    Quarantine 15

    This is exactly what I am trying to avoid happening before I even reach my goal!! I have been purposely trying to eat less and go outside for a few minutes of exercise daily.

    4 months out and stuck

    This is helpful, because I feel like I am in a similar position. I have been stalled for the past couple of months but have just started fasting and exercising more to get to my goal. I think it is interesting that a doctor would say this instead of recommending a solution. Being on this site has opened my eyes about the differences in the amount of support provided from one medical practice to another.
  3. For the past couple of days it feels like I have been working non-stop between teleworking, helping the kids with their work and cleaning. I am trying to get to all of the little projects that I have not had time to do. But it’s only been a couple of days for me so may if it were longer I would be crawling up a wall😧 my future plans over the next week includes organizing, getting rid of things I truly don’t need, catching up on paperwork (will, taxes etc.) and to avoid eating junk. Take advantage of this unexpected, hopefully temporary situation and make a list of things you want to get done. The time will definitely pass.

    Why did I think think this post was going to be about the soda😀 I was ready to say that I had not had one in over a year and at certain times I want one really bad. But I see this is something way more serious. Unfortunately, people can only change when they want to. I am not sure the damage they will done with her having this serious addiction but there is only so much you can do. If you have offered advise and expressed your concerns it may be time to step back. I wish both of you the best.
  5. I only told my immediate family (husband and teenage children) and one coworker that I work directly with and who covers my work when I am off. This was done mainly for a safety standpoint because I had never had surgery before so If something happened they would know what was going on.

    🎈 Pity Party🎈

    All of my weight loss is coming from the upper part of my body. I am starting to resemble a girl in the early stages of developing boobs.🤣🤣

    I am pretty simple with any type of protein right now but I usually grill shrimp (in the oven) and make a shish kebab: shrimp, mushrooms, cherry tomato’s, and a few peppers, sprinkle with a tad bit of olive oil and a little seasoning of your choice. The good thing about shrimp is that it does not need a lot of seasoning and very easy to cook and save for the week.
  15. I thought this was supposed to be a positive board. Simply put everyone’s body and metabolism are not the same. We all know this so If I chose to say that I lose at a slower rate than someone else, sometimes it can be frustrating, then I move past it - then this should be a space to do so, without being put down or bombarded with “scientific facts” that is also not one size fits all. We all have our days where we may compare ourselves to others and then we are realistic and understand that we are not all the same and are thankful for what we have been able to do and the accomplishments we have made so far. Diet, exercise and genetics all play it’s roles in our weight loss as well as gain. Providing informative information and helpful is one thing but I do not understand the need to put others down.
