    Had a bit of a tough food week with a date last night and having to have a work meal so this week I'm going to be EXTRA focused on calories and get my butt to the gym 4 days at least.
    Still a small loss is a loss ☺

    Hi All! Below is my story...

    I am Mark from Australia. I am currently 110KG (242lbs) and at my heaviest a few years ago was 117kg. I did get down to 102kg while I was training for a cancer fundraising ride however my mind and wilpower got the best of me and I have put back on 8kg (17lbs). I have two beautiful daughters (age 6 and 4) and have been happily married for 12 years. My biggest hurdle is my wilpower to do with portion sizes. Instead of a row of chocolate ( suggested serving) it's not uncommon for me to have the whole block. Things like this need to change. I have said it before but never seem to follow through. Hopefully this group helps me in that change.

    I just started up my riding again to and from work (total 22km or 13miles) so hopefully with this exercise two or three times a week and the fact I am a male, I hope to really drop this weight quickly. I predominently shift between two diets (again my stupid brain) which is a shake type diet with shake for brekky and lunch and low carb dinner for dinner.

    My goal is to lose 8KG in April. :smiley:

    Hey everyone!

    This is my very first challenge and I'm going to give it my all!

    My name is Kassandra and 2 years ago I was halfway to my goal weight - then life happened and I got side tracked :(.

    I'm back at it and want this because I want a family soon, I want to be healthy and strong for my children as they grow up.

    I love having MFP friends, motivators and people who need motivation - feel free to add me :)

    We got this people !! GO TEAM SLIMSONS!!!!

    Hi Team Slimsons!!

    Some of you may already know but for those that don't I'm a single mom (age 45) of 2 beautiful kiddos (age 6 and 2) A couple weeks ago on a rainy day stuck inside we decided to do arts & crafts. I wanted to share our masterpiece with you in hopes it gives you motivation too. They are my motivation on a daily basis and now they have also contributed to my workout motivation. Here is what my treadmill spot is decorated with. I watch tv through my whole workout but the last 10-15 minutes can be grueling at times. Now when I look at the wall in front of me I'm reminded of what my workout contributes to. :smile:

    Been for a gym and swim today. Feeling nervous for weigh in on Friday as I had 1 bad food day, fingers crossed the exercise this week will have made up for it. How's everyone else doing?

    I'm nervous for my weigh in tomorrow. My grandma came for a visit. I had not seen her in 3 years. I still tracked my calories, but I did go over a couple of days. I also was not able to go to the gym. I did get my steps in though. Let's hope I did not do to bad.
