  • I love the idea of this but I struggle hard to pay attention when I am on the treadmill. Sometimes while I am walking outside, I listen to true crime podcast and look suspiciously at my neighbors.
  • @ladyoftherocks First, you look stunning! Love the gazebo look. I totally see now how big of a pain it can be to decorate yourself-- mostly because YOU know what you want but you also have to be getting ready the whole time. We have a free venue-- ceremony and reception area with round tables and chairs and all that. We…
  • @goal06082021 Thank you for the Torrid tip! I'll definitely have to check it out. We are just a hair too late for using Covid to our benefit. Had we been earlier, I thought about just having a small ceremony and sending off pictures and a letter to everyone saying we did it. Our state is now pretty much fully open. I want…
  • Haha! The dang icebucket! We are definitely going cheap on the wedding and trying to plan an amazing honeymoon. ... well depending on Covid restrictions.
  • Love this so much! We actually wanted to do something like this at his house originally! We had to change plans because there were more family people who HAD to be there vs. the people we actually wanted there. Like my nana and my aunt-- they have super loud personalities and would overtake the whole day, but I couldn't…
  • Note to self: Do not be late.
  • I definitely needed to read through this all of this advice. Not because I don't know these things, but I need to be reminded and check my emotions. Like you, OP, I finally hit my grove with weight lost in the past few weeks. Now, I am on that 3rd week and saw a .10 loss on the scale this week. The fun beginning losses are…
  • I am on my way back down after a gain and honestly starting is the hardest part. I was down to 219, got back up to 252, and now I am 242. I was really struggling to lose and felt like I was on a rollercoaster, losing a little M-F and gaining it back on weekends. After I got a couple good weeks under my belt, I felt really…
  • I was definitely up after shot 2 but, like others, I drank so much water. I felt like I was battling a dehydration headache with water-- when I felt it coming on, I chugged water and then within 10-15 minutes, I'd be fine.
  • Letting my nerd flag fly here. But I started my own little study on how accurate the Apple Watch Calories are for me. I am using the TDEE method for counting calories now and banking a few weekend calories, but I'm watching my weight over the next couple months to see how accurate the Apple burns are. I just started this…
  • Love this! It sounds like a lot of people keep their hands busy. I can crochet and play the guitar (ish)...
  • Awesome accomplishment! And a good lesson just allowing yourself to be uncomfortable... I think If I could get some solid time under my belt, then it wouldn't be quite so uncomfortable. I have had times were this wasn't a problem-- I didn't even own a TV until the past 3 years and 3 years ago I was successfully…
  • Right, I am just trying to get ideas on the plan lol. I've known this was an issue for a while, I have just been unsuccessful at implementing anything. So I'm just trying to think it through-- I maybe over thinking. My current plan of action is to see if I can sub-out some of my Netflix time for a while with something…
  • What did you do to disassociate Netflix from food? Was it just quitting both that lead to new habits?
  • How long did it take to break that habit? I definitely think it is my habit and normally I am seeking out some type of sugar for that mental release. For the 100th time, I have removed all sweets from my house because I just can't handle them in moderation right now. I will eat them until there is none left.
  • @missysippy930 @KHMcG @janejellyroll Wow all readers. It makes sense, sometimes scrolling FB helps. But sometimes it hurts depending on the political climate. Then I have to decompress from my decompress time lol! I bet if I found a good book series, I could get into it. I've always been a book binger though.
  • Thanks! I don't find that I am depressed, but I do find myself to be more anxious than normal. I feel like I am trying to feed something in my brain to release that "Ahhhh" feeling. I went to the doctor this morning to get bloodwork to make sure all of my hormones are working properly.
  • @girlwithcurls2 I don't know whhhhyy that just sounds so peaceful to me! Folding while listening to something does sound like something I would enjoy. @PAV8888 I have definitely been trying to make myself get out more with the time change. I think Covid gave me an excuse to stay in and be lazy and I have to encourage…
  • I agree with cmriverside. I would maybe make sure she hits her protein goals and that is about it.
  • Saw this the other day at Target and thought of this conversation: 53g can be 1/3 of a cup or 1/2 of a cup. You choose. :)
  • I had a similar question about this, hope you don't mind OP. I set my calories using the TDEE method but set myself as very sedentary. So I'm eating 1500 calories a day-- I set it to lose 1.5lbs a week. But I've been adding in movement everywhere I can and my Apple watch says I am burning 2600-3000 all day. I'm wondering…
  • I definitely feel this. I lost 40lbs at one point, then my weight slowly crept up 10lbs. Then during March 2020 alone, I put on 20lbs. I lost my job then got a new one and felt so relieved to have a job that I just ate all the fast food. Then I freaked out about it and kept trying to get it off really quick before anyone…
  • I'm not super opinionated about this. For me, 2020 was just so exhausting that I could not keep up with all of the information being thrown at me. Normally, I am a thinking person who would try to see both points of view and then make informed opinions but I'm not a scientist and I didn't have the capacity to keep up with…
  • @springlering62 I think this is a sign that I need to make french toast with this bread. I told my BF this weekend that I wanted it and he has never had it so I had to explain what it was. Then today I was telling my mother that I had to tell him what it was. Basically, I have french toast on the brain!
  • I tried both of these and just wasn't in love. However, since posting this thread, I have been able to just do 2TBSP of half-n-half in my coffee with some splenda and still really enjoy it for only 40 calories. If I drink 3 in a day it is only 120-- a far cry from my original amount!
  • Woah! Almost the exact same. Definitely going to read.
  • Thank you for the replies! So I find myself to be pretty level headed about weight loss at this point in my life. I do see it as adjusting my lifestyle and do not have an end date nor am I doing anything really drastic. In the past month, I have made honest logging a habit and just trying to do a little more physically. I…
  • Ah okay!!! So here is a couple Louisiana things: Jambalaya Gumbo Most out-of-towners don't know the difference between these two. Gumbo sounds mysterious, but it is actually just like a soup over rice. You make a dark (not burnt) roux, throw in some onions and bell peppers and whatever meat/seafood then fill with broth.…
  • Welcome! I'm fairly new here too (though I've been on other calorie counting sites) and have also lost weight then regained. Glad to hear you have (mostly) recovered... you got this! I caught myself wandering last week and told myself to get it together. We can do this! Add me if you'd like!
