    December 3—208.1 pounds… there it goes up…Popeyes chicken sandwich, mashed potatoes, and Mac and cheese last night for dinner. I know better than to eat that much at night. Feeling stuffed this morning and needing to drink a gallon of water to quench my thirst. Logged it…Acknowledged it… and moving forward. Making a big salad for lunch! 🥗 Happy Day 3!

Meal planning and drinking lots of water helps so much! Happy Tuesday! 😁

    Hi I'm happy to be here, I'd jump in but no way I'd JUMP with all the pain that would bring...lol but I can bounce a little. I weigh 265.8 pounds today. the last time I was on here in 2018 I was 215.... looking forward to going in the right direction again. My weigh starting going up the week I decided it was time for a knee replacement. Feb will be 2 years since that surg. I have lose 10 to 15 pounds since then but life events caused me to give in to what felt good. Now I want to get on track so I can do some of the things on that bucket list. Glad to have this group. We can do it. Most of us have done it before. Regardless we can help each other get on and stay on the path to better health.

    @jm216 I think you showed how the holiday can be enjoyed without total loss of control. I believe you will be in wonderland soon. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
