Merry Go Round. I'm so good during the day, then it comes time to go to bed, and I'm battling with myself not to go eat everything in the fridge. Sucks. emoticon

I am maintaining, but I have to work at it daily. I have challenges with my diet because I have gastroparesis, and challenges with exercise because I have chronic bone pain from cancer and chronic anemia from chemo. I am not using cancer as an excuse to give up though!

Definitely a roller coaster, but not a very steep one. Like a kiddie roller coaster. Up a little, down a little, up, down...and pretty relaxed about it. Now that my mindset is back into focus, though, I am working on climbing the mountain. emoticon

Lately my effort has been like a light switch, 4 days on, 3 days off. Not good considering I used to have 6 days on then 1 day off. A couple of pounds heavier, I am now trying to get back on track!

Very slow uphill climb. I'm almost where I want to be, so it's slow but steady.

Off and on, like a light switch, sometime you leave it on for a long time, and other times, you shut it off, often. Been that way for around 50 yrs. I'm used to it. It means I really don't want to do it, and I need to face that fact.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

Standing still as it has for the last 15 months. I even went to an endocrinologist. During the initial appointment, I think he didn't believe that I work out as much as I do. I still don't think he believes me but I finally am going in for some additional tests.

I am definitely on a roller coaster, up and down and loop to loop. I need a consistent ride..

I'd have to say "merry go round". It does seem as though I just keep going around the "mountain" rather than climbing it. It's the same thing over and over. the thing that SP has changed about this time is that I recognize it and there are members out there who are struggling with the same things and who challenge me every day to do better for myself.

Thanks for a great question for self-reflection! emoticon

None of those.

I call my struggle "Depth charge"

I blogged about it today.

I am below my "happy weight" (which has been lowered and lowered and lowered - should now be 127 pounds on my home scale), but due to my condition I have to be hovering over my "ideal weight".

So, I'm doing a type of workout now that causes total body soreness the next day ... then some of my blood sugar readings go back up, and I have to repeat the cycle ...

Now 103 pounds less than at age 24–w/o surgery!

I'm like Karen - up a bit, down a bit, up a bit more, back to my low weight. Today is my new start so back to exercise and eating better.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.
