphic but all of that does make a difference. Today I am taking my son and his friend for a short trip out of town for the Dairy Queen. I will keep my meal small and try to get in some extra steps later today. Water….water….water…. So nice to see some newbies to the challenge! Welcome! Good luck everyone. I’m on your side and offer 100% support!
    Day 02 – 07/15 …..196.8….. Regular hamburger and blizzard at the DQ. Looked up calories later and found the medium pecan turtle blizzard is 900 calories!!!! Yes you read that right! 900. After seeing that, I kept the rest of the evening and night very low cal. I ate less than I burned for the day so I’m disappointed to see a gain. No TMI x 2 is probably contributing. I will be drinking cleanse tea today in the hopes of emptying. I will also stay accountable. The ups & downs of it all are frustrating when you are still trying to enjoy life. This is exactly why I wanted to firmly get into the 197’s before I felt confident being in Onederland. I can ride the waves of the journey and still be below 200. I will have a good day today. My head is on straight and my thinking cap is on.
    Day 03 – 07/16 …..195.6….. Shed water all night so the whoosh is no surprise. I knew I was retaining water from a few days of a few bad choices. I put more thought into my meal planning yesterday although my steps were only at 9000+. Maybe today I can get in more steps. Workers will be here again today. Starting new projects while waiting for the drywall finisher.
    Day 04 – 07/17 …..195.4….. I would like to get to the 192’s in the coming couple of weeks. That would put me about ½ way to the 180’s. It is much slower when watching calories instead of just carbs, but I am hoping the weight loss will be more lasting.
    Day 05 - 07/18 …..194.8….. I had a great but scary day yesterday. Great that I stuck to plan and got in a bit of a hike. Scary that I finally decided to log my food for the first time since before covid. Thanks to all of you who chimed in to help me figure out my new macros and goals. I may have to play with it a bit but I feel good about facing my weaknesses right now and looking at them square in the face which is how logging my food feels right now to me. I know my choices in foods are not always the greatest. That is the scary part. Do I really want to see it in writing again? I’m ready for this step. It helped me lose a lot of weight before and I know it will again. It’s a commitment and those can be hard for me. I felt ready yesterday and am still feeling good today.
    Day 06 – 07/19 …..194.0….. Very low calorie yesterday. Even lower than what I ended up on my logging. Due to my workers coming late and staying so late, I ate way later than usual (11:00 PM). I prelogged so that I could close out for the day but I didn’t end up fitting in my evening snack. My very late dinner had filled me up. Today should be back up to goal. I saw a nice drop on the scale this morning and on my body fat %, but it may be temporary due to yesterdays low calorie. My BMI is still at 32.5. I have a long way to go before getting out of obese and into overweight. I am still aiming for 192 point anything as that will make me so much closer to the new decade. I need to plan my meals for today so I can stay on track. I’m starving already! I scrubbed down the outside of the house yesterday with the help of a neighbor teenager. I didn’t log it as exercise but my burn was very good yesterday because of that.
    Day 07 – 07/20 …..194.4….. I don’t get it. I had a day with calories left over in the green. My meals were not sodium filled so there should not have been water retention. TMI yesterday evening was so-so. But it was there. Just as we have been talking about in our conversations, the numbers don’t always make sense for many of us. I guess I will have to be patient and ride it out. It’s a helluva journey but we are all worth it, right?
    Day 08 – 07/21 …..193.4….. Finally those low calorie days showed up on the scale! Thank you @dawnbgethealthy for reminding me that it could take a few days to arrive! I did up my calories yesterday by eating a higher calorie dinner I may not have chosen otherwise, just to fit in some calories (or they would have been way too low again). I did not over eat. I just chose something with a higher count. I did yard work yesterday. I also stacked quite a bit of wood and did some raking. However, I did not close all my circles and my calorie burn was lower so I will work on getting in a walk or a small hike today. I’ve got to take advantage of this weather and stay active!
    Day 09 – 07/22 …..194.2….. Dammit! I got really hungry last night because dinner earlier just didn’t satisfy. I ended up eating extra “diet” snacks. I was in the red by 199 calories. 0.8 heavier today which is concerning because I am having a long travel day today which will mean restaurants and sitting. I dread tomorrow’s weigh-in! On the good side – my trend weight is still going down. Staying grateful!

    Day 10 – 07/23 …..196.4….. It’s all showing up now. The mini binge Wed night and the travel and horrid choices at the restaurants on Thur. I deserve this unfortunately. Today I will have a low calorie day on purpose and I will try to up my exercise by taking small walks throughout the day (while workers work on reno). I won’t allow this to stick!
    Day 11 – 07/24 …..196.6….. A normal fluctuation due to no TMI x2. Yesterday didn’t end up being the extra low calorie I had planned. A worker and I ended up out of town for something specific. About an hour each way to drive, I bought him dinner out for his extra time and effort. I kept the meal reasonable and had been fasting most of the day so the hit on the scale was not bad. Today I will try again for the low cal but it is pouring the rain today so likely there will no no outside activity.
    Day 12 – 07/25 …..194.8….. I was finally able to go extra low calorie yesterday. 1004 calories and felt satisfied because of my good choices. Extra veggies. Only 48 oz of water (besides my black coffee) for the day. Only 12 minutes of walking up and down my steep driveway (couldn’t get away). But I did my best to stay the course. Only 4 hours of sleep last night. None of that helps but my efforts (no matter how small) payed off on the scale. I am excited for today. My very best childhood friend is here in Michigan for a visit from Tennessee. I am meeting her halfway downstate this afternoon for a quick visit and lunch. She had to come back home to Mich for a memorial service of a relative. Another restaurant meal today. Oh the ups and downs of it all! However, I will make up for it and will try to get extra movement in tonight or tomorrow. I’m excited to see her! #enjoyinglifetoday.
    Day 13 – 07/26 …..194.8….. So happy to see the scale didn’t go up after yesterday’s special lunch with Audrey. I hope it doesn’t show up tomorrow! My weight is still trending down and so is my fat % but is still higher than my actual scale weight. It has not caught up with the recent weight loss yet since my birthday in May. It moves slowly both ways and I like that since it doesn’t reflect those small fluctuations that correct theirselves. I am hoping the rest of July will keep me at home with no travel. I do so much better.
    Day 14 – 07/27 …..193.4….. A nice whoosh. Good day yesterday all around although dinner was late. Scared Sh**less last night. A damn bat was flying over my bed under the ceiling fan! I got it out of my room, opened the attached garage doors and then locked myself and Pebbles back into my room. I have no idea if it is still in here. I’ve looked this morning and see nothing on any of the floors but where would it be during the day if it is still in here? Help!!! Advice?
    Day 15 – 07/28 …..193.2….. I am going out of town today afterall. I think I am going to buy a new car today. Actually a used car from a dealership that I’ve dealt with in the past. It is very clean and very nice and exactly the vehicle that I now have (only a lot newer). This little champ gets me through the hard winters, snow and ice like a champ so I am getting another one for sure, and hopefully that is today. I will take my son with me and get him out to a nice dinner. I already know where he will want to go and while I can watch my portions, I know what I order will be filled with sodium. I will push water the next few days and solve that issue. One day and one meal does not a girl make. Are you listening @Lilylady3k ??? LOL We will be fine!
    Day 16 – 07/29 …..194.4….. Expected after the travel yesterday. I will have leftovers today for dinner so I’m not sure how that will affect the scale tomorrow for the weigh-in. I will, otherwise, IF 16/8 today, push water, and watch my nighttime snacks I signed on the newer used car at the dealership yesterday. I asked them to add remote start, change the grill in the front because I found a small crack in it although it’s never been in an accident (grocery cart?). They are also going to deliver it to me when all is done. That is great considering it is almost 100 miles away each way. Spoil me already! No bat detected last night before sleep…….

    Day 17 - 07/30 …..194.2….. I had a great day yesterday. Calories and carbs within plan. I got in some extra calorie burn. However, no TMI day 2, very low water intake and no sleep for days now because of the bat situation. I suppose a 0.2 loss is better than nothing! I am planning another good day today. I’ll try to watch the sodium today as that has been through the roof!
    Day 18 – 07/31 …..192.4….. A new low for me since before Covid. After 4 days of travel this past week, I didn’t expect this. However, on the days I was at home I really stuck to plan. Yesterday was a so-so day as I seemed hungier than usual. That often happens after higher calorie days. However, I stuck to plan and ate at the upper half of my range to avoid temptations. Very little movement yesterday but I did fit in a short walk as it was getting dark. Lots of water shedding last night interrupted my sleep. It was so bad that between 4:00 am and 5:00 am I actually got up 6 times to pee. So I think that explains the loss on the scale. The sodium and water retention should be all gone now! No TMI day 3 for me. All these fluctuations in how my body is working really makes a difference. I’m hoping to add some extra fiber today and make a good difference in the coming days. Even with the interruptions, I slept a little over 6 hours and that is a lot for me. I think that was key to my loss this morning too. My well is being worked on today. I pray they can fix the horrific and very rusty leaks without breaking anything. Going without water would be horrible! Fingers crossed for me everybody!

    Weight Loss in July……………….. 3.8 lbs lost (partial month)
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..3.8 lbs

    Day 19 – 08/01 …..191.4….. Didn’t have much time to eat yesterday and dinner was very late (within 1 hour of bed). No water here since yesterday morning due to well problems. Seal was fixed (???) but no one can get the pump primed. Perhaps the check gauge went out when it was turned off? IDK but this is horrible!

    Day 20 – 08/02 …..189.6….. Thrilled with this number but I must be honest and say that I could be slightly dehydrated. Due to the well problems and no water since Saturday morning, I have had to be a bit stingy with my water usage and intake. This may go back up when the well pump is fixed. Plumber is going to try to get out here this evening. If not, then tomorrow. Ugh!!! In any case, yesterday was a good day overall in the journey. I ate at the top of my calorie allowance due to peanut butter on a plain bagel. After counting carbs for the past few years with no mind to calories, I was S.H.O.C.K.E.D at what the calorie content was when I later logged it. 500 calories for a plain bagel with 3 measured TBSP of Jif creamy peanutbutter! Never will those 2 things go together again and in my mouth at the same time! I was trying to up my protein as my logging shows I have been consistently under in the protein department. I also added yogurt nearly everyday to help boost it. I need to do more. Anyway, I was happy to see a new decade on the scale but I will not trust it until I get to 187 point anything.

    100 Days of Weighing In - Round 9
    2021 Word: Peace

    About Me
    Female, Age 34, 5'3", Proud Aussie
    Highest weight: 305.1 (August 14th, 2020)
    Current round start weight: 273.4

    History & Goals
    2017: Weighed around 275 lbs, had a cancer scare and started IVF
    2018: Successful IVF on our third transfer, gave birth in December to a healthy baby boy
    2019: Returned to work, gained progressively, weighed around 300 lbs
    2020: Hit my highest ever weight of 305 lbs, decided I could not let this continue and rediscovered MFP. Lost about 15 lbs and finished the year at 293 lbs.
    2021: Ups and downs but slow and steady progress, lost another 20 lbs so far this year.

    I have a goal ladder that helps me stay focused on teeny tiny little milestones.
    Current goal ladder rung: Weigh the same as Junior Paulo!

    Current Focus:
    1. Sleep (target: 7 hours per night)
    2. Calorie deficit (target: any)
    3. Exercise consistency (target: 20 mins per day)
    4. Screen-free before bed (target: 5 nights per week)
    5. Limit social media (target: sub-60 minutes per day)
    Day 1: Wed, 7/14: 273.4 - all focus goals complete for today!
    Day 2: Thurs, 7/15: 272.5 - all focus complete for today! Down 0.9 lbs, probably water weight as I was retaining last week and have dropped a lot in the last few days.
    Day 3: Fri, 7/16: 272.7 - didn't have a good day yesterday, overate and didn't exercise.
    Day 4: Sat, 7/17: 272.3 - another sub-par day with no exercise and overating! I refeed on the weekends, but not usually by this much. Need to refocus today.
    1st Week Goal Weight: 273.0
    1st Week Actual Weight: 272.3
    1st Week Weight Lost: 1.1 lbs
    Day 5: Sun, 7/18: 275.1 - ate pizza last night, the sodium has caused a blip of water weight. It will come back down!
    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 274.3 - had a much better day, calorie-wise. Went for a nice walk to a nearby park with my son and my sister and played there for a while, and did some yoga in the evening which was a nice stretch. Water weight is coming back down, hope to see that continue.
    Day 7: Tues, 7/20: 273.2 - had another good day. Stayed in my calorie range and did a YouTube step class video which worked up a great sweat. Hoping to see the scale continue to move down as I drop that water weight I picked up last week!
    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 272.7 - another good day, almost got the water weight gone. Stayed in my calorie range and played Beat Saber on my VR for 20 minutes before it was time to wind down for bed. I had planned to play for longer but my sister dropped by for a visit and didn't leave until 9:30pm! Took my toddler to his first Kinder Gym class and he loved it, so he will be able to go each week and I'll go to the gym while he's in class. I don't get to the gym much but it's right around the corner from the dance studio so it will work out well.
    Day 9: Thurs, 7/22: 272.5 - another good day, but don't think I'll hit my adjusted goal for this week. I was originally aiming for 272 but changed it after I finished Week 1 with such a low number. I hope I can hit that original goal, it's still a good target for me!
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 272.3 - another good day, everything on target for the day and back to where I finished Week 1.
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: 272.9 - water retention :angry:
    2nd Week Goal Weight: 271.0
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 272.9
    2nd Week Weight Lost: +0.6 lbs
    Day 12: Sun, 7/25: 273.4
    Day 13: Mon, 7/26: 273.6 - retaining a lot of water. I had good deficits all week last week, so I know the scale will catch up eventually!
    Day 14: Tues, 7/27: 272.7 - still retaining water, but starting to see it drop off which is good. Had an ok day yesterday, with a good deficit.
    Day 15: Wed, 7/28: 272.9 - had a good day yesterday with a good deficit, went to the gym for a bit while my son was in his kinder gym class. Was disappointed to find they don't have kettlebells! Unless they're out in the back room, I didn't go out there.
    Day 16: Thurs, 7/29: 272.3 - wasn't the best of days but still finished with a deficit. Had planned to do a good workout in the evening so I'd eaten a bit more in the day, but ended up getting two bad nosebleeds in the evening so could only manage a short walk.
    Day 17: Fri, 7/30: 271.4 - didn't have a great day but again had a deficit. Good to see the water weight I was carrying is gone now and my consistent deficits are showing up on the scale!
    Day 18: Sat, 7/31: 272.3 - Falling into a funk again. Need to get back on track! Tomorrow is a new day, and a new month. We got this.
    3rd Week Goal Weight: 271.9
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 272.3
    3rd Week Weight Lost: 0.6 lbs

    Day 19: Sun, 8/1: 270.5 - no idea what's caused this little whoosh today but I'm grateful for it. Start of a new month, lots to look forward to!
    Day 20: Mon, 8/2: 270.7 - glad to see the whoosh wasn't just a one-off!
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3 270.5 - making good choices this week and staying as active as I can manage with time constraints!

    Thank you @Miyoka_Tata - I've been waiting for this challenge to begin fresh again so I could join. I love the idea of a 100-day challenge.

    Heaviest weight ever: 186.0
    Weight when I came back to MFP on May 10: 183.1


    Day 20: 8/02: 169.6 Overindulged yesterday - salt, sugar, carbs, drinks - you name it! I'm surprised I'm not up higher but I weighed late today. Just one day will not undo my hard work as long as I catch it today. Today is all about water, water and more water!


    @fmfdfa2020

    Can I have some of that water? LOL

    Oh no, I just realized why you said that. I'm so sorry about your well. No water since Saturday! Ugh! I hope you have some bottles of drinking water that will help a little. Good luck, I sure hope you have it resolved soon. We are on well water, too, and my husband was just talking about slowly stocking up on water for when the power goes out (which seems to happen here all the time).

    Congratulations on hitting the 180's. It wasn't long ago that you hit the 190's - you are crushing it! Even if you bounce back and forth (which is what I do as well), you will be solidly there soon. So great!

    100 Days of Accountability 7/14-10/21
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 60, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 205 (7/13)
    Challenge Goal: <195

    History & Goals
    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 SW: 245 BMI 43.4 (1/2/2019) Lost 15 lbs in 2019 then regained 5
    2020 SW: 235 BMI 41.6 (1/1/2020) Then back up to 241 before refocusing in Aug
    2021 SW: 212 BMI 37.6 (1/1/2021)
    UGW: 165 BMI 29.2 Overweight NOT Obese
    🎯 Mini Goals & Weight:
    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * Onederland: 199
    * Weigh less than DH: 206 (April 2021) ✔️:)

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150's

    My goal for 2021 is to get into ONEderland and make it stick. Changing my life.
    Plans:
    🔹Find workout routine that works (walk, bike, planks, yoga, swim, take advantage of retirement to be more active); target walking 100 miles each month
    🔹Drink more water (target min 64-80 oz daily; start with 1 glass before coffee)
    🔹Journal Food Daily (tracking with MFP since 12/28/2018; basically skipped June-Dec 2019; recommit 1/1/2020; skipped out April-July 2020; recommit 8/6/2020)
    🔹Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)
    🔹Drink less alcohol (3 AF days per week; ~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)

    Day 1: Wed, 7/14: 207.0 Walked .9 + 1.75 miles, swimming, 1565 cal, 68 net carbs, AF. Hiking in Brazos State Park & swimming to entertain my daughter-in-law’s 5 yr old niece that is visiting. Came too close to an alligator! Wow that is a strange & disappointing jump up on the scale this morning! Could sweet potato fries do that much damage at lunch?
    Day 2: Thurs, 7/15: 207.2 Walked 4.5 miles, bike 30 min, squats, hand weights, cal, net carbs, 1 Torchy’s Tini. Chili for lunch and Torchy’s for dinner. Walked the dog to my home owners’ assoc. local lap pool (heated during the winter) to see if my key card still works which was much further than I thought but a nice walk (better than jumping in the car!). It is still active so I guess I need to consider adding swimming laps to my routine. The dog & I were both exhausted walking in the heat but we beat the rain! Need to make a point to get out earlier in the morning.
    Day 3: Fri, 7/16: 207.4 WI at 4am. Walk 2 + 1.3 miles, weeding/gardening, 2187 cal, 141 net carbs, AF (Neon Zebra margarita mocktail). Pizza for lunch & quesadillas for dinner. Need to clean up my meal planning.
    Day 4: Sat, 7/17: 206.2 Walk 1 + 1.3 miles, 1892 cal, 95 net carbs, 3 glasses wine.

    1st Week Goal Weight: 204.x Repeating goal until I hit it
    1st Week Actual Weight: 206.2
    Not even close. I was at 205 the day before the challenge started and it should have been easy peasy to make a 204.x goal. But on day 1 my weight skyrocketed. Finally got it going back down. Now to continue breaking through that 205 barrier.

    Day 5: Sun, 7/18: 207.0 Walk 1.3 miles , 1511 cal, 83 net carbs, 4 glasses wine. Nice morning breakfast outside then farmers market with DD & her husband & dogs. A pretty lazy day but did throw out more stuff as I anticipate a possible move. Also sorted more of my kids’ medical, scouting and school records along with their birth, baptism, lifeguarding & other certificates to pass along to them. The idea of moving elsewhere away from the kids and all the community I’ve built up over the past 30 years in Houston is starting to stress me out. Drinking more, not paying attention to the meal planning, not sleeping well (dreams of what if) and in general riddled with anxiety.
    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 205.9 Walked 3.2 miles, 1480 cal, 76 net carbs, 4 glasses wine. Good day. Kids came over to cook burgers for lunch and chat.
    Day 7: Tues, 7/20: 207.1 Walked 3.25 miles, gardened, 1509 cal, 122 net carbs, AF. Lunch & dinner with friends first Thai and then Mediterranean so I’m assuming that this is sodium or hidden calories since I was in the green 246 calories yesterday. Plan is to stay on track today and drink LOTS of water.
    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 204.9 Walk 4.5 + 1.3 miles, bike 30 min, squats & hand weights, 1252 cal, 110 net carbs, AF. Big swoosh from yesterday which was an obvious sodium uptick. Now to keep this below 205 for the rest of the week!
    Day 9: Thurs, 7/22: 204.3 Walk 3 + 1.3 miles, garden, 1161 cal, 49 net carbs, AF. Tried Kombucha for the first time. Kevita sparkling Lemon Cayenne. Nice change of pace!
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 204.6 Walk 3.3 miles, garden, 1439 cal, 77 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine. Today I’m meeting an old friend to walk the paths on Buffalo Bayou downtown Houston, Cisterns tour, and picnic!
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: 204.5 Walked 2 + 3.4 + .6 miles Buffalo Bayou, 1564 cal, 101 net carbs, 2 glasses of wine. Wonderful active day! Closed all my rings plus overlapped the rings on the Apple Watch. 19550 steps!

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 204.x Repeating goal until I hit it
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 204.5
    Nailed it! 4 days in a row :)
    Day 12: Sun, 7/25: 205.0 Walk 3.2 + .6 miles, 1538 cal, 120 net carbs, AF. Grimaldi’s pizza … need I say more? Drinking water!
    Day 13: Mon, 7/26: 204.6 Walk 3.6 miles, bike 30 min, squats. plank & hand weights, 1649 cal, 64 net carbs, AF. Woke up too early and I was exhausted all day. Tried on every pant in my closet which was interesting. I’m pear shape size 18. I already threw out the size 20 & 22 pants. Put everything that was too small in another area to pull out when I’m 10 pounds lighter because though size 16 fits it doesn’t look great. I’m really apprehensive about this 1 hr Strong and Fit total body workout I signed up to take once per week. But I think it will be good for my bones & muscles as I age and hopefully it will help shape my legs, tummy and arms!
    Day 14: Tues, 7/27: 204.6 Walk 3.2 + .6 miles, 14200 steps, total body workout class 1 hr, 1552 cal, 103 net carbs, AF. Survived my first Strong & Fit class one-hour total body workout increases muscle strength and endurance by using light weights and high repetition. Lots of lunges, squats, planks and such with tons of arm movement. Sore this morning.
    Day 15: Wed, 7/28: 205.2 Walk 4.6 + 1.4 miles, bike 30 min, 2044 cal, 120 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Almost 500 cal in snacks during the day then changed dinner plans and went to a favorite Italian restaurant. Undid all my great efforts exercising in the morning.
    Day 16: Thurs, 7/29: 205.0 Walk 2.3 miles, swim 400m, 2171 cal, 84 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. I’m really starting to feel all the muscles in my body adding the strength training Monday and then swimming Wednesday on top of my regular walking dog 100miles/month and bike 1x/wk.
    Day 17: Fri, 7/30: 205.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walk 2 miles, long 5+ hr car ride, 11602 cal, 127 net carbs, AF. Got up and walked at 6am yesterday since I knew I was taking my mom to the doctor before driving to the camp. It all makes for a very long day.
    Day 18: Sat, 7/31: 205.4 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 3.6 miles, power washed the dock, 1789 cal, 108 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. Took mom to the rehab center for her wrist and a lady behind us fell … took 3 people to get her up. Then neighbor at the camp fell hitting her head. She is 101 years old. Helped her until ambulance was able to make it out to our remote location. Then when her husband brought her back home he called again for me to help get her into bed. I did not sleep well. After seeing these 2 fall I REALLY want to lose weight. Being old, obese and not very mobile is not in my vision of my future. Ready to tackle August and lose more weight.

    3rd Week Goal Weight: <204

    Round #8: EW 139

    Day 1: Wed, 7/14: 139.8
    Day 2: Thu, 7/15: 140.2
    For the past week or so, when I ate over 1100 calories, I gained the next day. So I'm gonna stay under 1100 for the foreseeable future, except for special occasions. I have a birthday party to attend Saturday and a family reunion the next Saturday, so there will be some significant face stuffage then.
    Day 3: Fri, 7/16: 140
    Day 4: Sat, 7/17: 141.6
    Had a fairly hefty dinner last night, so this is mostly sodium and actual weight of the food, which is still with me.

    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 139.8
    Day 7: Tue, 7/20: 138.2
    Well, that was a nice whoosh! I am unofficially down 30 pounds since January 15. I say unofficially because my official weigh day is Friday. And I'm eating Chinese food tomorrow for dinner.
    Week 1 Loss: -2

    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 137.8
    Day 9: Thu, 7/22: 142
    This is mostly sodium and weight of food from eating out last night, but dang! I didn’t think I ate that much!
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 139.6
    Much better!
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: DNW

    Day 14: Tue, 7/27: 139.8
    Had a family reunion Saturday where there was much food. I actually didn't eat to the point that I was uncomfortable, but it was enough to make me too scared to get on the scale the last few days!
    Week 2 GAIN: +1.4

    Day 15: Wed, 7/28: 139.2
    Day 16: Thu, 7/29: 138.2

    Pretty quick weight loss the last few days. Don't know why, but I'll take it!

    July Loss: -3.4

    Day 19: Sun, 8/1: 136.6
    Day 20: Mon, 8/2: 138
    My sister had lunch for everyone yesterday. I was fine until she brought out the brownies and pie. This is mostly sodium weight and should be mostly gone by tomorrow.

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

    This is my 7th round on this thread: Round 1 loss 3.7, Round 2 loss 2.7, Round 3 loss 8.9, Round 4 loss 4.0
    Round 5 loss 4.6. Round 6 - gain of 0.08
    24.8 pound loss over 601 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 7/14:132.2 - Wish that I had weighed this yesterday instead of 133.9 to end the previous 100! 312 in the Green
    Day 2 7/15: 132.2 - Usually my weight jumps around quite around a bit, nice to see that I didn't somehow gain. 489 in the Green
    Day 3 7/16: 133.1 - Had Beef Palak last night 803 in the Green
    Day 4 7/17: 132.9 - 390 in the Green

    1st Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    1st Week Actual Weight: 132.9
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 1994. Divided by the 4 days is 798.5, very close to my goal of having a 500 calories deficit each day (3500 calories in a pound, so shooting to lose 1 pound per week)

    Day 5: Sun, 7/18: 133.3 - owch. 616 in the Green
    Day 6: Mon, 7/19: 133.9 - I didn't do anything to gain. I will keep plugging along though. I am working out of town today and have scheduled 2 visits with separate groups up there once I finish my work, and then another back here. Would have been nice to have a cushion since there will be drinks and snacks at all 3. 334 in the Green
    Day 7: Tues, 7/20: 132.8 - I have an evening shift today and a split shift tomorrow. I don't like eating so late, but I eat so many vegetables with my dinner that I don't eat before work so that I am not gassy lol. 906 in the Green
    Day 8: Wed, 7/21: 133.3 - Late dinner, as tonight will be because of my work schedule. I really do know that eating late is a killer to my weight loss, but it is what it is. 391 in the Green
    Day 9: Thurs, 7/22: 132.8 - Bouncing around as usual. Of course i would rather be bouncing around in the 120s, hopefully eventually! 917 in the Green
    Day 10: Fri, 7/23: 132.7 - Late dinner last night again due to work schedule. 313 in the Green
    Day 11: Sat, 7/24: 132.1 - Tonight will be late dinner again. 389 in the Green

    2nd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    2nd Week Actual Weight: 132.1
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 3866 - Average 552, so should have lost a pound and did.

    Day 12 Sun 7/25: 132.4 - My work schedule is posted, I am working the day shifts until Friday, eating dinner earlier will be a benefit to my weight loss I believe. 970 in the Green
    Day 13 Mon 7/26: 132.4 - I got a bunch of yard work done yesterday (drop in the bucket) even though it is smoky around here. 1070 in the Green
    Day 14 Tues 7/27: 132.2 - Huge calorie burn yesterday, dance workout to warm up, HIIT with weights to follow, gardening/yard time before work and after work, plus the 300-400 that I usually burn at work running around. Back to start weight. 217 in the Green
    Day 15 Wed 7/28: 132.1 55 in the Green
    Day 16 Thurs 7/29: 134.8 - Ouch 595 in the Green
    Day 17 Fri 7/30: 134.8 - Not happy about this of course, but taking it in stride. Hopefully my 500 deficit that I aim for will average out over the week, I haven't had time for workouts because of being wrapped up trying to fix my car issues. Spent the entire day yesterday buying a new one, but still have to deal with the dead one in the retail parking lot. On evening shifts for the next couple of weeks, so eating times are a challenge for me. 325 in the Green
    Day 18 Sat 7/31: 133.8 - Down a pound since yesterday, carved out time to work out. My body will just have to get used to eating late after work. 866 in the Green

    3rd Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, starting there
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 133.8 - Gain of 1.4 this week, don't want this to get away from me.
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 4098


    Day 19: Sun, 8/1: 132.9 - My internal clock is off working evening shifts, glad to see a tiny drop. Last week was kind of disastrous on the scale. I had planned an indulgent day after tonight's shift, we'll see. 243 in the Green
    Day 20: Mon, 8/2: 133.3 - We had a bit of drizzle last night, hoping that it will help with the fires 574 in the Green
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3: 133.3

    @deepwoodslady

    MFP fitness tracker showed that you burned over 2500 calories?
    I heard on the radio show today that Garmin and Fitbit are way off when it comes to tracking calorie burn.
    Maybe now that you are back to tracking your food you could put your energy expenditures into MFP fitness tracker too for an accurate idea of calories in calories out. MFP already makes up for normal breathing and sitting etc.

    Oh yes on the bagels. I have taken to just eating 1/2 of one. I like mine toasted with either cream cheese or Almond butter.

    You are doing so great! Cheering over here for you, not only the weight loss but for getting that well going hopefully very soon.

    @dawnbgethealthy - I've noticed that my Apple Watch states I burn more calories than what MFP posts as well. It does track the time and intensity well. Sticking with the lower number in my CICO.

    @dawnbgethealthy

    Like so many others, I use a fitness tracker such as fitbit for overall tracking based on my heart rate. The only thing I can find in MFP is on my food logging page but it only shows my eating calorie goal and then how much of that I ate and what I had in (green) surplus. I also go to the exercise tab and put in my planned exercise I've done. I just can't find the spot where it shows my overall calories in and calorie out expenditure CICO. I don't know how MFP would actually track that in MFP without monitoring my heart rate on my wrist (or somewhere on my actual body). If total calorie out for the day is calculated by MFP I would love to know where. I can see that they may base it on my current height, weight, sex and age but I just don't know where to find that info. It is not on the food logging or exercise logging pages but could definitely be somewhere that I am missing.

    I agree that fitbit and others may not be 100% accurate. It actually can side on the too low side. Because I wear it on my non-dominate wrist, if I don't use that arm during my task or movement, it will not count or give me enough calorie expenditure. It's generally not over, it's under.

    I also use my electronic scale at home for information as well as some websites that base the TDEE on my current height, weight and age and general activity level as reported. All my sources seem to match up. My TDEE is about 2009 right now before extra exercise. It is low-level exercise that gets me over 2500. When I really go for the Gold in movement I easily expend a lot more.

    I've found that using my electronic scale information, my MFP calorie in and exercise calorie out, my fitbit on wrist and fitbit online tracking and trendweight.com and a place I go to verify my current BMI (which always matches my scale BTW) all show me the total overall picture.

    Only on the fitbit tracking website (when you log your food) will all the information be in one place without all the extra work. Calories in the green, total calories burned for the day, BMI, current weight, etc. but I do like to verify it using the other sources as backup including MFP. At every junction I have to trust sources. Even in MFP. How do I really know that walking 3.5 mph at my weight is burning xxx calories? How do I know I'm really that much in the green if the calorie counter is not 100% accurate? I really try to coordinate my information. I want to know my total CICO because every deficit of approx 3500 calories is a pound lost unless there is water loss or muscle loss (always variables ugh!).

    I am enjoying logging my food again in MFP. I also log it in my fitbit online account where my full calorie burn for the day really shows me the complete picture. Not just how much food I ate and if it was within my goal (green or red at the end of the day). It's a little more work to do all the tracking but it is working.

    Because I am still so overweight, a 2500 calorie burn for the day is average with a little extra movement. If I could just get more privacy here at home during this reno, I could burn much more. As I'm losing weight, my TDEE has been going down as it takes less effort to do anything (than it did at 253 lbs). So more and more movement is required of me to keep getting the losses. I am trying to keep up! But the exercise is also getting a little easier to do as I lose this chubbiness so that, at least, is a plus.

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ July 14 through Oct 21, 2021
    My Name is Donna, Age 61. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 159-154

    Ending Weight Last Round (start weight this round): 195.2 lbs


    Day 01 – 07/14 …..196.0….. Ouch! Starting a bit higher than I’d hoped for. No proper TMI since last weigh-in. However, I know the peanut butter filled pretzels with those big chunks of rock salt on them didn’t help. I know I am retaining fluids. No proper pee either. Sorry so graphic but all of that does make a difference. Today I am taking my son and his friend for a short trip out of town for the Dairy Queen. I will keep my meal small and try to get in some extra steps later today. Water….water….water…. So nice to see some newbies to the challenge! Welcome! Good luck everyone. I’m on your side and offer 100% support!
    Day 02 – 07/15 …..196.8….. Regular hamburger and blizzard at the DQ. Looked up calories later and found the medium pecan turtle blizzard is 900 calories!!!! Yes you read that right! 900. After seeing that, I kept the rest of the evening and night very low cal. I ate less than I burned for the day so I’m disappointed to see a gain. No TMI x 2 is probably contributing. I will be drinking cleanse tea today in the hopes of emptying. I will also stay accountable. The ups & downs of it all are frustrating when you are still trying to enjoy life. This is exactly why I wanted to firmly get into the 197’s before I felt confident being in Onederland. I can ride the waves of the journey and still be below 200. I will have a good day today. My head is on straight and my thinking cap is on.
    Day 03 – 07/16 …..195.6….. Shed water all night so the whoosh is no surprise. I knew I was retaining water from a few days of a few bad choices. I put more thought into my meal planning yesterday although my steps were only at 9000+. Maybe today I can get in more steps. Workers will be here again today. Starting new projects while waiting for the drywall finisher.
    Day 04 – 07/17 …..195.4….. I would like to get to the 192’s in the coming couple of weeks. That would put me about ½ way to the 180’s. It is much slower when watching calories instead of just carbs, but I am hoping the weight loss will be more lasting.
    Day 05 - 07/18 …..194.8….. I had a great but scary day yesterday. Great that I stuck to plan and got in a bit of a hike. Scary that I finally decided to log my food for the first time since before covid. Thanks to all of you who chimed in to help me figure out my new macros and goals. I may have to play with it a bit but I feel good about facing my weaknesses right now and looking at them square in the face which is how logging my food feels right now to me. I know my choices in foods are not always the greatest. That is the scary part. Do I really want to see it in writing again? I’m ready for this step. It helped me lose a lot of weight before and I know it will again. It’s a commitment and those can be hard for me. I felt ready yesterday and am still feeling good today.
    Day 06 – 07/19 …..194.0….. Very low calorie yesterday. Even lower than what I ended up on my logging. Due to my workers coming late and staying so late, I ate way later than usual (11:00 PM). I prelogged so that I could close out for the day but I didn’t end up fitting in my evening snack. My very late dinner had filled me up. Today should be back up to goal. I saw a nice drop on the scale this morning and on my body fat %, but it may be temporary due to yesterdays low calorie. My BMI is still at 32.5. I have a long way to go before getting out of obese and into overweight. I am still aiming for 192 point anything as that will make me so much closer to the new decade. I need to plan my meals for today so I can stay on track. I’m starving already! I scrubbed down the outside of the house yesterday with the help of a neighbor teenager. I didn’t log it as exercise but my burn was very good yesterday because of that.
    Day 07 – 07/20 …..194.4….. I don’t get it. I had a day with calories left over in the green. My meals were not sodium filled so there should not have been water retention. TMI yesterday evening was so-so. But it was there. Just as we have been talking about in our conversations, the numbers don’t always make sense for many of us. I guess I will have to be patient and ride it out. It’s a helluva journey but we are all worth it, right?
    Day 08 – 07/21 …..193.4….. Finally those low calorie days showed up on the scale! Thank you @dawnbgethealthy for reminding me that it could take a few days to arrive! I did up my calories yesterday by eating a higher calorie dinner I may not have chosen otherwise, just to fit in some calories (or they would have been way too low again). I did not over eat. I just chose something with a higher count. I did yard work yesterday. I also stacked quite a bit of wood and did some raking. However, I did not close all my circles and my calorie burn was lower so I will work on getting in a walk or a small hike today. I’ve got to take advantage of this weather and stay active!
    Day 09 – 07/22 …..194.2….. Dammit! I got really hungry last night because dinner earlier just didn’t satisfy. I ended up eating extra “diet” snacks. I was in the red by 199 calories. 0.8 heavier today which is concerning because I am having a long travel day today which will mean restaurants and sitting. I dread tomorrow’s weigh-in! On the good side – my trend weight is still going down. Staying grateful!

    Day 10 – 07/23 …..196.4….. It’s all showing up now. The mini binge Wed night and the travel and horrid choices at the restaurants on Thur. I deserve this unfortunately. Today I will have a low calorie day on purpose and I will try to up my exercise by taking small walks throughout the day (while workers work on reno). I won’t allow this to stick!
    Day 11 – 07/24 …..196.6….. A normal fluctuation due to no TMI x2. Yesterday didn’t end up being the extra low calorie I had planned. A worker and I ended up out of town for something specific. About an hour each way to drive, I bought him dinner out for his extra time and effort. I kept the meal reasonable and had been fasting most of the day so the hit on the scale was not bad. Today I will try again for the low cal but it is pouring the rain today so likely there will no no outside activity.
    Day 12 – 07/25 …..194.8….. I was finally able to go extra low calorie yesterday. 1004 calories and felt satisfied because of my good choices. Extra veggies. Only 48 oz of water (besides my black coffee) for the day. Only 12 minutes of walking up and down my steep driveway (couldn’t get away). But I did my best to stay the course. Only 4 hours of sleep last night. None of that helps but my efforts (no matter how small) payed off on the scale. I am excited for today. My very best childhood friend is here in Michigan for a visit from Tennessee. I am meeting her halfway downstate this afternoon for a quick visit and lunch. She had to come back home to Mich for a memorial service of a relative. Another restaurant meal today. Oh the ups and downs of it all! However, I will make up for it and will try to get extra movement in tonight or tomorrow. I’m excited to see her! #enjoyinglifetoday.
    Day 13 – 07/26 …..194.8….. So happy to see the scale didn’t go up after yesterday’s special lunch with Audrey. I hope it doesn’t show up tomorrow! My weight is still trending down and so is my fat % but is still higher than my actual scale weight. It has not caught up with the recent weight loss yet since my birthday in May. It moves slowly both ways and I like that since it doesn’t reflect those small fluctuations that correct theirselves. I am hoping the rest of July will keep me at home with no travel. I do so much better.
    Day 14 – 07/27 …..193.4….. A nice whoosh. Good day yesterday all around although dinner was late. Scared Sh**less last night. A damn bat was flying over my bed under the ceiling fan! I got it out of my room, opened the attached garage doors and then locked myself and Pebbles back into my room. I have no idea if it is still in here. I’ve looked this morning and see nothing on any of the floors but where would it be during the day if it is still in here? Help!!! Advice?
    Day 15 – 07/28 …..193.2….. I am going out of town today afterall. I think I am going to buy a new car today. Actually a used car from a dealership that I’ve dealt with in the past. It is very clean and very nice and exactly the vehicle that I now have (only a lot newer). This little champ gets me through the hard winters, snow and ice like a champ so I am getting another one for sure, and hopefully that is today. I will take my son with me and get him out to a nice dinner. I already know where he will want to go and while I can watch my portions, I know what I order will be filled with sodium. I will push water the next few days and solve that issue. One day and one meal does not a girl make. Are you listening @Lilylady3k ??? LOL We will be fine!
    Day 16 – 07/29 …..194.4….. Expected after the travel yesterday. I will have leftovers today for dinner so I’m not sure how that will affect the scale tomorrow for the weigh-in. I will, otherwise, IF 16/8 today, push water, and watch my nighttime snacks I signed on the newer used car at the dealership yesterday. I asked them to add remote start, change the grill in the front because I found a small crack in it although it’s never been in an accident (grocery cart?). They are also going to deliver it to me when all is done. That is great considering it is almost 100 miles away each way. Spoil me already! No bat detected last night before sleep…….

    Day 17 - 07/30 …..194.2….. I had a great day yesterday. Calories and carbs within plan. I got in some extra calorie burn. However, no TMI day 2, very low water intake and no sleep for days now because of the bat situation. I suppose a 0.2 loss is better than nothing! I am planning another good day today. I’ll try to watch the sodium today as that has been through the roof!
    Day 18 – 07/31 …..192.4….. A new low for me since before Covid. After 4 days of travel this past week, I didn’t expect this. However, on the days I was at home I really stuck to plan. Yesterday was a so-so day as I seemed hungier than usual. That often happens after higher calorie days. However, I stuck to plan and ate at the upper half of my range to avoid temptations. Very little movement yesterday but I did fit in a short walk as it was getting dark. Lots of water shedding last night interrupted my sleep. It was so bad that between 4:00 am and 5:00 am I actually got up 6 times to pee. So I think that explains the loss on the scale. The sodium and water retention should be all gone now! No TMI day 3 for me. All these fluctuations in how my body is working really makes a difference. I’m hoping to add some extra fiber today and make a good difference in the coming days. Even with the interruptions, I slept a little over 6 hours and that is a lot for me. I think that was key to my loss this morning too. My well is being worked on today. I pray they can fix the horrific and very rusty leaks without breaking anything. Going without water would be horrible! Fingers crossed for me everybody!

    Weight Loss in July……………….. 3.8 lbs lost (partial month)
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..3.8 lbs

    Day 19 – 08/01 …..191.4….. Didn’t have much time to eat yesterday and dinner was very late (within 1 hour of bed). No water here since yesterday morning due to well problems. Seal was fixed (???) but no one can get the pump primed. Perhaps the check gauge went out when it was turned off? IDK but this is horrible!

    Day 20 – 08/02 …..189.6….. Thrilled with this number but I must be honest and say that I could be slightly dehydrated. Due to the well problems and no water since Saturday morning, I have had to be a bit stingy with my water usage and intake. This may go back up when the well pump is fixed. Plumber is going to try to get out here this evening. If not, then tomorrow. Ugh!!! In any case, yesterday was a good day overall in the journey. I ate at the top of my calorie allowance due to peanut butter on a plain bagel. After counting carbs for the past few years with no mind to calories, I was S.H.O.C.K.E.D at what the calorie content was when I later logged it. 500 calories for a plain bagel with 3 measured TBSP of Jif creamy peanutbutter! Never will those 2 things go together again and in my mouth at the same time! I was trying to up my protein as my logging shows I have been consistently under in the protein department. I also added yogurt nearly everyday to help boost it. I need to do more. Anyway, I was happy to see a new decade on the scale but I will not trust it until I get to 187 point anything.
    Day 21 – 08/03 …..190.4….. So, I was starving yesterday after a couple of days of weight loss. My body wants it’s fat back! I caved in and ate cheese pizza (no crust). 700 calories worth. However, I stayed within all my goals. I guzzled water with it as the well man got the well flowing again. I always gain after pizza and guzzling water with it sunk me for sure. However, I made my other meals small and healthy to make up for it. 1275 calories in / 2528 calories out. 13,091 total steps. 5.5 total miles, 7 floors, 44 minutes of planned and documented extra exercise, I slept 4 hours 33 minutes last night and my trend weight went down 0.4. My fat percentage according to my scale and verified by trendweight went down 0.1. I am going to work toward getting into the 180’s now that I briefly touched them. My doctor’s appointment is on Thursday (blood glucose and overall checkup). My doctor would be thrilled to see that. I am still happy to report that I haven’t had a severe glucose drop in awhile.
