RE: Eat, Play, Write
hannah77, thank you for your post. Very helpful and reassuring. And you're probably right about my real TDEE - it may actually be higher than 2030 when I get back to my normal activity level post move. Anyway...

I'm going to be a little less rigid and aim for 1800-2000. I'm also sticking the scale back in a box this afternoon. big grin My weight is down a little more this morning (although my moving average is up), so I'm feeling a bit better about it all. I'll probably keep tracking what I eat, but may try to let go of that as well when we hit the road. It's such a habit, I don't know if I can!

OK, back to organizing!

Starting weight in Nov. - ~145
Ave 2052 - 1-10 to 1-30 average 148.9
Ave 2011 -- 1-31 to 2-10 average 149.8
Ave 2163 -- 2-12 to 2-18 average 150.5
Ave 2225 -- 2-19 to 2-24 average 151.6
Ave 2308 -- 2-25 to 3-4 average 153.2
Ave 2090 -- 3-5 to 3-10 average 154.4
Ave 2074 -- 3-11 to 3-16 average 154.7
Ave 2116 -- 3-17 to 3-22 average 154.6
Ave 2098 -- 3-23 to 3-29 average 155.9
Ave 2068 -- 3-30 to 4-7 average 155.2
Scale Break! 4-8 to 4-14
Weigh in 4-15 - 157.8!!!!
4-16 -- 157.2
4-17 -- 157.2
4-18 -- 157.2

RE: Eat, Play, Write
Finally - I'm down a tad. Not that I'm watching. :-) But DH still needs the scale, so I'm using it, too. I'm headed out for a nice, long walk on the beach this morning - access to the beach is one thing I'll miss about living here, but I am looking forward to the variety of landscapes to explore in Oregon.

I am having a bit more trouble than normal hitting macros as we try to use up food - I've been heavier on carbs (~50) and lower on protein (~20%). I can't worry too much about that until after the move, but I am aware. That counts, right? :-)

Starting weight in Nov. - ~145
Calorie range 1/10-4/7 = 2011-2308
Average weights 1/10-4/7 = 148.9-155.9

Don't get hung up on not being perfect with calories or macros for now. Be aware, but do t freak out. Once you settle down in the new place, things will get into a new routine and it will be easier. How about a chill phase for now? Relax, enjoy and practice self love!

RE: Eat, Play, Write
I weighed in this morning - 156 - and then packed the scale, so that's in until sometime in May. Now I'm off to buy a new cooler so I can pack some healthy snacks for the trip! Then a walk, then a PILE of laundry as the W&D are sold and being picked up tomorrow morning. Wheee!

RE: Eat, Play, Write
Hi all! Just popping in for a minute. We moved out of our house on Monday, expected to ship car Mon or Tues but that has been delayed until (hopefully!) tomorrow, so we're still hanging out in Wilmington, NC. I'm doing reasonably well with my eating, in spite of eating out, and I've gotten a surprising amount of exercise, so all good.

As for the scale...Tereza, I had it packed, and then decided it added much too much weight to the box (how ironic is that?) so - ta da! - I dropped the sucker off at Goodwill! OK, I'll probably get another eventually, but for now I'm scale free. :-)

Average weight 4/15 - 4/21 = 156.8
4/22 - ??? moving, no scale!

applause Woohoo!!! Yes, Sheila! Goodwill is the best place for it! Don't rush into getting another one! Just worry about moving and getting yourself settled in the new place.

RE: Eat, Play, Write
Today makes one week without the scale, and I can't say I miss it much. I am curious, of course, but not worried. We've been stuck here 5 days longer than expected (but the truck is finally picking up our second car tomorrow!), and that's been stressful, but it could be worse. I've been eating reasonably well, although a bit less than usual. I'm eating until I'm satisfied, but am averaging about 1650/day. which is about a 10% cut. Macros aren't ok, not great - protein about 20%, carbs about 50%, fat about 30%. I think that's all okay for now, since it's what my body seems to be asking for. I have gotten a walk in every day, so that's a big plus on the stress front. Onward!
