Hi all! Seems like a good place this!
I am 78 and have fybromyalgia too with other ailments that leave me somewhat disabled. So exercising is not in my capabilities other than a very slow hobbly walking! ..
My weight has been rather stuck for quite a while but I am keeping to my calorie count diet and hoping that it will decide to shift again soon.... ever hopeful!?! ..

Welcome Emaline29 and I wish you well and happy trails on your journey. Are you able to swim? I know that there is a workout on PBS I see every once in a while for people with Pain. I know that you are going to do great! I am glad that you are joining us.

G'day everyone, and welcome to the new, I hope everyone is doing well and staying focused and keeping on track, I have been good the last couple of days, and I have a weigh in tomorrow.
I have been busy studying so that is always good when I study I forget about food. Keep up the good work all, and it is great that we are all in this together and I have gained so much motivation and inspiration here so far

Goodmorning everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I was good as well, Julie. I stayed on plan, even though the Superbowl was on and there was lots of junk food floating around my home for the game. I have my weigh-in today, and I'm uploading my progress photos. I've lost a lot this month, and I hope that the progress is reflected in the pictures.

Have a great day,

Rob

Uggh. I'm up one pound, back to 217. The progress photos didn't show what I thought they would (I can't see too much of a difference). What a bummer! Anyway, here's to a better day today.

Hang in there Rob. I'm down 15 and not seeing any real difference either, but I have found a few things that do seem to fit not quite as snugly. I find that I have to get to a full 10% loss before I notice much of a difference - and almost twice that to legitimately move down a size in clothing.

Thanks, April. It's just disappointment rearing its ugly head that's all. Ironically, when I committed to doing monthly photo updates on my blog, it was for this reason. I thought that if I failed to meet goals and/or expectations, it was for all to see. Now it's time to double down for March.

Hello everyone , I hope everyone is feeling motivated and focused today. Rob I wouldn't beat yourself up over a pound, it could be fluid weight, and I know you will do better next weigh in. My weigh in wasn't to good either, I didn't gain but I didn't lose either, oh well next week is another time. I just had a lovely Thai Curry Tuna and Veggie stir Fry for lunch, and I have a had a good morning studying.

Take care, stay safe and be happy everyone

Thanks, Julie. I have to keep this in perspective, and it's only a pound. Your lunch sounds yummy!

Have a great day all!

Argh!! Up and Down and Up and Down on this darn scale. Argh!! It is very frustrating and makes you want to throw your hands up in the air (oh wait... if I do that then I can put weights in those hands LOL) and Eat eat eat. Argh. I more day to see if it will go back in the right direction tomorrow. Just need to do this today. Mantra....

I'm with you. I have a love/hate relationship with my scale. Sometimes I approach it gingerly, softly stepping up on it in an effort to weigh less! lol

I bounced up this week - finally back down to just .2 over my ticker, and hopefully, I'll see some actual loss for my "official" WI tomorrow.

and at "devil box"!!
