My healthful attitude is off and on again. Last night I succumbed to 2 pieces of candy, and almost thought, the heck with it, I might as well eat as much as I want since I've already blown it. Tired of counting, too, and am wondering how long it will be till healthy eating is a habit and not a chore. Seems every day I come up with a new strategy.

Tessa, how and where is the wire for your wrist attached? When I broke my right wrist (dominant hand, shifting hand) I was casted. I had an exercise buddy so I kept going to the gym with her. When I finally got my cast off, my right forearm was pale, ugly, and puny (The cast went up to my elbow.) I broke it at night sliding off the steps, and drove my stick shift car myself to the clinic cuz it didn't look weird.

Heather, re: the driving license in Great Britain - did they think people would stall out in a traffic circle not knowing how to down-shift or something?

I gave in yesterday so sick of winter and my schedule is upside down and all around . I was being good had soup for lunch but then made dip and had chips and the dip Oh soo good then ate a little debbie swiss cake ..It was good too .
I really had to stop myself with dip not really suppose to have it because of ULC but I thought what the heck tired of not able to eat stuff that I shouldn't .

I just wish the warm weather would get here soon it is so depressing

Tessa best wishes for healing of your wrist .

Glad your wrist feels okay....
Besides the wire....is your wrist in some sort of cast? Or support?

I am frustrated too here.....my weight is up 4 pounds this morning BUT I know exactly why! I am into too many card foods like bread.....even if I stick to my 1200 calorie WOE ....those carbs always add weight on me!
I find I am getting tired of always having to watch what I am eating! NOT a good sign for sure! Even found myself thinking of smoking again lately!
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN .........but just saying how frustrated & tired I am trying to keep off this weight and trying to lose the last 20 lbs!

Down 0.6 today after 3 lb loss last week ó so happy I havenít sabotaged myself yet.

Heather, I believe you can do this! I copied your spaghetti squash recipe from FB since I have one sitting here, just need to pick up the ricotta today. Thank you. emoticon

I survived our buffet last night. I ate a small sirloin, mashed potatoes and some corn. BUT, I ate dessert too so I was far from perfect.

Tessa - I hope the wire works as it is a simpler procedure that having to have surgery to plate it. My heart goes out to you as I know as active as you are, that this slows you down.

It is an all day rain here today so Norm and I are taking off to go see the movie, Dr Doolittle. I have to avoid the popcorn!

I'm going to have a wire put in my wrist to stabilise the fracture, a short procedure if it works.. otherwise they'll plate it.
A boring wait at the hospital but at least I'm not allowed to eat! However I don't recommend this approach to dieting!!!!!
Hope everyone else's day is more fun!

Don't think so Brenda....I am never bored in winter....between line dancing/ swimming & shoveling & clearing snow...
Plus I have about 20 Words with Friends games on the go....& a scrabble game....that keeps me busy....
Plus I read....I cook new recipes ( new ones always take me more time (..... emoticon )
I clean house....I do the washing / drying/ & folding
My house phone seems to be attached to my ear with people calling like my sister....
Add Sparks to that and I have run out of time emoticon emoticon

The minute I sit down...it is like an * eat signal *

If I could just be sensible when that happens BUT I crave for carbs and high calorie proteins like cheeses....
Once my carbs get into me...they go right to my fat cells and fill them up!

Not giving up....here....just need to push myself harder....
emoticon Brenda.......lol....I needed this little rant!

I'm hanging in still but still eating too much! I understand what you're saying Heather.

Tonight is Dinner Night out here at our park. We have about 15 couples going and the restaurant of choice is The Butter Churn which is a buffet. So I'm eating a meal replacement bar for breakfast and a salad for lunch. I want to save most of my calories for dinner.

Tessa - hoping you are not going to have to go through surgery. Yes, most cars here are Automatics but our Kia Soule is a 5 speed on the floor. We need a manual to pull behind our MH. Not a problem for me as I have been driving them all my life.

Tessa..yes most cars here are automatic....But standard cars here have the gears on the right...
I take it you broke your left wrist?
I love driving a standard car and had several of them here over the years.
I was excited when going to Scotland that I would be driving a standard....UNTIL.. I found out that I had to take a full UK driving test to drive a standard. emoticon
So we had to search down an automatic ( not easy to find over there either LOL ) because I could automatically just switch my New Brunswick Canada license for a UK license as long as it was automatic gears ( no test needed )

Thank you for your good wishes
I've now got a temporary cast on which I think is a good thing! Wondering how many pounds it weighs (along with all the swelling)!
I'm now logged in at our local hospital (another 2 hrs of sitting around & xrays), they'll call tomorrow if i need surgery I think.
Life is going to be different! Doubting I'll be able to drive as I need that hand to change gear-is America mostly automatic?
I think I'll be doing a lot of walking

Sorry to hear you fractured your wrist. When I broke my finger and was casted, I drove and it was my dominant hand casted. I did ok but needed to watch for the idiots out there on their phone instead of trying to drive right. I did not drive if I took the pain meds though. I hope you heal fast.

Oh Tessa - I am so sorry for your broken wrist. I broke my right wrist back when I was working. After they cast it, the pain left but it was difficult to work on the computer which was 90% of my job. I hope yours heals quickly and doesn't prove to be too much of a problem for you. emoticon

The skating was mostly good. I got back into a slow forward movement. Unfortunately someone went into the back of me while I was standing still in the beginner area, I put my hand out to break my fall (foolish) and I've broken my wrist.
This complicates the next few weeks as I won't be able to drive and need to for work..
Luckily it's my left and I'm right handed!

Down 1.7 lbs this week and I hope that keeps up. Really having quite a bit of pain in my knees though. Can not sit more than 15 minutes and then BAM ! Pain !! Am trying the PT exercises that they give to our arthroplasty patients. Hopefully that will help.

Up a pound, but it could've been more. I was able to hit the brakes.

Sharon, it's so hard to 'count' when the food you buy/eat isn't marked for calories or carbs. Like small-bakery goods which don't usually have one of those stickers. On SP, sometimes I can't find the facts and figures on stuff I buy or eat; then what? I try to estimate, but....

It's icy cold and windy today. DH says the wind has really compacted the snow and he won't be able to hit it with the snowblower. Probably make a good snow fort!

Time to go.

My weight is down .6 lbs from last week. But it's just a scale flucuation as I'm pretty sure I didn't lose.

Funny story - well, I'm actually crying! We picked up some muffins from The Bakery @WM. I had a banana nut muffin with a little I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. When I recorded it in my WW app, the muffin was 14 pts and the butter 3 pts. That is 17 pts for breakfast and I'm only allowed 23 pts a day!!! I think it's fair to say, I'll be going over my pts today!

Tessa have fun skating be careful it does sound like fun I haven't been for years I probly would break a bone if I go now .

The first time Mike went roller skating with me way back 44 years ago he broke his arm & now just the mention of skating he gives me the look!! LOL
I did get roller blades a few years ago and went to the park and skated it was fun & I knew I had grass to roll into if I couldn't stop I did enjoy it though

I am up today but I know why I over ate yesterday . no excuse just did.

Have a good day everyone

Pleased that weíre all still working on our eating and health! I was afraid to weigh myself this morning after 3 days away from home, especially after Mexican food Wednesday night.
Surprisingly, Iím still 2 lbs down, which gives me hope that I can compensate for restaurant meals with healthy meals most of the time.

Brenda, I donít know about Arbyís fish sandwich, but I love a local restaurant breaded fish dinner and rarely indulge. Guilty pleasure. emoticon

So far (after breakfast) I am right on track. I hope it continues. I'm trying!

Heather - I'm rooting for you for tomorrow's WI.

Brenda - I'm not a fish eater so that doesn't tempt me! However, Norm loves McDonald's fishwich and he gets a hankering for that once in awhile. I always get the Southwestern Grilled Chicken Salad so I'm happy when he gets a hankering.

LG - keeping busy is a piece to the puzzle for sure!

Will I am in trouble LOL Arbys brought back there fish sandwich I tried for 2 days not to give in to getting one for supper . I caved last night Mike had gone to Golden Corral with his brother for a late lunch and he was not hungry so I ask if he would take me to get a fish for supper while we were waiting for my order he said he wanted to go across the street after I get mine he wanted a McDonalds sundae . I had half of my sandwich gone by time he got his desert . the fish was sooo good but loaded with calories .

I hope that hold me off for a while going back ...

Marianne - nice loss! I can see you are really working at it. I sure hope your nice Mexican meal didn't hurt too much. Restaurant meals are my nemisis!

I am trying to get back on track. My breakfast and lunch go OK but I seem to overeat at my last meal. I have to say on WW's, they cut back your carbs but have you eating low fat also. No carbs or fat doesn't keep me full. It may be my body is accustomed to LC/HF but for whatever reason, I don't enjoy feeling hunger. I get very Hangry!

TC....off to bed for sure emoticon You need to stay well rested to stay healthy GF

Carol? Dialysis? Really? It was just ME emoticon Needing my head examined!

Tessa....I think the best way to fight our addictions is to just NOT have them in our cupboards or fridges...After 2 years of removing peanut butter from my house.....I no longer crave for it.

Sharon....I know exactly how you were feeling seeing those scales up! There were weeks in our last challenge that I thought I had behaved so well.....did extra exercise etc....THAT the scales would show me down! WRONG! All they did was remain the same or go down 0.2....grrrrr

Heather, I thought you were off and on dialysis or something. Sheesh. Scared me.

Tessa, I don't know how big or rich your hospital is. Mine instituted valet parking as our parking was so horrible. Made a huge difference for people of compromised mobility. Shoot - sometimes it can be hard to find the right trainer. Best of luck in the search.

Pat, I can imagine the big bag of M&Ms. My brother sent a dozen huge bags of candy coated popcorn that's been hard to limit.

I think I'm getting back on the right path. I played with one of the functions on SP this a.m. and if I could manage to lose 1 lb a week, I'd be at my goal by my 50 year HS reunion. If only... I also did a couple of Silver Sneakers videos equalling 30 minutes this morning. I'd rather sweat in the house than go to the gym when it's 10 below zero.

Sharon, doesn't Mexican food have a lot of salt in it? Can you feel if the gain was water retention?

Brenda, thanks for the fun visuals; I need all the inspiration I can get as I have trouble imagining myself at goal weight.

I'm struggling with my cheese addiction this week. I wont be buying anymore when I've finished what's in the fridge, for a couple of weeks at least.
And my personal trainer has stopped working so I need to find someone else which is a pity since we got on well.
Busy week-appointments for my mother which can be a bit tricky (finding parking spaces at the hospital particularly).

I tried really hard yesterday and thought I did really well. We did go out for lunch but I had the soup (chicken enchilada) and salad. This morning I stepped on the scale thinking at least it won't be up! WRONG! It was up .2 from yesterday! I am going to throw the darn thing away! That is d a r n scale!

Today is our Ladies Tea. At least it's not a full meal, just tea sandwiches and fruit and veggies. I shouldn't have a problem.

Pat..... emoticon for your *funk* ....Just don't do like me and keep going for a week!

Brenda....I just love those visuals you keep finding for us! emoticon

Sharon.....Alex let go of his * no sugar* streak at Christmas. When I was on my week long binge.....he joined me and gained 7 pounds....
Since I went back on my WOE.....he went back to his....he lost 4 lbs last Sat. at weigh in.
However....because they are right when they say sugar is like any other ( sorry...meant to add addiction here )he is now struggling about no sugar. But he is at least looking at low calorie chocolate syrup for his yogurts.
I feel bad for him....craving his sugars again emoticon

TC....for some reason over the last 3 days.....I have this * stitch * on my left hip and side. Only there certain ways I move.....doe not hurt to put pressure on it.....does not hurt when I am outside doing snow clearing....
Seems to *catch* me when I go to stand up from sitting or when I bend my hip walking up the stairs! Have been putting on an analgesic rub with good results.
Hope your back gets better soon.... emoticon

Got into a funk the other day and ate a ďshareĒ size pkg of peanut M&Ms! Not happy with myself! So I got busy and cleaned out a closet! Take that!

Iíve got to get my head into this game!

Sharon, you can do this! Itís terribly hard but you know how to do it.

TC, until I got both knees replaced I too had awful pain in my hips and knees. Hope you can get some relief.

TC - I am also suffering from the inflamation in my body. At least on Keto, I don't have to deal with it because it takes the inflamation away. Perhaps as you get back on track, your knees and back will hopefully improve.

Heather - I have avoided the scale for fear of what it would say. This morning I made myself weigh in and I am up 10 lbs since our challenge!! I'm not surprised. I weighed in because I am mad at myself and decided today it has to stop. So, hopefully, I will get back on track. When you were on your binge, how did Alex do? Is he still eating Sugar Free? Bless his heart if he is.

Marianne - you seem to be back on track! Is it the BL Challenge that got you back on track?

So, 2020 isn't going so good so far! Time to turn things around!

Good morning ladies !

Weight going down again slowly, of course. Head slowly getting right most days. I have stayed on my plan past 3 days eating and will get exercise going soon. Cooked ham so part of slow loss may be my salt but it is all good.

Every morning is: Today is a great day for a GREAT day !! I think it is helping. Work still sux but has been do-able past few days.

My knees and back are very sore and I blame the slight weight gain and the weather... LOL !! At least I can avoid buying the junk so at least I am not tempting myself. Mike actually shopped for groceries yesterday. NICE !! I have meals planned for week and will cook tomorrow.

Keep pushing ladies !

Carol.....
The huge gain was due to eating VERY UNHEALTHY for one whole week. CARBS were everywhere......FRIED foods did not get missed....JUNK food all week! Just totally .....Totally lost the plot!
Got a grip on myself this past week and it dropped a big amount of weight off ( last pounds on were the easiest to come off) once I went back to my *healthy* 1200 calorie eating
Still 5.4 pounds over my last weigh in from the challenge.....I think these will be harder to move but I have stopped being * crazy* so even if it is slow.....
I hope they come off and I keep the 9.8 off as well!

PS.....I can only report what the emoticon s tell me.....even if they do seem wrong!

Whew! I discovered that I can copy from your posts, but I have to file it on my desktop first. that's how Sharon got me the team logo for the last challenge.

So, Brenda, I copied the "shoe", thank you. The numbers on the enlargement didn't come out clearly, but I can write them in.

No I just have to exercise emoticon
