    Motivation Monday ....

    If you don't know what an "instant gratification monkey" is (because you haven't already watched this Ted Talk when I first posted it on pg 3) please do so .... then answer the following question inside the spoiler

    Who would YOUR instant gratification monkey run to at the finish line, and what would that person be holding or take over from your Try To Avoid Doing List?

    I also have 2 really bad knees that need to be replaced. I went to the Doctors and they won't Operate until I lose another 55 pounds. I really need to have this surgery done. I am in so much pain that its really hard to move or exercise.

    Welcome. The good news is that you already know you can do this!

    Question ... do you have a pool available? Before I had tkr, I found that it was a great way to exercise since it puts a lot less stress on my knees. Also, if you Google "exercises before knee surgery" you will find some things you can do sitting that will really help strengthen legs. Anything you can do before surgrey to improve fitness will pay off in spades during rehab.

    The surgery, BTW, was the best thing I every did.

    Is it too late to join? If not I included the info you asked for . If its too late no worries


    Username: Matthewsfive
    Weigh in day: Saturday
    Starting weight: 259.2 (on Feb2nd)
    Current Weight: 254.6 ( of Feb9th )

    @matthewsfive - this is your new team. i have added you to our spreadsheet.

    I am a little confused as feb 9th will be your week 1 weigh in but we are still only feb 3rd today. Is this your goal weight?

    While we wait for you to clear this up i will be using 259.2 as your starting weight which should have been taken yesterday Feb. 2.

    Sorry for the confusion, I am not sure why I did that either. Here is the correction

    What a start to WEEK 1 !

    We have new members, new acronyms, a full step team, and lots of great chat. I am really inspired.

    As to our search for someone to be co-captain, I really love doing the spreadsheets (both weights and stepping, etc.) and generally chiming in, cheering on, and enjoying the group every day. What I would love a co-captain to be able to do are the beautiful posts like @mari_moulin does ( <3 ) and finding thoughtful questions, challenges, and ways to keep the whole team posting and involved if possible. Even someone new could step up and give this a try if you have time - I started as co-captain during my first month, and it has been a blast. Of course, I'm retired and don't have small kids, jobs, and all those other life challenges! That is why I'm happy to keep on the day-to-day stuff like the spreadsheets. Let us know if you're interested to give it a try. If not - no worries, I'll keep bumbling along and you won't get as many pretty pictures. :p

    Some other ideas for adding more steps and general motion to your day:
    • Pace or walk up and down stairs while brushing your teeth. Or march in place with high knees if you don't want to go running around the house with toothpaste drippage. Two full minutes!
    • Use your cordless or cell phone and walk the whole time you're talking.
    • Every time you sit down, do it a few times - don't quite touch the chair if you can! Voilà, you are squatting. 5-6 squats every time you aim for a chair - and your day just got better.
    • Dance with your kids! Make them laugh their heads off at your ultra cool moves! Get them to love those tunes!
    Have a fun day.

    I send you a PM Did you receive it?

    Hi all! Hope everyone is doing well!

    My first weight in is tomorrow and I'm a little nervous for it. I've actually been on point with everything but I'm retaining water like crazy despite drinking over a gallon a day. Hopefully it will work itself out by tomorrow.

    I got my workout done early and boy, did it kicked my butt. I am doing Liift4 and today was leg day 😵. I am now recuperating on my couch with my water dreading standing up lol.

    Good luck to everyone with the upcoming week. Let's show it who's boss!
