  • Only a week and a bit left this month. I'm hanging in there. I was a bit ravenous over my period for the last couple of days, but I did the radical thing of listening to my body and eating when I was hungry (which granted was more times than usual) and while I did go over my calorie goal most days, I made sure I was eating…
  • Happy Valentine's Day! I had my first Fitness Line Dancing class and it was really fun and everyone was lovely. I was the youngest person in the class and most of the ladies were in their 50's and 60's (and two of them brought their husbands) and at least one lady was in her 70's. A third of the people had attended…
  • This week has been a mixed bag. I was away from home for three days and we ate two meals a day at restaurants and the rest was snacks. It was a last minute working trip, so I couldn't really prep anything. I started out ordering healthy, but, by the end, it was fried foods. If this type of excursion happens again, once a…
  • My February goal was to start weight training at the women's gym. I started going back to the gym in January, but I hurt my arm so I was just mainly using the treadmill. Last year when I went to this gym, there was a personal trainer that you could hire. But NOW there's a free trainer that does small (1 to 4 woman)…
  • January: -9lbs I'm really proud of my hard work in January. I've tried very hard to stay calm and thoughtful around food and control my binge eating. I've listened to my body and worked out 3 to 4 times a week and stayed away from the gym when I wasn't in a good mental place to go. In February, I am going to keep focusing…

  • So my calendar and stickers have really held me accountable and kept me motivated this month. I made a 366 day calendar on Canva, had it printed as a 36x24, and hung it on my wall. Then I ordered a bunch of custom stickers from Etsy. I've exercised 16 times this month and the most fun thing has been putting on the stickers…
  • Morning, everyone. I splurged on dinner over the weekend, mostly financially and not calorically, and order Korean kimbap and tteokbokki. I'm trying to not put any hard limits on my food, to help my binge eating. And this approach seems to be working for now. If nothing is off limits, then I can't "fail" by eating…
  • Hello, hello. I meant to check in last Monday, but we discovered MICE in our house and I've basically spent the last five days cleaning, scrubbing, and throwing things away. Did I make it to the gym? No. Did I use lots of fun muscle groups that I haven't used for a while? Absolutely. I've definitely been eating less than I…
  • Second week of the new year off to a good start! Yesterday, I walked on the treadmill; I've been bringing my kindle and it helps me forget about how long I've been walking. Today, I swam some laps and, providing me enrichment (like an animal in the zoo), there were scuba divers at the bottom of the pool doing some…
  • @kiteflyer105 Good luck on your surgery. That is all so very scary but it seems like you're in a good place mentally. I will keep you in my thoughts next Friday!

  • Hey, @kiteflyer105! I have been MIA. I got really sick with an infection in my mouth (super gross) and had a really high fever. I couldn't really eat/open my mouth much. I had to cut bananas down the middle and I ate a lot of scrambled eggs. I was in bed for about a week. I went to the dentist and then to an endodontist,…

  • 🍁So the first week of November is done and I'm doing really well. I've been to the gym once and the pool three times. I'm also eating more, which sounds counterproductive, but I'm eating at my recommended calorie goal now (about 1850) and I'm feeling better all around. 🍂What I've decided to really focus on for the next…
  • @justanotherjen13 Congrats on all your progress so far! You can definitely do it! And I love NSVs, especially when it's something that was such a hassle before and now is something that you don't even notice.
  • Oct 1: 271 Nov 1: 263 Dec 1: Jan 1: Feb 1: Mar 1: April 1: May 1: 220ish (first goal weight) Happy November, all! I'm back in the saddle and ready to commit. I have an event in early May and I'm hoping a six month mini-goal will help me keep on track. This means around a 7.5lb weight loss goal a month, which I think is…

  • Hey, ladies! SW: 260lbs CW: 271lbs GW: 185lbs I've had a great week. I've logged all my food, controlled my portions, and today I made it back to the gym for the first time in months. I swam for an hour and actually got in more laps than I thought I would! For me, it's always so easy at the beginning, but I know I need to…
  • Hey, hey, ladies. SW: 260lbs CW: 271lbs UGW:185lbs So I posted on here the 1st of the month, then lost my damn mind and went into a spiral of food madness and inactivity, but now I'm back. I've stopped eating fast food and I've cleared out my kitchen of all the unhealthy nonsense I bought. I finally got one the scale this…
  • @CupcakeCrusoe You're definitely going to be busy--good luck! And your tea party sounds super fun. I just looked up what chair-acro classes are and they look really fun and interesting! I hope you gather some engery together and get to enjoy it!
  • So I've finally jumped back on the weight loss bandwagon; it's been a while!!! I'm working on getting back into the groove and these are my goals: 🧡 Log all my food 🧡 Stay within my calorie limit 🧡 Get back to the gym & pool (3x a week?) 🧡 Take a daily vitamin 🧡 Check in here twice a week 🎃The biggest thing I'd like to…
