Welcome Annalise!

I am glad you are joining us on our journey to better health through small lifestyle changes.

I was away from home and a scale this past weekend as I was attending Matsuri (Japanese Festival) in Phoenix. I had fun teaching origami in the Arizona Origami Society booth, walking around the festival, eating at the festival (yummy mochi and onigiri), as well as eating and folding with origami friends. Did I mention eating? I weighed myself yesterday and the scale showed that I am a couple pounds heavier than when I left but my heart and spirit is several pounds lighter from enjoying time with friends, old and new. While I frequently break the informal rule about not posting while traveling or on vacation, I will wait until next week to return to normal posting. ;)

    Still pretty much treading water at the moment - neither losing nor gaining more than a pound or so either way.

    It could be worse, but it's frustrating. I can do better, but seem to have lost my inspiration for the moment. *sigh*

    P.S. I'd say my new avatar was a self portrait - but it's been a long while since I could kick my leg that high!

    Linjeakel, for me those periods of time with little change in either direction seem to be where my body seems to be consolidating and setting a new normal high point before starting a new downward trend. That way I see those regular plateaus as more positive than negative. I am currently on one of those as well.

    P.S. i have never been able to kick or hold my leg that high. I was able to sit in full Lotus however. I can't do that any longer either.

    For the week ending 16 March 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH.

    Take care of yourself and others in this stressful time by doing what you can to stay healthy and flatten the infection curve. I am not currently worrying about flattening my personal curves but am working to stay fit.

    This morning I weighed 1.1 pounds less than yesterday morning.  I donated a pint of blood to the Red Cross. The old saying "a pint is a pound the world around" might apply. I'll see if that weight loss is still in effect on Monday. ;D

    Wonderful!

    As expected, I once again weigh exactly what I did before donating blood. ;)

    I slowly lost 5-6 pounds between Jan. 15 - March 1. This week I put it all back on, being home mostly.  I am taking walks but it's not enough. Health club (swimming) closed one week ago.

    Hope everyone is well.

    Mlewis, I have done the same but still weigh less than this time last year. I look at that as progress. Also, the more we all shelter at home, the sooner this will be over.

    For the week ending 23 March 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH. Weighing less than DH will be easy as long the stores are well stocked with Cadbury Mini Eggs. After the Easter supply is over it will be more difficult. ;D

    Thank you. I took a substantial walk in Riverside Park Thursday. I think I kept a good distance but there are a lot of runners and bikers. I'll use the indoor bike today.

    Everyone stay well, please.

    My weight hasn't changed by even a tenth of a pound the last four times I stepped on the scale this week. Considering that I have spent most of the week sitting at a sewing machine, I am counting that as very positive. :D

    The twin hazards of the lockdown - comfort eating and lack of exercise - do not a happy partnership make. *sigh*

    For the week ending 6 April 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH.

    The comfort eating hazards have affected DH the most even though he has been much more physically active than I have. I attribute this to the fact than I cannot eat salty, oily, or sticky snacks while sewing masks to donate to the local hospitals and others in essential jobs. So my primary comfort foods are apple slices, carrots, and GF tortillas with cream cheese. OK, that last one is a bit hazardous but I am trying to stretch out both the cream cheese and the tortillas due to intermittent shortages of cream cheese and GF tortillas. I cannot get my favorite GF tortillas as those were purchased at a farmers market that is now closed. I have yet to find a recipe for them that works for me. At least one brand at a local store is ok and doesn't give me intestinal issues if I don't eat more than one a day. ;)

    Also, I never got around to baking my birthday GF butterscotch brownies. Not enough time to make it high enough on the essential activities list! Probably a good thing as that would probably add 6 pounds.  :o

    Stay safe and healthy!

    I am afraid to get on the scale. I am already noticing that I've lost some muscle tone and strength while not swimming and walking less, even though I do get out to walk some days. Those days completely at home are hard on the body but good for not catching the virus.

    I am continuing to overeat and under-exercise so this week is a very definite NO.  >:( :-[

    And I was doing so well before the lockdown.  :'(

    If PAW stood for gaining instead of losing, I would be on course the past couple weeks! ;D

    I figure that if we are staying well, that is good enough for now!

    May the Fourth be with you!

    Congratulations, NapCat!

    For the week ending 4 May 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH.

    I am spending too much time sitting at the sewing machine and consuming calories. However we are both still well as far as we can tell.

    Stay healthy!

    For the week ending 12 April 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH (but not by much).

    I have gained bach all the weight that I lost this year and now weigh what I did in early December. However, my weight is still staying within a 9 pound window over the last six months. Considering that the past 12 months covered an 18 pound range and this past six months is the lower half of that, I am happy. My eating is balanced and I know that I am not getting enough exercise to cover the extra desserts. However, eating ice cream in the evening with DH is definitely worth it. So is being able to donate masks to the Navajo and Tohono O'odham Nations. So, sewing and sharing more time with DH is staying on my schedule. But I will try to get more exercise as well. :D
