    Hi guys!!
    I am sheltering in place due to hurricane Sally... trying not to bored eat! My grandson has decided this is good sleeping weather and has not played much today. It is not bad yet. Looks like another 10 hours or so before the worst hits. Winds are not expected to be too bad, but 15+” of rain anticipated.

    Fingers crossed for Saturday’s weigh in!!

    Stay safe. I have never experienced the full force of a hurricane, only remnants. I can’t even imagine the real deal.

    So nervous to make my first post! I've been reading some of this thread and I hope by joining I will have something positive to add and some support to receive along the way, as I know it won't be smooth sailing. Generally good health as an adult is starting to break down due to lack of self-care and focus on prioritizing my needs and I find myself staring down prediabetes numbers in my mid-forties. Suddenly my "far-off future self" feels terrifyingly present and way less amorphous than before, so hopefully this will be the motivation I need to keep me going this time long after the pounds come off. And I can't pinpoint why exactly I am reluctant to discuss any of this--even the little wins--with anyone in my IRL circle. Maybe it's the fear of failure, or that sometimes people get weird about weight loss ... But hopefully a weekly check-in with someone besides myself will help me feel accountable and inspired to push through when the going gets rough. Thank you in advance for your hospitality. :)

    SW 9/1: 221(highest all time)
    CW 9/16: 215
    1 mini GW: 210 by October 3 (best present I can give myself!)
    2 mini GW: 190 by November 25
    GW: 135

    Weigh In Day: Friday
    PW (Previous Weight): 194.6
    CW (Current Weight): 191.7
    LTD (Loss to Date): 15.3

    I couldn’t believe the scale today and must have weighed 5 times. That’s puts me over 15lbs LTD and 2.9 for the week. To acknowledge this and my BMI now firmly under 35, I have changed my bitmoji from the largest body to the second largest 😂

    No movement in the scale today which is ok with me. The scale tends to creep up on the weekend and starts to drop on Tuesday.

    @klw49 - welcome 😊
