    Struggling a bit, too. No idea why all of a sudden. I’m continuing to exercise, track all food, and am now trying different ways of spreading my food throughout the day...also dug out my hot teas & some throw blankets.

    Thank you @mtaratoot !
    Since you are a numbers guy...
    I hit my high wt in 2020 on Jan 8
    Today, wt popped up - hopefully for my high wt in 2021 (but >7 lbs lower!!!) curtailing things because I don’t want to have to lose wt again!

    Hope you are well! And Happy ‘22!

    This is Donna. You know me from Just give me 10 days. If it is okay for me to jump in, here are my very sad stats. My climb back up in weight began primarily from the holidays at the end of 2019/beginning of 2020. They really started to climb after the sad death of my sister in April. I spiraled out of control.

    Now it is time to get the control back. I have zero confidence in myself and am newly retired so I have a lot less movement than before. It has been a long time since I have seen the numbers make a substantial turn downward but I am willing to try again. I need to work on my resolve and my commitment to my health again. The battle, at this point, is as much with my mind as it is with my body. And everything is complicated with my diabetes.

    However, I am here and I want to try to challenge myself and this challenge looks like it will help. Thanks for the opportunity!

    @deepwoodslady
    Yes, I know you!!
    Learn from my mistake - after a tragic death of a beloved sibling & his entire family, I ate & ate, getting to my highest weight, having to begin taking blood pressure meds & statins for cholesterol. I wanted to numb the pain & I automatically used eating out. I mistakenly felt cared for by food, by the waiters & I wasn’t at home dwelling on the sadness.

    I did not realize grief is emotional AND physical. Sadly, my actions made previous kidney issues get very serious. As you know I eventually needed a kidney transplant & now have to be very careful of germs (and always will need to be) much like COVID precautions. Had to give up teaching my beloved students.

    What I wish I had done? Not tried to deal with it all by myself. (I didn’t want to bring sadness to my school, my friends, etc. Now, I’ve learned that they all knew all along, but thought I didn’t want to talk about it.)

    I wish I’d Sought grief counseling & even PTSD counseling...

    I wish someone had sat me down and said he/they would not want you ruining your health & creating even more victims.

    I wish someone had said “how can I help you?”

    I wish I had asked 3 people to each walk with me once a week.

    I wish someone had gifted me some exercise shoes/clothes.

    I wish someone had suggested we get a weekly fruit/veg box delivered.

    I wish someone had sat me down & had “The Talk” with me.

    I wish someone had said, “How about you just try to maintain this month?” [This is what I finally did. I realized I was gaining 2lbs a month, or 500 extra calories a day. I basically told myself “even if you maintain, you are basically losing 2lbs.

    So, once I was maintaining. Then I tried Very Small goals.

    Eventually started weighing food to get portion sizes down. Eating out less often etc.

    The KEY to all of this is to figure out WHY you want to be healthy. Like deep down. My Big Why worked for me: “To be as healthy as I can be so I can ACTIVELY interact for as LONG as possible with my husband & son.”

    Every time I even think of faltering, I think of that Big Why, make a baby habit change, and stay healthy.

    Note: you have maintained the past 3 months...
    Do you feel like maintaining the rest of January?
    Perhaps take 2 short walks each day with your camera phone! Makes it more fun. Also podcasts like Half Size Me are very empowering. I also call friends and listen to music. Make it Me Time & LOTS of fun!!

    😘

    Thanks for sharing your story, some of which I did remember.


    I need to keep my weight in check to keep my breast cancer from returning. I'm currently in remission. My cancer is estrogen fed and estrogen is stored in your fat cells after menopause. The fatter I am, the likely I will come out of remission.

    I also need to lose weight to better control my type 2 diabetes which is dramatically out of control.

    My number 1 reason though, is to stay healthy and alive as long as I possibly can so I can continue to help and teach my 24 year old autistic son who lives with me. He needs many more skills before he could ever be independent.

    I will try to focus on these points as much as possible.

    Sounds really great, Donna! So many great reasons! You CAN do this! Gradually makes it easier & less painful, I found, and gives us more time to solidify our new way of life.

    THESE days right NOW (Jan 16-20) are why I’ve posted here all this time. I am working HARD to keep scale under 156, so it doesn’t rise like it did this time in Jan/Feb. I am implementing changes earlier, knowing I don’t want my weight to go up.

    Hoping to have this “under control” very soon.
