    Report in or come to the Principals Office immediately! :smiley:

    thank you for getting after me. I'm not doing so hot so Ive been avoiding my reporting. naughty I know!
    so weigh in Friday was
    2/1 was 136.2
    2/8 140.8

    seriously! I was finally just 1 lb away from my goal and I've blown it. Does anyone else do this? I have a cold so I can't exercise like I want to and exercising keeps me focused and motivated to eat better. Wah! But I've refocused. I leave for a trip on the 26th. Going to stay on track so I'm feeling good for my trip!

    I do it all the time! Whenever I get close to a milestone, I "celebrate". My brain goes into a mode where it's like "See, you can lose if you want to. You're not incapable, but I don't want to anymore, let's cheat just a little, shall we?" :lol: And then I gain back 90% of what I've lost. At least I'm losing each year, but not nearly as much as I want.

    Ahanaz - Week 2 - Sunday
    PW: 153.2
    CW: 153.6

    With cheating horrible the last few weeks, having pasta, pizza, chocolate... Have been up around 154-155lbs I was happy to see 153 on the scale. I said I'll be better this week... well that went down the drain. I need to take it back to basic. Forget keto. Keto isn't for me with my lifestyle where I often have dinner or are on a dinner with others. It's hard to control what's available.

    This week my ONLY goal will be to fast 16h / day again. I managed 42 and 46 hours at the beginning, so 16 shouldn't be hard. I just need to stay away from the kitchen in the morning at work lol

    Keep putting the phone in my coat pocket or purse, then it doesn't track as well. Will try to remember to keep phone in pants pocket.

    I got sick of that too...bought a fitbit...much more accurate and handy! My hardest lesson was when in a store with a cart, forgetting to put either of them in my pocket...when you're pushing a cart, you can't swing your arms or hold a phone in motion! LOL Lessons learned the hard way!! Enjoy your Sunday!

    So over this bitter cold crud. How cold is it where you are? Yesterday my steps ducked again because it was a high of -5°F, before wind chill. Today though was above 0 (not by much) so I decided to venture out to my garage to workout. I had to set up a space heater and aim at my treadmill to warm it up before it would work, and my pull up band was frozen and wouldn't stretch, ugh, but I did 30 minutes of lifting, and 14 minutes cardio, better than nothing.

    Week 2
    Monday
    Previous Weight 150.8
    Current Weight 151.8

    Grrrr... So tired of losing and gaining the same pound. My own fault. I keep wishing my weight away without putting in much
    effort to help myself. I have to get my eating under better and healthier control and do a lot more consistent exercise.

    Just what I was thinking today when saw my weight progress graph! Satisfaction in our mind can be our greatest enemy.
    I don't want to go back there ever and sabotage my hard work! I can't afford that! 😰😰 It's really like trekking, one slip leads to many and suddenly you see that the distance to the peak is doubled.

    I'm in Northern Cali, so not much cold to talk about in comparison. I must admit. I miss the kind of cold you seem to have now. I'm from Sweden, and haven't got a "proper" winter since 2014. While it's not fun when you're in it, personally I miss it. Not having it have taken away the winter feeling, and Christmas spirit. It's just not the same without it.
