**Accountability Buddies**: Lose 20lbs by April 5

goyologogoyologo Posts: 50Member Member Posts: 50Member Member
Welcome all!

This thread is an extension of our earlier challenge "Lose 20lbs by Dec 1 Accountability Buddies." Some of us made the 20 lb goal (congratulations!) but several of us still have a way to go, so we are starting this "**Accountability Buddies**: Lose 20lbs by April 5" group. I have found this group enormously helpful to keep me on-task toward slowly (ah, yes, verrrrrry sloooooowly) but surely meeting my weight loss goal.

This is a "no frills" challenge. You are of course welcome to include in your postings whatever thoughts and comments are helpful to you, and to give likes, hugs, and supportive comments to others' posts, but the key thing that this challenge involves is to ** show up once a week and post your weight**. That is all. :)

Here's how to continue participation for the remaining weeks of the challenge:

First, from inside the thread, hit the "star" at the upper right of the page. This will keep this thread as a favorite, and yours/others' most recent responses to the thread will show up in your account community section on the "bell" at the upper right. You can click on the most recent response in the bell list to go back to this thread to read the most recent responses to it and/or add a new response of your own.

Second, to add a new post, updated to show your new weight for the week, click the "community" page, click "search". At the lower left, to the left of the green "search" icon, click the downward arrow at the right of the "Search" window. That will open up a set of new windows beneath the "search window", called "Title", "Author", "Category", etc. In the Author window, type your username. Scroll down with the arrow at right in Category window, choose "Challenges." At the very bottom, at "Date within:" I always choose "2 weeks" and to the right I type "today". Click the "search" button. This should bring up list of your posts within the last two weeks.

Click the post where you reported your last weight to our group. Select text and copy it using "edit" in upper left bar of your browser. Now scroll down to the bottom of the page. In the "Reply" window, paste the text. Within the reply window, edit the text to add your new weight and any comments you wish to make. Hit "Post Reply."

    Alright I’m gonna try this again....I think the easy pounds are in the rear view mirror, but another 20# should put me just under the “overweight” category according to the charts. I don’t think my weight started with a 1 since the year started with a 1 if that gives you any idea how long it’s been. Wish me luck!

    Hi CurvaciousK, I just joined the group yesterday. We're getting a head start on all those New Years' resolution folks. Let's try to not gain (much) the next few weeks. Be good to yourself, and try to treat yourself with non-food rewards. I just bought a new pair of walking shoes, and they only subtract cals- important this time of year! :p
