    Sunny Calif was actually sunny yesterday, with temps almost 70 70degrees. Delightful after days of cold and grey in Indiana. Totally fell off the wagon on the travel day out here... long day, poor planning in terms of managing my eating schedule. But, back on plan yesterday. Way too sedentary, but my body is getting a much-needed break

    A MFP blog to read and ponder as we close out February and get ready for March ... Things to ADD to your life to lose weight. It's not ALLL about food restrictions .... it's about discovering what "a sustainable lifestyle" looks like in YOUR world.

    Thank you so much, I need to read these words.
    I have been on and off MFP for many years. I wish I could blame it on the TOM but I'm pass that phase of life. I believe one of my problems is that I might not be eating enough. I should say I know I'm not eating enough.

    It's just so hard. But I will Keep On Keeping On.
    Thanks Again

    Do you have a weight-trending app? It might help keep numbers on the scale in a wider perspective - I have heard of Happy Scale for apple or Libra for Android.

    Does anyone else use either of these?

    Step Records (need to be in by ASAP today so that I can list them before they become "void for this week's standings" )

    @evangsimmons170 missing Mon18 through Sat 23 complete
    @Leni1us missing Thurs 21 through Sat 23 complete with help from reflectionofme (if Leni1us posts her own numbers, they will be entered)
    @jugar missing Thurs 21 (I got 2 since you pulled out ... )
    @mari_moulin missing only Sat 23
    @sue_01 01 missing Fri 22 and Sat 23 (reflectionofme sub for Monday - is sue_01 posts her own numbers, they will be entered)
    @Astrue missing only Sat 23
    @mickie48 missing Fri 22 and Sat 23
    @willrunformartinis missing Fri 22 and Sat 23
    @Kittu125 missing only Sat 23
    ===============
    Summary:
    • If your name has a strikethrough, I have ALL your numbers
    • If your name is in bold / italics, I am missing one or two end-of-week numbers. Even if they get covered off for this week - let me know them and I will enter your official numbers for the "whole of month" record.
    • @Leni1us, I used @reflectionofme's numbers to cover your gaps, but if you post your own numbers, I will swap them in.

    Thank you, @reflectionofme for helping cover four of our gaps.

    I can only use one person's replacement numbers on one day's gap ... so if there are three people who track their steps and are not part of the Starting Lineup .....
    For maximum possible placement in the Team vs Team rankings, I need:
    Friday: name - steps
    Saturday: name1 - steps
    Saturday: name2 - steps
    Saturday: name3 - steps

    ... we made the podium for the first time last week ..... can we do it again?

    I am sooooo sorry. I've spent the last several evenings at the hospital with a close friend of mine. She went in last Thursday afternoon. I totally forgot about logging my steps. My Fitbit logs everyday for me so I listed my missing days below. I hope I'm not too late. If you need to replace me cuz I screwed it up for the group, I'd totally understand. I'm back so I'll be posting daily. Again, I'm sorry for being MIA.

    2/21 - 13,128
    2/22 - 11,749
    2/23 - 10,222
    2/24 - 12,866
    2/25 - 14,444 (Circuit training class)

    Not to worry!!! Life Happens ... and supporting your close friend in hospital is more important in the grand scheme of things than filling in boxes on a step-count spreadsheet.

    I will swap in your own numbers tonight for the final end-of-month count.

    I hear you!! The chocolate mint ones are even "better / worse!" than the regular ones, in my opinion .... they will be showing up in my neighbourhood any day now .....

    Take time over this final week to look at what your monthly goals were, what helped and hindered, and consider what you will keep doing / tweak in the next month.

    What does "sustainable lifestyle choice" mean to you? That's the key .... what can you see yourself keeping on doing for most of a lifetime, not JUST till you "hit goal"?

    We are in opposite weather universes but having the same struggled! It's -30 here in spite of the bright sun doing its level best to warm things up. I am about to have my first exercise session in many days. I will certainly need to get back on the weight loss part of the team in March!

    WTG on team standings everyone.

    Feb was my first month in maintenance. I have been mixed feelings re how I did. I have stayed within calorie limits all but 2 days. Exercise is always the least of my problems. What I am not quite happy with is that I tend to go under calories in fear of starting to gain back. I need to continue to work on finding my new normal so I can trust the process as I did in the active weight loss phase.

    I will plan in March to add a bit more to lunch and dinner instead of "saving" so many "in case". I may also play with add ingredients back in some foods that I have avoided, for the most part.

    In many ways I am finding maintenance a bit more challenging than active weight loss. So, I am not leaving MFP soon!
