    Can I join in please girls? My current weight is 79.3kg and my weightloss efforts went way off-track about a year ago. As of today I'm recommitting to the weightloss process with an aim of getting down to 57kg

    Oct Goal: trend around 156.0 lbs

    Well I am happy to see my weight has leveled out to 156.6 lbs. I've meal prepped for this week and changed my goal to -.5 lbs/week since I felt -1 lb/week was much too intense and not really sustainable for me anymore. Meal prepped for the week and getting in fruits and veggies and plenty of water. Settling back into the routine!

    Fairly certain it's bloat, I did drink quite a bit this weekend. I usually weigh myself every day and on Saturday morning I was at 176.8, funny how that works. I do need to kick up my cardio and continue my lifting. Last week my hamstrings were so sore I didn't work out for 3 days apart from the dog walks. Here's to a good week with choices that make me happy.

    Oct Goal: 167 - lose 8lbs
    Want to spend this month getting cravings and meals into a maintainable state - our whole approach to eating needs an overhaul. With both me and my other-half fully commited, we are focussed but not too strict as this needs to stick.

    Thanks for starting this thread. I’m ready to make some changes and need some help getting there. I do pretty well during the week but the weekends I end up caving.

    Back on track this week with food and logging. I’m super happy that I’ve added some running back in, the plantar fasciitis is getting better.

    Not much progress this week as Canadian Thanksgiving was over the weekend, but that's ok back on track. This will be my last month cutting, I am so done with this!

    Oct Goal: 62.9

    I feel stuck! The stick is completely a mental barrier. I keep sabotaging myself. I do well all week and allow myself freedom at the weekend which causes me to stagnate. I’ve been using stress as a reason for allowing this sabotage. On a positive note, I’ve been doing great at maintaining for the last 6 months.

    Good morning lovely ladies,

    Changes are happening very slowly here but as long as the weight goes down eventually I am okay with it.
    I decided to bite the bullet and really watch my calories' intake and stay away from my daily glass of wine with dinner. Even though I don't drink more than that (5 oz.) I realized that after I start to crave sweets and my strong will goes out the window. So now I dedicated a few specific days when I allow myself to have it. Yesterday I treated myself to a spa day and had a bit of my favorite red blend with dinner. I am happy to report that I didn't go overboard afterwards and only had to cookies! (Hehehe...)
    Today, back to the grind.

    Have a fantastic week and stick to those goals. We can do it!

    Changing my goal since I don't seem to be moving in the direction as quickly as I thought I would be. Also, I got sick on friday and I'm still getting over it. So here's a week of low impact and good choices.

    Logging everything and doing ok with macros & whole food choices but also working in the junk food. Had some sweet short trail runs & hikes on off days from lifting - it’s really fall and the trails are so pretty! The foot is still iffy but moderate cardio seems to help me stick to the right cals anyway. Funny how we learn these things.

    I'm new to the group. Didn't even realize they were a thing! But, I'm intrigued and willing to play along especially for the opportunity to be inspired by new forms of motivation. Let's see how this goes!

    Goal: Fit as hell! Lift all the weights! And jogging a 15K in March.
