    Sorry team, no loss this week. My excuse is that I'm weighing myself 2 days early as going to France tomorrow 😆

    And here's what (in my opinion) contributed to this gain:
    Last Thursday my left foot started to feel numb. Moving or massaging it did not help and it's been feeling numb/asleep for over a week. I turned to google and found out that it's a typical symptom of multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and other, equally optimistic conditions. I freaked out, got scared, started comforting myself with ... food. Of course!

    Then we had this thing called Open House at work, on Wednesday. First time ever. Quite a big deal considering who was coming. Saying that it's been pretty stressful is a serious understatement. And to make literally everything worse, heat wave reached us on Monday - and yes, it is still very much with us. That open house was mainly outside because of covid. At 98F. More stress = more eating.

    Family disturbances like a need to find a new piano teacher for my daughter (her current teacher decided to go back to Japan) and my teenage son in love thus coming back from dates way too late for his mother's liking (I can't fall asleep until he's back home!) - piece of cake! Right?!

    There's been some other minor issues not even worth mentioning but they all add up...
    I stopped checking the weight until this morning. I expected it to be worse.

    I did not neglect my foot. I saw a doctor yesterday. He excluded multiple sclerosis and diabetes right away as well as neurological reasons. (I was so relieved to learn that, that I ate a bar of white chocolate upon returning home.)
    I am to see a vascular surgeon but there's a long wait time.
    They also tested my blood - lab results show vit B12 deficiency. I already started taking a supplement.

    So here's where I am. Today, with worst-case scenarios out of my head, I've been doing pretty well regarding eating. I am right at my MFP calorie limit and hope not to eat anymore today. I really really hope taking B12 vit supplement helps and this is just vitamin deficiency, not anything more serious.

    Ooff. So, the last two weeks have been total insanity. The conference was great. I hiked so much.

    The upgrade was fine...we're still adjusting. My big presentation went really well. Apparently, my director has been getting calls all week about how great it was. And it has been non-stop.

    I went to the botanical gardens today to decompress. The weather was lovely. The crazy number of people, not so much. It is a botanical garden, not a playground. Many gorgeous flowers, a couple butterflies.
