    I am so sorry to hear that. I hope he is able to get a treatment plan that works to kick the cancers butt. Hang in there <3

    @LauriWrobo - I’m joining others here to give you strength to support your husband. It’s so difficult to see those we love in pain so please lean on this group as much as you need. Cancer research has come so far and I’m wishing you all the best as you meet with the oncologist.

    Maintenance weigh-in

    Name: PatriceFitnessPal
    Weigh-in day: Thursday
    PW: 125.2
    CW: 125.4

    SW: 168
    TLD: 42.6

    I’ve been making a lot of progress on my decluttering goal. I went through all my clothes and boxed up a very limited number of my favorite items that no longer fit. I’m going to keep them for one year while I practice maintaining my weight between 120-130.

    I’m also donating items that are still in good shape but no longer fit as part of our effort to downsize now that both adult children are living on their college campuses. We’re not quite ‘empty nesters’ yet, but we finally have some time to part with items we no longer use, etc.

    For December, my project goal is to reduce, reuse, or recycle something for every day of the month until we leave for our family vacation on December 25th. For example, I donated ONE cello that my younger son outgrew to the local middle school on 12/1 and TWO violins that my older son no longer plays went to the high school on 12/2. On 12/3, I delivered THREE pant suits to a group that supports women reentering the workforce, etc. It’s like a reverse “12 Days of Christmas” or an ‘advent calendar’ for those who know the song and celebrate the holiday.

    We take a trip or share an experience instead of exchanging gifts but there are a couple of items that I plan to buy for my sons because they are worn and need updating. I guess I’ll add ‘replace’ to the typical 3 R’s above. Usually, my favorite is ‘resist’ because it’s easier for me to eliminate at the point of purchase. I don’t know why it’s so emotional for me to get rid of things I know ‘weigh me down’ but it takes a lot of my time and energy!

    The good news is that it’s getting easier with practice, just like weight loss. I’m getting better at not letting ‘perfect’ get in the way of ‘good’ but I still feel the strange need to donate items to ‘just the right person or group.’ 🤨🙄😬

    Do you have any ‘quirks’ or habits that interfere with your exercise, nutrition, or other health and wellness goals?

    Best wishes in moving beyond any of your own personal quirks that get in the way of your goals!

    @jessicakrall8 I’ve found that I do best and stay most accountable on MFP when I’m as anonymous as possible, so there’s no temptation to sugar coat things in case someone somehow connects my profile to me in real life. That’s why I don’t even share the city I’m located, I don’t have a face photo and I have never shared my first name here. I hope this can be respected in the step challenge.

    @hipari Understood. I'll just leave it blank.

    @justanotherloser007 may I ask, how tall are you and what’s your goal weight for maintenance? I’m curious, as 175lbs is pretty much my goal weight. It’s interesting to see how different goals people have. I absolutely agree with your thought of keeping it off rather than losing fast! I’ve always thought I’d rather only lose a little bit for good than go back and forth with a lot of weight. Also hoping everything works out with your in-laws.

    I’m excited for the weekend - I actually slept a full 8 hours last night (woke up to pump in the middle, of course) and went for lunch with a friend. Now I’m home, dinner groceries for tonight shopped, and I’m ready to welcome the weekend. My new Christmas tree is being delivered today, I had to order a new one because we moved last December and my old tree is too small for the new apartment. We are having a movie night tonight, and tomorrow there’s two of us on baby duty and I can spend some time doing Christmas stuff etc.

    I rowed almost everyday over the past week, but was lax on my diet.
