    03/10 -191.6- (Trend weight 192.5)

    03/11 -189.2- (Trend weight 192.2) Well, here’s the true weight after the water pill took all the excess fluid out that I spoke of yesterday. What a relief to my ankles especially! Interestingly, the last two nights I dozed off on the couch and woke up STARVING TO ABSOLUTE DEATH, both times at about 12:30 a.m. I was so close to a binge it was UNBELIEVABLE! I found myself justifying (out loud, mind you) why it’s okay for me to eat whatever I want right now, and in large quantities. Why I should just shove in many kinds of foods and “get it out of my system” as long as I’m so hungry anyway. I tell you folks, it took EVERYTHING I HAVE INSIDE THIS NEARLY 63 YEAR OLD BODY to stop myself. I grabbed a handful of almonds (21 of them to be exact, which is ¾ of a serving) and I ate those, drank water and focused back on something on TV. It worked both nights. Hunger banished because of the healthy fat. I would have grabbed walnuts (so healthy) but I had already had some during breakfast both days. I’m so glad I did this two nights in a row as I know it has helped continue my weight loss. I knew, by the way, that I had already had sufficient calories, carbs, protein etc. or I would have eaten something more. My body was fighting the weight loss. We were in a bitter battle – I won this time.

    03/12 -189.0- (Trend weight 191.9) What a good round this has been for me. 4.2 lbs down. Spent most of my time at home (minimal travel) so that always helps since my food choices are more controlled. One other thing..... my underwear are too big now. That’s all I have to add. I hope that gave someone a chuckle or put a smile on someone’s face today. It did mine! See ya’ll tomorrow at round 217.


    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

    @deepwoodslady You did give me a chuckle! I'm waiting on mine to get too big as I have a whole size smaller just waiting in my drawer to be worn. The size I wear now are getting very old but I refuse to buy more at that size!

    And CONGRATULATIONS on such a great round! 4.2 pounds down! Wonderful!

    I am about 11 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. 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

    Round 215 808 cm

    Here are my measurements, bolded means a loss of 0.5 cm, and the number is used to sum the total measurement

    100.0 90.0 101.5 57.5 48.0 56.0 48.0 100.0 93.0 103.0 4th
    101.0 91.5 102.5 58.0 48.5 56.5 47.0 100.5 92.0 101.5 5th
    101.0 92.5 102.5 57.0 47.0 57.0 47.0 102.0 94.0 102.5 6th
    101.5 91.5 102.0 57.5 49.0 58.0 47.5 103.0 93.5 103.0 9th

    This round was relatively easy, as I ate a bit in the previous round. Let's see if I can continue losing.

    Total is 802.5 cm, a loss from the previous round

    3/12 DNW TRAVELING. Day 3 of baseball is an away game. Ate out at a local pub last night. Half a grilled chicken burger and all of the nummy house chips! Got in my steps. Leftover burger and coleslaw for breakfast. Gotta work hard at steps today as we have 1 less hour to do so lol. Have not weighed and unable to till Wednesday morning. I notice that today is last day of this round. I feel summer heat bloated but content. Tonights dinner out was penne chicken piccata and a side caesar salad. Only ate less then half.
    I have been reading all the struggles and insights and adore you all for putting your hearts out there! It helps. It really does. PS- I miss my rebounder....

    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!

    @clprieur As @deepwoodslady said, I am not the genius but maybe just dedicated. I joined in Round 6 or 7. @GrandmaJackie did it for years and then a few of us filled in periodically @TerriRichardson112 and @musicsax. But I do thank you for giving me credit. 😘 As I have said before, I keep it going for myself but love that EVERYONE is here with me.

    SW: 216.9

    3/3 216.9 (-0.0/-0.0) and holding after 5 days of downtrend. I am good with that! We were supposed to get 8 to 10 inches of snow in the next 24 hours. I was ready to be shut in....now it seems we might get a dusting! WOW!

    3/4 DNW (-0.0/-0.0) I was good all day until the snack fairy arrived along with her friend Bad Decision Maker....lots of salt and not enough water, the scale would NOT be friendly - so I'm not going to look at it!

    3/5 218.8 (+1.9/+1.9) Faced the scale this morning. A couple of days needed to reverse this trend then downward spiral again, would be nice. I need to get meals planned for the week....definitely the key to success!

    3/6 218.2 (-0.6/+1.3) I really dislike losing the same pounds over and over again. But, whose fault is it anyway? Good News - It's Monday and my projection says that I should see 215 ish later in this round..... Got back on the treadmill this morning...slow but got it done! Water, Water everywhere....now just drink it!!!

    3/7 218.6 (+0.4/+1.7) I came home and made this super healthy meal consisting of whole wheat pasta (not a lot), artichoke hearts, spinach and tuna. It was ok. My thoughts on super healthy meals - you really don't want seconds🙂 But at the end of the evening, I felt myself looking for something for a snack. I found a couple of cookies😉 So a half a pound is explained.

    3/8 219 (+0.4/+2.1) Came home to dinner that my husband cooked. He NEVER cooks. Maybe that "healthy" meal inspired him. He made a turkey meatloaf (it was really good) with mashed potatoes, soup and a salad. Normally I'd pass on the mashed and soup but I couldn't disappoint his efforts. Another half a pound.

    3/9 220 (+1.0/+3.1) Not the right direction but yesterday was a food day. Went to a fashion show where there was lots of wine and food (lunch). Didn't plan dinner so had leftovers from my husband's meal that he prepared. Rough week and totally off plan. Think I'm resetting to day 1. I'm making something with chicken breast today. Friday - no idea. Saturday we are going to take a tour of Wrigley Field and then go out to lunch....so that brings me to Sunday - Reset

    3/10 219 (-1.0/+2.1) Skipped the chicken, had a craving for ribs so prepared in the instant pot. Today will get some sort of fish. Resetting on Sunday.

    3/11 218.9 (-0.1/+2.0)

    3/12 219.5 (+0.6/+2.6) Well, I'm glad this round is over :)
