    Successes/struggles of the week: Successes are that I have been consistent with my exercise this week getting all my Apple Watch rings closed every day. Struggles are that I’m still eating at the very top of my calorie count, including eating back exercise calories. Some days it’s not very balanced in terms of macros (i.e. way over in carbs and fats).

    Successes & Struggles
    1. Eating new & healthier foods: more oatmeal, 1T flaxseed going to 2T soon, added a low sodium lentil soup, quinoa/chickpea salad, veggies w/hummus, successfully whacked down Sat fat.
    2. Increased my daily steps
    3. Added non-walking/hiking exercise such as stretches, band work, lt weights each day
    4. Back in normal BMI
    5. Now to get back “in the 150’s” this month or sometime in January.t
    6. Sleeping much, much better

    Struggles
    New awareness of my health issues has made me a bit stressed. Decided to face it with the help of a therapist. First time in a long, long time, but I keep
    telling myself “it’s okay to ask for help when you need it”
    Maddie 💕

    IT’s WORTH THE FIGHT.

    I'm away on holiday, no scales. I fear I will gain a couple of kg this time. We're at an all-inclusive hotel, and I'm giving in to temptation too much. On the positive side, I'm not snacking between meals and I'm not drinking calories. Water and coffee (black) are almost the only beverages passing my lips. I'm swimming and walking every day.

    Successes
    • Planned trend towards lower end of current weight range as festive season approaches. 3lbs down 👌🏻
    • Preplanning food for the day ahead
    • Healthy snacks factored into calorie budget
    • Solid Habits development
    • Maintaining mindful focus on health and fitness
    • Cutting myself some slack on the daily ups and downs of weight.
    • Finding enjoyable ways to move. If you don’t enjoy it, then it’s difficult to motivate yourself
    Struggles
    • Old habits. One needs to be constantly mindful that old habits have laid down nueral pathways in the brain, so new habits need to be reinforced to combat this.

    Success of the week: After a long period of being an "inactive" member of my gym, I went back and paid full dues and swam a couple days. Weight is up a fair bit from the end of November, but still in maintenance, and just bouncing up and down like it's supposed to.

    Struggle of the week: Darkness. We won't even see the DARKEST day for another ten days, but we only have four minutes and one second more daylight than that; today we get 8:53:11. I will probably write about this again next week. But here's the catch; this year has actually been better than any I've experienced in a long time. It might be as simple as being able to go outside for a walk any time I want. It might just be reduced stress in other areas of my life. I have another theory, too. Whatever the reason, it's actually a success that tempers the struggle!

    Successes/struggles of the week: My average weight was way up, due to a combination of factors - TOM, and planned surplus week as it was my birthday week and I was eating out pretty much every day. Will be getting back on track the next couple of weeks, cooking more and eating healthier to try to get rid of some of this extra weight.

    • Maintaining mindful focus on health and fitness
    • Cutting myself some slack on the daily ups and downs of weight.
    • Finding enjoyable ways to move. If you don’t enjoy it, then it’s difficult to motivate yourself
    Struggles
    • I’ve been suffering with Covid for a week. Finally tested positive yesterday (Wed 15).

    Successes/struggles of the week: I feel like I’m back in the not too distant “old days” where I’m committed to doing all the right things for my weight and health for a couple of days, and them I’m not for a couple of days. So far I haven’t gone off the rails for and extended amount of time, but I do see my overall trend weight slowly creeping up.

    Success of the week: Made it almost to Solstice. Just three more days until the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Where I live, the daylight difference from now to then is a mere twenty seconds. There's still a long winter ahead, but brighter times will return before the next update here!

    Struggle of the week: I bounced back up out of my maintenance range and pretty much back to where I was before I got sick. I'm still a fair bit below my average weight from October though, so not all is lost.

    @TerriRichardson112

    Get well soon. If not soon, get well when you can. Give yourself permission to just use your limited energy to get healthy. If you can't eat and lose weight, you'll get it back when you are healthy again.

    Successes & Struggles
    Exercising a bit less & eating a bit more. Mostly caused by concern around chest discomfort & other symptoms. Google may have finally come through for me:
    My super fibrous meals may be causing some esophageal issues. Checking with docs.

    IT’s WORTH THE FIGHT.

    My additional labs were all perfect last week. What I eat matters. Yay!

    Dec 5th: away on holiday
    Dec 12th: 52.4 kg (trend 51.6 kg)
    Dec 19th: 51.3 kg (trend 51.5 kg)
    Dec 26th:

    Successes: I weighed in at 50.8 kg on Saturday morning. Holiday weight gain dropping off.

    Struggles: Spent a lot of time sitting over the weekend – weight up this morning. Saturday was a theatre visit with my daughter - 2 hour drive from my house to hers, quick lunch, drive to pick up the kids from their dad's, drive to the theatre, sit in the theatre for over 2 hours, drive to friends house for quick visit (mulled wine and mince pie), drive to restaurant for dinner, drive back to daughters’ - less than 6,000 steps that day.

    Sunday I drove home - I left my daughter’s at 10 am to drive home, which should have taken less than 2 hours. But 80 minutes later I’m at a standstill on the motorway. It then took over 2 hours to cover the next 1.5 miles. Sad, really, it appears there was a “welfare incident” (a jumper on a bridge) and obviously the road was closed. The diversion that was set up didn’t work very well. So, I finally got home just before 2 pm.
    I did get some exercise done in the afternoon – two 10-minute routines and some general warm-up and stretching – but my step count was less than 8,000.

    PS - the jumper was talked down. Suicide averted. Good news.

    Why should I complain about a 2 hour delay when there are people in such distress?
