    I haven't been here since round 106! Back in March. In related news, I went into strict quarantine in March (and still haven't left the house more than 3 times!) and gained TWENTY POUNDS. In 5 months! I've attached two pictures that tell the story: you can see that I had a nice downward trend line until March, and then whoosh! Up it went!

    I fell off about the same time (a little after) and I have the same issue! Now my body is battling with me and trying to randomly gain when I do all the things I did before to lose.

    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    8/15 116.0 Oh well, this too may pass. Still well below ANY previously set goal. Out to dinner with friends last night. Absolutely no way to track Italian Chopped Salad in a darkened dining room with everything in 1/4” squares. It was expensive and really not great. Oh well live and learn. I should have gotten my standard burger/no bun.
    8/16 117.0 The little bit of salad I brought home tasted better after sitting in the refrigerator over night. I added a little blue cheese and pepperoni to it to bring the protein up, still really short of my changed macro! Sat out on the driveway social distancing with 2 neighbors. It was 109 degrees, I drank 2 quarts of ice water in those 2 hours. Total of 5 or 6 all day. Supposed to be 115-116 every day this week. Life in the desert! 😁
    8/17 116.0 I’m having trouble getting as much protein as I want. I just can’t eat that much. Had some celery with Laughing Cow Asiago because I needed protein and crunch! Still below protein goal.
    8/18 116.0 Someone said BBQ and that sounds delicious for dinner! I know just the place! We’ll see.
    8/19 116.0

    I really like your graph(s). Would you be willing to share what you're using to make them?

    I use the Libra app on my phone -- I need to update goals and timeline since it's been awhile but its super helpful for me to see trends rather than just daily weigh-ins. There's a statistics page and a settings page - I have mine set for 10 smoothing days and 7 days for forecasting.

    It also has BMI and body mass graphs (I don't really use because I know my scale's body fat % is not accurate but I do input the daily body fat % into it just for reference.

    @jenn990205 I am sure we're not alone in this! We worked hard before the pandemic hit, ate through the stress, and have learned from it, right? I'm being very forgiving of myself because this is a once-in-a-lifetime global crisis, and if I didn't keep it together perfectly, it's okay. I'm ready to tackle this NOW. We aren't truly starting over, either because we already have the skill set get back to where we were. We can do this! We've already proven it!

    @musicsax Thank you so much! I am seeing many familiar names and it absolutely does feel like coming back to old friends. Wish I hadn't left! Ah, well. Looking forward to following everyone's paths again, including yours!

    @CamandJarvis Yep, our graphs shoot up on basically the same timeline. Doesn't it always seem harder the second time around? To be honest, I have tried to lose a couple of times since I started regaining, but I couldn't seem to stick with it, and I kept giving myself the same excuse: there's an unprecedented pandemic, be easy on yourself! I still feel like it's important to be gentle with myself for losing my progress during a REALLY stressful time, but I've finally drawn a distinction between not beating myself up about mistakes and creating some discipline in my daily habits. I don't need to waste time feeling bad when I mess up, but I still need to make an effort to work on my goals every day! That's the key difference.

    The other thing I realized is that I need to go back to what worked before, and that's what I'm doing by rejoining here. Posting daily and reading other people's struggles and triumphs lets me know I'm not alone. Accountability and being part of a great community of caring people works. Tracking every calorie works. I didn't mention it in my first post, but IFing on a 16:8 schedule works for me (I eat noon to 8 p.m.). I'm prepared to adjust things if I don't feel like the same things are working as well, but that's where I'm starting- back to the habits I began with. I know the first week is going to be extra hard, though! Starting is worse than just sticking with it. Gotta remember that!

    I'm 100% with you! My body is just in that annoying transition time which it fights every old habit I had with gain instead of loss. I know it'll come in time, I'm just impatient because I know it works. I need to get back into consistent IF (I did the 16:8 and from 11-7 prior to moving to Texas) but I'm not sure what my new schedule will be once I start commuting so I've kinda made that excuse for not starting back up now. I know, logically, I could create the habit again and just shift my eating window based on work schedule, but I'm not always following my own logic here.

    We've so got this!

    @_JeffreyD_ Nice! It's our first season with one and we are hooked! I always wanted one, but the whole quarantine situation made us take the plunge. I even heard my husband say as we were talking about next summer he mentioned us still having the CSA, so I'm glad he's thinking about it that way!

    Yes this has been our third year. It challenges us to eat better. Sometimes it's hard to find ways to eat some of the different things we see.
