    @HoopsGuy72 So how many people do you think complied with Newsome’s crazy rules - which of course, our SoSoLacking decided to impose. I was depressed over the weekend and admit I was a bit surprised by that. That may be why my eating has been a bit out of control. I know we both can get our heads on straight and get this done!

    JGM10D Round 133
    🎄🎅🏻🌟🤶🌟🎅🏻🌟🎄
    🎄 DECEMBER
    🎄
    🎄🌟🎅🏻🌟🤶🌟🎅🏻🌟🎄

    Looking forward:
    You are not stuck at home
    You are SAFE at home
    One word can change your attitude
    ☠️One cough can change your life☠️

    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷

    November focus: improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale
    Aims:
    2020 Focus:
    • Stabilise weight under 150
    • Strengthen strategies to reframe the tendency to use unhealthy snack food as a reward/treat.
    • Make sure I have prepared healthy snacks available
    • Cut down on eating between meals by keeping busy


    Never give up! Never give in!
    Recent Back Story:
    • 2018 goal: get back down to 160 ✅
    • 2019 goal: proceed down to 150 ✅ with 2 months to spare
    • 2020 goal: maintain below 150 dropping slowly down to 145 ✅ Working on it. Strength training has slowed progress, but that’s okay.
    • That's a WIN in my book!
    • 2020
    • Focus: maintenance! I might even manage to lose a bit more ever so slowly.
    • (One good thing about Covid is that I don't have to traverse the minefield of family celebration meals.)

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    I'm in! Thank you, @GrandmaJackie!

    70 year old female...5'5" ...I used to be 5'7" but arthritis hit and I lost two inches, so now that two inches is squished around my waist like the billows of a big accordion... :D...Oh, well. I'll just keep working on it.

    The Shelter in Place has everyone freaked. We need to remain calm and respectful of each other.

    SW: 158 (11/24)
    GW: 156

    Day/Weight/Comment
    11/23 - Forgot
    11/24 -158 - I'm sad I've gained 5 since last month, but this is around the weight I've been for most of this year, give or take, so I'm not fretting it too much. I plan of starting my home workouts again tonight.
    11/25 -158 - I did not start my workouts yesterday due to my class schedule, but today is a new day!
    11/26 - I forgot again, but I did my workout yesterday (but not tonight).:)
    11/27 - Forgot again... I only remember when I turn on my computer before breakfast, apparently.
    11/28 -155.6 - Probably not a lot of work on my part... I presumed the 158 was retention of water. (I had Friday night snacks, too, so it was really unexpected.)
    11/29 -153.2 - Back to my "set point" I think. I snacked on celery and nuts last night, instead of higher carbs like usual. Still need to incorporate some cardio and more weights.
    11/30 - DNW
    12/01 -154.8 - Too many snacks, not enough calorie burn... Looking forward to the new month!!
    12/02 - 155.4 - These jumps are the reason I used to take an average of my 7 days when I initially started weighing every day... :lol:

    Day/Weight/Comment
    11/23: 125.2- Well last round seems to have been a nonstarter and I am sure Thanksgiving and having both my kids home will make this round challenging, Good Luck to you all!
    11/24: 126- So frustrating! honestly thought scale would be going other way . Went to body pump and played over 2 hours of Pickleball- challenging and competitive games too. Was kind of hoping to have some deficit banked for a decadent Thursday.
    11/25: 124.8 Yeah!- finally right direction. Yesterday did spin class in basement since had BSF in morning. Bummed my tennis shoe broke right before starting to play pickleball at the racquet club - these are the very good players, I was lucky I had my training shoes but after 4 games notice the difference n shoes- twisted my ankle ( the Eccentrics Stretching must be really working, ankle only sore for 15 minutes) but did not want to take any chances with knee. I finally must be maturing- I quit playing before I really hurt myself
    11/26: 123.8 - Good way to start the day! Probably mostly due to body functions- but great for ego on a dy when I know I will overeat and drink. Small family gathering as all our extended family is out of state. Both kids home, no guests this year. Slept in- also may be why weight dropped so much measured over 3 hours later in morning. H"ope to be up only slightly tomorrow.
    11/27: 125.8
    11/28: 126 I am 55 and thought I started menopause- Sadly I was wrong-
