    Success of the week: The air got better. I even saw a sunset. Shoulder is doing better.

    Struggle of the week: Smoke and fog are back, especially in the morning and evening. Scale is toying with my psyche. Our county is back on the governor's "watch list" because of increases in COVID infections. More stress eating.

    Struggle: Mom still not great, and now the dog has had her CCL surgery and needs constant one on one. Missed yoga 2 days in a row and forget walking for now. It's all about Lucy right now...
    Success: I did manage to keep the eating under better control, added some a new yoga playlist for variety.

    Success/Struggles:
    I was very tired Wednesday through Friday morning and hungry Saturday and Sunday. I've nibbled on sevral items all Sunday and Saturday night, but I believe I still stayed within my calorie range. My measurements have already decreased, I feel lean even with the increase in food, and I will definitely increase my shoulder press weight this week! I'm excited to complete another week. I know I'm only on week two, but I'm just looking forward to reevaluating after 1 month.

    Success/Struggles:

    As far as successes, I went shopping last week and bought some new dress shirts off the discount rack that were all slim fit! That was a nice feeling…

    Struggles have been due to the fact that I had a dental procedure on Friday that has really limited my eating for a few days now so my calories have dropped off and I’m down a good 2 lbs, just at the bottom of my “range”. It’s leveled off the last few days which is good, but I’m having to eat ice cream at night just to get calories in so I don’t keep losing (oh darn ;)).

    Things are going well. Developing interests & gaining insights through meditation & different online classes.

    Only struggle is feeling in house arrest due to unhealthy air, but this, too, shall pass.

    Struggle: Losing muscle tone I suppose so I should get on the stepper.
    Success: Eating is limited and by my choice now since I'm not cooking for the others that live here. Mom is making some progress although still needs round the clock care. Lucy loves the yoga music and is minimally invasive when I'm doing my stretches :-)

    I’d like to lose a bit to get back to 70 kg, but I’m still happy at around 75 kg.

    I’m experimenting with seeing how my satiety levels are in relation to the types of foods I eat. Trying to eat more whole foods, which I’ve been getting pretty good at, and less sugar, and it’s going quite well.


    Success/struggles of the week: Not a bad week at all. Getting used to the new normal. Walked 5 km yesterday, and my hip is OK, yay!

    Hi! My name is Kristen. And I struggle to maintain my weight. I have had great success losing/gaining, but I'm hoping this group helps me be more accountable. I weigh only 1x week on Sundays, so that's when I'll check in. My 2 goals in 2020 are to not let the scale go above 153 and weigh in EVERY Sunday for the WHOLE YEAR. This seems easy to most, but I get lazy and make excuses why I don't need to weigh in and then all of a sudden everything in my closet has shrunk. LOL

    Success: Did a much better job this week controlling late night munchies and as a result got a whoosh! Because carbs at night = water retention in the morning. Also, rowed in my first Regatta in 37 years.

    Struggles: It's a really busy time of year. I'm trying to get as much rowing in before the season ends, I'm working full time, and I've been doing quite a bit of volunteer work with the Democratic party and was just offered a "promotion" with them which means even more volunteer time. But it's only 3 more weeks, so I can tough it out.
