    I joined around this time last year (i dont know if you guys remember me) but after having trouble loosing, i gave in and gave up. I started the challenge at 159 and just couldn't seem to kick this weight up until April. Come July I reached 177 and kicked myself into high gear and now I am in a happier, healthier place at 144. I would like to recommit to this challenge. Please sigh me up

  • Does anyone use Instagram? I created an account to post food, motivation, and be encouraged by others with similar goals. I don't do or follow coaching or products, simply there to learn and be motivated. My account is shelleyinher40s. I think it would be fun to have a hashtag we can use for the challenge!

    @ShelleyModisette - I'm jennisaysjump_sw on Instagram (I've followed you), my account is for my weight loss journey.
    For a hashtag, maybe something like #52in52, #52lbs52wks, #52lbsin52wk, maybe?

    This week's successes: Just joined the website/app
    This week's challenges: writing down all what I eat, including coffee. And also I find the website a little weird, I’m supposed to be eating around 3000 cal because I am active person. And I don’t think I’ll be able to eat that much calories if I’m eating healthy

    Count me in. My son is 6 months post treatment for Accute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, and since the day of his diagnosis, I've gained 50 lbs. I finally feel like I can refocus on myself for the first time in over 2 years. ❤️
