    @Bex --- I am the same way.By hubby telling me that, not only did it make me feel bad.. but I know he is right. I can tell by my clothes, but more importantly, I can tell in how I feel.. which is not nearly as good as when I was 20 lbs lighter!!But... like you... it got me more motivated!!
    It looks like you had a great day!! One down, another one tomorrow, right! I am also not eating my exercise calories. I've got the exercise thing down.. in fact, I love it. Most days I go to the gym in the mornings, and if the temps are above 38 degrees I go outside for a 3-4 mile walk. (Ha.. I wonder what I would weigh if I didn't exercise!!!). But, I am not recording these in hopes that by not eating these calories the scale will start to move.
    I went off my plan some today.. but not too bad. Ate 2 very small apples, and tonite I had a bananaa.. that was more stress eating, as I got into an argument with my daughter over the phone. First thing I knew I had eaten a bananna .. I think without even chewing LOL!! But that tells you how bad I've gotten with the emotional eating crap! At least it was just a bananna!
    Your doing great .. and you motivate me as well!!! Keep it up!!

    A banana and an apple though is fine! Stop kicking yourself! You used to eat loads of cookies instead! so did I!!
    In fact I have to NOT buy ginger nut biscuits this week because I find them so addictive lmao

    I do 4 miles per day Mon-Fri just for the school run. So on them days I need to do low exercise (maybe weights) and then the weekend is where I need to do some sort of cardio because I'm pretty sedentary over the weekend unless we go for a walk with the kids but the weather's pretty rubbish atm!

    @Bex953172 I love your tips and tricks section. Smart and motivational!

    @mytime6630 I wanted the Chiefs and the Lions to come out on top too! My husband is from KC, MO and I'm from Michigan. It would have been an epic match for us. Hopefully next year! I'm a Lions fan first and a Chiefs fan second, so at least one of them made it through.

    My post:

    I slipped up in a few ways. I have fallen behind in my school work and I had a beer on 1/28 nursing my wounds after the Lions got crushed in the second half of the championship game. I instantly felt guilty because I know I have loved ones cheering me on. Instead of viewing it as a massive mistake I'm seeing it as a minor mistake and a lesson learned - it's not worth it. I need to do better at checking in on here to help with my personal accountability.

    MOVING FORWARD!

    JFT:
    - No alcohol
    - Write/submit my paper for Compensation Administration class
    - Stick to my calorie goals
    - Take the day off from making dinner for DH (He'll survive)
    - Do at home physical therapy routine
    My name is Amberly, I'm 29 living in Michigan. I've quit drinking as of 1/17 and am sober (minus one beer slip up on 1/28 not that I felt anything with a stupid high tolerance) after drinking nearly everyday for 2+ years starting when I was in the military which, obviously, has been horrible for my health. I gained 130+ lbs as a result of heavy drinking and damaged my body in other ways, but I'm fixing it up. Me and alcohol are on a break.

    Ultimate goals:
    -Have drinking under control, even if that means no alcohol.
    -Graduate in April 2024
    -Reach goal weight

    SW: 286.4 (lbs)
    CW: 279.4
    GW for 2024 220
    Final GW: 160

    Good luck to everyone JFT and everyday.

    1. log all food :) But after I closed my food diary.. hubby wanted a margarita and popcorn. I gave in.. but as I count a "win" I only had a very small bowl of popcorn.. instead of a bowl piled so high it would spill over!! And ... I put a lot of ice in a small glass... so I only had just a little margarita. We buy the mix.. and I think next time I'm in the store I'm going to look at the skinny girl margaritas. Sometimes .. just a little is all I need!
    2. concentrate on water .. especially in the evening. I'm not hungry, just thirsty :)
    3. go to gym .. already did this :)
    4. get out for a walk .. going to be in the 50s! :)
    5. look for more ideas for a chiefs quilt. Thats what I'm struggling with .. I have the fabric, just can't find a pattern I like! :) Went to 2 quilt stores to try and get ideas for his quilt. I have a couple ideas, but I need to finish up his tshirt quilt!

    5. finish the borders on tshirt quilt ... sandwich layers and pin to start FMQ

    7. make oatmeal cookies.. ha.. yes... hubby loves oatmeal cookies with raisins. He has 2 of these, along with a protein shake for lunch. I do also ... they do fill us up.. I'm not hungry all day. (And ha.. arn't they healthy!). I keep them in the freezer downstairs so I only have 2.. but with baking them today, I already had 3. Ok.. time to stop eating them.

    Fair enough with whatever works :D The important part is you've gotten to know yourself and you're making it work! Sharing it helps others consider those options as well so I appreciate it :smile: I also try to put myself in my slimmer future self mentality sometimes. "What would healthy Amberly choose?" lmao

    Gosh not the best day. Deffo too many snacks again! Need to stop the snacks and maybe just try have my 3 meals per day and only fruit in between.

    But I logged every bit though. I was over on calories by 42 lol! But I wasn't supposed to eat back exercise calories.

    Bit of a mixture of me making bad choices and deffo bad food planning as I had jacket potato for lunch but had no alternatives for dinner where I had to have either chips or pasta. A lighter lunch would have accounted for the heavier evening meals so need to keep that in mind!!

    But tomorrow I'll have to do better!

    Stress has taken away my appetite. Past couple days I’ve eaten because I know that’s what’s expected of me, not because I’m hungry or actually enjoying it. My IBS isn’t thrilled with my choices.

    And just to add to my stress levels I’m taking some classes starting next week to get a grant writing certificate, which will hopefully lead to a better job. It’s only two weeks, but they cram 30 hours of instruction into those two weeks. Trying to tell myself it will all be worth it but the self doubt is kicking in so hard. Am I really good enough to handle it? And will it actually make a difference?

    So many unknowns. I’m in my thirties, I thought I’d have things figured out by now. Instead I just feel lost trying to figure out what my purpose is.

    I'm in my 30s and very much feel the same sometimes, I don't feel like I've got things figured out. My only job is to be "mum" thats it and even then I often wonder if I'm doing the whole family thing wrong! I'm bewildered at how people can be a parent AND work. I feel like the kids take up so much time! And the last job I had was 10 years ago and I have zero experience in anything lol

    I reckon you can do it! It's only two weeks and they wouldn't make a course that isn't achievable! I won't say it'll be easy because it might not, but give it your all for just two weeks (which will fly by) and you never know what might happen next! I hope it does allow you to move jobs though as I remember you posting about your current job and how the workload is endless!

    I was about indulgent over Christmas and put on a few lbs, so had to buckle down, and focus more.

    I’ve had a very busy few weeks. But I have kept track.

    Nothing out of the ordinary, just RL.

    Oh my goodness! I have to go back to page 9 to catch up. I’m sorry, friends, for going MIA again. I’ve not been feeling well on chemo. And my port wasn’t working correcting for the infusions so I had to go in for a port exchange in my chest a few days after my last chemo so that knocked me down a little harder too.

    Yesterday, I had chemo treatment #4 of 6 (maybe 7 now since they lowered my dose by 25% so I get the full dose). I’m very tired today but over the next few days I’ll get nauseous, bone pain will set in for about 5 days, and I’ll be majorly fatigued for about two weeks. Then I’ll have about 5 days of feeling good before next treatment. The terrible taste in my mouth is causing me to only be able to stomach sweet food and I really don’t want to eat that much sugar, so I need to start logging my food on here and keeping an eye on the macros of my nutritional intake.

    I hope you are all doing good! I think about you and miss you when I’m not on here. I’ll spend some time catching up while I rest over these next few weeks.

    Just for Wednesday, 2/1
    • Create 25h plan and assess yesterday’s
    • Drink 64+ oz water
    • Nap with sleep mask and earbuds. Listen to Calm app or podcast.
    • eat what my body allows, but log every bite and close food diary at the end of the day.
    • Dr appointment for injection and stitch removal
    • Early bedtime

    We do what we need to do so we can do what we want to do.
