Hey guys, just to keep us accountable we'll be weighing in weekly on Fridays!
(No biggy if you weigh in on a different day, just don't forget to share!)

Please post here to do so :)

    Are we doing SW as the SW we are now starting the challenge at? and then GW for the GW of -55lbs?

    If you want to do the starting weight as what it was was the day you started the challenge that would work :) and then your CW would be what it is when you weigh in on Friday, and then GW would be what your GW is for Sept 1st :)

    Changing behaviors:
    1. Start very small
    2. Do only one change at a time
    3. Be present and enjoy the activity - do not focus on results
    4. Be grateful for every step you take

    My change for this next week - make sure there are 2 fruits and 5 veg in the house for each day-ready to eat.

    I think this accountability will be very helpful to me. Thanks for setting it up.

    I moved my weigh in day so I could be on track with the group. Not a big loss, but I'll take any number that's less than the than the previous! ;)

    Struggles/Success: These go hand in hand for me this week. Food is always my biggest struggle, especially as I shop and cook for our extended family. I was so proud of my shopping cart...until I started on the rest of the families list. I don't even like pop tarts, but boy do they look good sometimes!

    Great work everyone! :)

    Today is my first official day, so I am using today's weight of 231 as my start. I started MFP at 260.
    SW: 231
    My entire household has been sick on and off for the past 3 weeks. Need to get back in to exercise mode even if just 15 min to start. Happy Esster everyone!

    I gained this week do to indulging in homemade smoke fish and that time of the month should be arriving soon this weekend.


    Struggles- staying positive, not sure how much more winter I can take. I just want to get back outside with my littles.

    Successes- inches have come off, not enough for me to drop a size or feel great but it's a awesome feeling to see the tape go down in inches. Really Keeps me focused.

    @Amay33 you are the second person I have seen on here to do inches! I think I may have to take some measurements!!!
