Please join us starting on 2/6, for JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, when we will begin Round 177!

Anyone can join us at anytime during the round.

Join us! If we stay mindful we can do this, you can do this.

Welcome back past members, welcome new members, let's keep each other accountable for another 10 days!

Here is what you do: Post your daily weight and add little comments along the way of how your day went. Post everyday to let us know how you're doing! Copy and paste the days in your response--tell us how much you lost and other non scale victories (NSV) you'd like to share.

FOR NEWBIES - I find it easiest to copy the dates to a document or note in my device and edit it each morning. Then copy and paste to the message board. MFP will return you to the spot on the board where you left off on your previous visit which is nice to know if you like to scan all of the posts.

    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.

    People say keto/LCHF isn’t sustainable. I’ve been doing it for over 4.5 years with amazing results!

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

    My journey … "I May Not Be Where I Want To Be, but I’m Not Where I Use To Be!"
    In 2003 Weighed over 600 lbs.
    2nmriozz84rc.png
    In 2005 Weighed under 400 lbs.
    r3o1lagrbd1i.png
    In 2007 lowest weight after surgery 302lbs
    uzs2w5a7aw1h.png
    My highest weight was 611 in 2003. Weight in 2004 before weight loss surgery was 580. Lowest weight after surgery was 302 in 2007. "I May Not Be Where I Want To Be, but I’m Not Where I Use To Be!"

    I joined MFP on March 27, 2010 weighing in at 388 pounds. I was re-gaining weight and stumbled up on it while trying to get back on track. I was determined never to see 400+ on that scale again for me.

    I have been morbidly obese all my life. I have a lifetime of mental and physical scars from obesity. In October 2004 I had Gastric Bypass surgery. WLS (Weight Loss Surgery) was the best gift that I could and did give to myself.

    Between 2008 and 2010 I gradually gained back 80 of almost 300 pounds lost initially after weight loss surgery. I never reached my goal weight of 200 pounds. I still managed to keep off over 65 percent of the weight I lost which is very good and I am very proud of my accomplishments since 2004. It has literally changed my life for the better on all levels. I am here to lose re-gained weight and to reach my initial goal weight. I am in no hurry. I am taking this one day at a time and I am in it for the long haul.

    Surgery did not fix the head. It is a good tool and the best gift I have given to myself, but it was not the easy way out as many people think. Once the honeymoon period is over after the WLS it is up to the patient to keep the weight off.

    On August 29, 2011-- I was admitted to Intensive Out Patient Eating Disorder Program to learn how to manage my binge eating disorder effectively. The program is wonderful indeed and will be instrumental in me reaching all of my goals. The focus of this program was how to eat and not diet. Weight loss was not a goal of the program. I actually gained 20 pounds in program. But I had to get thru a lot of stuff and my the time I was released I had stopped gaining. I was discharged from program on December 3, 2011.

    My tool is still working for me today. My head is still the issue. SO the struggle continues. I will never beat myself up again. I fight the fine fight faithfully and positively everyday. Because that is what will get me to my goals one day. Even though it may not show up on the scale every day -- Everyday I make progress one way or another just by showing up, waking up and trying.

    Giving up is not an option for me. Perseverance, Patience, & Positive thinking will help me reach my goals…… and the same is true for you too!! :smile: We have the power within us.

    “KAREN YOU HAVE GOT THIS”

    'Consistency is the ONLY key to achieving any desired result'
    MY “WHY’s AND HOW’s CONSISTENT List”:

    I want to be free from diabetes, heart failure, high blood pressure
    I want to walk, hike, shop, explore
    I want to prove ‘YES I CAN’

    I will educate myself on nutrition, prioritize health over body image and/or weight loss.
    I will hold myself accountable, not using any situation of person as a scapegoat
    I will pay attention to what I eat, and keep a food log
    I will stay physically active
    I will keep realistic expectations
    I will accept compliments and decide whether input from others will influence me
    I will learn to recognize portion size, calories, and when I am full
    I will say to myself, “Ok that’s it, I’m done!”
    I will focus on the process of developing good habits, rather than a finite result
    I will do the best I can with the tools I have
    I will say to myself, “KAREN YOU HAVE GOT THIS”
    ……..
    My long term vision is to maintain my weight in the BMI ‘Normal Weight Range’ of 22.7
    Why I want this goal is for managing my heart health and diabetes.
    And to feel enticed to continue hiking and enjoying family and friends.

    Positive actions and reasons:
    1. daily logging of nutrition & water,
    providing visual information to help me choose wisely
    (my goals: 4 veggies, 2 fruit, 64oz water)

    2. weekly movement,
    providing lubricant to my joints to keep them mobile
    (my goals: 90” of cardio, 60” of ST, flexibility of 40”)

    3. daily thanks to God and self,
    providing a relationship/direction with God and reassurance/strength for me

    “Karen YOU HAVE GOT THIS”


    💗 Karen

    Just because Covid restrictions aren’t compulsory doesn’t mean they’re not necessarily.
    People are still dying out there……… and the numbers are on the rise again.
    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷

    February focus:
    maintain weight < 145 (I have been maintaining since July 2019)
    Work on improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale

    I liked this so much I'm borrowing it.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    My goal for 2022 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 (~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)
