I am discouraged because of the weight gain, but am hopeful that i can find more comfort in the healthier options. Too much isolation and boredom. lack of motivation. Thanks again. Now that I can post again I hope to gain the inspiration that I lost while I was without being able to see my on line friends. Hope you are doing well. Rebia


Hi Rebia!!! :D :) :-D

I Love Dogs too!!! :-D

Love your thread here... can so relate to how simple that you were eating ... :D

I bet that you can find more comfort in healthier options. I totally understand what you are saying about "too much isolation and boredom"... I gained 23 pandemic pounds (and I had a few other ones to lose as well)... Have lost them now. It took some time... (but I didn't gain them in a day either... :lol: )

You can check out https://www.drmcdougall.com/articles/st ... h-teselle/ --- Elizabeth gained some COVID lbs. too and she kicked them to the curb... See addendum to her Star McD story - pretty inspriring.

Anyway, wishing you the best!!! You can do this. Are you in Saskatchewan??? I am in US - around Chicago, IL (so know the cold but not the cold that you may...)...

Cheers,
Stephanie

Hey Rebia!! :)

I Google'd Watseka... Closest I was ever by there I guess was Champaign / Urbana... :) Saskatchewan looks awesome (though chilly)...

Summers help my mood too!!! 100%...

Anyway, wanted to say "hi" and hope that you are doing awesome!!! New puppy sounds fantastic!!!

Best,
Stephanie
