    7/4/2018 180 lb I have not been drinking water. I have been eating a lot of salt. I have been having issues and going to PT for lower back and hip pain. Not excuses, but this is what I think happened with this weight gain.

    11/12/18 183.6
    11/17/18 186 lbs Took this weight on Saturday for some reason and was totally flabbergasted! Highest weight of my lifetime! Really need to pay attention to nibbles and water intake
    11/19/18 182.6 MUCH BETTER. Been paying attention to water intake (8 oz blue cup by sink). Mindful choices. Following Beck's Diet Solution closely.
    12/3/18 183.8 lbs
    12/10/18: 182.2 lbs

    Ooh, tenacity! I like it! Have you looked up your word in the dictionary?
    "persistent in maintaining, adhering to, or seeking something valued or desired...showing power to resist or endure..." are you getting stronger and more tenacious just reading this???

    You are persistent, able to resist, and determined! The new Tracy of 2019!

    Every year from Halloween until New Years I seem to gain weight. It is a combination of seasonal depression/ missing loved ones (having lost 4 of my siblings who I was very close to), and just missing the big family get togethers. Upset with myself, but I feel uncontrollable in this ... this is one of my main goals to learn this new year.

    Year 2019

    January 1, 2019: 206

    Non-scale related goals for 2019:
    1. learn how to stop/control binge eating
    2. learn how to manage stress/emotional eating
    3. keep up a gratitude journal everyday
    4. consistently learn and be better at planning meals for the week .... make this a regular thing to do
    5. consistently continue with exercising 5x a week. Be more confident in how I look.
    6. make drinking water a daily habit ... something I have to work at.
    7. Reach my goal weight .... then learn how to maintain it!! -- DO not gain weight at the end of the year!, Food is not to be used as a comfort.

    Scale-related goals for 2019:
    Feb: 200
    March: 195
    April: 190 -- 1st Mini Goal in time for our 43rd wedding anniversary!!
    May: 185
    June: 180 -- 2nd mini goal
    July: 175-- 4th of July party at our sons
    August: 170 -- GOAL REACHED!!!!
    Sept and beyond --- Maintain, and if possible goal weight of 165 (which may not be doable, this was what I weighted in high school! But ... wouldn't it be nice!!

    @PackerFanInGB - I am a night owl by nature and have a really hard time making myself go to bed on time to be able to get up in the morning when I need to. About 3 years ago I started going to bed half an hour earlier each night until nights that I have to be getting up I am in bed by 10. I still read for a few minutes in bed. I also moved my alarm clock across the room. It forced me to get up. I very rarely now ever hit a snooze button. I don’t even have an alarm clock in the room. I only use my cell if Rodger isn’t going to be home to wake me. I can’t smack him and make him come back so it helps too!

    What a great thread! I am hoping this helps keep me accountable.

    Motivational quote for today
    Small Changes Can Make a BIG Difference!

    Welcome!!! And yes, getting on here definitely makes us accountable! Having to report to someone makes me stop and think twice ... especially if I am honest on here :D But the nice thing is that if anyone has a bad day ... there is always someone to boost us up!

    2019 Word for the Year: Tenacity

    Look at all those smiley faces :) Great job!!! This is going to be our year!!!And for the snooze .... remember... you body has been through a lot lately! Maybe you really need the rest much more than you realize! Going for a walk in the evening is just as good as in the morning ... and you can still get in those few extra minutes of sleep! But ... you not suppose to oversleep and feel rushed LOL :D I do that many times when I try and set the alarm much earlier ... it took me a good month to start waking up before my alarm would go off. But if we are going to travel or anything like that, and have to set the alarm too much before our regular time ... I lay awake all nite long, worrying that I will oversleep!!

    But ... be kind to yourself. You are doing great!

    My weekly weigh in. It is an average over the last 7 days and this week is not pretty! I am up 1.7 pounds over the week, I seemed to do worse after Christmas Day with all of the junk left in the house. Hopefully it starts going down again soon. I did do a Leslie Sansone walk tonight for 3 miles, my first since October 30. I need to get back at this seriously now that I have time. Mother of the Bride dress shopping is in about 6 weeks, and in 12 weeks we are having family pictures taken. I want to lose again before both of these occur.

    So here is the ugly for this weeks weigh-in, all the negatives are actually a gain due to the way I have the excel sheet set up.
