    Hello!!! Just a quick reminder for those who have not posted yet their info for the challenge to do so soon ... will be sharing our weekly results tomorrow morning.

    @kampers2000 was not sure if you were just sharing your progress or you would like to participate in the challenge. If you do, just copy the weigh-in template from any of the previous entries ... don't forget to let us know what your goal is!

    Have a good Thursday! :)

    Thursday - Truth (got anything you need to fess up to or get off your chest?)
    Wondering where the "leather hits the road" has gone to in my committment to improving my health status via weight loss and a more active lifestyle. It seems like I do a pretty good job of maintaining a weight that I do not want and a poor job of following through ... and that I have known and acknowledged this trait about myself since I joined this thread 3 years ago.

    No, I'm not disparing, or disparaging. I'm not asking for advice or tips on what to do or not to do. I'm just fessing up that I apparently must be 'ok' with the status-quo, that it's more comfortable to be where I am than to make the changes that lead to the results I say I seek. Am I being dishonest with myself? Am I saying what I know I 'should be' feeling instead of what I truly do feel?

    That's cause, I suppose that if I really wanted to have that more active and vital life then I would be willing to accept the discomfiture or moving these aching bones and muscles around, and would stop eating when the counter said 'done' instead of just going on as before.

    That's something to think about. Something to untangle in my head.

    Thursday Truth - I have slacked off on tracking, I made a commitment to myself and my nutritionist that I would track faithfully for 6 weeks so that we can review and make needed changes, but I've not been doing it, especially if I don't work that day. And I haven't been making good food choices either (yesterday I was so tired, I couldn't sleep because no electricity so no fan and no CPAP machine, so I ate nonstop all day) including a full pint of Blue Bell coffee flavored ice cream. Gaaah! So now I am going to re-commit, I will make the effort to track when I'm off work even if it's not convenient.

    @cellosmiles - congrats, doesn't that feel great when you can do that? I've got some closet cleaning to do to, and getting rid of those old "favorites" (which really were only favorites because they fit) is the best feeling in the world.

    Trying to post from a hand held device ...my computer is not functional and I may need a new hard drive. If the desktop doesn't restore from a backup and I do need a new drive, it will be a while before I'll be on here again. So, l'll be back again some day but I don't know when!

    Monday check in: so this morning I changed my goal from loosing 2lb a week down to 1lb per week. This takes me up from 1200 cal to 1570cal a day. For the past month I have been struggling with the 1200 and have been getting closer to the 1500, but it was because I was falling back into my bad habits again. I think my body needs a refresh, too low for too long maybe? So now hopefully with a higher cal budget I wont feel deprived(mentally I wasn't feeling that but I think my body was saying enough, I need more now that you are more active), and won't blindly eat to fill the void and making bad choices. So back to basics of weighing and logging everything, and making better choices!!!

    Monday check-in
    Well, was off Friday, started feeling sick and woozy while at hubs' appt. so stayed home from work. Saturday felt much better, went to dinner and the rodeo with family and had a great time. Sunday friends came over and cooked ribs and sausage for us on our grill, it was great to see them. Had another appt. for hubs today, a late one so didn't get home until 6 and didn't get to work until 8pm, will have to take LWOP I think since I don't think I have any leave. Overall not a bad eating weekend, and managed to track at least some of my food each day, tho not all.
    Not much activity on here over the weekend, hope everyone had a great one. I went back and copied Robin's intro to the thread and posted it here, in case any newbies or even old farts like me have forgotten the original format.

    This piece of information is no longer correct, if it ever was .... "After posting, you can find your way back by checking your "COMMUNITY" tab, then on the "MY DISCUSSIONS" listing, and all the DISCUSSIONS you have posted to will show up."

    The discussions that come up will be the ones that you created.

    The best way to find this thread again is to "bookmark" it. There IS a way to find the threads on which you have made posts... Select the search function and enter your MFP name in the Author field

    Ah ha! I'm temporarily using a borrowed iPhone cause my PC is sick or biting the dust, and just had my post truncated when I posted. Was it the length, the paragraph break, or the smiley faces I added in?

    Wanted to thank @GOINSTD12 for posting info from page 1 of this thread to anyone new.

    SUMMER HEAT CHALLENGE!

    This wasn't a bad week; I managed to lose even though I did indulge on my birthday :)

    What I have been trying to do for the last couple of weeks is this diet called Ketogenic ... basically low carbs, high fat and a bit of protein. I don't think every day I hit the macros, but trying to do my best and so far has worked .. I have started loosing weight again.

    I thought it would be harder and contrary to what everyone thinks that Italian food is only carbs, is actually full of veggies, lean meats and healthy fats .... so I am actually enjoying what I am eating and drinking (love wine :p )

    2. 10,000 steps 6/7:  0/7
    3. Under cal goal 7/7: ?/7 

    Stress is eating me alive, my brain is in survive mode. Which means I eat and dont remember, so I don't log. I'm hoping with school starting in less than 2 weeks and some big, important conversations and decisions about my nephew happening in those 2 weeks will release my mind from this stress, and with a school schedule come a regular routine.....I need that routine!!!!

    My fitbit broke and had to get a new one.
    I have continued with my Couch to 5k training, and am currently finishing my week 6.
    Last week, I joined a clean eating challenge. So far, I have failed .... But, it's been a learning experience!
    Been struggling to get in my 10k steps a day.
    Still adjusting to my new job.

    Next goals:
    I hope to start my week 7 of C25k training next week.
    I will work harder to achieve my 10k steps at least 6/7.
    I will continue the clean eating challenge best I can.
    Learn how to use new fitbit. :smiley:
