Waist Aways - October 2020 Team Chat
@jugar this week specifically Thursday and Friday were a bit hectic (office love) so I forgot to even come on here. 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽 I am so exited to be back...I think I should keep Sunday. I am forgetful and can get caught up during the week, but I usually manage to remember to log in on Sundays or at least Monday when i am late. It’s now 2Am sunday morning and it’s technically not been a week but I might as well.
Still on Keto...loving it. I enjoy my self on some days and allow my carbs to get to 45g (can have up to 3 ripple chocolates). I usually do not loose weight on those days. On 3-4 days I would usually keep my carbs low at 20g and intermittent fast 12-16 hours...those are my weight loss days....i have special snacks for these days too 😊. Havnt started exercise yet.
Hopefully my new office will encourage a lot of walking. I can’t believe you have an outhouse..I have never heard of iron bacteria and I am glad you are getting rid of it. It’s frustrating not having water...our toilets and baths clogged and the bathroom flooded. It was just terrible. We had to use a friends bathroom for 3 days until the plumbers found the right parts to fix it with 😅.
@Terytha wow I definitely hope it doesn’t take 4-6 months..that’s a really long time to wait for an appointment.

Wow that was a big one 🙂. Weldone
Yay I think you are the only one that uses kg apart from me. I like pounds because you can see the tiniest changes but my scales are In Kg and I used to try and convert them but I always forgot my PW. I know the feeling of being relieved when one doesn't gain as much as expected. Good luck this week.
@conleywoods thanks for the cheering!
@Terytha sorry to hear about the gallstones. That very much sucks. crossing fingers for closer to the 4 months than the 6, sheesh.
@micki48 Steps for the week: (I'll add final for Saturday tomorrow - but I know I hit 100k again this week!)
It was a beautiful, almost summery day here - my friend and a new coworker wanted to walk the Freedom Trail, so we did, with a couple of detours. Lots of steps, and a mini apple cider donut!
Why do the weekends have to go so fast though...7
Hi team, looks like there's lots of great progress this week!
I've been doing pretty good with logging and staying within my calorie goal. I have not logged today's yet but I will!
A friend and I visited our local farmer's market and stocked up on lots of yummy produce. I have a bunch of wild apples + apples from the market so I''ll be preserving them soon.
I unfortunately fell down the last half of my stairs today, twisted my right ankle and bruised my leg. Hopefully it doesn't impact my ability to walk too much, it is pretty sore though. I'll try not to let it bring me down (or up as far as the scale is concerned lol)6

@jugar You have my sympathy with your iron bacteria. We have the same thing with our well but we are able to get about 24 months between shocks.
@Terytha Good at least to have an answer for the problems that you have been having, but sorry to hear it is gallstones. And unfortunate that our medical system in Alberta is so backed up. I would like to believe it is due to Covid-19 but I waited 16 months in 2018-19 to see a gastroenterologist. Hopefully you won't have too much more grief with them in the interim.
I had a busy day in the yard. Unseasonably warm at 18 C (64 F) so I managed to dig the last 15 hills of potatoes and then tilled everything before I put my garden to bed for the winter. My body is counting that as my exercise for the day.8
It’s been raining here (Luxembourg) for the last few weeks. This weekend there’s sun ☀️☀️☀️ but it’s only 50ish degrees. I was outside all of Saturday and it felt amazing! I forgot how great it feels to just stand in the sun. More of that today!7
PW 27sep: 65.9kg (145.2lbs)
PW 4oct: 65.3kg (143.96lbs)
CW 11oct: 64.2kg (141.54 lbs)
LTD: 1.7kg (3.75lbs)7

spyro88 Posts: 464 Member@graceojo999 I use kg too - purely because I don't understand it as much as lbs/ stone so it stops me stressing as much about the numbers! Haha.
Morning all. I'm feeling good today. I had a lovely walk on the south downs yesterday with my partner - it was a little chilly but climbing the hills kept us warm! Lots of sheep, cows and wonderful views, and a lovely pit stop afterwards for a cuppa and a small piece of ginger cake. Delicious (can't say I wasn't jealous of his hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows though!)
Today I have my gym session booked in and am gonna be doing my best for a loss this week!
Good luck to everyone7
Sunday weigh in:
PW - 183.2
CW - 183.1
The loss is tiny - but it's a loss!
Happy Sunday, folks 🙂8
@spyro88 That sounds like a gorgeous walk! With suburban sprawl around here, I'd have to drive a ways to get to that kind of landscape.
@Terytha sorry you've got that to deal with. Good to have finally determined the cause of your discomfort but not a big help when you are feeling crappy and have to bear with it for such a long time before any resolution.
@jguldi11 Apples!! yum. I haven't been reaching for them as a snack for awhile but cold applesauce with a dash of cinnamon has been my go to ice cream substitute since January. I've been buying the Mott's unsweetened (can't imagine added sugar to it - it's certainly sweet enough) but I may look for for some apple bargains and make my own - I hate canning though so I'd have to try to jam it into the already packed freezer. Are you preserving them in jars?
@eggfreak yes I will be using jars. Canning is a lot of work but I feel so satisfied after so I keep doing it! And I don't have much freezer space so this works better for me. At least with apples I use the regular water bath which is a lot easier than using the pressure canner!
@Terytha my sister ended up with gallstones and gallbladder attacks a while ago, they did her surgery through the bellybutton and the incisions were tiny, so she said the healing process wasn't bad at all, and now of course feels much better. That is a very long wait for you, I hope you're able to find some type of relief in the time being!!
@Kali225 I agree about the weekends being too short. Sounds like you're making the most of it though 😊 I'm hoping to get a cider doughnut myself next weekend!4
@micki48 Please include me in this month's step challenge if you haven't already. Thanks.
We're #1 this week! We lost more than the other teams, and we are 2nd in the % of the team who stayed in the green, by however small an amount. Well done!!!12
@micki48 my steps for last week:
10/5 10,406 *
10/7 6,418 *
10/9 5,242 *
10/10 5,162 *
Depending on this ankle I may not do great with steps the first few days of this week 😞 I am able to walk on it though so hoping I can still hit my goal more days than not.4
Steps and Workouts for the Week
30 min Intervals
30 min Barre
Goal for this week - walk to work 4 days, 2 additional walks, 5 workouts.
The Green Challenge Percentage of people who lost weight this week. No matter how small the loss the weights are recorded in green.
