Question- To save or donate clothes that get to big?
Trying to decide if I should purge my closet and donate clothes that are too big. I have quite a few size 14 jeans that I was wearing at Christmas but now I’m in a size 12… may be a size 10 soon.

Allow yourself one box of ‘not now’ clothes. They can either not fit, be a wild style, etc.

With it being only 1 size difference, I would probably hold on to a few favourites in case of bloating or vacation weight and such. Just in case! But I'd also feel comfortable getting rid of most as incentive to keep going. :yellow_heart:

  • Ugh! I'm only 2 days into my 4-week clean eating challenge and I already find myself wondering how my son's Betta fish would taste dunked in soy sauce.

    I called it "Fabulous February" but "Famished" may have been the better word.

    (I know I will be ok ... Sugar/diary/alcohol detox is always hard for me for the first few days ... and I've already dropped almost 3 pounds, so at least I can see the results)

    Photo of my favorite mug: I have herbal tea when I need a pick-me-up now, rather than wine or candy.

This made me laugh so hard this morning, so thank you for that. I gave up soda 9 days ago and can feel your pain...although not doing as much of a detox as you. The first few days are the worst! Hang in there. Your results are worth it!

Haha! Another thing I found helpful to avoid snacking is making a ginger and turmeric “tea” to sip on all day. Just boil water and let chopped ginger, turmeric powder, and cayenne (optional) simmer for a bit to infuse, and then add lemon juice to your mug. It’s definitely replaced my almost nightly glass of wine.

Does anyone use either Noom or the Weight Watchers app? Nutrition is definitely where I struggle and I'm looking for a little extra help with it. I'd love to hear if anyone has any experience with these or suggestions for other apps.

It really depends on what your struggle is with nutrition. If you don't have a good sense of calories and what to eat, then something like My Fitness Pal can help. If you don't want to track calories then WW or Noom could be good options. If you're looking for social interaction and support, then WW. If you want to dig into the psychology of eating, then Noom. As others mentioned, I don't think the Noom coaches are any good but the material is useful.

One if the best sources of information for me has been the Half Size Me podcast. That woman is a brilliant coach and much of what she talks about can be transferred to all aspects of life (e.g. her messages around setting boundaries).

Chad A.

I am doing WW. Tracking makes me think, and make decisions. Sure you can count calories, but that is kind of complicated to me. You start to memorize and internalize point values, and then it gets very easy. 17lbs down in a few months. 190lbs. It works for me.

I just found out I have to travel from 4/29 to 5/3 and I cannot miss round 5 weigh in. Do I pack my scale in my suitcase???

Buy a membership. Then submit a progress weighin on 4/29 before you leave. Reuse that weighin on 5/1. (assuming your weight on 4/29 was at or below the goal for the round)

Biking Syl

You can only reuse a weigh in for 48 hours.
But some people have weighed in in the aisle at Walmart. :)

I am over on StepBet and signed up at 9:30pm. Once I did I realized I have to get 7000+ steps before midnight! It is cold, wet, and dark outside; and all the gyms are closed because of Covid restrictions.

I took my self and walked the hallways of the building. I am sure my neighbours thought I finally lost it.

Jokes on them! I got my 7500 steps in! Feeling great and motivated.

I have walked many a hotel hallways and stairs for stepbet steps! I do sometimes get some strange looks, but if anyone asks I always let them know about my step challenge!

I’ve never tried a step bet….maybe I should. Spuds really motivating

I can,
I will,
Watch me!

Rode my NordicTrak bike today and this was repeated so many times. I can do hard workouts/things, I will accomplish my goals/survive bad days. All the negative naysayers watch me prove you wrong (naysayers including my own mind that has constant negative things to say.

We got this!

I decided that I would share what I have been unwilling to admit or confront for the past 5 years. In 2016, after a year of marriage, my husband told me he wasn't attracted to me anymore and left me. Prior to this, I was extremely disciplined. All of my life. I worked out 6 days a week and adhered to a macro creed of 45% protein, 35% carbs and 20% fat. I maintained a BMI of 18 - 22%. My ex-husband left me when my job was particularly tough and emotional (I worked on criminal appeals for life in prison inmates) and I started losing hair. Me losing some hair was disgusting to him. The day he left me, I opened a beer. Many of them. I took a shot of tequila. Several of them. I never worked out again and my diet changed drastically. My drinking on the weekends became drinking during the week. My drinking during the week at night became drinking during the day. I was a miserable mess, spiraling out of control, thinking that no matter what I brought to the table emotionally or intellectually, if my looks weren't perfect, no one would want me. I gained weight rapidly and had an odd sense of satisfaction. No one was noticing me anymore. I felt invisible and it felt GOOD, When my XXL clothes started to be tight, I decided I needed to change a few things to just to maintain where I was. I cleaned up my diet and started walking. But I didn't give up the drinking. I would weigh in and the needle either went up or stayed the same, and I pretended it was old age because I couldn't face the fact that the alcohol was to blame. I was the epitome of a "functioning alcoholic." I gave up booze on 12/25/2021. I decided to join dietbet in an effort to hold myself accountable for my decisions and actions. Thank You for listening!

Do you participate in the challenge rides? The Italy one is kicking both my husband and my butts.

I so much would rather be outside on my bike, but the recumbent inside needs some attention, and I think it's calling my name....

Aww... so adorable. My little on is 18 months (30lbs) and I did weighted (her hugged against my torso) sumo squats while she enjoyed the up and down motion it created.
