    1/20/2017 6:30:08 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    I was thinking of giving my dad's lung doctor a note about his sleeping habits to see if a sleep study to see if he might have sleep apnea. He is having the same problems that I was having before I was told that I had sleep apnea. He is low on energy, takes long naps (more than 2 hours sometimes), a... Read more

    1/20/2017 3:16:59 PM, by DADDYSGIRL210

    20 days later, I weigh myself and think, " it almost three weeks! Why aren't I losing faster." But, I know that's unrealistic, it's just me needing to learn to be patient with myself. Two weeks in and I'm down 2.8 lbs. so, averaging a pound a week. Which, at this point, seems likes I should be losin... Read more

    I'm just gonna say it, I'm a wino. A lush. Being Russian aside, I love drinking. I would say, and so would my friends and family, that about 90% of the weight I've gained is from alcohol. I don't actually eat that much. If left to my own devices and this was true for most of last year, I would forge... Read more

    1/20/2017 8:08:47 AM, by SVAN13MARTINS

    For probably 8 months or more of the last year, I lost my appetite. This was due in part to a new medication that I was on, I believe. I can't prove it, as nothing in the literature online supports that theory. All I know is that very soon after I started taking it, I completely lost my appetite. Th... Read more

  • OMG H2O!!

    1/19/2017 8:14:55 AM, by MRSBAZ1193

    I have been off track for about three months due to an injury. It's hard to exercise and have motivation when you're not allowed to walk and you have to keep your leg above your heart. I joined a "get yourself moving it's a New Year group" to give myself some accountability. I know all the right thi... Read more

    I've been turning to food a lot lately to combat my mourning... Its harder to cry when you are chewing, forcing yourself to swallow breaks up the hyperventilating breathing patterns when your sobbing. The act of filling yourself, when there is such an emptiness. When you are home alone, and no one t... Read more

    1/19/2017 7:06:54 AM, by JULMATT

    I have diabetic nerve pain, and other pains and aches that goes along with playing softball for five years full out and not caring about how I treated my body. When I was younger I never thought of how it would affect me when I got older. (Iā€™m still not that old, but my body sure feels like it.) ... Read more

    1/19/2017 1:00:53 AM, by CAROL0512

    3-4 days of tracking and I have gained two pounds. Not the way I want to be going. Each day I seem to eat too many carbs/fat. Each day I hope I get better because I will lose weight. I want to buy myself a very nice clothes outfit when I get to a decent size. That will be out of the plus size. Wh... Read more

    I took a fitness class this morning, and there were only two of us. It was nice to have the room all to ourselves.

    Having a discouraging day. First my weight was up. Then we had a meeting with a guy who buys houses. The price he quoted me was not as much as I had hoped for.
