    My body is so efficient at keeping me safe during a famine. About 1500 calories - 500 calories of walking (12000 steps) and i gain half a pound. Normally id give up by now from frustration but im gonna continue believing in the process. Ugh. Anytime i get to 239 lbs, my body starts resisting the weight loss. Im dont need extra weight in case of a famine, i promise u body! Ugh

    That much walking probably put a reasonable amount of strain on your body! Your gain is likely water to help your muscles recover from the movement. Just stick with it, I promise consistency is the way to go!

    steps

    Sunday: 8334
    Monday: 7260
    Tuesday: 9367
    Wednesday: 10809
    Thursday: 9882
    Friday: 18415 ( <3 hike day!)
    Saturday: 12637
    TOTAL: 76,704

    We were away for a swim meet last weekend but Friday we were just driving there. Once the tent was set up, we drove some more to see two beautiful waterfalls. The hike was not too long but added some steps. We camped next to the pool, which is next to the beautiful park with a pond - I went around that pond in the evening = more steps.
    Eating was totally out of my normal and I came back so bloated I almost got a heart attack when I saw the number Monday morning. Then I miraculously lost 3 pounds overnight. ;) Oh, how I wish I could keep that pace! :D

    Just a quick check in from me, I haven't done so well the last few days. Having some stress and tension that's giving me a headache, and overeating (I am a stress eater for sure). Steps have been low. Sleep has been interrupted. I need to get back on track!

    Going out of town for the weekend Friday through Sunday night, planning on pretending I’m thin for meals and just picking at my going out meals instead of eating most of it. Walking shouldn’t be a problem. I finally broke my barrier weight and I’m not about to give that up

    Going out of town for the weekend Friday through Sunday night, planning on pretending I’m thin for meals and just picking at my going out meals instead of eating most of it. Walking shouldn’t be a problem. I finally broke my barrier weight and I’m not about to give that up

    Some tips that helped me early on in my journey:
    • Wait until everyone else starts eating before you do (having "proper" table manners helped me a lot with this one)
    • Drink plenty of water before a meal. We often mistake thirst as hunger.
    • Split your plate into two sections: one you plan to eat now, and one you can pick at after you finish the first half but don't plan to eat all of (taking a break after the first section also helps your brain recognize how full your stomach may be)
    • Put your napkin or another piece of trash on your plate after you believe you are "done"
    • Enjoy yourself! One meal will not set back all of the progress you've made and there's no reason to be hard on yourself just for enjoying food

    Oh good gravy thank you, I’m very planning oriented and that helps a lot. I so don’t want to ruin my progress. I’m taking diabetes meds and should be taking statins but I’m terrified of statins and trying to be healthy weight instead. Thank you!😊🌻

    @SarahJoyManea - great job on your steps. What do you do to get so many? curious if it's your type of work ect.

    @TwistedSassette - we are here for you. getting into a funk is never fun and at times hard to get out of

    @9Harvey - nice loss with being away. I always love sleeping in my own bed

    Not sure I did an intro this month. I am 69 years old and retired. I was always skinny until close to 40. I was working in an office and eating mixed nuts by the cup ful every day and drinking Coke all day. Got up to 179 before I decided something had to change. I switched to zero sugar Coke and lost 20 pounds in two years. My only steady exercise was walking with occasional "other" but no real plan.
    Then in 2020 I was diagnosed with a rare type of liver cancer. I have tried chemo, immunotherapy, radiation and more chemo. Today the doctor said she thinks this is not working and we need to decide new options. It is very frustrating to go for these treatments every two or three weeks wondering what my body is doing and waiting 3 months between scans to find out. I thought last week's scan had good results, no metastasis and tumor looks better but the doctor was not so positive I think because the lymph nodes have not decreased to normal.
    So during this "journey" I have slowly lost about 10 pounds and feel very good most of the time. I eat what I want, just less and do what I want, just get tired more easily. Everyone tells me I look great.
    But I plan to beat this somehow and I am just stubborn enough to do it.
    Keep up the good work and we will all reach our goals.
