  • Not gaining is good. Practicing maintenance isn’t a bad thing. Way to make improvements to your plan and push forward. Remember perfectionism can be a powerful nemesis. It’s ok not to be perfect all of the time, and there is no harm in trying to be perfect every time.

    Thanks, maintenance this month is definitely a positive for me.

    You'll likely lose a bit of water weight once you get back into your groove, too. :)

    @DogMom919 I'm the same way. I'm here pretty much every day, but don't post nearly as often as I should. It's such a great group & I really love reading everyone's posts every day, I just need to get better at contributing!

    That is flattering and pretty scary. What would I do? In the past I would fail. In more recent time I would just not allow my MANY mistakes to stop me.

    The goal is for everyone to become their own expert. That is how I want to guide you because I can't tell anyone but me what will definitely work or at least what will work for 230 pounds. I don't even know if I am enough of an expert yet on me to get to some sort of a goal and stay there.

    @NovusDies Expert or no, you do a great job of helping folks -- as well as inspiring them.

    Expert or not, your words are wise and your progress is inspiring :)

    No numbers from me today. The spreadsheet has to be rebooted with a new starting weight and I am not eating a deficit for at least another week. My weight has continued to climb from water weight which is disappointing. I was kind of hoping those days were behind me. So far I am up around 9 pounds from my post surgical weight.

    This whole thing will be like starting anew when I go back in a deficit. I will go through a couple of weeks of water weight loss, my TDEE is different, my rate of loss will be different, and it will take about 6 weeks to get clean numbers again.

    Nice to see you back @NovusDies

    Last week I was 237, I've been cycling 3lb & after 7 days I'm up 1lb. I've had a busy work week and had to work 6am-5.30pm Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday :cry: and I've tried to stay on top as much as I could. I've done well but there was room for improvement.

    I hope it’s ok to jump in here. I’ve been using MFP since last Christmas, but I’m mostly just a lurker on the boards. I found a small, closed group here that has been very helpful, but it’s not very active right now. I’ve grown to enjoy sharing this experience with others, so I thought I’d introduce myself here.

    I’ll be 42 next week, and I’m 6 ft tall.

    SW: 314
    CW: 248
    GW: 194 (for now, anyway... That’s still a few pounds in “overweight” BMI territory, so I may adjust it when I get closer. Even that seemed nearly impossible when I started, but now I’m more than halfway there!)


    Great going and I m glad you found us. We are still a fairly new group but I think our activity is decent and I hope you agree and add to it!

    Number this morning 296.8 --- down 128.2 pounds since starting here exactly eleven months ago today.

    Great Job, I look forward to being able to say that myself. We must have started about the same spot. My highest recorded weight was 427.

    Just get better, heal up, figure it out when you feel better.
