    Only half my comment posted grrr.

    Our new team challenge starting Saturday is to drink at least 8 glasses of water (I'm aiming for 4 pints) and to set yourself a step target that means you do more than normal (for me I'm aiming for at least 10,000 a day).

    We have some brilliant losses this week., go Team Slimsons. One person left to weigh in, I tried to send him a message to remind him but I get 'unknown user' so not sure if that means we've lost him

    You're doing a fantastic job as team captain. Keep up the good work.

    Hope everyone is having a happy healthy weekend. I've managed to smash my step target, 14,940 on Saturday and 22,782 today. Back at work tomorrow so will be much harder. Just managed my 4 pints h2o each day

    Got my steps in today. I took another hike over 4 miles. I have been drinking water like crazy with the sun out shining. I can't seem to get enough today.

    I'm trying to hit my step goal. The last 2 days I did not. I was just not feeling it. I have also been struggling to get my water in. I did drink 80oz yesterday but my goal is a gallon. Today is a new day and I'm gonna try really hard to do better. I have been working my *kitten* off to loose weight. I have not been under 270 in like 8 years. It feels great. I'm gonna keep pushing. I can do this!!!

    Congrats @vbugsmom for getting under 270! Yes, you can do this!
    Congrats @carrie1829 for getting your steps and water in!
    I see you @Suzmom23! You're kicking some serious butt!
    Hey there @dillyg08 & @healthy4me4ever!

    Feeling good. Thanks to the team challenge I not only got my steps in today but also made up my deficit from yesterday. I got home at 8pm today and had only done 5,500 steps. Instead of sitting down and staying put (my normal behaviour) I went for a walk and ended up on 13,354, making up for only 7,026 yesterday. Thank you fellow team mates for the silent push.

    Oh and I also hit my water target both days. Now off to bed.

    By the way amazing loss @doitnow0216

    I did not get my steps in or my water. My son had s severe allergic reaction from penicillin. So I was at the hospital with him. Poor baby is doing much better now.

    So sorry to hear about your son @vbugsmom, glad he was better later. I know from experience with my nephew how scary witnessing a severe allergic reaction can be

    @vbugsmom and @doitnow0216 wake up to a new day and try again . At least the challenge is making you focus on both things and that can only be a good thing.

    @vbugsmom Sorry to hear that your son went through that but glad he's doing better now. That couldn't have been pleasant for you either. I know you must have had to stay a long time at the hospital.

    As it turns out, the steps wasn't the only mishap I had yesterday. I ended up burying myself in Blue Bell ice cream later last night. I have a lot to make up for today! I'm going to work really, really hard the rest of the week. I expect to still have a good loss.
