Its the break time on the 2020 Fall 5% Challenge. At the start of 2020 I wanted to be at 145 to 150 at this time of the year.

Well COVID happened, I lost my job (well it's changed so much in that I am not able to be in the classroom with the kids (this year 1st graders as a foster grandmother, much like an assistance to the teacher) so I've gotten an old job back (need the income for a new car a friend and i are sharing it's YELLOW!! WOOHOO) working at a grocery store. Keep in mind the picture to the left at 288 I was severely depressed mostly in a power chair. So I've come a LONGGG WAYS AWAY FROM THAT!! I can now bag groceries quite fast , and cashering as I learn more codes, etc, my speed has picked up there also. Oh I could of gotten any other type of job, but I thrive in a very busy atmosphere and it IS BUSY!!

So I've not lost the weight I wanted, but yet I am able to do WAY MORE THAN I EVER THOUGHT I'd be able to so I am GOOD AT THAT!!

Stay in my calorie range using SPARKS guidelines, which I've reset.

Remembering my weight may go up for a few days, but it'll go back down again. NO NEED to throw a spoon into ice cream!

Personal Information:
My reasons for losing weight
I have SIBO (Small intesines bacteria overgrowth) which has me so tired more so in the AM. The better I take care of myself,, the better I'll feel.
