    Okay, its not that mini but to get back to where I was this time last year - before a year of studying at night and eating everything in front of me. Its about 14lb, but really quite achievable (only I'm back studying again :D )

    "Thank you! It's been a long time since I have been so focused. It wasn't A1C back in May (although that crept up a fraction) that my Dr. sounded an alarm about. She was concerned about swelling she saw in my ankles and had a tone suggesting if she saw that again, she would consider prescribing a diuretic. Well, that annoyed me a little bit because when said that, I wasn't even a month out from my second side hip replacement. Well, today my shoes fit a little looser and my ankles look for more normal and I think I am on course to shut that idea down as well. Thanks again! "

    Cabbage is a natural loads of it...raw or cooked however you like.

    I'm pretty disappointed with myself right now. On Friday it will be one year of going to the gym. HIIT Class, Zumba, Spin and the machines when I don't have classes.
    I averaged 3x a week.
    Awww, I hope you can see past your disappointment to the accomplishment this actually is. Maybe your average times per week isn't where you wanted it, and maybe overall you're not where you wanted to be, but you have kept going to the gym for a whole YEAR, and you have improved in that year!!! You deserve to be proud of yourself.

    No “weight-loss” goal per se.

    Next 3 weeks - (4 seems too long and 2 is not enough) - so 3 weeks:
    a) Stick to Calorie goals
    b) More Water
    c) Exercise Goals (that’s easy)
    d) Don’t step on scales, but measure in the am
    For some reason watching the scales trips me up - more emotional response.
    If wt is down - 🥳 🎉🥂 - I’m not as careful with my food choices
    If wt is up - 😨😡🍫🍷🧀🍟🍕🍕🍕 - What the heck, throw in the towel.

    Measuring doesn’t show water weight and does better reflect muscle gain and fat loss.
    I’ll weigh at beginning of week 4.

    Can I copy these goals? They seem reasonable enough for me to start somewhere... just need to modify c. (I need to start exercising)
