Well my brother SIL and Nephew came in and I blew my eating this past week. Then I had low back pain I to my right leg so I took a few days off for that. So back at it again.

I understand that strategy......ignorance is bliss???????

You will get back on track here. Glad you got your steps in again.
I have been doing better on exercise, but have been slipping backwards a little on diet pop....

I drink diet soda and have no intention of giving it up.

10000 steps in.

On plan.

I don't know if ignorance is bliss but it sure keeps me from getting in a funk I'm too good at being hard on myself so I'm trying to give myself a break. I screwed up. Just tell myself OK. Now get back at it. And I did.

Hurt my back muscles at work. Lifting rolled up 8x10 area rugs to arrange them right. Every time I think I'm over it , I'm not. I know no more low back exercises or bending exercises until it is well and then some. It's not bad pain, just muscle but it hurts dang it.

My back hurts, but it is from lack of excercise

hope yours heals up.

Going back to weekly goals. This monthly thing just doesn't work.

Motorcycle or horseback 4 x per week.

Only 1 dessert or chocolate goodie every day. (today's already eaten)

1 SF drink each day----water rest of day.

That is the starting point for this next week.

The scale has crept up past my personal, mental limit. So time to get SERIOUS>

Going back to Weekly goals, and first and foremost is 2# per week weight loss from now til the end of the year.

That would put me at 180 to start the new year. Very aggressive goal, but I have been complacent for too long.

Other weekly goals.

Drink water and only one SF drink per day allowed (includes Coffee)

Workout 4 days per week.

Quitting with two things to see if I can get them accomplished

I have been sticking to water. No coffee for two days. No pop on Monday or Tuesday. Worked out Monday, and have a class tomorrow morning.

We all need one of those, too. I appreciate it.

So far this week, I am staying on track. Food is not one of my goals for this week. I am eating smart, but not focusing on that. Did buy lettuce, so working at least one salad in.

(2 nights of porterhouse steak and salad......I am suffering thru this food)

Having a pop tonight.....first soda all week. That is pretty good for me.

I have done exercise class 3x this week, and stayed away from pop.

Just wish the scale was more friendly, but I feel like steps in the right direction.

How is anyone else doing?

Hi I am new here, but have been a low carb believer for a long time. My challenge is that I am 48 and going thru menopause and now I am struggling to lose 15 pounds. Any suggestions?
