Here I go again (again,again🙃)

Good morning all.

I have been lurking again. I’ve previously been a member ( but not for a very long time!) and feel the need to connect again if you’ll have me 🤞

I lost my way a little over the last year or so, due to family bereavement, work stress, moving house and my partner being made redundant and definitely confirmed to myself that I am an emotional eater.

😠😵😂😖➡️🧁🍔🍟🍕🍫➡️🤦🏻‍♀️

I do feel ready to embrace the challenge again and do this for me! I am 50 in December and want to be a fitter, slimmer me as I enter my 50th year - it’s my present to myself 🎁

I have decided however, that I am not going to become a slave to the scales - that really doesn’t work for me, (a slight gain and I throw the towel in) so I’m going to track my calories using MFP, have restarted Couch to 5k and am going to record monthly measurements instead of weight.

I would still like to be part of this community, but won’t be joining a weigh in group. Hope that’s okay 👌

Brilliant! I’m going for 1850 per day (12950 per week) I’m going weekly so that the bottle of wine I know I will have this weekend is taken off my weekly allowance rather than daily allowance. We can do this!!! Power to the lurkers 😉

My late wife died of cancer 2½ years ago, but I got slim and fit in time for my 70th birthday.I find that my Apple Watch helps - along with a Reduced Carbohydrate, High-Fat diet (LCHF), and Intermittent Fasting. See:

I find that making yourself do things differently helps. Part of the reason we are where we are is because we stick to doing the same things.

Good luck!
