    Good evening all. Ready for a very hot weekend?
    Check in:
    Steps - 7791. Not a lot this week.
    Calories 2490. Ugh.
    Exercise - pickleball in morning. 20 minutes. Cut it short due to thumb pain.
    Walk in evening. Short one just to stretch my legs. Waited for maintenance all day. Supposed to come 8am, got here at 5pm.

    Friday Weigh In

    PW 225.3
    CW 222.6

    SW 242.2
    Total Loss 19.6

    Getting out of the funk I was in last week. Spoke to my doctor and she made me feel better because she is so understanding. She upped my Effexor temporarily and that has helped as well.
    I finally got an appointment with a therapist to help me deal with all my mental baggage. My weight is really the thing that drove me to seek therapy again. I have to stop using food as a tool to relieve anxiety & depression. I don't want to be like my parents, diabetes, heart disease, cirrhosis from a fatty liver, and depressed. :'(

    Very nice loss! Two of the things that helped me lose weight is therapy and fear for my health. While the therapy was hard it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Do I still want to binge when I am stressed, absolutely. But now I have tools to help me. I wish you the best of luck with therapy.

    A small loss, but going in the right direction so im happy. Ive been good with diet this week but haven't done any exercise aside from walking, need to sort that for the coming week.

    Awesome loss! Whatever you did, it’s working. Walking is great exercise. Before I had to stop, walking was my only form of exercise. What else are you thinking of adding?

    We are under a heat warning all weekend. My air conditioning has been on constantly since we got back. I am dreading my hydro bill this month. I hate that when people do that. If they give you a time be there.

    Steps: 11,596
    Exercise: 5/5

    Early grocery shopping for us today. I am going afterwards with my friend to drop her grandkids off and then we are taking the scenic route to Niagara Falls. We will walk to the falls, of course go to the casino 😉 and have something to eat. We are driving back today. My step count will probably be low as I will be either in the car or using my walker most of the day. No exercise today besides walking. It’s still steps but my watch doesn’t pick them up.

    NSV: I lost my keys yesterday. House, key fob for entry to the building, car, daughters house and safety deposit box. I couldn’t get in contact with any of the places I had been. I was stressed and wanted to eat everything in sight. But I didn’t. Anytime I avoid stress eating it’s a win for me.

    My scale was acting weird so I really doubt this number is correct.

    I knew last week's loss was too good to be true. I've been snacking too much at night.
