    I’d like to lose 2-4 pounds this month.. and take another 1-2 cm off my waist. My NSV in Feb were continuing to eat healthy despite having some health challenges. This kind of thing would usually get me down mentally, but I have managed to regulate myself very well.

    March 1 --- the season WILL turn (if only astronomically speaking on March 21 LOL) What's your month-long interim goal? How have been your (mostly Non-Scale) Victories in February? I wouldn't mind hearing scale victory shout-outs tooo - but think OTHER success markers as well.

    My non scale victories were that I continued my dry January into February because I decided wine just does not appeal to me anymore (which makes me emotionally sad, because I have a lot of ritual built into my glass of wine while making dinner routine).

    I competed in my first jiu-jitsu tournament and took second place. Then I was promoted to blue belt. Since the beginning of the month, I've been attending 1-2 more classes each week, including an advanced class once a week. (I am not "advanced" just the poorly chosen word for a class that focuses on techniques not considered foundamental.) I'm trying really hard to reimagine myself as an athlete and a badass and not a 36 year old PTA mom.

    Picture of me at my promotion with my professor.

    Hi there,
    My weigh day is on Wednesday.
    I’ve been struggling with my weight and body image for a very long time. I’m a working single mum to two children and struggle to make time to look after myself. I’m very unfit and overweight.
    I’m starting off by tracking my food, reducing how much wine I drink and walking more.
    It’s great to be here and meet you all 😊

    I was exactly the same when I started. My husband and I love good food and a good bottle of wine. As a mother of two, I had to learn to refocus on myself. I started by tracking everything I ate, increasing my water intake (which was non-existent) and moving more (parking farther from the entrance to work, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, that sort of thing). You've found a great group of people here. Come back often. You'll not only get encouragement but tips and insights on how to navigate through this weight loss journey.

    No weight change this week but my clothes are fitting much better. A few more pounds off and I'll be moving to the next size down. Ready for March. Bring it on!

    Happy Dance! Happy Dance!

    Mark me down for Green Challenge at 3 pounds (I am practically at maintenance and nearly the bottom of 1200/day - so "not-all-exercise-calories-being-eaten-back" will make the difference between ~2 lbs and a bit more )

    So I will be targeting 135.x (maybe even upper half of 134.X)

    I would like to join the daily step challenge as I have been doing lots of steps lately and this will be a great incentive

    I will make sure you are switched in, as I am switching out .... have to spend extra time working on prep for a Second Language Re-qualification exam

    This is the plate of scones .... only one left now .... or was before I left for work, and I'm expecting it too will have "evaporated" by the time I get home ....

    Thank you @mari_moulin. It would be great if I could that this month. Hoping the wether turns better to go walking more often.

    Food Friday - (It’s a bit of a stretch, but it works) This past month I have chosen healthier foods and have eaten less food (guess my stomach has shrunk.) I have done better at making good choices, even when I have eaten out. Just now, I took my measurements. It’s been a month. I have lost 13 1/4 inches from all over. Yay yay!!!
