    30th Dec

    > My lovely OH sorted out my bike tyre for me and so I was able to get out for a cycle this evening, only as far as the supermarket, but after a week of lazier days aside from a tiny bit of yoga and 1 row it was nice to be active.

    > I reviewed my first week of my binge eating self help program and found that I did pretty well, well enough to move onto the next step :smiley:

    It's NY Eve here. Hope everyone had a good Christmas, and here's to a new year of calorie counting, friendship, support and weightloss. Looking forward to success, new learnings and slow and steady loss.

    Today I made a list of all the things I accomplished in 2019 and the new experiences that I had. It was a pretty long list and made me happy. I also made a list of what I wanted to accomplish in 2020 from a professional, health, fitness, and personal basis. For the longest time I abandoned the concept of setting specific and obtainable goals to motivate and focus my attentions. I did that this past year and it has really helped both in keeping me motivated and in giving me purpose, which I desperately need. If you have not been setting goals, I encourage you to do so, especially if you are struggling. Just make sure they are doable and aren't too rigid and are not difficult to achieve. Here's to a productive 2020!

    Well this morning I hopped on the scales, and i had hit a new low. not quite what I hoped but a loss is a loss (especially after Christmas!) So a positive end to a trying year. 2020 is going to have several mountains to cross but I will deal with the as they crop up :) Happy New Year everyone!!!!

    So as I put in the doom thread, yesterday the cookies won. Or rather I thought they had when I posted, but I logged them and worked the rest of my day around them. I had them in the morning so I eneded up counting them as breakfast since I wasn't hungry until lunch time. I wouldn't do this all the time, but I am happy that I pulled it out of the fire and didn't allow it to become an all day binge.

    Awesomeness!

    Really enjoying being back at home after 3 weeks away. Feel so much more in control, which makes everything so much easier. Have walked every day (only 3 days, but still!) and haven't eaten any meat yet! After 3 weeks of meat at every main meal (other than my one vegetarian curry) it's been great to get back to my own cooking.
    Heading up to see my boys for a day sometime this week so cooking up a storm for them. They are training hard and appreciate not having to cook whenever possible. Bring on 2020!

    Walking late in the evening with the sun at such an angle that it elongates your shadow and makes you look thin!
