    @mnwalkingqueen : I had troubles on my android phone a lot over the last few weeks until a few days ago. Hope the issue has cleared up for you.

    ChrysalisCove and heather9986hg: Welcome to the group.

    Sweeetypie1: Hope things have leveled out a bit for you and that you're having success with your class. Are you using a pump? I know my mother-in-law had to make adjustments to her "baseline" setting for insulin when she tried eating lower carb, even without exercise (she's T1D).

    Saturday Check-in

    Good news: Solidly making progress on weight loss and back into a routine for working toward fitness.

    Adherence: Room for improvement again, but everything considered, it's not terrible.

    Intermittent fasting has continued to be the critical tool in my continued success. My workouts have been decent too, as I've been fueling for strength training (calorie/macro cycling). I am going to be trying to tighten up a bit on the macro cycling this weekend, as my weekends so far have been very mixed. My daughter and I are going to be signing up for a small powerlifting meet on August 8th. Our first competition-type event. Neither of us expect to break any records, but it'll be good to dip our toes into that world a bit more, especially for her, as she is looking to be competitive starting this coming school year.

    I now have diagnoses for a few of my physical issues. Two degenerated discs in my lower back and a bulging disc in my lower cervical section. I also now have the official diagnosis of carpal tunnel. The testing for other related issues came up negative, which is frustrating, knowing that carpal tunnel is never the pinky finger and I do intermittently have issues there. But an appointment is scheduled with the hand specialist, who will be discussing different treatment paths with me in a week and a half. I am beginning physical therapy for everything in the meantime.

    So the mental improvement/"stability" I'd been seeing was not med related. I have had some really, really bad moments this week, and last night had to rely on my support network because things went so haywire. In communicating with the Dr., we're going to make some med adjustments again. It's really frustrating, especially considering this was supposed to be my "best" week of the month. I suppose I'll probably take the dive and try some therapy as well. I'm not overly optimistic about it, but the gal is dual diagnosis, so at least I might be able to see if I'm really going the right direction in regards to disordered eating. I think I am, as things have generally been a lot more stable, but we'll see what a professional says.

    Hope you are all doing OK. Haven't been able to get into the community pages much this week due to app issues. It's pretty frustrating.

    They say everyone finds their own game plan that works. As far as kcals overall are concerned, I think I've found mine. IF and strategic food planning. SFP in my case is more that high danger items (e.g. chocolate bars and peanut butter cups) are stored in a place not of my knowing, as well as shopping with my accountability partner (my daughter) so things stay on the up and up with intake.

    Things are more stable now than they were when I wrote last week, but I'm definitely not out of the proverbial woods. I've been managing as I can with my support network, and I'm thankfully with my daughter most of the time lately, so that helps somewhat as well. One day at a time.

    I been having app issues for awhile now. First time able to get in since last Sunday. I am wondering if anyone here has gone back to the gym since the area has opened up? I stopped by my gym today to see how they are doing we are social distancing and I was not impressed. It appeared that the only area where they’re doing social distancing is the treadmills in the bicycles. There were three people in a row using weightlifting machines basically almost touching each other.

    Saturday Check-in (a day late)

    Good news: I think we might have found the right road for meds (regarding class of meds)

    Adherence: It was NOT a good week.

    Longer version

    Since MFP deleted my prior post from the 4th, I don't really feel that I can share much here. I guess we'll say that it wasn't as ugly on the mental health front this last week, but I have been absolutely RAVENOUS. I have binged multiple times, weight gain thankfully somewhat limited in gaining thanks to intermittent fasting. But I am still looking to end up around 1.5 pounds of actual gain for the week, so long as today doesn't go off track. If I can't get the eating/drive under control, I will have to try yet another med. Hopefully if that has to happen, staying in the same family of meds should hopefully carry over what gain has been made there.

    I won't bother with specifics of macro/commitments/goals this week. My motivation to share is very low based on the deletion of my prior post. I doubt many, if any, read through that anyway. Whatever. Sigh.

    I am pleased to report that I have gotten a bit more into my music again, and have been able to enjoy my strength workouts a bit more as well. I will try to focus more on those as I keep going, regardless of how the meds go.

    My targets/commitments/goals:
    Current macro targets:

    Minimums:
    Protein: >=120 grams
    Carbs: >=25 grams, net >=10 grams
    Fat: 42 grams

    it's been a cruel, cruel summer (I'm hearing that song in my head). Why is it so hard to stick to a plan and lose weight?

    Finally back into the app. I hope the accessibility issues are gone for now. I have lost almost all motivation with food. I have been walking twice a day 45 minutes each time but eating like a piggy. I no longer use the gym which was always kept me on track. Don’t mean to be a downer just dealing with reality sucks🤭
