Hello All. I am proposing, for those of us who gain weight during the challenge that we adjust our numbers to show a change in START .... GOAL....CURRENT #s to go still equal to 5lbs.

The reason is that we still need motivation to lose the 5 lbs. It is easier to be motivated to lose that 5lbs, rather than to have to lose 8 or 10.

I hear where your coming from IFnewstart because we do need to stay motivated but for me personally and for myself only I'd rather put the gain and leave it at that because if I gain from going off plan it's usually just water weight and if I adjust it back to 5 lbs to lose and get back to plan I can whoosh off a good 3-4 lbs and be bumped ahead on rank just because of that and I don't feel it's fair to others who are losing by staying the course. And I'm not saying all gains are because of being off plan and this is why I say me personally. If anyone else wants to readjust I'm not opposed to it cause my challenge is really a challenge within myself. And I'm all in for everyone to keep motivated however they choose. We're all here for each other and I will cheer you all on 😍

I have been doing this challenge since way back when....we all experience those ups, and while it can be demotivating initially, it is just another bump in the road.

I did not weigh this morning, I am probably up and I will be to recording daily till I go away, yet again.
For myself, I prefer to keep the same stats I have, I do believe we all play by our own rules and if you feel better changing a stat to reflect what works best for you, I am all for it.

Last night I was being taunted by a pack of Reesie Easter eggs so I went to my daughter's room to tell them to shut up and they jumped me! Jumped me right in my mouth 😂😂😂 Gotta laugh and get right back on plan. So with that being said I am up a bit more this morning. Shaking it off like a fighter about to go in the ring 😉 I'm ready to get back at it and go in swinging, knock out these carbs!
Wishing you all a great day 💕

As most of you know and for those who are new to "Susan and I", we have known each other for 10+ years, we met here on this form, and though we have never sat down and had a coffee together, we have had all those conversations that best friends would have over a morning coffee.
So I was struggling, and yesterday she told me, in the kindest of ways, to eat even though I was not hungry, not because I was in ketosis, but because I was depressed, life hit me in the face and it was upsetting, old wounds are the best description.
What did Susan say, remember to eat before you go down that old path. For me that was starve and binge. It was well after 5pm, I was not hungry but I made myself a bowl of cauliflower mash with butter and spices, and then later I did myself up a chicken breast with tumeric and cumin and butter with a side of spinach....and what happened.....my buddy reminded me to "love myself"...to "take care of myself"...and to not follow that old pattern.
That I think is the most important thing about this forum, you get to know each other, you get to know each others struggles, and we become friends who, "with the kindest" of words, say....remember, the path, I care enough about you to warn you I recognize this path please take care of yourself and be healthy, you are important.
Thank you Susan from the bottom of my heart.
