    Good day in total

    For Friday respect my calorie streak of six days and keep focused on breaking through a weight milestone.

    1900 calories: 1914
    Work out for 80 minutes, make the time:High point for the day. Made the time, got up at 5:00 to beat the rain. 89 minutes including a 2.72 mile walk
    Make good choices:Good day but off the rails at dinner.
    Support my bride: Easy to do
    Eat dinner at the table and Walk afterwards, both unplugged. Don’t snack on the couch:Nope, Nope and nope

    For Saturday, celebrate anniversary and keep things on track for Monday’s weigh in.

    2100 calories:
    Work out 80 minutes:
    Make good choices:
    Support my bride. Married for 28 years today. COVID has had me working from home since March. This is the longest I’ve gone without traveling. She has always supported and loved me including my weight.
    No commitment on the couch today:

    Tech issues with MFP Community today, first chance I've had to post.

    Wonderful to see even more newbies on JFT! Welcome!

    @TerriRichardson112 Love your art. I would balk at $397 too!

    @WellingTX Happy anniversary! I also have been working from home since March, but now it's three days in the office and two at home. With the current spikes of positive cases in my state and county, I may be asked to work from home full-time again. We'll see.

    2) Walked dog 3.6 mi after market :smiley: happy dog & happy me ~ didn't do long "weekend" route due to fall yard chores in afternoon
    3) Raked back yard while hubby leaf blowed front & some back / fenced back yard tea roses / emptied & stored both rain barrels / emptied another planter done for season / took down hummingbird feeder :smiley: 5/5 & tired

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    Age 63, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI
    UG maintain: 145 - 150 (need to be realistic)

    11/5/15 = 195.0 joined MFP with no real plan except It's. Not. A. Diet.
    1/10/17 = 185.5 clearly not a regular on MFP / joined JFT, best group ever! :smiley:

    06/17 = 179.5 numerous meals away from home, several occasions w/ alcohol, happy no gain
    06/24 = 178.0 fluctuated during week, but ended ok
    07/01 = 176.0 Yay!!! Achieved June goal to stay <180

    07/29 = 174.0 saw at least one daily w-i below 174
    08/05 = 174.5 dined out for Girls Day Out & ate Dad's cooking & baking
    08/12 = 173.5 scale flirted with even lower numbers on daily weigh-ins
    08/19 = 173.5 had couple of high calorie days
    08/26 = 172.0 kind of a surprise
    09/02/17 = 170.0 Woohoo! Officially overweight, not obese :smiley:

    The good: Made time to work out. Stayed on track through dinner. The bad: Didn’t walk and snacked on the couch

    For Saturday, celebrate anniversary and keep things on track for Monday’s weigh in.

    2100 calories: 4122
    Work out 80 minutes:38 minutes
    Make good choices: Through dinner, made good choices. I know the couch with TV is an issue but fell off the tracks anyway. Tough to write this out but obviously not tough enough to stop myself
    Support my bride. Married for 28 years today. COVID has had me working from home since March. This is the longest I’ve gone without traveling. She has always supported and loved me including my weight: She always supports and loves me. Overlooks the little things I do and supports me in everything I do
    No commitment on the couch today: Ugh

    [/quote]

    For Sunday, put in the extra effort to finish the week strong. With a little work I can set 2020 high points for time, miles, weights, crunches and push ups. I’m committing to make it happen.

    1900 calories. Week won’t be good due to Saturday but I can make today positive:
    Work out for 1 hour 45 minutes:
    Make good choices:
    Support my bride:
    Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards, both unplugged. DON’T EAT ON THE COUCH:

    I met my goals on Saturday and I’ve lost weight!!

    What I’ve learned since joining this group is that consistency is key. Small reasonable goals that I can actually meet.

    I’ve been surprised that even though when I complete my diary it says I will gain, Ive been losing. Tracking makes you pay attention and that helps

    Log everything
    Eat only one serving
    Exercise every of only for 10 minutes

    Everyone have a great Sunday!

      So goals for tomorrow, again, will be simple
      1. log all food :)
      2. stay within calories :)
      3. mindful eating :)
      4. concentrate on only water in the evenings... I have to stop the nite time eating! This is my biggest obstacle, and where I probably eat the most calories :) I mixed some crystal lite into a pitcher of water .. I think I drank TWO pitchers of water last nite. But ... it kept me from snacking!
      5. get back on here. Stay accountable. :)

      JFT, SUnday, 10.25
      1. log all food
      2. eat lite lunch .. since had a bigger breakfast
      3. mindful eating
      4. concentrate on drinking water in the evening
      5. get back on here . be accountable

      Great goals .. and you did a great job. I need to put down the part about only water after 7pm .. nitetime is my hardest time. Also I liked the idea of eating only at the table .. I forget how much that really does help ... to stop and eat slowly and pay attention to what we are eating.
