  • @jjjcat - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
  • @DebyS137 - love the costume change. You always seem so grounded and definitely brighten my morning.
  • Airport day. I had an early flight and like to fast until after I land and get to my destination. When the car dropped me off at the destination, there were only snacks and I was stranded until I was able to get some dinner. I should have just continued fasting because there was no protein and eating without protein just…
  • @whatmerunning - be well! I am not sure how long I’ve been here. Maybe 8 years. Initially I joined to start logging food. I only did that for a few months and then stopped. I came back in about 2018 or 2019. I had not known about the groups and stumbled upon the UAC post telling everyone to come on over, so I did. Then…
  • It has taken me some time to realize that my yo yo’ing was caused by restricting calories to 1200 or less, eliminating food groups, exercising without enough fuel, etc. I couldn’t do it for long (it was miserable) and after I lost my “number” I would start eating without restriction and gain it all back. It took me some…
  • Congratulations @bradkcrew - that is awesome! Happy Thanksgiving @jamcnewman and to all my neighbors to the north! Sunday, October 10 Tracking: Yes Calories: under Exercise: Yes, walk Pass days to date - 3
  • @biketheworld - another great thought provoking post. Thank you. I totally agree with this one - it just took me quite a few decades to start thinking this way and not be so hard on myself. It’s how I feel, not a number, that is important. Saturday, October 9 Tracking: Yes Calories: under but went out to dinner and overly…
  • I quite like these discussions and reading everyone’s thoughts. I’ve been incorporating a bit here and there. I weigh daily as a tool: - I can catch an upward trend sooner and figure out what I’m doing differently - I prefer to lose slowly to help with skin and resetting my metabolism. I prefer no more than 3-5 pounds a…
  • I think oftentimes there is an imperceptible line between making excuses/not taking responsibility and just having your butt kicked by life. But maybe that’s the point - just do what you can. Thursday, October 7 Tracking: Yes Calories: under Exercise: Yes, walk. I don’t feel like I’ve been kicked in the kidney anymore.…
  • Wednesday, October 6 Pass Day but feeling much better
  • Monday and Tuesday October 7 and 8 Pass days. I didn’t eat much so not much to track. I didn’t exercise. Instead I decided to pass a kidney stone. I do not recommend this to anyone. Pass days to date - 2
  • Sunday, October 3 Tracking: Yes Calories: under - right below maintenance. I think I’m where I want to be for a bit. I’m going to try to eat at maintenance every other day and below a few 100 the other days. I will see how this goes and adjust accordingly. Exercise: Yes, full body stretch warm up, cycle 60 min, cool down…

  • Congratulations to everyone in the Winner’s Circle and to all the champions! My goal for October is to make a daily meditation a habit.

  • Sunday, September 26 Tracking: Yes Calories: under - diabetes is a comorbidity of UC and my new meds can cause high glucose levels and really mess up insulin levels. I never had a problem with it until this weekend. So I’m off several meds and working to get my levels under control so my calories are low. I was told I have…
  • Saturday, September 25 Tracking: Yes Calories: under Exercise: No. infusion day. Laid low. Out of the winner’s circle but still going strong.
  • I am still learning on this journey. Last night proves that. I have to run to my infusion so will read all the posts later. Friday, September 24 Tracking: No Calories: No idea - we went to an outdoor dance with hors d’oeuvre - AND they had a pretzel station AND a candy station (I know I’m like 5 years old). Way too much…
  • @KCJen - I am going to chime in as well. I am 5’2” and closing in on 60 years old. My calories have been low this week due to a stomach thing but generally I eat anywhere from 1500-1900 calories a day. I eat lower carb, moderate protein and the rest fats and I do IF with an 8 hour window - but what works for me may not…
