    If it doesn't challenge you, than it won't change you. These are the words I mutter to myself at midnight when I get home from work and stare into the freezer at those delicious Ice Cream Sandwiches.......I count to ten and grab a small handful of almonds instead. I have triggers, like we all do, getting past those triggers is my road to the promised land of health.
    A co-worker today asked me if I was loosing weight, she said my face looks thinner........
    I kinda see it but I look at my face every day, just didn't realize. I do know this tho, the difference between 250 and 215. I can tie my shoes with little effort now, I've packed most of my 38 pants and am now wearing my 36s, My Mother thinks I'm skipping meals (LOL). I feel smaller and faster on my bikes. I've been tucking my shirts in now for a few weeks, AND, I can put on my underwear without loosing my balance!!! This is a whole lot of NSV for me to take all at once. You guys have kept me on track where I may have reverted back to old habits without the friendly pressure of the group! (Pressure that I alone create for wanting to be successful and a role model) and for that I thank each and every one of you, Thank you!
    I plan on finishing out the month, and then I would like to request being put on to the Cheer leading squad so that I may enjoy a month of maintenance.

    This be me on Tuesday at 215 lbs !
    And yes that's an Ice Coffee, maybe a little bit of Kahlua in there as well! lol
    I'm all emotional about this, for real, no joke!!
    If it doesn't challenge you, than it won't change you!
    Rock on team, Much Love!


    Wow thanks for the great post

    Hello all -

    I am done in! We went to Uxbridge today for Pippa’s 3rd birthday party. The menu was gluten free, which may have been helpful in keeping calories to some moderate level. Luckily it was one of my two ‘eat up’ days of the week.

    Lots of activity too. After the cake we went for a long hike ~ Uxbridge being the hiking capital of Canada. I pushed the double stroller a good amount of the time so my footsteps weren’t tracked (Fitbit depends on swinging arms). The children wanted to be held a lot. They’ve gotten quite heavy - the one year old is about 28 lbs.

    I couldn’t resist joining in at the park, as they just opened up the swings and slides a couple of days ago and my counterpart, DIL’s mother, is quite active that way (she swims across the lake at their cottage daily). My son pushed me on the swing and did an underdog twice which had me going perilously high. I went down the slide three times too.

    You’ve never seen people so happy to have the park amenities opened back up. I went over to the water fountain and pushed the button just to see the water spout out of it. What amazing times to realize the things we take for granted.

    It was our entire circle of 10, including Wendy, who remains stranded in Canada. She had such a great day. Her biggest takeaway was the freedom she felt not having to wear a mask. She fell asleep on the drive home just like a child. (FYI, for those who don’t know, Wendy is an international college student from Vietnam who lives with me and was supposed to go home at the end of the academic year.)

    BYW, the baby in my pics yesterday is my grandson, Gilbert.

    I’ll catch up with your posts tomorrow.

    @1theresamcvean, underdogs. Awesome! I still love swinging and I’m nearly 50. You’re never too old to swing.

    Saturday 7/25
    Food: over
    Water: 64 oz
    Exercise: 25 minutes medium/high intensity

    I didn't do much with my morning. Laundry while I exercised, read a few chapters of my book for book club, then got sleepy so I took a nap.

    My family got together for supper at my sister's house. My oldest nephew and his wife were in town. it was really nice seeing them since it was Thanksgiving the last time they were here. Most of my family was there so it was nice getting together.

    We were all entertained by my almost 9 month old niece. She's so much fun to watch. She's growing so fast!

    My brother-in-law grilled burgers and there was potato salad, homemade applesauce and lots of other food. We always say if you leave this house hungry, it's your own fault.🤣

    Hi all,

    @KUMEcyclingteam - wow, huge congrats and such an inspiration. Looking fab :)

    @1theresamcvean - thank you for the kind words, hopefully shall get there in the end. Your grandbaby is just adorable <3 Sounds like you had fun at the park, I agree, swinging is always fun lol!

    @Zumba_Luvah - great loss, congrats!

    @Cafelelia - thank you for the support. Yes, the therapy is very draining but I am surprised to see some small improvements already so fingers crossed it will be worth it in the long term. Glad you're still managing to get some family time in :)

    @hope002 - I'm loving your positive attitude, as you say it's not 'fat gain' so am sure you'll be back down again next week

    @GingerPwr - congrats on the loss! Hope your stress eases up soon, and yup, self care and health takes many forms so just focus on what you need at the moment x

    Yesterday was a pretty good day. Kept under my calories and been chatting to some friends online, which is nice. I'm also trying to make more time for 'me things' and have been getting back to doing some painting this week - I'm very out of practice but enjoying it :)

    Hello everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend! It is extremely hot & humid here!🥵🥵

    I’m feeling good! I’m so focused & sticking to plan! Almost back to the 150’s, I can’t believe it! Been working out consistently. It is not easy, but definitely worth it!

    Have a great day!😊

    Saturday check in
    Food - on target
    Water - 2.2l
    Exercise - rest day
    Nice day yesterday and lately, I am trying to make weekends really be weekends for me and the family. We are back to the heatwave this weekend. I just took a walk and with the humidex, it was 100 F. So I cut the distance in half and will walk again much later tonight.
    @ljdanny - Thanks for the steps and hope that you are doing well.
    @podperson1 - Glad that you had a good day yesterday. Going back to a hobby like painting sounds wonderful.
    @tryingagain5 - That is so nice that you were able to spend time with your family!
    @GingerPwr - Fantastic loss and staying in your goal zone! Family stress is really tough. I have been having some lately too. I love you insight about what self-care looks like. It takes many, many forms, and the important thing is to keep practicing it in whatever way works for you.
    @annliz23 - Nice maintain and very, impressive steps!
    @kirsten11872 - Fantastic loss!
    @1theresamcvean - What a wonderful day! Days like that are just so good for the soul. I hope that it helped Wendy too. It cannot be easy being here and not being able to travel home).
    @KristieJC - Great way to choose you meal! I know it can be tough not eating everything that is in front of you. You are doing great! My husband is smoking brisket and a pork shoulder right now. I am a vegetarian, so I don’t eat it anyway. But the rub that he made sure smells yummy!
    @hope002 - I love your perspective and attitude towards that gain! And please never worry about the team stats as we all have our ups and downs.
