@jmacaroni~ So sorry to hear about your ill kiddos and so happy that you have @RTM to come to get yourself picked back up and dusted off to keep on this healthy, weightloss journey. Yes, today is a new day. How did Wednesday go for you?@Pearl4686~ I understand about how your hubby feels about size- my hubby & I don’t judge or look at each other in that way. But I do look at him for his health, more than his being overweight. I find that at my size it’s hard for me to do certain things. As I lose weight, I can do more. I will say that there are more fun clothes to wear as a thinner person, the styles look better. I know you’re not one who journals, but maybe you can use this thread to do more writing about those NSVs. Every week find one new something to focus on that you can do (or can’t and want to change it) and write about it. !!???! This may help you focus more on health, feeling good, energy, stamina, etc. I was surprised myself yesterday by walking to/fro my mom’s before work; that after not walking for several days and barely exercising that it didn't’ hurt, I wasn’t out of breath, and I wasn’t slow. Yeah!!!! And when you start receiving more compliments, respond with …”Thank you, I feel so energetic.” Take your response and focus off appearance and put it to the internal healthy side of you. You got this!!
THIS. THIS IS why I love our team name… RunTrackMinds. It truly is all the elements of what it is going to take to lose and keep the weight off.@jwall309~ Your last Tuesday at your job. Wooohoooo! I know how determined you are. You WILL get in two great days, then be mindful over the weekend. You go this!@ajaia2001~ Oh my goodness!! Two-fers on two days. Wowsers! Remind me how many lbs until you reach your goal weight? Do you take measurements to see inches lost? - BTW… we’re buddies. If another wants a buddy I’ll step down, but can’t deny you of having a buddy.
You did it!! Wooooohoooo! 2 classes of exercise. Wonderful. I bet you slept great!!@DDay2020~ Nice week of doing what it takes to lose it. And GREAT loss!! Wooohoooooo!!! I’m so excited for you!! You are making me more excited about my journey and to get back on track! Thanks for sharing!! What a Wednesday! Yeah!! You’re doing great.@Leebett~ You are definitely not alone. We are all on this journey together… a team. A great team!! Yes, reading and writing about it help so much. I think it mostly makes us be honest with ourselves about what it going on and that we can do it and that doing the right things makes a difference and the weight will come off! Keep doing it!@Perla4686 ~ Yeah for tracking! Yep being brutally honest (me too!) Good for you for planning pizza. When you have that as a meal, do you balance it out with anything? I like to have a salad (veggies) and add low-fat cottage (protein) as my dressing. Plus it helps fill me up. Yes, always... More water, more exercise. But… sometimes, focusing on what you ARE DOING and doing right is the main goal. Then you will get back on track fully, and add the others, too. That’s where I am totally at in my process. Baby steps again. Ugh. Hate it, but I need to remind myself to do it to be successful.@jovsfood~ Goodness. I hope you’re feeling better. You had a good Wednesday…. Yeah, you! Tracking, under, Pilates, and being positive. Wow, Wednesday. Love it! @DogMom919~ Wonderful Wednesday! Good job on those healthier habits of water and logging every bite.@jupdyke~ Wooohooooo Wednesday for you and a smooth first day back. @bootssowhite~ Cait! I hope you get some good zzzzz’z. Good job on tracking!!@skullsandskeletons~ Good Wednesday!! And getting in 4 cups of water.@angiesjourney ~ Woooohoooo Wednesday. Good for you. @midsummer174627~ Good job today!! Wonderful … doing your body good to lift weights. That for sure will help you towards your goal of looking professional in your work clothes. Measuring is a pain, but worth every ounce (hahaha.) to get to the goal. Good NSV!! Good job on planning ahead. I understand about saying NO. I try not to in that I DO plan a few things to make it more fun. I’ve also learned that snacking can be healthy, too. One of my favorites, especially this time of year was chips and dip. Well, I don’t completely deny myself of chips. BUT... I do get most of the same flavors when I do my healthier version. I now eat on a regular basis, cucumbers with my dip. And that dip is healthy. It’s black beans and salsa or salsa and cottage cheese or all three together. So there are ways to accomplish both. It takes a little bit of experiment time, but you will find the right “tricks” to treat yourself. OR.. instead of food… what about buying a small new hand lotion scent or a scented lip gloss or something aromatic that you can use more than once. !? Instead of trying to please the tastebuds, please your other senses. Good luck with the work meals and the party on Saturday, let us know your strategies and how they worked. You can do it!!

Week 1, Thursday weigh in
Hope to catch up and intro in a few. It’s been another eventful week, and not the happy weekend trip with the kids variety, so I have only weighed in. Another horrible car accident for a family member, so I have been busy with helping her through a hospital stay and upcoming surgery.
