    SW RND 218 -

    Diet goal: YES to: Whole foods and plant-based.............No to: Ultra-processed foods and added sugar, except for the really good desserts where it's worth it. Meat and animal products are out until the end of March to help me fast-track my progress on getting better at the whole foods, plant-based BASE that I want my diet to stay at long term.
    Movement goal: Some gentle strength training and cardio every day. This round I'm counting house cleaning as cardio.
    Weight goal: maintain between 120-125. I made it 123.4 lbs at the end of RND 217 :smiley:

    3/23 DNW - good day yesterday. Lots of tofu at dinner - I liked it so much I went back to fry up seconds? Who am I?

    3/24 DNW I had visions of broccoli as I was falling asleep last night. In a previous weight loss diet kick I had visions of bruschetta. Anyway, I'm converted and committed to staying dairy free indefinitely, and very light on animal products. I feel too good to want to go back right now. I realized yesterday that I've basically been doing the Daniel Fast. I've played with enough cashew cream and cheese recipes that I haven't missed cheese too much and soy milk is surprisingly good. I'll have to learn how to make a dairy-alternative tres leches cake that rivals the bakery. Maybe that'll be a goal for after Easter. Watch me regain the 15 pounds I just lost trying to perfect a dairy free tres leches cake.

    Thank you @quiltingjaine for another round!

    💪🏋️‍♀️🤸‍♀️🎵💃👗👨‍👩‍👧‍👦💗🌻🏖🙏

    First G :) al: Hit the 160's (again)
    179 / 178 / 177 / 176 / 175 / 174 / 173 / 172 / 171 / 170 👉 169

    Stick to Plan:
    • Calorie cycle for a weekly average of 1200 to 1500
    • Exercise: Row, Walk, Bike, Weights, Snowshoe, Dance, Jazzercise
    • Water: Shoot for 80oz per day
    • Binge-Free & Sugar-Free for 100 days
    • Lots of veggies and protein, some fruit (very little processed foods or simple carbs which I hardly have anyway)
    • I need to figure out a way to get more fiber, especially from grains.

    March 23 - Day 15: 175.7
    March 24 - Day 16: 174.9

    If I quit now, I will soon be back to where I started. And when I started I so desperately wanted to be where I am today.

    Round 217 End Weight: 175.6
    Round 218
    3/23: 175.7 Row/Bike✔ Water✔ Calories Maintenance (1700). I just love the start of a new 10 days. I'm going to try my best to lose 2 pounds this round, but I will be happy with any loss. We shall see....

    3/24: 174.9 Row/Bike✔ Water✔ Calories✔ I am happy to see a drop this morning. I optimistically crossed off the 175's from my first-goal tracking above. ;) Right when things are starting to click is when I lose it many times. One thing that's helping, and hopefully will make this time different, is calorie cycling (average 1200 to 1500 calories) which I think fools my body from thinking I'm starving, but also allowing myself (AND tracking it) to eat at or a little below maintenance on those days where I feel a binge coming on. I'm slowly losing that all-or-nothing mentality of thinking every day has to be what I perceive as perfect or I failed. Patience, Patience, Patience - some of you who have made it to the promised land of your goal weight, and have maintained it, say this a lot. :) I appreciate you sharing your experiences so much. I think the more I stick to my plan and start seeing positive results more often, the more patience I will have. I just have to get to that point before giving up! I feel this is the time I will do it - now that I said that, I'm ready to prove it to myself!

    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)! Part of this challenge, too, is if I do have a slip, that I don't revert back to old habits of bingeing for days/weeks/months. I will acknowledge the slip, celebrate that it didn't derail me, and just keep on keeping on.
    I want to see what happens when I don't give up!

    @refactored You need to drink water. Don’t worry about the other people. Take care of yourself! As my daughter used to say, “You do YOU, Boo!” I care eater with me whenever I leave the house. When I worked, I took a gallon to work every morning and drank it before I left in the after noon.

    @RockinRobyn672 I feel you. Yesterday I succumbed to afternoon snacking at work for the first time in a long time. I had brought with me a ziplock of mixed almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds and apricots that was probably 2000+ calories in total contents and meant to last for a week. I ate until my stomach wouldn't take anymore, about half the bag. When dinner time arrived I was turned off from any more fat and only wanted plain vegetables. So, the point of sharing that is, maybe let yourself give in if your craving fits your needs.

    I like Lara Bars because most of the recipes are no added sugar and I haven't had to give them up on my vegan experiment. They're also one of the most economical of the bars at a little over a dollar per bar. They are usually high carb (sweetened with dates) so I like them in the afternoon for a pick me up. Wasabi peas are low cal and make you eat slowly because they're flavor is strong. Nori/seaweed is basically zero calories and a good source of iodine.

    To stave off the snacking: I keep a tea kettle nearby and just keep drinking tea to give my lips and throat something to do. Likewise, any strong flavored drink like kombucha mixed with la croix helps me avoid snacking. Also, cubicle calisthenics: pump out a quick set of push ups and take a walk to the bathroom as my heartrate recovers and by the time I'm back my snacking desire can be gone.

    3/23 - 179
    The blasted wagon threw me right off last night. Emotional eating snack binge. But I’m climbing back on and am going to try to hang on for the rest of the round.

    3/24 - 180
    That’s Wed. evening on the scale. Yesterday was better, not perfect. Sometimes I really think that all the tracking and thinking about food and macros and calories all the time makes me more snack-prone because, yep, I’m thinking about food all the time—what I ate, what I should eat, what I will eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, what I shouldn’t eat,… I know the research says tracking = weight loss, but I’ve been doing it faithfully for years now, lost a lot, then regained some despite tracking, am maintaining at higher than I like while tracking faithfully. It’s almost as if knowing my intake lets me give myself permission to eat because, hey, I’ll be over goal but still under maintenance, or just a smidge over…. I don’t know, just thinking through the keyboard.

    @SheilaBoneham You can tell from your posts that you've been doing this long enough to know what the research says and how your body handles things so nothing I can add really helps. I just feel your frustration. Have you tried not tracking with knowing you are still on a weight-loss journey and see if it works. I tried this not too long ago, because like you, I was tired of tracking and being so focused on food, and wanted to see what it felt like to just go about my day not super focused on what I'm eating, etc. Unfortunately, my control-freak-self couldn't handle it. I needed to see that I was hitting my target each day to keep going. Good luck on finding the right balance as best you can on this crazy journey.

    Yes completely to this! I can attest to feeling the same about all of that. I'm currently taking a brief hiatus from strict tracking to try to get out of this loop. Best wishes as you figure out what works for you.

    Well...here we are again! This will only be a half round for me, we leave for Mexico on the 28th and return on the 3rd...I'll join in R219 when I get back. Just want to keep consistent for the next few days and maybe get one more lb off.

    51yrs - Female - 5'5"
    Goal Weight - to hang out somewhere 145-150
    R217 EW 3/22 - 143.2

    3/23 - 142.2 - another nice little drop after 2 weeks of plateau around 175. Got all my summer clothes out and organized for our trip...quite a few of my tops are too big...all the bottoms that I was squeezing into now fit again...amazing what 15lbs can do! Icky rainy weather again today, will get the dog out for a walk...and might do some repetitive bending/squatting in the backyard when the rain lets up to start the spring doody clean up now the snow is disappearing.
    3/24 - 142.0 - good day yesterday! Sun is out today so we will try to hit the trails...not sure what kind of shape they will be in with the rain and warmish temps the last few days...might be a bit janky with frozen compacted snow but I will bring my boot spikes....and try not to fall 4 days before vacation (did that once years ago and had a hand sized bruise on my hip/butt...not cute in a bathing suit!!

    3/24 – 143.8 lbs – Well, looks like I didn’t have much to say yesterday! I haven’t been doing very well in terms of eating the past two days. Figures, after I wrote about “not bingeing” in my last entry in the last round! The day after I wrote about that I started feeling an extreme hunger, especially for carbs!! I seem compelled to keep eating, all day long! I am not “bingeing” per se, but close to it, if that makes sense to anyone else on here who has binge eating disorder......

    ....Better than living off of cheese strings and Diet Pepsi!

    @clprieur It does make perfect sense. I know you were probably half-joking with your it's "better than living off of cheese strings and diet pepsi," but when you said it, I thought I would mention my experience. I was hooked on diet coke and diet dr pepper for probably 30 years. I had to stop them because of stomach issues. Even though it didn't solve all my bingeing issues, I could tell that the carb/sugar cravings did subside some when I was no longer drinking "diet" anything. Just a thought IF you are still drinking diet drinks.

    @SheilaBoneham You and me both, gurl. Make room for me on the wagon, and give me a hand up! You and I can help each other try to be a bit more successful today. Although in reading the posts on here it seems like there are a few of us who are struggling! I think we need to focus on the positive, look for the small wins, and try to just keep moving forward (and not fret about our past mistakes). We got this!! <3

    As we used to say on the WW forum. “We’ll circle the wagons and pick you up!”

    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
