    Hi I would like to join the group! I am 29 years old and I need to start taking care of myself ( emotionally, physically and mentally). I also hate looking at myself in the mirror :( . I also have two kids ( 13 and 10) and work a full time job. I would like to have friends with similar goals as myself, to live a healthier lifestyle.

    Welcome! Keep finding motivation so you can reach your goal weight. Push yourself and no matter what don't give up! Ask yourself everyday: if I were to give up now how would I feel six months from now?

    I did not do yoga today. I was having stomach issues all day so I mostly just laid on the couch. I don’t feel to bad though since it was a rest day anyway.

    I did stick to my calorie goal 🙂

    I worked out for 60 minutes... loved it!

    I am so horrible at push-ups! I still do them on my knees! One day I will be able to do an actual push-up...maybe lol

    Good luck on your challenge :)

    Forgot to mention to add the plank. Aim for 30s to 1 min.

    I am checking in.....I can feel minor changes in my abs and I miss it if I can't make it to a dance fit or boot camp class. I feel like I'm not yelling at my kids as much and overall happier. But my weight is not really moving on the scale. Looking for non-scale victories...

    I'm switching from honey wheat to whole wheat, increasing water, decreasing salt and sugar and beginning some light physical activity.

    @jumpingjenkins - do you take measurements? I find it to be a helpful, non-scale way to measure progress. I only take them on the first of the month but it seems like some people take them more frequently. Also, I take tons of progress pictures! Pretty much any day I need a boost in motivation I just take a new picture and compare it to old ones.

    I'm just checking in for the day. Today is a rest day and I need it! January burned me out doing workouts every day. My new training plan (Hal Hidgon's novice 10K training plan) schedules in 2 rest days a week and I think that's much more sustainable for me. I feel like my workouts are stronger and more effective when I get those rest days. I also started running outside this week and it's made a huge difference! I knocked 2 full minutes off my average pace on my 3 mile run on Saturday.

    Hi all... I'm finally back in the 150s!! It's been awhile. Still have a good 2 weeks of steady computer stuff but smarter food choices have worked with workouts most days

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Eden and I'm 29 years old. I seem to have problems sticking to healthy eating habits. Every time I think my goal is within reach, I always fall and gain weight again. I have social anxiety, so I don't like being around other people. I even avoid going outside so that I don't have to deal with anyone, which limits outdoor activities. I have two dogs and I feel like I'm guilty for not taking them out as much as I should. Because of everything, I stay home a lot and snack. I could definitely use an accountability buddy or two to get through this. Looking forward to meeting some people here to work on myself. Little steps.

    Weekly Weigh-In
    12/31 - 147.5
    01/07 - 146.2
    01/14 - 145.1
    01/21 - 144.4
    01/28 - 144.0
    02/04 - 141.4

    A really big loss from last week (for me anyway). Pretty sure I just dropped a bunch of water weight I was holding onto during my period. But it’s always nice to see the scale going down :)

    I need to get in a 2.5 mile run today. The weather is awful here but I think I’ll do it outside anyway.

    Weather sucked on my run, wind makes running hard!
  • CowgirlConnieMayCowgirlConnieMay Member Posts: 306 Member Member Posts: 306 Member
    I agree running in the wind is the worst!

    I walked to the gym in my apartment complex and it was closed! I wish they had sent out an email letting us know. I did two YouTube workouts instead.
