    I love Leslie Sansone walking dvd's ...I am sure you can find them on Youtube....

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 and @rainyrae You can absolutely find Leslie on Youtube - I use her a lot when the weather isn't cooperating. Link below. I also like the Get Fit with Rick walking videos (and he's good to look at - LOL)

    I love Get Fit with Rick! His Harry Styles walking video is fun.

    Maybe someday I’ll get back to a more settled regime and mindset and join again

    Sorry to see you go ... I hope life will get more better for you

    Good morning!

    User: rwillems
    Weigh In Day: Sunday
    PW: 276.4 lbs
    CW: 273.2 lbs (down 3.2 lbs)

    I am really pleased with my numbers this week, but I really think something odd happened last week. I was down all week then on Saturday and Sunday I was suddenly up 1.5 lbs! Monday of this week I was back down again and have been making small but steady progress all week. I am not complaining, just thought it strange. I know during the summer I was getting a lot of strange readings but that was because I had to use different scales, weigh in at different times, settings were different and, of course, food intake was much more difficult to monitor. Kind of shows that you can’t let yourself be defeated by a couple of bad scale readings. Progress is made slowly over time.

    Oh well, as I said, I am not complaining and the progress has been slow but steady in the right direction! Have a great week everyone.

    Rick


    Not late just got missed in the morning shuffle, I guess.. Here is the entry I made on Sunday morning.

    2/13 - 5,945 - Okay, this is frustrating. I thought I hit my goal before bed. If I had noticed the steps, I could have cranked out the 55 steps. I went to sleep pretty much immediately after doing yoga so I didn't even look...ugh!

    Motto: 🏋🏾‍♀️ Don't think, just do it!!

    Recap: Well, still not back on track and a bit frustrated. It's all me though...guilty!! In the last 7 days, I've had an Anniversary with two dinners out, Superbowl with snacks and alcohol (not nearly what I would normally do) and now Valentine's day (which shouldn't translate into much change). But there were too many temptations during this week and i barely said no. It was fun and enjoyable but now the tale is told on the scale! Up 2 from last week and a total of almost 4 from the week before!! It's amazing (also known as appalling) how easy it is for old habits to come back. In addition to a couple of dinners out, I reintroduced alcohol and chips... I make it through the day ok but the evening desires to have a glass or two of wine and a bowl of chips is NOT good. I did really well getting my water up to 80 ounces...only to be struggling once again to hit 32~ At least I've remained constant with exercise and even threw in some new core moves!

    Work has gotten busy in the past two weeks (especially the last one) and I haven't had as much time to visit the boards, comment, get inspiration, reinforcements etc. I think it really makes a difference. I feel like if I had been participating more in my groups, I might have had a bit more resolve. Who knows. Well, I hope things slow down and I can get back on here and get my head straight.

    - THOUGHTS: Food, like your money, should be working for you🙂

    Sorry about that. I did the reminders in a hurry as I was going away. I did have your weight recorded.

    Just got home. I will post my steps tomorrow. Just a general comment today. Congratulations to those who lost weight this week so far. The weigh ins so far have been great. If you did have a gain or stayed the same, keep up working on your plan. As long as we get up and try, we are winners in my book.
