Hey guys..... I’m back and restarting my old monthly challenges. I took a few month away as I became really ill and ended up hospitalised, but I’m back on good health with a lot of catching up and weight to lose!
So anyone who wants to join is more than welcome, its an open challenge for people to come and go as they please.
Post as much or as little as you like.
Use any format you like, I personally prefer this one.....

Original starting weight -
April starting weight -
1st -
8th -
15th -
22nd -
29th -
April goal -
Ultimate goal -

Simply because people can see your progress and cheer you on better or support you more!

Also feel free to post recipes you think people could benefit from, your mini goals and success, or even things your struggling with so people can offer advice on things that worked for them to give you something new to try :)

Good luck to anyone joining this challenge with me. I can’t wait to see your progress and cheer you on :) xx

    Thank you @SamanthaLouiseMenceI. I have been really bad since Covid-19 hit. Gained about 25 pounds that I wanted to lose. Going for 10 pounds this month since I traditionally lose a good chunk early and then plateau. Does anyone have a walking plan? I was looking for one that came in the email, but it didn't link to anything but the calorie and fitness tracker. I have a lot of change this month (last son is moving out on Saturday. Starting new job in two weeks, going back in to office vice working at home, etc.). I want to lower food intake and start reasonable exercise to reduce stress. All ideas are welcome!

    I’m doing this little workout routine every night for now..... it’s supposed to be good for weightloss so I’m giving it a go, might interest you
    20 squats
    20 push ups
    20 jump squats
    20 pike push-ups
    10 shoulder blade planks
    20 mountain climbers
    20 crunches
    25 burpees
    20 leg raises
    20 superman

    It works pretty much all your muscles apparently..... can’t hurt to try right? Lol
    Hope it’s helpful for you xx

    @SamanthaLouiseMence, I am so happy that you have recovered from such a long illness. Good to have you back!

    @SamanthaLouiseMence I'm in. Welcome back Samantha and thanks for offering the challenges again. You've been missed!

    @SamanthaLouiseMence Thanks again!!! As others have said, it's great to have you back.

    I did reach my previous UGW of 110 lbs in August 2020 but gained weight every month since and I felt 110 lbs was too low.

    I've found my new UGW (maintenance) aim of 115 to 120 lbs. I'm using Fitbod app in hopes of slowly gaining muscle as I reach for my new maintenance goal.


    Original starting weight - 147.4 lbs - Nov 2017
    April starting weight - 128.4
    April goal - 125.4

    Ultimate goal - 115 to 120
    Height - 5 ft
    Age Range: 30s

    April goal - 242lbs
    Ultimate goal - 140lbs

    1st - 242 lbs ......... ok, think I’m going to change my April starting weight to today’s weight since I’ve reached my April goal before April itself lol, I’m pretty sure it’s all water weight that I’ve just lost though.

    Total loss for April -


    And thanks everyone, it’s great to be back and tbh I’ve missed doing these monthly challenges too
    As well as missing all the amazing people who took part with me every month :) x
