    Very nice first week @kodakslim and will be even sweeter next week when the January stats begin. You first "official" weigh in is on Friday, Jan 6th and you'll report your registration weight as PW and whatever you see on the scale that day as your CW. Wow you're doing great already!!

    Happy New Year!

    Hi Jessica

    Thanks very much! When I register my official weigh-in on the 6th Jan, should I put my PW at 161 lbs? (this was my weight when I joined at the beginning of the week).

    Apologies, as I’m mixing myself up by joining at the tail end of December :#

    Thanks again and Happy New Year!

    Saturday weigh in
    PW: 217.5
    CW: 217.1
    Not the loss I wanted this week, but considering Wednesday was really bad, I should probably just be happy I got a loss in the first place. I got a sleepscore of 91 this morning, another new record! Happy Saturday everyone <3

    Ugh ! Sorry team but I guess that's what happens when you eat things you don't normally eat like cheese,pate & chocolates.
    Back on it after the weekend.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for adding me!
    I’m Ashley and I’m 41.
    Married, have a 10 year old son, and 4 cats.

    The last time I was successful on MFP was losing the baby weight. I maintained the loss for a few years while I was working part-time, then didn’t have the energy or motivation when I started working full-time again 5 years ago. I have also lost both my parents to cancer in the last 4 years. This has motivated me to get healthier. Even healthy people get cancer, but I want to be living my best life.

    I have to workout (a lot) or I won’t be motivated to track calories. Please help me get up off the couch after a long school day (teacher) and get moving. Thanks!! 😊

    @jessicakrall8

    I would love to try joining the step challenge for January!
    My goal is 15,000 steps each day.
    My favourite place to walk is with my dog along a beautiful trail that goes through the woods.
    Thanks for organizing!

    @pedal__power Need your first name please, for the chart...thanks!

    Welcome @Nixoncat1 and all the other new Shape Shifter team members!

    This year has been a bit stressful for me, and I’ve been moving further and further out of my maintenance target range. It’s frustrating but it’s also an important test. I’ll need to navigate stress and holidays for the rest of my life so I’m eager to find more balance and figure out how to better manage my emotions without relying on food. The most important lesson I’ve learned over the years is how ineffective it is to ‘diet’ in the short-term because it just leads to a continuous cycle of gaining and losing weight. So, I really need to learn to keep my daily calories in balance, and within the target range needed, to maintain optimal health.

    When I workout enough, it allows me to eat a snack during the day, but I’ve been injured. So, I haven’t been able to count on burning exercise calories to meet my daily food target. I really should build more nutritious vegetables into my diet so I satisfy my hunger with better food choices. I know the expression that muscles are made in the kitchen and not the gym is true, so I’ll try to eat fewer processed food items. I’ll keep working on this goal and wish you all the best.
