@its_cleo It's progress, not perfection, remember that. Sorry it's been a struggle though. I love to meditate. It is hard but a meditation teacher once told me the goal is not to not have thoughts (I forget what she said, it was something about picturing meditating like swimming underwater in the ocean and you occasionally come up for air---those are your thoughts). Thank you for thinking of me. Week hasn't been too bad.
@TeresaW1020 I usually track my water on the FitBit app. I've tried water apps in the past but have ignored them lol. I just got new glasses (I'm waiting to get the lenses put in them) and I, too, have expensive taste, unfortunately lol. The ones I picked are really cool: they are handpainted in Israel. I had them paint on the inside of arm: READ MORE BOOKS. I will attach a picture of them. But you know what I figure? You wear them every day for a couple of years, they express your personality, why not spend a little bit of money on a good pair? Girl, you've never had a S'more? You are in for a treat! Sometimes we put a peanut butter cup in it instead of a piece of chocolate! Enjoy!
@fancyladyJeri Great step count!
@theslightedgeforever Yes, I usually make myself drink a 26 oz bottle of water on the way to work and one on the way home and then I drink some at work. I'm at least guaranteed to get that much in! I'm sorry you didn't get a sticker today, but it sounds like you made a good effort. When is your birthday?
Hello all. Doing okay over here, two days eating homecooked food so that is good. I'm looking forward to the weekend. Here are my glasses that I got:

I haven't seen the movie or read the book!!! I can't believe it. As much as I love old movies and Hollywood glamour, I haven't. I can't fathom that I haven't watched it. Maybe I need to go lol.

@theslightedgeforever, Happy Birthday to you!!! Yes, I opened the journal and at least read all the days I've missed. And even if I didn’t fill out all the questions and reflections it really is very good at getting me to think. I really liked Day 36 when it tells me to slow down when I’m eating. I’ve been trying too but I think today I will set a timer for 20 minutes and see if I can do it. That will help me to savor my food, which is what day 37 tells me to do. Nice dovetail the journal does there. 😉 I love the idea of making my own mini toasted marshmallows!!
@trooworld, LOVE your new glasses!! So much fun! You are right that it’s something we wear every day and I don’t plan to cheap out on them. I also need to change the lenses in my sunglasses but I love those frames so at least that might save me some money.
@gemworlf, glad to hear that Bronco is getting used to his cast. Husky’s are such cool dogs. Is he very vocal? I get such a kick out of watching videos of huskies talking back to their owners.
@its_cleo, it can be stressful to realize how much our weight can fluctuate. I weigh every day, and both track it on my Happy Scale app and write it down on a spreadsheet that I keep on my fridge. My husband is my accountability partner and he has a hard time understanding how my weight can jump around over several tenths during the week. But you are right to think of the overall net loss. I only really count what I do on Tuesdays because that is my official weigh in day. The rest of the days are just knowledge.
@cbabie. Sorry that you are having family drama. It can get so complicated can’t it? That is cool that your DGS will be your friend on here. Be good to yourself.
So, it's day 39 for me on my 100-day challenge and as of this morning, I'm down 1.5 for the last 9 days. Woot!! If I'm really careful today I might even see a little more for tomorrows day 40. I really think the no eating after dinner and watching my sodium is working! I just keep thinking that it's almost spring and I will be going to buy new clothes. Then in May, I'm going to see my family in Florida who haven't seen me in a year and I want them to be surprised. So, I gotta buckle down and make it happen!!
Y'all I am so excited for February 28th. My birthday is March 2nd and my hubby is taking me to see Gone With The Wind at the theater. I've never seen it on the big screen and believe it or not my husband has never seen the movie! Boggles my mind! They are releasing it around the country for two days for its 80th anniversary. Here is the link if you want to read about it and get your tickets. Who loves the movie as much as I do?
