    Sorry everyone. With mom in the hospital everything else has been put on hold. I think I'm going to bow out the rest of December, if that's okay. I really do love being a part of this team but my focus is on getting mom well and comforting my 95 year old dad.

    I love hopping on when I can and reading all of your inspirational stories and hearing about what's going on in your life but, if it is okay, I'm going to take a break and pick things up again with January group.

    @leni1us I've asked the MODS to move you to the Support Team. Take care of your family and I'll be praying for your Mom and Dad...also take care of yourself. I know first-hand how draining caregiving can be. When you're ready to return, just send me an IM or pop in the chat and let me know and I'll get you moved back to active status. Take care!

    Let's take advantage of this final week of 2022 to plan and set up a few small (but effective!) habits to track in January 2023. The new Habit Tracker is ready for you!

    Yesterday, ate something a little higher in fat content and of course my tummy said "excuse me, what?!" so I spent the afternoon feeling irritable and yucky...because of that I started my 16 hr fast early and that, along with the tummy ache, around 10:30 I was starving...got up and made a sandwich, breaking my fast...not the best day. Feel much better today...time to get to work OBVIOUSLY!

    Happy holiday season!
    So sorry to be late checking in. Have been enjoying celebrating Christmas this past week. Was able to fit in a minimum amount of exercise the past couple days, but ate way too much. I'm looking forward to building back some healthier ways and getting back on track in time for the new year!

    @Armygirlarmyof1 Go ahead and weigh in tomorrow morning and report it...no worries...happens all the time. Let me know. I've done it myself once in a while, especially if I'm rushing to get ready for work...

    Hi everyone

    Thank you for having me :)

    SW: 161 lbs
    GW: 142 lbs

    I was with MFP back in 2019, after I had my son and had some excess weight to lose. I believe I started at 184 lbs and got down to 133 lbs. I remember feeling good at my new weight, but it soon crept back on and I’m up to 161 lbs.

    My goals for January: track my food daily, and get out for a short walk everyday. This is what helped me last time.

    My weigh-in day is Friday. I’m looking forward to chatting with/supporting you all :)

    Hi! I just signed up for my first ever fitness pal group and then was assigned to Shape Shifters for the January Challenge. Glad to be here! Am I supposed to sign up for a step challenge? I already found the weigh in sheet and the habit tracker? Anything else I should know? Do we share our logged meals or anything?

    Hi @jessicakrall8

    Could I please join the step challenge?

    MFP Name: Kodakslim
    First Name: April

    I wouldn’t call it my favourite place to walk, but i feel comfortable walking round my block. It takes me around 30 minutes.

    Daily step goal: 5000

    I know it’s not much, but admittedly, I’ve been very inactive for a long time, so I’m starting small.

    I’ve dug out my Fitbit again, charged it up and it’s ready to go!

    Steps:
    12/23 8,307
    12/24 10,326
    12/25 9,370

    Please add me to January step challenge. I really don't have a favorite place to walk since in SE Wisconsin it's winter, ice, snow, rain, cold - I usually get my steps in walking around the house, riding my recumbent bike and workouts - I bowl in a league on Tuesdays
    I have a fitbit and usually do challenges with a couple of friends
