    Frustrating to say the least ...You think you are doing everything right . I measure everything I eat ..I do portion control etc and yet I gain

    This could also just be an anomaly. Give it a few more weeks to see what happens with your weight. Then you may have to make adjustments. I know you can do this. Also, be gentle on yourself. I believe chronic pain affects so many areas of our lives. I know I do a lot less on the bad days especially if I have a bad sleep. You are probably the same. Push forward and have faith. Also, for now just do some gentle stretches until you can exercise. You can find stretches you can do on the bed before you get up in the morning on google or Pinterest.

    Motto: 🏋🏾‍♀️ Don't think, just do it!!

    Recap: Today was a tough gym day. Still battling a cold that is bad enough to make me feel "meh", but not classify as "sick"...It was a tough 30 minutes on the treadmill but I did it!

    - THOUGHTS: . I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m DONE!

    So true this morning. Luckily it was a lighter day but I still committed to 30 minutes on the treadmill. I was tired at 10 and ready to quit at 20....but, I wasn't done! :)

    Let me know if the ST minutes add anything significant. If they don't, then I won't bother...🙂

    Awesome loss! I am impressed you exercised when not feeling the greatest. It is so easy to do nothing on those days. Feel better. ❤️‍🩹

    Is there something you really want to get for yourself? Try working on having a healthy afternoon snack. Give yourself a goal ie: healthy snack 6/7 days for a month. Once you reach your goal get that non food reward. I did something like that to get my chip intake under control.

    Steps: 13,346
    Rings: ✔️
    Walk: 1/3
    Swim: 1/2

    To make a long story short, I am unable to go to the pool. It is good that I can’t good in away as the water is cold again. Not as bad as it was earlier this month but uncomfortable. I am doing mini walks today. I am setting timers to make sure I reach my step goal and close my rings.

    NSV: I went to buy some pants yesterday. I actually bought a pair that are not yoga pants. I also have dropped a size in pants.

    Have a great Saturday!

    Question:

    What are your weekend exercise plans?

    I got my regular "Saturday" workout in of legs and arms then 10 minutes on the bike and 25 minute on the treadmill. Started with 10 minute of stretching and core exercises.

    Sunday I save for my day of rest (after 6 days of exercise)....however I may do a short youtube routine just to get some steps in.

    Motto: 🏋🏾‍♀️ Don't think, just do it!!

    Recap: Saturday....I normally try to sleep in, which means 6am vs 5am, but I was awake. A little slow moving though, which was fine! I got it in, 80 minutes total.

    I straighten up a bit, in the process of doing laundry and having coffee while I checking in on MFP. Football on tap for this afternoon/evening. Life is good🙂


    - THOUGHTS: Nothing tastes as good as being thin healthy feels!

    I don't care about being thin, I care about being healthy. I'm on meds for High Blood Pressure and have been for years. How nice would it be to eliminate those pills! A lot of my stats are in the unhealthy range (red)... I want to see them in green!!

    If you'd like to provide the "factor" for ST, I can do the math so you don't have to.

    Linda,

    My goal weight is 140- I'm short so the top of the ideal range for me is 141 pounds. I want to give myself a 5 pound buffer, so shooting for 135 - 26 more pounds. My tracker says I should get there by August (I shoot for .5% a week). Slowly but surely, I will get there.

    Thanks for the suggestion Linda. Initially I was rewarding with every 10 pounds down. Then as the weight was dropping super slow I was rewarding 5 pounds. Now that I’ve been gaining I was debating if it was cheating by rewarding for re-losing the same pounds or do I wait until I’m back down to where I was? I really do like your idea of rewarding for habit changes and non scale victories. Now to think about which habits I want to change and what to use for rewards.
