    @more_freggies76 Happy (belated?) birthday!!!
    @Bex953172 Thanks for your comments. I'm a bit competitive, and it just bugs me that I didn't walk faster. But there's always next year! LOL

    • Post weekly weigh-in on MFP for accountability. Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I track daily on a separate app (for the visual). My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale.

    • Excellent goal previous years, to be continued
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states)

    I know it has been like forever since I've been on here! Its not that I don't want to .. just the days get away from me. And... to be truthful... to kickstart myself, I did find another website where I am tracking calories, and it has helped me. It is called "lose it", but what I like was that it was like a fresh start for me. It also keeps track of the calories for the entire week.. so if I've been bad one day... it will tell me what I do for the entire week. That has helped me tremendously in the "all or nothing" attitude that I always seem to have. And it has helped me to get back on track.
    I am only down about 10 pounds ... so I need to lose another 15 .. but I am back in "onderland" which feels good.
    Also, I think when I was last on here I told you I was having my heart checked because of getting shortness of breath. So I had a echo, and everything seemed OK. I do have a valve that leaks, but it has not gotten worse. But when doing that, I have a enlarged Aorta .. so all the more reason to lose weight.
    Hubby though also had tests, and he has a aorta aneuysym, so thats been stressful. He is seeing a vascular surgeon in 2 weeks. We hope it does not require surgery, as that is very risky surgery. Next week he sees his urologist... his psa numbers are not .88... and they said if they get to "1" then it would mean PET scans, etc to see if the cancer is back.
    So... thats about all thats been happening with me.
    But.. I am going to try and get back on here, at least once a week, and back to posting.
    My high school friends just left.. and even though we are all the same age, the difference in all of us is amazing. I am able to walk, get up and down, still garden, and do things. 2 of my friends can barely walk. One in particular is very overweight, has diabetes, and just has not taken care of herself. We went to the botanical gardens to see the Chiluly Glass display. She was so out of breath just getting to the front entrance. I pushed her in a wheelchair (which was not easy, as she is over 300#). So this made me vow even more to get my weight under control.

    So.. my goals for this week are to log my food each day, and try to end the week either on track, or below!
    To exercise at least 4x week... either at the gym, or get out walking.
    To get back on here, at least once a week.. to check in and be accountable
    Weight as of today: 198.6. Next week my goal is to be at 196.6.

    I will HA.. attempt.. to read all that I have missed.. but its like 52 pages!!

    I hope you are all doing OK.. still hanging in there to get healthy! As we age, its more about health than anything. Yes, I want to look nice in my clothes, but seeing my friends, especially the one that is so overweight, so out of breath, can't go up stairs (she even has a handicapped car tag because she can't walk). I am 6 months older than she is, but the difference is so great. Taking care of our health, for those reasons alone, are so worth it!

    You don't know how good it is to hear from you!

    Glad you found another app to kick start your journey again! It's nice to have something new to focus on so I get where you're coming from

    And ONLY 10 lbs? Only?!
    What do you mean "Only"?!
    That's amazing, you've done really well and you should be proud x

    Good morning! So on my weekend trip to my sister's house for her daughter's graduation, something happened that has never happened before...I stayed totally on plan!! I didn't even intend to, I told myself I'd just eat moderately but not try to stay on this fasting thing I have going on because it would be too hard. And then I just went ahead and did it anyway!! I feel like there should be an award ceremony for me this morning :D . I mean truth be told the food wasn't anything great - hotdogs and hamburgers and a lot of store-bought sides I don't care for liked baked beans and egg/potato salad (although she did have a big bowl of my favorite chips I gave a wide berth) but I sort of expected her to put out some kind of garden salad and she had said she'd be grilling lots of different meat, so that was my plan for dinner. I had brought a few meals from home that got me through the rest of the weekend, but I didn't want to make a big scene at the party scrounging in her fridge to make something healthy...so I just at a plate of the veggie/fruit platter once the other guests moved onto the main meal stuff. No cake or ice cream (though I did steal one of her greek yogurts from the fridge & put a little chocolate sauce on that. perfect!) No alcohol was offered so that solved that temptation! And I stayed on track the rest of the weekend after coming home. And as my reward I weighed myself yesterday, and exactly one week after starting this Fast 800 I am down 10 pounds!!! Yes, at least half of that is water whoosh but I have never had a whoosh that big ever in my life!! So it will be interesting to see what week 2 brings...but I am MOTIVATED for sure!!!!

    JFT:
    don't eat till 1pm
    stay within calories

    Well, I'm not going to lie. I've spent a couple months being flaky and not fully tracking. I let stress and business take over.... now my fasting blood sugar is high again and I put 10 lbs back on. What is wrong with me???? After all that hard work. Ugh! So, if you don't see me post for a few days please feel free to reach out and kick me in the butt. Seriously!

    That said, I'm going back through some of my own blog posts and recipes hoping to remind myself of all the things I really like and have made in the past few years. Sometimes just looking at photos of how far I've come and foods I forgot about over time will help me get in gear. I did my newest blog recipe post this morning and it was so good. That is the kind of thing I need to keep looking at and remembering. That salad doesn't have to be boring. That heavier dishes can be revamped. That I do enjoy making and creating healthier stuff. I just need to get my head back in the game.

    If anyone wants the newest recipe though, I made Esquites - Mexican Corn Salad and it is pretty darn tasty if I say so myself.
