    Weigh Day Thursday

    It's actually better than I expected for being off my feet and eating kind of a lot of crap the last week. I need to find some decent, non-weight bearing exercises and get back to tracking.

    I was doing chair exercises but when I went to see my Podiatrist he said I want your leg up so he gave me a bunch of exercise to do in bed

    Good evening all. Have a wonderful Friday.
    Check in for 10/13:
    Steps - 11607
    Calories - 2012
    Exercise - pickleball 2 hrs, walk 40 minutes.

    My weight is jumping and my snacking has been horrid. I am redoubling my efforts again. My calories are decent, for today. I want to try to get back down to 1700 eventually.

    Steps for 10/11 - 12059. Sorry, megan.

    Hi all, I'd like to weigh in a day early. Today is my wedding anniversary (15!) and we are going out and that means I'm having a glass of wine! Which isn't super for my weigh in tomorrow. Plus we are doing a little road trip tomorrow starting early. Going to get firewood in the mountains and then drive the enchanted circle to see the aspens- hopefully not a week too late!

    Anyway

    YouTube has a ton of exercises to do while sitting. I have done chair yoga from YouTube. Get back to your tracking and it will make a difference. How long do you have to be off your feet?

    Snacking is a tough one. Is there one thing you can work on at a time? I got back in the habit of eating potato chips. Now I am weaning myself off them again. Weeknights first and then the weekends. Baby steps.

    Real high steps for a non exercise day. I got a pleasant surprise on the scales this morning. My weight since Monday was hovering around 210. I was retaining water from my dinner on Monday.

    Lose 21lb by Christmas
    We are half way through the challenge with 11 weeks left.
    Congratulations to JaysFan82 who has already lost 21lb, well done.
    I'm refocusing the group now so some of our newer team mates can join. Anyone wishing to commit to losing 11lb by Christmas please let me know (people already in the challenge can you let me know if you want to continue with the 21lb or go for the 11lb
    Thanks Lis


    I think I would very much like to go for the 11 lbs. Lee

    Added you for 11lb by Christmas. I'm sure you can do it Lis

    Thank you, Lis :smile:

    Just wanted to remind you that I won’t be weighing in today. I’m actually on the plane now. :smile:
