Love the tree Mike! I have had my room decorated for a few weeks now and just put up my little 4-footer! I'd much rather have yours, but I definitely don't have the room!

I honestly am thinking diet does. When I was having them 5+ times a day, it was back before I really felt like I could lose weight and ate very unhealthily. For the past two weeks now, since I've started watching my intake and making sure I am eating homemade food with fresh fruits and veggies and high levels of grain, I have not had one! This makes me really happy to say the least! And I have been battling this in full force for over a year now.

Hope:

May I borrow your goal #12: Stop being such a hater - to me?
I'm likely in a manic phase where that is concerned now, but this problem was biting me earlier this month at the most inauspicious times.

As for the mouse issue, you need a small cage varmint trap. The medium size worked really well when we had a squirrel problem a while back. They couldn't resist chunky peanut butter.

That one is small compared to the one I got years ago. That one I had to cut 3-4' off the bottom and it STILL hit the peak of the ceiling. It kept falling and destroying ornaments. It was more hassle than it was worth. After that I said never again.

Crawling back with my head hung low and my tail between my legs in shame. Just teasing--I know you all have that unconditional patience and support for those of us who go astray.

In my absence from our group I ate poorly and gained weight. I'm sure my blood test scheduled for the end of December would show I'm back in the pre-diabetic range, but I know if I'm really faithful to my low carb diet I can get my blood sugar back to normal by the end of February. So I shot my doc an email of cofession and asked for her approval of pushing back my scheduled lab test for blood sugar, cholestrol and triglycerides from the end of December to the end of February. She sent me back an email of support and good faith and her blessing to reschedule the blood test.

Simple goals this week
Portion control
Select most foods from metabolism boosting foods list
25g net carbs (after deducting fiber)
minimum 120g protein
maximum 250mg dietary cholesterol
take supplements
exercise 5 days
water 64 oz.

I know I said I'd post goals for the week yesterday, but I forgot/slacked, so here they are:

1.) Less than 1400 calories/day
2.) Go to the gym x2
3.) Walk to/from work from/to car x3
4.) Drink 64 oz water/day

Pretty basic stuff for the week.

So, over Thanksgiving (I think it was on Saturday), the four of us were sitting around the table, and I mentioned that I'd gained back about ten pounds, and my mom kind of grimaced and was like, oh Joanna, you shouldn't... blah, whatever. I really didn't take it personally, 'cause I know she meant it like, I don't want to see you go through that again. Now, she's been saying for the past year that she needs to lose some weight, but she never really does anything proactive about it, just keeps making excuses for why she can't do things we've suggested. So I said, somewhat disgruntledly, "I'll lose 10 lbs if you lose 10 lbs." She just kind of shrugged it off. But! The end result after more discussion is that all four of us (Mom, Dad, my sister, and I) have now got a "First to 10 lbs lost" challenge going! We all are putting in $10, and whoever gets there first wins the pot. We've got a weekly thread going with weigh-ins and whatever goals we feel like putting down. My sister is so excited about it - she's pretty healthy, long-distance runner type, although has gained some weight recently. Anyway, so now I've got extra motivation!

Mern do you get fasting glucose checked or just A1C? The reason I ask is I go to a kidney specialist who is now checking my A1C (glucose level for 3 months) and I don't want to have to go to family Dr at the same time for the same thing. But I only go every 6 months to kidney dr.

That's great! My mum is doing the same thing with me (sort of). She's gonna pay me $100 for losing 50lbs. She even said she'd pay it in small goal form, like $20 for each 10 I lose. I know she feels I am overweight as well, so it's nice when your family tries to help with motivating you!

Good goals too! I need to really work on my water intake. I'm trying to drink more decaf tea. Good luck with your challenge!

And Donna replied: I don't have any strong feelings on the matter, but do have an opinion. I like the idea of moving this thread out of the Women's Only section. Wouldn't want any men to feel too intimidated to join us. They help keep the discussions well, um, rounded. (No, um, pun intended.

Perhaps the best place to move these threads would be into a new section under FitDay Forums, called Motivation. Keeping the title and the section heading rather generic, it opens the commentary to a wide range of topics.



I like the idea of moving our thread to another section AND I like Donna's idea of a forum called Motivation.
