    Starting to develop Runners Knee in my left.knee. I've worn a Patella Stabilizer on my right knee for 20 years. Looks like I'm moving right into middle age with my double knee braces haha. I feel fine while I run but walking upstairs is becoming painful.

    Hello All:

    It has been a really rough few days. After we returned from our planned trip, I got the news that my niece had had a catastrophic and life threatening/changing accident. I immediately got on a flight to WA from AK, to spend time with my brother and nephew. I got home last night, and we are preparing for our planned trip this week. I think I'll have to make a side trip back to WA, depending on how things go.

    My niece had an abscess that extended from her neck to the middle of her spine. She also has another abscess in her chest. They operated on the one in her back so far. Ugh. So very unfortunate, as she has a teenage daughter. There is so much damage that it is hard to know what her prognosis will be in the long run.

    @lindamtuck2018. Will you put me on the support list. I will weigh in if I can this week (10/28). My plans for the next few weeks are up in the air. Lee

    I am so very sorry to hear this. I have some very special nieces myself. Wishing for your niece to heal soon from this tragedy

    @363days
    Congrats on the loss and reaching a new decade.

    @IP2021
    Great loss! I hope you start feeling better soon.

    @JaysFan82
    You are doing so well with your weight loss!

    @28Haveitall2020
    I understand binge eating. It’s hard to break the cycle. I know with me stress and lack of sleep affect me the most. Do you have anything in particular that triggers the binge eating?

    @fatfifties
    Swimming in the rain sounds nice to me but I am weird. I used to love walking in the rain. What type of weather are you experiencing now and what is the temperature of the pool?

    Hi Linda.

    Yes tiredness. When I am.very tired I do binge. I know I am tired and sleep will help but my brain tells me something else.

    Losing weight is such a mind game!

    Sharing my thoughts to add clarity to my decisions!

    I m travelling in my rv, 'went home early October having lost another 10lb ... wore fitted clothes for the first time and people suddenly noticed my 80lb weight loss. Was a great feeling but majority of friends said .. brilliant but you don't need to lose more!

    They planted a seed.

    Octobers been frustrating ... exercising more than ever, eating right, but my weight loss is stalling. Demotivation has led to a 2 day mega binge :( I really thought I'd conquered my binging. So I'm up 4lb today. ( I know its probably carb water) but the number on the scales rules my life!

    And I recognise that RIGHT NOW is my big decision moment
    At this exact point I know I have 2 choices

    1. Carry on eating excessively ... see you back at 300lb in 18 months time! Like the previous 6 times I've lost loads of weight
    Or
    2. Get back on it. Overcome the food demons. Find the strength to lose that extra 21lb. Reach the weight I've dreamt of being. Implement my maintenance plan. Never get fat again!
    Tune in tomorrow for my decision!!!

    I've been under a serious amount of stress. Considering quitting my job. I've been miserable the past couple of months. I'm sure my cortisol is through the roof and not letting me lose any weight. :'(

    Sorry your dealing with so much stress.

    Ouch! The joys of getting older. Losing weight is the best thing you can do for your knees. I believe for every pound lost removes 4 pounds of pressure on your knees.

    Your calories are good for two meals out. We went out for cheap wings last night and the calories were outrageous.

    I hope you make decision number two. In the last 2 weeks you lost just over three pounds. Healthy weight loss is between 1 to 2 pounds a week. You are losing weight at a very healthy rate of loss. Look at your binge as a slip. One of the best things I have learned is I need to be able to forgive myself when I slip and binge. I know you can overcome your food demons.

    I am going to pass on the pool today. I am feeling my back and I may have pushed it too much yesterday. At least I completed my October badge.

    I bet you are so right. Even though I've heard of the power of cortisol, I think I'm just start
    ing to understand it. It is crazy how we are carrying stress in our bodies and I never even knew that.

    Lee, I am so sorry to hear about this, this is crushing. Having a brother who is currently experiencing an absess in his spine, I know that finding out what is going on, the cause of the abcess, prognosis, etc is a multi-layered situation. Your niece must have been in tremendous pain! Prayers for all of the family.

    If you are like me, I always find a great reason to binge - I love your logic in weighing out your choices. It is great to meet a fellow RV'er. In what part of the country do you live? I'm in Oklahoma and travel mainly to CO and NM. I noticed on my last local trip that I had the feeling I was literally going to STARVE while camping. I had some food, but it wasn't what I liked, and because I did not bring junk food, I felt so deprived. It was a lesson in mental awareness for me. I think I need a little junk food every day, in order to stop the binge. Another thing that helps me with binging is to eat foods that REALLY make me full I'd love to hear what you have found that works for you. I've also noticed that I may never quit binging, but if I can binge on things that aren't quite so bad for me, that is an improvement.
