  • @Gidgitgoescrzy - love the simplicity of your squat challenge! @Kali225 - congrats on your perfect days! I walked during work for a little bit yesterday but not as much as I'd like. First day back from vacation is always an adjustment! My back and neck are bothering me. I did something at the Beach and was feeling better…
  • CW: 155.8 PW: 157.2 A loss, yay! I'm back from a lovely week at the beach. I really needed the break. It was a great ti.e of connection with my 13 year old daughter. I swam, took long walks, read 2 novels, ate seafood, chatted with friends, and did some reflecting. I realized how much I've been struggling the last few…
  • CW: 157.2 The scale is going in the wrong direction. I've been emotional eating and feeling mentally/emotionally depleted. @jugar I'll need a pass next week. I will at the beach on a much needed vacation!
  • CW: 156.6 PW: 155.2 Stress, salt, not hydrating, & hormones. I'm getting back on track with my water, steps & eating after nearly a week of being off. I loved @jugar 's description of her diet having a rave in the kitchen, exercise is on a cruise, etc. I can relate! I had a really difficult situation come up last week…
  • CW: 155.2 PW: 155.0 I'm happy to be so close to last weeks number. I was really off plan Wed - Sat and was expecting a higher number. I am realizing the rest of this year is going to be very full both professionally and personally. Now that I can see that, I'll be spending this week thinking and experimenting with ways I…
  • @lauren_989 Thinking of your dad. I also have family in RI and live in NC. Its so hard to be far away when they are dealing with things! I have family in Tiverton & Foster. I lived in Little Compton as a teen and went to Middletown High.
  • CW: 155.0 PW: 157.6 Nice to see all the travel gain whoosh away! I didn't sleep very well. I am anticipating a difficult conversation today and it kept my brain turning. Happy Monday all and here's to a green week!
  • I went to the gym! First time in months. I didn't feel as out of shape as I expected. The walking I have been doing has made a difference. I went down a row of hooks on my sports bra which was a nice non-scale victory. I am home for the next 4 weeks - my longest stretch without travel since early March. I'm taking thus…
  • Congratulations on the job!
  • Happy sunny Saturday from North Carolina, USA. I had an incredible time at the Rock concert Thursday night. I managed to get my steps in that day and my strength exercises. I got zero Monopoly dollars Friday. I was really tired from the concert and things were tense on the family front. But today I am on track to hit my…
  • For my reward system, I'm going to try (with Monopoly money in a jar so I can see it): $15 for perfectly following my diet $10 for following the diet with Coke Zero or Gatorade Zero (trying to drop artifical sweetners but it will take time) $10 for a workout that makes me sweat $5 for 10,000 steps in a day $3 basic…
  • Thank you all for the support and understanding! You all are so right that more than my body is tired and I'm having a natural let down after the wind up to presenting at 2 conferences. Has anyone made a game of adopting new habits with rewards? I'm thinking of "paying" myself with Monopoly money to earn a massage. I love…
  • CW: 157.6 PW: 155.6 I'm Adrianne, 47 year old mom & wife in North Carolina. I work for myself from home. Here to build healthy habits for the long haul. I have a lot of health risks due to heredity/family history. Eating well, moving my body, and managing inflammation are really important to reducing my risk factors. The…
  • CW: 155.6 PW: 155.2 I keep saving a draft instead of posting! Sorry to be so late, but this is as of Monday. Another business trip, adopting a kitten, and end of year school stuff for my daughter (already?!?!)has kept me on my toes and out of some routines. So all things considered this number isn't bad. A quick trip this…
  • CW: 156.2 PW: 155.2 Well, I was due for a rebound after a whoosh then a steady week. Traveling again this week but will be intentional about what I put in my body!
  • CW: 155.2 PW: 155.6 After such a big drop last week I wasn't expecting to be in the green this week so that is a nice surprise. My daughter and I had a nice 2 days away. I didn't stay on my eating plan but did enjoy the ice cream and s'mores. We did a 5.5 mile hike and the views were beautiful. Spent the weekend doing…
  • @Gidgitgoescrazy - glad to have another Galveston Diet person here. I was born in Baltimore and still have some family there. The last couple of days I have been overwhelmed to the point of panic about clients and projects - just too many things to keep up with. I am headed out for a 2 days cabin & hiking trip with my 13…
  • CW: 155.6 PW: 158.8 @jugar - I think I gave you a different starting # yesterday but this one is correct, I checked. :) @ashleycarole86 thank you for the warm & understanding welcome back. It's been a wild couple of months and now I'm ready for a fresh start. Happy Spring! I feel like this week is a false loss - all water…
  • @jugar the original book is the Galveston Diet by Dr. Mary Claire Haver. She is on Instagram if you are on that platform. It's more than a diet though - intermittent fasting, suggested supplements, recs on exercise, etc. Starting weight 159.4
  • Hello! I'm Adrianne, just turned 47, married, mom of a 13 year old living in the mountains of North Carolina, USA. I dropped out of this group but am back! The last couple of months have been hectic. I’ve had a lot of business travel and been navigating high school enrollment for my daughter. We've had a death in the…
  • PW: 157.8 CW: 160.2 I've been off my routine, traveling, and stressed. Was more on plan today than I have been in awhile.
  • @jugar I need a pass this week for my weigh-in, I'm traveling.
  • CW: 157.8 PW: 159 Correction to my intro post - SIX weeks until my conference. I baked some chicken and roasted veg yesterday to have some dinner options at the ready. I have 2 lunches and a dinner out this week so I'll need to be very thoughtful to balance out the extra restaurant calories and salt. The salt gets me every…
  • Happy February, all. It's a great month to dig into some loving self care habits. :) I'm Adrianne, 46, living in the mountains of NC with my wife, daughter, dog and cat. I have my own business and work from home. I am motivated by a desire to be healthy and active for decades to come. My father died at 64 and at 66 my…
  • Hello! Good morning lovely group. I have fallen off of things the last few days - my meal plan, logging, this group. It happens and I am trying hard not to be too self-critical over it. I'm back now, though! January was a full month and I was spread thin across a heavy client load, networking, and planning for events I was…
  • @Gidgitgoescrazy Yup, it's a total thing! Our bodies really like the status quo. Have you considered a walking pad? I got one and it's a total game changer. My home office is tiny, a former walk-in closet but walking while I work or during meetings is awesome. I get so much positive feedback from people too! I always say I…
  • CW: 159.0 PW: 159.6 A loss is a loss is a loss so I'll take it! Enjoyed a huge salad and small calzone while watching the football games last night. I was hoping the Lions could hold on, but it was a fun game. I've did some meal prep for the week - cut veg for chicken fajitas for lunches (chicken is precooked) and made…
  • Thanks @YinxFed! Good night!
  • I made the leaderboard! I needed to see that today. For some reason I've been down on myself today and getting worried about not losing any more before my conference. It's 7 weeks away but feels just around the corner. Just gotta keep putting in the work!
  • Thank you for all the celebrations of my lunch event choices. There are a number of tempting snacks in the house right now and my wife made a lovely but big breakfast for the family today. After logging I realized it was nearly half my calories for the day! Just goes to show that one success or slip is never the whole…
