    Day 1 and 2 done. Only 6 days in to Keto WAO and i feel absolutely fantastic! Alert, energised, and most importantly for me i am in control. The scales are irrelevant compared to the boost that feeling gives me.
    I still attend Slimming World - yes, i know its a bloody awful plan - but i do better when i am monitored, and i enjoy the company - and after 6 days i am 6lb down. I know this will obviously slow, but it has given me that 'check' that loss is achievable whilst eating such delicious food.
    Loving the sticky threads - my current bedtime reading until this can become entrenched.
    Feeling happy happy happy!!

    I have had to walk food out to the dumpster on several occasions due to a crazy idea that I could eat normally.
    I decided my body and my goals were more important than wasting a little food.
    No regrets.

    Day two I met two of my 3 goals
    1. Get 64 oz of water in made it over 80oz
    2. Work out. I actually ended up working out twice today. I'm sore beyond belief.
    3. Stay at 100 carbs or less. I went over do to dinner with friends so 1 finished out the day at 135 total carbs. It's probably less of I go by net.

    Tomorrow, will be better. I plan on hitting all 3 goals.

    I'm late to the party but I am in!
    My goals for March is to trust the process. I've been doing this for 2 was and haven't seen much of a loss. (If anyone could give me tips-I'd be very appreciative.
    20-30 net carbs per day.
    Stick to my calories (I know this is a terrible question but do you all add back in movement and exercise calories?-my garmin connected automate does-but I can turn that off-I just don't know if I should).
    More WATER. I'm not a thirsty person. I probably get 6 classes in a day-but I feel like I should be doing more.
    Move more and get more organized!!!

    Met all 3 of my goals on March 2nd. Last night I had a couple of close calls on my carb and calories goal. I almost shoved some m&m's in my mouth (which for me would lead to a downward spiral of binging for the rest of the night) that were calling my name but I reminded myself how i would after and walked away.

    hi all! new to this group and a few days late, but i'd like to join in

    I'm just getting back to eating LCHF after having a baby 2 months ago, so my goal for March is to get fully back on track.

    1) to log every bite of food at least 5 days a week (i'm always mindful of what i eat, just not always good at writing it down)

    2) to start loosing weight again (I've actually gained 8 lbs since my baby was born b/c I was eating things I shouldn't)

    3) to try and hit my Fitbit step goal at least twice a week

    Ate chocolate biscuits, again....
    (****hangs head in shame***** )

    Yesterday was good, today not so much. But! I can still get my water in and ensure my carbs don't go over 60g.

    So far not so good for my goals... :)

    Still doing fine on my eating/macros, etc. which was not the goal, but the goal was to get some exercise in and boy has that not happened.

    Blaming it on the stupid spring allergies which should not be happening since it's still WINTER, but really it's just meet not getting off my butt. :)

    I'm in. I'm still fairly new to this WOE, but I think I've gotten the gist of it. Now to work on my two biggest struggles
    1. Exercise
    2. Less coffee, more water! I really need to monitor my liquids.

    I finally dropped .4 lbs which is minimal but I have worked very hard and I'll take it! I got my morning set of Kettlebell workout done and will get ready now to go for my first walk. Right now it's only 5°F and with winds gusting at 15 mph it feels more like -5°F. I can hardly wait for warmer weather! My meals are planned for the day and I will be under 30 g of carbs. Good luck everyone!

    I'll do an 800 minute Shape Up, Mix-It Up March:

    Walking: Today 19 minutes, (1.24 miles, 3.91 mph. Round trip to library.)
    Physical Therapy Resistance Bands: Today 30 minutes.
    Pilates:Today 30 minutes

    Zumba: 16 min.
    Stationary Recumbent: 20 min.
    Low Impact Aerobics: 25min.
    Basic Body Flex Stretches: 15, 10 min.
    Yoga
    Body Resistance Exercises (which I hate)
    PiYo
    Piloxing
    Kettlebells- maybe. Depends on the arm
    7 Minute Workout App (android)

    Pilates on youtube. "pilateslearn". "Pilates 30 minutes Exercises Full Workout". Pretty basic to get started again. On another thread, mentioned something about PiYo. Facepalm. I was thinking of Piloxing which is a combo pilates/boxing. PiYo is Pilates/Yoga. I've not tried PiYo. Yet.

    ok im in

    my main focus in march is as follows:

    1. Daily exercise in the form of a walk the aim being to make this a routine part of my day and not an act just to loose weight.
    2. to loose over a stone in weight - I'm just starting out hence this may not be as challenging as it seems
    3. To go low carb in March - I have allowed myself some off days eg my birthday, weddings Liverpool home games, which adds up to 4 days - so success would be 27/31.

    I will post every week with an update.

    I'm a newbie here and I have seen more than one person mention them taking collagen. Is this a supplement that is something that LC people do?

    A little late, but I started back up on keto on Tue., so this challenge is great! I'm only 3 days in, but I'm feeling good!
    1) Drink min. of 80 oz of water.
    2) Start strength training 4 days/week (2 upper/2 lower).
    3) Carbs 20g net, per day.
    4) Cut back on dairy.
    5) Start waking up at 5am to workout. If I wait until the evening, I find every excuse not to do it.
