    👏🏻 🥳 congratulations! Any advise?

    @jrortega1912 I had posted this a few days back. I hope it helps. One step at a time it’s a process.

    1. This not a race with a specific weight loss goal, it's a lifestyle change. True success is gaining insight, tools and habits that work. Once we do that the weight will come off. I promise. The road to that can be found here there are so many resources. And it won't happen instantly. It's a process and a very rewarding one if you submit to it.

    2. Deal with discouragement in a healthy way. Accept that discouragement at times is unavoidable. I got discouraged at times and I lost weight at about 2 pounds per week exceeding my target of 1 pound per week. As much as it feels like failure when the scale goes up, and it will no matter what you do, ask yourself if you've made progress building sustainable, good habits. Because that's what your success depends upon. That's the true measure. I promise.

    3. You CAN build good habits. I had terrible habits and spent most of my of my life able to eat whatever I wanted. I had to relearn almost everything. One step at a time. Be patient, this is a process.

    4. Open your mind and embrace that breakthroughs come sometimes when you don't expect them. The key is showing up and placing effort.

    5. Find self love. Want for yourself a healthy body and lifestyle and know that you deserve it. Do whatever it takes to get there. This point trumps the others.

    I don't mean to simplify this or suggest what helped me applies to everyone. But I believe in you. If you are here and read this you're showing up...and .... you can do this....

    I'm ready to get back to healthy habits and a healthier weight starting tomorrow!

    My goals…

    🌟Lose .5 pounds each week… 26 pounds this year
    🌟Work out 3-5 days a week
    🌟Drink less wine
    🌟Log consistently
    🌟Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌟Move 30 minutes a day

    Highest weight:214.5
    Current weight:214.5
    January Goal Weight: 209

    January 3—214.5 - well - that's a number I never want to see again. Let's do this!
    January 4—213
    January 5— 213.4 - had sushi last night. Hit my exercise goal, plus 10,000 steps and only 1 glass of wine - so I think it's the sodium.
    January 6—212.7 workout done
    January 7— 213.4 - hmm - I see some tweaks I need to make
    January 8— 211.9 - weight loss is weird - yesterday I had too many chips, had pizza for dinner with wine and I lose this - so bizarre!
    January 9—213.4 - there's the pizza! Did better yesterday and got my workout done for today.
    January 10—213.4 - not bad for the first week - down 1.2. Now for some tweaks for this week.
    January 11—211.9
    January 12— 211.9
    January 13— 211.4 - a loss and I've stuck with this for 10 days - taking it one day at a time and reminding myself slow and steady wins the race.
    January 14— 211.2
    January 15—211
    January 16—212.1 - pizza on Friday and burgers last night. All good - got my workout in today.

    With any luck I’ll be going to the Bahamas at the end of this month. My goal is to reach my goal weight well before then. Goal is 125, 4.8 lbs. I’m also doing dry January so hoping to combine the benefits of not drinking with more exercise and better food choices! Get the cookies and chocolates out of my kitchen! It’s 2022 and that’s so last year!

    5’5” - 52, goal is 125

    Dec 31 - 129.8
    Jan 1 - holiday!
    Jan 2 - in Boston couldn’t weigh
    Jan 3 - 131, not weighing in daily always does me in! Now I have 6 lbs to go…
    Jan 4 - 131 ugh, I’m stuck
    Jan 5 -131
    Jan 6 - 131
    Jan 7 - missed
    Jan 8 - missed
    Jan 9 - 130.2
    Jan 10 - 131.1
    Jan 11 - 132
    Jan 12 - 132
    Jan 13 - 132
    Jan 14 - 130.2 better but I’m not even where I started. But I am 14 days AF. Finally warm enough to walk in the morning but next week is looking too cold in CT
    Jan 15 - 130.2
    Jan 16 - 129.5. 4.5 lbs left and less than 2 weeks before I need to put on a bathing suit. My shorts and summer clothes will just barely fit if I stay this weight.

    Highest weight: 293
    Current weight: 184.4
    January weight lost so far: 6.2

    December 30—190.6
    December 31—188.6
    January 1—190.6
    January 2—188 (First day of 2022 was mostly spent in the car driving the 11+ hours to my Dad's. I had gotten up before the drive to ride my Peloton and got a PR on my 45 minute time. I have to be more creative while I'm here to get my exercise in but you can bet I'll be doing just that!)
    January 3—188 (Enjoyed the second day of 2022 at my Dad's house. It's cold here but I got my 10K steps by walking inside. I also did a short dumbbell workout and yoga session. He cooks lots of veggies with his meals so that's been great.)
    January 4—186.8 (Finding ways to stay active at Dad's. We had supper at my Aunt and Uncle's house last night - homemade lasagna. Finding ways to stay on track despite being out of my normal routine.)
    January 5—188.2 (Back on the road today, heading home from Dad's. Last meal was Chinese food and I ate a little more than planned. Back to normal routine tomorrow. Overall my weight is down on this trip which is great.)
    January 6—187 (Great drive home yesterday, did my longest Peloton ride ever when I got home. Back to normal routine but not back to work until tomorrow.)
    January 7—186.8 (Work day flew by, Peloton ride on my lunch break, video chat with my mother-in-law tonight. Happy weekend!!)
    January 8—185.2 (Up early but hoping to doze a bit more as I had a poor sleep which is unusual for me. We shall see what fun we get up to today!)
    January 9—185.4 (Had a nice and relaxing day around home yesterday but did also manage to get outside for my first walk of 2022 - the cold had finally settled just enough to make it bearable! Looking forward to the same again today.)
    January 10—184.8 (Yesterday my husband and I went out to trying snowshoeing for the first time. Had a blast! Busy day at work today but I had my 100th Peloton ride live before I started and got a shout out... fun milestone for me!)
    January 11—184.6 (Good day of eating, sun was out, walked and biked, showered and planning to read and rest up for the rest of the evening.)
    January 12—183.4 (My days seem to have a rhythm to them this week - work, Peloton, supper, MFP, a bit of TV/reading, bed. Whatever works!)
    January 13—184.6 (Broke the pattern and started the day with the bike instead. Work has been tough this week. Looking so forward to the weekend.)
    January 14—183.2 (At last Friday is here. The weekend is going to be a welcomed break. Lazing around in bed this morning before work so my workout will have to be right after work.)
    January 15—182.2 (Up to drive just over an hour north to get our dog groomed. Husband and I will have a great breakfast at a cute little tea house nearby.)
    January 16—184.4 (Ate just above maintenance yesterday as my husband made some special food for the Bills playoff game. Today we got out to the mountains to snowshoe and I'll hop on the bike right after this. It was a lovely weekend and I feel recharged and ready for another work week.)

    In another "community" group I'm a member of we have the option of editing our posts. Wondering why that option is available to some groups and not to others. It would be so much easier to stay connected if we could edit/update one post rather than re posting nearly daily.
