      Just for today, Friday October 2nd, I will:

      •Pick up groceries ✅
      •Purchase and Meet client for drop off of charitable donation- moved to tomorrow afternoon
      •Basic cleanup before house keeper comes for deep cleaning✅ House keeper did an amazing job too!!
      •Walk- Same distance as yesterday✅ Fit this in even though I almost didn’t have the time. But my watch battery died during my walk so it didn’t record it :-( I really wanted to close those rings.
      •Make appointment for last step in licensure requirements ✅ Made, but the office is super busy and I can’t get in until Oct. 16th :-(
      •Call about preordering husbands Christmas gift✅ Call made, need to keep checking back.
      •Pay bills for October❌
      •Love myself and be kind to myself; especially if I do not get everything done on this list today.✅ This was hard today. I’m really struggling with body image as I’m not where I want to be,
      Or where I’ve always been. But, I gentl reminded myself that I just had a baby 3 weeks ago, and I’ve lost 30 pounds since then...I’m doing good and I will get where I want to be as long as I keep doing what I’m doing.


      I hope everyone else had a fabulous Friday!

      Today is dreary, cloudy, chilly & we may have some rain. Temps will remain in the 40s; normally highs in the 60s this time of year. Sometimes I let weather dictate my mood. True but silly, because there's nothing I can do to change it. Heard a great song on the car radio this morning, singing "it's a great day if I let it". What a wonderful way to think about things! Even so, I think I'm taking a rest day and not walking dog. Tomorrow.

      Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

      Age 62, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
      GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
      GW #2: 145 normal BMI
      UG maintain: 145 - 150 (need to be realistic)

      11/5/15 = 195.0 joined MFP with no real plan except It's. Not. A. Diet.
      1/10/17 = 185.5 clearly not a regular on MFP / joined JFT, best group ever! :smiley:
      5/31/17 = 180.5 two end of month celebrations / committed to posting weekly weigh-in
      06/03 = 177.5
      06/10 = 179.5 pre-10K spaghetti supper night before
      06/17 = 179.5 numerous meals away from home, several occasions w/ alcohol, happy no gain
      06/24 = 178.0 fluctuated during week, but ended ok
      07/01 = 176.0 Yay!!! Achieved June goal to stay <180
      07/08 = 177.5 oops
      07/15 = 176.5
      07/22 = 175.0
      07/29 = 174.0 saw at least one daily w-i below 174
      08/05 = 174.5 dined out for Girls Day Out & ate Dad's cooking & baking
      08/12 = 173.5 scale flirted with even lower numbers on daily weigh-ins
      08/19 = 173.5 had couple of high calorie days
      08/26 = 172.0 kind of a surprise
      09/02/17 = 170.0 Woohoo! Officially overweight, not obese :smiley:
      09/09 = 171.5 backsliding, ack!
      09/16/17 = 169.5 yay, the middle number is a six!
      09/23 = 168.5 have lots challenges in upcoming week
      09/30 = 167.0 met Sept goal to stay under 170
      10/07 = 166.0
      10/14 = 166.5 dined out 2 days with adult beverages plus wine & cheesecake at spa
      10/21/17 = 166.5 dined out 2 days plus food day in office / no gain is good [joined Just Give Me 10 Days challenge (daily w/i)]
      10/28 = 164.5 very active week & watched CICO / reached October goal of 165
      11/04 = 163.0 wow, really surprised at this, daily fluctuations very up and down this week
      11/11 = 164.5 this is temporary b/c very high sodium yesterday
      11/18 = 162.0 big surprise, especially b/c I weigh myself daily and didn't see this all week
      11/25 = 163.0 no surprise after 2 no-logging-food days (parade day and Thanksgiving), just glad not worse
      12/02 = 161.0 Jingle Bell 5K day / 44:37 chip time & ave. pace 14:22 & very happy!
      12/09/17 = 158.5 first time in 10 years my weight is 1-5-anything! :D
      12/16 = 158.0 no work parties or food days & stuck with CICO
      12/23 = 157.5 no "workouts" but shoveled snow & snowshoed, busy with Christmas preparations

      01/13 = 157.0 big surprise! Yesterday evening, walked in Frenzy on the Fox 5K in 47:26 & pace 15:19. Very happy with my time, wore layers of clothes in 10 degrees & NNW 12 mph wind, fun event.
      01/20 = 156.5
      01/27 = 156.5 maintaining / not a bad thing
      02/03 = sick / no weigh in
      02/10 = 152.5 unhealthy loss due to illness / I know weight will go back up & I'm totally fine with that
      02/17/18 = 153.0 thrilled with annual physical on 2/15/18: BP 110/68, pulse 64 and BMI 26.14 :star:
      02/24 = 154.0 little out of control last week, but at goal for the month
      03/03 = 155.5 oops / still lower than before I was sick
      03/10 = 153.5 back on track
      03/17 = 152.5
      03/24 = 153.0 evening snacks & two days straight of 8 hr seminars (+ lots of sitting)
      03/31 = 153.5 pre-10K spaghetti supper night before / Badger State Brewing 10K 1:30:28.82 and average pace 14:35 :smiley:
      04/07 = 154.5 ack ~ ate Easter candy most evenings

      04/28 = 152.0
      05/05 = 153.5 kinda stalled three months + feeling hungry more often ~ since w/i 10# of goal, changed MFP setting to lose 1/2 lb. per week & see how it goes
      05/12 = 153.5 ok with this ~ think changing my MFP setting, and having more net calories to play with, is agreeing with me ~ I'm not so hungry all the time
      05/19 = 154.0 drinks (2 margaritas) & dinner w/ BFF night before + enjoyed everything!
      05/26/18 = 153.0 Health Risk Assessment 5/15/18 ~ BMI 25.6 :star:

      JFT Friday 2nd October

      Log everything yes
      Stay in the green yes
      Walk only 20 minutes, made myself as don't want to get out of the habit
      Gardening no time
      Load car yes
      Print work stuff for tomorrow yes
      Work phone calls/emails yes
      Babysitting yes
      Back exercises no

      I resorted to "comfort eating" yesterday. For a couple of reasons, my Dad has not moved to a care home but is still in hospital. And they've just said we are now allowed to visit. I went to see him yesterday and he has deteriorated so much. It was awful seeing how bad he was, and I know because we talked about it that this is the very thing he really didn't want. I have 2 parents who want to die. As soon as I got home I made a mug of tea and cut a slice of cake. Don't normally have cake in the house, but this was for a birthday. Shocking how quickly I can go back to mindless eating!
      I'm not going to keep mentioning it on here, but if you see me going into the red regularly that's why. I'm hoping if I keep reading/posting here that I can stay in the green most days. I'll be annoyed with myself if I regain.

      It's almost 9pm on Saturday so too late to set goals today. I'm home and warm and cosy after a horrible drive in torrential rain with lots of flooding on the roads. I stopped at the shop and bought cake and crisps, oops.

      @littleblackskirt sending you big hugs. I have an understanding of how sad and difficult things are for you at the moment. It’s so hard seeing parents struggle and being powerless to do much to change things for them. Don’t feel guilty about the cake.

        Oh .. my heart breaks for what you are going through. It is so difficult to see our parents suffer, and especially to have both parents suffering. And this covid stuff makes all this so very much harder. All I can do is give you hugs, and know that you are in my prayers and thoughts. As Bex said to me ... right now, there is so much on your plate to worry about. Of course you would give into eating something for "comfort". Its what we know to do. Hugs again .. please keep posting, and keep us up to date on your parents. <3<3<3
