Here is your Team chat room for November 2022. This is where you weigh weekly, post your goals and progress, discuss any issues or topics of interest, share ideas, support your teammates, receive help when you need it, and dream big. Try to post often, and help each other succeed! Bookmark this thread to make it easy to land there any time.

We have five great teams. The group and team leaders are as follows:

HOW IT ALL WORKS: The November challenge runs from October 30th - December 3rd. F2F months always start on a Sunday and end on a Saturday, so adjust your calendars!

Every challenger weighs in weekly on their chosen day right here in the team chat thread. At the end of each week, the tallies are done to determine the team and individuals with the most weight lost. The best losers are announced with full fanfare every Sunday. The team competition is all in good spirits - may the most losing win!

We also celebrate those small, steady losses. If you lose, however small an amount, you are in the green! At the end of the month, we celebrate everyone who lost at least a bit every week. You are heading steadily towards your goal even if you aren't at the top of the weight loss leaderboard.

To make your weigh-in easy to find for your team Captains, please put it right at the top of a message, and use this format:
Weigh In Day:
PW (Previous Weight):
CW (Current Weight):

If you miss two weigh-ins in a row without asking for a break, you will be dropped from the team, so be sure to inform your team captain if you are traveling, sick, or just need some time off. If you take a break, you can be excused for a week or two, or are moved to the Support Team for longer. You can remain on the Support Team for as long as you need to. You still participate in the discussions, you can weigh in if you want to, but it will not count in the weekly tally.

Once you reach your goal weight, you join the Goal Zone! You continue to weigh in every week. If you have 2 weeks above your self-defined goal zone, you go back to the regular team to lose that amount before it builds up. You will have a chance to hone those maintenance skills and stick with your team!

In addition to your own team, there are weekly F2F Full Group CHALLENGES. You can do all or none - it's up to you. Participating adds a lot to your success, so we hope to see you there often! These can involve anything fitness, health, or nutrition - and they’ll get you moving, thinking, and learning about this journey. Check the Announcements section for full group challenges.

Let’s show our fellow challengers some F2F love! Introduce yourselves right away, and let the new month begin!!

    I have never had this many steps in a week before. I should go on vacation without a car more often. We had to walk all over the resort and then we would always walk into town for shopping and drinks to change up things from the resort. I have also been exercising since I got home, im hoping to make a change. Today I went to zumba and then I plan on just getting all my laundry done and maybe do some things around the house or maybe get mentally prepared to go back to work. We took the grandkids trunk or treating Friday night and will go out trick or treating tomorrow. I love watching them run around all excited.

    Hi All!

    Thanks for taking me in. I'm glad to be part of the Weight No More Team.

    I'll be just turned 50 on 10/29. I'm a mother of 3 and grandmother of 3 (so far). I'm also a semi-retired registered nurse, currently living and volunteering in Rwanda, but my home base is western New York State. I have certifications in medical coding, grief counseling, yoga, zumba and most recently health coaching. I was obese as a child and have struggled with weight most of my life. Now that I have my health coach certification I know that I really have to walk the talk. I know what to do and how to do it, but accountability has always been my weakness. That's why I really appreciate a support group like this.

    Peace, Jessica

    Hi I’m Melissa and here for the November challenge. Retired Nurse, love my chickens and duck, hunting, vacations, and losing weight, getting more tone and in shape to get rid of diabetes and high triglycerides and those meds. Also have Hashimotos. Looking to get back up to 7,000 steps a day then increase eventually to 10,000.

    Any tips for traveling while keeping your calories where they need to be? I’m usually fine at home but if I go anywhere for even 2 days I gain a pound 🙁

    Although it's a pain to do while traveling, keeping your food journal helps to keep calories in control. I like to try everything, especially new and special foods, but take small amounts. Also stay hydrated and drinking plenty of water. Try not to let the calorie counting ruin your fun. Good luck and enjoy your trip.

    @colemanmelissa

    Drinking a TON of water is always my tactic, so I am going to have to agree with @JessicaVRosati on this one. It's also important to remember that we tend to retain water when we consume salty/sugary foods, so the pound you believe you gain may just be water. You would have to eat about 3500 extra calories just to gain a pound, so it's much more likely that you're retaining water if you're seeing a jump in weight after just a couple days away.

    @minstrelofsarcasm Ashley, I don't know if you saw the announcement but MFP will be retiring the personal blogging feature in a few weeks. According to the announcement, you have until 11/17 to download copies of your blogs if you want to save them, then the personal blog feature will go away completely on 11/21. Here's the link to the announcement:

    I did not! I've been working on copying everything to Google Docs, but have been slacking for a while. I'll have to get back on that - thanks for letting me know!
