144.4 a new low
1056 cal yesterday, missing the under 1000.
Got 8 hours sleep. It could be that that helped move the scale, but hard to know.

Jen- congrats on several days logging and the below 185! And it looks like you kept the calories down yesterday! Super! Next time I go t the south will have to try some lightly fried food. Around here other than fish fry and the typical fries and onion rings, and festival food, deep fried food is not so much of a thing. I will do stir fry though fairly frequently. What a tough time for your 20 year old and you. I so think the justice system is flawed in not helping folks get jobs and lead a decent life. That is what we all want isn't it. I think it terrible that folks who have no money have to pay during jail time. Serving should be enough. Sorry, I could go on and on about this as a good friend's son has been in and out of jail and as a result my eyes were opened to the flawed system. My thoughts are with you and your son. Hope things go better for him.

My daughter turns 20 this summer. My two sons are 24 and 27 and will also age up this summer.

Ciecie- I too remember when appliances lasted forever. I do have a 27 year old refrigerator. Nice that you got away to Lake Placid. It is beautiful there. Way to go on the walking!

GrannyNancy- Your kayaking trip sounds like an adventure! Really fun. Makes me want to go kayaking. Last time I did it was this winter in a New Zealand fjord. If you do find a method that works for pee without a bathroom, I would like to know!

JulesMarion- Welcome back!

Rachel- Way to keep the calories down to 1310 last week. Nice to have company in needing to keep the calories low. Agree one day and for me sometimes one minute at a time is a helpful way to go. Just have to get into that mindset rather than the woe is me, discouraged mindset that I have been feeling recently. One other way to look at it is that my body is very efficient with the calories, so actually that would have been a biological advantage back in the day needing fewer calories to keep the energy up.

Nancylmrn- Great to have you back in the fray. Come here sometime if you don't like heat. Expect a high of 63 today. And it is beautiful right now with the spring in full swing. Actually we do get some heat in the summer can get in the 90's but nothing like what folks get down in SC. The worst heat I have experienced was in Malaysia, where after about 1 minute outside I would be drenched in sweat. And they all like to eat hot soup for lunch!

Ok- here is a not very lovely part of me that I will share.
I was talking with a dear friend that lives far away. She said that due to a recent move she lost 10 pounds without even trying- down to 134. She is close to 60 years old and still looks good in a bikini. I love her- but I am jealous that she can just do this without trying when I am trying so hard.
Why can't I have her metabolism? But then she has to take thyroid medication and I would not wish that on anybody. We all have our things that are good or bad about our bodies and it makes no sense to be envious.
Think I will go meditate on loving kindness....

Good Morning, Everyone!

Zallie I understand and can relate to the metabolism situation. My friend is slim and she eats more than me. Since becoming friends, she has improved her eating because she used to eat a lot more junk. But anyways, I try to be as active as much as possible, eat healthy, and do the best I can. That's all we can do.

Last night: Full Body Stretch & few stretches from Dr.
This morning: Oxycise

Calories for yesterday: 1515 +
Weigh in on Saturday

Have a Blessed day!

I love today's devotion!

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters

June 4

Romans 5:5
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

There will be those days when we feel we're never going to lose any weight. No matter what we do, the pounds stick with us, and we begin to feel foolish for ever supposing we could lose weight. We find ourselves ashamed for believing that we can lose weight and ashamed at having such defeatist thoughts. It's a very hard position to be in. Luckily, we never really have to feel ashamed of the things we try to do that are good and right. Even though we sometimes lose heart, we still have the love and support of the Lord, who will strengthen us and guide us through His Spirit.

Today's thought: I'm proud of what I'm trying to do!

Good Morning 136.6 - the expected bump. Today is planned and I already have in 10,000 steps.

Zallie - well - I had to make peace with the idea that life is not fair when it comes to just about everything including weight loss. Yep right now the default method of getting out and dropping your pants does not work on the lakes where there are too many other people plus I hate getting out on shorelines with only sandals on as that is a great place for snakes. Plus nothing like having some one show up while you are midstream and having to stand up fast. I am going to research some of these devices made for this purpose.

Rachel - You really are doing well!

Granny, my bladder is insane, I wouldn't let it spoil something as fUn as that.I'd get the shepee thing...great idea. Wow that sounds so fun and adventurous...something I'm missing...I wish I had a buddy to hike with...I'm like a magnet for bad guys ..I mean I have mace and a taser, but I'd have to really convince myself to use them ..I thought I was being adventurous walking around here...it's woodsy, so has a hiker type feel..but then creepy guy made me scared...I grew up camping in the mountains of upstate NY..but I was always with my cabin members and counselors.

Zallie, hugs I do want to say, the studies show the body is incredibly efficicient at dropping your calories when it perceives famine (low calories). The way to shake it up is to have every once in a while cheat days or high calorie days...so a festival splurge followed by a low calorie day..

if your goal is 1200 average for 2 days =2400. It would be acceptabe and more metabolism inducing to do 600 cs one day and 1800 (festival day) the next or 800 then 1600 the next..with an average of 3600 you can shake it around even more..I hope that makes sense. Don't worry about super metabolism people, plus that's amazing she's on thyroid meds and HAS that metabolism.

I lost the most weight doing ADF. Where I drank acv/water/honey one day and just ate, no tracking the next. If I had an event, I'd switch up.

about the system, very much messed up. He was doing so well working and in College and his gf PO came to his work to ask about her, searched him, found weed on him, then left after embarrassing him, went to his apt and tossed his apt and found empty baggies and a scale and put him back in jail. Causing him to lose his job and his schoolwork forcing hI'm to taken an F for the class.

made me angry. I'm supposed to call the opportunity house up there and see if the po called them, if he didn't call him and ask him to call them for him.

ciecie, so glad you didn't have to go through that again. We just went through 2 washing machines and a dryer..so yeah wish things lasted longer like they used to.

Rachel, that's so awesome he is gaining more and more mobility! You didn't answer if it was a stroke or not?

Diana, as always, I love the devotionals. I know people who DON'T eat when they are stressed, I get jealous of that...I did feel some shame I have been enjoying those sweet treats still, the designers of the CAD do say that people on the diet HAVE TO OVERCOME shame...that's why I decided to post my food anyways..

so last night, I ate two Brazil nuts and took all my gummy vitamins and had a cup of herbal tea with xylitol and whipped cream.

I was 184.6 yesterday and 183.4 today. Nice drop, but I think I ovulated..not sure because signs disappeared, still feel frisky though...

my friends daughters kids and her sisters kids are here and they have the kitchen packed with snacks ..I have to walk through cheese balls and such to make a cup of coffee

good thing I'm not hungry in the morning!!

Jendiet - OMG - In the scope of things that is SOOOOO minor and for this they are messing up his life? I can understand. My husband once bounced a small check. Never got a registered letter because he had moved and wound up having to pay the check pay court fees, and go on probation and get rehabilitated. Had to have court permission to travel out of state. He could have just paid the check but the charges were so high he needed to make payments. He was maybe 22 at the time. Meahwhile the rich boys who rape young women get a slap on the wrist...............justice.........

Iím back at my routine. My fatal flaw with eating well is that I do well, then I have a normal variation in eating (thereís always some holiday or birthday, etc). I have been continually doing better about not letting one occasion mess me up, but once in a while it will. When I do Ďmess upí in the form of a binge, it continues for at least a day or two (or 3) and then I feel immense shame and then try to Ďbuckle downí and overwork my body and eat nothing but veggies and fruit and wholesome foods. It doesnít sound bad - but when itís severely restricted and I am very active, it is. I get burnt out and then repeat the cycle. Every time I go around this, I gain more insight and get a better grip. Iím hovering in the 170s and this problem has been here my lifetime so I suppose it will take a lifetime of learning to work around. Working on being kind to myself and accepting Godís grace. Staying disciplined and resilient.

I have a busy day ahead. We are opening our home for an 8-week lifegroup in our church and we are providing tacos every Tuesday. I hope to establish a good group of friends, as we go to a large church and it can be hard to get to know people.

Good morning/afternoon to all!
WI down a tick to 155.4 but still up 1lb from pre-vacation and offical WI is tomorrow.
W/O went well I did not get my strength training in that I normally do (today was supose to be ab work) I did some but the machines I typically use were in use by others so I just randomly picked a machine here and there.
WW points yesterday....34 yikes....it was a hungry hippo day I guess LOL. Today if all goes as planned will be 11-15 (daily should not exceed 23 + I have activity points) BUT since I did not log my eating from vacation not sure where I will be at.

Jules welcome back
Rachel that is good news about your uncle
granny, even with the 'trials' of outdoor fun I am not sure I am coordinated enough to try a shepee LOL
Jen great job on the drop, and I am sure your son will sort things out.
zallie, I hate having to make peace with the fact I just can not eat the calories I want and lose or even maintain, can you hear the large sigh in my voice........
ciecie and diana

Default Hi

JulesMarion- I totally get where you are coming from. I have spent most of my life in that pattern.Very good, then not so good then oh heck who cares I may as well keep eating, then back to the buckling down. I think you are on the right track to be kind to yourself and forgiving. Something I am working on too. We all deserve to eat healthy good tasting food. Having weekly goals of calories also helps me recover after a bad day. Pulling for you! I see how far you have come. You can do this!

Rachel, Jen, Diana, Ciecie, Terri, Nancylmrn and Grannynancy- thanks for your support. You are helping me to shut up the moaning. I have to learn to play my own game of learning to feed my body less. And enjoy what I can do.

Like today I was almost able to walk without a limp. I could actually walk with a little pace.

And another blessing today was playing in this jazz band. So enthralling to hear the music all around me and just be part of a group making music together.

Must get to bed, so personals another time.

Jen, thanks for asking about what my uncle is struggling with. We're not quite sure why he has weakened so much over the past year; he refuses to see doctor (specialists). But in that weakness he had fallen and had slight fracture (crack) to pelvis. This is what has caused him to be bedridden; hence, the full-time care. He is 81 years old. Bless you for asking & caring.

I took in 1520 calories yesterday. Met my other goals.

Today's goals: 1200 calories, 2 liters water, veggies, fiber.
