  • I'm glad you had a lovely weekend. It looks like you are primed to jump right back in. Good Job!

    • AH, Canio, I thought of it long ago, not implemented it till today (so far so good), I am also taking the long way back from the upstairs bathroom. Trying to increase my NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis)-a fancy way of saying I gotta get off my butt!

      Thanks P, oddly easy to jump back in, still loving the 5:2 a lot! I was gone for 5 days so technically I didn't go "off" the plan.

          • my weight this morning is up 2 pounds from last weeks low, but still 2 pounds lower than my up day weight from last week. After a 5 day vacation I will take it!

            We are officially in summer mode here. We work when we are in town, get DD ready for her trip, get DS ready for his last camp as a youth, as well as getting him ready for counseling a couple of camps and to go off to school. There are shots and tests and physicals that have to be taken care of and of course the supply list is a bit long. The getting ready is always more stressful for me than once they are actually gone for the most part. But DS is away at camp next week so I can focus on DD. then she is gone mid-June for the rest of the summer so then I will be able to focus on getting DS ready for college. Just taking one day at a time, easier that way!

            • good job with the vacation and this WOE. If I am not mistaken this is a much improved result compared to previous vacations.

              • In the past I would often lose weight on vacation, but not in the past couple of years. And the whole "what can I eat" has created a lot of stress in the last 3 or 4 I have taken. So yes, I would consider it a huge improvement. Thanks

                • Well, rats, TTOM started yesterday. Thought I was done with them, had put them out of my mind, then bam here it is again.

                  Last night my DD made biscuits to go with their dinner. There was one left when I was putting the dinner dishes away. I think you can see where I am going with this. I did add some KerryGold, and at least they were homemade. So my under 500 calories day went up to almost 700. I can live with it. Another low day today. Tomorrow is my "official" weigh in for the 5:2 forum. They actually calculate the average weight loss for the people who are on the forum and even break it down by gender and age, etc. Fun to see.

                  DD has been giving me attitude since we got back from Florida. Yesterday she said something to me about not being happy, and I said I was happy but didn't love getting attitude thrown at me. She said if I was happy I should say happy things (?), to which DS responded, saying (essentially) well little Miss Sunshine you should take your own advice. It caught her off guard because it is always me or my fault with her, and having someone who usually sides with her turn it around gave her a little shock. She instantly cleaned up her act. Awesome. Now if DH would stop his "we will be dead by then" mantra, life would be great!

                    • wow.. its nice how your son could see the whole situation and give her another perspective. Whether its old habits or a tunnel version of perspective its great your daughter might see it another way. We all know parenting is not for the faint hearted! LOL

                      • Now if DD could just get DS to answer my questions without attitude we would be doing well! Yeah, they say growing old is not for wussies, try parenting sometimes right? Luckily parenting comes with a lot more rewards!

                        For some reason Dh has started this whole "I'll be dead by then" to end many conversations. Last night it was about a Mars orbit (or something like that) that will be happening in the 2030's. I said "shit that is less than 20 years" and he said "have you read the obituaries, no many people make it to their 80's" I was like yeah well a 101 y.o. just ran the London Marathon last year! I think he is freaking out because he is getting close to the age his dad was when he had his first heart attack. Driving me nuts! That phrase comes out of his mouth at least twice a week! Eventually he will be right, but if I have to listen to him predict it for the next twenty years I will make him right a whole lot sooner than that!

                        • Make a deal with him. Every time he says, "I'll be dead by then," he has to add $10,000 to his life insurance policy. If he complains say, "Well, as you are dying so soon we need the financial support, and anyway, it's not like we will be paying higher premiums for long. You'll be dead by then."

                          • love it!

                            He is actually, physically, one of the healthiest people I know. He exercises regularly, does a lot of non-exercise movement, is the correct weight for his height (and has been for decades-since junior high school) and eats a reasonable, varied diet. Much different than his dad at the same age. I think of him as a pessimist, he considers himself a realist. potaito/potahto

                            • Well, hopefully he will be around a good while yet. It sounds like he is doing things right (beyond the complaining).

                              • yes, I think it is likely. I also read about a recent study somewhere that found pessimists generally live longer. Which explains all the grumpy old people in nursing homes, well that and the fact that they are in nursing homes.
