    Are any of vegetable gardeners or canning people. I could use someone to commiserate with.
    I’m so over canning tomatoes this year. I was very fortunate to have a fantastic crop this year. I could donate some, and at the thought I can hear my mom in my head telling me I’ll thank myself come winter.
    Hot peppers have also been fantastic this year. I have 20 1liter jars of pickled peppers.
    The grapes for jelly are almost ready now too 😕
    I’m actually feeling a little glad it was a bad year for strawberries and blackberries.

    I noticed I am not listed on the sheet anymore on the support team. Just wanted to mention it. :smile:
    Happy Wednesday everyone <3

    Hey @pupowl ...when you come back to active, they'll pull you from the month in which you went to Support and place you back on active, but I will email the MODS and let them know. Don't worry, you haven't been dropped.

    Are you ready to return?

    The MODS just emailed me...she forgot to transfer everyone from Support Team August to Support Team September. You're back! Thanks for letting me know.

    9/14 15,770 I took a walk around the local golf course (4.3 miles). I think that helped up my steps.

    Here’s my weekly maintenance weigh-in report.

    Name: PatriceFitnessPal
    Weigh-in day: Thursday
    PW: 127.3
    CW: 127.3

    SW: 168
    LTD: 40.7

    My target range is 120-130 pounds, but I’d like to stay as close to 125 as possible since that’s about the middle of the “Healthy” BMI range for my height (just under 5’4 tall). Yesterday, the scale reading was a little lower (127.1) so I was hoping to get under 127 this week. Despite some minor fluctuation throughout the week, today’s reading was exactly the same as last week!

    I hope everyone is doing well. Best wishes in meeting your goals!

    Even my FEET have changed! (Weird, right?)

    I have my second lifestyle session tonight at 6:30.

    Cheers! (Carole)

    @CasandraW: You're doing GREAT! Maintaining is MUCH harder than losing and it's WAY (weigh) better (AND healthier) than riding the old "seesaw" all the time! Best wishes!

    Hiya all,eventhough we are on vacation my hubby insists on watching the football/soccer game on his mobile phone !
    So I'm sat enjoying a small glass of wine on our terrace.
    I'm glad you liked the kitten photos & of course @jessicakrall8 it was just for you !! Thank you @Walela617 for another new word in my Greek vocabulary.
    @Pupowl even though I'm late I wanted to say I'm sorry for the sad loss of your Aunt.
    @CasandraW gosh you've had a bumper crop this year.Im afraid I can't give any advice on canning but we'll done on producing your own veg.I feel the same way as you do at times & feel that this journey is a roller coaster.Give yourself credit on maintaining & don't beat yourself up too much when there is a slight gain.To have heathly goals & maintain good habits is a positive place to be in,so we'll done.@PatriceFitnessPal you've also done well to maintain even if it may be frustrating when the scales don't move.
    I am trying not to overeat & drink too much this holiday.I don't want to gain alot of weight like I did in June.Im pleased that I have managed to resist the choc croissants at breakfast & had fruit/ yoghurt instead.
    Thanks for all concerns about my back,I think it's getting a bit better but I still get twinges if I move in the wrong way.
    Walking helps alot so here are my steps

    I have another rambling thought for tonight.
    I was feeling defeated and mopey tonight what I reflected back on the year and realized that I haven’t really lost weight this year. I have pretty much maintained.
    Then I pulled up my socks and decided to dig a little deeper. I’ve been on My Fitness Pal since 2013 and this is the first year that I haven’t lost 20-30 lbs and then promptly regained it all. I have been loosing and regaining the same weight every year for almost 10 years. That’s nuts!!!
    This year has been about setting a proper foundation that’s based on health and sustainability. No crash diets or crazy exercise plans.
    Maintaining, as opposed to regaining, is still a big win. I've been in the 220's all year, and at times I've felt discouraged, but then I think to myself, "Even if I stay at this weight, I'm so much better off than I was two years ago. And not regaining the weight I've lost is a win."

    I'm almost back to where I was at this time last year and it was about this time last year when I started to gain a bunch of weight (between Sept and June when I peaked at 207).
