    Back into work we go, ho hum... Had a letter from My consultant which says I have damage to medial meniscus of my left knee with a possible tear, also the leg alignment is off so it bows outwards putting extra strain on the joint... nothing to do but work around it and hope they can get me fixed up in some way or another.
    Always happy to have extra friends to chat to on this journey, right now think I could do with them..

    Hope it heals soon!

    I am 40 and turning 41 this year in June. I got serious about my fitness just over a year ago and wanted to be fit (under 10% body fat) by the time I turned 40.

    I had a great start. I went from 25% body fat to 18% body fat by January 31 in just 5 months. Then Covid, bought a new house and moved, and now starting this year at 24% body fat.

    So now the goal is to get to around 9% body fat by the time I turn 41. To accomplish this in a short amount of time, I realize I needed to really focus on my nutrition and work outs. This app has really allowed me to make sure I am making the progress needed.

    Please feel to add me as a friend and I plan to post monthly progress to keep me accountable.

    Down 3lbs since Jan 1. Wish it was going faster, but I'll take it! And unseasonably warm here, so the morning run felt great. Amazing how peaceful a quiet morning can be.

    Well the weekend has started here, shift work so any day off is a weekend as far as I am concerned. X-rays this morning, painkillers after and now got to chill for a few hours to let it calm down. I am pleased with what I have managed so far this year and looking forwards to it continuing.

    Sounds like you're doing great Craig, hope the painkillers will kick in soon for you!

    WFH today and tomorrow, I'm just off a 3 hour con call and rest of the day shouldn't be too bad. Hoping to get a nice walk in later as we actually have blue skies here today. We haven't seen them in quite a while.

    Happy Friday! (It's Friday, right? Yes. Yes I'm pretty sure it is.)
    I hope everyone has had a great week!

    3lbs in 2 weeks is fantastic! Congrats!

    I quit, I return, I quit, I return... Blah blah blah blah... Maybe lucky account #5,019 is the time it sticks? Who knows! Anyway, if you want someone new to BS with, add me. Unless I burned some bridge unfriending you 5,018 times in the past...

    Be well you little rascals.

    I’m 48 and loving this app and the focus it gives me. I am getting into the best shape and healthiest I have ever been in my life. So great to be able to track each day and stay focussed. I love exercising everyday now and have formed a habit that it is just part of my day. I have lost 4kg since the 10th December 2020 and aiming to lose another 4 or so. I am aiming for getting down to no more than 20%body fat. Currently at 24%. Looking for motivation buddies so please feel free to add me.

    Amazing morning walk! Was cold, but not freezing, and little ice on the roads. And I turned off the news about 15 minutes in and just let my mind wander with music. Definitely a great start to the day.

    Another year gone by, 54 now, body is ever so slightly knackered but still going to keep on pushing. Got a wardrobe full of clothes I cannot get into and that has to change this year, by the next one I will be in them.

    Morning everyone!

    I’m having a “self hate spiral” kind of day. I’m super close to that 50lbs mark and I made the mistake of thinking “hey let’s find a before photo for comparison”. Turns out I was way fatter than I remembered and what I look like now is what I have in my head as what I looked like 50lbs ago so... feeling like I’ve done all this work and gotten no where. What’s the phrase? Can’t polish a turd? Yup. Feeling like the turd.

    Best practices for getting out of self hate spirals and not letting them derail you welcome. I’m
    gonna go for a walk on a foggy trail and try to shake it off.

    I hope everyone else is having a great day! ❤️
