    Hello, I'm Stormy. I'm a 73-year-old grandfather from Eastern Washington State. I'm 5'4" tall and my claim is that I am not too heavy, I'm just too short. I am looking forward to posting with this group as we work on moving our height and weight in a healthy normal direction.

    See you all back here on Jan 1st.

    Welcome Stormy! You sound like an amazingly funny grandpa. So glad you’ve joined.

    Hi, I'm a 50+ yo married female, 5'6", and tired of looking and feeling like I do. I’m making changes to get out of the Obese category, to look good in my clothing, and to have confidence in public again.

    Looking forward to kicking off January with this challenge.

    Hi- joining for 2024! I'm 66, 5' 1", been as high as 160 and appear to be heading there again if I don't make this change.
    CW 146
    GW 125-130, maintaining under 130.

    I was there in summer 2022, want to be there in summer 2024, losing 2-4 lbs/mo. I want to change my habits even more than losing the weight- evening eating has been my downfall. I will weigh in on Mondays starting 1/1/24. Hope that will keep me accountable on weekends!

    Goal for January:
    kill the after dinner cravings
    no wine except when out
    keep up workouts and water
    get on the scale every day; log once a week.

    1/1/24
    1/8
    1/15
    1/22 (away)
    1/29

    Happy to have this challenge, thank you!

    Since March I have been writing a montly reflection - this month - reflected on the year. Thought I would share as my introduction.

    2023 Reflection

    What a year it has been. In January my husband went back to work on a temporary assignment for six months. It was the first time in my life that I was alone most of the day. I thought it was the perfect time for me to focus on me for a change and vowed to lose weight, get healthy, give up some bad habits, and exercise. I started walking every day and found a tracker to record my yearly miles. I started with a goal of 1,960 miles in 2023. My weight loss goal was to get out of the obese category – which would mean about 60 pounds. When Greg’s assignment was over, I was worried that I would fall back into the old routine – but happily he not only supported my quest to get healthy, he joined me every day for my AM walk (weather permitting)!

    Since moving to East Hampton 20 years ago, I have had this thought about walking the entirety of the Airline trail from East Hampton to Willimantic. I also thought this was the perfect opportunity for me to accomplish that. I started the trek on January 23. I posted my intention on Facebook to keep me accountable and blogged about my daily adventures. I completed the 62-mile journey on February 22, averaging a little over 2.5 miles per day and lost 14 pounds in the process. I thought, “what now”?

    I found My Fitness Pal and started tracking my daily calories. This wasn’t motivating enough, so found the challenges forum on the site and thought let’s give it a try. I was addicted. I joined many challenges on the site – too many. I have my favorites – two that are competition based, The Biggest Loser Challenge and the Hogwarts Challenge. They make losing weight and exercising fun. I liked them so much that I became a co-captain of the BLC challenge. I chose this one because Hogwarts is too creative for my mathematical brain to be a leader - LOL. I also am fond of a couple others (Fat to Fit and the 5% challenges) which are a lot less intense. The last two tend to overlap with my favorites, so aren’t too hard to manage. I am also in a support group, for friendship and encouragement. I know it seems like a lot – but I love it, it keeps me motivated, and most importantly they are working for me!

    In October I met my 60-pound loss goal, and I added a new goal, another 28 pounds to get in the ideal range. I have lost 64 pounds so far, another 24 to go to meet my goal. I met my 1,960 miles in 2023 goal in October, upped the goal to 2,023 and met that in November. I ended the year with a little over 2,500 miles.

    What are my plans for 2024?
    • Starting the year with a 10K walk in January 1
    • I will reach my goal weight – hoping by my birthday in August; then the maintenance period – which I’m thinking will be just as hard, if not harder.
    • I am continuing with my groups on My Fitness Pal.
    • I am also feeling very nostalgic and decided to do the Airline Trail again – this time Greg is joining me. Can’t wait – he is a little under the weather at the moment – will start when he is healthy.
    • I signed up for the 2,024 miles in 2024. I was going to change to intentional walking only, but the 2,023 routine worked for me so I’m going to do the same for 2024.
    • I am going to focus a little more on nutrition this year, not just calories-in, calories-out. I think in the beginning of the year I will just monitor it – see how close I am to getting my recommended macronutrients goals, then adjust as I become more familiar with it.
    • Try to get at least 6 glasses of water in.
    • Strength train 3 days/week, flex 1 day.
    • Read a little more.
    • Have some fun.

    Hi, this is my first time in this challenge and I'm very happy to be here! I'm 66 YO, 5' 2" and officially overweight (again). I've been through the yo-yo weight gain and loss too many times and it's not healthy. I gained 15 lbs in the last year and a half, and if I don't change my habits I'm headed for worse.

    My goal for 2024: to gradually lose the weight by changing the habits that hurt me and to learn how to integrate and maintain healthy eating habits for good.

    My goals for this month:
    • continue my exercise routine- which has been pretty good
    • eliminate evening snacking- which is my downfall
    • weigh every day- which I avoid and then gain
    • log in here every week on Monday so I can't pretend the weekend is "free"!

      Starting weight: 146.5
      Goal weight: around/under 142

      1/1: 146.6
