    @nikkit321

    Maybe try some of that Konjac, often under the brand name of NuPasta.
    I quite like it. It doesn't have a whole lot of flavour, but it a good vessel for what I normally would put on pasta

    Yes, some gluten free stuff either doesn't taste good or is full of sugar.

    My name is Tina, Height: 5'6" Age: 54
    MFP starting weight: 149.2 (3/30/21)
    April results: -0.6
    April end weight: 136.0
    UGW: 130

    05/01 - DNW - out of town, no scale. Tomorrow will be my start weight for May.
    05/02 - 135.6 (136.9 trend) first weekend in a long time that I did not gain weight!
    05/03 - DNW - day off from work and woke up late. Like to weigh at same time every day.
    05/04 - 135.2 (136.5 trend)
    05/05 - 135.0 (136.3 trend) palate apparatus is wreaking havoc. I have a nice sore on my tongue that won't go away so it is slowing my eating down a bit. Hoping it heals soon. A little upset at the orthodontist office for not being completely truthful. They claimed this would just be "uncomfortable" until I became accustomed to it in a few days. Nothing about sores and pain. Oh well, this too shall pass
    05/06 - 135.8 (136.2 trend) Pizza last night. I always gain a bit after pizza and it just doesn't seem fair this time. I could not eat the crust, so all I had was the toppings off two pieces. Really thought it would make a difference. I was wrong. Lesson learned. Of course the free biscuits and gravy at work for breakfast probably played into that gain as well :D Couldn't pass up soft food that was free!
    05/07 - DNW
    05/08 - DNW - Hope all you Mother's had a wonderful day.
    05/09 - 137.0 (136.5 trend) Unfortunately found a lot of food I could comfortably eat. Need to start being mindful again and should really start logging my food. Surgery will probably slow me down again, but I have a few weeks till that occurs.
    05/10 - 136.2 (136.4 trend)
    05/11 - 135.4 (136.3 trend) YAY! Back to a loss for the month. Hoping to keep this up and reach my goal
    05/12 - 135.0 (136.1 trend) starting to log again today
    05/13 - 133.2 (135.7 trend) Not sure I'm believing this. Will wait until tomorrows weigh in to see.
    05/14 - 133.6 (135.4 trend) I'll take it
    05/15 - 134.2 (135.3 trend)
    05/16 - 135.2 (135.3 trend) too much sodium over the past couple of days. Need to be more careful
    05/17 - DNW - had a craving for a Big Mac and fries and gave in. Was afraid to step on scales
    05/18 - 134.0 (135.0 trend) very surprised
    05/19 - 133.2 (134.7 trend) I thought for sure that the scale would go up after the heaping bowl of mashed potatoes I had for lunch yesterday. Very happy they didn't :)
    05/20 - 133.4 (134.5 trend) thought for sure I posted this already this morning, but I guess not.
    05/21 - DNW
    05/22 - DNW
    05/23 - 134.4 (134.5 trend)
    05/24 - 133.6 (134.4 trend) should be able to drop a little more by the end of the month. If so, it will be the first month in a while that I met goal. Surgery tomorrow is at 5:30 am, so I will not be weighing in until Thursday
    05/25 - Surgery
    05/26 - 134.0 (134.3 trend) surgery #1 done. I think the weight gain is from the swelling. The whole lower half of my face is stretched to capacity. Meals are consisting of protein drinks, pudding, applesauce and mashed potatoes.
    05/27 - 133.6 (134.2 trend)
    05/28 - 131.6 (133.8 trend)
    05/29 - DNW
    05/30 - DNW
    05/31 -

    May goal weight: 133
    Running loss/gain for month: -4.0

    I am Dawn, 61, 5'2"
    I am in Southeastern BC, Canada
    Top weight: 207 pounds. MFP start weight 191 pounds, October 2018
    UGW 110-118
    I love the accountability of this forum : - )
    Tracking every bite is the key to success.

    May 01 - Going with my April end weight as I did for the last month. 135.0
    Monday May 02 - 136.8 - Ouch. Feeling leaner than that. Back to jumping around all over the place. My WW scale gave up the ghost months ago, and this new one...not sure if it really works. Very active days off, time for healthy food prep and eating. I truly expected a loss.
    May 03 - 135.6 - That is better.
    May 04 - 135.8 - Busy week, trying to have food prep ready for each dinner.
    May 05 - 137.0 - No reason for this at all. I burned more calories than I ate actually (due to long hours digging in the garden after work knowing that there would be rain to set the seeds today). I did drink more water yesterday, otherwise ate very well, worked out etc. I hate these jump ups.
    May 06 - 136.4 - I have had maybe too active of a week? Perhaps my body thinks that it must hold on to fat to save me lol. We got lovely rain yesterday to set my seeds into my garden : - )
    May 07 - 135.4 - All of that digging finally catching up on the scale? I'll take it.
    May 08 - 136.2 - Working late tonight, so it will be a late dinner.
    May 09 - 136.6 - I worked much later than even expected last night, so ate very late and was up too early. Not surprised that my weight is up today, and it might take a few days to level myself back out and settle into a rare 6 day work week.
    May 10 - 136.0
    May 11 - 135.2 - That is better, getting closer to my start weight. I was feeling lean yesterday, glad that the scale agrees.
    May 12 - 137.2 - Dang!!! 2 pounds in one day? argh
    May 13 - 137.2 - Struggling with my motivation today because of this number. I will have to give myself a good talking to.
    May 14 - 138.8 - double ouch. So happy to have a day off, I had only one last week and then worked 6 in a row with both jobs including getting up very early and working very late. I was truly exhausted, and the late dinners seem to affect my weight. No choice on the dinner front when I work so late. Going to try to refuse any of those next week. Lol, today will be catching up on laundry and all of the stuff that I couldn't get to. Hoping to get out for a nice hike if the weather holds, and a bunch of little workouts here and there.
    May 15 - 137.4 - Planning a very active day off today: workouts, a hike, cutting the grass.
    May 16 - 137.6 - I am going out to a comedy show tonight, so will try to keep my dinner when I get home small.
    May 17 - 136.6 - Hmmm. I thought that it would be the other way around after being up late and then getting up early. Good laughs maybe released some fat?
    Wednesday May 18 - 137.6 - Big calorie burn day, after work I went hard in the garden until almost dark, then had a late dinner. Today might be the same.
    May 19 - 139.0
    May 20 - 139.6 - Not sure what is going on with me. Of course not happy about the extra pounds on the scale.
    Leaving on a mini holiday right after work today. I will be taking my scale with me but am not sure if I will find time for the forums for a few days. I am packing food to take. Eating out is something that I will avoid except for coffee in cafes. 90% rain in the forecast so I don't know if I will get any hiking in, but will definitely be going to the parade, the street fair, the farmer's market, the midway etc. I will get workouts in on my phone or laptop in my motel and a bit of walking around the Blossom Festival and Rodeo grounds.
    May 21 - The scale that I took with me either doesn't work right or did not like the floor in the motel. 48 pounds lol
    May 22 - I ordered a new scale online which will arrive late this week. The scale said 176.8 which I know is not true
    May 23 - 138.8. Back home with the scale back to where it used to be. Very healthy eating for my time away (I had a microwave, refrigerator and a coffee maker in the motel) and lots of activity. I will believe this scale until I get my new one, a WW which is what I had before the current one, it will be a portable one.
    May 24 - 136.2 - I am okay with that. 8 days until the end of the month, the push is on to at least weigh the same as the start of the month. Slightly less would be better, but I never lose that quickly.
    May 25 - 136.4 - I don't seem to weigh at the same time each day. It was earlier today, so I don't think that I really gained any weight yesterday. Staying on track.
    May 26 - 136.0 - Burning lots of calories after work each day getting the rest of my garden tilled and planted. Hoping to finish it all up by Sunday. Holding off on cutting the grass, priorities will be to get stuff planted.
    May 27 - 136.9 - This is the new scale. 0.8 higher side to side than the scale that was going wonky when I traveled, but I will trust this new one. So I am slightly heavier, but that is okay. I feel like I can trust this new scale.
    May 28 - 138.3 - I had Ribs last night. So yummy. I expect to gain 3 pounds each time that I have them, so I am glad that it was less than that. Hopefully just a temporary gain. 3 days left of this month!
    May 29 - 138.1 - I am thinking that I won't be able to get to my start weight of this month. Back to the drawing board for June. June already?
    May 30 - 137.7 - I only touched the 135s a few time this month. Glad to see that I am down 0.6 from since my Ribfest though.
    May 31 - 137.7 - So rare that I get the same weight 2 days in a row. Going to say that Ribs have lodged now and I will work hard to blast that. No more Ribs for me until August.

    May start weight - 135.0
    May goal weight - 133.0
    May actual end weight - 137.7

    Gain of 2.7 for the month : - (

However, I got about 3 hours of extra sleep last night after dosing off early. My fitbit shows it was quality sleep too! Wow, I feel so refreshed! A friend from downstate that moved away stopped in to visit yesterday and is trying to do a few things to further my kitchen along. He doesn’t live here so it won’t be a completed project but anything helps! It’s a start! He was back this morning to help. He is my old handyman so I know is good work ethic. He can use the money and I can use the help so this is great. I’m hoping he can make some trips up and get me out of this jam in the coming weeks. We shall see. Feeling full of joy today!

    05/31.…..203.4…..(Trend Weight 203.6)…… A little bit better yesterday but movement could have improved. It was 91 degrees (no air conditioning) and just too uncomfortable to do much. Today is scheduled for 91 also. A scortcher!

    Hello there Accountability friends! I am going to eat healthy food with a total of 1200 calories per day as I want to reach my weight goal of 57 kilos. I am 68.6 kg at the moment.
