    It's a slow trickle down...but I'm happy and optimistic nonetheless. Hoping to get to 180 by mid/end of June.

    Slow, but still progress. I have not done so many things I wanted to do for myself. Trying to serve the employees and my customers and honoring commitments I have made. Today my prayer is to be able to accomplish my tasks faster and more easily than I think I can so that its not a mental battle to get up from my desk and work on me.

    @brown6267 I like your steps. I need to up my game :)
    @pacsnc6 I'm cheering for you. I know you can do it.

    I'll take the maintain
    Saw my PCP for a six month check up this week. Still doing great - blood levels are all normal, she was pleased with my weight and BP, thrilled with the results of my treatments and encouraging me to keep up the good work. I was not worried though. I will survive the prednisone too!

    April Week Three

    Weigh In Day: Thursdays
    PW (Previous Weight): 171.2 (April 9th)
    CW (Current Weight): 170.0 (April 15th)
    LTD (Loss to Date): 64 lbs

    That's what I like to see. I weighed myself before and after spin class this morning (170.2 before, 170.0 after), and was happy to see that the bloat appears to be gone. I then immediately drank some water, because I lost about a quarter pound of sheer sweat during spin class, and that's not allowed. :wink:


    I've been doing... okay with food. There's been a few pretzel + chocolate chip binges I'm not necessarily proud of. And I ate seven servings of crackers in just two sittings, which is an improvement from where I used to be, but still an offense to the bowl-centric behavior I've been trying to cultivate.

    I also need to stop assuming that just because I have extra calories at my disposal, it doesn't mean I absolutely need to consume them. This usually leads to eating when not hungry, eating too much, eating right before bed, etc. My hyperfixation on numbers has returned, and it needs to stop. According to the body scan I did a couple weeks ago, my BMR (basal metabolic rate) is around 1550 calories. And as long as I am eating at least that many calories per day (not usually an issue for me, I know), there's no need to eat when not hungry.


    In the past week, I have completed:
    • Six resistance training classes
    • Five spin classes
    • Two cryotherapy sessions for recovery

    This was definitely overdoing it a bit, and had I not taken myself to cryotherapy and stretched and all that good stuff, I would not be able to continue on with my schedule. One of the main signs of overworking yourself is having issues sleeping, regardless of exhaustion levels. And this was something I noticed cropping up recently. I'm taking small steps to dial it back a bit, but definitely not enough, so my goal is to focus far more on my recovery in the coming week, especially since I am getting the second dose of the vaccine next weekend.


    I'm okay. Things are not easy right now and it feels like there's a battle on a few too many fronts at the same time. But I'm taking it day by day and doing what I can with what I have. The drop I saw this morning provided me with a much-needed boost to get me through the day, and will benefit me as I move through this day full of meetings (coffee is going to help too).

    Here's your reminder to hydrate,
    adjust your posture,
    release some tension (tense one muscle at a time, and then release it, repeat as necessary - it helps, I promise!),
    and be kind to yourself today.

    Sorry I forgot to weigh in today. I will do it tomorrow morning. It has been a crazy week for me. I actually thought today was Friday. My oldest son went to aruba to get married, we are watching his 2 dogs. One of them has managed to escape 3 times. He has dug so many holes under my fence and broke off his leash. We keep blocking the holes and putting the dirt back but hasn't worked, you cant even blink and he's gone. The other one just likes to jump on you all the time. They are giant dogs. I have just a little thing.
    My youngest son and granddaughter have been staying with us. His girlfriend has been sick she went to get a rapid covid test which took forever to come back, said she was negative, she wanted to come see the baby but on her way some guy ran a stop sign and slammed into her. Shes ok. She still doesn't feel good so they are retesting her today. I got my first shot yesterday, I feel ok for now. I haven't exorcised with all the chaos in my house so I image my weight isn't great. The dogs go back home tomorrow so hopefully a little normalcy.
