100 day challenge

derbygrahamderbygraham Member Posts: 30 Member Member Posts: 30 Member
I have just started my 100 day challenge.
I will try and log for 100 days. Apart from that I have set myself the goal of not eating any gluten products (bread, cakes, biscuits etc) and not drinking any alcohol.
Anybody care to join me ? Friend invites welcome :) Finish line will be 19 May 2021

    I'm game! I'm back on track with Dry February (weekend - not so good). I will track every day too. I need to lose 25 lb, so it will be a great jump start. Thanks.

    Count me in! I need to take a break from the booze and the cravings for junk food that goes along with it! I would like to also kick anything processed out of my diet. Let's do this! :)

    Just joined MFP, so why not. In for a penny in for a pound... Lose a penny lose a pound... LOL

    Log every day
    Weigh in monthly
    Lose 20 pounds - It will happen
    End date May 19th

    My suggestion - Log EVERY day. Always at the same time.

    Whoops. I miswrote. I meant weigh yourself everyday, always at the same time, and log it.

    I understand that, in the past I have done that. I am trying something new, where I don't stress about the weigh in, but instead just focus on doing what I need to do. This is really hard for me, I am a numbers type of guy. But I think for this, this is the way to go for now. I am going to try if for 6 months and see how things work.

    Believe me, I understand the daily weigh in.

    Everyones journey is personal and you find out the best way for you. For me, I like to watch the graph, of daily weight, slowly drop :) 99 days to go :):) Feel free to invite me as a friend on this journey.

    I’ll track with you. I want to lose 16 lbs, 6 to not be in the “overweight” BMI category and 10 additional. The end of your 100 days should put me there.

    Oh, but I will have the occasional gluten (husband has celiac disease, so there’s not much in the house) and one glass of wine most evenings. I have a healthy diet (and have for some time) and don’t rule out any particular food.

    The 100 day challenge is to stay under the calorie intake allowance, and to log continuously for 100 days.

    To give up alcohol and bread stuff is just an add-on I gave myself. I know that I love those things but they have an awful effect on me. :)

    I will also try and join this challenge - first time using app and I am in day 15 now so roughly the same start line - do not think that any attempt in past last 100 days so this should be good motivation
