Thank you for all your welcome. I try to swim 3 times a week and walk 5K every other day. I sometime do beachbody workout when it’s cold outside.

Momtopands.. The gym is not for me either. I am a big fan of beachbody workouts. What online bootcamp do you do at home?

opheliaphoenix..I might have hit a plaqtte, hang in there, we are here for you. The scale will go down eventually.

Chunkahlunkah..I know it’s frustrating to see the scale up and down. Try to focus on how good you feel after each exercise and all the health benefit you are getting.

gardenerjoy.. walking is a great exercise. Do you listen to music or podcast while walking? Is this thread mostly for motivation and accountability?

Joe, I use the bootcamphub.com it used to be called No Excuses Workout. I actually don't dread doing workouts with this and even enjoy it! That's saying something for me!

kelijpa: And the best to you in return!


gardenerjoy: Oh no...hope you feel better today!


Joe: It sounds like you have a good workout routine, as well.


momtopands: I know that message was for Joe, but I'll have to check that link out, too. Haha.


Slimmer Me:


----------------------------------------------------


I had a little whoosh today to 205.0, so I took advantage of the timing to experiment with moving my IF eating window up an hour - therefore my weigh-in time, as well. I'm hoping that moving it won't effect my weigh-ins too terribly much over the next couple of days, like it has in the past, but we will see. I may have a bump up tomorrow. I'm just starting to notice that I'm feeling too hungry by 1pm and want to try an earlier breakfast time for awhile to see if it helps. As for the usual update, I didn't do much better on my water yesterday, so I'm thinking of joining in on a water challenge on FB to see if that will help motivate me to get more in during the day -- also hoping the earlier hour of consumption with my IF window helps, as well. I got in a half hour, intense workout on my elliptical last night, then followed up with a short 30 minute walk outside to round out the hour of exercise. I also decided to join in on a second DietBet for the month, because one of the people I follow on Instagram (@FatGirlFedUp) just broke a record for the biggest game in DietBet history, and I wanted to join in on it. Now the pressure is doubled to make sure I lose my 4% this month! Whooshes like today certainly help, so I hope I get a few more of those sprinkled in over the next few weeks...lol.

I forgot to weigh this morning, but the number wouldn't tell me much anyway since I ate less than a 1000 calories yesterday. I'm weaning myself back to normal foods, but may use this opportunity to see if I can turn myself into a one snack a day eater instead of two snacks.

yangtzer: Unless I'm walking with my husband, I listen to podcasts -- I like a couple of BBC radio soap operas! And, I only let myself listen to them when I'm walking or washing lettuce and greens in the kitchen, so when I'm craving my stories, I have to do something healthy to listen.
Our exercise thread is a great way to track exercise with other encouraging people.

Morning all. I just got in from driving my daughter to school in the pouring rain. We live less than a mile from the school and most days she walks but it really ugly out there. After getting both kids in the car and than getting the little one back in the house when we came back I got soaked but I managed to keep both of them almost completely dry so mommy win for me today.


Another little jump up today. I haven't done daily weighins in a while so it's a bit annoying to see but I know that the body changes what it wants to hold onto on a daily basis and I'll get used to it again. I recently shared this link on another post. I go back and view it whenever I'm getting frustrated by the scale. It's a really great way of explaining water retention and the whoosh we all love. Going to share in case it's helpful for anyone else. The way she is discussing it is in regards to Keto, but I believe your fat cells will behave the same way no mater how you are eating.

Gardenjoy ~ Hope you have a good weighin tomorrow when you get back on the scale!

Welcome Flower!

Ophelia ~ Yay for your whoosh! And congrats to everyone for their losses so far!

flower1: It's never too late to join in...welcome, and it's good to see you!


TooManyDimples: That was an interesting video clip to watch! It definitely explains the whole water weight/whoosh concept well and in a simple way to understand. Thank you for sharing.


gail28: Loosing inches is even more important than any numbers on the scale, so congrats! The little video that TooManyDimples posted talks about that exact thing, lol.


momtopands: Another nice recovery.


kfunk: Thanks for dropping in to say hello! You're doing well, too!


Joe: We actually just moved here from Georgia this past summer! We were about an hour or two south of you, down at Fort Benning, but now we are way over here in southeast Arizona.


----------------------------------------------------


Weigh-in was up a little to 205.4 today, which wasn't much of a surprise after a whoosh yesterday and having a sodium-laden dinner last night. I was busy this morning, so I ended up weighing in at my normal time too, so there was likely an even larger difference but no way to know for sure. It was stormy here last night, so I didn't end up going out for a walk in the evening, but I still got over 12k steps in for the day between having to go to the store and doing a half-hour elliptical workout to make up for being stuck in the house. I did a lot better on the water yesterday, but still not where I want to be on that, so keeping that as a focus for today, as well.
