    First time on London public transport since lockdown...eerily quiet at 6am!

    #MorningByTheWay 🙂

    Eerie is the word for an underground tunnel, quiet. I've only seen empty subways when there were bomb scares in Boston. It felt uncomfortable, but I had to go to work.

    I've been away from cities with subways for a few years now... was just wondering yesterday what NYC, Chicago & Boston's are like since Covid.

    Have a good weekend.

    42 with a 3 year old.
    Decided a lifestyle change was necessary if I was going to see him graduate high school.
    Middle of Aug I made a decision to alter my diet and get moving again. The week of Halloween I joined a gym and started using this app.

    By thanksgiving I lost 45 lbs. since went down another 5 but fluctuate between the 45-50 lbs.
    today I squatted my body weight 6x and managed to DL my bw once.

    Not a bad day

    That's a fantastic day!!! great work!!!

    Happy Wednesday all!

    I hit the 45lb mark today, and am officially now just "overweight" and not "obese". While happy I’m also like “but wait - I’m only half way, ugh”. I'm running out of steam. Lol. I need to figure out a small prize to encourage myself with to hit that 50lb mark by the end of the year. I got myself a ring for my 50% of the way there victory at 42lbs. It’s a lovely blue ring. I’m a little obsessed. Maybe my love of rings is talking here, but I’m thinking the 50lb mark deserves celebrating too!

    Anyone working towards fun prizes for various milestones?

    That's fantastic! Don't lose steam! Re-commit yourself! You've come so far!

    Here's something to do:
    Even if you already have a list of reasons why you want to lose weight, make a new list. Pick your Top 3 or Top 10. Then post it on your bathroom mirror or above your kitchen sink. Somewhere where you can see it every day.

    And... for 50lbs - that DEFINITELY deserves acknowledgement and a celebration. Maybe a mani/pedi? Or a massage? Even one of those mini back massages at the mall (if you don't want to spend a lot of money).

    Or mark the event with a 5k walk (with a friend or your favorite podcast to accompany you).

    Best wishes!
    Feel free to add me as a friend.

    It was freezing with horrific winds all day & since I'm on vacation, I can happily do what I want. I watched old movies, drank lots of espresso, stared at the ocean through the window all day, watching the few brave souls who walked, clad in parkas like mimes trudging through a wind tunnel & couldn't be happier to have done nothing but empty my mind.

    Tomorrow, the same, but with one last long walk on the beach since it's my last day here.

    I could pack tonight, but it makes me sad cuz it's a sign that vacation's over. Nope... no packing 'til tomorrow evening, late.

    Happy Sunday, All!

    Good morning. I am in the same boat. I had lost 80 lbs until COVID struck and has struggled during COVID by gaining 20 lbs back. Now I’m looking to bounce back

    I have done pretty much the same thing. Too much food around when working from home. And not as much walking either.

    Amen to this. My fitbit hates me...and now that it's getting to be winter, I don't even want to walk outside

    I need to get back at it. I have fallen off all year (have been blaming the virus) but this lies squarely with me. Feel free to add me and let's get back at it!!

    Not a bad day so far. Came to work late cause I was breaking in my new home smith/cable machine. Definitely not the same as the gym but definitely a great substitute for the forecasted shutdown in NY.

    Hope everyone’s day is extra humpy.
