    Hi Folks! My name's Darin, and I'm a 45 year old woman from Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA. I've done a past 100 days challenge before and did really well with it (then regained the weight) so wanted to rejoin and try again.
    Starting weight: 176.7
    Day 01-04/10—176.7
    Day 02-04/11—176
    Day 03-04/12—175.2
    Day 04-04/13—174.6 Went to get a mani/pedi today which was lovely. Made a terrific seared salmon for dinner with baked potato and am stopping eating right now! No more eating. That’s it. or drinking. Let’s see how it goes.
    Day 05-04/14—174.3 Succeeded with the no more eating last night. Also succeeded at moderation at an all-you-can eat buffet today (a ton of fresh vegetables and some fruit as well). Thus far the making good decisions is going well. But I think this downward trend is going to stop soon – I’ve lost all the water weight I’m going to lose. So now the work starts for real.
    Day 06-04/15—173.9 Work kicked my butt today. Thankfully Josh and I walked this morning so don’t have to try to exercise right now. Just have to try not to stress-eat the entire fridge and pantry…
    Day 07-04/16—174.2 Slight uptick but still met my goal weight so there’s that. Tough migraine day – had to take part of the day off from work today for bed rest. UGH.

    Week 1 Goal: 174.7
    Week 1 actual weight:174.2

    Day 08-04/17—175.2 another partial day at work today due to migraine, and I’m retaining water. Blergh. Between the two not feeling great. At least got out and walked, and I meditated today. That’s something.
    Day 09-04/18—175.2 migraine’s eased up and have stabilized with the weight. Now hopefully start to see a downward trend? Meditated again and was very moderate with lunch and breakfast. Will try to maintain for dinner.
    Day 10-04/19—175.2
    Day 11-04/20—174.7 I’m trying to be kind to myself with having felt so bad this week. I did have a ”woke myself up laughing” moment that I’m sure you’ll appreciate… I dreamt that I had gone into the office and was looking at a menu to pick out lunch. You know you’re counting calories IRL when your pick’s a clam chowder bread bowl with a bloomin’ onion topper!
    Day 12-04/21—173.9 went to a cheeseburger party yesterday and did well with moderation (just one burger, limited sides, didn’t go bananas when in front of the potato chips although could have. Then came home and didn’t continue eating because I wasn’t hungry. Victory!
    Day 13-04/22—174.4 another rough migraine day today.
    Day 14-04/23—174.7 Just going to have to get myself together for next week.

    Week 2 Goal: 173.7
    Week 2 actual weight: 174.7

    Day 15-04/24—176.1 Okay, so I blacked out and when I came to, I had eaten a full meal from Arby’s. in itself it wasn’t too bad calorie-wise, but sodium-wise it was devastating. Going out to play trivia at a local tavern and will get a moderate bowl – but still regretting last night.
    Day 16-04/25—174.7 Better today.
    Day 17-04/26—174.8
    Day 18-04/27—174.1 Tasty dinner tonight – grilled chicken and roasted veggies. Mmm.
    Day 19-04/28—174.1
    Day 20-04/29—173.2
    Day 21-04/30—174.2

    Week 3 Goal: 171.7
    Week 3 actual weight:174.2

    Day 22-05/01—173.8 Last night went out to Texas Roadhouse and had a semi-decadent dinner (ate bread and a full-fat side Caesar salad, but had the grilled chicken as a main). Going to try to be better today.
    Day 23-05/02—173.0
    Day 24-05/03—172.6 So doing a better job of limiting calories at the end of the night. It’s really hard but it’s working thus far. Weekend ahead will be a real test though. Snacking is a problem. A real, real problem. Let’s see… What is my work? my work is not eating when i'm not hungry. Can that be a thing? a double negative? it's really my failing - i eat because things taste good. kind of the WORST reason to eat!
    Day 25-05/04—171.8 At heart I’m a glutton, which is why I’m the size I am. I’ll be sitting around, and all of a sudden, I’ll think – “You know what’d be great right now? Buttered popcorn”. Or in the grocery store, passing the deli section, thinking “I know those wings taste pretty good; maybe grab a few for the drive home.” Even though wings are definitely not on my shopping list. It’s an ongoing struggle. Trying to find healthy things that also taste good – or stopping eating at a reasonable point – is a real challenge!
    Day 26-05/05—172.5
    Day 27-05/06—171.6
    Day 28-05/07—172.4 Long day today and frustrating wobbling around this weight. Hopefully next week helps see me shake it off. Have plans to go out for Mexican food for dinner so going to try to rein it in and be controlled – no chips/salsa, moderate main, no alcohol. That’s the plan, let’s see how it goes! I’ll report back in tomorrow. 😊

    Week 4 Goal: 172.7
    Week 4 actual weight: 172.4

    Day 29-05/08—172.4 Okay, mixed success at the Mexican restaurant yesterday. Did do some grazing on chips and salsa but had a fairly responsible main (grilled chicken/chipotle sauce, black beans). It was a ton of sodium, though, which is why I think the scale did what it did.
    Day 30-05/09—172.4 And hit a plateau. Got to try to get off this level but it will be hard with a couple nice meals ahead with my mom and my mother-in-law this weekend. Have to stay focused and not just go bonkers on carbs!
    Day 31-05/10—172.7 Damnit. When I wanted to move off the plateau I didn’t mean in this direction.
    Day 32-05/11—172.5 Happy Mother’s Day! I’ll be happy if I come out of this weekend without having gained weight – with two big meals with the two families… it’s a lot of eating!
    Day 33-05/12—172.3 Okay, no weight gain. I’ll take it.
    Day 34-05/13—173.4 There’s the weight gain. Was waiting for that. I did eat quite a bit this weekend. And a lot of sodium for dinner last night. This week is going to be a rough one. Going to have to adjust all my goals…
    Day 35-05/14—173.0

    Week 5 Goal: 170.7
    Week 5 actual weight: 173.0

    Day 36-05/15—173.0
    Day 37-05/16—171.0 yesterday had a horrible migraine. The nausea was so bad that I got super dehydrated and barely ate anything. So I think this dip is completely artificial. Still feel awful today. Bleh.
    Day 38-05/17—170.9 slowly getting better from this migraine. Still very nauseated. Just trying to take it easy.
    Day 39-05/18—170.7 had a lovely piece of salmon for dinner tonight. Mmm.
    Day 40-05/19—170.7 Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I’ve been doing some work, so lots of computer time (just like during the week). While I’ve been super productive, it’s been a bit on the sedentary side. Josh and I have a vacation coming up – we’re going to Reno. We’re going to spend our days out in nature, hiking, and our nights at the casinos. I’m really looking forward to it. Is it weird to pack a scale to bring on vacation? I mean I’ll have space in my checked luggage. But maybe a few days of “DNW” won’t hurt me either. I’ll have to mull this one over. My goal is to not gain weight during the vacation. I’m under no illusions – I am not going to lose any. But not gaining would be nice, given the drinking and decadent food options there will (presumably) be.
    Day 41-05/20—170.9 okay was a tad irresponsible last night with the pizza dinner but at least kept servings reasonable. So there was that? It’s also my birthday week so there’s going to be more eating out and lots of temptation. Wish me luck! And I'm definitely going to consider taking the scale on vacation. it may help to "keep me honest". :-)
    Day 42-05/21—169.8

    Week 6 Goal: 169.7
    Week 6 actual weight:169.8

    Day 43--05/22—170.0 Late night meeting for work today. Bleh.
    Day 44—05/23—169.4 It’s my Birthday! I turned 45 today 😊 We’re going out for celebratory dinner… hopefully will hold it together.
    Day 45—05/24—168.7 Had a lovely day yesterday! Now we’re getting ready for our vacation next week. Will be travelling to Reno for gambling and nature. 😊
    Day 46—05/25—167.9 Start of my vacation! We don’t leave until Tuesday, so plenty of time to pack and prepare. And rest! It’s nice to have time to relax around the house.
    Day 47—05/26—168.5
    Day 48—05/27—167.5 Okay, I decided I’m not packing my scale for the vacation as that’d be more stressful than relaxing (plus my scale is very heavy). So I’ve got a few DNW days coming up. My plan is to enjoy myself moderately – not go crazy overboard but not be too restrictive either. We’re going to be getting some exercise while birding, and if we don’t get enough, we’ll continue our daily walks. Reno’s supposed to have some great parks and a nice riverfront. I’m really looking forward to the change in environment.
    Day 49—05/28—167.4 Vacation day! Our flight leaves this evening.

    My goal is to be proud of my weight loss.

    Day 01 80.1 kg, I did my planned exercise but I overate a little bit (I'm tracking my intake), since I started tracking I've eaten out 4 times and I need to compensate for those times. I read "most people who lose weight will regain it within 5 years", I checked my old numbers and I'm 3.5 kg under what I weighed 5 years ago. I guess I'm in that category. I talked to my partner about my weight loss (something I'm trying to do less often).
    Day 02 80.0 kg, I ate below my ideal which should help me recover from previous overeating. I did my exercise sessions.
    Day 03 80.1 kg my eating is on track for the last 3 days but I need to recover from the previous 9 which averaged too high. I exercised and that's on track too. Disappointed that the scale is headed in the wrong direction but...
    Day 04 79.4 kg a big loss today. I did a lot of walking, I had sugary food for the first time in 8 days. I overate. Recently there have been 6 days when I overate a lot, I had sugary food 5 times. Coincidence?
    Day 05 79.8 kg just a normal day where I am good, no overeating and exercising is as required
    Day 06 80.4 kg I started two personal challenges, I had some sugary food because I won't be having sugary food for a while, so on Tuesday I gained...
    Day 07 80.6 kg my eating and exercise went well, still need to recover from the overeating episodes, maybe in 2-3 days that will happen
    Day 08 80.4 kg I had some treats and food I don't usually have, that's a negative, on the plus side I'm still exercising as I intended
    Day 09 80.3 kg I have a cold so I only managed half my exercise today, that's fine, eating was good.
    Day 10 80.2 kg another day when I ate properly, two days in a row, plus two exercise sessions.
    Day 11 79.7 kg a good day in terms of exercise and eating
    Day 12 78.7 kg I don't see a 1 kg loss very often, anyway I overate again, although my exercise was as planned
    Day 13 79.3 kg Another good day, exercise and diet were good. I've decided to attempt to lose 10 kg in 100 days - so this will move over to the next round. Starting tomorrow.
    Day 14 79.4 kg I ran the numbers to see whether I could lose 10 kg in 100 days and it seems iffy, however I'm not particularly hungry as I lose weight, so I guess I should just eat less. I overate and did my required amount of exercise. I looked at my intake graph and since day 1 there's been 7 days when I've overeaten.
    Day 15 79.7 kg I ate a bit too much and my exercise was less than required. 10 kg in 100 days: 10.3 kg to lose in 99 days. Can I do it? Probably.
    Day 16 79.6 kg I ate too much but my exercise was alright. I've decided to delay the 10 kg in 100 days idea until my weight loss 'settles down'
    Day 17 79.5 kg ate too much and didn't exercise at my desired level
    Day 18 80.4 kg whoa how did that happen? Maybe eating too much?
    Day 19 79.7 kg ate too much, exercise average is okay
    Day 20 79.9 kg
    Day 21 80.0 kg I'm now starting the lose 10 kg in 100 days challenge. Can I do it? Probably.
    Day 22 80.6 kg moderate gain but I'm not too concerned. 10.6 kg in 99 days? Probably.
    Day 23 80.4 kg, things are looking good in terms of eating. 10.4 kg in 98 days? Probably.
    Day 24 80.0 kg, I'm eating too much, 0.1 kg lost in 23 days. Anyway, 10.0 kg in 97 days? Probably.
    Day 25 80.1 kg, eating seems to be under control right now, 30 day weight average has dropped for 3 days in a row (personal best 118 days), 10.1 kg in 96 days? Probably
    Day 26 80.0 kg, eating under control 2 days, 10.0 kg in 95 days? Probably.
    Day 27 79.6 kg, 9.6 kg in 94 days? Probably
    Day 28 79.2 kg, 9.2 kg in 93 days? Graph says yes
    Day 29 79.5 kg, 9.5 kg in 92 days? Graph says yes
    Day 30 78.9 kg, I have food poisoning of some sort, I've lost my appetite and so my weight is dropping, when I start eating properly again I expect to gain a bit. Anyway, 10 kg in 100 days challenge looks good right now
    Day 31 78.1 kg, another major loss, this is going to ruin my 10 day average since it will increase when I recover, I want to beat my personal best of about 20 days of continuous losing
    Day 32 77.7 kg
    Day 33 77.5 kg, I've decided to pause the lose 10 kg in 100 days challenge, there are digestive problems and there's a heatwave where I'm living so I'm just not up to exercise right now
    Day 34 77.2 kg
    Day 35 77.4 kg
    Day 36 77.6 kg
    Day 37 77.5 kg
    Day 38 77.2 kg
    Day 39 77.5 kg
    Day 40 77.8 kg
    Day 41 77.8 kg
    Day 42 77.5 kg
    Day 43 78.2 kg
    Day 44 78.1 kg
    Day 45 77.5 kg
    Day 46 78.5 kg
    Day 47 78.3 kg
    Day 48 77.7 kg
    Day 49 78.1 kg
    Day 50 77.8 kg
    Day 51 77.5 kg
    Day 52 76.9 kg
    Day 53 77.5 kg
    Day 54 77.5 kg
    Day 55 78.5 kg
    Day 56 77.9 kg
    Day 57 77.7 kg So my recent health problem caused me to stop losing weight, I think it's time to start again. I've decided to give myself a challenge - lose 9.7 kg in 97 days. If it's working at the end maybe I'll add an extra 3 days and see if I can do 10 kg in 100 days. Unfortunately my health has not fully recovered so I may need a diagnosis. If that happens I'll stop the challenge. So starting today, I'm aiming to lose weight again. 9.7 kg in 97 days? I probably can do that.
    Day 58 77.6 kg
    Day 59 77.7 kg lose 9.7 kg in 95 days? Probably

    @dawnbgethealthy: Wow! Your photos are fabulous- what a great trip! And your results after were great- I hope I can do the same with my upcoming travels this summer. In the past I gained a bunch, never got back on track and kept gaining, so my plan is to do better this year- you've inspired me!

    @dawnbgethealthy: Wow! Your photos are fabulous- what a great trip! And your results after were great- I hope I can do the same with my upcoming travels this summer. In the past I gained a bunch, never got back on track and kept gaining, so my plan is to do better this year- you've inspired me!

    I feel like one sweats a lot in hot climates. I normally do gain a bunch of weight anyway, but had already gained so much over the past year. At home I am a 2-3 drink maximum or I throw up. In Mexico it seems to evaporate. We drank fancy cocktails ALL day at the pool or beach, cocktail before dinner, wine with dinner, liqueur after dinner, then drinks all night. I never seem to get drunk down there on those tasty calorie bombs. Red drink, yellow drink, blue drink, orange lol. They make them so pretty and yummy. My friend was drinking Pina Coladas. I don't like coconut so didn't have any of those, but they must have a gazillion calories!

    Where are you going this summer?

    Hi!
    I am Dawn. 63, 5'2"
    I have been at this tracking for quite awhile, on this particular thread for 15 out of the 19 iterations of it.
    I lost quite a bit (got to 130), but have been slowly gaining weight over the past 2 years despite my efforts.
    Highest weight was 207. Began on this thread at 198 pounds

    Week 1 Goal: 145.6 - My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it.
    Week 1 actual weight: 147.2 - started the week at 146.8

    Week 2 Goal: 145.6 - My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it and then go from there.
    Week 2 actual weight: 146.2 - Started the week at 148.0 - Hit my goal once

    Week 3 Goal: 145.6 - My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it and then go from there. Hit it one time during week 2. Hit below it this week
    Week 3 actual weight: 146.4

    Week 4 Goal: 145.6. My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it and then go from there.
    Week 4 actual weight: 147.6

    Week 5 Goal: stopping smoking week as of May 7
    Week 5 actual weight: 149.6

    Week 6 Goal: Didn't set one
    Week 6 actual weight: 151.0 - extremely early weigh in, so it might be inflated

    Week 7 Goal: Started the week at 149.4 Goal: Just to enjoy my time at the all-inclusive Cancun
    Week 7 actual weight: I was away, no scale

    Week 8 Goal:
    Week 8 actual weight: Away with no scale

    Day 57-06/04 - 151.0 - Not too bad for 2 weeks of indulging! Just spent a bunch of time catching up on everyone's posts. Still kind of tired today. Flights got so delayed that the following flights were missed and rescheduled. I was up at 5am on the first day of departure, and did not get home until 36 hours later with no sleep. I smoked at the resort btw as soon as I saw that there was an area for that. Glad that I had stopped for 2 weeks prior though, so I didn't have any trouble wanting to go out for a smoke during layovers on the way down there. Really great trip, of course completely broke now with no new paycheques in sight. I will work my little tail off this month to come up with my July 1st mortgage, bills, and looming July 4th property taxes.

    Day 58-06/05 - 151.6 - Weighed earlier than yesterday, otherwise it makes little sense that I had a gain. I was under in calories yesterday and very physically busy. I did have salad for dinner last night though, which for some reason always ups the scale for me. I will be eating salad every day now since I have so much growing in my garden. I use a tablespoon to measure dressing. I will "add calories" so that it lets me close the day. Not sure yet what I will eat today, working 2 jobs so I will for sure take something out of the freezer this morning.

    Day 59-06/06 - 149.4 - Well, that is better. Worked 2 jobs yesterday and then needed to get groceries and stuff afterward. So far I haven't had to go back to the Long Term Care job, but I do need to work lots in June to prepare for very heavy beginning of July bills (plus no earnings for 2 weeks while away). I think my new bar job is going to be fun, and I feel like my niche will be the after work crowd, so 4-8 shift with a 1 hour break between the 2 jobs to eat a little something, change and Zshuzh up. Kind of changing over my after work "dinner", I am having 4-5 water crackers with around 4 tablespoons of hummus to quiet hunger, then a bit of dinner. I started this before I went away, and am making sure to be stocked up on hummus at all times.

    Day 60-06/07 - 148.8 - ?? Okay, I'll take it. Normally I only gain weight. Is my body confused? No salad the last 2 days since I was pressed for time. Maybe that is weirdly the difference.

    Day 61-06/08 -

    Day 62-06/09 -

    Day 63-06/10 -

    Week 9 Goal: 146.8 - putting this in each week until I get back to my start weight of this 100
    Week 9 actual weight:


    started the 100 at 146.8

    Thoughts:

    Last round I had my normal goal of a 12 pound loss which is approximately 4 lbs per month. That comes to about 90 days leaving the other 10 open for special holidays and social occasions. In theory, it’s a good plan. In practice it is a Mountain to Crawl up. However, each 100 day round I am extremely grateful for any progress I can make, no matter how big or small. I am also grateful for all the support from all of you that I get on a daily basis. Working on my health has become my #1 priority. My main goals are to maintain my remission by staying cancer free and to keep my diabetes in control. Losing weight is key to both goals.



    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    Day 57-06/05-181.2-(Trend weight 184.5)

    Day 58-06/06-181.4-(Trend weight 184.2) I typed my weight today in the neutral black because I know it is just a fluctuation or a correction of itself. Yesterday was a day without a whole lot of activity but I did get in a morning Youtube workout before the guys arrived. Chicken for dinner again which kept me pretty satisfied last night. Today is pre-logged so hopefully I can stick to my guns and hit 180 point something soon. I would love to be teetering on the 170’s. Enjoy your day everyone. A little cooler in Northern Michigan today. Rain likely later (again).

    Day 59-06/07-DNW-(Trend weight DNW) Today is my normal no-weigh Friday. Yesterday was a so-so day. I did not follow my pre-logged foods and ended choosing not-so-wisely in most cases, even if it fit in my macros. I found my choices to be frivolous, lazy and not very fulfilling. I will make better actual choices today by pre-logging and actually STICKING TO IT!!! Exercise was mediocre at best but I did get a little bit in. Hard to do with contractors all day and my DGS arrived in the evening for an overnight. I did start today with another short youtube video before he woke up today.

    My goal is to be proud of my weight loss.

    Day 01 80.1 kg, I did my planned exercise but I overate a little bit (I'm tracking my intake), since I started tracking I've eaten out 4 times and I need to compensate for those times. I read "most people who lose weight will regain it within 5 years", I checked my old numbers and I'm 3.5 kg under what I weighed 5 years ago. I guess I'm in that category. I talked to my partner about my weight loss (something I'm trying to do less often).
    Day 02 80.0 kg, I ate below my ideal which should help me recover from previous overeating. I did my exercise sessions.
    Day 03 80.1 kg my eating is on track for the last 3 days but I need to recover from the previous 9 which averaged too high. I exercised and that's on track too. Disappointed that the scale is headed in the wrong direction but...
    Day 04 79.4 kg a big loss today. I did a lot of walking, I had sugary food for the first time in 8 days. I overate. Recently there have been 6 days when I overate a lot, I had sugary food 5 times. Coincidence?
    Day 05 79.8 kg just a normal day where I am good, no overeating and exercising is as required
    Day 06 80.4 kg I started two personal challenges, I had some sugary food because I won't be having sugary food for a while, so on Tuesday I gained...
    Day 07 80.6 kg my eating and exercise went well, still need to recover from the overeating episodes, maybe in 2-3 days that will happen
    Day 08 80.4 kg I had some treats and food I don't usually have, that's a negative, on the plus side I'm still exercising as I intended
    Day 09 80.3 kg I have a cold so I only managed half my exercise today, that's fine, eating was good.
    Day 10 80.2 kg another day when I ate properly, two days in a row, plus two exercise sessions.
    Day 11 79.7 kg a good day in terms of exercise and eating
    Day 12 78.7 kg I don't see a 1 kg loss very often, anyway I overate again, although my exercise was as planned
    Day 13 79.3 kg Another good day, exercise and diet were good. I've decided to attempt to lose 10 kg in 100 days - so this will move over to the next round. Starting tomorrow.
    Day 14 79.4 kg I ran the numbers to see whether I could lose 10 kg in 100 days and it seems iffy, however I'm not particularly hungry as I lose weight, so I guess I should just eat less. I overate and did my required amount of exercise. I looked at my intake graph and since day 1 there's been 7 days when I've overeaten.
    Day 15 79.7 kg I ate a bit too much and my exercise was less than required. 10 kg in 100 days: 10.3 kg to lose in 99 days. Can I do it? Probably.
    Day 16 79.6 kg I ate too much but my exercise was alright. I've decided to delay the 10 kg in 100 days idea until my weight loss 'settles down'
    Day 17 79.5 kg ate too much and didn't exercise at my desired level
    Day 18 80.4 kg whoa how did that happen? Maybe eating too much?
    Day 19 79.7 kg ate too much, exercise average is okay
    Day 20 79.9 kg
    Day 21 80.0 kg I'm now starting the lose 10 kg in 100 days challenge. Can I do it? Probably.
    Day 22 80.6 kg moderate gain but I'm not too concerned. 10.6 kg in 99 days? Probably.
    Day 23 80.4 kg, things are looking good in terms of eating. 10.4 kg in 98 days? Probably.
    Day 24 80.0 kg, I'm eating too much, 0.1 kg lost in 23 days. Anyway, 10.0 kg in 97 days? Probably.
    Day 25 80.1 kg, eating seems to be under control right now, 30 day weight average has dropped for 3 days in a row (personal best 118 days), 10.1 kg in 96 days? Probably
    Day 26 80.0 kg, eating under control 2 days, 10.0 kg in 95 days? Probably.
    Day 27 79.6 kg, 9.6 kg in 94 days? Probably
    Day 28 79.2 kg, 9.2 kg in 93 days? Graph says yes
    Day 29 79.5 kg, 9.5 kg in 92 days? Graph says yes
    Day 30 78.9 kg, I have food poisoning of some sort, I've lost my appetite and so my weight is dropping, when I start eating properly again I expect to gain a bit. Anyway, 10 kg in 100 days challenge looks good right now
    Day 31 78.1 kg, another major loss, this is going to ruin my 10 day average since it will increase when I recover, I want to beat my personal best of about 20 days of continuous losing
    Day 32 77.7 kg
    Day 33 77.5 kg, I've decided to pause the lose 10 kg in 100 days challenge, there are digestive problems and there's a heatwave where I'm living so I'm just not up to exercise right now
    Day 34 77.2 kg
    Day 35 77.4 kg
    Day 36 77.6 kg
    Day 37 77.5 kg
    Day 38 77.2 kg
    Day 39 77.5 kg
    Day 40 77.8 kg
    Day 41 77.8 kg
    Day 42 77.5 kg
    Day 43 78.2 kg
    Day 44 78.1 kg
    Day 45 77.5 kg
    Day 46 78.5 kg
    Day 47 78.3 kg
    Day 48 77.7 kg
    Day 49 78.1 kg
    Day 50 77.8 kg
    Day 51 77.5 kg
    Day 52 76.9 kg
    Day 53 77.5 kg
    Day 54 77.5 kg
    Day 55 78.5 kg
    Day 56 77.9 kg
    Day 57 77.7 kg So my recent health problem caused me to stop losing weight, I think it's time to start again. I've decided to give myself a challenge - lose 9.7 kg in 97 days. If it's working at the end maybe I'll add an extra 3 days and see if I can do 10 kg in 100 days. Unfortunately my health has not fully recovered so I may need a diagnosis. If that happens I'll stop the challenge. So starting today, I'm aiming to lose weight again. 9.7 kg in 97 days? I probably can do that.
    Day 58 77.6 kg
    Day 59 77.7 kg lose 9.7 kg in 95 days? Probably
    Day 60 77.3 kg, lose 9.3 kg in 94 days? Probably, although I haven't started exercising, I want to have an exercise session this evening, first session in about 2-3 weeks

    Hi Folks! My name's Darin, and I'm a 45 year old woman from Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA. I've done a past 100 days challenge before and did really well with it (then regained the weight) so wanted to rejoin and try again.
    Starting weight: 176.7
    Day 01-04/10—176.7
    Day 02-04/11—176
    Day 03-04/12—175.2
    Day 04-04/13—174.6 Went to get a mani/pedi today which was lovely. Made a terrific seared salmon for dinner with baked potato and am stopping eating right now! No more eating. That’s it. or drinking. Let’s see how it goes.
    Day 05-04/14—174.3 Succeeded with the no more eating last night. Also succeeded at moderation at an all-you-can eat buffet today (a ton of fresh vegetables and some fruit as well). Thus far the making good decisions is going well. But I think this downward trend is going to stop soon – I’ve lost all the water weight I’m going to lose. So now the work starts for real.
    Day 06-04/15—173.9 Work kicked my butt today. Thankfully Josh and I walked this morning so don’t have to try to exercise right now. Just have to try not to stress-eat the entire fridge and pantry…
    Day 07-04/16—174.2 Slight uptick but still met my goal weight so there’s that. Tough migraine day – had to take part of the day off from work today for bed rest. UGH.

    Week 1 Goal: 174.7
    Week 1 actual weight:174.2

    Day 08-04/17—175.2 another partial day at work today due to migraine, and I’m retaining water. Blergh. Between the two not feeling great. At least got out and walked, and I meditated today. That’s something.
    Day 09-04/18—175.2 migraine’s eased up and have stabilized with the weight. Now hopefully start to see a downward trend? Meditated again and was very moderate with lunch and breakfast. Will try to maintain for dinner.
    Day 10-04/19—175.2
    Day 11-04/20—174.7 I’m trying to be kind to myself with having felt so bad this week. I did have a ”woke myself up laughing” moment that I’m sure you’ll appreciate… I dreamt that I had gone into the office and was looking at a menu to pick out lunch. You know you’re counting calories IRL when your pick’s a clam chowder bread bowl with a bloomin’ onion topper!
    Day 12-04/21—173.9 went to a cheeseburger party yesterday and did well with moderation (just one burger, limited sides, didn’t go bananas when in front of the potato chips although could have. Then came home and didn’t continue eating because I wasn’t hungry. Victory!
    Day 13-04/22—174.4 another rough migraine day today.
    Day 14-04/23—174.7 Just going to have to get myself together for next week.

    Week 2 Goal: 173.7
    Week 2 actual weight: 174.7

    Day 15-04/24—176.1 Okay, so I blacked out and when I came to, I had eaten a full meal from Arby’s. in itself it wasn’t too bad calorie-wise, but sodium-wise it was devastating. Going out to play trivia at a local tavern and will get a moderate bowl – but still regretting last night.
    Day 16-04/25—174.7 Better today.
    Day 17-04/26—174.8
    Day 18-04/27—174.1 Tasty dinner tonight – grilled chicken and roasted veggies. Mmm.
    Day 19-04/28—174.1
    Day 20-04/29—173.2
    Day 21-04/30—174.2

    Week 3 Goal: 171.7
    Week 3 actual weight:174.2

    Day 22-05/01—173.8 Last night went out to Texas Roadhouse and had a semi-decadent dinner (ate bread and a full-fat side Caesar salad, but had the grilled chicken as a main). Going to try to be better today.
    Day 23-05/02—173.0
    Day 24-05/03—172.6 So doing a better job of limiting calories at the end of the night. It’s really hard but it’s working thus far. Weekend ahead will be a real test though. Snacking is a problem. A real, real problem. Let’s see… What is my work? my work is not eating when i'm not hungry. Can that be a thing? a double negative? it's really my failing - i eat because things taste good. kind of the WORST reason to eat!
    Day 25-05/04—171.8 At heart I’m a glutton, which is why I’m the size I am. I’ll be sitting around, and all of a sudden, I’ll think – “You know what’d be great right now? Buttered popcorn”. Or in the grocery store, passing the deli section, thinking “I know those wings taste pretty good; maybe grab a few for the drive home.” Even though wings are definitely not on my shopping list. It’s an ongoing struggle. Trying to find healthy things that also taste good – or stopping eating at a reasonable point – is a real challenge!
    Day 26-05/05—172.5
    Day 27-05/06—171.6
    Day 28-05/07—172.4 Long day today and frustrating wobbling around this weight. Hopefully next week helps see me shake it off. Have plans to go out for Mexican food for dinner so going to try to rein it in and be controlled – no chips/salsa, moderate main, no alcohol. That’s the plan, let’s see how it goes! I’ll report back in tomorrow. 😊

    Week 4 Goal: 172.7
    Week 4 actual weight: 172.4

    Day 29-05/08—172.4 Okay, mixed success at the Mexican restaurant yesterday. Did do some grazing on chips and salsa but had a fairly responsible main (grilled chicken/chipotle sauce, black beans). It was a ton of sodium, though, which is why I think the scale did what it did.
    Day 30-05/09—172.4 And hit a plateau. Got to try to get off this level but it will be hard with a couple nice meals ahead with my mom and my mother-in-law this weekend. Have to stay focused and not just go bonkers on carbs!
    Day 31-05/10—172.7 Damnit. When I wanted to move off the plateau I didn’t mean in this direction.
    Day 32-05/11—172.5 Happy Mother’s Day! I’ll be happy if I come out of this weekend without having gained weight – with two big meals with the two families… it’s a lot of eating!
    Day 33-05/12—172.3 Okay, no weight gain. I’ll take it.
    Day 34-05/13—173.4 There’s the weight gain. Was waiting for that. I did eat quite a bit this weekend. And a lot of sodium for dinner last night. This week is going to be a rough one. Going to have to adjust all my goals…
    Day 35-05/14—173.0

    Week 5 Goal: 170.7
    Week 5 actual weight: 173.0

    Day 36-05/15—173.0
    Day 37-05/16—171.0 yesterday had a horrible migraine. The nausea was so bad that I got super dehydrated and barely ate anything. So I think this dip is completely artificial. Still feel awful today. Bleh.
    Day 38-05/17—170.9 slowly getting better from this migraine. Still very nauseated. Just trying to take it easy.
    Day 39-05/18—170.7 had a lovely piece of salmon for dinner tonight. Mmm.
    Day 40-05/19—170.7 Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I’ve been doing some work, so lots of computer time (just like during the week). While I’ve been super productive, it’s been a bit on the sedentary side. Josh and I have a vacation coming up – we’re going to Reno. We’re going to spend our days out in nature, hiking, and our nights at the casinos. I’m really looking forward to it. Is it weird to pack a scale to bring on vacation? I mean I’ll have space in my checked luggage. But maybe a few days of “DNW” won’t hurt me either. I’ll have to mull this one over. My goal is to not gain weight during the vacation. I’m under no illusions – I am not going to lose any. But not gaining would be nice, given the drinking and decadent food options there will (presumably) be.
    Day 41-05/20—170.9 okay was a tad irresponsible last night with the pizza dinner but at least kept servings reasonable. So there was that? It’s also my birthday week so there’s going to be more eating out and lots of temptation. Wish me luck! And I'm definitely going to consider taking the scale on vacation. it may help to "keep me honest". :-)
    Day 42-05/21—169.8

    Week 6 Goal: 169.7
    Week 6 actual weight:169.8

    Day 43--05/22—170.0 Late night meeting for work today. Bleh.
    Day 44—05/23—169.4 It’s my Birthday! I turned 45 today 😊 We’re going out for celebratory dinner… hopefully will hold it together.
    Day 45—05/24—168.7 Had a lovely day yesterday! Now we’re getting ready for our vacation next week. Will be travelling to Reno for gambling and nature. 😊
    Day 46—05/25—167.9 Start of my vacation! We don’t leave until Tuesday, so plenty of time to pack and prepare. And rest! It’s nice to have time to relax around the house.
    Day 47—05/26—168.5
    Day 48—05/27—167.5 Okay, I decided I’m not packing my scale for the vacation as that’d be more stressful than relaxing (plus my scale is very heavy). So I’ve got a few DNW days coming up. My plan is to enjoy myself moderately – not go crazy overboard but not be too restrictive either. We’re going to be getting some exercise while birding, and if we don’t get enough, we’ll continue our daily walks. Reno’s supposed to have some great parks and a nice riverfront. I’m really looking forward to the change in environment.
    Day 49—05/28—167.4 Vacation day! Our flight leaves this evening.

    Hi Folks! My name's Darin, and I'm a 45 year old woman from Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA. I've done a past 100 days challenge before and did really well with it (then regained the weight) so wanted to rejoin and try again.
    Starting weight: 176.7
    Day 01-04/10—176.7
    Day 02-04/11—176
    Day 03-04/12—175.2
    Day 04-04/13—174.6 Went to get a mani/pedi today which was lovely. Made a terrific seared salmon for dinner with baked potato and am stopping eating right now! No more eating. That’s it. or drinking. Let’s see how it goes.
    Day 05-04/14—174.3 Succeeded with the no more eating last night. Also succeeded at moderation at an all-you-can eat buffet today (a ton of fresh vegetables and some fruit as well). Thus far the making good decisions is going well. But I think this downward trend is going to stop soon – I’ve lost all the water weight I’m going to lose. So now the work starts for real.
    Day 06-04/15—173.9 Work kicked my butt today. Thankfully Josh and I walked this morning so don’t have to try to exercise right now. Just have to try not to stress-eat the entire fridge and pantry…
    Day 07-04/16—174.2 Slight uptick but still met my goal weight so there’s that. Tough migraine day – had to take part of the day off from work today for bed rest. UGH.

    Week 1 Goal: 174.7
    Week 1 actual weight:174.2

    Day 08-04/17—175.2 another partial day at work today due to migraine, and I’m retaining water. Blergh. Between the two not feeling great. At least got out and walked, and I meditated today. That’s something.
    Day 09-04/18—175.2 migraine’s eased up and have stabilized with the weight. Now hopefully start to see a downward trend? Meditated again and was very moderate with lunch and breakfast. Will try to maintain for dinner.
    Day 10-04/19—175.2
    Day 11-04/20—174.7 I’m trying to be kind to myself with having felt so bad this week. I did have a ”woke myself up laughing” moment that I’m sure you’ll appreciate… I dreamt that I had gone into the office and was looking at a menu to pick out lunch. You know you’re counting calories IRL when your pick’s a clam chowder bread bowl with a bloomin’ onion topper!
    Day 12-04/21—173.9 went to a cheeseburger party yesterday and did well with moderation (just one burger, limited sides, didn’t go bananas when in front of the potato chips although could have. Then came home and didn’t continue eating because I wasn’t hungry. Victory!
    Day 13-04/22—174.4 another rough migraine day today.
    Day 14-04/23—174.7 Just going to have to get myself together for next week.

    Week 2 Goal: 173.7
    Week 2 actual weight: 174.7

    Day 15-04/24—176.1 Okay, so I blacked out and when I came to, I had eaten a full meal from Arby’s. in itself it wasn’t too bad calorie-wise, but sodium-wise it was devastating. Going out to play trivia at a local tavern and will get a moderate bowl – but still regretting last night.
    Day 16-04/25—174.7 Better today.
    Day 17-04/26—174.8
    Day 18-04/27—174.1 Tasty dinner tonight – grilled chicken and roasted veggies. Mmm.
    Day 19-04/28—174.1
    Day 20-04/29—173.2
    Day 21-04/30—174.2

    Week 3 Goal: 171.7
    Week 3 actual weight:174.2

    Day 22-05/01—173.8 Last night went out to Texas Roadhouse and had a semi-decadent dinner (ate bread and a full-fat side Caesar salad, but had the grilled chicken as a main). Going to try to be better today.
    Day 23-05/02—173.0
    Day 24-05/03—172.6 So doing a better job of limiting calories at the end of the night. It’s really hard but it’s working thus far. Weekend ahead will be a real test though. Snacking is a problem. A real, real problem. Let’s see… What is my work? my work is not eating when i'm not hungry. Can that be a thing? a double negative? it's really my failing - i eat because things taste good. kind of the WORST reason to eat!
    Day 25-05/04—171.8 At heart I’m a glutton, which is why I’m the size I am. I’ll be sitting around, and all of a sudden, I’ll think – “You know what’d be great right now? Buttered popcorn”. Or in the grocery store, passing the deli section, thinking “I know those wings taste pretty good; maybe grab a few for the drive home.” Even though wings are definitely not on my shopping list. It’s an ongoing struggle. Trying to find healthy things that also taste good – or stopping eating at a reasonable point – is a real challenge!
    Day 26-05/05—172.5
    Day 27-05/06—171.6
    Day 28-05/07—172.4 Long day today and frustrating wobbling around this weight. Hopefully next week helps see me shake it off. Have plans to go out for Mexican food for dinner so going to try to rein it in and be controlled – no chips/salsa, moderate main, no alcohol. That’s the plan, let’s see how it goes! I’ll report back in tomorrow. 😊

    Week 4 Goal: 172.7
    Week 4 actual weight: 172.4

    Day 29-05/08—172.4 Okay, mixed success at the Mexican restaurant yesterday. Did do some grazing on chips and salsa but had a fairly responsible main (grilled chicken/chipotle sauce, black beans). It was a ton of sodium, though, which is why I think the scale did what it did.
    Day 30-05/09—172.4 And hit a plateau. Got to try to get off this level but it will be hard with a couple nice meals ahead with my mom and my mother-in-law this weekend. Have to stay focused and not just go bonkers on carbs!
    Day 31-05/10—172.7 Damnit. When I wanted to move off the plateau I didn’t mean in this direction.
    Day 32-05/11—172.5 Happy Mother’s Day! I’ll be happy if I come out of this weekend without having gained weight – with two big meals with the two families… it’s a lot of eating!
    Day 33-05/12—172.3 Okay, no weight gain. I’ll take it.
    Day 34-05/13—173.4 There’s the weight gain. Was waiting for that. I did eat quite a bit this weekend. And a lot of sodium for dinner last night. This week is going to be a rough one. Going to have to adjust all my goals…
    Day 35-05/14—173.0

    Week 5 Goal: 170.7
    Week 5 actual weight: 173.0

    Day 36-05/15—173.0
    Day 37-05/16—171.0 yesterday had a horrible migraine. The nausea was so bad that I got super dehydrated and barely ate anything. So I think this dip is completely artificial. Still feel awful today. Bleh.
    Day 38-05/17—170.9 slowly getting better from this migraine. Still very nauseated. Just trying to take it easy.
    Day 39-05/18—170.7 had a lovely piece of salmon for dinner tonight. Mmm.
    Day 40-05/19—170.7 Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I’ve been doing some work, so lots of computer time (just like during the week). While I’ve been super productive, it’s been a bit on the sedentary side. Josh and I have a vacation coming up – we’re going to Reno. We’re going to spend our days out in nature, hiking, and our nights at the casinos. I’m really looking forward to it. Is it weird to pack a scale to bring on vacation? I mean I’ll have space in my checked luggage. But maybe a few days of “DNW” won’t hurt me either. I’ll have to mull this one over. My goal is to not gain weight during the vacation. I’m under no illusions – I am not going to lose any. But not gaining would be nice, given the drinking and decadent food options there will (presumably) be.
    Day 41-05/20—170.9 okay was a tad irresponsible last night with the pizza dinner but at least kept servings reasonable. So there was that? It’s also my birthday week so there’s going to be more eating out and lots of temptation. Wish me luck! And I'm definitely going to consider taking the scale on vacation. it may help to "keep me honest". :-)
    Day 42-05/21—169.8

    Week 6 Goal: 169.7

    Day 43--05/22—170.0 Late night meeting for work today. Bleh.
    Day 44—05/23—169.4 It’s my Birthday! I turned 45 today 😊 We’re going out for celebratory dinner… hopefully will hold it together.
    Day 45—05/24—168.7 Had a lovely day yesterday! Now we’re getting ready for our vacation next week. Will be travelling to Reno for gambling and nature. 😊
    Day 46—05/25—167.9 Start of my vacation! We don’t leave until Tuesday, so plenty of time to pack and prepare. And rest! It’s nice to have time to relax around the house.
    Day 47—05/26—168.5
    Day 48—05/27—167.5 Okay, I decided I’m not packing my scale for the vacation as that’d be more stressful than relaxing (plus my scale is very heavy). So I’ve got a few DNW days coming up. My plan is to enjoy myself moderately – not go crazy overboard but not be too restrictive either. We’re going to be getting some exercise while birding, and if we don’t get enough, we’ll continue our daily walks. Reno’s supposed to have some great parks and a nice riverfront. I’m really looking forward to the change in environment.
    Day 49—05/28—167.4 Vacation day! Our flight leaves this evening.

    Hi!
    I am Dawn. 63, 5'2"
    I have been at this tracking for quite awhile, on this particular thread for 15 out of the 19 iterations of it.
    I lost quite a bit (got to 130), but have been slowly gaining weight over the past 2 years despite my efforts.
    Highest weight was 207. Began on this thread at 198 pounds

    Week 1 Goal: 145.6 - My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it.
    Week 1 actual weight: 147.2 - started the week at 146.8

    Week 2 Goal: 145.6 - My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it and then go from there.
    Week 2 actual weight: 146.2 - Started the week at 148.0 - Hit my goal once

    Week 3 Goal: 145.6 - My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it and then go from there. Hit it one time during week 2. Hit below it this week
    Week 3 actual weight: 146.4

    Week 4 Goal: 145.6. My start weight from the last 100. Plunking this in each week until I hit it and then go from there.
    Week 4 actual weight: 147.6

    Week 5 Goal: stopping smoking week as of May 7
    Week 5 actual weight: 149.6

    Week 6 Goal: Didn't set one
    Week 6 actual weight: 151.0 - extremely early weigh in, so it might be inflated

    Week 7 Goal: Started the week at 149.4 Goal: Just to enjoy my time at the all-inclusive Cancun
    Week 7 actual weight: I was away, no scale

    Week 8 Goal:
    Week 8 actual weight: Away with no scale

    Day 57-06/04 - 151.0 - Not too bad for 2 weeks of indulging! Just spent a bunch of time catching up on everyone's posts. Still kind of tired today. Flights got so delayed that the following flights were missed and rescheduled. I was up at 5am on the first day of departure, and did not get home until 36 hours later with no sleep. I smoked at the resort btw as soon as I saw that there was an area for that. Glad that I had stopped for 2 weeks prior though, so I didn't have any trouble wanting to go out for a smoke during layovers on the way down there. Really great trip, of course completely broke now with no new paycheques in sight. I will work my little tail off this month to come up with my July 1st mortgage, bills, and looming July 4th property taxes.

    Day 58-06/05 - 151.6 - Weighed earlier than yesterday, otherwise it makes little sense that I had a gain. I was under in calories yesterday and very physically busy. I did have salad for dinner last night though, which for some reason always ups the scale for me. I will be eating salad every day now since I have so much growing in my garden. I use a tablespoon to measure dressing. I will "add calories" so that it lets me close the day. Not sure yet what I will eat today, working 2 jobs so I will for sure take something out of the freezer this morning.

    Day 59-06/06 - 149.4 - Well, that is better. Worked 2 jobs yesterday and then needed to get groceries and stuff afterward. So far I haven't had to go back to the Long Term Care job, but I do need to work lots in June to prepare for very heavy beginning of July bills (plus no earnings for 2 weeks while away). I think my new bar job is going to be fun, and I feel like my niche will be the after work crowd, so 4-8 shift with a 1 hour break between the 2 jobs to eat a little something, change and Zshuzh up. Kind of changing over my after work "dinner", I am having 4-5 water crackers with around 4 tablespoons of hummus to quiet hunger, then a bit of dinner. I started this before I went away, and am making sure to be stocked up on hummus at all times.

    Day 60-06/07 - 148.8 - ?? Okay, I'll take it. Normally I only gain weight. Is my body confused? No salad the last 2 days since I was pressed for time. Maybe that is weirdly the difference.

    Day 61-06/08 - 148.6 - When I was actually losing weight on my way down to 130 I was averaging a loss of .2 pounds per day. I don't want to get too excited, but I might somehow be losing weight after gaining for more than a year. My 3rd job has supplanted my 2nd job, and it is way less stressful, so there is that. Also, a nice top up from a fabulous vacation may have reset my stress levels. Today I don't work until 4pm, so I will be getting into the yard for most of the day. My legs haven't seen sun since Mexico since I have been working during sun hours. I did get a nice tan while away, so maybe I can maintain it. Completely off from all work tomorrow : - ) My neglected garden and yard are going to get some love.

    Day 62-06/09 -

    Day 63-06/10 -

    Week 9 Goal: 146.8 - putting this in each week until I get back to my start weight of this 100
    Week 9 actual weight:
