    @SModa61 Your fire alarm reminded me of college. Every quarter during FINALS WEEK there was a fire drill! 833 girls going down stairs at 2:30 in the morning and standing around in whatever state of (un)dress until all rooms were checked! Then walking back up! I lived on the 15th floor. I was in better shape at least.

    I was amazed at how many came out just wearing the hotel robe and slippers!

    9/29 ⚖️ 135.4
    Yesterday was a do-nothing day. Went to a “pool party” visiting with two wonderful friends from work (I retired 1/2019). They are now retired too. Wonderful day! Laid around the pool and visited… I ate very healthy. Water, Egg salad and no dessert. But also, no walking or exercise yesterday - just dead weight. Played bridge-ate 1 sugar cookie and one glass of white wine. Not worth the indulgence. I just did a “quick entry” in MFP +cookie +wine because it was the easiest way…. Today is a new day and a new round! 😎

    Let’s do this! 💪🏻🙌🏻

    9/30 Yesterday was another do-nothing day re: NO Exercise. I had this urge to get organized. Worked all day in my house/couldn’t stop. Picked up GS from school and we chatted over sugar-free snowballs. Day was over then. Perfect macros, 1237 calories, 5.2k steps, but no movement/workouts yesterday. But…. Tennis and walking today!

    It's hard to build new habits. It's hard to create and maintain a healthy diet. It's hard to stay focused & push through days/weeks. It’s hard to stay motivated. And that's if you're “feeling” 100%. If you're not mentally / emotionally feeling well, it's almost impossible.

    I don’t know why I chose not to exercise yesterday or not to get my steps in…. I had the time, but I didn’t do it. Not gonna brood about it. But I definitely needed to FEEL organized. I do now and so… will “move” today.

    Let’s do this! 💪🏻🙌🏻
    🛑🎢!
    ———————————

    10/1 So yesterday I played tennis then walked 5 miles in the afternoon …. 16.8 K steps (7+ miles), 685 move calories, 183 move minutes and ✅ macros. TIRED! 1063 cal by 7:20pm so I had to find another healthy 200 cal somewhere… added a butter bite. 1263! Today, I probably won’t hit my steps/move because we have to travel half the day to take care of a project… But, I think I accomplished enough 9/30 for two days but then again, I did nothing two days previous… 😎

    I was very tempted to go with my DH after dinner last night for ice cream from our favorite local shop… I deliberated for 10 min and finally said no - but it was only because I was too tired. Shame on me! Had nothing to do with self-control. 🤣😎 Well, maybe a little! Cause I really think I would’ve indulged if I wasn’t so tired.

    One more day and it is scale time again! Let’s go!

    NSV: I’m feeling healthy, strong… and positive. Staying “even” sits well. Just putting 1 foot in front of the other and getting it done… staying the course.

    Be kind to yourself and most of all keep pushing on. Today I will be grateful ! 🥰

    Let’s do this! 💪🏻🙌🏻

    10/2 ⚖️ 135.4 Slow moving train.

    Managed to get 9.5k steps. 1877 cal. Lots of protein. Burned only 387 exercise cal. 51 ex minutes. Couldn’t get in any groove once we got home from travel. I know I didn’t drink enough water yesterday…. Will increase today.

    Emotions in check. NGL the ⚖️ was disappointing…. So will believe in the process and stay positive…. With my intake,macros,and movement, it will get better! Planning an active and grateful day today. Tennis, walking, 🏋️‍♀️🍀

    Let’s do this! 💪🏻🙌🏻
    🛑🎢!
    ———————————

    10/3 12.4k steps, 2 1/2 hrs tennis, 1421 cal, burned 1121 exercise calories. I went over calories yesterday because I ate extra protein… Hungry from the days activities… Macros✅

    Playing tennis this morning then starting to pack/get organized for our trip. I’m maintaining a very positive can-do attitude. The weather is supposed to be 50 to 70° the entire weekend without a cloud in the sky… Feeling blessed beyond measure

    NSV Bother scale has not cooperated, I feel like I’ve lost a full size in my clothes… Feeling “clean”. I must keep reminding myself that feeling “clean”, is so much more satisfying than feeling “full”! Feeling disciplined, also feels so much better than feeling doubtful and scattered. Feeling disciplined, provides a mental “confidence” that I am starting to recognize. The battle is won in your mind!

    Y’all have a great day!

    Let’s do this! 💪🏻🙌🏻

    10/4 I suspect a stall is more about a test of resilience, fortitude, character and consistency. Everything starts in the mind. Stay focused!

    Yesterday my activity plan did not work out… I played tennis in the morning and then I was asked to play in the evening… So I didn’t do my L O N G walk because I didn’t want to over-do it for tennis…. Then evening tennis was canceled! I did not get my steps in…
    587 exercise cal, 75 exercise min, 5.4k steps, consumed 1466 cals, macros✅. I am mainly concerned about my protein and carb macros… As long as I’m under in carbs and close to 100g protein, I am good to go! Today: tennis, steps, packing!
    … ⚖️ tomorrow before leaving for the mountains!

    10/5 ⚖️ 134.6 Less than a lb. so far…. ?! Sheesh! But still under 135! Leaving for Vacay! Hope to return under this weight. Will eat heathy and hike as much as possible! Yes, I’ll still track and will make sure to not go hungry. I’m not a big carb eater anyway… so I plan on fabulous, delicious protein! Feeling 💯off of sugar and all processed foods.

    Yesterday-11k steps, 120 ex minutes (tennis), 726 ex cal and ate 1401 cal. Macros✅. A little over on cals but ate healthy! Lots of protein. Feeling 🙌🏻💪🏻!

    10/6 Yesterday I planned well for the drive… 8 ounce ribeye, egg salad made with nonfat plain greek yogurt, Beef jerky and pork rinds. Macros✅. 1227 cal. 💦💦💦…. No exercise… car all day. Blah in the car but made it to our room by 9:30. Slept REALLY well.

    Ready for our hiking journey today! Gorgeous day in the Ozarks!

    Delicious looking oatmeal/chic chip cookies in our room 😳… I gave mine to my husband… 💪🏻

    (Trail prep: packed beef jerky, egg wrap, raw almonds, LMNT)

    Let’s do this! 💪🏻🙌🏻
    🛑🎢!
    ———————————

    10/7 YESTERDAY = wonderful day. 17.7k steps. 1979 cals. But WAY off on macros…. 20 net carbs too much. Good first VACAY day for sure even tho had 2 spritzers @ dinner which sent my carbs into over-drive. Vacay “feels” ENOUGH!!

    Peaceful with nature. Feeling alive and plentiful. Grateful. Mostly wooded hiking. Not as many vistas as I had hoped. Too early for fall color but terrific anyway! Perfect weather.

    We took a photo, trying to re-create a photo that I was in 60 years ago… Emotions were overwhelming. Tears rolling. 60 years ago at this EXACT spot with my family. Felt my love for my parents GUSH. (Both gone for 20+years, but surely never forgotten). Faced a few fears today, too. (Heights & vertigo) We can all do hard things when/if we choose. I felt strong today. Don’t look now but I believe the 🎢 has been DEFEATED! Blessed.

    Affirmations: I WILL get to 128 AND maintain! I want every part of my being connected. Emotionally strong, I put my health first. I can/will make solid choices. I can choose in context…. Slow down and be mindful.

    Learning from all of you!

    Let’s do this! 💪🏻🙌🏻

    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.

    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

    SW RND 237 128.0
    9/29 128.0 Breakfast out was cancelled and we will be taking friend to Great Greek today. We finally ate around 3 yesterday afternoon at Jimmy John’s-I love the #9 Unwich! no chips but even ate a yucky WM oatmeal cookie and am under my carb limit of 25g TC
    9/30 128.0 Last night a group of people in the neighborhood presented a play. It was entertaining and we also celebrated the 12th anniversary of the Social and Dance Club. Everyone was given a “lunch” bag with a tuna slider, chips, and after the play a small piece of cake. I was strong and ate none of it! YAY ME!
    10/1 128.0 Woke up before 4:30 with a headache, tried to get comfortable and go back to sleep but it didn’t work. Finally got up and took my Fosamax and went to sleep in my recliner. Woke a little after 6. Still had h/a so took some headache relief. I’m good now. 😁
    10/2 128.5 I realized at 6 last night that I hadn’t been drinking enough water. Had only had one quart instead of my usual 4. Fixing that today!
    10/3 128.5 Did better with water but not the usual amount.
    10/4 128.5 I expect an uptick tomorrow due to absurd food behavior yesterday.
    10/5 129.5 And there it is.
    10/6 129.5 Did a couple more errands yesterday so had more steps than average but still not a many as I should. 66*F at 6AM. What a lovely morning. I promised a friend I would be at water fitness this morning at 9.
    10/7 130.0 WF yesterday was exhausting since I haven’t done anything physical in months. Golden Corral at 4pm

    Date/weight/comment

    09/29 - 155.6 - Wow, the only thing I can think is I did a lot of moving of furniture, etc. on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. I woke up really sore this morning. I did not eat a lot of salt over the past few days and my calories have stayed between 1100 and 1400 calories for the past 2 weeks. I'll be drinking plenty of water today.
    09/30 - 154.1 - This is better, but I'm still not real happy. I'll be tracking everything again this weekend.
    10/01 - 153.4 - OK, well I did not eat great last night. My stepdaughter and her husband brought over gourmet grilled cheese, tomato soup, and cookies. I didn't go overboard, but I will probably see a bounce in the next day or two.
    10/02 - 153.8 - There is the little bounce. I hope this is it. Water, water, water.
    10/03 - 153.6 - I just need to keep my steps, food, and water in focus.
    10/04 - 153.2 - I did well yesterday. I plan the same for today.
    10/05 - 152.9 - I have lunch with a client today at a new restaurant. I've checked the menu and have figured out my best option.
    10/06 - 152.7 - My client had to reschedule lunch, so I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich from a local restaurant. However, I've realized I need to stock our office freezer with a couple healthy frozen dinners so I'm not stuck trying to find something healthy to eat close to my office. I usually pack my lunch.
    10/07 - 152.9 - I had pizza last night, so this is probably some sodium.

    Ok, good for me! So, I took a nice long walk through fields and woods with my new walking partner, who was the reason for the trip on Wed. He’s 14 months old, and he has a name but I’ll be changing it soon, so I’ll just introduce him as “the new boy in town.” 😊

    10/06 -188.0- (Trend weight 188.2) Well, it is exactly as I expected so I have my work cut out for me. My menu is pre-logged and I’ve already done 21 minutes of my planned exercise. Handymen will be here any minute so more exercise will likely be late tonight. No worries.

    10/07 -186.8- (Trend weight 188.1)I forgot to close out my day last night on MFP but I had an okay day. Scale is going back down from the travel day. My exercise was limited to just 20 minutes of aerobic dance due to the handymen being here so late. Today will be a slow rainy relaxing day but I may go check up on my older friend today and spend a little time with her. If all goes well and as planned, my weigh-in tomorrow should be okay, or even something I’ll be proud of. Tonight I hope to get some snuggled up reading in with a nice cup of hibiscus tea.

    Fri.29.09:
    After my revelation yesterday about certain foods, I ate all of the foods. 🙃 High carb, high sugar, over my calories, and no workout. No excuses, it happened. Today’s a new day to make better choices.

    Sat.30.09:
    Yesterday was messy (SD is here, has disordered eating tendencies. I'll be eating what they eat for a few days in order to not give her any reason to feel anything negative towards what she's having). That meant a pancake for breakfast, and fast food lunch.
    However, my partner did finally mention that I look like I've lost weight. I haven't discussed it with him much, other than after my visits to the dietitian. So he didn't know how much I've lost or anything. I kinda was interested to see how long it would take him to see a difference, considering he's constantly with me. So that felt good.
    Going out to riding today and to dinner tonight but I've had a look at the menu and have a plan to fit it in with the rest of the day so I'm not as far over as the past two days, especially with the calories burned riding. I know today's gain is primarily bloating from the fast food yesterday (I never have that much salt), so hopefully I should bounce back easily but with everything considered it may take the scale a few days to reflect it.

    Sun.01.10:

    Mon.02.10:

    Tues.03.10:
    Well, it was a tough weekend. I didn’t (or couldn’t) log a lot of things accurately. But, I’m back, and I have a lot to learn from next time a similar situation arises.

    Weds.04.10:
    Got my walk, workout, and stretching in yesterday. It’s raining here today, so I got in a morning workout, and will do some pilates or other cardio this afternoon if I’m not able to get a walk in. I don’t think I’ll hit my goal for this week, but I’ll be happy if I’m less than where I ended last round.

    Thurs.05.10:
    Workout, walk, and stretching done for yesterday ✔ The scale’s moving back in the right direction again.
    There are exactly 100 days until my birthday. I’ve always kind of used my birthday like ”new year’s day” as it is so close to the beginning of the year, and it’s my own personal new year. So I’ve got a few goals for the last 100 days - stretching, 6500+ steps, and 20+ active minutes every day. And hopefully I’ll hit 38 feeling younger, stronger, and more energetic than I have since I was a teenager.

    Fri.06.10:
    We’re getting somewhere 😅 Been doing well this week. Quiet weekend ahead, planning on cleaning the carpets and doing some gardening, so should be able to finish up this round the same or lower than I started it, which is good.

    Sat.07.10:
    No habits done yesterday. Had my evening planned, then my partner needed help checking the wiring on his dirtbike and fixing some of the connections because the lights weren't working. So that ended up being my evening and we didn't even fix the issue. I did get close on my steps at least.

    Sun.08.10:
    Sunday is always busy. Grocery shopping, meal prepping, and today we added in clothes shopping and a trip to a fabric/craft store for a few little projects. I can't believe all the Christmas stuff is out in the stores! Surely it's not that close to the end of the year already 🙃

    9/29: 157.6 lbs
    I am surprised I am the same weight I was at the end of round 230 when I was last involved with these challenges. Between then and now I have had my gallbladder removed after having a number of gallstone attacks. I had to be super restrictive before the operation to prevent an attack. But since the operation it has been a free for all and I need to turn it around. I am hoping that doing this challenge will get me back on track.

    9/30: 158.3 lbs
    Twas pizza night with guests who bought treats and I didn't care what I ate. It doesn't bode well for maintenance. I wish I knew how to flip that switch in my brain to weight loss mode.

    10/1: 158.3 lbs
    I am still not in weight loss mode. I think the problem is that I am not all that unhappy with the weight I am at the moment. I would like to get in to a healthy weight range but i don't seem to want it enough to do anything about it. The relief from the gall stone attacks after the op isn't helping either because I can basically eat whatever I want again and I think I am rebelling after having to restrict to try to not get an attack.

    10/2: 157.4 lbs
    Lots of walking yesterday and I had a big, salty meal dining out. This drop is probably dehydration.

    10/3: 157.6 lbs

    10/4: 157.4 lbs
    I skipped lunch at work and came home ravenous. I ate way too much when I got home then felt too full at dinner.

    I think I might try having breakfast, having a big late lunch followed by a light dinner. That would contrast with my current approach in which dinner is my largest meal. This new routine might be a better fit for my day and my appetite.

    I played pickleball for the first time yesterday. I found it fun and a good work out. I need a lot more practice before I can join a social group though.
