I'm still waiting for an answer on the new job, stress eating almost out of control but with lots of fresh fruit and veggies available carbs/sugar are taking the hit. Florence shut down the HR division...delays delays Argh. I had…
  • Wednesday check-in... Still waiting for an answer on the new job, stress eating almost out of control but with fresh fruit and veggies carbs/sugar are taking the hit. Florence shut down the HR division...delays delays Argh. I had hoped to be training by now. We have had sunny skies again for a few days - sitting in the…
  • Hmmm - ESFJ-A Consul... Very interesting. From thinking to feeling, I'd say age and experience played into that shift... :)
  • Impromptu run to South Beach (Oregon- not Miami) last night to pick up a trailer. Awoke in a cloud of coastal fog that quickly cleared. We left Ptown about 10pm, nice stop over at the Casino for a few hours and pulled in at the beach about 3am. Up at 8a, home now and bushed. Good trip though. I've always tested out as an…
  • Whew...finished catching up reading. Fab photos! Great tips! Wonderful news! Hugs for everyone struggling. Prayers for the East coasters and anyone in the path of the Pacific storms. Be safe! So much other good stuff in the thread. Newbies welcome - clean out your cupboards and watch your carts as you shop, log your food…
  • Great work everyone, always inspiring to read through the posts, thanks to those that offer encouragement, share tips and big hugs to everyone - welcome newbies! I'm finally getting back on a downward weight track. Relieved that I'm fitting into jeans and tops that weren't fitting in May and June. Much happier switching…
  • Great work everyone - welcome newbies! Congrats on finishing the dissertation. Nice drops Tia & Nat. I'm finally getting back on a downward weight track. Relieved that I'm fitting into jeans and tops that weren't fitting in May and June. Much happier switching over to Fall clothes. Doing well with decluttering, took 3 more…
  • Hi everyone, Happy September! Thank you for your inspiration and insights shared throughout the month. August was a bit challenging but filled with fun. Did okay on my goals - sleep averaged 4h 20min, water 72oz, steps 7600, declutter 3 drop offs but not going to paint...maybe in Nov. Taking on a job change, stressed out,…
  • Weekly check-in Stressed and stalled... Busy holiday weekend, eating too much, drinking too much, worrying too much. Gotta pull my head out, get back to the nightly walks and find some balance again. 5k coming up Sunday 9/9 for Alzheimer's. Just doing the best I can, knowing I can do better. Start 7/1 @ 187 7/18 184.5…
  • Wednesday check in - I'm a night owl so 145am PST actually. Stressful week, busy, exams and assessment test Friday for a new job. Did well enough to get an interview. Fun fundraiser Car Wash with friends Sunday - brownies, cookies, chips and dips, plus sugary adult beverages to keep the crew happy. Fun but way over ate. I…
  • I am very disappointed in MisFit and MFP sync problems. I had a Fitbit since 2016 but it died in March. I bought the Misfit Ray in July and started using it July 15th. It is so random, works/syncfir a few days, then disconnects. Reinstalls never last, some days it only partially Syncs through mid-day, dumps on me and I…
  • I have a MisFit Ray - just bought in in July to replace my Fitbit that died in March. I loved Fitbit, never had any issues with MFP and fitbit since I bought it 2016. Just started using the Ray July 15 and it has been nothing but trouble and frustration. Syncs with MFP for a few days, then nothing, then back to syncing or…

  • Argh just dumped a post - hate that it dumps when your phone turns sideways. Have a good day ~ jazzypdx
  • Daily fluctuations in general are quite frustrating but that is just part of the incredible machine known as the human body. Generally a swing of appox 2 lbs in a 24 hour period is normal (+water, beverages, food consumed - urine and bm expelled) especially if your system is not "regular". Last week after a really hot day…
  • Hi everyone! What I find in your stories and posts are hope, warmth, kindness and truth, the sharing of joys and sorrows is grounding and inspiring to me. Choice by choice we move forward towards our goals, good days and bad days but forward we go. It has been a bit of a crazy week for me. Concert Thursday (Hall & Oats +…
  • Good work everyone! Choice by choice we move forward towards our goals, good days and bad days but forward we go. It has been a bit of a crazy week for me. Concert Thursday (Hall & Oats + Train) was great, finished the night at a local jam and got some dancing in. Friday unexpected visitor from out of town - my niece and…
  • Wednesday /week 4 check-in. A bit of over indulging but a fun busy weekend. The weather here in Portland is unusually summer like and hot which isn't helping me get out on my evening walks. Midnight walk Monday and it was still 78 out. Just got to motivate myself to move it, hot or not. Doing well with calories overall but…
  • August check in - Hello everyone , keep up the good work, one day and one choice at a time, keep doing the best you can and allow yourself to enjoy each day without regret. July was a challenging month for me but memories were made, and some days & evenings were filled with laughter, others with tears. Good time seeing…
  • Week 3 check in - Hello everyone , keep up the good work, one day and one choice at a time, keep doing the best you can and allow yourself to enjoy each day without regret. It was a challenging week for me, not much movement on the scale, but memories were made, and some evenings were filled with laughter. Sad to reconnect…
  • Oops forgot to check-in weight 7/25 183.5
  • Hi everyone - Great progress peeps! Whatever you do stay in the moment and enjoy your time with friends & family. Don't over think and just make the best choices you can. I had a pretty good week, some poor choices but the majority were good so I'm over it. I received my first delivery of "Imperfect produce" yesterday and…
  • Hi All - 20 in 20 is a great challenge - count me in. Forum threads can get weird though (107 views with 10 comments). Wednesday weight check-in works for me. I re-started MFP July 1 with a goal to lose 35-45 by my birthday, so this fits perfect with about mid-point. I love Kelsey's comment about rocking our Christmas…
