    SATURDAY WEIGH IN:
    PW: 179.6
    CW: 179.4

    Considering what has been happening, I am shocked!!! I guess it is the extra non exercise “work” I’ve been doing.

    I just helped a friend chop and drag 4 fallen trees and multiple wheel barrows of debris. It doesn’t register as much on Fitbit, but I am WHIPPED!!!

    I’m sure your getting lots of exercise. Glad everyone is well.

    I’m way over calories today but it was worth it. An old friend came to visit and we had a lovey dinner. All healthy except the margarita which pushed me over my calories.

    One day will not ruin all your progress.
    Just like one day did not make you overweight!

    I hope it’s not too late to join this challenge. One week ago I had my second daughter; two babies in two years has absolutely killed my body. I’m breastfeeding which seems to help some with the weight loss, but I am unable to exercise for 5 more weeks.

    SW: 182.4
    Mini Goal: 160-Hopefully by December 2020
    Goal Weight: 140-hopefully by July 2021

    Tuesday weigh in:
    201.6 The same weight as last week. My weight has been going up and down all week so ending on the same number is better than going up I guess.

    So nervous to make my first post! I've been reading some of this thread and I hope by joining I will have something positive to add and some support to receive along the way, as I know it won't be smooth sailing. Generally good health as an adult is starting to break down due to lack of self-care and focus on prioritizing my needs and I find myself staring down prediabetes numbers in my mid-forties. Suddenly my "far-off future self" feels terrifyingly present and way less amorphous than before, so hopefully this will be the motivation I need to keep me going this time long after the pounds come off. And I can't pinpoint why exactly I am reluctant to discuss any of this--even the little wins--with anyone in my IRL circle. Maybe it's the fear of failure, or that sometimes people get weird about weight loss ... But hopefully a weekly check-in with someone besides myself will help me feel accountable and inspired to push through when the going gets rough. Thank you in advance for your hospitality. :)

    Hello, I just joined premium and was wondering if people are still using this chat. I would love some motivational buddies to check in with.

    I have 90+ pounds to lose and am also the heaviest I have ever been. Before Covid I was actually going to the gym, doing yoga daily and making some small progress. I really need some motivating friends to help me get back to my goals. Once Covid is over I want to go back to ballroom dancing, but now I am too out of shape/my joints hurt so I get easily discouraged. Look forward to making progress with all of you!
