    March 19 200.8 Great video Tish. Feeling more informed on the difference in symptoms really does help to keep things calm. Thanks for the research and for sharing.

    3/26 203.2 Now that is just downright laziness and stupidity. I wouldn’t even call it self-sabotage this time. Just laziness. I burned a TON of extra calories yesterday raking and hauling. What could it have been without the extra exercise? I SHUDDER to think of THAT!!!! Aiming for a better April 2nd weigh-in. Continual improvement is the name of the game! Welcome to all the Newbies. We are so glad that you are here!

    April 2 203.2 I am dealing with some glucose drops again. They rear their ugly heads everytime I try to reduce calories or carbs. I’ve been here before. I’ll get through it. But I must say, it is not easy, and the survival instinct of humans is pretty strong. I know there is a rainbow at the end of this.

    4/9 203.9 Up & Down all week and its all my fault. My diet is unsteady. My exercise is unsteady. Therefore, my weight is unsteady. The only good thing about eating too much is that my sugar does not drop. But on the flipside, sometimes it is running too high. Clearly self-sabotage.

    4/16 202.4 Trying some new things (again) but feeling pretty good about it. Today I feel 100% motivated and on Fire to lose this weight and prepare for summer. Just don’t let me near a pizza or a donut Dear God!

    4/21 204.7 I went out of town for supplies yesterday and this is what restaurant food (even carry out eaten in the car) looks like on me. Not stylish at all! Back at it today. All healthy choices.

    04/23 204.5 A little better. I am trying to stick to plan but its been tough. I am trying an old exercise machine that I haven’t used in years for both myself and my son. I’m working hard to make sure it doesn’t become a coat rack as it is taking up valuable real estate in my small living room.

    4/30 207.9 This weight reflects 3 days of travel in the past week. Not much movement and plenty of extra restaurant calories. Working on the water weight.

    May 7 208.8 I don’t know how I missed a post but here it is. This was immediately following another long travel day. Lots of car sitting and one restaurant that I did try to stay reasonable in. I hope next week will be better!

    5/14 205.0 Much better!

    I'm okay. ❤ Not really trying to lose weight right now, just doing what will keep me stress free. I just went through a high stress event last year that put me back in this weight decade. But yeah, 2020 IS Cancelled. Lol.

    March 19 200.8 Great video Tish. Feeling more informed on the difference in symptoms really does help to keep things calm. Thanks for the research and for sharing.

    3/26 203.2 Now that is just downright laziness and stupidity. I wouldn’t even call it self-sabotage this time. Just laziness. I burned a TON of extra calories yesterday raking and hauling. What could it have been without the extra exercise? I SHUDDER to think of THAT!!!! Aiming for a better April 2nd weigh-in. Continual improvement is the name of the game! Welcome to all the Newbies. We are so glad that you are here!

    April 2 203.2 I am dealing with some glucose drops again. They rear their ugly heads everytime I try to reduce calories or carbs. I’ve been here before. I’ll get through it. But I must say, it is not easy, and the survival instinct of humans is pretty strong. I know there is a rainbow at the end of this.

    4/9 203.9 Up & Down all week and its all my fault. My diet is unsteady. My exercise is unsteady. Therefore, my weight is unsteady. The only good thing about eating too much is that my sugar does not drop. But on the flipside, sometimes it is running too high. Clearly self-sabotage.

    4/16 202.4 Trying some new things (again) but feeling pretty good about it. Today I feel 100% motivated and on Fire to lose this weight and prepare for summer. Just don’t let me near a pizza or a donut Dear God!

    4/21 204.7 I went out of town for supplies yesterday and this is what restaurant food (even carry out eaten in the car) looks like on me. Not stylish at all! Back at it today. All healthy choices.

    04/23 204.5 A little better. I am trying to stick to plan but its been tough. I am trying an old exercise machine that I haven’t used in years for both myself and my son. I’m working hard to make sure it doesn’t become a coat rack as it is taking up valuable real estate in my small living room.

    4/30 207.9 This weight reflects 3 days of travel in the past week. Not much movement and plenty of extra restaurant calories. Working on the water weight.

    May 7 208.8 I don’t know how I missed a post but here it is. This was immediately following another long travel day. Lots of car sitting and one restaurant that I did try to stay reasonable in. I hope next week will be better!

    5/14 205.0 Much better!

    5/21 204.3 I like the progress. The steps/movement/exercise is going well. There is still room for improvement on the diet. Working on it!

    5/28 204.8 Up, down, then stalled this week. Lots of hard work going on around here but I’ve GOT TO WATCH WHAT I PUT IN MY MOUTH. I won’t lie….There has been a little late-night stress eating which shows up on the scale about 4 hours later when I weigh in (I usually only sleep 4 hours so my late-night snacks affect my weigh-ins big-time!). Gotta plan for the snacks too, not just the meals. That will make all the difference!
