Trish, I know for a fact that my bump up was from overeating. I am on a crash course and have to get straight. I'm just in a miserable mood today over this. It's only 2 lbs, Carol, get over it. But I wanted a drop. It's my own fault I didn't get it.

On the other hand, you have stayed within your points. I believe that once in a while our bodies take a break to adjust to the loss before losing again.

DH was going to wait til Sunday to go to the casino but now he wants to go tomorrow. I sure hope he doesn't want to go both days. Between overeating and the casino I don't know which one is worse on me.

The IRS website still has no record of my refund. It's almost time to do taxes again. Did you ever get your stimulous, Trish?

Madeleine - giggles I'm in Strat. Small world. Just moved here. Tried to get into KWC but it wasnt to be. I'm glad though. I like the look and vibe of the place. I like the option of doing stuff without actually doing stuff. LOL. Well, correction, I like doing stuff when I feel like doing stuff and they always seem to have stuff going on and its really artsy and I'm that kind of person. I'm hoping once I get settled, i'm overcrowded with boxes as I have squeezed a house into an apartment, I'll have dropped a few pounds and can shift focus to local events. As far as teaching, I think I'm really burnt on it. I am updating the credential but I honestly I'm like "do i really want to do this?" and silently I'm like "no". Its not my passion anymore. I loved it but I didn't like the bureaucracy. I'm glad I dont have that hard hard choice of what to do right now with back to school stuff. I am at higher risk and that is why times are tough right now. My DH JUST graduated from UoG in computer engineering but is having a heck of a time finding remote work. He is a new grad and that puts us in the crack. He didnt return to school in fall so co-op and intern jobs dont apply. He was in school while working and stopped working for school so it wasnt for the 19 so we dont get cerb and cesb has stopped. So, right now things are just uncertain. So all I can do is think positively, eat on plan, support him in the job search and unpack.

I went from public health to teaching for better hours and working only 180 days a year was better than 4 tens and I could be called away to natural disasters and I had small children then. So I got recruited in the states to teach in Florida and it was a shock. Going from my own office and secretary to no teaching assistant and no budget to buy up to date supplies and the books were 10 years old. The career teachers laughed at me when I asked what my monthly budget was. I see why they laughed. In the end before I left 5 years later they had us teaching without books and paper and still gave us no budget. I got out. I keep thinking teaching online will be better but no...when I think of it, part of my pay check would probably still go into buying stuff for my students again. We shouldn't have to do that. So, I am just going to keep taking French classes at Conestoga and maybe I'll interpret or do something that I can work from home and still use my language skills. My master of ed degree is screaming at me though. "You suffered so much to get that" but if it doesn't make you happy, I guess I should stop thinking about it and feel proud I accomplished it.

Carol - If you dropped me off at cracker barrel right now and said Order or be beaten with wet noodles then I'd order the green beans and probably ham steak if it was evening and the ham steak and eggs for breakfast. BUT i purposefully chose adf for these instances. I'd go in there on an up day and eat the potato casserole, the ham steak, eggs and the fried apples. Then I'd not eat again that day and fast the next and no harm no foul. Truly only reason I eat this way is because I want to eat what I want to eat and the fasting every other day to do it seems like a reasonable trade off. Also, me being a foodie and my husband is like "meh" towards food. He can eat the same stuff over and over and over and not care. So when we go out all he orders are burgers. I bet he could compare all the burgers to every restaurant. I'm like "try something different" he's like "i'm good" .smh. I'm like suit yourself "I'll have the mega mountain fatty meal please with extra fat" Also, highlight your hair. Self care and self love is all for it.

Patty - Oh I am looking forward to the 190s. I have mini skirts I'm itching to put on and thigh high boot y'all!. I think I'm going to go through an inappropriate dress phase where there will be some event somewhere and there I am inappropriately dressed for it because I can. You guys ever think about a week of one meal a day or fasting every other day to get past the stall? A lot of FB groups I am in, that's what they do to get over a stall they just 48hr fast and eat a regular omad then 48hr fast again then eat omad then fast that last day and resume their regular diet routine and they usually whoosh. I know its not for everybody but a 1 week stall booster maybe? I just mention it cuz its easier than I imagined. I was really worried about the fast days. I'd have to build up to a 48hr fast but its probably easier than my mind is telling me. My first 48hr fast is planned for just before Thanksgiving next month. So I'll let you guys know how that goes.

________________________

My first day of French class yesterday went well. I felt a little tired because it was an up day and its weird but I feel lazy on up days and energetic on fast days. But I got all my work done for the week and just have to review each day. I'm enjoying it. I've always wanted to learn French and was intimidated because I learn by ear and due to word slurring and liaisons in French I couldnt tell what I was hearing. Now I am just having fun with it. Pronunciation is my challenge right now. I am going to switch things up and make a prepared meal for my omad today and that will take some calculation and planning because I do 500 cals on down days and DH does 600. So math and thought is called for.

Shaybelle, you are lucky that DH does EOD with you. When I DID it DH was confused if I was eating today or not. I did best when he was in the hospital. I only ate when I wanted to and got down to 179. But I don't want him in the hospital again. I will work this out somehow.

My eye exam went very well. My eyes haven't changed in the last 5 yrs. He was very pleased with my bs being normal now. I told him I wanted it to go lower but he was against it saying if I went below 5 A1c that it would be too low and could cause me to pass out. I haven't heard of that and not sure if that is true. I guess DH forgot about my little mole on my eyeball. When I told him about them taking a picture of it, he decided to ask the dr. about it and dr. showed him the picture and explained to him that is on the back part of my eye ball and will never hinder my vision. Any way I was thankful that I got a clean bill of health.

I felt blessed when I left. Then as se walked out of the eye doctor's office and I asked DH about going to Olive Garden. He had forgotten about it so we came home. We did stop for Bush's friend chicken tenders. We just got the small order of 4 which turned out to be 5. DH ate the roll and gravy but I came home and cut up some raw veggies and heated some Normandy blend veggies. Those were all 0 pts. I had my 3 pt coffee and also had my 3 pts ice cream bar. I will have my usual 4 pt dinner and so far I have 9 pts leftover. Hopefully I will either drop a little weight in the morning or at least not gain.

Shaybelle I will think about the fast to break the stall. I don't think I could do a 48 hr fast but perhaps I could switch back to doing OMAD for starters. Thanks for the suggestion.

Carol Sue I haven't checked my bank account today but so far I have not got my stimulus check. Sorry about your DH. Looks like he isn't over going to the casino and trying to make up for all that time he wasn't able to go. I hope he will just be happy going once a week.

My younger step-son's wife is an insurance underwriter. So I talked to her about my house insurance which needs to be renewed at the end of this month. My house is about 500 sq ft larger than my DS and the dwelling coverage on my house was the same as hers. I shared the info with my DIL and told her I wasn't happy with the coverage. So she checked things out for me and wrote back and told my that I was paying too much for that amount of coverage. So she got me a new policy with better coverage and $11 less plus the company covering it is in TX and not WI. I am so thankful to have her to help me.

Catch y'all tomorrow.

Just hoping to get through the supper hour now. Busy day at work, so no problem with not eating. Very tired as I slept poorly last night. Once we get to about 8 pm I am good> Some of its hunger, some habit, so is DH eating. He is not interested in food right now, as he had a large/late lunch. FYI, he has been losing weight without trying, mostly just by doing 2MAD naturally. I am jealous of course.

Have a good evening friends.

Up another .2 this am to 192.8. The bump up is smaller so maybe it will start back down again. I was sick overnight, twice. My stomach felt upset. I didn't throw up but came close. After I had a bowel movement I felt better but my stomach is still gurgling. Last night I was watching reruns of My 600 Lb Life. Dr Now told the woman " You have to stop blaming this on your family. " It made me think I have to stop blaming this on DH.

Shaybelle, you have a very busy life, so many things going on. It makes for an interesting life. Once I retired my life slowed down. I don't have many outside activities and I sure don't miss going to work. I never had a break. I had no children so I didn't even have maternity leave. Never a break between jobs. Retirement was an adjustment but I'm fully adjusted now after 10 years.

Sorry you didn't get to go to Olive Garden, Trish. Our restaurants were only allowed to have 25% capacity but I know some are more crowded than that. Next week they can increase to 50% but most are already there.

Today we are going to the casino in W Va. That one is my favorite but it's a longer ride and the rest stop is closed. No restrooms. That can be a problem for me on long rides. I have to limit my coffee this morning. Food is limited there, too. I don't think they will ever open the buffet.

DH just ASKED me if I want breakfast. That's a first. Probably because I was sick overnight.

Carol Sue Sorry you were sick. I hope you are feeling better and won't have any problems going to and from the casino. I didn't miss the Olive Garden really but I guess in a way it helped not to go because my weight stayed at 191. So I had a .2 lb bump up this week but I guess that isn't so bad.

Mad I hope your evening went well and you were able to successfully fast.

Well I've been on Green plan for a couple of weeks and no change from when I was on Blue plan which is really my favorite plan so I am going back to it and staying on it. In fact the weight I actually lost so far was on the blue plan and since changing to green didn't change anything, why not do my favorite plan. I'm even thinking about using the blue plan and CAD together but not sure of that one yet. Will see. One thing that will probably change on this in a few weeks is that I will stop the low pt ice cream since we seem to be going into cooler temps here in Central TX. I don't seem to need or want the ice cream when the weather turns warmer. I can put them in the big freezer and have them when the little boys come to visit or DH will eat them. I am bumping my bicycle exercise back up to 30 minutes but am thinking about breaking it up into (2) 15 minute times. I've heard that it works better to break up your exercise even into 10 minute rounds so might even try that hoping to get this weight moving downward. I'm also thinking about cutting my IF eating window too but will see how that goes. The main thing is to stay within 8 hr window for now, but I seem to remember that my weight loss was when I was doing 5 or 6 hr eating window.

Pipsicle, Shaybelle and lurkers

I better get busy. Hope everybody has a great day.

Trish, I think I have to have a shorter eating window most days, but not necessarily every day. And increase vegetables. When I was losing I felt a little bit hungry at bedtime and I haven't felt that for a while. My food quantities have been increasing gradually.

I think all the WW plans are good but it depends on the individual. Trying different ones led you to the one best for you. You have always been one to switch around and that's not necessarily a bad thing. You don't know which is best unless you try. I would love to go back to no dinner like I did when DH was in the hospital but dinner is his main meal. It's hard to work around it. I can only hope to limit dinner as much as I can and NO eating afterwards. I can do this.

Carol Sue I agree. I know I have changed up a lot to find what works or maybe what I can live with as my SC doctor said to do. I remember when I was doing so well on IE it was because I didn't have to eat unless I wanted to eat and I ate only when hungry. I too have to work around my Hubby's way of eating and he likes one main meal around 3ish. I used to try to make that my dinner but somewhere along the way I got away from that.

I think a lot of things changed when I moved to TX and I tried to work around going out with Daddy and DS for breakfast. Before I moved here I liked eating breakfast around 10 am and then ate dinner at 3ish with DH. Then they wanted to wait until 10:30 to eat and the time got switched around. Plus I kind of followed CAD back then where I had protein/non-starchy veggies for breakfast and ate my carby meals at main meal so I could eat whatever DH ate. But when eating with Daddy and DS at Whataburger, I couldn't do that so I changed a lot of things up to fit into their plan. I'm not blaming them. It was just that my lifestyle changed.

Today I decided to have an egg/bacon/Brussel sprout omelet with a little bit of 2% shredded cheddar cheese for only 4 pts. I am going to make a Turkey Taco Salad with Nacho flavored Dorritos for lunch and since the weather is cooler, I'll have my yogurt with banana and 1/8 oz of walnuts sprinkled on top for dessert and my milk. I still have enough pts to have a snack if I need it but the goal is to not eat anything else until tomorrow at breakfast. This will be more of a CAD plan using WW blue plan along with IF. Got my first 15 minutes done after breakfast instead of before and will do 15 more after dinner plus I've done about 15 minutes of calisthenics to round out 45 minutes of exercise for today. So here is hoping for a better week this next week.

Good luck dear friend. We can do this. I'm thinking we need to do this because this is how our bodies worked when we were growing up and they like it when we are eating this way.

Hi friends: 156 this am after my fast yesterday. I am not sticking to plan today, as I was working through the night, then had my eye tests.
Last weeks was for the potential glaucoma, and I am borderline for that. I will be followed as before.
This week was the basic exam for my prescription, (hardly changed, so I will not bother with new glasses) and for the dryness.
They basically put little bits of paper "wicks" in my eyes and measure how much of my tears they collect in five minutes. The normal is 10 millimetres up the wick.
One eye had 2 mm and the other 0. All this supports the diagnosis of Sjogrens syndrome. Another autoimmune disease. My mum had it, and may celiacs do as well, so not a surprise. Mostly treatment is for symptoms, so I will be using some specialized eye drops, some are more like an ointment. The idea is to use them more often to prevent the dry feelings. Its good to know, and nothing unexpected, but dang, this is a part of my family history I would have liked to have skipped.

Carol: hope you are DH had a good time at the casino and the drive went ok. Surprised the rest stops are closed if restaurants can open. Seems odd.

Trish; at least you didn't really gain on the green plan, and enjoy the blue.

Shaybelle: I hope you are doing well on your EOD plan as well. For me its the sticking to it that is hard.

Carol - It just seems like a busy life but all this takes place inside my house. LOL So to me it doesnt feel so busy. Running around always seem super busy to me. I'm still recovering from **** week where I was making 3 trips a day from the house to the apartment and its an hour drive each way. I think I'm coming out of it now. But I was toast! Just done! LOL Well a lot of retirees I know seem to be living their best lives. Just traveling around. Visiting people and doing all sorts of activities.

Patty - I never thought to put brussell sprouts in an omelet. Hmmmm....I'll file that away for future reference.

Madeleine - I'm actually thriving on adf. Fast days are ok for me. I have never been able to fast before and be ok with it. But also the motivation to keep going wasnt there either. I'm just sick and tired of feeling like I'm way older than I am. I dont want to be frail elderly. Plus I have 53 weeks before my 50th birthday and I have goals and I aim to meet them. The weight has got to go. I have DISH so the weight is making it worse. If I didnt eat cannabis I'd go back to being in debilitating pain everyday. So for me, its no problem to stick with it when I think of the alternative. So the price could be higher. At least I sacrifice food every other day and not something I care more about. So I'm just thriving. Losing weight, I get to eat what I want every other day and I fast every other day to make it happen. Good trade off. You can do it Madeleine and you will do it. You can do hard. You've done hard again and again.

Mad Looks like your eye exam went like mine did. No surprises. I figure it is good when the doc tells me that I haven't changed enough to spend a couple of a hundred dollars to get new glasses. He gives me a prescription in case I break my glasses I have now. In fact, 4 yrs ago before we moved here I bought 2 pair of glasses on one of those 2 pair for one price. Of course by the time you add stuff to it, it still is expensive. LOL. Any way, I put one pair away and didn't use them often. I finally needed to switch to them this year because I've set on the pair I had been using. You have done great on your diet plan and IF in the past and I suspect you will again.

Shaybelle When I did Carbohydrate Addict's Diet, I ate a lot of omelets and never thought of putting Brussel sprouts in it until a couple of weeks ago. I usually use rice broccoli or cauliflower in it but I had bought the Brussel sprouts to put in my salad and keep forgetting it. Seemed like a good idea to put in the omelet to use it up and wasn't bad.

Carol Sue I hope your day at the casino went well.

Well I did 2MAD today about 5 1/2 hrs apart. I did get hungry but drank my usual cup of coffee hoping to ward off the hunger because I'm sure that is just having to get used to not having a snack or 3rd meal. Now I've waited too long to eat now because I would be outside the 8 hr window. I also earned 7 exercise pts too. So D1 back on blue, shorter IF eating window has actually gone well.

Good night.

GOod morning friends: up very early because I was in bed by 7 last night. I had slept 4 hours during the day after my all nighter, and just needed the sleep.
I just going to relax on the couch and drink my tea, maybe read or watch tv, if I doze off again that's fine. I just needed out of bed.
157 today, I ate ok yesterday, but did not want to cook much. Also the people who gave birth yesterday have a honey business and gave me some of their product, and I had sugar, well honey for the first time in years. What a treat. But time to put that away now, LOL.
So today is meant to be a fasting day. Just have to keep myself busy later today when the hunger hits.

Have a good day friends

Down .2 this am. DH had another good night at the casino. We didn't get home until midnight which is late for us. I only slept a few hours but will probably go back to bed soon.

Not much going on here. Weight is down .2 lbs to 190.8. Wish it had been that yesterday but glad it is down. I did do 2MAD more of a CAD day but today going for 2MAD but just WW eating. I had 5 pts for breakfast a 2 egg/bacon/cheese taquito and will have fish for lunch. Exercise today will be housework etc.

Carol Sue Glad DH had a good day at casino. Hope you get some rest.

Mad Sounds like you are trying to catch up on the sleep lost when you were up all night working.

Hope everybody has a good day.
