    Happy Wednesday ShapeShifters!

    You have a new member who has not yet found you - but hopefully we found her! @trappedskinnyb should hopefully be here soon. If not, please friend and message her to help her find her way. MFP can be quite a navigation challenge at the beginning, as you know. Thanks!

    @trappedskinnyb - Welcome to the Shape Shifter team! I’ll send you a friend request to help support you as you get used to the process.

    I saw your introduction in the December Shape Shifter Chat group, which closed at the end of the week, since we always finish on a Saturday. We started ‘meeting’ here in the January Shape Shifter Chat on Sunday. So, this is where we’ll post our weekly weigh-in reports and support one another through the month of January.

    You can click on the ribbon at the top right right corner to bookmark this page. If it turns blue, it will show up at the bottom of your phone screen (or right side menu of the computer screen?) as one of your bookmarks for easy access.

    Feel free to post any questions here and we’ll do our best to answer them. Best wishes for achieving your F2F goals!

    Hi SS... You have a new member joining your team ....Please welcome @SavannahS2016 :)


    Welcome @SavannahS2016 to our team! Please take a moment and introduce yourself and tell us a little about your goals for January and beyond. I'm Jessica, your Team Captain. On behalf of the whole team and our two wonderful Motivators @PatriceFitnessPal and @angmarie28 we're really glad you're here!

    I would recommend going back to page 1 and reading our FAQ file as it will answer many of your basic questions about how things work. If at that time, you have unanswered questions, just make a posting in this chat thread and you're sure to get several responses.

    Again, welcome and good luck in January!
    Jessica :smile:

    Yukie_OP - Happy New Year team!, coming into January a bit late from a month's break.
    Brief Intro/Bio: Mom & Wife living in California. I work full time in an office setting plus currently studying (outside of work hrs) for professional designations. But to summarize: I'm sitting for extended periods of time & to combat this, i take a 15-min walk at lunch time + an evening walk ~ 2-3 miles *weather permitting.

    January's Health Goals:
    1. Check-in with the group (and update weight) at least 1X a week
    2. Logging meals & staying under my daily caloric targets
    3. Steps count 6,000 daily/average
    4. Mobility stretches (at least once/day, 5min)

    * Would like to change my weigh-in date to Fridays
    PW: 136 lbs (last reported 12/4/22)
    CW: 140 lbs

    Steps Update (daily goal 6,000):
    1/01/23 - 6,953
    1/02/23 - 4,484
    1/03/23 - 11,865
    1/04/23 - 8,436

    Daily Check-in

    I’m really surprising myself by staying within my calories. It’s only day 9 or 10 of restarting MFP, and I thought I would struggle getting back into the swing of things. I must admit that I haven’t been out walking much, so I need to work on that.

    I’m excited for my first official weigh-in tomorrow (Fri). If the numbers on the scales this week are anything to go by, then I’ll be very happy.

    Daily Steps Challenge
    ⭐️1 Jan - 5,537
    ⭐️2 Jan - 3,528
    ⭐️3 Jan - 5,052
    ⭐️4 Jan - 4,103
    ⭐️5 Jan - 3,177

    Hi @izzyred9400 nice to “meet” you! I’m from Scotland :) I find maintaining quite a challenge too. I end up getting too lax and it all piles back on. I have no idea how to send a friends request on here but feel free to send me a request if you like :)

    @GwenS23 I already have your weigh-in from Sunday of this week (Sun-Sat), so since you're switching to Saturday weigh days, you won't need to report in again until Sat, Jan 14th. I will have the MODS to move you. Thanks for letting me know!
