    Kept moving around all day! Went for a nice walk and did aerobics! Deleted all my social media (but I am keeping fitness pal) so I’m not distracted or feel down in any way.

    Great! I love walking. Tomorrow will be a nice day in Chicago so I will go for a walk.

    Good morning! I went for a nice walk around a lake. It is so beautiful today. I also haven’t had alcohol since Saturday. Every time I have wine I ended up eating more. I lose control of my calories. I am trying not to eat anything past 8:00 pm which helps me with my snacking. You are doing a great job!

    So I have been on a plateau for about a month. I keep bouncing between 158-160lbs. I think I might be recomping a little, since I'm on week 4 of a new lifting program, but it's still frustrating. I recently switched up my calorie goals, so hopefully that helps. This morning I was 158.0lb, so I'm going to start from there and hopefully get to 143lb by the end of June!

    I’ve been there before. Sometimes we need to make some changes to our exercise routine/calorie goals. How many calories are you consuming per day? . June 30th seems a reasonable amount of time to achieve your your goal of 143.

    I actually just changed up my calorie allotment. I was doing 1400/day and ate back exercise calories. Last week I decided to change to calorie zig zagging throughout the week. Now I am eating avg 1650 calories daily (tdee with exercise is around 2200), and not eating back exercise calories. My daily calorie allotment varies from 1400 -2000. I was down a little this morning, so hopefully that trend continues and this was the change that I needed!

    Hey everyone, I'm down a pound today but I was bold last night and drank more than I should have so I'll probably be back up tomor :neutral: . Alcohol is my biggest problem with my weight. I love a glass of wine or a few whiskeys listening to music with the hubbie when the kids have gone to bed. I intend cutting back on the alcohol but I know I will struggle with this especially during lockdown. My calories go crazy though due to it so I have to cut back. Does anyone else struggle more with alcohol calories more than food calories?

    Hi Grace! I was having a couple glasses of wine every couple of days and I gained weight. My issue is that when I drink wine, I eat more calories as I snack on cheese, crackers etc . I stop having wine a week ago and lost 3.8 lbs. it was my first week so it mostly water loss. Let’s see how I do this week. My husband also gained weight so we are both avoiding alcohol which helps. I am drinking ice water in a fancy glass wine 😃

    Hello everyone!

    Weekends are usually difficult for me as I eat more than during the week. I will keep up with my food plan and I am planning to walk later today. We can do this!! 😊

    Can I join? I realize I've been gaining and losing the same 40 pounds for 9 years. Enough. I've had it. I had surgery in January on my knee and I am ready to exercise again. Just bought a magnetic stationary bike and I am out there doing yard work and walking. I want to get in shape.

    Well done, I believe knee surgery is very painful. Lets do this together, check in every day, I'll do it too ;)
