    I was doing really well yesterday and then last night I caved and had half a pack of cookies so now I’m 500 calories over for yesterday😫.

    Feel so angry at myself today but also feel like I want to eat everything in the house. But I’m going to try and stay strong to hopefully undo the damage I did last night by staying under cals today and tomorrow so I at least see a loss on Tuesday. 🤞🏻

    Hope everyone’s doing okay.💛

    Stayed under my calories yesterday and it’s weigh day tomorrow. So going to try and keep as close/ under my calories for today as possible to hopefully help with the scales tomorrow.🙈

    I think that my scales are malfunctioning as every time I get on them this morning they say a different figure but I ordered a pair of Fitbit scales a few days ago so hopefully when they arrive things will go a lot smoother and will be more accurate.

    Hope everyone’s doing well today💛

    I’m really struggling today😫 just want to gorge myself on junk food and I’m not even hungry🙄. Currently 200 calories over today but determined to keep it at that and then be as good as I can be for the rest of the week.

    How’s everyone doing?💛

    @ac7ssm - great start to the year!! Amazing!

    Hey @ElizabethEmilyy0511 ... I didn't just have a bad day last week, I had a whole bad week! I kept wanting pizza, I think like you, it was about something other than hunger. But hopefully the weather will start to warm up - for me, I think it's about cold weather amongst other things. Stay strong in your resolve!

    Weekly check in. Still going strong but I did cheat an have 2 beers on Friday and 2 glasses of wine Sat. Made up for it with exercise. I think my beginning thump will end soon as my body is adjusting to the new regime. I am determined to lose 50lbs by our trip at the end of April. I know that is aggressive...

    I went for a long cold bike ride with my 10 yr old grandson today. It was lovely... and cold. Did I mention how cold it was? He doesn't care, he was just happy to get out and about. Lockdown has been hard on some of these kids who don't have anyone but their old gramma to socialize with. My daughter is keeping him in online classes because they live with us, and we would be at risk because of our age and some health conditions. I got a certification that the spouse and I am eligible for the covid vaccine and spent hours online and on the phone trying to find out where to go get one. It seems as soon as they open a place for appointments, it fills up immediately. Tomorrow my clinic starts offering appointments for people in my phase, hopefully we can get in.

    I've lost 6 lbs since I started tracking 3 weeks ago, so that is progress. I was aiming for 1 - 2 lbs per week. I upped my calories to 1300 because I was getting too hungry at night and because I'd increased my walking time as well.

    Hey,

    Yeah it’s definitely an emotional/ comfort thing for me. Food is definitely my vice. It only takes one thing to go wrong and I turn to food. Trying to stop this habit but it takes time. Thank you! You too! ☺️

    I have a problem with never feeling full. It just does not exist for me. I have to figure out how to stop late night eating too. I don’t sleep well and get up and always feel that I need to eat something. Usually sweet. I need to figure out how to stop! Sometimes I don’t even remember.

    Night time is when I’m at my worst too. I literally just want to sit and eat crisps, chocolate and sweets. I let myself have one to get over the craving and before I know it I’m over my calories so been really working on that this week.

    Well, I prayed that God would sew my mouth shut so I wouldn't eat the wrong stuff.
    Wednesday I ended up in oral surgery, walking out with 10 stiches in my mouth.
    Now I'm on baby food and sugar free jello till further notice.

    NOTE TO SELF:
    Be careful what you pray for,
    or be more specific.

    I want to say welcome to everyone who joined this past week. This is awesome !!!
    ac7ssm - bless your precious heart, my husband was in the 350 bracket and he was able to loose 170pds.
    I can very easily see you doing the same.

    who would have thought you can gain weight on diet jello, pudding and baby food.
    I walk a mile to two miles a day. Does anyone have any advise for me ? I've had oral surgery and a mouth full of stitches to eating is limited.
