    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 159-154

    07/30 …..194.2….. ENDING WEIGHT LAST ROUND
    07/31 …..192.4 ….. Goodbye water retention! A nice whoosh after being up shedding water all night. I got 6 hours and 10 minutes of sleep which is AMAZING for me so even that didn't interfere with wonderful sleep! Yesterday I was just under allotted calories (I don’t eat back exercise). I didn’t get very much movement in and my water intake was low again. A so-so day but the scale rewarded me for my efforts at home (even though my travel habits are still yet to be desired). Welcome to all the newbies. You will love it here! Thanks Jaine for another round!

    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!

    08/02 …..189.6 ….. Wow! I did not expect that even though yesterday was a good day plan-wise. However, no water since Saturday morning due to the well pump problems. I contacted a local plumber who is not sure if he can come today or tomorrow. Ugg. Anyway, I am being sparse on all water usage to save for toilet so I am probably a bit dehydrated. I don’t know that this weight will stick. I am never confident in a new weight bracket until I hit a certain number within it. If I get to 187 point anything, I will feel it is real. Had some peanut butter last night to up my protein. OMGosh. I’ve been counting carbs so long I didn’t realize how many calories were in there! That put me at the top of my calorie allowance and I couldn’t have a snack later. I don’t think I will do that again anytime soon!

    08/03 …..190.4 ….. Gorgeous beautiful clean water flowing from my well again. This uptick is from some massive rehydrating and that cheese pizza last night (both at the same time!). I threw away the crust and kept my calories at 1275 with 503 in the green. So this is likely the water weight and I am hopeful that I can actually dip back into the 180’s soon! When I picked the pizza up from the convenience store (pizza shop was closed), I carried around a bag of little Debbie donuts for dessert (which I put back and didn’t buy). I also put the icecream back into the freezer. And that cheese Danish went right back on the shelf after I carried it around for 5 minutes waiting on the pizza. I held each item close to my heart and longed for them individually or together. But I decided not to self-sabotage and I am so glad I was strong enough. I kept the pizza at 700 calories and made up for it later to stay within goal. That is my NSV and I’m pretty darn proud of it!

    08/04 …..191.6 ….. I ended up going out of town yesterday to do some shopping for DGD 1st birthday coming up. Also some building supplies for drywall project. Got my son out of the house and had a nice but high calorie dinner. Today I woke up tired and unrefreshed. However, I will try to get in more movement, drink more water and watch my diet more carefully. It may take a few days but this will come back down.

    08/05 …..191.2 ….. Still fighting some water retention from the travel but this looked better on the scale. Well stopped working again yesterday morning so all day yesterday was sheer hell. Doctors appointments today and no easy way to be clean. Part-time neighbor is here visiting next door. I’m going to hit him up for some shower for me and son. This sux!

    08/06 …..191.0 ….. Great doctor’s report yesterday. My A1C went from 13.7 down to 9.4 since my May appointment. My Dr. was thrilled. I go back next month for another check. My weight was down 21 pounds from my May appointment. Another good news: The dealership delivered my new(er) vehicle today to me. I love it! I’m hoping it will do as well in the winter months as my last one. Bad news: Although water is still running so far (well man got it going yesterday evening) it is clammering and clanking and he doesn’t think it will hold up. We are planning a new well pump next week. At first he said this weekend, then texted the change. Praying water will keep flowing until then. My University Hospital oncology appointment and mammogram appointment is next Thursday. I am watching extra carefully everything I eat and do until then. Weight is key to the type of cancer that I have (in remission). I want them to know I am trying really hard to do my part.

    08/07 …..190.0 ….. Happily it’s still going back down. I still have water and I haven’t seen the bat so all is well today in this tiny little Northern Michigan USA town.

    08/08 …..190.6 ….. I hate typing my weight this morning in the color Oh-So-Sad-Blue but that is what I do when any gain is actually something I caused. I was so hungry at 3:00 AM that I went back to the fridge and warmed up my dinner leftovers meant for lunch today. That put me in the red on my MFP food logging by 46 calories after eating all my exercise calories back. I got such a good doctors report and then I got so close to the 180’s by weighing in at 190.0 yesterday I know this was self-sabotage. I do it often. I wonder why I have to ruin it for myself and create more challenges for myself everytime I am near success? Why can’t I just let myself succeed or be happy? BTW, I went back in this morning and changed my food log for yesterday after my late-night meal. Is that what I am supposed to do, even after it’s been posted on the home thread? How do all of you handle this? Also, I would love to hear all thoughts on self-sabotage. I’m still down over 3 pounds this round. I am going to work on my better diet and lifestyle today. I want to finish strong. No self-sabotage today if I've got ANYTHING to say about it!

    08/09 …..xxxxx …..

    If I eat after midnight I enter it in the new day's log and am then able to adjust that days eating to "accomodate" the late night eating; don't know if that is what should be done, but it seems it's the only way to "manage" it!!

    I tried on my size 22 jeans last night and they were really big. Not so big they’ll fall down, but it was a good way to measure some of my progress. I’m into my size 20’s. :)

    Yesss, I have been doing that with winter clearance I bought in smaller sizes to see if they fit now, as well as buying summer clearance for next year in smaller sizes. I will admit though, it is HARD to get rid of my clothes that are too big. I went through the house with a cute jumper I'd never worn and thought I could atleast one wear--my family let me know right quick that I needed to change :disappointed: Enjoy and continued success!
