    My name is Donna. I am 62 years old and I live in the Midwest of the US. I am 5โ€™ 5โ€ tall.

    Start Weight (from March 1st, 2023 ): 191.6 (Re-doing March in April due to health issues)
    Goal Weight: 186.6 (5 pound loss)

    End of Challenge Weight: xxxxx
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 145-155 (Iโ€™ll know it when I get there!)

    Weight in blue makes me blue because itโ€™s a gain. Weight in fuchsia pink makes me feel cheery because itโ€™s a loss. Weight in black means no change.

    04/02-DNW-(Trend Weight: DNW)- They have taken away one of my bp meds but my bp is still running way way too low. I am sucking down water and eating pinches of salt. I am keeping my feet elevated over my heart. All of it helps but then it just dips back down again. I am still not allowed to do anything in the form of exercise. My overall daily calorie burn has only been in the 1800โ€™s or early 1900โ€™s and I can feel my pants getting a bit tighter. Losing weight and getting my glucose down (T2D) is challenging enough without these roadblocks! Tomorrow is travel to the same town as my heart failure clinic. I will be taking my bp machine in so cardiologist can download my numbers. The nurses will call me later with the most current advice. Iโ€™ve been trying to busy myself with some organizing projects to keep me up and moving. I hope this will all resove itself soon. I want my life back! As soon as I am cleared for exercise and I can get moving again, I will get on the scale. In the meantime, I donโ€™t need it to know that eating and laying down with your feet up constantly causes weight gain. Iโ€™ve got enough to be depressed about!

    04/12-193.2-(Trend Weight: 192.0)- Weighing in late after the holiday due to travel and time restraints. It was a good day yesterday. Diet was on point and I got plenty of steps/movement/exercise raking the yard and burning leaves. I will be working on that project over the course of many days. I think the uptick is just the โ€œdays later falloutโ€ or โ€œhangoverโ€, if you will, from days ago during the holiday and travel. Staying the course and hoping it will start reflecting that soon. The 180โ€™s are pretty angry right now that I left them in the dust.

    04/23-xxxxx-(Trend Weight: xxxxx)-
    04/30-xxxxx-(Trend Weight: xxxxx)-

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250โ€™s; 240โ€™s; 230โ€™s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180โ€™s; 170's; 160's; 150's
