Yes, nice whoosh Heidi!

So I failed at my restart yesterday. Little blip in my schedule and it threw me all off. Lame!! Just had a low carb breakfast though and started a no cheat challenge with my hair stylist yesterday (starting today) so 🙏🏻🤞🏻.

I want to be under 200 by new year.

Okay, weighed in at 235.2 this morning...not good!

In other news, mom is still home but I think we are heading back to the hospital sooner rather than later. She is retaining fluids, has a wet cough, and we upped her oxygen amount because her at rest oxygen was hovering around 80%. She is supposed to be at 92%.

I leave for Texas tomorrow and I'm very VERY worried she will take a turn for the worse without me hovering over her. What's your oxygen level, what's your pulse, did you gain any weight? These are things my step brother just won't ask. He's super good about putting on her oxygen tank harness to her rollerator, or making her a meal, but asking for stats....not so much because he can't put them all together to see if there is a problem. His brain doesn't work that way. It doesn't help that mom likes to phrase things with a positive spin.

For example, yesterday she said "Look my ankles aren't swollen, that's something good"...to which he replied "Oh yeah that is good"...to which I replied "Doesn't that mean your 3 pound weight gain is likely fluid in your lungs then?"....I don't mean to be so glum, but I have ALWAYS been a very practical person. I'm not ever going to be that person that puts her head in the sand like things are fine. Nor can I control any of this, which is really hard on me.

I'll try and keep y'all posted but I leave for TX tomorrow, be back Friday.

I'm not so great at double posting, especially with the week I've had...

It's the first day of fall. I was 239.8 the first day of my summer boot camp which was June 24th, so that's 30 lbs. gone. The first 3 weeks were difficult. The rest really was not, but was sometimes a pain to take the time to get my 3 miles in when there were other things I would rather have done. It was also a bit of a pain not to have any sugar or flour or rice or pasta when people got together for dinners or birthdays or picnics, but it wasn't too bad. Now that boot camp is over I have transitioned to the Fall of Good Choices and will still aim for LC and 3 miles a day for the most part. I still have a way to go, however, Onderland is now less than 10 lbs. away and I am NOT blowing it this time!

Other good news is that hubby may get to come home tomorrow. During rounds this morning, his doctor told him he's doing a lot better. Thanks again for all of the concern and well wishes and prayers for him.

Kit, you can do it! Let's hold hands! The first three weeks are the hardest then it's easy peasy. On the other site I posted something the other day that has helped me for a couple of days and that's the 'would you rather' game. I like to snack at night which is bad when I'm trying to do IF with a 6 hour eating window early in the day, but it would work for anything. I asked myself, "would you rather have a delicious LC but high calorie and high salt snack tonight or have a good weigh-in tomorrow." It's helped for two nights. I'm trying to kick the snack habit before bed.
Caco, oh my, your mom's health issues sound vaguely familiar. I hope you can get on top of things. When my mom had a surgery planned I was going to go out to help the first two weeks even though my sister lives with her because my sister isn't exactly the nurturing type either.

Sosumi - sorry your dealing with stress right now. That can really mess with the weigh-ins and the eating. Just got through it myself and hoping it lays low for a while.

I wasn’t able to weigh-in this morning before breakfast but I had another good day. Net carbs = 16.

Ang - you’ve lost nearly 20 pounds in less than one month?!? Phenomenal! Keep up the good work. By next summer break you’ll feel like a million bucks!!
