    @Beka3695 I would like to reset my SW at 172.1, I am starting over in May and looking for some serious progress.

    I am lucky that I work for an essential company and can work form home. It is hard with kitchen right at your fingertips. I sit longer and work longer than before, causing a slow gain. Trying a new program that should kick start my progress, so tomorrow I start and looking forward to next weeks weigh in.

    Hi Michelle -- it has been updated :)

    Hi guys!!! Sorry I have been MIA this first weekend of May.

    I just arrived home from visiting my daughter and 2 mo old grandson. For those of you here in February - Can you believe he is already 2 months?!?! Adorable pics to follow. I will spoiler for those of you with rock hard hearts that don't enjoy adorable baby pics :D:D:D

    Sooo.... how did I survive a weekend away? Well, not great but not bad either.
    Friday, I was over but had exercise calories to cover. Saturday barely over but +1500 exercise calories. I woke up before anyone else so I did a 3.75m 75% walk, 25% run. Today will be over- way over. I had a delicious breakfast before leaving. Mainly left overs from last night. ON the drive home I had pizza and a doughnut. Ugh. No exercise today, just almost 7 hours in the car.

    It was wonderful seeing them, but I am glad to be home.

    FOR THE NEW FOLKS

    It looks like most of you have already figured this out... but when you are posting weigh ins, please use this format.

    Beka3695
    Saturday..........your weigh day helps us find you on the spreadsheet
    PW 214.2........This just helps us double check our spreadsheet
    CW 214.0........Well, this needs no explanation....

    If you are sick or going to be out of town and cannot weigh in, please let @boehle or me know and we can mark you excused. You can post it in the thread, just tag us please.

    If you do not weigh in, you will be marked with NWI. 2 of these will get you moved to the Support squad. You can move back the first of the next month.

    You only need to post on the thread - we will enter you on the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is there for your review. You are welcome to take a look at our team or the others. Here is the link:

    I'm not quite sure what is wrong.I'm at a defecit.Using exact measurements and working out daily..

    There's a bit of a checklist to run through when not seeing the results you hoped for... from memory, something like:
    • Give it time. In the short term we have many variations in weight, only the longer term trend is important.
    • Don't focus so much on "scale" weight, check your other measurements, as you could have changes going on with your body composition that don't show up on the scale. (e.g. weight fluctuates a lot naturally, can be hydration, salts, hormonal, digestive tract contents, muscle, inflammation) etc. In particular, if you are working out a lot more lately than you normally do, muscle inflammation & water retention could be a thing.
    • Check with a doctor to make sure no underlying health issues that could be affecting weight.
    • Make sure you're getting enough sleep and reducing stress. These processes and hormones affect how well your body burns fat.
    • Make sure the diet/what you're eating is a good fit for you. What works for one person doesn't necessarily work for everyone, and it's a matter of trial and error to find the right combo for you. (Personally, CICO isn't a good fit for me, I do LCHF wholefoods and intermittent fasting.)

    Good luck :smile:

    Ugh. My weight has been going purely UP in the last week (I weigh daily). My muscles are super sore and I baked some breakfast rolls last weekend which I know bloat me up, so I know there are rational reasons for "gain". It's still discouraging to see the numbers going up right in the beginning.

    Repeating this as a mantra: forming healthy habits that last a lifetime is more important than the number on the scale going down every single day.

    With that, I'll go pre-log my food for the day and spend the day working on last night's revelation: for some reason I do a lot of morning snacking because I feel like it's "too early" to eat lunch. Still, I wake up and eat breakfast around the same time as during office days, and at the office we always go out for lunch at freakin' 11 AM. Lately I've been snacking all morning on less-than-healthy stuff because it's still too early for lunch, then end up eating lunch later and not having time/hunger to actually eat my super healthy afternoon snack.

    Wow ! Just amazing
    No Sport - No Gym - No Running.
    Working from home with my kids, doing a lot of cleaning LOL but I cook 3 meals/day trying to have in each: protein, carbs and twice the amount of veggies.

    I’m normally a pretty laid back person but yesterday I let some things get to me and the anxiety soared around dinnertime. I’m an emotional eater. Ate a decent dinner, but topped it off with a glass of wine and cheese and crackers, which put me over my limit. Could have been much much worse so I’m glad I was able to stop there. However, somehow I need to figure out how to not run to the refrigerator when I’m upset.
