Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Weekly Weigh-In: The Push To Onderland!

I'm down 1.2 lbs. this week, putting my total weight loss at 122.1 lbs. I'm so close to finally reaching Onderland (weighing under 200 lbs.). I'm pulling out all the stops to get their in November.

I’m down 1.2 lbs. this week, putting my total weight loss at 122.1 lbs. I’m so close to finally reaching Onderland (weighing under 200 lbs.). I’m pulling out all the stops to get their in November.

As of Saturday, I’m down 1.2 lbs. Another 3+ lbs. and I’ll finally reach that magical place called Onderland…something I haven’t seen in more than 25 years.

I’ve been within 10 pounds over the last 4 months. Slowly I’ve come within 2 pounds, only to start gaining weight. Ugh! It’s so frustrating. But I have some tricks up my sleeve to get me over this huge hurdle. Well, not really tricks. More like getting back to my good habits.

Dot’s Tricks Good Habits To Finally Reach Onderland

  1. Daily Carb Range of 17g-20g – that means a new menu for the week. I’ll have that posted by tomorrow.
  2. No wine! – The nectar of the gods has crept back into my diet. So no wine until Thanksgiving!
  3. More exercise – My knee is on the mend so I’m increasing my walks from 3 to 5 days a week.
  4. Getting 8 My Hours Each Night – As soon as my insomnia flares up, I’m gaining weight. This week I’m on guard to avoid caffeine after 2:00 p.m. and sticking to my 11:00 p.m. bedtime.
  5. High Quality H2O…Lots Of It – I consistently lose weight when I drink my 100 ounces a day. ‘Nuff said.
  6. Tracking Everything I Eat – Like my water intake, when I track I lose weight. Funny how that works. Sigh…I need to track every meal, everyday.

I’m not expecting to weigh less than 200 lbs. by my next weigh-in, but definitely before Thanksgiving. Then my next challenge is to stay in Onderland during the holidays.

    Awesome, Dot! You go girl.

  4. I know you will reach your goal. I have been reading your blog and am inspired and encouraged by it. I, too, am close to that magic land. I am posting this list on my refrigerator, on my bathroom mirror and on my computer as a more inspiration.

  5. What is your TDEE and how many calories per day are you under it?

  6. I think you can hit your goal before Thanksgiving .
