Welcome Back Vicki! Sorry to hear you've not been having success with healthy living. Hope this helps you focus on what you want. As you know this (and other) team(s) is here to help however we can. You know how to do it. Make each decision count for being healthier. Sounds like you had fun on your vacation.
My big vacation isn't coming up until Thanksgiving so that will be a huge challenge as I'll be offline for 2 WEEKS! EEP! I've ever only done that once before and I'm hoping for better results this year. I need to start looking at the excursions/activities on board and planning for them. So I know what my routine will be before I get on board the ship. Yup, a 2 week cruise with my MIL & her husband. So looking forward to it.
Wanted to say hi and let you know a little about me other than my intro. I'm 55, soon to be 56 and I have been married 16 years to a wonderful guy that has CHF. I almost lost him 2 years ago but thankfully he made it thru and I've been working towards making healthier changes to both our diets to improve his heart strength. He's still only at 35 % and I know that's mainly because of his weight. He's well over 100 lbs too heavy and his age makes it hard for him to be willing to make changes he needs to make. And I've let myself go due to menopause, and stress eating so now it's time to finally get back into the swing of things and get this weight off once and for all. Recently I considered staying off the scale but I've been a scale watcher for 30 years and I just don't see that changing anytime soon. I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life and it's time I get back to a weight I know will be healthier for me. I'm working towards getting down to 185 lbs. I won't be thin but I'll be much healthier than I am now. Once I get to that weight I'll decide if I want to go lower.
