Any Teachers out there?

I am a 2nd grade teacher needing to lose 30 pounds. Is there anyone who would be interested in adding each other as friends for motivation?

    I teach kindergarten and I just logged back in to this site yesterday. I have been on WW for over a year and am gaining and losing the same 10 lbs over and over again. I need to lose about 60 lbs. Anyone can feel free to add me as a friend!

    Me! Middle school teacher - Please add me. My biggest challenge is drinking water (as if we could go to the bathroom any time we want) and portion control. I need to lose 25 pounds. I think I found a system which works for me, but it takes a lot of prep.

    I'm a high school teacher. I will shed 15 pounds in 4 to 6 weeks by tracking my weight once a week and adjusting eating and exercise accordingly. My lesson planning schedule and other professional development responsibilities have no impact on my weight as I have gotten better about stressing less and just doing it, so thank goodness for that. I am happy now to start fresh and keep it going. Best wishes, ya'll!

    I am a full-time sub (High-school now, but I have done Pre-K thru 12 over the last 4 years). I am on my 3rd trip through losing 25-30lbs. I have done it successfully twice, but every time is harder. I hit the big 5-0 this summer and this has got to be my last time down this road! Please feel free to add me-the more the merrier!

    I’m a K teacher who just resigned... The stress of all of it was taking too much of a toll on me both mentally and physically, and had so many behavior problems it was making it impossible to do my job effectively. It was a very hard decision but I’m going to take this time off to look for something else and get back on the fitness train. Would love to have some support and join you guys on this journey🤗
