Back at it for another month!

Welcome to any new comers we have this month and ofcourse welcome back to everyone who does this every month already.

This is an open challenge, everyone can come and go as they please. Post as much or as little as you like. Please be respectful to one another and support each other. We all know this journey can get real hard at times.

This way we can see your progress, and celebrate with you on each loss, and support you with any gain.

Feel free to post about other things too! Should it be an achievement, or a struggle, or even a new recipe you’ve tried. This way we can cheer you on, support you and try new things with you etc.

Ok everyone, as always, let’s smash it :) x
