    Thanks @ashleycarole86 for your great insights! We were using boxed services but I found it too challenging when I was starting out. Thinking about maybe restarting and this is absolutely who I’d do it now that I have a bit more experience.

    Yes — this was my first opening post! Thank you for your encouragement! 🥰

    Thanks for sharing your experience with tracking @Caroline_slowandsteady I had hoped you would as you have some great insights and creative solutions that helped me and could help others. Family visiting — so challenging, in so many ways. For me it can be a bit like holiday meals — I end up eating things I don’t even really like, to say nothing of the increased wine consumption that is sometimes “necessary”.

    Wishing you a good weekend and thank you for your encouragement 🥰

    Love all the swimming you get in @ideas2 – we just had some Covid mandatory double vax changes announced here for civic indoor recreational facilities and when they go into effect, I fully intend to be back in the water. 💦💦💦

    I know for certain that @mrs_hoffer shared this approach to “deferred treats” and it was a 💡 moment for me (which I have incorporated as needed since). I wasn’t sure if it should/could be credited to others too but I know I am grateful to Teresa for posting her approach. Yes — ‘snaccident’ is the term we use in our home. Mostly now in the context, “I feel a snaccident coming on — let’s go for a walk”…. 🥰

    Pass day for me (1/3).

    Hubby and daughters threw a surprise party for my birthday and it was sooooo wonderful to see many friends, some I hadn't seen in a year or so. I did moderate my eating, but definitely over calories. I suspect I might be using all my pass days the next couple of days as we're headed to San Francisco for the weekend and have some celebratory meals planned.

    Thank goodness I did my exercise this morning, so I was only about 50 calories over my budget, but there was a lot of guessing about what I ate given that it was a catered, so I could be wildly under in my estimating of calories.

    Happy birthday to you @enlightenme3 🎉🥳🎈🎁 Sounds like your husband and daughters did a great job creating a beautiful celebration of you! Have a wonderful time in San Francisco 🌁🌉 and enjoy all the special moments. 🥰

    Exercise -Yes - 40 min walk
    Under calorie budget (1650)? Yes 1575
    Tracked everything I ate and drank? Yes

    Saying no to the extra helping and thinking about my calories is a big change for me. Also, making an effort to get that 20 minutes exercise on a cold day when I am tired takes all I have some days. I will probably have to cut my calories some day soon, but not yet.
