@mulecanter @jessicakrall8 @emmajhareI @simbersea Awesome pet pics!
Pooh. I am really late for my Wednesday weigh in. I weighed...just forgot, and then community kept blocking me...and we got the lack of a plan plan for school reopening which is wear a mask when it's convenient, try to stay socially distant and hold your breath, I guess.
And @mulecanter I confess, I was within 1 pound of goal, but am currently 12 up from goal, which isn't bad all thing considered and I am blaming the new hair growth (although it is much less than I had when I was closer to goal!)
7/14 5456 (Went blueberry picking and missed my walk)
7/17 30,176 Walked early and then a friend called, said she was walking and well, so COVID desperate for companionship, I dropped everything and dashed out to meet her. We walked about 5 more miles (maintaining 6 feet between us!)
7/18 6876 More blueberry picking....but I think yesterday covered my two low step days!2

Stayed the same again this week but I’m pleased about that as I’ve not been walking much or making good choices!1

I'm now 1 lb from goal weight (63 kg). Hoping next week is the week. Going to post an old shorts vs new shorts pic later.2
So as I approach goal weight I wanted to share a couple of things with you all.
Firstly, this is me in my shorts from eight months ago. I was ~200 lb back then (having already lost a bit of weight from my heaviest around June 2019 - when I was too scared to step on the scales).
When I joined F2F in January my goals were to feel healthier and happier, and not to turn into a beetroot every time I tried to exercise. I think I've managed that (mostly). I still get a beetroot head from exercising vigorously but not from running up the stairs!
The second thing I wanted to share is that sadly the hard part for me is definitely not over!
This is my weight chart since I first discovered MFP 10 years ago. If you could see the data points you would see that every time I stop using the app to chart my food and weight, it piles back on again with some extra. I'm good at losing weight. I am NOT good at maintaining it the other end.
So my lovely Trimstones, I'm looking to you to help prevent the rebound this time. Please keep inspiring me and sharing your great ideas, as well as the hard bits, so we can all keep on the right path together!
