    Keep trying until you find the right way to manage your weight for you.

    Hi All,

    I've done the same after each baby and after reaching each goal. I want to continue staying on this journey but I find when I don't have fellow "journiers" alongside me it's so much easier to fail. Would anyone like to join me? I'm 35 years old with 3 kiddos ages 15,11, and 6, and a husband that eats all the junk food he sees and doesn't gain an ounce. :( Very hard living with that as much as I love him. Anyway, if you're interested in doing this together I am very excited about being an encouragement to you and spurring you on to our mutual goal of being healthy and committed! :)

    Here we go Tuesday!! So rocked out my four days of yoga, running, calisthenics!! Now for my rest day. Today is yoga a PE bike ride(homeschool our kids) and light PE calisthenics!! Tuesday has been a high stress day for the last few months. Been stress eating and on the go every Tuesday!! (Supply day for our business) Also Tues has had bad weather for the last 2 months it's hilarious!! So I decided this is my free day!! Light work out just to keep from getting stiff. Yesterday weighed in at 178.6!! Happy about that!! Already seeing small changes gotta keep at it!! Tuesday I got this!!

    The weather was a no go yesterday!! So I didn't ride bikes with the kiddos!! No biggie!! Tuesday is my full chill day. I did do supplies which is a work out in itself haha here we go hump day!! 1400 calories 1 gallon of water yoga clean houses do office work cook dinner and then play some uno flip!! It's real fun!!! I won't weigh in again till Fridays run. The scale has been scary lately. I need to get back in the mindset .....it's a tool to use not a judge!! Weight loss is a battle of the brain!! Food addiction and media expectations of perfection are a mind melt!! Gotta focus on being the best me. I'm in my late 30s and I can run.... couldn't at 18!!! I'm a badass and I want to be the best badass I can be for me!! *kitten* em all!! Hahaha

    Some people are so mean on here!! Makes me mad. This is a mental battle and to break people down is jacked up!! We all need support and not to be told the way that works for us is wrong. Each person is so different and their journey must be too. Just sad to see so many haters.......

    Where are you seeing this? Just curious because your thread has been very supportive so I don't know if you mean other threads or people you've friended because if that's the case then just un-friend them.

    Sorry about being mean -- keep in mind the typed words here do not necessarily allow tone or real feelings to come through. I have been here before as well. And I recall it was great so I came back. I think I was majorly lonely and just struggling with son so eating out became a trap. Anyhow, I still eat out and it is not good so I am more staying home. Waste of money, too much salt, and who knows what's in it? Trying to do intermittent fasting from 6 pm through 10 am this time. I don't have a thyroid so can not understand that. I just pop a morning pill. About 60 pounds more to reach goal weight and I am afraid of losing the motivation.

    It was another thread. People looking for motivation and support and people pick them apart!! That just makes me mad!! People don't need to be told they are wrong....because it worked for that 1 guy that one time. Everyone's journey is so different!! Sometimes people just need to hear!! YOU GOT THIS ROCK STAR!!!

    Eating out is hard. I usually get something with chicken and strip it of all the carbs it comes with and add it to a salad!! Hahah 😜 people are rude and talk trash about people's process because they had success everyone should find the same success just as they did in the same way.....haha doesn't work like that!! This process is way more mental than physical!! As humans we are addicted to routine!! It's hard to break negative habits and form new healthy ones!! My key to success is always all things in moderation with lots of cardio!!! Move more than I eat and eventually the scale starts to show results!!! With my thyroid this time it has been so much harder!!! I wish they would take it out!! 3 nodules and I'm miserable!!! My motivation is I wanna have fun adventures with my kids for as long as I can and letting the thyroid win won't allow that!! So I'm gonna beast mode forever!!
