    JFT, Friday, March 15th
    • 64 oz water before 7:00 p.m. 😖 Was still nauseous today and water tastes like metal. Hard to get down. Do better tomorrow!
    • Level up to unprocessed whole food choices >80% of the day. 😖 Nausea. Ate what I could get down. Baby steps. It’s ok!
    • Close at least one activity ring on my watch. 😊
    • Journal / prayer and devotional time. 😊
    • Early bedtime. Evening routine. 😊


    Happy Saturday! I didn’t do so great with my food and water goals yesterday, but it’s ok. It’s going to take some time to bounce back. Every day is a brand new start. 😁

    Here I go again.. not posting in over a week my goals. Like @Bex .. I am really struggling with getting going, until now we have "shorts" and "short sleeve" kind of weather... and I feel so out of shape! Physically I can tell the difference to... my stamina is not what it used to be just a year ago. Hubby reminds me that I am going to be 74 .. but I refuse to believe that is the reason. I weigh a good 15 pounds more than I did a year ago... almost 25 pounds more than I should be weight to be in the healthy range.
    So... whos going to do anything about it? I'm not going to take that "magic pill" that Kelly Clarkson took... there is no such thing as that. So .... I need to get with it!!
    It is very late today, saturday, so I won't post my goals.. except the rest of tonite.. no more food. I ate healthy all day, except I tend to grab a handful of nuts, mix in a handful of raisins. I did this TWICE today.. ha.. thats probably like 1000 calories right there. Even though its healthy, its still calories!!
    So ... tomorrow is even suppose to be my official weigh in day. I will do that.. and get back on track!!
    @PackerFanInGB: I hope you realize how much you have inspired, not only me, but everyone on this board. We have all been routing for you... you are one very brave and strong lady! I knew you would get through this .. you had the right attitide! And I love your focus": Today I am healthy. Today I choose peace! What a beautiful quote. Love you like a wonderful friend I have never met. So very very proud of you... You rest though dear friend! Take your time and do what you need to do to regain your strength back. Your a fighter .. you've got this beat!!
    @beachwalker99: I would love to see your crocheted lepracaun! Please post a picture! I'm trying to learn crochet.. but I find if I do it too long my hands hurt. Gosh.. I hope that's not arthritis! Someone told me I just need to keep practicing.. but so far, all I make is dishcloths. But ... crocheted dishcloths are the best!
    @Snowflake1968 -- logging everyday is great progress! It starts with that!
    @Bex953172 -- Ha .. I'll be the one to tell you off!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!

    So Ok ... who wants to join me in a "small" challenge. Since I weigh myself tomorrow (and yikes, I don't want to even see what it says), who wants to join me in just a TWO POUND challenge!! My aim is 2 pounds off... even if it takes me 2 weeks. Hows that for small steps. @Bex .. you in???

    You read my mind! I was gonna kickstart the 5lb challenge!! I think we can do better than 2lb!

    Although I didn't start logging yesterday. Oops!

    However I am today! On my birthday of all days! But better to start now then never!

    I'll also weigh myself tomorrow although I know I'm not gonna like what I see!

    JFT Saturday 16th March

    THINK before I eat ✅ 3 sensible meals :)
    Only one snack ✅
    PF exercises ✅
    Back exercises ✅

    Today is the only day in the next 2 weeks which is forecast dry (until about 4pm anyway!) so I really need to start doing outside things. Will take it slowly.

    Got some garden tidying done before the rain started at 4pm. Forecast was spot on. It's still raining so no outside stuff today.

    JFT Sunday 17th March

    THink before I eat
    Only one snack

    @Bex953172 Happy birthday! 🎉🎈
    You're a stronger woman than I am, logging on your birthday! Have a great day.

    May I join in on the challenge, whether its 2 or 5 pounds? I really need something to make me focus on this. I'll weigh myself tomorrow morning before I get ready to see the osteopath.

    I know I haven't posted goals today but I have been logging my food! My scales ran out of battery but I'm charging them up now so hopefully they'll be ready by dinner time!

    I'm not sure how I want to proceed with this.. but I think I may log on daily but not post goals, but rather post what I've achieved that day. I think I find that easier than all the editing etc in the posts and having to do the posts twice a day! Especially when they're basically the same goals

    But in going to have my goals written down at home.

    Today is going well so far :)

    Yesterday I walked 4 miles. Normally, this is easy for me, even after I go to the gym for 60 minutes in the morning. But yesterday.. those 4 miles felt like I had walked 10! SO I KNOW I've got to get back to doing more squats, more leg exercises, and most importantly, get these extra 20 pounds off. I love to garden. So many people that are my age can't garden anymore.. because they can't get down on the ground. I don't want that to happen.. I love it too much. I love planting, mowing the grass, anything outside.
    Think of carrying a large bag of fertilizer, or bird seed that weighs 20 pounds. That is hard to do!
    I made myself a chart at the beginning of the year... what I wanted to lose each month (and it was only 4 pounds a month, so not that much). I wrote down what I wanted to weigh at the beginning of February, March, April, etc.
    I took it down, because I wasn't meeting those goals. But IF I had kept going since I started, on April 1st .I would be close to 12 pounds lighter than I currently am. That was a very conservative loss of just 1 pound a week...and I didn't even do that. Instead, ha.. I am like 2 pounds lighter this morning than I was January 1st.
    So ... like I said. If I don't do it, who will! There is no magic pill to just drop the pounds. It has to be ME.
    So, my goals today, March 17 (st Patricks day!)
    1. LOG ALL FOOD
    2. concentrate on water
    3. concentrate on calories .. keep it at or below 1400
    4. do 25 squats
    5. go for a walk since I skipped the gym this morning
    6. Do it. Do not give up. Its totally up to me what I want to look and feel like. If I want to continue to feel old and tired, look frumpy in my clothes.. keep doing what I am doing. If I want to fight getting older, stay as limber and strong as I can, wear cute clothes .. I have to change. Its up to me.
    7. What do I want to look like the rest of my life. Overweight, frumpy, unable to do what I love. Or be a "young" 74 year old.. that can still walk, can still garden, can wear beautiful clothes and feel like I look nice, to be energic, to be able to continue to ride my bike, etc etc! Thats what I want.

    Good Morning Y'all.

    I am new to this group but not new to the lifestyle.

    14 days ago I renewed my promise to better my health ... physically and spiritually.

    I am down 10.6 pounds by eating healthier and increasing my water intake.

    JFT .... get in all my water and learn something new today.

    @PackerFanInGB WONDERFUL news!!! So glad you shared, and I am so happy for you. Ease back in, as you said.

    @Bex953172 HaPpY BiRtHdAy BeX!!!

    @pridesabtch Gia is a gorgeous dog. Aren't puppies an adventure?

    @SaLandrum Welcome to JFT!

    Well, I haven't posted goals or food for a few days, nor have I gone for dog walks or any other exercise. Whenever I go out of town to visit my parents, I stay overnight and typically skip logging, since it would be guesswork. This trip was fine, but the day before, we had workmen/thermostat issues at home, and when I returned, weather not so nice & I was lazy. Apparently, our typical March weather has reappeared for a while, and I'm going to have to suck it up. That fake spring we had was so nice, but not sticking around. Hubby and I have seen snow flurries on and off today. Oh well.

    JFT 3/17 Sunday
    1) Church 9:00 :smiley:
    2) Salmon, veg & side salad for supper / log all food / 64+ oz. water
    3) Suck it up, bundle up for wind & cold and WALK DOG
    4) Air in tires (warning light went on this a.m.) / check status of Soc. Sec. application / wash dishes / start planning & make list for Easter dinner / read / digital declutter / other?

    @SaLandrum Welcome to the group!

    @mytime6630 I'm in for the 5lb challenge! And yes come on!! We CAN do this. By May 1st we'll both be 5lbs lighter! Tell yourself that!

    Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!! 32 today :)

    Had a good day food wise. My phone thought I was cycling again 😂 I wasn't, at the time it's saying I was cooking Sunday dinner!
    I'm actually over by 7 calories lol! But the Sunday dinner was probs a bit too big AND there was cake afterwards but I had a small slice. They're just high in calories though, hard to avoid.

    I didn't eat all my dinner though, which is a first. I actually stopped when I was full!

    I've also asked Ash to help me with one thing. To never let me have 3 enchiladas on "Mexican night" ever again. Two is MORE than enough and I always ALWAYS have 3. Because I'm addicted to them because theyre so nice, espeically with some sour cream on the side *drool*. But I always feel sick afterwards from being so full so I've told him to ban me from having 3 lol *sigh* the things we have to do.
