    @jessicakrall8, what would I need to do to join the step challenge thingy?

    @Armygirlarmyof1
    Tell us you want to join, pick a step goal you want to hit each day and post your steps in the group here, ideally daily or every few days. Jessica doesn't like having long step lists, lol! I personally don't mind. :smile:

    Hello all. I'm Roz. I've been in this group (different team) before but lost motivation and didn't log in much anymore but im back! I have a lot of weight to drop. I am starting by making sure I track everything and drink 2L+ of water daily. I have been struggling with motivation. I am also going back to intermittent fasting as I need to stop eating in the evening/night. Thanks for having me

    Welcome back!

    I like to think of motivation as garbage (said the new team motivator).
    If we wait around to be motivated, how much would get done?
    I like to think of it as...
    Determination > Motivation
    or
    Dedication > Motivation
    or
    Discipline > Motivation

    We're all a work in progress.

    Not eating in the evening has helped me. I try to have my last bites about 3 hours before I want to fall asleep. If those hunger pains creep in, I have some magnesium water. I add that Calm magnesium powder to water.

    Thank you! Yes not eating in the evening is a challenge for me. I use to do intermittent fasting a lot so I'm slowly trying to do that again

    @pupowl, OK. Ty. Yesterday was 2000. I think 2500 each day is reasonable at the moment until my left knee is better

    Tinus got a big box with a new cat tree in it today! I have this exact same cat tree in the shed ready to throw out because it was really used up. It was on sale now, so I figured I would buy it again since Tinus always really loved that tree. I know, he didn't need it, but I like making him happy!
    Also finished a puzzle today. This one was pretty challenging (those flowers!!!) but it is sooo beautiful. Probably the prettiest picture I have done to date. Happy Wednesday everyone <3

    @Zaxa2021 we all go through this loss of focus. Give yourself some grace, it’s temporary and you’ll get that focus back. Try to do that 10 minute rule I shared earlier. Pick an activity and commit to 10 minutes and see how you feel after. Can you commit to another 10 minutes. I know you’re active with your little ones as you’ve shared. Life happens, accept that and make a specific, small achievable goal. Think about today—can you make a goal for a 10min span and then see it that was a good start or even continue on.

    @nancyinmo so glad to hear you’re safe after that horrible storm! You deserve a treat after being stuck in a hotel for 3 days with animals!
    It is hard to have control of eating when you’re in a hotel environment not in control of your own kitchen and meal prep.

    Go enjoy jazzercise! Great for physical, emotional and mental health! I would need that release or escape after your crazy week!

    Weigh-in on Tuesday
    PW: 185 lbs
    CW: 188lbs
    LTD: 2lbs

    Water retention and a GI issue :'( I guess I'll have a better loss next week all things considered.
    I took a break for the month of July, so am back for August!
    Cheers!
