    I've really fallen off the wagon with exercise and making good food choices, but I've still logged a lot. Lots of things got me off my routine, and I'm struggling to get back to it. I'm making a million excuses and I know it, I just don't know how to fix it. I'm determined to get to the gym at least 3 times before/ right after Thanksgiving. I don't participate in black friday, so I can hit the gym then.

    Are any of you making Christmas cookies this year? My family loves them but MAN I do not need those around the house. I usually start making the shortbreads and keeping them in the freezer about this time of the season, and I think keeping them frozen will help me. I've really struggled with being hungry later in the day and into the evening recently and that's when the bad decision-making happens for me.

    The other thing I *could* do is put mint in everything. I hate mint in baked goods :lol:

    @DebCountsAll I feel you, Sister! I am struggling to motivate myself to make my annual peanut butter balls. They are FAT PILLS... and of course, I love them. But so does everyone else and it makes for a good economical gift. My plan is to make them in the morning when my motivation is strongest (I have the same evening problem as you) and then either #1 freeze them in my freezer or #2 ask a friend to put them in their freezer. I may have to go with #2. When there is bad food in the house, I always seem to find a weak moment (especially in the evenings) to give in. Not good. Your mint idea is a good one for you.

    Yes, I have a lot of baking planned. BUT it is all for gift giving, so I know I can't eat it all. I almost feel bad giving people cookies and breads, but I know they share it with their families, so it's not all calories for one person.

    Nov 10 / 237.4 / I weighed less yesterday, but last night’s dinner wasn’t until 9 pm and that really affects me even if the calories and sodium are on point.

It has taken me *all* of this week just to get back to where I was last Saturday morning. This would be fine if I was on maintenance, but I’m not. I think I need this lesson now, right before the holidays, to really understand what one day’s overindulgence nets.

    For the breakfast suggestion, I often have to do a rush breakfast in the car and do well taking along a green smoothie with protein powder boost.
    If you have a little time to do meal prep on the weekend the best is baking up a batch egg/turkey sausage/spinach cups in a muffin tin and then your set for the week. You said you like oatmeal, well there are also recipes out there for simple baked oatmeal in muffin tin that travel well and can be made in advance! Hope that helps a little and good luck on your journey!:)

    I've been having some trouble with my Internet and then my Wi-Fi and had to go through and reprogram everything in my house so I skipped updating last week and was too busy to figure out why my scale wasn't syncing to update this Monday. I know....excuses. Sorry. Used this as an excuse not to log all of my food too. The truth is, I've only had one foot on the trolley and haven't been doing as well as I should and I know it.

    Anyway, the scale is back on the Wi-Fi and syncing again now so I can't use that as an excuse anymore. Will have to do it all over again next month when I change internet providers because the one we have is just not dependable.

    Hey everyone,
    I’m new here on this forum. I’ve been not logging for over a year. I wanted one last try at having a child, and underwent IVF at 41. Gave birth to twins at 42 last this past spring, and have had a tough recovery and kick in the pants with the reality of caring for twins who don’t sleep well.
    When I was pregnant I was put on strict bedrest for 5 months and I ended up putting on tons of weight. I continued to gain weight after birth by using quick and easy - but terrible - food choices. I also didn’t breastfeed so no chance at losing that way. So here I am, utterly exhausted with one older child and 6 month twins, arguably at my heaviest ever. I’m 225kbs today and should be 125, as I’m only 5’3”. I am vegetarian and have PCOS (and borderline hypothyroid). It’s going to be a tough haul, but I don’t want to be too fat and tired to play with my kids. I also don’t want to age poorly as a highly obese person. I already feel aches, pains, knee and back problems. I can’t imagine it getting worse. Time to get healthy!!

    Hi, everybody! Not sure if any of my old buddies are still here, but I'm back after a very hard year. I've been fighting congestive heart failure for 2 years now, and now its getting the best of me. I've been in the hospital almost all of November and not sure when I'm going home, I've still got fluid around my heart and a tear in my Mitral valve that needs to be fixed. My case is going before committee on 11/28 for review, to determine if I qualify for a heart pump (LVAD). That's open heart surgery but my disease has progressed so much I need it.
    I'm here because I need to get below 35% BMI in order to qualify for a heart transplant. That's only about 15 pounds loss but when you are as weak as I am its difficult to reduce calories and lose weight without losing muscle too. Please pray for me and offer any advice you might have. Thanks

    I have exactly 100lbs to lose. I’m not sure how to add friends but I could really use some support and motivation. I’ve lose 60lbs on my own before. This time is definitely more difficult.

    Welcome to @consuelo73, @GOINSTD12 and @rinskeep1! The first step is the hardest but utiilize motivation tapes as much as possible. They help me a lot. I listen to one every night before bed and other times as well. Also, when I logged (even if I stray) that helps. Best wishes to all of you.

    GOISTD12 - I hope you are taking CoQ10. That is so helpful for congestive hard failure

    Back from a week in Ft Myers. Did pretty good all things considered. Time to stop playing games with my health and life and get rid of this weight once and for all. I must put this front and center. I must add exercise. Sort of stressed. Just finished Xmas decorating and my house is a mess. Two parties to give (25 people and 32 people) and I have to buy gifts for the 32 before the 15th. Three parties to attend and I have to prepare a dish for two of them. Also I have to drive to my cabin (1.5 hr one way) Tuesday and may have to go back one day this week. Take a deep breath, breathe, breathe


    But regardless, weight loss must be primary
