  • This is the first weigh in that I have done in months. Mostly because even though I am a paying member, I could not input a weigh in if any kind unless I was involved in a game.

    I have had many health challenges since October. All directly/indirectly related to my cancer. As a result this is where I am today trying very hard to maintain my weight and put some back on, which is extremely difficult as my body doesn’t require the 2500 to 3000 calories a day that they want me consuming. I struggle very much to come close to 2000 calories as I am not getting as much movement in a needed to support that with the anemia as low as it is. My hemoglobin has started to improve some and we are getting some answers. I may very likely need to get an iron infusion to get it back up there due to my body just not absorbing the 2 tablets a day that I am taking.

    It is worth noting that I was 206 when the cancer was discovered. One of my cancer spots pinches off the main bile duct coming out of the liver right at the “Y” where the right lobe and left lobe ducts come together. This has now 3 times completely closed off nand I now have drain lines inserted through my skin that make the drain path from the bile ducts to my small intestine. Each time one of these blockages has occurred it has resulted in worsened anemia and weight loss due to lack of movement because of the anemia being so bad.

    Cancer really does suck! But my God is way bigger and with his help I will get through this and live long enough to see my Great Grandchildren. Which is a very lofty goal given my sons don’t even have girlfriends and only God knows when we will meet our first Grandchild.c

Are you seeing a dietitian? They have good tricks for cramming a lot of calories into small portions!

I’ve been fluctuating up and down a couple pounds for a few months now but staying in the same range. I’ve slowly added a few things back into my meal plan to see what I can tolerate and not gain. The big test will be how I handle the winter/holidays when I usually gain weight.

I’m on a cruise this week and I’m scared to see what the scale will say on Monday.

I may be a dietbet addict. I joined this game right away after I weighed out for my last one. I was a little higher weight than I wanted to be, but not high enough to where I thought I could lose another 4%. I had joined as many kickstarters as I could after vacation with 10 days left of my last maintainer. Now this morning, my weight is up, I had a late night at work and ate more than I should, and have my grandson this weekend and will probably eat take out or go out to eat at least once. I’m kind of wishing I’d just waited until after the weekend and joined the Flex Kickstarter a couple of days late. However, I still have room for 1 more member game, as I’m now in 2. Do you think I have a problem?

I do the same :joy: even though I lose weight so slowly that 4% is out of the realm of possibility. I hope this one allows me to slow down a bit and focus more on the steady habits. I think we are addicted to Hope and that’s okay

Sara B.

Focus on this and build healthy habits. You are exactly right Stephanie! Get yourself back to a good place with food and exercise and re-evaluate for a few more this spring! Chronic dieting is harmful too! This will be a good "diet break" for all of us. Good luck and stay positive everyone!

Vacations and weddings are great though. At least everyone else can have a few extra dollars from us! It's a good cause!

Jaylies mom

Same! I took a very spur of the moment vacation and didn’t make it :weary::weary: oh well I didn’t really gain either so that’s a win! On to the next one!

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Aug 16 to submit your final weight. If you're a winner, you'll be asked to submit photos and will get a new weigh-in word when you visit the weigh-in screens.

Submit early to make sure your photos are accepted, and remember - don't eat that cupcake until you get an email that your photos are approved! (If you don't get one, check your spam folder.) You must have an approved weigh-in in order to be declared a winner.

The game will finalize 24-36 hours after all weigh-ins have been submitted. Good luck!

Im also wondering... if we submit a progress weigh in today, will it automatically count for weigh in. Usually they don't let you do it early. As far as I know, any time on August 15 or 16 is ok!

Michaela

To answer some questions - you can weigh in anytime during the final weigh in period (Aug 15-16). Approved progress weigh ins for members can be used in other games for up to 48 hours. They are not automatically submitted for games, but when you click weigh in, you will be given the option to reuse a recent weigh in or submit a new one.
