Mini-Goal is to be at, or below 235 by my birthday. No idea when I last saw that number, but definately prior to 2008 when my older sister and I moved in together. No excuses, she was dying and I was super stressed so hiding in my bedroom eating junk food became a real coping mechanism. I was up and down when I joined WW in 2009, but not sure what those numbers were on the scales.

Eventually I'll be required to return to working in the office, and would love to go back in better shape than when I left. That includes being more physically able as well!!!

May 11th, 2018 was my last round of chemotherapy. Next follow up with the Oncologist is February 2021.

I'm here to support my fellow FS Buddies, and to hold myself accountable for my choices. Best Wishes for us all to find a healthy balance in 2021.

Any Ideas or Suggestions
Good luck. It's hard to make suggestions since I'm not sure what you look like. If it were me, despite only being 5'3" and obese, I'd draw in bushy brown eyebrows, get a pastel colored Oxford dress shirt, and wear matching dark slacks & tie. That's if you want to come as "Jim Halpert" played by John Krasinski on The Office. I could totally rock the Phyllis Vance character, but doubt anyone in my office would have a clue, since these people don't apparently watch TV.

For the same reason that there are Dunkin Donuts, or Baskin Robbins shops located in the same shopping center and strategically located near all the gyms. They know their audience, and our weakness. Gotta love capitalism.

Can't seem to stick to a diet
Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don't!

Your home care lady sounds like a hoot!

I give out Fortune Cookies for Halloween. Personally don't care for them, but remember as a kid that I couldn't wait to open them up and find my "fortune".

Does anyone know how to get the pie chart that shows percentages to include Fiber?

My GI and Primary Care Dr's don't care about Carbohydrates or Protein only my fiber consumption. I'm supposed to get 37 daily, but am having a hard time tracking that.

Please let me know. Thanks.
