Awesome!

congratulations!... sincerely

 

this is mfp. right?

I've not focused so much on fitness AND my diet.  but clearly you are in a great place right now!

have you started to some weight loss?

 

I've had some (WLoss) in the past; and my experience is that even when you are doing great progress is slow.

Yeesh, friend, that is a LOT on your plate at once.

 

Please, don't ever beat yourself up about not being able to update. Really. The forums are here as a tool, for you to use in the way that works best for you. There are no rules or standards for how often you're "supposed" to post - whatever works for you, is the "right" way to do it.  :) 

 

Way to go on your consistency - that is amazing. Three weeks is a lot!!  :D

Checking in for a minute. Ok, less than that.

 

Feeling overwhelmed. Trying to keep the momentum through this coming week.

 

Priorities:

Keep calorie tracking (I'll hit 30 days on Saturday)

Email contractor 

Figure it next year health insurance

That's what usually keeps me on track when I'd otherwise tend to drop things: keep it veeeeery short and veeeeery simple, but keep it. You've got this, keep going.

Legally bound to hug people in need.

 

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

I need to embrace this more.

 

I have been able to embrace it on the NFA discord. But struggle here.  I think this week I will go stupid simple. and literally post the time of day :)

 

... some train of thought i had about how i have a hard time finding the time.. to even give it the time of day...

Week 2 Plan:

  • Manage calorie intake: less than 1700
    • From the NFA discord: 
      • Mike prompted finding how to enjoy the journey more.
      • "For me I take an extra moment to be thankful on what I’ve been able to do so far, and a thought of excitement in seeing the number creep up. Big milestones are always fun but the day to day grind is important as well, and they don’t always get the recognition it should have. Again, nothing big but just a moment to realize what you have done."
    • Food prep by cooking vegetable soup

The 25 days is farther then I thought I would get.

 

Like walking to elementary school- keep taking one more step, then taking a bit to look back it settles in how far I have gone. i was always surprised that the second half went faster than the first!

This is harder then ai thought.

 

at 6:40 something I mustered the courage to step on the scale.. I have been dreading i gained.. 

 

I said i was down almost 20 LB... !!!

- when  logged it o got a 'congratulation screen'  - but closed w/o a screenshot

- I did share it with my wife

 

 

I have made 5-9 attempts to share it, hear, FB, Discord... 

 

** attempt = though i could share. i opened the app 1-3 times

WOOT!

congrats! sincerely GJ.

 

I echo the part of about not even Knowing.  all my weight loss has happened like this.... it just happens and you're all shocked and surprised about it.

Consistency is everything 

 

and clearly, now demonstrably, you have been consistent.

28 days is a full linear cycle

And I kept calories in check on free lunch day ( Marco's pizza)

 

I followed up on the gym pass reimbursement from insurance it's not going to work out largely because we're changing our insurance December 1st

 

Stayed up a bit late last night. Work with the wife to decide on Remodel and moving plans oh and kids so basically created A Five-Year Plan with the wife.

 

Getting closer to figuring out what computer I want to build. Inspected in until 1 but when is checked it forms is recommending AMD again how do you even make

 

I've been trying to buy a Google home or Google home mini for a long time but the wife is against it. I got one for almost free. And showed her how it and say cell phone speaker. And she's like if I known it could do that then we would have gotten one a long time ago.

 

Pictures of the bottom cuz I don't know how to put it in a spoiler tag on a mobile phone

30 days logging calories!!!

I have attempted that 5+ times!

 

Feels like beating the First level boss. The whole level has been showing you different skills. Either you picked a favorite and where unprepared and died. Or you deliberately did each skill and moved on!

 

Combining that each skill theory and feeling like I got pass the tracking wall ( it is easier again) part of week 3 plan will be daily activity.

Mid Aug I was turned away from donating blood because of high blood pressure. Dec 12, 56 days from them, I have another donation scheduled.

 

I hope I can donate.

 

I have slightly increased my activity. I don't know if it is the best activity (strength vs cardio) I have lost 20#. I have tracked my bp almost weekly.

 

I have discussed weight, cholesterol and blood pressure with a family doctor under traditional medical and insurance. But only got answer of, eat healthily, exercise right, oh and hear is a pill...

 

Fast forward to last week:

The insurance benefit from my employer now includes and an option for Direct Primary Care. The information shared likes promising! It does not start until December 1st. But what could it hurt to ask...

 

Today, I reached out asking if we can create a plan, even if the plan does not start officially until Dec 1st

That is such a noble reason to look for a heallthier life style!  I hope you are able to give.

 

It also reminds me I should be giving blood regularly, I haven't in years because of life.  But being able to save someone elses when they're in need surely means it should be a priority.
