    Hello all ! :)
    Feel free to add me to your friend list for additional support :D
    Are you doing some kind of sport this month to help in your weightloss? I'm following T25 and thinking about cizing it up to CIZE in the evening. I really want to start 2016 with a normal BMI, i've been working on it since the 3rd of November and i'm really close, only a few more pounds to lose.
    Here's to our lost pounds !

    Hi there!
    I'm Clarice and I really need this group to help keep me focused and motivated over the holidays!
    Height: 4'10"
    Starting weight, December 2: 146.5
    Goal weight by January 6: 136.5

    I will post:
    Dec. 9
    Dec.16
    Dec. 23 (out of town)
    Dec. 30 (out of town)
    Jan. 6!!
    I will need a lot of help getting through the work potlucks!
    My weight has been a complete yo-yo this past year. I lost 30 pounds (down to 118), then gained them all back. I'm considered obese, but ALL my weight is in my stomach. I just had some new clothes delivered mail order and XL doesn't fit over my belly even though I am not even five feet tall! My downfalls are ice cream, cookies, and Jamba Juice Bowls (960 calories in one of those puppies).
    I am still recovering from a month with bronchitis , so I haven't been exercising at all! I love Zumba but my workout clothes don't even fit! Excuses, excuses!
    Thank you in advance for advice, motivation, etc. I would love to have an accountability pal!

    Successes/struggles this week:
    I'm struggling in the evening. That's when I finally sit down to relax and was often when I'd snack. It's difficult retraining my brain and acknowledging that I'm not really hungry. It's just a bad habit. Slowly breaking that habit!
