    💐April Challenge💐

    Excited to keep participating in these monthly challenges! I’ve lost 11 pounds since joining in October. I’ve been roughly maintaining at 153 last month. My focus this month is training for a 5K in June and work to see if I can hit 149 this month.

    Heaviest weight: 165
    Current weight: 152

    April weight lost so far: 0

    Daily Goals:

    🌱Run for 45 minutes on weekdays
    🌱Do long runs on Saturdays
    🌱Go to Zumba on Sundays
    🌱Take rest days as needed
    🌱Drink 8 glasses of water
    🌱Portion control when going out to eat
    🌱Eat mindfully
    🌱Track weight and log

    April 1: 152 (home cooked)
    April 2: 151 (went out)
    April 3: 153 (went out/ Zumba)
    April 4: 153 (home cooked/ ran 45m)
    April 5: 153 (home cooked)
    April 6: 152 (went out)
    April 7: 152 (went out)
    April 8: 153 (home cooked)
    April 9: 153 (went out/ long run 1hr)
    April 10: 153 (went out)
    April 11: 152 (went out/ ran 45m)

    Starting to get back on track! I can see I’m not gonna meet my original my goal. Going to readjust and see if I can get back to 152 and then maybe see 151 again. Will also focus on restricting how much I go out next month. It’s been a tough month but I’m still sticking with it!

    💐April Challenge💐

    My name is Mary. I participated in the monthly challenges last fall. Back home and would like to start again. A couple reasons why I like this challenge and group is because of self awareness and accountability. I find support in the groups updates and feedbacks. I do hope I able to join this group again.

    Heaviest weight: 204 lbs (I was probably heavier but did not have the courage to step on the scale.)
    Current weight: 180 lbs

    April weight lost so far: ⬆️ +4 lbs

    Daily Goals:
    🌷start my day with meditation 🧘‍♀️
    🌷start my morning 🌄 with water🚰 and stepping on the treadmill
    🌷reduce my carbs and replace with proteins
    🌷end my day practicing gratitude🌠
    Weight loss goal 5lbs 🖐

    April 1: 180 lbs
    April 6: 180 lbs
    Wednesday is my usual weigh in time. I have been mindful of my calories but exercising could be better. I ended up binge watching Ozark so my evening gratitude was lacking also. Will work on the exercising and Ozark is done.

    April 13: 182 lbs ⬇️⬇️ Well not back to my original weight but I will take it. It helps to have yardwork to add in for extra activity. Keep my nose to the grindstone. The month is halfway over.

    April 20: 183 lbs ⬇️⬇️
    April 21: 184 lbs⬆️

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s



    Starting Weight (from March 31, 2022): 199.6
    Goal: 194.6 (Five lb Loss)

    **************************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME************************************

    04/16……201.8…..(Trend Weight 201.3)….. Better on the scale today but still overeating in the late night hours, sometimes even bingeing. Daytime meals are good however. With my lack of true exercise, I’ve got to watch those calories! I am happy to see a drop on the scale. Working to get back under 200 consistently is my first short term goal at this point.

    04/17.…..203.4…..(Trend Weight 201.5)….. A good day yesterday dietary-wise. However, day 2 of no TMI and a serious lack of steps yesterday. Gotta burn what you eat!

    04/18.…..204.4…..(Trend Weight 201.8)….. Did someone say Easter Dinner?

    04/19.…..199.2…..(Trend Weight 201.5)….. We went out for Easter Dinner and to see the Easter Bunny and find eggs with DGS #4 because of a lack of kitchen during my reno. I felt like I ate a normal amount and did not even finish. Yesterday (Monday) I was so swollen in my calves and ankles and stomach that I was miserable. I pushed water and only got in my 250 steps 3 times out of 13 on my fitbit. Barely over 3000 steps for the day. On the couch all day with headache and miserable uncomfortable swelling. My doctor recently gave me a water pill to help aid my heart until I see the cardiologist June 1st. It is prescribed to take 2-3 times a week which is why I sometimes feel my weight will go up & down. I took the pill yesterday and those steps are from going back & forth potty. I also took a magnesium pill to help with TMI because it had been a few days. Both worked. Imagine my shock to see over 5 ½ pounds down overnight when I was so immobile! Glad to see it under 200! I feel much better today but I’m starving and my body wants to make up for the lesser amounts of food yesterday. I’ll choose wisely.

    04/20.…..200.8…..(Trend Weight 201.5)….. I think this is my weight and body adjusting after such a large drop on the scale yesterday. While I’m not happy with this number, it does feel correct and right.

    04/21.…..200.8…..(Trend Weight 201.4)….. Holding steady but need to see improvement. Very low level calorie burn yesterday. I’ve got to up my game as much as I safely can.

    🌱64 oz water minimum
    🌱Exercise at least 20 minutes a day
    🌱Track all my food
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal

    April 1: DNW (Off to see my mother in law and sister in law again today. Snow here in Ontario - feels like we're back in Alberta with this weird weather.)
    April 2: DNW
    April 3: 169 (Weighed on a friend's scale so it may not be super accurate but it gives me an indicator at least that things are relatively on track. Off for a couple days of more touristy activities before a bit more family time and our flight home.)
    April 4: DNW (Greetings from Niagara Falls. We are in the touristy part of our trip - having a blast! Off to some wineries today.)
    April 5: DNW
    April 6: DNW
    April 7: 171.6 (Back home from holidays and overall I'm happy with the minimal weight gain. I still have lessons learned from this vacation that I'll look to grow from for next time. It was a great time... back to busy times at home now.)
    April 8: 172.8 (Busy first day back at home running errands with my husband. We also took our dog that we missed SOOO much for a nice long walk at a park. One day of work and then the weekend!)
    April 9: 173 (Busy getting my basement ready for my Mom's arrival. Also did two long walks yesterday and a Peloton ride. Loving the spring weather.)
    April 10: 172.4 (Up early to go to the landfill before my Mom moves in this afternoon. Going to stop for breakfast and walk our dog too.)
    April 11: 173.6 (Return to office in the morning. Feeling very out of practice. Wish me luck! Lunch is all packed and ready to go.)
    April 12: 172.4 (Taxing day between going to the office and helping work on clearing the last of the things from my Mom's house before the sale goes through. Possibly one more night of that... we shall see. I did fit in a 30 minute Peloton ride for myself.)
    April 13: 170.8 (Mentally tired but physically I enjoyed a fantastic hard ride on the Peloton. My husband has been on the road for work all week so I look forward to having him back tomorrow.)
    April 14: 168.8 (So excited for the long weekend. It's snowing here tonight. My husband got home and we ran errands so I didn't ride the bike today. Back on tomorrow!)
    April 15: 167.2 (Going to take it easy around the house for the most part today I think. My husband is making us a nice steak dinner tonight. I will get on the Peloton too.)
    April 16: 167.6 (Today's activities will include a Peloton ride, a haircut, a walk with my dog, and a date night with my husband.)
    April 17: 167.6 (Love that I've held in my normal BMI range for three days now. Today was a full day of activity - a hike, some strength work, and a Peloton ride. Really enjoyed the day!)
    April 18: 168.6 (Even if you think you can't.... you can! Wishing everyone a good week after Easter fun.)
    April 19: 167.6 (Super snowy day here today. We got into downtown and back for work and had a yummy pork chop dinner. Waiting for my turn on the bike.)
    April 20: 167.6 (My body seems to love this number!! :) The massive dump of snow we got yesterday is starting to melt away but I'll likely be out to shovel after dinner before I get on the bike.)
    April 21: 166.4 (Walked over 15,000 steps today due to converting normally sedentary meetings to walking meetings. Also had an appointment with my doctor for the first time since I lost weight and he was very happy about my progress.)

    Current weight: 209.9

    April weight lost so far: up 1.8 pounds

    April 1: 208.1–Happy April Fools Day! I’m so excited my son is coming home to celebrate his 21st birthday! I’m making a taco bar with all the fixings including lots of veggies! 🍰 🌮
    Now it’s time for my outdoor adventure with Roxie! 🐕

    April 2: 209.2–Had a fun birthday party! Crazy to think my oldest is now 21. Wow does time fly!

    April 3: 210.4– the birthday treats are now over, so it’s back on track today. Back to basics, weighing food and pre logging.off to get my dance walk in this morning! We’ve got this! Happy Sunday!

    April 4: 209.1 Back on track! Feeling fabulous! The key to my success is my 10 minute morning exercise. 💃🏻 Happy Monday!

    April 5: 208.2 🐣 Back in the good groove! Trying out the “FlyLadyPlus” cleaning mobile app and pairing it with MFP. So far after a week I feel a little less overwhelmed with keeping up the house. The secret for most things in life is “progress not perfection” and short bursts of activity. It’s working! No… I’m not a paid spokesperson just a working mom trying to keep it together. 😆 Have a terrific Tuesday! Off to dance like no one is watching! 😂

    April 6: 207.4 Feeling off today. Gonna take it easy… it’s supposed to rain most of the day, so I won’t feel like I’m wasting a day off not being out in the yard. It’s the perfect day for catching up on laundry. Enjoy your Wednesday. ❤️

    April 7: 208.1 Feeling better today. 🙂. I’ll try to get in a Roxie walk in between rain clouds. ☔️ Happy Thursday! We took a nice long walk today, so Roxie will be sleeping most of the day. 🐾

    April 8: 207.4 Another rainy day, but the daffodils are popping up. ☔️🌼 It’s a good day to be at work… no guilt that I should be outside in the sunshine. Happy Friday!

    April 9: 207.5 Holding steady… feeling good. Happy Saturday! 🥰

    April 10: 208.1 was doing well until I ate 4 chocolate chip cookies before bed. I logged them disgustedly into my diary then decided to just move on. Can’t dwell on the past… only try to learn from it. Today is a new day and the sun is out!!☀️ Time to take Roxie for a walk. 🦮🌱

    April 11: 208.7…night snacking 😕Ah well, today is a new day. Just exercised so I’m starting off on the right foot. Happy Monday!

    April 12: 208.4… progress. 🥰

    April 13: 209.6… must… stop… stress… snacking. Hanging in there… by a thread

    April 14: 208.6 Happy Thursday! It’s a yard day today!!! 56 degrees and ☀️

    April 15: 209.1 Happy Good Friday & Happy Easter Weekend! Be kind to yourself.❤️
    April 16: 210.1
    April 17: 210.1 Happy Easter & Passover

    April 18: 209.4 focusing on Positivity, Persistence, Planning, Preparing, and Progress not Perfection this week. Embrace your Monday!
    April 19: 211.5
    April 20: 211.6 put together a Clicklist to pick up later today. Today is a reorganization day… getting ducks in a row 🦆 🦆 🦆 Planning meals in advance and at least one salad a day. Finally the snow is mostly gone after the spring snowstorm on Monday. The dog is ready for a walk, so I’ll chat with you all again soon. We’re in this together through the ups and downs. 🥰❤️❤️

    April 21: 210.2 let the slide 🛝 begin! Have a terrific Thursday… progress not perfection.

    April 22: Earth Day… 209.9.. in celebration of 🌎 Day, Roxie and I took a nice 18 minute walk and she met 2 new furry friends (doggos). Happy Earth Day friends!

    April 21: total stress eating day. We took our dog to the emergency vet hospital last night and she’s in the ICU with pneumonia. The house is so empty without her here.

    @Outdoorsy_Canadian

    Many prayers for your dog. You are taking such good care of her! Sending all the good vibes your way.

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s



    Starting Weight (from March 31, 2022): 199.6
    Goal: 194.6 (Five lb Loss)

    04/18.…..204.4…..(Trend Weight 201.8)….. Did someone say Easter Dinner?

    04/19.…..199.2…..(Trend Weight 201.5)….. We went out for Easter Dinner and to see the Easter Bunny and find eggs with DGS #4 because of a lack of kitchen during my reno. I felt like I ate a normal amount and did not even finish. Yesterday (Monday) I was so swollen in my calves and ankles and stomach that I was miserable. I pushed water and only got in my 250 steps 3 times out of 13 on my fitbit. Barely over 3000 steps for the day. On the couch all day with headache and miserable uncomfortable swelling. My doctor recently gave me a water pill to help aid my heart until I see the cardiologist June 1st. It is prescribed to take 2-3 times a week which is why I sometimes feel my weight will go up & down. I took the pill yesterday and those steps are from going back & forth potty. I also took a magnesium pill to help with TMI because it had been a few days. Both worked. Imagine my shock to see over 5 ½ pounds down overnight when I was so immobile! Glad to see it under 200! I feel much better today but I’m starving and my body wants to make up for the lesser amounts of food yesterday. I’ll choose wisely.

    04/20.…..200.8…..(Trend Weight 201.5)….. I think this is my weight and body adjusting after such a large drop on the scale yesterday. While I’m not happy with this number, it does feel correct and right.

    04/21.…..200.8…..(Trend Weight 201.4)….. Holding steady but need to see improvement. Very low level calorie burn yesterday. I’ve got to up my game as much as I safely can.

    04/22.…..200.2…..(Trend Weight 201.3)….. I am making some good choices for the meals. Snacks still need to be worked on. Dinner tomorrow with my daughter will be in the next town over and will spill over my allowances. I’ll have to make today an extra good day for compensation. Babysitting DGS #4 today so up & down the stairs I go!

    🌱Track all my food
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal

    April 1: DNW (Off to see my mother in law and sister in law again today. Snow here in Ontario - feels like we're back in Alberta with this weird weather.)
    April 2: DNW
    April 3: 169 (Weighed on a friend's scale so it may not be super accurate but it gives me an indicator at least that things are relatively on track. Off for a couple days of more touristy activities before a bit more family time and our flight home.)
    April 4: DNW (Greetings from Niagara Falls. We are in the touristy part of our trip - having a blast! Off to some wineries today.)
    April 5: DNW
    April 6: DNW
    April 7: 171.6 (Back home from holidays and overall I'm happy with the minimal weight gain. I still have lessons learned from this vacation that I'll look to grow from for next time. It was a great time... back to busy times at home now.)
    April 8: 172.8 (Busy first day back at home running errands with my husband. We also took our dog that we missed SOOO much for a nice long walk at a park. One day of work and then the weekend!)
    April 9: 173 (Busy getting my basement ready for my Mom's arrival. Also did two long walks yesterday and a Peloton ride. Loving the spring weather.)
    April 10: 172.4 (Up early to go to the landfill before my Mom moves in this afternoon. Going to stop for breakfast and walk our dog too.)
    April 11: 173.6 (Return to office in the morning. Feeling very out of practice. Wish me luck! Lunch is all packed and ready to go.)
    April 12: 172.4 (Taxing day between going to the office and helping work on clearing the last of the things from my Mom's house before the sale goes through. Possibly one more night of that... we shall see. I did fit in a 30 minute Peloton ride for myself.)
    April 13: 170.8 (Mentally tired but physically I enjoyed a fantastic hard ride on the Peloton. My husband has been on the road for work all week so I look forward to having him back tomorrow.)
    April 14: 168.8 (So excited for the long weekend. It's snowing here tonight. My husband got home and we ran errands so I didn't ride the bike today. Back on tomorrow!)
    April 15: 167.2 (Going to take it easy around the house for the most part today I think. My husband is making us a nice steak dinner tonight. I will get on the Peloton too.)
    April 16: 167.6 (Today's activities will include a Peloton ride, a haircut, a walk with my dog, and a date night with my husband.)
    April 17: 167.6 (Love that I've held in my normal BMI range for three days now. Today was a full day of activity - a hike, some strength work, and a Peloton ride. Really enjoyed the day!)
    April 18: 168.6 (Even if you think you can't.... you can! Wishing everyone a good week after Easter fun.)
    April 19: 167.6 (Super snowy day here today. We got into downtown and back for work and had a yummy pork chop dinner. Waiting for my turn on the bike.)
    April 20: 167.6 (My body seems to love this number!! :) The massive dump of snow we got yesterday is starting to melt away but I'll likely be out to shovel after dinner before I get on the bike.)
    April 21: 166.4 (Walked over 15,000 steps today due to converting normally sedentary meetings to walking meetings. Also had an appointment with my doctor for the first time since I lost weight and he was very happy about my progress.)
    April 22: 165 (Another massive snowfall this morning so I did some shoveling but it's starting to melt already. After work we have dinner at a friend's house but we're going to walk over. Hoping to fit in a Peloton ride yet today but time is tight.)

    Hi... I think I've rejoined the land of the living after being sick the past week. I didn't finish the March challenge because of that. I was heading the wrong way throughout March and hope to do better this month. Fingers crossed.

    Goals:
    ⚖️ weigh daily (starting tomorrow 4/4/22)
    * actually LOSE weight instead of gain it
    😅🚶‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♀️ get back out on my feet or on my bike for at least 20 minutes each day
    🥤 drink more water
    📚 me time, every day

    Highest Weight: Somewhere between 227-230... I don't know. I avoided the scale.
    Return to MFP after ~ 5-6 year absence (June 11, 2020) = 216.9
    Lowest weight since I started in June 2020 = 177.4 (9/19/21) - been climbing ever since...
    Final weight from last month's challenge (March 30, 2022) = 204.4
    Starting weight for this challenge (April 4, 2022) = 199.2 (Don't recommend this "sick" method to lose)

    So..... here goes nothing.....

    4/1 - didn't weigh, slept most of the day
    4/2 - didn't weigh, slept most of the day, but did walk the dog twice (had to, my daughter wasn't home .... it wasn't pretty)
    4/3 - didn't weigh - haven't tracked - everything (including work) starts again tomorrow.
    4/4 - ⚖️ 199.2 - back to work. Oh Yay. 🚶‍♀️ Decided to drive so knew I wasn't going to get my exercise in today. Wrong. Pulled out of my parking lot this morning, thought, "Wow, my truck is running kind of rough today." No sooner were the words formed in my head than... BAM! Check engine light came on. I was headed to the gas station. Finished that, drove home, grabbed my stuff and waved sadly at my bus as I was walking out of the gate. Sat at the stop for another half hour then, when I finally got downtown, hoofed it a little faster than my lungs were happy with to get to work on time. That meant walking back to the bus stop after work, then I walked the dog last night.
    4/5 - ⚖️ 201.2 (+2.0) - see what happens when you eat three "real" meals. Sigh. Truck is going to cost about $600 to fix. Better than I expected, more than I wanted. Anybody know anybody that removes curses? I'd like to talk to that person. :)
    4/6 - ⚖️ 200.8 (-0.4) - 🚶‍♀️ - called the shop and asked them to check the truck's ac, if they would. Said if they check it, they service it and that's going to cost me an additional $200. Le sigh. It's a black truck. This is Arizona. I haven't run the ac much yet this year, but I have run it and it doesn't blow as cool as it used to. I refuse to drive here without the ac, so I'm sucking it up and they're servicing the ac. BAH!
    4/7 - ⚖️ 200.8 (-0.0) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/8 - ⚖️ 200.8 (-0.0) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/9 - ⚖️ 201.2 (+0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/10 - ⚖️ 202.0 (+0.8) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/11 - ⚖️ 202.4 (+0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/12 - ⚖️ 202.2 (-0.2) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/13 - ⚖️ 201.0 (-1.2) - 🚶‍♀️- I've been absent, but I've been keeping track. The "save draft" feature saves me too. :)
    4/14 - ⚖️ 200.0 (-1.0) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/15 - First night of Passover! - ⚖️ 201.0 (+1.0) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/16 - ⚖️ 202.4 (+1.4) - 🚶‍♀️ - This is burgers and pizza the past couple of nights. And, looking for houses is not fun... Well, it is... but it's kind of depressing. I need to win the lottery. Just saying.
    4/17 - Happy Easter! 🐰 - ⚖️ 202.8 (+0.4) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/18 - ⚖️ 203.2 (+0.8) - 🚶‍♀️ - actually drank more water than soda today. Not much more, but some... unfortunately, the soda was "fully leaded"
    4/19 - ⚖️ 204.2 (+1.0) - 🚶‍♀️ - no surprises here....
    4/20 - ⚖️ 203.4 (-0.8) - 🚶‍♀️
    4/21 - ⚖️ 200.6 (-2.8) - 🚶‍♀️ - I don't believe this number
    4/22 - ⚖️ 202.4 (+1.8) - 🚶‍♀️ - I believe this number more than yesterday's
    4/23 - Birthday celebration for my girls 🍕
    4/24 -
    4/25 -
    4/26 -
    4/27 - my girls' birthday -32 yo (I'm not old enough to be this old)
    4/28 -
    4/29 - another birthday celebration :)
    4/30 -

    💐April Challenge💐

    My name is Mary. I participated in the monthly challenges last fall. Back home and would like to start again. A couple reasons why I like this challenge and group is because of self awareness and accountability. I find support in the groups updates and feedbacks. I do hope I able to join this group again.

    Heaviest weight: 204 lbs (I was probably heavier but did not have the courage to step on the scale.)
    Current weight: 180 lbs

    April weight lost so far: ⬆️ +6 lbs

    Daily Goals:
    🌷start my day with meditation 🧘‍♀️
    🌷start my morning 🌄 with water🚰 and stepping on the treadmill
    🌷reduce my carbs and replace with proteins
    🌷end my day practicing gratitude🌠
    Weight loss goal 5lbs 🖐

    April 1: 180 lbs
    April 6: 180 lbs
    Wednesday is my usual weigh in time. I have been mindful of my calories but exercising could be better. I ended up binge watching Ozark so my evening gratitude was lacking also. Will work on the exercising and Ozark is done.

    April 13: 182 lbs ⬇️⬇️ Well not back to my original weight but I will take it. It helps to have yardwork to add in for extra activity. Keep my nose to the grindstone. The month is halfway over.

    April 20: 183 lbs ⬇️⬇️
    April 21: 184 lbs⬆️
    April 22: 186 lbs ⬆️⬆️ salty food choices the day before

    I am ready for an awesome April!

    Heaviest weight: 234
    January 1st: 213.2
    April 1st: 208.1
    Current weight: 210.4

    April weight lost so far: up 2.3 pounds
    Weight lost this year: down 2.8 pounds 🥰

    Daily Goals:

    🌱Start my day with a 10 minute dog walk or 10 minute dance workout
    🌱Plan meals and log in advance
    🌱Log honestly and consistently
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌱Get 30 minutes of exercise or close my Apple Watch activity ring each day
    🌱Drink and log more water

    April 1: 208.1–Happy April Fools Day! I’m so excited my son is coming home to celebrate his 21st birthday! I’m making a taco bar with all the fixings including lots of veggies! 🍰 🌮
    Now it’s time for my outdoor adventure with Roxie! 🐕

    April 2: 209.2–Had a fun birthday party! Crazy to think my oldest is now 21. Wow does time fly!

    April 3: 210.4– the birthday treats are now over, so it’s back on track today. Back to basics, weighing food and pre logging.off to get my dance walk in this morning! We’ve got this! Happy Sunday!

    April 4: 209.1 Back on track! Feeling fabulous! The key to my success is my 10 minute morning exercise. 💃🏻 Happy Monday!

    April 5: 208.2 🐣 Back in the good groove! Trying out the “FlyLadyPlus” cleaning mobile app and pairing it with MFP. So far after a week I feel a little less overwhelmed with keeping up the house. The secret for most things in life is “progress not perfection” and short bursts of activity. It’s working! No… I’m not a paid spokesperson just a working mom trying to keep it together. 😆 Have a terrific Tuesday! Off to dance like no one is watching! 😂

    April 6: 207.4 Feeling off today. Gonna take it easy… it’s supposed to rain most of the day, so I won’t feel like I’m wasting a day off not being out in the yard. It’s the perfect day for catching up on laundry. Enjoy your Wednesday. ❤️

    April 7: 208.1 Feeling better today. 🙂. I’ll try to get in a Roxie walk in between rain clouds. ☔️ Happy Thursday! We took a nice long walk today, so Roxie will be sleeping most of the day. 🐾

    April 8: 207.4 Another rainy day, but the daffodils are popping up. ☔️🌼 It’s a good day to be at work… no guilt that I should be outside in the sunshine. Happy Friday!

    April 9: 207.5 Holding steady… feeling good. Happy Saturday! 🥰

    April 10: 208.1 was doing well until I ate 4 chocolate chip cookies before bed. I logged them disgustedly into my diary then decided to just move on. Can’t dwell on the past… only try to learn from it. Today is a new day and the sun is out!!☀️ Time to take Roxie for a walk. 🦮🌱

    April 11: 208.7…night snacking 😕Ah well, today is a new day. Just exercised so I’m starting off on the right foot. Happy Monday!

    April 12: 208.4… progress. 🥰

    April 13: 209.6… must… stop… stress… snacking. Hanging in there… by a thread

    April 14: 208.6 Happy Thursday! It’s a yard day today!!! 56 degrees and ☀️
