Great to see some old faces back! June is looking a bit busier around here.

Awww sorry to hear you've put weight back on so quickly Ophelia but accepting where you are right now is a bit step forward, so well done! Sounds like you have a good plan - you'll be feeling much better about yourself very soon

Week One
1: No WI
2: No WI
3: 265.5

I was too curious to wait to WI so this is pre-bathroom/pre-TOM. I was hoping that the damage wouldn't be more than 266 so I'm relieved, although annoyed with myself. I looked back and realised that I haven't been eating/exercising well since mid-March, and this WI is an 8-pound gain since then. I'm hoping that post-bathroom/TOM/bloat that this'll end up a bit lower.
Yesterday I did 52 active minutes and 8450 steps, which I'll try to match or exceed today, and I bought some chicken breast this morning to get back into my chicken/pulses regular dinner.

Oh my goodness, look at all these long lost faces returning. So good to see people coming back.

Ophelia: Today definitely counts. Sorry to hear you've had a rough few months. Your schedule before you left sounded pretty brutal, so I can definitely understand how it happened. But you have so much determination, I'm sure you'll get right back on track and be at least back below where you started 2019 in no time.

Newlyn: Glad to hear that the damage isn't as bad as you'd feared.

Riestrella: I"m too lazy to calorie count, too, so I instead focus on the choices themselves. More veggies, more fruits, more proteins, and as little sugar as I can stand.

Hmmm. Seem to be going the wrong direction! Its TOM but that doesn't normally affect me actually, in fact normally I drop a kg the day before - seems the only explanation this month though! I could eat less, but don't really think i'm actually gaining fat, so i'll ride it out for a bit....

Same WI today with added really sore muscles from gardening for hours so more water retention.

Lacerta, congrats on losing 6 stone!!! Huge achievement!

Boyfriend has been sick the last few days which has thrown me off since he usually cooks while I'm at work. When I come home at the end of the day I'm starving and need food, but when that didn't happen I went to the store and got a frozen pizza instead. So frustrated with my hungry brain!

I'm having one of those days where I feel so bummed out about my weight. I ordered some more clothes for summer because I'm too big for everything else. On the one hand I really like some of the pieces I ordered, but there were some shorts that are super comfy but kinda feel like "fat pants"?? I know that sounds bizarre, but they're so practical vs. something I feel I look good in. I store all my weigh on my torso while my arms and legs remain normal, so while the waist band fits great the shorts just kinda hang loose on my legs. It's so hard for me to find shorts/skirts that work in the summer because of chub rub! It's so freaking painful for me, even if I go bare legged with no under shorts for the dresses I own within about 5 steps my legs feel raw. I hate summer with a passion haha!

Maybe when I'm a healthier weight summer won't feel as bad?!

Ophelia - Sorry to hear your new schedule made it difficult for you to stay on track. I know that feeling oh too well since I'm back having regained some weight too!

Lacerta - Yeah I think I need to just start making better choices too instead of thinking too hard. The moment I try to plan anything food related it goes out the window the next day.

Ange: I hope so! That's definitely the fastest I've ever put on weight, so it was kind of a whirlwind. Glad to be back though, and I'm looking forward to regaining some sense of control again.


Newlyn: I'm happy that the damage wasn't as bad as you expected, and I'm sure you will have that gain back off in no time!


Lacerta: I hope so! I'm really looking forward to getting my head back in the game, so to speak, like when all my "good choices" were just my day-to-day normal lifestyle. I feel out of sorts with more than just the gain itself...the obvious loss of control had me feeling like a shadow of my former self. Glad to be back here with you all again. And, congrats on the new low, by the way!!


Riestrella: Happy to see that you're back, as well! I definitely know how you feel about having a moody day about your weight and feeling like you're settling on practical clothes as opposed to something you really love in the meantime. I think summer brings that out in me, as well...lol. I hope you feel a little better tomorrow!


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


I won't be able to weigh-in on Mondays or Wednesday because I have a class that starts early that day and will be eating before I am in my weigh-in window on those days, so I just marked them all ahead of time. That said, my weigh-in today is back up a bit, but I ate very late after while watching Netflix with my husband (one of my biggest triggers is eating lots late at night while watching TV) last night. That issue will be one of the main things I'm focusing on getting back under control. I've been doing great during the day, but I've been struggling with staying up so late that I get super hungry again and end up going overboard on the snacks or just eating again, negating my prior efforts. I will check back in on Thursday...hope you guys are all doing well!

Ophelia, I feel exactly the same about 'good' choices being normal. Over the past couple of months when I was totally out of control, I couldn't even remember how it had felt to eat well and exercise. Now that I'm more or less back on track, it seems bizarre that I was eating 1500 calories of chocolate a day. And I was in a kind of haze, really groggy and unmotivated. This is such an odd, up and down process.

Thanks, Lacerta! I've seen onederland a couple of times now. If I would just stay strict on eating correctly, I'm sure it would stay down...lol.

Ophelia, I feel your pain about snacking. I have to make myself just not snack on anything throughout the day or evening, and it is so hard. I have a bad habit of just wanting to munch on something, especially when I'm stressed or having to use my brain a lot. I'm working on masters degree, and I have two weeks left...been trying to write a big paper, and oh...my...goodness...it is so hard not to munch on something salty.

Still higher than I want, but had a bit of a lapse on Tuesday and ate poached eggs and avocado on olive bread toast as a completely extra meal to what I 'd normally have, and had some crisps and wine at night when I wouldn't normally consume any calories after around 5pm. Would've been double what I normally have in calories for that day - blaming hormones again!!!

Yesterday was completely different, normal, didn't feel the urge to eat any more than normal. It shows how much we're at the whim of whatever it is that tells our brain to eat, and makes doing anything against that, so hard. Also probably shows that i'm lucky that I don't have strong urges like that very often.

Respecting all your efforts - those who are fighting
