    FULL-DISCLOSURE
    I have been quiet as I have been researching, as per my Psychiatrist at our last session, Intuitive Eating. Going forward I will commit only weighing myself once a month as this method consists of getting away from "Diet Culture" and making peace with food (which I really need). This is a very scary process but going forward as God has not given us the spirit of fear, right. Anyway I thought you guys should know why I've been quiet

    TIP FOR THE WEEK:
    VITAMIN D

    As you know I've recently started going outside for at least 15 minutes a day just sitting in the sun and feel better for it

    So if there wasn't a loss - the spreadsheet doesn't count it so there aren't 3 "winners" for each category as there weren't 3 positive losses for each one in everything, FYI.

    Tracked: Yes

    Exercise: Yes, 68 minute walk outside
    Good day today, nice walk and tried a couple new recipes. I bought and used fennel for the first time. I made Tofu mayonnaise and then curry chicken salad(used some of the Mayo it, along with the fennel bulb). I put the stalks/stems of the fennel into chicken noodle soup for dinner tonight, then made a pesto with the fronds. Never really used/made pesto before so not sure what to use it with yet but didn’t want to throw the fronds away. I’ll figure something out, if anything can put in my eggs in the morning.


    My congregation had been playing it safe and only been holding meetings on zoom the last couple years. We started meeting in person again this month(zoom is still an option for those not comfortable) It’s been wonderful to see people in person again!
    I hadn’t seen most of them in person since before I started losing weight and have gotten so many compliments. There were a couple people that weren’t sure if they should say anything or not, but for me atleast, I don’t care. These are people I’m comfortable with and have known most of them for a really long time. Several people I’ve talked to have their own struggles with weight. While my main motivation is to improve my health, it’s still such a nice confidence boost and is a little extra motivation to keep up the hard work.

    Felt so blah this week thanks to hormones and yucky weather. Didn’t exercise and wasn’t under my calories Sun-Thur. Thursday I drove to Portland and saw Hamilton! It was so exciting to finally see it live, stopped and actually ate inside a restaurant for first time since COVID was a thing. Felt kinda strange but was nummy


    Saturday 04/16
    Tracked: Yes
    Under Calories: Yes
    Exercise: 40 minute walk, started raining so turned around before the hill, 25 minutes pt/strength training and then 51 minute walk(friend called wanting to see if I wanted to go for walk with her when I was in middle of using my weights, debated but ended up saying yes)



    User: KakoHikes
    Weigh in day: Sunday
    Week 3
    PW: 187.2
    CW: 186.6
    Am a bit surprised I still had a loss this week. Seems like I lose more after my period is over so might be due to that

    Nice loss and glad you got to get out and see Hamilton live.

    Sorry I was MiA for a couple of days. This year we were supposed to go up to ny for Christmas, but my older son got sick so we decided to go for Easter. While I love seeing my family and getting to taste the foods we really miss, I hate going back to NY. NC really is home now. I don’t miss NY at all. Only my family. My niece gets married fall of 2023 I think that might be the next time I go back

    Easter and getting ready for my daughter’s birthday & party has thrown me off track. Her party is tomorrow, so I’m expecting to leap right back into my fitness routine and stabilize my nutrition by Thursday
