@gemwolf110 You sound very motivated to me to do all that different exercise. I'm assuming then you must mean the eating part. In my first 100 day book it said Motivation is a choice. Write down all the things that got you motivated in the past. Or kept you motivated. I had a really hard time during the month of March and April. I need to figure out that one for myself. I do have my list I kept at that time. Things that were working for me. So I'm going to go back to that and try each one.
@Teresaw1020 Was the VBS a full week? That seems to have went fast. I guess not for you. lol Good for you for doing so much better on your food. Progress is all we can ask for and not perfection. That's a cute corndog song but not the one I sing.
@trooworld How is your foot after all that walking? Imagine the walking is bringing that 57 down each time you walk. I have no idea my metabolic age. I'm sure it's way higher than 55.
@its_cleo Scary about that lady's phone. True he could have had a weapon. We all have to be very aware of our surroundings. Although I'm the paranoid one in the family. Well since you've had the comfort food fix, time to get back into the healthy eating. Great for going to the Indian restaurant and eating within your calories.
@crazyteacher101 Welcome to the group! I recently got back from vacation and regained most of the weight I had lost during the first 3 months of 2019. So frustrating! All I can say is at least I didn't gain it all back plus more. There's always perspective. Sorry about your cat. I lost my 15 year old cat in 2014. My mother the year before. Then my dad in 2017. Now the only thing I want to lose is my fat. Let us know how we can support you.
This has taken me forever. I keep getting distracted. Still no big stickers yet, but I'm getting closer.

Hi, I'm coming back to MFP after a long stint with WW and trying to find a place to fit in here. I lost 85 lbs on WW but have gained some back and am trying to get started again. I count WW points but am no longer a member and have just started tracking calories on here again. In the note section, I add up my WW points so am trying to stay within that, but I have to guesstimate on a lot of things. I hope you are all doing well.

@RetiredAndLovingIt Hi! I got the RENPHO Bluetooth Body Fat Scale Smart BMI Scale (Model CS20M). I love it so far! Here's a link to it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N1UX8RW/ I hope you mean you won't be on here much while you are traveling...I hope once you get home, you will be back on!!! We will miss you while you are traveling!
@gemwofl10 Paddle boarding sounds fun.
@TeresaW1020 Yes, that almond flour price is no joke!!! But it's worth it, I think. Thank you, I am glad I did yoga instead of ate! Wow, over 1,000 pictures, you must have been running around like a mad woman! I think you did great with the food considering what you could have done! WTG!
Hello all. I've got a busy day ahead of me: gotta take the dog to the vet, then grocery shopping, then we are going to the county fair, then a walk with my friend, then making dinner. I hope my foot holds out with all the walking I'm going to do.

@gemwolf110, good to see you!! You might be lacking motivation but at least you are keeping active! I don’t buy into the concept of motivation because it comes and goes and isn’t sustainable. You need a commitment to your plan and only you can decide what that looks like. Are you being too hard on yourself considering that you have a lot going on right now? Or do you need to focus a little more and say no to yourself more often than you say yes? I have confidence that you will get back on track.
@trooworld, my scale told me that I’m 57 years old too and I’m only 53!! Let’s get those numbers down!! Hubby bought me some almond flour yesterday and freaked over the price. I told him that is just the beginning of the new list of foods I will be buying. The deeper I go into this lifestyle the more healthy I want my ingredients to be. Good for you for turning to relaxation instead of food when you had a stressful day. Progress for sure!!
@its_cleo, glad you enjoyed the play! Great job on your eating choices too. It can be so hard to stay on plan when we are eating out but it has to be managed so we can have fun with our friends and family and not be bogged down with guilt over our choices. Although, I’m a big proponent of the “planned indulgence” every now and then. 😉
@TrishasTime, our church is blessed to have a real artist and our pastor is a builder in his day job so it makes doing stuff much easier.
@theslightedgeforever, OK!! I went to YouTube and looked up the Corndog song. Wow!! First of all, there are more than just one song!! But this one really has their lyrics down pat…
All I can say is thank God VBS is over!! It was an amazing five days and the 50 kids we had all had a wonderful time and most importantly learned about how much God loves them and how good He is! But, I'm tired! I must have taken over 1000 pictures! I'm still sorting through them all so I can post them on our church FB page. Thursday evening I was in charge of the final Family Night, which was a carnival with a bounce house, games, pizza, sno-cone, popcorn, and other assorted candy and fun. I was there for over four hours setting up, taking pictures, and then tearing it down. My poor feet literally were on their last steps when I finally got into my car to go home. I did end up eating the top of a sausage pizza and about 1/2 the crust and two small chocolate chip cookies. Not proud of it but also not very upset because considering all the junk that I was surrounded by for five days that was all I gave in to. The two years before that I ate all the things and ended up with huge gains and tons of guilt. Not this year!!

Newly off of WW and would like some active friends on MFP. I have four kids and work full time - so life is always a bit chaotic! Please add me.

@its_cleo well, enjoy the holiday!
@gemwolf110 from your pictures, it seems that you have always been an active person, is that correct? The vet: Louie has diabetes! He now gets insulin shots twice daily. So far, we are able to trick him into giving them to him. So far...
@theslightedgeforever well, we had a bag of frozen chicken fajitas in the freezer I don't know why we didn't think of those. I think because we don't usually have something like that in the freezer? lol Congrats on the big sticker woot woot!!! You are off to a great re-start.
Hello gals. It was hot here yesterday so I didn't get my meal prepping done, I had no energy. I'm going to pay for it this week. Luckily, it's a short week. I really only need meals for Mon, Tues: I can handle Weds night when I get off work since I don't work the next day, I can have coffee and stay up. Tonight's meal will be pretty easy as it is an instant pot meal. Hopefully, I can get my hubby to cook tomorrow night.
