    @minstrelofsarcasm and @melaniedscott

    Can I please skip this weeks weigh in?

    I have celiac’s and was somehow glutened and I’m dealing with all the terrible side effects of that.

    Oh no! That's never fun. Please take care of yourself!

    I've been struggling with a head cold this week, and it's my time of the month, so I'm not surprised at all. Hopefully I'll be able to get a bigger number next week.

    My journey with weight:
    In 2017 I was at my highest weight of 233 or more. I had "tried" every "diet" under the sun. What I did not do was consider a lifestyle change. In 2017 I changed my thinking and said No to diet and yes to a lifestyle change. I have exercised since my 30's. I began gaining weigh towards mid 30's or late 30's. I never stopped working out hard. The thing I learned was I could not exercise and lose without beginning to truly look at what and how I ate. In 2017 I tried the Whole 30 and lost my first twenty pounds. I was keeping my carbs at less than 120 with whole 30. At that time one of my sons was doing keto he encouraged me to try it. Over the course of a year, I dropped down to 160 with keto and tracking my progress faithfully in MFP. Then in 2019 the pandemic hit, and I made the decision to give up my gym and workout partners. I also quit tracking anything in MFP. So of course, my weight has blossomed to the 180's go figure. Three or four months ago some of my beloved friends and I began texting and encouraging each other. Misty being the one who brought three of us to this challenge which has been a game changer for me. Thank you, my beloved friend Misty1!! So, when we began texting, I came to the realization (DUH) that of course I gained because I was clueless about what I was consuming. I began tracking the good, the bad, and the ugly. I would begin each week with full intention of cutting carbs and not eating when I was stressed. I am a nurse and I come home stressed a lot some days worse than others. And I would just sabotage myself time and time again. With this challenge I opened up my diary for my own personal accountability. I am not yet Strick keto I am working my way back into it trying to cut carbs between 50 to 60. This week I am so proud of myself because I have stayed on track. One day this week I truly wanted to just throw in the towel and eat. The accountability of this challenge has been exactly what I needed. Thank you, Misty, thank you for the powers that be that created this challenge. I am very grateful to you!!!!

    I'm excited because I've worked out for 6 hrs this week...and it's been amazing. I've had a blast...a little sore, but happy, energized, and feeling very happy and positive. I haven't lost a bit of weight, but I believe it's temporary. I know in the long-term, the weight will come off. I'm proud of myself for carving out time for me!

    I totally forgot to weigh yesterday. I am positive that number is wrong. I did eat junk this week after my horrible Monday but not that much junk. i have some ideas but I won't share (TMI).

    We've completed another week, folks! And with some awesome numbers up on the spreadsheet, we've set ourselves up to have a successful month. Can we do it again next week? Can we do even better?

    Take a look at last week's results in the links below:

    Here's a sneak peek into how your (our!) team did...

    My steps were horrible last week. I didnt exercise at all. I didnt do that bad with my food. Never got 10,000 steps at all. I have to change that this week. I did get to zumba today but she is cancelling next weeks class so I will do something else in its place. It's a nice day here, I'm hoping the weather keeps getting nicer. My granddaughters are off practicing riding their bikes and scooters today.
