    I started my fitness/fat loss journey a little over a week ago. I have been a yo-yo dieter my entire adult life (since I was 17). I am convinced that things will be different this time around. I have an online fitness coach and have been using MFP to track my calories/macros religiously. I binged twice but learned from it. I upped my good fats/protein and calories by 500 (I was radically undereating). I am really excited about the upcoming journey. Every day I feel happy and positive: no "Oh no, I have to go on a diet" thing
    or "I'm a flabby slob, why am I so ugly". I wish everybody the best regarding their own personal goals.

    Thanks for the Easter greeting! Anyone having ham today, lol.

    Happy Easter, Missy and all.

    It’s been a gorgeous weekend and I’ve been out a lot, with the dogs and/or my sons. All the activity is exhausting, haha, so worth it. I’m reading a lot too and enjoying Spring Break.

    I’m down another lb—6 in 2 mo. Slow but it’s encouraging.

    I called Friday to get a referral for double knee replacement, so that may be in the not too distant future. Ugh.

    Hope you are all doing well. TTFN.
    Maureen.

    Good evening,

    The church I attend has a sunrise service for Easter, so it has been a long day.

    Between early and regular service I walked the parking lot - dull but got decent steps.

    Back to work. I find I like to hide if I have a day off or long weekend.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    I didn't usually use the community section but this go around I decided to. As soon as I clicked into the different groups, I saw this one and laughed out loud. Because it is me. I can't tell you how many times I've deleted and come back. But let's hope this is the last one! Feel free to add me

    Have a great day everyone 🌼

    Hi all. I’m back from a lovely visit with my daughter and her son and boyfriend. That baby is too precious for words.

    Back to the grind tomorrow. I’m begging to wonder how I can do this for another 5 years.

    Good evening,

    I am sorry it has been a week. Week itself has been so disconnected. Work is just stupid.

    I got my hairdresser to offer free haircuts for people at my church over 70 men/women so her sisters can get practice on non Korean hair. People leave their hair when $$ is tight.

    Soccer soccer and more soccer, eye candy for me and that is always a good thing.

    Lana enjoy your adventure somehow we get more steps in. No guilt.

    Boss has bangs now so the "bang war" is on!!

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    "Work is stupid." Sara, I know the feeling. I'm so tired today--I think it's allergies and I need a higher dose of my medication, plus I've been completely forgetting Fluonase. My brain is having trouble keeping up with my mouth at school. Can't think of what I'm trying to say.

    Beautiful here, though, and nice to see the kids.

    Mostly, I think I just hate waking to an alarm.

    how is everyone? Lana, where are you traveling?

    Happy Eclipse Monday!

    I couldn’t get pictures of eclipse but did see it! Was cool to see even though I wasn’t in an area for 100% totality. It go hazy though. Maybe next one I will conveniently plan a trip for the next one.

    Hi, all. Welcome @Chloe2181

    Missy, nice pic.

    I stayed home from work today. Drove straight to clinic after work yesterday, I felt so poorly. Provider did a breathing tx that helped a lot and loaded me up on allergy stuff/rx. Inhaler, a 2nd allergy pill to take with the one I already take, and fluonase. I woke up feeling so tired and ill, and knew I needed a day of rest. So hard for me to do. But I’ve napped off and on and still don’t feel energetic, but at least not as awful as before. Lost my sense of taste and smell, but no Covid (I’ve always lost smell/taste with colds, and I did test for Covid).

    Anyway, I’m hoping to feel well enough to work tomorrow. Sitting around doesn’t suit me — makes me feel sore and apathetic, even if I need it. Can’t wait to have some energy. I’ve been dragging for a few weeks now.

    I hope everyone else is feeling great and ki look forward to joining you.
