    Your Personal Challenge: Exercise 4x a week (I know it's not super specific)
    2/3- yes/upper body

    Just telling myself to DO something is the real challenge. Even though I'm super weak, I don't mind actually doing the exercises, it's just getting my lazy butt up to start.
    I did upper body light lifting today. Really light and easy though b/c I'm extremely out of shape and can't do much now, but I know I'll get stronger as I continue :)
    Did 3 sets of 15 reps of bicep curls with 5lb dumbbells.
    3 sets of 15 reps wide lat pull-down on home gym
    3 sets of 15 reps seated bench press on home gym

    That's all for now but I'm going to add in more later in the day if the kids don't distract me too much :)

    Username: Matthewsfive
    Weigh in day: Saturday
    Starting weight: 259.2 (on Feb2nd)
    Current Weight: 254.6 ( of Feb9th )

    @matthewsfive - this is your new team. i have added you to our spreadsheet.

    I am a little confused as feb 9th will be your week 1 weigh in but we are still only feb 3rd today. Is this your goal weight?

    While we wait for you to clear this up i will be using 259.2 as your starting weight which should have been taken yesterday Feb. 2.

    Thanks! My starting weight is 211. I'll weigh in on Sunday.

    Thank you. I am guessing this is todays weight which would make this your week 1 weigh in....its a bit confusing i know as our sunday weighers are first to weigh in for the entire week but you will get used to it.

    Can you please provide us with your starting weight which is your weight taken on sunday January 27th.

    Week 1 weigh-in:

    Jugar
    119.8

    I know I'm the smallest one on the team, but believe me I did not start there 7 years ago. I think I might move to the support list though - I'm hovering always around the same weight and I think it is OK to stay there. If I ever make it to 115 they way I would like to, fine. But I don't really need to and I feel better the stronger I get.

    Your starting weight was the one you submitted when you signed up, and your weigh-in day is Monday. So tomorrow is your week 1 weigh-in. Then every Monday after that. Your starting weight should be where you were last Monday. All ok?

    I played Pickle ball today for the first time. I love tennis but haven’t played in a while because of an ankle sprain some time back. Pickle ball is a lot of fun and apparently burns some calories. So, yay. Two workouts in two days. I have had protein and veggies with every meal. I am already up to 9 cups of water. My steps are not where I want them yet, but I also don’t get an accurate measure because I use my phone for steps, not a Fitbit.

    Hi all
    Sorry I have been MIA.
    Weighing in today:
    PW: 202
    CW: 199.5
    I know I should be happy with this loss but I'm a little disappointed as in the past I've lost upto 6lb the first week which really gave me a boost! After that I aim for 2lb/week.
    I guess now I'm 36, things slow down a little...
    I'm also kicking myself that I've only managed one workout last week. I hope I get more in this week.
    Knowing myself, I'm quick to give up but I've never been part of a group before so I really hope this keeps me going!
    Personal challenge this week:
    * plank everyday and increase my time.
    * Drink more water.
    * Come up with a realistic excersize programme.
