    Height: 5'7" (or thereabouts)
    SW (1/1/2021) = 186.8
    GW = 145-150

    1/4 = 186.2
    1/11 = 184.8
    1/18 =183.4
    1/25 =184.0
    2/1 = 182.5
    2/8 = 181.6
    2/15 = 179.2
    2/22 = 183.7
    3/1 = 181.4
    3/9 = 181.4
    3/15 = 181.6
    3/22 = 181.6
    3/30 = 181.3
    4/5 - 182.0 (Bugger it!)
    4/13= 181.8
    4/19 = 181.0 (again, down but up)

    The downs - the usual.

    The WIN? 32.77 miles on my bike on Saturday in just under three hours of riding time. Took a 45 minute (or so) break at the halfway point to eat breakfast (way too many carbs, but a really good chorizo/egg/papas burrito and some of the best horchata I've ever had). I was riding "with" a group of people who left me in the dust. They all had the fancy, multi-thousand dollar bikes (I heard one say that another was riding a $10,000 bike. I thought he was exaggerating so I googled the brand when I got home. Low end for that bike brand was about $4200. High end? $13,000.00. Holy ****!!!!) My bike is a hybrid so it's heavy and not meant for speed. I signed on for this ride, hoping it would be a mixed group of riders. Yeah... that didn't happen. And I told them I'd not be riding with them again. Still It was a good morning for a ride and I enjoyed myself.

    Challenges - water, water, water... and carbs. Working on it. :) Also heat. It's definitely warming up and I'm not a fan. I'll be having to get up and out at the crack of dawn here soon. And this night owl doesn't like it. Oh well....

    Hope you all have a great week.

    1.7 pound gain this week. Not proud, but not aggravated either. I gave myself the week to “enjoy” foods. I ate pizza to excess, wolfed down an entire Jimmy John’s sub, and pigged out on Chinese food.

    Once again I felt uncomfortably full and guilty afterwards. I know I can enjoy these foods, but simply cut down the portions, but I have portion control issues with my favorite foods—potato chips are the perfect example!

    Anyway, I’m back on my logging wagon... logging all of it... and letting the guilt go...
    Just now I enjoyed a portion of chips...and I’ll have a large glass of water.

    My next hurdle is breaking the 200 pound barrier. This is when I start to self sabotage... but I’ve got a million projects to finish...and when I’m distracted with fun things to do, I snack less.

    So glad we’re all on this journey together! Together we can do anything.❤️

    Happy Wednesday!

    I got nuthin'. Absolutely nuthin'.

    Last week I saw a bumper sticker on a car as I was taking my daughter to her ECT appointment. It said, "I hope something good comes to you today." I send that wish out to all of you.

    *Sigh* Yesterday I was 179.6, the day before 181.0. Did I really gain two pounds in a day? Was yesterday's weight accurate or is my scale wacked? I'm at that point where I just don't give a #$*& anymore. Not a good thing. I need to clear my head and get myself back into what I need to do. All that being said, I had a really nice bike ride, if somewhat lonely, bike ride on Saturday. Looking forward to repeating that this coming weekend.

    Wishing you all a great week.

    I’ve been stuck, too, and not really in to it for the past month or so… going through the motions. But like you, finding your fun exercise in biking, mine is dancing/walking workouts.

    I just have to get back on logging and tracking. We can totally do this!
