    "My daughter brought donuts home last night which was a special treat from out of town. I just wish she had brought ONE."

    I know what you mean about this! My coworkers often bring food in and right now I've had to resist donuts and danishes. I've been avoiding the breakroom...

    @OhioLibrarian Such a rare treat for us since we don't have a donut shop or any big box stores like walmart etc. No bakery in our small grocery store either so what a treat! However, that is no excuse for me to turn them into a meal. It's not just the abundant calories, it's the lack of real nutrition too. Anyway, if it was a test, I failed miserably! But thanks for reminding me that I'm not alone in the temptations. I am inspired by the fact that you have been able to resist at times. I mean, not just ANYBODY can resist DANISHES! This is also a head game. I'll have to work on that part of it more. Thanks for inspiring.

    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 March 31, 2022): 199.6
    Goal: 194.6 (Five lb Loss)

    **************************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME************************************

    04/01…...199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.4)….. Not such a great way to start.

    04/02.…..198.6…..(Trend Weight 199.6)….. A very small dinner, no snacks. Very tired last night. Got in more sleep than usual. A good TMI this morning. A lot of good contributing factors to a loss on the scale.

    04/03.…..199.8…..(Trend Weight 199.6}….. Lunch out with a friend yesterday. ½ for lunch and ½ for dinner. Bouncy-bounce.

    04/04.…..198.2…..(Trend Weight 199.5)….. Really no change in behaviors here (though there should be more!) I’m not sure why I go up and down but here it is today. Lowest weight since Mar 14. I’ll take it, shake it and see what I can do with it.

    04/05.…..198.8…..(Trend Weight 199.4)….. My daughter brought donuts home last night which was a special treat from out of town. I just wish she had brought ONE. Today I am planning a big pot of soup for dinner and she is inviting her boyfriend to join us. I will keep portions under control and try to make up for yesterday a bit. Cooking is challenging right now. The stove is in the livingroom sitting on a cement board on the carpet. The kitchen is fully gutted down to studs so dishes are in my bedroom and anticipated food items we may need in the next month or two is upstairs on the landing. Pots & pans on the console style entertainment piece under the LR tv. The back & forth for every spoon or glass is giving me extra steps. It all adds up!

    04/06.…..199.6…..(Trend Weight 199.5)….. Donuts showed up on the scale today. Thank Goodness for all the extra steps and miles yesterday or it could have been worse. Staying diligent today.

    @Msmclane

    I exercise more in order to eat a bit more, so yeah, I eat some of my exercise calories back.
    I aim each day to have 500 in the Green on the MFP end of day tracker.

    I am Dawn. 61, 5'2"
    I joined MFP October 28.18 at 191
    I averaged a 1 pound loss per month, so very slow.

    My ideal healthy weight by plugging in my numbers (height, age, measurements etc.) is 110-118

    I was close to the 120s in February of 2021 at 130.6.
    I was 131.1 in September of 2021. I somehow gained quite a bit since then, but in March of 2022 I did a cleanse to reset my body and eating habits and ended up with a small loss at the end of the month, the first loss in a long time.

    3/31 - 135.2
    4/01 - 137.4 - 2.2 pounds overnight?? I had a healthy and active day yesterday, so hoping that it is just a weird fluctuation. I am still going to use my EW from March as my start weight for this month though. No point (in my mind) of counting a loss if it is not cumulative.
    4/02 - 136.2 - Terrible day eating wise, I was so busy, then stressed, so basically didn't eat all day and then ate a bit but nothing nutritious. I will try to do better today.
    4/03 - 137.0 - Very early weigh in, I feel leaner than that. Up and down is normal for me though. I will get lots of activity in today, my day off, and will have time for healthy food prep.
    4/04 - 136.4 - Not a very good day for nutrition. Calories and activity were good.
    4/05 - 137.6 - ?? Such as it goes. Lots of workouts, good food choices.
    4/06 - 137.2 - Lots of workouts, good food choices, but very long workday and didn't finish dinner until midnight. Tonight will be the same.
