    Thank you @jm216 , the sleep helped somewhat, but still feeling some after effects. I took another dose last night, which gives me insomnia, so I was up until 5, slept to about 9am. Once I get my wits about me, have plans to go to the store & get a pedi.

    Decided that I'm not going to "diet" per se, just get into the logging habit again, so I logged again yesterday even if there was no walk. 687 cals under, not starving myself, I honestly wasn't hungry yesterday.

    Slept a bunch between last night & this morning, feeling better! Logged my extremely poor food choices for yesterday - my plan for the day was not the universe's plan! - then took the "pudgy puppy"* out for his walk. Decided on the spur of the moment to turn that into a walk walk.

    12/1 - logged, under cals
    12/2 - logged, under cals
    12/3 - logged, under cals
    12/4 - walk


    * "Pudgy Puppy" is aka Jax, my 2 1/2 year old Mini Aussie/Beagle/Attention Hound mix. His is a few pounds overweight, so longer walks do him some good, too.

    Of course, the evening of Nov 30, one of my headaches started. I suffer from clinical migraines, and, unfortunately, even with all my medication, they last for several days. Even today, I'm struggling with tiredness and head pain, but I had to come to class this morning and I'm sticking it out at my work. (knees also acting up..hmmm, is there a front somewhere planning to come through? Snow maybe?)

    Was not able to go on my walk yesterday like I planned, but I DID manage to log my poor food choices, and I was still 393 cals under. Didn't wear my Garmin watch as I figured it wasn't worth it, let it charge. Logging today, trying to keep with my goal!

    Ugh, I get migraines too, and they derail any lovely weight-loss streak I manage to put together. Carbs help me, as does the act of chewing, and between the drugs and the pain I don't/can't make good choices. The best I hope for is to get back on track after, so I wish the same for you and hope the pain eases soon.

    🌲December Challenge🌲

    Highest weight: 234
    Current weight: 211.3

    September weight lost: 6 pounds
    October weight lost: .2 pound gain
    November weight lost: 5 pounds

    December weight lost so far: 3.3 pound gain

    ❤️My new December goal is to maintain. I’d love to lose a pound or 2, but maintenance is more achievable during This crazy but fun month.❤️

    December 1—208 pounds…Here we go!

    December 3—208.1 pounds… there it goes up…Popeyes chicken sandwich, mashed potatoes, and Mac and cheese last night for dinner. I know better than to eat that much at night. Feeling stuffed this morning and needing to drink a gallon of water to quench my thirst. Logged it…Acknowledged it… and moving forward. Making a big salad for lunch! 🥗 Happy Day 3!
