Round 201
October 4 - October 13, 2022

Please join us starting on 10/4 for JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, when we will begin Round 201!

Anyone can join us at anytime during the round.

Join us! If we stay mindful we can do this, you can do this.

Welcome back past members, welcome new members, let's keep each other accountable for another 10 days!

Here is what you do: Post your daily weight and add little comments along the way of how your day went. Post everyday to let us know how you're doing! Copy and paste the days in your response--tell us how much you lost and other non scale victories (NSV) you'd like to share.

FOR NEWBIES - I find it easiest to copy the dates to a document or note in my device and edit it each morning. Then copy and paste to the message board. MFP will return you to the spot on the board where you left off on your previous visit which is nice to know if you like to scan all of the posts.

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

    10/4 - 177.4
    Salty lunch yesterday, and a bit of snacking last night. It’s ok. Today is one of my no-dinner days, and I’ll be out walking for tracking class I’m teaching for 2 or so hours this evening, so it will fall off again. We have gorgeous weather—perfect October gold. 🍁🍁🍁

    64 yr young F, 5ft 4 Round 201 ( my 133th). Thanks again @QuiltingJaine.

    2.6 pounds of holiday weight gain gone, 1.4 to go, that is my goal for this round. Restin heart rate down to 50, that's an improvement too as that is directly linked to my weight. No binges, keep within calories & macros.
    Achieved goal weigh of 125lb in summer 2016 by losing 66lb and then gradually gained between 7 and 11 since then & didn't want to gain any more, It's took me 75 rounds to achieve my under 130 target; back to maintenance again!! But then I crept up again, so need to get back under 130. Healthy life style has to be a permanent way of life.
    End of round 69 134.2 lbs

    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!

    Awesome! Thank you as always for posting @quiltingjaine! These challenges really keep me motivated and you are a great group of people! ❤️
    This will be my 12th round and I have lost a total of 26.3 pounds so far! This challenge brings me the most success and is much easier by breaking up my goals into smaller chunks.
    I have one very solid goal, to be in Onederland by 12/17/22, after that, let the weight come off how it does.

    SW: 250
    UGW: under 150 ish
    RSW: 205.3
    RGW: 204 ish

    10/4: 205.3
