    Hi Team Flab-U-Less,
    I am excited to join your team and this challenge. I'm 52 and about 3 years ago the weight started creeping up due to Perimenopause. Then last year my life was turned upside down with my only child going off to college, I was excited to go back to work from being a stay at home mom. Well long story short both of my parents developed Dementia (one over night, I know that is not possible so after 8 weeks in the hospital we figured it out) and I found myself having to manage their house, finances and health. Full time job. Lucky for me I have a very supportive husband of 23 years. However I stoped taking care of myself. Now that I have a plan for my parents, I need to get my life back. My ultimate goal is to loose the 30 pounds I have gained over the last 3 years. And then keep it off.

    Welcome to newbies! I'm an oldie - 75 years old - the grandmother of the group. I think young and am a part time professional speaker and humorist. I'm married, have 1 daughter, 2 stepsons and 5 grandchildren and a cat.

    I started TBL competition December 2017 and took a break last month. Put our house on the market and my focus just wasn't with the program! I'm baaaacccckk!

    Good luck to us all and thanks, Melinda, for all you do as our Captain! <3

    My weigh in day will be Friday.

    Hello Everyone, I joined MFP in September and October was my first challenge month. I'm 56 years old and single, I joined because its not always easy trying to lose weight by yourself,. Overall, did pretty good on my weight- loss for my first challenge, and I did surpass my goal of 273 lbs. Look forward to November's challenge and getting to know both newbies and returning challengers. Wishing everyone the best on reaching their November goals.

    My Weigh-In day is Saturday!! 😃💕❤️🌹

    Hi Teammates!

    I'm a 5th grade ELA teacher in Washington State. October was not a good month for me. I ended up gaining 2 pounds and I’m now back at 220. So, I'm hoping to tighten up on my exercise and tracking routine this month.

    My goal for November is to get to the gym at least 4 times a week, drink at least 64 ounces of water daily, and get to 215 or less.

    @Starshine15 Ashley hasn't added you back to the challenge yet because she still doesn't have a start weight for you. She needs it by the next day before we are too far into the challenge. Thanks!

    Week 1
    Previous weight : 141.1
    Current weight : 141.7

    I seriously don’t know what’s wrong! I weighed 140.2 this Saturday and today I weighed myself and saw 141.7 on scale and I am really disappointed 😞
