    6’-2”
    OSW: 237.8 (Nov. 2016)
    OGW: 199 (just to say I did)
    Maintenance Range Goal: 200-205

    Goals for this round:

    1. Log my food daily.
    2. Exercise
    3. Start paying attention

    Round 204 Posts
    This is my posting format….

    Month/Day: Scale Reading - First thing today after bathroom visit before getting dressed.
    / Exercise – yesterday / Comment

    /mowing & leaf pick-up over my noon hour/ Two days ago I weighed almost 4 pounds more. It was he aftermath of a careless weekend, too much salt and not enough TMI. So this drop is not a great accomplishment. None the less, I am happy to see it.

    I logged my food yesterday for the first time in a while. I must confess, when MFP took the barcode scanner away from “the unwashed” such as myself, it took a little bit of the shine off the app.

    11/04: 215.8
    /no exercise/ We have two snacks at the office. Peanut M&Ms and Peanut butter filled pretzels. I may have been involved in a one-person snaccident yesterday.

    11/05: DNW

    11/07: 218.2
    /yard work/ A general weekend of excess. Too many social engagements.

    11/08: 216
    /not/ Almost back to my starting weight. :/ Yesterday’s food intake was very controlled. I had to consciously tamp down the temptation to pack the pie hole. It’s hard.

    Going to exercise my right to vote today.


    11/09: 215
    /Weights, Stretching and Spinning/ Feeling like the “sponge” is getting a little rung out. I can hold and absorb stuff with the best of sponges. What I need is less sponge. How many sentences in a row can I use the word sponge?

    I logged it all yesterday.

    Have a good hump day.

    11/02: 216.8
    Starting weight at end of last round.


    11/10: 217.2

    11/11: 215.8
    /none but a very short walk/ Leaving today for weekend visit with DD. Won’t be posting until I get back.

    I like to track averages due to my wild fluctuations. For the same reason, I like to weigh daily so I can see the lows from time to time. It gives me hope.

    Starting weight for R24: 149.0lbs

    11/3 148.6 Off to a good start.
    11/4 148.2
    11/5 148.0 Ate a little more than I should have yesterday.
    11/6 148.2 It was our youngest sons birthday, so we had him over for a family dinner last night.
    11/7 148.4 Stuck to plan pretty good yesterday, so not sure what's going on.
    11/8 147.8 That's better
    11/9 147.8 Today is my birthday. My husband made reservations at a nice restaurant for tonight, but they're forecasting another 8" of snow today so we may have to postpone the dinner until the weekend. We live up in the mountains, 20 miles from town, so it wouldn't be very safe driving conditions at night.
    11/10 147.0 Wow, I just met goal too! Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! I stayed in yesterday and watched my intake of food. We'll go out to dinner this weekend, I'm really looking forward to a lobster dinner :smiley:

    Round 204
    November 3 - November 12, 2022

    Please join us starting on 11/3 for JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, when we will begin Round 204

    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👍👍

    @musicsax

    I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your Aunt. And also to hear of the news of your friend's terminal illness. Many prayers to you and all the families. I hope God will let you rest in all the good memories and help you to find peace.

More room to get around the dining area without the saw horses in there! I am glad to see the scale a bit down. I know I could have done a bit better. I caved and made some pasta. Fast, easy, good and a “safe” food for me with my eating disorders. Today I will try to get in more protein.

    11/11 -198.0- (Trend weight 199.2) Travel again today with my friend and we will be having lunch out-of-town after the medical appt in celebration of her birthday. I will be mindful as I would like to end this round, at the very least, still in Onederland though that will be almost impossible to do. Today is my true non-bloat weight. I’m really dancing around 200 way too much. Time to get off the dance floor and start the solid journey to my dream destination!

    Day/Weight/Comment

    11/03 - 176.2
    I went for a nice long walk in the woods yesterday, but on the way back to my car I tripped over a crazy bunch of grass and fell. Skinned and bruised my right palm, and my left knee has a big colorful lump. I’m fine, just tender, and trying to figure out how I landed on opposite limbs! But the woods were lovely, full of crunchy leaves and that wonderful fragrance of fall. Today I’m off to hang out at the dog show, see friends, smooch dogs. Have a great day, everyone!

    11/04 - 176.4
    I had a lovely time yesterday hanging out at the dog show, seeing friends, some I see all the time, some from other places I see only occasionally, and playing with dogs. A friend from Indianapolis whom I met on a train in 2011 was here showing her dog, and came for dinner, which was lovely. And in spite of the lobster ravioli with olive oil and Parmesan, a little wine, and a piece of lemon pound cake, I stayed under calories for the day. (No lunch.) I also go lots of steps walking around the Coliseum for 3+ hours! I’m writing today but plan to spend most of tomorrow at the show, trying to figure out what kind of dog I want next, which is weight-related since I get a lot more exercise when I’m playing with a dog! 😁

    11/05 - 177
    Ok, time lag from Thursday. That’s fine. I just got home from all day at the dog show again, walking or standing most of the time. It was fun to see people I haven’t seen in ages. Staying home tomorrow to write and make soup.

    11/06 - 176.6
    Nothing to report since I checked in late yesterday. Planning a creative day—write (working on an idea for a new book), make soup (once I land on a recipe), knit, go for a walk, read…. I hope you all have a lovely Sunday!

    11/07 - 176.6
    I made a really yummy new soup yesterday—butternut squash and apple. Interesting combo! And low calorie. Leftovers today. Yum. That’s the 42nd different soup I’ve made this year. 🍵

    11/08 - 176.6
    I’m beginning to see a trend here. 😊 I actually expected to be up this morning as I ate way too much yesterday. Moving along…

    11/09 - 177.2
    Oopsie doopsie. I overate yesterday, too. Don’t know what’s gotten into me the past two days. Colder weather, I guess. I’ll do better today.

    11/10 - 176.8
    I can’t seem to stop eating — did it again yesterday. Aaaackk! But I ate a better breakfast this morning, and I find that usually keeps me under control the rest of the day, so we’ll see if I do better today.

    11/11 - 177.6
    Ugh. The aftermath of overeating. I don’t know why I become a vacuum cleaner in the evenings the past few days. Gotta stop this nonsense.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    11/3: 133.4 - Good workout but ate every single one of my exercise calories back.
    11/4: 132.7 - Workout completed and much better eating today. Stayed under overall calorie goal.
    11/5: 132.7 - Busy day, but got my workout in. Despite eating a few pieces of Halloween candy, still ate within my goals.
    11/6: 133.2 - Get together at a friend’s house for dinner. Got my workout in, but eating was not great.
    11/7: 133.2 - Birthday celebrations yesterday - tried not to eat much during the day to save calories for dinner and dessert. Mostly worked. Had to add a good workout to give me some extra calories for the day.
    11/8: 132.5 - Got a couple of workouts in before the rains and tried to eat more vegetables. Dessert(s) may have did me in a bit though.
    11/9: 131.8 - Normal workouts, eating more vegetables for lunch and dinner, so-so sleep.
    11/10: 132.7 - Good workout, ate more carbs than I should have though.
    11/11: 132.7 - Got both workouts in, which I definitely needed since I met up with friends for dinner. First time in a few years that I ordered a lobster roll. Yum.
    11/12: -

    Total round weight loss/gain to date from EO last round: - 0.2 pounds

    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.

    @Pezhed, I think one of the hardest things is to determine what is the "correct" weight. I am getting close to that line. When to stop dieting and start toning? When you figure that out let me know. I think that when you are shorter this line is harder to determine.
