    I can’t find spreadsheets anywhere.

    I had a look for you (should have done that in the first place, silly me) and you appear to be listed as weighing in Tuesday? Best if @johicks had a look for you & possibly change your day? Not sure that helps (or am I overstepping my place here?)
    Good luck.

    Never over stepping! Greatly appreciated, @Perla4686. Thank you.

    Do we have a list of weight in days? I had originally put Monday but said Friday was ok too because many people were weighing in Friday’s too. I’m just not sure when I should be weighing in 😊

    @kristynkayte ~ What day do you want to weigh-in. I can change to what ever you want. :)

    I'm sorry this is so delayed! But, I'm so excited to join this challenge, and this team! :smile:

    I'm Jill. 31 years old, momma to 3 boys...struggled with being overweight my whole life. I lost 108 lbs over the course of multiple years (and multiple pregnancies). But, recently gained back about 27lbs of that.

    Have been dealing with some health issues (unrelated to weight), and this is the kick in the butt I needed in order to get back on track to being the healthiest me possible!

    Can't wait to kick some butt! :smile:

    This is also why you need to check-in every day. Let the encouragement, support, and the daily mini-challenge posts recharge you for another day! Being part of a team of like-minded people will keep you going. We're doing this together.

    Remember we are . . .

    The three elements of what it takes to be successful at weight-loss and keeping it off are:
    Run -keep moving
    Track -know what you’re eating/ drinking
    Mind -train your brain to be positive about yourself and okay with change(s).

    Good Monday to all my wonderful @RunTrackMinds teammates!! I’ve increased my exercise a little bit and I love the feeling that my muscles are giving me. Not sore, just HELLO Lady! Lol ;)

    @jupdyke ~ Sunday ✅ You’re so diligent about getting in some exercise. My inspiration!
    @LululovinLife ~ A steady stay the same is better than again. :)
    @JammyPea ~ I didn’t realize we joined the group at the same time. Fun! I’m glad my ramblings are helpful. They keep me focused, too. Thanks for sharing and participating in the conversation. Yes, nights are the hardest for sure. I try to plan my meals for the entire day; then pack or plate what I can. Then there are no more decisions or thinking about food. At night I have created a routine that I am still working at doing diligently. I have sticky notes on my bathroom my wall to remind me when I get home from work! You’re doing great! Look at that…. Another loss! With social events in the week, too. Wooohoooo!! Keep coming here at night to CLOSE the kitchen! :)
    @wander216~ Great start to the challenge, posting and being part of the mini-challenge keeps you accountable. Yeah!!
    @LMDlove230 ~ Welcome, Jill! Great job on losing that 108# We’re here to help you get that 27lbs back off!! You can do it!
    @kristynkayte ~ Fridays will be your weigh-in day! :) You’re welcome.

    Anyone struggling with nights and want to challenge yourself? I am in another challenge that is simple and more of a reminder and for accountability than it is a challenge. There's not a lot of chit-chat like there is here. I like it as it's another way for me to track and be accountable, specifically for nights. Here is the thread. @JammyPea

    Hi team! My name is Jessica and I've been doing this challenge since March after getting serious about my weight loss journey in mid February. I had a come to Jesus moment with the scale and had been in serious denial leading up to that point. From February 2018 to this past February when I finally weighed myself I had switched from a full-time retail stock position, where I physically unpacked merchandise and prepared it for the sales floor, to a full-time desk job. Great for my career, horrible for my waist line! I also started a serious relationship and had a decent amount of relationship weight gain. I've lost up to 15 pounds at a time in the past focusing on extreme diet/lifestyle changes. This time I'm really trying to focus on balance and finding a way of living that is sustainable in the future, so far that has meant sticking closely to the plan Monday through Thursday, then relaxing a bit on the weekends. So far so good with a normal .5-1 lb a week of loss. I have noticed that Mondays I feel gross/bloated/blah if I go to off the rails all weekend, so I'm going to focus this month on only having one meal/ night out per weekend where I relax the reigns and staying on track the rest of the weekend.

    Daily Post (Sunday)
    Track: Yes
    Calories: Under, 1332/1380
    Day: Solid Sunday with a good mix of lazy relaxation and mild productivity to get ready for the week. BF came home from his parent's house with Indian food leftovers, so I couldn't resist having a little bit for lunch. I weighed it out and made an educated guess on which MFP entry to use. We then ordered hibachi and sushi take out. I thought I was starving but once I ate my one sushi roll I was stuffed! So I weighed out the hibachi to pack for lunch the next day.

    Managed to lose weight this weekend! WOOHOO! I usually gain a few water weight pounds after the weekend, so I am stoked that this weekend was a loss! Will help motivate me to stick with the new plan of limiting weekend cheats to one night only!

    Good morning everyone! Just checking in. So far, off to a great week. I am increasing my water intake (which was one of my goals for this challenge) and I will be tracking everything. Hoping to see some good loss this week.
    I am going to the gym tonight after work to walk for about an hour. In this New Orleans heat, I am not taking my butt outside for this walk. (I am usually an outside person and would rather exercise outside, but not today)
    I havent been in the gym for almost 2 months so this is big! haha

    Hope everyone has a fantastic day! Lets do this team!!!

    Good (almost) afternoon everybody! @johicks and @MaelynMayhem your replies are amazing, and help keep me motivated to keep going!
    I woke up this morning too late to go running because it’s already almost 90 degrees here, and I’m not trying to go running in that. I panicked for a minute about what to do, but then remembered I still have a wii with a dance game 😂😂😂, and if for some reason that doesn’t work I have an actual exercise dvd with Shaun T! Whew! I feel much better now! LOL
    Good luck, and happy losing everybody!!

    @jwall309~ I love how you talk about balance and how you feel after a weekend of not so great choices. Good meal planning/ prepping! I am trying to do more of that when hubby makes too many carbs for my liking. Awesome!!
    @Qbaimee ~ Good for you… 🚰🥤 How was the gym workout today?
    @klilev~ You did good while on travel. What can we do to help on weekends and at night? How about a nighttime routine? Or that Late night snacking thread I posted?
    @red1185~ Glad to hear that our posts are helping. That’s exciting to know. We want our @RunTrackMinds to be as successful as individuals and as a team! We all will be biggest losers!! Good back-up Plan A and B! What did you do to move?
    @jupdyke@~ Wow! And you thought you were gonna gain ;) Oh weekends. Right! You can do it.
    @Watchme1989~ Good start to the June challenge with a loss!! Family functions can be so hard!! Hopefully, we can help you figure out some strategies for future ones. Oh and PW = Previous weight. So next week your PW: 296.2 (this week’s current weight). :)
    @Toyota100 ~ You’re so close to that under 220 goal! Have you set any other goals that are non-scale? Good loss, way to start the month.
    @Nige1313~ Great day!!
    @Perla4686 ~ Good job with your calories and exercise!
