    I have done miserably this month. Caregiver for my aunt (all about her, not me) big family event this past weekend. Tomorrow I meet with the surgeon about knee replacements. Gotta get busy, make good decisions and be committed to ME for awhile. I WANT this - I really do!

    Thanks for the warm welcome all. I'm really excited by this group idea and the different teams. Just so I understand this - we're all going to move to a new thread at the start of July and I'll start weighing in then - is that right?

    Sorry guys. This is why doing a food diary helps me so much. Did not log food this past week and it shows. Will try and do better this week!!!

    Like, ouch, is all I can say but I am not surprised. Father's Day bbq, and another bbq, I tried not to overdo it but this is the result.

    So what is that you are all good at but don't like to say - you know like when I peel the entire label off a bottle of beer in one piece and you feel really chuffed but know everyone else will be "What are you even doing?".

    I tried to come up with a good example @TheMrWobbly and realized I’m either completely lacking in talent 🙃 or too proud of all my useless skills ☺️!

    Clearly I need more excitement in my life since some of my reflections this week went like this: [While folding laundry], Damn, I’m good at folding fitted sheets 🤩 but nobody really appreciates my talent 🤨… or, I got really good at all those 70’s childhood games (e.g., jump rope, pogo stick, hula hoop, roller skating, marbles, etc.) 😎 but who really cares. I think the closest example might have been commiserating with my son about the way all the teachers assign heavy assignments at the same time in the semester and I thought, “ I came up with some good excuses for late assignments 😊🙄!

    I’m curious if anyone else can top your beer label peeling example. That’s quite impressive and tough to beat!

    Met with surgeon about knee replacement. He wants 4 weeks of therapy before surgery to increase flexion. My knees only bend to 85 degrees. My sisters is 115 degrees. He also wants my BMI at 45 or less..... so that's 38 pounds!

    Possible I may not get surgery done this year... want both done in same calendar year.

    Hmm......

    Anything wrong with waiting till next year for the surgery? Are you in too much pain? My mom neededcknee replacement surgery, and she improved her flexibility a lot via yoga, and strengthened her core a lot through strength training, and a lot of the pain went away by itself.

    Welcome @tarunnurat! - My mother also had to prepare for her knee replacement surgery by exercising. The doctor recommended some seated exercise pedals and she started with just a minute or two, gradually increasing the time while building the new habit of using the machine. She had a lot of success with her surgery and is considering a knee replacement for the other knee now.

    Best wishes for your preparation and surgery @dew11252!

    Note: I’m visiting family in Boston and using a different scale than my home scale, so I hope I don’t register a gain next week. The scale actually recorded 132.0 today but I added .5 because it’s been a long time since I’ve lost 2.0 in a week. I think it might be good to have a ‘buffer’ in case the scales are too different.

    I hope you all are having a good week and making progress toward your goals.

    I've been sitting at the same weight for 3 weeks now. I'm hoping tomorrow's weigh in will show some movement. I've been tracking and I've upped my walking. I'd like to go into July a bit lower number.We'll see.
