    I have checked out and gained weight during this round of 100 days. Hurt my knee 4 weeks ago and ended up not doing my daily walks, not going to my strength training class, not tracking, basically giving up. That is never ever a good attitude! Then DH & I got covid this past week along with the rest of my family including my new granddaughter 4 months and my sister immune comprised. Everyone is doing okay but it has been hard. I was the only anti symptomatic (only a headache for 1 day). The littlest one recovered the fastest with only a stuffy nose for 3 days (we think). So I helped care for her since she has lots of demands and also wants to play/attention.

    Starting back today on my weight loss journey starting at a whopping 218 lbs :) Went for a 3 mile walk this morning. Grocery shopped and menu planned. Entered my food journal this morning for the entire day.

    Looking to be in the groove before we start our next round of 100 days!

    @Lilylady3k Welcome back. I am glad to hear you are all going to be okay after Covid! There are always starts and stop, hills and valleys, twists and turns to our journey. Oh, but if it could only be a straight line! Let us both remember, it's not how we start (and restart), it's how we finish! Glad to "see" you again!

    WEEK 13 LOSS OR GAIN: 2.6 lbs GAINED

    Weight Loss in April:……………….. 3.6 GAINED
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..8.0 lbs GAINED


    Day 92…..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.


    Day 93…..05/02…..204.6…..(Trend weight 202.7) 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?


    Day 94…..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…….


    Day 95…..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.



    Day 96…..05/05…..203.8…..(Trend weight 203.0) Weigh in was about 5 hours early as I prepare for travel this morning. 3 days in a row with the same weight. Hmmm. Too bad my trend weight wouldn’t stay the same. It just keeps going up, up, up.



    Day 97…..05/06…..203.4…..(Trend weight 203.0) A shocking drop today when I thought it would be way up. I ate at a Golden Corral yesterday during the long travel which means a lot of food for me due to variety. The medical test took 7 hours so lots of sitting in the hospital waiting for friend. The drive was several hours each way. Needless to say, all sitting and little activity. But I was so exhausted last night that I actually slept about 7 hours (instead of my usual 4). And then this weight drop. It HAS to be related. Everything else lent itself to a gain. Wow! I wish I required more sleep EVERY day! Another observation: this drop came after 3 days of staying exactly the same, which, in itself is unusual. Paying attention here!


    Day 98…..05/07…..201.0…..(Trend weight 202.8) Yay, trend weight down from 203.0 and 2.4 lbs down on the scale. I felt pretty week yesterday. I think sugar was up from stress. Having trouble with my primary handyman (the slow one) so I’m going to have to replace him. Only 3200 steps yesterday but, of course, my appetite never suffers. I found myself eating a little more healthy when my daughter brought home a rotissary chicken and bread cut into teeny tiny little slices. A much small quantity than usual. Pay attention Donna! Remember, you can’t outrun the fork! Less food works

    WEEK 14 LOSS OR GAIN: 2.2 lb LOSS (yay! Finally!)

    Day 99…..05/08…..xxxxx…..(Trend weight xxxxx)
    Day 100…..05/09…..(Final Weight In)……xxxxx……(trend weight xxxxx)

    @deepwoodslady
    Interesting that you lost weight after getting a full night's sleep. From everything I have read, our bodies burn fat during sleep, which purportedly should be 7-8 hours for body health and fat burning. Hmm.
    So sorry that you have had trouble with your slow handyman. You said that he did a good job. On the bright side, if you get a new one that will work faster and during a normal schedule you can get some of your life back, carve out some Donna time.

    @Lilylady3k
    OMGosh!! Terrible that Covid got all of you, especially the baby!!! Glad that the Matriarch was not symptomatic though, so that you could help everyone out.

    I am Dawn.
    I have gained weight the last few 100s
    Time to turn that around

    61 years old, 5'2"
    Highest weight 207
    Ultimate goal weight 110-115
    This is my 9th round on this forum, I joined it at 158.6


    5th Week Goal Weight: 135
    5th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5074 - My usual activity, but less calories in since it is really tough to get more calories when we are eating "clean".

    6th Week Goal Weight: 132
    6th Week Actual Weight: 139.2
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 3642 - Enough to lose a pound, but gained almost 4.

    7th Week Goal Weight: 135
    7th Week Actual Weight: 137.0
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4791 - more than enough to lose a pound

    8th Week Goal Weight: 135.0
    8th Week Actual Weight: 136.8 (started week at 138.8)
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4335, enough to lose a pound and I did

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.2 (ambitious)
    9th Week Actual Weight: 136.2 - Started the week at 137.2, so I'll take it even though I hit 135.2 this week.
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4448 - enough to lose a pound and I did

    10th Week Goal Weight: 135.0
    10th Week Actual Weight: 135.4. 137.0 was my start to the week.
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4483 - enough to lose a pound and I did

    11th Week Goal Weight: 134.8
    11th Week Actual Weight: 136.0 - touching the 135s every week, but not firmly back there yet. I really don't want to weigh more than my birthday weight from last September on my next birthday. That was 131.1 Lots of work ahead to get back or exceed that. Started the week at 136.4
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5036 - Very active week, more than enough to lose a pound


    12th Week Goal Weight: 135.8
    12th Week Actual Weight: 136.8 - same as the start of the week
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5084 more than enough to lose a pound

    13th Week Goal Weight:
    13th Week Actual Weight: 135.0 - hit 134.2 this week
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5520, which works out to 778 per day average thanks to spring gardening and digging. Definitely enough to lose a pound.

    Day 92: Sun, 5/1: 136.6 - Not sure how I could have gained, I had a good clean day. Raining this morning, I can't continue the potato garden when it is wet, or go on trails. I will get lots of little workouts/songs done during the day.
    Day 93: Mon, 5/2: 136.8 - Wrong direction. I need to be patient, I have been "good".
    Day 94: Tues, 5/3: 135.6 - I prefer this type of fluctuation : - )
    Day 95: Wed, 5/4: 135.8 - 5 days left after this? Yikes.
    Day 96: Thurs, 5/5: 137.0 - ?? That makes no sense. Going out Friday night, so was hoping for a cushion. I guess that Friday morning's weigh could be different.
    Day 97: Fri, 5/6: 136.4 - So much intense calorie burn this week with the digging in the yard etc. Tonight is a night out with indulgences, it could go either way. I think that my boy is rebelling a bit, even though I fed it very good food.
    Day 98: Sat, 5/7: 135.4 - Okay, guess that I should be more patient. Can't believe that we are almost at the end of another 100!!!

    14th Week Goal Weight: 133.9 - ambitious, but after hitting 134.2 the previous week maybe I can do it.
    14th Week Actual Weight: 135.4 - Heavy calorie burn week due to getting the garden in.
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: I will fill this in after today's numbers.

    Day 99: Sun, 5/8:
    Day 100: Mon, 5/9:

    15th Week Goal Weight:
    15th Week Actual Weight:
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker

    100 Days of Accountability 1/30-5/9
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 61, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 212 (1/29)
    Challenge Goal: <200
    History & Goals
    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.

    2022 SW: 209 BMI 37.0 (1/1/2022)
    UGW: 165 BMI 29.2 Overweight NOT Obese

    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * Onederland: 199

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150's

    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 (3 AF days per week; ~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 1: Sun, 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.
    https://www.wholesomeyum.com/london-broil/#What_Is_London_Broil
    Day 2: Mon, 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).Day 3: Tues, 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.
    Day 4: Wed, 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.
    Day 5: Thurs, 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.
    Day 6: Fri, 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.
    Day 7: Sat, 2/5: 209.9 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine. Dinner at my daughter’s home. Requested to bring dessert so made lemon raspberry cupcakes for Fri & Sat night.

    1st Week Goal Weight: <210
    1st Week Actual Weight:209.9
    1st Week Weight Loss: 2.1
    Cold & wet weather kept me from exercising as much plus the volunteer teaching that overlaps with my exercise class. But those are just excuses … I can do much better with the meals, snacks and exercise. No choice on the meals Fri & Sat night but I did do well with portion control! I was the only one that didn’t go back for seconds.

    Day 8: Sun, 2/6: 211.0 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 blackberry liquor w/ club soda + 1 glass wine. Lunch at restaurant and then dinner at our friend’s home.
    Day 9: Mon, 2/7: 212.1 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. All the lemon raspberry cupcakes are now consumed! That was a yummy but terrible diet killer. Ate ~2-3 each day … Fri, Sat & Sun. Tried out a fun recipe Supreme Pizza (no crust) in a cast iron skillet. DH loved it too. I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger. https://lowcarbquick.com/deep-dish-pizza-casserole-keto
    Day 10: Tues, 2/8: 212.1 Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Accomplished a lot of to dos that have been on my list for a month … serviced car, submitted paperwork to HOA for window & siding replacement, dog to vet, etc etc.
    Day 11: Wed, 2/9: 212.4 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 12: Thurs, 2/10: 211.4 Walked 2.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lunch w/ DD. Purchased way too many cookies at the bakery and the grocery store! What was I thinking? Ate at least half a dozen.
    Day 13: Fri, 2/11: 211.9 Walked 2.9 + .8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Outside of volunteer teaching English … what did I accomplish? Definitely ate the rest of the cookies which was not helpful!
    Day 14: Sat, 2/12: 213.3 Strength Training 1 hr, No walk … lunch with DD, DIL and granddaughter, late afternoon drive with DH & our dog with the windows down on a beautiful day, happy hour glass of wine at 4pm and people watched. Too many snacks in the evening and not enough will power … total wine for the day 4 glasses.

    2nd Week Goal Weight: <210
    2ndWeek Actual Weight: 213.3
    2nd Week Weight GAIN: 3.4
    The I don't give a dxxx attitude has got to stop. No more buying bakery cookies and eating a dozen. No more gobbling down chips at lunch and then snacking on them after dinner too. Eating out almost every day is also killing my good intentions. Mentally I'm a mess when it comes to wanting to lose the weight and it shows on the scale. I've gained back everything I lost in 2021.
    Made my menu for this week. Plan to grocery shop today and put healthier items in the pantry. Also need to get back to more exercise ... slacking off on the walking because I'm driving into town more often to meet up with my daughter and daughter-in-law for lunch multiple days. No excuse ... I could still walk on these days.


    Day 15: Sun: 2/13: 213.0 No exercise but busy all day meal planning, groceries, making decorations for baby shower, reading, visiting, etc. ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 16: Mon: 2/14: 212.1 Walked 2.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Super Bowl and did fairly well food wise … since I brought the veggies & dips and boiled shrimp. Dinner grilled hamburger no bun.
    Day 17: Tues: 2/15: 213.5 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Wed: 2/16: 210.5 SICK (sinus infection tested negative for covid) all day Tuesday. No exercise. Lots of sleep. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    Day 19: Thurs: 2/17: 211.0 Walked .9 miles. Started my normal walk but then it started to rain. ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. Worked on my long to do list and led book club at a new restaurant we wanted to try out. Mexican food and it looks like it will be a popular place for our group in the future.
    Day 20: Fri: 2/18: 211.9 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not a great eating day. Frozen pizza for lunch and then a pot pie for dinner. I did snack on bell pepper strips and carrots with black bean hummus as a snack.
    Day 21: Sat: 2/19: 211.4 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My son & DIL drove in from Austin to show us their new puppy. So much energy and you have to watch them all the time. But it was a wonderful socialization & intro to another dog since ours is calm and loving. They got a doberman w/ floppy ears and we have a standard poodle. Explosion of toys everywhere!

    Day 22: Sun: 2/20: 212.1 Walked 2.9 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Completely lost my voice due to sinus infection.

    Day 24: Tues: 2/22: 213.8 Walked 2.8 miles, missed my Strength Training class since travel day. AF at book club in the evening but ate the entire meal and did not half it like I should. Still suffering from sinus infection. :(
    Day 25: Wed: 2/23: DNW Walked .6 miles. AF! Taught class with very little vocal … which really makes it difficult for the adult students to understand me in the Learn English Ministry. Today we get my daughter’s dogs (2 golden doodles) while she and her husband go on vacation to celebrate her 30th birthday. How/When did I get old enough to have kids in their 30s? No getting enough sleep. This past week with the sinuses has made it very difficult to lie down and sleep. I’m a walking zombie and very much out of my routine of meal planning and exercise.
    Day 26: Thurs: 2/24: 112.4 No exercise … cold outside and now I have 3 large dogs which is harder to walk by myself. EXCUSES! Worked a hard puzzle all day that has been on my dining room table since Christmas. I gave myself a goal to finish it this week. I should give myself a few other health related goals! AF!
    Day 27: Fri: 2/25: 213.4 Walked 1.2 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Bundled up … DH & I got out and walked the 3 dogs :) Teaching ESL and working my puzzle.

    Day 30: Mon, 2/28: 215.8 Walked 1.7, miles, AF. Made cookies Sunday and DH & I ate them ALL on Sunday and Monday. Self sabotage!

    For Lent I’m committed to walk 100 miles in March (usual target but I’ve not done it since October), 1 strength training class in person and 1-2 virtual classes per week, no alcohol, journal my food, water over diet cokes, and NO snickers at the grocery store!
    Day 34: Fri, 3/4: 215.2 Walked 1 + 1.3 miles, gardened, 1759 cal (-180 red), 77 net carbs, AF. Went to the grocery store twice today and did NOT buy a snickers. The desire was there but my promise to myself won out.

Focusing this week on journaling everything and drinking more water … creating those good habits that lead to success. Oh grocery store and no snickers when I checked out! That is 3 trips to the grocery store in 2 days. I really had a conversation (battle) going in my head but I've passed on the snickers so far this week.
    Day 37: Mon, 3/7: 215.5 Walked 1.8 miles through River Oaks neighborhood on the Azalea Trail event with my daughter and her mother inlaw. 11700 steps. 1934 cal (-476 red), 113 net carbs, AF.

    Day 39: Wed, 3/9: 215.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 7400 steps, 2110 cal (-626 red), 133 net carbs, AF. BBQ for lunch & Mexican for dinner but I think the goldfish snacking really did me in.

Not bad choices eating out with friend at a new Italian restaurant. I kept it simple! One spinach manicotti and a side house salad with vinaigrette dressing. Avoided the basket of fresh bread which is hard but noticed that my friend also did not touch it. Executed planned dinner without a hitch as well.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 212.7 Walked .5 miles in park after lunch and before eye doctor appt instead of sitting in car! Strength Training 1 hr. 1593 cal (27 green), 56 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Not Keto but pushing for low net carbs between 50-100 daily and the weight is coming down gradually without all the extra sugar and carbs + drinking my water. Now if I can just keep it up. Adding daily vitamins back into my daily routine of better habits.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 213.6 No walk, but did garden … fertilizing the yard, weeding the veggie bed. Grocery shopped to make sure I have healthy options. However there is now Easter candy in the house. Yep I have 3 adult children that are married and I bought it for them. I give them the Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs usually … next weekend (not this weekend) we have an evening couples baby shower for my DD & her husband then Sunday a family crawfish boil. Bringing it to the crawfish boil … so I need to keep myself out of the bags this week! Tasted 2 Thursday. Now I need to move on! 1658 cal (-286 red), 81 net carbs, 3 glasses of wine.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2: 214.8 Walked 1 + 3 miles, 1700 cal (9 green), 86 net carbs (included 5 Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs ARGHHH), 2 glasses wine. I felt from all the sugar … hope I learned my lesson. Some of the lack of will power might be from starting my day at 3am because I couldn’t sleep due to the coughing. Got some different allergy meds to try out at the pharmacy.

    Day 64: Sun, 4/3: 215.0 No walk, plant shopping and then lots of gardening instead. 1940 cal (-259 red), 161 net carbs. I did really good on the eating front until my sister invited us over for dinner. Then it was a carb & wine fest with pasta, pork piccata, zipper cream peas and 4 glasses of wine. That meal I estimated to be over 1000 cal and over 100 net carbs alone!
    Day 65: Mon, 4/4: 215.5 Walked 1.5 miles, bought more plants and cleaned up the front beds, gardening. 1246 cal (588 green), 69 net carbs, AF.
    Day 66: Tues, 4/5: 214.4 No walk. Strength Training 1 hr, 1480 cal (37 green), 98 net carbs, 1.5 glasses wine. Really busy day. Listed my mom’s home for sale by owner, first beginner Spanish class, beginner refresh and advanced photography glass, leftovers for both lunch & dinner and then got my strength training class via Zoom in the evening.

    WEEK 13 LOSS OR GAIN: 2.6 lbs GAINED

    Weight Loss in April:……………….. 3.6 GAINED
    Total Accumulated Weight Loss…..8.0 lbs GAINED


    Day 92…..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.


    Day 93…..05/02…..204.6…..(Trend weight 202.7) 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?


    Day 94…..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…….


    Day 95…..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.



    Day 96…..05/05…..203.8…..(Trend weight 203.0) Weigh in was about 5 hours early as I prepare for travel this morning. 3 days in a row with the same weight. Hmmm. Too bad my trend weight wouldn’t stay the same. It just keeps going up, up, up.



    Day 97…..05/06…..203.4…..(Trend weight 203.0) A shocking drop today when I thought it would be way up. I ate at a Golden Corral yesterday during the long travel which means a lot of food for me due to variety. The medical test took 7 hours so lots of sitting in the hospital waiting for friend. The drive was several hours each way. Needless to say, all sitting and little activity. But I was so exhausted last night that I actually slept about 7 hours (instead of my usual 4). And then this weight drop. It HAS to be related. Everything else lent itself to a gain. Wow! I wish I required more sleep EVERY day! Another observation: this drop came after 3 days of staying exactly the same, which, in itself is unusual. Paying attention here!


    Day 98…..05/07…..201.0…..(Trend weight 202.8) Yay, trend weight down from 203.0 and 2.4 lbs down on the scale. I felt pretty week yesterday. I think sugar was up from stress. Having trouble with my primary handyman (the slow one) so I’m going to have to replace him. Only 3200 steps yesterday but, of course, my appetite never suffers. I found myself eating a little more healthy when my daughter brought home a rotissary chicken and bread cut into teeny tiny little slices. A much small quantity than usual. Pay attention Donna! Remember, you can’t outrun the fork! Less food works!

    WEEK 14 LOSS OR GAIN: 2.2 lb LOSS (yay! Finally!)

    Day 99…..05/08…..201.0…..(Trend weight 202.7) Happy Mother’s Day everyone! Weight stayed the same which is okay after a big drop yesterday. Trend weight still trending down so I’m very happy. It gives me hope. I hope you all will enjoy a beautiful day. I will be taken out for dinner but will try to choose wisely. Ah, so many flowers delivered to me by our new florist in the next town. What thoughtful kids I have!

    @Lilylady3k Welcome back.. sorry to hear COVID ran through the family but glad to hear people are on the mend

    @deepwoodslady Mind sharing why the change with your handyman? I'm sure that will be disrupting but like @dawnbgethealthy said hopefully it'll be a change for the better

    How is this 100 days already almost over?????

    @ashleycarole86 Apparently he refused to pay his rent where he lives (his wife has income too) so he is being evicted. He is moving 8 miles down the road but says he won't be able to afford the gas to come to work without a substantial raise. How nice that my kitchen is empty and not able to be used when he claims he needs more money! I am paying him fairly, especially for his quality of work and work ethic. Feels like blackmail. So I've already found another person to take his place. They started yesterday. I hope this one goes well. It is very difficult to find skilled labor in this small town. I'm very disappointed but trying to remain hopeful.

    I am Dawn.
    I have gained weight the last few 100s
    Time to turn that around

    61 years old, 5'2"
    Highest weight 207
    Ultimate goal weight 110-115
    This is my 9th round on this forum, I joined it at 158.6


    5th Week Goal Weight: 135
    5th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5074 - My usual activity, but less calories in since it is really tough to get more calories when we are eating "clean".

    6th Week Goal Weight: 132
    6th Week Actual Weight: 139.2
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 3642 - Enough to lose a pound, but gained almost 4.

    7th Week Goal Weight: 135
    7th Week Actual Weight: 137.0
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4791 - more than enough to lose a pound

    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4335, enough to lose a pound and I did

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.2 (ambitious)

    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4483 - enough to lose a pound and I did

    11th Week Goal Weight: 134.8
    11th Week Actual Weight: 136.0 - touching the 135s every week, but not firmly back there yet. I really don't want to weigh more than my birthday weight from last September on my next birthday. That was 131.1 Lots of work ahead to get back or exceed that. Started the week at 136.4
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5036 - Very active week, more than enough to lose a pound

    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5520, which works out to 778 per day average thanks to spring gardening and digging. Definitely enough to lose a pound.


    14th Week Goal Weight: 133.9 - ambitious, but after hitting 134.2 the previous week maybe I can do it.
    14th Week Actual Weight: 135.4 - Heavy calorie burn week due to getting the garden in.

    15th Week Actual Weight:

    @deepwoodslady - Wow asking for a raise in the middle of a project ... hmmm. Curious ... Is he also the one that brought his wife and kids over to hang out while you fed them as he worked?
    I'm glad you found an alternative option!
    Good luck with your project! I hope the end is insight soon.

    @ashleycarole86 - Thanks for the warm welcome as I return!

    So we are all self quarantined for this lovely Mother's Day. But everyone is doing well!

    @dawnbgethealthy - DH is smoking 2 racks of St. Louis ribs today ... and we have no kids here to share them with ... guess we'll be eating them for a while! Wish you could join us as I know you love ribs!

    100 Days of Accountability 1/30-5/9
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 61, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 212 (1/29)
    Challenge Goal: <200
    History & Goals
    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    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
    2021 SW: 212 BMI 37.6 (1/1/2021) NOTE: Low 201.1 in August 2021
    2022 SW: 209 BMI 37.0 (1/1/2022)
    UGW: 165 BMI 29.2 Overweight NOT Obese
    🎯 Mini Goals & Weight:
    * Prior to Oct roadtrip damage: 205
    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * Onederland: 199

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150's

    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 (3 AF days per week; ~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)

    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Day 1: Sun, 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.
    https://www.wholesomeyum.com/london-broil/#What_Is_London_Broil
    Day 2: Mon, 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).Day 3: Tues, 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.
    Day 4: Wed, 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.
    Day 5: Thurs, 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.
    Day 6: Fri, 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.
    Day 7: Sat, 2/5: 209.9 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine. Dinner at my daughter’s home. Requested to bring dessert so made lemon raspberry cupcakes for Fri & Sat night.

    1st Week Goal Weight: <210
    1st Week Actual Weight:209.9
    1st Week Weight Loss: 2.1
    Cold & wet weather kept me from exercising as much plus the volunteer teaching that overlaps with my exercise class. But those are just excuses … I can do much better with the meals, snacks and exercise. No choice on the meals Fri & Sat night but I did do well with portion control! I was the only one that didn’t go back for seconds.

    Day 8: Sun, 2/6: 211.0 Walked 3.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 blackberry liquor w/ club soda + 1 glass wine. Lunch at restaurant and then dinner at our friend’s home.
    Day 9: Mon, 2/7: 212.1 Walked 3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. All the lemon raspberry cupcakes are now consumed! That was a yummy but terrible diet killer. Ate ~2-3 each day … Fri, Sat & Sun. Tried out a fun recipe Supreme Pizza (no crust) in a cast iron skillet. DH loved it too. I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger. https://lowcarbquick.com/deep-dish-pizza-casserole-keto
    Day 10: Tues, 2/8: 212.1 Walked 1 mile, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Accomplished a lot of to dos that have been on my list for a month … serviced car, submitted paperwork to HOA for window & siding replacement, dog to vet, etc etc.
    Day 11: Wed, 2/9: 212.4 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 12: Thurs, 2/10: 211.4 Walked 2.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Lunch w/ DD. Purchased way too many cookies at the bakery and the grocery store! What was I thinking? Ate at least half a dozen.
    Day 13: Fri, 2/11: 211.9 Walked 2.9 + .8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Outside of volunteer teaching English … what did I accomplish? Definitely ate the rest of the cookies which was not helpful!
    Day 14: Sat, 2/12: 213.3 Strength Training 1 hr, No walk … lunch with DD, DIL and granddaughter, late afternoon drive with DH & our dog with the windows down on a beautiful day, happy hour glass of wine at 4pm and people watched. Too many snacks in the evening and not enough will power … total wine for the day 4 glasses.

    2nd Week Weight GAIN: 3.4
    The I don't give a dxxx attitude has got to stop. No more buying bakery cookies and eating a dozen. No more gobbling down chips at lunch and then snacking on them after dinner too. Eating out almost every day is also killing my good intentions. Mentally I'm a mess when it comes to wanting to lose the weight and it shows on the scale. I've gained back everything I lost in 2021.
    Made my menu for this week. Plan to grocery shop today and put healthier items in the pantry. Also need to get back to more exercise ... slacking off on the walking because I'm driving into town more often to meet up with my daughter and daughter-in-law for lunch multiple days. No excuse ... I could still walk on these days.


    Day 15: Sun: 2/13: 213.0 No exercise but busy all day meal planning, groceries, making decorations for baby shower, reading, visiting, etc. ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine.
    Day 16: Mon: 2/14: 212.1 Walked 2.8 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Super Bowl and did fairly well food wise … since I brought the veggies & dips and boiled shrimp. Dinner grilled hamburger no bun.
    Day 17: Tues: 2/15: 213.5 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 glass wine.
    Day 18: Wed: 2/16: 210.5 SICK (sinus infection tested negative for covid) all day Tuesday. No exercise. Lots of sleep. ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    Day 19: Thurs: 2/17: 211.0 Walked .9 miles. Started my normal walk but then it started to rain. ? cal, ? net carbs, 1 margarita. Worked on my long to do list and led book club at a new restaurant we wanted to try out. Mexican food and it looks like it will be a popular place for our group in the future.
    Day 20: Fri: 2/18: 211.9 Walked 2.9 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not a great eating day. Frozen pizza for lunch and then a pot pie for dinner. I did snack on bell pepper strips and carrots with black bean hummus as a snack.
    Day 21: Sat: 2/19: 211.4 No walk, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. My son & DIL drove in from Austin to show us their new puppy. So much energy and you have to watch them all the time. But it was a wonderful socialization & intro to another dog since ours is calm and loving. They got a doberman w/ floppy ears and we have a standard poodle. Explosion of toys everywhere!

    Day 22: Sun: 2/20: 212.1 Walked 2.9 + 1.3 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Completely lost my voice due to sinus infection. Took another covid PCR like test using CUE to ensure that DH and I do not have covid before leaving this morning to Baton Rouge. Did not want to expose everyone since there will be 3 sets of great grandparents, 3 sets of grandparents and lots of children under age 9 at the baptism.
    Day 23: Mon: 2/21: DNW No exercise. Travel day for granddaughter’s baptism in Baton Rouge. Lots of cookies. 1 Bloody Mary @ brunch; 2 wine @ dinner
    Day 24: Tues: 2/22: 213.8 Walked 2.8 miles, missed my Strength Training class since travel day. AF at book club in the evening but ate the entire meal and did not half it like I should. Still suffering from sinus infection. :(
    Day 25: Wed: 2/23: DNW Walked .6 miles. AF! Taught class with very little vocal … which really makes it difficult for the adult students to understand me in the Learn English Ministry. Today we get my daughter’s dogs (2 golden doodles) while she and her husband go on vacation to celebrate her 30th birthday. How/When did I get old enough to have kids in their 30s? No getting enough sleep. This past week with the sinuses has made it very difficult to lie down and sleep. I’m a walking zombie and very much out of my routine of meal planning and exercise.
    Day 26: Thurs: 2/24: 112.4 No exercise … cold outside and now I have 3 large dogs which is harder to walk by myself. EXCUSES! Worked a hard puzzle all day that has been on my dining room table since Christmas. I gave myself a goal to finish it this week. I should give myself a few other health related goals! AF!
    Day 27: Fri: 2/25: 213.4 Walked 1.2 miles, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF. Bundled up … DH & I got out and walked the 3 dogs :) Teaching ESL and working my puzzle. I called in reinforcements to help with the puzzle .. bribed my sister with red beans & rice + corn bread. Watched Free Guy on Disney. That was a fun movie.
    Day 28: Sat: 2/26: 212.4 Walked 1.2 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2 wine.

    Day 30: Mon, 2/28: 215.8 Walked 1.7, miles, AF. Made cookies Sunday and DH & I ate them ALL on Sunday and Monday. Self sabotage!
    Day 31: Tues, 3/1: 215.4 Walked 2.9 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 2 wine.
    Day 32: Wed, 3/2: 215.0 Walked 1.7 + 1 miles, 19800 steps, 3 wine celebrating Mardi Gras.
    Day 33: Thurs, 3/3: 214.1 Walked 3 + 3.2 miles, 11200 steps, Strength Training 1 hr, ? cal, ? net carbs, AF.
    For Lent I’m committed to walk 100 miles in March (usual target but I’ve not done it since October), 1 strength training class in person and 1-2 virtual classes per week, no alcohol, journal my food, water over diet cokes, and NO snickers at the grocery store!
    Day 34: Fri, 3/4: 215.2 Walked 1 + 1.3 miles, gardened, 1759 cal (-180 red), 77 net carbs, AF. Went to the grocery store twice today and did NOT buy a snickers. The desire was there but my promise to myself won out.
    Day 35: Sat, 3/5: 214.2 Walked 1.8 + .7 + .7 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 12000 steps, 1637 cal (-22 red), 160 net carbs, AF. Need to start drinking more water! I’ve not had a Diet Coke but still only getting around 60oz water … need to up that game!

    5th Week Goal Weight: < 214
    5th Week Actual Weight: 214.2
    5th Week Weight GAIN: 1.8

    Day 36: Sun, 3/6: 214.1 Walked 3 + 1.2 +.7 miles, 16500 steps, 1678 cal (170 green ), 110 net carbs, 1 wine. LSU baseball game in Minute Maid Stadium. Focusing this week on journaling everything and drinking more water … creating those good habits that lead to success. Oh grocery store and no snickers when I checked out! That is 3 trips to the grocery store in 2 days. I really had a conversation (battle) going in my head but I've passed on the snickers so far this week.
    Day 37: Mon, 3/7: 215.5 Walked 1.8 miles through River Oaks neighborhood on the Azalea Trail event with my daughter and her mother inlaw. 11700 steps. 1934 cal (-476 red), 113 net carbs, AF. Large BBQ dinner for my son, his wife & my sister … way too full. On top of that my daughter gave us lots of cake leftover from her crawfish boil … which I regret eating.
    Day 38: Tues, 3/8: 214.2 Walked 1.3 + .6 miles, 7000 steps, 1644 cal (-99 red), 130 net carbs, AF. I retired in Jan 2019. Spent the day on expenses in 2021 and a review compared to 2019 & 2020 and how we are doing in 2022 … as part of understanding our personal finances before DH pulls the plug and joins me in early retirement.
    Day 39: Wed, 3/9: 215.2 Walked 1.3 miles, 7400 steps, 2110 cal (-626 red), 133 net carbs, AF. BBQ for lunch & Mexican for dinner but I think the goldfish snacking really did me in.
    Day 40: Thurs, 3/10: 214.8 Walked 3.4 +1 miles, Strength Training 1 hr, 1920 cal (—79 red), 110 net carbs, AF.
    Day 41: Fri, 3/11: 214.5 @ 3:30am, 213.4 @ 8:00am Walked 2.9 miles, 2158 cal (-503 red), 156 net carbs, AF. Shopped at Target and caved … bought a snickers at checkout. What is with this bad habit of mine that I only acquired last Nov? The battle is real. :( Couldn’t sleep … another bad habit … waking up too early in the morning for no good reason.

Then walked to the library to drop off a book. Beautiful day. THEN rested the knee. Think I’ll take off tomorrow and not exercise since I really don’t want to push it … hobbling a little this evening.
    Day 60: Wed, 3/30: 213.4 Walked 1 mile taking it easy on my right knee which I twisted on the long walk Sunday, 1677 cal (-244 red), 99 net carbs, 2 glasses wine. Not bad choices eating out with friend at a new Italian restaurant. I kept it simple! One spinach manicotti and a side house salad with vinaigrette dressing. Avoided the basket of fresh bread which is hard but noticed that my friend also did not touch it. Executed planned dinner without a hitch as well.
    Day 61: Thurs, 3/31: 212.7 Walked .5 miles in park after lunch and before eye doctor appt instead of sitting in car! Strength Training 1 hr. 1593 cal (27 green), 56 net carbs, 1 glass wine. Not Keto but pushing for low net carbs between 50-100 daily and the weight is coming down gradually without all the extra sugar and carbs + drinking my water. Now if I can just keep it up. Adding daily vitamins back into my daily routine of better habits.
    Day 62: Fri, 4/1: 213.6 No walk, but did garden … fertilizing the yard, weeding the veggie bed. Grocery shopped to make sure I have healthy options. However there is now Easter candy in the house. Yep I have 3 adult children that are married and I bought it for them. I give them the Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs usually … next weekend (not this weekend) we have an evening couples baby shower for my DD & her husband then Sunday a family crawfish boil. Bringing it to the crawfish boil … so I need to keep myself out of the bags this week! Tasted 2 Thursday. Now I need to move on! 1658 cal (-286 red), 81 net carbs, 3 glasses of wine.
    Day 63: Sat, 4/2: 214.8 Walked 1 + 3 miles, 1700 cal (9 green), 86 net carbs (included 5 Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs ARGHHH), 2 glasses wine. I felt from all the sugar … hope I learned my lesson. Some of the lack of will power might be from starting my day at 3am because I couldn’t sleep due to the coughing. Got some different allergy meds to try out at the pharmacy.

    @deepwoodslady - Wow asking for a raise in the middle of a project ... hmmm. Curious ... Is he also the one that brought his wife and kids over to hang out while you fed them as he worked?
    I'm glad you found an alternative option!
    Good luck with your project! I hope the end is insight soon.

    @ashleycarole86 - Thanks for the warm welcome as I return!

    So we are all self quarantined for this lovely Mother's Day. But everyone is doing well!

    @dawnbgethealthy - DH is smoking 2 racks of St. Louis ribs today ... and we have no kids here to share them with ... guess we'll be eating them for a while! Wish you could join us as I know you love ribs!

    @Lilylady3k No, this is not the handyman with the family. I still have him for the project. He and his family will be over today and there is a serious lack of seating and drywall sand all over. Ugh. I'll get through it.

    Day 99…..05/08…..201.0…..(Trend weight 202.7) Happy Mother’s Day everyone! Weight stayed the same which is okay after a big drop yesterday. Trend weight still trending down so I’m very happy. It gives me hope. I hope you all will enjoy a beautiful day. I will be taken out for dinner but will try to choose wisely. Ah, so many flowers delivered to me by our new florist in the next town. What thoughtful kids I have!


    Day 100…..05/09…..(Final Weight In)……200.8……(trend weight 202.5) I just couldn’t get full last night! Luckily I had a good day full of mindful choices which ended up offsetting it. Down 0.2 is better than the gain I expected. Especially on Mother’s Day! I’ll be watching the scale, sometimes it creeps up later! Back to my 4 hours of sleep last night but I woke up feeling okay. So…..Clearly I am way over my starting weight for this round. That is disappointing to say the least. I usually do better in good weather so I’m hoping the next challenge will prove my resolve to get better and BE better.

    I am Dawn.
    I have gained weight the last few 100s
    Time to turn that around

    61 years old, 5'2"
    Highest weight 207
    Ultimate goal weight 110-115
    This is my 9th round on this forum, I joined it at 158.6


    5th Week Goal Weight: 135
    5th Week Actual Weight: 135.8
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5074 - My usual activity, but less calories in since it is really tough to get more calories when we are eating "clean".

    6th Week Goal Weight: 132
    6th Week Actual Weight: 139.2
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 3642 - Enough to lose a pound, but gained almost 4.

    7th Week Goal Weight: 135
    7th Week Actual Weight: 137.0
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4791 - more than enough to lose a pound

    8th Week Goal Weight: 135.0
    8th Week Actual Weight: 136.8 (started week at 138.8)
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4335, enough to lose a pound and I did

    9th Week Goal Weight: 134.2 (ambitious)
    9th Week Actual Weight: 136.2 - Started the week at 137.2, so I'll take it even though I hit 135.2 this week.
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4448 - enough to lose a pound and I did

    10th Week Goal Weight: 135.0
    10th Week Actual Weight: 135.4. 137.0 was my start to the week.
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 4483 - enough to lose a pound and I did

    11th Week Goal Weight: 134.8
    11th Week Actual Weight: 136.0 - touching the 135s every week, but not firmly back there yet. I really don't want to weigh more than my birthday weight from last September on my next birthday. That was 131.1 Lots of work ahead to get back or exceed that. Started the week at 136.4
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5036 - Very active week, more than enough to lose a pound


    12th Week Goal Weight: 135.8
    12th Week Actual Weight: 136.8 - same as the start of the week
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5084 more than enough to lose a pound

    13th Week Goal Weight:
    13th Week Actual Weight: 135.0 - hit 134.2 this week
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5520, which works out to 778 per day average thanks to spring gardening and digging. Definitely enough to lose a pound.


    14th Week Goal Weight: 133.9 - ambitious, but after hitting 134.2 the previous week maybe I can do it.
    14th Week Actual Weight: 135.4 - Heavy calorie burn week due to getting the garden in.
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker: 5278

    Day 99: Sun, 5/8: 136.2 - Hoping for the best for tomorrow's weigh in. I am working late tonight, so dinner will be late. Could this be the first 100 in 3 where I have actually lost a little bit instead of gained? I think so.
    Day 100: Mon, 5/9: 136.6

    15th Week Goal Weight:
    15th Week Actual Weight: 136.6
    Excess calories in the Green on the MFP tracker




    Start weight this 100: 138.4 - Highest start weight for the last 4 100s
    Final weight this 100: 136.6 - 1.8 pound loss in 100 days. First 100 to show a loss in several rounds. I hit 134.2 during this 100, but it still seems far away from my 131.1 from my last September birthday, or my 130.6 from February 2021. Even though the loss is not very big, I am happy to not have a gain, and want to try to never have a gain again during 100 days.

    It has been a pleasure doing this all with you.

    @Lilylady3k
    Ahh ribs. I could certainly make a dent in those if I was there! Lol, I eat a whole rack myself. Honestly, I can't remember the last time that I had Ribs. With my weight gains over the past year I just didn't find a cushion to indulge in them. I will have them again some day, and have several packs in the freezer.

    Really glad that you are back with us, we missed you!!
