    Hello everyone! Welcome to the new and current members! My name is Amber! I’ve been on this team for almost a year now. I absolutely love everyone on this team! Everyone is so supportive.

    My goals for this month:
    🔹drink at least 8 cups of water a day
    🔹log everything regardless if I’m going over or not. I have a bad habit of not logging once I go over.
    🔹report daily for the accountability posting!

    What’s everyone goals? 😊

    Hi everyone, I haven't been on mfp for a while, so may need to relearn some things.

    My goals for the month are to track my food and cut out late night snacking.

    Happy New Year to all. Welcome new members. I'm Dee, and I've been on this team for just a few months. I'm Canadian expat (I live in Mexico).
    New years eve was a personal success for me. I had an engaging and interesting evening. I normally overindulge in every way possible, and never remember the night. This year I reached out to the group for some of your tips to enjoying a party setting without overindulging...whatever that might mean to you. I got some great advice from @DaffyGirl88 I avoided my usual habits. It did help that the evening was a few english speaking couples, and a Mexican family of 8. Some were bilingual and some only spoke one language or the other, and some (me included) are learning each other's language. The mexican family put on a feast of barbq turkey, poblano pepper spaghetti noodles, secret grandmas recipe mole sauce for the noodles, and some delicious flavored type of chutney for the turkey. We enjoyed each other's company and learned to feel more comfortable speaking, or attempting to speak in each others language. The evening was a success. I did not overindulge in food or wine, although I did not keep within my calorie limits. I watched the new year roll in with fireworks across the beachfront sky.

    I woke up this morning with a awesome feeling that this will be THE YEAR! The BEST EVER! Lets all believe it and Live your best life every day. Happy Happy New Year:)

    Please can you roll my weight over to January.

    I'm finding navigating here really difficult. Everytime I think I've understood how-to get here iend up having to do multiple steps.

    I hope it gets easier in time. I used to look at these posts daily. Now I'm lucky to get here to make a post once a week.

    I have bookmarked it.

    Yesterday was a great day! I was keeping myself busy and that helped with the mindless snacking! Plus i made sure to at least hit my 8 cups of water goal! I’m ready to keep moving along😊

    The "new year new me" might be cliche but it's in fact a good kind of motivation knowing that you can start over if you lost track or continue with the good work you've been doing in the previous year. So I hope we all can achieve our goals in 2022!

    I completely agree! That’s one of the things that’s keeping me motivated right now. I keep telling myself it’s a fresh year and its gonna be great! I think this year will be amazing for all of us to crush our goals 😊💪🏻
