7/2 118.5 had a high carb drink yesterday evening. Our OMAD has crept to 5 or later. Today it will be around 3 so I can go meet my gal pals and DH can go to a meeting. Virtual doctor appointment yesterday was great. My cholesterol has AGAIN improved while eating LCHF. We are both slightly anemic from giving blood donation 2 weeks earlier. Who knew it it could take 2-3 MONTHS to get your hemoglobin back up at our age!?! So adding iron to the pill boxes! He also wants me to take gabapentin to see if it helps my leg (sciatica) and that concerns me because it can cause weight gain.

I'm just too danged cussed to let this thing knock me back, and ruin all the effort I have put in to get here. I am stepping up my routine, and taking control. Sheltering in place means I can fully concentrate on getting in my exercise, and preparing healthy food.Aims:
June: focus on maintaining and increasing my progress
2020: Goal is to stabilise weight around 145
Strengthen strategies to reframe the tendency to use unhealthy snack food as a reward/treat.
Make sure I have prepared healthy snacks available
Cut down on eating between meals by keeping busy
Never give up! Never give in!Back Story:
2018 goal: get back down to 160 ✅
2019 goal: proceed down to 150 ✅ with 2 months to spare
2020 goal: maintain below 150 dropping slowly down to 145 ✅ So far, so good.That's a WIN in my book!2020Focus: maintenance! I might even manage to lose a bit more ever so slowly.

THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change. REMINDERS One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!
