    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    People say keto/LCHF isn’t sustainable. I’ve been doing it for almost 5 years with amazing results!

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    I have done this challenge before and it really helped keep me on track to healthy living. I have since gained most of that weight back (and then some) but I'm not discouraged. I am a 21-year old varsity college athlete who is just looking to lean up a bit - taking small goals at a time as weight-loss isn't my goal - just trying to lean myself into a healthier lifestyle.
    Round 146: -5.1lbs

    Hi folks, I am brand new to this challenge but I am excited to get started! 36 year old female, 5'4".

    I previously lost 30 lbs and am now back with 70 to lose (ugh!). This is my first week, so I expect to drop a lot of water weight right away this round, which explains my aggressive round gw.

    non-scale goals: track food daily, work out 4-5x weekly.

    I've used MFP for years, off and on. When I first used it, I lost a ton of weight. Now I'm at least 15 years older and a lot heavier. I'm 47 y/0 female, 5'6".

    I'm going to be out of town on holiday the last day of this round, so I thought I'd start one day early :)

    SW: 189.2
    Round Goal Weight - 187.0
    Non-scale goals - keep up with water intake; track food; work-out 4-5 times a week.

    8/24 189.0 - been drinking a lot more water than I usually do on recommendation due to the increased protein intake.

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    **************************************
    Day/Weight/Comment: Reflections on previous day

    8/15 - 159.5 (+1.4) - Sorry I skipped last round all. Tried to peek in on all of you a few times. Between some medical stuff and an intense workload I couldn’t keep up. I’m back and okay with the gains (aside from discomfort - TMI).

    8/16 - 158.0 (-1.5) - First day of school was long. Drained by new schedule already and travel time is nowhere near what we were anticipating. Hoping it eases up. 🥗 Over 💧176 oz. 🏋️‍♀️ Rowing + Tai Chi 👟 7,931

    8/17 - 156.2 (-1.8) - Simply exhausted! 🥗 Gross Under 💧123 oz. 👟 9,658

    8/18 - 156.4 (+0.2) - Working through solutions and relieved we’re making progress 🥗 Net Under💧112 oz. 🏋️‍♀️ Rowing + Walking 👟11,327. “In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.” - Albert Einstein

    8/19 - 157.3 (+0.9) - TMI 🥗 Gross Under💧132 oz. 🏋️‍♀️ kick boxing, strength + some labor on parents farm 👟 8,198. “I closed my eyes and let the music flow through me, cleansing my soul of all fear and sin and reminding me that I am always better than I think and stronger than I believe.” - Paulo Coelho

    8/20 - 156.1 (-1.2) - 🥗 Net Under💧144 oz. 🏋️‍♀️ Pilates, Tai Chi, Walking, A lot of strength 👟13,452. 🤦‍♀️ Pushed my body more than I should have yesterday.
    "No! No different! Only different in your mind. You must unlearn what you have learned. If no mistake have you made, yet losing you are.. a different game you should play." - Master Yoda

    8/21 - 156.3 (+0.2) - 🥗 Gross Under 💧144 oz. 🏋️‍♀️ Yoga + Walking 👟 14,387
    “Eventually all pieces fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment and know that everything happens for a reason” - Albert Schweitzer

    8/22 - 156.6 (+0.3) - 🥗 Gross Under💧112 oz. 🏋️‍♀️ Light rowing, Tai Chi + Strength 👟8,491. If anything I will have a small walk today.

    8/23 - DNW - 🥗 Gross Under 💧128 oz. 🏋️‍♀️ short walk 👟 7, 206. Colonic Hydrotherapy (Dr. Prescribed). Scale reports -4.7lbs but knowing my body is essentially running on empty I don’t want to enter (stepped on scale out of sheer curiosity).

    Too late to edit my post. 20 minutes of 1min on, 1 min off intervals on the rower DONE. Debating forcing myself up to get in a workout tomorrow on my day off so I have time to shower before doc appointment. Think I might do it because oversleeping leaves me feeling awful and the exercise gives me just the boost needed

    I have done this challenge before and it really helped keep me on track to healthy living. I have since gained most of that weight back (and then some) but I'm not discouraged. I am a 21-year old varsity college athlete who is just looking to lean up a bit - taking small goals at a time as weight-loss isn't my goal - just trying to lean myself into a healthier lifestyle.
