YAY! Great news. Turned it around from your reported "terrible" to good - that's wonderful to hear3

@PlaneMonkey I have an android and had the same issue, also solved by reinstalling - but then I had it happen again this morning, so I reinstalled again! It seems okay now but I am giving the app shifty eyes.
I'm getting a little worried about my appetite now. The stress of the interview is past (I think they went well! Won't know til I hear from HR), but last night I ended up being out late around dinner time and getting home at 9:30 (which was not the plan) and still wasn't very hungry. I did have some cheese and berries before bed because going to sleep on a very empty stomach seemed like a poor idea. as it turns out, I think I had a dream about a cupcake??
but now it's just about 1pm, I had my regular breakfast (bowl of cheerios) around 9 and I am not like. anxious for lunch? I have been having a busy day already of walking, yoga, grocery shopping for the weekend, and baking a berry buckle that just came out of the oven (smells awesome in here). But I SHOULD be hungry by now. Just very odd but I don't want to make myself eat if I am truly not hungry. Heat could also be playing a factor, as it has been reaching 80F+ by 10am most days this week.
However, I am guessing once cocktails and snacks come out at the beach house this weekend, I will be miraculously cured! I know I've continued to lose this week (took a peek at the scale today) so that will help build in a buffer like Courtney said. And I will stick to the plan for movement while I'm away!
@DD265 that's the other side of our corner store runs - your wallet will also thank you for stopping!! I think it's been just over a week since I had a trip myself, which feels like a small triumph.
Happy Friday / Canada Day!
It is becoming a rather hot day here - I'm trying to stop procrastinating and get my exercise done before it gets seriously hot.
Guess I had better hop to it, eh? Have a good one!3
Finally done (except for dog walk) early tonight. Almost done with week 1. So far, I am feeling pretty good about the start. Only one "bad" day on Tuesday when I went to dinner with friends. Restaurant did not have the best choices available, but I at least ate responsibly. I am pleased that I have managed to hit water and sleep goals so far. Biggest disappointment is continued problem with my hip/back/butt issues that is keeping me from riding (my number one emotion and stress manager). Hopefully I will get some answers next week. All said, though, I am pretty happy that this has not totally derailed me. My typical response would be to say chuck it all and then self-soothe with really bad food choices! Just so frustrating to have a new horse and not be able to ride. Picture is of my last ride on her a week or so ago. Prior, I was only getting a ride or two in before having it get too painful to continue.
Just visited the "Habit Tracker". What a really nice tool it is. Am making a note to start using that next month. I think it is a great way of setting goals and following up.
@jan110144 What a beautiful horse. It's so hard to be kept from doing the things we love because our bodies aren't cooperating. Hope you get some answers soon.2
@jan110144 I second the praise of your lovely horse! And you look great on her. I know how hard it is to have some dreaded butt/hip/whatever problem that makes riding impossible, and I hope your return to riding is quicker than mine was last year!
As to the habit tracker, please go ahead and use it right away! There is no need to have started last week - I blew off a week myself, so just go to our team tab at the bottom, add your own name, your list of things to track, and you're golden.4
It looks like there might be some people who could not get through the app problems today to post a weigh-in - or maybe they just need to catch up tomorrow. Here are all the people due through Saturday - week 1 will be a wrap when we have all these numbers, so don't dawdle!
Wohoo! I didn't let my one off week last week mess me up for too long! I tracked every day and mostly stayed within my calorie range.6
I am really happy with this. It doesn't look like much but my body scan yesterday was great! I was having an issue with loosing a bit of muscle each time I had my inbody scan at the health coaches office. This time it finally came back up. I lost more body fat and gained 1.5 lbs of muscle.
I'm behind on posts and everyone has been posting lots of good stuff! I read in chunks but always get interrupted. @Kali225 I too am not really hungry. I am having a hard time fitting in all of my calories. Really making a point to eat breakfast to get the calories in. Don't want to lose my muscle I just got back! Workouts are going well and I love my new workout room. Makes the entire process easier than constantly setting up and taking down daily. Ballet Beautiful had a special this month so I signed up. Haven't had a subscription for quite a while so excited about that!6
Great weigh-ins this week @lauren_989 @conleywoods
Helping to finish our week 1 strong!
About 6000 of those steps was from our one long walk (60 mins) which means for the rest of the day I took under 1000 steps! Oops
When we are at the trailer the space is so small that a walk to the fridge, washroom, etc. is like 2 steps. So, when we are here, we have to be intentional about exercise. The day started great with the one hour walk - the sun was shining. We then had a couple drinks and played some cards and then a short nap (really got some good R&R on Canada Day for sure!) and then we woke up to a crazy storm. The lightning just kept coming... it was pouring, mini hail at one point.. we actually just ended up going to bed early and I got 9 hours of sleep.
Today will be similarly difficult as the rain is supposed to continue, so we'll see. I do have light weights here so I'll try to do some strength.
Enjoy the day!4
Hi! I'm Kristi and I live in Washington state. I'm married and we will celebrate our 15th anniversary in less than 2 weeks. We have 3 kids age 13, 11 and 7. We live on 100 acres in the forest with lots of hiking out the back-door. We have 2 dogs and 2 guinea pigs. The whole family is on summer break until September. We are spending lots of time outdoors especially at a family members lake cabin.
I have been on.my weight loss journey since February 2019. I make slow progress and had a big setback last year dealing with major work stress. I hired a wellness coach this past April and finally got back on track. I have learned a lot from her and have made some major changes to my diet and exercise. I am counting macros and doing mostly HIIT workouts and seeing pretty steady results. It's slow going but it's going.
My July goals
➡️ Hit my macros 6 days a week
➡️ Move internationally most days a week
➡️ 3 HIIT workouts a week
➡️ Pick a health related book and start reading5
Hello. I am alive. It's been so many months, I know. Some members probably dont even know me. Things have been difficult and I basically haven't been able to face anything. No coping skills.
It really hurt to weigh myself this morning, because I've gained so much back. But there's reality. I'm at 187 pounds and I need to start again from there. I went to the gym yesterday for the first time in a year.
@jugar I'd like to come back please, if I can.9
@AshenMoon CONGRATULATIONS!!! Wishing you all the best in your marriage. 🎉1
Welcome back @Terytha! Glad to have you back. Time to just look forward. Can’t change what has already happened. Don’t feel bad. I have been here, sort of, and STILL have had a setback. I also need to reset and so far it’s not going well for me.
So I’ve caught up with posts. Glad @Gidgitgoescrazy has had good days. Still trying to get there.
Logging my food every day did not happen. Just Try July now needs to be Just Try Harder July. My challenges remain life in a house full of snacks/snackers, having my life out of sync living with my daughter and family, not knowing where all my stuff is, not feeling I have time to do me. But I really think having my new doctor double my blood pressure medicine is wreaking havoc on my body. My feet are definitely retaining fluids. I hate it. If I could lose the weight maybe my bp would go back down. But this week, with no extraordinary events/eating, I gained the most weight in a week since joining. I hesitate to record it because everyone is doing so well. I don’t want to mess up the stats.
That said, @jugar you can decide. I will give you my weight but if you want to give me an excused to retain our losses, I have no problem with that.
CW 209.7 😔
I know I have not been perfect, but I didn’t do that with food.
Logging every day may be too big a step for me. So I am going to try committing to checking in HERE every day and hopefully logging will naturally follow.10
