    @Chinkiri Could it be that women gravitate towards the group/community aspect more than men when it comes to weight loss, which is a common goal on MFP?

    About your post from yesterday, I also like the time differences, but we are actually in the same time zone!
    I post after dinner, which is usually early even by German standards (some stereotypes cannot be denied hehe).
    Ici, on mange à l'heure des poules (= Here, we eat at the time of the chickens)! ^^[/quote]

    Impressed with your French idiom! My Mum, in the Netherlands, still always eats her 'dinner' between 5.30 and 6.30pm. I have to calculate phone calls to my Dutch friends and relatives until well after 8 pm, which is my French dinner time.

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes. Weight training + 1.5 mile treadmill walk/shuffle. (Can’t call it jogging at 4mi/hour. )
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes

    Next month, I may add additional exercise goals so I don’t fall back to the minimum 20 minutes as often: distance goals or intensity as measured by the fitness tracker.

    Yes, yes and yes
    Walking on treadmill (double) and a little bit of stretching.
    Two very tough days in a row at work but still hanging in there.

    Maddie, I just recently started listening to the Half Size Me podcast. I am in the middle of listening to my second podcast with her but am appreciating what she has to share.

    Start weight, January 1, 2021: 132.0
    December 1, 2020 – 135.6
    November 6, 2020 – 140.8
    October 2, 2020 – 147.8
    September, 14, 2020 – 153.0

    My calorie rule for January UAC
    Defining, for myself more than anything, what is the definition of my daily calorie goal. For Oct and Nov, I used 1430 and not eating back exercise. December, I raised that to 1480 with no additional calories for exercise. For January, I am going to try a blended rule; either Food calories under 1480, or Net calories (ie Food minus exercise) under 1200. So, if my exercise burns less than 280 on a given day, there is no added calories. BUT, if I exercise more, I have the option additional food OR if I overeat, I have the option of exercising more to not use a pass day. This flexibility was not something I allowed in my previous rounds. Once I exceeded my goal calories, regardless of my exercise burn. Also, I am defining that I am using the MFP estimate for the caloric burn from exercise. I know I could get different numbers elsewhere, but I am going to use only the one source – good or bad.

    @SummerSkier your flower looks huge and beautiful compared to mine
    xovp3xdyg8ra.jpg

    But yours is beautiful too. Amaryllis are just So cheery this time of year. Mine was a gift from a friend. I have 6 more outside that I decided NOT to force this year and will see if they bloom in the spring or not. Some bulbs I have kept for several years but it is difficult in Tx to force them since we rarely get enough freezes.

    Maddie, I just recently started listening to the Half Size Me podcast. I am in the middle of listening to my second podcast with her but am appreciating what she has to share.

    Awesome! I find she is particularly good when talking about
    1) what I posted above
    2) treating vacations as a separate task (and she has great strategies)
    3) that if we lose our way as we are losing & regain. Immediately focus on maintaining that heavier weight. Once stabilized, then resume dieting. It stops the “I gained all my weight back”

    I find my walks fly by when I remember to listen to her!

    @MadisonMolly2017 I really like #3 below regarding the Half Size Me podcast. IMHO that is some of the best advice I've ever seen on MFP--and I've been on here 9.5 years. I just wish I had seen it 3 years ago...or is 30 years ago...
