    Happy new year everyone! I’m Athena. I am loving these challenges, they are helping me stay motivated!

    My goal for this month is to start to focus on my physical activity, this is where I struggle the most. I plan to wake up and go to the gym on weekdays every morning for 45 minutes and occasionally do classes in the afternoon. I’ll also continue to push to only eat out on weekends/on holidays. I am going to try to lose 4 pounds each month.

    Highest weight: 165
    End of month goal: 155
    Current weight: 159

    January 1 - 159 (went out)

    January 19 - 157 (home cooked, jogged 45 min.)

    January 27 - 156 (home cooked, ran 45 min.)
    January 28 - 156 (home cooked, inclined walk 45 min.)

    My knees started killing me in the morning yesterday so I chose to lay off the running today. Thinking Saturday will stay my rest day until my body can handle the runs better. Gotta pace myself!

    Highest weight: 293
    Current weight: 179.8
    January weight lost so far: 10.8

    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.)
    January 17—185.4 (Pretty straightforward day... work, a walk at lunch, exercise after work. Good meals today, no calories left over for snacking. Will tuck in with a book or a bath or something else to take my mind off things.)
    January 18—184.4 (Cold weather is back so I didn't walk but I did ride the bike at lunch. Going to walk a bit while I watch TV to get my step count up as I spent most of the day sitting.)
    January 19—183.2 (Just keeping things moving. Did my ride, got through work, and enjoyed my meals.)
    January 20—181.4 (Got a difficult situation dealt with today, did a Peloton ride, some dance cardio, and now I'm about to relax for supper with my husband. Feeling so glad it's Friday tomorrow!)
    January 21—183 (Day off the bike today to rest up for the PeloFondo event tomorrow where I'll ride my longest daily distance ever. Looking forward to the challenge!)
    January 22—185 (PeloFondo is underway! I've done about 60% of my distance and my husband is currently finishing up his day. We have dinner out with friends tonight so I'll finish mine before and after, depending on time.)
    January 23—185.2 (Cycling event went super well yesterday, both my husband and I met our goals. Mostly rest with some walking mixed in for today. And football!)
    January 24—186 (Did my Peloton retest of the FTP and I'm very happy with my improved results. Cooked a nice chicken dinner for my Mom and I as my husband is out of town.)
    January 25—183.8 (Breakfast made, about to start work, walk at lunch and an easy salad that's premade, Peloton after work, and a healthy supper. Then hoping for a bath or hot tub!)
    January 26—180.2 (Had a super challenging Peloton ride yesterday and felt so accomplished afterwards. My husband got home this afternoon, yay!)
    January 27—179.8 (Pinch me, I've found a new decade today! Work is busy, so I'm just keeping things simple. Eating good food, getting my workouts in. Trying to sleep well and keep my stress down. Checking in with you lovely folks here!)

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s



    Starting Weight (from December 31st): 191.6
    Goal: 186.6 (Five lb Loss)

    **************************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME************************************

    01/19.…..193.2…..(Trend Weight 193.1)…..
    01/20.…..192.6…..(Trend Weight 193.0)…..

    01/21.…..193.0…..(Trend Weight 193.0)….. Great dietary choices yesterday and nice quantities within my limits. Still a lack of movement and low water. The water part I can work on. A slice of pumpkin pie with Cool Whip very late last night likely accounts for the major part of the uptick. That was my only lapse yesterday. Today my goal is to not be influenced to over eat or eat the wrong things. My daughter is off work for her normal 3 day weekend and she eats constantly!

    01/22.…..193.6…..(Trend Weight 193.1)….. Pasta for dinner but all within calories. Only 5000+ steps due to reno restrictions. It must be that.

    01/23.…..196.0…..(Trend Weight 193.1)….. WTH????? Okay, I know how to play this game and THIS doesn’t make ANY sense! I did have Chinese carry-out for dinner brought in by daughter so I expected a bump up even though I drank extra water and I only ate half leaving leftovers for today, but the rest of my day was very good. It has to be the lack of exercise. This project is not yet half finished . My poor grandson is trapped upstairs and I’m trapped down. I’ve got to use the steps today for some extra movement.

    01/24.…..194.4…..(Trend Weight 193.5)….. Diet and Calories about the same as yesterday. One day a double huge gain. The next day a nice loss. Go Figure! Moving on……

    01/25.…..194.4…..(Trend Weight 193.6)….. I guess no change is better than a gain. Fitbit shows over 7000 steps and 20 flights of stairs although I’m very sure it was more flights than it captured. Livingroom reno is moving s..l..o..w. I will be involved in reno’s for YEARS. This is about 3200 or 3300 sq ft of finished house and it ALL has to go. Bye-bye 1970’s. Some things I am doing are cosmetic until we can get back to the big stuff in the spring when the roads are better for the long hauls from the big box stores. It is looking much better though. The areas we are working on are the most restrictive for actual living. Another week maybe?

    01/26.…..194.4…..(Trend Weight 193.6)…… Same lack of movement as yesterday. I did get in 15 flights of stairs (mine are long and steep) according to fitbit but I swear it was more. A little of 7000 steps again. That is low for me. Handyment were off today because I traveled to out-of-town dentist for a cleaning. Got in some shopping and hit a hobby lobby. Next time I am taking a tent and making it a vacation. So much inspiration in that place. I couldn’t get out without spending $200 + dollars and that was with everything I purchased at 50% off. Hopefully the steps throughout that one store alone today will make up for the Applebee’s.

    01/27.…..196.8…..(Trend Weight 194.0)…… After travel weight. 3 meals instead of 2.

    01/28.…..196.4…..(Trend Weight 194.2)…… A small drop reinforcing the knowledge that it sure comes on faster than it drops off!

    01/29.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    01/30.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    01/31.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……

    Hi, I'm Karen. I found the December challenge helpful so I'm back for January. Thanks for the accountability help!
    Goals for January:
    Weigh, track, stay within maintenance calories, exercise, gratitude every day.
    Jan 1: 143.
    Jan 2: 144.3. Didn't stay within maintenance calories last 2 days. Old problem of eating after I get home from a social thing. Need to go right to bed.
    Jan 3: 142.4. Again above maintenance calories yesterday, but I avoided after dinner eating, so that was a success. Met my other goals.
    Jan 4: 142.2. Met yesterday's goals.
    Jan 5: 142.4. Over calorie goal and didn't walk yesterday.
    Jan 6: 142.4. Met goals yesterday.
    Jan 7: 142.0. Missed exercise goal but met the others.
    Jan 8: 143.4. Missed exercise goal but met the others.
    Jan 9: 142.4. Over maintenance calories but met other goals.
    Jan 10: 143. Slightly over calorie target, but met other goals. I realized that the last few weeks have been teaching me what my maintenance calories are since my weight has been very steady. So if I really want to lose weight I have to cut out something. This is a good moment for me to rethink my nightly wine drinking.
    Jan 11: 142.2. Met goals yesterday. I cut back my nightly wine by half. I'd like to cut it out completely for 3 or 4 nights per week but I need a little time to get my head around that. I'll think about health and taking care of myself and that will help me get there.
    Jan 12: 143.4. Met goals yesterday except for the wine goal.
    Jan 13: 141.8. Met goals yesterday.
    Jan 14: 141.8. Wine goal is not happening. Health risks on this should be motivating me but they're not.
    Other goals met.
    Jan 15: 144.6. Ouch. Chinese food and some extra treats took me over calorie goal. Also missed exercise goal.
    Jan 23: 143.6. A few days off line. Back on track today.
    Jan 24: 141.8. Over calorie target a bit on Sunday. Met other goals.
    Jan25: 144.4. Crazy amount of sodium yesterday. Met goals.
    Jan26: 143.6. Met goals yesterday.
    Jan 28: 143.6. No exercise yesterday. Met other goals.

    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.
    January 17—212.1 - I'll take it! That's 2.3 down in 2 weeks - slow and steady!
    January 18—212.5 - not surprised - I had too much Skinny Pop popcorn. Makes me bloated.
    January 19—212.7 - got injections in my knees yesterday which causes stress to the body. Hoping this goes down tomorrow.
    January 20—213 - this is when I would normally quit. Not this time - sticking with it - a few bad days does not make a month. Today's workout is done!
    January 21—212.5 - heading back in the right direction.
    January 22—213
    January 23—213
    January 24—212.9
    January 25—212.6
    January 26—212.4
    January 27—211.2
    January 28—211.6 - I seemed to have missed a few days so some of these are guesses.
