Time to start my summer check-in and re-listen to podcasts. My weight is still going up, so I am at a spot that I'm going to count calories along with No S. I have never ever weighed this much (except when around 6 months pregnant). I obviously need far fewer calories after menopause and no more babies and toddlers to chase around. (I work out 5 days a week always consistently on treadclimber or maxtrainer).
My No S has been a little more lax lately, mostly due to watermelon/cantaloupe season. But my ice-cream fixation has really gone down after doing a 21 day NO ICE CREAM. My next goal is to do a 21 day NO sweets at all.
Also I keep experimenting about writing my food down on here each day or not. I really do better when I write it down. Otherwise a little bite of something goes by unnoticed. I definitely need to get my No S strictness back on track AND step up my fence around the law.

B- Protein bar, more coffee than usual, watermelon
L/D- Taco salad, no bowl eating, chips (brought leftovers home for d)

Ok, yay! I did well for the rest of the day. I was tempted by crunchy Cheetos, and now dh begging me to try his burger. Slightly hungry but hoping to start enjoying this feeling lol Mr. Green

Welcome to your summer check-in! I hope it goes well for you. Maybe calorie counting for awhile will help you get an idea of a good plate size for the future. (I've found that I had to go to smaller plates for most meals--I definitely don't eat like I did when I was younger, LOL! Sometimes that's hard to remember!)

I'm still here, just not posting too much (as dd has online classes on this computer). Felt the need to write because I had a big late night binge last night. No good excuses, well there never is....as always dh left on a trip yesterday and I had big sneak-fest. Still did that without tripping up my 21 day conquest of no sweets. And then trying to compensate today, I've managed to eat White Cheddar popcorn and Ritz crackers through the day. All in all, a very Embarassed RED Embarassed 24hrs. Now I'm about to stuff my bloated self into a bathing suit and take the boys to the pool, ughhhhhh! Shocked

July will be better! Do you think the no sweets precipitated the fails? Or more just the old sneak habit? I spent several days with a friend recently- I'm hardly ever around people for days at a time. I found myself thinking of really chowing down when I was on my own, which happened a fair amount because her need for sleep is much greater than mine. But it was also when she'd take a shower. It felt so silly! She wouldn't have cared a feather if I had eaten when she was awake so there was no reason to feel like I had to eat secretly. It was just old tapes.

Then again, I've come to believe we can't really always know why we do things, and the remedy is pretty much the same. Stick it out and wait for the next meal!

I hope you enjoyed your time at the pool with your boys. Nothing can replace these days with our kids--just focus on what a treasure it is to be with them and don't worry about weight or swimsuits.

Thank you guys, it's been an interesting couple of days. I'm gearing up to take my daughter to her 2 day orientation class for college in a few more days. Been doing half way decent of eating. Still no sweets, messed up a bit having chips with my Mexican.

Not bad.

Seems early to be going off for orientation, but what an exciting time! All these years later I still have fond memories.

My No S friends, my 17 year old died on Thursday. I feel like you all have been with me through all the tough times. Here's her obituary page:

I don't even know what to say about the last few days, but thank you for the kind words. It's so hard.

My chest and stomach went completely hollow when I read your message. I wish there was a way to enfold you in comfort. May your family be healed soon.
