    Day 2 – Wed March 08 – 144.6 – I think this jump is still a result of going off track last week up until Sunday. This week’s goal is to bring down the inflammation.

    Aiming for a loss of 50 grams a day
    Day 1 87.3 kg I had what I call a 'sugar fest', I always do that at the start of losing weight, plus some fruit and crackers, I drank a lot of water in an attempt to battle the heat here, so I'm not surprised that my weight has increased...
    Day 2 87.6 on track? Probably. I am trying to go off sugar, but I am not too successful usually, be on the lookout for "x days without sugar" now and then. Today went alright, however from now on I am limiting myself to only 2 small packs of crackers, because I wasn't really hungry.
    I've decided to aim for 30 grams loss a day since I'm in a new environment now, sharing food and I don't really know what level of hunger to aim for, I'll increase it later
    Day 3 87.3 on track? Probably. Today was a good day, I probably ate under maintenance, although I wonder if my weight loss is just my body emptying out since I splurged in Day 0. Against my better judgement (done this soooo many times) I plotted on my spreadsheet and I'm guessing May 30th next year is goal day. Mark your calendar.
    Day 4 86.8 on track

    @deepwoodslady

    Oh, what concert did you see?
    What did you have at the new (to you) restaurant? I always love to know what people eat/cook.

    Yes, restaurant food is so loaded with hidden sodium and fats.

    @dawnbgethealthy I was a school concert with my 2 grandson's in it. Our schools all around this area are K-12 schools (one school shared by all grades). So both my kindergarten grandson was in it as well as my 9th grader. My 9th grader is 14 (He'll be 15 before the end of the month) but he is already 6' 5" tall and sings bass. Afterward we went to yet another town over to a small bar that recently opened. It was "pizza night" which is why my daughter chose it because her 3 kids all love it. My son ordered Pizza (his favorite) and I got the chicken basket. I only ate the 3 pieces of tenders. I gave the fries to the kindergartener. I did try one though. Wow, very good! It was a bit of a grand opening still and they gave each of us two no bake cookies. I ate them. When I went home, I changed up my prelogged food and was happy to find that my 3 tenders were less calories than what I had planned and so were the carbs so I was good there. But those cookies......So I cancelled all my evening snacks and called it a day. That kept me under in calories by 69 (I did not eat back my exercise calories so that was actually under my goal), but it put me over by a lot on the carbs.

    I figure my gain could have been from that. However, when I looked at my other challenge I noticed that every other day has been typed in blue and every other day in pink. Since I take my water pill (for the most part) every other day, this could easily have been fluid retention this morning. I didn't take it yesterday. That water retention really does make it difficult to track my day to day progress. But I know that overall, I've lost weight in the big picture.

    On January 23 I weighed in at 208.2 with weights all around but close to it in the days prior and after. Since January 23rd I have lost about 19 pounds when you look at the dip I had at 189 point something. Even today's 2 pound increase puts me at a 16 pound loss. And yet...... I still can't get to that 10 pound loss I want before Easter LOL. Clearly this is what @Lilylady3k means when she speaks of losing the same pounds over and over. So damn frustrating. However, I'm gradually going down in a slow zig-zag way and my trend weight is down in a more lasting way so there has been progress.

    I just wanted to mention that to you while I had your ear. That frustrating loss of the same pounds over and over. Ugh.....No wonder my heart is weak LOL

    @threewins If I could even lose 3 pounds per month (my goal is usually 5 pounds per month) then I could be at approximately 145 by July 1st 2024 . I would be so THRILLED.

    I got on well with intermittent fasting. Lost a good bit of weight, especially around the mid-section. Decided in November to divorce my husband of 30 years (he has undiagnosed narcissistic personality disorder - I am 100% sure of it). My kids are 18 and 20, so it was time. He was carrying on a long distance relationship in secret with a woman he had never met.

    Moved into a new home. I am still learning to function on my own, putting together furniture, fixing things, deciding who to call when I need assistance, etc. I will be happy in the long run, but this has been tough and I have been eating my feelings.

    So, now I'm ready to fast again. Day three. I'm happy at least the water weight is coming off. :)

    @slim1 I am so sorry you had to go through that in your marriage. I divorced my first husband and father of all 3 of my children after 21 years of marriage and 27 years together (since Jr. High School) because he, too, was a *kitten*. I went on to meet a wonderful man later who brought with him a 4 year old son that I had the privilage to raise and call my own. We were together 15 years until he passed away. It is he who helped me raise my children. I am here if you ever need to message me privately or publicly. I know how hard it is to start over. But I promise you, sometimes there really is something or someone on the other side of it. I also moved and started a whole new life along with my children who were very little at the time. One of them was a two year old autistic boy. Before I met my 2nd husband I managed to pull it together a little at a time. I ended up, as a single mother, buying two small businessess which I worked at for 22 years. I also bought a small rental home. I was financially independent and it felt good. Living well was the best revenge, just like I've always heard. I am not college educated, I am from a very poor family who could not help me. I just managed to take the bull by the horns and take my world which was upside down and flip it back to right side up.

    What I am trying to say is that you can do this. It won't be easy, but it will be rewarding. If you need to talk, don't be afraid to reach out. We are all anonymous here and it's a good place to let your feelings come out. It's a safe place as you continue to guard your heart. I'm sending out prayers and good vibes that all your needs will be met and that you will be okay.

    Well it's been 10 years since I've been at goal weight and apparently I've been trying to get to goal weight in all of those years. I figure that if I stop having sugar I'll make it and if I don't stop, well I won't.

    100 Days of Accountability 3/7 -6/14
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Female, Age 62, 5’3”
    Challenge Starting Weight: 231.6 (3/6/2023)
    Challenge Goal: <219
    History & Goals
    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 SW: 245 BMI 43.4 (1/2/2019) Lost 15 lbs in 2019 then regained 5
    2020 SW: 235 BMI 41.6 (1/1/2020) Then back up to 241 before refocusing in Aug
    2021 SW: 212 BMI 37.6 (1/1/2021) NOTE: Low 201.1 in August 2021
    2022 SW: 209 BMI 37.0 (1/1/2022)
    2023 SW: 232 BMI 41.1 (1/1/2023)

    UGW: 165 BMI 29.2 Overweight NOT Obese
    🎯 Mini Goals & Weight:
    * Get out of the 230s!!!!!!
    * Making below 225 stick
    * Into the teens again: <220
    * Less than I started year 2022: <209
    * Prior to Oct 2021 roadtrip damage: <206
    * Onederland: 199
    * Obese stage 1 BMI 34.9: 197
    * 50 lbs lost never to be found: 195

    My goal for 2023 is to get into ONEderland and make it stick. Changing my life.
    Plans:
    🔹Find workout routine that works (walk, bike, planks, yoga, swim, strength training, take advantage of retirement to be more active); target walking 100 miles each month
    🔹Drink more water (target min 64-80 oz daily; start with 1 glass before coffee)
    🔹Journal Food Daily (tracking with MFP since 12/28/2018; basically skipped June-Dec 2019; recommit 1/1/2020; skipped out April-July 2020; recommit 8/6/2020; derailed in 2022; recommit 1/3/2023)
    🔹Daily Vitamins (Dr’s orders; need to not ignore)
    🔹Drink less alcohol (3 AF days per week; ~12-16 AF days per month; limit 1-2 glasses per day)

    My challenge this round will be a cruise scheduled in June so I won't be around at the end of the challenge and will likely start the following round with a crazy gain. So THIS 100 days I need to really get back into the weight loss grove so that I don't let my weight continue to creep up higher.
    Day/Weight/Previous Day’s Comment
    Tracking: W=walk miles, SF=strong & fit strength class 1 hr, B=bike minutes, S=swim laps, A=water/agua ounces, J=tracked/journaled all my food cal/net carbs, V=vitamin, AF=alcohol Free
    Total March Walking = 12.4 of target 100 miles

    Day 1: 3/7 - 231.2 - W 1 mile, SF, AF. NO J, A, V Starting today I begin journaling every bite no matter the calories. I can and will do better.
    Day 2: 3/8 - 230.4 - J (1503 cal / 149 net carbs), AF. So busy planning a cruise to Norway that I forgot to walk after teaching ESL! Need to make sure that I don’t let things continue to distract me from my goal.
    Day 3: 3/9 - 231.2 - J(1951 cal / 228 net carbs). W .6 mile. Enjoyed the day with my granddaughter and DIL.
    Day 4: 3/10 - 229.9 -J (1216 cal / 92 net carbs) W 1 mile, garden.

    1st week goal: < 231
    1st week actual weight - 229.9

    On the right track kicking off my journaling habit. Not to add something else to the mix this next week. Probably water!

    Hi everyone.
    I am Dawn. 5'2", 62 years old.
    My BMI and stuff like that shows my optimum healthy weight should be between 110 and 120.

    I have steadily gained in all but one of the last bunch of 100s (gained 2.2 pounds this past one)
    I need to turn that around.
    I am not cutting out any food groups, or anything at all really because I want weight loss to be sustainable for life. I have learned to have less of certain things, and have moved some other stuff to once per week or once per 3 months (Ribs, very fattening). If I thought that I couldn't have them at all I believe that it would be worse. For the most part I eat very healthy foods.
    I have had quite a bit of success since I started MFP October 28.18, but this past year has been an almost 15 pound gain.
    I am into my biggest pair of pants and have no desire to buy bigger pants. I have lots of cute clothes that I was wearing at 130, and at that point I was driving hard to get into the 120s and beyond.

    I love this long length of 100 days, and seeing how each week is going,

    As always, I am open to suggestions. I think most of us have tried everything at this junction.
    Calories in vs. Calories out really should work though.

    Best of luck to everyone.

    Day 1 – Tues March 07 - 143.4 - Yesterday was my first day back to my restaurant job, so I got lots of steps in as well as a few Fitness Marshall dances. MFP is still telling me that I will be 119.0 in 5 weeks if every day was like this. I gain very fast and lose very slowly.
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 - 142.6 - The restaurant was completely dead, not even one table, so...I got lots of Fitness Marshall songs in via my phone at the staff table. I am doing Foster Grant jobs each day after my restaurant job also, I am behind due to being "out" with Covid.
    Day 3 – Thurs March 09 - 142.6 - Late dinner, tonight too. I am also pre-logging for the day.
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 - 142.4 - I didn't get dinner until after 11pm, but I really really had to eat. Tonight will also be a late dinner, I am trying to catch up on all of the Foster Grant jobs that I couldn't get to while having Covid.

    1st week goal weight: 142.2 - Start weight from the last 100 and go from there.
    1st week actual weight: 142.4 - Started the (short) week at 143.4
    Excess calories burned (in the green): I will fill this in after today's numbers. The corrected weekly calendar is now on page 2.

    Day 5 – Sat March 11
    Day 6 – Sun March 12
    Day 7 – Mon March 13
    Day 8 – Tues March 14
    Day 9 – Wed March 15
    Day 10 – Thurs March 16
    Day 11 – Fri March 17

    2nd week goal weight: 142.2 or less - Still wanting to get back to the start weight from the previous 100
    2nd week actual weight
    Excess calories burned (in the green):

    Start weight of the 100: 143.4, up 1.2 from the start weight of the previous 100

    100 Days of Weighing In ^^^^^ March 07, 2023 through June 14, 2023
    My Name is Donna, Age 62. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    My mini-challenge is to lose 10 pounds by Easter 2023. I started my efforts on Dec. 10th weighing 198.4. My wish is to weigh 188.4 by Easter April 9th, 2023. That gives me about 4 months to lose 10 pounds. Sounds easy but, trust me, it won’t be. Especially when outside exercise is so limited for me this slippery time of year!

    145320379.png

    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


    “We will encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” ~Maya Angelou

    Starting Weight from End of Last Challenge: : 191.2
    Goal This Round: 186.2

    Ending Weight: xxxxx


    Weight in blue makes me blue because it’s a gain. Weight in fuchsia pink makes me feel cheery because it’s a loss. Weight in black means no change.

    Day 01-03/07-191.6-(Trend weight 192.9)

    Day 02-03/08-190.6-(Trend weight 192.7) Well, I’m thinking about my personal Easter challenge (listed above in red) today. I gave myself 4 months to lose 10 pounds. Back in my younger days, I could actually lose the 8-10 lbs per month that dieters try to achieve. Boy, that was the good old days! But these days, to lose 10 pounds in 4 months is a horrific challenge. I have approximately one more month left. I have 2.2 more pounds to lose. But not really. Because I will go up and down multiple times, it is more like 10-15 pounds to lose (over and over again all month) just to get to the 2.2 pounds. Can I do it? I say “Hell Yes!”. Can I REALLY do it? I hope…….

    Day 03-03/09-192.2-(Trend weight 192.6) Calories and other macros were on point yesterday but my carbs were way over. I did end up going out to dinner after the concert last night. It was a new place in a nearby town that I had never been to, I just couldn’t resist, and I really wanted to take my son. I’m glad that I stayed under calorie and I REALLY REALLY watched my portions, but the carbs really bit me in the butt. Travel day today and I certainly don’t want to compound it. I’m pre-logging when I’m done here and making a plan. I know dinner will be that precooked food I put in the fridge. Gotta watch my lunch while out of town!

    Day 04-03/10-191.6-(Trend weight 192.5) What a nice surprise on the scale today! I didn’t expect a drop even though my diet and calorie burn was excellent yesterday. The past two days I have not been able to take my water pill, (Wednesday because of concert and Thursday because of cardiac rehab & travel). So this is a true fat loss. Today I will take my pill as I am home on babysitting duty for DGS and snowed in anyway after several inches dropped last night. My ankles feel like I have vice grips on them so it will be a relief to shed the excess fluid. It should show up on the scale in the morning too. I have already pre-logged my planned food for today. Exercise will be tough with grandson here until about 9:30 pm. I’ll do what I can when I can but it’s hard to have a whole 20 minutes doing anything without constant interruption. Enjoy your day everyone!

    I’m Teri
    Age 59, 5’4”

    Challenge Starting Weight: 144 lbs
    Challenge Goal Weight: 138lbs
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 130-133 lbs
    Challenge Ending Weight:
    Total Weight Loss for Challenge:

    Day 1 – Tues March 07 -- 144 – This is the same weight I started with on the last Challenge. There were many ups and downs on the scale but, alas, I’m right back where I started.
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 – 144.6 – I think this jump is still a result of going off track last week up until Sunday. This week’s goal is to bring down the inflammation.
    Day 3 – Thurs March 09 – 144.4
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 – 142.9 – Happy to see this number on the scale this morning. I’ve been working on correcting what I undid last week with too much sugar & carbs. Just glad I was able to jump back on the wagon this week. Feeling less bloated. Yay! Still working on getting some exercise in though.
    Day 5 – Sat March 11

    Hi all, I'm Rowan, I live in Northamptonshire, UK.
    I have been off and on MFP since 2013, and have been 128lbs at my lowest, 180.8 at my highest.
    In the summer of 2021, I was at my highest weight and feeling utterly sick, tired and depressed. I restarted tracking my calories, with no exercise other than walking 5 miles a day most days, and managed to lose 43lbs in about 5 months. But then I took a break in March last year and didn't come back until January this year, by which time I'd regained 26lbs. So I got back in the game and am now down about 13lbs since then.
    I am taking a different approach this time, I have raised my calories slightly and am focusing on getting lots of protein and staying hydrated. I have been strength training for about the last month, which I am really enjoying, but it does leave me feeling quite tired at times, so it can be difficult to get my steps in every day.
    I have a health tracker watch which tells me that I have a BMR of 1254 calories a day and on days that I work out I burn around 1800-2000 calories in 24hrs, 1500 calories on days that i don't. I aim to eat around 1200 calories a day with 40% protein. I have a BMI of 26.5 and I have a high body fat percentage of 40.4%, so I really need to lower my body fat to at least 30% and raise my muscle mass. Hopefully this will help increase my metabolism, which seems to crawl along at a snail's pace. Gaining any muscle while eating at a deficit is really difficult, but at least I can do my best to retain the muscle that I have.
    I should be losing about 1.5lbs a week, however things aren't always so straightforward, so I have set a target for 1lb a week for the first 50 days of this challenge, then 0.5lb a week for the second 50 days. If I manage to get to within the healthy BMI range by the end of this, I will be very happy. So that's 143lbs for me, about 9lbs to lose, but I'm hoping for 141lbs.

    Sorry for the essay! Good luck to everyone, we can do this!

    F42 5'4
    Highest weight: 180.8lbs July 5th '21
    Current weight: 151.6lbs
    Challenge goal weight: 141.0lbs
    Ultimate goal weight: Under 130lbs
    Target lbs to lose: 10.6lbs
    Day 50 mini goal 143.2lbs based on trend weight prediction

    Day 1 – Tues March 07 151.6
    Day 2 – Wed March 08 151.8
    Day 3 – Thurs March 09 151.2
    Day 4 – Fri March 10 151.2

    1st week goal weight: 151.0
    1st week actual weight: 151.2

    Challenge weight lost: 0.4
    Challenge weight to go: 10.2


    Not the best start, but I think I'm in the middle of my usual monthly plateau, and water retention from muscle soreness is also at play.
    I'm fully in my routine now of gym 4/5 days a week, cals 1200 or less and walking 8500 a day, so I just need to stay consistent and let the magic happen. I would like to find ways to be more active, outside of intentional exercise. When the weather improves it should become easier. I have loads of DIY that I need to get done but traipsing in and out of my cold garage in the sleet and rain really doesn't appeal.
    A couple of days ago we booked flights to Portugal, leaving on the 22nd, back on 28th. I'm thinking of taking a food scale and an exercise band with me to help me stay on track. There's a pool at our apartment and push bikes we can use, so hopefully I'll be able to counteract any excesses by staying active. OH will be working while we're there, so I'll have a lot of time to kill. I'm wondering if I'm brave enough to do a sea kayaking tour on my own... I'm a water baby but OH can't swim and has a bit of a fear of deep water, so I don't often get the chance to get out on the waves. Need to brush up on my Portuguese, I was doing daily lessons for a few months then stopped abruptly about 2 weeks ago and I'm shocked how much I've forgotten already! Agora, eu vou a commer o pequeño-almoço, depois eu vou para o gym. Até tarde!
