The difference feels like going from walking on air to jackhammering my body all the way up to my shoulder blades. I want to wear these shoes all the time but will need a solution for that heel. I think I'll go to a specialty running shoe place today and see what they can tell me.

Hello! Here I am with my timely answer!

Whenever that has happened to me, it has been because my toenail was too long and/or my shoes were too tight. Sometimes I can feel it and it feels like the nail is getting lifted off the nailbed. Cuz it catches on the inside of shoe on the downstroke or something? I don't know how to explain it, but I can feel it happening and I know I'm going to have a purple toe.

They were in really bad shape a while ago. The big ones and the ones next to them (my next toe is longer than the big one) kept turning black and then falling off, sometimes the whole nail, and sometimes just one corner or other, like you described. It takes a while for the nail to grow back, weeks to months on the next one, about a year on the big one.

I was tired of having gross feet all the time so I started getting pedicures on the regular. The last time I was in I was scoping out my progress because that's the only time I ever see them because they always have polish on them. The pedicurist saw me looking and was like "yeah, they are healing" then she asked me why they were like that. I shrugged I was like "I run and I hike" and so she offered to go back and cut them shorter. I think that confirms my theory that it's the long toenails that cause it.

$20 pair of socks with something to do with perspiration. Will see if worthwhile.

What noborty told me about losing weight: I can tolerate warmer temperatures. Just last year, an 80 day wold see me uncomforrtable and sweating heavily. And on even hotter and muggier days? I would be completely soaked pits to toes. Though this season has been far more temperate I find 80+ days to merely be a little less comfortable than not.

As further update, my recent convalescence, I thought for sure I had erased a lot of hard work. Turns out, by some miracle, that I hadn't. Maybe only gained a pound or two - despite much less activity and what I thought was higher intake.

As a hard datum portion of this update, my weight is around 190, depending on the day of the week, time of day and scale used.

Yeah, strength and stamina don't go away as quickly as you'd think, and they come back surprisingly quickly as well.

For myself, since about April I have been eating well and mostly abstaining from alcohol. I got out of the habit of running during the summer, but I was working to get 10,000 steps daily so I did a lot of walking.

I super missed running, though, so I've been getting back into it. A couple 2- to 3-mile runs in the past couple weeks and then 5 miles this morning.

I've been attending weight watchers meetings regularly and my weight is at the low end its usual range. I feel great in all my clothes, and that's my favorite part. :biggrin:

I've now lost about 90 pounds since January, and have noted not only that I am more tolerant of heat, I'm less tolerant of cold. I have increased the acceptable temperature in our house and in my truck to 74F, sometimes 75. That is as opposed to my previous preference of 68-70 and compromise with my wife of 72. Also, I don't mind so much working in the yard at 80, 90, and even 100 degrees.

Me too. Not in your clothes, I doubt they'd fit, but in mine instead. I've changed so many sizes since January it isn't even funny. I've lost about 16 inches in my waist, and maybe 6 or 8 in my chest. And I need to go pants shopping right now because everything I have, even the skinny jeans are baggy on me. I couldn't have put off the clothing purchases until now if not for a very generous couple who have both lost a bunch of weight and gave me clothes that fit and some that will soon fit. Just no pants that fit right anymore.

I went to the nearby organic store. I've only been in there three times, like, ever. So, obviously I'm not a regular nor am I known. I paid for my purchase (local honey) and the lady asked to see my ID. I took the opportunity to look at it myself.

Holy carp, y'all.

The difference...

If this is my driver's license photo:

This is me now:

I am impressed.

Not least by discovering that Americuh has animated driver's licence photos.

Skip forward to September and I gained those 4 plus 4 more back. Ugh. I promised that after the summer I would get stuck in to eating better and being more active.

I'm walking average 12,000 steps a day now and today I began eating better. TODAY.

It's only 1pm and I'm :brooding: Would really prefer a bagel with cream cheese to my hummus, veggie, and chicken lunch. I'm so damn hungry. Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

6 months to my wedding. :eek:

I've done something. Something that I'm both pleased with and unhappy about.

As I've said before, my big impetus was to reduce my sugars and carbs. I've been quite successful at that, I'd say. Not perfect of course but still p good.

I've been back at work for a few months now. Though I was pleased I hadn't put on much, if any, weight because of it, I noticed I wasn't dropping the weight like I wanted to. I'd go down through the week and back up a bit on the weekend. It was expected considering I'm a bit more regimented during the week - on a schedule at work and all. I can't just up and eat whatever, whenever when I'm supposed to be toeing that line and toting that bale.

But even so, I'd plateaued. I figured it was time to take a much closer look at what I was doing, diet-wise, and see what's what. I had also been feeling p good about the foods I was eating as my bloodwork came back with all positives across the board.

I decided to look at actual calories.

Much to my dismay. Guys, I was really saddened at my discovery.

I realized I had to give up my low carb and multi purpose tortillas. They were the highest calorie single item in my diet. (Except for the binge on peanut butter. But, come on. Who can eat just one tablespoon? And nevermind my "little" treat of peanutbutter on the tortilla.)

That was a couple of weeks ago now. Again, I'm not perfect so I've had a couple since my self imposed moratorium. But I've also resumed a gradual and steady drop in pounds.

Today at the work scale it read ~185.

I think part of my issue over the late summer was I had accidentally started eating at a maintenance level. Which I'm not ready for yet.

As far as my health goes, my psychological/emotional/mental goal is to lose enough so that my blood pressure reads normal. I'm not shooting for a goal weight or anything. Not yet. I do find myself saying that if I reach #NNN, that'd be a good holding point. But as my actual weight goes down and my body feels better while it's happening, that "goal" number gets a little lower.

Last year, I think I remember thinking: 185 is a good number. I get that far, and I'll be good. Lower than that would be, in a parlance, a stretch goal. Nice if it happens, but I'm not going to push at it.

Now that I'm passing that, I'm thinking 165 would be nice if it happens. 175 feels realistic and anything more would be - what is word - not worth the effort? Something like that, but not that mean spirited.

But guys. Seriously, guys? I'm bummed about my tortillas.
