  • I've been trying to do that this month! I have a journal I keep at my bedside, and try and write in it daily how I'm feeling. I don't always get to it, but I try.
  • I think I'm going to get those like a glove pants!!!
  • thanks all! good conversation, and obviously,no one right answer. I think for me personally, less frequent weigh ins will ultimately be better for me. will likely do monthly. We'll see how it goes. I just want to do something different this time around, so I don't repeat my cycle of losing weight only to regain it. I have…
  • @Xellercin I'm so sorry for what you are facing. Thank you for sharing. Peace and healing to you
  • It's so easy to find excuses to drink (and to overeat!). I was thinking the other day of how stressful the past 2 years have been for those of us who work in healthcare, so of course I over indulged! But, then I realized, life has been stressful for everyone, not just healthcare workers. And life is always stressful. So,…
  • @Womona I have done some crochet. I need to pick it back up. That, and get back to guitar!
  • I'm going to put in a plug again for the FB support group I mentioned above. It really is a wonderful group, and so supportive. Recovering from a broken ankle is hard, and I feel some of the replies you've gotten on this thread are both judgemental and dangerous. You are absolutely doing the right thing by resting and…
  • Couple things as someone who had to recover from a trimal fracture with dislocation requiring surgery (I have a rod, a plate, and several pins) 1. Talk with your Ortho doctor before doing anything. I was interested in doing seated exercises, but my surgeon was adamant that I not do *anything* that might put stress on my…
  • Reading all these comments is inspirational. I definitely struggle with the "just one" drink as well, so I'm just going AF. So far, I feel really good. I'm sleeping SO much better. I wake up early (before my alarm), but sleep through the night. Which is new for me! I'm used to waking up several times a night. The witching…
  • Check out fitness blender--it's a husband/wife couple, it's free, and they have a TON of work out videos, that incorporate strength training/cardio. For a small fee (~9-$15) you can buy a program in which they plan out classes for you. I really like them a lot.
  • I'm in! So far, been AF all 3 days in January. Really want to do completely dry January. I just have been drinking more and more over the past 2 years,and need to put the brakes on.
  • @makattack220 glad to hear there are some positives to the program. I think it may work for some, especially the group sessions. But as someone who is *trying* (not necessarily succeeding, but trying) to be more aware of the environmental impacts of my food decisions, noom definitely didn't work for me. It really does not…
  • Also, daily weigh ins area deal breaker for me, too.
  • I just cancelled my noom after the free trial. Really didn't work for me and here's my issues with it: 1. No way to put in a recipe and have it calculate calories, fat, protein etc. Their solution to this was I just add the ingredients to a meal and save that meal. But, for instance,the lentil kale soup I make serves 10.…
  • Hugs, prayers, good vibes, all of it sent your way. It never rains, but pours....
  • But I do love their free, online videos. And of all the crappy diet advice out there, this is probably the least harmful.
  • Thank you! Especially when you look at scientific, academic articles on obesity and the hormones that regulate hunger/fullness in the brain. And then you have eating disorders, which are another thing entirely. Intuitive eating is great for some. Not for me.
  • realize that I am a little late, but in for May. really like all the kindness, wisdom and insight here. I'm going to a yoga/meditation retreat this weekend, no alcohol allowed! i will do a lot of reflection there, and decide whether I want to be abstinent or just more mindfully moderate.
  • I've just started meditating too. There's a free app, Stop, breathe, think. There are some great guided meditation on there.
  • I hate hate hate vanity sizing. I'm not a size six, and I know this. Slapping a size six label on a pair of size 8 (or even 10) pants just pisses me off, because then I have the wrong size in the dressing room when I bring in size 8 or 10. Or worse, when I order on line.
  • I like a slice of really good bread toasted, with goat cheese and berries on top I also like bread with almond butter, banana slices and chopped walnuts I make these breakfast bars sometimes, where I put almond butter, dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, etc), coconut, a little bit of oil as binder, cinnamon, nutmeg. blend…
  • Now I really want bread.....
  • Ahhh. A really good, fresh home made bread made from a culture that has been going for over a year...... Not boring at all. But I do love a good pasta, especially if it's fresh pasta. I love baking bread and making fresh ravioli and fettuccine. I've lost 25 pounds continuing to eat those things. Just had to cut back on…
  • I need something that gets me over an emotional/motivational plateau. I've not list any real weight for about 3 months, but it's because I've been a slacker. At least I haven't really gained weight. Feel ready to get back on track now and lose that last 7pounds
  • I'm so sorry you are going through a difficult time. But keep doing what you've been doing all along-- logging, portion control, striving to stay within calorie goal, move/exercise when you can. Life will not change. It will ALWAYS throw curve balls and stress at us. Part of sustaining weight loss is learning how to manage…
  • Breakfast: smoothie with cocoa powder, fig, banana, milk, almond butter and black coffee Lunch: grilled tofu cubes with arugula, grapes, walnuts, celery, shallot. and an apple (just ate the apple. it was honestly one of the best apples I have ever had) snack: smoothie with blueberries and greek yogurt dinner: left over…
  • I have to say, he is funny, approachable, and a great teacher. Even though I'm still a beginner essentially, he didn't look down on me or condescend to me. He took a little extra time to help me. Really awesome. This was my daughter's third class with him. My first.
  • required for all kids. this is a recent change. A bunch of our kids went to Battle of Atlanta a few years back, and face masks were required to spar for kids. so all our kids had to buy face masks that day from vendors (much more expensive!) and fight with facemasks when they never had before. and I guess they do take some…
