    I am about 8 kg along the way to lose 32 kg. I use multiple tape measurements (cm) around my body because they aren't affected by salt intake. My weight has been dropping for 5 months now. Apparently I've been trying to lose weight since September 2012, the last time I was at goal weight. Let's see if stopping eating sugary food is going to change things.

    Heaviest ever 1st Jan 2021, goal+31.8 kg

    Previous rounds
    Round 198: 815 cm

    bolded numbers means a loss of 0.5 cm for each measurement
    102.5 94.5 103.0 59.0 49.5 56.0 46.0 103.5 96.0 103.5 14th
    Tuesday went well, food was in control with no splurges
    102.0 96.0 104.5 57.5 47.5 55.5 47.0 103.0 97.5 105.0
    I overate on Wednesday unfortunately, due to the cold. I need to avoid going out in the cold as much as possible
    103.5 95.5 103.5 58.5 49.0 56.0 46.5 104.5 97.0 104.0
    Thursday was a good day in terms of what I ate, my exercise is consistent and every day
    100.5 96.5 103.0 57.5 48.5 55.5 47.5 101.5 98.0 103.5
    Friday I ate too much, especially sugar but I'm not too worried about it, it was a special occasion
    102.0 94.0 103.0 58.0 48.5 55.5 48.0 103.0 95.5 103.5
    Saturday I managed to cancel some of Friday's splurge
    103.0 94.5 103.0 57.0 48.0 56.0 48.0 104.0 96.0 103.5
    Sunday I managed to cancel some more of Friday's splurge
    102.0 95.0 103.5 58.0 48.0 56.0 47.0 103.0 96.5 104.0
    102.5 94.0 103.0 57.5 48.5 55.5 48.0 103.5 95.5 103.5
    102.0 95.0 102.5 58.0 49.5 56.0 48.0 103.0 96.5 103.0
    100.0 95.0 103.0 57.5 45.5 56.0 49.0 101.0 96.5 103.5
    102.0 94.5 103.5 57.5 49.5 56.5 49.0 103.0 96.0 104.0
    These total to 807 cm, a loss from last round

    How this round went: I think it went alright, in the previous round I gained so maybe there is a bit of sudden loss due to that. My exercise is going well. One day without sugar.

    Day/Weight/Avg/Comment:

    9/14 215.3 (avg 216.0)

    9/15 216.5 (avg 216.0) I’m up 1.4 pounds from last week. I’ve really lost hold of my momentum and motivation. Starting the day fresh.

    9/16 216.6 (avg 216.1) Football game tonight. We always stop for food after the game, so my choices throughout today are going to have to be really good.

    9/17 215.1

    9/18 216.9

    9/19 217.4 (avg 217.1) My girl child is starting intermittent fasting with me today and we are heading out to the gym before school. I feel really tired today. I know it’s because I haven’t been eating well And I’ve been super lazy. As long as I keep trying and don’t give up fully, Something will finally click.

    9/20 217.7 (217.3) Well, I’m wide awake at 5:30am ready for the gym. Just waiting for my kid. I did really well yesterday. I stayed under 1300 calories, increased my water intake, hit leg day at the gym. The scale doesn’t reflect that, but I find when I slack off from working out and go back to it, I see a bump in the scale and then a sharp drop. Let’s see if that happens this time.

    9/21 215.9

    9/22 216.4 (216.8 avg). Had a great workout at the gym today. I had an hour to kill before bringing my daughter an açaí bowl, so I went down by the river and walked the trails for about 40 minutes.

    9/23 215.3 (avg 216.5)

    I’d like to join you all for this round. During a visit to my GP yesterday (for something else entirely) she pointed out that I’m a bit heavier than I should be for my height. Of course I already knew this, but I’ve been lacking the willpower to do something about it. It surely can’t be a coincidence that this challenge is starting on the very day I’m looking for some extra motivation 😊

    SW: 174.2 lbs (Jan 2022)

    Day/Weight/Comment
    9/14 170.8 lbs

    9/15 169.8 lbs It was pouring with rain at lunchtime and I had a choice between going to a fitness/strength training class or sitting in my nice warm office and reading a book. Miraculously, the class won!

    9/16 170.4 lbs Ate out at a Turkish restaurant last night after another medical appointment across town. I avoided the bread but did eat most of the fries because the garlic sauce was delicious. I’m probably safe from vampires for a while!

    9/17 170.4 lbs Worked from home yesterday so had to make a conscious effort to get my steps in. Quite pleased that I managed to get to just over 15,000, as my step count can be woeful when I don’t walk to the office.

    9/18 168.6 lbs Grocery shopping and chores got me to 10,000 steps so I spent the rest of the afternoon crocheting xmas decorations (I’m slow, so I’m starting early).

    9/19 167.8 lbs Went for a 7 mile walk early yesterday morning, and it definitely feels like autumn is in the air here. Collected some windfall walnuts on the way – those will be saved for some lovely blue cheese salads.

    9/20 168.4 lbs At a work-related conference.

    9/21 168.4 lbs Still at the conference, but super pleased with my 2.4 lb loss in this first week since I started logging again.

    9/22 167.8 lbs Went to my fitness class at lunchtime again yesterday. Dinner was homemade chicken madras with a naan bread instead of rice.


    9/23 167.2 lbs For anyone that understands the wacky British weighing system, I’m now under 12 stone for the first time since April 2020. My success is definitely due to the accountability of this challenge, so a big thank you to all of you. Off to find the thread for round 200… 😊

    As a fellow Brit I'm with you !! It feels such an achievement when you get into the next lower stone !!

    Day/Weight/Comment
    9/14 / 171.4
    9/15 / 170.4 / Had a good day exploring Sidney yesterday with family and new friends. Today we are going over to my husband's cousin's house for french toast and then we are going to Butchart Gardens.
    9/16 / 170.8 / We are on our way East slowly making our way back home by Sunday, but first we stop in Penticton, BC for two nights. On the road now after a fun day that started with high tea, a bus tour around Victoria, and then the ferry ride back to the mainland.
    9/17 / 172.4 / Off to bike to wineries today. Not as warm as I'd like, but that might be a great thing when we get working up a sweat on the bike!
    9/18 / 174.4 / Driving home today and back to work tomorrow. This vacation has felt amazingly long and I am so thankful. My husband and I made many beautiful memories with family and with each other.
    9/19 / 173.6 / Hoping this means yesterday was the peak of my gain from vacation. Time to get back on track. Today was back to work and I made out okay. Got a walk in at work and a short one again after. Food is on track and I'll get on the Peloton after the Bills game.
    9/20 / 172.6 / Got Peloton ride #2 of the week in the books tonight.. it was a tough one but I did it! My husband gets back from his business trip tomorrow and I can't wait!
    9/21 / 172.4 / Donated blood at lunch today so I'm taking it easy on the exercise front tonight. I did do a lot of walking today so I'm well over my 10,000 steps. Waiting for my husband to get home so we can spend some time together before bed.
    9/22 / 170.4 / Back to my lowest weight so far this round. Work stress feels all consuming.
    9/23 / 168.4 / Nice to be back in the 160s. Trend weight is coming down. Work stress is at an all time high and I overeat as a result of it two times this week. Need to figure that out.

    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!
