Highest Weight 187.4
Current Weight 116.4
Goal weight Range
Height 5'1"

What worked:
1. Adding weight range, to account for weight training.
 2. Eliminating pork helps me feel better.
 3. Spent time photographing other people's gardens.

What did not work:
1. Stressing about the number on the scale.
2. Adding back in pork. Whoa. Some sadness. I'm over it.
3. Not taking time to go to bed earlier.

    1. This is part of the sadness. I might try the cleanest bacon I can get. Or switch to no nitrate turkey bacon. Whaaaaa! I'm over it. I could go bacon less to avoid acne and inflammation.

  2. Hi Karen! So great on your weight! Yes, sleep is so important. When I started sleeping a little more per night, it was a lot easier to curb those evening/tired cravings.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Marion. Doing the Whole30 really helped me zero in on good sleep. And going to bed when feeling "snacky" helps keep my slippery slope thinking in line. :)

  3. Beautiful lavender! I go back and forth on the weigh theory... Sometimes I get on 3 times a week, sometimes once a week. I haven't decided what works for me yet. You're right...everyone's different. I DO feel a pang of disappointment when the weight is the same or higher. I try to put it out of my mind, but I wonder if I'm successful at that.

    1. Thanks, Kaki. I found that lavender on a walk. I always feel more dialed in when I'm at certain weights. Hard to explain. When my weight does vary to the higher side, I don't get too down, but I do like to see what's going on overall. Hormonal, too many carbs, too much salt, being sick can all cause an uptick. As long as there is return back to base line, I've learned to ride those waves. I don't get all negative or blame myself anymore. That makes all the difference. Thanks for stopping by.
