    Sorry- I got off on a tangent and forgot to comment- love Mama Mia ! Cheesy and wonderful in the best way possible! Our local high school did a production a few years back and I so enjoyed it! Isn't it nice to be able to get back to these kind of things? I think that was the worst part of Covid for me- missing out on the arts.

    well, a bit of scale movement today. my weight changes every day by a couple of pounds, but this week compared to previous weeks, this is the highest weight this week and I am very happy about it.

    @SavageMrsMoose I agree with you about missing out on live performances, I enjoyed from rock concerts to opera at the Kennedy center or musicals like Home Away, and believe it or not The Lion King was amazing, even though I can hear my kids reciting the whole movie in my head. and I agree, Mama Mia makes your heart smile with the music.
    Things are going back to normal and looking forward to find something to go see.

    Had a good week with lots of Jazzercise. Spent a good portion of the week going through my closets and donating clothes that are now too big on me —donated 7 bags of clothes!!
    Heading to Bloomington for a few days to hang with my daughter!

    Wow @nancyinmo bet that made you feel like a million bucks!! Congrats on the loss this week AND for the closet cleaning!! At one time, I struggled with that a lot...found it difficult to let go of them...not sure why as it really should be like you described...a point of great pride! Enjoy the time with your daughter. I used to work in Bloomington and used to live in Burnsville, Minnesnowta!

    Gosh, that sounds really hard. And no, I don't think you are worrying too much. Hoarding that bad is a serious health concern not to mention a fire hazard. It really is a mental health disorder and it is really hard for loved ones/outsiders to deal with. I think I would try to get them to talk to a health care provider who specialises in hoarding problems. Until they both realise that what they are doing is problematic, I doubt there is anything you can do to fix it. Anything related to cleaning or throwing stuff away is too traumatising to even consider for them. If things keep getting worse and worse and becomes a threat to their health, you may need to contact local authorities. I really hope it won't come to that though.

    @jessicakrall8
    Thank you for the chat as well! I had never done any video call before so I was very nervous, but I think it went fine. :smile:

    Same weight again this week. 3 weeks in a row. This seems to be a trend for me, nothing nothing then whoosh. So hopefully that’s what happening. It is frustrating though, I’ve been excellent with tracking my food and keeping my macros around where I want them. Oh well 🤷‍♀️

    @SavageMrsMoose I can feel your pain in your posting about your parents and how deeply troubled you are...I can only imagine how you feel. It's obvious you've tried everything you can. I agree with the comment made by pupowl in that you need to reach out to a professional who can deal with the trauma and mental anguish your parents feel due to their phobia of letting go. I hope you find someone who can offer you some practical suggestions of further help for them. It's so hard being a caregiver and although I didn't deal with a hoarding situation, just any changes for them is difficult to handle. My mother had dementia and I was her only caregiver for 16 years. Any small changes in routine or anything really, caused a lot of upset. I imagine it's about the same in this situation...they can't help how they feel about the changes...and more than likely, they don't understand how they feel about it either, they just know change hurts.

    We're here for you even if it's just to vent a little...at least that relieves a little of your stress. I AM glad that your parents have you...as some elderly have no one who cares.

    @CasandraW I saw your posting the beginning of February where you listed your steps for Jan 28th and 29th. Feb's stats began on Jan 29th, so I assumed you were signing up for the step challenge for Feb. I have searched but see no postings since then and I need your steps for Jan 30-Feb 10th to get you caught up. If I misunderstood your post for Jan 29th and it wasn't your intention to sign up for Feb's challenge, please let me know or send me your steps to catch up the chart. Thanks!

    Well, I didn’t see that coming. Looking back, there’s been a lot of stress eating this past week. Hoping things calm down in the coming week. It’s been three weeks since my cortisone shot in my knee and it appears it’s not going to improve any more. I was a facilitator at some training at my church today, and I could feel my knee getting swollen and stiff while standing. I’ve got three more weeks till my follow up appointment so I’m hoping to just limp along til then. I can’t do much to improve my mobility right now, but I can make better food choices.
