    Not the best of days to weigh-in being Boxing Day and having had a 2 day blow-out but Saturdays work best for me the rest of the year so I'm carrying on regardless.

    SW: 157
    26th Dec/CW: 154
    GW: 127

    I'm only a pound up on Christmas eve morning so I'm very happy with that.

    Currently 6 days into a 30 day 5k run challenge as seen on YouTube to kickstart my fitness since my gym closed due to COVID laws the same day I signed up.

    Merry Christmas to all who have been celebrating!

    Merry Christmas Lorna,

    Yesterday was off the rails, but I went back and logged everything this morning. I went way over my calories, but I feel so much better now that I logged. I also took a nice 1/2 mile walk with my dog Roxie, so we’re starting today off on the right foot.

    Congrats on your 6th day of your 5k run challenge. Exercise is such a good mood booster.

    Jill

    Hello to all! I am new to MFP community. I’d love to add friends. In 2020 I managed to lose about 45 pounds and unfortunately back-slid plenty. Overall, a net loss of 30 for 2020, but I was under my goal when my diet went off the rails. I’ll own it - I kept running but was eating pretty much anything. I’m probably lucky the results weren’t worse. I’ve a weakness for sugar. So, I’m buckling down again for 2021. I haven’t been super specific about my goals, and I think that’s hurt me. After hitting the low I did back in July, I’ve edited my goal. I do think I can knock off the nearly another 30 for 2021 - IF I work consistently at it. It’s work - but it’s worth it. I’m in for 2021.

    Sugar is my weakness too...I think I'm addicted...I have to go cold turkey and not have it otherwise if I have one small bite, I'm a goner! lol Yay to 2021!!!!

    I'm in. I haven't been active on MFP for a couple of years because i was busy having babies. I managed to get through the first pregnancy with minimal weight gain but I'm 5 weeks post partum now and I weight 187lbs. I want to get down to at least 160.
    Exercising is difficult as the baby feeds 24/7 so I cant leave him but hoping that will ease soon.
    I'm giving myself till jan 1st before I start bit it will be good to have a group then to keep me accountable.

    oh I am definitely in. I just came back to MFP after a few years and looking forward to meeting some great people who can keep me accountable and me do the same for them :) I will weigh in on Jan. 1st....it's been awhile since I stepped on the scale monster but I believe I will be starting around 235lbs.

    Hi! I'm back as well from a long absence. Lost 30 pounds a few years ago by logging, exercising (mostly walking), routines, reducing wine, eating serving sizes. Since March 2020, now up to 225 and it's definitely got to go! Covid will end and I'm gonna be ready!!!

    Good morning!

    I’ve been searching YouTube videos for 7 minute low impact all standing workouts and haven’t found any I like so far, so I’m asking you all to see if you’ve found anything you like in this regard.

    Post it if you have.

    I would like to join the 30 pound challenge. Do I have to do something special to join?

    Good morning and Happy New Year’s Eve!
    We are 1 day from our official start of the 2021 30 pound challenge, and I am getting ready to start the new year off on the right foot.

    I’ve got a meal plan in place for the first week in January, so I pick up my Clicklist full of fruits, veggies, chicken and lean ground beef this afternoon.

    Roxie and I started today with a 45 minute walk. It’s 28 degrees this morning, but Roxie absolutely loves to be outside no matter the weather. 4,800 steps in and it not even 9am!

    I have let myself slide for the last 2 weeks in regard to logging and staying within my calorie goal...so I’m totally motivated to get in gear for the new year!

    My goals for 2021 are:

    •30 minutes of exercise/day— 10,000 steps
    —walking my dog
    —YouTube videos of walking/dance workout—. low impact on icy days.

    •Logging truthfully and consistently
    —logging as I go
    —staying under my calorie goal—no foods are off limits— just being mindful and counting it

    •Meal planning to take off stress of what’s for dinner when I get home from work at 7pm

    •Drinking more water and logging it

    •Keeping in contact with this amazing group of like minded friends. We’re here for each other and this is our year!
    —Checking in daily
    —posting YouTube videos to share
    —celebrating our successes

    I look forward to seeing you all in 2021!!

    Jill☕️🌟

    Okay, my resolution for 2020 was to reach my goal weight. And I was nearly there, then I went way off the rails around Thanksgiving and have gained 20 pounds back! Ugh. Know what? New Year's is a great new start!

    My goals for 2021:

    1. Reach my goal weight...FINALLY!

    2. Run a half marathon.

    3. Support my weight loss friends here in kicking butt in the new year, too :)

    Hello Jill, there is a YouTube channel by Lucy Wyndham-Read, who creates 7-minute workouts. She has quite a variety. I have only done one, flat abs or something like that, and it was all standing. I don't know if anything she has on her channel is what you are looking for, but you can find her here:

    Thanks so much for sharing! This is exactly what I was looking for short bursts of exercise— I just tried this one and it’s awesome!


    Can’t wait to try some more for toning!

    I'll join in with all of you starting tomorrow. I'm Bill age 72. I'd lost 49 lbs. and was doing great at keeping if off. Then, had some surgery recovery time off, my fitness studios closed because of covid, blah, blah, blah, so lost motivation and packed on some weight. Weigh in date will be Sunday, starting wt. 189.

    Goals;
    More water, I'm a diet soda addict.
    Add more cardio and weight lifting.
    Cut out junk food, I'm vegan, but still need to eat cleaner!
    Stay injury free, I'm in 3 running/walking challenges ( I'm a trail runner ), so need to be careful. The trails were very icy when I was out today.

    Plenty more to work on for sure.

    Glad to be here!

    Happy New Year everyone! :)
    I started a bit early so I'm drawing a line and restarting today.
    SW: 151.25 lbs
    GW: 121.25 lbs

    I have 2 little black dresses I bought off ebay which I daren't put on properly for fear of ripping them which are UK size 12. I'd like to fit these for a possible posh dinner in the Autumn. I'm signed up for a couple of 10ks, a half-marathon and a full marathon in October. I used to run occasionally if I had a race booked but not otherwise. I want 2021 to be the year I'm consistent.

    I've also given myself sub-goals with non-food rewards:
    lose 5lbs- nice Balega running socks
    lose 14lbs (one stone)- new sports bra
    lose 28lbs (two stone)- new running shoes
    lose 30lbs - might be able to fit into the size 10 items in my wardrobe back at mum's.
