My scale said 154 today. I had a ton of water last night. Iíve been eating a lot of fast food these past few days. Yesterday I had 6 slices of Papa Johns pizza for dinner. Itís probably a bit of stress eating. Today Iím not very hungry and everything Iíve eaten will equal to around 1200 calories. So Iím back on track.

Rounded up to 159 this morning and having a really bad start to the day. I have to turn this around pronto! Still (barely) in maintenance range but the recent upward trend is not good.

Still maintaining around 205. It's been a rough week work wise, and haven't been able to squeeze in a workout since the weekend, but my activity level is still where it needs to be by getting my miles in. And diet wise it's been all good. My calves are killing me from walking yesterday, because I wore ballet flats and I guess walking nearly 5 miles in next to no sole makes my calves sore, lol. I'm taking it easy on the steps today and wearing well soled shoes. Going to rest, ice, heat, stretch, etc., and I'm sure it will be okay tomorrow.

I may or may not try to work out. I also thought I might try to go to a yoga class down the street instead of a gym workout.

It's going well. It's not intense, but I'm not intending it to be. This is about shifts in my habits, and weight loss over time. So anything drastic would not be the goal.

The low cost gym scheme turned out to cost a fortune for very little time and attention in the gym,so I vented my fury at the people who pushed the scheme to me,it's not low cost why didn't they say that and not waste my time.I am seeing the diabetic nurse for a weigh in on May 2nd,I will start a serious diet then and start exercising on my own at home and try to walk 30 mins a day.I prefer to do yoga anyway so when I can afford I will join a yoga class.

I was 150 yesterday. Yesterday wasnít good. I didnít weigh this morning. So far today Iíve had around 860 calories. I think Iím just going to have soup for dinner. I am in a pattern of one day at 1200 calories and one or two days at 2000 or so calories. I am just maintaining now.

I didn't weigh this morning. I suspect I was at or very close to 160. I went to the gym early AM and earlier tonight plus only had ~900 calories today, trying to cancel out a recent day or two of over eating. I will weigh in the morning and see if I can't get back on more of an even keel...

Lost another pound. The scale is definitely moving in the right direction. I'm glad. I ordered out a couple of times this past week but I made healthy choices. It was wonderful cause I had great meals and I didn't have to cook. Will try to do that more often. Got another FitBit to replace the one that was broken. This one seems to have a few issues. I'll remain hopeful that I can work with support to resolve them. Plan to focus on hitting my step goal every day.

157 this morning; very happy to see that. Now to see if I can keep from having wild swings in what I eat for a while...

Rounded up to 158. Instead of Friday being the first day paddling again, tomorrow will be. Probably not very intense as I should ease into it and my son, who hasn't paddled SUP yet, is going with me.
