    I was extremely frustrated and irritated and thought I'll go sit at home, drink a beer and have some chips... But I didn't!! I normally would have not even recognized the signs of emotional eating before

    Today, after 3 weeks of being pretty good I went to a zumba class all on my own and loved it! I then got home and weighed myself for the first time in 3 weeks and I had lost 8 lbs! I am so pleased, just have to keep going that's the only problem!!

    Today I pre-logged the ice cream cake and snack I know I will be having at my daughter's birthday party so I can arrange my day around it rather than giving up because there's a party.

    I know it seems stupid but it's a big step. Usually I'd just not bother logging in that situation.

    This is anything but stupid ... it's brilliant! Hope you enjoyed the party and goodies :smile:

    Today, I thought about a friend on here, running outside in the Chicago weather. That inspired me to catch the city bus in the cold (not near as cold as up north) and go to the gym and workout.

    I wanted to cook up an apple cinnamon pancake for dinner... I had a whole wheat turkey burger and a banana instead...

    I went out for breakfast in the blizzard so I wouldn't get cabin fever and munch all day.

    I got a flat tire! I had to take my car in for 2 tires and an alignment. I found the closest shop to the gym and went for a workout while waiting. Much more fun than sitting there for 2 hrs!

    Great job! I had no motivation to work out today. I didnt get much sleep, was really tired but i put on my swimsuit and did a water workout! Yay! Also, i made a goal for myself to exercise at least 30 minutes for 5 days and i did it! Another major step for me is cutting out soda....not completely, i still have a cup but thats saying alot bc i used to drink it all day like water.

    Congrats @Lallen377 and @Jdavis3111 !

    Today was my day off. I finished my first full T25 workout and DIDN'T binge despite being inside with nothing to do all day.

    I'm bulking/gaining weight (after losing 30+ pounds). It is very difficult for me to see the fat gains, especially during my time of month when I'm bloated and holding even more water weight. This month I did NOT FREAK OUT like I have been. I kept it together. I wore beautiful sweaters and leggings, remained calm, and enjoyed my extra calories in the gym. I'm just kind of down at the moment but wanted to post this because I'm really proud of myself for not giving up and not going crazy this month.

    Today I turned down a vanilla shake from in-n-out burger.. it was hard, I love shakes, but i didnt want the sugar. Did you know that a regular size shake is almost 600 calories. that is 200 calories more then the burger itself.

    All of these posts are awesome! Way to go everyone. Today, I convinced my mom to join me in the gym. Its been a really long time since she's stepped foot in there. I was so proud to be leading by example and happy to help support her achievements
