Yeah I just want to get on here really quick and telI know you that I am very tired Of being one-handed. My hand is really still swollen, feels like I got a vice grip around my wrist too many times. LOL I did not do so well I'm counting carbs yesterday, or today I need to find some different breakfast foods. It's also hard to cook. lol But I'm not going to give up trying because I saw the difference in my stomach. And how I felt so I know that's route I have to go.
I will try to get better checking and every day, Too many post to try to catch up on today

Good morning ladies!!
@crazyteacher101, welcome! Wow losing 85 lbs is awesome! And while you might have gained some back you know what to do now and getting back on track is the most important thing. Plus a good support group like this one! So, sorry for the loss of your kitty. Pets are family and you had your baby for so long. Be kind to yourself as you grieve your loss.
@theslightedgeforever, VBS was 5 days but it felt like forever! I LOVE your corndog song!! Good for you for getting back on track now that you are home. You get those big stickers, lady!!
@gemwolf110, thanks for sharing your pictures! You have made such a transformation and worked so hard to lose your weight! I love that you were always doing something active and not hiding away. I have not been so brave and I really admire you!
@cbabie, Awww your poor hand! I pray that the swelling will go down and you will start to feel better. Did your doctor say how long you have to keep the cast on?
@LULUREBEL, welcome to the group! What kind of overhauling are you looking to do now that you left WW? I’m still a WW member but I’m also overhauling the way I eat and always looking for a way to tweak my plan for better results. I agree that you need a community to help you along the way. That is why I love this little group!
@trooworld, so what plans do you have for the 4th? I bet you are a firework watching kind of girl. Am I right?
Well, I have the next three days off from work and that makes me happy! I stayed long yesterday and got everything I needed to do done and brought the rest home with me. I am in the process of getting all our people into a new database and it's taking FOREVER!!! Since VBS started my weight has been slowly creeping back up. First, it was just water weight from being on my feet so much for those 5 days but it was also that I was just eating too much. Sunday night we had a staff and deacon dinner and I gave into the desserts and had a little slice of pie and a cheesecake square. Eating that sugar immediately hit my stomach and I felt like crap! So, yesterday I fasted for 22 hours and only ate one big meal, keeping my net carbs at 23 grams. This morning my weight was back down and I'm hoping to lose a little more today for weigh in tomorrow. *fingers crossed*

@gemwolf110 I'm so sorry, that can't be easy.
@cbabie Oh your poor hand! I'm so glad you popped on here, I've missed you. I hope your hand/wrist gets better soon. re: low carb breakfasts that you don't have to cook...I bought these Jimmy Dean Delights Egg'wich breadless breakfast sandwiches (the "bread" is made out of eggs), and they are pretty decent: https://www.jimmydean.com/products/delights/eggwich I had the Bacon, Spinach, Carmelized Onion and Parmesan Eggwich. Easy to make, just microwave. Another idea is yogurt with a few lowcarb berries.
@theslightedgeforever Yes...how to train our brains...sticky notes???
Hello gals. Got home. Didn't feel like cooking. Made a good choice for once: ordered PANDA EXPRESS to be delivered: didn't get noodles or rice, got the power greens for a side but I did get orange chicken + chicken with string beans. But I'm not mad at myself, I did pretty good.
@TrishasTime where are you girl?

@trooworld I think you are right. We don't think of those things because it's not a habit. When I was at my son's house I woke up and planned out my breakfast which included eggs, sausage, and blueberries. Dh has to have some type of bread with breakfast so I went to the cupboard to get him some bread and there was a package of cinnamon raisin bagels he bought. It wasn't til lunchtime that I remembered that I didn't eat blueberries but a bagel instead. There must not have been 5-10 min between the thought of blueberries and I grabbed a bagel. I don't buy bagels for the house because I will eat all of them. So how to train our brains......
@LULUREBEL Welcome to the group. What do you find you struggle with the most right now?
@gemwolf110 Remember the whole when one door closes, another opportunity is right around the corner. Relationships are hard. Is this one worth saving? Imagine meeting someone who likes to eat clean food and is as active as you are. Just the new environment would add to your success.
@cbabie Now your left hand looks like mine. Minus that pink thing of course. How long do you have to keep it on? Is the cast too tight? Any tingling, burning, etc? You don't want blood circulation problems. Signed: Your nagging sister.
I stayed within my food boundaries; did NOT meet my water goal and used up one of my rest days for the week. Little sticker earned.

Good morning everyone
Did not have internet when I was away, but goods news - I stuck to my plan. I did not have any free scones, and I caught myself taking a bite of the last half a scone as I washed up the teas cups. I caught myself before swallowing and spat it out into the kitchen sink.
Hello to the newbie
@trooworld - Sorry about your foot, when do you get to see the podatrist? How are the injections going? I am glad you are getting deeper into your healthy food living and really, I can see how far you have come since I joined this group.
@theslightedgeforever - How are you feeling now. It is kinda hard to get back into a routine when you come back from a big trip. Have you ordered the food shopping yet? Is there anything you can do about the choking issue?
@cbabie - I hope you are resting that hand, doe sit feel tight when you are trying to do something with that hand? I hope that there is less pain now that you have a cast on.
@gemwolf110 -I look at the photos and see what a pretty lady you are! Thank you for sharing your concerns about your relationship. Know that we are here to support you. It is better to realise there is an issue now rather than wait until you are both old and then the differences really stand out. Good luck with trying to work it out or moving on
@teresaw1020 - Glad you are understanding what your body needs and does not need. Fingers crossed for weigh in.
