    Thanks @frankwbrown
    You have a healthy and consistent strategy and hey, your Dec weight is still a loss from Nov close (for now at least - realize the toughest days are still in front of us). I'd call that a huge success! Happy Holidays!!

    @JenKindo Happy Onderland!

    @frankwbrown Thanks! I only recently joined MFP and this is the first time I've seen such steady progress (except for one other time in my past but that time doesn't count). I tried to lose weight this week but was over my calorie bank/budget too many times. I keep forgetting my husband's helpful advice to half whatever I dished out for myself, as I keep coming to that conclusion end of day (if I had only taken 1/3 less, or one less of this or that...). We're doing a big move to a new community in a few months and I have a couple of goals related to that deadline.

    @Xellercin Congrats on meeting your goal and finding what works for you!

    @FaithIt365 Don't give up on yourself. You can do this. Just one day at a time, one choice at a time. You are worth it!!!

    Thanks! I realize I never actually posted my highest weight, but I too was obese before, lost it all, slowly, down to a low-healthy weight, and then regained a bit due to illness, injury, and meds like prednisone.

    My latest weight loss effort was a slog and took forever until I started IF, which has been so much easier for me.

    I'm really thrilled to be back where I worked so hard to get before, I didn't have nearly as much to lose this time around, I started at 160, but it was a million times harder to lose the second time around, largely because I'm so inactive due to injury. Good luck on your journey! I hope it goes nice and steady and smooth for you.

    My name is Donna. I am 61 years old, 5' 5" tall. I live in the Midwest of USA. I am in remission for breast cancer, have Type 2 Diabetes, an under active thyroid, a touch of high blood pressure, some osteoporosis and am working to get healthier. I know losing weight and exercising more will help all of these issues.


    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT (FROM August 31, 2021): 186.8
    CHALLENGE ENDING WEIGHT: xxxxx
    CHALLENGE TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS GOAL: Total Loss of 15 pounds to land at 171.8



    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; 150’s


    I TRY TO WEIGH ON THE 1ST AND LAST DAY OF EACH MONTH ALSO. I HAVE MADE THE GOAL OF LOSING A LITTLE MORE IN SEPT AND OCT AND KEEPING IT A LITTLE LESS THROUGH THE NOV AND DEC HOLIDAYS (AND BAKING SEASON.) I THINK THAT 15 POUNDS OVERALL IS A MORE REALISTIC GOAL FOR ME ESPECIALLY SINCE I LIVE IN A VERY SNOWY AND ICY AREA AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND EXERCISE ARE DIFFICULT AFTER OCTOBER 1ST. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT I GET AND STAY AT A HEALTHY WEIGHT DUE TO HEALTH REASONS I WILL SHARE ALONG THE WAY. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! I AM ROOTING FOR YOU AND SUPPORTING YOU ALL 100% WE CAN DO THIS!

    Nov 01…..…..189.4…..(Trend Weight 187.7)…..Pizza, Candy and other Spooky junk for Halloween. Now it’s time to get back on track! I am too dangerously close to getting back into the 190’s.

    Nov 04…..…..189.6…..(Trend Weight 189.1)…..Ouch! Daughter’s birthday celebrations so close to Halloween is a recipe for disaster!

    Nov 11…..…..189.6…..(Trend Weight 188.6)…..I hate this new format. Colorless and boring. It does not promote wanting to join or participate. Lifeless! I vote no! All who agree should contact MFP!

    Nov 18…..…..190.6…..(Trend Weight 189.7)…..Very bad news from Primary Doctor yesterday in regards to my blood work. A1C 11.8 so she will be adding more medication for Type 2 diabetes in conjunction with what I am already taking. Thyroid has gotten worse and my medication will be increased. My sodium is super low and so a medication for that is being added. My LDL cholesterol is bad so she is adding Atorvastatin for help that. What a hot mess! These medications will help, but I know in my heart of hearts that diet and exercise is the healthiest answer to all of this. I’ve got to do better! With all these holidays coming up, it just couldn’t be more challenging! I’m thankful that I’ve made enough improvements in my lifestyle and my weight over the past couple of years to stay in cancer remission as weight was very important to my type of cancer. But I’ve got to roll up my sleeves, there is more work to be done.
    Nov 25…..191.0…..(Trend Weight 189.7)….. Emotional eating which I know helps nothing. Emotional binge for sure. Dinner is Sunday. I’m making something small for me & son and one handyman that is here today. I’ll keep it in better control!

    Nov 30…..189.2…..(Trend Weight 189.7)…..

    Dec 07….. 188.2…..(Trend Weight 189.4)…..
    Dec 14….. 191.6…..(Trend Weight 190.4)….. The death of my brother has really found me spiraling out of control. It has been horrid. Couple that with travel for Christmas shopping and all the cravings that come with being off plan and it’s a recipe for disaster. Hell, I haven’t even started baking yet. I’ve got to get a grip. Nothing will bring him back.

    Dec 21….. 191.4…..(Trend Weight 190.5)….. Another death this week. A friend of 20 years age 55 from an Asthma attack. I had a full-on binge yesterday of BBQ chips and donuts that I bought at the store when I went to get water. It was so bad that I skipped dinner just to off-set the calories. I feel like death warmed over today. I have none of the energy that good foods would have given me. This is just another example of my food killing me, like a poison because of my relationship with it. I’ve got to do better! I know this was emotional eating. Too many death's this month. But it solves nothing!

    Dec 28….. 193.6…..(Trend Weight 191.7)….. Not doing well during the holidays at all.

    Dec 01…..188.7…..(Trend Weight: 189.5)….. My brother passed away today at the age of 54. It was rather sudden but I was caring for him with the help of end-care hospice. I’m a hot mess and have been for a bit. I don’t know how I am going to pull myself together, especially with the holidays here. That’s always a tough time for dieting. I’m doing everything from eating my emotions to bingeing. Nothing will bring him back. I’ve got to get a grip. Please be patient with me, my friends. I’m doing good minutes or moments at a time but it doesn’t last. But I never give up. This reminds me how much my family needs me. I’ve got to get back to the positive changes I need to make. I just need a minute.
