    Hi all, I joined this group a week ago but then couldn't find it again 🙈
    Starting weight on jan 1st:187lbs

    Goal weight: 160lbs

    This weeks goals are to get used to logging my food again, at least 20 minutes exercise and 10000 steps per day.
    I'm really hoping that it's true that breasfeeding burns off 500 calories per day because then my deficit is sorted 🤣

    Can I still join?

    I'm at my highest weight ever (193!). I weighed less in my last trimester of each ofmy pregnancies and I had another human in me.
    I'm now in my 40s and need to get this under control! I need to be here and healthy for my kids.

    Goal weight: 140 lbs.
    Goals for January: log consistantly, drink more water, get more sleep

    Hi :)
    I too would like to join. Weighed myself today and at my heaviest weight...over 200 for the first time. Never too late to try, right?. Goal 148. Started to log food which is my goal for January along with increasing activity/exercise. I am new to joininga group.

    Welcome! My first goal is to be under 200 pounds, so I get where you’re at.

    Thanks! Back to the grind at work yesterday made it hard to do anything healthy. I ordered uber eats twice cause no time to cook. Little exercise. Hopefully better today!

    We’re in the honeymoon phase of weight loss right now... and I love it. ❤️

    So far since January 1st, I’m down 3.5 pounds. How are you doing so far?

    Logging my food daily and hitting my step goal of 10,000. I agree, I'm in the honeymoon phase. Happy with the progress so far. Logging has kept me aware of what I eat and most importantly what I haven't eaten. Said "no" a few times to junk food. I've got this and it will happen!

    Had a rough week- raging PMT and exhaustion at starting a new job on Monday meant I was eating for Britain and didn't do any exercise. But I did get back out for a 3 mile run this morning and made it the whole way without stopping so that pleased me. Hopefully, that's me back on the exercise wagon. Unsurprisingly, made no progress this week.

    01/01/21: 151.25 lbs
    09/01/21: 152 lbs (+0.75lbs) :(
    GW: 121.25 lbs

    Hi all!

    Thanks, Jill, for starting this.

    Thought I'd check in. I was diagnosed with diabetes last April/May sometime. The doctor actually said my A1C "was out of control." In May/June, I began a low carb/high protein/high fat diet. It's not exactly keto, but it's something like it. In August, I was told my A1C was back to pre-diabetic levels. Since I came back to MFP in June-ish, I have dropped approximately thirty pounds. December was a rough month for me, because, well... goodies. :) I yoyo'd through the month. So I need to get back on it.

    I'm 62 years old, 5'7" and weigh 183. I'm about 33 -38 pounds away from my final goal, and maybe this challenge will help focus me. I have cut way back on carbs (eating way less in a day than I used to eat in a meal) and I'm eating more veggies. I need to get past my inherent sedentary ways and be better about getting out and walking/running/cycling. :)

    Nice meeting all of you.
