Sonya's checkin

Counting carbs/calories is a drag. Obsessive scale stepping is a recipe for despair. If you want to count something, "days on habit" is a much better metric. Checking off days on a calendar would do just fine, but if you do it here you get accountability and support. Here's how. Start a new topic in this forum called (say) "Your Name Daily Check In." Then every N day post a "reply" to that topic as to whether you stayed on habit. A simple "<font color="green">SUCCESS</font>" or "<font color="red">FAILURE</font>" (or your preferred euphemism if that's too harsh) is sufficient, but obviously you're welcome to write more if you want. On S-days just register that you're taking an S-day. You don't have to do this forever, just until you're confident you've built the habit. Feel free to check in weekly or monthly or sporadically instead of daily. Feel free also to track other habits besides No-s (I'm keeping this forum under No-s because that's what the vast majority are using it for). See also my <a href="/habitcal/">HabitCal</a> tool for another more formal (and perhaps complementary) way to track habits.

Kind of a rough week for eating, due to boredom and being at home too much. Will enjoy the sweekend, and start fresh on Monday!

Getting over a killer cold and sore throat here, 3.5 weeks in.
Am working on keeping to a 3 meal schedule. My electric frying pan died, so I am making do on an enameled pan on 1 electric burner.
I shared dessert with a friend at lunch, so today is red, but generally I've been doing pretty well. I'm down 9# from a super high weight after the holidays.
