Does anyone else get into these depressing bummy times. I and in a hole since last weigh in and just haven’t been working out or eating right. I keep fighting to get up and be active but my head is just not there... I need to get out of this funk.

Look back on your progress pics. Go put on something that you wore before you lost weight, and see how big it is on you now. Think about the battles you have already won over bad decisions and the steps you have already logged. You have a lot in your tool box to get you back where you need to go, so celebrate those successes and hopefully it will be time to make more!

I haven't lost a lb this month, it's not good for my psyche right now. I'm getting very frustrated. Even broke my "no sugar" today and i had gone 3 months! :disappointed:

I need to say that I will drink at least 100 oz of water today. For accountability. Enough slacking in the water department!!

Who else is with me??

I have found that I drink more if I have water everywhere. If a cup is out, I'm more likely to chug at the sink. If a bottle is on my work desk, I'll sip throughout the day. Have water everywhere!

I got 106 lol

We got our first Pfizer shot this afternoon. My arm has been sore since then but tolerable. I'm only a little tired but yesterday and today my diet has been sh-t so it could be from that. How long after your vaccine did you get side effects if any? I'm wondering if I can hike Monday or should I take it easy?

I've only got the first Pfizer shot so far, but all I had was soreness near the injection site the day after. It was mostly gone the day after that.

Amanda F.

I was personally fine after both but the 2nd Pfizer caused a lymph node inflammation at my collar bone so it was uncomfortable to do much but walk for 2-3 days

  • Have you thought about your "reward"?

    Will it be a non-food reward?

    If so, what will it be?

I always dream and make plans, but don't actually get/do the reward. I think I like looking forward to things more than spending the $/energy on actualization them. :p

I have played many games here, won some and lost some. I have never cashed out yet! Lol :laughing: (I'm a dream client! Lol) this bet ends at my 40th birthday! However I have another bet going that ends in Sept! So, maybe I'll know in September! Lol :laughing:

I feel every month I fall into period talk, I apologize! Lol but ...

Ladies, what do you do to prepare yourself for that time of the month? Do you try to eat less/more of something, workout less/more? What do you do to try to prepare mentally or physically?

Yes! This is what I was trying to communicate last week when I realized that my crazy cravings were hormonal. They just usually aren't that bad. But things are starting to get wonky. (I'm 48) I'm totally interested in people's ideas. Thanks for asking these questions.

Mel

Just wanted to say- period talk is A Ok! It is SUCH a factor in folks who have ovaries/uterus’ weight loss journey. I gained all of my weight due to hormones technically.

Very sad day today. My FIL, who lives many states away, peacefully passed. He was a month shy of his 93rd birthday. I am grateful that my husband was able to spend time with his dad and mom just a couple of weeks ago.

As I was reading through posts tonight, I laughed over someone saying that they had thrown out week old pizza and how that was a first for them. It is a real victory when we get to the point that we realize the cost of throwing out unhealthy food is far less than the cost of prescription drugs and medical care for ‘lifestyle diseases’ like hypertension and Type 2 diabetes. I really need to scrutinize every single item in my shopping cart and ask does this help me or hurt me?

I have been in a bit of a slump lately and have only lost a pound since our April 1 weigh-in. I had a very stern talk with myself and know that I need to take this journey more seriously than I currently am. Every day that I don’t commit 110% is a day I will never get back — there are no “do overs”. I don’t expect perfection from myself but that doesn’t mean I can’t strive for it.

Sorry for the rambling... so much buzzing around in my brain tonight.

So sorry for your loss, Susie. (My phone just tried to autocorrect your name to sunshine - what a lovely pet name that could be!) Remember to show yourself kindness during this time. Rooting for you!

Jessica MM

You have my condolences, Susie.

I like your wording of needing to scrutinize your grocery cart items and asking yourself if it helps or hurts. That’s going to stick with me.

Take care :pray:

Tell me a word that you absolutely loathe. Something that makes you cringe every time you hear it or roll your eyes because it’s too alliterative or over used, could be for any reason.

My way way younger siblings say “honestly” way to much! About 5 times in a convo.......so are they usually lieing to me? I don’t get? The definition of what I’m saying is honest so why do I have to make it clear I’m being honest?

Leila C

Cindy, it’s the “like” of my generation “like, gag me with a spoon”.
My son says “literally” all the time, when he’s not being literal. Something he picked up from a YouTuber.
Sigh.....
