    Day/Weight/Comment

    1/27 208.4. OMG I can’t believe I keep gaining. I’ve got to get this under control. Traveling for the next few days to see the two moms, always stressful.
    1/28 DNW At my moms house. Ate Chinese and had some treats yesterday, I’m sure my weight won’t be good. Watching carefully today.
    1/29 DNW
    1/30 209.4 Back home after visiting my mom and MIL. Always a gain, between eating the snacks in the house and the stress of dealing with the elderly parents. Back to drinking water and watching what goes in my mouth. Hopefully this will be down tomorrow.
    1/31 209.8
    2/1 209.4
    2/2 208.4
    2/3 207.8 Finally starting back down. Still doing low impact workout. I missed two since 1/1 when we were out of town.
    2/4 210 😳
    2/5 208.6 This has not been a very good round for me. I will try much harder next round.

    Round # 43 for me!
    SW: 373.8 (5100 steps daily step goal, go to bed by 11:30, no eating out or junk food 6 days a week)
    Day/Weight/Comment (previous day steps)
    1/27 373.8 – 5993 steps. Under calories, got steps and walk in and was in the bed on time.
    1/28 374.8 – 5358 steps. Under calories but I still ate terribly. Snacking all day and not hungry and ate back movement calories. No walk so not surprised by gain. And the thing about me when I gain, it takes a minute to drop. But I am good, I know my body. I knew the carbs would show up today. :( I am going to take my calories off the MFP preset calories for my weight and put to 1200 to 1500 calories. I have not decided which one yet. How many of you use MFP recommend calories for your weight? I don’t want to set my calories too low. But I think I am going to start with 1200 and if I need to increase I will. It is snowing here in Chicagoland, and I love watching the snow. Snow is a love hate relationship! Lol And we have had a snowy January so far and more on the way…. :)
    1/29 373.0 :) – 7094 steps. I got in a Leslie Sansone DVD yesterday and a good calorie day with 1200 calories and eating back some exercise calories and some to spare. In bed on time and got over 7 hours of sleep even though I got up in the middle of the night to listen to the end of the finals of the Australian Open between Danielle Collins and Ash Barty. I am going to go to bed early tonight so I can get up about 6:00 to finish the end of the men’s final :)
    1/30 373.0 – 5489 steps. I did get in another workout with DVD. Had another zoom memorial yesterday and today. The memorial today was a high school friend who died age 57 from complications caused from COVID. It was a very nice zoom memorial. Both were very uplifting and encouraging.
    1/31 373.0 – 5534 steps.
    2/01 375.0 – 5152 steps. I have been struggling. Fast food challenge over and no desire to go out and get any. Too much snacking and carbs. Doing a little better today. Logging it all. Back in the red :( Not worried, going to get back on it. Tomorrow is a new day and another Zoom memorial. I am going to take 2 hours personal time to attend. A close friends Mother passed who caught COVID in an assisted living facility.
    2/02 375.0 – 6531 steps. Good day yesterday. Memorial was nice today. I got in a short walk yesterday also.
    2/03 375.0 – 5783 steps.
    2/04 375.0 – 5370 steps. Well, it doesn’t look like I am going to lose this round. ☹ One more day to see. But I am ok with it. Can’t be perfect. I am going to get in a workout today for sure to see if I can at least maintain or lose some of gain.
    2/05 373.0 :) – 5529 steps. So happy with small loss! My goal is to lose 3 pounds each round, but any loss (or even a maintain) is better than a gain :) Especially now at my size. I finally settled on 1500 calories. I will re-evaluate every 25-pound milestone. I will see you all in the next round! Have a great weekend and stay safe!
    Total lost this round: (-0.8)

    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.

    @SModa61 When we used to drive cross country, our scale always went with us. LOL

    I never would be getting away with this if the plane had worked out. I have taken travel scales with me in the past, but they are rather fickle. I love that you did the same @quiltingjaine

    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!

    I’m 5’7, 29 years old, female. I follow a lifting
    program and would like to decrease my body fat while maintaining muscle mass.

    My starting weight in Oct 2021 was 156.6

    Goals: stay in a mild calorie deficit, hit 110-140 grams of protein per day, 20-30 minutes of cardio on lifting days (4xweek, non-work days), complete all 6 programmed strength training sessions during my 4 days off per week

    Previous Posts

    1/27 Did a snatch, renegade row, clean, push-up workout this morning. I interviewed with the surgical department at the hospital closer to me and now I have lots to think about. Back to work tomorrow for 2 days. Leftover egg casserole for lunch. Cabbage soup with seitan for dinner. Pull day for strength with a lot of deadlifts and I started put plenty sore.. wonder how I’ll feel tomorrow afternoon! Protein: 149

    1/28 work 1/2. I updated my goals on mfp to reflect 0.5 loss per week instead of 1 and now my diary is all messed up.. wrong calorie and macro targets on every future day. I looked it up and it appears to have been a known problem since 2015… anyone ever run into this and been able to fix it? I contacted customer support. Husband made a really yummy sweet potato broccoli stew from loveandlemons for dinner. Protein: 132

    1/29 work 2/2. I tried updated my goals again today and it fixed my diary, glad the problem is resolved. Shakshuka for dinner. Protein: 126

    1/30 really nice day outside today. I enjoyed some sunshine and did a push-up, KB swing, squat workout outside and took a walk. Leg day for strength.. my squats have been feeling really good. I did sets of 6 at 205 today. Okonomiyaki for dinner. Protein: 164

    1/31 Another lovely day! Feels like spring and is making me ready to garden. We are expecting snow and ice this week though. I hate driving to work in ice. I interviewed with a job in the cath lab today. I think I might end up staying put though. I really like my boss and 3 12’s just allows for so much scheduling flexibility. I can easily get big chunks of time off and I really appreciate being able to run errands at odd hours on week days without crowds. I’m feeling so good in the gym.. seems like I’m just getting PR after PR. Took a walk, did a devil’s press and box jump workout, and then did a press day. Got sets of 5 bench press at 115 which is good for me. Bench has always been one of my weakest lifts. Protein: 139

    2/1 Last free day before work for 3. Good timing to work 3 in a row with an ice and snow storm coming up for those days 🤪 Jump rope, clean and jerk workout this morning and a walk. Pull day with rack pulls for strength tonight. Went ahead and prepped most of dinner for tomorrow night since my husband prefers to drive my Subaru in the snow and ice. So, he will just stay late at his job and pick me up when I’m done since we work in the same area. Made a brown rice, mushroom, bokchoy, tofu bowl with a miso sauce for dinner tonight. Red lentil falafel pitas for dinner tomorrow. I don’t know how I’m just now getting into Love and Lemons recipes.. so far they’ve been really tasty. Protein: 168

    2/2 work 1/3. Snow arrived. I’ll be solo driving to work tomorrow and it looks like it’ll snow for most of the night. I don’t mind driving in snow when there aren’t a ton of other cars out on the road.. so it should be fine. Glad we prepped tonight’s dinner yesterday! Red lentil falafel pitas. Protein: 130

    2/3 work 2/3. Weighing even earlier than normal for a work day since I’m driving in snow. I always get pretty excited about the Olympics.. ready to go watch some cool snow sports! Polenta with a mushroom sauce and a fried egg. Protein: 133

    2/4 work 3/3. I’m tired 😴 excited to watch the Olympics. Roasted carrot, lentil, arugula salad with tofu. Protein: 121

    SW for 173 (1st round joined) 173
    EW round 175 170.4
    SW 1/27 169.6
    Goal: Aiming to hit 168

    1/27 169.6. Woo hoo!! I've been doing a LWR workout for the last six days. I can feel myself getting a bit  stronger each day.  Yesterday after work I walked my dog and then did my workout. That led to me moving around more after work.  I did the same today. 
    1/28 170.1. Went to visit my parents.
    1/29 DNW
    1/30 DNW
    1/31 170.2 I was really worried about getting on the scale after  a weekend away.  Crisis averted. Will see what the scale says tomorrow.  I added half a scoop of collagen to my coffee and mixed the other half with my pb honey that I spread on my toast. Not bad. That scoop of collagen helps keep me fuller longer.
    2/1 170.9
    2/2 170.2
    2/3 169.4
    2/4  169.0 20 min LWR walking WO. Noticed I haven't done any workouts this week. My son was with me this week. Will find a way to squeeze a quick 7 min WO in. Today I decided to mix in a 1/3 scoop of collagen into my honey I spread on my breakfast toast and it wasn't bad. The other 2/3 I mixed into my coffee. I like that it has 7 g of protein and no fat. Good sub for my normal PB. I still get my 16 g of PB in with an apple for snack. I tried adding collagen to my egg too and it wasn't bad...except the clump I couldn't chew lol. Can't wait for the next round. This has really been helping me.
    2/5 167.5 🙆‍♀️🤸‍♀️

    Total loss round 176 - 2.1.

    Total loss since starting round 173 - 5.5

    Ready for next 10 days!

    You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.

    Female, 5’3”, 61
    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

    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)

    1/27 DNW
    1/28 211.4
    1/29 212.0
    1/30 211.4 Walked 3.9 miles, 1823 cal (-99 red), 100 net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Highly recommend this recipe for a London Broil. I cooked it twice now ... in the oven and grilled and both turn out great. Love the marinade (2-12 hrs). I used Tamari (Japanese form of soy sauce) instead of the Coconut Aminos. Think I’m going to try the marinade out on chicken next.

    1/31 210.1 Walked 3 miles, 1763 cal (-112 red), 65 net carbs, 3 glasses wine. The above marinade works wonders with chicken legs! Completed menu plan and grocery list for this week. Also prepped the Unit 1 for volunteer teaching ESL/LEM (Learn English Ministry).
    2/1 210.2 Rain so no walk, Strength Training 1 hr, 1867 cal (-350 red), 51 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Successful grocery shopping trip this morning led to following through with my menu planning for lunch & dinner! BONUS: I did NOT pick up a Snickers at the checkout when grocery shopping.
    2/2 211.8 Walked 1.5 miles, 2082 cal (-575 red), 164 net carbs, 2 glasses wine + bourbon & diet sprite. Skipped strength training class since I’m teaching English on Tues & Thurs mornings now. I need to find a new exercise schedule that works! Loved my new photography with the cell phone class! Great plan for both lunch & dinner. HOWEVER, the community center gave me a box of fried rice, egg roll and fortune cookie to celebrate lunar new year when I went to class. I took it home and added it to our dinner … which took me into the red for the day.
    2/3 212.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 2033 cal (-569 red), 71 net carbs, Torchy’s Tini. Crazy day driving up early after not sleeping well to babysit granddaughter while my DIL went to doctor, both lunch & dinner dined out, no real exercise … short walk but skipped my strength training class in the evening because I was exhausted. Terrible excuses and the number on the scale is a reflection of my poor choices.
    2/4 210.1 Walked 1.3 miles, 1690 cal (-199 red), 63 net carbs, 1 bourbon & diet sprite. Watched the 2007 movie Waitress on Amazon. Then watched on YouTube the Sara Bareilles concert What’s Inside - Songs From Waitress (music she created for the broadway play). It really gave insight to songs that I’ve heard her sing but didn’t know the background.
    Cold for us in Houston this morning. 29degress wet weather so schools are closed for the day.
    2/5 209.9 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine. Dinner at my daughter’s home.

    At least I didn't disappear this time around. On to the next 10 days.

    I like to track averages due to my wild fluctuations. For the same reason, I like to weigh daily so I can see the lows from time to time. It gives me hope.

    I need to be back here with you all after a 5-week hiatus. I had my scale with me, which only confirmed my need for a disciplined approach.

    I am afraid I have not kept up with reading your posts over the past weeks, so I am hoping all is well with my old friends. I was made aware of the fragility of life when my 61-year-old neighbor / good friend passed away while I was away. Complications from Covid seems to be the reason.

    And hello to those of you who have joined since mid-December.

    1/27: 212.8
    Ok, back at the tracking after a long lazy break from reality. Well, not a total break. I kept one oar in the water at all times regarding work. But you will never convince me that remote working is more efficient than in-person presence at the office. (Take it with a grain of salt because I am the same guy who said computer aided design will never replace hand drafting. Ha!)

    Anyway… I have some work to do on this body of mine. I have my annual holiday-damage-control to do. JGMTD176

    1/28: 213.4
    Yesterday was a day where I chose to eat the comfort food set before me. Pot roast at Rotary lunch, and cake.

    On another note, I dislike winter very much. Going to try to get moving this weekend somehow.

    1/29: 211.8
    Happy Saturday everyone!

    1/30: 211
    The remnants of indulgence are slowly falling away.

    1/31: 215
    Aaaaaand then this just happened. Problem yesterday with eating between snacks.

    2/1: 214.8
    Want to make this a good month!

    Snowstorm yesterday. Lots of snow management activity and lots of comfort food conjured up by the Mrs.

    It’s amazing how I had no time to log all of my food…or was it that I didn’t want to see what kind of damage home made ham and bean soup with cornbread/butter/syrup did.

    Not much of a productive day for the office overall since our parking lot was off-limits to mere mortal vehicles. Good thing we could log in from home. I am back in the office today.

    2/4: 215.2
    Logged all food yesterday. Therefore this is no surprise.

    2/5: 214.0
    Well, this round was pathetic. My morning weigh-ins flip and flop like a fresh caught fish on the deck of a boat. I guess I should quit trying to make snaccidents work as a viable lifestyle. (I love cookies and bars. DW has been making them for neighbors and friends and I like to do the quality control sampling.)
