    My New(er) car. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to make the pictures smaller. Ford Escape 2018 with lots of bells and whistles I will have to learn.

    In regards to my house in the background, No, I don't like the yellow on my house but I do love the stone. At some point in time I will have it re-sided in a nicer color. Today I primed and painted the new posts on the front porch in white. The old ones were getting yucky on the bottom and I didn't trust it to hold up the portico over the porch this winter when it will be full of snow and ice. I have lots more projects outside yet this summer. More plants to be planted and more mulch to lay. But it's a start for my first spring and summer in the house.

    As far as the car goes, I am not looking forward to the car payment. I'd rather spend it on all the projects the house needs (especially inside) but it was time.....

    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: Lost 15kg!

    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!
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 271.2 - not sure what has caused me to retain some water, maybe lack of sleep contributing. My rings are fitting a little tighter today so I know I'm retaining fluid!
    Day 23: Thurs, 8/5: 269.6 - Yessssss! Hard work and consistency pays off!!
    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 270.7 - a little blip from too much sodium and fat. It will come back off.
    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 271.2 - it was my birthday so I allowed myself to indulge! Unfortunate timing for the end of the week but I'm ok with it.
    4th Week Goal Weight: 270.9
    4th Week Actual Weight: 271.2
    4th Week Weight Lost: 1.1 lbs

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 272.5 - birthday shenanigans playing havoc on my scale. I'm still ok with it for now.
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 272.1 - starting to drop off again which is good!
    Day 28: Tues, 8/10: 272.9 - ate takeaway for dinner, and ate too much.

    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, strength training, 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 (7 day avg 206.1)
    1st Week Weight Loss: +1.2
    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 (7 day avg 205.5)
    2nd Week Weight Loss: 1.7
    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.

Not surprised … pizza for lunch & pasta for dinner. Fished in the morning and it was too hot to walk the dog in the afternoon. Headed back home today.
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3: 204.4 Walked 2.2 miles, long 5+ hr drive, cut and trashed large limb that fell out of neighbor’s tree into my yard while we were gone … plus cut the damage it made on my redbud tree, 1533cal, 81 net carbs, AF, tons of water. Behind on my walking toward 100 mile goal this week so I need to get walking.

Then we went to Pappadeaux’s for a really nice lunch! Changed my plan for dinner … moved salmon night out to next Friday since I had not yet purchased the fish. I was able to take last night’s smoked chicken and make chicken salad wraps to go with our wine for a relaxing TGIF at home!

    @deepwoodslady - You newer car and house look great! My mom's home is yellow and I've always liked how cheerful it is especially on gray or dreary days. I painted my home at the camp aqua/turquoise. Something that my homeowners association in Houston would never allow! Ours at home is some sort of beige with brown brick. I've always wanted a home with stone ... yours is lovely color and type. But you are right ... color is something that you can look forward to changing in the future.
    Love love love your plants and yard especially the little window box!
    Is the back yard steep with walkout basement? We have no basements down here since all it would do is flood.
    Wondering what that roof will look like with lots of snow.

    @deepwoodslady

    Hopefully you will get some walking in during your 2 hour wait between appointments on Thursday.
    Definitely log all of the work that you are doing in your yard and on your house, maybe even just under gardening. So much work and exercise involved, but sooo satisfying.

    I love love love your house and new wheels!!
    Yes, I have a new car payment too, so I understand. Plus I still have the other car and am paying insurance on 2 now.

    I love the yellow, like @Lilylady3k
    It might grow on you.
    Your grounds look fabulous!
    Also great that you have a garage for your snowy clime.

    Wonderful that your clothes are getting so loose : - )
    You are doing fantastic!!

    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 - 738 in the Green
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 132.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the evening shifts and late dinner. 374 in the Green
    Day 23: Thurs, 8/5: 132.8 - was planning some indulgence tonight after work, we'll see. 93 in the Green
    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 134.2 - Had wings last night, but also only 3 hours of sleep and water before weighing at 4am. I'm sure tomorrow's number will be better. Day off today, so will get lots of workouts and yard work done, not another day off until next Thursday. 371 in the Green
    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 134.3 - Wings again 468 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 -
    4th Week Actual Weight: 134.3
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 2861 - not enough to lose a pound

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 136.0 - Double ouch. So hard to lose it, and so quick and easy to put it back on. 675 in the Green
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 135.5 - It was so nice to eat dinner at a normal time. 1248 in the4 Green!!
    Day 28: Tues, 8/10: 132.6 - Ended up with evening shifts after all, on top of day shifts. Burned a tonne yesterday after an unexpected shift. Didn't finish dinner until 11:30pm. 590
    Day 29: Wed, 8/11: 131.7 - Very pleased with this, but will try not to get complacent after the huge jump in weight recently. Glad to see the drop a few days after the big calorie burn. Holding off on ribs for this month so far.

    @Lilylady3k and @dawnbgethealthy Although you can't tell in a one dimensional picture, the yard front and back is very steep. It has a full and very large basement with a nice finished space for my son's apartment. It is not a walk-out. The finished section he uses is somewhere between 600 - 700 sq ft. There are two other areas in the basement unfinished. One will someday become his kitchen, the other will remain for storage. It is already separated with doors etc.

    Yesterday one of my handymen began a major project in the front yard. He is adding steps down the very steep slope from top by garage to bottom by mailbox. Last winter the new driveway stone held all the ice and snow so badly that I had to drive down to my mailbox and drive down to put out my trash. You don't realize these things until you've lived in a house all 4 seasons! I will be making it look very pretty and will likely add flower beds next to it by next year. No broken hips for me!

    I also have a pick-up truck which is still pretty nice. I use it mainly for hauling my supplies etc. I really needed it when I owned and operated my two small motels. I also pay for car insurance on both. Because they are both still very nice with low mileage, it is full coverage and in Michigan that is really expensive! I hate that but what can we do?

    I bought both of my businesses years ago as a single mother (before I met my husband who is now deceased). I am very proud of all that I have accomplished as a single lady. I had no advantage starting out. My family was very poor. I've never had a lawsuit win, a lottery win, or a large life insurance payout. Just pure hard work like so many others. The house is nice but it is very dated on the inside. Ugly really INHO. Over time I will fix all of that. It won't happen overnight, but nothing worthwhile ever does. Thanks for the compliments on what I've accomplished so far. It will be a long time before I have privacy because there is a lot of work to be done, but I will climb my yard and cul-de-sac street as often as the weather allows. I am a work in progress in more ways than one! Again, thanks for all the compliments. I, too, enjoy seeing all of your pics. From gardens to vacation destinations they are all wonderful and they keep our pages alive with color, vibrancy and life. I enjoy learning more about you all!

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

    Day 19 – 08/01 …..191.4….. Trend Weight: 194.6……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….. Trend Weight: 194.1…… 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….. Trend Weight: 193.7……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.
    Day 22 – 08/04 …..191.6….. Trend Weight: 193.5……Decided on an impromptu trip out of town with my son to get him out of the house and to shop for DGD’s 1st birthday in August. Steps inaccurate on tracker because when pushing the cart without arm movement, it doesn’t actually count the steps and I shopped for many hours in many stores and a strip mall. Quiltingjaine recommends putting tracker on ankle during shopping times but mine doesn’t fit around my ankle. I guess that means my legs are still way too thick lol! In any case, my meal was moderate (brought half home for lunch today) but was still way over plan. Arrived home at 10:15 pm due to travel time also. Staying on point today. Doctor appointment tomorrow.
    Day 23 – 08/05 …..191.2….. Trend Weight: 193.3……I was hoping to drop down a little more than this overnight but I can’t get my water intake in as I am conserving what I can. The well went out again yesterday morning. I waited all day for the guy to show up to fix it and he finally texted at 7:30 pm he wasn’t coming afterall. Doctors today and my body is in need of a deep cleaning first! I’m going to hit up the part-time neighbor for shower for me and my son as we are both going to the doctors. I feel like I’m in a nightmare!
    Day 24 – 08/06 …..190.0….. Trend Weight: 193.1……That is an unexpected drop after making some bad choices yesterday. I ate all my calories back from exercise. Although I was in the green, it showed only 79 calories left (I ate about 1690). I must stop eating my emotions! So disgusted with this well situation although he finally came by yesterday evening and got it going even if it is loud and kind of rattling/banging. Now, this afternoon he has cancelled the replacement appointment for this weekend saying his schedule is busier than he thought. He is aiming for next week. I pray this prime on this well pump will keep the water flowing until then. Last time it last about 1 ½ days. My mammogram and oncology appointment down in Ann Arbor Michigan (about 4 hours from home each way) is coming up next Thursday. What I weigh now is very close to what I weighed last time I saw them (pre Covid). Thank goodness I reigned it in. Keeping my weight down is actually key with the type of breast cancer that I have (in remission). All the more reason to just keep going……
    Day 25 – 08/07 …..190.0….. Trend Weight: 192.8……I am hoping to catch sight of the 180’s again. I touched down at 189 point something the other day. I know I can do it again!
    Day 26 – 08/08 …..190.6….. Trend Weight: 192.6……I was raiding the refrigerator at 3:00 AM starving (not a glucose drop). I ended up eating into my exercise calories and was in the red by 46 calories by the time I was finished. I went back into MFP and changed my food log to reflect it for yesterday (even though my original calculations were already posted on the home thread). Is that what I am supposed to do? I am assuming it is so that the record stays accurate. The hunger felt real, but I am famous for self-sabotage too. After a good doctor’s report……. After being so close to the 180’s in my weight yesterday……..Self-Sabotage would be typical for me. Now that I am filled with regret, guilt and shame I will probably have no problem sticking to plan today.
    Day 27 – 08/09 …..189.6….. Trend Weight: 192.3……Happy to be back in the 180’s by a hair. Come on 187 point anything! It is then that I will be confident enough to bid the final farewell to the 190’s.
    Day 28 – 08/10 …..189.6….. Trend Weight: 192.0……Holding onto the 180’s and not letting go! My annual mammogram and Oncologist appointment is Thursday for the breast cancer re-checks. 4 hour drive each way. 2 hours of sitting between the 2 appointments also at the University Hospital. I know there will be meals out that day during travel but I will be back on my pre-prepped home meals on Friday. Cooking for them already! My clothes are getting very loose and my bones are coming back where I once couldn’t find them anymore. It’s a great feeling and a very healthy thing for me, especially in regards to the cancer. I think my Oncologist will be pleased too.
    Day 29 – 08/11 …..189.6….. Trend Weight: 191.8……Third day in a row at the same weight and the same body fat percentage. Way less walking and movement yesterday didn’t help I suppose but I did stay busy on some projects. I’m happy that my overall trend weight and trend fat are still coming down though. I, too, like to track this so I am also going to be adding my trend weights in. Small daily fluctuations do not freak me out if I know I am still maintaining good progress in my trend weights. The trends don’t tend to jump all around and fluctuate like the scale does although mine has been moving down pretty dramatically and steadily due to the over 20 drop since May which has greatly affected it. It will likely level off more when it is closer to matching my actual scale weight.

    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: Lost 15kg!

    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!
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 271.2 - not sure what has caused me to retain some water, maybe lack of sleep contributing. My rings are fitting a little tighter today so I know I'm retaining fluid!
    Day 23: Thurs, 8/5: 269.6 - Yessssss! Hard work and consistency pays off!!
    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 270.7 - a little blip from too much sodium and fat. It will come back off.
    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 271.2 - it was my birthday so I allowed myself to indulge! Unfortunate timing for the end of the week but I'm ok with it.
    4th Week Goal Weight: 270.9
    4th Week Actual Weight: 271.2
    4th Week Weight Lost: 1.1 lbs

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 272.5 - birthday shenanigans playing havoc on my scale. I'm still ok with it for now.
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 272.1 - starting to drop off again which is good!
    Day 28: Tues, 8/10: 272.9 - ate takeaway for dinner, and ate too much.

    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, strength training, 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 (7 day avg 206.1)
    1st Week Weight Loss: +1.2
    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 (7 day avg 205.5)
    2nd Week Weight Loss: 1.7
    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
    3rd Week Actual Weight: 205.4 (7 day avg 205.1)
    3rd Week Weight Loss: +0.9
    Let my low 204s slip away :(

    Day 19: Sun, 8/1: 205.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walked 2.2 miles completing my 100 miles in July walking the dog! Gardening, fishing, 1435 cal, 86 net carbs, AF.
    Day 20: Mon, 8/2: 205.6 @ fishing camp 🎣 Walk .5 miles, fishing/casting for 3 hours and caught nothing, gardening digging up mom’s sago palm pups which is hard work, 1676 cal, 102 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not surprised … pizza for lunch & pasta for dinner. Fished in the morning and it was too hot to walk the dog in the afternoon. Headed back home today.
    Day 21: Tues, 8/3: 204.4 Walked 2.2 miles, long 5+ hr drive, cut and trashed large limb that fell out of neighbor’s tree into my yard while we were gone … plus cut the damage it made on my redbud tree, 1533cal, 81 net carbs, AF, tons of water. Behind on my walking toward 100 mile goal this week so I need to get walking.
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 202.8 Whoosh! Walked 3.1 + 2.2 miles, Bike 30min, 1552 cal, 71 net carbs, AF, guzzling water. Lightning when I got to the pool so delayed swimming laps until Thursday. Over 18000 steps today! All my rings closed and overlapped.
    Day 23: Thurs, 8/5: 202.5 Walked 3.4 + 1 miles, Strength class 1 hr, 1532 cal, 83 net carbs, AF. Over 15.5k steps. Took my DIL out for birthday lunch at Bistro Menil and went to the Menil Art Museum. It is Houston Restaurant Weeks all of August! LOTS of really nice places that have special menus.

    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 202.9 Walked 3 + 1 miles, swam laps 400m, 1682 cal, 83 net carbs, AF.
    🩺 Annual Physical & bloodwork today so fasting this morning.
    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 203.7 Walked 1.3 miles then took the day off from other activity. 1404 cal, 56 net carbs, 2 wine. NOT enough water. DH & I were fasting for physical & bloodwork which went well. Then we went to Pappadeaux’s for a really nice lunch! Changed my plan for dinner … moved salmon night out to next Friday since I had not yet purchased the fish. I was able to take last night’s smoked chicken and make chicken salad wraps to go with our wine for a relaxing TGIF at home!

    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 203.1 Walk 4.75 + .6 miles, Bike 30 min, 1569 cal, 68 net carbs, 3 wine. Tackled a long walk early in the day to make up for my lack of progress toward 100 miles in August AND try to get back down to 202.x.
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 203.2 Walked 1.4 miles, 1180 cal, 55 net carbs, AF. Books books books … reading & listening.

    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 - 738 in the Green
    Day 22: Wed, 8/4: 132.9 - Maybe my body is getting used to the evening shifts and late dinner. 374 in the Green
    Day 23: Thurs, 8/5: 132.8 - was planning some indulgence tonight after work, we'll see. 93 in the Green
    Day 24: Fri, 8/6: 134.2 - Had wings last night, but also only 3 hours of sleep and water before weighing at 4am. I'm sure tomorrow's number will be better. Day off today, so will get lots of workouts and yard work done, not another day off until next Thursday. 371 in the Green
    Day 25: Sat, 8/7: 134.3 - Wings again 468 in the Green

    4th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 -
    4th Week Actual Weight: 134.3
    Calorie Deficit (Green on the Tracker): 2861 - not enough to lose a pound
    Day 26: Sun, 8/8: 136.0 - Double ouch. So hard to lose it, and so quick and easy to put it back on. 675 in the Green
    Day 27: Mon, 8/9: 135.5 - It was so nice to eat dinner at a normal time. 1248 in the4 Green!!
    Day 28: Tues, 8/10: 132.6 - Ended up with evening shifts after all, on top of day shifts. Burned a tonne yesterday after an unexpected shift. Didn't finish dinner until 11:30pm. 590
    Day 29: Wed, 8/11: 131.7 - Very pleased with this, but will try not to get complacent after the huge jump in weight recently. Glad to see the drop a few days after the big calorie burn. Holding off on ribs for this month so far. 407 in the Green
    Day 30: Thurs, 8/12: 132.9 - I basically only had snacks and Mojitos with a friend, no dinner.
    Day 31: Fri, 8/13:
    Day 32: Sat, 8/14:

    5th Week Goal Weight: 131.1 - Aimed for this all last 100, seems a bit ambitious at this point, but going for it anyway
    5th Week Actual Weight:
    Calorie Deficit totals: (Green on the Tracker) Always shooting for an average of 500 per day in the Green - I don't lose weight otherwise, that is just my body.

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

    Day 19 – 08/01 …..191.4….. Trend Weight: 194.6……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….. Trend Weight: 194.1…… 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….. Trend Weight: 193.7……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.
    Day 22 – 08/04 …..191.6….. Trend Weight: 193.5……Decided on an impromptu trip out of town with my son to get him out of the house and to shop for DGD’s 1st birthday in August. Steps inaccurate on tracker because when pushing the cart without arm movement, it doesn’t actually count the steps and I shopped for many hours in many stores and a strip mall. Quiltingjaine recommends putting tracker on ankle during shopping times but mine doesn’t fit around my ankle. I guess that means my legs are still way too thick lol! In any case, my meal was moderate (brought half home for lunch today) but was still way over plan. Arrived home at 10:15 pm due to travel time also. Staying on point today. Doctor appointment tomorrow.
    Day 23 – 08/05 …..191.2….. Trend Weight: 193.3……I was hoping to drop down a little more than this overnight but I can’t get my water intake in as I am conserving what I can. The well went out again yesterday morning. I waited all day for the guy to show up to fix it and he finally texted at 7:30 pm he wasn’t coming afterall. Doctors today and my body is in need of a deep cleaning first! I’m going to hit up the part-time neighbor for shower for me and my son as we are both going to the doctors. I feel like I’m in a nightmare!
    Day 24 – 08/06 …..190.0….. Trend Weight: 193.1……That is an unexpected drop after making some bad choices yesterday. I ate all my calories back from exercise. Although I was in the green, it showed only 79 calories left (I ate about 1690). I must stop eating my emotions! So disgusted with this well situation although he finally came by yesterday evening and got it going even if it is loud and kind of rattling/banging. Now, this afternoon he has cancelled the replacement appointment for this weekend saying his schedule is busier than he thought. He is aiming for next week. I pray this prime on this well pump will keep the water flowing until then. Last time it last about 1 ½ days. My mammogram and oncology appointment down in Ann Arbor Michigan (about 4 hours from home each way) is coming up next Thursday. What I weigh now is very close to what I weighed last time I saw them (pre Covid). Thank goodness I reigned it in. Keeping my weight down is actually key with the type of breast cancer that I have (in remission). All the more reason to just keep going……
    Day 25 – 08/07 …..190.0….. Trend Weight: 192.8……I am hoping to catch sight of the 180’s again. I touched down at 189 point something the other day. I know I can do it again!
    Day 26 – 08/08 …..190.6….. Trend Weight: 192.6……I was raiding the refrigerator at 3:00 AM starving (not a glucose drop). I ended up eating into my exercise calories and was in the red by 46 calories by the time I was finished. I went back into MFP and changed my food log to reflect it for yesterday (even though my original calculations were already posted on the home thread). Is that what I am supposed to do? I am assuming it is so that the record stays accurate. The hunger felt real, but I am famous for self-sabotage too. After a good doctor’s report……. After being so close to the 180’s in my weight yesterday……..Self-Sabotage would be typical for me. Now that I am filled with regret, guilt and shame I will probably have no problem sticking to plan today.
    Day 27 – 08/09 …..189.6….. Trend Weight: 192.3……Happy to be back in the 180’s by a hair. Come on 187 point anything! It is then that I will be confident enough to bid the final farewell to the 190’s.
    Day 28 – 08/10 …..189.6….. Trend Weight: 192.0……Holding onto the 180’s and not letting go! My annual mammogram and Oncologist appointment is Thursday for the breast cancer re-checks. 4 hour drive each way. 2 hours of sitting between the 2 appointments also at the University Hospital. I know there will be meals out that day during travel but I will be back on my pre-prepped home meals on Friday. Cooking for them already! My clothes are getting very loose and my bones are coming back where I once couldn’t find them anymore. It’s a great feeling and a very healthy thing for me, especially in regards to the cancer. I think my Oncologist will be pleased too.
    Day 29 – 08/11 …..189.6….. Trend Weight: 191.8……Third day in a row at the same weight and the same body fat percentage. Way less walking and movement yesterday didn’t help I suppose but I did stay busy on some projects. I’m happy that my overall trend weight and trend fat are still coming down though. I, too, like to track this so I am also going to be adding my trend weights in. Small daily fluctuations do not freak me out if I know I am still maintaining good progress in my trend weights. The trends don’t tend to jump all around and fluctuate like the scale does although mine has been moving down pretty dramatically and steadily due to the over 20 drop since May which has greatly affected it. It will likely level off more when it is closer to matching my actual scale weight.
    Day 30 – 08/12 …..190.0….. (Trend Weight 191.6)…… Weight slightly up due to late dinner and early weigh-in. Traveling today to the cancer center for the annual mamm and check-up. Scale will be up tomorrow but it will only be temporary. Keeping positive thoughts here!
