    But no exercise. Went to visit in-laws which is a hour and half each way. But always worth the trip. Then stopped by my parents for a minute.

    Not everyone is blessed with in-laws they enjoy visiting! I like mine also 🥰 Have a great day ❤️😊

    @Tomsgal1985. That is wonderful!

    And your boys are very handsome, indeed.

    Thank you, Brandi! 🤗❤️

    True story. I'm driving 9 hours on Friday to see mine and dreading it. The only positive is I get to see some nieces this weekend also. 😞

    So sorry, Sue! Have a safe journey and enjoy your nieces. Prayers & hugs 🩷🙏🏻

    Saturday 20 May
    Track: no
    Under: I'm going with yes
    Exercise: oh yeah!! 🥵

    I didn't log lunch but I have over 1,000 calories left for the day so I think I'm ok here. After riding my Peloton, doing strength and stretching we went to Lowes. I loaded lumber into the car and back out of it at home. Then spent the next 3.5 hours ripping out the old garden boxes, dragging the old wood into the woods and building new garden boxes. My plants are much happier today, especially after the rain 🌧️ last night. I plan to do very little today. 😁

    Enjoy your Sunday everyone! 🥰

    Wow! Good for you, @DaffyGirl88!
    @JbeanR0212, a baby girl!! How exciting 💕🤗🙏🏻

    So, yesterday I went to a bridal shower for my nephew's fiancee. There was a lovely spread of food and goodies, so it was impossible to "log it" so I just enjoyed myself. I didn't go crazy, but the slice of cake alone with all of its icing was more decadence than I have had in awhile. I still had dinner when I got home because my husband and I had planned it ahead of time. Again, I didn't go crazy. The moment where I reverted back to my old ways of eating things I shouldn't when I am not really hungry was when I saw some pictures of myself on Face Book from the shower. I know I am not small, but I have been feeling much better about myself. Even when I went blouse shopping a couple weeks ago so I would have something to wear to this shower, I was still pulling out the big sizes to try on, but somehow it was okay because a) I was by myself and b) I told myself that this size was for now, not forever. However, I looked absolutely huge in one picture and it broke me a little. I think I will be okay today, as I haven't had anything but coffee so far and I have no desire to finish the cheese curds I got into last night. Maybe a little break was good.

    Big hugs! I can completely relate to seeing pics of myself. We’re in this together & we can do this ❤️❤️❤️

    This is the current list of people still involved with TBBT in some capacity. As Sue and I have stated before, we are committed to keeping this thread active. We have also talked about joining a Fat 2 Fit team to be part of an actual challenge group. I guess what we need, is to know everyone's decision on whether or not they are interested in joining a F2F team as a group. The moderator from F2F and I have been talking and trying to figure out the best way to do this and a head count is the first step!

    @HASWLRS Thank you again for running with this!! I just want to say a couple of things. 1. I don't want anyone to think that they HAVE to join as a group with the rest of us. If you feel like branching out on your own and meeting new people by all means go for it! And 2. I don't think we can stand up a new team on our own, a. we don't have enough people, and b. I cannot take on the role of captain so we'd need a volunteer. I make a great cheerleader but when it comes to keeping up with the paperwork I am woefully inadequate. :D

    I have to say I am on the fence about joining ATM. I haven't had a chance to research the teams and I'm not sure I have the bandwidth to add another MFP forum to my list.

    I am not able to take anything else on right now. I am here.. more lurking than active but here. I am struggling to keep up with this and GoT right now with all that is on my schedule and I thought a break from FT work would be better. But the honey do list that never got done seems to be my calling. Between drywall and painting and gutting and moving rooms around along with pressure cleaning outside and flower bed moving not to mention grass and tree trimming.. well thats the basics... lets add daily meals and prepped meals and a planning of a baby shower and moms care being readjusted. Thats just the me everyone sees... I cant seem to find the one I want to be... she is lost under all this other stuff.

    @DaffyGirl88
    I'm sorry for the dreadful trip.

    I'm realizing that you sure travel a lot!

    @brandi_84 That I do. That's what happens when you are former military, you end up far away from where you started. LOL Plus...both of my kids have moved out of state, my daughter (and grandbabies) live in VA and my son lives in Seattle. We try to visit the grandbabies at least once a month, and Seattle twice a year. Then Buffalo for the rest of the family as we have time. Means for a lot of time sitting in the car though. :(

    @sandkp We totally understand. I am glad that you are still here though, at least periodically. You do have a lot going on! Please be sure to find time to take care of yourself, however hard it might feel at times. <3

    Lisa (I think that’s your name from Sue’s helpful posts; so sorry I forget. My first name is Susan ❤️), I am terrible still about rising to the daily activities of a challenge, but I so enjoy checking in here on this thread. Once I get my eating straightened out again, I’d love to be more accountable, like in the F2F challenge you’re describing. So I will decline this time.

    Thank you for all you’re doing.
