    3 weeks of losses in a row may have been too much to hope for but .2 lbs is a rounding error in my book so I'll take that as a wash and see if I can get down to that 240 - 241 range next Friday.

    I’m gonna drop out of the step challenge. I’m not meeting my goal and rather than motivate me, it’s just making me like a failure and I definitely do not need to harbor that feeling. Thank you!

    I am sorry you are dropping out ... like Linda said you can lower your goal ... I can also just excuse you ... let me know what you want to do ..Thanks

    Very sorry to see you go. I can certainly understand, but just remember, put one foot in front of the other. Time is going to pass no matter what you are doing. Make walking fun by setting a goal, such as a destination. You don’t have to walk a mile every time. Sometimes I walk to the bus stop, and it only takes me 10 minutes, but it is like 1000 steps. If I walk to the bus stop 2 times a day, that’s like 4,000 steps round trip. I do t k ow how, but I did over 23k steps yesterday. I caught the bus several times yesterday and I think I walked everywhere. I walked to the gym, then I walked to an AA meeting. Then I walked to the credit union, then to Walmart, then back home. Later I walked to the bus stop a few times. I got home last nite at 10:30 pm. I was exhausted, but I felt really proud of myself. Total sense of accomplishment. Did I set out to do 23k steps? Hell no! I typically average 10k steps/day.

    Maybe you need to feel the shame, but don’t let it weigh you down and keep you from achieving greatness. Battle past the negative feelings, and get on with the fast realizations, the underlying dreams.

    Not thrilled but I think I know why. Three or four nights I had about a cup and a half of frozen grapes at night after dinner and we had two meals out this week. Even though I tried to order wisely, that hidden sodium and unknown calories gets me every time. Oh well, on to the next week 😁

    Thank you all! The support helps more than you know! I will stay in the challenge but maybe lower the daily amount to just 4000.

    Yikes! Add me to the list of people who struggled this week. Social events (with food), work events (with food), schedule changes (with missing workouts), and a concerning inability to get a grip. Plan to take some time today to unpack what exactly happened in the last seven days and work on ensuring course correction for this coming week. Think I might be leaning on you all a bit more than usual as I do that, so thank you in advance.

    I always want to make the people in green for the month. You have to lose every week of the month long challenge to get that recognition. I very seldom have made it. My body doesn’t like to lose that many weeks in a row. That is a very powerful statement.

    That is smart. We can sometimes freak out and it sends us spiraling. Moving onward with out looking back is what we all should do.

    Sodium is my mortal enemy. I find restaurants are getting sneaky with their menus. With some you have to look up the calories for each side as it’s not included. Glad you are sticking with the step challenge.

    After some advice .....
    I'm going to the usa for 6 weeks later this year. Which are the best restaurants to get low calorie/low carb meals? And best supermarkets for low calorie ready made meals?
    Appreciate all your wisdom!
