    I am a 41 year old momma of 2. I have struggled with weight for years and each time I start watching my intake and exercise I cave to food for comfort a couple weeks. I know most tell you to just keep going but I need help with becoming mindful and not crumbling when I sway from the program once. It tends to be a vicious cycle for me to make an excuse, not be mindful and then hate myself for failing. Once I get thru these steps it is like was, rinse repeat all over again.

    My HW 257, LW 189 (2017) and CW 212.

    I ♥️ challenges! I need some TLC & motivation to help stay accountable/mindful. The struggle is REAL but I am determined to find my way to health and happiness!

    If you are looking for other female friends for challenges or support, add me!

    Same here, 40 year old dad, same 2 week crash, yikes even at 2 days lately. But now 2 weeks in a row almost perfect and 16 pounds down, 55 to go so still a long way. I'll add you to share kudos.

    Grear group!

    Water challenge was great and easy when focused on.

    Workout challenge was harder but forced myself to do it.

    Lets keep going with challenges! Also more checkins so I dont feel alone :blush:

    I have my annual physical tomorrow. Ugh. Not looking forward to it. I love my doctor because he doesn't sugar coat anything, but I know I need to lose weight. I'm working on it. And of course my monthly hormones are not working in my favor. The scale went up 3 lbs in 2 days. But I'm not letting it get me down (like i have in the past) because I've been meal prepping, food weighing/ logging for almost 4 weeks now. And even though the scale is barely moving, I've lost 2" on my waist so the scale can kiss my rear!

    I could get frustrated with myself because my scale states I'm up 3 lbs this morning. But I choose to live to my best ability. I celebrated 3 birthdays with people I dearly love this week! And I know that these highs and lows come and go....as long as I continue to track and be mindful of what's going on then I will not beat myself up over a gain. Here's to a new week 🙌!

    Weekly Weigh-In
    12/31 - 147.5
    01/07 - 146.2
    01/14 - 145.1
    01/21 - 144.4

    It’s snowing here today and the tiny gym in my apartment complex is completely packed with people who I guess didn’t want to drive to their legit gyms (I’m usually the only person there when I go) so my run has been postponed to tomorrow. Still got 30 Day Shred in though. Finally on level 3 and happy to say good-bye to level 2 forever - I seriously hated level 2. Back on track with counting my calories and feeling good about the upcoming week 😀

    Hey there, everyone. I’m Robin, 46. I just lost my mom in December to COPD (she was only 64; my dad passed at 58 from melanoma). I was my mom’s caregiver for her last 3 months &, with her passing, have inherited her 3 large dogs, 5 cats, & 19 birds (she was a bird breeder for 20 years). I’ve returned to work and have a lot on my plate, but I’ve also decided that I need to make my health a priority. I will gladly accept all forms of motivation lol. Hope everyone is staying warm and safe today!

    I keep trying to eat well and eat within my daily limit but it never seems to be enough to shut down the monster inside me screaming for takeaway again and again. I can cook but i HATE cooking for myself because i am always stuck with a family sized pack of food from the shop in the fridge saying eat me eat me. I am actually a chef by trade which makes it worse because i am always around food . its literally right in my face at work and when i get home i just want to eat because it is the only thing that makes me feel good. Even if there is something healthy in the fridge like right now chicken and veg i just want to go out get a large Cod and chips and a large batterd sausage with a load of sauce and some cokes and smash them down till i feel ill because it felt good while i was doing it! Please help.

    I've had my thyroid checked in the past. It's normal. I just have a 39 year old stubborn metabolism

    Well I've been yo-yoing for the past 7 years after losing 200 lbs on Medifast/Body For Life though I have consistently kept off 120 lbs. I've learned that all diets work, but the one that's for you is the one you can stick with. Hopefully I can keep going finally this time. Yes, it is in fact 80% diet.

    Wow...I also had the stomach flu. I lost 3 pounds but dont how how much will stick around. Today was first day eating again... weird... lots of food still sounds repulsive. I was just about to start keto and now meat and fat turn my stomach....so..... not sure what to do lol.

    Tomorrow I can start exercising again....I was on a great streak before the flu but trying not to get too depressed about that 😕

    Current goal....get back on the exercise wagon!

    So after the flu and losing7 pounds because of it, I was kind of depressed the last 3 days and 3 pounds came back on, but again healthy eating and guess what 1.5 pounds less today from yesterday, We just need to stick to it and results will come.

    Actually I've been reflecting on how I was eating and the diet was really before. I was on a diet to get as fat as i could as fast as I could....

    Keep it up.

    Hi my name is Robin and I struggle each and every day with food. I exercise 6 days a week but can't lose weight because I eat and eat. I have 5 kids and i'm an emotional eater so i'm always eating because at least one of my kids is causing chaos. I hate that i'm so attached to food but i'm really at last in a place where I want to commit at getting a handle on this. I set small easy attainable goals for myself every day and love to see what I've accomplished. I could really use the support and accountability.

    Hi Everyone,

    Great group. We all have daily struggles and life happens. This group helps!

    I am going to continue last weeks challenge that was focused on drinking water, moving everyday.

    I did not give up a food item last week. This week no sugar (no candy, sweets, chocolate, ice cream etc). This will be tough but looking forward to it.

    Anyone else doing the challenge??
