    Good evening all. Ready for the work week?
    Check in:
    Steps - 3513. Stayed home waiting to see if daughter wanted to do the gym or walk.
    Calories - 2676. Way to much food today.
    Exercise - none. Daughter wanted to relax. I got lazy and didn't go out alone.

    @fatfifties you lost 65lbs in a year! That is fantastic and for those of us who are on similar journeys, we know the dedication and effort you put into that. It is certainly a call for celebration. Don’t demotivate yourself, you went to that party rightfully feeling proud of yourself. Next year you’ll attend and have even more to celebrate. Your knocking on the door to One-derland, you go girl!

    Thank you. Picked myself back up, have a week visiting my mum in the UK at the end of August then look out September! I'm joining the step challenge and losing 21lb before Xmas!

    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?

    Yes, i used to work night shifts and found that i was ravenously hungry, was picking all night at the wrong foods mostly. Apparently its hormonal, so when your tired your stomach releases more ghrelin which tells your brain your starving and at the same time you release less leptin (the hormone that lets you know when your full up). You can get round it by eating more protein and wholegrains

    I think I'm a little over exhausted!! I believe I posted my weight for last week. It was the same as the previous week.

    Let me know the correct number and I will make the change in the spreadsheet.

    Nice loss!

    @JaysFan82
    Mixing things up is a good way to get things moving.

    @IP2021
    Great stepping. Did you do anything in particular to make sure you reach your step goal each day?

    @gharvey2753
    Great job on the food prep. It’s not something I really do but I sure wish I had thought about it when the kids were young and I was working.

    @rwillems
    Fantastic loss! Any goals you concentrated on this week to help with your weight loss?

    @fatfifties
    That’s the way to get things done. Make a solid plan.

    Saturday: 5,283

    It felt so good to go to bed at my normal time last night. It took awhile to fall asleep but that was a combination of late nights three days in a row and having a long nap yesterday. I figured I will be recovered from the weekend just in time to take care of both my grandkids overnight on Friday. When did I get old? 😂 Hopefully, the poor eating from the weekend will not reflect on the scales this week.

    Great stepping. Did you do anything in particular to make sure you reach your step goal each day?.

    I actually set some hourly targets, which I tried to stick to.

    For example:
    1000 steps by 1pm
    2000 steps by 2pm
    3000 steps by 3pm
    etc, etc

    Some days my step goal worked all the way to 10pm 😊 and other days I stopped a little earlier, but of course only after I at least reached my step goal of 7000 🤗

    That is a great idea.
