    So happy to see so many new members joining our team! Welcome everyone!

    After 2 days of eating so much over the weekend I got back on track yesterday and it was tough. After only 2 days. I think it'll take me a couple more days for my body to adjust. Keeping my fingers crossed that the scale is not too hard on me by the time I weigh in on Friday.

    Hi! Excited to join!

    Are people in this group doing a particular eating plan or exercise plan for January? Or tracking calories?

    Also- could someone share the Dropbox link for the spreadsheet with checkboxes for healthy habits you want to build?

    Hi @crhillis!

    I'm new to WNM too. I'm taking Ozempic and tracking my calories. I've tried everything under the sun, and I'm hoping to be successful this time.

    steps

    Sunday: 12301
    Monday: 9566
    Tuesday: 7938
    Wednesday: 6917
    Thursday: 9872
    Friday: 10510
    Saturday: 12025
    TOTAL: 69129

    I think I am ready to come back. I feel more ready in the mornings when everything seems possible. I do not feel ready, not at all, in the evenings, when nothing seems to make any sense. But I think it's about time. My goal for January (starting already a couple days early because why wait until Sunday) is NOT to eat after 5 pm. That's usually the time when my eating controls get muted, turn off, stop working.

    I would also like to change my weigh-in days to Tuesdays so that I post my steps and CW in one post - should I already post the weight today (155.9) or wait till Friday (current weigh day) and switch to Tuesday next week?

    @crhillis Welcome! I've been doing weight watcher's for about 6 weeks but I'm not crazy about it. It's nothing like it used to be the last time I used it 20 years ago. Since January I've tracked calories and tried to keep my net carbs at 40% or less per day using just MFP. I'm currently doing both and when my WW membership ends I won't be renewing it and will be going back to just using MFP since that's what has worked best for me. I also exercise for 30-60 minutes daily, primarily cardio but also light weights a couple times per week.

    Here's the post where the link to the habit tracker spreadsheet is posted. https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10878952/habit-tracker-december-2022-january-2023#latest

    Hope this helps.

    @crhillis hi, I don't follow plans very well but, for a long time, I did enter everything I ate and drank into MFP to get an idea of calorie content and portions. Then I started paying attention to the calorie deficit (what is consumed versus what is burned) and aiming for 500+ deficit per day/3500 per week. For me, this makes sense in the process kid losing weight. Added to this, I do stretching, toning, exercises and walking.

    Good morning from snowy Canada,
    I am viewing today as my first "official day" back with MFP after a long time away. I did my weight this morning and only 2lbs more than what I was anticipating - could be worse. I am feeling very motivated and spent time this morning organizing my fridge / freezer with some healthier foods.
    I also signed up for my first body chair fitness class. I have some bad knee problems and thought this might be a good alternative to the swimming that I normally do.

    Really looking forward to January challenge starting and getting to know everyone.

    I've got you set to come back for January! Glad to see you're re-joining the standard weight-loss team! Today's weigh-in has been recorded - no need to weigh in on Friday unless you want to.

    Steps Results

    I am going to delay making the steps results post until Friday. Be sure to get your steps in from the week leading up to Christmas (Dec 18th - 24th) before I tabulate all of the counts.
