    Saturday Check-in (a day late)

    Good news: I think we might have found the right road for meds (regarding class of meds)

    Adherence: It was NOT a good week.

    Longer version

    Since MFP deleted my prior post from the 4th, I don't really feel that I can share much here. I guess we'll say that it wasn't as ugly on the mental health front this last week, but I have been absolutely RAVENOUS. I have binged multiple times, weight gain thankfully somewhat limited in gaining thanks to intermittent fasting. But I am still looking to end up around 1.5 pounds of actual gain for the week, so long as today doesn't go off track. If I can't get the eating/drive under control, I will have to try yet another med. Hopefully if that has to happen, staying in the same family of meds should hopefully carry over what gain has been made there.

    I won't bother with specifics of macro/commitments/goals this week. My motivation to share is very low based on the deletion of my prior post. I doubt many, if any, read through that anyway. Whatever. Sigh.

    I am pleased to report that I have gotten a bit more into my music again, and have been able to enjoy my strength workouts a bit more as well. I will try to focus more on those as I keep going, regardless of how the meds go.

    My targets/commitments/goals:
    Current macro targets:

    Minimums:
    Protein: >=120 grams
    Carbs: >=25 grams, net >=10 grams
    Fat: 42 grams

    Fat to include EFAs: 1,080 mg EPA and 720 mg DHA all days.

    Commitments:

    1) Intake: >=1,000 kcal/day
    2) Exercise: >=30 minutes, 3 days/week
    3) Rest day(s): >=1/week
    4) Be accountable: logging intake and checking in on accountability threads.

    Goals:

    1) Strength training: 2+ days/week
    2) Exercise (any): >=30 minutes, 6 days/week
    3) [ON HOLD] Indoor rowing (**with good form**): 1,000 meters 3 days/week
    4) Musical instrument practice: >=10 min, 3 days/week
    5) Intake: <= 2,300 kcal per day

    My Stats:

    5'1" Female
    Restarting weight: 252
    MFP restart weight: 242.7
    Original goal: 140 lbs
    Current goal: 21.5% body fat (currently estimated at 140 lbs). Aiming to be at this point by 2020/12/05.

    Finally back into the app. I hope the accessibility issues are gone for now. I have lost almost all motivation with food. I have been walking twice a day 45 minutes each time but eating like a piggy. I no longer use the gym which was always kept me on track. Don’t mean to be a downer just dealing with reality sucks🤭

    I'm baaaaackkk! Wow... what is this world coming to? I gotta say that I have been struggling with the isolation of the pandemic. I'm working from home and ... confession time... I've backslid to stress eating. Every day and every week I battle with myself in trying to get it under control. I am at 199 today... I have been up and down around this number for the whole pandemic. At this point, I just really want to see 195 on the scale. I hope everyone has been good and I miss this group. It's a more healthy thing to log onto than FB or Instagram. I'll be back more.

    Hope you all are doing well and keeping healthy!

    I started on this journey in 2010 at 287 pounds. I lost and gained back (plus some) over and over again. In November 2019 I was diagnosed with diabetes and struggled with hypertension. The tipping point was when I was sent to the cardiologist due to arrhythmias. Just before Christmas, I made a decision to change my life.

    August update

    GW 199 (first goal)

    8/27 - 249 - down 3 pounds

    I've been exercising a little more - could do better.

    Hoping everyone else is doing ok. Diabetes is in check. A1C consistently around 6.4 which they now consider pre-diabetic. But fact remains, it's low because of the diet AND medicine. Would like to get off the medicine.

    Can't believe pandemic restrictions still going on 6 months now. I don't want to get use to it. Praying for a cure/vaccination soon.

    Take care everyone - keep tracking and exercising!

    Tuesday - Goals:
    CW/HW: 211 lbs
    GW: 120lbs

    My goal for this week is to stick to my workout schedule and not miss a workout this week. For me, a few minutes after beginning a workout, I feel like there is no point to what I’m doing and that my form/effort is crap so I might as well stop. I want to get out of my headspace and get past putting myself down before I even try.

    Also my goal for this week is to reorganize my baby’s clothes (put away summer clothes, out with autumn clothes) and doing some personal maintenance on myself lol (quarantine life).

    Anyone with similar goals? How about some of your goals? Would love to hear them

    Hey Everyone! I have walked 45 mins almost everyday day since fostering Zeus. Big improvement from sitting on my butt all day most days. I slipped with getting eating on track this week all the cold weather I just want to eat out.
