    Crazy week, nor’easter came through Tuesday night and knocked out power until the middle of the night Friday then back out for a few hours Saturday night. Needless to say no workout since Monday and eating hasn’t been great. We have a generator that powers some stuff but not the oven. We seem to be good now so looking forward to finally getting a good nights sleep and a more normal week.

    Let’s get to know each other!

    1. Tell us a little about yourself?
    2. Why are you on this journey? What pushed you to start?
    3. What are your triggers and how can you avoid them?
    4. Do you have a favourite diet you go by? ie keto, low carb
    5. What is your favourite way to workout?
    6. What are some of your goals this month?
    7. What do you expect to gain from the team?

    1) Hi, I am a 58 year old, 5’7” kidney/pancreas transplant patient and former diabetic. Currently stage 3 chronic kidney disease.
    2). I have lost and regained weight several times. The most recent was March 8, 2020 when Covid was diagnosed less than an hour from me and realized that would have a poor outcome if caught covid.
    3) Loneliness, stress and lack of sleep are my major triggers. I am still working on finding coping skills that don’t involve food.
    4) I count calories. Limit protein due to kidney disease and do not eat dairy because severely lactose free intolerant.
    5) my preferred exercises are walking outside and resistance training. Have not been exercising. Am in a plaster cast on my right lower leg with orders to stay off my feet.
    6) Goal is to maintain or lose weight until am recovered.
    7) Learning from others and how others cope with stress, fitness and weight loss.

    You have no idea... I actually "liked" this photo... I still don't like bugs; however, I'm not an abject entomophobe, like I used to be. Spiders were just thrown in the mix!! It was so bad, that I had a friend, who's a therapist give me a couple of sessions of EMDR. That is short for Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy. Long story, but this fear was from some childhood incidents!! Anyway, you were so kind to hide the photo, lol. No, I don't like bugs, etc., believe me; but, I'm way better than I used to be!!😳🤣🤣

    Happy halloween everyone.

    Check in for 10/31:
    Steps - 14259
    Calories 1735. To many snacks. Mini candy bar here, fortune cookie there.
    Exercise - walk this morning. 3 mph 105 minutes.

    One of my side boobs is swollen along with my armpit. It is on the side where I got the flu and covid shots on the 27th. I hope it is from that and will go down soon.

    @Bluetail6 Whilst I have always loved them I fully understand that many others do not. A fear is a fear regardless of the reason why and the last thing I want to do is cause undue stress to people.

    I'm glad your hubby was impressed though :smile:

    Daily check-in calories 1290, goal is to stay on or under 1400. Hoping to record steps soon awaiting my counter.

    Had a couple of drinks yesterday and really wanted to chuck it all in and eat chocolate and chips but when I went shopping I had only bought stuff my partner likes. So I finally had to admit defeat because there was no bad food that I liked in the house 🤣 if you don't buy it you can't eat it!
