    Hi ladies! Late starting but I am trying to find friends to add on here to help with encouragement. I haven’t even gotten on the scale recently because it had fluctuated so much when I first started trying that I got discouraged. Monday my husband started CrossFit and that inspired me to jump back into calorie counting.

    I have been thinking a lot about the post from yesterday about rewarding ourselves for all we have been doing. I decided that I deserved to be treated. It is very rare I buy things just for myself, I am always buying things for my daughter. Well today I decided to change that and take advantage of Prime Day! I may have gone a bit overboard but it's been so long since I've treated myself. I've been working so hard on my life style changes. I bought myself new equipment for working out. My purchases will, hopefully, keep the momentum going. I bought new resistance bands, a thigh master, a balance trainer (similar to a Bosu), and an abdominal machine. I cannot wait for my purchases to arrive. I am so excited!

    @wanderinglight Your post resonates with me. I love being outside too and am drawn to the water. I used to be extremely active in my early 20's doing all sorts of outdoor activities. I loved it then and still love it. Though, I don't engage in those same activities anymore due to my weight/size. Physically I have difficulty doing the activities then, like you, I have the same concerns. I will fall and won't be able to get back up, I will manage to get my body stuck and won't be able to get out or I will try to sit and discover I am too big and don't fit. (thinking kayak on those last two) My daughter shares the same love for the water as I do. I want to be able to try these things with her. I don't want to be the mom standing on the shore while my neighbor takes her out in the kayak or on the paddle board. As much as I love my neighbor, I want to be the one sharing those experiences with my daughter.
    I 100% agree adventure IS for everyone!

    @MissiePK welcome!

    I'm right there with you. How inspiring that you have your daughter to share in the activities! I'll be following along with your progress through the Summer :)

    Not the best week for my health. I went over my calories a couple of times, didn’t sleep well a couple of nights so I didn’t exercise the next day, and only met my step goal 3 days (goal is 4). So I don’t think I’ll meet my weight goal this month, but that’s okay. I bought a lot of fruit yesterday and am looking forward to the fresh pineapple. 🍍

    I forgot to add @kelMee2 that some of the side effects from the vaccines are scary. My doctor told me they didn’t even know what they would be. Hope you feel better soon!

    Welcome to all of the new people!
