    May Challenge💐

    Hi all my name is Lisa B. I live in N. California. I was at my goal weight which is 135 before Covid and then the world went crazy and now it has been 2 years teleworking and my weight slowly just creeped up and up. Living life in sweatpants every day is HORRIBLE, you don't realize how evil the expandable attires are. My life consisted of working and several mindless trips to the refrig which became my besties for 2 years the unlimited access 24hrs a day my bestie was always willing to provide comfort urg but now I am taking back control.

    Trying figure out why I am not losing is so very frustrating and defeating. I exercise and remain under 1200 calories so I am just not getting what I am missing. I will stick with it and push through but today I weighed and took some aggression out on my scale.

    Heaviest weight: 161
    Current weight: 160

    Goals:
    🌼 45 min exercise a day at minimum
    🌼 Eat healthy
    🌼 Don’t beat up my scale
    🌼 drink 90 oz water daily
    🌼 Stay positive

    May Daily Weight Challenge
    Goals reduce calories and increase activity.
    My weekly goal is to have a lower trend weight than the week before.
    Highest Weight 204 lbs. July 2020
    Lowest Weight 180 lbs. April 2022
    Last weekly trend weight 184.9 lbs
    Thank you members for your support.

    May 01 184 lbs
    May 02 184 lbs
    May 03 184 lbs
    May 04 184 lbs. Wednesday is my normal weigh in. I am thankful for no weight gain. I found April real distressing with the hills and valleys of my weight. My weekly trend weight went from 184.9 to 183.8. So that goal was accomplished. Now to focus on weight reduction.

    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 April 30th): 203.2
    Goal: xxxxx (Five lb Loss) 198.2

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

    05/01…...204.6…..(Trend Weight 202.5)….. April was not good to me. Or maybe, I was not good to April. Yeah, I think that’s it.

    05/02.…..204.6…..(Trend Weight 202.7)….. I had my weight too low yesterday. Typo now fixed. I should have done better but I couldn’t get satiated yesterday. I think my bigger body is fighting for more food so I am going to have to plan more volume with less calories and carbs to get through this. According to Fitbit, I’ve had more sleep last night but I feel hungover. Is there such a thing as a food hangover?

    05/03.…..203.8…..(Trend Weight 202.8}….. I’m grateful for any progress but I know I can do better. I am not doing Keto at this time but I definitely should be watching the carbs a bit more. I need to better keep them in mind when making my choices. That would make a huge difference for my weight and my glucose levels. Now just doing it…….

    05/04.…..203.8…..(Trend Weight 202.9)….. I had a good day of eating yesterday so I expected a drop. I checked my fitbit stats this morning and boy, oh, boy! Was my movement level ever low! Barely over 3000 steps for the day due to lots on online bill paying and many phone calls. That explains it! Out of town tomorrow, a bit of a trip again for my friend's brain scan to determine possible parkinsons. Lots more sitting and meals out. Never good when it's out of town.

    The weight fluctuates a little within the same bracket, but I'm not worried. I've been eating clean and exercising regularly, so it'll go down eventually. One thing I love is how (based on my Fitbit Aria scale) my fat% is steadily going down even if the weight is staying the same. To me that just means my hydration is getting more balanced and my muscles are retaining a little water from having suddenly started to work out after years of inactivity :)

    Scale is good, just in a weird headspace today. Going to try to make enough time to read before bed to make sure it's not burnout.

    💐May Challenge💐

    I am ready for an Mahvelous May too!
    Mary 65 now from Pennsylvania. Goal weight 122 lbs. Was there in 2009/10 and kept it off for about 5 years and got lazy. I do low Carb 15+/- 3 Net Carbs/day(My body seems to hang on to Carbs/not burn them),1000-1200 calories daily, 2 meals on my days off(3) and 3 meals on my work days (4, long hours) and I only exercise on my days off due to the long work days.

    Heaviest weight: 255 lbs, twice :-(

    9/14/20-255 lbs. Started a new job without a micromanager.
    5/3/21-240.5 lbs Emergency Gallbladder surgery
    5/14/21-232.2 lbs. Started MFP, low carb and calorie restricted diet while recovering. Actively trying to lose now.
    6/1/21-228.8 lbs
    7/1/21-222.2 lbs
    8/1/21-212 lbs
    9/1/21-200 lbs
    10/1/21-191.4 lbs
    11/1/21-181.8 lbs
    12/1/21-176.2 lbs
    1/1/22-168 lbs
    2/1/22-157.4 lbs
    3/1/22-155 lbs
    4/1/22-156.4 lbs
    5/1/22-158.8 lbs :-( No way is this actual with all the Elliptical miles Friday, yesterday and stayed way under calories for what I was allotted. Hoping for a whoosh soon. Did Elliptical 300 minutes for 22.3 miles in first session and 54 minutes for 4.2 miles for 26.5 miles total today. Hopefully that gets me heading downward again. (Did long times on Friday 228 minutes and Saturday 240 minutes too.)
    Current weight: 149.8 lbs

    May weight lost so far: 9 lbs

    Daily Goals:

    🌱Drink @ least 90 ounces of water
    🌱Plan meals and log in advance
    🌱Log honestly and consistently
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌱

    May 01- 158.8 lbs. :-( Can't believe this with all the Elliptical miles Friday, yesterday and stayed way under calories for what I was allotted. Hoping for a whoosh soon. Did Elliptical 300 minutes for 22.3 miles in first session and 54 minutes for 4.2 miles for 26.5 miles total today. Hopefully that gets me heading downward again. (Did long times on Friday 228 minutes and Saturday 240 minutes too.)

    Realized I forgot to post yesterday, so posting a 2fer. Had a woosh. Probably, as I thought, water retention from my trip, plane ride and not eating my normal and only casual walking for exercise, due to being away. My previous low, about a month ago was 147.6 lbs, so hopefully I'll get back to that soon.
    May 02- 155.8 lbs
    May 03- 151.6 lbs

    May 02 - 165.6 (Had a great day yesterday. Returned from the lake, picked up my resized rings, shopped for new work clothes that fit, had a nice supper with my husband and Mom and rode the Peloton for 90 minutes.)
    May 03 - 167 (Fun night riding the Peloton, walking my dog, and a bit of TV. Back in office today which makes me feel more crunched for time.)
    May 04 - 167.8 (Another busy work day but I got in a walk at lunch with my husband and had a Peloton ride after work. Making the new schedule work and still finding time to prioritize me.)
