First I wanted to get out of the Covid-19 riskzone. Then I gave me a goal to do horse riding again after many years. But in fact it is just natural to be in good shape. So: back to nature!

  • Anyone’s spouse suck at taking photos?! My husband hates doing it and gives me like one try. It’s hard to make him do it weekly these are two weeks apart. I need a full length mirror. LOL

I set my phone up on my counter and film myself on the scale, then screenshot the video. Works well!

My husband hates it too! I’ve enlisted my 6-year-old. :laughing: I like the tripod idea, though!

  • It’s been kind of a bad go of things. Missed weigh in because of ex boyfriend. Had some sad feelings because of said ex boyfriend and missing out on a job opportunity. Saw my counselor and my doctor this week trying to cope through this depression I didn’t know I was in the middle of until I was in crisis. So it’s been kind of rough recently.

    Needless to say, I’m back where I started. And that is ok. I met with my trainer yesterday and we are working on setting a work out schedule that fit with my weight loss and fitness goals. Today was the first work out that is going along those lines, and Brady never disappoints, I can barely lift my arms to hold my phone to type this out. In hopefully 2 weeks I’ll meet with my dietitian/nutrition specialist and we are going to work on a nutrition plan that fits with my weight loss, fitness goals, and mental health goals.

    When I started all of this I kept telling myself it was because I wanted to take care of my self and I wanted to be better. Where as that was partially true it was mainly because my boyfriend was telling me “he liked me on the inside, but I needed to match on the outside” because he just wasn’t attracted to me.

    With him gone I can really focus on doing what is best for me, and reaching my health goals because I’m worth it, fat rolls or not. I signed up for another 4 months with my trainer, my doctor is on board with my new more direct goals, and my trainer is ready to fucking kick my ass.

    I got this, right? Screw you world, I’m not going to let my weight be something I use as an excuse anymore. I’m beautiful, I’m focused, and it’s gonna be alright.

oh yes, you ARE beautiful and I think, it's a great opportunity for you to work towards your personal goals without this man. Now you are free.
He didn't deserve you. And you deserve someone who is worth being loved by you. The right one is somewhere outside, waiting just for you.
In terms of your goals: of course, you got this, girl!!! :thumbsup:

  • Thank you Ilana and everyone here for your support and guidance. I’m 1 pound below my pre-Covid weight and 5 away from my goal weight!!! I didn’t think I could do it this time due to lots of family stuff happening, but you gave me the support and the motivation I needed. THANK YOU! We got this. Keep going everyone.

What are y’all doing for the next couple days?? This is gonna be reeeally close for me.. but it’s not impossible. I’m breastfeeding so I’m not willing to cut calories. I regularly drink between 1-2 gallons of h2o a day (I’m a Pisces.) I go on walks with my baby a lot, but I’m not sure if an energetic workout like LGU or the F&F sample would help against stagnation OR would it push the scale in the wrong direction for water retention?? Where are the experts lol I know there are some smart folks in this group!!

These are really smart!! I’m gonna watch my sodium … I have low blood pressure so usually I have tons of salt but I think for 2 days I should have an avg amount and not overdo it…. Definitely could increase my water tho.. I’ve been slacking … and that’s smart to know about conditioning the body!!

Karin V.

Concentrate on vegetables, renounce on fruits and sugar and try to cancel dinner. No workout, as Hazel Rain wrote. Workouts in the last days can be counterproductive. (otherwise, of course, it's good to workout)
Go to bed early and sleep well. This should be enough to win.
Good luck !

  • Just joined Ilana's next DietBet. Love this group and all the motivation. It would be great to meet many of you in there.
    This was my lunch today. Big salad with goat's cheese and a corncob. As dessert a nice Latte Macchiato with oatmilk and one Cookie.
