@JNettie73 -- I hear you about the eye doctor. I also need to make an appointment and get new glasses. Fingers crossed that you get your wish about those bloodwork results. Yes, I miss the longer walks with my Gunner. He still really wants to go on walks, but his poor little legs just won't cooperate. I fear we may need to make a really hard decision in the near future. We love him so much, but when he starts having more bad days than good ones, we will know it's time to let him go. I honestly can't imagine life without him, but I don't want to be selfish and cause him any suffering. @lmf1012 -- That's great that you went on a hike. I can't wait until I'm done with this school year, so I can get out more. When we moved last summer, I was so excited to be just a few blocks from a forest preserve, but I only managed to get there once before the weather got bad. I also discovered there is a reservoir with some trails a few blocks in the other direction, but I haven't explored those at all. I'm trying to get some friends to commit to regular walking schedules, so I can get into a good routine.@trinati2001 -- I'm also doing better with water but can't seem to stick to my fasting schedule. At least I'm managing to stay under my calorie goal most days.
AFM--My sister and I love going to see live music. In 2019 we went to Eddie Vedder's Ohana Festival in Dana Point, CA and had a blast. We were supposed to go to Boston Calling last May, but the pandemic hit. Since that got canceled, we decided to buy tickets to Ohana 2021 and crossed our fingers that it would happen. We just found out last week that it is a go!! It's not until September, but I'm already so excited!!
This past weekend, I installed a raised garden bed. It was a lot of work, and I'm still sore, but I can't wait to have fresh tomatoes, basil, and peppers.
I'm exhausted and really just wish this school year was over. I love teaching and love my students, but the challenges of this year have been about as much as I can take.

Hi folks! I used to be a regular here and fell off the wagon. Life dealt me some blows and my weight has crept up again. Not as high as previously, but too high for my own good. Let me reintroduce myself:
My name is Tracy. I am 48 years old and live in Mandan, ND. Since I was here last, I've had my mother pass, my brother pass, my husband leave, my son (20) go to college (and return due to COVID) and my daughter (15) struggle with all of it and had to go away for some extended therapy. She is back -- doing better but still has some struggles. I am a stress eater and it shows.
My divorce was easy with no lawyers involved. We are still friends. I am back in the dating game (oy!). I purchased my own house this past December and love that I did it on my own.
So now that life has settled down again, I'm trying to focus on myself. This was the first week of getting back on track with my eating. Still need to improve my movement but I also know not to try to go 100% on day one. I need some accountability and I'm hoping that I can get back on track here.
Lowest Weight: 182.6
Starting Weight (July 4) 223.4
Current Weight: 219.8
I'm looking forward to getting to know some of the new people on here and catching up with those that are still here.
