    I know, I had a terrible gain this week. I had a binge Tuesday night. I was dealing with a bit of a stressful situation Monday and Tuesday. Unfortunately, I dealt with it through food. I ate a lot of carbs so I am still bloated today.

    NSV: I looked up my blood test results. My A1C was 5.8 which is in the non diabetic range. I know my doctor is going to be pleased with me on Tuesday. No more binge eating as I want to keep it like this.

    Hang in there, life happens, im sure that will be gone by next week, your always so good x

    Hope everyone is doing well. Hubs had an ankle replacement yesterday, so I might miss a post here and there. The surgery went really well. He had a horrible sprain years ago. I think the hardest thing will be all the down time, as he is very active. Feeling very grateful. 😊

    Had a rough night of sleep last night. I'm still coughing post-covid. My hubby is now in the throws of a cold, allergies, or maybe just rebound post covid yuck. Anyway he had a coughing fit around 4 am. So I'm a little bleary eyed this morning.

    Summer can be hard for me. I love seasonal fruit baking. I'm dying to make my favorite peach cake. Or a german-style yeasted plum cake. In the past I'd take it into my office for folks to eat but I work from home 99% of the time now...

    Stay away from the baking pans. I find the fatigue and the chest congestion are still lingering. I will feel fine for a day or two and then I am right back on my puffers.

    Exercise is up, so is food. The result is that I'm stalled. I had good losses a few weeks ago, so this isn't a big surprise.

    Get the food down and 5he scale will move again. Great job getting your exercise numbers up.

    Amazing loss! Don’t sweat it (pun intended) if your weight rebounds a bit next week. It usually does after a loss from not feeling well for most people.

    Super tired today. I have new upstairs neighbours and they are very noisy. Sounds like a gorilla running around. I finally fell asleep after 1am. I want to skip the pool but I can’t. I don’t know if I will get there this weekend. Starting tonight I am staying with my 16 year old granddaughter while her parents and sister are away. She does have to go to cheer camp each day for a few hours so I might get home to do a swim. I am taking her to a movie Saturday night and she wants to eat out before the movie. Not worried about snacks at the movies as popcorn hurts my stomach but I ate out on Wednesday and we have three occasions coming up in the next two weeks. I just might skip our anniversary dinner this year.🤷‍♀️

    Have a great Friday!

    a couple high salt days with no exercise for half a week. Not to bad of a movement. Maybe 230 -235 is going to be my steady weight?

    I will move your higher end of maintenance to 235. We can make it lower later if needed.

    Losing the tummy is definitely hard. I think especially so after we have kids and hit 50.

    Good evening all.
    Check in:
    Steps - 8558.
    Calories - 2317. Still high salt but working it. I don't add any.
    Exercise - walk in middle afternoon. Muggy. 52 minutes. Went on the walk intending to get some yogurt. Went there and walked on past instead. Grabbed a nectarine when I got home and then decided against it since dinner was in 2 hours.

    Thanks for adjusting my range, @lindamtuck2018.

    Waiting for my husband to pick me up to go grocery shopping. Another late night last night so I am existing on not much sleep. Tomorrow night I am going to bed at my regular time. Not sleeping right has an impact on my food choices. I need to stick to my grocery list today and not make impulse buys because I am tired. Do you find not enough sleep affects your food decisions?
