    Oh my... :| when you admit to it and see it recorded like this...sigh. It has been a hard last 2 weeks. Feeling like i never have time to cook so have been eating out way too much. I found myself again on Sunday and am working hard on figuring out my time constraints and food issues. :(

    Looking forward to next week, as i am off all week to look after my nephews. Then i will be making homemade meals all week B)

    Apparently, another week of unintentional "maintenance"! I am still struggling. I just can't stay focused.

    I walked around my complex 3x last week and haven't again since last Friday. I was out and about walking on Saturday though. My daughter and I went to an Outlet mall for a wee bit of retail therapy for my son's birthday. Then I was off on Monday and yesterday was rainy. A cold front is passing through today so I am looking forward to a nice brisk walk today with one of my fur babies. It is currently 68°F in my neck of the woods going down to the mid 50s tonight. That is damn near blizzard weather for us south Floridians; don't laugh! :p
    I can't wait! I LOVE when the weather drops below the 70s! Then tomorrow, back up to the 80s again. :/

    Until next time; wishing everyone Peace B) , Love <3 and Weight Loss :smiley: !!

    My daily calories are all over the place, a couple of days over 2400, a couple under 1400.
    Yesterday was 1340 so I'm afraid today's low is not 'real'.
    So I think I need to work on being consistent this week and see what happens.
    I will try!

    Good luck to all the people here, on your road to a better, healthier life <3<3<3

    Sorry, team, a couple of pounds on :( The result of 4 days with my beloved, but boy, was it worth it! :D We stayed in a 1920's house in Southern England, from an era known here as Arts and Crafts. I felt very at home there, the annexe that the owners rent out to visitors/tourists was packed with really old books, and the annexe cosy but a bit faded, lived in. We had a bad storm one day, so perfect excuse to stay in with the log fire roaring and skip through these dusty books, clearly had been well loved by their original owners. The chap who co-owns the house, one left to his wife by her godmother years ago, is a sculptor and has many of his pieces around the grounds. It was lovely.

    Now I am retired, holidays don't feel the same as when I was escaping work, but these few days did feel like a real break. Back to the calorie counting now though, I won't make my target for this challenge, I fear, but I want to be under 280 lbs by Christmas, that would put me in the "teens", ie into 19st+ for the first time in decades. Stones are an English weight measure, 14lbs in each. It gets confusing, using pounds on MFP, stones when talking to my UK friends and family, and kilos for family in South Africa and New Zealand!

    My good wishes to those facing health worries, it cannot be easy for you. Well done to those managing to shed pounds, and Hang On In There for those like me who slip back sometimes. It took a long time to gain those pesky pounds, so they won't come off easily, but we will win! Forward, team! :)

    Thursday Truth ... this mornings weight states that I have met my modest goal for our Fall Challenge ... so I've had a big whoosh this week because of curbing in my calories ... I know that a lot of this is probably 'water weight' ... because I can feel the difference in my midsection; it just feels less bulky and looser. Following the servings and portion recommendations for the DASH diet the past 3 days have intensified to weight drop and also helped me keep myself satiated as well as in the 1350 average calorie range ... which is 500 calories a day less than I need to maintain. Let's see if I can continue with this eating plan yet another day. Cause, I'm a person who needs frequent change to keep myself interested in a project. Otherwise I get complacent and when that happens I start to consume more calories.

    So far, comparing the DASH portions to MFP calories, it appears that the food choices I made these past 3 days are lower in calorie than the average ... because I set my portions to be between 1400 and 1600 calories and while I haven't eaten every block of food in the plan on any day, I've eaten enough that I should have met or exceeded the 1400 calorie plan yet the MFP cals for the weighed or measured portions have come to from less than 1300 to just 1390, with an average input for the 3 days at 1348. But hey, who's to quibble over 50-150 calories ... heck, that's a cup of full fat milk!

    PS ... OH, I forgot to include in my calculation .. my 3 hours of activity this week resulted in NET calories of 987 ... and that is 900 calories a day less than I need to maintain ... a big factor in the whoosh!

    @tdunnegan
    Thanks for your consideration. I will look into those books. As I've said I was so good with this new routine for the first months that it really bothers me that my habits are still there, barely under the surface,, Obviously I'm downing all these calories without hunger. And I'm allowing myself to. Why was yesterday a fine day at 1340 and today I ate and ate and got to over 1800 calories in the space of a few hours, This is not what "regular" people do!
    And good job on being sugar free!
    Maybe I will also look into @Nikion901 dash diet portions control.
    @Birdie, in my opinion a few pounds up after such a lovely holiday is so worth it. I'm glad you had a lovely time!
    @b_lisieux ...love the photos, what an nice holiday,

    I love the TRUTH Thursday... I have had a head cold for the past few days and last night it took a turn for the worst and I feel like crap and so do my 2 daughters (12 & 9) I kept them home today and let them sleep, daddy is taking care of them. I forced myself to take my son to school and come into work, blah! Well to add to my already feeling like crap attitude, I drove through McDonalds this morning and ate a McGriddle and hash brown with a coffee. On the plus side I haven't had McD's for breakfast on almost 2 weeks (it was becoming a habit, ugh) AND I did not order an extra McGriddle or sausage burrito (like I normally do) So Yah for at least that! I am eating a salad for lunch with spicy thai dressing so I hope it will help clear my sinuses lol

    Thursday truth. Liver biopsies are not as horrible as you would think. Not a picnic but done worse things. Getting more sore as the day progresses. Been ravenous since I came home. My nurse used to work for my bariatric surgeon in the OR. Told me most of “us” ended up regaining, a real bright spot in my day. Statistics say otherwise. Waiting for the results is going to be challenging.

    Sorry you have to go through this. Do you think being ravenous today is emotional? Also, tell that nurse about your great attitude and your love of life.. there is no way you are regaining!
    Keep us posted!
