    What I'd like to share about my progress this week (or not ):

    Still in self isolation but this week I switched to intermittent fasting instead of just sticking to a caloric deficit. It definitely suits me better, since my eating preferences changed since the last time I was on MFP.
    The very very low activity levels sure are making this harder, but there's a downward trend so I'll take that happily.
    Measures a relaxing a bit starting tomorrow so I'm hoping to get some outdoor exercise and keep going!

    What I'd like to share about my progress this week: The good news is, I didn't go up from last week. My weight has been all over the place this week, from 184 to 188. Retaining water big time and still getting my calorie consumption under control again. Had fewer days of going over at least. Workouts stayed the same. Onward!

    What I'd like to share about my progress this week: i'm going to keep hiking 3 days a week. But i think my body responds better to strength training than cardio. Because i do more strength training at the gym and since i've stopped going to the gym and only doing walking/hiking, my weight has been kind of going nowhere. Just up and down, no real progress. My calories have stayed the same so the only thing that has changed is my workout routine. So i'll check back next week to see if strengh training will help!

    Stay at home orders are really starting to get me down. It feels like all I can do is eat. I workout more then before but it just can't compete with my poor eating habits. I also have been drinking less water then before. I know what I need to do to get back on track but it's been very hard to find the determination lately. With how hard it has been I think I am going to get back down under 150 and really work to maintain. Hopefully I can get down to 145 and deal with the last 5 lbs when stay at home orders finally end.
    Best of luck everyone. Cheers to the next week.

    What I'd like to share about my progress this week: Feels good to continue to be headed in the right direction on the weight. As important, am seeing some pay-off of strength training, in the form of some more visable/feel-able muscle tone and definition. YES. B)

    I set up a reward box for every milestone. That includes every 5 pounds and it's not always food. I'm doing low carb, portion control and incorporating walking and strength workouts.
    Good luck to everyone. 🌻

    What I'd like to share about my progress this week: Happy mothers day to any moms here! I was only able to do 2 days of strength training this week but i'm going to try for 3 or 4 next week. My weight went up but i did lose a combined 1.5 inches from my waist and hips! I feel pretty good about the new measurements because they went up .5 an inch last week and now they are down lower then before! Going to keep doing what i'm doing and try not to let the scale discourage me too much.

    i have a toothache that just won't go away.

    mommy, I hope you can get that tooth looked at. I say this because once, when I was in college & could not afford to get proper dental care, I had to let a toothache go untreated resulting in need for a crown that gave me years of trouble falling off, not fitting right, etc. It all could have been prevented by a simple filling when the cavity was small. Anyway...fingers crossed it has now resolved but if it has not I hope you can get it looked at.
    Take good care! B)
