    Okay so yesterday was a bust. I logged in the morning but was wiped out in the afternoon. Another audit at work so worked late then had to do a bunch of running around. I have an appointment tonight after work but my plan is to go home and work out before my appointment. Hopefully I stick to the plan. Next week I am going to try to get up before work to workout. Last time I did it I was in my 30's we will see if I can still do it in my 40's. Nothing good on TV right now anyway so here is hoping.
    Hope everyone is doing okay.

    Hello

    I'd like to join if still possible.

    I've just left the 300 lbs world and can't wait to get to 'one derland'.

    I'm 36, first time mum to my 4 month old boy. I have a couple of chronic health issues that make exercise difficult and restrict my mobility and all this extra weight is a further burden.

    I developed an eating disorder in my late 20s and it took me years to get some kind of control over it.

    I was overweight before my pregnancy, but then I had such a difficult pregnancy, I pretty much didn't move for 9 months and lived off bread and potatoes as everything else, even the smell, made me sick.

    I've been here for just over 4 weeks and am 16 lbs down.

    I have a big family reunion abroad in January (covid allowing of course) and I'd love to feel confident and look good. At least to be my pre pregnancy weight.

    My diary is open and I'm happy to share and support.

    Oh and I'm in London, UK

    I also have mobility issues (arthritis in my feet and ankles) and did most of my first near-50 pound loss entirely with diet. It's really amazing how reinforcing it is just to hurt that little bit less when you do have to stand and move, and then it gets better and better. At about 45 pounds down I suddenly found I had a ton of energy every day to Do Stuff, and even though I'm still hauling 80-100 pounds extra, it's SO much easier now. This way you'll have all that energy once that little boy of yours gets mobile, and you'll need it! (I had two, who are now grown up.)

    He is my motivation! I want to join in his adventures and run around and play.

    Can't wait to start feeling better!

    Another wonderful day. How is everyone doing today?
    I had not worked out for a few days - the change in weather is draining me. I also forgot to take my vitamin D for about a week and I am feeling that too. I don't have to take it as much in the summer but as the days get shorter and there is less sun I have to start taking it again.
    I worked out again yesterday and I always feel better after working out. It is funny how we struggle to get there even knowing we will feel better after. :/

    We cut our camping trip short while family is sick. We all got tested awaiting results. Son is negative but 2-6 days wait for the rest.

    I'm now officially at the weight I moved here at. 20 more pounds to go anything beyond is a plus.

    Well I had a bad weekend. On Friday I tweeked my knee. I had actually irritated it during a workout and just kind of brushed it off... Paid for that one. So I have not worked out since Thursday. I weighed myself Saturday and was down to 235. Then Saturday night I was bored and couldn't work out, I was feeling like crap and started eating and eating continued it into Sunday and more mindless snacking and I am now 237.
    I am hoping it is stress and will see what happens when I weigh tomorrow morning...
    But I am back at it today - still no working out - though I may try some upper body stuff today - the knee is just in a lot of pain and is distracting. But I will try at least and I will make better food choices this week.

    Hope you all had a good weekend. Remember you don't have to stay down after falling. Keep getting back up.

    I'm doing touchup painting today, which at least is standing up and doing stuff, though I'm having a slight increase in overall pain and some definite foot pain. That's related to the cold front coming through, though.

    I'm plateaued about 5 pounds from where I want to be. I know that it's mostly water and stress, but it would be a nice thing in the midst of all this to hit the "I lost 50 pounds" mark.

    Boyfriend is very needy right now and wants to have me near him for comfort, so I'm not liking to go to the gym in the morning when he might wake up and need me. I'm going to have to see what I can do to get there at some point during the day, because I need to be doing something.

    Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone is doing okay.
    I fell off the workout track but I am still doing my best to log my food and keep within my calories. Hoping to get back to my gym tomorrow morning. I will be hanging out with family this weekend. It should be fun. :)

    I am in shock for the last three days I've over ate. I've not counted so I have to really get back into it. Being sick didn't help as far as keeping on track. I always ate all my calories plus some. Last night I think I was good for calories. So off on another adventure with just myself and daughter. Going to a remote cabin no electricity or water. Spending the night then going trail horse riding for her birthday. Brought some junk stuff but will eat in moderation because I bagged it all ah ha, two thumbs up. Lots of card and board games, makeup, nail polish, and tattoo pens. Happy birthday to my almost 9 year old. Instead of smores I brought a bananna chocolate chips and marshmellows and a bottle of sprinkles for her. The cabin is sight unseen hope it's good because there is an outhouse. It is on a ranch so hope we can go feed them as I have carrots and apples. She still doesn't know it's a surprise.
