    @tinkerbellang83 I love that you include a gratitude journal in your goals! And sleep and meditation, too.

    My goals have been very narrowly focused on calorie deficits and weight loss, but I’ve been struggling with stress and some bigger life issues. I think adding a gratitude journal and yoga/meditation would help me find a better balance. Thanks! If one of your goals today is to help a new friend, give yourself a smilie face. :)

    I used to have only weight loss goals but quickly realised that the scale doesn't always reflect adherence to my plan and that doesn't mean I am doing anything wrong, it's just masked by fluctuations in the short term, so I now focus more on the stuff that helps me keep to the calorie deficit.

    Stress and poor sleep are two of my biggest triggers for binge-eating so it makes sense for me to prioritise them in my goals.

    The gratitude diary helps to ground me a bit when I have had a bad day as I have to go out of my way to think what has been at least one positive thing that has happened or that I am thankful for.

    I use the calm app for meditation and it has several categories for Guided Meditation, including Sleep, Anxiety and Emotions, so some of the suggestions in it have been very helpful in dealing with stress without reaching for the fridge.

    Today's goal was just to stick with the program. And I did it. Had 150 calories left over. I'll bank those for later...or not. Great feeling to get over the despondency of not seeing the scales move but keeping on logging and moving. Walked 5.2km. In the rain too so I reckon I get bonus points for that😝

    For the week:

    1) Heal and be happy
    2) Determine if I am ready to transition back to losing until I am cleared for exercise so 4 or 5 deficit days this week.
    3) 9k+ steps on any day I feel up to it.
    4) Try to limit to 12k steps on days I feel too good. I start treatment on my knee in 2 weeks so another lesson in patience I suppose.
    5) Hope that not one more thing adds to my required patience because it might send me over the edge.

    Not a great day yesterday, but not terrible.

    Steps were lower than planned, I got my flu jab yesterday and felt a bit woozy in the afternoon so accepted a lift home from work.

    I did use my phone briefly, after a daft conversation with my boyfriend I used it to show him The Pink Panther show, I don't think it particularly made much difference to my evening as it wasn't a stress inducing experience and I slept quite well.

    Work was extremely busy this week so worked through my lunch break yesterday to ensure I am out of here on time on Friday for my Bank Holiday travel plans.

    I'm with you on the patience, @conniewilkins56

    haven't had any downward movement on the scale in a week and a half, which I keep reminding myself isn't all that long, but man... it tests my patience for sure.

    other goals for the day: skip the alcohol (lots of social gatherings this weekend, need to reset), do some work-week planning so I can get ahead on grading this week, 10k steps (40% there!), under 1700 calls would be great too.

    managed to hit all these goals, yay! the scale is still refusing to budge, but I'm feeling pretty great so I'm going to focus on that.

    Short on steps the last 2 days as had car from work, averaging 7175 per day so far.
    Sleeping well, spent last night sorting out my meal planner, positivity board, goal and did some meditation before bed.

    Protein a little low this week so far, just ordered some more protein bars for my morning snacks instead of the fruit bars I've been eating the last week which should help bring me back up a bit.

    To stop overeating. Have really had an issue with this over the past couple of weeks.
