    You are doing so well! :) Love to see your food photos...totally yummy!

    Thanks all :) Getting to eat what I want is what makes this feasible to me. I've tried restrictions and I just can't last.
    EstrangedTiger thank you for the 'welcome back' :) I tried other healthy alternatives on my hiatus but I just didn't lose eating more frequently. I'm really most comfortable on OMAD.
    Did my run walk this morning and I don't come home till I get around 12k steps. The running is going much easier! I keep run-walking even after my app is completed. Just kind of get in the groove. Now....my 'run' is really just a slow comfortable jog. A couple times I thought I would get my heart rate up and ran a block at full speed...but then I remembered I got injured doing that at the gym a few years back....So I don't want to mess myself up again :#
    Son and I went to Olive Garden for dinner and I had 1/2 of the chicken scampi and a salad. Just not feeling like messing up the kitchen since hubby's gone. I spaced out taking a picture again! Bahhhhh I was down .3 overnight. Weightloss is slowing down but .2 everyday would make me very happy. Hope everyone is ginning along! Thank you for the encouragement :)

    Great Omad day...was not hungry before my 'hour'. Very stressful work day though :s I couldn't make time for my run/walk. We ordered in Chinese for dinner. Was up .5 over night. Hope everyone is stress free & hope you have a great night :)

    Haha you guys are funny. I can see now that I don't make the best choices in my meals...especially this past week. I'm going to try to clean it up a bit....but just a bit ;)
    I have a cold the last couple days. I did my run/walk today. It felt good. I enjoy being outside and being active. I've been watching you tube videos that don't advocate aerobics...seems like weight lifting is the way to go...but I do love what I'm doing so I'll ignore it for now.
    I ate around 4:30 & had burnt up chicken ( gahhhh that's how I like it when I only have to cook for myself) and a big salad with lots of avocado. I was down 1.7 pounds over night...that surprised me in a good way :)
    Another weekend is here! Hope everyone enjoys it :)

    Doing really well.
  • katjustkatkatjustkat Posts: 569Member Member Posts: 569Member Member
    Thanks EstrangedTiger...each day it is getting easier not thinking that I'm hungry outside of my window. I did my run/walk this morning and the run portion is now 25 minutes. I stay jogging mixed in with some walking after that and don't head home till I hit 12k steps.... 18.5 k steps right now. I ended up staying at the park an extra 45 minutes as I came across a loose dog. Luckily the family was out searching and saw me with him....phewwwww.
    I was up .3 over night. For dinner I had 3 ounces of steak, brussels sprouts and a salad of kale, spinach, arugula, avocado, a bit of feta cheese and some olives & olive oil and vinegar. Salad was really good.
    Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend :)

    Another day...Did my run/walk 12k steps today...luckily I went early because it rained the rest of the day. Only have 15k steps right now. Wasn't going to eat carbs for dinner but I bought a bunch of sushi that didn't get eaten yesterday so....I decided to not just throw it out. Down .2 over night. Seems like it takes me a whole lot of effort to get the scale to budge but I got a loooooong ways to go so I just need to keep giving it what I can.
    Sushi, green beans and left over steak for dinner. I'm pretty stuffed. Here comes another week; hope it's a good one for everyone :)

    Thank you ladies...I needed a lil pep in my step....Rained all day today so I took the day off from exercise. I'm up .3 over night...I made chili and a kale, spinach, arugula salad. Had a good OMAD day...no hunger. I'm thinking of checking in once a week but I'm not sure yet. I think I need the everyday accountability so I hope I'm not hogging up the site :# Hope everyone had a great, successful day :)

  • katjustkatkatjustkat Posts: 569Member Member Posts: 569Member Member
    Thank you D! I'm a pretty basic eater lol...
    Did my run/walk this morning and it was tad bit misty out. I warmed right up after 5 minutes. Feeling stronger every day in the jogging department. Now I don't stop once the app is over. Except...I walk up the hills backwards :p I'm surprised how quickly I adapted to the jog giving that I pretty much started getting shin splints the first week. It never progressed to be really bad.
    Defrosted some bean and chicken soup I had in the freezer and....had another kale, spinach and arugula salad. I guess I bought way too much of those three because I still have enough for another round of '3' for us...That's it...that's all I had and feeling stuffed again. Waiting for my 5 pm feed time is very easy now...basically just have water and 2 cups black coffee during the day.
    So....I'm back down .2 over night....I think I'm the type that gets a woosh every once in a while and just maintain the rest of the time. I'm doing everything right I believe. I
    'm watching a lot of wellness videos on You Tube to keep all this in the forefront of my mind. I have a history of forgetting how important all this is after a while. Probably from not putting myself first all these years of being a wife and mother.
    Hope everyone is doing well :)

    I love seeing your food photos...it looks so yummy! You are doing awesome, 7.2 loss since Sep 21. Keep up the good work! I no longer run/jog as I can hear my knees squeaking. Keep up the good work! :)
  • katjustkatkatjustkat Posts: 569Member Member Posts: 569Member Member
    Thank you for the encouraging words JP. It *feels* slow but really when I compare it to the weight coming on...it came on at a steady 2 pounds a year. I'm just gonna keep trying this time...it's encouraging to see the success stories on here and it's just a question of time and persistence.
    I did my run/walk in the morning and it drizzled on me the whole way. I was the only one out there. I didn't walk this time just started jogging because I wanted to warm up. Jp, yes there are much easier on our knees exercises. I definitely would stop if I had any warnings from my legs. I've been a big time walker all my life so I might be toughened up a bit in the walking/ jogging department. I know better than to outright run though. I used to do a lot of 'step aerobic' classes and you def need good knees for that.
    I was down .8 overnight. Tonight is sandwich night in our house so I made a tuna, havarti, tomato and avocado sandwich on whole grain bread. I t was big and I got full so that's all I had. It was pretty dang gooood >:)
    Hope everyone is doing well :)

    Thank you D :) The days are passing more quickly now. I'm pretty much in the same routine day after day but that's how I've always rolled. I hope your week is going well.
    Did my run this morning. I'm pretty much the only person out there. Kind of nice to have it all to myself. Basically just jogging now and a tiny walk warm up at the beginning and end.
    Made salmon, zucchini and squash and ...dun dun dunnnnn another kale, spinach and arugula salad. Added some feta and calamata olives from the grocery olive bar. I'm down .6 over night. I don't get these results eating more meals through the day. Actually...I lose NOTHING. Even if it's just eggs, tuna....that kind of food. Hope everyone is having a good week. I can't believe it's already Thursday!

    Good Omad day. Got my run in early on. Down .3 over night.
    Made an easy dinner. romaine, tomatoes, bacon and ranch. Some boiled shrimp and asparagus. Pretty filling, doesn't look like much but had to force myself to finish. I think tomorrow is pizza day >:)
    Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

    Had a nice pizza meal for my Omad yesterday. It was a nice treat/reward. I was down .2 over night on the 13th. Had a great, nice long jog. Today it is snowing :s but I knew it would so I hadn't taken a break from jogging to skip today. If it's snowing again tomorrow I will go to my rec center that has an indoor track.
    I've been feeling a lil dizzy when I bend over to pick stuff up. I'm relating it to my blood pressure medicine. I'm going to mess with the dosages this week so I will not be weighing in. It has a diuretic built in so it will mess with my weight. I'm gonna put my head down and continue with Omad and jogging and will check in on here next Tuesday. Fingers crossed my weight doesn't climb like crazy because of water retention. I'll be checking my bp morning and night. I hope to get off the med completely. I've noticed in the past that my heart rate will not elevate even during a strenuous work out so I'm wondering if that inhibits some calorie burning? Ok I hope everyone has a great week and I'll see you on Saturday. If my bp gets crazy I'll get back on my prescribed dosage and be on here sooner. :o
    **I'm also experimenting with a pinch of Himalayan pink salt through the day.
