Good morning /afternoon /evening everyone. I woke up at 2 am this morning and couldn't go back to sleep. Mylotting is always a great way to spend time when you can't sleep so that is what I am going to do for a while. I'm getting a little frustrated at not losing anymore weight. I think that even though I haven't gone over my calories, except that one night we cheated, I may be eating too many carbs. I really can't exercise that much right now so I don't need that many carbs. I'm going to lower them some and see how it goes. I can't go too low on carbs because it makes me sick. When I was sitting on my balcony last night, I saw some bats flying around. They don't bother me as they are harmless. They will eat any mosquitoes around which is a good thing. In the evening, around dusk, they will come out. We can see them flying over the trees. Have you seen any bats where you live? Over the weekend, my brother got an email from his Regional Manager stating that the sale of his property is back on and it should close within a month. My brother is so excited as this job has been nothing but horrible and stressful since the day he started working there. He will get a "stay on " bonus equal to 3 months pay when the sale is final.

Yes, we have bats here. I've even had them in my home. Not fond of that. I'm sorry you're not losing any more weight. I hope limiting the carbs helps. That's great your brother will have a nice bonus when the sale goes through.

I know that feeling with the scales refusing to yield anything despite your hard work. It is discouraging..maybe add more water,exercise..and yes, of course watch the carbs. I have not seen a bat for years, which is fine by me. I imagine they are around though..we have every other critter in the world here.

@simone10 I'm so sorry you're feeling frustrated with not losing any weight. I do wish you all the very best in doing so as it's obviously a goal that means a lot to you! I can't say I've ever seen a bat here in Perth though, I feel like once many many years ago I saw one flying but it was hard to tell as it was dark. The wings just reminded me of a bat but I'm not certain. When I was in Sydney though to visit my Nanny, outside my bedroom window I could hear things flying around and making a certain sound I'd never heard before. And in the morning when I told my Nan, she said they were fruit bats. I was SO happy! Even though I could only hear them and sort of see their silhouettes, I was just happy as I'd never been so close to bats before. I'm so glad your brother is happy about that too!
