I am participating 1 Transformer and 3 Kickstarters.  I started my exercise routine back up slowly a week or two before I started dietbet again and went light as per the recommendation of one of my Doctors.  

I have been exercising every day in varying amounts and varying workouts and walking since I joined DietBet again.  I take the time to read new messages when I can.  I try to be as active as I can in the Dietbet community because I find it very supportive and amazing for keeping me focused on becoming healthier.  

However, I am also taking a Health Coach Certification course right now, so between balancing workouts and homework, I am having less time to be active here as I was last year when I was using Dietbet.  I am finding though that having to really be focused on my time management has actually pushed me to be even more organized.  With eating every 2-3 hours, doing 1-2 workouts a day plus walking for 1-1.5 hours in the evenings on top of doing my readings and assignments for class; I am not wasting time and procrastinating like I did when I was in grad school.  I had health issues and could not manage my time then at all and even had to quit grad school. 

Now though, I am finding time and making myself do my homework and do my workouts and I feel really good about it all at the end of the day when I go to bed.  I feel organized and like I have control over my life and like I am finally making things happen in a way that I haven't felt since I was first an undergrad.

I am logging my food and sticking to calorie deficit goals due to needing to lose X amount of weight in X amount of time right now.  I eat every time I feel hungry and get pletny of nutrients.  My weight loss has been slower this time around, but I understand that it is okay.  I know the reasons it is happening for me right now.  I check my weight informally every day without clothes when I wake up after relieving my bladder.  I do weekly photo verified weigh-ins with clothes on Sundays after I take a shower.  I have been wearing the same outfit this time around (washed every week between pics) just to help alleviate difference in weight of clothes.  I think some of my issues may be resolving by the end of this week.  I am really looking forward to my weigh-in this Sunday to see if I am actually going to be within reasonable difference from my goals that are coming up soon.

My only wish is that I could be more actively reading everyones stories and journeys and interacting more here.  I hope everyone is doing well and reaches your goal.  I don't know if I will reach mine, but I know I am building healthier habits and who knew I could actually manage time too?  I am hoping my workouts and food choices decide to show up for me this Sunday on the scale!
