    Fantastic loss! Would you like to move to the main team until you see the doctor and settle on a maintenance weight? Either way works.

    The chicken 🍗 situation sounds terrible. Lucky that he didn’t get sick.

    @rwood566
    Great exercise and well done on the 2 candy free days.

    @tahm42
    Awesome steps!

    @Jpedno
    Changing jobs is difficult at the best of times let alone when you are feeling unwell. Take each lunch as it comes and be mindful of your choices.

    Steps 14,205

    The building manger is here fixing our toilets so once she leaves I will head to the pool. I have an appointment for more blood work just after lunch so it may have to be a quick swim. It’s Wednesday so I am playing cards and going out to dinner tonight. The place we are going doesn’t have nutritional information so my diary will definitely be an estimate today. Normally, I try only to go to places with the calories listed online.

    @lindamtuck2018 Please keep me on the maintenance team - I spoke with my doctor and we are just going to evaluate week to week - thank you! Also - great steps! Have a great swim today!

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 Thank you! I think you are out for a walk right now - hope you're having a great time!

    @Morethanjustanumber Awesome steps - congrats!

    @rwood566 Great job staying away from the candy - I think I might try to challenge myself to some candy-free days - I've been eating some type of sugary treat each day so that I don't feel like I'm on a diet

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 Thank you! I think you are out for a walk right now - hope you're having a great time!

    You're welcome ...I didn't enjoy this walk due to my hips hurting the entire time ... Stupid hip dysplasia

    Things are changing for me and after today I won't be able to continue with this challenge, nor with mfp. Sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.

    You never really know what circumstances happen in life that can change things for you, but we learn and adjust to them. I'll still continue on this weight loss journey, and one day reach my final weight goal.

    Wish everyone the best with this challenge and in your lives.

    Sorry to see you go ...I hope things will be alright with you ...hugs

    Weigh In Day: Thursday
    PW: 273.4
    CW: 267.2

    Loss: 6.2lbs

    So happy with this! After hitting my highest weight ever last week, I knew I needed to make changes immediately and stop with excuses. I know it won't be like this each week and it's mostly water weight. My TOM is due in a few days too, but I'm gna keep at it! Tracking everything, drinking 2+ litres of water and some exercise (walking). I'm also weighing in daily to keep an eye on things.

    Happy Thursday, Downsizers! Here's my check-in:

    4/20:
    Calories: 1,197
    Exercise: 70 minutes elliptical
    Steps: 12,359

    I was not feeling inspired to hop on the elliptical this morning - so I'm planning to go for a run after work.

    @Megan_smartiepants1970 I'm so sorry about your hips and your throat! I hope you're feeling better soon!

    @KarlyM59 We are so sorry to see you go - we will always be here for you should you decide to come back!

    @rwood566 Great steps and calories!

    @roz0810 Amazing loss - congratulations! Getting back on track is always the hardest step - good for you!!!

    I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

    Best of luck on the rest of your journey. If you ever decide to come back to mfp we would be more than glad to have you back.

    @Megan_smartiepants1970
    Sorry you have a sore throat and hips.

    @rwood566
    With those calories it looks like you had a candy free day. Well done!

    @roz0810
    Way to turn things around! You have a solid plan for the coming week to set you up for another fantastic loss.

    @peng123
    Enjoy your run tonight!

    Steps: 13,809
    Exercise: 58 minutes laps and water aerobics

    I am not sure if I will be going to the pool today. I have my rheumatologist appointment this morning. If she gives me cortisone shots I will not exercise today or tomorrow. I am hoping my liver enzymes have gone down as I don’t want to go through a change of my rheumatoid arthritis medication. I have my fingers crossed. Have a great Thursday!
