    Weigh in week: Week 1
    Weigh in day: Sunday
    Previous Weight: 174.2
    Current Weight: 176


    Have over indulged way too much over the Christmas period, so need to get refocused again!

    1. From tomorrow, I am back on no added sugar as this was the healthiest balanced diet for me which also cut out my migraines! (You would be surprised about what foods have sugar/sweeteners added!) Not looking forward to the withdrawal headaches, but after a few days I know it will pass.

    2. Exercise has not been possible for the past few months after my knee injury, but I am now much more mobile and I start physio exercise classes this week...so hoping to gradually be able to up the intensity and get back to netball in the next couple of months!

    @sarahann104 It's extremely important to have a routine and set aside time to take action to reach your goals, glad to see you taking action!! I think I might take a look at that book myself. Thanks for sharing.

    @gemwolf110 That's a great resolution!! I have the same goal for myself!!

    @danzibob2016 You will get back in to the swing of things. Setbacks happen, but it's what you do next that matters!! You got this!

    @gjaholy33 That sounds like a great day, glad you got to spend day with loved ones!!

    Hi there everyone, I literally just joined MyFitnessPal about three hours ago. I am learning the app and decided to join a challenge right away. I am a 44 year old mom of two very busy teenage boys, a wife to a very supportive husband, and a teacher to about 120 middle school kids!! I love my life, but have recently been trying to take better care of myself. After a pretty serious health scare last year and major surgery, I started to go to aquafit (which Is love!!). This app seems to have the accountability and support that I need! So glad to be here!!

    My resolutions for 2018 are to be more cognizant and accountable in my food choices. I think this app will be a great resource!

    Happy New Year! I'm running a little late - just got back from visiting family and am ready to get back to the non-holiday schedule. Today was all about the airport, so not a great start! I am focused on getting back to my regular 3x week weight training and then I want to add in some more movement oriented exercise.

    @JJKM02 Welcome to MFP and Welcome to the Slimsons!! I think you will find that spending a little time entering things into MFP and spending a little time here will really help you reach your overall goals!!

    @Calli1616 Welcome to the team!! Hope you get settled back into your routine super fast!!

    @IanMoone30 Great start to the month!! Keep it up!

    Hi all, new members and old. I had been planning to have Jan as a maintainace month. But after taking the last week and a bit off, I feel reinvigorated towards hitting my goals. My original plan of hitting 220 by March is not looking realistic anymore... So my new goal is to his onederland by the middle of the year or earlier.

    Funny thing.. I had no idea December had a week 5 lol.. So after week 4 I just went on holiday from the challenge. If it weren't for a message from @AB0215 I probably wouldn't have been back till Feb.

    So yeah, I'm in for Jan, determined to get past the 123Kg plateau I've been stuck on for some weeks. And I hope everyone has a great year. I will be in a remote outback area much of the time, so I don't expect I will be able to daily post very often. But I'll keep logging and stay in touch whenever I can.

    Daily Post:(Monday) I hate summer heat. Seriously, I just need to find a way to move to the snow for half the year.

    So funny thing....January also has 5 weeks... ;)

    Glad you feel reinvigorated and glad to see you're back!! The thing that's good for plateaus is change, and it can be simple, different food, different exercise--maybe try a different workout? That usually helps me. Good luck, I know you can get past it, but it is super frustrating!!

    Hi Team Slimsons! I'm excited to join for this month. I do have some questions (@craigo3154), so hopefully y'all can help me with those too!

    My goal for January is 10 pounds. I don't want to be unrealistic, considering I'm a 42 year old female, and losing weight may be difficult. But my weight today was 202.4 pounds. I think that going back to exercising and tracking my food will make a huge difference.

    Can someone walk me through how this works? I heard there were spreadsheets, etc. - but searching through all these messages in the thread isn't getting me an answer.

    My motivation is to go back to obstacle course racing and start running again. I think I can do it this time and you guys will be here to help me! I want to be fit in my 40s - not fat. I don't know where I lost the determination, but I have it back, big time.

    Also, I want to do everything I can to make a last-ditch effort at fertility treatment. Losing weight is the only way to do that.

    Thanks all! I appreciate the help.

    Hi everyone! My name is Lisa. I had done a Biggest Loser challenge group before, but this one looks different. Is this only for the month of January and not the longer challenge? I'm just feeling a little lost. Anyways, I I entered my starting weight when I signed up. It is my understanding that this challenge officially starts on the 2nd? So when is our weigh in day? I normally weigh in Mondays. My goal for January is to lose 8 lbs. My starting weight when I signed up was 170.6 (I think) I was 171 today, so my goal is to be 163 last day of January.

    Hi Slimsons! Ready to take on January! Question..... will my current weight be the weight I entered for last week? And then I just give my next weight on Thursday, my usual weigh in day? Or do I have to do another weight for January?
