    @Dory_42 it is SO hard when our loved pets are failing. Hope that you have a wonderful weekend with your old boy. <<<hugs>>>

    My NSV is that today officially I realized after 46 years, the scale does no longer rule my life. I can't count how many years I always got up, had coffee, ran, showered and then WEIGHED always with an eye to being the lowest weight I could be and consistency. No way to vary the routine. Not even possible to wash my hair in the shower because well wet head = pounds right? Well, I stopped weighing all the time last June. I do weigh occasionally but it's not mandatory and the scale no longer sets the mood for the entire day.

    So that said. Now I am FREE to get up and drink my coffee, have some breakfast, do other things and after it warms up go for my run. I have told myself for years if I did not run FIRST thing I would never do it but turns out that was the scale talking. :|

    My running will only improve as I give myself permission to break those rediculous rules I set for myself so many years ago.

    This is by far the BEST NSV that I have read thus far! @RangerRickL this one NEEDS to be the start of tomorrow's day! I, too, have felt the way you have, SummerSkier! I too, no longer let that scale define my success! What a WONDERFUL feeling it is to be free of that insanity and pure madness! Thank you so much for your post and honesty! Your friendship has helped many people in the UAC today, in case you didn't realize! Thanks again, Gina! :)

    had the day off but had to keep on the grind!

    exercise: flexibility, a 2.5 mi walk and some cool down did it for me!
    budget: not an issue today as my appetite hasn’t been there sadly.
    tracking: ez pz!

    hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend!

    @donna25trinity Don't beat yourself up about overeating when visitors come to your home! We all have experienced this too! We start with great intentions, and then somehow, we have failed. YOU did NOT fail! You realized this is a mistake you often make, and now you are thinking about what you can do to change this! Bravo to you! Cheer up, let it go, get back to the grind!

    @Dory_42 I am so sorry to hear the doggie is not doing well still! It also sucks that the vet is closed until Monday! It is tough to wait when it concerns our beloved pets, our family! My prayers and thoughts for a good outcome!

    @Chinkir Welcome to the group, or should say welcome back! I was not in the group when you last were! My name is Gina. Welcome! I just wanted to point out that your post was VERY inspiring! You are out of town, healthy food choices are scarce, but you managed to choose an option that was pretty darn healthy and tried to calculate calories best as you could! I am PROUD of you!

    @Bovaryoo Sorry that you are experiencing Vertigo! I, too, have had Vertigo! If one has not had it, I don't wish it on anyone! Praying that yours doesn't last too long and you can get back to your normal self!

    I just got some spare time today while the hubby is out at the barn ( not an actual barn, but a huge pull barn where he builds hotrods and is doing some work on our new hotrod), and I can spend some time reading your posts and commenting on them. I do read ALL posts eventually, but I don't always get the time that day to do so! Commenting on posts also helps me practice my writing skills. My dream to become a published author someday! I also would LOVE to add more of you to my friend's list! I seem not to know how to do this very well! So if you do, want to be friends also, can you please send me the request?
