    Good morning all! 🙋‍♀️ And welcome to all of the newbies!

    My name is Sue, and I am 61 years old. I live in southern Maryland, am married, have two grown kids (1 in Seattle, 1 in VA), 1 grandbaby (VA) and 1 fur baby 🐶. I work full time, currently teleworking which appears may go on forever. I love to read, ride my bike, quilt, and make greeting cards. I am always up for a challenge and am usually involved in multiple reading, fitness and Fitbit challenges at any given time. 📚🚶‍♀️

    I have been on MFP for almost 10 years now and part of TBBT for almost 2 years. Wow...time sure does fly!! I joined TBBT after COVID/teleworking caused my weight to climb. I am still down from when I joined TBBT but between weddings, vacations and holidays my weight has crept steadily up since last summer. 😕

    The days are getting longer, and slowly getting warmer, so I am looking forward to being able to get back outside and bike / hike / kayak. My goal for April is to end lighter than I started. ⚖️ Not going to assign a number to that, will take whatever.

    Here's to another great month for TBBT!!! 🎉

    Last week and yesterday was a busy, but it’s a new month and I’m gonna make the most of it 😊

    Hello to the newcomers and continuers! 😊
    My name is Amber. I am 30 years old and lives in Michigan. I struggle with binge eating. I sometimes get urges to keep eating, even when im not hungry. But I am working on it and it’s been better than ever! I am only sharing this incase someone else struggles with this and feels alone. Cuz trust me you aren’t alone💗
    I’ve been in this group for a good year now and I love it!! It’s helped with my weight loss so much and everyone is so welcoming!
    Can’t wait to see what April brings 💕

      ABOUT THE CHALLENGES & REQUIRED WEIGHT POSTINGS
      We are going to be running a daily post challenge or MUAC(Mini Ultimate Accountability Challenge) Based on another MFP Challenge called the UAC

      Participation in this challenge is optional but highly encouraged for the following reasons:
      - Helps to keep your goals in focus daily
      - Motivating to see others working on the same things and having the same struggles too. It's defintely a reminder that we're not alone and we are a team
      - Many of us who participate and have successfully lost weight, m would all agree that the daily posting MUAC really is the key!

      The way it works: 
      #1. Track EVERYTHING you eat that has calories.
      #2. Stay inside your allocated daily budget. (you set your own budget)
      #3. Try to do at least 20 minutes of activity a day (anything: walk, run, cycle, swim, gardening, housework, yoga, gym, etc.. As long as it gets you active and off the couch)
      #4. Check in daily (tracking yes/no, calories yes/no, exercise yes/no).

      ****End of the week. those who have managed to keep to plan for 6 out of 7 days are recognized in the thread as being part of the weekly "Winners Circle".
      We started tracking yesterday. Sunday, April 3rd

      Your posts should look like this:
      Daily Post (Sunday)

      Track: Yes/no
      Calories: Yes/no (were you under)
      Exercise: Yes/no (what type and how long)
      Goals/Day/Comments: (Tell us a brief description about how your day went or your goals for the day)


      Please post your weight on your scheduled weigh in day, as if you miss weigh-ins, you may be eliminated from the challenge and we don't want to see that happen!!

      Your posts should look like this:
      Krysless2
      Week 1
      PW =(previous weight)
      CW=(current weight)


      Also, if you have any suggestions for the team or fun ideas to spice things up a bit, please feel free to share them, we look for new ways to help engagement and keep people motivated!!

      Welcome to the Challenge!!

      How was the day?
      My day went pretty well. I was under until I hit dinner and I had one more taco than I originally planned. I was just so hungry and I listened to my body. My water count is pretty good 😊

      Hello and welcome back and welcome new members. I’m Melissa this is my 3rd month with this challenge. It had kept accountable. I have lost 16 lbs since the middle of January. I started with a weight of 250. I’m currently to 234 as of this morning. I can’t wait to continue to kick butt this month.

      Sunday April 3rd
      ✔️Track: yes
      ✔️ Under Calories: yes
      ✔️Exercise: yes I’m counting work as I was not sedentary at all at work working as a nurse
      ✔️ Water: yes

      Monday April 4th
      ✔️Track: yes
      ✔️ Under Calories: yes
      ✔️Exercise: yes working
      ✔️ Water: yes

      So I bought new water bottle and that keeps track of my hourly count. It’s a gallon and the last three days I have managed to keep up even at work. So my challenge this month is keep up with my water and try to exercise when I can. My life is chaos and hectic but I try to exercise when I can and when my schedule allows. I do not have a sedentary lifestyle. My goal weight for this month is to reach 225-229 lbs.
