    REVIEW:
    🔹Developing solid daily habits has made
    sticking to goals so much easier 😂
    🔹January focus on flexibility is reaping rewards, so continuing with that in February
    🔹Maintenance weight range lowered to:
    135 < x < 140


    My take on LIFE is simple. We make choices and we know what the outcome will be.
    No guilt! No recriminations!
    😂 Own it and move on 😂

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    Monday weigh in
    PW: 138.5
    CW: 139

    I’ve had a hard time getting/staying motivated in January. I feel like I’ve figured things out a little bit these last few days but what I really need to do is figure out a way to travel and not let it derail any progress I’ve made! I’ve got some fun trips coming up which is good! But I know I also have an easier time losing/maintaining weight when I am home cooking my own meals and staying consistent with my workouts.

    As a newbie from January do I need to sign up for Feb or do I automatically roll into February. My weight loss in January was so poor that rolling into Feb sounds about right. Despite poor performance in January, I am determined!
    Very excited about the heart challenge. With my knee issues can’t really engage in steps but there many other activities I can do. This one seems like fun.

    There is nothing to sign up for. You just need to find the link for Feb and post in the Feb chat.
