Ridiculous thought warning: I "only" lost 8 lbs so didn't win 😭

On the other hand I did it right this time. No gimmicks no quick fixes. Just watching my carbs and my calories. I may take a break for a month to really focus on getting my mental game back on solid ground. I haven't decided yet 😊

Back from amazing trip to Jamaica! Afraid to step on scale. Happy the food was good food. Not junk... except the sweet drinks! I don’t regret any of my food choices and have come home guilt free. Feeling guilt free has taken a couple of decades to overcome.
And continue to move forward!
All the best to you all amazing people. I’ve enjoyed your posts!

That's amazing! Life is for living and it sounds like you made conscious choices and enjoyed delicious food that may not be normally available at home (Jamaican cooking :)) No point in fearing the scale. You may have done more exercise than normal and have a pleasant surprise waiting.

Ellen K.

Feeling Guilt free is what I'm looking forward to. Congratulations on not going crazy food wise while on vacation.

  • The scale may not be moving much these days, but I made a huge accomplishment today! I ran a mile. I ran a whole fricken MILE, without stopping!! I really like this because there is no guessing game about losing/gaining fat vs muscle vs water weight. I did this. I put in the time and discipline in the gym and the kitchen. I increased my endurance. And I RAN A WHOLE MILE!

    I always forget to take pictures at the gym, so I came home and took this one. Today was upper body (weights) so I was excited about those gains too :)

    Maybe now the scale will move tmrw haha.

    See my longer and slightly different post on IG :)

Had a mini-whoosh overnight so I'm only 2 lbs away from goal and a few days to get there. Food is going great. It's amazing how much I don't need all that stuff I was eating and a great reminder to me to ration it out more. I did make a chocolate cream cheese fudge last night. It has some chocolate in it, melted and mixed, but is mainly cream cheese and butter, so I think that's a good compromise for me :) It's super rich, so I can't eat too much at one time, which is also great for me as I'm a graze-er LOL

Good morning everyone! This post is for the ladies in our group, but guys, please read and share with the ladies in your life.

In 2001, at the age of 37 and a year after the birth of my 2nd son, I started experiencing non-stop periods. I went to my OB/GYN and he said, oh it's just because you're perimenopausal, it's hormonal changes and will stop. After almost 4 weeks of constant bleeding, I had this feeling in my gut that "something is not right" and I went back to my OB/GYN. After pretty much demanding that something was not right, he did a vaginal ultrasound and found a 3 inch tumor in my uterus! Needless to say, the following week I had surgery to remove the tumor and underwent a few rounds of chemo to be on the safe side. Since then, I've had abnormal pap smears several times which I then have to go in for a colposcopy and biopsies (NOT fun!!). Well, last month I went for my regular annual checkup and of course it came back abnormal, so today I had a colposcopy and 4 biopsies were taken. So, now I wait once again and pray the results are negative for cervical cancer.

Ladies, I can't stress to you enough the importance of having your annual exam. If there is the slightest history of cervical, or uterine or any type of female cancer in your family, make sure to tell you OB/GYN, and insist they do a pap every year. If you have irregular periods, or feel anything just isn't right with your lady parts (periods, pain, discharge, smell, painful intercourse, etc.) make sure you discuss it with your doctor. Be your own advocate, and never be afraid or embarrassed to discuss it with your doctor. That is why they chose their profession, to help you.

OK, I'm stepping down from my soapbox now. I hope everyone is having a fantabulous day!

I appreciate you telling your story, Ellen and I hope your tests come back negative. Thanks for posting this because I'm taking it as a gentle prod that I need to take care of myself. I haven't had a PAP or Mammogram in 8 years. I just forget about it because I'm not experiencing any problems. Silly thing to say when I know better. I'll call tomorrow and make an appointment .

Carole D.

Prayers for you and for good rest results!

  • Wednesday accountability post! Well yesterday was weird for multiple reasons, but also amazing for multiple reasons! Ya’ll, I hit my “ultimate” weight goal of a normal BMI and 220lbs lost!! Woohoo! I know it’s silly, but I just wanted to know even for ONE day that I wasn’t labeled “overweight”. That means I’m officially calling it the end of my weight loss journey and the beginning of my maintenance journey, which I’ve heard is way harder. 😅 Didn’t meet my step goal because I worked from home, but I did go bouldering and had a really good climbing session!

  • Well it’s official, I’m going a bit nuts not being able to even have the option of being on Instagram. Grrrr it’s been down for me all day and I was one of the ones stupid enough to try the log out and redownload solution and now I can’t even log back in! Anyway, I have basically no steps for today because I worked from home on my couch. I have bouldering class tonight, so I’ll hopefully be able to make up some ground but I doubt all. How is your last week going??

It is all Facebook family of apps, but ig is mostly back up. I was able to put a post up just now :blush::sunglasses: I don't think I'm very good at any social media, but I do it for myself, not others, so there I go. If others find it useful or whatever, that's great.

I can survive without Instagram, but I use Facebook as 90% of my job. Yesterday was ROUGH. I gave up around 3 o'clock and watched Criminal Minds for 3 hours. Oops.
