  • I've been doing 16:8 for a couple of months. Eating what I want during the 8 hour period, and losing approx 1/2 pound a week. It's simple. I've also done the calorie counting method, years ago, and got the same results, 1/2 pound loss per week. It was nice to be able to have a late snack, and breakfast. So for me, both…

  • For the last six weeks, I've stopped eating at 7pm. I used to snack right up to bedtime, loved to lay in bed, watch movies and eat. Then the next day eat, and snack all day. So stopping at 7pm has cut out a lot of calories for me without having to think about it. I make exceptions for nights out etc. But so far, this is…
  • The BP of 140/80, at one point in time isn't threatening. It takes multiple readings to establish hypertension. However, if your BP hangs out in that range, it is a red flag. I saw my doctor last week and was stressed. I work in hospice, and it's been crazy. I was so overworked, and taking calls from nurses up until the…

  • Enjoying the posts, great topic. Whenever I track, I lose weight, and every time I stop I gain. I get sick of tracking, and just want to eat, so I'll let it go, but I have a weight limit that I never let myself pass, so as soon as I get there, it's back to tracking. This has gone on for years, and I stay within a 15 pond…

  • I dropped out of UAC last week, but I'm looking forward to restarting October. I fell and fractured my foot, and with work stress, family stress and all, just don't have it in me to track, exercise and log. But UAC has helped me so much. I'm going to take a break, and get right back in. I wish everyone the best!
  • @jamcnewman I'm so happy for you. Singing in the choir just sounds like heaven. Yes x 3. NSV is not drinking alcohol for last month's challenge, and so far again this month.
  • @Mrs_Hoffer Thanks for the list! I was starting to flag a little and it really helped to see everyone in there together :) Yes x 3, short hike with dog for exercise on lunch break

  • @jamcnewman OMG! What a cute pup. That's a big baby. @bradcrew congrats on flying past that 50 lbs! Very inspiring. Yes x 3, running, deadlifts and balancing The hardest part for me is logging. I just hate it and resist it. It's boring, but I think the real reason is that I want to cheat and eat more :D . Logging keeps me…
  • @readyornot1234 I love your post, especially about managing reactions at the extreme ends of life. For me, I'm working on controlling my reactions over the petty things in life. I realize I've become much more sensitive, reactive over the last year. I think it's the loss of a lot of social support during COVID. When…
  • Thank you @jamcnewman <3
  • Planned pass day 1. Exercised, logged, but had planned pizza for dinner, 200 calories over. What works for me is setting a time in the future to clean up my diet, quit drinking, and lose weight. I had a death in the family this year, and I knew, I can't diet now. I let myself comfort eat, and I drank wine. And of course…
  • Yes x 3, I was a slacker on exercise and did the minimum 20 minute dog walk. I was in a 5 hour meeting, and even though I was just sitting there, it sucked the life out of me. I weigh every morning, and log it in to the Weightgrapher.com site. It draws the trend for up to a year. Whenever I stop tracking and weighing, my…
  • Yes x 3 Running and rows on my lunch break. Baked potato stuffed with roasted broccoli, chili butter, parmesan, and prosciutto on top. But what I really want is @WhatMeRunning's steak with blue cheese butter.
  • Yes x 3 I schedule 3 snacks, because I can't make it through to a meal. It's pretty much that same. Baguette and butter, before lunch, dates before dinner, and yogurt and honey before bed. I switched out the dates for chocolate covered raisins this week. BIG MISTAKE. I can stop at 1-2 dates, but I lose it with the raisins,…
  • yes x 3t Learning to run on treadmill, after being a trail runner for the last year. It's strange, but not half bad.
  • yes x 3
  • Yes x 3 I have a hard time tracking. There are so many different ingredients in recipes, that it's a pain in the neck trying to figure out which % of ingredient is in each serving, and putting each ingredient in the tracker. However, it really works. When I don't track, I eat bigger servings, use more fats, eat more snacks…
  • Yes x 3 I love that we acknowledge the champions. Congratulations everyone! Friday was the end of a hard work week. I wanted to celebrate by having a pint and pizza. But if I go down that road, who knows when I'll make it back. So, I chatted on the phone with friends, make healthy food, made my UAC goals, and went to bed.…
