    Thanks I really appreciate it, need the motivation! :smile:
    Now just a few questions.. Are there going to be actual MFP groups or is that up to the leader? I dont see one for team 13 yet! And is the "goal weight" an ultimate goal weight or just a 4 week goal

    So excited to get this started Team 13!

    I think we may add a couple more to the group to even out, but will know for sure in a bit.

    I will be in boxing the team tonight & will send another post as well. :smiley:

    Do you have access to a PC, because captains will need a PC, Laptop, something to update the charts I will send. Please let me know, one captain just backed up and I need a captain for Team 4. Can you do this. Yes, you will need a PC but the update is only once a week, on friday, so we can have all stats ready for Saturday to start afresh.

    Please let me know :#

    Ok it looks like you need a few guys to jump in. I am super motivated and have a really good outlook understanding that it took me awhile to get here and it will take awhile to reach my goals. I have been tracking my food for a week and I am going to follow the percentages set up by my fitness pal. Getting my food plan in order will be my biggest challenge. If you have any suggestions on how to do this they would be welcome. My exercise schedule is alternating cardio one day and weight training the next. So for this first challenge my target is a 4lb fat loss. If I can help anyone please shout out.

    I want to join too...but what exactly are we going to do? Do we have to do with ins? I don't own a scale

    Your goal for this first 4 challenge is your goal. It could be lbs, inches, to stick with your eating plan, to exercise consistently what ever you want it to be. Just set what you want to accomplish in the next 4 weeks and all these people will help you get there.

    I'd love to be part of this if its not too late! My goal is to lose 25 pounds...and I definitely need support and motivation to do it!

    My biggest problems are late-night eating and/or falling into over-tired/unprepared modes, when I don't plan meals in advance and start to eat poorly. Today was day 1 of a great day, under my calorie goal....if I can only repeat today for 4?weeks I will have made great strides!

    25lbs in one month?? That is over 6lbs a week, hopefully I miss read your post and you want to loose 25 total.

    <3 "4 Weeks Team Challenge"

    This is not a one time '4 weeks challenge', the challenge will go on in cycles of 4 weeks until we reach our goals. And you decide the amount of weight you want to lose weekly or monthly. I have seen all kind of diets where people lose tons of pounds in a short time, like in juicing plans and I have seen others where people enjoy the long road. Whichever fits you, go for it! But we need to be objective and for this, numbers will talk weekly.

    We all know what we have to do in order to lose weight, we just need lots of Motivation and Support from others trying to achieve similar goals. In my case I have to lose at least 30Lbs to feel comfortable again in my own body and also with my BMI ;)

    Some important daily topics:
    Are you following a specific meal plan?
    How many glasses of water are you planning to drink daily?
    How much time are you going to put into your workout?

    For me these are the most important basis to focus in order to accomplish our goals, and tons of motivation!!!

    If anybody wants to join me, please feel free to do it. I had an ok breakfast, but after reading some posts in this great App :) I got so motivated, now I plan to have a great fit day for the rest of this day.
    Remember we start on Saturday, get your refrigerator ready, workout clothes, your notebook and plan ahead. Review your plan first thing every morning, I plan to do it to remind myself why I am doing this, to stay focus on my goal, to be disciplined in this Weightloss Journey.

    Sure let me know who is on my team and we will go! I might need a little guidance on how to format things but this will make me put my money where my mouth is so to speak.
