  • Happy Sunday! My first and last check in of the month, I am here, just been busy and haven't posted. Weight was up and down, saw 200.0 once, I didn't like that one bit, I think it was water retention, it had been really hot. Still pretty much stuck, but last week I broke my all-time most steps in a day, and I should have…
  • Sooooooo happy for you!!!! Jenn 😁
  • Happy Sunday! I missed checking in last week. Finishing the month with a gain. Been through some stress the last couple of weeks, but the issue is resolved, husband left his job and starts another this coming week, so it's all good. Hopefully HE will have less stress going forward. He has an exciting opportunity before…
  • Happy Father's Day! I flirt with 196, then pop up to 198. Rinse, repeat. I have been gaining and losing the same 2 lbs for 7 months now. Will the plateau ever break? I said it last wek, I am saying it again this week. Highest weight ever: 254 in October 1999. Lowest since 1991: 194.4 November 25, 2018, post gallbladder…
  • Whoa lady! Good for you!
  • Happy Sunday! I flirt with 196, then pop up to 198. Rinse, repeat. I have been gaining and losing the same 2 lbs for 7 months now. Will the plateau ever break? I did realize one thing. I have been stuck since my gallbladder surgery, yes... AND I quit nicotine. I was a former smoker turned vaper. I had vaped for 4 1/2…
  • Happy Sunday! I'm still stuck but I'm still in this! I've been following @SamanthaLouiseMence 's challenges for 2.5 years now. Thanks for keeping us going - if I didn't have this challenge every month I might have given up by now. I'm stuck but I'm still not quitting. In May I had more steps walked than any month since…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! Finished the month right where I started. Well that's better than a gain, right? I was up a bit then back to where I started. Highest weight ever: 254 in October 1999. Lowest since 1991: 194.4 November 25, 2018, post gallbladder surgery. Original starting weight: 243 in 2015. MFP Starting weight…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! And Happy Memorial Day, lest we forget. Well I lost a bit this week which puts me at the break even point. I'll take it! Hoping the downward trend continues, maybe? We shall see... Highest weight ever: 254 in October 1999. Lowest since 1991: 194.4 November 25, 2018, post gallbladder surgery.…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! I am up this week. No surprise. Wedding anniversary, husband's birthday and my birthday all this past week, we are out way through. Tomorrow we get serious again. I still log everything so I know the gravity of my transgressions. A few days of indulgences causes a gain, but weeks and months of…
  • Happy Mother's Day, everyone! Still here, same story. Still trying. I am more stubborn than the fat this time. Highest weight ever: 254 in October 1999. Lowest since 1991: 194.4 November 25, 2018, post gallbladder surgery. Original starting weight: 243 in 2015. MFP Starting weight December 25th, 2016: 233. Goal: 180 in…
  • Looks like you and I are still two peas in a pod, I'm just stuck a few pounds higher than you. We're both 'stuck' but neither of us are quitting. I'm in if you are! Let's just muscle through it. Things will move in the right direction, eventually! {{{Hugs!}}} Jenn
  • Happy Sunday! I am here...still...longest plateau ever. 6 months gaining and losing the same 3 lbs., over and over. Maybe I'll budge soon. Walked more in April than any month since I started MFP, so I am working harder. Trying to change up food choices some, and my sleeping has been kind of off. Working on that, sleep is…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! Well I lost a bit this week but still up on the month, just over half a pound. Not awful, but I am still just stuck. This is one long plateau. Had a good week and a great weekend. My son, the younger of my 2 kids, turned 25 yesterday and he came over to spend the evening with my husband and me…
  • Happy Tuesday, everyone! I forgot to check in on Sunday - again. Easter and family stuff and all that. I'm frustrated. I'm logging all my eating. I keep within my calorie allowance most days (I don't exceed it any more than I did when I was losing weight), and if I earn 'extra' calories with activity, I don't necessarily…
  • Happy Tuesday, everyone! I forgot to check in on Sunday. Been kind of a stressful few days, my husband is unexpectedly out of work. In the long run I think it's a good thing but change of any kind is never easy. We'll be OK and he'll find something in short order, he's got skills that are in high demand. Still, any…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! I am still here. Stuck like a broken record. In all honesty I have been a bit sloppy with my calories lately. When I get discouraged with my lack of progress I sabotage myself. I still log everything, so I know how much I have overdone it. I have kept up with my increased activity since the new…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! Still here. Still stuck. I gain and lose the same 2 lbs over and over. Still... Not giving up. Looking at NSV. Tried on an older pair of jeans the other day. No way I can wear them, way ugly baggy. Shirts I like but used to be a bit too snug, fit nicely now. Time soon to see if summer clothes fit or…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! Still here. Still stuck. I gain and lose the same 2 lbs over and over. Summer is coming! Time for more fishing, kayaking and camping! Highest weight ever: 254 in October 1999. Lowest since 1991: 194.4 November 25, 2018. Original starting weight: 243 in 2015. MFP Starting weight December 25th, 2016:…
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! Stuck. Yuck. Oh well it is good practice for maintenance one day. My body does not like ONEderland. This happened 20 years ago too. Got here, couldn't go lower, stayed at 202-205 for 13 years before I gained again to the point of needing to make a life change again. Not quitting, but I can't lie. I…
  • @SamanthaLouiseMence - Prayers for you friend.
  • Happy Sunday, everyone! I missed checking in last Sunday as we went camping. Spring isn't quite here yet in North Georgia, but it is in South Georgia so we went there for a long weekend. Things are moving ever so slowly, but I am hanging in there. No loss to report, but no gain either. Body shape keeps changing so that is…
  • @tramaine_21 Seriously! The number on the scale matters. Try as we might to be OK without the positive reinforcement of a lower number as a reward for the effort, it is downright maddening when the numbers don't cooperate. I am up the last few days for no particular reason. I am old so no more TOM for me, but yeah I…
  • Happy Monday, everyone! I forgot to check in yesterday! After 2 weeks of rain, we were off to the Nascar race yesterday and some sunshine. My favourite driver didn't win, but one I don't like didn't win either :) I've felt kind of stuck... mostly doing everything right but the scale just doesn't want to give me any credit…

  • Wow! That is inspiring!
  • We've got this, girlfriend! I have appreciated your support since you first reached out to me, and we will get there together! <3
  • That is what I do, been doing this challenge for 2+ years now. 😁
