I am back from my WW WI. I considered not weighing in, but just attending the meeting. Then I decided to bite the bullet. I was up 4.6# and wasn't surprised. I am back on track and I'm ready to track again. Have to get my exercise back into routine too.
Bandit, you've got a great exercise routine for yourself right now. Weigh to go!
Glad your ex is back at his home. It is wonderful that you're OP and you're walking and doing hot yoga.
Loopy, what an interesting idea
about the Diet 7-Up. I still drink Diet Coke. I have an idea that I need the caffeine around noon, but I'm sure that's an idea I have to find another solution for. Right now I'm going to put a glass by the sink and drink water more often. Thanks for the head's up about soda. Interesting that it didn't affect you this time.
Nancy----tell me about steroids. I'm sorry you gained 3#, but steroids do that. I've had to take prednisone several times-----not only does it make it harder to lose weight, it also makes you hungry. Not a combination that helps anything. However, if you need it for your jaw, etc. you need it. You can deal with the weight gain once you're off the meds. Good luck!
: I like that you're making good choices and planning ahead. That's huge for me too.
Princess, how did your leading the discussion for the TOPS group work out? I bet it's helping keep you on track. Hey, I read the 19th Wife and thought it was terrific. Right now I'm reading Winter Garden by Kristen Hannah. I'll let you know what I think. My dh and I are planting a garden this year. Ours is small: tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. But they taste fabulous once we harvest them. I just ordered a knockout rose bush. I've read good things about them, so I decided to try one. I've got all sorts of perennials in my garden and I love seeing them come into bloom. So wonderful. Right now my leaves are covering up my crocus, so I've got to get out there pronto.
Life, how was your trip?
Terri, yeah----ups and downs are yearlong. Sometimes we think it's just the holidays---or for some people the summer----that's tough. I am lucky to have plenty of people around me and plenty of birthdays to celebrate, so the social challenges and the eating challenges are quite consistent throughout the year. The good thing about WW's is that it teaches you to tackle each day at a time-----to plan for the party----and to eat healthfully.
Cherry, I'm so glad to see you're doing well. Keep on chiming in. Sorry you were ill, but grab onto that weight loss and keep on keepin' on.\
Good vibes and good luck to us all!
I hope I remembered everyone.
