    M- 80 ounces
    T- 84 ounces

    WORKOUT

    60 minutes of cardio. 8,815 steps as of now. Ten minutes on ab machines.

    I did not have enriched flour today. Victory! Keep my carbs under 100, which is my goal.

    Workout and water challenge met.

    Still have not given up a food item or category. :( Small changes.

    I was not going to workout today, but bc of this challenge I forced myself to move.

    Anyone having a tough time, you got this. Small changes add up!

    Yes I'm having a little problem. I really want to try keto... I love so many foods on it and wouldn't feel restricted but I'm having an issue getting started...ugh

    Hi everyone. My name is Genevieve and I am excited to be part of this group. I am really trying to be more involved on here. I have been on MFP for years but never really made it work. I want to get to my goal weight, but mostly I want to be healthy and proud of myself. I have two daughters, a 2 year old and a 2 month old. I have struggled with body image all my life, but I want to be a good role-model for my girls and show them that their mom is healthy and loves her body at any size. I want them to grow up knowing that eating healthy is important and good for them, and that physical activity is fun and also good for them. I feel like this is the start of something this time, I can do this even if it means making a few more healthier choices over time. The hard part for me is not beating myself up when I feel I’ve made a poor food choice and getting into a depression about it, so I will really be working at that. Sorry this was so long, hope everyone is having a good week!

    Met yesterday’s water challenge.
    Did Hiit workout with weights but not 30 min 😕because I’m just getting back to weights and I didn’t want to overdo it.

    Going to have to motivate myself tonight for that 30 min of Cardio!

    Hi! My name is Christina. I’m a 32 year old married mom of 2 girls, ages 12 and 6. I want to join this group for motivation and accountability. I always fail when it comes to diets and my health but 2019 is my year! I’m determined to do better. I’m tired of being disgusted when I look in the mirror. I’m tired of clothes not fitting. I’m tired of being tired and not playing with my kids. I’m just tired of all that comes with being my size. I’m focusing on moving more and making better food choices, not just a strict diet of salads and misery. I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been and I want to lose 70-80lbs by my 33rd birthday next January. My long term goal is to weigh around 150-160. Feel free to send friend requests and we can help keep each other accountable. I look forward to chatting with everyone and losing this weight!

    Workout water challenge met yesterday!!!

  • CowgirlConnieMayCowgirlConnieMay Posts: 280Member Member Posts: 280Member Member
    Still exercising everyday... today was iffy on some food but kept it under calories so I would give the day a B- since I didn't meet water goal either.

    Yesterday I met and went above the water challenge. I did good with my calories but, completely sucked at the workout! Ugh. I fell asleep on the couch and when I woke up there was no getting my mind there.
    Today water was only about 40oz
    Workout: cardio 30 min
    Feeling good!

    I do so good during the day. I really don’t crave anything bad and it’s fairly easy to stick to healthy foods. But at night, particularly the 1-2 hours before I go to sleep are awful! I want to eat everything in my house! I am struggling so bad with this. Does anyone have any tips on dealing with this? I bought some sugar free ice cream bars so I have something I can grab that won’t ruin my day entirely, but I’m really trying to stay away from artificial sweeteners as much as possible.

    I started saving calories for end of day after dinner snacking. Like 200 calories or so. I look forward to having something that I actually like without guilt. Sometimes its a healthy choice and sometimes it is ice cream.

    Low calorie sweet treats: I love jello with whip cream for low calorie snack. Strawberries fresh and yummy with whip cream.

    Sugar free, fat free pudding, dark chocolate mini pieces...i put them in the freezer. When I tried Atkins years ago there was a dessert recipe of ricotta cheese and cocoa powder. I added coconut extract. If you're trying to stay away from artificial sweeteners, maybe add a touch of honey or agave nectar? I too get sweet cravings late at night.

    Hi everyone. I have not much to report on my end. Trying to enjoy my time with my son and his wife while they are visiting. Currently at the gym, surprisingly 😀

    Think we can do the same challenge for this week. If any one wants to see a certain challenge done just let me know

    Take care all

    I’ve been kind of MIA this week. It has not been a great week for me. I unexpectedly got called in for a job interview on Friday (I had applied for this job ages ago and forgotten about it) and stress ate on Thursday and Friday. I stuck with my workouts but felt like I was really sluggish, not giving it my all. I’m not supposed to hear back from the interview for at least another week so I really need to get my butt back in gear, I can’t let the stress throw me off until I hear back!

    Omg, you have been such a go getter this whole time. Dont let it stop you. On the other hand I understand the stress eating. Have you ever tried intermittent fasting to get you back on track. That help me or a really good workout. ❤

    Hey all!
    This week I drank water, got in my steps every day but yesterday my rest day, and worked out 45 minutes or more strength except for yesterday. I logged daily except for yesterday. Just wasn't feeling like doing anything yesterday, haha!
    My main struggle is thinking about food a lot, even when I don't overeat. I just don't want to constantly think about food!! Distraction is my best tool, I read a lot and spend time with friends, family, etc.
    I'm excited because my weight dropped this week, too.
    @echoroyal79 that is great about time with family!
    @Running2Fit you can do this! We are all just human, I get upset about having bad days sometimes but it's funny because in the grand scheme its maybe slowed down my progres by 1 or 2 pounds, so pretty darn miniscule.

    Hi all 2 weeks in. I have lost 16 pounds, been sick this last week with stomach flu, so that helped the loss. Recouped 4 pounds in the last 2 days as i rehydrated and ate again.

    I'm having some cravings, but not all the time. Especially all the family is eating quite more healthy than before and that's something that we all needed.

    Amazingly enough even though I still have 55 pounds to go I already notice the difference in how I feel, not so much in how I look.

    Now is when I need to be strong again as it's the typical moment where I flip and start thinking I'm all slim and built and eat again which is quite the opposite.

    I have to say I'm in love with Spinning, clearly I found this sport amazing. Doing it in my house with my peloton bike.

    This week I'm going to try to track my steps to walk 5500 per day ( today I do 2500-3000 ) on average and also start with a bit of weights.

    Again this demonstrates that if you are a bit constant results come.

    Happy but scared to death to fail again...

    Love u all.
