    I would love to join this group. Can someone direct me to how to do that ? If there is a format to follow etc. TIA

    Welcome!
    No, no format :)
    Just whatever suits you!

    Some post goals in the morning and update at night, some post goals once a day and update the next day when they post their goals.
    Some post hourly to keep on track.

    I used to post goals. I don't anymore because right now I'm not using MFP consistently, but when I am doing it I bor ally just post my achievements for the day.

    So whatever works for you!
    And what threw me off when I first joined it that posts come through all sorts of random times in the day and it took me a good week to figure out it was the timezones 😂

    @Kykybinford - Welcome! I'm an avid user for several years now! It really helps me.

    The biggest thing I've learned over my life of compulsive eating is that I "just don't keep promises to myself". Sad to say, but true. But a public declaration (on this board) in the form of an hour commitment -- I keep! Go figure. I have some sort of rigorous honesty with that. It's also a way for me to "move on" and to leave digressions behind. So that's why you'll see me do JFT goals and then hour commitments throughout the day.

    Thanks to all of you for being here.

    Happy Mother's Day!

    13. Therapy thoughts: Reflecting on progress – "No snacks at school" definitely helps. Been lifting regularly, cardio in the AM. Making progress on staying in the room; Cora got curtains and a soft area rug. What do I do about the fact that nothing really seems fun? "Having fun" is something of a chore. I need to talk to my parents about end-of-life plans (particularly funeral arrangements) and I'm not sure how to go about it. I do somewhat trust that they are capable of deciding when they need assisted living but should probably offer help in finding out what sort of place would be best BEFORE it actually becomes necessary.

    14. Just for fun: Start sketching dragon on a pile of books, offering one to the armored knight, & banner that reads "Treasure should not be hoarded / It should be shared."

    WFTY: Priorities. Kind of scattered today, to be honest. We're getting VERY close to the end of the year and it feels like I'm being pulled in every direction at once!
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence. 2022 WFTY: Focus.

    Just in case you need a laugh and are under the impression that I have my life together…

    So we have this cute puppy and because of cute puppy we have a baby gate on the stairs. I needed to do laundry so I went upstairs. While I was upstairs cute puppy pee’d at the bottom of the stairs (she dislikes it when we go upstairs). I come downstairs with a full hamper of laundry and see a puddle. Because I am so graceful, I tried to set the basket to the right of the puddle while stepping over the gate. Outcome? Down in the basement arose such a clatter… I fell down the stairs, landed just to the left of the puddle, hit my head on the wall and dropped the hamper into the pee puddle splashing pee on everything including me.

    Yes, I’m okay. Sore cause old people are like that, but nothing major.

    Today is the day I take the cute puppy to my daughter. I'll miss the little dragon, but she has a more important job to do. She will be my daughter's "why" for a while. We all need something to care for and to love. Unfortunately, Sierra struggles to love herself so she needs an external reason to get up and engage with the world. My husband prays over the dog every night hoping that she will be the perfect best friend.

    JFT Monday
    - Sleep in :smiley:
    - Puppy to get final shots :smiley:
    - Pack puppy's stuff :smiley:
    - Work
    - Leave work early
    - Drive to Cambridge to meet daughter. Hopefully, spend a little time there before heading home.
    - Maybe meet a friend for drinks after the drop off as he lives in Cambridge.
    - Bed by 10:30

    - Bed by 10:30 :(

    Yesterday was a good day. Got to see my girl and I made plans for V's 18th birthday. It is a short notice party/sleepover at the house Thursday after their Senior Spot Day. The kids should have a really great day, I just need to clean up downstairs now that the pup is gone so they have a place to sleep. Looks like 10 kids are coming. I ordered Chipotle catering for 15 and a Great American Cookie Cake. Other than that I'll grab a veggie tray and cut up some fruit and buy some drinks. Should be pretty easy. Oh, gotta get stuff for s'mores in case they decide to have a fire.

    Today is just work and cleaning, unless I go for a hike with friends. Not sure if they hike in the rain, but they tend to be pretty hard core so I wouldn't doubt it.

    JFT Tuesday
    - Work by 8:00 :(
    - Work stuff :smiley:
    - Make Graduation announcements
    - Reserve shelter for grad party.
    - Hike
    - Clean
    - No alcohol
    - Shower
