    Anyone with plans for Memorial Day?

    Laying low and quiet - currently waiting for my husband's stent procedure to get started- if there's pain after or they couldn't do it through his throat-it will be scheduled for tomorrow as an ultrasound-and he would have to stay the night - hoping for a smooth path
    It's supposed to get warmer 85 on Sunday then 88 Monday-going to plant my veggies for my garden, get some walking in and enjoy the sunshine in SE Wisconsin

    @ac204 - Great job managing your calories through all those celebrations earlier in May. I’m glad to hear positive news when we haven’t heard from someone in awhile. It’s nice that you were enjoying time with friends and family, not avoiding us 😉.
    @PatriceFitnessPal -thanks for the support and definitely not avoiding you all! I'm so glad I have you, @jessicakrall8 and the rest of the team here! Even when I'm silent, I know you're all here and that is helping keep me on track :smiley: The end of the school year is always so busy, plus, my son is in his school's play, The Sound of Music. We have had such late nights trying to keep up with everything but tonight is opening night and just 3 weeks until his summer break! :smiley:

    @jessicakrall8, I didn't get a chance to post last week's weigh in but I did weigh-in and steps are getting better. Stats for weigh-ins and steps are below.

    Back from the beach and lots of eating. We ate out twice yesterday, otherwise I think I would have had a loss. Gotta get back into the groove!

    Anyone with plans for Memorial Day?

    On Sunday, we have our annual Kickball Tournament with all our friends and their kids. We each bring a dish to pass and they play rain or shine. I chase my toddler around the whole time but I do not partake in kickball lol

    Memorial day is my "mother in laws" birthday and she wants to go swimming so she got a hotel room for the night and invited us to come swim with her.

    I didn't sleep well this week as I'm in an hour early for training and did a bit of depression eating yesterday (because we found out our rent is going up over $200 :cry: ) so I was happily surprised there was still a loss!

    @Afura So sorry about the uptick in rent...I know a lot who are having to face that lately...it not easy, especially when wages don't increase as fast as prices! Hope you can find a way to balance out. I know a lot of people getting creative with Etsy, eBay, etc...some days I'll admit, when trying to balance out the bills, I DO miss my piano lesson income.

    Congrats on your loss this week! Hang in there!

    @PatriceFitnessPal I KNEW something was wrong because it's not like you to be so quiet, but I assumed you were out of town or spending time with family. I am SO VERY SORRY for the loss of your son's friend! How is he handling it? I agree with you, all of this trauma and grief is overwhelming some days. I tend to cry, pray and walk just to clear my head. It seems every day is a new reason for sadness. I hope you know you can reach out to us anytime, but that doesn't give you the hug you probably really need, or a friend to just listen to you express yourself. I will email you my phone number and know that I'm only a call away especially when you just need to vent.

    I too dream of a day when we stop hurting ourselves and others. We have to find a way to respect each other, live peacefully and stop the violence...especially when it's pointed to the weakest...children, senior citizens, the handicapped...just breaks my heart.

    **BIG HUGS** my friend...Find a quiet corner, just breathe...drink your favorite relaxing beverage, listen to some jazz (or whatever music speaks to your soul) and know that we're here thinking of you. Please hug your son from a stranger he doesn't know, but who cares for his Mom.

    I was rage/emotional eating this week, so I am surprised the scale went down. My whole family (3-year-old, 5-year-old, husband, and me) all woke up with fevers today.
