    Hi there! I’m Athena, I’ve been doing Jill’s challenges since October and have lost 10 pounds so far. What works for me is mindfully eating for my diet and working out for my mental health.

    March weight lost so far: 1

    Daily Goals:

    Morning. I am back home and found this group helpful. Been away for 3 months. Is there going to be an April Daily Weigh in Challenge? I would like to join if I welcomed back.

    🌱MarchChallenge🌱

    Heaviest weight: 293 (1/28/21)
    Current weight: 169.8
    March weight lost so far: 6.6

    Daily Goals:

    🌱64 oz water
    🌱At least 7.5 hours sleep
    🌱Intentional exercise of at least 20 minutes daily
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal and track every single bite

    March 01 - 176.4 (The first day of March is here with the sun shining bright. Looking forward to a lunchtime walk and an after work Peloton ride.)
    March 02 - 176.2 (And we're off! The Peloton ride yesterday was fantastic as I redid my FTP test and saw big improvements. I am dragging a bit to get on the bike after work but I'm just going to go down there and get it done!)
    March 03 - 176.4 (Snow and cold is back. Instead of my lunchtime walk I did my shoveling. I rode the Peloton before work... my new zones after my FTP test will take some getting used to! Felt like great exercise. Hockey game out tonight will consist of unknown food + drink.)
    March 04 - 173.4 (Fun time at the hockey game and only went 68 calories over my plan which was great considering the opportunity that was on the table to go way overboard. My dad gets in today for 10 day visit so my normal routine will be slightly disrupted.)
    March 05 - 174 (Woke up early and PR'd on the Peloton for my 60 minute time. Off to see The Batman this afternoon.)
    March 06 - 174 (Sun is shining. Looking to walk today and ride my Peloton. Also going to my friend's kid's 3rd birthday party.)
    March 07 - 173.2 (Peloton ride and walk are done. My husband is making a few delicious proteins on the BBQ. Life is good.)
    March 08 - 172.6 (Sunshine filled day but lots of ice on the sidewalks. Still managed to get out for two chilly walks. I missed my Peloton ride this morning so I may end up taking a rest day off the bike if I can't find a good opportunity to get on tonight with my Dad being here right now.)
    March 09 - 171.2 (Started the day with a super hard Peloton ride and then I've been busy with work since. Did slip out for a walk at lunch. I have a social meal with coworkers tonight that I'll have little control of the food for. It will be great company!)
    March 10 - 170.6 (Off work today to spend some time with my dad and brother. Celebrating my dog's second birthday tonight with a family supper.)
    March 11 - 170.8 (Weather is warming again which feels so nice. Today's exercise was to focus on hitting my 10,000 steps, which I've exceeded already. Looking forward to spending more quality time with Dad this weekend before he goes back home on Monday.)
    March 12 - 169.8 (Long ride for the week done first thing and now I'm enjoying a hot tub in the sun. Spring feels so close!!! Off to Banff for an overnight later today.)
    March 13 - 170.6 (Chose to use our downtime at the hotel wisely to walk around the town of Banff twice. Had a great time with family and didn't overdo it at the buffet dinner.)
    March 14 - 171.8 (My dad flew home this morning so it's quiet again in the house. Weather is nice today so my husband and I are going for a second walk after work.)
    March 15 - 172.4 (Work is going to be very busy these next couple of weeks. Keeping centered, focusing on my good habits. Excited that spring is around the corner.)
    March 16 - 173.4 (Feeling a bit tired with work and some personal life stuff. Husband and I are going to go out for a walk or light bike ride here which I'm really looking forward to.)
    March 17 - 172.8 (Sick.)
    March 18 - 171.6 (Didn't sleep very well due to illness. Need to get through the workday and then it'll be a weekend of rest for me.)
    March 19 - 170.6 (No change here, still sick but happy work isn't a factor for a couple days now at least. Just in bed with Netflix, water, and magazines. I am noticing a lot of dizziness and vertigo so I am going to see if I can nap in a bit.)
    March 20 - 167.4 (First day in a healthy BMI comes on a day that no one would ever use to describe me as healthy, oh the irony.. lol. Enjoy the first day of spring all!)
    March 21 - 167.4 (Did part of my day of work today. Focusing on the wellness aspects I can manage right now - hydration and food.)
    March 22 - 167.8 (Tried a very short walk today. My husband is sick now too so things are pretty quiet around here.)
    March 23 - 168 (Salmon plans for supper and leftovers for lunch. Going to try a slightly longer walk today and see how I do.)
    March 24 - 168.4 (Turning the corner and hoping things are back to normal here fairly soon. Had a great chat with a high school friend tonight.)
    March 25 - 168.2 (Feeling more like my old self today! Hooray. Happy Friday all.)
    March 26 - 166.8 (Excited to get back on the Peloton today and see how I feel after being sick the last while.)
    March 27 - 168.4 (Had a great first ride back on the Peloton yesterday. Looking forward to getting out of the house today for some outdoor time.)
    March 28 - 169.6 (First 60 minute Peloton ride after being sick and I pushed for a PR. Also took my wedding rings in to be resized as they are too loose now. My husband did the same. Feels so great to have that measure of progress that we've made in the last year.)
    March 29 - 170.4 (Got a bit of snow overnight that will melt, so I'll likely shift my walk back to after work. Either way, I have that and a Peloton ride on the docket for today.)
    March 30 - 169.8 (Did a 75 minute long ride on the Peloton and PR'd that as well. Off to Ontario after work tonight for a week.)

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    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



    Starting Weight (from February 28th): 198.2
    Goal: 193.2 (Five lb Loss)

    03/22.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 198.4)….. Golden Corral for dinner during travel. I am aiming for a slim day today.

    03/23.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 198.5)….. One pound down today which is probably excess water from the travel/restaurant weight. I did okay yesterday diet-wise. I made some good choices but there is still lots of room for improvement.

    03/24.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 198.6)….. No change today. Diet was okay until the snacking. Snacks lower in calorie but too many. However, I made an actual effort to get in my 10,000 steps and I am proud of the progress there. Getting in movement and exercise has been almost impossible and had definitely made my efforts more difficult. Gotta eat so gotta burn calories every day!
    03/25.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 198.7)….. I did horribly yesterday after grocery shopping for the wrong things. Treats for others turned into treats for me. I hope to grow some willpower and make today better.

    03/26.…..199.2…..(Trend Weight 198.8)…… I resolved an issue with my daughter (who is currently staying with me along with my 4 yr old DGS), so I am feeling a little bit better emotionally but it is still fragile. Trying not to eat every emotion.

    03/27.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.0)…… My DGS’ 14th birthday yesterday. Party held out of town so some travel involved (about 90 minutes each way). It was held at a pizza parlor. Of course I ate the Pizza and a piece of the cake (no ice cream). Bump up on the scale. Too much sitting yesterday, I need to get some movement in today but it won’t be outside. Dangerously and Bitterly cold!

    03/28.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.1)…… 3 meals instead of 2 but snacks were better.

    03/29.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.2)…… So close to where I just don’t want to be again. So far from where I need to be. More changes needed.

    03/30.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.2)…… I’m not doing well enough to make any big differences. I’ve got to watch the carbs way more than I am right now.


    03/31.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……

    I'm Beth, I'm back, I'm fat and I'm tired of myself. So... I've been doing challenges for awhile but for the last 5 months I've totally lost my way, even with that. As of last week, I'm now closer to 64 than 63. I'm mom to adult twingles. I enjoy riding my bike, used to enjoy "running" until I got lonely. I'm not a super-extrovert, but I like to have someone to talk to sometimes and nobody I know is as slow as I am. Same kind of goes with biking. My bike and I are outclassed in every way. And I've turned into a whiny little *kitten* the past few days. So, two of my new goals are to get out of my funk and to stop using food as a crutch for everything that doesn't seem to be going my way (like cars, emotions, rent, etc).

    My regular goals include (from most difficult to the easiest)
    🚦 Getting started
    🥤 Drinking more water than diet soda
    🥅 Staying within my calorie limits
    📚 Making sure I get some “me time”
    😅🚶‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♀️ Exercising more
    📔 Tracking every meal
    ⚖️ Weighing daily is a given for me, so this will be the easiest one for me. My primary goal right now is just go DOWN again.

    Highest Weight: Somewhere between 227-230... I don't know. I avoided the scale.
    Return to MFP after ~ 5-6 year absence (June 11, 2020) = 216.9
    Lowest weight since I started in June 2020 = 177.4 (9/19/21) - been climbing ever since...
    Final weight from last month's challenge (February 28, 2022) = 200.2
    Starting weight for this challenge (March 1, 2022) = 199.8

    March 01- ⚖️ 199.8 (-0.4 from yesterday) - 🚶‍♀️📚 - didn't track dinner. I know what I ate, and it put me way over. Starting the month off with a bang.
    March 02- ⚖️ 200.8 (+1.0) - 🚶‍♀️📚📔
    March 03 - ⚖️ 200.8 (+0.0) - 🚶‍♀️📚📔
    March 04 - ⚖️ 200.6 (+0.0) - 🚶‍♀️📚 - I met Cary Elwes tonight. *swoon* and *squeeeee* (Yes, I'm old... but I'm still a fangirl of certain movies/shows. The Princess Bride is one of them. Hahaha). He is handsome, charming, funny, kind, and came across as a genuinely nice and likeable man. I also watched The Princess Bride in the 92 year old theater where I saw my first movie ever ("That Darn Cat!") in 1965. It was a wonderful end to a generally s****y day.
    March 05 - ⚖️ 200.2 (+0.0) - 📚 - Yeah, today was another generally s****y day... without the wonderful ending.
    March 06 - ⚖️ 200.4 (+0.2) - 🚶‍♀️📚 - blah.
    March 07 - ⚖️ 199.8 (-0.6) - 🚶‍♀️📚📔
    March 08 - ⚖️ 201.0 (+1.2)
    March 09 - ⚖️ 200.8 (-0.2)
    March 10 - ⚖️ ???? I know I weighed myself. Running late and forgot to log it. Thinking back, it was around 201.6 or so (written 3/13/22)
    March 11 - ⚖️ 201.0 (+0.2 up from 3/9/22 or -0.6 from what I think yesterday's weight might have been)
    March 12 - ⚖️ 201.6 (+0.6)
    March 13 - ⚖️ 201.2 (-0.4)
    March 14 - ⚖️ 201.2 (-0.4)
    March 15 - ⚖️ 202.4 (+1.2)
    March 16 - ⚖️ 202.2 (-0.2)
    March 17 ☘️ - ⚖️ 202.2 (-0.0)
    March 18 - ⚖️ 201.8 (-0.4)
    March 19 - ⚖️ 202.8 (-1.0)
    March 20 First day of Spring! 🌷 - ⚖️ 203.2 (+0.4)
    March 21 - ⚖️ 202.6 (-0.6)
    March 22 - ⚖️ 203.3 (+0.7)
    March 23 - ⚖️ 202.6 (-0.7)
    March 24 - ⚖️ 203.0 (+0.3)
    March 25 - ⚖️ 204.6 (+1.6)
    March 26 - ⚖️ 202.8 (-1.8) - Seriously bouncing around here and it doesn't make sese to me, but there it is.
    March 27 - ⚖️ 204.2 (+1.4)
    March 28 - ⚖️ 203.0 (-1.2)
    March 29 - ⚖️ 203.8 (+0.8)
    March 30 - ⚖️ 204.4 (+0.6) - been sick for the last 3 days - not Covid, just a cold - but it sucks.

    Hi there! I’m Athena, I’ve been doing Jill’s challenges since October and have lost 10 pounds so far. What works for me is mindfully eating for my diet and working out for my mental health.

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    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



    Starting Weight (from February 28th): 198.2
    Goal: 193.2 (Five lb Loss)

    03/22.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 198.4)….. Golden Corral for dinner during travel. I am aiming for a slim day today.

    03/23.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 198.5)….. One pound down today which is probably excess water from the travel/restaurant weight. I did okay yesterday diet-wise. I made some good choices but there is still lots of room for improvement.

    03/24.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 198.6)….. No change today. Diet was okay until the snacking. Snacks lower in calorie but too many. However, I made an actual effort to get in my 10,000 steps and I am proud of the progress there. Getting in movement and exercise has been almost impossible and had definitely made my efforts more difficult. Gotta eat so gotta burn calories every day!
    03/25.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 198.7)….. I did horribly yesterday after grocery shopping for the wrong things. Treats for others turned into treats for me. I hope to grow some willpower and make today better.

    03/26.…..199.2…..(Trend Weight 198.8)…… I resolved an issue with my daughter (who is currently staying with me along with my 4 yr old DGS), so I am feeling a little bit better emotionally but it is still fragile. Trying not to eat every emotion.

    03/27.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.0)…… My DGS’ 14th birthday yesterday. Party held out of town so some travel involved (about 90 minutes each way). It was held at a pizza parlor. Of course I ate the Pizza and a piece of the cake (no ice cream). Bump up on the scale. Too much sitting yesterday, I need to get some movement in today but it won’t be outside. Dangerously and Bitterly cold!

    03/28.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.1)…… 3 meals instead of 2 but snacks were better.

    03/29.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.2)…… So close to where I just don’t want to be again. So far from where I need to be. More changes needed.

    03/30.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.2)…… I’m not doing well enough to make any big differences. I’ve got to watch the carbs way more than I am right now.


    03/31.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.3)…… Kitchen remodel is in full swing. Ripping down ceiling today in kitchen, dining area and hallway. Blown in insulation is MESSY. I went out to dinner with a friend last night. Extra calories but lots of extra movement yesterday so I hope it evened out and doesn’t show up on the scale in the next day or two. Epic fail this month!

    Heaviest weight: 293 (1/28/21)
    Current weight: 169.8
    March weight lost so far: 6.6

    Daily Goals:

    🌱64 oz water
    🌱At least 7.5 hours sleep
    🌱Intentional exercise of at least 20 minutes daily
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal and track every single bite

    March 01 - 176.4 (The first day of March is here with the sun shining bright. Looking forward to a lunchtime walk and an after work Peloton ride.)
    March 02 - 176.2 (And we're off! The Peloton ride yesterday was fantastic as I redid my FTP test and saw big improvements. I am dragging a bit to get on the bike after work but I'm just going to go down there and get it done!)
    March 03 - 176.4 (Snow and cold is back. Instead of my lunchtime walk I did my shoveling. I rode the Peloton before work... my new zones after my FTP test will take some getting used to! Felt like great exercise. Hockey game out tonight will consist of unknown food + drink.)
    March 04 - 173.4 (Fun time at the hockey game and only went 68 calories over my plan which was great considering the opportunity that was on the table to go way overboard. My dad gets in today for 10 day visit so my normal routine will be slightly disrupted.)
    March 05 - 174 (Woke up early and PR'd on the Peloton for my 60 minute time. Off to see The Batman this afternoon.)
    March 06 - 174 (Sun is shining. Looking to walk today and ride my Peloton. Also going to my friend's kid's 3rd birthday party.)
    March 07 - 173.2 (Peloton ride and walk are done. My husband is making a few delicious proteins on the BBQ. Life is good.)
    March 08 - 172.6 (Sunshine filled day but lots of ice on the sidewalks. Still managed to get out for two chilly walks. I missed my Peloton ride this morning so I may end up taking a rest day off the bike if I can't find a good opportunity to get on tonight with my Dad being here right now.)
    March 09 - 171.2 (Started the day with a super hard Peloton ride and then I've been busy with work since. Did slip out for a walk at lunch. I have a social meal with coworkers tonight that I'll have little control of the food for. It will be great company!)
    March 10 - 170.6 (Off work today to spend some time with my dad and brother. Celebrating my dog's second birthday tonight with a family supper.)
    March 11 - 170.8 (Weather is warming again which feels so nice. Today's exercise was to focus on hitting my 10,000 steps, which I've exceeded already. Looking forward to spending more quality time with Dad this weekend before he goes back home on Monday.)
    March 12 - 169.8 (Long ride for the week done first thing and now I'm enjoying a hot tub in the sun. Spring feels so close!!! Off to Banff for an overnight later today.)
    March 13 - 170.6 (Chose to use our downtime at the hotel wisely to walk around the town of Banff twice. Had a great time with family and didn't overdo it at the buffet dinner.)
    March 14 - 171.8 (My dad flew home this morning so it's quiet again in the house. Weather is nice today so my husband and I are going for a second walk after work.)
    March 15 - 172.4 (Work is going to be very busy these next couple of weeks. Keeping centered, focusing on my good habits. Excited that spring is around the corner.)
    March 16 - 173.4 (Feeling a bit tired with work and some personal life stuff. Husband and I are going to go out for a walk or light bike ride here which I'm really looking forward to.)
    March 17 - 172.8 (Sick.)
    March 18 - 171.6 (Didn't sleep very well due to illness. Need to get through the workday and then it'll be a weekend of rest for me.)
    March 19 - 170.6 (No change here, still sick but happy work isn't a factor for a couple days now at least. Just in bed with Netflix, water, and magazines. I am noticing a lot of dizziness and vertigo so I am going to see if I can nap in a bit.)
    March 20 - 167.4 (First day in a healthy BMI comes on a day that no one would ever use to describe me as healthy, oh the irony.. lol. Enjoy the first day of spring all!)
    March 21 - 167.4 (Did part of my day of work today. Focusing on the wellness aspects I can manage right now - hydration and food.)
    March 22 - 167.8 (Tried a very short walk today. My husband is sick now too so things are pretty quiet around here.)
    March 23 - 168 (Salmon plans for supper and leftovers for lunch. Going to try a slightly longer walk today and see how I do.)
    March 24 - 168.4 (Turning the corner and hoping things are back to normal here fairly soon. Had a great chat with a high school friend tonight.)
    March 25 - 168.2 (Feeling more like my old self today! Hooray. Happy Friday all.)
    March 26 - 166.8 (Excited to get back on the Peloton today and see how I feel after being sick the last while.)
    March 27 - 168.4 (Had a great first ride back on the Peloton yesterday. Looking forward to getting out of the house today for some outdoor time.)
    March 28 - 169.6 (First 60 minute Peloton ride after being sick and I pushed for a PR. Also took my wedding rings in to be resized as they are too loose now. My husband did the same. Feels so great to have that measure of progress that we've made in the last year.)
    March 29 - 170.4 (Got a bit of snow overnight that will melt, so I'll likely shift my walk back to after work. Either way, I have that and a Peloton ride on the docket for today.)
    March 30 - 169.8 (Did a 75 minute long ride on the Peloton and PR'd that as well. Off to Ontario after work tonight for a week.)
    March 31 - DNW (First full day in Ontario since 2019, got less than 5 hours sleep so I'm a bit tired but excited to see my mother in law tonight.)

    Still doing my Elliptical on my off days but I have been eating more carbs, not every day, than I had been restricting myself to earlier and you can see the results. So basically just maintaining this month instead of losing. :-( Need to get back to my more dedicated self. And now to go back and read what has been going on with everyone since March 15th.
