    Thanks Jill for keeping the monthly challenges going! :-)
    💐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: 148 lbs (Lowest recent weight was 147.6 lbs on 4/6-7)

    May weight lost so far: 10.8 lbs (A lot of this was water retention from traveling)

    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 04 -149.8 lbs, Fluid retention, whoosh away!!!! “May the 4th be with you” 😄
    May 05-149.4 lbs. I will take every tenth!!!
    May 06-148 lbs Today was a work day so usually not a exercise day. But I actually got out on time at 5 pm(rare for a nurse to get out on time!), ran a quick errand, and decided to get on my elliptical with my son's encouragement. Did 121 minutes for 9 miles. Felt great afterwards and soooo glad I got a extra workout in this week!
    May 07-148 lbs. 301 minutes on the Elliptical for 19 miles, this AM. Today was a tougher session. Not sure why. I sort of wanted to quit earlier but persevered. I didn't hurt but was not feeling as energized as I usually do. I averaged out to 15.8 minute miles. My usual is 13 minutes to just over that. I hope I'm not coming down with something. I can sure use the calorie deficit, since tomorrow is Mother's Day and I'm having brunch at one of my son's house. I figure I will need them!
    May 08- 148 lbs. I actually stayed within my calories/carbs today. My 2 son's and the mil son's made a brunch for all the mom's in the merged family. It was very nice. Did 337 minutes (2 sessions) on my elliptical for 25 miles. Normally I would have pushed it to 26.2 miles but I didn't realize I was that close and it was 9 pm. I had wash to fold afterwards and I work tomorrow too.
    May 09-148 lbs

    May 10-148 lbs Lost my internet connection while I was on the Elliptical this AM. I use it to distract me from my usually long times. So I only did 121 minutes for 9 miles. Till I got it back, my motivation was lost for the day. :-(

    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 Weight Loss 1lb ⬇️

    May 01 184 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.
    “May the 4th be with you” 😄

    May 10 183 lbs ⬇️
    May 11 183 lbs OK 1lb less in 11 days. My weekly trend weight from last Wednesday went from 183.8 to 183.4. So it is downward trend. Half a month have lots of discipline to do.

    January 1st: 190.6
    May 1st: 165.8
    Current weight: 165.2

    May weight lost so far: 0.6
    Weight lost this year: 25.4

    Daily Focus:
    🌼 Weigh in each morning
    🌼 Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌼 Log honestly and consistently

    🌼 Minimum 64 oz of water

    Stretch Goals:

    🌱10K steps daily
    🌱7.75 hours sleep or more

    May 01 - 165.8 (And we are off! Looking for this to be the month I entrench myself in the middle of my maintenance range and switch to that stage. Excited!)
    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.)
    May 05 - 169.4 (Shrimp dinner, a Peloton ride and some TV last night. Last day of in office work today for the week.. meeting my husband for lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant. )
    May 06 - 170 (My husband has the flu or something like it so our weekend has started off on a quieter note. I have done the cooking the last two nights which isn't our usual routine. I took my dog for a nice walk tonight to enjoy some sun and I also retested on the Peloton during my lunch break and improved my FTP.)
    May 07 - 169 (Today I have a Zoom call with one of my groups on MFP. Also plan to take my first ride in my new zones which is always challenging.)
    May 08 - 167.6 (Taking my Mom out for a brunch today to celebrate her. The sun is out so I also hope to walk and bike. A bit of light house cleaning too! Enjoy the day all.)
    May 09 - 164.6 (Excess weight carried around during TOM has cleared as of this morning. I rode the Peloton last night and navigated the Mother's Day brunch very well. Today we woke up to snow but it's melted already. I will walk at lunch and then my evening activities will depend on my husband's plans.)
    May 10 - 164.4 (Wasn't firing on all cylinders today but I've ate on plan, drank my water, and gotten over 10,000 steps. I still want to ride the Peloton but we'll see if I time out before bed.)
    May 11 - 165.2 (I did get my Peloton ride in last night, and I had a much better day today. Off to enjoy a walk with my husband and my dog.)

    Well, crap... I swear I started a post here. But I can't find it, so I wonder if I did start it, but left it in the edit box when I thought I saved it. Ah well.

    Hello! I'm back. I have totally fallen off my wagon and I'm bruised and battered and trying to get myself right-side up again. I was recently knocked for a loop when my doc diagnosed me with moderate major depression. I thought I was just stressing over my daughter's MH issues and trying to purchase a house. I guess those issues could have caused me to get depressed. Sadly, my way of dealing with my stress is to eat. And to eat carbs in most of their most "dangerous" forms. So.... I'm not sure where I'm going from here, but I'll be doing my best to get myself back on track with the low carb diet I'm supposed to be on. So.... here we go with the ugly truth:

    Heaviest weight: Not sure, I avoided the scale - I imagine it was close to 230 lbs
    January 1st: 191.6
    May 1st: 203.4


    Daily Focus:
    🌼 Track everything I eat
    🌼 Log honestly and consistently
    🌼 Get my act together and get back on this website - keep up with my challenges

    Stretch Goals:
    🌱 Exercise every day (stretching counts!)
    🌱 Eating within my calorie goals
    🌱 Eating less carbs
    🌱 Me time!

    May 01 - 203.4
    May 02 - 204.8
    May 03 - 205.0
    May 04 - 205.6 May the Fourth be with you!
    May 05 - 204.6
    May 06 - 204.8
    May 07 - 203.8
    May 08 - 204.4
    May 09 - 205.4
    May 10 - 206.0
    May 11 - 206.2 So far, not doing so well. Le sigh.

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 62 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)…..
    05/02.…..204.6…..(Trend Weight 202.7)….. 05/03.…..203.8…..(Trend Weight 202.8}…..
    05/04.…..203.8…..(Trend Weight 202.9)…..
    05/05.…..203.8…..(Trend Weight 203.0)…..
    05/06.…..203.4…..(Trend Weight 203.0)….. 05/07.…..201.0…..(Trend Weight 202.8)…..


    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!
    05/09.…..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. I’ll be watching the scale, sometimes it creeps up later!


    05/10.…..203.2…..(Trend Weight 202.5)….. My 62nd Birthday! Not a very nice present on the scale this morning. Pretty good dietary choices yesterday which kept it under 1600 (my normal is under 1400). Moderate exercise. I had a big bump down, now a big jump right back up. I don’t always understand how this works for me but I do know that TMI is likely part of this equation today. Dinner out tonight with a friend and at a later time with my oldest daughter (maybe next week?)


    05/11.…..204.0…..(Trend Weight 202.7)….. I thought my dinner out yesterday was very reasonable. Very light breakfast and applesauce for snack. Hmph! Maybe birthday and mother’s day all coming at me at once on the scale. Tonight, another dinner for birthday. Home cooked meal with steak, potato etc. at one of my children’s houses. I’ll keep my day light again. Maybe get out more and MOVE in the yard.


    05/12.…..204.6…..(Trend Weight 202.9)….. Birthday dinner yesterday was delicious and healthy. Long travel today so leaving early. No TMI x2.
