    I think I was under yesterday but will post later after I figure out how to reconnect my Fitbit.🤷‍♀️. These "updates" are killing me. 😕

    @DaffyGirl88 Oh my gosh, me too!! I feel like I am in control, but apparently not when something like this completely derails me!

    Trying to get ready for Christmas takes a lot of time. Sounds like Christmas is stressing a few of us out, hang in there, we can do it.
    Good night Team TBBT. ⛄🎅🤶🎄🎁👼❄☃😴

    Absolutely! We need to cut ourselves some slack this time of year, and that will mean different things to different people. It may mean that the duration or intensity of our workouts is less. It may mean that we are eating some foods that we don't normally eat because we know they are not good for us. It may mean spending more time in the "maintenance calories" zone, or even a little bit of time in the "over calories" zone. But what it does not mean for anyone, is to eat the whole tray of cookies on the table! (A metaphor for what I had been doing the last couple of days!!)

    Week 2
    Sunday
    PW=138
    CW=138.2

    Sorry, I was losing tracks… having a back pain and suffering from pain. Could not do so much sports. Staying at home, ending up with eating biscuits…

    Hope to get back to 136 at the end of this month.

    @dracocapricorn So sorry to hear that you have been in pain! The good news is you basically maintained while you were eating all those biscuits!! I hope you get some relief soon!

    RESULTS - WEEK #2

    Top 3 Individual % by Team:

    The Big Butt Theory

    1st - @sandkp. - 1.50%
    2nd - @jenkindo. - 0.59%
    3rd - @DaffyGirl88. - 0.41%

    Congratulations to Shawnee, Jen and Sue for being team TBBT's top three losers, respectively, for the second week of December!

    As a team, literally half of us gained weight last week, so we did not do well. (If you fell into that category, you can take some comfort in knowing that you were not alone!)

    I know its hard this time of year, but this week will be easier than next week, as least as far as food choices go, so try to make the most of it while we can!

    @gsheppy and @forbes_melissa Are you still with us? I know things are hard right now and/or not going the way you had planned, but that makes it more crucial than ever to not be disconnected! Let us know how things are going, even if they are going poorly; we can lend a listening ear, or maybe even some suggestions.

    Tuesday 14 December
    Track: Yes
    Under: ?? my Fitbit says that I was so I'm going with that
    Exercise: yes

    So I have uninstalled and reinstalled MFP on my phone and reconnected my Fitbit. We'll see if that works.

    It's the weirdest thing. I've doen the steps to connect my MFP and Fitbit accounts and on my phone my diary shows no exercise calories and I get message in the picture (I cannot uncheck the box that says do not track steps). But when I look at my diary online I have 289 extra calories from exercising. Weird....

    @ashleymullo6195 You know there's no way you put on 2 pounds of fat overnight. Don't let it get to you like that!

    You've got this :)

    @ashleymullo6195 don't let that number on the scale get to you too much. You don't have a lot to lose, and any little thing can make your weight fluctuate. Hormones can almost certainly bring weight fluctuations, the amount of salt in the food you ate, how hard you worked out, etc. It's all a part of the process, but things will work out if you follow it. That number really can be a buzz kill sometimes, but just remember binging and going crazy won't help that number on the scale next time. You've got this :)

    Thanks so much for the advice, I won't let that get me down now and will ignore it and carry on, suppose it will go up and down through through journey and that's fine

    @rawrxamberx You must be so proud this morning, Amber!! Look what happens when you put in the work!! Well done!!

    Thank you! I was very proud. I went over a few times last week but I drank more water. Ever since I downloaded a water app it’s helping me drink water! 😊 it reminds me every few hours to drink.
