    Good attitude! Yes, women sure have their share or troubles with weight loss during different parts of each month.
    Here's to re-losing some of it or all of it next weigh in.

    Thank you! I honestly expect to lose it all by next weigh-in. My usual fluctuation is about 7lbs so I am happy to just see it was only 4 this time lol

    Just got off a Zoom call with my fitness coach. Tomorrow is the first day of my bootcamp and I'm super excited to start this new journey!! I have a workout plan as well as a meal plan. The meal plan is interesting since I'm such a picky eater and only have those few same foods I eat. This will all be new to me and this is the accountability that I need!!

    That's great that you have a fitness coach!
    Bootcamp will be an excellent workout.
    It's good that you have a meal plan.
    I am not great at pre-planning my meals but when I do I am much more successful with healthy eating and weight loss.

    I, too, am a picky eater, although I now prefer to say I have picky taste buds as it's just how I am internally and can't do much about it.
    I have re-tried foods that are healthy that I previously didn't like but I still don't like them.
    It's actually quite frustrating, especially since I dislike a lot of healthy foods and like a lot of unhealthy foods.

    I have found accountability super helpful.
    Lately I have less of it as people who previously held me accountable on MFP or challenged me are not on MFP much or at all due to the pandemic so I am am sometimes going down a slippery slope without the accountability.
    When I have had people hold me accountable in the past I have often been more successful in my weight loss journey and with eating better and exercising regularly.

    Mid-May Check-in

    With my state reopening next week, and things falling into order again, I am spending the day planning for life picking back up so fitness/health/self-care doesn’t take a backseat to daily responsibilities.

    I’ve incorporated listening to fitness-related podcasts and meditation into my routine, and I think it might be helpful to others; just a suggestion if you are looking for something different :)

    With two more weigh-ins left in the month, I want to make some leaps forward for myself and our group

    I agree with you on so many points!! I find when I pre-plan my food the day before I'm more successful staying on track with it. That has been my problem lately. I have not been focused and going off the rails.
    Accountability is absolutely key during a weightloss journey and this group has been super helpful lately!!!
    I like saying you have picky taste buds!!! I totally get it!!!

    Well done everyone on your results so far!
    I haven't had the best of weeks if I'm honest and was expecting a gain so I'm chuffed that I have a loss.
    I have been nursing a horrible migraine since last Thursday so there has been zero exercise and eating hasn't been as good as it would normally be :(
    I am feeling better today though so hoping to get back to eating properly and introduce light exercise

    Good luck everyone, here's to a fab week!
