    Weekly Weigh-In
    SW: 190
    Challenge Goal: 138
    Ultimate Goal: 120 (maybe 115...I’m having trouble deciding!)

    Jan 07 - 146.2

    I woke up with a massive headache this morning so I’m currently drinking tons of water so hopefully it goes away before I go run. Plan for the day is a 2 mile run followed by JM 30 Day Shred. This is my first day doing a run and 30 DS, I hope it isn’t too killer!

    Starting weight- 209lbs
    Current weight- 163lbs
    Goal weight- 147lbs

    I lost weight by calorie counting alone no exercise starting in January 2018 I’ve been maintaining for the past 4-5 months but I’m ready to get my *kitten* back in gear and loose the rest I need too.

    POA- Be strict with my calorie intake and incorporate some kind of exercise routine in too.

    Please give me tips and motivation to loose the last lbs I need too x

    I would love to join!
    SW- 180 (2018)
    CW-175
    GW- 145

    Goal plan: increase exercise, maintain or exceed 10k steps a day. I live on the Canadian prairies, so I find it hard to get outside and exercise more during the winter months. Also find it hard with the dark cold evenings to even find the motivation to exercise. However I have equipped myself with cross country skis and snowshoes and plan on doing more outside activities this winter 😬

    Plan: incorporate more strength training in the gym and back off too much cardio. Limit eating after dinner, and stick to calorie goal for the first time in ages (with the odd beer at weekends)

    I'll be tracking what I eat and stay within my calorie goal and make sure to work out at least 30 minutes a day 5x a week. I'll also be reading "Lose it for Life" to help me gain self control over my eating habits. Super excited and eager to see results.

    Hi guys! So this is a challenge where you post here once a week--or more if you like. There is no FB page or group or anything like that.

    Welcome @ksales507 , I have eaten dessert twice already this month - baked cheesecake on Saturday evening (but I did about 30+ mins of disco dancing during the evening) - and more cheesecake at my mum's for Sunday lunch. Just plan ahead, and if possible check the calories beforehand. (my mum still had the box but I didn't check until after I had had two (small) portions! I did extra exercise on Saturday and Monday.
    I shall be having cake next month as it is my mum's 90th birthday and we are arranging a party. My daughter has volunteered to make cake!

    I work on the principle that I can eat whatever I want but try to have small portions and log everything. You will learn what is worth "spending" calories on. Personally I avoid alcohol and sweet drinks - not worth the calories. But cake is worth it.
