    3/13: Current weight: 158.2 (original weight 184 with goal of 135 ultimately)

    I have been struggling through a painful plateau since November and it has really been daunting. The weight loss for me is painstakingly slow due to my lack of exercise. I have no energy to exercise and my goal for this year is to implement movement to quicken the weight loss and also to strengthen myself. I have a hard time with energy. I am glad to join this challenge so I can be held more accountable to my daily food intake!!

    @peggyfarrar1 I have also had no energy since last summer when I had an illness and surgery. I think my lack of energy was as much mental as physical. I've just now started back exercising but I'm doing it different this time. First, I'm only doing what I enjoy so it doesn't seem daunting. I have a Waterrower that I love, a recumbent bike which is easy on your body, a treadmill plus I walk outside and at the beach. I use 5 and 10 pound dumbbells. I turn the music up loud and just dance, and I'm about to join jazzercize again, and lastly I'm snowshoeing again. So, all exercise that I enjoy. Second, I don't push myself. I started off just rowing 5 mins, then increased every day. I can now go a little longer, and now that it's become habit again to exercise, I actually look forward to it. And, as you mentioned, I can really tell I lose much faster which keeps me motivated. You didn't say if you have an illness that is affecting your energy so I know that can be very difficult. I hope you find the type of exercises that you enjoy that will get you going and motivated. Hopefully this helps a little - good luck!!

    Editing to add - And congratulations on the amount of weight you have lost!!!

    Thank you @quiltingjaine
    SW 140.2#
    GW 139.0#
    Consistent strength training, plant based unprocessed food, increase hydration

    3/13 140.6# Overate pasta last night. Overall it was good day with calories but the pasta made me feel terrible in the evening. I hate when I make stupid choices. My GS calls them Red choices and this one was dark red. Today is a new opportunity for making green ones.

    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    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 over 5 years with amazing results!

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

    We are unstoppable not because we do not have failures but because we continue on despite them. - paraphrase of original quote by Beau Taplin

    Please join us starting on 3/13 for JUST GIVE ME 10 DAYS, when we will begin Round 217!

    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. You have only one hour to edit your post. 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

    SW RND 217

    Starting weight 3/12 157.3 - Lots of emotionally eating so I’ve been meditating lately…..hopefully this helps.
    3/13 156.5
    Breathe in deeply,
    And settle yourself into comfort. 
    Be here,
    One with your breath,
    One with you.
    Come inside,
    And uncover the peace within the stillness.  
    Today, choose peace instead of anger, 
    Love instead of hate.
    The sooner we give up these things, 
    The more quickly we align with peace.
    Let peace be your only option as you walk through this day.
    Peace always prevails.

    Round 216 (2nd) 217.6 lbs
    CW Round 217 (3rd) unknown around 218

    3/13 DNW TRAVELING. I have been attacked my the dreaded "in a/c out a/c" cold. Couldn't lay head down for sleep. Can't breathe. Sinuses exploding. Today is last ball game so I am masking up and going to make the best of it. The Blue Jays have won all three games. Let's hope for all four! Its a 2.6 mile walk to the park mostly on a trail and the rain is holding off. Therefore its another walk day. Lots of water and leftover penne chicken piccata dinner.

    100-Day Weight Tracking as a Binge-Free & Sugar-Free Human :)
    Bingeing is why I'm where I am now. I want to see the results with 100 days of no bingeing. I'm not talking about going over calories from overeating a little, I'm talking full-out bingeing. And that's not just on bad foods, even when I'm eating well, I'll binge. This will be extremely challenging but if I stick to it (and stay off sugar and simple carbs to stop cravings), there is no way I'm not going to see consistent weight loss during these 100 days (not to mention the health benefits)! I'll say right from the get-go, if I do slip, I will not punish myself, I will just move to the next day binge-free. However, my goal is NOT to binge.

    I want to see what happens when I don't give up!

    176.x stayed around another day - YAY!!. Another snow storm coming. Hopefully this is the last one. I love every season in Maine (even winter), but my Georgia roots kick in, even after 23 years in Maine, asking where are the flowers and leaves LOL. Because of covid and my illness/surgery last summer, and now my MIL's illness, it's been so long since I've been to Georgia, and I miss my family so much!! I'm a very fearful flyer. Even though I worked for Delta Air Lines for 30 years, and I still have free flight privileges, for years, I took Amtrak to Georgia because of my fear. I love trains but the trip was exhausting. I would leave about 4am to drive to NH, take CJ's bus to BOS, BOS to Penn Station, then overnight to ATL, arriving 30 hours later. Time to put my big girl panties on and fly!! ;)


    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    180s / 170s / 160s / 150s / 140s / 130s

    Oh my I feel this. I missed out nearly 3 years of visiting my family in Canada due to covid. I did get back last May but sadly wad for my daddy's funeral. I am not a good person to fly with. So I take lorazapam and I barely remember the 3 hour flight but remain awake. I return this May for a visit with momma and my son is here in Florida with me for 2 weeks. Love your driving plan. We do what we can....
