Off to a good re-start!

 Please share your journey plan and goals below.

Even though I've been on my journey for close to 10 years, it's still hard to put myself out there but feel I need to to really stay accountable. I decided to weigh in every Sunday.
I weighed in August 1st after 4 weeks traveling stateside. Where I knowingly ate anything. Horrible choices and insane quantity. Haven't done it in a while because I knew the consequences. You can see the 12 lb game from my last weigh-in. 😔
Goal... Every two weeks shooting for 5 lb lost. Until I get closer to 200. I know we shouldn't do so much so fast. When I lost 100 lb, I would lose one a month and celebrate like crazy once I got to One-derland. It was awesome to keep it off for 5 to 6 years. But I haven't weighed what I weigh now since 2013 after losing around 60 lb. (In 2011 after baby number four I was close to 300 lb). Fat and happy. 🤣
Plan... ("Water S.E.E.D.S." to grow healthy.)
Water, drink half my weight in ounces per day.
Sleep, try to get seven to eight solid hours
Eat, Just eat real food. Realistic portions. Three well spaced out meals, limit snacking especially after dinner.
Exercise, minimum 3 days of decent activity, workout, walking
Destress, no more anxiety, stress, letting things bother me. Do what I can in the moment and say no and relax
Support, get back to measuring, monthly pictures and inches, and posting. This helps me stay accountable and connect with others who are succeeding to encourage me or others who are struggling and can relate and share what's working.
So after the first week, looks like it's working. In my Wii fit I'm making 2-week holes of only losing 5 lb and keeping it off.
