    @Itadakimasu7 I agree with everyone saying to try to replace it with (dried) fruit. Also finding something small that is sweet enough but doesn't trigger overeating. For me this is dark chocolate. I never eat more than one or two small pieces, but it still does the trick.
    @Sbus12 It can be really hard to find workouts that are actually beginner friendly. At least I thought so when I started. A youtube channel I really like is https://www.youtube.com/@ImprovedHealth . A lot of her workouts are for seniors/beginners and they vary in length and type. I am sure there is something on her channel that you can finish!

    Popping in to say Hi!

    While I have not been active these first few days of May, I did meal prep! I made 2 lbs of chicken, 1 lb of ground turkey, rice, egg whites, and spinach. So I've the majority of my foods ready to go!

    My Spring II session of school is wrapping up so that will reduce my stress and free up some of my time.

    @bearchested I've probably driven through Grinnell, at least almost, on the drive between Des Moines and Iowa City. My dad grew up in Guthrie Center. It's near Des Moines, but very small.

    Hello Teresa! You pinged me in a group I am not a part of, so I figured I would reply in the Shape Shifter team chat. The same goes for you if you want to hop in. It is a little late, but it is not a problem! We just need your starting weight from last week and what day you would like to weigh in for the group. Also if you have a highest weight, feel free to share. I hope you will enjoy the group and please introduce yourself so we can get to know you a little! If you have any questions, there is a FAQ on the first page of this thread. Don't forget to join the group so you can post.

    I have added you to the step challenge. What goal are you trying to hit every day?

    Thank you, let's put my goal at 10,000 steps.

    This week will be low because I am in my last week of the Spring II semester. I am working full time and going to school full time. And I've had doctor appts during 2 of my lunch breaks.
