  • Absolutely! I hope you're loving this journey, because you are absolutely KILLING IT!!
  • I'm going to make sure I weigh the next lot of baked beans I do for my son. We have Waitrose and Tesco own brand at home just now (how do you like the Lidl ones, BTW?). @middlehaitch Baked beans were one of the products that I literally gasped when I saw the price at a US supermarket. I feel your pain! @manderson27 What…
  • Something like this is the subject of an ongoing topic in one of the other boards: https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10762986/why-is-so-little-attention-given-to-maintenance/p1 While there are a lot of maintainers here, there are also a lot of others (myself included) who have had success then left then had…
  • Fantastic news!!! Sending you all the good vibes for successful surgery, swift recovery and continued success in working toward your goals!
  • When your OH always asks if you've logged it before throwing the wrapper out ;) When eating at work is easy because you did all your weighing and logging before you left the house that morning. (Seriously, I got out of minuting a 2+ hour meeting this morning and just grabbed something pre-logged and dug in, ridiculously…
  • @koalathebear I lived in the SF Bay Area about a decade ago when there were fires, not with us but near enough that the skies were hazy and everything smelled smoky. You and your countrymen have my absolute sympathy! Stay safe, do what you need to do to stay well (physically and mentally), and please do report back…
  • Heartless snipping till: This. Absolutely. And echoes a conversation I was having just the other day. Not least because I can't think of anyone whose version of 'good' and 'bad' I would be willing to absolutely buy into (not even @AnnPT77 !)
  • I LOVE this. I've never been a 'start on the big date/resolution' kind of person; I'd rather start a new thing on a Thursday than a Monday, and don't want my first half-marathon to be run a year my age ends in 0 or 5. So glad for you, @martianspuds , that life is trending well and well in hand! My NSV is that I've…
  • @ReenieHJ If you're the kind of person who likes understanding the 'why' and 'how' of things, I would also recommend The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. It looks at how habits are formed and therefore how (to a certain extent) we can be deliberate about forming habits. I totally agree with @lemurcat2 as well: challenge…
  • I feel your pain, and am right there with you! I only very sporadically logged between 22 December and 1 January (except stepping on the scale every morning) and don't even have a current exercise regime to fall back on. So what I'm doing is going back to the absolute basics: logging everything. I was about 200 calories…
  • This one always cracks me up: in the UK while you will find your fruit and veg on one of the perimeters, the opposite one is almost always booze. And if you want your dairy, it's frequently in the centre of the store. I always have to remind myself of the American layout when I visit my family back home. Particularly in…
  • Yes, this! I'd not clocked it before, but this year has been amazingly noticeable. (Though, being female of middle age, I have other factors influencing my hunger...) Happy Scale says: I'm weighing just over 1 kg more than my lowest December rate. It's very slow going down, but I'm pretty sure I know why (sleep being a…
  • Brilliant! This looks thorough, and I do love a graded plan (C25k was a revelation!). I'll give it a read and hopefully be following in your footsteps soon (not with a paring knife, though! That does not sound like a good weight-loss plan!! I hope you're recovering well and not finding it too intrusive in daily life. It's…
  • @Antiopelle , what push up challenge do you use? It's one of the things I really struggle with doing (inclined is about the best I can do, but my planks are fine, it's just adding the movement...)
  • I'm currently aiming for 57kg, again pulled out of the 'middle of the BMI-range' hat, but I'll also be talking to my doctor about what I should be aiming for. It'll ideally be a 3-kg range either side of that (no lower than 54, no higher than 60), I'm mesomorphic as well so just one weight is as likely me winning the…
  • The past few months have been a time of me finally owning what I need to do to stay firmly in the healthy range (rather than thinking 'I know how to do this' smugly and then finding myself too big for my clothes - it's only happened once, but once is enough), and they include daily weighing (not something I've ever done…
  • I love that you're incorporating movement, and remembering that it doesn't have to involve changing clothes!! Welcome, @DyneSalcar , you're in a good place!
  • Although more of us may be in an overfull place than a jiggly place, this does strike me as a bit of weight loss cheer...
  • Same. I am that runner in my profile. Laura was my 6 AM bestie :D
  • Amazing work!!! That smile on your face says it all!!!
  • Oatmeal keeps showing up on here. I know what my breakfast tomorrow will be!!
  • @RCPV Stunning!!! I'd want to walk, too ;)
  • The cookies sound wonderful! The faff of rolling out is one of the things that keeps me from doing anything but drop or sheet cookies (and I have so many cookie cutters!!!) I may try some snickerdoodles if I have time - one of the few cookies of my mom's that I actually like! We're mostly better. It hit me last, but the…
  • @RCPV Love that! We're in an area of the UK with more people than the infrastructure was ever intended for, so I joke that it's quicker to walk than drive anyway! As an aside, some of the most beautiful hikes I've taken were in your state!
  • A pre-holiday gift: bumping a solid post.
  • Some time after first discovering this thread I observed my 9 year old. Dude is seriously into his trains, and especially loves watching the wheels up close, which involves a lot of eyes-very-near-table-top-level (and a LOT of back and forth...). To find the optimal position, he moves, and moves again, and moves some more.…
