I saw my doctor yesterday and my at home scale was right, I have lost 4 lbs :) That's not bad for just substituting one or two meals a day with Slim Fast. I haven't been eating much because of sores in my mouth (which my doctor said is caused by a virus - she gave me medicine for it). I haven't ordered anymore pizza or fast food either.

I lost another pound.  I was surprised because I haven't been watching my calorie count like I should be lately.  I haven't exactly been eating everything in sight, but I haven't been paying attention to my portion sizes either.  I tried to monitor it more closely today though.

Does anyone here enjoy virtual races? I participate in them fairly frequently myself….the reason I ask is because I got maybe the most targeted ad I’ve ever gotten in my life on Instagram. It’s a My Little Pony virtual race! You get cutie mark pins along the way and a finishers medal at the end. Looks like there are two different challenges with two different sets of prizes. Thought I’d share it here too if anyone wants a pony themed incentive to get walking! :)

Well, now I don't know what is going on with my scale. Unless I have actually lost 20lbs it's way off. I tried to recalibrate it because I had to move it yesterday so I could mop the floor. Maybe I did it wrong or it needs new batteries.

The 27th I go to my doc to get weighed.

In other news, I'm doing great when it comes to cleaning my place. Inspections start tomorrow. I feel confident :)

I gained another pound last week and will probably gain another this week too.  :(


I was doing really good on my weight loss but lately I can't seem to stop eating more than I should.

If it makes you feel better, I've gained 5 over the last 2 weeks because my sister was here with her kids (bringing the stress of her impeding divorce), my brother was here (leaving rehab early because he hurt his shoulder and needed it to be looked at), so we had 6 extra people and 2 extra dogs here which made it even harder to make time to exercise and all we did was play card games and eat snack foods.  So now that my sister, her kids and dogs are gone I might be able to get back on track.  My brother has an appointment tomorrow to get the results of his MRI so if he doesn't have to have surgery, he'll go home this week.  And my dad went to the doctor this week to get treatment options for his prostate cancer (it's genetic on his line so we knew it was coming and he's been watching for it to catch it early) and he just tested positive for Covid, so he thinks he picked it up at the hospital.  And then there's work stuff because we're still trying to make our stuff fit in a smaller space and they want to open up again next week.  I can't imagine why my life is stressful right now.  :lol:

Just don't beat yourself up too much, Ponyfan.  You can do it.  :cheer:

:cheer:  You STILL lost 3 pounds!  Yay for you! :cheer:

Celebrate the little victories, too, you guys!  Each of us is working at our own rate and getting results so that's awesome! 
If you have a setback, take it for what it is, a setback.  It is temporary and won't be permanent unless you let it be. 

I've implemented "Active Anime Time" this week at work with a couple of my co-workers.  We turn on Haikyu (it's about a volleyball team and quite entertaining) in the gym and watch 1 episode while we exercise, stretch, or relax our minds (depending on what is needed) and there is no judgement.  Just an entertaining 22 minute cartoon and working out whatever we need to work out.  When we finish Haikyu (which is about 60 episodes so far on DVD) we will discuss if we want to continue with a new show or if it will just be me continuing.  I've already decided that this is a productive way to spend my lunch break and it frees up my evenings to do other things instead of exercise (unless I feel like doing more).

Thank you Black Curtains and Pokeyonekenobie. To my surprise I lost a pound last week.  Part of my problem is I've really been struggling with my health lately.  Some days I feel fine and other days it takes such an effort to just get out of bed that I don't have the energy to really focus on my portion sizes.  I'm not giving up though and will keep working on it.

That sounds like fun.  It I was working with you I'd be right beside you working out while we watched anime.  :)

Well I have been consistently weighing in at about 169 pounds for the last week or so, so I feel confident saying I have officially reached my goal of reaching 170 pounds! :frolic: I could probably still stand to lose a few more pounds, but for now I’m going to relax a little and enjoy my accomplishment of losing about 20 pounds. Took about a year, but this is the first time I’ve actually reached one of my weight loss goals, so I’m very proud!

I think in the meantime, I think my goal will be to walk 100 miles every month for the retro pony virtual race. I am on pace to hit that this month, so I think it should be a reasonable goal! :) Plus then I get one pin every month, so that should be fun!
