    Good morning,

    I didn’t reach my 10K steps yesterday (8777), but I did get 30 minutes of exercise in. I logged all of my food yesterday, but went over my calories. I’m happy with my progress from yesterday overall. Keeping in mind that I’m setting back into the routine of good habits. Progress not perfection.

    Have a great Saturday!

    Jill ☕️

    50lbs would a stretch goal for me but I need to get under 200. Currently at 225 and just turned 50. Primary goal is to take off 25 to 30lbs but there's no reason to stop there!

    Starting weight: 195 pounds on 1/1/2021

    HSW: 258
    UGW: 148

    Challenge Start Weight: 212.9 lbs
    Challenge goal - 175 lbs - hopefully by summer!

    Weekly Check-In:
    January 1: 212.9 lbs

    This week’s successes:
    have re-started logging absolutely everything. This was an old habit. I have now gotten into the swing again and hope I can maintain that.

    This week’s challenges:
    winter is keeping me inactive. But the biggest challenge, starting work tomorrow - I need to make time to consistently log everything. Working from home helps a little as I can weigh everything.

    Hi, everyone! My name's Pam and I live in Virginia on a farm with my husband and various animals.
    This will be my umpteenth time of beginning a major health renovation! (Notice I avoided the "d" word!)

    My history: I have lost 50 or more pounds several times in my life only to gain it all back eventually. (Duh, or I wouldn't be here starting over again. GAH!) I really don't know why I let things derail me so I think that will be my biggest challenge. If I get off track, I need to recognize it and regroup.

    Pre-existing conditions: My only known health challenge is a left knee that will need replacing sometime in the not too distant future. (I broke my patella in 2004 and consider myself lucky that the surgeons didn't replace it then.)

    2020 was not a good year. I don't even know how much weight I gained. I nicknamed them my "Corona Carbs." ;) My family suffered several major stressful life events, although fortunately none related to COVID. I am a HS teacher. I have never worked harder in my 30+ years of teaching than during this school year with a blended classroom, but I won't even get into that. 2021 has to be better if only because I take more control of me.

    Starting weight: 238 pounds on 1/3/2021
    Age: 57
    Height: 5’4”
    Goal weight: 165

    Weekly Check-In:

    January 17:
    January 24:
    January 31:

    This week’s goals: (I am starting small by setting goals I know I can achieve.)
    *Drink 64 oz water every day
    *Get 150 minutes of intentional exercise
    *Write in my blog every day.

    This week’s challenges:
    *Going back to school
    *Cutting back on things with added sugar
    *Cutting back on alcohol

    I'm looking forward to getting to know people here, cheering our successes and hopefully finding motivation and friendship!
